Track Name: Picnic Hook
Well the time was never right
And then I heard that you were leaving
And the chance never arrived
And now I heard you’re leaving

Well I heard that you were shy
So I wanted you to believe me
But I took up too much time
Cause now I heard you’re leaving


I lost my heart to California
She rides the wind in sun colored skin
She was the one for me but now she is so far
Those sun-cracked lips are those I’ll never kiss
I am too old now to try so hard

Well the time was never right
And I wanted you to believe me
And I should of spoke my mind
Cause now I heard you’re leaving
Track Name: Dream within a Dream
The sun in your hair
You’re wavering
Head for the eye of the storm
Cause the wreck is your home

The tide rolls in
You’re still with him
All your looks my way
Have gone stiff in the breeze



All the stars in the sky
Are glad I can’t find love
Track Name: It's Alright
It’s alright it’s alright
It’s alright it’s alright

Still you call for more of their blood
Call them unpatriotic if they question why
While you waste your lives talking celebrity gossip
As the machinations of freedom take more lives
While I kill, I can’t help but questions all these lies of war

It’s alright it’s alright
It’s alright it’s alright
Track Name: Holding Hands
Holding hands on the ice rink tonight
Watch our breath turn to light
Holding hands in the evening

You are such beauty
But you won’t always be

Can’t decide if you are right by my side for now and forever
But I’ve been sick and you stayed

Whisper close to me
Stay close to me
Don’t leave me

You asked me to marry but I couldn’t say
Staring at the ground a shocked look on my face
You asked me first what I long thought I’d say
Suddenly that moment, I felt afraid
I’m not so sure we haven’t seen the end
Take me away for as long as you can
Cause I’m a sure thing at the end of the day
Just playing my guitar on the street in the rain
Track Name: Heart in Mouth
I followed thus far the dreams that came to me when I was twelve
And now I’ve seen a million flags, spoke the knowledge of many lands

My heart caught fire and burned my teeth, tongue, and insides
And while I’d love to fly with you I have trapped distant sand in the

It’s the night that gets me high
Throw my heart into your mouth to stop the lies
And all the times we shared so far
But you’re a dream and I am real, so I decline

The tide has brought the message that I have strayed too far
And while the signs still sing of love, I can’t help but feel my betrayal


It’s the night that gets me high
Throw my heart into your mouth to stop the lies
And all the times we shared so far
But you’re a dream and I am real, so I decline
