about

In 2017 I set out to send one song per week to my email subscribers. New songs, new versions of old songs, covers, studio versions, live versions.

This album is the complete collection of those songs, minus a few which are already released on other labels. A 44 track journal of One Song Per Week, every week for 2017.

Track Name: Lost At Sea
Turn the other way look around
Something big’s about to happen
I swear to God that I’ve been here before
And you were here I guess it’s nothing

Lost at sea
Guess I do know the truth afterall

Stay the current course
No matter what don’t change for anyone
Say you’ll save a corner of your mind
Cause I think about you all the time

Lost at sea
Guess I do know the truth afterall

And nothing you can do to turn it back around
Is gonna make a difference it’s done it’s happened now
So take me where you go
Watercolour eyes
And we can start again
You'll never know if you never try
Track Name: Silence (Live)
Heard you in the distance
A storm on the scope
Almighty thunder
Coming for me I hoped
Rolled over the horizon
Swept up it all
Batten the hatches
And teardrops and branches

But I hear the silence now
Right to my core
I never heard silence
Like this before
But I hear the silence now
From wall to wall
I never heard silence
Like this before

Very tall buildings
Lights at high speed
Trails on the taxis
Heading all around me
Up on the rooftop
Wasteland of a view
The pierce of the sirens
Can you hear them too?

Or is it just silence now
Cause I tell you what
It feels like this silence
Is all that I’ve got
Yeah I won the battle
But I lost the war
I never heard silence
Like this before

The plane flies so high
Can't be seen or heard
Looking down on the hills
Looking down on all the birds

But I hear the silence now
Right in my core
I never heard silence
Like this before
Yeah I hear the silence now
From wall to wall
I never heard silence
Like this before

Track Name: We Belong Together (Live)
So tell me the reason that
We found ourselves in this hopeless place together
And tell me the reason that
The sun and moon are the same size in the sky

Fade in the morning shade from the sun
Maybe one day yeah I’m holding on

Can you feel it, can you feel it
Can you see that
We belong together, we belong together
Know you feel it ,know you feel it
Can you see that
We belong together, we belong together

And right when I realised
That maybe I’ve been thinking bout forever
I saw something in your eyes
Reflecting back off of a speed limit sign

Fade in the morning shade from the sun
Maybe one day yeah I’m holding on

Can you feel it, can you feel it
Can you see that
We belong together, we belong together
Know you feel it ,know you feel it
Can you see that
We belong together, we belong together

I can see it very clear sometimes
But it’s gone in the blink of an eye
And half awake I can hallucinate it right
But it’s all white noise in the low light

Can you feel it, can you feel it
Can you see that
We belong together, we belong together
Know you feel it ,know you feel it
Can you see that
We belong together, we belong together

Track Name: I Can't Make You Love Me
Turn down the lights, turn down the bed
Turn down these voices inside my head
Lay down with me, tell me no lies
Just hold me close, don't patronize
Don't patronize me

Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something it won't
Here in the dark, in these final hours
I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power
But you won't, no you won't
Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't


I'll close my eyes, then I won't see
The love you don't feel when you're holding me
Morning will come and I'll do what's right
Just give me till then to give up this fight
And I will give up this fight

Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something it won't
Here in the dark, in these final hours
I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power
But you won't, no you won't
Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't
Track Name: Can't You Tell (Live)
I keep a light in the window
Making sure that it’s on
So you know that I’m still here
So you know

You only did what had to
I don’t blame you for nothin
I still feel like shit without you
So you know

You’re tellin me that you met somebody
Say it’s easier than it’s ever been
I’m telling you I’m happy youre happy
Cant you tell that I don’t mean it
Cause it’s hard to hear that you found somebody
When i’ve holding on to get you back again
I’m telling you I’m happy you’re happy
Can’t you tell that I don’t mean it

Now I sleep in the day cause
At night it don’t seem to come
And time it dont seem to matter
Anymore

I chase the worst of the memories
Trying to piece it together
Till I just I can’t take it
Anymore

You’re tellin me that you met somebody
You say it’s easier than it’s ever been
I’m telling you I’m happy you’re happy
Can’t you tell that I don’t mean it
Cause it’s hard to hear that you found somebody
When i’ve holding on to get you back again
I’m telling you I’m happy you’re happy
Can’t you tell that I don’t mean it

Happy you’re happy...

You’re tellin me that you met somebody
You say it’s easier than it’s ever been
I’m telling you I’m happy you’re happy
Can’t you tell that I don’t mean it
Cause it’s hard to hear that you found somebody
When i’ve holding on to get you back again
I’m telling you I’m happy you’re happy
Can’t you tell that I don’t mean it
Track Name: Thinkin Bout You (Live)
A tornado flew around my room before you came
Excuse the mess it made, it usually doesn't rain in
Southern California, much like Arizona
My eyes don't shed tears, but, boy, they bawl
When I'm thinkin' 'bout you (Ooh, no, no, no)
I've been thinkin' 'bout you (You know, know, know)
I've been thinkin' 'bout you
Do you think about me still? Do ya, do ya?
Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (Ooh, ooh)
Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (ooh, ooh)
No, I don't like you, I just thought you were cool enough to kick it
Got a beach house I could sell you in Idaho
Since you think I don't love you, I just thought you were cute
That's why I kiss you
Got a fighter jet, I don't get fly it, though
I'm lyin' down thinkin' 'bout you (Ooh, no, no, no)
I've been thinkin' 'bout you (You know, know, know)
I've been thinkin' 'bout you
Do you think about me still?
Do ya, do ya?
Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (Ooh, ooh)
Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (Ooh, ooh)
Yes, of course
I remember, how could I forget?
How you feel?
And though you were my first time
A new feel
It won't ever get old, not in my soul
Not in my spirit, keep it alive
We'll go down this road
'Til it turns from color to black and white
Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (ooh, ooh)
Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (ooh, ooh)
Track Name: Love You More (Live)
And I love you and you’ve gotta take the blame
And I love it when you call my name
Love the things that you don’t like about yourself
Cause if they weren’t true then you’d be someone else

And I love travelling with you by my side
Or doing nothing staying home on Friday nights
And I love the way you never suffer fools
Even sometimes when I am one of them to

On a scale of one to ten love
1s I don’t know and 10‘s sosure
If you said that you loved me a million
Then I’d still love you more

I love the way you get me everytime
I love it when you put your hand in mine
I even love the way my words just disappear
When they are not the ones you want to hear

On a scale of one to ten love
1s I don’t know and 10 is sure
If you said that you loved me a million
Then I’d still love you more
Yeah you know I’d love you more

And I loved you for a while yeah I rehearsed
But I love that I still said it first
And I love the way you said it back
Don’t wanna think about how you could’ve not done that

On a scale of one to ten love
1s I don’t know and 10 is sure
If you said that you loved me a million
Then I’d still love you more
Yeah you know I’d love you more
Yeah I’m bit and there’s no cure
Track Name: Worse (Live)
And I tried everyday to be the best I can
Until the day you came along
And then I spent some time worrying who I am
And if I could be good enough

You left you said it’s no ones fault
That I am just too good for you

So now I’m trying to get worse
I’m just trying to get worse

I know that what you said don’t make no sense at all
I Think I said it once myself before
But somehow I can’t stop I wanna spiral
Until we’re on the same level

You left you said it’s no ones fault
That I am just too good for you

So now I’m trying to get worse
I’m just trying to get worse

And I can’t help but daydream turning you away
When you really need me
But I know that all the good hearted part of me
Would say please stay

So I’m trying to get worse
I’m trying to get worse
I’m trying to get worse
I’m just trying to get worse
Track Name: If Things Had Gone Our Way
Come around you said I’ll be waiting there
Saw the moon rise right as the last train left
Left the lights on stones thrown at window panes

And you said my name

And I knew that I’d find you at the shore
But the tide don’t care what you’re waiting for
As my signal fire drowned beneath the waves

Did I hear you say
My name

I guess I knew it from the start
A one way broken heart
But who’s to say
If things had gone our way

Come along you don’t need to be alone
Call me when you can so I know you’re home
Tell me all I learned and I’ll try to forget

And just say just say
My name

Somethings are unavoidable
And the rest, I don’t know
But who’s to say
If things had gone our way
Track Name: Late Night Whiskey Heartbreak Song (Live)
Long ago I knew a boy
Who’s heart was on his sleeve
He trusted almost anyone
And loved so fearlessly

But he knows better than that now
He locked his heart away
With all the other foolish things
And there it’s gonna stay

Cause I don’t need anyone
And I don’t need nothing
Cause I’ve learned that every love
Is a ticket to lose
And I owe it all to you

Nothing ventured nothing gained
I’ll take that one as verse
Better loved and lost they said
But it’s definitely worse

So I don’t need anyone
And I don’t need nothing
Cause I’ve learned that every love
Is a ticket to lose
And I owe it all to you
Track Name: Lost At Sea (Live)
Turn the other way look around
Something big’s about to happen
I swear to God that I’ve been here before
And you were here I guess it’s nothing

Lost at sea
Guess I do know the truth afterall

Stay the current course
No matter what don’t change for anyone
Say you’ll save a corner of your mind
Cause I think about you all the time

Lost at sea
Guess I do know the truth afterall

And nothing you can do to turn it back around
Is gonna make a difference it’s done it’s happened now
So take me where you go
Watercolour eyes
And we can start again
You'll never know if you never try
Track Name: If Things Had Gone Our Way (Live)
Come around you said I’ll be waiting there
Saw the moon rise right as the last train left
Left the lights on stones thrown at window panes

And you said my name

And I knew that I’d find you at the shore
But the tide don’t care what you’re waiting for
As my signal fire drowned beneath the waves

Did I hear you say
My name

I guess I knew it from the start
A one way broken heart
But who’s to say
If things had gone our way

Come along you don’t need to be alone
Call me when you can so I know you’re home
Tell me all I learned and I’ll try to forget

And just say just say
My name

Somethings are unavoidable
And the rest, I don’t know
But who’s to say
If things had gone our way
Track Name: Tin Man (Live)
Hey there Mr. Tin Man
You don't know how lucky you are
You shouldn't spend your whole life wishin'
For something bound to fall apart
Every time you're feeling empty
Better thank your lucky stars
If you ever felt one breaking
You'd never want a heart

Hey there Mr. Tin Man
You don't know how lucky you are
I've been on the road that you're on
It didn't get me very far
You ain't missing nothing
'Cause love is so damn hard
Take it from me brother
You don't want a heart

Hey there Mr. Tin Man
I'm glad we talked this out
You can take mine if you want it
It's in pieces now
By the way there Mr. Tin Man
If you don't mind the scars
You give me your armor
And you can have my heart
Track Name: Meet You There
In the lowlights in the clouds
The desert as the sun goes down
In the secrets never said and the
Ripples on the water’s edge
I’ll meet you there

In the ones that I told you before
And clean slates that I never saw
The paths so obvious to take
And the ones that just call for blind faith
I’ll meet you there

Encores and curtain calls
And nothing at all
Yeah through it all

In ordinary nothing thoughts
Second moments long forgot
In the nights we didn’t want to end,
Turn down time you said
I’ll meet you there
Track Name: Hymn For The Departed
Take a bow
You were amazing
I wish that you could hear me now
I hope to God
I’ll see you someday
But I will say goodbye for now

And I don’t know if
I can believe it
That there’s a place where we start anew
But if when I go
There’s a place to find you
Then that’s the first thing I’m gonna do

Take a bow
You were amazing
I hope you’re up there looking down
I hope to God
I’ll see you someday
But I will say goodbye for now

I hope that you knew
How much I loved you
Cause it’s so much more than words can say
And if when I go
Heaven is real
I know you'll be there waiting at the gate

Take a bow
You were amazing
I hope that I am wrong somehow
Yeah I pray to God
I’ll see you someday
But I will say goodbye for now
credits
Track Name: Rise & Shine
Rise and shine
There so much to see
Places to go
And people to meet

Rise and shine
They’re waiting for you
Don’t wanna be late
Whatever you do

Rise and shine

Rise and shine
Bounce outta bed
Into the day
And outta your head

Rise and shine
Today is your day
Nothing is gonna
Get in your way

Rise and shine
Track Name: Making Mistakes & Wasting Time
Seeing rivers flowing seeing sunrise
Colours shifting at the speed of light
I can see you through it all

And even though this isn’t all that there is
I got you and all of our beginnings
And right there my fear is upped and gone

I said that we’re forever
Forever’s what I mean
Cause there ain’t nowhere else that I’d rather be
As long as we keep making mistakes and wasting time

I think you might be my crystal ball cause
Whenever you’re around I can see it all
Laying out there clear as day

And when the summer's over
You know where I will be
Cause no matter where I go my heart is here
Just tell me we’ll keep making mistakes and wasting time

And I hope
Hope we don’t ever learn
And I hope
We’ll go where the wind blows

I said that we’re forever
Forever’s what I mean
Cause there ain’t nowhere else that rather be
As long as we keep making mistakes and wasting time
As long as we keep making mistakes and wasting time
Track Name: So Easy To Love You (Live)
Looking out over the river
In grainy black and white
It looks the same every second
It’s different all the time

I don't hear a word you're saying
But I know what you mean
Secrets for safekeeping always
Washing out to see

Everything
Is so hard faught
I can’t believe this thing I got

It's so damn easy to love you
It's just so easy to do
Not sure I could stop now
If I wanted to
It's so damn easy to love you
It's just so easy to do
Not sure I could stop now
If I wanted If I wanted
If I needed to

All the flashes on the water
Never twice the same
Tell me do you have an answer
Or at least someone to blame

When everything
Is run aground
I can’t believe this thing I found

It's so damn easy to love you
It's just so easy to do
Not sure I could stop now
If I wanted to
It's so damn easy to love you
It's just so easy to do
Not sure I could stop now
If I wanted If I wanted
If I needed to

Sinking like a stone
To the bottom of
I don't even know
I don't even know
I don't even know

It's so damn easy to love you
It's just so easy to do
Not sure I could stop now
If I wanted If I wanted
If I needed to
Track Name: By The Light Of The Stars We Are On Our Way Home
And I guess we all need someone to love
And I guess we all need help sometimes
And I’ve tried and I’ve tried but I just seem to go around forever
Never the wiser

No matter how tired you get something I want you to know
Yeah whatever happens there’s always a place we can go

Oh we’re on our way home
On our way home

And I never mean to let you down
No I would never hurt you
And I tried and I tried but I just seem to go around forever
Never in control

No matter how dazed we get something I want you to know
Whatever happens there’s always a place we can go

Oh we’re on our way home
On our way home

Let down
Left out
Just overcome by it all

But no matter
How dark the night gets
I want you to know

We’re on our way home
Track Name: Ordinary Splendour
Please repeat it one more time
I don’t get it again
I was there riding the wave
I could see itp
 
Ordinary splendour
Ordinary splendour
 
It is
 
If I could hold it in my hand
Would I understand
Sun or shade I wouldn’t care
Just to be there
 
Ordinary splendour
Ordinary splendour
 
It’s perfect
Forever
It’s perfect
Forever
 
Ordinary splendour
Ordinary splendour
 
It is
 
Just when I get it right
I hear you saying I’m out of my mind
 
Ordinary splendour
Ordinary splendour
Track Name: Fall In
We could try to dim the colour
We could try to stop the world
We could try to make our hearts say
Nothing, not a single word

We could try to work it all out
Charts and graphs and 1 to 10
Or we could send it to the ether
Nothing

Or maybe we should

Fall in
Caution to the wind
Fall in
Caution to the wind and
Fall in
Fall in


You and me we are the same though
You know we both been hurt before
But the more I try to hold on to
Something the more I’m letting go

Thinking thoughts just for the sake of
But they all come back to you
And I can’t tell if I’m missing
Something

Or if I should just

Fall in
Caution to the wind
Fall in
Caution to the wind and
Fall in
Fall in

Spent so many lonely nights
Learning how to hold on tight
Didn’t think I’d ever let go
And what you don’t know never hurts
But when you’re around I learn
Didn’t think I’d ever let go

And just
Fall in
Caution to the wind and
Fall in
Caution to the wind

Track Name: The Time I've Wasted (Live)
I could have walked around the world a couple times
I could have swam across the ocean and back again
Made a wish on every star that Galileo drew
For all the time I've wasted on you

I could have downed a million beers in Mexico
Counted every piece of gravel on a long country road
Sailed that slow boat to China right up to the moon
For all the time I've wasted on you

Time goes by and when it's gone it's gone and you realize
Time just lies and you did not move on
No, you just cried you just cried
I could have filled the Mississippi river with my tears
No telling what I could have done with all these years
I could have dug out the Grand Canyon with a spoon
For all the time I've wasted on you

Time goes by and when it's gone it's gone and you realize
Time just lies and you did not move on
No, you just cried you just cried
For everything I've lost I'm not mad at love
I'd even give it one more day if I thought it would be enough
I could have served five life sentences for a crime I didn't do
For all the time I've wasted on you
Track Name: You Are In My Head (Live)
The attitudes of strangers
The secrets of my friends
The old familiar feeling
The world is gonna end
The girl who broke my heart up
And every word she said
Don’t matter to me right now
Cause you are in my head

The where the hell I’m going
The what I’ve never done
The infinite unknowing
Of what we’ll all become
The cracks upon the pavement
On which I never tread
That doesn’t bother me somehow
Cause you are in my head

The sky’s falling in
Time’s running out
And where to begin
Is always in doubt
And life isn’t fair
That much is true
But I just don’t care when I’m thinking of you
Thinking of you

All the tea in China
The wonders of the world
The hearts that beat inside us
The diamonds and the pearls
And all the earthly treasures
I haven’t got to yet
I ain’t got time for that right now
Cause you are in my head
I ain’t got time for that right now
Cause you are in my head
Track Name: I Wanna Be Adored
I don't have to sell my soul
He's already in me
I don't need to sell my soul
He's already in me

I want to be adored
I want to be adored

I don't have to sell my soul
He's already in me
I don't need to sell my soul
He's already in me

I want to be adored
I want to be adored

Adored

I want to be adored
You adore me
You adore me
You adore me
I want to
I want to
I want to be adored
I want to
I want to
I want to be adored
I want to
I want to
I want to be adored
I want to
I want to
I gotta be adored

I want to be adored
Track Name: Can't Help Falling In Love
Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can't help falling in love with you

Shall I stay?
Would it be a sin
If I can't help falling in love with you?

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you
For I can't help falling in love with you
Track Name: Now What
Gotta keep that fire burning night and day
Tell me how else will we ever get rescued?

And the fire’s gonna burn out someday
Better sit down honey have you heard the news?

We’re circling
An average star
Out on the edge
Of nowhere special

So now what?

We don’t have to make it mean anything
We can do whatever makes us feel alright

And it’s really low probability
But the consequence is definitely high
But would it hurt us even a little less
If we ever manage to work out why?

We’re floating round
In the deep feeze
Out on a limb
Of one of a hundred billion galaxies

We’re circling
An average star
Out on the edge
Of nowhere special

So now what?
Track Name: The Hardest Part (Stripped)
Well you said that I was always in your heart
But in truth soon as it started there I was
Trying to figure out the place the sky would fall
And I wonder if it matters now at all

Call the future by another name
Could there ever be another way
Whatever happened to the feeling I could even stop the world
Well here we are
Here we are

And you told me everything that goes around
Is gonna find a way to come and bring you down
And we wanted to believe that we were wrong
But I guess we found out that sometimes forever isn’t very long

Call the future what you never did
What happened to the revolution kids
When it was over did they all forget
That nothing’s ever really over so no matter what just tell me

If you hear my voice cut through the noise
You gotta not come running
And if we live forever and ever, promise no matter what
You won’t come running

Cause I need this
To be the hardest part

So if I’m lost and I call your name, just turn around and walk away
Just don’t come running
And if we live forever and ever, promise no matter what
You won’t come running

Cause I can make it
And heal this heart
But I need this
To be the hardest part
Track Name: Double Down
I said I would quit while I’m a whisper ahead
But all of a sudden I’m a gambling man

Sometimes it’s like it’s all against us
This world is a rigged lottery
But you know I can’t help but double down on you and me

Now reason and making sense so meaningless
I’m looking for reasons to be careless

And I can’t say that you didn’t warn me
But somehow that don’t mean a thing
You know I can’t help but double down on you and me

How can I say heaven help me
It’s not something that I believe
But you know I can’t help but double down on you and me

All we lost
Stacking up
But I’m not giving up on us
Losing track
Of the cost
But I’m not giving up on us
All we had
All we lost
But I’m not giving up on us
All we had
All we lost
But I’m not giving up on us
Track Name: For You
Great escape
A bullet I dodged
All those things
I’d have given up
Even so
I’m doing it all
For you

Living now
The futures a dream
And yesterday
Don’t mean anything
But scratch the surface
And all of my time
Is for you

And no matter where I run
Forget what I believe
There’s only room for one truth
It’s all that I can carry
And I can tell myself
But I won’t ever hear it
Cause I’m only listening
For you

All those words
Creating a world
Of safe and sound
Of moving on
But the silence
In every pause
Is for you

And no matter where I run
Forget what I believe
There’s only room for one truth
It’s all that I can carry
And I can tell myself
But I won’t ever hear it
Cause I’m only listening
For you

It’s all for you
Track Name: Echo
Did you ever know
Cause I’ve never known
Something so ill fated

And if there’s anything
That could make me believe
It’s our love desecrated

After the curtain
Falls
And the stars go
Cold
And the moon drifts away
When there’s nothing left
The mistakes and regrets
My love for you
We’ll remain
Cause this echo won’t ever fade

Can you hear me you now
Through the noise somehow
Face to face one last time

Under neon lights
Realer than real life
Searching for a sign
Give me a sign

After the curtain
Falls
And the stars go
Cold
And the moon drifts away
When there’s nothing left
But mistakes and regrets
My love for you
We’ll remain
Cause this echo won’t ever fade

No matter how dark it gets
No matter cold
We’ll echo


After it’s said and
done
And this hope is
Gone
And the moon drifts away
When there’s nothing left
The mistakes and regrets
The me and the you
We’ll remain
Cause this echo won’t ever fade

Love me true
All my dreams fulfilled
For my darling I love you
And I always will
Track Name: When Does It Get Easier
If time is such a perfect healer
If what don't kill you makes you strong
And if tomorrow is a new day
Then when’s tomorrow gonna come?

When does it get easier?
When does it get easier?

If practice really makes perfection
If everybody gets their turn
If every heartache is a lesson
Then when will I ever learn

When does it get easier?
When does it get easier?

If sunshine always follows rain
And good things come to those who wait
How long have I got to wait?

I'm not trying to be impatient
But I feel like I've done my part
I know it comes when you stop trying
But I keep tying so damn hard

When does it get easier?
When does it get easier?
Track Name: We Did.
True love speaks between the lines
Don't need words at all
Keep them all inside of you

True love can't be anchored to
The ground beneath her feet
There’s nothing on Earth you can do

You can’t ever prove what you can prove
Nobody can really have the truth
But if anybody ever did
We did.

Looking back I always knew
It would come to this
Nothing stops the world from turning

You can’t ever prove what you can prove
Nobody can really have the truth
But if anybody ever did
We did.

You can’t ever prove what you can prove
Nobody can really have the truth
But if anybody ever did
We did.

If anybody had true love true love
If anybody had true love true love
We did.
Track Name: Friends (Live)
I was wonderin' 'bout your mama
Did she get that job she wanted?
Sell that car that gave her problems?
I'm just curious 'bout her, honest (ooh-ooh)


Know you're wonderin' why I been callin'
Like I got ulterior motives
Know we didn't end this so good
But you know we had something so good

So I'm wonderin'
Can we still be friends? (ah-ah)
Can we still be friends? (ah-ah)
Doesn't have to end (ah-ah)
And if it ends, can we be friends?
Can we be friends?
Can we be friends?

Wonderin' if you got a body
To hold you tighter since I left (since I left)
Wonderin' if you think about me (uh-huh)
Actually, don't answer that (uh-huh)

Know you're wonderin' why I been callin'
Like I got ulterior motives
Know we didn't end this so good
But you know we had something so good

So I'm wonderin'
Can we still be friends? (ah-ah)
Can we still be friends? (ah-ah)
Doesn't have to end (ah-ah)
And if it ends, can we be friends?
Can we be friends?
Can we be friends?
And if it ends, can we be friends?

Know you're wonderin' why I been callin'
Like I got ulterior motives
Know we didn't end this so good
But you know we had something so good

I'm wonderin'
Can we still be friends? (ah-ah)
Can we still be friends? (ah-ah)
Doesn't have to end (ah-ah)
And if it ends, can we be friends?
Track Name: 20/20 (Live)
All of the reasons I didn’t wanna see
Like a range mountains how did they hide from me
What is it they say?
The forest for the trees
Well now they’re 20/20

All of the fault lines, the ground beneath her feet
All of the lost time, the sun dives in the sea
all the warning signs I couldn’t bring myself to read
It’s all 20/20


Every raindrop threatening to fall
So many rainclouds obscuring the sun
Somewhere in my heart did I always know, did I always know

All of the last times I didn’t quite believe
Was I out of my mind or walking in my sleep
Hidden in plain sight but now it’s out of reach
It’s all 20/20
Track Name: 5000 Miles (Live)
Visions of nothing and thoughts I’ve forgotten
And everything is five thousand miles now
Five thousand miles now
Five thousand miles

And all I can promise is all that I’ve got is a moment
And that’s just five thousand miles now
Five thousand miles now
Five thousand miles

And it’s hard to explain but you know that
If I could only see your hands
I know that in a split second you’d understand

The stars and the gutter and one or the other
And everything is five thousand miles now
Five thousand miles now
Five thousand miles

You get what you’re given if I’m not mistaken
I think all I’m thinking is five thousand miles now
Five thousand miles now
Five thousand miles
Track Name: Pieces
And in the hazy dancing city lights
I found a tiny little piece of mind
I put it somewhere that it would be safe
Somewhere it could never slip away

And long ago I blanked on where it was
I know it’s out there somewhere I forgot
The wind is howling it’s a hurricane
So what was it that I was gonna say

Here in the morning the sun is rising
Here in the morning it whips and wanes
And in the morning I find the pieces
It’s like the the storm ain’t coming back again

And nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
Could stop me coming back around
To what I feel for you

Nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
Could stop me coming back around
To what I feel for you
What I feel for you
Track Name: All Good
I thought that I had it in my head
The words if I ever saw you again
I’d tell you everything I never did
But is it easier said than done?

In spite of all of the times that I
Have played this moment through in my mind
Now you’re here and all I can do is try
To catch you up on the basic stuff

I drink a little more than I used to
I care a little less than I did
I sleep a little worse now without you
I get a little tired of eveything
I get a little lost thinking bout you
I get a little pain in my chest
I get a little scared that this will never end
But other than that
It’s all good

I thought that I had it memorized
I wrote and rewrote them a thousand times
But you’re here and it’s all I can do to try
Small talk and the basic stuff

I drink a little more than I used to
I care a little less than I did
I sleep a little worse now without you
I get a little tired of eveything
I get a little lost thinking bout you
I get a little pain in my chest
I get a little scared that this will never end
But other than that
It’s all good
Track Name: When Does It Get Easier (Live)
If time is such a perfect healer
If what don't kill you makes you strong
And if tomorrow is a new day
Then when’s tomorrow gonna come?

When does it get easier?
When does it get easier?

If practice really makes perfection
If everybody gets their turn
If every heartache is a lesson
Then when will I ever learn

When does it get easier?
When does it get easier?

If sunshine always follows rain
And good things come to those who wait
How long have I got to wait?

I'm not trying to be impatient
But I feel like I've done my part
I know it comes when you stop trying
But I keep tying so damn hard

When does it get easier?
When does it get easier?
Track Name: This Heart Beats Only For You
And you said don’t you think it’s a bore
That nobody gets lost anymore

But if I join the dots together
Would I believe the map I made at all
And yeah I know you’re out there somewhere
Oooh

So I will my feet off the ground ground ground
Throw myself into the sound sound sound sound
But somewhere not so deep down down down
It’s the truth
This heart beats only for you

And the seasons are starting to stack up
Cause you’ve taken the weather with you
I surrender I’m holding my hands up
Nothing I can do

So I will my feet up off the ground
And I throw myself into the sound
But somewhere not so deep down I know it’s the truth
Whatever I do

So I will my feet off the ground ground ground
Throw myself into the sound sound sound sound
But somewhere not so deep down down down
It’s the truth
This heart beats only for you
Track Name: Sometimes
Tell me the one about how we can do anything
Just say it aloud for now I’m-not asking you to believe it

Are you lost are you hurting, lonely just like everyone
Are you thinking of ways to just turn down how human you are

Well
Sometimes just holding on is enough

Tell me the one how you don’t wanna lose anymore
And I promise I’ll listen and try not to sound the alarm

Looking back it’s like we saw it coming, did nothing at all
Yeah the sky is the limit when you start to count all the things gone wrong

But
Sometimes just holding on is enough

Sometimes we can move mountains
Make sense of it all
Sometimes it’s beyond you to finish a thought
Sometimes it feels like we couldn’t possibly lose
And sometimes it’s all you can do, to hold on, hold on

Yeah
Sometimes just holding on is enough
Track Name: Last Christmas
Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance
But you still catch my eye
Tell me, baby
Do you recognize me?
Well, it's been a year
It doesn't surprise me

(Merry Christmas!) I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying, "I love you, " I meant it
Now, I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now
I know you'd fool me again

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

A crowded room, friends with tired eyes
I'm hiding from you, and your soul of ice
My god, I thought you were someone to rely on
Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man under cover but you tore me apart
Now, I've found a real love you'll never fool me again

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man under cover but you tore him apart
Maybe next year I'll give it to someone
I'll give it to someone special
Track Name: I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)
The clock strikes upon the hour
And the sun begins to fade
There's still enough time to figure out
How to chase my blues away
I've done alright up to now
It's the light of day that shows me how
And when the night falls, my loneliness calls

Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me

I've been in love and lost my senses
Spinning through the town
Sooner or later, the fever ends
And I wind up feeling down
I need someone who'll take a chance
On a love that burns hot enough to last
So when the night falls
My lonely heart calls

Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me
Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me

Somebody who loves me
To hold me in their arms

I need someone who'll take a chance
On a love that burns hot enough to last
So when the night falls
My lonely heart calls

Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me
Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me
