Track Name: Naiveté
I might be naive, too soon to make assumptions
But I've seen the significance, I've seen someone of substance
Before uncertainty, before there was any question
I was well overwhelmed and subdued that you'd give me this impression

Why should you listen? Why should you look my way?
What good could I offer to make you stay?
Instead of asking why, I wanna see it through
No more passing by, there's so much I see in you

If I’ve never seen you, if you never heard my words
I’d say I’m still overwhelmed, for what it’s worth
I’m not mistaken, no, I’m not second guessing
That you’re someone significant, from first impression
Track Name: Only You
Times like these I need you around
I find I need to hear the sound
Of your voice and every little thing you say
What's this choice that is keeping you away?

My eyes are shut and I can only see one thing
Your lonely silhouette I've seen in all my dreams
And as they open, I'm hopin' what I see is true
An honest image

Can I say that it was real, yes, this thing between us
Plain as day, just ask anyone who's ever seen us
If you are leavin', what's the reason you've got to go?
What's the meaning? Can you tell me? I want to know
No surprise, once or twice you've crossed my mind
A modest goddess I must say is hard to fund
It'd be nice to see you even in the dark
Close to blindness, but much better than apart

My eyes are shut and I can only see one thing
Your lonely silhouette I've seen in all my dreams
And as they open, I'm hopin' what I see is true
An honest image of only you

Only you
Track Name: Wanted
I’m just tryna clear my mind
Don’t mind at all if it’s dishonest
There’s no need to feel so needed
Who really wants to be wanted?

I listen in to your silence
It says much more than all your words
From what I heard I should try this
But I guess I’ll never learn

I’m just tryna cloud your mind
Don’t mind me, this might be honest
Why the need to feel so needed?
Who really wants to be wanted?
Track Name: Bad Vibrations
I get a bad vibe from any thought that features you
Some kind of ill will is instilled
And I don’t care if you feel it too
Oh, that’s life, “c’est la vie” is all I can say
Oh, bad vibrations, I want them all to go away

Some kind of bad vibe, so I shun words when in full swing
And not to mention your perception
It doesn’t mean a thing
Oh, that’s life, I’ve heard it all before, yeah
Bad vibrations, I don’t want these anymore

Bad vibrations, that’s all you have in store
Bad vibrations, I don’t want these anymore
Bad vibrations, I’ve had ‘em all before
Bad vibrations, I don’t want these anymore
Track Name: Untitled
I wanna leave now, I never wanted to stay
They left me here, things never go my way
I’m only here, ‘cause I’m not as fast as them
They left me here, I’m not as fast as

Don’t say goodbye
Just get me high

Sing to me when I’m already fast asleep
Sing to me when I’m already wide awake
Knock me out with those songs you know so well
I want you here right now, oh, can’t you tell?

Don’t let me drown
Just get me by

I wanna leave now, I never wanted to stay
I never said those words, who woulda said?
I’m only here ‘cause I wanna be with you
I hate it here, what the fuck do I…
Track Name: The Wonderer
An endless question
The answer hides deep inside the other
This misconception
A blurry state of mind leaves one to wonder
So I wonder

What could have been
Some unknown dream come true with one another
Oh, but that was then
And now it seems that one can only wonder
So I wonder

So I wonder
Track Name: Standstill
When the love is on the rocks
Girl, I know you know that we’ve been here before
Oh, we’re at a standstill and still I feel that we
Could have so much more

Well I’ve said this once and I’ve said this twice
That in the night time I might think of you
You could be anywhere
Well there’s no way of knowing where this is going
But I all I know is I wanna see you there

Am I making myself clear? Crystal clear,
Or anywhere near it?
As clear as azure sky in deepest summer
Oh tell me won’t you hear it?

And I’ve said this once and I’ve said this three times
That in the meantime, I still think of you
You could be anywhere
Well there’s no way of knowing, (there’s no way of knowing)
Where this is going, (where this is going)
But all I know is I want you, I want you to see me there
Track Name: Driftance
I’m so late when it’s time to isolate myself away, myself away
It’s all beyond me, how can I face it? I need to leave it, I need displacement
With eyes wide shut, I’ll wander blindly, oblivious, and never minding
If this driftance could only show me something
I won’t be misled if I follow nothing
Track Name: New Year
I, I wanna see a better version
I want to meet a better person in myself
And if it’s right to invite any kind of difference
I’ll let my insight and inference be my help

When disappointment disappears
And dispositions seem sincere
Then I just might be ready for a new year

I’ll stand, I’ll stand corrected
When I least expect it
Upon moments reflected

Promises might be made
As well as mistakes
I’ll do whatever it takes
So that nothing will break
Before it’s too late, before it’s too late

When disappointment disappears
And dispositions seem sincere
Then I just might be ready for a new year

But if this contentment is discontinued
Let any and every sentiment within you
Tell yourself… It’s gonna be a new year
Track Name: Slowdance
I must admit that I’ve been foolish
I know I’m not the only one
Something so different, so new
Once was here and now it’s gone

There’s a particular truth in your eyes
Oh yes, I’ve seen it all along
But that truth is pretty much useless
When you’re convinced it’s nothing but wrong

There was a time of no chance for a slow dance
And memories all the same
Still I would get this idea of romance
All from the way you said my name
And whether we’re together or separate more than ever, just so you know
I’d be yours truly
I’ll give you a second, I’ll give you a moment
To think of the easiest way you can show it, then go ahead
Go on and fool me

Now you’re older and you’re wiser
But every now and then
You’ll surprise me and entice me
Oh, I’ll let my guard down so you
Can fool me again
Track Name: The Fall
I’ve been through it, it was something
Those times before were nothing at all like this
This golden hour, this time I know I’ll miss
Oh, I’ve been through it, I thought I knew it
This fall I felt was not like what it used to be
Thought I knew it all too well, it was all too new to me

For better or for worse I won’t forget it
There’s some meaning after all
Forever on four words I won’t forget it
I wasn’t ready, not ready, not at all
Not ready for the fall

If it happens, don’t question it
You’ll never know why it was meant to be
The best of it might show eventually
And when it happens, take notice
Oh, I know this, this memory will never be subject to change
When inconsistency will see that nothing stays the same

For better or for worse I won’t forget it
There’s always meaning after all
Forever on four words I won’t forget it
I wasn’t ready, not ready, not at all
For better or for worse I won’t forget
Still have this feeling after all
More than ever on these words I won’t forget it
When I wasn’t ready, not ready, not at all
Not ready for the fall
