Track Name: Always Raining
Its always raining now

Hey there its been awhile
since I have seen you smile
I miss the waves of your ocean
baby I’ve been down
I can’t lie, I miss that look in your eye

I make it by just fine
but I lose track of time
I miss the motion of your body
making fire with mine
I look up to the sky
the clouds hang over I

and
Its always raining now

For you I’m like a child
wandering in the wild
I miss the steady of your everything
I’m ready now
just had to tell you while
my umbrella is open

I make it by just fine
but I lose track of time
I miss the motion of your body
making fire with mine
I look up to the sky
the clouds hang over I

its always raining now
Track Name: Us
We can never get high enough
(They say)
We've been seeing the stars too much
(Maybe)
We forever feel out of touch
(Because)
They don't make em quite like us

Baby, you're a dream
even when I wake, I mean,
something I can't shake from me
you make me believe
Baby, you're a dream

We can never get high enough
We've been seeing the stars too much
We forever feel out of touch
They don't make em quite like us

Your lovin'
is an art
is a dance, is a song
is a shipwreck discovered
at the bottom of your heart
You were deep sea swimming
but we made our way up to the surface
where the world is
girl we can do what we want to
You've had a harder past
and I know that it haunts you
But you got an awesome presence
that makes everybody want you
I gotta lotta gratitude for you by my side
Girl, you got me when you want me, love,
the limit's the sky

We can never get high enough
(They say)
We've been seeing the stars too much
(Maybe)
We forever feel out of touch
(Because)
They don't make em quite like us
Track Name: New Times
new times are here girl

i can hear you wishing on a star
for a different world to appear


other people

unknowingly convince us
what we see is all we receive my dear


but close your eyes and look inside

and see what types of colors emerge in your mind


when the clock strikes one

and your hand is inside of mine,
we’ve only just begun to rise



the sunshine over the horizon

is surprisingly faint

when standing next to your frame

love will never feel the same

when everything seems to change

it’s you calling out my name

you are the blue of the flame

love will never feel the same



new times are here girl

i can hear you wishing on a star
for a different world to appear


new times are here gir
l
i can hear you wishing on a star

for a different mirror
Track Name: Never Leave featuring Veronica Topacio
i’ll never leave you

if you never leave


she captures me like polaroid

from out the void

i just sit silent awhile,
smile and listened to her voice

her words drown out the noise

so i happily avoid 
askin how she fancies other boys

still the stars they give out in the background

when she asks how i been feeling

and i reminisced

i said ‘i’ve been better than this

baby we’ve been better than this

do we forget or forgive

there no synonyms for this
relationship

my sentiment is with

whatever set us adrift

though our tenements shifted

please listen

i’ve been kissing the sky like it was your lips
and
 wishin 
on the last star falling

admitting the sins i’ve committed

askin the universe for your forgiveness

on my knees, begging please

that you would come back to me
it was written in the breeze

believe
so
i did it
no kidding 
and now i’ll never leave





i used to believe

that when two people fall in love

it was destined to be

i fell head over heels

you’ve been a blessing to me

you broke me down in to a thousand pieces

now i feel the peace in
side,
trusted your presence with me

but i guess this how it feels

to let you go and keep it real
without
you here close to me

i know you fear gettin emotionally attached

but if love is an ocean
i want to float in to the net you cast

swim past your border lines, yeah

finish what we started last time around the track

cuz there’s no turning back

life is circle, white to black
and fading back 
turn the page


blank slate can’t wait

stroke of the brush
your touch,
i trust
 the moment makes us

let’s write the next chapter

make it right like we have to

she captures me like polaroid

from out the void

i just sit silent awhile,
smiled and listened to her voice

her words drown out the noise

so i happily avoid 
askin how she fancies other boys

still the stars they give out in the background

when she asks how i been feeling

and i reminisced

i said ‘i’ve been better than this

baby we’ve been better than this

do we forget or forgive

there no synonyms for this
relationship

my sentiment is with

whatever set us adrift

though our tenements shifted

please listen

i’ve been kissing the sky like it was your lips
and
 wishin 
on the last star falling

admitting the sins that i’ve committed

askin the universe for your forgiveness

on my knees, begging please

that you would come back to me
it was written in the breeze

believe

so
i did it 
no kidding 

and now i’ll never leave

Track Name: Smoke & Mirrors featuring Realeyes
will you wake up on the other side of the looking glass?

will you wake up on the other side of the looking glass again? 

when did you fall?
when did it all become so strange?

when did you fall?
when did it all begin to change ? 


Oh we’ve wandered far away from home again

Oh we’ve lost our sense of where we’ve been

Oh what do we really know?

Will you wake up on the other side of the universe?

or turn over your cold pillow
and watch all of your dreams disperse?

you answered my call,
now tell me where to go from here

because 
i just had to know
what else is there beyond my fear
?

smoke and mirrors


Track Name: Kaleidoscope
she was born to a california sun

she will hold you like a gun

she will tell you you’re the one

that she adores


just because you think that you’re someone

don’t mean that she’s in love

she’ll wear you like a glove
and hold your hand

through the storm


you’ll become caught up inside dream

fall apart at the seams

you won’t know what it means 

until she wakes you up


you’ll look out her window to the world

this kaleidoscope eyed girl

her colors they will swirl

across your mind


we both get lost and pretend to be free

how far along the road’s eternity
?
we made a promise i intend to keep

so won’t you keep up with me

?



unicorn, they say we’re going down

but we’ll sail across the clouds

they’ll erase us from their mouths

when they waste their time hatin



apple core, welcome to paradise

was it me who took the bite?

who turned out the light

ah aaahh ahhh


we’ll become someones we know we’re not

we’ll say that we forgot

we are not robots

aaahh aahh ahhhh


you’ll look out her window to the world

this kaleidoscope eyed girl

her colors they will swirl

across your mind


we both get lost and pretend to be free

how far along the road’s eternity
?
we made a promise i intend to keep

so won’t you keep up with me
