Track Name: Hello There
Hello there, I miss you, the way that you smile
So glad you’re getting out there
It’s been such a long while since
I called you
My friend

Hello there, I miss you, but I’m afraid to tell you so
You don’t even know where I’m at

Time will only tell
If you’re good to time
Time will only tell if you want it to

Hey
I’m asking you to return nothing
In return, could I exchange our goodbye? (goodbye, goodbye)
Don’t make me cry from laughing or from crying or for from anything at all
You still affect my heart

Hello there, I miss you
Hello there, I miss you

Time will only tell
If you’re good to time
Time will only tell if you want it to

Hello, there I miss you
I confess, let’s move on it’s been addressed
Unless you happen to want me back (I want you back)

Hello there, I can’t say I need you, ’cause I’m doing fine
But I wouldn’t mind, having you around.
Track Name: Wonder Why
I come across you every day and I wonder why you don’t say anything to me
And when I see you I feel like I can touch the sky, oh darling that’s the power you have on me
Why don’t you sit by me at lunch sometime
Or knock on my front door, oh that I wouldn’t mind
Why don’t things go the way I want to, and how are you so blind? I’m standing right here

I smile at you and your family every once in a while, you seem to see me back, you do
I feel it’s only polite to next say hi, but you never seem to want to
Why don’t you notice what’s in front of you
How can’t you see the way I look at you
Is this something you would ever want, or am I just being a fool, I think I might be

I know what you got on the mile run, aaand I also know that that is creepy
I pay attention to the ones I love, aaand my oh my you sure are speedy
Why don’t you watch me like I watch you
How can’t you notice me, I notice you
Why is it that every time I day dream, it seems way too unreal, is it too good to be true?

I wonder if you’ll ever hear my song, and do that funny dance you always do
If it would take you very long, to realize that I am perfect for you
Why don’t you notice me? I notice you
How can’t you see all that I see in you
You’ll find that there is someone who likes you for all that you are, by the way that would be me

Why don’t you sit by me at lunch sometime
Or knock on my front door, trust me, I wouldn’t mind
Why don’t things go the way I want to, but maybe they will now- I’m standing right here
Track Name: Love’s Sake
For the love of the breeze
We sit
For the love of the trees
We listen
For the love of the discovery
We travel

For the love of our home
We care
For the love of our state
We share its name
For the love of our earth
We try to fix it like we do

For love’s sake love’s sake
I am love sick love sick love sick
And not about you

For the love of music
I share
For the love of guitar
I play it
For the love of singing
I will sing (la da da da da dum)

For the love of books
I’ll steep/reap/ leap
For the love of insanity
I’ll keep
The balance of my mind
lost in-between

But for the love of you
I have no action to take
For you told my heart
It’d be a mistake to let it break
All this love

For love’s sake love’s sake
I am love sick love sick love sick
And not about you
Track Name: Apathy
Apathy
It’s coming for me
Apathy
Soon you’ll see

How have my feelings gone
You hid them well

Once upon a time it wasn’t lasting
Once upon a time it wasn’t ever after
Once upon a time it wasn’t everlasting

Mend my heart
With emotions
Make me start
Crying oceans
Find the spot where my thoughts will show upon my face

Make it stop
I’m too vulnerable
You’re on top
Far too colorful
Find the place where embrace is meaningful to me

Apathy
Let me be
Apathy
Show me free

Where have my feelings gone
Where should they even be

Oh, apathy
You’re a wise guy
Tricking me
Never fly by
Stoned face, stone heart

Just show me where you are
Track Name: Go Ahead
Go ahead and beg me
Go ahead and cry
Go ahead and do the things you do, but just don’t try

Go ahead and whisper
All the things you hate
But doing this, you won’t ever learn to appreciate

The sun that’s out there
The sky that’s blue
And all the other people who would smile at you

Just look out your window
And you will see
There’s more beauty in this world than what you see in me

Go ahead and sleep all day again
Go ahead, ignore the calls from your friends
Go ahead and fold your dirty clothes
Don’t want to bother, I don’t want to impose

But your life is such a precious thing
You’ll see, once you get over this temporary sting
You can rise above it, we all have to
Turns out many more have suffered much worse than you

Could take a lifetime
To open your eyes
And find struggle can actually be a gift in disguise

But go ahead and lie in bed some more
And waste your time when you could be looking for

That girl that’ll love you just like I do
Who knows? She could even be more perfect for you
Just get yourself out there
It’s been long enough
Life is hard, but it doesn’t have to be so tough

I know you don’t think it’ll be okay
But it will
If you could just listen to me today
And sit still
I can share with you
All that I want for you
And you can choose
To listen
Or just stick to the way that
you live right now

But the sun is shining
The sky is blue
And there are many people who would smile at you

Just look out your window
And you will see
There’s more beauty in this world than just the beauty you see in me
