Track Name: Tell Me Sweetly
If you're gonna tell me that I'm wrong then tell me sweetly
Sitting on the sidelines screaming out your guidelines
Don't tell me that you're done unless you let me down easy
Up against the window screaming what I don't know
What I don't know

Oh boy here we go

If you've got something to say then won't you head to the stage
Sitting pointing rocking criticizing mocking
You want it done your way then by all means baby rage
Wanna be a rockstar then get yourself a guitar

*Chorus*

If you're gonna strike me low just do it sweetly
Won't let me get too high gotta stop to criticize
I got somewhere to go and your words won't keep me grounded baby Sky high swing low
Just kick back and watch me go

Oh boy here we go

Got one foot out the door and another's here on the ground
Lift me up and chew me down spit me up and ring me round
Got one ear to the wall and the other's filled with pretty sounds
Back it up and show me how pour me up another round

*Chorus*

*Bridge*
Track Name: Quarter Afternoon
I cried a river over a carton of spilled milk this morning
Sunny skies in the forecast when at long last you realize
Those skies might keep pouring
Caught myself short of breath by the time it was afternoon
Around a quarter after noon
And I started to guess that the worst would be over soon

Pack up this open road
Close it inside my fist
Drop off this heavy load
Cause life's too short of this
Tie down these big ol' dreams
Anchor them's what I mean
Cause if we're coming clean
The best part is in between

Killed two birds with one stone but I swear it was an accident
Days turn into weeks into years
And it feels too cliche to wonder
Where all that time went
Rode a sliver of hope
Though I seldom discuss
What I found chasing dust
Guess I'm still learning to trust

Pack up this open road
Close it inside my fist
Drop off this heavy load
Cause life's too short of this
Tie down these big ol' dreams
Anchor them's what I mean
Cause if we're coming clean
The best part is in between
Track Name: Being Nowhere
A heartbeat and a bass line
Is what I'm looking for
Gotta secret gotta keep it
Whispers at the door
Ooo

Who's at the door
What you knocking so hard for
What you knocking so hard for
1,2,3,4
Till I knock down this door

Can't rush, cant rush the magic
Gotta let, gotta let it happen
Put one foot in front of the next till you aint got no space left
Ooo
Dead ends, get you to go to where
You aint been after you've been nowhere
Stare down your demons and unlock the door
Bad dreams don't live in these woods no more

In this forest full of trees

Take a seat at the finish line
The day before the race
Contradictions superstitions
Shoved up in your face
Ooo

Can I get some room?
Didn't you say you were leaving soon
1, 2, 3 leaving soon
3, 6am noon
Till I walk out this room

Can't rush, cant rush the magic
Gotta let, gotta let it happen
Put one foot in front of the next till you ain't got no space left
Ooo
Dead ends, get you to go to where
You ain't been after you've been nowhere
Stare down your demons and unlock the door
Bad dreams don't live in these woods no more

In this forest full of trees

There's no place like nowhere
It's a good place to be
Sometimes being nowhere
Is exactly what you need

Can't rush, cant rush the magic
Gotta let, gotta let it happen
Put one foot in front of the next till you ain't got no space left
Ooo
Dead ends, get you to go to where
You ain't been after you've been nowhere
Stare down your demons and unlock the door
Bad dreams don't live in these woods no more

In this forest full of trees
Forest full of trees.
Track Name: Just Love
I love you with my whole heart even the broken pieces
Thought I lost it giving it away turns out it's finders keepers

And I just want to love you
Baby and I'm just thinking of you

I love having all of you tangled up with all of me in the morning
In the morning
And baby turbulence is nothing but a breeze when I'm with you
You taught me how to love
Just, just, just love
You taught me how to love and now I just love loving
You

I love you with my whole heart even the darkest corners
You chipped away the concrete with every passing morning

And I just want to love you
Baby and I'm just thinking of you

I love having all of you tangled up with all of me in the morning
In the morning
And baby turbulence is nothing but a breeze when I'm with you
You taught me how to love
Just, just, just love
You taught me how to love and now I just love loving
You

I trust you with my whole heart even when I feel uncertain
Baby I'm immature and insecure and terrified of hurting

That's why I'm just going to love you
And baby I'm just thinking of you

From the bottom of my whole heart
I've got nothing but love
Baby you can have my whole heart
For you it's just, just, love

I love having all of you tangled up with all of me in the morning
In the morning
And baby turbulence is nothing but a breeze when I'm with you
You taught me how to love
Just, just, just love
You taught me how to love and now I just love loving
You

You taught me how to love
And now I just love loving you
Just, just loving you

From the bottom of my whole heart
