Track Name: Teenage Years
Teenage Years
This morning, and every morning
I wake unprepared.
(I’m unprepared)
Silence is the first thing I remember

But then I am out here
Out in my childhood and my teenage years
Trees out here know me better than myself
The wind is high and the day is open

Then I am out here
In my childhood and my teenage years
Trees out here know me better than myself
The wind is high and the day is open

Today, and everyday
I walk the house alone
Forever alone
(Forever)
In waking and sleeping
I am a creature without a tangible home

Then I am out here
In my childhood and my teenage years
Trees out here know me better than myself
The wind is high and the day is open
Track Name: Hangin' On
Hangin’ On
I thought that I’d be leaving here tonight
But I don’t know what was said and I don’t know what is right
But if I stay here baby I don’t know if I can hang on
And if you stay here baby maybe I am hangin’ on

Hangin’ on for you
Hangin’ on is all I can do
Hangin’ on for you
Hangin’ on is all I can do
Hangin’ on for you
Hangin’ on is all I can do and I don’t know if I’m quite ready for that…

Baby I’ve been hangin’ on
Baby I’ve been hangin’ on
Baby I’ve been hangin’ on
And I don’t know if I’m quite ready for that…

Well Friday night it comes around at last, we said we’d do something
No-one’s making the first move
But when I see you baby you are acting nonchalant
So when I see you baby I am acting nonchalant

Nonchalant for you
Nonchalant is all I can do
Nonchalant for you
Nonchalant is all I can do
Hangin’ on for you
Hangin’ on is all I can do and I don’t know if I’m quite ready for that…

Baby I’ve been hangin’ on
Baby I’ve been hangin’ on
Baby I’ve been hangin’ on
and I don’t know if I’m quite ready for that…

If you need to take time away
Take the time, to look at me and say
I’m gonna move on either way
I’m gonna move on either way

Baby I’ve been hangin’ on
Baby I’ve been hangin’ on
Baby I’ve been hangin’ on
and I don’t know if I’m quite ready for that…

We can make it everyday
Maybe not all the time
I guess we’ll wait and see
What’cha doing later won’t you come hang with me?
Said I could be your sugar pop
You could be my coconut rough
Do you have time for that?
Gimme a call, hit me back

Baby I’ve been hangin’ on
Baby I’ve been hangin’ on
Baby I’ve been hangin’ on
and I don’t know if I’m quite ready for that…

If you need to take time away
Take the time to look at me and say
If you need to take time away
Take the time to look at me and say

It won’t be easy but then what is
When you got me hanging on like this
I’m gonna move on either way
I’m gonna move on either way
Track Name: Take It All Back
Take It All Back
All this time
I should have been nice to you
All this time
I should have been nice to you

How can I expect you to change?
You don’t owe me
You don’t owe me anything
How can I expect this to change
I want to make it right I want to start again

Hold on

All this time
I should have been nice for us
I could’ve cleaned up the house for us
I should’ve made us food that night
I want to take it all back
I want to take it all back
I want to take it all back

Shoulda known better
What can I do for you?
I want to make it better
Want to make it up to you
I shoulda known better what can I do for you?
I wanna make it better wanna make it up to you

Hold on

All this time, I shoulda been nice to you
But I was such a jerk to you
I want to take it all back
I want to take it all back

How can I expect this to change?
You don’t owe me
You don’t owe me anything
How can I expect this to change?
When I gave you so much pain

I shoulda known better
What can I do for you
I wanna make it better
Wanna make it up to you
I shoulda known better
What can I do for you
I want to make it better
Make it right and take it all back
Make it right and take it all back
Make it right and take it all back
Track Name: Dear Teri
Dear Teri,
I don't think you know
Just what I'm thinking of
Yeah just what I'm thinking of
It's funny that it has been so long
Though we carry on, just where we left off

You think it didn't mean that much
It's all that I think about
You think it didn't mean that much
It's all that you think about
It’s not too late to change your path
To follow something you dream about
There's nothing like a change of heart
To follow something you feel

I remember your yesterday
Just like it was my own
Was it my own?
I recall all the words you say
Recounting my story
And how it touched me so
You think it didn't mean that much
It’s all that I think about
You think it didn't mean that much
It's all that you think about
It’s not too late to change your path
And follow something you dream about
There's nothing like a change of heart
To follow something you feel

I dreamt that I was leaving when I woke up really missed you
Baby I was sleeping when you woke up I was dreaming
And I thought that I was leaving when I woke up really missed you
Baby I was sleeping when I woke up you were dreaming
Thought that I was leaving when I woke up really missed you
Baby I was sleeping when you woke up I was dreaming
I thought, you were leaving me behind, ooh

Dear Teri, I don't think you know
Just what I'm thinking of, just what I'm thinking of
Just what I'm thinking of
Just what I'm thinking of
Just what I'm thinking of
Just what I'm thinking of
Ooh Ooh Ooh Oooh
Track Name: Going Away
Going Away
You're going away
And there were some things I wanted to say
But I didn't catch you in time
I didn't catch you in time

Baby what about dessert we had last night
Did you like it?
Baby what about that girl who liked our song at the bar
She looked pretty cool
What about that thing you said I finally got it
You're pretty funny sometimes baby
I'm so glad I met you, in time (baby)

I'm glad I met you, I wanted to say
Though we broke some hearts didn't we baby
We broke some hearts, didn't we baby
We broke some hearts, didn’t we baby
We broke our hearts, didn’t we


Baby what about that time we caught a plane
Together at last
Baby what about that time we slept through four hour daylight
We'd be lucky to
What about that time you said, we would be open
It didn't last long baby
I'm so glad I met you, in time baby
Track Name: Walk Without Me
Walk Without Me
Take my hand,
Cos I've got something to tell you
No you won't get upset
And please don't say you already know

‘Cos feelings change,
I feel so many with every day
So when I feel it fresh,
Well I think it's best to tell you

Are you there are you there?
just look at us
are you there are you there

are you there are you there
just look at us
Are you there are you there

Oh it happened again,
No I didn't forget I just clumsy,
Clumsy with my legs,
And clumsy with my words, then things go weird,
but it's no-ones fault / that's when you should
but it's no-ones fault / that's when you should
but it's no-ones fault / that's when you should

Just take a walk without me
Just take a walk without me
Just take a walk without me
Just take a walk

So I’ll do my things
And then I don’t have to worry
Just take a walk
Just take a walk without me

Are you there are you there?
Just look at us
Are you there are you there

Are you there are you there
Just look at us
Are you there are you there

Just take a walk without me.
Track Name: Infinity Street
Infinity Street
I can see to infinity

Set out on the road just like any other day
Filled my fuel and I'm going away
Driving down the sun is high
Are you coming for a ride?

Down on infinity street
Although, it's killing me

Was it two days or three days more
And are we getting any closer to the end of the road
Can still these sun is shining over me
Never quite setting till infinity

We're going on infinity street
(We go to see the sun that's setting
That's not the sun setting over me)
Although - it's killing me
(We go to see the sun that's setting
That's not the sun setting over me)

It seems we're making some progress
Are we making any progress yet?
There's nobody coming our way for days
No-body's coming our way for days
(We came to see the sun that's set)
Don't forget to keep
(We came to see the sun that's set)
When you're down on it

On infinity street
We came the sun that's setting that's not the sun setting over me
Going on, it's killing me
We came the sun that's setting that's not the sun setting over me
We're going on, infinity street
We came the sun that's setting that's not the sun setting over me
It's like a long long, every-body's watching me, (it's killing me)
There are people who do this out there (it's killing me)
Like it's a new form of video game (it's killing me)
I am not one of them, no I don't know (it's killing me)
How do they keep on driving don't they losing their souls
I'm going all of the way, I’m going all of the way
And I won't see the sun quite set, no I still can't see the sun
quite set
I'm going all of the way, I’m going all of the way
And I still can’t see the sun set, No I won't see the sun quite set,
On - infinity street (we go to see the sun…)
We going on- it's killing me (we go to see the sun…)
It’s killing me
Track Name: Safari
Safari
We would go there
Surfing freely flowing
We would go there
Surfing away

Safari can't find the internet
Safari can't find the internet
Safari can't find the internet
Safari can’t find, can’t find, can’t find, can’t find

We would go there
Freely flowing, go there
Go there,
We would go there
Freely flowing away

Safari can't find the internet
Safari can't find the internet
Safari can't find the internet
Safari can’t find, can’t find, can’t find, can’t find
