Track Name: Love Like (Knock It Off)
I’m all in my head though
Cuz of all of the times you wouldn’t let me go
And there he was with mind games
Kept spitting love like it was yesterday
It does me in when you say you won’t
It does me in when you say you won’t
It doesn’t matter if you care at all
It doesn’t matter if you care at all

That was our stuff, threw me out to miss me proper
It was too much, don’t fight with rocks
That was our stuff, threw me out to miss me proper
It was too much, don’t fight with rocks

What’s with indecision, you think you can replace me
Then you tell me baby I’m the best there is!
What’s with indecision, you think you can replace me
Then you tell me baby

You better knock it off, uh
You better knock it off, go on
You better knock it off, knock it off
You better knock it off, go on go on
You better knock it off
You better knock it off, go on go on
You better knock it off, knock it off

Go on, baby, go on go on go on go on

I’m all in my head though
Cuz of all of the nights you held me oh so close
Again with all the mind games
You blew a kiss and didn’t aim it straight
It does me in when you say you won’t
It does me in when you say you won’t
It doesn’t matter if you care at all
It doesn’t matter if you care at all

What’s with indecision, you think you can replace me
Then you tell me baby I’m the best there is!
What’s with indecision, you think you can replace me
Then you tell me baby

You better knock it off, go on

Oh the sun is up, roving hot to touch
Oh the sun is up, roving hot to touch

It’s in there have a taste, I got a while to waste
It’s in there have a taste, I got a while to waste

I could get lost with you, I could get lost
I could get lost with you, I could get lost

Knock it off, na na knock it off
Knock it off, na na knock it off
Knock it off, na na knock it off
Knock it off, na na knock it off

Go on go on
Track Name: Only One
She was out for lunch
It was a friday special
Something bout buckets of wings
It’s almost saturday
I hope the weather can stay
Wanna look good for the social

She was truly adamantly checked out locked in
It’s nice to wind down

Not until you walked by and you whisper first
(Have an open mind stop pleading the fifth)
A scenario like if you pull me first
(You could give a little bit coming off too stiff)

You could say there’s only one calling out for me
You would grab my hand for fun
Ask me not to leave under the awning

I get it couldn’t go that way, but could you imagine
Oh I get it couldn’t go that way, but wouldn’t you love it

She was truly adamantly checked out locked in
It’s nice to wind down

Not until you walked by, and you whisper first
(Have an open mind stop pleading the fifth)
A scenario like if you pull me first
(You could give a little bit coming off too stiff)

You could say there’s only one calling out for me
You would grab my hand for fun and ask me not to leave
Only one calling out for me
You could grab my hand for fun
Ask me not to leave under the awning
Track Name: Keep On Dancing
It’s so much better when you look back on it

Remind me of the order
Was I resting on your shoulder
Remind me of the sweetness
Oh on top of my lips

And I, I wanted to get close to you
So I thought of something we could do

Another reason to wait, another reason to wait
We’re gonna keep on dancing, We’re gonna keep on dancing
Another reason to wait, another reason to wait
We’re gonna keep on dancing, We’re gonna keep on dancing

We gotta, we gotta keep dancing

All is ours (keep dancing)
On and off, when we want
Oh, oh (keep dancing)
On and off, when we want

Excuse me for a second
But movement is my blessing
And pardon my directness
But you’re what I’m missing
And I, I wanted to stick next to you
So I thought of something we should do

Another reason to wait, another reason to wait
We’re gonna keep on dancing, we’re gonna keep on dancing
Another reason to wait, another reason to wait
We’re gonna keep on dancing, we’re gonna keep on dancing
Another reason, another reason
We’re gonna keep on - dancing, we’re gonna keep on - dancing

We gotta - keep going
All is ours is ours, when we want
All is ours is ours, when we want
All is ours is ours
All is ours is ours

To dance

It’s so much better when we look back on it
Track Name: Luxury Portfolio
Should be a breeze balancing on a slope
Show me your teeth over piles of lemons
Two bowls of them gleam

I guess so, how’d you manage?
We’re stealthy and very lucky
You ain’t you and I’m famished
Was working ‘til I stopped it

Should be a breeze balancing on a slope
Lift with your knees
Carry boxes of lemons too iffy for me

I guess so
How’d you manage
We’re stealthy and very lucky
You ain’t you and I’m famished
Was working ‘til I stopped it

You ain’t you, you ain’t you, you ain’t you

Should be a breeze - balancing
Track Name: Out In The Open
Vision focused on blurry relation press stop
Missing focused on pressure to breathe in, press stop

It was kind of a toss up cuz I cut my losses
And I was all for it just to feel rigid
Racing for power and towering over
And we were the keepers out in the open

Mission lonely without the patience, it’s up
Blessed calling on every hiccup, slip up


It was kind of a toss up cuz I cut my losses
And I was all for it just to stay rigid
Racing for power and towering over
And we were the keepers
Out in the open
(But you were closest, and we were closer, and I was over)
(Because your behavior cracks the windows, and I was over)

We can work on it
We can work
If you need me I’ll be here soon enough
If you need me I’ll be here soon enough
If you need me I’ll be here soon enough
Did you need me?

It was kind of a toss up cuz I cut my losses
And I was all for it just to stay rigid
Racing for power and towering over
And we were the keepers out in the open

Track Name: 'Til We Lose The Feeling
Given the chance you would love isn’t that how you phrased it?
Risen like dough in the streets didn’t have to be honest
Nothing gets lost it’s for keeps isn’t that how you like it, yeah
Glitter for eyes to disguise what we deal with most days

We won’t get through since we weren’t living
I’m stuck on you ‘til we lose the feeling

We won’t get through since we weren’t living
I’ll wait for you ‘til we lose the feeling

Hey, my timing was all wrong
Hey, my timing was all wrong
Hey, my timing was all wrong
Hey, my timing was all wrong

Waiting for dawn for the glow for some sunlight to bathe in
But we don’t wanna go just yet get set right there
Nothing gets lost it’s for keeps isn’t that how you like it, yeah
Shimmer for lips to dismiss what we go through most days

We won’t get through since we weren’t living
I’m stuck on you ‘til we lose the feeling
We won’t get through since we weren’t living
I’ll wait for you ‘til we lose the feeling

Hey, my timing was all wrong
Hey, my timing was all wrong
Hey, my timing was all wrong
Hey, my timing was all wrong

That feeling!
Track Name: Miss U
I collected greatness when you were not around
I had cushions and clouds, softest I have found
But none of what I’m saying is real
No none of what I’m saying is real

I might miss you, but I won’t show it
Yeah I miss you, but I won’t show it
Not again

So I slept on it. I thought about what it meant for me, how many times I’ve felt swept, how many times I’ve felt left, and it’s not so bad, turns out you’re just really really busy like everyone else living here… where does the time go, right? Right?

I might miss you, but I won’t show it
Yeah I miss you, but I won’t show it
And I, I miss you, I
And I, I miss you, I

It’s so silly in its simplicity
It’s just something that I’m itching to get out
(On the way to certainty or not)
(Awful close to certainty or not)
It’s so silly in its simplicity
It’s just something that I’ve been meaning to get out

But none of what I’m saying is real, no none of what I’m saying is real.
I might miss you but I won’t show it
Yeah I miss you but I won’t show it
Track Name: Love Trade
You stoppin’ through, I might as well face it
Call all your friends, we could get it rollin’

Feelin’ so good when we dance til close
Cuz you so smooth about it
The nights run off around you not sure what I’d do without you
Caught in your arms when the lights turn on
You said my world surrounds you
So baby don’t leave without me, without the thought of me
Oh yeah, the thought of me

Before it gets away
Watching also tracking the center of the heart forgiven
Prizes if you care, fonder of the gesture
The puzzle’s on the box above it

Never one to lose my mind bout you and I
Didn’t mean to cut in line but you trade love for lies
Slithering across the soul many nights
I never meant to give up hope but you trade love for lies
For lies

Vibe with me ‘til the next day on the low on the low
You said I look good no I look great, so incredible
And I hear what they keep saying on the low on the low
But I see what you do for me my heart my soul

Feelin’ so good when we dance ‘til close, cuz you so smooth about it
The nights run off around you, not sure what I’d do without you
Caught in your arms when the lights turn on
You said my world surrounds you
So baby don’t leave without me

Counting everything
Watching also tracking the center of the heart forgiven
Prizes if you care, fonder of the gesture
The puzzle’s on the box above it

Never one to lose my mind bout you and I
Didn’t mean to cut in line but you trade love for lies
Slithering across the soul many nights
Never one to give up hope but you trade love for lies
Track Name: Yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Looking for new flings but it’s more of the same
Oh yeah, yeah yeah
I just can’t see myself ending up with you
Oh yeah, yes yeah yeah yeah
Wanted a fresh start, what is it a lost art?
Oh yeah, yeah yeah
Sorry but this is just not working out
Oh yeah, uh - uh
Track Name: Am I Less
I could let you up
I could let you hold me
Unless I’m washing the dreams and drying ‘em clean
You could try for me
You could tell me stories
Less I’m thinking of ways to tiptoe away
Am I less?
Am I less?

It wasn’t good
It’s understood
Two orders neat
Your eyes on me

What if I’m not yours, I’m not yours ah

I could give you up
Finally close a chapter
Catch you floating away closing up to erase
You would try for me
Only say the right things
While I’m rearranging and backing away
Am I less?

Grip loosens quick
Dead air fresh take
What I perceived
Toying with me

What if I’m not yours, I’m not yours ah
Yours
