Track Name: Lean On Me
We started something,
we never -------------
We dropped the anker and let the others drift away
Now picture on the wall might be all the I have left
From Summer nights and fire lights
The things my mind collects

No, we never could have known
All the ways that we would go
You gave me something that I couldn't happen my own

And if that varying morning sky
Turns into storm on our horizons
Then I'll put my faith in hurricanes and heavy rains tonight

And If you want you can lean on me
I'll push you right back with everything we believed
and everything changes then changes again
This should be saild until we'll back here, my friends

Tonight, with brilliants in our eyes
We're looking at the moon thinking the distant ain't that wide
And if I could you know why I put you up among the stars
So the panting on the season I know exactly where you are

No, we never could have known
All the ways that we would go
You gave me something that I couldn't happen my own

And if that varying morning sky

Turns into storm on our horizons
Then I'll put my faith in hurricanes and heavy rains tonight

And If you want you can lean on me
I'll push you right back with everything we believed
And everything changes then changes again
This should be saild until we'll back here, my friends

My friends, we're starting a band
No, we're not breaking
No, no no see, this ain't the end
My friends, no, this ain't the end
No, this ain't the end

The hardest part of chasing dreams
Is that you always have to live
11 years of astray
Or at least it's how it seems

But if this ocean gets too rough
The lighthouse will got us
We're going home

And If you want you can lean on me
I'll push you right back with everything we believed
It's all changing
This should be sailed until we'll back here, my friends
Track Name: Lanterns
She likes Bob Seger and lightning at night, yeah she’s got some problems but hell, so do I. I could see from California those big hazel eyes that got harder to forget every time that I tried. And you know, from three thousand miles away she could never understand what I’m trying to say, that tomorrow’s much too late, but if you ask there’s still a place for you back home. I’ve spent too many years getting boxed in the ears but that porchlight still burns on, and after all those winter nights I tried to stay out of sight, that porchlight still burns on. And like my grandfathers first, I am a travelling man, so I packed up my things, shook my old man’s hand. I may have been scared, I may not have had a plan, I may have given up but I never ever ran. Well I’ve learned to let go, to not hold on so tight. To step back from the fireflies and just enjoy the light. Sometimes the jar gets cloudy, the glass tarnished with spite. Enjoy the lanterns in our lives, our future’s far too bright to let them die. The young man living with regrets in his head becomes the old man who was never able to move ahead. The young man living with regrets in his head becomes the old man forgotten and alone when he’s dead
Track Name: Now Or Never
It's always raining in this town
The kids they never notice
But I think they start to doubt
Seems like everybody's born here with a one way ticket out
All the hearts they set afire are all dying to be put out

And sometimes I think that I feel the same
But any other house we'd still put to flame

So I'm waiting whoa (I'm waiting whoa)
And I'm waiting whoa (And I'm waiting whoa)
When these nights start getting cold she'd say
One thing I'll never know is how
I'll be alone

For years we were the town elite
The kings the queens of the backstreets
Told been here forever
We tattooed now or never on our arms
And in the dark we made our vows
Closed our curtains and took our bows
Knowing if we could we would
Find a way out

And sometimes I think that I feel the same

But any other house we'd still put to flame

So I'm waiting whoa (I'm waiting whoa)
And I'm waiting whoa (And I'm waiting whoa)
When these nights start getting cold she'd say
One thing I'll never know is how
I'll be alone

And sometimes I think we all feel the same
But any other house we'd still put to flame

And I said hey na na na na
Hey that's something
Hey na na na na yeah better than nothing
Hey na na na na hey that's something eh

So I'm waiting whoa (I'm waiting whoa)
And I'm waiting whoa (And I'm waiting whoa)
When these nights start getting cold she'd say
One thing I'll never know is how
I'll be alone
Track Name: The Way Up North
The northbound trains and the foreign cars, the nights spent out back counting stars dodging trains and blowing in the wind. You said you weren’t afraid to die and without words I asked you “why?”. You said “I could go to hell and wouldn’t care If I’m with you I’ll go anywhere”, but those days are gone, I’ve packed my bags and I’m moving on. Some day love is gonna find me, it might not be today, but some day this love is gonna make its way to me. New England falls can change so fast, the green to red, the trees contrast and summer air gets swept up in the cold north wind. My last days are spent on the beach. I watch the waves roll and retreat and write down the words to get them off my chest. Stuff it in a bottle - hope for the best. I cast it to the sea. “I’m sorry I let silence get the best of me”
Track Name: City Lights
Well I’ve got hopes, but that’s all I’ve got and I’m starting to believe that that ain’t worth a lot. Every lesson’s been telling me the same; it’s a hard luck life, jumping puddles in the rain. But I’ve got six strings that will keep me sane and one day, girl you’re gonna know my name. I feel alive tonight, think I might take you for a ride. We’ll glow in the city lights and forget all the troubles in our lives. I’m tired of feeling so stuck at the bottom, my heart’s racing like I’m climbing up a mountainside. I’m trying to get a little something for me, because I can’t do this old routine. Times are hard for dreamers struggling to get a shot, and lately my luck isn’t running too deep but I’ll give it what I’ve got. Lately I’ve been running a little low on sleep, but I promised one day we would run away to the places we dreamed when we were young and had something no one could take away.
