Track Name: Dear
Chorus 1:
Dear, let’s go rolling through the grass
Do something of childish fun
On a lovely morning in the sun
Here, flowing time is going fast
Why not make our time here last?
On this morning in the sun

Verse 1:
Time slips away, you’re by my side
Move to a shady spot near the river
We’re safe for curiosity of each other and ourselves

Chorus 2:
Dear, will we lie in naked fear?
Of lust tearing us apart
When this morning comes to pass
Here, ease the pain your love is near
Shatter walls of two pane glass
So we’re closer as time goes past

Verse 2:
Time slips away, you’re by my side
If society crashed to the ground
We’re safe from harm’s way at our shady spot near the river

Chorus 3:
Dear, as we roll through the grass
Remember when we would bypass
Wars waged in the sun
Here, flowing time is going fast
Why not make our time here last?
On our morning in the sun

Chorus 4:
Dear, will we lie in naked fear?
Of crushing sadness of the rain
When this morning comes to pass
Here, ease the pain your love is near
Shatter walls of two pain glass
So we’re closer as time goes past
Track Name: Please Come Back to Chicago
Verse 1:
We met a few days ago
Under the falling snow
While we were standing in line
Buying tickets to the show

Verse 2:
But you're heading home now
Back East to your friends
I didn't get to know you that much
As our time together ends

Chorus 1:
Please Come Back to Chicago
From your small Eastern town
But tell you what, I'll be around
And you should stay her even though
Soon you'll have to go

Verse 3:
So we sat down for a drink
In a warm fire lit cafe
But then your bus arrived
And I wish I had the nerve to say

Chorus 2:
Please Come Back to Chicago
From your small Eastern town
But tell you what, I'll be around
And you should stay her even though
Soon you'll have to go
Please come back

Bridge:
I've got your name
I've got your number
But it doesn't quite feel the same
When you're 600 miles away

Chorus 3:
Please Come Back to Chicago
From your small Eastern town
But tell you what, I'll be around
And you should stay her even though
Soon you'll have to go
Please come back
You're heading home now
Track Name: Belfast
Verse 1:
My lady left for the North Irish coast
To inspire new dreams, love, and hope
For to see things she’d only seen in books
My lady had to go on her own

Chorus 1:
With quite a distance between us
There’s only so much I can do
I’ll see her off to the North Irish coast
Belfast, my heart’s left for you

Verse 2:
The city’s murals speak a thousand words
But her love for the art speaks passion
Her eyes will light up from the sights she sees
And her heart will crave for more

Chorus 2:
With quite a distance between us
There’s only so much I can do
I’ll see her off to the North Irish coast
Belfast, my heart’s left for you

Bridge:
While I’m still here in the United States
My thoughts have crossed the sea
Norn Iron hold my lady close
Her safety is a priority

Chorus 3:
With quite a distance between us
There’s only so much I can do
I’ll see her off to the North Irish coast
Belfast, my heart’s left for you
Belfast, my heart’s left for you
Track Name: The One I Miss
Verse 1:
Well I've seen some women since the last time we spoke
But it never worked out how I thought it would
After each breakup, you would be on my mind
And I would always go back to those times

Bridge:
Do you remember when we shared those nights?
Remember how everything seemed alright

Verse 2:
I tried to convince myself the longing would go away
Easy to forget if I found love anew
At the end of the day, my head would go back to you
And I'd wished this could be through

Chorus:
I want to go back, to that feeling that bliss
No one else really matters, you're the one I miss
I want to go back, to that feeling that bliss
No one else really matters, you're the one I miss

Verse 3:
Well I've seen some women since the last time we spoke
But it never worked out how I thought it would
After each breakup, you would be on my mind
And I would always go back to those times

Chorus:
I want to go back, to that feeling that bliss
No one else really matters, you're the one I miss
Track Name: Savannah
Verse 1:
You think I'm a big shot
Pretentious pen-in-pocket jerk
Writing songs to win over girls
I know, guilty as charged
Apprehend my melting heart
Falling in love isn't a crime

Chorus:
I've loved these days we spend together
Soon we'll be moving out, away from here
Savannah, will you call me when you get to Houston?
Will you remember who I am if I ever see you again?
I'm afraid this is all it'll be
For you and me, Savannah

Verse 2:
You think I'm a hot shot
Piano man can't hardly read
The notes written on the page
I'm not such a smooth guy
Sandpaper best defines me
I can't say the same about you

Chorus 2:
We don't enjoy the pressures of love
So we can keep things simple I don't want to give you up
Savannah, will you call me when you get to Houston?
Will you remember who I am if I ever see you again?
I'm afraid this is all it'll be
For you and me, Savannah

Bridge:
We both have dreams we wanna chase
Can we still chase each other this far away?
You said if I fail I could be George in a Beatles cover band
But if you fail the dream you'll chase may never be me

Chorus 3:
There won't be any summers in Highland Falls
Savannah, if I want you is it really my call?
Savannah, will you call me when you get to Houston?
Will you remember who I am if I ever see you again?
That's all it'll be
For you and me
Track Name: Alone
Verse 1:
On the list of people you know
Where would I fall?
Of those people you know
I’m not the first you call

Chorus 1:
Know what it’s like to be alone?
Know what it’s like to be alone?

Verse 2:
Not sure how an oriole feels
They migrate alone
Maybe I’m making a big deal
Don’t matter if I’m gone

Chorus 2:
Know what it’s like to be alone?
Know what it’s like to be alone?
Know what it’s like to be alone?
Alone, alone, alone

Bridge:
So called friends leave me behind
So called lovers tend to lie
I’m getting cold and I’m so tired
Nothing seems to reignite the fire

Verse 3:
If I died tonight, would anyone show?
Put flowers on my grave, wear black head to toe?

Chorus 3:
Know what it’s like to be alone?
Know what it’s like to be alone?
Know what it’s like to be alone?
Alone, alone, alone Alone, alone, alone
