Track Name: loveless summer (july '11)
sunburned by a loveless summer
distant eyes, sippin' southern comfort
you can touch and you can kiss
but you've got no one to mean it with

quick questions and fast met answers
you're my favorite bedroom dancer
your silhouette spinning fast, lamp half lit
pirouette and fall back on the mattress

i don't know where to find you now
the storm took your beachfront house
headlights cuttin' through the fog
on back roads where we got so lost.
Track Name: misplace my holidays (dec '10)
i took all the pills
that you left by my bed
wrote many tired words
then couldn't decipher what they said
what they meant

i'll misplace my holidays
i'll lose all my sleep
and i won't let myself get caught
in what we are or we are not
it's always been worth it to me

so i laid back down and i thought of all the things i miss
like the light of your face when you see those christmas gifts
i'll buy you any present girl i don't really care of the cost
i just don't want to add your name to the list of things that i've lost

cause i'll misplace my holidays
i'll lose all my sleep
and i won't let myself get caught
in what we are or we are not
it's always been worth it to me

winter is cold but it's your favorite time of year
all bundled up you're looking cuter than a baby reindeer
i race you home and we snuggle under all those sheets
i kiss your face, kiss your hair, kiss your lips,
kiss your cold cold cheeks
then i go back on the road

and we misplace our holidays
we lose all our sleep
and we don't let ourselves get caught
in what we are or we are not
it's always been worth it to me

i think you're perfect to me
Track Name: self-preservation (sept '10)
well i'm restless trying to make the best of this
fiddling with the shards that fell
from when i carved your name
i wanna get near it
i love your independent spirit
85, desert sky, ghost on the highway lane

but you go
i probably should've known

self-preservation, up on a shelf so high
put your heart in a jar
pour yourself a glass of wine
i'm just here to pass the time

i think i could exist in the heat of the moment
beads of sweat necklace, i'm kissing your collarbone
but you're south now, down near the border
and my instincts got me inching northern

i thought it would've worked out
but now all i've got is this doubt

self-preservation, up on a shelf so high
put your heart in a jar
pour yourself a glass of wine
i'm just here to pass the time
Track Name: Race to the Shadows (dec '09)
as the afternoon got tired, the sun collapsed
i watched its body break across your windshield glass
it made me miss the night and everything she told me
and back when the full moon didn't look so lonely

and we'd race to the shadows of this small town
in a basement, a backseat, we can't be found
we'd cover the tracks left on the ground
so they won't find us

when we'd race to the shadows of this small town
we'd speak in tongues without a sound
we'd cover the tracks left on the ground
so they won't find us out

echoes of youth still linger on every block
our laughter still resounding in empty parking lots
and i swear these streets hum
with an urgency that's all their own
and they leave me wanting that feeling
that i used to know

when we'd race to the shadows of this small town
in a basement, a backseat, we can't be found
we'd cover the tracks left on the ground
so they won't find us

when we'd race to the shadows of this small town
we'd speak in tongues without a sound
we'd cover the tracks left on the ground
so they won't find us
so they can't find us
so they won't find us out
Track Name: Slow Down (june '09)
i like this chase you got me on
and how i can't read your mind in a heartbeat
you're different yet so the same

and when we talk
all these thoughts start to circle my head
we're laying on a square mattress
and i'm kissing your forehead

yeah when i get these feelings
i don't know if it's my mind or my heart that's racing
and i'm not sure which one to tell to slow down

yeah when i get these feelings
i don't know, but i'm hoping, i'm wishing, i'm praying
that you might just want to stick around

i surrendered my heart once before
and i ended up captured
i was a real sad actor
so far from what i was after

but a friend they told me
"when you find someone that's just right,
they should just fit into your life"
and i haven't thought of a single thing else
since i left you that night

cause when i get these feelings
i don't know if it's my mind or my heart that's racing
and i'm not sure which one to tell to slow down

yeah when i get these feelings
i don't know, but i'm hoping, i'm wishing, i'm praying
that you might just want to stick around
