Track Name: springtime/lovesick
she looks good and she knows it
lovesick boys try not to stare
as she comes passing

perfect skin
the spring wind blows her hair
across her sun glasses

oh love at a glance
do i ever really have a chance

cause this feels like a fight
i'm a light weight
and we're heavy drinking

is this right tonight?
i don't have the slightest feeling

come on just make a move kid
don't choke on your words
what's the worst that could happen?

how many times up and down
you gonna check her out?
it's the seventh round
and your head is spinning
she's a knockout

and this feels like a fight
i'm a light weight
and we're heavy drinking

is this right tonight?
i don't have the slightest feeling

i'm numbing the summer
is there a kiss coming from her?
i ask in the bathroom mirror
i just wanna lay near her
i just wanna stay with her
i'd just love to be with her
i would love

cause this feels like a fight
i'm a light weight
and we're heavy drinking

is this right tonight?
i don't have the slightest feeling
Track Name: Plane Ride
we dreamt with the loveliest foresight
letting our hearts speak out loud
but we don't know how the future may lie
even in the honesty of now

but every sleepy heart is always half awake
and i've seen so many faces
yeah it may take a lifetime to wait
to find someone who's gonna love you through the changes

i'll catch a plane ride
spend that money i don't have
but it feels right
when i want you this bad

i'll catch a plane ride
spend that money i don't have
yeah it feels right
cause i want you this bad

i fell into the sweetest euphoria
humid air, 2am, and your voice
the realest touch of what i've wanted most
oh i am the luckiest boy

we watch love falling down, hurting all around us
friends crying on our shoulders, oh we catch the tears
i always knew you were something different to me
i wanna find out just what you're doing here

i'll catch a plane ride
spend that money i don't have
but it feels right
when i want you this bad

i'll catch a plane ride
spend that money i don't have
yeah it feels right
cause i want you this bad

this ain't just a rush of emotion
this ain't some starry eyed prose
this is commitment this is confidence
stronger than i've ever known

i'll catch a plane ride
spend that money i don't have
but it feels right
when i want you this bad

i'll catch a plane ride
spend that money i don't have
yeah it feels right
cause i want you this bad
Track Name: Gentle
it feels like a sickness all the time
oh it's awful being so thoughtful
cursed with a considerate mind

and i wonder now what triggered
this little lifelong luck
where i trust so quick
and i care too much

it makes me feel weak
it makes me feel weird
when i realize that hurting other people
is my greatest fear

how did i get so fucking gentle?
how did it come to this?
i can't deal with how those other boys treat you
when i can't even fake a kiss

oh here's my deal
i want to keep it real
so lets have a heart to heart
and let it all spill out

oh i'm a good guy oh don't be fooled
honesty brands my hands with a golden rule
and i'm here to calm any of your doubts

but i've got no strong right cross
ain't got no home run swing
just my open heart
and these words i sing

how did i get so fucking gentle?
how did it come to this?
which moves did i make, oh what mistakes
made me so sensitive?

i will love you hard
with my soft-spoken charm
but i don't gotta hear that i'm the best
yeah i'm not in this for the conquest

but how did i get so fucking gentle?
how did it end up like this?
i can't deal with how those other boys treat you
when i can't even fake a kiss on your lips
Track Name: The Distance Makes Us Real
i know you got a little secret in your mouth
spit it out i'm listening harder than i ever have before

i know you got a little secret in your heart
spit it out i'm listening harder than i ever have before

cause you're my weakness
oh i will run so fast to your feet
yeah all your sweetness
so bright in your smile
shining out through your teeth

and i drift along these streets
with my palms raised out from my hips
waiting on a song to grace the soft talk of my lips
they always bear your name so elegant and true
another story that begs the question of what we'll tumble into

oh we can build this on independence
like 4th of july
let your fears fade away
like smoke in the sky

oh you don't have to worry
i think the distance makes us real
this space is not a barricade
it just leaves more room left to feel

on my back in your bedroom
i remember trembling in bliss
i felt something then
oh i know that it exists

so let me pull you closer now
there don't have to any rules
i like taking this slower
i'm tired of rushing like a fool

what i'd do to just lay with you
climb that ladder to your loft
i'll always buy the ticket
i don't care of the cost
cause you can't place a price on what i believe
so let me take your hand and place it on my heartbeat
Track Name: Run Back
you won't find her in the photos from the weekend
yeah she's always ducking the lens
but you'll remember the times she caught your eye
you can't get those images out of your head

but now i'm so far, remembering all our moments like i could save this
stop the car, my racing heart, my feet 'gainst the pavement
things are different now yet i can't choke down how i want to react
we're over, we're done, but you make me want to run back

doing laundry from weeks before
washing the same clothes i picked up off your floor
when i leave so early like i do
now all the memories coming flooding back, oh fuck it, i miss you

but now i'm so far and remembering all our moments like i could save this
stop the car, my speeding heart, my feet 'gainst the pavement
things are different now yet i can't choke down how i want to react
i know i can walk this off, but you make me want to run back
Track Name: Antenna Lights
now i know that i cannot sleep
next to a heart that doesn't dream
i wake in the morning with this pain in my throat
all these words still sharp with hope

what am i waiting for
with this back and forth?
can i let it all go tonight?

antenna lights
blinking off and on
out your big open window
i watch them all night long

antenna lights
top buildings so tall
while your sleeping
i watch them all night long

i never held expectations
signals dropped, lost in translation
i always knew we were different
but i cared just the same
you taught me about leaving
but i hoped you would stay

is it worth this hurt?
all the back and forth?
off and on you and i like

antenna lights
blinking off and on
out your big open window
i watch them all night long

antenna lights
top buildings so tall
while your sleeping
i watch them all night long

so close the curtains that we bought
and i'll put my feelings away
cause nothing's changed in the light of day

antenna lights
blinking off and on
out your big open window
i watch them all night long

antenna lights
where did we go wrong?
while your sleeping
i watch them all night long
blinking off and on
