Track Name: The Sky and the Sea
remember the days we were miles away

trying our best to get by

you said to me that you were here to stay

you said that the moon made you cry



I’ll count your scars by the setting sun

and hope that the warmth takes away

the marks on your skin that show everyone

you’re just getting by day to day



the sky and the sea, they don’t matter to me when there’s you

the mountains and trees held the birds and the bees and they flew

the sky and the sea, they don’t matter to me when there’s you



let go, relax, cause I’ll hold you up

you thought that the clouds were so high

if it’s all too much and you’ve had enough

remember that there’s you and I



forget all the time that we’ve spent apart

and separate body from mind

I swear by the weight of our beating hearts

that girl you are one of a kind



the sky and the sea, they don’t matter to me when there’s you

the cold winter breeze brought the world to it’s knees and it knew

the mountains and trees held the birds and the bees and they flew

the sky and the sea, they don’t matter to me when there’s you
Track Name: Kick the Can
sailed my ship toward your port

found myself inside your fort

we played catch and kick the can

lately I’ve heard you’re not a fan



cause time moves slowly just slips away when you don’t want it to

time flies fast, yeah it moves so quick - what can you do?

cause time moves slowly just slips away when you don’t want it to

time flies fast, yeah it moves so quick - what can you do?



I am scared of what’s to come

if we forget where we’re from

rest assured, you’ll turn out fine

I just wish you turned out mine



cause time moves slowly just slips away when you don’t want it to

time flies fast, yeah it moves so quick - what can you do?

cause time moves slowly just slips away when you don’t want it to

time flies fast, yeah it moves so quick - what can you do?



I’m gone, you’re better

I fall asleep at night
and I dream of whether
we could have worked out right



cause time moves slowly just slips away when you don’t want it to

time flies fast, yeah it moves so quick - what can you do?

cause time moves slowly just slips away when you don’t want it to

time flies fast, yeah it moves so quick - what can you do?
Track Name: The River
I left home, I took flight

overseas, overnight

a visit like any before

oh, there was something more



I was told it’s but a wedding

a simple joining of two

but by now they were dreading

his nearing time overdue



rest his soul, lay him down by the river
let him go with the stream

burning coals, now his ashes they simmer

may he always live in your dreams
let him always live in your dreams



so it goes, his years were shedding

since the news from months ago

there was so much more to that wedding

damn I wish they’d let me know

but I’m glad it didn’t show



rest his soul, lay him down by the river

let him go with the stream

burning coals, now his ashes they simmer

may he always live in your dreams

let him always live in your dreams



I was told I was found by the river

inching close to the stream

but before my fate was delivered

you came and rescued me

you came and set me free

you came back to me
