Track Name: Here To There
got a new hair, got a new face
i’ll be going away again
to get lost in the great north
where i don’t need to know anyone

i won’t have to smile
or pretend to smile
or pretend that i’m listening
i can sit still, with the setting sun
forget about existence

some say its just energy
that moves between you and me
nothing dies, except jesus christ
and he’ll come back eventually

to hang on my mantlepiece
to give me hope and hold my keys
you know don’t really believe in god
but i can see why he’s a needed

but no lines are straight into the abyss
and i’ve wandered backwards and forward in my loneliness
cause i am lost
and i am scared
i was born and unprepared
to get me from here to there

but i’ll know that i’ll make it
i know that it’ll all be just fine
it really isn’t that hard you know
at worst i’ll simply die

i want to rest with you
upon the shores
bring this animal to life
i want to sleep with you
behind closed doors
and wake up alive

no dogs are lost when they don’t come home
sometimes its just easier to go on alone
i am lost and i am scared
i was born unprepared
to get me from here to there

if its time, i have time
i have time to spend with you
watching you eat with your hazel eyes
we've got nothing else to do

i want to rest with you
upon the shores
bring this animal to life
i want to sleep with you
behind closed doors
and wake up alive
Track Name: Animal In Me
i wanna be all the places you’ve been
tailing gating Safeway in somewhere in concord
in the tropical forest or virgin waterfalls
maybe easter island or even st. pauls

I want to see the things that you’ve seen
behind those eyes, it makes me believe
that i can be better, there’s hope to be better
that i’m not the only one, i will be better

surely something is changing
slowly its all rearranging
like the molecules in my veins
or the neurons in my brain
the animal in me knows what it wants

but like all things present, i take them for granted
when my mind slips out of the moment
thinking about Europe, origin of syrup
how i like the way you look without make up

all the dreams you hold in the palm of your hand
and as you spin my globe, to see where it lands
and when i showed you out, and i closed the door
i knew that i wanted more,

and i was in trouble,smitten,
for the first time in a long long time

surely something is changing
slowly its all rearranging
like the molecules in my veins
or the neurons in my brain
the animal in me knows what it wants
Track Name: Everyone Should Ride Bikes
i want to live without thinking of living
i want to eat when i’m hungry
and sleep when i’m weary
speak simply and clearly

when i stop moving around
wherever i build my house
i’ll build it with trust
love that won’t rust
and hands that you’ve touched

we will sit upon a lake
that is perfectly still
not a ripple or a mistake
it just reflects the hill

Everyone should ride bikes instead
we’ll be in better shape, we’ll live a better pace
no more congested freeways

and I will finally slow down
I’ll find love when I’m ready
it will flow through the levy
and it’ll be sturdy and steady

we will sit upon a lake
that is perfectly still
time isn’t with us today
so we do what we will

Nobody falls in love
You climb it day by day
And it all finds it way

yeah i’ll find love when i’m ready
it’ll be somewhere down the stream
where the water runs a plenty
Track Name: Back To The Water
i met her in the afternoon,
in my backyard, she wore maroon
my neighbor played the minor blues
she was stunning in a dress
she was stunning without a dress
she was stunning that day that i left
You can't catch everyone who falls

It's like watching a TV show
Falling asleep as the credit rolls
A brief after image glow
It's like working a daily job
Holding on to what is lost
But it was never there from the start
I can't catch every tear that falls

but you can go back to the water
back to where it started
go back to where you thought you would go
you can go back to the handshakes
go back to where our back aches
nothing is really set in stone

i met her in the canyons,
red rock and standing
she played drums, with hair in her armpits
you don’t see that much in vegas
you don’t see that much is los angeles
you see that sometimes in san francisco
you can’t shave every hair that grows

but i knew that i was wrong
when i let her in my arms
i knew that i was wrong again
cause i know that expectations
are always whats unsaid
and i’ve learned to field that silence
take nothing at face value
msrp is always over priced
Track Name: The Burrito Song
it was over burritos somewhere downtown
where he asked me where i came from
and what does that say about a man
his manners and habits regionally planned

you see in this city
everyone’s from every where
from a texas coastline
to shores of japan

i fell in love with a girl
from Oklahoma i just didn’t know it then
it was over burritos somewhere downtown
i said i’m just like you man i’m from a small town
where the people seem happy
and lovers stay lovers
for a lot longer
cause there are no others

and there’s a walmart, and there’s a macy’s
and if you’re lucky, you’ll have a baby
yeah if you’re lucky, it’ll be all you need

but as for me i got itchy feet
left my girl left my family
for some strange dream i only had occasionally
for a feeling for the horizon

it took me leaving to see whats missing
the people i love here the people i love there
in that moment upon reflection
i’m no longer feel like a stranger

but no matter where i go
least now i can say i have a home
yeah i am lucky, I’m lucky i know

so i’m writing you this letter
while i’m feeling sentimental
you know those evenings after drinking
and you start missing all your friends

and its not anything too particular
but if i go, i do worry
that they won’t know, they just won’t know
how much i love them, in my silence

but no matter where i go
i will always have a home
i’m lucky, very lucky i know
