Track Name: Hey You
HEY YOU

Sun rose and set three times before I'd even realized I'd hit the road
And then our journey took a turn foretold
The passing power lines grew sloppy
On the road again
Because of you

I packed up
Boxes
And boxes
And boxes
And stored them away
And when I write home
I'll write home
Far from home again
I got away

Hey you
Funny to see you on the road again
Hey you
Why are the streets sometimes your only friend

The smell of sulfur from the factories
Bittersweet whiff of the ol' sperm trees
I catch a drift and think of u when on the highway
Hard to name all of the states
I’ve been thru
Because of you

Hey you
Time to get out on the road again
Hey you
Why is the road sometimes your only friend

Why are the streets your only friend x 3

We've been searching
For the mad ones
The mad ones
The mad ones
And we'll find them
In ourselves, honey
Catch my reflection, unexpected
In the rear-view
In the mirror
And I see
I've got the right of way
There's no way
Couldn't stay
Thankfully

Time to get out on the road again
Hey you
Sometimes the road can be your only friend

Why are the streets your only friend x 4

Track Name: Déjà Vu
DÉJÀ VU

O-oh
re
wind
in

something
I thought i knew
was it, is this
deja vu
there was this
you were there
it was
just like this
just like this

badapa x4

re
wind
in
time

mirror
images
in
my mind

re
wind
in
time
oooh-h

you remind me of my family
and how we used to fight
back when our ears were blinded
now we don't go through that door
anymore

something
I thought i knew
was it, is this
deja vu
there was this
you were there
it was
just like this
just like this
there is no other but here
Track Name: Next Day Blur
NEXT DAY BLUR

You made it hard for me
To remember what heartbreak felt like
You made it hard for me
To leave the party last night

And now that it is the next day
Do you remember me?
I’m the blurry smile

Are you great
Is my memory safe or a lie
Are you great
Is my memory safe or a lie

Drink makes it hard for me
To remember what you looked like
Blur blur blur blur
Check my phone but your numbers not there
And I hope you call
Feel myself start to fall
In love with the guy with the stars in his eyes
Who said he’d like to see me sometime after tonight

You said that after the next day
You would remember me as the blurry smile

Are you great
Is my memory safe or a lie x 3

When you come to the next day
Do you remember me?
I’m the blurry smile
Blur blur blur blur
Track Name: Settle
SETTLE

Daddy always said
Be wary where you rest your head
I’ve been a boy
I’ve seen what some boys do

I’ve looked and found its true
I’ve seen what dumb boys do but
I would settle for you

I wanna be broke and not even care
That’s easier with someone there
So I will settle for you

I’ve accepted
Just accept it
I would settle for you

I’m so tired
Free loving for hire
It’s not the smartest
Bu that’s what some girls do

I don’t love you but I’ll play pretend
Grow old together til the very end
Because I settled for you

I’ve accepted
Just accept it
I would settle for you
Track Name: A Fire
A FIRE

We hit the ground running
Precocious little birds
Wide world is out there
Or so we have heard
Fly through the meadow
Fingers brushing on the grain
After this summer
We will never be the same

The path through the woods was the only road that I ever knew
I only went down there when I was alone with you
I don’t regret it
But I don’t know, I don’t

There was a fire
Smoke filled up the air
We left the place burning
And no one even cared

Between the spark and fireflies it was the summer of our lives
No one said a word

Silent stalk back home
No one will ever know
Sunset shares our secret
We are caught in the undertow
We got away with it
Cuz we are children in this world
That was the last time with you my summertime friend
Track Name: Houdini
HOUDINI

time i devised a new escape
in handcuffs i never could embrace
my atonement time is thru
I hope I don’t have to fail this time with you

what started as magic was a farce
with him i was always in the dark
dropped the facade and we were thru
i know, i
don't want to do that shit with you

time for my last act
master of deception

nothing on earth can hold Houdini a prisoner
so why do I let the past hold me
been so blindsided
come out from hiding
put my name on the bill!
i am planning my very last escape

picked off my shackles, found my voice
wanna succumb to something nice
almost a year now, its been thru
I know i
Can’t make that mistake again with you

i've been a showman for too long
been disappointed by this town
don't have the stomach for it, true
i hope i
don't have to fail again with you

time for my last act
master of deception

nothing on earth can hold Houdini a prisoner
so why do I let the past hold me
been so blindsided
come out from hiding
put my name on the bill!
i am planning my very last escape

yes I hope this is my very last escape
I hope this is my very last escape
yes I hope this is my very last escape
