Track Name: Safe and Sound
I could lift you up
I could show you what you want to see
and take you where you want to be

You could be my luck
Even if the sky is falling down
I know that we'll be safe and sound

I could fill your cup
You know my river won't evaporate
This world we still appreciate

You could be my luck
Even in a hurricane of frowns
I know that we'll be safe and sound

Safe and sound
Safe and sound
Hold your ground
Safe and sound

I could show you love
In a tidal wave of mystery
You'll still be standing next to me

You could be my luck
Even if we're six feet underground
I know that we'll be safe and sound

Safe and sound
we're safe and sound
Safe and sound
we're safe and sound
Hold your ground
we're safe and sound
Safe and sound
Track Name: Patience Gets Us Nowhere Fast
I want it all and nothing less
I want it all, I want the best for you
I'm telling you the truth

You are the one that makes it real
Even the sunlight doesn't feel this good
Whoever said it could?

Patience
Patience gets us nowhere fast

I want it all and nothing less
I want it all, I want the best for us
I'm telling you to trust

The world you see is on our side
Take a chance and take a ride with me
From sea to shining sea

Patience
Patience gets us nowhere fast

I don't want my patience to last

Follow me, follow me somewhere
Follow me, follow me somewhere
Follow me, follow me somewhere out there

I want it all and nothing less
I want it all, I want the best for you
I'm telling you the truth

You are the kiss I don't expect
Remind me never to forget my youth
I'll leave it up to you
Track Name: I Sold My Bed, But Not My Stereo
Black is my favorite color
Makes me feel like we know each other
Blank tapes and posters on the door

Listen to my Pink Floyd cover
Take a seat like a backbeat lover
Mixed tapes and cushions on the floor

I Sold My Bed, But Not My Stereo
I Sold My Bed, But Not My Stereo

Paper bags and escalators
Pushing up those broken faders
Only way to find out who you are

In a town of ones and zeros
You are one magnetic hero
Little things will always get you far

I Sold My Bed, But Not My Stereo
I Sold My Bed, But Not My Stereo
Track Name: Center Stage
There's a good time to do it on your own
There's a good time, now it's time to go
There's a good time, do it for a change
There's a good time, step out from the cage

Everyday I walk away with the feeling that I'm center stage
There's a good time
There's a good time

On a mission, on a mission
Gonna get it right
Don't think about it
I don't think about it

On a mission, on a mission
Gonna get it right
Don't think about it
Think about, think about it!
Track Name: Love Away
Love, just love away
Just do it everyday
Just do it every way

All my friends, they pretend
The end is just around the bend
But since you came along
I'm not believin' it

Sunshine, destiny
The birds and bees and centipedes
Until you came along
I never needed it

Love, just love away
Just do it everyday
Just do it every way

Money, power, a man of means
Chasing down irrational dreams
But when you came along
I was freed of it

Throw your TV out the door
One, two, three, four, on the floor!
And if you sing a song
You'll believe in it

Love, just love away
Just do it everyday
Just do it every way
