Slow 03:21
Can I tell you ‘bout my love? Kinda thing that you’re dreaming of Just a simple type of recipe Stir it up just for her and me Oh… do you wanna know? Slow.. but that’s how it goes Keep your eyes right in front of you Don’t criticize other points of view Everyone looking for a star Little hands in a cookie jar Separate from a fantasy See the beauty, reality ‘Cause I know all you know is wrong Another night sing a simple song Oh… do you wanna know? Slow... but that’s how it goes Eh e yea e yea eh! Oh… do you wanna know? Slow... but that’s how it goes

Song of Love 02:43
Everybody here wants to ask you to dance How could I be the one in this circumstance? All the boys line up just to say 'What's Up?' to you And I'm the shy one who Does the only thing I can do Just write this song of love And take you far away The things that people say Don't matter anyway
3.
1000s of pennies falling all around us 1000s of pennies maybe take some home 1000s of people screaming that they're righteous 1000s of reasons people got it wrong Cold gifts are better than no gifts at all Gold lifts a feather as things start to fall Go grab a sweater don't forget the weather Maybe we can't fight it off maybe we can stall I won't say I'm sorry Nothing to say I'm sorry about I won't say I'm sorry Nothing to say It's not the hardest word if you never have to say it

Simplified 02:39
In a race to complicate The situation's just a duplicate Of other times, past, present, future All entwined So if we stop to understand The reason why we're dealt a losing hand There's an ace hidden up inside the sleeve of Everyone. Everyone? Everyone. Now the clock ticks time away Struggles through another boring day Settle down and find the essence Of what you could really be It seems so It seems so It seems so Could it be so? Simplified! If you're cut or fuller figured Extend your middle finger Put up your dukes and tell them All to go away It seems so It seems so It seems so Could it be so? Simplified!

Took a hit Of a life I could not quit Got so sick of it Just so hard not to resist Travel light To make it through the night Hoping just to feel alright Gotta get that 2nd sight Oh yea, oh yea Honestly running to your grave Honestly running to your grave Honestly running to your grave Oh yea, oh yea, oh yea Falling leaves As your heart sits on the sleeve This longing to believe Count the stars that you can see Outer space A slower kind of race You can’t slow down the pace Hide it all without a trace Oh yea, oh yea Honestly running to your grave Honestly running to your grave Honestly running to your grave Oh yea, oh yea, oh yea (repeat) She’s the queen The partner in this dream Never going to extremes Figure out what this life means Oh yea, oh yea Honestly running to your grave Honestly running to your grave Honestly running to your grave Oh yea, oh yea, oh yea (repeat)

Bubble Gum 03:33
Going out the world is putty in our hands Make the plan moving at the speed of light… alright! Holding hands looking for that one night fan A distant land… exploration is the plan… alright! Tonight! Walking home but you can’t avoid the satellites above Like bubble gum on your shoe Toss it back, don’t give me any slack it’s just a fact, jack Cause I know you got my back another stack As the world falls through the cracks Walking home but you can’t avoid the satellites above Like bubble gum on your shoe … you can’t avoid, you can’t avoid… Like bubble gum on your shoe

I used to know a boy next door He would curse the dark and hope the light would come around once more And he knew one thing He had one trick To push aside a feeling and try it all and see what might stick And so he supposed With no wisdom to sow A carnival ride of adventure a traveling show Appeared on the scene This woman of means With tales of her own Magnificent golden road dreams With tales of her own Magnificent golden road dreams And so it begins The two make a scene With promises whispered in darkness that planted the seed The story it moves with two on the go And tales of their own Magnificent golden road dreams And tales of their own Magnificent golden road dreams
8.
Watching patiently removed Watching ashes fall to floor The air it strangles me again And though I totally refuse With hopes the smoke will go away As daddy comes back home a friend Criticize your mistake Let your star penetrate The paper sits in its place Open folded by the door A pen is in your hand Though I don't know what to do The air it falls apart again Anger turning into sand Criticize your mistake Let your star penetrate
