Track Name: "Before You Sang Of Me"
your smile was brighter
before you smiled for me
your heart, how it fluttered
before it beat for me
your eyes shone with sparkles
before you looked for me
your face was much kinder
before you lived through me

and i'll be the reason
you leave it all behind
and i'll be the selfish
thief who steals your time
and i'll be the lover
you'll wish you didn't find
all in due time

your songs were so pretty
before you sang of me
your music had passion
before you played for me
your dress, it was pure white
before that night with me
your life full of promise
before you lived for me

'cause i am the reason
you left it all behind
and i am the selfish
thief who steals your time
and i'm the lost lover
you wish you didn't find
but please believe i try
Track Name: "Pink & Blue Sidewalk Chalk"
do you remember the words
that we meant so long ago
and how does time slowly
dull them til they're dead
i still meant them
i still mean them

do you remember the way
the moon drew shadows underneath
the bodies that once
held hands in the dark
now they're apart
now they're apart

you are all that i need

do you remember the world
the colors dancing 'cross earth
and how does time slowly
drain them til it's grey
til they're washed out
now they're washed out

do you remember the hearts
pink and blue sidewalk chalk
why does time always take away the child
i still feel it
i still feel it

you are all that i need
Track Name: "My Favorite Ghost"
you're such a mess
beautiful mess
out in the rain
white springtime dress
bowed on the ground
amongst the trees
you cursed aloud
'don't weep for me'

but you are my favorite ghost
5 girls but i miss you the most
you are my favorite ghost
you are..

out by the lake
out of the city's reach
we found a place
where it was just you and me
you let me in
one warm june night
i was your first
and you, you were mine

and you are my favorite ghost
5 girls but i remember you most
you are my favorite ghost
you are..

light rains down on us

xs marked the days
but you never understood
so i let you feel love
i gave you all that i could
every day by the lake
i'd watch you dance 'round the trees
til you hid behind one
and disappeared with the spring

but you are my favorite ghost
5 girls but i loved you the most
you are my favorite ghost
you are..
Track Name: "I Think That It Was Love"
Oh, Yui, won't you hear me out, girl
I've walked for miles, girl
In no shoes
Sold all I had to a stranger
And now it's stranger
That I see you

Had the words down in my head
But they scattered at your speech
I watched the sun set in the west
And then again in the east
I think it made me weak

Oh, Yui, won't you look my way, girl
Just a glance, girl
Maybe a smile
Made a map of where I'm going
Lines intersecting
Where you are

Had a plan in place for this
For every place that you went
Must have been something big
But can't remember what it is
I think it's why I live

I made the world tilt from my room, girl
To fall to you, girl
But I just fell
So, Yui, won't you sing a song, girl
I'll sing along, girl
It's all that's left

Had them locked down in my mind
The words frozen on my tongue
A melody I thought I'd find
Until it all came undone
I think that it was love
Track Name: "Everything That April Brings"
sky's ablaze
and everything that april brings
music paints
the colors burst and bloom in spring
long the day
the one that's blue and gold and green
so let's just play
'cause you're the only one i see

see you in that light again
i need this now
first is up then always down
i need this now
i need this...

by the bridge
an image flashes in my head
two kids jump
then suddenly we're back in bed
but what's it mean
to live forever in suspense
but here today
let's pretend it makes no sense

see you in that light again
i need this now
first is up then always down
i need this now
i need this...

is this how we live forever, love?
is this how we'll be remembered, love?
is this how we live forever, love?
is this how we live forever..?
Track Name: "Jumping's For The Brave"
i saw you
outside
springtime
'99
can you still
see the crowd
everyone
gathered 'round

sky ignites
midnight
take your hand
take flight
can you still
feel the rush
hope no one
catches us

it was the first time
for either of us
give into the moment
i will not let this go
for the first time
for either of us
a torn white springtime dress
and grass stains on your knees
a thousand memories

2 AM
time flies
one last kiss
goodnight
whisper soft
something sweet
turn around
as you leave

i knew it
right then
couldn't sleep
risk the end
would you say
when you wake
yours to give
mine to take

it was the first time
for either of us
were we young and stupid
did we take on much too much
for the first time
for either of us
you told me something pretty
then fought off sleep's advances
then you were gone

racing minds don't mind it
and sleeping's for the dead
but what i wouldn't give
to have you here
next to me in bed
racing minds don't mind it
and jumping's for the brave
but what i wouldn't give
to hear you sing
to hear you sing my name

it was the first time
for either of us
it wasn't just the moment
i meant what i said
for the first time
for either of us
your smile was all i needed
and i knew that it was real
for the first time
for either of us
give into the moment
i will not let this go
for the first time
for either of us
you whispered something pretty
something to hold onto
a thousand memories
now you are gone
Track Name: "Meaningless Words"
i thought i created
something everyone could love
but it wasn't enough
so now i'm giving up
i'm giving..

and all the blood dripping
to the floor from the heart in these strings
it's got me wondering
was anyone ever listening

i thought i found home
a light shining in the night
but the light was a fire
a bridge burning down
it's burning..

so this is what you get
a fire that burns in the west
and songs that are never heard
in the end it's all just meaningless words
Track Name: "Oblivious Saint"
you say lost the one looking out for everyone
and i feel like i've wrote this song 1,000 times before
there's only so many words you can rhyme with 'adore'
but that don't mean that i don't love you anymore

you know
should i tell you so

you say you sit waiting for the right one to come along
and all of these years i've just watched riding the wrong
there's only so many chances you get to get on
but that don't mean that i won't miss you when i'm gone

you know
should i tell you so
Track Name: "Twirl & Spin"
when you speak in your tongue, girl
i do not understand, i do not understand
and how are we to make this work, girl
i do not have a plan, i do not have a plan

all of that just
disappears
when i hear
the way
you say
you love me

the light that fades
it then shines
anytime
any place
you say
you love me

when you smile in covered hands, girl
that's when i first knew, i fell in love with you
and when your speech starts speeding up, girl
that's all you have to do, i know you feel it too

reflections
in the lake
the stars
it's you
it's me
you hold me

the fireworks flash
and dance
on the waves
behind
the house
where you first told me

when you're wearing that white dress, girl
the way you twirl and spin, your beautiful white skin
and when you're dressed in black and red, girl
i lose myself again, the most beautiful sin

the colors play
their games
in my mind
i don't mind
all the time
it's so pretty

something so
familiar
in your eyes
recognize
someone
long forgotten

say it's fine
say it's alright
say it's goodnight
and not goodbye
say goodnight
say goodnight
say goodnight
say goodnight

i know that we can make this work, girl
i see it in your eyes, i see it in your eyes
