Track Name: Light A Spark
how am I to write a song?
when every word I write is wrong.
and you are good while i'm forgettable
everything i say regrettable

you're a statue i'm a rock
you're cozy mittens I'm just a sock

oh what'd i do to capture you?
and why you'd stay with such a goob as me
it baffles me but if opposites attract
I guess we're the perfect match
so right the dark
and light a spark with me

how am I to write a tune
that paints your beauty bright as june

and you are greater, so incredible
my shirt's red cause expendable

you're a statue i'm a rock
you're cozy mittens I'm just a sock

oh what'd i do to capture you?
and why you'd stay with such a goob as me
it baffles me but if opposites attract
I guess we're the perfect match
so right the dark
and light a spark with me

ba da da ba da da da da da da (ect)

and why you'd stay with such a goob as me
it baffles me but if opposites attract
I guess we're the perfect match
so right the dark
and light a spark with me
Track Name: Stuck With You
hey, hello, hi would you give me your ears, your plans for the night, and they next few-hundred years?
would you spend them with me?
i'll give you some time, it would take fifteen seconds to make up your mind it would take me half as long.
oh you're an easy decision.

and i don't remember a time when you weren't on my mind.
no memory sticks that you're not fixed into.
and if you're the glue I'm glad i'm stuck with you.

so brick by brick i'll be the strongest tower. our love will fit and i'll only fall for you like i was meant to do.
over time our roots will grow together as i make you mine and i'll become yours too. i can feel it coming soon.

and i don't remember a time when you weren't on my mind.
no memory sticks that you're not fixed into.
and if you're the glue I'm glad i'm stuck with you.

(Ghosty noises)

and i don't remember a time when you weren't on my mind.
no memory sticks that you're not fixed into.

no i don't remember a time when you weren't on my mind.
no memory sticks that you're not fixed into.
and if you're the glue I'm glad i'm stuck with you
and if you're the glue I'm glad i'm stuck with you
Track Name: I Been Waiting
at last alone trying to think of how to say,
"we're halfway home." i'd be a fool to let you get away.
i don't really care if i'm losing myself just as long as i get lost with you.
so tell me what you wanna do.
tell me how to write it, how to put you in a song.
i'm a little left-footed gonna shake it with you right or wrong.
baby i don't care if i'm making them stare just as long as long as you keep dancing with me.
so tell me what it's gonna be.

(hey)

i been waiting for you for so long come on don't you think it'd be a shame to go?
Not a moment too soon to have my arms around you dancing to the radio.

a few more seconds till we make it to your door.
you got me hoping and-a praying for a way to have a minute more.
you don't pay attention to the hands on your wrist when you're living by the beat of your heart.
i think its time to start.

(hey)

i been waiting for you for so long come on don't you think it'd be a shame to go?
not a moment too soon to have my arms around you dancing to the radio.

even when I go I'll get a grip
i still got the taste of your name on my lips

i been waiting for you for so long come on don't you think it'd be a shame to go?
not a moment too soon to have my arms around you dancing to the radio.
i been waiting for you for so long come on don't you think it'd be a shame to go?
not a moment too soon to have my arms around you dancing to the radio.
i been waiting for you
i been waiting for you
i been waiting for you
i been waiting for you
Track Name: Do You Know
i think it's just the little things like how i trust you when you sing or when you tell me that my dreams mean something or nothing.
or that you don't have to spill your heart. we can chill and just play cards.
i'll watch your nose for when it starts to scrunch up when you're bluffing.

do you know how hard i've fallen? does it show when i come calling?
there's no cold when i've around you, darlin. please can i be yours?
what does it mean? what is this feelin? i'm off my feet straight through the ceiling.
off my sleeve, my heart your stealing, darlin. please can i be yours?

seven days it's been like this. i wake with your name on my lips.
i can't believe I almost kissed you while you were sleeping.
we can talk or watch tv, move to nashville, tn. As long as you are close to me, whatever we are feeling.

do you know how hard i've fallen? does it show when i come calling?
there's no cold when I've around you, darlin. please can i be yours?
what does it mean? what is this feelin? i'm off my feet straight through the ceiling.
off my sleeve, my heart your stealing, darlin. please can i be yours?

please excuse me if i stare.
i can't help thinking we'd be better as a pair.

do you know how hard i've fallen? does it show when i come calling?
there's no cold when i've around you, darlin. please can i be yours?
what does it mean? what is this feelin? i'm off my feet straight through the ceiling.
off my sleeve, my heart your stealing, darlin. please can i be yours?
Track Name: The Way You Move
I like the way you move it's alright
and why don’t you stay on through the night
a little luck and coffee cups we’ll write a tune so true
cause I like the way you move
i like the way you move

say, do you hear the people calling you? I do
and hey, i can’t bare to spend the day away from you
with bucket seats, and kisses sweet, we’ll drive to find a view
and hey, i can’t bare to spend the day away from you

i don’t know what i can do when you’re always in my head
I just need you by my side won’t you cuddle up in bed

I like the way you move it's alright
and why don’t you stay on through the night
a little luck and coffee cups we’ll write a tune so true
cause I like the way you move
i like the way you move
Track Name: Easy To Love
what if I say I need you baby
everyday I been thinking of you
and anyway what would you do
if i say i need you

dance to the tune
of our tip tap feet on pavemented streets
nothing to do
but fall in love with you

what if i say ay ay you are the one i need
bay ay by that would be everything
say to me you are so easy to love


darling hey I need you boo
and everyday I been loving on you
and anyway what would you do
if is say i need you

dance to the tune
of the pitter ping on nyloned stings
oh nothing to do
but fall in love with you

what if i say ay ay you are the one i need
bay ay by that would be everything
say to me you are so easy to love

[oo-ing]

bay ay by that would be everything
say to me you are so easy

I will say ay ay you are the one i need
bay ay by that would be everything
say to me you are so easy to love

I love you [x5]
Track Name: Mama Told Me
mama told me, "don't be hasty." daddy said to wait.
you've got your whole life ahead.
but in you'd walk and down I'd fall, forget about my ma and pa and I don't think that I'll get over it.

it takes a certain somebody to feed a hungry heart
then try to toss it to the wind.
i spread my wings to soar away. i flew just like a rock they say and I've been sinking deeper ever since.

why did you go? why did you go? why did you leave me all alone?
what am I supposed to do? why is it always give and take when it comes to hearts that break? why did you go why do i still wait up for you?
why did you go why do i still wait up for you?

before i heard you say it i might even have agreed.
that ship was headed out to sea.
but goodbye made me change my mind. who wants to get left behind?
i'm pretty sure that you're the one for me.

why did you go? why did you go? why did you leave me all alone?
what am I supposed to do? why is it always give and take when it comes to hearts that break? why did you go why do i still wait up for you?
why did you go why do i still wait up for you?

oh what a curse that you left me first, turned my indifferent heart into shakespeare with words. Who knew there'd be so many ways to say, "i miss you."
and when i think clearer i bet you I'll say, "i didn't really like you that much anyway 'til you left me."
still why'd you leave me?

ahhh

why did you go? why did you go? why did you leave me all alone?
what am I supposed to do? why is it always give and take when it comes to hearts that break? why did you go why do i still wait up for you?
why did you go I don't think I'll wait up for you.
Track Name: My Love, I Love You So
i saw the writing on the wall
i had the feeling i would fall
but crumblings not scary to me when
i know that i’ll be seeing you again

you wear your worry on your brow
but worry not I’ve got you now
i’ll keep you safe and dry your eyes
nothing dear could take me from your side

oh say you’ll spend the day with me
today and every day baby
i’ll cuddle you, i won’t take no
oh say my love, i love you so

and every night incase you shouldn’t know
I’ll say my love I love you so
Track Name: Cabin Song
i wanna love you like my mother always said I should.
We'll live together in a cabin made of cedar wood.
i'll give you everything and you'll be my everything too.
oh baby, i love you.

i love the way you always say you wanna hold my hand
and how your fingers get so warm i'll never understand.
somehow you always know exactly what to say and do.
oh baby, i love you.

oh did you know
that i like the way you blush every time our fingers touch and
ooo you know its true
aint no place too far away from me. i'd sail across the seven seas. i'd fight for you with nails and teeth if i could only hear you say those four little words to me.
oh baby, i love you.

(bird solo)

(ooo and aaah-ing)

i wanna love you like my mother always said i should.
we'll live together in a cabin made of cedar wood.
Track Name: Do You Love Me Too
do you like me in a dress?
I like you very best
but what if I were just a mess?
I'd still think you were blessed
do you like me in the morning?
darling, I am yearning
at night when I am toss and turning?
my feet, my heart, you're warming

do you like me when it's rainy?
i like you night and daily
and will you stay when I am eighty?
you'll always be my baby

Tell me if it's true, am I in love with you?
and tell me do you love me too?

do you like me in a suit?
I always think you're cute
out in the country where I'm farming?
you'll always be prince charming
do you like me when it's colder
we'll have to cuddle closer
what if my plans are all too boring?
my dear, we'll go exploring

do you like me in the evening?
you'd better be believing
I sometimes wonder if I'm dreaming
what is it that you're meaning?

Tell me if it's true, am I in love with you?
and tell me do you love me too?

Tell me if it's true, am I in love with you?
and tell me do you love me too?
