Track Name: Cool Party Pool
They were right
I didn’t care so much about being free
And I might
Have run into darkness once again
I’ll start a fight
I don’t want to see anyone tonight
I just want to hear you say
Yes or nay

Every time my phone goes off
I take a walk down gut churn lane
Should I hit send or feign a cough
Will I ever have to walk with a cane
Help me doubt my strengths
How come all the other girls seem vain
Tell me is it strange
Please say that you need me

Scarcity
never fails to drive insane
If we’re talking strategy
More like a cold hard love trap me potion please have
Mercy on me
I’m weak I’m lost you’re sweet I’m yours
Ain’t no going back
She was cool
But was she high school pool party cool?

Did he fret or tell you off
Can you make your mind on your own
‘Cause I’ve been told it’s bad enough
That you kicked the garage door open and
Kissed me
How dare you pretend
That I’d never go and cause trouble (bite me)
Very strange to say we’ll never be friends

Scarcity
never fails to drive insane
If we’re talking strategy
More like a cold hard love trap me potion please go
Easy on me
I’m weak I’m lost you’re sweet I’m yours
Ain’t no going back
She was cool
But was she high school pool party cool?

If you wanna lose your lover
Just say that you love her
Way to spoil your fortunate mistake
To hell with the blame
Chances are we’ll never be together
No need to refrain
I’ll be obsessing for a week
At least you’re not ruining my summer
Track Name: Cut To The Chase
I’m at a loss for words and I feel a fool
I got nothing to say like I thought I would
The time’s right to get dumb and lighten up the mood, come get a taste
You say you wanna dance my hand will
Gladly find its way around your waist
What a waste of time
All our conversations those that made me drool
The thwarted expectations and the broken rules
Valuable miscalculations, all so typical
Long was the chase
Everything that’s served us right
Do we bury it down or do we cherish the blame?
Don’t let it deflate!

It’s unlike me to jump the gun now cut to the chase
Hold me tight until your name rolls off my tongue
I’d rather be the sad one if you’re bored, no longer fazed by
The former me who tried to change the one he loved

Looking back you see the wake it seems a miracle
By putting two and two on paper we are bound two rue this
One is on a mission, the other cynical, it’s all it takes
Unresolved infatuation once alleviated what comes of our parade
Catch the train or hike!

After all the jokes and memories
If remains some trust, autonomy
Take nothing for granted
Track Name: Blindfolded
Another day with his eyes closed
One more step much closer to the dive
She’s not quite as tame as she seems to be
A fortnight now since she first called
and yet he’s weak enough to lose the fight
she’ll get what she wants, just a matter of time

Only he knows she’s trouble
He’s seen her glide a thousand miles
Over commitments manifold
Inside and out of his numbed out mind it’s all

Broken phials and sleight of style
she spins the cards
he knows he’s lost the hand
Ooh
Silent threats and gradual revelations
The trap clamped down
then all will went missing

He knew the mistakes all along
The oh so enticing stories her eyes told
His heart had heard it many times before
And his excuses seemed feeble
As if he’d bought a thousand lies
There’s no denying the water’s cold
Around and about all the scattered pieces of

Broken phials and sleight of style
she deals the cards
he knows he’s lost the hand
Ooh
Silent threats and gradual revelations
The trap clamped down
then all will went missing

Ask yourself twice if you’re craving the blindfold
The taste is sweet and riches seem untold
Her eyes are bright
Your throat will feel tight
Ask yourself twice if you’re wearing the blindfold
The taste is sweet but the truth will soon unfold
Be wary, you could lose your mind
Track Name: Summer Is A Lie
Summer is a lie, unless you wanna try
To believe with me let's fly away
Where snowmen aren't made out of sand
I'll show you the way
A real Christmas, a proper Christmas
Sparks shivers and awe and you'll say
Come closer darling, snap into the dream 'cause
Summer is a lie that anyone can afford
They went for a sleigh ride on the beach
Where snowmen are made out of sand
For years he had known
You have it in you, a shine of your own
Who else but the jeweller lives happily
For the night is dark and only he holds the light
Summer is a lie and the songs they play
Don't match the weather, when did the spirit die?
Who gives baby?
Let's fly away hold my hand I'll show you the way
We don't need Christmas, let it be treacherous
His heart was open and no love had leaked
So she stepped right inside and screamed
Summer is a lie
Made blind by the light, knocked out upon sight
Summer is a lie
Jaded by the stream, frightened in his dreams
Shattered in a golden and green
Summer of all lies
I don't want your gift, you are but a wimp
He picked up a cup and had a merry little summer
He had a merry little summer
What a nice summer
He had a merry little summer
Summer is a lie
Track Name: Northern Lights (live)
Enlighten me help me see
Master astronomy and chemistry
There are things I couldn’t fathom
What’s the duration of a thought
for my day’s gone by
As ants were biting at my feet
My mind was dwelling on your eyes
all along
I’ve seen an avalanche where the ocean normally lies
And when the skies turned black I got a front row seat
I thought I’d given love one chance too many
But now here we are
Another line in the book

I’m keen on learning
Are you keen on teaching me
Tonight there will be satellites
Colliding on your doorstep and if you’d like
to see them northern lights
glowing on your ceiling all you need to do
is hold my hand
I’m keen on learning
What’s the story like?

They say I never shut up
But what do they know?
It goes to show that your lips have found a secret
Some sort of magic trick with no wand and you pulled the heist
As swift as an arrow claiming a king’s defeat
I could be speaking in tongues
You seem to understand
the silence between my shouts
Before I ask you twice to acknowledge the feat
Make sure the way is clear straight to the upper tier
I hope your spelling is sound
What’s your favorite four-letter word?
