Track Name: Same Page
Same Page

I think we’re on the same page
Don’t wanna have a conversation cuz we want
Nothing to change
Labels are just simple words
But translate to complication in this social world, but I want
Nothing to change

I just want to say
You keep growing on me everyday
And I just have to say
I’d like to be the only face you see when you wake

Well the other night it flooded
I got stuck, I couldn’t pick you up, just the
Worst of luck
So I waded to the pub across the street
An hour later you showed up with soaking feet, wait,
You walked miles in the rain just to see my face? Well,

I just want to say
You keep growing on me everyday
And I just have to say
I think we’re on the same page

You kissed my cheek to dry my tears
I hadn’t opened up like that in years
What are you doing to me?
I’ve been afraid for so long
But you took my hands and you held on
Now all I want to do is hold on too
To hold onto you, oh

I just want to say
You keep growing on me everyday
And I just have to say
I’d like to be the only face you see when you wake

And I think we’re on the same page
Well I hope we’re on the same page
But I think we’re on the same page
Oooh

Track Name: The Trip
The Trip

Today was JFK
New York City back to New Orleans
Newlyweds and business men
There were architects and soccer teams and mothers and best friends

Noisy hustle and bustle, rushing
Through security to the shuttle
So much noise through all the crazy 
Till you’re silent once you’re in your seat on the airplane

Then all the stress from the day
All of a sudden just dissipates
Cuz when you make it above the clouds
Nothing matters until you’re back on the ground

Maybe then a stranger will become a friend
Even if you’ll never meet again
Cuz when you make it above the clouds
Nothing matters until you’re back on the ground

As you touch down
Allow reality to come back round
Anticipate familiar faces
Let the escalator take you down to your embraces

Grab your bags
And take a quick look back
The trip is always magical
But you’ve never been happier to finally get home

Track Name: I'm Still Here
I’m Still Here

It’s been a long time
Well fancy seeing you again
I never thought we’d circle back around
But look where we’ve found ourselves now

All I want to do is just believe that you and me could be something
We never even gave ourselves a chance
I told myself that I would never let you get to me again
But I don’t want this to be the end

So let me be completely clear
If your heart is still open
I’m still here

And I knew
The last time I saw you
Things would never be the same
But looking back
That wouldn’t be the worst thing
In our case

All I want to do is just believe that you and me could be something
We never even gave ourselves a chance
I told myself that I would never let you get to me again
But I don’t want this to be the end

So let me be completely clear
If your heart is still open
I’m still here

But not for long
I’ve already moved on once before, now

All I want to do is just believe that you and me could be something
We never even gave ourselves a chance
I told myself that I would never let you get to me again
But I don’t want this to be the end

So let me be completely clear
If your heart is still open
I’m still here
I’m still here

Track Name: Do You Ever Wonder
Do You Ever Wonder

Do you ever wonder
Cuz I wonder every day
There are mysteries all around me
But it wouldn't be fun any other way

Do you ever wonder

Do you ever wonder why we can’t control our laughter
Or why kissing makes us happy
Do you ever wonder about fibonacci numbers
Or why we blush when someone really gets to us

Do you ever wonder why smiling is contagious
Or how it’s crazy to think that someone thought up time
Do you ever wonder why certain people just can’t face things
Well I guess everyone just has a different mind

Do you ever wonder

Do you ever wonder what your dreaming really means
Or what you should believe if you haven’t seen it
Do you ever wonder who invented optical illusions
Were they delusional or brilliant
And who’s equipped to judge that anyway

Do you ever wonder why smiling is contagious
Or how it’s crazy to think that someone thought up time
Do you ever wonder why certain people just can’t face things
Well I guess everyone just has a different mind

Do you ever wonder
Cuz I wonder every day
There are mysteries all around me
But I wouldn’t have it any other way

Do you ever wonder

Track Name: Golden Eyes
Golden Eyes

I’ve still only met you a couple of times
But your impeccable impression just won’t leave my mind

And a girl can get giddy once in a while
So let me have my time
Cuz you’re doing something right

That squint in your eyes
With your perfectly seductive half of a smile
It intoxicates me
And it’s made it’s way into my daydreams

And a girl can get giddy once in a while
So let me have my time
Cuz you’re doing something right

You’re a mystery to me
But let’s keep it at this level
Cuz I wanna feel this way forever, yes

You’re a mystery to me
But let’s keep it at this level
Cuz I wanna feel this way forever

And a girl can get giddy once in a while
So let me have my time
Cuz you’re doing something right
Yeah let me have my time
Cuz you’re doing something right

Track Name: In This Moment
In This Moment

My parents always told me to be
Whatever I wanted to be
To make whatever I could of my life
I promise I’m gonna try

And now I’m sitting on this airplane wondering
How the following days
Will guide me on this journey
And take me to the perfect place

And in this moment
In this very moment
I’m alone
And it’s beautiful
In this moment
In this very moment
I’m alone
And it’s beautiful

Now I sit on my regular seat on this bus
Unsure of where to go
But I suppose I’ll just go with the flow
I’m sure I’ll enjoy every moment

So I rest my head on the glass
Just trying to grasp how the following days
Will guide me on this journey
And take me to the perfect place

And in this moment
In this very moment
I’m alone
And it’s beautiful
In this moment
In this very moment
I’m alone
And it’s beautiful

And all my fears of getting real
Just seem to sneak right out the door
Because I know this is exactly what
My soul’s been searching for

And in this moment
In this very moment
I’m alone
And it’s beautiful
In this moment
In this very moment
I’m alone
And it’s beautiful

Because I know this is exactly what
My soul’s been searching for
