Track Name: Summer Kids
Closing my eyes as the summer ends
I haven't felt you in a while
Caught in a phase with bitter mistakes
Taking my time to unwind
Tonight I want to be with the summer kids
If I only knew where they hide
Come take a seat, be reckless with me
You look up for a ride
Take a breath, now easy does it
I don't really want to do this anymore

Just take me away
What are you waiting for?
I'll take you away
But what are you running from?
You used to be so familiar
Look at me
Look at me now

Coming to terms, got no common sense
Letting the time pass on by
Running in place now I'm matching your pace
There's nowhere left we can hide
Tonight I want to be in your summer skin
Watch as our bones ignite
Falling from grace and I'm craving the taste
This is how souls collide

Slow your roll she said
Take a breath
now easy does it
I don't really want to do this anymore

Just take me away
What are you waiting for?
I'll take you away
But what are you running from?
You used to be so familiar
Look at me
Look at me now

Mind the road
We can't pull over
Your heart is a ghost
when your head's on my shoulder
We both know that we can't start over
So where do we go?
Where do we go?
Track Name: Slow Down
We're getting colder under the sun
Staying longer where we never should've gone
Charming and able because we're young
Life's a contest that you never knew you won
We'll stay out until we're swallowed by sun
Everyone

Slow down, my body's aching
And I'm trying to shake this out
I know that we can flourish
In the currents of ourselves
I've grown beyond containing
And you've gotta break me out
But I can't promise I won't let you down

We're getting older under the sun
Twenty-two years and we've only just begun
Live in this fiction surrounding us
New renditions that we're learning how to trust
We're staying out until we're swallowed by sun
Everyone

Slow down, my body's aching
And I'm trying to shake this out
I know that we can flourish
In the currents of ourselves
I've grown beyond containing
And you've gotta break me out
But I can't promise I won't let you down
Track Name: Cupid
They always say it happens only if it's meant to be
Well I'm a tool for tuning cosmic harmony
Boy's and girls can't manage their attracting biology
Chemically cued passion fashioned faithfully

He's in the moment
She's got her hands tied
I see it crashing down
But a novice with notice
And an angel with hell ties
Surely can pull this out

But I don't think I like this now
Love relying on a spell
An arrow and her heart's strung out
This sweetness isn't sitting well
Hung up with an empty feeling
I'm leaving this behind
I don't think I like this now, no

They always say it happens only if it's meant to be
I'm the cherub dealing mortal destiny
Caught in the passion of a sudden golden sting
Love's the death of reason and you're wounded fatally

He's in the moment
She's got her hands tied
I see it crashing down
But a novice with notice
And an angel with hell ties
Surely can pull this out

But I don't think I like this now
Love relying on a spell
An arrow and her heart's strung out
This sweetness isn't sitting well
Hung up with an empty feeling
I'm leaving this behind
I don't think I like this now, no

Take a chance and do it for yourself
I'm sure you could do better than this
bright eyes burning like this rose colored mistake now
I'm sure you could do better than this
a boy and his bow feeling wounded and misplaced
sordid and two-faced
Track Name: Nothing But A Start
You've shown me nothing but your heart
Where nothing feels lonely
Nothing falls apart
And I'll walk miles in the dark
With nothing to see
nothing but stars

You've seen this friction get to me
Holding onto you holding me

I've seen you notice these scars
But then we put them aside
and say they only go so far
I'll sing you slowly back to sleep
When you're scared take my hand
and I'll lead you to your dream

Let inertia carry me
Sweet perfection in between
I'll show this is nothing but a start
I'll show this is nothing but a start
