Track Name: The Beginning
If planes didn't exist anymore
And the train tracks all were covered with soil
I think that I'd be fine
I'm happiest right where we are
I don't care much for the layout
Of the streets outside of this old town
But I do know the route to your brick house
And all of the record stores around

I've walked it a million times or so
But I've biked it a billion times more
It gets me to you twice as fast it seems
I'd hitch a ride to your front door
Risk it all to feel your floor
Kick my sandals off to please my feet

If planes didn't exist anymore
And I couldn't afford my car
It wouldn't much matter to me
I'm happiest right where we are
I don't care much for the layout
Of the streets outside of this old town
I do know the route to your blue house
And each of the thrift stores around

I've walked it a million times or so
Biked it a billion times more
It gets me to you twice as fast it seems
I'd hitch a ride to your front door
Risk it all to feel your floor
Kick my flip flops off to please my feet

If I didn't have you
I don't know why I'd get around
Or if I'd have reason to leave my house

I'm just glad I found you
As reason enough to love this town
And take in every step I take
As I race my way along the route to your blue house.

Chorus Repeat.
Track Name: If You Were Only Home
I've been driving around your boulevard
I've been trying to find all of the words
I've been dying to step out of my car
And try then to tell you all my thoughts since the start

Like you are smart, you are beautiful
I've always loved you, I've always known
I'd say these words with such diligence
If you were only home (If you were only home)

I've been pacing outside your apartment
My heart's been racing trying to find the nerve
I've been tracing my finger around your door
Chasing the words then to tell you all my thoughts

Like you are smart, and you're handsome
I've always loved you, I've always known
I'd say these words with such elegance
If you were only home (If you were only home)

Baby (baby)
Baby (baby)
Where the hell are you
It's 4 o'clock (it's 4 o'clock)
On the dot (on the dot)
You should have been home
But now I've lost (now I've lost)
My words (my nerve)
And I'm going home

But you are smart and you're beautiful
I've always loved you, I've always known
I'd say these words with such diligence
If you were only home.
Track Name: Our First Date
Bella, do you like me?
If you do check yes, if you don't check no and let me go.
Teddy, what's playin?
If it's good then yes, if it's not then no. Just joking.
It's a date then, 8 then right?
Sure sounds great and you're my ride.
All I've got is my ma's PT tonight,
There's a window busted out, but the weather should be alright.

Oh my God what do I wear,Why are my clothes all lame and square?
No you're being stupid. He probably won't even notice and/or care.
Oh my God I hope she's there. and what the hell is wrong with all my hair?
Settle down. I'm sures he likes you for you- quit that lying to yourself.
It's 7:45 and I still look like I crawled out from hell,
But it'll take 10 good years to change that about myself.
I'm gonna watch my words, gotta make sure I come off smooth
I'm planning conversations in my mirror, gotta get into my groove.
Oh man I'm gonna be late to our first date.

I'll be down in a minute
I'm sure you look fine
Just a second to finish up
We're running short on time
Okay I'm almost ready
The movie's starting soon
Thanks for waiting Teddy
Bella, anything for you

Teddy, can we skip the movie
Maybe go to it on the weekend instead
I mean, I guess so, if you want to
Is there anything that you'd rather do instead

I just want to take a walk
Head on down to the dock
Take this time just to talk
Learn about ourselves, never glancing at the clock

Will she take my hand
Should I kiss her at the end
Will she kiss me back. I should try.

Toward the stairs to her house
When will he kiss me?
We plan for the next time we're out
Why aren't we kissing?
She says goodnight as I take her hand
When will he kiss me?
And she leaned in. And he leaned in. And ohhh.
Track Name: The Seven Seas
Have you ever wondered
How many other lovers
Have loved eachother like we do?

Well with all due respect
To any other loves
None of them have a love, like one we do

{ Ooo ooo ooo ooo }

Cus’ you would sail the seven seas
Just to be with me

And I would clumb the tallest trees
Just to feel you breathe

{ eeee eee eee }

And I bet if you could see into
All of their bedooms
None of them could spoon, like the way we do.

Cus you hold me so tight
Like you’re never gonna let go
And I get all those silly chills
From my lips to my pinkey toes

{ ooo ooo ooo oo }

Cus’ you would sail the seven seas
Just to be with me

And I would clumb the tallest trees
Just to feel you breathe

{ eeee eee eee }
Track Name: Letters From London
Dear Annabelle,
I'm writing to say I can't go on one more single day
But I hope London is nice in July for you

I thought you'd have found yourself by now
I thought you'd find your way home somehow
But I hope London is nice in July for you (Ohhh London is nice in July for me)

Dear Theodore,
I don't know what to say
I love you more with every single day
But I hope California is nice in July for you

You knew I needed time away from home
To see if I could make it on my own
But I hope California is nice in July for you (Ohhh California is nice in July for me)

Dear Annabelle,
I can barely see
The tears have taken almost all of me
But I hope London is nice in August for you

I think that this should close the book of us
The distance has already closed on us
But I hope London is nice in August for you (Ohhh California is nice in August for you)

Dear Theodore,
I'd hoped you'd take this time
To grow into the man that I'd call mine
But I hope California is nice in August for you

Just call me back, I'm waiting by my phone
I've realized im ready to come home
and I hope California is nice in August for you (Ohhh London is nice in August for you)

And I know California will be nice for us, now
Track Name: You're All I Need
I'd die if you ever left me
And I'd cry if you ever let me go
Thought you should know
I find there's nothing quite better
than when you're around, I keep feeling more alive
When I'm with you

Don't fear for me to leave
Wear your heart upon your sleeve
Don't worry, I won't break it
I just really want to take it
And make sure we make it

I swear upon my own grave
That I'll love you until the day I die
And then some
I'd die if you ever left me
And I'd cry if you ever let me go
Thought you should know

Don't fear for me to leave
Wear your heart upon your sleeve
Don't worry, I won't break it
I just really want to take it
And make sure we make it

When we're driving in the dark
To the diner by the park
You're all I see
And when I'm sleeping next to you
On a Sunday afternoon
You're all I need

I'd die if you ever left me
And I'd cry if you ever let me go
Thought you should know
I find there's nothing quite better
Than when you're around, I keep feeling more alive
When I'm with you

Don't fear for me to leave
Wear you're heart upon your sleeve
Don't worry, I won't break it
I just really want to take it
And make sure we make it
Track Name: Be Mine.
Can I have a moment dear to get your impression
You and I have been for years, so I have a question
Are you free to be with me forever

It hasn't always been perfect love, in fact at times it's been hell
But there's nowhere else I'd rather be than singing with you to wedding bells
Are you free to be with me forever

Here we are amid the stars just like the night we met
Time is ours if you will be mine

If this goes as I suspect, at least I hope it will
Life will be damn near perfect, and we might even still
Are you free to be with me forever

Here we are amid the stars just like the night we met
Time is ours if you will be mine

Take this chance (you can take my hands)
And the plans will plan themselves
No need to worry honey (no I'm not being funny)
I have fallen hard for you
Are you free to be with me, I can see my life in yours
Time is ours if you will be mine

We don't have much, there is no ring to show you that I care
But I'll give you ever word I sing if you give your life to share
Are you free to be with me forever
Yes I'm free to be with you forever
Track Name: As Happy As I Am
He packs up his life on a Sunday morning and quietly heads out the door
I roll to his pillow to hide from the dawning, our bedsheets cascading the floor
I'm not sure he knew when he turned in the doorway and whispered out all of his love
That I was awake and thinking of my ways to make him stay.

I sit back at home with the letters we've written, shuffling over our words
The phrases get blurred by the thoughts that we fit into lines, crammed like a herd
I'm not sure she knew when she wrote down I love you, that I would call on her bluff
But now if she knew, she'd know those three words were rarely barely enough

I've never been quite as happy as I am.

She takes in the view from the coast in the evening as the sun rests over the sea
I take in her head as she rests from the driving we’ve done through beaches and trees
I’m not sure he knows as he chases the daylight that this is where we belong
Now if he knew, he’d know this is all I’ve needed all along

I’ve never been quite as happy as I am.

I wake to arrive here in your eyes
I sleep in comfort and peace in the night
All troubles will fade
As we wade through the dark in each other's light

I've never been quite as happy as I am.
Track Name: Keep Me Awake
The kids are all grown before you know
Time goes by faster as they go
Keep me awake
Keep me awake
Keep me awake
I can't risk to miss any more days

The trees are all taller than us now
They cover most all of our house
Keep me awake
Keep me awake
Keep me awake
I can't risk to miss any more days

Well they've gone flying by
Just as our parents cried
We'll pay for their college
It's worth it for knowledge
It's just a shame
The best schools they seem
So far from home

It's down to you and i
But love's always at our side
Keep me awake
Keep me awake
Keep me awake
I can't risk to miss any more days.
Track Name: Can I Have This Dance?
Can I have this dance
I think that this may be our last chance
For I'm bound to sleep beyond these sheets
Just turn out the lights and hold my hands
And sing to me, will you

I pray I'll dream of you
Just as clear as the day that I found you
When all my friends had set their eyes on you
But they had no luck because you found me too

I'm getting tired now
Just lay here and tell me how you fell for me
Please tell me all of your plans
I hope you understand I'll always love you
Track Name: The End
You Swore to me that you would never leave
I swear that I will keep you to your word
I know its hard and that it hurts
But being alone is not what I deserve
I’ve given you the best years of my life
Im not ok to face this world alone
Now all our kids have grown and gone
Now its too damn quiet in our home


Theres, still so much that I would like to say
But I won’t say it with doctors in your room
I know you’ll hate what I have to say
But if your gone I wanna be gone to
You’re the first love, the only love I’ve known
And Id never have it any other way
But you promised wed love until forever
Not just until we got old and grey
