Tangerine 04:50
You’re my rainbow calculator You’re my sunshine locator You’re the pond I’m the alligator and I’m diving into you and You’re the carpenter who builds my love You’re the sharpener when life gets dull You’re my love machine and I’m a jumping bean I’m on you like a trampoline I don’t need gasoline cause you keep me running clean and You’re so smooth like Vaseline You’re so sweet like a tangerine You’re my tangerine You’re the sweetest thing You’re my tangerine You’re the sweetest thing You’re my tangerine You’re a flower pressed into paper I can save you there for later You’re the salt I’m the peppershaker and I’m shaken by your love and You’re the architect of my design You’re the market sector of good vibes You’re my love machine and I’m a jumping bean I’m on you like a trampoline I don’t need gasoline cause you keep me running clean and You’re so smooth like Vaseline You’re so sweet like a tangerine You’re my tangerine You’re the sweetest thing You’re my tangerine You’re the sweetest thing You’re my tangerine You’re my love machine I’m a jumping bean don’t need gasoline keep me running clean so smooth like Vaseline You’re my tangerine You’re the sweetest thing You’re my tangerine You’re the sweetest thing You’re my tangerine

She throws all her clothes in a suitcase Sets her ring beside his side of the bed She says, “It’s been nice, but it’s over” Tears his open heart right into shreds He says, “Hey hold up, where’d this come from? Give me one good reason why we’re done” She turns around and says, “Let me tell you why…” I belong to the wind, the clouds and the sea so I can’t belong to you when I long to be free I long to be free She finds a new home and she’s happy in a brand new town full of sound and light It’s just not enough to contain her When he turns his head she’s out of sight He unfolds her letter and reads through teary eyes I belong to the wind, the clouds and the sea so I can’t belong to you when I long to be free I long to be free I belong to the wind, the clouds and the sea so I can’t belong to you when I long to be free I long to be free

Find Me 03:19
I don’t know how long you’ve been gone now and I don’t know when you came back All I know is that I’m so glad you’re home now My whole world is back on track When I forget how much I need you you remind me When I lose my way you’re the only one who can find me You’re the only one who can find me Clean the anger out of my eyes Take my worries, lay them down Give me a new song to sing now I’m so glad you’re around When I chase all my simple dreams you’re behind me When I run and hide you’re the only one who can find me You’re the only one who can find me Oh I come inside cold and worn down to the ground You see just what I need and I’d be so lost if you weren’t around When I forget how much I need you you remind me When I lose my way you’re the only one who can find me You’re the only one who can find me

Outer Space 03:32
A hurricane in the middle of a moment My heart and soul wrapped up in a bag to go out the door with you They all stared in silence waiting as you stole my heart away Cause I never knew I would wanna be here in this place on a ledge just looking over outer space Everyday it’s easier letting go of what I know starting over with a new point of view So now I’m here in the middle of this moment The flames are turning blue and it feels like I’m flying through the stars with you I’m leaving my old skin on the rock by the tree where you found me Hold my hand and pull me forward and don’t let me slip away Cause I never knew I would wanna be here in this place on a ledge just looking over outer space Everyday it’s easier letting go of what I know starting over with a new point of view I can see through this galaxy you created in me The stars are all aligned and this moment is mine Cause I never knew I would wanna be here in this place on a ledge just looking over outer space Everyday it’s easier letting go of what I know starting over with a new point of view

I Don't Know 03:10
Driving in the dark and I’m headed home Driving kinda fast cause I know this road The thoughts in my mind won’t let me go slow I’m halfway there when it starts to snow Life won’t tell you where you’re gonna go Nobody knows and it’s getting cold The wind won’t tell you where it’s gonna blow and I don’t know no I don’t know My blurry vision’s getting worse here tonight I’m changing lanes and I don’t know if I’m alright I’m starting to skid and I hold on tight Can’t see the road curve to the right Life won’t tell you where you’re gonna go Nobody knows and it’s getting cold The wind won’t tell you where it’s gonna blow and I don’t know no I don’t know And as I’m skidding way off track in this tragic happenstance I crash and burn and fade to black but will I get a second chance? Life won’t tell you where you’re gonna go Nobody knows and it’s getting cold The wind won’t tell you where it’s gonna blow and I don’t know no I don’t know Life won’t tell you where you’re gonna go Nobody knows and it’s getting cold The wind won’t tell you where it’s gonna blow and I don’t know no I don’t know

Hello Where are you going today? Oh I know you feel so trapped in this place so displaced I know your pain I feel the same but we can make it better babe Let’s run away at midnight Meet me behind the swing set where the blue roses grow Let’s take the train to Fairline We’ll never learn to live if we can’t learn to let go I see the world in shades of grey Take me some place so far away We’ll be okay I know your pain I feel the same but we can make it better babe Let’s run away at midnight Meet me behind the swing set where the blue roses grow Let’s take the train to Fairline We’ll never learn to live if we can’t learn to let go Let’s run away at midnight Meet me behind the swing set where the blue roses grow Let’s take the train to Fairline We’ll never learn to live if we can’t learn to let go

I’ve been down this road before lost inside my head Tried to fight this feeling off leave it all unsaid I don’t know where I’m going I don’t know what I’m doing but I want so much more I lost all of my senses Marbles of glass are scattered like ashes all over my plans and I wake up exhausted Would you be so kind to help me find my peace of mind I’ve been trying to let go but I always wind up here in the middle of this place made of smoke and mirrors I just want some attention just a little affection tell me I’ll be okay I lost all of my senses Marbles of glass are scattered like ashes all over my plans and I wake up exhausted Would you be so kind to help me find my peace of mind Why do I always try making sense of life Everyday while they look away If I hold on I might just make it through I want to be more than torn regrets from your perspective Bits of love notes washed down the drain Don’t wish me away I lost all of my senses Marbles of glass are scattered like ashes all over my plans and I wake up exhausted Would you be so kind to help me find my peace of mind

You live on the same street where the sun rises and sets next to Heaven and I come by hoping to be caught in your nets Please take me with you honey cause I wanna fly with you in your hot air balloon straight to the moon I wanna dance all night and make you want to never leave my side Cause I love the sunrise in your eyes, your eyes I love the sunrise in your eyes, your eyes I don’t know how how to come down when I only want to be around all around you Take my old broken heart and just turn it inside out in your fingers, cause I wanna fly with you in your hot air balloon straight to the moon I wanna dance all night and make you want to never leave my side I wanna fly with you in your hot air balloon straight to the moon I wanna dance all night and make you want to never leave my side

Brother 03:35
I can see you from here standing there with no fear We’ve both come a long way looking to a brighter day No one thought we’d make it They said it was just a lost cause They were all mistaken cause we’re both here after all I’m gonna stand up unafraid of the thunder I’m gonna have hope in the pouring rain Don’t ever let go of your sense of wonder My brother I know we can get through the pain Growing up underground Broken dreams held us down We broke free you and me held down by nobody No one thought we’d make it They said it was just a lost cause They were all mistaken cause we’re both here after all I’m gonna stand up unafraid of the thunder I’m gonna have hope in the pouring rain Don’t ever let go of your sense of wonder My brother I know we can get through the pain I’m gonna stand up unafraid of the thunder I’m gonna have hope in the pouring rain Don’t ever let go of your sense of wonder My brother I know we can get through the pain

Oh no, there goes everything No more rainbows in this desert rain Holding on so tight hot days and colder nights No one knows what’s right I’m all alone and out of time Desert interstate Oh I had to run away run from all the pain before I go insane Everything I own and everything I know are miles and miles away behind this desert interstate Heroes have all abandoned me Glitter and gold is a fantasy Moving on, goodbye You’ll never see me cry No one knows just why I could never live a lie Desert interstate Oh I had to run away run from all the pain before I go insane Everything I own and everything I know are miles and miles away behind this desert interstate

Café 03:33
Every day now I sit and wait I hope I run into you at this small Café I had a latte You had a tea My world was set on fire when you turned and smiled at me And oh when I go home I feel something new inside of my bones and hey I wanna stay right here in this small Café I try to study keep my head down But every time you walk in my head spins around I’ll take a number I’ll get in line I’ll walk another mile just to see if you’ll be mine And oh when I go home I feel something new inside of my bones and hey I wanna stay right here in this small Café And oh when I go home I feel something new inside of my bones and hey I wanna stay right here in this small Café

One of these days I'm gonna fly away One of these ways I'm gonna go someplace I'll hop on a cloud and ride it downtown and never touch the ground Don't you worry I'll be fine all on my own This recurring dream is all I've ever known
13.
You came in my life as a stranger lemon in my iced tea Your sweetness hid all the danger you complicated me It’s clear but it’s hard to see You complicated me And I don’t know where you get off thinking my ship is sinking when you go overboard Give me some space get out of my brain It’s complicated Tell me who you think you are telling me that I’m the one Treating me like I’m a star when I just wanna have some fun I used to love being free but you complicated me And I don’t know where you get off thinking my ship is sinking when you go overboard Give me some space get out of my brain It’s complicated And I don’t know where you get off thinking my ship is sinking when you go overboard Give me some space get out of my brain It’s complicated
