Track Name: Good Years
Do you remember Benjamin Hill
Once I was younger
We knew a lot then your Mom and I
It’s okay to tell you it’s okay
Right here we’re doing alright, alright

CH:
Sad song give me some sad song
Pass the cup over here
Sad song give me some sad song
Now that it’s over
We had some good years
(2x)
 
Dig me a hole, build me a spaceship
Claw out the honey
Give me somewhere to go
Feel like you’re alone
You think that I’m not
Already home
I’m home
 
All I’ve been up to
The places that I’ve seen
Houses that we lived in
Are all a part of me
 
CH x2
Track Name: Brother
Wake up
Roll down the windows and ride
Cause it's July
One two
You're out looking for someone
To tell you what to do
Little brother make sure you don't choke
Just hold your breath when you go under
Long nights waiting for it to change
I keep it moving but you wonder
Why I won't do it for you

Disguise
No one will know your secret lullaby
What would you do
If the sky were red and your blood was blue
The walls were wood and the stairs were steep
Little brother talking in his sleep
I see this place and I see you now
You know who to love and how

Go out and ride
Goodbye's not something you decide
So much unsaid
The things I've told you in my head
Little brother make sure you don't choke
When you come up and find your thunder
It won't replace what you know now
You know who to love and how
Track Name: River
I met a girl from the river
Who'd love anything that she moved
When I touched her fingers she'd quiver
And shout You've got nothing to lose

Don't be gentle she told me
Dear Mister they lied to you
Don't be gentle, you don't have to choose
We've all been wrong before
Girl at the river

What went wrong on the day you were born
Sit up and laugh just take it
Sure as a lamb
Show us your smile Capricorn

When you kissed me I saw little envelopes
When you kissed me
Small wild strawberries
I don't know why

Don't be gentle she told me
Dear Mister they lied to you
Don't be gentle, you don't have to choose
'cause we've all been wrong
yeah we've all been wrong
we've all been wrong before
Track Name: Eyes Closed
Falling in love means losing some sleep
Don't let it go, it's something to keep
If we knew now what we did then
Would you still wanna be my friend?

It's the scar on your lip
The blink of your eye
You give me something
I don't know why
Tell me again about the time that you fell
Will you ever know me that well?

Look at me
Smoking cigarettes for company
Can't you see
There's a place I go
It's running water with eyes closed
We just float

Once I was born and once I will die
Losing ain't easy, you tell me why
Walk through the door, hold my face in your hands
I don't care what happens then

Look at me
Smoking cigarettes for company
Can't you see
There's a place I go
It's running water with eyes closed
Baby look at me
Smoking cigarettes for company
Can't you see
There's a place I go
It's running water with eyes closed
And we just float
We just float
We just float
We just float
Track Name: Roam
Tengo iPhone pero no tengo casa
All alone
Overthrown
Track Name: January
Stay up and tell me your story
In attic rods shivering cold
Even pace even before me
Something this year feels so old

January calling me
Molasses sweet and slow
Bells and burdens talk to me
Talk to me
Talk to me

And I wanted and I wanted and I wanted to go
Down straight crooked highways for sure
All the good and bad friends
And the sailors I know
And I wanted and I wanted and I wanted to go

Map me the miles you've been treading
Through winter and slumber and salt
Feed me the year you've been shedding
Sleeping on top of a fault

January calling me
Water in my ear
Bells and burdens talk to me
Talk to me
Talk to me

And I wanted and I wanted and I wanted to go
Down straight crooked highways for sure
All the good and bad friends
And the sailors I know
And I wanted and I wanted and I wanted to go
And I wanted and I wanted and I wanted to go
And I wanted and I wanted and I wanted to go
And I wanted and I wanted and I wanted to go
Track Name: Peacefully
Got my feet back on the ground
What I know, we'll all come round
Coming round, coming down
But we'll all come round

Ships are sinking all over town
Standing up on solid ground
Solid ground, solid ground
On solid ground

But if you see my face
Anytime, anyplace
If you see my face then you'll know

Looking up from upside down
My best friend is what I found
What I found, what I found
You're what I found

And if hey one day
You look up and you say
That you miss my face, say hello
When you're far away
Lighten up 'cause my faith
Nothing will erase
I love you so

I tell you now like I told you then
To the moon and back again
You and me, peacefully
We're on the ground
