Track Name: Ski Mantra
Girl, I was hoping this could be something
Girl, I was holding your hands full of gold rings
People keep changing, but let’s not change anything
Girl, let’s not change anything

I know I move slowly
When you ask me what it means baby I don’t understand me
Just wrap yourself around me

Saved the words just for you, more than words could ever do
I’ll do anything for you, baby I promise to try
Say the words they were true, more than words could ever do
I’ll do anything for you, promise I will try

People keep changing, but let’s not change anything
Girl, let’s not change anything

I know I move slowly
When you ask me what it means baby I don’t understand me
Just wrap your arms around me

In recovery at least some of me feels like I’m never there
Was it lack of sleep why I never dream?
Baby I promise to try

Saved the words just for you, more than words could ever do
I’ll do anything for you, baby I promise to try
Say the words they were true, more than words could ever do
I’ll do, I’ll do anything for you, promise I will try

Say the words just for you, but more than words could ever do
I’ll do anything for you, I promise I will try

Saved the words just for you, more than words could ever do
I’ll do anything for you, baby I promise to try
Say the words they were true, more than words could ever do
I’ll do anything for you, I promise I will try
Saved the words just for you, more than words could ever do
I’ll do, I’ll do anything for you, promise I will try
Track Name: We Go Faster
We don’t need a reason
Calling all your best friends
Tell me what you’re thinking now
I can keep a secret

Well I don’t know this for much
And I’m trying not to think too much
But it feels like I could fall
And you hold me up with the right words

I saw you walking past
I sensed it in the dark
I’m nervous and I’m wound up tightly
Bridge lit your silhouette
Lace dress and flower hair
Is it too much if I wave goodbye

We don’t need a reason
Calling all your best friends
Tell me what you’re thinking now
I can keep a secret

Two glasses in my hand
Too hard to understand
Can we hold it up in the light please?
Two cars parked at the dock
Hearts and fingers crossed
Now I’m sliding back in the car seat

Oh I saw you walking past
I sensed it in the dark
I’m nervous and I’m wound up tightly
Bridge lit your silhouette
Lace dress and flower hair
Is it too much if I wave goodbye

We don’t need a reason
Calling all your best friends
Tell me what you’re thinking now
I can keep a secret

Pack up your tears
Forget the taste of salt in your mouth
I heard what you said
But you need to shout
With both windows down
We go faster

We don’t need a reason
A car pulls up you’re the first to arrive.
Tell me what you’re thinking
I can keep a secret
We don’t need a reason
Calling all your best friends
Tell me why tell me why
I can keep a secret
Track Name: Winter
Drove my car into the night
Picking songs we’re quite alike
Smoke it starts to sting our eyes
You took a step, kicked the wine
The moon is crooked on the side
Lantern ripped we built a fire
Our arms are at our sides
But I think your hand might fit in mine

My heart it races
When I think about her
My heart it races

It races when I think about her
It races and this is good
It races when I think about her
It races, it races

Nobody, nobody here besides us
Nobody

The cold it seeps in through our shoes
The time I have goes fast with you
Kick the cinders to the stream
I lost the winter in a dream
And we could stay out until the summer finds us
And we could stay out nobody here besides us

My heart it races
When I think about her
My heart it races

It races when I think about her
I get the feeling that this is good
It races when I think about her
I get the feeling, I get the feeling

It races when I think about her
It races and this is good
It races when I think about her
It races, it races

We could stay out until the summer finds us, we could stay out
We could stay out until the summer finds us, nobody here besides us
We could stay out until the summer finds us, we could stay out we could stay out
We could stay out until the summer finds us, nobody here besides us
Track Name: Don't Forget
I tell myself that you were thinking just the same as us
No one like to be on their own for all the time at once
So tell me now what you were thinking no one ever does
I don’t like to be on my own

Oh, it’s so secret has no one ever seen this place
I don’t think I’d know if I’m dreaming
Everything would look the same

You go tearing off and yet we feel so close
We could not have known
As time goes it’ll be forever on my mind so
We won’t let it go
We won’t be alone

Two days in airplanes thinking of the two of us
I don’t like to be on my own, no one ever does
I always remember you your mother’s quiet home
Too afraid to use the words I learned I should have though

Oh, it’s so secret has no one ever felt this way
I don’t think I’d know if I’m dreaming

You go tearing off and yet we feel so close
We could not have known
As time goes it’ll be forever on my mind so
We won’t let it go
You go tearing off ahead and then we follow
We could not have known
As time goes it’ll be forever on my mind so
We won’t let it go

Oh there you go only two days
And you see things in a new way
Track Name: Weekend
I want it to be real love
I could be all you need, you tell me
You tell me how you feel love
Why don’t you call me, Why don’t you

Oh will this week end
Been working while we can
Working all we can
Oh can I see you
I reason that I can
That it can be

I do all I do
Cos I just want a real love
I do I do
I just want to feel love
Tell me is it real love

I want you to be real love
This could be all I need, so you tell me
You tell me if you feel this love
Why did you call me, Why did you
Well it’s the week end
Been talking while we can
Talking while we can
Is it so easy?
I reason that it can and that it can be

I do all I do
Cos I just want a real love
I do I do
I just want to feel love
Tell me is it real love

You were right
You were right about us
You were right
You were right about everything you said
I should have listened
Instead there was that voice in my head
I couldn’t quite pronounce things the way you did
I should have called you to check
Oh you were right about everything
You were right about everything

I do all I do
Cos I just want a real love
I do I do
I just want to feel love
Tell me is it real love
