Track Name: Leaving Kokiri Forest
In the old hotel there is door
Where that leads I cannot be too sure
But I will take my road over yours
Up the elevator shaft, who am I calling?
Business man with his head in the sand
I got to keep both my feet flat on the ground

Drop me a line the next time that your in town
Let me know that you arrive safe and sound
The minute you touch down
Cherish these moments cause you know that they won't last
What once was the future
Quickly becomes the past

I remember the days when I didn't care at all
Out on the playground I would scratch my knees when I fall
But now I'm spread, sprawled out amongst these things
Constantly tied up in all of my personal strings

Well I just don't fit in
I'm just too damn big
For this tiny world
And your my girl
Oh, maybe baby your my Queen
You just make-believe
She's just eighteen
I believe in the American dream

I'm not an alcoholic
I just like to drink a lot
I'm not a hypochondriac
I just get sick a lot
I'm not your role model
Not someone you should follow

I remember the days when I didn't care at all
Out on the playground I would scratch my knees when I fall
But now I'm spread, sprawled out amongst these things
Constantly tied up in all of my personal strings

Well I just don't fit in
I'm just too damn big
For this tiny world
And your my girl
Oh, maybe baby your my Queen
You just make-believe
She's just eighteen
I believe in the American dream
Track Name: Brainwaves
Since you shifted eyes at me
I have never been the same
You always echo through my brain
Even though I beat it up
I'd just like to heat it up
This is just another song about you
I can't help myself
I'm going crazy, I need your help

And I feel
Like I've fallen in and out
Of some deal
I made with myself but didn't work out
Is this real?
Nothing this good ever happens to me
So surreal
Because you mean everything to me

So why don't you stay just a little bit longer
We could do anything
I don't really care cause your right here beside me
You don't know the joy it brings

If I had a choice
Of being anywhere in the world
And sitting with you
Well it's a little obvious what I'd do
Cause it ain't just time to time
Everything reminds me of you
And these brainwaves I see are nothing to be afraid of
It's what I'm made of

And I feel
Like I've fallen in and out
Of some deal
I made with myself but didn't work out
Is this real?
Nothing this good ever happens to me
So surreal
Because you mean everything to me

So why don't you stay just a little bit longer
We could do anything
I don't really care cause your right here beside me
You don't know the joy it brings

I couldn't say a word
I've never been more comfortable in my life
So collect your knives
Cause I don't mind
If you just tell me that you'll never go
I'll take you up there where anything goes
I know what you know
It's flowing through me
Track Name: Stay Frosty
I didn't mean to be so bold
But sometimes I just don't do what I am told
I hear the cars drift through the middle of the street
But I don't lift my head up until our eyes can meet

Frosty nights I've spent sitting on my own
I drain the sunlight down staring at the phone
Your the only thing that seems to last
A renewable energy powered by the memories of our past

There's nothing else I need or I could ever say
You are the one to blame for me ending up this way
Dumb-struck and stupid, not thinking straight
When will I see you again cause I can hardly wait?
Track Name: Frogs Are Always Cool
I guess I'm out of my depth
It's something I just don't get
How I regret watching you
Do something I just can't do
Just because I play the guitar
That won't get me very far
But what else could I do
I'm not one to pick and choose

As for your opinion I've already thrown it away
People will either love it or hate it
Or think that it's okay

Just because I cannot breathe underwater
Doesn't mean I'd be any softer than the average me
Just so I can fit
(but I, fit but I, fit but I don't)

I don't believe it's untrue
Frogs are always cool

You say my music is bad
But that just ain't in my head
I can say I positively don't want to hear your negativity
So you can shut your mind
You say my music is good
I don't believe it's true
I guess there's no pleasing me
I'm quite complex you see

As for your opinion I've already thrown it away
People will either love it or hate it
Or think that it's okay

Just because I cannot breathe underwater
Doesn't mean I'd be any softer than the average me
Just so I can fit
(But I don't)

I don't believe it's untrue
Frogs are always cool
Track Name: Forevermore
Your hair was long when we first met
It was light and brown when we first met
And I didn't think I could go on if you'd never stay with me
And I don't think I could go on if you don't stay with me
We could be
Happy forever
These happy endings are solemn-seen with this answer

I loved her more than I could ever know
I dreamed her faster than the speed of light or love
And I still love her just like I had done before
And I still dream her probably more than I'd ever done before
Forevermore

Your eyes were blue when we first met
I was dazed and confused when we first met

And I didn't think I could go on if you wouldn't be with me
And I don't think I could go on if you don't stay with me
We could be
Happy forever
These happy endings are solemn-seen with this answer

I loved her more than I could ever know
I dreamed her faster than the speed of light or love
And I still love her just like I had done before
And I still dream her probably more than I'd ever done before
Forevermore
Track Name: Beautiful
(Your beautiful)
And no one else will ever do
(Your beautiful)
That's what I think of you
(Your beautiful)
The clothes you wear, the colour of your skin
(Your beautiful)
Complete infatuation

Ain't this a nice view of the city
I didn't mean to take your pity

And here it goes down to the water's ocean
Clear as I know until we're just a memory
Your beautiful and that's all that matters to me
I will remember you always, forever like this

(Your beautiful)
And no one else will ever do
(Your beautiful)
That's what I think of you
(Your beautiful)
Your eyes are as blue as the sea...as blue as me
(Your beautiful)
They shine beautifully

Ain't this a nice view of the city
I didn't mean to take your pity
Ain't this a nice view of the town
I never want to bring you down

And here it goes down to the water's ocean
Clear as I know until we're just a memory
Your beautiful and that's all that matters to me
I will remember you always, forever like this

And here it goes down to the water's ocean
Clear as I know until we're just a memory
Your beautiful but that fades like photographs
I will remember you always, forever like this

Your beautiful
(And I love you)
Track Name: Tunnels
The witches spell that was cast between us
It said...your house can never be next to mine
Everyone's trying to keep us apart
Trying to keep me away from your kind

If I could see your window through my trees
We could talk right through the afternoon
And I would get right to work
I would build a tunnel first
That goes from my room to your room

I would build a tunnel between us
And I would crawl through every night
Just so I could lay beside you honey
So I know your gonna be alright

We wouldn't have to tell anybody
You'd keep me sane by passing me by
It could be our little secret
What would hurt one more white lie?

I could look out from the front of my drive
I could see as far as the eye could see
But I couldn't see your house
I could barely move my mouth
But if I could, I would

I would build a tunnel between us
And I would crawl through every night
Just so I could lay beside you darlin'
So I know your gonna be alright

I would build a tunnel between us
I would crawl through every night
Just so I could lay beside you honey
So I know your gonna be alright
So I know your gonna be alright
So I know your gonna be alright
So I know your gonna be alright
