Track Name: anna
so what was it that you said?
i'll never forget the way you meant it..
the wind whispered in my ear,
"i just wish you were here."

the days were dark when you were gone,
you always held the sunlight in your arms -
so darling won't you please just share?
i just wish you were here.

and i was trying to run away,
the most dangerous part is
the first time i tasted summer was on your lips.

don't hesitate and don't be afraid,
whats up with all these dumb rules we've made?
let's just throw em all away.

the days were dark when you were gone,
you always held the sunlight in your arms.
you've got the most beautiful,
well, goddamn, everything.

and i will miss the home that i knew,
and i will miss the light behind you,
but darling, i'll be honest here.
i'm just going to miss you.

so what was it that you said?
i'll never forget the way you meant it.
Track Name: sweeter than the sea
make me coffee make me tea make the bed make love to me,
i'll write you songs tell you stories, maybe even read you some poetry
we will stagger we will crawl but we will never look back at all,
you'll run away, and i'll be fine
dancing in the summer

and someone asked me "did you see her last night? she was on fire."
so i came running with my arms up high,
i won't let you die, no.

braid your hair give and take yeah this can be our first date
scratching skin, sinking in, oh how i could never let you win.
you don't believe in any thing you read my books and laugh and sing
and in the morning we are shy, so it goes, so it goes

and someone asked me "did you see her last night? she was on fire."
so i came running with my arms up high,
i won't let this die, no.

oh this is sweeter than the sea yeah it is everything we need
putting nectar in our tea and saltwater on our teeth,
oh this is sweeter than the sea yeah it is everything we need
putting nectar in our tea and saltwater on our teeth..

make me coffee make me tea smoke some weed, make love to me
i'll write you songs tell you stories, maybe even read you some poetry
we will stagger, we will crawl, but we will never look back at all
you'll run away and i'll be fine dancing in the summertime..

and someone asked me "did you see her last night? she was on fire."
and of course i did, i'm always by her side.
she keeps me alive, ohh.
Track Name: 8 million beats
my darling, don’t you worry about anything
this will be here singing and swimming in your dreams
and i’ll hold you like i hold onto the sea -
she slips through my arms sometimes but always comes back to me
oh oh oh
my darling in 8 million beats you’ll be gone
but in 28 million you will be back in my arms
and i see you in the moon sun and sky
on the mountain tops where i will let my body lie

and if you should find yourself doubting my love
just know i’m yours, i can’t say it enough
and out of all of these things i swear i love-
well it’s always you i’ll be singing of
oh oh

my darling in seven months i’ll still be here
with empty arms and a smile so wide my dear (is how it should go heh)
yeah i’ve seen you always in my day dreams
and i’ve saved your space so when you return you can lay next to me

but if you should find you never want to come back
just send me a line, i’ve got my backpack packed
i will walk to you and bring the new day
hey i’ve always needed to run away!
oh oh

(repeat first verse)

but if you should find somebody new
i’ll be ready and i will not blame you
just follow your heart and i’ll rewrite my dreams
hold you in my hands then send you back to sea
oh oh.
