Track Name: intro
?!
Track Name: life's short and I don't want to waste mine
life's full of moments too mundane
to replay in our heads
but that doesn't mean we should throw
them away
cuz right here with you
I'm happier than I've ever known
and I wouldn't trade it for anything
even though I know
there's probably better things to do
I'm trying to stop and take in the view
of this beautiful life I've got

I'm not lazy I'm just alternatively motivated
I've only got so much time and I don't want to waste it
so I'll do the things that make me happiest
so I can know
I'm living the best life I can right now
even though I know
there's more productive things to do
I'm trying to stop and take in the view
of this beautiful life I've got

I've got things to do
and places to be
people to love who love me
I'm sorry I've got my priorities straight
I'm sorry but I'm not gonna wait
to live this beautiful life I've got
this beautiful life I've got
this beautiful life I've got
Track Name: i lov u
I like that we can just go up to your room and play pokémon
and I like that late at night you send me little bits of what you’re workin on
whether it’s a new song that you’ve just started, another chapter or a work of art I just love being a part of it, of your routine
I guess what I mean is
I love you, you (x2)
I like how you’re always there, you always cheer me up, make me happy
and I like when you send me stuff just because it reminds you of me
whether its your bright smile or the light of your eyes, the sound of your voice on the phone at night I just love spending my time with ya, love you bein with me
I guess what I mean is
I love you, you (x4)
Track Name: hello happy
Don't know what I'm doing
No one else does either so why do I feel
Inadequate
Life is changing how it's moving
I can't keep up with it
But in this confusion
Comes a new diffusion
of the pain built up in me
It's easier to bear
And a happy feeling's coming on
I can't recognize exactly from where
It began
But relief is in my heart

Hello happy
It's been a while
Since I last saw you
Hello happy
Have you missed me
I've missed you too

Heal my heavy heart
Heal
Heal my heavy heart
Heal
Track Name: getting by
Wow
I suck
At a lot of stuff
And that's okay because you can't do everything
A lot of things are tough

I can't draw anymore
And I can't play guitar
I can't control my feelings well
Or at least not so far
I can't write or act or do so many things I try
But I'm good at being me
And I'm good at getting by

I can't rhyme when I write these stupid songs
I can't get my thoughts out without going on too long
I wish that I could cook or build or paint or dance or sing
I wish that maybe one day I'll amount to anything

I can't draw anymore
And I can't play guitar
I can't control my feelings well
Or at least not so far
I can't write or act or do so many things I try
But I'm learning it's okay
And I'm learning to get by

I do have a few skills I can do math pretty well
Even though I know it might be kind of hard to tell and
I'm good at being there whenever you are feeling blue
And I'm good at giving hugs
And I'm good at loving you
I may not be gifted with neat capabilities
But I'm still a good person without all that expertise

I may not draw anymore
And I suck at the guitar
My feelings are out of control
From what I've felt so far
I can't do a lot of things but
There's many things I'll try
I may not succeed at it all
But I'll grow and be alright
I may not succeed at it all
But I'll grow and I'll get by
Track Name: interzood
like interlude but its a kazoo so its interZOOd im not funny im sorry have this lil 15 sec break
Track Name: cosmic paradise (feat. Jules)
Would you fly away with me
To Kepler 452-b
Oh
I'm sick of reality
A new world's what I need to see
So
Let's go today
To a planet far away
Pack your bags, say your goodbyes
'Cause we're headed for the skies
Up in the stars
You and I
In cosmic paradise

NASA says they're all the rage
New planets have taken the stage
Ooo
Just have to find the ones that are inhabitable
Must be compatible
With me and you
So let's go today
Find a place for us to stay
Safe from harm and our old lives
They'll never find us once we arrive
Out in space
You and I
In cosmic paradise

Take my hand and hold it tight
We'll fly this space ship through the night
We're going at the speed of light but
Don't look back we'll be alright
Ooo

So let's go today
Start our lives over far away
There's not much else that we can do
But it's ok now that I'm with you
So whatcha say
You and I
In cosmic paradise
Track Name: magnificent mess
Of all of the possible arrangements of molecules I find yours the most magnificent
Of all of the infinite displays of brilliance I find you the most magnificent
All the explosions and collisions in space
The universe perfectly came to this place where
You and I can be together here
And for that I'm so grateful my dear
I'm not sure how long I've been wishing on that star
I'm not saying we're meant to be but I'm happy that we are
In this magnificent mess of ours

Of all of the possible arrangements of molecules I find yours the most magnificent
Of all of the infinite displays of brilliance I find you the most magnificent
All the events that have led up to right now
Time slowly made its to kindly allow
You and I to be together here
And for that I'm so grateful my dear
I'm not sure how long I've been wishing on that star
I'm not saying we're meant to be but I'm happy that we are
In this magnificent mess of ours

You and I here together oooo
And I am sure that I love you
Who can know if this was the plan of the stars
I can't say if we are meant to be but I'm happy that we are
In this magnificent mess of ours
Track Name: lullaby
close your eyes and rest your head
shut off your mind and go to bed
don't think anymore
just picture that sandy shore
let the waves was away your worry
(let the waves rock you to sleep)
you're okay, don't be in such a hurry
(you're okay don't make a peep)
you're okay
you'll be okay in the morning
you're okay
you'll be okay in the morning
Track Name: a goodbye song
I guess this is it
time to walk out the door
did you forget
this is what we've waited for
I know it doesn't
feel right anymore it's an
uneasy feelin
pretty hard to ignore but
I'll see you soon

I grab on too tight once I get a hold
I'm way to young to be feelin old
I'm gonna miss you when we leave this little town
I know I never say it enough
but you will always have my love
I hope we meet again later down the road

all I see is flashbacks to when it all began
and you were always there for me to hold my hand
and I know it'll never be the same
and I know you won't remember my name

the sun is setting down on this fateful day
I know it's been a long one but I've got to say
should you ever need me I will always find a way
to get back to you

I grab on too tight once I get a hold
I'm way to young to be feelin old
I'm gonna miss you when we leave this little town
I know I never say it enough
but you will always have my love
I hope we meet again later down the road
