Salt & Shine

Where I go, hope I go so easily

No ifs or ands, no paper man stopping my journey 

The winds, yes the winds they carry me

All these places warm embraces interlace so easily

 

Oooh, Oooh

 

A dream, oh a dream it came to me

Looking up to starry heights, solar epiphany

The tides, yes the tides they rise on key

Shaking me with distant hands

We don’t need no ampersand 

 

Take this grey and turn it into something like a better shade 

 

Evening skies they turn clockwise into the night (Oooh)

Breathe it in and let it out, I’m talking melt down (Oooh)

Swim inside phosphorescent highs

Keep your eyes on the edelweiss 

Salt and shine

 

Oooh, Oooh

 

The breeze and the trees and curry leaves

Take it in were cruising through an island in the sea

Please let me be a guest in the reef

What a sense of harmony

 

I’ll take this change and use it in a better way 

 

Evening skies they turn clockwise into the night (Oooh)

Breathe it in and let it out, I’m talking melt down (Oooh)

Swim inside phosphorescent highs

Keep your eyes on the edelweiss 

Salt and shine

 

Oooh, Oooh 

Lemonade

Starlight keeps me awake when I’m feeling my fate slipping with the days 

Inhale thoughts of a muse and does my attitude fuel you like butane

I won’t wait to find a better gage

Dissipate to another place

 

Do you try to see things the way that they are

Walk through the bamboo to get to the way it could be 

 

Giving a hundred percent but it doesn’t make a dent in terms of lemonade

Feeling if I could write about mistakes in my life I’d lose the barricades 

From the days I chose to run away 

Open gate to the sunny rays 

 

Do you try to see things the way that they are

Walk through the bamboo to get to the way it could be 

 

Do I feel something

Oh lord, it cannot be 

Try to make sense of the places I’ve been 

And will go 

 

Do you try to see things the way that they are

Walk through the bamboo to get to the way it could be 

 

Jade

Every time I try to see the rights 

Makes me sigh 

I’m left asking myself why did I stay here all night 

 

When I feel darkness slip into my heels

I find relief through slender strings and sweet nothings

That’s right, all night, all night 

 

Save the jade and meet me at the bay

I cave to your banana eyes 

It should be no surprise 

And if I was to stay would you lay under the rain

Tell me you, you’re a gem I couldn’t lose 

 

Loooose, loooose 

 

Said goodbye to lots of people in my life 

State of mind unclear but all those dreams must mean something

 

Save the jade and meet me at the bay

I cave to your banana eyes 

It should be no surprise 

And if I was to stay would you lay under the rain

Tell me you, you’re a gem I couldn’t lose 

 

Cannot lose, cannot lose, cannot lose, cannot lose 

 

Bell Bottoms & Cigarettes

Waiting for the moon to rise he settles down with a giant sigh 

One foot in and one foot out

Cannot shake the everlasting doubt

 

Try to see the light and feel its rays 

While dragon flies and cherry pies fill your brain 

The expired milk remains 

 

Life’s been on repeat

Did you feel it in your feet 

As the wind began to creak your withered soul 

Could you find another way 

To keep those feelings at bay 

With the heart of your folly taking you home to nothing but stones

 

Bell bottoms and cigarettes 

Only things that seem to have an effect

Could she ask you if it’s right

Would she say it only in the night 

 

Only wish to find what will remain 

But key lime pie and summertime fill your brain

It expired all the same 

 

Life’s been on repeat

Did you feel it in your feet 

As the wind began to creak your withered soul 

Could you find another way 

To keep those feelings at bay 

With the heart of your folly taking you home 

 

To nothing but bluebirds wait

To take their place 

Oooo, oooo

 

Life’s been on repeat 

Did you feel it in your feet 

As the wind began to creak your withered soul 

A Song For Bill

It takes a wanted man to sing a worried song

But I can’t afford to keep you on my arm 

I don’t play by the rules, test me twice

You’ll find out that a mamba strikes at night 

 

Put your troubles down, talk it out 

Time is a luxury that I can’t count on

Say it twice, we don’t play nice

Give me something to find the sweet delights 

 

If you’re spinning down, I’m around 

Slip out the back door without a sound

Reconsider, they heard a slither 

Come from the living room Monday night 

 

Well loving you was hard to do 

You feel like a fraction of written reviews 

When I wanted to go to the moon

I never imagined you wanted to be there too 

You wanted to be there too 

 

Lavender Champagne 

It’s the feeling on a cold sunny day 

Get to reeling, empty the ashtray 

I’ve been doing fine 

Don’t ask me to tell you about all my time 

 

Misbelieving the saying people change

Find a reason, go against the grain 

Lost an ocean of hope that was much bigger than us 

 

You tell me count to three

Well, it just ain’t that easy 

Not asking to be queen

Moving on to finer things

 

Turn of season, lavender champagne

Need to ease in, start to turn the page 

Find a notion of 

Love that makes you feel like enough 

 

You tell me count to three

Well, it just ain’t that easy 

Not asking to be queen

Moving on to finer things

 

Finer things, finer things, finer things, finer things 

 

Looking For Love 

I’ve been looking for love in all the wrong places

Wanting to say it found me

Been a bit of a change since the last time I came 

Oh, what a day to come clean 

To something I said on caffeine

 

Oh, why would I come clean 

Surprise your eyes are glowing green

 

Do you want to go for a drive

Into the sun setting in the sky

 

Looking away, I see the traces 

Of a new holiday with different faces 

It’s the clear moon calling you to reboot 

Giving you an absolute take five, take five 

 

Do you want to go for a drive

Into the sun setting in the sky

‘Cause all I feel is nothing that ain’t real

Making me feel alive (alive, alive)

 

If you want to, I can help you remove 

All the things that weigh you down into the night 

Include exploration redo lost and found of attitude 

It feels nice 

 

Call My Name 

We wasted days in clouds and haze till the evening

A waiting game and it seems so strange just floating 

All these changes I can’t help but feel 

Like a paper crane in the Sunday rain, oh dear

 

The window pane’s giving me strange visions 

Like me and you all afternoon in the tea room 

You’re taking space I thought that I would need 

But I’d give it up for just one cup of tea 

 

Oooo, Oooo

 

Time and space started to erase the visions

Try to keep it up with cigarette puffs for two 

The ebb and flow or so it goes, it’s the truth 

‘Cause you call my name and I don’t feel the same about you 

 

Oooo, Oooo 

 

Call my name I don’t feel the same vision 

 

True To The Ruse

Sunny again but today I’m wishing for rain

To wash it all away, straight Noah

Don’t hesitate

‘Cause I can’t bearing this memorabilia as of late 

 

Do, do you want me to change

Into who, who should I be today

You know I tried to keep it light when the feelings weren’t right

Water moves side to side and then it collides with the skies

I’m bruised and tattooed

 

Float with the days, a sobering haze hits my eyes 

If I just knew I swear I would be true to the ruse

‘Cause I lost the feeling of holding that finger up to you

 

 

Do, do you want me to change

Into who, who should I be today

You know I tried to keep it light when the feelings weren’t right

Water moves side to side and then it collides with the skies (with the skies)

I’m bruised and tattooed
