Even So 04:59
Even So Growing up the sky was always blue And I was always blue And green with envy of the girls who knew the secret I was always meant for a different scene Another take, this couldn’t be the main event I was sent here by divine mistake But even so, it’s good to know That there must be poetry in the San Fernando Valley x 2 Dry wind Brittle souls Hot sun never cold Growing up the air was always dry and my heart was always dry and yearning for acceptance Like the story of the duck growing up he had no luck But he knew he needed love without repentance But even so, it’s good to know That there must be poetry in the San Fernando Valley x 2 Dry wind Brittle souls Hot sun never cold Blond Blue Brown Dry Brittle words that question why or just impressions and awareness of a world outside my own outside my own outside my own That I can never own Dry wind Brittle souls Hot sun never cold

Crush 05:41
Ah, crush, ah I see ya blowin' me a kiss It doesn't take a scientist To understand what's going on, baby If you see something in my eye Let's not over analyze Don't go too deep with it, baby (baby) So let it be what it'll be Don't make a fuss and get crazy over you and me Here's what I'll do I'll play loose Not like we have a date with destiny It's just a little crush (crush) Not like I faint every time we touch It's just some little thing (crush) Not like everything I do depends on you Sha-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la It's raising my adrenaline You're banging on a heart of tin Please don't make too much of it, baby (baby) You say the word "forevermore" That's not what I'm looking for All I can commit to is "maybe" (maybe) So let it be what it'll be Don't make a fuss and get crazy over you and me (crazy over you and me) Here's what I'll do I'll pay loose Not like we have a date with destiny It's just a little crush (crush) Not like I faint every time we touch It's just some little thing (crush) Not like everything I do depends on you Sha-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la Vanilla skies (vanilla skies) White picket fences in your eyes A vision of you and me

Got me some high expectations Not a lot of natural talent So I stumble along Trying hard not to lose my balance And I've run into so many walls I got me a mansion And I'm living here all by myself Well that's my intention what am I doing this for x 2 I've never seen anything through I don't even know what it takes Falling down in love with you Could be my biggest mistake What if you find out I'm boring What if I don't tell the truth What if you keep on exploring And finally, come up with the proof What am I doing this for x 2 Sometimes the words fit the voice No one else could sing that song What if we're given no choice And that's the way you and I belong I didn't want to believe it but I turn And you're still at my side I ask, but you just won't leave And now I've got nowhere to hide What am I doing this for x 2 Got me some high expectations Not a lot of natural talent So I stumble along Trying hard not to lose my balance I've never seen anything through I don't even know what it takes Falling down in love with you Could be my biggest mistake What am I doing this for x 2 I must be crazy

Our day will come (our day will come) And we'll have everything We'll share the joy (we'll share the joy) Falling in love can bring No one can tell me that I'm too young to know I love you so And you love me Our day will come If we just wait a while No tears for us (no tears for us) Think love and wear a smile Our dreams have magic because we'll always stay in love this way Our day will come

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses You been out ridin' fences for so long now Oh, you're a hard one I know that you got your reasons These things that are pleasin' you Can hurt you somehow Don't you draw the Queen of Diamonds, boy She'll beat you if she's able You know the Queen of Hearts is always your best bet Now, it seems to me some fine things Have been laid upon your table, But you only want the ones that you can't get Desperado, oh, you ain't gettin' no younger Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home And freedom, oh freedom, well that's just some people talkin' Your prison is walking through this world all alone Don't your feet get cold in the winter time? The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine It's hard to tell the night time from the day You're losin' all your highs and lows; Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away? Desperado, why don't you come to your senses? Come down from your fences; open the gate It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you You better let somebody love you before it's too late
