Track Name: Even So
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
Track Name: Crush
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
Track Name: High Expectations
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
Track Name: Our Day Will Come
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
Track Name: Desperado
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
