THE PARK 00:34
Let's go to the park We've got time to kill We can go get high with the daffodils We ain't got no worries We got nothing going on Tomorrow seems so far away Feels like it's never gonna come
LET'S ROLL 03:22
Let's roll tonight Under the moonlight Ain't got nowhere to be Feeling so young and free Weave thru the promenade The colors feel so bright Something like paradise Let's roll today We've got to get away Blue skies, cool breeze Feeling so young and free What a rare delight Living for the first time Thought I saw heaven in your eyes Roll thru the bright neon lights Roll thru the prime of your life C'mon let's roll
23:09 Military time I'll wait around Check my phone again Text me: "I'm outside" I'm bending down tonight Ease into me Under the dark blue sky Piercing like a hot knife Ease into me Before the rising sun The white hot horizon Because I like you slow and sweet Ease into me Walking home all tight Drinking gin and wine I'll wait around Check my phone in bed Text me: "I'm outside" Just so we don't collide
Made some resolutions but I forgot them Took some good notes but then I lost them I'll bare my teeth for awhile, fake a smile Met a pair of lost eyes at an hold haunt She told me, "Boy, all my life I've been robbed "I've bit my nails by the line my whole life long" I'm just waiting for my call I'm just waiting for the diamond life to fall into my hands from the sky "Hey there sir or madam This is not a dream We've noticed your talent And we'll pay you handsomely" You can take those bad vibes elsewhere I'm following my dreams and I don't care Right now I'm down and out, but not for long
SOPHIE 02:58
Early morning I wake up and rub my eyes Thoughts of darkness interrupt My morning coffee Cuz Sophie told me A big weight would drag me down Thru the ocean til I drown Oh so heavy Oh hey Sophie Won't you please tell me what's happening Won't you please tell me what's going on I stared at my hands Sophie read the tarot cards Upside down seven of swords What does that mean Sophie told me Danger'd enter into my life Funny how we met tonight Mister Charming Cuz this is your world we're living in And we're hanging on your word It's no surprise that you know more than you let on Sophie, no!
I hope that when I die The skies are sunny not so grey What's more—everyone I love Will show up for the big parade There will be laughing and tumbling And someone will have the sense to say "Don't sing no sad songs Something with pastels Organ and sleigh bells Something with pastels" I know I've done people wrong I hope to max the good I've done
Hey my babe Do you remember when we crashed their place We took on different names and oh we laughed As we made out in their pool Such a gas I still see them around If I had my way It would still be yesterday And I wouldn't be the shell of a soul I am today Since that's not the case Could you spare for me tomorrow's love today You and me We can take a joyride if you please Into space or somewhere out of reach Cuz we were meant to realize our dreams Let's do it together I'm a fool With no plans Would you take my helpless hand? We can venture through the night
Maybe time will take its toll, I dunno But I would not risk another day without you We can't knock on heaven's door anymore What's the point, no one's even listening We'll go downtown For a laugh and a rise Look at all the passerbys We're two of them tonight In a fool's paradise What a pleasant surprise Did we meet in a past life? Well, here we are tonight In a fool's paradise
When you ease into me Fits like a puzzle piece When we drift into sleep I slip into reverie We hold our hands out to the sky The moment passing us by A single second, just a wink Will I look at you one day and see Just another daydream Your touch a memory Just another daydream Always fading We share a bed and it feels right Our lives pass through the night A single second, just a wink Will I look at you one night and see
It takes strength to be tender It takes love to be free So when chance comes knocking at your window Open up the doors, don't leave her waiting
