Track Name: In Bloom
"touch, touch, touch
it's never too much
hush, hush, hush
there is no rush

I'm in bloom
underneath you

sink, sink down
down into me
floating out, out to sea

I'm in bloom
underneath you

don't be afraid
to draw your anchor
sink it down, down into me
don't be afraid to throw your anchor
sink it down, down into me

it's your love

I'm in bloom
underneath you"
Track Name: Never Felt So Lonely
"when I held you in my arms
and we finally said goodbye
you were shaking with the tears
you promised you wouldn't cry

and for the first time, I felt angry
at the path that had been set for me
if only I could live a quiet life
then I would follow you there and be at your side

Big, big dreams never felt so lonely
Big, big dreams never felt so lonely

I wanna do your laundry, I wanna wipe the sleep from your eyes
I want us to get boring
I wanna be annoyed with you sometimes
and then I think about your last name, and I wonder how it'd sound next to mine
these are all the wonderful things that I've chosen to sacrafice

Big, big dreams never felt so lonely
Big, big dreams never felt so lonely
til you became one for me

Now I mourn you with the words that I promised I wouldn't say
you're the only dream I know that I wish I could wish away

Big, big dreams never felt so lonely
Big, big dreams never felt so lonely
til you became one for me"
Track Name: Real Thing
"look into your eyes and I'm mystified
look into your heart and I realize

you've got so much love inside, and you're not afraid of mine
tell me there's no reason why we can't get it right this time

Cause I know you're the real thing, I know
Cause I've never been scared before
and I never needed anyone more

Let's pass the time like it's standing still
stand with my baby, I know you will
Take me to the place inside
all the ways you've tried to hide
let them fall away tonight. we can get it right this time

Cause I know you're the real thing, I know
Cause I've never been scared before
and I never needed anyone more

No I never took the time to see so much
never knew a love that I could trust
never let my heart need, won't you take me heart please
No, I never let my heart need, won't you take me heart please

Cause I know you're the real thing, I know
Cause I've never been scared before
and I never needed anyone more
Track Name: Same Side Now
"in your gaze, I can untangle all the troubles of the past
face to face from every angle, still we hold each other fast
throw away the things that don't belong
in this space we make for love
I'm not afraid to be strong, strong enough for both of us

We're on the same side baby, on the same side now
we're on the same side now
Yeah we're on the same side baby, on the same side now
we're on the same side now

Each new day illuminates on the landscape of our love
I'm amazed at what we can create, just between the two of us
throw away the things that don't belong
in this space we make for love
I'm not afraid to see you be strong, strong enough for both of us

We're on the same side baby, on the same side now
we're on the same side now
Yeah we're on the same side baby, on the same side now
we're on the same side now
There's no loss and gain, there's no game to play
we're on the same side now
Yeah we're on the same side baby, on the same side now
we're on the same side now

One path when we are together,
one will when we are apart
One dream on the road to forever
One journey, one heart

We're on the same side baby, on the same side now
we're on the same side now
Yeah we're on the same side baby, on the same side now
we're on the same side now
There's no loss and gain, there's no game to play
we're on the same side now
Yeah we're on the same side baby, on the same side now
we're on the same side now"
Track Name: Twenty First Century Man
"I don't care about where you been
it's the 21st century man
don't ask about my body count or you're gonna feel real sad
just a face in a profile picture
he's a vegan and he likes to read scripture
not fit for a girl like me, but there's plenty of fish in the sea, I need a

It's the 21st century
I need a 21st century man
It's the 21st century
I need a 21st century man

I don't care about your alma mater
it's the 21st century man
we've all got debt and no job offer
so put another drink in my hand
I just wanna feel something other
than the confusion in my head
I'm too scared of a fucked up future
so take me home and lay me down instead

It's the 21st century
I need a 21st century man
It's the 21st century
I need a 21st century man
don't think about the future
don't dream about the past

Tell me that you're scared like me
tell me that you're just trying to keep your head from exploding
tell me that you're scared like me
tell me you don't wanna go home but you've got nowhere else to go
tell me that you're scared like me
tell me you've got nothing to offer, you just wanna get off
and tell me that you're scared like me
tell me that you're scared like me

It's the 21st century
I need a 21st century man
It's the 21st century
I need a 21st century man
don't think about the future
don't dream about the past"
