Track Name: Two and Two
This is a crazy love we feel
To us new colors are revealed
On the shores between the flames
Blurry, surreal, forgetting names

It's all impossible and new
All these things that we do
Off balance in a fearless kiss
We hope it always feels like this

We break the rules without repent
We worry not where hours went
We hold hands in beds of trucks
We live by chance, we live by luck

Our secrets glitter sharp like chrome
And we still take the long way home
And though we fly from yesterday
We know we'll never lose the way

It's all impossible and new
All these things that we do
Off balance in a fearless kiss
We hope it always feels like this

For now the rules they don't apply
Yes two and two still make up five
We don't have to measure time
Yes two and two still make up five

The broken world is ours to gain
We play our music loud as pain
Off balance in a fearless kiss
We hope it always feels like this

We know our era it may close
But we'll stay untouched like midnight snow
We know we'll always float untouched above
We'll always fall this deep in love

It's all impossible and new
All these things that we do
Off balance in a fearless kiss
We hope it always feels like this

For now the rules they don't apply
Yes two and two still make up five
We don't have to measure time
Yes two and two still make up five

For now the rules they don't apply
Yes two and two still make up five
We don't have to measure time
Yes two and two still make up five
Two and two still make up five
Two and two still make up five...
Track Name: Innocence
lemonade and little boys
playing war with little green plastic toys

calling names and picking sides
taking double-dog dares, flipping skateboard rides

banged up knees from playing hard
fighting for turf in the recess yard

summer spent licking up ice cream melt
now they're feeling some things they never felt

take my hand let's chase the sun
innocence is on the run
wishing we would grow up fast
now there is no turning back

it changed so fast
that innocence past
it faded so fast
now there is no turning back

take my hand just take my hand
let's chase the sun let's chase the sun
we're wishing we would grow up fast
now there is no turning back

gaggle of girls with Barbie dolls
thinking their legs should be so long

trading stickers, taking sides
unicorns, horses, pony rides

slumber party, sneaky boys
out on the hunt for some newer toys

bedroom closet, bottle spin
flip the light out, baby, and lock them in

take my hand let's chase the sun
innocence is on the run
try so hard to grow up fast but
you know there is no turning back

it changed so fast
that innocence past
it faded so fast
and now there is no turning back

now there is no turning back
now there is no turning back
now there is no turning back
now there is no -

take my hand let's chase the sun
innocence is on the run
try so hard to grow up fast
but now there is no turning back

it changed so fast
that innocence past
it faded so fast
and now there is no turning back

now there is no turning back
now there is no turning back
now there is no turning back
now there is no turning back
Track Name: Someone Like Me
I don't know if she drains you dry or sets you on fire
I don't know how she loves you when you come home tired
If your home is honest, or you live with a liar
But what I can say is - I know a place you can stay

I know it's hard when you see your options closing
And you're made to play a part you never would have chosen
But don't think you're alone or unnoticed
'Cause i'm watching you watching me

and while I'm watching, I'm learning what you need
so take a look, 'cause soon you'll come to see

that you need someone like me
you need someone like me
you need someone like me
you need someone like me

I'll keep it quiet and safe and keep pretending
I'll make believe it's just a flirting game that we've been playing
but if you get too close too long, this game may start ending
and I can't say I won't burst into flame

but while I'm burning, I'm learning what you need
so take a look, 'cause soon you'll come to see

that you need someone like me
you need someone like me
you need someone like me
you need someone like me

hiding in plain sight, biding my time
waiting her out, day by day
til you say you're ready for change
and you realize that you need
someone like-

and while I'm watching, I'm learning what you need
so take a look, cuz soon you'll come to see

that you need someone like me
you need someone like me
you need someone like me
you need someone like me
Track Name: Solid Ground
no way i'll let it slip away too quick
but what you keep on needing I can't seem to give
don't want to know the name or where you go
but while you're out with her I won't stay home alone

not afraid to talk about it
don't know how to get around it
don't know what to do about it
not afraid to talk it through
but still we don't know what to do
I wish I knew

you used to be my solid ground
i couldn't walk around
without your hand on mine
i used to be the air you breathed
but it feels like she has something else you need this time

I love you so I'll let you go

i'll cut out my tongue for you so I don't say
what the stronger part of me wants to say
don't know how we missed it creeping up on us
the drifting iceberg hidden 'til we felt the crush

you used to be my solid ground
i couldn't walk around
without your hand on mine
i used to be the air you breathed
but it feels like she has something else you need this time

I love you but I'll let you go

loneliness and 3am attempts at patience
sleepy late night tiptoe bed negotiations
loneliness and 5am attempts at patience
this time i don't know if we will make it

you used to be my solid ground
i couldn't walk around
without your hand on mine
i used to be the air you breathed
but it feels like she has something else you need this time

I used to be your solid ground
you couldn't walk around
without your hand on mine
i used to be the air you breathed
but it feels like she has something else you need this time

I love you so I let you go
I love you but I let you go
I love you, still I let you go....
Track Name: The Sound
2am, another fight
to try to get to sleep tonight
my neighbors party on the lawn
until the break of dawn

but you know what's louder? the voices in my head
what i did and what he said
sometimes i just can't let go
but this drama's getting old

headphones stream, cellphones ring
and traffic white noise seeps between
underneath our heartbeats pound
it all makes up the sound

the sound, the sound, the sound of being alive, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
the sound, the sound, the sound of being alive

i drive up high above the city night
i feel so small seeing all those lights
and when the speakers start to roar
i feel it and i want more

bass and drums echo off tall red rocks
while airwaves trade a million thoughts
and a million songs light up the sky
it's the sound of being alive

the sound, the sound, the sound of being alive, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
the sound, the sound, the sound of being alive

some say you live just once and then forever gone
some say as long as someone says your name, you still live on
some say you just go round and round and round, and never die
i say if i hear the sound, i know I'm still alive

the sound, the sound, the sound of being alive, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
the sound, the sound, the sound of being alive, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
the sound, the sound, the sound of being alive, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
the sound, the sound, the sound of being alive
