Track Name: Parallel Place
walking home, I can see my breath
snow white, tripping over myself
music is playing but the lights are dead
cause I don't wanna face the words in my own head

wide awake in the middle of the night
couldn't guess in the space and quiet
there's a poet buried and scared
I don't wanna let these words come up for air

so think a little less and dream you live in a parallel place
maybe there's a you who looks and loves just like you do
so be a little more and stare into that questioning gaze
maybe there's a you who looks and loves just like you do

built a world inside of my head
it's beautiful to play pretend
building a train to get there too
pretending not to know the tracks will crumble soon

write it off and send away
a package to a you that's far away
just a poet buried and scared
I don't wanna let these words come up for air

so think a little less and dream you live in a parallel place
maybe there's a you who looks and loves just like you do
so be a little more and stare into that questioning gaze
maybe there's a you who looks and loves just like you do

so just be happy with what you have
not everybody can say that

so think a little less and dream you live in a parallel place
maybe there's a you who looks and loves just like you do
so be a little more and stare into that questioning gaze
maybe there's a you who looks and loves just like you do
Track Name: Good Since 1987
Mama said don't worry, you'll understand it someday
People are just human, say things they don't mean to say
But mama, I'm different. I think that I love ladies
and I don't think it's recent - been true since you made me.

Is that why they tease me? Think they know how to read me
but I'm more than just the things I love, yeah
Is that why they hate me? Think it's the way you raised me
but I'm glad to be the kind of me I am today

Mama, I'm open, but the family is quiet
Am I a ghost in the lives of the silent?
Well mama, I found her, I think we're getting married
and it's gonna get louder, but I won't let them break me.

Is that why they tease me? Think they know how to read me
but I'm more than just the things I love, yeah
Is that why they hate me? Think it's the way you raised me
but I'm glad to be the kind of me I am today

Cause I was just a black sheep, hiding in the herd
Deep within my own apologies
And they were shouting at me, size me up naively
Give birth to my insecurities
It's not as if it's a choice
but I found my voice

Is that why they tease me? Think they know how to read me
but I'm more than just the things I love, yeah
Is that why they hate me? Think it's the way you raised me
but I'm glad to be the kind of me I am today

Mama, I'm open, I've always been your baby
Of course I have flaws, but I've been good since you made me.
Track Name: Impatiently (love you)
I found a letter in the pocket of my new coat
It was addressed to somebody I didn't know
"Dance with me" they said to somebody
"Dance with me while I..."

Impatiently wish for someone to hold your hand
So gracefully wish for someone to take a chance
and love you

You only get what you think you might deserve
so don't accept anything just for the words
"Talk with me" you'll say to someone new
"Walk with me while I..."

Impatiently wish for someone to hold your hand
So gracefully wish for someone to take a chance
and love you

You've got to exist somewhere inside
I'm checkin my pulse to find you hiding
but all I can feel is stone
so where is that heart of gold you once owned

Impatiently wish for someone to hold your hand
So gracefully wish for someone to take a chance
and love you
