Track Name: Spent
Maybe you’ve had enough love to last you a thousand years or more
In case I’m not pronouncing my words clearly it’s the same thing it’s always been
Perhaps you’ve been let down
It could be that maybe you’re spent

Well no, not me, got many years left where I’m needing somebody to love, uh oh, uh oh
And pardon me, but you’re the only thing I’ve seen to ever make me feel this way, mhm, mhm
So, girl, you know what’s next
Just show me a bit of what’s spent
Perhaps you’ve been let down
It could be that maybe you’re spent

Even though we only let a little bit of something get between us
I believe in making up for any kind of mess and
All the other things that ever tried to separate us
Oh I know I’ve got to try

Although lately, it’s like the night has come a long, long way for me
Crawl like babies, we do, I know we will get right back up on our feet
Track Name: Take It Lightly
I bet there’s a whole lot to you that I don’t know
I tried my best to know you then, we were so close
Beside you still; defines my life
And all I try just calls my thoughts away

Still strong enough to know I’m not still strong enough to say that I

I bet if I just got to you right now we’d know
If best was tried to show you then whom I loved most
I find you still inspire my mind
And all my drive just calls your heart again

Still strong enough to know I’m not still strong enough to say that I

Am feeling it slightly, now that you know
Or take it lightly, due to my hope
It’s quite constant, it’s quite constant
It’s quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet
Quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet
Track Name: Pumping
How would you know if you stole it?
Even if it’s pumping, even if it’s jumping
Why would it stop if it’s beating?
The rhythm that we move in, the rhythm catches something

Do you know how to hold it?
Mine feels your mind, and breaks if you lie
I kind of like what you’re doing
We’ve got the time, got the desire

How could I know if I just let it go?
Are you alright? Is she alright?
Now I begin as I watch myself, broke
Are you alright? Is she alright?

How could I know if I just let it go?
Are you alright? Is she alright?
Now I begin as I watch myself, broke
Are you alright? Is she alright?

How would you know if you stole it?
Even if it’s pumping, even if it’s jumping
Why would it stop if it’s beating?
The rhythm that we move in, the rhythm catches something

Do you know how to hold it?
Mine feels your mind, and breaks if you lie
I kind of like what you’re doing
We’ve got the time, got the desire
Track Name: Strange Enough
Back of the pages, hiding behind notes, I couldn’t find you
How will I know that you’re gone?
Slap in the face of anything sacred, I tried to take you
Far away from your home

Hiding the reason you wanted to fall, I bet you knew that I would all along
Just so you know, it was good enough for me
Riding the season, we bartered for all, we got to choose where the silence belongs
Just so you know, it was strange enough for me

It’s just so strange, to think of what happened
I’m at a loss, thinking what will happen

Watching their faces, trying to find hope, they couldn’t face it
How will they know how to grow?
A kick in my mouth, I’m spitting up silence, I couldn’t taste it
All of my anger was known

Dividing the fear from the courage to laugh, I needed to speak, only on my behalf
I just wanted to show you love from me
Deciding to free up from burdens and ash, shook up and weak, no well, it didn’t last
I just wanted to show some guts in me

It’s just so strange, to think of what happened
I’m at a loss, thinking what will happen
