Track Name: Ottawa
Unsure lady if there's room for you and I
You're pouring your concrete
And it's taking time for it to dry
Your voice is restful like a lullaby
But here in the city
I'm likely to forget to toss it to the wind

We could be the kings until the cut us down
We could live the dream
Until we come around

And I see the edge of a thousand miles
You’re pouring your concrete
Don't think you'll see my face again

I found a way I think you'll like
I believed I was polished rough around the edges
And dancing in your heart

We could be the kings until the cut us down
We could live the dream
Until we come around
I found a way I think you'll like
I believed I was polished rough around the edges
And dancing in your heart

We could be the kings until the cut us down
We could live the dream
Until we come around
I found a way I think you'll like
I believed I was polished rough around the edges
And dancing in your heart

A little rough around the edges
Polished
A little rough around the edges
Track Name: Day Dreams
I simply run, simply run I don't wanna stay
Count all my dreams like I am in the summary
Rain down on your town, on your town where it can begin
Follow my dream like a dream ought to be followed yeah

You’re not my day dream
You’re not my savior
You’re not my guardian
You’re my get up and go
I've got you figured
Nobody else does

I simply run, simply run, I don't wanna stay
Found all my dreams while outside in the summer rain
Rain down in your town on your town where we can begin
Count on my dreams like a dream ought to be followed yeah

You’re not my day dream
You’re not my savior
You’re not my guardian
You’re my get up and go
I've got you figured
Nobody else does

You’re not my day dream
You’re not my savior
You’re not my guardian
You’re my get up and go
I've got you figured
Nobody else does

Can I be free yet?
Can I be free yet?
Pushing me away for awhile

Track Name: Red Light District
I can see your lights on
I can feel the mouth of a beast
Oh it always says my name wrong
Old machines break down in the middle of the road
While it fights to keep its lights on

Oh when you feel like this
Strung along like this
You’re on the hill tops tonight
You’re in the Red Light District
Don't you be low
It's my body and soul
My body and soul
Don’t you let go

She is a woman
And a woman won't bring my spirits down
No, till there's no one else around

Oh and where is a woman?
When you need one
When you feel the most alone
When you feel the most alone

I could be your lover
Hold me till the next one at least
Love me when the rain comes
Old beliefs break down in the middle of the road
I think you turned the lights on

Oh when you feel like this
Strung along like this
You’re on the hill tops tonight
You’re in the Red Light District
Don't you be low
It's my body and soul
My body and soul
Don’t you let go

She is a woman
And a woman won't bring my spirits down
No, till there's no one else around

Oh and where is a woman
When you need one
When you feel the most alone
When you feel the most alone
Track Name: Stranger
I'd like to get out of town 
The summers calling out oh what are we waiting for?  
With the city lights coming out slow
It's the feeling that no other soul will ever know, will never know

Is it wrong to be a stranger on the street corner tonight?
Hanging over like a rain cloud to feel alive

Having trouble keeping secrets to myself
Speak it like a question cause I can't find the words  
Now I'm running like it’s crazy but it's true  
If I'm gonna have the closing word
I'll surrender all the apologies I heard

Is it wrong to be a stranger on the street corner tonight?
Hanging over like a rain cloud to feel alive
Is it wrong to be a stranger on the street corner tonight?
Hanging over like a rain cloud to feel alive

On the street corner tonight
To feel alive
Is it wrong to be a stranger on the street corner tonight?
Hanging over like a rain cloud to feel alive
To feel alive
Track Name: By The Firelight
You can get what you want maybe you can have it all
Oh with moves like a gypsy you put a spell on the dance floor
It's no longer a question cause we aren't learning a lesson
We're never really listening  
Can we continue roll play?
No dancing in dismay  
Everybody else can leave but I want you to stay

Won't you lay me down beside the red firelight?
Won't you throw your fears away?
You be the pistol I'll be the crystal
Cause I can see through what you trying to say

I want your color in a world shaded with gloom
We could be a campfire and howl at the moon
But the suns gonna rise soon
Just forget to mention love to build the tension  
Lets not wonder if its right  
Can we continue roll play?
No dancing in dismay
We might not have the chance on another day

Won't you lay me down beside the red firelight?
Won't you throw your fears away?
You be the pistol I'll be the crystal
Cause I can see through what you trying to say

Won’t you lay me down?
Won’t you lay me down?

Won’t you lay me down?
Won’t you lay me down?
Won't you lay me down beside the red firelight?
Won’t you lay me down?
You be the pistol I'll be the crystal
Won’t you lay me down?
