Day Dreams 03:42
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 v

The movies in her head, the movies in her head Try to beat 'em to it but you can't The first time that you saw it, you said it felt correct How long will you stay in with me tonight? So I can find my way back into your heart Sisters and the pets they keep Runners on easy street Oh and the lovers on the TV screen They don't look nothin' like you and me You said you would know, you said you would know When all is said and done I guess you don't You’re slamming on the brakes before we even start Holding it together while I fall apart Why can't I find my way back into your heart? Your pillow and a cigarette I'm in your old school rolodex, baby I'm falling I'd kill to be there for the rest Or is this really all I get? I'm falling Oh and I mean it now Sisters and the pets they keep Runners on easy street Oh and the lovers on the TV screen They don't look nothin' like you and me If you want to lay back down If you ever change your mind If you want to waste some time Sisters and the pets they keep Runners on easy street Oh and the lovers on the TV screen They don't look nothin' like you and me

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

Ottawa 04:14
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

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?

Stranger 03:18
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
