Track Name: To the Mountains
Chorus
Go ahead and tell my friends
I'm going to the mountains
And it might be a while
Before I come back again

I wanna see the snow
After some time it starts to grow on me
I wanna leave this city behind
Cause what I need is a change in the pace of life
I wanna slow things down
That's why I'm going
to find a little cabin
In the mountains
Far from this place
You won't see my face
For some time

Chorus

I'll hold my light up high
So if you want you can come find me
We'll be so far from this city
It'll be a pity cause they won't miss us
And we won't miss them
And we won't call
We might not remember them at all
In the mountains
Far from your town
You and me'll be
The only ones around

Chorus
Track Name: Clap and Shout
Let's clap and shout for joy
We'll hope that summer never ends
And we'll play baseball with our friends
It'll be such a grand old time,
such a grand old time
Let's clap and shout for joy
We'll toss rings at the circus freaks
And buy cheap lemonade to drink
It'll be such a grand old time,
Such a grand old time

Chorus
So tell me
Does the sun shine any brighter
For you these days?
Cuz it seems that way to me
Oh tell me
Does the sun shine any brighter?
Well maybe it's because
we are so obviously in love

Let's dance around all night
There'll be nothing to frighten you
The moon casts such a light into
Your beautiful brown eyes
Your beautiful brown eyes
Let's dance around all night
No need to wait for the band to come
We already know how to have fun
It'll be such a grand old time
Such a grand old time

Chorus

Let's clap and shout for joy
Let's clap and shout for joy
We'll have such a grand old time
We'll have such a grand old time

Chorus
Track Name: Playin' Hard to Get
Chorus
All the guys who see her be like, “dang she fine”
Oh and every time she teases me I just lose my mind
And I don't know why I keep on wasting my time
Cuz every time I try to win her heart she ends up breaking mine

Oh she's a real heartbreaker
And I think half the time she doesn't even know what she's
doing to me and all the other guys who see her walk by...my my my
I send her texts, she never answers
I call her phone, she's never there
Yet for some reason I keep doing this to myself and it ain't fair....no it ain't fair

Chorus

Don't let her get into your head
Cuz then you're better off dead
oh cuz all she likes to do...is play hard to get and it ain't fair....no it ain't fair

Chorus (x2)
Track Name: Black Marks
Oh these black marks will be, the death of me
Sometimes they're all I can see
Even if there was a symphony
All I would hear is cacophony

And its not fair and its not right
That you can have just one stupid night
And its not right and its not fair
I call for you but you're never there

Chorus:
So take the white out, and see
All these black marks of humanity
Don't turn the light out, on me
Though the disgrace or lost face there may be
See its not easy, trusting
A record scathed and bleeding
But I'll show you
Clean loving

You're just a dream within a dream
You're just a song that I can't sing
I woke up 3 times cause I guess twice is not enough
that's when the going gets rough

And its not fair and its not right
That you can have just one stupid night
And its not right and its not fair
I call for you but you're never there

Chorus:


You can't get a dreamin if you can't fall asleep
and you can't find the missing peice when it's out of reach
you can't find your reason if you don't got rhyme
and you can't find your rhythm if you don't got time

When life is tearing at the seams
and you can't find the yells or screams
I can't seem to sing anymore
the more I play the less I seem to score

Chorus
Track Name: Epic Song (You're Gone)
I'm stuck in the same old rut again
and I don't know why I still call you friend
Cuz you've left me hangin' up to dry so long
That my bones are dried and bleaching in the sun

And now I'm stumbling, 'bout to fall
and you point and laugh not caring at all
Cuz you'll just use me til your needs are met
Then get your knife to stab me like the rest

(chorus)
You always lead me on
You always turn me wrong
Then when I need you most
You're gone
(x2)

You make me wanna smack myself upside the head
Curse you, screaming, “I wish you were dead!”
Cuz you're nothing but a liar and a cheat
Yet every time I see you, you sweep me off my feet, I'm falling

Well I hope that we have reached the end
Where I no longer have to call you friend
I don't know if I'll see you again
But I hope there's lots of time between now and then

(chorus x2)
Track Name: Happy Thursday
This is the time to wash away your doubts
This is the time when the truth comes out
This is the time when loneliness goes to die,
We're taking on the world, aiming our slingshots at the sky

It seems like a riddle, this greatest kind of love
It's something that could kill ya if you gave it enough
Time to roll in and out like the tides
Anything can happen if you give it enough time

Chorus
It doesn't matter if we go or if we stay
It doesn't matter what any of our friends say
Sweet Thursday's on its way

And in our boiler-room houses I'm sure we can find
The answers we seek, if we paid them any mind
Walls painted the brightest sky blue
The doorway so low that we'd have to crawl through

Chorus

And if one day we should drive away
And search for love together in the tides at the bay
Would you take the wheel as we leave our friends behind?

Chorus (x2)
Track Name: Le Radici
Vi raccanto una storia
ricordatevi non e di me
quando finero di raccontarla
sarà la fina di me e te

Chorus:
E vai via perché
per me non altra c'e
vai via perché non lo dissi
non mi dai uno mano
o pure un secondo
vai via prima che mi vedi


I'll say them and i'll tell them i'll whittle my words
as if they were made of wood
We form and shape the stories of our lives
like any good sculptor would

I gave you my heart and I gave you my love
But I guess when push comes to shove
I think you're sweet and I think you're nice
I loved you once can't love you twice

L'inizio del futuro non e semplice
come un fiore pian piano
i miei radici stanno diventando forte
e non grazie alle cose che facciamo

chorus

Vai via
Vai perche non altra c'e
Vai via
Vai perche non lo dissi
non mi dai una mano
oppure un secondo
Vai via
Vai prima che mi vedi

It's the beginning of the end
it's an unwanted friend it's love and love you see
Give me sunshine
give me teardrops
give me air to breathe
I gave you my heart and I gave you my love
But I guess when push comes to shove
I think you're sweet and I think you're nice
I loved you once can't love you twice

Vi raccanto una storia
e adesso non e su di me
quando finero di raccontarla
sarà la fina di me e te

L'inizio del futuro non e semplice
come un fiore pian piano
i miei radici stanno diventando forte
e i miei petali sotto sole stanno

chorus
Track Name: Jack London
Oh, send me back
into the wild
Where I can run free
just like a wolf
Yeah, take me home
to the place I was born at
So we can remember
how it used to be

Chorus:
And no one would tell us what to do
And no one would tell us what to do
cuz we'd be free just like a wolf
Just like a wolf

So set me free
or just let me be
But don't try to tell me
how to live my life
Goodbye to friends
and family
Because we're going
far away from here

Chorus
Track Name: History in the Making
A long long time ago
Somewhere in the pristine snow
No one knew and ever will know that he never, never, never
came back home

Once upon a time
She cinched her dress, set the table to dine
poured a glass and said "you're mine"
he took a sip, but never, never, never
took the climb

oh oh mama never told me so
oh oh oh
My my lift your eyes up to the sky
oh oh tell me why

CHORUS:
The sky, the sky, is so overused
so overdone and already been chewed
So save your breath and hold your tongue
the sting has already stung

So now you're crying in your bed
Take your pillow, lift your head
cause chivalry is lost not dead
what would you say if would've said
that dreams never, never, never come true

You're and infestation
here's my proclamation
make no alterations
cause you'll never, never, never get me back
oh no

oh oh mama never told me so
oh oh oh
My my lift your eyes up to the sky
oh oh tell me why

Even the brightest of lights
cast the darkest of shadows
i guess i was blinded by the light
blinded by the light of your halo
cause all the wise men never told me so
oh oh oh

CHORUS:
The sky, the sky, is so overused
so overdone and already been chewed
So save your breath and hold your tongue
the sting has already stung
The war is already won
Spring has already sprung
