Track Name: Shake It
Reminiscence;
When we were free
Perseverance,
Was the key

Looking back thinking if we really should've
Why couldn't we see, clearly?

Done some things that shouldn't have been done;
The regrets.
Started things that couldn't have been finished;
What a mess

No way out of these sticky situations,
Just looking for some good vibrations

If only, we could just shake it all away
(Like an etch a sketch) All day
If only, we could just do over our days
(As if there was no catch) Like it's child's play

If only things could ever bee that easy,
Wouldn't things just feel more light and breezy?

Catastrophic tornadoes to the stubbing of the toe,
Always trying not to let our feelings show
Wasting time with disasters we make,
When will we ever wake?
Track Name: Unexpected Ways
Verse 1
You say you've everything that you have wanted to see,(But you haven't)
Been there, done that, don't ever wanna go back
You read one line and you think you know the story by heart (But you don't)
You go around like you've found all the answers to the questions you have asked yourself

PreChorus
But do you think that you could answer me this?
There's still a couple things you got to check off your list
(singin')

Chorus
Do you know what you're supposed to do
When it happens, When it happens, when it happens to you?
Do you know how it feels when she says to you "I love you, Oh I love you baby yes I do"

The funny thing about it is it's never the same
'Cause the best things in life they come in unexpected ways

Verse 2
It's all so new to you, you've never had it beat so fast
It's something you must feel it can't be taught in any class!
You've read your books, searched the web, scanned her messages looking for a sign (but)
No matter how hard you try, can't get the thought of her out of your mind

PreChorus
So try to open your eyes, try to realize
Don't think that you can get it by asking other guys


Chorus

Bridge
Unexpected ways; How it sneaks upon you
Making you fall, every time, as if it's all brand new
Just one of these days, you will finally see through
Everything you thought you knew, and realize...You had no clue

Chorus

Chorus 2
Do you know what i'm supposed to see
When it happens, when it happens, when it happens to me?
Do you know why it feels like this, when she says
Ooh baby come on over and give me that kiss

The funny thing about it is it's never the same,
Because the best things in life, they come in unexpected ways.
Track Name: Perfect Weather
Lay down and watch that sun fly by
Then let it dip and see that moon take the sky.
Let down your hair and feel that breeze ride on through
Cuz the days are so much better when you got that perfect weather and you never gotta ask why.

I never knew you could change the way i see
Summer lovin'. Mmm Mmm
They say it'll never work this time
But listen baby dont you worry i got other things on my mind.

See i know, you aren't quick to settle down
Livin' free, i won't stop you now.
One thing that's for sure
Something's in the air and it's you who makes it hard to ignore

So let's take it slow, let's just

Lay down and watch that sun fly by
Then let it dip and see that moon take the sky.
Let down your hair and feel that breeze ride on through
Cuz the days are so much better when you got that perfect weather and you never gotta ask why.

Days seem longer, but months shorter with you drawn in the picture
But i can't complain. No.
Countless hours spent on one thing to nothing or fighting and laughter
Still somethings you got to know

The fear i have of leaving where we've gone
Lingers by the corners of my mind.
I knew it wouldn't take us very long sugar.
Though we're just getting by.

What i really wonder, if and for how long
can we keep that flame burning love, once the summer heat is gone
Track Name: In the Morning
"In The Morning"

I love my baby every morning,
When she's lying next to me.
Love to see her try to open those eyes,
though I'd rather be asleep.

In the shower getting fresh for the day,
What a day it's gonna be!

With my baby, need no fancy clothes, no
To make us feel like queen and king.
Ooh, the way that she can carry herself...she'd be fine.
If she weren't there to hear me sing.

Ain't nobody louder than us out there.
So I'd rather just stay in.

Not everyday I can see my girl,
So i wait however long I should.
Just to spend one day to remind me how...

I love my baby in the Summertime,
Wearing nothing' but my shirt.
Springin' flowers, Autumn knocks em down
Winter nights just feel right.

Stormy weather to the perfect days,
Never felt more alive.

Seasons change, not everyday's the same.
But I know the feeling will remain.
See if I'm replaced, I'll know the face of a happy man who'll say...

I loved my baby every morning,
Even while she stays asleep.
Love the way that she looks in my eyes, each night.
Still lying next to me.
Track Name: Pea Coat
V1
It's cold
So won't you come on in
And let me hold
Let me hold you close
So we can get through this weather, stay warm together
we got where to go

V2
Outside
I see what's falling through your
eyes,
Can't help but lie, saying
"no not too chilly, don't be so silly"
I just love
You in my jacket, like some sort of magic
And that smile

Chorus
I dont need the piles under the tree
It's not for me, quite simple you see
All i want this year is, you and me.
Take that pea coat off, slowly.

V3
Space for two
Dont mind me, i'm just...eying you.
In your fuzzy shoes
Coco in our hands, & you with your man,
what else to do.
Pop in a movie scoot on over to me,
But we're not through.

Chorus
I dont need the piles under the tree
It's not for me, quite simple you see
All i want this year is, you and me
So take that pea coat off...
