Track Name: 2049
I always wonder were you are, whenever we're apart
are you beyond the states of Rome, or running through the park
you're never very far, but far enough
to make me wish for one more set of arms
to wrap you up and hold you til the sun burns out

If I would sail the great beyond, I know you'd follow suit
in your new car, into the pond, but why take the route
to follow through and through, when we could hold
the record for the longest hug in space
or enter a three legged race, and come in last place

I'm always happy when I'm (I'm always happy when I'm)
I'm always happy when I'm (I'm always happy when I'm)
I'm always happy when I see your lovely face
I'm always happy when I'm, when I'm with you.

Imagine laughing to the moon, and turning right around
to find we've circled all but one, listing in the sky
I've never been so high, and still I wonder
where we'll be in 2049
I couldn't care less as long as we're side by side.
Track Name: Out There
Out there, in suburbia there lives a wild,
a wild man and a lover, and maybe their child.

Don't you know they've got to go, further than our minds
pushing for a better home, one with out denial

Out there, in the forest, the animals wait
for their share of remorse, it's better than hate

Don't you know they've got to go, further than our minds
pushing for a better home, one with out denial

And wouldn't it say that if we stay the same then the world will change without us
but if we pull apart knowing nothing of heart then the world won't move on without us.
And if we say that if we stay the same then the world will change without us
but if we pull apart knowing nothing of heart then the world won't move on without us.

Don't you know they've got to go, further than our minds
pushing for a better home, one with out denial
Track Name: Stuck On A Hill
It's a long long way down, and if you reach you'll touch the clouds
but don't hesitate, or you'll tumble to the ground,
don't hesitate, you'll be found
And if you look for a sign, you'll be the first one in line,
so don't hesitate, you'll be found.

Walking alone only gets you so far, take my hand, and we will be transported over the stars, with you I will never fear anything, hold me closer

It's a long long way down, and if you reach you'll touch the clouds,
or so it seems, while you struggle to be found, or so it seems, keep your ground.

Walking alone only gets you so far, take my hand, and we will be transported over the stars, with you I will never fear anything, hold me closer.
And after we climb to the top of this mountain, we'll soar, to the ends of Earth, through the universe, but now we can pull each other from the depths, please just hold me closer

Hold me closer.
Track Name: BF&E
Right about now, I'm feeling like a clown,
dancing and a juggling, I hope I keep it all up in the air
And don't let it fall down, don't fall down, let you down.

Right about now, I can't hear a sound,
Talking in one ear and out the other, it all goes into the air
And I never know where it goes, you don't know, no one knows

I notice everything, best friends and enemies,
I know, let go, I notice everything.
Track Name: Light
On the way into town I turn by another street
I see the car that you once drove
living with strangers
and I wondered how far away you are

After all my chores were through, I took another drive just to
see the old car parked alone, shaded by a fir
and I wondered how far away you are
how I wondered how you could come back without your car

It didn't look like you'd make it
It didn't look like you could
but you're out there, somewhere
you're out there, lighting up the world

For a year or two I've kept my promise to visit
that old car, as long as, I knew where it was living
but it's left me, without warning
it's left, and I'm still mourning you

It didn't look like you'd make it
It didn't look like you could
but you're out there, somewhere
you're out there, lighting up the world
you're out there, somewhere
you're out there, lighting up the world.
