Soweto 02:52
I just sit tight Waiting for an extra end And my summer’s going Very very warm So you dance to Paul Simon And you think to Chris Andrew I just sit tight Wondering why I’m home And our summer’s going Very very warm I can see you dance to Paul Simon And you think to Chris. Andrew Now the room is full of thinkers Waiting for the fifteen fifty break And all their classmates left before they had to tell the joke When they ask a 30 / 30 well I ll lost again I’ll go Maybe one more blonde one for the sunny road My nba posters going yellow on the wall And my name when it gets closer to last call And your name when it gets closer to last call

Rainy May 04:17
Most of the time locked on one speed Down the same old road Counting the signs and the sidelines When your voice springs Two parallels lines a heart’s racing There’s a quiet place Sleepless I’m gonna watch old photographs So long since I haven’t seen the sun Most of the time It’s simple maths My daughter’s the same We look alright but it changes so fast Sleepless I’m gonna watch old photographs So long since I haven’t seen the sun It’s like rainy days When it hits the window I’d rather raise a woody shed On the outside of Lyon We try to breathe another night in Lyon We try to change, another night in Lyon

You speak too much alone but it’s alright I’m leaving a few things at your place A white shirt and some jeans I’ll never pick ‘em up coz I’m gonna live with you I know these days are over Wished they stayed a little longer Accept the water has flown Or you’ll sink like a stone

Small talks 05:15
I can’t write it down The joke’s not funny I can’t spell it out Your name’s uncanny I don’t exactly know what I’m supposed to do It’s a little silhouette that is fading out Bitter problems, small worries. Small talks are made out of little jokes You probably don’t like Sorry I didn’t get your name right Oh whatever So you decide to leave Cuz all they do is talk, talk, talk. I can’t write it down The joke’s uncanny I can’t spell it out Your name’s not funny Let’s sustain our agin’ and the way we’re trying We are little silhouettes that are fitting in

Standing outside watching the cars go by I don’t really know if I wanna be here now In the early morning rain I’m overthinking once again cause I feel no rush I’d fall from a giant tree I’m lost in a queen-size sea We’re paving our way to well-known borderlines I really know I do want to be there now On the early morning train I’m on everything Because I stepped real nice I’d fall in a thousand leaves Winter spring summer fall repeat fun hoops Drive runout lake swim reapat how do you say ? High low bored psyched repeat how do you cope ? Love learn watch die repeat nice to meet you

In rilievo 05:02
A teenage dream of a ride supreme We can talk about anything Except the weather The living room is so silent, dead quiet like my stiffed muscles I can’t stand anymore There’s so much more that we can talk about There’s so much more that we can talk about The shape of water is the only thing My eyes can see when they open in Michigan It keeps me it keeps me up to the cold white tile Now sing me something like smooth operator There’s so much more that I can talk about It keeps me up / It brings me down

Pliocene 04:01
I’m naming every pain after anything I read on a webpage I don’t sleep well too much anxiety piled up in me I speed read my screen for techni-color dream and smoother nights Shaking cold at night, there’s a part I can’t see right Don’t wanna sleep to Don’t wanna dream to The sound of confusion Hey doc, do I need a light prescription? Hey doc, would you give me medication? Help me to sleep well With something else than pills I just need to see you And I feel better Shaking off at night there’s a part I can’t see right Shaking cold at night there’s a part I can’t see right
