Track Name: Letter-writing Intro>Red-handed
Woke up this morning
I had a plan but didn't know where it would take me
Put on my shoes and
Walked out the door to see what I could find

I have to admit this
I don't know exactly what I'm doing here
I have to admit this
Everything around me is changing

You called my bluff
I need you as much as the sky needs the rain

Hey, love, I know it's been a long, long time since we first met
But I have to tell you something
I'm not well and I haven't been well for a long, long time
And I don't think I'll get any better
Unless, say, you were to love me
You were to love me
Track Name: Swimming
Swimming with you
And millions of fish by our side
We can play hide and go seek with eels
We can eat all our meals under the sea
With sharks and dolphins too
And if you should ever get blue
Think of me

Swimming with you
We can chase all the clouds from the sky
And just to get by, fade away

Swimming with you is so great
I like to think of us together, forever
Swimming with you is so great
I like to think of us together, forever

Swimming with you
Enjoying our time you and I
We can jump on the back of a whale
We can grab a fish and just set sail away
To a far-off, far-off place
And if it should be cloudy that day
Think of me
Swimming with you
We can let all our worries pass by
And everything on our minds fades away

Swimming with you is so great
I like to think of us together, forever
Swimming with you is so great
I like to think of us together, forever
Track Name: Mr. Jones
They say Mr. Jones isn't doing so well
Well, I haven't seen him so long, I couldn't tell
He used to be my best friend, my old pal
I wonder what's happened since then, what's happened to him now

So, hey Mr. Jones
It's been a long, long time and I haven't seen you
Why don't you come around and talk, talk to me?

I remember some days back a here or two
We'd sit around and talk about what we knew
Those days, they were many, but know he has few
I must have missed something important, I wish I had been there, been there to see it

So, hey Mr. Jones
It's been a long, long time and I haven't seen you
Why don't you come around and talk, talk to me?

I have fond memories of sitting on park benched, talking about summer
I have hundreds of photographs hanging on my walls
I have shoeboxes filled with ticket stubs and postcards
I had a friend

So tell me where I can go to see him
So I can say sorry for taking so long
I found his picture in yesterday's paper
I hope it's not too late to tell you how I feel

So, hey Mr. Jones
It's been a long, long time and I should have come to see you
I want you to know that lately you've been talking to me

Hey, Mr. Jones
I hope it's not to late to tell you I've missed you
I want you to know you were always a good friend to me
Track Name: The Kissing Tree
Do you feel what I feel?
Well the evidence is bouncing around me
From the rays of the sun
I think for a god
You're doing just fine for a while
It'd getting heavier all the time

If the grass could issue
The orders of what is to be
And the rain could make it true
I bet that the world
Would stop spinning for a time
To wait and see what I'd do

I will never forget the time
You grabbed my hand in the park
And kissed me on the mouth
It was raining that day
And you're shirt was all wet
And you said, "Come on, don't be scared it's me"
And I said, "What the hell"
And I thought this is fun
And that we should do it again some time
And I knew you were mine

Do you feel what I feel
Well the clouds overhead just can't stop
This momentum that I'm picking up
I think for a man
With me reputation I've found
What I need, and I am doing just fine

If the world would allow me
To open up the heavens one time
I would make you the sun for a day
So now, tell me this
What exactly must I do
To prevent this feeling from going away?

Remember the day we sat on your couch
And I tickled you until
You started to cry?
We ended up on your floor
You said, "Hold me" and I did
And then we fell asleep
When we woke up
The sun was shining in your room
You turned over and kissed me one more time
And I knew you were mine
Track Name: Sad Song
Thinking of a sad song
Wondering if this is the best that you can give me
After you have gone
My hands are still tied, going 'round the circles

Oh they way we used to talk
Talk for hours, swimming in nothing but words, words, words
It's you again, it's nice to see you hear
You haven't left me

Hoped it'd always be
Laughing and ice cream running down your chin
I caught it (yes I do remember)
Caught it with my tongue, oh, and your eyes open wide

Oh the way you stare
You stare at me like a child who just found his way home
When you look at me, I can feel your heart beating inside me
I don't ever want to close my eyes

When you left
I head the ground shaking form how fall I fell
When I'm trying to remember the sound of your voice
And we have so many days
So many secrets left to tell
I will have you… always

Thinking of a sad song
And dreaming, how did I ever live before this?
Now that it's been done
And over, my head's still spinning 'round in circles

Never miss a day
Without staring, looking at your picture in its frame
I caught it, I thought I saw you staring back at me from the wall
Well I guess it's just a dream

Do you remember when
I saw you playing with you hair in the rain?
And I called you over
I reached out and messed it right back up again

That was how I knew
I could stand here doing this forever
And I'm still standing with you
In the puddle, as long as I close my eyes

When you'd laugh
I could feel the ground shaking, laughing with you as well
And I try to bring it back
Bring back that sound into my head
And we have so many days
So many secrets left to tell
If I could have you always

Thinking of a sad song
And wondering if this is the best that you can give me
Track Name: Outside
I've been blinded by the long-term wrinkles of my head
I see nothing but an endless field of anticipation
I've been waiting for something exciting to come around
I can sit and listen patiently for any sound

But it never does
And what of our love
That we lost a long, long time ago?
And what of your touch?
I found it on the ground beneath my feet
When I called you
I called you outside

I wanna be big, I wanna run
I wanna lay down my cards
No more of this hurry up and wait to be patient
I wanna let go of this old man
That weighs on my neck and
Fills me up with all this sadness
Track Name: Justin Friello feat. Joshua Mlodzianowski - Lean On My Heart
Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby

Lean on my heart now, baby
It's a good palce to start
I'll keep you safe and warm
Not always warm in the wintertime
I can't promise you anything
But my heart and my love

Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby

To have you
In my arms
It would feel so good to be safe and warm
Time passes by, leaves its signature
Envelops me, envelops us all

So,
Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby

One more, another burned CD case
Penciled in with my love
I fit you best in the sunshine
501 ways for you to love me

Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby
I've got a craft for you, baby
Something that you could try
Lean on my heart now, baby

Pencil me in baby, in your book
We can get together on the boulevard
Don't erase me, don't lock me or tape me out
I've got the sound for you

Space out my p's and q's now
Make room for me in you
Like a paper clip we fit together
We fit together, fit you best
If I had a million dollars for all the rejections I've had
I would be a rich man, la da da da
But not this time; I've got space for you
Control, option, escape out of me

Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby
Lean on my heart now, baby

Push my buttons
You push them so well
You push them so well
Don't push me away
I've got your picture in my frame
On the mantle above my heart
Above my heart
Track Name: Lynn, the cracksmoking bus driver
It's Lynn, the cracksmoking bus driver
She's higher than the clouds
It's Lynn, the cracksmoking bus driver
She's higher than, higher than me.
And I smoke two pounds a day from my purple bong

Lynn, she drives a school bus
And on two wheels she rides
Lynn, when she drives on the freeway
It feels like we're falling off the side

It's Lynn, the cracksmoking bus driver
She's higher than the birds
It's Lynn, the cracksmoking bus driver
She's higher than, higher than me.
And I just bought another dime bag from the hobo off the street

Lynn, when she drives
It's like we're on the race track
Lynn, sometimes I think she smokes
More than just crack

Lynn, Lynn
Lynn, Lynn

Sit, sit down, she says
Sit, sit down, she says
Sit, sit down, she says
Sit, sit down, she says

Don't write on the seats or you'll get written up
But she never catches me, she don't give a fuck, yeah!

She never wears color, she only wears black
So you give her the middle finger when she turns her back to us!

It's Lynn, the cracksmoking bus driver
She's higher than the clouds
It's Lynn, the cracksmoking bus driver
She's higher than, higher than me.
