Track Name: Your Crowded Heart
You, my darling
Are a shining star and
On this dark night,
It's too cloudy to see you
And I have tried
To be there in your time of need
But now I see
There's only so much I can do
To ease your heavy, troubled mind
And I will admit to you sometimes

That all I want to do is kiss your lips
But I know that's only a temporary fix
And I will try my best to find another way
Just to balance out the right words
With the words I really want to say to you

So many times
I thought you were the answer
To my loveless state of mind
And aimless wandering
But there's a delicate line
Between leaning on someone
And freely falling
And I don't blame you for a thing at all
But I will protect your insecurities
In the hopes that I can help to set you free

But all I want to do is kiss your lips
Though I know that's only a temporary fix
And I will try my best to find another way
Just to balance out the right words
With the words I really want to say

And if your crowded heart has no room for me,
I will learn to let you be
And though my arms will always be your place to hide
I'll just have to set aside

That all I want to do is kiss your lips
But I know that's only a temporary fix
And I will try my best to find another way
Just to balance out the right words
With the words I really want to say
Track Name: Middle of Anywhere
I'm just fine
I've got nothing but time
To wait for things to happen to me soon
It's almost dawn
All my prospects are gone
I toss delusions nightly around my room

I can't sleep at night
I'm drenched in sweat and doubt
I wish I could clear my head
But there's no space big enough
To empty it all out

Trying to save
All these walls from caving in
And crushing me under debris
It's been four years
Since you've been around here
I know you'd never stick around for me

I can't sleep at night
I'm drenched in sweat and doubt
I wish I could clear my head
But there's no space big enough
To empty it all out

And I can't seem to find
Any answers for my mind
And I would like to be
In the middle of anywhere but here

I can't sleep at night
I'm drenched in sweat and doubt
I wish I could clear my head
But there's no space big enough
To empty it all out
Track Name: Walk With Me
I haven't seen enough of your pretty face
I haven't heard enough of your sweet voice
But I'm intrigued and, just in case
I want to give you the choice

Hey there girl, will you walk with me?
Down to the river, and your hand I'll take
If you're saying this is only a dream,
I don't want to be awake

I'm aware there's not much time
Before this summer puts us on the shelf
I know I don't have much to offer you
Except for all of myself

Hey there girl, will you walk with me?
Down to the river, and your hand I'll take
If you're saying this is only a dream,
I don't want to be awake

I don't want to be awake
Track Name: Color
I walked the streets of Paris for three days on my own
And I searched inside myself as I aimlessly roamed
And when the sun fell down over bridges on the Seine
I retreated to a cold and empty two-star hotel bed
And over the Atlantic I was dreading misery
But I found you waiting patiently to keep me company
And I spent so much time wishing for a hand that I could hold
Now I'm watching on with wonder as our story still unfolds

For all I know darling, we're the only two
People in this town that doesn't have another you

I was going about it wrong
You were just around the corner
How did this take so long?
For a time, I was only seeing blue
Now I'm amazed by all the color in you

We drove east to the shore at night to see a new sunrise
Where I finally saw the true shade of your sparkling eyes
We held deep conversations without ever speaking words
Studying whatever else was left for us to learn

For all I know darling, we're the only two
People in this town that doesn't have another you

I was going about it wrong
You were just around the corner
How did this take so long?
For a time, I was only seeing blue
Now I'm amazed by all the color in you

Was it a dream from which we awoke?
Surrounded by stars and campfire smoke
And even in the darkest of nights
I can still see
All around me
The dawn of all your colors so bright

I was going about it wrong
You were just around the corner
How did this take so long?
For a time, I was only seeing blue
Now I'm amazed by all the color in you
I'm astounded by the color in you
Track Name: You Were My Home
Step off the tube at Gloucester Road
Into a new street crossing mode
Dragging a heavy luggage load
Through winding London streets
But this is no vacation stay
I wanna live a whole new way
Losing track of all the days
With new people that I meet

I still can't believe how quickly
You were my home
Now I feel I'm missing out
And I don't wanna live without you
London anymore

Down to Brixton for the night
But there's no guns and there's no knives
There's just reggae/ska fusion loud and bright
And dancing till the morn'
We'll get lost walking through the dark
Take lengthy shortcuts through Hyde Park
But we'll arrive to see the start
Of the day rising on our front door

I still can't believe how quickly
You were my home
Now I feel I'm missing out
And I don't wanna live without you
London anymore

Outside a pub in Camden Town
They're closing up the Underground
Amy leaves without a sound
And the night's getting cold
We'll stick around and drink some more
Hear the band on the second floor
Then we're through the same door
To catch the night bus home

I still can't believe how quickly
You were my home
Now I feel I'm missing out
And I don't wanna live without you
London anymore
