Track Name: The View from The Roof
I wrote you a love song
That I thew into those flames
That burned my house down
Not the real one
Just the one in my head
Not my home
Just some wood I nailed together to keep the rain out
Nothing special but it served its purpose for a while

And you know these hard times
They're like California rains
Just give it some time
And i swear that soon enough
You'll see the sun shine
A bit brighter than before
You know it's true
That we all hate days like today
But we all need days like today
I swear it wouldn't be worth it without days like today

I wrote you a love song
Sounded a bit more like love than all the old ones
Words burnt my hands and my tongue
Thats why I wrote them

And I mean every last word
From the bad times to the worse times
The beautiful things we've heard
I'll keep my head up
And wait for you
Track Name: Getting There
I've got about a thousand thoughts burning through my head at this very moment
Not a single one will let me start today
Maybe if I wrote them all down you'd see this is not a song of desperation
I guess I'm just asking "What in God's name is going on?"

And it's taken me some time to realize
That it wasn't just me in the end

So I traveled around the world and saw what there was to see
Never moving, just standing still
And what i found was that most all the world has been discovered
So I'm not alone
I am not alone

I will float over the highways
Like a speck of dust in the wind
The trick is finding something better than
Whatever you thought that you had before
Track Name: Stuff's Good
When you let control slip through your fingers
You learn a few important things
like how much you can learn
when you let control slip through your fingers
or how much there is in life to live for
outside of your life plan and thats just the start
there is an entire world of stuff waiting to be messed with

I'm so sick of waiting
for the same old nothing to happen
just like it did before
so instead of starting at the beginning
I'm writing a brand new book this time
and i feel kinda weird saying it
but i think things are gonna be alright

When you let control slip through your fingers
You learn a few important things
like how much you can learn
when you let control slip through your fingers
