Track Name: Mine (2017)
~ Lyrics ~


Seventeen and never had a job, he waits for luck to pick him up
Oh I, wish I could hold him like that
Sittin' down in the summer sun, on the sidewalk curb he waits for no one
And just figures it out

Where do you go when you're all alone
Do you think of me and all we could've done
I tried to let him know a thousand times, I said

[CHORUS

Keep your head up baby, I’ve been thinkin' maybe
One of these days we, are gonna figure it out
And I can't find a reason, whatever light he's in
I think he shines. I'd love to call him mine
Mine]

Eighteen and oh-so-lost he knows the dream but not the cost
Oh I, wish I could tell him everything
Sittin' down in the summer sun, on the sidewalk curb he waits for no one
Just figures it out

Where do you go when you're all alone
Do you think of me and all we could've done
I tried to let him know a thousand times, I said

[CHORUS]

Where do you go when you're all alone
Do you think of me and all we could've done
I tried to let him know
A thousand times, I said

[CHORUS]
Track Name: Rush
~Lyrics~

I know the water's cold. I know you can't see the bottom
And even though you know, you think you can't breathe without him
Stick to your guns, Fill up your lungs

[CHORUS

Stick to your guns, darlin’, fill up your lungs
And you'll be just fine, I'll watch you go now
These waves they crush, but trust in this rush

You'll be just fine you’re headin' home now
Stick to your guns]

We’ve been this way before, the water’s high, but you can stand it’s
Your way back to shore, Baby I’d never leave you stranded
Stick to your guns, Fill up your lungs

[CHORUS]

(bridge)

Careful, careful
You know there's sharks in these waters, darlin’
Careful, careful. Careful, careful.

Careful, careful
You know there's sharks in these waters, darlin’
Careful, careful. Careful, careful.

Careful, careful
You know there's sharks in these waters, darlin’
Careful, careful. Careful, careful.
Keep a weather eye,

[CHORUS]
Track Name: 300 Days (acoustic)
~Lyrics~

Just another day, 299 have come and gone away
And I'm sick in the head, darlin'
I'm scrolling through old pictures and never leaving bed
When I see it says, it's been 300 days

[CHORUS

300 days since I last saw you, 300 nights since you were mine
I've been tryin' not to sleep ‘cause babe there's demons at my feet
At night they pull me down to somewhere that I never asked to be

300 days since I last kissed you, 300 nights since I was yours
And I am obviously fine with the fact that you're not mine
'Cause I was never yours, at least I tell myself that sometimes

I've been trying, Yeah I've been dying
For 300 more]

Haphazardly, I've been writing down the reasons we were never meant to be
It makes me sick, in my head darlin'
That time is a-wastin' and you're in someone else's bed
These memories will fade, but it's been so many days

[Chorus]

(bridge)

To talk to someone like you for 300 days
If you'll excuse my indecisiveness, the mess that it's made
I'll tell myself all I want, this is the way it is
It doesn't have to be the way that it is

300 days since I last saw you, 300 nights since you were mine
And I've been tryin' hard to sleep, somehow I end up on my knees
And I am makin' God these promises I know that I can't keep

300 days since I last kissed you, 300 nights since I was yours
And I am obviously fine with the fact that you're not mine
'Cause I was never yours, at least I tell myself that sometimes

I'll be trying, yeah I'll be dying
For 300 more]
Track Name: Sam Song
~Lyrics~

She is sunshine and black and white pictures
She is marzipan and stars that can shine,
when she leaves I miss her

She is sunshine and dark clouds some days
Don’t ask if she’s good, I know that she’s good
She’s okay

And mister, you better love her like an old doll house
The windows are pretty, it’s just a little empty
Some rooms you’ll find yourself locked out

Daisies and caramel liquor
Don’t ask if she’s good, I know that she’s good
She’s cool

But mister, you better love her like an old doll house
The windows are pretty, it’s just a little empty
Some rooms I find myself locked out
