Track Name: Idealist Temperament
Saturday morning
a time we set aside
Reading over your shoulder
We like the same lines, We know each other’s style.
If Sunday feels bitter
I know the reasons why
Don’t have to explain it
nothing to gain by keeping yourself inside.

Romantics like us are filling up the streets now that the colleges have let out. If you’re waiting for someone to say “You belong here.” I’ll say “You belong here.” like Tom Sawyer, secretly we all want to settle down some day.

Maybe there’s a reason
We’ve found each other here
Endless adolescence
isn’t a blessing isn’t a blessing.
So when Dadelus feels lonely
We know the reasons why
Still try to explain it
Nothing to gain by keeping it all inside.
Track Name: Pt. 1 End of the Summer
When you moved to this town, I knew, I had no chance to keep my cool.
So we hung out, and I found out, I was right.
All of the warnings meant nothing
when you showed up at my front door
and the sunset was enormous in my eyes.

End of the summer. It felt over. What am I to do? Is it so wrong, is it so wrong to
hang out with you.

Yeah I was blinded by the season, watched the grass turned from green to brown, while I waited to for my moment to arrive.
Just give me a reason, to believe, that it didn’t mean anything and I’ll try to move on, yeah get on with my life.

I know, I know that it’s a fantasy, but I’m buying in.
If you never believe in the fantasy, why even try again?

Hey Stephen I could give you 50 reasons why I should be the one you choose. All those other girls, well they’re beautiful, but would they write a song for you?
Track Name: Pt. 2 Less Than True Love
It’s been a while
since I committed to someone, and I know it should be fun, but...
I can’t take the way, you don’t respond to what I say, you’re just staring at my face.

I’d rather be alone
than standing still with you while your life passes by.

You’re so nice, and I know I’m not the quiet type, and that can be hard to keep up with.
but all my friends drive me crazy every day, I mean that in the best way.

I’d rather be alone
than standing still with you while your life passes by.

It’s not your fault, it’s not your fault...that I’ll never settle down. That I’ll never settle for less than true love.
Track Name: Future Ghost
Around the bonfire with the first signs of winter here
Cold air and alcohol keeping the mood sincere
Richard says “Dejavu means you’re where you’re meant to be.”
Well, If it’s prescience I know what I want to see

Wish I could see your future ghost
haunting all the places I go.
So I know you’ll stay around
When all the other people I know
Take their lives to distant places.
I want to hear the sound of our future voices
bouncing round this town.

We put the fire out and come home through empty streets
Warm incandescent light heating the cold bedsheets
Feels a little dangerous, this much honesty.
Here’s how I’d tell you how much you mean to me

Hope you see my future ghost
Haunting all the places you go
So you know I’ll stay around
When all the other people you know
Take their lives to distant places
I want to hear the sound of our future voices
bouncing round this town

I wanna see our future ghosts haunting all the places I go.
