Track Name: Blue
Tell me to live in the present time.
So I do.
I wake up early to walk outside.
I feel blue.

I moved from the sun to the dark Parkside,
to start up a new.
"Two more years", I tell myself,
"I have to".

The first night we met your card was denied.
I paid for you.
I wore my coat even inside.
It was light blue.
The sky was dark and we drank all night.
We were deaf to Johnny Cash playing at volume nine.
A Boy Named Sue.

We walked to The City's far north side.
Remember our view?
We saw where The Bridge and the land collide with the ocean blue.
I looked at the grass as you looked in my eyes.
You already knew I was surrounded by what's inside.
But our love grew.

My last night has come and I say I'm fine but how are you?
I change my shirt for dinner time.
It was dark blue.
We waited about two hours in line for barbecue.
You were my lady, partner in crime.
Ill be back soon.
Track Name: Monotonous
We lack this thing called confidence.
We don't want no attention.
We feel so small on this continent.
Don't be so pretentious.

My world is spinning around again.
I'm feeling apprehensive.
These days get so monotonous.
Once again: "No New Messages".
Track Name: Someday
A year's been by and you're still here.
I'm not sure how after I showed my fears to you.
Only you.

Now six strings and my shaky voice,
they're keeping me from feeling lost without you.
I'm lost without you.

My truck's in drive but my heart's in park.
I feel alive when I sing these songs with you.
These songs with you.

It's funny how people now
think there's nothing going down.
It's untrue.
If they only knew.

So, now I go on my road.
Yes, I go on my own.
Hoping that someday,
Oh someday...
I'll be back home.
