Track Name: Hello, Darling!
Oh, hello darling!
Tell me what you dreamt about last night
I doubt you've thought too much about it.
Oh, hello darling!
It's so nice to wake up next to you although
I barely sleep with you in my bed.

I tell you to roll over when I leave...
No need for you to get up, just go right back to sleep
And when I come back, then we'll talk--
It's okay that it's still dark
I might not say what's on my mind,
but you know what I mean.

Oh, hello darling!
It's so nice to see your sleepy face
next to mine on my pillow in the dark
Oh, hello darling!
If it were up to me, I'd never leave
I swear, this is not my hour.

I tell you to roll over when I leave...
No need for you to get up, just go right back to sleep
And when I come back, then we'll talk--
It's okay that it's still dark
I might not say "I love you"
but you know that's what I mean.

Oh, hello darling!
I'm sorry that I left you but I'm back again
to spend some time with you
Oh, you're my darling!
Let's just have a lazy day and lie in bed until it's half past two!

I tell you to roll over when I leave...
No need for you to get up, just go right back to sleep
And when I come back, then we'll talk--
It's okay that it's still dark--

I might not say "I love you"...
Oh, but when I kiss you...
you know that's what I mean :)
Track Name: Right Now
Hold me closer
don't be shy
listen to the way our hearts are beating.
Listen to the midnight sky
girl I love to hear the way you're breathing...

Use your body to say the words--
I'm still learning how
Girl I love the way you look
and it's just us right now
Maybe it's the whiskey
Maybe it's the moon
But I hope the sun doesn't come up soon.

Pull me closer
Don't look down
God I love the way you look beside me (beside me)
Let me be here, be here now
laughing all the way the way I do
With you...

Use your body to say the words--
I'm still learning how
Girl I love the way you look
and it's just us right now
Maybe it's the whiskey
Maybe it's the moon
But I hope the sun doesn't come up soon.

Instrumental

Maybe this is just tonight
But I think that's quite all right
We'll make it count for what it is
Do you even know what that is?
Maybe you are not "the one"
Maybe this is just for fun...
There's nothing wrong with what we've done tonight--
Am I right, or am I right?

Hold me closer
don't be shy
listen to the way our hearts are beating.
Listen to the midnight sky
girl I love to hear the way you're breathing...

Use your body to say the words--
I'm still learning how
Girl I love the way you look
and it's just us right now
Maybe it's the whiskey
Maybe it's the moon
But I hope the sun doesn't come up soon.
Track Name: Run
Run, run, run through the morning
run through the dark,
run to the river.
Run, run, kicking up the dust, oh
run, run, run to the riverside.

River running out,
river running through my feet,
river underneath
river underneath my seat,
river flowing, flowing to the ocean, oh
run, run, run to the riverside.

Instrumental

Sun, sun, rising in the mountains,
sun, sun, opening the morning,
sun, sun shining on the water, oh
sun, sun, opening the day for me.

Repeat First Verse
Track Name: The Way You Look at Me
For the first time in a long time
I feel special
For the first time in a long time
I feel desirable
For the first time in a long time
I feel unsure
For the first time in a while
I feel out of control

But when you look at me
I feel perfect
The way you look at me
makes me sigh
I'm so off my feet, but you say
it's perfect
And I can see you mean it
in your eyes...
hmm

For the first time (maybe ever)
I feel wanted
I feel happy, bright, and shiny when you're near
I don't mean to set too much store by it
So all I'll say is "I like having you here"

'Cause when you look at me,
I feel perfect
The way you look at me
gets me high
I don't know what I'm doing
but you say I'm perfect
And somehow I can see it
in your eyes...
I'm still surprised.

And I'm so terrified of everything I see
Especially what is in your eyes when you look at me
And when I open mine and you're staring at my soul
it makes my heat rise, it makes my heart go
You say you're broken, and that life's been cruel
trust me, I get it, I know what you are going through
And I'm so nervous, don't know where this will go
I tell you I DON'T KNOW

And then you look at me
and tell me I'm perfect
And something in your eyes tells me it's true
I don't know what will happen
but you make it worth it
And somehow, I love looking at you too.
Who knew?
Hmm...
Track Name: What Can I Say?
Love,
where have you gone?
I haven't seen you
in quite some time.
You
seem to be lost
you don't know what you need,
or if you can be mine...

So what can I say?
How can I bring you back?
What kind of bitterness waits for me
on the other end of the phone?
Do you still want me?
Can you accept my love?
Can I just sit with you,
and not feel I'm alone?

I
don't know how
you got this far
without reaching out.
You
you're mad at me now
'cause I'm not letting you
just shut me out...

So what can I say?
How can I bring you back?
What kind of bitterness waits for me
on the other end of the phone?
Do you still want me?
Can you accept my love?
Can I just sit with you,
and not feel I'm alone?

And I don't want to play along with this
I know you too well to fall for the empty happiness
This is a game I refuse to play
There's no winner either way...

I said
I wanted to talk to you
but really I wanted you
to just look me in the eye
Sit with me,
just let me be with you
nothing we need to do,
yeah that's what I'd like.
Nothing but me and you,
would that be alright?

But what could I say?
I'll never bring you back
What kind of bitterness
waits for me
on the other end of the phone?
Say you still want me
Say you'll accept my love
Just let me sit with you,
and know I'm not alone...
Nothing we need to do,
we'll not be alone...
