Track Name: Outsiders
Outsiders

VERSE 1:
Somewhere in my life, along the way,
I found a funk down in my heart,
I know it came from the pain,
Because that don’t come a la carte.

PRECHORUS:
And I’m here to tell you if you feel that way,
You don’t need to play the game,
All you’ve got to do, is make it work for you,
Cuz funky people’ve got no shame.

CHORUS:
All you outsiders, ain’t nothing you’ve got to be,
Ain’t no one you’ve got to please,
So please,
Take it easy.

All you outsiders,
Ain’t nothing you’ve got to prove,
All you’ve got to be is you,
Parce que tu es parfait

VERSE 2:
I know nothing--
I know nothing at all.
But I can feel you.

OUTRO:
Do you ever find yourself outside looking in?
Do you ever find yourself inside looking out?
We're all gonna go someday--you might as well begin
Start to live. Start to live.
Track Name: Ephemera
Ephemera

VERSE 1:
A bottle of Mickey’s, at 8:00 in the morning,
She used to be pretty, but that was then,
Her smile is cracking, and her eyes are shining,
Memories of singing, in some 70’s cover band.

CHORUS:
Are you looking for a sign? Tell me
Are you here on borrowed time? Tell me
Are these your nights of Gethsemane? Tell me
Or are you digging holes in the rain?

VERSE 2:
He grew up an outcast, in the city of angels,
Gay kid from the projects, fighting everyone,
Love can be anger, and anger kept him moving,
But now he’s an old man, and the fire’s almost gone.

OUTRO:
Ephemera, ephemera, ephemera,
We are all…
Track Name: The Last Love
The Last Love

VERSE 1:
Falling through your waters,
Let me be your sinking stone.
Walking through your cities,
Let me wander there alone.
I don’t need to have you,
I don’t even want to know.
And you don’t need to love me,
But you gotta let me feel...

CHORUS
This is the last time
That I’ll ever fall in love.
I can’t love you,
But I could never give you up.

VERSE 2:
Waking up at the night
Let me be your hidden sun.
Wondering how to make it right,
Let me be your choice to run.
I’m just here to listen,
You know I’m not like everyone,
You don’t need to love me,
But you gotta let me feel…

OUTRO:
I've been here before,
Caught up
In the ceiling fan--
Holding you
And spinning
With the shadows.
With the shadows.
With the shadows.
Track Name: Sketches of Ann
Sketches of Ann

VERSE 1:
With lowered eyes you smile,
And lean into the night;
You part your lips and sigh,
Every kiss, a kiss of life.

The way you look tonight,
You make me feel so young--
The music in your mind
Echoes in my heart.

CHORUS 1:
It feels like such a lonely world sometimes,
The cold wind rushes through the streets at night,
But when I walk with you, your hand in mine,
The cold wind comes alive.

VERSE 2:
You brush aside your bangs
But they fall right back again,
Your heart is full of questions,
Mine is just the same.

Whispered through your cold hands,
Hidden under scars,
Shining in your dark eyes--
The beauty that you are.

CHORUS 2:
It feels like such a lonely world sometimes--
Answers that you feel you'll never find,
But when I talk with you, your hand in mine,
The silence comes alive.

VERSE 3:
Hours turn to seconds,
And seconds into dreams,
Dancing in the darkness,
Close to you, Ann-Mary.

Close enough to feel--
Beside each passing train--
Your heart beating in mine,
The world falling away.

CHORUS 3:
It feels like such a lonely world sometimes--
Time will wash away the good you find,
But when I'm close to you, your hand in mine,
love is outside time, love is outside time, love is outside time, love is outside.
Track Name: The Floating World
The Floating World

VERSE 1:
Ana wakes up at dawn,
And goes running by the river’s edge,
Louis Vuitton
And 6-figures run through her head.
She’s never alone,
But she’s never the one to stay,
Chasing that dream,
That’ll make her feel something someday.

VERSE 2:
In the middle of the night,
Daniel wakes up in a cold sweat,
Too early to score,
Too late to start over.
Camila’s with mom,
And he’s in a cold room thinking,
“Where has it gone”
“How the hell did I get here?”

CHORUS
Sometimes I feel,
Like I could disappear.
When the night comes,
I’m part of the floating world.
But pleasure is life,
So what are you looking for?
We’re painted on
Pictures of the floating world. Yeah.

VERSE 3:
So much to prove
To people I never knew,
The wrong kind of love,
The wrong way to fall for you.
It’s starting to rain,
The ink is washing away.
All I desire
Out to the Atlantic ocean.
Track Name: Let Me In
Let Me In

VERSE 1:
There’s a spirit calling from the north,
There’s a white ship sailing from the port,
There’s a cold wind blowing from the south,
And the only way in for me is out.

CHORUS:
Let me in
I’ve been wandering for too long.
Let me in,
And help me begin to belong.

VERSE 2:
In the open waters of the heart,
Before I sink and fall apart,
I want to know you as you are.

But would I recognize,
The truth behind your eyes,
If I heard you saying

"Let me in
I’ve been wandering for too long.
Let me in,
And help me begin to belong."
