Track Name: Freedom Of Mind
Draw draw, draw draw draw…

Walking down the shore
My mind wants to explore
Through the skies and through the doors

Should I be walking here?
Or should I be running there?
In the end should I even care?

Draw your own path
Draw your own path
Draw your own path
[X4]

Wishing I could draw my own lines
Without being out of line

Let the freedom of my mind
Decide what makes me shine

I’ll do me, and you’ll do you
And we’ll be just fine

Draw your own path
Draw your own path
Draw your own path
[X4]

Draw your own path
Draw your own path
Draw your own path
[X2]

Draw your own path
Draw your own path
Draw your own
Track Name: B-Side Dreams
No one else knows me more than you do, girl
No one else knows you more than I do
We’re good together, we’re getting closer
Every new day with you makes me wanna go further

We don’t need to need each other
What we need is Love, sweet love, self-lovin’
Knowing you I can say
It’s gonna be pretty easy

I do love you and myself too
You need to need you and we’ll make it through
Please, understand me when I say
I just need some time

You need it too, girl
Make it happen
Take the time you need
And then come back with me
If you feel it

I never really think about anybody else
I do know that you’re the one for me
But I’m starting to find that it’s getting hard to breathe in here

I do love you and myself too
You need to need you and we’ll make it through
Please, understand me when I say
I just need some time

You need it too, girl
Make it happen
Take the time you need
And then come back with me
If you feel it

I do love you and myself too
You need to need you and we’ll make it through
Please, understand me when I say
I just need some time

Nothing never really ends
It fades into
Something new
Track Name: Ride This Feeling
It keeps on knocking at my door
I won’t try to stop it anymore
There’s gotta be a reason
This ain’t no simple teasin’, yeah

This whole thing’s got me feeling sore
But somehow I want more
There’s gotta be a reason
This can’t be me just dreamin’

Oh, oh oh oh
I gotta ride this feeling
Oh, oh oh oh
This is what I’ve been needing

There’s more than one way to go
Life’s not a straight line don’t you know
Only my heart knows
When it doesn’t feel like home

Oh, oh oh oh
I gotta ride this feeling
Oh, oh oh oh
This is what I’ve been needing

Oh, oh oh oh
Ride this feeling
Oh, oh oh oh
Ride this feeling
Track Name: I Want to Be There
It all should have started
By me asking if you were feeling right
I think you tried in some kind of way
I heard it while listening through your eyes
I must concede, I got lost in your loving haze
You couldn’t see from the other side

Then allow yourself to listen to me
I want to be there
(I don’t want to)
No need to think fast
Because I want this to last

It should not have started
Any differently than this, am I right?
Every kiss and every talk
Everytime your fingers touch my skin
It feels so natural

The warm echoes that follow your voice
Have become an addictive memory
Just like a sight of your eyes on mine
It drags me to your body
It’s heavy, you got me

So allow yourself to listen to me
I want to be there
(I think I do)
No need to think fast
Because I want this to last

I want to be there
(I think I do)
No need to think fast
Because I want this to last

I want to be there
Track Name: Wild Thoughts
Saw you walking home last night
You were all alone
I would’ve held you tight if I would’ve known, oh

Looking so fine my dear
Wandering through town
You say you want me near but you keep looking down

Something just don’t feel right
You call me on my phone
You tell me that you’re lost and you keep getting stoned, oh

I know you’ll figure it out
The pain will subside
With the weight of all your wild thoughts

With all your wild thoughts
With all your wild thoughts
With all your wild thoughts

Saw you walking home last night
You were all alone
I would’ve held you tight if I would’ve known, oh

Just give it some time
The pain will subside
With the weight, of all your wild thoughts
Track Name: Propeller
Ever since I was little
I felt stuck in the middle
Now I like it

Though sometimes I think that
Something is missing
But I have it all

There must be a way
To get over it
There must be a way
To get over it

Sometimes I can’t see at all
But I feel it deep inside
How could I know from the start
That I didn’t have to waste my time
How could I know from the start
That I didn’t have to lose my mind

Denial, Oh denial
This life is not a trial
Denial, Oh denial
Let’s make this all worth while

Sometimes I can’t see at all
But I feel it deep inside
How could I know from the start
That I didn’t have to waste my time

Sometimes I can’t see at all
But I feel it deep inside
How could I know from the start
That I didn’t have to lose my mind

There must be a way
To get over it
There must be a way
To get over it
There must be a way
To get over it
