Track Name: House is a Home
I don't like horses she says
Laying on the bed
I want a a house with pets
Alpacas, cats, and hens
Big windows so we can see the sky
And lots of natural light
No other house in sight

Are you tired she asked
Laying with my cats
Wrapped up in a blanket
I wanna take a nap
And after tell me abut your dreams
Were they about me
Were we living by the Sea

I'm really sorry she cries
Tears in her eyes
every time this happens
I hold them back in mine
I love you were gonna get that house
Somewhere down the line
It's just gonna take some time
Track Name: Fourth Sunday
We can walk on the stairs by the shoreline
Where we spoke and collected mosquito bites
Together for the first time

We can go any place you admire
I'll take you where there are no florescent lights
Just stars in the sky
no florescent lights
Just stars in the sky

I will sing and I'll read by your shoulder
I will kiss any wound you sustain
And no bruised or cloudy sky
Could end this night

We can open the shades
Where the cats lay
You will blush I will smile
We collide
And no black hole could take this light
And no black hole could take this light
And no black hole could take this light
Track Name: The Hours Toll By
The hours toll by
Waiting on the sunshine
Waiting on the seed rising up
Through the ground

And when he wakes up
He kisses my nose
kisses my lips
With pollen cheek

I tend the garden and I tend to nap
I'd lose my head if it wasn't attached
With glue

The hours toll by when I'm not with you
The hours toll by when I'm not with you

I've got a paint brush
He's off selling sofas
Dreaming the gold rush
Is a stone's throw away

A shoebox of dry herbs
Pipe and a Lighter
Slide on a record
Painting our dreams

I tend the garden and I tend to nap
I'd lose my head if it wasn't attached
With glue

The hours toll by when I'm not with you
The hours toll by when I'm not with you

Some leaves were fallin'
And turning orange
The first day of autumn
Was the start of it all

Moonlight reflecting
In the backseat necking
Remember when we got caught by the cops

Now I'm waiting patiently

The hours toll by when I'm not with you
The hours toll by when I'm not with you
The hours toll by when I'm not with you
The hours toll by when I'm not with you
Track Name: Four Cactus
Four cactus living in the desert
Best buds their friendship can't be measured
Buried deep is a hidden treasue
So let's go looking
but bring the sunscreen

Four cactus ask a lot of questions
To win the game you gotta get the message
Buried deep are heavenly possesions
The map's confusing
At least we brought flash cards

Four cactus sleep under a full moon
Me and Roslyn show up with a big spoon
Try to dig but they woke up too soon
Answer some questions
Or meet your maker

Four cactus laughing in the dry breeze
Just kidding everything is cool beans
We're kinda thirsty did you bring a canteen
You give us some water
We'll love you forever
We're really sorry there is no treasure
but we're happy to make you acquaintance
Track Name: I'll Try to be More
I'm sorry if some nights I'm distant
I wish I could be more consistent
But not every Beatles song hit number 1
I'll try to be more like the sun
I'll try to be more like the sun

I'm sorry I'm tired work's over
It's strange now that I'm mostly sober
I swore I'd stop smoking if I found a way
I'll try to be more like the day
I'll try to be more like the day

I'm sorry if I pull your hair too much
I'm just thankful for a muse I can touch
It always seemed cruel to play catch and release
I'll try to be more like the breeze
I'll try to be more like the breeze

I love it when you talk about nature
I'm sorry I'm such a sound sleeper
Because you toss and turn and get worried and drained
I'll try to be more like the rain
I'll try to be more like the rain
I'll try to be more like the rain
Track Name: Retire Young
I wanna kiss you right now
I'm thinking about leaving this job
And sleeping it off
I'll make like a tree
Let's get some vitamin D
Just you and I
We're too young to die This way
This way
This way

Let's sail to the moon
On inflatable tubes
They'll see us in space
Riding radio waves
When out of the blue
You took off your shoes
Put on your shades and we spent some days
This way
This way
This Way
