Track Name: i hold my own hands now
read a lot of books never learned enough
got a lot of friends count em on my toes
tell a little joke make a little prayer
walk along with me let me know i'm here

i hold my own hands now i've held them for some time

waking up alone you're in the other room
hear you through the wall hum a little tune

i hold my own hands now i've held them for some time

blocks of colour, rays of light
stack together what feels right

i hold my own hands now i've held them for some time
Track Name: helmet song
i always wear a helmet cause i never know when i'm gonna fall
it doesn't do much but it's better than nothing at all

and i don't wanna die
i'm not ready to die
i'm not ready to say good bye

i always wear a helmet cause you never know when you're gonna slip
your brains on the pavement and your blood on the ground and that's it

and i know it's not good to be scared
i'm not trying to make you scared
i just like to be prepared
Track Name: movie life
life is a movie you can watch in heaven when you're dead
my life is a story book she said

everything means so much! everything means so much!

write me a letter and i'll write you back next week
i'll write a song about things when i can't speak

everything means so much! everything means so much!

and i once stopped talking cause i didn't wanna be a liar
take the truth take the truth take the truth seriously

and nothing truly bad has ever happened to me
but everyone i love is a part of my body

everything means so much! everything means so much!

and i'm sorry that i didn't respond when you told me you loved me
it didn't seem right to put that into words

everything means so much! everything means so much!

and life is a movie you can watch in heaven when you're dead
Track Name: perfect day
potato chips and ice cream why can' this be a perfect day
there are ghosts that haunt the living we try to scare the ghosts away

things that happened affect the way i talk to you now
thing i did affect how we don't really talk anymore

everything is endless everything contains an end
maybe it would have been better if i let you be my friend

things get lost when we try to hard to find them
it's not so bad we're still learning how to try
things can change and it's nice to be reminded
it's not so bad maybe there are perfect days in store
Track Name: go home
finding funny ways to waste sunny days i should try a bit harder
nights last extra long hard to keep putting on a smile when i don't really mean it

if i went out i'd just wanna go home

am i missing out what is life about i should be out in the sun
can i take a break is this a mistake i don't miss anybody

if i went out i'd just wanna go home
Track Name: heart beat
i get so excited when you're around
and i thought i heard your heartbeat
but it was just my heartbeat

i've been having daydreams
i think of you and i have trouble concentrating
i should be concentrating

how can i know how you're feeling?

i wear a watch with a second hand so i can check my pulse
i'm still alive although there are times when my heart beats faster
i thought i heard your heartbeat
but it was just my heartbeat
Track Name: i'm fine
i don't wanna tell you why i'm crying
it seems too cliche
laugh at myself
can't take anything too seriously

ask me how i'm doing i'm fine

i don't wanna tell you how i'm feeling
but i also kinda do
guess it depends
on if you wanna hear it too

ask me how i'm doin i'm fine
Track Name: all my friends
i called you up to tell you i was ok
the bus went by i waited in the rain
you laughed and said i looked so annoyed
when i told you that i was hung up on a crush on a boy

kevin we talk almost all the time
you say i deserve someone who'll make up their mind
we work the door at sajia's show
i hang out at your work all day
the coolest thing about him is that i like him you say

you call me in the middle of this song
reminding me there's nothing wrong with me
Track Name: moon
i just wanna talk about the moon w you
something in the sky
i just wanna be in the same room as you
letting out a sigh!

ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!

i just wanna tell you what i've been up to
what is on my mind

ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!

maybe if you wanted to then i would too

mmmmmmmmmmm
Track Name: i'll be the water and you'll be the water
i don't need to find my way back home
take it with me wherever i go
there is the ocean, salt and foam
i'll dive under freeze me to the bone

you be the water
and i'll be the water

we'll take bets and you won't let me win
we'll be here but we'll know where we've been

you be the sand
and i'll be the sand

i have this fantasy
i have this daydream
that when we're together we're part of the same thing
Track Name: think of who you always wanted to be
let's believe in space
we don't need to breathe to live
we don't need the air in our lungs

don't believe in lies
you will never feel safe in them
you will always gasp for air

you are not alone
things you've had to learn by doing
things you've had to learn the hard way

think of who you always wanted to be
think of who you never wanted to be

take care of yourself
you deserve a place among the stars
you deserve a place among angels

it's getting colder outside
i turn the heat up and stay in at night
i put my hand out the window

there are different ways to be happy
this could be a way to be happy
