Track Name: Sweet Anna
Don’t look so sad sweet Anna
Your magnolia white won’t fade
The smile on your face could carry me on for days
So don’t you fall away

You’ve spent a life out on the sea
With the pelicans and the seagulls and the Polaroid photography
Capturing glimpses of the waves and blueness of the days
So don’t you fall away

And I’ll never stop loving you
And I’ll never stop loving you

We’ve never been to the city
Never seen traffic like a parking lot
But we keep hopeful thoughts for the things that we don’t got
And it all falls away

And I’ll never stop loving you
And I’ll never stop loving you
Track Name: Blue Street
Well I’ve been riding on this train again
The rusty old wheels they turn and spin
Steam is shooting right through the roof
While the conductor’s whistle feels so aloof

And I would run all through the town
Covered in rain from my head to the ground
Just to see my high school sweet
Heart, that’s what she meant to me

Most of the time I’m feeling blue
Spending my time in the gray neighborhood
But today I’m feeling gray
And I’m on Blue Street anyway

The seeds have been sewn and the garden grown
Plants and trees coming from the lawn
The fountain shoots the water high
Up to the mountain, high in the sky

And Old Man Time is fading dim
Long in the tooth and wide in the grin
Holes in his shoes, lines on his skin
He’s breathing out and he is breathing in

Most of the time I’m feeling blue
Spending my time in the gray neighborhood
But today I’m feeling gray
And I’m on Blue Street anyway

We’ll grow old, our hair turns gray
But we’ll always have that summer day
Watching the colors, the pink and blue
Falling through the sky as I sat with you
Track Name: Kissing Rock
I-95 and I am driving down to Maryland
My heart is beating faster
With the thought of touching your skin

Thinking about how you smile big and how you sing off key
But that’s just one of the perks
Seeing your imperfections done so perfectly

Seeing your eyes gleam as I step out of the car
Watching you running faster into my arms
I hold you like we only have a minute to spend
But I’m hoping this night will never end

Time will stop
And time will go
At the kissing rock
We were 10 years old
Square dancing, romancing
You were my only care
Can I just ask you one question?
Will you complete my grand square?

I wrote your name all over my shoes
Just to show you that my love was true
You lived too far to keep it up
But now I’m back to reclaim my love

Driving down the road
Faster than I should go
Keep running my stop lights
Keep driving all night
The wheels spin
It all gets blurry
Everything except for you

Time will stop
And time will go
At the kissing rock
We were 10 years old
Square dancing, romancing
You were my only care
Can I just ask you one question?
Will you complete my grand square?


I loved you, I still do, I can’t imagine my life without you
Damn right, I mean grand right
Baby I’ll be your corner tonight
Track Name: Aurora
You lost yourself along the rusty old path called life
You knew it was wrong, but you didn’t know what was right
You took a little bit, but you gave some more
You were inspired by the heavens to the ocean floor

You watched the stars and you gazed up at the purple sky
Then you watched the meteors fly right by
You woke up in the middle of the crazy night
You didn’t know where you were, you never felt right

Aurora, Aurora
Little darling girl, living her own world
Aurora, Aurora
Just open up your eyes, let me see the world that lays inside

You tried to find a new sunrise
You tried to find a different moonlit sky
You tried to live out of your knapsack
And then you took a journey, but you came right back

Aurora, Aurora
Little darling girl, living her own world
Aurora, Aurora
Just open up your eyes, let me see the world that lays inside
