Track Name: 20&22 (Cruise)
I remember when you came in for your interview
You had me at a loss of words when you came into view
I wanted to walk around just to bump into you
We both young you 20 and I’m just 22

I know you being funny when you saying that i’m old
and that I’m weak, that’s how I caught you like the common cold
But if I’m weak, why do you say you wanna fight me?
Do you mean that, or are you just saying that you like me?

I’d’ve been down
And Hell I am down
Maybe I could come see you
Whenever I’m back in town
Maybe we could hang out
With none of your friends around
Over seventeen hundred miles
And you still make me smile

I’m not tryna pressure you
That’s not what I do
I’m just only tryna say
Maybe I like you
I know i’m coming left field
Hella out the blue
And if you don’t feel the same way
That’s Cool

Cause you 20
I’m 22
I’ve got a long way
so I’mma just cruise
Maybe we’ll have something never
or something soon
but I’ve got a long way
So I’mma just cruise (cruise) (x2)

once bitten, twice shy
do really look like I’m the kind of guy
who would let an opportunity by ?
i don’t wanna complicate or miscommunicate, i

only wanna have some fun, shake n roll the dice
only wanna take a chance, don’t take my advice
i don’t wanna disrespect, don’t just try to be nice
romantic pressure’s telling us to plan out a whole life
but i don’t think i'm really ready for a husband or wife

But ain’t it funny
I find it funny too
That after all the trouble
I still wanna trouble you

Already know I can’t
So what’s the point of telling you
I’m taking down my hair to hide behind
And hide from you

I’m blushing ear to ear
Really that’s all I can do
I thought that I was brave
but I can’t even make a move

And we’re not even grown
So much is still unknown
So let’s just take a second
Slow the pace
Change the tone

Cause you 20
I’m 22
I’ve got a long way
so I’mma just cruise
Maybe we’ll have something never
or something soon
but I’ve got a long way
So I’mma just cruise (cruise) (x2)

But ain’t it funny
I find it funny too
That after all the trouble
I still wanna trouble you

Already know I can’t
So what’s the point of telling you
I’m taking down my hair to hide behind
And hide from you

I’m blushing ear to ear
Really that’s all I can do
I thought that I was brave
but I can’t even make a move

And we’re not even grown
So much is still unknown
So let’s just take a second
Slow the pace
Change the tone
Track Name: A Summer With You
oh so cool and calm
put a mask on when i fall
you don’t need it all,
‘cause you never did

our chests rise and fall,
hiding in the bathroom stall
we’re no fun at all
if you’re pushing daisies underneath us,
no one gets it no one gets us

i can’t recall the last time i could sleep and close my eyes
a summer with you — changes everything
don’t think i’ll tell you how you make me feel like i’m alive
feel materialized
can’t look you in the eyes

the street lights run together
but we’re running free, untethered

what if this summer came to stay
came to stay forever

valentine
you make me feel like
i could melt away in the
summertime

so happy i could die

fall asleep
beneath the shade
on hotter days
for night-time energy

the only kind we need

my soul heaved and ached
seeing autumn permeate
everything i lived for
all the things i adored

the leaves fell with your smile
tears and snow and stomach bile
Why can’t you stay a perfect memory
like those summer days?
stay free and wild

i count the days that i have spent alone, desensitized
that summer with you — it changed everything
they said i’d get used to the snow after it fell a while
i don’t believe them, you can’t believe them

my biggest fear has surfaced
and clearly gone unnoticed
what if spring never came
and the trees remained snow-capped
forever
Track Name: Out There
otherworldly child
seaside fires beguiled
and all the wild
things you never got the chance to see

make amends
soon, we’ll ascend
did you not intend
for such a bitter end?

ooh
cherried lips and lonely eyes, you’re
glued
your gaze is fixed, without conflict, kid

are you that hopeless?
don’t even know what hope is
see you admire all the stars that we’re approachin'
oh won’t you miss home?
did you say “i don’t know

they left me alone
help me find my true home”

Are you that thoughtless?
you're leaving behind all this
don’t you have a family, what you think their thoughts are on this?
why won’t you miss home?
did you say “I don’t know

They left me alone
earth ain't my true home”

(spoken)
phasers set to stun
never come across an earthling
quite like this one
abducting fool’s gold, but kidnapping the sun
now we’re both on the run

You shouldn’t be so eager
The task was meager,
but now I’d say you’re giving me a fever
I’m concerned
what might I learn
if it’s here for which you yearn

(sung)
ooh
the mire of earth abandons hope in
you
you can’t be sho you’ll like it here, tho

are you that hopeless
don’t even know what hope is
see you admire all the planets we’re encroaching
i think you’ll miss home
actin like i don’t know

"they left me alone
help me find my true home"

are you that doubtless
aren’t you afraid you’ll doubt this
most humans cling to life back home,
but you're about this
maybe i don’t know
what it’s like for you back home

i saw you first though,
looking up from my window
Track Name: Water Will
the sun came up without protest
but, oh star, i digress
for i’m an exhausted temptress
bff’s with my mattress

waves roll in, waves roll out
and i’m swimmin - no i’m drownin in a sea of doubt
yeah i’m just fine getting by
apathy preached to kill the time

and yet you try - try to convey
no change just stasis
lost in old painful places
just can’t encase it can’t erase it
everyday just one way
never been so okay

find what you love
cripple it never let it get away
keep it in a mason jar in the basement
vehicles aren’t great placement when you’re
writing party invitations
hiding criminal traces

find what you love
so dull preferably faceless
locked away behind cracked glass cases
memories of what fear replaces

don’t quit, don’t waste this

the rousing pulse, the beating heart
oh how it stops, oh how it starts
and every little thing
to hope and love must cling

the lungs corrode, the breathing stops
sticky sweet like soda pop
comes running out of you
what have i done to you

i took his teeth, took them for me
i stole the sun up from the sky
i stole the love, up from the earth
i ate it whole for all that’s worth

i plucked her womb from certain doom
i stood alone in a waiting room, hating you
but the at the same time needing to
forgive you
for what you put me through

find what you love
savor it never let it get away
keep it in a place in your heart, don’t replace it
prefer to use something tasteless, baseless
just to avoid speculations
hiding criminal traces

find what you are
so bold hiding all of your faces
locked away behind cracked glass cases
memories of what fear replaces

give up, embrace it
