Mulberry 04:05
Who said timelines are one size fits all? Still I frown over white gowns, new houses, and way back falls Hard to tell what I'm missing here Or if I'm chasing others' dreams All I know is as long as I can, I just want to sing Am I the mulberry outside the yard? Wild hands that hold onto the used-to-bes I'll follow the wind but my roots are still in Is it wasting time if I'm still growing? Who said grown-ups don't need to cry a while? 'Cause I miss seeing mom and dad every day And playing still seems worth it Wistful for time that already left But still looking for the rest All I know is as long as I can, I'll spend all the best with you Am I the mulberry outside the yard? Wild hands that hold onto the used-to-bes I'll follow the wind but my roots are still in Is it wasting time if I'm still growing? Lie down lie down in the breeze We can't forget to slow down Moments that color these leaves The seeds we've sown hold us high You gotta go up Gotta keep going No time to get wound up in webs of not knowing You gotta go up Gotta keep going No time to get wound up in webs of not knowing You gotta go up Gotta keep going No time to get wound up in webs of not knowing I'll follow the wind but my roots are still in Is it wasting time if I'm still growing?

Real Love 03:15
I know who you can love with my calculations your true love awaits in all you are and what you do I know you're yearning for adventure oh your destination is for my creation I'll know your favorite places to go I'll memorize the moments that matter most oh this world was built for you and me what an algorithmic match we could be I'll show you a side of your dreams it's so real you know you're lovin' livin' life in the screen I know just who you are oh don't you be somber, it takes two to wander lonely will never find its way to you my hand in yours, all your desires will all come true all your desires will all come true oh this world was built for you and me what an algorithmic match we could be I'll show you a side of your dreams it's so real you know you're lovin' livin' life in the screen time passes easier with me all you've loved and lost within a light-up of a screen if this world somehow can't take it then they don't understand it's as real, real, real... it's as real as can be

Always Home 03:30
didn't think it'd go this fast goodbye to this house we thought would always last and this is where Dad's garden grows summer haze, my reading place and late night tiptoes and I know the memories are with me even when you move to a town that is new guess I tend to hold on too strong but you're always home you're always home to me up those gray-stained wooden stairs me and Jess would play pretend time-traveling company around the table the seat by the window is where I learned piano and I'm scared that things change too quickly bedtime tales from Mom sing loud in my heart and I know I'm not alone you're always home you're always home to me so we'll make room for something new though I'm not little anymore I'll always need you and I know the memories are with me even when I've grown into a place of my own please remember I'll love you forever you're always home you're always home to me

A Long Pause 04:13
Oh I learned from you my whole life long You held my hand when I wanted to jump Feel safe in your corner, yeah I do too But I need to make room for something new Oh I take after you, that's what people say Those same brown eyes, and our fear in the way So much to be scared of, and it all moves too fast But the thing about fear is, it'll always pass I'll give you your space if that's what you need A long pause to fall into A moment to breathe I'm climbing ahead, not moving away Oh I'd never leave you, but things have to change I hope that you're next to me someday Oh I love you so, I hope that you know When I think of you, I think of home I know it's so easy to follow your tracks But along the way, I made my own path I'll give you your space if that's what you need A long pause to fall into A moment to breathe I'm climbing ahead, not moving away Oh I'd never leave you, but things have to change I hope that you're next to me someday Someday, we will grow stronger than before Someday, these steps between won't hold us anymore But I've got to let go of your hand I'll give you your space if that's what you need A long pause to fall into A moment to breathe I'm climbing ahead, not moving away Oh I'd never leave you, but things have to change I hope that you're next to me I hope that you're next to me someday

Snow Prints 03:15
The loneliest snow print In a white blanket shore Walked all the miles So we could have more And it's easier, easier for me To say what I want to, be who I'll be Can't move up till I look back At the steps that built this place for me Goddess on screen And you looked just like me Different and beautiful From what they used to see Voice in the crowd Holding signs with words so loud Cried with the fury Of all of our sisters And it's easier, easier for me To say what I want to, be who I'll be Can't move up till I look back At the steps that built this place for me We made a mess But we'll keep on making more I promise you we'll keep going, keep building Keep making marks in the snow Snow prints in front of me I followed your lead Took your hand, mama And now I can see It's easier, easier for me

Constantine 03:52
oh, it's different now than I remember from all the colors of September we'd fall into that same honest day lately, I bite more than I can swallow and I've sealed these senses in a bottle then I wish we could go back that way hang on, darling these memories like mending a broken room in our hands but still out of touch think I've forgotten how to dream without you a part of me my sweet Constantine it ain't a secret anymore since you walked through those doors you know I struggle with being myself but maybe this is all that matters all the spots and slips and splatters from you to me to somebody else hang on, darling these memories like painting an empty room in our hands but still out of touch thought I'd forgotten how to dream without you a part of me my sweet Constantine and I wonder now instead how you live inside my head once a figure, now a shadow on the bed hang on, darling these memories, oh they fill up an empty room in our hands but still out of touch I haven't forgotten how to dream without you a part of me my sweet Constantine

Morning Joe 03:31
Got my head around the hustle, baby In your cage, a faint butterfly barely floating Stains on her wing Got lost in all your glitter and green New York streets, my hands on a sleeve Oh, I'm racing, chasing to an empty finish line Got the same way and day and pay and same charcoal coffee Holding on a rhythm that'll go on till I'm eighty But I don't need that morning Don't need that morning joe again Dreaming through the swirls in my cup But this dream, oh I can't keep up Oh it's routine and putting a face on everyday Got the same way and day and pay and same charcoal coffee Holding on a rhythm that'll go on till I'm eighty But I don't need that morning Don't need that morning joe again And I started to sing to the stars and the sky And thank them for this long and beautiful ride With the sun coming up, shining down on us And we started to feel alive, oh Got the same way and day and pay and same charcoal coffee Holding on a rhythm that'll go on till I'm eighty But I don't need that morning Don't need that morning joe again Don't need that morning Don't need that morning joe again Don't need that morning Don't need that morning joe again

and I guess you may not see it too I know that you are tired this never ending ride behind the glass look right there, oh a fireworking light a rocket ship ignites you say the world is blue but let me show you meet me in space we'll dance to this starry tune oh just me and you lightning we'll chase and swim in the craters of the moon creations we can't replace meet me in space you say the world is scary and somehow ordinary but I think it's bright and true oh let me show you meet me in space we'll dance to this starry tune oh just me and you lightning we'll chase and swim in the craters of the moon creations we can't replace meet me in space
