tell me your secret I’ve been wandering for way too long give me your spirit ‘cause it’s hiding in the air I’m walking on oh I am older now but I still wanna know what made you strong enough to leave alone oh, there’s something alive (2x) bring me the warrior oh I have sworn I’ve seen her here oh I don’t recognize your face but in your touch, I know it’s clear you are a hollow balloon yet heavier than my memory of you oh yes, it’s true oh, there’s something alive (2x) oh I am older now but I still wanna know what made you strong enough to leave alone oh, there’s something alive (5x)

I want you to go and pick out your favorite dress hold it to your chest 'cause you've been wanting to dance for a while I want you to know it's ok to be a mess don't need to hold your head up for the rest 'cause you so far were made to rise on your own pull it together, girl says the little voice inside your head days like this feel like they'll never end you're in charge of the chances that you'll stand or fall 'cause you got your favorite dress on I want you to see the world in amazing color take it with your heart and do your part to swing open each door I want you to be proud of where you came from it's a part of you like it's a part of me and together, we'll make up what could be pull it together, girl says the little voice inside your head days like this feel like they'll never end you're in charge of the chances that you'll stand or fall 'cause you got your favorite dress on there will be plenty telling you you gotta be this way but I see the light inside of you shining through the fabric in between pull it together, girl says the little voice inside your head days like this feel like they'll never end you're in charge of the chances that you'll stand or fall 'cause you got your favorite dress on oh you got your favorite dress on oh you got your favorite dress on

make a little, make a lot this room was made for two to choose and dream and build whatever we want to I'm making a little box for all our little things and you are smashing blocks together for our fancy red porch swing oh we pulled this from the ground and it'll break a time or two the knobs and screws will get kinda loose and the wood grows old with you but we won't stop fixing what's ours 'cause we built this with our hands the parts spread like a wing and we let the memory fly we'll take the old, and we'll take the new we'll take your two-year tablet too and they might say that we're crazy for keeping what they think is lost but the art has meaning well past then and finds the color when it fades again oh we pulled this from the ground and it'll break a time or two the hem will frail, then there's the nail but we'll bring it light till its fine to use but we won't stop fixing what's ours 'cause we built this with our hands oh we pulled this from the ground and it'll break a time or two the shelves will crack, its charm will stray but I'm glad for what it gives us too but we won't stop fixing what's ours 'cause we built this oh we built this oh we built this with our hands

we took the road, down past the ocean worried for winter above my lips brushed your smile, our feet dance ahead for strawberry mountain in the sky oh, forgive me if I get too tired thank you for making it all worth our while for strawberry mountain, we're coming for you we're making good time, we built all our tools we sleep in the art that we make the sound of your voice is pulling me through it shifts all the shadows away oh, I'll forgive you if you get too tired I'm here, just hold my hand tight as we run for strawberry mountain, we're coming for you you know it's something real when you can't stay away the trees will fall but I swear, I do it's magic I'm doing this with you oh, forgive us if we're getting tired thank you for making it all worth our while for strawberry mountain, strawberry mountain, strawberry mountain we're coming for you credits

Dog Walker 03:59
I’m a dog walker in New York City I take ‘em on a stroll along the only green I see we sleep at the movies and we get a bite to eat we roll ‘round the subway to the street I’m a dog walker in LA, baby we climb up to the Hollywood sign, and we cry out to the sea we send out letters to our friends atop the trees their quiet has us writing another tune don’t know where we’re going but we’ll keep singing till we do build far from here til we make it back to you I’m a dog walker in Nashville, TN we pour these words across the page, I think they’re pretty neat to play ‘em for the panelists and a screen that counts for me defining what it means to succeed don’t know where we’re going but we’ll keep singing till we do build far from here til we make it back to you I’m a dog walker in my own little street I lug my piano, and my sweet Sunny and though we have so far to go, so many dreams to meet I’ll sing these songs for you and for me
