Track Name: The Year, Split
The year split with the heat as well
The leaves fell with courage and color
The days long set as short suns
The hours turned with something more

I remember the way you looked
I remember the way I was this time then
I stood against the wall and slid down
I took tickets for you before we knew when

It would end
Knitting a scarf, watching a screen
Figured us out
I had still so much to see

We were young
Taking our time, looking around
Growing like trees
Falling like leaves

You told me just go along
You said don’t be long alone please
You made what was said fit in
You left some space open, just not for me anymore

So here we are in life separately
So I look your way right now always
So perhaps I decided differently
So what if I am constantly thinking

It had to end
Knitting a scarf, watching a screen
Figured us out
I had much to see

We are young
Taking our time, looking around
Growing like trees
Falling like leaves
Track Name: Chasing Tornados
I went on a journey for 7 days, 30 nights
Well I'm okay I'm alive, yeah I'm alive
but I will tell you if you enter a storm
be warned you weren't born to take flight
but anyway you take flight

I went chasing two tornados
didn't know they would show up
to take me from my live
not once, not once, but twice

I'm not one to make mistakes
But this road is headed their way
and I must go, to go through
let the wind take me up, up and away

They try to combine together
but they pull apart, pull apart
Till they have more than one defining feature
they're just two flying twisters




I could sing you both a song
to follow you deep into your dreams
where your minds could take flight
and your souls, your souls can rest at ease

I went chasing two tornadoes
Didn't know they would show up
to take me from my life
not once, not once, but twice

and when you wake up I'll singing still
I'll be playing still
You both must remember your not the only storms
you better be prepared for me
and no i don't think you'll be prepared for me

I went chasing two tornados
didn't know they would show up
to take me from my live
not once, not once, but twice
Track Name: If I Was Bob Dylan
If I was Bob Dylan
I would write a new song every day
If I could be your Bob Dylan
I would speak to you in metaphor always

If I was Bob Dylan
You would be at my café all day
If I could be your Bob Dylan
I would never have to let you in
No you’d already be inside here with me

If I was Bob Dylan
Drugs and alcohol would of set free
If I could be your Bob Dylan
I would never have to admit my mistakes

If I was Bob Dylan
I could do anything I wanted on stage
If I could be your Bob Dylan
Oh yes you would cheer
Oh yes would be right here screamin’ for me

If I was Bob Dylan
Flowers would bloom no matter what time of year
If I could be your Bob Dylan
I’d be sure do enough to keep you here

If I was Bob Dylan
Time would have be able to erase itself
But If I was Bob Dylan
There would be no songs about you
There would be no songs about the way that we were
Only if I was Bob Dylan
Track Name: How Could I?
How Could I?
Watch you sleep
With hands gripped tight all night

In our heads
Was the war of what we truly meant
Versus what was ever known

So It was
A double sunrise for both of us
Till the mirror split apart

How could I
How Could I do this any better
How could I

I meant well
When I reached the top and rang the bell
Which you heard even through your dark

Now you know
You were never really as far as you go
Though travel got you here

So lets both do this
Agree to what we always dismissed
In silence we’re better friends

How could I
How Could I do this any better
How could I
