Track Name: Solipsis
You’re of this earthly world
You’re anything but mundane
The words you’re murmuring,
In the context of the rain

At the speed of light
They travel through my brain
Couched in solipsism
And the love that I feign

Bring me home again
Bring me home again

You’re lashing out my friend
But there’s nothing you can do
There’s only circumstance
And the feelings you subdue

Year of the circus clown
And hour of the insane
So scared of what you’ll think
That I drown it in the rain

Bring me home again
Bring me home again

There’s a truth in the world
There’s an elephant in the room
There’s emotions of a girl
There’s six feet in a tomb
There’s the deeds that you do
There’s a road you don’t choose
There’s a bright and shining star
Exactly where you are

Bring me home again
Bring me home again
Track Name: Petals
Just let yourself be a girl
Even though they're messing with your world
Forget those questions of control
And be bold, and move slow

Love is a many petaled thing
She loves me, she loves me not
Sometime love will make you sing
She loves me a lot

See your reflection in the mirror
Hear the voices in your head
They are just your thoughts
Trust them, believe them

Chorus

You say you can’t go back
That you can’t break your own rule
And be a kid again
But I’d rather be a hypocrite
Than a fool
Track Name: Shooting Star
The books that you haven’t read
Went for a walk in your shoes
Just past the paperback highways
And the sunken canoes

Not much was there to speak of
Lemonade and a paper route
I wish there was some kind of dream where
You could keep dancing about

Tied to a shooting star
Burning a hole in the sky
You and I were so lost
I had to ask you why

Pleasure wasn’t enough to
Put a smile on your lover’s face
You told the truth but
your eyes lied

As it turns out even that was a lie
You though your act might grow wings
You caught me off my guard
Amazes me the way the wind stings

Chorus

I don’t know where you’ve been but
You know where I can be found
If you always follow what your heart is telling you
You’ll always be turning around

Chorus
Track Name: Ava
Hey there, I am on your side
And I’ll try to keep you satisfied

And when the wind blows
I will try to keep you from crying
And when the scars show
I will wait for you to give me a sign

Hey there, lying on your side
When you’re scared, I’ll be a place to hide

And when the sun shines
On this heart of mine I’ll let you in
And when it comes down
To the final bout I’ll let you win

Close your eyes now
And go to sleep
And when you wake up
You will have no fear

Ava stars shine for you
As sure as the sky so blue

And when I sing to you
I know you don’t understand a word I say
But feel my kisses
Land upon your brow as bright as day

Ava, you’re my little girl
And you know that you are the whole world

And when the sun shines
On this love of mine I’ll let you in
And when it comes down
To the final bout I’ll let you win
