Long drive, an endless night / Open road, no end in sight / Only sky and moonlight / Destination still unknown / We may be lost, but not alone / ‘Cause all I need is in your eyes But you say time is in our way / ‘Cause everything will change in the years to come / So much left is still unknown / As we travel down this road / And it's just too soon to call you home But two years from now / I could be the one you run to / When the water’s high and you’re feeling low / When you’re scared or missing home / Two years from now / Maybe we’ll have figured it out / A sense of who we are and where we’re going / ‘Cause we’re so far from knowing how / Two years from now So I’ll keep singing while we write / The words, the stories, of our lives / And wait until the time is right / ‘Cause someday, somewhere down the line / When souls are grown and stars align / Maybe I could call you mine But you say time is in our way / ‘Cause everything will change in the years to come / So much left is still unknown / As we travel down this road / And it's just too soon to call you home Two years from now / I could be the one you run to / When the water’s high and you’re feeling low / When you’re scared or missing home / Two years from now / Maybe we’ll have figured it out / A sense of who we are and where we’re going / ‘Cause we’re so far from knowing how But that’s a choice I am not ready to make / And these are words I wasn’t ready to say / But you, you, you—I can’t bear to lose / And I love you too much to ask you to wait for… Two years from now / I could be the one you run to / When the water’s high and you’re feeling low / When you’re ready to come home / Two years from now maybe we’ll have figured it out / A sense of who we are and where we’re going / So promise that you’ll come back around / Two years from now

Close to You 04:13
Winter came and went, spring filled the air / And when the sun came out you were standing there / Took a while for me to realize / It was me you were seeing with those deep blue ocean eyes Under the summer sun you whispered in my ear / That as the seasons change you'd still be here / You asked me to let you in, I did / ‘Cause there's no one I'd rather spend a single moment with And oh, it's in the way you move / Something that I could get used to for forever / And I'm still a mystery to be solved by you / Can I get close to you? Then the fall arrived in changing trees / And our hearts they fell like autumn leaves / He said it took no time to realize / It was me he was falling for behind these big brown eyes And oh, it's in the way you move / Something that I could get used to for forever / And I'm still a mystery to be solved by you / Can I get close to you? A little bit closer / Ooo / We’ll make it through the seasons, with you ‘Cause oh, it's in the way you move / Something that I could get used to for forever / And I'm still a mystery to be solved by you / Can I get a little bit closer? / And oh, it's in the way you move / Something that I could get used to for forever / And I'm still a mystery to be solved by you / Can I get close to you? Can I get close to you?

I Was Her 04:19
Sittin’ in a stranger’s home I don't recognize myself / Where did the time go? Was I someone else? / I walk down the hallways, but nothing’s familiar / A whisper reminds me I'm home / But I don't know Lookin’ through a stranger's photographs and memories / Seems to me she was a happy girl / Raised in a house that was built from the ground up with love of a family / When did the present turn against me? You say all that's left is a memory / But I still remember that girl / And the lock that you gave me I buried away / But I won't forget those words / ‘Cause I was her Starin’ through a stranger’s window when suddenly / Who she was comes flooding back to me / Her time isn't over, but it's stranger getting older / Guess I never thought I would too / Will I ever find my way back to you… Say all that's left is a memory / But I still remember that girl / And the lock that you gave me / I buried away / But I won't forget those words She had no reason to complain / No reason to change / But she did somehow, someway / Believed in ‘meant to be’ / But she learned there's no guarantee when it comes to fate / And something changed Sittin’ in a stranger’s home / I don’t recognize myself / When did I become someone else? You say all that's left is a memory / But I still remember that girl / And the lock that you gave me / I buried away / But I won't forget those words / ‘Cause I was her / I was her / I was her / I was her

Into the wild / Into the deep I was waiting in the shallow end / Still afraid to dive in again / ‘Cause I had seen this heart break enough / But you came in just before I gave up Round we go, the earth is spinning / And the ground beneath my feet is just beginning to move a little closer to you / There’s a wind, a rain, a storm a-comin’ / All I know is I’ll be overcomin’ anything / Long as I’m next to you Running into the wild like we’re never coming back / Chasing into the deep without leaving any tracks / And we can’t go back / And we won’t go home / With just one look I lost control / Running into the wild / Now we’re never letting go And where I stood was all I’d known before / But if I could I’d go far beyond the shore / You say ‘come with me, let me show you everywhere’ / So I say, ‘I’ve got the time, and you can take me there’ / Round we go, the earth is spinning / And the ground beneath my feet is just beginning to move a little closer to you / There’s a wind, a rain, a storm a-comin’ / All I know is I’ll be overcomin’ anything / Long as I’m next to you Running into the wild like we’re never coming back / Chasing into the deep without leaving any tracks / And we can’t go back / And we won’t go home / With just one look I lost control / Running into the wild / Now we’re never letting go This love is spreading like a wildfire / Burning through my veins / And every touch takes me higher / Let’s run this love… Into the wild like we’re never coming back / Into the deep without leaving any tracks / And we can’t go back / And we won’t go home / With just one look I lost control / Running into the wild now were never letting go / Into the deep / And we’re losing all control (This love) / Into the wild / Now we’re never going home

Collide 04:22
If I could take a photograph of this feeling here with you / I would / Capture every moment / Every moment here with you / If I could Oh Father Time / Turn the hourglass on its side / And let the sand settle for a while / So I can find / A way to memorize those eyes / And keep this moment in my mind When you and I collide… If I wrote poetry / I’d write a sonnet here for you / If I could / But all I have is melody / And a quiet longing for you / Will that do? Oh Father Time / Turn the hourglass on its side / And let the sand settle for a while / So I can find / A way to memorize those eyes / And keep this moment in my mind When you and I collide / The world goes still / The streets are quiet / My mind goes silent for a while / When you and I… Kaleidoscope of colors turn back time / I’m trying to remember what it’s like / ‘Cause the world keeps spinning faster / Turning out its own disasters / And I'm trying to remember what it was like… Ah (You and I) / Ooo (Collide) / The world goes still / The streets are quiet / My mind goes silent for a while / When you and I / When you and I / When you and I collide

Fifteen weeks and I’m still down about you / I don’t feel free and I can’t sleep without you / Everyone said, ‘things will get better on your own’ / Well if that’s true I must be crazy Sixteen weeks and it feels like it’s been a year / I walk from room to room and forget what I’m doing here / Everyone said, ‘things will get better if you give it time’ / But I don’t feel that way I’ll make things take a different shape / I’ll make sure they don’t stay the same / This time, things will be different It’s been four months and I still feel like we’ve made plans for the weekend / I still expect to see your name light up my phone / Oh, it hurts to have you gone / Everyone said, ‘things will be better on your own’ I’ll make things take a different shape / I’ll make sure they don’t stay the same / This time, things will be different They’ll be different / I’ll look out for me this year / They’ll be different / I don’t you here / They’ll be different / I can put up my own fights / I can see the future and it’s looking bright It’s been some time, and I feel fine / I’ve almost forgotten what it’s like / I think I’ll be alright without you I’ll make things take a different shape / I’ll make sure they don’t stay the same / This time… I’ve got that view and it’s good / Things are looking up / I can see it’s true things will be better on my own

I’m on the corner of where I grew up and deciding if I should run / When will the world begin to turn for me? / Never satisfied with where I’m going / ‘cause I always grew up knowing what I wanted life to be / So will I ever just be happy being happy? I’m on the corner of 5th and Broadway / Waiting for someone to say ‘I see you’ / Can you hear me? / I’ll return / The promise is made for someday / To be back right here when one day / The lights can shine for me / Is looking forward being blind to love around me? Am I standing still / Waiting for life to finally begin / Chasing time until we get the chance to just let go? / Am I on my way / At least further than yesterday / Do we only have as long as love allows? / Surrounded only by my mind / Am I moving forward or wasting time just standing still 
I’m on the corner of Lake and Hennepin / Promised I'd go, but then again / Would it be so bad to stay? / Seems every path I take just leads doubt closer my way Am I standing still / Waiting for life to finally begin / Chasing time until we get the chance to just let go? / Am I on my way / At least further than yesterday / Do we only have as long as love allows? / Surrounded only by my mind / Am I moving forward or wasting time just standing still? / Still

Well it's funny / I don't seem to remember / Giving you an invitation to walk back in my life / I know / I swore I thought I remembered / To close the door for forever / But here you are tonight You started with ‘hello’ / You always were so original with your words / But let me stop you now / Don’t bother with your bows / I think you ought to know That he / he is anything but ordinary / He was the one who healed my heart / Yes I found a love extraordinary / He lit the fire for my new start / So what do you / What do you expect me to do? So you tell me / You tell me that you're alright / You say you're doing just fine / If that's the case then why / Must you, Continue to be so cruel? / The words you say they aren’t true / But you still take me for your fool We said our last goodbye / so can you tell me why you're still standing here? / You try to catch my eye / And savor one last time / But don't ya see I'm not there ‘Cause he / he is anything but ordinary / He was the one who healed my heart / Yes I found a love extraordinary / He lit the fire for my new start / So what do you / What do you expect me to do? / Darling I ain’t comin’ back… Ooo / Hey / Never comin’ back ‘Cause he / He is anything but ordinary / He was the one who healed my heart / Yes I found a love extraordinary / He lit the fire for my new start / So what do you / What do you expect me to do? / Darling I ain’t never, never comin’ back to you

Movin' On 03:37
Will you still love me if I go / Will you still let me call this place my home / Even if I choose the lonely road / Will you still love me if I go? Will you still hold me in your arms / And tell me anywhere’s never too far / Long as we’re looking at the same star / Will you still be the one to hold my heart? I’m not movin’ up, I’m movin’ on / But I won’t let go of you / You say ‘child be strong, this road is long’ / But a part of me will always be with you / and the heart in me will always come home to you And when the darkness brings out all my fears / and the light in me just disappears / I’ll think of all the love that led me here / and remember home is always near And while I’m on my way to who I’ll be / I’ll think of everything you did for me / Even though it meant setting me free / Know that who I am is ‘cause you believed. I’m not movin’ up, I’m movin’ on / But I won’t let go of you / You say ‘child be strong, this road is long’ / But a part of me will always be with you / and the heart in me is comin’ back home… If the road gets long, keep holdin’ on / If hope is gone, keep travelin’ on / And if the road gets long, keep holdin’ on / If hope is gone, keep travelin’ on I’m not movin’ up, I’m movin’ on / But I won’t let go of you / You say ‘child be strong, this road is long’ / But a part of me will always be with you / and the heart in me will always come home to you

Tonight 03:35
Ready, set, we’re going places / Hold your breath and don’t look back / Count the years in moments faded / Every smile, every laugh / Now the future’s ours for taking / And they’re asking who we’ll be / But tonight let’s run away and just escape reality Why don’t we leave our worries behind / Just you and I Tonight we’re free / Tonight we’re young / The world is ours / To be in love / Tonight we’re young (Tonight we’re young) If it’s time you need to borrow / Honey come along with me / Stop your worries of tomorrow / ‘Cause tonight’s reserved for you and me Why don’t we leave our worries behind / Just you and I Tonight we’re free / Tonight we’re young / The world is ours / To be in love / Tonight we’re young Ready to run / We’re ready to fly / Ready to leave this world behind / Sun’s comin’ down / We’re ready to rise / The world is ours for tonight We’re free / Tonight we’re young / The world is ours / To be in love / Tonight we’re free / Tonight we’re young / The world is ours / To be in love / Tonight we’re free / Tonight we’re young / So here’s to us / And here’s to love / Tonight we’re young
