Track Name: Close to You (Live)
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.
You said it took no time to realize—
It was me you were 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.
Come on, baby, yeah.
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?

(‘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 close to you?
Track Name: Two Years from Now (Live)
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.

(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,
But 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,
But 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.
Track Name: This Time, Things Will Be Different (Live)
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.
Woah, it hurts to have you gone.
Everyone said, “things will get 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.
Track Name: Standing Still (Live)
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.
Track Name: Monster (Live)
I’m getting sick of getting older,
Having to own all my mistakes.
Everything I want seems crazy,
All my fears feel so misplaced.

Run, run, run, run, run away is all I wanna do.
I need a different point of view.

I find it tricky to be honest,
Afraid of what people might say.
Gotta tell them what they wanna hear,
but I just get in the way.

Sh-sh-sh-sh, shy away is all I wanna do.
Gotta find a different way to get through.

If I didn’t wanna be happy so desperately,
Things would be easier for me.
If I didn’t wanna be happy so bad,
Then I wouldn’t be so sad.

I’m fed up with getting older,
I think I need some kind of escape.
Sometimes I feel like I’m a monster,
Sometimes I feel like I can’t relate.

Run, run, run, run, run away is all I ever do.
Now I’ve got nothing left to hold onto.

If I didn’t wanna be happy so desperately,
Things would be easier for me.
If I didn’t wanna be happy so bad,
Then I wouldn’t be so sad.
Track Name: Collide (Live)
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.

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.
