Track Name: Almost People
Waiting isn't real life
But you know what that feels like
My love, my love
Penny's always in the air
Watch it floating everywhere
But love, but love

The precious moments I could spend by your side
I gave away
To him one day
We flew away

Almost a lover
Almost a mother
Almost a fairytale that almost came true
Almost a family
Almost, but then he
Swept me off my feet
With all the universe to see
Swept me off to all where and when
But I was one of the almost people back then

Now I have you by my side
Nothing's ever felt this right
This love, this love
Strange adventures run our lives
But they don't matter, just that I'm
Your love, your love

The precious moments I could spend by your side
I'll give away
To you this day
Let's fly away

Almost a lover
Almost a mother
Almost a fairytale that almost came true
Almost a family
Almost, but then he
Swept me off my feet
With all the universe to see
Swept me off to all where and when
But I was one of the almost people back then

And I don't wanna be the girl who waited
The girl who waited for far too long
Until you came along

Because waiting isn't real life
But you know what that feels like
My love, my love
Penny drops, about time too
Choice is made, I know who
I love, who I love
Track Name: Falling
I see you smiling and I don't breathe
Your lips are moving, all I know is it feels right
It doesn't matter what you're saying
Because I understand the meaning every time

This doesn't feel at all like losing control
But my knees are going weak

I'm falling,
I'm falling
But is it falling
When you catch me
You catch me every time

I used to stay where life was so safe
I was afraid of reaching out where hearts could break
But I wanna take a chance now
Cause with your steady hand you show me I'm okay

I've always been afraid of heights
But I'll take this leap of faith

I'm falling,
I'm falling
But is it falling
When you catch me
You catch me every time

And I'll find no answers tonight
I'll find no reasons why
Why love is irrational, terrifying, wonderful

Love is falling
Falling
But is it falling
When you catch me
You catch me every time I'm falling
Falling
But is it falling
When you catch me
You catch me every time
Track Name: River
I've never been too good with words or explaining what I mean
But you seem to have me figured out, so I'll smile and just breathe
I love how you can take control but still trust me with your life
I know it can't be perfect, but it's all almost right

But I know that you can't stay forever
And I'm finding out that when we're together
I'm loving you, trusting you
Though some instincts tell me not to
But then I'm swept away by the current of your river
I'm swept away by the current of your river
River

Standing on this rooftop with your hand so close to mine
I'm not used to telling secrets, when I've got one on my mind
Running shoes, a romantic view and of course an evening dress
You lean in for a kiss, your heartbeat on my chest

But I know that you can't stay forever
And I'm finding out that when we're together
I'm loving you, trusting you
Though I'm not accustomed to
But then I'm swept away by the current of your river
I'm swept away by the current of your river
River

And when you have to leave,
You can take this song with you
I'll slip it into your pocket for you to find
On some sad and lonely night
So you can think of me
Like I always think of you

But just send me a message and I'll come running to your side
Cause it feels like I've lived so long
But it's only when I'm with you I feel alive
I can see our future like a history book page
But we'll just take it night by night, and then day by day

Cause I know that you can't stay forever
And I'm finding out that when we're together
I'm loving you, trusting you
And I know you feel it too
But then I'm swept away by the current of your river
I'm swept away by the current of your river
River
Track Name: Where You Go
I can hear you moving
Downstairs the floorboards creak
One more night you can't sleep again

You've got things on your mind
Secrets I've yet to find out
But they don't matter right now

You try to hide the pain in your eyes
But I've learned to see through your smile
So go on and run, I'll be right there beside you
And I want you to know

Where you go, where you go, I'll go too
Nothing can keep me from loving you
I'll build a bridge made of faith and the truth
That nothing can keep me from loving you

You say I made you a better man,
Broken clay molded by helping hands
I help you stay grounded

I hope that you know that
You changed my whole world
Turned it upside down, wouldn't have it any other way

You've shown me so many wonderful things
Love to live life wild and free
So used to loneliness, but not since the day we met
You're not alone anymore

Where you go, where you go, I'll go too
Nothing can keep me from loving you
I'll build a bridge made of faith and the truth
That nothing can keep me from loving you

Where you go, where you go, I'll go too
Nothing can keep me from loving you
I'll build a bridge made of faith and the truth
That nothing can keep me from loving you
Track Name: A New Adventure
You stand there in your suit and tie
Always so impeccably dressed
You look great to me but you swear
Inside you're a total mess

Waves wash sand from our toes
Grey skies ask "who knows"
What'll happen to us next

Our footprints in the sand
Won't last the night
But I still know who I am
And I'll be by your side
Doesn't matter where we are
Cause we're together
And we can face the future
It's just a new adventure

I know there'll be things we don't want
Making our house their home
Mortgage bills, taxes still on the table
Can't run away or say no

There are things we can't choose
But I'll always pick you
The rest doesn't matter

Our footprints in the sand
Won't last the night
But I still know who I am
And I'll be by your side
Doesn't matter where we are
Cause we're together
And we can face the future
It's just a new adventure

Give me your hand and I'll give you my heart
Give me your hand and I'll give you my heart
Give me your hand and I'll give you my heart

You stand there in your suit and tie
Always so impeccably dressed
Track Name: Overflowed (bonus track - demo)
You have the deepest eyes I’ve ever known
I could be lost forever if I stare too long
They’re scared of the future
And haunted by the past
But right here in this moment

Like water racing on my shore
Washing over me like no one could before
Each touch of your lips shatters soul and skin
I’m a river overflowed, overflowed
Overflowed with your love

Your hands cup my face like you’re afraid I’ll disappear
Be blown away by the winds of time and change and all those things
Like your fingers would try to catch me
And I’d just float away

Like water racing on my shore
Washing over me like no one could before
Each touch of your lips shatters soul and skin
I’m a river overflowed, overflowed
Overflowed with your love

And each piece of you that you give to me
I lock in a box of treasured memories
Sunk down to the bottom of the sea

Like water racing on my shore
Washing over me like no one could before…
