Track Name: Balloons in the Sky
You and me
We were walking outside by the sea
Can't you see
Everything is too weird to believe
And where do we go when we die
Do we float away like balloons in the sky
Or do we just disappear
Evaporate into the atmosphere
I don't know
Which way I should or I shouldn't go
Is it so
We fall asleep under a rainbow
And where do we go when we die
Do we float away like balloons in the sky
Or do we just disappear
Evaporate into the atmosphere
And where do we go when we die
Do we float away like balloons in the sky
Or do we just disappear
Evaporate into the atmosphere
Da da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da da da da
Track Name: Meet Me at the Swings
I've never been here before
How did I get washed up on this shore
This sort of thing is a chore
Boring!
All of the clothes that you wore
And all the puzzle pieces I am torn
Will there be a reward for us
Let's pretend we could go back again
The sunshine would never reach our eyes
I wrote my name on a door
Is this the place that I've been looking for
I put my ear to the floor
Where are you
Is your name Ernie or Bert
I wore a yellow and a green striped shirt
And for whatever it's worth
I'm sorry
Let's pretend we could go back again
The sunshine would never reach our eyes
Let's pretend we could go back again
The sunshine would never reach our eyes
I believe in every single thing
Come down from your tree
And meet me at the swings
Track Name: Saturday Socks
Everyone around you is just like a falling star
Everyone around you is a setting sun
And every time that I step outside
And every time that I close my eyes
I can't help but wonder if today will be my last
Happiness surrounds me as I put on my socks
And every time that I step outside
And every time that I close my eyes
Track Name: Cow Clouds
Look at all the cows
Up there in the clouds
Asked how you had been
You were silent five minutes
You did not change the subject at all
Rain on the parade
Forget the plans we made
Balloons in the trees
Took my picture before a sneeze
Sent it to everybody I know
Welcome to lamesville
I don't know how but I will
Get home
Track Name: Every Time You Cry
I find it very odd
That you believe in God
Every time you cry
I'm gonna ask your mom
To go to the prom
Every time you cry
I find it very odd
I don't believe in God
Every time you cry
Track Name: Boo & Sparklemittens
Whatever happens happens right
Then it's the story of your life
And how are you doing these days
Could you be any other way
Boo and sparklemittens
You are cute as kittens
Try to recall a memory
Before the time you were conceived
And could it easily be said
That is what it's like when you're dead
Boo and sparklemittens
You are cute as kittens
Track Name: Up All Night
When the summer finds you all alone
And you've got nowhere else to go
Your face pressed up against the window
Looking out on a town you don't know
Down the street a bright light you follow
Hoping it' s a UFO
Everything I see is aglow
And the sounds are a distant echo
You were always right
I could never stay up all night
Since you ran away from your home
Walk around and mostly you roam
You pretend you're a garden gnome
On the other end of a payphone
Track Name: My Heart's in the Dumpster
I know there's someone for everybody
Try to cheer while on my way to the sea
Oh oh oh
My hearts in the dumpster
Oh oh oh
You were there too
Oh oh oh
Hide under the covers
Oh oh no oh no oh no oh no oh no oh no
Waiting at the bus stop on Saturday
Have the colors changed while we were playing safe
My hearts in the dumpster
Oh oh oh
You were there too
Oh oh oh
Hide under the covers
Oh oh no oh no oh no oh no oh no oh no
Hide my face behind a magazine
All the words I read will put me right to sleep
My hearts in the dumpster
Oh oh oh
You were there too
Oh oh oh
Hide under the covers
Oh oh no oh no oh no oh no oh no oh no
Dot dot dot
Da da dot dot
Track Name: Fingers Crossed
Under your wing
Arrange for my release
You cut my leash
And then you set me free
And I looked back at you
And you looked at me too
On a Saturday in May
Why yes you may
No matter what they say
So I screamed yay
And then I ran away
And I looked back at you
And you looked at me too
On a Saturday in May
Where are you at
Have you seen me I'm a cat
My heart attacks
Fingers crossed behind my back
And then you set me free
And I looked back at you
And you looked at me too
On a Saturday in May
Track Name: Our Dreams
Why oh why did we come all this way to say good-bye
Because our dreams don't come true
But we thought maybe they do
And I had become something that I truly did despise
I had become just like you
The only one I talked to
We decided to build a kingdom made out of sand
We thought it'd last forever
Probably have known better
Cause when the tide rolled in
It laid waste to our well laid plans
Now there's nothing left to do
For the likes of me and you
And so I let a bird into the house and slept all day
And in that very evening
Is when I saw you leaving
We always said if we find success we'll run away
But then we become sober
Before the night was over
