Track Name: Seasonal Blues
No I don't want to go to the bar
I think I'll stay at home, where the pillows aren't far
And no I don't want to go uptown
In fact I feel pretty tired, I think I'll go and lay down

Cause I just wanna lay in my bed and play uke
Cause the winter is coming, it's making me blue
And the sun feels the same way,
She's going to bed early too

It's hard to get up when you're feeling so down
I think I'll stay at home, do some lazing around
You know I'd like to see my friends too,
Maybe they'll visit me in my room

Cause I just wanna lay in my bed and play uke
Cause the summer is over, and I still miss you
And the sun sympathizes
Cause she'll never get to see the moon
Track Name: Tree Song
I wish I were a tree, I'd grow so tall
that everyone around me would look so small
But then I think how sad I'd be to always be stationary
So then I think I'd rather be the ocean waving rythmically

I wish I were a tree, I'd shed my leaves
and every spring I'd become a new me
But then I think how sad I'd be when every year the birds leave me
So then I think I'd rather be the sky so they could never leave

I wish I were a tree, I'd drink sunlight
with every breathe I would bring the earth life
It makes me think how great it'd be to live for something more than me
So I still wish that I could be a tree
Track Name: Don't Say You Told Me So
I live a life with no regrets
I make no promises or bets
I'm sorry if I bother you
It isn't what I mean to do

And life's only lonely if you make it so,
and if you find yourself alone, don't say you told me so

I'd walk across the seven seas
Only to find new company
But I'd know even as I roamed
I'd always find my friends at home

Cause life's only lonely if you make it so
and if you find yourself alone, don't say you told me so

Don't say you told me so
and I won't say you are cold
Don't say you told me so
and I won't leave you alone
Track Name: Festy Love
I wanna find all of your birthmarks,
trace every one of your scars
I wanna touch every inch of your skin
then I'd start over and do it again

Cause I'm amazed by the maze that is you
I wanna know all your stories and your secrets too
I wanna know why you do what you do
Oh, I just wanna be with you

But it's just that weekend kind of lovin we had
I hardly know you at all and it makes me wanna know you so bad

I just wanna wake up in your arms at dawn
and know you held me all night long
Is that so wrong?

But it's just that weekend kind of lovin we had
I hardly know you at all and it makes me wanna know you so bad
Track Name: Gave It Away
I couldn't sleep, I lay awake
I couldn't keep those noisy thoughts of you at bay
If I could sleep like I need to
I know I'd dream only of you

You on that day
I had it all, gave it away
If I could do it all again
I know I'd be okay

Oh you told me that you love me
What a cruel, cruel lie
I find it strange you only love me
When you're telling me goodbye

The morning breaks, the softest light
Illuminates the room, and breaks the spell of night
My day is good, my smile is true
Cause I've got memories that I can keep of you

You on that day
I had it all, gave it away
If I could do it all again
I know I'd be okay

Oh you told me that you love me
What a cruel, cruel lie
I find it strange you only love me
When you're telling me goodbye
