Track Name: Away We Happened
Would you be upset if I got lost in your eyes
They shine just like an early sunrise
You rocked my world it turned upside-down
And there's no freaking way I could possibly frown

When I'm with you things just aren't the same
Everything is so awesome and nothing is lame
You are the spark that set fire to my heart
I knew things were so different from the very start

Away we happened
Away we happened

You know how to make my day brighter
And righter and always a little lighter
'bout time I started wrapping up this song
If I kept going on, it would be so long

Away we happened
Away we happened
Track Name: Quite Like Her
She's got a way
Of getting stuck in my head
Between her and the world
I would choose her instead
I've never found another girl
Quite like her

She's got a smile
That can turn the night into day
I know she isn't perfect
But I love her anyway
I've never found another girl
Quite like her

She's so wonderful
I don't know why she chose me
I still don't have the words
That describe her beauty
I'm a lucky guy to have a girl
Quite like her
Track Name: Ever
I didn't hold back
I gave all I had
Didn't stop from telling you
The good and the bad

I tried so hard
To be good for you
I wanna help you feel
As happy as I do

Cuz I love you so much more than I ever thought I could

You're beautiful
It's so true
There really isn't
A girl quite like you

I haven't been me
I've felt so low
But with you there's no
place I wouldn't go

Cuz I wanna be the best man I ever thought I could be

Please forgive me
For what I've been
I'm so happy you're
My prettiest friend

I have hope
We'll be fine
We're new at this
No need to rush our time

And I love you so much more than I ever thought I could
Track Name: Takin' This Train
Take me out west to California
Leave my problems far behind
2000 miles can be quite the distance
But out of sight and out of mind

Takin' this train on outta here
It's time I left this place
I finally found a dream I'm gonna chase
Don't know what'll happen there
I hope it'll turn out right
I'm finally gonna turn towards the light
Towards the light

Take me to the grand ol' San Francisco
Let my problems slip away
The Golden Gate is where I wanna go
Let my problems fade to gray

Takin' this train on outta here
It's time I left this place
I finally found a dream I'm gonna chase
Don't know what'll happen there
I hope it'll turn out right
I'm finally gonna turn towards the light
Towards the light

Take me up north to see the redwoods
There they'll teach me how to grow
Let me gaze upon their majesty
They'll show me all that they know

Takin' this train on outta here
It's time I left this place
I finally found a dream I'm gonna chase
Don't know what'll happen there
I hope it'll turn out right
I'm finally gonna turn towards the light
Towards the light
Track Name: Remember
Remember that time when we first met
Remember that time when we smelled french toast
Remember that time when we looked at the stars
When clouds were covering the most

Remember that time when we first kissed
Remember that time when I first held your hand
Remember that time when you said you love me
And I could barely stand

So many memories so little time
Where'd it all go
Time seems to be flying by but I know
I love you so

Remember that time when you taught me to dance
Remember that time you wore a box on your head
Remember that time when we got lost at night
But called it adventure instead

Remember that time when we first walked through town
Remember that time when I first walked you home
Remember that time when I messed with your hair
And you straightened it out with my comb

So many memories so little time
Where'd it all go
Time seems to be flying by but I know
I love you so

Remember that time when I first wrote you a song
Remember that time when we walked through the rain
Remember that time when you came in my life and made it
So far from plain

So many memories so little time
Where'd it all go
Time seems to be flying by but I know
I love you so
Track Name: Awakening
You can't hide forever
It's time for you to come on out
It's time to conquer your fear
And shatter all of your doubt

You're not alone
You don't only need your own two feet
For you are made strong
Whenever you are weak

Stand right there
Hold your ground
Things are gonna be safe and sound
Just believe
Be sure to breathe
Break and be who you're meant to be
Who you're meant to be

You know more than you think
You find it hard to believe
You're afraid of giving your all
Then having everyone leave

Stand right there
Hold your ground
Things are gonna be safe and sound
Just believe
Be sure to breathe
Break and be who you're meant to be
Who you're meant to be
Track Name: The Road
And it's a long long way home
And it's a long long way home
And it's a long long way home
And I'm trying to find my way

This road I travel isn't always clear
Some days it feels like it'll never end
But at least I get to travel down this road
With all of my friends

This road I travel forks in many ways
Where they go I still don't know
I think it's time I decided
To let it all go

And it's a long long way home
And it's a long long way home
And it's a long long way home
And I'm trying to find my way
And I'm trying to find my way

Whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh

I know that I don't know everything
And maybe I'll figure it out someday
I've realized I'm not ok
And that's ok

And it's a long long way home
And it's a long long way home
And it's a long long way home
And I'm trying to find my way

And it's a long long way home
And it's a long long way home
And it's a long long way home
And I'm trying to find my way
And I'm trying to find my way

Whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh

Whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh
