Track Name: Believe
Someone once said to me, “We’ve all got to believe.”
I’ve got tricks up my sleeves; you’ve got dirt on your knees

And once in a while, it’s true and we smile
Even when there’s nothing to see
Patiently waiting, never once taking away hope
From those who believe

Believe

Oooh, oooh

Put your hand in my hand, live this future unplanned
We’ve both planted the seeds, we’ve both got what we need

And once in a while, it’s true and we smile
Even when there’s nothing to see
Patiently waiting, never once taking away hope
From those who believe

Believe

Oooh, oooh
Oh Oh Oh

Someone once said to me, “We’ve all got to believe”
We’ve all got to believe
We’ve all got to believe
Track Name: Wonder
Oh oh oh

Stop and make the sound you want to hear
Hope, hope that you've made your intentions clear
Smile, because the world can smell your fear
Breathe, because you know that I'm right here

Listen to the sound, listen to the sound of…

Wonder

Oh oh oh

Grow, because the world is getting small
Cry, you know that you can't have it all
Scream, your neighbors can't get over that wall
Touch, touch ones you love and brace their falls

LIsten to the sound, listen to the sound of…

Wonder

One time through I feel even more brand new
Sure of this through and through
Knowing we know the truth
Let's not stray, I'll remind you everyday
Of heartbeats and games we play
The promises we all say

Oh oh oh
Track Name: San Francisco
There’s no time to talk about
All the things I dream about
Climbing stairs and hills that lead only up in
Circles back to here

‘Cause I threw my heart about San Francisco
Yes I threw my heart about San Francisco

There’s no time to worry now
To sit and wonder where and how
We marked ourselves with a constant reminder
Now it’s time to let it go

So we threw our hearts about San Francisco
Yes we threw our hearts about San Francisco

Ohh

Beating all across the country
Beating to the sound of car keys
Beating underneath the palm trees
Beating too hard inside me
Beating underneath the palm trees
Beating too hard inside me

So I threw our hearts about….
Track Name: Like a Fool
I can’t be nice all the time
I’m learning how to tell a lie
I’m coming home too late at night
I’m acting out and it feels fine

Maybe it’s cruel to tell you
I got some dirt on you
I can’t wait to hold this
Over your head

Like a Fool

I finally learned to let my hair down
I’ll stomp your light out on the cold ground
I can be mean, I can be loud
I’m gonna do it all the time now

Maybe it’s cruel to tell you
I got some dirt on you
I can’t wait to hold this
Over your head

Like a Fool

Maybe it’s cruel to tell you
Maybe it’s wrong to want to
Maybe it’s cruel to tell you
Maybe it’s wrong to want to
Maybe it’s cruel to tell you
That I, I want you

Like a Fool
Track Name: My, How You've Grown
My, how you’ve grown
Cartilage and bone
Ready to make our bed
To preach what we once said

But are we hoping
Are we hoping
Are we hoping
Are we just hoping, wishing away

Better to go
Better to try
To hold onto what we know
To never let it slide

But are we hoping
Are we hoping
Are we hoping
Are we just hoping, wishing away

Under summer skies
We each learned how to fly
We spread our fingers wide
And swallowed all our pride

And now we’re hoping
Now we’re hoping
Now we’re hoping
Now we’re just hoping, wishing away

Our hearts grew much too big
I used my hands to dig
We buried all our fears
Too deep to reappear

And now we’re hoping
Now we’re hoping
Now we’re hoping
Now we’re just hoping, wishing away

Are we hoping, wishing away

But are we hoping
Are we hoping
Are we hoping
Are we just hoping, wishing away
Track Name: Before
Before the world was mine
I held it in my hands and it felt alright
Before the world was mine
I held it in my heart and it felt fine

How were we to know that this would be so fun
How were we to know that we could come undone

Before we lived off light
We held it in our hands and it felt alright
Before we lived off light
We held it in our hearts and it felt fine

How were we to know that this would be so fun
How were we to know that we could come undone

How were we to know that this would be so fun
How were we to know that we could come undone

Ba da da
Ba da da
Ba da da

Oooh
