Track Name: Santa Cruz
From San Francisco Bay down to Monterey
Livin’ up my daze in an ocean-side haze
I never came to play, but when I tried to slip away
They gave me four hundred twenty reasons to stay

Out here on my own
My baby’s back at home
Though I’d like to stay I need someone to pull me away
‘Cause I sure don’t wanna lose
Myself in Santa Cruz

The beating of the drum echoes with the hums
Stollin’ down Pacific in the shining sun
The surfers and the bums, the buskers who strum
Everyone just came here to have some fun

Out here on my own
My baby’s back at home
Though I’d like to stay I need someone to pull me away
‘Cause I sure don’t wanna lose
Myself in Santa Cruz

Even in the hills spirits fly as they will
Passing things around that make time stand still
Vibing with the chill, Cali dreams are fulfilled
It’s been easy wasting time I’ve had my West Coast fill

Out here on my own
My baby’s back at home
Though I’d like to stay I need someone to pull me away
‘Cause I sure don’t wanna lose
Myself in Santa Cruz

I’ve been spending every night
Wishing you would hold me tight
Oh the sheets are so cold with no one to hold me close
Hold me close, please hold me close

Out here on my own
My baby’s back at home
Though I’d like to stay I need someone to pull me away
‘Cause I sure don’t wanna lose
Myself in Santa Cruz
Track Name: Some Girls
Some girls like the summer time
Some girls like it cold
Some girls like to play around long before they’re old
Whoa, whoa, whoa, long before they’re old

Oh yeah I (I like it I like it like that)
Feel the vibe (I like it I like it like that)
See the Signs (I like it I like it like that)
Siren sky
Oh yeah I (I like it I like it like that)
Feel the vibe (I like it I like it like that)
See the signs (I like it I like it like that)
Siren sky

Some boys take the highway
Some boys swim and sail
Some boys hike the mountains and get lost along the trail
Whoa, whoa, whoa, lost along the trail

Oh yeah I (I like it I like it like that)
Feel the vibe (I like it I like it like that)
See the signs (I like it I like it like that)
Siren’s sky
Oh yeah I (I like it I like it like that)
Feel the vibe (I like it I like it like that)
See the signs (I like it I like it like that)
Siren’s sky

Some folks do the disco
Some folks do the jive
Some folks just like you and me dance to feel alive
Whoa, whoa, whoa, dance to feel alive

Oh yeah I (I like it I like it like that)
Feel the vibe (I like it I like it like that)
See the signs (I like it I like it like that)
Siren’s sky
Oh yeah I (I like it I like it like that)
Feel the vibe (I like it I like it like that)
See the signs (I like it I like it like that)
Siren’s sky
Track Name: Cya Later
Trying to connect the dots between our thoughts
Twisting, winding, seeking, finding squat
You know what you’re trying to prove
I’ll just leave that up to you

Talk to you soon, see you later
I never liked complainers
When your heart and your mind are on the same side,
You can never break your stride
You can never break stride.
Never, no never

Looking forwards, slipping backwards through the cracks
Look over your shoulder, better watch your back
Paranoia’s gripping you,
What else have you got to lose?

Talk to you soon , see you later
I never liked complainers
When your heart and your mind are on the same side,
You can never break your stride
You can never break stride.
Never, no never

Sometimes you hit a wall
Most times, I don’t think to call
'Cause all times, all you do is bring me down, bring me down, bring me down

So I’ll talk to you soon , see you later
I never liked complainers
When your heart and your mind are on the same side,
You can never break your stride, Never break stride.
Never, no never

When your heart and your mind are on the same side, you can never break
Track Name: Window Watching
Window watching
Will never grow old
Under blankets, tangled
We will never grow cold
But in the summer snow
Is when I miss you most

Hazy spaces
Open between you and me
Communication’s saying
“Say what you need mean”
Mean what you say, say what you mean
Do as you please

I pulled your picture off my wall
Forbid your name across my tongue
Thought I had it all figured out
But I, I can’t let you go

Your face is a painting
On my the walls of my mind
Wish I could save you from fate
Wish I could turn back time
Erase the pain, see you again
I would never, never, never leave your side

I pulled your picture off my wall
Forbid your name across my tongue
Thought I had it all figured out
But I, I can’t let you go

I pulled your picture off my wall
Forbid your name across my tongue
Thought I had it all figured out
But I, I can’t let you go
No I, I can’t let you go
Oh I let you go
Track Name: Wait On You
Waking up slow, bumping elbows
As the sun streams through the holes of the blinds
Eyes smiling, closed
And open arms colliding as we roll

Read in my eyes
Believe it in my smile
There’s no need to hypnotize me
I ain’t gonna spend a dime on you
Save your pennies
Time is all that I need

When you walk with me, when you talk with me
Giddy children giggling at every pretty thing we see
Feel the easy breeze, see the trees
Reflections of a world we see beneath our feet

Read in my eyes
Believe it in my smile
There’s no need to hypnotize me
I ain’t gonna spend a dime on you
Save your pennies
Time is all that I need

Heart and soul, my heart and soul, my heart and soul
In the age of the telephone
You meet the people you never would’ve known
The sands of the hourglass run sideways
You meet the people you never would’ve known
The sands of the hourglass run sideways as we roll

Read in my eyes
Believe it in my smile
There’s no need to hypnotize me
I ain’t gonna spend a dime on you
Save your pennies
Time is all that I need
