Track Name: Come Around
I’ve been searching for a while now
For the perfect kind of girl
The one that makes it all go ‘round
I’ve been working all night now
Trying to fix up my world
Gotta figure this thing out

I’ve been thinking it’s about time that
I changed my ways
I’m just tired of being alone
I’ve been wondering what it is that
I’m doing wrong
Guess I gotta just let it go

Sometimes what you’re looking for it’s
It’s looking for you

Won’t you come around baby
Turn the lights down low
Let’s watch the sunset from the clouds
Won’t you come around darling
Let’s go out into the snow
We’re making angels in the ground

I think I know now
That you’re the one I’ve found

- Verse -
Lately I’ve been
I’ve been making some changes
Trying to put my best face on
And maybe I’ve been
I’ve been a bit of a stranger
But baby that’s not what I want

Every time I try to tell you
This is who I am
You try to tell me no it’s not
I don’t need your help I just want
Your hand
And I’ll give you all I’ve got

I just need to find the way to be to set me free

Won’t you come around baby
Turn the lights down low
Let’s watch the sunset from the clouds
Won’t you come around darling
Let’s go out into the snow
We’re making angels in the ground

Won’t you come around baby
Won’t you come around baby
Oh won’t you come around

Won’t you come around baby
Turn the lights down low
Let’s watch the sunset from the clouds
Won’t you come around darling
Let’s go out into the snow
We’re making angels in the ground

Won’t you come around baby
Won’t you come around
Won’t you
Won’t you come around

Won’t you come around baby
Track Name: Second Chances
Every time she comes it’s something special
But she takes a piece of me when she walks away
Everything she touches, sentimental
I wish that i could make her stay

Everything I see is her potential
There’s no end to what she could be
Every little smile, confidential
I know she’s looking out for me

And Im wondering if
she’ll ever know what i did and
can she ever forgive me

Give me one more
Everything’s gonna be better
I’m not giving up this time

So give me one more
I won’t be the one that left her
She’s not just yours she’s part of mine
She’s not just yours she’s part of mine

Everything I have I’m giving to her
Every single minute she’s with me
I could never think of life without her
I hope that I can be what she needs

Trying to forget my past offenses
‘Cos the things we broke are past repair
We both know there’s no sense pretending
All thats left is to treat her fair

And Im wondering if
she’ll ever know what i did and
can she ever forgive me

Give me one more
Everything’s gonna be better
I’m not giving up this time

So give me one more
I won’t be the one that left her
She’s not just yours she’s part of mine
She’s not just yours she’s part of mine

Second chances
My second chances
Second chances
She’s not just yours she’s part of mine
Track Name: Take Care
You got one taste of your freedom
Just one breath of the air
It’s been too long since you’ve seen them
Do they know today’s the day do they even care

Ten years no probation
You missed out on their best days
You promised that you’d always love them
You said take care of your mother while I’m away
Take care of each other while I’m away

You never said you were sorry
But they learned that’s just who you are
Now you wanna be part of their story
But you’ll never be their hero anymore

We’re doing what we can
With the time that we’ve got left
So give me your hand let’s go together
This time I’m sticking around forever

They can take your grace, they can take your freedom
But one thing will always remain
Even if you’re broken and you’re beaten
Your love for them will always be the same

They stayed up late too many mornings
Hoping that this would be the day
That you’d walk through that door and tell them
I’m sorry that I had to go away
But now I’m back, now I’m here to stay

You never said you were sorry
But they knew that’s just what you meant
Now you wanna be part of their story
There’s plenty pages left for you to fill in

We’re doing what we can
With the time that we’ve got left
So give me your hand let’s go together
This time I’m sticking around forever

We’re doing what we can
With the time that we’ve got left
So give me your hand let’s go together
This time I’m sticking around forever
Track Name: The Otter Song
It takes some time, sometimes
and other times it takes no time at all
To watch some lives, go by
See them wonder ‘bout the point of it all
I close my eyes, sometimes
Just let it all pass me by
I need some time, sometimes
to take it all in

And I
Drift away from your side
So hold my hand while we sleep
And maybe we’ll share some dreams
And I
I’m leaving for the other side
I think I’ve gotten in too deep
So just watch me float out to sea

I change my mind, sometimes
thinking maybe, I should have stayed
But i’m guilty of so many crimes and
some other ones that I’ll never say

And I
Drift away from your side
So hold my hand while we sleep
And maybe we’ll share some dreams
And I
I’m leaving for the other side
I think I’ve gotten in too deep
So just watch me float out to sea

Watch me drift on by
Watch me drift away baby
Watch me float on by now
Well I'm drifting
Oh I'm drifting, I'm drifting away

And I
Drift away from your side
So hold my hand while we sleep
And maybe we’ll share some dreams
And I
I’m leaving for the other side
I think I’ve gotten in too deep
So just watch me float out to sea
Track Name: Gold
Gold
Echoes of ships off the coast
Sailing away from their homes
You move like the wind

And we hold
Onto our dreams like a rope
Never quite giving up hope
That someone will pull us back in

Maybe we’re lost out here
Maybe we’ve oversteered
We’re giving in to the outside
We’ve given up all our places to hide
Maybe we’ll fight this fear
Together

I’m sick of the stories i’ve found
And i’ve run all my mem’ries to ground
Let’s go make some new ones

Ohhh
The days just keep rolling on by
And I haven’t quite figured out why
I’m holding on to us

Maybe we’re lost out here
Maybe we’ve oversteered
We’re giving in to the outside
We’ve given up all our places to hide
Maybe we’ll fight this fear
Together

I haven’t decided if
I’m running and hiding
From them or myself
I’m giving it time and
I’m trying to find if there’s
Anything else

Maybe we’re lost out here
Maybe we’ve oversteered
We’re giving in to the outside
We’ve given up all our places to hide
Maybe we’ll fight this fear
Together

Maybe we’re
Maybe we’re lost
Maybe we’re
Maybe we’re lost
Track Name: Take Me On
If I drown in the water
On my way swimming out to you
Would you look back and see me
Would you know just what I’d do

And if I stood in the doorway
With our bags all packed for two
Would you come out and join me
Would you be the one who

Takes me on
All my burdens
All my sins
And all my hurting
Would you take me on
‘Cos I’m a shadow
Lost my wind
And I tossed my paddles
And if all I have is you
Oh then all I have is you

If I go off the trail now
Where the lines all turn to stone
Would you watch while I fail and
Would you follow me home

And take me on
All my burdens
All my sins
And all my hurting
Would you take me on
‘Cos I’m a shadow
Lost my wind
And I tossed my paddles
And if all I have is you
Oh then all I have is you

Take me on
All my burdens
All my sins
And all my hurting
Would you take me on
‘Cos I’m a shadow
Lost my wind
And I tossed my paddles
And if all I have is you
Oh then all I have is you
