Track Name: Darling, You Are
I tried to write a letter, to tell you how I feel
I wrote it ten times over, just to make sure it was real
And I'm sifting through these adjectives, metaphors for stars
But darling you just are, you are

Darling you just are, you are
This message can't be simpler, I won't push it any farther
Darling you just are, you are
Darling you just are, you are

I tried to write you poems, stories, rhymes and tales
About how I will walk with you through this life's many trails
But trying to describe my love just isn't in the cards
And darling you just are, you are

Darling you just are, you are
This message can't be simpler, I won't push it any farther
Darling you just are, you are
Darling you just are, you are

So here's a song
About a girl who cannot do me wrong
There's a new spring in my step
To sing these words without a regret

I tried to write a letter, to tell you how I feel
I wrote it ten times over, to make sure it was real
And I'm sifting through these adjectives, metaphors for stars
But darling you just are, you are
Darling you just are, you are
Track Name: Maybe One Day
Walking with you on a sunset beach
A shared little dream just out of reach
Hasn't happened yet but I hope someday it will
It's been so long since I've seen you smile
Maybe one day in a little while
We'll settle our scores and clear off all our deals

So hold on to the possibility
That maybe one day you might be free
Seashore calling our names your hand in mine
Hold on to the possibility
That maybe one day we might be free
And may all of our troubles get left behind

Crushed by burdens out of control
Gotta push a rock but it just won't roll
Never coulda known that life wouldn't be so kind
Keep on pushing for your perfect dream
Maybe one day you might be free
Step by step, one day at a time

So hold on to the possibility
That maybe one day you might be free
Seashore calling our names your hand in mine
Hold on to the possibility
That maybe one day we might be free
And may all of our troubles get left behind.
Track Name: Couchmate Katie
Saturday night we're gonna have another party
Busting a move to the little stereo
Sometimes I get a little drunk and I can't go home
There's a couch and a blanket I can call my own
On the other spare sofa is a beautiful girl
I can't take it anymore

Cause every single Sunday morning we wake up on our own
Couchmate Katie, why are we so alone?
So many lovers with their arms around their shoulders
Couchmate Katie, why don't you slide over?
Couchmate Katie, why don't you slide over?

Bundled up, too drunk in our street worn sleepwear
We talk about our night like it went somewhere
Are we shot down, Katie, and need some sympathy?
Why don't you move a little closer to me?
The trouble with a sofa is it only sleeps one
I feel a little cold

Cause every single Sunday morning we wake up on our own
Couchmate Katie, why are we so alone?
So many lovers with their arms around their shoulders
Couchmate Katie, why don't you slide over?
Couchmate Katie, why don't you slide over?

You're always right across and I feel so close
We need a place for us both

Cause every single Sunday morning we wake up on our own
Couchmate Katie, why are we so alone?
So many lovers with their arms around their shoulders
Couchmate Katie, why don't you slide over?
Couchmate Katie, why don't you slide over?
Couchmate Katie, why don't you slide over?
