Work EP (2017)

Be Here Now

I take my time

I can't afford to waste it    

Standing in line                    

The modern-day uncomfortable way    

I made my mind up

I wanna spend it with you

Running in place                

Is positively madness    

I hear you say,            

It doesn't have to be this way.    

I feel it too and    

I wanna be here with you.            

So I'm making a change

I'm turning the night to day

Oh Iet time get away

It hasn't a thing to say   

These are the days

The hours are illusion

Only mistake            

Is feeling that they're getting away    

I want my time back                    

I wanna spend it with you.        

Oh I'm making a change

I'm turning the night to day

So Iet time get away

It hasn't a thing to say

All I need is a friend

Who knows about the stars

I know that you are.

I want my time back

I want to spend it with you

These are the days

The hours are illusion

Only mistake is feeling that they're getting away

I want my time back

I want to spend it with you

I need a friend who can be here too

And I know that you are

I want my time back

I want to spend it with you

I want to be here with you.

 

Case Study

Learning how to know you

Knowing how to be myself 

In your city

On TV

At the same time

Knowing how to stay calm

Even when my arms get tired

With my power 

And your power

At the same time

Wishing you would be mine

This isn't love

Not in the way that I've been looking for

Bet you would destroy me

And be a better friend

After I quit dreaming I can change your mind

Wish I could erase mine

This isn't love

Not in the way that I've been looking for

Thank you for being

Such a lovely individual.

 

Cheer Up Free Your Mind

I need a place        

To lay my knees

And rest my spirit        

Be at be at be at ease.                    

I'll be your teacher                

And you teach me        

And if you ask me

How do you feel right no w?

I'll say I'm golden

I'm getting through 

And I'll forever         

Be at be at be at ease.    

And I would ask you

How do you feel right now?

How do you feel right now?

Cheer up and free your mind.

Cheer up in your mind

Cheer up and free your mind        

And have a good time 

Cheer up and free your mind          

Cheer up in your mind.

I'll be your healer

And carefully

I'll be your Richard IV.

And if they ask you    

How do you feel right now?

How do you feel right now?

How do you feel right now?

Cheer up and free your mind

Cheer up in your mind

Cheer up and free your mind

And have a good time.

Cheer up and free your mind

Cheer up in your mind

Cheer up and free your mind

And have a good time

Cheer up and free your mind

Cheer up in your mind.

 

Holiday

This time of year

I get my favorite things

I've chosen them all pretty dearly

I put em together

And honor, for free

My reality

On my holiday  

2-D-A-Y

H-O-L-I-D-A-Y

Well oh well, oh me oh my

Y'all come over!   

I found God

She's in the Arctic Circle

Checking on a submarine    

The sky is falling

There's a pie on the table!

And how it speaks to me!

On my holiday 

2-D-A-Y 

H-O-L-I-D-A-Y

Well oh well, oh me oh my

Y'all come over!

I am a lover

I'm looking for others

Thinking of life pretty clearly     

It's everything

It is you, it is me

The land and the deep blue sea    

And it's a holiday 

2-DAY

H-O-L-I-D-A-Y

L-O-L, oh me oh my

Y'all come over!

Y'all come over! 2-D-A-Y

Y'all come over! 2-D-A-Y

Y'all come over! 

Try, company, try!

Try, company, try!

Come celebrate it

Or you're aiding in the

Ending of our time.

Come to believe it

Or you're even

The awful reason

for decline.

 

Schopenhauer On Love

I could leave here

My only regret

Being shy

And the work I left behind.            

I resigned

Til this evening

When I lost my mind

Over you                            

Suddenly I'd like to go on living.

I'm not scared

I never wanted

A kid, or even an automobile.

Maybe here I'm in agreement

With Schopenhauer 

On love.

Suddenly I'm dying to leave the city

And I realize

Suddenly I'd like to have a child.

I can achieve

A healthy routine

Solitude and Hollywood romance.     

But I want more now     

I rescind it

I'll throw it away            

For Love.

And the day I'm writing songs again    

And I realize

Suddenly I'd like to change my name.

I was never built for being lonely

And I realize

Suddenly I'm dying to live in Rome.
