Track Name: Me and You
We'll split the earth, part the sea
Scale the mountains like they're nothing
We'll take a breath, count to three
Leave this whole damn place behind
The miles will fly beneath our feet
And we'll never tire of running
I'll take your hand in my own
No, I've never felt so sure.

I swear.
I swear.

We run away
No shame
We'll find a place
Where no one tries to hurt you
We run away
No shame
We'll be
Me and you.

We'll catch a break around the bend
Can't you see the sun is rising?
A heart too cold to comprehend
Hanging way up in the sky
Another moon, another you
Looks up at me from a body
Behind the eyes of something new
The soul I love is trapped inside.

I know.
I know.

We run away
No shame
We'll find a place
Where no one tries to hurt you
We run away
No shame
We'll be
Me and you.

I've made mistakes
For which you've paid
It's my turn now
To bring it back around

We run away
No shame
We'll find a place
Where no one tries to hurt you
We run away
No shame
We'll be
Me and you,
We'll be
Me and you.
Track Name: A Little Time
The silver white light shows secrets
On your eyes
The branches are bare as you cut me down
To size
That storm keeps its distance
The air catches our breath
Sooner or later
There will be nothing left

Spend a little time with
Spend a little time with
Spend a little time with me
But don't waste your time on
Don't waste your time on
Don't waste your time on me
Don't waste your time on me

The moonlight mingles
With the sun's waning rays
Bright orange longing will
Cancel your melancholy greys
You hear on the breeze
The words that you'd never confess
Only a cold Winter's night
Could tell you the rest

Spend a little time with
Spend a little time with
Spend a little time with me
But don't waste your time on
Don't waste your time on
Don't waste your time on me
Don't waste your time on me

I'll push to the back of my mind
Your words left unsaid
Wouldn't you know it,
The sun is coming up red

Spend a little time with
Spend a little time with
Spend a little time with me
But don't waste your time on
Don't waste your time on
Don't waste your time on me
Don't waste your time on me

Don't let me touch you
Don't let me feel you
Don't let me hold you down
Don't let me stop you
Don't let me stop your world
From turning 'round
Track Name: Had To Be You
Our world turned to gold
At the touch of your hand
Washed over with something
That we'll never understand
We tucked you in tightly,
So fragile, so new,
He gave a little sigh, and said,
"It had to be you."

We'd read all the books
We knew what to expect
You made us feel perfect
You were ours to protect
We turned out the light
As your room faded blue
I saw you in his eyes, and thought,
"It had to be you."
It had to be you.

Maybe you saw my heart break
And you'll let me sing you awake
If that falls through,
Just know this is true:
For us, it had to be you

He put those worries
Inside of my head
We checked you by the hour,
Then by the minutes instead
Above you the comets
And rocketships flew
I watched your last breath, and thought,
"It had to be you."
It had to be you.

Maybe you saw my heart break
And you'll let me sing you awake
If that falls through,
Just know this is true:
For us, it had to be you
It had to be you.

The doctors assured me
That we weren't at fault,
It happens sometimes,
That they'd give us a call

Maybe you saw my heart break
And you'll let me sing you awake
If that falls through,
Just know this is true:
For us, it had to be you

Our lives turned to gold
At the touch of your hand
Washed over with something
That we'll never understand
Track Name: Starlite (Ballad for a Noble Steed)
The point of no return
Is all I see
I was living life for you
That’s all I could be
Our future looked Brite
But I guess I saw the Lite.
So I’m packing up and I’m gonna
Let it be
It don’t matter, all the times I
Pulled you through.
All the rainbow-colored bridges
I rode with you.
Those times have come and gone
And the time’s come, to move on
But I’m alone, and I’m afraid
I don’t know what to do.

Rainbow, Rainbow Brite.
Don’t you remember your friend
Starlite?

The Color Kids abandoned
Long ago
The Sprites you left to mine
All on their own
Now all of Rainbow Land has died,
You don’t know how that feels inside.
You can’t remember how I loved you so.

Rainbow, Rainbow Brite
Don’t you remember your friend
Starlite?

What am I to you,
Am I your mode of transportation?
Or am I
Something more?
Am I your steed? Am I your sidekick?
Am I the source of your frustration?
Or can I be the friend that you once adored?

...Rainbow Brite
Don’t you remember your friend
Starlite?

Rainbow, Rainbow Brite
Don’t you remember your friend
Starlite?
