Track Name: Laugh It Off
Last weekend I was looking for a getaway
it was cool 'cuz we were riding on the same wave

when we were walking home, didn't notice we were drifting
we were all alone, opportunities existed.
My heart is beating, it's a bad caffeine addiction,
what are you trying to prove?

you bring me together
you bring me together
you bring me together like 100 miles of dynamite

I came over and you didn't try anything
can't you see that I'm confused by this Shoots and Ladders game we are playing

did I do something wrong? If I did I must have missed it
you got me day-dreaming, put yourself in my position
my heart is beating, it's a bad caffeine addiction,
it's only a problem if you don't know how to fix it

you bring me together
you bring me together
you bring me together like 100 miles of dynamite

you told me things that I never knew were true before
then you laugh it off, like it was something small
i'm feeling blue 'cuz i know that I could do with more
I thought you felt it, oh I thought you felt it too
Track Name: Should've Known Better
You've got a heart of sugar
your head is full of what's next
So we tried to take things further
but you're not over the past

Here I am on the floor
Lights are off, I'm probably not moving soon
I don't understand what I'm waiting for
I've got all the time

Breath in heavy air
I should've known better
it should've been clear
I don't move and I don't care
I should've known better
should've been clear

You had a way with words,
promises rolled off your lips
so things I'd never heard before would
float across the room and land like a kiss

Here I am studying ceilings
quiet heart, quiet house
I don't understand, I've got too many feelings
all that I can do is

Breath in heavy air
I should've known better
it should've been clear
I don't move and I don't care
I should've know better
should've been clear
Track Name: Swimming In The Wrong Sea
You decided just to go
following the flow of the sea

No direction, no idea
sight is foggy but mind is clear

You silly little fish, are you lost?
Or is this what you've wished, wished for all along?

You're floating aimlessly
distracted by the ocean breeze
you're drowning but you're only up to your knees
little fish, you're swimming in the wrong sea

You used to be the king in your tiny stream
but you're anxious now
so you're off and wandering, you want to do big things
you gotta know if something is possible...

You silly little fish, do you know?
It seems you can't resist the blue below, blue below

You're floating aimlessly
distracted by the ocean breeze
you're drowning but you're only up to your knees
little fish, you're swimming in the wrong sea
Track Name: Get To Know You
We met under funny circumstance
some Jell-O shots and a foolish dance
No I was not expecting to meet anyone

You walked me to my place that night
with shoes in hand and a heart in flight
making plans for the weekend
and hearing myself thinking

I want to get to know you

I keep thinking of you, I'm not supposed to
but I can't help but wonder, how is the weather where you are?

and would you tell me all about your sisters, what do they do?
I want to hear about the first place you went to school
drive me down your favorite road,
I want to know the "you" from long ago

I want to get to know you
Track Name: Old Trouble
Here's to the things that I don't say
the ones that make me afraid, the things that I can't escape

It's strange to be young and to know that I should be brave
by my heart is in another place

I've been dreaming thousands of ways it'd be better than last time
after all these years I still feel that pull

Stop looking for a new way
Stop looking for a new way
Stop looking for a new way to get in old trouble

All of this time you've been running on turning ground
yeah it's always been up and down, it's never been calm enough

Sometimes the silence is scarier than the sound,
it's easier just to keep it loud so you cant hear the heart that's breaking

I've been dreaming thousands of ways it'd be better than last time
after all these years I still feel that pull

Stop looking for a new way
Stop looking for a new way
Stop looking for a new way to get in old trouble
