Track Name: Lost At Sea
I’m lost at sea without a sail
there’s so many stories that I want to tell
the sky above is turning gray
a simple reminder that I’m here to stay

I watch the colorful sunrise
long enough to let tears form in my eyes
I’m lost at sea all I know is this
when I look in your eyes everything makes sense


I’ll write it down so I don’t forget,
a blank book with words and letters filling it
I hum melodies when I’m alone
and then I’m with you and we are finally home

This world is hard but I’ve got you
and that’s all I need for me to get through
I’m lost at sea all I know is this
when I look in your eyes everything makes sense

When I look in your eyes
there’s something in the skies.
Track Name: At the Zoo With You
let's take a walk together
down pathways you and I
I've waited here forever
it's written in the sky
the creatures they adore us,
living inside their spaces
they do not want to forest
they see so many faces

at the zoo with you

there's just one thing I know for sure
when I'm so far from home
when you look at the stars tonight
and we are all alone
watch red and yellow paint the sky
there's so much left to do
I have just one request:
I wish I was at the zoo with you

at the zoo with you
Track Name: Shine
I want to tell you
about the ocean
it never stops moving
a simple motion
I want to shine just like
the sun in the sky
you'll never see the dark
as long as I just

shine
Track Name: Kite Song
I want to be your kite but I don’t know how to fly
I want to tell you stories instead of passing by
I want to be your everything but I’ve got nothing to give
I want to fall in love with you but I don’t know how to live

we’d be happy,
we could be in love
we’d be happy
with the stars above

The other day I went to you to sing a little song
but all the words were missing something else was wrong
I turned around to someone else and they were missing too
and that’s when I woke up and knew I wasn’t next you

I’m gonna build a time machine to take away your pain
I’ll go back to everytime you cried and we’ll get on a train
I’ll sing you simple melodies to help you get through
and that’s when you will realize that I was made for you

we’ll be happy
we will be in love
we’ll be happy
with the stars above

I want to be your kite so I’m gonna learn how to fly
and Im gonna tell you stories instead of passing by
and I want to be your everything that’s what I’m gonna give
and I’m gonna fall in love with you so I know how to live
Track Name: Okapi
I'm counting down all the day
I swear I'm gonna hop a plane:
to get to know you better

the world is a beautiful place
but I'm more drawn to your face:
you and me together

I'm so sick and tired of being lonely
I want you to be my one and only
so go ahead and try to kill me
I can't lost whats not mine
I ask myself if life is worth living
when I'm taking out more than I'm getting
I don't want anything less than the very best
but that's not what I deserve when I am such a mess

You're always looking around
my eyes are stuck on the ground
is that how things should be?

I'll still be here when you're not
sometimes I think you forgot
how much you mean to me

I'm getting lost now again
the ink's running from my pen
will we ever be free?
Track Name: Front Teeth
I woke to find the answer:
something's buried underneath
delicately broken
just beneath your two front teeth

I walked around for hours
planning things out step by step
then i saw it clearly:
loving you's not hard to get
Track Name: One Million Giraffes
one million giraffes
one million giraffes

you and I are the best of buds
we both like old records and playing in the mud
savers and lions always make our day
we use sign language to say what we say
dancing, seattle, and running in the rain
sufjan, the zoo, and riding in a train
poems and keyboards and making you laugh
secrets and awkwardness, did i say giraffes

one million giraffes
one million giraffes

you and I are the best of friends
we'll be here for each other right till the end
we like hot air balloons and giraffes
red and yellow, photographs
the moon, the stars, and chinese food
banjos, and ukuleles too
if there was just one thing we could do
it would be to sing this song to you

one million giraffes
one million giraffes
Track Name: Shooting Stars
colors flashing blue and green
a loss of breath at what we’d seen
seeing clear and cloudless skies
shooting stars will never die

we’re taking off now past our earth
losing thoughts of what it’s worth
constellations are burning bright
so hold this moment and hold it tight

shooting stars will map our way
let’s fly all night and through the day

if I was a star in the sky
and you were on earth passing by
I wouldn’t mind falling to the ground
just so you could hear this sound

I’d wave goodbye to my shining friends
then I would begin to decend
I’d risk the burns from the atmosphere
just for a moment to hold you near.

shooting stars will map our way
lets fly all night and through the day
shooting stars will map our way
lets fly all night and through the day
