01. teen dream
listen     

Can we lay in bed all day? 
Fuck that,
theres too much at stake 
What do you mean? Are you scared to grow? 
Not at all, but its just time to move on watch things pass 
Watch things pass 
Watch things pass 
Watch things pass 

I'll surround myself with my favorite things, 
So when you won't call I
wont thing about what it means 
Oh my god, did she just say that she loves me? 
Now it looks like I got my teen dream

02. hai bby
listen    

I can pretend to hold you tight 
You know I want to have you tonight 
I've done these things with myself behind 
Now I want to be here to do things right 
Now I want to be here to do things right 
Now I want to be here to do things right 

If you long to hold my hand 
Girl step forward and ill be your man 
Things are moving too quickly 
Girl I know but sometimes love comes swiftly 
Girl I know but sometimes love comes swiftly 
Girl I know but sometimes love comes swiftly 

I can see the stars in your eyes 
These feelings you hold to your heart this time 
Don't let them keep us apart 
Now lay down and ill share my heart 
Now lay down and ill share my heart 
Now lay down and ill share my heart 

Are you sure these feelings you have are love? 
Girl with you things cant move fast enough 
I want to be seen by your side 
So take me now, we don't have to hide 
So take me now, we don't have to hide 
So take me now, we don't have to hide

03. crystal tears
listen    

Girls fell from trees 
You know I don't like to pry 
I'm just bleeding loving tears 
Purple crystals from my eyes 
Shades of light reverberate with you 
Just like a sin, evading the truth 

Like forest rain, bleeding sweet 
Lover of mine 
You said your loves a different kind 

Whisper a wind of lust in my ear 
Me and you baby girl we fight with love 
A smoke of lies, death and fear 
Crystal raindrops haunt me close 
Girls will come and they will go 
How many nights have you cried alone? 

Like forest rain, bleeding sweet 
Lover of mine 
You said your loves a different kind

04. half open
listen    

I know you'll stay, but I don't know how long 
Is it ok or do you think its wrong? 
Half opened eyes, wake me with your voice 
Full hearted sighs now don't make a noise 

I'll wait a long time to really understand 

Promiseits worth it though it not what you planned 
Don't let me keep you from doing what you want 
A soul you can see through, hold on until you're gone 
Hold on until you're gone 
Hold on until you're gone 
Hold on until you're gone 
Hold on until you're gone 
Hold on until you're gone 
Hold on until you're gone 
Hold on until you're gone

05. little leaf
listen   

if you shared all these loves of mine 
could you hold these feelings in time? 
you're so cute, of course I wouldn't mind 
I don't mind, I don't mind 

and when the day comes to you I'll say 
girl let's make love everyday 
enjoy the sun and take a drive down to LA 

we could stop by the hills with trees 
I'll pick a flower in the summer breeze 
and I'll ask you to be my baby 
my baby 

I had a million prayers all those nights 
under these stars I knew I couldn't lie 
I didn't need a single one 
to call you my girlfriend 

so I'll be there when you are sad 
when you feel like you need someone 
when all hopes lost and you need to run 
I'll be your boyfriend 

we can stop by the hills with trees 
I'll pick a flower and I'll get on my knees 
and I'll ask you to marry me 
marry me
