Track Name: OK
There’s confusion on the radio
Someone else has lost control
There is something on my mind tonight
There’s a shadow on my soul

Ch:
And she turns and says to me
(You are OK, we are OK)
We can be happy you and me
(You are OK, we are OK)
And she turns and says to me
(You are OK, we are OK)
We can be happy wait and see
(You are OK, we are OK)

If I had it all to do again
I would do it all and more
I would dig a little deeper
Travel to a further shore

A million stars are up there, hidden behind the clouds
I put a record on and turn it up very, very, very loud
Track Name: Cordless
You are out of control
You are out of control
You’re a dying ember, but
You are out of control

And I never heard the words that could have changed things
And I never said the words that could have changed things

You are out of control
You are out of control
You’re a dying ember, but
You are out of control

And I never saw the need to keep you floating
And I never gave you a reason to believe me
Track Name: Doesn't Have to Live There
Everybody’s talking ‘bout the future
No one wants to talk about the past
Seems that there is no time for reflection
Everybody lives their life too fast

No one wants to talk about the problem
“Won’t make any difference,” they say
Many things are better left unspoken
Many things don’t need the light of day

Ch:
But she doesn’t haven’t to live there any more
The open road’s behind an open door
She doesn’t have to live there any more
The open road’s behind an open door

Everybody’s talking ‘bout the future
No one wants to talk about the past
But maybe there’s a chance she can outrun it
Maybe she can find some peace at last
Track Name: Chameleon Bones
I want to drive to the north, see chameleon bones
I don’t like the east, but I do like the west
It’s OK, you know it’s gonna be OK

I want to drive through the night, I’ve grown tired of this town
I don’t like the sun, how it beats on my face
But it’s OK, you know it’s gonna be OK

Ch:
And is there any question that can’t be answered with a compass and a map?
Each line is a suggestion, to keep you moving with your compass and your map

I want to drive to the north, see chameleon bones
I don’t like the east, but I do like the West
It’s OK, you know it’s gonna be OK
Track Name: Fall Around
Well I never thought I’d say it, but the moonlight is enough
And I’m feeling beat and dusty and I don’t know who to trust
Well I’m dreaming and defiant and she knows it’s not enough
But it’s rainy and I’m drowning and I’ve never seen you blush

Ch:
You should know my one and only song
And I’d fall around your beauty but I know that you are gone
You should know my one and only song
And I’d fall around your beauty but I know that you are gone

Well I’m taken by this summer shine, it’s chaos and it’s blind
And I don’t feel like it’s ending but it’s coming true this time
Track Name: Hide (Cannot)
Hold my tongue
Close my eyes
Still I will not hear you
Still I will not see

Train of thought
A final choice
Still I will not hide
A single memory

I will not hide
I cannot hide

Hold my tongue
Close my eyes
Still I will not hear you
Track Name: Change My World
Did you ever think you could change my world?
Well, I’d like to think you will
Did you ever think we’d be standing here at this time?

And I never got the warning ‘bout the sunlight in the morning
And it nearly drove me blind
But I think I’m going to make it
Yeah, I think that I will be fine

Ch:
And you are here
You are here

Did you ever wish that you could see through time
To find out how this will end?
Did you ever hope for a moment just like this?

And I think that we are learning that the world will keep on turning
And will bring us back around
To this place among the thousands
We are lucky we have found
