Track Name: Magenta
[Verse 1]
Sleep all night just to work all day
Fix my tie wash my face
Ready to go step out the door
Do it all again once twice more

On the train and you’re not alone
People lined up wall to wall
Different faces different clothes
Where do they go? Nobody knows

[Prechorus 1]
And you were on my end
You had your back to me
Holding a green tent
I guess to get out of the city

[Chorus]
I take a step to follow you
Snap back to reality
So intrigued I cannot stop thinking
Is that world there for me

[Verse 2]
Wrestle time just to get ahead
Watch the clock catch my head
Minute to go, an hour to wait
Working towards a good night’s sleep

Day is done and you’re headed home
Lonely but you’re not alone
Dictate movies dictate shows
Who’s on the juice? Nobody knows

[Prechorus 2]
And you were in my head
Still with your back to me
Holding that green tent
Living outside to be free

[Chorus]
Track Name: Pick You Up
[Verse 1]
You know it's just a game
Don't mean anything
Silly thing to play
But it's wired your brain

Losing this one
That’s what you hate
So you could've won
You'll get another day


[Chorus]
And I'll pick you up
I'll pick you up
I'll try to pick you up
If you stop being tough


[Verse 2]
Don’t matter now
Back at your house
Unravelled
Relax and lie down

Got a mean old stare
But I know that face
If you really cared
Kick that ass into space

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
I’ll try to pick you up
If you lose that tune
No it’s not my job
But it’s the best for you

[Chorus]
Track Name: Callback
[Verse 1]

Call back over the top and you’re too sure
Making it up as you go now
One time only let’s stay here
And never be lonely again

Practiced, over-rehearsed and recited
Tell all your friends it’s a sound off
Caught up in all the excitement
The good ones know what you mean

[Chorus]

We’re working too hard just trying to keep it together
Playing it safe isn’t gonna keep you sane
Everybody’s so smart but they don’t feel any better
The passion is there but it could never be the same

[Verse 2]

Contact but falling back into precaution
It’s been so long since I’ve known you
I was afraid you’d forgotten
Or nothing had happened at all

Encore after effects of a new year
Follow and move to the flow now
This is the reason we came here
Everything’s moving but slowed down

What was I doing without you
Nothing made sense and I guess that
It didn’t before but I liked it
And nobody stuck to the plan

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]

Damn sure this is the night that you miss out
This is the time you think too long
That one was different I’ll hang on
For sure this time

Call back over the top and you’re too sure
Making it up as you go now
One time only let’s stay here
And never be lonely again
Track Name: Number One
Lyrics
[Verse 1]

I settled on a better way to help me pass the time
These days without you make me feel like I am gonna lose my mind
I can’t focus on anything else anymore
Looking out the window hoping soon I’ll see you coming to the door

[Prechorus 1]

Cause when I first saw you
We were already friends
I knew you saw me too
So I just went up and said

[Chorus]

Holy shit, you’re just like me do you want to hang out?

[Verse 2]

I like going out when it’s raining when it pours
You only like the sunshine and I like that even more
There’s always something going on and I’m not always sure what it’s about
But as long as you’re here with me everything is always going to work out

[Prechorus 2]

Cause when we first met
There was no other way
I knew our paths were set
So I just had to say

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]

I know that you’ve got problems and they get the best of you
And I guess I’ve got problems and sometimes they can get overwhelming too
I’m easy to track down if you ever feel insecure
I know you’ve got my back and I’m sure that you know I’ve always got yours

[Prechorus 3]

Cause when I first saw you
We were already friends
I knew you saw me too
So I just went up and said

Holy shit, you’re just like me do you want to hang out?
Track Name: Everyone's in Love With You
[Verse 1]

I introduce you to my friends
And that's the last I see of you
All the world's discovered my big secret
Everyone's in love with you

They're fascinated by your smile
They copy all the things you do
I wish that you and I could be together, but
Everyone's in love with you, yeah
Everyone's in love with you

[Chorus 1]

God gives, God's wise
The way that she smiles
It should be no surprise
At work, at home
I'm introduced to so and so
But you're the one they want to know

[Verse 2]

I'm jealous and a little proud
I want to kill and kiss you too
You belong to everyone who meets you
Everyone's in love with you

[Chorus 2]

God gives, God takes
Don't misunderstand I'm a satisfied man
So sweet, so strange
I guess I'll never understand the things she does to all my friends

[Verse 3]

I'm jealous and a little proud
I want to kill and kiss you too
You belong to everyone who meets you
Everyone's in love with you
