Track Name: Shy
i tried to start in third again
i'm driving round with none of my friends
i'm sliding too fast round the bends, in the wet
it looks as if this might be the end

but every time i look in your eyes
i get a feeling i don't recognise
and i wonder if you feel it too
baby if you wanna tell me i'll be here for you

oh but the stars don't align
and i wanna talk to you but i am just too shy
so if my stomach wasn't upside-down
i would tell you that you're beautiful and ask you out of this town

i'm not really a subtle guy
so if you're sitting there and wondering why
i keep looking at you out of the corner of my eye
it's just that i-i-i

i'm wondering if you could be the one
and i'm speculating as to whether
you could be wondering something similar
about me

i wanna run away with you
really wanna run away with you
i know you've got things to do
but i'll forget mine if you'll forget yours too

and if you run away with me
i might just believe
that joy is every step of the way
and galaxies burst at the seams with the love we've met

along the way

oh but the stars don't align
& now there's lonely people walking round with cardboard signs
they're yelling 'maybe she's the one for you'
isn't it obvious what you've gotta do?

yeah i know but i've been saying this whole time that the

stars don't align
and i wanna talk to you but i am just too shy
so if my stomach wasn't upside-down
i would tell you that you're beautiful and ask you out of this town
Track Name: Summer Pyjamas (& Some Are Not)
just a quick warning
i don't know what i'm doing in the morning
but yawning
should tell me that it's time for

better days, all the ways
anyone could make the world a better place
doing
anything that makes sense

i can't get to sleep, when the night is so hot
summer pyjamas, & some are not
maybe i'll text you, or write you a message in a bottle
it's not all bad

sunsets are something
summer says to show us
tomorrow is somewhere
everybody goes to

laughter, i'd love to
see you if it's past the afternoon
with me you
are the only person in the room

can't get to sleep, when the night is so hot
some are pyjamas, & summer not
maybe a letter, written at a desk
and i'll improvise the rest

we'll be somewhere new today
it's something about How

(http://jonahmyers.bandcamp.com/track/something-about-how)

i wonder what the words to say
are thinking of us now
Track Name: Nevermind the Oxygen
yes, it's another day
that tends to happen, the usual way
but you're feeling so alone
don't know what road to take, or where to go

if you wanna see me, if you wanna care
never mind the oxygen, hope is in the air
if you wanna love me, baby let me know
i'll be the one for

oh, you could be my love
and we could know what we're dreaming of

i love you
like a sunday night
where the week & the weather look just right

your arm is so close to mine
and if you brush my hand,
well i just might

if you wanna see me, if you wanna care
if i was so fearless, travelling anywhere
if you wanna hold me, baby let me know
i'll be the one for

oh, you could be my love
and we could go where we're dreaming of

ba dap ba da dap

oh, lazy afternoon
we've found the weekend somewhere new (made it true/through)
just breathe in the wonder now
and feel what it's all about

if you wanna see me, if you wanna care
never mind the oxygen, hope is in the air
if you wanna hold/love me, baby let me know
i'll be the one for you
Track Name: Dum De Zah (feat. Thomas Colemanbell)
all the colours seem to
fall into place like something new
and every shape that i never understood
begins to make sense when i'm with you

i know we haven't known each other very long
i hope it's not inappropriate for me to write this particular song but
you... woo-ooh

dum de dah,
it's bizarre
& goodness me
how we

(we) fit together improbably perfectly
oh me,
oh my

(my) unlikely valentine
you're a world i long to find
what's the time?
something's right

so could you maybe please be someone
who is there for me

wow, i bet you weren't expecting this

waiter there's flies right in my soup
well maybe i'll wait all night for you
said maybe i'll wait all night for you
uh, there's nothing i wouldn't do

dum de dah
it's bizarre
& goodness me
how we

we fit together improbably perfectly
oh gee

dum de dah
& goodness me
dum de dah-ah-ah who-o-oa goodnes me
oh gee
Oh, I
