Track Name: WaterWeight
Are those footsteps that I hear coming?
Is this evening still up to something?
I can't see much from the floor
I just want to feel like I once did before

I'm hearing words come out of people many I don't know
I'm in a lighthouse overseeing all who walk below
But there's one thing that still lingers here in my head

I am bound by WaterWeight
And I've been told that's OK

Even monsters leave a light on
And dream of others that they can count on
I've learned numbers that don't exist
Because I'm counting the minutes that you are missed

I'm sitting restless watching the white that winter presents
Ignoring all the jokes it's making all at my expense
Now I lay here on my bed with no one else nearby
Just be sure to say your name before you wave goodbye

I am bound by WaterWeight
And I've been told that that's OK

It's too bright to not see you the moment you walk by (oh)
It's too bright to not observe when you walk by
When you walk by, because

I am bound by WaterWeight
Cause I've been told that that's OK
If you can capture the heart of man
Then darling catch me if you can
Track Name: The Mango Tree
When love is hanging by a string
By all the warmth that life can bring
From all the ships where we set sail
Comes all the ink sent in the mail

When all the world is turned on high
And you're watching all your life go by
When your heart and mind just don't agree
Meet me at the mango tree

When all I have is all you've got
You know my love is worth a lot
If my voice is soft enough
We can watch the moon come up
The moon come up

When moments turn into a year
I wonder how we once got here
And when your heart and mind just don't agree
Meet me at the mango tree

When you laugh and when you cry
I always end up so tongue tied
And when you lay here in my arms
You know that you are out of harm's way

When you find a calm amongst the storm
Baby I feel like a newborn
And when your heart and mind just don't agree
Meet me at the mango tree

The mango tree
The mango tree
The mango tree
The mango tree
Track Name: Grow
I hear your voice, your beautiful call
I'm so glad I could touch you again before they let me fall
This bed doesn't feel like home to me
I can't sense you to my left and I can hardly breathe

The car swerved left when ours saw green
Those flashing lights oh god they were bright
They're the last thing I've seen

Everyone goes it's just my turn
It's my fire don't let yourself get burned
When your body's aching and you can't stop yourself
Use me to grow

You'll always be my daughter my pride and joy
God I can't wait till you graduate and when you meet that boy
You can carry me in that little pot of stone
Yours to keep yours to release yours to own

Everyone goes it's just my turn
It's my fire don't let yourself get burned
When your body's aching and you can't stop yourself
Use me to grow

And when the times get rough
And you've had enough
Listen to the melody I wrote for you

And when I leave you at the gate
And you want to escape
Just remember I'll see you soon

Everyone goes it's just my turn
It's my fire don't let yourself get burned
When your body's aching and you can't stop yourself
Use me to grow
Track Name: Upside
Past the room door lies a cold war
And your eyes send a bold remark
And the ghosts sing all the strangest things
They're the loudest when in the dark

My body's old and my mind is older
And the warmest hearts still take their time

Do you feel the upside?
In reaching to the outside.
Do you feel the upside?
To know what true love feels like

It's been said before
That you can't ignore what the future holds
And all you know

How will you receive what the conscience believes?
Well I'm sure birds were scared to look below

They're on the wall and I won't read at all
And the best of us will all find their way

Do you feel the upside?
In reaching to the outside.
Do you feel the upside?
To know what true love feels like

(Ooh)

Do you feel the upside?
In reaching to the outside.
Do you feel the upside?
To know what true love feels like
