Track Name: Slow.Steady
Slow down Son
You never used to need these things
Slow down Son
You never used to want these wings
You've grown up so fast
Can't say that I'm not proud
But slow down...

Slow down Son
You're moving way too fast
Slow down Son
Let's make moments like this last
You've been beat up by the miles
You wear them like a crown
But slow down...

Let's take it slow and steady
Let's take this slow and steady
You climb the walls I made for you
One day you will break right through
But now...
Slow down...
Track Name: Chelsea
I followed you and I think somebody knows
After the klatch on the boulevard
Tracing through the snow
Caught up to you and I think they figured it out
My hands are wringing
and my words are all scattered about

Let me go... with you

Pull it together the writer hits a key
Said it's your stage
But they're all pointing at me
I followed you to forge and plagiarize
I walked my way home from Chelsea
With open eyes
Track Name: All Along
If you're somebody I knew
Swear that I don't have a clue
You walked away much too soon
And I was left wondering
Every tree has a name
Bicycles, slingshots, and chains
Open up your window pane
You let the sun in

Oh, the timing seemed wrong
But you were there all along
I knew how to speak
And just how to lift up my feet
Oh, right there in your sight
When you looked back at me that night
You're an answer to plea
And tonight you'll be thinking of me

Riverbanks, light by the moon
Days all alone in my room
Is this too fast or too soon
I couldn't care less
Everything has it's place
Swiping the hair from your face
Feeling around for a trace
I'm suddenly weightless

I touched your face and you looked up to me and smiled
Back to the place where you told me you want to try
It's all so strange and so new and so real and right
I'm lost in space and you're thinking of me tonight
Track Name: Another Time
Let's go down to the old airline
We'll go where you want to go
Move my plans to your spare time
Your measure is apropos
And you reserve me
And I won't disagree

Let's sing songs from the time we met
I'll pretend I don't know the words
I'll sneak off for a cigarette
You'll tell me that I'm absurd
But you're here with me
And I won't disagree

The winter has caught us in
We'll read by the night light
Watch you as you drop your head
Dreams of angels and kite flights
And you're here with me
And I won't disagree
