Track Name: Sleepy Sailor [A-Side]
Lay down your head upon my shoulder
Draw me into your pretty mind
I'll get you to sing before the evening's over
When all is alright, when all is aligned

Bring me on down to where we connect
Down by the river, on board the deck
Of my little sailboat with you my first mate
I am your carp and you are my bait

Play sleepy painter upon your new light
Sing for your sailor into the night
Who are we to question what's wrong and what's right
We're simply human's my pretty paper kite

Now that we've sang the night is still young
And when all's said and done you're still my only one

Bodies are empty without love
But our hearts are still beating in skies up above
Track Name: All of This Time [B-Side]
i could climb a mountain
And breathe in a different altitude
With all of this anxiety in me

I think about you daily
And I think about you nightly
I miss both the colors of the sea

The water flows and lava streams
As I dwell upon my torturous dreams
I cannot stop my mind from circling

I love you so, don't let me go
I know you love me too, I know
But the days pass so slow when you're not here

All of this time
To make sad and lonesome rhymes
With my hand sharpened pencil and mind

I feel like I'm betraying you
Cause I'm afraid of what you do
But please know I trust you, I'm just insecure
You're my love around the world

Well, when you come back, stay
And please pirate don't say
That my heart was raided on the waves

I love you, you're my light
And I know we're wrapped up tight
But for once you cannot light this cave
