Stay Cool 02:32
I fall asleep and dream of what might be I’ll take everything and remember Stay cool Don’t be sad It’s all we’ll ever have Forever! I can sit still When the waves crash down on me I’ll take the thrill And tell your friends Stay cool Don’t be sad It’s all we’ll ever have Forever!

The other day I tried to tell you Exactly what I thought you should hear I’ll mind my P's and my Q’s, right? Until I stopped last year And it’s ok to be mad And it’s ok to feel so strange I’m making trouble I’m making trouble again I’m making trouble And I’m thinking up weird things to turn you on your head I’ll stop blaming my parents 'Cuz really it’s all up to me I was scared to make you nervous Until I stopped last year And it’s ok to be mad And it’s ok to feel so strange I’m making trouble I’m making trouble again I’m making trouble And I’m thinking up weird things to turn you on your head

We can see you had some fun Can’t think too clearly about what you’ve done Count the pieces and carry the one You know we’re watching you Yeah! They got to know They got to see You're not for us You're not for me They got to know They got to see You're not for us You're not for me He’s acting creepy at the show Acting strange and acting low Really he just has to go You know we’re watching you Yeah! They got to know They got to see You're not for us You're not for me They got to know They got to see You're not for us You're not for me Never is forever Never is forever

RIP Future 02:23
Lately, I can’t catch a break Too much keeping me awake How can they understand? How can they make demands? When they don’t know? And this is one wild ride Sipping tea and walking a fine line No fancy cars no pretty home No little garden to call your own But life is fine We can’t see eye to eye Those petty comments only make me sigh How can they understand? How can they make demands? When they don’t know? And this is one wild ride Sipping tea and walking a fine line No fancy cars no pretty home No little garden to call your own But life is fine Things were easier back then Can’t they see this twilight zone we’re living in How can they understand? How can they make demands? When they don’t know? And this is one wild ride Sipping tea and walking a fine line No fancy cars no pretty home No little garden to call your own But life is fine

Must Be Nice 02:31
I know it takes imagination To look outside a window and feel something for strangers It’s hard Harder than you realize To wanna hear a mob And only hear a sigh Hey, Mija Is there any consolation? When everything is bringing you down? Is it easy watching the flowers? Staying for hours with nothing much to say Must be nice It’s no secret you don’t have to keep it Hey, Mija Is there any consolation? When everything is bringing you down? Is it easy watching the flowers? Staying for hours with nothing much to say Must be nice

Was it a night like this? That you remember? Are you carried away? Believe in it forever If you see it If you see it I know what I know what's keeping you up at night The truth is The truth is shining like a light When everyone's the same What are you hiding for? Can they understand What’s in your secret world If they saw it If they saw it I know what I know what's keeping you up at night The truth is The truth is shining like a light It was the darkest night And you were out there Waiting for something more Then the sun came out Did it sing? Did it make you cry? Tell me Tell me why Up above Don't leave me forever Is nothing real? Up above Is it now or never? To live for real I know what I know what's keeping you up at night The truth is The truth is shining like a light

Who are you? To think you got to know me Who am I? To have trusted so blindly? I’ll tell myself again You’re overthinking it When life is playing games And I’ll dream about you On dark, dark days I’ll dream about you When I’m alone in bed at night Seeing you is seeing stars Takes me someplace very far When the dreaming is real Ghosts are real They can see right through you The memories are what I can’t divine Am I losing it? Or is it just pretend And everything is fine And I’ll dream about you On dark, dark days I’ll think about you When I’m alone in bed at night Seeing you is seeing stars Takes me someplace very far When the dreaming is real

Last year you were an angel to me Now you're a nightmare I can't unsee I was after your heart It fell apart And I know you stole my favorite sweater You put my love for you on trial And now I see you're stealing my style I was after your heart It fell apart And I know you stole my favorite sweater You're going to get what you deserve Cuz I know you're stretching out that sweater's neck hole Oh it's a crime You can borrow a dime And get your own finely knitted sweater

So this is permanence? Gonna cross it off my list I don't care if you don't think it's right Cuz a bad tattoo won't ruin my life It won't rub off And I don't care if I'm stuck with you So what's it all about? All the ink is drying out I don't care if you don't think it's right Cuz a bad tattoo won't ruin my life It won't rub off And I don't care if I'm stuck with you Existential tattoo of my dreams Don't ask me what it means It's real It won't rub off And I don't care if I'm stuck with you

Ride Or Die 03:06
Sometimes when I’m walking by myself Reeling Tired and a mess You know You always know what I’m thinking I’ve got..some worry on my mind Pacing Scared to spend a dime You know You always know what I’m facing And you’ll say it’s just a phase when We’re upside When the world sets us straight and it all comes down Each time--I think of you I’ll try and write you a song And you’re patient And try to sing along because you know you always know what I’m saying We’ve got very little time Racing working 9 to 5 You know You always know I’ll be waiting And you’ll say it’s just a phase when We’re upside When the world sets us straight and it all comes down Each time--I think of you
