Track Name: The New You
you have definitely changed
could barely recognize you from before
you have infinitely changed
no one you know now
knows your real name anymore

and it's cool, i still want the new you

i'm really glad to hear you say
you're moving away from that tired scene
reminiscing on the early days
the rivers running down our faces sparkling

and it's cool, I still want the new you

you shed your skin to shake your chains
we mourn the parts we used to play
there's nothing time wont take away
but what is true will never change
we mourn the parts we used to play
but what is true will never change

so no matter what you do, i want the new you too
i want the new you, i still want the new you
Track Name: About Power
Patch of palms rockin right along
and just beyond on the horizon
powder moon won't light up yet
not til the sun decides it's time for him to set
purple sky, a lullaby
won't someone put that kid to bed?

Oh, don't begin debasing your better self now
don't hold me down, don't drown me out
if it's about power, I'm getting bigger by the hour

I've been all of them, I've been none
content to rest my laurels on another's rising sun
you pull impatiens from their legs
so you can watch them wither in a pretty vase

Oh, don't begin debasing your better self now
don't hold me down, don't cut me out
if it's about power, I'm getting bigger by the hour
Track Name: Sunny Somewhere
we hate the shape of a line
when you're near I'm feelin fine
but this party isn't mine
when you're near I'm feelin fine

even when the sun sets on a lonely sea
the temperature gets a little warmer
than it used to be

and I know it's sunny somwhere
i only wish that you would take me there
I know it's sunny somewhere

I hate to wait in line
searching for a sign
and I feel like I am running out of time
and I just realized this party isn't mine

what if i never end up with everything i want
will i know when to call it quits
how and where to move on

cuz i know its sunny somewhere
i only wish that you would take me there
i know its sunny somewhere

isn't a little bit a little better than nothin at all?
my heart will never settle so a little bit
won't make it any better
my heart will never settle down

even when the sun sets on a lonely sea
and the temperature gets
a little warmer than it used to be

and i know its sunny somewhere
i only wish that you would take me there
i know its sunny somewhere

i know its sunny somewhere
but you ain't ever gonna get me there
but i know its sunny somewhere
