Track Name: Lit Up
Can I tell you a secret
I cried myself to sleep last night
I hope that you can keep it
'Cause I don't want you to change your mind

I don't know what else to do
Some simple things are hard to do

Late that afternoon
I caught you running by your house
I thought 'what should I do?'
And boy, my heart was running fast

I could not believe so suddenly
I'd get that opportunity

You preoccupied my mind
I was paralyzed, lit up inside
I never felt so alive, never felt so dead
Standing there staring
But you caught me dancing

I'd been left defenseless thinking I could find the words
But I'd been wrong before and I was then
You were so content in knowing you got under my skin
But I believed in luck until that I cannot begin to comprehend
But you caught me dancing
You caught me red handed
Track Name: The Icelandic Twins
We'll all be walking backwards
But I can't find my feet
You leave us for the summer
Icelandic sounds so sweet

Don't freeze your feet off on the way
'Cause I know you'll be back again someday

You leave this place to study
That is not a sin
Don't forget your buddy
Don't forget your twin

I cannot tell you which one's which
Because that's half the fun of it

Don't ask me what to do with my time
'Cause I know it's better not to ask why

You'll watch the sunset from a coast
Of a much colder beach than most

Don't ask me what they do with their time
'Cause I know it's better spent than mine
Track Name: Drop!
All my friends are going down and they want me to drop
But I will not, I will not
Long brown hair in a ponytail but never in a knot
When it gets hot, it gets hot

All my friends are going down and they want me to drop
I'll give it the best that I've got
Painted nails and rosy cheeks, I've never felt so weak
But I won't drop, I won't drop

I won't drop, I won't drop

And neither should you...

When the whole world is going down, they'll want you to drop
But don't stop, just don't stop
I see your legs in tennis shorts, it puts me out of sorts
When it gets hot, and it gets hot

And you get hot, but I won't drop

And neither should you...
Track Name: The Lakeshore Bell
I climbed the fence to the swings
I walked past so many things
Children and dogs run and play
I passed them all on my way

It didn't take long to recognize
The bell I'd seen so many times
I could see miles of memory
I tried to climb the maple tree

But I know I'm the only one that needs to know the truth
About the bell that no one seems to use

The Lakeshore bell...

Time goes on and seasons change
And thinking of those things today
Do you recall those star-filled skies
That lit our skin and reflected in our eyes

But I know I'm the only one that needs to know the truth
About the bell that no one seems to use

The Lakeshore bell...
Track Name: Turn to Dust
Start it again and take a stab at the light
Slowly begin to curse the end of the night
Hollow hearts don't learn
But ashes made to burn
Will cover all of us and our bodies with dust
Like them

Return to the sound of her voice wishing on an eyelash
That someday she'll be with a boy who will do what she asks
Wishful eyes just yearn that one day they'll get their turn
To cover all of us like an aqueduct of tears

Haven't slept a wink but you know just why
Now she is sealing her fate to the sky
I won't hold my tongue any longer while we're still young and loved
'Till midnight comes and we both turn to dust
Again
Track Name: You Caught Me Dancing
If I told you a secret
Would you keep it between you and I
Tell me you believe it
And keep it locked away inside
I don't have the words to say
The alphabet seems far away

Late that afternoon
I kissed you in the pouring rain
We start to sing in tune
And things won't ever be the same
Count it from the bottom up
At night we both turn back to dust

You preoccupied my mind
Ever since that night my heart's been racing
I never felt so alive, never felt so dead
Standing there staring
But you caught me dancing

I'd been left defenseless thinking
You would come around
But I'd been wrong before and I was now
Things were up in air for weeks
You sat up on that fence
I believed in you until that I cannot continue to pretend
But you caught me dancing
