Track Name: Bergman Summer
Bergman Summer

When early in the morning
And you can't move this
Feeling that you've been losing
All your secrets
You’re used to brooding
Who was the selfish one
Sometimes you play the victim for fun

I am no one I am no one
I am no one I am no one

Honey I know you've been heartbroken
But don't drink the poison it's gonna be alright
I think that I have found my purpose
I'll just wait here for love to surface

I am no one I am no one
I am no one I am no one

Honey why don't you come on over
I want to hold you tight
Let's stay up till sunrise
Forget those hard nights and the morning light

I am no one I am no one
I am no one I am no one

Summertime and it feels alright
Summertime and I feel alright
Summertime feels alright
Summertime I feel alright
Summertime feels alright

Track Name: It's a Powerful Thing
It’s a Powerful Thing

Nothing to hide, nothing but lies
The dark in your eyes is the dark of my night
Nothing but size
Matters at all
I think I'll fall in

Are you an artist
Or just in love
Are you an artist
Or just in it for the fame

It's a powerful thing
It's a powerful thing
To be in love

You’re tired of feeling useless
Listening to Kimbra
You laughed at all the Hari Krishnas and My Love
Breakfast is useless when you’re alone in SoHo
Walking down the street with your headphones
Turned up to Kanye West on repeat
When really you are no one
And you know

It's a powerful thing
It's a powerful thing
To be in love with fame

It's the name of the game
Like the distant moon
She moves you move
An arresting groove
Someday I will know

lyrics by noah engel
Track Name: Things Fall Apart
Things Fall Apart

Waking up with your face full of love
Shaking up with your face full of blood
And you howl just like the wolf
And your power is now wearing off

Things fall apart
But not in your heart

Will I ever learn how to live alone
Could I ever be trusted on my own
Since I had these thoughts deep in the grove
Your legs all covered in mud

Things fall apart
But not in your heart

The forest is moving the sun
The tides of the seasons have come
You wish that you'd seen him you won
This powerful dreaming has begun

Now your whispering loud
Thoughts grown inside so loud
And I can barely hear them somehow
What's with this feeling anyhow
I can't shake it

Waking up with your face full of love
Shaking up with your face full of blood

Things fall apart but not in your heart
Not in your heart

lyrics by noah engel
Track Name: After Song For Woody
After Song For Woody

I'm lost I'm lost 
And I know it complete
I think with my heart
But I walk with my feet
I won't get very far just digging deep
I want to go home
Get a good night sleep, oh lord

What's the struggle with comitance
You've been sized ambivalent
All my worries are stronger
Than the waves at night
It seems to take a life
It seems to take a life
To get it right
To get it right

I'm lost I'm lost 
and I know it complete
I think with my heart
But I walk with my feet
I won't get very far just digging deep
I want to go home
Get a good night sleep oh lord

lyrics by noah engel
Track Name: Doo Wop
Doo Wop

Sometimes I feel like the house is on fire
And often I've tried to climb higher and higher
Don't call me a liar but the house is on fire

You’re my ride or die 
Be by your side
Every single night
I've often tried
To hold you tight
What's going on
What's going on
Marvin said it the best
When he took the last train home
I feel so alone

What's with this romantic feeling
Romantic healing
Romantic healing

In the deep of the night
You say you’re alright
When it gets in your eyes
This feeling you can't hide
Most of the time
We try to sympathize
Begin to realize
It don't feel right

Sometimes I feel like the house is on fire
And often I've tried to climb higher and higher
Don't call me a liar
The house is on fire
The house is on fire

It feels like we're losing time
As smoke gets in your eyes
I never knew it could fall down

I've tried to climb higher and higher
But the house is on fire
(What's with this romantic feeling)
(I need romantic healing)

lyrics by noah engel
Track Name: Running Back
Running Back

I'm no play thing
But I really want you to sing
I never thought that you'd understand me now
Understand me now, understand me now

Somehow I've fallen in the dirt
I want to pick me up
Someone to pick me up
Somehow I've fallen in a rut

If it's not the right time when will it ever be
You are so close to me
I need your company, just need your company

Out there were lying in the sand
With the dirt on our hands
And the running back and the running back
I don't want none of that, don't want none of that

A river so bright, the sun was up all night
But you were too uptight
I want you next to me, just want you next to me

Oh with the breakdown I want you back now
(I know it's been so rough I want you back now)

lyrics by noah engel
Track Name: Open Up
Open Up

I count cars on the highway
While you quietly disdain
In the midst of pain
We all feel ashamed

In the throws of love
You open up

Past and future blend
An ocean with no end
Circle mirror bends
Backpack color red

Oh great mother of time
I am your child

In the jaws of love
You open up

I dreamed of you
Before pain was through
I called on you
In the throws of love

You’re opening
It's opening
Opening

lyrics by noah engel
Track Name: Ophelia
Ophelia

Sitting by his bed while the poison rushed through his head
Socrates died for the truth
Oh youth sweet youth, my time is running loose
Give us our daily bread and forgive us of our debts
The fruits of life, the fruits of death

With arms to the sun
How can I tell when it’s begun

Mirrored sky warms the night
Your Mother said she always wanted to play Ophelia
But instead all they did was try to feel her up
I’m over wanton love I’ve had enough
I’ve had enough, I’ve had enough

With arms to the sun
How can I tell when it’s begun

Power power power

lyrics by noah engel
Track Name: Spencer's Party
Spencer's party

The last time I saw the girl that I love
She spoke with her violent tongue
And I was soaked in the pangs of love
Soaked like the sheet soaked the bleach
Soaked like the moon soaked the beach
Soaked like Galileo truth just out of reach
Now my head was soaked on the floor
I don't know will I ever love anymore

The last time I saw the girl that I love
She looked at me down from above
She took me aside to discuss
She's got someone else to make her blush
And wake her up when she's slept too much
And to fill the spaces where I could never fit
And she said she tried but now she quit
And she hit me when I told her to split
But I confess I confess without you I'm a mess
And I'm not sure if I could love
Anymore

lyrics by noah engel
Track Name: My Love
My Love


I

I want to run so far away
From the magazine page
Saint Beverly and her sun daze

I just want love
All I want is love

My dad made me read Franz Kafka when I was seven
I was confused and scared but Gregor kept on living
Please lead me not toward cynicism though I may sin sometimes
Give me the strength to love
I'm trying


II

I want to be the sun
And find it all alright
I want to be moon
Under the sapphire night
I want to be the highway
Upon which we ride
I want to give you my love

How can I get to you
Share this life these thoughts this view
I’ve been waking up early
Trying to catch the sunrise
I want to be the sun and find it all alright
I want to share this love
Share this beautiful life

My love, my love

We all want to be free
but we just can not be

We all want to be free
But don’t know how to be


Sometimes you just can’t see
Sometime you just don’t see
Love is the answer
Love is the answer

Vulnerable
Make me feel
Vulnerable
Once again
So vulnerable
In love
And vulnerable
Once again, once again

Out of this pain and confusion
Its so hard to feel
All of this pain and confusion
I can’t get no relief
So much pain and confusion
It’s really getting to me
So much pain and confusion
It’s really getting to me


III

Fear and Pity
So many just don’t see
Fear and Pity
It doesn’t have to be
Fear and Pity
I just want feeeeeeel

Loved by my Girl
Loved by my Friends
Loved by my Mom
Loved by my Dad
Loved by my Sister
Loved by my Dog

Loved when I walk down the street
When no ones walking with me
Loved when I’m feeling alone
Loved on the telephone
You are loved you are loved
You are loved you are loved

Find Freedom in love
Find faith in love
Find inspiration in love
Find creation in love
Find creation in love
Find creation in love
