You + Me EP

Most of these songs were written during the same time as my 2011 album Distant Homes. At the time, I felt that they did not fit with that album so I did not complete these songs. In 2013, I spent some time going through my old material and I decided that I liked these songs enough to bring them back to life in the form of this EP.

Track Name: The Only One
Here we are alone again
Hoping that this night won't end

There's nothing else we need, just you and me
So take your hand in mine, it's our time to shine

Dancing here with me
'Cause I know that you're the only one
The only one
Heart and mind in love
'Cause I know that you're the only one
The only one

Let's lock our hands, take off our shoes
No one's watching how we move
Creeping toes across the floor
Let's shut the world out, shut that door

There's nothing else we need, just you and me
So take your hand in mine, it's our time to shine
Track Name: Tongue-Tied
The first time that I saw your face
You were far away from me
That image of you caught my eyes
So I got closer to see

But I can't make the words come out
'Cause I just really don't know how
To tell you what it is I'm feeling now

If love at first sight is really true
Then it led me all the way to you
But I watch you just pass on by
'Cause my tongue is still tied

And every time I see you now
I don't know what to say
'Cause you are just so beautiful
In every single way

But some day you will notice me
At least that's what I hope
If I had the guts to talk to you
Then maybe you would know

How my heart is pulled to yours
There's nothing out there I want more
I know I've never felt this way before

But I saw you hold his hand
It's hurts to see you out there with another man
I was just a bit too late
Maybe next time I will have some better fate
Oh, woah
Track Name: Time To Go
Sooner or later
There will be a time
Where we'll be apart
But I won't let that
Stop my heart from loving you

And when it's time to go
You'll be on my mind, I know
I'll be by your side, just wait
We can make it through these days

Where we'll go
I don't know
It's a lonely road
That I'll follow
But we will find
After time
That you and I
Can makes this right

It starts to feel like
That time gets farther and farther away
But I know I won't
Let that day get out of my sight

So please just hold tight
To these memories of when I'm near
'Cause soon they'll be back
To reality when we're both here

So trust me please
I know you'll be
Back together with me
So please stay strong
It won't be long
Until you're in my arms
Track Name: Don't Tell Me
Well that's fine
You're holding a hand that's not mine
You're looking into those eyes
With a new found passion this time

You're calling me
And saying all the ways he makes you happy
About every touch and kiss
I want to stop hearing all this

Don't tell me things that I don't want to know
You don't need me 'cause you know where to go
Don't tell me things that I don't want to know

I'm sick of this
Just cut out telling me this shit
Do you think it's helping me get through
This new life without you?

Just give me time
Just let me make these feelings unwind
Just give me distance to move ahead
This new life without you

It's good that we both found
Someone to build our lives around
I just think that we need this space
To figure out this newer place
We sent each other here
Track Name: Letter
I miss you
I miss the things we used to do
I miss what we used to be
I miss holding you close to me
I miss your smile
I miss staying up all night
I miss watching all the stars
I hope you read this, wherever you are

I write these sentences from my heart
Because I wish you weren't so far
As these words pour out of my pen
The more I want you back again
So I neatly fold the note
And put it in the envelope
I carefully apply the stamp
And press it down with my right hand
Though I'd rather hold yours

I miss your eyes
I miss wiping the tears they cry
I miss your voice's perfect sound
I miss it more than ever now
I miss the sunsets that we saw
Holding you close until the dawn
Please believe the words you read
'Cause soon you'll be right there with me

I've never hurt this much
I'm begging for your touch
I will ll try not to give up
I know I'll be home soon
I'll be right there for you
Yeah, I'll be right there for you
Track Name: Perfect Sunrise
I open up my eyes today
Feel the light of the sun rays
Blue skies open up above
To shelter us in it's warm love

And every morning with you we can
Make it be this way
I'll tuck you in the covers
And I know you'll find a brand new day

You can sleep alone tonight
I will let you close your eyes
'Cause we will step into your dreams
I will be there right behind
And I'll be there tomorrow
On this perfect sunrise with you

And when you lie down on your bed
A thousand thoughts run through your head
Almost just the same as mine
Just nine hundred ninety nine

But that one thought which got away
Is your fear of losing me
I promise you that's nothing that should
Ever make you feel worry

I promise that one evening
I'll be next to you all night
And I promise in the morning
I will wake up at your side
I'll hold on tight to you
I'll hold on tight to you
I'll hold on tight to you
To you
