23 (D. Odigie) long time since those days when she used to call me from downstairs i’m waiting on it sunset half a case come pick me up spinning out in all the wrong ways we worry about all the wrong things these days are different honest i miss the way we were time slips fast i feel inside out i wanna make it last with you I wanna feel like we were 23 i wanna be as free as we seemed i wanna live for the night only with you i want everything coming easy see the world as more than it seems i wanna live for the night only with you i never knew that someday we would be so separate after all we have seen and everyday everything i read i want it back standing now in all of their lines grow up buy a car buy you a house then why are we more lost right now than ever before time slips fast i feel inside out i wanna make it last with you I wanna feel like we were 23 i wanna be as free as we seemed i wanna live for the night only with you

Where You Go 04:19
Where You Go (D. Odigie) they say I’m all or nothing they could be right One moment’s all emotion Next thing I wake up running But now with you it’s different I’m here I’m here to stay Before now I was always changing Looking out for a new face Anyone who could fill the space It’s always been your shape No matter where you go I’ll be right beside you Even with my eyes closed I can always find you I could never let go I would never try to Even if you let go I’ll be right beside Oh oh oh I could never let go I would never try to One day I’m sure you’ll wonder If they could be right If I could turn from thunder Back into open skies To me it’s so simple I’m here I’m here to stay Before now I was always phasing on the move for a new place but you’re the one who can fill the space its always been your shape No matter where you go I’ll be right beside you Even with my eyes closed I can always find you I could never let go I would never try to Even if you let go I’ll be right beside Oh oh oh I could never let go I would never try to half my life’s been spent dreaming you can’t blame me when waking up is telling it’s taking all of my quiet my mind and I get under these covers like no other damn right sometimes it’s frightening being in my skin timing’s not great there’s ups though there’s no perfect world so i make one for us all this weight on me makes me soar off this sidewalk it’s so goddamn palpable

Touch of the Sky let me out i’ll walk away and say my name stand in my own place i want to face it i want it up high a touch of the sky the reason why i came from what i made and i can’t be inside my only mind it’s like i’m inside out i’m on the ground and all the avenues have seen my shoes its gotta be some time for me to stop oh oh right i’ll take it for myself a way to say my name and stand in my own place the world won’t face me i want it up high like all of the time police in all our way cover our days and i can’t be the only eyes to see i try to take my own advice but we all in the news kid size - his tennis shoes under a sheet on top its got to stop oh oh right

Waves 04:06
Waves (D. Odigie) i can’t walk this way by myself its taking some weight off to be silent inside of your arms it makes me want to cry your body’s straight out of university i missed so much Can you teach me i’ll keep my eyes permanently fixed on you Tell me what to make of you Tell me what I do now that you are all mine i look in the mirror sometimes when you touch me so i can believe the way you love me the way you get lost inside i can’t walk this way by myself its taking some weight off to be silent inside of your arms it makes me want to cry

Winter 03:46
Winter (D. Odigie) let the winter go by want to get to the summer and we stay up all night will we ever recover woman you and me are right we’re the one for each other how do i know it? there’s a way in your eyes oh it’s ever too familiar a light in your smile that i somehow remember and loving all night undeniable tender how do you do it? you walk me right to the moon and i’ll likely never resume my life pre me and you it’s all right i believe never too soon lately i been kinda through with timing its really all in our minds you’re so real you’re real i was just a little child reaching out for the tv looking everywhere around and i never could see it dreaming of you like i’m now only one that could be it you were just a baby and its kinda strange all the years of delay but you and me were made to fit around each other fold as we lay how do you do it? you walk me right to the moon and i’ll likely never resume my life pre me and you it’s all right i believe never too soon lately i been kinda through with timing it’s really all in our minds you’re so real you’re so real

Sweat 03:31
Sweat (D. Odigie I can’t help it if I sweat to the music I can’t help it if I sway when I lose it I can’t help it if it sinks under my skin i wanna forget All of the days when I wasn’t dancing Or on the other hand maybe I should remember So I do not return never forget When my shirt was dry and I thought I could hide From myself but everywhere that I tried To run away there I was I ain’t perfect But that ain’t nothing When you learn to love it If you’re dancing with me you might get wet Cause I can’t help it if I sweat I can’t help it if I cry when you leave me I can’t help it if the song that you’re singing Pull the trigger on the hurt oh lord Make me wanna forget When the sun rises I’ll hop in the ride To all the places I uncovered your lies now you’re gone And ain’t nobody perfect But now we Ain’t nothing And I’m learnin’ to love it if you’re dancing with me you might get wet Cause I can’t help it if I sweat Oh underneath the blue lights i can’t feel the way i did all these days that i tried to let you go you’re not real its running me around color up this town you were the light of my life now it’s time to turn you all the way off one time to your lying side one time to the banging beat one time to the new horizon one time to the masterpiece the one that you used to be

Place to Be 04:23
Place to Be (D. Odigie) we hush our mouths or say it louder there's a language we're looking for but i can't endure this way no the truth is that i can't stay it’s obvious how we gonna work this out it’s a wonder how we're gonna go without you talk with your eyes but you're the reason i've gone blind wonder if it’s the moon that’s shaping or if it’s just been shaking me oh to be the one that's breaking to be the one without a place to be get around it we swore in time we could get it right and save us from ourselves but you talk to me now from the street such hard lines in between you and me now that we are vacant strangers oh to who we used to be oh and i'm the one that's breaking i'm the one without a place to be and i can't bear to let you find me out find me out find me out can't find me out i wonder if it’s all we make it or if it’s just who we were meant to be oh when i'm the one who's breaking oh I’m the one without a place to be and i can't bear to let you find me out find me out find me out can't find me out oh oh oh oh oh oh

Midnight Lightning (D. Odigie, A. Agin) I am a storm on the sea As you stand so still so soft I reach With hands so cold so lonesome I need you Cause I am a storm I would change for you If you want me I'll give it all I’ve got I can only be myself but I want to be the thing that you need i’ll make it better If you let me I wanna rest with you in the light under the brightest sky I’m done with the dark I’m leaving my pride behind And gently I will love you Hear me say Come closer don’t fear me I know that I’ve been raining I would change for you if you want me I'll give it all I’ve got I can only be myself but I want to be the thing that you need i’ll make it better If you let me I am the midnight lightning You come like the morning You calm
