about

One of the first times I composed an album around a theme, SUMMER is a simple but fun collage of carefree friendships, romantic getaways, and youthful nostalgia.

Track Name: Summer
new moms blowing bubblegum
kids running with their water guns
a little help from my friends and i get by
who can tell if we'll get too far
playing tunes in living rooms and bars
but i'm making moves in the summer of '09
and i don't want to go home yet

cotton dresses and a bubble tea
the sand sinking down under me
and not a whole lot of money to get spent
blue skies tell me how do you do
i've always got a love song for you
we get along so famously my friend
and i don’t want to go home yet
Track Name: I'm Not Going To Break Your Heart
when you hurt me back, the moonlight left the sky
your front door snapped shut, and all i could say was

i’m not going to let you go not going to let you go
just going to make you know the grandest love
i’m not going to give you you up not going to give you up
i need your touch your touch to live hey hey

well i could make you cry, but i’d rather make you dance
wipe the tears from your eyes, i’m telling you oh

i’m not going to let you go not going to let you go
just going to make you know the grandest love
i’m not going to break your heart not going to break your heart
this whole wide world is dark without you hey hey

well, you can call it true love
i’m never giving you up

i’m not going to let you go not going to let you go
just going to make you know the grandest love
i’m not going to break your heart not going to break your heart
i need this love that started all with you hey hey hey hey hey

uh hey uh hey uh woah
Track Name: Bride & Groom
hey there sweetheart
where are you laying your head

hey there
where are you laying your head

it’s gonna be obvious soon
a day as a bride and a groom
we get back from our honeymoon
you’re sleeping in my room

oh my darling
when will i see you again

oh my goodness
why do our dates ever end

it’s gonna be different soon
a day as a bride and a groom
we get back from our honeymoon
you’re sleeping in my room
Track Name: Oh No
don't you walk out of here
am i making myself clear
i know you don't like to listen
well that's not the part of you i miss

i've been thinking how foolish it is to be without you
if i'm always dreaming about you
every moment of my life

oh no oh no you didn't
just dream of something different
i know i made some mistakes
but you've made a heart that beats for you break

i've been thinking how foolish it is to be without you
if i'm always dreaming about you
every moment of my life

you say that you've had enough
but i don't think you know what's up
when this whole time we've both been aching inside
all our plans will come to nothing
if you're just here to give up
as if you actually tried

one day everything just changes
and we start running out of patience
who knows how or why it happens
still, love, i won't turn my back

i've been thinking how foolish it is to be without you
if i'm always dreaming about you
every moment of my life

you say that you've had enough
but i don't think you know what's up
when this whole time we've both been aching inside
all our plans will come to nothing
if you're just here to give up
as if you actually tried

i can't let go of you

i've been thinking how foolish it is to be without you
if i'm always dreaming about you
every moment of my life
Track Name: In The Sun
in the gut in the gut is where we lost the thinking cap
in the air in the air is where we have our sorrows to share

i’m a speck i’m a grain i’m a crumb i’m a mote i’m a trace
with my hands in my jacket parading down the straights

i had a long time i had a long time in the sun

take my hand
take my hand
what have i got left for you to take?
where’s my mind?
where’s your soul?

our bodies were in the back having heart attacks

speck i’m a grain i’m a crumb i’m a mote
i’m a trace of the love we used to have

i had a long time i had a long time in the sun
Track Name: 1997
well you look as good as me
but you’re not quite as tall
and if you never get a job
you’ll haunt the museum halls

let’s have some fun
i don’t know if there’s someone more perfect for me
it’s like i’m on a hidden camera show
and you could all be fooling me

all the clouds will rust and crumble
when we get to heaven
but i’ll love you always and forever
like it’s 1997

let’s have some fun
i don’t know if there’s someone more perfect for me
we’ll walk on through slush and snow
chasing skating dates that will never be

tell me you love me in your sleep

if i’d lost you in the reeds
i’d still have fallen hard

when summer’s here
we’ll stay up
‘til there’s nothing else our waking selves can say

tell me you love me in your sleep
Track Name: Sublet
my heart is upset that i won’t sublet
but i am not the man you love yet
this real estate is not for sale
i’m giving it away

one night is all it took to fall this far for anyone
you’re the culprit
it feels so great right now
to know i’m living just to say that

i will serve you
and i don’t deserve to
but i have no curfew
and there’s nothing else worth doing

i’ll serenade you
granting you know i can’t sing
but i can’t dance
and we went dancing
smile once for me, girl
i’ll be kissing you tonight

i’ll walk you home through the rain, and snow too
a fire or a war, there’s nothing i won’t do
’cause i want more than just to be with you hey hey

oh i will serve you
and i don’t deserve to
but i have no curfew
and there’s nothing else worth doing

anything you want i’ll give to you
Track Name: Stay
i am dreaming
of perfect summer air that we are breathing
and wheat stalks in the sun always gleaming

will you stay with me
will you be my love
and give me your hand to hold
will you stay with me
will you be my love
among the fields of gold

there’s not a damned thing
that’ll get between the two of us dancing
in heaven’s endless leas, so enchanting

will you stay with me
will you be my love
and give me your hand to hold
will you stay with me
will you be my love
among the fields of gold

my one and only

will you stay with me
will you be my love
and give me your hand to hold
will you stay with me
will you be my love
among the fields of gold

will you stay with me
will you be my love
Track Name: September 6th
i need your touch, babe, over and over
right here and right now and when we’re older
it’s been a long time since i first talked to you
and there is still nothing i’d rather do

well, here we are
we always knew we’d make it this far

this sacred union let nothing sever
you know i’ll love you love you forever
oh in the morning and in the afternoon
oh in the evening and underneath the moon

well, here we are
we always knew we’d make it this far
Track Name: Summary
we sang about the sun
we sang about the love we had and had not
we had a little fun
we had a little bit to drink when it was hot
will i see you next summer
when we all go out and play
we sang about we sang about the son on sunday morning
with tongues of fire
we sang about the good nights
had a couple bad ones too
but i always come back to you
we made a little promise
told our friends about it too
held our weddings kiss a few moments longer than you’d probably guess
Track Name: Slip Away
and if we're not too careful, these summertimes slip away
as the sun shines down on us day after day
Track Name: Goodbye
why does saying goodbye always feel so wrong?
why does saying goodbye always feel so bad?

we were meant to be

why does leaving your house always feel so strange?
why does leaving your house always feel so off?

we were meant to be
Track Name: I'm Going To Marry You
i’m going to marry you on a mountaintop
and as we reach the peak, that’s when the snow will stop
i’m going to look at you coming down that aisle
that’s made of sticks and stones
and we’re both going to smile
‘cause our love has begun
and we’ve been oh so careful with it

i’m going to marry you on a beach one day
every wave will laugh and the trees will sway
i’m going to make my vows
and we’ll be holding hands
the string quartet will play
and barefoot we’ll dance
‘cause our love has begun
and we’re still just children tonight

i’m going to marry you in our friends’ back yard
with puppies running loose, the patio door ajar
and i’m going to kiss your lips
and you’re going to kiss mine back
the sun will shine twice as hard
our friends will scream and clap
‘cause our love has begun
and there is no ending to it
