about

SPRING was written with four very specific themes in mind: young love, new beginnings, growth, and celebration. Of the four seasons albums it may also have the largest sonic palette - more synthesizers are introduced, the guitar and percussion work is more varied, and there is a huge dynamic range in between, for instance, the quaint uke balladry of "Prince Edward County" and the joyful bombast of opener "We Go Together" (which features 49 of Andrew's friends and fans making noise alongside him). Spring is efflorescence, optimism, elation, and ultimately, triumph.

Track Name: We Go Together
we go together

well, you're no gentle rose
no moonlit sky that glows
no poetry, no prose
but i don't want any of those

you're no sun on the rise
no cloud, no ocean tide
no summer day or night
you're just a beautiful girl and that's all

we go together

well, you’re no zealots mad
no bureau ironclad
you’re no prim aristocrats
but i don’t want any of that

and you’re no guiding light
no entourage behind
you’re not stern sentries at my side
we’re just a crew of misfits and that’s alright

o o o, o o o, o we go together
o o o, o o o, o it's alright

we go together

on the real real real
real real real
real real real
real real real
i need you

o o o, o o o, o we go together
o o o, o o o, o it's alright
Track Name: Lost Woods
farewell, my young companion
pray tell oh when will you return

i wanna work in the paper fields
and debase the glowing groves, oh oh
until a tree wants to talk to me
delineate his woes, oh oh
and then i go

i traversed the perils of earth
and became a cannonball
to find a city in the sky

i defeated the dragon
beat it and climbed the castle wall
to look into her empty eyes

farewell, my young companion
pray tell oh when will you return

i wanna learn how the magic works
and wake an ancient sword, oh oh
ride a horse through the open grass
assail the demon hordes, oh oh
you never know

i traversed the perils of earth
and became a cannonball
to find a city in the sky

i defeated the dragon
beat it and climbed the castle wall
to look into her empty eyes

farewell, my young companion
pray tell oh when will you return
Track Name: Nowhere
today i almost had you fooled
that everything was going to end
but it's not, no it's not

my shoes are always at your door
with pieces of the seasons in tow
dying trees, fallen snow

you'll always i'll always know
there's nowhere else for us to go

we used to never want to leave
i'd put the kettle on again
and just let it boil

but now the walls are closing in
the floral pattern starts to wilt
and we're stuck in the cobwebs

but you'll always i'll always know
there's nowhere else for us to go
there's nowhere else for us to go
there's nowhere else for us to go
there's nowhere else for us to go

'cause at the end of every day
i can see what's worth the fight
your crooked walls, my weathered shoes

you'll always i'll always know
there's nowhere else for us to go
you’ll always i’ll always know
there’s nowhere else for us
Track Name: Down
if you told me, i could let you go
if it took my twenties
there was one thing i wanted to know
if you would if you would if you would

don't be sorry that you let me down
i'll dance when the rain is coming down
you put up your walls, i'll take them down

maybe i will always wonder how we could be apart
we don't look the way we used to now
things will change, they'll change so slowly that they won't

don't be sorry that you let me down
i'll dance when the rain is coming down
you put up your walls, i'll take them down

don't be sorry that you let me down
Track Name: Prince Edward County
there was only one way home
darling, i would take your gloom and turn it bright
those blues that i had been so at fault to wreak

so i found you all alone
in the blueberry patch, a crimson in your cheek
i felt so weak; until i drew out a smile

hiding all the rain, hiding all the rain
here comes the sun over the hilltops
here comes the orchid that i know

i didn't know the blow i dealt, sealed away
your hurt became the memory i remembered this place by
though we drank a cider sweet

was there ever more you felt
darling, i would part your lips, the reddest sea
the sun in your teeth a shimmer of gold and white

hiding all the rain, hiding all the rain
here comes the sun over the hilltops
here come the wildflower and the rose

hiding all the rain, hiding all the rain
here comes the sun over the hilltops
here comes the bellflower that i ring for you
Track Name: 1999
all the boys and all the girls just want one thing, it's love
it's been a little while since we've been running with your drugs
i'll take you back in time to 1999 tonight
when i was ready to be yours and lose these sordid lights

but if you come around here
you'll see you don't mean anything at all to me
but you've been making it harder to go any farther
you choke and you bleed

all the boys and all the girls just want one thing, it's love
all the air and all the blood won't stop me packing up
i'll take you back to when we said we'd only have ourselves
but it seems now every heaven of mine is your hell

so if you come around here
you'll see you don't mean anything at all to me
but you've been making it harder to go any farther
you choke and you bleed
Track Name: Let's Never Be Apart Again
i stepped off of the train tonight and there you were
in a perfect pair of jeans and your roommate's shirt
i was only gone three days, but still it hurt
o, let's never be apart again

hey hey hey hey hey hey
let's never be apart
hey hey hey hey hey hey
you know it breaks my heart

i walked into the church today in my sunday best
friends and family on both sides of your perfect dress
o, i only saw you last night but i confess
i'm thinking let's never be apart again

hey hey hey hey hey hey
let's never be apart
hey hey hey hey hey hey
you know it breaks my heart

i know we're supposed to get all bored and old
our bed, the weather and our shoulders cold
but i suggest, if i may be so bold, that we break the rules

hey hey hey hey hey hey
let's never be apart
hey hey hey hey hey hey
you know it breaks my heart

i came back home from work tonight and saw you there
with a train set in your hands and paint in your hair
and i just saw you this morning but i don't care
i'm saying let's never be apart again
Track Name: Little Bird
little bird, tell me, where do you go
to get those colors of blue and gold
where do you find such beautiful clothes
o, little bird, tell me, where do you go

are you up in the maple trees
hanging them to dry in the spring breeze
are you mending up your nest
with your needle and thread

little bird, tell me, where do you go
to get those colors of blue and gold
where do you find such beautiful clothes
o, little bird, tell me, where do you go

are you up in the silver clouds
or hopping here and there down on the ground
are you gazing at the stars as you weave your yarn

little bird, tell me, how do you do
dressed so fine in gold and blue
those feathers look delightful on you
i can't tell if they're old or new

little bird, tell me, where do you go
to get those colors of blue and gold
where do you find such beautiful clothes
o, little bird, tell me, where do you go

o, little bird, tell me, where do you go
Track Name: Tamirys
o
if i could melt away the snow inside your heart
and put a beam of light from jesus in its place
i'm a traveler with a rucksack full of sparks
a drifter always dreaming of your face
o

o
if i could answer every question that you ask
with rainbow kisses from the pearly gates
but why would anything i say even be grasped
by children with no dinners on their plates
o
Track Name: If I Had Your Love
on and on, i play my song
and wait for you to come around
the sunlight in your hair
you waltz right in, your olive skin
is glowing like an ocean, calm
a diamond in your ear
you leave me dreaming here

if i had your love...

if i had your love
what else would i need?
if i had your love
there'd be no stopping me

are you just my roomie's best
or are we hanging out now too
i love to talk with you
so stay a while, you sweetly smile
like nothing else i've ever known
you had me at hello

if i had your love...

if i had your love
what else would i need?
if i had your love
there'd be no stopping me
Track Name: Anywhere
you’re lonely and i’m lonely
‘cause we’re only a girl and a boy
i’m swooning, pursuing
and these two things are hard to avoid

i had to ask, i had to know
to save us the heartache, to save us the grief
i had to ask, i had to know
if you could be anywhere, would you be with me?

i’m helpless and so selfish
but what else is as good as your love
you’re perfect, unnerving
deserving of much more than i have

i had to ask, i had to know
to save us the heartache, to save us the grief
i had to ask, i had to know
if you could be anywhere, would you be with me?

oh, oh, oh, oh

if you could be anywhere, would you be with me?
Track Name: Photographs + Maps
you're painting on the facts, leaving for a while
photographs and maps going out of style
cover up your tracks before you crack a smile

you're burning it down
you're falling apart
you're losing your mind
damning it all
you're giving it up

have you read this book written by the son
take a second look, you're not the only one

burning it down
you're falling apart
you're losing your mind
damning it all
you're giving it up

you cannot be confined to what you love and lend
you're leaving it behind, making it pretend

you're burning it down
you're falling apart
you're losing your mind
damning it all
you're giving it up

you're burning it down
Track Name: And Then The Sun Came
and then the sun came sun came
and then the sun came sun came
and then the sun came
Track Name: Spring
smell those blooms in the atmosphere
birds singing sweeter than strawberries
spring is here! spring is here!

big boots away, get your bike in gear
i bought zucchini seeds for you 'cause
spring is here! spring is here!

this is gonna be the best season of my life
everything i'm gonna do so well, do it right

give me that sun, give me that shine, woah
i could be yours, you could be mine, woah
if you're the one, it's the right time, woah
'cause spring has sprung
and you need ice cream on your tongue

get on the patio with a beer
everybody knows that's what you do when
spring is here! spring is here!

i got no problem with the cold of the year
except that it's cold and i'd rather know
spring is here! spring is here!

this is gonna be the best season of my life
everything i'm gonna do so well, do it right

give me that sun, give me that shine, woah
i could be yours, you could be mine, woah
if you're the one, it's the right time, woah
'cause spring has sprung
you make me feel so young
and so in love

give me that sun, give me that shine, woah
i could be yours, you could be mine, woah
if you're the one, it's the right time, woah
'cause spring has sprung

give me that sun, give me that shine, woah
i could be yours, you could be mine, woah
