//Verse 1//

I feel like a failure

My mind is like a jailor

Keeping me locked away

Keeping me locked

 

My dreams are outrageous                

And I’ll never attain them

I should stay down to Earth

I should stay down

                                                    

//Chorus//

But I’ve known joy and this wondrous world

I’ve grown up in will make it through

And I think it gives our lives meaning 

So it’s…

Okay to be sad

 

//Verse 2//

I miss my mom and dad

Feels like it’s been years

Since I’ve been home sweet home

Since I’ve been home

 

The world’s been courageous

Despite all it faces

Still I feel lost and scared

Still I feel lost

 

//Chorus//

 

I miss my mom and dad

Feels like it’s been years

Since I’ve been home sweet home

Since I’ve been home!

 

//Final Chorus x2//

It's okay to be sad

UNION SQUARE PARK

//Verse// 

That night you told me that you loved me on the L train

And you kissed me on my roommates couch

Thinkin' this could be the night that it will all change

For the rest of my life you might be around

So I took you to my roof to see Manhattan

Saw your eyes light up just like that city sky

I was overwhelmed with fear of what could happen

But I’d be damned if I wouldn’t give it my best try

 

//Chorus//

Meet me in Union Square Park

No one else is there after dark

We could run and scream and love and dream

And speak true from the heart

Meet me there in Union Square Park

 

//Verse 2//

I feel like I’m a runaway from who I once was

I like this version of me with you the best of all

Nights before you were as cold New York winter

Now my life is more like New York spring or fall

 

//Chorus//

//Bridge//

The bar that’s in the laundromat

Don’t know how they managed that

A Variety of coffee strong and bold

Things that once were commonplace

Because of you that old rat race

Is now something special to behold

 

Meet me in Union Square Park

No one else is there after dark

We could run and scream and love and dream

And speak true from the heart

Meet me there in Union Square

Meet me there in Union Square

Meet me there in Union Square Park

//Verse//

Every thought in my head

Gets replaced by you instead

All my dreams in the world

Are better with my golden girl

 

But I’m so scared of the way

You make me sing love song clichés

So I’m waiting for that dreaded day

When you move on and move away

                         

//Chorus//

Cuz I can’t see you waiting for a boy like me

My head is full of fears and insecurities             

But I hope you stay, my golden girl

Ba-dum...

 

//Verse//

Every trip that I plan

Is you and me seeing far off lands

Coast to coast you by my side

A love that’s grown too big to hide

 

But I have been here before

And lost in all in love and war

So I fight myself on what I truly feel

Denying love so I can heal

                      

//Chorus//

 

//Bridge//

I’ve built walls high and tall

Around my heart so I won’t fall

But I will work to tear them down

Cuz what’s the point with no one else around

And I’ll meet you on the other side

Where we can fully share our lives

And I won’t live my life in fear

Of the unknown or the unclear

cuz...

            

Every thought in my head

Gets replaced by you instead

All my dreams in the world

Are better with my golden girl…

 

So I just hope you’ll stick around for a boy like me

My head is full of fears and insecurities

But I hope, you stay

My golden girl

 

Ba-dum...

When you have no words, You can talk to me

I know you were scared when you were, seventeen

That’s not the way it has to be

 

You’ll see the world, the seven seas

Discover things that you’d never dream

You’ll have the wind beneath your feet

                          

//Chorus//

Oh you’ve heard all your life your destiny is unknown

But in time you will find you deserve your throne

And you know I’m with you and with you I’ll stand

Cuz you know that you’ll reach your Neverland

Yes I know you’ll reach your Neverland

 

When picking up sticks turned to picking up chicks

And all your words lost their innocence 

You were lost, but you found your way

 

You heard the news that your music died

You hid away and you cry cry cried

Then you found your way!

 

//Chorus//

 

And I have mem-ry’s like a sweet perfume 

And how I wasted summer afternoons

Sometimes are hard but they’re gone so soon

 

And though our destiny’s unknown

it’s sure that a king deserves a throne

It won’t be long till I’m in neverland 

with you

                               

Oh you’ve heard all your life your destiny is unknown

But in time you will find you deserve your throne

And you know I’m with you and with you I’ll stand

Cuz you know that you’ll reach your neverland

Yes I know you’ll reach your neverland

Yes I know that we’ll reach our neverland

Neverland

WARNING SIGNS

//Verse// Baby it's upside down and I'm sorry for calling, but I don't know how I'm supposed to keep on walking.

They say the very thing that makes you will be the very thing that breaks you, and I've been hiding all my thoughts too... that you might have made me.

Life is passing by... I've taken many roads to get here. But I don't know why you're always in my rear view mirror now...

//Pre Chorus// Pushing the pedal down, my world is spinning out trying to escape from you.

//Chorus// But these warning signs keep calling out to me. And I've tried so hard to move on past your street. But these warning signs are not leaving, making me blue... cuz of these warning signs... I keep on turning back to you.

//Chorus//

//Chorus//

Feel Like a Kid

//Verse// I feel like a kid today. Like my body doesn't have weight. Scared of looks that I'm gettin' on the subway, a gust of wind nearly blows me away... I feel like a kid today.

 

Just wanna stay in and cry. Play video games 'till I die. Shadows shaking as I move down the sidewalk, thinkin' probably I'll get mugged on the next block, yeah, I feel like a kid today...

//Chorus// But then I see your face and I think about how I just ran away. I was just a kid when I met you and I fell in the first place. These city lights haven't found a way to forgive my mistakes. I was just a kid when I met you and I fell in the first place... and I feel like a kid today.

Woah-oh-oh-oh (and I feel like a kid today)

//Verse// A survival guide might be nice. A time machine back to 1995. Tell myself to be careful with your love, and there's nothing I should be afraid of.

//Chorus//

//Bridge// Don't stop me waiting around just killing time, finding out just who I wanna be. Erase the thought of you from my old mind, growing up is slowly killing me...

//Chorus// - but starts out all cool and soft and builds up.
Kinda fun. 

//Cute Outro with piano//

See the World

Written & performed by Emery Major, Caraa, Benny Levs

//Verse// Let's go far away to an island's misty shore, 'neath a purple moon we can fall in love some more. Take my heart away, wash it in the way you move, bringing you near me close gonna see the world with you.

//Chorus// Ooh-oo-oh say to me that you're thinking the same thing too. On the beach breaking our taboos, taste the ocean air as I breathe in you-ooh- say to me that you're thinkin' the same thing too. Salty skin, sharing our tattoos, bags are packed seeing the world with you-ooh-ooh

See the world with you...

//Verse// These apartment walls creep closer every day. Wanna take you there but I can't afford a plane... so turn the light out, I see it in the way you smile, let's escape our little world for a while. 

//Chorus// Ooh-oo-oh say to me that you're thinking the same thing too. Between the sheets breaking out taboos, taste the city air as I breathe in you. Ooh-oo-ooh say to me that you're feeling the same way too. Across the streets and the avenues, staying in tonight seeing the world with you. 

//Bridge// Let's get away, let's get away, let's get away (ooh say to me)...

Get awayyyyyyyyyy (and so forth)

//Outro// Ooh-oo-ooh say to me that you're thinking the same thing too... Ooh-oo-ooh say to me that you're feeling the same way too...

      See the world with you.
