Little Kicks

They said that I should write a song for you
They said you'd hear it inside

You know I waited oh so long for you
And when we meet I think I'll cry

Little Kicks
I don't think I'm ready for this

I just want to write perfect lullabies
Sing as you drift away at night

I fell so hard when you opened your eyes
I'll hold you just for ever now

And those little kicks they're keeping me in time
And those little kicks they're keeping me in line
And I've been waiting to feel those little kicks for such a long time

It Never Rains When You Need It

I lay on the ground, and stare into the sky
Feels so different, when every day is the same
See I, I got all the time in the world
But I got no world for my time

It never rains when you need it
I've been feeling so dry
Like that old, favourite shirt that's been hanging for weeks on the line
It never rains when you need it
Don't count the tears you cry
It never rains... so just live your life

I sit on my front step and stare into the sun
Have I stopped counting the days, or just forgotten how it's done?

See I, I got all the time in the world
But I got no world for my time

It never rains when you need it
I've been feeling so dry
Like that old, favourite shirt that's been hanging for weeks on the line
It never rains when you need it
Don't count the tears you cry
It never rains... so just live your life

What We Built For You

Embarking on a construction
I hope you understand
The box came with no instructions 
So I’m drawing up my own plan
Too many pieces, 
Or too few, or the wrong size
I guess none of this matters 
Can’t wait until you arrive

It's not a shimmering castle
It's not a house made of gold
It's just a bunch of blank pages
With your name written into the fold
And I know that there will be times
That change the things I thought that I knew
I just hope that you like
What we built for you

I could name a constellation
But that would understate my inclination
I see bedtime stories
And running down hallways
And conversations I won’t understand
It’s sentimental but I’m gonna level
I’ve fallen hard and you’re yet to land

My friend said we don’t get a manual
And by now I know that’s so true
I just hope you really like
What we built for you

Pieces of Different Puzzles

Gathering dust around the house 
Like furniture forgotten when somebody moved out 
I’m not where I want to be 
A round trip to Jupiter seems closer to me 

Then one day 
I got myself together, said “OK” 
From this day, no matter what the weather 
I’m only looking up from now on 

Started picking up the pieces 
Of all the different puzzles 
That got mixed up in their boxes 
Lost in all our struggles 
Picking up the pieces 
Put ‘em all back together again 

Take in the salty ocean breeze 
Feel I should be grateful in the sand on my knees 
But instead I am lost 
Doing circle like an alien drawing patterns in the crops 

Then one day 
I got myself together, said “OK” 
From this day, no matter what the weather 
I’m only looking up from now on 

Started picking up the pieces 
Of all the different puzzles 
That got mixed up in their boxes 
Lost in all our struggles 
Picking up the pieces 
Put ‘em all back together again 

It’s been a long life
But the weather’s getting better
It’ll be alright
Now we’ve put ourselves back together

Full Moon Blanket

Come now
We got some time
To go outside
Under a full moon blanket

Your eyes
They shine like stars in the night
Under a full moon blanket

The way you hold my hand
I think you understand

We must look after this place
Make sure something remains
For others
Under a full moon blanket

Your eyes
They are the stars in my night
I see your smile
Hold me close now under the sky

Did you see the conjunction tonight
Beautiful
Under a full moon blanket

Close your eyes
Sleep tonight
Peaceful
Under a full moon blanket
