Track Name: Embrace
Love I won't wake you
We'll call it a day
But if you get nervous dear
Don't hesitate

For I've been there
I know the way
Gets clearer
Each day that we
Track Name: Into a Spell
Felt you sun in the air
Held by what I believed was
All the memories
And the meanings we made

Clear blue skies with a breeze
Green surrounds the highway
In the Valley
Where we both had fell

Into a spell
That reminds us too

Keep one eye closed

Waves of violet crashing
Golden sand surrounds us
Where we started
And continue to breathe

Thoughts Suspended in time
Feeling our Vibrations
In the Valley
Where we both had fell

Into a spell
That reminds us too

Keep one eye closed
Track Name: Stuck
Love of mine I'm learning
How to write a song
And then press it through
Your words

You had come to me
As a thought last night
And now I see the world
So clear

If you ever feel stuck
Call my phone and we'll
Figure it out
Track Name: En La Vida
Si nos dejamos en la vida
Pues nos ahogamos

Y si nos ahogamos en la vida
Pues nos dejamos de vivir

En la vida
Si estamos

En el medio

Y si te entiendo en la vida
Pues nos amamos
Y si nos amamos en la vida
Pues te entiendo entre unos

En la vida
Si estamos

En el medio

De tus palabras
Que tu me cuentes

De los dos
Track Name: Hope of the Valley
Above all we are just pulses
And they're all floating still
I use love as a direction
To get me by

But put your meanings to somethings
And keep one eye closed
Make life what you need it
And you'll feel fine

My muse is the hope of the valley
Aligning my gemini
Reminding to follow my instinct
And you'll feel fine
Track Name: Time
It wasn't a joke
And now you're brought back inside
And now we're stuck in between

According to us
We brought the curtain between
And all we think is our high

And all you've conveyed
I think we brought it inside

To joke
In all that we've made
I hope to say it again

It held
Onto your name
the unnamed girl
Inside both of our minds
