Track Name: Saint Valentine
The cats in the garden and the mice are coming out to play
I've got money in my pocket but I'll save it for a rainy day
Outside the sun is shining but I feel like sleeping in
It's the second day I've worn this shirt, don't think anyone notices.

I put my heart in a suitcase and took it out on parade
I thought I had lost it, you found it at baggage claim
I said you could keep it but worried that it might break
You said you were strong, that you didn't mind the weight, you said

Would you be mine, be my valentine
Would you be mine, be my valentine

We went to the garden, the moonlight carried us 'til day
I've got stars in my eyes, we're wrapped up in the milky way
It's the second day I've worn your shirt and nothing ever fits this way
I've been contemplating leaving but darling I think I'll stay

Would you be mine, be my valentine
Would you be mine, be my valentine
Would you be mine, be my valentine
Would you be mine, be my valentine
Track Name: Pillow Talk
I hope you don't mind if I talk in my sleep
Because dear, it's the most honest I can be
In my dreams I can tell you just how much I care
Sit as close as I'd like to, run fingers through your hair

I see shadows of children, just what they could be
Playing behind my eyelids while I'm fast asleep
Catching fireflies in jars; putting flowers in their hair
I look into your eyes and I can almost see them there

But in the morning I wake, rub the sleep from my eyes
The ghost of our future still haunting my mind
In the morning I wake, rub the sleep from my eyes
The ghost of our future still haunting my mind

So lay down, let's have a pillow talk
Lay down, let's have a pillow talk
So lay down (lay down), darlin (darlin),
Tell me (tell me) what's the harm in
Lay down (lay down), darlin (darlin),
Tell me (tell me), what's the harm in

Dreamin' with me
Dreamin' with me
Dreamin' with me
Track Name: Fools Gold
The compass in my hand tells me where to go
The compass in my heart is broke, you know
They wanted me to be a cross of gold
But I am made of wood, splintered and old

I headed to the sea, I headed to the coast
They shivered and they shook and said it was Your ghost
My spirit turned to lead and my heart turned cold
They said You were displeased, that I was wrong to fold

Foolish I may be, my tent pitched on sand
But I can find no rock in this weary land
Jesus, stay my feet and hold my hand
I believe in You, but not in man

I look into Your eyes, they are liquid gold
Their fables turn to ash as Your truth unfolds
Who am I to judge the pharisee;
Condemning me for my adultery

Jesus stay my feet and hold my hand
Until I can see the promised land
Track Name: Come Away
Throw yesterday into the sea
Tomorrow is new and you have been set free
So lift up your hands, and lift up your voice
I know it's hard but it's time to rejoice

I know you feel weak and afraid
Disappointed with choices you've made
But I just see you, I don't see your stains
Although you have fallen, my love still remains

Come away with me, I am all you need
All your heart desires, step into my fire
Come away with me, I am all you need
All your soul desires, let your heart catch fire
And come away

I see every tear fall from your eyes
I am right there holding you as you cry
My heart it breaks as yours slowly mends
I gave all I had to see you whole again

The mountains are calling your name
I'm calling you too, darling, I am not tame
Adventure is waiting, take hold of my hand
It's time to move on, come away, take a stand

God, I will run to you, give my heart to you
It's true I was afraid that you would hide Your face
You alone satisfy; my dead heart beats with life
Your love has set me free; my love You have rescued me
And I will come, I will come, I will come
Track Name: California
In the air there is a sweetness,
You can taste it on your tongue
All the faces filled with freckles;
Touched by kisses from the sun

California, oh my darlin'
Cherish you until I die
California, oh my sweetheart
You're the apple of my eye

I will water all your poppies
When the tears fall from my eyes
Wish I could fit you in my pocket
Keep you always by my side

California, oh my darlin'
Cherish you until I die
California, oh my sweetheart
You're the apple of my eye

San Francisco, Santa Barbara,
San Diego, San Ramone
City of Angels, fields of gold
Mariposa, redwood forests;
San Luis Obispo, you'll always be my home

California, oh my darlin'
Cherish you until I die
California, oh my sweetheart
You're the apple of my eye

In the old times it was spoke of
Treasure you would not believe
But the riches we uncovered
Was the truth that set us free

California, oh my darlin'
Cherish you until I die
California, oh my sweetheart
You're the apple of my eye
