Track Name: Summer Stars
Under summer stars I never knew
I'm with you, I'm with you
Under summer stars I never knew
I'm with you, I'm with you

Firelight keeps flickerin'
This summer night keeps sinkin' in
With the moonlit fog creepin' in
And all the while all I'm thinkin' is
Adapting to reacting to the positives attracting
When you ponder trust in wanderlust
Life ain;t such a bad thing
Ticket on the midnight boat
Is more than any man can pay
Patch the hole in the work yard fence
But it never goes away
Keep your face to the sunshine
And the shadows fall behind
We're reachin' up for the summer stars
And lost in what we find

Under summer stars I never knew
I'm with you, I'm with you
Under summer stars I never knew
I'm with you, I'm with you
No matter where we go, that's just where we are
Up above the clouds, but underneath the stars
Midnight sky take me by surprise ooo

Oo I've been dreaming of far away
Like I'm destined to sail away
But I'm lost and tossed in the break of a wake
So wake and take me away from this scene
And make me say what I mean
I dream but I don't sleep
Footprints on the road less traveled
Wild night burns with electric light
Coast in clear of jokers and jackals
Wild wind on the spokes of our bikes
Unbridled shouts, narrators of our dreams
With sky above we fell in love enough to set us free

Under summer stars I never knew
I'm with you, I'm with you
Under summer stars I never knew
I'm with you, I'm with you
No matter where we go, that's just where we are
Up above the clouds, but underneath the stars
Midnight sky take me by surprise ooo

And the break, and the break down is
The beginning of something new
And the break, and the break down is

And the break, and the break down is
The beginning of something new
And the break, and the break down is

Under the summer stars I never knew
I'm with you, I'm with you
Under summer stars I never knew
I'm with you, I'm with you
Under summer stars I never knew
I'm with you, I'm with you
Under summer stars I never knew
I'm with you, I'm with you
Track Name: Off the Map
We’re all dreaming of a distant shoreline
I’m just waiting for the tide to take me home
Clear water and a little bit of sunshine
Off the map so we can be alone

I wanna live in an endless summer
No more working, it's a pointless bummer
Just drift away, not caring what the people say
I wanna climb in a coconut tree
I want to swim in the seven seas
And just drift away, not caring 'bout another day
And we'll come down, Down the lazy river floating
We won't stop until we're finally free

Talkin 'bout wastin' time's not wastin' time
Sittin' on the shoreline, forget about the bottom line
We can make it one of a kind
I've been chasin' time, but it's already mine
Skip the 9 to 5, I'm leaving it behind
It's only Monday in your mind

High on life and we're low on troubles
Slow it down, make it on the double
Just drift away, not caring what the people say
We got a lotta nada and we just don't care
We're gonna, cash it in just like a millionaire
If you got work to do, Man I guess it's just not fair
We'll calm down. Breaking out from all the silly routines
And we won't stop until we hit the sea

Talkin 'bout wastin' time's not wastin' time
Sittin' on the shoreline, forget about the bottom line
We can make it one of a kind
I've been chasin' time, but it's already mine
Skip the 9 to 5, I'm leaving it behind
It's only Monday in your mind

We’re all dreaming of a distant shoreline
I’m just waiting for the tide to take me home
Clear water and a little bit of sunshine
Off the map so we can be alone

Talkin 'bout wastin' time's not wastin' time
Sittin' on the shoreline, forget about the bottom line
We can make it one of a kind
I've been chasin' time, but it's already mine
Skip the 9 to 5, I'm leaving it behind
It's only Monday in your mind
It's only Monday in your mind
Livin' in an endless summer
Off the map so we can be alone
Track Name: Taqueria
I’ve been trying to forget this
Light a fire. Burn the message.
Send it up into the Milky Way
Traffic light on that commotion
Threw my cell phone in the ocean
Leave a message at the Hideaway

And I’m taking it low, don’t go crazy
And I’m taking it low, my girl my baby

I wanna know if you wanna roll
And if music can save your soul
And maybe later we can hit the taqueria
You gotta know whats been on my mind
Not talking just to pass the time
Maybe later we can hit the taqueria

If you wanna have a good time
Have a good time 'cause time is tickin'
And if you wanna live your life
Live your life. Don't stop livin'

If you want to disappear
If you want to get back to livin'
You got to face your fears
Find what you've been missin', So I
I wanna go down to mexico
Where the wild west still has some soul
Something California used to know
I watched it leave with the rush of gold

And I’m taking it low, don’t go crazy
And I’m taking it low, my girl my baby

I wanna know if you wanna roll
And if music can save your soul
And maybe later we can hit the taqueria
You gotta know whats been on my mind
Not talking just to pass the time
Maybe later we can hit the taqueria

If you wanna have a good time
Have a good time 'cause time is tickin'
And if you wanna live your life
Live your life. Don't stop livin'

Stress and the static causing a panic
I guess we finally had it so bad so we’re at it again
Begin, clueing me in on everything that’s bothering
I’m breathing it in
Take a deep breath, Get it off your chest
I’ll try my best just to sort out this mess
The lessons we learn, Taking our turns
Spilling our souls till we fill up with words

If you wanna have a good time
Have a good time 'cause time is tickin'
And if you wanna live your life
Live your life. Don't stop!

I wanna know if you wanna roll
And if music can save your soul
And maybe later we can hit the taqueria
I give it all but I want it back
How we gunna make the good times last
Maybe later we can hit the taqueria
Track Name: Tanlines
How about you and me by the seaside
Sometime in summertime or whenever you're free
Use the free time to freestyle some lyrics
And drop the melody
I’ll bring the good vibes and the phat rhymes
And my ukulele baby
You bring the good times and the tan lines
And the rest is just you and me

I wanna sing it like we mean it
Let’s get carried away
Let’s get lost in the moment
All we got is today

So hit me baby, with a little bit o' good times
And those itty bitty tan lines
Sipping on a cool vibe
Maybe we can say hello with no goodbye
Gimme some of that sunshine
And make my summertime

Now I’m wondering what you’re thinkin
I got this feelin’ that I can’t leave alone
Guess what I’m saying, is that hanging
Has got me wanting a little bit more
I can’t deny it if I try it I get higher when I’m next to you
Some things just come easy It seems
We could be the same way too

I wanna sing it like we mean it
Let’s get carried away
Let’s get lost in the moment
All we got is today

So hit me baby, with a little bit o' good times
And those itty bitty tan lines
Sipping on a cool vibe
Maybe we can say hello with no goodbye
Gimme some of that sunshine
And make my summertime

You make it brighter, like I’m staring at the sun
Wearing that bikini two-piece
You’re the only one
You take me higher, like I’m floating on the breeze
And it makes the livin easy
Must be a California dream

So hit me baby, with a little bit o' good times
And those itty bitty tan lines
Sipping on a cool vibe
Maybe we can say hello with no goodbye
Gimme some of that sunshine
Out on the coastline
Hit me baby, with a little bit o' good times
And those itty bitty tan lines
Sipping on a cool vibe
Maybe we can say hello with no goodbye
Gimme some of that sunshine
And make my summertime
Track Name: Safe Side
Livin' on wasted time
Livin on, livin' on and on and on wasted time

Safety is just an illusion of the mind
A delusion of a kind
Like the fusion of a rhyme
With the rhythm keepin' time
I wanna fly but they said it can't be done
But they said the same thing about everything else
And look at how far we've come
We can't be stopped. I'm takin' it to the top
Oo whatever comes my way, it's ok, it's enough, naw
Don't fear your dreams 'cause it seems to be impossible
With every hour be empowered, undeniable

Is that the best that you can do?
Givin' up on livin' dreams
Procrastinate on the memories
You don't got much time to lose
Hesitate and it's too late
The more you wait, the more you're wastin'

Do you really believe you are on the safe side?
Livin' on, livin' on wasted time
Do you really believe you are on the safe side?
Livin' on, livin' on wasted time

We can make the most of takin' it coast to coast
A healthy dose of the good times and the bad goes adios
I can't quite remember the quote someone wrote
Someone said it, I forget it, but you know the one I'm on mmm
My dreams burn like fire
Tried to put it out but the flames got higher
You're not just a drop in the ocean, you're the ocean in a drop
Don't block up my flow 'cause we just can't stop

Is that the best that you can do?
Givin' up on livin' dreams
Procrastinate on the memories
You don't got much time to lose
Hesitate and it's too late
The more you wait, the more you're wastin'

Do you really believe you are on the safe side?
Livin' on, livin' on wasted time
Do you really believe you are on the safe side?
Livin' on, livin' on wasted time

Is that the best that you can do?
Livin' on wasted time
You don't got much time to lose
Livin' on, livin' on, livin' on and on and on and on and on and

Do you really believe you are on the safe side?
Livin' on, livin' on wasted time
Do you really believe you are on the safe side?
Livin' on, livin' on wasted time
Do you really believe you are on the safe side?
Livin' on, livin' on wasted time
Do you really believe you are on the safe side?
Livin' on, livin' on wasted time
Track Name: Lovers' Ledge
Baby you're a catch
Maybe there's no catch
And if you catch my drift
We must be floatin' off the edge
Fallin' for your lovin'
Gravity's got nothin'
On the way that you're pullin' me in

Oh she got me reelin'
Hooked up on the feelin'
Please don't leave me out on the line
Never keeps me guessin'
Even when our love is tested
So I guess that's where her beauty lies

You and me, leanin' in
Something 'bout to begin
Close your eyes and I won't miss
The touch of your lips, kissin' on Lovers' Ledge

The sun is quite a view
See the fire in that motion
I'm fallin' for you
While it slips into the ocean
Nothin' left to say
All we got is doin'
So let's stay just a little while

Gotta lotta reasons
To know just what you're thinkin'
Still you got me wonderin' why
When we finally dive in
There's no more disguisin'
What's clear as the open sky

You and me, leanin' in
Something 'bout to begin
Close your eyes and I won't miss
The touch of your lips, kissin' on Lovers' Ledge

Look at what love brings
Pluckin' on my heart strings
Singin' out another tune
When we're makin' love songs
We can never do wrong
And never just a minute too soon

You and me, leanin' in
Something 'bout to begin
Close your eyes and I won't miss
The touch of your lips, kissin' on Lovers' Ledge

Yeah, we're kissin' on Lovers' Ledge
Track Name: Calm Yourself
Oo you got to calm yourself
Feel alright, make the most
Don't be so uptight

Another day is done for you
And the same is true for me
Found a way to make it through
Still there's one thing left to do, be easy
And in the end what will be will be

Oo you got to calm yourself
Feel alright, make the most
Don't be so uptight
Just loosin' up
Don't let them brig you down down down
Hold your head up
The time is now now now

We are free as we want to be
We'll never be as free as we are right now
When push come to shove, they're shovin'
And you've had enough, stay above it
Pick yourself up, brush it off and say

You got to calm yourself
Feel alright, make the most
Don't be so uptight
Just loosin' up
Don't let them brig you down down down
Hold your head up
The time is now now now

You got to work it, work it, work it
To make it worth it, worth it, worth it
It seems that positive vibrations are the things that make for a good good time
So spend it with me

And just calm yourself
Feel alright, leave your worries on the ground
Let your dreams take flight
Just loosin' up
Don't let them brig you down down down
Hold your head up
The time is now now now

Just calm yourself and you'll feel alright
Track Name: California Kids
Midnight pier jump, Meet me at the taco truck
Lengua just to give it a try
Front yard beer pong,
Inflatable pool foam party on the 4th of July
Everyday in board shorts,
Leave your sandals at the door
Bonfire jam all night
405 cruisin' PCH, while we all sing along to Sublime

We were barefoot babes in neon shades
Surfin' Cali-for-ni-a
Everyone stops to watch the sun drop,
Malibu to San Diego Bay
California dreamin', burrito eatin'
Beach baby, give me a kiss
Put me on the cover of Surfer Magazine
Cause I'm a Southern California kid

Paddlin' out with a good vibration
Droppin' in with the south swell breakin'
Sharin' that stoke on a Saturday night
A little sun-burnt but we're all alright!

In-N-Out drive thru, Out past curfew
Double double, animals fries
Did you feel the earthquake?
Cali green, Golden State
Votin' to decriminalize
Blue jeans got a big dream
LAX bound flight
Now she's waitin' tables just so she is able
To keep on the Hollywood lights

We were barefoot babes in neon shades
Surfin' Cali-for-ni-a
Everyone stops to watch the sun drop,
Malibu to San Diego Bay
California dreamin', burrito eatin'
Beach baby, give me a kiss
Put me on the cover of Surfer Magazine
Cause I'm a Southern California kid

Paddlin' out with a good vibration
Droppin' in with the south swell breakin'
Sharin' that stoke on a Saturday night
A little sun-burnt but we're all alright!
Track Name: Rising Tide
It's a rising tide out on the street tonight
Rising over you
It's a rising tide, just when the moon is right
They'll be coming after you

Born with a bright future, nothing gets in my way
Steppin' into the light of a bright sunny day
Let us feel the warmth, make me feel reborn
Takin' away the pains of the things that we do
Breakin' away the chains, now they're lookin' for you
We've got nothing but we've something to say
Free us from our own robbed grave

It's a rising, rising tide
It's a rising, rising tide
Just like the rising tide is coming after you
You will be righted for all the wrongs you do
Ooooh Oooh Ooh
All the people say
Ooooh Oooh Ooh

Singin' another song to keep the reggae beach rockin'
Swimmin' in the sound, now there's no time for talkin'
Tick tick tockin' of the clock it's never stoppin'
Tickin' like a bomb, bomb's away, we be droppin'
Downtown, down that road, down on your luck
There's a story to be told
And it's written in the sand
In the music of the shoreline band
Crazy fool, yeah you keep cool, just
Scratchin' on your head, it's like you never knew this
Burnin' down the villages but never seem to notice
Callin' up all the people only askin' for forgiveness
What are we gunna do right now
Somebody has got to show them how
To stand their ground and do not run
The battles only just begun
Like the rising of the setting sun
This time you know there's only one, one

And it's a rising, rising tide
It's a rising, rising tide
Just like the rising tide is coming after you
You will be righted for all the wrongs you do
Ooooh Oooh Ooh
All the people say
Ooooh Oooh Ooh

Oh 'til the ends of the earth
We will sing it, we will bring it
No matter if we sink or swim
We will carry on, carry on

It's a rising, rising tide
It's a rising, rising tide
Just like the rising tide is coming after you
You will be righted for all the wrongs you do
Ooooh Oooh Ooh
All the people say
Ooooh Oooh Ooh

It's a rising tide out on the street tonight
Rising over you
It's a rising tide, just when the moon is right
They'll be coming after you
Track Name: Rock Me Like the Ocean
The livin' ain't easy, Oh believe me
I ain't sayin' that the livin' is hard
Oh you know the lovin' and the livin' is free
And I just got to say

Rock me like the ocean
Just like the ocean
Slow and sweet
Rock me like the ocean
You got the rhythm of the lovin' I need

She got the kinda moves that stirs up all of that local commotion
Cools me down to her mellow mood
And then she fires me up like a steamy locomotion
Look at how hard we're livin'
All we really got is the time we're givin'
In time all will be forgiven ooo

Rock me like the ocean
Just like the ocean
Slow and sweet
Rock me like the ocean
You got the rhythm of the lovin' I need
Feels alright
Oooo oooo ooo don't stop

Without warning you were right here next to me
And your lovin' such a sweet thing that's the way it always otta be

Rock me like the ocean
Just like the ocean
Slow and sweet
Rock me like the ocean
You got the rhythm of the lovin' I need
Feels alright
Oooo oooo ooo don't stop
Oooo oooo ooo

If your love is comin' in first then you don't need no paper
Livin' it all for givin' then you know we'll see you later
What goes around is comin' around and comin' right back again
All the love we give you know will come back in the end
Look at how hard we're livin'
All we really got is the time we're givin'
In time all will be forgiven ooo

Rock me like the ocean
Just like the ocean
Slow and sweet
Rock me like the ocean
You got the rhythm of the lovin' I need

Slow and sweet

Feels alright
Track Name: Surfer Girl
I got dropped in on by a surfer girl
Right as I was shootin' through the curl
The barrel started to dump
I pumped but I had to jump
Leash of a surfer girl tangled up with me

I fell in love with that surfer babe
I finally caught that perfect wave
Tan skin and stoke for days
Don't need Hawaii to get lei'd
She's refreshin' as summertime lemonade

Oo got that mid-tide, outside, south swell breakin'
With my ride or die girl and I good vibe makin'
She's cute but don't you be mistaken
For some sunbathin' beach babe out there fakin'

I fell in love with that surfer girl

Tan skin and stoke for days
Don't need Hawaii to get lei'd
Pass me some of that summertime lemonade

Oo her nose ride is neat but her bottom turn's better
Jack Johnson on repeat 'cause we're "Better Together"
Lay out, turn over, and show a little crack
Then pass the sunscreen 'cause you know I got your back
My surfer girl
Track Name: Things We Grow
Oh the things we grow
Why? why?
Oh I guess the things we grow
We'll sow tomorrow now
So before the day grows cold
Let's burn another down

I want to stay here forever baby you and me
Light as a feather like lovers in the cool breeze
Where we go we don't know
But we'll follow our hearts to the stars
Where the crescent moon is grinning down
Love is the reason for the air that you're breathing
So don't hold it in from the people you're meeting
A smile is a style that don't go out of season
Keep that in mind each time you're feeling down

Oh I guess the things we grow
We'll sow tomorrow now
So before the day grows cold
Let's burn another down
You got that something that soothes my soul
So much more than you'll ever know
We got each others hearts to hold
Forever young, fornever old

Let's take a sec to look back and reflect
A minute before there's no time for the time that we're giving
This could be it, how much more do we get?
Who put a stop payment on my reality check? "Cause
What's the point of it anyway
If I ain't makin' the most when I'm doing my thing? Ehh
Less human, more being
The beauty is freeing
Love for all things and that is why we sing

Oh I guess the things we grow
We'll sow tomorrow now
So before the day grows cold
Let's burn another down
You got that something that soothes my soul
So much more than you'll ever know
We got each others hearts to hold
Forever young, fornever old

Are you down with livin' up to all the things you're dreamin' of?
So much more that you could say, you could say mmm
Are you down with dreamin' up more ways we can live it up?
So much more that we could say, we could say mmm

Oh I guess the things we grow
We'll sow tomorrow now
With every beat of our beating heats we'll be together mmm
I just wanna love you so
And never let you go
You'll always be my beating heart, my beating heart yeahhh

You got that something that soothes my soul
So much more than you'll ever know
We got each others hearts to hold
Forever young, fornever old

Comma, comma, soothe my soul
Comma, comma, soothe my soul
I guess now we know

Forever young, fornever old
