Track Name: Numbers on My Heart
We only met so recently
But it’s going more than decently
Our conversations
Flowing from the start

We both may be developers
But I am not so sure
I might change professions
To professing something more, ‘cause

Hey, Kristen
Are you not a mathematician?
I swear you’re working numbers on my heart

We’ve only talked online
And approximations do just fine
Words, building anticipation
Computation of flirtations

Hey, Kristen
Are you not a mathematician?
I swear you’re working numbers on my heart
Except for long division
'Cause I have no affliction
With addition and subtraction
But I’m bad at giving fractions, I

Give my everything and live for the minuscule
The most important things I never learned in school

Hey, Kristen
Are you not a mathematician?
I swear you’re working numbers on my heart
Except for long division
'Cause I have no affliction
With addition and subtraction
But I’m bad at giving fractions, when

I feel an attraction
So take the sum of my parts
Calculate the outcome
I hope that we can outrun
That the figures of what's possible are off the charts
Hey, Kristen
Are you not a mathematician?
I swear you're working numbers on my heart
On my heart

Hey, Kristen
I swear you're working numbers on my heart
Track Name: The Light of My Life
You’re in my present
And a part of my past too
I hope we’ll be together always
No matter what we do

I love the way you look at me
How you rest your face with a smile
You love my favorite restaurant
And spending time there for a while

So, I have one final request at the end of the night
After all these kind, deep talks and listening
Kiss me, Kristen, one more time before you go
I hold you tight, you are the light of my life

The light of my life

I could write a million lyrics
About me and you
Publish one hundred albums
And it would never compare to

The finest meals and the concerts
And the fun afternoons
Nor the feelings that we have
Being over the moon

So, I have one final request at the end of the night
After all these kind, deep talks and listening
Kiss me, Kristen, one more time before you go
I hold you tight, you are the light, oh

How I pained and ached and hurt without you so
‘Til that day I was able to let go

So, I have one final request at the end of the night
After all these kind, deep talks and listening
Kiss me, Kristen, one more time before you go
I hold you tight, you are the light of my life

So, I have one final request at the end of the night
After all these kind, deep talks and listening
Kiss me, Kristen, one more time before you go
I hold you tight, you are the light of my life
The light of my life
You are the light of my life
Track Name: My Own Princess Charming
You’re my lucky four-leaf clover
You’re my golden goose girl
You’re my Atlas shoulder
Under my unsteady world

Still, standing here because of you
The only life I ever want to go through

Though it's happening fast, and it's all so alarming
Nothing can retract this loving pursuit
You’ve become my own princess charming
I'm so fortunate to be with you

You’re my rainbow pot of gold
You’re my female cardinal
You’re my all-knowing oracle
For my future’s been told

Still, standing here because of you
The only life I ever want to go through

Though it's happening fast, and it's all so alarming
Nothing can retract this loving pursuit
You’ve become my own princess charming
I'm so fortunate to be with you

No matter how big the dragon, you get through to me
A hero always takes the risk to be forever after happily

Though it's happening fast, and it's all so alarming
Nothing can retract this loving pursuit
You’ve become my own princess charming
I'm so fortunate, so fortunate

Though it's happening fast, and it's all so alarming
Nothing can retract this loving pursuit
You’ve become my own princess charming
I'm so fortunate to be with you
I'm so fortunate to be with you, yeah
I'm so fortunate to be with you
Track Name: Every Second of Us
How do I divide my passion
So that I can strike a balance?
My love for you isn’t difficult

How do I allocate my memories
To fulfill fifty anniversaries?
I want to cherish time with you

Every second of us, it turns to dust
The hourglass it slips through
The bottleneck never knows what’s next
But shows those moments of truth

How do I give all my attention
In order to squeeze each passing grain?
What if I ever have to choose?

Every second of us, it turns to dust
The hourglass it slips through
The bottleneck never knows what’s next
But shows those moments of truth
When all there is is you and me
Sacrificing priorities, does
There exist a space where we both fit
Our common interests?

If one by one is one
Haven’t we already won?

Every second of us merges into trust
We become together and fall through
The bottleneck knows we’re happiest
When these two hearts share the room
We overlap, just you and me
Bonds that share priorities
‘Cause we find a space where we both are
Grateful for our battle scars

Grateful’s where the loving starts
Every second of us
Track Name: My Love Is Out of Tune
She’s a streak in the sky
On a midsummer night
She’s a jet plane
Doing tricks in the air

She’s a beautiful formation
And she’s better than me
At so many things
It’s true

She’s a wondrous occasion
For the whole wide world
She’s a celebration
Of youth

And she’s my muse

Though I don’t say the right things
I stumble on words and trip up and hurt
Sometimes, I make her feel worse
Because of my mood

She’s a gorgeous crater
The biggest impact on me
So, why do I have to be
The biggest fool?

She’s a cheerleader
Who brightens the room
Determined to save me
From the gloom

She’s my dream woman
And my perfect wife
My imagination
Sees our life

But I can be rude

And I don’t say the right things
I stumble on words and trip up and hurt
Sometimes, I make her feel worse
Because of my mood
I’m writing my songs on six strings
And a honky tonk
Looking for the notes I want to use
But my love is out of tune

No pitch bend can make amends
But my solo will have to do

I don’t say the right things
I stumble on words and trip up and hurt
Sometimes I make her feel worse
Because of my mood

I’m writing my songs on six strings
And a honky tonk
Looking for the notes I want to use

I don’t say the right things
I stumble on words and trip up and hurt
Sometimes I make her feel worse
Because of my mood
I’m writing my songs on six strings
And a honky tonk
Looking for the notes I want to use
But my love is out of tune
Track Name: City Boy Affection
Driving to the skyline
City lights at almost midnight
With branches over the street
You and me, in between

Parking decks and selfie sticks
Destination picturesque
Profiles never looked so good
A creepy man crossed paths with us

On the way home, deep darkness opened up
Just like the sky above, but I didn’t see the stars of love

In your eyes, those brown circles around the blue
Make me curious about the tiger inside you

Pulling in the driveway
Looking back on the arcade
Trying to reclaim the memories
Before fell the night shade

In the house, sudden gloom was won
We turned on each other, and there was a light flood

In your eyes, those brown circles around the blue
Make me curious about the tiger inside you
In your eyes, small town wonder opening to
This city boy affection affected by a past truth

Every moment becomes a piece of glue
We lay the cement of the concrete we fall onto

In your eyes, those brown circles around the blue
Make me curious about the tiger inside you
In your eyes, small town wonder opening to
This city boy affection affected by a past truth

I must be oblivious from your point of view
Inexperience and lack of common sense confuse
And when your heart rate lowers on the graph
We lie down together and do the bedroom math
We lie down together and do the bedroom math
We lie down together and add up our happiness
Track Name: Underside of the Clouds
Sixty-five into the sun
Streaks of white and engine hum
Cell photographs
Clicking over the wheel

Dusky voices talking
Orange blankets the sky
Wondrous tones of pink
I can hear it in your eyes

Water vapor floats midair
Layers of a lovely lair
Captured passion hues so loud
Underside of the clouds

Still shots from the porch
Stripes of glare on my storm door
Thousands coming through the line
Speechless sights

Muffled choices tripping
Approximations to describe
Spreading, wandering to life
I can hear it in your eyes

Water vapor floats midair
Layers of a lovely lair
Captured passion hues so loud
Underside of the clouds

Calling me, we reconnect
On your way to this shipwreck
Suspended accidents of color
Marvelous revives the duller

Water vapor floats midair
Layers of a lovely lair
Captured passion hues so loud
Underside of the

Water vapor floats midair
Layers of a lovely lair
Captured passion hues so loud
Underside of the clouds
Underside
Underside of the clouds
Track Name: My Mann is a Woman
Making waffles for us in the morning
While I’m fixing all the bacon sometimes
At times I get burned while the paper towel is wet
Steaming as I pull it as the microwave vents
And my Mann is a woman

Drinking Aquafina while I'm having grapefruit juice
She's making a mess, spilling flour on the floor
I go to hug her, and she traps me for a kiss
I can't pull away, I love her smiles as is

Hearing the crunching in her cheeks
She’s laughing as I read, my lyrics seem silly
And her name isn't Billy
But my Mann is a woman

I can't wait to be her Koman
Her husband while she's my wife
Right now she's a Mann
Right now she's a Mann
But one day to be my Koman Mann

My Mann is a woman
My Mann is a woman
My Mann is a woman
She's my Koman Mann

My Mann is a woman
My Mann is a woman
My Mann is a woman
She's my Koman Mann
My Koman Mann
My Koman Mann
My Koman
And my Mann is a woman
Track Name: Popsicles
My lady's got some legs
My lady's got some popsicle legs
My lady's got some legs
And they're cold!
Like some popsicles

My lady’s got some hair
My lady’s got some blonde, blonde hair
My lady’s got some hair
My lady’s got some cold hair
And I don't care!
Because she cares

Her fingers linger on my lips
I caress her hips as we kiss
Sip sweet honey in my tummy
Play gin rummy 'round the bar
Cards

Place a bet with my money
That my honey's coming I alone, home

Melt them popsicle sticks like chocolate in my mouth
Ow ow ow ow outh!

My lady's got some legs
My lady's got some popsicle legs
My lady's got some legs
And they're cold!
Like some popsicles
Track Name: Dust to Stardust
Circles around the knob
Long exposures at dusk
Blackbirds and monarchs
Sprinkle in the brush

Lowered Canon about my
Tired neck
Sometimes a camera
Can’t capture the raptor

No matter the aperture
It gives me a temperature

Jam on the island
Hotheaded as the stove
Unclogging pipes
My mountain woman goes

No matter my preference
I’ll make you a difference

You’re my future to-be
You are wearing my ring
Imagination cannot ever hide
Dreams are made of you and I, love

Dust to stardust
