Track Name: San Francisco Swim
VERSE
So we’re back where we began,
Our lives caught in a box again.
And though it’s been only days,
It feels like we’ve just wasted our lives away.

PRE-CHORUS
When it’s gone, I know, it’s not for long,
It’s hard to see where it went wrong.
You don’t know what you’ve got,
‘till you leave it all behind.

CHORUS
Let’s go far, far, far, far away,
Swim to San Francisco Bay,
Far, Far, Far away from all our sins,
It’s a San Francisco Swim.

VERSE
Girl, you’re so goddamn right,
When you say that I did promise you more last night,
But as it seems,
I’m still scared of living this concrete dream.

PRE-CHORUS
When it’s gone, I know, it’s not for long,
It’s hard to see where it went wrong.
This is all we’ve got,
We could leave the rest behind.

CHORUS
Let’s go far, far, far, far away,
Swim to San Francisco Bay,
Far, Far, Far away from all our sins,
It’s a San Francisco Swim.
Track Name: Vixen
VERSE
Can you tell me what your conscience said,
As you decided to cut the thread,
That tied you to all the numerous men,
Who thought they had a chance.

Oh Vixen, your diamond skin,
Confuse us, about the state we’re in.
One small kiss, the tenderest of goodbyes,
We’re going home alone tonight.

CHORUS
Tonight,
Cause you left us alone.

VERSE
Can you love me for one more night,
Let your lips seal this room shut tight,
And I’ll fall for the way you’ll break my heart,
Asking what I did expect…

A lot, you knew that right?
But fairground ride arms locked me tight.
And I’m just so sick of all these games and rules,
Is it me or him or are we both just lover’s fools?

CHORUS
Tonight,
Cause you left us alone.

BRIDGE
Can you hold me for one more hour.
Can you hold me for one more hour.
Just love, love, love, love.

CHORUS
Tonight,
Cause you left us alone.
