Tree Song:

I'm getting my focus

I'm starting to notice

When it's not around

Don't look at my weakness

I'm counting the minutes

I have to sort it out

 

I fear I owe you something, love

 

But I don't know what to say

Just don't go expecting the right thing

 

It's a big, big world you know

And I still don't know where to call home

I could use someone

I could use someone like you

If you ever start to fall

I would catch you during the spiral

I could use someone

I could use someone like you

I could use someone like you

I hate when I worry

'Cause that takes a bad thing

And puts it all on you

You're just like a fairy

You float above everything

But I can't help but feel younger in your hue

 

It's a big, big world you know

And I still don't know where to call home

I could use someone

I could use someone like you

If you ever start to fall

I would catch you during the spiral

I could use someone

I could use someone like you

I could use someone like you

I could use someone like you

Use someone like you

I could use someone like you

 

Mary:

I've been spending all my time with you

I've been lending half my mind to you

I've been tryna ease up, play it cool yeah

But it's no use

I've been watching days fly by with you

I've been tryna catch a breath or two

'Cause things I love just pass me by too soon

Too soon

 

It wasn't supposed to be like this

I just wanna breathe you in

I just wanna feel your kiss

Every night, love

And every morning

Told myself that I could run from you

But every step I take, you're in pursuit

Telling me not to change all the things that we do

'Cause Mary you just don't love me like I love you

It wasn't supposed to be like this

I just wanna breathe you in

I just wanna feel your kiss

Every night, love

And every morning

It wasn't supposed to

 

It wasn't supposed to be like this

I just wanna breathe you in

I just wanna feel your kiss

Every night, love

And every morning

Hard To Get:

You say your love must wait but I ain't got that long

You cry to me every other night like another guy led you on

I'm not criticizing, baby

Oh, I want you to know

I'll sit back and watch you do your thing

But won't you realize that maybe

The love that you want

Could be so much closer than you think (yeah)

 

I'd learn all my lines, but you'd never buy a single one

So I just wait to reply

Like you haven't been on every one of my thoughts

I'm not hard to get, love

So come and get me up

I'm not hard to get, love

I see all your gears twisting 'round

As you're casting me out of the running

It's tough that showing some love

Means calling your bluff or surrendering

If I never met you, honey

Things would be easier

Or maybe I choose to love you, I don't know

But I'll never wait up

On you to wake up and suddenly

Want my hand to hold

Oh, I'd learn all my lines, but you'd never buy a single one

Oh yeah

So I just wait to reply

Like you haven't been on every one of my thoughts

I'm not hard to get, love

So come and get me up

I'm not hard to get, love

So come and get me up

I'm not hard to get, love

So come and get me up

I'm not hard to get, love

So come and get me up

So come and get me up

So come and get me up

So come and get me up
