Track Name: Among Friends
Start out with a summer day.
Warm breeze, so easy to look the other way,
And I know my rhymes aren't anything close to a screenplay,
But no mainstay mislaid phrase is gonna change my fate.

So let's take a drive through town,
Listen to the sound of the whole world coming down.
Open up your ears and tell me what you wanna hear,
And I'll make it appear somehow.

We've got the top down, sun's out, everyone's feeling fine
All around in the summertime, and I've got nothing more to say.
So let's stop time, rewind, do it all over again, make tomorrow never end,
'Cause I am happy where I am,
Among friends.

All you want to be is a living alkaline battery,
Energy overflowing in the sunrise.
All you want to be is a living memory,
Never passing, everlasting, always staying here with me.

We've got the top down, sun's out, everyone's feeling fine
All around in the summertime, and I've got nothing more to say.
So let's stop time, rewind, do it all over again, make tomorrow never end,
'Cause I am happy where I am,
Among friends.

And you gotta know somehow, it's what you want it to be.
Well, I could show you how you could be there with me.
Oh baby, just cool down, and give me time now to make you see
How impossible these things are for me.


We've got the top down, sun's out, everyone's feeling fine
(All you want to be is a living alkaline battery)
All around in the summertime, and I've got nothing more to say.
(Energy overflowing in the sunrise)
So let's stop time, rewind, do it all over again, make tomorrow never end,
(All you want to be is a living memory)
'Cause I am happy where I am,
(Never passing, everlasting, please just stay)

Among friends.
Among friends.
Track Name: Vampires
You won't come out until the sundown,
And you're out of my line of sight.
And you stick to the shadows when the moon's around,
Afraid of flourescent light.
Though the summer sun lasts pretty late,
We won't have to renegotiate.
At least you're coming home.

Babe, you're like a vampire to me.
Get so close that I can feel your teeth.
Babe, you're like a vampire, you see,
And you know just how to make me bleed.

Standing in your entrance way,
I could feel you through the door.
And though my mind says turn that bitch away,
My veins still wanted more.
You thought I fell for your disguise,
But I could see your bloodthirsty eyes.
Yeah, I still let you in.

Babe, you're like a vampire to me.
Get so close that I can feel your teeth.
Babe, you're like a vampire, you see,
And you know just how to make me bleed.

We've spent enough time drawing the lines.
I thought you'd learned to behave.
But your broken smile can't help but bite
And now you're digging your own grave.

Babe, you're like a vampire to me.
Get so close that I can feel your teeth.
Babe, you're like a vampire, you see,
And you know just how to make me bleed.
Track Name: Back To Me
Well, you've got the flow and I've got the motion.
Let's get together and walk to the ocean.
Sandal heels click, and I don't have much to say.
'Cause I spend too much time in the 215,
I've been up, down, all around, and side to side,
But I've never met someone who smells like
A warm beach in the summertime,
And I'm running out of lines, and I'm running out of time.

It's just me.
This is where I want to be, what I want to know.
It's what I need. I'm saying, "Baby, come back to me.
Tell me I'm your world, and tell me you're my girl."
It's what I need. I'm saying, "Baby, come back to me."

Well, you've got a glow and I've got emotion.
Let's get together and start a commotion.
As sunshine days seem to flirt away,
We're driving top-down on the Interstate.
And everybody wants somebody they can hold on to,
A new tattoo of something of value,
And I won't let it slip, just set me adrift,
And I'll meet you again at the end of my shift.
'Cause I've got time and you've got the struggle,
I've got rhyme and you've got the rumble,
And I don't wanna stumble, but I won't let it bother me.
I'll just wait until you come around to see
How much damage you can do to me,
Apologize at three in the morning.

It's just me.
This is where I want to be, what I want to know.
It's what I need. I'm saying, "Baby, come back to me.
Tell me I'm your world, and tell me you're my girl."
It's what I need. I'm saying, "Baby, come back to me."

You said you had too much time on your hands,
So you dropped me off where the sidewalk ends.
Well, maybe it's just like that song,
And how you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone.
Well, babe, I might be wrong,
But I keep hoping that you'll say

"Baby, this is where I want to be, what I want to know.
It's what I need." I'm saying, "Baby, come back to me.
Tell me I'm your world, and tell me you're my girl."
It's what I need. I'm saying, "Baby, come back to me."
Track Name: Edge Of Summer
Take your time with the melody lines.
Sure, the words flow fine, but you want them to come out just right tonight.
The summer's ending, we don't have much time.
Our connection's slowly fading like the last rays of receding light on the horizon.

But I don't want this moment to end.
Though the nights are growing longer I'll be missing you my friend.

And I know that the waves won't stop coming,
The way my watch just keeps running,
The way my hands just keep strumming,
As we stand here on the edge of summer.

I'm sitting here, all alone on a pier,
Watching waves wash in from the northeastern side of the lake.
Just look how they break,
And the tips are cresting white like an island in the light.
I've got nowhere else to go but you wanna know what I've got.
Well, here's what I've got.

And I know that this night's almost through.
Can't you help make these dreams come true?

And I know that the waves won't stop coming,
The way my watch just keeps running,
The way my hands just keep strumming,
As we stand here on the edge of summer.

And I know that the waves won't stop coming,
The way my watch just keeps running,
The way my hands just keep strumming,
The way my mouth just keeps humming,
The way that time just keeps sailing by,
Like the sun across an island sky,
But no one will feel like I did, those nights,
Standing on the edge of summer.
