Track Name: Crystal Clear
It was a long December, it was cold and dry
It felt like forever ago we set our love aside
And we didn’t even know why we did it
We couldn’t find the line to finish
I think about it from time to time
What life would be like if we hadn’t left it behind
And there’s no sense dwelling but my heart is swelling

I can somehow smell your perfume in the hall
There’s still pictures hanging on the wall
I tried to take them down it’s not my fault
It’s just so hard to move on theses days

It was about time that January came
It was a new year, it was new me, it was fresh start
This time I made a promise myself not to fall apart
But I eventually did in the ballpark
Where I met you, where you met me
We were playing baseball in a league
It was my all time fantasy
Something that only happens in dreams

I can somehow smell your perfume in the hall
There’s still pictures hanging on the wall
I tried to take them down it’s not my fault
It’s just so hard to move on theses days

I see you in my dreams, I see you in my mirror
I see you crystal clear, I see you in my pictures
I don’t know why but it’s so hard to move on

I can somehow smell your perfume in the hall
There’s still pictures hanging on the wall
I tried to take them down it’s not my fault
It’s just so hard to move on theses days

I see you in my dreams, I see you in my mirror
I see you crystal clear, I see you in my pictures
I don’t know why but it’s so hard to move on
Track Name: Northbound
Coming down, get ready
Shaky hands, keep ‘em steady
With a rose, I’m standing
Come on hands, stop shaking

Not one to stir the pot
I like you a lot
Now here comes the plot
I like you a lot
You’re always in my thoughts
Now I’ve been love shot
I like you a lot
I like you a lot

Roll like a bowling ball down the lane
Take out the pins that are standing in our way
Live like this will be our last day
Oh hey, I’m glad we’ve got each other

Northbound, we’re heading
Summertime, we’re sweating
In the car, we’re holding hands
I gave heart to yours
Now we are transcending

Not one to stir the pot
I like you a lot
Now here comes the plot
I like you a lot
You’re always in my thoughts
Now I’ve been love shot
I like you a lot
I like you a lot

Roll like a bowling ball down the lane
Take out the pins that are standing in our way
Live like this will be our last day
Oh hey, I’m glad we’ve got each other
Track Name: We Are Not Doomed...Yet
Before I met you I was living my life like a king
Wrapped up in myself I didn’t care about anyone or about anything
I’m not proud about what I did and I hope that you will forgive
It’s about time that I give back instead of taking in

Shuffle your feet a little more to the left
Take a step forward and then take a step back
We’ve got to make a plan and we’ll do this over again
This time I will not fail you, no more playing pretend
This is not how it ends

And now that you are on my side
I never want to say goodbye
We were apart for so long
Once we get this plan finalized
I know that you will realize
We were apart for too long
But it was out of our control
We left it up to fate
Sometimes you get it right
And sometimes it’s too late

When I first met you, we took a walk through the park
Laughter was shared and we never came home until after dark
And I looked into your eyes and you looked into mine
that’s when I knew we are not doomed…yet

And now that you are on my side
I never want to say goodbye
We were apart for so long
Once we get this plan finalized
I know that you will realize
We were apart for too long
But it was out of our control
We left it up to fate
Sometimes you get it right
And sometimes it’s too late
