Track Name: Forever Starts Now
long nights long days
short weeks strange pace
huge dose of oxytocin
deep breaths no pain
deep kiss just stay
young love in summer haze

and you say you can't wait till forever comes round
and i say there's no need to look down

and if we wait it out, forever could start right now
no worries about missing flights out
you don't have to leave my side, don't you see these stars in my eyes
no worries, just turn the lights out, forever starts now

cold wind cold hands
warm hearts big plans
making love to your favorite band
last kiss for the road
tight grip don't let go
we don't have to be alone

and you say that you hate when you have to leave
and i say baby just stay here with me

if we wait it out, forever could start right now
no worries about missing flights out
you don't have to leave my side, don't you see these stars in my eyes
no worries, just turn the lights out, forever starts now

we don't make time, we've got all the time in the world
now, sweetheart don't cry, it's just you and me forever never ever gonna say goodbye

oh if we wait it out, forever can start right now
no worries about missing flights out
you don't have to leave my side, don't you see these stars in my eyes
no worries, just close your eyes now darling

if we wait it out, forever could start right now
no worries about missing flights out, missin my baby
you don't have to leave my side, don't you see these stars, stars shining in my eyes
no worries, just turn the lights out, forever starts now
Track Name: Stiff Neck
I always think about that night
You rode away with me
On a coach bus to the city
And then how you fell asleep
While we were watching Woody Allen
on that grainy little screen
above our heads and how
I tried to lean on you but it hurt my neck

Every now and then I think about
how we got lost in central park
In the rain on our way
To see your cousin and your aunt
and we were scared we wouldn't make it
before it got too dark
two tiny infants crawling their way across
the grimy sidewalks

But New York is no place for cover
no shelter from growing up
and all you little girls end up just like your mothers
you don't care enough and then you care way too much

And I can't promise I'll remember
To visit you at college in the spring
I'll be so busy trying to stay seventeen
I'll barely even have time to think

I always think about that time
that we stayed in bed all day
watching Harry Potter with hot chocolate
that my mom made
as much as i love to adventure
stroll around the city streets
i think i'm happiest
alone with you, with your mixtape on repeat

cos New York is no place for me
no refuge from the steady humming drone
of businesspeople's shuffling feet
and my undying fear of dying alone

no I can't promise I'll remember
To visit you in Boston once you're set
cos i don't know if i'm really what you want
or just a choice you made that you'll eventually regret

i'm so sick of sleeping alone
but i should catch some z's before i see you next
with my stiff neck and my bloodshot eyes
i'll try my best to visit but i'm likely to forget

I always think about that night
You came home with me
On a train back from the city
And then how I fell asleep
While I was staring out the window
at the skyline's passing view
when i woke up you just hushed me
and said i could sleep on you
