Track Name: I'm Young

Every time I whistled in the wind
to move the trees,
never saw the, never felt the breeze
Every time I covered up my eyes
to set the sun, it would be done

I’m young
I could move a mountain
stone by stone
It may take all day
but that’s a sacrifice I’d make

Oh Mom, don’t call me
God, Mom! Don’t call me

I could open doors for you,
don’t even need a key
Trust me, babe,
they’ll let me in for free
I’m a firecracker but don’t
come near me with a spark
I like it dark

I’m young...

My love is a deep, abiding love
It lives on the dance floor of the club
My love spans the
length and breadth of time
It lives until it dies

On reflection, I could see that
I’m a product of my time,
if I reflected
Track Name: Work It Out

If it is not knocking,
do not let it out
If it is not crying,
do not try to work things out
If it is not pretty,
then do not make out
If what’s burning is not yours then
do not put the fire out

If you cannot see it,
do not seek it out
If you cannot bear to listen,
do not hear it out
If your house is good enough,
why venture out?
If your room has what you need,
why bother going out?

Because why go out? Stay in
when the world is full of men
And so why go out at all when like
none of them will call?
So just stay home in your bed
and just hide your head instead
because without them you’re
no good to anyone

Let it out
It’ll sicken if it stays
Let it out
You know we will feel
much better this way
Work it out if we
have to talk all night
Say what’s wrong
but make sure to say
what is right
