        3. Mess Is Mine
        4. Saturday Sun
        5. Fire and the Flood


Length: 3:24

Opening Lyrics:

I was scared of dentists and the dark
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations
Oh, all my friends are turning green
You’re the magician’s assistant in their dream
Ah-ooh-ooh-ooh, ah-ahh-ah-ah
And they come unstuck
Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you’re singing that song
And I got a lump in my throat
‘Cause you’re gonna sing the words wrong


Length: 3:50

Release: 2015

Opening Lyrics:

She is something to behold
Elegant and bold
She is electricity
Running to my soul, oh
And I could easily lose my mind
The way you kiss me will work each time
Calling me to come back to bed
Singing Georgia on my mind
And I, and I
Lips generous and warm
You build me up like steps
Eyes innocent and wild
Remind me what it’s like, oh

Mess Is Mine

Length: 3:43

Release: 2014

Opening Lyrics:

Talking like we used to do
It was always me and you
Shaken up and shipping out
Check me in and check me out
Do you like walking in the rain
When you think of love, do you think of pain
You can tell me what you see
I will choose what I believe
Hold on, darling
This body is yours, this body is yours and mine
Hold on my darling
This mess was yours, now your mess is mine

Saturday Sun

Length: 3:34

Release: 2018

Opening Lyrics:

Oh, Saturday Sun
I met someone
Out on the West Coast
I gotta get back, I can’t let this go
Oh, Saturday Sun
I met someone
Don’t care what it costs
No ray of sunlight’s ever lost
So tired of sleepin’ alone
So tired of eatin’ alone
I need to ask her what’s goin’ on
Are we goin’ strong?
She felt like resting her head
My shoulder was the perfect height
We fit so right, so what’s goin’ on?

Fire and the Flood

Length: 4:09

Release: 2015

Opening Lyrics:

I was only walking through your neighborhood
Saw you out loud honey in the cold I stood
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are
I been getting used to waking up with you
I been getting used to waking up here
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are
There you are
There you are
You’re the fire and the flood
And I’ll always feel you in my blood
Everything is fine
When your hand is resting next to mine
