Track Name: Hometown
Hope, I just hope I can do this
I just hope we get through this
And make it out alright
I just want you to know
I didn’t really mean to lose it
All I really have is music
And a voice that’s mine

I’ll make some beautiful sounds
That will keep you around
Just long enough for us to leave this town
But turn around and never forget
Your looking at the city that raised you kid
I got money on my mind just not in my pocket
Not at this time it just left my wallet
I’m looking for the sweetness where is the chocolate
I’m looking for the flowers tell me where do they blossom
I was fucking born here, raised in Austin
Now the red river district is destroyed and forgotten
They really left me no further option
I’ma get up and do something I promise

Hope, I just hope I can do this
I just hope we get through this
And make it out alright

Let me out, let me out
I’ve been in this town for too long now
and I’m moving on now
It’s time for this kid to graduate
I’ve learned a lot of lessons from my mistakes
I’m making these songs, I’ma make them loud
I’m made by friends so I’ma make them proud
And if you're in the crowd then you’re helping out
I’m feeling your vibe if you’re moving around
I’m feeling this show and it’s where I belong
I’m feeling your heart as it beats along
To the music I make through love or hate
I just create cause I’m trying to relate

I’m already gone, yeah I’m already gone
I’ll see you in a year cause I know where I’m from
I’m already gone, so long so long
I’ll see you in a year when I come back home
I’m bending my knees and I’m turning my cheek
And I’m pouring my soul into a melody
I’m already gone, yeah I’m already gone
So long so long, I’ll see you when I’m home
Track Name: 0505
I can’t think
I’ve got a lot
Upstairs where it’s getting hot
My mind is blown
It’s over loaned
I need an answer to the radio
I’m growing up
I fell in love
But one time was just not enough
But I’m a man
Who stays committed
To the game and I live with it

I had to be someone can you blame me girl for the things I’ve done
I had to be somewhere can you blame me girl for not being there anymore

I messed up
But so did you
It’s only fucked up cause it’s nothing new
Clothes on the ground
Your guard is down
All we need is the pills and crown
Packin the punches and sellin the crops
Stackin the hundreds and it never stops
Fastin it in to stay out of the box
Cashin it in cause I paid off the cops
Live with it, you won't have to refrain
With it we can buy a house in spain
Give it a year, we’ll be poppin champagne
Admittedly it comes with a lot more pain

I had to be someone can you blame me girl for the things I’ve done
I had to be somewhere can you blame me girl for not being there anymore
Track Name: Heartbeat
I shouldn’t be here but I park on your street
You give me that stare but you we stay discreet
You climb into my back seat
We roll around listening to J biebs

Feeling all these things on the inside
But I don’t let you know, no, I don’t let them show
I can’t see your eyes in this barlight
If you wanna take a ride we can take it outside
Where you wanna go and where you wanna roll
We’ll be fine as long as we’re alone

I can feel your heartbeat
Feel your heartbeat (4X)

I shouldn’t be here but I’m three bars deep
You give me that glare but you don’t speak
You always push away what you can’t keep
You always stay close cause you can’t leave

Feeling all this tension in between us is
Pulling us closer and we don’t trust it
I can see your body in the starlight
All I wanna do is make you mine
I can feel rich and only have one dime
I can feel the notches running down your spine

I can feel your heartbeat
Feel your heartbeat (4X)

We can be on the cover of the rolling stone
We can hang with Drake and the OVO
I can be the man to take you home
I ain't gotta be alone to be in my zone (2X)
Track Name: Touch
Listen to me now cause I just wanna know how to make you smile
Listen to me now cause I miss you when you were wild
I hope you miss my touch cause I can’t go back, I can’t go back
I miss you so much but I can’t go back, girl I can’t go back

Anymore…

All the weight I hope it’s better when I’m sorry that I can’t decide
I hope it’s better when I know fo sho…

I caught you dreamin about all the reasons we could just get away
With my knife I carved a hole in the sky so we could see a better day
I would take your love, put it in a bottle, in case we had to separate
You and I, girl we could make a difference
If we tried to make the right decisions

Well all we are
Are projections of the stars
Durations of our lives
Are reflections of the times

I miss your touch and I miss your style
(Yeah I do)
I miss you so much and I miss you when we were wild
(We used to run around, run around)
Listen to me now cause I can’t go back, I can’t go back
(Can we look ahead)
Listen to me now cause I can’t go back, girl I can’t go back

Anymore…
Track Name: Fortify
I want to fortify
I’m sittin in the back where I’m out of sight
I want to hold you close
Don’t want to ever see you go

You always seem to get the best of me
When I step on the side of jealousy
But who needs that now we’ve got this house locked

Down my love
Where did you go from here
And where did you run to my dove
And why did you leave me so…

I want to solidify
My trust in you is running dry
I want to hold you close
Don’t want to ever see you go
You always seem to get the best of me
When I step on the side of jealousy
But who needs that now we’ve got this house locked

Down down down again
I’m calling up my friends
Who’d crawl crawl over you
I’ve got that new new
All Alright again
I see you all amongst my friends

Where did you go my love
And why did you leave me here
And where did you run to my dove
And why did you leave me so…

I want to fortify
I’m sittin in the back where I’m out of sight
I want to hold you close
Don’t want to ever see you go

Down down down again
I’m calling up my friends
Who’d crawl crawl over you
I’ve got that new new
All Alright again
I see you all amongst my friends
Track Name: Always
At 17 I fell deep for MK
It was on Venice beach back in LA
I remember her stare
I could feel it in the air
I remember her hairspray

I knew how to make you feel grounded
Held your hand when we road space mountain
If out of the blue you wanna see it all through girl…

I’ll be here always, be here always
Girl you know me, I’m just your homie
Who will be here always, be here always
Girl you know me, I’m just your homie

So please tell me how you’re feeling right now
Cause I can tell by how you lookin
And I’m all in my feelings right now
But that’s just cause I’m sippin 2X

Winter's come around, It’s gettin colder
I heard that you older, I put a nice jacket right around your shoulders
Took you dinner, I’m stressed out, boulder on my back but I ain’t really trippin
You could probably catch me in the kitchen I ain’t wippin
But I could if I did I’d probably be so great
Got other things goin like spittin on this tape
But back to the date
I think we went to Uchi yeah that food was fucking great
I met her in LA
I flew her down Austin now I see her everyday
She’s 45 but she looks like 20
This my truck lil mamma ain’t a rentie
She said never call me that cause I’m older
I told ya I don’t care about your age I got paid

I’ll be here always, be here always
Girl you know me, I’m just your homie
Who will be here always, be here always
Girl you know me, I’m just your homie

And I’m always chillin and I know it’s not right
I hope you don’t got plans late at night
I wanna be your secret, keep me a secret
Girl can you and I could make an agreement

So please tell me how you’re feeling right now
Cause I can tell by how you lookin
And I’m all in my feelings right now
But that’s just cause I’m sippin 2X
Track Name: Whitenoise
There’s someone in the corner
Playing games I know too well
But once you play you’ll never leave
It’s a prison we’ve built ourselves

The TV’s on all night
But what the hell for
It covers silence
But I’m drowning in the whitenoise

You might as well
You might as well just hold me, or leave me, and I’m empty
And it’s all the same
But I just can’t tell 3X

But I just can’t tell 6X

There’s someone always watchin and they’re social game is strong
But when I seem to need them they’ve already moved on
The rivers run all night
They’re running down to the shore
They cover up the silence
But I’m drowning in the whitenoise

You might as well
You might as well just hold me, or leave me, and I’m empty
And it’s all the same
But I just can’t tell 3X

But I just can’t tell 6X
Track Name: Landscape
My, my ideas are a landscape
My, my ideas are a get away
For you to run with your hands outside and your hair kissed by the sun
But before you say goodbye hide yourself a key for the other side 2X
Track Name: Man
No one’s happy, no one’s happy if they never get what they want
If they want what they can’t afford, where does happiness come from
There’s a question in the sky and I’ve looked it in the eye but I still don’t understand
If there is a god who can make what he wants, why would he create a man
