Track Name: Ready to Run
Ready To Run by Dylan Kalogris

(Verse 1)
My first real trip on a subway
finally takin' in the city lights
livin' my life like a runaway
gotta figure out where to set my sights

(refrain)
yeah, I don't know where I'm goin
Tired, but I'm not gunna show it
Ain't afraid of not knowin'
Got an idea, but it aint my plan
Crazy idea, no it aint my plan

(Pre-chorus)
Yeah--

(Chorus)
Oooh, our time's gunna come
but it's gunna fly
we'll be racin' it towards the sky
This is you, This is me
This is fine and this is free
Oooh, I'm ready to run

(Verse 2)
Lets make our way down the highway
Find that place it all feels right
the heart in my chest is pounds away
This hesitation's gunna stop tonight

(Refrain)
yeah, I don't know where I'm goin
Tired, but I'm not gunna show it
Ain't afraid of not knowin'
Got an idea, but it aint my plan
Crazy idea, no it aint my plan

(Pre-chorus)
Yeah--

(Chorus)
Oooh, our time's gunna come
but it's gunna fly
we'll be racin' it towards the sky
This is you, This is me
This is fine and this is free
Oooh, our time's gunna come
but it's gunna fly
we'll be racin' it towards the sky
This is you, This is me
This is fine and this is free
Oooh, I'm ready to run
Track Name: Waste My Life (Feat Brian Gallagher)
Under these city lights
you catch me staring in your eyes
"Well, What's up?" you ask
and I just smiled

I whispered in your ear

Take a walk with me
No, we don't have to talk
They say we're wasting time.
Well, it's their loss
Just keep glowing like you are
and if they're right,
I'd waste my life with you

We live on borrowed time
I've been rushing through my life
I never could slow down
until you came around

Till you whispered in my ear

Take a walk with me
No, we don't have to talk
They say we're wasting time.
Well, it's their loss
Just keep glowing like you are
and if they're right,
I'd waste my life with you
Track Name: Your Heartbeat
I don't need to touch you to feel your heartbeat
Neither do you, you know you're in my heart
and on my mind

'Cause I'm goin', I ain't leaving, no
'Cause I'm goin', I ain't leaving, no
'Cause I'm goin', I ain't leaving, no

All of this distance, all of this pain
circling around us, won't let it get in our way
or break our faith

'Cause I'm goin', I ain't leaving, no
'Cause I'm goin', I ain't leaving, no
'Cause I'm goin', I ain't leaving, no

Hold my picture
Read my letter
Remember then

'Cause I'm goin', I ain't leaving, no
'Cause I'm goin', I ain't leaving, no
'Cause I'm goin', I ain't leaving, no

No, I don't need to touch you to feel your heartbeat
Track Name: Photograph
Take me back to that photograph
that I took of you on our very first date.
The wind whippin' by,
your hair blown all around
I pushed it behind your ear.

(Chorus)
Oh, your smile, your stare
The sun in your hair
Ain't all that makes you beautiful
Oh, The mind you possess
The heart in your chest
There's more to you than lovely

(Verse 2)
Someone said you were packin' up
That you're movin' out to Tennessee
Don't let this be goodbye,
I see it in your eyes
That you don't really want to leave

(Bridge)
You're walking out to the cab
I pulled up to your house
Thought that I missed you
I almost lost you

(Chorus 2)
Oh, you're standing right there
No seconds to spare
Gotta take this chance before you go
Oh, I don't want to miss
What we could have been
I think it's still what we should be

(Verse 3)
You turned back and dropped your bags
Both hearts skipped a beat when you ran to me
We've lost enough time,
Let's pick up where we left
Your picture's worth a thousand words

(Chorus)
Track Name: Head and Heart
Rainy night, walking on the side of the road
street lights, reflecting like rays of gold
living out a story never told
soaking wet, I could hardly see
a new beginning was here inside of me

Battle line, drawn between my head and heart
until now the sides were so far apart
internal tension flying off the chart
Cautious smile, afraid my soul might break.
Losing love was no chance I would take

How I dealt with you had to change
Resolution finally in range

Get out of my own way,
learn from my mistakes,
now regrets have no place,
happy here in this new space
I'll be singing my new song
where my head and heart belong

The new me comes clean,
has new priorities,
your love is all I need

Get out of my own way,
learn from my mistakes,
now regrets have no place,
happy here in this new space
I'll be singing my new song
where my head and heart belong
