love doesn't get old it just gets older and to start doesn't take that long to make it lasting that takes longer before I sure felt it strong but now it's stronger and I know we don't have it wrong or I wouldn’t write this song girl toss and turn now I’m sleeping with a smile in that kind of book we’d have our own section and style when you’re close to me I can’t tell begin from end and if I’m stepping back it's just to see again love doesn't get old it just gets older and to start doesn't take that long to make it lasting that takes longer before I sure felt it strong but now it's stronger and I know we don't have it wrong or I wouldn’t write this song girl at Christmastime I was searching for ideas yeah it's really tough when you're so easy to please but that's a dumb complaint and a trait I'd hate to lose 'cuz Carrie Bradshaw'd spend all my cash on shoes when we’re older we’ll look back and we’ll thank our stars we jumped this train because love doesn't get old it just gets older and to start doesn't take that long to make it lasting that takes longer before I sure felt it strong but now it's stronger and I know we don't have it wrong or I wouldn’t write this song girl ‘cuz the feeling's getting stronger and the lasting's lasting longer

What We'd Do 03:56
I’d give up a year for a week in your thighs just to taste and feel you that would keep me alive yea I’m thirty three and I’m a dirty old man but get you in my sheets and I’ll be ready again some people live their lives trying not to get hurt but with moves like yours oh baby do your worst yeah scratch me burn me stab me honey bring me a thrill and if the neighbors hear we can send them a bill I can’t keep pretending that I’ve not been spending all my fitful nights dreaming of you and what we’d do there are some girls who hook you with a glance but when they start to talk the moment’s ruined fast but as I take you in it’s like a molten ore something dark and deep that makes me want your core I can’t keep pretending that I’ve not been spending all my fitful nights dreaming of you and what we’d do

under summer stars backseat of a car smell the ocean air gently stirs your hair daddy drives the car momma’s got his arm radio plays a song softly hum along may you return to find peace here again spent the day in sand sparkling on your hand bay was calm and soft sea held you aloft chose a waffle cone bought it on your own proud of what you’d got ran back to our spot may you return to find peace here we all get older son but may you find the sun half as bright as the light that you shine on me may you return to find peace here may you return to find peace here again
4.
blue sky and breeze the weather in Kansas is heavenly we’re at your place with the windows wide the radio’s on we’re singin’ like fools to “that girl is poison” your couch is soft and your smile is sly you keep pouring out another glass of wine your hands are elegant your wit so crisp and fine and so you’re my sauvignon blanc you're my sauvignon blanc april abounds cherry tree blossoms all over town joy is exploding in gentle rounds we’re climbing the bough I’m snapping your photo as the sun shines down you’re lovelier than any wedding gown you keep pouring out another glass of wine but I don’t need another round I feel sublime because you’re my sauvignon blanc you're my sauvignon blanc you ask me if I want some too but can’t you see I’m drunk on you? you’re my sauvignon blanc
5.
I hear the cheers when I dive well beneath the blue my heart is in my ears I part the waves in an instant it's how I dream to part the sea we got the news of your deployment just before I made the team I cried for days in our apartment you helped me keep the counters clean "Welcome Home" they’re chanting as I’m standing here in Greece but we're not home and I don't feel patriotic in the least I was raised in a small town before the pain I learned to tuck and roll I stumbled down into the pool in my backyard floating weightless made me whole When we met I had been drinking that disaster of a dive and though your manners then and now could use some work I still want you back alive "Welcome Home" they’re chanting as I’m standing here in Greece but you're not home and I don't feel patriotic in the least I’ll win this gold you'll read it on a wire later on but don’t you dare be bold we’ll come up for air together when we’re done (She takes to the air...) "Welcome Home" they’re chanting as I’m standing here in Greece but you're not home and I don't feel patriotic in the least I’ll win this gold you'll read it on a wire later on but don’t you dare be bold we’ll come up for air together when we’re done
6.
bent so far back my head can touch my feet there still ain't no way our hands will meet I'm in the dark waiting for the cops there's no greater way I could mess up you overwhelm me like a bomb there's so little left for you to harm if I saw you walking down my block I'm pretty sure my heart would stop but I guess I'll never know there's a school bus driving down my street such a foggy day the kids will meet when I was young I'd be lost in thought making spaceship sounds everywhere I walked the city skyline made me smile a million doors and lights for miles if I went out searching and stopped time would I find you with that heart of mine well I guess I’ll never know
7.
I rode the waves to Carthage the mottled sky I left in smoke and fragments no alibi I sifted the soil and I smoothed out the land thought love would alight when I opened my hand but the scene that I’d staged was run down in the mist ‘cuz you don’t exist I was naive and simple I entered in I found the tombs, the bedrooms the hearts in tins I’ll pluck out the eyes of the Pharaohs I’m told my pockets will burst from the weight of the gold I’ll strike you out with the greed in my fist ‘cuz you don’t exist I sifted the soil and I smoothed out the land thought love would alight when I opened my hand I’ll strike you out with the greed in my fist ‘cuz you don’t exist

Monica 03:12
Monica you're a nation rising over me I’m in the oval office and you're the one I see when I try to read about Zimbabwe Monica the Secretary is updating me on the rising price of wheat but a hunger would be fed if I could get you in my bed Monica you know I'd call in NATO Monica If I thought I'd win this war Monica It’s midnight and I’m dialing Monica I can't help myself no more Monica the lives of kings are full of Brutuses they think they've got their man but I know you understand ‘cuz of where you put my hand Monica I'm not a saint, I've proven that to you I'd lie to all of them but I clenched my knuckles white when they made me lie to you Monica you know I'd call in NATO Monica If I thought I'd win this war Monica It’s midnight and I’m dialing Monica I can't help myself no more (I was keeping quiet to hide what we do But how can I miss writing history with you?)
9.
a layer of clouds hangs like a shroud a sudden snowflake it’s getting me down I’ve got the blues from too much news war and earthquake it’s getting me down but you’re not alone no you’re not alone ‘cuz I’m coming home where I’ll be alone with you we moved out here no family near I miss my sister it’s getting me down I drive my car from near to far the daily grinding is wearing me down but you’re not alone no you’re not alone ‘cuz I’m coming home where I’ll be alone with you with you with you with you but you’re not alone no you’re not alone ‘cuz I’m coming home where I’ll be alone with you I’m not alone no I’m not alone ‘cuz you’re coming home where you’ll be alone with me

bursting bright blue sky you’re the reason why foot is tapping time teachers speak in rhyme sitting here in school grinning like a fool I’m not gonna lie you’re the reason why almost three fifteen life is so serene I’ll be skipping home to the telephone checked the box by “yes” made my heart fluoresce clouds are gliding by you’re the reason why bursting through my door backpack to the floor gotta call my friends when I’m sane again school is almost done summer’s gonna come my world’s flung so wide you’re the reason why you turn my world on to light make colors look bright you’re the swing in my set let’s lie down in the grass that cloud’s a giraffe feels like sun when you laugh you’re the reason why I don’t feel so shy I feel twice as tall walking down the hall flipped a switch in me when we went to see your new favorite band and you held my hand all these brand new hues how you’ve been my muse you don’t have to try you’re the reason why you turn my world on to light make colors look bright you’re the swing in my set let’s lie down in the grass that cloud’s a giraffe feels like sun when you laugh as you lean on my shoulder I know that this world’s for me you turn my world on to light make colors look bright you’re the swing in my set let’s lie down in the grass that cloud’s a giraffe feels like sun when you laugh you turn my world on to light you’re the swing in my set let’s lie down in the grass feels like sun when you laugh

In loving memory of Sayaka Kanade.

Jesse thanks Anne Ray, Steph Kates and Camry Ivory for their editorial eyes, Will Leathem for his rabble-rousing and strategizing, Chuck Whittington for the generous loan of keyboards, amps and guitar pedals, Ray Haines for his guitar tech wizardry, Mike Miller for his hospitality, Dale Maxfield for his angel investing, Russell Thorpe for blowing reeds like Donkey Kong throws barrels, and Zac Eubank for his competence and nearly self-immolating talent. Love always to my wife Stephanie, to Tobias with his infinite imagination, and to Jonas, who always asks for more when my music stops.

Camry thanks the Ivory & Clardy households, Sarah LaBarr, and The Babygurls.

Mark thanks his dad for teaching him how to learn through listening.
