Track Name: Sweet Times Run
Something in the air is full of promise yet regret. Could it be the local brewery? I could stay outside all night with friends like family, drinking pints and smoky scotch whiskey.

It's not about the weather or whether or not we're young; it simply has to do with the fun. The company is there and that's all that need be done; watch as the sweet times run.

We'll meet up in Logan Square, try out this new age pub, then we'll stumble out into my neighborhood. Regardless of what happens next, I know we'll have a ball. Someday we'll tell our kids we've done it all.

Tell me now that you feel well, this much it must be true. That horn-filled bridge should cure bad attitude.
If you're still down in the dumps, something thing has to be wrong. Find and friend and sing with them this song.
Track Name: Uninvited September
Uninvited September is getting really near. But I'm not gonna let it in this year.
The leaves they will remain, the heat will do the same. No school for kids, at home they'll stay.

Stay away September. You aren't welcome in my city.
Why don't you ride a rocket to the sun, and no I won't come.
Stay away September, chill out with October. Could you tell November that he and December aren't welcome until I say?

Where's Mr. Magical Weather Man when I want him? He could wave his wand and freeze this forecast now.
Instead I've gotta play the enemy, and greet this month less than friendly. Holding up a sign saying turn around.

I, slept with my window cracked last night and woke up tight in my own hold, I felt my face and such enough, it was unusually cold.
How could I've possibly avoided such a thing? I'd put my fists in the air, protesting all the changes that this life would surely bring.

Uninvited September is getting really near. I'm not gonna let it in...
Track Name: Serendipity
The sun is hotter than it’s ever been
I’ll wait inside for the Chicago wind
That I’ve been told about many times before
And I could surely use it at my door

I bike up California Avenue and I peruse through all of the new storefronts and street views
My new sense of direction is refreshing like a mint infused beverage on a summer’s afternoon

I go along with the flow of things, like a river in a big ravine
Content being just a stream
We should take notes on neutrality, like the trees and birds and bees
Content with serendipity, na na, na na na, serendipity

Sparks on train tracks, that’s a new sight, in fact I didn’t even know they did that
But now I do
All these observations, creating this new adaptation of me
C'est la vie


You hear these sounds, like something new
Pipe dreams emerge, back-burners too
We've been waiting for routine days to pass
Believe me, I hope this feeling lasts
