Track Name: My Ginger Portal
Let’s have another masterpiece together
Come on let’s turn it up
And sing until our lungs collapse
Nothing could be better
Windows down in hoodie weather
Driving through New England in the fall
My Ginger Portal

Sunset
Leaves red
Like the sky and your hair
Our worries in the rear view mirror
We hit
The road
And we’re not turning back
'Til our hearts are warm again

‘Cause all the “he said she said”s
Freezing you up
Because she drank too much
And we’ve had enough
Of these people
Trying to ruin our favorite days

So let’s have another masterpiece together
Come on let’s turn it up
And sing until our lungs collapse
Nothing could be better
Windows down in hoodie weather
Driving through New England in the fall
With my Ginger Portal

You were always my escape
From terror and the pain
Of being left alone
Every time I’ve seen your face
It’s brightened my day
Even when it’s drawn on a cone

You were always my escape
From terror and the pain
Of being left alone
Every time I see your face
It brightens my day
I wish I wasn’t gone for so long

But if all the “he said she said”s
Freezing you up
And if you think too much
And you’ve had enough
Of these people
Trying to ruin your day

Then let’s have another masterpiece together
Come on let’s turn it up
And sing until our lungs collapse
Nothing could be better
Windows down in hoodie weather
Driving through New England in the fall
My Ginger Portal
Track Name: So Long (demo)
Looking back on all the love stories in my life
I found a gem I thought you might like
It's a tale that doesn't end so well
But it's one that I'll never regret
I can't forget her now
She's still in my head somehow

She said "We'll only be teens for the next few years
Let's be young while we know we still can
And when you realize don't you be surprised
At the red from my heart in your hands"
Oh she's got me right where she wanted me now
We had a love that I can never just forget about

Subtle glances in the hallways
I could swear I'd never seen her before
It would be springtime in seven days
And I still couldn't speak what I'd been dying to say
So I asked my friends "What's her deal?
And how can I steal her heart once I've caught her eye?"
They blew my cover and told her the truth
They did what I wouldn't do
And I'm so glad she didn't mind

She said "We'll only be teens for the next few years
Let's be young while we know we still can
And when you realize don't you be surprised
At the red from my heart in your hands"
Oh she's got me right where she wanted me now
We had a love that I can never just forget about

We could have taken our time, darling
We could have lost our minds too
So we didn't waste our lives
We've only got one chance to get it right
I hated to let you go
It wasn't right but it wasn't wrong
But we both had to choose
What to keep what to lose
And we decided to move on
When we said "so long"

She said that we'll only be teens for the next few years
Let's be young while we know we still can
And when you realize don't you be surprised
At the red from my heart in your hands
Oh and we are right where we want to be now
Though we had a love that we can never just forget about
Track Name: Introduction (demo)
I haven't been infatuated in quite a while
I've never seen a room light up
Like the way it does when you smile
I haven't met a girl like you in all my years alive
Until tonight

I wanna get to know you
From the inside out
Learn more about the things we talked about
If this is love
Then this is love
Let it be

I wouldn't wanna die
Without ever knowing you
Even if we fall apart
I wouldn't want to die
Without ever having known you

I'm here in the right place
At the perfect time
I slide next to you
And let you speak your mind
And I know it gets hard
When things fall apart
You're not fine
Well neither am I but I'm here
And I'm staying
And I want to hear more of what you're saying

I wanna get to know you
From the inside out
Learn more about the things we talked about
If this is love
Then this is love
Let it be

I wouldn't wanna die
Without ever knowing you
Even if we fall apart
I wouldn't want to die
Without ever having known you

I wouldn't wanna die
Without ever knowing you
Even if you break my heart
I wouldn't wanna die
Without ever having known you

I wanna know you for the rest of my days
I wanna keep you real close to me
But I wouldn't want to die
Without ever having known you

I wanna get to know you
From the inside out
Learn more about the things we talked about
If this is love
Then this is true love to me
Track Name: My Way (Our Way?) [phone demo]
You don't ever speak a word to me
Unless it's from the bottom of your heart
And, love, hope that you can't see
How torn I am that we were torn apart

If I had it my way
Oh the nights wouldn't be so cold
If I had it my way
You and I would be our home
If I had it my way
I'd have never left you all alone
But it seems this life is not mine
It seems this life is not mine

You've been the hardest part to see
The best thing that's ever happened to me
Is it better to have loved and left
Than never to have left at all?
I feel you cry when I call

If I had it my way
Oh the nights wouldn't be so cold
If I had it my way
You and I would be our home
If I had it my way
I'd have never left you all alone
But it seems this life is not mine
It seems this life is not mine

Please, love, don't let me die
Without your fingers wrapped in mine
At least one more time
One more night

You and I sit in a crowded room
But all I see is you and I say
"Hey, where's my anniversary gift?"
And you lift our clasped hands and reply
"This is it"
And in that moment
Every second spent wishing
All of the hoping and missing
Every sad thought of you
And every honest pursuit of love
In the wrong direction
Melts away
And I look down at my younger self and say
"You better cherish every second you hold that hand.
'Cause you may never get to feel this way again."
Track Name: Anthem (demo)
I look into your eyes
And I see
Just how precious life can be
Believe me when I say
You're a blessing
Words cannot express
How brave
You prove to be everyday
You're more than worth fighting for
You're an inspiration

Sometimes it slips my mind
That I can only live one day at a time
How can I help someone today?
I'm fine and it's not a crime
To help somebody who's got different problems than mine
So what do I have that I can give away?

When I'm gone
I don't just want to be remembered
For the life I lived
I want to be remembered
For the life I gave

I won't walk away
(And I won't sit in silence)
Holding on to what I have to give away
I won't walk away
(No I will not be silent)
Holding on to what I have to give away today

When I look into your eyes
I see
Just how precious life can be
Believe me when I say
You're a blessing
Words cannot express
How brave
You prove to be everyday
You're more than worth fighting for
You're an inspiration

When I'm gone
I don't just want to be remembered
For the life I lived
I want to be remembered
For the life I gave

I want my love to be true
I wanna give my love to you
I won't sit in silence
I'm gonna give my love to you
