the andy grammer obsession part 2

the andy grammer obsession part 1

 I just had to document these. Andy Grammer's songs from his second EP, Soft Lights on Bright Colors. I downloaded the songs from Grooveshark using Wondershare and then uploaded them in Tindeck. Wheew!! Anything for Andy! Hahaha! Too bad I can't find the lyrics of the other songs. Anyway, give them a listen for me.


Second EP: Soft Lights on Bright Colors (2009)

Track 01

I wrote a story I can sleep with
Sometimes at night I like to read it
Half of the time I might believe it
But its really all for me
Im putting confidence in hearsay
Im givin' circumstances its trophies
Im writin' a script where she is always
The perfect one for me
The perfect one for me, oh

(Chorus)
And oh, the saints we create when we are feeling all alone
Cause you need something
And oh, the lovers who fake the tale are made to keep us warm
Cause we need something
mmmm

Im getting caught up in the moment oh
Im using her beauty as an omen
She is the one my soul's been calling
And its really all for me
Its really all for me

(Chorus)

It goes we keep pushing,on our hearts, keep pushing,on our hearts
Tryin' to feel like we're in love
Keep pushing,on our hearts, keep pushing on our hearts
It goes we keep pushing,on our hearts,
Keep pushing, on our hearts
Tryin' to feel like were in love
Keep pushin on our hearts, keep pushing on our hearts

And I know
There is more to this
Than eyes closed and a slow romantic kiss
And we've shown, that we are bound to drift
We are searching for an anchor,
Cause the most of us are anchor-less

(Chorus)

Track 02

Driving through streetlights watching the nightlife behind the glass I'm 
driving home I chase the fireflies cackle and realize they are the birds 
when flash is gone ladies are glowing, guys are holding jars, the summer 
breeze blowing for the chasing stars 
and its all that we know 
all that we know 
it's all that we know 
but she's needing more than love outta life ay yay and all these brothers 
come at night oh no nooo
but tired and worn she know what will catch their eyes
oh
she is a gorgeous firefly... as she flies by
Waiting for loved ones to slide to the forefront fella start pondering their 
lives we wanna knock out don't wanna block out where we know we need 
to survive ladies are glowing, guys are holding jars, the summer breeze 
blowing, for the chasing stars 
chorus
and we've all wished the other would see past the cover and the leading 
and man and the leading lady need to take a stand and then maybe


Track 03

Track 04

Let's keep it casual, he says
She could not agree more as she nods her head
Let's water down this drink of ours
We'd rather lowers stakes than raise the bar

It's not looking too good 
I'm not feeling the way that I should
Try to separate the ocean from the shore
It's not looking too good
I've been wondering maybe we could
Figure out just what we're marching towards

'Cause we are, we are forcing 
Our bodies not to breathe
And we are, we are more than
Straight to DVD
And we are, we are born in 
To higher lives than these
And still we live
So casually

Let's keep it casual, she says
He could not agree more
As he gets from the bed
Let's hold back most of who we are
Can touch the body but the soul stays so far

It's not looking too good
I'm not feeling the way that I should
Try to separate the ocean from the shore
It's not looking too good
I've been wondering maybe we could
Figure out just what we're marching towards

'Cause we are, we are forcing
Our bodies not to breathe
And we are, we are
More than straight to DVD
And we are, we are born in
To higher lives than these
Still we live
So casually

Oh no no no
We are fragile
This is more than just for fun
We are noble 
Underneath all we have done
We are brilliant
If you reach beyond our skin
We are brilliant
When we finally let you in

'Cause we are, we are forcing
Our bodies not to breathe
And we are, we are more than
Straight to DVD
And we are, we are born in
To higher lives than these
Still we live
So casually

Track 05

Track 06

Lyrics
At the bass y'all
At the trumpet y'all

Well I'm five on a good day six
I got plenty of things need to fix
A bigger chest and dimples in my face
With those I could be pushin' seven to eight
Guitar in my hand add a point to my score
No car slide me down to a four
Six feet with a pair of blue eyes
Brings me back up to a five

Greater than less than equal to
You're making this way too mathematical
The value of personality seems to be dead
All walkin' around with numbered halo's on our heads well

Threes want fours and fours want fives
Eights think nines have much better lives
And it's a reasonable question to ask
I guess it's all how ya doing the math
And I can sit and I can lie to you
And say this somethin' that I don't do
But I'm another number crunchin' fool
Whose calculator's way overused

Greater than less than equal to
You're making this way too mathematical
The value of personality seems to be dead
All walkin' around with numbered halo's on our heads and I'm thinking

Just one time
I wish I could have a nine
She'd be hot and she'd be mine just one time
But for every nine there's a two starting back at you
wishing you would do what you wanted the nine to eh

90% of the mental judicial system is based solely on superficial intuition
To me that seems a bit strange
Only talk to people who we think we might be kissin'
That's a lot of ideas to be dismissing
We leave it to humans to choose the criteria we can't change

It doesn't make sense no doesn't make sense doesn't make sense
For the numbers to be where we are concentrating
In my minor sense i condense in my minor sense
Asymmetrical interactions
Simply evaporating
I'm a five on a good day six
Got plenty of things need to fix
I need a formula or some sort of plan to focus on the soda not the can

I've got a couple more years on you babe, and that's all
I've had more chances to fly, and more places to fall
And it ain't that I'm wiser, it's only that I've spent
More time with my back to the wall
And I've picked up a couple more years on you babe, that's all

I've walked a couple more roads than you babe, that's all
And I'm tired of runnin' while you're only learnin' to crawl
And you're headin' somewhere, but I've been to somewhere
And found it was nowhere at all
And I've picked up a couple more years on you babe, that's all

Now sayin' goodbye, girl, don't never come easy at all
But you've gotta fly 'cause you're hearin' them young eagles call
And someday when you're older you'll smile at a man strong and tall
And you'll say, "I've got a couple more years on you babe, that's all"

You'll say,"I've got a couple more years on you babe, that's all
I've had more chances to fly, and more places to fall
And it ain't that I'm wiser, it's only that I've spent
More time with my back to the wall
And I've picked up a couple more years on you babe, and that's all"

Track 08

Lyrics
I can't say that love is gone
Something still feels wrong
I find myself so far from you, oh
Foot in, one foot out
I chase my tail about
You analyse my every move, oh

See you don't need me now
I'll just slow you down
You can stand all on your own, oh
The love we shared was real
The secrets we revealed
I hope I was a stepping stone, oh

Because you are more yourself than when you met me
And I can say the same
I'm more myself than when I met you

And oh, I just want you to know
This is not a waste of time
There's so much more below
The surface we all search to find
The one's that help us grow
And you have done that much for me
And I hope I've been a stepping stone
Looking back on what was done
Sure, I hurt you some
Sure, you threw a few low blows, oh
But when the bruises heal
I'll take down my shield
And thank God above I know you

Because you are more yourself than when I met you
And I can say the same
I'm more myself than when I met you

And oh, I just want you to know
This is not a waste of time
There's so much more below
The surface we all search to find
The one's that help us grow
And you have done that much for me

So please I ask you don't
Toss the work we've done aside
Because we're letting go
This is just a piece of life
Focus on the whole
We have come so far

Well I hope you use my back to step across the pond
And I hope by pushing off me, you will land upon
The guy who's surely out there to whom you belong
Find him now

And oh, I just want you to know
This is not a waste of time
There's so much more below
The surface we all search to find
The one's that help us grow
And you have done that much for me

So please I ask you don't
Toss the work we've done aside
Because we're letting go
This is just a piece of life
Focus on the whole
We have come so far

Sing it out,
I needed, I needed
To meet you

Check out also the first part of this obsession, HERE! :) Hafta Goo! Hope everyone's having a fine Saturday morning. ♥
