the andy grammer obsession

 the andy grammer obsession part 4

 One lazy Wednesday afternoon, I found myself obsessing with Andy Grammer again. This time though my obsession got a notch worse to the point that I actually registered to Andy Grammer Nation just to find his old songs. I found out that even before his self-titled album, Andy Grammer of course, he already released a couple of EP's, Extended Play that is. His First EP is The World is Yours released back in 2007. He actually sold that album personally to people when he was still a busker in Santa Monica. That got me admiring him all the more. Hahaha! Patay na patay lang ang peg. :P

And while I'm still downloading the tracks on his second EP, Soft Lights on Bright Colors, you might want to listen to the tracks below from his first EP. Hihihi. Tara, kanta! 

First EP: The World is Yours (2007)

Track 01

This is the song that you throw on
When life is feeling rather long
And you're longing for confidence to make it

And these are the words that make you feel
That all your dreams aren't dreams
But real events that simply haven't taken place yet 

But if you stare high
The sky will come right down and kiss you
If you keep your head towards the stars
They will assist you

The world is yours
The world is yours

This is the time of night
When all the streetlights rub their waking eyes
The day and night find compromise in dark blue

This is the magic in the air
That whispers, "You are almost there"
The worries, cares, and daydreamers will leave soon

But if you stare high
The sky will come right down and kiss you
If you keep your head towards the stars
They will assist you

The world is yours
The world is yours

Well, this is the song that you throw on
When life is feeling rather long
And you're longing for confidence to make it

And these are the words that make you feel
That all your dreams aren't dreams
But real events that simply haven't taken place yet 

But if you stare high
The sky will come right down and kiss you
But if you keep your head towards the stars
They will assist you

The world is yours
The world is yours
What are you waiting for?

The world is yours
The world is yours

Track 03

Our conversations are flying home tonight
Honeymooners, returning on a midnight flight
They are coming back to normal lives
Vacations morph into nine-to-fives
And I slip off this rosy pair
Of lenses and you're still beautiful
Smoke has cleared, the wrapping tears
Bright lights fade, and you're still beautiful
I sense you shaving off my mysteries
And knowing my trophies have realistic histories
The fish have gone aback to normal size
A man of limits stands before your gentle eyes
And I slip off this rosy pair
Of lenses and you're still beautiful
Smoke has cleared, the wrapping tears
Bright lights fade, and you're still beautiful
I start with my nose at the painting
Slowly step back and this is amazing
Dr. Cal has a patient-ly waiting for me to earn them
"Real" is harder to see in a smile
Tears break the seal of denial
Rosy colors are nice for a while but now I'm learning
And I slip off this rosy pair
Of lenses and you're still beautiful

Track 04

Touch that is the new condition
All of my thoughts positioned towards the ground where I can stand
Such, it's such an easy surrender
When we become pretenders sending dreams up in balloons that never land

Some day I will be a millionaire
I'd rather talk about it then be here

Well I am busy planning a wedding
Although I keep on forgetting that I do not have a wife
And my recipes are so enticing 
Focusing time on the icing of the cakes that seem to make up all my life

Some day I will be a millionaire
I'd rather talk about it then be here
Lately everything it seems so clear

It's that I never want to lie
It's that I'm never going to lie
Well I wasn't made to lie

I want to feel 
Like the missing puzzle piece of something that's real
Bring to the table, something that's stable

And I don't need to fool this light 
That is such an ugly fight and I
Never liked acting much
Anything I do now I need to touch

I'm running around in a costume
Slowing me down as I'm posturing myself to gain the wealth of what I'm not
Hey everyone sees it's a costume
Take it off maybe I'll blossom into who it is I was but just forgot

Track 05

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
