Track Name: Everytime
With hopeful hearts we learned the business
Didn’t know what to expect
The more I start to understand it
The more I wish I could forget

It all connects, sometimes its subtle
No way to tell to what degree
And we’re all trapped by power struggles
Think back to things that comfort me

But then, I think about the colours in the morning
How sweet the air is as I ride across the river
The ways I can’t help but be similar to my brother
And how it’s music that gets me feeling better
Every time

She followed truth left only footsteps
And told her story with a cause
She changed her mind about her future
On camel beaches down in Aus

So then, I think about the colours in the morning
How sweet the air is as I ride across the river
The ways I can’t help but be similar to my brother
And how it’s music that gets me feeling better
Every time

Gets me feeling better, ever time (x3)
Let’s go!
Track Name: The Goons
There was a time in our lives
We had one common goal,
Life, it was simpler then.
15 skaters, two ‘tenders,
Our weekends were benders,
We were boys but we thought we were men.

The puck dropped at 9
And we’d skate till 11,
The beauties would cough up their lungs.
The Bell line would score
But the goons would ignore
Because winning wasn’t half of the fun

Singing no, nooo…

He was not the best skater,
But Burke he would hit ya,
No matter if you had the puck.
Coaches Ears they’d be steaming,
After 2 we weren’t winning,
They still argued who’d had the best luck.

Opponents frustrated
Through chirps we debated,
Which one had the sexiest mum.
Then there’d be a cheap shot,
Like dogs at a meat shop,
The whole team would break into a scrum.

Singing no, nooo.

(No) Chance to grow old
(No) Tales gone untold
(No) Blood running cold
These days were gold
(x2)

Tournaments in the states,
And we’d stay up too late,
With the girls that we’d met at the mall.
In the morn’ we’d feel rough
And the home team was tough
But our Canadian goalie stood tall.
Stitch up soon-to-be scars
And go straight to the bars,
Well the ones that took Young Street IDs
The shepherd brought girls, not a care in the world,
‘Cause our companions were all that we’d need.

Singing no, nooo…

(No) Chance to grow old
(No) Tales gone untold
(No) Blood running cold
These days were gold

(No) Chance to grow old
(No) Tales gone untold
And we know, the cup’s coming home
These days are gold
Track Name: Thought in Itself
When we go, you can’t take this away
So we’ll happily spend every penny we’ve made till today
And the beauty, just the thought in itself
In this instant, this moment in time I’m not with someone else

Run it out, run it out, run it out,
Run it out, run it out, run it...

When we go, you can’t take this away
So we’ll happily spend every penny we’ve made till today
And the beauty, just the thought in itself
In this instant, this moment in time I’m not with someone else
Track Name: Never Be Told
Keep your cool now
Are you feeling alone?
You don’t have too much left in your tank
And I can tell by your tone
15 hours
When you account for the snow
That old beater car powers through
Takes us further from home

On an evening
Before you had left
Felt the warmth of a woman
Her ear on your chest
In the silence
Thought that you were asleep
She whispered a four-letter promise that you couldn’t keep
Said she whispered a four-letter promise you were scared to keep

That four-letter promise, the promise of fate
It’s three in the morning, but that’s never too late
Two times the age that you were when you knew
One thing so real that it had to be true

In a day, in two weeks, in three months, in four years
We’ll take a look back and we’ll laugh at our fears
Our fears that one day we’d wake up and be old
And this cold-hearted truth to our world
Would never be told

Keep your head up
This whole thing was your choice
You believed these ideas were worth spreading and you believed in your voice
Take the chance now
Before it’s too late
‘Cause that four-letter promise you’ll keep is the promise of fate
Said that four-letter promise you’ll keep is the promise of fate

That four-letter promise, the promise of fate
It’s three in the morning, but that’s never too late
Two times the age that you were when you knew
One thing so real that it had to be true

This fire’s not dying, just needs a fresh gust of wind
Remember those people, they laughed while they sinned
This ain’t no competition, you don’t loose, you don’t win
The reward’s in the journey, and a journey it’s been

In a day, in two weeks, in three months, in four years
We’ll take a look back and we’ll laugh at our fears
Our fears that one day we’d wake up and be old
And this cold-hearted truth to our world
Would never be told
