Tracklist

I Got You

composer: Jack Johnson
lyricist: Jack Johnson

Back when all my little goals seemed so important
Every pot of gold fill and full of distortion
Heaven was a place still in space not in motion
But soon

I got you
I got everything
I’ve got you
I don’t need nothing
More than you
I got everything
I’ve got you
We went walking through the hills
Tryin’ to pretend that we both know
Maybe if we save up
We can build a little home
But then the hell storm came and yelled,
“You need to let go, you’ve got no control. No.”

I got you
I got everything
I’ve got you
I don’t need nothing
More than you
I got everything
I’ve got you

This weight’s too much alone
Some days I can’t hold it at all
You take it on for me
When tomorrow’s too much
I’ll carry it all
I’ve got you

And when tomorrow’s too much
I’ll carry it all
I got you

I got you
I got everything
I’ve got you
I don’t need nothing
More than you
I got everything
I’ve got you

Washing Dishes

length: 3:24
In the morning when the world came awake
Before you knew me I knew your name
It was painted across the day as it breaks
An impression in your window frame

When you saw me out your window
Singing from the garden
Only the beginning
I'm only getting started
I don't mind the digging
Baby, I'll work harder
I've been washing dishes
Singing from the bottom

But one day I'll be running this place
And one day I could take you away
But I want you to wonder what's my name
Because I need you to want me the same

When you saw me washing dishes
Singing from the bottom
Only the beginning
I'm only getting started
I don't mind the digging
Baby, I'll work harder
I've been in the ashes
Singing from the garden

Where everything reaches for the sun
Still unsure of what we'll become
But I need you to reach out to me
See in me more than I could see
Because I'm afraid that

One day is only two words we say
I don't want to let them get in the way
Of all the plans that we should be making right now
Right now

Who took the time and where did they take it
I want to take it back
I don't want them to break it
All these plans that we should be making right now
Right now

You see now one day I'll be running this place
One day I could take you away
But I want you to wonder what's my name
Because I need you to want me the same

When you saw me out your window
Singing from the garden
Only the beginning
I'm only getting started
I don't mind the digging
Baby, I'll work harder
I've been washing dishes
Singing from the bottom

One day is only two words we say
I don't want to let them get in the way
Of all these plans that we should be making right now
Right now

Who took the time and where did they take it
I want to take it back
I don't want them to break it
All these plans that we should be making right now

Shot Reverse Shot

length: 3:11
Shot reverse shot
Look what the other got
Shot reverse shot
Look what the other got

Drop the anchor make it stop
Edible digital clocks
Infinity figure eight
Figure out what you're not
Junk-an a po, cut your loss
Come to cut your corners off
You're the rock and I'm the paper
You're the scissors I'm the rock

Shot reverse shot
Look what the other got
Shot reverse shot
Look what the other got

Feel this storm go through my sail
Follow someone else's trail
Camera A camera B
In your home, on your tv
Hook me up, look in my eyes
Dilate do I surprise you?
Watch me blush, blink sink,
Trust in me so you don't have to think

Shot reverse shot
Look what the other got
Shot reverse shot
Look what the other got

Can you even feel what's real?
With such a shallow depth of field?

Kill the engine stop the car
Cut the lights and there you are
Stars so small
You're the king of them all
Stand tall, rack focus
Now you crawl back broken
Now the stars so vast
Heat wind break my heart

Shot reverse shot
Look what the other got
Shot reverse shot
Look what the other got

Feel this storm go through my sail
Follow someone else's trail
Can you even feel what's real?
With such a shallow depth of field

Shot reverse shot

Drop the anchor make it stop
Edible digital clocks
Infinity figure eight
Figure out what you're not
Junk-an a po, cut your loss
Come to cut your corners off
You're the rock and I'm the paper
You're the scissors I'm the rock

Never Fade

length: 4:03
It feels good to be the one, that you want
When all I want is you

It feels good to be the one, that you want
When all I want is you

When I first saw you come across the room
And then you saw me, then I knew what to do
I tried to play it cool and attached no strings
But by the end oft he day, I needed the whole thing

It feels good to be the one, that you want
When all I want is you

It feels good to be the one, that you want
When all I want is you

You see I knew right then, that this could last so long
I went home that night, I wrote my first lovesong
And as the days went by, I knew I had it made
Well you could try to pretend, your smile gave it away

It feels good to be the one, that you want
When all I want is you

And It feels good to be the one, that you want
When all I want is you

And now here we are, how could we ever know
I knew I loved you then and I'‘ve watched you grow
So it came to be, that I raised you and you raised me
We’re lucky that way, ‘cause our love can never fade

No our love can never fade yeah
Our love will never fade yeah
Our love can never fade yeah

It feels good to be the one that you want,
When all I want is you, can never fade yeah
[x2]

When all I want is you, can never fade
All I want is you, can never fade

When all I want is you…

Tape Deck

length: 3:22
From my tape deck there's a recklessness
Inflections of the world we want
All my friends, my rusty truck
We're just specks of love, directionless
Call this band just what we want
We can change the name from month to month
Four guitars and zero drums
We sounded folk but we wanted to be punk
In a world post punk

My friend had an old guitar
He took some lessons didn't get very far
An Ibanez with one k___ stuck
Said, "You can have that thing for fifty bucks"
Laura got a bass but it got no amp
Borrowed skills but never gave it back

Luke is just learning how to strum
But since he was the worst
We made him play the drums
Play the drums

You may find
In the palm
Of your hand
There's a flame
As it burns
As it climes
As it turns
To a blaze
Well this flame
It won't last
Here it comes
Hold it close
Cause this blaze
Can be fast
Set it free now there it goes

Luke's mom said that after school
We could rehearse in the living room
But that sure didn't last too long
Guess she didn't know we'd play Fugazi songs
We played these songs in the talent show
And all of the girls would be in the front row
But in the end we just chickened out
Because we can't sing
We can only shout
Only shhh

You may find
In the palm
Of your hand
There's a flame
As it burns
As it climes
As it turns
To a blaze
Well this flame
It won't last
Here it comes
Hold it close
Well this blaze
Will be fast
Set it free now there it goes

Don’t Believe a Thing I Say

length: 3:15

[Verse 1]
Mercury's in retrograde
Don't believe a thing I say
You know I don't believe that stuff
My mind's only made of dust

The echo always said get real
Mostly I just go by feel
Kick it first if it don't start
Don't need tools I got my heart

[Chorus]
Are we free or afraid
Of what we're told
Are we out of or under
Control

[Verse 2]
When Saturn returns I begin
To trust in patterns more than men
Or the stories that they tell
Even when they tell them well

The echo always sounded good
Until I finally understood
I only had to open the door
Now I don't trust the echo anymore

[Chorus]
Are we free or afraid
Of what we're told
Are we out of or under
Control

[Verse 3]
All these planets pulling me around
They pulled my face into a frown
Even though my minds made up
My mind's only made of dust
From stars and clouds and oceans all unseen
From stars and clouds and oceans all unseen

[Chorus]
Are we free or afraid
Of what we're told
Are we out of or under
Control

As I Was Saying

length: 3:46
As I was saying
Just before you left the room
Before I a__umed
That you might not come around

As I was saying
Just after I took my foot from
My mouth and put it back
On the ground

I don't want to disappoint you
I don't want to disappear
From here or now or you

This is worth saving
Because the sum of us is more than us
If you add us up
Then subtract my lack of sleep

My mind feels crazy
When all these thoughts come rushing in
Should I be trusting them
Or only let them be?

I don't want to disappoint you
I don't want to disappear
From here or now or you

Is it just a matter of time?
Or does it even matter at all?
Because even if this story should fall
From the sky to the see
If I should fall
Would you fall down with me?
Would you fall down with me?

Found my foundation
It was underneath me all alone
On this path I'm on,
Now I never walk alone

I've been erasing
Rewrote the second half like this
So my protagonist
Might find his way back home

I don't want to disappoint you
I don't want to disappear
From here or now or you
Not from here or now or you

You Remind Me of You

length: 2:25
Well your mama made your pretty
And your mama made you sweet
Your daddy gave you daydreams
And more cushion in your seat
Your mama gave you those windows
To your beautiful soul
Your daddy got more love for you
Then you could ever know

You remind me of you
Yes you do now
You remind me of you
Yes you do

Well your mama made a promise
That your daddy's gonna keep
Forever's how long
Your mama's going to love your
Daddy made you messy
And your mama made you neat
Forever's how long your daddy's gonna love your
Mama made a clone
So she won't be alone
When the boys and me are getting
So out of control

You remind me of you
Yes you do now
You remind me of you
Yes you do

When you cry when you cry
Well your mama's gonna dry your eyes
When you cry when you cry
Well your mama's gonna dry your eyes
And your daddy's sure gonna try
But only mama's gonna dry your eyes
But your daddy's sure gonna try

Radiate

length: 4:16
You walk into the world you make
You lose yourself but you find your way
I'm gonna watch you
Radiate, radiate, radiate, oh, oh, radiate
You turn so slow I know it's hard to wait
Take your time, sun is yours to take
I'm gonna watch you
Radiate, radiate, radiate, radiate

These rocks they hold heat
Pools of water cool your feet
As you walk you believe
Every part of the dream

I see you lost in what you create
All of time in this one single day
You take it and you
Radiate, radiate, radiate, radiate

Follow your hands
As they build as they shape,
As they follow your mind
And rose like a wave
Take it and you radiate
Radiate, gonna watch you radiate, radiate

All these rocks they hold heat
Pools of water cool your feet
As you walk you believe
In every part of the dream

Ones and Zeros

length: 4:28
There's a black hole pulling me in
I slowly bend till I see the back of my own sins
I stole my soul from myself now I wonder

Wonder - is there somebody with a perfect plan
That goes boom when it's stamped and we could understand
How the gods of old used to clap their hands to make thunder

So we're clapping and we're laughing like it was so absurd
In the future we'll be laughing at who we were right now
As man plays god with the land that he plunders

To the one unknown no one can know nor see
That's resistant to greed
If we listen to time after time, time can never go under

There's this vine trying to climb
Through the window into my life
I don't mind
I don't mind
I don't mind
There's this wine trying to find
Its way from the bottle into my mind
In my mind
In my mind
In my mind

And so this vine is trying to climb
Through the window into my life
To bring me symmetry
And memories of a backlit breeze
Back into a dream on the ground
Looking up at the sun coming down

Into a world of boys and girls
Are holding handheld devices
While they're eating and they're sleeping
And they're dreaming of the prices
We'll be paying down the line
When the ice melts maybe it will turn to wine

And all the greatest of the heroes started jumping from the books
They started wearing ones and zeros
Looking more and more like crooks
They stole the sunlight from the future
Took a sip, drained half the glass, and put it back

And a lot of people like to have a feast
Not so many could stomach the killing
Lot of traffic on the streets, so who's really doing all the drilling
Keep on filling what can never be full
My imagination has got a hold on me

There's this vine trying to climb
Through the window into my life
I don't mind
I don't mind
I don't mind
There's this wine trying to find
Its way from the bottle into my mind
In my mind
In my mind
In my mind

Change

length: 3:15
Just when you were getting used to this place
You were getting used to these bones
You were getting used to the changes
Well the change won't leave you alone

You finally caught up with the pace
The tough just might have got going
You thought you could trust all the faces
Well they're only on one side of the coin

All these changes
Different stages
Turning page after page after page
It gets stranger day by day

Set your eyes straight up ahead
Don't look down when you cross
And pay no mind to time it's a punch line
The joke is on all of us

All these changes
Different stages
Turning page after page after page
It gets stranger day by day

Home

length: 3:02
composer: Jack Johnson
I gotta get home there's a garden to tend
There's fruit on the ground and the birds have all moved back into my attic, whistling static
When the young learn to fly I will patch all the holes up again

well I can't believe that my lime tree is dead
I thought it was sleeping
I guess it got fed up with not being fed
And I would be too I need food in my belly and hope that my time isn't soon

so I, try, to understand, what I can't hold in my hand, and where ever we are, home is there too
And if you, could try to find it too, cause this place is overgrown into with works in bloom
Home is wherever we are, if there's love there too

in the back of our house there's a trail that won't end
We were walking so far that it grew back in
There's no trail at all,only grass growing tall
Get out my machete and battle with time once again
But I'm bout to loose because I'll be damned if time don't win

I gotta get home theirs a garden to tend, all the seeds from the fruit buried again
There own family trees teach them thank you and please as they spread their own roots they watch Their young fruit grow again
And this old trail will lead me right back to where it begins

So I, try to understand, what I can't hold in my hand
And whatever I find, I'll find my way back to you
And if you could try to find it too, cause this place is overgrown with works in bloom
Home is wherever we are if there is love there too
