Tracklist

You and Your Heart

length: 3:13
vocal: Jack Johnson
mixer: Robert Carranza
engineer: Robert Carranza
writer: Jack Johnson

What you are and when you blame
Everyone, You broken king
Watch you change the frame or
Watch you when you take your aim
At the sum of everything

Chorus
But you and your heart
Shouldn't feel so far apart
You can choose what you take
Why you gotta break and make it feel so hard

You lay there in the street
Like broken glass reflecting pieces of the sun
But you're not the flame
You got the people passing by
Because you know what you don't like
It's just so easy, it's just so easy

Chorus
But you and your heart
Shouldn't feel so far apart
You can choose what you take
Why you gotta break and make it feel so hard
Oh and you and your heart
Shouldn't feel so far apart
You can choose what you take
Why you gotta break and make it feel so hard

You draw so many lines in the sand
Lost the fingernails on your hands
How you gonna scratch any backs?
Better hope the tide will take our lives away
Take all our lives and

Hope the tide will take our lives and
Hope the tide will take our lives away
Take all our lives away


To the Sea

Bring on your hunters
Let them bring their dogs
It's me that you wanted
I've been right here all along
Right here all along
You better bring your buckets
We've got some dreams to drain
I'll be at the bottom
I've been right here waiting so long
Just waiting so long
Dreams to drain
Put them in a cage
Unlock the pain
And I'll be here waiting
You fell asleep with the key
All your walls
Mean nothing to me
I know you'll come back
To set us free
Run my dear son
Until we get to the trees
And then keep on going all the way
We've got to get right down to the sea
We've got to get to the sea
Oh my dear son
We've got to get to the sea
But don't you touch the water
Don't you barely breathe
And if you see yourself
Looking back at you
You're going to have to leave
You're going to have to leave
I don't want you to go
But you've got to leave
Dreams to drain
Put them in a cage
Unlock the pain
And I'll be here waiting
You fell asleep with the key
All your walls
Mean nothing to me
I know you'll come back
You're going to set us free
I don't want you to go
But you've got to leave
You can always come to me
I'll give you what you need
Run my dear son
We've got to get to the sea

No Good With Faces

length: 3:32
vocal: Jack Johnson
mixer: Robert Carranza
engineer: Robert Carranza
writer: Jack Johnson
No good with faces
And I'm bad with names
Gave me directions
But it's all the same
I'm lost
I'm too tired to try
Street lamps are broken
Black the way I came
Who broke the moonlight
Watch it wax and wane
I'm lost
I'm too tired to try
Let's not get ahead of ourselves now
There's no need for rain
Its our own parade
Let's not be afraid of our reflections
Its not only you
You're looking at now
Road signs were stolen
Left here holding this flame
Who stole my patience
Who stole my way
I'm lost
I'm too tired to try
Let's not get ahead of ourselves now
There's no need for rain
Its our own parade
Let's not be afraid of our reflections
Its not only you
You're looking at now
Let's not get ahead of ourselves now
There's no need for rain
Its our own parade
Let's not be afraid of our reflections
Its not only you
You're looking at now
Who you looking at now
Who you looking at now
No good with faces
And I'm bad with names
Gave me directions
But it's all the same
I'm lost
I'm too tired to try

At or With Me

writer: Jack Johnson
Are they laughing at or with me?
Ah baby those are such great shoes.
And I think that I'm so happy now,
And I think this is a better you.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ooooh.
Are they laughing at or with me?
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ooooh.
Why can't we just say what we mean?

People are just trying to fit in,
But is there something telling you,
You can't trust anyone in this town?
Ah baby those are such great shoes
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ooooh.
Are they laughing at or with me?
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ooooh.
Why can't we just say what we mean?

Don't put your money where your mouth is baby.
We don't wanna see you choke.
Nobody's joking around here anymore.
Nobody's broken any high scores.
No dancing shoes have touched these dusty floors.
For such a long, long time,
For such a long, long time,
For such a long time.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ooooh
Are they laughing at or with me?
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ooooh
Why can't we just say what we mean?

Ooh, ooh, ooh, oooooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh [4x]

When I Look Up

length: 0:59
vocal: Jack Johnson
mixer: Robert Carranza
engineer: Robert Carranza
writer: Jack Johnson
When I look up at the stars as I walk in the night
Down the street by my house it feels good
When I look up at the stars as I walk in the night
Down the street by my house it feels good
The light from the moon is afraid of the ground
So it falls behind spaces and hides behind clouds
When I look up at the clouds as I move through the night
With the wind as I anekatips walk down the street
The light from the moon is afraid of the ground
So I step on the shadows of my own feet

From the Clouds

length: 3:06
vocal: Jack Johnson
mixer: Robert Carranza
engineer: Robert Carranza
writer: Jack Johnson
Oh, you're such a pretty thing, I'll take you and I'll make you all mine.

I will steal you from this patient world that'll chase us, it could never take you back.

[Chorus]
We could watch it from the clouds
We can't stop it anyhow, it's not ours.
We could watch it from the clouds
We can't stop it anyhow, it's not ours.
It's not ours.

And I know you know me well enough to know I'm lucky to have you.
But all this just the little things, the words that I should tell you all the time.
You're so sweet to me when you beat me in doubles solitaire.
You're so sweet to me in a world that's not always fair.

[Chorus]
We could watch it from the clouds
We can't stop it anyhow, it's not ours.
We could watch it from the clouds
We can't stop it anyhow, it's not ours.

More that you feel
More your little heart will ache.
Love's the only thing that carries on
It's the only thing this world can't take.
This love is ours.
This love is ours.
This love is oooohoohoohoohoohoohoohooh.
This love is oooohoohoohoohoohoohoohooh.

Oh you're such a pretty thing, I'll take you and I'll make you all mine.

My Little Girl

writer: Jack Johnson
Hey, little girl
You might not know this song
This another kind of song that you can sing along to but,
Hey, little girl
Maybe someday
At least that's what all the good people will say
Hey, little girl
Look what you've done

You've gone and stole my heart and made it your own
Stole my heart and made it your own

Hey, little girl
Black and white and right and wrong
Only live inside a song, I will sing to you
You don't ever have to feel lonely
You will never lose any tears
You don't have to feel any sadness
When you look back on the years
How can I look you in the eyes?
And tell you such big lies
The best I can do is try to show you
How to love with no fear
My little girl

You've gone and stole my heart and made it your own
You stole my heart and made it your own

I don’t want you to go
I don’t want you to go

But it’s time to turn your love, give it back
It’s time to turn your love, give it back
Give it back
Give it back

I don’t want you to know
Let’s not go to sleep tonight
It’s not that it goes too fast
It’s just that goes at all

Then it’s time to turn your love, give it back
It’s time to turn your love, give it back
It’s time to turn your love, give it back
Give it back, give it back, give it back
Give it back
Give it back

Why should I be sad when I’m just you
Why should I be sad baby I’m with you
Why should I be sad when Im just you
Why should I be sad baby I’m with,
Baby I’m with you
Baby I’m with you

It’s time to turn your love, give it back
It´s time to turn your love, give it back
It´s time to turn your love, give it back
Give it back, give it back, give it back
Give it back

Give it back, give it back, give it back
(repeat)

The Upsetter

length: 3:50
vocal: Jack Johnson
mixer: Robert Carranza
engineer: Robert Carranza
writer: Jack Johnson
Some will say
This place is wrong
These hands are fast
This face is long
Just stop upsetting yourself
Upsetting your thoughts
Upsetting this world
That you're standing on

These plans are torn
These feet are cold
This shield is worn
This peace was stolen
Stop upsetting yourself
Upsetting your thoughts
Upsetting this world
That you're standing on
These problems they breathe
Their fire is real
The coins that they keep
You cannot steal
Even when you're asleep
They'll be here still
Breathing out or in

Some will say this place is gone
These roads are steep
And much too long
These plans are cheap
My feet are cold
Cut the knot
These coins are golden
Some will say this place is gone
These roads are steep
And much too long
These plans are cheap
My feet are cold
Cut the knot
These coins are golden
Just stop upsetting yourself
Upsetting your thoughts
Upsetting this world
That you're standing on
These problems they breathe
Their fire is real
The coins that they keep
You cannot steal
Even when you're asleep
They'll be here still
Breathing out or in

Red Wine, Mistakes, Mythology

composer: Adam Topol, Merlo Podlewski, Zach Gill, Jack Johnson
lyricist: Zach Gill, Jack Johnson
Everybody is made of clay
That's what they used to say
Until the truth stepped on us all
Now everything that was big is small
We're just little crying robots
Program me
I wanna win the race
I wanna find the place
Where the king
Locked up the princess
Jump the fence
And drink a little bit of

Red wine, mistakes, apologies
Red wine, headaches, mythology

Now who is the king of the sky
Jupiter says oh me oh my oh why
Is the game always changing
I've been through some strangeness
what's the matter
Is the feast not fat enough
Up the ladder with your feet
Reaching with your hands
You can feel it and dream it
I know you want to believe it
Just steal it
Take a piece of the sun
And drink some

Red wine, mistakes, apologies
Red wine, headaches, mythology

Now everybody's in the play
At least that's what the script
Told me to say
It said:
Shadows cut across the hero's face
He falls from grace
Until a little bird sang:
The truth is never ending
We're just here pretending
Let's all laugh so that we don't cry
Let's all life our glasses up to the sky
For some

Red wine, mistakes, apologies
Red wine, headaches, mythology

Pictures of People Taking Pictures

Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking pictures

I pictured us at the end of time
Holding up a camera to our eyes
I took a picture of you took a picture of me
In the background of the picture
Was water running to the sea

So I pictured us standing there just
Just staying away from time
www.lyrics-celebrities.anekatips.com
Watching it like a river as it slowly washes by
Washes by!

And now
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking pictures
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking pictures

The feed back loop is closing in so tight
Surrounding ourselves with satellites

But I pictured us standing there
Just staying away from time anekatips
Just watching it like a river as it slowly washes by
Washes by!

And now
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking
Pictures of people taking pictures
(repeat)

I pictured us at the end of time
Taking pictures of nothing

Anything but the Truth

length: 2:54
vocal: Jack Johnson
mixer: Robert Carranza
engineer: Robert Carranza
writer: Jack Johnson
If they tell me that the bees
Don't make honey anymore
Then what am I supposed to tell you
And if they tell me that the ocean
Is tired of her shores
Then tell me
What am I supposed to tell you

When I can't tell you anything
But the truth

When I can't tell you anything
But the truth

What happens to an eagle's nest in a storm
How does the mama
Keep the baby warm
What if the wind
Is telling us that its time
And what if we're not ready to fly

I can't tell you anything
But the truth
I can't tell you anything
But the truth

Tree tops they touch the ground
In the morning walk with no sound
Hear no birds, hear no planes
Through the mud, feel the clay
Build it up, make it sing
Make it strong, give it wings

But I can't tell you anything
But the truth

But I can't tell you anything
But the truth

What is this place
Who am I
Why did we come here

What is this place
Who am I
Why did we come here

I don't know I don't know
But I don't know
That we're meant to know

I don't know I don't know
But I don't know
That we're meant to know

Only the Ocean

length: 3:40
vocal: Jack Johnson
After all this time after all these seasons
After your one decision to go to the water for reason
Now it's only the ocean and you
After all these lines will all be erased soon
They go out with the tide
Then come back with the waves
It's only the ocean and you

You don't want you don't wait
You don't love but you don't hate
You just roll over me and you pull me in

When this work is done and this coat is dry
When this world is too much, it will be
Only the ocean and me

When these sails go up, mountains fade away
Stars come out, I'm finally free
Now it's only the ocean and me

You don't want, you don't wait
You don't love, but you don't hate
You just roll over me and you pull me in
And you pull me in
You don't want, you don't wait
You don't love, but you don't hate
You just roll over me and you pull me in
And you pull me in
You just roll over me and you pull me in!

What You Thought You Need (live)

length: 4:16
composer: Jack Johnson
lyricist: Jack Johnson
Well I can't give you everything you want
But I could give you what you thought you need
A map to keep beneath your seat
You'll read to me in time I'll get you there
But fold it up so we don't find
Our way back soon nobody knows we're here

We can park the van and walk to town
Find the cheapest bottle of wine that we could find
And talk about the road behind
How getting lost is not a waste of time
Le Bois d' amour will take us home
In the moment we will sing as the forest sleeps

It's all for the sake of arriving with you

Well I will make the table into a bed
The candle is burning down it's time to rest
I can't take back things already gone
But I could give you promises for keeps
And I would only take them back
If they become your own and you give them to me

And it's all for the sake of arriving with you
Well it's all for the sake of arriving with you
We could make this into anything
We could make this into more than words we speak
This could make us into anything
It could make us grow and become what we'll be

How will we really know?
It's just like it feels
