Lyrics

Friend

Written By: Travis Kidd

I’ve seen Summertime, so many times.
I’ve been playin’ all night, sleepin’ all day through the sunshine.
Livin’ like a gypsy, oh baby did you miss me?
I’ve been in and out, round and round like the summer breeze.

But you know, that you’re on my mind.
And you know, I’ll be with you tonight.

I’ll be you’re best friend, till the very end,
I’ll be you’re lover, not another.
Won’t be standin’ around, when it’s cold outside,
Cause this movie’s far from being over.
Like a raindrop, or a hurricane,
I can feel your love, you know it’s never the same.
Cause this little girl’s smile knows how to get wild,
and it sure looks like it’s gonna rain,
rainin’ down on me.

What's in those eyes, number one prize,
Got me thinking I’m doin’ it wrong, but I know that I’m right.
Never mind the game-show, all my love is gonna go,
Right through you’re sunshine and deep inside of you’re soul.

But you know, that you’re on my mind.
And you know, I’ll be with you tonight.

Anticipation

Written By: Travis Kidd

Chasing that dream can feel so hopeless.
Never undermine your power.
Unlock the senses in your mind,
and then you might feel the fire.
Soon you’ll discover the piercing effects,
of stimulus overload.
Disregard the fools advice,
the answer is what you hold.

With or without the strive to possess it,
remember what’s in store.
Eventually, you’ll get what you see,
just what did you come here for?

There’s a way to overcome,
what’s keeping you cold outside.
If you can find the keys that you need,
all that’s left is the ride.
Just think of the day, that you can think of the days,
of the struggle to find your obsession,
Then you can say it was worth the wait,
and the dismal ANTICIPATION.
