Track Name: The Quad
I was on the outside
always looking inside
always from afar I would wonder about your life
and your set

But I'm too awkward
and I'm too shy
so opportunity passes me by
why, oh why?

I saw in the hallway
see me in the doorway
only for a moment
our eyes met 'till I looked away
or did they?

You didn't wave and
you didn't nod
I wonder
Did you see me that day on the Quad?

I used to dream you'd say:

Let's go to a play
to the park all day
movies, I don't care
just to have you there
I love you

Late night dancing's fine
pints, a toke, or wine
hot tubs, I don't care
I love you
Track Name: Never Going To Let You Go
Waking up
you hear the singing
of the sweetest melody
Coming from
outside your window
from two songbirds in a tree

It's meaning:
I love you so
I'm never gonna let you go
no, no, no, no, no

Open up
a letter from a lover
read upon the page
in the sweetest lines
the sentiments
that know no bounds or age

Their meaning:
I love you so
I'm never gonna let you go
no, no, no, no, no

I'm never gonna let you go...
