Track Name: Hello Ohio
Hello Ohio, how ya been
looking real good, like the last time I saw you
and it's been far too long
since I found my way back home
now I admit it's true, I think about you
only when I'm lonely
but more often than I'd like to
and these memories always in my mind
of all the things I've left I can't leave them behind

And this roadmap
didn't come with a compass
and I don't know north from south
chasing some kind of dream
and I wouldn't change a thing
but I can't be looking back now

Made my way east through Toledo
saw the ghost of you by the side of the road
and it said, how does your garden grow?
when you pulled up all your roots so long ago?
now I never made a promise I couldn't keep
and I might have sold my soul for a can of gasoline
but my garden grows just fine
how 'bout you keep yours and I'll look after mine

And this roadmap
didn't come with a compass
no I don't know north from south
chasing some kind of dream
but I wouldn't change a thing
and I can't be looking back now

Ohio, I'm just passing through
no you don't need to make up the bed in the extra room
and I know it's late, but I got things to do
Ohio, I'll be seeing you

Hello 3 a.m., here we are
chasing taillights down this highway in the dark
but I wouldn't have it any other way
why am I most at home in the places that I can't stay?

And this roadmap
didn't come with a compass
no I don't know north from south
chasing some kind of dream
and I wouldn't change a thing
but I can't be looking back now
I can't be looking back now
Track Name: Alright
For all the times I was less than perfect
and every person who would say I deserved it
for every moment I was all but convinced things were
never gonna get better
for every day they made me feel like a failure
and all the damage that would do to me later
the guilt it never leaves
but these thoughts aren't breaking me

I don't need a reason to feel this way
I'll put it back together, maybe not today
so don't say it’s alright
things ain’t always gonna be alright
and I don't believe there's a need for doubt
things are gonna happen, maybe not right now
so don't say it’s alright
things ain’t always gonna be alright

For all the years that I felt that I wasted
the realization that I cannot replace them
for every whispering voice in my head that
ever stopped me from trying
for every stupid thing I ever would say
for all the good it would have done me anyway
I say ain’t nothing I can do
so I wrote this song for you

[chorus]

There’s beauty in the breakdown
when you can build it back again
no there is no time to waste
thinking about what might have been
and they say do what you love
and they say love what you do
but don’t expect it to always come back
it don't come back to you

People on the street let me hear you say
it’s alright, it's alright
whatever it takes to make you feel that way
it’s alright
Track Name: Tell It To Me Straight
If I could
I would buy the moon
and wrap it up for you
in blue wrapping paper
if I could
I would catch the stars
and hang them in your room
in the form of a constellation
so then maybe you
you would be happy
to sit inside your room
with moon and the stars and me

so tell it to me straight
and don't hesitate
would you ever consider
loving a dreamer like me?
so tell it to me straight
and don't hesitate
would you ever consider
loving a dreamer like me?

If I could
I would write a book
a story about you
some intriguing adventure
and if I could
I would write myself
a character or two
to keep you safe from danger
so them maybe we
we would be happy
never growing old
in the pages of the best tale
ever told

so tell it to me straight
and don't hesitate
would you ever consider
loving a dreamer like me?
so tell it to me straight
and don't hesitate
would you ever consider
loving a dreamer like me?

Never let you fall
I would never let you fall
I would never let you fall

If I could
I'd give to you
anything you want
anything at all…

so tell it to me straight
and don't hesitate
would you ever consider
loving a dreamer like me?
so tell it to me straight
and don't hesitate
would you ever consider
loving a dreamer like me?
I'll say it again
don't want to pretend
would you ever consider
loving a dreamer like me?
