Track Name: All I Need (ft. Levi Driskell)
She sneaks in my bedroom window
On summer nights when I can't sleep
We stay up watching Casablanca
And in the morning we hit the beach
She tells my friends that she knows Jesus
Said she saw him on TV
Painting pictures of a starry sky
It's hard to hate and still believe

She don't talk a lot
But what she says she's got
Is a heart full of loving and baby that's all I need
She blows kisses and
Paints wishes in the sand
She's got a heart full of loving and baby that's all I need

She likes my Stevie Wonder records
And my Transworld magazine
Shoelaces tied, but different colors
Says, "it's only cold in galaxies"
She loves the evenings in California
Watching the sun fall in the sea
If beauty came in shapes and sizes
I'd say she fits perfectly

She don't talk a lot
But what she says she's got
Is a heart full of loving and baby that's all I need
She blows kisses and
Paints wishes in the sand
She's got a heart full of loving and baby that's all I need

She say she gotta lotta nothin'
But you know nothin' can last
So she gotta keep a-movin'
And she gotta move it fast
She gotta reach a little, teach a little
Pass on all the love
Dropping to her knees and now she get with the above
She gotta belly-to-the-earth before she belly-to-the-sky
Get the dirt off of her shoulder before she gonna fly
It's a syncopated aspiration, she don't know why
She gotta keep a-movin' and keep the truth alive

Lyrics: Matt Daly
Track Name: Summertime Fling (ft. Levi Driskell)
Another early morning lying on the beach
The surf is low but never feels too out of reach
The sun is shining down, the trees dance with the air
As I think about the girl with the flower in her hair

I remember that summer like it's yesterday
I met you on the beach where we both said, "hey"
A ciara whose tiara is a smile so wide
You're the only girl who could turn my insides
Outside, sideways, and upside down
Gonna sing a new song about the love I found
So put your hands together when the weather is fine
We'll put our hands together, yeah yours in mine

And we'll sing about the love that summer brings
Another love for me to sing about
The love that summer brings
Just a summertime fling
And we'll laugh at all the photographs
Of summertimes now gone and past
And all the love that we lost in between
Just a summertime fling

We used to drive around late on Friday nights
Park down by the pier and watch the fading lights
Singing songs and hanging out with all our friends
Praying that the summertime would never end

I remember that summer but I wonder does she?
Ever spend her nights up thinking 'bout me?
Wondering if this is how it's meant to be
Or if things could've ended any differently
And the sand remembers every name you write
On the beach, laying out on a starry night
And if I could take it back, I would make you mine
If I could take it back to the summertime

And we'll sing about the love that summer brings
Another love for me to sing about
The love that summer brings
Just a summertime fling
And we'll laugh at all the photographs
Of summertimes now gone and past
And all the love that we lost in between
Just a summertime fling
