Dawn & Hawkes Austin, Texas

Track Name: Holler
Holler if you get tired
and I'll come for you

If you ever want me
I'll be waiting
If you ever need me
Baby let me know
When you get restless
with her loving
Come on back to me
She'll never know

Holler if you get tired
and I'll come for you
Holler if you get tired
and I'll come, come for you

If you ever wonder
if I've been watching
I saw it coming
from a mile away
A man gets used to
a certain taste on the menu
and she ain't serving up
what'll make you stay

Holler if you get tired
and I'll come for you
Holler if you get tired
and I'll come, come for you

A man of conviction
strong as metal and steel
can be pulled like a magnet
to the way a woman feels
If you need a reminder
and you're ready to go
I'll keep my engine running
she'll never know

Holler if you get tired
and I'll come for you
Holler if you get tired
and I'll come, come for you
Track Name: Polar Bears
There's no good answer here
when it's a question you can't bare
and I've searched everywhere
just to find you
We can see the steam
escaping to the trees
I want to jump right in
and fine myself again

But polar bears are
trying to drag me away from here
I just might let them
so we both can win

I can't see through the blur
for every twist and turn
there's a new thing that I learn
about you
My hands slide on this wheel
steering how I feel
I want to find a way
to keep it pointed straight

But polar bears are
trying to drag me away from here
I just might let them
so we both can win
Track Name: Quietly
Quietly, I watch your face
for the first sign of doubt
And often times what's on your mind
never leaves your mouth

I know I wasn't made for flying
so I don't even try
If leaving is the first sign of lying
open up your eyes
Even if in the end we're dying
we still want to say we tried
so I can feel alive

Here we are like we always are
waiting for the ball to drop
and in the corner larger than life
is everything you say you're not

I know I wasn't made for flying
so I don't even try
If leaving is the first sign of lying
open up your eyes
Even if in the end we're dying
we still want to say we tried
so I can feel alive
Track Name: Golden Heart
I see your confidence
and I know you're working so hard
Be sure to trust your instincts
don't be afraid of where you are
You know you're holding your golden open heart

I couldn't help myself when
I heard your news it made me cry
I know it's part of life but
I can't stand to see you say goodbye
I know you're holding your golden broken heart

Bright lights will guide you home
Keep you safe when you're feeling all alone
Lead you back to all you've ever know
Bright lights will guide you home

Your jar is full of fireflies
capture the spark behind their eyes
Drawn to the light from inside
they know you are the truest kind
They know you're holding your golden open
They know you're holding your golden open heart
Track Name: Ten Leap Years
I wanna love you for the next ten leap years of life
See every blue sky traveling far and wide
I wanna wake every morning to you by my side
I wanna love you for the next ten leap years of life

I wanna hold you like this in the crook of my arm
Always build you up and keep you safe from harm
I wanna show you how love is supposed to feel
I wanna hold you so you know our love sure is real

I wanna find you when you're feeling lost in this world
Bring you home and show you I'm your girl
Make you dinner and take you dancing to our favorite band
I wanna find you and remind you you're such a good man

Well I can play this here love song and know that each word is true
I'll always sing from my heart when I'm singing for you
One day I'd hum through my dentures if that's all I could do
and no rough note will throw me after all we've been through

I wanna love you for the next ten leap years of life
Like two Texas oak trees growing side by side
I wanna brave every storm and enjoy the ride
I wanna love you for the next ten leap years of life
I wanna love you for the next ten leap years of life
Track Name: A Catch
You can come home with me I won't tell anyone
We can just wait and see how you feel in the morning
Cause there is no confusion, this is not an illusion
You're a mess, but you're a catch to me

You don't have to say a word I can see it in your eyes
Don't you know the way that we work I could never say goodbye
Not to you, there's not confusion
I know this is not an illusion
You're a mess, but you're a catch to me

Oooooh oooooh oooooh
Oooooh oooooh oooooh

You're a mess, but you're a catch to me
to me, to me
