Track Name: Little Things
Take a bite of that pineapple
reflect and tell me how it tastes
it only cost about four dollars
you wipe your mouth and say "that's great"

Now take your bike out of the closet
it's been waiting there for months
fill the tires with compressed air
consider inflating your lungs

some complain about mondays
some complain about the mundane
but you and I
try to find
the joy in the little things

"hey Doug, I was wondering, could you give us some examples of some inspiration in everyday life"

Uh yeah. Things like:

The ladybug who relieves itself on your jeans
The northern lights that shine so bright through poplar trees
The summer sun, when noon is high, a gentle breeze, it whispers...

Now take a walk with me in the valley
we'll watch the river run away
you reach for my hand and say "I like this"
and I reply "yeah, I guess it's okay"

And some complain about mondays
some complain about the mundane
but you and I
try to find
the joy in the little things

the little things
Track Name: Tattoo
The heart is the part of the body
that you cannot tattoo
but I have a fear that mine
has been marked by you.

If I got a religious symbol
tattooed on my back
would it be sacrilegious
if I itched and scratched?

So if you want to know why
I'll never get a tattoo (it's because)
I've been saving every inch of my body
for you

Now I've seen some ink
that looks wonderful
but I'd never let it define
the individual.

For if it didn't turn out well
that's the way life goes;
even the sharpest thorn
is still part of a rose

So if you want to know why
I'll never get a tattoo (it's because)
I've been saving every inch of my body
for you.
Track Name: Snow Bank
I fell asleep in a snow bank
that night you pulled me out alive.

Do you remember that fateful New Year’s Eve,
It was the first time that we kissed, if you believe
it anymore, I just don’t know…

"Yes I do remember, but I had kissed before,
You were attractive to me then, but no longer anymore
Oh, please don’t go…"

No, I understand, you see me as a friend,
Although I saw a little more,
than I should have in the end, and now we’re…

"…Forgetting all about that, many years have passed,
You’ve kissed many girls since then; I’ve got a boyfriend that’ll last, I think…"

I fell asleep in a snow bank.
That night you pulled me out alive.

We’re better off this way, letting the past remain the past
Besides, you’re not the one for me;
you’ve got such a dark side, you know…

"You yourself have many flaws, your not quite so pristine,
You were so unconfident with the lights out, so you ran away from me, oh"

I fell asleep in a snow bank
That night you pulled me out alive.
I fell asleep in a snow bank
That night alone I could have died.

That night alone...
