Track Name: And I'll Watch Over You (demo)
If there's nothing I will be
just around for you and me
well I'm a little star remote anonymous
and without fear
and I'll watch over you

There you came of age in waters where you swam
places that you'll never ever go again but I'll for you
I'm a traveler now I'll hold you to the sky and give you life
and I'll watch over you

Look over head, there's a parachute coming through
waters burnt and streaked with light left on for you

And if no one hears your sound
through the walls and doors forever they'll surround
well I'll come in
me I've got no god and no way to relay these heavy sins
but I'll watch over you
yes I'll watch over you.
Track Name: Place For Me (rough version)
They told me just to grow and to learn and breathe
they told me to collect all that i could see
but i could never be them,
no i could never begin just to win

They told me to be strong when the winds would blow
they told me to look up from the ground below
but me i'll run away, find
another little sunshine

And I'll show when they set me free
that I'll row where the seas take me
and I know that I'll find a place for me

And I'll show when they set me free
that I'll row where the seas take me
and I know that I'll find a place for me.
