Track Name: Jalama Road
Jalama Road by: Kailey Stevens

I met you on a blue eyes big smile day
Nothing was stopping you or getting in your way
When you caught my eye and let me see
You were stopping my heart while you were turning the key

We both have our own songs to play
If they were made a duet they’d be better that way
I hang off every word you say, so darling sing for me
Love is always better that way, when it starts with a melody

So lets just dance by the sea with no one else around
Cause when its just you and me, I get lost in the absence of sound
Honey slow down, life’s a moment, make it last
Funny how a smile can change your day

I’ve got one right turn I need to take
A lonely Jalama Road paved with blind turns and bumpy stones
Feeling a little wild, I got fourteen miles to find my smile

So lets live in this moment and make it last
I can see it
Here we are now
Sitting on the beach
Cracks to T’s the ocean breeze
Get a little bit closer to me

But I’ve got one right turn I need to take
A lonely Jalama Road paved with blind turns and bumpy stones
There’s been too many wrongs its getting to late

Always tend to read between the lines
Over thinking it all till I loose my mind
Second guessing every move that I make

But I’ve got one right turn I need to take
A lonely Jalama Road paved with blind turns and bumpy stones
We’ll litter it with smiles all fourteen miles

Its time to go, we’ll take it slow
No destination, no place to be
I guess it’s just you and me
Track Name: Dreamer
Dreamer by: Kailey Stevens

Heartbroken
Dreams lost
But baby I’m still alright

He laughs and it’s so funny
Because he thinks he got the best of me
I guess this ain’t my destiny

Look into the eyes of a dreamer
A fragile heart might break
If you don’t keep her
So baby remember
Look before you fall-fall-fall fall again

Look into the eyes of a dreamer
See the sky and a good girl
You’ll want to keep her
So baby remember
Look before you fall-fall-fall fall again

Breath in young soul
You can keep moving with a hole in your heart
Even though he tore you apart

He laughs and it’s so funny
Because he thinks he got the best of me
I guess this ain’t my destiny

Look into the eyes of a dreamer
A fragile heart might break
If you don’t keep her
So baby remember
Look before you fall-fall-fall fall again

Look into the eyes of a dreamer
See the sky and a good girl
You’ll wanna keep her
So baby remember
Look before you fall-fall-fall fall again

A street smart smile on a small town girl
Is a dangerous thing in your naive fairy-tale world boy
Burn did you learn choices last forever
Your dreaming if you think you’ll ever end up with me
Track Name: Wish On A Firefly
Wish On A Firefly by: Kailey Stevens

She caught a drifting dream, put it in a jar.
She was barely fifteen, never got very far.
Made a wish on a Firefly, never knew how it worked.
She’d spend her whole life wishing if it didn’t hurt.

She took a bus into town, tried to get away.
She wrote a song, the lyrics were her escape.
And her thoughts were ablaze, with a golden glow.
Saying "Should I stay, or should I go?"

Cause in this big wide world, you’re not alone.
A million people want to steal your throne.
She was pushed down and kicked around, told it wasn't worth the fight Forgetting she needed to keep looking towards the light

Sat down one day, she was about to cry.
Gonna kiss her parents goodbye.
Gonna chase her dream, chase it all around.
Gonna chase it down, ‘til it’s finally found.

And she struggled with the mountain climb, trying to forget the lies. Saying, “Hold on, we'll make it out alive.”
Things might be hard but they'll turn out just fine.
Fearless she faced the wind, all through the night.

Braving the final stretch knowing she was going to be all right.
And when she reached the top, and saw the light.
Said a quiet prayer, to stay polite.
Wished on a Firefly, but it never felt rite.

And the years passed by, they were flying past.
And everything, seemed to come so fast.
I thought about tomorrow, and now it's yesterday.
My little firefly, carry my wish away.

Before she left the room, she sat down and bowed her head.
With the softest possible whisper she said.
Maybe I should stay; my time might come one day.
Its dreams like these that make me want to leave.

Higher than the satellites, faster than the speed of light.
Stay in my dreams tonight.
Made a wish on a firefly.
Everything's gonna be alright.
Track Name: Sandy Toes
Sandy Toes by: Kailey Stevens

These feelings that I’m feeling,
I can’t quite catch the note,
Of something so difficult
I’ll find the perfect melody,
That suits you and me,
Let the waves hit our feet,
We'll walk hand and hand down at the beach.

Cause its times like these,
That make me want to go out to sea,
Let the waves crash over me,
When it gets hard to breathe,
So leave your worries there, cause we don’t care,
Just catch a good wave and don’t hold back, relax.

Surf jam live in a van,
Listen to some music that moves your feet,
Everybody dance with me,
Leave your worries all down at the beach,
Let them drift away,
I think its safe to say,
It's all gonna be okay.

Let’s go to the seaside,
Wake up every morning,
To watch the sunrise,
Sandy toes and salty kisses,
We could make a thousand wishes,
About where we, hope to be,
But id rather be at the beach,
Soaking up the sun,
With salt in the air,
And sand in my hair.

Set your worries free,
Forget about them please,
Cause all you need is peace, love, happiness,
Lose sight of all the rest.
