Track Name: ice-cream truck
i live in a small neighborhood
on lavender lane
no lavender shade to be seen around here

my house used to be pink
but now its yellow
and now its yellow

i dont hear the icecream truck around here anymore
i dont hear the childrens songs
i dont see the children playing outiside anymore
anymore

everything feels so strange
everythings at a stand still
yet everythings different

i liked it better
when i had a dollar
i asked for a popsicle

i liked it better
when i had a dollar
i asked for a cone

i liked it better
when i had a dollar
i asked for a popsicle

i liked it better
when i had a dollar
and i asked for a cone
Track Name: banana split
i guess i turned out okay
i know that love doesn't always last
i'm just happy that your happy
yes know that i'm happy too
it's just that sometimes it hard to live life when your always split in 2

i don't remember when it happened
i didn't understand when i was young
but i know now that it was for the best
but sometimes i'm stressed
im not always who i want to be

but i don't blame you
it's okay
your in love now
i can say

i don't blame you
you've shaped my soul
your all i know
you deserve to be whole

all i know is your smiling now
that's all i want

oh mom just know

i love you more
Track Name: birthday cake
blow out the birthday candles
its another year
blow out the birthday candle
wish me luck dear

i dont know whats to come
i am so young
only 16
and i feel like i cant have fun

it's midnight
happy new year
watch the ball drop
if i was in new york i would cheer

no new years kiss
no christmas presents
no valentines with choclates
no luck on saint patricks

even holloween
was such a mess
that the devil would be upset

maybe next year
maybe next year
maybe next year
ill be something
ill be something
maybe next year
maybe next year
ill be something
Track Name: helado
we called her may
but i only met her once on vacation
inflatable dolls at the beach is all i remember

her hair so curly and wrinkles so fine eyes so kind
she raised dad for her life bought him helado waiting in line

she left and he felt she was well
an angel in the sky
that's what he said at the funeral
there was no need for him to cry

but i look back and think time is moving to quickly
what if mine leave me soon too
i'm scared time is moving too quickly

ill have pictures and memories
but i don't believe in ghosts
i'm scared they'll be gone before they know i owe them the most

i'm not scared of the ground
i'm scared of saying good bye
i'm not scared of the ground
i'm scared of saying good bye
Track Name: shaved ice
skin sweltering in the summer
skin as hot as the sun
i turn red and purple and blue
and i still don't think i'm as pretty as you

skin crackling like the pavement
i can feel it peeling off
i see it it crumbles and sticks to my sweat
and i wish it weren't mine

skin that i hate on my body
i wish i had some ice
to cool me down inside and out
of my rage and the case that holds it

skin sweltering in the summer
skin as hot as the sun
i turn red and purple and blue
and i still don't think i'm as pretty as you
Track Name: soft serve
all i want is a soft serve ice cream
all i want are those syrupy lips
if life gave me sprinkles they'd be pink and blue like the skies i wish for

all i want is well i don't know
maybe if i wiggled my toes
spin 3 times and crinkled my nose
maybe magic will happen maybe magic will happen

come with me into my tent
well do things you'd never imagine
as a little girl in her secret club
i made up a code and you have it

all i want is a soft serve ice cream
but this time a cherry on top
i'm walking through life now
but i want something else now
but again i don't know what
