BikeBoy29 Repeat played New York as the song of a summer that was all screwed up by you know what. But this song just overflows with warmth and you can't help but smile. Thanks JW, great album. Favorite track: New York.

jwyattwoodall 10/10! JW Francis's music is so original and beautiful. This album is a complete rollercoaster of emotion that fills me with such joy. I look forward to so much more music in the future! Favorite track: Loving Nobody.

theoriginal_jh Francis' first album is a great compilation of his singles, plus intros and some really catchy and melodic new tracks. The vinyl is pretty sick too. Favorite track: All There.

Is that the one you call on your walk home? Is that the one you loved before you came here? Is that the one who kept it all together before you left town? Is that me? Two people in the city Only one is from the city Soaking all the lights up And all of the excitement I can’t believe we made it When we really haven’t made it We just want to hear the stories And be apart of something I call you every single week So we can have some time to speak About the things that are going right And what tomorrow’s looking like I know she only wants me to Be happy and include her too I call you every single week So we can have some time to speak I wanna hear about your life You only wanna hear about mine The stories that you want to hear Like hanging from a chandelier Don’t tell us about each other none I need you here to have real fun I love you more than I thought x4 I love you more than I thought I could

Lofi 02:30
Hi I’ve been feeling tongue-tied Counting every piece of my heart Wishing having fun was an art Bye All the games that give you a name You always have to name what you make And naming is the easiest game Be good To me I know I’m quick to forget Be good To me I know I’m quick to forget Be good To you I know you’re quick to forget Bye Feelings from the low side I know that you’re piece of my heart I know that love will tear us apart

Good Time 03:07
Good time to let it go Before it all begins to show Good time to get it right I want to get it right Good time to let it ride Before it eats you up inside Good time to let it... Good time to let it It’s more than a feelin’ That somethin’ ain’t right It’s more than a feelin’ That we’ll be all right I don’t trust my feelings But we’ll be all right If we keep on feelin Our way towards the light Good time to be a friend Before it all begins to end Good time to see it through I wanna see it through It’s more than a feelin’ That somethin’ ain’t right I don’t trust my feelings So we’ll be all right
5.
All There 03:18
We could stay awake and often times we’d see the day But I’m too stuck in a haze Apologies I’m here to see if she could just appear And not have me be here Sincerely I hope you think about The time that we went out But really Do you wanna go out again I won’t be all there I won’t be all there
6.
I Told You 02:47
I told you everything I wanted I told you everything I needed And you Youuuu You told me I could be your best friend I only want to be the best friend That I can be to everyone I know I need more old friends more real wisdom Oh to be young Bored and freedom x6 You made me into someone I could learn to love
7.
Everything 02:07
I want to tell you everything But nothing ever comes to mind In the back of your car Or in the back of my mind Wanna see what we can figure out On our own I know you don’t like to be alone Wanna spend the weekend out of of the city And walk around I know you And I want to tell you everything But nothing ever comes to mind In the back of your car Or in the back of my mind Everytime I dream I see my friends, Memories, it’s raining, I feel like walking Everytime you call I hear your voice You’re alone, I know you And I want to tell you everything But nothing ever comes to mind In the back of your car Or in the back of my mind

New York 02:58
I’ll sleep when dead I go, I go, I go, I go, I go x 2 I’m losing life at least I’m here it’s real I’m real I’ll sleep when dead I go, I go, I go, I go, I go The best me The worst me Am I Am I just my dreams, am I just my dreams Amnesia, insomnia I was with ya, I was with ya, I was with ya, I was with ya In the fall, ambition calls You write your story on your skin Mine’s in my head We could co-direct, we could co-direct, we could co-direct, we could I feel it in myself I feel it in myself And it won’t be long No it won’t be long away AAAAHHHHH AAAAAHHHH

I don’t where it all began Two lovers maybe holding hands I don’t know if you’d understand, loving Nobody She is everyone I know And even all the ones I don’t She reads all of my thoughts and knows I love nobody Nobody Nobody Nobody Nobody Loving keeps you all brand new But everyday I’m more like you I don’t know if I’m Loving nobody Loving is a simple thing It’s letting go of all the pain Nobody ever feels the same After love comes through Nobody Nobody Nobody Nobody

Gold 03:39
Every morning I wake up Every morning I see your face EVERY morning I wake up Every morning I see your smile Stay for a while Every day I feel grateful Every day I feel more like youu Every day I feel grateful Every day I feel more like youuu What can I do Stay for a while In my head always getting older Wonder why I never think about her I keep it gold I’m keep it gold I keep it gold Keeping it gold Here we go I’m walking alone Music’s going And I feel at home I’m keeping it gold I’m keeping it gold I’m keeping it gold In my head I see myself And all things I want to change Keepin it gold Remember that’s your soul I’m Keeping it gold I’m keeping it gold Here we are alaways getting older Trying hard to not think about it Keep it gold I’m keeping it gold Keeping it gold Keep it gold

I was thinking about what I want I was thinking about where I wanna go And I was thinking about who I wanna be So I pulled out my phone And I called my mom and everyone I wanna be And I told them I wanna be someone else But I’ve never wanted to be anybody but me And you’ve gotta think about what you’ve learned What you’ve learned is love is the key What you’ve learned is love is the key I’m down whatever x4 Somebody else Somebody else I feel a need to love I feel a need to be loved And I feel a need to make myself yours And I feel a need to make myself mine So I feel as much as I can And I feel as close as I can To living a story that makes me feel me And giving you the space to live a story that makes you feel you
