Track Name: The Ballad of Barcelona and Tel Aviv
Hey Barcelona, this is Tel Aviv
by way of Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee
In Chicago we made a mess
Cleaned it up in Las Vegas
Now you know how this goes
We're lovers while the river flows
Kissing where the delta meets the coast

Hey Barcelona, this is Tel Aviv
Missed you in Boston, see you in Raleigh
San Diego's stranger lips
Begged for one more southern kiss
Now you know how this goes
We're lovers while the river flows
Kissing where the delta meets the coast
Meet clandestine, talk in codes
Where we meet again nobody knows
Nobody

This is Barcelona calling Tel Aviv
I've been to Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee
I've walked the streets that held your fame
And Tel Aviv's a foreign name
Now you know how this goes
We're lovers while the river flows
Kissing where the delta meets the coast
Meet clandestine, talk in codes
Where we meet again nobody knows
Meet clandestine, talk in codes
Where we meet again nobody knows
Track Name: Your Ring Finger
I've been staring at your ring finger
Thinking 'bout them rules...I can't remember
Is it the left, or the right?
I heard that you left in the middle of the night
Moved in to wander around my head

I've been staring at your ring finger
A tan line on one, a ring on the other
Is it the left, or the right?
I heard that you left in the middle of the night
Moved in to wander around my head
Track Name: Richmond, Meet Richard
Richmond, meet Richard
Creative, part-time drinker
Prone to aspirational shopping
That leads to all of that Kale rotting
So, Richmond, guard your leafy greens
Keep a lookout, and I'll tell you when I leave

Richmond, meet Richard
A lover, and indie singer
Prone to pretty girls jaw dropping
Singing "Can't you hear me knocking?"
So, Richmond, guard your southern belles
'Cause I'm stealing hearts and running like hell

Oh, Richmond, there's nothing that warms my heart
Like a new day with a new chance at a fresh start

Richmond, I miss her
I should've tried to kiss her
We weren't anything to speak of
But I felt my heart open up
So, Richmond, love the change you've made
I'll carry it for all of my days

Oh, Richmond, there's nothing that breaks my heart
Like a new day with a new chance at a fresh start
Oh, Richmond, there's nothing that breaks my heart
Like a new day with a new chance at a fresh start
