Sarah Oksiuta Astronaut Husband albums always become soundtracks for portions of my life because I have a lot of difficulty releasing the "repeat" function. And when I do I keep coming back. I want to share his music with everyone I know and yet I still want it all to myself, too. It all becomes personal. I come to know every note of every song. And some female vocals snuck into this one! She really makes the track "Clue" complete. Anyway, keep it coming, Alec! <3 You'll always have a fan in me! Favorite track: Listen.

Track Name: The Way Home
Do you know the way home?
Could I go with you?
My heart got lost along the way

Do you see the sunshine?
Could I call it you?
Our lives are tied up like a string
Where do we begin?
Afraid that it would sting
Track Name: Backbone
I know it
I need a backbone
I'll go and blow it
I need a backbone

I need a backbone in my life
I need a little flame in my eyes
I need a backbone to get by

C'mon and grow it
I need a backbone
Let go of my heart
I gotta move on

I need a backbone in my life
I need a little flame in my eyes
I need a backbone to get by
Track Name: Sea of Oceans
I wanna play
I wanna play the prisoner
Stuck in a shell
Whispering to a listener

Open your eyes
I got another notion
We live in a sea
We live in a sea of oceans

I wanna be
I wanna be the Listener
Holding the shell
Listening to a prisoner

Open my eyes
I had another notion
We're floating alone
In a sea of oceans
Track Name: Clue
Every time I see that look in her eyes
Is there something I could do?
I've been looking but it's too hard to find
Could I get another clue?

Yeah, if I had another clue

Little little little light in the cave
Doesn't help if I am blind
I don't really have a compass for this
Could I get some sort of sign?

Yeah, if I had another clue
I would know what to do
Track Name: Loser
I'm the boy who always loses
Count me out cuz life is bruisin'

People say just keep trying
Don't you know life's surprising

Hey, how are ya? I'll just keep lyin'
Aren't you glad another day is arisin'
Track Name: Curls
in the world
Gave it all
to a girl
I would twist
I would bend
If the dream
never ends

by a Swirl
from the curls
Never did
Someone else
played my hand

At the end
of the day
I go home
and I pray
For a dream
of the past
why does love
never last
Track Name: Runaway Star
Could she be an angel in disguise?
The moonlight's in her eyes

I'm sure it's love
I know it
I can feel it

Every time she runs away and hides
I feel it deep inside

I'm sure it's love
I believe it
I can see it
Track Name: Swing
I'll swing at another one
label me am I good enough
I'm down and only 24
might as well swing at a couple more


I missed at another one
nearly thought I was good enough
It's the joke that's coming true
Break me down into someone new

Track Name: Uh
I wanna be with you
Don't wanna be with you
I wanna be a you
Track Name: Waste
Every chance that I take
is a chance that I waste
Feels like love is a race
or maybe more like a chase than a race

I'll waste for you
for you
always for you

Every morning I wake
is a day that I waste
Love is losing its taste
I'm feeling out of place

I'll waste for you
for you
always for you
Track Name: Listen
What do you hear?
Track Name: Halfway
Lucina, Lucina
Let me know, have you seen her
I tried to please her
There's a war between her

A promise to meet me
halfway to Milwaukee
I'm a fool, clearly
She was born to deceive me

Lucina, Lucina
I'm scared, I don't hear ya
It's dark, I can't see ya
O' where is my Lucina
Track Name: Collection of You
Everything that I do
is all for you
One day you'll see
our affection is true
Why would I lie
I'll wait for you
My reflection is collecting
the pieces of you
