    Recorded live with the window open on an 80-degree Sunday in Boston. Listen carefully for the birds singing in the background :)

    Josh wrote this on a beach in Hawaii a couple years back, hence the name "Hilo." It was written with just a guitar and a voice in mind, so we kept it that way for this take. Hope you like it!

    I hung my hammock by low tide
    I picked a mango while I sun-dried
    Taste a breeze so sweet
    That it lulled me to sleep
    And it was no surprise at all

    Evening came about high tide
    Used a magazine to start the fire
    Not a being in sight
    Save the stars in the sky
    And it was no surprise at all

    All the bustlin' lands
    Can really drive a man away
    All them pretty little cities
    Make me dizzier everyday

    Drinking water from a folded palm
    The sky had ordered me a second round
    And all the tourists scattered wet
    In their newspaper hats
    And it was no surprise at all

    And money I never wanted it anyway
    It makes me laugh to hear them say
    That this path I choose is going
    Going nowhere
    Cause nowhere's exactly where I'd like to be

    Mango rotting in the midday sun
    Bleeding yellow in the gathering mud
    And all that dirty, rotten beauty somehow
    Got me to sing
    And it was no surprise at all
    And it was no surprise at all
    Yeah it was no surprise at all
