Away (bonus track)
. . .


When I woke up I was 17
You kissed my lips in a bad bad dream
Showed me things aren't what they appear to be
Called me angel and set me free
You gave me life in the cold cold dark
But you ran away in the mornings spark
Made me think that reality
Is not where I want to be

I am what I am and
I am what I am afraid of
Oh what am I afraid of
I need a fearless love
Don't need to fear the end
If you can't hold me now
You will never hold me again
I want to live my life
Pursuing all my happiness
I want a fearless love
I won't settle for anything less

I've walked my path had worlds collide
I lost my way and I fooled my pride
This lover's ache wouldn't feel so strange
If I could only change

But I am what I am and
I am what I am afraid of
So what am I afraid of
I need a fearless love
Don't need to fear the end
If you can't hold me now
You will never hold me again
I want to live my life
Pursuing all my happiness
I want a fearless love
I won't settle for anything less

Now I'm not here to lay the blame
I understand when you hold a flame
Heads will shake heads will turn
And sometimes you just get burned

. . .


She's got her sweet children
She's got her home she's got some land
Her earthly possessions
She's got a ring upon her hand
She tried to be a good girl
She tried to make everything right
She tried to kill the voices
That haunt her each and every night

She looks up to heaven
And wonders why love is so cruel
She loves him won't hurt him
Can't stop the wanting of you

She married in high school
Oldest was well upon her way
But that wild night Chicago
It's left a mark she can't erase
A phase you'll just get over
That's what her friends have always said

You dip your toes in water
She's in way over her head

She looks up to heaven
And wonders why love is so cruel
She loves him won't hurt him
Can't stop the wanting of you

Keeping her desire paralyzed
She catches in the corner of her eyes
Tank top, smooth skin, soft lips, tanned thighs
How the hell's this ache ever gonna die
And we make our choices
Doing what wee think is good
We deny our own dreams
'Cause we think we've been told we should
We think we've been told we should

She looks up to heaven
And wonders why love is so cruel
She loves him won't hurt him
Can't stop the wanting of you

. . .


If you ask me I will say I'm fine
All pink like birthday girls and valentines
And then the stillness of the night reminds
That I don't like to be alone
My thoughts are race cars running 'round my head
They burst into flames and they crash into my bed
Until I fall into a dream instead
Where all my lovers turn to stone

And all I want is company
Someone to understand this misery
Send a reflection of myself to me
'Cause everybody needs some company

These times I'm living in just make no sense
Sometimes my face gets pushed against the fence
I want to scream out in my self-defense
But I don't want to be alone

And all I want is company
Someone to understand this misery
Send a reflection of myself to me
'Cause everybody needs some company

What is truth and what is fear
Will I find it under here
I know they're selling me a lie
But I'm first in line to buy
First in line to try

I find some sanity on the written page
Where life is worth more than a living wage
They say the battle's over now it's time to change
And I won't ever be alone

And all I want is company
Someone to understand this misery
Send a reflection of myself to me
'Cause everybody needs some company
I need some company
Company

Miss California what did I do wrong
It seems I've loved you
For just a little too long
You've gone and left me
For some preacher's way
Now you act like you never knew me
And you can't hear a word I say

Miss California did I get in your way
Did the neighbors warn you
What would happen some day
Like a love like mine
Was never good anyway
They said think about your reputation now
Before you get carried away

Don't you know what's good for me can be good for you
Don't you know what's good for me can be good for you
Don't you know what is good for you
Can be good for me too
Don't you know what's good for me can be good for you

Miss California was I a little too proud
I'm standing in the street now
And I'm screaming out loud
You try to shove me in your closet
With your skulls and your bones
I can be who I am you see
If I want to do it all alone

Yeah yeah yeah

Don't you know what's good for me can be good for you
Don't you know what is good for you
Can be good for me too
Don't you know what's good for me can be good for you

Your sweet seduction led me far from home
Your self-destruction gives me sticks and stones
Your propositions make me feel so cold
When the hand that's trying to hold me down
Is the one I'm trying to hold
I know the hand that's trying to hold me down
Is the one I'm trying to hold
I said the hand that's trying to force me back
Is the one that won't let me go

Miss California
Yeah yeah yeah
Miss California
Yeah yeah yeah
Miss California
Yeah yeah yeah
Miss California
Yeah yeah yeah

Ah huh

Yeah
You know what is good for me

. . .


Did you think I was leaving
My ticket was just one way
The angels I believed in
Were gonna carry me away
Did you think that I would simply
Give them my last breath
Well honey you've got me wrong
I'd never leave you for death
It's gonna take more than that to get rid of me
It's gonna take more than that to make me fade
They'll have to tie me up and drag me away
They'll have to shut my mouth and drag me away

There is no one I serve
I am not here to please
I will not be a hostage
To my own dis-ease

Oh Come on come on
Come on out and hold me
Out into the great sunlight
No power on earth can stop us
We'll both become one tonight

I have never been more sure of anything
I have never been more sure of what I am
They'll have to tie me up and drag me away
They'll have to shut my mouth and drag me away

There's no dark that can overcome a flame
There's no force that can drag me away
They could bring an army
Ten thousand men or more
Their mass weapons of destruction
Won't even up the score

Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on baby
They'll have to drag me away
Come on, come on, come on baby
They'll have to drag me away
They'll have to drag me away
They'll have to drag me away
They'll have to tie me up and drag me away
They'''ll have to shut my mouth and drag me away
There's no dark that can overcome a flame
There's no force that can drag me away

No force that can overcome a flame
There's no force that can drag me away

. . .


She came to this world on a cold night
Papa turned his head and said
I don't believe she's mine
Single momma raised her in a place where
You can look but never touch
Cause we don't have enough
Don't let your hopes get high
Cause girls like you can't fly

Oh the long nighs in the small room
With the big dreams
Oh Indiana
You're only dying here
And they don't understand you
It's a tough road but you start slow
And before you know it
You're not alone
Looking for a place called home anywhere
Oh Indiana

She tended bar in New York City
People turned their heads and said
Baby you sure look fine
They put her on TV and then they told her
You're gonna be a star
You can go so far
Let your hopes get high
Cause girls like you can fly

In the long nighs in the small room
With the big dreams
Oh Indiana
You're only dying here
And they don't understand you
It's a tough road but you start slow
And before you know it
You're not alone
Looking for a place called home anywhere
Oh Indiana

Those big dreams are flying machines
And they'll take you
Wherever you want to go
Sometimes you find that what's real is inside
You don't have to go away
To find your way home
Oh Indiana

She turned around and sshe topped running
She saw that fame was never an answer to her prayers
She found that answer in her children
When she takes them to a place
Where they can have so much
She lets their hopes get high
Cause anyone, anyone can fly

In the long nighs in the small room
With the big dreams
Oh Indiana
You're only dying here
And they don't understand you
It's a tough road but you start slow
And before you know it
You're not alone
Looking for a place called home anywhere
Oh Indiana

Oh she's going back
Oh oh oh

. . .


Nervous
They don't much care for you
No, they don't like your kind
the way you look, walk or the way you talk
the way you always speak your mind
But you wanna be my friend
You're not anything like them
You can show me things I've never seen
You say ooh child, what a waste if we never
took a taste of everything we find in between
Ooh you make me nervous
Ooh you make me wanna run away and hide
Oooh you make me nervous
When you look at me I just can't lie
Oooh you make m e nervous tonight
Feels so wrong and feels so right
Feels like insanity
I get back in strange hoping that I'll change
Waking in a sweat from a burning dream
Look at all my friends, I keep on pleasing them
Caught up in the chaos of their minds
Ooh child to feel I have
keeps me by me
keeps me bad
Pushing harder all the time
Ooh you make me nervous
Ooh you make me wanna run away and hide
Oooh you make me nervous
When you look at me I just can't lie
I wanna shoulder all the blame and
I wanna shoot out all the lights
I wanna call you names and start a fight
Because you make me nervous tonight
Heart pounds
hands wet
mouth dry
I shake
I scream
I cry
No eat
no sleep
all night
I build my lonely cell
with secrets I can't tell
Frozen in my face
Uh huh
Oooh you make me nervous tonight
You make me nervous
You make me nervous
You make me nervous
Ooh you make me wanna run away and hide
Oooh you make me nervous
When you look at me I just can't lie
I wanna shoulder all the blame
and I wanna shoot out all the lights
I wanna call you names and start a fight
Oh you make me nervous
Nervous, nervous
Ooh you make me nervous tonight

. . .


I grew up in silence
From silence I became my history
They fed me fear and violence
They hooked me up to this reality
Now I'm not cursing anyone
They only did what they had done to them
But if you want to know where I am now
Then just breathe in and let it out

When you are at the end of your rope
Come find me
Holding on to your last string of hope
Come find me
Open up your eyes
I'll show you what your worth
Don't you know it's you and me
In this heaven on earth

When I laid down my burden
The one where I had something I should prove
Then I found my power
The one where I'm the mountain I could move

So if you want to know where I am now
Then just breathe in and let it out

When you are at the end of your rope
Come find me
Holding on to your last string of hope
Come find me
Open up your eyes
I'll show you what your worth
Don't you know it's you and me
In this heaven on earth

Don't you know that you are golden
Don't you know that you are pure delight baby
It doesn't matter what they painted on you
You can wash it all away tonight

When you are at the end of your rope
Come find me
Holding on to your last string of hope
Come find me
Open up your eyes
I'll show you what your worth
Don't you know it's you and me
In this heaven on earth

. . .


We're dreaming from the bottom of the well
We're curled up in the corner of our cell
Freedom's just a story that we tell
I say give me liberty or give me hell
I know life is just a song
If I can get the world to sing along
Brothers and sisters

We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
The one's that we're waiting for
We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
The one's that we're waiting for

There are differences we cannot hide
Yet we all are one spirit deep inside
Finding out our past has been denied
Now we can tell our story and start to question why
Climbing out from under fear
We'll know what we're doing here
Brothers and sisters

We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
The one's that we're waiting for
We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
The one's that we're waiting for
We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
The one's that we're waiting for
We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
The one's that we're waiting for

Who built this pyramid
A hundred years ago
Cause we're trapped inside a grid
While they feed us what we need to know
The scientists keep telling me
That we are all what we agree
So I agree to let you be
Anyone you want to be

We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
The one's that we're waiting for
We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
The one's that we're waiting for
We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
The one's that we're waiting for
We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones

Every stranger you see is a part of you
Teaching we are the ones
Every stranger you see is a part of you
Teaching we are the ones
We are all there is
We are the all that is
And we can get through this
We are the ones
We are all there is
We are the all that is
We can get through this
We are the ones
The ones that we're waiting for
We are the ones we are the ones

I feel you
You feel me
I feel you
You feel me

We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
The one's that we're waiting for
We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
The one's that we're waiting for
We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
The one's that we're waiting for
We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
The one's that we're waiting for

I feel you
You feel me
I feel you
You feel me
I feel you
You feel me
I feel you
You feel me

. . .


I takes me so long to understand sometimes
Why it's so hard to understand sometimes
It takes me two or three times sometimes
To try to get it right sometimes
To get it right
I've got some coins in my pocket
I've got a colored TV
It's gotten so complicated now
What does it mean to be free

Only love is real
Everything is love
Everything you feel
That's what your world is made of

And when I took a good look around I see
My thoughts are coming back to me
So look around
We are in charge of our own dreams
We have more power than it seems
So look around
Come on now show me who you're lovin'
Then show me just who you hate
Tnen I can show you all our amgels yeah
That guard your heaven's gate

Only Love is real
Everything is love
Everthing you feel
That's what your world is made of

. . .


Welcome to the planet earth
Welcome to the heroes fall
This is a thing called birth
The forgetting you knew it all
This is called your first step
This is called your first time
This is called your first break

The one that locks your mind
The one where you thought that you died
The one where you screamed and you cried
I'm still waiting to be loved
I'm still hoping there's enough
A constant wanting to be loved
To be loved
To be loved
To be loved
Welcome to the race of rats
Welcome to eternal blame
The trick is to stay asleep
The key is to play the game
But don't let 'em see you cry
Cover the hole inside

Cuz I'm still waiting to be loved
I'm still hoping there's enough
The constant wanting to be loved
Welcome to the planet earth
Welcome to the heroes call
This is a thing called birth
C'mon remember you knew it all
There's no love from someone else
if I can't love myself
And I'm still waiting
To be loved
Loved
I'm still waiting
I'm still waiting
Oh
To be loved
To be loved
I'm still waiting
To be loved
To be loved
To be loved
I'm still waiting
I'm still waiting
If I can't love myself
If I can't love myself
I'm still waiting
Waiting
Still waiting
To be loved

. . .


When my soul crashed into my body
Falling into consciousness
That's when my mind began this illusion
Of taking it step after step
I looked into mother's eyes
I said tell me what I should believe
She drew me a room with a light and said
just turn it off when you leave

Slow, slow, this river is slow
We're all out here on our own
Row, row, gently we row
One day we'll find our way home
Step after step
they drew me a town
they drew me a fear and a need
They drew me a god and
they drew me some money
hiding the truth far from me
I asked the cool fire light
tell me, what I should believe
And they gave me a song
and they gave me a dance
And said sleep now your pain will relieve
Slow, slow, this river is slow
And we're all out here on our own
Row, row, gently we row
And one day we'll find our way home
I've stumbled and crawled
I've begged to know why
and I've been ashamed
when I've chosen to lie
In all of this darkness
I have searched for a light
to come and find me
And when I found me
I wrapped my arms round
my own daughter as she fell into her place and time
and as her mind creates her illusions
I won't complicate hers with mine
She looked into her mother's eyes
she said tell me what I should believe
And I drew her a door
and I drew her a key
and I said when you're ready you'll come and find me
and we'll walk out of here and tomorrow will be a new day
Slow, slow, this river is slow
And you are never out here on your own
Row, row, gently we row
Oh
And together we'll find our way
Slow, slow, this river is slow
Life is not what it seems
Row, row, gently we row

The truth is
It's only a dream
