. . .


Something always brings me back to you.
It never takes too long.
No matter what I say or do I'll still feel you here 'til the moment I'm gone.

You hold me without touch.
You keep me without chains.
I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love and not feel your rain.

[CHORUS]
Set me free, leave me be. I don't want to fall another moment into your gravity.
Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I'm supposed to be.
But you're on to me and all over me.

You loved me 'cause I'm fragile.
When I thought that I was strong.
But you touch me for a little while and all my fragile strength is gone.

[CHORUS]

I live here on my knees as I try to make you see that you're everything I think I need here on
The ground.
But you're neither friend nor foe though I can't seem to let you go.
The one thing that I still know is that you're keeping me down

. . .


Silly me, look what I did again.
I found what I want is what I cannot have
I didn’t mean to be so predictable,
But I blame it all on who made you irresistible

And it isn’t something I need 'til you tell me I can’t
Why wear my heart on my sleeve when it looks so good in your hand.

My heart breaks in a heart beat
And you storm me when you come and go
The taste of something so sweet should have
Warned me 'bout the undertow.
Oh, I couldn’t find a better man to let me go.

Little girl, I don’t know why you stay.
If I had a feather for every time daddy said that I could fly away.
Old habits are so hard to break
It’d be a shame to stop now that I’ve started to make really good mistakes.

And I don’t know why I must ask for the forbidden fruit.
I saw the snake in the grass, but I had bitten too soon.

My heart breaks in a heart beat
And you storm me when you come and go
The taste of something so sweet should have
Warned me 'bout the undertow.
Oh, I couldn’t find a better man to let me go.

I should have seen you coming in
Should recognize the signs a wave’s gonna break
Now, I’ve given in, why fight it when
I’m resigned to simply live in your wake.
Your wake

My heart breaks in a heart beat
And you storm me when you come and go
The taste of something so sweet should have
Warned me 'bout the undertow.
Oh, I couldn’t find a better man to let me go.

. . .


We met on a rainy evening in the summertime
Don't think I need to tell you more
I needed a raise I worked so hard for this love of mine
Still I got nothing to show for it.

Tongue tied and twisted, go on baby and go to my head.

Here's a simplification of everything we're going though
You plus me is bad news
But you're a lovely creation and I like to think that I am too
But my friend said I look better without you.

Tongue tied and twisted, go on baby and go to my head.

Babe, baby believe me
If I stay it ain't gonna be easy
Okay we'll do it your way
But this is the last time
You'll hear the beautiful sound of love coming down
Love on the rocks.

You love the chase but hate me for the runaround
We both just tired of the whole thing.
You tell me what you want you need you know you have to have
And I just pretend I'm listening

Too tired this time to deal with old suits you wear with your ties that won't bind.

Babe, baby believe me
If I stay it ain't gonna be easy
Okay we'll do it your way
But this is the last time
You'll hear the beautiful sound of love coming down
Love on the rocks.

Hot as hell cold as ice sip it slow cause it's so nice
Dulls my senses drives my pain but I do it again
Burns a bit to the touch dangerous if it's too much
If this bottle could talk
Love on the rocks

Babe, baby believe me
If I stay it ain't gonna be easy
Okay we'll do it your way
But this is the last time
You'll hear the beautiful sound of love coming down
Love on the rocks.

. . .


Bound for the Blessing
You wouldn't see it coming
I keep you guessing
Watch while you come undone.

You were an island that no one would dare to tread upon.
I came in like the wise men, and asked you to take my gift of love.

CHORUS
Hold me responsible. It's all my fault.
I want you to hold me any way you can.
Hold me accountable. It's all my fault.
I want you to hold me any way you can.

Careful confessions
Can't scare you with my crime
I learned my lesson
Love you a little at a time.

But I'm losing my patience, getting acquainted with the edge.
I'm ready and waiting. Happy to stand convicted.

CHORUS
Hold me responsible. It's all my fault.
I want you to hold me any way you can.
Hold me accountable. It's all my fault.
I want you to hold me any way you can.

I can't change you when you won't change yourself.
But I see you slowly becoming someone else.
I can't blame you for the strength you lack.
Scared to give what you may not get back.

CHORUS
Hold me responsible. It's all my fault.
I want you to hold me any way you can.
Hold me accountable. It's all my fault.
I want you to hold me any way you can.

. . .


Just about the time the shadows call
I undress my mind and dare you to follow
Paint a portrait of my mystery
Only close my eyes and you are here with me
A nameless face to think I see
To sit and watch the waves with me till they're gone
A heart I'd swear I'd recognize is made out of
My own devices....
Could I be wrong?

[CHORUS]
The time that I've taken
I pray is not wasted
Have I already tasted my piece of one sweet love?

Sleepless nights you creep inside of me
Paint your shadows on the breath that we share
You take more than just my sanity
You take my reason not to care.
No ordinary wings I'll need
The sky itself will carry me back to you
The things I dream that I can do I'll open up
The moon for you
Just come down soon

[CHORUS]
The time that I've taken
I pray is not wasted
Have I already tasted my piece of one sweet love?
Ready and waiting for a heart worth the breaking
But I'd settle for an honest mistake in the name of
One sweet love.

Savor the sorrow to soften the pain sip on
The southern rain
As I do, I don't look don't touch don't do anything
But hope that there is a you.

The earth that is the space between,
I'd banish it from under me...to get to you.
Your unexpected love provides my solitary's
Suicide...oh I wish I knew

[CHORUS]
The time that I've taken
I pray is not wasted
Have I already tasted my piece of one sweet love?
Ready and waiting for a heart worth the breaking
But I'd settle for an honest mistake in the name of
One sweet love.

Cinderella's on her bedroom floor
She's got a
Crush on the guy at the liquor store
Cause Mr. Charming don't come home anymore
And she forgets why she came here
Sleeping Beauty's in a foul mood
For shame she says
None for you dear prince, i'm tired today
I'd rather sleep my whole life away than have you keep me from dreaming

Cause i don't care for you fairytales
You're so worried bout the maiden though you know
She's only waiting on the next best thing

Snow White is doing dishes again cause
What else can you do
With seven itty-bitty men?
Sends them to bed and calls up a friend
Says will you meet me at midnight?
The tall blonde lets out a cry of despair says
Would have cut it myself if i knew men could climb hair
I'll have to find another tower somewhere and keep away from the windows

Cause i don't care for you fairytales
You're so worried bout the maiden though you know
She's only waiting on the next best thing

Once upon a time in a faraway kingdom
Man made up a story said that i should believe him
Go and tell your white knight that he's handsome in hindsight
But i don't want the next best thing
So i sing and hold my head down and i break these walls round me
Can't take no more of your fairytale love

Cause i don't care for you fairytales
You're so worried bout the maiden though you know
She's only waiting on the next best thing
I don't care
I don't care
Worry bout the maiden though you know
She's only waiting spent the whole life being graded on the sanctity of patience and a dumb
Appreciation
But the story needs some mending and a better happy ending
Cause i don't want the next best thing
No no i don't want the next best thing

. . .


I could use another cigarette
But don't worry daddy, I'm not addicted yet
One too many drinks tonight and I miss you
Like you were mine

All your stormy words have barely broken
And you sound like thunder though
You've barely spoken
Oh, it looks like rain tonight and thank God
'Cause a clear sky just wouldn't feel right.

[CHORUS]
He's taken and leaving
But I keep believing
That he's gonna come round soon
(He'll come round soon I know)
You may be my final match
'Cause I chase everything when you play
Throw and I play catch
It never took much to keep me satisfied
But all the bullshit you feed me you miss me
You need me
This hungry heart will not subside

[CHORUS]
He's taken and leaving
But I keep believing
That he's gonna come round soon
Until I see him again
I'm staying believing
That it won't be deceiving
When he's gonna come round

Well I may seem naive if I cry as you leave
Like I'm just one more tortured heart
These cracks that I show as I'm watching
You go aren't tearing me apart
I may seem naive if I cry as you leave
Like I'm just one more tortured heart
These cracks that I show as I'm watching
You go aren't tearing me apart

The angels said I'd smile today
Well who needs angels anyway?

[CHORUS]

. . .


I've been winding down the same road for days,
I've seen the coastline going both ways.
Some days are perfect, and some simply could not get worse.
Some days it's all worth it, and some days this life is nothing but a curse.

And I wonder who will break first…

CHORUS
I am small. I feel like no more than nothing at all.
But when I lose sight of daylight, and my darkness falls
I'll be strong. And if not now it won't be long
From when I lose sight of daylight
And my hands are weak and my soul is tired
Oh, I'll give my love from the inside out
From the inside out

Little spirit, now don't you desert me now
I know I don't always hear it, but you don't always speak so loud.
And I'm not willing to simply lay down my soul for this.
It may be all that I'm giving, oh but take my love for what it is.

CHORUS
I am small. I feel like no more than nothing at all.
But when I lose sight of daylight, and my darkness falls
I'll be strong. And if not now it won't be long
From when I lose sight of daylight
And my hands are weak and my soul is tired
Oh, I'll give my love from the inside out
From the inside out

Take your best shot. Here I stand heart in hand.
And fearless I'm not, but I am what I am.
I know what I'm not, and I know enough to know it's never
Gonna be much more than weather, you can't drive me away
When it's only rain.
It's only rain.
It's only rain.
It's only rain.

. . .


There's a harvest each saturday night
At the bars filled with perfume and hitching a ride
A place you can stand for one night and get gone
It's clear this conversation ain't' doing a thing
Cause these boys only listen to me when i sing
And i don't feel like singing tonight
All the same songs

Here in these deep city lights
Girl could get lost tonight
I'm finding every reason to be gone
Nothing here to hold on to
Could i hold you?

The situation's always the same
You got your wolves in their clothes whispering Hollywood's name
Stealing gold from the silver they see
But it's not me

Here in these deep city lights
Girl could get lost tonight
I'm finding every reason to be gone
There's nothing here to hold on to
Could i hold you?

Calling out somebody save me i feel like i'm fading away
Am i gone?
Calling out somebody save me i feel like i'm fading

In these deep city lights
Girl could get lost tonight
I'm finding every reason to be gone
There's nothing here to hold on to
Could i hold on to you?

. . .


I've been down, I've been out. I did it all on my own.
Seems growing up didn't take long.
Feel Strange I feel good. I feel better with you.
You've changed, you should. Cause I think I did too.

Made my mistakes, and did a few things right
But it will take what it will take, baby that's life
You cannot change what you do not own, everybody knows
But if you live deep and love strong you get pretty damn close

It moves fast and it scares me. I close my eyes, oh but I still see…

CHORUS
I'm fading in and out what are you supposed to do save me know
From all of this danger you don't know how and I'll find my way out
When I'm in the red listening to strangers inside my head
The darkening angels beneath the bed I still see everything you said,
Painted in Red

I shake and I smile, cause you said
Baby girl it may take a while, but take the good from the bad
And never minds are never sure so never leave them wanting more
What are you waiting for?
How you love is who you are.

I dive in and I sink in. And I find new colors to think in…

CHORUS
I'm fading in and out what are you supposed to do save me know
From all of this danger you don't know how and I'll find my way out
When I'm in the red listening to strangers inside my head
The darkening angels beneath the bed I still see everything you said,
Painted in Red

In the distance is a line defining where I've been the state I'm in
And ever since it began to slip from my two hands I've been
Taunting fires, touching wires, been believing liars, everything they said
Painted in Red

CHORUS
I'm fading in and out what are you supposed to do save me know
From all of this danger you don't know how and I'll find my way out
When I'm in the red listening to strangers inside my head
The darkening angels beneath the bed I still see everything you said,
Painted in Red

What are you gonna do? No way for you to save me.
What are you gonna do? Everything that you gave me is painted in Red.

He bends his breath around my name
And I am humbled
I feel small and plain
But his arms are angels by his side
You need not ask if they're open, just how wide

His lips are day
And his skin is night
Oh, and with our love we conjure up the twilight
His fingers are music to my soul
And I feel his song play everywhere I go

My love, my love is on his way
I can't wait to see the day
I thankfully lay me down
Oh, my love, my love is on his way
I'm waiting patiently
But if you see me now
My love, please hurry

He loves with rhythm
And paints with flame
He comes in pieces with no name
I won't need answers, I'll just know
Cause I've read the sonnets about his soul

He can be ordinary in the best ways
And still dance like a poet
Through every word he says

My love, my love is on his way
I can't wait to see the day I thankfully
Lay me down
My love, my love is on his way
I'm waiting patiently
But if you see me now
My love, please hurry

All that I never knew
Can you see me now
All that I never said
Can you see me now

He makes me crazy
He makes me cruel
Oh but I pray he makes me anything but a fool
Oh my love please hurry
