1   FREQUENCIES
I’ve never been quite as tough as them
I’ve been picking up frequencies
Just as long as my little heart could beat me down
Before I run off and drown in the stuff that never happened

The crazy thing about love
Is that it’s always good enough
And if you let it grow, then you know for sure
That it could hurt you more
But you’ve been hurt before
By all of the stuff that never happened

Follow your heart
Til it’s easy til it’s open
Long enough to feel a little bit broken
Til heaven has spoken

You got ahold of me before I got to be
The kind of person that I dreamed I’d be
The kind of person that would never ever hide away
When there’s so much to say about the things that matter

Follow your heart
Til it’s easy til it’s open
Long enough to feel a little bit broken
Til heaven has spoken

2   DRUG
Oh, you left me with a little of your love, your love
Oh, I’m gonna need some more, I need some more love, some more love
Oh, you left me in the middle of your love
Oh, and now I need some more you’re like a drug, a drug

Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to meet you
Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to meet you
Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to

Oh, I’m taking it to everywhere I go, I go
Oh, And now you need to know you need to know, to know
Oh, You kill me when you say you have to go, to go
Oh, Addicted to you baby even though my lord, oh my lord

Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to meet you
Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to meet you
Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to

3   WALK THROUGH WALLS
How do you know the world is round
When you're blissfully enchanted on the ground
How do you see a world outside
When you're surrounded by a picture in your mind
When I saw your eyes they stole my heart
And they told me I was living in the dark
And now I'm caught in a great divide
And I'm aching to be on the other side

But before you walk through walls
You will leave all this behind
Before you walk through walls
You will look it in the eye
Before you walk through walls
You will learn to say goodbye
If you let your guard down long enough to try

How do you know a flame is real
Out of all the fires this is one I feel
They happen so fast
The moments pass
And we're all waiting for the moments that will last
When I saw your eyes they stole my heart

Before you walk through walls
You will leave all this behind
Before you walk through walls
You will look it in the eye
Before you walk through walls
You will learn to say goodbye
If you let your guard down long enough to try

Before you walk through walls
You will leave all this behind
Before you walk through walls
You will look it in the eye
Before you walk through walls
You will learn to say goodbye
Before you walk through walls
You will look it in the eye
Before you walk through walls
You will learn to let it die
In the moment where the darkness needs the light

4   SUMMER
I remember the time you first held your hand in mine
We left our worries behind us
We got lost alright
And there’s no way to describe how a moment changes
Maybe the world would define us
But our hands were tied

Don’t let go of me
Don’t give up on me

We had our feet in the sand
With an ocean waiting
And I was tied to the land of summer fading
Will you lay down with me here
While the waters rise
Or will you follow my fear to the other side

Don’t give up on me
Don’t give up on me

5   SAY IT OUT LOUD
Say it out loud
We’re moving the world around
Careful you don’t look down
You might be the last one out
We’re here to stay
We won’t give our lives away
We know there’s a better way
The people will have their say
And they’ll say it out loud

You think it’s fun
Holding a loaded gun
Pointing it at the sun
Not fooling anyone
I’ll say it now
We’re starting a revolution
Against our own confusion
There will be no illusion
When we say it out loud

Say it out loud
Say it out loud
Say it out loud...

6   YOUR SIDE
We felt love so we made it
We felt hope so we braved it
We felt fear so we tamed it
We held on and we waited
From the fire to the fear to the fall
Heaven knows I’m on your side
From the first to the last through it all
Everywhere our worlds collide

Oh, Oh
We can’t hide from each other
We can hide from no one
Oh, Oh
Give our hearts to each other
Lift them up like we’re young

When we lived in the moment
We forgot all our shame
When we woke in the morning
We knew then we are the same
From the fire to the fear to the fall
Heaven knows I’m on your side
From the first to the last through it all
Everywhere our worlds collide

Oh, Oh
We can’t hide from each other
We can hide from no one
Oh, Oh
Give our hearts to each other
Lift them up like we’re young

I don’t want to hurt you
I just want to be your friend
Even though we draw our lines with very different ends
Do you believe me
Have I even earned your trust
To ask you for it now, would it ever be enough
With all the words to say
Surely we can find
A place to leave our past behind

Oh our worlds collide
When they can’t survive
On their own precious lies
Oh we make mistakes
Find what it takes
And make an honest try

Searching for an answer
Searching for a common ground
Searching for a place to stand
That doesn’t tear you down
Can you even see me
Would you look me in the eye
Or will it just remind you
We’re living in a great divide
Are you looking for a truth
Are you looking for a sign
Or are you looking for your own kind?

Oh our worlds collide
When they can’t survive
On their own precious lies
Oh we make mistakes
Find what it takes
And make an honest try

8   THICK AS THIEVES
Do you feel heaven
When the ache is strong
When the nets are left alone
Wonder what we'll find
As the cast is drifting

My love hold me to your side
My love just like the first time
Hold on, hold me through the mourning
Hold on, harder than I'm falling

Do you feel heaven
In late July
We'll never learn to say goodbye
The sand will dry
Now the sun is lifting

My love hold me to your side
My love just like the first time
Hold on, hold me through the mourning
Hold on, harder than I'm falling


All, all that I long for
All that I look for
All, all that I long for
All that I look for
My love

My love hold me to your side
My love just like the first time
Hold on, hold me through the mourning
Hold on, harder than I'm falling

9   HUMAN TOO
Look me in the eye
We’ve been here before
The start of the future
The end of a war
We lost where we came from
We found who we were
We fell out of space
And landed on earth

Ooh, tell me that you understand
Tell me that you’re human too
That all the magic
And all the tragic
Lives inside you too

If we looked up
If we looked in
If we let go
Of the shape that we’re in
Start with a stranger
Ask them their name
Forgive them their fortunes
Forgive them their pain

Ooh, tell me that you understand
Tell me that you’re human too
That all the magic
And all the tragic
Lives inside you too

We all breathe the same air that we breathe
We all seek the same love that we need

Ooh, tell me that you understand
Tell me that you’re human too
That all the magic
And all the tragic
Lives inside you too

All the weight you left behind you
Hiding in the space in my chest
You’re wide awake when I am sleeping
On the other side on the other side
Oh I pray that I will keep you
Got to keep you in my grasp
Because you broke me made me saved me
Never look back never look back never look back

Oh the way you shake my senses
Shaken from the first to the last
In the moments heaven sent us
Why can’t all of them last
I am open fallen broken since the moment you passed
I am searching aching taking
Never look back never look back never look back

I’m all the way to the water
I’m all the way to the fear
I’m all the way to the water
I’m all the way to the fear

You have broken my heart open
Left me on the edge of the land
It’s the furthest I have traveled from the palm of your hand
An unspoken deep devotion heaven and earth understand
Oh the moment I give in and never look back
Never look back never look back

I’m all the way to the water
I’m all the way to the fear
I’m all the way to the water
I’m all the way to the fear

11   FORGIVENESS
You were given long enough to move along
You said we’re living to forgive what may have come
As you were leaving
As I was grieving
I have loved you all my life
I ask forgiveness I ask forgiveness I ask forgiveness
For our last goodbye

I still need you no matter how much time has passed
I still feel you oh how I long to feel your grasp
Because I love you
Because you love me all my life
I ask forgiveness I ask forgiveness I ask forgiveness
For our last goodbye

12   PROUD
We should ask ourselves out loud
Are we really proud
Are we living with our hearts in the open
We should ask ourselves out loud
Are we really proud
Of the lines that we have chosen
Of the words we haven’t spoken
To repair what we have broken

We should ask ourselves out loud
Are we really proud
Are we building walls or bridges
Are we sharing our own riches

You couldn’t look away…

1   FREE MY MIND
My mind is like a heavy hand
Always making more of what really happened
A critical imagination always working overtime
Maybe this is what the world will see
A tiny little version of the tallest tree
An optical illusion of the human mind
Posing as a real life

I never had my mind made up before the bomb dropped
And if I ever do decide to take a chance oh
The part that keeps me holding on

It'll be my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes
Free my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes.

We like to watch the world go by
Paint a pretty picture with the perfect light
Build a happy home to live inside
Working ‘til the sunrise
But I haven't such a dream to keep
To spend another day counting sheep
Seven in a row will make a week
Enough to disappoint you

I never had my mind made up before the bomb dropped
And if I ever do decide to take a chance oh
The part that keeps me holding on

It'll be my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes
Free my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes.

Never had my mind made up
No I never had my mind made up
Oh no I never had my mind made up
Never had my mind made up….

It'll be my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes
Free my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes

Be my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes
Free my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes.

2   MAKE A NOISE
Look up you see the sky on fire
Look out the water’s getting higher now

Believe that you can change the world
Your dreams have been living in a code of silence
So let them out

Find your voice
Find your voice
Make a noise

You try to find the words you want to say
You might be looking much too far away
To recognize we’re all disguised

Find your voice
Find your voice
Make a noise

Oh we all were born before the war
But worlds collide
Look at all the people fighting for the same side
Oh we all were born before the war
But worlds collide
You can’t have the peace you’re looking for without a fight
Oh we all were born before the war
But worlds collide
If you see the world you want more, then make it right

(you see the sky on fire, the water’s getting higher)

Don’t run away run away
don’t run away
Don’t run away run away
don’t run away

3   WAY TO THE FUTURE
She could be easy to find you see
She writes the songs only for you to sing
She digs the words out of the sky
She leaves them there for you to find

The way that you love dear
The fate of the world you leave behind
A way to the future
Making a moment built to last
You want to love well now's your chance

You hear the beat over the radio
You see the scene
A satellite picture show
You take her words out of the sky
She left them there
For you to find

The way that you love dear
The fate of the world you leave behind
A way to the future
Making a moment built to last
You want to love well now's your chance…

We’re gonna get there real soon real soon
Hold your breath I bet that we will get there soon.

5   WASTING TIME
I didn’t know when I met you I’d upset you
I didn’t know I was taking both your eyes
Even the best intentions take us by surprise

How do you keep a secret, don’t repeat it
How do you push away without a shove
It’s easier wasting time than breaking hearts you love

Maybe a boat on the ocean will bring good fortune
Maybe a gust of wind will keep us out at sea
I’ll be hoping for the wind that sets you free

Fate is just matter choosing sides

It’s easier wasting time than breaking hearts you love
It’s easier wasting time than breaking hearts you love
It’s easier wasting time than breaking hearts you love
It’s easier wasting time than breaking hearts you love
It’s easier wasting time than breaking hearts you love
It’s easier wasting time than breaking hearts you love

I didn’t know when I met you I’d upset you
I didn’t know I was taking both your eyes
How do you live with a secret, don’t repeat it
I didn’t know I was taking both your eyes
Even the best intentions take us by surprise

6   MIDNIGHT SERENADE
Words from a thousand miles away
At a lonely time of day
Leave it up to night to quietly remind us
Time though it mostly slips away
Doesn't seem to mind the wait
It's a midnight serenade
Do you feel the same as I do

Close your eyes
Think of what you have beside you
Even I understand the reasons why you stay

Oh I am stuck in someone else’s shoes
An unfamiliar view
But I promise not to do the things they do
I would never make you choose
I have so much less to lose
There's a world between these words and how we use them

Close your eyes
Think of what you have beside you
Even I understand the reasons why you stay

Oh oh oh oh...

I hide behind the waterfall
I wait for you to drink
I sing so you might hear these words
But sadly so might she
She knows you disappear sometimes
But knows that you will stay
And so I end this story with
One last serenade

Close your eyes
Think of what you have beside you
Even I understand the reasons why you'll stay

7   OH MY DARLIN'
We used to paint puddles in the sky
Jump around on trampolines and never go inside
We’d wake up in the morning and decide
What we would do for the rest of our lives
But the rest of our lives came quickly

Oh my darlin’
Oh my dear
Times is hard without you here
Oh my darlin’
Oh my babe
How long will it take
To be carried away
To go back to the younger days

I wonder if you’re wondering outside
Still chasing with your fingers all the colors in the sky
I’m looking out my window for a clue
Leaving a sign and hoping it finds you
I’ll find you

Oh my darlin’
Oh my dear
Times is hard without you here
Oh my darlin’
Oh my babe
How long will it take
To be carried away
To go back to the younger days…

What if I wait and you don’t show
If I left you half just to keep me whole
What if I held my breath so long
Would you notice the silence had lasted so long
What if the closest I get to the moment is now

I have seen love come and go
Oh I watched it pass with my heart held close
There’s no easy way to know
If I’m looking back or I’m getting close
What if the closest I get to the moment is now

Love it has no guarantees
Which muse will lay its hands on me
We said the words we knocked on wood
And I’m still here waiting to see what could be
What if the closest I get to the moment is now

I know there’s a purpose
I know there’s an end
I know you are worth it
Will I rise again

And the water’s near

And I watch in fear
Will I watch you burning
You I love so dear

Out in the calm of the coldest air

But I can’t find the words I want

If you were gone in another life

Oh I’m afraid of the world I’m in


One day I will see heaven’s reach
I’ll find the one who left me sleeping
Every war was another seed
That could feed every soul in need
Oh I’m warn by the war in me

Somebody held my breath
Somebody saved me from the world you left
If you’re gonna cry my tears
If you’re gonna hold my breath
If you’re gonna let me see the sun you set

Soon we'll be sitting at the bottom
Making sense of all we've forgotten
My faith lies somewhere between daisies and pews
Making sense of all the good news

I might climb the highest peak
Disappear in another dream
Sit alone on a stone by the sea
Knowing and waiting
We are in love

Fire in my soul
Fire in my soul
When nights are cold

And when you do appear
You are my hope and my fear
Not by the land or the sea
But from the place that I breathe

Here I am again
Singing the same old tune
Holding everything as close as I can to you
If love is anywhere
Mine still belongs with you
But I’m holding it in my hand

She lays her head
Upon your shoulder
But all I see is the way that you hold her
You live in your house
With a beautiful view
And I live in an your apple tree

I am a songbird
Singing out your window
Telling stories in the shade
And I can’t fly away
I can’t fly away

Imagine me
Flying around the world
Or Italy on a terraced hill
No matter where life’s taking me
I may still be up in your apple tree

I am a songbird
Singing out your window
Telling stories in the shade
And I can’t fly away

No I can’t fly away

Have I ever seen such kindness
Such resigned delight all in one glance
Right when you pass me
I watch, you see
You smile, I breathe
Air in my chest

The sun left me so quickly
I am stuck under the moon
I want to belong to you

I pray no one will find you
I’ll stay right where I am
‘Til you come back
Don’t let me lose you
Before there’s a chance to begin

Suddenly light on my feet
With a sweet rearrange of the day
Everything’s changed now

One quick exchange
It’s not the same
Kind of goodbye
Gone with a sigh

The sun left me so quickly
I am stuck under the moon
I want to belong to you

I pray no one will find you
I’ll stay right where I am
‘Til you come back
Don’t let me lose you

Gonna toss you around
Gonna make you want everything you haven’t found

I’m saving up all that I have ‘til I’m dead

And never the same way

But oh if you don’t want me though
I’ll only want you more
I fall in love with hard to get
You know you’re just like me
A mystery with nothing more to see
A virtual reality

I’m in a love affair without a love song
I’m in the habit of having what I don’t want
I’m just a hologram
You can see but don’t touch me baby
Oh I bet you want me

I am taking up space I’m right out of place
I’m holding a half-hearted smile to your face
It’s pretty enough but watch out it fades away
Time is ticking so fast
Does anything last
Soon I will be just apart of your past
I’ll leave you with this
You hold on in blissful memories

Oh if you don’t want me though
I’ll only want you more
I fall in love with hard to get
You know you’re just like me
A mystery with nothing more to see
A virtual reality

I’m in a love affair without a love song
I’m in the habit of having what I don’t want
I’m just a hologram
You can see but don’t touch me baby
Oh I bet you want me now

Now that you can see
I’m not, not what you make of me

How the ocean let all the sailors come
They came over one by one if only just to see

I don’t know how happiness gets hidden in the wilderness

I don’t know how to find you when
All I’ve been is a lighted window
Waiting for the dark to make it’s way back into light

And you will hold me in your arms
And you will hold me in your arms

Maybe I’m just a pilgrim who is trying to make sense of you now
Pray the wind will take me where the space meets up with time
Where you will hold me in your arms

Everyone needs someone to touch them
Everyone needs someone to hold
So why’s it so damn hard to love when we’re alone

I’ve lived a lifetime telling stories
About the way we live and die
When love was born it was a mystery
I’m yet to find

And when I wake up in the morning
There is a twinkle in my eye
That maybe someday you will meet me
In the light

I’ll let you whisper
I’ll let you hold me
Do what you came to
You are the only
I will not cry out
I will not fight you
I’ll let you have me
All that you want to
I’ll give you sunsets
I’ll give you kisses
I’ll give you songs that
That no one else hears
It’s not enough love
Until you know me
Until you touch me
Until you hold me

You were in a dream I had
Doing dishes at the laundry mat
And then you smiled at me
You said lets hide and seek
I’m gonna count to three
Where did you go

One step forward two steps back
So funny I forgot to laugh
You lead me down the garden path
And I will follow
I will follow

I saw you on a downtown street
Eating peaches in an apple tree
You said take my hand
We’ll be a marching band
They’ll love us in Japan
Where did you go?

One step forward two steps back
So funny I forgot to laugh
You lead me down the garden path

When you’re weary
And haunted
And your life is not what you wanted
When you’re trying so hard to find it

When the lies speak the loudest
When your friends are starting to leave
When you’re broken by people like me

I hurt too, I hurt too

When an ocean sits right between us
There is no sign that we’ll ever cross
You should know now that I feel the loss

I hurt too, I hurt too

Even though you are drowning in valley’s of echoes
I believe there is peace in those hills up ahead
You will climb ‘til you find places you’ll never let go
And I will also be here praying just like I said

I hurt too, I hurt too

You could be my white night
And I could be your fairy tale
And you could come and save me
But that is not the end

I will wear will wear a white dress
You will paint a sunset
Life will be a love fest
That’s how it all begins

Say say, oh playmate
Come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three
Climb up my apple tree
Slide down my rainbow
Into my cellar door
And we’ll be jolly friends
Forever more

But the world can spin so madly
And love can hurt so badly
And stories end so sadly
But this is not the end

You still have my heartache
I still have your sweater
Things they will get better
Oh, but not today

Say say oh playmate
I cannot play with you
My dolly’s got the flu
Boo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo
Aint got no rainbow
Aint got no cellar door
But we’ll be jolly friends
Forever more

Say say, oh playmate
Come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three
Climb up my apple tree
Slide down my rainbow
Into my cellar door
And we’ll be jolly friends
Forever more

1   JACK AND JILL
She wore that dress like it was a Saturday
Pretty as a summer rose picked in the morning
He held her hand like she was a mystery
One he couldn’t quite believe
Was walking with him

They were
High up on a hill
With something to say
And daylight to kill
Time slips away
The way that it will

Round and around dancing round the question posed
Flip a coin and watch it go down into the wishing well
Two-step sunset there goes another day
Another chance to give away secrets they keep to themselves

They were
High up on a hill
With something to say
And daylight to kill
Time slips away
The way that it will

Darkness falls without a sound
They come tumbling
Tumbling after

2   SWEETER THAN THIS
Life is in boxes in back of our car
Driving around with our dreams in a jar
And it’s all right here

I’ll feed you ramen and you’ll braid my hair
Anything goes when you don’t even care
When you’re this far in love

If it gets any sweeter than this I don’t want to know
I don’t want to know

I want a garden and you want a coke
Living is simple when lovers are broke
You can fix anything with a kiss

If it gets any sweeter than this I don’t want to know
If it gets any sweeter than this I don’t want to know

You read your book baby I’ll float away
Taking a nap on your lap in the shade
I could hold your hand all day

If it gets any sweeter than this I don’t want to know…

3   UNTIL YOU TRY
You said it the perfect way
On your own and out loud
You said it the perfect way
You were strong and resound
They didn’t want to hear it
But it’s time

You’re living in your high hopes
And I know that you’re scared
Cause there is a hell below
Anytime you go there
And even the perfect rhyme is a hell of a find

You won’t know until you try
You won’t know until you try

You will be looking back
On the days that were happy
It’ll be hard to see
Why you’d chosen to leave
But never forget the feeling
When it’s right

And you won’t know until you try
You won’t know until you try
You won’t know until you try
You won’t know until you try

4   CRAZY
What have they done to the birds and the bees
The cradle was robbed the nest make believe
And they’re selling their souls for the purpose of losing it all

What have they done to the cracks in the walls
The world has been painted to cover it all
Now everyone’s afraid to admit that they’re getting old

Oh my lord I’m told

What have they done to the revolution
They call it a war and claimed it was useless
The voice of the ages will never be heard quite the same

What have they done to the innocent mind
Spoiled it and twisted the truth into lies
Now all of the peace lovers are having to draw up their swords

Oh my Lord I’m torn
If I’m going crazy then crazy is just that I’m born

What have they done to Jesus’ life
They’re making it cruel, say it’s a lie
But they still ask for his peace ‘cause they feel it inside

And what have they done with the two thousand years
Made history in to a faithful fear
But the cracks don’t expire just ‘cause the surface is dry

Oh my Lord I’m tired
If I’m going crazy, then crazy is just my desire
If I’m going crazy, crazy is just what I’ve seen
If I’m going crazy then crazy is just in between

From the time you said hello and what’s your name
You were work of art playing me like a little game
Now you can break my heart and I will love you just the same

I can see through your eyes
Your fingers crossed by your side
But I need your little shiny lies

You promised the world and opened up your door
And the words you fed left me wanting more
Now I’m left here locked out looking for a key to score

I can see through your eyes
Your fingers crossed by your side
But I need your little shiny lies

Fools gold shining…

You can break my heart and I will want you just the same
I can see through your eyes
Your fingers crossed by your side
But I need your little shiny lies
You can break my heart and I will love you just the same
I can see through your eyes
Your fingers crossed by your side
But I need your little shiny lies

6   THE OFFER
I have a proposal a deal we could make
Read it over slowly and see what’s at stake
A resume puffed up or full of accolades
It’s what I have none of

I’m not good at soap boxing matters of heart
I don’t have a life that’s a great work of art
Though I am not trained I think I know enough
I can offer love

So choose
And make sure you know what you’re getting into
This won’t be one of those love and leave experiments
That might not work for you

Do you know what happens when hearts are afraid
They don’t see when true love is right in their face
But you don’t have to worry you don’t have to wait
To take my offer up

So choose
And make sure you know what you’re getting into
This won’t be one of those love and leave experiments
That might not work for you

7   CHARLIE CHAPLIN
We are entertainers living in a scene where nobody slows down
Busy making little pieces into things that dare to make a sound
Fall like an angel, try like a fool and dare to walk away
Each of us has got a little Charlie Chaplin inside us

Saying, hey fellas why don’t we go where the movies are silent and life is as big as a stage

Waiting on clock or waiting on a view and hoping it’s new
We all got to find something to do
Well I say we take on the strange and insane
Come on and pick up our hats and our canes

And say, hey fellas why don’t we go where the movies are silent and life is as big as a stage, life is as big as a stage, life is as big as a stage, life is as big as a stage

Waddle your way to the sunset today
Waddle your way to the sunset today
Waddle your way to the sunset today
Anything for a laugh
Anything for a laugh

Hey fellas why don’t we go where the movies are silent and life is as big as a stage

I am a butterfly
I sweep so silent
I land upon the light so I can see the color of my wings
I’ll always fly away to find another
Old light to make me stay
But on my wings, the color always stays

No matter where I fly no matter who I land on
Can I expect to change when I was born this way
What do I expect to lose when I land on you

You’re much too bright for me
I cannot take it
I’ll stay indefinitely
Until I feel my wings begin to burn
You don’t belong with me but I am taking
This piece of revelry
Until feel ever wide awake

No matter where I fly no matter who I land on
Can I expect to change when I was born this way
What do I expect to lose when I land on you

I will never change for you
I will never change for you
But I’m not the same without you

I am a butterfly
I sweep to silent
I land upon the light
So I can see the color of my wings

9   NOT EVEN CLOSE
I have a dream of living a life that’s easier said than done
Stare in the mirror, I’m unfascinated with everything I have done
I’m faking my way, living it down
Oh my god I’m lazy and I’m frenzied
Licking my wounds and moving ahead
But I can’t take this wine and bread

I’m not even close to where I want to be

All of the people, as small as we are, we’re crying out with our hands
Feeding the poor and feasting on sunsets
Take it away my friend
All of the hands are having their way, licking their palms for a taste of grace
I’m saving myself for all of the moments that I’ll never have

I’m not even close to where I want to be

All of the people, as small as we are, we’re crying out with our hands
I’m unfascinated, as small as I am, nothing else here is grand
So take me away and move me ahead so I can take a taste of wine and bread
I’m living it down, it’s all that I have
This is about the things I’ll ever see

I’m not even close to where I want to be

And I’m unfascinated by everything else and me

10   WEIGHTLESS
Green, the color of the trees that grow while I am barely breathing
Entangled in hate and love
I can’t tell if I am numb or feeling

‘Cause I am broken hearted and you are beautiful
I am undecided and you are weightless

Sun, behind the blinds but I can’t open what I can’t find
Lies that taste so sweet
I’m not craving anything I need

I am broken hearted and you are beautiful
I am undecided and you are weightless

11   JENNY LYNN
All at once your city crumbles like Babylon
Even the gardens you’ve been hanging on
Disappear before your eyes
Take your time, let the words sink in
Before you say your mind
Heaven knows we all get lost sometimes
And you will find your way back

Wounded, you let your guard down and feel stupid
You wish you never would have trusted
Your heart in someone else’s hands
But it’s all okay
I think you may have made the best mistake
I think we’re made to give ourselves away
‘Cause there’s no other way to live

Jenny Lynn, I wish I had your thin skin
I wish that I could let the love right in
Maybe I’d rather feel the pain
‘Cause freedom is
A naked heart that always dares to give
A willingness to let the tenderness
Be taken as it may

12   DIAMOND RING
Spot light on a golden night from a birds eye it’s the perfect place to be queen
Or so they believe

An old song with a long story but make way for his new glory to be
You couldn’t wait for the scene

But Papa don’t buy me a diamond ring
‘Cause I ain’t got time for what you’re thinking
I’m a one man band with a late night show
You gotta let me go

Bone dry in the naked light I got my closed eyes so I can’t see what you mean
When you give them to me

Bomb drop from the flower shop and the nice guy steals the air from my wings
You should have thrown them at me

But Papa don’t buy me a diamond ring
‘Cause I ain’t got time for what you’re thinking
I’m a one man band with a late night show
You gotta let me go

Spot light on a golden night from a birds eye it’s the perfect place to be queen
And they will believe

But Papa don’t buy me a diamond ring
‘Cause I ain’t got time for what you’re thinking
I’m a one-man band with a late night show
You gotta let me go

14   MIDDLE
Split yourself down the middle
Take one half away
Make one seem the best so the least can have its way
Split yourself down the middle
Make one side the past
You’re left with the future and maybe it will last

Sell all of your burdens
Keep all of your prayers
And then say goodbye to the life that got you here
It isn’t as easy as I thought it’d be
Choosing the side that is everything I need

Split yourself down the middle
Take one half away
Make one seem the best so the least can have its way
Split yourself down the middle
Make one side the past
And now it’s the future and baby it’ll last

1   SAY GOODBYE
I never said goodbye on time
A worthy alibi for the one who doesn’t let go
I never let it die
I get tangled in the sweetness
Of all the afterthoughts
I’ve always had a weakness
For anything that walks
For the one who had to move on
From the one who got away

But none of this is real
Feet will harden to all those memories
How can I forget you
How can I please, please, please say goodbye

If what you wish for could come true
I’d give it all to you
I’d take the love you sent me
And send it back to you
I’d ask you then to listen, to listen there in bliss
But it doesn’t even matter
‘Cause none of it exists
I’m just the one that doesn’t exist
And you’re the one who got away

But none of this is real
Feet will harden to all those memories
How can I forget you
How can I please, please, please say goodbye

Say goodbye…to the time I never let you go
Say goodbye…to dream I held on for dear life
Say goodbye….

‘Cause none of this is real
Feet will harden to all those memories
How can I forget you
How can I please, please, please

2   CHASE ME
Come to think of it there’s not much to say
When it don’t end the way that you thought it would
Cause I can sit here counting the days
When I thought you should call me
Can you live with it
The memory of nothing to lose
Oh by the way I have so much confidence in you
Oh by the way this just doesn’t happen for you

You gotta chase me fight to break me to make all your dreams come true
Don’t keep me waiting while you’re saving yourself for you

It’s too soon to tell but they said that they loved you
And I think that I could have too
Said they’d never seen me smiling my brains out
I smiled all my brains out for you
But the tale would come to an end
‘Cause midnight came and the same old Cinderella tells her tale
And now I sit here waiting for my shoe

You gotta chase me fight to break me to make all your dreams come true
Don’t keep me waiting while you’re saving yourself for you

Who’s counting anyway, another day is over
Who wants to live that way, another heart is sober
Unwrap her mystery, pour out your heart and show her
That she is everything you see because she sees

You gotta chase her fight to break her to make all your dreams come true
Don’t keep her waiting while you’re saving yourself for you
You gotta chase her fight to break her to make all your dreams come true
Don’t keep her waiting while you’re saving yourself for you

This doesn’t cut it as hard as I try
I can’t pretend there’s something more here

You ask me to explain
But there’s nothing wrong

Oh I’ve listened over and over again

You’re not the only one who has tried
Tried to convince me that this was right
From the outside it appeared
There was nothing I should fear
You ask me to explain
But there’s nothing wrong
There’s nothing wrong

Oh I’ve listened over and over again
To all the reasons that I should give in
I’ve listened over and over and over and over again

You can’t make believe
This love is real
You survive before you drown in disguise
Oh I know that there’s a love that’s real
I can see it when I close my eyes

‘Cause I’ve listened over and over again
To the reasons that I should give in
I’ve listened over and over and over and over again

Wonderful world that you can waltz into
Breathing by the open sea
The back roads I think they belong to you
Drive away until you’re free

Baby don’t you love your life
You go crazy by the ocean and wild under the stars at night
If you let me follow you
You know I would have gone with you

Look at all the world that you have seen
Maybe it’s larger than the one that I could ever be
You gave all that you had true
And I would take it over any other one that I could

I looked away and you were gone
I should have known that it was time to move along
It seems so very long ago
Like I dreamed it up and never let it show

Baby don’t you love your life
Could it ever be the same for you and I
‘Cause every time I breath the open sea
I dream that you are waltzing your way back to me

I wash the make up off my face
Then lie in bed where I feel safe

I’ll tell you something that will make you hold on tight

I caught a glimps of you tonight
Yes I could see you through the lights
You smiled behind those big blue eyes
You smiled away my lonely night

So tell me something I don’t know
Tell me something that will make me hold on tight

You gotta get a hold on tight…

It seems my days are all the same
‘Cause I’m twisting all that I can tame
But I don’t think you play that game
I bet you dance out in the rain

Oh I drove all night, didn’t want to tell you I was on your side
Oh what a lonely night, the way a girl’s world can fall apart one time
But you can disregard everything they tell you
I’m just very tired, you really had no secrets, just your secret life
All the things you knew I never knew, I knew

Would you take it back if you could
Would you throw it all away and tell me I misunderstood
Would you take it back if you could

I gave you everything that every woman should
I gave you all those things, oh how it stings
To think I lived the dream just for awhile
Oh but dreams they die
Right when someone tells you it was all a lie
Right when someone tells you they are very sorry
I didn’t want to tell you it was not the time

Would you take it back if you could
Would you throw it all away and tell me I misunderstood
Would you take it back if you could
Would you take it back if you could
Give back what you took, give back what you took
Would you take it back if you could
Give back what you took, give back what you took

Oh I slept last night, the first time in awhile
Oh I dreamed I’d flied, oh what a lovely night
I flew away to find what I had left behind
And when I grew my wings I knew I could forgive you
I saw everything that I had ever done
And it was all the same
You would not believe what I could see
And I would take it back if I could
I would throw it all away, oh I misunderstood
Would you take it back if you could
Would you take it back if you could
Give back what you took, give back what you could

He’ll stop by to say I love you every time he passes through
I was lost and I have missed you they’re the words I listen to
Even if I stop the conversation will go on
And every word I haven’t said he’ll take for granted

I have packed my bag a hundred times told my mom I’m coming home
Bought a ticket down the river the only current that I know
But a day becomes a year and all the kisses cover the fear
And the tears become the dawn of another day

And the angels on the banks come to row me down the river
These strangers with their angel wings
All these strangers on the banks come to row me down the river with their angel wings
Their angel wings

I had a dream that I was pretty that I could fool your wild eyes
Start believing that I’m witty that I’d never compromise
The dream before the motel room and the old tattoo I got for you
I try to wash it off my body one last time

Before the angels on the banks come to row me down the river
These strangers with their angel wings
All these strangers on the banks come to row me down the river with their angel wings
Their angel wings

I’ve never been rescued before, I’ve never seen the end of a war
I never caught the grace of a lullaby, not the way that all the angels sing tonight

The angels on the banks have come to row me down the river
These strangers with their angel wings
All these strangers on the banks come to row me down the river with their angel wings

9   HUNGRY STILL
Is this where the rainbow ends
In this pot of emptiness
I’ve been holding out for the wind once again
You who ruled over my life
This handsome king without a promise of anything
I just assumed that you would love me too

I’ve been holding out for you
I’ve been setting this table for two
And I am hungry still
I am hungry still

Have your cake and eat it too
While the others starve as they look at you
They can’t see the feast in front of them
They just see you
Wasted time for a washed out road
Some place I could have been ten years ago
It was a close close call that wasn’t so close at all

I’ve been holding out for you
I’ve been setting this table for two
And I am hungry still
Oh I’m hungry still

But it wasn’t you, no it was me
You just happened to be standing in front of me
It wasn’t you, no it was me
You just happened to be…
You were standing in front of me
In front of me

So close your eyes and go to sleep
While I tell you this little story
Of a girl who couldn’t get the world to love her
Until she found in her own hand
The love she never even knew she had
It cost a fortune to find a love so free

She’s been holding out for you
She’s been setting her table for two
Just like I’m holding out for you
And I’m hungry still…

Watch them Fall, all the leaves are gold before they tumble to the ground
I can hear the sound of the brave
Run away, before you touch the gold that’s been haunting you for years
All the little years you have saved
Twenty-four years of the fire you have braved

I’ve been told, that I am like the one who never saw her face
Until she had to face the fire
How it burned, it burned my life away until I had no words to say
I finally felt the fear of the brave
Twenty-four years of the fire you have braved
Twenty-four years of the fire you have tamed

Oh the secrets come to the seasons of my life it was watch me fall
To the deepest parts that the fire holds the dream that once was watch it fall
We have come to see a world of peace a place of justice watch us fall down
We fall down twenty-four years of the fire watch them fall

I survived, but I will fall this year more golden than the last
The leaves are just a mask for the brave
They are turning gold, watch them fall

Looks like we’re gonna make it through
The night is ending
Notice too how the moon is hanging
Glowing in the sky
Looking just as tired as you

We’ll make it to the morning
Get to all the boring details
Everything is beautiful and new
Pictures in the clouds of you

It took the longest night to prove
You were stronger than you knew
I watched you sink and struggle
Out and then you grew
Something got a hold on you

You thought you’d never see the light
Stuck in the middle of the night
You were searching long before you ever knew
You were gonna make it through

Blow out the lantern that you keep
Lit beside you as you sleep
Watch the sun rise slowly
Shining right on you, shining right on you

Looks we’re gonna make it through
The dawn is breaking
Notice too how the sun is hanging
Glowing in the sky
Waking up to rise for you

You are brighter than the morning
You are brighter than the day…
