Track Name: All I Want
Hold me tight / Make me take a deep breath / Tell me it's gonna be alright / Take this weight off my chest // Cause that is all that I want from you / That is all that I want from you now / Right now // I don't want a lie / But I don't really want the truth today / All I need is your arms around me / With the hope it will be ok // Cause that is all that I want from you / That is all that I want from you now / Right now / Now, right now // And if I can just have your heart beating next to my face / Then I might be convinced to believe that / It's all gonna be alright / All gonna work out just fine // Cause that is all that I want from you / That is all that I want from you / That is all that I want from you now / Right now / Now, right now // That's all, for now
Track Name: Same Old Lovers
Well last year we said this was our year / That life would look different from here on out / We made resolutions to live grand delusions / And change life as we knew it somehow // But then we wore our sparkly hats / And then we kissed as the midnight hour passed / And then we took a bite of good luck black eyed peas / And we took another look at you and me // To find that we're still the same old lovers / We're still sleeping underneath these same old covers / We're still waking with each other / Not another, oh / And there's so much further still to go / Oh, still to go // Well I said I had to get skinny / And you said you'd find our success somehow / Well thirty pounds less and I still feel like a mess / And we are still paying bills late somehow // And when we get to the end of another day / And realize al the silly things we say / And when we take a bite off more than we can chew / And we take another look at me and you // We see that we're still the same old lovers / We're just sleeping underneath these same old covers / We're still waking with each other / Not another, oh / And there's so much further still to go / Oh, still to go / Oh, still to go // And when we get to the end of another year / And realize that the both of us are still here / And when we take a look at back when we were younger / And we realize how far we have come // We see that we are just brand new lovers / We're just sleeping underneath these brand new covers / We're just waking for the first time / And there's so much further still to go / Oh still to go / Oh still to go / Oh here we go
Track Name: Bright Idea
I'd like a bright idea / I'd like a light at the end of the tunnel / I'd like a day that's clear / Or at least a night so bright it chases down my fears // And blows them all away / Sneezes at yesterday / Flexes her muscles at the future / And always gets her way // Oh I'd like a soul that sings / And a heart so light it carries all the heavy things / I'd like a bell that rings / Every time I start to sprout a pair of angel wings // And float into the sky / Give into great delight / Eat all my troubles like lemon drops / And take the rainbow slide // I'd like a life that lives / And a pair of reaching hands that always want to give / I'd like a conscience clear / Of hurting all the people that I hold so dear // And someday I’ll get it right / Be able to sleep at night / Living and loving and growing and knowing / I'll never get it right // I'd still like a, I'd like a, I'd like a, oh I'd like / I'd like a, I'd like a, I'd like a, oh I'd like // Someday to get it right / Be able to sleep at night / Living and loving and growing and knowing / I'll never get it right / But I'd still like a bright idea / I'd like a soul that sings / I'd like a conscience clear // Oh and I'd like a, I'd like a, I'd like a, oh I'd like / I'd like a, I'd like a, I'd like a, oh I'd like
Track Name: Home to You
A lot of life's been lived here in this little house / A lot of love's been felt here by us all / Lots of dreams and promises made in this house / A few of them are hanging on the walls // And though I don't know where we will go / As we are walking out this door / And though I don't always know what path our feet will choose / Baby I'll always be coming home to you // And now we're charting courses on this open road / Lots of life to be lived by the soul / Lots of dreams and promises found on this road / Even though they're not within four walls // And though I don't know what life will bring / And though I don't know what songs we'll sing / And though I don't always know what path our feet will choose / Baby I'll always be coming home to you / Baby I'll always be coming home to you // And though I don't know what time will tell / And though I don't know what dreams will sail / And though I don't always know what path our feet will choose / Baby I'll always be coming home to you / Baby I'll always be coming home to you / Baby I'm always right at home with you
Track Name: Cotton Dress
Face is pressed into the carpet / Spin the record then restart it / Needle pressed into the vinyl / And music came to life // For a little girl in a cotton dress / That spins the room with hair a mess / Waiting for their wild applause / To make her feel alive // On the weeknights Mamma sang / “You are my Sunshine” before we prayed / And I’d try not to fall asleep / So she would just keep singing // But on the weekends Daddy played it / On the guitar was my favorite / Music was the way he prayed / And it made me feel alive // And now I sing “You are my Sunshine” / For the ones who are my sunshine / And pray that they won’t fall asleep / So I can just keep singing // To a little girl in a cotton dress / A bigger boy with hair a mess / The way they spin around the room / Well it makes me feel alive // Face is pressed into the carpet / Spin the record then restart it / Music is the way I pray / And it makes me feel alive
Track Name: The Trees
Where have you been / And where are you going / And where are you resting tonight? / As the sun's lying down / And as the clouds gather round / To cast out your shadows of life // Will you lay down the fight / And will you hold the sky's lights / Where you are tonight // Well I heard it said one time / We only live life one time / And I wonder if that is true / Cause that's only one thought / And I seem to think a lot / About where our breath passes to // And if you'll blow life through the trees / Or if you'll be watching over me / From where you are tonight // And oh I want to know / Oh I want to know / Where you are tonight // I want to believe in love / I want to believe enough / To know where you're resting tonight // And maybe you're wandering free / Dancing on the waves of a breeze / Breathing life much deeper than me // Or maybe you're hearing them sing / As you bow down on your knees / Before a throne holding a king / Where you are tonight
Track Name: Still
Do you still want me / Do you still think me pretty / And do you still think my curves fit you perfectly / Oh do you still want me // I still want you / And I still fancy you handsome / And I just think the gray in your beard / Proves you’ve loved me long and true / Oh I still want you // And I can’t think of anything better / Than growing old and crazy together / And even when were wrinkled up and rocking on the porch / And our bones can’t tolerate the weather / Oh I will still want you // And I can’t think of anything better / Than growing old and crazy together / And even when were wrinkled up and rocking on the porch / And our bones can’t tolerate the weather / Oh I, I will still want you / I hope you still want me too
Track Name: Conversations with Z
I don’t want to grow up she said to me / I don’t want to grow up she said when she was barely three / I just want to be your little girl forever // And I don’t like to paint my nails or wear lipstick / I don’t like to brush my hair and make up makes me sick / Oh I just want to be your little girl forever // And she went dancing through the room / And singing through the halls / And she was mine // Will you make it to the school with your lunch and mine / I’m afraid that you’ll forget and you won’t make it on time / And I will have to buy that gross hot lunch again // And I don’t like it when you yell at me that way / I don’t like it when you call me all those silly names / And tell me I’m a crazy girl using half my brain // And she went kicking through the room / And screaming through the halls / And she was mine // And then she danced right through the room / And sang right through the halls / And she was mine // Wake up Mom I had another scary dream tonight / Can I climb up in your bed instead of mine / Just like I used to do when I was barely three // So in the crook of my arm I can feel her red hair / Underneath my nose and I can smell the fire burning there / And know that she won’t be my little girl forever // But for now she presses into me / And breathes a sigh of deep relief / And we both know we’re chasing time / As she kicks me in the ribs and tosses over me / And she is mine // Well she goes dancing through the room / And singing through the halls / And she is mine, oh she’s always mine / She will dance into your heart and sing into you life / But she’ll be mine // I don’t want to grow up she said to me
Track Name: Green
The grass is always brown here / Cause the sprinkler system’s broke / And nothing ever grows here / Except the weeds that could make you choke // I can see through the cracks in your fence / And I know you’ve got a lot of green / If you’d just share your secret with me / Then life would really be a dream // Oh, green // I’ve always wanted flowers like yours / And a garden full of butterflies / But all we’ve got are the bees over here / And the pollen that will sting your eyes // I can see through the cracks in your fence / And I know you’ve got a lot of green / If you’d just share your secret with me / Then life would really be a breeze // Oh, green / Oh, I want your green // Well yesterday I got sick of it / So I came and knocked down your fence / I stood there with my jaw on the ground / Cause suddenly it all made sense // Your grass was just as brown as mine / And the plastic flowers had bees / Butterflies were painted all over the walls / It was the Astroturf that was so // Green / Oh, I want your green / Don’t we all want green / We all want green
Track Name: Waiting
I brought in this morning with thoughts of you / And how you're aching heart is trying to push through / And break out of the soil / And cut away the roots / That no longer offer any life to you // So you're waiting on your sun / And you're waiting on your rain / But you're singing hallelujah while you wait / And you wanna know the answers / And you wanna know them now / But there's so much truth / That can't be found // Well I brought in this evening with thoughts of me / And how we're not that different, you and me / Well I've been searching a little longer / But searching always brings some pain / And desperate still feels desperate / No matter what the age // So I'm waiting on my sun / And I'm waiting on my rain / But I'm singing Hallelujah with you while I wait / And I wanna know the answers / But now I wanna know them slow / So I can see my own reflection / In the life I show // We're all waiting on our sun / We're all waiting on our rain / So we can hope and we can grow and we can change / And we're singing Hallelujah / If only but a song / To hold us while we're waiting
Track Name: Where It Began
Well you walked into the dawning of my mind
And you showed me all the hidden paths that I could never find
And you sat with me and told me of the life
That had taken you to places where the sun would surely die

And blood ran thicker and deeper than the wounds that packed it in
And water flowed from the side of the love where it began
Oh and I can't seem to be clean from what's washing thru my veins
But it's bringing hope to a heart that was hiding from it's name

Well you told me what I needed but didn't want to hear
then you showed me what my mind could see if I would listen past the fear
And you wrote to me and told me of a life
Where if I listened to the wind all the answers would come in time

And blood ran thicker and deeper than the wounds that packed it in
And water flowed from the side of the love where it began
Oh and I can't seem to be clean from what's washing thru my veins...

But I know it's bringing new life
Oh I know it's bringing new life
It's bringing new life....

And now blood runs thicker and deeper than the wounds that pack it in
And water flows from the side of the love where it began
Oh and I don't want to be clean from what's washing thru my veins
Cause it's bringing hope to a heart that was hiding...
Track Name: Broken Kiss
I don’t wanna love you like this / I don’t wanna taste this broken kiss anymore / I don’t wanna breathe with you like this / Rising in and out of what we thought we had together // Oh I loved you / Oh I loved you / I loved you / Yes I did // And Oh I know, I know, I know, I know / That we might lose this fight that we’ve been fighting for / And I know, I know, I know, I know / That when I wake up, I may not wake up, I may not wake up to you // Oh but I don’t wanna live with you like this / Seems like lately all we do is hit and miss each other / But I don’t wanna die with you like this / Falling in and out of what we thought we had together // Oh I loved you / Oh I loved you / I loved you, yes I did // And oh I know, I know, I know, I know / That we might lose this fight that we’ve been fighting for / And I know, I know, I know, I know, I know / That when I wake up, I may not wake up, I may not wake up to you // Oh but / Oh I loved you / Oh I loved you / I loved you // And maybe I still love you / Maybe I still love you / I love you
