Track Name: Lights
I’ve been staying up too late
I’ve been sleeping in all day
Maybe I’m afraid
Maybe I should stay
Pacing around my room
Not much else to do
But sit and talk to you
Though we’re through

And maybe I’m losing my mind
Maybe we’re all out of time
All I know, All I know is
Turn the light, Turn the lights out
And maybe you don’t have to go
I know you don’t want to be alone
All I know, All I know is
Turn the light, Turn the lights out

I’ve been staying up too late
I’ve been sleeping in all day
I’m afraid
I should stay
Pacing around my room
Nothing else to do
But sit and talk to you
Though we’re through

And I know that it’s hard to love a girl like me
Someone who always knows where she has to be
And I know that it’s hard to take a step back but
I’ve got the wheel and I’m not giving it back…

And maybe I’m losing my mind
Maybe we’re all out of time
All I know, All I know is
Turn the light, Turn the lights out
And maybe you don’t have to go
I know you don’t want to be alone
All I know, All I know is
Turn the light, Turn the lights out
Turn the light, Turn the lights out
Track Name: Hometown
I went to examine her body, she was pale and cold
A scene so lifeless, her soul had let her go
The last time that I sa her, she was bright as gold
But now that conversation just seems so long ago

And I grew up, I grew up
In our hometown.

And I grew up
I grew up, I grew up
In our hometown
In our hometown
And leaving was just a part of our bigger dreams

And I grew up, I grew up
In our hometown
Track Name: Needlepoint & Post Cards
I collect post cards
Letters of unrequited love
“Dear friend, here’s where I’ve been
Hope to see you, soon again”
Signed, “with love”

Needlepoint hangs on my wall
Of farms and pastures
In Spring and Fall
And I can see us
with a yard,
beds of flowers,
and my post cards.
Built with love.

And I spend time
Living in past lives.

And someday I’ll die...
What will I leave behind?
Track Name: Decisions
Yeah we broke up
And we finally meant it
And your eyes
Were shaking in their sockets
And your body
Lost all of its function
I was scared for my life…

So you floored it
And I thought that I might die
Then you slammed it
The breaks at every light
Yeah, you nailed it
Your fear for your mental health
We ignored it…

And maybe I was right
To abandon our whole life
And it’s hard, sometimes
To stand by after every fight
‘Cause you don’t treat me right
Treat me right, treat me right, treat me right…

And I stand
Bags in my hand
And I can’t
Go on like this
And if I’m selfish
Maybe you deserve it
No one will understand…

Treat me right.
Track Name: Coast to Coast
We drove around from coast to coast
We set our eyes on it
Where we end up no one knows
City to city until we fit

They say to keep your friends close
So how did I end up all alone?
I came I left, it’s how it goes
And if I turn back I’ll just stay home

If you need me don’t stop me now.

You say busy is an excuse
But I know I chose it over you
And if I stay there’s more to lose
So I’m sorry but accept the truth

If you need me don’t stop me now
Track Name: Better
I feel so disgusted in my own body
You crept inside of me, left your scars beneath my skin
And I can’t tend to them.

And I spend too much time, wondering why
Blaming myself, when there was nothing I could have done
And it’s not fear that I am expected to forgive.

And it aches. And it hurts. And it never goes away.

And I go through, talking to
People I make uncomfortable or they intrude
Either way I’m alone
Although I have it all…
I have it all.
Track Name: Small Cups of Tea
So this is how it goes
Moving on so slow
And I watched you ignore my suffering
How’d you be so low?

I was wearing a dress
Easy to lift
Hands run up my hip
Try to convince me I want it

And I said no…

When I was a child I knew this would happen.
When I was a child I thought it was normal.
And I was… I was right.

And I said no…
Track Name: Weightless
I had a dream that I was laying weightlessly
I couldn’t feel a thing, not the water or the lilies around me
I could hear the frogs and the splashes moving further
And although I am free, I’m alone in my thoughts and uncertainties…

Everyone was swimming away in fear of me
I wanted to talk or to sing, to show them I’m full of beauty
But nothing came out… I’m weightless the water is empty.
I’m weightless. I’m weightless. I’m weightless. I’m weightless.
