Love
We come to this life hungry
From our mother’s breast to the next thing
Love, love

We can’t say its name now; we stumble
We are not ashamed when we’re younger
Love, love

Oooh, we all know how
Oooh, we all know how

We don’t trust the ones who want us
Chasing after those running from us
Love, love

We can live without it easy
We don’t understand why we’re freezing
Love, love

Oooh, we all know how
Oooh, we all know how

Finally we are full and fearless
Sounding out the word and we mean it
Love, love

Oooh, we all know how
Oooh, we all know how
Back to Top

Red Shoes
Now you never call me
But I remember when you called me “honey”
I got a head so thick, pride on my tongue
Are you big enough to love me?
I felt so hopeless staring down the barrel of that life

You wouldn’t recognize me
But I’m still that same girl running
I’ve got a hotel pen, story in my head
And a little bit of money
This city’s so crowded
I find myself alone most of the time

But I came here for a reason
No, the girls in our town
They don’t understand
That I love you and I’m leaving
If you let me go, maybe there’s a chance

I wouldn’t call it easy, but everyday I cast these doubts out
I got a new silk dress, story in the paper,
Will I ever make you proud?
But I sleep so soundly
Feel the sun creep across my bed

Cause I came here for a reason
No, the girls in our town
They don’t understand
That I love you and I’m leaving
If you let me go, maybe there’s a chance

My mother was a dancer
Took off her red shoes
Please don’t make me
Please don’t make me choose

Cause I came here for a reason
No, the girls in our town
They don’t understand
That I love you and I’m leaving
If you let me go, maybe there’s a chance

Something Out Of Nothing
We’re so tired
We just need sleep, I know
I’m still storming
and I can’t let it go
So I keep you up
when you have nothing left
I just want you to hold me
and you will in the end

I make something out of nothing
This is what I always do

I take this ache
And the same old sting
You can’t see it
But it’s the heaviest thing
Turn them to words that cut
Hang them from notes deep blue
Chase out the shadows
And sing them for you

I make something out of nothing
This is what I always do
I make something out of nothing
This is what I always do

This body’s yours
It has been all along
I’m just a houseguest
who stayed on too long
Is it too late
to make this plea?
I am sick in my stomach
Where you’re supposed to be

I make something out of nothing
This is what I always do
I make something out of nothing
This is what I always do
I always do, you know I always do
Back to Top

Easy Now
Sunlight in my window
Landing on my pillow
Making me open my sleepy eyes
You greet me with a smile on
Kisses like I’ve been gone
Pulling me closer to your side

It’s easy
So easy
Easy now
It’s easy
So easy
Easy now

I used to get worked up
Over the small stuff
I would be up all night about it
Now I can’t help laughing
And you know the sad thing
Is how I went so long without it

It’s easy
So easy
Easy now
It’s easy
So easy
Easy now

All those years believing
Love meant someone’s leaving
All those years believing
If it’s not hard, it’s not the real thing

Look at this weather
It’s only getting better
Remember that winter when the lake froze
Now I’m hoping in the high tide
Floating in the twilight
I can even do it with my eyes closed

It’s easy
So easy
Easy now
It’s easy
So easy
Easy now
It’s easy
Like breathing
In and out

All those years believing
If it’s not hard, it’s not the real thing
Back to Top

On & On (For Mary)
You have your father’s eyes
His hair, gold and dark
My blush, my tiny hands
Your own great, big heart

It goes on and on
It goes on and on and on

New York cold front
I kept you warm, safe inside
There were days when
Your smile was the only light

It goes on and on
It goes on and on

I know you’re not really mine
You were my child; you were my baby
You were mine for a time
No, I’m not crying
Now you’re flying, flying

Wings fall down your back
All I wish for you is open sky

It goes on and on
It goes on and on
It goes on and on and on and on
It goes on and on and on and on
It goes on and on and on and on
Back to Top

Waiting (For Jeff and Eva)
It’s cold outside, but I can’t feel the chill
My heart caught fire, anything you ask, I will, I will
I won’t ask why I’m halfway off the ground
I left on a light, and now that light it won’t go out

I was waiting, waiting, waiting for you

We’ve both seen how a love can come untied
But I still believe, and you’re my answer why
My heart was tired, a faded paper valentine
Now my heart’s a child, racing crazy every time

I was waiting, waiting, waiting for you

Had a dream last night and in it you were gone
Woke to find you there, I just held on
Are you really mine? I had lost all trust in love
But now love’s like time, there can never be enough

I was waiting, waiting, waiting for you
Back to Top

Come Inside
I saw
You kneeling in the backyard
Staring up into the stars
It’s cold, come inside

I’m here
If you need me to listen
No, I won’t try to fix it
I swear, come inside

I know
How a heart can get so heavy
I can hold it if you’ll let me
In my arms, come inside

No words
Can change it but I want to
I hate that someone hurt you
But you’re safe now, come inside

Climb in
Cool pillow on your forehead
You can have the big bed
It’s yours, come inside

When it’s dark
Nothing feels like it will work out
Love, you just need sleep now
It’s late, come inside
It’s time, come inside
It’s time to come inside
Back to Top

Enough
You looked good from a distance
You felt even better from underneath
And you handled me so carefully

There you went like an arrow
I could have moved, I was still free
I just wanted to feel something

But you did not go deep enough

The same mouth that shouts at the waitress
Turns right around and lays one on me
But only when you’re sure they’re watching

You are your own California
Splitting apart, hell underneath
The ground opened and it almost killed me

You did not go deep enough
You did not go deep enough
Enough Enough…

Enough, I’m calling your bluff
I’ve uncovered what you’re made of

And you called it love
And you called it love
And you called it love

But you did not go deep enough
You did not go deep enough
You did not go deep enough
Enough Enough Enough
Back to Top

You Sold Me
Give me a cool dark night
and a long, long road
Still I’ll never get whatever this was

In my long black dress
A cool drink in your hand
You knew I loved to feel your eyes
You kissed me and my brain went dead
You were not like him
And you barely had to try

You sold me
You sold me
Just like that

Oh, you never told me
So I made up my own stories
For all those rooms I could never go
I could smell her on your clothing
Her sickly sweet perfume
I asked you, but I didn’t want to know

You sold me
You sold me
Just like that

While I was gone you left me
You left the whole house empty
You didn’t even think to leave a note

You sold me
You sold me
You sold me
Just like that

Give me a cool dark night
and a long, long road
Still I’ll never get whatever this was

So Wrong For Me (by Cory Chisel)
We’ve waded out
Across the boiling ocean waves
Oh mistakes were made
Your love is so wrong for me
I just keep on tryin’
To tear out my dreams
Nobody knows what nobody sees

I see this way to ruin
I see this way to grace
But I just can’t stand to see the smile on your face
If you thought for a minute I’ve gone the right way
My discourse lay dying
From a life I’ve left undone
Look what I’ve become
Your love is so wrong for me

I just keep on trying
To pull the pen from the page
To pull the words from my mouth
in a cold fit of rage

But remember me sweetly in the dark of midday
But I’ve never spoke to your skin in such a way
I just I love what I can, then I throw it away
Your love is so wrong for me
I just keep on trying
Back to Top

Lovely
She was a dark-eyed beauty
Red lips like rubies
Daddy said boys would fall at her feet
But his words erased her
All but the girl in the mirror
Yeah, love was only so deep

If I’m lovely, will you love me?

When you’ve never had love
You don’t know what it’s made of
You just try to keep warm where you can
She played the perfect young bride
But she was hollow inside
She thought he knew, so she ran

If I’m lovely, will you love me?
Will you love me?

Bottles from the ocean
Should wash up broken
But she was polished by the sea
Now’s she in your window
You forget ‘til the sun shows
She’s perfectly empty

If I’m lovely, will you love me?
If I’m lovely, will you love me?
Will you love me?
Back to Top

With You Now
You, the quiet one
Let's talk until we're done
When the red sun goes black

Me, the one who'd lost
All my fences gone
Let my willful heart escape

Oooh, I am with you now
Oooh, I am with you now

Me, the wakeful one
How you keep me calm
Draw the shades, make it night

You, the bravest of
Both, the two of us
Sweet, dark words from your mouth

Oooh, I am with you now
Oooh, I am with you now

We, the pioneers
We're the first ones here
You brought mountains
You brought mountains
I'll bring the sea

I am with you now
