See that happy girl Singing all the songs that’s in her heart Yesterday she didn’t think That she would get this far Now she’s opened up Opened up her heart and now her soul She doesn’t need control and fantasy To make it through the day Chorus (She’s going to) stand up tall Look tomorrow in the eye She won’t even stop, To count how many tears she’s cried See that happy girl Singing all the songs that’s in her heart Yesterday she didn’t know That she would get this far Now her life has changed She doesn’t even see a broken dream Everything to her it seems Is perfectly in tune She takes a leap of faith Stepping into who knows where She knows her life Is waiting there (She’s going to) stand up tall Look tomorrow in the eye She won’t even stop To count how many tears she’s cried

She fell out of love & So she said goodbye To all the dreams that she held She left it all behind And cast her soul into the wind Not knowing if she would fall Chorus The door was open And she could walk away With just a smile But memories they turned her back Before she walked a mile She could not hide the truth, She could not wish away The yearning in her heart For the feel of a lovers kiss For that moment of being his Was all she could think about She did not hide the truth from herself Did not let it go Though it hurt her more than she could say She kept on walking, Despite her broken heart She would not turn the other way

She won’t tell you She’s not over him That she still cries at night, And she still calls his name She won’t tell you If she’ll ever love again He’s taken everything And then some Chorus She can’t fake it Now she’s naked She can’t take it Now she’s naked Secrets never die They’re waiting to be found To trip her up in case She tries to turn around She can’t tell you If she’ll ever love again He’s taken everything And then some She won’t tell you Everything’s ok Deep inside she knows it isn’t But these are not the words She knows you want to hear He’s taken everything And then some

I was feeling blue Couldn’t keep my fingers from the phone I had too much to drink; I sort of hoped you’d be alone So I got out of bed and poured myself another drink Drinking wine is so damn bad The only thing it makes me do is think Chorus I guess I’m not over you, didn’t want to say goodbye And I can’t find a reason to stop crying in the night It wasn’t me, it wasn’t you It wasn’t love I thought I knew But I swear I hear the sound of my heart breaking I saw you yesterday, passing by You turned the other way, didn’t even want to catch my eye So I got in the car, I drove away Until I found another bar And I just stayed there for days and days I tried to write a note to tell you how if eel But tears kept falling from my eyes And I forget what’s real So I got out of bed And poured myself another drink. Drinking wine is so damn bad The only thing it makes me do is think

You are my love I want you by my side As sure as stars shine up above As sure as oceans move the tide When all my dreams desert me When my friends all disappear Every word is unspoken I turn around and you are here You are the one Everyday I love you more And even when the light is gone And I’m wondering What my life is for When all my tears are falling When all my hope is gone I hear you softly calling I look at you and see the sun You save my life Every time you hold my hand You make it right When I don’t remember where I stand And every single moment Of every single day Just when I reach my limit I look at you and I’m ok You are my love I want you by my side Sure as stars shine up above Your arms are always open wide And when I’m feeling down If I stumble and fall I know that you will be there We’ll get through You stand me tall
6.
Don’t you look back Don’t shed a tear When you are leaving I’ll still be here You know by going You’ll break my heart Oh you’ll break my heart Get in your fast car And take to the road Put miles between us And pray for my soul You know by going You’ll break my heart Oh you’ll break my heart Chorus I have to let go Even though I love you It’s too late to try So we’ll say goodbye Time it is precious And it’s slipping away There’s only one thing I want you to say But you know by going You’ll break my heart Oh you’ll break my heart It’s just you and me There’s no reason to go We can be free To say what we know You know by going You’ll break my heart Oh you’ll break my heart
7.
Lover talk to me I can’t stand the silence And the pain Lover talk to me Silent tears fall from my eyes Lover talk to me Lover talk to me Love talk to me I need a hand to hold When my head is in the clouds Lover talk to me When I’ve fallen into darkness Lover talk to me Lover talk to me There’s no sense in the time Or the days When the light shines down And I wonder did I hear it all When you’re telling me That you love me You love me You love me Everyday Lover talk to me Help me understand your stories And your pain Lover talk to me Keep me safe inside your world Lover talk to me Lover talk to me
8.
I feel heartbreak behind me Now I’ve let go of you And the futures before me Now I’ve found someone new For the girl that was broken Is no longer me And the tears that have fallen They have dried Now I’m free All the words that we’ve spoken All the love that we made Disappeared in the moment That you walked away I could call you and tell you I’m so glad that you’ve gone How I’m better without you That I’m stronger alone But I’m sure that you’d tell me That you’re better too So I won’t even bother No, I won’t cry for you
9.
Hey little girl Don’t look at the sun Just be certain That it shines on everyone Hey little girl Don’t be surprised When the sun falls The moon it will rise Ahh Hey little girl Go chase your dreams Don’t you be wondering About what it means Mountains will crumble Empires will fall Shake your head Laugh through it all Ahhhh Hey little girl Stop wondering how There’s nothing to stop you If you just allow Peace to flow outwards Love to flow in Heaven will follow Where hell pitches in Hey little girl How brightly you shine Without even trying You are divine Never stop hoping Believe it will come Your voice will be heard By everyone
10.
(The 605 song) Well my baby left me on the 605 I smiled as he was leaving And as the tears welled in my eyes It was me I was deceiving It doesn’t bother me is what I said As I watched him drive away But I knew my heart would rule my head And I would rue that day Chorus But it’s over now It’s too far gone There’s nothing left to save Yes it’s over now What’s done is done I got down on my knees And I prayed I waited till he disappeared from view Before I let it go He was the only one Who had made it through The only one to know And as I hit that 605 Wondering where to go I pass my baby waiting at the fork I stop the car And let him know It’s not over now It’s just begun This loving game we play For now it’s right We’ll get along I got down on my knees And I prayed
11.
Happy birthday to me And what do I see A heart broken in two Now I’m without you Oh my wounds they run deep As deep as can be Don’t know where I’m going Don’t know where I’ve been Happy birthday to me And what do I know This party was over Such a long time ago The cuts they are open And now there’s a flood And there ain't no use hoping That it’s gonna stop Happy birthday to me Was it something I said Can’t believe it’s me speaking Lying here on this bed If I stop for a moment And open my eyes I might just discover Birthday surprise

Listen to the beat of your heart, Constant in the silence Know that the angels guide you though Sometimes you cannot hear them Trust in your inner vision, A glimpse of heaven in the dark Know that the angels guide you though Sometimes you cannot see them Chorus Have you ever listened to the birds sing? Or heard the trees talking in the wind Such treasures there for everyone As constant as the setting sun Do the things that should be done, Moving forward step by step Know that the angels guide you though Sometimes you cannot feel them Love each moment in your life, Bathe yourself in holy grace Know that the angels guide you though Sometimes you cannot hold them Have you ever listened to a sweet honey bee? Its wings vibrating in the air Such treasures there for everyone As constant as the setting sun

about

Writing and recording this album to me has been about stripping away all the layers of my life until I got down to the very heart of me, exposed, unprotected, uncovered, stripped bare; Naked.
thank you to my wonderful band, your support has been unforgettable.
