back together

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

I don’t wanna be the center of it all
I don’t wanna be a memory fading
I don’t wanna be somebody I’m not
I just wanna be somebody amazing

I’ve been holding on to everything
With arms above, I’m balancing

I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together
I’ve been stalling, slipping, falling
Nothing, darling, lasts forever
There’s no way I’d trade my scars for better ones
I’ve been lost and I’ve been broken
Finally coming back together

I don’t wanna be afraid of my thoughts
I don’t wanna be scared of my shadow
Everybody looks for love where it’s not
Everybody wants to know they matter

I’ve been holding on to everything
With arms above, I’m balancing

I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together
I’ve been stalling, slipping, falling
Nothing, darling, lasts forever
There’s no way I’d trade my scars for better ones
I’ve been lost and I’ve been broken
Finally coming back together

I’ve been holding on to everything
With arms above, balancing

I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together
I’ve been stalling, slipping, falling
Nothing, darling, lasts forever
There’s no way I’d trade my scars for better ones
I’ve been lost and I’ve been broken
Finally coming back together
Back together
(I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together)

Back together

just a girl

Friday, October 5th, 2018

Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
I’m exposed, and it’s no big surprise
Don’t you think I know
Exactly where I stand
This world is forcing me
To hold your hand

‘Cause I’m just a girl, little ol’ me
Well don’t let me out of your sight
Oh, I’m just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don’t let me have any rights
Oh, I’ve had it up to here!

The moment that I step outside
So many reasons for me to run and hide
I can’t do the little things
I hold so dear
‘Cause it’s all those little things
That I fear

‘Cause I’m just a girl
I’d rather not be
‘Cause they won’t let me drive
Late at night
Oh I’m just a girl
Guess I’m some kind of freak
‘Cause they all sit and stare
With their eyes

Oh I’m just a girl
Take a good look at me
Just your typical prototype
Oh, I’ve had it up to here!

Oh, am I making myself clear?

I’m just a girl
I’m just a girl in the world
That’s all that you’ll let me be!
Oh I’m just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb
Make me worry some
Oh I’m just a girl, what’s my destiny?
What I’ve succumbed to
Is making me numb
Oh I’m just a girl, my apologies
What I’ve become is so burdensome
Oh I’m just a girl, lucky me
Twiddle-dum there’s no comparison
Oh, I’ve had it up to –
Oh, I’ve had it up to –
Oh, I’ve had it up to here

six pack summer

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

Winter sure was cold and miserable
Cooped up, shut down; baby, it was pitiful
Anyhow, it’s over now
We owe it to ourselves to have a little fun
The pace car’s pacin’;
Now the green flag’s wavin’

Uh oh, another six-pack summer comin’
Sing to me, babe; I’ll be your dashboard drummer, and
Let’s turn the radio up as loud it can go (Uh-oh oh oh)
Got the ultra-ray wraparound sunglass vision
Got the sails up, iced-down, cool ambition
Just to relax and let the six-pack summer roll

We’ve got the sun block, a blanket, and the best of Jimmy Buffet
T-bones for the grill; hey, ain’t it great to rough it?
The party’s on from dawn til dawn
Twenty-four-seven till they pull the plug
No more waitin’; come on and kiss me, baby

Uh oh, another six-pack summer comin’
Sing to me, babe, I’ll be your dashboard drummer, and
Let’s turn the radio up as loud it can go (Uh-oh oh oh)
Got the ultra-ray wraparound sunglass vision
Got the sails up, iced-down, cool ambition
Just to relax and let the six-pack summer roll (Uh-oh oh oh)

Slow and steady, I’m so ready
Uh oh, another six-pack summer comin’
Sing to me, babe, I’ll be your dashboard drummer, and
Let’s turn the radio up as loud it can go (Oh-oh oh oh)
Got the ultra-ray wraparound sunglass vision
Got the sails up, iced down, a cool ambition
Just to relax and let the six-pack summer roll (Uh-oh oh oh, uh-oh oh oh)
Uh oh, another six-pack summer comin’
Uh oh

navigator

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Keep missing our exits
But we let ’em pass by
I told you that I don’t mind, it’s alright,
Just wanna be with you tonight
You’re leaving me breathless
Like I’m falling for the first time
You don’t have to say a word
I’m back to where we were
At a red light, when I fell for you
Baby, drive slow, ’cause I love the view
We can stop here, if you want me to
It’s a long road, but if

You are my navigator
We could take the long way home
We could take the long way
Hoooooooooooome
You are my navigator
You never have to bring me home
You never have to bring me
Hoooooome
‘Cause home is everywhere we go

With a tank full of daydreams
Leave our fears at the roadside
I’m blind with your love, I lose sight,
I wanna get lost tonight
In the simplest places
In the look in your eyes
I never want to touch the ground
‘Cause we’re safe and sound

At a red light, when I fell for you
Baby, drive slow, ’cause I love the view
We can stop here, if you want me to
It’s a long road, but if

You are my navigator
We could take the long way home
We could take the long way
Hooooooome
You are my navigator
You never have to bring me home
You never have to bring me
Hooooooome
Cuz home is everywhere we go
(We’re at a)
Cuz home is everywhere we go
Everywhere we go
Home is everywhere we go

We can take the long way
We can take the long way home
We can take the long way
Cuz home is everywhere we go

Red light when i fell for you
Baby, drive slow, cuz I love the view
We can stop here, if you want me to
It’s a long road, but if

You are my navigator
We could take the long way home
We could take the long way
Hooooooome
You are my navigator
You never have to bring me home
You never have to bring me
Hooooooome
Cuz home is everywhere we go

giants

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

I don’t wanna see the wires in the circus anymore
I wanna dream and make believe people can fly
I don’t need to be reminded what it takes to kill the fun
I’ve got a head full of sharp knives

Yeah, it’s easy to get colder
And it’s easy to forget
So meet me where the light’s dim

We can wake up every mornin’
We can set ourselves on fire
And we can do it all again

The world don’t speak for us
They lack the confidence
Yeah, we’re only hearts and bones and blood
Oh, but we are giants
Giants

The walls are closing in
We climb and they descend
With nothing but the clouds against our skin
Oh, we are giants
Giants

I wanna roll around the darkness
‘Til the darkness goes away
‘Til the television finally tells the truth
You know everybody’s scared of things they don’t understand
And all the living they don’t do

Yeah, it’s easy to get colder
And it’s easy to forget
So meet me where the lights dim

We can wake up every mornin’
We can set ourselves on fire
And we can do it all again

The world don’t speak for us
They lack the confidence
Yeah, we’re only hearts and bones and blood
Oh, but we are giants
Giants

The walls are closing in
We climb and they descend
With nothing but the clouds against our skin
Oh, we are giants
Giants

I’m done tryin’ to fit in
And be half-forgiven
For things that I never did
We’re more than what scares us
We’re final and fearless
We’ll dance where the ice gets thin
Gets thin

The world don’t speak for us
They lack the confidence
Yeah, we’re only hearts and bones and blood
Oh, but we are giants
Giants

The walls are closing in
We climb and they descend
With nothing but the clouds against our skin
Oh, we are giants
Giants

sadness

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

I don’t know what I’m doing
I’ve been standing still
I spend my life burning bridges
And digging holes to fill

You gotta get low-ow-ow
You gotta get low-ow-ow
To get high
You gotta get low-ow-ow
You gotta get low-ow-ow
To get high

Yeah, I can feel you with me in the darkness
Reaching out a hand to pull me through
Sadness used to think that it owned me
Now, sadness has got to share me with you

You gotta get low-ow-ow
You gotta get low-ow-ow
To get high

I don’t know how you do it
You’re the calm at sea
You find flowers in the ruins
And the good in me

You gotta get low-ow-ow
You gotta get low-ow-ow
To get high
You gotta get low-ow-ow
You gotta get low-ow-ow
To get high

Yeah, I can feel you with me in the darkness
Reaching out a hand to pull me through
Sadness used to think that it owned me
Now, sadness has got to share me with you

You gotta get low-ow-ow
You gotta get low-ow-ow
To get high
You gotta get low-ow-ow
You gotta get low-ow-ow
To get high

You gotta lost to let go
You gotta lost to let go
You gotta lost to get free for a minute
See clear for a minute
Let go
You gotta lost to let go
You gotta lost to get free for a minute
See clear for a minute

the longest way

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

(Then baby, I have got a plan
Let’s hit the road
C’mon let’s go
Let’s take the longest way we can)

I’d love to take my time
I’d let myself unwind
Cause sometimes it feels these wheels
Keep spinning at the speed of sound

I’d take the scenic route
Ain’t that what life’s about
I would stop and smell
Each and every single rose I found

I’m so tired of saying someday that we’ll do it
Grab the keys get in the car and let’s get to it

Let’s head north or east or west or south
Just as long as we go now
Let’s let these headlights slice the night away
Til the sun comes out
If all the fun’s in getting there
Then baby, I have got a plan
Let’s hit the road
C’mon let’s go
Let’s take the longest way we can

My heart’s restless but it’s true
When it comes to loving you
And that ain’t never gonna change
No matter where we are

This old world keeps laughing like it’s got us
Don’t know why we ever let it stop us

Let’s head north or east or west or south
Just as long as we go now
Let’s let these headlights slice the night away
Til the sun comes out
If all the fun’s in getting there
Then baby, I have got a plan
Let’s hit the road
C’mon let’s go
Let’s take the longest way we can

Let’s head north or east or west or south
North or east or west or south
Just as long as we go now
Let’s let these headlights slice the night away
Til the sun comes out
If all the fun’s in getting there
Then baby, I have got a plan
Let’s hit the road
C’mon let’s go
Let’s take the longest way we can

The longest way
Hey
The longest way
Hey
The longest way

dear mr president

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

(I know this song is about George W Bush, but it’s impossible not to think/ask the same things these days.)

Dear Mr. President,
Come take a walk with me.
Let’s pretend we’re just two people and
You’re not better than me.
I’d like to ask you some questions if we can speak honestly

What do you feel when you see all the homeless on the street?
Who do you pray for at night before you go to sleep?
What do you feel when you look in the mirror?
Are you proud?

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Can you even look me in the eye
And tell me why?

Dear Mr. President,
Were you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
How can you say
‘No child is left behind’?
We’re not dumb, and we’re not blind
They’re all sitting in your cells
While you pave the road to hell

What kind of father would take his own daughter’s rights away?
And what kind of father might hate his own daughter if she were gay?
I can only imagine what the First Lady has to say
You’ve come a long way from whiskey and cocaine

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Can you even look me in the eye?

Let me tell you ’bout hard work:
Minimum wage with a baby on the way
Let me tell you ’bout hard work:
Rebuilding your house after the bombs took them away
Let me tell you ’bout hard work:
Building a bed out of a cardboard box
Let me tell you ’bout hard work, hard work, hard work
You don’t know nothing ’bout hard work, hard work, hard work
Ooh

How do you sleep at night?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Dear Mr. President,
You’d never take a walk with me,
Would you?

her diamonds

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

“Oh what the hell” she says
“I just can’t win for losing”
And she lays back down
Man there’s so many times
I don’t know what I’m doin’
Like I don’t know now

By the light of the moon
She rubs her eyes
Says “it’s funny how the night
Can make you blind”
I can just imagine
And I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
But if she feels bad, then I do too
So I let her be

And she says, “oh,
I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down
Way down

Well she sits down and stares into the distance
And it takes all night
And I know I could break her concentration
But it don’t feel right

By the light of the moon
She rubs her eyes
Sits down on the bed and starts to cry
And there’s something less about her
And I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
So I sit down and I cry too
But don’t let her see

And she says, “oh,
I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down

She shuts out the night
Tries to close her eyes
If she can find daylight
Then she’ll be alright
She’ll be alright
Just not tonight

And she says, “oh,
I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling

“Oh, I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down

(I can’t take no more)
(Diamonds on the floor)
(No more) no more
(No more)
Diamonds falling down
(I can’t take no more)
(Diamonds on the floor)
(No more, no more, no more, no more)
Diamonds falling down, yeah
(I can’t take no more)
(Diamonds on the floor)
(No, no, no, no)
Oh diamonds fall, and oh her diamonds
Diamonds falling down
I can’t take these diamonds falling down

i wish i was

Saturday, March 4th, 2017

On paper we go together
I know that we look the part
But almost never hangs on forever
I know I’m breaking your heart

So go on, say what you want to
I’m not gonna stop you
You can blame it all on me

I’m not the hero in the story
I’m not the girl that gets the glory
‘Cause you’re looking for true love
And I’m not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was
Hmm, I wish, oh I wish I was
Hmmmmm

Wish I could feel about you
The way you feel about me
But you can’t make a heart say something
That it don’t believe

So go on, hate me if you have to
I hate myself too
‘Cause as much as I want to be

I’m not the hero in the story
I’m not the girl that gets the glory
‘Cause you’re looking for true love
And I’m not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was
Hmm, I wish, oh I wish I was

Go on, hate me if you have to
I still care about you
Hmm, as much as I want to be

I’m not the hero in the story
I’m not the girl that gets the glory
‘Cause you’re looking for true love
And I’m not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was

Oh, ’cause you’re looking for true love
And I’m not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was
Hmm, I wish, oh I wish I was
Hoo, mmm
Oh oh oh
