Track Name: Estes Park
This is it
This is love for sure
You just don’t say those things when you’re so secure
This is it
It is you
How can it be that the things you said were not true?

Estes Park in ‘93
I saw your deep brown eyes under the willow tree
And I calmed my nerve with the cool ice air
And I woke up at eight to brush my long blonde hair

I see your face
And I see you stare at the other girls
And I know it’s fair
But you took my hand in the concert hall
And my world turned and you said, “I swear I’ll call”

This is it
This is love for sure
You just don’t say those things when you’re so secure
This is it
It is you
How could it be that the things you said were not true?

Back at home in my bed so tight
We talked on the phone in the dead of night
But you were miles past in your province far
And we whispered words and wished on stars

You sent a tape, “This is how I sing”
You said, “If I knew you then, it be in a different key”
So I closed my eyes and said my prayers
That you were real and you were fair

This is it
This is love for sure
You just don’t say those things when you’re so secure
This is it
It is you
How could it be that the things you said were not true?

I caught you in lies; I caught you in lies
And I tore the songs that didn’t belong to you
And I cut my hair, one last strand will do
And I saw through all that you said, you said, you said,

This is it
This is love for sure
You just don’t say those things when you’re so secure
This is it
It is you
How could it be that the things you said were not true?
Were not true

Things you said were not true?

Things you said were not

Things you said were not true?
Track Name: Heel Dance
I don’t know how to refrain
Hold me back till I am sane
Maybe I’m just forced to fight
Hold me down
Take all my rights

I don’t know how to get us back
I don’t know how to make sense of this
I wonder how it all plays out for him

I count the days for him to see
All in this world that he can be
Maybe it’s me who sees the light
Rather get burned by something bright

I don’t know how to get us back
I don’t know how to make sense of this
I wonder how it all plays out for him
I don’t think I could recognize
I don’t think you’re the man I miss
I wonder how it all plays out for him
For him

I find a way and crawl to bed
Tired of thoughts running in my head
Maybe I’m just forced to fight
Hike up my skirt
And lose my tights

I don’t know how to get us back
I don’t know how to make sense of this
I wonder how it all plays out for him
I don’t think I could recognize
I don’t think you’re the man I miss
I wonder how it all plays out for him
For him

I think that you want the best
Not for yourself but all the rest
What about you and what about me
Didn’t you know my heart still beats
For you
For him
For him
For him
Track Name: My Disclaimer
I take myself out on you
I take myself out on you
Cause you’re to blame

I can’t do nothing right (I can’t do nothing right)
I can’t do nothing right
I separate from light

Are you the one that I want?
Are you the one that I need?
Are you the one that I feel like having?
Are you the one I should see?

I take myself out on you
Cause you’re to blame
I take myself out on you
Cause you’re to blame

You took the better years from me
And now you’d love to set me free
A conversation I would love to sort it out
Maybe the tears I cry will make you stay

And nothing’s what it seems
And you don’t even know me
My heart just breaks
My tears fall down to the floor

You take up all the room you need
You know that nothing’s what it seems
A conversation I would to sort it out
Maybe the tears I cry will make you stay

And nothing’s what it seems
And you don’t even know me
My heart just breaks
My tears fall down to the floor

And nothing’s what it seems
And you don’t even know me
My heart just breaks
My tears fall down to the floor

And nothing’s what it seems
(I start to hold my breath)
And you don’t even know me
(But then you take my hand)
My heart just breaks
(Watch you leave)
My tears fall down to the floor
Track Name: Replacing the Stars
Look at me, I banished you
From my thoughts, you stole a few
Take some space inside my mind
Never won my race with time

I fold my wings and start to run
Replacing the stars with the sun
The things I’ve done

Thought some space could unify
Toss my fears into the sky
Gave it all, and gave it then
Gave my heart so it could mend

I fold my wings and start to run
Replacing the stars with the sun
The things I’ve done
The things I’ve done

Camouflage your iron door
Thought we could be something more
Pack my bags and face the tide
Thought that you would stand to fight

I fold my wings and start to run
Replacing the stars with the sun
The things I’ve done
The things I’ve done
The things I’ve done
The things I’ve done

I know you’re scared that we’re loosing
What god could keep on believing?
I look into whatcha doing
No mind to what you are choosing
I know that we are all the same
Our tears fall onto our face
For the things we’ve done
For the things we’ve done
For the things we’ve done
For the things we’ve done
Track Name: In Some Airports
I got bad news today
I’ve got enough up on my wrong side
I slapped my face today
Cause, it’s all just black and white

But the longer that I stay
The more I seem to change
My walls are falling now

I can’t take it anymore

I heard your words today
Did you think I’d be okay then?
I bought my life today
Cause, I sold off all your lies

Cause the more Im finding out
My world just fills with doubt
My world is falling now

I can’t take it anymore

I thought I knew you so well
I thought you never could hide from me
And I
Thought you never could lie to me
I think I’ve heard enough.
I think I’ve heard enough.
I think I’ve heard enough.

I can’t take it anymore
Track Name: Steal My Birds
You’re back again
Maybe I can find some redemption for you
But you’ll take instead
Maybe suicide will justify your needs

Cause it’s yours for the taking
You love pain so you’re aching

But who
Said you could steal my birds away
Let them loose from this cage
Cage

But you’ll laugh instead
Well maybe you could find something funny for me
But you’ll break those rules
Cause it feels so good to go all the way

Cause it’s yours for the taking
You love pain so you’re aching

But who
Said you could steal my birds away
Let them loose from this cage
Cage

You’re so full of lies
So you take the time
To destroy everything good that’s left
Take me instead

Cause it’s yours for the taking
You love pain so you’re aching

But who
Said you could steal my birds away
Let them loose from this cage
Cage

You’re so full of lies
So you take the time
To destroy everything good that’s left
Take me instead
Track Name: Sybil Vane
What can I do to make you stay?
What can I do to make this go away?

This isn’t right
Can’t you see?
I will do anything, anything, anything
To keep you loving me

What can I do to make this heal?
What can I do to make this disappear?

This isn’t right oh, can’t you see?
I will do anything, anything, anything
To keep you loving me

What can I do to make this change?
What can I do to make you stay?

This isn’t right, oh can’t you see?
I will do anything, anything, anything
To keep you loving me
Track Name: Melancholy Accidents
So you, lost yourself on your way
You thought it might be okay for you
So you, your running full speed ahead
You take up your line instead
So you, feel nothing at all
I feel nothing at all

Time, she’s got a funny way
Of slapping me in the face for you
But I’m liking the way I feel
Swallowing every pill
So I feel nothing at all
I feel nothing at all

So you, you put it all on yourself
You’re numbing your way to help the pain
But you, you’re cutting to deep inside
And that’s not the way to fight
So you, feel nothing at all
I feel nothing at all

Can you keep holding my hand?
Cause I like to pretend
That love just doesn’t let go
I feel nothing at all

So you, your running full speed ahead
You take up your line instead
For you,
And words, they have a funny way of stripping the walls to frames
For you,
So I’m, crossing the white thin line
I’m leaving it all behind
So I feel nothing at all
I feel nothing at all
I feel nothing at all
I feel nothing at all
Track Name: So Easy
You said you’d change the world
And I said, I think you could
You said it’s time to end
And I said, time out is good

So easy to let down
What you’re living for
So easy to forget
That nothing’s for sure
So easy to pack up and move to L.A.
But you make me
Want to stay

To make this work you’ll know where I’ll be
Right by your side
And I take this into myself and I see
There’s no room for pride

So easy to let down
What you’re living for
So easy to forget
That nothing’s for sure
So easy to pack up and move to L.A.
But you make me
Want to stay

So easy to let down
What you’re living for
So easy to forget
That nothing’s for sure
So easy to pack up and move to L.A.
But you make me
Want to stay
Track Name: Monsters
I can be many things
I see them in my dreams
A dream I just can’t ignore
You know how much I need

Oh monsters
They’re only in my dreams
Oh monsters
I know you are for me

I would do anything
So you know I’m worth your time
I can do many things
Convince you you’re mine

Oh monsters
They’re only in my dreams
Oh monsters
I know you left for me

I have done many things
So you know how much I care
I won’t give up right now
My begging keeps you there

I would do anything
I’ll fall in love with fear
Won’t you leave a Monster
I’d like one to be near

Oh Monsters
You left them for me
Oh Monsters
They’re only in my dreams
