Track Name: Lullaby
Crawl and I sleep
I can stand, I am tall
No surprise in my thought
I am poised, I am strong
There's no movement at all
In my loins, in my calves

I am lost
I am flawed, I am scarred
I'm a flake, I'm a fraud
But my self hate is bland
There's no progress in that
Leave that book on its shelf

When I lay down to sleep
Things that bother me keep
Showing up in my dreams
Track Name: I Won't Cry Over You
I won't cry over you
My eyes are as dry as they were in the summer
I won't mourn very long
You'll be replaced in two weeks by another

Maybe you're a coward or you really don't want me
Either way I'm just a bit bored of reasoning
I should be glad in the least that you don't wanna use me

I saw stars over you
I wasn't mistaken I see something sacred around you
I am partial to you
I misread connections I hope that I did not undo them

Maybe you are flattered or maybe you are just peeved
Either way it's hard to not think something's wrong with me
I should have kept all my thoughts to myself, but I rarely ever do
If you can forget all the things that I have said
I promise I'll never mention this again
I have a habit of being too honest
I doubt that you cannot see past that

Maybe you're a coward or you really don't want me
Either way I'm just a bit bored of reasoning
I should be glad in the least that you don't wanna use me
Track Name: Sight and Sound
The sight, the sound
Of the words leaving my mouth
I've said the wrong thing again

The way he looked
And then his lower lip shook
Now I am watching his face thinking, what have I done?

The way he looked
And then his lower lip shook
Now I am watching his face as he's coming undone
Track Name: Give Me Your Love
When you are next to me
I can not feel the ground beneath
I only can perceive your hand
It's making circles on my blouse

When you are next to me
I can not see, I can not speak
I only know I need you so
You are my world, my second home

Give me your love
Don't hold out on me, don't hold out on me
Give me your love
Don't hold out on me, don't hold out on me

Give me your love
Don't hold out on me, don't hold out on me
Give me your love
Don't hold out on me, don't hold out on me
Give me your love
Don't hold out on me
Track Name: Don't Go
Don't, don't, don't go
Don't, don't, don't go

My temperature's rising, a fever's begun
My heart rate's increasing for you are the one
And when I am with you I forget my name
For I could be anyone if you would stay

Don't, don't, don't go
Don't, don't, don't go

My joy has extended as far as the sun
My longing for you is an insistent hum
My fingers are sensitive just to your touch
The height of my gladness is almost too much
My senses are dull to all other surrounds
Of you my awareness is so tightly wound
My chores and demands are not shouting as loud
My mind and my body away with the clouds

Don't, don't, don't go
Don't, don't, don't go

Stay by my side
Don't be homesick, it's alright
You've seen I've tried
But I can't let you go, no I can't let you go

Can't let you go, can't let you go
But I can't let you go, can't let you go
Can't let you go, can't let you go
But I can't let you go, no I can't let you go
Track Name: Wednesday Morning
Wake me my darling, in the early morn
Trust in that feeling, it was put there by the dawn
She calls to your core, she calls

Shame for us darling, to stay within these walls
For in here, oh darling, there's an endless void
We can't defeat on our own
We need the dawn

Outside my lovely, there's a greeting on the crisp breeze
Shaking my worry and replacing it with ease
She takes hold of our feeble minds
We grow
Track Name: Free
We can discover what we have got
If we can also see what we have not
There's nothing special given to me
Save for a mind to process misfortune and remain

Free, free, free, free

I am not evil, nor am I good
I am just neutral and trying to do as I should
No competition with my fellow man
And no desire to belittle other women or be better than them

Free, free, free, free

We can discover what we have got
If we can also see what we have not
There's nothing special given to me
You know that I'm, that I'm just trying to be free

Don't know my future, renounced my past
I only have, I have this moment, make it last
I don't believe in the after life
I only try, I try for happiness in mine
Track Name: When
When will relief come
When will it rain on this barren land
When will release come
When will I wake up and be glad
'Cause I'm not old but I am tired
I am clearly uninspired

When will relief come
When will somebody know and love me for who I am
'Cause I'm not playing the game that's going
I'm on a path and I am growing
It is your choice, take it or leave it
It's your last chance to go and seize it

When will relief come
When will I sing a happy song
It's always heartache
There's always something going wrong
So I'll remain alone forever
And all my hopes for love I'll sever
Because the one that I desire is one that I could not acquire

When will relief come
When will it rain on this barren land
When will release come
When will I wake up and glad
You know my heart, it is on fire
But I know hearts, they can be liars
And on that day he was beneath me
I knew he'd break my heart completely

When will relief come
When will it rain on this barren land
When will release come
When I wake up and be glad
My stars are crossed, they are mistaken
And now my faith in them is shaken
Everyone says that he is crazy
And I agree, but that won't change things
Everyone says that he is crazy
And I agree, but that won't change things
