NOT ALONE

Don’t you make me feel alone 

Don’t you make me feel I’m wrong

Without a man to hold my arm

Cause I’m not owned

But that’s nothing wrong

I am on my own

On my own 

On my own

But I’m not alone

I’m not cold

I feel it all

But I am bold 

I take control

Cause life is short 

And love is rare

I am on my own

On my own 

On my own

I am on my own

On my own 

On my own

But I’m not alone

I’m not alone

 

SHALLOW DIGGER

I am a child of the sun

I rise with her when morning comes

She is wiser than I’ll ever be, ever see, ever know

She is wiser than I’ll ever be, ever see, ever know

And I’ve been told I can listen if I’d like

But to her wisdom I am blind

I was born from her light

I am born, I am blind

Shallow digger I am hunting gold, want it all, give me more

Shallow digger I am hunting gold, want it all, give me more

 

LIKE I USED TO

In the blankets, in the sheets, on my bed

I can feel you holding back, going red

From all the lies and the words that you hide

There’s a boulder on your chest from the weight

Of the words that you keep to yourself 

I am staring at your back, you are staring on the wall

You don’t love me like you used to

You don’t love me like you used to

And I don’t love you like I used to 

I love you too much

Your silence reeks of cheating, reeks of her

I can sense her in your mouth on my neck 

And in your screaming at the mention of her name

And your anger spills like bullets to my brain

Like an animal in fright I’m insane 

And I run for cover from your aim in your arms

You don’t love me like you used to

You don’t love me like you used to

And I don’t love you like I used to 

I love you too much

So I stick my brain in the sand 

Watch me fold 

Watch me wither

I stick my brain in the sand

Watch me fold

Watch me fold

Watch me fold

You don’t love me like you used to

You don’t love me like you used to

And I don’t love you like I used to

 I love you too much

 

HOW WE USED TO LOVE

I ran into a woman on the sidewalk

‘cause I was thinking too much about us

Dreaming of you and all we’ve lost

‘Cause now you’re always so angry

You’re always so sad

You’re mad about everything and everyone and I

I don’t have the heart for that

How we used to love 

I’m afraid for our future

I’m afraid it won’t last

‘Cause you’ve got too many scars to hide

And I haven’t got enough to understand why

Why are you always so sad 

Why are you always so 

Why are you always so sad?

How we used to love 

How we used to love 

How we used to love

How we used to love

 

DARK

Someone told me there is light at the end of every tunnel

Said there’s a light there waiting for me 

But I don’t believe it, not now, not ever

It’s always dark when I go home

I am the dark one in my bloodline

I fear my shadow like a beast

It’s a lingering mellow that won’t leave me 

I fear one day it’ll swallow me whole 

And at times I pray for the darkest days 

Oh to swallow me so that I can’t pray

For the better days oh to come my way

Cause I don’t believe in them

No I don’t believe in them 

 

FIX YOU

Every word you say 

Poison in my blood

But there’s a fire in my veins

When you say you’ll stay

With your hands on my chest

Your lips on my neck

And you say “I’m broken”

“Oh baby, I’m broken”

ch: I can’t fix you

But I want to try

I can’t fix you

v.2: You say you believe in actions, not words

But I don’t want to believe yours

They hurt too much

And It lingers in my head 

Maybe everything you’ve said are lies

All lies

ch: I can’t fix you

But I want to try

I can’t fix you

Br: If we leave this alone 

Will we be on our own

If we leave this alone 

Will we be on our own 

Alone 

ch: I can’t fix you

But I want to try

I can’t fix you

But I want to

I want to 

I want to 

I want to 

I want to try 

BURIED IN TREASURE

He sleeps in a corner with 13 cats

A blanket of litter, the air stenched and bitter 

A dragon guarding his gold 

His house is a cave full of useless things

Pictures in pieces lie scattered in bins

But to him they’re diamonds and dreams

ch: And he will stay there ‘til the end of his days

Gathering memories in trashcans and trays

Days are wasted in a careless world 

And salt is burning my gaze

As I watch him wither away

Buried in treasure

v2: His fingers are trembling through dresses and skirts 

Searching through mountains of sweaters and shirts 

For a sign or the smell of her smile

To keep them together, to keep her alive

So he won’t remember the day when she died

As his heart oh it travels back in time 

ch: And he will stay there ‘til the end of his days

Gathering memories in trashcans and trays

Days are wasted in a careless world

And salt is burning my gaze

As I watch him wither away 

Buried in treasure

Br: He tries to change 

Stays the same 

Passes time in a haze

He’s a broken clock

His years are lost

Lost 

ch. x 2

 

CAROLINE

Caroline’s reflection doesn’t match it’s mate

Blinks in vain, because the image stays the same 

The mirror’s careless to the hollow gaze

Staring blankly without a trace of hope to lean on 

v. 2: Caroline plays his part so perfectly

With bows and pearls, he’s dressed in someone else’s dream 

Prays to change what’s carved in stone

But desire never leaves his heart alone

ch: Will he always be alone?

Behind bars, hiding scars and playing parts

He has the right mind in the wrong body

v.3: Caroline is dreaming of a different life

Where his frame is made to match his mind 

Cause to him it’s a simple choice

He wants to be like the other boys 

But like a bird without it’s wings

He is caged without the means to fly and so he sings

So he sings

ch: Will I always be alone?

Behind bars, playing parts and hiding scars

With the right mind in the wrong body

The right mind in the wrong body 

 

BULLET

You're like a bullet in my chest

Your aim is perfect

Every time I lay myself down for you

I paint a circle on my chest

To make it easier for you to aim just right

ch: And I lie down and wait 

I lie down and wait

Like bait laid out in the woods

v. 2 I draw our memory in the snow 

Willing it to freeze

for the frost to bite your tongue 

But you’re a howler, you’re a wolf 

And in the dead night 

I swear I hear you calling for me 

 ch: And I lie down and wait 

I lie down and wait

I lie down and wait 

Like bait laid out in the woods

I’m bait laid out in the woods
