We Are Bound 04:10
We’re the fire that burns us And the cuts that make our scars We are the love that heals us We're the space inside the stars We are the freed that jails us When we pass our judgement down We are the minds that teach us And the ties that keep us bound And if we’re not down to make it for each other Then we’re not bound to make it on our own You know that we are bound, we are bound By love and loving one another We are the joy that lifts us And the heavy load we bear We are the songs that move us all the pieces that we share We are the hands that calm us When no solace can be found But we're the wars that kill us The only ones who keep us torn If we’re not down to make it for each other Then we’re not bound to make it on our own You know that we are bound, we are bound By love and loving one another If we’re not down to make it for each other Then we’re not bound to make it on our own We are bound by loving one another We are more than each of us alone

I’m gonna write a song to show my love A ballad from my heart cuz he’s the one I’m thinking of I’m gonna write a song to show my baby My sweet sweet, sweet, sweet cuddlebug has made me goddamned fucking crazy Do you know what I’m thinking….. Yeah, he’s the one that I’ll be keeping. I’m gonna take some pictures for my man Wearing sexy lingerie I’ll post on my Instagram I’m gonna show my baby that’s he’s mine, mine, mine With everything I’ve got I’ll keep him burning up inside All the meals I’ll be missing….. But he’s the one that I’ll be kissing. Till death do us part I’ll keep you for my own Till death do us part gonna keep you right beside me Until death do us part you’re mine and mine alone Until death do us part yeah, I’ll keep you for my own I’ve kinda lost my mind for my new guy He turns me inside out and makes me feel like I can fly I’m thinking about a ring so we can tie, tie, tie This bow into a knot forever living side-by-side Do you hear what I’m saying? Book the chapel bells are ringing. Till death do us part I’ll keep you for my own Till death do us part gonna keep you right beside me Till death do us part you’re mine and mine alone Until death do us part yeah, I’ll keep you for my own Till death do us part I’ll keep you for my own Till death do us part gonna keep you right beside me Till death do us part you’re mine and mine alone Until death do us part yeah, you’re my sweet sweet! Till death do us part I’ll never let you go Till death do us part show you that I fucking love you Till death do us part you’re mine and mine alone Until death do us part yeah, I’ll keep you for my own

Round and round the light keeps Shining moving me to chase you down Squeeze these veins my heart is beating Hard with fuel to make you love me I’m the fool who keeps believing You’re the one to save me from the Violent flapping of my own wings Don’t watch me beat myself to death Against the light Against the light that promised so much Not with words but lullabies your Swooning swaying swinging branches My eyes reach but you’re too high. Flying in and out of light and Shadows calling me to sleep these Battered wings I’ve carried on My back for what feels like centuries Against the light Around and round this light I’m flying Banging loudly into the night Torn and broken, but not beaten I will throw myself again, and again and again Against the light

Broken 02:43
I know you like me broken and broken I have been The words are never spoken since you picked me up again I begun believing that I could maybe be someone You tell me I’m so broken so this might make you come un-done I’m not so into sharing this secret I will keep You go on thinking how I’ll fall apart if you would leave It might have been true you saved me - i saved you too But now I know I need to go before I let you take the final piece of me to break Then fall apart for you to say “I knew that you could never change” But I don’t have to prove it to you I don’t have to prove nothing to you I’m not staying broken for you Proving it to me is the least I can do Tell me the story of when you found me black and blue It seems so funny the lengths that you would go to to keep insisting there’s nothing only darkness here And in my weakness I’d be wishing that I could just disappear You say you need me broken but something’s happening I know I’m changing and I know this changes everything And now I’m talking but I don’t think you’re listening And now I know I need to go before I let you take the final piece of me to break And fall apart for you to say “I knew that you could never change” But I don’t have to prove it to you I don’t have to prove nothing to you I’m not staying broken for you Proving it to me is the least I can do I can fix me, I can fix me But I don’t have to prove it to you I don’t have to prove nothing to you I’m not staying broken for you Proving it to me is the least I can do

If a line could save me if it were so easy Would it be you saving me? I could let you court me with flowers ask me And I might say you can take me home Don’t listen to a word I say - don’t ask if you can stay You walk away just close your eyes If a heart could save mine I’d say to save time Won't you please just save yourself. Love, love, love - I’m not gonna do it Love, love, love - Don’t even hold my hand Love, love, love – I won’t fall back into it Love, love, love - Just turn away and say you understand. Remote, resisting my distance might seem Like I don’t care or I’m not trying Untallied pieces I find in all kinds of places On the inside I’m still crying Don’t show me your sweet face or tell me everything will be ok You just walk away and close your eyes If I let you save me I know it’d save you But you’ve got to let me save myself. Love, love, love - I’m not gonna do it Love, love, love - Don’t even hold my hand Love, love, love – I won’t fall back into it Love, love, love - Just walk away and say you understand. Don’t show me your sweet face or tell me everything will be ok You just walk away and close your eyes Even though you’ve thrown the line you can’t save this broken heart of mine So save yourself the time and say you haven’t fallen for me If it were so easy I’d let you love me I’d tell you that I’ve fallen for you too. Love, love, love - I’m not gonna do it Love, love, love - Don’t even hold my hand Love, love, love – I won’t fall back into it Love, love, love - Just look at me and say you understand. Say you understand...

Spiders, fire Water clear enough to see the shark Deep cuts, tumors And the snakes that make their way beneath my sheets Liver failure after all these years of alcohol Perfect figure The lies that have us brainwashed to think there’s such a thing Of everything out there To be without you here That’s my greatest fear Black holes, zombies Swimming naked through a school of fish Poison, voodoo Ghosts that wait for me to fall asleep Faulty wiring Oh what a way to go... death by electrocution Of everything out there Of all the stuff out there To live without you here That’s my greatest fear Quick sand, earthquakes And the tidal waves they make Heatstroke, starving The warming of the earth will make it unforgiving Violence, killing The world has gone bananas and you’re the only thing that matters Of everything out there All the crazy shit out there To live without you here That’s my greatest fear

If there was such a thing as love I’d ravage it, devour it I’d use it up until it’s gone Just a shell of love Beaten down, a memory of I could be with you and fall in love And I would mean it, every word of it But to hang on and not let go When the day is done Can we let forever come. When love turns your heart inside out And the fire is sinful and hot A fast melting wick at the core Finding what love really is... and is not You know, I want to believe in love I’ve never seen love the forever love Like the stars above Or a dream Of never ending love I’ve only seen on screen

The Digger 03:55
Dig. Dig deep. Deeper. And deeper still Dig like you mean it and you need it more Than anything else that you’ve needed before The further down and the deeper you go the Dark disappears and the lightness will grow. Don’t pack your bags yet this might take a while You’ve got layers upon layers to get through and file away So dig when you’re tired and you can hardly go on just know it might not lead anywhere who knows what you’ll find But be sure to leave all your fantasies, dreams and tangible items you’re used to Far behind. Where the phoenix is born as the digger you meet the core The beginning of you the truth you’ve not know before The fire makes the flame and everything starts with a bang. Just dig. Dig deeper still. There’s no ending, beginning or bottom or top until The journey has been taken by many and many have fought just to lose or to finally give up It’s a tunnel through time as seen only by you an ugly and beautiful reflection pool. Where the phoenix is born as the digger you meet the core The beginning of you the truth you’ve not know before The fire makes the flame and everything starts again And you know it never ends till you get to heaven – and if you find hell, well, Then just dig deeper still.

I was never taught to turn and run I was never told to turn and run Nobody ever said to turn and run I will jump with all I got I will fall many times I have fallen many times I will fall so many times But I’m always gonna get back up There will be lots of lessons learned They’ll be tons of lessons learned They’ll be so many lessons learned And I’ll use them all day long With them I’ll build a bridge home With them I’ll build a bridge home With them I’ll build a bridge home It’s always gonna lift me up. It’s always gonna lift me up. It’s always gonna lift me up. It’s always gonna lift me up Cuz all the things I’ve done I’ve carried each and every one Place it with the rest of them and build myself the most fantastic bridge Cuz they’re the things I’ve done and yeah I’ve had some fun And I will keep collecting them until I’m done there’s nowhere else to run Crossing that bridge a lifetime Crossing that bridge a lifetime Crossing that bridge a lifetime I’m gonna make it to the other side Pave my way like a stepping stone Place these down like a stepping stone Gonna keep making that bridge home It’s always gonna lift me up It’s always gonna lift me up It’s always gonna lift me up It’s always gonna lift me up You can say it’s your way You can say that I’ve been led astray you can tell me that shit everyday It’s only gonna lift me up It’s only gonna lift me up It’s only gonna lift me up It’s only gonna lift me up Cuz all the things I’ve done I’ve carried each and every one Place it with the rest of them and build myself the most fantastic bridge Cuz they’re the things I’ve done and yeah I’ve had some fun And I will keep collecting them one by one by one until I’m done!

Hurricane 03:23
When you came along like a storm blowing wild Then when you went away like a storm moving on I never saw you coming I never had a warning sign You were the perfect storm and you hit me at the perfect time Oh, the damage you brought Oh, with you when you came Oh, right through me, you came through me, through me like a hurricane When you came along like a fire burning wild And when you went away like a fire put out by the rain I never saw you coming I never had a warning sign You were the perfect storm and you hit me at the perfect time Oh, the damage you brought Oh, with you when you came Oh, right through me, you came through me, through me like a hurricane

Jean shorts and our tan leather feet On the hot tar in the summer Before all the drinking Before all the boys and their Chevelles The playin' cards we jammed in The spokes of our bikes And then booking down the sidewalks Of our neighborhood at night And the air tasted sweet Like diesel and weeds Oooohhh... Chain link fences dividing up The shotgun homes Before we needed reasons And after he was gone We were stretched out on the vinyl seat With all the windows down Being cradled by the Plymouth Coasting into our new town And the air tastes like home Like Windsong and cigarette smoke Oooohhh... In my midwestern dream It feels like a movie that we’d seen Climbing to the top of hill behind the Dairy Queen The drive-in movie theater’s big screen Our AM radio we held between Oooohhh… Before divorce and money We didn't even know those words We knew nothing would ever hurt us In our little west side world And before somebody told us We never knew that we were poor And we had fearless feats of glory With nobody keeping score And before the final breath Of all our heroes as they aged We lived free of ever knowing That the world would someday change And before we had to know In which direction we should go We were happy in the backseat just to feel the warm wind blow And the air tastes like home like Windsong and cigarette smoke.

Lover you don’t know it But I’m living on the edge here Maybe giving us the chance or Even telling you goodbye But there isn’t anyone else Not a difference of opinion But I think it really might be that I’m actually and totally beside myself in love With you, but don’t make me say it With you, I don’t want to say it With you, you‘re making me say it I..... It wouldn’t be your fault if You told me you were leaving These changing of conditions Frankly make it hard to breath And maybe you don’t feel it But I thought you did last night And the only reason I would ever say it to your face is if I thought you felt the same Last night, that’s the only reason Last night, well not the only reason But last night, is one good reason I would even say those words. Because it feels like a miracle when I’m wrapped up in your arms It feels like a beautiful show of shooting stars It feels like a miracle has been sent from up above This feels like, feels like, just like, just like love… Oh I’ve said too much now I can feel you pull away But maybe I can win you back By saying it was all a mistake You were right about the timing’s wrong The baggage from the other one Still lingers in your heart I should have kept it to myself so wait can I take it back? So wait, I didn’t mean it I guess, I did not mean it Oh no, I didn’t mean it, unless you feel it too Do you love me, too? Because it feels like a miracle when I’m wrapped up in your arms It feels like a beautiful show of shooting stars It feels like a miracle has been sent from up above This feels like, feels like, just like just like love

Hold my hand and walk with me You’re dear to me don’t you know Look into my eyes today Remember them in your sleep, in your sleep. Hold my hand and walk with me Through our neighborhood under the snow The Christmas lights glow in the snow, in the snow See my face when I’m old We’ll grow old we’ll grow old Holding hands in the snow, we’ll grow old. Hold my hand and walk with me Through our paradise under the sky The Southern Cross high Gravity hold us tight Pass the stars as we float Through the snow, holding hands Holding hands in the snow we’ll grow old Holding hands in the snow we’ll grow old We’ll grow old holding hands in the snow Through our paradise underneath the sky See the Christmas lights See the Southern Cross underneath our stars As our constellation floats Leaving gravity keep a hold on me…. We’ll grow old Holding hands
