Track Name: Defend
My head’s all over the place
Like the June rain running down your face
As I look around at this space
I’m thinking we shouldn’t have come here.
No one’s closer than that siren’s sound
You laugh and lie back on the ground
I can feel my defenses all creeping down
Knowing that the time has come here.


Shove down the walls, shut out the world
But then someone falls, someone gets hurt
Keep reminding me of who I am
And this time and place I can’t defend


There are test and trials each day
Are you that apple I can’t push away?
Tripping on each word you say
Trembling on that narrow line
Still I stand in my own way
Holding all my happiness at bay
Hoping if I go, you’ll stay
I can’t turn, see what Ill leave behind.


Shove down the walls, shut out the world
But then someone falls, someone gets hurt
Keep reminding me of who I am
And this time and place I can’t defend


Don’t you touch me I might soften
Say you want me once too often
This is somewhere I don’t want to start
Don’t you love me, I’ll just break your heart.


Shove down the walls, shut out the world
But then someone falls, someone gets hurt
Keep reminding me of who I am
And this time and place I can’t defend
Track Name: The Way it Goes
If you wanted something more than this
You should have told me years ago
If you want it, something less than this
Now’s the time to let me know
Cause we’re going somewhere, somehow
and we’re gonna be there before you know
You can believe it, so Ican see it
And that’s the way it goes

If you need it and you can’t find it
You know it’s right here with me
If there’s somewhere you are going
You know just where I’ll be
It’s hard to remember a different forever
That ended years ago
It needed the spaces- 2 separate places
And that’s the way it goes

If it’s dark now in your heart now
Take the light right out of me
If you’re looking towards the answers
Tell me what you see- I can’t be alone now
It’s too cold now
As the pain begins to grow
This is the measure, leaving together
And that’s the way it goes
And that’s the way it goes.
Track Name: Amy (Take Your Night)
Gained the center spot on that hot stage
Lost the compassion of the faces in the dark
The line snapped across the apron, uncrossable.
And once you're on that side,
No one's on your side.

Pull in your wings, take your night
Spin the cloth around you
Safe from the wolf, as he sings
Take your night, take your night.

Money don't buy happiness
It creates expectations of
Perfection, villainy
Power misused and vulnerability abused
So you become what they want
Instead of what you need

Pull in your wings, take your night
Spin the cloth around you
Safe from the wolf, as he sings
Take your night, take your night.

How do you keep what you wanted
When you walked away from who you were?
Turn around, got into shadows,
This is what you're left with,
Uncertainty and solitude.
Track Name: Prettier
You tell your friends I'm doing well
That I like the beach out here
You say I'm working all the time
I've got a good career.

And when I send my picture, you put it in a frame,
So everyone can see
A lie is so much prettier than me.

Successes overnight, the story's not quite right you know
I keep on pushing on
Scream through every song and show

And when I send my picture, you put it in a frame,
So everyone can see
A lie is so much prettier than me.

You ask me on the phone, when I'm coming home this year
And you don't have to say, you hope that when I do I'll stay
This year.

It may not be the dream I had when I was 17
But it's the path I chose, I'll follow where it goes, you'll see
One day you'll get the picture and you won't need a frame to see
This life is so much prettier to me.
Track Name: What I Do
I watch you as you walk away
And I notice something that wasn’t there yesterday
What’s changed?
What makes me want to stay- when I won’t.
I know I’m gonna make this hard on you
That’s what I do

I have this need to own
To take without regard for me alone
Fill all the insecurities I’ve known
I know I’m gonna make this hard on you
That’s what I do

You better walk away while you can
You’ll be just one more broken man
Do you really think you’re safe?

There are things you know
And things you hold inside you can’t let go
Hopes you raise
Wasted hours become wasted days.

You better walk away while you can
You’ll be just one more broken man
Do you really think you’re safe?

I know I’m gonna make this hard on you
That’s what I do.
