Track Name: Black Eyed
Black Eyed my friend
That's how your days will always end
I'm sorry
You know you can get up and go
Why you waste your time
I just don't know
Just leave babe
Cause slowly your losing your mind
As your heart is breaking
Your melting mine
Don't stay here

I am burning
Don't leave me alone again
And this love is turning
And may go away
my friend

Things may be good over the rainbow

Black Eyed my friend
Take a look around at your dead end
And the walls are growing
Don't cool off in the boiling water
I've got a bag full of love right here
And you can have it

I am burning
Don't leave me alone again
And this love is turning
And may go away
my friend

Things may be good over the rainbow

I suppose you know
I suppose you know
I need you so
And why are you so cold
You're so so cold to let me go

Things may be good over the rainbow (2x)

Chorus
Track Name: Emotional
Do you ever feel like the angel on your shoulder
forgot all about you
And do you ever feel like the girl that you once were
was stolen from you purse
Tell me do you want a lady soldier
to fight on your battle grounds for you
I'm telling you baby don't apologize
for being the sweetest one

And please oh please don't punish me
For being Emotional
And please oh please don't punish me
For being Emotional

Sock it to me darling
I feel your frustration as my tears come tumbling down
And kick me out of this moment as you yell in my face
for expressing myself so deeply
Your losing me so gently with your howling at night
for being the freest one

And please oh please don't punish me
For being Emotional
And please oh please don't punish me
For being Emotional
Track Name: Little Shoes
Little Shoes
In a tiny room with a big life
Little toys for a little boy with a big life
You and me
that 's real love
Catch me with your real love

He flys through the woods
Above the clouds and
In the stars that you read about
He flys through the woods
Above the clouds and
In the starts that you read about

He's a magician
With big decisions
And you'll read about him one day
He's a magician
With big decisions
And you'll read about him one day

Little shoes
What you gonna do with your big life
Stay true to you and stay true to me
In your big life
You and me
that's real love
Splash me with your real love

He flys through the woods
Above the clouds and
In the stars that you read about
He flys through the woods
Above the clouds and
In the starts that you read about

He's a magician
With big decisions
And you'll read about him one day
He's a magician
With big decisions
And you'll read about him one day

Track Name: Mother Nature
Give me what I want now
Give me what I want now

Life proves to be strange and
Love proves to be careless
that's the way it is
and that's the way it's been

Heading to the skyline
Maybe the truth is hidden there
I need to know cuz

I'm heading for a breakdown
I need someone to take down, take down
I'm heading for a breakdown
I need someone to take me down

And I'm just a baby who is stuck in the dirt
Do you think you could pull me out and
Get rid of all the hurt
Don't mean to get in your way Mother Nature
But it appears that I, I'm in danger

All the things that you gave me
Heartache and pain led up to this now
And I understand how
And please know that I forgive you
Do you forgive me too
Mother dear
What happened here?

I'm heading for a breakdown
I need someone to take down, take down
I'm heading for a breakdown
I need someone to take me down

And I'm just a baby who is stuck in the dirt
Do you think you could pull me out and
Get rid of all the hurt
Don't mean to get in your way Mother Nature
But it appears that I, I'm in danger

And though you're a sky away
I'm never too far away from you

And I'm just a baby who is stuck in the dirt
Do you think you could pull me out and
Get rid of all the hurt
Don't mean to get in your way Mother Nature
But it appears that I, I'm in danger
Track Name: Make A Happy Home
Send me through
Through the door
You're picture perfect
Laid out on the floor
Suppose you save me
From within
Suppose you take me
And we win

I need
Happy Things with no reservations
I'm going through
Happy faces
New creations
I'm going to

Don't want to stop here
So don't get in my way
And I will pursue you
All night and all day
We can do this
We can do this
I beg you to stay
I have to have this
I have to have this
And I'll be okay

I need
Happy Things with no reservations
I'm going through
Happy faces
New creations
I'm going to

Put out the fire
The sun is up, so
Warm your face
I'll never go, so
Don't make me leave
This place

The sun is up
The sky is blue
Are you over me
Over you

I need
Happy Things with no reservations
I'm going through
Happy faces
New creations
I'm going to
Track Name: The Day
Cold is the color of this bed
And I heard every word that you said
But nothing really will change for me
I still want you

And on this day
I will find you
And I will say
May I love you

Beat on my drum
1, 2, 3
And carry a pocket full of me
So forever and ever
I may stay
I still want you

And on this day
I will find you
And I will say
May I love you
And you'll turn around
Laughing at me
But don't make a sound
You still love me

I stil want you
Clocks are ticking
I'm still breathing
So I still want you

Oh and on this day
I will find you
Oh and I will say
May I love you
Track Name: Sad Affair
I'm decomposing this love for my mister
I'm crawling on the floor
I need so much more
And it's a sad sad lair
He keeps it cold in there

He don't know it
He don't show it
I am trembling
Need assembling

It's a Sad Affair
What went wrong
And I don't care
I'll play along
It's cold in there
So let me out
You want real love

He's keeping secrets that could kill me
I need a savior now baby won't you heal me
He played a good good game
And I'll never be the same

It's a Sad Affair
What went wrong
And I don't care
I'll play along
It's cold in there
So let me out
You want real love

You say the thrill is gone
So take your bullshit with you
May get along someday
Like hand holding paper mache
There's so much loving air
You're carrying like a burden
Don't need to feel this way

It's a Sad Affair
What went wrong
And I don't care
I'll play along

It's a Sad Affair
What went wrong
And I don't care
I'll play along
It's cold in there
So let me out
You want real love
Track Name: I Feel feat. Carina Round
You don't own me
and you never show me
You won't hold me
and you never sold me

What do you think of my tears dear
You look at them like souvenirs here

And I feel I'm always in your way
And I feel you may leave me someday
And I feel I'm holding onto nothing
And I feel with out you I'll be something

I am wishing that you could listen
And maybe when the sun falls
I won't want you to call
Why can't I be a grown girl
And why can't I see another world
And why can't I love myself
Just like you love yourself

And I feel I'm always in your way
And I feel you may leave me someday
And I feel I'm holding onto nothing
And I feel with out you I'll be something

You have no idea
What I've sacrificed for you
And in the end it's all my fault
I never should have focused on you

And I feel I'm always in your way
And I feel you may leave me someday
And I feel I'm holding onto nothing
And I feel with out you I'll be something
Track Name: No Matter How Much
No matter how much you know me
No matter how much you say you love me
No matter how much I appear that I'm with you
No matter how hard I try I still can't trust you

I've received all the signs and erased the visions
I've been given your lines but muted the meaning
These months pass me by and still I've failed to learn
That after all we've been through I still can't hear you

But oh I'm so sorry
Because this life has made me cruel
And after all of that I realize
Especially you

No matter how much you come to my room
No matter how much you see me as a good friend
No matter how much I appear to love you
No matter how hard I try I still can't trust you

You handed me your selfishness and I threw it all away
You've given me heartache disguised as tough love but it's pain
Tears upon my pillow
I hate to say it but i'd rather live this life alone

But oh I'm so sorry
Because this life has made me cruel
And after all of that I realize
Especially you

Stay or go
But either way it's hard to know
That you and me
Will always be the tide below
Pulling me in
Pulling me in
Pulling me in

But oh I'm so sorry
Because this life has made me cruel
And after all of that I realize
Especially you
