about

Reviews:

Its 5am, youre driving home through deserted city street in your parents car that you snuck out of the driveway. Youve been dancing all night and fallen in love at least three times. The sky to the east is just starting to turn from black to deep blue. You feel liberated, exhilarated, free. What are you listening to? Red Wanting Blue.- Performing Songwriter Magazine (June 05)

Track Name: Leaving Behind
Dont try to explain Ive been here before
the phone calls and letters of loved ones
always crying and implying that when
the stormy sides of dreams arrive
I feel the consequences hit but Ive

Ive had enough ive had too much the feeling strains me
ive had too much the feeling drains me with so much at stake

Leaving behind shortcuts to find a long way home
Leaving behind shortcuts to find a long way

Ive tried to escape Im drifting from shore
the vaulve breaks from weight of the loved ones
who leave us gliding, forward and flying out when
the sunnysides of dreams have died i feel the consequences lift but I

Ive had enough ive had too much the feeling strains me
ive had too much the feeling drains me with so much at stake

Leaving behind shortcuts to find a long way home
Leaving behind shortcuts to find a long way

Ive tried to explain, but the right words feel wrong
big mistakes for the well and the loves gone
and now this crying and goodbying

Ive had enough ive had too much the feeling strains me
ive had too much the feeling drains me with so much at stake

Leaving behind shortcuts to find a long way home
Leaving behind shortcuts to find a long way home
Im Leaving behind shortcuts to find a long way
Track Name: Tearing Down Stars
I may be used
I'm not brand new
But I'm not disposable
Like the friendships you use
To block the tears
From heavy years
Oh, what keeps you in the dark
Did you ever even bother to spark a fire

Like our parents said
All fun comes to an end
Is our world
Suddenly unraveling

We're tearing down stars
We got this far and we won't stop
We won't stop
Remember every scar
Made us who we are
And we won't stop
We won't
Hello, hello

Now I don't know
What holds us back
But we should let it go
We save the tears
To keep the souvenirs
Multiplying in the dark so we'll never be able to spark a fire

It's like our parents said
All fun comes to an end
Is our world suddenly unraveling

We're tearing down stars
We got this far and we won't stop
We won't stop
Remember every scar
Made us who we are
And we won't stop
We won't

We were young
We didn't know
So we went down the open road
And we won't stop
We won't

We're tearing down stars
We got this far and we won't stop
We won't stop
Remember every scar
Made us who we are
And we won't stop
We won't stop

We were young
We didn't know
We wen't down the open road
We won't stop
We won't
We were young
We didn't know
(We're tearing down stars)
We went down the open road
We won't stop
No we won't
Track Name: Pride Is A Lonely Blanket (When We Speak)
We can't seem to sleep
With a heart
So overrested
We see stars
Long live the start of the moment
That lasts when we hold it

We can't seem to speak
With a tongue
So roped and twisted, come on
We are the part of the moment
That lasts when we hold it

When we speak
But our words won't let us say so
And we wished we let it all show
We started falling apart
At the heart
We'll be broken 'til the end

We can't even breathe
With lungs
So black and deflated, come on
Goodbye to all of the moments
That die when we forget

When we speak
But our words won't let us say so
And we wished we let it all show
We started falling apart
At the heart
We'll be broken 'til the end

Oh, no, no

When we speak
But our words won't let us say so
And we wished we let it all show
We started falling apart

Oh, when we speak
But our words won't let us say so
And we wish we let it all show
We started falling apart
At the heart
We'll be broken 'til the end

'Til the end
Track Name: Are You Listening
Our conversation piece for the empty-handed
My life has not worked out the way I've planned
Problems have all ended
The answers are all stranded
And the crumbling fortune cookie called my life
I need some space where someone I can hold
Anyone at all
And lock ourselves inside

Things will never change
'Cause no one has meaning for words for long to fizz
Better be brave
'Cause no one cares
Are you listening?

Drunk and standing still as another year ends
Green to red to brown to white and brown to green again
Epidemics have demanded all solutions be abandoned
And Hollywood's fighting for the rights to make the film
And media will all inflate
And critics are sure to hate
And I'm outside waiting in line

Things will never change
'Cause no one has meaning for words for long to fizz
Better be brave
'Cause no one cares
Are you listening?
The sun surrounds
Let's do the drill
I need some space
Where I can shed this skin
And turn my outsides in
And lock myself inside
Things will never change
'Cause no one has meaning for words for long to fizz
Better be brave
'Cause no one cares
Are you listening?

Are you there? Are you there? Are you there? Are you there? Are you listening?
Track Name: The Formula
Square pegs and circle holes
We are the pieces of puzzles that don't ever want to fit in
Bore me with parallels
I'll be perpendicular
I'm watching you from across

We'll never last if we follow the formula
We'll draw outside of the lines just to prove
We are what we are unfortunate scars
But we'll be the ones you hang on to
I'll be your Van Gogh and
You'll be every reason why it made so much sense to lose an ear

We'll never last if we follow the formula
We'll draw outside of the lines just to prove
We are what we are unfortunate scars
But we'll be the ones you hang on to
We'll never last if we follow the formula
We'll break to mold just to show that we could
We are what we are unfortunate scars
But we'll be the ones you hang on to

Show the sign
We are

We'll never last if we follow the formula
We'll draw outside of the lines just to prove
We are what we are unfortunate scars
But we'll be the ones you hang on to
We'll never last if we follow the formula
We'll break to mold just to show that we could
We are what we are unfortunate scars
But we'll be the ones you hang on to
We'll never last
We'll fall apart
We are what we are
We'll never last
Track Name: Sea of Old Friends
Sea of Old Friends
Welcome home

We are strangers now
Everything seems scaled down
Some of us never got out (of here)
Here are some of the best times
social cliques
And old high school charms
Camping out at diners
Pulling false fire alarms
Smoking joints
at homecoming dances
Never fearing all the questions
Happy without any answers
While we were here
We had some of the best times
Swimming in a sea of old friends
I'll be gone

Lost in a nutshell town
Track Name: Spies and Lovers
I've got you in my sights my advisary
Im your indian painted face in feathers
be my cowgirl wrapped with leather and love
look forward to fighting you forever
We are bound by more than just
two hearts living without consequence
this almost changes everything
like promises made in vain

We dont need to settle down we live our lives upside down
to figure out we are just like love and war baby(x2)
We are love and war
Sharing secrets we're both spies and lovers
with these weapons that won't break the skin
pulling triggers bunddled undercover
surviving only cause niether wants to win

We are bound by more than just
two hearts living without consequence
this almost changes everything
like promises made in vain

We dont need to settle down we live our lives upside down
to figure out we are just like love and war baby(x2)
baby, you bring me down

We wake up break up make up fall asleep and do this all again(x3)
we are bound by than just these secrets here, its where we started
come on what we waiting for?
All is fair in love and war
I'll gladly do this all again
I'll gladly do this all again
Track Name: Your Alibi
Sunday morning I arrive
Through the dark and night's disguise
Sunday morning
Baby, I'm your alibi

Dream got out of bed
And made it stand
Screaming out loud
Get your feet on the ground
She said "drop dead"
Stuck in the clouds
That hang around her head

Oh will someone light a candle for me?
Leading to my morning glory

Sunday morning I arrive
Through the dark and night's disguise
Sunday morning
Baby, I'm your alibi
Sunday morning I arrive
Through the dark and night's disguise
Sunday morning
Baby, I'm your alibi

Give and take
And get what you give
The mistake it's easy to die for you
Baby, it's harder to live
Windows down
They keep me awake

Oh, man, will someone light a candle for me?
Driving to my morning glory

Sunday morning I arrive
Through the dark and night's disguise
Sunday morning
Baby, I'm your alibi
Sunday morning I arrive
Through the dark and night's disguise
Sunday morning
Baby, I'm your alibi

I know it don't make sense
Except that this is over
It makes no difference
Except that this is over
Oh yeah

Oh yeah

Conversations with my coffee and cigarettes
She's as far from me as heaven
But it's worth it in the end
I wouldn't be here if it wasn't worth fighting for
And for every mile marker on this interstate
There's a reason I'm still here
And while she still waits

So someone light a candle for every reason she's my morning glory

Sunday morning I arrive
Through the dark and night's disguise
Sunday morning
Baby, I'm your alibi
Sunday morning I arrive
Through the dark and night's disguise
Sunday morning
Baby, I'm your alibi

Yeah, singing yeah
It don't make sense, at all
But I'll drive around all night
Oh yeah
I'm singing yeah
It don't make sense, at all
But I'm driving all night
All night
Track Name: Never Enough
Hospital corners out of order
I am rolling in it
Curse me with a love
If it's an illness then the straight jacket fits
And the feeling will not change

Building monuments 'round every breath that you left for me to find
And every daisy will die in an effort to find if I'm on your mind

Never enough
Of you to keep me satisfied
If you run
I'm right behind
'Cause I'll never have enough of your love

Roll play what you say if you were here
It's all just pretend
Stories in my head repeat again
Until I start to believe in them

I'm building monuments 'round every breath that you left for me to find
And every daisy will die in an effort to find out if I'm on your mind

There's never enough
Of you to keep me satisfied
If you run
I'm right behind
'Cuase I'll never have enough
Never enough
Of you to keep me satisfied
If you run
I'm right behind
'Cause I'll never have enough of your love

Oh, loving you so
Behind these eyes that are brown
There's a sun that goes down just for me

There's never enough, enough, enough, enough of you
There's never enough, enough, enough, enough of you
I could never have enough, enough, enough, enough of you
I could never have enough of you with me behind the walls awake

Listening is never enough
Of you to keep me satisfied
If you run
I'm right behind
'Cause I'll never have enough
Never enough
Of you to keep me satisfied
If you run
I'm right behind
'Cause I'll never have enough, enough, enough, enough, enough, enough of you
I can never have enough, enough, enough, enough of you
I can never have enough of you with me behind these walls awake
Listening, it's never enough, enough, enough, enough of you
I can never have enough
Track Name: Goodbye To The Playground
A wall of frames with no pictures in 'em
It's a sunny day
In a rainy city
I am shameless
Without forgiveness
And sinking like a stone

I was in an ocean once
And life ever since
Feels like a coffee cup

I can't remember
I can't remember
Where I got lost along the way

And memory lay
Became the wreckage on my modern highway
Wait, something special was lost

Friendships and magazines
They're the same to me
Both leafed through then tossed away
Into a pile
Climbing higher and higher
Until we're both out of date

And memory lay
Is now the wreckage on my modern highway
Wait, something special was lost along the way

Everything I've learned
Never told me
The applications of
Experience

We've all got something to hide
It's alright
We've all got something to hide
It's alright
We've all got something to hide
It's alright
We've all got something to hide

Oh, life is a merry-go-round
I think it's better to never be found out
One day everyone says goodbye to the playground
Life is a merry-go-round
And I feel the day when all the kids find out
One day everyone says goodbye
Everyone says goodbye
Everyone says goodbye
