TERRA FILIA / SONGS TO BE SPRUNG

Was the stage too high to climb? Did all the bills go out on time? Was the dream not deep enough? You know you don’t sleep enough So what you didn’t get there first Still hung up on what they say You should be thinking with your heart But your big head’s in the way Don’t worry about it so much Don’t worry about it so much All your life you’re in a hurry Out of breath from all that worry All it’s gonna do is burn a hole inside of you You don’t have to beat yourself up Trying to be somebody else You’re good enough Don’t worry about it so much Was the joke above your head? Are they still mad from what you said? You’re so afraid they think the worst You throw your meanest punch line first Don’t worry about it so much Don’t worry about it so much All your life you end up sorry Sick to death from all that worry When all it’s gonna do is burn a hole inside of you You don’t have to beat yourself up Trying to please somebody else You’re good enough Baby you're good enough Don't worry about it so much Was the stage too high to climb? Did all the bills go out on time? Was the dream not deep enough? You know you don’t sleep enough

Doormat 02:41
Everything I do in this place feels like a mistake Maybe I should run away Would you miss me if I did? Would you miss me if I hid like a kid in a corner of your mind? Everything I say rubs the wrong way Maybe I should learn to talk like you Would you kiss me if I did? Would you love my mouth If you heard your phrases coming through my lips? Well I’m not doing it I’m not going to talk like you Your words aren’t few but they don’t mean a thing to me And I’m not going to talk like them Your friends Since when did they know anything anyway? Maybe I should try some reverse psychology and pack my bags Would you fall in love again? Would you want me back if I said that I would rather just be friends? Maybe you should start thinking about All the things you’ll miss when I am gone You can’t touch that far away You won’t be gratified When there’s no one to let you have your way ‘Cause I’m not doing it I’m not going to be your mat F that! I’m not doing it I’m not going to talk like you Your words aren’t true so they don’t mean a thing to me And I’m not going to talk like them Your friends Since when did they know anything anyway? Hey!

My black and white Don't make your shade of gray Won't stop me painting either way everyday And if it's all so simple Tell me how’d it take three hours To drive that truck three miles up the road? Roses for no reason Breakfast in the bed Kisses in the kitchen Staying home instead Walking by the water Talking that’ll last Roses for no reason Is that too much to ask? That stranger in your eyes Well he had too much to drink It still compromises you No matter what you think Yeah I'm still in love Where does that leave me? Mean to you and screaming through the glass Roses for no reason Breakfast in the bed Kisses in the kitchen Staying home instead Walking by the water Talking that’ll last Roses for no reason Breakfast in the bed Kisses in the kitchen Staying home instead Walking by the water Talking that’ll last Roses for no reason Roses for no reason I want roses for no reason Not too much to ask My black and white don’t make your shade of grey

Make ‘em all feel like this is it Wrapped around your finger They think you’re never gonna quit Give ‘em everything you’ve got until there’s nothing left Learned it from your mama Set a trap inside my chest Isn’t it grand? Isn’t it great? Left me here alone with myself and I’m waiting For the promise of a future that I see is now fading You’re on to something new and I can’t believe (Someone else is having you and I can’t believe I thought that it was true, now I can’t believe) I’m hating how you love Hating how you love Said that you were my girl Was it ever even true? In trade for giving me a whirl I laid it bare in front of you Healed every scar I had Fixed the damage that was done Kicked me to the curb now So I guess I’m not the one Isn’t it grand? Isn’t it great? Left me here alone with myself and I’m waiting For the promise of a future that I see is now fading You’re on to something new and I can’t believe I'm hating how you love Hating how you love I’ll tell you one thing my dear He better never come around here Isn’t it grand? Isn’t it great? Left me here alone with myself and I’m waiting For the promise of a future that I see is now fading You’re on to something new and I can’t believe Someone else is having you and I can’t believe I thought that it was true, now I can’t believe I’m hating how you love Hating how you love Hating how you love

Call me up and suddenly You shine a little light on me I’m silhouetted by the TV Dark and black and white and starry This memory seems to stick Where’d you get the ‘bility To open up and set me free? I’m happily lost in tranquility Dark and black and white and kissing This memory dreams so thick Shine a little light Who gave you the power? Who taught you the key To call in my darkest hour and shine a little light on me? Who gave you the power? The crystalline ability To call in my darker hours and shine a little Shine a little light Shine a little light on me Call me up and suddenly Your human electricity is totally encircling me If I ever fear the missing Your lips are who I’d call for Shine a little light Who gave you the power? Who taught you the key To call in my darkest hour and shine a little light on me? Who gave you the power? The crystalline ability To call in my darker hours and shine a little Shine a little light Shine a little light on me Watch my life sink into storms I’m filling out these stupid forms And told I have to fit the norm It’s cold here love I need some warm Who gave you the power? Who taught you the key To call in my darkest hour and shine a little light on me? Who gave you the power? The crystalline ability To call in my darker hours and shine a little Shine a little light Shine a little light on me Shine a little light Shine a little light

You don’t know how to talk I don’t know how to sing You don’t know what to give I don’t know what to bring You don’t like when it’s cold I don’t like when it’s hot You’re not sure what I am I’m not sure what you’re not We both know what we got We both know what we got So I’m gonna hang in there with you You’re gonna hang in there with me We’re gonna get to that place we’re going to Man is it gonna be something to see I’m gonna hang in there with you You’re gonna hang in there with me I don’t know how to read You don’t know how to write I don’t know when to lead You don’t know when to fight I don’t know where to head You don’t know where to aim I’m not sure why we left You’re not sure why we came I love you just the same Yeah I love you just the same So I’m gonna hang in there with you You’re gonna hang in there with me We’re gonna get to that place we’re going to Man is it gonna be something to see I’m gonna hang in there with you You’re gonna hang in there with me It’s all about what we’re working on It’s all about what we’re working on It’s all about what we’re working on And the misty mountains watch and whisper

Archeology 04:37
Chasing after sunsets To feel something again Naked in a rainstorm Worthy of your skin Souls split apart at birth Opposites attract Faith is a feeling love is a fact And love won’t always be just archeology There’s magic in that stone that holds the sword Someday someone will see Till then take it from me Your love will always be its own reward You thought that rock you found Was a rare and precious jewel You took it into town They said you were a fool Hands callous and raw Digging on the next All that you uncovered was a dirty worthless text But love won’t always be just archeology So much inside of you to be adored Someday someone will see Till then take it from me Your love will always be its own reward Ooh to be so trusting What a beautiful thing Don’t you give it away too quickly Even if he resembles a king ‘Cause you’ll know in your bones When it’s the one who’s worth the ring And love won’t always be just archeology There’s magic in that stone that holds the sword Someday someone will see Till then take it from me Your love will always be its own reward Chasing after sunsets To feel something again Naked in a rainstorm Worthy of your skin

Faith 06:59
Love can be had for a price it seems If we let go of a couple of dreams We are alone anyway What’s the point of you and me? I see it in your eyes What I need to get me by Every one of us is dry And my faith has passed me by Faith has passed me by Don’t look so sad This is only life And she’s looking back at you You were the queen in another time What am I supposed to do? I see it in your eyes What I need to get me by Every one of us is dry And my faith has passed me by Faith has passed me by You used to say What’s wrong with you? And it’s showing in your face Dark and the light are just dreams to me And they’re filling up the space I see it in your eyes What I need to get me by Every one of us is high And my faith has passed me by Faith has passed me by Love can be had for a price it seems If we let go of a couple of dreams We are alone anyway What’s the point of you and me? I see it in your eyes What I need to get me by Every one of us is dry And my faith has passed me by Faith has passed me by Faith has passed me by Faith has passed me by
