Track Name: Demons and You
Demons and You
Come up, she said
I’m feeling broken
My head, she holds it
You found yourself back here again
Don’t do it, I said
Please put it down
On the ground, it’s too heavy
To find yourself up in the clouds

The truth is everybody knows
Nobody cares
It’s not what you advertise they remember
It’s the truth in the love in the eyes that you stare

I’ll fix it, the darkness
Love to give you
Tomorrow, I won’t lose
To the war between the demons and you
Walk away, she said
I’m not turning
Around, we’ll go
Until you feel love here alone
Track Name: Rollercoaster
Rollercoaster

I’ve been waiting
In this line
A wonderland
Press replay again
So slow with you
An evening groove
Each step closer
To this rollercoaster ride

A morning kiss
To calm your breath
The sun falls under
No more tears in your hands
At the top
Of this wooden frame
We’ll ride home
On this rollercoaster ride

I’ll carry you to the room
Slowly taking curves
As I fall deep with you
And travel along your skin
The air begins to roll
Along the tracks we’ve laid
As we hold on to this rollercoaster ride

Don’t close your eyes
Enjoy the ride
Come sit closer
And I’ll hold you now
There is not much time
Before we find
We’re back in line
On this rollercoaster ride
Track Name: Caught in Amber
Caught in Amber

You’re lost in the world again
You need to find your north
Stars seem so out of place
The dust you left me for
Eyes turning for a grin
These lies they tell themselves
Slung across these bar room shelves

Pulled into your story
Feeding me your lines
Rewrite the glory of a younger kind
Hold on to your truth
And I’ll hold mine
Caught up in the amber this time

Overcompensate your face
To hide the war that’s done
You built your home
With sticks and stones
Where no moon could be hung
You all brought your daggers here
Dull and in repose
Take a bow
The curtain’s closed

Pulled into your story
Feeding me your lines
Rewrite the glory of a younger kind
Hold on to your truth
And I’ll hold mine
Caught up in the amber this time

All in all we write the pages
Hanging on is how we make it now
Track Name: Love Hope Strength
Love Hope Strength

Turning wrong turns into right
Climbing for a change
Come to you with dreams in my veins
Turning now into forever
Give time a run for its life
Come to you with strength for the pain

Need a little Love
Have a little hope
Give a little Strength
To the ones that need it most

Turn right into another morning
Going to pull on through
Come to me with your fight in your veins
Could me next to you
In this room around the world
Come to me with life in your veins

Need a little Love
Have a little hope
Give a little Strength
To the ones that need it most
We’re no longer alone

Looking for
Backdoor gamblers
Front door kickers
Grit your teeth
Life givers
Pick yourself uppers
Give to others
Just a few brave
Sisters and brothers

Need a little Love
Have a little hope
Give a little Strength
To the ones that need it most
You’re no longer alone
Track Name: Mary
Mary

Looking for answers in some burnt grass
Nothing left of that home
A broken women, when her love was lost
Never liked to sing alone

Found a silver dollar made in 45’
Next to a ring made of gold
I thought it would be enough to get her through this
Not fifty miles from the road

Oh Mary we heard you cry
Oh Mary when times were low
Oh Mary there is nothing left here
We can still hear you singing from the road

I saw smoke paint the sky for miles
My shoes weighed heavy from the hurt
All the nights away from the one I loved
Only to come home to dirt

Oh Mary we heard you cry
Oh Mary when times were low
Oh Mary there is nothing left here

I never meant to be gone for so long
Leave behind an empty bed
I can still hear the singing
The voices that danced in her head

Oh Mary we heard you cry
Oh Mary when times were low
Oh Mary there is nothing left here
Can still hear you singing from the road
Oh Mary it’s time to go
