Track Name: Trojan Horse
they say aw babe ya got a face to launch a thousand ships
any man would want to start a war, just to hold those hips
they say the devil made me do it
you looked good and yeah you knew it baby

now tell me one more time, is my face your loaded gun
are my legs a call to battle, do my eyes have your will undone
don’t you use my lips to explain
my body won’t be held to blame

and i’m not so sure that samson didn’t cut his hair himself
and i’m not sure sirens sing that well at all
and achilles blamed his momma for his ole weak heel
i tell you what someone else always starts your war
but my face won’t be your trojan horse

jolene she had that ivory skin that set yours on fire
cleopatra had that silken voice to fill you with desire
hester wore that scarlet a;
john’s head was brought to salome

and i’m not so sure that samson didn’t cut his hair himself
and i’m not sure sirens sing that well at all
and achilles blamed his momma for his ole weak heel
i tell you what someone else always starts your war
and i’m not so sure that samson didn’t cut his hair himself
and i’m not sure sirens sing that well at all
and achilles blamed his momma for his ole weak heel
i tell you what someone else always starts your war
but my face won’t be your trojan horse
but my face won’t be your trojan horse
Track Name: Same Boat
if you’re not safe, by god, i don’t want to be
if you are cold, i want to feel that freeze
if you are sick, well i don’t want to complicate
you getting well, so i’ll just wait

i wanna be
be in the same boat, be in the same boat,
be in the same boat now
be in the same boat, be in the same boat,
be in the same boat now

if the rain falls, i want us to both get wet
if you are poor, i’ll just add it to my debt
and if the wind blows, we will both hear that train
if it picks you up, i won’t be left on this terrain

i wanna be
be in the same boat, be in the same boat,
be in the same boat now
be in the same boat, be in the same boat,
be in the same boat now

i cannot be (be in the same boat now), be always where you are
and worry free, knowing that you’re never far
i’ll have to trust that you can guide your boat through any sea
you try and paddle straight, until you get back to me

be in the same boat, be in the same boat,
be in the same boat now
be in the same boat, be in the same boat,
be in the same boat now

be in the same boat, be in the same boat,
be in the same boat now
be in the same boat, be in the same boat,
be in the same boat now

if you're not safe, by god, i don't want to be
Track Name: I Will Love
i was walking in a dark house
the floors were creakin' for the last hour
they said they loved me, what does that mean
yeah they only speak when i am pacing

you look like a road at night
you look like a map
you look like a headlight
you look like a trap
you look like someone i might come to know
and i am not falling but
you look like home

and i am at your door, i am a rolling stone
so many times before that moss can't find a home
i will dot your i's, i will cross your t's
but they won't lay a hand nor mark on me

you look like a windshield
beaten with rain
you look like a hotel bed
you look like pain
you look like home cooking and i can breathe that in
and i am not falling but
you look like a win

(leave space for violin bridge) go straight into progression twice through

so the moon is up, and i'm at your door
there's some kind of peace found here on your floor
so curl against me, my belly to your back
let's tell secrets, going tit for tat

you look like atticus
you look like scout
you look like a good time
you look like doubt
you look like you could fit me like a glove
and i am not falling now
but i will love
and i am not falling now
but i will love
and i am not falling now
but i will love
Track Name: Bound To
you don't have to tell me i'm pretty
somebody else is bound to
you don't have to put your arms around me
somebody else is down to
don't have a right to what you don't claim
don't get the light of anothers flame
you don't have to tell me i'm pretty
somebody else is bound to

you don't have to tell me i look nice
i can look in the mirror
you don't have to tell me i'm kind
i see my heart clearer
you don't have to laugh at my jokes
you don't have to help me into my coats
you don't have to tell me i'm pretty
somebody else is bound to

i'm going to go out dancing
you don't have to join me
you don't have to reach for my hand
that will not destroy me
someone will ask to cut a rug
and i may choose to say yes
and if they don't, i'll dance alone
cause i'm wearing my best dress

i may get a little bit lonely
only for a minute
but i'm a clever girl got my wits about me
i'll know how to spin it
i like the way i look tonight
i like the way i love i like the way i fight
so you don't have to tell me i'm pretty
somebody else is going to
Track Name: Move Along
thirty years to get where i was going
thirty more to get where i belong
i should have seen it coming
hard to say what i will end up knowing
hard to say if you’ll be there with me
i know i’m tired of running

it’s always harder in your mind
to leave the bad behind

but i’m moving on
if you can’t stand to see me make it
move along
i’m stronger now
and i’m not faking
move along

you thought i’d never make it on my own
you thought that you would have the only say
you thought i wouldn’t trade it
i know that it must drive you kinda crazy
that i’m no longer underneath your thumb
i thought i had to take it

and it’s hard to cut the ties
and leave some good behind

and it’s taken too much time
to finally say goodbye
Track Name: Blood
blood runs thick
blood runs wide
round me till the day i die

forget it once
and i am told
you rue that day til blood runs cold

sit by me
and drink your wine
eat your bread and put it all behind

that phrase you say
stuck in my head
don't gain the world but lose your soul instead

ooh, ooh lord

oh my lord
what have i done
been betrayed by my own love

i taste it there
right on your tongue
as you tell me i'm your only one

ooh ooh lord

hell burns deep
and hell burns bright
i'll send you there before i die

oh my lord
what have i done
i've betrayed my only love

ooh ooh lord

oh my lord
what have i done
been betrayed by my own blood
Track Name: Shoulda Seen The Other Guy
momma said you only want one thing
baby said nobody cares if i sing
but the mirror said i gotta believe
that someone will reach beyond what they see
but the record says more than you speak
and my eyes start to close whenever you preach
you thought at first i wore my heart on my sleeve
but these bloodstains didn’t come outta me

and he said he must’ve done a number on you
yeah but i think i did some damage too
and i know there’s winners and losers sometimes
but there’s casualties of war on both sides
you shoulda seen the other guy

leave a wake behind wherever i go
something new and old and blue and borrowed
the wind is picking petals up off the ground
and pushing my back on out of this town
you might be thinking that my smile is kind
it’s the same one i wore when i got this black eye
i know you said you’ll help me make this right
but i reaped every scar and i earned every stripe
Track Name: Breathe
nothing else is happening
except you standing there
holding the world together
in your hands
at the top of the stairs

and here i am just breathing
remembering to breathe
cause it gets stuck in my chest
when i listen to you
read

oooooh

i wonder where you've gone to
when you close your eyes
are you closer to me
or gone far away
without goodbyes

oooooh
oooooh
oooooh

when you catch me singing
the song i'm singing here
it's for colors
it's for lines
and for you my dear

ooooooh
oooooh
ooooooh

say you are beside me
but be
say you are beside me
but be
Track Name: 1, 2, 3
un, deux, trois, i'm the best you ever saw
the words come so easily
you've written it down spread it all around the town
and now you're reciting it to me

eins, zwei, drei, go on and dry your eye
you never heard what i said
the things you say like a one act play
and well you just were so well read

baby, baby

uno, dos, tres, how you spend your days
making this your salvation
when you finally heard your pretty little bird
you gave her up you're done

baby, baby

one, two, three, no you won't miss me
you'll find another smile
i can't say i'll miss the way you kissed me
just so i'd be on your file

baby, baby, baby, baby
Track Name: When It Feels Right
i don't know about the chords i play
but i know when they sound like your face
i don't know all the keys i sing in
but i know when they sound like your skin

ooooooh

i don't know all things i should
but i know that i am misunderstood
i don't know all the steps to this dance
but i know i could use a second chance

when it feels right
when it feels right
it's all fine

but when it feels wrong
when it all goes wrong
i can feel it

oooooooh

ooooooh

oooooooh

i don't know about the chords I play
but i know when they sound like your face
Track Name: Let It Burn
who I am, who you are
is all it takes to leave us with
so many scars
what I say and what I do
never seem to be enough, enough for you

and all these things that I despise
I see hiding, hiding
in their words to you, and in their replies
don't try to hide it, don't try to lie
and we can't let it go

let it burn
let it burn
let it burn love

I feel it burn that inner fire
everything felt, but nothing desired
purified or damned by the flames
but none that I, that I wanted
and we will lay it down

let it burn now love
let it burn out love
let it burn

let it burn now love
let it burn out love
let it burn

I'm laying my soul open
you're still choosing sides
but it's never mine, no it's never mine
and holding on to chances that you'll make this right
it doesn't hurt your heart, it wounds mine

so let it burn, let it burn love

let it burn now love
let it burn out love
let it burn

let it burn now love
let it burn out love
let it burn

ooooo
ooooo

let it burn
let it burn out love
let it burn
let it burn
