Track Name: Wild White
Into the wild, wild white, into the black, the black night,

We’ve got a right to go, we’ve got a right.
Track Name: If I Were
If I, if I were, sort of a braver girl, I would just run away, I would just go,

If I, if I were, a little more lovely, you would still want me, this I know,

So gather everything I can hold onto, leave out anything that might hold me to you,

I’ll do, the things I meant to do, before me and you, we fell into, this inconvenience,

Take, take it, take all the love you make, I’ll watch you run away, I’ll watch you go,

And down in the next town there will be another girl, who will lay down with you, after your show,

She’ll do everything that you ask her to, will you cling to her when she comes for you,

You knew, what you were getting into, when you do the things that you do, and you do,

You do them all the time, you lay me on a line, your words are empty,
I’m not angry, you don’t owe me a thing,

And everything is fine, in the morning, I’ll go softly, you’ll be sorry…

If I, if I were, sort of a braver girl, I would just run away, I would just go,

And if I, if I were a little more lovely, you would still want me, this I know,

So gather everything I can hold onto to, leave out anything that might hold me to you,

I’ll do, the things I meant to do, before me and you, we fell into, this inconvenience.
Track Name: Beggars Can't Be Choosers
I don’t, I won’t, forget that face, those eyes, how your eyebrows they lie,

How your eyes won’t lie, how they betray you to me,

Well I got some other men, but I keep them dangling,

While the room is nice and quiet,

My thoughts they rest on you tonight,

So I made a list of all the reasons why,

You’re not that great, but the truth is,

When I said I didn’t care if you called me, well I, I was lyin,

See you and me, we got this secret thing, that even we, we don’t, speak of,

Well it ain’t love, but it is good enough, you let me breathe, while you, let me see

What it could be.
Track Name: Wrecking Ball
I got the message you left, where you say you’re doing well,

You seemed a bit out of sorts, but then I’m hard to sell,

You got a lot up your sleeves, and you swear you’ll never tell,

Your dreams, the woebegone schemes of a hapless ne’er do well,

But the doors that you seek, they’re never open, they’re always closing in on you,

It’s all your deepest regrets that I get, and you got a, ya ya you got a,

Whole load of shit that you ain’t told me yet, but you still don’t know,

Why the doors that you seek, they’re never open, they’re always closing in on you,

But you keep kissing the wrecking ball, and I’ll put out the fire,

Keep kissing the wrecking ball, and I’ll put out the fire,

Why the doors that you seek, they’re never open, they’re always closing in on you.
Track Name: Venom
I always want to believe it, the pretty things that you speak,

You are the master deceiver, the king of your loose schemes,

And I am one little pawn, in the games that you seek,

A foolish willing witness, to all the havoc you wreak,

You’ve got a poisonous heart, you’ve got a poisonous tongue,

Your venom hides, in words and smiles, your mouth’s a loaded gun,

You always get what you want from me, I never get enough,

You’re always saying all the wrong things, that make me crave your touch,

And then our bed is on fire, there will never be love,

In the space between, our twisted sheets, there’s just a crooked dark spark,

You’ve got a poisonous heart, you’ve got a poisonous tongue,

Your venom hides in words and smiles, your mouth’s a loaded gun.
Track Name: Dead Flowers
You don’t like it when I act crazy, but you ain’t givin’ me much choice lately,

Why wont you come home? You know I hate to be alone.

All your promises, your dead flowers, I gathered them up and planted roses,

All those seeds have grown, but everything’s still wrong.
Track Name: Mexico
I’m gonna make it to Arizona, before this lonesome night is through,

The bright lights of Juarez shine like a beacon, to the left of these weary bones and road,

I wonder if I’ll make it home in this life, when does the searcher hang up the fight,

Seems we oughta be grateful for, anything that turns out right,

All I know, is I long for Mexico,

My dark hair, once long, it drip down my shoulders, and it wrap me, in a place familiar and safe,

I stood there, all woven, til I come to wonder, if I cut it, would my roots come undone,

I wonder when the thrill escapes from the chase, when does the lover lay down her lace,

Restless sleep, for the dreams I keep, over the words I could not say,

I don’t want to live this life alone.
Track Name: In A Blanket
Everybody’s always talkin’, and everybody I guess knows me,

But what they might not suppose, what I might never show,

Is that mostly I come home all alone,

It’s alright, I know we ain’t getting married, and I know that you’ll never love me,

But, just for tonight, I’d like you wrapped up nice and tight, in a blanket, on a bed, next to me,

Well I felt, you creepin’ up my back porch, and I heard you scratchin’ on that screen,

And you brought me a dyin’ rose, and that’s just how our story goes,

You ain’t never gonna keep me or let me go,

But it’s alright, I know we ain’t getting married, and I know that you’ll never love me,

But, just for tonight, I’d like you wrapped up nice and tight, in a blanket, on a bed, next to me,

In a blanket, on a bed, next to me.
Track Name: Hard To Love
You will be hard to love, I know,

Still today I’m gonna lay, down my heart at your throne,

As a simple gift, as a quiet wish, as a prayer for things unknown,

Oh the seeds we sow, given room to grow,

Often lead us back to home, home we did not know,

So if you want it, come and get it, it could happen, if you let it,

Oh I want this, oh I want this,

You will be hard to love, I know,

But your wandering heart is my favorite part,

So you can take your fist, shake up the world in it,

And let the truths of which we be,

Our own masters of, pave a steady road,

That might lead you back to me,

I’ll show you what I know,

So if you want it, come and get it, it could happen, if you let it,

Oh I want this, oh I want this..
Track Name: The World
The world will go on without us, we’re all just racing the hours,

For time, time will devour, every living thing,

The birds, the beasts, the trees, the flowers,

And you and I, we will die,

Oh my God,

I’d like to love like I oughta, I want a life lived with honor,

But I was an awful daughter, lit fires in my wake,

And stoked a flame that trapped me under,

The curling smoke of my shame fill the walls and the hall,

And the rafters wailed under the weight of it all,

And all I could do, was pray don’t fall,

Down on me, I want to be good to you.
