Check his phone

I see your face
when he’s talkin’ to you
I see your smile
fills up the whole room
I hear my name
and if it’s comin’ from you
it can’t be good.

With that wicked smile
your eyes flashin’ to me
I hear him laugh
but he don’t dare look at me
And I don’t give a damn
Cuz if you only knew all the things we do

When it’s 3am and you’re sleepin’ alone,
I’ve got his number blowin’ up my phone
In the dark of the night,
it’s my name on his lips
No I ain’t tryin’ to start a fight
but just check his phone…

Yeah, I’ve heard a bit
what you’ve been saying about me
Around this town
I guess it ain’t big enough
But I’m not the kind
to be startin’ nothin’ I can’t win

In the dark of the night
when he’s at my door
and you’re all alone
yeah you’ll never know
that I’m the one he’s screamin’ out to in all of your dreams
No I ain’t tryin’ to start a fight
but just check his phone…

Before you go and run your mouth
you should know where it’s been
-just keep goin’ south
You know, the dark of the night
can’t hide what you want inside
No I ain’t tryin to start a fight
but just check his phone…
No I ain’t tryin to start a fight
but just check his phone…

Siren

Music

All around without a sound
The sky above gasps for life
The water’s crashing o’er the bow
Stinging spray – can’t feel it now

Can you hear it?
Can you feel it?
Can you see it?
Tell me I am not alone…

In the middle of the night,
she’s always there right at your side,
calling to you with her lies
in a voice that mesmerizes…
“Don’t be afraid – you’re not alone
Wherever you are, you’re almost home
Take my hand – it’s time to go
Don’t think too hard – just let go…”

Head in my hands, it’s crashing down
Can barely breathe – can’t get her out

Can you hear it?
Can you feel it?
Can you see it?
Tell me I am not alone…

In the middle of the night,
she’s always there right at your side,
calling to you with her lies
in a voice that mesmerizes…
“Don’t be afraid – you’re not alone
Wherever you are, you’re almost home
Take my hand – it’s time to go
Don’t think too hard – just let go…”

Can you hear it?
Can you feel it?
Can you see it?
Tell me I am not alone…

Can you hear it?
Can you feel it?
Can you see it?
Tell me
I am
not alone…

You can buy me a round

Music

Your smile’s so innocent
like you mean every word
And everyone in this place believes
what they think is in your eyes
But I’m not the one to fall so hard
—I’ve seen it all before
I knew your name when I walked in
—and I fucking know your game

You can buy me a round
—but that doesn’t mean I owe you anything
Pick up your fucking pride off the floor
cuz your daddy didn’t raise aman like that

Who do you think you are
—fucking greatest gift to man?
All the gold and the jewels in this world
can’t hide the emptiness in your eyes
And I’m not the one to fall so hard
—I’ve seen it all before
You can keep your gaze fixed on me
—but I fucking know your game

You can buy me a round
—but that doesn’t mean I owe you anything
Pick up your fucking pride off the floor
cuz your daddy didn’t raise a man like that

And I shouldn’t have to say it more than once
cuz nobody’s asking you to keep on standing over here
You can look if you fucking want
but if you think you’re gonna touch
—Don’t know how you’re gonna lay my body down
when you’re staring up from the ground

You can buy me a round
—but that doesn’t mean I owe you anything
Pick up your fucking pride off the floor
—your daddy didn’t raise a man like that

Wishing well

Music

Made from the smoothest of stone
carved from the coldest of ice
you know where I can be found,
at my wishing well.

Smells of the sweetest incense
drift from the darkest abyss
feel the fire going down,
at my wishing well.

And with each sip, reality,
fades away into my broken dreams
And in the end, against the cold,
I just have myself to hold
So pour me another round
so I can stare down
at my wishing well.

Scenes of perfection in life
in vivid color in my mind
growing stronger as I fall down,
at my wishing well.

And with each sip, reality,
fades away into my broken dreams
The fire inside, dulls my soul,
the only comfort I know on my own
And in the end, against the cold,
I just have myself to hold
So pour me another round
and let me stare down
at my wishing well.

Made from the smoothest of glass
carved from the coldest of ice
feel the fire going down,
at my wishing well.

More than a bridge

Music

The bridges that you burned
the words you left unheard
are haunting me at night
from when you left me on the drive

Now you’re standing in the rain
with that smile upon your face
thinking you can turn around
and walk back in my life
but you burned more than a bridge

Well it took more than a day
but I finally cleared your space
the smell of you brought
all the tears I couldn’t cry that night

And I thought that I was fine
finally living life
until I came across
that photograph from on that day

Your momma still drops by
and all our friends ask why
you couldn’t give your word to me
but you drove off with your ring
while I was still down on my knees

The bridges that you burned
and all the words unheard
burning through my mind
from when you drove away that night

Now you’re standing in the rain
with that smile upon your face
thinking you can turn around
and walk back in my life
when you burned more than a bridge

The bridges that you burned
and all the words unheard
are haunting me at night
from when you left me on the drive

Now you’re standing in the rain
with that smile upon your face
thinking you can turn around
and walk back in my life
but you burned more than a bridge
more than a bridge

I want to

Music

I don’t need you
I don’t need to be at this bar
I don’t need to drink what’s in my hand
that was poured a little too strong

But I want to…

I don’t need you
I don’t need to pick up my phone
I don’t need to look to dial your number
cuz I can dial by heart

I don’t need you
I don’t need to be on this site
I don’t need to be scrolling past
these faceless photographs

But I want to…

I want to light my fire inside
and burn all through the night
I want to see the light of day
dance across my lover’s face
I want to relive all
of our deepest fantasies
I don’t need to be hung up on you and me
But tonight – I want to…

I don’t need you
I don’t need to pull in your drive
I don’t need to turn the lights down low
so no one sees me here

I don’t need you
I don’t need to love in the dark
I don’t need to taste drunken strangers’
kisses on my lips

But I want to…

I want to light my fire inside
and burn all through the night
I want to see the light of day
dance across my lover’s face
I want to relive all
of our deepest fantasies
I don’t need to be hung up on you and me
But tonight – I want to…

I don’t need you
I don’t need this other round
I don’t need drunken strangers
I don’t need to be stuck on you

But I want to…

Burden

don’t make a sound
don’t let them see
hide it away
buried deep
follow along
to the beat of their drum
let them believe
you’re just what they see

for if they were
to realize
the truth that you
hide inside

the Burden
Burden

pulling you down
beneath the waves
stealing all
your breath away

Burden
your Burden

you’re all alone
you’re all you have
fighting on
silently
what’s the harm
to let them see
what’s there to lose
but everything

for if they were
to realize
the truth that you
hide inside

the Burden
Burden

pulling you down
beneath the waves
stealing all
your breath away

Burden
your Burden

when it comes the time
to vocalize
what’s set apart
in your lives
the mask is pulled
the truth revealed
and in their eyes
you see and hear

the Burden
Burden

pulling you down
beneath the waves
stealing all
your breath away

Burden
you’re a Burden

you’re all alone
hide it away
don’t let them see
you’re all you have

Burden
you’re the Burden
in your mind
