You Were Never Meant For Me
I knew something wasn’t right
When you left me home last night
You said you had somewhere to be
I heard your voice was cold
And it might have been too bold
But I had to try and see

So I followed you to town
Saw you were whiskey bound
And felt that old familiar fear
You walked beneath that neon light
Right out of my sight
And I knew the end was here
whoaaaa  now it’s up to me
Whoaaa I'll show you how to be
whoaaaa  now it’s up to me
Whoaaa I'll show you how to be
Whooooooo I was too blind to seeeeeeee
You were never meant for me

No turning back now
had to know somehow
What the depth of your crimes were
walked in and took a seat
You didn’t notice me
Because I saw your lips meet hers

The price you’ll pay is high
Consider this goodbye
You won’t hurt me again


Let It Break Your Heart
Let that wind blow
Let  that love go 
let it tear you apart 
let that cold in 
Let the world spin
Let it break your heart

Your hands are breaking Your life has been hard
You've been made brittle and scarred
You cover them up but the cracks they still show
they come creeping back like the wind and the snow

Your heaven ain't big It's right here below
Don't mind the sun or the cold
Don't mind the darkness or the next day
you've got your smile and time wasting away

You know this place like the back of your hand 
You know each inch of this land
The lights of the freeway they glow in the distance
But you know you're home behind this old wood fence
And I say...


Good Night To Make A Bad Mistake
You look like the man you hire/ when you're guilty
I can see right through/ that smirk
You should stay away from me/ I know just what you are, you see, 
and All your normal tricks/ ain't gonna work

I've given you enough attention 
You're a black hole of affection
Who's buried in those walls you had to make
But I've dug through deeper in the past
I'm strong enough and built to last
It's a good night to make a bad mistake

You're everything I never wanted/ I need someone to pray for me
 Please just shut your mouth/ you ridiculous man
Let's get this done, / Let's call it fun
Let’s do this/ just because we can

It's not that you ain't pretty/ you just look better under bar lights
But I see you, boy, and I see death
There's no flower underneath your pillow And my dreams won't be sweet
I think need/ to take a breath 


I Know We’re Okay
I'm dreaming of someplace, far away
And time to be with you
These walls surround me, close me in
Keep me far from you

I hold your hand
You say my name
And I know
We're okay

You take my hand
I say your name
And I know 
We're okay

We could run away right now
Sell everything we own
Where we'd go God only knows
To a place we've always known

Find the splintered rails, of an old front porch
Strong beneath my hands
Wrap my arms round your shoulders
And look out on the land


Darlin'
Clouds are boiling
In the distance
And I’ve nowhere left to run
Oh my darling oh my darling
What is it that
I have done

You had longed so long to see me
And you thought I felt the same
But my heart it seems was wicked
And I lied and played my games

How I hurt you And I meant to
For I’d been hurt before
And I meant to yes I meant to
Pass the hurt on once more

You saw hope and saw salvation
You wanted it all to be true
But I led you from your family
Just to be cruel

Now the rain has started falling
On this dry and thirsting land
And I’ll never quite forget how
I destroyed an innocent man


Young And In Love
We're not the losers
We're not the winners
We're the creators
We're no beginners
Sometimes we're believers
Always sinners
We've never been saints, but
Sometimes there's a glimmer.. 

You give me hope
Because you know 
Young and in love Is good
Old and in love is better
You give me hope
Because you know 
Young and in love Is good
Old and in love is better

When we were younger
thought love had to be
Fireworks and tempers
Raging hopelessly
But now that I'm older
And I can see better
You're kind and I trust you
Nothing else matters 

ONE FOR THE AGES

Billings To Pueblo
Caught a greyhound in Spokane
Without anything much planned
Just a trip for the weekend
He never knew quite what happened

At a Montana bus stop
He saw her and his heart stopped
A half shirt and a dead tooth
There she stood by the ticket booth

Just the right type of trashy, Just the right type of classy
Who knew love could be found, On a southbound greyhound...

Oh their love was one for the ages
The kind they write on those romance book pages
Whatever way she goes That's the way he goes
As long as they both go From Billings to Pueblo

Caught him looking in Cheyenne
By Denver they were past holding hands
Making out in the backseat
Knowing they were finally complete

Time was short but love is fast
They knew it wasn't meant to last
His ride would end in Amarillo
She'd say goodbye to him in Pueblo

And they'd never forget
And they'd never regret
That they both took a bet
On someone they just met

Just the right type of trashy, Just the right type of classy
Who knew love could be found, On a southbound greyhound...

(Oh yeah they'd sing) our love Is one for the ages
The kind that they’d write on those romance book pages
Whatever way you go, that's the way I go
As long as we both go from billings to pueblo
Whatever way you go, that's the way I go
As long as we both go from billings to pueblo

Hey Love
Hey love
What do we do about you
Hey love
What do we do about you
Every time I turn around
You’re trying to bring me down
Hey love, hey love


I keep my heart locked up tight
And my head deep in the sand
But that don’t stop me hearing about
The things you do secondhand
No matter what I do or say
that pain still finds me anyway
Hey love
I can’t get away

I keep being told
To expect great disappointment
I keep being told
The end is near
No matter what you bring to me
I can’t seem to shake you free
Hey love
Please let me be

Hey love, hey love
Hey love, hey love
Hey love, hey love

A Delicate Process
When it all seems lost
and I’ve no hope
I think about you
When I’m just surviving
But I don’t give up
I think about you

The darkness keeps coming
The hard times don’t stop
But then I think about you
Those nights can be deceptively long
I don’t trust em
But I do trust you

You make it good
You make it great
You make it all
Worth the wait
It takes awhile
But you make me smile
It’s a delicate process
But so worth the wait

My heart is hurting
My dreams are undone
But still I think about you
When all I can do
Is run till I drop
I think about you

I might just believe
In things I don’t see
When I think about you
You make me think
There’s good days to come
When I think about you

‘Cause you make it good....

It is well
All is well
It is well
In my soul x4

Tiger
I will not consume your darkness
Will not suffer any fools
Will not tolerate your hatred
And I Will not be your tool

I won’t let the hatred take me
No I will not lose this fight
I will not let you make me
Dim my light into your night

The tigers out
The tigers out
Destroyed her cage
The tiger’s out

She’s out she’s out
The tigers out
Destroyed her cage
The tigers out

She’s out she’s out
She’s out she’s out
Destroyed her cage
The tiger’s out

I might want to see you suffer
I might want to see your pain
I might want to see you hurting
As you lose this wicked game

Although I wont bring judgement
I do not wish you ill
I am the one you need to fear
I am a bitter pill

Burn it down
Burn it down
Burn it down
Burn it down
All right

The tigers out
The tigers out
Destroyed her cage
The tiger’s out

She’s out she’s out
The tigers out
Destroyed her cage
The tigers out

She’s out she’s out
She’s out she’s out
Destroyed her cage
The tiger’s out

The tigers out
The tigers out
Destroyed her cage
The tigers out

YOU CAN'T KILL GHOSTS

Will Not Fade Away

I’d leave you standing in the cold
So I wouldn’t have to feel the chill
I’d leave you stranded by the roadside
And I’d be safe behind the wheel 

I won’t light myself on fire
won’t step in front of no train for you
I don’t care what you might think
My head is strong, my heart is too

The sky is dark
My mind is black
I am filled with rage
There’s a rhyme
But there’s no reason
And I’m finally
Outta this cage
I’m cold inside 
but not afraid
When my time 
finally comes
I will not fade away
I will not fade away
For you

You said I’m bad, but for a bad woman
I might be one of the best
Walls and doors torn down
I was forced to make this mess

Someday I will be judged
But I don’t think it’ll be for this 
I should have been right out that door 
The first time you clenched your fist

CHORUS

I said I’m going, 
Yes I’m going 
Leaving anger 
and my shame

I’ll be in the wind 
and in the dust
taking nothing 
but my name

CHORUS 2x 
I will not fade away
For you

We Will Rise

Every day, when I wake up
I could be great, is what i say
But when the chance, it comes along
I always look, the other way

Every day when I wake up 
I could be strong, is what I say
But when it’s time to move along
I choose to stay, i choose to stay

Am I wrong, am I right, can I ever win this fight? 

But I will rise
I will rise
I will rise
I will rise
hear my joy
hear my cry
And i will rise 

Keep finding ways, To waste my time
Keep finding trouble, lost my mind 
I don’t try but it comes out anyway
Keep being cruel, but i wanna be kind
Keep letting rage fill up this space
Keep letting rage control this place
Gonna cut my mouth wide open
Rip this mask right off my face

Am I wrong, am I right can I ever win this fight? 

But I will rise
I will rise
I will rise
I will rise
hear my joy
hear my cry
And i will rise 

Instrumental 

Am I wrong, am I right can I ever win this fight?

But we will rise x9

Can't Say Goodbye Completely

I wake up
My tongue made of velvet
That’s part of a bar seat
That’s been there
For five decades past

My body is shaking
My stomach is nails
And I feel like I swallowed
My failures
My head's full of glass

I can’t say goodbye completely
You sold me on your lie 
so sweetly I can’t say 
goodbye to you completely

My skin hangs in sadness
There ain’t nothin good 
So why do I still
want this madness
nobody should 

Afraid of a pain 
that I know is coming
So why not 
rehearse for it now
Then do it again

lalala lalala

And I can’t say goodbye completely
And I can’t say goodbye completely
You sold me on your lie 
so sweetly I can’t say 
goodbye to you completely

Drunk And Lost In Tennessee

Drunk and lost in Tennessee
Where else in the world could I be
That would leave me so/ Sad and low
But drunk and lost in Tennessee


Honey it was just a little fight
Won't you turn off that light
I’ll tell you more in the morning
This state should come with a warning
And while I’m glad that you’re with me
I don’t remember things clearly
But I know come sunrise….I’ll..still…be…

Chorus

I know I  started off fine/ Just having a good time
What was it I was drinking/ That got me this far from thinking
I can't say how I got here/ But it probably wasn’t light beer
Now the trouble…that I’m in…is clear

Chorus

seems each time I'm in this town
I just can't put that bottle down
I keep on breaking your heart
These nights are tearing us apart
And it seems that you can’t see that this will be the end of me
Cause this aint the last time…that…I'll ..be 

Whole Heart

I loved her with my whole heart
But she loved me a whole lot harder
Never wanted to Leave my side
And I could never love another
The way that I loved her, I could never even try
I loved her with my whole heart
She loved me a whole lot harder
And I know I won’t recover From the day we said goodbye

She was a bright spot, a bright dot
In a dark dark sky
Bet I won’t find another like her
Won’t even try
Sometimes you lose a gift
Sometimes You say goodbye
She was a bright spot, a bright dot
In a dark dark sky

She had a heart that was
A Beautiful sponge
She soaked up all my tears 
And absorbed all my love
When I was hurt, I was a mess
She fixed me up, she got it done
She had a heart that was
A beautiful sponge

Ghost Who Haunts You

That’s right boy
Run and Take your tail with you
Like the coward that you are
I sure ain’t gonna miss you
That’s right boy
Say your piece and run and hide
Like the coward that you are
I don’t have To waste my time (on you)

There’s no convincing you of anything 
you don’t want to believe
But you’re starting to believe...

That
I look like the ghost who haunts you
I look like the witch who hunts you 
I look like the one who hurt you 
I look like the one you want, too
I look like the ghost who haunts you
I look like the ghost who haunts you 

You should Leave now 
leave like a man
You stole everything already
So I know you’ll take what you can
You’re the worst kind
And I may have no plan 
But I’m gonna die trying
To show you who I am

There’s no convincing you of anything 
you don’t want to believe
But you’re starting to believe...

I might be the ghost who haunts you
I might be the witch who hunts you 
I might be the one who hurt you 
I might be the one you want, too
I might be the ghost who haunts you
I might be the ghost who haunts you

There’s no convincing you of anything 
you don’t want to believe
But you’re starting to believe...

I am the ghost who haunts you
I am the witch who hunts you 
I am the one who hurt you 
I am the one you want, too
I am the ghost who haunts you
I am the ghost who haunts you
I am the ghost who haunts you
I am the ghost who haunts you


All These Ways


When I first saw you on that barstool
I knew exactly what love means
Although at first i was so ladylike
I'm  not exactly what I seem
Yeah I took you home that evening
And I swore I’d make you mine

And what feels likes decades later
I’m still trying to find out why…….

(there’s) All these ways you make me crazy
All these ways you rile me up
All these ways you mean the world to me
And I never want to stop

Now we’ve made it through the easy times
Now we’re in the thick of things
Now we’re hanging on for dear life
And seeing what the future brings

Now  we’re in this for the long haul
It’s what they call domestic bliss
And every now and then you prove to me
That you still know how to kiss

(there’s) All these ways you make me crazy
All these ways you rile me up
All these ways you mean the world to me
And I never want to stop

(there’s) All these ways you make me crazy
All these ways you rile me up
All these ways you mean the world to me
And I never want to stop

Everything You Taught Me

 I know how to hike for miles
I know how to light a fire
I know how to pitch a tent and
I know how to change a tire

I know how to play some instruments how to read the notes
I learned everything you asked me
But it wasn’t quite enough

And I know how to ride a horse
I know how to fly a plane
I know how to cry in silence
I know how to sit in pain

Everything you taught me
Everything you taught me
You didn’t mean to teach me
Everything you taught me

I know how to get angry
and how to pitch a fit
I know how to blame everyone
And not own my own shit

I know how to rob and steal 
how to lie to those you love
I know exactly how to cheat
I know what hurtin someone does

And I know how to ride a horse
I know how to fly a plane
I know how to cry in silence
I know how to sit in pain

Everything you taught me
Everything you taught me
You didn’t mean to teach me
Everything you taught me

don’t quite know how to apologize
Or how to ask forgiveness
don’t know how to admit I’m wrong
guess you never taught me this

And I know how to ride a horse
I know how to fly a plane
I know how to cry in silence
I know how to sit in pain

Everything you taught me
Everything you taught me
You didn’t mean to teach me
Everything you taught me


Hotel With No Name

You've been on the road for weeks by now
No end to it in sight
The billboards start to catch your eye
Need to try to sleep tonight
the engine starts to whine and knock
You take it as a sign 
Nowhere could be as bad
As what you've left behind

The mechanic seems resigned to life
He tells you the bad news 
Parts you need are hard to find
You can stay long as you choose
There ain't nothing else for miles ahead
You've seen all there was behind
And although you start to feel unease 
You'll probably be just fine

But the wind keeps blowing, like you've never 
heard before
And something keeps on keeping you, 
from moving out that door

It's like you've always been here
It's always been the same
You feel the slip of something cold
Inside your brain
You cry out to those lonely plains
But no one hears a thing
You're living and you're dying
At the hotel with no name

The old brick buildings tell the tale
Of grander days they knew
It all looks lovely here at first
It's hard to tell what's true
Are you just here by accident
Luck of the draw they say
Or is there something that brought you here
And makes you need to stay 

The bottles start to pile inside
Your lonely room for one
Been days since their service came
You're bout to come undone
You make a vow, it's time to change
It's time to leave this place
But when you look in the mirror
You're not sure you see your face


Torch The House

We torched the house
Watched it burn
Down to the ground
Everything turned
From wood to ash
Bone into dust
All we could love
All we could trust
We torched the house

I’d be with you 
And I’d miss you
Don’t know if I
I should kill or kiss you
don’t know if I
Should even try
don’t know if I should
Should let this die

I said to you 
I was no angel
You said to me
You weren’t one too
So I ran
To hill from coast
But everyone knows
You can’t kill ghosts

So we torched the house
Watched it burn
Down to the ground
Everything turned
From wood to ash
Bone into dust
All we could love
All we could trust
We torched the house
