Track Name: Get On The Train
SOMETIMES YOU JUST WANNA LAY ON THE TRACK
GIVE UP THE FIGHT, WAIT FOR THE RUMBLIN’
FEEL THE COLD STEEL ACROSS YOUR BACK
NOT CARE WHAT’S COMIN’ BUT YOU CAN’T DO THAT

CHORUS:
GOTTA GET ON THE TRAIN, GET ON THE TRAIN
ROLL THROUGH THE TROUBLES AND THE POURING RAIN
BABY DON’T YOU LET IT GETCHA
GOTTA GET ON THE TRAIN

YOU WANNA CRY YOU A RIVER WANNA CATCH YOUR BREATH
BUT TIME DON’T STOP AND THE WHEELS DON’T EITHER
KEEP ON MOVING RIGHT LEFT RIGHT LEFT
YEAH YOU BETTER START RUNNIN’ PUT YOUR FOOT ON THE STEP

CHORUS (REPEAT)

OOH OOH, OOH OOH
OOH OOH, OOH OOH
OH LIFE DON’T PULL NO PUNCHES, YOU GOT A BIG BLACK EYE
IT’S HARD TO GET BACK UP WHEN ALL YOU WANNA DO IS LAY DOWN AND DIE

BREAKDOWN CHORUS:
YOU GOTTA GET ON THE TRAIN, GET ON THE TRAIN
ROLL THROUGH THE TROUBLES AND THE POURING RAIN
GOTTA GET ON THE TRAIN, GET ON THE TRAIN
IT’S A TEARSTAINED TICKET BUT THERE AIN’T NO SHAME
BABY DON’T YOU LET IT GETCHA
GOTTA GET ON THE TRAY-AY-AIN

OUTRO:
SHAME, SHAME BABY IT’S A SHAME
DRAGGIN’ HURT BEHIND YOU LIKE A BALL AND CHAIN
THUNDER, FIRE AND RAIN
GONNA TRY TO STOP YOU GONNA CALL YOUR NAME
SHAME, SHAME, BABY IT’S A SHAME
DRAGGIN’ HURT BEHIND YOU LIKE A BALL AND CHAIN
THUNDER, FIRE AND RAIN
DON’T YOU LET IT STOP YOU GOTTA GET ON THE TRAIN
BABY DON’T YOU WORRY JUST GET ON THE TRAIN
DON’T YOU LET IT GETCHA GOTTA GET ON THE TRAIN
Track Name: Hello Heart
HELLO HEART, MY OLD FRIEND
IT’S GOOD TO HAVE YOU BACK AGAIN
AND BEATING THERE IN MY CHEST
YES I KNOW YOU’RE SCARED TO DEATH
I PROMISE YOU CAN STAY
I WON’T GIVE YOU AWAY

A LITTLE TAPE, A LITTLE GLUE
NOT EXACTLY QUITE BRAND NEW
BUT GOOD ENOUGH TO GET ME BY
AT LEAST JUST FOR TODAY IF I LOOK OUT FOR NUMBER ONE
WE’LL TAKE TOMORROW WHEN IT COMES

CHORUS:
HELLO HEART, HELLO HEART

HELLO HEART, DON’T BE SAD
IT DOESN’T HELP TO HURT LIKE THAT
I KNOW YOU CAN’T FORGIVE YOURSELF
FOR BEING HALF OF SOMEONE ELSE
BUT THOSE SCARS WILL MAKE STRONG
WHEN THE RIGHT ONE COMES ALONG

CHORUS

DIDN’T MEAN TO LET YOU FALL APART
ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS TAKE IT BREATH BY BREATH, BEAT BY BEAT
STEP BY STEP, BACK ON YOUR FEET
TIL YOU REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE
HELLO HEART

HELLO HEART, MY OLD FRIEND
IT’S GOOD TO HAVE YOU BACK AGAIN
AND BEATING THERE IN MY CHEST
YES I KNOW YOU’RE SCARED TO DEATH
Track Name: Cruel
CRUEL, YOU’RE SO CRUEL, HOW YOU PLAYED ME FOR A FOOL, LIKE IT DIDN’T MEAN A THING
TRUE, YEAH IT’S TRUE YOU LEAVE A TRAIL OF BLACK AND BLUE WITH YOUR YELLOWJACKET STING
YOUR WORDS HIT MY BONES LIKE STICKS AND STONES AND I, I, I
SHATTERED LIKE A CHINA DOLL
YOU JUST STOOD THERE, HOW COULD YOU NOT CARE AT ALL

CHORUS:
NOBODY’S BORN WITH A HEART MADE OF STONE HOW DID YOU GET SO COLD I KNOW IT’S GOTTA BE LONELY
NOBODY HURTS SOMEONE IF THEY WEREN’T HURT FIRST, WELL I GUESS THAT’S THE CURSE, ‘CAUSE YOU’RE NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO’S
CRUEL
TELL ME WHO WAS CRUEL TO YOU

WELL I KNOW THAT THE WORLD AIN’T BLACK AND WHITE, AND THERE’S MORE TO WRONG AND RIGHT, SO MUCH MORE THAN WHAT YOU SEE
AND THE GUN THAT YOU’RE READY TO SHOOT IS REALLY POINTING AT YOU WHEN YOU’RE AIMING IT AT ME
YOUR WORDS HIT MY BONES LIKE STICKS AND STONES BUT I, I, I
I WON’T LET YOU BREAK ME DOWN
IT’S NOT WEAK TO TURN THE OTHER CHEEK, WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND

CHORUS

I WON’T BE A PRODUCT OF YOUR POISON AND IF HATE’S A CHOICE IT ENDS WITH ME…’CAUSE

CHORUS

TELL ME WHO WAS CRUEL TO YOU
Track Name: Firefly
FIREFLY, HOW DO YOU KEEP YOUR
LIGHT ON HERE IN A DARK WORLD
I WANT TO BE A LIGHT LIKE YOU
IN THAT BLACK SKY YOU’RE NOT AFRAID OF
MIDNIGHT, YOU’VE GOT A WAY OF
SHINING BRIGHT HOW YOUR SPARKS IGNITE

CHORUS:
MAYBE THAT’S WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT
FINDING FAITH IN THE SHADOW OF YOUR DOUBT
YOU GOTTA SHINE, YOU GOTTA SHINE YOUR LIGHT - JUST LIKE A FIREFLY

SOMETIMES I LOOK AROUND ME, AND
WONDER HOW BRIGHT IT COULD BE, IN
THIS WORLD, BROKEN AND FULL OF TEARS
I’M JUST ONE IN A MILLION BUT
I TRY TO KEEP ON BELIEVIN’, IF
ONE HEART’S GOT LOVE, SOMEHOW THAT’S ENOUGH

CHORUS:
MAYBE THAT’S WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT
FINDING FAITH IN THE SHADOW OF YOUR DOUBT
YOU GOTTA SHINE, YOU GOTTA SHINE YOUR LIGHT
YOU’RE BORN TO RISE UP LIKE A SHOOTING STAR
DON’T TRY TO HIDE IT THAT’S JUST WHO YOU ARE
YOU GOTTA SHINE, YOU GOTTA SHINE YOUR LIGHT - JUST LIKE A FIREFLY

JUST ONE SPARK CAN CHANGE IT ALL…YOU’RE NOT SO SMALL

BREAKDOWN CHORUS:
MAYBE THAT’S WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT
FINDING FAITH IN THE SHADOW OF YOUR DOUBT
YOU GOTTA SHINE, YOU GOTTA SHINE, YOU GOTTA SHINE…

FINAL CHORUS:
YOU’RE BORN TO RISE UP LIKE A SHOOTING STAR
DON’T TRY TO HIDE IT THAT’S JUST WHO YOU ARE
YOU GOTTA SHINE, YOU GOTTA SHINE YOUR LIGHT - JUST LIKE A FIREFLY

FIREFLY HOW DO YOU KEEP YOUR
LIGHT ON HERE IN A DARK WORLD
I WANT TO BE A LIGHT LIKE YOU
Track Name: Angelina
ANGELINA, I SAW YOUR FACE THERE
ON A CARTON ON MY TABLE
YOU’VE BEEN MISSING SINCE LAST APRIL
ANGELINA

YOU’D BE SIXTEEN, NOT MUCH OLDER
OH AND I DON’T EVEN KNOW YOU
BUT MY HEART IS ACHING FOR YOU
ANGELINA

CHORUS:
ARE YOU HURTING ARE YOU FRIGHTENED ARE YOU RUNNING ARE YOU HIDING
IS YOUR SPIRIT FINALLY FREE OR ARE YOU SOMEWHERE OUT THERE FIGHTING
ARE YOU HANGIN’ ONTO HOPE THAT SOMEDAY SOON YOU’RE GONNA FIND YOUR WAY HOME
WILL WE EVER KNOW

ANGELINA FATE IS TWISTED
YOU COULD BE STANDING IN YOUR KITCHEN
I COULD BE OUT THERE, WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE
ANGELINA

CHORUS:
I KNOW THEY ALWAYS SAY EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON
BUT THESE QUESTIONS WITH NO ANSWERS MAKE IT SO HARD TO BELIEVE IT
WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES TO PRAY TONIGHT YOUR FACE IS ALL I’M SEEING
SOMEONE’S SISTER, SOMEONE’S DAUGHTER, SOMEONE JUST LIKE ME
ARE YOU HURTING ARE YOU FRIGHTENED ARE YOU RUNNING ARE YOU HIDING
IS YOUR SPIRIT FINALLY FREE OR ARE YOU SOMEWHERE OUT THERE FIGHTING
ARE YOU HANGIN’ ONTO HOPE THAT SOMEDAY SOON YOU’RE GONNA FIND YOUR WAY HOME
WILL WE EVER KNOW

ANGELINA, I SAW YOUR FACE THERE
ON A CARTON ON MY TABLE
YOU’VE BEEN MISSING SINCE LAST APRIL
ANGELINA
Track Name: Let Go Of The Stone
LOVIN’ HIM IS JUST LIKE WADING IN A RIVER
WATER PULLS YOU UNDER, BODY STARTS TO SHIVER
SEE THE OTHER SIDE AND DON’T KNOW HOW TO GET THERE
WHAT’S THE USE IN TRYING, OH

CHORUS
‘CAUSE IF IT’S DRAGGIN’ YOU DOWN DOWN DOWN
IF IT’S MAKIN’ YOU DROWN DROWN DROWN
IF THE PULL IS THAT STRONG STRONG STRONG
IF YOUR STRENGTH IS HALF GONE GONE GONE
LET GO OF THE STONE

SEE THE ROCKY BOTTOM, WAY DOWN DEEP THERE WAITING
MORE YOU THINK YOU’VE GOT HIM, LESS THAT YOU CAN SAVE HIM
WATER KEEPS A RISIN’ FEEL YOUR FAITH IS FLAGGIN’
ALL THESE TEARS YOU’RE CRYING, OH

CHORUS
THEY’RE ONLY DRAGGIN’ YOU DOWN DOWN DOWN
ONLY MAKIN’ YOU DROWN DROWN DROWN
IF THE PULL IS THAT STRONG STRONG STRONG
IF YOUR STRENGTH IS HALF GONE GONE GONE
LET GO OF THE STONE

I KNOW YOU WANNA TRY WITH YOUR LAST BREATH
KNOW YOU WANNA FIGHT THIS TO THE DEATH
KNOW YOU’RE THINKIN’ IT AIN’T OVER YET
BUT ALL HE DOES IS HURT YOU AND IT’S NOT WHAT LOVE DOES
HONEY WHEN IT ENDS IT WON’T END WELL
ALL YOU’RE GONNA DO IS GO THROUGH HELL
GIRL YOU GOTTA TRY TO SAVE YOURSELF
SWIM FOR SHORE WITH EVERYTHING YOU GOT OH, JUST LET GO

CHORUS:
‘CAUSE IF IT’S DRAGGIN’ YOU DOWN DOWN DOWN
IF IT’S MAKIN’ YOU DROWN DROWN DROWN
IF IT AIN’T LIFTIN’ YOU UP UP UP
THEN YOU KNOW IT AIN’T LOVE LOVE LOVE
IF THE PULL IS THAT STRONG STRONG STRONG
AND YOUR STRENGTH IS HALF GONE GONE GONE
LET GO OF THE STONE
Track Name: Ruined
BOY YOUR LOVE IS LIKE A NEW CORVETTE
ONCE YOU HIT THAT GAS THERE’S NO GOIN’ BACK
LIKE A BOTTLE OF THE BEST CHAMPAGNE
NOTHING’S QUITE THE SAME ONCE YOU’VE TASTED THAT
YOU WENT AND DID IT
NOW I’M ADDICTED
FALLIN’ FOR YOU IS A ONE WAY TICKET

CHORUS:
IF I EVER LOSE YOU
WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO
BABY I’M RUINED, BABY I’M RUINED
HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KISS
ANYBODY ELSE’S LIPS
BABY I’M RUINED, I’M SO RUINED BY YOU
RUIN ME REAL GOOD, RUIN ME REAL GOOD
YOU RUIN ME REAL GOOD (RUIN ME REAL GOOD)

YOU’RE ON MY HEART JUST LIKE A NEW TATTOO
AND I LOVE HOW YOU LOOK GOOD ON ME
IF YOU EVER WANNA WALK AWAY
BETTER DIG MY GRAVE ‘CAUSE I’M HISTORY
YOU CAN’T ERASE IT
I CAN’T REPLACE IT
YOU GOT A HOLD ON ME THERE AIN’T NO WAY TO SHAKE IT

CHORUS

SO KEEP ON DOIN’ WHAT YOU’RE DOIN’ NEXT TO YOU IS WHERE I WANNA BE
RUIN ME RUIN ME RUIN ME RUIN ME PERFECTLY

CHORUS
Track Name: Yours
I’M A MESS I’M A WRECK WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET
I’M A SATURDAY NIGHT IN A SUNDAY DRESS, I
SAY A LITTLE TOO MUCH SOMETIMES
WHEN I GET TIPSY SIPPIN’ RED WINE
I’M SCARED OF THE DARK, I HATE TO BE ALONE
THAT’S WHY I FALL ASLEEP WITH THE TV ON
I’M A BITCH WHEN I HAVE A BAD DAY
I’M A TEAR ON A PILLOW BUT IT’S ALL OK
I’M YOURS
BABY I’M YOURS
BABY I’M YOURS

I’M A DANCE ON A BAR, A DENT ON A CAR
GOD KNOWS I CAN’T PARALLEL PARK
A BED OF A TRUCK, A WISH ON A STAR
I’M A HANDFUL OF FLOWERS IN A MASON JAR
A SISTER AND A FRIEND I’M LOYAL TO THE END
A LITTLE BIT JEALOUS OF YOUR EX-GIRLFRIEND
I HOLD ON WHEN I SHOULD LET GO
I’M A LOVER I’M A FIGHTER BUT I GUESS YOU KNOW
I’M YOURS
BABY I’M YOURS

AND I KNOW I DRIVE YOU CRAZY
AND LOVING ME AIN’T EASY
BUT YOU DO IT ANYWAY

YOU’RE THE WHISKEY IN MY VEINS, A PILL TO THE PAIN
A SWEET SLOW DANCE IN THE POURING RAIN
YOU’RE THE JOKE THAT MAKES ME LAUGH
WHEN I’M FEELING DOWN WHEN I’M FEELING SAD
SOMETIMES I CAN’T BELIEVE
BABY WHAT YOU SEE IN ME
BUT EVERY MOMENT EVERY BREATH I TAKE
I CAN’T TELL YOU WHAT IT MEANS TO SAY I’M YOURS
BABY I’M YOURS
BABY I’M YOURS
Track Name: Run To You
I’M A WHEEL ON THE BLACKTOP BABY
I’M A TRAIN ON A ONE WAY TRACK
I’M THE WIND IN THE PINE TREES BABY
STRAIGHT AHEAD AND I WON’T TURN BACK
I’M A WAVE ON THE OCEAN BREAKIN’
I’M A LINE ON A STATE ROAD MAP
GOTTA SATISFY THIS ACHING
GOTTA GET THERE, GET THERE FAST

CHORUS
‘CAUSE YOU’RE PULLING ME
LIKE A RIVER RUNNING STRAIGHT DOWN TO THE SEA
I’M LIKE THE TIDE CHASIN’ THE MOON
AND I KNOW THERE’S NOTHING ELSE THAT I CAN DO
BUT RUN TO YOU

YOU’RE A FLAME IN THE DARKNESS BABY
YOU’RE A STAR IN THE MIDNIGHT SKY
YOU’RE THE SWEET ANTICIPATION
YOU’RE THE NEED THAT I CAN’T DENY
YOU’RE THE HEAT OF A TOUCH ON SKIN AND
YOU’RE A DROP OF DESERT RAIN
YOU’RE A SOUND IN THE SILENCE RINGIN’
I CAN HEAR YOU CALLING MY NAME

CHORUS

I’M A BEE TO THE HONEY BABY
I’M A MOTH TO A BURNING FLAME
IT’S YOUR KISS IT’S YOUR LOVE I’M CRAVING
LIKE A VICE THAT I CAN’T SHAKE

CHORUS

I’M A WHEEL ON THE BLACKTOP BABY
I’M A TRAIN ON A ONE WAY TRACK
I’M A WAVE ON THE OCEAN BREAKIN’
I’M A LINE ON A STATE ROAD MAP
Track Name: Indigo
Indigo
Somewhere between blue and black
Somewhere between there and back
In between where you are and where you thought you’d be
Indigo like an endless night
Never more than a dusky light
Just a candle glow
Indigo

Chorus:
Poison arrow to the vein
Any second feel no pain
There’s no pride now, there’s no shame
Won’t you show me
Tender mercy
Tender mercy

Indigo
It’s like waiting for scales to tip
It’s like the view from a sinking ship
Like praying for a strip of land but all you see is sea
Indigo in the deep dark depths
And you can’t see the bottom yet
Rising up below

Indigo – ooh
Ooh

Indigo
Spilling out like a jar of ink
Across the page and the thoughts i think
Til there’s nothing left

(repeat chorus)

Ooh
