Love is a Weapon (2019)

Love is a Weapon
Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

I know I can be a little overwhelming
It’s hard enough already to make it through
But that’s the price I figure I’m paying
To have my muse, to know your name

I don’t wanna lose you, If​ I don’t have to
But sometimes I think the earth is gonna
Open up and swallow you whole
Love is a weapon, See if you can use it
‘Cause I don’t wanna fight like this anymore
I don’t wanna fight

You lost your nerve, did it happen for a reason
Were you bolder, were you stronger, are you still asleep
Well, it’s too late now, to think about what happened
I’m swimming in an ocean of divine discontent

CHORUS

Everyone is in love with the sun
As it falls and ignites the sky
Oh but, give me twilight, the outline of starlight
I’d rather be blue tonight

CHORUS

This Kind of Sadness

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

This is the kind of sadness
I thought I buried
Into the ground
It’s grown into a lion
Now it’s waiting
To devour
All of me, all my heart
All of me, all my heart

And I heard somebody say
That somebody said that I said they said
And they’re telling lies
Yeah I heard somebody say
That somebody said that I said they said
And I’m not surprised

This is the kind of sadness
I fall asleep to
Dream away
You are the lion
I let you take me
I let you stay
Beside me, dangerously
Beside me, dangerously

CHORUS

It gets worse as the winter wears on and
It gets worse as the winter wears on and
It gets worse as the winter wears on and on and on…

This is the kind of sadness
I can count on
It never really leaves
I’m in love with a lion
One step in the darkness
Got a hold on me
Is this what I deserve?
Is this what I deserve?

CHORUS

Black Spruce Swamp

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges & Clint Thomson

The black spruce swamp
Is where I like to go
When the storm it rolls
There my heart goes

The black spruce swamp
Knows the way I walk
Loves you from afar
From dawn to dark

All of these templed trees
Bringing me to my knees
And the ground moves up
And the ground moves up
To meet me

That mighty river
Feel the undertow
Let it pull you down
And watch it grow

Oh, to be that river
On and on, I roll
Never looking back
Bend high and low

CHORUS

She

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

She’s been trouble since she walked in
I think she knows it
But she don’t care
There she goes again she’s right on time
Racing through my mind
And everywhere

She’s a songbird in the springtime
She sings at sunrise
Like the bluebirds do
She’s a little colder in the winter
But together
We’re gonna make it through

She’s got a mind that I can never seem to satisfy
But she’s got this love
And I can never seem to get enough

She’s a lover, but she’ll fight for us
When it seems we’re lost
She’ll find a way
She’ll be patient if I fuck this up
She knows I’m better off
Learning the hard way

CHORUS

She’s been trouble since she walked in
I think she knows it
And I don’t mind

Burn This House Down

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

If you wanna burn this house down
I gotta let you know
It ain’t gonna be easy
The way the wind’s been blowing

If you wanna burn this house down
You best have a plan
I can stand in this inferno
I’m not sure if you can

Stoke the fire ‘til the flame burns higher
And everything smolders to ash
But don’t come crawling back when there’s nothing left

If you think you’ve got an army
You better look around
You’re only King of Idiocracy
And you proudly wear the crown
If you think you’ve got an army
What are they fighting for?
I pledge allegiance to hypocrisy
There’s no justice in war

CHORUS

I’ve got the match now, don’t turn your back now
I’ve got the match now, don’t turn your back
I’ve got the match, the tables are turning ‘round
I’m not the only one here
With something to lose my dear, no

If you wanna burn this house down
I’m sure you understand
No way you’ll get away with it
No, devil be damned

CHORUS

Lost My Way

Lyrics by: Clint Thomson & Karen Bridges

This place isn’t what it used to be
Everyone’s trying to take a piece of me
And the road is overgrown
And I can’t find my way

No one knows who we are in here
One hand anchored to the sky
And here we go again
Strangers in this land

Maybe I’m to blame for what has happened
Maybe I’m to blame for what’s gone wrong
Maybe I’m to blame and you said
Baby, this happens to us all

The wind is howling trying to talk sense into me
I keep wondering if this could be
Just a bad run
Yeah, just a hard run

The block gets smaller every step I take
It’s my own fault if I’m in this shape
Ain’t no need to go no further
Better get out while you can

Maybe I’m to blame for such a fine mess
Maybe I grew into it, I don’t know
Maybe I’m to blame for all these secrets
Being sold

I’ve lost my way back home
Lost my way back home
Lost my way back home
And I know I can’t go back now

Lost my way back home
Lost my way back home
Lost my way back home
Lost my way back home
Lost my way back home

Rally & Cry

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

Given all we’ve crucified
Are we not yet satisfied
With all that we have left to die
We see them fall before our eyes
We’ve got our hands on their demise
But we cannot begin to recognize

We all love the underdog
When it’s easy to fight
We manufacture outrage
And wear it with pride
We rally & cry

There’s a black cloud in the sky
Begging us to rectify
We pull it down and cover up our eyes
Don’t wanna take a look inside
Don’t wanna face the truth tonight
That maybe we just don’t have it right

We all love the underdog
At least just in our minds
We manufacture outrage
When we judge it justified
We rally & cry, oh

Are we not yet satisfied?
Are we not yet satisfied?
Are we not yet satisfied?
Are we not yet satisfied?

I Wanna Go Darker

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

I wanna go darker
A shade blacker than blue
I wanna go darker
Slide just outta sight
Away from the light
With you

It’s fine here in the shadows
Come on
I’m gonna let this daydream
Fade into night
Oh, it feels right

Don’t wanna give a damn
Don’t wanna bother with you
But I wanna go darker
So if you won’t let me go
I’ll pull you down
You know it’s true

Don’t wanna be a good girl, no
I’m not your fool
The fire in the sky
Tells me, oh
It’s almost time
To make you mine

I wanna go darker
A shade blacker than blue
I wanna go darker
Slight just outta sight
Away from the light
With you

Appaloosa

Lyrics by: Clint Thomson

Appaloosa, appaloosa
There at my door
Won’t you please stick around
And play some more

Appaloosa, Appaloosa
Take your sweet time
‘Cause all I really want back
Is what’s mine

Can you believe how fast this thing goes?
And all I can do is what it fold
They say time will heal your wounds
But it can’t help you, honey
It always comes too soon

Appaloosa, appaloosa
Lay at my door
Take a rest, catch your breath
Don’t bleed me anymore

Appaloosa, Appaloosa
So long farewell
The damage you have done
Ain’t no tongue can tell

Can you believe how fast this train rolls?
And all I can do is what it go
They say time will heal your wounds
But it can’t help you, honey
It always comes too soon

Appaloosa, appaloosa
You broke my heart
Won’t you please grant me just
One more start

Oh, I promise you things
They’ll be different this time
You can go your way
And I’ll go mine

They say time will heal your wounds
Oh, but it can’t help you, honey
It always comes too soon

Break Me Down

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

Somebody said they saw the fire
I don’t see it, I don’t see it
Somebody’s preaching ‘bout revival
I don’t feel it, I don’t feel it

All I know is all that I’ve been through
And I don’t wanna have something to prove
But I do

I’m not gonna let you break me
I’m not gonna let you break me
I’m not gonna let you break me down

Somebody sounded off a siren
I don’t hear it, I don’t hear it
Somebody’s cryin’ out a warning
I won’t heed it, I won’t heed it

I’d say the revolution’s overdue
And I don’t wanna have something to prove
But I do

CHORUS

So what
If it’s an uphill fight
I know I got it right
So what
If I’m losing my mind
I had to know it’s just a matter of time
Gave my all
To devil I don’t know
And I don’t mind
I don’t mind
I don’t mind

CHORUS

Somebody said they saw the fire
I don’t see it, I don’t see it

The North Side

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

Fell asleep with the light on
Haven’t felt this way in so long, so long
Been back and forth but I’m still gaining ground
And what feels like home
Feels good for now

Just a little overwhelming
Given how much you mean to me, to me
Never wanted something so much
No matter the cost
It’s never enough

I’ve been down this road
Don’t think I don’t know
The songs that I’m laying down tonight
Have got a way to make it right
The winter’s almost through
And I belong with you
The snow’s falling again tonight
And I’ve got this feeling we’re alright
On the north side, the north side, yeah

Wildflowers and weeds
Tangled ‘neath the trees
And I’m just trying to get by
All along the way
Nothing seems to stay the same
No, not you and I

CHORUS

Devil That I Know (2016)

Mama Said

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

Mama said nothing good ever happens after midnight 
Mama said nothing good ever happens after midnight 
And I don’t feel like being good tonight 
No, I don’t feel like being good 

Everyone on the street is sleeping
Everyone else is trying to dream
I don’t know if there’s a reason
Things aren’t always what they seem 

CHORUS

Everyone’s moving in the daylight 
When the world’s awake and bright 
I’d rather take in all this moonlight 
No matter if it’s wrong or right 

You think you know what’s good for me 
I know me better than you 
You can shut your eyes to all you see 
But for me, it’s just a little too soon… 

CHORUS

Ready

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

There’s a light on the in the kitchen, there’s a half empty glass of red
There’s a letter that I wrote you that I know I’m never gonna send
I’ve come to terms with how we left things I’m okay with living with these ghosts
I’m looking forward to another chance to love again and just let go

I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready now
I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready now

There’s a new season turning, there’s a hillside dusted white
There’s a lifetime of winters that kept me from burning bright
See, I was sleeping when you found me. Eyes closed, unprepared
When you awoke in my a fire like a love I never knew I had

CHORUS

It’s been a long time coming, been a long road driving down
Looks like I’m finally getting somewhere, I can finally see the edge of town

CHORUS

There's a Ghost in my Bed

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

There’s a ghost in my bed, a ghost in my bed
When I’m sleeping he goes right to my head, right to my head
There’s a ghost in my bed, a ghost in my bed
I’m hanging on to every word that he says, every word that he says

He won’t let me go, he’s kinda like a song that I know
And the music is everywhere
No matter how hard I try
There’s still a ghost in my bed, a ghost in my bed

There’s smoke in my hair, smoke in my hair
She’s fit to burn, but I don’t think she cares, I don’t think she cares
There’s smoke in my hair, smoke in my hair
She swirls around me and it’s just not fair, no it’s just not fair

She won’t let me go, she’s kinda like a song that I know
And the music is everywhere
No matter how hard I try
There’s still smoke in my hair, there’s still smoke in my hair

He won’t let me go, he’s kinda like a song that I know
And the music is everywhere
No matter how hard I try
There’s still a ghost in my bed, a ghost in my bed

Hard to Fight
Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

Lately I’ve been circling ’round the idea of giving up
What’s the point of hanging on if what I’ve got’s not enough
Eyes on the floor I let go sigh after sigh
And I don’t know which way is right, no
I don’t know which way is right

Is this six ton weight just in my head
Or is the elephant in the room, unsaid
This conversation seems to have only side
And I don’t know if we’re gonna be alright, no
I don’t know if we’re gonna be alright

Despite all the times I let the night into my head
You haven’t figured out how to love me when I’m sad
But to be fair neither have I
And I don’t know how hard to fight, no
I don’t know how hard to fight

Devil That I Know

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges & Clint Thomson

Now it comes down to this, your back’s against the wall
Why would you take such a risk, aren’t you afraid you might fall?
Don’t be so hard on yourself, it’s not so easily done
I’ll keep you here with me, I’ll keep you under my thumb

Let me go
I won’t stay here with you
I need something else, something true
Like poison, I’ll draw you from the wound
you’re a curse I must lift, I have been such a fool
And you say we’re the same, but…

You don’t even know my mind
You never took the time
I’m better off without you anyway
What we had was just a dream
A hoax, a made-up scheme
It wasn’t you and me anyway
And if it was..

Black and white, I could pick a side
And it would be easy, and I would be alright
When I don’t know which way to go
I’m gonna lean, I’m gonna lean
Toward the devil that I know

The devil I know has always kept me
The devil I know, he won’t let me, he won’t let me go

And now I’ve had enough
I think I’ll call this bluff,
and I will take what’s left and start again
And I won’t be afraid of this life
I won’t close my eyes this time
And I won’t make the same mistakes
and if it was…

CHORUS

Thundercloud

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

Thundercloud
Oh how I’ve missed you
The winter has been so long

Thundercloud
Oh how I want you
You spark and you light up my dark

Thundercloud
Oh how I need you
I like having you around

Won’t you stay
Won’t you stay

Thundercloud

No Good

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

I’m no good at silly games
I’m showing my hand again
You can see it on my face
If you catch my eyes they’re gonna tell you the truth
And odds are I’ll fall for you and we’re guaranteed to lose

Let’s face it
Let’s face it
Baby, I’m no good

I’m no good at being good
It’s like I don’t even try sometimes
Although I probably could
No I can’t be contained, I can’t just do as I’m told
And you can try to ignore it ’til there’s nowhere left to go

CHORUS

I’m no good, I’m no good, I’m no good, I’m no good, oh
For you
For you

What My Heart Wants

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

A house in the valley
Where summer never ends
You, standing beside me
Our love and the mountains to tend

This is what my heart wants, my heart
This is what my heart wants, my heart

The air blue with night
A shadow falls on the day
Twilight seems to feel right
When there’s music aching to play

CHORUS

Drive on through the hillside
You’ve been on my mind
There’s still a lot that I don’t know
Oh, but I know

This is what my heart wants, my heart
This is what my heart wants, my heart
You are all that my heart wants, my heart
You are all that my heart wants, my heart

Bluebird
Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

I don’t know nobody that can love me like you do
I don’t know nobody baby that can love me like you do
Love me like you do, love me like you do, love me like you

I don’t want nobody like the way that I want you
I don’t want nobody baby like the way that I want you
The way that I want you, the way that I want you, the way that I

When the bluebird sings this is how it goes
Don’t you go on and lie to me baby ‘cuz I already know

You ain’t got nobody that knows you like I do
You ain’t got nobody baby that knows you like I do
Knows you like I do, knows you like I do, nobody knows you

Love me, ba-ba-ba-baby love me like you do
Love me, ba-ba-ba-baby love me like you do
Love me, ba-ba-ba-baby love me like you do
Love me, ba-ba-ba-baby love me like you do

What I'm Doing Now

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

I can’t make you want this like I want this, like I need this, no
There’s gotta be a better way to navigate your selfishness
‘Cuz I gotta get through this, oh

What I’m doing is not working
What I’m doing now is no working out

I’ve been too careless with my wishing, now I’m wishing we could start again, oh
There’s gotta be a better way to get everything I’m dreaming of
Just a little bit of what I want, oh

CHORUS

Sooner or later, one of us has gotta give in and I swear to god
It’s not gonna be me
So take it or leave it, love me or leave me, oh

CHORUS

Sink or Swim

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

Running fast, beating hard, heading past the last safe place we’ve known
No light to guide, the night so dark, nowhere to rest, nowhere to call our home

It comes down to sink or swim, sink or swim, sink or swim, love

Unprepared, what lies ahead, just holding on to what we have for tonight
Sometimes it’s better to let go but I can’t justify defeat in this fight

We’re gonna sink or swim, sink or swim, sink or swim, love
And when it all comes down
Pray we will not be found
Will we weather this hand in hand
And start again

Somewhere along the way
Decisions must be made

Sink or swim, sink or swim, sink or swim, love
And when it all comes down
Pray we will not be found
We will weather this hand in hand
And start again

Don't Know What's Worse

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges & Clint Thomson

Don’t know what’s worse
Being so down I could cry or not having anybody on my side
Don’t know what’s worse
Missing you now that you’re gone
or the grief from what I said when you were around
Any day now, I’m gonna make up my mind, oh

Don’t know what’s worse
Sticking around– eyes on the door
or never knowing just what it is I’m waiting for
Don’t know what’s worse
Giving up on us or fighting this war that we both know we’ve lost
Because what doesn’t kill me still hurts a lot, oh

Look in the mirror, your regret is all you know
But it’s just the fear in you
Don’t look back now, just let go

Don’t know what’s worse
Don’t believe I’ll ever know
But I’m not holding on, I’m letting go
Don’t know what’s worse
But these days are growing short
And I won’t sit around, wonderin’ what it was all for
And if you will forgive me, then I’ll forgive you, oh

Why Doesn't Anyone Stick Around?

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

Why doesn’t anyone stick around?
Am I so easy to leave?
Did you stop loving me?
I’d like to know

What else can I do tonight than wonder why you had to go
Was there a better way to love you?
How could I know?

I’ll be the last one standing when the storm comes through
When it looks like I can’t care anymore than I already do

CHORUS

I’ll be the last one standing when the storm comes through
When it looks like I can’t care anymore than I already do

CHORUS

Am I so easy to leave?
Did you stop loving me?
I’d like to know

These Are The Hills (2014)

Hello

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

Hello, late June in the North 
Summer is always too short 
Nights getting longer before they are warmer and so 
We’ve still got miles to go 

Hello, September in the West 
Cottonwoods in soft, yellow dress 
This train pulls us near to the sky and so clear 
The stars are this time of year 

Hello, early April in the South 
Moss-soaked Cypress reaching for me now 
Our ghosts are not as old as those that haunt from years of war 
But they’re nearer here than ever before 

The sky hangs so low and so cold when you go 
Time will tell if I’ll get to you ‘cause no one else knows 

Hello, December in the Middle 
Seems to always snow too little 
I need you now to bring the merry and fast 
This year is never gonna last

Waiting For

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

Hey you, whatcha doing with my heart? 
Hey you, you gonna watch it fall apart? 
Hey you, all I’ve been hearing from you is how you’ve got a plan 
Hey you, you know I’m patient but there’s only so much heartache I can stand 

What are you waiting for, what are you waiting for now? 
Show me what you’ve got in store, what are you waiting for now?

Hey you, when’re ya puttin on that speed? 
Hey you, I could think of a few better places to be 
Hey you, can you tell me why I worked so hard for this? 
Hey you, you’ve got your eyes closed, back turned, no one else to blame for what you’ve missed 

What are you waiting for, what are you waiting for now? 
I’ve half a mind to show you the door, what are you waiting for now? 

I’m gonna love you hard even if it breaks my heart. Honey, I don’t care if I come out scarred 
Don’t let me go without a fight, you know we’re on the same side, 
We’re gonna figure this out if we get some time 

What are we waiting for, what are we waiting for now? 
What are you waiting for, what are you waiting for now?

How I'll Come Undone

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

I was born, I was born with our song in my lungs 
I’ve a clear as day now, I’ve a clear as day picture of how I’ll come undone 
Silhouettes so black against the richest of blue 
When I close my eyes, when I close my eyes all I see is me with you 

I saved the letters, I saved the letters that we wrote when everything was new 
I can’t let them go, I can’t let them go for fear of letting go of you 
And so this how it goes– when I start I don’t stop 
Like a steam train rolling, like a steam train rolling on down from the mountaintop 

The San Juan set afire, the San Juan set afire in late September 
I wanna go back, I wanna go back there to remember 
The trees stretch upward and offer up their branches 
I’ll watch the leaves, I’ll watch the leaves as they fall like ashes 

Be my north star, be my north star and I’ll follow you by the book 
But forgive my weakness, forgive my weakness for a twilight sky and a wistful look 
In the end there’s not much more that I can confess 
So lay me down, so lay me down unto the earth in a plain pine box and a black dress

Red Sky

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

Come on by, don’t need a reason why 
I’ve got a mind full of wishing and two hands on a mission 
So come on by 

Even if I don’t, baby, you should know 
Burn midnight with you– want you to know 
I wanted to, even if I don’t 

I know that red sky means trouble now, but I just don’t care 
When I head back toward the hills, would you meet me there? 

Drinkin all that rye, way old habits die 
When the water runs dry, 
You get that look in your eye, drinkin all that rye 

Tell me, what do you know ’bout how it goes? 
I’m about to go for broke, 
Let it all go up in smoke, tell me what do you know

CHORUS

These Are The Hills

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

These are the hills where my heart sings its song 
These are the fields where my feet walk along 
These are the woods where I’ll lay my body down 

These are the trees where my mind wanders off 
These are the valleys where I wait for dawn 
These are the rails where the train takes me home 

Round and round and round and round we go 
Where we stop at last nobody knows 

These are the days when I aim to seem strong 
These are the nights when my shadow grows long 
These are the times when I need to be carried on

Among The Unknown

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

If you ever find yourself in Stephens County 
Head on down to Davis Creek and take it east 
You’ll see the White Oak hanging low, and you’ll know 
You’ve found your lover’s home 

If you take the train to Wilmington in summer 
When the air is thick as steam and ever warmer 
Give yourself a day to see a Cape Fear sunrise 
And you’ll behold what burned in his eyes 

If you walk the half day to and up South Mountain 
Look for the well but don’t go peering in 
The devil’s got your brother and fifty more 
And at dusk he’ll be knocking at your door 

If you ever make it down to Charleston Bay 
Ask for Reverend Porter, he’ll point the way 
In old Magnolia churchyard stands a stone 
For your son, among the unknown

There's a River Between Us

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

There’s a river between us that seems like it’s deeper than deep 
And the bridges that bind us ain’t quite what they used to be 
Better watch what goes ‘round– throwing words like stones is dangerous play 
I won’t forgive, but you pray to God I’ll forget what you say 

You see the road to perdition is paved in revelation and blood 
Every step of the way you will pay for the love that you took 
I’m not going down, no I’m not going down in this game 
You know I’m a sure shot, baby, and I waste no time with my aim

I see weakness in mercy and glory in honor and pride 
Where there’s smoke there’s a fire that I started, and it blackens the sky 
Better get on out, better get on out while you can 
There’s hell to pay, honey, oh, and you’re a poor, poor man 

I haven’t gone blind yet on this “eye for an eye” bet 
I haven’t gone blind yet on this “eye for an eye” bet 
I haven’t gone blind yet on this “eye for an eye” bet 
I haven’t gone blind yet on this “eye for an eye” bet 

There’s a river between us that rages like blood ‘neath my skin 
In the spring it will crest and spill out over all of the plain 
Even if I drown, I’m gonna make it to the other side 
Where there’s a will there’s a way, and I’ll never give up on the fight

Love Me, Leave Me

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

Love me, love me like the sun 
We’ll burn up before the day is done 
Leave me, leave me like a bird 
Fly low and fly slow if you prefer 

Don’t believe this is goodbye 
I won’t be far if you just close your eyes 

Love me, love me like the morn 
Your breath on my body, keep me warm 
Leave me, leave me like the rain 
Fall down and wash our fear away 

CHORUS

Love me, love me like the night 
Pull me close and hide me from the light 
Leave me, leave me like November 
My song, so easy to remember 

Don’t believe this is goodbye 
Don’t, for a second, wonder why 
Don’t doubt I love you by and by 
I won’t be far if you just close your eyes

Standing Still

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

Get up, let’s go 
Get up, let’s go 
If we’re gonna make it, we can’t waste a minute 
If it’s one thing I know 
Oh, one thing I know 
Someone is taking the chances we’re missing 
And we can’t believe in something we can’t see 

Come on, come out 
Come on, come out 
If it means something to you, it’s yours– take it with you 
I don’t know how 
I don’t know how 
I never knew I’d be counting on you 
We’ve got a long way to go, but this is all that we’ve known 

You can read into this what you will 
But I can’t carry on standing still 
Baby, I’m going somewhere 
Gotta go somewhere 

Look at us now 
Look at us now 
What feels like spinning is just the beginning 
Without a doubt 
Without a doubt 
To hell with this city– gonna leave it behind me 
And we won’t be tamed. We’ll define our own way

Falling

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

I’ve never been Winter’s lover
I’ve never been so inspired, no
I can feel the chill returning
Somewhere there’s a fire burning, oh
Quietly without warning
Suddenly it’s morning
And I’m falling for you

It’s a funny feeling to know
I used to call this home, home
Lookin’ at the roads I traveled
The secrets they unravel, oh
Five o’clock twilight
Snow glitters in the streetlight
And I’m falling for you

I’m falling for you
I’m falling for you
I’m falling for you
I’m falling for you, oh

Never say never, no
Let my guard down and let it go
And I’m falling for you

CHORUS

Hush Now

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

Hush now, quietly tiptoe around, now
Don’t make a mess of this, love
I’ve been trying so hard to be good, oh, to be good
I’ve been trying so hard to be good

Hush now, I’ve got something to say now
Though it feels like it’s far too late
It’s just about right, just about right
Oh it feels like it’s just about right

Like the willow, I bend so low
The view from down here’s always up, but that’s never enough
I burn brighter, wrestle deeper
There’s no sense living this way; one foot in the grave

Hush now, the world around me in sleep, now
I’m still looking for something
Worth trying to dream for anymore
What’s the point of trying to dream anymore?

Hush now, little baby, don’t say a word, little baby
Everything you want’s just a matter of will so be still

CHORUS

Think You Know Someone

Lyrics by: Clint Thomson

Hey babe, you don’t look the same to me
Something’s changed in your eyes
Hey babe, you don’t act the same way now
Something has gone awry

Hey man, you don’t talk the way you did
Is this a change all in my head
You say you…you don’t feel the way you did
Could it be something that I said

Hey you, you’ve changed too much for me
I thought I knew you, but I was wrong
Could it be that you’ve lost your taste for me
Could it be we’ve both moved on
Could it be we’ve both moved on

La di da, la di da di da di da…

The State I'm In

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges & Clint Thomson

Water, water all around me
Sinking slowly, and I can hardly breathe
Am I just a fool for a life I won’t lead?
Am I just a fool for a love that won’t be?

Can’t stop, I can’t stop the bleeding
I shudder to think what I’ve been missing
Am I too far gone to ask for mercy?
Am I too far gone to leave anything behind me?

Days like these the air feels heavier than I’m sure it’s ever been
And nothing good ever came from giving in over and over again
And all your small rejections add so much dead weight
and they complicate the state I’m in

Lately, there’s not a lot to say
So maybe I should walk away
Am I two steps back, never one to get ahead?
Am I two steps back by everything I’ve left unsaid?

Just a plane that never got off the ground
Just a wanderer that never left this town
And I’m gonna see this through, do it for you and sleep in the bed I’ve made
Just don’t let me lose my way
No, please don’t let me fade

CHORUS

'Til You Are Mine

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

When the westward sky burns out
And all that stands fades to black
When the sounds of night descend to the ground
I’ll be on the way back

When the sunrise steals the stars
And all I dreamed drifts away
When what I need is to be right where you are
I won’t let a thing get in my way

I’ll follow the railroad to Colorado
I’ve got my eyes set on bigger sky
There aint a mountain, no, gonna keep me, I know
I will wander these hills for miles
‘Til you, ‘til you are mine

When, at last, I see your face
And the train begins to slow
When what I’ve waited so long for falls into place
I’ll hold on and never let go

CHORUS

Happy

Lyrics by: Karen Bridges

Bending backroads down 
Blankets of leaves all around 
We’ll ignore all the signs of the storm 
Like we want it to keep raining on 
Like we want it to keep raining on 

You said I think I love you 
I think I’ve always known 
The one thing on which we can clearly depend 
Every good thing sees an end 
Every good thing sees an end 

But I’m happy 
I’m happy 
I’m happy 
Singing my sad song for you
