Track Name: Gotta Be More to Life
Verse

Everyday goes by in a flash, Sometimes I don’t even know where I am
And I wonder, what’s it all for

And I Can’t remember the last time I saw you, Even though you’re right here, I can’t seem to find you
It seems we’re slippin' away

Chorus

Oh I’ve gotta pause to make sense of what’s been lost
And sit and hold your hand for a while, or longer
And there’s something wrong when each day has come and gone
And there’s an emptiness Oh that’s just not right
There’s gotta be more to life

Verse

These days can get so paralyzing, all I can do Is cry about it and I, I feel like I’m fallin”
Remember those days when we’d go missing? Not a care in the world, I sure do miss it
Can we get back to that?

Chorus

Track Name: Hard Love (feat. Stephen Joseph Antonelli)
Hard Love
Written by Michelle Lockey and Stephen Joseph Antonelli

Verse 1

Late nights in hell and that whiskey soaked smell
Your eyes say you’re sorry again

Weary and worn, wanna walk out that door
But I keep on comin' back, comin' back to live in this pain

Chorus

You're a hard love but your my love
I don't wanna leave, but I don't wanna stay
You're a hard love but your my love
This is the bed that we've made, and I hope it won't break
You're a hard, hard love, but you're mine

Verse
Our rusted old hearts still beat in the dark
The passion almost feels real
but your tender ways ruined by bitter days
is there any hope, any hope, behind all the tears?

Chorus

Bridge

Chorus

You're a hard love but your my love
I don't wanna leave, but I don't wanna stay
You're a hard love but your my love
This is the bed that we've made, and I hope we don’t break it
You're a hard, hard love, but you're mine
Track Name: I'm Movin' On
Verse 1:
You broke my heart, left me behind
This love story turned out all wrong
No more laughter, no more happy ever after
There's nothing left here to keep me hanging on..

Chorus

You fed me lies from the moment we met
Then you ripped the seams right out of my chest
And everything we had spilled right to the ground
But at least I finally found you out, I found you out
So now I’m movin' on

Verse 2
With this new truth, and some new thread
I’ll stitch together, everything that you wrecked
I’ll write another chapter… forget loves disasters
And with my eyes open wide, I’ll choose what’s next

Bridge

Chorus

All your lies from the moment we met
They just ripped the seams right out of my chest
and everything I had spilled right to the ground
but at least I found you out, I found you out..

mmmm mmmmm I'm movin on mmmmmmm
Track Name: Color Me
Verse

You wake me up and I feel the sky
Everything is Different now, where I lie
You helped me open up to a whole new way
Now I see the world is no longer dull or gray oh oh

Chorus

Oh you Color Me and you helped me believe
In life, in love in you
Oh you Color me

Verse

Here in our heart, we formed this hearthstone
It's a safe place we can call our own
Loves no longer an enemies face
It’s like a diamond we found in the shade

Chorus
Bridge Mmmm mmmmm
Chorus
Track Name: Forever Found
Verse 1

In the dark places I have seen
The beauty still remains
Keeping quiet, on the shelf
Waiting for a chance to come out

CHORUS

Once lost inside but now awake and loud
Forever Found
Waking up now
Forever Found

Verse 2

In the quiet places in between
The verses and refrains
A silhouette, on the shelf
Waiting for the time to come out

Chorus

Bridge (Instrumental)

Oh This wonderland
Reminds me to live

Chorus

Once lost inside but now awake and loud
Forever Found
Waking up now
Forever Found

Waking up now
Forever Found
Track Name: You're My World
Verse

When the fog is hanging low
On a drizzly afternoon
Your smile’s like the sunshine
it brightens up the room

I want your laughter in a jar
To be opened when I’m blue
You’re the tonic that I need
There’s nothing else for me but you

Chorus

Oooo
You’re my world
You fill my head, you fill my heart
Oooo
You’re my world
When you’re near, when you’re far

Verse

When I’m lying in the bath
Washing troubles off my skin
I’m thinking ‘bout you baby
you’re there through thick or thin

Chorus

Bridge

Chorus
Track Name: Deep Is My Soul
Deep Is My Soul

Verse 1
You're the one who makes me bites my tongue at night,
When words of love rise in my throat.
You feed and fan the flames of my mind,
Pulling on my weakness, till there's no hope.

Pre Chorus
Like a serpent, creeping on and on,
Always singing it's silent song...

Chorus
Deep is my soul,
As the devil sleeps forever in my head.
Soft is my heart,
As this tranquil love lies peaceful in my bed.

Verse 2
You are the one that pushes me to walk away,
by preying on my darkest fears
You punish me until I scream and cry in pain,
Spewing hateful words in my sobbing ears.

Chorus
Bridge
Deep Is my soul as the Devil lies in wait for me
ooo ooo
Chorus
Track Name: Free to Fly
Verse 1

Can you catch me if I fall
Mend my bones if I crash
let me climb over this wall
Shake these suspicions from my head

Pre-Chorus

But I wanna know
Yes I need to know

Chorus:

Am I free to fly free to fly
If I don't wanna stay
Are you strong enough to say goodbye
And watch me fly away

Verse 2

You were well timed at best
A flame rising from the dark
But are you a casualty of the past tense
Turned to ashes in my heart

Pre-chorus
Chorus

Bridge:

For far too long
I feel I’ve been standing on the edge
And for far too long
I feel I’ve been in over my head

Chorus

Am I free to fly free to fly
If I don't wanna stay
Are you strong enough to say goodbye
And watch me fly away

Watch me fly away
Am I free to fly?
Track Name: Heavy
Verse
There's a piece of me , that left when you left me
And it hurts, oh it hurts

I wanted to say so much, and I still feel your love
But the memory of your face, it burns, it burns on me

Chorus
It's Heavy, Heavy
and it smothers me, till I can't breath

It's Heavy, Heave
and it crushes me and I don't wanna be here

Verse
I can't reach for you, when nothing else seems true
and it's not ok, it's not ok

Chorus
Track Name: In The Dark (A Tale of Love)
Verse1:


I'm the shadow you catch in the corners of your mind,
and you think its the wind that brushes you by.

Your head starts to pound and the pain stops your heart.
When you see… me… watching you…. in the dark.

Chorus:

Should I tell you a tale that brings out your tears,
or do you want a love song you can sing through the years?
of chains and ropes that bind up your heart
While I take you silently… …Here .in the dark

Verse 2

For you I have a sweet silent surprise
It lies in the dark where it’s easy to hide
Don’t listen to me, I’m the scream in your head
but ‘fore to long its me……..you’ll want in your bed

Bridge

Chorus
Track Name: Upside Down (feat. Paul Cufflin)
Verse 1

Where did we go so wrong, losing our dreams?
We’re just a shadow sometimes it’s hard to breathe

Pre-Chorus

And I just don’t know,
No I just don’t know how to get it back

Chorus
How did we get upside down?
Did we forget, forget who we were?
How did we wind up so far… apart?
Will you please, please remind me who we are?
Let’s turn it around so we’re not, not upside down

Verse 2

I want us the way we were,
When my breath would catch, and we were sure

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

So I cross my chest and hope I don’t die
