Track Name: Careless and Wild
My mama says I'm too loud
running around being proud
My daddy says don't worry
take your time don't hurry

Everything comes and goes
and we're all in this alone
I can't find it anywhere
the beginning of the tear

So take this child
careless and wild
Cover her in lace
and wipe that smile
of her face
Set her free
Set her free

I am done with foolish things
time for pearls and diamond rings
Can you help me find my mark
Oh where do I start

I am ready for the show
All my burdens in a row
Train ticket in hand
It will be so grand

So take this child
so careless and wild
Cover her in lace
and wipe that smile of her face
Set her free
Set her free

Erase those tired cares
Let your hands be bare
And drink up your mistakes
And remember the late
the late

So take this child
so careless and wild
Cover her in lace
and wipe that smile off her face
Set her free
Set her free
Set her free
Set her free
Track Name: Little Brave Word
Sewed up my cocoon with a golden thread
Put those words down into bed
But every time you retrace lines
they're never the same
We will say in every way
who's to blame

I could remove my shield
Unscrew this jar I tightly sealed
But winds will take and will shake
the fragile kind
And then I'll sense the circumstance
In my side

A little brave word
Loud enough to be heard
From the farthest corners
Of the farthest borders
You break down stone
To build your new home

Locate what I found to save
A place the universe engraved
Wooden moon and metal sun
neon star
Soft as night I didn't fight
against your arm

We all have secrets we have lies
Build walls build dams to divide
Oh us from them don't let them in
what's on below
Behind closed doors beneath floor boards
they'll never know

A little brave word
Loud enough to be heard
From the farthest corners
Of the farthest borders
You break down stone
To build you new home

There I stayed til reason came to save my time
You won't choose and I will lose you from my sight
You can't stay but I can go you will lay
And I will sew up my cocoon where there is no room for you

A little brave word
Loud enough to be heard
From the farthest corners
Of the farthest borders
You break down stone
To build your new home
You break down stone
To build your new home
You break down stone
To build your new home
Track Name: Tell My Lover I Couldn't Stay
Out if maps and cigarettes too
Follow the arrow into my view
Take my picture share your glass
We'll wait for the storm to pass
We can read by TV light
Let's play games to waste the time

And I left yesterday
Not one word did he say
Tell my lover I couldn't stay
Tell my lover I couldn't stay
Tell my lover I couldn't stay
Tel my lover I couldn't stay

Let me tell you I don't bite
But if I like you I just might
Called me baby held the door
But when I leave no no more
Do my calls seem desperate
Boy you know I'm reckless

And I left yesterday
Not one word did he say
Tell my lover I couldn't stay
Tell my lover I couldn't stay
Tell my lover I couldn't stay
Tell my lover I couldn't stay

Foggy windows from heated breath
Keeping it quiet that's the test
Going somewhere with no plan
Am I woman cause you're a man
Please don't tell my sister
And I won't tell your brother

And I left yesterday
Not one word did he say
Tell me lover I couldn't stay
Tell my lover I couldn't stay
Tell me lover I couldn't stay
Tell my lover I couldn't stay

And I will miss your face and everything else
You'll only miss yourself
And you won't miss my sounds or the ground that I walked upon
But you will sing along

And I left yesterday
Not one word did her say
So tell my lover I couldn't stay
Tell my lover I couldn't stay
Tell my lover I couldn't stay
Tell my lover I couldn't stay
Tell my lover I couldn't stay

Out of maps
Where am I going
Out of maps
And he knows it
Track Name: Stumble Between
I stumble between the door and your bed
Over t-shirts and socks other clothes that we've shed
But I feel fine maybe it's the wine
That's gone to my head

I laugh and I blush I modestly hide
And you place your hand in the curve of my side
I'm scared to open my palm and revel to you all
The times that I lied

Delightfully misleading
I could go on still believing
That you need me want me crave me
Thought you'd be the one to save me
So won't you please undress me
Just go on and send your message through the night

It's past five AM I'm not ready for sleep
But you yawn and squint with your face in the sheets
I take this as your sign your unspoken word or line
To ask me to leave

I search for my shoes in that mess on the floor
I look back at you I'm still hungry for more
And you point to your lips for one last final kiss
Before I'm not your anymore

Delightfully misleading
I could go on still believing
That you need me want me crave me
Thought you'd be the one to save me
So won't you please undress me
Just go on and send your message through the night

Next time I see you in day time
I will whisper you were one mine
Please don't miss me I won't miss you
I'll be back soon I'll be back soon

I stumble between my gut and my head
And sometimes my gut wants me back in your bed
Track Name: Want Me Soon
My feet hurt please untie my shoes
How long must I run after you
I can't run my life away
So won't you just won't you just stay in one place

Tummy aches from swallowing my pride
Poison words burning my inside
The things you say are like arsenic
The things you say they make me sick with love

Bodies ache
Hearts do break
Won't you want me soon

I can't see hazy in my eyes
I guess love really can be blind
Visions of you in my sleep
These visions of you they just won't keep for long

Broken hands from holding too much hope
I still try to grasp you and to grope
Your weight is too much for my bones
But with you my hands would never feel alone

Bodies ache
Hearts do break
Won't you want me soon

Everything has changed
Everything's the same
I have bent far too much
Places in me you can't touch

Bodies ache
Bodies ache
Hearts do break
Hearts do break
Won't you want
Won't you want me soon
