Play The Game

One Degree

Give me your patience baby

Give me your undivided love

Give me a reason to behave

Give me a purpose baby

I'm waiting for your loyalty

Give me a reason to behave

I've got a new way to play the game

Give me your silence baby

You're at the tip of my tongue

I got your something in my veins

I've got a new way to play the game

I come whenever you call...

Give me your patience baby

Give me your undivided love

Give me a reason to behave

I've got a new way to play the game

I come whenever you call...

Cave

I'm tired of taking all the blame

I'm sure you're tired just the same

All these years are rollin into one

All these ties have got to come undone

You corner me with yesterdays

You stand your ground and state your case

That you never wanted anyway

Cause you know you know you know

I'll cave

You're really gonna change this time

You think you're gonna walk a straight line

If losing everything won't change your mind

If you won't try neither can I

You corner me with yesterdays

You stand your ground and state your case

That you never wanted anyway

Cause you know you know you know

I'll cave

Even though you lie, you believe what you say

Even when you fall, you fall with such grace

Even though it hurts,  I'll forgive you anyway

Cause you know you know you know

​I'll cave

You corner me with yesterdays

You stand your ground and state your case

That you never wanted anyway

Cause you know you know you know

I'll cave

LET ME GO

Now you're running round telling everyone

That I'm the crazy one

Ain't no use not telling the truth

Baby just put down your guns

I've tried to compromise, 

That's just me backing down

I've never been one to leave it undone

But you keep dragging me around

All these years, all these years

Wasted in the shadows of all your fears

And if you can't love me

If you can't love me let me go

There's nothing you can do 

We've come unglued

The pieces never fit

Yeah you need me now

but you didn't know how

Back when I wanted it

You broke me down, you put me on the ground

I could never give enough

When I know you're gone then I can move on

So baby just give me up

All these years, all these years

Wasted in the shadows of all your fears

And if you can't love me

If you can't love me

All these years, all these years

Wasted in the shadows of all your fears

And if you can't love me

If you can't love me let me go

Earthquake

I already know that I need you

What I wouldn't give just to feel you

Imagining dreams that I can't undo

But nothing hurts like the truth

It always seems so easy

Like it's just supposed to be

I'm starting to feel like this world's too small

It all comes down to just two weeks

And I'm looking for signs

As the clock ticks by

And I'm counting the days and I pray

You shake me

You shake me

Like an earthquake you shake, you shake me

You shake me

I already know you'll outgrow me

To have you once is all I need

To you I might be just a piece

But you're my everything

And I'm looking for signs

As the clock ticks by

And I'm counting the days and I pray

You shake me

You shake me

Like an earthquake you shake, you shake me

You shake me

Sweet salvation of the rain

Pouring down on me

I try to wash the pain away

But it won't come clean

A changing of the tides,

to cleanse my weeping eyes

And push my fears aside

Sometimes the wine numbs the hurt

Another day and you're not here

I've watched the days turn to years

Every time it's just one line

Another month crawls by without you

Sometimes the wine numbs the hurt

I feel the warmth of heavy hearts

Glad they aren't here, where we are

I wish words could heal wounds

Sometimes the wine numbs the hurt

Sometimes the wine makes it worse

My truth stares me in the face

And I can't breathe

It cuts through me like a blade

And my heart bleeds

A shedding of my skin,

to feel whole once again,

I let my demons in

Sometimes the wine numbs the hurt

I feel the warmth of heavy hearts

Glad they aren't here, where we are

I wish words could heal wounds

Sometimes the wine numbs the hurt

Sometimes the wine makes it worse

Have faith and just believe

Whatever's meant to be will be

With the strength to part the seas

And bring me to my knees with one degree

I have faith and I believe

But Faith just don't believe in me

Sometimes the wine numbs the hurt

I feel the warmth of heavy hearts

Glad they aren't here, where we are

I wish words could heal wounds

Sometimes the wine numbs the hurt

I feel the warmth of heavy hearts

Glad they aren't here, where we are

I wish words could heal wounds

Sometimes the wine numbs the hurt

Sometimes the wine makes it worse

Wood Panels & Wine

It's a cold dark place

They'll never see my face

They'll never hear a word I say

You like it that way

They'll never find me out

I got myself locked down

All my intentions hit the ground

You got me so strung out

It's like you got a gun 

And you press it to the side of my head

I say what you want me to say

Then you leave me for dead

Breathe it in it just feels right

Focus on a faded line

You got me all in my mind

Until the well runs dry

It's like you got a gun and you 

And you press it to the side of my head

I say what you want me to say

Then you leave me for dead

Oooh

What you so confused about

Why you always bring me down

You got some nerve to call me out

But, I know your secret

It's like you got a gun 

And you press it to the side of my head

I say what you want me to say 

Then you leave me for dead

It's like you got a gun 

And you press it to the side of my head

I say what you want me to say 

Then you leave me for dead

Leave me for dead

Oooh

SLOW MOTION

I flew all the way to Monterey

Just to get away, from you

I say I'm fine but I am not ok

And I get left behind, and I wait

I'm in slow motion

I'm getting good at getting let down

I'm in slow motion

I breathe in and I breathe out

I'm a mess and I can't argue that

It's an honest fact, I know

But I can't seem to stay high long enough

I just feel the rush and it's gone

I'm in slow motion

I'm getting good at getting let down

I'm in slow motion

I breathe in and I breathe out

All the time in the world

You got All the time in the world

All the time in the world

You got all the time in the world

Til you don't

I'm in slow motion

I'm getting good at getting let down

I'm in slow motion

I breathe in and I breathe out

UTAH

He's seen every sunrise

since the day he left my side

Haven't heard the comfort of his voice 

Just trusting he's alive

Bring him home

Winding through a mountain trail 

The air thins with every step

He'll walk until the moon is high 

His lungs reach for every breath

Bring him home

Find him bring him back

But don't harm him I need him intact

He's my medicine

I need him to breathe I'm putting out a bounty

Send the canines down, let 'em go 

Til they sniff him out bring him back home

He's my medicine 

I need him to breathe I'm putting out a bounty

Cause he's wanted

My mind wanders in the darkness

Keeps me up at night

Sounds I never knew were there

When he's gone they come to life

Bring him home

Unfamiliar voices

from the bones of this old house

I feel so small here all alone

The walls keep pushing out

Bring him home

Find him bring him back

But don't harm him I need him intact

He's my medicine

I need him to breathe I'm putting out a bounty

Send the canines down, let 'em go 

Til they sniff him out bring him back home

He's my medicine 

I need him to breathe I'm putting out a bounty

Cause he's wanted

Utah, you've been bad to me,

bad to me, bad to me

Utah, you've been bad to me,

bad to me, bad to me

Find him bring him back

But don't harm him I need him intact

He's my medicine

I need him to breathe I'm putting out a bounty

Send the canines down, let 'em go 

Til they sniff him out bring him back home

He's my medicine 

I need him to breathe I'm putting out a bounty

Cause he's wanted

Carbon

Eyes closed tight my hands are tied up 

With your love, it's a hold up

Outta my mind with no defenses

No witness, just reckless

 

Carbon you show your worth

You light your fires and watch them burn

Carbon you show your worth 

You could be diamond but you're just dirt

 

Twisted words and bad intentions

So i got a vengeance, for your conviction

It's in your veins, you're a head case

You're a block maze, you just waste space

 

Carbon you show your worth

You light your fires and watch them burn

Carbon you show your worth 

You could be diamond but you're just dirt

 

Go on go on your way

Leave me barely breathing

Go on go on your way

Leave me barely breathing

 

Carbon you show your worth

You light your fires and watch them burn

Carbon you show your worth 

You could be diamond but you're just dirt

blame

I got my hands tied

I got my eyes closed tight

Expectations high

I should have tried to fight

You got your vengeance

And you refuse to give in

Conversations that we had in  my head

Even though I let you go

I'm all alone and I know

I didn't even try to make you stay

I held the door and watched you walk away

I can't cry anymore, cause I'm the one to blame

I can't cry anymore, cause I'm the one to blame

I got my hindsight

It never fails to shed light

But it's too late now, to change your mind

Even though I let you go

I'm all alone and I know

I didn't even try to make you stay

I held the door and watched you walk away

I can't cry anymore, cause I'm the one to blame

I can't cry anymore, cause I'm the one to blame

Who's gonna win when you shut down

Who's gonna win when you shut down

Who's gonna win when you shut down

Who's gonna win when you shut down

When you shut down, When you shut down

Even though I let you go

I'm all alone and I know

I didn't even try to make you stay

I held the door and watched you walk away

I can't cry anymore, cause I'm the one to blame

I can't cry anymore, cause I'm the one to blame

Little bird
Little bird

Please little bird

Don’t fly away

If not forever just today

Your fragile love weighs heavily

Please Little Bird don’t fly away

Elevator doors

I see it all as it goes down,

the same room

but it’s different now

Silence, the only sound

I can tell by her face

this is not gonna be ok, 

that I’m not gonna be ok

 

People keep on walking,

just like they did before

but I can’t breathe

and I go down

with elevator doors

 

Waiting for the fall

I can’t control it all,

Suspended in the air

just hanging by a thread

Listen to the sound

of silence all around,

tell yourself to breathe

get ready for the fall

If you weren't gonna stay

why’d you come at all?

 

Waiting on a phone call,

one word said it all

So I can let it go, for good

This is not how it’s supposed to be

and I'm messed up, but listening

just waiting for my heart to hear the news

People keep on walking,

just like they did before

but I can’t breathe

and I go down

with elevator doors

 

Waiting for the fall

I can’t control it all,

Suspended in the air

just hanging by a thread

Listen to the sound

of silence all around,

tell yourself to breathe

get ready for the fall

If you weren't gonna stay

why’d you come at all?

I know I'm gonna lose you

But I keep holding on

Just give me one more moment

Before you let me fall

Battle scars will show the pain,

my heart has been to war

People keep on walking,

just like they did before

but I can’t breathe

and I go down

with elevator doors

 

Waiting for the fall

I can’t control it all,

Suspended in the air

just hanging by a thread

Listen to the sound

of silence all around,

tell yourself to breathe

get ready for the fall

If you weren't gonna stay

why’d you come at all?

 

Easy

I made my way to California

I watched the sun set on my heart

Why can't anything just be easy

It's always a mess and life gets hard

So let my bare feet take me to the water

Let the salt surround my soul

and kiss my skin

Let the truth wash away with the tide

For just one day, just one day

When the tide comes rolling in

I'll pick my truth back up again

'Cause nothing worth having, is easy

I try to run and end up sinking

I close the door it opens up again

I'm not afraid of turning pages

Patience is a virtue but

I haven't learned it yet

So let my bare feet take me to the water

Let the salt surround my soul

and kiss my skin

Let the truth wash away with the tide

For just one day, just one day

When the tide comes rolling in

I'll pick my truth back up again

'Cause nothing worth having, is easy

I won't give up, I won't give in

I won't give up, I won't give in

So let my bare feet take me to the water

Let the salt surround my soul

and kiss my skin

Let the truth wash away with the tide

For just one day, just one day

When the tide comes rolling in

I'll pick my truth back up again

'Cause nothing worth having, is easy

Across the water
Across the water

My tongue is tied, My throat is dry Head high, eyes wide

Can’t come at me without a fight

Straight out the gate, you got away but the rules are gonna change

can’t come at me without a fight

cause it’s too late now, cause it’s too late now, cause it’s too late

 

A light that shines across the water leaves me hang’n hang’n

The hope that love will always conquer leaves me hang’n hang’n

your words fall like rain, 

hit the ground and dissipate

There’s nothing left that you can say

you think you can levitate, throw out the rules of gravity

there’s nothing left that you can say

A light that shines across the water leaves me hang’n hang’n

The hope that love will always conquer leaves me hang’n hang’n

You gave it up when you walked away, 

Did you think that i’d give in so easily

But it hurts and I know that you can’t cause you’re broke but

you gave it up when you walked away

A light that shines across the water leaves me hang’n hang’n

The hope that love will always conquer leaves me hang’n hang’n

I know about you

(Let ém say what they want mmm)

It’s not hard to see right through

(Let ém say what they want mmm)

You state your opinion as truth (mmm)

I Know about you

(Let ém say what they want mmm)

 

Tell em all I’m no one

(Let ém say what they want mmm)

Just a joke you let your mouth run

(Let ém say what they want mmm)

But you can’t keep my name

off your tongue (mmm)

What you did can’t be undone

(Let ém say what they want mmm)

 

Better sit down, sit down,

Pretty, sit down, sit down

 

Head under water,

Feet don’t touch the ground

You try to pull me under,

But I'm not going down

Go on say what you want to,

Drag my name all over town

Put the target on my back,

But I'm not going down

Don’t you worry about me

(Let ém say what they want mmm)

Im'ma be okay

(Let ém say what they want mmm)

So keep talking shhh on my name (mmmmmmmmmmm)

Cause i ain't worried about a thing

(Let ém say what they want mmm)

 

Better sit down, sit down,

Pretty, sit down, sit down, pretty

 

Head under water,

Feet don’t touch the ground

You try to pull me under,

But I'm not going down

Go on say what you want to,

Drag my name all over town

Put the target on my back,

But I'm not going down

Not Going Down
Empty

Looking back to before

A girl like me would never be alone

I laid my heart down on the floor

For all to see, then ignore

I gave so much with no return

How many lessons must I learn

What did I think I was worth

I didn't know then how much it hurt

You give it away like it's nothing

You toss it around like it's free

It feels so damn good though in

that moment

Until that moment goes away

Don't give away what he can't replace

I guess it's easy for a broken heart

To throw on a band aid in the dark

But a patch won't stop the blood

Underneath, wait for the flood

You give it away like it's nothing

You toss it around like it's free

It feels so damn good though in

that moment

Until that moment goes away

Don't give away what he can't replace

You're so empty

You're so empty

You're so empty

You're so empty

You give it away like it's nothing

You toss it around like it's free

It feels so damn good though in

That moment

Until that moment goes away

Don't give away what he can't replace no,

Don't give away what he can't replace
