Win

You win
I'm walking away
I'll take the blame for sin
I'm leaving the war

It's a battlefield 
And you're always on the opposite side
It's been too long
And the distance is double wide

You say you don't know
How much you've hurt me
You say you don't show
The daggers in your eyes

You can take the victory 
I'm tired of this fight
I don't what we're fighting for
I don't know who's in the right

Why is it growing on me ? ~


Where is this going
And why is it growing on me?
I don’t chances
On welcomed advances

This isn’t like me

It’s past mid day and you’re still here
It was a one night, made it clear
But we’re having drinks in the sunshine
And singing in this house of mine

It’s going to end in heartbreak
It always does I know
But I’m going to let it go
Because I’m lonely
Because you’re fun
Because it’s been a long time since I’ve had anyone home

The sun is setting
And I’m betting
You’re going to stay the night too
The weekend is almost over
And you leave a note with a four leaf clover
And a phone

It’s going to end in heartbreak
It always does I know
But I’m going to let it go
Because I’m lonely
Because you’re fun
Because it’s been a long time since I’ve had anyone home

Stronger Anyhow


I’ve cried myself to sleep
Over petty little things
I’ve let the water run
Over my broken wings
They are coming in the dark
Staining tears leaving a mark
On my face

I’ve put the blade on my skin
I’ve taken the last shot to win
Whatever silly game they were playing at the bar
And put a handsome stranger in my car

I’ve been here and there
I’ve been everywhere
Fall & stumble
I’ve broken down and crumbled

I was the perfect poster child
teenage sweetheart
I prayed and petitioned
Staked a claim on church rendition
But the sun never shone

Yes I’ve cried myself to sleep
Over petty little things
I’ve let the water run
Over my broken wings

I lost my faith I lost my way
And what would mother say today
It doesn’t matter now
I’m stronger anyhow

She's a firecracker ~

She's a firecracker quiet until you light the flame

Big hair and red nails

She's a firecracker whiskey never fails

Mmmmmhhhh

She's a firecracker fire on the ground

She's a firecracker let's dance till we can't stand around

We'll be the last ones and then we'll be alone

She's a firecracker when you bring her home

Mmmmmhhh

A firecracker until the sun comes out

Tomorrow she's all Black suits and high heels

But tonight she's gonna show you how a firecracker feels 

She's a firecracker

and then you're all alone

She's  a firecracker when you bring her home

I told you ~

I told you you wouldn't like me if you knew me
I told you I wasn't good enough for you
And that if you got to know me
I wouldn't be what you expected

I told you I'd hurt you
But you said
You said you'd fight my demons

I told you I wouldn't make you happy
I was only good on the outside
I warned you I wasn't good enough for you

I pleaded for you not to give me hope
Hope is evil
It shatters faster than ice sheets in the summer

But you promised
You'd light my shadows
And I was too tired to fight back

I told you I wasn't the girl you needed
I'd never be the one you wanted
And if you got to know me
I wouldn't be what you expected

I warned you ~ there is nothing to reproach ~
