Track Name: Never Too Far

and i love the way you
speak to me so sweetly
tellin me bedtime stories
when my mind just won't let me rest
wide open eyes
soon tell the world goodnight
falling asleep by your side's
like i've won the biggest prize
biggest prize

wha ah ah ah oh if you're ever too far i'll sing you to me

if i'm ever too far just call for me
la da da da da

if you're ever too far i'll sing you to me
you could never be too far
if i'm ever too far just call for me

Track Name: Somewhere Sweeter
i can't explain it, and i don't wanna turn this into a science
i just wanna let these feelings take control of me
my heart is so much smarter than my head
in this situation i'd normally run away
and i'm not trying to stay in this idle position to keep myself safe

(letting go) i think you should try it cause you say you feel it
(letting go) we're wasting our energy fighting it's stronger than us
(letting go) if you do it too baby we just might find somewhere
(letting go) sweeter ehh yeah yeah…ehh yeah yeah

you say you're not good at being two, thinking you're not ready
but you spend all your time with me
and you built a wall that's stronger than steel
because the ones before me gave you so much hell
and i'm not trying to stay in this idle position to keep myself safe

(letting go) i think you should try it cause you say you feel it
(letting go) we're wasting our energy fighting it's stronger than us
(letting go) if you do it too baby we just might find somewhere
(letting go) sweeter ehh yeah yeah…ehh yeah yeah

follow me, follow me, i'll take you somewhere sweeter
somewhere sweeter
Track Name: Shine
You're a brighter star than any picture screen could portray,
Beautiful heart, so useless if it's hiding away
Pretty baby, i need you to see how amazing you are

Before you sleep tonight, know that you shine!

If you give up now, it would have all been in vain
What about the creator who gave you big dreams
Pretty baby, I need you to realize, you're right where you should be

Before you sleep tonight, know that you shine!

Nothin worth it is a peice of cake
Just stay believin even when skies are grey
No matter how long it takes!

So before you sleep tonight, know that you shine

Pretty baby, you've got to know that you shine
You shine so brightly, Pretty baby

Know that you shine

You shine so brightly
Track Name: Breaking Free
Some think I'm the luckiest girl alive but what they don't know is…

Every night I lie awake, contemplating my mistakes
But he can't be to blame, they all can't be the same it must be me
Gave an inch he took a mile, seems to be a never-ending cycle
He can't be to blame, something's gotta change it must be me

Things I gotta own, learn from my mistakes
The only way to control just where i'm going

Finally breaking free, breakin into me
In touch with how I really feel, what matters most me
I don't need saving
Cause the root of the problem is something I can overcome
It starts and ends with me I'm breakin free

Tell me what you see, when ur looking throu my window
It's like make believe
If you only knew when the shades go down
Then all hell breaks out
When there's no one else around
But he can't be to blame, somethin's gotta change it must be me

Things I gotta own, learn from my mistakes
The only way to control just where i'm going

Finally breaking free, breakin into me
In touch with how I really feel, what matters most me
I don't need saving
Cause the root of the problem is something I can overcome
It starts and ends with me I'm breakin free

I was deaf to the voice inside of me, but now it's as loud as can be
Denied myself before, no not anymore
Now I've got a choice to make, choose myself or my mistakes
Gotta choose me i'm finally breaking free

It's all coming together, It's all coming together
Everything's so clear, I'm finally breaking free

Some think i'm the luckiest girl alive
But what they don't know is
Track Name: Filthy Hearts (Heartwash)
We both have filthy hearts, dirtied by unassuming lovers
who played a part and left us scarred, afraid to fall
we both have twisted ideas of what we know love to be
though we believe in something better

let's take each other, to the heartwash
and give each other a fresh start,
let's take each other, to the hearwash
so maybe we can give in, give in, give in

we both have apprehensions about letting down our walls
it would take an army to get em down
we both have aspirations of finding a love that's real
but we've lost faith along the way

let's take each other, to the heartwash
and give each other a fresh start,
let's take each other, to the hearwash
so maybe we can give in, give in, give in

afraid of history repeating we hide
i'm so sorry i look away when you smile
it's so hard for me to stare you in the eyes
cause i feel myself melting

let's take each other, to the heartwash
and give each other a fresh start,
let's take each other, to the heartwash
so maybe we can give in, give in, give in

lets take each other to the heartwash
cause you and me we've got filthy filthy hearts
Track Name: Giddy
GIDDY

Didn't wanna brush my teeth tonight
Didn't wanna erase your kisses
from these lips of mine
How it tastes so sweet
I hope this scenario creeps up in my dreams
Can't wait to see you again
you already know my smile gives it away, away, away

When you kiss me, I get all giddy, like a little girl
but that's all about to change here and now

Didn't wanna put my pi's on,
cause your cologne is lingering on my skin
And I wanna breathe it in
How I wish tonight would never end
Can't wait to see you again
Cause you already know
My smile gives it away

When you kiss me, I get all giddy, like a little girl
But that's all about to change here and now
So try me again, I wanna show you what I'm made of
I'm crazy for you but you already know cause
my smile gives it away, away, away

Track Name: Perfectly Human
I'm so much more than a melody
So much more than a song I sing
Before you fall
take time, get to know me
I'm emotional, I am sweet
I'm not always a proper lady
I'll make you laugh
but you'll see me cry a few times

Cause I'm perfectly human
and I'm perfectly me
I'm perfecly God's creation
get to know me, Perfectly me

I'm a future fabulous mother
I'm gonna be my husband's best friend
I don't eat meat, or watch much tv
But I'll never try and change you for me
I'm not that person u see under the light
all the time, I've got insecurities
but I grow everyday, always gettin better
wait til u meet me next week

Cause I'm perfectly human
and I'm perfectly me
I'm perfecly God's creation
get to know me, Perfectly me

I thought it was something more
but he fell in love with the strum of my guitar
and I fell in love with the way his lips took shape
as he smiled at me

But I'm just perfectly human
and I'm perfectly me
I'm perfecly God's creation
get to know me, Perfectly me
Track Name: Pleasant Surprise
You were delivered to me like snow in July
You bursted my bubble of the content single life
Like a gardner I never called
You came and planted flowers in my yard....
Now outside my window flowers bloom

Take the wheel, my pleasant surprise
Drive me to the place you dream of at night
I'll follow you, my pleasant surprise
Cause I think I like where you're headed

One touch of your skin to mine and I still feel it
Your lips on my neck ummm
And your scent is stuck on the tip of my nose
And it lingers

Take the wheel, my pleasant surprise
Drive me to the place you dream of at night
I'll follow you, my pleasant surprise
Cause I think iIlike where you're headed

We don't need no map
Just don't drive too fast
Cause i wanna take in the beauty
No directions
No expectations
Things are lookin lovely

Take the wheel, my pleasant surprise
Drive me to the place you dream of at night
I'll follow you, my pleasant surprise
cause I think I like where you're headed

Wanna go away with you
Wanna go away from here
Just you and me baby
Track Name: Chrissy DePauw feat. Jeff Yanero of The Ivy Walls - Spiraling
Feel like i don't know you anymore
You're becoming a stranger to my heart, heart, hooo hooo

Maybe I never knew who you really were
Maybe I never knew

Don't come any closer to the flame
One heart still beating, One heart to blame
Time comes cheap, a dirty facade
It's not that it healed us, it's that we forgot

Maybe I never knew who you really were
Maybe I never knew
Never knew who you really were, never never never

Corrupted, you can break me tonight,
Spiraling back down to earth
I'll hold you tight

Who who do you really know
Whoaahhh when the only thing constant is change

Corrupted, you can break me tonight,
Spiraling back down to earth
I'll hold you tight

Corrupted, you can break me tonight,
Spiraling back down to earth
I'll hold you tight,
Corrupted, I'll hold you tight, I'll hold you tight
You can break me tonight
I'll hold you tight, Who you really were
Spiraling back down to earth
Track Name: Hide Away
I wonder if you are as crazy about me as I am about you
and we're just two people trying to play it too damn cool
If that's the case baby we should just call it a day and head back to my place

cause I just wanna be alone with you
forget the world and all we have to do
let's hide away

I wonder if you are thinkin about how you can't sleep without me and we're just fools
runnin away from this fairytale
if that's the case sweetheart we should just
drop everything and head back to your place

cause I just wanna be alone with you
forget the world and all we have to do
let's hide away

wanna lay with you under starry skies
wanna wake with you in the morning light

cause I just wanna be alone with you
forget the world and all we have to do
let's hide away
Track Name: Thank You
You give me a dream
You give me strength and belief
You give me the tools that I need
And you say go my child make it a reality
You give me obstacles
But never without a purpose
So I trust and believe that I'm exactly where I should be
Where I'm headed you will carry me

Thank you for this beautiful life that you gave me
And I won't take it for granted no
Thank you for this beautiful life that you gave me
And I won't take it for granted, no

You give me the air that I breath
You give me just what I need to keep on living
You give me everything
But you also give me the freedom to be me
You give me a voice to sing
You give me a message that follows
So I trust and believe that I'm exactly where I should be
And where I"m headed you will carry me

Thank you for this beautiful life that you gave me
And I won't take it for granted no
Thank you for this beautiful life that you gave me
And I won't take it for granted, no

never will forget
the price you paid for me
because of you i'm free
you are the only one
i know for sure
who will never leave

Thank you for this beautiful life that you gave me
And I won't take it for granted, no
