Track Name: Blind
blind by be steadwell


i’m that white mouse running round the maze
happy with my bit of cheese happy to be safe


im that dumb girl they all talk about
she thinks she's so happy
she still aint figured out


love should move me just
like a boat and sail
love should clarify but it’s just a veil


And im that dumb girl they all talk about
she thinks she's so happy
she still aint figured out


i've wanted for so long
simple. happy. nothing crazy
i've loved you for so long
blindly, blindly, i could not see


babygirl she loves to have her fun
and the sky would fall down if she
don't get what she wants


babygirl she just wants to be free
when she's gone i’m left alone
it’s something she can't see


you're my ignorance
you're the ghost of bliss
i know love can hurt
but not feel like this


when i love i've turned a cheek or two
though i know you're hopeless
i'd do anything for you


i’ve wanted for so long
simple, happy. nothing crazy
i've loved you for so long
blindly, blindly i can not see wrong.


i've wanted for so long
simple. happy. nothing crazy
i've loved you for so long
blindly, blindly, i could not see
Track Name: Anything for You
i should never feel so lonely
when i lie next to you
i should never wake
and feel for the air
but some days i do

so i'm rising from the bed
thoughts are screaming in my head tell me
now is the time to run
when i get to the door
i am falling to the floor
in my weakness i come undone

love is not a word
it's something that I do
and baby everyday i'm deeper with you
and you'll never doubt
that what i say is true cuz
no matter how it hurts
if you ask me to.

i'd do anything for you
i no longer have a say
and no matter how i try
it's too late to walk away

give her the world
tell her you'll stay
build sandcastles till the tide has changed-now
let the girl go
take out the trash
i try not to read you by the chapters of your past

but you were right
i am weak
i am fragile as a leaf
just one breath and i could blow away
i wish i could express
all the power you possess
but your love is not
in what you say

love is not a word
it's something that you do
and baby everyday i'm deeper into you
and you'll never doubt
that what i say is true cuz
no matter how it hurts
if you ask me to.

i'd do anything for you
i no longer have a say
and no matter how i try
it's too late to walk away

i'd do anything for you
i'll do anything it takes
i will walk the darkest road
if it ends in your embrace
Track Name: heart of a pessimist
you stole my love
like a heavy load
old suitcase full of
black clothes
everyday was a funeral

you stole my heart
like a high stakes heist
right look left
no one's in sight oh
something in your eyes

i had the heart of a pessimist
you got the heart of the romantic

i had the heart of a pessimist
darling what you do with

my ugly world
makes me want to cry
all of my people
struggle up until we die
turn off the news tonight

your pretty world
cast a different light
you light up the room with a true smile
wear your chains like silver lines

i had the heart of a pessimist
you have the heart of a romantic

i had the heart of a pessimist
darling what you do with it

there are days
i can't wake up
there is no amount of rest
that will keep all this history
from burning in my head.
YOU
pull my body
to your body

you say baby use your love.

while i dream of ways
to kill the man
you just want to give him hugs.

you stole my blue
like a yellow light
quiet and brilliant as the sunrise
kiss away the night

morning i wake
to my woman's lips
everything soft when we touch like this
live for a moment as an optimist

i had the heart of a pessimist
you have the heart of a romantic

i had the heart of a pessimist
darling what you do with it
Track Name: allright
allright

moonlight and rooftop
and midnight city glow
whispers and laughter
and finally letting go

take her the places
that you and i have been
hold her like a lover
and i will be your friend.

tell me how good it felt, how happy you both were
dancing and spinning the whole night was a blur
tell me how easy it was to pass the time
ask me if it's all ok, i'll tell you that it's fine


if it feels right
go to her tonight
don't want to cry
don't want to fight.
i'll be your friend. i'll be allright.

Sleep like a baby when you leave me alone
i played all night until i turn my fingertips to stone
touch me like nothing has changed when you come back
tell me you're happy, i tell you i'm so glad

tell me how long it's been
since you have felt so free
i know how hard it was to feel this way
with me

this pain should not change
the way you live your life
what you want is already done,
if only in your mind


if it feels right
go to her tonight
don't want to cry
don't want to fight.
i'll be your friend. i'll be allright.

put on a smile
put on a smile
it'll feel right
after a while
do it for us
do it for you
till i forget
what's really true

i can't blame you for the things you do
once upon a time i fit your shoes

moonlight and rooftop
and midnight city glow
whispers and laughter
and finally letting go

talking and kissing
she fits you like a glove
how could i protest
this falling into love

if it feels right
go to her tonight
don't want to cry
don't want to fight.
i'll be your friend. i'll be allright.
Track Name: gilded cage
i had a dream
in feathers i was adorned
i felt my wings
i flew in a life before
and when i woke
i still knew how to fly
but gravity returned when i saw your eyes

the arms of spring carry me from the freeze
and all the trees are proud in their gown of green
when every life around you begins to grow
but something in your heart makes you feel alone

so im crossing my fingers
and i count the days
and i look for the old you but somethings changing
can't move and im stuck in place
and you love me but you never let me fly away
clip my wings with a promise made
and i'm held in your arms like a gilded cage
just let me go let me go now.


i know your woes
i've traveled your path before
the fear you feel
to lose what once felt like home

the look of love
i give you is still the same
but looking back
i find that your eyes have changed

so im crossing my fingers
and i count the days
and i look for the old you but somethings changing
can't move and im stuck in place
and you love me but you never let me fly away
clip my wings with a promise made
and i'm held in your arms like a gilded cage
just let me go let me go now.

you want to protect me
before you neglect me but
if you respect me then
you would just let me go

the rain that day
freckled your silent face
and every word you spoke
it turned into grey
and falling out of love is a slow song
and when it ends you find you've known all along

so im crossing my fingers
and i count the days
and i look for the old you but somethings changing
can't move and im stuck in place
and you love me but you never let me fly away
clip my wings with a promise made
and i'm held in your arms like a gilded cage
just let me go let me go now.
Track Name: the one
You already know
I am insecure
Could never believe that
I could be all yours. look at
all the girls around you.
You say that you won't
Look at what they got
Look at what I don't

You look like a god
Sitting on your thrown
You compose a thunder
Beating on your drums
she say baby can't you see it
you could be the one
she said you already have me
Everything you want

you are the one
why won't you be it
you are the one
why can't you see it?
you are the one
why can't you feel it
why can't you feel it?

fuckin up my posture
i'm always trying to fold
trying to be smaller
be invisible
don't wanna be the center
the dead and burning star
i wanna be the flower
watching from the wall

stand up on a stage
look out at the crowd
some are sitting quiet
some are talking loud
all i see is me
falling to the ground
all i see is demons
try to tear me down

you are the one
why can't you see it?
you are the one
why can't you be it?
you are the one
why can't you feel it
why can't you feel it
why can't you feel it?

i have been a goddess
in the mirror's gaze
i have been a beggar
starving for your praise

Stare into a darkness
night as black as coal
call to the orisha
heal this wounded soul.

you already know
i am insecure
i could never believe that
i could be the one
so say it myself and
I hear the words from you
i'm waiting for the moment
i know it is true

you are the one
why can't you be it
you are the one
why can't you see it
you are the one
why can't you feel it?
why can't you feel it
why can't you feel it?

I am the one
when will i know it?
i am the one
why can't i show it?
i am the one when will i own it?
when will i own it
when will i own it?
Track Name: don't go
she
hates when i smoke cigarettes
i tried to quit for her i guess
i never managed to
they say it takes three days to clean
your system of the nicotine
how long's it take for you

i am afraid but
somewhere i know
you won't be happy until you go
my lips betray me
i never meant to say

don't go
don't go
don't go
don't go

sleep
she doesn't keep me company
she never was that fond of me
anyway
now
everyday is like a dream
time it slips away from me
i've lost another day

i am afraid
you will forget
i ever made you smile like this
my lips betray me
i never meant to say

don't go
don't go
don't go
don't go no no please

don't go
don't go
don't go
don't go

love
just before she drove away
she never looked at me that way
before
she
is crawling out of love with me
but the hole it got so deep
we've got a while to go

now that you're gone
i am afraid
i will forget all of our mistakes
my lips betray me
i beg for you to stay

don't go
don't go
don't go
don't go

don't go
don't go
don't go
don't go

they say it takes three days to clean
your system of the nicotine
how long's it take for you
