Alone 04:00
Feels like my life's in disarray I get down on my knees and try to pray I feel so lost So many questions, so little time Feels like I'm going out of my mind I'm confused I don't want you to see me cry Don't want you to look into my eyes I'm scared Unprepared I wanna do it alone Handle it all by myself I try to pretend I don't need anyone that I'm just fine I don't wanna show vulnerability to tell you how much you mean to me I can't care You're so unaware I bite my nails in frustration Pace back and forth, wait for the phone to ring But I can't give in Only one chance though it's come so close It's seems so far away and hopeless I'm just scared, feels so unprepared I wanna run and hide Deny that I have these feelings inside I'm just scared Feel so unprepared Copyright HER Records, SOCAN, SAC 2004.

I'm crying but you just ignore my tears as they fall to the ground I'm dying but you just close the door and you crush my hands I'm crawling, trying to stand, attempting to plant my feet on the ground And you see me trying to break free and you pushed me back on my knees You've caged me, ripped my heart in two I'm trying to get up - escape from you You breaked me, stepped on my soul, I'm trying to get lose - regain my whole And you tainted me but I let you and you slaved me I let you and you burned me I've never been so down No more I say (I'll be better off this way) I was prying into your mind trying to understand your ways I was lying to myself pretending to live in heaven when it was hell I fell down, got kicked on the floor when I tried to walk out your door And you saw me begging at your knees but you had a way to make me not want to free You tainted me You slaved me You burned me You tainted me You slaved me You burned me No more No more No more No more I'm better off this way Copyright HER Records, SOCAN, SAC 2004.

Why do we pretend to understand even when we can't hear the words? Why do we try to heal wounds through revenge instead of crying out our tears? Why do we fear the unknown and persecute the misunderstood? Why do our words fail to come when we try to speak our minds? I try but I'm afraid So many questions without answers I try to run away And I climb up to the sky and search deep within my heart Yet the answer I know is right before my eyes Why? Just Because Why? Why are we so afraid to die, but never even try to live? And why does it always seem that the bad wins over the good? Why can't we get satisfaction? We always focus on the negative Why can't we solve things through peace? Cause we're scared of silence I try but I'm afraid So many questions without answers I try to run away And I climb up to the sky and search deep within my heart Yet the answer I know is right before my eyes Why? Just Because Why? Why are the rich and beautiful in power? Why do we raise ourselves by lowering others? Why do we never find value in simple things? And why is 16 so sweet? Why do we never follow our gut instincts? We let others decide our fate Why is it that when you are rushing? It's when you're always late Why when we look into one's eyes we want to kiss them? Why do we say maybe every time we really mean yes? Why? Just Because Why? Copyright HER Records, SOCAN, SAC 2004.

No safehouse for me No freefall for you No escape for me I can't be unglued No saviour today Destruction's everywhere It sickens my taste You're so unaware It's all about power It's all about fame It's the lust of life This tainted way You have all the control And I shy to your throne You crushed them all And I cry alone You're my infliction I'm your affliction You're my addiction I'm your disease You twisted my heart You're my one escape I hated your ways but fell victim to that hate I needed you there You let me fall to my knees You murdered my soul And I become your disease I thought we were through but you pushed back again I lost all my senses, you killed my defense It all over now, let it fade away I entered your world and you've gone astray No safehouse for me No freefall for you No escape for me I can't be unglued Copyright HER Records, SOCAN, SAC 2004

Save You 02:50
You tried to see you're blinded by your own eyes You tried to be you're stopped by your own mind And I want you to be happy Cause I love you my dear And I can't help unless you want it You've got to You put yourself in agony By fighting between your heart and your head You make the little things catastrophes You're so far down on yourself you're seeing red Set yourself free Copyright HER Records, SOCAN, SAC 2004.

La La Love 04:14
You say I'm what you love who you wanna hold at night and kiss until the next sunrise You say I'm your everything Want me to wear your promise ring And keep you in my heart forever I say too many times have I walked down this line And been so misused Had my heart ripped in two But when you look into my eyes I get a feeling I've never felt inside that lets me know it'll be alright and tells me so that this is right And I say I love you (and you say you love me) And I say I love you (and you say you love me) You say I'm your perfect one when I'm with you, it's always fun And when I am gone, I still feel nearby You say you need me by your side To be sure to keep you in line Even though I know you'll always be true There's no other quite like you I feel the same when you're around It scares me to say 'I love you' outloud And I know that this must be true Cause you feel the same way that I do And even though I've been hurt before I know I won't fight that same war Cause my heart and head agree You're the perfect boy for me I say you're what I love Who I wanna hold at night And kiss until the next sunrise Copyright HER Records, SOCAN, SAC 2004.

Be With You 03:30
Close your eyes Don't let this dream end Close your mind Nothing can touch us here I don't wanna I try not to realize this is not true I can't let it I wanna feel this – what it's like to be with you Why can't you see how great this would be? Why don't you see how happy we could be? I (You) love you I'll (You'll) miss you I (You) want to be with you I (You) need to I feel you You feel the same for me You don't wanna You try not to realize this is true You won't let it but you feel it You wanna be with me too We tried to hide it Deep inside us We realized it was true Cause we let it And we felt it You wanna be with me too Copyright HER Records, SOCAN, SAC 2004.

Ambiguity 05:38
Drove out to our favourite place in the country Reclined the car seats into their lying position Turn the lights down low, Turn up the radio I gave myself to you Wish I was a virgin, not a slut at age 15 I continued on my path of self discovery More like the path of self destruction Went for your best friend Went to a secret hideaway Only three words are needed to describe how this story ends Then I loved you, now I hate you I loved you, it's all the same Then I loved you, now I hate you I loved you, and now I can't even say your name I never knew the consequences of my actions that night I felt so empty inside, as though I'd submitted my spirit Just one night to you, a universe to me I couldn't see what the truth was Nothing more than a bet, I was just your pet No one understood, I kept it deep inside All the pain that I felt My world was crashing down You both laughed at my tears, how could I have been so naive? I never wanna feel that same misery Then I loved you, now I hate you I loved you, it's all the same Then I loved you, now I hate you I loved you, and now I can't even say your name Now they all wonder why I'm so cold hearted I loved someone once, and never want to love again I shield myself from it, love seems like such a trap I was caged, I couldn't fly, I ran away, I wanted to die I loved me, you just hated me I loved you, it's all the same And I loved you, still don't wanna hate you I loved you, and now I can't even say your name Then I loved you, you just hated me I loved you, and it still hurts to hate you I can't even say your name Copyright HER Records, SOCAN, SAC 2004.

I hold my breathe and close my eyes Hold back the tears from the skies I love you more than you'll ever know I stay awake in my bed at night Stare at the walls and the windows sigh I can't get you off of my mind And when you look at me And when you're kissing me Oh you make me feel Love, hate and everything My blanket's torn My feelings are bare You can spell it out in the cold air How is it that you cannot see what it is you mean to me? The morning's raw, can't climb out of bed Don't wanna think about what I just said I put my heart there on the table And the moon shone You saw me clear In the night sky as I stood bare You realized I am everything you ever wanted everything you've ever dreamed of everything you'll ever ask for is what you see in me Copyright HER Records, SOCAN, SAC 2004.

I miss your face I miss the shadow of my former self I miss the way you taste I miss that self-deluded little child I was I long to feel your touch I long to feel that rush again I long to love that much But I have no sense of it all I had but one escape To save myself from you and all this I had one choice to make Even though it tore me in two Those three words I wish I had said Those three words I never meant to feel Those three words I tried so hard to deny (are left unspoken) I cry so hard I wish it didn't have to be like this I fall with my head in my hands, my tears are streaming but I had to say goodbye I know it's better this way even though it hurts so much inside I know I'll never be the one that you needed And so wounded is my pride Copyright HER Records, SOCAN, SAC 2004.

Untitled 04:03
I cannot think I cannot speak I try so hard to breathe My mind is thinking crazy thoughts It feels like you're a disease You affect me to the core I wish you'd see me for more I cannot do this, it's killing me I cannot sing It comes out all wrong My voice is so off-key I cannot play My guitar strums along It is all so wrong to me I cannot read every word reminds me of you I cannot hear music every song says something about you too What did I do? Was it something I didn't do? Are you listening? Can you hear me? I'm dying, dying, dying Copyright HER Records, SOCAN, SAC 2004.
