Track Name: Stories Telling Themselves
Stories Telling Themselves
Lyrics © Stacy Koviak-Davison

Such a big disgrace
Down another day
Around the backyard swing
Again….they follow and
A big game
Gave it all away
Gave it all away, baby

I bear the cross
Why do you always break down by the door?
Our stories are telling themselves
Without a sound
I’ll take yours down
(too)

Always this wanting
Always waiting
Impatient loathes me
I fight with my words
But since I never speak them
You got no idea how I keep them
In here

I bear the cross
Why do you always break down by the door?
Our stories are telling themselves
Without a sound
I’ll take yours down
(too)

Holding onto nothing
Tell me how much can you take?
And how much longer til you break?
Loaded gun, why are you pointing yourself at me?
Loaded gun, why?

And this restless rain
It’s like a friend to me
And it helps me sleep
When it’s falling down
Beating hard
On my window pane
On my selfish pain
Rinse it all away…way

‘Cause I bear the cross
and why do you always break down by the door?
Our stories are telling themselves
Without a sound
I take yours down
Yes I bear the cross
And why do you always break down by the door?
Our stories are telling
They’re writing themselves
Without a sound
I’ll take yours down
I’ll take, I’ll take yours down
I’ll take, I’ll take yours down
(too)
Track Name: Just To Know
Just to Know
Lyrics © Stacy Koviak-Davison

Indecisive
Care to bring me down?
While you try
I’m tired of hanging on
Tomorrow’s borrowed time

And so divine, my baby
The sacrifices I make
It’s only a breath away you know but

I wanted to know if you wanted me
Just to know
Prophecies
In hopes to weight me down
While you fly
Fly higher
Only wait to fall
love is crumbling down

And all your lies are wasted
On selfless hearts that you break
It’s only a breath away you know but
I wanted to know if you wanted me
Just to know if you needed me
Just to know

And sad, sad lights are fading
The sacrifices I made
It’s only a breath away you know but
I wanted to know if you wanted me
Just to know if you needed me
Just to know
Track Name: Jill's Lament
Jill’s Lament
Lyrics © Stacy Koviak-Davison

Any, every day
My heart is closed again
It doesn’t talk to you
What did you expect me to do?

Out on the edge
Tumbled down
I broke entirely
You only lost your crown

It wasn’t anything
Don’t need you there to remind me and
It’s getting hard to breathe
Under here

Oh, Oh
It tastes
Like rain on my tongue
Rain in the sun
And my tired heart is broken

The ground moved under me
To hard and too abruptly
And under terms of haste
You cannot gauge
You cannot gauge

You own me
My soul it bleeds
And my head it’s a crying,
It’s a crying shame
And you know
You know
Track Name: Little Silence
Little Silence
Lyrics © Stacy Koviak-Davison

I must be at the point
Where the black takes over
I know I’m still alive
But I don’t feel like I’m breathing
I can’t

Just outside alright
You presume to know me well
Out of context, you might
And subtlety has just begun
Mistaken you
To be someone

Just a little silence was all I needed
From all these voices in my head
A little silence was all I needed
I see you walking down
Eyes glued to the ground
Yeah, I know
It’s me

Girl so insane
With what you had
Before the want in you
All the same
All is fine

Just a little silence was all I needed
From all these voices in my head
My head

I noticed you in my heart
I noticed you in my mind
I noticed a little hope
Was all that I had left to find

Just a little silence
Just a little silence
Just a little silence
Now I know
Now I know
Now I know
Track Name: Indigo
Indigo
Lyrics © Stacy Koviak-Davison

The sky’s deep purple
And the clouds are many
And the birds are flying
Nowhere in my sight
It’s like a photograph
Or a painted picture
And I’m still hearing
What you said last night

Oh and I’m so tired but I can’t sleep
Without you here with me
And it all comes down to the meaning of
What we found

I feel so lost inside this second coming
All the colors bleed together into one
And talk is cheap
But babe, we don’t have much to spend
Always reaching, searching
But it’s never changing

Oh and I’m so tired but I can’t sleep
Without you here with me
And it all comes down to the meaning of
What we found

Or lost in each other
So far gone for one another
That we lost in each other
And my thoughts just rearrange

The sky’s deep purple
And the clouds are many
And the birds still fly
But they’re nowhere in sight
You’re my photograph
my painted picture
And I’m still hearing
What you said last night

Oh and I’m so tired
And I just need you here with me
‘Cause baby what it all comes down to
is the meaning of what we found
Track Name: Fast As I Could Carry
Fast as I could Carry
Lyrics © Stacy Koviak-Davison

Something happened on the way down
As fast and as far as I could carry
The weight of my words
They pull me back to you

And all that I am wanting
Is a place to belong
Call me crazy if it makes you feel better
Call me anything
I don’t care anymore, no

Something left him on his way home
He’s lost and he’s broken down
I held him
The woman in my heart
Is breaking fast in two

Cause all that I am wanting
Is a place to belong
Call me crazy if it makes you feel better
Call me anything
I don’t care anymore, no

Well, someone stole him on his way back
I’m left here to stand
And now I’m healing
By pouring all my heart
into the next one, yeah

Cause all that I am wanting
Is a place to belong
Call me crazy if it makes you feel better
Call me anything
I don’t care anymore, no

Anything,
Anything
Anything
Well I don’t care
I don’t care
Anything
Anything
Any
Thing
I don’t
Care
Track Name: Let It Fade
Let it Fade
Lyrics © Stacy Koviak-Davison

I haven’t left my house in days
Just reaching, searching for a trace
These images left in my mind
Replaying everything that
Left me hollow

I haven’t talked to anyone
No, there’s nothing they could say
I can’t seem to get you off my mind
It’s really getting to me

Whoa
Let it go
Let it fade
And if you have to baby
I think you need to baby
Just peel that shit away

You’re probably running around town
Saying I’m the one to blame
Couldn’t be further from the truth
Backsliding down a road
That I won’t follow

Erase this
Cast aside my anger
And brush past my mistakes
Oh Taken
Only for granted
Now all that I can say is

Let it go
Let it fade
And if you have to baby
I think you need to baby
Just peel that shit away

Erase this
Cast aside my anger
And brush past my mistakes
Oh Taken
Only for granted
Now all that I can say is

Let it go
Let it fade
And if you have to baby
I think you need to baby
Oh let it burn
Until it’s dead
And if you have to baby
I think you need to baby
Track Name: Give Me The Ending
Give Me The Ending
Lyrics © Stacy Koviak-Davison

Oh, oh
I know you better than you care to admit
Tripping over days you should have never lived
Why brave the sting?
I’m never coming back again
Give the end
Give me the ending
A thousand stars
to gaze, to gaze, to gaze

Time tucked down in my pocket
I keep it close in case I can’t let him near
Told me twice saying “Hey, why bother?”
But it’s no excuse for living in fear

Oh, oh
I wonder now was it all in vain
Your twisted words twist my thoughts
And leave me curious

Why cradle pain?
Go on girl and save yourself
Give me the end,
Give me the ending
Don’t fall for that
The blame, the blame, the blame

Time tucked down in my pocket
I keep it close in case I can’t let him near
Told me twice saying “Hey, why bother?”
But it’s no excuse for living in fear

Why cradle pain?
just go on girl and save yourself
And give me the end,
Give me the ending
A thousand stars
to gaze, to gaze, to gaze
To Gaze

Time tucked down in my pocket
I keep it close in case I can’t let you near
You’re telling me all of the time “Don’t even bother”
And it’s no excuse
It’s no excuse
It’s no excuse
Track Name: Writing on The Wall
Writing on the Wall
Lyrics © Stacy Koviak-Davison

It’s the saddest day when you know it’s really over
And I know it’s really over
I saw the writing on the wall
I did

And it’s the hardest thing to be outside looking in
The window’s dark, the light is dim now
No it doesn’t feel the same

I could not find the words
Couldn’t find a way to
Keep this thing together anymore
I find it strange
After all that we have been through
I put all of my faith in you
But you couldn’t do the same

Try to convince my heart
But I know that it’s pretending
Yeah this fear, it’s never-ending
I took a chance
And then the fall

And silence cuts the dark
And you tell yourself you’re coping
But inside I know you’re broken

You could not find the words
Couldn’t find a way to
Keep this thing together anymore
I find it strange
After all that we have been through
I put all of my trust in you
But you couldn’t do the same

We could not find the words
Couldn’t find a way to
Keep this thing together anymore
I find it strange
I gave my heart to you
And after all that we have been through
After all that we have been through
After all that we have been through
You just couldn’t do the same…

It’s the saddest day when you know it’s really over
And I know it’s really over
Track Name: Wash Away
Wash Away
Lyrics © Stacy Koviak-Davison

Taking my time
I broke down
Wash him away from me
Mind disengaged
Lost and found
There’s something in the way

And I fight back
Memories like razorblades
And whispers on walls left in the dark
Remember everything

I’m tired and
Now I’m finding
You’re wasting time
And you’re wasting mine

All things aside
You shut down
So please babe, let me be
'Cause your disillusion is half my pain
It’s taking a toll on me
And all our mistakes further to the ending
So why refrain back to the beginning?
No, never again
I’m trying to tell you
Let it wash away…

I’m tired and
Now I’m finding
You’re wasting time
And you’re wasting mine

But I know there is a light underneath

Yeah, you’re wasting time
Stop wasting mine
Cause I finally see the light underneath
I finally read the lines that you tried to keep
Yes, I finally hear the lies that you believe
It’s all just make believe
Track Name: Follow The Rain
Follow The Rain
Lyrics © Stacy Koviak-Davison

Spending your days
Your tongue in a cage
Such rage, undefined
The sun in my face
A chemical daze
Rolling over me

And I don’t foresee
Any prophecies
l just let them fade
And I’ll wait until the storm comes
To blow all away

And right now
I follow the rain
Said right now
I follow the rain

It used to be
Simple to me
Like writing on the sand
He wants to be fed
A turn of the head
Brings to light the truer things
And I’ll hold you tight
I’m feeling uninspired

So now
I follow the rain
For right now
I follow the rain

I’ve said this before
So much to embrace
Now I follow
And now that it’s yours
What will you take?
A heart so hollow
It seems to me you’re turning and

I can’t erase
That look upon your face
I’ll roll away
By following the rain
You know, oh, I’m not sure
‘Cause right now I follow
Right now I follow
Right now I follow
Right now I
Track Name: Satisfied
Satisfied
Lyrics © Stacy Koviak-Davison

Secrets
Deep breath
And out your careless hands
Another innocent
Lying on the canvas red
And all the world will spin
Right and ready
You say you broke him
And I
Extend my hand
And watch you condescend
And all your lies in spite
Into a jealous end
And your insanity
I never told you to tear me open

And I fell down, down
A broken
Token
I hope that you’re satisfied
That my head is pulling me under
Undone
As you wanted

Angel
In hell
Dangling from your pedestal
And all your dirt is spilled
And every breath is stale
And all your vanity lines up to follow
Now who’s broken?

How quickly, swiftly
I watch them come to the
And how you tuck them tight
Into your tourniquet
Yes, your insanity
I never told you to tear me open

And I fell down, down
A broken
Token
I hope that you’re satisfied
That my head is pulling me under
Undone

Run away
Running like a child
And I stay
Singing lullabies
Though this pain holds me
No matter what you find
And I’ll stay
Lord help me
I’m falling

As you wanted
As you wanted
As you wanted
