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)

Just To Know 03:29
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

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

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

Indigo 03:18
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

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

Let It Fade 03:28
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

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

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

Wash Away 03:51
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

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

Satisfied 04:06
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
