Follow

(Written by Brandi Carlile/Tim Hanseroth)


Follow your heart and see where it might take you

Don't let the world outside there break you

They know not who you are inside

They have never felt your hell

Don't ever let them crack...


Hold out I know you feel it getting cold out

Without the blanket for your soul now

Before you know it you'll be frozen

You have to see this through

There's no one here but you


CHORUS

I feel the rain coming down

It reminds me of who I used to be

But now that's nothing more

Then a memory


Don't go, to sleep and cry because tomorrow

If you let it it will swallow

You up and none of this will matter

Will matter anymore


CHORUS

I feel the rain coming down

It reminds me of who I used to be

But now that's nothing more

Than a memory


CHORUS

I feel the rain coming down

It reminds me of who I used to be

But now that's nothing more

Than a memory


Follow your heart and see where it might take you

Don't let the world outside there break you

They know not who you are inside

They have never felt your hell

Don't ever let them crack...

Your shell...

What Can I Say

(Written by Tim Hanseroth)


Look to the clock on the wall,

Hands hardly moving at all.

Can't stand the state that I'm in

Sometimes it feels like the walls closing in


chorus:

O lord what can I say

I am so sad since you went away

time time ticking on me

Alone is the last place I wanted to be

Lord what can I say


Try to bury my troubles away

drowns my sorrows the same way

seem that no matter how hard I try

It feel like something’s just missing inside


Chorus


Oh lord what can I say


How rules can I break

how many lies can I make

how many roads can I turn

to find me a place where the bridge doesn't burn


Chorus x2



















Closer To You

(Written by: Brandi Carlile/Tim Hanseroth)


It's hard to let the miles pass me by

Yellow lines that blend together in my eyes

And when the seasons change again then I will too

I just want to be closer to you


I'm staring out at endless rows of green

There are miles of hay like I have never seen

Just when you think you've had enough and

your dreams come true

I just want to be closer to you


My mind wanders through all that I've been hiding from

I tried not to let you down

Now I wonder if I've been doin' something wrong

Help me get my feet back on the ground


Tomorrow I'll be lying under you

With a heart of gold and arms to fall into

I know that there might come a day

where my life is through

But I just want to be closer to you


My mind wanders through all that I've been hiding from

I tried not to let you down

Now I wonder if I've been doin' something wrong

Help me get my feet back on the ground


Someday we might learn to tell the truth

We might even find the fountains of our youth

We all needed something real we all need proof

I just want to be closer to you

I only want to be closer to you






Throw It All Away

(Written by Brandi Carlile/Tim Hanseroth)


When you're near me I have no fear

When I'm untrue you see right through me

You know me as deep as the sea goes

Calm my head whenever the storm blows


When the stars, and the moon

And the sky, fall through


I'd throw them all away when I'm hollow

Deep as the sea goes, all I know is

I would throw it all away...away


In my restless hour I'm holding

The words you say that lay my soul to sleep

I dream of buildings that burn

The sky turns black I toss and turn


When the stars, and the moon

And the sky, fall through


I'd throw them all away when I'm hollow

Deep as the sea goes, all I know is

I would throw it all away...away


This love branches out like an oak tree

Reach for the sky and roots to the sea

So when you're shaken down and broken

Find some peace of mind in knowing


I'd throw them all away when I'm hollow

Deep as the sea goes, all I know is

I would throw it all away...away



Happy

(Written by Brandi Carlile)


I don't hang around that place no more

I'm tired of wearing circles in the floor

And I don't carry myself very well

I've gotten so much braver

Can you tell


I'm happy

Can't you see

I'm alright

But I miss you Amber Lee


And I line my secrets up all one by one

I put 'em all away when I was done

And I would really love to hear your voice sometime

To close a little distance in my mind


I'm happy

Can't you see

I'm alright

But I miss you Amber Lee

Amber Lee


Where have you been all these years

And how could you just disappear

And when did you stop

Missing me


I'm happy

Can't you see

I'm alright

But I miss you Amber Lee


I'm alright

But I miss you Amber Lee

Someday Never Comes

(Written by Brandi Carlile/Tim Hanseroth)


Dear Love I miss you much

I miss your smile and I miss your touch

But I found a place where I can erase my past

Maybe someday when you're old and gray

And your hair falls out and your tattoos fade

You might see me standing

Hat in hand


I have to go away

I've got no reason to stay here

You said someday you'll change

But even a fool will tell you

Someday never comes


You built your rooms

You built your walls

You kept me outside of it all

I got tired of you

What's a girl to do

Maybe someday if we stay this way

And you see my face in a different place

You'll remember when

You're going to thank me then


I have to go away

I've got no reason to stay here

You said someday you'll change

But even a fool will tell you

Someday never comes





Fall Apart Again

(Written by Phil Hanseroth/Tim Hanseroth)


Long is the day, take it away

Hold it up and you don't let it fall

Cause devils play, was yesterday

And I don't care about that at all


I just smile, once in a while

Because I don't want the lines on my face

I sit right here, holding the years

And I count all the stars in space


You fall apart again and you can find a friend

Don't turn to someone else because they won't understand...


Self respect, goes unexpressed

I don't dream because I cannot sleep

And I think the world of myself

But the world doesn't think much of me

As long as the day is full of time, there will always be room

for your hand in mine


You fall apart again and you can't find a friend

Don't turn to someone else because they won't understand

I don't want to hear

You say that you miss yesterday

If you don't like what you see

That means nothing to me


No one's home I'm alone with my music and my TV

And I still say that yesterday is best when left to sleep


You fall apart again and you can't find a friend

Don't turn to someone else because they won't understand

I don't want to hear

You say that you miss yesterday

If you don't like what you see

That means nothing to me


In My Own Eyes

(Written by Brandi Carlile)


Hold me down lift me up

There's someone on the bedside waiting there for me

I hear my name, turn around

There's gotta be a downside, something I don't see

Around me


Hide me

Dying in the light of the room

Blind side please

I don't really want to be seen

In my own eyes


Something's wrong

Awake all night

'Cause I can feel the dark side

Closing in on me


Do you see me

As I see myself?

I promise there's a downside

Something you can't see


Hide me

Dying in the light of the room

Blind side please

I don't really want to be seen

In my own eyes


Lost in translation

Free to fall

One situation

And lose it all


Hide me

Dying in the light of the room

Blind side please

I don't really want to be seen


Hide me

Dying in the light of the room

Blind side please

I don't really want to be seen

I don't really want to be seen

In my own eyes

Gone

(Written by T Hanseroth/P Hanseroth/B Carlile)


Life is too short to waste all your time

Running too quickly to the finish line


Time is a track it's ready and set

And the longer you live the closer you get to being


Gone, gone like the evening

Sun, sun when it sets

Gone, gone like the darkness

At dawn, and then they forget


There's no guarantees or promise of wealth

And you're only allowed so much time on the shelf


Time isn't money it's only a lie

Because everything lost can be found but your time

When you're


Gone, gone like the evening

Sun, sun when it sets

Gone, gone like the darkness

At dawn, and then they forget


But live in doubt live in fear

And you might live forever

Or live it up and watch your back

And you might live for better


Gone, gone like the evening

Sun, sun when it sets

Gone, gone like the darkness

At dawn, and then they forget










Tragedy

(Written by Brandi Carlile)


Sorry I'm only

Human you know me

Grown up oh no guess again


My days always

Dry up and blow away

Sometimes I could do that too

But make no mistake that


When you need a friend

You could count on anyone

But you know I'll defend

The tragedy that we knew as

The end


Progress, changing

Growing then giving up

Somehow we're never quite prepared

But I understand it


When you need a friend

You could count on anyone

But you know I'll defend

The tragedy that we knew as

The end


So taking you with me would be like

Taking all your money to the grave

It does no good to anyone especially

The one you're trying to save

But it's so hard not to save


When you need a friend

You could count on anyone

But you know I'll defend

The tragedy that we knew as

The end

Sixty Years On

Lyrics by Bernie Taupin


Who'll walk me down to church when I'm sixty years of age

When the ragged dog they gave me has been ten years in the grave

And senorita play guitar, play it just for you

My rosary has broken and my beads have all slipped through


You've hung up your great coat and you've laid down your gun

You know the war you fought in wasn't too much fun

And the future you're giving me holds nothing for a gun

I've no wish to be living sixty years on


Yes I'll sit with you and talk let your eyes relive again

I know my vintage prayers would be very much the same

And Magdelena plays the organ, plays it just for you

Your choral lamp that burns so low when you are passing through


And the future you're giving me holds nothing for a gun

I've no wish to be living sixty years on
