Track Name: Treading Water (Acoustic)
Don’t remember the day when my heart suddenly had nothing to say
Like a pink seashell where the sounds of emotion dissipate
This little leaky valve is hemorrhaging hope into the streets
And I’m just not comfortable with the world knowing all my dreams

You can’t be the only thing keeping me afloat
If I’ve been treading water this long, just leave me alone

Too many tails I’ve chased, spin myself ‘round and around
Keeping comfortable, a quick transition back into my old self
Too many lies I’ve told to keep the world at bay
Too many souls I’ve sold to touch the stars in a time of need

You can’t be the only thing keeping me afloat
If I’ve been treading water this long, just leave me alone
You can’t be the only thing keeping me awake
If I’ve been hearing voices this long, I must have lost my way

It’d be better to swim than to drop sail and sink
But I have no destination or place to leave
Don’t know where I’ll go, don’t know where I’ll drop my feet
But I would rather be drowning and know you’re free

You can’t be the only thing keeping me afloat
If I’ve been treading water this long, I gotta make it on my own
You can’t be the only thing keeping me awake
If I’ve been hearing voices this long, I gotta find my own way, away
Track Name: Lost! (Acoustic)
Just because I'm losing
Doesn't mean I'm lost
Doesn't mean I'll stop
Doesn't mean I will cross

Just because I'm hurting
Doesn't mean I'm hurt
Doesn't mean I didn't get
What I deserved
No better and no worse

I just got lost
Every river that I tried to cross
Every door I ever tried was locked
Ohhh and I'm...
Just waiting 'til the shine wears off

You might be a big fish
In a little pond
Doesn't mean you've won
'Cause along may come
A bigger one

And you'll be lost
Every river that you tried to cross
Every gun you ever held went off
Ohhh and I'm...
Just waiting until the firing stopped
Ohhh and I'm...
Just waiting 'til the shine wears off

Ohhh and I...
Just waiting 'til the shine wears off
Ohhh and I..
Just waiting 'til the shine wears off
Ohhh and I..
Just waiting 'til the shine wears off
Track Name: All the Love (Acoustic)
Quit looking for her name in the paper
‘Cause I know she left that job
Moved down south in a house with her parents
I know she had to start over

And I killed this thing
Before we gave it wings
And I feel so bad
‘Cause I miss her now

And I regret, oh, all the love we never had
You could be my best friend
But I let you in and I let you down

Quit checking my mail for a letter
‘Cause I know I blew her off
And I don’t deserve, I don’t deserve any better
But I still hoped she’d let me off the hook

And I killed this thing
Before we heard it sing
And I feel so bad
‘Cause I miss her now

And I regret, oh, all the love we never had
You could be my best friend
But I let you in and I let you down

This love was over my head
This love was over my head
This love was over my head

Quit looking for her name in the paper
‘Cause I know she left that job
Track Name: You Had Time (Acoustic)
how can i go home
with nothing to say
i know you're going to look at me that way
and say what did you do out there
and what did you decide
you said you needed time
and you had time

you are a china shop
and i am a bull
you are really good food
and i am full
i guess everything is timing
i guess everything's been said
so i am coming home with an empty head

you'll say did they love you or what
i'll say they love what i do
the only one who really loves me is you
and you'll say girl did you kick some butt
and i'll say i don't really remember
but my fingers are sore
and my voice is too

you'll say it's really good to see you
you'll say i missed you horribly
you'll say let me carry that
give that to me
and you will take the heavy stuff
and you will drive the car
and i'll look out the window and make jokes
about the way things are

how can i go home
with nothing to say
i know you're going to look at me that way
and say what did you do out there
and what did you decide
you said you needed time
and you had time
Track Name: Underdog (Acoustic)
I hope I’m among friends here
And if I’m bleeding down my back
You would step up and pull the knife out
Or say, “Can I help you with that?”

I walked among art savages
With my skin turned inside out
And my mind up on my sleeve
‘Til I was burned down

And I am just a lonely girl
With nothing to prove
And if you’re not the underdog
They’re not booing or rooting for you

They saw through my tinted eyes
And pervaded this virgin stare
When I stood too long in fascination
With musical spheres

A Renaissance man once said
When you’re bound to a star, you can’t turn back
And I was born into a constellation
And I’m not giving in

And I am just a lonely girl
With nothing to prove
And if you’re not the underdog
They’re not booing or rooting for you

I hope I’m among friends here
And if I’m bleeding down my back
You would step up and pull the knife out
