Track Name: Ashes
Don't want to know, don't want to talk about it
I pull it close and bury deep
Say I'm just fine but I'm spinning in circles and sinking

Cause it's that one secret that won't pass my lips
It's that heavy burden I can no longer lift
It's that memory I pretend don't exist

I sing lullabies til I'm lulled to sleep
Keep praying for shelter, praying for peace
Cause you set me on fire
Ashes to ashes, that's all that's left of me

It wasn't love, it was a power struggle
You used your hands like a greedy thief
You spread my legs, forced yourself in and
Took what you could of me

I sing lullabies til I'm lulled to sleep
Keep praying for shelter, praying for peace
Cause you set me on fire
Ashes to ashes, that's all that's left of me

I once had a dream but it died in arson
Once had a heart but it burned up, burned out
This is not the end it's a new start, new start
New start, new start
To rise from the ashes
New dream, new heart
New dream, new heart

I sing lullabies til I'm lulled to sleep
Keep praying for shelter, praying for peace
Cause you set me on fire
Ashes to ashes, that's all that's left of me

It wasn't love, it was a power struggle
Track Name: Long Way Back to the Light
I prayed for Providence for some words to make me wiser
God said, "Don't ask for miracles when you fall for thieves and liars"
So I'll sing hallelujah, glory be to get me through the night
Swear I'm your perfect little angel that stumbled into a knife fight

Oh, won't you hold me tight?
Oh, I don't know wrong from right?
Oh, it's a long way back to the light
Oh, it's a long way back to the light

Smoking gun, Russian roulette
You pull me close, whiskey on your breath
I'll be your killing floor, your hit and run
Cause I'm a brokenhearted lover out for blood

Oh, won't you hold me tight?
Oh, I don't know wrong from right?
Oh, it's a long way back to the light
Oh, it's a long way back to the light

Oh, won't you hold me tight?
Oh, I don't know wrong from right?
Oh, it's a long way back to the light
Oh, it's a long way back to the light
Track Name: Bad Blood
I don't need a silver screen ending I just want to trust again
But I can't write a love song without his hands around my neck
So I tiptoe lightly, avoid your gaze
Build a wall to keep me safe and
Put my faith in what they say
One day I'll love again

I've got love notes written in suicide letters
I don't have the courage to mail
So I'll keep running like an outlaw from the thoughts inside my head
You're the black crow sitting on the telephone wire
Promising violent desire
You're my heroin, my razor blade
And I can't escape

Oh, this bad blood haunts me
Traps me in a ghost town
Two years since you've gone, but I feel you
Yeah, you're still around
Used to visit me in nightmares but I no longer sleep
I'm waiting for time to turn you into a memory

You've got me wrapped around your middle finger
God damn, cut me loose
You've got me wrapped around your middle finger
God damn, god damn cut me loose
Track Name: Intentions
Lay it down in the cold dark earth
Lay it down to sleep
Seal my secrets in an empty bottle
Drifting out to sea

Let my voice mingle with chirping birds
Soar above the tree
Help me see that who that who I am is who I'm meant to be

Let flowers grow out of the dirt
Way it's meant to be
Time passes, everything heals
The way it's meant to be

Lay it down in the cold dark earth
Lay me down to sleep
Seal my secrets in an empty bottle
Drifting out to sea
