my heart swells wide // my eyes are open
“broken” was the inevitable catalyst
to becoming godless- reborn

knowing you
I know myself again

Track Name: New Home
NEW HOME

The more I think about it the more I can breathe
I more I think about it, the more I breathe
I am living - everything
reliving everything

The more I feel, you know it overcomes me
When will someone peel away my body
Bathe in my blood
Like the real thing does

It was my one human goal
Found beauty in the soul
Of a man
No matter how it unfolds
I will love you now - however I can

I knew the same then
Like I know how
Tried to resist..
Still came to you, how?
Loved through what I could allow
Our bedposts down to toothpicks now

Said I would love this city
Never leave this city
‘less I’ve someplace to go
Gettin’ paid ain’t the place no
Just that grin on your face

Said I would love this city
Never leave this city
‘less I’ve someplace to go
I’d give you everything
forgiven everything

If we keep
digging from the ground
there’ll be nothing to be found
when we are laid


I know joy is all abound
No matter who is around
So I’m not afraid
Track Name: Stranger
STRANGER

Talked all night with a stranger
With someone that I barely even know

We undressed our opinions
Instead of taking off our clothes

Oh, oh oh
Don’t it all seem strange?
Oh, oh oh
You’re no stranger at all

Oh, oh oh
There’s nothing I could change
Something ‘bout you has got me going
Something ‘bout you has got me going

Spent all week in the heatwave
Finding out what it really all means
I could finally remember oh, the life
and the love
I had dreamed

Oh, oh oh
Don’t it all seem strange?
Oh, oh oh
You’re no stranger
At all
Oh, oh
There’s nothing I could change
Still, something ‘bout you has got me going
Something ‘bout you has got me going
Something ‘bout you has got me going
Track Name: Righteous Arms/Honest Hands
RIGHTEOUS ARMS/HONEST HANDS

Those righteous arms
Those honest hands
Would they hold me like the woman
I am?

If I go straight
Know what I’d do?
Oh, I’d run right into you

Tryna be patient
Do what I can
Can’t be that hard now
To understand
I wanna know you boy
I wanna know you
As a man.

The only face
I can’t ignore
Seen you happy, hopeless, anything
I want more

The only one
I can’t replace
I dare you to leave without a trace

Tryna be patient
Do what I can
It can’t be that hard now
to understand
I wanna know you boy
I wanna know you

I don’t have any other bones
I could throw ya
Nothing left in here to show ya
I just wanted to know you

As a man
As a man
Track Name: Held Back My Hair
HELD BACK MY HAIR

I thought myself a godless woman
Seems you’re bringing out the lord in me
Honey I’m not playing
You can find me prayin’
Are you ever gonna love me?

I’d been trying to free you from me
Seemed that you didn’t wanna be free
Where was I supposed to grip,
when all those words fell on our lips?
Is it heaven up above thee?

Who could make a wise choice lately?
It’s like that Dylan song, “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere”
I was joyful but so drunk
I’m falling up my stairs
You could’ve held back my hair
You could’ve held back my hair

Track Name: Meet You At The Bottom
MEET YOU AT THE BOTTOM

If I know it, do I know it well?
Like the winter’s silence
Or the summer’s yell?

Now I’m laughing out loud
at what my heart lived to tell
‘cause nothing else has ever felt

If I know it, do I know it right?
Like a flood of darkness chased away by light
I’ve been held before but not so sure, so tightly
I know we’re premature
But I can’t let it go lightly

I love you in the real
I love you in the dark
the way you make me feel
like my woes are forgotten
your deep, deep soul
your swollen heart
just let me know
and I’ll meet you at the bottom

Wasn’t hard to tell
Wasn’t hard to see
Before - you’d been broken
Though you hardly speak
Well, you’d never really spoken
What your life’s about
Regarding all your pain -
I don’t wanna wear you out
I just wanna know your name

I love you in the real
I love you in the dark
I wanna make you feel like your woes are forgotten
Your deep, deep soul
Your swollen heart
Just let me know and
I’ll meet you at the bottom
Track Name: The Warning
THE WARNING

It’s that restless time
Between spring and summer
And I couldn’t tell you
Though I wonder
What is in your mind
And what pulls you under
But you wouldn’t tell me
Do you hear that thunder…
Well, it’s been rainin’
and it’s only starting to pour
You know I need to dry off
I can’t take anymore

I heard the warning
I don’t know what it’s about
But I know, I know I just can’t be there
So by the morning
I had to get out
And by now you’re so far gone
I really don’t care

Could be on the street
Ignoring passers-by
it’s a silly place
to feel shy
but it’s stupid small
this neighborhood
in my memory
you don’t look so good

but there’s no pain with you
maybe I kicked the habit?
Or maybe my heart doesn’t want
just doesn’t want you to have it

I heard the warning
I don’t know what it’s about
But I know, I know I just can’t be there
So by the morning
I had to get out
and by now you’re so far gone
You know I really can’t care

I can’t care
Track Name: Southern Door
SOUTHERN DOOR

You needed my company
I said, “it won’t be long”
When I got to your doorway
and the look on your face
like we were already gone

I don’t know how I know you
But I knew you before
From my summer rooftop
To your southern door

I know this isn’t foolish
Fiction, myth or folklore
From the very moment
I knew I would feel you for -
All my life
All my life

I won’t look at you sideways
I care too much for that
Still I often wonder if you’ll ever
Take off your hat
When and if you do -
Find the man I met
Would you care to tell him
I have been here
tell him that

All your life
All your life
All your life.
Track Name: Your Truth
YOUR TRUTH

I lost all my fear in the battle
and left to find some truth in the valley
Found my anger - the most dangerous thing I know

I long to feel your warmth in the morning
We came on quick and without warning
There’s still something I need to find on my own

Oh, if my heartaches with no one around
My love still makes a sound
I can feel you moving
Honey, look at what I’ve found
I can fall in love
and not fall down

The road it said, “your heart isn’t hollow”
it bent and led where I had to follow
Now it’s clear there’s nothing I can’t learn

Your truth is just as endless and wide
If you reach it there on the other side
I’m coming home in every wind and every turn

Oh, if your heartaches with no one around
Know your love makes a sound
I can feel you moving
Honey, look at what I’ve found
You could fall in love
You could fall in love
You could fall in love
and not fall down.
