SONGS FROM A LOG CABIN

COME BACK

Today you said you needed space

Said you needed time

Said you had a lot of things on your mind


When did it all go wrong?

You strung my love along

You told me it would take a lot of time to fix this

But, I can’t wait forever

I’ll pack up and go, if that’s what you want

You say you need your freedom

And who I am to stand in your way…

So, I won’t be waiting here when you come back

Today, I just need my space

I just need my time

I’ve just got a lot of things on my mind

How’s your coffee all alone

Your dark and empty home…

Now do you want to fix this

Cause, I won’t wait forever

I’ll pack up and go, if that’s what you want

You say you need your freedom

And who I am to stand in your way…

So, I won’t be waiting here when you come back


I’ll move on and find someone who treats me well

So, goodbye, I never thought there’d be a world

Where I wasn’t in love with you…



But, I can’t wait forever

I’ll pack up and go, if that’s what you want

You say you need your freedom

And who I am to stand in your way…



But, I don’t wait forever

I packed all my things and walked out the door

Because I-I need my freedom and who are you

To stand in my way…

So, I won’t be waiting here when you come back


No, I won’t be waiting here when you come back…

HOLLOW

We tried to outrun the inevitable

I watched as it went and swallowed us whole

Sometimes love just comes to an end

It’s too far gone for us to mend


We tried, oh, we tried to make this work

And we hide… we hide from all this hurt


The end has come for you and me

And I am left so empty

We are not who we were before

Now all we are is hollow


The mistrust crawled out from under the bed

It ate me up, now I’m left for dead

There’s still so much you have to explain

I never thought we’d go out this way


We lied, oh, we lied to make this work

And we hide… we hide from all this hurt


The end has come for you and me

And I am left so empty

We are not who we were before

Now all we are is hollow


Where did you go? Where did we go?

You’re not my home anymore…

All alone, in the cold…

Did I ever have a home?


The end has come for you and me

And I am left so empty

We are not who we were before

Now all we are is hollow


Now, all we are is hollow

FIELD OF FLOWERS

I’m afraid if I don’t tell you now

I’ll never be able to

I wanna give you all you’ve ever thought of and more

I wanna give you more

I want to give you a whole field of flowers for you to lay and dream in 

And I want to give you all of the music and all the words I have to give


And I’m scared that I’ll never be able to love you like you deserve

My soul tries to stay quiet but my heart aches to be heard

I wanna live in the sunshine that surrounds you

And dance in the moonlight where you walk

And honestly, truly, I just wanna steal your heart

I want to wake up and feel like I’m still dreaming cause you… you are my dream

Cause once I knew you, I knew I wanted nothing else and nothing more.


And I’m scared that I’ll never be able to show you how much you mean to me

I know that we’ve only got one life but I wanna spend mine with you

I wanna live in the space behind your eyes

And feel the warmth of your lips

And honestly, truly, I love who you are

And I’m scared that I’ll never be able to say all the things that I feel

But I believe that we could be together and happy for all eternity

Love is understanding, and love is kind and I ask you please be mine

So, honesty, truly, I give you my heart.

LIGHTS GO OUT

Lights go up and the lipsticks on

Four inch heels and an overdone song

Waiting in the wings and the band is ready

Heart is pounding, tryin’ to keep it steady


But when the lights all go out

And the people all go home

I am left with the silence

And I feel so alone


Show is over and they all have gone

I need somethin’ to help me go on

So much pressure I’m about to break

Pulled down by a mountain of weight

But when the lights all go out

And the people all go home

I am left with the silence

And I feel so alone

And for a while when I play

All my problems go away


But when the lights all go out…

There’s no one here but me


Through the words, through the rhyme, through the rhythm

And the feeling

You can easily see, it’s the only way I am dealing

Through the words, through the rhyme, through the rhythm

And the feelings

You can easily see, it’s the only I’ve been healing


But when the lights all go out

And the people all go home

I am left with the silence

And I feel so alone

And for a while on that stage

All my problems go away

But when the lights all go out…

There’s no one here but me


Tag: But when the lights all go out…

This is all I need

TAKE ME THERE

Say goodbye to Mom and Dad

Bags are packed it’s time to go 

Always dreamed this day would come

Now it’s here so why am I so scared?


Pre-Chorus: I’ve always wanted more

Now it’s time to go


Chorus: I can hear the city sing my name


The lights, they’re calling out for me

It won’t be easy to walk out that door 

But take me there

Take me there

Take me there

Take me there…


Verse 2: The building they will shake

From all the laughter and the tears

This loneliness is hard to take

But never mind all of the heartbreak


Pre-Chorus 2: I’ve always wanted more

Now watch me grow


Chorus 2: I can hear the city sing my name

The lights, they’re calling out for me

It won’t be easy, I know that for sure

But take me there

Take me there

Take me there

Take me there

Take me there…


Bridge: I’ve always wanted more…

Now here I go…

Watch me soar…


Chorus 3: I can hear the city sing my name

The lights, they’re calling out for me

It won’t be easy, I know that for sure

But take me there

Take me there


Take me there

Take me there

Take me there…
