The Only Walls For Me

(as heard on the Ikea 2014 International Ad Campaign // iTunes)

Maybe it's just four walls and the spaces in between / but this is where we wake up and where we fall asleep / and I can't think of another place that I would rather be / so these are the only walls for me / I don't wanna get out of bed / won't you wake me gently please / or maybe just come lie down a little while with me / life ain't always easy dear but happiness is free / so won't you just stay awhile with me / maybe it's just four walls but that don't mean a thing / they could be paper thin or bourgeoise / 'cause what's inside will bona fide turn a pauper into a queen / so these are the only walls for me / what's inside are the things that I need to put my heart at ease / these are the only walls for me

Come Undone (iTunes)

We are the hot spark before the fire / we are the sweet talk before the deed is done / and if the wind blows while I'm walking this wire / well I swear I'm gonna come undone / you are a summer day and I'm mid December / it's been ages since my skin has felt the sun / so darling please help me remember / or I swear I'm gonna come undone / I am a house of cards, no mighty towner / the slightest breeze and down I'll come / so make me fall, you have the power / 'cause you know I wanna come undone

Shadow (iTunes)

This is where my heart goes / any way the wind blows / don't try and hold me too close / I'm a shadow / I'm a shadow / every time a heart breaks / I'm sickened by the sound it makes / and I don't want the hurt to show / I'm a shadow / I'm a shadow / all I have is bravery / so hold my heart and let it bleed / cause I don't want the world to know / I'm a shadow / I'm a shadow / this is where my heart goes

I Have You (I Do) (Soundcloud)

All that I am / all that I've had to suffer through / the rise and fall / on roads unknown or tried and true / oh I have you / I do / all that you are / all that you know or never knew / where we are / and everywhere we're going to / oh I have you / I do / you / i have you / i have you / I do / every hour and all the years we'll travel through / oh I have you / I do

Fall For You

(as heard on the "Nutella Forever" 2014 International Ad Campaign // iTunes)

I think the sun might be shining just a little more high / I think the stars might be hanging just a little more high / come on love a new day is calling / and it feels so right / do do do / you know what I wanna do / do do do / it's a beautiful day to fall for you / oh my the sunshine is calling out to me / let's go outside, we've got a great big world to see / come on love / you've just got to gimme gimme what I need do do do / you know what I wanna do / do do do / it's a beautiful day to fall for you

You Are Mine (with Spencer Combs) (iTunes)

There's no words to show you how / no song that's come from David's crown / I'll take my soul and pour it out at your feet / I'll wait patiently / for you / Oh I will / forever and always / put you before me / til the end of time / but until then / til my last breath rolls in / oh I am yours and you are mine / my heart beats for you alone / no house can hold the love that we own / every time you fall from grace / to your knees / I'll wait patiently / for you /  Oh I will / forever and always / put you before me / til the end of time / but until then / til my last breath rolls in / oh I am yours and you are mine / someday we'll see what forever means / my love

Perfect Day (iTunes)

The people are clamoring close, close to the ground / my head and my heart are way up / up in the clouds / my love is alive / my love is alive for you / this is the perfect day / this is the perfect day / i forget how to breath when your mouth whispers my name / tell me I'm yours / tell me you're mine / never the same / I'll light up the sky / light up the sky for you / this is the perfect day / I wanna make it last forever / this is the perfect day / from the top of the sky to the dirt under my feet / with all of my heart I know I'm where I should be / I'll follow the stars / follow the stars with you / this is the perfect day / I wanna make it last forever / this is the perfect day / the people are clamoring close, close to the ground / my head and my heart are way up / up in the clouds / this is the perfect day


Another December (Christmas EP) - iTunes

I'm Coming Home

City streets lit up like a candle / Holiday cheer set out on the mantle / Wind is blowing, the world is slowing down / … oh oh oh you know I’m coming home / When I get to you, why don’t we go / Walk down own the street, see the trees in the windows / Snow is falling, my train is comin’ to town / …oh oh oh you know I’m coming home / Untangle the lights and we’ll set up the Christmas tree / If you ask me nice, maybe I’ll go caroling / At the top of my list, all you’ll see is “home” / Stockings all lit up by the fire / Down the street, hear the sound of the choir / Singing Alleluia, He is born / …oh oh oh, I know I’m home

Another December

Can't put the tree up with out / I threw it out in the fall / now here's another December / and you're still gone / I stay away from the window / when neighbors offer a song / 'cause I don't want to remember / that you're still gone / now they're out there singing Hallelujah / and the words are ringing in my ears / how I wish I could be talking to ya / my dear / I'd throw a log on the fire / oh, but I can't find the light / it gets so cold here without you / 'cause you're still gone


Euphorics (EP) - iTunes

I Do (feat. Jonathan Lister)

Just hold tight to my hand / there's no need for any big plans / we'll just go til the road ends / I know that we'll see it through / yeah I believe that me and you / we're doing what we're meant to / tell me that you'll love me forever / you know I'll never leave you / tell me that we'll always be together / oh no one's gonna love you like I do / let's chase all our big dreams / through open fields and over seas / where you are is where I wanna be / forever isn't too long / when I'm right where I belong / oo baby this love is strong

Gimme Your Love

oh love / get in my head / set the world on fire / the world on fire / oh love / color me red / set the world on fire / the world on fire / gimme your love / gimme your love / gimme your love / gimme your love / c'mon follow me home / we're gonna burn this house / burn this house / c'mon let your guard down low / we're gonna burn this house / burn this house

Golden

oh my darlin / don't get me started / everything you do is golden / my oh my / you and i / are clinging to the hands we're holding / it didn't take long for me to figure out / when people talk of love we're what they're talkin' 'bout / 'cause you've got me and I've got you / and together we do what we do / oh my darlin / let's get started / everything we do is roses / my oh my / you light my fire / and everyone around us knows it / baby we've got something that you can't ignore / when people wish for love we're what they're wishing for / 'cause you've got me and I've got you / and together we do what we do

Hiding Place

If the sun should hide away / then I will find its hiding place / and if the mockingbirds won't sing / then I will sing you anything / if you lived across the sea / I'd ask the wind to carry me / and if the stars forget to shine / I'll climb a ladder up and remind them / there's never been a love more true / 'cause I was meant for lovin' you

Whispered Words

Hush now / hold your tongue / you don't wanna tread on anyone's grave / you don't wanna ashen anyone's face / with your whispered words / your heavy whispered words / hold strong now love / nothing happens to the pure of heart / a hundred voices couldn't wake us up / with their whispered words / their heavy whispered words / slow down heart / you keep a rhythm like a wartime drum / no kingdom is gonna come on their whispered words / their heavy whispered words / come now Lord / don't wanna lose what's just been found / fresh faced and in the ground with their whispered words / their heavy whispered words


February (EP) - iTunes

Rest Of My Life

Go find me a string / Tie a knot and make me a ring / And I'll treasure that thing / Like a diamond so bright / 'Cause all that I need / Is the love you're givin' to me / And your heart I will carry / Till the end of time / Cause you kiss me a awake when the sun's coming up / You hold me while I'm dreaming at night / You make me laugh when I'm picking a fight / And I'm gonna love you for the rest of my life / Let's gather some stones / Stack 'em up and build us a home / And we'll call it our own / For a hundred years / And when we both grow old / We'll have to many stories to be told / And your heart I will hold / Just as dear

Any Time Soon (feat. Jeremy Lister)

If I drew up the blinds / would you recognize the forest for the trees / we are something to see / the days that we've collected / are so unexpectedly filling up the room / but if you don't give up on me, I won't give up on you / any time soon / we, we're a perfect machine / burning from the inside out / but one day the winter will melt away / and the seeds that died yesterday / will start to bloom

You (feat. Evan McHugh)

Remember the sweater you gave me? / the one that you struggled to save / the moths ran away with the patches you made / still, it reminds me of you / you / you / you / and I miss you, dear / and I need you here with me / I will be fine / remember the boat that you made me? / the one from the Saturday times / the ship never sailed 'cause I cut out the funnies / the wreckage reminds me of you / you / you / you / and I miss you, dear / and I need you here with me / suddenly I'm not the one with your love / I'm not the one with your love / I'm not the one with your love / remember the love that you gave me? / the one that you struggled to save / and I miss you, dear / and I need you here with me / I will be fine

Masochist

I see you with your heart on your sleeve / and you're waiting for me to take the bait / you've had just enough drinks that you're willing to think / that this old world has written your fate / you're a masochist / stitched up and torn apart / you're a masochist / just asking for a broken heart / you think those words would come a little easier / if you had a better story to tell / but all that pain won't make it to the page if you / keep it all to yourself / you're a masochist / stitched up and torn apart / you're a masochist / just asking for a broken heart / I know who you are / I know who you are / you're a masochist / just asking for a broken heart / oh you can hide in your web of lies / and you know that nobody will see / but you know I tell the truth when I say "I see you you" because / nobody is more like you than me / you're a masochist / stitched up and torn apart / you're a masochist / just asking for a broken heart

Diamond in a Coal Mine

I follow you down / time after time / the light in your heart shines like a diamond in a coal mine / tell me your secrets / I'll tell you no lies / I'm bound to you like a full moon to the high tide / every whisper sounds like a symphony / forever and always / my future and my history / so, come with me to the deep / I'll give you my body / I'll give you my soul / but I cannot give you a heart you already stole / I can't imagine me without you / like a song without music / a love without truth


Odd Place To Be (EP) - iTunes

Just Right

Look underneath your window / I will wait for you, dear / Right underneath your window / I will wait for you here / Maybe it’s all just a show / And this is gunna end badly / Maybe I don’t really know who you are / But I, I don’t wanna know, I don’t wanna know / Right now, right now, no / I don’t wanna know, I don’t wanna know / Right now, right now’s just right / Just right, just right just right / Just right, just right… / Look underneath your window / I will wait for you, dear / Right underneath your window / I will wait for you here / Maybe this time tomorrow / You’re gunna ruin me badly / Maybe I’m placing my bets all wrong / But I, I don’t wanna know, I don’t wanna know / Right now, right now...

Odd Place To Be

Sweet dreams and shiny things decorate the space / Between awake and sleeping / Sometimes is hard to force your heart to believe / When it’s no longer dreaming / This is an odd, odd place to be / Standing on the brink of what is and what could be / Sometimes I swear it’s only inches away / Half in light, half in shadow / Some sleepless nights I pray for one more day / So I can just stare out the window / This is an odd, odd place to be / Standing on the brink of what is and what could be

Edie's Balcony

City below us / City of summer skies / City can’t touch us / With all of her shifting lights / Gentle glow, you know the heart of me / Blinding lights, hold on tight to the secrets you keep / Stories unfolding / Stand by the fireside / Carefully holding / Words that we don’t confide in anyone / City lights, sunrise is waiting in the trees / Endless night, you might have a hold on me

Wrecking Ball

So I guess today won't  be the very best day that I’ve ever had / It’s just a fact / I know it can’t all be / Honey and roses for me, and I don’t want that / It’s so white and black / And I’m just keeping on… / It’s the give and take / Of living day to day but I’ve mastered the art / Of being broken apart / Oh the mess I’ve made / Is like an anchors weight I’ve been dragging so far / Heavy on the heart / And I’m just keeping on… / Bracing for the next heartbreak to come / We’re all just wrecking balls / And it’s breaking me down down down… down / No more asking why / No more wasting time counting regrets / Forgive and forget / We just clear the way / Ignore the disarray. Lover, don’t fret. / You give what you get. / Yeah, I’m just keeping on, / Let Joshua play his song because / We’re all just wrecking balls / And it’s breaking me down down down… down

Always Be

I wake to find your hand in mine / We must have fell asleep last night, just right / The sunlights dancin’ through the blinds / The day is waiting on the line, just outside, oo / Will you always be my love? / Now cars are passing and birds are laughing as / trees are holding up the sky in the window / do they feel it, have they seen it grow / have they been watching us, do they know? / Will you always be my love?
