B i o g r a p h y
 (by Johnny Loftus)

Kate Earl grew up in Chugiak, AK, where she started writing songs that blended the phrasing of Cat Power and Björk with the folk-chanteuse influence of Joni Mitchell for an earthy, accessible sound. Earl moved to Los Angeles in 2004 and quickly made an impression, scoring airplay on KCRW and Indie 103.1 and catching the ear of Record Collection, who eventually signed her. She continued to log West Coast performances as she recorded her debut with producer Tony Berg, and the album was slated for a summer 2005 release.

Kate Earl's debut has an understated glow about it, a quiet allure that comes from a bright, almost naïvely honest young singer working with a crew of sure-handed musicians. Earl migrated to Los Angeles from Chugiak, AK. That's near Anchorage. But she sounds at home in front of a California band that includes (at various points) Mitchell Froom, Michael Penn, Wendy Melvoin, members of Incubus, Dave Scher (Beachwood Sparks), and sound artist/pedal steel manipulator Chas Smith. Earl's vocals are throaty, expressive, and pristinely clear. She's a less strident Joss Stone over the winking strings of "Silence," but delicate and half-asleep on "Free," where Scher's pedal steel and the pump organ of Patrick Warren add hundreds of style points. Earl's songwriting on Fate Is the Hunter has some gravity -- she's a girl just trying to make her way in the world, or a lover, or lost thoughts and memories where darkness whispers amidst the happiness. But it's really her unadorned vocal over Hunter's finely rendered instrumentation that makes the record shimmer like an L.A. sunset. "Cry Sometimes" is a gorgeous cut, a slice of soft rock that goes back to Carly Simon or Rickie Lee Jones, and "Sweet Sixteen" is breezy with brushed acoustic strings and a great, vocal saxophone in a supporting role. "When You're Older" feels like the single -- it could be Tegan & Sara. That's not wrong, but it doesn't quite fit with tracks like the ambitious, steadily building "Anything" or the touching Alaska diary "Come This Far." That's OK. For a debut, Fate Is the Hunter hits its marks wonderfully, offering grace, gravity, simplicity, and well-played, well-placed instrumentation.

Fate Is the Hunter

*** Thanx a lot to [Manu] for these lyrics ***

Someone to Love

You're a porcelain doll that sits in a window
You hold your breath when people walk by
Safely kept behind rose-colored glass
Neatly tucked beneath the spotlight

Waiting for someone to love, waiting for someone to love
Waiting for someone to love

You're a Cheshire cat, you think a smile hides the rest
Ambiguity won't always cover the facts
Where do you come from? Where do you go?
Must be lonely to be all alone

Waiting for someone to love, waiting for someone to love
Waiting for someone to love, waiting for someone to love
Waiting for someone to love, waiting for someone to love

And when they come, they'll accept you just the way you are
You'll sway under a moonlit spell of rocks and sky and trees
Back dropped by the sea, thin wild mercury, thin wild mercury
Until then, you're

Waiting for someone to love, waiting for someone to love
Waiting for someone to love, waiting for someone to love
Waiting for someone to love, waiting for someone to love

When You're Older

Red-eyes fly away from here every night
My intentions aren't unfair or unkind
How else could I purge my heart of this billowed dream?
Arctic wind will be, washed from my hair, trading the forest to the city
Things will be different for you, things will be different for you

When you're older, you'll look back
As you grow you'll understand why I left

All I talk about is you since that day
Remember when I'd cry into my soup and you would say that it's OK
So many things used to break my heart, I'd fall so easily
But you're younger and smarter and harder than me
Things will be different for you, things will be different for you

When you're older, you'll look back
As you grow you'll understand why I left

I'm not comfortable in my own skin, haven't found my finest hour
I can't dance, let alone sing before a crowd
Or write effortlessly what I can't come out and say
When I do, I'll be just like you
Trading the forest for the city
Finding my way down the mountain
Finding my way to the sea

When you're older, you'll look back
As you grow you'll understand
You'll understand

Officer

Forty below, driving on deathly icy roads
Backseat is full of clothes, I gotta talk this over
Run out of gas, wake a stranger up to fill my tank in his pajamas
I only go 10 dollars

I'm not drunk, I wanna go home officer
It's been a long road and I feel awful
I'm not drunk, I wanna go home officer
And that's all, that's all, that's all

She has company and I've walked into
The wrong room so I go to the bathroom
And wash my hands in sulfur water
A twitterpated buzz is coming off of her
My admiration forces me to leave her
She asks me to stay but I've outgrown her
So I'm back in my car and I get pulled over

I'm not drunk, I wanna go home officer
It's been a long road and I feel awkward
I'm not drunk, I wanna go home officer
And that's all, that's all, that's all

With a warning, I check my wipers and defog
I notice my mind is on the floor but I must move onward
So I pick a song and I sing along while lofty dreams dance on and on
Over a place I'll live forever

I'm not drunk, I wanna go home officer
It's been a long road and I feel awful
I'm not drunk, I wanna go home officer
And that's all

I'm not drunk, I wanna go home officer
It's been a long road and everything's awkward
I'm not drunk, I wanna go home officer
And that's all, that's all, that's all

Silence

I know it's there, lit and burning to shine out
I know it's there, itchin', scratchin' just to shout buried treasure saved
Waiting for perfect breezes, perfect waves
When will you dare to wipe that furrow from your brow?
Can't get nowhere halfway
So I'll be here till you're brave, till you say

That you love me, that you love me

And ‘cause I'm left accountable for everything I gain
You've shown too many other ways for me to call it pain
This is just a stupid secret shared too many times
It's kinda like this thing that I would let go if I'm wise
Sorta like the way I feel that sometimes makes me cry
You look just like someone I know that cannot tell a lie
Cannot say, cannot say

That you love me, that you love me

If I could just convince myself of what I'd rather have
If I could just convince myself I'm better off, much better
With silence, with silence

Cry sometimes

My baby, he says he loves me
My baby, he says he needs me so
Covers me with sunshine, tucks me in with songs
Every now and then, troubles come my way
Asks me what to do and to him, I simply say

I gotta cry sometimes but it's all right
I gotta cry sometimes but it's all right
I gotta cry sometimes but it's all right

My baby brings me flowers
Takes me out to see the shows
He don't need complainin', I couldn't ask for more
Every now and then, troubles come my way
Asks me what to do and to him, I simply say

I gotta cry sometimes but it's all right
I gotta cry sometimes but it's all right
I gotta cry sometimes but it's all right

Now I'd like to thank you for everything you do
Whenever I'm around you, you turn my gray skies blue
And if the world should crumble, it's all right

I gotta cry sometimes but it's all right
I gotta cry sometimes, it's all right

Anything

What is meant to be will be, you can't escape your destiny
So kiss the girl and let her see that you would do anything
You would do anything, anything

What is meant to be will be, it happens over time, you'll see
So kiss the boy and set him free ‘cause he would do anything
He would do anything, anything

When you never take the chance
Then there's nothing worth dying or even living for
But everybody knows the saying that goes
All you need is love, all you need is love
But you've got to be willing to give
Anything, anything

All of a sudden it happened there was nothing before it grew
From being alone and empty to belonging and being with you
I possess the honest pleasure of knowing what it means to be loved
I would do anything, I would do anything, anything, anything

Free

Fall back into the snow, sink deep, bury all the troubles that you keep
Follow close to the places your heart leads

Just for a little while, just for a little while
You'll be free, you'll be free

Child, I can tell by the look on your face
You don't think you belong, you don't think you belong in this place
Promise to come back, promise to come back where it's safe

Just for a little while, just for a little while
You'll be free, you'll be free
Just for a little while, just for a little while, just for a little while
You'll be free (I'll be the gold darling that will come tumbling out)
(When you cut up, darling, what you reel in and fish out)
You'll be free, you'll be free, you'll be free

Come This Far

This pale mucha postcard brings back orange carpet
We called roaches butterflies and ate our pies at Birchwood Saloon
Off the only road that leaves the state, I would sing and pass the plate
They all knew me by my face and my father's name

Heavy letter underneath my door, stark reminder when I had before
It's hard to believe I've come this far
Heavy letter in the dresser drawer tore it open like a candy bar
It's hard to believe I've come this far

Bright red hot rod hardtop off to town for Moose's Tooth
You comin' with? To the parkin' lot?
If not, you know my window's never locked
Drew leaned in and said it but his heart wouldn't let it
That's all right, I'll be my husband's wife

Heavy letter makes a perfect mark on the page and in the heart
It's hard to believe I've come this far
Heavy letter in the dresser drawer tore it open like a candy bar
It's hard to believe I've come this far

Nervous tearing through the sky, grieving every inch I gain
Counting pools and freeways, I will sing and pass the plate
They will know me by my face and my father's name

Heavy letter in the dresser drawer tore it open like a candy bar
It's hard to believe I've come this far
Heavy letter headed for your shore, a premonition of what's in store
It's hard to believe we've come this far

Sweet Sixteen

Your hands, they remind me of fond memories
Of the days that can't be taken back, sweet sixteen, sweet sixteen
Cool river waters, dancin' beneath our feet off to sea
Meet me at midnight down by the tree, sweet sixteen, sweet sixteen
Love me forever but if you have to go, say you'll write
Don't send me pictures, I've got you memorized, sweet sixteen
Sweet sixteen, sweet sixteen

Hero

Alycia stands behind me, ties black ribbon in my hair
The sound of heavy boots is slowly pounding up the stairs
The organ pours out slow and soothing old and rugged hymns
I long to find some comfort but my sorrow won't give in
This is the coldest winter in a thousand freezing years
And if I started crying, I could never stop the tears

You don't know what you've done
Not here to see the repercussions of your love
You don't know what you've done, you're not my hero anymore

Times is slowing down like a river clogged with mud
People gather ‘round me, some friends and other's blood
The trumpeter stars playing Taps, the soldiers fire their guns
The folding of the flag makes the tears come in a flood

You don't know what you've done
Not here to see the repercussions of your love
You don't know what you've done, you're not my hero anymore

No one would say you were an easy man
No you were hard and stubborn and plain
And I'm tired of being held back at arm's length
Tired, tired and something's gotta change

You don't know what you've done
I didn't break, no I've grown strong
You don't know what you've done, you're not my hero
You're not my hero anymore, anymore, anymore
You're not my hero anymore
Not here to see the repercussions of your love
You're not my hero anymore, anymore, anymore

Surrender

As I surrender...

 

Kate Earl

Nobody

Nobody took down my guard like you
Nobody moved in their toothbrush so soon
Nobody does whatever they want like you

I'm cards on the table I am spilt milk
There's no use crying there's forces at will
I'm yours for the taking come get your fill

Nobody loves me like you do
Nobody thrills me like you do
Nobody gets me
Nobody kills me like you

Nobody buys me old books like you
Nobody hikes up my skirt like you do
Nobody says they ain't changing like you

I'm painting a picture ‘cause I'm seeing red
You're not the villain I built in my head
The flowers you picked out still sit by the bed

‘Cause nobody loves me like you do
Nobody thrills me like you do
Nobody gets me
Nobody kills me like you

To love you is to go mad
To love you is to lose myself
In meeting you I met my match
There's no sweeter death
No sweeter death than this

Nobody loves me like you do
Nobody thrills me like you do
Nobody gets me
Nobody kills me like you

Nobody loves me like you do
Nobody thrills me like you do
Nobody gets me
Nobody kills me like you

Can't Treat Me That Way

You're not the guy I met
And if you are only get
One chance to prove it
Baby make it count

Maybe she let you do that
Maybe some other fool had
Too many problems to respect herself

You've got a woman who knows her worth
And ain't prepared to compromise it
You better listen you better make it better
But don't make me say

You've got a woman who knows her worth
And ain't prepared to compromise it
You better listen you better make it better
But don't make me say
You can't treat me that way

Maybe it's my mistake
Simple misunderstanding
Trivial bullshit we blew into space
A common lovers rift
Uncommon words thrown like fists
‘Cause if you meant it, baby it's too late

You've got a woman who knows her worth
And ain't prepared to compromise it
You better listen you better make it better
But don't make me say

You've got a woman who knows her worth
And ain't prepared to compromise it
You better listen you better make it better
But don't make me say
You can't treat me that way

You better make it better
You better make it feel right
You better make it feel the way it ought to feel
You better make it better
You better make it feel good
You better do it ‘cause you know that you should

You've got a woman who knows her worth
And ain't prepared to compromise it
You better listen you better make it better
But don't make me say

You've got a woman who knows her worth
And ain't prepared to compromise it
You better listen you better make it better
But don't make me say
You can't treat me that way

Melody

No matter what has ever come to me
I got my own brand of company
I got da da da inside my head
And I play songs back to back until I got to bed

Wake up by myself inside an empty room
There's no body next to mine to oh oh oh
But my skin is warm and my heart is full
It's the do do do do do do

Walking waking on a crowded street
With my head­phones loud
So my hips can swing
So my head can nod
To the rock and roll to the boom boom beat

And I find that I'm never alone
And I find that my heart is my home
And the music within makes me whole
A world that I built on my own

And I know that I'm never alone
And I know that my heart is my home
Every missing piece of me
I can find in a melody
I can find in a melody

No matter what has ever come to me
I got my own kind of company
I got ba ba ba inside my head
And I sing songs back to back until I go to bed

There's a river in my mind that's never still
Swirling, soothing all the time gives me a thrill
Swimming in the notes that go
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Wandering, waking in an empty wood
It is quiet here, I am powerful
I look down below serenade the world
From inside my soul

And I find that I'm never alone
And I find that my heart is my home
And the music within makes me whole
A world that I built on my own

And I know that I'm never alone
And I know that my heart is my home
Every missing piece of me
I can find in a melody
I can find in a melody

When the walls begin to creep in
And the sky is falling down
When I'm swallowed up in feelings
I get lost inside the sound

And I find that I'm never alone
And I find that my heart is my home
And the music within makes me whole
A world that I built on my own

And I know that I'm never alone
And I know that my heart is my home
Every missing piece of me
I can find in a melody

And I find that I'm never alone
And I find that my heart is my home
And the music within makes me whole
A world that I built on my own

And I know that I'm never alone
And I know that my heart is my home
Every missing piece of me
I can find in a melody
I can find in a melody

Only in dreams

I lie in bed and hear the sea
My mind is filled with things I'd be
I'm a perfect girl, only in dreams

There is no longing there's no ache
There's no promises to break
I'm a perfect girl, only in dreams

I only see what I could be
I am fearless I am free
It's a great escape
It's a perfect place to play

Only in dreams
Until my heart returns to me
Until the time that I find peace
I give myself only in dreams

Until my heart returns to me
Until the time that I find peace
I give myself only in dreams

I lie awake and hear the rain
My mind is filled with things I'd say
All the perfect words only in dreams

I see the way that things should be
I feel love surrounding me
It's a great escape
And I never want to leave

Only in dreams
Until my heart returns to me
Until the time that I find peace
I give myself only in dreams

Only in dreams
Can't take that away
My only escape
Can't take that away
My only escape
Can't take that away
Away from me

Until my heart returns to me
Until the time that I find peace
I give myself only in dreams

Only in dreams
Until my heart returns to me
Until the time that I find peace
I give myself only in dreams
Only in dreams
Only in dreams
Only in dreams

All I want

I'd like to tell you what I saw
Asleep in dreams at four years old
I stood upon a stage so tall
Sea of people floating down below

And farther than my eyes could see
These outstretched hearts were turned toward me
And from the center of my being
The purest love was flowing freely

If I could touch one lonely soul
If I could heal and be so bold
To be a spark to be a light
Set one heart on fire
That's all I ever wanted

That's all I want
That's all I ever really wanted
That's all I want
That's all I ever really wanted
That's all I want
That's all I ever really wanted
That's all I ever wanted

If it's wrong for me to want
To change the world with what I got
Let me make my own mistake
That's a chance I'm gonna take

If I'm right I saw you all
In my dream so long ago
And if you're broken you should know
I'm here you're not alone

If I could touch one lonely soul
If I could heal and be so bold
To be a spark to be a light
Set one heart on fire
That's all I ever wanted

That's all I want
That's all I ever really wanted
That's all I want
That's all I ever really wanted
That's all I want
That's all I ever really wanted
That's all I ever wanted

Starlight, star bright
I'm gonna make it right
Starlight star bright
I'll be that star tonight
Starlight star bright
Yes I may yes I might
Alright alright
I'm gonna make it shine

If I could touch one lonely soul
If I could heal and be so bold
To be a spark to be a light
Set one heart on fire
That's all I ever wanted

That's all I want
That's all I ever really wanted
That's all I want
That's all I ever really wanted
That's all I want
That's all I ever really wanted
That's all I ever wanted

That's all I want
That's all I ever really wanted
That's all I want
That's all I ever really wanted
That's all I want
That's all I ever really wanted
That's all I ever wanted

When you're ready

I'll wait patiently
When the world
You're caught up in fades
Come to me

And you know I'm not holding my breath
But you know how to find me
And you know there's a knot in my chest
Only you can untie me

When you're ready for love
‘Cause you know along
I'm the one that you wanted baby
All your reasons are wrong
Now I know why you run
And I'm not leaving
Before I got that you're just lost
I used to think that I wasn't enough
When you're ready for love
‘Cause you know all along
I'm the one that you want baby

You're sane, safe with me
I hope that I've shown you enough
To believe

And you know I'm not holding my breath
But you know how to find me
And you know there's a knot
In my chest only you can untie me

When you're ready for love
‘Cause you know along
I'm the one that you wanted baby
All your reasons are wrong
Now I know why you run
And I'm not leaving

Before I got that you're just lost
I used to think that I wasn't enough
When you're ready for love
‘Cause you know all along
I'm the one that you want baby

It's never too late to put the past away
It's never too late to quit the masquerade
It's never too late to put the past away
It's never too late to quit the masquerade

When you're ready for love
‘Cause you know along
I'm the one that you wanted baby
All your reasons are wrong
Now I know why you run
And I'm not leaving

Before I got that you're just lost
I used to think that I wasn't enough
When you're ready for love
‘Cause you know all along
I'm the one that you want baby

It's never too late to put the past away
It's never too late to quit the masquerade
It's never too late to put the past away
It's never too late to quit the masquerade...

Golden street

People keep saying that I'm a little short on mercy
Say my god forsaken soul will buy me things
Fame and fortune pearly gates and silver wings
Yeah I picked out curtains for my place on golden street

People been calling me sinner
Been calling me wayward saint
Caught a snag along the path that they call straight
Looked down and I saw that I had lost my faith
Turned my back on promises I'd never break

These days I'm just trying to find out what love means
Find my place within this crazy scene
These days I'm just trying to find out what love means
Find my place within this dream

People keep saying I'm going to hell if I don't change
But I sold my soul to God when I was barely eight
All of Jacob's ladders couldn't rescue me
All because I bought that house on golden street

Built a bridge between our hearts but it was weak
Little did I know it wouldn't hold my weight
Now I'm falling fast into a great ravine
Wonder when I land if ill be on my feet

These days I'm just trying to find out what love means
Find my place within this crazy scene
These days I'm just trying to find out what love means
Find my place within this dream

Can you spare me father
A moment of your time
Why'd you hide the answers
In, in between the lines

Life has many colors
Not just black and white
Why do I have questions
When you're always right

These days I'm just trying to find out what love means
Find my place within this crazy scene
These days I'm just trying to find out what love means
Find my place within this dream...

Jump

I could've been a lot of things
A preachers wife or a president and I
I could've been a movie star
Or a stuntman always falling down

I didn't want to fall in love
‘Cause love has always let me down
I didn't wanna hurt again
So I put myself on higher ground

I used to feel so safe
The way I used to be
You brought me to the edge
And baby you have set me free

I think I better jump right now
I think I better jump right now
I think I better jump right now
Baby you have set me free
I think I better jump right now
I think I better jump right now
I think I better jump right now
‘Cause I'm falling anyhow

I could've been a lot of things
A soldiers wife or a centerfold
I could've been a single mother
Junkie always coming down

I didn't wanna roll like that
And lose my self for anything
I only tried to make my life
The best I could and live for me

I used to feel so safe
The way the way I used to be
You brought me to the edge
And baby you have set me free

I think I better jump right now
I think I better jump right now
I think I better jump right now
Baby you have set me free
I think I better jump right now
I think I better jump right now
I think I better jump right now
‘Cause I'm falling anyhow

I like the way you make me feel
I'm not so scared anymore
I found myself when I met you
You make me feel so sure

I think I better jump right now
I think I better jump right now
I think I better jump right now
Baby you have set me free
I think I better jump right now
I think I better jump right now
I think I better jump right now
‘Cause I'm falling anyhow

Everlasting

Another time another place
I'd feel worthy of your love
But I've been stuck inside this cage
‘Cause it's the only place I know

And I've been broken on the floor
So many other times before
Watching some one I trust walk out on me
So don't walk out on me…

I've always been unsure in love
I hated being vulnerable
But with you somehow I know
A love like this is everlasting

I got you underneath my skin
Can't you see the state I'm in
I decide to let you win
‘Cause love like this is everlasting

Love like this is everlasting
Love like this is everlasting
Love like this is everlasting

Another time I would ignore
My tear stained cheeks and ask for more
Believing that's all I deserve
Because I gamble I get burned

Love is just another savage game
I played and played and played
But it looks like fate has saved the best for me
Are you to best for me

I've always been unsure in love
I hated being vulnerable
But with you somehow I know
A love like this is everlasting

I got you underneath my skin
Can't you see the state I'm in
I decide to let you win
‘Cause love like this is everlasting

Love like this is everlasting
Love like this is everlasting
Love like this is everlasting

I don't wanna give up what we got
‘Cause I'm not gonna ask what might have been
I don't wanna give up what I got
When I'm with you baby

I don't wanna give up what we got
‘Cause I'm not gonna ask what might have been
Not for anything I'll take my chances with you baby

I've always been unsure in love
I hated being vulnerable
But with you somehow I know
A love like this is everlasting

Round you I am someone else
Someone closer to myself
Took some time but I can tell
‘Cause love like this is everlasting

Love like this is everlasting
Love like this is everlasting
Love like this is everlasting

Learning to fly

I've made mistakes
But I won't be ashamed
It feels like fate is lifting me
I can't seem to keep my feet on the ground

I no longer hide
So I let the sun wash over me
‘Cause there's no darkness left to hold me down
And I feel it's light
Now I found the spark that was missing in my life

And I earned these wings
I was not born with them
And it's no accident
How I walked through the rain and the fire

‘Cause it taught me how to love
It taught me how to fight
And finally I'm learning to fly
Annally I'm learning to fly

When you lose your way
When you can't escape
When you feel just like a prisoner
Of all the world says you will never be
That's when you can't give up
Gotta hold on tighter now that ever
Answers will find you when you believe
And I feel this light
Now I found the spark that was missing in my life

I earned these wings
I was not born with them
And it's no accident
How I walked through the rain and the fire

‘Cause it taught me how to love
It taught me how to fight
And finally I'm learning to fly
And finally I'm learning to fly

And I tried
Yeah I tried to get somewhere that I'd rather be
But sometimes
The fastest way is not so easy

And I earned these wings
I was not born with them
And it's no accident
How I walked through the rain and the fire

‘Cause it taught me how to love
It taught me how to fight
And finally I'm learning to fly
And finally I'm learning to fly
And finally I'm learning to fly

Impossible

No matter how hard
No matter how tough
There is no turning back
No way you'll ever give up on me
No matter how dark
No matter how deep
The challenges may be
You're gonna find me right here
Always right beside you

Whatever curve life may throw
We're in it together
Cause you and I are building out dream

They say impossible
They say it can't be done
Can't break us down ‘cause we're unstoppable
They say too difficult
That it could never work
They think that we've been trying for too long
But I know better
I know that we're about to show them all

No matter how sick
No matter how tired
Frustrated I become
You never let me give into that
No matter who sees
No matter who thinks
That they can put you down
Go on and hold your head high honey
Circumstances for worse or better
Are no excuse to forfeit our dreams

They say impossible
They say it can't be done
Can't break us down ‘cause we're unstop­pable
They say too difficult
That it could never work
They think that we've been trying for too long
But I know better
I know that we're about to show them all

They can say what they want to
Anyway it never matter what they think
They're still blind and we're still free
I know I know I know

They say impossible
They say it can't be done
Can't break us down ‘cause we're unstoppable
They say too difficult
That it could never work
They think that we've been trying for too long

But I know better
But I know we'll prove them wrong
'Cause I know better
I know that we're about to show them all

I've been drifting
Sleep on floors
‘Cause the bills I can't afford
But I'll find my own way

Had to melt my Mama's gold
But it kept me out of the cold
She would have wanted it that way
I'm getting stronger every day

Times are hungry, could be worse
‘Cause my baby he eats first
And it's nothing I can't take
I'm getting stronger every day

What you got is what you got
Make a little into a lot
With a little bit of luck
We'll make something out of nothing

I am drifting, moving on
Don't have much more than a song
But it's better off this way
I'm getting stronger every day
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And I'll find my own way
I'm getting stronger everyday

Shadows & Light

Babe, if you want to be free
I can't keep you here with me
If you have to go away

But I think you should know
When you're out on your own
That you will find that you made a mistake

The fear that you feel is not real
It's an illusion that will soon
Disappear in my arms

Shadows and light
Day and night
In the darkness I'll be there
By your side
Come back home

I used to think, if I found
Something different, something new
That I wouldn't be afraid
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And so I moved, changed my hair
Got some brand-new clothes to wear
But deep down, I still felt the same

The fear that you feel is not real
It's an illusion that will soon
Disappear in my arms

Shadows and light
Day and night
In the darkness I'll be there
By your side
Come back home
Come back

The fear that you feel is not real
It's an illusion that will soon
Disappear in my arms

Shadows and light
Day and night
In the darkness I'll be there
By your side
Come back home
Come back

Baby you can come back home
You don't have to be alone
Come back home
Doesn't matter where you go
I know you're out there on your own
Come back home

Native Son

I could see the car arrive
the uniforms, they stepped outside
Doorbell rings and breaks the quiet
Hats in hand they come inside

The bitter truth, the disbelief
The shock at first, the waves of grief
How'm I gonna carry on
When everything is gone

Oh native son
Oh where have you gone
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
He was only seventeen
Local boy with small-town dreams
No one ever questioned it
Figured it was his best bet

Straight from school to his first tour
The constant fear that he endured
How are you gonna carry on
So far away from home

Oh native son
Oh where have you gone
Oh native son
You're not coming home

Folded flag, the family name
Proud soldier in a picture frame
How are we gonna carry on
When all our faith is gone

Oh native son
(How am I supposed to carry on)
Oh where have you gone
(How am I supposed to carry on)
Oh native son
(How am I supposed to carry on)
You're not coming home
(All my faith is gone)
Oh native son
(How am I supposed to carry on)
Oh where have you gone
(All my faith, all my faith is gone)
Oh native son
(How am I supposed to carry on)
You're not coming home

Not The End Of The World

It's not the end of the world
I don't love you anymore
There's other girls
Pick your heart up off the floor

Don't call my phone
Don't leave a message at the tone
Don't come by my home
'Cause I might not be alone

Don't send me gifts
I don't want flowers
Don't talk to my friends
They're mine, not ours
Don't give me nothing but space

It's not the end of the world
I don't love you anymore
There's other girls
Pick your heart up off the floor

Don't call my mom
She never wanted you to be her son
Don't come by my job
I gave a photo of you to the security guard

Don't buy me drinks
Don't even go there
What makes you think that I still care
You ain't nothin' that I can't replace

It's not the end of the world
I don't love you anymore
There's other girls
Pick your heart up off the floor

It's not the end of the world
I don't want you anymore
Don't make it worse
Now I'm walking out the door
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
It's not the end of the world
I don't love you anymore
There's other girls
Pick your heart up off the floor

It's not the end of the world
I don't want you anymore
Don't make it worse
Now I'm walking out the door

Get over it, baby
Get over it, baby

Loyalty

Loyalty
Will you break promises and send for me
When life is not the way it's supposed to be
Will I have your loyalty

Hold my hand
I wanna tell you that I understand
When they break in and confiscate the plans
You'll have my loyalty

And it's not the first time
It's not the last time
You'll have to live one down
Your heart is shattered, what does it matter
I will be around

When you're down
Hallucinating on the edge of town
When everybody else has let you down
You'll have my loyalty
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Because it's not the first time, it's not the last time
You'll have to live one down
Your heart is shattered, what does it matter
I will be around
I'll be around, I'll be around

Raven

You don't always have to play the martyr
Stop carrying those dark clouds around
Everybody's been broken-hearted
Don't let it keep you down

Raven
You're not the only one who feels this
Raven
You're not the only one who feels this way
Who feels this way

I remember the first time I saw you
I was taken by your confidence
Dark eyes and a burning desire
I wonder where you've been
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Raven
You're not the only one who feels this
Raven
You're not the only one who feels this
Raven
You're not the only one who feels this way
Who feels this way
Who feels this way

Raven, you don't have to play the martyr
Stop carrying them dark clouds 'round
You don't always have to make it harder
No one else is bringing you don't

Raven
You're not the only one who feels this
Raven
You're not the only one who feels this
Raven
You're not the only one who feels this way
Who feels this way

Raven
You're not the only one who feels this
Raven
You're not the only one who feels this
Raven
You're not the only one

Wicked Love

I tried to do the right thing
You're the only one who knows
Thunder caught me, lightning struck me
Oh so long ago

You opened up the heavens babe
You opened up this rose
I was just a game to you
But still it's you I chose

'Cause you give me that
Wicked love
You give me that
Wicked love
You give me that
Wicked love

You never ?? your pain
Is a funny way to show you care
But cursive love is worth it
When I see you layin' there
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I'd give it all to hold you one more time
Before you're gone
But you stay out of reach
Enough to keep me in your palm

When you give me that
Wicked love
You give me that
Wicked love
You give me that
Wicked love

Even to the empty bed
The sun won't come and find me
Bathing in your light
Your presence lingers close behind me

Still it hurts like rock and roll
Your voice comes out the radio
But if you hold a place for me
Then I'll keep taking you in

You give me that
Wicked love
You give me that
Wicked love
You give me that
Wicked

Wicked love
Wicked love
Wicked love...

Is There Anyone Out There

I'm travelling a lonely road
Everywhere I go alone
I'm carrying a heavy load
Carry it on my own

I'm feeling so far away
Can't remember yesterday
I'm living with the choice I made
A lonely road is the price I paid

Is there anyone out there
Can you hear me calling to you
Is there anyone out there
I'm calling, calling for you
You
Calling for you

Bright lights on an empty stage
Red bird in a gilded cage
The devil and a deal I made
And a great escape

Is there anyone out there
Can you hear me calling to you
Is there anyone out there
I'm calling, calling for you
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Is there anyone out there
Can you hear me calling to you
Is there anyone out there
I'm calling, calling for you

Calling, calling
Calling, calling for you

I'm travelling a lonely road
Everywhere I go alone
I'm carrying a heavy load
Carry it on my own

Is there anyone out there
Can you hear me calling to you
Is there anyone out there
I'm calling, calling for you

Is there anyone out there
Can you hear me calling to you
Is there anyone out there
I'm calling, calling for you

Calling, calling for you
Calling, calling for you

I Get Around

I like a man with a motorcycle
Tattooed and tanned
Dropped out of high school

He sits between my legs
Boots and black leather
My arms around his waist
Wind in my feathers

He don't try to tie me down
I get around, I get around

I like the sand
Sugar in Rome
A weekend in France
La vie du bohème

You can to try to track me down
'Cause I get around, I get around
I go
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I'm always restless
And when I'm unsteady
I got a suitcase
Packed and it's ready

So don't try to tie me down
I get around, I get around
I get around, baby, I get around
I go

Anchor Song

( Bjork Cover / Live )

 I live by the ocean
And during the night
I dive into it
Down to the bottom
Underneath all currents
And drop my anchor
This is where I'm staying
This is my home
This is my home

 I live by the ocean
And during the night
I dive into it
Down to the bottom
Underneath all currents
And drop my anchor
This is where I'm staying
This is my home
This is my home
This is my home
This is my home

A case of you

( Joni Mitchell Cover / Live )

Just before our love got lost you said
I am as constant as a northern star
And I said constant in the darkness
Where's that at
If you want me I'll be in the bar

On the back of a cartoon coaster
In the blue tv screen light
I drew a map of canada
Oh canada
And your face sketched on it twice

Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
Oh and you taste so bitter but you taste so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you
And I would still be on my feet
Oh I'd still be on my feet

Oh I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
I'm frightened by the devil
And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid
I remember that time that you told me, you said
Love is touching souls
Surely you touched mine
Cause part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time

Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
And you taste so bitter but you taste so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you
I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
And still be on my feet

Tongue Tied

Tongue Tied

My boy is mad hot
One touch I'm shell-shocked,
Makes my heart Foxtrot, non-stop
Could've been a one night stand, oh man
Could've been a passing thing
Just a little boom boom bang
But we keep going again, going again, oh

This heat it won't stop
He makes me jackpot
Our eyes are blood-shot, dumb-struck
Think we've got a perfect ten, oh man
And every bit of luck we can
'Cause I got my ace in hand
Can we go round again, round again

This must be love
'Cause every night our words are tongue-tied up
Pillow talk just sounds like double dutch
Like we drank too much, yeah once we touch
Words come out like

I scoop that ice cream
He licks the plate clean
No time just more please, strip-tease
Wanna another helping hand, oh man
Polish every room we can
Yeah we gotta do the damn thing
And keep your mama coming again, coming again

This must be love
'Cause every night our words are tongue-tied up
Pillow talk just sounds like double dutch
Like we drank too much, yeah once we touch
Words come out like

Oh dang, money in the bank
Every time I'm walking my way yeah
That thing standing in the rain
That'll drive a woman insane yeah

My finger's following
A tattoo of angel wings
This devil starts to grin
'Cause I'm his favourite kind of sin

This must be love
'Causes every night our words are tongue-tied up
Pillow talk just sounds like double dutch
Like we drank too much, yeah once we touch
Words come out like

Baddabing Baddaboom

I lie for you
I lie and cheat and still I cry for you
And when I'm in your arms I die for you
And so comes a little death

I'm blind for you
The only man to cross my line is you
My house of cards has been designed for you
My daddy's got a magic trick

This Cleopatra's got her eyes for you
Tucked away inside my bed

I dream of you
I am the cat who got the cream for you
You know I crawl and scratch and scream to you
You do that dirty trick again

Baddabing baddaboom

I Love You

I love you, I love you
I love you, yes I do
I want to, I want to
I want to, yes it's true
But all the boys who came
Ahead of you were mean
And now it's hard to give myself away

You must be too good to be true
Or are you, or are you

You kiss me, you kiss me
You say baby it's alright
I see you, I see you so clearly
When I close my eyes
So why am I so scared
To let you comb my hair
All sweet and golden on with good intent

You must be too good to be true
You must be too good to be true
Or are you, or are you

I love you, I love you
I love you, yes I do
I want you, I want you
I want you, yes it's true
Maybe it's not too late
To heal the heart that breaks
To feel only pleasures than pain
