lyrics 

By City or By Sea

Everybody has a road they have taken
Everybody has a piece that is unknown
I know that you’d take my heart and you’d keep it
In a place where no one ever could touch
In a place where no one ever could touch

Everybody has a song they are singing
Everybody’s unrecognizable sometimes
I know that you’d take my life and you’d give it
Every piece of joy that you have
Every piece of joy that you have

I’ll drive the roads of Oklahoma
And I’ll meet you in the Florida Keys
I’ll take a train up north to Bangor
All to be with you by city or by sea
Anywhere you are, that’s where I’ll be

Everybody has a love hidden some place
Everybody has a candle burned out
I know that you’d take my hand and you’d hold it
If I let you underneath the moonlight
If I let you underneath the moonlight

I’ll kiss you in the heart of Georgia
And I’ll meet you on the Jersey shore
I’ll love the winters of Alaska
All to be with you by city or by sea
Anywhere you are, that’s where I’ll be

I’ll dance across the plains of Texas
And I’ll meet you in the California sun
I’ll walk the streets of Philadelphia
All to be with you by city or by sea
Anywhere you are, that’s where I’ll be

Bedroom Light

You’ve gone away; you’ve taken flight
But I’m underneath the very moon that you see at night
There’s nothing to say, there’s nothing to be, it’s only me

When you come down, you come down slow
You take me in, you wear me down, then you let me go
There’s nothing to change, there’s nothing to find,
My heart is blind.

Chorus
Whatever road you take, I hope it’s one I’m on
With every note I sing, you’re somewhere in the song
And when you’re broken down and need my loving arms
I’ll leave the bedroom light on

I fall back in, I can fall so fast
I pick you up, I hold on tight and make it last
There’s nothing to do, there’s nothing to fight
There’s only you tonight

Chorus 2x

I Take It All

So it goes, it’s the same old thing
The story everyone already seems to know of life
It ain’t hard to muddle through the hours
‘cause I never thought I’d even get this far in time

So I wait for suns to set and rise
So I wait for truth between the lies

Chorus
I take it all in stride
I take it all inside
I take it all to heart
I take it all apart
I take it all

So I see that the road that I am taking
isn’t going where you thought that it would lead for me
Oh but it’s all right because I wake up every morning
and decide that I am happy with my life for me

So I hold my heart in every sound
So I hold this world on higher ground

Chorus

So I wait, I shoulder all the doubt
So I wait, I’m breathing in and out

Chorus
I take it all from you and I give it all back too
I take it all, I take it all

Karen’s Song

I am not a beautiful thing
And I am not a song that I sing
And I am not a smile that I give
And I am not a moment I live
I am not the people I know
And I am not the places I go
And I am not the work that I do
And I am not a savior for you

I am not the stories I tell
And I am not an angel who fell
And I am not a piece incomplete
And I am not the eyes that you meet
I am not a thing you can break
And I am not a conquest you make
And I am not the dark or the light
I am the air, and you are the kite.

So hold on, so hold on, so hold on.

I am not a thing you can break
And I am not a conquest you make
And I am not the dark or the light
I am the air, and you are the kite.

You Missed Out On Me

I, I met a boy, he was the kind
The kind of boy my mom would like
He swept me up right off my feet
And so went the days and weeks
We’d go for a walk, we’d go for a bite
And everything felt so right
So there we were and then it came
The day you pushed me away

Chorus
You and I, I guess that we never quite saw eye-to-eye
And in my mind, I am recounting the facts of the crime
And the jury finds that it is really your loss it ain’t mine
Oh you, you missed out on me

You, you called me up most everyday
And honey you had so much to say
You fed me line right after line
Yeah you had me good and primed
So I gave you my all, I gave you my world
And I was a happy girl
You never called me after this –
Oh forget you, you’re not worth it (or explicit lyrics!)

Chorus

All of the nights you laid in my arms
I sang you to sleep, I made you complete
Are now only empty moments of ours to bury in peace

Chorus

I Love You (Yes, I Love You)

I can’t breathe, and oh you got my tongue so tied
I can stand, I fall from al the butterflies
I feel right down to my toes
In my heart, in my soul, in my blood, in my bones

Chorus
So I will wait until the stars align ‘cause it was fate
The day that you walked into my life and decided to stay
Awhile and now every time I see you I just smile
And I say I love you, yes, I love you in every way

I can’t look your way, I’m suddenly so shy
I can’t find the words to let you know that I
I feel right down to my toes
In my heart, in my soul, in my blood, in my bones

Chorus

I feel it down to my toes
In my heart, in my soul, in my skin, in my bones
Oh so…

Chorus 2x

Don’t you know I wanna shout it from the rooftop babe
How I love every little thing you do and you say
I wanna sing it from the rooftop babe
That I love you, yes, I love you in every way

All Over Again

When I’m feeling low
You’re the one who’s there to let me blow
My nose into your sleeve and wipe my tears
You kiss my salty cheeks and you don’t care
You only care for me

When I’m feeling high
You’re the one I call with reasons why
And I can hear you smile at the end of the line
I talk for the whole time, and you don’t care
You only care for me

Chorus
I could fall in love with you
I could fall in love with you
I could fall in love with you again.
All over again

When I’m feeling sad
You’re the place I turn when times are bad
‘cause I worry for the world and I go mad
You hold me in your arms, and you don’t care
You only care for me

Chorus

When I’m feeling fine
You break out the candles and the wine
You tell me I am beautiful; you’re so kind
And then I roll my eyes, and you don’t care
You only care for me

Chorus

Sleep Now

Tonight I’ll be with you, tonight I will kiss you
Take all the madness from the hours
Cry if you want to, I will cry with you
Give me your troubles and your worries
‘cause nothing is wrong now, everyone’s gone now
Just lay your skin against my skin
I will take on the world, I’ll be a good girl
I’ll make sure the sun will rise again

Chorus
Oh it’s okay, come and lay down beside me and I’ll take
Away your pain, I’ll touch your face
Just as gently as I can
I’ll hold your hand, and tell you all
The things I love about you, god, the list is long
I’ll sing a song so you can just sleep now

Just close your eyes and quiet your mind
And just drift away into the calm
Wait for tomorrow, for now drown your sorrow
And there I will be to chase the rain

Chorus 2x

Silly Song

I’d like to sing a song
And I hope you’ll sing along
‘cause I’d like to sing a song with you

I’d like to hum a tune
And I hope you’ll hum it too
‘cause I’d like to hum a tune with you

I can’t think of a better way
To spend my night or spend my day
Just lying in the grass with you
The crickets and the June bugs, too
I can’t think of a better time
Than making up a simple rhyme
And making up a chord or two
So I can sing this song with you

I’d like to sing a song
And I hope you’ll sing along
‘cause I’d like to sing a song with you

I can’t think of a better way
To spend my night or spend my day
Just lying in the grass with you
The crickets and the June bugs, too
I can’t think of a better time
Than making up a simple rhyme
And making up a chord or two
So I can sing this song with you

I’d like to sing a song
And I hope you’ll sing along
‘cause I’d like to sing a song with you
Repeat
