Heart of Gold

I spent two years writing these songs

eagerly moving on

packed up my bags

to a new state

I even changed my name

Made a record, sent it around

much to my dismay

No one likes a girl like me

at least that’s what they say

After a few long years

You start to think it’s true

They can use hateful words

and take all your money

they can fight with rain

and call you names

they can steal your thunder

and taunt you with fame

but no one can take your heart of gold away

There comes a time when you want

more than what you have

trinkets from travels

diamonds rings

the american dream

So what happens I don’t sell my songs

you were right all along

I made you sing

sunshine or rain

until my dying day

After a few long years

I’d hope this was true

They can use hateful words

and take all your money

they can fight with rain

and call you names

they can steal your thunder

and taunt you with fame

but no one can take your heart of gold away

Star Spangled Pride

Why don’t you spend all your money

On building a boat to get yourself out of here

Why don’t you call up your friends

And use all that fuel to see if there’s life on Mars

Why don’t you get away for awhile

It’s the way you speak in sirens

It’s the way you pose like a lion

It’s the way you wear your crown of lies

We’ll save our applause for goodbye

Why don’t you lace those ol’ boots

And walk through the deepest canyons of Utah

Why don’t you rise with the sun

The rose painted sky could teach you a thing or two

Why don’t you get away for good

It’s the way your greed guides your feet

It’s the way you choose money over peace

It’s the way you lead with your star spangled pride

We won’t give up our fight

It’s the way you are

It’s the way you are

It’s the way you are

The Way The Wind Blows

I wanted to love you the same

as you loved me

but something always pushed me away

You were always one step ahead

of my heart

I was left feeling ashamed

Sometimes love is not enough

it sails away and it’s rough

but you gotta trust the way the wind blows

the south ain’t bad if you grow

I can’t be with you anymore

but I am strong

I wanted to look back and laugh

at chaos

it’s still clear as a photograph

you built a wall to forget

the mess we made

hit rewind record over this cassette

Sometimes love is not enough

it sails away and it’s rough

but you gotta trust the way the wind blows

the south ain’t bad if you grow

I can’t be with you anymore

but I am strong

Honey Bee

Watcha gonna do

watcha gonna do with yourself

seems like every time somethings right or even wrong

you just wanna smoke it out

I get that it feels good

I know that life is hard

but I don’t wanna build a life with a man

hiding behind a vice

Being dependent

is being alive

flowers depend on

the hive

bees need nectar

to survive

but being addicted

is not being wise

It’s all in the balance

honey don’t tip the scale

Watcha gonna do

watcha gonna do with yourself

seems like every time somethings right or even wrong

you just wanna smoke it out

I get that it feels good

I know that life is hard

but I don’t wanna build a life with a man

hiding behind a vice

It’s all in the balance

honey don’t tip the scale

Watcha gonna do

watcha gonna do with yourself

when all the honey bees and the sunflowers

are gone for good

Rainstorm

Washing away your love

like a rainstorm

I’d dry it up

but I like to sulk

Every time you leave

I bite my tongue

I don’t know

if I can weather the storm

Cuz every time you leave me

I push you away

every time you leave me

I get so lonely

Call me crazy

or maybe I don’t wanna be with someone I never see

Bidding away the time like a sailor at sea get’s lonely

Every time you leave I feel the waves

of uncertainty

they’re crashing upon me

Cuz every time you leave me

I push you away

every time you leave me

I get so lonely

Call me crazy

or maybe I don’t wanna be with someone I never see

Can you even look at yourself without seeing me

am I the ghost in your machine

tell me could you please

Call me crazy

or maybe I don’t wanna be with someone I never see

Calling You The Same

Am I a fool?

Am I a saint?

Can’t get over you

Tell me the truth

If I pray will it go away

and you called me baby

now she’s calling you the same

Spin me around

What do I got but a heart in knots

Slap in the face

A girl on your side

in so little time

and you called me baby

now she’s calling you the same

You never knew how to be alone

Did you fall for her to forget it all

What’s so bad about learning to be alone

Just remember it’s all irreplaceable 

Am I a fool?

Am I a saint?

Can’t get over you

Pine Tree Eyes

You said don’t pine for me in California

But what about those pine tree eyes

You said I’m letting you go from afar

but what’s the point when I still love you

Love is reckless

it has no reason

then your forced to say goodbye

You said we need some space for two months

over tear-stained telephone calls

You said we need to move on on our own

but what’s the point when I still need you

Love is reckless

it has no reason

then your forced to say goodbye

Love is reckless

it has no reason

but still it knows no end

I still love you

I still love you

I’ll always love those pine tree eyes

The Sun Don’t Always Shine

It burns me when I step outside

It hides within my colorful eyes

It clouds up my vision

and melts my disposition

It warms my chest

but it hurts my heart

It only comes out

after the dark

It meant so much to me

before I got here

The sun don’t always shine in California

I wish someone would have told me

spin the globe and point out a destination

happiness is not where your finger lands

it’s in your hands

If doubt is the Pacific Ocean

then I live within it’s swells

The waves come crashin’ and I, I dive right in

Sometimes my doubt, it casts shadows

that seem larger than the night

but I’m not afraid of the dark this time

The sun don’t always shine in California

I wish someone would have told me

spin the globe and point out a destination

happiness is not where your finger lands

it’s in your hands

Happiness is not where your finger lands

it’s in your hands

Soft Clouds

Living this life makes me feel like

I’m falling head on into the clouds

A million no’s and I don’t think so’s

until I’m landing onto softer ground

well the beauty is I can’t count on my hands

how many times I fall and choose to stand

I get down

almost every single day

I go for a walk

and I remember it’ll all be ok

your only one step away

If not your falling back down to the ground

back into the arms of the soft, soft clouds

It’s as hard as putting fire out

that’s the scary thing about doubt

It’s a lazy river turned waterfall

it’s a choo choo train it’s full speed ahead

If I recall you once said

just let those thoughts pass through your head

I get down

almost every single day

I go for a walk

and I remember it’ll all be ok

your only one step away

If not your falling back down to the ground

back into the arms of the soft, soft clouds

It takes you for a ride

it’s not all fun in games

it’s a slow and steady climb

to end up in the rain

and when you think your through

it knocks you down again

I get down

almost every single day

I go for a walk

and I remember it’ll all be ok

your only one step away

If not your falling back down to the ground

back into the arms of the soft, soft clouds

back into the arms of the soft, soft clouds
