Track Name: Stop Light
Walking down the street again
Something else has caught my breath
When will I fall again?

Everyone is starring back
One more time I won’t look back
and I won’t forget

So I pray for a sign
thinking this will be another point of view
I wait at the stop light
and I open up my eyes this time
I pray for a sign

Wondering which way to go
Where I stand I just don’t know
but time will surely tell

I can only take a step
Hope that I will not regret
And live out my life

(chorus)

All of these signs
made me believe I had to change
But here at the light
I finally find my feet again

(chorus)
Track Name: Everyday Love
Sometimes I feel like being alone
Where my thoughts are my own
and I’ve got room to breathe

But you open my eyes
to the love thats inside
you’re the one that lets me be me

So take all that I have
I don’t want to stand in this world on my own
I’ll give all that I am
Nothing is better than being with you
It’s my everyday love
You’re my everyday love

It’s hard to admit when your wrong
and you’ve fallen short
from the person that you thought you’d be

But you don’t seem to care
you are so aware
of the on that I am honestly

(chorus)

Bridge:
And if I should fall apart in silence
maybe this time I’ll believe
that I’m better off when I am on my knees
oh please.....
Track Name: Why
I’m at war with myself
I can’t breathe I can’t sleep at night
These voices inside my head
Keep telling me to break and telling me to bend

It’s a long way down
and I’m standing on the edge
come take my hand
show me a better place to live

‘cause nothing makes sense anymore
I’m just climbing the fence anymore
Trying to run away and hide
The only question I have is why


Somethings gotta give
I feel like I’m being pulled
from the left and the right
It’s like an amusement park
and I’m on a ride
I just can’t get off
Track Name: Red Door
You keep pushing me down
When I need you the most
You’ve got me running for the door
Like I just saw a ghost

When I’m feeling low
You make me feel lower
What ever happened to the sound
Of for better or worse

I want to scream out loud
but I have to stay so quiet
I want to cry but the tears don’t want to
seem to fall
It’s just so hard stuck right here in the middle
All I see staring up at me is a red door

I can’t explain every move I make
Just to make you happy
What happened to the girl who
made you happy for the person she was

Bridge:
It hurts to breathe
I’m slipping underneathe
This is not where I thought we would be.
Track Name: Writer
I want to be a writer
but my hand won’t pen the words
It’s hard to break free of the struggles
You can’t understand

My daily inner struggle
To be more than what I am
It’s like taking a leap
without a safe place to land

Who am I to you
Will someone come and find me
I’m waiting for a clue
I’m waiting for an answer
Who am I to you

I never have decided
Why this fear won’t let me go
Why am I holding onto things I can’t control
So I’ll sit in silence
and figure out just who I am
I’ll close my eyes and try not to let judgement stand

(chorus)

Bridge:
why am I holding back
why am I waiting here
My head is filled with
lies I told myself for so many years
Track Name: 100 Miles To Charleston
When we left that late November day, it was colder than I had remembered
Driving in an old Dodge Aries, we were trying to make our way down those snowy roads that storm delivered

we’re a hundred miles to Charleston
There’s still several more to go
The night is almost gone
there’s a lot of road behind me and the sky is black and cold
And I can’t wait to see the sun again

If there’s no relief in sight, we’re heading home
These plans we made will be long forgotten
How I’d love to make that drive down Summerville Road
And see your smiling face as we sit around the table

we’re a hundred miles to Charleston
There’s still several more to go
The night is almost gone
there’s a lot of road behind me and the sky is black and cold
And I can’t wait to see the sun again

I need something to help me stay awake
My eyes, they seem a little strained
So lead me on star and help me make it through the night
We’ve got to get to where we’re going

we’re a hundred miles to Charleston
There’s still several more to go
The night is almost gone
there’s a lot of road behind me and the sky is black and cold
And I can’t wait to see the sun again
