Track Name: Blueprints
Blueprints

I wish there were blueprints of my heart
So I could tell you where to start to find me
And I would lay them out so clear
You could know every single fear that binds me
Maybe this time you’d see

If I could tell you how to love me
I wish I could tell you how to love me

I wish that your love could knock down walls
Open the windows flood the halls to reach me
We’ve got a new story to design
Page after page we’ll draw new lines that free me
Maybe you wouldn’t leave


If I could show you how to love me
I wish I could show you how to love me
If I could tell you how to love me
I wish I could tell you how to love me


This house has seen so many storms
It’s been burned right to the core
If I could unlock every door
Do you think I’m still worth fighting for?


If I could tell you how to love me
I wish I could tell you how to love me
If I could show you how to love me
I wish I could show you how to love me
Track Name: Caged Bird
Caged Bird

Little red bird I can see
Your frail and tore up broken wing
Little red bird you can’t fly
You hum your secret lullaby

Come on, let your song out, set it free
Open up that caged bird melody
Wail it out now, you know it’s your key
Sing your song, reclaim this tragedy

Little red bird all alone
You’ve tried to make the prison home
Little red bird terrified
To let these hands come reach inside
Let these hands come reach inside

Come on, let your song out, set it free
Open up that caged bird melody
Wail it out now, you know it’s your key
Sing your song, reclaim this tragedy

Oh, caged bird, caged bird
Will you sing?
Love can mend a broken wing
Caged bird, caged bird
You will fly
Let my love come reach inside

Come on, let your song out, set it free
Open up that caged bird melody
Wail it out now, you know it’s your key
Sing your song, reclaim this tragedy

Baby Jesus, Mr. God
Do you see her tore apart?
Do you listen to her song?
Do you ever sing along?
Track Name: Letting Go
Letting Go - Chelsea Davis & Ana Sanchez

The peach hour slips through my fingertips
The sun lets out a sigh and makes my heart cry
The golden day turns like this maze we wander through
Wondering who will find us when her light is gone

She sings beyond the horizon
With her gold sequin dress spread out like a fan
Her beauty shimmers effervescent
Wisps of rays trailing behind her in the sand

Oh sister sun, as you’re bending low
Tell me why you go
Tuck me in to bed
Kiss my cheek then turn your head
Shadows enfold
You whisper, “let go...”

One last kiss goodbye---a lipstick stained sky
She flashes a smile & walks out in style
Her glory goes to shine on other faces now
We’re left all alone to dread the night’s descent

She lights the world with her fire
Then leaves her children in the cold
They cry but she can’t hear them calling
Hands lift them from the cradle, fear takes hold

Oh sister sun, as you’re bending low
Tell me why you go
Tuck me in to bed
Kiss my cheek then turn your head

Oh sister sun, as you’re bending low
Tell me why you go
Nightmares on the wall
Creeping down the hall
You disappear and whisper, “Let go.”

Sister sun, off to one more show.
Track Name: Lamentation
Lamentation

My body is a bombed-out house
A shell of what it used to be
A casualty of one man’s dream
He broke all the pretty things

And I scream and scream
But no one hears me over these grenades
And I scream and scream
But now his hand is covering my face

CHORUS:
Say a prayer
Be a good girl now
With a kiss, it’ll all be over soon
Hold real still--
if you like it,
we’ll get ice cream and I’ll take you to the zoo

The taste of ash invades my mouth
I feel it burn as it goes down
Disintegration is my crown
It’s a hard-won victory

And he screams and screams
And I float right through the crack there in the wall
And he screams and screams
But he doesn’t know that I’m above it all


Say a prayer
Be a good girl now
With a kiss, it’ll all be over soon
Hold real still--
if you like it,
we’ll get ice cream and I’ll take you to the zoo


But I have a secret kingdom
One that he’ll never find
I go there every time he comes
Cause it’s there my body’s mine

My body is a bombed-out house... Can’t rebuild it
Track Name: Oceans
Oceans

I am ocean with skin on
You are the ship I’m bearing home
When you’re too tired to sail on
Come rest, rest here in my arms

Your mama should’ve held you while you cried
I’m sorry for all of the beauty you had to hide
Your mama should’ve told you you were good
You can let go
If you want to

Because I am an ocean with skin on
My love is an anchor in the deep
When your heart is too heavy to go on
Come rest, I’ll rock you to sleep

Your mama should’ve held you while you cried
I’m sorry for all of the beauty you had to hide
Your mama should’ve told you you were good
You can let go
If you want to

Don't be afraid
Don't be afraid
Don't be afraid
You are safe now
Don't be afraid
Don't be afraid
I won’t leave you if you cry

Your mama should’ve held you while you cried
I’m sorry for all of the beauty you had to hide
Your mama should’ve told you you were good
You can let go, If you want to
You can let go, If you want to
You can let go if you want to
Hush now
Track Name: Love Outlasts
We’re almost there, baby
Barely held our ground through this
I must admit I didn’t think we’d make it
But we’re still here

We’re almost there, baby
It’s time for superman to rest
Atlas take the world down off your shoulders
Take a breath

We forgot what it’s like to smile
We forgot what it’s like to laugh
We don’t know why we’re on this godforsaken planet
We forgot our better halves
but love outlasts


We’re almost there, baby
You know I’ve had your back through this
When we go down, we’re going down together
That’s what love is

We forgot what it’s like to smile
We forgot what it’s like to laugh
We don’t know why we’re on this godforsaken planet
We forgot our better halves
but love outlasts

What do we do when there’s nothing left to give?
Do we reach down deeper?
Do we look up higher?
When we just can’t hold it together
Love outlasts

We forgot what it’s like to smile
We forgot what it’s like to laugh
We don’t know why we’re on this godforsaken planet
We forgot our better halves

We forgot what it’s like to smile
We forgot what it’s like to laugh
We don’t know why we’re on this godforsaken planet
We forgot our better halves
but love outlasts

Love outlasts
Love outlasts
Love outlasts
Love outlasts
