Track Name: So High
SO HIGH

V1:
Mama use to tell me you can’t always win
But all I want is to see you again
And she said we were moving too fast
Two crazy kids down a dead end track
Daddy use to say that you were no good
You’d never love me the way you should
And he said you could only play games
You’d draw me close and then you’d push me away

CHORUS:
But if they knew my addiction for your love
Like some kind of drug
‘Cause with you I always felt so high
Didn’t wanna come down I was flying high

V2:
Untouchable heart, untouchable soul
You took my love and then you left me alone
What is it about me that makes you so afraid
I see you at night but you hide from the day

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE:
You’re the kind of love I can’t afford
You always leave me wanting more
You run through my veins like an ocean tide
And only you can make me feel this high

REPEAT CHORUS

* 2004 UK Songwriting Contest – Miscellaneous Category Runner Up *

BLUE
V1:
i love the way you move
i catch my breath
cause i'm scared to death
i give it away and hope you stay
i stumble over you
i'm falling fast so i hold on tight
i lose myself i lose my mind

CHORUS:
and it's you that always leaves me
black and blue
where do we go from here
how do i turn my skies to blue

V2:
i wonder where you are
i don't know why but everything has changed
i take it back the mistakes i've made
oh i've made

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: LA
V1:
Where you going now
you're always scared of change
lingering around the corner
waiting for a sunny day
and all those thoughtless strangers
and forgotten names
Well this is LA
Welcome to LA

CHORUS:
Hey little girl did your daddy do you wrong
Is that why you always write sad songs
well he never meant to
so find a place
where you belong
where you belong

V2:
There you go again
the ones you love you push away
you can run for so long
but you can't run from pain
chased by your demons
they only weigh you down
he only wanted to be good to you
and good things they come around

REPEAT CHORUS

It's all coming down
good things they come around
you'll find your way somehow
it's all coming down...
Track Name: Roam
We always sit and talk about the weather
And after all these letters well there’s nothing left to say
And you and I we’re both two of a kind
We’re always wondering why
Something more hasn’t come our way
But I refuse to believe
This is the only life for me

So I roam
These open roads
The nights are bitter
And the days are cold
So I roam
These open roads
In search of better
In search of home

You seem surprised I see it in your eyes
But I can’t lie
This was never what I had in mind
And walking this line pretending everything’s fine
Well this isn’t living it’s just getting by
And I maybe naïve
But not too proud to leave

So I roam
These open roads
The nights are bitter
And the days are cold
So I roam
These open roads
In search of better
In search of home
