Track Name: Bonnie and Clyde
Boy meets girl I’m told
This is what unfolds
A story of life and sin
A smile a wink a grin

I’ll have your back and you’ll have mine
An elegant dance of fading time
Our friends will revel our enemies seethe
It all comes down to you and me

Bullet proof duo fighting fate
Miles away from salvation’s gate
Oil and water of a different kind
Your defeaning siren made me blind

Follow my lead if you don’t mind
Show me your demons deep inside
I’ll be the hero by your side
You’ll be the Bonnie to my Clyde

Now they’re falling apart
This wasn’t what they sought
Maybe they’ll meet again
Wrong guy wrong girl wrong end
Track Name: Faraway Girl
She sees the world as a different place
her super power will seal her fate
Flawed and strengthened all in one
Ready to scream out loud “DONE, DONE, DONE”

Hurt by many, understood by few
The immense amount of radiance that no one knew

She hides from the world deep within
The world’s to blame for this shameful sin
Not ready to follow, Not ready to lead
Not ready for her to bring us to our knees

Hurt by many, understood by few
The immense amount of radiance that no one knew

No more long goodbyes
Now your on her time
Now she’s flying away
Oh no please don’t let her stay

She’s a Faraway Girl but shes doesn’t need to be
Art and grace are for all to see
She’s a Faraway Girl but we don’t need her to be
Too much beauty to set her free
She’s a Faraway Girl but shes doesn’t need to be
Art and grace are for all to see
She’s a Faraway Girl is that her destiny?
Too much beauty to set her free

Viewing the world upside down
Hearing the music make a different sound
Just take a seat sit and enjoy
Hold your thoughts in and try to act coy

Hurt by many, understood by few
The immense amount of radiance that no one knew

Armed with her canvas it’s her turn to speak
Turning the angels mute she makes them meek
Guarding her heart and her soul from all
The sadness and darkness makes her feel really tall

Hurt by many, understood by few
The immense amount of radiance that no one knew

Her light has flickered and all burnt out
She taught us all what life and love is about
One day the world will say they knew her then
But knowing her is knowing you never did
Track Name: It's Complicated
It started out so innocently
What turned out to be more than a fling
Sneaking a peak out of the corner of my eye
A quaint little secret best left to hide

Running, screaming, hiding, lying
Jumping, bleeding, hoping, dying

Is this the headline for me, It’s complicated
Unconscious romantic dream, It’s complicated
Fairy tale dust all over me ,It’s complicated
Is this the finale, It’s complicated

Anxiously waiting and sitting patiently
A tireless act in futility
A year has gone but what’s left for me
Enough is enough where is your mercy
Track Name: Anxious Excuse
A sinner lost and blind
How can I see
The pain that I caused you
It falls on me
One more laugh and one more cry to savor
Try to make another memory
Regrets are shutting down my emotions
Not a thing left for me

Drowning in the mess we made
Piecing all of the decay

Where were you when I was sad and lonely
Now that your gone
Holding on to thoughts of forever
Now forever is gone

It tore me up inside
Too bruised to try and hide
Tried to fix a ego
Hurt soul to hide
Yelled and fought and kicked and screamed and cried out
Another round of sorry could not win out
All the mess and pain and sorrow
Sucked away the hopes of tomorrow
Track Name: Ghost of You and I
I’ve found the love, that I had with you
Wasn’t so rosie, wasn’t so blue

I’ve discovered, that being alone
Isn't as lonely, then being with you

All of the madness, has lasted for years
Smoldering ashes, flashbacks and tears

Come follow me, don’t follow me here
Don’t worry soon, we’ll be strangers my dear

Hurry back home and hurry back to me
A cold summer night with nowhere else to be
So many reasons to say goodbye
But not one for you to stay the night

She said the night was meant for u and I
don’t worry babe this is will end in time
Try as I must and try to get by
In the end it won’t be alright

Don’t worry babe Don’t cry tonight
It’s time to catch your red eye flight
I tried to win and I tried to fight
I’m chasing the ghost of you and I
