about

I've waited a very long time to hear my music like this. I cannot put into words how much I love this album for the story it tells, what it stands for, and the hard work many people put into it.
For that, I cannot thank you all enough.

One thing that sets this album apart is that it represents me and so many others who connected with my music and collaborated with me in making it what it is now.

Track Name: Introduction
I've waited so long, to sing the world my song
To show this heart is strong, once more
No longer a slave to a heart so lost, I find
I'm one step closer to the rest of my life
Walking through the door before me
I can say, I know I will be, alright
And it's time, to let me go
Track Name: Let Me Go
Every night I’m sleeping next to the chains I adore
And every time I’m thinking about how I want so much more
And I’m tired of pretending that I’m happy when I’m not
And I’m tired of convincing myself it will get better when it wont
I don’t want to be in between my life my dreams and you
I don’t want to be in between living and loving you
Let me go, turn over forget where I lay
Let me go, I promise it wont hurt one day
Let me go, close your eyes and I’ll slip away
What we have is great, but it isn’t enough, its not enough
And I can’t ask for changes when I know
You give me all of your love
So how much time must pass by before
I find the strength to say goodbye
I can’t lie and I wont be blind to the emptiness I feel inside
Chorus
I knew I would have to choose what I lose what I lose one day
Losing you was losing a part of me that I can never replace
Chorus
Track Name: The Door
Its not too late to try to get up and dance again
In fact I think its time I hold out my hand
And I’d like to say I tried
When I threw myself through your front door
The first in a very long time
I found the door I was looking for
And its time something turns out right
Its time I find myself in your eyes
Time something turns out right
And its you its you so wont you be mine already
Its not too late to stand still let music say everything
In fact I find a thrill that we can say nothing at all
And I’d like to say that I knew
When you told me I was colorful
But I didn’t have a clue
That I’d feel colorful when I'm with you
Chorus
I know you wont believe me
When I tell you everything’s fine
But listen to me when I say
You are perfect in so many ways
Doesn’t matter what anyone says
‘Cause I think its time you be mine
I think its time you be mine
I think time you be mine
Chorus
Track Name: Wedding Gift
I’ve been stumbling through my life
For the last year or two I’ve been trying to survive
Nothing’s really change I'm still all over the place
But when I fall I find I tend to aim
I’ve been tripping tripping all over myself you see
I’d rather be crazy crazy than not be anything
And you just wait for when you see my face
On a CD case did it without you
And one day you’ll know you let the wrong girl go
When you hear me on the radio I did it without you
Now I cant say you’re wrong
All I know is she’s old enough to be my mom
And everything has changed you lost your dreams
You’re settling babe I know who you are
And this ain’t you
I'm glad you fell for fell for someone you thing is right
But don’t come running running when I'm in the spotlight
Chorus
I cant say I'm angry ‘cause I know in my heart I'm not
And I cant say I’m happy when I had him he meant a lot
But thank you for taking one for the team
‘Cause I’d rather it be you be you than it be me
So take the world I left behind
Chorus
I can’t wait for when I see your face on a backyard stage
You did it without me
Track Name: So Lost
What do you want from me
‘Cause I don’t know how to please you anymore
What is it that you need I cant seem to read
You anymore
And what do you hold when all that you held is gone for good
And what do you say when all that’s been said and done
Is not enough
I don’t know what to do anymore
I'm so lost I'm so lost in this world
And I don’t know what to say anymore
I'm so lost I'm so lost in this world
What do you think of me if all that you think of is yourself
And how would you feel if all that you felt feels like nothing
Why do we try tryings what got us to this place
And who do we hate when the one that you love you have to thank
Chorus
I'm falling apart again lifes not the way I planned
I'm falling in your arms again but you missed
Now I’ve hit the floor once again
Chorus
I'm so lost I'm so lost
I don’t know what to do anymore
I'm so lost I'm so lost in this world
Track Name: That Girl
Its girls’ night out in the city and you know
Girls they come in all varieties
You’ve got the girls who are all talk
You’ve got the girls who do the walk
You’ve got the girls who are convinced
They’re everything you’re not
So watch out because this girl
She’s so famous everyone knows her
They call her that girl she’s acting like a toy
For her own self-appeasement
She's that girl and she hides behind the paint on her face
She's the essence of falsified vanity
That girl wears the need for attention
Like its going out of fashion she's that girl oh
In the club her favorite song is on replay
She's getting dirty with some guy with her Brittney on display
She's dancing to the beat of insecurity
She’s bending over backwards for her low self-esteem
They call her that girl she’s starring down the room
With her poor sense of dignity
Chorus
You can see the lack of self-respect
Dripping from her halter dress
The one that’s meant to be a shirt
Damn this girls a piece of work
And every ones starring ‘cause starrings enough
They will look but they wont touch that girl
Chorus
Track Name: One Step Closer
I can’t say that there aren’t days
I want someone there to help
Make me happy make it easy for me
And I felt pain and I can say
I’m glad I feel something
‘Cause without rain we’d never see the spring
A leap of faith is all it takes to see
Everything happens for a reason
Everything has it’s own time
Go ahead and have your heart back
I’m not leaving without mine
We don’t have to break to know it was real
We don’t have to make mountains from hills
This is only one of many to come
We’re one step closer to love
I can’t lie that there aren’t times
I’m glad we put the work in
Its good to work ‘til it turns to hurt and tears
Love is blind and we lose sight
That greater love self-denies
Because its true we let each other loose
Fire burns to pave the path for new
Chorus
We’re not failing if we’re moving towards a better day
And its not easy to know when tryings turned to pain
Let the good be great this masterpiece we made
Loving you has taught me how to love the right way
Everything happens for a reason
Everything has its own time
Please let me have my heart back
I can’t let you leave with mine
You don’t doubt ‘cause I felt it too
When I walked out I did it for you
I love you enough to let you move on
You’re one step closer to love
Chorus
Track Name: Heartbreaker
She sees you staring her down
From across the room you like to play with fire you do
You think you got it figured out
But she’s sipping on a drink from the last fool or two yeah
She’s tearing up the town
In her velvet dress and her black studded shoes
She sees every move you make like a hawk to her prey
Guarantee she won’t remember your name
‘Cause she’s a heartbreaker
She’s a heartbreaker and they’ll never learn
They’ll never keep her ‘cause she’s unconcerned
If you’re wrong you’re right you’re sweet you’re kind
You’re rich you’re poor or you’re just a boy
She don’t care
You got your head held high
With your confidence your ignorance your arrogant smile
You’re feeling lucky tonight
As if lady luck could save you from a black widow’s bite
No she don’t give a damn
She’s going to walk all over you in those black studded shoes
She sees every move you make like a hawk to her prey
Guarantee you will remember her name
Chorus
There’s something about her no one figures
Take no prisoners and show no mercy show no mercy no
There’s something about her she’s a trickster
Don’t be fooled by her figure no she’s a monster inside
Chorus
Track Name: Second Best
I can’t look in the mirror without feeling second best
I’m trying not to turn my head how did it come to this
I’m trying to move on Not to shed a tear
But if you want redemption no you’re not welcome here
‘Cause yeah it hurts and yeah I know
That I’m scared to be alone
Now that I see that you weren’t for me
Its so easy to say that I’d rather it be this way
Its what you do when you love someone
See only good and not the wrong they’ve done
But oh babe you see what you took away
They were the only things keeping me afraid
Chorus
It was fun it was great I learned to love what risks to take
And every day you start to fade a little more
It didn’t make sense but now I see our cadence of harmony
I knew our sun would set eventually
Chorus
I can’t look in the mirror without feeling second best
Track Name: We Will Be (For One Billion Women)
I never knew I was standing next to you
For reasons bigger than we
And all the pain finally showed its face
When it moved through the room
Eyes are opened hearts are touched
We stand for something bigger than us
I believe I believe
You will be safe one day
You will never have to run again
You will be loved one day
The way you know you should
You will be you will be
A light in this world we’re in
You will be you will be
A reason to fight for an end
An end to tears an end to running
An end to fears of never know
If you’re alone
And end to fight your own mistrust
To never finding a reason to love again
And again and again again
You’ve been strong you’ve been hurt
And after it all you stand for your worth
For our worth
Chorus
You are here today reminding us we’re here to stay
The war is in the words you say
Oh the future’s ours to take its ours to take
This fights for you its for you
Chorus
Track Name: Slave
The sun went down it never came up again
And I don’t know how but something tells me that I’m dead
Nothing I say takes the pain from your face
I’m destined to watch you grow old in this place
Didn’t I tell you it wont hurt one day
Didn’t I tell you I would always stay
A slave in this house I can’t stay if I'm already locked out
Bound to this place no where to go but by God I cannot stay
I don’t know where to go what to do now
I'm frozen in place I guess that its time to accept my fate
As I watch you wither away
Now I stay awake everyday as I watch myself fade away
In your eyes in this house nothing but memories remain
So let them go make room for others to grow
Just let me go I'm sorry I left you alone
Chorus
I'm sorry I told you I left you ‘cause you weren’t enough
‘Cause I couldn’t watch you spend your life trying to sew me up
‘Cause you would’ve tried stood by my side
And I would have been the reason why the reason why
We are slaves in this house
Chorus
Track Name: Let Me Go (Acoustic Live)
Every night I’m sleeping next to the chains I adore
And every time I’m thinking about how I want so much more
And I’m tired of pretending that I’m happy when I’m not
And I’m tired of convincing myself it will get better when it wont
I don’t want to be in between my life my dreams and you
I don’t want to be in between living and loving you
Let me go, turn over forget where I lay
Let me go, I promise it wont hurt one day
Let me go, close your eyes and I’ll slip away
What we have is great, but it isn’t enough, its not enough
And I can’t ask for changes when I know
You give me all of your love
So how much time must pass by before
I find the strength to say goodbye
I can’t lie and I wont be blind to the emptiness I feel inside
Chorus
I knew I would have to choose what I lose what I lose one day
Losing you was losing a part of me that I can never replace
Chorus
