about

Euphoric Indie Pop / Alt-Country break up album about addiction and resilience. Angelic vocals (like Sinead O'Connor / St. Vincent) woven with 1970s Country, and 1990s Alternative; Olivia Newton-John meets Beck. Hard next to soft; ugly to beautiful.

Track Name: Power of Love
Verse 1:
I make my point I don’t kiss you goodbye when I leave for work in the morning. Oh yeah. It hurts so much by the end of the day my mind erases your lies and you’re back in the light again

and then I throw my arms around you and say I’m sorry,
but you knew that you were the one who was wrong,
yet you accept my apology
This is how I disrespect myself

CHORUS:
then I felt the power of love giving me strength,
I had to love you more than me & you
and now I trust the power of love
I knew I had to break it off with you
It was the hardest thing to do
because it leaves me without you

Verse 2:
Hurry on. Don’t look back, maybe reunite someday.
Oh, what a fool I am. I haven’t been here in a long long time
forgotten how love can hurt and I'm lost in the world again.

The goal everyday is to hit rock bottom so you drink, drink, drink, drink and you drink but it doesn’t make anything better. It’s weird, you don’t need me, but I need you.

CHORUS
Track Name: I Wanna Be An Alcoholic
I'm the one who's supposed to take care of you
I stand up when the devil won't back down
I put everything on the line in the name of your sanity it was all for you but you destroy me when you say that I gave up on you
You refuse to see the truth
Guess I wasn't much to you

CHORUS:
I wanna be an alcoholic
an alcoholic so we can be together
I can’t do this sober
My love gets in the way
I wanna lose myself so completely
drown in alcohol
who needs to be sober
I'll just be with you and throw my life away so we can be together

I thought I was helping; life guarding just pushed you away Your lies were like water turning us into decay
and you struggled and panicked to keep yourself from drowning but the water so deep
released our grip didn't want you to go
dragged rivers looking for you
except the things I can not change
and when to get out of the way

CHORUS

You turned your back on me
You’re pushing me away
when I came between you and the bottle
You turned your back on me
and left your family
when I came between you and the bottle

CHORUS
Track Name: Euphoria
Take a drag
hold it in
blow it out
euphoria

music is beautiful
the world is beautiful
euphoria

Transcendent
Sense of wonder
Mental state
euphoria
Track Name: Getting High
I think you are playing me like a fool
I don’t see nothing but you losing your cool
know it sounds strange but I’d like to thank you for the lies. They lift me up to the sky and deserve better in my life.

CHORUS:
I’m getting higher and higher and higher Don’t need you honey your pants are on fire Sweat makes me look like I’m a crier You’re a hot-air balloon
I’m getting higher
I’m getting higher and higher and higher

You taught me about having respect for myself
Who knew all your crazy lies could be so much help I love life now that I have broken free from you
I am so proud of myself breaking up is hard to do

CHORUS

You build the fire and I’ll be the flame I’ll rise from the flames
You build the fire and I’ll be the Flame I’ll rise from the flames
Like a phoenix from the flames

CHORUS
Track Name: Top Of The World
Such a feelin's comin' over me
There is wonder in most every thing I see
Not a cloud in the sky, got the sun in my eyes And I won't be surprised if it's a dream

Everything I want the world to be
Is now comin' true especially for me
And the reason is clear, it's because you are here You're the nearest thing to Heaven that I've seen

CHORUS:
I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around Your love's put me at the top of the world

Somethin' in the wind has learned my name
And it's tellin' me that things are not the same
In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze There's a pleasin' sense of happiness for me

There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope that I will find
That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me All I need will be mine if you are here

CHORUS 2Xs
