Track Name: Backseat
BACKSEAT

Sittin in the backseat of my friend's car
listening to the radio playing a loud guitar
Nobody's talking everybody's breathing clean mountain air
blowing through my hair without a care

perfect moment I realize
we're young and headstrong
sittin next to the one I love
right where I belong

It's summer and i'm away from home
I'm feeling my freedom and I'm not alone
I look out the window and we're racing that river
Embracing our youth with a shiver

It's that perfect moment when I realize
we're young and headstrong
sittin next to the one I love
nothin can go wrong

This is the first time I'm feeling true love
I wonder if it's gonna stay
What if I hold on too tight
Will I chase this magic away

Sittin in the backseat of my friend's car
listening to the radio playing a loud guitar
Nobody's talking everybody's breathing clean mountain air
blowing through my hair without a care

perfect moment I realize
we're young and headstrong
sittin next to the one I love
right where I belong
nothing can go wrong
Track Name: Case of Cassettes
CASE OF CASSETTES

When i was five i might have been jealous of you
but it wouldn't stop me from being true to myself

and if i wanted to do what you do
then without a thought I would've been doing it too

something happened along the way
fear came and settled down to stay

if i could get back to that feeling when i was younger there'd be
pretty barrettes watching sunsets by the lakeside
box of trinkets a case of cassettes by my bedside

if i could only do that i'd say
then i wouldn't've let anyone get in my way

and if i were to get excited over you
then without a thought i would've been showing you

something happened along the way
fear came and settled down to stay

if i could get back to that feeling when i was younger there'd be
pretty barrettes watching sunsets by the lakeside
box of trinkets a case of cassettes by my bedside
a dripping popsicle riding my bicycle down the newly paved street
doin dance steps to michael listening for a cicada cycle in the summer heat
Track Name: All in the Stars
All In the Stars Andrea Wright

My life is in limbo
We are not afraid to start a fight
I’m still happy with you friend or foe
I wanna fall in love, let go, be outta control

It’s all in the stars
It’s all in the stars
You can ask any questions you want
Look for a sign in any font
but you’re not gonna get the answers you want
because it’s all in the stars

I know I have put you through your paces
Sometimes I like the cart before the horse
As we stand as the crossroad my hand on your face
There goes my mind, scenarios, just empty space

Cause It’s all in the stars
It’s all in the stars
You can ask any questions you want
Look for a sign in any font
but you’re not gonna get the answers you want
because it’s all in the stars

Now I promise to go in n dig deep
Let my feelings rip me apart at the seams
I thought the power was showing nothing at all
but that’s the fear, I’ll let love guide my fall

It’s all in the stars
It’s all in the stars
You can ask any questions you want
Look for a sign in any font
but you’re not gonna get the answers you want
because it’s all in the stars
Track Name: Still I Want You to Know
STILL I WANT YOU TO KNOW

I came to you when you were sleeping
woke you up to say goodbye
I'll take the hurt the pain and the shame
but I'll leave before I have to lie

Still I want you, still I want you
Still I want you, still I want you to know
you, you were hands down
The best thing that happened to me

As you cup you head in your hands with pain from love
only I see your shooting star above
The time frame of life is only a sip
it’s a shame to waste the sound in your fingertips

Still I want you, still I want you
Still I want you, still I want you to know
you were hands down
The best thing that happened to me

I’m leaving your garden
the plentiful pleasures and smells
I’m takin it with me
on my primrose path to hell

Still I want you, still I want you
Still I want you, still I want you to know
you, you were hands down
The best thing that happened to me
Track Name: Riverside
RIVERSIDE

Moved uptown this fall to get out of my mind
my mind followed me here
Big city lights and riverside view
made me forget my fear

see the taillights on the highway
the planes they come and go
the traffic on the Washington Bridge
reminds me we're going places
creating our journey mostly i know i am not so alone

red and green buoy lights guide big freighters up and down
plowin through that current slow and steady
sirens and horns create an urgency of emergency
find the fire and be ready

see the taillights on the highway
the planes they come and go
the traffic of the Washington Bridge
reminds me we're going places
creating our journey mostly i know i am not so alone

New York night landscape keeps me alive
there is more out there to do
sit perfectly still in my little white box
Ready to emerge and join you

see the taillights on the highway
the planes they come and go
the traffic of the washington bridge
reminds me that we're going places
creating our journey mostly i know that i am not alone
Track Name: Speak Your Love
SPEAK YOUR LOVE

You may not know it but you're in my club
once you're there you better beware not to spill your cup
You may not know it but I am so very loyal
you may play around but like fresh cream one day you may spoil

Unlike family you gotta treat me preciously or you might find me walkin away
Unlike those bloodlines keep your arms tied behind
speak your love or you won't have a say

as time goes by my circles they narrow
I am the bullseye shot through the heart by your arrow
as time goes by I'm aware of my freedom
the only problem is it's you I have to get the key from

Unlike family you gotta treat me preciously or you might find me walkin away
Unlike those bloodlines keep your arms tied behind
speak your love or you won't have a say

You know that I care and you know I'd do anything for you
as long as you treat me right I will always be there for you

Unlike family you gotta treat me preciously or you might find me walkin away
Unlike those bloodlines that keep your arms tied behind
speak your love or you won't have a say
Track Name: My Love is Deeper
LOVE IS DEEPER

you are my mother and I am your daughter
we do not agree on anything
different styles different beliefs
different opinions and different griefs
I might not know you if i didn't look at your face and see myself

my love is deeper than the language that I use
my love is deeper than the harshest words I choose
just remember, don't be confused, i love you

we've been through some rough times, silence may ensue
inside there is pain and actions I soon rue
we talk it out, try to move on
but there are scars and some apologies are due

my love is deeper than the language that I use
my love is deeper than the harshest words I choose
just remember, don't be confused, i love you

I feel you always with me, forever in my heart
a love so strong and solid I know that you're there
even when we're apart

my love is deeper than the language that I use
my love is deeper than the harshest words I choose
just remember, don't be confused, i love you
Track Name: Motel
MOTEL

The motel sits beside the highway and she sits and watches the scene all day
cold pride wouldn't let her say goodbye, the town knows he left her high and dry

She thinks he may come back again one day
And like a prisoner in her own room she'll no longer have to stay

Rather stare and fantasize her own rescue
than admit the hurt and pain she'd been through
waitlist herself and she'll never lose

walks the town with her head held high she'll be right no matter til the day she dies.
As she pulls up her hair and she brushes her teeth thinking maybe tomorrow he'll come and bring me relief

She thinks he may come back again one day
And like a prisoner in her own room she'll no longer have to stay

Rather stare and fantasize her own rescue
than admit the hurt and pain she'd been through
waitlist herself and she'll never lose

The motel sits beside the highway and she sits and watches the scene all day
cold pride wouldn't let her say goodbye, the town knows he left her high and dry.
Track Name: Crystal Clear
Crystal Clear

I’m never gonna have you am I
Never gonna call you mine
We’re passing ships in the night
no hand in hand or eye to eye

The nicest thing to say is there ain’t no more time
Baby just move along to the next one in line

now it’s all Crystal Clear
Crystal clear
I know where I have to go
I know what I gotta do
Cause we get the love we think, we get the love we get,
We get the love we think we deserve

I do admit I miss you
Cause I love you the way that I do
I always had two feet in
But you’ll never be my next of kin

The nice thing to say is I aint got time
Just move along to the next one in line

now it’s all Crystal Clear
Crystal clear
I know where I have to go
I know what I gotta do
Cause we get the love we think, we get the love we get,
We get the love we think we deserve
