Track Name: Ashes
Well I planted a garden in your backyard
Everyday I loved it more
And I gave it everything I had to give
Never asking myself what for
I prayed it wouldn't wither and waste away
All your flowers die these days

So won't you lay me in the garden if I must go
Let my sins melt away like fire in the snow
Should my heart break leave me there I've got to know
They say from ashes, flowers grow

Then I planted a garden of my own
I didn't see it as fancy or fine
But I gave it everything I had to give
Good or bad well, I knew it was mine
I was sure that it would wither and waste away
All my flowers are fine these days


So won't you lay me in the garden if I must go
Let my sins melt away like fire in the snow
Should my heart break leave me there I've got to know
They say from ashes, flowers grow

I need to know that if I break down
If I gave in
If I made a sound
If I break apart
If I rise above
I need to know

So won't you lay me in the garden if I must go
Let my sins melt away like fire in the snow
Should my heart break leave me there I've got to know
They say from ashes, flowers grow
From ashes, flowers grow
From ashes, flowers grow
Track Name: Waiting For Me
I think I'll wait another day until I know what I might say
When I can see the world as something new
'Cause I've been stuck here in this rut
I've got some ties I have to cut so I can see another point of view

There's nothing wrong with these old boots or where they'er standin'
It's just a walk across the map that they'er demanding

There are wise old faces
Wide open spaces
Brand new places to see
There are roads untraveled
Puzzles to unravel

I'll take a bus or car or train to see the great wide open plains
From Appalachia to the deep blue sea
Or I could just lay here in this grass and wait for life to drift on past
And dream away a dream that won't come true

There's nothing wrong with these old boots or where they'er standin'
It's just a walk across the map that they'er demanding

There are wise old faces
Wide open spaces
Brand new places to see
There are roads untraveled
Puzzles to unravel

There are wise old faces
Wide open spaces
Brand new places to see
There are roads untraveled
Puzzles to unravel
Stories to baffle a small town girl like me

There are wise old faces
Wide open spaces
Brand new places to see
There are roads untraveled
Puzzles to unravel
And all of them are waiting for me
Track Name: Coming To See You
I found out today
I'm coming to see you soon
But I don't know what I will find
When I stand in your light
And I rest in your hallowed room
I don't know how it will feel
And I don't know how I'll arrive

It could be a car crash
Could be a train wreck
It could be an airplane touching down

I decided today
I'm coming to be with you
But it may not be as they say
Because maybe they'er wrong
Fate is a funny, fickle thing
I don't know how it will feel
And I don't know how I'll arrive

It could be a car crash
Could be a train wreck
It could be a hurricane blowing through town
It could be a car crash
Could be a train wreck
It could be an airplane falling from the sky

Or maybe they'er right, maybe I'm stale
Maybe this body of mine is the final betrayal
Maybe they'll dance, maybe they'll cry
But they'll never know I was secretly smiling...

I don't know how it will feel
And I don't know how I'll arrive

It could be a car crash
Could be a train wreck
It could be a lost lonely soul with a gun
It could be a car crash
Could be a train wreck
It could be an airplane touching down
From the sky
But it'll be you and I
Track Name: Unglued
Save it for your friends the bitter end could be soon
And I'd save you if I could it does no good to please you

I'm on file, in denial, left unriled at your wounds
I'm unstable at your table
Barely able to unglue

Have your little fun don't come undone 'till I do
And I say this as a friend
Your little trend could eat you

I'm on file, in denial, left unriled at your wounds
I'm unstable at your table
Barely able to unglue

And I should have sympathy
But you make it hard
You're so in style
Still I'm always out of fashion

I'm on file, in denial, left unriled at your wounds
I'm unstable at your table
Barely able to unglue
Track Name: The Real Me
I can see there's no one listening
I'll just scream inside my head
But I can see where something's missing

Now I profess
You're the mess
Don't come in 'till you're undressed
And I can see what you've been eating &
What's been eating you

You find it all strangely euphoric
That I just eat what I've been fed
But I find your love too high caloric

Now I profess
You're the mess
Don't come in 'till you're undressed
Don't come in 'till I can see it for myself
Even a promise has a shelf-life
Don't be confused if you hit land mines
At least with my bombs you can hear the ticking

You find it all strangely attractive
If I could scream inside your head
You'd see our love's radioactive

Now I confess
I'm the mess
Don't come in 'cause I'm undressed
And you might see what you've been stealing
When you're unpeeling me
And revealing
The real me
