LYRICS

FROM THE FORTHCOMING EP


RUNNING WITH SCISSORS

She took off at age three like a bat outta hell
Mama thought she was the quiet type but you can never tell
Hand me downs and dads tee shirts
But somehow she could make it work in this life

Daddy said no but mama said yes
She got enough permission to wear that prom dress
You can go out tonight but finish your food
And yes you do have a curfew
But life ain't all about time and dinner
She's running with scissors
OoOoOo
She's running with scissors
OoOoOo

Four years of freedom she got her degree
Now its time to work for the family's company
Settled into what seems right
She's just trying to find her place in this life

Daddy said no but mama said yes
She got enough permission to wear that prom dress
You can go out tonight but finish your food
And yes you do have a curfew
But life ain't all about time and dinner
She's running with scissors
OoOoOo
She's running with scissors
OoOoOo

Twenty five she's found her path
She won't ever forget her past

Daddy said no but mama said yes
She got enough permission to wear that prom dress
You can go out tonight but finish your food
And yes you do have a curfew
but life ain't all about time and dinner
She's running with scissors
OoOoOo
She's running with scissors
OoOoOo

WATCH THE SMOKE

Bent and broken
Struck and stolen
Rubble that no one could recognize
Pieces shifted
Warped and twisted
That’s how you left me, burnt out, paralyzed
We moved so fast we didn’t see the signs
In a wreck like this nobody makes it out alive

What was a flame, became a blaze that’s burning this whole thing down
Fed this fire memories that weren’t worth keeping around and
Now, this cigarette’s almost burnt out, but I still wanna stay
And Watch the smoke blow away, watch the smoke blow away

Picture perfect
Worn but worth it
Everybody wanted what we had
But this illusion
Can cause delusion
Cause even I thought we were gonna last
I was in too deep and you let me fall
Scarred and scathed, we pushed full force into that wall

What was a flame, became a blaze that’s burning this whole thing down
Fed this fire memories that weren’t worth keeping around and
Now, this cigarette’s almost burnt out, but I still wanna stay
And Watch the smoke blow away, watch the smoke blow away

Embers, ashes
When love, crashes

What was a flame, became a blaze that’s burning this whole thing down
Fed this fire memories that weren’t worth keeping around and
Now, this cigarette’s almost burnt out, but I still wanna stay
And Watch the smoke blow away, watch the smoke blow away

CALL IT LIKE IT IS

Used to know what you were thinking bout'
But I don't know what you're thinking now
Sitting on the couch
How can I live with all this doubt
About you, still have her number in your phone
Even though you said, that was over
And I don't know,
Baby how can you stay when you only wanna go
We probably shoulda called it
Baby like we saw it
But I won't quit, I want this, 
I want you to be who I end up with

You are meant to be
In love with a girl like me
Even though they're saying
Call it like it is just, call it like it is
I want this to last
And I know I'm digging in the past
Baby don't tell me
Call it like it is just, call it like it is

Wish we could turn the clock and reset time
Find a better way to hit rewind
Back to you and I
And back to the days that I knew you were mine
Baby when did our love get so hard
Used to be close, now you're so far
You tore apart, my heart, but that don't mean we can't restart cause

You are meant to be
In love with a girl like me
Even though they're saying
Call it like it is just, call it like it is
I want this to last
And I know I'm digging in the past
Baby don't tell me

Goodbye feels right
When you're already gone

I want you to be
In love with a girl like me
Even though they're saying
Guess you aren't mean to be
In love with a girl like me
Yeah everybody's saying
Call it like it is just, call it like it is

We can't make this last
So I'm done digging in the past
Baby I'm gonna

Call it like it is just, call it like it is

LAZY DAYS

Oh ooh oh - Oh ooh Oh

Let's go Let's go find a hiding place
You know we both need a change of pace
Pack for a weekend getaway
Come on baby what do ya say, what do ya say?

I'm ready for a beach side bungalow
Campfire burnin' low
I just wanna take it slow
You know I'm waiting for some sunshine on my face
Late night summer haze
Slow and steady wins the race
You know I'm ready babe for some lazy days

Oh ooh oh - Oh ooh Oh

Let's go Let's go we can leave tonight
Jump in the car, hop a redeye flight
Wake up somewhere let the days roll by
Baby does that sound alright, sound alright?

I'm ready for a beach side bungalow
Campfire burnin' low
I just wanna take it slow
You know I'm waiting for some sunshine on my face
Late night summer haze
Slow and steady wins the race
You know I'm ready babe for some lazy days

Let's hit the sand, get a cold drink in our hands
No need to watch the clock, we'll be watching the sunset from the dock

Oh ooh oh - Oh ooh Oh

Yeah you know I got a feelin' we ain't ever leavin'
Waters gleamin' sun is beamin'
Give me just one reason

I'm sittin' by a beach side bungalow
Campfires burnin' low
We're takin' it slow
Got a little too much sunshine on my face
Late night summer haze
I cant complain
We've won our race
I gotcha babe
I love these lazy days

Oh ooh oh - Oh ooh Oh
These lazy days

WILDFLOWER

You picked me a wildflower
You said I, I was the one
So here I am, a wildflower
Sitting here rising and setting with the sun

My roots are as strong as the petals that lay at your feet
So what are you going to do with these pieces of me?
I'm not a common roadside weed
won’t be where you want me to be...

Cause you see I’m a wildflower
I’ve lived through stormy weather I’ve lived through it all
You can’t fool me, cause I’m still standing
I might be a crazy daisy but I'll never fall

My roots are as strong as the petals that lay at your feet
So what are you going to do with these pieces of me
I'm not a common roadside weed
Won’t be where you want me to be

Oh ooh oh - Oh ooh Oh

Oh ooh oh - Oh ooh Oh

Ooh - Ooh
If I’m truly the one that you need
Then I'll be where you want me to be

Free, like wildflowers
You and me, just begun
