Walking Blindly

Written by Leah West

VERSE
My feet run through suburbia
Trying to rid me of absurd ideas
Quiet, quiet, quiet I try to find
But maybe it’s the calm before the storm
When all the desperate housewives go to war

CHORUS
Can you feel me?
‘Cause I’m walking blindly into the storm
Can you feel me?
‘Cause I’m walking blindly into the storm
Into the storm, Into the storm

VERSE
Psychosomatic tendencies
A symptom we’re all ill at ease
And there’s a strange catharsis in cleaning the garage
And the boys are taught to be well-oiled machines
But there’s a restless ticking time bomb underneath

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
Consume it up to fill the void
We’re skeptical ‘til paranoid
But Golden Handcuffs keep us in
This quiet desperation
A sundial in the moonlight
We’re all off course with blinded sight
Anger stirs with no outlet
Condemned to repeat all the steps
We hover with no safety net
The bleeding comes, the bleeding lets

Repeat CHORUS

I Want You

Written by Leah West & Ryan Donn

VERSE - Am, F
Let’s get back, to where we began,
Back on track, we've been blowing in the wind
Set sail without an anchor, watched the shoreline fade
Let’s return and find our love again

CHORUS - G, F
‘Cause I want you (and nobody else)
It’s got to be you
Let’s give it a chance
Let’s give it a chance

VERSE - Am, F
Do you remember when, Candles lit our way
On a snowy new years eve, at the cabin by the lake
We kindled a connection, We thought sealed our fate,
We forgot to feed the fire, now it’s smothered in the rain

CHORUS - G, F
But I want you (and nobody else)
It’s got to be you

BRIDGE - Am, F
It's not thirst or hunger
It's something stronger
That draws me back tonight

Confessing my soul
Baring it all
Do you still want me in your life?

CHORUS - G, F
Yes I want you (and nobody else)
It’s got to be you (and nobody else)
Yes I want you (and nobody else)
It’s got to be you

Let’s give it a chance...

A Better Place

Written by Leah West

VERSE I
I know that this is for the best
Life ebbs and it flows, it wakes and it rests
Even though you took life’s hardest test
You always said that you were blessed

Winter’s snow takes the autumn’s colors away
I must admit my world’s been cold and gray
What do I do with this empty space?
Give me the strength to let your soul move on to a better place

VERSE II
In the night I cry your name out loud
Even though you float way above the clouds
I can hear you calling down
For me to move, move on now

But, letting go doesn’t mean that my heart didn’t break
Letting go doesn’t mean that my hands still don’t shake
Oh how I miss your warm embrace
Give me the strength to let your soul move on to a better place

BRIDGE
Walk towards the light
Walk towards the light
It’ll be alright

VERSE III
A photograph of your smiling face
Inspires me to live full each day
I picture you so full of grace
Give me the strength to let your soul move on to a better place
Give me the strength
Give me the strength to let your soul move on to a better place

Hard Rain

Written by Leah West

VERSE
I’m going down to walk that line
For years I rest my head in this prison of mine
This old heartache has metastasized
Into this rusty head and rendered me blind
There’s a mad sea rising in these eyes

CHORUS
Tonight, tonight a hard rain is gonna fall
And time will humble us all

VERSE
The cracks have opened wide, revealed their scars
When our skeletons emerge, they redefine who we are
A derailed train runs through your heart
The remedy outruns, outsmarts
Like trying to chase a shadow in the dark

CHORUS
Tonight, tonight a hard rain is gonna fall
And time will humble us all

Bridge
Il arrive parfois qu’en recherchant la perfection
nous détruisons quelque chose qui était déjà parfait

VERSE
Smoke signals rise in the winds of change
No one wants it all to be in vain
A wanderer for all eternity
Once you see, you’ll never be the same
Once you see, you’ll never be the same

Punch Drunk Lullaby

Written by Leah West

VERSE I
It’s been one of those days
When I’m lost in a maze
And I’m coming apart at the seams
And I’m so freaking tired
But on caffeine I’m wired
And worry will keep me from sleep

PRECHORUS
I’m too tired to even cry
So instead I’ll sing this punch drunk lullaby

VERSE II
It seems that there’s drama
Around every corner
Well, I’ve got enough of my own
But these thoughts they keep haunting me
What do you want I plead?
Why won’t you leave me alone?

PRECHORUS
I’m too tired to reason why
So instead I’ll sing this punch drunk lullaby

CHORUS
Oh Lovely, you’re getting sleepy

VERSE III
When I was a little girl
I thought that the world was where
Princes rescued the dame
But I figured out all the lies
And learned how to compromise
But I think that that is so how it is

PRECHORUS
But I’m too insane to give up this fight
But not insane enough to claim I’ve lost my mind
Perhaps it’s best I stick to singing lullabies

CHORUS
Oh Lovely, you’re getting sleepy

Sink Like A Stone

Written by Leah West

VERSE
Huddled in clothes in my humble abode
One block from Rue St Laurent
In this bustling town you can drown in the sound
Yet still be deaf to hear the words

We grow gardens of chaos eat junk to sustain us
Build walls to maintain the façade
Passion grows in my fist
How I long to be kissed
By a stranger who promises to be closer to God

CHORUS
Tell me how in a world full of 7 billion people
can I feel so alone
In the river of life most get carried away
But me, I sink like a stone

VERSE
I’m no heroine, they told you lies
Pulled a silky veil over your eyes
It’s become that the system it raises our children
Not a blessing, not a curse
But some have forgotten to ponder these problems
And I can’t decide which is worse

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
And we’re purging these emotions
What’s emerging is this notion
So we’re hoping and we’re praying
That tomorrow we’ll be saved

Repeat CHORUS

Kaleidoscope

Written by Leah West

VERSE
Ticker tape parade
The bright lights of Broadway
Café au lait
On a Sunday morning
Under a café awning

The future at our fingertips
Naïveté on our lips
Lean in for a kiss
After the perfect date

CHORUS
We were woven into the hope
Of this kaleidoscope

VERSE
Singing “Ninety-Nine Red Balloons”
Laughing hysterically in my living room
We danced all night that night under the light of the moon

CHORUS
We were woven into the hope
Of this kaleidoscope

BRIDGE
One day it all came to an end
I moved so far away, never saw you again
But I wonder if you wonder where I am

Breakdown
This nostalgia seems to find me
The memories live inside me

CHORUS
We were woven into the hope
Of this kaleidoscope
