Track Name: Pollyanna
Underneath all of the smiles
Lies an emptiness that eats her alive
Masked by all the joy and the laughter
Is a voice screaming I'm not alright
Broken hearts and hospital visits
Make her play a game of charades
Open toes laying out on a green field
Eyes are closing, contact will fade
She tells them she's an optimist
And life is just so optimal
But mastered the art to lie
She puts her hand around me
Well maybe we should go
Girl raise your voice up high
Run run run
Till we're all out of breath
from the
Sun sun sun
Beating down on our neck
So
Look at the horizon
Quite the panorama
Don't you ever worry
Miss Pollyanna

Underneath all of the smiles
Lies an emptiness that eats her alive
Masked by all the joy and the laughter

Broken hearts and hospital visits

Open toes laying out on a green field
Eyes are closing, contact will fade
She tells them she's an optimist
And life is just so optimal
But mastered the art to lie
She puts her hand around me
Well maybe we should go
Girl raise your voice up high
Run run run
Till we're all out of breath

Track Name: Ivory
The clouds
Are made of ivory
My eyes
The colors they can
See
Oh darling,
Life's a fantasy
But can't
You stay here
Right next to me
Right next to me
C'mon C'mon
I just wanna come home
(C'mon C'mon)
(I just wanna)
Lay next to you
And all of the things that I
Know
C'mon C'mon
I'm afraid of the unknown
(C'mon C'mon)
(I'm afraid of the unknown)
It holds all the things
That I hate
The most
The most
At night
I hold your hand and walk
It's cold
But I don't wanna
Stop
I know
I know
We're bound by the clock
But can't
You stay here
Right next to me
Right next to me
C'mon C'mon
I just wanna come home
(C'mon C'mon)
(I just wanna)
Lay next to you
And all of the things that I
Know
C'mon C'mon
I'm afraid of the unknown
(C'mon C'mon)
(I'm afraid of the unknown)
It holds all the things
That I hate
The most
The most
Track Name: Half Right
In the brand new summer light
On the edge of holiday
An ending was in sight
All my friends had gone away
Whoever said true love was dead was
Half right
I should know
I've been down that road
once or twice
but that was years ago
And I'm trying
To tell myself I've changed
I've learned a whole lot more
What difference does it make
What was this past year for
So I was homeward bound
But there was nothing there for me
The change it was profoound
A past life now a mystery
Whoever said true love was dead was
Half right
I should know
I've been down that road
once or twice
but that was years ago
And I'm trying
To tell myself I've changed
I've learned a whole lot more
What difference does it make
What was this past year for
It's not all for nothing still I'm stressing myself out
I think I'll take a timeout
