GREAT DIVIDE
(Anna Paddock)

Slow like a bow on a string
Fast like a wildfire spreading
Light as air beneath a wing
But heavy with passion
I was your violin
You were my oxygen
And you gave me wings
And I made you fly, didn't I?

So can you just tell me, how was I so misled?
Or can you just tell me what was going through your head?

Cause to me it was so obvious
You were standing on a bridge
And I was waving you across
But you wouldn't listen
And it's too late now
You'll stay on your side, me on mine
It's the great divide

Hot like a touch of sunlight
But cold like a sleepless night
Soft as a bird in flight
But it got real loud when we'd fight
I was your jack of spades
You were my slow play
But you hid the ace
And you hid the truth, didn't you?

Cause to me it was so obvious
You were standing on a bridge
And I was waving you across
But you wouldn't listen
And it's too late now
You'll stay on your side, me on mine
It's the great divide

We were slow like a bow on a string
And we were fast like a wildfire spreading
And we were soft like a bird in flight
And I thought that we'd make it right
We'd make it right

Cause to me it was so obvious
You were standing on a bridge
And I was waving you across
But you wouldn't listen
And it's too late now
You'll stay on your side, me on mine
It's the great divide

 

HUSH
(Anna Paddock)

Hush, I've heard enough
You're like a disease and I don't need this
Hush, say no more
You come like a thief and I don't need you

People say we'll fix your head
Just swallow this pill
It'll get easier
I tell myself, get out of bed
You cannot be ill
But all I hear is

Voices, voices
I hear voices, voices, voices
Closing me in

Hush, don't rear your head
You're like a disease beginning to spread
Hush, you've made your point
You come like a thief to kill and destroy

And people say we'll fix your head
Just swallow this pill
Statistics say, you're one in ten
But all I hear is

Voices, voices
Voices, voices, voices
Closing me in
God I can't think when I hear
Voices, voices, voices
Closing me in

Hush, it's time you go
You're like a disease killing my soul
Hush, you've said too much
You come like a thief and you've taken enough

 

JUST LIKE OUR LOVE
(Anna Paddock & Jessica Pharaoh)

This broken down house has weathered many storms
Just like our love
It kept me warm
When the wind was never-ending and the downpour didn't stop
Just like our love
I never felt a drop

Now it's broken down beams and it doesn't hold its form
And only in my dreams does it hide me from the storm

Just like our love
It wasn't built to last

And I keep coming back to these scattered remains
But just like our love
It's all in vain

Cause it's broken down dreams and it doesn't hold it's form
And only in my dreams does it hide me

Just like our love
It wasn't built to last

So should I just let it go
Let the last piece fall?
No one will know it was ever here at all
Or should I just walk away
Let it all cave in
Knowing I may never see you again?

In one final effort I hide beneath its skeleton shell
Just like our love
I'm as stubborn as hell

Just like our love
It wasn't built to last

 

READY TO BE MY MAN
(Patrick Anderson & Anna Paddock)

I'm not ready to say I love you
I'm not ready to make big plans
I'm not ready to keep walking hand in hand
If you're not ready to be my man

Cause you're not ready to say forever
You're not ready to take a stand
Though your words drip like honey, don't you understand
That you're not ready to be my man?
You're not ready to be my man

I'm so tired of everyone leaving
I turn around, it's someone new
Still I won't go begging and pleading with you

It's hard enough to get discovered
With my homemade record and handful of fans
Everyone is testing the waters
Short runs and one night stands
No I'd rather hold out on my own as long as I can
If you're not ready to be my man

 

ADDICTED
(Anna Paddock)

She can't seem to stop loving him
But he can't seem to quit
She always finds a way to give him one more opportunity
And he always takes it

She never leaves
All the memories block her way
And she believes something still can change

But he goes through the motions
He's addicted
And he doesn't even know what he's doing anymore
And she goes through the whole thing with him
Should she leave him or stay?

She won't last much longer
But he assures her it's over
She's heard it all before
But still she is persuaded by the hope that his words offer

But he goes through the motions
He's addicted
And he doesn't even know what he's doing anymore
And she goes through the whole thing with him
Should she leave him or stay?
Should she leave him or believe him when he says

I'll make it right this time
You know I love you
I just got caught in another lie?
But that's what you said last time
How can I trust you?
Don't you know it kills me every night?

You go through the motions
You're addicted
And you don't even know what you're doing anymore
And I go through the whole thing with you
Should I leave you or stay?

She can't seem to stop loving him
But he can't seem to quit

 

TO GET WHAT YOU WANT
(Patrick Anderson)

To get what you want
Whatever you need
In the hour of temptation
You listen to me
You have no choice, no freedom, no time
God is a criminal, you are the crime

The first step is hard
And frightening as hell
You tremble like Adam
On the morning man fell
But time will wrap a melody around all your wrongs
The minor chords in a beautiful song

'Til nothing compares
And anything goes
Now heaven is haunted
And God is a ghost
And every new lover feels like a rebirth
And you can't get enough of this bountiful earth

Then one day you stop
Dead in your tracks
You reel for a moment
The criminal's back
And you stare at the blood on his hands and his feet
But he won't look away until your eyes meet
