about me

music and lyrics: a. witt
 
isn't it funny
i was so right about you all along
mmm hmmm
 
isn't it crazy
how much i wanted you to prove me wrong
la da da da
 
i wanna grind you into the floor
but you're not worth the scuff on my shoe
i wanna make you take a look in the mirror
but hey- enough about you
 
what about me
this is my voice now
spent too long letting you say it all
and i don't care how many ways you take down
everyone else cuz i'm standing tall
 
put it away cuz i'm done with your game
it's time for a new set of rules
you can't live without me? well this one's about me
and baby i'm over you
 
i bet you never once looked back at all the shit i took from you
i bet you never saw this comin wonder what you're gonna do
 
so sick of talkin bout your stupid life
so sick of hearin you got so little time
you're as deep as a sock and as true as a lie
yeah fuck your shit are you ready for mine?
 
(chor)
 
this one is not about a boy
this is about the void i left wide open
this one is almost like a gift
feels like a weight has lifted off my shoulders
 
and i don't want you missin me
don't need your sympathy
dont care how many things you left unspoken
go try your tricks out on some other bitch
not here to be your fix
cuz i'm not broken
 
what about me
this is my voice now
spent too long sayin nothin at all
and i won't shut up, no i like the sound
say what you want but i'm not gonna fall
 
put it away cuz i'm done with your game
from now on we play by my rules
you can't live without me? well this one's about me
and baby i'm over you


already gone

written by alicia witt & mike bradford - 2012
 
i'm not looking for
what you think i am
i should let you down gently
 
nothing i can do to lose my mind
you're too close to reaching
what i never want to find
 
you can look but you won't find me i'm
already gone
you can't tell i hide it well and i
keep moving on
i'm already gone
 
can't sit still and i
can't run fast enough
nothing's ever come easy
 
hard to hold the dam from breaking free
and all the lies i've left behind
come pouring out of me
 
you can look but you won't find me i'm
already gone
you can't tell i hide it well and i
keep moving on
i'm already gone
 
didn't know what we were getting into
no one ever does until it ends
 


anyway

music and lyrics by Alicia Witt and Matt Beckley 

i’m bruised again i wear it well the self inflicted tale they telli singed my hair i broke my nails you’d love me then if all else failed the night was long and dark and just another dagger to my trusti thrust it in until i bleed i wiped my point for you to see
and anyway it’s over now - nothing left to sayi don’t know why i don’t care how
 it’s over anyway
its broken in pieces
you got the space you needed
 too late to try just say goodbye its over anyway 

i fell so far i felt so small i shrank to not exist at alli beat me up till i was sure you gave me just what i deservedi woke up every day afraid my so called faith went up in flames still i believed in all your lies for the life of me i don’t know why
they got you wrong youre not that strong i don’t belong here
and anyway it’s over now - nothing left to sayi don’t know why i don’t care how
 it’s over anyway
its broken in pieces
you got the space you needed
 too late to try just say goodbye its over anyway 

you’ll say i’m self destructive - i constructed all this tragedy
go tell them all it’s all my fault - you’ll tell them i was crazy 


blind

written by alicia witt, jeff fiorello and matt beckley  - 2009
 
you keep waiting for me to come to my senses
waiting for the other shoe to fall
how can i walk, walk away from what we had
like it never never happened at all...
 
...this time gone by and i keep waiting for the words to say
but nothing's changed
 
nothing that a little living won't heal
nothing but a little love i don't feel
take it or leave it it's all i can say
made up my mind and i'm walking away
you keep waiting for me to see the light
but i've gone blind to you
i've gone blind to you, blind
 
you keep wonderin' what i've done to make this die
waiting for the other man to call
i could never break your heart and leave that way
like i never, never loved you at all...
 
....i know is i can see forever and it's come and gone
but nothing's wrong
 
nothing that a little living won't heal
nothing but a little love i don't feel
take it or leave it it's all i can say
made up my mind and i'm walking away
you keep waiting for me to see the light
but i've gone blind to you
i've gone blind to you, blind

saw the writing on the wall
before it was written
i knew it all felt wrong
even when it didn't
you don't know why i'm not cryin
as you're standing there about to leave
so sorry baby but i'm already free


blinkers

blinkers on wear em just the perfect size
so you're halfway gone but you never lose your mind
ride this out no coincidence at all
cuz it's all too loud no matter what it's called

hold on tight all you have to stay is cool
you can fold in five cuz the house is yours to lose
don't need sleep when you're feeding on a flame
and a smile so deep that it doesn't know its name

go on you got this one life to live
you gotta take up your hook and sail
let go you know the letdown
give it a chance why don't you to fail

laugh out loud in the face of the absurd
at the shape of sound that you never knew you heard
which came first the poem or the pen
yeah it all goes blurred when you're falling down again

go on you got this one life to live
you gotta take up your hook and sail
let go you know the letdown
give it a chance why don't you to fail

what if for once you see all you could've been is all that you're gonna be
why can't you stay this spellbound
give it a chance why don't you
to lead


christmas miracle

sleigh bells and snowflakes
and magic in the air
warm nights and cold days
and laughter everywhere

mistletoe i hang alone
and stockings filled with faith
turn my eyes to winter skies
and search them for a sleigh

cuz if i wish with all my heart
this time of year it might come true
hope with all i’ve got
that this will get to you

i don’t want gifts i’ve made my list
theres just one thing i need
a christmas miracle
to bring you home to me

i’ll tell you i love you
not only in my dreams 
we’ll fall asleep beneath the tree
like kids on christmas eve

i grew up so long ago
but truly i believe
santa knows the things we don’t
and so i’m asking please 

cuz if i wish with all my heart
this time of year it might come true
hope with all i’ve got
that this will get to you

i don’t want gifts i’ve made my list
theres just one thing i need
a christmas miracle
to bring you home to me

it isn’t peace on earth i know 
but i’m still asking please
a christmas miracle
to bring you home to me


consolation prize

music and lyrics: alicia witt – 2013
 
every now and then
i wonder how you’ve been in all this time
i wonder if you ever came around to
what went down and
 once in awhile i think of all the life we spent together
and i don’t even know your number anymore
 
looking back at all your quiet desperation
in retrospect now aren’t you glad i let you go
 
isn’t it nice to know that you’re not my consolation prize
doesn’t it feel like freedom breathin in and out now
isn’t it good to see all the love in someone else’s eyes
doesn’t it all make sense that you’re better off without me
oh, oh, whoa
oh, oh… whoa
 
i wonder if you kept the painting that i gave you
pretty sure she made you throw it out
that sucks i would have loved to have it back
i only brought it home for you because i loved it
all revisionary history aside i loved you too
 
so why am i the bad guy in your estimation
for being brave enough to say what we we both knew
 
isn’t it nice to know that you’re not my consolation prize
doesn’t it feel like freedom breathin in and out now
isn’t it good to see all the love in someone else’s eyes
doesn’t it all make sense that you’re better off without me
oh, oh, whoa
oh, oh… whoa
 
no grand intention
no pain to mention
   just too many days that fade to blue
and look how it came out perfect
for better would have been for worse if
i’d have been the one to settle  down that walk with you


down (feat. T.O.N.E.-z)


music by alicia witt, lyrics by alicia witt & T.O.N.E-z
 
Sick of the game and living in pain emotionally drained
The shame in our name breaking the chains
A life full of money and devious ways
The love in our heart is family bound
We all have grown up made a mark in this town
Promises made to keep us together
Material wealth enduring the weather
Been bustin' our guns stacking them funds
Bodies laid out decay in the sun
Enemies shook they're scared to approach
We ran the game never needed a coach
The time has come to break all the shackles
Blood is blood we're forever attached to
Tired of living this lawless life
Forever we're crows time to take flight
 
down with the guns and gutters
down with the clear blue sea
down where you call my number
no you won't ever find me
 
Doing this for myself no help when I move
Look into the mirror got something to prove
Nothing to lose I gave all I could
Beef a drama surrounding my hood
My siblings are crazy I love'm to death
But we're playing a game and pain is the ref
I'm changing the rules paid all my dues
Load up the whip and bounce on you fools
Ha been a dreamer since the cradle
Cooking some plans setting the table
Time for a feast get ready to grub
Wave to my fam throw them some love
I'm not really trying to hurt nobody
Clear out my path but don't try to stop me
 
down with the guns and gutters
down with the clear blue sea
down where you call my number
no you won't ever find me
 
down with the shame and shutters
down with the bloodstained stream
down with the bones and bluster
boy, you won't ever find me
 
Like I said before
Forever we're crows but we never dose or
Sleep on our toes cause poverty chose
To tackle our lives but we keep it G
Protecting our pride why
Cause this is the world that we live (in)
Never submit (in) times that we get in trouble
We flip the game reversing the pain
Never do it for fame
We do what we do  it is what it is
But I have a life that I'm trying to live
Bask in the sun take a deep breath
There's happiness out there I want what's left
 
down with the guns and gutters
down with the clear blue sea
down where you call my number
no you won't ever find me
 


earful

lie awake
my mistakes playing back in my head
every word that i wish i had said
if you were here you’d get an earful tonight

your fingers on my shoulder
did you mean it that way
is it my imagination are you feeling the same
if you were here you’d get an earful tonight
yeah if you were here you'd get an earful tonight

i would ask you if i’m on your mind
did the whole world stop when your eyes met mine
like a twenty second life time
it was a twenty second life time

did you feel the same deja vu
like a memory you never knew you knew
did you see it as it all flashed by
if you were here you’d get an earful (tonight)

Caught in thoughts
Getting lost
If you’re not on my page
Then i’m obsessed it’s a mess in my brain
Words on a phone, can’t read your tone, can’t decide
And I can’t unsee the secrets between the lines
Yeah if you were here you’d get an earful tonight

I would ask you if I’m on your mind
Did the whole world stop when your eyes met mine?
For a 20 second lifetime
a 20 second lifetime

Did you feel the same déjà vu?
like a memory you never knew you knew
Did you see it as it all flashed by
Yeah if you were here you’d get an earful

maybe I'm crazy making this up alone
but I just need to know if I'm right
what if the reason why i can’t let you go
is cuz you’re supposed to be in my life

I wanna tell you you’ve been on my mind
That the whole world stopped when your eyes met mine
For a 20 second lifetime
A 20 second lifetime

Did you feel the same déjà vu?
Feel your heart beat faster than you ever knew
Did you see it as it all flashed by
Yeah if you were here you'd get an earful tonight


fighting for crumbs

music and lyrics by Alicia Witt and Alex Solowitz, 2011

damn my intuition here it goes
wish i didn’t know the things i know
youre backing off from me
i saw it happening
the moment she came back to you
 
you never said so didn’t have to
that sinking feeling always knew  
and i don’t understand
you’re trying to hide it but you can’t  
no need to tell me that its true
 
looks like it’s time to walk away
looks like my moment here is done
your heart is broken in too many pieces
and i’m not fighting for crumbs
 
did you really think i wouldn’t notice
it hurts the most that you don’t know this
i hear what you don’t say
  i see it on your face
leaving out the truth is still a lie
 
you want me here in case she breaks your heart again
you keep your second place i only came to win


i hope it's me

music and lyrics by Alicia Witt – 2011

your life is like a movie your heart’s a thing of beauty
you spread your beats all over town
i don’t know how you do it   you make em all so stupidthey love you when you're not around 

i've been seeing something thru the cracks
will i catch you looking back 

when the crowd around you starts to make you lonely
when the traffic at your door is growing old
when you need a place to lay down your story when the only thing you wanna be is home
when you wanna wake up knowing who you're holding
the day the freedom stops feeling freewhen you're ready to give all of you to someonei hope its mei hope its me 

i’ll never let you see this i’ll keep your dirty secretsi’ll help you sweep the mess you make
but i can barely breathe some times i wonder if you see the kind
of everything i wanna say
and yeah you're chasing what you feel right now
but someday you may turn around 

when the crowd around you starts to make you lonely when the traffic at your door is growing old when you need a place to lay down your story when the only thing you wanna be is homewhen you wanna wake up knowing who you're holding
 the day the freedom stops feeling freewhen you're ready to give all of you to someonei hope its mei hope its me
you could make me something no one else has done
but someone just like you has never come 


i'm not ready for christmas

music and lyrics: alicia witt - 2012
 
another summer's gone
don't know where it went
i can't believe it's that time of year again
winter's closing in
some kind of messed up time
the calendar begins its race to
december 25
 
i'm not ready for christmas
don't need a gift list
don't give a shit
how many shopping days are left
this holiday season
give me one reason
i should believe it's ever gonna change and
why should i be merry
when every january
i come back so very broken hearted
i'm not ready for christmas
i think i'll skip this one and
santa i will see you next year
 
got my blue jeans on
no need for red and green
go rock your light up hat
i'm not tryna make a scene
it just occurs to me
the grinch was not so mean
he had a point or two
i think he'd've liked me
 
i'm not ready for christmas
not gonna listen
don't even ask me cuz i'm tellin you i'm not
unpackin my tinsel
puttin up mistle-
toe this year i'm gonna kiss it goodbye
and i don't wanna tree or
any company it's
never how i dream it
white or otherwise
i'm not ready for christmas
won't even miss this yule tide
peace on earth i'll see you next time
 
i'm done with wrapping boxes
buying things that no one wanted
trying on my own to save the day
while dad plays cards and bro reads verses
mom's in tears between the curses
i need a fucking holiday
 
i'm not ready for christmas
don't need a gift list
give me your stockings and i'll stuff em for ya
i'm not ready for sleigh bells
two months of carols
playing from galway bay to california
and i'm not makin nog
or dressing up the dog
you can keep your yule log
i'm still burned out
i'm not ready for christmas
i think i'll sit this out and
maybe i will see you next year


is this what you meant

music and lyrics by Alicia Witt, 2011

rushin through the world in your unmade bed
with your head on fire and your heart undressed
you can always tell when youre in my dreams

nothing but the clothes that you left remain
in a paper bag with a faded stain
you can always tell when i wipe you clean

aint no surprise you’d call me up today
aint no surprise i’m still the same

is this what you meant      is this what you said
that some day i might miss you when youre gone
is this what you saw        is this what you want
just to hear me say that i was wrong
isn’t this right         where i belong
     here on the floor    imploring you to change your mind                     
is this what you meant        is this what you meant
still no less the mess you left behind

Don't u think I know I'm a joke these days
with a broken track and a laugh I've saved
From the time I almost gave a damn

Guess i built u up til u tumbled down
And u tried so hard just to stay around
U tried to love me the way I am

i never heard a word u had to say
so mad i couldn't have my way

is this what you meant      is this what you said
that some day i might miss you when youre gone
is this what you saw        is this what you want
just to hear me say that i was wrong
isn’t this right         where i belong
     here on the floor    imploring you to change your mind                     
is this what you meant        is this what you meant
still no less the mess you left behind

still no less alone without your hand in mine
waiting by the phone after all this time
wishing i had one more chance to never let you go
wishing you’d come say i told you so


judgment day

Alicia Witt, 2010


take this book of lies and burn it down
break your bank of rules
scrape your knees and bleed the fire out
flame to fight the fuel
 
hold your head up high to face the past
stare it in the teeth
question everything you never ask
the earth shall drink the meek

is there lighting in your veins
 is there something that remains
 nothings ever gonna change
 so take yourself out in the rain
 life is bleedin while you wait
 waitin for your judgment day
 
hypocrites and fools to line your towr
proof you might belong
justified and cruel the velvet hour
drowns out all your wrong 


is there lighting in your veins
 is there something that remains
 nothings ever gonna change
 so take yourself out in the rain
 life is bleedin while you wait
 waitin for your judgment day 

you woke up dead
you filled your head
with all this shit  to crowd the pain
 
your promised land  
  slips thru your hands
the soul you sacrificed to save


letting you go

music and lyrics by Alicia Witt, 2011

This is the part where i walk away
Fade to darkness start this back off where u found me
This is the day i say i'm busy when i'm not
And watch u try to bring me back before i'm really gone

This is where i start letting you go
thÍs is where it all comes down
This is when i first begin getting over u
this is where it all comes down
This is where u start to scare me
Weaving me between your threads of fables gold and blue
dark as plunder smooth like heroin
i fly away on what you see in all ive never been

This is where i start letting you go
thÍs is where it all comes down
This is when i first begin getting over u
this is where it all comes down
you could wrap me up
In boystained sheets and midday morn
until the sun goes out  
tie me down til all these days gone by
give up the ghost and fill me til i drown

i’m falling        i’m falling
theres no way out      
i’ll break you i’ll break you now


love anyway

written by Alicia Witt and Jeff Cohen, 2016

wrote the happy end
    before the story ever started
          but you chose a different book
used to be so free with me
now suddenly you're guarded
 I've lost you now, I know that look

and everything that you're not sayin
I've heard it all before

   so I'm gonna keep my mouth shut
keep my heart wide open
    I'm gonna keep my head up
like I know where I'm going
  
 I'm gonna look you in the eye
stare down faith and all the signs
that say
    nothing's gonna change
and love anyway 

I can't change my heart's refrain
when i know what I feel
 and you won't tell me what you're needing
  I'd do anything and everything to make this real
 but once again I've just been dreaming 

words are gonna fail me
there's too much left to say 

   so I'm gonna keep my mouth shut
keep my heart wide open
    I'm gonna keep my head up
like I know where I'm going
  
 I'm gonna look you in the eye
stare down faith and all the signs
that say
    nothing's gonna change
and love anyway 

even when they say you can’t go on, go on… 

friend


me or new york

music and lyrics by Alicia Witt and Jeff Fiorello, 2010


all of these faces look just the same
lookin for someone in me
all of em wanting to see how i’ve changed
i don’t know who’s to blame…   me or new york
 
they keep on askin where are you goin
i don’t have the answer in me
they keep on bein so sure without knowin
there aint no place like home    it’s me or new york
 
me and new york never sleep any more
we just keep movin on without goin nowhere
leavin before  i could take it or go
now i’m tired and nobody’s going to care
what are we waitin here for it’s me or new york
 
outta these windows they keep on movin
i just wanna fall back asleep
all of their eyes on me faintly accusing
who you tryin to be…

me and new york never sleep any more
we just keep movin on without goin nowhere
leavin before  i could take it or go
now i’m tired and nobody’s going to care
what are we waitin here for it’s me or new york
 
late nights fade into  day light wired and
weary we dream all alonethe trains and my mind losin track of the timeone or the other must go  


friend


how do i put this well
you rip me down and fell
the branches i've been building up around me
til i think i'm gonna cry
not because it hurts it's just been so damn long
since i could see the sky
 
and here's the part where i'm
supposed to play it cool
won't be the first time i'm accused of sayin way too much
 
but i don't wanna be your burden
i don't wanna weigh you down
i don't wanna make you hurt
i just wanna stay around
i don't wanna turn you on
this aint no start but it aint no end
i don't wanna be your promise
i just wanna be your friend
 
you've split me spine to page
i smile so wide the strangest ways
i can't believe you'd open up your complicated life to me
 
but lately i've been so afraid you'll change your mind
and wake up one day thinking i've become too close for comfort
 
(chor)
 
you're a road i never cleared a path for
it's safe to say you made your own way over
you're a gift i'd never dare to ask for
i'm just asking you to stay
 
cuz i don't wanna be your burden
i don't wanna weigh you down
i don't wanna make you hurt
i just wanna stay around
i don't wanna turn you on
this aint no start no happy end
i don't wanna be your promise
i just wanna be your friend
 


new word

music and lyrics: alicia witt - 2011
 
i wish i never said i love you
i wish i had a new hand
i wish i knew the thing i used to think it was
was nothing less than everything i planned
 
you walked in and lit my shadows
 for once i’m not afraid to lose
clear as day i see the frame beneath this steel
the empty spaces in the shape of you
 
it’s all been said it’s all been done
it’s all been wasted on the ones
who came before and fade to grey
they all look more or less the same
and here you are i’m swept away
you make it hard for me to say
a simple line they’ve all been used
i’ll have to find a new word for you
 
i could tell you you amaze me
but you’d still have no idea
feels so good to know i really wasn’t crazy
so good to find you standing here


right now

music and lyrics by Alicia Witt and Jeff Fiorello
RIGHT NOW

i always think of you at the wrong times
she’s close enough to kiss
i thought i wanted this
but when i think of you i change my mind

tonight i laughed so hard it ached
put a silly movie on
  then we talked until the dawn      
 but you’re the reason why i’m still awake 

i want to be holding you right now
i want to fall asleep in your arms
i want to feel your breath in my hair
i want to be wherever you are 

tonight i stayed out late and i drank a few
 she called at half past three
and i smiled in my sleep
   but i still wished it were you      

tonight we watched the moon til the sun came out
i took his hand in mine
 and i went all warm inside
but then i thought of you and it all fell down   

you said i mess with your mind
i chose to hear a compliment
you were only real when you looked in my eyes
i saw everything you meant


satellite

wasting my time 
following you  
   falling behind 
        the flight that you choose 
you say you need space 

lost in your sky 
   I couldn't see 
 chasin the high
     of your galaxy 
as you spin away 

      Ive tried to break this orbit 
        I'm tired of waiting for it 
             the bright side
to come back around 
you don't see me now
    I won't shine til I come down 
I'm just another satellite in your sky
I'm just another satellite in your sky

you let me in
     closer than most 
        then once you did 
you let me go 
  almost but not quite 

    I'm still out here
reaching for you 
      invisible mirror 
   just like the moon 
        waiting for the night

      Ive tried to break this orbit 
        I'm tired of waiting for it 
             the bright side
to come back around 
you don't see me now
    I won't shine til I come down 
I'm just another satellite in your sky
I'm just another satellite in your sky


still sorry

someone asked me yesterday
was there ever one who got away
and I been thinkin bout you since
wonderin all that might've been
if I wasn't so afraid

and I got all these rules I never break
I tend to mean the things I never say
and i never told you how I felt
for the sake of someone else
and I let you slip away

if I could take back that time
if I could wake up and find myself back where I had a road to choose
I'd follow you
I should have made up my mind  
I should have left him behind
instead of fighting
for something so wrong
now you're gone and I'm still sorry 

lookin back I see you watchin me
tryin to figure out if I would leave
I stood there proud on sinkin sand
talkin bout my best laid plans
til you gave up on me

if I could take back that time
if I could wake up and find myself back where I had a road to choose
I'd follow you
I should have made up my mind  
I should have left him behind
instead of fighting
for something so wrong
now you're gone and I'm still sorry 


taken

music and lyrics by Alicia Witt, 2008

and so i sit here thinking
  you’re really sinking in
i can taste you in my mouth
  i can feel you on my skin
i walk outside it’s raining
  what sense in feigning sleep
cuz all i’d do is see your eyes
 what have you done to me

and all around
 i see these faces finding mine  
i hear the sound
  of something pulling me aside
my heart glows small and still and strong
 nothing makes me feel this gone
and this real
        i’m taken

wakin up i stay in bed
 i press my head to yours
you’re still not here but there you are
 it doesn’t matter any more
 
the clock insists it’s 3 am
 i have no when but now
   something is missing in me
 what have you taken out
 
and all around
  i see these faces wasting time
i laugh aloud
  and none of them can tell me why
the crowded hallways of my dreams
 are drowning out the miles between
and i know
 i’m taken
 
you’re breakin me
  and takin all the pieces for your own
stranger things
  have happened i believe but i don’t know
cause here i am
 standing by myself and not alone
 
(verse)
your face the way i left you
 is burned into my screen
i stare until the light goes out
 i can almost hear you breathe
 
the room has turned to darkness
i try and start this song
  and sit here in another plane
while the night outside goes on


the conduit

Alicia Witt, 2017

oh god i get it now
the pieces fall dreamless to dust
in this moment i know you'd laugh at me so hard
what was i thinking of

and so it never was
still it was all meant to be
   i waited so long for you to be fearless
  but you knew one day i'd see

you're not the earth or the sky or my
constellation
you're not the one for all time or my
destination
  you're not the love of my life
you're the love that set me free
i'm finally on to it
you are the conduit 

and all that time i spent
  too hung up on you to see straight
you stayed and waited
   oh is this the ending
you didn't wanna give away

   and you're inscrutable
but it was mutual
    the usual which came first
still i went tumbling down your tunnel
and you remained on solid earth 


the other girl

Alicia Witt , 2010

i wanna be the girl who dances
the one whos called and never answers
i wanna take you down like a tidal wave

 i wanna live inside your freedom
     go home late and leave you needin
i wanna ride your fever til it breaks

and you’re the boy they all adore
    you always get your way
they go in and out your door
and then you walk away

i wanna be the other girl        
     i wanna be the one you never leave
i wanna be the other girl    
i wanna be your sweetest mystery

i wanna stay and rock your world
in a way that no one else can do
they’ll come and go you know i wont
   i wanna be the other girl to you

don’t get me wrong you drive me crazy
  its getting hard to keep behaving
but i can be good when i got so much to lose

haven’t we both got toys enough thru
all of the girls and boys i love you
so many ways i don’t wanna choose 

and there’s nothing we cant talk about
i think my heart would break
 if you ever started treating me
like just another game


theme from 'pasadena' (you can go home) feat. ben folds

music by ben folds, lyrics by alicia witt - 2013
 
and for the falling stars
the broken hearts
mansions in your mind
 
and all the roads that were lost
the signs you missed
turns that passed you by
 
maybe it's not too late
to find your way
it's not your place to say
what if you can- 
you can go home again
 
what if the cards you thought
were stacked against you
never knew your name
 
what if you're seeing it wrong
and nothing was lost
we all have to make mistakes
 
you can retrace the steps
you took that led
you back to where you came
what if you can
you can go home again
 
you can go home - again
you can go home - again
you can go home - again
 
and tho you lost your way
it's not too late
god knows you damn well tried
 
and all the stones you tossed
they're ripples now
waves you left behind
they're leading you back
you can go home again
you can go home again
you can go home again


there is no someday

music and lyrics by Alicia Witt, 2012


Fairy tales are made for children
 no one cares if london's burnin
Down around you rainin pots of gold 

even rainbows end and move along
The knight in shining armor strong
Goes weak and drops you in the road

And here you come again    
  To reach beneath my pillow
Save your penny I already know

There is no someday
There is no once upon a time
There is no one day
There is no when the stars align
There is no wait and see
No maybe we can try another way
Our happy end will never come
There is no someday

Make believe is fine and well when
 all you need are lies you tell yourself
  to make it easier to breathe

Windows don't go flyin open
Every time a doors been closed and
 toads arent (really princes at your feet) princes just you wait and see

 Wishes won't come true
 Shooting stars don't give a damn
 Just like you they're never gonna change

There is no someday
There is no once upon a time
There is no one day
There is no when the stars align
There is no wait and see
No maybe we can try another way
Our happy end will never come
There is no someday


 The storm will sleep
far out at sea  
     the mermaids will be swimming in the sky
  You'll take me in your arms and set me free    
when horses grow a silver horn and fly

younger

written by Alicia Witt, Catt Gravitt and Tofer Brown


these eyes are closin in around us

these walls are holding you hostage 

 you're so afraid but let's be honest

   it's not too late

to fade away 


and disappear into the stars

  above the noise

and rise the silence like a wave

you have the choice to 

     reveal the quiet that you're hiding in your voice


let's take the world and discover 

all we used to know.... I

wanna find a way to the wonder,like

when we were younger 


let's run where it says there's no running

let's break our hearts open wide

   turn down the static and the buzzing

    let's leave this cage

and lose our chains


and disappear into the stars

  above the noise

and rise the silence like a wave

you have the choice to 

     reveal the quiet that you're hiding in your voice

 

let's take the world and discover 

all we used to know.... i 

wanna find a way to the wonder,like

when we were younger 


(when we were...)

 free to color way outside of the lines  (when we were...) 

    seeking everything with nothing to hide (when we were...)

   making up the rules we knew we could fly 

 let's find our way tonight 


and disappear into the stars

  above the noise

and rise the silence like a wave

you have the choice to 

     reveal the quiet that you're hiding in your voice

 

let's take the world and discover all we used to know.... I

wanna find a way to the wonder,like

when we were younger
