hallelujah love has come again hallelujah could it be it's time to mend my heart how do i start how i love to smell you on my skin morning breaks to light our sleeping yin yang counterpart and i'm moving too fast but hoping it lasts scared to face the inevitable blast to tell you how i feel if the truth of how i feel is not in time with you hello did you have a trying day i am here let me be the one to kiss away all your woes heaven knows heaven knows i don't deserve your charms oh but hallelujah fold me in your arms and don't let go just hold me tonight love me tonight and leave me in the morning light just kiss my dreaming eyes and leave me sleeping in the memory of you hallelujah how'd we come to this hallelujah feel the quaking when we kiss kiss me again willow, i'm a willow and i am bending to your breath willing now to face the pain and let your breath cool my skin just hold me tonight love me tonight and leave me in the morning light just kiss my dreaming eyes and leave me sleeping in the memory of you written by Maggie Hollinbeck published by Deep Soul Dive Music, ASCAP all rights reserved

You say I’m a wonderful woman And the pedestal shakes away You say I’m the best thing that’s happened to you And this tear inside my soul gives way You say we have so much in common So much it scares me sometimes And I’d like to grab hold of this wild pony and ride But the cliff is up ahead just out of sight and I will not give in till you understand I am not so wonderful as you think I am I see the sun set in the water But the fire never dies And I think I love you so hard But I stuff it down so far inside and It will not give in till you understand I am not so wonderful as you think I am ‘Cause there’s a piece of me that got pushed too far inside And it fell down in the dark to hide And you press your fingers ‘gainst the holes But I come apart in your hand And I don’t know if I can stand this pain And I don’t want you to go and I don’t want to cause you pain Here we stand once again face to face to face to face Will you take no guarantees and will you keep a pace With these demons I’ve got running ‘round inside All these monsters running through my mind They will not give in till you understand I am not so wonderful as you think I am No I will not give in till you understand I am not so wonderful as you think I am written by Maggie Hollinbeck published by Deep Soul Dive Music, ASCAP all rights reserved

you got what you want you got what you need you got what you want i guess i'll be leaving when the cat's away the mice will play and i don't need to say who's who in this array what i need the most i just need to ghost i can't play the host to your parasitic ways no one else to blame i guess i played the game and a moth inside the flame will burn her wings away you'll be wondering who just got through with you you'll be burning too and i'll be on my way

little girl said mama look think i'm gonna fly today little girl said mama look think i'm gonna fly today and she strapped on her wings knotted the strings around her throat with nothing to bring her down feathers singing she went up floating spinning up she goes up to heaven up to who knows ripping reaching up she goes and down again mama look she cried gonna catch a star today mama see she cried gonna go far today and with those feathers running down her spine she looked up at this fine gentleman flash in her eyes again catching the skies she went up but what goes up must come down again the reddest roses fade to brown again and return to dust develop rust we all fall down down she came broke and bruised along the way all alone she came lost and scattered and grey she said i don't want to fly by heart it's so lonely so dark and so high and everything comes apart in the sky everything going up just comes raining down again true blue love fades to brown again and returns to dust i'm full of rust we all fall down little girl said mama look think i'm gonna fly today scared as hell but mama look think i'm gonna fly today and she strapped on her wings torn and tattered wings from long ago she stared into the sun like a bullet from a smoking gun up written by Maggie Hollinbeck published by Deep Soul Dive Music, ASCAP all rights reserved

as the sun sits on the hillside preparing its nightly magic act clouds gather 'round to catch its colors as they fly she pours herself a brandy and dusts off the hem of her favorite dress shakes her hair down to her waist and drinks in the purple sky last night her baby said goodbye was a time she loved him to much it left her without breath she cried and kissed him when he took her for his wife they bought a plot of land a house with a porch and a yellow lab lying by the fire they planned the details of their life they never dreamed the flame could die but love is a fire that needs tending the embers fade so slow you cannot see she never dreamed she would not miss his touch she never thought she'd feel so free he loved another woman she'd always known the truth he cried and kissed her and she watched him down the drive now she sips on her brandy and laughs at her hair and her favorite dress rekindling a love that she had always denied a love from way down deep inside and love is a fire that needs tending and she'll be damned if she will let these embers be though she thought she'd always need his touch the flame is finally burning free she never thought she'd feel so free written by Maggie Hollinbeck published by Deep Soul Dive Music, ASCAP all rights reserved

guess what you haven't really got one single clue as to who i am inside now i see it wasn't really me you tried to love and ended up so dissatisfied and i can't believe i ever cared to leave myself behind and try to be something of which you could approve how could i have ever been so blind oh yes your life's a mess but you know best how to speak my mind and live my life for me heads up i'm not some wooden puppet for you to practice all the things that you haven't got the guts to be and i can't believe i ever cared to leave myself behind and try to be something of which you could approve how could i have ever been so blind kiss my ass get up off your high and mighty throne kiss my ass don't you come one home till you've grown a little backbone of your own all those times you chipped away chipped me down to size all this time i thought that i was so immune only now i realize you're so proud sitting in the crowd you think somehow that this is just another feather in your cap your chin a condescending grin but someday someone'll clip it with a thunderclap slap i hope i'm around for that 'cause i can't believe i never dared to leave your sorry ass behind instead i tried to be something of which you could approve i'm no longer so deaf dumb and blind kiss my ass get up off your high and mighty throne kiss my ass don't you come one home till you've grown a little backbone of your own stop living everybody else's life and live your own written by Maggie Hollinbeck published by Deep Soul Dive Music, ASCAP all rights reserved

i know you've nothing left to give i know your heart's an empty sieve i know that you feel bruised and battered all that matters now i've got a soft place for you to land i know you've got no strength to stand let the madness overtake you but know the madness cannot break you anyhow hold on i'll keep the fire inside me burning i'll stroke your hair and know your fire's returning we know the rules love i can't do more but i can hold the faith you dropped outside the door hold on om purnamadah purnamidam purnat purnamudachyate purnasya purnamadaya purnamevavashishyate* written by Maggie Hollinbeck published by Deep Soul Dive Music, ASCAP all rights reserved *sanskrit prayer from the Upanishads translation: that is perfect this is perfect from the perfect emerges the perfect the perfect coming from the perfect the perfect still remains
