Track Name: Arthur
Arthur

Composed by Allison Crowe
As performed by Allison Crowe and Band

And the weight of this war
We are fighting
Is a door that is opening
And sighing

You say come back inside
It is warm here
You have seen it out there
And you ran
away

If you lift without strength
Can you move it
Or the sword in this stone
Would you lose it

Are you Arthur
Or only pretending
And this hope you have burned
Are you sending
away

Away, away…

Would you hold me
If I disappeared now
And if I didn’t know
Who I was

Would you stay with me
While I was losing
Or lay down your sword
And run
away

Would you still love me
If I forgot you
If my heart held to
Only a thread

In the flicker of eyes
I would see you
Would you carry me back
from my dread
away

Away, 'way, away

away, away
Track Name: You All Haunt Me
You All Haunt Me

Composed by Allison Crowe
As performed by Allison Crowe and Band

I would take it back
if it was even real
I would tell you how
exactly how I feel
And it would be ugly
and you would be scared

Can’t you see my face?
Oh can you hear my voice?
Now, how can you tell me
that this is a choice,
Did I ask for this?
Now, why would I do that?

And this is all I have
And this is all I am
And you haunt me, you all haunt me

Now, if you think that I forgot
if you think that I’ve moved on
I ask you - have you even met me?
What planet are you on?
I don't forget anything
even though I try

I may be too intense
I may be too revealed
Yeah, I may be crazy, baby
But you’re so, so concealed
I never saw a thing

And this is all I have
And this is all I am
And you haunt me, you all haunt me

Now, why did I do this?
Yeah, why did I say that?
And why did you pretend to care
when I know that you were watching me cry
Yeah, you watched me die

When light circled my eyes
and my heart tried to leave me
My words were all gone wild
Not even I could believe me
any more
You have to know that I tried

And this is all I am
And this is all I have
And you haunt me, yeah, you haunt me

You haunt me

You all haunt me
Track Name: Silence
Silence

Composed by Allison Crowe
As performed by Allison Crowe and Band

Silence
In the darkness of your soul
Following your call

Grey skies
Belong to me
Open my eyes

Rain falls
On you
On me
You cannot control
Where you are
supposed to be

Bring the winds
That carry you
Bring them to me

I will hold
This rebel light
This renegade sea

Rain falls
On you
On me
I cannot control
Where I am
Supposed to be

I wait in the dark
I carry these chains
I roam through this night

No I’ll not open the door
For you to be free
For you to take flight

Rain falls
On you
On me

We cannot control
where we
are supposed to be
Track Name: Happy People
Happy People

Composed by Allison Crowe
As performed by Allison Crowe and Band

Sometimes
I really hate happy people
Sometimes
I resent the hell out of you
and sometimes, you know,
I really hate myself
a higher part of me
knows that this is wrong

And I wait
part of this to make sense
and I wait
until it's my turn to fight
and I know
I could be waiting a long time
but I wait for you
to tell me everything's alright

And I've walked
a million times beside you
and not once
have I felt worthy to
and I know
I probably have my own place
somewhere dark, somewhere cold,
somewhere
where no one can see me

And I wait
part of this to make sense
and I wait
until it's my turn to fight
and I know
I could be waiting a long time
but I wait for you
to tell me everything's alright

And I've tried
to purify myself
I've pulled the drain
so many times
and I watch
as the water strips from me
all my pain, all my love,
all that will come back tomorrow

And I wait
part of this to make sense
and I wait
until it's my turn to fight
and I know
I could be waiting a long time
but I wait for you
to tell me everything's alright

And I wait
for any of this to make sense
and I wait until
its my turn to take flight
and I know I could
be waiting forever
but I wait for you
to tell me everything's alright

‘cause it doesn't feel alright
Nothing feels alright
alright

So, is that alright
with you
Track Name: Spiral
Spiral

Composed by Allison Crowe
As performed by Allison Crowe and Band

I’m jealous and crazy
Languid and lazy
Take me quickly
Fill me sickly

Naked I take it
Two lips and a paid debt
Returned and recurring
laid and stirring

Spiral quickly
You can’t see me
But I’m dropping fast
See I want it
See I want it
See I want it now

In peace thoughts fasten
buckled and crass, then,
safely saunter
silent wander

A fine degradation
thick sedation
pain dissipates
sacred desecrates

Spiral quickly
You can’t see me
But I’m dropping fast again
See I want it
See I want it
See I want it now

Spiral quickly
You can’t see me
But I’m dropping fast again
See I want it
See I want it
See I want it now

See I want it
See I want it
See I want it now
Track Name: Going Home Tonight
Going Home Tonight

Composed by Allison Crowe
As performed by Allison Crowe and Band

I know the night is on us
and la lune it moves above
just try not to close your eyes

The windows float around
and the ice flies by our heads
and skirts the surface now

And you've seen
the darker side of me
and you still find a light
it's not much further now
We're going home tonight

Le soleil is a reminder
that what once was cold can warm
the dark can fall behind her
it's in your shadow now
the winter's at its end
and all can fall to blindness of the freezing rain

and I see the darker side of me
and I still find a light
It's not much further now
We're going home tonight

Forget what you have learned here
it doesn't matter now
not while the grass is greening

L'oiseau is loudly singing
and the sun becomes her home
and everything is fallen
the curtains drop as she takes hold

And sees the darker side of me
and she still finds a light
it's not much further now
We're going home tonight

And I see the darker side of me
and I still find a light
It's not much further now
We're going home tonight

We’re going home
Tonight
