Track Name: Hail Mary
God I don’t want this plane to land
No one’s waiting on the other end
Just an empty car and a long long drive
Crawlin up the 405

And I don’t want my mom to know
That I fall apart when I’m alone
So I tell her I’m doing fine
Flying out is a waste of time

Hail Mary, I don’t have much left in me

I don’t want my friends to know
Cuz I’m too proud to let it show
So I’m talking to the mirror
Asking why I’m even here

Hail Mary, I don’t have much left in me

Hail Mary, like my momma used to say
The virgin and my mom have the same name
When I was little I thought that she was praying
To herself, but now I’m wondering
What if she was?
What if she was, if she was, if she was?

Hail Mary, I don’t have much left in me
Track Name: The Mountain (feat. Kiah Victoria)
Always knew I was loose a screw or three
The wrong words came every time I tried to speak
But even being brow beaten down by all your doubt
Was something I can take, something I can take
Cuz I live my life for the sake of love
I’m never gonna break, never gonna break

I am a mountain, and you’re never gonna step over me
Higher than the clouds, up on a level that you can’t even see
Cuz I spent so long feeling low and wrong
But you’re never gonna step, never gonna step over me

You could try catching lightning in a jar
Waste your life wishing you could be a star
Even being high in the sky on a cloudless night
You’d never see the day, never see the day
Oh though a peak takes a while to reach
The climb sure beats a cage

I am a Mountain, and you’re never gonna step over me
Higher than the clouds, up on a level that you can’t even see
Cuz I spent so long feeling low and wrong
All the silence made me scream
I am a mountain, and you’re never gonna step over me

I don’t need a bottle full of lightning
I don’t need to sparkle in the night
I don’t need to flatten out my sides
Cuz I define the skyline

I am a Mountain, and you’re never gonna step over me
Higher than the clouds, up on a level that you can’t even see
Cuz I spent so long feeling low and wrong
All the silence made me scream
I am a mountain, and you’re never gonna step over me
Track Name: Fire In Your Lungs
margaritas make perfect friends
on a night when you need to lose your head
call those girls up that love to smile
and forget your worries and try to catch on fire

don’t spend the night
dreamin bout the one you used to love
Spend the night in a new dream

Just hold my drink cuz it’s been too long
since we danced like fools to some top 40 song,
and hold that thought cuz it won’t be long
til there’s only ice in your cup
and fire in your lungs
let it burn, let it burn, let it burn,
there’s fire in your lungs

total strangers can start a spark
drop a beat that moves just like your heart
fall in love while the music plays
light the night up and hide out in the day

don’t spend the night
dreamin bout the world you thought it was
spend the night in a new dream

just hold my drink cuz it’s been too long
since we danced like fools to some top 40 song,
and hold that thought cuz it won’t be long
til there’s only ice in your cup
and fire in your lungs

don’t spend the night lost in love with yesterday
and don’t spend the night in an old dream
don’t spend the night lost in love with yesterday
and just spend the night with me

and hold my drink cuz it’s been too long
since we danced like fools to some top 40 song,
and hold that thought cuz it won’t be long
til there’s only ice in your cup
and fire in your lungs
let it burn, let it burn, let it burn,
There’s fire in your lungs
Track Name: Falling All Alone
He’s coming up your driveway in his car
Fireworks go off inside your heart
You’re standing on a tower made of cards
In a hurricane

You start to think he’s falling just as fast as you
He you sings love songs, every word is true
But he didn’t write them for you

Hand in hand, you jump off
You feel invincible,
But he’s got a parachute on
Now you’re falling all alone
Whoa whoa you’re falling all alone

Now you’re getting used to how it feels
When he’s in the room he says he’s head over heels
but when he leaves, he disappears

And you wonder
Was it something you did, something you said?
You never know what's running through his head
No matter what he says

Hand in Hand you jump off
You feel invincible,
But he’s got a parachute on
Now you’re falling all alone

You could stay but you’d keep falling all alone

You find someone else in another town
He always makes you laugh but never quite as loud
You should’ve stayed on the ground

Hand in Hand you jump off
He feels invincible,
But you got a parachute on
Now he’s falling all alone
whoa whoa he’s falling all alone
Track Name: Had Enough
It’s the kiss I can’t forget
You left it on his lips
It’s the lie you colored white
That tears me up like this

I want to crash and burn
I want to make you learn
I want to lose myself in someone new
But I can’t move my feet
We keep the same old beat
Cuz all I want is you

Oh god knows when we’ll have enough
I aint had enough of this stubborn love
Oh god knows we’ve been mad enough
But are we mad enough to keep this up?

it’s the way I used to say
those three words so easily
now they stick inside my throat
but god I swear I seen it
there’s something there between us

I want to crash and burn
I wanna make you learn
I want to lose myself in someone new
When it gets this bad
I always call you back
cuz all I want is you

Oh god knows when we’ll have enough
I aint had enough of this stubborn love
Oh god knows we’ve been mad enough
But are we mad enough to keep this up?

We patch it up, only to crash and
Catching up, we never seem to
are we just telling ourselves the lies we need to hear

oh god knows when we’ll have enough
i aint had enough of this stubborn love
(maybe I’ve had enough)
oh god knows we’ve been mad enough
but are we mad enough to keep this up?
Maybe I’ve had enough
