Track Name: For the Record
For the Record
by Julie Adamo

Verse 1:
It’s been a while, does it end this time
Black denim, and a measured smile
There was a lighthouse out at sea
And I wonder will it shine for me
Ever shine for me

Chorus:
Don’t you ever wonder
What you mean to me
For the record I wanted to scream
Oh come with me
Come with me
I know I could never say just what I mean
Oh come with me
Come with me

Verse 2:
Now you’re in my sight, and I realize
I might spend the rest of my time
Missing your metal heart, this is not
A forgiving life, forgiving life

Chorus:
Don’t you ever wonder
What you mean to me
For the record I wanted to scream
Oh come with me
Come with me
I know I could never say just what I mean
Oh come with me
Come with me

Outro:
If you ever find yourself in need
Just come to me, come to me
Track Name: Time
Time

Verse 1
Wrote you a letter and now there’s nothing left to say
Can’t make sense of how, here you were and now
How far you are away

Chorus
Oh what they say about time
Healing your wounds, easing your mind
Oh well the tales they tell are not tales of mine
Bitter fruit falls from perfect vines
And I’m not the same as I was
And I don’t know who I will love, who I will love

Verse 2
What was it that happened to you babe in a story before mine
You refuse any love that might weave its way
Into your mind, love like mine

When you wake with someone simple who you forget immediately
And tire of defending the one heart you will ever carry
Will you remember me, will you remember me, will you remember

Chorus
Oh what they say about time
Healing your wounds, easing your mind
Oh well the tales they tell are not tales of mine
Bitter fruit falls from perfect vines
And I’m not the same as I was
And I don’t know who I will love, who I will love
Who I will love

Track Name: What's Wrong?
What’s Wrong
by Julie Adamo

Verse 1:
What’s wrong
What’s wrong
I know they all make you feel
Make you feel so small
So Small

Chorus:
No one ever asked you, what’s on your mind
This time is different, I’m on your side
In silence you can wait but
You won’t find redemption
Besides that they’ll take all
The space that you let them

Verse 2:
What’s wrong
What’s wrong
Who was it told you
Your words mean nothing at all
At all

Repeat chorus

Bridge
Oooooooooohhhhhhh
Oooohhhhh

Outro:
I promise you won’t always feel
Always feel so small
So small
Track Name: Witches
Witches

Verse 1
Got some big degrees and think you know everything
And when you're talking to me I'll trust what you're saying
I don't know who gave you authority
It wasn't anyone anything like me

Chorus
You murdered the witches
Erected your institutions
And after hundreds of years still no solutions
Your wars are bigger, buildings are taller but
I don't see much difference at all!

Verse 2
Thought if you killed the wise women and wrecked their traditions
The rest would know nothing but your delusions
Thought you could make chemicals more godly than water
Your papers surer fact than our grandmothers

Chorus
You murdered the witches
Erected your institutions
And after hundreds of years still no solutions
Your wars are bigger, buildings are taller but
I don't see much difference at all!

Outro
Not my everything! (x4)
