Track Name: Dark Cloud
Dark Cloud

Take this energy
free me release me
send it out to sea
the madness, the envy

Half truths and half lies
a mouthful of your words
they hang on every line
You're brilliant, your absurd

Every time you come through town
the wind blows rough the the rain comes down
I don't want to be around your dark cloud
Everything the lightning strikes
the great lake bows the rain comes down
I don't want to be around your dark cloud


You're so hard to love
I got close I got tough
I gave you all I had
But it was never enough

For someone so unique
unusual incomparable

where's your mystery
when you're so predictable


Every time you come through town
the wind blows rough the the rain comes down
I don't want to be around your dark cloud
Everything the lightning strikes
the great lake bows the rain comes down
I don't want to be around your dark cloud



all your roses waste away
and all the sweetness fades
Track Name: Compass
Compass (Lyrics and music by Meghan Toohey)

I wanna take you somewhere where we can be free
I want to take you there now
I wanna know where we can go where we can be free
the when the where and the how

I'll be your compass guide you on your way
Why wait till tomorrow I can get you there today
I'll be magnetic baby I will be your jewel
Just keep the needle spinning I will be your tool

I wanna be your guitar baby
I want to be your instrument
I want to be bank for your savings
where your money's well spent

Constellations above the sea
North by north East into the night time
Point direction towards me
South by south west when it's the right time

I wanna be your night cap crazy
don't wanna be a friend
i wanna see you true north baby
enough of this pretend
Track Name: Hold On To Me
Can you come close to a ending without a tear
Can you hold open your hands and let go all go
I'll keep you safe don't worry
We will concur this i'm sure of

When it all comes crashing down
And you're lost in the debris
I will hold on to you and you can hold on to me
Cuz it all might fall apart
And you're gonna have to set it free
I will hold on to you and you can hold on to me


Can you hold on to a secret hat wants to be told
And do you know who you can turn to
If it gets out
I'll keep it safe don't you worry
We will concur this i'm sure of

When it all comes crashing down
And you're lost in the debris
I will hold on to you and you can hold on to me
Cuz it all might fall apart
And you're gonna have to set it free
I will hold on to you and you can hold on to me

And Even if you think the light is gone
I know that you will carry on
Track Name: Lost All Control
Lost All Control
Lyrics and music by Meghan Toohey

I wanted to stay with you
I felt you crawl in my skin
I wanted you so badly
I wanted to let you in

Cause I feel it what it would feel like
Feel it in my soul
And Iike a child I lost all control


I felt myself fall behind
The harder you hit the harder I tried
You rattled my bones you shook me deep
You left me a secret I couldn't keep

Cause I feel it what it would feel like
Feel it in my soul
And Iike a child I lost all control


And the closer I get to leaving
The more I can feel you breathing
The more I can taste your kiss
The more I can life through this


Cause I feel it what it would feel like
Feel it in my soul
And Iike a child I lost all control
Track Name: Runaway
This town is way too old
We won't ever fit the mold
we're stranded we're stranded

We said things others only thought
We fought the fight and we were caught
red handed, red handed

So take your hand in my hand and we'll far away from here
Runaway

We're not long for here
Take off now let's disappear
a rabbit a shotgun

Fast as we can go
sky above and ground below
don't you love to run



so take your hand in my hand and we'll far away from here
let's runaway

And nobody can tell us who to be, how to live, who to love
Track Name: The Omen
There's a bird in the house
Surely it's a sign
Surely it's an omen
Crisis is coming
So we open up the window
We open up the Door
Does the soul cry out? When the soul flies out

What will I become without you?

There's a howling dog at night
And the clock chimes slowly
Surely it's an omen
Change is coming
There's a black cat crossing
And a ladder in the hall
Look out for the mirror
That slips from the Wall

What will I become without you?

Saw an owl in the daytime
It was content in the white snow
I watched it fly so freely
Into the wood below
What will I become?
Track Name: Just A Thought
Everywhere I look I see you in the air
Colors in your skin & colors of your hair
Every time I turn a corner there you are
Doesn't matter if you're near or if you're far
...and then you turn to me and you say
I am just a pawn for you imagination
I am just a thought from your own creation…make me real
Could you be the one, the one that I despise
Who are you behind the purple eyes
Who am I to think you'd want to be with me
Whatever you want i promise it will be
...and then you turn to me and you say
I am just a pawn for you imagination
I am just a thought from your own creation...make me real Whatever you want...it will be
Track Name: Grow
When I think of all of these years
we've already lived through
I am sure of only this
you for me and me for you

When I feel my sprit broken
and my thoughts cannot compose
You will piece back together
my love for you just grows

it grows like the wildest weed
It grows like a redwood tree
It grows like a swell at sea
it grows like the child in me

In the morning I see clearly
All the creases and folds
but these marks just mean we're older
and together we will grow

it grows like city grows
it grows like a redwood tree
it grows like a swell at sea
it grows like the child in me
