Track Name: Love Kills Everything
Love Kills Everything
Words and Music by Marty Shaughnessy

Say my name for the third time
I just need to remind myself
That life is lightning and the stars are spies
I got lost while counting them

Whisper sweet just to feel your breath on my face
And I’m fourteen again
I don’t know the words you say but
I want to take you far from here

I need to hear you more than I do now
Breathe in me baby, more than you breathe out
We’ll fall down fast but we’ll wake up real slow
It just goes to show you…love kills everything

Say my name for the third time
I just need to remind myself
That life is lightning and the stars are spies
I got lost while counting them

I need to hear you more than I do now
Breathe in me baby, more than you breathe out
We’ll fall down fast but we’ll wake up real slow
It just goes to show you…love kills everything
Track Name: Feeling September
Feeling September
Words and Music by Marty Shaughnessy

Do you feel so alone when the summer dies?
I can see it in your face…
Discontent for all the leaves that cover up your eyes
Your words are twirling in the wind
Calendar sheds it skin and I’m still here

Feeling autumn kisses, under cold moon
I’m walking through myself just to touch you
Melting by piano, as she sings

Would you believe in me my love?
Could you really know my heart
As I share my soul, please cover me
My words don’t mean much anymore
And I’m not sure what you’re looking for

Wading through direction that you’ve left
Wondering how close…
We could get to you and your heart, my God

Would you believe in me my love?
Could you really know my heart
As I share my soul, please cover me
My words don’t mean much anymore
And I’m not sure what you’re looking for
Track Name: Waves
Waves
Words and Music by Marty Shaughnessy

I’m caught beneath these waves and
In some ways I can’t believe it
If you hold on too hard
Well...they’ll always let you go

The angel in silence, she speaks without words
I overheard someone laughing yesterday
I throw these words at the ceiling
But are they falling back on me?

When it all comes down, when it all starts to fade
When it feels like the sun might never shine again

I hear something deep inside your whispering
I feel all the love you have been giving me

It’s hard to explain, this way that I’ve been feeling
I held on too hard and this world went by too fast

Here by this water, sorting my feelings
All this guilt, tangled in reason
You said you’d stay but you’re leaving
Baby...I always knew you would
Track Name: Lower Than the Trees
Lower Than the Trees
Words and Music by Marty Shaughnessy

Took a day off work today
Try to find some words to sing
Replace all the rusty strings inside my head
If I told you what was on my mind
You wouldn’t look at me with the same eyes
It’s so hard sometimes to be yourself these days

In the shade I close my eyes, lifting doubts up to the sky
I’m slowly learning how to let them fly away
But trusting is the hardest part
And knowing where to begin
There’s still candles in my heart burning, and I still slip

But sometimes...La la la la, there’s nothing I can say but la, la, la

So shine your light down upon my face
Amazing grace, how sweet the sound...I spin around you
As the sun drops down, lower than the trees
I still see and I’m gonna trust you as much as I can

In my car I drive alone and turn on my radio
I hear a familiar voice that somewhat beckons me
To kiss the stars above, and show the world love
To turn myself against myself sometimes (If I have to)

But sometimes...La la la la, there’s nothing I can say to make this go away
Track Name: Discolored
Discolored
Words and Music by Marty Shaughnessy

Hello lover of my soul,
It’s been a long time since you’ve taken me for a walk around
A waltz inside your head
So please tell me you love me, please tell me again
Because I want to be pure

Falling snow, I seem to be
Feather down from the sky, sleeping on the trees
We all need someone to hold onto our words
But when crosses are hollow, trust discolors
I want to be pure

And love...love hangs from a tree
Hammer hands, holding heart
Caught somewhere in between
Remember me, because I feel like someone else
Tell me how can I love, when I can’t love myself?
I want to be pure
