YOU'RE NOT COMING BACK TO ME

(written by Lauren Lapointe)

I've been driving all night
A long way from home
I've been driving all night
All alone

You've been searching for something
What can it be
You've been searching for something
It sure isn't me

Baby can't you see
You're in every part of me
Night closes down on this road to eternity
'Cause you're not coming back to me

Maybe I'm not perfect
Well what about you
You think you deserve the sun, the stars
And the moon too

Baby can't you see
You're in every part of me
Night closes down on this road to eternity
'Cause you're not coming back to me

Five A.M. and the night is still young
How can you sleep with the things that you've done

Baby can't you see
You're in every part of me
Night closes down on this road to eternity
'Cause you're not coming back to me
No, you're not coming back to me
No, you're not coming back to me

I've been driving all night

YOU COULD BE KING

(written by Lauren Lapointe)

Baby when you look at me
Maybe you will one day see
You're good enough
You could be king

Baby when you look into my eyes
I know that you crossed the lines sometimes
You're strong enough
You could be king

When you look into the mirror
Do you see your own reflection
And all the beauty that's inside?

Can't hold a candle to it
Too scared to get too near it
Isn't it much easier to hide?

Baby when you look at me
Maybe you will one day see
You're good enough
You could be king

Baby when you look into my eyes
I know that you crossed the lines sometimes
You're strong enough
You could be king

Just take yourself for granted
Sow the seed that other's planted
Wondering why love has passed you by

You're on an island in the sea
But you're right next to me
So let's try to find each other tonight

Baby when you look at me
Maybe you will one day see
You're good enough
You could be king

Baby when you look into my eyes
I know that you crossed the lines sometimes
You're strong enough
You could be king

Don't second-guess your instinct
You may find it's right
And then you'll fly

Baby when you look at me
Maybe you will one day see
You're good enough
You could be king

Baby when you look into my eyes
I know that you crossed the lines sometimes
You're strong enough
You could be king
You're strong enough
You could be king
You're strong enough
You could be king

YOU HAVE TO GO

(written by Lauren Lapointe)

Oh baby the love that you gave me
Made me strong inside
A fire burnin'
Makin' me feel alive
But on the day you left me
I thought I would die
Though I wait in shadow
I will never hide

You have to go
Find a place of your own
I can't help you this time
You have to go alone
Cross those mountains
Face the stormy seas
When you found what you're missing
You'll see that it's me

I can't say I blame you
For wanting more and more
We've all felt this feeling
At least once before
The light it fades now
And I can't see your smile
I turn towards the darkness
Just for awhile

You have to go
Find a place of your own
I can't help you this time
You have to go alone
Cross those mountains
Face the stormy seas
When you found what you're missing
You'll see that it's me

Hurry back baby I am losing memory
Give me something, just a little hope
Something I can see

You have to go
Find a place of your own
I can't help you this time
You have to go alone
Cross those mountains
Face the stormy seas
When you found what you're missing
You'll see that it's me
You'll see that it's me
You'll see that it's me

BEAUTIFUL SHADOW

(written by Lauren Lapointe)

Boy in the corner
He is too afraid to smile
He'd rather imagine places
Where he can be someone else for awhile

He paints a picture
Of the way he'd like to be
And at night he dreams he is an eagle
So strong and free

Beautiful shadow
Run away, run away
Such a familiar refrain
We don't have to be the same
Your strength is in your silence
And your beauty's not skin deep
You are not alone, beautiful shadow
You are not alone

She always wanted to be
More like the girls at her school
She envied the effortless way
It took for them to be cool

She sang her song in a garden of dreams
Where no one could hear her soul
And learned to be invisible
As she went about the world

Beautiful shadow
Run away, run away
Such a familiar refrain
We don't have to be the same
Your strength is in your silence
And your beauty's not skin deep
You are not alone, beautiful shadow
You are not alone

You are not alone, beautiful shadow
You are not alone

GYPSY

(written by Lauren Lapointe)

Cold morning
Long evening
Another day is over
And it's time to be dreamin'

Hear the children laughing
And you don't remember why
See the birds along the ledge
They only want to fly

You're just a gypsy
On your way to distant places
Barely time to catch your breath
And memorize the faces
It's an open road
It's like an invitation
You don't have to worry about seeing the end
You'll never reach your destination

You want to be so wild
'Cause somebody said you were tame
It's easier to run
Than sacrifice your name

You're just a gypsy
On your way to distant places
Barely time to catch your breath
And memorize the faces
It's an open road
It's like an invitation
You don't have to worry about seeing the end
You'll never reach your destination

Warm wind in your hair
Makes you want to be free
Roll the top down
Chase eternity

You're just a gypsy
On your way to distant places
Barely time to catch your breath
And memorize...
It's an open road
It's like an invitation
You don't have to worry about seeing the end
You'll never reach your destination

Oh, oh...

NEW MEXICO

(written by Lauren Lapointe)

I've been dreamin' of the place I'll go
When it's time to run
New Mexico

I'll be sleepin' under the stars tonight
Though they may be far
They're gonna shine so bright

So hard to leave here
I've got my comfort
And everything I need so near

Some day I'll go
Follow my heart to New Mexico
Maybe I'll find
That New Mexico is just inside my mind

I'll only bring the things I needs
Without my guitar
I won't get too far

I can finally sing a song or two for free
'Cause I won't have to sing
For anyone but me

So hard to leave here
I've got my comfort
And everything I need so near

Some day I'll go
Follow my heart to New Mexico
Maybe I'll find
That New Mexico is just inside my mind

Everyone's here telling me what to do
But what I really need is you

Some day I'll go
Follow my heart to New Mexico
Maybe I'll find
That New Mexico is just inside my mind

New Mexico, I'm coming to you...

NEVER TOO LATE

(written by Lauren Lapointe)

I heard someone day that our differences won't go away
And we will all die one day
Then I saw the sun it looked at us like we were one
And laughed at all the damage we had done

We are all the same
Just people with our passions and our shame
Trying hard to make a name
We all love, we all hate
We can't deny that this is not our fate
And it's never too late to try again
No, it's never too late

With one eye you can see what other's do
When it's closed you can finally see the truth
Blinded by the colors, the kaleidoscope of life
A marriage of society, of politics and strife

We are all the same
Just people with our passions and our shame
Trying hard to make a name
We all love, we all hate
We can't deny that this is not our fate
And it's never too late to try again
No, it's never too late

The sands of time are slipping
But your ship hasn't come in
Time to put the blade away
And search for blood within

We all need some mission, some star to guide our path
Some choose enlightenment while others prefer wrath
We need a code of honor to help us find our way
Regardless of your path this code will never let you stray

We are all the same
Just people with our passions and our shame
Trying hard to make a name
We all love, we all hate
We can't deny that this is not our fate
And it's never too late to try again
No, it's never too late

No, it's never too late
No, i's never too late
We are all the same

ANGEL

(written by Lauren Lapointe)

Sun slips behind the moon
You'll come out pretty soon
Smokin' cigarettes and chasin' dreams

I never see you hide your face
You are always full of grace
You are everything that you seem

You cast your eyes above
Take what's yours and still find love
Your heart is filled with light

Angel
Though you still have a broken wing
You are not afraid to sing
Angel
Through the dusky starlit sky
You are not afraid to fly

Your words are made of blood
And tears that are misunderstood
These fears that beckon in the night

But this life though it's not been long
Has been enough to make you strong
You won't go down without a fight

You cast your eyes above
Take what's yours and still find love
Your heart is filled with light

Angel
Though you still have a broken wing
You are not afraid to sing
Angel
Through the dusky starlit sky
You are not afraid to fly

And you will sing
You will sing
Angel
