SILENT HURRICANE
(written by Lauren Lapointe)

First time I saw you
Lighting up that room
Big guitar and an attitude
And everybody looked at you

You knew they were watching
You knew just what to say
I didn’t understand the game
That we were getting ready to play

You’re like a cold, cold sun
You’re like a dry, dry rain
You’re nothing that you seem to be
You are a silent hurricane

Because you are so charming
Because you shine so bright
Because it’s so exciting
To stand next to your light

I wanted to believe you
But your words they just weren’t right

You’re like a cold, cold sun
You’re like a dry, dry rain
You’re nothing that you seem to be
You are a silent hurricane

Now I watch for a warning
Like a cloud that looks too grey
But I can see the blue blue sky
Now your storm has blown away

You’re like a cold, cold sun
You’re like a dry, dry rain
You’re nothing that you seem to be
You are a silent hurricane

You’re like a cold, cold sun
You’re like a dry, dry rain
You’re nothing that you seem to be
You are a silent hurricane
You are a silent hurricane
You are a silent hurricane

SUPERHERO
(written by Lauren Lapointe)

Woke up this morning
Everything had changed
I was faster than a speeding bullet
Was I still the same

I wore a cape and had x-ray vision and sound
Buildings tall I could leap in one single bound
I was a superhero I just never knew ‘til now

Before the phone booth
I was a simple girl
I kept my superpowers
Hidden from the world

Now I wear a cape and have x-ray vision and sound
Buildings tall I can leap in one single bound
I am a superhero I just never knew ‘til now

And when I’m flying
Way up so high
I never dreamed that I would
Ever reach the sky

Now I wear a cape and have x-ray vision and sound
Buildings tall I can leap in one single bound
I am a superhero I just never knew ‘til now

So if you see me
Don’t be surprised
It’s no longer secret
My super disguise

SILVER COWBOY BOOTS
(written by Lauren Lapointe)

She thought she needed a cowboy
To sing her country songs
Thought she needed a harmony
To be strong

One day he rode away
There she stood alone
She blew away that dust he left
And realized she had grown

‘Cause she had silver cowboy boots and friends of gold
A Hummingbird guitar to play and a mandolin to hold
She had a heart of songs that she knew she had to sing
She had everything

She liked George and Tammy
Johnny and June
Dolly and Porter
Loretta and Conway too

But one voice can sing
Just as well as two
When Gram was gone too soon
She thought of Emmylou

She had silver cowboy boots and friends of gold
A Hummingbird guitar to play and a mandolin to hold
She had a heart of songs that she knew she had to sing
She had everything

One day she rose and she knew that she was fine
Those silver cowboy boots began to shine

Then she wrote that song
About a rodeo
The one where the cowgirl learns
It’s always been her show

And she had silver cowboy boots and friends of gold
A Hummingbird guitar to play and a mandolin to hold
She had a heart of songs that she knew she had to sing
She had everything
She had everything

I BELIEVE
(written by Lauren Lapointe)

I believe in the earth and sky
I believe in dark and light
I believe that if we tried
I believe we all could fly
I believe, oh I believe

I believe in the sound of the rain
And I believe we can love again
I believe in many names
I believe we’re all the same
I believe, oh I believe

Wouldn’t it be nice
If we could all see
We’re not so different
You and me
I believe, I believe

I believe in the moon and stars
I believe in shiny red cars
I believe in naming guitars
I believe you gotta follow your heart
I believe, oh I believe

Wouldn’t it be nice
If we could all see
We’re not so different
You and me
I believe, I believe

I believe in every dream
I believe in every being
I believe that we can’t see

All the things that we believe
I believe, oh I believe
I believe, oh I believe…
I believe

HEROINE
(written by Lauren Lapointe)

I’m gonna ride up on a white steed
I’m gonna swoop down and save me
I’m gonna take me places I’ve never been
Wine and dine and tuck me in

I’m gonna write me a poem, sing me a song
Tell my own fortune and read my palm
I’m gonna buy me roses and chocolate too
Only share if I want to

These days I’m only saving me
I am the princess who stands on her own two feet
And I don’t need rescuing
It’s my fairy tale and I’m the heroine

I’m gonna tell me a joke and laugh so long
Take me for a walk out by the pond
Smile at my reflection that I see
My best friend is staring back at me

These days I’m only saving me
I am the princess who stands on her own two feet
And I don’t need rescuing
It’s my fairy tale and I’m the heroine

My prince he walks right beside me
Hand in hand we slay the dragons equally

These days I’m only saving me
I am the princess who stands on her own two feet
And I don’t need rescuing
It’s my fairy tale and I’m the heroine
I'm the heroine
I'm the heroine

SCOTLAND TONIGHT
(written by Lauren Lapointe)

You can get there however you like
Me, I will travel by cover of night
I hear the bagpipes and I smell the sea
Follow the faeries and there you’ll find me

I dream of castles and things
Old ancient clans and warlords and kings
Surely I danced here in some other life
Now I’ll return to dance by the ghost light
I’ll be in Scotland tonight

I will take the high or low road
Tomorrow it’s off to Loch Lomond I’ll go
Maybe a mermaid or selkie I’ll see
Maybe I’ll realize that they’re just like me

I dream of castles and things
Old ancient clans and warlords and kings
Surely I danced here in some other life
Now I’ll return to dance by the ghost light
I’ll be in Scotland tonight

Who could leave this land of magic and mystery
How could I get so far

I hear the sigh of the wisp in the trees
Do I dare follow to places it leads
I saw the standing circle of stones
Maybe I’ll find that they were my home

I dream of castles and things
Old ancient clans and warlords and kings
Surely I danced here in some other life
Now I’ll return to dance by the ghost light
I’ll be in Scotland tonight
I’ll be in Scotland tonight

DUSTY TIRED ANGEL

(written by Lauren Lapointe & Taylor Martin)

Well I grew up the hard way
Without a helping hand
I tried to do the right thing
'Cause I’m an honest man
Never had much money
To give to the church
It may not make God happy
But I couldn’t find the work

When the rich and the famous
Get judged in the end
They'll play trumpets and harps
And a few violins
The best I can hope for
When my time here is spent
Is a dusty tired angel
And an old mandolin

The first time that I saw her
She was dressed all in white
The preacher’s daughter Mary
I would never be her type
I knew that I would love her
‘Til the very day I died
But I never ever told her
And she never was my bride

When the rich and the famous
Get judged in the end
They'll play trumpets and harps
And a few violins
The best I can hope for
When my time here is spent
Is a dusty tired angel
And an old mandolin

Over the years my hands got harder
And my skin has turned brown
And my sister’s son Jimmy
Says I always wear a frown

One day I got a letter
Mary’d found a wealthy man
She wondered why I stayed alone
She’d never understand

When the rich and the famous
Get judged in the end
They'll play trumpets and harps
And a few violins
The best I can hope for
When my time here is spent
Is a dusty tired angel
And an old mandolin

The best I can hope for
When my time here is spent
Is a dusty tired angel
And an old mandolin

RATTLESNAKE MOUNTAIN ROAD

(written by Lauren Lapointe & Taylor Martin)

Rattlesnake Mountain Road
That's where I gotta go
Got a list of things I need
To sanctify my soul

Well the devil he told me girl
Don't you tell no one you know
Gonna break the vow I made to him
On Rattlesnake Mountain Road

Rattlesnake Mountain Road
That's where I gotta go
Gonna sanctify my soul
On Rattlesnake Mountain Road

Well the list it ain't too long
And I'll tell you how it goes
It was given to me on an old jaw bone
On Rattlesnake Mountain Road

Get a rockin chair of silk
And a cradle made of stone
Bring a baby's cry on the first full moon
To Rattlesnake Mountain Road

Rattlesnake Mountain Road
That's where I gotta go
Gonna sanctify my soul
On Rattlesnake Mountain Road

Well there ain’t no thing as a silken chair
Or a cradle made of stone
And the babes were quiet on the first full moon
On Rattlesnake Mountain Road

So I went back down the holler
With a darkness on my soul
The devil smiled and he said my child
It's Rattlesnake Mountain Road

Rattlesnake Mountain Road
Is your eternal home
Your soul is mine, you're left behind
On Rattlesnake Mountain Road

Rattlesnake Mountain Road
That's where I gotta go
Gonna sanctify my soul
On Rattlesnake Mountain Road
Rattlesnake Mountain Road
Rattlesnake Mountain Road...

THE GHOST OF ELVIS
(written by Lauren Lapointe)

Late at night when the whole world dreams
She hears the ghost of Elvis singing her to sleep
He says “baby, come and sing with me”
She says “oh Elvis I’ve been waiting for your company”

Every day it’s just the same old thing
Cookin’ and a’cleanin’ and nobody listening
She says “maybe I’d like to dress up right
Put on my sequins and dance with Elvis tonight”

The ghost of Elvis likes to sing the blues
The ghost of Elvis and those blue suede shoes
He says “baby come to the jailhouse with me
You’ve been down at the heartbreak hotel hangin’ with the lonely”

She went to Graceland just to see where he died
She lay on his gravestone and oh how she cried
He said “don’t cry baby I’m not so far
When you look at the nighttime sky I’ll be that rhinestone star”

The ghost of Elvis likes to sing the blues
The ghost of Elvis and those blue suede shoes
He says “baby you know I won’t be cruel”
She says “oh Elvis won’t you be my hound dog too”

The ghost of Elvis likes to sing the blues
The ghost of Elvis and those blue suede shoes
He says “baby stay in the jailhouse with me
You’ve been down at the heartbreak hotel hangin’ with the lonely
You’ve been down at the heartbreak hotel hangin’ with the lonely”

SIT HOME AND CRY

(written by Lauren Lapointe)

They say it’s time to dry all my tears
And get up and put on a smile
But I won’t be wearing nothin’ but pride
‘Cause I’d rather sit home and cry

I’d rather sit home and cry
I’d rather stay here than tell you goodbye
Now all I got here is nothin’ but time
And I’d rather sit home and cry

Remember the way that you looked at me
Oh I believed you were mine
But the words that you whispered they don’t mean a thing
So I’m gonna sit home and cry

I’d rather sit home and cry
I’d rather stay here than tell you goodbye
Now all I got here is nothin’ but time
And I’d rather sit home and cry

I’d rather sit home and cry
I’d rather stay here than tell you goodbye
Now all I got here is nothin’ but time
And I’d rather sit home and cry
And I’d rather sit home and cry

WHEN THE WIND BLOWS

(written by Lauren Lapointe)

When the wind blows I will follow
Where it leads I will go
When the wind blows I’ll be ready
I will heed its' gentle call

When the dawn breaks I will waken
I will rise like the sun
When the dawn breaks I’ll be standing
I’ll reach out my arms to everyone

Oh wind oh blow
Where it leads me I will go

When the rain falls I will listen
To its sad and mournful cry
I will not turn from its sorrow
I will sing its lonely lullaby

Oh wind oh blow
Where it leads me I will go

As I sit in the silence
I can hear, I will know
When the wind will blow

When the sea weeps for the lover
Whose last star has disappeared
When the sea weeps I will holler
I will taste its bitter tears

Oh wind oh blow
Where it leads me I will go

As I sit in the silence
I can hear, I will know
When the wind will blow

Oh wind oh blow
Where it leads me I will go
Oh wind oh blow
Where it leads I will go

IF ALL THE FLOWERS WERE THE SAME

(written by Lauren Lapointe)

As I walk through the garden filled with flowers
So many I can’t name
I drink in their beauty and I am grateful
The flowers are not all the same

‘Cause I love the roses and I love the daisies
Some love chrysanthemums
They’re all so different and all so lovely
How could I choose only one

If all the flowers were the same
Would all our colors look like grey
No more yellow no more blue
Azaleas and lilies wouldn’t bloom
Spring would be so plain
If all the flowers were the same

What if the violets woke one day and said
We have had enough
We won’t share our garden with other flowers
Unless they look just like us

If all the flowers were the same
Would all our colors look like grey
No more yellow no more blue
Azaleas and lilies wouldn’t bloom
Spring would be so plain
If all the flowers were the same

So I asked the bees and the birds
What kind of flower did they prefer
They laughed as they flew on by
“We love them all” I heard them cry

If all the flowers were the same
Would all our colors look like grey
No more yellow no more blue
Azaleas and lilies wouldn’t bloom
Spring would be so plain
If all the flowers were the same
If all the flowers were the same
