Track Name: The Best of You (ft. Jason Eskridge)
The Best of You
By K. Armstrong and D. Willis

Wake up with the rising sun
Stretching out your days just begun
Yesterday you kinda came undone
they got you again, they got you again

Now usually you count to ten
take a really big deep breathe in
Can’t be everyday that you win
When they get you again, get you again

Ooooooo, You’ll see. Everyday’s an opportunity
Ohhhhhhh oooo, stay true. Don’t let the rest get the best of you.

Happy with the shoes your in
Walking with a lift in your chin
All that you can do is just grin
When they get you again, get you again

Oooooooo, You’ll see. Everyday’s an opportunity.
Oooohhh Oooooo, Stay true. Don’t let the rest get the best of you.

Keepin’ it together when they try to tear you down.
Let them get lost you, you know where they can be found
Let them get it wrong you know they’re never gonna get straight
Let them carry on because your haters gonna hate

Ooooooo, You’ll see. Everyday’s an opportunity.
Oooohhhh Oooo, Stay true. Don’t let the rest get the best of you
Track Name: Look What Your Heart Did
Look what your heart did

Chorus-
Look what your heart got you into again
Look what your heart got you into again

v1
Your first impression aint the last time
That love will lead you down a long line
Of failed decisions based on dreamy eyes
You keep on fallen for that same disguise

Chorus-
Look what your heart got you into again
Look what your heart got you into again

V2
Just when your in the path to finding love within
Cupid draws his bow and pulls you in)
Fighting a war you thought you'd already won
Look what your heart done done

Chorus-
Look what your heart got you into again
Look what your heart got you into again

V3
Just mind your days and love the lonely nights
Someday soon your gonna get it right
Look for reflections of the love you send
That's your moment to jump right in

Chorus-
Look what your heart got you into again
Look what your heart got you into again

Bridge-
You're always falling for it
That same old lifeless love pit
Visions get all distorted
Look at what you foolish heart did

Quick sand you're sinking in it
Deep down and drowning in it
Rewind to the beginning
Look at what your reckless heart did
Track Name: The Ride
The Ride
Kyshona Armstrong & Connor Pledger

I’ve been staring at the ceiling lately
Lord knows I’ve got too much on my mind
I can’t shake this feeling maybe
Maybe I’m getting left behind

Everybody’s out there trying to cut a deal
we’re all just spinning on the same damn wheel
We’re all knocking trying to open closed doors

Chorus:
When I hear that darkness calling
I open my eyes and I see the light
One day the doors will open wide
“Til then I need to stop and enjoy the ride

Well this hustle and bustles driving everybody crazy
Slow down or the world may pass you by
When you winning and grinning they yelling “Don’t forget to pay me”
Can’t keep it if you get it even if you try

Everybody’s out there trying to cut a deal
We’re all just spinning on the same damn wheel
We’re all knocking trying to open closed doors

Chorus:
When I hear that darkness calling
I open my eyes and I see the light
One day the doors will open wide
“Til then I need to stop and enjoy the ride
Track Name: Lonely
Lonely
K. Armstrong/J. Bostic

Here we are again
Holdin’ the space we’re in
I keep wishin’ for someone or something
To come and whisk you away

You’ve been sneakin’ in every night
To spoon feed me your empty lies

CHORUS:
Lonely why do you haunt me, taunt me like you do
No matter where I go, You’re there like a shadow
Lonely, why don’t you leave me alone

You got me on a leash
But I’m ‘bout to break free
I told you once, I wont tell you again
Cause I’m tired of beggin’

Pack your bags and walk right out that door
You can take the pain you left me, cause I don’t need this anymore

CHORUS:
Lonely why do you haunt me, taunt me like you do
No matter where I go, You’re there like a shadow
Lonely, why don’t you leave me alone

Bridge:
Oh and I’ll admit, I held you close when I was desperate
It was foolish, but I let you in

CHORUS:
Lonely why do you haunt me, taunt me like you do
No matter where I go, You’re there like a shadow
Lonely, why don’t you leave me alone
Track Name: Do Nothin'
Do Nothing
by K. Armstrong and J. Bostic

The deeper I get, the softer the fall
I do it all
The harder the fight, the stronger the call
I’m breaking walls

Passion isn’t for the faint of heart
I walk the wire even in the dark
I do what I like, been criticized
I know I could

Chorus:
Do nothing, Say nothing, Be nothing
People leave you alone
Hear nothing, feel nothing, see nothing
let them lay down their stones
I know you want to spread your wings and fly
Know that the vultures’ gonna eat you alive
Do nothing, say nothing, be nothing
People will leave you alone

People may say tragedy waits
But oh no, it don’t
I stay in my lane, not taking the bait
I’m out on my own
I’m like an angel with my wings on fire
Tugging on my halo only takes me hire
I do what I want, call it my fault
But I know I can

Chorus:
Do nothing, Say nothing, Be nothing
People leave you alone
Hear nothing, feel nothing, see nothing
let them lay down their stones
I know you want to spread your wings and fly
Know that the vultures’ gonna eat you alive
Do nothing, say nothing, be nothing
People will leave you alone

Bridge-
Don’t you want a little taste?

I see your fear keeps getting in your way
Shake it up, don’t take it straight
Let it burn, let it ache

Chorus-
Come on and
do something, say something, be something
Do what you want
Hear something, feel something , see something
I know you want to spread your wings and fly
Don’t let the vultures eat you alive
You can do something, say something, be something
People will leave you alone
Track Name: Exorcist
Exorcist/Haunting Me

There’s Gun medal blue on the walls in the room where we used to sleep
Keeps comin’ on through no matter how many coats of white I paint
There’s a thick smell of smoke in the place where your clothes used to hang that wont go away
There’s a ring on the dining room table, where you’re glass of whiskey stayed

Chorus-
Why are you hauntin’ me
Whether I’m awake or fast asleep
What do you want from me
Hasn’t the ghost of you love, taken more than enough
Come on and let me be
I’m ready to move on
Why are you hauntin’ me?
Why are you hauntin’….
Why are you hauntin’ me?

Every creak in the floor, every knock at the door makes my heart skip a beat
Baby I swear, for a moment you’re there and on the walls I see your shadow creep
When the wind starts to blow theres a chill from the cold and I can almost feel your touch
Never had the time to give me, now your memories giving me to much

CHORUS-
Why are you hauntin’ me
Whether I’m awake or fast asleep
What do you want from me
Hasn’t the ghost of you love, taken more than enough
Come on and let me be
I’m ready to move on
Why are you hauntin’ me?
Why are you hauntin’….
Why are you hauntin’ me?

BRIDGE-
I need an exorcist, All out of patience
Time to let go of this, I can’t take it

Chorus
Why are you hauntin’ me
Whether I’m awake or fast asleep
What do you want from me
Hasn’t the ghost of you love, taken more than enough
Come on and let me be
I’m ready to move on
Why are you hauntin’ me?
Why are you hauntin’….
Why are you hauntin’ me?

BRIDGE-
I need an exorcist (for this), All out of patience
Come on and let me be, I can’t take it
I need an exorcist (for this), All out of patience
Time to let go of it, I can’t take it

Questions, so many questions I’m a vagabond of the wilderness

Ooooooo blinded by the darkness, tryna feel my way through this

Track Name: Burdens Down
Burdens Down
Jenn Bostic/Kyshona Armstrong

Verse:
As I walk to the river, my knees start to quiver
Is there enough water in the world to wash me clean
My heart starts to racin’, all the demons I’ve been chasin’
They tell me that I’m not the kind to be set free

Prechorus:
Lookin’ for grace in a graveyard
Findin’ the light can be so hard

Chorus:
I’ve been under it, I’ve been over it
Oh I’ve hit rock bottom -mmm
You can crawl through the dark and lose sight of it all
Or you can lay your burdens down

Verse 2:
I feel the winds are changin’
My worries get to fadin’
As I stand on the rock that’s been tryin’ to pull me down
I’m done with the hate crimes
To my soul I’ve been unkind
The goodness in me that was lost has now been found

Prechorus:
I’ll leave the chains in the graveyard
I’ll take the light and the new start

Chorus:
I’ve been under it, I’ve been over it
Oh I’ve hit rock bottom -mmm
You can crawl through the dark and lose sight of it all
Or you can lay your burdens down

Bridge
I’m gonna take that rock, throw it in the river gonna lay my burdens down.
Track Name: Love Has Got Me Here
Love Has Got Me Here

It seems like yesterday I was on my own
I was lost and wondering which way to go

Then you came and changed my heart and you helped me see
the beautiful i couldn’t find inside of me

One look and you set me free

CHORUS-
Held on to the darkness and regrets
Now I watch them disappear
Done with all the heartache and mistakes
letting go of all my fears
What was I hiding from
Thought I was the only one
Got the sunshine and I’m alright
knowing love has got me here

Everybody’s got a story that needs to be told
It’s hard to go against the wind and stand on your own

If you just believe in the fire within
the beautiful inside of you will rise in the end

Trust me Ive stood where you stand

CHORUS-
Held on to the darkness and regrets
Now I watch them disappear
Done with all the heartache and mistakes
letting go of all my fears
What was I hiding from
Thought I was the only one
Got the sunshine and I’m alright
knowing love has got me here

Bridge:
I’ll never go back, I’ll never go back to the way I used to be

CHORUS-
When I held on to the darkness and regrets
Now I watch them disappear
Done with all the heartache and mistakes
letting go of all my fears
What was I hiding from
Thought I was the only one
Got the sunshine and I’m alright
knowing love has got me here
