Album Lyrics

 

Try to Love 

 

Light as a feather / I outsmart your grip / Can't afford to stay / Found til' I'm lost / Here til' I'm gone

We tend to pull the wheel before the horse / Think we know more / I've seen it before 

I want to try to love / I want to love / I try to want to love

Try as I might words start to slip / Still I don't know what to say / Found til' I'm lost / Here til' I'm gone 

 But you can't make me stay
We tend to pull the wheel before the horse / Think we know more / I've seen it before 

I want to try to love / I want to love / I try to want to love

We tend to pull the wheel before the horse / Think we know more / I've seen it before 

 

Alien 

 

You don't have to play the part / You don't have to make it up on the spot

Not yet convinced and I caught you in a bold lie / You tend to talk an awful lot

You don't have to fix it / You think you're winning but you're high enough to miss it 

Deflecting your gaze we walk on through unseen / Afraid you might call us disgraced

Oh have you ever looked at your reflection / It's not a physical one but a push and pull / Can always tell when it's a fake 

But you don't have claim over me anymore / We're aliens in the street

We'll listen once you capture our attention / But we live on in this alien condition / This alien condition

This us fighting the good fight / We change shapes we disappear we dissipate / This us hiding out of sight

Listen up and feel the pulse pumpin' through your veins / It was liquid but ours is thicker now / But a heart's still made to love

Will we find ourselves a new addiction / Will we finally live up to perfection
But you don't have claim over me anymore / We're aliens in the street

We'll listen once you capture our attention / But we live on in this alien condition / This alien condition

This alien condition

 

Like a Hex 

 

(Remember when we used to find our joy in the moonlight / A fool am I to think I'd die first in line with you beside me)

Swing sets at night / We picked a star and it was ours / Where will I go if you go

Late talks are fine, but words are never enough to describe you boy / Is there a point in even trying

(Would it be fine if you and I tried to go at the same time / Would it be fine)

Tell me I was right to get it all out in the open / Would I wished I'd never loved or would I fight to rise above

Or would I leave it all behind or just live in the moment

Cast upon me like a hex and I'm not witless so I know what's coming / And you wrecked me

Cast upon me like a hex and I'm not witless  / No, I'm not witless (yeah)

Oh would I do it again / Would I do as before / I don't think I could lick at these wounds alone

And would I still hurt you / Is this a warnin' or a war 

Is it better you're gone / But you're not gone / But the voice in my head don't know 

Oh I think the world needs to know not to waste in love

(Remember when we used to find our joy in the moonlight)

We picked a star and it was ours 

(Would it be fine if you and I tried to go at the same time / Would it be fine)

I found love but tell me was it hopeless

 

Cast upon me like a hex and I'm not witless so I know what's coming / And you wrecked me

Cast upon me like a hex and I'm not witless  so I know what's coming (I'm not witless, yeah)

 

 

Play With Fire

 

Well I'm plagued with worry so don't fault me, I'm trying to fall asleep / But I'll see you in the morning baby

I'm far too weak to get a grip on it but all I need is not to get sick, you'll see 

Hold hands and walk the water with me

(Look at me, I'm in the thick of it)

You better not tell me "I'm sorry, you don't look so good"

You're better off callin' on me when I'm in health

I wanna take the night back / I wanna play with fire and dance on hot coals til' we die or you draw the line

I wanna risk and climb high / I wanna play with fire

I wanna play with fire

You don't need another whiner /  You don't need a silver linin' / For your own sake I'd take off

My eyes are liars and my blood's on fire but you and me can cool off in the water (baby)

You better not tell me "I'm sorry, you don't look so good"

You're better off callin' on me when I'm in health

(Look at me I'm in the thick of it / Can you look at me / look, I'm gettin sick of it)

I wanna take the night back / I wanna play with fire and dance on hot coals til' we die or you draw the line

I wanna risk and climb high 

I wanna take the night back / I wanna play with fire and dance on hot coals til' we die or you draw the line

I wanna risk and climb high / I wanna play with fire

I wanna play with fire

(Look at me I'm in the thick of it / Can you look at me / look, I'm gettin sick of it)

 

 

Shadows

 

They say that I'm too cynical, that I don't know the whole

That there's one way, there's no grey and there's no room to grow / Just do as you're told

Some days I tend to misbehave / But others seem to go my way

Trying to feel it and be it  / I can almost see it / Don't you hate it when you want God, but the devil's in the details

Lost in thought / Staring at the shadows on my bedroom wall

Leave me to rest / Wishing I could get the lead out

I'm one foot out the door (weepin' and kickin' and screamin')
Lost in thought / Staring at the shadows on my bedroom wall

Some days I like to get away / But others think I'm wrapped in flames
Trying to feel it and be it  / I can almost see it / Don't you hate it when you want God, but the devil's in the details

(Show up where's that smile?  What's the matter, don't you like wishin' you could cry at the refrain line)

Lost in thought / Staring at the shadows on my bedroom wall

Leave me to rest / Wishing I could get the lead out

I'm one foot out the door (weepin' and kickin' and screamin')
Lost in thought / Staring at the shadows on my bedroom wallI'm one foot out the door (weepin' and kickin' and screamin')

Lost in thought / Staring at the shadows on my bedroom wall

 

 

Special Thanks

 

 

This album wouldn’t be possible without the love and support of so many people in my life. 

To my family, thank you for pushing me to pursue music, and for being my biggest fan. To my friends, 

thank you for cheering me on and keeping me sane during the highs and 

lows of this process. Special thanks to Clay Bolen for lending me gear,

and to Ron Dazo for being a true friend (and for all the raunchy nonsense).

 

Most of all, thank you to Luc, my true love, for encouraging me throughout the whole process, 

for playing guitar on a few songs,

for taking the dog out for walks so that I could track vocals and keep working, 

and most of all for loving me unconditionally.

I love you.

- Robyn
