Whole 04:03
"The Whole" Written by Jaclyn Shaw © March 2013 Two poles only come together when they shift So bring my head to the equator where my heart burns in the center You know you're really good at this Shifting the dualities and seeing the whole of me Your love activates the whole thing The whole thing You are the key Unlocking me whole Touch me so gentle you break me wide Open Wider Dripping so easily, this heart of me So sensually, the whole of me Two souls come together when they fit They say no fate is greater than When we really see each other Your lips speak as softly as they kiss The irony is the depth you bring sends me lightly drifting Touch me so gentle you break me wide Open Wider Dripping so easily, this heart of me So sensually, the whole of me

"Yearning and Pining" Written by Jaclyn Shaw © March 2013 He's got the world in a mysterious hold He wants to love her but he won't let go Once the sun sets, he's home free Cause darkness is a place he'd rather be Yearning and pining for the fruit of day How can he love her? Till the sun rises, and the gray dusk fades How can he love her so far away? He's got a thousand stories untold Each one never-ending, or his fate be sold A common twist repeats on this She has so many faces, but just one wish Yearning and pining for the fruit of day How can he love her? Till the sun rises, and the gray dusk fades How can he love her so far away? Yearning and pining for the fruit of day How can he love me? Till the sun rises, and the gray dusk fades How can he love me so far away?

Hey Joey 04:36
"Hey Joey" Written by Jaclyn Shaw © March 2013 Nothing is sacred no more My body defiled and rejected My health a stream of ranges My heart a fallen castle Embrace me in my weakness Tongues degrading and they're speaking easy You touch me as I'm falling A reward for past aggression Hey, Joey what you say The lover waits as while the sinner prays Won't you rest your hard head on my heart Falling like the rain As I try to save That part of you that calls my name You're castles resurrected Your silence burns your tongue Our eyes are hungry leaches Our bodies are tired vessels These paths are intertwined Crazed minds now loosely laced Setting ripples in still waters Making bounds and bourders Hey, Joey what you say The lover waits as while the sinner prays Won't you rest your hard head on my heart Falling like the rain As I try to save That part of you that calls my name It says hold on I can feel ya It says hold I can free your mind It says hold on There's still an angel in my heart Hey, Joey what you say The lover waits as while the sinner prays Won't you rest your hard head on my heart Falling like the rain As I try to save my peace again my peace again Hey, Joey What you say?

Words 03:51
"Words" Written by Jaclyn Shaw © March 2013 You said you'd never leave me  An abstract security  I once praised such spiritual things  A symbol of eternity  The hero never fades with whims and women  But I never saw the hero in your eyes  And I have no desire  For a love without a fire  Words, words, words  Are just sounds  A man who needs  to feed his greed  Is a liar after all  He denies the core of all his worth  An early death so grave  A lonely life with a bitter heart  And I have no desire  For a love without a fire  Words, words, words  Are just sounds  When will you learn to give?  When will you learn at all?  My compassion and concern never moved you  It never moved you  It never moved you at all  And I have no desire  For a love without a fire  Words, words, words

"Cry a Teardrop" Written by Jaclyn Shaw © March 2013 You sat in the middle of a venue that I used to play Waiting for both me and a reason to stay Searching for smooth skin to wrap yourself in You know you wore mine thin So cry A teardrop in my name Lie, with that girl you know It's all the same Cry me a tear Cry me a lake Swim to your limits Swim til you sink Will I sink to the bottom While you kick me away Become ash in your cloud As you ignite a new flame Ignite that bright torch For all the women you claim You know the whole game is lame So cry A teardrop in my name Lie, with that girl you know It's all the same Cry me a tear Cry me a lake Swim to your limits Swim til you sink Cry cry cry Cry cry cry Cry cry cry So cry A teardrop in my name Lie, with that girl you know It's all the same Cry me a tear Cry me a lake Swim to your limits Swim til you sink

Fool in Love 02:57
"Fool in Love" Written by Jaclyn Shaw © March 2013 You never fought for my love Even though I thought you were the one There's nothing more I give I gave to you Just like a fool A fool in love will try to prove Her strong emotions can change you And just like a fool in love misunderstood I did it all for a breakthrough You won't speak kindly to me, even though my love is what you seek There's nothing more you could choose You stay angry just like a fool A fool in love will try to prove His strong emotions can break you And just like a fool in love Misunderstood, he did it all for a breakthrough You're so foolish, love You're so foolish, love And I'm a fool in love will try to prove Her strong emotions can change you And just like a fool in love misunderstood I did it all for a breakthrough

"Darlin', Don't Fight Me" Written by Jaclyn Shaw © March 2013 I'm the one you've given to completely I'm the one you raise above this city And so I know, I can say just so gently There needs to be a change Come morning Darlin', Don't fight me Cause I'll win your love again Darlin', Don't fight me To break my heart's a sin You're the one who gambles all my money You're the one who drinks himself silly And so I know, I can say so gently There needs to be a change come morning Darlin', Don't fight me Cause I'll win your love again Darlin', Don't fight me To break my heart's a sin Come morning to my bedroom Won't you praise me like a queen Come morning I can be the candle in your night I can be the fortress in your fight I can be the one to make you right Here with me Here with me, darling Here with me Darlin', Don't fight me Cause I'll win your love again Darlin', Don't fight me To break my heart's a sin

Give To You 03:34
"Give to You" Written by Jaclyn Shaw © March 2013 These days I put up a fight Cause it's hard to trust with a past like mine But I had my eye on you too long Not to feel strong You make me want to give to you I want to give you all my love Place my faith in a Lord above I want to give to you You help me lift a weight or two of the same and the doubt I travel through You paint a country house in a windy June Children's laughter fills the room I want to give to you I want to give you all my love I want to place my faith in a lord a Would you give to me like I gave to you? Would you give it all? Like I gave to you? Would you give to me like I gave to you? Would you give it all? Like I gave to you... Give Give Give Give to you Only you Yeah Just us two I want to give it all Give it all Give it all, all, all, to you You're all I need to believe in Oh, you're my soul The more that I give The more I receive When I give to you I give it all to you
