Track Name: Whole
"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
Track Name: Yearning and Pining
"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?
Track Name: Hey Joey
"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?
Track Name: Words
"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 
Track Name: Cry a Teardrop
"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
Track Name: Fool in Love
"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
Track Name: Darlin' Don't (Fight Me)
"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
Track Name: Give To You
"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
