Track Name: Burnt
Burnt - Hailey Cramer

Like a grain of rice sitting in you hand (mmm)
You held my heart and made your demands
The leash was tight, like a choker chain
Gave you my all but it was all in vain
Must I get burnt to know it hurts (NO NO)
Must I get burnt to know it hurts (no no no no no no no no)

I held you up after you stood from your fall
My knees where cut while you stood tall
My shoulders hurt, from the weight of your world
Can’t win me back with your diamonds and pearls
Must I get burnt to know it hurts (NO NO)
Must I get burnt to know it hurts?

So come down come down
From your horse way up high
Put a coin in a bowl and shake it all about
Here’s a lesson from my father so let me bend you ear
What you get from that bowl is just what you put in
COME DOWN!

I’m off to the greener grass its where I came from
Till you swept me off my feet and put me on stone you know
I took, a chance, but then it was all romance
Till your mask came off and I got a glance
Oh, I don’t want my baby to be like you you you

So come down come down
From your horse way up high
Put a coin in a bowl and shake it all about
Here’s a lesson from my father so let me bend you ear
What you get from that bowl is just what you put in
COME DOWN!

Must I get burnt to know it hurts?
Must I get burnt to know it hurts?
Track Name: Water
WATER
Hailey Cramer

Confidence and it comes with a smile only gonna take you so many miles..
you know that
You have travelled down this road too much before only now you see the cracking floor
Use your body as a rod to reel them in
They’re flocking like flies but not for what’s within…
wonder
If they would all still be around when gravity takes your body down

(claps)
Oh oh oh oh oh----
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh---

Oh you found out about the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees but not that thing..called love
And you had to add another candle to your cake and then you found another mate but by the morning he was gone

(claps)
Hush now, hush now – drop that shovel down that hole
Hush now, hush now – digging down won’t get you out

Oh I can’t save you time and time again
I’ll take you to water but cannot make you drink
Oh I can save you time and time again
I’ll take you to water but cannot make you drink

(claps)
Oh oh oh oh oh----
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh---

See you make them feel like the only star in the sky but the moment you say bye there’s another twinkle in you eye
And you wonder why the issue of trust keeps poppin up
Like Jack you put him back and keep him brewing in his box

(claps)
Hush now, hush now – drop that shovel down that hole
Hush now, hush now – digging down won’t get you out

Oh I can’t save you time and time again
I’ll take you to water but cannot make you drink
Oh I can save you time and time again
I’ll take you to water but cannot make you drink

Take you take you take you take take
Take you take you take you take take
Track Name: Shoes
SHOES

Waiting for you is like
watching grass grow
rather tie a brick to my leg and try swimming

cast the net I go (i go)
to the ocean (i go)
but all I seem to get is scrapings
of what you could be

the potential I see in you
is like a foot in the snow sees a shoe
you could love me like you do
but the holes in you just like that shoe
wont doooooo wont dooooooo doooooo

you fell from your staged grace
into my empty space
you were the one I thought who'd come and drink my port
you'd leave your clothes and shoes (leave your clothes and shoe)
I'd clear a draw for you (clear a draw for you)
it's nice to have you here
but i wont be around to see your grey’s appear

been waiting here for you (so long)
have I just said to you (be gone)
been down this road before (you know)
and I know that time shown that this love just wont
doooooooooooooooooooo dooooooooooo
(while you're wondering and waiting I'm slowly fading)

I wont settle for whatever lands on my plate (ahhhhh)
with a plastic smile when I'm feeling shit say im great (ah ah ah)
he said she said "yeah I love you too"
when the chips are down I'll be there for you (ahhhhhh)
when I look to my side for my statue
you've crumble down and that just (that just that just)
no that just (that just that just)
wont dooooooooo




Wonder what I ‘ve missed
Too many boxes to tick
Have I set the bar so high only a dream could reach (only a dream could reach)
Moving on on our own
Should I settle or be alone
Perfection is impossible but a blind eye now will see later


been waiting here for you (so long)
have I just said to you (be gone)
been down this road before (you know)
and I know that time shown that this love just wont
doooooooooooooooooooo dooooooooooo

I wont settle for whatever lands on my plate (ahhhhh)
with a plastic smile when I'm feeling shit say im great (ah ah ah)
he said she said "yeah I love you too"
when the chips are down I'll be there for you (ahhhhhh)
when I look to my side for my statue
you've crumble down and that just (that just that just)
no that just (that just that just)
wont dooooooooo

I…. don’t want to settle for what's on my plate oh x 4
Track Name: Kids
Kids

Little one I’m sorry I broke a hold in the sky
I’d patch it up with my two hands if I, if I could
Little one I’m sorry I made the sun burn your face
I’d make it tame, just the same as I had
Little one I know you’re not here yet but I tried my best to you’ll never see a stain on this earth that I kept for you to clean up my mess

We are drinking from the same cup
So save some for the kids
Save some for the kids

(Ooooooooooo whaaaa oooo nanananan
Ooooooooooo whaaaa oooo )
This is the world I thought I knew
When the sun goes down I’d see the moon
But the filthy machine has caused a haze so it can’t be seen
Little one wont you follow me
And I’ll teach you to fish in the deep blue sea
So you can eat for more than a day when I pass away
COZ dust to dust and to dust I must returnest
Leave a trail of crumbs but not a footprint you’ll see
Coz all you should leave is a memory
all you should leave is a memory

We are drinking from the same cup same cup
So save some for the kids
save some for the kids Save some for the kids
We are drinking from the same cup same cup
So save some for the kids
save some for the kids Save some for the kids

No amount of money no a amount of money
No amount of money no a amount of money
No amount of money no a amount of money can stop this breed of man yeah he’d still the world in a can to you
X2

We might have to dance to make the rain come down
