Track Name: Bad Apples
All these bad apples
Falling of all these trees
I wish that they were lemons
So I'd have something to squeeze

The bad thing about apples
Is that they have seeds
To make more bad apples
To make more bad apple trees

Oh I picked you 'cause you looked good to eat
But you left me bitter, definitely not sweet
'Cause you, you've done an evil thing
Yes you've gone and you've poisoned me
You, led me to believe
That the fruit, the fruit was good on your tree
But all it ever did was make me feel guilty

Oh I don't care if you bake it or you spice it
You slice it or you dice it
I don't care about your leaves
Your fruit is bad anybody can see
I don't care about those things
You'll never give me what I need

Oh I picked you 'cause you looked good to eat
But you left me bitter, definitely not sweet
'Cause you, you've done an evil thing
Yes you've gone and you've poisoned me
You, led me to believe
That the fruit, the fruit was good on your tree
But all it ever did was make me feel guilty

It's true that the apple does not fall far from the tree
I just wish that your bad apple hadn't fallen in front of me
Track Name: Forget Me Not
I stand in a field with both hands raised
I need to feel some love and catch some grace
I sing in the day at the top of my lungs
Hoping you'll hear an echo of my love

My soul has gotten dirty from the world
They tried to tell me that I wasn't your little girl
Like a pearl at the bottom of the sea
Is the treasure that I've found in you and me

Oh hear me now, Oh forget me not

I stand in the distance but you still call my name
I'm happier with a silhouette I say
The closer you get the more that you will see
Oh I've got to try and hide my mess all my ugly

I stand before you naked
I can't lie or try to cover who I am
The skin that was broke touches my hand
You said you love me more than all the grains of sand

Oh hear me now, forget me not

I'm nailed beside you on the cross
You said you had to save what was lost
Well I'm lost and in need of some saving
Then you looked at me and said you'll see me in heaven

Oh I'll stand before you one day
Will you look at my soul and say
I knew you and we walked as one
Or depart from me you stranger and unknown one
Track Name: I Love You
We built a fire you and me
Built with the stick of desire
And the flame of eternity
You kept me warm many winters untold
But come summer I run from the fire and your side
Ran to the hills with my stubbornness and my pride

Is this who you really want to be?
You said to me
Who's shoes are you still trying to fit in?
Who's battles are you still trying to win?
What crosses are you still carrying?
What burdens are you still burying?
Oh my soul is so tired of feeling uninspired
You've got to light the fire
Then you say, you say

I love you, I love you

Though that I'd be nobler but apparently
that's just no me
Thought that I'd be braver, but apparently
I can't see what's in front of me

The road before me is laden with sorrows and mistakes that I've made
And I can't look into the mirror today

Then you say, you say
I love you, I love you
Track Name: Little Girl
ittle girl you're brilliant like a pearl
Iridescently beautiful
And all the lines keep you outside
But you were meant to live
Outside of their walls

Little girl beware of the world
They'll tell you lies, all of the time
But there only lies, so dry your eyes

Little girl you're beautiful like a secret world
Full of waterfalls and rainbows
But all the sticks and stones
Won't leave you alone
They make you feel so ugly
But you're not, just trust me

Little girl your song is like the rain
Washes everything, nothing's ever the same
But everyone tries to steal your song
Playing parts and notes, that don't belong
This, is your song

Little girl your eyes are like the spring
When flowers bloom, and bluebirds sing
But they took your heart,and they took your soul
But you were begging for, a little control
Where, is my soul?

This little girl she was made to sing
Of all her hopes, and all her dreams
Please don't, cut her wings
Track Name: Blink of an Eye
The sunflowers
They lined her way that day
And smiled at the sky
As the birds flew on their way

Her hair of gold
Was a golden crown
To match the petals found
Now little girl
Lifeless child
Lay on the ground

In the blink, blink, blink of an eye
In the blink, blink, blink of an eye
Oh your soul passes by
In the blink, blink, blink of an eye

Fifty-one years is just never quite enough
Fifty-one years to walk to crawl, and yes to fall
Fifty-one years with fifty-one tears, and fifty-one fears
Then one day that beeping heart it don't beep no more

In the still, still, still of the night
In the still, still, still of the night
Towards the tunnel of light
In the still, still, still of the night

Hate to be the bearer of the inevitable
But we all must go
Yes we all will go
Yes we all will go
In the day or the night
In the dark or the light

In the blink, blink, blink of an eye
In the blink, blink, blink of an eye
Oh your soul passes by
In the blink, blink, blink of an eye

In the still, still, still of the night
In the still, still, still of the night
Towards the tunnel of light
In the still, still, still of the night

Are you ready to die?
In the blink, blink, blink of the night

Am I ready to die?
In the still, still, still of the night
