LYRICS

1. PUZZLE PIECES

Oftentimes late as I try to sleep

I can’t shake these memories

No I can’t shake these memories

It’s like trying to shake down leaves off of springtime trees

You say something clever, cleverer than it had to be

You and me together, I picked your lock but was not the key

And then you picked me, and you set me free

Even though I didn’t want to be

We didn’t fit, like pieces of a puzzle that fool you for a second I reckoned

We’d work out together, but forevers turned to nevers

You ruined it, you showed me when you told me our edges didn’t match up quite right

In the shadows at night it wasn’t plain to see that you were never cut out for me

Can’t resist to think of you, I don’t even pretend to try (no I don’t)

I still find myself saying good, we didn’t finish saying goodbye (goodbye)

Unrequited and unsaid, there are so many things we didn’t do (never ever ever ever)

I deny it and hide it but instead, I’d rather tell you the truth (never ever ever ever)

That I think we had a shot, I feel bitter and not

That if we found ourselves in the same plot, I’d be caught

We didn’t fit, like pieces of a puzzle that fool you for a second I reckoned

We’d work out together, but forevers turned to nevers

You ruined it, you showed me when you told me our edges didn’t match up quite right

In the shadows at night it wasn’t plain to see that you were never cut out for me

Please don’t mistake me or take me for one of the common fools

Know I’d never intentionally break any hearts or any rules

You meant more to me, you kept more of me than I can express or admit

It’s such a shame you give yourself all the blame when we both made such a mess of it

Baby don’t go, I’ll fall apart

You’ve still got pieces of my heart

I’m begging you, just think this through, please don’t go

Baby don’t go, I’ll fall apart

You’ve still got puzzle pieces of my heart

I’m begging you, just think this through, don’t go

We didn’t fit, like pieces of a puzzle that fool you for a second I reckoned

We’d work out together, but forevers turned to nevers

You ruined it, you showed me when you told me our edges didn’t match up quite right

In the shadows at night it wasn’t plain to see that you were never cut out for me

Cut it out, cut it out, no no you were never cut out for me

2. OAK LEAF

Seasons are changing, I can taste it in the rain

And the wind that whispers down your autumn sky

Bringing cold and bleak of night and warmer light to say goodbye

Real love is natural like the phases of the moon

And the tide running to the open sea

So I stand tall and long and still

Knowing you will come back to me

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when I’ll leave you

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when we’ll fade away

You say it’s over, sonata rondo so to speak

And your song it echoes down the stormy shore

But tides will rip and sunbeams burn ‘til you return to me once more

My roots run deeper, far below to waters pure

And springs that murmur songs as old as life

Seasons change and I’ll still be here

Waiting near to be your wife

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when I’ll leave you

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when we’ll fade away

I’ll fade away, but baby not today

We’ll fade away, but baby not today

No baby, not today

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when I’ll leave you

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when we’ll fade away

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when I’ll leave you

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when we’ll fade away

But baby, not today

3. REVERB RADIO

Every day we’re twisting up the volume

My little hum is building to a buzz

Solo nights all I do is dream a song of you

Where we swing upon the chord that ever was

Our amplifier, let’s drive it ’til we sing

I echo you, your loving radio

Soul station in the night

I echo you, the highest frequency you know

Dashboard dial bright

Audience is missing what we’re playing

Only we know there is no perfect third

Don’t listen to our vetted verse they’re slaying

Our poetry is writ in wet not word

Our desire, let’s drive it ‘til we sing

I echo you, your loving radio

Soul station in the night

I echo you, the highest frequency you know

Dashboard dial bright tonight

We can’t explain it, contain it or

Modulate a thing

I never fake it, please don’t break it

Evermore, nevermore, ever, ever, nevermore

Nevermore was spoken by the raven

Lust that lingered longing for Lenore

But I mean never more to be without your

Scatenato riven to my core

Not a lyre, let’s drive it ‘til we sing

I echo you, your loving radio

Soul station in the night

I echo you, the highest frequency you know

Dashboard dial bright, dashboard dial bright …

4. EVER AFTER

After the fall I couldn’t stand to be alone anymore

After it all I wanted something different from before

I started out feeling free, but I ended up feeling trapped in me

After the fall I wanted someone to love me for me

After the winter I still hadn’t found you, yet

Still a beginner, I learned to forgive but not to forget

I started out looking in my past, but it caught up with me pretty fast

After the winter I wanted someone to love me for me

After the snow I wanted to know there was somebody for me

When we met, I felt like I remembered you already

Like we were lovers before in a classic film, going steady

Things just clicked, a diamond in the rough I picked you out

From the crowd, and you picked me

After the spring I was a cynic but still convinced

You kiss a lot of frogs before you lock lips with your charming prince

I started out an epic fail, but ended up living in a fairytale

After the spring I found someone who loved me for me

When we met, I felt like I remembered you already

Like we were lovers before in a classic film, going steady

Things just clicked, a diamond in the rough I picked you out

From the crowd, and you picked me

Never ever, ever, ever after

Never ever, ever, ever after

After fall, after winter, after spring

Never knew I’d fall, after winter, after spring

When we met, I felt like I remembered you already

Like we were lovers before in a classic film, going steady

Things just clicked, a diamond in the rough I picked you out

From the crowd, and you picked me

5. BURN

You were always a quick chat, never a sit-down-and-talk

With no warning you left me at the corner of walk-don’t-walk

And now I don’t know where to turn

And now I don’t know how to feel, all I can do is burn, burn, burn

Burn, burn, burn

You were always making trouble, never could sit still

Maybe the saddest part of all is I think you never will, I know you never will

And now I don’t know where to turn

And now I don’t know how to feel, all I can do is burn, burn

Burn every picture, burn every ticket stub

Burn every reminder we were ever in love

It’d be easier to say it was nothing, but the ashes tell the truth

I can’t burn away the scraps of love I’m still clinging to

In another time zone, in another place you’re charming some other girl like me

She’s intoxicated by the smile on your face, but she’ll sober up you’ll see

And then she won’t know where to turn

And then she won’t know how to feel, all she can do is burn, burn

Burn every picture, burn every ticket stub

Burn every reminder we were ever in love

It’d be easier to say it was nothing, but the ashes tell the truth

I can’t burn away the scraps of love I’m still clinging to

If not by fire, maybe by rain

If at first I don’t succeed I’ll try, try again

If I can’t drown desire, I’ll bury it alive

I gotta let it all out from where it’s buried deep inside

If I can’t drown desire, I’ll bury it alive

I gotta let it all out, I gotta burn it all down, burn, burn

Burn every picture, burn every ticket stub

Burn every reminder we were ever in love

It’d be easier to say it was nothing, but the ashes tell the truth

I can’t burn away the scraps of love I’m still clinging to

I’m still clinging to you

6. ELEANOR (LIVE)

Eleanor you’ve been through this all before

Even more it seems like you’re lying

You know you’re not even trying, and I’m not buying it

Yesterday you said you’d throw them all away

Then today I found it all in your bottom drawer

Eleanor you’ve been through this all before

Eleanor you’ve been through this all before

He’s not coming back you’ve been betrayed and

You know that you’ve been played

There’s so much more to you than him

Don’t let him win this war Eleanor

Eleanor why are you still keeping score

At your core I thought you wanted a new chapter

Unhappy-ever-after suits you less than your lost laughter

On the phone you said that you were all alone

I should have known you let him in again back for more

Eleanor you’ve been through this all before

Eleanor you’ve been through this all before

He’s not coming back you’ve been betrayed and

You know that you’ve been played

There’s so much more to you than him

Don’t let him win this war Eleanor

You’re letting him in you’re letting him win

You’re letting him spin you back around in circles

You’re letting him break you’re letting him take

You’re letting him waste your heart Eleanor

Eleanor you’ve been through this all before

Eleanor change the locks on all your doors

Eleanor, Eleanor

Eleanor you’ve been through this all before

Eleanor why are you still keeping score

Eleanor, Eleanor

Eleanor, Eleanor
