Track Name: Something to Believe In
Something to Believe In

The moment I woke up
Was the day the tests came back
With ev’ry word that left his lips
Sweat poured down my back.
Heart pounding, mind racing,
Soul screaming, paralyzing,
Knee buckling,
blood draining disbelief.
(God this isn’t real.)

With ev’ry breath
I’m filled with fear
Please dear Lord,
don’t leave me alone here
Bring your angels,
I need you near,
To say, “Fear not”
(God) Then give me

Something to believe in
Something to hold
Something to cling to
Before I feel too old
Wrap it around me,
Taste, touch, behold
Cuz seeing is believing.
(Won’t you tell me please?)

Something to believe in,
Something to hold
Something to dream about
Before my blood runs cold
Inject it like serum
Let the truth be told
Lord I need it now
(Won’t you tell me please?)

What is it about death I fear?
I’m really not having such a good time here.
Will I land in hell and burn forever
The pain and torment of the devils den?

Who’s to say I haven’t done it right?
Maybe I’m moving towards the Light
Dying will get me closer to God
I’ll be there to watch the Angels applaud
And they’ll give me

Something to Believe in
Something I can see
Something I can touch


And it can set me free
Something I can taste
on the tip of my tongue
Make me feel alive again,
make me feel young
(Won’t you tell me please?)

Something to believe in
A path that warms my heart
That gives my life meaning
A brand new start
Something to believe in
A sign to give me hope
A promise, a purpose,
an eternal telescope
(Won’t you tell me please?)

And what difference would it
make if I ended it all now?
Please dear Lord just make it stop,
I really don’t care how.
Swallow the pills, fire the gun,
Turn on the gas and let it run,
Either way the devil’s won,
Who’s to care? (Not you)

Where are you now?
Now that I need you
Please show me how
How I can see you.

But I guess that’s the way he wants it,
To end it would be a sin
This is our trial, our test of faith
Endure the suffering, and win the race

It’s not our show
It’s his to run, we can only come home
Like the prodigal son
Do our best to give up control
Bide our time, walk in faith
And search for

Chorus

Track Name: Don't Tell Anyone
Don’t Tell Anyone

Words and Music by Juliet Wright

Darlin’ let the lace
Slip off your shoulder just so
Your Mom will never know
Let y our fantasies flow
Cuz you’re old enough now
Don’t tell anyone

Darlin’ won’t you come over here
And sit on my lap
I need some cheering up
Let your skirt slip up
Your mamma will never know
Don’t tell anyone

Darlin’ won’t you come over here
And help me with this hay
Cuz I feel so sad
You make me feel okay
Your mama will never know
Don’t tell anyone

Because you see
I know your Daddy’s gone
Left you and mamma all alone
Maybe I could care for you
And your mamma too
If you’d do me this one favor

Darlin if you’ll love me
I’ll give you a job forever
Just touch me just like this
Then you’ll escape hungers kiss
My wife will never know
Don’t tell anyone

Darlin hear that whistle blow
Your life is in my hands
You could be on the street
If my kiss you can’t stand
Make me feel good
Don’t’ tell anyone

Because you have no talent
You have no looks and frankly I don’t’ need you
But if you give me what’s yours
I promise that’ I’ll save you

So Darlin' let the lace fall off your shoulder just so
I need to fee good
I just knew you would
Your mamma will never know
Don’t tell anyone

My wife will never know
Don’t tell anyone
Track Name: Sliding in the Grease
Sliding in the Grease

Chorus 1:
Sliding in the grease is my favorite game
Teacher says my wiggles put me to shame
Stop that dancin’ and write your name
Escape the mill; give your life some aim

Verse 1:
I don’t care about that
Gotta new game to play and Arthur to follow, it’s
where I’m at
Free from worry wanna dance all day

Chorus 2:
Sliding in the grease is my favorite game
It comes from the cotton so much its insane
Just don’t get it on your clothes
Cuz they’ll never, ever be clean again

Verse 2:
I don’t care about that
Gotta do my part to make the family
Fat
Mama’s countin’ on my can’t let her down on that

Chorus 3:
Sliding in the grease was my favorite game
Now I’m spinning those bobbins in a house size frame
Twelve times something can’t count that high
Arthur knows his times tables better than I

Verse 3:
Don’t care about that
Gotta prove to Mama I’m as good as Dehlia
That
Is a life time of work, you can bet on that

Bridge:
My head hurts, my legs ache, my feet feel like lead
There’s cotton in my mouth and lungs and in my head
Mr. Hine and Mr. Graflex tried to save me
But Mama tore the picture that they gave me.

Chorus 4:
Sliding in the grease was my favorite game
Now I sneak to school on Sunday just to keep me sane
Maybe I’ll be the teacher someday
Teach Mama to read give her life some aim
(The future remains)
(So her hope remains)
(And ease her pain)
(And Hope remains)

Verse 4:
And I care about that
I am doing my part to make the family
Fat
There’s more to life than spinning
Mr. Hine saw to that.

Track Name: Don't Let Me Down
Don’t Let Me Down

Words and Music
By
Juliet A. Wright


Addie don’t you think of lettin’ me down
I’m counting on you
To do your best and keep your feet on the ground
Oh
Don’t let me down

Times are tough
We’ve got to make a go
Get to spinning
Forget your dancin’
You’re always too slow
Oh,
Don’t let me down

Prechorus:
If you’re sick on Sunday
I’ll let you stay home in bed
Need to doff tomorrow
More than pray today
No money for the basket
But God understands
Oh,
Don’t let me down

Addie don’t you think of lettin’ me down
I’m counting on you
To do your best
And keep your feet on the ground
Oh
Don’t let me down

Ain’t no use in you going to school
Silly ideas in your head
Just make you a bigger fool
Oh
Don’t let me down

Prechorus 2:
I better not catch you hiding books
In your smock
It’s just wasted time off the clock

I don’t know how to read
So why should you? (So what’s your need?)
Oh,
Don’t let me down

Bridge:
Addie don’t you let me down
Break this fever and come around
Four of my babies never made it past ten
Not losing you
Like I did them

I used to have dreams
Darlin,
Like a fool
Make good money
And go back home
But Papa left us here
We’re on our own.
Oh,
Don’t let me down

Track Name: All These Fears
All These Fears

Words and Music by Juliet Wright

Chorus:
When will I shed all these fears and live?
When will I stop being selfish and give?
When will I face all these fears and break free?
Why am I so afraid to be me?

Verse 1:
As a child I could feel creatures
Crawling up my legs
All alone in my bed at night
I’d jump and cry and beg

Verse 2:
I was truly afraid of monsters
I knew they were under my bed
Or hiding in my closet
Slowly invading my head

Prechorus:
Bug-eyed it was 3:00 am
Watching ghosts float down the hall
Out to get me they truly were
The most frightening of all

Out of breath
My heart was pounding
Covers up to my chin
I’d scream the nightmare silent scream
No sound no rescue no win.

Chorus:
When will I shed all these fears and live?
When will I stop being selfish and give?
When will I face all these fears and break free?
Why am I so afraid to be me?

Verse 3:
Now I cry that cupid will curse me
And I’ll live my life alone.
My glass is empty for all to see
And their hearts will turn to stone.

Verse 4:
A fatal mistake will finish me
Like Eve’s tragic fall
And people will finally find out
What’s really behind my wall.

Prechorus:
Fear and pain are my offering
They attack my heart once more.
My nerves are throbbing like guitar strings
in arpeggios that soar.

If we stand in opposite corners
Hearts and minds exposed
Am I strong enough to stand it
With my battle scars exposed

Chorus:
When will I shed all these fears and live?
When will I stop being selfish and give?
When will I face all these fears and break free?
Why am I so afraid to be me?

Bridge:
I have always lived in a sea of fear
Waiting for a shoe to drop
Waiting for my heart to stop
Pounding through my chest.

Now I’ll confront my fears a head on
Speak my truth, sing my song,
And if you choose to walk away.
After you’ve heard what I have to say,
At least I believed in me.

Chorus:
When will I shed all these fears and live?
When will I stop being selfish and give?
When will I face all these fears and break free?
Why am I so afraid to be me?
Track Name: My Mighty Warrior
My Mighty Warrior (The Linton Worm)

Words and Music by Juliet Wright

Verse 1:
The Linton Worm
He follows me again
This worm
He knows no mercy
In the end

Verse 2:
He squirms, attacks
And swallows
All he sees
Devouring all that’s in his path
With ease.

Prechorus:
He lives on the east side of Linton Hill
Ravaging the countryside at will.
I fear nothing can stop him
But Mr. Summerville.

Chorus:
Where are you?
When I need to most?
My mighty warrior
When will you save me
From this wicked worm
That tortures my soul
Bring it under control.

Verse 3:
He chases me
Throughout the day and night
Breathing lies
Until I think he’s right.

Prechorus:
Why must we endure this test
Can’t it just be laid to rest
And finally
Set us free.



Chorus:
Where are you?
When I need you most?
My mighty warrior
When will you save me
From this wicked worm
That tortures my soul
Bring it under control

Bridge:
Linton
Affects all generations
Getting bigger and bigger
To swallow you whole
He wraps himself
Around your life 10 times again
Growing all the time

Even Thor
Can’t overcome his poison
Though he tries

Verse 4:
But before you convict
Or put me on trial
When’s the last time you resisted
Linton’s smile

Prechorus:
In my frail canoe I cross his fire
To find the strength to call him a liar
And follow the song in my heart

Where are you?
When I need you most?
My mighty warrior
When will you save me
From this burning desire
That tortures my soul
Bring it under control

Track Name: Happily Ever After
Happily Ever After

Music by Juliet Wright
Lyrics by Juliet Wright and Nicole Wilde

Verse 1:
I think I’d like to play queen for a day
Dress up in lace
With just a trace
Of innocence
On my mind

Verse 2:
Remember we’d stray down fantasies way
Walk down the aisles
With grown up smiles
Our hands full of childish dreams

Chorus:
Kings and Queens and movie scenes
And wishes that always come true
That’s how it’s planned in this magic land
Of happily ever after.

Verse 3:
Someone stole her heart away
She saw blue skies
Through innocent eyes
But storms appeared
Just like before

Verse 4:
Day after day her life passed her by
A mirror it seemed
To what might have been
Till she shattered the glass
And the dream fell away

Chorus:
Kings and Queens and movie scenes
And wishes that always come true
That’s how it’s planned in this magic land
Of happily ever after.

Bridge:
Talking on the phone from day to day
Will the horse and carriage
Ever come our way?
Are we missing something here
As we wait and wait in fear
Of loneliness

Verse 5:
The flowers are dead and the lace is torn
The soles of these shoes
Are bloody well worn
I really don’t think
I can go through this again

Chorus:
Kings and Queens and movie scenes
And wishes that always come true
That’s how it’s planned in this magic land
Of happily ever after.

Chorus:
Kings and Queens and movie scenes
And wishes that always come true
That’s how it’s planned in this magic land
Of happily ever after.

Ever after
Ever after
Ever after
Ever after

LONELY SUNDAY
Words and music by Juliet Wright


Lonely Sunday takes me back
Melancholy moods
Right on track

My sun has set yet it is day
Dark night of my soul
Take(s) me away

Why__________
Why__________

Lonely Sunday speaks of you
Whispers of regret
That is so true

Light the candle
Burn the page
Lest memories become my cage

Why__________
Why__________

Bridge

Lonely Sunday your desert wins
Dry mouthed, parched and desperate
I give in

Habits made of iron numb me out
Trying to erase
This loving drought

Track Name: Lonelyhearts
Lonely-hearts

His eyes follow her around the room
Day after day
Watching her dive deeper into her gloom
Wasting life away

He knows
He knows all her secrets
Her darkest thoughts translucent
She’s just not getting it at all


He’s wondering if she’ll ever get it right
Lonely-hearts will you start tonight?
Wondering if she’ll ever see the Light inside
Herself.

He watches her waiting by the phone
But it never rings.
Examines her e-dates endlessly
Searching for her king

He sees
Miss Lonely-hearts out of luck tonight
You might as well give up the fight
Turn off the phone
Turn out the light.

Chorus

Warm blue eyes
Long to kiss her
And console her
As he whispers
From his gilded frame.

You’re looking for something
That doesn’t exist
There is no prince or domestic bliss
The American Dream is just that
A dream
Sealed with a kiss.

He watches as she wrestles with her thoughts
Kicking and screaming like a child distraught
Not wanting to believe the awful truth

Chorus

His eyes follow her around the room
Day after day
Watching her dive deeper into her gloom
Wasting life away


He sees
Her table is still set for two
Cheap china and steamy dreams of you
Oh how hope dies hard…..

Chorus

Verse 1:
Hannah do you believe in miracles
Are they just for seventeen?
Are we really so much wiser now?
Or are we giving up our dreams?

Verse 2:
Hannah I remember dancing in the sand
Wrapped in his arms so tight
But then the sun grew cold
And shadows filled the air
Another sleepless night.

Chorus:
Maybe this time
It’ll work out fine
Someone or something
Will show us the way
You know life is long
And times will change
So keep your love alive today

Verse 3:
Hannah do you think that this could be the one
When he smiles my sadness fades
But when is eyes meet mine twenty years from now
Will they still have such a flame?

Chorus:
Maybe this time
It’ll work out fine
Someone or something
Will show us the way
You know life is long
And times will change
So keep your love alive today



Bridge:

Roses will bloom and fade
Children will grow
So hold me now
Closer still
Tonight

Verse 1:
Hannah do you believe in miracles
Are they just for seventeen?
Are we really so much wiser now?
Or are we giving up our dreams?

Chorus:
Maybe this time
It’ll work out fine
Someone or something
Will show us the way
You know life is long
And times will change
So keep your love alive today

Chorus:
Maybe this time
It’ll work out fine
Someone or something

Track Name: In Front of Me
But in Front of Me
Words and Music by Juliet Wright

Verse 1:
The sign says reduced speed ahead
But all I see are empty spaces
That remind me of the empty faces
Staring back at me day after day
Any brilliance night time follies erases
They forget (ignore) me
Empty spaces

Chorus 1:
But in front of me
Are the children of Saint Mary
Our dreams will they carry on.

With love I can see
Their souls search for truth
Eager to leave youth behind.
But can I see?

Verse 2:
The sign says “Have a nice day.”
But all I see is white
Green hides beneath white crystal coats
Of ice and snow
This wind chills me to the bone.
Making minutes go by like hours
Frozen spaces.

Chorus 2:
But in front of me
The earth is asleep.
Why do I weep and moan?
This rest she needs
To bring spring to life the time when she takes her throne.
But Can I see.

Bridge:
Down the road I know he’s there.
The one who’s true and calls me fair.
It’s hard to tell what the future holds
But I’ll be alright.
For my Lord, I know he’s there.

Verse 3:
The sign says “prepare to stop.”
But all I want to do is run.
Run from the gray trees and sky
Gray on the road ahead
And the gray in my reflection.
The gray in your dying face.

But in front of me.
Is a man who’s done his time.
He’s learned his lessons fine for now.
He’ll be taken back.
To try and try again.
Our lessons they send us back.
But can I see?
Can I see?
Can I see?

Nothing but the beating of my heart.
Nothing but the beating of my heart.

Verse 4:
The sign says ICU
But all I see are white walls
Tired to my bed unable to move
What’s happening to me
Concerned faces stare down at me.
Lord I’m frightened.
Desperate spaces.

Chorus 4:
But in front of me
Is the paradise I’ve searched for.
Fear it has lurked for so long.

Now I can leave
This troubled world behind.
Be with the One who’s true and kind.
But can I see?
Can I see?
Can I see?
Can I see?

There’s nothing but he beating of my heart.
Nothing but the beating of my heart.

All I can do is the best I can do
All I can do is the best I can do

Track Name: My Sinking Ship
My Sinking Ship

All aboard my sinking ship
My sun is setting fast
Melancholy madness
This gloom I can’t get past.

Desperation seeks me
Her alter has been cast
Deaths boatman I would welcome him
To stop her whip so fast.

It starts with a song
And a memory
They oft go hand in hand
Reminiscing, Africa, Offramp has your brand.

Our ship has sailed
And here I am clinging to the mast
I’m a shipwrecked woman
Living in the past.

Then I embrace my sadness
It fits me like a glove

All aboard my sinking ship
My sun is setting fast
Melancholy madness
This gloom I can’t get past.

Desperation seeks me
Her alter has been cast.
Deaths boatman I would welcome him
To stop her whip so fast

Wrong words fall
Like rain in summer
Sad eyes pierce my skin
My flower turns upon itself
Puts me in this fix I’m in

Nary is a petal left
Beauty destroyed by blame
In prison I have placed myself
Built with bricks of shame

Then I embrace my anguish
It fits me like a glove

All aboard my sinking ship
My sun is setting fast
Melancholy madness
This gloom I can’t get past.

Desperation seeks me
Her alter has been cast.
My Lord I would welcome him
To take me home at last.

Six strings and a melody
Sharp four major seven
That’s the answer to my prayers
A lifeboat straight to heaven.

Then I embrace my music
It fits me like a glove

It takes all my strength to climb the stairs
The others are behind me
It’s up to me to save them all
Responsibility

But I am tired and way too slow
In pain I can’t hold on.
Only God can get me through this
And convince me to go on.

Then I embrace my loving God
He fits me like a glove.

All aboard my saving ship
My sun is rising fast
Melancholy madness
This gloom I’m finally past

Desperation sought me
Her alter had been cast
But God has sailed me through it
My soul free at last.

Track Name: Midguard
Midgard (The Worms)

Words and Music by Juliet Wright


Verse 1:
I pass the old woman
With glasses walking
You’re on the right path she says
Keep on going, I am the Lord
This is one of my disguises

Prechorus:
In my dreams
I grabbed a
Swarm of matted flies
As I reached into my soul

Verse 2:
The guy with the weird eye is here
He watches me like a hawk
He sees the worms inside of me
As I try to run but walk

Prechorus:
He’s a mighty man
And you can’t do that
As he plays with the worms like pets
Just face them and you’ll be okay

Chorus:
But Midgard shows his face again
I sure don’t see him as my friend
I am surrounded there is no end
You’re help please send

And Midgard catches me again
I must dig deep to reach the end
I am obsessed I must transcend
Again

Verse 3:
Looking for my truth with him
In a cabin beside the road
Lots of people here trying
To help me ease my load

Prechorus:
A woman in pink
Her baby dropping things
Says
You have to keep on trying
Someday your soul will sing

Chorus:
But Midgard shows his face again
I sure don’t see him as my friend
I must dig deep to reach the end
My soul to mend.

And Midgard catches me again
I must dig deep to reach the end
I am obsessed I must transcend
Again

Bridge:
Out they come
My worms
They’re here
Blame, obsession,
Self-hate and fear
It’s time to weed this wormwood
From my fruitful brain

For years
Under your scrutiny
Your mind was wrapped
Around yourself
But now the child is here
And crying mutiny

Verse 4:
Lady with the glasses
Just looks at me
No longer knows what to say
The man with the weird eye
Has turned and finally walked away

Prechorus:
They’re bowing out
They’ve had enough
Of fruitless tries with me
They’ve set me free

Chorus:
And Midgard shows his face again
I sure don’t see him as my friend
I am surrounded
There is no end
You’re help you send

And Midgard follows me again
I must dig deep to reach the end
I am obsessed I must transcend
Again

He’s bearing down but I defend
My digging trains me to transcend
I kiss his face, he is my friend
My soul God mends.
My soul God mends.
My soul God mends.
My soul God mends. (repeat this on tag.)

Extra stuff:
Beneath my voice
Flowing less sweetly
Where these worms
Living inside me
Crawling, wiggling,
Infesting, polluting

Self doubt, blame, hatred, lust, fear
Inferiority
All my life I have made these a priority
These are my worms
Crawling out from behind every wall
Too powerful to be ignored.
Track Name: Expectations
EXPECTATIONS
Words and Music
By
Juliet Wright

Verse 1:
Why aren’t I thin, I overeat
Why aren’t I pretty, long arms, big feet
Shame on me, admit defeat
With your fantasy, I can’t compete
It’s perfect

Prechorus 1:
After all it’s all about you
You’re the one who’s good
Why can’t I be who you want me to be
And take care of you like I should

Chorus 1:
You keep shoving expectations on me
I just keep trying to please you
You keep shoving expectations on me
I’ll lose myself trying to please you.

Verse 2:
Emotional, I cry too much
It looks so weak to show feelings and such
Hide it, stuff it, straight faced, be strong
To feel (anything) and show it is really wrong
I missed your mark
Of perfect

Prechorus 2:
After all it’s all about you
You’re the one who’s right
Why can’t I be who you want me to be
And make your future bright

Chorus 2:
You keep shoving expectations on me
I just keep trying to please you
You keep shoving expectations on me
I lose myself rather than leave you.

Bridge 1:
I see disapproval in your eyes
Again I didn’t measure up
I’m never going to please you (You’re never going to love me)
I may as well give up.

Bridge 2:
You keep pushing and pushing for perfection
That’s how I win your affection
You keep pushing and pushing to change me
I try and fail
Good bye to my dreams.

Verse 3:
I try my best but I can’t win
I’m weak, I lose, it is a sin
Work ‘til I drop, to win your love
Enlightened now, I look above
There’s His love, He’s (It’s) perfect.

Prechorus 3:
After all it’s not about you
You’re not the one who’s right
I don’t have to be who you want me to be
I’ve finally seen the Light

Chorus 3:
You keep shoving expectations on me
I won’t keep trying to please you
You keep shoving expectations on me
I’ll choose His love; it’s all I can do.
