LYRICS

Under My Skin: Written by Vicky Emerson & Matt Patrick

I can take the high road. I can hide in the valley. I can live my life so clean only you remind me. What I’ve been missin’, what I’ve been missin’ all along. I can be the hero. I can steal the glory. I’m a bird waitin’ on the wire only you remind me. What I’ve been missin’, what I’ve been missin’ all along.

Ooo, all this trouble I’m in. Ooo, now that you’re under my skin.

You can roll me like a river or strike like lighting. Could you be the only one I need? C’mon babe, remind me. What I’ve been missin’, what I’ve been missin’ all along. 

Ooo, all this trouble I’m in. Ooo, now that you’re under my skin.

You’re pulling at my collar and I’m howlin’ at the moon. If I can’t get any closer, this chain is breakin’ soon. I know that you want me and baby, I want you. I know that you want me and baby, I want you.

Ooo, all this trouble I’m in. Ooo, now that you’re under my skin.

 

Rattle Shake: Written by Vicky Emerson & Matt Patrick

The sun has spun me around. Heat is rising from the ground. I was chasin’ my desires that led to this place. Somehow, my map caught on fire and now there’s no escape. 

I hear your rattle. I hear your rattle shake, hey hey hey.

Mesmerized by your sound. I was lost but now I’m found. Like walkin’ on barbed wire, a moth to a flame. The whisper of the fire seems to know my name. 

I hear your rattle. I hear your rattle shake, hey hey hey. 

I know that I should run but the rhythm of the rattle draws me in. Oh, what have I done? The rhythm of the rattle draws me in, the rhythm of the rattle draws me in, the rhythm draws me in.

I hear your rattle. I hear your rattle shake, hey hey hey.

Long Gone: Written by Vicky Emerson

Headin’ down the highway with a fistful of cash. I paid my penance and they set me free at last. I told them I was sorry. I said that I had changed. My lies spilled out like whiskey and then I left my cage

I know I’ve been long gone. I know I’ve been long gone, long gone in my heart.

Headin’ down the highway, only one thought on my mind. Shadows caress my body. Gonna take back what is mine.  I’ve had some time to ponder. I’ve had some time to plan. No forgiveness. No forgetting for a crow’s road man.

I know I’ve been long gone. I know I’ve been long gone, long gone in my heart.

I’ve had some time to ponder. I’ve had some time to plan. No forgiveness. No forgetting for a crow’s road man. I should beg for mercy. I should bed for mercy. But I don’t beg for nobody.

I know I’ve been long gone. I know I’ve been long gone, long gone in my heart.

Silhouette: Written by Vicky Emerson

Church bells ring, quarter past nine. The snow is falling, wind in my eyes. Love has gone and made my heart cold. I wait for you as the north wind blows. Oooo….

I should be falling, falling, falling in love with you.

I see you there on the corner of first. Your silhouette glows like a ghost. Your eyes of fire tear straight through me. What you want shall never be. Oooo….

I should be falling, falling, falling in love with you.

It’s not your fault. I’m an empty house. Rooms are bare, lights burned out. My sincere regret will come to haunt. I cannot love you as I ought.

I should be falling, falling, falling in love with you.

Runaway Train: Written by Vicky Emerson

Engine full of fire. Smoke is rising higher, higher. Thunder on the tracks. There’s no way I’m going back. You warned me once, you warned me twice and I still said yes.

My heart took off like a runaway train. Rolling fast as a bullet but I am not afraid.

Primal is the fire to fulfill our desires. Pulse is beating fast. There’s no way I’m going back. You warned me once, you warned me twice and I still said yes.

My heart took off like a runaway train. Rolling fast as bullet. You may think that I don’t know my aim but I do and I am not afraid.

Part of me wants to know how this will end. Part of me doesn’t care what’s around the bend.

My heart took off like a runaway train. Rolling fast as a bullet. You may think that I don’t know my aim but I do and I am not afraid.

Save All My Cryin’ (For Sunday Afternoons): Written by Vicky Emerson

This house is hollow. Silence as thick as thieves. Bitter pill to swallow. You no longer belong to me. Walk these halls like a reverent prayer. I whisper your name to the sun. Light hits my face, I shut the shades and let the tears come.

I save all my cryin’ for Sunday afternoons. I hide myself away, drown in thoughts of you. I pray that the tide will roll out soon and there’ll be no more cryin’ on a Sunday afternoon.

All my dreams have unraveled. All that’s left is a bunch of seams. I’m not good with a needle. I can’t mend what you’ve broken inside of me. Walk these halls like some lost soul. I whisper your name to the sun. Light hits my face, I shut the shades and let the tears come. 

I save all my cryin’ for Sunday afternoons. I hide myself away, drown in thoughts of you. I pray that the tide will roll out soon and there’ll be no more cryin’ on a Sunday afternoon.

Do you ever cry for me? Do you ever cry for me?

Light hits my face, I shut the shade and let the tears come.

Lyndale: Written by Vicky Emerson

Followed your steps down Lyndale, just past 42nd street. See that old house where we just started out. They painted it white and the shutters green. Days move on leaving years in the wake. It’s time for me to let you go. Go see the world with those beautiful eyes. Only way you’ll ever know…

That you can swing from the tallest tree and you can brave the roughest seas. When you turn yourself around and you lose who you are, just point yourself north. You don’t have to go that far.

Let what you love be your guide. Listen to that drum in your chest. So many voices you’ll hear on the way, trust that yours knows best.

You can swing from the tallest tree and you can brave the roughest seas. When you turn yourself around and you lose who you are, just point yourself north. You don’t have to go that far.

Let my love carry you home. Let my love carry you home. 

You can swing from the tallest tree and you can brave the roughest seas. When you turn yourself around and you lose who you are, just point yourself north. You don’t have to go that far.

Dance Me into the Night: Written by Vicky Emerson

Take my hand, make me feel light as air. Spin me ‘round, make the world disappear. Dance me into the light. Dance me into the night. Take my hand, time travel with me. Roll back the years. Tell me what do you see? Dance me into the light. Dance me into the night.

Oh, how you move. I’ll follow you.

In your eyes, light of a million stars. Sacred love covered in dreams and scars. Dance me into the light. Dance me into the night.

Oh, how you move. I’ll follow you. 

Dance me into the light. Dance me into the night.

September Midnight: Written by Vicky Emerson

September midnight, stars burning bright.  Silence descending, holding you tight. No words are spoken. We’ve said them all. Another fire has come and gone. The years they pass, they give and take. We try the best we can. Isn’t love just letting go again and again?

You are not alone tonight. You are not alone tonight. Please hold my hand. Take a deep breath. Close your eyes, love, and I’ll do the rest.

We pull together, we drift apart. Defenses falling here in the dark. The years they pass, they give and take. We try the best we can. Isn’t love just letting go again and again? 

You are not alone tonight. You are not along tonight. Please hold my hand. Take a deep breath. Close your eyes, love, and I’ll do the rest.

All will not be lost when the morning comes ‘cause I’ll still be here. I’ll still be here.

You are not alone tonight. You are not alone. You are not alone tonight.

Follow the Moon: Written by Vicky Emerson

High in the sky, look at you shinin’ bright.  I’ll follow you home. High in the sky, look at you shinin’ bright. I’ll follow you home. 

I will follow you, I will follow you all the way home. 

There have been days when I’ve lost my way. You blow the shadows away. There have been days when I’ve lost my way. You blow the shadows away.

I will follow you, I will follow you all the way home.

I’ll take a walk ‘round Lake Calhoun. I close my eyes and dream of you. I’ll sit and watch the stars explode. You cast a light upon my road.

High in the sky, look at you shinin’ bright. I’ll follow you home. High in the sky, look at you shine your light on me. I’ll follow you home.

I will follow you, I will follow you all the way home. I will follow you, I will follow you all the way home. I will follow you, I will follow the moon all the way home.
