Walk Through Walls (2014)
Released April 8, 2014
Frequencies
Iíve never been quite as tough as them
Iíve been picking up frequencies
Just as long as my little heart could beat me down
Before I run off and drown in the stuff that never happened

The crazy thing about love
Is that itís always good enough
And if you let it grow, then you know for sure
That it could hurt you more
But youíve been hurt before
By all of the stuff that never happened

Follow your heart
Til itís easy til itís open
Long enough to feel a little bit broken
Til heaven has spoken

You got ahold of me before I got to be
The kind of person that I dreamed Iíd be
The kind of person that would never ever hide away
When thereís so much to say about the things that matter

Follow your heart
Til itís easy til itís open
Long enough to feel a little bit broken
Til heaven has spoken
Drug
Oh, you left me with a little of your love, your love
Oh, Iím gonna need some more, I need some more love, some more love
Oh, you left me in the middle of your love
Oh, and now I need some more youíre like a drug, a drug

Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to meet you
Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to meet you
Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to

Oh, Iím taking it to everywhere I go, I go
Oh, And now you need to know you need to know, to know
Oh, You kill me when you say you have to go, to go
Oh, Addicted to you baby even though my lord, oh my lord

Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to meet you
Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to meet you
Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to
Walk Through Walls
How do you know the world is round
When youíre blissfully enchanted on the ground
How do you see a world outside
When youíre surrounded by a picture in your mind
When I saw your eyes they stole my heart
And they told me I was living in the dark
And now Iím caught in a great divide
And Iím aching to be on the other side

But before you walk through walls
You will leave all this behind
Before you walk through walls
You will look it in the eye
Before you walk through walls
You will learn to say goodbye
If you let your guard down long enough to try

How do you know a flame is real
Out of all the fires this is one I feel
They happen so fast
The moments pass
And weíre all waiting for the moments that will last
When I saw your eyes they stole my heart

Before you walk through walls
You will leave all this behind
Before you walk through walls
You will look it in the eye
Before you walk through walls
You will learn to say goodbye
If you let your guard down long enough to try

Before you walk through walls
You will leave all this behind
Before you walk through walls
You will look it in the eye
Before you walk through walls
You will learn to say goodbye
Before you walk through walls
You will look it in the eye
Before you walk through walls
You will learn to let it die
In the moment where the darkness needs the light
Summer
I remember the time you first held your hand in mine
We left our worries behind us
We got lost alright
And thereís no way to describe how a moment changes
Maybe the world would define us
But our hands were tied

Donít let go of me
Donít give up on me

We had our feet in the sand
With an ocean waiting
And I was tied to the land of summer fading
Will you lay down with me here
While the waters rise
Or will you follow my fear to the other side

Donít give up on me
Donít give up on me
Say It Out Loud
Say it out loud
Weíre moving the world around
Careful you donít look down
You might be the last one out
Weíre here to stay
We wonít give our lives away
We know thereís a better way
The people will have their say
And theyíll say it out loud

You think itís fun
Holding a loaded gun
Pointing it at the sun
Not fooling anyone
Iíll say it now
Weíre starting a revolution
Against our own confusion
There will be no illusion
When we say it out loud

Say it out loud
Say it out loud
Say it out loud...
Your Side
We felt love so we made it
We felt hope so we braved it
We felt fear so we tamed it
We held on and we waited
From the fire to the fear to the fall
Heaven knows Iím on your side
From the first to the last through it all
Everywhere our worlds collide

Oh, Oh
We canít hide from each other
We can hide from no one
Oh, Oh
Give our hearts to each other
Lift them up like weíre young

When we lived in the moment
We forgot all our shame
When we woke in the morning
We knew then we are the same
From the fire to the fear to the fall
Heaven knows Iím on your side
From the first to the last through it all
Everywhere our worlds collide

Oh, Oh
We canít hide from each other
We can hide from no one
Oh, Oh
Give our hearts to each other
Lift them up like weíre young
Lines
I donít want to hurt you
I just want to be your friend
Even though we draw our lines with very different ends
Do you believe me
Have I even earned your trust
To ask you for it now, would it ever be enough
With all the words to say
Surely we can find
A place to leave our past behind

Oh our worlds collide
When they canít survive
On their own precious lies
Oh we make mistakes
Find what it takes
And make an honest try

Searching for an answer
Searching for a common ground
Searching for a place to stand
That doesnít tear you down
Can you even see me
Would you look me in the eye
Or will it just remind you
Weíre living in a great divide
Are you looking for a truth
Are you looking for a sign
Or are you looking for your own kind?

Oh our worlds collide
When they canít survive
On their own precious lies
Oh we make mistakes
Find what it takes
And make an honest try
Thick as Thieves
Do you feel heaven
When the ache is strong
When the nets are left alone
Wonder what we'll find
As the cast is drifting

My love hold me to your side
My love just like the first time
Hold on, hold me through the mourning
Hold on, harder than I'm falling

Do you feel heaven
In late July
We'll never learn to say goodbye
The sand will dry
Now the sun is lifting

My love hold me to your side
My love just like the first time
Hold on, hold me through the mourning
Hold on, harder than I'm falling


All, all that I long for
All that I look for
All, all that I long for
All that I look for
My love

My love hold me to your side
My love just like the first time
Hold on, hold me through the mourning
Hold on, harder than I'm falling
Human Too
Look me in the eye
Weíve been here before
The start of the future
The end of a war
We lost where we came from
We found who we were
We fell out of space
And landed on earth

Ooh, tell me that you understand
Tell me that youíre human too
That all the magic
And all the tragic
Lives inside you too

If we looked up
If we looked in
If we let go
Of the shape that weíre in
Start with a stranger
Ask them their name
Forgive them their fortunes
Forgive them their pain

Ooh, tell me that you understand
Tell me that youíre human too
That all the magic
And all the tragic
Lives inside you too

We all breathe the same air that we breathe
We all seek the same love that we need

Ooh, tell me that you understand
Tell me that youíre human too
That all the magic
And all the tragic
Lives inside you too
Water Fear
All the weight you left behind you
Hiding in the space in my chest
Youíre wide awake when I am sleeping
On the other side on the other side
Oh I pray that I will keep you
Got to keep you in my grasp
Because you broke me made me saved me
Never look back never look back never look back

Oh the way you shake my senses
Shaken from the first to the last
In the moments heaven sent us
Why canít all of them last
I am open fallen broken since the moment you passed
I am searching aching taking
Never look back never look back never look back

Iím all the way to the water
Iím all the way to the fear
Iím all the way to the water
Iím all the way to the fear

You have broken my heart open
Left me on the edge of the land
Itís the furthest I have traveled from the palm of your hand
An unspoken deep devotion heaven and earth understand
Oh the moment I give in and never look back
Never look back never look back

Iím all the way to the water
Iím all the way to the fear
Iím all the way to the water
Iím all the way to the fear
Forgiveness
You were given long enough to move along
You said weíre living to forgive what may have come
As you were leaving
As I was grieving
I have loved you all my life
I ask forgiveness I ask forgiveness I ask forgiveness
For our last goodbye

I still need you no matter how much time has passed
I still feel you oh how I long to feel your grasp
Because I love you
Because you love me all my life
I ask forgiveness I ask forgiveness I ask forgiveness
For our last goodbye
Proud
We should ask ourselves out loud
Are we really proud
Are we living with our hearts in the open
We should ask ourselves out loud
Are we really proud
Of the lines that we have chosen
Of the words we havenít spoken
To repair what we have broken

We should ask ourselves out loud
Are we really proud
Are we building walls or bridges
Are we sharing our own riches

You couldnít look awayÖ
The Waking Sleep (2011)
Released September 22, 2011
Free My Mind
My mind is like a heavy hand
Always making more of what really happened
A critical imagination always working overtime
Maybe this is what the world will see
A tiny little version of the tallest tree
An optical illusion of the human mind
Posing as a real life

I never had my mind made up before the bomb dropped
And if I ever do decide to take a chance oh
The part that keeps me holding on

It'll be my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes
Free my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes.

We like to watch the world go by
Paint a pretty picture with the perfect light
Build a happy home to live inside
Working Ďtil the sunrise
But I haven't such a dream to keep
To spend another day counting sheep
Seven in a row will make a week
Enough to disappoint you

I never had my mind made up before the bomb dropped
And if I ever do decide to take a chance oh
The part that keeps me holding on

It'll be my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes
Free my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes.

Never had my mind made up
No I never had my mind made up
Oh no I never had my mind made up
Never had my mind made upÖ.

It'll be my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes
Free my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes

Be my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes
Free my mind
Awaken my mind
Awaken my mind
Open my eyes.
Make A Noise
Katie Herzig and Cason Cooley
Look up you see the sky on fire
Look out the waterís getting higher now

Believe that you can change the world
Your dreams have been living in a code of silence
So let them out

Find your voice
Find your voice
Make a noise

You try to find the words you want to say
You might be looking much too far away
To recognize weíre all disguised

Find your voice
Find your voice
Make a noise

Oh we all were born before the war
But worlds collide
Look at all the people fighting for the same side
Oh we all were born before the war
But worlds collide
You canít have the peace youíre looking for without a fight
Oh we all were born before the war
But worlds collide
If you see the world you want more, then make it right

(you see the sky on fire, the waterís getting higher)

Donít run away run away
donít run away
Donít run away run away
donít run away
Way to the Future
Katie Herzig and Cason Cooley
She could be easy to find you see
She writes the songs only for you to sing
She digs the words out of the sky
She leaves them there for you to find

The way that you love dear
The fate of the world you leave behind
A way to the future
Making a moment built to last
You want to love well now's your chance

You hear the beat over the radio
You see the scene
A satellite picture show
You take her words out of the sky
She left them there
For you to find

The way that you love dear
The fate of the world you leave behind
A way to the future
Making a moment built to last
You want to love well now's your chanceÖ
Best Day of Your Life
Iím gonna race you to the fence
Iím gonna race you to the fence
Iím gonna chase you round the block round the block
Iím gonna chase you round the block
Come on jump out the door
You canít hold it back no more
Iíll show you how the birds learned how to fly

Iím gonna take you on a ride on a ride on a ride
Iím gonna take you on a ride
Iím gonna race you to the sky to the sky
Iím gonna race you to the sky

Come on jump out the door
You canít hold it down no more
Iíll show you how the beards learned how to fly
Donít mind leaving your nest
Donít mind making a mess
This might be the best day of your life

Iím gonna race you to the moon to the moon
Iím gonna race you to the moon
Weíre gonna get there real soon real soon
Hold your breath I bet that we will get there soon.

Come on jump out the door
You canít hold it back no more
Iíll show you how the beards learned how to fly
Donít mind leaving your nest
Donít mind making a mess
This might be the best day of your life
Wasting Time
I didnít know when I met you Iíd upset you
I didnít know I was taking both your eyes
Even the best intentions take us by surprise

How do you keep a secret, donít repeat it
How do you push away without a shove
Itís easier wasting time than breaking hearts you love

Maybe a boat on the ocean will bring good fortune
Maybe a gust of wind will keep us out at sea
Iíll be hoping for the wind that sets you free

Fate is just matter choosing sides

Itís easier wasting time than breaking hearts you love
Itís easier wasting time than breaking hearts you love
Itís easier wasting time than breaking hearts you love
Itís easier wasting time than breaking hearts you love
Itís easier wasting time than breaking hearts you love
Itís easier wasting time than breaking hearts you love

I didnít know when I met you Iíd upset you
I didnít know I was taking both your eyes
How do you live with a secret, donít repeat it
I didnít know I was taking both your eyes
Even the best intentions take us by surprise
Midnight Serenade
Words from a thousand miles away
At a lonely time of day
Leave it up to night to quietly remind us
Time though it mostly slips away
Doesn't seem to mind the wait
It's a midnight serenade
Do you feel the same as I do

Close your eyes
Think of what you have beside you
Even I understand the reasons why you stay

Oh I am stuck in someone elseís shoes
An unfamiliar view
But I promise not to do the things they do
I would never make you choose
I have so much less to lose
There's a world between these words and how we use them

Close your eyes
Think of what you have beside you
Even I understand the reasons why you stay

Oh oh oh oh...

I hide behind the waterfall
I wait for you to drink
I sing so you might hear these words
But sadly so might she
She knows you disappear sometimes
But knows that you will stay
And so I end this story with
One last serenade

Close your eyes
Think of what you have beside you
Even I understand the reasons why you'll stay
Oh My Darlin'
Katie Herzig and Trent Dabbs

We used to paint puddles in the sky
Jump around on trampolines and never go inside
Weíd wake up in the morning and decide
What we would do for the rest of our lives
But the rest of our lives came quickly

Oh my darliní
Oh my dear
Times is hard without you here
Oh my darliní
Oh my babe
How long will it take
To be carried away
To go back to the younger days

I wonder if youíre wondering outside
Still chasing with your fingers all the colors in the sky
Iím looking out my window for a clue
Leaving a sign and hoping it finds you
Iíll find you

Oh my darliní
Oh my dear
Times is hard without you here
Oh my darliní
Oh my babe
How long will it take
To be carried away
To go back to the younger daysÖ
Closest I Get
Katie Herzig and Cason Cooley
What if I wait and you donít show
If I left you half just to keep me whole
What if I held my breath so long
Would you notice the silence had lasted so long
What if the closest I get to the moment is now

I have seen love come and go
Oh I watched it pass with my heart held close
Thereís no easy way to know
If Iím looking back or Iím getting close
What if the closest I get to the moment is now

Love it has no guarantees
Which muse will lay its hands on me
We said the words we knocked on wood
And Iím still here waiting to see what could be
What if the closest I get to the moment is now
The Waking Sleep

For my soul to reach you
Must I always bleed
For my heart to feel you
Must it always beat

Even the waking sleep

I know timeís a wasting
It is chasing me
While the ice is melting
Into the sea

Even the waking sleep

I know thereís a purpose
I know thereís an end
I know you are worth it
Will I rise again

Thereís a bridge thatís burning
And the waterís near
I see you hurting
And I watch in fear
Will I watch you burning
You I love so dear

Even the waking sleep
Even the waking sleep
Lost and Found
Katie Herzig and Cason Cooley
I know you left me standing there
Out in the calm of the coldest air
I donít believe the words you said
But I canít find the words I want
Oh I canít find the words I want

If you were gone in another life
I donít believe I would just survive
I could feel you next to me
An escape from the world Iím in
Oh Iím afraid of the world Iím in


One day I will see heavenís reach
Iíll find the one who left me sleeping
Every war was another seed
That could feed every soul in need
Oh Iím warn by the war in me

Somebody found me here
Somebody held my breath
Somebody saved me from the world you left
If youíre gonna cry my tears
If youíre gonna hold my breath
If youíre gonna let me see the sun you set
Oh I am lost and found
Oh I am lost and found


Somebody found me here
Somebody held my breath
Somebody saved me from the world you left
If youíre gonna cry my tears
If youíre gonna hold my breath
If youíre gonna let me see the sun you set
Oh I am lost and found
Oh I am lost and found
Oh I am lost and found
Oh I am lost and found
Daisies and Pews
Soon we'll be sitting at the bottom
Making sense of all we've forgotten
My faith lies somewhere between daisies and pews
Making sense of all the good news

I might climb the highest peak
Disappear in another dream
Sit alone on a stone by the sea
Knowing and waiting
We are in love

Fire in my soul
Fire in my soul
When nights are cold

And when you do appear
You are my hope and my fear
Not by the land or the sea
But from the place that I breathe


Knowing and waiting
We are in Love
Live In Studio: Acoustic Trio (2009)

Apple Tree (2008)
Katie's Third Album
Songbird
Written by Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP)
Here I am again
Singing the same old tune
Holding everything as close as I can to you
If love is anywhere
Mine still belongs with you
But Iím holding it in my hand

She lays her head
Upon your shoulder
But all I see is the way that you hold her
You live in your house
With a beautiful view
And I live in an your apple tree

I am a songbird
Singing out your window
Telling stories in the shade
And I canít fly away
I canít fly away

Imagine me
Flying around the world
Or Italy on a terraced hill
No matter where lifeís taking me
I may still be up in your apple tree

I am a songbird
Singing out your window
Telling stories in the shade
And I canít fly away
I canít fly away
No I canít fly away
I canít fly away
Iíll follow wherever you go
ĎCause I canít fly away
I Want To Belong To You
Written by Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP) and Kim Richey (Red Equals Luck/Crossfire 3/BMI)
Have I ever seen such kindness
Such resigned delight all in one glance
Right when you pass me
I watch, you see
You smile, I breathe
Air in my chest
Iím trying my best

The sun left me so quickly
I am stuck under the moon
I want to belong to you

I pray no one will find you
Iíll stay right where I am
ĎTil you come back
Donít let me lose you
Before thereís a chance to begin

Suddenly light on my feet
With a sweet rearrange of the day
Everythingís changed now

One quick exchange
Itís not the same
Kind of goodbye
Gone with a sigh

The sun left me so quickly
I am stuck under the moon
I want to belong to you

I pray no one will find you
Iíll stay right where I am
ĎTil you come back
Donít let me lose you
Before thereís a chance to begin

I wanna belong to you

I pray no one will find you
Iíll stay right where I am
ĎTil you come back
Donít let me lose you
Before thereís a chance to begin
Hologram
Written by Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP)
Iím gonna let you down
Gonna toss you around
Gonna make you want everything you havenít found
Iím gonna hold your hand
Then ask you to stand
Ten feet away

Oh itís just like you said
I live in my head
Iím saving up all that I have Ďtil Iím dead
Itís always the same
And never the same way

But oh if you donít want me though
Iíll only want you more
I fall in love with hard to get
You know youíre just like me
A mystery with nothing more to see
A virtual reality

Iím in a love affair without a love song
Iím in the habit of having what I donít want
Iím just a hologram
You can see but donít touch me baby
Oh I bet you want me

I am taking up space Iím right out of place
Iím holding a half-hearted smile to your face
Itís pretty enough but watch out it fades away
Time is ticking so fast
Does anything last
Soon I will be just apart of your past
Iíll leave you with this
You hold on in blissful memories

Oh if you donít want me though
Iíll only want you more
I fall in love with hard to get
You know youíre just like me
A mystery with nothing more to see
A virtual reality

Iím in a love affair without a love song
Iím in the habit of having what I donít want
Iím just a hologram
You can see but donít touch me baby
Oh I bet you want me now

Now that you can see
Iím not, not what you make of me

Iím in a love affair without a love song
Iím in the habit of having what I donít want
Iím just a hologram
You can see but donít touch me baby
Oh I bet you want me now
How the West Was Won
Written by Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP)
I donít know how the west was won
How the ocean let all the sailors come
They came over one by one if only just to see

I donít know how happiness gets hidden in the wilderness
Iím leaving in the morning with my paddle and my lime

I donít know how to find you when
All Iíve been is a lighted window
Waiting for the dark to make itís way back into light

And you will hold me in your arms
And you will hold me in your arms

Maybe Iím just a pilgrim who is trying to make sense of you now
Pray the wind will take me where the space meets up with time
Where you will hold me in your arms
Wish You Well
Written by Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP)
I, I want to wish you well
I didnít watch you go
Cause I suppose I donít know how
I, I will remember you
Not the way you left but how you lived
And what you knew

I, I want to feel your hands
I want to feel your fire burning
Right from where I stand

Iíll find my way
Cause you showed me how

I, I want toknow itís you
When I hear your voice inside my head
Inside my room
I, want to touch the sky
I want to see the stars twinkle
Like they were your eyes

Iíll find my way
You showed me
Iíll find my way
Cause you showed me how

I, I want to smell your scent
I want to breathe the air I did before
Before you left

I, I want to wish you well
The only reason my heart beats
Is cause you showed it how

Iíll find my way
You show me
Iíll find my way
You show me
Iíll find my way
Cause you showed me how
You show me how
You showed me how
Sumatra
Written by Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP)
Everyone needs someone to touch them
Everyone needs someone to hold
So whyís it so damn hard to love when weíre alone

Iíve lived a lifetime telling stories
About the way we live and die
When love was born it was a mystery
Iím yet to find

And when I wake up in the morning
There is a twinkle in my eye
That maybe someday you will meet me
In the light

Iíll let you whisper
Iíll let you hold me
Do what you came to
You are the only
I will not cry out
I will not fight you
Iíll let you have me
All that you want to
Iíll give you sunsets
Iíll give you kisses
Iíll give you songs that
That no one else hears
Itís not enough love
Until you know me
Until you touch me
Until you hold me
I Will Follow
Written by Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP) and Kim Richey (Red Equals Luck/Crossfire 3/BMI)
You were in a dream I had
Doing dishes at the laundry mat
And then you smiled at me
You said lets hide and seek
Iím gonna count to three
Where did you go

One step forward two steps back
So funny I forgot to laugh
You lead me down the garden path
And I will follow
I will follow

I saw you on a downtown street
Eating peaches in an apple tree
You said take my hand
Weíll be a marching band
Theyíll love us in Japan
Where did you go?

One step forward two steps back
So funny I forgot to laugh
You lead me down the garden path
And I will follow
I will follow
I Hurt Too
Written by Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP)
When youíre weary
And haunted
And your life is not what you wanted
When youíre trying so hard to find it

When the lies speak the loudest
When your friends are starting to leave
When youíre broken by people like me

I hurt too, I hurt too

When an ocean sits right between us
There is no sign that weíll ever cross
You should know now that I feel the loss

I hurt too, I hurt too

Even though you are drowning in valleyís of echoes
I believe there is peace in those hills up ahead
You will climb Ďtil you find places youíll never let go
And I will also be here praying just like I said

I hurt too, I hurt too
Gypsy Girl
Written by Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP)
Audrey baby
Whereís your tambourine
Gypsy girl around the world your sailing
Cardboard waves
Moving left and right
Catch the breeze that moves you to the sunlight
Do your best
Get here soon
Listen for the clouds that I have sent you
And you will hear them
You will hear them cry
You will hear them
You will hear them cry
Iíve been sleeping
Harder than a stone
Trying not to wake up Ďtil you get home
Shovel
Written by Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP)
Hearts bend Ďcause they canít break
When they canít take
All that is given to them

Glass eyes on your sad face
Itís a sad story somebodyís written on you
Love in my heart, right from the start
So please take me with you

Birds sing out the window
Sing out the window sing
Do you hear those birds
sing out the window
Sing out the window sing

Take me with your shovel
Weíll burry all your troubles
All your troubles

Oh the light is always on you
Always in the light
The light is always on you
Always on you
Always in the light
Forevermore
Written by Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP) and Tim Lauer (Sister Bee Music/ASCAP)
You could be my white night
And I could be your fairy tale
And you could come and save me
But that is not the end

I will wear will wear a white dress
You will paint a sunset
Life will be a love fest
Thatís how it all begins

Say say, oh playmate
Come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three
Climb up my apple tree
Slide down my rainbow
Into my cellar door
And weíll be jolly friends
Forever more

But the world can spin so madly
And love can hurt so badly
And stories end so sadly
But this is not the end

You still have my heartache
I still have your sweater
Things they will get better
Oh, but not today

Say say oh playmate
I cannot play with you
My dollyís got the flue
Boo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo
Aint got no rainbow
Aint got no cellar door
But weíll be jolly friends
Forever more

Say say, oh playmate
Come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three
Climb up my apple tree
Slide down my rainbow
Into my cellar door
And weíll be jolly friends
Forever more
Weightless (2006)
Katie's Second Album
Jack and Jill
Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP) and Kim Richey (Red Equals Luck/BMI) 8/12/05
She wore that dress like it was a Saturday
Pretty as a summer rose picked in the morning
He held her had like she was a mystery
One he couldnít quite believe
Was walking with him

They were
High up on a hill
With something to say
And daylight to kill
Time slips away
The way that it will

Round and around dancing round the question posed
Flip a coin and watch it go down into the wishing well
Two-step sunset there goes another day
Another chance to give away secrets they keep to themselves

They were
High up on a hill
With something to say
And daylight to kill
Time slips away
The way that it will

Darkness falls without a sound
They come tumbling
Tumbling after
Sweeter Than This
Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP) and Lisa Carver (Sony/ATV Cross Keys Publishing/Big Alpha Writerís Group/ASCAP) 8/15/2005
Life is in boxes in back of our car
Driving around with our dreams in a jar
And itís all right here

Iíll feed you ramen and youíll braid my hair
Anything goes when you donít even care
When youíre this far in love

If it gets any sweeter than this I donít want to know
I donít want to know

I want a garden and you want a coke
Living is simple when lovers are broke
You can fix anything with a kiss

If it gets any sweeter than this I donít want to know
If it gets any sweeter than this I donít want to know

You read your book baby Iíll float away
Taking a nap on your lap in the shade
I could hold your hand all day

If it gets any sweeter than this I donít want to knowÖ
Until You Try
Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP) 7/28/2005
You said it the perfect way
On your own and out loud
You said it the perfect way
You were strong and resound
They didnít want to hear it
But itís time

Youíre living in your high hopes
And I know that youíre scared
Cause there is a hell below
Anytime you go there
And even the perfect rhyme is a hell of a find

You wonít know until you try
You wonít know until you try

You will be looking back
On the days that were happy
Itíll be hard to see
Why youíd chosen to leave
But never forget the feeling
When itís right

And you wonít know until you try
You wonít know until you try
You wonít know until you try
You wonít know until you try
Crazy
Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP) 10/2005
What have they done to the birds and the bees
The cradle was robbed the nest make believe
And theyíre selling their souls for the purpose of losing it all

What have they done to the cracks in the walls
The world has been painted to cover it all
Now everyoneís afraid to admit that theyíre getting old

Oh my lord Iím told

What have they done to the revolution
They call it a war and claimed it was useless
The voice of the ages will never be heard quite the same

What have they done to the innocent mind
Spoiled it and twisted the truth into lies
Now all of the peace lovers are having to draw up their swords

Oh my Lord Iím torn
If Iím going crazy then crazy is just that Iím born

What have they done to Jesusí life
Theyíre making it cruel, say itís a lie
But they still ask for his peace Ďcause they feel it inside

And what have they done with the two thousand years
Made history in to a faithful fear
But the cracks donít expire just Ďcause the surface is dry

Oh my Lord Iím tired
If Iím going crazy, then crazy is just my desire
If Iím going crazy, crazy is just what Iíve seen
If Iím going crazy then crazy is just in between
Fools Gold
Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP), Jeremy Lister Music (Jeremy Lister Music/Warner Chappell) and Kate York (Blue Water/BMI) 8/17/05
From the time you said hello and whatís your name
You were work of art playing me like a little game
Now you can break my heart and I will love you just the same

I can see through your eyes
Your fingers crossed by your side
But I need your little shiny lies

You promised the world and opened up your door
And the words you fed left me wanting more
Now Iím left here locked out looking for a key to score

I can see through your eyes
Your fingers crossed by your side
But I need your little shiny lies

Fools gold shiningÖ

You can break my heart and I will want you just the same
I can see through your eyes
Your fingers crossed by your side
But I need your little shiny lies
You can break my heart and I will love you just the same
I can see through your eyes
Your fingers crossed by your side
But I need your little shiny lies
The Offer
Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP) and Ruby Amanfu (Famous Music Corp./Roobytunes Publishing/ASCAP) 8/15/0
I have a proposal a deal we could make
Read it over slowly and see whatís at stake
A resume puffed up or full of accolades
Itís what I have none of

Iím not good at soap boxing matters of heart
I donít have a life thatís a great work of art
Though I am not trained I think I know enough
I can offer love

So choose
And make sure you know what youíre getting into
This wonít be one of those love and leave experiments
That might not work for you

Do you know what happens when hearts are afraid
They donít see when true love is right in their face
But you donít have to worry you donít have to wait
To take my offer up

So choose
And make sure you know what youíre getting into
This wonít be one of those love and leave experiments
That might not work for you
Charlie Chaplin
Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP and Music Guru Publishing/ASCAP)
We are entertainers living in a scene where nobody slows down
Busy making little pieces into things that dare to make a sound
Fall like an angel, try like a fool and dare to walk away
Each of us has got a little Charlie Chaplin inside us

Saying, hey fellas why donít we go where the movies are silent and life is as big as a stage

Waiting on clock or waiting on a view and hoping itís new
We all got to find something to do
Well I say we take on the strange and insane
Come on and pick up our hats and our canes

And say, hey fellas why donít we go where the movies are silent and life is as big as a stage, life is as big as a stage, life is as big as a stage, life is as big as a stage

Waddle your way to the sunset today
Waddle your way to the sunset today
Waddle your way to the sunset today
Anything for a laugh
Anything for a laugh

Hey fellas why donít we go where the movies are silent and life is as big as a stage
Butterfly
Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP and Music Guru Publishing/ASCAP)
I am a butterfly
I sweep so silent
I land upon the light so I can see the color of my wings
Iíll always fly away to find another
Old light to make me stay
But on my wings, the color always stays

No matter where I fly no matter who I land on
Can I expect to change when I was born this way
What do I expect to lose when I land on you

Youíre much too bright for me
I cannot take it
Iíll stay indefinitely
Until I feel my wings begin to burn
You donít belong with me but I am taking
This piece of revelry
Until feel ever wide awake

No matter where I fly no matter who I land on
Can I expect to change when I was born this way
What do I expect to lose when I land on you

I will never change for you
I will never change for you
But Iím not the same without you

I am a butterfly
I sweep to silent
I land upon the light
So I can see the color of my wings
Not Even Close
Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP and Music Guru Publishing/ASCAP) 2005
I have a dream of living a life thatís easier said than done
Stare in the mirror, Iím unfascinated with everything I have done
Iím faking my way, living it down
Oh my god Iím lazy and Iím frenzied
Licking my wounds and moving ahead
But I canít take this wine and bread

Iím not even close to where I want to be (x 2)

All of the people, as small as we are, weíre crying out with our hands
Feeding the poor and feasting on sunsets
Take it away my friend
All of the hands are having their way, licking their palms for a taste of grace
Iím saving myself for all of the moments that Iíll never have

Iím not even close to where I want to be (x 4)

All of the people, as small as we are, weíre crying out with our hands
Iím unfascinated, as small as I am, nothing else here is grand
So take me away and move me ahead so I can take a taste of wine and bread
Iím living it down, itís all that I have
This is about the things Iíll ever see

Iím not even close to where I want to be (x 4)

And Iím unfascinated by everything else and me
Weightless
Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP and Music Guru Publishing/ASCAP) 3/2006
Green, the color of the trees that grow while I am barely breathing
Entangled in hate and love
I canít tell if I am numb or feeling

ĎCause I am broken hearted and you are beautiful
I am undecided and you are weightless

Sun, behind the blinds but I canít open what I canít find
Lies that taste so sweet
Iím not craving anything I need

I am broken hearted and you are beautiful
I am undecided and you are weightless
Jenny Lynn
Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP and Music Guru Publishing/ASCAP) 2005
All at once your city crumbles like Babylon
Even the gardens youíve been hanging on
Disappear before your eyes
Take your time, let the words sink in
Before you say your mind
Heaven knows we all get lost sometimes
And you will find your way back

Wounded, you let your guard down and feel stupid
You wish you never would have trusted
Your heart in someone elseís hands
But itís all okay
I think you may have made the best mistake
I think weíre made to give ourselves away
ĎCause thereís no other way to live

Jenny Lynn, I wish I had your thin skin
I wish that I could let the love right in
Maybe Iíd rather feel the pain
ĎCause freedom is
A naked heart that always dares to give
A willingness to let the tenderness
Be taken as it may
Diamond Ring
Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP and Music Guru Publishing/ASCAP) 5/2005
Spot light on a golden night from a birds eye itís the perfect place to be queen
Or so they believe

An old song with a long story but make way for his new glory to be
You couldnít wait for the scene

But Papa donít buy me a diamond ring
ĎCause I ainít got time for what youíre thinking
Iím a one man band with a late night show
You gotta let me go

Bone dry in the naked light I got my closed eyes so I canít see what you mean
When you give them to me

Bomb drop from the flower shop and the nice guy steals the air from my wings
You should have thrown them at me

But Papa donít buy me a diamond ring
ĎCause I ainít got time for what youíre thinking
Iím a one man band with a late night show
You gotta let me go

Spot light on a golden night from a birds eye itís the perfect place to be queen
And they will believe

But Papa donít buy me a diamond ring
ĎCause I ainít got time for what youíre thinking
Iím a one-man band with a late night show
You gotta let me go
Child I Can See Ya
Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP) 8/2005
Donít hide child I can see ya
Youíre too scared to come home
Just leave all of your worries out there
Where they belong

What dream keeps you running
From New York to LA
You must be so hungry
For some place you can stay

Oh I can see ya
Youíre almost there
Oh I can see ya
Youíre almost there

I hope you know I love you
Even when are gone
I hope someday youíll see that
All these roads lead to one

Oh I can see ya
Youíre almost there
Oh I can see ya
Youíre almost there
Youíre almost there

I live in the valleys
I live under your bed
I dwell in the silence
That you keep from your head

Oh I can see ya
Youíre almost there
Oh I can see ya
Youíre almost there
Middle
Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP) 6/2005
Split yourself down the middle
Take one half away
Make one seem the best so the least can have its way
Split yourself down the middle
Make one side the past
Youíre left with the future and maybe it will last

Sell all of your burdens
Keep all of your prayers
And then say goodbye to the life that got you here
It isnít as easy as I thought itíd be
Choosing the side that is everything I need

Split yourself down the middle
Take one half away
Make one seem the best so the least can have its way
Split yourself down the middle
Make one side the past
And now itís the future and baby itíll last
