Lyrics:

get back up
(jesse rice/katie rogers/alan bennett)

i've been knocked down, walked on, kicked around, lost found
brought down to my knees
i've been tied up, bad lucked, got stuck, too much insecurity
i could have crumbled under all the strain, of who i'm supposed to be
but that ain't me, that ain't me

i get back up, i stand tall
in the face of all the doors that slammed my best laid plans
to pieces on the floor
i get back up, i move on
and all the things that caused the pain now make me strong enough
to get back up

i said, "yes sir, yes ma'am" to all the wrong questions, always tryin' to please
i tried their way, the highway, bad breaks, mistakes
burnt by broken dreams
and it took a while to figure out, i could have given up easily
but that ain't me, that ain't me

i get back up, i stand tall
in the face of all the doors that slammed my best laid plans
to pieces on the floor
i get back up, i move on
and all the things that caused the pain now make me strong enough
to get back up

and though the world is crazy, i won't let it faze me
i get back up, i stand tall, i move on, yeah

i get back up, i stand tall
in the face of all the doors that slammed my best laid plans
to pieces on the floor
i get back up, i move on
and all the things that caused the pain now make me strong enough
to get back up

i've been knocked down, walked on, kicked around, lost found
brought down to my knees
but i get back up

there are moments
(katie rogers/jason "slim" gambill)

once in a while when a door swings open
i keep on walking, i don't go inside
all that i want is to get where i'm going
with no time to enjoy the ride

if i keep my mind on only tomorrow
i'm gonna miss out on now

there are moments in my life when i know where i'm going
the future seems clear and easy to see
there are moments in my world when i'm blind and ignoring
and i've let those moments get away from me
i've let those moments get away from me

i went for a walk the path was unfamiliar
at a crossroad i had a choice to make
i felt myself drawn to the road less traveled
but i still went the easy way

if my mind's only set on my destination
the journey may slip away

there are moments in my life when i know where im going
the future seems clear and easy to see
there are moments in my world when i am blind and ignoring
and i've let those moments get away from me
i've let those moments get away from me

there are moments in my life
there are moments in my world
there are moments in my life
there are moments in my world

there are moments in my life
the future's clear and easy to see
there are moments in my world
i won't let those moments get away from me

what kind of life
(stephan sharp/katie rogers)

misses jones died at 83 today
that was all that they wrote on her obituary page
she spent her life with no family of her own
just a house on a hill with a gate that kept her locked up all alone
she never let anybody in

now what kind of life would that be?
to never share with anyone your hopes and your dreams
and what kind of joy could that bring?
when love is always pushed aside 'cause you don't believe it's what you need
tell me what kind of life would that be?

she got married in her senior year
after college the man she loved, slowly disappeared
no hugs hello and no kiss goodnight
just the motions of a life with no emotion and no end in sight
she never thought that is would come to this

now what kind of life would that be?
to lose the one who used to share your hopes and your dreams
and what kind of joy could that bring?
when love is always pushed aside while you still believe it's what you need
tell me what kind of life would that be

imagine a life, where you are never alone
and the ones that you need never walk away
now picture yourself in a life where you are loved just as you are

now what kind of life that would be
to always have someone there
to share your hopes and dreams
and oh what a joy that would bring
when love remains and never fades
and gives you what you need 'cause you believe
oh what kind of life that would be
what a beautiful life that would be

run girl
(katie rogers/alan bennett)

i tried to bite my tongue every time you showed up on my doorstep
at two a.m. with your sunglasses on
dolce and gabanna can't hide a tear-stained face, black & blue eyes
you swore to me he would never "do to you again"
you tell me "it's over, i can't do it anymore"
how many times have i heard that line before?
you better

run girl, run girl
you can't win this fight
listen to me you know that i'm right
before he takes your life
you better run girl

i see you packed your suitcase this time i hope you filled it
with everything you need 'cause you'll never see him again
don't feed me lame excuses, girl you know it's useless
you can't turn that little boy into a man
'cause you're not just his doormat to walk on
look at yourself in the mirror and tell me you're worth more
you better

run girl, run girl
you can't win this fight
listen to me you know that i'm right
before he takes your life
you better run girl

i know you're hurting deep inside
you wanted more for your life
i wanna hear you say you're never going back
don't go back, don't back yeah

run girl run girl, you can't win
listen to me yeah
run girl, run girl
you can't win this fight
listen to me you know that i'm right
before he takes your life
you better run girl, run girl
listen to me you can't win
you better run girl

get over yourself
(alan bennett/katie rogers)

just because you want it doesn't mean you get it
things don't always go your way
trust me i've been there and it seems a little scary
believe there are brighter days
so stop thinking that the world isn't on your side
there's more to life so open up your eyes

get over yourself
just let go
get over yourself
take control
and get over, get over, get over
get over yourself

take a look around you look at what you've got
tell me what you think is so bad
if you're wanting more what are you waiting for
quit complaining and get off of your
and stop waiting on the world to change for you
because no one else can hold you back but you

get over yourself
just let go
get over yourself
take control
get over, get over, get over
get over yourself

blaming everybody always got an explanation
never your fault it's the situation
you want to change, then change your attitude

and get over yourself
just let go
get over yourself
yeah

get over yourself
just let go
get over yourself
take control
get over, get over, get over
over, get over, get over
get over yourself

lay me down
(katie rogers/stephan sharp)

when i'm lost, i need you to find me
when i'm broken, i need you to pull me together again
and right now i feel like i'm falling apart
so let me crash into your arms

won't you lay me down
where i can melt away
and without a sound
i hear what i need you to say
as you lay me down

when i'm afraid, you know how to calm
when i run, you know how to bring me back where i belong
and right now i'm weak and i feel out of reach
so pull me back into your arms

won't you lay me down
where i can melt away
and without a sound
i hear what i need you to say
as you lay me down

lay me down, lay me down
and never let go of me

won't you lay me down
where i can melt away
and without a sound
i hear what i need you to say
as you lay me down, lay me down
lay me down

keep it real
(alan bennett/katie rogers)

opening up my eyes
finally seeing things for what they are
stepping out of a world
where i tried to be somebody i just wasn't

i can't go back, i'm done with that
this is who i am

truly, honestly with no apologies
unashamed to be who i am
i just can't pretend i'm something other than
who i know i am
i need to be true
and keep it real

time and time and time again
i've fallen into someone else's version of me
i lost myself in the lie
'til i found that i was really not so good at faking

i can't go back, enough of that
take me as i am

truly, honestly with no apologies
unashamed to be who i am
i just can't pretend i'm something other than
who i know i am
i need to be true
and keep it real

let the world see me for me
i'm not hiding anymore
i am just being me, just being me
truly, honestly this is really me
yeah

i won't pretend, i'm something other than
who i know i am
truly, honestly with no apologies
unashamed to be who i am
i won't pretend, i'm something other than
who i am
i need to be true
that is all i can do
to keep it real

waiting for goodbye
(katie rogers/alan bennett)

cigarettes in the ashtray, whiskey on the table
just the way you left them, kitchen light's still on
the ring you swore you'd wear forever is lying on the counter
i ain't sleeping since you've been gone

how do you just walk away, leave all that you know?
come back here and show me how it's done
i can't do this on my own as hard as i try
i'm still here at home
waiting for goodbye

the grass has grown over the fence we built last fall
the porch swing hasn't moved in a year
and i keep trying to forget the smell of your cologne
i wish the echoes of our laughter would finally disappear

how do you just walk away, leave all that you know?
come back here and show me how it's done
i can't do this on my own as hard as i try
i'm still here at home
waiting for goodbye

i can't move on without knowing
how could you just leave?

how do you just walk away, leave all that you know?
come back here and show me how it's done
i can't do this on my own believe me i've tried
and i'm still here at home
waiting for goodbye

easy love
(alan bennett/katie rogers)

loneliness is behind us
it took a while, to relearn how to trust
oh easy love
it's amazing the struggles we went through
'til we found each other
oh and this easy love

letting go of the way it's supposed to be
living in the moment of just you and me

oh, easy love
uncomplicated baby what were we waiting for
oh, easy love
we've got an easy love
easy love

we stay up talking for hours about nothing at all
wrapped up in each other
oh and this easy love
it's so simple it's crazy how it just works
the way we fit together
oh making easy love

feeling free being who we are naturally
waking up every day living a dream

oh, easy love
uncomplicated baby what were we waiting for
oh, easy love
we've got an

easy love
we've got an easy love, baby
easy love

an easy love, easy love
uncomplicated baby what were we waiting for
oh, easy love
we've got an easy love
easy love
oh, easy love
what were we waiting for
oh, easy love
we've got an easy love
easy love

watch out!
(katie rogers/alan bennett)

walking down the street trying to clear my mind
everywhere i turn to go temptation's all i find
and mama tells me every day "the Lord above He knows"
she's saying watch out girl because the devil's gonna get your soul

i'm wading in the water
standing like a stone
running through the fire
saying watch out girl because the devil's gonna get your soul
watch out girl because the devil's gonna get your soul

but when i'm here with you i just lose my mind
i can't breathe and i get weak, i'm going crazy inside
the things i want to do to you well mama shouldn't know
she'd tell me watch out girl because the devil's gonna get your soul

i'm wading in the water
standing like a stone
running through the fire
saying watch out girl because the devil's gonna get your soul
watch out girl because the devil's gonna get your soul

i can hear her voice so loud
i'm trying to block it out
how can it be wrong when it feels so right?

watch out girl, watch out girl, devil's gonna get your soul
watch out girl, watch out girl, devil's gonna get your soul
watch out girl, watch out girl, devil's gonna get your soul
watch out girl because the devil's gonna get your soul

i'm wading in the water
standing like a stone
running through the fire
saying watch out girl (oh the devil's gonna get ya)
wading in the water
standing like a stone
running through the fire
saying watch out girl because the devil's gonna get your soul
watch out girl because the devil's gonna get your soul
watch out girl because the devil's gonna get your soul
