Track Name: On the Fence
On the Fence
Music and Lyrics by Erika Hansen

I met you on a summer day
You called me up, I let you know
That I was gonna walk away
You’re a lot like me
But even when the time had passed,
The weight of your words – forgot
I was gonna take my place
On the fence
Fallin’ off

So let’s be good friends
Let’s be the very best of friends
Let’s be good friends
Let’s be the very best of friends

But things haven’t been the same
Since you said we should be friends
I’ve been kickin’ at the dirty streets
Waiting for my life to make sense
Confusion’s not the final stage
It’s just another word for where you’ve been,
What you lost
I was gonna take my place
On the fence
But I’m fallin’ off

Oh, through the trees
A bittersweet street melody
Comes lilting through the sultry summer air
Oh, the voice that sings to me
It says “Let’s be good friends,
Let’s be the very best of friends”
Let’s be good friends,
Let’s be the very best of friends
Let’s be good friends,
Let’s be the very best of friends

Now that summer’s come and gone
I don’t know where the story goes
Underneath the glowing full moon haze
It seems enough for me to know
Confusion’s not the final stage
It’s just another word for where you’ve been,
What you lost
I was gonna take my place
One the fence, but I’ve fallen off
So let’s be good friends,
Let’s be the very best of friends
Let’s be good friends
Let’s be the very best of friends
Track Name: Fall Down
Fall Down
Music and Lyrics by Erika Hansen

Tell me how I got this far
The race to what I’m heading to hit
Seems I still know who you are,
That’s the part I’m aiming to miss

Because you know there’s more than one way to fall down
You can see it my way still I won’t take what you found
I wanna get away from the sound of the pouring rain

Take a moment, take your time
There’s nothing here, but what’s here is mine
If you want it, take it all
I’ll be upright and poised for the fall

‘cause you know there’s more than one way to fall down
You can see it my way still I won’t take what you found
I wanna get away from the sound of the pouring rain

‘cause you know there’s more than one way to fall down
You can see it my way still I won’t take what you found
I wanna get away from the sound of the pouring rain
Driving faster down the highway, never found
A crueler way than my way still I won’t take what you found
I wanna get away from the sound of the pouring rain

You thought that you would feel much better but you don’t
All the things I warned, I thought I told you so
You thought that you would feel much better but you don’t
So put your hurt in words, I thought I told you so
Track Name: Miles Away
Miles Away
Music and Lyrics by Erika Hansen

I want you so
Sometimes when we’re apart I wonder
If you feel it though
When you’re out there on your own
When you’re miles away
And I’m here alone

I want you so
Sometimes when we’re apart I wonder
If you feel it though
When you’re out there on your own
When you’re miles away
And I’m here alone

I must confess
Outside the fallen leaves make such a pretty scene
The city is a mess
We don’t have to see it though
I’m wide awake and there’s no one home
You’re miles away and I’m here alone
Track Name: Adversary
Adversary
Music and Lyrics by Erika Hansen

It seems unnecessary
How you’ve become my adversary
But a foe to tangle with me would be no stranger
For my arms to carry
I’ve been wishing away knowin’
Not once the way the wind’s been blowin’
A precautionary measure
Let’s stand and face the odds together

Because I believe that every obstacle is my chance to evolve
As it were, I believe in a time and a place where the lines don’t blur
Wouldn’t you feel safer inside of my arms?

It seems unnecessary
Now you’ve become my adversary
But a foe to tangle with me would be no stranger
For my arms to carry
I’ve been wishing away knowin’
Not once the way the wind’s been blowin’
A precautionary measure
We’ll stand and face the odds, together

Because I believe that every obstacle is my chance to evolve
As it were, I believe in a time and a place where the lines don’t blur
Wouldn’t you feel safer inside of my arms?

I’ve gotta believe that every obstacle is my chance to evolve
And I can tell you’re hurt
But I believe in a time and a place where the lines don’t blur
Wouldn’t you feel safer inside of my arms?

I’ve gotta believe that every obstacle is my chance to evolve
As it were, I believe in a time and a place where the lines don’t blur
Wouldn't you feel safer inside of my arms?

I’ve gotta believe that every obstacle is my chance to evolve
And I can tell you’re hurt
But I believe in a time and a place where the lines don’t blur
Wouldn’t you feel safer inside of my arms?
Track Name: Final Show
Final Show
Music and Lyrics by Erika Hansen

I wanted to dream
Under the blue sky
Where the world as it seems
Is the one thing that feels right

So tell me you’ll stay
We’ll replay this charade
I know at the end of the day
You know whose side you’re on

But I’ve been down this way before,
I know what’s comin’ next
To the second act stealing
I will not confess

The lights flicker and fade
But you can’t stop the sound
When the whole world is listening
For the slow pull of the unknown
And you can’t fight the feeling
It’s like a dream in the night
Like a fire so hot and fast that burns so bright
When you feel it, you just gotta feel it

No, this won’t be, I feel it go
Well it was such an eye-opener
So this will be our final show
Where the truth becomes the liar

Well you say that you’ve gone before
But you’ve never been
And you’ll never go
This sullen pain cuts right through me baby
It hurts to be here
But I’ll never show
Well you say that you’ve gone before
But you’ve never been
And you’ll never go
This sullen pain cuts right through me baby
It hurts to be here
But I’ll never show
There have been so many times
That I’ve cried over you
And you’ll never know
This sullen pain cuts right through me, baby
It hurts to be here
But I’ll never show
Track Name: Goodbye
Goodbye
Music and Lyrics by Erika Hansen

It was just the other day we were laughing, having fun
I never would have seen the wall that was to come
And I meant the things I said
When I left you in a note
Your non-apology, regret you wouldn’t show
So if you see me around
I might look the other way
I won’t know what to do
You won’t know what to say
And eventually I’ll find
I don’t wonder what went wrong
Don’t trace the streets for me
Don’t wonder where I’ve gone

It’s okay, I’m not afraid
To tell you goodbye
When all is said there’s no mistaking
The truth for a line, I know this time
It’s okay, I’m not afraid
To tell you goodbye
I’ll show you what it looks like
Goodbye, baby

You’re afraid to be alone
Are you lying to yourself?
Because it’s plain to see
That you’re in love with someone else
And I really didn’t care
It’s not like I didn’t know
But wanted to be free
To see where this could go
So if you see me around
I might look the other way
I won’t know what to do
You won’t know what to say
And eventually I’ll find
I don’t wonder what when wrong
Don’t trace the streets for me
Don’t wonder where I’ve gone

‘Cause I’m not afraid
To tell you goodbye
And it’s so clear that you’ve been taking
Me for a ride, I know this time
It’s okay I’m not afraid to tell you goodbye
I’ll show you what it looks like
Goodbye, baby

Goodbye, baby, goodbye
Goodbye, baby, goodbye
Goodbye, baby, goodbye

It’s okay, I’m not afraid
To tell you goodbye
When all is said there’s no mistaking
The truth for a line, I know this time
It’s okay, I’m not afraid
To tell you goodbye
I’ll show you what it looks like
Goodbye, baby

Goodbye, baby, goodbye
Goodbye, baby, goodbye
Goodbye, baby, goodbye
