On the Fence 04:17
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

Fall Down 03:01
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

Miles Away 05:53
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

Adversary 04:33
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?

Final Show 05:25
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

Goodbye 04:08
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
