Words & Music © 2014 Martha Groves Perry V Something’s changed, rearranged, and it’s something good Tossed about, sorted out, or just understood Heart and mind realigned just like they should ‘Cause something’s changed… V Singing out, dumping doubt as best I could Ease my mind, skip the lines just like I should Make it new, follow through on the likelihood That something’s changed… C No longer running away No longer thinking they’ll pay I’m making space in my head For something, oh something… B Oooo Oooo freedom at last Oooo Oooo owning my past Oooo Oooo clearing my mind Oooo Oooo trusting it’s time V One less face, fear erased where silence stood Miles beyond, loosened bond and it’s oh so good Time’s a thief, sweet relief ‘cause it’s understood That something’s changed… C No longer running away No longer thinking they’ll pay I’m making space in my head For something, oh something … Oh something good

Words & Music © 2012 Martha Groves Perry V Being in school and colored pencils and figuring out what to draw. Can’t be too easy, must be worthwhile, requires an effort that is raw. C If I am short on air, it’s only because I refuse to breathe. If I rise above despair, it’s because I’m committed to reality. V Being in ruins and broken plans and figuring out what went wrong. Pulling back from the edge of collapse and owning up to the flaws. C If I am short on air, it’s only because I refuse to breathe. If I rise above despair, it’s because I’m committed to reality. B Trying to make something of life, not have life make something of me. Take hold of my colored pencils and fill in the part that’s me, you’ll see. V Being in truth and sweet discomfort and figuring out what’s my call. Can’t be too easy, must be worthwhile, requires an effort that is raw. C If I am short on air, it’s only because I refuse to breathe. If I rise above despair, it’s because I’m committed to reality.

Words & Music © 2012 Martha Groves Perry & Greg Newlon V I just can’t leave it alone; I’m picking it to the bone. I act as if the scab’s the thing, when the wound below is festering. C I can’t leave it alone, the scab that has grown I’ll need a backbone.............. to let it all go. V I work you over in my mind, but you’re just one in a line. It’s feeding my OCD to think you’re something that I need. C I can’t leave it alone, the scab that has grown I’ll need a backbone.............. to let it all go. B Can’t rush, won’t heal, don’t care how it feels patience , God’s time, your will, not mine I will obey, it’s just so hard to take V I don’t get what I deserve. I don’t think I’d have the nerve. I’m addicted to something I think; it’s really no different than drink. C I can’t leave it alone, the scab that has grown I’ll need a backbone.............. to let it all go.

i see you 02:51
Words & Music © 2014 Martha Groves Perry V I see you. Deep within that dried out shell a clear view Peering through those shifting eyes you’re see-through You plead for a witness to your pain Your prison is banging in my brain. V It’s a secret. You held my gaze a long time and you told it. It leaked out of your eyes, and I behold it. More than you ever meant to tell. You burden me with your private hell. C And I’m longing for my heart to sing I’ll ring out like a bell; I’ve got so much more to tell And I will be free. B Break out of your dried up shell; speak your truth all by yourself Find your own escape from what you’ve hidden from yourself. Leave me out of all your pain; I can do without the stain. I need unadulterated liberty. V You’re hiding. I won’t try to seek you ‘cause I’m finding To live my life without you is exciting. I am no longer in your cage. The best way to love is disengage. C And I’m longing for my heart to sing I’ll ring out like a bell; I’ve got so much more to tell And I will be free. I hold the key. I'm free.
