(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Gaslighter

Gaslighter, denier
Doin' anything to get your ass farther
Gaslighter, big timer
Repeating all of the mistakes of your father

We moved to California and we followed your dreams
I believed in the promises you made to me
Swore that night 'till death do us part
But you lie-lie-lie-lie-lied
Hollywood welcomed you with open doors
No matter what they gave you, you still wanted more
Acting all above it when our friends divorced
What a lie-lie-lie-lie-lie
You're such a

Gaslighter, denier
Doin' anything to get your ass farther
Gaslighter, big timer
Repeating all of the mistakes of your father
Gaslighter, you broke me
You're sorry, but where's my apology?
Gaslighter, you liar

You thought I wouldn't see it if you put it in my face
Give you all my money, you'll gladly walk away
You think it's justifiable, I think it's pretty cruel
And you know you lie best when you lie to you
'Cause, boy, you know exactly what you did on my boat
And, boy, that's exactly why you ain't comin' home
Save your tired stories for your new someone else
'Cause they're lie-lie-lie-lie-lies
Look out, you little

Gaslighter, denier
Doin' anything to get your ass farther
Gaslighter, big timer
Repeating all of the mistakes of your father
Gaslighter, you broke me
You're sorry, but where's my apology?
Gaslighter, you liar

You just had to start a fire, had to start a fire
Couldn't take yourself on a road a little higher
Had to burn it up, had to tear it down
Tried to say I'm crazy
Babe, we know I'm not crazy, that's you
Gaslighting
You're a lie-lie-lie-liar
Oh, honey, that's you
Gaslighting
You made your bed and then your bed caught fire
Gaslighter, I'm your mirror
Standin' right here until you can see how you broke me
Yeah, I'm broken
You're still sorry, and there's still no apology

Gaslighter, denier
Doin' anything to get your ass farther
Gaslighter, big timer
Repeating all of the mistakes of your father
Gaslighter, you broke me (gaslighter)
You're sorry, but where's my apology?
Gaslighter, you liar

Sleep at Night

Not that you asked
But I'm getting past everything
Everything
I'm doing okay
Just glad it's not yesterday
Huh

My husband's girlfriend's husband just called me up
How messed up is that?
It's so insane that I have to laugh
But then I think about our two boys trying to become men
There's nothing funny about that

How do you sleep at night?
How do you tell those lies?
Lookin' me in the eye
Livin' a double life
Tell me, how do you sleep at night?
How do you sleep at night?

You're only as sick as your secrets
So I'm telling everything
Half of the shit
You won't believe
But I know it's not unique to me

Remember you brought her to our show at the Hollywood Bowl
She said, "I love you, I'm such a fan"
I joked that you can love me as long as long as you don't love my man
There's nothin' funny about that

How do you sleep at night?
How do you tell those lies?
Lookin' me in the eye
Livin' a double life
Tell me, how do you sleep at night?
How do you sleep at night?

So caught up in your story
You don't care what you're ruining
So caught up in your story
But you don't care

How do you sleep at night?
How do you tell those lies?
Lookin' me in the eye
Livin' a double life
Tell me, how do you sleep at night?
How do you sleep at night?

How do you tell those lies?
How do you tell those lies?
Lookin' me in the eye
Livin' a double life
Tell me, how do you sleep at night?
How do you sleep at night?

Texas Man

I could use a Texas man
But one who can feel at home
Yeah, here in the California sand
Who holds me like he'll never let go
It's been way too long

Since somebody's body was tangled with mine
Yeah, tangled up with mine

Everybody wants top market
But I'm a little bit unraveled
Everybody wants the new model
But I'm a little bit more traveled
If you got the strength I do
Then sign me up
If I'm not too much for you
Then sign me up, sign me up
I'm a little bit unraveled, but I'm ready
Uh-huh, uh-huh
And I'm ready
Uh-huh, uh-huh

Yeah, I could use a Texas man
Who's not afraid to take his time
He's gotta have patient hands
'Cause the way to my heart is through my mind
Been way too long since somebody's body kept me up all night
Yeah, that good kinda keepin' me up all night

Everybody wants top market
But I'm a little bit unraveled
Everybody wants the new model
But I'm a little bit more traveled
If you got the strength I do
Then sign me up
If I'm not too much for you
Then sign me up, sign me up
I'm a little bit unraveled, but I'm ready
Uh-huh, uh-huh
And I'm ready
Uh-huh, uh-huh

Feelin' my way in the dark
Steal a kiss in your car
Feelin' your way in the dark
Steal another one at the door

Everybody wants top market
But I'm a little bit unraveled
Everybody wants the new model
But I'm a little bit more traveled
If you got the strength I do
Then sign me up
If I'm not too much for you
Then sign me up
Yeah, sign me up
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Feelin' my way in the dark
Steal a kiss in the car
Feelin' your way in the dark
Steal another one at the door
Fallin' asleep in your arms
Under the West Coast stars
Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh
And I'm ready
Uh-huh, uh-huh
And I'm ready
Uh-huh, uh-huh
And I'm ready

Everybody Loves You

I'm so tired, I have to tame my mind
Before I get too frustrated
Can't go back in time
To change in someone's eyes
No, I was not something to play with
Try not to talk about it
I'm too mad, I'm too late, I'm too gentle
It's too hard to explain, I'm not helpful
No

It's my body and I'm trying to
Hate you 'cause I want to
It's my body and I'm trying to
While everybody loves you
It's my body and I'm trying to
Forgive you, I don't want to
It's my body and it hates you
Why does everybody love you?

Sometimes I close my eyes amidst the dancing lights
When it feels too wild for breathing
I can't sleep at night unless I start to lie
And believe it like a story
No, no
Try not to think about it
So insane, I'm so used to my nightmares
It's okay 'til it's not and I'm back there
No, no

It's my body and I'm trying to
Hate you 'cause I want to
It's my body and I'm trying to
While everybody loves you
It's my body and I'm trying to
Forgive you, I don't want to
It's my body and it hates you
Why does everybody love you?

Why does everybody love you?
They don't know enough about you
Why does everybody love you?
They don't know the things that I do
Why does everybody love you?
They don't know enough about you
Do they know that I regret you?
Do they know I shouldn't have to?

For Her

I'm a lover 'cause I can't help myself
A natural mother since the day that I fell
Not a martyr
I'm just someone who cares

So dig a little bit deeper
And be a little bit kinder
And a lot less guarded
'Cause it takes, it takes
It takes a lotta hard work
To get a whole lot stronger
'Cause it's real tough, girl

Why can't we be together?
Why can't we love for her?

Wish I could go back and tell my younger self
"You're a fighter, you just don't know it yet"

So dig a little bit deeper
And be whole lot louder
And a lot less guarded
'Cause it takes, it takes
It takes a lotta hard work
To get a whole lot stronger
'Cause it's real tough, girl

Why can't we be together?
Why can't we love for her?

Stand up, show love
For her, for her
Stand up, show up
For her, for her
Stand up, show love
For her, for her
Stand up, show up
For her, for her

Why can't we be together?
Why can't we love for her?

So dig a little bit deeper
And be a whole lot kinder
And a lot less guarded
'Cause it takes, it takes
It takes a lotta hard work
To get a whole lot stronger
'Cause it's real tough, girl

Stand up, show love
Stand up, show up
Stand up, show love
For her, for her
Stand up, show love
For her, for her
Stand up, show love
For her, for her

Oh, stand up
Oh, stand up for her
Mm-hm, mm-hm
La-da-da-da-da-da
La-da-da-da-da-da
La-da-da-da-da-da
Mm
La-da-da-da-da-da
La-da-da-da-da-da
La-da-da-da-da-da

March March

March, march to my own drum
March, march to my own drum
Hey, hey, I'm an army of one
Oh, I'm an army of one
March, march to my own drum
March, march to my own drum
Hey, hey, I'm an army of one
Oh, I'm an army of one

Brenda's packing heat 'cause she don't like Mondays
Underpaid teacher policing the hallways
Print yourself a weapon and take it to the gun range
(Ah, cut the shit)
(You ain't goin' to the gun range)

Standing with Emma and our sons and daughters
Watchin' our youth have to solve our problems
I'll follow them so who's comin' with me
(Half of you love me)
(Half already hate me)

March, march to my own drum
March, march to my own drum
Hey, hey, I'm an army of one
Oh, I'm an army of one
March, march to my own drum
March, march to my own drum
Hey, hey, I'm an army of one
Oh, I'm an army of one

Tell the ol' boys in the white bread lobby
What they can and can't do with their bodies
Temperatures are rising, cities are sinkin'
(Ah, cut the shit)
(You know your city is sinkin')
Lies are truth and truth is fiction
Everybody's talkin'
Who's gonna listen?
What the hell happened in Helsinki?

March, march to my own drum
March, march to my own drum
Hey, hey, I'm an army of one
Oh, I'm an army of one
March, march to my own drum
March, march to my own drum
Hey, hey, I'm an army of one
Oh, I'm an army of one

My Best Friend's Weddings

Met you at my best friend's wedding
There was somethin' about you
You set off fireworks that evening
With a flicker of untruth
Jump twenty years, jump twenty years, twenty years, yeah
Lookin' back in retrospect
I was never safe, I was never safe, still not safe, yeah
You'd torch me any chance you'd get

I see a wildfire comin'
Burnin' the world that I've known
Watch me, watch me outrun it
Take what I need and go

Strangest thing not havin' you here with me
Then I realized
That I prefer my own company
To yours anytime
In twenty years, in twenty years, twenty years, yeah
I'll still be younger than you
I'm better off, I'm better off, better off, yeah
Without your gloom and your doom

'Cause I can see a wildfire coming
Burnin' the world that I know
Watch me, watch me outrun it
Take what I need and go

Go it alone
Go it alone
Go it alone (go it alone)
Go it alone (we go it alone)
Go it alone, go it alone
Go it alone, we go it alone
Go it alone, go it alone
Go it alone, we go it alone

I'm back here at my best friend's wedding
Yeah, she married again
I've never seen her look more happy
Guess from ashes we can really grow

And my wildfire's comin'
Burnin' the path that I've known
Watch me, yeah, watch me run with it
Take it wherever it goes

And I'll go it alone
Go it alone
Go it alone
Go it alone (go it alone)
Oh
Oh
Go it alone
Go it alone
Go it alone

Tights On My Boat

Okay

I hope you die peacefully in your sleep
Just kidding, I hope it hurts like you hurt me
I hope that when you think of me, you can't breathe
I hope you never find a sock to match the other one
Hey, will your dad pay your taxes now that I'm done?
I can promise you're not foolin' anyone

I should have known you were trouble
Just save myself from all the trouble
You came to visit on tour and you made me cry
Wouldn't speak to me for weeks and now I know why
Yeah

And you can tell the girl who left her tights on my boat
That she can have you now
Yeah, you can call her right now

Julianna Calm Down

Julianna Calm Down
You know he's about to leave but don't panic
Don't give him the satisfaction that you can't handle it
Breathe
It'll be okay

And Harper hold on
To the piece you know he's gonna try to take when he's gone
And you know exactly where he'll try to take it from
Breathe
It'll be okay

Just put on, put on, put on your best shoes
And strut the f*ck around like you've got nothing to lose
Show off, show off, show off your best moves
And do it with a smile so he doesn't know it's
Put on, put on, put on
Put on, put on

Don't think about his lips
How every time he'd kiss you, you'd tremble
Try to only think about the bad things you remember
Breathe
It'll be okay

I guess this is the time to remind you
Sometimes what's going through your head
Is just a temporary situation
And light will soon be shed oh

Just put on, put on, put on your best shoes
And strut the f*ck around like you've got nothing to lose
Show off, show off, show off your best moves
And do it with a smile so that no one knows it's
Put on, put on, put on
Put on, put on, put on
Put on, put on, put on
Put on, put on

And Katie calm down
You know there'll come a time you think you can't handle it
But dig deep and know that you can handle it
Breathe
It'll be okay

And Eva hold on
To everything you know to be true
Don't let the wolves get the best of you
Breathe
You're gonna make it through

So just put on, put on, put on your best shoes
And strut the f*ck around like you've got nothing to lose
Show off, show off, show off your best moves
And do it with a smile so that no one knows it's
Put on, put on, put on
Put on, put on, put on, yeah
Put on, put on, put on, oh
Put on, put on

I guess this is the time to remind you
Sometimes what's going through your head
Is just a temporary situation
And light will soon be shed
Just put on, put on, put on
Put on, put on, put on, yeah
Put on, put on, put on, yeah
Put on, put on

And Violet calm down
And Juno calm down
And Yaya calm down
And Berta calm down
Hesper calm down
And Amelia calm down

Young Man

I had no words for you that Saturday
As we both watched our entire worlds change
Your hero fell just as you came of age
And I had no words, but now I know what to say

You're of me, not mine
Walk your own crooked line
I promise you'll be fine
Take the best parts of him
As your own life begins
Leave the bad news behind you

Young man, take a good look at my life and
Try to understand I've done my best
The best I know how to
And my blues aren't your blues
It's up to you

After the storm
There's nothing you can't navigate
Point to the truth
You'll see it's the only way

You're of me, not mine
Perfect in my eyes
You're gonna be alright
Take the best parts of him
As your own life begins
Leave the bad news behind

Young man, take a good look at my life and
Try to understand I've done my best
The best I know how to
And my blues aren't your blues
It's up to you
It's up to you

Young man, take a good look at my life and
Try to understand I've done my best
The best I know how to
And my blues aren't your blues
You'll walk in your own shoes
It's up to you

Hope It's Something Good

There I go trying to keep myself distracted
So I make the bed, call a friend, do the dishes
Should I have known? Should I have seen a sign?
When did you know? Why'd you pretend to try?

If you're gone
I hope it's really worth it
Twenty years of hanging on
Now it all adds up to nothin'
Gave up on the moon and back
Thought you'd found a better half
Oh, I hope it's something good

Highs and lows, we fought our wars with silence
I'd have called you out, but baby, I knew you'd deny it
After so long I learned to hold my tongue
And now that you're done I get to write this song

And if you're gone
I hope it's really worth it
Twenty years of hanging on
Now it all adds up to nothin'
Gave up on the moon and back
Thought you'd found a better half
Oh, I hope it's something good

If you're gone
I hope it's really worth it
Twenty years of hanging on
Now it all adds up to nothin'
When you gave up on the moon and back
Thought you'd found your better half
I hope she's something good

Set Me Free

I've done what I know
To help me move on
I've been sick from hurt
I've cried alone

Why, oh, why do you keep me tethered?
You've taken enough from me
Untangle me from your lifeline
Why not just set me free

Don't you feel you're wastin' time
You have the power to make it right

Decency
Would be for you to sign and release me
If you ever loved me
Then will you do this one last thing?
Set me free
Set me free
Oh, set me free

To have and to hold
Oh, the weight of this hate was exhausting
You risked my body, broke my spirit
And still I've let you go

Just because you've been a bad guy
I've seen it with my own eyes
There's a good guy in there

Decency
Would be for you to sign and release me
If you ever loved me
Then will you do this one last thing?
Set me free
Set me free
Oh, set me free
Set me free
Let me be
Oh, set me free
