Hassles Brittany's voice would be wonderful in so many arenas but here, with simple acoustic support, it feels like it belongs. A sincerity emerges and the lyrics shine upon a carpet of musical integrity that is pure joy.

Track Name: Warning
I went down to the coast to rid myself of it
To throw it to the sea, to burn it underneath
And I wrestled with the devil for some semblance of peace
Some hope of release, some sad excuse to be free
But his fingers gripped me tighter as I screamed to nearest land
And his grasp only grew stronger the faster that I swam

And I tried to warn you
I'm no good [x2]
So leave me

It was down by the coast that my will was sold
Cheapened to the penny but it was only one of many
The woman on the corner offered me to repent
As I turned the cold shoulder; time I'd rather not spend
But when he pulled me closer, I could only smell the gin
And when he took me further, I did nothing but submit

And I tried to warn you
I'm no good [x2]
So leave me

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh [x2]

And I tried to warn you
I'm no good [x3]
Track Name: It's Not Me, It's You
You know I wouldn't have made it love
Through those dark and treacherous seas
The ones that made a mess of me
You know I couldn't have saved you love
Though I tried so desperately
It was me who was drowning

And I've been looking for something to fill me up
I've been looking for something that isn't you
I've been looking for something to fill me up
But that something isn't you

You know I've been searching for more than me
Under the boulders and over the hills
To set fire to what I had lost
You know I feel so washed up on the shores of the sheets of your bed
Covered in your love
It just wasn't enough [x3]

And I've been looking for something to fill me up
I've been looking for something that isn't you
I've been looking for something to fill me up
But that something isn't you

I was drowning, you were drowning, we were drowning [x2]
And I tried to save us, and I tried to save you
But there was nothing to save
You were nothing to save
You were nothing
Track Name: Drinking Alone
I'm looking at this empty pint worried I'd rather be alone
If I light myself on fire, would I just watch me burn?
The person to my left has my mother's eyes
But I'm drinking like my father's blood
And I'm so good, I'm so good on my own
I'm so good, I'm so good on my own

Because I don't need anybody to make me happy [x2]
When I've got this bottle [x2]

When I look at the clock near me, it's a quarter past three
And I look at the bartender because he knows just what that means
I'll take another drink to forget your face
Cause I won't be holding you again
Can't you see I'm so good, can't you see I'm so good on my own
Can't you see I'm so good, can't you see I'm so good on my own

Because I don't need anybody to make me happy [x2]
When I've got this bottle [x2]

Don't look at me like you know me
Don't look at me like you feel bad
Can't you see my plastic smile
I'm just fine on my own

Because I don't need anybody to make me happy [x2]
When I've got this bottle [x2]
To hold me [x3]
Track Name: Bluebird
I've got too much on my mind to keep these folks from hearing
Burning the midnight oil, wax melting from the ceiling
How do I get to where I'm going, if I'm stuck right where I'm at?
How do I get to where I'm going, if I can barely handle that?

There's a bluebird down inside of me
And he's dying to get out
There's a bluebird down inside of me
But I push him down

These prison walls are barren and untrue; the bars they grow with time
But it's hard to keep me breathing when my sentence is for life
So lock me in the gallows; let the darkness sleep by me
And those demons in the corner can drain those broken wings

There's a bluebird down inside of me
And he's dying to get out
There's a bluebird down inside of me
But I push him down

He's dying to get out, but I push him down [x2]
And I push him down [x2]
Track Name: Coming Home
Beneath the dark and twisted staircase
I will follow you below
To the trappings of the watershed
The one you called your own
Where I sold my soul to the devil of disdain
Opening my heart to his misery
And when you asked me if I'd been there
What did you think I'd say?
Did I say what you thought I would say?

Darling
I'm coming home [x3]

Stealing my words from the lips of a killer
I told those lies to survive
I told them to survive
So don't you look at me like you know
Who I am or what I have done
As if my mistakes were written on my face
And when you try to hold me back with those serpent arms
You won't feel a thing
You won't feel a thing cause I'll be gone

Darling
I'm coming home [x7]

And when you asked me if I'd been there
What did you think I'd say?
