Matter of Time – Vanessa Carlton

Give her all your darkness
Give her all your light
Love is like a carriage
It’s no spirit in the night

Like a wishing well
Where your pennies fell

He said it’s only a matter of time
Before your heart is mine
Have you been searching?
You’ve been looking the world over

When is it time to let go?
And is it then that you know?
All the peace that we’ve been bringing out of each other
Out of each other

Flowing like a circuit
Through a curse of neon signs
Writing her a letter
What’s the curve of your desire
When the cycle starts its run
And we become what we become

He said it’s only a matter of time
Before your heart is mine
Have you been searching?
You’ve been looking the world over

When is it time to let go?
And is it then that you know?
All the peace that we’ve been bringing out of each other
Out of each other

When is it time to let go?
And is it then that you know?
All the peace that we’ve been bringing out of each other
Out of each other

Give her all your darkness
Give her all your light
Love is like a carriage
It’s no spirit in the night

Unsung – Vanessa Carlton

if only I could get into that corner of your head
where things finally match and meet the standards that you set
oh how I wish I was the treasure that you were lookin’ for
bet I would feel better if only I could find the door

I am cryin’
you aren’t tryin’
I am melting away

I wait for the words on the tip of your tongue
I’m only as good as the last one
well you decide and I abide as my song goes unsung (yeah, yeah, yeah)

things are goin’ crazy and I’m not sure who to blame
everything is changing and I do not feel the same
I’m slippin’ through the cracks of floors I thought that were strong
I’m tryin’ to find a place where I can feel like I belong

Well, I am cryin’
you aren’t tryin’
I am melting away

[chorus]

If I could be the lesson that you learn, you learn if only
I could be the last one that love burns, it burns… yeah
if only I could get into that corner of your head
where things finally match and meet the standards that you set
oh how I wish I was the treasure that you were lookin’ for
bet I would feel better if only I could find the door

Well, I am cryin’
you aren’t tryin’
and I am melting away

[chorus]

Blue Pool – Vanessa Carlton

Man, it’s so nice to see you again
You’re the great blue pool in L.A
And I close my book, move my bag, make some space
Cause it’s time to give that song a break
So tell me now how these few years have been
When it’s living to honor the best
And I have been well, I’ve saved you a smile
These feelings they come and go fast
Light your cigarette, see the fame in your eyes
Sing me that new song you sing
The time for you and I was never quite right
It matters and means everything

Cause the garden walls grew quick
Before you know, you’re outside of it
And the ivy’s coming in
It’s so beautiful if you can find it

And time, she’s always kept you on her good side
Some people they still fight their fate
I understood clear what you said with your eyes
We all speak in different ways

Cause the garden walls grew quick
Before you know, you’re outside of it
And the ivy’s coming in
It’s so beautiful if you can find it
The garden walls grow quick
Before you know, you’re outside of it
And the ivy’s coming in
It’s so beautiful if you can find it

Prince – Vanessa Carlton

willing and able to run
I am
willing and able I’m able to come

and if I want for you now
would you come
would you run
would you bring it back around
oh, baby how

if it all went away
nothin’ left to say
would you fight it or would you lay down
at the hand of your God could you see the light
oh my prince can’t you see what’s been found

willing and able to run
willing and able to come
I am willing, I’m willing

willing and able to run
I am
willing and able I’m able to come
