Birds Won't Sing

Words & Music by Wren Wilder

You had the whole sun

In your eyes so you squinted hard. 

I haven't told you... 

I haven't told you much, 

I don't like the sun at all. 

 

I never expected more,

I never expected more from anyone

And it never came. 

 

I never loved you more, 

I never loved you more but now

I'm not the same. 

 

Come down sweetheart, 

My heart just wasn't there. 

You have no sense in fighting

Cause you left me here. 

And my love wasn't that bright, 

But you squinted hard. 

 

And don't blame yourself, cause night time always comes. 

 

The birds won't sing

To us anymore. 

No, the birds won't even sing if we

Open our windows. 

 

Their voices are lost. 

Lost and we're cursed, 

No the birds won't sing to us...

Even if we sing to them first. 

 

I never knew you,

I never knew you 

Would be like this some day.

 

I never heard you, 

I never heard of you

Running away. 

 

Come down sweetheart, 

My heart just wasn't there. 

You have no sense in fighting

Cause you left me here. 

And my love wasn't that bright, 

But you squinted hard. 

 

And don't blame yourself.

Don't blame yourself. 

Don't blame yourself. 

 

I've never been jealous

Of the clouds, 

They see you day and night. 

 

And I've been waiting, 

I've been waiting around; 

All my life. 

 

For you to love me. 

Why don't you love me

Like you loved yourself? 

Come on and love me. 

 

I never expected more. . . 

From you

To Forgive You

Words & Music by Wren Wilder

You've got some plan

To make me stay

Some riddle i 

Can't solve today

But I'm curious 

I must know

Who are you, Untold?

 

You've got some plan

To make me work

For my keep

Your love & more

Youre approval

I want it more

I want to know 

Just what it takes.

 

I don't want to try

to make it right

not if that means saying goodbye

to my happiness.

 

You can hold on to your sword; 

Over me as long as you want

But I won't stand anymore

No I must duck & Hide & Run

To Forgive You

 

I met you on some other stage

Where you played & laughed

& laughed & played

I was 16; you had 4 years on me 

 

You' saw me: naive & young.

I worshipped you; the ground you walked

It was my moment. I was spent.

 

I don't want to try

To make it right

I've given you all i can afford

Yes I've run out of tokens

But still you want more 

For this endless machine

Oh those tricks you played on me.

It's like winning the lottery

Just to Give Love, Get Love, Give Love 

 

The kind of Love I need

Shouldn't Make me Feel Guilty

Don't Belong Here

Words & Music by Wren Wilder

Didn't we make it? 

Where we wanted to end up 

Didn't we reach as

high as our arms would go

Didn't we grow? 

I don't know. I don't know  

 

In the height of my sorrow

In the height of my fear

Ooh I know I don't belong here 

 

In the height of tomorrow

In the height of my years

Ooh I know I don't belong here 

I know I don't belong here

 

Can't we just wait awhile? 

before we touch the ground

I need to reset; I need to reset myself

I need to jump a little higher

I need to start a bigger fire, start a bigger fire 

 

In the height of tomorrow

In the height of my years

Ooh I know I don't belong here

I know I don't belong here

 

And everything they say just makes me more afraid 

That I won't overcome, no I won't beat the odds

Are you listening? Are you listening? Are you listening?

Of Course Not. Of Course Not. Of Course Not!

 

In the height of tomorrow

In the height of my years

Ooh I know I don't belong here

I know I don't belong here

Worth The Cold

Words & Music by Wren Wilder

Sun will catch the heat, but I will never break

Until now, until the rain has washed away

Clouds will catch the pavement, but shadows fall

Rain will fall. Rain will fall

 

This is my only thought of the day

I'm so lucky

This is my only thought of the day

I'd rather be shivering

 

Than inside, nice and warm, drinking my coffee alone

This is my only thought of the day

The romance of seeing you

Is worth the cold

 

The current pulled me down

I didn't know until You grabbed my arm, lifted me out 

The air was so still

You will blind the days that could go wrong

This house is nearly space when you are gone

 

Than inside, nice and warm, drinking my coffee alone

This is my only thought of the day

The romance of seeing you

Is worth the cold

Over It

Words & Music by Wren Wilder

The next time I count to ten, you better be gone

Or at least do me the decency of hiding from my storm

Don't sit there looking at me for attention

I don't have anything left to give

I 'm a dry wasteland

 

I don't want to try any-anymore I don't want to try

I think it's over. I think that I gave it my best so why don't you ?

I don't want to try. I don't want to try

I think I'm over it. I think I'm over it. I think I'm over it

 

You gave me your wedding ring

The one that's been passed down for centuries 

At least from you to me

 

And all the lies; all the deceit, all of the tries you tried in me

I don't think they were worth it half the time

 

I don't want to try. I don't want to try

I think I'm over it. I think I'm over it.I think I'm over it

And I think that I'm done worshipping you as my sun

And I don't like, no I don't like, no I don't like, no I don't like

 

So don't kiss me anymore

I don't need you to feel whole

Don't even try to hug me when I cry

No I don't like, no I don't like, no I don't like

No I don't like

 

I don't want to try. I don't want to try

I think I'm over it. I think I'm over it.I think I'm over it

You know I want to live, I wanna live, I want to live i wanna live

Without you

My Voice

Words & Music by Wren Wilder

You were surreal, like the last of my thoughts

Who is the girl with the taste of your tongue? 

Fumble for the words to save your soul

Where is the cadence to shackle your fable? 

 

It must have gone adrift with your socks

You hold my hands too tightly, they feel like they're falling off 

It must have gone adrift with your socks

But why must you try to convince me? 

 

She was so real, like I first thought

Who was I ever to think differen'ty? 

Fumble for the words to make me feel at home

But why is she in my kitchen right next to me? 

 

Where Was My Voice in the Muck?? 

 

It must have gone adrift with your socks

But as I look down beside me

It seems like they've ended up on the girl with the taste of your tongue.

on the girl with the taste of your tongue 

 

She can keep them. I'm done

The Leaving Game

Words & Music by Wren Wilder

I'll take my time to finish this fine wine . . . then I'll leave

I can take the hint. I know when you're not Feeling it

 

And I'm hoping, I'm hoping He finds me

And I'm coping, I'm coping Just like the sea

 

I'm free, and I don't want to be

 

My mother always said

One day like me, you'll feel it

But love's a two-way street

and I'm falling for each one I meet

 

And I'm hoping, I'm hoping He finds me

And I'm flowing, I'm flowing Just like the breeze

 

State your name, State your case

Why do you want to go out?

I'm not sure, I'm running wild

With all the doubt, what's it for?

 

Questions or status quos

Won't fill my heart with what it knows

 

I'm searching for so much more

A spark that makes a sound
