I am currently a college student learning how to sing opera, but in my free time, I'm a crappy recording artist who likes to play ukulele and sing pop songs in her bedroom.

Track Name: Anywhere But Home
Not every song can be as beautiful as you
But I'll search until I find the perfect tune
If it'll please you, if it'll keep you warm through any storm
And when the rain falls down I hope to keep you dry
Even if you won't let me, I'll still try
I'll follow your eyes to wherever you go
When you sit paralyzed, watching as the cars

Go
Away from the town that you call
Home
Just to let you know I'd
Follow, follow you
Wherever you want to go
Anywhere but home

Not every day can be as orange as today
But I'll wake up with a smile on my face
Just to show you
That you shouldn't leave me too

Go
Away from the town that you call
Home
Just to let you know I'd
Follow, follow you
Wherever you want to go
Anywhere but home

I'm wrapped in a summer breeze
Like ocean waves or leaves on trees
I just want you to know I'm not going home
Just to see if you follow

So

Go
Away from the town that you call
Home
Just to let you know I'd
Follow, follow you
Wherever you want to go

So, go
Away from the town that you call
Home
Just to let you know I'd
Follow, follow you
Wherever you want to go
Anywhere but home
Home
Home
Track Name: Matches
I watched you choke on all the poison words she fed you with the silver spoon you grew up with since the day you came to be
You chose the quick route for your hastily planed escape
Now you're trapped between a lifetime of her or none

Can you still feel their sharp eyes clawing at your neck?
Is your refundable alibis to escape this so called wreck
You've created this mess

So I'm burning all your bridges
Burning all your bridges, I'm
Burning all your bridges
Down down down
(Down down down down)

Now you walk hand-in-hand like there's something you're holding on to
Hoping you won't let go too early
You don't watch the movie, you're too busy tying your tongues into pretty bows
While choking on each other's air

Do you believe her bloody smiles when they tell you she loves you?
I don't want to ruin the surprise but I can't tell you any of it's true
I can't help you

So I'm burning all your bridges
Burning all your bridges, I'm
Burning all your bridges
Down down down

I'm just angry you chose her not me
Angry you can't see her horns in disguise
I'm just angry you chose her not me
Angry you can't see her horns in disguise


So I'm burning all your bridges
Burning all your bridges, I'm
Burning all your bridges
Down down down

I'm burning all your bridges
Burning all your bridges, I'm
Burning all your bridges
Down down down

I'm burning all your bridges
Burning all your bridges, I'm
Burning all your bridges
Down down down
Track Name: Amusement Parks
Have you ever thought about how easily you can fall out of amusement rides?
It's funny how you spend all your money to be so close to death for a moment of excitement
Oh roller coaster, ferris wheel, tilt-a-whirl, make me squeal
You scare me so
I will not ride you, ride you
Get trapped inside you
Get me off before I explode

People wait in line, wasting all their time for a cheap thrill
They shoot their arms up, my heart erupts, watching
It's like a horror film, thirsty to kill
So run away in terror, don't ride the monster
If you want to survive
The moral of this song is don't go along if
Your friends pull you on to a ride
Track Name: Invincible (live)
I'd like to dedicate this poem
To you, but it won't feel good enough
The words should be impeccably swollen
With love, with love, with love

I'd like to give you a night sky
So you could watch the stars to your delight
But I'm not filled with the power
To give you such starlight
Will you settle for this cloudy night?

Maybe I'd get on your skateboard
And ride around in circles gracefully
But my balance is nothing
As you can plainly see
So you stand by to catch me

Cause you make me invincible
And you make breathing so impossible
You got me, you got me, I struck gold
Cause you make me invincible

If I painted, I'd paint you mural
Shining so brightly and handsomely
But I have no artistic talent
These words are all that will come to me

So take them for they're what they can give
Tattered and torn but still beautiful
For no matter how old and forgotten they'll always
Stay true to you
As I will try to do

Cause you make me invincible
And you make breathing so impossible
You got me, you got me, I struck gold
Cause you make me invincible
