Erin McCarley Blackout

It could be any day now

The venom is crawling down

It’s humming

Flickering through my veins

It’s taking advantage

Doing it’s damage

I follow the spiral

Down to the bottom

Burning in my palms

Haunted in these hours

Voices sway, voices sway

Voices sway my body

Burning in my palms

Voices in these hours

These voices, these voice

They sway

Blackout

Dark clouds

I’m waiting

Blackout

Dark clouds

I’m waiting

Blackout

Dark clouds

I’m waiting

Blackout

Dark clouds

I’m waiting

Voices sway, voices sway

Voices sway, voices sway

Voices sway my body

I’m waiting

I’m waiting

(Voices sway…)

Erin McCarley Pop Gun

I’m not the kind of lady

That on the ground

Throw the drama

Going up and down

I’m straight shooting

You can find it out

If you’re gonna play the game

Standing up on your head

Fumbling words

Pulling my hair

Kicking up dirt

You’re talking trash

And it’s starting to work

Boy toy

I’m taking aim

I see the spark dancing in your eyes

Adrenaline sneaking up behind

No question, just tonight, out of your life

I got the way I want you

Load up, load up

Taking everything you got

Bu-bu-bang, bu-bu-bang

Straight for the heart

Give it up, give it up

Yeah, you know want up

Bu-bu-bang, bu-bu-bang

Strung off my pop gun

I’m trigger happy

I tracked you down

Lock the door

Make a sound

In the dark

Feel your way around

Don’t go

I dare you know

I see the spark racing in your eyes

No conversation, just an open mind

No question, this is the best night of your life

I got the way I want you

Load up, load up

Taking everything you got

Bu-bu-bang, bu-bu-bang

Straight for the heart

Give it up, give it up

Yeah, you know want up

Bu-bu-bang, bu-bu-bang

Strung off my pop gun

Load up, load up

Taking everything you got

Bu-bu-bang, bu-bu-bang

Straight for the heart

Give it up, give it up

Yeah, you know want up

Bu-bu-bang, bu-bu-bang

Strung off my pop gun

Better watch out

I’m loaded with a boy and gun

Bang bang

Better watch out

I’m loaded with a boy and gun

Bang bang

Better watch out

I’m loaded with a boy and gun

Bang bang

Better watch out a boy and gun

Load up, load up

Taking everything you got

Bu-bu-bang, bu-bu-bang

Straight for the heart

Give it up, give it up

Yeah, you know want up

Bu-bu-bang, bu-bu-bang

Strung off my pop gun

Load up, load up

Taking everything you got

Bu-bu-bang, bu-bu-bang

Straight for the heart

Give it up, give it up

Yeah, you know want up

Bu-bu-bang, bu-bu-bang

Strung off my pop gun

Erin McCarley Amber Waves

The stars align

The amber waves aren’t far behind

You make me twist in harmony

You rock me in your velvet sea

It’s our illusion

Off the map

It’s so emotive

Off the map

Now I’m alive and undefeated

Sleep is overrated

I can see the air so clearly

And it’s easy

Lay upon the edge to see this storm collide

I can feel the rise comin’

I can feel the ride

Wave your hands out to get caught up in the tide

I can feel the rise comin’

I can feel the ride

I found the secret of the one shop lottery

It’s all we need

Conversation

You shape with your hands

It’s obvious

You want in

That it’s obvious

You want it bad

The cup is over flowing

With the gold

It’s ours to have yet to unfold

Rows and rows so dizzy

Elevation to be

Lay upon the edge to see this storm collide

I can feel the rise comin’

I can feel the ride

Wave your hands out to get caught up in the tide

I can feel the rise comin’

I can feel the ride

Feel the ride

Lay upon the edge to see this storm collide

I can feel the rise comin’

I can feel the ride

Wave your hands out to get caught up in the tide

I can feel the rise comin’

I can feel the ride

I can feel the ride

Feel the ride

I can feel the ride

Erin McCarley Vertigo

The cat is in a corner

Of pur and pan

Mom, I feel a calm condensation

Cast from his eye

He’s on to me

Yeah, he’s on to me

Uh huh, uh huh

The static of the city

A shot into the vein

I know the night I was in the alley

The need to know came

I got that rush in my head

I got a boy in the bed

Uh huh, uh huh

Oh, oh vertigo

It got me in

And I don’t want to let it go

Yeah

La la la la la la la (hey)

La la la la la la la

La la la la la la la

Ah ah ah ah ah

There’s ruby castles in the air

They’re ticking like a bomb

You chase a clinical condition

I wanna get it off

Get my legs in the sea

I wanna swim in the sea

Uh huh, uh huh

There’s one kind of lover

That don’t do a thing

Don’t even give him attention

It will never change

They come out of the box

In the new machine

And the way you fly

In a new dream

The wisdom in your eyes is alright

Oh, oh vertigo

It got me in

And I don’t want to let it go

Yeah

I’m in vertigo

Turnin’

And I don’t want to let it go

The storm is above the cloud

The rainbow seems to know

It’s over now

I hang beneath the bells

And swing within the swears

Oh oh, oh oh

Oh, oh vertigo

It got me

And I don’t want to let it go

Woah

I’m in vertigo

Yeah

And I’m turnin’ out of control

Erin McCarley Blue Suitcase

Oh, wise one, if you knew the answer

Why’d you ask the question?

Oh, wise one if you’re such a someone

Why do you give nothing to anyone?

You’ve wiggled your way into me time and again

You love to speak your mind

But now it’s fair to say I’m not open today

To have my heart twisted up

Your blue suitcase is empty

Hey, what’s your wait?

Your blue suitcase is empty

Hey, what’s your wait?

Oh, wise man, how do you get high man?

You must be self-absorbing

Oh, wise man save me from your high man

I came for another of your stuck up drug

My confidence says I am worth it today

So try and change its mind

Kiss your sweet girl away, you’ve found your fate

Now you will know what lonely pays

Your blue suitcase is empty

Hey, what’s your wait?

Your blue suitcase is empty

Hey, what’s your wait?

Na, na, na, na, na, na

Na, na, na, na, na, na

Na, na, na, na, na, na

Na, na, na, na, na, na

Tell me how does it feel

To be so high above the clouds?

So tell me how does it feel

To be so high above the clouds?

And tell me how will it feel

When no one cares that you’re not around?

Your blue suitcase is empty

Hey, what’s your wait?

Oh, your blue suitcase is empty

Hey, what’s your wait?

Your blue suitcase is empty

What’s your wait?

Oh, your blue suitcase is empty

What’s your wait?

Tell me how does it feel

Tell me how does it feel

Erin McCarley Sleep Walking

Turn the corner, too familiar

Turn around into your past

Ohh

You hide and seek the same addiction,

Hope you find the better one of the last

Ohh

You’re sleepwalking through your big bed of lies

Wish on up your new star every night – Oh yeah

I see you’re at it again, sittin’ on your hands

Waitin’ around for the wind to change direction – Oh yeah

There you go again

Stuck in your head, havin’ a ball in you’re fully optimistic way

So off with your masquerade

Mmmm

All the people look so happy, safe beneath their plastic skin – Ohh

Get a rise from another’s tragedy, but tip-toe so nobody can get in – Ohh

You’re sweet-talking through you’re big bed of lies

Wish on up your new star every night – oh yeah

I see you’re at it again, sittin’ on your hands

Waitin’ around for the wind to change direction – Ohh

There you go again

Stuck in your head, havin’ a ball in you’re fully optimistic way

Oh, doubt in you, you suffocate in your feather sleep

You twist inside your hollow eyes when the mirror speaks

I see you’re at it again, sittin’ on your hands

Waitin’ around for the wind to change direction – Oh yeah yeah yeah

There you go again

Stuck in your head, havin’ ball in you’re fully optimistic way – yeah

I see you’re at it again, sittin’ on your hands

Waitin’ around for the wind to change direction – Ohh

There you go again

Stuck in your head, havin’ a ball in you’re fully optimistic way

So off with your masquerade

Erin McCarley Lovesick Mistake

Oh dear, what can I say?

I’m high here, up and spinning away

From a kiss of a thrill to be filled

Can someone hear me?

Love, what do you say?

Your mystery winds me up to be playful

Oh, here goes my curious sinner within

Is someone listening? I hope no one is listening

How do I slow down? I can’t relate to my heart now

I’ve thrown what I known, is it enough for me out?

I’m running on empty

I’ve gotta find someway to fumble right through this new heartache

It’s torn me apart

Oh, lovesick mistake, turn me away

Time says it’s the end of the day

My inside says for your lips to forget what time says

Or do I let go of the feeling when you steal the logic around me?

Oh God save me, I’m trying

How do I slow down? I can’t relate to my heart now

I’ve thrown what I known, is it enough for me out?

I’m running on empty

I’ve gotta find someway to fumble right through this new heartache

It’s torn me apart

Oh, lovesick mistake, turn me away

I think I’ll disappear, leave my head in the air for a chance to feel

So far, far away from here, I know I can’t stay too long

Ooh, I don’t belong here

I’ve gotta find someway to fumble right through this new heartache

It’s torn me apart

Oh, lovesick mistake, turn me away, turn me away

Erin McCarley GOOD

Sitting on my hands

In the bed

In the car

In my heart

Standing on the stage

Howling quiet

Like a wolf in the dark

I’ve been stung

All this chemistry has got me falling

I’ll be alright

I’m definitely high

G-g-g-good

G-g-g-good

I’ve got scissors in my hand

I take a shot

Cut a lock

I can’t stop

But I’m done pretending

I’m not gonna behave

I’ve been stung

All this chemistry has got me falling

I’ll be alright

I’m definitely high

G-g-g-good

G-g-g-good, good, good

Shaken off the edge

What a night

Gonna bite

I’m on fire

I’ve been stung

All this chemistry has got me falling

I’m definitely high

I’m definitely high

I’m definitely

Definitely high

Definitely high

Erin McCarley Hush Hush

You’re going fast but you’re better half

Is underground and going down

They need a little pick up

From the webs and the barns

The pulse is slowin’ down

Don’t lose your love to the stars

The “hold it all in”

This pattern starts to win

A paper doll army

Full of colorful defenses

With sound and no longer tears apart

Where you can see it

For the sake of your lover’s heart

Turn the light to the pieces

Hush, hush

Oh, you can hear it beating

Hush, hush

Oh, listen to the wreckage of the fall

Shadows hold the sound of what a heart is feeling

Hush, hush, oh

The fortune of a day is finding

Meaning in the making

But you give up to the chaos

With this systematic trade off

While the portrait of the other’s

Fading out of the glow

The changing of the dark

Covers all the suffering below

Hush, hush

Oh, you can hear it beating

Hush, hush

Oh, listen to the wreckage of the fall

Shadows hold the sound of what a heart is feeling

Hush, hush, oh

Deep, deep in the dark

Luminary heart

Tears it all apart

To be there

Holding your hand

Holding me into bed

Hush, hush

Oh, you can hear it beating

Hush, hush

Oh, listen to the wreckage of the fall

Shadows hold the sound of what a heart is feeling

Hush, hush, oh

Hush, hush

Oh, you can hear it beating

Hush, hush

Oh, listen to the wreckage of the fall

Shadows hold the sound of what a heart is feeling

Hush, hush, oh

Hush, hush, oh

Hush, hush

Oh, listen to the wreckage of the fall
