Katie Herzig Viva La Vida

I used to rule the world

Seas would rise when I gave the word

Now in the morning I sleep alone

Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice

Feel the fear in my enemy’s eyes

Listened as the crowd would sing

He said “The old king is dead! Long live the king!”

One minute I held the key

Next the walls were closed on me

And I discovered that my castles stand

Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing

Roman cavalry choirs are singing

Be my mirror, my sword and shield

My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can’t explain

Once you’d gone there was never

Never an honest word

And that was when I ruled the world

It was a wicked and wild wind

Blew down the doors to let me in

Shattered windows and the sound of drums

People couldn’t believe what I’d become

Revolutionaries wait

For my head on a silver plate

Just a puppet on a lonely string

Oh who would ever want to be king?

Oh oh oh, oh

Oh oh oh, oh

Oh oh oh, oh

Oh oh oh, oh

Never an honest word

That was when I ruled the world

Never an honest word

That was when I ruled the world

Never an honest word

That was when I ruled the world

Katie Herzig Hungry Still

One two three

Is this where the rainbow ends?

In this pile of emptyness

I’ve been holding out for the wind once again.

You rule over my life.

This handsome king without a promise of anything.

I just assumed that you would love me too.

I’ve been holding out for you

I’ve been setting this table for two

And I’m hungry still

I’m hungry still

Hoo hoo hoo

Have your cake and eat it too

While the others starve as they look at you.

They cant see the feast in front of them, they just see you.

Wasted time for a washed out world

Some place I could have been 10 years ago

It was a close close call wasn’t so close at all.

I’ve been holding out for you

I’ve been setting this table for two

And I am hungry still

Oh I am hungry still

Ahah

But it wasn’t you no, it was me

You just happened to be standing in front of me

It wasn’t you no, it was me

You just happened to be (happened to be)

you were standing in front of me

In front of me

So close your eyes and go to sleep

While I tell you this little story

Of a girl who couldn’t get the world to love her

Until she found in her own hand

A love she never even knew she had

It cost a fortune to find a love so free

She’s been holding out for you

She’s been setting her table for two

Just like I’m holding out for you

And I’m hungry still

And I’m hungry still

Hungry still

Ah hoo hoo hoo

Katie Herzig Fool’s Gold

From the time you said hello and what’s your name

You were work of art playing me like a little game

Now you can break my heart and I will love you just the same

I can see through your eyes

Your fingers crossed by your side

But I need your little shiny lies

You promised the world and opened up your door

And the words you fed left me wanting more

Now I’m left here locked out looking for a key to score

I can see through your eyes

Your fingers crossed by your side

But I need your little shiny lies

Fools gold shining…

You can break my heart and I will want you just the same

I can see through your eyes

Your fingers crossed by your side

But I need your little shiny lies

You can break my heart and I will love you just the same

I can see through your eyes

Your fingers crossed by your side

But I need your little shiny lies

Katie Herzig Say It Out Loud

Say it out loud

We’re moving the world around

Careful you don’t look down

You might be the last one out

We’re here to stay

We won’t give our lives away

We know there’s a better way

The people will have their say

And they’ll say it out loud

You think it’s fun

Holding a loaded gun

Pointing it at the sun

Not fooling anyone

I’ll say it now

We’re starting a revolution

Against our own confusion

There will be no illusion

When we say it out loud

Say it out loud…

Katie Herzig Learn To Hide

We were young

We were everyone’s young

We were everyone seeking

Seeking out the ways of love

We were free

How we dared to be free

Cause we didn’t know better

Better than we’ll ever be

Oh but we learned to hide

Should have known better but we learned to hide

We would be calling out to the sea

Daring waves to believe in

Under the watch of the breeze

Oh but we learned to hide

Should have known better but we learned to hide

Oh but we learned to hide

Should have known better but we learned to hide

Katie Herzig Songbird

Here I am again

Singing the same old tune

Holding everything as close as I can to you

If love is anywhere

Mine still belongs with you

But I’m holding it in my hand

She lays her head

Upon your shoulder

But all I see is the way that you hold her

You live in your house

With a beautiful view

And I live in an your apple tree

I am a songbird

Singing out your window

Telling stories in the shade

And I can’t fly away

I can’t fly away

Imagine me

Flying around the world

Or Italy on a terraced hill

No matter where life’s taking me

I may still be up in your apple tree

I am a songbird

Singing out your window

Telling stories in the shade

And I can’t fly away

I can’t fly away

No I can’t fly away

I can’t fly away

I’ll follow wherever you go

‘Cause I can’t fly away

Katie Herzig Jack And Jill

She wore that dress like it was a Saturday

Pretty as a summer rose picked in the morning

And he held her had like she was a mystery

One he couldn’t quite believe

Was walking with him

They were

High up on a hill

With something to say

And daylight to kill

Time slips away

The way that it will

Round and around dancing round the question posed

Flip a coin and watch it go down into the wishing well

Two-step sunset there goes another day

Another chance to give away secrets they keep to themselves

They were

High up on a hill

With something to say

And daylight to kill

Time slips away

The way that it will

Darkness falls without a sound

They come tumbling down

Tumbling after, tumbling after

She wore that dress like it was a Saturday

Pretty as a summer rose picked in the morning

And he held her had like she was a mystery

One he couldn’t quite believe

Was walking with him

They were

High up on a hill

With something to say

And daylight to kill

Time slips away

The way that it will

Katie Herzig Drug

Oh you left me with a little of your love, your love

Oh I’m gonna need some more, I need some more love, some more love

Oh you left me in the middle of your love, your love

Oh and now I need some more, you’re like a drug, a drug

Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to meet you

Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to meet you

Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to

Oh I’m taking it to everywhere I go, I go

Oh and now you need to know, you need to know, to know

Oh you kill me when you say you have to go, to go

Oh addicted to you baby even though my lord, oh my lord

Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to meet you

Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to meet you

Heaven must have sent you because I never meant to

Katie Herzig I Hurt Too

When you’re weary

And haunted

When your life is not what you wanted

When you’re trying so hard to find it

When the lies speak the loudest

When your friends are starting to leave

When you’re broken by people like me

I hurt too, I hurt too

When an ocean sits right between us

There is no sign that we’ll ever cross

You should know now that I feel the loss

I hurt too, I hurt too

Even though you are drowning in valley’s of echoes

I believe there is peace in those hills up ahead

You will climb ‘til you find places you’ll never let go

And I will also be here praying just like I said

I hurt too, I hurt too

Katie Herzig I Want To Make You Proud

We built a city on

The luck of Babylon

But it became the wall that split the sand

And if we tear it down

If we start again

Will we end up where we all began

Even the dawn, even the dawn will doubt

Even in hard times, I want to make you proud

No matter what we find

In the human kind

We’re the making of our own divine

I don’t know where to stand

With an open hand

God forbid we got no other plan

Even the dawn, even the dawn will doubt

Even in hard times, I want to make you proud

All I wanna say, all I wanna say say

All I wanna say, all I wanna say say

All I wanna say, all I wanna say say

All I wanna say, all I wanna say say say say

Even the dawn, even the dawn will doubt

Even in hard times, I want to make you proud

Even the dawn, even the dawn will doubt

Even in hard times, I want to make you proud
