Lyrics

'SHE HOLDS THE HEAVENS

Written By: MARYBETH MIECZKOWSKI

HER EYES ARE DARK AS MIDNIGHT
A CROSS ADORNS HER NECK
SHE'S GOT A LOCKET IN HER POCKET
OUTWARD APPEARANCE IS NEGLECT

SHE CLAIMS SHE HOLDS THE HEAVENS IN HER PALMS
AND IN HER HEART
SAYS THE ANGLES LIGHT HER DOORWAY
AND TO LOVE IS JUST A START

WEARS A COST OF GENERATIONS
RED LIPS SPEAK OF PRAYER
HOLDS A WORN BOOK IN HER COLD HAND
NO HAT TO HIDE HER HAIR

HER WORDS ARE FULL OF SCRIPTURE
HER BODY FORMS A CROSS
KEEPS HIS PICTURE IN THE LOCKET
BUT SHE NEVER MORNED THE LOSS

SHE CLAIMS SHE HOLDS THE HEAVENS
IN HER PALMS
AND IN HER HEART
SAYS THE ANGLES LIGHT HER DOORWAY
AND TO LOVE IS JUST A START

CAN SHE HOLD ON TO THE FAITH
THROUGH THE CHILLS OF LIFE
DOES SHE REMEMBER A BRIGHTER LIGHT

YOU CAN FIND HER IN THE STREET
A PEOPLE OF PRAYER
HAIR AS DARK AS MIDNIGHT
EYES BRIGHT WITH CARE
IN A DAY FULL OF NIGHTIME
IN A LIFE THATS UNFAIR

SHE CLAIMS SHE HOLDS THE HEAVENS
IN HER PALMS
AND IN HER HEART
SPREADS THE WISDOM OF THE AGES
SAYS TO LOVE IS JUST A START
SHE CLAIMS SHE'S SEEN THE ANGLES
IN THE DARK SUMMER HEAT
SAYS THEY LIGHT HER DOORWAY
OF HER BOX ON THE STREET

SHE CLAIMS SHE HOLD THE HEAVENS
IN HER PALMS
AND IN HER HEART
SAYS THE ANGLES LIGHT HER DOORWAY
AND TO LOVE IS JUST A START
TO LOVE IS JUST A START

The Rocketship Song

Written By: Marybeth Mieczkowski

My shadow keeps falling in and out of the fascinating file
I'm lonely but I'm not alone but I'd like to be for awhile

There's a rocketship out my window
waiting to take me home
A plane on the tarmat and I'm getting on alone
Been circling whith the wheels up for so long I think I've grown wings
Can't remember how to land but I remember the simpler things , like,
CHORUS
Everybody knows, Everybody knows, Everybody knows your something more than special

Been getting real good sleep up here
You know the seats recline
Been dreaming all thous nice dreams ,ya , I'm feeling fine

Don't want to feel the dirt on my feet been standing still so long
Sinking in way to deep and the feelings oh so wrong

CHORUS
My shadow been falling in and out of the fascinating file but theses
skeletons in my closet have been there quite awhile

I'd like to raise my glass and just leave you with a toast but the television and radio won't tune to neutral so I could coast

There's a cat outside my window
Crying to come in
A man on the sidewalk and he's wollowing in sin

I'd like to give you a leg up and just let you come inside
Join me with my memories and take my rocketship ride

Sweet September

Written By: Marybeth Mieczkowski

Wake me up days from know
When sky’s are dry
When eyes are dry
When wings can fly
Wake me up when August runs dry
Here’s hoping that September's sweet
When morning comes the flowers beat the daylight right out of the dark

It’s the time when feelings rise
New days take on the disguise
That everything is going to be alright
Here’s hoping that the sunrise don’t lie
Wake me up when August runs dry

There’s con in the air
Dust on the trees
You can’t see the sunshine through the leaves
Here’s hoping the skies won’t cry
Wake me up when August runs dry

The waters fall through filters that
can't take away the pain
I’m looking for familiar
But nothing is the same
I watch my wild flowers die
Wake me up when August runs dry

The sky is bluer, the air is clean
But there’s just no room to breathe
I never wanted anything more then to just get up and leave
Can you make me believe
One more lie
Wake me up when August runs dry

Sweet September save me from this socialistic slur
Hold me in your tenderness , stop the spinning blur
It’s the time when innocents ask why
Wake me up when August runs dry
Wake me up when broken wings can fly
Sweet September take me by the hand
Hold me if I cry
Wake me up when August runs dry
Wake me up when broken wings can fly
Wake me up when all the tears run dry
