Lyrics

Elementary

Written By: Carol Rider

Verse 1

As steady as the shifting tides
As sure as the moon's nightly rise
As certain as the day will end
You'll be back in my arms again

You can try to analyze it
'Til there's nothing left inside it
Or lay the cards down and just read them where they lay

CHORUS

It's elementary
Basic physics and geometry
Just the simple law of gravity
That brings you back to me-that
brings you back to me
So elementary...

Verse 2

I don't know what will come to be
Or why you are afraid of me
But there's one thing that I do
know
This time I will not let you go

I want you now-why can't I say it
I don't know which way to play it
This time I won't let you slip away...

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE

I can't tell you how I feel
So I try to say things with my eyes
But something inside me knows
when I can tell you I love you
Then my heart will truly fly

REPEAT CHORUS

Ms. Divine

Written By: Carol Rider

Verse 1

Here she comes
Live in fear
She checks her makeup in the
mirror
She sizes me up (hmm..I'm his
daughter)
And he's a lamb to the slaughter
now

Her message clear
He's full of fear as he pretends that
he can't hear
She's run this game before
Stories she could tell me

CHORUS 1

Ms. Divine
Take your time before you walk
across that line
He was hers before he was yours..

Verse 2

Watch out
He doesn't want to play
He runs the gauntlet to get to to
the buffet
Give her a week-she'll start playing
dirty
She's four times twenty-it's the
brand new thirty

She's met her match
The perfect catch
His eyes are red his socks aren't
patched
She's seen that look before
Stories she could tell me...

CHORUS 2

Ms. Divine
Take your time before you walk
across that line
He was yours before he was yours
Ms. Divine, if your kind
You'll know he's only started crying
He was hers before he was yours

Bridge

So many years of joy and tears
His thoughts unwind
Her stone's engraved "Our love
always"
Their hands entwined

It's in his heart
It's on his face
It's in his mind
Their song it plays, "Our love
always"
So if your kind

Outro

Take your time Ms. Divine
Before you walk across that line
He was hers before he was yours
He was hers before he was yours
He was hers (and he will always be
mine)

Justice

Written By: Carol Rider

Verse 1

What you're saying about me
Has little to do with reality
You tried to put me in my place
Now I'm working three jobs
tryin' to save my face

Chorus

I want to smash through your lies
But I can't afford justice
And Look you straight in the eyes
But I can't afford justice
I want you to hear my cries
But I can't afford justice
Hope a new day will rise...

Verse 2

It could happen to me or you..
A country or a continent...
It doesn't even matter what's true
It's only 'bout the money spent
The history books are written
by the side that wins
And the losers are forgotten as the
story spins...

Chorus

Bridge

The wheel of justice will turn
Greased with the oil that your
gold will burn
The evidence the best you could
buy
The story's great-too bad it's a lie

The history books are written by
the side that wins
And the losers are forgotten as the
the story spins.....

Chorus

Final Chorus

I want to smash through your lies
But I can't afford justice
And Look you straight in the eyes
But I can't afford justice
I want you to hear my cries
But I can't afford justice
Hope a new day will rise
(when I can afford it)
Hope a new day will rise
(when I can afford it)
Hope a new day will rise
When I can afford justice......

Free

Written By: Carol Rider

I couldn't sleep again last night
Nothings wrong but nothing's right
with me..yeah with me..
Took my ring off and I left the room
Stepped outside and watched the
flowers bloom..free..yeah free..
I am wild
I am free
I am lonely, lonely, lonely
Look at me...

Inside me there's an empty space
And lots of things I need to face
Free..yeah free..
Love it's nothing that you've said
or done
There's no way of telling what I will
become..free, yeah free..
I am wild
I am free
I am lonely, lonely, lonely
Look at me..
Free ain't free

I just want something I can feel
My hands up on a steering wheel
Heading out to where there are
no plans
No commitments and no demands
And no one there to watch my back
And hold me when my world turns black
I'm free now and I've paid the cost
Something's gained and
something's lost...

I'm free to face the world ahead
And sleeping in an empty bed
Free....
Free ain't free....
