Lyrics

Little Miss Sunshine

Written By: Courtney Lynn

i watched you dance toward the light
i saw you peer into the sky
well i just couldn't take my mind off you
this time

you could show me what you like
and you could let me come inside
and we could watch a dvd or something
tonight

you should feel good
everyday you should
'cause i just love to see you smile or something
all the time

i can't even look you in the eye
sometimes i wish my feelings would subside
'cause i just think we're too young or something
sometimes

but you should feel good
everyday you should
'cause i just love to hear you laugh or something
all the time

i watched you dance toward the light
i saw you peer into the sky
well i just couldn't take my mind off you
this time

Madera Verdosa Sinfonia

Written By: Courtney Lynn

You the eyes
and I the ears
A symphony of storms
You'll see;
I'll hear.

It's the shadow of the moth
that I won't have to fear.
It's the ticking of the clocks
that you won't have to hear.

I speak to you without hesitation,
but I think of you too hard
Like some vertical horizon
From another shade of stars..

A supernova on the sea;
A sunrise on the beach.

You the eyes
and I the ears
Aphrodite cries her music tears
I swear, I saw the edge of the rain.
I swear, I hear the edge of the rain.
Skies of colour;
Lightning, thunder.

A supernova on the sea;
A sunrise on the beach.

In a different world
if you be yellow I'll be green.
In a different world
dance the rain and breathe the trees.
In a different world
you'll see me like you see green.
In a different world
I'll hear your voice like yellow breeze.

Skies of colour;
Lightning, thunder.
Skies of colour;
Lightning, thunder.

Rainbow Eyes

Written By: Courtney Lynn

Travelled through the rocky tunnels
thoughts of blue and banshee bubbles
A melancholy morning sky
but sun will rise, yeah, the sun will rise

I want to know your rainbow eyes
be in front, and learn what's behind
and baby I want you to know mine
I want to be inside your rainbow eyes

Abyss turned into the moon that night
was mountains and deserts and hot chocolate sweaters
was ninjas and flash loves
and the beautiful weather

Stars were shining for our minds
We saw the earth in a different light

I want to know your rainbow eyes
be in front, and learn what's behind
and baby I want you to know mine
I want to be inside your rainbow eyes

Strength of ninjas guide our bodies home
we lit the colours with our fire souls
sprinkle tribe dust from our mother earth
pledge to the moon with our subtle words

I want to know your rainbow eyes
be in front, and learn what's behind
and baby I want you to know mine
I want to be inside your rainbow eyes

every now and then

Written By: Courtney Lynn

sit in the park
wait for dark
I fill my head with strange things
just passing the time
between day and night
I close my eyes with strange dreams

every now and then I think of you
wonder what it is you do
each day I think of you
I wonder if you think of me too

no! I’m not living my life
like a dead man's wife
so close, so close to being without you.
You said, "are you smoking enough?
"girl you look rough.."
I swear to god, I swore I’d forget you

but every now and then I think of you
wonder what it is you do
each day I think of you
I wonder if you think of me too

funny what happens to lovers
when they don't belong with one another.
We were so young and stupid,
and hey- you're the one who fled undercover

so every now and then I think of you;
I wonder if you think of me too.
