Lyrics

Stone

Written By: Donna Fullman

Stone
Donna Fullman ©

Verse 1
A stone throw away
Is simplicity for the soul
And we listen intently to silence
And there she displays
In purity
And wonder

Bridge
How we pull ourselves
From under
The darkness
That takes over us

Chorus
Somedays
Oooh ohhh ohhh
Just somedays

Verse 2
A stone rests in a palm
Neither precious
Nor rare
We look at our imperfections
But really should we care?
Instead we find the beauty
The differences we own
And we wash our hands...

Bridge
Still holding
The Stone

Chorus
Oooh ohhh ohhh
Us somedays
Just somedays
Oooh ohhh ohhh

Bridge/chorus
How we pull ourselves
From under
The darkness
That takes over us
somedays
Just somedays
somedays

Hello Shanghai

Written By: Donna Fullman

Hello Shanghai
Donna Fullman ©

Verse 1
We don’t make things
Anymore
Just files, and files and files
That you can store
And no one could see
The future was red
They just wanted plenty
For less, for less

Chorus
The sun rises high
Hello Shanghai
Hello Shanghai

Verse 2
We don’t stay in places
Anymore
There’s miles, and miles and miles
To explore
And friends are names
Without faces
Lives washed away
Wasted
Wasted

Chorus
The sun rises high
Hello Shanghai
Hello Shanghai

Hello Shanghai
Shanghai
