Lyrics

Somethin' Bigger

Written By: Jennifer Ray, Sarah Ray

Hey, ya’ know I got a funny shaped hole
Can’t reach it with a ten foot pole.
Noticed it the other day
It just won’t go away.
There’s a burnin’ here, ya’ see
And it’s consuming every inch of me.
A yearning to find something way beyond the boundaries of my mind.

I got this crazy feelin’
I’m dealin’ with something bigger than me
Or maybe I’m mistaken, overtaken
Somethin’ bigger’s dealin’ with me.
I got this crazy feelin’
I’m dealin’ with somethin’ bigger
Or maybe I’m mistaken, overtaken…

Hey, ya know I took a cab today
The man was yellin’ out the window at the rain.
I guess he feels just as hopeless as me
So many things we can’t explain.
I try to find another quick fix
Fill this place with shapes that just don’t fit.
In search of the key to help me solve this inner mystery.

Ooh oh ooh oh ooh oh ooh oh ooh oh

I watch the people rushin’ by
Emptiness in their eyes, emptiness in their eyes.
The greed and the glitter they make me shiver.
This city can be cold as ice, this city can be cold as ice.
Just one thing can fill this hole of mine.

Cause nothin’ else is ever gonna
Fill, fill, fill, fill

Hey, ya’ know I got a funny shaped hole
Can’t reach it with a ten foot pole.
Noticed it the other day
It just won’t go, just won’t go away.

3000 Miles From California

Written By: Jennifer Ray, Sarah Ray

Three thousand miles from California
And I am missin’ my home
Three thousand miles over these mountains from ya’
Wish I could see how much you’ve grown
Lord, I’m missin’ my home

And I wonder if you think of me
I wonder if your sun is shining where you are
And I wonder if you’re missin’ me
Wish I wasn’t so far, wish I wasn’t so far, wish I wasn’t so far

Life here is harsher on the other coast
No one to keep me company
Just me, my guitar and the Holy Ghost
And old silent Misery
Home, I wish I could see

And I wonder if you think of me
I wonder if your sun is shining where you are
And I wonder if you’re missin’ me
Wish I wasn’t so far, wish I wasn’t so far, wish I wasn’t so far
You called me just yesterday, asked if I was okay
I said I’m survivin’, my world is thrivin’, but I was lyin’, lyin’ lyin’

(Should have said…) I wonder if you think of me
I wonder if your sun is shining where you are
And I wonder if you’re missin’ me
Wish I wasn’t so far, wish I wasn’t so far, wish I wasn’t so far

Think I’m headin’ back to California
Where I’m renewed by the ocean breeze
Catchin’ the redeye back to California
Where the sun melts into the sea, yeah
Home is callin’ to me

And I wonder if you think of me
I wonder if your sun is shining where you are
And I wonder if you’re missin’ me
Wish I wasn’t so far, wish I wasn’t so far, wish I wasn’t so far

Wherever You Wander

Written By: Jennifer Ray, Sarah Ray

I hope you come back someday, after you’ve found your way
Somewhere beyond this place, will you remember my face?
I hope you come back someday, when you’ve found what you’re searching for
Either way, come what may. Oh, please remember my face.

Oh wherever you go, wherever you are
May the long night not defeat you, may the sun rise up to greet you
Wherever you wander

I’ll never forget the sky, reflected in your eyes
You touched me deep inside, oh you have changed my life, and I
I pray I’ll find you here, after your purpose is clear
Though deep inside I fear, that you will not appear, no no

You etched our initials on this tree, and I am tryin to conceive
You etched our initials on this tree and I am tryin to believe
That you will fly if I will simply set you free, I must set you free, I must set you

Free, wherever you go, wherever you are, wherever you wander
May the long night not defeat you, may the sun rise up to greet you
Wherever you wander

Oh wherever you go, wherever you are
Wherever you wander, oh oh wherever you go, wherever you are
May you one day find your way back to me, to me, to me
To me, wherever you wander
