Lyrics

Sunday Shade of Blue

Written By: Jake Brown/Parker Fowler

Well the morning came down with a throne and a crown
And took back what the night time stole
And the glory of Sunday makes me wish for one day
To make the pieces whole
The forecast calls for sunshine--I wish for rain
To wash away the outside and this blame

Chorus:
Yeah I know you own my heart
Somewhere too far away
And I’d come to find you and take back my love
If I only knew what you’d say
Cause I stand here holding nothing but the past
Running from a memory of a love that didn’t last
And thinking of everything and anything to do with you
And feeling nothing, feeling nothing new
But a Sunday Shade of Blue

Now I sit here looking at pictures
Of everything that used to be
And I scratch my head and remember all that was said
And think of where you could be
I damn this storm that’s raging in my soul
The thoughts of broken memories take their toll

Chorus:
Yeah I know you own my heart
Somewhere too far away
And I’d come to find you and take back my love
If I only knew what you’d say
Cause I stand here holding nothing but the past
Running from a memory of a love that didn’t last
And thinking of everything and anything to do with you
And feeling nothing, feeling nothing new
But a Sunday Shade of Blue

This Girl

Written By: Jake Brown/Parker Fowler

This Girl

This girl just won't talk to strangers
That girl has a waiting line
This girl just might be the one
But others come to mind
This girl craves a conversation
That girl wants to break you down
This girl is the reason for
The one no more around

Chorus:
We talk together
About ourselves, our friends
And everything that she thinks we could be
In a change of scenery
For worse or better
We say it's good enough
‘Til everything we once thought wonderful
Suddenly seems like it was before
This Girl

This girl stands around in circles
That girl likes the corner view
This girl says she’s innocent
Like all her lies are true
This girl just can't stand the silence
That girl stares before she speaks
This girl wears her heart out waiting
The other on her sleeve

We talk together
About ourselves, our friends
And everything that she thinks we could be
In a change of scenery
For worse or better
We say it's good enough
‘Til everything we once thought wonderful
Suddenly seems like it was before
This Girl

This girl hates the sound of single
That girl says she was born that way
This girl steals the wedding cake
While others chase bouquets
This girl swears she's falling for me
That girl found love somewhere else
This girl is the Paradise
The other one the Hell

Chorus

Black Dresses and Champagne

Written By: Jake Brown/Parker Fowler

Black Dresses and Champagne

She awakes to see the light that creeps
Through the curtain call
Her turn to rise
She puts the makeup on her face and walks
Out into a world
And a stage
Cause she sees life now
Through big darkened shades
And she turns her head out
To something calling out there
In California

The snow is falling 3 A.M. has gone
And left me standing here
Cause she wants to stay
But I can see what time will hold for me
When she will wave goodbye
Aboard to fame
Cause she sees life now
In black dresses and champagne
And she's dreaming from here
Of something shining out there
In California

So she calls me on a Tuesday with the news
And I can barely move as she explains:
I can see my name in lights
And I am free to dance the night away
And wake up in the movies
Cause I live life now
From a hotel in L.A.
And it's 3 A.M. now
And you should see the stars out
In California

And I'm still in love now
With someone who plays her life out
In California

Ink-Covered Napkins

Written By: Jake Brown/Parker Fowler

Ink-Covered Napkins

I’m slowing down
To see myself
A thousand pictures
Upon a shelf
Cause I’ve been writing
For far too long
Clichés and moments
Unfinished songs

Cause I’ve been living
Thirty-two days now
Without a chance to take a break from moving on
But I’m still breathing
Not sinking under
As I just try to put these pictures into songs

Now I’m sitting
No one to call
The streetlights bounce off of these highway walls
There are no reasons
Nothing to say
Everything’s changed but I remain the same

Cause I’ve been living
Thirty-two days now
Without a chance to take a break from moving on
But I’m still breathing
Not sinking under
As I just try to put these pictures into songs

The sunrise comes here
A vampire disguised
But I greet it proudly
With clouded eyes
A thousand pictures
Lay on the floor
Ink-covered napkins
And an opened door

Cause I’m not living
Anymore days now
Without a chance to take a break from moving on
And I can breathe here
And I can see now
Behind the pictures lies the truth to one more song
One more song
