Lyrics

Softly Slowly

Written By: Liz Foster

Softly, Slowly - 1/9/04
Liz Foster

I remember the day we met
The sky was blue and so were you
I remember wanting less
But taking more than I bargained for
You were like a waning moon
And you tucked away your cards too soon
I confess I didn’t know
How bright that light inside you grows
It grows it grows

Softly slowly you unfold me
Like a kite you let me float on the winds
Of second chances

Softly slowly you unfold me
Like a light you let me burn in the sky
Like it’s the fourth of July

I remember we met again
Just for a day, you couldn’t stay
I remember wanting three
But taking less for propriety
You were like a raging sea
You pulled me under enraptured me
I confess I didn’t know
The chance I took with that second look
You glow you glow

Softly slowly you unfold me
Like a kite you let me float on the winds
Of second chances

Softly slowly you unfold me
Like a light you let me burn so bright
Like it’s a full moon night

Oh…softly…slowly

Softly, you float, softly you glow etc.
Softly you go away from me.

NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW
By Liz Foster and Rich Ferguson
June 5, 2007

You got a weapon in your pocket
No one needs to know
You got a restless desire
No one needs to know
You are the night that hides the crime
No one needs to know
This is the stain you try to hide
Oh no, no, no, no one needs to know

I lied in my confession
No one needs to know
Dirty hand in the holy water
No one needs to know
I kissed my cousin on the lips
No one needs to know
I just like to feel it slip

Take me down to where the ocean meets the sand
Wash me clean of all this bloodshed on my hands
Push me under ‘till redemption takes me back

You took the cemetery flowers
No one needs to know
You shoot first and steal second
No one needs to know
A life of piety you’ll never comprehend
All your broken laws you couldn’t ever mend

Oh no, no one needs to know

I stole the mocking bird’s song
No one needs to know
Now I sing lead in the devil’s choir
No one needs to know
There is a ghost town in my heart
I’m gonna burn it down before it ever gets to start

Take me down to where the ocean meets the sand
Wash me clean of all this bloodshed on my hands
Push me under ‘till redemption takes me back

Oh, woah, oh, woah, hey, hey, hey…etc.

You are the sirens in my dream
You are a cagey sleight of hand
Every sultry, blue move that you make
You are temptation that I cannot forsake
Oh no, no, no, no one needs to know (fade)
