Lyrics

Chicago

Written By: Meg Allison, Chris Keup

Oh, our tangled tongues
Our heavy hearts
Our hungry lips

You, you were the sun
You had to shine
We were eclipsed

I’m leaving today
Gone to Chicago
I’ll let the wind
Blow you away
I’m leaving today
Gone to Chicago
It’s only the wind
I hear saying ‘stay’

Once, I felt you close
We shared a pulse
We shared it all

You, you stole my nerve
You stole my thoughts
You stole my blood

I’m leaving today
Gone to Chicago
I’ll let the wind
Blow you away
I’m leaving today
Gone to Chicago
It’s only the wind
I hear saying ‘stay’

We were getting stuck, babe
We were out of luck, baby
Hope you take it rough, babe
And you’re sorry every day

Old Soul

Written By: Meg Allison

I’m gonna drink my wine, before I die
And propose a toast, and hold it up real high
To the man I love
The one that caught my eye
And swept me off my feet
Before I gave up hope

I’m gonna say the things
My sister never could
I’m gonna live the dream
Cause I promised her I would
And one day we’ll speak
I’ll thank her, she’ll thank me
And finally I’ll see, how much of her is me

I’m an old soul, and I don’t know where I’m going
On overdrive and I’m rolling
I’ll find my way back home
I’m an old soul, and I don’t know where I’m going
On overdrive and I’m rolling
I’ll find my way back home

I’m gonna tell my kids
Beneath this wrinkled skin
There are things I did that I wouldn’t do again
But I lived my life, and lessons learned in time
To think with my heart, and sing what’s on my mind

Wish You the Worst

Written By: Meg Allison/Joshua Stevens


V:
Saw your picture in the paper, with her
The Future Mr. and Mrs. Fisher
Look so happy I could hardly take it

You're gonna have it at our old church, I bet
And even though I know you haven't set a date yet
I checked my calendar and I can't make it

But...

CH:
Let me be the first to Wish you the Worst
Hope the both of you never make it to happily ever after
All the lies you told I hope you get what you deserve
Just let me be the first to Wish you the Worst

V:
So she's the one behind the midnight phonecalls
And all the times you smelled like cheap perfume and alcohol
Now I know what was going on behind my back
And I don't like that

So when you finally say 'I do" and kiss your new bride
I wonder how long it will take before you realize
that I'm the last best thing that you'll ever have

But...

CH:
Let me be the first to Wish you the Worst
Hope the both of you never make it to happily ever after
All the lies you told I hope you get what you deserve
Just let me be the first to Wish you the Worst

Bridge:
I guess this song's my gift to you for all the hell you put me through...

So...

CH:
Let me be the first to Wish you the Worst
Hope the both of you never make it to happily ever after
All the lies you told I hope you get what you deserve
Just let me be the first to Wish you the Worst
