2010 – Water Rising

Lyrics from the 2010 EP “Water Rising”

Tennessee
music and lyrics by Mary Scholz

 I drove through Tennessee today
Passing life in my own way
I thought for long of words to say
‘Bout the mountains and the water

I drive past signs, they point me on
Halfway down the road, I’m gone
I cannot see where I belong
But I’m counting all the days

And up the hills I climb
Towards the clouds and bright blue skies
And I cannot seem to describe
Tennessee
And the road I’m on

I’m driving past a green grass field
And all at once I cannot yield
The way the light of sun reveals
All the colors in the day

And oh this road I’m driving down
Reminds me of my own home town
And if they all could see me now
How I’m making my own way

And up the hills I climb
Towards the clouds and bright blue skies
And I cannot seem to describe
Tennessee
And the road I’m on

Yeah you have your words
About things that I do
But I will not give up I’ll follow through
Yes I’ll follow through

I’ve seen this sun, yeah,
I’ve seen this sun before
I’ve seen this open
I’ve seen this open door
I’ve seen the way it makes me see so much more

I’ve seen this sun, yeah
I’ve seen this sun before
I’ve seen this open
I’ve seen this open door

And up the hills I climb
Towards the clouds and bright blue skies
And I cannot seem to describe
Tennessee
And the road I’m on

 

Into the Background
music and lyrics by Mary Scholz

I stand within
I stand and grin
For all our words and motions

We wanted life
With all it’s worlds
And every drop of every ocean

I let you rewind
And then you
You left me behind

And I will
Fade into the darkness Where I can’t be heard
And I will
Chase the silence of your every secret word
Cause I am
Not your answer and I’m not your chosen girl
And I will
Fade Into the Background of your ever changing world

Do you see me for everything
Or all I have to offer?

Our every day
Just melted in
With all your broken books
And rafters

And I will
Fade into the darkness Where I can’t be heard
And I will
Chase the silence of your every secret word
Cause I am
Not your answer and I’m not your chosen girl
And I will
Fade Into the Background of your ever changing world

Trade me in
Trade me because you
You know you can
Trade me in because it’s
It’s easier then
Trade me in because you know if you will and you would
Then you’d win

Fade into the darkness Where I can’t be heard
And I will
Chase the silence of your every secret word
Cause I am
Not your answer and I’m not your chosen girl
And I will
Fade Into the Background of your ever changing world

Fade Into the Background of your ever changing world

Fade Into the Background of your world….

 

Hide
music and lyrics by Mary Scholz

I wait for Water Rising
I take your hand in mine
We look to the horizon
We know there’s no more time

Awake my heart is racing
Asleep my mind is free
Awake my eyes are bleeding
Asleep you’re gone from me

It’s arms are cold and hurried
Your hands were always warm
I feel you fingers ripping
Away into the storm

Awake my heart is racing
Asleep my mind is free
Awake my eyes are bleeding
Asleep you’re gone from me

Awake my heart from dreaming
Awake my eyes from tears
Awake my mind from slipping
Awake me from my fears

 

Water Rising
music and lyrics by Mary Scholz

Waking in the early morning
To the sound of all your sweaters
And your ragged magazines

Keeping eyes closed
So you will not know
That I am floating somewhere
In between the hole in my dreams

And I cannot begin to
Find the words to tell you
Of how afraid I am
Of never moving forward in my life
And I cannot begin
Fight my way through this roof
So I stay inside,
Pull the covers to my eyes

And it makes me
Hide
Take me on this
Ride

Wishing you were waiting for me
With a bottle of rose, on a Sunday afternoon
Wishing we could just move slowly
But afraid of all the consequences slow movements do

And I cannot begin to
Find my honest and true
Or past the televised importance of
All the things we do
And I cannot begin to
Fight my way through this roof
So I stay inside
Pull the covers to my eyes

And it makes me
Hide
Take me on this
Ride

And I wait
Yes I wait
I wait
Yes I wait

And it makes me
Hide
Take me on this
Ride

Hide
Take me on this
Ride

Hide
Take me on this
Ride

Hide
Hide
Hide
Hide

Take me on this
Ride
Ride
Ride

Oooh
