Track Name: Gone Electric
you let your hair grow long
you’ve started a new phase
playing major songs in minor keys
old leather jacket on
all of your piercings in place
motorcycle boots and tattooed sleeves

nobody ever said it would be easy to do
that change has got to start with you

you’ve gone electric now

you’re bursting at the seams
the world’s at your doorstep
breaking every wave with your body
troubled times it seems
ain’t gonna haunt ya no more
you’re solid at the core
of your own belief

if somebody warned you it gets lonely
it does
tonight I’m glad I found your love

we’ve gone electric
gone electric
gone electric now
we’ve gone electric, gone electric
gone electric now
we’ve gone electric, gone electric
gone electric now
gone electric

come on pick up the phone
they’re trying to reach you
they’ve grown a bit concerned
by what they’ve seen
things that mom and dad
just didn’t teach you
so many lessons learned
on the street
maybe they told you it was a problem you had
maybe they told you there’d be no coming back
the lines they sold you rung so hollow and sad
they could write it on your epitaph

he’s gone electric
gone electric
gone electric now
he's gone electric, gone electric
gone electric now
he’s gone electric, gone electric
gone electric now
gone electric

he’s gone electric
gone electric
gone electric now
you’ve gone electric, gone electric
gone electric now
we’ve gone electric, gone electric
gone electric now
gone electric
Track Name: Sweet With Bitter
walking a wire
with our hearts strung on the line
blind by desire
if I fall it's by design

everyone I know has gone up in smoke
I'm alone
there's no looking backwards
make like a stone and roll on

love unrequited
how we yearn for what we cannot own
freedom has many forms
liberate me in bondage

lost in all the looks that we steal
hard to know what's right
much less what's real
darling this feels like a dream
but I'm not high
and I'm not asleep yet

everyone we know has gone up in smoke
we're alone
there's no looking backwards
make like a stone and roll on
nothing to show
but two broken souls on the road
let's see where it leads us
finding what frees us

hey, I'm excited
I believe we've turned a corner
drunk on imbibing
all the sweet with bitter
