Melissa Taylor-Gates Hearing her sing this in person was an experience. Music doesn't always make me feel things deep inside, but this song in particular did. Favorite track: Werewolf.

Track Name: The Girl
starry eyed and terrified, i try to catch the girl
gentle, kind, childish figure girl.
she’s everything i want to be, i want to be like her
gentle, kind, childish figure girl.

i don’t want to grow up anymore
i want to stay my age
i want to not grow old
i don’t want to grow up anymore
i want to be myself
i want to be someone else.

i want to be like
the girl

pale stare and long blonde hair she dances down the beach
perfectly, childish figure girl
this vision i’ve affixed of her is simply out of blue
the obsession with the childish figure girl

i don’t want to grow up anymore
it just seems unfair,
why should i have to bare this?
i don’t want to grow up anymore
have to learn, have to break,
have to learn from my mistakes.

i want to be like
the girl
Track Name: Werewolf
wake up from your bed
try to be someone you're not
put on your disguise
i see write through your lies

ahh-ooo
baby you're all talk
ahh-ooo
ahh-ooo
baby you're so lost
ahh-ooo

it's like looking right through glass
convince yourself it's who you are
you work hard and you try and try
until you reach the top

ahh-ooo
put on your disguise
ahh-ooo
ahh-ooo
see tight through your lies
ahh-ooo
Track Name: I'm Home
i've been gone for a very long time
for a very long time indeed
for so long
from maple trees, across to the channel sea

but now i'm home
and i can't believe the times that just ran along
but man, it's good to be home
yeah, it's good to be home

i lived upon a hilltop dressed
in a thousand shades of green,
a castle on a hill
and in the trees
a pond where birds would call their very own
but now they've flown back home
they say, it's good to be home.

and we'd all say
that every single stone that ever laid
was us in the foundations of the clay
the stars at night, the way i left my old self back behind
something i'd know when i was home

yeah, it's good to be home.

but i couldn't help
the way i felt my heart would pull away
just to think about this very same old place
familiar cash machines, teenage streets, the way the sidewalks sway
my thoughts everyday

yeah, it's good to be home.
Track Name: Boo Radley ft. The Vaudevillian
i knocked on the door of boo radley
no kiss or hug presented me
quick panic and slow words
makes me hollow to feel anything

and you try not be get upset
rewind, configure on what you said
but you can't, no you can't understand
and you wish it would all just stop
collect the past and turn into dust
but you can't, no you can't understand

i wish i could bite my tongue
stop messing up
i wish i was strong as steel
and learn to be patient and wise

but enough is just not enough
when you are born to a family of roughs
and you slant, you start to slant off the edge
you try not to get upset
but you break and bust up your glass fingers again
no, you can't, no you can't understand
Track Name: Hearts
when the sun is shining up above on me
i'll feel it in my heart
when your love is being good or bad to me
i'll thank you from the start
cause i'll feel it in my heart

i went and wasted wasteful things on me
and i could not see you were always right beside me
it was raining everyday on my tropical plain
but now i see behind the scenes
on what you're doing for me

when the sun is shining up above on me
i'll feel it in my heart
when your love is being good or bad to me
i'll thank you from the start
cause i'll feel it in my heart

i wish that i could fill your shoes
and finally see how it would be to make someone the fool
how i wish i could be the karma under everyone's feet
well actually, i think i might be happy being me

when the sun is shining up above on me
i'll feel it in my heart
when your love is being good or bad to me
i'll thank you from the start
cause i'll feel it in my heart
Track Name: The Gardener
somedays you tousle mildly
my thoughts inside of me
think how its been

somedays you come in mornings
like early mist it comes and goes away

i want to walk away
i have to say this

i used to think like that too
it's not the same when i chase his name
i don't want to float anymore

i have to leave this
no, i can't stay
that's all i have to say
Track Name: Roots
all my thoughts are tumbling these days
all my worries in a haze
took my worries, threw them out with you
took my love and divided it in two

cause i am a tree, with deep roots in the ground
and nothing can bring me down

words are just words if that's all that they are
so darling, turn that stone to a heart
sticks and stones can make me bold
but the peace in my feet completes me

cause i am a tree, with deep roots in the ground
and nothing can bring me down

you can say what you want,
do whatever you please
but nothing can bring down me.
Track Name: Amadeus
you approached me from the room over there
maybe it was the way you stared
but i thought you were nice, thought you were cool
so we went and got married right after school

moved to california that day,
and you were never, ever the same
so, i went outside and climbed a tree
i'm just trying to tell you that i'm going to leave

goodbye amadeus
i'm gunna miss our lives
i'm gunna miss our fights
goodbye amadeus
i'm gunna miss our lives
and when we said...

radiate some heat against me
my toes are getting cold beside yours
i'm just trying to make my life here
but it's kinda hard when i despise you

cause you're getting pretty cocky these days
your ego is getting more, and more insane
i never said that you were handsome
i'm just trying to make a ransom

goodbye amadeus
i'm gunna miss our lives
i'm gunna miss our fights
goodbye amadeus
i'm gunna miss our lives
and when we said...

radiate some heat against me
my toes are getting cold beside yours

i turned left and i was right about
seeing you in the corner of my eye
since then, you've grown a beard
and you're on the sidewalk asking for beer

ten years past and its been so long
since i last heard you sing our wedding songs
the next day i picked up the paper to read
and the headline screamed the death of amadeus

goodbye amadeus
i'm gunna miss our lives
i'm gunna miss our fights
goodbye amadeus
i'm gunna miss our lives
and when we said...

radiate some heat against me
my toes are getting cold beside yours

goodbye
Track Name: Little Minstrel
i can see as you walk through the door
all your tear drops and sweat have been poured
it's been a long day

every smile and idea you compose
is attached to the love that your mold
and your hands break

every step likes to string you along
until you've stretched the whole earth and you fall
and there's still a long ways
there's still a long ways to go

little minstrel, you play your lute
and break your back to play in empty rooms
it's been a long day
Track Name: The Pool of Bethesda
blue skies, i've got my head down low today
i don't know what to say this time
nobody's got a say
so i'll just sit here and wait for the answer
where am i going today, or any day

this dysfunction leads me to one place
back in your arms where i belong
in that perfect place

but i saw a pathway with no knowing,
of where do i go, and what's past my own road
no, i don't even know
and i saw a cardinal in the oak tree
red as blood and he just flew away
why can't i be that way
it's all you, lord

this dysfunction leads me to one place
back in your arms where i belong
