Track Name: Crow Girl
Crow Girl

I can’t sit still
I’m eating sugar with a spoon
Heart to heart in kitchen
You’re telling me your hopes and dreams
Then suddenly, ooh pretty!

Chorus
I’m a crow girl
Always ready to fly
Bright and shiny things
Always catch my eye
Catch my eye
Catch my eye

Magic made me
I tell people I’m from the moon
You’re asking for my help
Try to concentrate on your words
But suddenly, ooh pretty!

I’m a crow girl
Always ready to fly
Bright and shiny things
Always catch my eye
Catch my eye
Catch my eye

Bridge
I’ll fly in when you least expect it
But I’m not one to depend upon
Expectations give me hives
When you need me I’ll be gone
Cause I’m a crow girl

I’m a crow girl
Always ready to fly
Bright and shiny things
Always catch my eye
Catch my eye
Catch my eye

I’m endearing
Crinkle some wrappers, I’ll be there
Flitter like a butterfly
I can be fierce for a moment
Then suddenly, ooh pretty!

I’m a crow girl
Always ready to fly
Bright and shiny things
Always catch my eye
Catch my eye
Catch my eye

I’m exasperating
You can’t help but love me
I’m exasperating
You can’t help but love me
I’m exasperating
You can’t help but love me
But you can’t count on me
Count on me
Don’t count on me
Track Name: Level Up
Level Up

Verse:
I always wanted a boy so smart
But being with you is gonna break my heart
It's late at night and it's time for bed
But you haven't heard a word I've said

Your fingers are moving and your pulse is racing
But that’s not me, that’s your Playstation
You're high if you think that's the way to score.
Time to level up baby, or I'm out the door.

Chorus:
Pay attention pay attention
Pay attention to me
Step away from the gadgets or we’re history
(repeat)

Verse:
It’s not like I’m asking you to go to the mall
I don’t need you to talk about your feelings at all
You said you were just gonna Google one thing
I’ve been texting from the bedroom and you’re not answering

Getting new toys really turns you on
But baby it’s time to put that joystick down
You may be cute but I can’t take it no more
Time to level up baby or I’m out the door.

Chorus:
Pay attention pay attention
Pay attention to me
Step away from the gadgets or we’re history
(repeat)
Track Name: Ignite
Ignite

You talk about all the things
I can't bring myself to say
You shout your values to the world
And I'm just breathing in your bouquet
Breathing in your bouquet

You pluck and you pop your guitar
You rock out and you croon
Your music defies any label
You never had a silver spoon
Nope you never had a silver spoon

Ani you don't have to get your gun
You make your stand with words that are sharp as swords
Yet you always make your point
You’re always ready to ignite a spark
A spark

Your music rolls over me
Ani you're a massive typhoon
You make music for love
Don't want to be a tycoon
Don’t wanna be a tycoon

You shine a light on injustice
As bright as high noon
But you whisper me secrets
Underneath a full moon
A full bright moon

Ani you don't have to get your gun
You make your stand with words that are sharp as swords
Yet you always make your point
You’re always ready to ignite a spark
A spark
A spark
A spark

A little longer

You have to get moving
Before you go all out

Some days
You legs feel heavy
Some days
Can’t make yourself go
Any farther

Yell: I'm talking to you!!!

Some days
Can barely make yourself do it
Some days
It takes all to go
A little farther

Before you can get out
You have get moving
Before you go all out

Before you can get out
You have to get moving
Before you go all out

You love
Get up
Get out
Make it 1 - 2
…Count

Choose love
Get up

Track Name: The Patio
The Patio

One day you’re gonna wake up and find
Life is passing you by and by
Want to get rid of?
There’s no need for you to deny

Something I thought I always wanted
A patio to sit and hang
Drink beers, have parties
Chill out alone or with the band

Spoken word: I finally realized, it is never going to happen
It’s not that I can’t make it happen
It’s just, seriously, I am never going to sit down on that patio

A patio
Would be wasted on me
Instead of getting wasted on the patio
I’m on to the next thing, next thing, next thing

A patio, would be wasted on me
Instead of getting wasted on the patio
I’m on to the next thing, next thing, next thing

Sometimes you just need to let go of
Things you’re never gonna do
Let go of the past
Cause letting go is a virtue

Patio photos I’ve collected
Photos now a pile of tinder
Let go of the dreams
Burned into a pile of cinder

Spoken word: I don’t feel bad about letting go of this dream
I just realized the kind of person I am
There’s just too much going on to sit down on that patio

A patio
Would be wasted on me
Instead of getting wasted on the patio
I’m on to the next thing, next thing, next thing
The next thing, next thing, next thing
The next thing, next thing, next thing
