Best Place to Hide © 2010 Eleanor Fye I’ve discovered that the best place to hide Is right in front of you I’ve recovered from some childhood delusions Things weren’t really true And oh, it’s happening to me No, no, no, no That’s not the way things Are supposed to be Or maybe it is I can tell that you’re intrigued by the prospect Of unveiling me I should let you know though I’m not content to be a fantasy And oh, it’s not where I should be No no no no That’s not the way that I should see Or maybe it is I see fire I see rain I see the ghost of John McCain Oh now I see the sunny days And oh, they’ll never end No, they’ll never end And oh, it’s happening to me No, no, no, no That’s not the way things Are supposed to be Or maybe it is I’ve discovered that the best place to hide Is right in front of you

Big Girl 03:50
Big Girl © 2010 Eleanor Fye This is the year She stopped sleeping with a teddy bear She started growing out her hair Made a sweater to wear This is the time Of her life they tell her Seize the day Play now, you won’t have to pay It’ll be okay And oh… [solo vocal] She’s a big girl now She doesn’t have to cry She doesn’t have to wonder why She just walks and waves Hi and bye She’s a big girl now She doesn’t have to prove She just has to move On and on and on and on and on… “This is the day That the Lord has made,” her mother said. “Rise and shine my dear, get out of bed You can sleep when you’re dead.” [chorus] This is the moment This is the moment she’s been waiting for Her legs are shaking as she takes the floor No need to wait anymore…

Love, The End Music and lyrics © 2010, Eleanor Fye I waited there a while And you never came I felt a lot of things Mostly shame So I’ll go home by the liquor store And grab myself a pen And write you a letter That I’ll never send I’ll write in that letter Dear, how I loved you so I loved you so much I had to let you go When I called to see you one more time I hoped we could be friends But I guess I was wrong Love, the End [guitar/cello solo/duet]* I’ll still think about you As I wait in the rain I got nothing to lose And maybe nothing to gain And I’ll pass on by the post office On my way to the liquor store And I’ll keep writin’ letters Til I don’t feel that pain any more *I’ll keep writing, Darling How I loved you so I loved you so much I had to let you go When I called to see you one more time I hoped we could be friends But I guess I was wrong Love, the End

Set Me Free 03:59
Set Me Free Music and lyrics © 2010 Eleanor Fye My heart is beating like an inmate on a prison door I’m pacing back and forth but my feet don’t ever touch the floor I’m dyin’ here Oh, in the cage of my fear… I remember being on the outside of these walls of shame I outplayed the players and I beat the gamers at their own game No one left to blame Oh, now who’s left cryin’ shame [Chorus] Set me free Set me free Out on the open road is where I want to be I been draggin’ all these chains around for so long I just want to be set free I waited all those nights to find the one who had the key Only to find out that the one who held the secret code was me Oh, mercy me… Oh, no place left to flee [Chorus]

Five Feet Music and lyrics © 2010 Eleanor Fye Running through the woods Can’t stop to walk I got an eye on the trail One on the clock Leg cramp takes me Right off the trail I’m gonna take a stretch Gotta find a rail A few more steps and a spot I’d never seen A babbling brook surrounded by oh so much green And I thought… Who knew that a bad situation Could take me to such fascination Five feet from paradise You know I never thought I’d be so close It’s so nice Five feet from paradise And I’m takin’ some time To take it all in Five feet from paradise Friends dragged me out One Friday night I didn’t wanna go but was Too tired to put up a fight Next thing I know I’m looking ‘Cross the bar And I see your eyes Shining like two bright stars Standing right there in just a matter of feet Was just the kind of person I’d always wanted to meet And I thought… Who knew an annoying situation Could bring me such a sense of elation [Chorus]

Sing Myself to Sleep Music and Lyrics, (c) 2010 Eleanor Fye I don’t need no lame excuses ‘Bout why you can’t come out tonight I know that words have multiple uses I get the messages alright You say you wish for something But your life reflects a different way I guess I’ll stay and talk things over Give it another day Could be you’re doin’ me a favor The songs keep comin’ in every flavor And after I pray the Lord my soul to keep Guess I’ll just sing myself to sleep Maybe this is just a phase Maybe I should wait and see Or maybe I should find my rage You shouldn’t do these things to me Why do you make that promise When you know you’re gonna let me down I promise I’ll be here tomorrow I hope you come around [Chorus] I always dreamed I’d have a night In shining armor Someone to hold me steady til the morning light But now I’m lying here with no one there beside me To tell me everything will be alright If I take a big step back Will I laugh at my fragility And if I take a different tack Will you sail away with me You say you wish for something Now c’mon, you gotta make it real I want to know just what you’re thinking Want to know just how you feel [Final Chorus] Could be you’re doin’ me a favor The songs keep comin’ in every flavor And after I pray the Lord my soul to keep I might just cry myself to sleep And after I pray the Lord my soul to keep I’ll try to sing myself to sleep

She Flies 03:32
She Flies Music and lyrics © 2010 Eleanor Fye Out of the darkness She comes with a light Holding on Pressing on Wanting to get here When she arrives There’s a whole other fight In her head In her bed Struggling to stay here Dive in the ocean To learn how to fly Slowly discover Some fears are a lie Take to a cloudbank Before it is rain See the invisible Map of the pain [CHORUS] She flies She flies Open her eyes as she touches the sky She flies She flies She flies They say for her safety They’re clipping her wings Holding down Pressing down Wanting to keep her Undeterred now She defiantly sings In her heart A new start Chasing the next rings Learning to float in the Swell can be tough Panic can set in When waters are rough When dolphins swim past They look in her eye Seeing their joy makes her Just want to cry [CHORUS]

Buenos Aires 03:47
Buenos Aires © 2010 Eleanor Fye Your watch is still on Buenos Aires time Another day wishing you were mine You seem to leave something here each time A watch, a heart, I even found a dime And oh Buenos Aires Oh Buenos Aires You didn’t call at all while you were gone Why is it that I have to make you wrong It’s just that I’ve been waiting for so long My faith is tired That’s why I wrote this song Oh Buenos Aires *Oh Buenos Aires Buenos Aires Buenos Aires Someplace I want to go But where I’ve never been Will I be just visiting Or will I find myself home again? Oh Buenos Aires* … Your watch is still on Buenos Aires time Another day goes by I’m wishing you were mine Another day Another dream Another scene Another scene of breathless reuniting Oh Buenos Aires* … Oh...

Hold that Old Guitar Music and lyrics © 2010 Eleanor Fye I didn’t wanna go To the party that night Didn’t want a date Didn’t want to stay out late When I did show up He was cold alright Maybe he could see That you were into me And when you picked up your guitar To play a song for me to sing I wanted to be that instrument More than anything Touch me like you touch that old guitar Play the songs that you know always pull The strings of my heart Just wrap your arms around me And I’ll always be yours If you hold me like you hold that old guitar I know she hurt you Knocked your heart around Sometimes the most beat-up ones Make the best sound And every scratch and nick Can sweeten the sound And make better music When a new love is found And when you picked up your guitar To play a song for me to sing I wanted to be that instrument More than anything Never underestimate The power of a touch Just a gentle strum of fingers on skin Can mean so much CHORUS

Don’t Turn Your Back On Your Own Heart Music and lyrics (c) 2010, Eleanor Fye Remember that letter you never wrote The calls that you never made With every missed opportunity Another brick was laid The walls that could have built our house Now stand between us tall And we’re standing empty-handed When we could have had it all Don’t turn your back on your own heart baby Don’t let these moments pass you by When life if offering joy and laughter Why do you turn away and cry? In every rain that falls on me Is a drop that grows the tender seed So even if you turn your back on me Don’t turn your back on your own heart Our love is one that could change the world Make ‘em lay down their guns and grin But before that victory flag is unfurled You battle yourself to win You can lie alone in the bed you’ve made But please don’t lie to me Maybe you don’t need me As much as you need to be free [chorus] I forgive you mostly for what you haven’t done I’m grateful for the times that were deep and true and fun [chorus]

Love on Your Feet Music and lyrics © 2010, Eleanor Fye Why don’t you release yourself And put your worries on the shelf You may not get another chance So step up and enjoy the dance Well you know the present is your greatest gift So give your leathered soul a little lift Ya gotta love on your feet Now don’t be ‘fraid to look uncool Some things you just can’t learn in school You got to find out what you need Then choose to follow or to lead Cuz you know the present is your greatest gift So give your leathered soul a little lift Ya gotta love on your feet Put your hands up Stick your tail out Shake it all up Scream and shout

Love Stays On (Cast of Characters) Music and lyrics (c) 2010, Eleanor Fye Trust died yesterday Hope’s packin’ his bags And he’s leavin’ right after the funeral Faith’s still hangin’ on Tryin’ to make sense of it all Tryin’ to be strong And love, love, love Cleans up for another day Doesn’t try to make the others stay And after they’ve all gone their way Love stays on Honor drove in from another state Always complainin’ the food’s not that great Everybody’s glad he won’t stay too late They all know sometimes you gotta love the hate [chorus] Peace no one’s really met before Has there ever been an open door She doesn’t feel welcome and leaves pretty early though Then once she’s gone everybody wants some more [chorus] And love, love, love Lyrical Beautiful Magical Love, love, love Immeasurable Impossible Impractical Love, love, love Undeniable Exceptional Radical Love, love, love Love stays on…
