Track Name: Without You
Without You
Kaia Nutting

I’ve been lonely and forgotten,
Wanderin’ far away from home.
And I’ve forgotten where I’ve started,
And I don’t like it out here on my own.

So I wait for you to come,
And show me there is nothing worth running from.

‘Cause without you the world is gray,
When you leave me the stars seem to fade,
And without you I realize my biggest mistake,
Was letting you walk away.

I don’t know how to move forward,
If I’m doin’ this alone.
I put one foot in front of the other,
But without your love I am stone cold.

So I wait for you to come,
And show me there is nothing worth running from.

‘Cause without you the world is gray,
When you leave me the stars seem to fade,
And without you I realize my biggest mistake,
Was letting you walk away.
Track Name: Autumn Song
Autumn Song
Kaia Nutting

Welcome November, we meet again.
But you are much colder than I remember old friend.
Go back to September when summer still lingered.
There your love was greener, like before.

So Autumn can't take you, take you away.
Bring back the warmth of the former days.
Springtime is calling for you to stay.
So Autumn can't take you, take you away.

Welcome old heartache, nice to see you so soon.
Each year hope is frozen by the frost brought too soon.
And I am left singing the same old tune.
This poor heart still bleeding still belongs to you.

So Autumn can't take you, take you away.
Bring back the warmth of the former days.
Springtime is calling for you to stay.
So Autumn can't take you, take you away.

My heart is a garden that blooms in your love.
I hope you can find me before I come undone,
By the sound of my heart all the way from this grave.
Every spring is a promise the winter sustains.

Welcome November, and I am alone.
My unwanted love is turning to stone.
Hardened by winters again and again.
But the sound of my heart’s cry will never end.
Track Name: Evermore True
Evermore True
Kaia Nutting

So I stepped off the face of the earth for a while,
Hid my laughter deeper in my smile,
But I never lost my love for you, It only grew evermore true.

Like a lover lost in a crowded room,
Searched the stars to find my way to you.
But what I found kept me close to you.
Now I know my love is evermore true.

I only stood worlds away, worlds away from you.
I lost myself wandering worlds away, trying to find my way, to you.

Writing music in a dark, dark room,
These songs became my only letters to you,
Sailing across a distant sea, where you’re miles away from me.

I lost myself in this long, long search,
Found myself digging for a pennies-worth,
And in the end all that was unearthed, is that I’m broken, through and through.

Writing stories in my own love song,
Tried to make the world play along,
Pretending not to notice you were gone a long time ago.

But when our dreams come crashing down,
Who will be there to hear the sound,
I’ve been living in my own ghost town, with my memories and my doubts.

Do you think, you could love someone, you could love someone like me?
After all I’ve done, could you love someone, could you love someone like me?

‘Cause I know my love was made for you,
Like a flower always about to bloom,
Beating the sky until I’m black and blue,
Only to be evermore true.
I’ll only be evermore true.
Track Name: Come Running Back
Come Running Back
Kaia Nutting

Please tell me anything, but that you’re giving up.
You know I won’t let you down when I brought you up.
Strung out like a rose over a flame.
My heart is burning but beating just the same.

I will love you more than yesterday,
I can’t help but love you more each passing day.

If you can believe for a second I love you,
Would you stop dead in your tracks?
If you knew how much I need you,
Would you come running back?
Would you come running back?

My love’s like a well that doesn’t run dry.
So why don’t you drink deep, you won’t even try.
My love’s like a bell ringing so clear,
But if you’re not listening you’ll never hear.

How I will love you when the mystery is gone,
I will love you when everything feels wrong.

If you can believe for a second I love you,
Would you stop dead in your tracks?
If you knew how much I need you,
Would you come running back?
Would you come running back?

Yes she’s lovely but can she set you free?
Can she make you all you want to be? (Ya, ya, ya ya…)

‘Cause I believe for a second you love me
When you stop dead in your tracks.
And I know somehow you need me
When will you come running back?
When will you come running back?
You’re never coming back.
Track Name: I Won't Give Up
I Won't Give Up
Kaia Nutting

I, I have lost all my hope for tomorrow.
But I, I won’t give up, I won’t give up, no not on you.

Though, I am weak I will keep persevering.
‘Cause you will see me through, I won’t give up, no not on you.

‘Cause even when the love is gone, the memories live on.
You were always there for me through the storm.
And even in the darkest night, your love is something I can’t fight.
I always find you there, all the way at the bottom.

This, this will end. I will mend walking stronger.
When the road is tough, I think of you and that’s enough.

‘Cause even when the love is gone, the memories live on.
You were always there for me through the storm.
And even in the darkest night, your love is something I can’t fight.
I always find you there, all the way at the bottom.

I wish that I could give my best to you,
But this world leaves me bruised.
You know I’d give it all for you.
You and I know that you deserve better,
But leaving you, oh I’d never,
Never walk away from you.

‘Cause even when the pain is gone, the memories live on.
You were always there for me through the storm.
And even in the darkest night, your love is something I can’t fight.
I always find you there, all the way at the bottom.

I, I have lost all my pain and my sorrow.
‘Cause you never gave up, so I give all myself to you.
You never gave up, so I give all myself to you.
You never gave up, so I give all myself to you.
Track Name: Glass Jars
Glass Jars
Kaia Nutting

I looked for you in every glass jar, I looked for you.
And I looked behind every secret I knew, but I never found you.

But you were watching over me, patient, oh patiently.
Through all the bruises, I couldn’t see you were always there for me,
And you never stopped loving me.
No you never stopped loving me.

So I opened each jar that I put you in, I opened them.
And I sorted the pieces of myself, but so many were missing.

‘Til you opened up my heart, wider than a canyon.
And you filled me with your love, deeper than the ocean.
And you were watching over me, even when I couldn’t see,
That you were all I really need.
And you never stopped loving me.
No you never stopped loving me.

I looked for you in every glass jar, I looked for you.
But I never knew you were inside my heart.
That’s where I found you.
