Track Name: Sleep Away Holly
Hail
It's coming down hard now
Better find cover in the blankets and the sheets
Pale
The dark ain't kind now
Why do these shadows always follow me

Remember last night when I was dreaming
You gave me the time of day
You surprised me with your interest
You seduced me such a way
And I awoke in such confusion
I coulda sworn I felt your touch
But I romanticize illusions far too much
Far too much

Fail
The word flies through our ears
It lays a trail
A fire burns our eyes
Oh, is it hell or limbo
We don't even know it
We don't even know it
Let me sleep away Holly till the darkness goes away

Jail
The prison in your mind
This lonely cell
Time to flee away to another land
Call it hell or limbo
You don't even know it
You don't wanna blow it
You just sleep away Holly till the darkness goes away

Sail
You're moving with the wind now
And I don't know when I will see your face
Bail
You're leaving it behind now
I'm begging it'll do us good this way

Remember those times when it was different
When the sunshine and the rain
Fell together through the trees
And all the colors knew our names
You know I'm trying to keep you with me
But you're water in my hands
Falling through my fingers
Disappearing in the sand

Fail
The word flies through our ears
It lays a trail
A fire burns our eyes
Oh, is it hell or limbo
We don't even know it
We don't even know it
Let me sleep away Holly till the darkness goes away

Jail
The prison in your mind
This lonely cell
Time to flee away to another land
Call it hell or limbo
You don't even know it
You pray you don't blow it
You just sleep away Holly till the darkness goes away

Till the darkness goes away
Till the dark is gone
I just close my eyes and pray
Till the darkness goes away
Track Name: Holly Wonder
Holly knows the people in town
Happier times when she was around
Holly would light up the room, it's true
It's just something she could do
Holly knows the people in town
Lately, they haven't seen her around
I heard she's down
Fishing for golden crowns
Think we better send the clowns

I try to be a good friend and a lover
And I cry every time I think that I was
But I wasn't enough
And I lie, cause it keeps you at bay
Far far away from my heart
Oh baby

Holly's thinking bout some crazy things
Holly's having awfully sexy dreams
She's kissing a woman
Touching a woman
Loving on a woman
And she couldn't be happier, no no
Oh baby!
Oh yeah you, what you put me through!!

Holly has the magic in hand
Sneaking out late any time she can
She’s dancing with the fairies of land and sea in skies of berry green
But dreamings just for sleeping
There ain't no use in keeping hold of something if something's nothing
Well she's sick of nothing but asking for better days

I try to be a good friend and a lover
And I cry every time I think that I was
But I wasn't enough
And I'll die, but I damn sure won't let a man make a fool outta me
Oh baby

Holly dusts off her sword and shield
Travels by horse through crimson fields
Destined to find where monsters lay
She rides with the night
She couldn't be happier
Up a mountain, into a cave
Where the monster sleeps
And she softly creeps
And she sticks that sword right between his eyes
Screaming "glory be!! I'm me, I'm free, and I'm bad!"
Oh baby, I'm bad!
Dontcha know I'm bad, baby!!
And I won't ever let a man make a fool outta me again, no no no!

Holly's thinking bout some crazy things
Holly's having awfully sexy dreams
She's kissing a woman
Touching a woman
Loving on a woman
And she couldn't be happier, no no
