"Lifted Off The Ground" (2010)




Broken lyrics - Chely Wright

Why can't you just believe in me?
Not everyone is the enemy
I'm trying hard I swear I am
I'm doin' the best I can

But I'm Broken
Broken

I'm wagin' war up in my head
Last time I loved it 'bout left me dead
And you're no better off 'cause you got burned too
By someone you thought you really knew

Now you're Broken
Broken

You hold a little back in case I leave
That way I can't take all of you
But that guarded part is the part I need
So I don't feel like I'm a fool

Last time that I let somebody in
It really hurt me but that was then
So here we are, just you and me
The sum of all our injuries

Don't try to push me 'cause I might break
Not sure how much of this I can take
So if you otta go, well that's alright too
Guess there's not a lot that we can do

'Cause we're Broken
Broken

You hold a little back in case I leave
That way I can't take all of you
But that guarded part is the part I need
So I don't feel like I'm a fool

Yeah, we're Broken
Baby we're Broken

Heavenly Days lyrics - chely Wright

Heavenly Days
Look at that sky
It could've been rainin'
It could've been dry
It could've been cloudy
It could've been clear
It could've been sunshine
It could've been drear
It could've been so many ways
Heavenly Days

Havenly Days
So what do we do?
Dare to be different
Dare to be true
Bury the treasure
Like we've always done
Or crawl from the wreckage
And walk in the sun
Fannin' the flame 'til it's a blaze
Heavenly Days

Heavenly Days
Look at us now
We're comin' up roses
And takin' a bow
Tennessee tomboy
Feminine girl
Takin' a ride
On the top of the world
Nobody's master
Nobody's slave
Heavenly Days

It's your place in line
It's your right of birth
It's your light to shine
Down on God's green earth
It's your brother's hand
It's your sister's smile
It's your father's plan
For your mother's child
And it's comin' in waves
Heavenly Days

Hang Out In Your Heart lyrics - Chely Wright

Taste me in your morning coffee 
Feel me in the air 
When the sunlight warms your skin 
Baby, think of me 

See me standing there beside you 
When you know that your alone 
And hear our conversations when you breathe 

And baby, 
Tell me where you are 
If I can't make it 
Let me hangout in your heart 

I know you don't really need me, 
But still you opened up 
And I guess that's why this all feels so damn good 

You know I don't need you either 
But we want the want enough 
And if we could deny it 
We probably would 

And baby, 
Tell me where you are 
If I can't make it 
Let me hangout in your heart 

So, I will let the echoes of your laughter 
fill my mind 
and I won't try to fight the drug you are 

And maybe you will welcome for to meet from time to time 
And you just let me hang out in your heart 
Won't you let me hangout in your heart

Notes To The Coroner lyrics - Chely Wright

I hope I haven't been lying here long
I'd say, "I told you so," but I'm long gone
Who called you? Who found me?
Who had to spread the news?
I hope it wasn't my sister

I wrote it down for you in case I didn't survive
In a black notebook right there by my side
Be sure to read it, it'll tell you everything
Go ahead and start from December

These are my notes to the coroner
Clues with no compromise
Notes to the coroner
Details of my demise

You'll wanna take my blod to smear on a slide
But if you just read on you'll know how I died
Terminal sadness, chronic regret
A big ball of pain in pajamas

These are my notes to the coroner
Clues with no compromise
Notes to the coroner
Details of my demise

Palpitations of a broken heart
Triggered my shortness of breath
I lost too much love and then I fell apart
Official cause of my death

Notes to the coroner
Clues with no compromise
Notes to the coroner
Details of my demise

These are my notes to the coroner
Clues with no compromise
Notes to the coroner
Details of my demise

Snow Globe lyrics - Chely Wright

My bellybutton came untied
The elevator turned to stone
I ran with waving arms
Then I lifted off the ground

I took a pill I shouldn't have
I'm not so sorry that I did
'Cause I can't wait to slip out where
I'm lost and can't be found

Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba

I see my mother, she is young
She doesn't know it's me I guess
We talk about the planets
Then run wildly down the street

The circles and the squares
Are shaking one another's hands
And I'm about to get on stage
But I'm too naked for to sing

Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba

Oh is this a bad dream?
Or the best dream that I've ever had?
And oh what is waiting, beyond the mirror,
Beyond the curtain, 
Beyond what fades into the black?

I'm floating in a snow globe
Being tossed around like glitter
And I think I'm being shot at
So I swing and swing in vain

Apostrophes and commas
They are doing all that they do
Trying to reconcile some truth
In an atmosphere insane

Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba

Like Me lyrics - Chely wright

Without your glasses you just plain can't see
You favorite color for the most part is green
You're close to your grandma on your mother's side
You can count up on one hand the times you have lied

You won't eat a tomato on a double-dog dare
You don't think you're a beauty but you do like your hair
Your complex and tricky, yet someways you're not
You're up some, you're down some
You're cold and you're hot

And who's gonna end up holdin' your hand-
A beautiful woman or a tall, handsome man?
There's no doubt they'll love you, but it's yet to be seen:
Will anyone ever know you like me?

Will anyone ever know you like me?

You like plantin' flowers, that's heaven to you
Crack open a beer when you're planting through
You'll paint all your toenails if you have time,
while listening to Willie, Dylan and Pride

And who's gonna end up holdin' your hand-
A beautiful woman or a tall, handsome man?
There's no doubt they'll love you, but it's yet to be seen:
Will anyone ever know you like me?

You'd rather make-out then make love all night
You like if your bath is too hot
Your closet is cluttered with dress pants and Levis that you wish you'd never bought

And who's gonna end up holdin' your hand-
A beautiful woman or a tall, handsome man?
There's no doubt they'll love you, but it's yet to be seen:
Will anyone ever know you like me?

Will anyone ever know you like me?

That Train lyrics - Chely Wright

There's no way that I could ever do the things it does
Cradle tons of gravel and the timbers all piled up
Be that as it may I still do wish that I could be-
Made of rivets made of steel,
And built for speed

Hey-hey, hey
Hey-hey, hey
I wanna be that train
I wanna be that free
Hang onto that track is all they'll ever ask of me
Smooth heavy wheels to roll me away
I wanna be that train

I'd get to see the mountains and the planes from coast to coast
Many might adore me but they wouldn't get too close
I'd never be that lonely 'cause my engine and caboose,
Wouldn't leave me, we'd be bound
Yeah, we'd be breakin' loose

Hey-hey, hey
Hey-hey, hey
I wanna be that train
I wanna be that free
Hang onto that track is all they'll ever ask of me
Smooth heavy wheels to roll me away
I wanna be that train

Hey-hey, hey
Hey-hey, hey
Hey-hey, hey
Hey-hey, hey
I wanna be that train
I wanna be that free
Hang onto that track is all they'll ever ask of me
Smooth heavy wheels to roll me away
I wanna be that train

I wanna be that train
I wanna be that...
Train

Damn Liar lyrics - Chely Wright

Does anybody really know you?
Can anybody say they truly do?

You swear that you're a hick retriever
Your limbs are loaded down with rotten fruit

You gotta keep on spinnin' around
Never let your worlds collide
'Cause if we all start talkin' there might be nowhere for you to hide

You're a damn liar
A damn liar
A damn liar
How'd you make it this far
Being a, a damn liar
You damn liar
A damn liar
That's what you are

Don't you find it all confusin'
keeping up with all the tales you tell?
You're scared to death that I'll run into the one before me you put through hell

To you we're all disposable and that's exactly what you do
You just deleted me 'cause I was on to you

You're a damn liar
A damn liar
A damn liar
How'd you make it this far
Being a, a damn liar
You damn liar
A damn liar
That's what you are

You're a damn liar
A damn liar
A damn liar
How'd you make it this far
Bein' a damn liar
Miserable liar
Damn liar
That's what you are
Damn liar
A damn liar
You're a damn liar
How'd you make it this far
Damn liar
You fuckin' liar
You're a damn liar
That's what you are

Wish Me Away lyrics - Chely Wright

Close your eyes squeeze them tight 
I wish I may, I wish I might 
Keep on repeating your little chant 
You might believe it but I just can't 

Wish me away, wish me away 

Keep talking louder that's what you do 
You're just shouting over you 
Trying to ignore the voice inside 
You couldn't be more like a child 

To wish me away, wish me away 
Won't wish, hope, and pray 
Wish me away 

We didn't have an easy time 
but whatever it was it was your's and mine 
it wasn't always perfect or fair 
You don't want it but it's still there 

How's it workin' for you so far? 
Do you feel better the longer we're apart? 
Oh baby love's not like nicotine 
You still see me, don't you, in your dreams 

Wish me away, wish me away 
Won't wish, hope, and pray 
Wish me away 

Wish me away, wish me away 
Won't wish, hope, and pray 
Wish me away
