Track 1. Two to Tango

Once ago and far upon a long long time away
I dreamed about the life I’d grow to live
I pictured all the wicked souls who’d go and break my heart
I conjured up the one I would forgive

And in my mind, I always was the victim
‘Cause that is how the stories all were told
But I was not cut out to be the damsel in distress
No that was never meant to be my role

     So demonize me, it takes two to tango
     When you’re listening to Django you can’t help but make mistakes
     Yeah demonize me, I was just as much at fault
     You bring the wound I’ll bring the salt, if that’s what it takes

So I was on this pedestal left out on display
Nowhere left for me to go but down (down, down)
When you fall from such great heights some things get broken on the way
But it’s crazy how you land without a sound

And in my heart, I knew that I was lost
No breadcrumb trail for me to find my way
All alone out in the woods but far from helpless
Somehow I survived to see the day

     So demonize me, it takes two to tango
     When you’re listening to Django you can’t help but make mistakes
     Yeah demonize me, I was just as much at fault
     You bring the wound I’ll bring the salt, if that’s what it takes

     So demonize me, it takes two to tango
     When you’re listening to Django you can’t help but make mistakes
     Yeah demonize me, I was just as much at fault
     You bring the wound I’ll bring the salt, if that’s what it takes

     You bring the wound I’ll bring the salt, if that’s what it takes

Track 2. Enough

Deep down I don’t believe in this image that you see
Deep down I don’t believe that I’m enough
And everything I do for me for them for you
Yes everything I do I do for love

     But no matter what I do it’s not enough for you
     Never seems to be anything left for me

And I have had enough, no I am not so tough
Yes I have had enough and I am tired
And you can see right through, you’ve had a front row view
Yes you can see right through to my demise

     But no matter what I do it’s not enough for you
     Never seems to be anything left for me

And I should really go, find a way to just say no
Yes I should really go and get some sleep
And you could hold me close, while I’m resting in repose
Yes you could hold my close, my soul to keep.

Track 3. More

You’re my old, you’re my new
You’re my borrowed, you’re my blue
And when things fell apart
You stuck around, held onto my heart

            And I love you, much more than I knew
            And you love me, more than I thought I could be 
            I thank God you found me

You’re my heart, you’re my soul
You’re the part that makes us whole
You make me laugh, right out loud
You’re my beacon in the crowd

            And I love you, much more than I knew
            And you love me, more than I thought I could be 
            I thank God you found me

You’re my old, you’re my new
You’re my borrowed, you’re my blue
You make me laugh, right out loud
You’re my beacon in the crowd

            And I love you, much more than I knew
            And you love me, more than I thought I could be 
            I thank God, oh God I thank God, I thank God you found me

Track 4. Speaking Out

I shake my head and look away
You don’t hear a single word I say
No means no you can’t have it your way
No is not some little game I play

            Years of secrets, shame, and doubt
            I’m speaking out

I am not a piece of property
To be mistreated so recklessly
Keep your filthy hands off of me
Let me walk away, let me be

            Years of secrets, shame, and doubt
            I’m speaking out

Countless women from countless lives
Girlfriends, daughters, sisters, and wives
Thought that silence was our only choice
Now together, we’re finding a voice

            No more secrets, shame, and doubt
            We’re speaking out
            Speaking out
            Speaking out

Track 5. Keep Comin' Back
