Love's Not a Game Lyrics & Music by Madison Galloway My heart's not a chess piece So why don't you just let it be You play your rook, you play your knight Just tryna checkmate me Despite what they say Love's not a game So why don't you just quit Quit tryna play You're like the boy who cried wolf You say I love you Over and over and over 'n' over again But one day you're gunna find No one's gunna be there to believe you No one's gunna believe you It's a shame 'cause you're a A really great guy other than that So why don't you just change that one little fact Despite what they say Love's not a game So why don't you just quit Quit tryna play Quit tryna play, now Despite what they say Love's not a game Love's not a game So why don't you just quit Quit tryna play

Devil in Her Eye Lyrics & Music by Madison Galloway He had his eyes on her until she turned around Then he went back to find some other girl Well she sat there dreary-eyed 'til she dragged herself Right out of her mind With a knife in her pocket and a gun in her shoe She said "Oh dear, come near, you're gunna lose" With a knife in her pocket and a gun in her shoe She said "Oh dear, come near, you're gunna lose" She prowled the streets with the devil in her eye She screamed "You better run, you better run and hide!" She's the shadow behind every door, every corner And the nightmare of your mind With a knife in her pocket and a gun in her shoe She said "Oh dear, come near, you're gunna lose" With a knife in her pocket and a gun in her shoe She said "Oh dear, come near, you're gunna lose" With a knife in her pocket and a gun in her shoe She said "Oh dear, come near, you're gunna lose" With a knife in her pocket and a gun in her shoe She said "Oh dear, come near, you're gunna lose" Woah Oh Oh Oh Woah Oh Oh Oh Woah Oh Oh Oh Woah Oh Oh Oh Oh Woah Oh Oh Oh Woah Oh Oh Oh Woah Oh Oh Oh Woah

Moon & Mercury Lyrics & Music by Madison Galloway I'm trapped here with no escape Just wanna go back and see those familiar faces I feel so far away Like the moon and mercury Don't you fret and don't you frown I've got a plan and I'm comin' back down But I still feel so far away Like the moon and mercury Like the moon, like the moon Won't be long now till I, I see your face They think that's why I'm coming back But it's not necessarily the case I don't feel so far away now Like the moon and mercury Like the moon and mercury

Rose Coloured Glasses Lyrics & Music by Madison Galloway Yellow body reflects the sun Glowing in your green world You're a halcyon an abditory for all we cannot see A weed to most, but a flower to some, like me Sun slips away Sending shivers down your roots and below You don't turn your head down Just wait patiently for its return Oh, so patiently Walking 'round viewing the world through rose coloured glasses They say "what a shame" But what's the shame in seeing the beauty in all there is to see In this place we call home I wanna go home Your, your petals drop But you, you don't die Your soul still resides just taking on another life Walking 'round viewing the world through rose coloured glasses They say "what a shame" But what's the shame in seeing the beauty in all there is to see In this place we call home Walking 'round viewing the world through rose coloured glasses They say "what a shame" But what's the shame in seeing the beauty in all there is to see In this place we call home Wanna go home I wanna go home Wanna go home This is our home

Beginnings & Ends Lyrics & Music by Madison Galloway You gotta shed your skin All your scars, all the wounds from the rude remarks We were falling apart already This just had me confirmed That's the trouble That's the trouble You think you've got time That's the trouble That's the trouble You think you've got time I didn't say I didn't like Being by your side, quite the opposite in fact But every beginning has its end We just happened We just happened to come to ours That's the trouble That's the trouble You think you've got time That's the trouble That's the trouble You think you've got time Say what you want and Say what you mean It's not always easy It's not always easy Say what you want and Say what you mean If you don't You'll end up like me That's the trouble That's the trouble You think you've got time That's the trouble That's the trouble You think you've got time That's the trouble That's the trouble You think you've got time That's the trouble That's the trouble You think you've got time That's the trouble That's the trouble You think you've got time That's the trouble That's the trouble You think you've got time

Bye Bye 02:47
Bye Bye Lyrics & Music by Madison Galloway Hello lovely bees I know we're worried about that DDT, like Joni said But now we've got a new problem on our hands Thought we were moving forward But we're just moving back, back, back It's pretty clear that we cannot last Because if you go, then so do we We got to worry 'bout those birds and bees And all the pretty trees Oh, it's quite concerning me And if you go, then so do we We got to worry 'bout those birds and bees And all the butterflies All that's passing by in the skies And below, on the ground, all around And pretty soon they'll say, "Bye bye" Fifty-thousand dropping dead But the thought's just passin' above our heads Like clouds in the sky that roll on by Without a second glance They got those neo-nic seeds, coated in the palms of their hands Nothing's ever as it seems The world is not what it seems Hello lovely bees I know we're worried about that DDT But please don't fly away I promise we'll fix our ways If you go, then so do we We got to worry 'bout those birds and bees And all the pretty trees Oh it's quite concerning me If you go, then so do we We got to worry 'bout those birds and bees And all the butterflies All that's passing by in the skies And below, on the ground, all around And pretty soon they'll say, "Bye bye"

Doors 02:43
Doors Lyrics & Music by Madison Galloway Knock knock, baby don't come in You know you'll get lost from the dark within You know that you better leave a trail If you're thinking 'bout coming back home You picked the lock and you came on in Running in circles again and again Lookin' for an answer you don't wanna find Welcome to a place where the moon always shines And the planets are the keepers And the stars, they're the secrets of the dark Well now you're here and darlin' don’t be scared You know you walk these floors but the ghosts won't haunt you Anymore than they did before You stood behind that closed black door Spent some time in this cosmic life But you better leave while your mind's still free Sun ain't here to help you find your way Welcome to a place where the moon always shines And the planets are the keepers And the stars, they're the secrets of the dark Welcome to a place where the moon always shines And the planets are the keepers And the stars Welcome to a place where the moon always shines And the planets are the keepers And the stars, they're the secrets of the dark Welcome to a place where the moon always shines Planets are the keepers And the stars

Infectious Eyes Lyrics & Music by Madison Galloway Her infectious eyes create a disease taking over your mind She peers at you as if she can see right through your words, your life, and any lie You cannot hide, you cannot hide You cannot hide She's got you under her spell You fell like an apple from a tree And baby you know you can't be free from this captivating Oh, contagious love No, no no And my dear, it's set you free Her smile like poison in a pill Rushing through your veins trapped in your bloodstream Consumed I know, I know, I know You can't be freed, you can't be freed No, no no You can't be freed You can't be freed She's got you under her spell You fell like an apple from a tree And baby you know you can't be free from this captivating Oh, contagious love No, no no And my dear, it's set you free No no, it's set you free No, it's set you free

House of the Rising Sun There is a house in New Orleans They call the Rising Sun It's been the ruin of many a poor girl And God, I know I'm one My mother, she was a tailor She sewed my new blue jeans And my father was a gamblin' man Way down in New Orleans And the only thing that a gambler needs Is a suitcase and a trunk And the only time that he's satisfied Is when he's on a drunk Oh mothers, tell your children Not to do what I have done Live your life in sin and misery In the House of the Rising Sun Got one foot on the platform The other foot on the train I'm goin' back to New Orleans To wear that ball and chain
