Tears 03:41
Nothing to give you but my love and my tears Don’t know what to say you’ve been my rock all these years You won’t live like this it’s not a life at all Been hard to hear you not the same when I call Why can’t I make you better? Why can’t I make you okay? Oh how I wish I could Why can’t I make you better? Why can’t I make you believe? But I’m just not that naïve And I’ve always been the one Who smiles for you But I didn’t come today To bring you good news My love is all I can offer you Nothing to give you but a hand to hold you Sing you to sleep the way that you’d always do I’ll hold you tight and just let myself cry Can’t bare to think how this could be our good-by Why can’t I make you better? Why can’t I make you okay? Oh how I wish I could Why can’t I make you better? Why can’t I make you believe? But I’m just not that naïve And I’ve always been the one Who smiles for you But I didn’t come today To bring you good news My love is all I can offer you All Music and Lyrics by Joy Autumn Copyright © 2010

Back Off 02:03
Told you back then I’ll tell you again That we will never be more than friends Happy with him so you're not gonna win Just back off its time you gave in Really don’t want to make a big deal You don’t care what I feel I told you time and time again Don’t come back you are no friend Should have thought twice before acting so nice Wish I had taken all their advice They had warned me and now I can see Why no one could stand you but me Really don’t want to make a big deal You don’t care what I feel I told you time and time again Don’t come back you are no friend Saw me with him from the start Tried to tear us apart To think that you could just jump in And surely win When you knew I love him Really don’t want to make a big deal You don’t care what I feel I told you time and time again Don’t come back you are no friend All Music and Lyrics by Joy Autumn Copyright © 2010

Numb 02:38
I’m numb I’m frozen I’m deadened by your touch Be careful Little boy You love me too much You’re beautiful You’re gullible You’re fragile As porcelain And I’ve used you And I’ve trapped you In a game you’ll never win You’re just a boy Painting all day You think if you keep working Then you’ll be an artist one day You think on top that sugar cube mountain There will be sun and bright blue sky Cuz beautiful boy you don’t know what it’s like To wake and see it’s all a lie Believe me boy I am not what I seam Trust me I’m warning you steer clear of me You’re gonna bleed it will hurt so bad That you will understand me Then you’ll be numb Frozen Deadened by my touch Cuz little boy That’s what happens When you love someone too much All Music and Lyrics by Joy Autumn Copyright © 2010

Cobble Stone 02:48
I’m standing right on that street I’m shaking I can’t feel my feet Never thought I’d be here again Not after what happened then Probably you wouldn’t say hi Probably you’d keep walking by And after all, I know you’ve been through How could I ever blame you I know you get what you earn But everyday how it burns Knowing your gone there’s nothing to do I’ve lost it all I’ve lost you On my mind everyday What good’s it do anyway? You make your bed and you lay there right can I just move on with my life Start heading home in a daze I shouldn’t have come back to this place Wanted to see you there again I know that this is the end All Music and Lyrics by Joy Autumn Copyright © 2010

about

'Scarlett' is dedicated in memory of my Grandma Dorris who was my musical inspiration and biggest cheerleader. While I was recording ‘Scarlett’, I would come and visit her weekly and tell her about the songs I was working on and she always encouraged me, even when I lost my voice and it felt like the album would never get finished! She was my rock, she was the reason I became a musician, and this album is a tribute to her. I love you Grandma.
