Lyrics : Leaving The White Line

Album: Leaving the White Line, 2007
Leaving the White Line
Music by Starr, Fanders, Christine & Hardy
Lyrics by Starr & Sund

for miles and miles I kept my eyes on the white line
for years and years I kept myself on the right side
like you I always had the right words to say
out there beyond the fog the shoulder drops away

leaving the white line
leaving the white line
leaving the white line
leaving the white line is the best thing I ever did

for miles and miles I kept my eyes on your white line
for hours and hours I drove to meet you beneath the pines
like you I always clung to the right way
out there beyond your shoulder the sun drops away

I didn’t mean to hurt you
no, I didn’t intend to upset you
but I think that you were searching
for something that I can no longer give
and I know that you were expecting
a life that I can no longer live

leaving the white line
leaving the white line
leaving the white line
leaving the white line is the best thing I ever did

Save Yourself
Music by Starr, Fanders, Christine & Hardy
Lyrics by Andi Starr

left my religion to look for me
and they laughed at me, they laughed at me
left  my religion to look for me
and they laughed at me, yeah, they laughed at me

learn to save yourself
cuz they don’t know how
they don’t know how

found some help they called the devil
and they prayed for me, they prayed for me
found some help they called the devil
and they prayed for me, yeah, they prayed for me

learn to save yourself
cuz they don’t know how
they don’t know how.
learn to save yourself
cuz they don’t know how
don’t know how

left my religion to look for me
and they laughed at me, they laughed at me
found some help they called the devil
and they prayed for me, they prayed for me
so I put down my bible and picked up some strings
and in the pain of the night
sang myself free, yeah, myself free, yeah

learn to save yourself
cuz they don’t know how,
yeah, they don’t know how
learn to save yourself
cuz they don’t know how
they don’t know how

free free free yourself…

Big Country (Open Spaces)
Music by Starr
Lyrics by Starr & Sund

stuck in traffic on a Tuesday morning
the radio is on and I’m thinking about what Henry said
near the strip mall and the service station
another day of quiet desperation.

I’m so damn tired of this
I’m so damn tired of this

sometimes the sprinkling of the rain
hurts more than the hurricane.
all these pretty lies like lullabies
why do all your hellos feel more like goodbyes?
why do all these hellos feel more like goodbyes?

forget the chocolates and the pretty vases
I want to drive for the open spaces
we’ll park our car out along the gorge and let
the rain fall on our faces, we’ll let the rain fall

on our faces
on our faces
on our faces

Martin Eden/Under the Lighthouse (Martin Eden & Big Wreck Cover)

Hold On
Music by Starr
Lyrics by Starr & Sund

take your shoes off
feel the warmth through the grass
clear path before you

hold your arms out
feel the wind through the trees
moving through you

lift up your dreams girl
to the sky
and when it all falls
keep on keeping on

hold on hold on girl

when the wolves come for you
don’t look back close your eyes
go inside hold on hold on

Beneath the Bridge 
Music by Starr
Lyrics by Starr & Sund

I saw Courtney Taylor beneath the bridge
walking hand in hand with a girl
I saw Courtney Taylor beneath the bridge
and wanted to ask: are you happy at last?

it’s all water beneath the bridge, yeah
it’s been difficult but that’s okay
maybe we can help each other through this
with our feelings we can help each other through this

I saw them walking beneath the bridge
hand in hand with cars overhead
and trucks and vans
I saw them there beneath the clouds
and birds and sky, don’t ask me why

it’s all water beneath the bridge, yeah
it’s been difficult but that’s okay
maybe we can help each other through this
with our feelings we can help each other through this

hi there coins for eyes, hi there
sweetest kiss, sweetest face, you’re pretty nice
hi there mister blue, mister dandy
how are you after all the hype and flash?

after all the razors and dollar bills,
after all the raised faces and happy pills
after all the razors and dollar bills,
after all the raised faces and happy pills

Real Love, Baby
Music & lyrics by Andi Starr 

this ain’t no sappy love, no
this ain’t no rubby dub dub
this ain’t no Hollywood fling, no
this ain’t no ringy ding thing

it’s real love baby, real love

you and me romancing
with wine and slow dancing
until the night is no more, no more
we are no more, no more
(one, two, three, four)

this ain’t no sappy love, no
this ain’t no rubby dub dub
this ain’t no Hollywood fling, no
this ain’t no ringy ding thing

it’s real love baby, real love

Driving for the Sun
Music by Starr, Fanders, Christine, Hardy & Hall
Lyrics by Sund

My dear brother, I’m leaving town today,
wish it didn’t have to be. In another life
we could have made something, you and me.

My dear brother, I’m so sad for what was
and what could have been. Take care, okay,
and don’t worry about me. I may be crying,
but my baby is here to remind me, singing:

Leaving all our troubles behind us love,
we’re leaving all our troubles behind.
That old striving has no meaning when we’re
driving for the sun, driving for the sun.

My dear brother, why all these celebrated
stories of mediocrity? Should I be thankful
for the selfish notion of generosity?

My dear brother, I’m so sad for what was
and what could have been. Take care, okay,
and don’t worry about me. I may be crying,
but my baby is here to remind me, singing:

Leaving all our troubles behind us love,
we’re leaving all our troubles behind.
That old striving has no meaning when we’re
driving for the sun, driving for the sun.

Driving for the sun, driving for the sun,
driving for the sun, driving for the sun.

Big Country (Little Town)
Music by Starr
Lyrics by Starr & Sund

I want to feel alive again,
I want to know who I am,

I want to be driving through big country
with you, with you, with you.

Sometimes the sprinkling of the rain
hurts more than the hurricane.

All these little lies, these lullabies—
why do all your hellos
feel more like goodbyes?

This town has lost its way.

Running to Stand Still (U2 Cover) 

You Will See
Music by Starr
Lyrics by Sund

Why does all the beauty in this season
mean that summer is almost through?

Why does every good thing
have to come with darkness too?

I miss you.
Yeah, I miss you.

But I can’t stay, no,
I can’t stay behind;
there is a world
out there waiting.
It’s beckoning me to fly.

You will see.
You will see.

I am gaining my wings,
I am gaining my eyes.

I am gaining my wings,
I am gaining my eyes.

You will see.
You will see.
You will see.
You will see.
