about

Kayla Stewart University Place, Washington

I play the guitar. And occasionally the foot tambo(tambourine). And I sing. And sometimes I do all of those things at the same time.

Track Name: Have To Ask
So there is she is again
Going round and round
There she is again
Falling down
Face first
In the dirt
Tears fall
On her shirt

She doesn't know where to go
Got kicked out all alone
She goes around
All over town
Like lost and found
At a friend's house

And if you wanted something
All you'd do is have to ask
Have to ask
And if you wanted something
All you do is have to ask
Have to ask

She doesn't know who to trust
We always thought it would be us
But all along
We were wrong
She fed us lies
So she could survive

And if you wanted something
All you'd do is have to ask
Have to ask
And if you wanted something
All you do is have to ask
Have to ask

I know it's a hard decision
To make on your own

I know it's a hard decision
But you don't have to be alone

And if you wanted something
All you'd do is have to ask
Have to ask
And if you wanted something
All you do is have to ask
Have to ask
Track Name: Too Late
Turn around
Look at me now
You knew this wouldn't be easy
But don't you dare lie to me

I guess it's too late for that
I guess its too late for that
So much for being friends
I guess it's too late for that

Caught up
Dreams dust
Who knew I was so easy to forget
I thought we were both better than this

I guess it's too late for that
I guess it's too late for that
So much for being friends
I guess it's too late for that

So focused on our incongruencies
You couldn't see past the little things
All the best memories
I wanted to give you everything

I guess it's too late for that
I guess its too late for that
So much for being my friend
It's too late for that
Track Name: Speak Out To Me
Speak out to me
Like no one is listening, but me
Speak out to me
And tell me everything, please, please

Don't worry
Don't worry
I will protect you
I will protect you

Don't worry
Don't worry
I will protect you
I will protect you
Track Name: A Start
No one knows what I've been through
No one knows except for you
And for that I'm thankful
And for that I'm faithful

I'll talk to my ceiling for days
It's the only way
I know to reach you
I know you know you know

I don't know who you are
But at least I'm thinkin'
Now don't you think
That's a start?

I remember when you'd watch over me
As I went to sleep
I didn't know what to think then
But now I know you were protecting me

Keeping the beat in my heart
Wiping the tears as soon as they started
Clearing evil from my thoughts
Forging new paths for me when I felt completely lost

I don't know who you are
But at least I'm thinkin'
Now don't you think
That's a start?

Now don't you think
That's a start?
Track Name: As One
The cabin is cold
And it's dark outside
But the stove is hot
And it's keeping us alive

But that's not it
There's something else
Between us
And what we tell ourselves

You could have left long ago
You could have gone off on your own
But times are tough so we're relying on each other to fight against the storm, as one, as one

It's too late
To ask how we got here
We have to focus
On dismantling our fears

Time is fleeting
For the chance that that we'll wake, safe
There's so much more, so much more at stake

You could have left long ago
You could have gone off on your own
But times are tough so we're relying on each other to fight against the storm, as one, as one

We're not yet in the clear
But there's a change in the air
Did you see the sun, shining through the trees
I see it, I saw it, I drop to my knees

You could have left long ago
You could have gone off on your own
But times are tough so we're relying on each other to fight against the storm, as one, as one
Track Name: Battle Begun
With your back against mine
I could feel the shivers running down our spines
You told me this was done
So tell me why you reached for your gun

If it's me that you want
Then get rid of the rest
They didn't do anything wrong
No one should bear witness to this

The battle has begun
Counting down three, two, one
The battle has, it has, begun

How can I say it to your face
When you're ten paces away
I saw your lips stir and your body sway
But the wind carries your words away

Never thought I'd have the chance
And I guess it's too late
To ask you why you stayed
When you didn't even want to be here anyway

The battle has begun
Counting down three, two, one
The battle has, it has, begun
Track Name: Currents
Cut loose
Floating free
Washed up in the sand
Epitome of beauty

Brought by the waves
From a distant place
There's no way to know
Where you've been and where you'll go

Rough edges
Cloudy skin
You earned these marks
A testament of your tumblin'

Brought by the waves
From a distant place
There's no way to know
Where you've been and where you'll go

Where will you go(x4)

Brought by the waves
From a distant place
There's no way to know
Where you've been and where you'll go
Track Name: Something To Prove
I see you doin’ things now
That you never would have done, before
Me, I’m gone and with nowhere else to run
You’re lookin’ for support
Drinks and drugs may seem fun
But they’ll leave you on the floor
I know you wanna be a rockstar
But I think you’re even hotter when you’re sober

You got somethin’ to prove
Don’t you, don’t you
You got somethin’ to prove
Don’t you, don’t you

Caught up in hearsay I wanna hear what you have to say
But all I get it static
Predictable in nature it’s as if you’re programmed
And set to automatic
Choices scare you
So you stick to what you know
It’s part of why you’re there and I’m here
And why I’ve got more places I need to go

You got somethin’ to prove
Don’t you, don’t you
You got somethin’ to prove
Don’t you, don’t you

Would you ever guess
Would you ever guess
That I like you best
When you’re true
Would you ever guess
Would you ever guess
That I like you best
When you’re you

You got somethin’ to prove
Don’t you, don’t you
You got somethin’ to prove
Don’t you, don’t you
You got somethin’ to prove
Don’t you, don’t you
You got somethin’ to prove
Don’t you, don’t you
Don’t you
Track Name: Nothing To Lose
Is this a game or is this real
From day to day my emotions change and I'm trying to feel
So can you tell me what's the deal
Is this a game or is this real

Don't want to look like a fool
Don't wanna get my jagged knuckles bruised
Especially by someone like you
But the devil on my shoulder tells me to

'Cause I've got nothin' to lose
I've got nothin' to lose
I've got nothin' to lose
I've got nothin' to lose

Trying my best to keep it all in check
Pain will be easier to deflect
If nothing ever becomes of this
I won't know any better, I'll have nothing to miss

What am I supposed to do
When I can no longer bear the truth
That I can't put no trust in you
Guess it's time to move on to someone new

'Cause I've got nothin' to lose
I've got nothin' to lose
I've got nothin' to lose
I've got nothin' to lose

But you
But you
But you
But you

So I've got nothin' to lose
I've got nothin' to lose
I've got nothin' to lose
I've got nothin' to lose
Track Name: Like Ivy
Walking past ivy covered concrete
Your face framed in the door and my knees they get so weak
I've been here a million times before but it never gets old
When your eyes light up as you open that apartment door

I come up to meet you
I come up to see you
I come up to meet you
I come up to see you

And once we're inside the whole world fades to noiseless grey
Being in your arms and there's really nothing I can say but
I think I might be the luckiest girl in this whole town
No reason to ponder the ways you will eventually let me down

I come up to meet you
I come up to see you
I come up to meet you
I come up to see you

When is the right time to tell you I can't do this anymore
When is the right time to tell you that you are not the one I want
When is the right time to tell you I can't do this anymore
When is the right time to tell you you are not what I thought

I come up to meet you
I come up to see you
I come up to meet you
I come up to see you

Walking past ivy covered concrete
Your face framed in the door and my knees they get so weak
Track Name: Ask Me Out
You must have really lost your mind
If you really think I'm gonna let you out of my sight
Baby we got all night
Gonna keep my eyes pried, wide

When you smile the skin on your cheeks
Stretches thin, rosy and pink
Crushes, yeah, I've had a few
But no one will ever measure up to you

I want you to ask, me out
You and me, goin' steady, how about
You ask, you ask me out
My love don't come easy, but I'd say yes without a doubt
Without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt

House show, you sat on the floor next to me
Even when there were plenty of other seats
Accidentally hit my leg
I'm sorry, your sorry meant nothing, it wasn't a mistake

I know it's rude of me to ask
But I gotta know, are you bald under that hat?
If you are it's okay
I'm too busy staring, and thinkin', I just wanna kiss your face

I want you to ask, me out
You and me, goin' steady, how about
You ask, you ask me out
My love don't come easy, but I'd say yes without a doubt
Without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt
Track Name: Catch 22
Well I was young and dumb and I didn’t know what
Was headed for me
I thought that it was love
But I was wrong, yes obviously
You and I were just never meant to be

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahhhhhh
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahhhhhh

You know what they say, timing’s everything
Now more than I ever, trust me, I believe
The good and the bad, hey, I’ll take it all
Nobody’s perfect, it’s okay to fall

(Instrumental)

Was that you in the park laying under the tree
I swear I saw you
Walkin’ down the street
You’re everywhere, I don’t want you to be
I think my mind’s playin’ some tricks on me

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahhhhhh
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahhhhhh

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahhhhhh
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahhhhhh
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahhhhhh
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahhhhhh
Track Name: Runner Up
I'm tired of being your runner up
Don't wanna think about if I stack up
I'm tired of being your runner up
Don't wanna think about how I stack up

Am I your second best
Am I your second best

You know I'm not even jealous
Actually I'm hurt
You know I'm not even jealous
Still I feel like dirt

There was a time when we fit
But it wasn't like this
There was a time when we fit
But you weren't like this

And it bums me out
Yeah, you bum me out

You know I'm not even jealous
Actually I'm hurt
You know I'm not even jealous
Still I feel like dirt

Kick me up and sweep me out like you don't even want me around
Kick me up and sweep me out like you don't even want me around
Kick me up and sweep me out like you don't even want me around
Kick me up and sweep me out like you don't even want me around

You know I'm not even jealous
Actually I'm hurt
You know I'm not even jealous
Still I feel like dirt

You know I'm not even jealous
Actually I'm hurt
You know I'm not even jealous
Still I feel like dirt

Am I your second best
Am I your second best
Track Name: Steer Clear
The year is done it's time to start again
Fire in the sky, burning, memories fading
The air is fresh my blood is red, crimson red
Rejuvenated, refreshed, I can feel it

This is going to be my year
No longer a victim of fear
No longer the girl I was last year
So much more coming, coming, so steer clear

Barely begun and the world's weighing down on me
Wiser now but still naïve to believe in ease
Turns out my slate it ain't so clean
Skeletons in my closet, they could tell you things you wouldn't believe

But...

This is going to be my year
No longer a victim of fear
No longer the girl I was last year
So much more coming, coming, so steer clear

If you thought I was focused before
Just wait until I show up at your door
If you thought I was on point before
Just wait until I step right through your door

This is going to be my year
No longer a victim of fear
No longer the girl I was last year
So much more coming, coming, so steer clear
