Track Name: What You See
What You See – Katie Miller © 2016

You were the artist that had the vision
The inspiration to look beyond the wreckage
You saw the broken bits as beautiful
Every single jagged edge

Oh what you see, is everything, every little thing I need
It’s all I need to set me free.

You were the carpenter that had the plan
To restore what had been lost for far too long
You took the pieces that had all crumbled down
And you gave them hope

Oh what you see, is everything, every little thing I need
It’s all I need to set me free.

And you held up the mirror to my face
And you made me see what you see in me

Oh what you see, is everything, every little thing I need
It’s all I need to set me free.
Track Name: Sunset
Sunset - Katie Miller © 2016

He left me like a sunset on the prairie
A burning blaze of glory leaving me wanting more
He went without warning
I didn’t see it coming
Colors are fading, oh I’m feeling cold

I’m not gonna give up, that would be too easy
I’m not gonna try to, understand why

I will wait for the sun to rise again
I will wait for that glow to return
I will wait for the sun to rise above me

I’ll always remember that day in November
And holding it together at least on the outside
I’m still haunted by
That illuminated sky
It burns right through my eyes, oh it’s taking me down.

I’m not gonna give up, that would be too easy
I’m not gonna try to, understand why, so

I will wait for the sun to rise again
I will wait for that glow to return
I will wait for the sun to rise above me

People do change but old habits do remain
That can dig up the pain that’s been buried deep inside
I’ll keep on learning, I’ll keep on dreaming
I’ll keep on believing, that it’s all worth it

I’m not gonna give up, that would be too easy
I’m not gonna try to, understand why, so

I will wait for the sun to rise again
I will wait for that glow to return
I will wait for the sun to rise above me
Track Name: Secret Place
Secret Place – Katie Miller © 2016

Let’s find a secret place, let’s find a secret place
Where it’s just me and you, and the stars and the moon
Where the northern lights are dancing across the sky
Let’s find a secret place

Even if it’s only for a moment
All you have to do is look at me
And I will take you to a place where nothing will harm you
All you have to do is look at me

Let’s find a secret place, let’s find a secret place
Where it’s just you and me, and the sand and the sea
And the ocean waves are crashing upon the shore
Let’s find a secret place

Even if it’s only for a moment
All you have to do is look at me
And I will take you to a place where nothing will harm you
All you have to do is look at me

Let’s find a secret place, let’s find a secret place
Where we are understood by the rocks, by the woods
Where the mountain tops are reaching up to the sun
Let’s find a secret place
Let’s find a secret place
Let’s find a secret place
I will take you there, I will take you there
I will take you there, I will take you there

Even if it’s only for a moment
All you have to do is look at me
And I will take you to a place where nothing will harm you
All you have to do is look at me
Track Name: Butterflies
Butterflies – Katie Miller © 2016

Do you remember when I was lost
I didn't know which way to go
But then you found me, you took care
Of it all, nobody's fault

I was addicted to your hold
On my life, you were always so right
But there came a time when I started to see
Myself more clearly, a little more freely

And I knew there had to be more
Than butterflies in the jar

I feel like a child now, wide-eyed
Begging for more, hungry for more
But I'm not so innocent anymore
I confess I've met judas

And I knew there had to be more
Than butterflies in the jar

I've learned a new kind of attitude
Forget the rules, remember the fools
I know this does not follow your plan
Wake up and see, what you were doing to me

And I knew there had to be more
Than butterflies in the jar
Track Name: Flowers On The Sun
Flowers On The Sun – Katie Miller © 2016

Flowers on the sun
A new day has begun
What are you looking for
Beyond that golden door

It’s not hard to remember
The way things used to be
When we ran with the wolves at night
We were so young then

Flowers on the sun
A new day has begun
What are you looking for
Beyond that golden door

We build it up then tear it down
It’s the only way we know
The ravens cast their shadows on the ground
Watching silently

Flowers on the sun
A new day has begun
What are you looking for
Beyond that golden door

Take my hand & listen to the rain
Feel it on your skin
Can you hear the drummer beating in time

Flowers on the sun
A new day has begun
What are you looking for
Beyond that golden door

Come with me down the river tonight
Let it carry us away
Let it carry us along thru the morning
So we can see the sun rise
Flowers on the sun
A new day has begun
What are you looking for
Beyond that golden door
Track Name: Our Way
OUR WAY – Katie Miller © 2016

Time slips by
Leaving me breathless and I wonder why
So many roads to travel on
To those in question, I'll sing my song

We have waited out the storm for much too long
Now it's time to take that chance let's right our wrongs
There's no more looking back on yesterday
Now it's time to carry on let's find our way
Let’s find our way

Don't you worry, you will see
Just let your guard down and taste the mystery
Let the wind carry us through
With heads held high and nothing to prove

We have waited out the storm for much too long
Now it's time to take that chance let's right our wrongs
There's no more looking back on yesterday
Now it's time to carry on let's find our way
Let’s find our way

We came so close to losing it all
We took the heat, we took the fall
We have to make a choice
We have to give it a voice
That will echo in our souls.

Nonbelievers can't see
That only the truth shall set you free
Free from the past that tied us down
And breaking the chains that held us bound

We have waited out the storm for much too long
Now it's time to take that chance let's right our wrongs
There's no more looking back on yesterday
Now it's time to carry on let's find our way
Let’s find our way
Track Name: Dark Side
Dark Side – Katie Miller © 2016

He didn't know how good he had it
Always wanting a way out of it
He was a smart kid but too young to care
Tell him to jump and he would say how high
C'mon boy you can really fly
Come with us and we'll show you how it's done.

He followed them down not knowing what he'd find
Right out of the light he never looked behind.

The illusion was that everything had changed
That his life never would be the same
It was hard to tell in the state that he was in
Get me out of this town he cried
There's only one way out they replied
Come with us and we'll show you how it's done

He followed them down not knowing what he'd find
Right out of the light he never looked behind.

The dark side is his own little place
Where nobody has to look him in the face
A place where desperation is his comfort
He surrendered into his despair
He had no fear he let it take him there
The fateful hour had come and all was quiet

He followed them down not knowing what he'd find
Right out of the light he never looked behind.
Track Name: Oh Why
Oh Why – Katie Miller ©2016

Look at me, I’ve got it all
Look at me, tryin to keep it together
Look at me, letting it all slip away
Oh God look at me, look at me, look at me

Why can’t I see when its time, when its time to stop the lies
Why can’t I see what is real, what my life’s supposed to be
Oh why, oh why

I’m getting tired of walking the tight rope
I’m getting tired of running in circles
I’m getting tired of hitting the brick wall
I’m getting tired, getting tired, oh so tired

Why can’t I see when its time, when its time to stop the lies
Why can’t I see what is real, what my life’s supposed to be
Oh why, oh why

How much longer, how much longer

I don’t want to hit rock bottom again
I don’t want to go down that dark lonely road
I don’t want lose it all again
I don’t want to, I don’t want to, I don’t want to, I don’t want to
I don’t want to, I don’t want to, I don’t want to

Why can’t I see when its time, when its time to stop the lies
Why can’t I see what is real, what my life’s supposed to be
Oh why, oh why

Look at me, I’ve got it all
Track Name: Memories
Memories – Becky Marshall & Katie Miller ©2016

I remember your farm, that old lawn tractor
Carrying firewood in my arms and hearing your laughter
The smell of the kitchen and that old lego set
We were always itching to build something with it

And I know everyone has to go, eventually
But this is too soon, there is so much I didn’t say
I should have spent more time with you
I should have shared my dreams with you
I should have told you I loved you
And how much you meant to me
Cause now all I’ve got are memories

I remember the exhibition and Port George Beach
A house cleaned to perfection that dirty socks couldn’t breach
I remember that hay bale that we always tried to climb
We would fail, but we tried everytime

And I know everyone has to go, eventually
But this is too soon, there is so much I didn’t say
I should have spent more time with you
I should have shared my dreams with you
I should have told you I loved you
And how much you meant to me
Cause now all I’ve got are memories
Track Name: Escape Me
Escape Me – Katie Miller © 2016

Escape me
Hate me
For draining you
Of every ounce of energy

You can call me complicated
You can call me strange
I’ve got chapters of my
Flaws and faults to name
So please escape me

You’ll never change me
Or rearrange me
Into being someone
I don’t want to be

You can call me complicated
You can call me strange
I’ve got chapters of my
Flaws and faults to name
So please escape me

Hurt me
Subvert me
Dessert me
And leave me alone

You can call me complicated
Call me a tragedy
I’ve got chapters of my
Weaknesses you see
So please escape me
Track Name: This December
This December – Katie Miller © 2016

This December’s got me down
With the way the world’s been spinning
Out of control right before our very eyes
I’m havin a hard time holding on

This December’s got me bitter
With mankind falling down, and
Breaking to pieces that are scattered everywhere
Why do you look the other way

Oh, it’s up to you and me, can you see
Oh, take my hand and try to understand

This December’s got me hoping
For a little spark of light
To grow into a flame ignited by us all
Where we will stand as one
Oh let us stand as one

Oh, it’s up to you and me, can you see
Oh, take my hand and try to understand
Oh, it’s up to you and me, can you see
Oh, take my hand and try to understand

This December’s got me hoping
