Track Name: Dangerous
Dangerous
words and music by Kristen Cothron

It’s the perfect alibi
But then I wouldn’t be a story teller if I couldn’t tell a lie
Playing a second act speech to a third act curtain
But I’m always in character that’s for certain

Chorus:
Dangerous, dangerous
Rest in peace is for tombstones
Dangerous, dangerous
Desire is for the living
And I want something to obtain, I want something to live up to
But it’s dangerous

Tomorrow is where my regrets lie
But there’ll be no tomorrow, for I have only tonight
I know forever ends at dawn
And by morning one of us will be gone

Chorus

Bridge:
Well you can laugh it off or work it out
You can live it up or live it down
You can eat your words or speak your mind
But in the end it’s your dime

Well a bad woman’s got something that a good woman ain’t
And a good woman’s scared of what she may find in herself
And I’m aware that I’m Dangerous

Chorus
Track Name: Love Letters from a Fool
Love Letters from a Fool
words and music by Kristen Cothron

I write lonely letters to a man with no face
He writes back faintly flattered saying : "Thanks for knowing my name"
But it was overdue

I sing songs of longing to a mysterious boy
He sends words of wisdom
If only I could employ

CHORUS:
Oh, my love, what webs we weave
I would have been ever yours truly
Oh, my darling, you spoke too soon
Now if you want me you can find me in these Love Letters from a Fool

Words often hinder what the soul wants to spill
My heart it pour onto pages that these words just won't fill
But it's always been true

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Love yours truly let me drift away, drift away
What foolish things have I managed to say?
I love you truly I must- drift away

I read lonely letters from man with no shame
And I must respond faintly flattered saying : "Thanks for knowing my name"
But it's always been you

CHORUS
Track Name: RSVP
RSVP
words and music by Kristen Cothron and Sebastian Fite

Send my excuses and send my regards
I wish you the best from the bottom of my heart
It's been broken since I heard the news
That you've found a new love, you're saying your 'I do's'

And I wish somehow I could figure
How I let you slip through my fingers

And all though you're gone love lingers, love lingers on...

Send my excuses and send my regrets
Although I can't be there
I give you my best wishes
For your happiness...

With envious eyes, I RSVP
Suddenly rushed by memories of you and me

And I wish somehow I could figure
How I let you slip through my fingers

And all though you're gone love lingers, love lingers on...
