Track Name: MGD (rachel ries)
mgd

i turned to speak but you were gone
capped up in a spiralsong
curling through, on into blue
leaving me to wonder

whatever happend to his old guitar?
left out in your mom’s backyard
i never knew a stranger tune
come speak if you surrender

to this lazy little girl you know i am
thinking how you done me wrong before you have
to this lazy little girl you know i am
thinking how you done me wrong before you have
thinking how you done me wrong before you have

ever gotten back to what you lost?
junior year in the first hard frost
when you learned to smoke and sympathize
with girls too much your senior

in the mornings i’m colder now
did you wanna know any of this, anyhow?
well i suppose not and i suppose that’s all
come speak if you’ll surrender

to this crazy little girl you know i am
wishing on the moon that’s gotten to the head
of this crazy little girl you know i am
wishing on the moon that’s gotten to the head
wishing on the moon that’s gotten to my head

mgd & mountain dew is all i can do
cigarettes & tennishoes
your button-up filled me up
with a taste for you
a taste for you...
so i’ll raise you love
and let it go at this -
frayed edges and the pages bent
Track Name: Grace the Day (rachel ries)
Grace the Day

I'm gray as the day you left this town
to find another way, another way to grace the day
The sun forgets that the light has gone
so she rises anyway and shines the empty halls

Something's not right when your boots aren't by the door
when I never hear your voice anymore
but what can you do
when someone you love has goneto find another way
another way to grace the day

Well I'm still making too much coffee everyday
I am terrible at learning how to drink alone
And it's too quiet in the halls of fallen hearts
so I go drive the streets you turned down

Something's not right when your boots aren't by the door
when I never hear your voice anymore
but what can you do
when someone you love has goneto find another way
another way to grace the day

I can't say that I'm sorry
cos it's how it had to be
for you to be happy
I can't say that I'm sorry
cos from what I hear
you're finally happy

So all I can do now that you have gone
well I'll just find another way
another way to grace the day
