Love Lover 02:44
I'm no longer angry I'm no longer sad I'm no longer sitting 'round feeling sorry for myself I'm glad to have the chance To tell the world just what your love has done And why I feel so differently It's 'cause your love has made a love lover out of me I'm no longer crying How could I be mad When I've finally found someone who has canceled any doubt I've had about the way I feel What was before I fear no more And I welcome what will be Now that your love has made a love lover out of me And I was never the one in a party of two No I was never a fan of the positive view And I never thought love would set me free Until your love made a love lover out of me Undivided understanding That's the way it should be Uncommitted, undecided No, there's no guarantee But my love has been waiting way too long To waste time with uncertainty And I was never the one in a party of two No I was never a fan of the positive view And I never thought love would set me free Until your love made a love lover out of me ©jodiarlynsongs

All the stuff I saved up then gave up for good To be what you wanted I have come to take back and make back my own To get back where I started And on my rainy days I'm finding different ways To use up what I've saved Needless to say, the doors are wide open Needless to say, I've stepped outside Needless to say, it's more or less true I need more of me, I need less of you All that stuff you told me that sold me on you I've come to return it 'Cause it was useless, through the true test of time I can't believe that I bought it You almost had me fooled Disguising your bad moods But they were too true to be good Needless to say, you're a mindless distraction Needless to say, I've got less on my mind Needless to say, it's more or less true I need more of me, I need less of you Not a lot left to discuss About what we've become because It should be obvious Needless to say, I'm doing less damage Needless to say, I'm getting more done Needless to say, it's more or less true I need more of me, I need less of you ©jodiarlynsongs

See Love (free) 03:40
Said those words In what was once a foreign tongue to me But now I see love And say love I love you Wear your fingerprints Like armor against the enemy Who cannot see love Can't say love I love you You bring order to my chaos With a thousand, thoughtful things You find our corner inside circles You put air under my feet That's how I see love I see love everywhere Chased my ideal down And I finally found someone who simply Lets me see love And say love I love you Under open sky Every space that's in between That's where I see love And say love I love you Oh and when the camera finds us And we smile into the lens We'll make our old photos jealous As we burst out through the frame That's how I see love I see love everywhere You bring order to my chaos With a thousand, thoughtful things You find our corner inside circles You put air under my feet That's how I see love I see love everywhere ©jodiarlynsongs

Now 02:15
So this This is what it is now We are breathing on our own now The deepest breath, exhale regret Yet the air is thinner at the end now So this This is what you want now You are moving on your own now Strings untied, life undefined Determined to return to simple ways now Now comes the dark and the light My tumble down a gradual decline Bring me a quieted mind now So this This is who we are now We are walking on our own now Streets are paved, we know our way But I think I'll take a different road now ©jodiarlynsongs

Pay your respect to the trade off Regrets are unwelcome Leave it behind You will find you won't miss where you don't go Say goodbye to what you know Say goodbye fourteen below Say goodbye to downtown view Say goodbye, Goodbye Seventh Avenue Keep it alive Go outside there's a remedy waiting A simple solution will prove to be validating Say goodbye to what you know Say goodbye, it's time to go Say goodbye to downtown view Say goodbye, Goodbye Seventh Avenue Say goodbye, Goodbye Seventh Avenue ©jodiarlynsongs

Only Tuesday 02:44
Baby You said you'd be back by the weekend I'm keeping busy, but it's hard to wait another day for you And it's only Tuesday Endure the meantime and the malaise Staying up all night blurs the waking hours as I count down to you Patience promises such great return But we've learned promises break And it's only Tuesday Baby You said there'd never be a delay I'm keeping busy, but it's hard to wait another day for you ©jodiarlynsongs

Tonight 03:09
Sweet humidity Curl my toes and hair Curling my toes and hair Sweet sincerity Unsettling surprise Slide over to me dear I see stars up on the ceiling Faith is restored to sleepy eyes Light in my head Light in my step tonight Tonight Breathe serenity Calm my nervous heart Calming my nervous heart Breathe in symmetry Perfect by design Finding the missing part Now I see stars up on the ceiling Faith is restored to sleepy eyes I'm out of my head It's out of my hands tonight Tonight I gave into the thought of you In spite of what I thought I'd do Will you follow through tonight Now I see stars up on the ceiling Faith is restored to sleepy eyes Light in my head Light in my step tonight I'm out of my head It's out of my hands Tonight ©jodiarlynsongs

Us Apart 03:39
It's not what you are It's what I wanted you to be Your sweetness and your charm Just a figment of imaginary It was just enough to tempt me But not enough to sell me It wasn't what you said It was what I thought I heard So distracted by sound of each melodious phrase that you turned It was just enough to tempt me But not enough to sell me And it pulled us apart We're like a chocolate caramel heart Broken on the inside Watch how the outside melts It isn't what you've done It's what I hoped that you would do But my hopes were so easily dashed I knew you'd never see it through And it was not enough to tempt me And not enough to sell me And it keeps us apart Best to end it before it can start Harden up the outside Wait for the next time... ©jodiarlynsongs
