about

For their invaluable help in this creative endeavor, Heather would like to heap gratitude upon:

Kai - without your love, support and madd skillz I may never have found the courage to do this.

My wonderful family from Delaware to China and back again, Mama and Patty, Dad and Gloria, my bandmates/best friends who taught me how to make music with joy and honesty, my roommates/soulmates who share my strange love for the cruelest cat on earth, the insanely talented musicians who shared their gifts with my me and made my music infinitely better, The Zierings, Ford & Marnie, Joe & Jennie, Gar, my team at PledgeMusic, the housemates at 1206 (sorry for the racket!) and my beautiful friends in NYC, Nashville, CA and beyond.

Also a very special thanks to my PledgeMusic Family:
The Boobergs, Sue & Bert Trucksess, The Facciolos, Paul & Pam Baumbach, Mary Wisniewski, The Weicheld Family, Kent & Donna Scarbrough, Aylee Welch, Phil, Mia & Sam Hanczaryk, Geoffrey Owens, The Crawfords, The Rater/Phelan Family, The Lienhard/Schweizer Family, and all of you who contributed to my campaign - I could not have done this without you!

Track Name: July
July
My My
You seem like you need a place
To lay your weary head
I offer you a blanket or two
And my body for a bed
You decline, you always do
And we live within the lines
But all I want is to say goodbye to you
A thousand times
And if we don't look too hard we can see the stars
If we don't look too hard we can both see the stars
In July
My My
We don't know what we want
And who knows what we need
But somewhere between dinner and dawn
We planted a seed
Let's stay here forever
We can't fail it we don't start
Just enjoy the hours
In the quiet
In the dark
The water is wild and churning with scorn
We dare not go in, we sit on the shore
And are we destroyed or are we reborn
Well, I've never been one without the other before
July
My My
Track Name: It Isn't Me
I don't know what you need
I don't know what you need
But I know it isn't me
I don't know who you see
I don't know who you see
But I know it isn't me
You say that lovin's easy
You say that lovin's easy
Well, tell that to me
Take one step closer
And tell that to me
Cause if this is easy than why
If this is easy than why
I've searched within, without, beyond
I've pushed away and I've held on
Waiting for an answer I could trust
You've held your breath, you've banged your head
You've put yourself through hell instead
Of seeing every hinge had gone to rust
Please don't ask me
Please don't ask me
Don't make me tell
Please don't ask me
Please don't ask me
Don't make me
Cause I don't know what you need
I don't know what you need
But I know it isn't me
I don't know who you see
I don't know who you see
But I know
It isn't me
Track Name: I Do Too
Wide awake, a wall away
As the light streams in from the dawn of another
Difficult day
I hear the sound of your feet on the ground
Your tires as you drive away
If you cut a rope, the end is gonna fray
It appears that I react in quite the same way
When I hear the sound of your feet on the ground
Your tires as you drive away
Doin fine, keepin busy but good
Juggling more than I probably should
But how are you
Me too
Me too
You too
I know
I do too
Once the cat is out
Does it miss the bag
Compared to dreams this old world can be kind of a drag
So I add a notch and I check my watch
But I don't mean to brag
If we say that the heart is a spade
Can we dig through this mess we've made
And make it true
-ch-
Wide awake, a lifetime away
As the light streams in from the dawn of another
Typical day
That distant sound is faded now
The pain is packed away
You rarely call
What is there to say
If we learned at all we know words don't do nothing anyway
That distant sound is faded now
The pain is packed away
In the knots down the length of my spine
It's the one part of you that's mine
But how are you
-ch-
Track Name: Lovely
The summer rain that falls is not the same one as the spring
But they both go from up to down
The winter wind that bites is not the same one autumn brings
But they'll both whip your hair around
Oh honey, you
You're a pile of presents I found on Christmas Day
And I don't know whether to laugh or pray
Tiny bows all in rows
Sometimes it's easier to hide
What if you don't want what's waiting inside
Oh honey, you
See through
All the things that always worked so well on the folks that came before you
I wanna be your version of me
But I'm afraid I just can't pass for half that lovely
Cleopatra and Madonna
Janis Joplin, Mary Poppins
Come and lay your head on my knee
I'm an actress, I'm a footrest
I am restless, but I digress
Tell me that what you want from me is me
Oh, to you
I'm shiny new
But I've seen the way that sheen rubs off on the folks that came before you
I wanna be your version of me
But I'm afraid I just can't pass for half that lovely
What if I let you down or what if you let me down
And oh, we all fall down
When will we come around and what if we know too late
How much longer can we wait to discover if this love will satiate
The hunger that we both recognize
We see it in each other's eyes
Two steps forward, three back
In our game of heart attack
But if only one can win, what use is a prize
Oh honey, you
Break through
All the walls that always held me back from the ones that came before you
I wanna be my version of me
So the wind can whip and blow
If it's stormy we won't know
Cause when you're lying next to me
The rain is lovely
Track Name: Without Sayin'
Does it go without sayin
Or does it need to be said
When you stumbled upon me
I was outta my head
A light in the night, your beacon burns bright
And no matter how far I may roam
Does it go without sayin
That you gave me a home
I try not to ramble
Say just what I mean
Did I happen to mention
That you tickle me pink
Yeah, you double me over
Without one single drink
A wink on the brink
And then just when I think
That I've seen every trick up your sleeve
Does it go without sayin
That you made me believe
I try not to ramble
Say just what I mean
Each word is a gamble
And a careless one could wipe a good love clean
Through the din of this crowd I can't say it out loud
So I'll whisper it right in your ear
Cause it goes without sayin
But it's still nice to hear
I try not to ramble
Say just what I mean
Each word is a gamble
And a careless one could wipe a good love clean
When you came along
Someone heard me prayin
So I hope you know
Though it might go without sayin
Track Name: Earth
Late at night when no one's awake
We sneak out and go to the lake
Every moment moves like a dream
Every touch is so extreme
We get so high
(You take me to the moon)
We fill the sky
But can we be on earth together
Like a story told in the stars
Every constellation is ours
We create a mural in space
Defying time and place
We fill the air
(You take me to the moon)
We could go anywhere
But can we be on earth together
Honey I love the moon
But I need gravity
To keep my head up and my feet down on the ground
I need gravity
To fill my hungry ear drums up with sound
When we're infinite there's no room in this galaxy for fear
But for the moment we're right here
So can we be on earth together
(Honey I love the moon)
(Can't you see me floating away)
(Don't just let me float away)
(Can't you tell I'm floating away)
(Don't just let me float away)
Track Name: Your Place or Mine
I wanna say before we get into our first fight
That I've dreamed about you almost every night
I wanna say before everything goes to hell
That it's been a long time since I felt quite so well
But oh, where can our love live
Darling where can our love live
By the sound of your voice on the other line
Neither one of us knows how to ask
Your place or mine
We're like two flights of stairs caught unawares
Yeah, we fell down one another
Now here we lay and here we'll stay
Cause we don't want to recover
But oh, darling where can this love live
Darling where can this good love live
By the sound of your voice on the other line
Neither one of us knows how to answer
Your place or mine
There's a ghost around every corner
Stories written in the sky
We need a new leaf to turn over
We need a lifetime to go by
Where can this love live
Darling where can our good love live
We keep looking for an answer
Waiting for a sign
But are we wasting precious time
I wanna say before we get into our first fight
That I've dreamed about you almost every night
