Little Miss Chatterbox The world’s not out to get you You’re gonna be alright I really think you might You let me win in chess Cause you know it means nothing The world is a mess And you feel no need to impress You decorate your house with books Plants, lights and notebooks A Sanctuary for the soul It helps the heart feel whole You open up to me There’s a troubled history I listen patiently To the one that needs to breath Little Miss Chatterbox I’m happy to be with you To listen to your ways To have some brighter days Little Miss Chatterbox The world’s not out to get you You’re gonna be alright I really think you might

Mean people, busy streets Competitions, bare feet Forest fires, new hires Falling trees, always busy The suburbs made us crazy They never could foresee That raising children in such a quiet place Would only launch them further into space Making friends with ourselves Feeling weird, needing help Riding bikes, eating salads Summer nights, writing ballads The suburbs made us crazy We never could foresee That growing up in such a quiet place Would only launch us further into space

We live among the tress And that is all we need Nothing else to bring We have it all We’re free Every day is the same We go to work and play The game that we made We call it Live for today Love was built right here Right here before your time Was near the house we built With stone so our aching bones could Live among the peace That is all we need Nothing else to be We have it all We’re free We live among the trees The stable family Providing love and care To those who breathe Latvian air

There’s a point to your concern When all the lights outside your window Become a blur Your father was raised In the darkest days And we know the weight of that world Directly runs in the family You used to say things will be okay But that’s not the point anymore There’s more to this war You breathe empathy And cancelled your dreams And fought against the scene Unaware that you wrote a story Disagreements feel so significant In the heat of the moment I am reminded Every time the tides would rise And overflow their banks Your love always finds a way
6.
Vacuuming up the sparks As they come into your life And you’re telling me There’s no need to worry Swimming through your problems Like a small baby turtle Pretending everything is fine Cause you’re so immortal You’ll never feel alone As I do But you’ll probably never know The truth I see in you It’s perfectly construed I will go my own way And you can do the same But you’re an actress Playing the lead in this play And I will gladly blend in To the background out of frame While you continue To dominate the game The sweetest voice That calms all the pain Is the one that you Installed inside my brain If only it was real The heart, my dear Without fear You will steal it by ear

We met a few months ago And I’m still used to being alone It’s nothing to do with the way that you Behave I’ve got work to do It’s not that I don’t love you I just struggle to feel The things I’ve been through Is a numbing ordeal If you find that offensive I will understand If I get defensive I’ve done everything I can I desire your touch And you mean so much I can’t get enough of you But now I see a little more clearly I don’t fit on the page you read It’s not that I don’t love you I just struggle to feel The things I’ve been through Is a numbing ordeal If you find that excessive I will understand If I’m over-expressive You’ve seen enough of who I am

When the world is overwhelming Your mind won’t stop spinning You feel no one else understands you But you must remember You are worth it Clouds will persists into your mist And the rain will fall But not only over you It will reach us all But you are worth it No matter how sad you start to feel You are not alone We all feel this from time to time In the cycle of life You are worth it This is your only life and chance You are beautiful Much like the leaves in all the plants They will all renew Feelings too And you are worth it

I wish I was better at basketball And I wish I could start conversations at all Without being so anxious And I wish I was better being a good friend And I wish the nights in the summer would never end Until then at least we can pretend There’s always time to spend On the things that we really need to fix But why does it feel so nice to pretend That our problems don’t exist They don’t exist They don’t exist They don’t exist I wish I was better at living it up And I wish I was better at feeling Like an emotionally stable grown-up And I wish that I wasn’t always Stuck in the future And I wish that I didn’t immediately Turn everything that I see Into dark humor There’s always time to spend On the things that we really need to fix But why does it feel so nice to pretend That our problems don’t exist They don’t exist They don’t exist They don’t exist I wish I was better at expressing myself And I wish that I could see the way That you see the world and the way That you see yourself And I wish I was better at being the example That I needed and would have appreciated When I was younger and much more able There’s always time to spend On the things that we really need to fix But why does it feel so nice to pretend That our problems don’t exist They don’t exist They don’t exist They don’t exist

The universe is testing your strength While you count down the days Till the moon shines bright enough To begin your new journey Centuries ago Our ancestor’s home Was taken away for good And they did everything they could To provide you a future One with dreams to speak reverently With planets, stars and the moon Whenever you feel alone They’ll sit right there with you Some may say they think you’re insane They’ll question your point of view And it’s all part of the same truth That we tell ourselves daily Even though you study alone And strive to connect the dots The answer you get tells you To untie the knots The universe is testing your strength And you want it this way Cause the moon will come back around And give you a new day
