Track Name: Looking For A Palm Tree
Looking for a Palm Tree
Copyright 2014 Words and Music by Diana Rasmussen
Mixed/Mastered by Peter Schwepker


Submerged in a corner of time
drowning under his tidal waves of lies
Just another driftwood casualty floating by


Choosing to believe in love
Looking for a palm tree, In a concrete jungle
I'm looking for a palm tree, In a concrete jungle


life's full of possibilities
so many alternate realities
True Love is hard to find on the beach of abnormality


Make my fantasies reality


Choosing to believe in love
Looking for a palm tree, In a concrete jungle
I'm looking for a palm tree, In a concrete jungle

There's gotta be a palm tree, in this concrete jungle
There's gotta be a palm tree, in this concrete jungle.
Track Name: HeartStrings (Feat. Cyndi Corkran)
HEARTSTRINGS
Copyright 2014 Diana Rasmussen and Cyndi Corkran

I miss you like
The stars miss the sun
Walk down memory lane
I know I'll run
Into you there

I hear your voice
Echoing my name
I wander in the wind
And wonder if you're still the same
I come undone
I come undone
Your Heartstrings capture me

Smell the sea, feel the sun
See the stars touch the night
Your Heartstrings capture me
Oh I come undone
I come undone

Break

Linger longer
Rearrange my mind
Please make room for you to stay
As the days slip so quietly away
I come undone
I come undone

I hear your voice
Echoing my name
I wander in the wind
And wonder if you are still the same
Your Heartstrings capture me
I come undone
I come undone

Break

Peace waves
Hope stays
Love lives forever
Love lives forever
Love lives forever

Timbre Design,Engineering and Produced by Nathaniel Jones of Protilius Productions

"Raindrops fall from the sky because the clouds can no longer hold them"


There are tears my heart can't hold
falling down soaking the ground

Water from my soul releasing pain
It's our cry to begin again

You wept when I wept
You cried when I cried

From a secret place I see your face
Your raindrops are tears
Sent from above pouring out love
Your raindrops are tears

Drench my hurt heal my pain
You can call me by a new name

Soak the trees, heal all things
that are precious to a King

From a secret place I see your face
Your raindrops are tears
Sent from above pouring out love
Your raindrops are tears

You wept when I wept
You cried when I cried

From a secret place I see your face
Your raindrops are tears
Sent from above pouring out love
Your raindrops are tears

Mixed/Mastered by Peter Schwepker

Her sweater is as gray as the day
Says she's looking for another way
stands beside me with open hands
A torn tattered life hanging on to

Shoelaces of Grace
Her Hope is reborn with
Shoelaces of Grace
She's walking forward with

Crumpled kleenex to catch her tears
Clinging to Him with just a wing and a prayer
Her desperate cries rise up to Heaven
she feels love come down on


Shoelaces of Grace
Her Hope is reborn with
Shoelaces of Grace
She's walking forward with

knotted laces
tangled anxious
hungry for life
trying to survive


Shoelaces of Grace
Her Hope is reborn with
Shoelaces of Grace
She's walking forward with
Shoelaces of Grace

Amethyst Shards

Music by Chameleon
Produced/Mixed/Mastered by Protilius Productions


She carries her secrets
around in a box
hides them in darkness
keeps them locked

Amethyst Shards
in the depths of her heart
rattling around
like skeletons

Amethyst shards
are falling down like
houses of cards

Shoves the box
under the bed
some things are not
meant to be said

Amethyst shards
in the depths of her heart
are falling down
like houses of cards

buries her memories
stuffs all her pain
hoping they'll never
come up again

Amethyst Shards
in the depths of her heart
rattling around
like skeletons

Amethyst shards
are falling down like
houses of cards

love is the key that unlocks
Yes love is the key that unlocks

Amethyst Shards
in the depths of her heart
are falling down
Amethyst Shards
in the depths of her heart
are falling down

fragments of herself
locked in darkness

Amethyst shards
falling down like
houses of cards
Track Name: Second Fiddle
SECOND FIDDLE

©2014 Words and Music Diana Rasmussen
Mixed/Mastered by Peter Schwepker

Like a rope pulled back and forth in a tug of war
Like a soccer ball bounced from head to toe
Like the fly away ball in a baseball game
His perfect family is up in flames

He hangs on believing things will change
He is only one play away
He's caught in the middle
Playing second fiddle

Like a chess pawn sacrificed for the King and Queen
Like a quarterback sacked on the play
Like a basketball in a zone defense
He's double teamed or else he's benched

He hangs on believing things will change
He is only one play away
He's caught in the middle
Playing second fiddle

(Instrumental break)

He hangs on believing things will change
He is only one play away
He's caught in the middle
Playing second fiddle

Track Name: Happily Ever After
HAPPILY EVER AFTER
© 2013 Diana Rasmussen

There's an empty box of Kleenex, she cries out in fear.
She stands in disbelief, realizing he's not there.
20 years of marriage, flushed down the drain.
He met up with someone else, as she stands numb with pain.


No more Prince Charming, Snow White will not wake up.
Cinderella's slipper is smashed, it's a quarter to twelve.
Little Red Riding Hood got eaten by the wolf,
3 Little Pigs are homeless now, Goldilocks met her end.
Happily Ever After is just a fairy tale, Happily Ever After is just a fairy tale.


Her tears flow freely as she's trying to let go.
All her castles washed away, not the ending she had planned.
Its lawyers and judges, contempt and child support.
Truth is stranger than fiction in never-never land.


No more Prince Charming, Snow White will not wake up.
Cinderella's slipper is smashed, it's a quarter to twelve.
Little Red Riding Hood got eaten by the wolf,
3 Little Pigs are homeless now, Goldilocks met her end.
Happily Ever After is just a fairy tale, Happily Ever After is just a fairy tale
