When I decided to name this album "No Betty," I was simply saying that I'm not stereotypical. I am a mixture of many things. My life as an artist is more than meets the eye.

Track Name: Heartbreak Train
Standing at the station
smoking my last cigarette
waiting for the train to come in
as I turn and face the wind

Passion aint passion till you feel it ache
am I in love with you or do I love the chase

Oh can I take the train to Nashville from LA
I still feel the pain two thousand miles away
all aboard, all aboard on the heartbreak train

Sometimes I don't say enough
sometimes you say too much
is it worth the fight to figure it out in this life

People say that time heals everything
say that time will tell
but the truth of the matter is
we all forget just a little bit
Track Name: Slow It Down
It seems this hour glass is leaking sand
and the whole sea shore is slipping through my hands
The minutes turn to hours and the days to years
There's no looking back or turning around

Keep it simple, keep it slow, you're gonna get to where you gotta go
Keep it real original and sometimes leave it alone

Lay your worries down
there's no need to need to hurry now
It's so easy to move too fast, slow it down
oh, slow it down, ooh slow it down, oooh make it last

Well time aint cheap and I don't wanna waste it
I could make more but it means makin changes
My tail is running and I don't wanna chase it
I wanna be myself and not fake it
Track Name: Rebound
Seems like love is just for fun, giddy kisses on our tongues
and oh to see how far you'd run, just to get a little some some

I'm always breaking up when you come around
You are my crutch, you are my rebound
You're more than fine helping me clear my mind
The game is contagious, who would blame us

For little kisses, little wet kisses, little kisses on my mouth
For little kisses, little wet kisses, little kisses on my tongue
cause I'm on the rebound, I'm on the rebound
I'm on the rebound and makin love is just for fun
oh I'm on the rebound, I'm on the rebound
I'm on the rebound and I'm bound to break your heart

Chemicals between our lips, are always new in every kiss
and the reaction that exists is like a crime to be commit

I just wanna be loved for hell's sake, forget all that I've given away
I am sick of trying to replace a love that takes years to create
Track Name: We've Got Each Other
Happiness is just a joyful mess
we're all skipping through the pages trying to find a love that last for ages
There's a truth to the matter its only what you make it
When we're shifting through the phases
it's more than love that keeps it sacred

It takes more than one of us
It takes more than one of us

Cause we, we've got each other
ya, we, we've got each other
and this love can last forever
if we just stick together
It takes all of us

You never know what can take your love away
you lost your job yesterday and we're living pay to pay
There's a truth to the matter and its only what you make it
cause tomorrow is another day and we'll start it all again and again

Can we look at our lives at a different angle
open our minds through the eyes of a stranger
forget all our selfish motivation
add more of your heart to the equation
Track Name: I Believe
Where were you when I was in need?
Where were you when I was down on bended knee?
Where were you when I could not breathe?
Where were you when you made the choice to leave?

Yes I was so silly to think that you would let me be
and I was silly to think that you ever loved me

Everything I said I have done, everything I wrote I have sung,
every battle I've overcome, I lose every time you come around
cause I believe in love, la da da da da

I can still feel you in my dreams, still lyin in your arms while I sleep
I can still hear you whispering all the promises you made and could not keep

I was so silly to think that you could set me free
and I was so silly to think that you ever loved me

Why is it so hard to move forward when there isn't any going back?
We can't retrace the touch of our skin or turn back for one last look.
Track Name: Lay Me Down
The first time you looked me in the eyes
you made me smile that smile I smile
I loved you then and I love you now
when I couldn't find my way
I found it in you some how

lay me down in sheets of silver
lay me down in sheets of gold
cause we are young and beautiful
and I wanna make love to you when I am old
so lay me down

my love, by now you know me well
you know me better than anyone else
know every story I have to tell
when it's hard to hear
you still come around

If we only have time to lose
let's lose it together
Hold me in your arms
and wrap me up forever
Cause I've found a home in you
so we can live wherever,
wherever you can lay me down
