War! 03:46 video
WAR! I left the call on the telephone the message said that you weren't home I let the war go on in my head. Let the tea steep for seven hours told the neighbors, don't be alarmed it's just a case of the small-town blues. Pre: I need a new place and a good talking to. Chorus: War, War the fight, what is it for? And why can't I find peace anymore? (ooh) I've gone miles from where I'm from I stand still but don't feel complete (and?) I won't admit defeat. Mama said it's an easy fix a restless pain when you're 26 the kind of thing that you shouldn't mind (ooh) So you dream of a bigger life but you're blind to what's inside: a heart grown old too soon. CHORUS Bridge: Heads I win, tails I lose I'm coming up with every excuse. I won't find answers in these doubts I work too hard to be let down… Oooooooh CHORUS

BLUE You and me / we work together endlessly, we're bound forever hold me close / don't let me go. We fight sometimes / we kiss and make up epic highs and pointless breakups I'm stuck on you / I promise to… (lightly) be the one you'll always run to effortless and close enough to tell your secrets to so take a seat we'll watch the world go blue. blue ooh ooh Give me time / to get my mind straight wanna run, want to test my fate now I know / it's you for sure… I'll be the one you always run to effortless and perfect for you I make sense with you so take a seat we'll watch the world go blue blue ooh ooh Chorus chord interlude (with kazoo) 8 bars Bridge (more intimate) C6 Em Dm C - Csus If you wait long enough til I've made up my mind enough promise you I will be there. F D7 A7 G Sometimes I can read your eyes and then I am paralyzed there is no winning without you (up on this note) hold me close don't let me go. Blue ooh ooh… (ad libs) Blue ooh ooh (over the bridge words x2) be the one you'll always run to effortless and close enough to tell your secrets to (go up) so take a seat we'll watch the world go blue.

FIRST SIGHT OF LAND You are the first sight of land When I am wayward at sea. You have my heart in your hands I need you desperately. Come away with me... CHORUS Over oceans and seas navigate to every stream just to find my resting place. From the mountains to shore but I don't have to look far at all 'cause you are my first sight of land. Our old stories keep me warm on cold California nights I slept shotgun in the car you drove straight for miles and miles CHORUS Over oceans and seas, Palisades to Tennessee Searching for my resting place. From the mountains to shore but I don't have to look far at all 'cause you are my first sight of land. Now I know You're real to me. I'll be waiting... for you When you go, Come back to me I'll be anchored at sea. at sea. Interlude CHORUS

MISSED OPPORTUNITY Don't make me do the things that you want me to do like going out dancing and listening to all your songs about somebody new. A crossword game you play while you're shuffling names I'm the answer to questions you wanted to say eight letters across for true love. CHORUS: Don't wanna be the girl on the side waiting for her goodbye holding out hope that you'll finally find I'm the one that you need by until you see I won't wait till you fall for me So call me a missed opportunity. Our friendship to the test, a broken ego at best but I'd rather hang on to whatever is left of my pride if it means goodbye You know I can't refuse things you want me to do oh, I'd be hangin' on by a string if I could so I'll walk away 'til some other day. CHORUS BRIDGE: And it'll break my heart for sure I'm supposed to be yours 'cause I saw it in a dream last night. CHORUS

UNWRITTEN RULE Please say you knew it was all a game nothing ventured nothing gained, so I tell myself I find it's hard to say those heavy things, i am still imagining you'd never think of me Finally you show up at my door a hero from a book I'd never read before In silence we made a promise we saved and unwritten rule between us To have and to hold the sides of this wall are breaking under the pressure… Childhood, chocolates and curly q's the way we are is nothing new, innocence is short one step is too far a distance to the fear you have inside of you…the fear I have in me. Maybe I'll give in to you, dear despite all my good intent like a dream that disappeared CHORUS La da das… And in a moment, it takes a moment I could see it coming wayward eyes and a pack of lies I wanted to be stronger than this I never thought I'd be the one to fall in love with anyone ... QUARTET Goodbyes only make me wanna cry there will be no tears tonight I'll wait another day I know it's wrong to him and wrong to you I can't control the things I do or trust the things I say CHORUS

Replaced 03:38
REPLACED I was born inside a tree my fingers curled around the branches the leaves fell quiet from my knees the sunlight held me in its latches And then I grew into a girl a woman made just for this world a wounded heart and painted face a wicked soul to bear the days. Don't let me be replaced Interlude We are babies underneath that innocence is our completeness but we are quiet in despair we should be shouting out in fear CHORUS Bridge: I cried out to you once or twice I heard you calling to me late last night I see the error in my ways I am beginning… to see the end of days Chorus x2

CUP OF COFFEE (VERSION 2) VERSE 1: Some say love is the answer blue skies and sunsets they're not for me jaded the polish has faded the heart isn't simple so I built a wall. PRE CHORUS: the same refrain I hear in my head is telling me… CHORUS: How we began with a cup of coffee then. Oh what I would give to get back to the palm of your hand tell me to stay remembering the days when I was not afraid of falling endlessly … over a cup coffee VERSE 2: Back then, we were so innocent took every chance to give away our hears whoa, baby, can we return to that? Or is there no turning back from where we are? PRE CHORUS: But the same refrain is stuck in my brain telling me… CHORUS BRIDGE: when the music starts you're folding me into your arms under cloudless skies counting the shooting stars we are falling in love likes are young... again CHORUS x2

BERGENFIELD, NJ They met at the swings in the park every night to count all the stars that fell from the summer sky Fall, it was over, they drifted apart 10 years gone by, but I still remember Home. Can we ever go home? Can we ever go home? Can we ever go home? Can we ever… Now I'm drawn back to the world that I loved the streets that I knew and faces familiar they smile and they say, that I'm still the same What do they know? Everything's changed. Home. Can you ever go home? Can you ever go home again? Someday you'll find, what you've left behind will still remain.

about

"World Go Blue" is Alfa's 5th release, and her most mature yet. This melody-driven collection of autobiographical songs were inspired by her move to Los Angeles in 2011. With just the right amount of pop-folk vigor to get stuck in a listener's head, each song touches on complex but universal themes, from lost innocence to the restlessness of being a 20-something, and the hope that exists despite life’s ebb and flow.
