Compass 04:01
You say that I’ve been falling down on the job Wasting too much time If you were here now you’d tell me to step it up I can go anywhere I want Point me in the right direction I can take it from there I’m breaking down the reasons I’m always lost Always turned around Never know which way is down or is up Always waiting to be found Point me in the right direction I can take it from there

High Street 04:24
Well I've finally found my way home I've been looking all the while Searching under every stone It was here all this time And I love you But I've got to leave And I promise I will see you again Somewhere on High Street or maybe Cedar Where the churches are sprinkled like the raindrops on my windshield Somewhere on Bruce or maybe Dogwood Where I left my childhood Out on the curb when I was 12 years old Back when I did what I was told I came here on my own No one asked me to drive Everything's the same Cold and frozen in time And I love you But I've got to leave And I promise I will see you again Somewhere on High Street or maybe Cedar Where the churches are sprinkled like the raindrops on my windshield Somewhere on Bruce or maybe Dogwood Where I left my childhood Out on the curb when I was 12 years old Back when I did what I was told And I wonder why I don’t visit more often Maybe it’s the memories that haunt me That keep me away Most of my days And I come here to see my father Where I left him in the ground And I tell him all about my little girl And I love you But I've got to leave And I promise I will see you again Somewhere on High Street or maybe Cedar Where the churches are sprinkled like the raindrops on my windshield Somewhere on Bruce or maybe Dogwood Where I left my childhood Out on the curb when I was 12 years old Back when I did what I was told

I went out to Chicago You were the last to know Such a lovely trip I planned You begged me not to go You never wanted to see the pictures You never wanted to see the pictures I got married on the beach Eloped at the start of March I called you right after I said my vows You didn’t answer the phone You didn’t answer the phone All the words left unsaid All hurt feelings buried instead I can hardly catch my breath Now that you’re gone Then the visits stopped coming The drive seemed so long It was only a matter of time You stopped asking on the phone When are you coming home? When are you coming home? All the words left unsaid All hurt feelings buried instead I can hardly catch my breath Now that you’re gone I went out to California Played the big stage in DC With my heart beating in my throat I remember what you said to me Keep chasing the dream, babe. Keep chasing the dream. All the words left unsaid All hurt feelings buried instead I can hardly catch my breath Now that you’re gone

Sippin’ coffee on my back deck On a mountain ridge watching the sunset Holding hands on the courthouse steps On a Monday afternoon That’s where I’ll be When you come looking for me On a porch swing in Starr Hill Drinking whiskey on ice Trading stories and wiping tears Til well after midnight That’s where I’ll be When you come looking for me No, I won’t be crying alone You’ll take my hand and walk me home See right through me when my cover’s blown And I’m feeling down Reading stories at bedtime Lean over while I turn out the light Thanking my lucky stars I made it this far That’s where I’ll be When you come looking for me Oh, That’s where I’ll be When you come looking for me

Shelter 04:55
I don’t mind Being your shelter in the storm But sometimes You have to go outside The rain, the rain is good for you The pain, oh it’ll make you stronger inside Inside I’ll always be the one That you can run to To hide I will always say It’ll be okay Even if it’s a lie I will Be there for you when you fall Cause I know what it’s like Yes, I know what it’s like To hit the ground Bleary eyes look up To see no one around To help pick up the pieces I’ll always be the one That you can run to To hide I will always say It’ll be okay Even if it’s a lie You’ll need me Even though you’ll tell me One day To leave you alone I’ll give you room I’ll give you space To fly away To fly I’ll always be the one That you can run to To hide I will always say It’ll be okay Even if it’s a lie I don’t mind Being your shelter in the storm But sometimes You have to go outside

about

Pay what you can | Suggested price $4

--------

Formed in early 2015, Help Me Helen has evolved from a side solo project from Charlottesville singer-songwriter Debra Guy to an "intense and cathartic pop folk quartet," including Drew Pompano, Zachary Bullock, and Kelly Kroese. The first of two upcoming releases, "Side A" is a five-song record, the first half of their debut full-length album. Not unlike a traditional vinyl recording, "Side A" is full of catchy, driving tunes with honest lyrics and infectious grooves."
