If I had a pebble I'd throw it at your window Oh, oh If I knew a tune I'd play it on a banjo Oh, oh Oh I think I like you Do you think you like me too We could go together, you and me Like a feather and a leaf If I had a penny I'd put it in your pocket Oh, oh So you can hear me jingling when you go a-walkin' Oh, oh Oh I think I like you Do you think you like me too We could go together, you and me Like a feather and a leaf Lalalalalalala not gonna settle down Lalalalalalala never gonna touch the ground If I wrote a song then it would be about you Oh, oh I could be the singer and you could be the audience Oh, oh Oh I think I like you Do you think you like me too We could go together, you and me Like a feather and a leaf Like a feather and a leaf

Sweet On You 03:30
Ooh, look at me Pining away again Like I do It must be you Can't think of anything else That makes me melt Like an ice cube And maybe it's just me, but I don't wanna fall without you Don't wanna fall, don't wanna fall alone And maybe we could be, you and me, you and me I don't wanna go home Cause you tickle my fancy It's true, that's what you do It may be silly, but I'm really Sweet on you Ooh, look at me Pining away again Like I do It must be you Can't think of anything else That makes me melt Like you do And maybe it's just me, but I don't wanna fall without you Don't wanna fall, don't wanna fall alone And maybe we could be, you and me, you and me I don't wanna go home Cause you tickle my fancy It's true, that's what you do It may be silly, but I'm really Sweet on you I'm really sweet on you

Once upon a midnight spell When summer rose and autumn fell We were gonna sail off to the moon But dreamers fall and lovers leave And hearts are fragile, fickle things That break us apart If love is for fools Then I am one too Maybe someday you'll be my baby Maybe someday you'll stay Whenever blue skies turn to gray I think maybe baby you'll be mine someday And whenever the storms come a-blowin' I'm thinkin' of you in my arms And whenever blue skies turn to gray I think maybe baby you'll be mine someday Maybe someday you'll be my baby Maybe someday you'll stay Whenever blue skies turn to gray I think maybe baby you'll be mine someday

You caught me in a spell, I fell for you Like magic it was all that I could do And now I'm hanging by a thread Hanging on every word you said Uh-oh you know and it's no secret I've got a weakness I know that everyone can see it I've got a weakness for you You caught me by surprise, you popped my balloon It fell out of the sky and I did too And now I'm hanging by a thread Uh-oh you know and it's no secret I've got a weakness I know that everyone can see it I've got a weakness for you You stole my heart, I didn't give it to you Didn't give it to you, no You broke the door down and now you won't go You don't leave do you, no Uh-oh you know and it's no secret I've got a weakness I know that everyone can see it I've got a weakness for you You caught me in a spell, I fell for you Like magic it was all that I could do And now I'm hanging by a thread

I Never 04:17
What does it take to win What does it take to lose What does it take to pretend What does it take to accuse I never thought you'd take such offense I never meant it I never wanted any of this I thought you knew me better I never I never saw it coming Not from you Dear friend You pushed me down I hit the ground running Running What does it take to begin When what you have is broken What does it take to forget Something that's been burning on the inside I never thought you'd take such offense I never meant it I never wanted any of this I thought you knew me better I never I never saw it coming Not from you Dear friend You pushed me down I hit the ground running Running What does it take to win What does it take to lose What does it take to pretend What does it take to accuse

You could go It would be fine by me Just knowing It was never meant to be It was over Before the start And our hearts Were never meant to be tied So if you wanna stay then stay And if you wanna go then leave We could be, you and me We could be so happy I used to think That was what I used to think This is all just a dream This is not happening I used to think That was what I used to think So you know I gave it everything I tried But there wasn't any remedy I would hope that we could both be free Just knowing We're siding with destiny So if you wanna stay then stay And if you wanna go then leave We could be, you and me We could be so happy I used to think That was what I used to think This is all just a dream This is not happening I used to think That was what I used to think So if you wanna stay then stay And if you wanna go then leave

Without You 03:43
What would I do without you I don't ever wanna know Baby I built my life around you Please don't ever go Didn't know I was lost til I found you Baby I searched so long Now that you're here I already know you You were here all along The way you hold me The way we kiss Can't replace a love like this Can't live if you leave me here without you Can't breathe, you're my oxygen Can't sing, there's no song without you Without you You are my one and only I never wanna lose Just know if you ever need me There's nothing I won't do The way you hold me The way we kiss Can't replace a love like this Can't live if you leave me here without you Can't breathe, you're my oxygen Can't sing, there's no song without you Without you Can't swim, I'd drown inside the ocean Without the prince in my fairy tale Can't stand, I'm not strong without you Without you Can't live, can't breathe, can't sing without you Can't swim, I'd sink, can't stand without you Can't live if you leave me here without you Can't breathe, you're my oxygen Can't sing, there's no song without you Without you

about

Merry Ellen Kirk Nashville, Tennessee

A young explorer at heart, Merry Ellen Kirk challenges the stigma of the formulaic love song, daring her audience to consider the world in a new light. A tale of heartbreak, fragility, tension, resolution, deep longing & what-could've-beens, Feather & a Leaf continues the dreamy artistic tone that we loved so much in Firefly Garden, to a poignant lyrical exploration of the human capacity to love. ... more
