When I'm With You Words and Music by Amber Snider © 2016 Puddle Siren Music, ASCAP I am a statue, frozen inside I have only, one place to hide I am a soul, that's lost its way I am an island, you harbor my bay I only feel when I'm with you I only feel when I'm with you I am a shadow, the ghost of me I am carrion, my bones picked clean I am shackled, trying to break free I am numb, I have lost all feeling I only feel when I'm with you I only feel when I'm with you I only feel when I'm with you I only feel when I'm with you I am a baby helpless yet strong I am not afraid, anymore, to move on I am done hiding from shadows at night I feel the light on my face - I’m alright But I only feel when I'm with you I only feel when I'm with you I only feel when I'm with you I only feel when I'm with you When I'm with you When I'm with you When I'm with you When I'm with you I only feel… when I'm with you Lyric Video: https://youtu.be/KfQLk5HvraA

Ride The Wave Words & Music by Amber Snider © 2013 Puddle Siren Music, ASCAP I have wandered too far Throw me a line & reel me in My Soul is covered in scars I see your patience wearing thin I'm trying to learn how to deal That doesn't come so easily I'm trying to explain how I feel My demons get the best of me I will learn to ride the wave Until it swells and breaks then dissipates. Ooooh I'm trying to win a war waged with myself long ago Each battle becomes a scar With so much to lose I am forced to grow I'm trying to stay on track My inner child gets distracted I'm trying to see where it's at Before my dream fades to black I will learn to ride the wave Until it swells and breaks then dissipates. Ooooh You keep trying to fix me I am broken beyond repair I come with no warranty you're as crazy as I am so you don't care We try to explain how we feel Our words are better in writing We sign the new deal It's so much better than fighting I will learn to ride the wave Until it swells and breaks then dissipates. Ooooh I will learn to ride the wave Until it swells and breaks then dissipates. Ooooh

How You Love 04:18
How You Love Words & Music by Amber Snider © 2019 Puddle Siren Music, ASCAP You’ve been restless since you left home at age 21 Though circumstance wasn’t ideal, it bore you a son The years flew by you still feel like you’re on the run Ya’ got one foot out the door and into the sun “Oh how you love, how you love” If angels are watching from above they’re saying “Oh how you love, how you love” When you lost your daughter, you lost a piece of your heart You were just a child, barely had a start Still regret can eat a person alive at their soul You’ll try everything you can to fill the hole “Oh how you love, how you love” If angels are watching from above they’re saying “Oh how you love, how you love” Ohhhhh how you love You love so hard it breaks you in two Not many’d survive what you have been through Been the giver, the beggar, the lover and the taker No ones as hard and soft as you “Oh how you love, how you love” If angels are watching from above they’re saying “Oh how you love, how you love” Those angels are watching from above they’re saying “Oh how you love, how you love” Ohhhhh how you love

I Always Do 04:25
I Always Do Words and Music by Amber Snider © 2018 | Puddle Siren Records, ASCAP We met in a coffee shop We were young and carefree You held my hand through the years You love me for me Now we’re a family I can’t believe I can’t believe How lucky I turned out to be To have you here with me When time has come and gone When life‘s moving on I’ll still be loving you Like I always do I always do, I always do Sometimes we fight Making up feels so right We never stay mad for long That’s kept us strong I’m looking back at the years At our laughter and our tears The mirror changes on the wall yet I feel no change at all When time has come and gone When life‘s moving on I’ll still be loving you Like I always do I always do, I always do I always do I always do When I’m old and gray Too tired to die my hair I know you’ll say “It’s OK, I don’t care” You always know what to say To make me feel beautiful Like when we met that day At the coffee shop so long-ago When time has come and gone When life‘s moving on I’ll still be loving you Like I always do I always do, I always do I always do, I always do

Air That I Breathe Words & Music by Amber Snider © 2012 Puddle Siren Music, ASCAP Like a wave that comes crashing down All around, I feel you Like the sound that breaks The noise silence makes All around, I feel you I feel you surround me Like the air that I breathe I feel you around me In everything Like the song that sings through the birds in the trees All around, I hear you Like the voice in my ear That whispers so near All around, I hear you I feel you surround me Like the air that I breathe I feel you around me In everything Like the smile of a child with love in their eyes All around, I see you Like the sun that sets a colored silhouette All around, I see you I feel you surround me Like the air that I breathe I feel you around me In everything Ooooooooh Ooooooooh

Lonely Teardrops Words & Music by Amber Snider © August 9, 2018 Puddle Siren Music, ASCAP Lonely teardrops aren’t so lonely anymore Lonely beer drops leave a mess on my floor I’d like to tell you a story about a time not long ago Two hearts beat as one Lonely feardrops falling from my face Save your worries for tomorrow, today seems out of place Looking for love that will weather the storm Lonely teardrops aren’t lonely anymore Lonely teardrops falling from your eyes All the hurt, the anger when I criticize Looking for a love that‘ll just leave you alone. Lonely teardrops aren’t so lonely anymore. Lonely teardrops aren’t so lonely anymore. Lonely teardrops aren’t so lonely... anymore.

Banjo Bender 02:36
Banjo Bender Words & Music Amber Snider © 2019 Puddle Siren Music, ASCAP Up all night on a bender Crying my eyes out to you I put my heart in a blender Telling you how my love is true Telling you how-ow my love is true Up all night on a bender I shouldn’t have had those last 10 drinks You’ve always been my great defender You’d love me through anything You’d love me through-ough anything And the next day always goes the same way You telling me what I did The highs, the lows, the soft, the hard Me running naked screaming to the ya-a-ard Up all night x2 Up all night on a bender What a fool I’ve been Lord if you get me through this I’ll never do it again I’ll never do-oo it again I’ll never do-oo-oo it again

Under Construction Words and Music by Amber Snider © 2013, Puddle Siren Music, ASCAP When you called I came running You said jump, I said how high? I complied without question Without every asking why Now you're looking for answers That you can only find within Am I supposed to just stand here? And wait for you so that we can begin? This heart is closed, under construction Temporarily shut down for remodeling So thank you for your patience, your kind understanding Things will be much better at the “Grand Opening” I'm taking time for me It's been a long time coming I'm not gonna worry about your facebook status Am I your love or just a friend? You can never make up your mind I've been here the whole time One day you'll open your eyes It'll be too late and you'll realize This heart is closed, under construction Temporarily shut down for remodeling So thank you for your patience, your kind understanding Things will be much better at the “Grand Opening” I know you are use to having things your way But I don't have the strength anymore Don't worry, when I'm ready You'll be the first to know Just look for the sign on the door This heart is closed, under construction Temporarily shut down for remodeling So thank you for your patience, your kind understanding Things will be much better at the “Grand Opening” This heart is closed, under construction Temporarily shut down for remodeling So thank you for your patience, your kind understanding Things will be much better at the “Grand Opening” This heart is closed, under construction Temporarily shut down for remodeling So thank you for your patience, your kind understanding Things will be much better at the “Grand Opening”

The Honest Kind Words & Music by Amber Snider © 2004 Puddle Siren Music, ASCAP You say you’re my eternal flame, my uncrushable, unbreakable frame I hope to God that what you say is true because I only want one flame and I want it to be you. I want it to be you. You look at me with those all knowing eyes, you talk about what you want to do tonight You were never one to hold back what was on your mind and I guess I’m attracted to The Honest Kind, The Honest Kind The Honest Kind, The Honest Kind If I fall, would you be there to pick me up? I’ve never had good balance and I always get stuck. I need to take a moment to figure out what’s on my mind I need to think about if you’re indeed The Honest Kind, The Honest Kind The Honest Kind, The Honest Kind I’m not saying that I don’t know how to trust just want to make it clear up front yes I must I want to believe you when you say that it’s true and I guess I kind of do think that you are The Honest Kind, The Honest Kind The Honest Kind, The Honest Kind The Honest Kind, The Honest Kind The Honest Kind, The Honest Kind

Go Away, So I Can Miss You Words and Music Amber Snider © 2019 Puddle Siren Music, ASCAP First off let me say You mean the world to me I use to not get enough of you Now there’s not enough of me You expect things, so do I We get busy with our lives When I forget about loving you I need reminding once in a while Go away, go away so I can miss you Go away, go away so I can miss you I’m a mother, I’m a wife Before that I was just me Now endless worry clouds my mind All I wanna do is break free I need me some "me time" To listen to my heart So take the baby somewhere fun I'll miss ya while we’re apart Go away, go away so I can miss you Go away, go away so I can miss you Gurus say I need a change Gotta stop the chatter in my brain Took a bath, wrote a song, listened to the wind Found some peace inside my mind Found a place to begin But sometimes I need you to understand and... Go away, go away so I can miss you Go away, go away so I can miss you Go away, go away so I can miss you Go away, go away and I will kiss you… I promise

Waited So Long Words and Music by Amber Snider © 2012 Puddle Siren Music, ASCAP The soldier came back from the war His girlfriend married the boy next store She said I never heard from you I really didn’t know what to do I waited so long They use to feel so right How did they turn out so wrong? They use to hold each other tight Until the moonlight was gone He’s waited so long He's looked at her picture a thousand times He's told everyone, see this girl? She’s all mine Waiting for me to cross the seas Her smile would warm his heart while his body would freeze Oh he’s waited so long, he’s waited so long. But she gave him no number to call In Vietnam there was no email at all Only a napkin with a lipstick kiss And the address of where she lived It said don’t forget to write… He wrote words of love to her constantly but his letters were received down the street By a lonely old woman he would never meet who’s happy to hear from the husband she’d lost long ago in a war. Oh she’s waited so long.
