about

“Alternative country is such a wide and varied subgenre that to call Renee Wahl an alternative country artist tells you almost nothing about her sound. You have neotraditionalists…, cowpunk artists…, bands with more of an alternative pop sound…, [and artists] who are alternative because they sing about subjects that aren’t considered mainstream or just haven’t met mainstream success yet, artists like Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, and Gillian Welch. Renee Wahl fits more into this category than any other. Wahl keeps it simple as a Nashville singer/songwriter, creating rootsy country music that actually sounds like country music. Cumberland Moonshine isn’t your run-of-the-mill modern pop country. It’s not rock and roll with a twang in the voice. What it is is a modern document of an art form slowly being choked off by an image of country that has been popularized by the modern music business. Wahl cuts through the layers of hype and gives us a damn good record.”
- Danny McCaslin, Lonely Friday (Apr 06, 2011)

Track Name: On Something New
The moonlight is mine
The stars are too
I’ve crossed a line
Now no more blues
I’m gonna fly
I’m busting through
Don’t need to sleep
To dream sweet dreams
High as the moon
On Something New

I can’t sleep
There’s no rest for me
Can’t stop thinking ‘bout
What tomorrow brings
No longer waiting
To make my move
My life is sweet
You’re in my dreams
High as the moon
On Something New

Tossing and Turning
My heart is burning for you
Sheets on the floor
Still wanting more
Don’t need to sleep
To dream sweet dreams
High as the moon
On Something New
High as the moon
On Something New

Tossing and Turning
My heart is burning for you
Sheets on the floor
Still wanting more
Don’t need to sleep
To dream sweet dreams
High as the moon
On Something New

My life is sweet
You’re in my dreams
High as the moon
On Something New
High as the moon
On Something New
High as the moon
On Something New
Track Name: Keeping You For Mine
You treated me so mean
You treated me so cruel
You made me sad you made me cry
You thought I was a fool

But now it makes no difference
Cause you’re mine all the time
Even though you broke my heart
I’m Keeping You For Mine

Keeping You For Mine
Buried ‘neath that lonesome hill
No one knows where you went
And they never will

You broke my heart
One too many times
But now I’ve got you baby
And I’m Keeping You For Mine
Now I’ve got you baby
And I’m Keeping You For Mine

You treated me so bad
You know it wasn’t right
Ran around with all those other girls
While I was crying every night

You told me you loved me
But now I know what for
As soon as you were done with me
You were out the door

But now it makes no difference
Cause you’re mine all the time
Even though you broke my heart
I’m Keeping You For Mine

Keeping You For Mine
Buried ‘neath that piney hill
No one knows where you went
And they never will

Keeping You For Mine
Underneath that lonesome hill
No one knows where you went
And they never will

You broke my heart
One too many times
But now I’ve got you baby
And I’m Keeping You For Mine

You broke my heart
One too many times
But now I’ve got you baby
And I’m Keeping You For Mine
But now I’ve got you baby
And I’m Keeping You For Mine
But now I’ve got you baby… And I’m Keeping You For Mine
Track Name: Around
There’s way too many
Cards in play
So many things that we should say
But if I’m the cause
Of all your pain
I’ll be seeing you
Around

You say you’re
Just about to break
But I’ve never rained
On your parade
And if I was just
Your big mistake
I’ll be seeing you
Around

Remember how we used
To hit the bars
Chasing parties
In your old car
We knew how to time
The lights just right
To beat the crowd
There every time
Swinging down Lover’s Lane
The windows looked like
They were wet with rain
And everybody’d laugh
When we finally showed up

Now I know
We’re miles apart
And there’s not much chance
Of a new start
But maybe next time
I’m in town
I’ll be seeing you
Around
Guess I’ll be seeing you
Around
Guess I’ll be seeing you
Around
Track Name: One More To Go
This glass on the table
Is full of your lies
You broke my heart
You left me here to cry
But I’ll drink away this heartache
I’ve got One more to go to get over you


Won’t take me long and I’ll be moving on
And I’ll know you’re not the only one
But if you see that I’m still blue then I’ve got
One more to go to get over you


This song that’s playin’
Gonna make me forget
Everything miss about you

And you’ll fade away
And I’ll sing away this heartache
I’ve got One song to go to get over you


Won’t take me long and I’ll be moving on
And I’ll know you’re not the only one
But if you see that I’m still blue then I’ve got
One more to go to get over you


One more to go and I’ll be fine
I’ll let you go and leave your mem’ry behind

Won’t take me long and I’ll be moving on
And I’ll know you’re not the only one
But if you see that I’m still blue then I’ve got
One more to go to get over you
Track Name: Under My Skin
This scar so deep under my skin
A sign of my mortal sin

My shameful heart bleeds to let you in
Won’t let me forget where I’ve been


Won’t go away
Dig it out
But it stays the same


My soul is lost
Caught in between
A state of grace
And these broken dreams
I’m paralyzed
By the flame

Won’t go away
Dig it out
But it stays the same


Can I forgive all you’ve done
Have seeds of hate already be sewn

Won’t go away
Dig it out
But it stays the same


My soul is lost
Caught in between
A state of grace
And these broken dreams
I’m paralyzed
By the flame

Won’t go away
Dig it out
But it stays the same
Track Name: Roses Are Blue
Your Roses Are Blue
And now so are you
I won’t be loving you anymore
Cause your Roses Are Blue

You bought me a single red rose
The very first night we met
I told you those were my favorite ones
But you’d soon forget
You started bringing me
Those Roses Of Blue
And that was when I realized
You’d never be true

Your Roses Are Blue
And now so are you
Cause I can’t love you anymore
Your Roses Are Blue

You sent me a white rose bouquet
And I liked that a lot
Put ‘em in my favorite vase
And set ‘em in a sunny spot
But I don’t know what you were thinking
With those Roses Of Blue
I guess that was just the wake up call
That you and I were through

Your Roses Are Blue
And now so are you
I can’t love anyone
Who brings Roses Of Blue

You said you’d write me a letter
And I thought that was cute
But when I opened up the card
The roses on it were blue
You know you coulda done better
But to tell you the truth
It don’t think I could ever
Really love anyone
Who likes Roses Of Blue

Your Roses Are Blue
And now so are you
I can’t love anyone
Who brings Roses Of Blue
Track Name: Heartbreak Thing
I’m tired of love
Cause I always end up
With my head hanging
Down in my drink
Buy another round
Act like a clown
Laughin’ like I just
Won a bank
I get lost in the night
Trying to get right
But still find myself
Back on the brink
Trying to get drunk
But it’s not any fun
When you’re doing the Heartbreak Thing

I’ve been doing the Heartbreak Thing every night
And every night ends up the same
I try to get right
But end up in a fight
And just drive myself insane
This would be the night
When the bottle ain’t right
I’m not even feeling my drinks
Going insane
A slave to the pain
Doing the Heartbreak Thing

Well I’d call up my friends
Say you gotta help me out
But I’m still thinking
My phone might ring
So instead I end up
Sitting here all alone
Doing this stupid
Heartbreak Thing
And if you did call up
I’d probably jump back in
I’d be there
Before you could blink
Forgetting bout’ the pain
All the hell you put me through
When you hit me with this Heartbreak Thing

I thought I had your lovin’
But ended up with nothin’
But an imitation diamond ring
Now I’ll be up all night
Losing precious sleep
Doing this Heartbreak Thing
This would be the night
When the bottle ain’t right
I’m not even feeling my drinks
Going insane
A slave to the pain
Doing the Heartbreak Thing

Looking for fun
Forget I was stung
Ready for one more fling
But it always ends up
With me crying my eyes out
Doing the Heartbreak Thing
I know I won’t be able
To sleep tonight
I wish I could get away clean
But I’ll be up all night
Losing precious sleep
Doing the Heartbreak Thing

I’ve been doing the Heartbreak Thing every night
And every night ends up the same
I try to get right
But end up in a fight
And just drive myself insane
This would be the night
When the bottle ain’t right
I’m not even feeling my drinks
Going insane
A slave to the pain
Doing the Heartbreak Thing
Track Name: Come On Baby
Come On Baby
Let’s drive a little faster
A thousand miles an hour
Flirting with disaster

Even when I was a girl
Playing with my first love
I knew how to have fun
But I never got enough

Come On Baby
I wanna take you for a ride
If you think I’m crazy now
Wait till I get you inside
Y’know I want to drive you
Crazy
So Come On Baby

Come On Baby
And I’ll teach you how to shake it
If you want some real loving
Here’s a girl who doesn’t fake it

You know I’m not afraid
To hang out on the train tracks
Dancing on the rails
And never ever looking back

Come On Baby
I’m gonna take you for a ride
If you think I’m crazy now
Wait till I get you inside
Y’know I want to drive you
Crazy
So Come On Baby

Come On Baby
Turn the lights down low
And put some Gram Parsons
On the stereo
Come On Baby
My hearts on fire
Can’t you see it in my eyes
I’m burning with desire

Come On Baby
Wanna take you for a ride
If you think I’m crazy now
Wait till I get you inside
Y’know I want to drive you crazy
So Come On Baby
Track Name: Love Won't Be Denied
You can struggle
You can cry
You can tell yourself a lie
But Love Won’t Be Denied
Love Won’t Be Denied
You can try to mess with fate
But love won’t separate
Love Won’t Be Denied
Love Won’t Be Denied

No Love Won’t Be Denied
My Love Won’t Be Denied
No Love Won’t Be Denied
My Love Won’t Be Denied

Some spend all their lives
With a husband or a wife
And their Love Won’t Be Denied
Their Love Won’t Be Denied
Others tear apart
Live out life
With broken hearts
Because Love Won’t Be Denied
It Won’t Be Denied

No Love Won’t Be Denied
Their Love Won’t Be Denied
No Love Won’t Be Denied
Their Love Won’t Be Denied

Love has seen it all
Love will never fall
Love can break your heart
And tear down all your walls

Love Won’t Be Denied
No Love Won’t Be Denied
Love Won’t Be Denied

You can struggle
You can cry
You can tell yourself a lie
But Love Won’t Be Denied
Love Won’t Be Denied
You can try to mess with fate
But love won’t separate
Love Won’t Be Denied
It Won’t Be Denied

No Love Won’t Be Denied
Your Love Won’t Be Denied
No Love Won’t Be Denied
Your Love Won’t Be Denied
Track Name: Got A Feeling
Oh Oh Oh
I Got a Feeling
Oh Oh Oh
I Got a Feeling

I Got a Feeling
That I can’t win
I Got a Feeling
I’m gonna let you in
Oh Oh Oh
I Got a Feeling
I Got a Feeling

I Got a Feeling
You won’t let me be
I Got a Feeling
You’ve been watching me

I Got A Feeling
That you’re something new
I Got A Feeling
You could break me in two
Oh Oh Oh
I Got a Feeling
I Got a Feeling

I Got a Feeling
I can’t help myself
I Got a Feeling
I’m under your spell
Oh Oh Oh
I Got a Feeling
I Got a Feeling

I Got a Feeling
That I just can’t win
I Got a Feeling
I’m gonna let you in
Oh Oh Oh
I Got a Feeling
I Got a Feeling

I Got a Feeling
I Got a Feeling
Track Name: I'm Not Waiting
I'm not waiting, I'm not waiting
I have pictures in my troubled past
and they're shaped like broken glass
I have memories I kept of you
I return them with goodbyes

'Cause I'm not waiting for you anymore
I don't care what might have been
I'm not waiting for you anymore
I give up my love can't win

But in my heart, my heart I know that though I go I'll love you still
But in my heart, my heart I know that though I go I always will
I'm not waiting, I'm not waiting

I still think about what used to be
I have dreams that might have been
Someone else will walk beside you soon
now I know my love can't win

So I'm not waiting for you anymore
I don't care what might have been
I'm not waiting for you anymore
I give up so why pretend

But in my heart, my heart I know that though I go I'll love you still
But in my heart, my heart I know that though I go I always will
I'm not waiting, I'm not waiting
Track Name: I'm A Wave
I’m a Wave
I’m a Wave
Don’t try to stand too close to me
My love will wash you out to sea
I’m a Wave, I’m a Wave,
I’m a Wave, I’m a Wave, I’m A Wave

I can feel your heartbeat
Inside me
Hold your breath
You’re sinking way too deep

You better run for higher ground
Cause if I catch you, you will drown
I’m a Wave, I’m a Wave,
I’m a Wave, I’m a Wave, I’m A Wave

I’m a Wave
I’m a Wave
I’m a Wave
I’m a Wave

Feel the surging waters
Dark and blue
Faster, Faster
Washing over you

I’m pushing you from place to place
Dragging you so far away

I’m a Wave
I’m a Wave
I’m a Wave
I’m a Wave

About to break
Nothing to hold on to
Cold and eerie
Beautiful and true

You’re going where
It’s too dark to see
Scary monsters living
In the deep
I’m a Wave, I’m a Wave,
I’m a Wave, I’m a Wave, I’m A Wave
