Careful Confessions (2004)[edit]

  • Set me free
     Leave me be
     I dont wanna fall another moment into your gravity
  • Here I am
     And I stand
     So tall
     Just the way I'm supposed to be
     But you're on to me
     And all over me
    • "Gravity"
  • The time that I've taken
    I pray is not wasted
    Have I already tasted
    My piece of one sweet love
    • "One Sweet Love"
  • I don't care
    For your fairytales
     You're so worried about the maiden
    Oh, you know she's only waiting on the next best thing
    • "Fairytale"

Kaleidoscope Heart (2009)[edit]

  • I'm going down
    Follow if you want
    I won't just hang around
    Like you'll show me where to go
    I'm already out
    Of foolproof ideas
    So don't ask me how
    To get started
    It's all uncharted
  • Ooh, how'm I gonna get over you?
     I'll be alright
     Just not tonight
     But someday
  • I'll be alright
    Once I find the other side
    Of someday
    • "Gonna Get Over You"
    • Written by Bareilles and Sam Farrar
  • Who cares if you disagree?
    You are not me
    Who made you king of anything?
    So you dare
    Tell me who to be
    Who died and made you king of anything?
  • I wanna darken in the skies
    Open the floodgates up
    I wanna change my mind
    I wanna be enough
    I want the water in my eyes
    I wanna cry until the end of time
    I wanna let the rain come down
    Make a brand new ground
    • "Let the Rain"
  • Maybe nobody loved you when you were young
    Maybe, boy, when you cry nobody ever comes
    Will you try it once?
    Give up the machine gun
    • "Machine Gun"

Once Upon Another Time (2012)[edit]

  • They may be lies
     But say that we'll be alright
    If we stay tonight
    • "Stay"
  • A tongue like yours should be burned and branded
    So I can see you lie to me
    I wish the air would color red when you breathed it
    Oh, so I could've seen it coming
    Look in my eyes when you say you love me
    So I can see you lie to me
    • "Lie to Me"
  • Mean songs are still better than going postal
    • "Sweet As Whole"
  • I say what I think
    Because it's more economic than drugs or a drink
    • "Sweet As Whole"

The Blessed Unrest (2013)[edit]

  • I wonder what would happen if you
    Say what you want to say
    And let the words fall out
    Honestly, I want to see you be brave
    • "Brave"
    • Written by Bareilles and Jack Antonoff
  • You said
     Remember that life is
    Not meant to be wasted
     We can always be chasing the sun
     So fill up your lungs and just—run!
     We can always be chasing the sun
    • "Chasing the Sun"
  • So how do you do it?
     With just words and just music
     Capture the feeling
     That my earth is somebody's ceiling
     Can I deliver in sound
     The weight of the ground
    of a cemetery
    in the center of Queens
    • "Chasing the Sun"
  • You can have Manhattan
    I know it's for the best
    Gather up the avenues and leave them on your doorstep
    • "Manhattan"
  • You are all just perfect little satellites
    Spinning round and round this broken Earthy life
    • "Satellite Call"
  • I've got my little black dress on
    And if I tell myself that nothing's wrong
    This doesn't have to be a sad song
    Not with my little black dress on.
    • "Little Black Dress"
  • I would die to make you mine
    Bleed me dry almost every time
    But I don't mind, no I don't mind it
    I would come back 1000 times
    • "1000 Times"
  • Tell the world that we finally got it all right
    I choose you
    I will become yours and you will become mine
    I choose you.
    • "I Choose You"
    • Written by Bareilles, Jason Blynn, and Pete Harper
  • There's no way to make the pain play fair
    It doesn't disappear just because you say it isn't there
    • "Eden"
    • Written by Bareilles and Matt Hales
  • It can't be a mistake
    If I just call it change
    • "December"
