The Writer ~ Ellie Goulding

You wait for a silence
I wait for a word
Lie next to your frame
Girl unobserved
You change your position
And you are changing me
Casting these shadows
Where they shouldn’t be

We’re interrupted by the heat of the sun
Trying to prevent what’s already begun
You’re just a body
I can smell your skin
And when I feel it, you’re wearing thin

But I’ve got a plan
Why don’t you be the artist and make me out of clay?
Why don’t you be the writer and decide the words I say?
Because I’d rather pretend
I’ll still be there at the end
Only it’s too hard to ask, won’t you try to help me?

Sat on your sofa, it’s all broken springs
This isn’t the place for those violin strings
I try out a smile and I aim it at you
You must have missed it
You always do

But I’ve got a plan
Why don’t you be the artist and make me out of clay?
Why don’t you be the writer and decide the words I say?
Because I’d rather pretend
I’ll still be there at the end
Only it’s too hard to ask, won’t you try to help me?

You wait, I wait, casting shadows, interrupted
You wait, I wait, casting shadows, interrupted
You wait, I wait, casting shadows, interrupted
You wait, I wait, casting shadows

But I’ve got a plan
Why don’t you be the artist and make me out of clay?
Why don’t you be the writer and decide the words I say?
Because I’d rather pretend
I’ll still be there at the end
Only it’s too hard to ask, won’t you try to help me?

But I’ve got a plan
Why don’t you be the artist
And make me out of clay?
Why don’t you be the writer?
And decide the words I say?
‘Cause I’d rather pretend
I’ll still be there at the end
Only it’s too hard to ask
Won’t you try to help me?

Uncertainty ~ The Fray

Uncertainty, is killing me
And I’m certainly, not asleep
Maybe I’ve gone far too deep
Maybe I’m just far too weak
And that’s the last place
I want to be
The last place

And there is so much we don’t know
So we love and we hope that it holds
Thousands are lost, maybe more
The question remains, what is this for?

Maybe it came unexpected
Maybe I’m left unprotected
And that’s the last place
I want to be
The last place

And there is so much we don’t know
So we love and we hope that it holds
And either we say or we show
So I’m going to fight for my own

I’m holding on until the last
I’m holding on until there’s nothing left
I’m holding on until the last
I’m holding on ’til there’s nothing left

Scars To Your Beautiful ~ Alessia Cara

She just wants to be beautiful
She goes unnoticed, she knows no limits
She craves attention, she praises an image
She prays to be sculpted by the sculptor
Oh, she don’t see the light that’s shining
Deeper than the eyes can find it
Maybe we have made her blind
So she tries to cover up her pain and cut her woes away
‘Cause cover girls don’t cry after their face is made

But there’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark
You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful
Oh-oh, oh-oh
And you don’t have to change a thing, yhe world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

She has dreams to be an envy, so she’s starving
You know, covergirls eat nothing
She says beauty is pain and there’s beauty in everything
What’s a little bit of hunger?
I could go a little while longer, she fades away
She don’t see her perfect, she don’t understand she’s worth it
Or that beauty goes deeper than the surface
Oh, oh
So to all the girls that’s hurting
Let me be your mirror, help you see a little bit clearer
The light that shines within

There’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark
You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

Oh-oh, oh-oh
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

No better you than the you that you are (no better you than the you that you are)
No better life than the life we’re living (no better life than the life we’re living)
No better time for your shine, you’re a star (no better time for your shine, you’re a star)
Oh, you’re beautiful, oh, you’re beautiful

And there’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark
You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful
Oh-oh, oh-oh
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

Sorry ~ Buckcherry

Oh I had a lot to say
Was thinking on my time away
I missed you and things weren’t the same
‘Cause everything inside it never comes out right
And when I see you cry it makes me wanna die.

I’m sorry I’m bad, I’m sorry you’re blue
I’m sorry about all the things I said to you
And I know I can’t take it back
I love how you kiss, I love all your sounds
And baby the way you make my world go ’round
And I just wanted to say I’m sorry.

This time I think I’m to blame
It’s harder to get through the days
We get older and blame turns to shame
‘Cause everything inside it never comes out right
And when I see you cry it makes me wanna die.

I’m sorry I’m bad, I’m sorry you’re blue
I’m sorry about all the things I said to you
And I know I can’t take it back
I love how you kiss, I love all your sounds
And baby the way you make my world go ’round
And I just wanted to say I’m sorry.

Every single day I think about how we came all this way
The sleepless nights and the tears you cried
It’s never too late to make it right
Oh yeah sorry

I’m sorry I’m bad, I’m sorry you’re blue
I’m sorry about all the things I said to you
And I know I can’t take it back
I love how you kiss, I love all your sounds
And baby the way you make my world go ’round
And I just wanted to say I’m sorry.
I’m sorry baby.
I’m sorry baby, Yeah.
I’m sorry.

Heaven Forbid ~ The Fray

Twenty years, it’s breaking you down
now that you understand there’s no one around
Take a breath, just take a seat
your falling apart and tearing at the seems

Heaven forbid you end up alone, you don’t know why
Hold on tight, wait for tomorrow, you’ll be alright

It’s on your face, is it on your mind
would you care to build a house of your own
How much longer, how long can you wait
It’s like you wanted to go and give yourself away

Heaven forbid you end up alone, you don’t know why
Hold on tight, wait for tomorrow, you’ll be alright
Heaven forbid you end up alone, you don’t know why
Hold on tight, wait for tomorrow, you’ll be alright

It feels good (Is that reason enough for you)
It feels good (Is that reason enough for you)
It feels good (Is that reason enough for you)
It feels good (Is that reason enough for you)

Heaven forbid you end up alone, you don’t know why
Hold on tight wait for tomorrow, you’ll be alright
Heaven forbid you end up alone, you don’t know why
Hold on tight wait for tomorrow, you’ll be alright

Out of this one
I don’t know how to get you out of this one
I don’t know how to get you out of this one
I don’t know how to get you out of this one
I don’t know how to get you out of this one

I Don’t Care ~ Savage Garden

I ride this train
In the windswept afternoon
And the sunlight warms the faces
Of the faithless who are waiting
I ride this train
But I need a conversation
Mozambique or was it Veronique?
How about you pick the subject
And I’ll listen to you

People tell me that I feel too much
But I don’t care, I don’t care
People tell me that I need too much
But I don’t care, no I don’t care

I ride this train
In a dream-like state of mind
Through a field of frozen memories
Imagination racing
I ride this train
But I need to make connections
No I wasn’t staring
I was only trying
To get some substance
To get some meaning

People tell me that I feel too much
But I don’t care, no I don’t care
People tell me that I need too much
Well I don’t care, no I don’t care

People tell me that I feel too much
Oh no cause I don’t care
No I just don’t care anymore
As I ride this train

People tell me that I feel too much
But I don’t care, no I don’t care
People tell me that I need too much
But I don’t care, no I just don’t care

People tell me that I feel too much
Oh no cause I don’t care
No I just don’t care anymore
As I ride this train

As I ride this train
As I ride this train
Keep on riding this train
As I ride this train
As I ride this train

 

So Beautiful ~ Darren Hayes

Whether I’m right or wrong
There’s no phrase that hits
Like an ocean needs the sand
Or a dirty old shoe that fits
And if all the world was perfect
I would only ever want to see your scars
You know they can have their universe
We’ll be in the dirt designing stars

And darlin’ you know
You make me feel so beautiful
Nowhere else in the world I wanna be
You make me feel so beautiful

Whether I’m up or down
There’s no crowd to please
I’m like a faith without a clause
to believe in it
And if all the world was smiling
I would only ever want to see your frown
You know they can sail away in sunsets
We’ll be right here stranded on the ground
Just happy to be found

You make me feel so beautiful
Nowhere else in the world I wanna be
You make me feel so beautiful

I have lost my illusions
I have drowned in your words
I have left my confusion to a cynical world
I am throwing myself at things I don’t understand
Discover enlightenment holding your hand

You are…
So beautiful

Yeah darlin’ you know
That you make me feel so beautiful!
Nowhere else in the world I wanna be
Yeah you make me feel so beautiful!

Yeah darlin’ you know
That you make me feel so beautiful
Yeah darlin’ you know
That you make me feel so beautiful.

All At Once: The Fray

There are certain people you just keep coming back to
She is right in front of you
You begin to wonder could you find a better one
Compared to her now she’s in question

And all at once the crowd begins to sing
Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same

Maybe you want her, maybe you need her
Maybe you started to compare to someone not there

Looking for the right one you line up the world to find
Where no questions cross your mind
But she won’t keep on waiting for you without a doubt
Much longer for you to sort it out

And all at once the crowd begins to sing
Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same

Maybe you want her, maybe you need her
Maybe you started to compare to someone not there
Maybe you want it, maybe you need it
Maybe it’s all you’re running from
Perfection will not come

And all at once the crowd begins to sing
Sometimes
We’d never know what’s wrong without the pain
Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same

Maybe you want her, maybe you need her
Maybe you’ve started to compare to someone not there
Maybe you want it, maybe you need it
Maybe it’s all you’re running from
Perfection will not come

Maybe you want her, maybe you need her
Maybe you had her, maybe you lost her to another
To another

Flying Home (Brenda’s Song): Chantal Kreviazuk

It’s hard to let you go
You’ve always let me in
And helped with all the endings
And you know where to begin
I need you here for me
Cuz you always know my heart
I can’t believe we’d change
Or have to be apart

But if you’ve seen the love that’s in her eyes
Then everything is good
And if you know the way she felt inside
She’s flying where she should
I never believed we’d ever live to see
An angel being born
And flying home

It’s good to know your laugh
And you’ll always hold my hand
And watch from up in heaven
And always understand
We’ll take you down the road
And in everything we do
We’ll know how much you love us
A soul that’s kind and true

And if you’ve seen the love that’s in her eyes
Then everything is good
And if you know the way she felt inside
She’s flying where she should
I never believed we’d ever live to see
An angel being born
And flying home

Can you see the love in her eyes
If you’ve seen the love that’s in her eyes
Then everything is good
And if you know the way she felt inside
She’s flying where she should
I never believed we’d ever live to see
An angel being born
And flying home again
I never believed we’d ever live to see
An angel being born
And flying home again

Not Ready To Make Nice: Dixie Chicks

Forgive, sounds good.
Forget, I’m not sure I could.
They say time heals everything,
But I’m still waiting

I’m through, with doubt,
There’s nothing left for me to figure out,
I’ve paid a price, and i’ll keep paying

I’m not ready to make nice,
I’m not ready to back down,
I’m still mad as hell
And I don’t have time
To go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is
You think I should

I know you said
Why can’t you just get over it,
It turned my whole world around
and i kind of like it

I made by bed, and I sleep like a baby,
With no regrets and I don’t mind saying,
It’s a sad sad story
That a mother will teach her daughter
that she ought to hate a perfect stranger.
And how in the world
Can the words that I said
Send somebody so over the edge
That they’d write me a letter
Saying that I better shut up and sing
Or my life will be over

I’m not ready to make nice,
I’m not ready to back down,
I’m still mad as hell
And I don’t have time
To go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is
You think I should

I’m not ready to make nice,
I’m not ready to back down,
I’m still mad as hell
And I don’t have time
To go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is
You think I should

Forgive, sounds good.
Forget, I’m not sure I could.
They say time heals everything,
But I’m still waiting
