Face up ~ Lights

It’s late and I am tired, wish I could spark a smile
The place is flying high but right now I want to be low
Don’t want to move an inch, let alone a million miles
And I don’t want to go but I know I gotta go

I just want to feel alive

The times you don’t wanna wake up
‘Cause in your sleep it’s never over when you give up
The sun is always gonna rise up
You need to get up, gotta keep your head up
Look at the people all around you
The way you feel is something everybody goes through
Dark out, but you still gotta light up
You need to wake up, gotta keep your face up

Seems like the more you grow, the more time you spend alone
Before you know it you end up perfectly on your own
The city’s shining bright, but you don’t see the light
How come you concentrate on things that don’t make you feel right

I just want to feel alive

The times you don’t wanna wake up
‘Cause in your sleep it’s never over when you give up
The sun is always gonna rise up
You need to get up, gotta keep your head up
Look at the people all around you
The way you feel is something everybody goes through
Dark out, but you still gotta light up
You need to wake up, gotta keep your face up

I’m looking for more than a little bit
I’m gonna have to find my way through it
Gonna leave a mark, I’m gonna set a spark
I’m coming up off the ground
I won’t be looking down

The times you don’t wanna wake up
‘Cause in your sleep it’s never over when you give up
The sun is always gonna rise up
You need to get up, gotta keep your head up
Look at the people all around you
The way you feel is something everybody goes through
Dark out, but you still gotta light up
You need to wake up, gotta keep your face up

The Knife ~ Hedley

How ’bout now?
How ’bout never?
Maybe you could be a star
Maybe I couldn’t do better
Maybe we, we took it too far

I’m not saying no one’s happy
But I’m not gonna lie
The way you smile when everyone’s laughing gets me every time

Between your lips and fading lights
We’re gonna get no sleep tonight
And I love the way you twist the knife
We’re gonna get no sleep tonight

Have a look
Why’d you go sideways?
Where did you, you learn those words?
Maybe I set it on fire
Maybe we wanna watch it burn

Between your lips and fading lights
We’re gonna get no sleep tonight
And I love the way you twist the knife
We’re gonna get no sleep tonight

Let it go in slow motion
Let it go in slow motion
I don’t wanna say goodnight
I don’t wanna say goodbye

I’m not saying no one’s happy
But I’m not gonna lie
The way you smile when everyone’s laughing gets me every time

Between your lips and fading lights
We’re gonna get no sleep tonight
And I love the way you twist the knife
We’re gonna get no sleep tonight

And I love the way you twist the knife, yeah
We’re gonna get no sleep tonight, no
And I love the way you twist the knife, yeah
We’re gonna get no sleep tonight

Everything ~ Lifehouse

Find me here, and speak to me
I want to feel you, I need to hear you
You are the light that’s leading me to the place
Where I find peace again
You are the strength that keeps me walking
You are the hope that keeps me trusting
You are the life to my soul
You are my purpose
You’re everything
And how can I stand here with you
And not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
You calm the storms and you give me rest
You hold me in your hands
You won’t let me fall
You steal my heart and you take my breath away
Would you take me in, take me deeper now
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this
Cause you’re all I want, you’re all I need
You’re everything, everything
You’re all I want
You’re all I need
You’re everything, everything
You’re all I want
You’re all I need
You’re everything, everything
You’re all I want
You’re all I need
Everything, everything
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be any better-any better than this
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this

Beautiful Blue ~ Holly McNarland

From the picture on the wall
To the bed posts that touched them all
This is where I live
This is where I do my screaming

How do you say
I loved you in so many other ways
This is where I live
This is what I do best

Dreaming with so much ugliness
Waking up to all this beautiful blue
Beautiful you

From the time I walked in
To the point that we’re both arguing
This is how I live
This is where I start screaming

How do you say
I’ve always felt this way
This is where I live
This is what I do best

Dreaming with so much ugliness
Waking up to all this beautiful blue
This beautiful you

Dreaming under all this ugliness
Waking up to all this beautiful blue

Dreaming under all this ugliness
Waking up to all this beautiful blue
Beautiful you

Who You Are ~ Jessie J

I stare at my reflection in the mirror
Why am I doing this to myself?
Losing my mind on a tiny error
I nearly left the real me on the shelf
No, no, no, no, no

Don’t lose who you are in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing
It’s okay not to be okay
Sometimes it’s hard to follow your heart
Tears don’t mean you’re losing, everybody’s bruising
Just be true to who you are
(Who you are, who you are, who you are)
(Who you are, who you are, who you are)
(Who you are, who you are, who you are)
(Who you are, who you are)

Brushing my hair, do I look perfect?
I forgot what to do to fit the mold, yeah
The more I try, the less it’s working, yeah
Cause everything inside me screams no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, yeah!

Don’t lose who you are in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing
It’s okay not to be okay
Sometimes it’s hard to follow your heart
Tears don’t mean you’re losing, everybody’s bruising
Just be true to who you are
There’s nothing wrong with who you are

Yes, no’s, egos, fake shows, like woah
Just go and leave me alone
Real talk, real life, good love, goodnight
With a smile, that’s my home
That’s my home, That’s my own, no, no, no, no, no

Don’t lose who you are in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing
It’s okay not to be okay
Sometimes it’s hard to follow your heart
Tears don’t mean you’re losing, everybody’s bruising
Just be true to who you are
Yeah

Bang Bang ~ Kieran Mercer

I called her on the telephone
I said we’re better off alone
It was over and done
But she didn’t see it that way

Maybe I was in the wrong
I didn’t mean to lead her on
But I guess I should’ve known
She wasn’t looking to play

I guess she ain’t the type of girl to be reasonable
Ohhh
I hear the tick-tick-ticking it’s about to blow

She said nobody move
Finger on the trigger I’m coming for you
What can I do
She got me on the ground I’m telling the truth
Said I was the one
It hit me like a bullet shot out of a gun
So put your hands in the air
Bang Bang give me your love

So put your hands in the air
Bang Bang give me your love

Situation critical
A little more than physical
There’s a fire in her eyes
And I’m the one fanning the flame

I guess she ain’t the type of girl to be reasonable
Ohhh
I hear the tick-tick-ticking it’s about to blow

She said nobody move
Finger on the trigger I’m coming for you
What can I do
She got me on the ground I’m telling the truth
Said I was the one
It hit me like a bullet shot out of a gun
So put your hands in the air
Bang Bang give me your love
So put your hands in the air
Bang Bang give me your love
Put your hands in the air
Put your hands in the air
Bang Bang

I guess I wasn’t thinking that I was responsible
Yeah
I guess I wasn’t think-think-thinking it
Ohhhhh

She said nobody move
Finger on the trigger I’m coming for you
What can I do
She got me on the ground I’m telling the truth
Said I was the one
It hit me like a bullet shot out of a gun
So put your hands in the air
Bang Bang give me your loveSo put your hands in the air
Bang Bang give me your love
(Bang Bang)
(Bang Bang)
So put your hands in the air
Bang Bang give me your love

I Cry ~ Holly McNarland

I sat there tight lipped angry
Wide open lead her from where I am
I stand here thinking with you I’ve missed you
Can you feel me hold your hand?
Hold your hand?

Would I die on a night like this?
Would I cry for what you did?
Are you swollen from your guilty thoughts
Like I might let you in on where I’ve been
Can you taste me with your vision?
I’ve been here for some time or did you care
Did you care

Would I die on a night like this?
Would I cry for what you did?
Would I die on a night like this?

I’m sorry darlin’ watch me hate you gracefully
I fell in without you and I was head first headed for danger

Would I die on a night like this?
Would I cry for what you did?

Would I die on a night like this?
Would I cry for what you did?

She’ll sit there waiting for you
She cried for hours said you’d be right back

Banana Pancakes ~ Jack Johnson

Can’t you see that it’s just rainin’
There ain’t no need to go outside

But baby, you hardly even notice
When I try to show you
this song It’s meant to keep you
From doin’ what you’re supposed to
Like wakin’ up too early
Maybe we could sleep in
I’ll make you banana pancakes
Pretend like it’s the weekend now

And we could pretend it all the time
Can’t you see that it’s just rainin’
There ain’t no need to go outside

But just maybe like an ukulele
Mama made a baby
I really don’t mind to practice
Because you’re my little lady
Lady, lady love me
Because I love to lay here lazy
We could close the curtains
Pretend like there’s no world outside
And we could pretend that all the time

Can’t you see that it’s just raining
There ain’t no need to go outside

Ain’t no need, ain’t no need
Can’t you see, can’t you see

Rain all day and I don’t mind

The telephone singing, ringing, it’s too early
Don’t pick it up
We don’t need to
We got everything we need right here
And everything we need is enough
It’s just so easy
When the whole world fits inside of your arms

Do we really need to pay attention to the alarm
Wake up slow, wake up slow

But baby, you hardly even notice
When I try to show you this song
It’s meant to keep you
From doin’ what your supposed to
Like wakin’ up too early
Maybe we could sleep in
I’ll make you banana pancakes
Pretend like it’s the weekend now
And we could pretend it all the time

Can’t you see that it’s just rainin’
There ain’t no need to go outside

Ain’t no need, ain’t no need
Rain all day and I really, really, really don’t mind
Can’t you see, can’t you see

We’ve got to wake up slow

In Repair ~ John Mayer

Too many shadows in my room
too many hours in this midnight
too many corners in my mind
so much to do to set my heart right
oh it’s taking so long i could be wrong, i could be ready
oh but if i take my heart’s advice
i should assume it’s still unsteady
i am in repair, i am in repair

stood on the corner for a while
to wait for the wind to blow down on me
hoping it takes with it my old ways
and brings some brand new look upon me
oh it’s taking so long i could be wrong, i could be ready
oh but if i take my heart’s advice
i should assume it’s still unsteady
i am in repair, i am in repair

and now i’m walking in a park
all of the birds they dance below me
maybe when things turn green again
it will be good to say you know me

oh it’s taking so long i could be wrong, i could be ready
oh but if i take my heart’s advice
i should assume it’s still unready
oh i’m never really ready, i’m never really ready
i’m in repair, i’m not together but i’m getting there
i’m in repair, i’m not together but i’m getting there

Furious Rose ~ Lisa Loeb

“It’s not really poetry, but it’s pretty,” he said
As he raises his voice, she lowers her head
“It makes my heart heavy, you’re lonely, I think
Oh Rose, you’re sad, I suppose”

But look in her bed and she’s bound to be sleeping
She’s lying there dead but she’s breathing

Furious Rose, with your opiate eyes
Your languorous hum, that tone of surprise
I’ve heard energy in adversity, your smile, the soul of witchery
You’re not running away, you’re not running, are you?

Lyrically longing, she’s tearing the words from the page
She’s fearfully seething
“Bring me your blessings, a prayer, or a new pen
You don’t know what I need”

You look in my bed and I’m bound to be sleeping
I’m lying there dead but I’m breathing

And I’m barely balancing as it is
And I don’t want to drown in my dreams
Bring me wild plums, wild plums and acrimony
I bet you don’t even know what that means

Furious Rose, with your opiate eyes
Your languorous hum, that tone of surprise
I’ve heard energy in adversity, your smile, the soul of witchery
You’re not running away, you’re not running

You’re not running away, you’re not running
You’re not running away, you’re not running, are you?

Gingerly peering, over his shoulder
Removed herself from the room
She’s terribly freezing
She always knows
When to go
