You

Verse 1
I've given you what you've begged for
so why do you keep asking me for more?
I don't have anything that you need
I don't have anything that you want

Verse 2
I don't think you're funny
But that''s just my opinion
You might say that I have no sense of humour
But you act as if you don't have a brain

Verse 3
You're the kind of person that lives life in the fast lane
You race ahead thinking you're going to win
You've crashed and burned into trouble
And I won't try to rescue you

Chorus
Don't blame me for all the problems you have
I am not the one who caused any of them
Take the time to look into the mirror
Then you'll know who created this mess
It was you and only you
Now what are you going to do?

The Two of Us

The two of us are together as one
We are unbreakable with our bond
The two of us are together as equal
We are generous when it comes to sharing
We enjoy the way we feel when we are together
It is a feeling no one can steal
Because our friendship is based on love and trust
Our bond is built on hopes for the future
Also on the many memories of the past
We both knew when we fell in love with each other
We later knew when it was right
Our breath stopped in an instant
And our young hearts took flight
There is no one description to express how we truly feel
The only thing that really matters is the fact that its genuine
Our friendship is out place of refuge
And as we huddle for strength we become united
We grow together through life experiences
Even when we fight, laugh or cry
You are part of my world
And I am part of yours
We begin a new chapter in our lives each time we open doors
The sweetness of your voice whispers to me during cold nights
It warms me to know that you are close by my side
My face lights up like the sun when you enter the room
And my heart suddenly goes boom
Our ties of friendship extend wide and far
You'll be in my heart wherever you are
The two of us are together as friends
We are helpful when it comes to listening to each other
We talked of growing older
And the bond that would remain secure
With memories intact
And thoughts of happiness settling in our minds
Our friendship is something so special
It constantly gives without a demand
I will be by your side, assisting you along the way
I will be by your side giving you a helping hand
Whenever I fall, you will catch me
Whenever I call, you will answer me
We lead ourselves back to one another when we get lost
Because we are each other's footsteps in the darkness
The two of us are together as companions
Towards one another, we are steadfast and true
Our true colours illuminate when we are both near
It never dissipates because we are not in fear
Each and every day with you is a gift to cherish
The love we have for one another is more valuable than silver and gold
The two of us are together forever

Take Me Higher

Verse 1
I know what I want
And I know what I really need
If you release me now, I'll be completely free
The chains I've been walking with are getting harder to pull

Verse 2
If someone's talking to me
And I'm not paying attention
Then I must be dreaming all the hours away
Wouldn't it be wonderful if my dreams came true?

Verse 3
Sadness and loneliness are affecting my reality
I want to leave them all behind before they take control of me
I've been wishing upon stars at night
But things are just getting worse

Bridge 1
Every time when I am down
Lift me up further away from the ground
So I can reach out and touch cloud number nine

Bridge 2
When I'm feeling low, I will let you know
Come and take me higher

Chorus 1
I don't know how to fly away because I have no wings
But I know you do because you come and go as you please
I'm at the bottom
And that's not where I belong
So I'm asking you if you could take me higher

Chorus 2
I don't know how to fly away because I have no wings
But I know you do because you come and go as you please
I'm at the bottom
And that's not where I belong
So when you find the time
Could you take me higher?

Outro
You've got the power to take me higher
work some of your magic on me

Change of Heart

Verse 1
When I say goodbye
You always say hello
I've told you time after time just where to go
How can you not understand
What I've been trying to tell you?
Maybe you realize what I say
And you can't accept the reality of it

Verse 2
For some time there was a strain on our relationship
I tried pulling it off not knowing that it was permanent
So you and I became more distant
And when we talked, it was as if we were strangers
Meeting for the first time
We didn't know what to say

Verse 3
Not being with you doesn't bother me much
When we're living on our own
I don't want to keep in touch
The only regret that I have is that I didn't leave sooner
I stayed around when situations went from bad to worse
I should have left you then

Bridge
You can say you're sorry
You can even say you were wrong
But the last thing I want to hear is another sad love song

Chorus
You can say you're sorry
You can even say you were wrong
But the last thing I want to hear is another sad love song
You can do whatever you want to do
Just as long as I say we are threw
You have to understand that you and I are breaking up
I've had a change of heart

I smile and you smile too
I laugh and you laugh too
I cry and you cry too

I blink and you blink too
I lie and you lie too

I daydream and you daydream too
I sleep and you sleep too
I walk and you walk too
Copycat
I eat and you eat too
I sing and you sing too
I make a wish and you make a wish too

I think and you think too
I dance and you dance too
I talk and you talk too

I drink and you drink too
I run and you run too
I jump and you jump too

It Was All A Dream

Intro
Too bad it was all a dream

Verse 1
I finally saw us holding each other's hand
I finally saw us sharing a long awaited kiss
But then I quickly woke up
And I knew right then and there that it was all a dream
I was apologizing for all the lies I've told
And you were forgiving me for every one of them
But then I quickly woke up
And I knew right then and there that it was all a dream
It was everything I wanted it to be

Verse 2
When I visited you at home, you let me in
You didn't threaten me or tell me to walk away
And never look back
But then I quickly woke up
And I knew right then and there that is was all a dream
We took the time to talk about what was bothering us
We told each other everything that had to be said
But then I quickly woke up
And I knew right then and there that is was all a dream
It was everything I needed it to be
It was what I was depending on

Chorus 1
I thought I was saying sorry for all the pain I've put you through
But it was only a dream
I wish that it was real

Chorus 2
I thought I was saying sorry for all the pain I've put you through
But it was only a dream
I wish that it was real
I changed the way we were communicating
We acted very mature
But it was only a dream
I wanted it to become a reality

Chorus 3
We both agreed to stop keeping secrets from one another
I looked into your eyes
And they were as sincere as your promise
But then I quickly woke up
And I knew right then and there
That our friendship was unsalvagable
It was only a dream
I wish that it was real

What's The Name of That Song?

Verse 1
Yesterday I turned the radio on
Because I was feeling bored
I wanted to listen to any type of music that was playing
I didn't want to go to sleep so early
Then a song started to play and I paid close attention
It was about a guy who didn't like who he was
He was struggling with pain and strife
And I quickly identified with him

Verse 2
I just cannot sit and wait patiently
I need to find out immediately
I know that it might sound silly
But I fell in love with that song
I just can't live without knowing the title

Bridge 1
What's the name of that song?
It's a simple question
I need a simple answer

Bridge 2
In an instant I fell in love
And in another, I was heartbroken
The song really touched me in a way nothing ever has
I don't think that I'll ever be the same

Bridge 3
Can somebody tell me the name of that song?
I'm going crazy by not knowing
Will I ever find out anytime soon?
This is something that I just have to know
I can't forget about that song
It's been stuck inside my head
And I don't want to let it out
Can somebody tell me what's the name of that song?

Chorus
What's the name of that song?
Can somebody tell me because I really need to know
The DJ never mentioned the title
But I am hoping that someone would for me

Outro
I won't stop persisting
I know somebody can help me
What's the name of that song?

Can't Stay Away

Verse 1
I have never been kissed
But I'm hoping that someday I will
You seem like the person that I'd most likely
Want to share my first kiss with
There's something about you that puts a smile on my face
And makes my heart beat at a faster pace
But I don't know what is is
I think that a spell has been cast over me
I'm drawn to you in every way, shape and form

Verse 2
I have tried to keep myself busy
But I stop to think of you
And when I do, I envision us holding hands
It's like a perfect moment
You're in my dreams leading me somewhere
I don't know where that place is
But I'll still follow you
I look into your beautiful eyes
And I feel like I am a part of you

Verse 3
When I wake up in the morning I feel so alone
Because you'r not lying next to me
And that's when I start to long for your warm, gentle touch
I just miss you so much
I'm not feeling like myself
Maybe I've drank a love potion
I know I've fallen for you
My need to see you is growing like a bubble
And it's about to bust at any time

Chorus
I just can't stay away from you
I am not immune to the force you have over me
My feelings for you are uncontrollable
There's no vaccination to prevent me from seeing you

It's My Life

Verse 1
At first I thought that you were concerned
But now I'm convinced that you're trying to control me
You tell me I won't succeed if I do things my own way
But that's how you learn
By making your own decisions
Your constant nagging is very irritating
It's the first and last thing I hear every day
When will it ever stop
My guess is: never
It's driving me up the wall

Verse 2
Since you're older than me
You should know that nobody lives forever
I don't want to waste anymore time
So I'll stop arguing with you
If you feel the need to scream at me
You should hold it inside until I leave
Why are you always working against me?
Don't you have better things to do?

Bridge
Let me live my life
You can't live it for me
I've got to make mistakes
And I've got to learn from them

Chorus
It's my life
Stop telling me what to do
You always think that I am a fool
It's my life
Stop telling me what to say
I will make it on my own without your help

I'm Movin' On

Intro
I'll be just fine on my own

Verse 1
I just can't stand being in the same room with you
You're always getting under my skin
I've been laying out my options
And now my mind is made up
There's no way you could change it
I have placed my life on hold
I've responded to your every need and want
Now it's time to focus on myself

Verse 2
Months with you were not a complete waste of time
I learned to stand on my own
It's good that I made a change
If I didn't then I'd still be stuck with you
You said that I'll eventually come crawling back to you
Well, let me tell you something
I'm going to prove you wrong

Bridge 1
I'm not scared of heading out on my own
I've learned to deal with all my fears
I'm movin' forward
I won't be held back
I'm very determined on succeeding
Walking away is the best thing that I've done

Bridge 2
No one's going to tell me what I can or can't do
I'm going to make a life for myself
I'm reaching higher
I'm not allowing anyone to make my decisions for me
I'm getting myself together
I'm movin' on

Chorus 1
I'm movin' on
Everything I leave behind will be a memory of my past
I'm going to make a life for myself
I'm welcoming the future with optimism
I'm going to make my dreams come true
I'm going to take control

Chorus 2
I'm movin' on
Everything I leave behind will be a memory of my past
I'm going to make a life for myself
I'm welcoming the future with optimism
I'm going to make my dreams come true

Chorus 3
I'm movin' on
Everything I leave behind will be a memory of my past
I'm going to make a life for myself
I'm welcoming the future with optimism

I'm Glad You're Here With Me Tonight

Verse 1
There's many obstacles that one must face
Some are hard while others are simple
There came a time when I would just breakdown
Sometimes my sadness turned into anger
I blamed everyone for all the troubles I had
But then my anger turned back into sadness

Verse 2
Everything around me is moving at a fast pace
I look into the mirror and I can't recognize my own face
Maybe if I opened my eyes wider I could see
I always paid attention to what others thought of me
Living up to their expectations were important
And if I failed, I would feel completely worthless

Verse 3
I never thought highly of myself
And if I did, I don't know what I'd be proud of
Congratulating myself for a job well done is what I don't do
If only I had the chance to turn back time
I would have changed almost everything that has happened
But since I can't, I must try to live with myself

Bridge 1
If you hadn't showed up
Things would have been different
I was looking for any easy way out
I didn't have the courage to face another day

Bridge 2
You're the one who saved my life
And for some reason I'm happier

Chorus
I'm glad you're here with me tonight
I don't know what I'd do if I was alone
Being able to relate to me is what you've done
There's no words that could express my gratitude for you

If You Don't Know

Intro
If you don't know then I will not tell you
If you don't know then I will not show you
If you don't know then you don't know
Why should I be the one to help you
Don't you remember that you left me hanging
When I needed you the most?

Verse 1
I thought we were friends
And that our friendship would last long
But now you're in trouble
And you need a way out
So you came to me and began to beg
I will not be fooled by the scheme you're trying to pull

Verse 2
Tell me how does it feel pleading for help?
I guess you're so desperate, you'd do anything
You're filled with too much pride
You have to let some out
That is something you will never do

Bridge 1
If you don't know then I will not tell you
Why should I be the one to help you?
Don't you remember that you left me hanging
When I needed you the most?

Bridge 2
I can see that you're scared
And you only wish that you had more time to change my mind
But you're never going to get a chance
So turn around and walk away
If you decide to come back to me again
Just know it will not work out
I don't care if you're in the hot seat
And you're burning up inside

Chorus
If you don't know what to say, then I will not tell you
If you don't know what to do, then I will not show you
Why should I be the one to help you?
Don't you remember that you left me hanging
When I needed you the most?

Outro
You have many questions
And you think that I have all the answers in the world
Even if I did, you would never know
Even if I did, I'd make up a lie
I won't feel pressured by you anymore
Anything concerning me is off limits
If you don't know, I won't tell you

Survivor

Verse 1
There used to be a dark and lonely period in my life
as each day went by, I became more overwhelmed
It felt as if I was in the water and drowning slowly
I thought there was nothing that I could do to save myself
But when I found the strength and courage to fight back
I instantly knew that I had the chance to save my life

Verse 2
It's comforting to know that I am still alive
If things hadn't worked out
Who knows where I'd be
The odds of overcoming all the pain and denial were very slim
I convinced myself that I wasn't up for the challenge
But then an opportunity came along and changed everything

Verse 3
A part of me was missing
And I didn't know how to search for it
Wanting to be complete was an obsession I couldn't let go of
I looked in all the wrong places but I wasn't about to give up
And then it dawned on me
That the best place to start was within myself

Bridge
I still remember all the nightmares I've dreamt
But they no longer haunt me
Taking control of my destiny
Is what I'm about to do for the rest of my life

Chorus
I can choose
I can walk and I can care
I can laugh
I can breathe and I can live
I know that I am a survivor
And I will make it on my own

Why Not Me?

Intro
I'm just wondering why you don't love me
The way that I love you

Verse 1
I have been there since the beginning
And I will be there till the end
I have been by your side when you needed me the most
But now you tell me you're in love with someone else
I just cannot understand why that someone isn't me
We've shared a lot of memories
Throughout the many years we've spend together
I cherish each and every one of them
But I don't know if you still fell the same way

Verse 2
I don't smoke, drink or even swear
So why can't you make things fair
If this is a game that you are playing, tell me now
I know there's plenty of room that you can make for me
I won't take away too much of your space
I'm very well-organized
If there's any test that you can prove my love for you is true
I would never hesitate to take it
The results would show that I won't lie to you
And I won't break your heart intentionally

Bridge 1
Am I not good enough for you?
Maybe you're too good enough for me
We can both work out our differences
I'm even willing to try
Just say that you want to be more than friends
I know that I really want to be

Chorus
The impression I get is that you really like me
But I want to be the only one that you love
There's someone else that you have already chosen
I'm always asking myself: why not me?

Outro
I'm the kind of person that you can trust
So why don't you love me the way that I love you

What I Really Think of You

Verse 1
I've got some weights that I need to get off my chest
This is the day that I have been waiting for
You're under the illusion that the entire world revolves around you
I'm giving you a piece of my mind
It never has and it never will

Verse 2
I was never afraid of you
But you thought that you could frighten me any time
I knew what you were up to
I didn't like it
When you were around, my guard wasn't down

Verse 3
You're always inconsiderate of other people's feelings
Sometimes they don't agree with you
And hurtful words are what you use to fight back with

Chorus 1
You don't deserve anything that you have gotten over the years
You've cheated people time and time again
And nobody has told you what you've done wrong
No one should trust you
You're a liar
You'd only turn your back on them
That's what I really think of you

Chorus 2
You only care for yourself
When you do anything you expect something in return
Pride has controlled you
You're too judgemental
That's what I really think of you

Outro
Many people talk behind your back
And I know what they are saying is true
You're the kind of person that lies and cheats to get what they want
That's what I really think of you

She's The One

Verse 1
I never believed that we'd ever be apart
I always thought that we'd be together forever
We could never stop talking about our future
We made many plans
I thought that they would soon come true
But now I realize that I wasted my time
There isn't a way that I can make up for it
Could she still be wondering what's going on in my life?
I don't know why but I'm still thinking of her every day

Verse 2
When I found out about her lie
I was more than angry
I asked myself why this was happening to me
If words could describe how I truly felt
Shocked and disappointed would be at the top of the list

Verse 3
I will not start to spread rumours about her
Even if she went around and talked behind my back
Settling the score between her and I crossed my mind
It just isn't worth it because more problems could be created

Bridge
She's the one who I gave my heart to
She's the one who broke it
I never lied to her
But she decided to betray my trust
I fell in love with her as days went by
I thought that I could always count on her
Looking back, I still don't know whose to blame
Is it me or is it her?
It doesn't matter at all
Because that will not change anything that happened

Chorus
She's the one who I gave my heart to
She's the one who broke it into pieces
I trusted her but she betrayed me
I am no longer the same person that I was

Nothing To Hide

Verse 1
You think that I have a double life
That somewhere out there I've got three kids and a wife
If you want to believe that, then go ahead
I won't be the one to stop you
You're on a mission to prove than I'm guilty of something
Even though there's no evidence
You're interfering with my life
And it's got to stop
How would you feel if I invaded your privacy?

Verse 2
You think that I'm always posing a threat
That everyone I come in contact with gets caught in a net
If you want to believe that, then go ahead
I won't be the one to stop you
You've become obsessed with everything that I say and do
You even write it in your journal
I think the time has come for you to grow up
How would you feel if I invaded your privacy?

Bridge
Trust me whenever I say that I have nothing to hide
If you do then maybe we could become acquaintances
But for now, I want to try to stay away from me

Chorus 1
I've got nothing to hide
But you say that I have something up my sleeve
You think I'm always causing trouble
Just get off my case
And stop breathing down my neck
Choose somebody else to annoy

Chorus 2
I've got nothing to hide
But you say that I have something up my sleeve
You think I'm always causing trouble
Just get off my case
And stop breathing down my neck
I've had enough of all your silly games
You've got to stop playing them
I can't have you as my shadow
So stop following me around

You And Me

Verse 1
We were introduced by friends
But they didn't make us fall in love
We did it all on our own
At first I tried to dismiss my feelings for you
I told myself it was only an infatuation
And nothing good could ever come out of it

Verse 2
Some say the love we once shared is very rare
They even claim that it only happens once in a lifetime
I really hope that they're wrong
Because I realized we made a lot of mistakes
We should have never let our love slip away

Chorus 1
My mind was changed when we shared our first dance
And it also changed when we shared our first kiss
But things started to go from good to bad to worse
And the only two people to blame are you and me
Everything was going well for us
But when the time came to discuss our future
We constantly let little things get in the way

Chorus 2
Your mind was changed when we shared our first dance
And it also changed when we shared our first kiss

Just Go Ahead Now

Verse 1
I don't need to learn the hard way
I don't want to keep you as a prisoner
So I'm asking you to leave without me
I've got a lot of things I need to sort out

Verse 2
Would it be best if I slowly pushed you away from my life
So I can know for sure that you'll have yours to keep
i only want you to be safe and happy
And I fear that I will deprive you of that
If you stay with me, things will get complicated
Tension is created and it might break you down
I don't want to put you through all of that
So I'm begging you to walk away before it's too late

Bridge
You don't need to learn the hard way
I don't want to keep you as a prisoner
So I'm asking you to leave without me
I've got a lot of things I need to sort out
I'm releasing you from future regrets
I'm releasing you from days of heartache
Don't make this harder than it already is
It's not worth fighting against something you can't control
Just le me do what I have to do
You need to know that this is not the end between us

Chorus
Just go ahead now
Don't think about waiting for me
I don't want to keep you from living your life
Just go ahead now
When I get the chance, I will catch up with you
And then we can begin again

Bring It On

Verse 1
This hurricane, this freezing rain
This tornado, this avalanche
This typhoon, this heat wave
It can make people act as if they're insane

Verse 2
This lightning storm, this tidal wave
This mudslide, this earthquake
This drought, this flood
It can make people think they won't be saved

Bridge 1
I try, I cry and I will die
That's what you get for living life
But every moment can be amazing
You can let disasters and people ruin your life
Or you can be determined enough to prevail

Chorus
Come on, come on
Bring it on

Outro
Release your fears
Add life to years
Remember your tears
Listen, don't hear

Different Kind of Love

Verse 1
You tell me that you love me every day
And you show it to me in every way
You know what I want and need
I can always depend on you

Verse 2
You accept me for who I really am
You would never try to force me to change myself
That's why I put my trust in you
You'd never hurt me intentionally

Verse 3
You show me how to be kind and generous
When I'm feeling sad, you know what to do
To lift my spirits up
You never expect me to be perfect
When I'm with you, I am comfortable

Chorus
You give me a different kind of love
One that gives and expects nothing in return
You give me a different kind of love
One that is unconditional and lasts forever

Time To Say Goodbye

Intro/Outro
All you have to do is say a word that consist of seven letters
I don't think it's very hard
Open your mouth and say goodbye

Verse 1
We were once close
Just like white on rice
But we have grown apart
I knew what you were thinking
And you know what I would say
But now we are clueless
We shouldn't be together anymore

Verse 2
The world won't collapse when I leave your side
Nor will it burn up in flames
It's not my job to ease your fears
You've got to do that on your own
Start to rely on yourself
We just don't see eye to eye anymore

Bridge
We don't really communicate with each other
We only say a few words
We've tried to make things better
But it was too late
All you have to do is say a word that consist of seven letters
I don't think it's very hard
Take a deep breath and open your mouth

Chorus
It's time to say goodbye
There's no reason for you to stay
Don't say "so long" because we'll never see each other again
It's time to say goodbye
There's no reason for you to stay
Try not to cry or stutter
Be strong

Un-Break My Heart

Verse 1
You left me all alone
What am I supposed to do?
You left me without any warning
It seems like you've disappeared without a trace
where have you gone to?
I hear our song and I am flooded with memories of you
I try to fight back the tears
But I lose and they slide down my face
I would give anything just to hold you in my arms again
I would give anything just to see you smile for me again

Verse 2
I'm sad without you
Make me happy by walking back into my life
I know you miss me
So come to me and say you'll love me
For the rest of your life
I can't enjoy life without you
The days are so unkind
The nights are colder
I can't keep warm without your touch

Verse 3
Undo all the hurt I've endured
Since you've been away from me
Uncry all these tears I've cried
Turn back the hands of time
And erase my misery
I need you to always be there for me

Chorus
Un-break my heart
Release me from this pain
Un-break my heart
Please return to me again
Un-break my heart

So Many Ways

Verse 1
There are so many ways to show you that I love you
Let me list some of them for you
I could run a 10k marathon while it rains
It'll be slippery but I'll try real hard not to fall
I could wrestle a lion, tiger or bear
Swim across the widest sea
Eat a bowl full of worms
Fly around the world in a hot-air balloon

Verse 2
I could walk on hot coals to show my love for you
Or even climb the highest mountain
Wear winter clothing during the summer
Break a mirror
Dance for twenty-four hours without stopping
Write you letters professing my love
Live in the Amazon for a week
Sleep on a bed covered with rats

Chorus
But more importantly, I will be your strength when you're weak
I will be your voice when you can't speak
I will be your sight when you can't see
And when you can't hear, I'll listen for you

Take Your Time

Verse 1
You're getting older
And hopefully wiser too
This is the moment when your peers have a big impact on you
You spend a lot of time with them in and out of school
Sometimes they are the only ones you feel closest to
What they say and what they do will ultimately influence you

Verse 2
You've always longed to fit in
And now you have the chance to
You think that all your problems will vanish into thin air
Before the dust completely settles
There will be tough times ahead

Bridge
You might be labelled as a loser
People who say that are not your friends
You're getting older
You've always longed to fit in
This is the moment when your peers have a big impact on you

Chorus
Promise me that you'll listen to what I have to say
Don't go rushing into anything you're not ready to do
There's always going to be pressure
And you will feel like an outcast
But that isn't a reason to give in
Just take your time

If you want someone to care for you
You don't need to look any further
I am standing right before you
I'll be by your side whenever you need me

Verse 2
If you don't want to be all alone
I will find a way to get to your heart
Then I'll always be with you wherever you go
You can count on me to be your safe haven

Ask for it and you will get it
If there's anything that you need
Don't be afraid to talk to me

Young Hearts, Broken Dreams

Verse 1
Let me tell you a story about a girl I once knew
She had beautiful hair and a smile that could light up a room
Then one day she decided to venture out on her own
She wanted to make all her dreams come true
She told her family what she intended to do
And she got a response she never expected
They told her that it was a waster of her time and money
She listened to them and never pursued her dream

Verse 2
There was a boy who everybody knew in the neighbourhood
He used to go around and say that he'll be rich and famous
Many people said that it would never happen
They would always tease him every time he went outside
And sometimes they would fight with him by using their fists
Every time that it happened, he would always lose
He started to believe what other people thought of him
He lost all of his self-esteem

Bridge
Maybe they will live their lives with a lot of regret
Maybe they'll still be chasing after their dreams
They're in a position where they could be angry or sad
Lifting their heads up and reaching for the sky is hard

Chorus 1
Her heart was young
Her dream was broken
Her family had spoken

Chorus 2
His heart was young
His dream was broken
The neighbourhood had spoken

Chorus 3
Their hearts were young
Their dreams were broken
Their family and neighbourhood had spoken

Welcome To Our Neighbourhood

Verse 1
Many people think that our neighbourhood
Is filled with guns and drugs
But you don't and we appreciate that
They day that garbage lies all around
They think our water is contaminated
And that we're to blame for the problem
But we gave you a glass of water
And you drank it till the last drop
Because you know you won't die from it

Verse 2
We've got many things to show you
And we're not going to waste your time
That's our promise to you
You will be surprised by what we can offer you
Other people think that we're no good
They don't even know us
We're kind and courteous
They label us as being low-lives
But you don't pay attention to their comments

Bridge
We know that there's rumours about us
And you knew that they're all lies
We thank you for coming

Chorus
Welcome to our neighbourhood
We hope you enjoy your visit
Welcome to our neighbourhood
We're glad to know that you're not afraid of us

I Can't Sleep

Verse 1
I can't sleep
Even though I've tried
I can't sleep
And I think I know why
I can't get you off of my mind
Even though you're gone
It stills feels like you're here

Verse 2
I'm starting to think that my house is haunted
But I know I won't be scared at all
I will be curious and start to search around
Even though you're gone, it still feels like you're here

Verse 3
Maybe it doesn't exist
And that it's all in my head
Maybe I'm afraid of sleeping with the ghost of you and me
Someone is torturing me
Could it be myself?
Even though you're gone, it still feels like you're here

Verse 4
What do I have to do to fall asleep?
Am I supposed to convince my brain that it's tired?
This isn't healthy for me at all
Even though you're gone, it still feels like you're here

Chorus
I can't live my life without getting any rest
If I hear voices, I'll get out of bed
I'll find out where it's coming from
And try to chase it out of my head
If I see visions, I'll take pictures of them
So I can know if there's something weird going on

I can't live my life without getting any rest
But what should I do if I can't sleep

Baby, I Don't Care

Verse 1
Baby, I don't care about your life
So stop telling me what happens to you
If you want to talk to somebody
That person isn't me
If you were a CD that was being played
I'd reach for the stop button
I will not hear what you have to say
I will not give you the time of day

Verse 2
I've told you that you're annoying
But you tell me that you're not
I guess you're in denial
You don't want to accept the truth
If you're out of sight, then you'll be out of mind
There's no reason for you to stay
You should leave and never look back

Baby, I don't care about you

Verse 1
For a long time I was weak
I looked around and everything was bleak
There were days when I couldn't speak
Now I'm glad to say that I'm strong again

Verse 2
Sometimes I couldn't get out of bed
There was a lot of pain in my head
There were days when I thought I was dead
Now I'm glad to say that I'm strong again

Verse 3
When I tried to walk, I would fall
Life didn't seem fair at all
There was no way of getting to the mall
Now I'm glad to say that I'm strong again

Verse 4
I was in a lot of pain
There were days when I was insane
I thought that I had nothing to gain
Now I'm glad to say that I'm strong again

Sometimes nothing mattered to me
I wanted to drift out to sea
I couldn't even pronounce the letter "G"
Now I'm glad to say that I'm strong again

I'm more than happy to be strong again

Nothing Really Matters

Verse 1
Pigs could fly
Birds could talk
Ants could cry
Buildings could start falling down
But I still wouldn't care at all
You make me feel ten feet tall
What we have is special
I wouldn't trade it for anything
You've given me joy and happiness
I could not ask for anything more
Things are fine the way they are

Verse 2
Unicorns and dragons could exist
As well as vampires, goblins and witches
But I still wouldn't care at all
The memories that we share are important to me
You're all that I need

Bridge
Pigs could fly
Ants could cry
Unicorns and dragons could exist
But I still wouldn't care

Because nothing really matters whenever I'm with you
I give you love that could last a lifetime

You won't be afraid anymore
When the night is upon you
And strange voices make you scared

If you wish upon a star

Return To Me

Verse 1
Day after day, the grass keeps growing
As well as my sadness
Would you please cut it down?
Nothing is the same without you here
The sun is hiding and the moonlight is dim
From time to time we'd watch the sun rise
Since you've been gone, I wake up at sunset
The days are too stormy for me to handle
Even if I had a flash-light, I'd still be lost

Verse 2
It seems like the clouds won't disappear
If I could defy weather, they'd be gone
My life is like the trees that have fallen to the ground
I don't know how to lift it back up again

Verse 3
I hear the sounds of pittering and pattering
Maybe that's my heart yearning for you
I hear the sound of rumbling and roaring
They're getting closer and closer

Chorus
Return to me
The sky is grey
And rain is falling down
The wind is blowing
Come and wipe these tears from my eyes
Make me feel at home again

Hated By Many, Loved By Few

Verse 1
Everybody came to see you fit to win
And you almost did
They were looking at you, screaming at you, bad-mouthing you
Many knew you'd lose by they wanted to see you humiliated
It's like showing up for support
And then suddenly letting you down
You did the right thing by standing up for yourself
Even though others thought it was wrong
You can shake things off a tree, pick it up
Then count what you have
But in your case, you'll always have a few

Verse 2
Clearly this world is not your home
You are destined for failure
Many will celebrate your hardships and shortcomings
You're a sinner like everyone else
But some think you're the worst one
You are just a man trying to live a simple life

You are hated by many, loved by few
Hated by many, loved by few

Can't Buy Me Love

Verse 1
You know that you can't buy me love
So why do you even try?
Love must come from deep within the heart
That way it's guaranteed to be genuine
If it comes from elsewhere, it's something else
And whatever it is, it can be destructive
That's not what love is all about
You have to be honest, caring and respectful
No amount of gold or silver can diminish the power love has

Verse 2
I don't want a Mercedes
I don't want a mansion
Or even a big screen TV
What I want are your feelings for me to be real
Not a single emotion should be fake
And if it is, I'll know sooner or later
Then you'll be spending your time all alone
You have to love me for who I am
Not the fantasy you have of me

Bridge 1
Can't buy me love
Don't even try
Don't want a Mercedes, mansion, big screen TV
Concert tickets or credit cards
Love me for who I am

Bridge 2
I don't want concert tickets or credit cards
I want you to be interested in me for me
I'm unique, I'm special, I'm a human being
Treat me the way you like to be treated

Chorus
You can't buy me love
It will never happen
You'll be wise to keep all your money in the bank
If time is money, you've already wasted a lot of it
I tell you this because it's true
You can't but me love

Going To California

Verse 1
My final destination is California
Once I arrive, I'll start a brand new life
I want to be a stranger among millions
I don't want anyone to know me
So I get into my car and drive away
Only taking with me what I need
What I leave behind doesn't matter to me
I consider it to be junk

Verse 2
The land of opportunity is what is is
I become ecstatic when the thought crosses my mind
I can imagine myself getting lost in the crowds
I'll just be another human being
I really want to live
So I'm acting that way
It's like starting over in a very special way
Once I'm in California, I'm never leaving
It will become my home

Bridge
The route I'm taking will get me closer to my dreams
It will be up to me to make them come true
Moving to California is the best decision that I've made
Metropolitans, beaches, sunshine...here I come

That's where I'll be for the rest of my life
There's many things that attract me to it
I know that is the place for me

Don't Say A Word

Verse 1
Don't say a word
I know what you'll say
Close your mouth
Pay attention to what's going on
Don't waste my time, I won't waste yours
I look into your eyes and know only what I need to know
You become frozen in time
And part of your life is up in the air
Soon a gentle breeze will run through your body
What you will experience is refreshing
A wave of emotions will splash into you

Verse 2
I feel a bit of reluctance from you
Your mind is tip-toeing to the edge
If you fall, I'll no longer have a hold on you
And I'll have to start the process all over again
I don't use spells or potions
To make the effect last, I'll build a connection to you
A wave of emotions will splash into you

Bridge
Don't say a word, don't ask any questions
Let me touch you once

Teacher's Pet

Verse 1
He is a little, timid boy
He's soft spoken, sometimes goes unnoticed
Now he's caught in the eye of the storm
This situation is what he always feared

Verse 2
She's the new girl in town
She displays shyness when she's in school
Now she's caught in the eye of the storm
This situation is what she always feared

Bridge
They're both intelligent
That's why dome are jealous of them
So they're called names and pushed around
They endure the abuse in silence
Telling an adult has always been an option
But the risk of doing so is far too great
The fears are increasing
And they're not about to go away anytime soon

Chorus 1
Classmates have labelled him as the teacher's pet
He just seems to be the perfect student
But accolades from his teachers doesn't fill the void inside of him

Image In The Mirror

Verse 1
What time is it there?
I don't have a watch anymore
I'm passing along this highway
While my inside wants out
But barricades and brickwalls are surrounding it like a prisoner
When I'm restless, I hide and seek
I don't know hot to be me

Verse 2
I eat breakfast at midnight
And I believe snow can fall in August
I'm not good and I'm not bad
Quite frankly, I don't know who I really am
Don't worry about me
I have denials and decisions to keep me company
At least I won't be alone

Bridge
If I grow up, I don't know if I'll be closer to the light
I don't know if I'll be saved or transformed

Chorus
While you weren't looking, I stole and cheated
The ugliness and regret is reflected onto me
I'm the image in the mirror
