Can You Hear Me Thinking?

Verse 1
I think I love you
However I'm not sure
Maybe I'm infatuated with you
It's just a little crush
I want to be your friend
Someone who you can trust
But I don't know if you're ready for that

Verse 2
If you want me to step back
Just tell me to
I will adhere to your request without hesitation
But I would still like to
Get to know you better
Whenever you're ready for that
Just let me know

Verse 3
I feel a connection between you and I
Honestly, it isn't an imagination of mine
I wonder what our lives would be like
If we took a step forward
I guess I'm thinking too far ahead

Verse 4
Are you apprehensive about approaching me?
Maybe it's because I'm scaring you away
When I get a thought in my head
I keep on thinking about it
So, forgive me if I appear to be obsessive

Verse 5
Can you hear me thinking?
If you can, please don't stop listening
You will come to know who I really am

Chorus
Can you hear me thinking?
If you can, tell me what is on your mind
I have already places you in an uncomfortable situation
Stop me from further embarrassing myself

All That Counts

Verse 1
The other day someone told me
That you had had enough of me
That you were going to walk away
The person went on to say
That you don't like it when I get my way
That I am selfish and insensitive

Verse 2
I saw the things they wrote about me
Nothing from them is the truth
They want you to believe I don't deserve you
Their seeds of doubt will never bloom
They will stop at nothing to bring us down
Always watching and listening for us to fall

Verse 3
I cherish the joy you have brought into my life
It was once filled with unhappiness
Because of you, my world is brighter
I don't want to think of anything else but you
When I wake up in the morning
And go to sleep at night
Thoughts of you make me smile

Verse 4
You love me, you keep me warm
You make me happy, you make me proud
Life is worth living because of you
I know you, you know me
I care for you, I believe in you
I would never hurt you
That is all that counts in this world

Chorus
All that counts is that I love you
And you love me
Ignore what others say or do
They have tried to come between us
To break us up, to pull us apart
But they don't know that when we're together
We become stronger

For The Stars

Verse 1
We spend our hard earned money
We buy movie tickets and music CDs
We also read the books
And watch the DVDs
There are countless television shows
That means there is something for everybody
But we still complain
When things aren't done our way

Verse 2
The tabloid magazines have always been filled with lies
They have always been filled with half truths
But to the amazement of many
They still occupy space on store racks

Verse 3
Many of the entertainment stories
Are blown out of proportion
Media outlets, especially TV networks, fuel sensationalism

Chorus 1
For the stars, we do crazy things
For the stars, we let them get away with many things
For the stars, we let ourselves
To forget about life for awhile

Chorus 2
For the stars, we lose our self-respect
For the stars, we embrace decadence
For the stars, we let ourselves
To forget about life for awhile
For the stars, we are able to bring them up
Then watch them fall down
It's an ugly cycle that won't end

Now That You Know

Verse 1
We've never been friends
Not even close
But now it turns out my life is in your hands
I don't know what I'm supposed to say
I don't know what to do
I am standing here before you
Looking like a fool

Verse 2
I may be forced to be at your beck and call
I'll have to do everything you tell me to
Being your servant is what I might become
Just to keep you from telling the truth

Verse 3
There is always a price to pay
To shut someone up
I'm doing it because I can afford it
I am trying to save my life
And I will fight right to the end

Chorus 1
Now that you know what my secret is
Will you tell the whole world about it?
Now that you know what my secret is
Will you keep it to yourself
And not tell a living soul

Chorus 2
Now that you know what my secret is
Will you tell the whole world about it?
Now that you know what I have been hiding
Will you use it to turn everyone against me?

I Don't Look Like You

Verse 1
As I was growing up
My relationship with you was fragile
We never formed a bond
I was not able to love you
I don't even think that you loved me
In your eyes, I had to be perfect
You wanted me to be the younger version of you
But I protested
I wasn't able to confide in you
I never fully trusted you
You hurt me in a way I can't explain
My memories of childhood are too painful to think about

Verse 2
I'm still trying to forgive you
For what you did to me
It was was pointless and cruel
I never looked up to you
When you got angry, I was afraid of you
I would run to my room and hide
When you asked a question
And I did not answer back
I had to stand in one spot until I responded
When I was a teenager
I had to act like an adult

Bridge
I wasn't able to open up to anyone
While I was under your control
Whatever I felt, I kept it to myself
I dreamed of the day
That I would be free from you
I'm unburdening myself from my past

Chorus
I don't look like you
Thank goodness that I don't
You think I'm following in your footsteps
I'm chasing my own dreams
I'm getting as far away from you
As I possibly can
You will no longer influence me

I Just Want To Sing

Verse 1
I just want to sing
I want to sing my heart out
I want to drown myself in a song
I will sing for you
If you want me to
Tell me what you want to hear

Verse 2
Don't give me no puzzle to put together
I'm intimidated by math equations
Living a simple life is fine with me
I don't want anything that is extravagant
I don't want anything that is fancy
You said I'm foolish to do what I do
It gives me a sense of purpose
It makes me happy, it fills me with joy

Bridge
I don't want to be your bartender
I won't be your food server
My only passion is to sing
No one will take that away from me

Chorus 1
Don't tell me your problems
I can't solve any of them
The only thing that I know is music
I don't want to be your therapist
I just want to sing

Chorus 2
I will sing to you my problems
If you have some advice, hold onto them
The only thing that I know is music
In grade six, I fell in love with it
I don't want to be your doctor
I just want to sing

Taken

Verse 1
I am taken, you can't have me anymore
You should have made your move
But now it is too late
Even though you want me real bad
I will not get with you
I don't care if you're sad
Don't care if you're mad
Like a rabbit on the run
I am so far gone

Verse 2
My life is better than what it was before
I won't answer you
If you come knocking on my door
Like yesterday's garbage, you have been thrown away
Cry me a river if you have something to say
You mean nothing to me
It's like your invisible
Keep yourself from me
I don't want to be around you
Like a deluge of rain in a storm
I have cleansed every part of you from me

Chorus 1
I'm taken by someone who loves me
Having fun was the only thing you and I did
I got tired of doing that all day
I have changed, you are still the same

Chorus 2
I'm taken by someone who loves me
All you did was take advantage of me
Life was becoming mundane
I no longer suppress my pain

Chorus 3
I'm taken by someone who loves me
When you got angry, I was to blame
It was wishful thinking on my part
To believe that you could change

Bye Bye Baby

Verse 1
Bye bye baby
I'm leaving you for good
You can't stop me
I have had enough of your complaining
Your high maintenace is driving me crazy
That is who you are
I'm not blaming you for that
I won't waste anymore of my time

Verse 2
When you're kind and sweet
You act cheerful and upbeat
Sometimes that is way too much for me
I don't hold any grudges against you
I sincerely wish the best for you
I have been sleepwalking through my life
Now I am wide awake

Bridge
Somewhere out there is a life for me to live
I just have to reach out for it
And make it real

Chorus 1
Bye bye baby
Have a nice life
I'm going to start living mine right now
I will remember you because you are hard to forget
But I can't be with you any longer

Chorus 2
Bye bye baby
Have a nice life
I'm going to start living mine right now
I will remember you because you are hard to forget

The Only One

Verse 1
Along came a spider
I thought it was my friend
I told it my deepest secrets
I told it my hopes and fears
What I said landed on the front pages
What I did became TV's breaking news
Even talk radio is talking about me
Many people profit from me

Verse 2
Sometimes I feel misunderstood
So I let my feelings be known
I never wear my heart on my sleeve
It's safer inside of me
When I do the right thing
I get blamed for it
When I do something wrong
They cheer me on
I'm surrounded by strangers day in and day out
To protect myself, I wear many masks

Bridge
I've had my photo taken one too many times
Many people I've come to know
Are chasing the dime
I won't sign a contract without reading the fine print
I've learned how to take a hint

Chorus 1
I'm the only one who is all alone
In this cold, cruel world
I am seen as prey by many faceless hunters
They bask in my light
They shine in my glory
I'm the only one who they love to hate

Chorus 2
I'm the only one who is all alone
In this cold, cruel world
I am seen as prey by many faceless hunters
They lurk around me
Waiting until I'm vulnerable

Chorus 3
I'm the only one who is all alone
In this cold, cruel, nasty world
I am seen as prey by many faceless hunters
This is the price I pay
To breathe every day
