Anger

Verse 1
I'm down on my luck
Nothing goes my way
It's getting harder just to make a buck
Tomorrow seems to be like yesterday
Why don't you ever shut the hell up?
Your voice is annoying and so are you

Verse 2
There is not enough time in a day
I get frustrated when I don't know what to say
My blood pressure rises
I get shut out, I get ripped off
I get nothing but a scoff

Bridge
Why do you have to ask how I'm feeling?
Can't you see?
I'm angry

Chorus 1
Anger - inside if me
I can't let it go
This is me

Chorus 2
Anger - inside of me
I can't let it go
If I do, who will I be?

My Ride's Here

Verse 1
The days are getting shorter
And time is passing me by
Sometimes when I think about my life I cry
I don't want to be lazy
I want to amount to something
At this moment in time I have nothing
You are not the ruler of me
I am

Verse 2
I will always need help
Just like everyone else
But I will always try my best
This is not a race to the finish line
I'll go at my own pace

Bridge
As I look out my window
I see a world full of opportunity
I'm going out there to reach my potential
I can't afford to be in here
Wasting every moment
I only have one life to live

Chorus 1
My ride's here
I've got to go
I won't be coming back home
So this is goodbye
We'll never see each other again
You are part of my past
I must create my future

Chorus 2
My ride's here
I've got to go
I won't be coming back home
I must create my future

Hold Your Fire

Verse 1
You think you're right and I am wrong
You think I'm guilty and you are innocent
You think you're smart and I am dumb
You think I'm afraid and you are brave

Verse 2
You think you're good and I am bad
You think I'm ashamed and you are proud
You think you're happy and I am sad
You think I'm weak and you are strong

Bridge 1
You think I should pay for what I'm accused of
You only see what you want to see
You think I'm ugly and you are beautiful
You think you're rich and I am a poor
You think I'm crazy and you are sane
Given the chance, I'll prove you wrong
Then you'll know I was right all along

Bridge 2
You think I should pay for what I'm accused of
You only see what you want to see

Chorus
Hold your fire
Don't shoot at me
I need more time to plead my case
Why the rush to judgement?
The result is a lot of consequences

First Time In A Long Time

Verse 1
I've been down, I have felt low
Spun around not knowing where to go
There was no place I could call home
I've been sick, I have felt weak
Stayed in bed for countless weeks
I was slowly losing my will to live
Now I have found it

Verse 2
I had no friends, had no family
Everything was all about me
Now I have people as a part of my life
I had people as a part of my life
I had no hope, had no faith
I felt as if I was out of place
I waited all this long
Now I feel like I belong

Bridge
Everything old is new again
I'm able to live again

Chorus
I smiled for the first time
I cried for the first time
I laughed for the first time in a long time
I can't remember when I last felt this way
I have never felt so alive

Drinking Coffee Elsewhere

Verse 1
The service you provide is unprofessional
Your attitude is a bit disgraceful

Verse 2
I'm putting my money where my mouth is
I have advised others to boycott your business

Verse 3
Money is power
And I have a lot of it
Not a penny will go into your pockets

Bridge
I won't pay attention to your discounts
I will throw your flyers in the garbage
I'm leaving your company for good

Chorus
I'll be drinking coffee elsewhere
I'm leaving your establishment
I no longer like the way you conduct yourself

Willing To Wait

Verse 1
I just can't get enough of you
You are the first and last thing
On my mind each day
When I'm with you, my face lights up
And when I smile, it stretches from ear to ear
I feel cared for, feel important
You make me the centre of your universe
It's like I'm the king of the world
And everything I want is within my reach
But you say you have to go away
I don't want you to
But it's not up to me

Verse 2
I want you by my side
Instead of talking with you over the phone
You got me through the days
I was able to sleep comfortably through the nights
My heart is taking over my brain
I'm going insane

Bridge 1
I wasn't sure if I really loved you
Now that you are gone
I really know that I do

Bridge 2
You are my life
You are my world
I love you so very much

Chorus
I am willing to wait
I will not be going anywhere
I will be right here when you come back

I'm Alive And On Fire

Verse 1
I exploded onto the scene
I'm in shape, fit and lean
I'm an idol, I'm a star
I live in a mansion, I own two cars

Verse 2
I had dreams, I had wishes
When I was broke I was washing dishes
I quit my job, moved out of town
Now I'm feeling safe and sound

Verse 3
I was on Dateline, I was on 20/20
Soon I will be on CNN
I've got a movie deal
I've got a clothing line
Everything in life seems to be fine

Verse 4
I'm a winner, I'm a survivor
I'm not a fan of MacGyver
I sign autographs, I go to parties
The paparazzi can't get enough of me

Chorus 1
I'm alive and on fire
Look at me now, I'm almost everywhere
I'm alive and on fire
People are shouting my name
They're acting like they're insane

Chorus 2
I'm alive and on fire
Look at me now, I'm almost everywhere
I'm alive and on fire

No Longer My Concern

Verse 1
I put my heart and soul into us
Everything I did was all for you
You were always on my mind
You came first while I came second

Verse 2
I placed my life on hold
All my efforts went into making you a success
We built a life together
But you deceived me
How can I ever trust you?
How can I believe you again?

Bridge 1
I loved you, you didn't love me
I cared for you, you disrespected me

Bridge 2
Why did you use me?
Why did you hate me?
Why didn't I see through you?

Chorus
You are no longer my concern
I'm not going to yearn for what we had
Because it was based on lies
You felt nothing for me
We were never really happy

Who Do You Think You Are?

Verse 1
The killer of the night
The thief of hearts
The king of the world
The whore of the neighbourhood
The person of the year
The athlete of the week
The employee of the month
The artist of the day

Verse 2
The robber of the town
The gossiper of the workplace
The mother of the year
The loser of the class
The weak of the weakest
The strong of the strongest
The smart of the smartest
The cool of the coolest

Verse 3
The president of the company
The cleaner of the washrooms
The maid of the rich family
The hot thing of the hour
The DJ of the station
The owner of the store
The scene stealer of the show
The friend of an addict

Chorus 1
Who do you think you are?
A rising dream or a falling star?
Who do you think you are?
A forgotten dream or a shining star?

Chorus 2
Who do you think you are?
A broken dream or a bright star?
Who do you think you are?
A beautiful dream or a stolen star?

Asleep At The Wheel

Verse 1
I thought I was beautiful
Until I looked in the mirror
I thought I was happy
Until I couldn't smile anymore
Things rarely seemed worthwhile
I thought I was peaceful
Until I became angry
I started to hate people
Even those I did not know
I had sunk very low
I was losing track of what was going on around me
I didn't care about anything
Not even myself

Verse 2
I thought I was grateful
For having food and a shelter
In truth, I was not
I always wanted much more
Even needed things that I longed for
I thought I was able to love someone else
But I couldn't because I was afraid
Afraid of being me

Bridge 1
I thought I was a nice person
Until I was told I wasn't
I thought I could be anything I wanted to be
Until I realized that not all dreams come true
That is just the way things are

Bridge 2
The weight of life is on my shoulders
I can't carry it anymore
I'm sinking further into the ground
And if I can't get up
Maybe I wasn't meant to

Chorus 1
I have been asleep at the wheel
Dreaming about all the raw deals
That have been given to me
Miserable is how I feel
Everything I am is too real for me

Chorus 2
I have been asleep at the wheel
Dreaming about all the raw deals
That have been given to me
Miserable is how I feel
Everything I am is too real for me
Insanity could be my destiny
Then I would not remember who I became
It's the same as being asleep at the wheel
