back together

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

I don’t wanna be the center of it all
I don’t wanna be a memory fading
I don’t wanna be somebody I’m not
I just wanna be somebody amazing

I’ve been holding on to everything
With arms above, I’m balancing

I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together
I’ve been stalling, slipping, falling
Nothing, darling, lasts forever
There’s no way I’d trade my scars for better ones
I’ve been lost and I’ve been broken
Finally coming back together

I don’t wanna be afraid of my thoughts
I don’t wanna be scared of my shadow
Everybody looks for love where it’s not
Everybody wants to know they matter

I’ve been holding on to everything
With arms above, I’m balancing

I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together
I’ve been stalling, slipping, falling
Nothing, darling, lasts forever
There’s no way I’d trade my scars for better ones
I’ve been lost and I’ve been broken
Finally coming back together

I’ve been holding on to everything
With arms above, balancing

I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together
I’ve been stalling, slipping, falling
Nothing, darling, lasts forever
There’s no way I’d trade my scars for better ones
I’ve been lost and I’ve been broken
Finally coming back together
Back together
(I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together)

Back together

get in the car and drive

Friday, February 15th, 2019

In the picture, you’re right beside me
Arms around my neck and eyes like you’ll never leave
A love lover, a sweet thing
I know we agreed but I think I’ll call you anyway, uh-huh

Well hello it’s just me
A little distance and I lost something in between
I’ve waited forever
For this to get better
You said “why should I believe in something
I can’t see or feel with my fingers?
Yeah why should I believe?”

And I said:
“Anytime you think you wanna be my love
That’s a reason, do what you’re thinking of
Anytime you think you wanna come on over
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive”

We hold on, take it slowly
Breathing deep and meaning every word for just you only
Keep this inside of you, no matter what you do
These are the simple things in loving you
The simple things in loving you

And you said “how can I believe in something
When you’re never here? I’m not even sure I need this.
How can I believe?”

And I said:
“Anytime you think you wanna be my love
That’s a reason, do what you’re thinking of
Anytime you think you wanna come on over
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive”

I’ve waited forever
For this to get better
And you said “why should I believe in something
I can’t see or feel with my fingers?
Yeah why should I believe?”

And I said:
“Anytime you think you wanna be my love
That’s a reason, do what you’re thinking of
Anytime you think you wanna come on over
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Get in the car and drive”

just a girl

Friday, October 5th, 2018

Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
I’m exposed, and it’s no big surprise
Don’t you think I know
Exactly where I stand
This world is forcing me
To hold your hand

‘Cause I’m just a girl, little ol’ me
Well don’t let me out of your sight
Oh, I’m just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don’t let me have any rights
Oh, I’ve had it up to here!

The moment that I step outside
So many reasons for me to run and hide
I can’t do the little things
I hold so dear
‘Cause it’s all those little things
That I fear

‘Cause I’m just a girl
I’d rather not be
‘Cause they won’t let me drive
Late at night
Oh I’m just a girl
Guess I’m some kind of freak
‘Cause they all sit and stare
With their eyes

Oh I’m just a girl
Take a good look at me
Just your typical prototype
Oh, I’ve had it up to here!

Oh, am I making myself clear?

I’m just a girl
I’m just a girl in the world
That’s all that you’ll let me be!
Oh I’m just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb
Make me worry some
Oh I’m just a girl, what’s my destiny?
What I’ve succumbed to
Is making me numb
Oh I’m just a girl, my apologies
What I’ve become is so burdensome
Oh I’m just a girl, lucky me
Twiddle-dum there’s no comparison
Oh, I’ve had it up to –
Oh, I’ve had it up to –
Oh, I’ve had it up to here

six pack summer

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

Winter sure was cold and miserable
Cooped up, shut down; baby, it was pitiful
Anyhow, it’s over now
We owe it to ourselves to have a little fun
The pace car’s pacin’;
Now the green flag’s wavin’

Uh oh, another six-pack summer comin’
Sing to me, babe; I’ll be your dashboard drummer, and
Let’s turn the radio up as loud it can go (Uh-oh oh oh)
Got the ultra-ray wraparound sunglass vision
Got the sails up, iced-down, cool ambition
Just to relax and let the six-pack summer roll

We’ve got the sun block, a blanket, and the best of Jimmy Buffet
T-bones for the grill; hey, ain’t it great to rough it?
The party’s on from dawn til dawn
Twenty-four-seven till they pull the plug
No more waitin’; come on and kiss me, baby

Uh oh, another six-pack summer comin’
Sing to me, babe, I’ll be your dashboard drummer, and
Let’s turn the radio up as loud it can go (Uh-oh oh oh)
Got the ultra-ray wraparound sunglass vision
Got the sails up, iced-down, cool ambition
Just to relax and let the six-pack summer roll (Uh-oh oh oh)

Slow and steady, I’m so ready
Uh oh, another six-pack summer comin’
Sing to me, babe, I’ll be your dashboard drummer, and
Let’s turn the radio up as loud it can go (Oh-oh oh oh)
Got the ultra-ray wraparound sunglass vision
Got the sails up, iced down, a cool ambition
Just to relax and let the six-pack summer roll (Uh-oh oh oh, uh-oh oh oh)
Uh oh, another six-pack summer comin’
Uh oh

not forgotten you

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

Came home a little early last night
Shed not a tear when I turned out the light
No, I don’t hurt like I used to
Didn’t wait for the knock on my door
Drawer in the room ain’t empty anymore
So many got it tougher than I do
But I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten you

Time flies and you just know
Time to think about letting go
‘Times I even forget to be blue
Big feet to shuffle them sands
Leave no trail and slip right through your hands
Done every little thing I know to do
But I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten you

And I said “Hail the western bound with it’s black tail flying”
Lay on the rails and leave me to dream
Of where your love was mine

Time flies and you just know
Time to think about letting go
‘Times I even forget to be blue
But I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten you

No, I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten you

Hey I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten you

we don’t need another hero (thunderdome)

Thursday, April 5th, 2018

Out of the ruins, out from the wreckage,
Can’t make the same mistakes this time.
We are the children, the last generation,
We are the ones they left behind

And I wonder when we are ever gonna change?
Living under the fear, till nothing else remains

We don’t need another hero,
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

Looking for something we can rely on
There’s got to be something better out there.
Mmmm, love and compassion, their day is coming
All else are castles built in the air

And I wonder when we are ever gonna change?
Living under the fear, till nothing else remains.

All the children say,
We don’t need another hero,
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

So what do we do with our lives?
We leave only a mark.
Will our story shine like a light,
Or end in the dark?
Give it all or nothing!

We don’t need another hero, hero
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome
All the children say,
(We don’t need another hero)
We don’t need another hero
(We don’t need to know the way home)
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

navigator

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Keep missing our exits
But we let ’em pass by
I told you that I don’t mind, it’s alright,
Just wanna be with you tonight
You’re leaving me breathless
Like I’m falling for the first time
You don’t have to say a word
I’m back to where we were
At a red light, when I fell for you
Baby, drive slow, ’cause I love the view
We can stop here, if you want me to
It’s a long road, but if

You are my navigator
We could take the long way home
We could take the long way
Hoooooooooooome
You are my navigator
You never have to bring me home
You never have to bring me
Hoooooome
‘Cause home is everywhere we go

With a tank full of daydreams
Leave our fears at the roadside
I’m blind with your love, I lose sight,
I wanna get lost tonight
In the simplest places
In the look in your eyes
I never want to touch the ground
‘Cause we’re safe and sound

At a red light, when I fell for you
Baby, drive slow, ’cause I love the view
We can stop here, if you want me to
It’s a long road, but if

You are my navigator
We could take the long way home
We could take the long way
Hooooooome
You are my navigator
You never have to bring me home
You never have to bring me
Hooooooome
Cuz home is everywhere we go
(We’re at a)
Cuz home is everywhere we go
Everywhere we go
Home is everywhere we go

We can take the long way
We can take the long way home
We can take the long way
Cuz home is everywhere we go

Red light when i fell for you
Baby, drive slow, cuz I love the view
We can stop here, if you want me to
It’s a long road, but if

You are my navigator
We could take the long way home
We could take the long way
Hooooooome
You are my navigator
You never have to bring me home
You never have to bring me
Hooooooome
Cuz home is everywhere we go

this is me

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

I am not a stranger to the dark
“Hide away,” they say
“‘Cause we don’t want your broken parts”
I’ve learned to be ashamed of all my scars
“Run away,” they say
“No one’ll love you as you are”

But I won’t let them break me down to dust
I know that there’s a place for us
For we are glorious

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh

Another round of bullets hits my skin
Well, fire away ’cause today,
I won’t let the shame sink in
We are bursting through the barricades
And reaching for the sun
(We are warriors)
Yeah, that’s what we’ve become
(Yeah, that’s what we’ve become)

I won’t let them break me down to dust
I know that there’s a place for us
For we are glorious

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh
This is me

(Oh-oh-oh-oh)
And I know that I deserve your love
(Oh-oh-oh-oh)
There’s nothing I’m not worthy of
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
This is brave, this is bruised
This is who I’m meant to be, this is me

(Look out ’cause here I come)
Look out ’cause here I come
(And I’m marching on to the beat I drum)
Marching on, marching, marching on
(I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me)

(Oh-oh-oh-oh)
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
(Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh)
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
(Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh)
This is me

a place called home

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

Well, it’s not hard to see
Anyone who looks at me
Knows I am just a rolling stone
Never landing anyplace to call my own
To call my own

Well, it seems like so long ago
But it really ain’t you know
I started off a crazy kid
Miracle I made it through the things I did
The things I did

Someday I’ll go where there ain’t no rain or snow
Till then, I travel alone
And I make my bed with the stars above my head
And dream of a place called home

I had a chance to settle down
Get a job and live in town
Work in some old factory
I never liked the foreman standing over me
Over me

Oh I’d rather walk a winding road
Rather know the things I know
See the world with my own eyes
No regrets, no looking back, no goodbyes
No goodbyes

Someday I’ll go where there ain’t no rain or snow
Till then, I travel alone
And I make my bed with the stars above my head
And I dream of a place called home

And someday I’ll go where there ain’t no rain or snow
Till then, I travel alone
And I make my bed with the stars above my head
And I dream of a place called home

Someday I’ll go where there ain’t no rain or snow
And dream of a place called home

if no one will listen

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

Maybe no one told you there is strength in your tears
And so you fight to keep from pouring out
But what if you unlock the gate that keeps your secret soul?
Do you think there’s enough that you might drown?

If no one will listen
If you decide to speak
If no one is left
Standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you
For what you really are
I will be here still

No one can tell you where you alone must go
There’s no telling what you will find there
And god I know the fear that eats away at your bones
Screaming every step, “Just stay here”

If no one will listen
If you decide to speak
If no one is left
Standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you
For what you really are
I will be here still

If you find your fists are raw and red from beating yourself down
If your legs have given out under the weight
If you find that you’ve been settling for a world of gray
So you wouldn’t have to face down your own hate

If no one will listen
If you decide to speak
If no one is left
Standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you
For what you really are
I will be here still

If no one will listen
If you decide to speak
If no one is left
Standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you
For what you really are
I will be here still
I will be here still
