miss invisible

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

There’s a girl
Who sits under the bleachers
Just another day, eating alone.
And though she smiles
There is something just hiding
And she can’t find a way to relate.
She just goes unnoticed
As the crowd passes by.
And she’ll pretend to be busy
When inside she just wants to cry

And she’ll say:
“Take a little look at the life of Miss-Always-Invisible
Look a little harder, I really, really want you to
Put yourself in her shoes.
Take another look at the face of Miss-Always-Invisible
Look a little closer, and maybe then you will see
Why she waits for the day
When you’ll ask her her name”

In the beginning, in the first weeks of class
She did everything to try and fit in
But the others they couldn’t seem to get past
All the things that mismatched on the surface
And she would close her eyes when they laughed
As she fell down the stairs.
And the more that they joked,
And the more that they screamed,
She retreated to where she is now.

And she’ll sing:
“Take a little look at the life of Miss-Always-Invisible
Look a little harder, I really, really want you to
Put yourself in her shoes, shoes, yeah
Oh, take another look at the face of Miss-Always-Invisible
Look a little closer, and maybe then you will see
Why she waits for the day
When you’ll ask her her name”

Then one day, just the same as the last
Just a days spent in counting the time
Came a boy that sat under the bleachers
Just a little bit further behind…

beauty in walking away

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Light shines off in the distance
A pale flickering glow
How many times do I have to dream I could be there
The time is here and she won’t be waiting
For me to find the easy way out
I’ve lost count of the days that were wasted

There’s an answer in the sound of a train
There is wisdom past the bridge on the bay
There’s a lifetime through the fog and the rain
There’s a beauty in walking away

I float on the streets that are empty
Take the path that the wind only knows
Tonight is the last time that I’ll ever be here
Oh be here

There’s an answer in the sound of a train
There is wisdom past the bridge on the bay
There’s a lifetime through the fog and the rain
There’s a beauty in walking away

It’s never quite simple, it’s never that safe
It never seems perfect until it’s too late
It’s never the right time to find a new way, yeah

There’s an answer in the sound of a train
There is wisdom past the bridge on the bay
There’s a lifetime through the fog and the rain
There’s a beauty

There’s an answer in the sound of a train
There is wisdom past the bridge on the bay
There’s a lifetime through the fog and the rain
There’s a beauty in walking away

voice on the radio

Monday, May 14th, 2012

Last night, I fell in love with a stranger
Behind the Glass House, he came
Walking out the backdoor
To a crowd of screaming girls calling his name
I never saw it coming
The way your voice can make me feel
And I fear that I am falling
I should be old enough to know
Not to fall in love with the voice on the radio

So here I stand
Fighting what I feel for you
Torn between what reason says
And how I really feel.
So here I stand
Wondering what to say to you
Hoping that you feel the same,
The same as I do

He’s in a rock band
With a voice like an angel
And eyes of a raven sky
Suddenly I find myself
At twelve years old again dreaming of you
But who am I kidding
To even think that you might see me?
It’s in the stars that girls like me
And boys like you were never meant to be

So here I stand
Fighting what I feel for you
Torn between what reason says
And how I really feel.
So here I stand
Wondering what to say to you
Hoping that you feel the same,
The same as I do

Would you be scared if I told you I like you?
And would you run if I told you I love you?

So here I stand
Fighting what I feel for you
Torn between what reason says
And how I really feel.
And here I stand
Wondering what to say to you
Hoping that you feel the same,
The same as I do
As I do
As I do

I never saw it coming
The way your voice can make me feel
And I fear that I am falling
I should be old enough to know
Not to fall in love with the voice on the radio

bring me love

Thursday, December 25th, 2008

Dear Santa,
I wrote you a letter
I wonder if you ever read it
I’ve only one wish that I ask you
It’s the same old thing as every other year
Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh

This year, I can’t say I’ve been perfect
I’m pretty sure I’ve got a regret or two
But Santa please don’t hold it against me
Because this time I’m counting on you to

Bring me, bring me love
Oh Santa
Bring me, bring me love
Oooh oh, bring me love
Oh-oh, oooh

As a child I remember dreaming
Of all the beautiful things that you can create
But I can have all the toys in the world and
You see it still wouldn’t mean a thing

Bring me, bring me love
Oh Santa
Bring me, bring me love
Oooh oh, bring me love
Oh-oh, oooh
Bring me love
Oh-oh, oooh

Cause I’ve been (I’ve been) patient (patient)
I’ve been (I’ve been) waiting so long
Hoping (hoping), praying (praying),
Just tell me that you’ve heard me just this once

Can you bring me, bring me love?
Oh Santa
Bring me, bring me love
Oh, bring me love
Oh-oh

Tell me that the time has come
That there is someone waiting for me too
So Santa,
Bring me, bring me love
Oooh oh, bring me love
Oh-oh, oooh
Bring me love
Oh-oh, oooh

stupid for you

Monday, July 14th, 2008

It’s not everyday
That I meet a person quite like you
Perfect every way
I finally found the nerve to confess that it’s you
That I want

I don’t care if I act a fool
I would damn near beg for you
Put aside, all my pride
So don’t keep me hanging here
‘Cause this girl is falling stupid for you
I’m stupid for you

The proper thing to do
Is for me to act like a lady and wait
For you to make the first move
But I don’t think you’re getting the point that it’s you
That I want

I don’t care if I act a fool
I would damn near beg for you
Put aside, all my pride
So don’t keep me waiting here
‘Cause this girl is falling stupid for you!
Oh, oh I’m stupid for you

Why’s it always feel like I am
Chasing love when nothing’s there?
And here I go just making the same mistakes
Fallen stupid for you
I’m stupid for you
Stupid for you
Stupid for you
Stupid for you
Stupid for you
