Face The Day


Verse 1:
Anything
Can be a blessing
Or curse you blindly
It's a choice you choose

Are you in hell
When love does cast it's spell
Or in the fairy-tale
Of something true

Prechorus:
Oh I choose
To see...that

Chorus:
I will never break apart
I will mend this broken heart
I will never be afraid
To face the day

Verse 2:
The maybes
That have been said to me
Have ripped me slowly
but have strengthened my ways

And I survived
I did not run or hide
And even though I cried
I'm here today

Prechorus:
Oh I choose
To see...that

Chorus:
I will never break apart
I will mend this broken heart
I will never be afraid
To face the day

Bridge:
Because I'm
Fearless, oh I am
Fearless, oh I am
Fearless

Chorus:
I will never break apart
I will mend this broken heart
I will never be afraid
To face the day

I will never break apart
I will mend this broken heart
I will never be afraid
To face the day

Woman Scorned

Verse 1:
Stop right there, don't tell me
That you had no intetion it would go this far
You know that, I know that
The choices you've made will leave a scare
I feel it, you feel it
This anger boiling up inside of me
Back of now, use caution
I'm on the fragile edge of loosing all my sanity

Chorus:
'Cause you done me wrong
Yeah you done me wrong
I was strung along
I'm a woman scorned

Verse 2:
So tell me, exactly
When did you realize the damages done
You feel pain, I feel pain
I'm seeing red and I'm burning hotter then the sun
You're sorry, feeling sick
Tried not to give in, but you said it ripped you apart
That's bull shit, I've had it
I'll give you something to cry about

Chorus:
'Cause you done me wrong
Yeah you done me wrong
I was strung along
I'm a woman scorned

Bridge:
Don't justify what you've done to me
It's clear that we were never meant to be
Your twisted way of loving me
Makes me realize I'm glad I'm free

Naa Naa Nana Nana Na

Verse 1:
What do we know about sacrifice
When everything we want or need we buy

Chorus 1:
We take if for granted
Never know what we have
Until we can't get it back

Verse 2:
Tell me do you know what it means to fight
If you lost is all would you survive

And who would you turn to
When your faith is gone
Tell me would you be alone

It's not black or white
Not wrong our right
Only death or life

musical break

Verse 3:
We're coming to a place we can't phathom yet
With puppets in power feeding us promises

Chorus 3:
And the weak minded trust them
Believe every word they've said
and don't even question it

Bridge:
And how can you live
In a world so blind to all it's gifts?
Open your eyes
Before humanity dies

Verse 4:
What do we know about sacrifice
When everything we want or need we buy

Chorus 4:
It's not black or white
Not wrong our right
Only death or life

Only death or life

Carry Me Over


Verse 1:
I can't shake this feeling that my life's one big conspiracy
Nothing's gone right, I don't know why, I create my negativity

Pre Chorus:
It's hard to survive inside my world of doubt
I know that I'm stubborn but I need you know

Chorus:
Carry me over, carry me over
Carry me through the darkness I can't shake
Carry me over, Carry me over
Carry me to the light of better days

Verse 2:
You keep telling me that everything will work out in the end
But you don't see what happens when things break down time and time again

Pre Chorus:
It's hard to survive inside my world of doubt
I know that I'm stubborn but I need you know

Carry me over, carry me over
Carry me through the darkness I can't shake
Carry me over, Carry me over
Carry me to the light of better days

Bridge:
With you by my side I'm getting there, I'm getting by
Be patient with me because this won't happen over night
You may get worn down, but please don't give up this fight

Through the darkness I can't shake
Carry me over, Carry me over

To the light of better days

Won

Verse 1:
So you think you're in control
Know everything you need to know
'Cause you read me like a book
And you think I'm on your hook
You think you got me on my knees
and that I'm begging you please
That I'm eatin' out your hands
You think I'm your biggest fan

PreChorus:
So you want to play this game
But you shoule really be afraid

Chorus:
You really think you've got this won?
Haow

Verse 2:
Now come the point in this game
Where everything you know will change
'Cause you read me all wrong
All I did was play along
To everything that you said
So I could get into your head
To make this moment more sweet
Now that you know I gotcha beat

Prechorus:
Now it's a double sided game
And you should really be afraid

Chorus:
Do you still think you've got this won?

Bridge:
Now I'm cocky as hell 'cause
My play on you went so well
This confidence won't fade away

short muscial break

Verse 3:
Now I know all bets are off
'Cause you're throwing off your gloves
You're trying to say that you won't fade
And there's more game to be played
You want to prove it's not the end
And you're trying to defend
So you build another wall
But you know I'll make it fall

Prechorus:
Now it's a vicious cirlce game
And I can see you are afraid

Chorus/Bridge:
You really think you had this
Yeah I let you think you had this
But deep down you know I got this won

Here inside my nightmare dream
I can feel the walls close down on me
Darkness it is all around
Cannot tell which way is up or down

I fight the unseen
But it sees me

Of confusion, deceit, frustration
I feel a pressure on my chest

The water just like a bug
Helplessly stuck in time
Aware that I may never fly
Again, again

But it defeats me

Here inside my nightmare dream
I can feel the walls close down on me

Summer breeze floating high
The sky is blue, the sun is bright
Inside I feel like flying
Hear the laughter in the air
People outside everywhere
It's time, you can't deny

Chorus:
Best part of the year
Warm weather's finally here
Ball games, a beer in hand it's clear

Star gazing every night
With you by my side, I'm feeling fine
It's summertime

Everybody's got their thing
volleyball, camping, grilling
Unwind, enjoy your time
When the weather's warm like this
Nothing's better then you kiss
Your eyes, make me smile

It's summertime

If the clouds come in
And some rain should fall
I will still have a smile on my face
'Cause after the storm, a rainbow will form
and melt all my worries away

Best part of the year
Warm weather's finally here
Ball games, a beer in hand it's clear
That summer's here
Out on the lake, that's right
Star gazing every night
Wtih you by my side, I'm feeling fine
It's summertime

Track Name: Undefined
Undefined

Verse 1:
Just like the silhouette of an old oak tree
There's something about you that spoke to me
The way you looked at me with such vulnerability
You are that oak tree stripped of all it's leaves

Chorus:
I cannot believe that
I was so blind I could not see the real you
I will not forget this
Moment that you finally opened my eyes to the truth
And I won't hide
Even though I'm scared inside
It's undefined, we'll figure that our in time

Verse 2:
Against the color pallete of dawn breaking
The pastel contrast ourline of that oak tree
Helps me too see the things you don't want me to see
Your eye betray you and bring me clarity

Chorus:
I cannot believe that
I was so blind I could not see the real you
I will not forget this
Moment that you finally opened my eyes to the truth
And I won't hide
Even though I'm scared inside
It's undefined, we'll figure that our in time

Bridge:
In the fall, the leaves have changed
And gently floated to the ground
Your sheilds are down, reveals your soul
Now it's all I can see

Chorus:
I cannot believe that
I was so blind I could not see the real you
I will not forget this
Moment that you finally opened my eyes to the truth
And I won't hide
Even though I'm scared inside
It's undefined, we'll figure that our in time

I cannot believe that
I was so blind I could not see the real you
I will not forget this
Moment that you finally opened my eyes to the truth
And I won't hide
Even though I'm scared inside
It's undefined
It's Undefined
Undefined

Track Name: You Watched Me
You Watched Me

Verse 1:
Just one of those days
When you look back and wonder what might have been
Something slipped away
Now I'm huanted, it's under my skin

Verse 2:
We haven't met
But I do believe I miss you
And I want to forget
I'm so confused, I'm feeling like a fool

Chorus 1:
'Cause you watched me
As I watched you
Walk on by me
If I had turned around
Would I have seen your face
Staring back at me?

Verse 3:
I wish those eyes would fade
But all they've done is make me realize
That you're fifty shades
The more I fight the more I'm paralized

Chorus 2:
'Cause you watched me
As I watched you
Walk on by me
If I had turned around
Would I have seen your face
Staring back at me?

I watched you
As you watch me
Just walk on by
and for a moment
The world stood still
As if there was no time

Lift:
(17 measure of musical break)
Let it be wrong
Let it be right
Let it be real, Real
4x's

Resolve:
I watched you
As you watch me
Just walk on by
and for a moment
The world stood still
As if there was no time
