Lyrics

I want to be / The last thing you think of / Before you go to sleep / So won’t you please / Remember that this song / Is your good night from me

I’ve been laying awake / I’ve been thinking of you / You’ve been hearing some things / I hope you know that they’re true / You can ask me anything you like / There’s only one thing I want tonight

You don’t have to say good night / Oh just promise me that I’ll be on your mind

I need to know before I let you go / So won’t you let me know

If I can’t hold on to you / Won’t you hold on to me / I’m not there in your arms / I’m not where I want to be / There’s only one way to make this right / So let me here you say tonight

When you turn out the light / When you’re closing your eyes / I need to be on your mind / So good night, good night

Lyrics

It’s not a situation you take lightly / Oh, no / Too afraid to say what you think that it might be / And so / It’s a feeling that you get and you can’t believe / Suddenly you’ve got everything you need / And you realize

Where’d the time go? / And you know / The way that it flies when it’s just you and I so / While we’re here we’ll be making the most of / The hours that are ours though they never can be enough

Never expected this to happen / Oh, no / But you can’t ignore it because you see it in action / And so / It’s a feeling that you get and you can’t believe / Suddenly you’ve got everything you need / And you realize

At the speed of light the clock ticks / But there’s not a single second that I miss / The two of us are burning up the day / And we wouldn’t have it any other way

Lyrics

I don’t feel right / No, I’m not myself / And it seems like / I’m gonna need some help / It’s been this way for too long

It always feels like / I’m being torn apart / Whenever you are / Away from me so far / Won’t you come back where you belong?

‘Cause right now, right now you know I wish you / Were here with me cause baby I miss you / I gotta find a way to bring you back around / ‘Cause I need you here, and I need you here right now

You know I’d wait forever / But forever’s just too long

‘Cause right now, right now I need you with me / And I’d do anything to hear you say that you miss me / I gotta find a way to bring you back around / ‘Cause I need you here, and I need you here right now

Lyrics

He won’t be able to hit reset / He doesn’t get to play this game again / With all the different ways he gets hit / There’s more than one way to win / So what’s it gonna be?

Can you tell me what it’s gonna be?

She doesn’t get to keep her on friends / She doesn’t get to do her own things / The only thing she has when the day ends / Is worry for what tomorrow brings

It’s not the first time that she’s been left out / It’s not the first time that she’s been put down / The only thing she ever thinks about / Is the day she finally stands her ground / So what’s it gonna be?

Life ain’t getting longer / And you only get so many second chances / It doesn’t matter who you think they are / It doesn’t matter about the circumstances / If he doesn’t make you laugh / If she doesn’t make you smile / You could stay or you could find someone / That makes life seem worthwhile / The choice is yours / So what’s it gonna be?

Lyrics

It’s a place that we know / But a feeling we don’t / There’s something there that we both need to find / And I’ve been meaning to say / That we should get away / But I can tell you know what’s on my mind

‘Cause there’s nothing left here for us know /We built it up and tore it down / Now it’s time to keep keepin’ on

We’re gone / You and I we’re gone

It’s a place that we’ve seen / But that we’ve never been /We both know we’ll be there before long / So tell our friends that we’ve left / And whatever comes next / We’ll always have a place where we belong

We’ve always loved this place / But there’s a whole wide world that’s been going to waste without us / My love / it’s time we showed it some love

Lyrics

He saw his friends sinking / But didn’t know how to swim / Afraid of giving up / Ashamed of giving in / Threw so much away / But now he’s gaining ground / He’s finally found a way / To turn it all around

The names and faces we’ve seen / People and places we’ve been / You know there’s something they all have in common / And we don’t let go

It’d been out of control / No sense in asking why / No one was there when she left home / She didn’t need to say goodbye / Left her feeling worthless / But that doesn’t matter now / No one will be breaking her / Cause now she’s breaking out

If it’s not false then it’s true / If it’s not me then it’s you / Looking for something that we can hold on to

I know that you’re trying / Just to make it through / But it feels like dying / And you don’t know what to do / When you find your hold / Please don’t let go

Get “Starting Over Today” on iTunes or Amazon.

Lyrics

I’m starting over today /And there’s only one thing standing in my way

Because it’s finally the moment for taking back what’s mine / Don’t know when I lost it but it’s been a long time / All I know is I was buying everything you sold me / And it wasn’t coming cheap / It’s been a few years but I don’t think I would recognize you / If I saw you on the street

Because a promise is a promise but you broke all yours to me / Looked you in the eyes and I thought I could see / I have a way of only seeing what I really want to / The rest takes me by surprise / It doesn’t matter if you even knew what you were trying / It only matters that you tried

I’d love to tell you that I / Think about you / I’d love to tell you that I care

But why would I lie when / That was your thing / It was never something that we shared

I’m starting over today / And I wish you luck but I’ve got to be on my way

Lyrics

A modest house, a summer’s night / step in from the fading light / Do we ever know / What waits for us inside?

Looking back and laughing at / The kind of thing you’ve gotta ask / I know you’ve got some questions for me

Annie, where would I be? / Annie, what could I do? / My heart is just an empty space / That was always waiting for you

Stepping out into the cold / Grateful not to be alone / Teaching neon lights / Just how to shine

Early on but so for sure / Here’s to this and many more / The only thing that matters to me

You helped me at my lowest / To see that it was never hopeless / You knew what this could be / And found all that was worth finding in me


10. Whenever I Close My Eyes

Get “Whenever I Close My Eyes” on iTunes or Amazon.

Lyrics

Are you anywhere? / Or are you everywhere? / ‘Cause whenever I close my eyes / I see you there / Are you listening? / Or are you here with me? / Because whenever I close my eyes / You’re all I see

And I won’t open them / I don’t care what they’ve said / I don’t want this to end

So I won’t open them because

If you’re not real then I don’t wanna be / You’re not but you’re never far from me / When I get back you know I’m never leaving / I made my choice, you know I’ve got my reasons

I’ve been waiting here / For you to reappear / ‘Cause there’s only one place that my sight is clear / So can I stay with you / For a day or two / ‘Cause when I close my eyes all I see is you

I need you here with me

They can think what they want / And they can say what they like / But I know it ain’t right / Because I know this is happening / And try though they might / They can’t take you from me / I know what I believe / And I know this is happening
