Track Name: Love Song
[1] Love Song
*I wrote you this song to tell you i love you
and tell you that i would be hopeless without you.
I’m glad that i finally found you. I’ve fallen in love.

We started as friends but when i held you in my arms
I got lost in your eyes & saw you different from there on
I tried not to think about the way i felt inside
I tried to say it wasn’t real, tried & failed cause that’s a lie
I thought that i was happy, turns out i was wrong
You came along & showed me what it meant to be alive
I never knew what love meant, only what i heard in songs.
Since i’ve held you now i know what i’ve been missing all along

*I wrote you this song to tell you i love you
and tell you that i would be hopeless without you.
I’m glad that i finally found you. I’ve fallen in love.

Some day i will look back on this.
There’s nothing better than to touch, to kiss, to look in your eyes
Always coming back to this.
The feeling never slipped away like a million butterflies
You couldn’t be more lovely, you couldn’t be more beautiful.
Since i’ve held you now i know what i’ve been missing all along

*I wrote you this song to tell you i love you
and tell you that i would be hopeless without you.
I’m glad that i finally found you. I’ve fallen in love.
I wrote you this song to tell you i need you
and tell you that i’d give the world just to see you.
I’m glad that i finally found you. I’ve fallen in love.

There’s still so much i’ve yet to give
You’re the one i want to live for
I’ve been waiting for you
Try & you can believe that you’re the only one
Track Name: By Your Side
[2] By Your Side
So much more than friends but not enough to call us lovers. Lately, we’ve been strangers in the night.
We’ve had our fair share of, well, misunderstandings but baby, won’t you let me make things right?
Cause it just seems so wrong to let love slip away. What can i do to make you mine?

*Oh, look into my eyes and you will see that you make me a little bit happier when you’re by my side
If you need love, I could be the one & if i’m wrong i will be okay right there by your side.

Stumbling over words in this drawn out explanation but i just want to tell you how i feel.
I could sing it in a song, i could write it in a letter 1,000 times a day ‘til you believe.
I need you in my arms. A kiss would make it better. If maybe is a chance, i need to try.

*Oh, look into my eyes and you will see that you make me a little bit happier when you’re by my side
If you need love, I could be the one & if i’m wrong i will be okay right there by your side.

Cause it just seems so wrong to let love slip away. Oh baby, can’t you see i need to try.
Track Name: Beauty
[3] Beauty
I don’t know why it took so long for me to see
that you were a beauty & i was the beast.
I took you for granted like you were the sky.
All along i was a star in your eyes.
You hung around like i was someone to be.
I didn’t know what i had ‘til you had to leave.
Oh, now i know the truth. All along babe the star was inside of you.

*I don’t know where you’re going but i will be proud when you get there. Keep going.
I’ll be celebrating for you in case you didn’t notice. But you know this.

I don’t know why it took so long for you to run & grow.
All you needed was the sun.
You thought that i was solid ground but baby i was such a beach.
Just dust in the wind & honey you were the breeze.
Now i know the truth. All along babe the sun was inside of you.

*I don’t know where you’re going but i will be proud when you get there. Keep going.
I’ll be celebrating for you in case you didn’t notice. But you know this.

Keep on to higher ground ‘til you touch the sky. The stars are not out of reach.
Listen to your heart & follow your dreams ‘til they become reality.
This is a love song i’m singing to you.
Keeping the love strong no matter what you do.
Track Name: Just A Moment
[4] Just A Moment
I threw a rock into the ocean. Oh what a terrible sound.
I run, run, run to higher ground.
I have suffered the worl with a winter. I have broken the will of the strong.
I won, won, won all alone.

*Let’s pretend for a moment there was no one to let you down.
Instead in that moment...

I was starting wars & started to see all the broken hearts were tragedies.
How did we turn, turn, turn into monsters?
If she loves you, you better hold on, she won’t give up that easy.
Don’t let her go!

*Let’s pretend for a moment there was no one to let you down.
Instead in that moment i love you.
Were we too scared to notice there was no one to let you down.
Instead in that moment i loved you.

Don’t make me beg, ‘cause i will.
I want answers now. I want out.

Sleep forever. Submerged under endless doubt.
I dug, dug... but couldn’t get out.
Track Name: Miracles (Liar)
[5] Miracles (Liar)
Pour yourself into another drink and just listen while i speak. My words, they won’t come out right so i wrote them down.
You ain’t gonna like the words i say. Doesn’t matter if you listen anyway. They’re only words i need to out loud.

*How do i believe in miracles? Heaven knows i tried. Shine a light for me, so i can see why i was so scared to let you love me.

It wasn’t gonna get easier. It wasn’t gonna fix itself. Still it hurts to see you with someone else.
I’m the one who said that we, we should go separate ways. I’m the one who said with time,
but summer only made these days longer. Longer by myself. All alone.

*Nothing’s gonna make this easier. I knew it all along. Shine a light for me so i can see where it was i went so wrong.
How do i believe in miracles when heaven knows i’ve tried. Shine a light for me so i can see why i was so scared to let you love me.

I keep playing it over again in case there’s a chance this could all be a dream but i wake up alone once again.
Track Name: All My Insecurities
[6] All My Insecurities
So far, so good. As long as you would be the one that i have fallen for.
Be the one who has all of my heart & all i ask, Hold it safe and don’t give it back. Don’t let go.

*No more secrets. No more broken promises to me baby. Think it’s best that you should leave.

If you look inside my mind. Look at all the things i’ve seen. Then maybe you would understand,
Of all my insecurities, i don’t need you to be another things to worry me.

All of this pain, it seems as though i’m finally free but nothing’s changed. Nothing seems to go away.
I don’t know why i try. I always fail. And you’re not helping me at all.

*No more secrets. No more broken promises to me baby. Think it’s best that you should leave.
Track Name: I Never Really Did
[7] I Never Really Did
Never mind my age. It’s only a number. Another page to toss & turn. A lesson learned. The one that got away.
We got older but nothing ever changes ‘cause i’m still holding on to photographs and memories.

*I was thinking ‘bout you & i that summer and the love that we had.
Amazing how much things can change but i never really did.
And i know it might sound crazy but do you remember what i said?
I never would stop loving you. Well, i never really did.

You still haunt my dreams. Or maybe it’s just my wishful thinking that maybe we can meet again someday.
‘cause i’m still holding on to photographs and memories.

*I was thinking ‘bout you & i that summer and the love that we had.
Amazing how much things can change but i never really did.
And i know it might sound crazy but do you remember what i said?
I never would stop loving you. Well, i never really did.

Did i cross your mind? For years & years and still i walk that line for you.
And babe i hope you finally found what you deserve;
A lover who can make you more than happy, to show you what you’re worth.
