Lyrics

10,000 Stones

Written By: Adrianne

10,000 Stones

My days are filled with mistakes
Some that I didn’t make
I carry them around
Some people don’t weigh a thing
Some kind of blissful dream
Wish I could feel that now
And feel nothing now, cuz

10,000 stones are hanging deep in my heart
no I don’t know how they don’t tear me apart
how could I ever believe
10,000 stones would build the best of me

I’ve seen a lot in my life
I’ve seen two wrongs make a right
When everything was crashing
I know that you got your plans
You’re always making your stand
But I was only asking
I was never asking for

10,000 stones hanging deep in my heart
no I don’t know how they don’t tear me apart
how could I ever believe
10,000 stones would build the best of me

who knows what you think of me now
knowing sooner or later the truth would roll out
but I don’t want to look back
don’t want to go back to

10,000 stones hanging deep in my heart
no I don’t know how they don’t tear me apart
how could I ever believe
10,000 stones would crush the little things
10,000 stones would be a strange blessing
10,000 stones would save the fool in me
10,000 stones would build the best in me.

Shooting Star

Written By: Adrianne

Shooting Star

V1:
You shine in my eyes
Frozen still, open wide
Come down, fill my heart
With a fire you flaunt
And I can’t say a word
They would only sound absurd

CH:
Maybe you’re my shooting star
Blindly falling through the dark
Burning a hole in my sky so fierce, so bright
Maybe it’s all I need, so baby come shoot through me
Wishes won’t survive on you tonight

V2:
If you stay for good
On the ground, think you could
It’s not a life that you lead
Just a path following
Everybody else has you aiming at yourself

CH

BR:
Silver tear, fall for me and forever
You belong here, my love can fly you higher
Higher, higher

Breakdown CH

CH

When She Takes

Written By: Adrianne/D.Batteau

When she takes
She takes me far from my mistakes
God knows I’ve made some
I have run and I have fallen
Tearing all my curtains down
Here she comes, my only freedom
A note slips under my door

I can feel her, I believe her
When she tells me it’s ok
I know she’s trying, if she’s lying
It don’t matter anyway
Cuz she makes me stronger, stronger one more day

When she breaks
She makes my heart break
Loves me like a wrecking ball

CH

Oh my love, my shining river
The valley is dark, but you know the way
A listening choir, my hallelujah
You’re not afraid of what I can’t see

I can feel you, I believe you
When you tell me it’s ok
I know you’re trying, if you’re lying
It don’t matter anyway
Cuz you make me stronger, stronger when you take
You make me stronger, stronger when you take
When you take.
