Lyrics

How Much

Written By: Ashley Crnic

Don't tell me what's wrong, I know already
I know you've been keeping secrets from me
Don't take me for a fool, I can see right through you
I can't handle this game so tell me your secret play

What a shame what a shame, what more can I do
every passing day leaves only a few
you gotta tell me if it's real gotta tell me what you feel
cuz now it's time for me to say

I don't wanna let to you go
but life's too short to know
if you'll be the one for me
or if we'll be a family
I don't wanna think about it now
it's too early in life to see,
to see how much you really mean to me

Why did I stay for so long, always left me all alone
that's alright I don't care because I never stayed home
I've got a secret play to, and I'm using it on you
no worries anymore left you a note on the doore

what a shame, what a shame, what else can I do
every passing day is better without you
don't tell me if it's real, don't tell me what you feel
cuz now it's time for me to say

Chorus

What more could I say these days
so much time's gone by
can't be all the things I needed
it's to late don't even try

Chorus (x2)

Full Grown

Written By: Ashley Crnic

I like fast cars, I like movie stars
and how you look, I cannot lie
there are people in my face pointing out my mistakes
just take me back to my wonderland

Chorus:
Don't like it when I cry, just press rewind
use those stories of my life, and live your own
enjoy me while I'm young, don't use foolish reason
enjoy me while I'm young, before I'm full grown

One day will come, they realized they were wrong
nothing matters anymore, everything turns into war
angels creeping up the stairs, taking people with them
I'm not ready to go, I'm not ready to go

Chorus

What you doin' tonight, want to re-live our lives
please say yes this time, cuz I want you to be mine

please say yes, please say yes, oh say yes, just say yes

Chorus

The Messenger

Written By: Ashley Crnic

A coward tells a thousand lies, he'll never look you in the eye
they say it's all in the state of mind to comfort your lonely life
learning lessons behind deep lies
with those lost out of their minds
Pre-chorus:
see these faces lost in races
told whether or not to speak
waiting for a new day again

Chorus:
Fallen hands, fallen lives
heroes come within, hold strong willed minds
lived failed glories to earn their pride
open the world to human cries

Living in a lifetime of grubbiness and war
memories people remember, memories people ignore
I live among the shadows and haunt their very state
where has the love all gone to, it was lost in all these wars

Pre-chorus

Chorus

Living in a lifetime, is harder to live sane
when people watch and don't respond, but leave in all the pain
do you know how hard it is, do you know how hard I try
could ever understand what keeps me satisfied

That is all that I am and all that I can be I am no more
I am just but one messenger

Chorus
See these faces lost in races told whether or not to speak again
waiting for a new day again, waiting for a new day again

Good Times Go

Written By: Ashley Crnic

I'm losing myself in these arms
I can't stop wanting more
I'm off track in my heart
I don't know what I'm looking for

and good times go, you and I both know
the sky was green the grass was blue
we were wild and free
but times have changed, since you've gone away
and I know what to do if you come back for me

You took my heart, you took everything
now I'm better off alone
you took my soul, you took everything
now there is nothing left in me

and good times go, you and I both know
the sky was green the grass was blue
we were wild and free
but times have changed, since you've gone away
and I know what to do if you come back for me

I saw you I met you I kissed you I loved you
now there's nothing left for me to discover
now looking back at the things that have broken me
I know I will be strong

Chorus

Back to You

Written By: Ashley Crnic

There's something I have to give to you
doesn't require anything but these feelings
I've got you under my skin like a song that
won't get out my head, get out of my head

and I'll see you in my dreams
I'll let go of everything
why's it so hard to breath when you won't even look at me
when you won't even look at me

I can't sit still I'm so anxious
I can't get sleep I just can't eat
life's no good I'm going crazy
I need to make it back to you, need to make it back to you

and I'll see you in my dreams
I'll let go of everything
why's it so hard to breath when you won't even look at me
when you won't even look at me

and I'll always look back to you
look back to those days
tiger lilies and monsoons crashing on with the waves
those were you and me, those were you and me

and I'll see you in my dreams
I'll let go of everything
why's it so hard to breath when you won't even look at me
when you won't even look at me
and I'll see you in my dreams
I'll let go of everything
why's it so hard to breath when you won't even look at me
when you won't even look at me
look at me, why don't you just
look at me, I'm telling you to
look at me, look at me
look at me

Head Rush

Written By: Ashley Crnic

Sneaking out the window just to see you again
doing things I don't do feelings I'm not used to
this feelings giving me adrenaline
I've got a head rush I feel it in my blood stream
you're like this new secret drug to me
right now you're all I need

and you've got me feeling so high now
and you've got me working so hard now
Chorus: (x2)
it's Friday night I wanna get crazy
might dance get loud or get naked
shake shake shake shake what my momma gave me
shouldn't do that I'm supposed to be a lady
*(2nd ending) but right now I wanna get stupid

I'm breaking rules just to have a good time
I'm dancing on the bar I'm swinging from the rafters
every boy I see I'm on their minds
na na na na nana I'm glad I have a boyfriend
my boyfriend thinks I'm complicated
well too bad that's the way I like it

and you've got me feeling so high now
and you've got me working so hard now
Chorus: (x2)
it's Friday night I wanna get crazy
might dance get loud or get naked
shake shake shake shake what my momma gave me
shouldn't do that I'm supposed to be a lady
*(2nd ending) but right now I wanna get stupid

everybody just get in line if you wanna have a crazy time
if you get the rush then use it
go on and just get stupid stupid

Chorus: (x2)
it's Friday night I wanna get crazy
might dance get loud or get naked
shake shake shake shake what my momma gave me
shouldn't do that I'm supposed to be a lady
* (2nd ending) but right now I wanna get stupid
I wanna get stupid
come on let's get stupid
