CARRIED AWAY

Written By: BAYADERA

What they say, what they say now
its in your head, its in your head now
whatcha say, whatcha say now
your dripping blood from your tongue now
what they say, what they say now
your heavy heart is weighing you down
whatcha say, whatcha say now
your words are bleeding out now

Get carried away with emotion
saying yah eh ya, ya eh ya eh ya
Get carried away the the motion
saying yah eh yah eh ya
Get carried away with emotion
saying yah eh ya, ya eh ya eh ya
Get carried away the the motion
saying yah eh yah eh ya

What they say, what they say now
its turned around its on you now
whatcha say, whatcha say now
your dripping blood from your tongue now
what they say, what they say now
its unfair theyre blaming you now
whatcha say, watcha say now
your words are bleeding out now

Get carried away with emotion
saying yah eh ya, ya eh ya eh ya
Get carried away the the motion
saying yah eh yah eh ya
Get carried away with emotion
saying yah eh ya, ya eh ya eh ya
Get carried away the the motion
saying yah eh yah eh ya

Get carried away with emotion
saying yah eh ya, ya eh ya eh ya
Get carried away the the motion
saying yah eh yah eh ya
Get carried away with emotion
saying yah eh ya, ya eh ya eh ya
Get carried away the the motion
saying ya eh ya ya eh ya eh ya
ya eh ya ya eh ya eh ya
ya eh ya ya eh ya eh ya
ya eh ya ya eh ya eh ya

SUNNY SUNDAY

Written By: BAYADERA

I'm getting sick of thinking of you
all my thoughts are making me blue
on this sunny day
sunny sunday afternoon
starts to fade to gloom
the clouds roll in to hide my face

Let the rain fall on me
to hide the tears in my eyes
Let the rain fall on me
to hide the tears that I cry

I keep moving with the storm
the wind it blows so warm
running its fingers through my hair
the sound consoling me
lulling me to sleep
maybe ill wake up new in the morning
I'm getting sick of thinking of you
all my thoughts are making me blue
on this sunny day
sunny sunday afternoon
starts to fade to gloom
the clouds roll in to hide my face

Let the rain fall on me
to hide the tears in my eyes
Let the rain fall on me
to hide the tears that I cry
let the rain fall
let the rain fall down on me
let the rain fall

Lavender storms filling the sky
with sprinkles of thunder
and flashes of light
and all of the moments are making me stay
but here comes a flood thatll wash them away

Let the rain fall on me
to hide the tears in my eyes
Let the rain fall on me
to hide the tears that I cry
let the rain fall
let the rain fall down on me
let the rain fall
let the rain fall down on me

FEELS LIKE

Written By: BAYADERA

So carelessly, thrown violently
its just the beginning
it started up, that angry blaze
that started ripping through me
with all the time that passed
and every blade of grass
giving way underneath me
then the color changed
turning charcoal grey
feel of the end beginning
just in time to wake me
the ashes started raining down
running through so blindly
I finally made it out

It lit up the sky, so long ago
but I dont remember if I even felt
it lit up the sky, so long ago
but i dont remember what it feels like

So softly now, its flowing through me now
slowly drowning out the fire
wash away the pain from the dire flame
leaving this scorched beauty
and out of ashes grow something beautiful
new life gives new meaning
but then the color changed
turning charcoal grey
feel of the end beginning
just in time to wake me
the ashes started raining down
running through so blindly
I finally made it out

it lit up the sky, so long ago
but I dont remember if I even felt
it lit up the sky, so long ago
but I dont remember what it feels like

It lit up the sky, so long ago
but I dont remember if I even felt
it lit up the sky, so long ago
but I dont remember if I even felt
it lit up the sky, so long ago
but I dont remember what it feels like
what it feels like
what it feels like
what it feels like

THE RAIN

Written By: BAYADERA

My heart starts pounding in my chest
just a quick look to see behind the mask
can I put a face on my distress
I had no idea that it was you
but I should have known, I should have seen
what was right in front of me
I could have been I should have been
safe with you all along

Now here I am again, Im standing in the rain
waiting for someone to come and rescue me
Now here I am again, Im standing in the rain
waiting for someone to come and rescue me

Theres a light now shining in the night
a spark so bright that its lighting up the dark
so strong and invincible to me
my super hero in training
but I should have known, I should have seen
what was right in front of me
I could have been I should have been
safe with you all along

Now here I am again, Im standing in the rain
waiting for someone to come and rescue me
Now here I am again, Im standing in the rain
waiting for someone to come and rescue me

The further I get the stronger I am
the closer you are the weaker I get
the further I am the stronger I get
the closer you are the weaker I am

but I should have known, I should have seen
what was right in front of me
I should have been I could have been
safe with you all along

Now here I am again, Im standing in the rain
waiting for someone to come and rescue me
Now here I am again, Im standing in the rain
waiting for someone to come and rescue me
