Lyrics

First Day of School

Written By: Brea Lawrenson

The summer was over I was back to school
It had been a good one I was looking real cool
Down at the lake I fell in love twice
I was ready for anything yeah except advice

And he came walking down the hall looking so cool
Jeans riding on his hips his eyes a deep blue
I dropped my books my heart skipped
And when he bent down to help me he touched my hand yeah

And he said what’s your name
Hey I asked you first- my cool and confidence it usually works
Then came the words that knocked me on my ass
He said I’m Mr. Connor and this is my class

Oh on the first day of school I hit on Mr. Connor
I fell fast yeah I fell so hard
He got to me right from the start
Mr. Connor did it good yeah he stole my heart

I don’t give up easy I knew it was a lie
He looked so young in his faded Levis
I said lets skip yeah we could just bail
He said if I did that they have to put me in jail

It was too true he was a teacher
It’s not fair he could’ve been a keeper
Graduation is so far way
And I can’t wait for that day

If I'm Not Here Tomorrow

Written By: B. Lawrenson/J. Turner

If I’m Not Here Tomorow
B. Lawrenson/J.Turner

If I’m not here tomorrow
Would you understand why I left you this way
‘Cause if I’m not here tomorrow
Babe, it doesn’t mean I didn’t wanna stay.

‘Cause this life I have to follow
And I gotta handle it day by day so
If I’m not here tomorrow baby
Would you love me anyway

‘Cause it’s a scary ride to live by
But I’ll make it anyway
So if I’m not here, if I’m not here
Baby, I found my way

I’m living these days like a wonderer
And baby I’m so lost in this place
When I don’t know what to do anymore
Is it ok if I lose my way

‘Cause it’s a scary ride to live by
But I’ll make it anyway
So if I’m not here, if I’m not here
Baby, I found my way

These dreams you thought I’d never find
Well they’ll never die
Take what you want and leave the rest of me behind
‘cause it’s about the ride, about the ride.

If I’m not here tomorrow
Would you understand why I left you this way
‘Cause if I’m not here tomorrow
Baby, would you love me, yeah, baby, would you love me anyway
Would you love me anyway

Black & Purple

Written By: Brea Lawrenson & Braiden Turner

He has to stand up and be strong
To show everyone he belongs
He has to fight to live his life
He has to hide his pain inside

And everyone is scared of him
But that’s the way that he’s gotta live
Do you think he feels his pain?
There’s no justice in this game

When he falls asleep at night
He knows the morning won’t be bright
Cause he is living in a hell
Yeah, he is trapped inside himself

But is it worth everything that he said it would be?
Has he become the enemy?
Will he ever live in a world of peace?
He’s gotta wash away these black burdens he feels
He’s gotta cover all the purple scars only he can heal

He makes that guy feel so small
Can’t hear his silent cries at all
It’s wrong to let down his guard
Cause in this world you can’t have a heart

His days are long
He wants to die
He knows that he’s a different guy
When will he take of his mask?
And leave everything in the past?
Leave it in the past
Leave it in the past

(There was a time)
Life was so much easier then I know

(A memory left behind)
I can’t remember what it’s like

(I worked so hard)
Tryin’ to make everyone bow down to me

But as hard as I try only black and purple bruises
Ache behind my eyes
Ache behind my eyes

But is it worth everything that he said it would be?
Have I become the enemy?
Am I gonna live in a world of peace?
‘Cause I washed these black burdens out of me
Yeah I healed all the purple scars everyone could see
I found me

I'm Worth It

Written By: B. Lawrenson/S. Chhangur/R. Moir


I think I’m worth it
I’m worth all of the good things you say to me yeah
I think I’m worth it
I’m worth all of the things that I can be oh

Yeah I don’t care where you are
I don’t care that you’re chillin’
I don’t care what your friends say
And that they’re waiting
I don’t care what your friends say
That they’re waiting

I’m worth it you know it
Yeah you make it so real
That I like what you do
I’m worth it oh
And I know it for sure that I’m perfect for you
I’m worth it yeah

I know you want it
But around your friends you’re too scared to say
That she comes first with me
And I wanna be with her everyday oh

They can say I’m a bitch
You know I can read lips
But I don’t care what your friends say and
That they’re waiting
I don’t care what your friends say
And that they’re waiting

I’d do anything for you
You’d do anything for me
And we’d be so much better
If your friends just leave

I Will Be

Written By: Brea Lawrenson & Joe Turner

What I didn’t know was what I wanted so bad
And what I didn’t want was all I had yeah yeah
And I can’t help but taste these tears that I have inside
And I know now that I have to fly

‘Cause I will be across the ocean
And I will be on the desert sands
I will be anywhere I have to just to be who I am
I will be worth a thousand skies
I will be ready to fly
I will be on my every dream till the day I die
That’s what I will be
That’s what I will be

These days it seems oh that I don’t belong
And what I’ve done it feels so wrong
And nobody knows me no one hears me crying deep inside
And at times I feel all I can do is hide

Some days my dreams are so far
Some days I can’t see past the clouds
Some days I gotta get back on my feet somehow
Some days oh I am so scared
Some days I just wanna leave
Some days it’s burning a hole inside of me

If I'm Not Here Tomorrow

There'll Come A Day

Written By: Brea Lawrenson

V1: I went away to get out of here
And to escape all the noise in my ears

V2: And being for from where you are
Made it real made it all very clear
And I saw the fire in his eyes
And it helped me to realize
That it was time for a change
And nothing would ever be the same

Chorus: There'll come a day, you're gonna want my love again
There'll come a day, you're gonna want my love again

V3: I walked all the streets of this town
To find that you're no where around
It feel's just like a bad dream
When I awake I don't feel anything

Chorus: There'll come a day, I won't make the same mistake
There'll come a day, your memory will fade
There'll come a day, you'll want my love again
There'll come a day, but you're gonna be too late

Bridge: Your laughter is still in my mind
You're with me all of the time
And I can't fight anymore
So what do I fall in love for?

V4: These words and this melody
Are the only thing that's real to me

Chorus: There'll come a day, you're gonna want my love again
There'll come a day, but you're gonna be too late
There'll come a day, your memory will fade
There'll come a day, when I won't run away
I won't run away, away.
