Lyrics

Undefined

Written By: Claire Domingue

i used to think
i needed a name for everything
i used to say
i wonder how we'll end up someday

now we're drifting in between the lines
and i don't wonder anymore if you're really mine
cause i know things will fade in time
and till then we'll float on undefined

it's nothing new
and there's nothing solid to hold on to
i still can't let go
at least it's better than being alone

now we're drifting in between the lines
and i don't wonder anymore if you're really mine
cause i know things will fade in time
and till then we'll float on undefined

i've tried walking away
but i run back everytime when you say
that you miss me
now i don't know where i'm supposed to be

now we're drifting in between the lines
and i don't wonder anymore if you're really mine
cause i know things will fade in time
and till then we'll float on undefined

i try to fight my feelings
i don't see a future building here
no no nothing's clear

now we're drifting in between the lines
and i don't wonder anymore if you're really mine
cause i know things will fade in time
and till then we'll float on undefined

now we're drifting in between the lines
and i don't wonder anymore if you're really mine
cause i know things will fade in time
and till then we'll float on undefined
and till then we'll float on undefined
and till then we'll float on undefined

Not Your Fault

Written By: Claire Domingue

you came home for the first time
in quite a while
everything reminds you
of how he made you smile
but that's all over now

you thought he couldn't hurt you
if you shut him out
you finally felt happy
you could do without
him in your life

but somehow he found his way back in
and made you start all over again

but dry your eyes
God has a plan
maybe right now you're not so sure
that you can love anyone anymore
but I promise He's gonna stop the pain you're in

it might take time
to leave where you've been
and even though there is no easy cure
just remember how you felt before
and trust that God's gonna mend your heart again

he told you that he loved you
and she meant nothing
but if he really meant it
why couldn't he leave
her side

you told him it was over
a long time ago
but hearing his voice still made
old feelings flow
till you found out he lied

you never knew before how much pain could sting
funny how one boy can shatter everything

but dry your eyes
God has a plan
maybe right now you're not so sure
that you can love anyone anymore
but I promise He's gonna stop the pain you're in

it might take time
to leave where you've been
and even though there is no easy cure
just remember how you felt before
and trust that God's gonna mend your heart again

you're mad at yourself cause you believed him
you hate yourself cause you still love him
but it's not your fault
so stand up tall

and dry your eyes
God has a plan
maybe right now you're not so sure
that you can love anyone anymore
but I promise He's gonna stop the pain you're in

it might take time
to leave where you've been
and even though there is no easy cure
just remember how you felt before
and trust that God's gonna mend your heart again
trust that God's gonna mend your heart
trust that God's gonna mend your heart
trust that God's gonna mend your heart again

Please Don't

Written By: Claire Domingue

please don't tell me that we're through
weren't we happy what did i do
to make you go away
i've never known this pain before
and i don't wanna feel it anymore
why can't things stay the same

and though the rain is falling
in the dark of night
i know there's light somewhere
and it will be alright

tears pour down from my eyes
i'm trying so hard not to cry

but i fail
i can hear what they all say
i can't stand to see you this way
but i know this is goodbye

and though the rain is falling
in the dark of night
i know there's light somewhere
and it will be alright

la da da...

I heard a lot of rumors never thought they were true
until i heard them straight from you
now i'm in disarray
i know this happens all the time
but i thought you were smart enough to keep in line
it don't hurt only you

and though the rain is falling
in the dark of night
i know there's light somewhere
and it will be alright it will be alright

and though the rain is falling
in the dark of night
i know there's light somewhere
and it will be alright

just say a prayer and it will be alright
just say a prayer and it will be alright
just say a prayer and it will be alright

Time

Written By: Claire Domingue

don't you think it's a little too soon
to act like it's all okay
i hope we'll get back to where we were
but it's not going to happen today

maybe it's a little easier
for you to act like nothing's wrong
since you never really even cared
but my heart's in this song

oh why didn't i see it coming
i shouldn't have tried to make this into something
i'd rather move on than let my regrets
consume me but i'm not ready yet
i promise i'll be fine
all i need is time

you ask if i still want to stay
as i walk to the door
i tell you that its better this way
you've never seen me cry before

oh why didn't i see it coming
i shouldn't have tried to make this into something
i'd rather move on than let my regrets
consume me but i'm not ready yet
i promise i'll be fine
all i need is time

i can see
your fingers on these keys
and as i sit here, i can't help but miss you

oh why didn't i see it coming
i shouldn't have tried to make this into something

oh why didn't i see it coming
i shouldn't have tried to make this into something
i'd rather move on than let my regrets
consume me but i'm not ready yet
i promise i'll be fine

oh why didn't i see it coming
i shouldn't have tried to make this into something
i'd rather move on than let my regrets
consume me but i'm not ready yet
i promise i'll be fine
i promise i'll be fine
i promise i'll be fine
all i need is time

there's not enough flame left in these embers
there's nothing we can do
but every time i hear a long december
i'll still think of you
