Lyrics

What I

Written By: Noush Skaugen

Judge me on your first impression
Look me up and down before you say
You’re not quite what we’re looking for
So turn around, walk through that door
Just cause I won’t kiss ass cause that’s how you operate

What I, What I, weigh I’m ice cold frozen
What I, What I, the sun turns my faith golden
What I, What I, everybody thinks they see, an example freek, in me

What is you looking at my face
Do you see something hiding of you in me
You conform to what’s called ‘normal”
Lost inside building your Berlin wall
But that old thing was knocked down a long time ago.

What I, What I, weigh I’m ice cold frozen
What I, What I, the sun turns my faith golden
What I, What I, everybody thinks they see, an example freek, in me

Scream at the start of a complication, Walked in the center of expectation, Choke when I’m given an estimation, What I
Talk in the middle of confrontation, Bruise when I'm given an indentation, Sent to the war for cold impatience, What I

I’m not refined beauty I’m raw
What you see is what you get with me....

What I, What I, weigh I’m ice cold frozen
What I, What I, the sun turns my faith golden
What I, What I, everybody thinks they see, an example freek, in me
What I, What I, weigh I’m ice cold frozen
What I, What I, the sun turns my faith golden
What I, What I, everybody thinks they see, an example freek, in me

Adeline

Written By: Noush Skaugen

Verse 1:
You find yourself waiting in Line, If only to pass the time
Are you lonely Adeline
You find yourself talking again, To yourself again my friend
Are you lonely

Pre Chorus:
Adeline’s Been so damn lost without you boy
But she’s been lost before, She’ll find her way back and close the door.

Chorus:
Let’s take a walk, Let’s find a day
Let’s take the time to find the right words to say
Let’s take a step, Room to breathe
Let’s take a moment to become you and me

Verse 2:
You find yourself sitting at home, Watching movies getting stoned
Is it lonely, Is it lonely Adeline
Every scene is about love, now you ask “is that enough?”
Are you lonely,

Pre-Chorus
Adeline’s been dreaming all her life of Juliet
But then her Romeo broke her heart, and now she’s wondering what is left?

Bridge:
How I wish you’d (just) leave your residence in my mind
Cause with every stone, I turnover a sign
When all I wanna do is ..

Take a walk
Let’s find a day
Time to see
Let’s take a moment for us to simply be
Let’s take a step, Room to breathe
Let’s take our time to become you and me

Chorus out:
Let’s take a walk, Let’s find a day
Let’s take the time to find the right words to say
Let’s take a step, Room to breathe
Let’s take a moment to become you and me

Not Gonna Give You The Satisfaction

Written By: Noush Skaugen & Michael Logen

NOT GONNA GIVE YOU THE SATISFACTION

Verse 1:
I know enough by now,
to know exactly how you think all this is gonna go.
You watched me fall apart,
then gathered up my heart and hung the pieces on your door.

Pre-Chorus
But there's one thing I'm not gonna give to you.

Chorus:
I'm not gonna give you the satisfaction
Of getting a reaction, I'm turning into stone.
I'm not gonna let you see me crying,
Even if I'm dying, I'm walking out alone, alone, alone
I'm not breaking, I'm not breaking
I'm turning into stone

Verse 2:
I lost myself somewhere,
Between Denver and your stare, and now I'm paying the price
A puppet on your string,
You've taken everything you've wanted form me till tonight.

Pre:
But there's one thing I'm not gonna give to you.

Chorus:
I'm not gonna give you the satisfaction
Of getting a reaction, I'm turning into stone.
I'm not gonna let you see me crying,
Even if I'm dying, I'm walking out alone, alone, alone
I'm not breaking, I'm not breaking, I'm not breaking
I'm turning into stone

I'm not gonna give you the satisfaction
Of getting a reaction, I'm turning into stone.
I'm not gonna let you see me crying,
Even if I'm dying, I'm walking out alone, alone, alone
I'm not breaking, I'm not breaking, I'm not breaking, I'm not breaking
I'm turning into stone

Beautifulize

Written By: Noush Skaugen

I'm looking at our picture, The one we took last year,
Down by the sea.
You were staring across the ocean, waves of crashing motion,
Is how it seemed to me.

Now I sit at the station, waiting for a ghost,
then I hear our song on the radio,
Can't see your face, but I can hear your voice,
And what you said to me.

Saying you must go, same lies you told me,
To make me believe.
"please don't let go", that's what you'd always,
seem to ask of me.
Ooo Ooo, It was beautiful,
When I looked into your eyes,
You had me hypnotized,
With your beautiful lies.

All of my conceptions, of how we used to be,
I see the truth now, it's set me free,
I must stand here, out here on my own,
Cause I don't need your love make believe

I can see your sunshine, I can see your rain,
I see your heart like it was yesterday.
But I'll keep moving Cause, I don't want anything,
From you and your salty dreams

Saying you must go, same lies you told me,
To make me believe.
"please don't let go", that's what you'd always,
seem to ask of me.
Ooo Ooo, It was beautiful,
When I looked into your eyes,
Yeah, you had me hypnotized,
With your beautiful lies.

Thought we going somewhere, seems we were stuck in nowhere
You were not the, man I thought that you, could be.

Saying you must go, same lies you told me,
To make me believe.
"please don't let go", that's what you'd always,
seem to ask of me.
Ooo Ooo, yeah, It was beautiful,
When I looked into your eyes,
Yeah, you had me hypnotized,
With your beautiful lies.
Ooo Ooo, yeah, It was beautiful,
When I looked into your eyes,
Yeah, you had me hypnotized,
With your beautiful lies.
