Lyrics

Nothing in My CLoset

Written By: robin lore

I will watch you as you walk away. 'cause you don't need me anymore. I followed you into another place, where I could hardly see. You heard me knocking on your door. Now you and me just need to fade away. To another place in time. Falling backwards to another day, I opened up my eyes, saw you standing in the light. .
Chorus: I am looking through my closet, but nothing seems to fit. So I hold onto these memories of all the things I miss. Of All the things I miss, there's nothing in my closet. There's nothing in my closet
Now I am waiting here beside myself, for this moment to arrise. Moving forward through an open book that I will write in time. I keep these notes fresh in my mind. Feels like I'm walking on a wire and I don't know what lies beneath. It's really hard to keep my footing as I slip into the past, grabbing all those things I missed.
Chorus:
So just close the door behind you and please don't look for the key. 'Cause I have changed the locks and moved away to a place I need to be, much to far ahead for you to see.
Chorus: I am looking through my closet, but nothing seems to fit. So I hold onto these memories of all the things I miss... I'm still looking through my closet, but nothing seems to fit. So, I hold onto these memories of all the things I miss... I miss... of all the things that I miss... of all the things I miss, all the things I miss.

Let It Go

Written By: Robin Lore

Every night I try to sleep. Actually I just lie awake in my bed. Cause every night I try to figure out all those thoughts that race throughout my head.
Chorus: You might like what you see if you open up your eyes. There's so much that you're missing and you might just be surprised at how good things could be if you just let them flow. Stop living in the past and let it go...JUST LET IT GO.
Every night I scratch the surface of your mind, but I don't make a mark or even a small line inside your head or in your heart, why don't you finish what you start. Stop running backwards through this maze because your making me insane...
Chorus:You might like what you see if you open up your eyes. There's so much that you're missing and you might just be surprised at how good things could be if you just let them flow. Stop living in the past and let it go...JUST LET IT GO.
Every night I spend with you. Is just another night that I need to work through. Just when it seems like you and I are getting close. You close the door and run away when I start feeling things the most and...
Chorus: You might like what you see if you open up your eyes. There's so much that you're missing and you might just be surprised at how good things could be if you just let them flow. Stop living in the past and let it go...JUST LET IT GO. Just let it go, just let it go....just let it go oo oo LET IT GO

I DOn't Know Why

Written By: Robin Lore

I don't know why, I just sat there and listened to all of your lies and I... I don't know why, I did nothing but watch as the days passed before my eyes. I don't know why, all those words flow like water right outta my mind and I, I don't know why. I don't know why.
I don't know why, I can't make up my mind and decide what is real and I, I don't know why. There is so much confusion on what I should feel and I, I don't know why. I'm the one with the cards but I don't wanna deal right now. I don't know why, I don't know why.
Chorus: I don't know why. I don't know why I love you. I don't know why. I don't know why, but I do...
I don't know why, it's so easy for me to fall back into you and I, I don't know why. I hate those things that I've done, but won't change what I do and I, I don't know why. I tell myself all these lies and believe they are true and I, I don't know why. I don't know why...
Chorus: I don't know why. I don't know why I love you. I don't know why. I don't know why, but I do...
I don't know why. You keep breaking my heart like it's made outta glass and I, I don't know why. I have so many questions but won't ever ask you and...I don't know why I keep thinking that this time the moment will last and I, I don't know why, I don't know why
Chorus:I don't know why. I don't know why I love you. I don't know why. I don't know why, but I do...
I DON'T KNOW WHY I DON"T KNOW WHY......
I don't know why I love you, but I do and I don't know why

Sorry's All I have To Say

Written By: Robin Lore

Hey Hey, Sorry's All I have to say... Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey.
I don't know, just what to say. A lot is going on and you can't hear me anyway. I'm not sure of what to do. My life is such a mess and I don't wanna mess with you.
Hey Hey, Sorry's all I don't feel that way. Hey hey hey hey hey.
I reminisce about the past. Reading letters written about a love that never lasted. So I stop and think of you. I know you're good for me, but I can't seem to let you through.
Hey Hey. Sorry's all I have to say. Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey
I know it's hard for you to see the constant battle that's been going on inside of me. I tell myself to let you in, but everytime I try I end up back where I began.
Hey Hey, Sorry I don't feel that way.
Hey hey hey hey hey
Hey Hey Sorry's all I have to say Hey hey hey hey hey
Bridge:
And it all comes down to me and I'm wondering what you see, cause my life's a wreck. Each day I don't know where I'll be the next. And this conversation burns. No matter how it turns. I'm no good for you , each day I wonder when you're gonna learn.
So many nights you're in my dreams. the perfect kiss good night is not always the way it seems and I really hope someday you'll find exactly what you want and someone who is worth your time.
Hey hey, Sorry's all I have to say. hey hey hey hey hey
hey hey, sorry I don't feel that way. hey hey hey hey hey
Hey Hey, Sorry's all I have to say hey hey hey hey hey

Fickle Girl

Written By: Robin Lore

Every single night I lie awake in thought. Staring at the cieling wondering what went wrong. I think about you everytime I close my eyes. The turning in my stomache as I realize....
Chorus: That you are just another boy to me. And nothing that you do will set me free. I'm broken and I'm empty deep inside. I tried so hard to tell you I really tried.
Every single night you call me on the phone and you keep thinking that I'm sitting here alone. But there is always someone else beside me. And he's the one i run to almost constantly. But...
Chorus: He is just another boy to me. And nothing that he does will set me free. I'm broken and I'm empty deep inside. I tried so hard to tell you I really tried.
Now there are certain things that you have failed to see. I told you many times don't put your faith in me. But you keep thinking I'm the one who'll be your world. I hate to tell you boy I'm just a Fickle Girl...
And you are just another game to me. Nothing that you do will set me free. I'm broken and I'm enpty deep inside. I tried so hard to tell you I really tried. That you are just another boy to me. And nothing that you do will set me free. I'm broken and I'm empty deep inside. I tried so hard to tell you I really tried. I tired so hard to tell you I really tried. Never seemed to matter how hard I try.

ROBIN LORE: Fickle Girl

Set List

Typical set list is most of the songs off of my new CD. A few songs off of Dear Diary, at least 1 new song (if not more) that hasn't been recorded nor heard yet and possibly my own rendition of an 80's cover tune or random rap song that should never be done acoustically, yet somehow is amazing! My sets range from 20 min. to 3 and 1/2 hours with mostly, if not all original music.
