Lyrics

I Want To Hold Your Hand

Written By: The Beatles

Yeah I'll, tell you something
I think you'll understand
When I say that something
I want to hold your hand

I want to hold your hand (x2)

Oh please say to me
You'll let me be your friend
And please say to me
You'll let me hold your hand

I want to hold your hand (x2)

And when I touch you I feel happy inside
It's such a feeling that my love, I can't hide
I can't hide (x2)

Yeah you got that something
I think you'll understand
When I feel that something
I want to hold your hand (x4)

Jealous Of The Angeles

Written By: Jenn Bostic

I didn't know today would be our last
Or that I'd have to say goodbye to you so fast
I'm so numb, I can't feel anymore
Praying you'd just walk back through that door
And tell me that I’m only dreaming
You're not really gone as long as I believe

There will be another angel
Around the throne tonight
Your love lives on inside of me,
I will hold on tight
It's not my place to question,
Only God knows why
I'm just jealous of the angels
Around the throne tonight

You always made my troubles feel so small
And you were always there to catch me when I'd fall
In a world where heroes come and go
Well God just took the only one I know
So I'll hold you as close as I can
Longing for the day, when I see your face again
But until then

God must need another angel
Around the throne tonight
Your love lives strong on inside of me
And I will hold on tight
It's not my place to question
Only God knows why
I'm just jealous of the angels
Around the throne tonight

Singin' hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Singin' hallelujah
Hallelujah
I'm just jealous of the angels
Around the throne
Tonight

Imaginary Friends

Written By: Sara Gordon

Imaginary friends are always nice to keep around
In case your real friends start to drown inside their lies
Keep them tucked behind your back, for when those one guys start to lack
I keep them by on the off chance that they’ll all die

You make them up inside, to dictate where they will reside
So they can’t run off on their own to just stop by
You’d think you’d be prepared for when they break a double dare
Don't hold your breath for them or baby you might die

Sometimes I wonder why I should even try
I’ve got someone here who’s on my side
You’re the one who’s spitting lies
You’ve got mystery in your eyes

I’ve got that one thing that’s on my side
Why oh why, you hypnotize
Let us see who’s on the rise
I might have a sidekick who’d help to cure me when I’m sick

But there are times I start to doubt all that’s in store
They get me really down, it’s a cliché, I start to frown
Then I remember I have something you would die for
I don't care why you say I’ll, I’ll rub it in

I’ve got some one here whose on my side
You’re the one who’s spitting lies
You’ve got nothing on the side
I’ve got that one thing that’s on my side

My oh my, it’s a sunshine
Let’s see now who’s on the rise
It’s a loss when you can’t trust
All the ones who've drawn a fuss

Guess I’ll just go off and cry
I’ve got someone here who’s on my side
You’re the one who’s spitting lies
You’ve got mystery in your eyes

I’ve got that one thing that’s on my side
Why oh why, what’s with these lies
Let us see who’s on the rise

La, la, la…

Fool Of Myself

Written By: Sara Gordon

I’ve made a fool of myself over you
Let’s hope I’ve made a fool of myself it’s so true
I wander if I can ever redeem myself now
I wander if I’ll ever lead my way down to hey-yah

I’ve made a fool of myself over you
Let’s hope I’ve made a fool of myself it’s so true
I wander if I can ever redeem myself now
I wander if I’d ever lead my way down to hey-yah, ah

These words that I speak don't come out quite right when I spit them out in space
And then the steps that I take come off like stumbles to which we all can relate

I’ve made a fool of myself over you
Let’s hope I’ve made a fool of myself it’s so true
I wander if I can ever redeem myself now
I wander if I’ll ever lead my way down to hey-yah, ah

Cause, everyone is in the same space, trying to work it out
Cause, it’s a totally insane place, where all of us have our doubts
Not sure if you would try to follow, all the way to where
For all the times you tried to mimic it was all too much to bare

I’ve been blinded and misguided just stumbling in the dark
Don’t think you can see though my heart
I’ve been wishing and just praying for anything to start
Please make it start

I’ve made a fool of myself over you
Let’s hope I’ve made a fool of myself it’s so true
I wander if I can ever redeem myself now
I wander if I’d ever lead my way down to hey-yah

I’ve made a fool of myself over you.
