Lyrics

The Easiest Thing

Written By: Aimie Laws

Well I woke up with a look on my face & I didn’t know what to do
So I had me one last cigarette hoping to forget about you
The easiest thing that I had to do became the hardest thing when I fell for you Wondering what in the hell I'm gonna do, Ya Ya Ya

Why did I have to fall for you, tried so hard not to think about you
But I could not help myself you’re the one where I can be myself
And ya ya ya I don’t think he knows
And ya ya ya baby I can’t show you that I love you, that I love you
Oh oh oh

The easiest thing that I had to do became the hardest thing when I fell for you
And did you know that every time you leave I brake down start cry’n on my knees
And every night when I go home, pretend I’m okay just being alone
It’s not ok, I don’t want to go on this way

And ya ya ya I don’t think he knows and ya ya ya baby I can’t show you that I love you, oh that I love you

Oh oh oh

Why did I have to fall for you, tried so hard not to think about you
But I could not help myself you’re the one where I can be myself
And ya ya ya I don’t think he knows
And ya ya ya baby I can’t show you that I love you, that I love you
Oh oh oh

Only Human

Written By: Aimie Laws

Some time’s I feel like I’ve lost my mind in the ugliness
Some days I feel like I don’t have a clue what I’m doing here
Waiting to wake up; straighten up here
But at the end of the day we`re all just here, ya we`re all here
Through all this confusion I know who I am and that I’m real
And some time’s we all get scared, every now and then
It’s human nature to question ourselves some times
But it’s human compassion that drys our eyes, so dry your eyes

We are only human, I am only one.
We all search for reasons from up above
We all feel the same things, plus you make`s more than one
We`re all made from flesh and blood, we`re only human
We`re only human

Some time’s in life we all just need to be told that it will be alright
And some time’s we try too hard to make things right
Through empty days and lonely nights, worn out smiles and wasted lives
We look ourselves in the eyes and try to see
Who we are where we’re from, it gets hard not always fun
But we’re still here now that it’s done and I know....I’m not the only one

We are only human, I am only one.
We all search for reasons from up above
We all feel the same things, plus you make`s more than one
We`re all made from flesh and blood, we`re only human
We`re only humanwe`re only human...we`re only human...

Hello Goodbye

Written By: Aimie Laws

Give me something to believe in
It’s always something next to nothing
You hear me screaming am I breathing
I cannot clean my skin and
Would you touch me if I asked you
Or are you afraid of me and
Let me feel you let me show you
What life is supposed to be like and

I go and say hello as you’re waving good bye to me
Well I guess I never really tried until you said goodbye to me
Hello Goodbye, Hello Goodbye x2

We are all here on a one way ride
You take a wrong turn and it’s all over right
Not for me dear, can’t you see it’s clear I’m
Strong enough to change and I’m brave enough to where an ugly face
An ugly face, such an ugly face... and I’m brave enough to say goodbye

I go and say hello as you’re waving good bye to me
Well I guess I never really tried until you said goodbye to me
Hello Goodbye, Hello Goodbye x2
Goodbye, ya Goodbye, Hello Goodbye

Surrender

Written By: Aimie Laws

As the night’s brought down by the moon, I sit here surrendering myself to you
As we lay our heads down we’ll make it right; under the moon tonight

I look in your eyes and all I see seems right, and as you touch me can’t help but feel
That it might be just what I need inside; I wanna feel what it’s like

Surrendering every little part of me, I kinda like it how you can see all of me
You always know when life gets the best of me, it get’s hard all alone see
I thought I needed only me, I was wrong but can you blame me?
Can you blame me, can you blame me?

I surrender, I surrender, I surrender, I surrender

As I lay upon your chest your heart beat talks to me, saying you like it best when it’s only you and me
As you look in my eyes you say you see destiny, you drew love on my arms just so I could see...just so I could see

Surrendering every little part of me, I kinda like it how you can see all of me
You always know when life gets the best of me, it get’s hard all alone see
I thought I needed only me, I was wrong but can you blame me?
Can you blame me, can you blame me?

I surrender, I surrender, I surrender, I surrender
