Lyrics

Mess Like Me

Written By: Alia

Something new here
I can’t deny
Something strange
Living in your eyes
Well I’ve been here one two many times
And I know how to black out shit in my mind
Well I will turn my back to you
And you can just ease out of the room

‘Cause I know I’m barely on my feet
You walk in the room and I can hardly breath
Oh I know you never wanted a mess like me
I don’t blame you if you want to leave

You said something I can’t forget
The weight of the world
Fell right on my chest
Well I’ll make it easy
And I won’t cry
And all you have to do is say goodbye

Say it Loud, and say it to my face
Well this was nothing more than your mistake
I will glady be on my way
Take a good look at my face

‘Cause I know I’m barely on my feet
You walk in the room and I can hardly breath
Oh I know you never wanted a mess like me
I don’t blame you if you want to leave

Run run run baby run
Run run run away
Run Run baby run
Run Run Run away

‘Cause I know I’m barely on my feet
You walk in the room and I can hardly breath
Oh I know you never wanted a mess like me
I don’t blame you if you want to leave
I don’t blame you if you want to leave

Trouble

Written By: Alia

Trouble out to get me
On this one lane highway
Well if I just keep drving
Will I get away

Trouble all around me
Seeping through my viens
Trouble in my past honey
Trouble in my way

Well I’ve been trying to tell you something
Trying to do everything right
I could get better just let me stay tonight

But it’s oh no, everytime I try
It’s oh no, you get that look in your eyes
Oh no, here we go again
If your going my way
I want to go with you

Well I’ve got no money
Nothing much to offer
Well I can keep good company
If you let me stay

Well I’ve been searching for something
Something sacred I lost
I think you know what I’m saying
How’s my heart these days

But it’s oh no, everytime I try
It’s oh no, you get that look in your eyes
Oh no, here we go again
If your going my way
I want to go with you

And it to late to turn back
It’s too late, I’m not walking it out
It’s too late, to turn back now
It’s to late I’m not backing down
But it’s oh no, everytime I try
It’s oh no, you get that look in your eyes
Oh no, here we go again
If your going my way I want to go with you
