Lyrics

This is Me

Written By: Amanda Valentine

The clock strikes twelve as I rush out the door
My clothes half off but I don't care
My hair's a wreck but my only thought
Is the punishment if I get caught
I think I'm safe, turn the keys
Headlights flash, and I freeze
"Caught in the act!" Dad screams
I'm what he hoped I'd never be

I feel the adrenaline rush through my veins
I feel my innocence slipping away
forbidden love takes its place
I feel my dark-side come out to play

What have I become?
What I've done doesn't seem wrong
I love the taste of danger
It makes my heart beat faster

Chorus
This is me, I am young, I am wild, I'm free
I'm a woman no longer naive
I am unsentimental
Try to change me and I'll leave
Cause I'm living my life
You don't let me decide who to love
So I'm gone, that was me, that was me

I wake in the morning from the pounding in my head
I look around and see I'm not in my bed
These Vegas nights are out of hand
My run with him is not what I planned
He's caused me so much pain
I don't know his name
His talk of fortune and fame
has me playing his game

I prey on the weak and don't feel any shame
One night with me and they're screamin' my name
I've lost any track of the men I've used
I've sold my soul, have my purpose confused
I'm past the point of return
Ignored each lesson I've learned
Ashamed, the old me would cower
But I can't give up this power

Chorus
That was me, I was young, I was wild, was free
I'm the woman they wish they could be
I was unsentimental
They tried to change me so I left
Now I'm living my life
Now I've learned to decide who to love
Now I'm back, This is me, This is ME.

Learn to Love

Written By: Amanda Wright

Something in you changed
I go on like I'm unaffected
I wish that we were through
But my heart belongs to you
No matter what I do
I try to leave it all behind
Begin another life
I can't forget, I will not forgive
I'll never fully live again

Chorus
I enjoy the haunting
and I enjoy the pain
It's the only time you reach for me
And I can't deny
That you are my everything
I'll pretend your anger stabs my heart
It's the only time you feel for me
So for now I'll live through the pain
Until you learn to love me
Until you learn to love me
Until you learn to love me

Little life remains
My heart breaks just like you intended
I die with every breath
You refuse to let it end
You're pleased to be the blame
Don't try to sympathize with me
You dug yourself to deep
I cry each night
For what you have become
Yet I can't stop loving you

Chorus
I enjoy the haunting
And I enjoy the pain
It's the only time you reach for me
And I can't deny
That you are my everything
I'll pretend your anger stabs my heart
It's the only time you feel for me
So for now I'll live through the pain
Until you learn to love me
Until you learn to love me
Until you learn to love

Forever

Written By: Amanda Valentine Wright

It's not the dress that makes you beautiful
Or the ring that makes you mine
I know that after tonight
I'll be forever by your side
Do you share the feeling I feel?
The unexplainable fire within?
It's your dreams combined with mine
That makes heaven on our side

Chorus
Whisper you love me, say it loud and clear
Kiss me softly, then Kiss me fierce
Put your arms around me
Never let me go
We're past the chance to turn back
Our hearts are now as one
This love is unfamiliar
It's a chance that I'll take
Together we're invincible
Forever starts today

This could be the last time I only call you friend
From now on we're so much more
Our family has begun
I can see you down on your knees
Sharing laughter with one of our own

Chorus
Whisper you love me, say it loud and clear
Kiss me softly, then kiss me fierce
Put your arms around me, never let me go
We're past the chance to turn back
Our hearts are now as one
This love is unfamiliar
It's a chance that I'll take
Together we're invincible
Forever starts today

Forever starts today
