Lyrics

Rescue Me

Written By: Angela Gilltrap

If I’m wrong but I’m strong believe in me
If I’m young and I’m dumb have faith in me
If I’m on my knees and I’m begging you…

If I’m cruel or unkind, forgive me
If I’m too absorbed to see, enlighten me
If I can’t find my way back to you
Please come to my rescue

If I’m naïve and I’m blind, humour me
If I’m wide eyed and satisfied, stay with me
If I’ve lost all hope in what I can do…

If I’m brave but insane, let me be
If I’m hurting but I’m learning, just wait and see
If I’m indifferent to life, will you
Please come to my rescue

When I’m trying my best to smile through the tears
When I’m weighed down with useless cares
When I’m walking on water but I’m drowning in mud
Will you be there?

If I’m hard but I’m true bear with me
If I’m trying not to cry just smile with me
If I can’t put the pieces back will you
Come to my rescue
Please rescue me

Miss Understood

Written By: Angela Gilltrap

Made a promise to myself that I would be good
Cause I read in one of those books that’s what I should do
No drinks, no drugs, no sweets, no fun, no destruction of any kind
Trying to clean out my soul trying to clean out my mind

And I’ll last maybe 14 hours which I think is pretty good
And I realize that I’m not that bad, just misunderstood myself

Made a promise to myself that I would clean up more
That I’d stop throwing my things on the bedroom floor
Clean house, clean car, clean thoughts hey, even clean mind
Trying to clean up my soul, trying to clean out my mind

And I’ll last maybe 14 hours which I think is pretty good
And I realize that I’m not that bad just misunderstood

You know it’s easy enough to do, if you
Look way too to close

So I’ll last maybe 14 hours which I think is pretty good
And I realize that I’m not that bad
And I’ll last maybe 14 hours which I think is pretty good
And I realize that I’m not that bad just misunderstood
Misunderstood,
Misunderstood,
Misunderstood, myself

Stuck in the Middle

Written By: Angela Gilltrap

Stuck in the middle
Caught on the line
Hoping to get a, a different answer this time
Reaching for something that does not exist
Putting faith in a non-existent mystic love myth

It all started out with a flashy smile across the room
Just like in the movies
But as time went by his sentiment was just as shallow
But it was too late to go back now
Thinking was real, hoping that he’d feel
Falling for the lines that I’d laughed at
Time and time again
But there is no end, I’m stuck and I know
I’ve got no where to go cause I’m

Stuck in the middle
Caught on the line
Hoping to get a, to get a different answer this time
Reaching for something that does not exist
Putting faith in a non-existent mystic love myth

And as time went by I was slowly torn apart by it
Just like in the movies
But there’s no happy end to this story that had just began
But faded so quickly
Now finding a way out, when all you’ve got is doubt
Forgiving in you mind, time and time and time again
Now there is no end, I’m stuck and I know
I’ve got no where to go cause I’m

Stuck in the middle
Caught on the line
Hoping to get a, to get a different answer this time
Reaching for something that does not exist
Putting faith in a non-existent mystic love myth

Mystic love myth
Mystic love myth

Now I know I’m
