Lyrics

My Mistake

Written By: April Geesbreght

I can testify all you want
I can say the right words
I can slow down – don’t crowd me when I get too close
So tell me the story
Why don’t you start with where I came in?
Cause I don’t remember,
What was the reason we began?

It’s all just a memory now
It’s like whispering over voices that are talking too loud
It’s all in the way we perceive
But I want to know what did we believe

Please don’t take my head from me - It’s not what you think
Please be careful I’m not through - Making my mistake

I start with a so, so sorry
If I had known it would end this way
I would have run and kept running from you
But look now what I know today

It’s all just a memory now
It’s like whispering over voices that are talking too loud
It’s all in the way we perceive
But I want to know what did we believe

Please don’t take my head from me – it’s not what you think
Please be careful I’m not through - Making my mistake

Please don’t take my head from me – it’s not what you think
Please be careful I’m not through - Making my mistake

Tell All The Angels

Written By: April Geesbreght

I woke up to the day – did I see you in my dream?
You spoke like you could save – when I knew nothing of free
Everyone else held a price – everybody else made me pay
But you held your love in the light
You stood in my doorway and ended the fight

Don’t go, I’ll tell all the angels
They made you too lovely
Must be a mistake
Cause you, you take all the stones away
And fill up my everyday
You’re the sky shining bright, shining blue

Tell me the story again –why don’t you start when we knew
Was it before we began – and did you know I love you?
No one else understands – only pictures and words to show them
No one else has your face – I see you when I’m dreaming
And you when I wake

Don’t go, I’ll tell all the angels
They made you too lovely
Must be a mistake
Cause you, you take all the stones away
And fill up my everyday
You’re the sky shining bright, shining blue
You’re the sky shining bright, shining blue

You are the song I hear inside me – you’re my direction
You see through my walls and faded paintings
For you I’ve been waiting

Don’t go, I’ll tell all the angels
They made you too lovely
Must be a mistake
Cause you, you take all the stones away
And fill up my everyday
You’re the sky shining bright, shining blue

Not Gonna Think

Written By: April Geesbreght

It may take a long time
For me to make up my mind
But I prayed for the night to always stay
And laid in the ground until it caved - wishing you away

Not gonna think about you
Not gonna think about you
Not gonna think about you
Not gonna think about you

Now the water’s higher than I thought
Can’t swim the outside because of the rocks

But if you were like water than I was like rain
Falling down on you
If you were like ocean than I was like waves
Rushing over you

Not gonna think about you
Not gonna think about you
Not gonna think about you
Not gonna think about you

The city’s cold and the sun’s gone down
I’ve been here all day drawing a crowd
Please go, I know I’m making a scene
But I’m okay it’s the way it must be
It must be

Not gonna think about you
Not gonna think about you
Not gonna think about you
Not gonna think about you

You can try to ignore me but oh, you know
Oh, you know
I can try to forget you but I’ll still know
I will always know

I'd Like to Keep You

Written By: april geesbreght

It’s like taking a walk and not seeing the fences
Never noticing endings
Always finding a door
Nothing’s hard nothing’s old
Nothing’s seated we’re standing
Oh and at the beginning
I hear an echoed encore

Don’t be foolish
It’s not always gonna feel like this
It’s just new – well that’s not it

It’s like you know that I love you
I wanna hold you
When we get home tonight
It’s like you know that I need you
I’d like to keep you if that’s all right

It’s like knowing you’re crazy
But he doesn’t mind it
Got a way that he tames it
Makes it all become right
Love is bigger than us it’s much bigger than we know
So much bigger than the biggest show
And that’s the way we like it

Don’t be foolish
It’s not always gonna feel like this
It’s just new – well that’s not it

It’s like you know that I love you
I wanna hold you
When we get home tonight
It’s like you know that I need you
I’d like to keep you if that’s all right

It’s like I dreamed you out loud and you walked in
The picture cleared no longer clouded - I’ve never been where love was not conditional
Or without end - I’m living and it’s beautiful

It’s like you know that I love you
I wanna hold you
When we get home tonight
It’s like you know that I need you
I’d like to keep you if that’s all right

It's like knowing you're crazy but he doesn't mind it...

You've Got Me

Written By: april geesbreght

Been studied
Been framed
It’s not what you like
Instead you call names
Instead you fight
Fall asleep just for a moment now
Waking up with a face like you got it down
It might get better on tomorrow’s day
But if it turns and doesn’t go your way

I want you to know that you’ve got – you’ve got me
Want you to know that you’ve got - you’ve got me

Been angry
Been trained
To guard your heart
This life might feel strange
But it’s just a part
Some will say we don’t have long
Some will say we will make it we are very strong
Listen I won’t go on and on

Want you to know that you’ve got – you’ve got me
Want you to know that you’ve got – you’ve got me
Want you to know that you’ve got – you’ve got me
Want you to know that you’ve got – you’ve got me

You’re finally falling asleep to the radio
All you hear are the voices singing low
All I know -You’ve been trying
Letting go - I’m not buying

Want you to know that you’ve got – you’ve got me
Want you to know that you’ve got – you’ve got me
Want you to know that you’ve got – you’ve got me
Want you to know that you’ve got – you’ve got me

I Hate That I Still Love You

Written By: April Geesbreght & Michael Fordinal

I never thought this is how we would end
Sweeping pieces of my heart
I never thought I’d have to find love again
And be sent back to the start

Wake me up this can’t be real
I was sure that you’d be here forever – for all of my life
Shake me I’ve got nothing left
You strung my heart out in this mess
And I’m breaking - like I’ll never make it through
I hate that I still love you

I could see us growing old hand in hand
Nothing keeping us apart
Drawing pictures with our toes in the sand
Telling secrets in the dark
Where did we go wrong?

Wake me up this can’t be real
I was sure that you’d be here forever – for all of my life
Shake me I’ve got nothing left
You strung my heart out in this mess
And I’m breaking - like I’ll never make it through
I hate that I still love you

When time stops it’s gonna take you
It’s gonna break you inside
And never look back

Wake me up this can’t be real
I was sure that you’d be here forever – for all of my life
Shake me I’ve got nothing left
You strung my heart out in this mess
And I’m breaking - like I’ll never make it through
Wake me up this can’t be real
I was sure that you’d be here forever – for all of my life
Shake me I’ve got nothing left
You strung my heart out in this mess
And I’m breaking - like I’ll never make it through
I hate that I still love you
I still love you

Decide

Written By: April Geesbreght & Michael Fordinal

You’ve got two choices
Get over yourself and sweep me off my feet
Or start your walking
Get off of my porch and never bother me

You always let me down
Leaving my heart in every lost and found
I’m so through waiting around
What’s it gonna be?

I’m taking a chance for the last time
One shot - take it or leave it
Stop coming around with the same line
You’re all talk and I’m through believing
Baby pucker up forget your pride
Decide

Give me a reason
For your see-saw point of view
‘Cause all your teasing
O Boy, you’re keeping me confused

You always let me down
Leaving my heart in every lost and found
I’m so through waiting around
What’s it gonna be?

I’m taking a chance for the last time
One shot - take it or leave it
Stop coming around with the same line
You’re all talk and I’m through believing
Baby pucker up forget your pride
Decide

Decide which grass is greener
Figure it out – stop wasting my time
If I seem just a little bit meaner
I’m crying inside

I’m taking a chance for the last time
One shot - take it or leave it
Stop coming around with the same line
You’re all talk and I’m through believing
Baby pucker up forget your pride
Decide

What Love Looks Like

Written By: April Geesbreght

I’m so happy today
There’s not a cloud in the sky
There’s an edge to my tries
And I’m all right

I’m so happy today
We’ve got a song we can sing
You’re in the passenger’s seat
Cause I wanted to drive

I saw love upon a table - I saw angels in the sky
They were asking for our picture
Even though they know what love looks like

I’m so happy today
We got the radio on
And now they’re playing our song
And we’re singing along

You’re so happy today
You got your girl at your side
O and I’m holding on tight
And with you that’s fine

I saw love upon a table - I saw angels in the sky
They were asking for our picture
Even though they know what love looks like

Now the summer sun is laying down
The day has gone to sleep
While the moon is singing lullabies
You’ll be lying next to me

I saw love upon a table - I saw angels in the sky
They were asking for our picture
Even though they know what love looks like

I’m so happy today
There’s not a cloud in the sky
There’s an edge to my tries
And I’m all right

How

Written By: April Geesbreght/Karyn Williams

Listen to the quiet of this empty house
It’s never told me more than when you walked out
How did you make such a fool outta me?
When I believed you – I believed you

How do I tell my feet to walk again?
How do I tell my heart that it will mend?
How do I bear the silence that’s screaming so loud? Tell me how

I’ve forgotten how to wake up and face the sun
I used to know the secret but the secret’s undone
I remember on the day you said forever
I believed you – I believed you

How do I tell my feet to walk again?
How do I tell my heart that it will mend?
How do I bear the silence that’s screaming so loud? Tell me how
I’m breathing and waiting for you turn around
I wish I didn’t take so long to figure you out

And I know someday my feet will walk again?
And I know someday my heart is gonna mend?
But sitting here in the silence that’s screaming so loud
I don’t know how – I don’t know how - I don’t know how

Listen to the quiet of this empty house
It’s never told me more than when you walked out

I’m crying inside
I’m taking a chance - Take it or leave it
I’m taking a chance for the last time

Baby pucker up forget your pride
Decide (Why don’t you decide)

Pieces

Written By: April Geesbreght

I know the story
All of your worry and doubt - he made them come true
I know it’s hard to hurt like that
But in time you’re gonna get you back

Maybe in pieces
Maybe all at once
However it finds you
Don’t you give up
Maybe in sunshine
Maybe a moonless night
It’s still gonna find you
So hold on - you’re gonna see the light

I know forgiveness
She doesn’t keep lists of wrongs - She throws them away
I know you’re mad, but don’t hang on
Cause in time, you’re gonna find your song

Maybe in pieces
Maybe all at once
However it finds you
Don’t you give up
Maybe in sunshine
Maybe a moonless night
It’s still gonna find you
So hold on - you’re gonna see the light

Stop turning away you gotta fight for it
Take every mistake and let ‘em die, darlin’
Hope is gonna find you
And love is gonna change you

Maybe in pieces
Maybe all at once
However it finds you
Don’t you give up
Maybe in sunshine
Or maybe a moonless night
It’s still gonna find you
So hold on - hold on - you’re gonna see the light
