Lyrics

No One Else

Written By: Dave Fortuna

"No One Else", by Dave Fortuna

Verse:
No one else but me, loves you for you,
not things you bring.
Its'your fault I love you through all of this.
The bad words you said meant the opposite.




Pre:
Don't tell me statistics, We're not a percentage.
It's illogical, but just feel it.....


Chorus:
No one else but me,
Loves you like I do,
Would they stick it through.
You're eyes lie there's love inside.
No one else but me,
Loves you like I do,
Will you stick it through?
Just go out if ya need to see,
that you'll be coming back to me!



Verse 2: No one else but me,
loves you like your family should, when in need.
Gave you the remote, let you have some control.
You push away to see who stays...



Pre 2: Don't tell me statistics, We're not a percentage.
It's illogical, but just feel it



Repeat Chorus:



Bridge:
People complain of uncertainty, but don't keep the words they mean.
But expect others to keep what they say, Well who do you
believe anyway?

Bridge 2/acoustic chorus:

End Chorus:: No one else but me..

Today's The Day

Written By: Dave Fortuna

“Today’s the Day”, by Dave Fortuna

Verse: Today’s, the day I, chose to have a say

in my life, you won’t, plan my regrets.

Tonights the night where, I had the time of my life,

Faced my fears, the new me is here.

Pre: I, can’t believe I can feel, real!

Now I know, if life is outta control just ask yourself… who has the wheel?

Chorus: Today’s the day, I made the change

don’t need, public polls, to be in control

Tonight’s the night, I’m alive inside….

don’t need, public polls, I am in control..

Verse 2: Today’s the day I, grew tired of saving face,

I just let go, of self defeating ways.

Tonights the night where, impossibles possible,

The future and past, let go their grasp.

Pre: I, feel so free I can’t believe, it’s me

Now I know, if life is outta control just ask yourself… who has the wheel?

Chorus: Today’s the day, dreams are made…don’t need, public polls,

to be in control

Tonight’s the night, I’m alive inside….

don’t need, public polls, I am in control..

Bridge: Once I let go…public polls growed, and I flowed, flowed.

I’m in control, it’s hard enough to like your soul, screw public polls

Chorus: Today’s the day, dreams are made…don’t need, public polls,

to be in control

Tonight’s the night, I’m alive inside….

don’t need, public polls, I am in control..

Verse1:
Guarded up and frighten love
Is it me or hidden enemies,
Defeating me… Help me to breathe,
In my rights out bigotry.

I’m, a one man army ….I’m not alone ….


Chorus: All else failed, but I, never bailed…why’d you?
Feels as though, I am…
A one man army…they aim for my soul…
Even though, I’ve disarmed….disarmed….



Verse 2: Buy into what I don’t need or believe
And pay the media to do it to me
Cash in your babies genetic code,
Fast food marriage for your soul…

Bridge: Aim!!!


Repeat chorus:

Outro: disarmed, disarmed, disarmed!!! ...armed, armed, armed.....
