Lyrics

Each Passing Line

Written By: Carissa Haluska

It started out champagne and roses,
fireplaces, warm and cozy
We held each other's hopes so dear
doing everything to keep them near

Tender smiles and loving kisses
Each embrace a warm submission
Waking in the morning light,
to find a note you wrote last night

chorus:
Each passing line my heart beat more and more.
Took me to places not seen before.
I really can't believe its true,
what's happening between me and you

Now its broken promises, broken rules
Everyone mummers, "what a fool"
a treasure lost, nothing gained
but battle scars covered in pain

Can't you feel the hurt in my eyes?
When exactly did you cross that line?
I sit alone crying to songs
as the radio plays on and on

chorus:
Each passing line, my heart breaks more and more.
Takes me to lows not known before.
I really can't believe its true,
what's happening between me and you

Too many lies, too much abuse
Its so clear what I must do
pack my things, put the car in gear
the highway swallows up my fear

chorus:
Each passing line, my heart beats more and more.
Takes me to places not seen before.
I really can't believe its true,
what's happening between me and you

Tell Me Something Real

Written By: Carissa Haluska

You’re gliding towards the door so easily and free
Doesn’t it even register with you what its doing to me
I won’t let you make that last leap without feeling some regret
Have I been so blinded that I have misjudged your every step

I refuse to believe I have played the fool, blinded for this long
We built too many fortresses, trials have come and gone
I’ve been with you every step you took, I know you’re every move
So don’t think that you sparing me by not telling me the truth

Chorus:
Tell me something real, tell me something true
After everything we’ve done, don’t you know that I can see you
Look into my soul, make me really know
I don’t want manufactured lines, no PC alibis
Tell me something real

If you’re so determined that this is how you feel
You got to give me something made of steel,
Something strong enough to calm fear and dread
Something that makes clear the path we must tread

I believe when you love something you have to set it free
But I can only bear it if the masks are taken off of me
I am stronger than you think. I can take what you have to say
Don’t let me be consumed by you leaving me this way

Chorus:
Tell me something real, tell me something true
After everything we’ve done, don’t you know that I can see you
Look into my soul, make me really know
I don’t want manufactured lines, no PC alibis
Tell me something real

Bridge:
Maybe its not me that’s blind, not seeing the cards that were dealt
Have you hidden who you really are even from yourself?
If you need to find what fills your soul, baby I’ll let you go
As long as we part honestly, I’ll always be wherever you roam

….but you have to

Chorus:
Tell me something real, tell me something true
After everything we’ve done, don’t you know that I can see you
Look into my soul, make me really know
I don’t want manufactured lines, no PC alibis
Tell me something real
