I Want You To Know

Written By: Caroline Gallagher

Can’t you understand the reason I let you go
Is because I loved you
The very first time I saw you I said, “I know
I’ll always love you”
You’re the reason I can’t breathe
You’re the reason I can’t sleep
You are everything that I want and need

I want you to know
I didn’t have a choice when I said
That I couldn’t tell you how I feel
I want you to know
That all the times I looked at you in the eyes and laughed
Baby, it was real
I didn’t mean to let you down
I’d give anything to tell you now
All of the things I meant to tell you
But I never found the chance to say
I want you to know

I couldn’t find a single point in falling for you
‘Cause you were already taken
But at the same time I didn’t know what to do
Because I couldn’t help it
And now I need to apologize
For all those stupid words and lies
Everything I thought I had to say

I want you to know
I didn’t have a choice when I said
That I couldn’t tell you how I feel
I want you to know
That all the times I looked at you in the eyes and laughed
Baby, it was real
I didn’t mean to let you down
I’d give anything to tell you now
All of the things I meant to tell you
But I never found the chance to say
I want you to know

I never saw it coming
You were more than I could believe
Our fantasies were no reality

Can’t you understand the reason I let you go
Is because I loved you
I just wanted to tell you before you go

I want you to know
I didn’t have a choice when I said
That I couldn’t tell you how I feel
I want you to know
That all the times I looked at you in the eyes and laughed
Baby, it was real
I didn’t mean to let you down
I’d give anything to tell you now
All of the things I meant to tell you
But I never found the chance to say
I want you to know
I want you to know
I want you to know

Gone

Written By: Caroline Gallagher

I tried to tell you
There's no point in falling
For someone yet taken
So why did you make me
Why did you shatter me
Into a million pieces
If only you could know
The pain that you've caused

I'm standing here all on my own
There's no one here in my arms
And you are gone
Why did you leave me to die
You never said goodbye
You were the first one I loved
I gave it all to you
And you are gone

I know you never
Meant any harm
But look at what you've done
Weren't you the one who
Warned me of causing such pain, oh
What if this could have been avoided
You've compromised my trust
In those eyes

I'm standing here all on my own
There's no one here in my arms
And you are gone
Why did you leave me to die
You never said goodbye
You were the first one I loved
I gave it all to you and you are gone

We made it through so many things
I believed we were invincible
But I had to let you go
And you're acting like I'm invisible
I knew all along she was the one for you
And I hope you see it too
Don't worry about me
I'll be just fine, even though

I am standing here on my own
There's no one here in my arms
And you are gone
Why did you leave me to die
You never said goodbye
You were the first one I loved
I gave it all to you
And you are gone

Resist Me

Written By: Caroline Gallagher

When I saw you looking at me
I thought I was going crazy over you
You approach me with your mischief eyes and your sly smile
Speaking light, enticing words
So what happens now

It's not a crime for you to do as you please
I thought I told you it's not nice to tease
I'll make you forget my innocence
And show you just how undone I can be
You can try, but are you sure that you really
Want to try to resist me

I don't care about the distance
Or that you have more experience, you know what I mean
I'm not bothered by your generous attention
I'm not looking for anything real, I'm just looking for fun
So what happens now

It's not a crime for you to do as you please
I thought I told you it's not nice to tease
I'll make you forget my innocence
And show you just how undone I can be
You can try, but are you sure that you really
Want to try to resist me

I tried to play you and give you an offer
You were surprised and seemed to consider
Maybe we weren't on the same page, and I guess
You're just a challenge to read and impress
You're perfect and fun without a commitment
You lead me on with merciless tempting
You tell me that was not your intention
I still say we should have some relations

It's not a crime for you to do as you please
I thought I told you it's not nice to tease
I'll make you forget my innocence
And show you just how undone I can be
You can try, but are you sure that you really
Want to try to resist me

Maybe I need to just give up and see
All of the damage you're doing to me
I know that you're not entirely free
But the decision is all up to you
I could try, but I'm not sure that I really
Want to try to resist you

I Don't Care

Written By: Caroline Gallagher

You think that I care that you don't wanna be my friend
I don't even care, it doesn't matter in the end
'Cause I don't need you the way you think that I do

I don't understand why you think you can get away with this
You are going down

Go away, I don't like you anyway
And I don't think anybody does
Think they want you, think they need you
I think you need to get over yourself

You think you can burn a bridge and cross it anyway
Well, let me tell you something, honey
Things don't work that way
And I don't care if you don't comprehend, woah

I don't understand why you think you can get away with this
You are going down

Go away, I don't like you anyway
And I don't think anybody does
Think they want you, think they need you
I think you need to get over yourself
Stop talking, can't stand the sound of your voice
You don't say anything, you're just making noise
Think you're bad, think you're big
Think you're better than me but you're not
And I don't care a thing about you

I don't care about you, woah
I don't care about you

When you realize the power I hold over you
You'll come crawling back, but I won't let you through
'Cause I'll remember how you tried to watch me to burn
All you are is fake and you kick people when they're down
Well, take a big step back and a better look around
You'll start to see you've brought your own self down, woah

I don't understand why you think you can get away with this
You are going down

Go away, I don't like you anyway
And I don't think anybody does
Think they want you, think they need you
I think you need to get over yourself
Stop talking, can't stand the sound of your voice
You don't say anything, you're just making noise
Think you're bad, think you're big
Think you're better than me, but you're not
And I don't care a thing about you

I don't care about you, woah
I don't care about you

Go away, I don't like you anyway
And I don't think anybody does
Think they want you, think they need you
I think you need to get over yourself
Stop talking, can't stand the sound of your voice
You don't say anything, you're just making noise
Think you're bad, think you're big
Think you're better than me but you're not
And I don't care a thing about you

Nothing Left

Written By: Caroline Gallagher

All this time has filled the void
You left in my heart and soul
Four years are gone
My tears are done
And you will never know
The side of me you wanted to see
You never watched me grow
And now it's all for someone new
Someone you won't know

It's really over and we're done
There's nothing left to say
I've done all I can, I've cried out to you
But you've just turned away
You can't pretend I didn't try
Or never let you know
In the end it was you
The one to let us go

I hear the silence, I feel your walls
The one I used to build
But don't you see those games are poison
And we both were killed
I feel so broken and naïve
Holding out for you
I realize now I was just a lie
Just a waste of your time

It's really over and we're done
There's nothing left to say
I've done all I can, I've cried out to you
But you've just turned away
You can't pretend I didn't try
Or never let you know
In the end it was you
The one to let us go

I should've known you'd be the one
To try to say goodbye
Don't try to blame me
I would never have let our love die
But all this time has gone
And you've just turned away from me
I'm no longer here, there's nothing left
There's no more you and me

It's really over and we're done
There's nothing left to say
I've done all I can, I've cried out to you
But you've just turned away
You can't pretend I didn't try
Or never let you know
In the end it was you
The one to let us go

It's really over and we're done
There's nothing left to say
I've done all I can, I've cried out to you
But you've just turned away
You can't pretend I didn't try
Or never let you know
In the end it was you
The one to let us go
