Lyrics

Lauren

Written By: Cory Ryan

Lauren, you’re pushin’ me around again,
Your breaking me until I mend into the someone who
Can see things from your point of view, and
If you don’t mind then I won't choose
Lauren.

Lauren, have you ever really had a friend?
Or do you just need another man
To fill the void you’ve caused?
Mark it down for another loss.
I’m loyal just not to your cause.

On and on the next one falls,
She’s taking names and busting balls
When love songs make no sense at all
Lauren, Lauren, Lauren.

Lauren would like to say a word in her defense.
She said, “It really just depends.
I love them all and then,
Each one fits my master plan; I’m loyal just not to one man.”

On and on the next one falls,
She’s taking names and busting balls
When love songs make no sense at all
Lauren, Lauren, Lauren.

You want to, know that you, have all you need beside you,
But when that someone comes along
What went wrong?

On and on the next one falls,
She’s taking names and busting balls
When love songs make no sense at all
Lauren, Lauren, Lauren.

Good Now That You're Gone

Written By: Cory Ryan

I’m lost, I’ve been afraid, I’m afraid of what we’ve made
I’ll take the blame, I’ll take the blame, I’ll take the shame.

I’ve been lost without your love.
I’ve been lost without your touch.

I’m good, now that you’re gone.
I’m good, now that you’re gone.

And everything is better
I said everything is better
I said everything is better, now you’re gone.

I take the shoes off from my feet, I put ‘em on
I love to
I’m not ashamed to admit defeat, I play the game.
I love you.
I’m not ashamed.
I’m not ashamed.
I’m not ashamed of you.

I’m good, now that you’re gone.
I’m good, now that you’re gone.

Well, everything is better
I said everything is better
I said everything is better now you’re gone.

I bring them more songs than I could every write.
I bring them more. I’ll tell the world, I’ll say, “I love you”.
You should’ve worn my ring.
You should’ve said, “I do”.
You should’ve said, “I do” too.

Well I’m good, now that you’re gone.
Well I’m good, now that you’re gone.

And everything is better
I said everything is better
I said everything is better, now you’re gone.

Good that you’re gone.
I am good now that you’re gone.
Well everything is better
I said everything is better
I said everything is better, now you’re gone.

She's Higher

Written By: Cory Ryan

She can be miles away,
But you’d never notice.
She can be dyin’ inside,
But she’ll never show this.

And if you ask her
How she’s been,
She’ll never tell you
About the hell she’s livin’ in.

‘Cause she is higher
And it shows.
She inspires
Everyone she knows.
She is higher.

She only has to say the words
And your problems seem to disappear,
‘Cause her voice is a remedy
That is ringing in my ear.

And I must bow my head
For what she has made me:
She taught me how to be a man
But she’s always a lady.

She is higher
And it shows.
She inspires
Everyone she knows.
She is higher.

Silver Sable

Written By: Cory Ryan

I love to watch you sleeping,
I sit by as you breath.
You’ve taken up all of all of my senses,
You’ve left me all but complete.

If you want to run, come run away with me.

If you’re willing, I am able,
We’ll take a ride in my silver sable.
We’ll catch the moon and hang it high
For you and I.

I miss you while your sleeping,
I’ve lost all self-control.
You’re moving through all of my dreaming,
You’ve taken a breath from my soul.

If you want to run, come run away with me.

If you’re willing, I am able,
We’ll take a ride in my silver sable.
We’ll catch the moon and hang it high
For you and I.

If you’re lost, I’ll be your compass,
Playing cards, I’m what the trump is,
You want to drink, I’ll be your driver,
Want to smoke, I’ll be your lighter;
Want a lover for your life,
Buy you a ring, make you my wife.
You want control just take it back,
Ill be the thing that you have lacked.

I’ll be your anything,
I’ll be your anything at all.

If you’re willing, I am able,
We’ll take a ride in my silver sable.
We’ll catch the moon and hang it high
For you and I.

If you’re willing, I am able,
And if you’re weak, then I’ll be stable.
And if you want a love, I’ll be the lover that you need.
