Release Me

Written By: Courtney Burgess

Release Me

Verse 1

I know what I want from
love,
but would I receive
I've been there so
many times
I can not breathe
I thought each one would
last forever
but forever never came
and I'm still all alone

Chorus

With no shoulder to cry
on
Nobody to wipe my tears
I feel myself dying inside
needing a release
somebody release me
I'm needing releasin
love please capture me
and set my sorrows free

Verse 2

If I could turn, turn back time
I would re write all my
love lies..
and I would protect my heart
from this cruel cruel
world
of shattered hearts you know..
does my heart have a chance to
breathe again

Chorus

with-no shoulder to cry
on
Who will wipe my tears
I feel myself dying inside
needing a release
somebody release me
I'm needing releasin
love please capture me
and set my sorrows free

Verse 3
I wish I could fly
fly so high
where I didn't have to
focus on my
life
Its funny how they say
time ...brings bout a
change
who am I to rely on
who am I to cry for
Who is to save me from
myself

Chorus

With no shoulder to cry
on
Nobody to wipe my tears
I feel myself dying inside
needing a release
somebody release me
I'm needing releasin
love please capture me
and set my sorrows free

Forever

Written By: Courtney Burgess

Forever

Verse

5, 6,7 times you have told me lies
and each and everyone
you stood and looked me
in my eyes
and you said ba-by
I Love you
and you'd never do anything
to hurt me
and if I wanna back out
that I could surely
and that in the end you wanna
make me happy
happy...

You step away
every time she calls
you
or you just choose not
to answer at all
Of course you said that
that it was over
we're over
so over

Chorus

You don't know that you
talk in circles
I don't care for merry-go-rounds
its time for you to pack your things
and go now
just go now

Verse

I'm tired of you
always smilin in
my face
acting like you have
my back when that's
not the case
ba-by
and you say
you can't imagine
what
I'd found
but in the end we could
work it out
somehow
and you know you will
always be my one and
only
only

Hook

Ha ha
Ha ha
boy you look so foolish
ha ha
ha ha
You really can go
ha ha
ha ha
there's nothing left to say
ha ha
ha ha
there's the door

Chorus

You don't know that you
talk in circles
I don't care for merry-go-rounds
its time for you to pack your things
and go now
just go now

Verse

I can not forget
all the good times
that
has happened in
the past
I'm so messed up
It didn't
last
and in so many times
I gave you my heart
and the tears I wept
due to a broken heart
and you had me
at a brand new low
low

Hook

Ha ha
Ha ha
boy you look so foolish
ha ha
ha ha
You really can go
ha ha
ha ha
there's nothing left to say
ha ha
ha ha
there's the door

Instrumental

Chorus

You don't know that you
talk in circles
I don't care for merry-go-rounds
its time for you to pack your things
and go now
just go now

you don't know
that you talk in circles
round
merry-go- round
and pack your things
and go now
just now

go
go
go
go
go
go
go
go
