Lyrics

Not Today

Written By: Danielle McKee

Not Today

Verse:
You took my hand and walked me Built up the walls to stop me
From ever seeing sunlight
You watched me close and held tight There were no promised made
There were no words that we said
I never meant to say yes
I never meant to say no

Chorus :
No I don’t think it’s black and white No I don’t think its wrong or right
No I don’t think its going to change Not Today

Verse:
You took my heart and kept it Because somehow I left it Somewhere you were invited
But I was undecided
What does this story want to tell? When will the secrets be revealed? There are no signs to follow
Only your lies to swallow

Chorus:
No I don’t think it’s black and white No I don’t think its wrong or right
No I don’t think its going to change Not Today

Bridge:
I awaken to this nightmare and I see that you were never what you seemed to be

Chorus:
No I don’t think it’s black and white No I don’t think its wrong or right
No I don’t think its going to change Not Today

Stayed All Night

Written By: Danielle McKee

STAYED ALL NIGHT

Verse:
I spent so long sitting here thinking aloud
But I’m trapped inside my own mind
And there’s no room to breathe
And I’m tired of being told there’s nothing you can do
Am I chasing down a meaningless pursuit?

Chorus:
I stayed all night
looking for the answers in the sky
All night
But nothing came and nothing passed me by
It’s alright, its alright

Verse:
I made a choice – I figured out what I needed to lose
Here comes the pain – hurry up don’t wanna feel the sting
I tell myself I’m really through this time
I won’t go back I won’t go there again

Chorus:
I stayed all night
looking for the answers in the sky
All night
But nothing came and nothing passed me by
It’s alright, its alright

Bridge:
Why this? Why now? Why ever?
Why this? Why now? Why ever?

Chorus:
I stayed all night
looking for the answers in the sky
All night
But nothing came and nothing passed me by
It’s alright, its alright

I'll Be There

Written By: Danielle McKee

I’LL BE THERE

Never wanted much from you can’t you see that?
But you think too much
What you’ve been through
Is it still bad?
Can time catch up with you?
Can time catch up with you?

Chorus:
You know that I’ll be there no matter how far we stray
You know that I’ll be there
No matter how far we stray
No matter how far we stray

Well I guess I watch from a distance Need to step outside
That’s when I learn a lot ‘bout our mistakes
‘Bout the things that aint right
And time catches up with me
And time knows its time for me!

// Chorus //

Bridge:
You’ve gone away now
I have no reason to forget
I can’t not yet
No

// Chorus //

Didn't Want It This Way

Written By: Danielle McKee

Didn’t Want It This Way

What it feels like
You don’t understand
Don’t want you to
You’re not there yet
There’s a vacancy
You’re leaving me
Give me space
Make it clear to me
I can’t keep track of you
Watch over you Take care of you now
I’ll let you go
Let you know
Leave you alone Forever more

Chorus:
And it feels so good makes me believe that it’s
so real and I want it so bad
I can’t go on like this
before you break me
Stop this now before we fall
I didn’t want it that way
It’s over!

It makes me clean
So serene
Purify
Let it lie
Far away
You need to be
From here to feel secure
It’s not a miracle that I am full I’m in control now
I am sure
I am pure
I wish you were
‘Cause I need more

// Chorus //

Bridge:
I’m stuck in the middle nothing seems to work out right
I’m falling tonight
Catch me

// Chorus

More Than Mine

Written By: Danielle McKee

I will gladly be what you want me to be
I will gladly see what you want me to see
And I'll try anything with ya
I like just being with ya
Your eyes see more than mine

Chorus:
I'll always be guided by you
You see more to life
and you're more than mine (x2)

I will always hear what it is you need to say
Nothing that you do will make me wanna run away
And I'll do anything for you
It's true got a thing for you
Your eyes see more than mine

Chorus

Bridge:
Did you know things would change?
Take it all
Rearrange
What we thought we had is a stong foundation
I don't wanna stop
Your love is more than what I ever thought could be
So darling let be
what it will be

Chorus

This Is Me

Written By: Danielle McKee, Jay Condiotti


THIS IS ME

I know what I want. I keep reaching out.
No one is gonna stop me. Everything is just right!

Chorus
This is my life! I’m on my own! Don’t need anyone to guide me down the road. I’m finding out who, yeah, who I wanna be.
This is my life! I’m in control! Moving so fast to where I wanna go and I’m shouting out: “Who, yeah who do you see?”

I know who I am. I let my feelings show.
I’m not scared to tell everyone all the things on my mind.

Chorus
This is my life! I’m on my own! Don’t need anyone to guide me down the road. I’m finding out who, yeah, who I wanna be.
This is my life! I’m in control! Moving so fast to where I wanna go and I’m shouting out: “Who, yeah who do you see?”

Just don’t tell me how to live my life. I’ve got to have control.
I live for the fight and I’m ready it’s my life!

Chorus
This is my life! I’m on my own! Don’t need anyone to guide me down the road. I’m finding out who, yeah, who I wanna be.
This is my life! I’m in control! Moving so fast to where I wanna go and I’m shouting out: “Who, yeah who do you see?”
