You Know Why You're Here

YOU KNOW WHY YOU’RE HERE music and lyrics by Dave DeRosa (4/17/08)

Don’t you ever give in to the fear
That no one would miss you if you disappeared
Those clouds are gonna pass
It will be clear who needs you

Don’t you ever wish you could go back
Wipe the slate clean, take a different path
It’s never too late to forgive yourself
And everyone else

I know it feels like there’s nowhere to turn
All of your cards are played, your bridges burned
But you know why you’re here
You know what you’re doing here
Teach them what you’ve learned

Don’t you ever listen to that voice
Says that you no longer have a choice
Every day’s another chance to fight
And get something right

I know it feels like there’s nowhere to turn
All of your cards are played, your bridges burned
But you know why you’re here
You know what you’re doing here
Teach them what you’ve learned

Everybody feels the same emotions
We’re only separated by the oceans
Same breaks, same mistakes
One sun, one race
We’ll help each other make it

Don’t you think it’s time to jump back in
Look to where you’re going, not where you’ve been
It’s never too late to forgive yourself
And everybody else

I know it feels like there’s nowhere to turn
All of your cards are played, your bridges burned
But you know why you’re here
You know what you’re doing here
Teach them what you’ve learned

You know why you’re here
You know what you’re doing here
Live the life you’ve earned

Four To The Floor

FOUR TO THE FLOOR words and music by Dave DeRosa (3/21/08)

Hey spinna, give me four to the floor
I need to go deep
Can’t hold back anymore
Don’t sit on the good stuff
Give it up, give it up
Give me what I came for

I had a trying day
It was all I could do to keep it together
The only thing that got me through was knowing I was gonna be with you
Wish I could stay here forever

Sometimes it’s like you give and give and don’t get nothing back
Some days you’re moving, but it’s like your wheel slipped off the track
Tonight I feel like the stars are finally lining up
Like something big’s about to happen to us

Hey spinna, give me four to the floor
I need to go deep
Can’t hold back anymore
Don’t sit on the good stuff
Give it up, give it up
Give me what I came for

You’ve got the power to make me do something wild
Push every limit
Don’t be afraid to make it rough
Pop that vintage stuff and fill me up
I want to be swimming in it

Sometimes it’s like you look your best but can’t find nothing good
When life’s a bitch just hit the floor
Take it out on the wood
Tonight I feel like my troubles all just disappeared
Like something big’s about to blow up in here

Hey spinna, give me four to the floor
I need to go deep
Can’t hold back anymore
Don’t sit on the good stuff
Give it up, give it up
Give me what I came for

Hey spinna, give me four to the floor
I need to go deep
Can’t hold back anymore
Don’t sit on the good stuff
Give it up, give it up
Give me what I came for

Give me what I came for…. Give me what I came for….
Give me what I came for…. Give me what I came for….
Give me what I came for…. Give me what I came for….

Hey spinna, give me four to the floor
I need to go deep
Can’t hold back anymore
Don’t sit on the good stuff
Give it up, give it up
Give me what I came for

Hey spinna, give me four to the floor
I need to go deep
Can’t hold back anymore
Don’t sit on the good stuff
Give it up, give it up
Give me what I came for

Give me what I came for…. Give me what I came for….
Give me what I came for…. Give me what I came for….
