Shy GUy

Written By: Devon Franklin

“SHY GUY” by Devon Franklin

So you know there is all types of guys
You’ve got your Jocks, preps, Goths,
Nerds, geeks, burnouts, class clowns
But all I seem to get are the
Shy guys

(verse)
I know this shy guy
This boy who’s really shy
Facebook chats and late night texts
Come on is that all I get?

How come you never look me in the eyes
When I see you walk by
Why don’t you come back over
And just say, hi

(chorus)
Shy guy you’re playin with my heart
Its like you’re runnin from the start
Turn around this ain’t second grade
This girl don’t got no cooties
(this girl is fine)
I’m tired of this so just
Stop bein shy

(Verse)
When you’re with a shy guy
It’s like dealing with split personalities
You say you want me
But you can’t even show me

When you’re with you’re friends
I see you check me out
Why don’t you get the nerve
And just ask me out

(chorus)
Shy guy you’re playin with my heart
Its like you’re runnin from the start
Turn around this ain’t second grade
This girl don’t got no cooties
I’m tired of this so just
Stop bein shy
(Bridge)
Here is where
I break it down for you
I promise I don’t bite
Even if you think that
I might
We’re dealing with a shy boy
Yeah, I’m crushin on a shy guy

(Chorus)
Shy guy you’re playin with my heart
Its like you’re runnin from the start
Turn around this ain’t second grade
This girl don’t got no cooties
I’m tired of this so just
Stop bein shy

2tx
Shy guy you’re playin with my heart
Its like you’re runnin from the start

We’re dealing with a shy boy
Yeah, I’m crushin on a shy guy

On My Own

Written By: Devon & Erin Franklin

On my own”
By Erin & Devon Franklin

Opening
Walking home and the rains just getting started
Why does the weather always seem to know,
When I’m lonely n cold and missing you?

Verse 1
It’s been a while since I fell for you
Was I a fool to think it could last?
So much history, so much past
Years ago I broke your heart
But now you’re breaking mine

Chorus
If this is one of life’s little tests
I’m scared that I won’t pass
Cause I’m young and in love
lost and confused
I don’t wanna need you tonight
I don’t wanna need you tomorrow
I just wanna be okay on my own

Verse 2
No one - held me like you did
Or made me feel as good as you
I’ve tried out other lips
and been in other arms
Just hoping I’d find someone (anyone)
To fill the hole you left in me

Chorus
If this is one of life’s little tests
I’m scared that I won’t pass
Cause I’m young and in love
lost and confused
I don’t wanna need you tonight
I don’t wanna need you tomorrow
I just wanna be okay on my own

Bridge
But no one gets me like you do
Or makes me laugh as hard as you
It always comes back, back to you
So I wish you’d come back, back to me
I have to be strong, to let go and hold on

Chorus
If this is one of life’s little tests
I’m scared that I won’t pass
Cause I’m young and in love
lost and confused
I don’t wanna need you tonight
I don’t wanna need you tomorrow
I just wanna be okay on my own

So I’m walking home and the rain’s just getting started
lately the weather always fits my mood

Rumors” By Devon Franklin

(Verse 1)
Walking to school feeling really good
Turn to see you staring at me
You’re so mean mean
Why you so mean
Makin up lies like you know me

I hear those things you’re saying
Who says you’re better than me
You’re not cool cool
No you’re not cool
Stop pretending you’re ms perfect

(Chorus)
The rumors you spread they run through my head
Got me got me got me goin crazy
Got me got me got me goin crazy
The rumors you spread they run through my head
Got me got me got me goin crazy
Got me got me got me goin crazy

(Verse 2)
Turn around I’m ready for you
So you better be ready for me
It’s goin down down
It’s goin down
Girl you gonna get what you deserve

Here we go we’re ready for the knockout
This is where you stop acting wack now
Looking like a fool fool
Looking like a fool
Now you’re wishing you held your tongue

(Bridge)
Everyday when I come to school
I hear people talking
it drives me so insane
you don’t even know me
so stop acting like you do
if these rumors don’t stop
Im gonna POP POP POP

(Chorus)
The rumors you spread they run through my head
Got me got me got me goin crazy
Got me got me got me goin crazy
The rumors you spread they run through my head
Got me got me got me goin crazy
Got me got me got me goin crazy

(Verse 3)
Soon the tables will turn on you
And everyone’s gonna see right through
All your lie lies
Your stupid lies
Now its time for things to change

I’m over this now you’re wasting my time
You’re not worth another line
Now I’m done done
Now I’m done
Won’t be listening anymore

(Chorus)
The rumors you spread they run through my head
Got me got me got me goin crazy
Got me got me got me goin crazy
The rumors you spread they run through my head
Got me got me got me goin crazy
Got me got me got me goin crazy
