Lyrics

So Many Things

Written By: Jeryl Orsino

So Many Things
so many things fall on the edge of a dream
is it you is it me
how many times you let them fall on me
when it all is falling into place
is it real what's the deal
so wont you wipe that dumb look off your face
cant you see it's just me
So many things fall on me
everyday
all of those things i dont see
when I'm thinkin things aren't what they seem
real or dream
I awake and you're not here with me
can't you see
so many things fall on the edge of a dream
is it you is it me
how many times you let them fall on me
So many things fall on me
everyday
all of those things i dont see
Whats the deal
So many things fall on me
are they real
all of those things i dont see

Stupid

Written By: Jeryl Orsino

I want an MTV life where there's never a minute
flowers in my hair and a big chair to sit in
roller coaster ride are you feeling stupid
I don't care what you think of me
I don't care what you think of me
I called you a jerk and you wouldn't admit it
took my favorite shirt and you didn't return it
patches on my jeans yeah you're really stupid
I don't care what you think of me
the trouble with you is that you're troubled with me
in your safe world I'm your reality
I gave you my heart I thought it couldn't break
I made a big mistake
a really bike mistake
oh what a big mistake
if the new shoes and the hair doesn't do it
get with the program you're to closed up to know it
sitting in your room are you feeling stupid
I don't care what you think of me
I don't care what you think of me
bumper sticker sayings put your cards on the table
new girl on your arm just sit home watching cable
wish you were with me are you feeling stupid
I don't care what you think of me
I don't care what you think of me
the trouble with you is that you're troubled with me
in your safe world I'm your reality
I gave you my heart I thought it couldn't break
I made a big mistake
a really bike mistake
oh what a big mistake
I don't care what you think
I don't care what you think
I don't care what you think of me
I don't care what you think of me
I don't care what you think of me
I don't care what you think of me
