Lyrics

Laugh Out Loud

Written By: Gina Gonzalez

It's been kind of tough since I came back to life but being with you makes everything alright
I don't need much but you give me alot give me all of your time and everything you've got
Everytime I look for answers I get more confused so I'm
Letting go of everything I thought I new with you I'm gonna start all over
I spent five years at a dead end job couldn't take anymore so I packed my car
I moved out west tried to hang with the crowd I swear I heard the angels laugh out loud
Everytime I've tried to change I've stayed more the same so I'm
Letting go of everything I thought I new with you I'm gonna start all over
Put the past around you
tell me what you think you see
Life isn't some fairytale
Now I know what I want to be
Growing old doesn't have to mean sitting around to die so I'm
letting go of everthing I though I knew with you I'm gonna start all over
