Lyrics

Leave the Light On

Written By: Grace Weber

Leave the Light On

VERSE 1?

Leave the light on, I’ll be coming home soon?I’m afraid that my soul’s gone, I’m ambushed in this unfamiliar cocoon
And I know I’ve been running ?And I know you’re tired

CHORUS?

But leave the light on for me?Though such a long time to feel alone?Yes leave the light on for me?I am coming home, home?

VERSE 2?

It feels like you’re dying and time is like gold?And all of the dreams that we made are embarrassed ?Cuz we can’t grow old
CHORUS?But ill leave the light on for you?Though such a long time to feel alone?Yes ill leave the light on for you?Though our roots are turning to stone

BRIDGE?

Welcome back ill take you in, not so sure of yourself this time?Or last time, but its our time to draw the line?Blaming change stiff to move, how we bled and how we grew ?All i want you to say

CHORUS?

Is I’ll leave the light on for you?Though such a long time to feel alone, yes ill leave the light on for you?I am coming home?home

& Heart

Written By: Grace Weber

& Heart

VERSE 1
The fall is here, my sister’s home again
A baby waits beneath her skin
Who she is, who she’s meant to be
Is sweetly tied to what’s within

PRE-CHORUS
And we cross the stepping stones
Grateful I don’t have to go alone
Is all that I could ever know all that I could ever hope to be

CHORUS
If this is my last request
To take love and make the best
I’d fall down on broken leaves
And live for the simple things
Oh I’d take every moment and hope be my path
And you take my weary hand, and heart

VERSE 2
Yesterday, I saw my Grandpa’s grave
And I wrote a note, and tried to pray
So many days where I don’t feel ok
Help me find my way

PRE-CHORUS
And we walk among the stones
Hopeful I won’t have to go alone
Is all that I could ever know more than I could ever hope to be

CHORUS
If this is my last request
To take love and make the best
I’d fall down on broken leaves
And live for the simple things
Oh I’d take every moment and hope be my path
And you take my weary hand, and heart
PRE-CHORUS
You’re all that I could ever know
All that I could ever know
And more than I could ever hope to be

CHORUS
If this is my last request
To take love and make the best
I’d fall down on broken leaves
And live for the simple things
Oh I’d take every moment and hope be my path
I’d follow your footprints and never look back
I’ll be OK when you take my hand
and heart

Everything to Me

Written By: Grace Weber

EVERYTHING TO ME:

VERSE 1
I said:
I wanna be so many things, I wanna fly around the world
Cuz I can’t stop living
Need to see when I land where I’ll fall
So could you love me for me?
If I don’t know who that me is supposed to be yet
Would you stay, wait and see who I can be

CHORUS
And he said:
You could be the day, the night, and the season
You could be the time, the place, and the reason
You could be the sun, the moon, and the clouds in the sky
Yeah, you could be the smiles, the tears, and the laughter
You can chase all the dreams that you’re after
You can be anything that you need
Cuz you’re everything to me
Yeah you’re everything to me

VERSE 2
I said:
I wanna sing ‘till I can’t breathe
I wanna laugh everyday until there’s no tomorrow’s
Wanna dance with all I am until I can’t
See cuz all I know in certainty
Is I’m gonna grow I’m gonna change and cause some pain so would you stay and wait and see who I can be?

CHORUS
And he said:
You could be the day, the night, and the season
You could be the time, the place, and the reason
You could be the sun, the moon, and the clouds in the sky
Yeah, you could be the smiles, the tears, and the laughter
And you can chase all the dreams that you’re after
You can be anything that you need, cuz you’re everything to me

BRIDGE
He said, let me stand by you, no matter what you do
I feel at home when I’m with you
He said, do you feel it too?

CHORUS
So I said,
You could be the day, the night, and the season
You could be the time, the place, and the reason
You could be the sun, the moon, and the clouds in the sky
Yeah, you could be the smiles, the tears, and the laughter
And you can chase all the dreams that you’re after
You can be anything that you need, cuz you’re everything to me

Perfect Stranger

Written By: Grace Weber

I see myself in strangers
On the subway on the street
I find a little comfort when our eyes meet
I know it's rude to stare to long sir
But were we friends three lives ago
I see myself in strangers
In the people I don't know

But who am I without you?
I don't know, but I want to

Could you be my perfect stranger?
I need a little danger
Lose who you are, we can stay in the dark
And you'll be my perfect stranger

I met you on the corner
Then you went there in my mind
Creeping to the surface
Now I see you all the time
You don't need to know my name no
Let's just stay inside the game oh
I see myself in strangers
In the people I don't know

But who am I without you?
I don't know, but I want to

Could you be my perfect stranger?
I need a little danger
Lose who you are, we can stay in the dark
And you'll be my perfect stranger

You're a throwback, a bad plan
But this is something that I've never had
tying up some loose threads
Cleaning out my head
Momma said don't ever talk
To people you don't know about
But I can't help it gonna try it out

Could you be my perfect stranger?
I need a little danger
Lose who you are, we can stay in the dark
And you'll be my perfect stranger

Til I Hurt You

Written By: Grace Weber

When did I know it was over?
When did I hear the record scratch? Why did I say that I loved you?
Just before I turned my back
Last night I had a dream we were together, but I woke up to an empty hollow room Did I help you build these walls we had between us
Or did it creep up like the blood beneath the bruise?
I never knew who I was
Till I met you
And I never knew what love was till you held me the whole night through And I never knew what hurt was, till I hurt you
Stare at the screen to remember Blue light try to take me back
The photographs say we were happy I guess I needed more than that
Last night I read the stars were in my favor
That I’d find another romance in my time
But what I needed was to know that I could labor For a person who deserves a happy life
I never knew who I was
Till I met you
And I never knew what love was till you held me the whole night through And I never knew what hurt was, till I hurt you
Be careful what you wish for dear
Is it everything you hoped for now
Did you know what you were in for, no Can’t have one without the other, no
Is that what I discovered
If I could change me for you I would, oh cuz
I never knew who I was
Till I met you
And I never knew what love was till you held me the whole night through And I never knew what hurt was, till I hurt you
