Adieu

Written By: Hannah Martin

So I'll take it, and I'll break it
There's no reason now to fake it
They may hate it, can't escape it
I'm no longer the wet blanket
If you want to then you've got to
And it's something that I ought to
Staying true to why I'm not you
As my past is saying “Adieu”
Adieu, adieu, adieu to the liar that we once knew.

As a person of extremes, I think it's time that I came clean
So here's the truth, at least the parts that concern me.
You see, when I get overwhelmed, I get apathetic
Everything I say starts to sound pathetic
And I don't really act my age.
I get lazy, lonely, angry, and phony
And that's not the kind of legacy I want to leave.
You see, who I am is not who I've been
So please don't act like you know what's going on under my skin
Or where the hell I've been.
I've been wearing a mask for oh so long
And I think we all kind of want to see it gone
So now you get to see just how insecure I can be.

So I'll take it, and I'll break it
There's no reason now to fake it
They may hate it, can't escape it
I'm no longer the wet blanket
If you want to then you've got to
And it's something that I ought to
Staying true to why I'm not you
As my past is saying “Adieu”
Adieu, adieu, adieu to the liar that we once knew.

It's a strange, strange thing when you realize you're no longer the hero
Now you're on the outside, counting backwards
But you started from zero.
I used to be a fighter, but now I'm so much better at flight
I used to be a dreamer, but now I don't sleep at night.
It's not just me that gets hurt by this
It's my family, my friends, the boys I've kissed
The people that deserve better.
I just hope it's true that time is the best healer
I don't blame you 'cause if it were me
I wouldn't be on my side, either.

So I'll take it, and I'll break it
There's no reason now to fake it
They may hate it, can't escape it
I'm no longer the wet blanket
If you want to then you've got to
And it's something that I ought to
Staying true to why I'm not you
As my past is saying “Adieu”
Adieu, adieu, adieu to the liar that we once knew.

Now it's time to let go of what I used to be
And accept the things I can't change about me
To stop pretending I'm not a flawed creature
'Cause it's our flaws that allow our best features.

So I'll take it, and I'll break it
There's no reason now to fake it
They may hate it, can't escape it
I'm no longer the wet blanket
If you want to then you've got to
And it's something that I ought to
Staying true to why I'm not you
As my past is saying “Adieu”
Adieu, adieu, adieu to the liar that we once knew.

Fair Weather Friend

Written By: Hannah Martin

I jumped out of a plane yesterday
Gave you my parachute on the way
You didn't say thanks, you just reminded me to always wave.
I landed gently, I focused on that
And you landed all splattered, then lost your hat
You blamed me for the wind and that God didn't make you a bat.

Then the storm came and you spat in my face
And you told me about all your poise and your grace
Oh, you never craved the end
Did you, my fair weather friend?

You tell me such stories why you never win
Somehow I always cheat, but yet you've never sinned
You say I'll die old and cold while everything you touch turns to gold.
Oh my dear friend, there is always a “depends” in your book
Oh my dear frenemy, you love to keep your threats on a hook.

Then the storm came and you spat in my face
And you told me about all your poise and your grace
Oh, you never craved the end
Did you, my fair weather friend?

Smitten

Written By: Hannah Martin

Hey handsome boy with the hazel eyes
You know you've got the power to hypnotize every girl in your line of vision
So careful there with your decision.
'Cause when you smile at me my heart starts pounding
I forget my name and forget my surroundings
I just need to be near you
Can I pretend that you want to be near me, too?
You see you like talking, holding hands, and walking
I like dancing, taking chances
You like princess movies
And I like you.

Hey lover boy, in all of your perfection
You can steer my heart in any old direction
And I suppose that's why I'm so scared
You see, my heart's not quite prepared.
But then again, I suppose I've never found the likes of you
And that freaks me out because now I just can't picture me without you.

And you call me crazy, and I
Call you baby, and I
I just want to hold your hand.
And you say I'm lovely, that you
Might just love me, and I
Well I think I understand
So hold my hand.

Oh dear of mine you're oh so fine
Your presence is simply divine
I get the shivers when you speak my name
No one makes it sound quite the same.
When you walk my way I feel as though I'm on top of the world
'Cause I know that I'm your girl
I'm your girl.

And you call me crazy, and I
Call you baby, and I
I just want to hold your hand.
And you say I'm lovely, that you
Might just love me, and I
Well I think I understand
So hold my hand
As you hold my heart.
Hold my hand.
