Lyrics

Sorry Its You

Written By: Conroy Ross/James Ross

Roll of thunder through the trees
You come to me, you’re my IV
Behind bars I've done no crime
You push me further down the line
You call my name without a sound
I reach out but your just to far
I'm lost without your eyes
cuz you keep me in the dark,
life with you is just so hard

I wanna love you, but I don't know if I can
Try to pick you up, but I can't stand

I'm sorry its you, why I'm so stuck to you
My love do you know why, I can't seem to let you go
You've fallen in, still you're the only one
Long to my heart, I'm sorry too

You aren't there when I say I love you you disappear
When you say I hate you you seem, so sincere
Twists and turns all up your sleeve
You grab my neck and you start to squeeze
Losing my voice listening to you speak
All these words that you repeat

I wanna love you, but I don't know if I can
Try to pick you up, but I can't stand

I'm sorry its you, why I'm so stuck to you
My love do you know why, I can't seem to let you go
You've fallen in, still you're the only one
Long to my heart, I'm sorry too

Weak Legs

Written By: Conroy Ross

Tell me how you stand so tall
I really need to know
Tell me how you fly so high
When your down so high

I hope, that I can hold on
That you can keep forgetting
I can't be strong

I hope, that I can hold on
That you can keep forgetting
I can't be strong, when your on
Weak legs... she says

Let go of this moment
Let go of this heart
Can't try fighting a war
When we're the ones apart
Let go of this moment
Let go of my heart
Can't try fighting a war
When we're the ones apart

Tell me how you stand so tall
I really need to know
Tell me how you fly so high
When your down so high

I don't know why I can't walk
When my legs are broken in half
I don't know why I can't swim
With my arms tied behind my back

she says
Let go of this moment
Let go of this heart
Can't try fighting a war
When we're the ones apart
Let go of this moment
Let go of my heart
Can't try fighting a war
When we're the ones apart

I hope, that I can hold on
That you can keep forgetting X 3
I can't be strong

Let go of this moment
Let go of this heart
Can't try fighting a war
When we're the ones apart
Let go of this moment
Let go of my heart
Can't try fighting a war
When your standing on
Weak Legs, When your standing on
Weak Legs

The Ledge

Written By: James Ross/Conroy Ross

No one wants to see a trace of blood fall down your cheek
Your mind is heavy and your heart is just so weak

I see you standing there again
Nah na no no Nah na no no
Don't you say goodbye
Don't jump from the ledge
My hands across my heart for you
Nah na no no now I'm alone
It's not your time
Don't jump from the ledge

No one wants to see you drop to your knees
Your hearts too weak

I see you standing there again
Nah na no no Nah na no no
Don't you say goodbye
Don't jump from the ledge
My hands across my heart for you
Nah na no no now I'm alone
It's not your time
Don't jump from the ledge

I see you standing there again
Nah na no no Nah na no no
Don't you say goodbye
Don't jump from the ledge
My hands across my heart for you
Nah na no no now I'm alone
It's not your time
Don't jump from the ledge X3
