Lyrics

The Other Side

Written By: Ivy League

The Other Side
I just gotta be real, my life’s, not, a game with a start and an end. You say that I’m way out of line and that’s fine. I know I know, I’m not perfect. I know I know, it’s okay. What was non sense, makes more sense, still I’m digging deeper.

I can see the other side, and it’s calling me out. From the darkness into light, from my fence line. Open the door, a darkness you could never know. Laying awake, I dream. And it’s calling me out.

This is, my life. This is, the time. Will you let me stand my ground? Or back down. I know I know what you’re thinking. I know I know, that it’s wrong. I know I’ve got to learn, but seeing is beyond these closed eyes.

The Only Escape

Written By: Ivy League

The Only Escape
Holding on long as I can, can’t forget about you know. I’m coming clean what a mess that you’re digging in. Try to give give give you everything but you won’t take. So now you burn your stains and ignite my mind with fire!

Well I’m out! You won’t see me here I’m gone! Doesn’t matter if I’m wrong, cause I’m going my own way and that’s how I’m gonna stay!

Hey now look at you, you live to watch them fail. Cut me wide open, step inside and come free my mind. Lie lie lie, just to prove that you’re in the right. You wish me now the worst farewell of all.

You could show me how to live my life. I could grow up out of my shell, say you’re right. I could change now that it’s your time, or remain in my private hell. The only escape is to prove your mind!

Hold On

Written By: Ivy League

Hold on

Hold on hold on, don’t run away
Hold on hold on, you’ve got to stay

When you come to me I, I run away
When I see you I, I feel the pain
When you speak to me I , I get so drained
Try try try try but I, I’m not okay
But not today, not today, today I won’t, run away

I’m divided against myself
Mind’s eye sees you pain’s numb for awhile
Torn up wanting to make the call
Try try try try but I gave my all
But not today, not today, today I won’t run away

I can feel it I’ve got to change
When you need me I’m here to stay.

Rest of Your Life

Written By: Ivy League

Rest of your life
Could have been greatly disappointing. Could have been here holding your warning. We’re coming to an end. I never promised you that I wouldn’t bring you harm. I won’t bring you harm, I won’t bring you harm.

So walk on, walk on, for the rest of your life.

Yesterday you brought me sorrow. Face in hands thoughts of tomorrow. You buried me alive. Reality hits and it’s so cold out side, of your arms, of your arms.

Yeah, this song is for you. Keep my body safe while I’m away.

Let it Burn

Written By: Ivy League

LET IT BURN

Guess I better let it burn! Burn!
Gotta let it burn this time, I won’t, come this time tomorrow.

By the way, noticed you didn’t close the door
Left it more open like 100 times before
Its not as if I’ve been tallying a score
But oh how you will try…
To get away with all your manipulation
Guess it’s my cue to beg for your reasons
Don’t really mind if it’s that time of season
Cause oh the cupboards look bare

It was you who introduced me to your charm
Always forgiving, never intending harm
Let down defenses, disarming alarms
And oh, let me walk right through…
I always knew that this was just a probation
Now you’re on trial on my many allegations
You claim that they’re just false accusations
But oh the verdict’s not good…

Let it BURN!

Inside of Me

Written By: Ivy League

Inside of Me

I’ve fallen short of what was, your expectations
I tried so hard, to stand my ground
I’m sick with all of the sorrow, and pain I’ve caused you
I never meant, for this to be

Cuz your always there for me, knowin how it’s gonna be,
never meant, to let you down
and you’ve given me so much more to remind me, that I need

This standard that I’ve found, not gonna fall back down!

Inside of me’s a piece of your heart your light,
A fire that’s never going out, no matter how cold outside it gets

It’s hard to forget, I tried your patience
a thousand times, and still you’re there
And when I unfold, you elevate me
I feel at ease, when you’re around

Cuz your always there for me, knowin how it’s gonna be
never meant, to let you down
and you’ve given me so much more to remind me, that I need

This standard that I’ve found, not gonna fall back down!

Broken Dream

Written By: Ivy League

Broken Dream
You can not, heal my broken heart in spite, of every thing you say
the feeling, of emptiness remains although, you say it's you not me
and what I wanted us to be, is now a shattered broken dream,
tell me to be strong, to be strong

Please, let me stand beside you, not behind you
Please, let me stand beside you, not behind you

You can not, change the way I feel, or change the way I am
rejection, has killed my one last hope inside, you're every thing to me,
and what I wanted us to be, is now a shattered broken dream, tell me to be strong, to be strong,

I tried so hard to make you happy, but it's good enough
All you had to say was sorry, but it's not your fault,
believe that tomorrow will make it okay, maybe tomorrow

Sleep with the Angels

Written By: Ivy League

Sleep with the Angels

Don’t cry sleep with the angels when you’re gone I’ll be fine,
While the tears fall rest in remembrance we gave our all,

To end this curse, love hurts,
End this curse, love hurts

Heaven’s filled up with rain clouds and memories, storm my mind,
When you think, think of the good times,

Don’t cry sleep with the angels when you’re gone I’ll be fine,
While the tears fall rest in remembrance we gave our all, to end this curse, love hurts.
