Lyrics

Confused

Written By: Matthew James Murphy

Going back and forth on my point of view
You took a piece of me what am I to do?

What are you to me?
What do you think of me?

Chorus:
Do I miss you?
Did I lose you?
Am I falling way too soon?
or am I just really confused?

Got a lot of questions catching up to do
Can't come up with answers when it come to you

What are you to me?
What do you think of me?

Chorus

Bridge:
All this confusion takes up time
If I could only make up my mind
Why should I let you in my life?

Chorus

Figure Me Out

Written By: Matthew James Murphy

Just another day for you to say that you will change your wicked ways
It's empty words to me
Just another guy who thinks that I'm the kind who can't see through a lie
You're all the same to me

Chorus:
You've got me believing you're one thing
You say you want me now
But for you to love me
You've got to know me and take some time to figure me out

Just another story to ignore 'cause I have seen this trick before
It's empty words to me
Just another guy who thinks that I'm this kind who gives out a second try
You're all the same to me

Chorus

Bridge:
So many promises broken
So many words mispoken
And I can say honestly that you
Don't matter to me

Chorus
