Lyrics

Bits & Pieces

Written By: Jess Healy

All I want is your bits and pieces next to this
Where I can wrap my arms around you
I try to resist but you look so good I can’t get over it
And I want to be around you

Anytime you’re with me
Anywhere I can be around you

Because I adore you
I was made for you
My life keeps getting better and better
Cause we’re together

If time could hold its hands and wait for a little bit
Then I’d be still to be with you
One look and I see my future looking back at me
Feeling just like it should

Anytime you’re with me
Anywhere I can be around you

Because I adore you
I was made for you
I could stay with you forever
No more bad days when you look my way
My life keeps getting better and better
Cause we’re together

Coming home and I fall into your body
Waking up wrapped up tight in your arms
Doesn’t matter if you have any money
Doesn’t matter cause I know…

Because I adore you
I was made for you
My life keeps getting better and better
Cause we’re together

Pretty Little Horses

Written By: Jess Healy

I said please don’t leave me
I said please don’t go
You said, I was already leavin’
You said, I can’t take anymore

I promise that next time I’ll be different
I promise that next time I’ll make fun of it
I promise that next time, next time, next time.

I don’t need no pretty little horses
I don’t need no beach and a sunset
I just need you
I need you
I need you
I need you

So don’t go away
Tomorrows a better day
That gets better and better and better than the first time

I promise that next time I’ll be different
I promise that next time I’ll make fun of it
I promise that next time, next time, next time.

I don’t need no pretty little horses
I don’t need no beach and a sunset
I just need you
I need you
I need you
I need you

I know, I know I said it before
But one more time, just one more time
I know, I know, I know
But I’m willing to fight.

I need you
I need you
I need you…

Frozen

Written By: Jess Healy

All this time apart but yet it seems
That I still find myself wrapped in thoughts of you
No one else has found a way to me
Like when I opened up my heart to something new

Why did we say goodbye?
Tonight’s first time, I’ve seen you in a long time
And I was…

Frozen when I looked at you
The way you walked into the room
Like I was hit with years of memories
Frozen

I wonder if you ever think of me
Or if you think about the life we could have knew
With all this time apart… well I still dream
Cause there’s a part of me that’s holdin on to you

Why did we say goodbye?
Tonight’s first time, I’ve seen you in a long time
And I was…

Frozen when I looked at you
The way you walked into the room
Like I was hit with years of memories
Frozen

If I don’t give up
If I love you that much
If I told you that I understand
If I gave you away just to find you someday
Would I find myself inside your hands?
Cause I’m…

Frozen…
Frozen…

Stronger

Written By: Jess Healy

Everything I thought you could be
Everything I thought we would see
Got lost in what you can’t take back
Looking at a broken girl
Eighteen years to build her world
That came crashing at her feet

Red letter on her chest
Marked the words that he said he didn’t do
Standing tall yet all alone
But looking back she’ll always know

That she’s stronger
Cause she knows that he knows she knows the truth
And she’s stronger from the pain and the lies she went through
And she knows she’s gonna be… Better than you

I wish I could take her hand
Tell her that I understand what she’s been through.
I wish I could mend her heart
Fix the words that tear her apart, cause if they only knew

Red letter on her chest
Marked the words that he said he didn’t do
Standing tall yet all alone
But looking back she’ll always know

That she’s stronger
Cause she knows that he knows she knows the truth
And she’s stronger from the pain and the lies she went through
And she knows she’s gonna be… Better than you

She’ll walk away
She won’t look back in time
She’ll know she’s better off this way
She’s better off this way

And she’s stronger
Cause she knows that he knows she knows the truth
And she’s stronger from the pain and the lies she went through
And she knows she’s gonna be… Better than you

And she’s stronger cause she knows that he knows the truth.

Being With You

Written By: Jess Healy

Life just stepped up
I finally got what I wanted
My way to you
And time just gave up
And every hope in my heart opened up to you.

And oh how the years have gone by
And I’m as lost as I was, when we started the first time

Cause you got the stuff,
That is more than enough
And it’s making me happy just being with you
When I’m wrong, when I’m right
When there’s dark in my night
And your making me happy Just being with you

And if I’m lost in my thoughts
Than I’m lost on this road that ends with you
And every time I wake up
Fills a light in my heart when I wake to you

And oh how the years have gone by
And I’m as lost as I was, when we started the first time

Cause you got the stuff,
That is more than enough
And it’s making me happy just being with you
When I’m wrong, when I’m right
When there’s dark in my night
And your making me happy Just being with you

If there’s ever a time when your heart says give up
I will wait for you
And if there’s ever a time when you’re old and get stuck
I will carry you

Cause you got the stuff,
That is more than enough
And it’s making me happy just being with you
When I’m wrong, when I’m right
When there’s dark in my night
And your making me happy
Just being with you

So Good

Two Feet, Heart beat

To what they say about me and you
Your lips to your feet

And I believe we’re gonna make it through
