Lyrics

Remember Me

Written By: Jamison Rotz

A table set for two, a sunset with you
Just for a moment
I wonder what could be if you could stay with me, I guess I’ll never know it
I never thought when I woke up yesterday
That I’d be sitting here wishing I could stay
But our lives are miles apart and we’re taking separate planes

So when we leave tonight
Just remember
The one you met on that summer day
And when we live our lives, but not together
Think of me because I will not forget

I’m used to being strong, until you came along, now I’m fallin’ in somehow
I guess I never knew, that in an instant you
Could turn me right around
But life is cruel in all the strangest ways
You get a glimpse and you have to walk away
It seems a dream come true, but it’s only for a day

So when we leave tonight
Just remember
The one you met on that summer day
And when we live our lives, but not together
Think of me because I will not forget

In another place and time from this
We could have everything we’re gonna miss
And we could leave this place together
But we’re just strangers crossing paths
And soon our time here will have past
Why do things this good, never seem to last?

So when we leave tonight
Just remember
The one you met on that summer day
And when we live our lives, but not together
Think of me because I will not forget

Waiting On You

Written By: Jamison Rotz

Verse 1:
It seemed to me we were happy
Till you showed up at my door
The look in your eyes
The force in your smile
And the chill that’s in your voice
You’re telling me we’re not over you just, need some time alone

Verse 2:
So go if you want to
I won’t try to stop you
I won’t try to make you stay
Just don’t try to tease me or lead me along
Don’t try to tell me we’lll be ok
I know that you don’t feel the same anymore
Cause I’ve heard it all before

Chorus:
So baby you can go
But I want you to know
I’m not staying here just to wait by the phone.
You can take your time,
But I’m not wasting mine
Stringin right along while you’re draggin the line.
So now its up to you
If this is what you choose
Baby, then I hope that you’re thinking it through
Cause baby you can go oh,
But I won’t be waiting on you.

Verse 3
If this is the end
Baby please don’t pretend
You better give it to me straigh
And if you kiss me goodbye
I know I’ll miss you tonight
But I don’t wanna play this game.
Cause I won’t do it again the way it happened back then.
I’m gonna make you tell me right where I stand.

Chorus

Bridge:
Saying we’ll be alright
You just need some time
Time on your own
But I know better
And I’m not waiting alone

Chorus

Life Grabs You (And Starts to Rock)

Written By: Mellott/Mark/Ashley

It used to be I wanted this
My world revolved around your kiss
But times are changing, and I am too
I just don’t feel the same for you

I know that you don’t understand
Ending this wasn’t what you’d planned
But your plans aren’t what I need
‘Cause this time I’m thinking about me

If you've ever dreamed that you can fly
You’ll know that rush you (just) can't deny
Excitement's runnin thru your veins
When fin'lly it's your time to play
You can feel it, life grabs you, and starts to rock

We've (I’ve) got this world to explore
You’re holdin on, baby I want more
I need the space to find my way,
And you’re still stuck in yesterday

My body's movin to the beat
I'm stayin outta sync with time
I won't be dancin to the rules
I'm only gonna rock to mine

If you've ever dreamed that you can fly
You’ll know that rush you (just) can't deny
Excitement's runnin thru your veins
When fin'lly it's your time to play
You can feel it, life grabs you, and starts to rock

Beautiful Broken

Written By: © 2007 Sharp Objects

You wanted me, said I was Beautiful Broken
And I would always be your Angel when I’ m fallen
But what does that say about the way you love me
If I’m only beautiful broken

Where have you been now that I got it together
I’m alright now but I’m reaching back
For a memory of you looking me in the eye
I was falling to pieces, you were picking them up
You were right there by my side
I’m starting to get it, you only hold me when I cry

You wanted me, said I was Beautiful Broken
And I would always be your Angel when I’ m fallen
But what does that say about the way you love me
If I’m only beautiful broken

Was it the blast, you were drawn to it all
It was a shattering sound and my sharp edges
Running to me when I’m low get you high
I’m starting to get it, I’m starting to get it
Are You starting to get it, I need you when my tears are dry

You wanted me, said I was Beautiful Broken
And I would always be your Angel when I’ m fallen
But what does that say about the way you love me
If I’m only beautiful broken

Oh, Tell Me What Happened
You treat me bad When I don’t need to be sad

You wanted me, said I was Beautiful Broken
And I would always be your Angel when I’m fallen
But what does that say about the way you love me
If I’m only beautiful broken
