Lyrics

See Me Now

Written By: Katie Ainge

If only you, could see me now
Under a flashing marquis
I’m singing about that day that I decided
You were no good, good for me
Well I climbed the stairs
And I took your call
With every step I took your fall
If only you could see me now
If only you could see me now
I've started looking for a reason
To write love songs again
And each time I think I've found it
Your gravity pulls me back in
Well I pray for rain
And I hope the wind
Can take away your name again
If only you could see me now
If only you could see me now
I won’t back down, I won’t give in
‘cause I’m not who I was back then
If only you could see me now
If only you could see me now
I've stopped waiting
I started changing
The way
That I was was thinking
And hoping
For a change
Spending nights
Underneath these lights
You never really faded away
If only you could see me now
If only you could see me now
If only you could see me now
If only you could see me now
I won’t back down, and I won’t give in
‘cause I’m not who I was back then
If only you could see me now
If only you could see me now
If only you could see me now
If only you could see me now

Now Or Never

Written By: Katie Ainge

It's long past the sun went down
Can't see the stars over the lights of the town
Is this old or is this new
This nights one million shades of blue

What would you say
Would it be ok

It's just my nerves
That keep me at bay
From saying all the things that I want to say
But It's only so long they can hold me back
My need to move forward is keepin me on track

What would you say
It's now or never while the conversation fades
Would it be ok
It's now or never
While the moon shows his face
What would you say

We're seeing things so far away
That the lights it has to travel
Day after day to reach us here on top of this hill
Not one moment will die but the seconds they will

What would you say
It's now or never while the conversation fades
Would it be ok
It's now or never
While while the moon shows his face
Would it be ok
It's now or never
It's now or never ya
what would you say?

All I Need

Written By: Katie Ainge

All I Need

When I am alone and no one is near

When my heart is stuck dwelling in fear

If there's nothing left that I have to give

Even if I return back to my sin
You love me still

You love me still

So I will follow you always where
ever you lead

You are a light and a lamp for my feet

Your love is all that I ever will need

You are all I need

If I hurt you again and if I turn my head

Even if I try but fail instead

Every time that I call your name

Through every ounce of heart
break and pain

You love me still

You love me still

So I will follow you always wherever you lead

You are a light and a lamp for my feet

Your love is all that I ever will need

You are all I need

There's nothing that I can do

You will always pursue my heart

So I will follow you always wherever you lead

You are a light and a lamp for my feet

Your love is all that I ever will need

You are all I need

Lift Up My Eyes

Written By: Katie Ainge

Lift Up My Eyes

I lift up my eyes to the hills
From where comes all of my help
Lord, you are so good, so good
You're the maker of the heavens and the earth

You don't slumber or sleep
In the times I am weak
Well the sun in the day and the moon at night do no harm
You watch over my life

Whenever my footing is unsteady
I turn to You Lord for You are ready
To shield me from harm yeah you won't let me fall
You're the maker of the heavens and it all

You don't slumber or sleep
In the times I am weak
Well the sun in the day and the moon at night do no harm
You watch over my life

Whenever I come and Wherever I go
Both now and forever more
You watch over my life

Fond of You

Written By: Katie Ainge

Fond of you
When you're near me my feet don't touch the ground
In the sunlight your eyes are flashing brown
I want to tell you everything but I can't make a sound
You feel like an ocean and I would surely love to drown

My eyes rarely stay focused in one place for very long
But I catch my gaze lingering for more than just one song
This I promise early, I will never do you wrong
I can never wander too far from the place that I belong

I've been waiting hesitating
Holding myself back from saying
Anything that's indicating
Of how fond I am of you
But when I'm bolder then I'll show you
Just how much that I adore you
But for now, for now this song will do

I used to be a wanderer, my life was set askew
I wandered down so many paths and not one of them was true
And now that I'm where I belong I know just what to do
I want to be the ocean air that's surrounding you
