Lyrics

Not for You

Written By: Katie Elizabeth, 2008

Verse 1
Since the day you walked out that door
I’ve gotten pretty good at writing letters.
Since that day my heart has grown so bored
Of expecting more from you than just your letters.

You said you’d send for me
My suitcase catches dust.
You said we’d be free
Now I see I must

Ch –
Send you one last letter from my heart.
One last line that says I gave you my all.
In case it isn’t obvious,
This is not, this is not a love song.

Verse 2
They all say you’ve found another girl.
I don’t mind the whispers or the rumors.
But loneliness fills up my empty world
And grows a sickness in me like a tumor.

You said you’d carry me
I lean on you I fall.
You said we’d be free.
Now I see you’re the freest of them all.

Ch –
And so I’m sending you one last letter from my heart.
One last line that says I gave you my all.
In case it isn’t obvious
This is not, this is not a love song.

One last letter from my heart.
One last line that says, well, you had it all!
Just in case it isn’t obvious
This is not, this is not a love song – not for you.

You Bleed

Written By: Katie Elizabeth, 2008

Verse 1
I can't be the good in me, and baby, be the good in you.
You can't see that love is free, and it don't cost to give me the truth.
Well, you have fun with the hell you run and don't think on what you'll pay
When the time's at hand for the Jukebox Man to get his due and be on his way.

Ch -
I want to love you
The best I can; the best I can.
You need more than I possess.
I can't be the one you bleed.

Verse 2
I'll dignify the question why with an answer you won't expect.
Way down deep in your chest of drawers beats a heart that owes me respect.
You keep it buried underneath the fear you don't want gone.
I think that all you miss you of me is the very fact my blood is warm.

Ch -
I want to love you
The best I can; the best I can.
You need more than I possess.
I can't be the one you bleed.

Bridge -
Shut-up my mind to your promises and the lies.
Get over quick how you broke me down and you made cry.
Pack up my heart cuz to stay here would be a sin!
Boy, you're fun and you're pretty but you’re trouble I know I can't survive if I stay in.

Ch -
I want to love you
The best I can; the best I can.
You need more than I possess.
I can't be the one you bleed.
