One Of These Days -KChari

Written By: Miriam KChari

© 2006 KChari
You’re just not what I saw
I think your soul would burn like straw
You’re a waste of my time
Go live on someone else’s dime
You’ve never fought to survive
Or worked a day to stay alive
And it’s high time you know

One of these days
Your luck’s gonna run out
One of these days
You’re gonna be found out
One of these days
I’m gonna call you out
One of these days
Your lucks gonna run out
One of these days
You’re gonna be found out
One of these days
I’m gonna call you out

I know what you’re about
I think your lies will find you out
You say you love and care
But my heart’s left so thread bare
Like a leech that never dies
You kill your host to survive
And it’s high time you know

One of these days
Your luck’s gonna run out
One of these days
You’re gonna be found out
One of these days
I’m gonna call you out
One of these days
Your lucks gonna run out
One of these days
You’re gonna be found out
One of these days
I’m gonna call you out

If I were you, I’d run away
If I were you, I wouldn’t stick around
If I were you, I’d start to pray
Cause I know

One of these days
Your luck’s gonna run out
One of these days
You’re gonna be found out
One of these days
I’m gonna call you out
One of these days
Your lucks gonna run out
One of these days
You’re gonna be found out
One of these days
I’m gonna call you out
One of these days
One of these days
One of these days

Voices -KChari

Written By: Miriam KChari

© 2008 KChari
Voices tell me
I'll never be good enough
Voices tell me
It’s my fault
Voices tell me
You’ll never understand
Voices tell me
I’m alone

I beat myself into the ground Yeah, yeah
I beat myself into the ground
Yeah, yeah
I beat myself into the ground
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Take me away from here
Hold me close to you
Cause it’s better it we’re lost together
If I’m really lost forever
I’d rather be lost with you

Voices ask me
Am I running out of time
Voices ask me
What’s it worth
Voices ask me
Am I gonna get you back
Voices ask me
What went wrong

I pushed away and couldn’t explain
Why
I pushed away and couldn’t explain
Why, why
I pushed away and couldn’t explain
Why, why, why

Take me away from here
Hold me close to you
Cause it’s better it we’re lost together
If I’m really lost forever
I’d rather be lost with you

You’re the only one I want around
You’re the only one I can’t forget
You’re the only one who makes me believe I can turn this all around

Voices tell me
I’ll never be good enough
Voices tell me
It’s my fault
Voices tell me
You’ll never understand
Voices tell me
I’m alone

Then I wake up you’re next to me
Yeah, yeah
Then I wake up you’re next to me
Yeah
Then I wake up you’re next to me
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Woah
Oh
Woah
Oh

Crash With Me -KChari

Written By: Miriam KChari

© 2006 KChari
Would your heart ache
If you could ever know
A moment where you feel
A second where you hope
Everyone has pain
That no one even sees
Close your eyes
Hold my hand
And crash with me
If no one knew what love was
And no one ever cried
How cold could life get
With those scars
So, even when you’re hurting
Look around and see
Someone comes to save you
Crash with me
If life could be
A journey, a journey without needs
Then you could walk
And never even hurt
Would you let me help you
One moment ease your mind
Give you just a chance to
Crash with me
You’re hopeless and you’re lost
Without a bit of joy
You’ll get a second chance
Just have faith
When your life gets dark
Without a guiding light
Remember that I’m here
Crash with me
Would your heart ache
If you could ever know
Love could be the answer
A reason for it all
Don’t you turn your back
On everything you need
Close your eyes
Hold my hand
And crash with me

Sketch

Sketch
© 2008 KChari
Lyrics by: Miriam KChari
Vs. 1
As the crowd begins to grow
Looks like a crime scene from a tv show
You’re at the back of the room
Know we’ll be together soon
Always seems to come to this
Can’t resist the thought of your kiss
May as well hand you a gun
And get this done

Ch.
So sketch, sketch, draw a sketch
Sketch, sketch, draw a sketch
Around my body and take your time
So sketch, sketch, draw a sketch
Sketch, sketch, draw a sketch
Around my body

Vs. 2
One thing that’s always the same
Yeah it doesn’t even matter what’s your name
The more you’re addicted to
The more I’m addicted to you
I know you’re ready to crack
But that just keeps me coming back
May as well hand you a gun
Let’s get this done

Bridge:
White outline you’re sketched around me
Everything fades all around me
Sketch you’re my only proof
You’re my only evidence
Even if the truth is never found
At least I’ll know you cared enough to

Vs. 3
This little story ends soon
Cause you’re my sketch at the back of the room
You put me on my back
You stage the perfect attack
Sketch now, nice and slow
Sketch now, take your time
Sketch now, nice and slow

Hurt

Written By: Nine Inch Nails

Nine Inch Nails
The Downward Spiral (1994)
Hurt

i hurt myself today
to see if i still feel
i focus on the pain
the only thing that's real
the needle tears a hole
the old familiar sting
try to kill it all away
but i remember everything
what have i become?
my sweetest friend
everyone i know
goes away in the end
you could have it all
my empire of dirt
i will let you down
i will make you hurt
i wear my crown of shit
on my liar's chair
full of broken thoughts
i cannot repair
beneath the stain of time
the feeling disappears
you are someone else
i am still right here
what have i become?
my sweetest friend
everyone i know
goes away in the end
you could have it all
my empire of dirt
i will let you down
i will make you hurt
if i could start again
a million miles away
i would keep myself
i would find a way

What Do I Care

Written By: KChari

Everyday I’m searching for something
Something for me to care about
Everyday I’m finding nothing
Nothing I can’t live without
But life’s not giving me anything
That I thought it would
Life’s not giving me anything
That makes me feel good
I don’t know if I can chase a dream
That all this wasted time already stole
What do I care if I live another day
What do I care if I have nothing to say
What do I care if I never hold the key
To the gates that hold my dreams
What do I care
Everyday I wonder if I’m closer
Closer to getting what I need
Everyday I wonder if I’m closer
Closer to taking over the lead
But I can’t get out of this rut
That I’m living in
I can’t get out of this rut
Don’t know where to begin
I’m so tired of trying to find the brighter side
It takes the heart out of all the tears I cried
What do I care if I live another day
What do I care if I have nothing to say
What do I care if I never hold the key
To the gates that hold my dreams
What do I care
I need someone to tell me
What I should care about
I don’t feel much of anything, anything anymore
What do I care if I live another day
What do I care if I have nothing to say
What do I care if I never hold the key
To the gates that hold my dreams
What do I care
