All You Gave Me

Written By: K. Johnson

All You Gave Me
By Keshawnta Johnson

Verse 1
Seems like you've been gone so long
Called you every time something went wrong
Sometimes you just knew and you called me
It was like we had some kind of telepathy
Slowly I persevered with your help
You made me a better version of myself
It's been so hard letting go
In your absence you should know

Chorus
When it was dark you led me to the light
On the brink of death you gave me life
You saw me falling and guided my steps
If I needed it you'd give me your last breath
When I thought my life would drown me
You wrapped your arms around me
You were my beacon in the dark
I was Noah you were my ark.
I am the woman you made me
For all you gave me

Verse 2
I reached heights I never knew were possible
You made improbable seem plausible
So I weathered through every storm
Knowing you were there to keep me warm
You hugged me tighter than anyone
Your love shined brighter than any sun
Even though I had a mom and dad
You loved me with all you had
Taught me to reach for the sky
I'll always be the girl you taught to fly

Chorus

Verse 3
For every voyage in my life that failed
You were there to reset my sail
Smiled when I made you want to cry
Hardest thing in my life was saying goodbye
I still talk to you like you’re near
Your spirit calms all my fear
Now you’re the brightest star in the night sky
Every time I think about you I might cry

Just Another Girl

Written By: K. Johnson


Verse 1
All my emotional cries
Got tired of drowning in the ocean of lies
You told me
Just needed you to hold me
But you were never there
Did you ever care

Chorus
Or was I just another girl
Who was a passing phase
Made me your girlfriend but it was just a phrase
Was I just another girl
Blinded by the lies
You told as you looked into my eyes
Was I
Was I
Just another girl

Verse 2
Did you ever love me like you said
Did you just say it to get me in your bed
Did you ever feel the way I felt
Or was I just another notch in your belt
Another warm body to lay next to
Was I important was I special

Chorus

Verse 3
Trying my best to act like you didn't hurt me
Yet I cry at night wondering why’d you desert me
Was what we had real to you
Did I ever really appeal to you
Or was a Miss Right Now until Miss Right came along
Were your feelings for me ever really that strong

Chorus

Just Let Me Breathe

Written By: K. Johnson

Verse 1
You said it was over, I cried but I let you go
My heart hasn't healed yet and I still love you so
Trying to move on but you keep showing up at my house
I'm still in love, so I can't bring myself to kick you out
This is just a game to you and you're not playing fair
How can I move on from you if you won't go anywhere

Chorus
Baby, I just want to be done with you
Can't spend another night under you
You won't just let me breathe
I just want this nightmare to end
I don't want any benefits of being your friend
You won't just let me breathe

Verse 2
Said you were leaving but you won't stay left
I'm trying to deal with it's over but you won't let me catch my breath
But every time I turn around there you are
You ended things let's keep our distance very far
Can't get over you if you won't go away
Now you won't leave but when I begged you wouldn't stay

Chorus

Bridge
I can't get over you if I'm always under you
You wouldn't want the same thing done to you
I'm stuck, you're free to do as you please
I just want you to stay gone every time you leave

Verse 3
I'm just searching for a sliver of daylight
But you keep hanging around and it just ain't right
Now you don't want me with anyone else
But you didn't want me for yourself
You can't have everything you want in this world
Please remember that I'm no longer your girl

Chorus

Set Fire To Flames

Written By: K. Johnson

Verse 1
Everything you do has already been done
I'll stand here and take it I won't run
Although I know I need to
My heart doesn't believe you
Everything you do is see through
Want you but I don't need you
You'll never have the upper hand
The one thing you don't understand is

Chorus
You can't set fire to flames
You can't pour the ocean on rain
You can't hurt me I'm already in pain
You can't drive me crazy I'm already insane
Repeat

Verse 2
Every word you say has already been said to me
Every person who said them is already dead to me
You'll be next if you don't stop it
Refuse to discuss one more topic
I know you only want to hurt me
Let down my guard so you can desert me
I'm buying any of the lies you're trying to sell
I'm jaded to all of this can't you tell

Chorus

Bridge
You can't put out fire with ice
Don't try to disarm me by being nice
You can't be different if you keep doing things the same
You can't hurt me by calling me out my name
You can't set fire to an already sparked flame

Verse 3
I want you gone from my life
I've already seen the light
There's nothing you can say to me
That will make you okay to me

Stupid

Written By: K. Johnson

Verse 1
Feel so foolish every time
Thoughts of how I loved you cross my mind
I put you before everything
I didn't mean more to you than anything
I came second to everything else in your life
Didn't matter to you that I was your wife

Chorus
This love is crazy
This love is stupid
This love is not for me
Fuck you cupid
This love is crazy
This love is stupid
This love is not for me
Fuck you cupid

Verse 2
Spent years making excuses for you
Telling people I still had uses for you
Made them think I had reasons to keep you around
When all you did was cheat and keep putting me down
Making you happy made me happiest
Now I have to find another outlet for my happiness

Verse 3
Love doesn't fade over night
So I still let you stay overnight
Even though I know it's not right
Vision always so clear in hind sight
I tried and tried to love you harder
Next time I'll love so much smarter
Chorus

My Love Will Follow You

Written By: K. Johnson

Verse 1
You can run away and never look back
It hurts to know that this is where we're at
You walking out on me without a care in the world
Do you remember when you were just a boy loving a girl
I wish I could take back anything I did to make you go
I'm smiling on the outside, but I hurt like you'd never know
We were the perfect the match, had the world at our heels
My heart won't ever let you leave no matter how bad it feels

Chorus
Please don't walk away from here with my heart on the sole of your shoe
You can run away from me, no matter where you go, my love will follow you
I'll be waiting for you to come back to me with shallow bated breaths
While I want to breathe again, without you I have nothing left
You took the wind out my sails
You took the joy out of all I do
Please don't walk away from here with my heart on the sole of your shoe
You can run away from me, no matter where you go, my love will follow you
Verse 2
Even though you're running you'll never escape me
Even though you said it, I know you don't hate me
Everything you do with her only makes you remember me
I'll always be more to you than just a distant memory
You can date 100 girls none will ever replace me
I'm be waiting for your return you'll never have to chase me
You can try to forget me in everything you do
It will never happen my love will be right there with you

Bridge
Every time you kiss her, you'll think of my lips
Every time you lay with her, you'll wish those were my hips
No matter how far you go, there's no escaping what's true
Every time you look in her eyes, my love will follow you
You feel hurt inside and your heart is hollow too
It's because you can't run, my love will follow you

Chorus

Naked

Written By: K. Johnson

Verse 1
Every time you look into my eyes
I'm always surprised
By how I feel stripped
Even those these jeans sit on my hips
It's like you see things that I didn't want anyone to know were there
It's like I'm all layered up but your eyes strip me bare

Chorus
I feel naked
Every time you look at me
I feel naked
Where my soul used to be
I feel naked
When you look deep enough to see more of me
I feel naked
Every time your eyes bare through the core of me

Verse 2
You see insecurity from the words coming out my mouth
You see my every move even when I take a different route
You see the truth when I try to tell a lie
It's like you see through me with your inner mind's eye
You look past anything superficially
You undress me with your mind not just physically

Chorus

Verse 3
You detect the frown in my eyes, when my lips smile
You see me in a way no one has in a long long while
You notice all the things I try to to hide
You see me way down deep inside
You've found the me I wouldn't want to show anyone else
You see the the real me and you allow me to be myself

When I'm With You

Written By: K. Johnson

When I'm With You

Verse 1
Didn't have to say a word
Your breath was all I heard
And your heart rhythmically beating in your chest
I breathed in syncopation when I laid my head there to rest
You've passed every test
When I'm with you I'm happiest

Chorus

When I'm with you
I'm greater
When I'm with you
Time stands still there's no later
When I'm with you
I find beauty in all you do
I love who I am
When I'm with you

Verse 2
I want to be wherever you are
At your or job or just in your car
When I'm with you I'm a better version of me
I become who I feel you need me to be
When I'm with you, I'm my best self
Couldn't imagine being with anyone else

Bridge
I try not to remember who I used to be
My whole life changed by you choosing me
Not using me
Not abusing me
When you're not very far, I miss you
And I wait for the moment when I'm with you

Verse 3
Never felt this way before I met you
Never experienced true love until i let you
In
That's when
The image in the mirror started smiling back at me
When I'm with you, there's no place I'd rather be

Not Sober

Written By: K. Johnson

Verse 1
Though times we see each other are far between and few
I'm usually still able to get along with you
And then the drinks start flowing
And I have a hard time knowing
What's real and what's not anymore
I can't deal with you like I could before.

Chorus
I can't be around you if I'm not sober
The more I drink. The more I think.
I can't be around you if I'm not sober
Drunk, I can't accept that it's all over.

Verse 2
When I'm sober the conversation is so cool
As soon as I start drinking I feel like love's fool
Can't remember why we're broken
It gets awkward where it was open
When I'm sober, you are my friend
When I'm not, I wonder why did we end

Chorus

Verse 3
Funny thing is, it's not just me
When you're drunk you badger me endlessly
Asking where did the love go
Why didn't I hug you
Say all thethings that we're not supposed to say
But we forget when the goose is grey

Bridge
I can't be be with you. If I'm not sober
I need all of this to remain over
I don't want drunken kisses
That we'll forget when we wake
I don't want the love we might make
To be a mistake.

You May

Written By: K. Johnson

You May
By: Keshawnta Johnson

Verse 1
I'll always want the best for you
Hate parts of you, but I truly love the rest of you
I understand now that we were disastrous
Couldn't do what the universe asked of us
Which was be together for all eternity
But The love I have for you still burns in me

Chorus
May you always be at home wherever you put your bags down
Whether it be in a big northern city or small southern town
I want you to always be comfortable in your own skin
May the next place you go not be someplace you've already been
Hope every thought you have keeps your mind at ease
May all you ever have be all you'll ever need

Verse 2
Couldn't wish you harm if I wanted to
All I truly want is whatever you want for you
For a while you were my biggest fan
If I could, wouldn't have asked for a different man
I was your world and you know you were mine as well
Still care for you even though you put me through hell
Chorus
Verse 3
Sometimes life is about getting to the good part
So I'm glad we each have a chance at a new start
Hopefully, we'll get it right this time
Maybe we won't fight this time
He's not you, but he's what I need in my life at present
She's not me but she loves you in a way I didn't
Bridge
You may not realize it
But one day
You'll be at peace
With all of this
You may not get it now
But one day you may

Nothing

Written By: Keshawnta Johnson

Nothing

Verse 1
Spent a lifetime running from nothing
While chasing him at the same time
Looking in dark empty corners
Loneliness became mine
I was determined to make nothing
Everything I needed in this life
But when you don't stand for something
Nothing cuts with a very sharp knife

Chorus
They told me nothing lasts forever
So nothing is who I searched for
They said nothing is worth the pain
So I wanted nothing forever more
They said nothing would hurt me
But that's not what I believed
They said nothing would leave me lonely
If I gave nothing that what I'd receive

Verse 2
My answer to every question
Was almost always nothing
What do you want
What do you need
Where will you go
Who will you be
I thought nothing would protect me
That way no one could reject me

Chorus
They told me nothing lasts forever
So nothing is who I searched for
They said nothing is worth the pain
So I wanted nothing forever more
They said nothing would hurt me
But that's not what I believed
They said nothing would leave me lonely
If I gave nothing that what I'd receive

Verse 3
I was so busy running after nothing
And hiding from nobody
That I forgot to do something
Meaningful for somebody
So I'm almost invisible to everybody
And I don't mean anything to anybody
I put my faith in something not there to believe in
Because I thought they were lying even when...

Chorus
They told me nothing lasts forever
So nothing is who I searched for
They said nothing is worth the pain
So I wanted nothing forever more
They said nothing would hurt me
But that's not what I believed
They said nothing would leave me lonely
If I gave nothing that what I'd receive
