Lyrics

Kick Williams - Let It Go

Written By: Edward Wyner

let it go / 3:33 - wyner(ascap)

so here i am/packing my things again/tattered sweater, it could have been better for me/come down now/is there any way to make things feel the same/or is it just gone/i should've just let it go, but/i know that it'll never be the same again/but i, i'll be just fine, alright, alright/heavy steps/from a heavy heart/weighed down by the things/that tore us apart/so hold me down/down on my knees/im begging to ask you/begging you please/how i wish you were blind/so you could not see/now that there is nothing left for me/i don't know why you left the keys by the door/you left me waiting, waiting for something, something more...

Kick Williams - Always Fade Away

Written By: Edward H Wyner

Always Fade Away - Wyner (ASCAP)

You are everything to be
you are the markings on my sleeve
And all of this, all of this, don’t let me fall
And all of this, all of this, my love, is yours

I left that Sunday in the rain
Wet shoes, wet souls, and hungry for your name
And we are but small enough to fade away
And we are always waiting for the day

So forget about it, forget about the past
the things that make you mad
and let it fade away
you just build it up to let it fall apart
and the pieces of your heart
will always fade away

All we are is lost in us
And all we had is gone
Let go (of) regrets, our hearts have bled
Our hearts have bled…

So forget about it, forget about the past
the things that make you mad
and let it fade away
you just build it up to let it fall apart
and the pieces of your heart
will always fade away

Kick Williams - For The Best

Written By: Edward H Wyner

for the best/5:05 - wyner (ASCAP)

gotta ask myself, is it for the best/or is it for the rest to find out the hard way?/my head doesn't seem to care/if my heart is beating, or if it's even there at all/is there anyone there at all?/because most of us will never get out/there's too much confusion and doubt/and you can say you're out of line, but its easier to say its alright/i always thought to burn this place and leave it in a wake of screaming ash/but now i find i'm lost/and rewind all the pages torn/you can say you're out of line, but its easier to say its alright/and you can say you're out of time, but its easier to tell me, easier to say goodbye...
