Lyrics

Emotional Abbreviation

Written By: Laura Johnson

Our silent communication takes me where I want to be
But all of your motivation I wonder if it's where it should be

So I'll just stay and wait while you're gone
Wait for the day that you come home
And I'll wonder is it really real this time
And I'll wonder if you won't step out of line

Cause I don't know the way the world is
I wonder if this is how it is
And I don't know the way that love works
I wonder what it is that makes me stay

Emotional abbreviation isn't good enough for me
And romantic procrastination isn't the way that it should be

So I'll just stay and wait while you're gone
Wait for the day that you come home
And I'll wonder is it really real this time
And I'll wonder if you won't step out of line

So is it love or is it foolishness or do I even want to know
And should I give away my heart again or should I
Even let it show that I really care

Reality or is it fiction I guess both have their perks
But my heart is it worth risking
It is if we could get this thing to work

So I'll just stay and wait while you're gone
Wait for the day that you come home
And I'll wonder is it really real this time
And I'll wonder if you won't step out of line

Cause I don't know the way the world is
I wonder if this is how it is
And I don't know the way that love works
I wonder what it is that makes me stay

Our silent communication takes me where I want to be
But all of your motivation I wonder if it's really where it should be

Echoes

Written By: Laura Johnson

I remember one time that you told me that you cared
And I remember one time when you just weren't there
And I remember how I cried the day I knew you were gone
And the words you said to me carry on

And the sound of your voice echoes on and on and on and on
I can see the words on paper but I cannot hear the song
And I remember all the times that it was just you and me
And the words you said are still echoing

The song that was playing I remember all the words
You said you'd be back but I was not assured
I found myself somewhere I didn't know where I was
I'd been hoping you would stay
Just because

And the sound of your voice follows me wherever I go
And the way you made me feel
I can't let that go

And the sound of your voice echoes on and on and on and on
I can see the words on paper but I cannot hear the song
I remember all the times that it was just you and me
And the words you said are still echoing

Who I Am

Written By: Laura Johnson

I lost myself in a world of trouble
I wandered too far from home
And I forgot who I used to be
I need my dreams

So this is who I am
Nice to meet you I've been searching for you
I was fading fast
Maybe I was already gone
Finally you let me fall
But I did not fall alone
You let me go and I showed you I could walk all on my own

I had a dream that I was alone
Then I saw you standing there
And I have the memories but not the time
I need time

So this is who I am
Nice to meet you I've been searching for you
I was fading fast
Maybe I was already gone
Finally you let me fall
But I did not fall alone
You let me go and I showed you I could walk all on my own

Time Makes You Numb

Written By: Laura Johnson

I've been doing a lot of thinking
About the way you treated me
In a way I know I should just let go
But I know you're all I need
They say that time will heal and time will make you strong
But I've been giving it time and I think that they're wrong

Because time won't make you free
No time makes you numb
And the way I feel for you will never be done
Because all I think of is you
And I wanted to say that I love you
I love you

Everyone says that I should move on
And the distance between us is much too long
But at night you always visit my dreams
And I can't move on and I think everyone's wrong

Because time won't make you free
No time makes you numb
And the way I feel for you will never be done
Because all I think of is you
And I wanted to say that I love you
I love you

I love you
