Lyrics

Lost Myself

Written By: Liz Barak

Lost myself

Friday night, I'm going out
To walk a little bit and think for a while
God, I feel so alone just now
Sitting in a coffee house and writing a story
About adventures from long ago
It occupies my mind not to think of you

And, they're playing in the radio some old song
That reads me memories from years ago
God how time flies away so quickly
I'm smiling paying and going home
Knowing there's a price to pay for being strong
Maybe one day I will find the balance

And everything is clear now, everything is clear now

Chorus:
I feel I’ve lost myself
To places I cant find no more and
All I have for now is just pieces
I feel I know my path
I’m getting closer everyday but
What about the rest of me that’s missing

Its Saturday night, the air is getting warm
From my windows there are voices of drums and joy
But I stay inside and listen to my heart beating
Cause here is for letting things be
Letting go and being free
It’s for the little things that get you to move on

And everything is clear now, everything is clear now

Chorus:
I feel I’ve lost myself
To places I cant find no more and
All I have for now is just pieces
I feel I know my path
I’m getting closer everyday but
What about the rest of me that’s missing

Now, the weekend's gone and all the grayness is covering- my broken heart, my loneliness, my job
Now I’m letting go, breathing deeply deeply inside
I am not afraid anymore
I am not afraid anymore

Chorus:
I feel I’ve lost myself
To places I cant find no more and
All I have for now is just pieces
I feel I know my path
I’m getting closer everyday but
What about the rest of me that’s missing
What about the rest of me that’s missing

Pretty Wrap

Written By: Liz Barak

Pretty Wrap

Annie’s mediocre but she’s the hottest thing in town
She never knew much but it never really seem to matter
Annie likes to talk, and everybody wants to hear
She doesn’t have a lot to say but nobody really seem to care
And she’s really pretty
Everybody wants to be like her
Just to bounce around all day, talking about make up and cloth

Its what it is
That’s all the rest of us
It’s what it is
We’re just a pretty wrap
And there’s a little piece of heaven
Lying inside the screen
If only I could also buy a little luck

Danni’s pretty boring, there isn’t much he likes to do
But every night he’s going out usually to a different party
Danni, he likes girl, but only for a night
Cause when the morning comes they just don’t mean a thing
And he seems really happy, he’s millions of friends
And if only he could he would be someone else

Its what it is
That’s all the rest of us
It’s what it is
We’re just a pretty wrap
And there’s a little piece of heaven
Lying inside the screen
If only I could also buy a little luck

And all the rest of us we’re just sitting in
Trying to find a way to pass the night
And all we need is just a little more of something

Its what it is
That’s all the rest of us
It’s what it is
We’re just a pretty wrap
And there’s a little piece of heaven
Lying inside the screen
If only I could also buy a little luck
