Lyrics

Fanzini

Written By: Luna Matto

Maybe I'll come back around
My legs are weak
I know what you found
You know I'm here because I'm all alone
You know I need your love to heal my soul

Last nite I dreamt I saw you here
Your face was red hot and full of tears
I walked away
I walked away
I walked away
It breaks my heart to ever think I'd act that way

Just Wanna Try

Written By: Luna Matto

Verse 1
Every time you close the door
I am just waiting here
I am just waiting here

I spend my days just pacing floors
I am just waiting here
I am just waiting here

And at the end of the day I give up
I have to listen
I hear you breathing

And I am moved each time I try
Cos you left me waiting here
I am just waiting here

Chorus
Honest you do everything right
I just wanna try
I just wanna try
I just wanna try

Every day I have to wait
wait for the rain
to wash you ashore
Because I need you more
I need you more

Honest you do everything right
I just wanna try
I just wanna try
I just wanna try

Bridge:
No way out
I had no way out
No way out

Verse 2
Every day I close my eyes
I am just waiting here
I am just waiting here

I take a trip inside my mind
I am still waiting here
I am still waiting here

Chorus

D Street

Written By: Luna Matto

Didn't I show my worst?
Remember when I banged upon the door
Trapped outside
When you finally opened up the door
I couldn't stand up on my own

I tell you I'm sorry - I'm sorry

You took me by the hand and laid me down
Made me convinced
And then I slept

I tell you I'm sorry - I'm sorry
I really want you - I want you
Tell me you love me - you love me
I'm waiting for you - I'm waiting
