Lyrics

Under my Skin

Written By: Maura Fogarty

i know the lines i know the ending
yeah i've seen this movie before
i'll keep on watching pay no attention
this time will be different for sure
i'll just go on pretending
'til i can't take anymore

why do i run to get you under my skin
you make me crumble
like dust in the wind
i know i'm lying whenever i say
never again

lying in bed i picture myself
in the hall by your bedroom door
wondering why i'm in this scene
that i've played so often before
i feel myself unravel
like a like a ball of dirty string

why do i run to get you under my skin
you make me crumble
like dust in the wind
i know i'm lying whenever i say
never again

what's it gonna take
to walk away from loving you
what is it about you
that makes me do the things i do

why do i run to get you under my skin
you make me crumble
like dust in the wind
i know i'm lying whenever i say
never again

Did You Think About Me

Written By: Fogarty/Bertsche/Tillis

cold concrete under my feet
walking up and down this lonely street
wondering did you think about me
when you said i do and you swore you would
did it really mean you'd be up to know good
when you thought about a ball and chain
did you think about me

when you kissed her lips did you taste my tears
when you looked in her eyes
did you see me here
did you feel my body when you held her tenderly
did you think about me

when the shine wore off you were good as gone
did you always know you'd do me wrong
did you think about you
did you think about me

when you kissed her lips did you taste my tears
when you looked in her eyes
did you see me here
did you feel my body when you held her tenderly
did you think about me

cold concret under me feet
walking up and down this lonely street

when the tables turned and she burned you down
your tender dreams hit the cold hard ground
did you learn your lesson when she brought you to your knees

when you kissed her lips did you taste my tears
when you looked in her eyes
did you see me here
did you feel my body when you held her tenderly
did you think about me

into the sun

Written By: Maura Fogarty/John Bertsche

i don't want to talk now
don't want to know
just want to walk as far as i can go
so don't try to follow
don't try to see not even my shadow

now that i know just who you are
you can't disguise your diamond-shaped heart
i don't know why i couldn't see
all of the signs screaming at me
it's time to go
it's time to run
and i will disappear into the sun

i don't mean to sound angry
the truth is i am
and if i see bitter well they go hand in hand
'cause there's nothing about you
thant i can believe you've prooved it to me

now that i know just who you are
you can't disguise your diamond-shaped heart
i don't know why i couldn't see
all of the signs screaming at me
it's time to go
it's time to run
and i will disappear into the sun

hey look all around you
'cause that's where i am was it part of you plan

now that i know just who you are
you can't disguise your diamond-shaped heart
i don't know why i couldn't see
all of the signs screaming at me
it's time to go
it's time to run
and i will disappear into the sun

I Don't Know Why

Written By: Maura Fogarty/Randy Scruggs

saw an old friend of ours just yesterday
said she'd heard we'd gone our seperate ways
said she was surprised to hear the news
then asked me for your number and if i had been talking to you

i don't know why i call out your name
i don't know why i still take the blame
'cause it was you who walked out the door
it was you who didn't want anymore
it seems i'm always thinkin' about you
i lie alone but i am never w/out you
can't help it i just love you
and i don't know why

lord know i could use some peace of mind
so take me where i know it's safe to hide
'cause no one else could take my breath away
so guide me where my heart will feel no pain

i don't know why i call out your name
i don't know why i still take the blame
'cause it was you who walked out the door
it was you who didn't want anymore
it seems i'm always thinkin' about you
i lie alone but i am never w/out you
can't help it i just love you
and i don't know why

who was right tell me where'd we go wrong does it matter
'cause the dreams we held in our hearts
slowly scattered
now there shattered

i don't know why i call out your name
i don't know why i still take the blame
'cause it was you who walked out the door
it was you who didn't want anymore
it seems i'm always thinkin' about you
i lie alone but i am never w/out you
can't help it i just love you
and i don't know why
