Lyrics

My Kind of City

Written By: Megan Anderson

Verse 1
Over two million people and
none of them the same
you can go anywhere
they'll always know the name
Media and transportation
tourism and education
CN tower, Rogers center
ACC and it gets better

Verse 2
Warm humid summers
and cold snowy winters
a patriotic city
filled with freedom fighters
wonderland, toronto zoo
ontario place, carabana too
harbourfront, wintercity
all of it is just so pretty

Verse 3
Its no mistake
she's been around 1834
safe and clean and friendly
for the world to explore
people all around the globe
they come and call toronto home
languages of every kind
and many faiths all intertwined

Bridge
It's the raptors its the blue jays
its the hockey hall of fame
its marilyn bell and the maple leafs
its simply just the name

a hundred and seventy-five and young
you better believe she's just begun
torontos where you want to be
sharing in the history

its my kind of city (x3)

Barren

Written By: Megan Anderson

Verse 1
There’s this place that I go, in a manner of speaking
This thought in my head that keeps me believing
There’s hope in the end, but it’s not always easy to go…

There’s this guy that I know, in every way
And when he takes my hand, I go back to that place
I wish he’d understand, but it’s not always easy to show…
But here I go…

Chorus
I smile for you, try for you, every day’s all for you
Laugh for you, work for you, anything you want me to
I can be, what you need, babe if you let me inside
Inside of your heart…
I’ll be your fresh start

Verse 2
So this girl that you know, not to compare
But when you need her most, she’s not always there
But like Casper the ghost, you still see the good in her soul…

What I love about you, is killing me inside
And you don’t know the truth, but I’m tired of this lie
And forgetting our youth, I think that it’s time I unfold…
So you’re told…

Chorus

Verse 3
As you take it all in, you’re staring in shock
And like after I’ve sinned, I just want to block out
The memory within, but I really don’t know what to do…

Then to my surprise, you’re smiling whole heartily
Look in my eyes, and grabbing my hands whisper
No more lies, followed by I love you…
Then you … say

Chorus

First Forever

Written By: Megan Anderson


Verse 1
Started in the summer typical romance scene
You were Mister Shy I was Miss Sweet Sixteen
Lying in the grass looking up at the stars
I was waiting for you to hold me in your arms but

Verse 2
Didn’t know your last name where you lived
But you looked so cute such a hard decision
Heart was beating faster, can’t think straight
Then you turn to me and say I just can’t wait for

Chorus
Our first hug our first kiss
The first time ill have to miss you
Our first dance first real fight
First phone call that lasts all night and

First love you can’t stand you
First time our parents say it’s too soon
First lies first cries
First forever

Verse 3
Now again its summer how the time goes so fast
Looking through the blissful memories of our past
Lying on the floor by the fire place
Sleeping all night in your warm embrace but

Bridge
Accidents will happen and we don’t know why
I can’t move on but I’ll have to try
Everything we had just gone in a flash
And I’d give anything just to have you back my

Chorus
My first hug my first kiss
Oh God how I’m going to miss you
My first dance my first fight
No one to hold me through the night and

I love you I need you
And you left me way too soon and
Ill cry … goodbye… First forever

Nothing to Lose

Written By: Megan Anderson

VERSE 1
There are moments I remember
And moments I forget
And there are moments I am proud of
And moments I regret

And there are times I feel like crying
And times that I may smile
There are times where I may laugh out loud
Or be bittersweet a while

CHORUS
But with a thousand tears fallen and one broken smile
I’ll make you believe I’m okay
Because nothing feels better than being together
In our miserable-what-the-hell way

So let them have their happy endings
We’ll laugh because we know best
There’s something to lose when you’re really happy
And nothing when you’re depressed

VERSE 2

There are moments I’m relaxing
And moments I am stressed
And there are moments that I give up
But at least I tried my best

And there are times I need my silence
And times my music soars
There are times where you may break my heart
And times that I break yours

CHORUS
But with a thousand tears fallen and one broken smile
I’ll make you believe I’m okay
Because nothing feels better than being together
In our miserable-what-the-hell way

So let them have their happy endings
We’ll laugh because we know best
There’s something to lose when you’re really happy
And nothing when you’re depressed

Catch the Wind

Written By: Megan Anderson


VERSE 1
Sitting here and softly crying…
Something’s telling me he’s lying…
Nothing’s gonna take the pain away…

Never will I trust another…
Every boy, even my brothers…
Leave me here to sit alone each day…

And as I sit I think inside and wonder…
What’s wrong with me but never could I see…

CHORUS
And as my thoughts go flying by…
My heart starts to mend a bit inside…
And I know I gotta catch the wind I feel…

It’s the wind that makes me smile…
Changes my whole life for a while…
And my heart repairs itself and takes the wheel…

VERSE 2
Wipe my face and fix my makeup…
Tell myself it’s just a breakup…
Grab my favorite snack and catch a show…

Call up all the girls I know and…
Walk together while we all hold hands…
And that’s when we all know were not alone…

And as we sit we think inside and wonder…
What’s wrong with us but never could we see…

CHORUS

VERSE 3
And now I sit here softly smiling…
Picking up the phone and dialing…
People anyone except the boys…

The boys all think their sweet and handsome…
But we all know that they’re just problems…
So I’ll just hang with girls and drown in joy…

And as I sit I think inside and wonder…
What’s wrong with me but never could I see…

Catch the wind.

Then Yell

Written By: Megan Anderson

Verse 1

I’ve heard it all before
Why does it sound so different this time?
The sounds of screams and tears
Feelings being lost in time

My family falls apart
And I have no friends to save me
Now I’ve got no one but myself
But damn it I know that’s all I need

Chorus

So…I’ll…pick myself up off the ground
Turn this world of mine around
And ill show them who’s the boss of me

Cuz’ …when…You are left there all alone
You got to learn to make it on your own
And ill clean up leaving no debris

Verse 2

So go and talk your shit
Start all the rumors that you want to
Pretty soon they’ll know the truth
They’re gonna see the real you

You’ve taken everything from me
I’ll get it back and that’s a promise
The tables turning back on you
Ya get a load of this

Chorus

Where i'm supposed to be

Written By: Megan Anderson

Verse 1
Yeah I’ve heard people say
There’s a time and a place for everything
And I don’t know if it’s true
But I’m lying here with you
And I’m thinking

Chorus
This is where I’m supposed to be
You are who I’m supposed to see
My hand in yours it fits so right
And I want you to stay the night, because

This is how I’m supposed to feel
My heart is telling me this is real
I don’t want you to leave
This is where I’m supposed to be

Verse 2
Yeah I’ve seen all the films
Heard all the songs, read all the stories too
Always thought it make-believe
Never happening to me

Bridge
But then you came along
Made me write this song
I can barely breathe
Dreaming “you and me”
And I’m thinking

Chorus
This is where I’m supposed to be
You are who I’m supposed to see
My hand in yours it fits so right
And I want you to stay the night, because

This is how I’m supposed to feel
My heart is telling me this is real
I don’t want you to leave
This is where I’m supposed to be

I hope she's worth it

Written By: Megan Anderson

“Babe I don’t see her and I don’t miss her
You’re all I need
It’s you and me babe together forever
Just look at me”

As I look at him I see my reflection
Tears in my eyes
And as I take his hand I whisper to him
I don’t need your lies

Chorus

But I hope that she’s worth all our efforts
And the tears that I cried over you
And I hope that she’s worth all the lies u made up
Each time was something new

And I hope that she makes you happy
Screw that I wish u misery
Cuz’ I hope she’s a liar and treats you like dirt
Like how you treated me

Verse 2
“You act so innocent like you never lied before
You’ve messed up too
But I still loved you and I forgave you
This is nothing new”

I look at him again and see my reflection
A smile on my face
You were my mistake and that’s where I messed up
In the first place

Chorus

But I hope that she’s worth all my efforts
And the tears that I cried over you
And I hope that she’s worth all the lies u made up
Each time was something new

And I hope that she makes you happy
Screw that I wish u misery
Cuz I hope she’s a liar and treats you like shit
Like how you were to me

Time is Disaster

Written By: Megan Anderson

Verse 1
Sittin’ in my basement thinkin’
My parents are upstairs drinkin’
I’m sittin’ and wonderin’ how to escape this world

My friends I mean acquaintances are
Stuck on my like a hundred leaches
And I’m always feeling like my life’s being hurled

Chorus
So I tried
To make the time go faster
It was a huge disaster
And people just don’t understand

And now
I can’t go back cause’ blood stains clothes
And my breathing gage is starting to close
And the scars will always be there by my hand

Verse 2
Go upstairs to make my point and
My mom’s throat is clamped with his hand
He’s got no control of what he’s doing

Freaks me out I wanna scream but
Last time this was just a dream so
I go back down to the place I lose myself

Chorus
So I tried
To make the time go faster
It was a huge disaster
And people just don’t understand

And now
I can’t go back cause’ blood stains clothes
And my breathing gage is starting to close
And the scars will always be there by my hand

Cinderella No More

Written By: Megan Anderson

“You’re my favourite girl in the whole wide world”
I heard him say to me
And we made jokes and as he spoke
I sat upon his knee

“One day you will take this throne”
I didn’t understand
He talked of Kings and Princes
And I saw as he took my hand

I am Daddy’s little princess
And he’s looking for a Queen
And they all treat me terribly
But Daddy’s never seen

And I try my best to smile
Cuz’ he says he loves me most
To him I’m Queen of his whole World
But to them, I’m Cinderella the ghost

I saw him bring her home one day and I
Couldn’t help but frown
I tried to picture Daddy as he’s
Giving her my crown

She looked at me and I could feel
A change inside my heart
Could it be he found the Queen of Queens?
Could this be our fresh start?

I am Daddy’s little princess
And he’s looking for a Queen
And none of them compare to her
The best I’ve ever seen

And if it means I have to share the crown
Well for her it’s not a chore
Cuz I’m still Queen of his whole world
And to her, I’m Cinderella no more.

Now I’m grown and I see the throne
She’s handled it so strong
And the crown I heartily gave to her
She’s shared it all along

I can’t imagine life without her
Our family wouldn’t be the same
So cheers to the King and Queen
To whom it’s an honor to share my name
