Lyrics

Need You

Written By: Meg Welch

Verse 1:
The streets are quiet for a Saturday night
And the coastline is barely in view
As the waves crash they break through the silence
And I hear you…in the back of my mind

Chorus:
Don’t wanna be alone tonight
Lost in these lonely hills of limelight.
Don’t listen to the words I say
I can’t watch you walk away…I need you

Verse 2:
Its ironic…I never wanted you to stay
But in this dry rain my soul thirsts
The stars are over-shadowed by the city of lights
But I see you…in my reflection

Chorus:

Bridge:
And in this moment of solitude
A stranger’s touch is no substitute
I pray that I make it back to you
Cause I can’t sleep…in these city lights

Outro Chorus:
Don’t wanna be alone tonight
Lost in these lonely hills of limelight
I need you…I need you…I need you

Simple Song

Written By: Meg Welch

Verse1:
There’s a simple song I wrote for you
It talks about the times when you’re away and I’m blue
In my heart I know that you’ll be true,
But I can’t help but wonder why this is what we have to do
Some days I feel, I wanna give up, when will this stop? I must admit I need a mental breakthrough
Until your voice captivates me

Chorus:
I’ll wait for you
I’ll be here true
‘Til suddenly you are back by me
A missing piece
I’m not complete
‘Til suddenly you are back by me

Verse 2:
How did we wander off to where we are?
I guess the distance in my heart matches the miles we’re apart
I always knew that this would be so hard
It makes me stop and wonder how our love even made it this far
Its your smile I miss, I long for your kiss, I can’t dismiss, sometimes I think that I won’t find my way through
Until your voice captivates me

Chorus:

Bridge:
I’m left with this simple song for you
I’ve been waiting patiently confused
This is my simple song for you

Chorus:

Unspoken

Written By: Meg Welch

Verse 1:
I’ve never been to be selfish
Always the one to take control
Burdened by your battle…Searching for a cure
From this desperate situation starring back at me in my reflection
As a portrait of perfection fades away

Chorus:
I don’t wanna be my own worse enemy
I don’t wanna follow down the tracks you laid me
Cause I’ve seen the damage done
Wanna be the one to design my destiny
Surrender my soul and give all of my energy
Finally be the one to break free

Verse 2:
Never asked for more than expected
When I needed your strength…you failed me
Your apologies accepted, but wounds are left unhealed
From this hopeless situation…searching for a meaning and direction
As a portrait of perfection fades away

Chorus:

Bridge:
There’s still words unspoken
From this battle you fought that will never be done
I’m breakin’ down these walls
Watchin’ as they fall

Chorus:
