Lyrics

The Feeling Inside

Written By: Michael Mc Girr

Semi-conscious in a midnight bar,
I am wondering did I push too far,

And I don't care,
And I don't care,

No were to run too,
No were to hide,
The Feeling Inside,
The Feeling Inside. X 2

She is drunk and every night she says your are such a fool,
And everything you say to me breaks all the rules,

And I don't care,
And I don't care,

No were to run too,
No were to hide,
The Feeling Inside,
The Feeling Inside. X 2

Solo

No were to run too,
No were to hide,
The Feeling Inside,
The Feeling Inside. X 2

The feeling
The feeling
The feeling inside

Kick me Apart

Written By: Michael Mc Girr

Too many times I sheltered from your storm
Too many times I tried to get along
Dont give up
Dont give up

I know everything, every little dream,
Shattered in your storm our love in between

And dont u play with my heart
And dont u kick me apart

I know you thought I was your fool
Another day good times for you
But life comes round I breathe again
So you are you are the one to fall

I touch everything
I feel everything
I feel every kick again

I need you
I breathe u

Break me in 2

Written By: Michael Mc Girr

I always thought, always thought you’re beautiful in my heart,
I always felt, always felt time on our side,

And why do you,
And why do you,
Break me in 2

These days are long, every song going through my head,
All those promises, we were young, we fell instead

And why do you,
And why do you,
Break me in 2

I try x3

I always thought, always thought love was here for good,
I always knew, always knew, I played the fool,

And why do you,
And why do you,
Break me in 2

U break me in 2,
Its what u do,
U break me in 2,

The River of Life

Written By: Michael Mc Girr

A gentle breeze cross a summers days,
A gentle heart, it slipped away,
Nothing ever seems to be clear,
Cause nothing every is,
Pushing down on my aching bones,
Making me feel so alone,
Making me shout like it was,
Just making me, feel,

Oh, Oh, don’t leave me here,
Oh, Oh, The taste of fear,
Oh, Oh, What I need,
Take me to the river,
The river of Life

Everybody thinks their part of someone,
Everybody needs to be part of something,
It doesn’t really matter what it is,
It doesn’t matter
You got to push for what you are,
You got to push for everything you need,
You got to push for everything you feel.
You got to be what you are

Oh, Oh, don’t leave me here,
Oh, Oh, The taste of fear,
Oh, Oh, What I need,
Take me to the river,
The river of Life

Don’t lose yourself in your dreams,
Don’t lose your way; don’t loose your place,
Stay on the same page if it gets you there,
You got to be yourself,
You got to be yourself,
You got to be yourself,
Don’t loose yourself,

Love let me Down

Written By: Michael Mc Girr

No more crazy thoughts, no more crazy dreams,
I know darkness and what it means,

Do you feel alright?
Do you really care?
Do you see me now?

Just bring on the pain,

Love let me down
Love let me down
Love let me down
Don't play around

So there's nothing left of those days we use to play,
Just empty hearts there, always in the way,

Do you feel my tears?
Do you want to know?
Do you really feel?

Just bring on the pain,

Love let me down
Love let me down
Love let me down
Don't push me around

Every time you cried, every time I lied,
Every time you tried, every time I lied.

Hold me Close

Written By: Michael Mc Girr

Every time I hear your pretty mind,
Every time I see your crazy walk,
I know it’s been, it’s been a while,
All I want is a simple smile,

And don’t you want me here,
And don’t you want me near,
I need you now,
Just hold me close

I know what you want to say to me,
I know what that look means,
Everything I ever did to you,
Every moment brought back to life,
Every kiss thrown back at me,
What I want is you,

And don’t you want me here,
And don’t you want me near,
I need you now,
Just hold me close

U seem to think my heart is on the blink,
U seem to want anything you can,
Every time in every line, you write,
The bitter twist, a kiss,

And don’t you need me here,
And don’t you need me near,
I need your touch,

And don’t you want me here,
And don’t you want me near,
I need you now,
Just hold me close

The Hurt in U

Written By: Michael Mc Girr

Don't you really feel, the way I feel, feel about you,
Don't you really care, the way I care, I care for you,

It doesn't matter.
It doesn't matter,

When Love shines through,
It stops the Hurt in U.

And I know, everyday, what it feels to walk away,
And I know, what is real, the touch of your hand, the hurt that you feel.

It doesn't matter.
It doesn't matter,

When Love shines through,
It stops the Hurt in U.

Instrumental

It doesn't matter.
It doesn't matter,

When Love shines through,
It stops the Hurt in U

End

Need Your Love

Written By: Michael Mc Girr

I saw you there for years, you sat and said nothing
I caught your smile, you caught my heart then you tried to hide.

And I need your love
And I need your love,
Tonight.

You took me upstairs and told me to lie on your bed
I am really shaking I really need your touch so much
The way you kiss me, they way you tell me, It feels just right
Just lie beside me and be so understood tonight

And I need your love
And I need your love,
Tonight.

I love your smile, the crazy things you do for me
You make me feel so damn good and free.

And I need your love
And I need your love,

And I need your love
And I need your love,
Everynight.
