Lyrics

Let The Games Begin

Written By: Don Miggs

Let The Games Begin

I know my role
And I know where I stand
And I know who I am
I know you won’t understand

I’ve seen this one before
Everything starts out with feeling
Then we introduce the victim
And someone gets to be the villain

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Let the games begin

And that too familiar conversation
With that too familiar scene, yeah
Set to the greatest expectations
Someone always winds up getting cheated

I’m not going to lie
And I’m not going to bite
You may just want to hide your eyes
Cause this is going to be awhile

Well we’re all a little broken, baby
I’ve got cracks on up to here
But that don’t make me fragile
And that don’t make me fear

Yeah we’re all a little broken baby…
Let the games begin

Pretty

Written By: Don Miggs

Pretty

I remember what it felt like
When I thought that I had died
Before the curtain opened up
And swept away my alibis

I've a suspicious mind
Got treason on the brain
Give it patience, give it time
All enemies have names

If it's worth it, it won't be pretty
If it's broken, maybe we can fix it
And no one's ever called me pretty anyway

It takes a lot of steps, it takes a ton of faith
It takes a whole lot of something no one tells you how to make

All the things I had to drop
So I could pick this up
The weight could crush my suspect heart
If I had had enough

But nothing's really magic
Little secrets for every trick
I know the script it calls for tragic
But don't give up on this

If it's worth it, it won't be pretty
If it's broken, maybe we can fix it
And no one's ever called me pretty anyway

It takes a lot of steps, it takes a ton of faith
It takes a whole lot of something you can’t fake

I keep telling myself over and over and over and over
That nothings ever over until it's over, until it's over

One day it leads to another
One foot is followed by the other
And the next thing, the next thing you know is you're ok

It was worth it, who cares if it was pretty
So it's broken, maybe we won't fix it
No one needs to call me pretty anyway

Stars

Written By: Don Miggs

Stars

The stars aligned
Putting your heart next to mine
We beat in time
Putting your life on the line with me

A grand design
The earth will spin and the sun will shine
And you will find
The days they move in double time, you’ll see

I know there’s more to this than me
Some things you must believe to see

Wake up, the world is waiting
Make up the path you’re taking
Cause no one knows

Stand up for what you’re keeping
Stand out no time for sleeping
Up and go
Cause no one really knows a thing

The stars collide
Losing more than we’ll ever find
Your life won’t rhyme
The truest love steps out of time, sometimes

I know there’s more to this than me
Some things are better than you’ve dreamed

Wake up, the world is waiting
Make up the path you’re taking
Cause no one knows

Stand up for what you’re keeping
Stand out no time for sleeping
Up and go
Cause no one really knows a thing
