Lyrics

Everything That Was Said

Written By: Jessica Schettler

Do you remember those nights?
I remember them all of the time,
The way that she shines,
the way the moonlight hits her eyes.

Everything that was said,
not a moment to regret,
and maybe the years
will fade away the tears.

Come, see me in the morning,
her dress hits the floor
and I'm going,
Don't go away, too much time here
is wasted away

Everything that was said,
not a moment to regret,
and maybe the years
will fade away the tears.

She leaves the door open,
smiles as she's walking down the stairs,
and I wonder why she's been
Silent all these years.

Everything that was said,
not a moment to regret,
and maybe the years
will fade away the tears.

Design My Spine

Written By: Jessica Schettler

And I wrote this song to forget about you,
Listen, I'm not the one who lied, to you.
So from here and out, I know that we're done,
So go on, be strong, I dare you to belong.

And all the secrets that you have hidden,
Just give them up, I swear that I'll be okay. (I'll be okay, okay).

You're turning me sideways with these lies and these headgames,
you're so inconsiderate. (hush now).

CHORUS

I know that your somewhere inbetween,
but how can you except me to believe.
In dirty streets, the city ilghts
and all those other nights.
(all those nights far above the ground).

VERSE

When all that you did was break my spine,
when your the best at the right kind of lies.

VERSE

stop now, please don't say the rest,
unless you're gong to undress,
please just forget.

CHORUS

how can you exoect me to believe,
in dirty streets and city lights
and other nights, other nights, far above the ground.

BRIDGE

you were so desperate, i wanted to save you,
but i got so lost.

CHORUS

but i knew that you were somewhere inbetween,
but how could you expect me to believe.
In dirty streets, the city lights,
and other nights.
And other nights far above the ground.
