PRETEND
© Lyrics by Rizo Balic

[VERSE ONE]
I PRETEND I'M FINE,
AND I DON'T CARE,
I’M ON MY OWN AGAIN,
AS MANY TIMES BEFORE,
I PRETEND I’M SO HAPPY,
WHEN MY HEART IS BROKEN.

VERSE [TWO]
I PRETEND I’M IN CONTROL,
NOTHING GET ME DOWN,
I NEVER LOOSE MY COOL,
I PRETEND I’LL BE OKAY,
WHEN MY LIFE IS TORN APART,
AND THERE’S NO HOPE.

BRIDGE:
I PRETEND I CAN COPE,
WITH ALL LIFE DEMANDS,

CHORUS:
I TAKE ALL IN MY STRIDE,
AND NOTHING CAN UPSET ME,
I PRETEND I’M HAPPY,
EVEN THEN WHEN I KNOW,
I’M FACING LONLINESS.

VERSE [THREE]
I PRETEND ALL IT‘S FINE,
WHEN MY LIFE IS IN TURMOIL,
AND I CAN‘T STOP THE ROT,
I PRETEND I DON‘T CARE,
WHEN I KNOW LIFE’S GOING,
IN THE WRONG DIRECTION.

VERSE [FOUR]
I PRETEND I’M WINNING,
AND LIFE CAN’T GET ANY BETTER,
EVEN WHEN I KNOW,
THE TRUTH IT‘S DIFFERENT,
I PRETEND I’M JUST FINE,
AND NOTHING CAN‘T TOUCH ME.

SONG FOR YOU

Written By: RIZO BALIC

SONG FOR YOU
© Lyrics by Rizo Balic

VERSE [ONE]
I WROTE THIS SONG,
TO REMIND ME OF YOU,
OF THE TIME WE SPEND TOGETHER,
LAUGHTING AND SHARING EVERYTHING,
I WANT THIS SONG TO REMIND YOU ON HAPPY DAYS.


VERSE [TWO]
I WROTE THIS SONG,
ESPICIALLY FOR YOU AS MY THANKS,
FOR MAKING ME SMILE AGAIN,
AND BEING THERE FOR ME,
WHEN I LOST FAITH IN LOVE,
AND DIDN’T WANT TO LIVE.

BRIDGE:
IN EVERY WORDS THERE’S A CLUE,

CHORUS:
HOW I FEEL ABOUT YOU,
SINCE FIRST TIME I SAW YOU,
I KNEW YOU’RE THE ONE,
I WANT TO SHARE LIFE WITH.

VERSE [THREE]
WHEN YOU LISTEN THE SONG,
FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME,
MAYBE YOU WANT TAKE ANY NOTICE,
THOUGH WE’RE HAPPY TOGETHER,
I WONDER ONE DAY IF YOU LOVE GONE,
HOW YOU’RE GOING TO FEEL THEN.

VERSE [FOUR]
I WANT THIS SONG
TO REMIND ME OF YOU,
I’LL ALWAYS LOVE YOU,
I HOPE YOU’LL STAY FOREVER WITH ME,
IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND,
I WANT THIS SONG,
ALWAYS TO REMIND YOU ON ME.

LEAVING

Written By: RIZO BALIC

LEAVING
© Lyrics by Rizo Balic

VERSE [ONE]
HOPING TO FIND SOME PEACE,
LEAVING THE OLD LIFE BEHIND,
TIRED OF ENDLESS STRUGGLES,
I’M GOING TO MAKE A FRESH START,
FARAWAY FROM ALL THE PEOPLE,
WHO MADE MY LIFE MISERABLE.

VERSE [TWO]
I’M LEAVING EVERYTHING,
ONLY TAKING A FEW BELONGINGS,
PACKED IN A SMALL SUITCASE,
AND A FEW PHOTOS TO REMIND ME,
ON THE HAPPY LIFE,
THAT ONCE I’VE ENJOYED.

BRIDGE:
I’M LEVING WITH BROKEN HEART,
EVERYTHING I’VE TRIED FAILED,

CHORUS:
I GAVE ALL MY DESIRES,
TO FIND EVERLASTING HAPPINESS,
IT WASN’T GOOD ENOUGH,
I HEAD HELD HIGH KNOWING,
AT LEAST I’VE TRIED.

VERSE [THREE]
I’M HIDING ALL MY SORROWS,
PRETENDING EVERYTHING IT’S FINE,
I’M NOT HURT THAT MUCH,
IT BECAME EVERYDA’S ROUTINE,
I KNOW IT’LL BE DIFFERENT,
NOTHING LAST FOREVER.

VERSE [FOUR]
I’M TAKING ALL MY DREAMS,
WITH ME IN MY NEW LIFE,
I’VE TO TRY EVERYTHING,
TO REACH ALL MY GOALS,
WHAT I’D IN MY MIND,
SINCE I WAS A CHILD.
