Am I Me

Written By: Ryan Roberts

Am I Me
Artist: Ryan Roberts

As I walk right through this life of mine,
There’s a whole lot of questions on my mind
About the things I’ve done
And the places I’ve been before.
I will not say that I’m not proud,
but there are things I’ve done
That stand out too loud,
And if I could, I’d throw them right out the door.

I look at him and then I look at me
And I’m asking me “Am I really me?”
But to tell the truth, I just can’t really tell.
I remember when I was happy last,
It was some time back, a few years past.
Now I’m hanging on by a flame I found in hell,
I’m lost again

I look at him and then I look at me
And I’m asking me “Am I really me?”
But to tell the truth, I just can’t really tell.
I remember when I was happy last,
It was some time back, a few years past.
Now I’m hanging on by a flame I found in hell,
I’m lost again

I look at my father and then I look at me
And I’m asking me “Am I really me?”
But to tell the truth, I just can’t really tell.
I remember when I was happy last,
It was some time back, a few years past.
Now I’m hanging on by a flame I found in hell,
I’m lost again.

In the Moment

Written By: Ryan Roberts

In the Moment
Artist: Ryan Roberts

Well hold on babe, I’ve come a long, long ways
To see your body and to kiss your face.
Well I don’t care where I’ll be tomorrow
As long as I can be with you today.

Living in the moment of my life,
Holding on to every single dream.
Living in the moment of right now
Letting go of every little thing.

Well hold on babe, I’ve come a long, long ways
To touch your body and to hold you tight.
I don’t care where I’ll lay tomorrow
As long as I can lay with you tonight.

Living in the moment of my life,
Holding on to every single dream.
Living in the moment of right now
Letting go of every little thing.

A Little Afraid

Written By: Ryan Roberts

A Little Afraid
Artist: Ryan Roberts

Sitting here on the floor
Thoughts running wild across my heart
Then they disappear, just like before.
Leave me by myself, drunk, falling apart.

I’m a little bit angry at myself
The hurt hurts so bad. God it burns like hell.
I’m falling apart, I might as well.
Now I’m a whole lot hurt,
‘Cause she is a little afraid.

I guess I fell asleep and it felt so good,
Staring at her face smiling back at me
Now it’s the death of me, it ended too soon.
I leap on my legs, then I crash to my knees.

I’m a little bit angry at myself
The hurt hurts so bad. God it burns like hell.
I’m falling apart, I might as well.
Now I’m a whole lot hurt,
‘Cause she is a little afraid.

One Lonely Shaddow

Written By: Ryan David Roberts

It's Friday Night and I'm sittin' here at home.
For some reason I'm sittin' here all alone.
Looking at your picture but I won't give you a call,
I'll just lay here starring at that lonely shaddow on my wall.

College coffee shops and south Texas dancing halls.
Sometimes I wonder, "is it really worth it all?"
Chasing these beautiful Texas Dixie queens,
Sometimes I wonder, "is there any one needin me?"

Tonight there's a lonely shaddow on my wall. I think he's trying to talk to me. Tonight there's a lonely shaddow on my wall. A stranger starring back at me!

Willie sang about a broken hearted fool.
I guess that's why I'm sittn' here on this stool.
Instead of taking you out on that dancin floor
I'm sure I could have you coming back for more
But I head on home to that long and lonsome hall
That leads to my bed where there's a lonely shaddow on my wall

Repeat chorous:

you might say that I've wasted time, well maybe I have; but it's too late now I'll just sit here.

Yeah tonight there's one lonely shaddow on my wall. And I think he's trying to talk to me. Tonight there's one lonely shaddow on my wall. A stranger starring back at me. Oh he's crying! Yeah he's crying back at me!

For Real

Written By: Ryan David Roberts

What am I doing here in New Orleans?
What am I doing here? I can't stand still.
What am I doing here inside this dream?
When I know I could kiss your face for real!

What if I said that you're the one?
What If I said that I love you,
For real?

What am I doing here beside myself?
What am I doing here? You need my touch.
What am I doing here up on this shelf?
When I know I need you just as much!

Repeat chorus:

Make Believe

Written By: Ryan David Roberts

There's a full moon out, I think I'll just keep walking
Even though you're gone, I can't help but hear you talking
You were here with me, yesterday, so it seems
But I know the truth, I only see you in my dreams

I'm glad you stopped by, so you could see the smiling faces on my kids. I know you're not here, but I still like to pretend.

I know you're not here, but I still like to pretend
Maybe tonight we'll do, the same thing we did last weekend
Just sit outside, and share what's on our minds
Maybe laugh alot, you know, we did that all the time

I'm glad you stopped by, so I could hear you laugh out loud once again. I know you're not here, but I love to Pretend!
