Prince Valium

Written By: Sammy Nickell

Prince Valium Lyrics and Music by Sammy Nickell
It’s all for my lung
Her scent is in my head
And I am feeling like Prince Valium
It’s just like yesterday again

You rationalize it all the time
Comparing a lemon to a lime
And all the while, you’re still misunderstood
If they could see inside they’d find

You’re all alone
Sit down upon your bed
You’re so habitual but this river never flowed so easy
She was too wasted, now you’re on the floor again, celebrating into the unknown
Nothing for you shown

And when it’s all said and done
Just make sure you had your fun
And when you wake up, all your time has slipped away from you
You’ll look to me but I’ll be gone (I will be gone)

You’re all alone
Sit down upon your bed
You’re so habitual but this river never flowed so easy
She was too wasted, now you’re on the floor again, accelerating into the unknown
Nothing for you shown

You rationalize it all the time
Comparing a lemon to a lime
And all the while, you’re still misunderstood
If they could see inside they’d find

You’re all alone
Sit down upon your bed
You’re so habitual but this river never flowed so easy
She was too wasted, now you’re on the floor again, celebrating into the unknown
Nothing for you shown

Yeah, I am Prince Valium
Yeah hey! Yeah, I am Prince Valium

It's A Shame

Written By: Sammy Nickell

It’s A Shame Music and Lyrics by Sammy Nickell

It gets hard to give
When someone’s always taking from you
Maybe I should take
But that would just make me a taker too

I’ll just stay away
I’ll catch up with you on a better day
Ah, but then again
Maybe we’re just wasting time away
Ahh, ahh, it’s a shame

Someone said to me
All you do in life is all you’ll be
When I’m dead and gone
I hope you smile when you remember me

I done all I can
To make you realize that I’m the man
You just turn away
You say always I sabotage the plan
Ahhh, ahh it’s a shame

It’s a shame, oh
It’s a shame, oh

Someone said to me
All you do in life is all you’ll be
When I’m dead and gone
I hope you smile when you remember me

Oh, it’s a shame
Ahh, it’s a shame

It’s a shame, oh

Someone said to me
All you do in life is all you’ll be
When I’m dead and gone
I hope you smile when you remember me

It’s a shame
Oh, it’s a shame

Weight of the World

Written By: Sammy Nickell

Weight of the World Music and Lyrics by Sammy Nickell

Upon my shoulders is the weight of the world
Can I support it? Well I’ll give it a whirl
What makes a man love the heart of a girl?
You know, I just don’t know

Maybe one day when day when I have all the clues
I’ll write a book and give you facts you can use, yeah

But until then I’ll just be singing the blues
You know I know it’s true, yeah

The weight of the world

I’m getting older, better map out a plan
A little closer to who I really am
What makes a girl love the heart of a man?
You know, I just don’t know

Maybe one day when day when I have all the clues
I’ll write a book and give you facts you can use, yeah

But until then I’ll just be singing the blues
You know I know it’s true

The weight of the world
It’s the weight of the world, yeah, yeah, yeah

Weight of the world isn’t gonna crush me
I’m getting closer to who I want to be
What makes a woman as good as you love me?
You know, I’ll never know

Maybe one day when day when I have all the clues
I’ll write a book and give you facts you can use, yeah

But until then I’ll just be singing the blues
You know I know it’s true

The weight of the world
It’s the way of the world
The weight of the world, yeah, yeah, yeah

When You're Not Around

Written By: Sammy Nickell

When You’re Not Around Music and lyrics by Sammy Nickell
I stayed awake, stayed awake all night
Waiting for you to call me like you said
You never called, it’s not ok with me
‘Cause in the morning, feel like I am dead

Maybe I like getting high and falling down
Maybe you like your feet firm on the ground
Love fades away
When you’re not around

I played it safe, played it safe all year
Hoping you’d finally see me act my age
You turn away, turn away from me
And say I’m keeping you inside a cage

Maybe I like getting high and falling down
Maybe you like your feet firm on the ground
Love fades away
When you’re not around

And it goes on every day
People refusing to pay attention to
The ones they love
And never want to go away

I’m better now, less bitter than I was before
Because I know you love me so
I’m happy now, laugh out loud
Because I know you would never let me go (never let me go)

Maybe I like getting high and falling down
Maybe you like your feet firm on the ground
Love fades away
When you’re not around

Maybe I like getting high and falling down
Maybe you like your feet firm on the ground
Love fades away
When you’re not around

Night turns to day
When you’re not around
I’m not okay
When you’re not around
