Lyrics

Show Me

Written By: Sarah Siddiqui

You...you're not being
straight with me
I can feel it in the vibe,
You...you must be
low on dignity
you're so high on pride,

Show me who you are then leave
Show me all you hide then leave

It's so red around your eyes
are you getting by again?
No...don't stand there
and say you're here
you're nowhere near anymore

Show me who you are then leave
Show me all you hide then leave
Turn around show your face for the last time
Show me who you are then leave

You're gonna lose control
I'm gonna shake this off
You're gonna miss this soul
I'm gonna miss this love
I'm gonna miss this love

Show me who you are then leave
Show me all you hide then leave
Turn around show your face
for the last time

Show me... Turn around

Hospital Room

Written By: Sarah Siddiqui

Now you're gone...
I am here and you're gone ...
Move now,

I was at home
in my hospital room,
On the bedside
a picture of you,
I was trying
to catch up with you,
I was dying
I could not move

Now you're gone...
I am here and you're gone...
Move now... I can't

I know I hurt you
I'm sorry for that,
I would've went through
the pain you had,
But I remember
all of our smiles
when you were healthy
we were happy,

Now you're gone...
I am here and you're gone
Move now... I can't

Are you pain free?
Are you free in the sky
Are you happy
Can you see from the sky
Can you see me from the sky

we tried...I was only nine
you were barely strong... we tried

I was at home
in my hosptial room,
On the bedside
a picture of you,
I was trying
to catch up with you,
I was dying... I could not move...
now

Rainbow

Written By: Sarah Siddiqui

why do you ask her
why she is...she is so?
don't you know
that's like trying
trying to understand a rainbow

and you can't go back anyways
she lift you up whether 'not
you say so
and it wouldn't make sense
anyways
to miss out on such a rainbow

why is she special
she knows you're in doubt
of how someone so pure
could really be found
in this crowd

and you can't go back anyways
she lifts you up whether 'not
you say so
and it wouldn't makes sense
anyways
to miss out on such a rainbow

here comes this feeling
it's bigger than all of you
you wanna take hold of this
but it's bigger than all of you

and you can't go back anyways
she lifts you up whether 'not
you say so
and it wouldn't make sense anyways
to miss out on such a rainbow
