Lyrics

Maybe Tonight Maybe Tomorrow

Written By: Scott Leger

I heard the news today. It came out of nowhere.
I wish I could run away,
but where would I go?
Is this my destiny? Something so unfair... What will become of me?
God only knows.

And they say the road to heaven might lead us back through hell.
Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow, we will win this fight and bury this sorrow.
We're so alive, still holding on, not ready to die, so we LIVESTRONG.

My pride is left for dead, as my world gets shaken.
The thoughts inside my head are so hard to control.
I am staring down the unknown, but one thing is certain.
You could break my body, but you will never break my soul.

And they say the road to heaven might leads us back through hell, but we're holding on for more
than stories to tell.

Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow, we will win this fight and bury this sorrow.
We're so alive, still holding on, not ready to die, so we LIVE

Too much for me

Written By: Scott Leger

verse1:
There's a beauty I see in your eyes
and the way that you move makes me feel so alive
there's a warmth that I feel on your skin
and a place that you take me that I've never been
I want nothing more than to just be yours
but even a fool can see

Chorus:
You're too much for me, girl I know its true
and I'll never be good enough for you
my sweet misery you're a dream come true
you're too much for me, but I want all of you

verse2:
You're a gift that I do not deserve
like an endless adventure with no return
and the love that I feel in my soul
is the first and the last that I'll ever know
I want nothing more than to just be yours
and even this fool can see

Bridge:
You're all that I want
and all that I need
worthy of you is what I want to be
what I want to be

Too much for me
