Sky Thoughts

Written By: Shannon Magee


V1
Silence is creeping underneath my skin/ The dark is still reigning, light has yet to begin/ And all these thoughts inside my head/ have lost their meaning with coming of the dawn/ the dawn/ I look up to the sky and I imagine what I must look like to you/ what I must look like to you/
Chorus
What do you see/ what do you see/ Is there any truth, is there beauty/ I want you to see/ I want you to see/ reflections of your truth, of your beauty
V2
Sunlight is coming/ warmth touches me/ I run with the morning as I try to see/ past this time we call reality/ I am running towards a new beginning/ beginning/ I look up to the sky and I wonder what your eyes look like/ Are they a color I have never seen/
Chorus 2
Are they blue, are they blue like your sea/ or are they the color of some melody

A Perfect Song

Written By: Shannon Magee


Verse 1

I want to write a perfect song/ but the words they just won’t come/ I want it to be meaningful/ I want to touch hearts, minds and souls/ I want to write a perfect song/ it doesn’t have to be that long/ but with all the songs in the world/ who am I to think that mine might be heard/ I’m only living on a hope/ I’m only living on a dream/ a dream to write a perfect song/ I want to write a perfect song

Verse 2

I want to write a perfect song/ one with a melody so sweet/ a melody that needs no
words/ to be understood and heard/ I want to write a perfect song/ a song for you a song
for me/ a song with joy and tears and love/ a song to help us rise above/ all the things that
strip our hearts bare/ all the reasons that we think of not to care/ about trying to write a
perfect song/ I want to write a perfect song

Nothing I would change

Written By: Shannon Magee

Verse 1

I have been busy/ busy with life/ caught up in everything that’s going on/ I didn’t forget

you/ I could never forget you/ because I love you more then I can say/ but I feel that

lately I haven’t said it enough/ so I’m writing you this song/ because we both know

talking’s not my strong point

Chorus

I/ can’t imagine life now without you/ and I love looking into/ Your eyes so golden and

true/ there is nothing I would change about you/ there is nothing I would change about

you

Verse 2

I need more time/ time to spend with you/ but there could just never be enough/ I

couldn’t grow tired/ tired of being with you/ because I love you and I always will/ So I

hope that you will never feel anything less/ then the treasure that you are/ oh there is

nothing I wouldn’t try to do for you

Chorus

Bridge

Inside out and outside in/ oh everything about you pulls me in and I am happy to do

nothing more then sit with you

Say

Written By: Shannon Magee

Verse 1
So I love you and you love me/ and now all that's left to do is be/ faithful and true to me to you/ love that stays the same though stars may fall/ down from the sky and shatter into dust/ this is of no matter/ it won't break us/ beautiful and strong like a tidal wave/ love that has no limits but what we say

Chorus
Say/ that you'll love me even when/ life gets hard and we are brought down/ Say/ oh say/ Say/ oh say

Verse 2
So take my hand in yours and hold on tight/ This will not be easy/ We'll have to fight/ I will take your hand and I'll hold on tight/ I will sing to you through the darkest nights/ Nights when the stars won't stop falling from the sky/ Nights when we can't imagine light/ It will come again so just close your eyes/ It will come again with the sunrise

Chorus

Bridge
No matter what comes my way/ my heart will always belong to you for forever and a day/ No matter what people say/ My heart has found its place/ it's here with you for forever and a day

A Sad Song

Written By: Shannon Magee


V1
I see the signs all around me/ I hear unspoken words/ I think I know what is happening/ but I can’t say it out loud/ that makes it real/ I don’t want it to be real/ There’s nothing I can do to stop this/ I’m like a ship that’s run aground/ There’s nothing I can say to fix it/ I’m like an airplane going down

Chorus
(And) I’m scared/ I’m terrified/ I am scared/ I’m terrified/ I’m terrified/ Please don’t leave me alone/ Please don’t’ leave me alone/ With my thoughts to haunt me/ and my fears to taunt me

V2
So you have to go and leave me/ You say we’ll always be close/ But you and I both know its different/ There is no meaning in apart/ There is no meaning in apart/ You say that you will always love me/ and I will always love you/ I don’t see why you have to do this/ why can’t you give it one more try/ because…

Chorus

V3
I am going to walk through this/ I am going to come out strong/ I know there’s healing for the broken and I am going to trust that now although…
Chorus

Take to Heart

Written By: Shannon Magee

Verse 1
Wearing out and wearing down/ this is how I feel right now/ Never enough time to do/ all the things I meant to/ I never know what day it is/ they all just run together/ is it always going to be like this/ or someday will it be better/ someday will it be better

Chorus
LIfe is a crazy thing/ sometimes I forget how to breathe/ can't you please take my hands/ remind me of who I am/ I want to be more then this/ life is meant to be lived/ help me to not get caught up/ in things I should not take to heart

Verse 2
Walking back and forth in time/ to the music in my mind/ this is what helps get me through/ long days and short nights too/ and though the melodies are sad/ I just keep right on singing/ some day the nights are going to change/ from minor back to major/ from minor back to major

Chorus

Bridge
I am done pretending that I'm strong enough/ I am done with trying hard to be someone I'm not/ someone I'm not
