Lyrics

Nothing To Lose

Written By: Brian Elder

She says that it's like my world is fallin all around me
she tells herself that she's fine, then I hear her scream out, please somebody find me

she says her world, it seems so empty and cold
(and) she thinks that she, she's all alone

her mirror shows a reflection of a girl that once used to be strong
only shattered pieces remain now for this girl that says she can't hold on

she says her world, it seems so empty and cold
(and) she thinks that she, she's all alone
(and) when your world crashes down, (you) just get up off the ground
just give it a try, you got nothing to lose

oh, beaten and bruised
oh, broken and used
she screams, somebody help me get out of this place

she says her world, it seems so empty and cold
(and) she thinks that she, she's all alone
(and) when your world crashes down, (you) just get up off the ground
just give it a try, you got nothing to lose

Someone Else

Written By: Brian Elder

I stayed here for you but you never came back home
it's probably cause you're out with someone else
I try to tell myself that by the time that you get home
I won't be here cause I can't do this anymore
you infect me with your lines
(it's) like I don't hear you think
so this time before you start to speak you can take it back

cause you won't break me down again
and you can't take it all away

your stain is on this town, I hear the voices on the streets
telling secrets that you keep with someone else
I try to tell myself that this is it (and) I won't be back
(I try to tell myself that this time I won't be back)
I won't let you do this to me anymore
the infection on your tounge, it opens up and starts to bleed
so this time before you start to speak you can take it back

cause you won't break me down again
now you, you're left here all alone

I keep repeating in my head
the things you said, the things you did

cause you won't break me down again
and you can't take it all away

Drag Me Down

Written By: Brian Elder

I'm waiting around here
for something to come undone now
I can't believe you're still here
I won't let life drag me down

Well I've seen some hard times
seems everything, it likes to bring you down
but I keep my feet on the ground
(and) I won't let life drag me down

someone once told me life is hard
just don't let it kick you around
you have to fight for what you want
and don't let it get you down

I'm waiting around here
for something to come undone now

someone once told me life is hard
just don't let it kick you around
you have to fight for what you want
and don't let it get you down
