Lyrics

More To Show You

Written By: Stephanie Corby

VERSE
I got a crooked smile
A broken bank and a lack of style
But I got more to show you

Yeah I’m not a perfect girl
My knees are scarred from the gravel road
But I got more to show you

CHORUS
Cause there’s a reason I’m here
Even with all my flaws
I can love you my dear
This could only be perfection
The moment is here

VERSE
At night I sing my soulful songs
Tales of woe and loves gone wrong
But I got more to show you

Cause this heart was made to love
To find a joy and rise above
Yeah I got more to show

CHORUS
Cause there’s a reason I’m here
Even with all my flaws
I can love you my dear
This could only be perfection
The moment is here

You Don't Deserve To Know

Written By: Stephanie Corby

VERSE
You’ve been wondering what I’m thinking
Looks like you’re the last to know
About this poison I’ve been drinking
So low

You won’t acknowledge you’re the one
Who never chose to make a start
Our Chapter One was left undone
Sweetheart

CHORUS
I won’t say what’s on my mind
You don’t deserve to know
I wanna leave what’s left behind
And go, just go

VERSE
Looking back on this year
I don’t think I’ve come this far
Cutting truth, spinning wheels
Baring the scars

CHORUS
I won’t say what’s on my mind
You don’t deserve to know
I wanna leave what’s left behind
And go, just go

BRIDGE
You may think you’ve got your hooks in me
But you’ve got it all wrong
I will fight this fight until I’ve won

CHORUS
I won’t say what’s on my mind
You don’t deserve to know
I wanna leave what’s left behind
And go, just go

Choose Me

Written By: Stephanie Corby

Why do we live in a moment
When the future is so hard to bear
And why do we cling to forever
When tomorrow will never be there

Why do I, lie awake and cry
Will this longing ever end?

Why do we live in the moment
When the future is so hard to bear
Don’t let me go,
Don’t let me go
Choose me

I’m tired of asking the questions
I’m tired of holding it all
My heart has found its intention
But the timing is wrong for this fall

So why do I, lie awake and cry
Will this longing ever end?

Why do we live in the moment
When the future is so hard to bear
Don’t let me go,
Don’t let me go
Choose me
Choose me

Learn To Let You Go

Written By: Stephanie Corby/Jonathan Byrd

VERSE 1
Saying goodbye to you
is the hardest thing I’ve ever
Had to do
I took the hammer, swung it hard
Left the rubble on the boulevard
And faced the truth

PRE-CHORUS
That you and I were going nowhere
Love was not enough to stay

CHORUS
I’m gonna have to learn to let you go
Though it burns me from the inside out
I’m gonna have to learn to let you go
Though it burns me from the inside out
I’ll find what I’m all about
If I ever learn to let you go

VERSE 2
The heat is rising off Highway 1
Sure is good to feel the sun
And see the blue
Hope is riding out in front of me
Pointed North to Destiny
I wait for proof

PRE-CHORUS
That in the end I’m going somewhere
There’s got to be a better way

CHORUS
I know I'm gonna learn to let you go
Though it burns me from the inside out
I know I'm gonna learn to let you go
Though it burns me from the inside out
I’ll find what I’m all about
If I ever learn to let you go

BRIDGE
Something's round the corner
Something's round the bend
And now I know I'm going somewhere
Nothing's ever felt so true

CHORUS
I finally learned to let you go
Though it burned me from the inside out
I finally learned to let you go
Though it burned me from the inside out
I found out what I'm all about
And learned how to let you go
