Lyrics

twentyfour

Written By: stephanie.rae.

i've grown so weary in these
twenty-four years
i've worked so hard to become
someone
and when i finally stop to see
i find everything slowly
coming apart at the seams

and i don't know where i'm going anyway
and any road seems to take me there
will you find me here?
somewhere between
a nightmare and a daydream

and so the story goes
when it's heart is breaking
and no one really notices
because there's so little heart
left to break
and oh the valleys can be so deep
when tears become more common
more common than smiles

and i don't know where i'm going anyway
and any road seems to take me there
will you find me here?
somewhere between
a nightmare and a daydream

growing up

Written By: stephanie.rae.

"i wish you were my mom"
"i don't have a mom"
"i'm going to be a mom"
little girl i know you have not found love this way
but you've never felt that anyway

little boy i know you're choosing between red and blue and not because you want to
but you don't want to be another name on a t-shirt "in memory of..."
so what are you supposed to do?

little girl it's okay
not everyone will treat you this way
little boy i believe in you
and all that you can do
i know it's hard to believe me when i say..
your life doesn't always have to be this way

little girl i know your daddy's in jail and your youth was wiped away
so take this little white pill
and maybe it will all go away
your life will never be the same

little boy i know your meals are scarce and big brother lets you help deal.
but that stack of 20's in your pocket
burns a hole in my heart
your life wasn't meant to be this way.

little girl it's okay
not everyone will treat you this way
little boy i believe in you
and all that you can do
i know it's hard to believe me when i say..
your life doesn't always have to be this way

you're growing up and oh so quickly
you've seen planes fly into buildings
and the latest school shooting

little girl it's okay
not everyone will treat you this way
little boy i believe in you
and all that you can do
i know it's hard to believe me when i say..
your life doesn't always have to be this way

your lives don't always have to be this way.

would you stay?

(a prayer to our Maker)

i changed my clothes 10 times today
just trying to feel like myself
sometimes i wish i could crawl out of my skin
where is my relief?
what is wrong with me?

i need your touch to soothe my skin
and i need your voice to calm my mind
i can't do it alone, no, not this time

would you stay if i said
"please don't go. i need you please don't leave me alone"?
would you hold me if i said "i need you so"?
i need you so

you're the only thing that
makes sense to me
when every part of me feels weak
from broken dreams and
empty promises
how could i believe?
would you stay here with me?

i need your touch to soothe my skin and i
i need your voice to calm my mind
i can't do it alone, no,
not this time

would you stay if i said
"please don't go. i need you please don't leave me alone"?
would you hold me if i said "i need you so"?
i need you so
