Lyrics

Better

Written By: Susan Morris

VS 1
It’s been 6 long months of the pain you’ve caused
Deceived by a man who seemed sincere
And I thought my heart would always be enough
Until you brought to life a woman’s worst fear

CHANNEL
And with you promises and all you said
How can you still lay down your head
Just knowing how this all turned out
I hope her beds still worth it now
Cause all I know is this

CHORUS
I’d be a whole lot better, better
If I never ever, ever
Gave you this slightest chance to enter my heart
Cause you lie and you cheat
And say nothing that I can believe
And if I’d forget your face forever
I’d be a whole lot better

VS 2
And I still see you
Tell me do you have no heart
When you come around and tell me that I should be fine
Don’t you think I deserve a proper apology
Or some kind of sympathy or sense of understanding
Of you’ve broken me down

CHANNEL
And with you promises and all you said
How can you still lay down your head
Just knowing how this all turned out
I hope her beds still worth it now
Cause all I know is this

CHORUS
I’d be a whole lot better, better
If I never ever, ever
Gave you this slightest chance to enter my heart
Cause you lie and you cheat
And say nothing that I can believe
And if I’d forget your face forever
I’d be a whole lot better…

BRIDGE
…Knowing that I wasn’t the kind of person to fall for a series of
Hollow words, never meant to last at all
Only meant to sustain me until you let me fall

CHORUS
I’d be a whole lot better, better
If I never ever, ever
Gave you this slightest chance to enter my heart
Cause you lie and you cheat
And say nothing that I can believe
And if I’d forget your face forever
I’d be a whole lot better

Best Days

Written By: Susan Morris

VS 1
Remember me, the greatest thing you’ll never get back
Remember me, tossed aside and let slip from your grasp
Haunted by the good times, my ghost will never leave your side

Chorus
If you died today it wouldn’t matter
Losing me left your life shattered
From the best days, the best days of your life
Go ahead and end it all now
Rid yourself from your own hell
From the best days, the best days of your life
And it’s all down hill from here
Yeah it’s all down hill from here

VS 2
Think of me, when you see she don’t add up
Think of me, when it hurts cause your life sucks
Regret in the front of your mind, that’s no way to live a life

Chorus
If you died today it wouldn’t matter
Losing me left your life shattered
From the best days, the best days of your life
Go ahead and end it all now
Rid yourself from your own hell
From the best days, the best days of your life
And it’s all down hill from here
Yeah it’s all down hill from here

Bridge
Go ahead and end it all now
Rid yourself from your own hell
From the best days, the best days of your life

Chorus
If you died today it wouldn’t matter
Losing me left your life shattered
From the best days, the best days of your life
Go ahead and end it all now
Rid yourself from your own hell
From the best days, the best days of your life
And it’s all down hill from here
Yeah it’s all down hill from here

On My Side

Written By: Susan Morris

VS 1
Hey, is that all you can say
When I care enough to let you occupy my heart’s space
Please, meet me in between
Don’t over think a thing
Just follow through with all I see in my dreams
My heart is not collecting dust
Cause baby you must let me be the one
Move now a little close
Don’t think of saying no
Just let this feeling go where it will go

CHORUS
This life is too short to take your time
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Cross over that bridge be on my side
Whoa, whoa, whoa
On my side

VS 2
Hey, don’t look the other way
I know you got something to say
Might as well say it today
It’s clear, I know just how you feel
But the difference is real
I’ve said whats I know so come clean and reveal, reveal

CHORUS
This life is too short to take your time
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Cross over that bridge be on my side
Whoa, whoa, whoa
On my side

BRIDGE
So many things are so uncertain in this life
Maybe it’s because when people wonder
At times they never try
Instrumental
CHORUS
This life is too short to take your time
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Cross over that bridge be on my side
Whoa, whoa, whoa

Anymore

Written By: Sean Algaier/Byron Sommardahl

VS 1
I used to feel this way inside
I just found a way to tell you I don’t need you anymore
You used to tell me how to live my life, my way, my loves, my rules
But I can’t find a reason anymore
I used to feel the weight of words
I used to let the self-concern consume me
I used to run into your arms
I never really saw the harm, but nevermore

Chorus
Nevermore

VS 2
I thought I knew the face of love
You need to know I’ve had enough pretending
Cause you’ll no longer know me anymore

Chorus
Anymore

Having Fun

Written By: Susan Morris

VS 1
Maybe you smile when you’re bored and laugh when you are sad
Hold me close when you want me away and lie so I don’t feel bad
Call me up when you don’t wanna talk, touch my face when you don’t want it there
Treat Me like I’m the only one in the room when you never cared

CHORUS
And I thought, I thought, I thought

VS 2
Melodramatic well that’s me but I know what I feel and I know what I see
Those words rolling off of your tongue weren’t lies they just weren’t meant to be
And I can rest now knowing that your intentions were good
But it could have worked out if you had felt like me it would

CHORUS
Cause I thought, I thought we were having fun, I thought I thought we were having fun

VS 3
I gotta stop tying to find you somewhere in my future
Stupid of me to dwell I should just say to hell with it and take what I’ve learned
But I thought, I thought we were having fun, I thought……………

CHORUS
Cause I thought, I thought we were having fun, I thought

ENDING
And you did some great acting boy
Cause you wouldn’t leave what you enjoyed
Now I’m letting go of what I never had
Like you I’ll live in the present not in the past

Tag
I gotta stop tying to find you somewhere in my future

So Close

Written By: Susan Morris

VS 1
You’re never quite there when you think you might be
You’re eye is on It but you’re too far from the prize
And even when you thumping tells you one thing
The ugly face of the hidden truth says hi
When you were so close, so close

VS 2
And memories stay true as a faithful companion
But who wants to relive what’s loved and what’s lost
When we were so close, so close

CHORUS
One day you’ll be alone when we were so close, so close

VS 3
So how can someone fool themselves so much
My heart must tell such lies to my head
And bitter sweet is the fruit that we eat from each other
You feel so free till you see it’s spoiled and gone bad, and it’s gone bad
Cause we were so close, so close

CHORUS
One day you’ll be alone when we were so close, so close
And only we will know how we were so close, so close

BRIDGE
Oooooohhhhsssss………

CHORUS
One day you’ll be alone when we were so close, so close

It's Me

Written By: Susan Morris

VS. 1
Its me but you try to deny it when I try to show you
Its me why do you try to hide from what’s right in front of you
It’s me,
It’s me I’ve been here all along just watching you play
Knowing its me waiting for the time when I would hear you say its me

CHORUS
It’s me, don’t look so hard
It’s me Yeahhhhhh

VS. 2
And it’s you who knows me ever so completely and its you
Who knows that somewhere down there deeply
It’s me

CHORUS
It’s me, don’t look so hard
It’s me Yeahhhhhh

BRIDGE
Don’t matter if you tell me with words I can see it in your face
Your heart that I’m so in love with knows I fill that empty space
It’s me
It’s me

(Instrumental)

CHORUS
It’s me, don’t look so hard
It’s me Yeahhhhhh

CHORUS
It’s me, don’t look so hard
It’s me Yeahhhhhh

Truth Hurts

Written By: Susan Morris

VS 1
I thought about driving to your place
Cause maybe the sight of my face would be all the answer
That you’d need to clear up the doubt surrounding me
But only time will tell if I stay away maybe someday
You’ll honestly be who you were to me

CHORUS
I’m adorable and I’m beautiful I didn’t have to hear those words
I thought maybe I was something special but the truth hurts the worst
And you said that I could keep you for as long as I wanted to
And I like to think it’s true that you weren’t standing when I was falling for you

VS 2
And I thought about a lot of things you said and did
My heart was yours but you didn’t want it and I couldn’t make you
Take it from me and it seems that you never needed it anyway
Damn you for your irresistible way of fooling me
It’s still so hard to believe and I let it hurt me

CHORUS
I’m adorable and I’m beautiful I didn’t have to hear those words
I thought maybe I was something special but the truth hurts the worst
And you said that I could keep you for as long as I wanted to
And I like to think it’s true that you weren’t standing when I was falling for you

BRIDGE
And do you say all of the same things to everyone
Was I another attempt to get what you want
When will I finally reach the point where I don’t care if I ever remember your name
Cause you have dragged me in the dirt but don’t see how you can be blamed
And you said there was nothing left to discuss how about the end of us
And how you have lost my trust

CHORUS
I’m adorable and I’m beautiful I didn’t have to hear those words
I thought maybe I was something special but the truth hurts the worst
And you said that I could keep you for as long as I wanted to
But that was never true cause you weren’t standing when I was falling for you

Be A Man

Written By: Susan Morris

VS 1
There’s a tension in the air now don’t deny it
You can control it if you don’t blow it
Take the feelings that you know we both are feeling
And make it happen cause you know I’m willing
Willing to let you come closer

CHORUS
Show me some confidence; I’m here in the open
Be a man
How obvious can I be, put your hands on me
Be a man

VS 2
Don’t say another word just show me
I’m being pushy cause I know you want me
I could walk away this chance could pass you
But don’t me do that
Cause I don’t wan to if I don’t have to
So come on baby and bring it on and on, on, on

CHORUS
Show me some confidence; I’m here in the open
Be a man
How obvious can I be, put your hands on me
Be a man

BRIDGE
Hearts are beating and our minds are churning
And we can’t walk away from our hearts are yearning
And I’ve made very clear that I wanna be here with you
So what’s the hold up my dear
Baby can I just say you’ve had too many days to think through
Exactly how I feel about you
And if we have to discuss it anymore
Fed up, I’m headed straight to the door

CHORUS
Show me some confidence; I’m here in the open
Be a man
How obvious can I be, put your hands on me
Be a man

Wake Up

Written By: Susan Morris

VS 1
What is it that you want from me
What is it exactly whatever it is I couldn’t give it to you right
Don’t get me wrong I know you love me
But I can’t see it when you act like you’re above me
And I’m not so stupid, don’t treat me that way
You don’t have all the answers till you’ve tried to hear what others have to say

CHORUS
Wake up, get up, go up the stairs
Tell me the pains no longer there
I eat I go and merge into traffic on the interstate, I ache
And it’s so hard to see with my eyes so watery
I’m such a mess maybe I should just wreck
But I’m not that stupid
And I remind myself a thousand times that you were never perfect

VS 2
And you blame me for all your grief
But do you ever think about how these hearts involved effect me
And when he speaks you listen but when I do I feel so small
And you all wonder why I barely show my face at all

CHORUS
Wake up, get up, go up the stairs
Tell me the pains no longer there
I eat I go and merge into traffic on the interstate, I ache
And it’s so hard to see with my eyes so watery
I’m such a mess maybe I should just wreck
But I’m not that stupid
And I remind myself a thousand times that you were never perfect

BRIDGE
Perfect

CHORUS
Wake up, get up, go up the stairs
Tell me the pain’s no longer there
I eat I go and merge into traffic on the interstate, I ache
And it’s so hard to see with my eyes so watery
I’m such a mess maybe I should just wreck
But I’m not that stupid
And I remind myself a thousand times that you were never perfect
