Story

There are just some people in life who can’t see good for other people because they can’t see it for themselves. This song is about pushing past the noise and having the courage to be the best version of you. You shouldn’t have to dull your light for someone else to shine or stay silent so someone else can feel like they’re being heard. If they don’t want to step up they can feel free to step aside.

Lyrics

Always right? Say we’ll always be friends

But those kinds of lies never work out right in the end

Corruption by design, you won’t change my mind about us

You misused my trust

 

This is war

You know what I mean!

Little girls are taught they should never be seen closing doors

Don’t you stand in my way

Think I’m just gonna take this?

Come and get it

 

In your eyes its constant jealousy

Like you forgot the times I’d need the rescuing

Lied to me? that’s not the life I choose

Here take the better days

Give back my skies of gray

 

This is war

You know what I mean!

Little girls are taught they should never be seen closing doors

Don’t you stand in my way

Think I’m just gonna take this?

Come and get it

 

All the fights when I thought our bonds were tight

I tried to make it true, you fought with all your might

Competition?

Its fine I set you free unlike you I’m not afraid

Let it ……. be!

 

This is war!

You know what I mean?

Little girls are taught they should never be seen closing doors

Don’t you stand in my way

Think I’m just gonna take this?

Come and get it

 

You know what I mean!

Little girls are taught they should never be seen closing doors

Don’t you stand in my way

Think I’m just gonna take this?

Come and get it

 

Think I’m just gonna take this (shit)?

Come and get it

Story

I wrote this song during my "dark" days. It's tough when the people who seem to hurt you the most are the ones that you're supposed to count on to protect you and make you feel safe. When they slowly become the main cause for your pain you're left wondering how far they're willing to go before you break.

Lyrics

Lying awake

Hearing the sound of my heart as it drops

With no way out 

As it falls it echoes

No other way that I know I'm empty inside 

Tell me is that justified

 

Walking around with this chip on my shoulder

But it dulls the sounds of their laughter when I come around

With my holes 

And broken bones

No other way that I know I'm empty inside

Tell me is that justified

 

Searching for peace and some kind of relief

From the hardships I've face

And time can't erase all the things that I've seen

The places I've been

When you call I follow

 

(call, follow)

 

No other way that I know I'm  empty inside

Tell me is that justified

Story

I wrote you bring the dawn for a friend of mine. Her brother was in the hospital and they weren't sure he'd make it. I've never been good at saying how I feel and so I wrote this song and gave it to her. Its all the things things I wish I could have said not to comfort her but in an I can't imagine what you're going through but I'm here you can let it out I'll get it kind of way. 

 

I think we've all been to this point at one time or another when its hard to say out loud how you feel so this song really means a lot to me and I hope it will to you too.

Lyrics

You bring the dawn

 

Losing you is like losing the dawn

Without light without hope

In the darkness that we grope

For something anything a little bit more

Wishing you'd walk through my door

Never felt so insecure

And my life is so unsure

 

Stuck in yesterday and the thought of you

My world is painted blue

And how could I get through

Without the comfort of your arms

You bring the dawn

You bring the dawn

 

It's hard to hear the words moving on

Just like that and it's a fact

There's no way I'd get you back

So I'll keep you safe here locked in my heart

The memories I'd freeze inside me for eternity

There's no way I can let it be

 

Stuck in yesterday and the thought of you

My world is painted blue

And how can I get through

Without the comfort of your arms

You bring the dawn

You bring the dawn

You bring the dawn

You bring the dawn

 

Its hard to lose those parts of me

The ones that you grew

The parts you always knew

I never thought that I'd see that day

I'd miss your shadows and be standing on my own

On my own

 

Stuck in yesterday and the thought of you

My world is painted blue

And how can I get through

Without the comfort of your arms

You bring the dawn

You bring the dawn

 

Losing you is like losing the dawn

You bring the dawn (ah)

 

Its hard to hear the words moving on

You bring the dawn (ah)

Story

I wrote this song late 2013. I was dating this guy for about six months and we had decided from the beginning to take it slow and not put labels on us however I took a vacation out of the country for a month and when I got back I got a host of messages he had sent that I never got of him saying he missed me and wanted me to come home and that he didn't know how much I meant to him until now, which I didn't answer cause I never got them and even though we spent time together after that things were never really the same, we were fighting all the time and eventually decided to see other people. He was and I didn't and this song says exactly how I felt the day we decided to break up. We still hang out and I still really care about him and he's always there for me but I think we both agreed a while now that even though we care we won't work as a couple which is fine cause as the song says we can always live to fight another day. 

Lyrics

ANOTHER DAY

 

VERSE:        It's just another ordinary day

                  Side streets and dead ends

                  I'm not getting my way again

                  Cause we're more than just friends

                  Do you 

                  See the obvious tune

                 I'm still in love with you

                 Still in love with you

 

CHORUS:   No booking, booking the hall

                I'll get us on track cause I'm not afraid to fall

                For you

                I'll melt in your eyes 

                You steal my heart away (away)

                Live to fight another day

                Live to fight another day

 

VERSE:      Can't you see she's not your type at all

                All her dresses and tans and you're looking my way again

                So our romance begins 

                You fall for me

                You think I can't see that she's not where you wanna be

                Where you wanna be

 

CHORUS:   No booking booking the hall

                I'll get us on track cause I'm not afraid to fall

                For you 

                I'll melt in your eyes

                You steal my heart away (away)

                Live to fight another day

                Live to fight another day

 

VERSE:      And if at all

                You change your mind

                Don't hesitate to look behind (I'll be there)

                Love you and to cherish you and to fall

               Whenever you call

 

CHORUS:   No booking booking the hall

                I'll get us on track cause I'm not afraid to fall

                For you

                I'll melt in your eyes 

                You steal my heart away (away)

                Live to fight another day (2x)
