Gotta gotta be free – Taking time from my misery I know I know I know you know Living life aint easy – Backing tracking everything I believe I know I know I know you know I said love I said love wont you please come and pick me up I said love I said love wont you tell me that I’ve had enough Faking smiles for free – Make believe that my life is me I know I know I know you know Running round is easy – If you feel you have nowhere to be I know I know I know you know I said love I said love wont you please come and pick me up I said love I said love wont you tell me that I’ve had enough Ohhh I’m going scared and take no more Ohhh I feel like I’m there I can’t breath for sure Life has wondered me here I can’t find the door Ohhh I’m going scared and take no more

They say, life is just too short - I never believed them but now I understand Last year, feels like just one week – I closed my eyes open up now here I am Days go by – Time oh how it flies and the memories keep flashing through my mind All the tears we cry – though all the bumpy tides I promise love one day I’ll fly Before the hourglass runs dry They say live for just one dream – but I got 3,4,5 6 hell I don’t know I guess we only get one chance – we only have one life so hold on tight lets go To me there is only one of you but there’s a thousand other boys like me And we’re still young our times not done I promise you will be happy As long as you are by side Days go by – Time oh how it flies and the memories keep flashing through my mind All the tears we cry – though all the bumpy tides I promise love one day I’ll fly Before the hourglass runs dry Love I promise I will be right by your side

Like a lovely little game___ You playing me just the same___ Oh like always_____ I wonder could it change Like a spooky little dream___ I’m speculating what it means____ Oh like always____ It always means the same And love I can only imagine your voice shouting down to me oh boy you better make a choice Dreams they are only what you make of them so why don’t you stop your lies there no need to pretend That you alive______ Like a mind that can not think____ My life can’t ever seem to be in sync___ Oh like always____ I’m too afraid to blink Waiting patiently to shake_____ Wondering how much more I can take___ Oh like always___ my body seems to ache And love I can only imagine your voice shouting down to me oh boy you better make a choice Dreams they are only what you make of them so why don’t you stop your lies there no need to pretend that you alive I say won’t you please just let me go___ Then I will start grow Like a man ridden with shame____ I fear I’ll never be the same___ Oh like always____ I’ll always be the insane

Take a walk take hike take a deep breath and sigh lets think it over Wanna scream wanna shout want to yell you start to pout I loose composure Now time flows out the window as the light bulbs starts to flicker Do I stay should I leave not sure it changes anything now Life can be cold matter-of-factly Plans don’t work out smooth or exactly We analyze cant compromise feeling like ours minds have been ran over Let’s modify and organize sort through our thoughts and just be closer Now time flows out the window as the light bulbs starts to flicker We could be stop to see everything that we need can be right here Life can be cold matter-of-factly Plans don’t work out smooth or exactly Rain on me I’ll give you the strength you seek promise the love I need and I’ll give you more So rain on me wash away of everything fix all the wounds that sting there’s so much more for us

I can’t buy you the life That you think you need that you think you need But I can promise you my life. You can have all of me I’ll give you everything I said the money don’t matter if we aint got love Time don’t mean much if when it’s all used up So baby say to me A thousand miles traveled how about a few more Hop in the car away we roll where we need so please Fall on Me Come and lay with all night And disappear from all we fear I promise I will treat you right Just hold on tight lets live the life I said the money don’t matter if we aint got the love time don’t mean much if when its all used up So baby say to me A thousand miles traveled how about a few more Hop in the car away we roll where we need so please Fall on Me I say we do baby I got you and you got me to so come baby please.

I can’t take no more Our delusions come unfold when we’re waiting like we do Stop and think tonight I’m holding time to tight when I’m waiting like I always do for you Love I will waste my life with you Love I will waste my time for you Love I will waste my life with you Cause you know that I do Common ground tonight Seem so out of site when I’m waiting just for you So close my open eyes Take breath outside when I’m waiting like I always do for you Love I will waste my life with you Love I will waste my time for you Love I will waste my life with you Cause you know that I do Wasting time’s alright by your side by mine I’m feeling just fine wasting time with you Love I will waste my life with you Love I will waste my time for you Love I will waste my life with you Cause you know that I do

The duration light is buzzing And somebody is calling me home Fixated on the bottom Confused about the outcome don’t know which way I’ll go But I got to fight be tough Standing in the open But feeling like I’ll never be known The reflection from the surface Fails to show a purpose - Don’t know which way I’ll go But I got to fight be tough Don’t you ever feel like I do Can’t stand to be alone just like you Alone and I can’t find you Feeling like my minds came unglued Situation defines us But at time it might blinds us - Don’t know which way to go

I got it all though it seem between life and all my dreams Standing tall but I fall and I’m caught just right between Where we are – do we wander through this life All alone – or will you stay right by my side Take a photo take a snap shot of our lives Crop it down edit all that you don’t like Where we are like where you want to be in life Wanna go I will you stay right by your side You got everything I need - Could we finally start to see We got all the love we need - But the mind plays tricks it seems We got to try to fail to know we gave it everything Stuck inside four walls complain about what we need Here we are do we stand up do we fight Like a star do we shine on thought the night You got everything I need - Could we finally start to see We got all the love we need - But the mind plays tricks it seems Bridge That all we got to do – Is just believe in us You got everything I need - Could we finally start to see We got all the love we need - But the mind plays tricks it seems

Wake up love it’s time to let it go Feeling like the mind has lost control We are young and we’re afraid We have falling from our grace Wake up love listen to your soul Hear the words they’re quite but they’re bold Absorb it all Life just goes and I guess you just got to say Why do we bleed and how do we wash away Why do I need why cant I seem to say I guess things are fine but nothing is every okay Wake up love so you can hear me say I’m trying hard to find those better days We can go we can be We can fight why we can’t believe Put it down so you can let it go Free your mind from all that we’ve been told Forget it all Life just goes and I guess you just got to say Why do we bleed and how do we wash away Why do I need why cant I seem to say I guess things are fine but nothing is every okay I wish I could scream I wish I could finally figure out what its about I want to believe I want to never have a doubt what its about Wake up love

Hide between the lights that you shine Within your glow no one can find The day seem so far and behind You wonder where has gone the time I promise you I will see it through Love such a beautiful day Lets forget all the things they say Love even if it starts to rain Follow me through the storm we brave together With all of the choices we make It still seem like we make the same mistakes But learn as we live like we should Life we show you its good I promise you I will see it through Love such a beautiful day Lets forget all the things they say Love even if it starts to rain Follow me through the storm we brave together If your lost and can’t be found and need someone around call me love you know that I’m down I don’t fly but I can drive so if you need a place to hide call me love I’ll be right by your side

Stop and go everywhere - tell me that I never cared to be I Blind my life from all I see – blame it on the failed attempts by me Oh I still believe – But leaves fall from my tree Do you agree – We all can’t see I Wanna be everything – but maybe life gots other plans for me Screaming loud inside my head - making sure all my thoughts get said Oh I still believe – But leaves fall from my tree Do you agree – We all can’t see What you wanna do___ Do you think that I am real or should you just pass through What you wanna be___ Is there a chance you can finally set me free

Life we know – It is such a miracle But it feels like a merry go round and round we go Love I know – I could be your stereo Singing every song you know around and around we go Don’t know if I could be Everything that you might need - But around we go So love you know – I know that you’re beautiful Feeling like I lose control around and around we go So come unfold – Pull the ribbon from the bow And findout what I’m wishing for around and round go Don’t know if I could be Everything that you might need - But around we go Love I’m tell you all that I could just need - is your heart So I’m falling down to my knees just beggin you please - can we start I know that we can be so let just go around we go Don’t know if I could be Everything that you might need - But around we go So love lets hold - On to all the things we know Life can be so beautiful around and around we go

Fall on me so I can feel love I’m always in misery Verse 1 Fall, on me together we fall but maybe one day succeed So spread, your wings catch me before I'm falling into my sleep Chorus Now I don't know if you could save a life for my good. Open up my secrets to find out what's my weakness They lie beneath the corners of the cracks where I could hoarder All my thoughts, well that's what I've been taught to do Well that's what I've been taught to do So lie to me so I can feel love I'm always in misery And say those things even if I am wrong please make my mind believe Now I don't know if I could, hide my pride like should Just shout into the darkness, until I’m feeling harmless I'll never understand this life until feel the pain I fight Deep inside well that's what I've been taught to do Well I guess I’m getting old and life is feeling so short And I feel invisible like I could never be sure so say that you see me So stand by me together we're tall, apart I would cease to be And lay your hand hold it against my chest I know you could help this mess

Time goes by so fast and we all get caught up in different things that can keep us from following our dreams. Thank you so much for your support and for giving me the chance to live mine. I am forever grateful for everything you’ve helped me achieve. Never forget your dreams and never stop trying!
