The Door 03:00
Verse 1: Standing at the door I wondered if someone Would come through once more What were you hoping for But that funny way I came To view it all As if you weren’t alone Chorus 1: Honey I let you down It’s true now the head is achin’ All the thoughts I have are shakin’ Keeping it in so you’ll Be fine but the truth is it’s a lie Do you know that I want to cry Verse 2: Found it wasn’t there How could you have thought That no one would care Now you’re on your own But that funny look you give It’s so frightening You’ve got it down cold Chorus 2: Honey I let you down For sure now the throat is achin’ All the songs I have aren’t makin’ it Keepin’ the tears so you’ll Get by but the truth is it’s a lie Could that be why I want to cry Verse 3: If you always say “I’m sorry” does it ev’ Mean anything Intentions too pure What are they supposed to think I don’t wanna be a fool But if you’re with me I know we’ll go for sure Chorus 3: Honey I let you down I know now the chest is achin’ All the love I have is breakin’ Keeping the faith so you’ll Survive but the truth is it’s a lie Could that be why I want to cry Do you know that I want to cry I know that is why I want to cry baby Oh baby yeah Do you know that’s why I want to cry

Maybe you don’t know my mind Although I’ve made it quite clear Sometimes doubts creep in o’er time Hope that’s not happening here But there’s one thing I know is true No matter what you say or do And even if you could forget My thoughts will be there with you Maybe you don’t know my heart Although it’s there on my sleeve No matter that we are apart Hope you’ll always believe The darkest hours before the dawn May linger dear while you are gone And even if you lost ardor My love will be there with you Ooh, why can’t fairy tales begin and ever-afters all come true Who will fight and slay the dragons if not me than will you do Maybe you don’t know me at all Although I read like a book Everything’s here in my eyes Just have the courage to look So if we meet along the way Forgive me please come judgement day And even if you walk on by I’ll always be there with you Ooh, why can’t fairy tales begin and ever-afters all come true Who will fight and slay the dragons if not me than will you do Oh what will you do What will you do Ooh ooh What will you do Ooh ooh

Verse 1: You whose lips unhinge The moon to make the starry Heavens swoon tell me Will orbs securely placed Not swerve to you embrace You whose eyes the sun Undoes do give celestial Cover pause tell me Chorus 1: Will globes so surely sown Not veer to you behold Undertones unspoken said Oh you Whose beauty worlds would melt Until the earth is dust Itself oh won't you tell me Verse 2: Will moon affixed to sky Not tumble to your side Unheard pleadings being Plead unbidden love Be bidden yet moon Keep falling you whose lips Unhinge the moon to make the Starry heavens swoon Chorus 2: Will orbs securely placed Not swerve to you embrace Whose eyes the sun undoes Oh you Whose beauty worlds would melt Until the earth is dust Itself oh won't you tell me

Take a Stand 03:35
Verse 1: You can’t just ask me to be a friend And lower my standards Why don’t we pretend You can’t expect me to let it go You’re better than that So I thought you should know I don’t understand What you see It’s not just me I take a stand Chorus: I won’t sit back And say nothin’ You can’t put this back on me No no no no What’d you think I would do Verse 2: You can’t just ask me not to come around ‘Cause I’ve got some label It’s bringin’ us down You can’t expect me to believe “the Truth” ‘Cause that’s what you call it That’s a label too I don’t understand You trust in me But then shun me So I take a stand Chorus Bridge: I don’t care what you call it, ooh But I’m tired of all the lies I can’t stand to keep feelin’ so ashmed I don’t want to be judge now, ooh But I’ve been traumatized I don’t want you to feel forever shamed ‘Cause I know how it feels Verse 3: You can’t just ask me to stay away There’s too much at stake Yeah, my mind is made You can’t just ask me to let it go You’re more than a friend I have to let you know I don’t understand What you see It’s not just me But I take a stand Last chorus: I won’t sit back And do nothin’ You can’t put this back on me No no no no What’d you think I would do

Intro: In this world I hope to find True happiness how can I shine What difference does it make now It doesn’t matter anyhow Why do we give up so much Just so we can have some stuff Is it really comforting Do we ever have enough Chorus 1: But for me time stood still on that day From the very moment when I walked away From the biggest fool there could ever be Like to one who has ever loved like you Verse 1: Some people say “my how time flies” As the weeks, months and years pass them by Still others say “I’m nobody’s fool” They live by the new golden rule Chorus 2: But for me, I had all that and more ‘Till the moment I walked through that door Into utter darkness spent on my knees Begging God, “Bring it back to me please” Verse 2: Some people spend their days in the sun Come the night say, “I’ve had a good run” Still others have their quarter hour of fame When it’s over, feel content just the same Chorus 3: Now you’re gone, and my lonely heart proves I’m the one who was the fool Now I wonder if you only knew Bittersweet songs (x3) Ending: In this world I hope to find True happiness how can I shine

Verse 1: My heart has been breakin’ baby I need you to see What can I do to show you baby Just take my love from me I know you try hard now baby So how can this be I’m all caught up in commotion baby I wanna break away free Chorus: If you can’t be my man Then I guess I’ll understand But please don’t leave without me Verse 2: My life can get so confusing baby It seem like tragedy I know I’m dramatic baby Thanks for letting me be I want you to trust me baby I need you to see How much in love I am with you baby It’s what you mean to me Chorus repeat Guitar solo bridge Chorus repeat (with last line twice)

Only a Dream 03:41
Swallow your pride little girl An audience awaits to hear your cries And like the vultures that they are Applaud your show with only lies Give in to all that they say Lure ‘em in with your pills ‘till they relax And we’ll see if they’re still coy With our knives inside their backs It’s the only way to bleed (x2) Who gave those vultures control Poisoned tongues with rhymes sing us asleep As their greedy hands build walls Along this tower built for sheep She said it’s only a dream A walk through life with minds completely numb And see how quickly we forget Just how pathetic we’ve become It’s such a lonely way to dream (x2) Run run for the pills they can help Draw a line off the mirror and she’s gone Take her far far from here Watch the darkness set in as she screams It’s over now (x3) Said these dreams are all gone Big Brother’s watching for you The Party’s fear takes control As the words decay Go and steal back all those years Before he comes and takes us away There’s just no time to explain Two minutes of hate make thin minds crack As it gets down to their soul And turns the whole damn thing to black It’s such a lonely way to be But’s it the only way to be Run run for the pills they can help Draw a line off the mirror and she’s gone Take her far far from here Watch the darkness set in as she screams It’s over now (x3) I can’t try anymore Let additions they gave to me win Once more so the choir gets to sing Let the fear take control and we’re gone

Weak 06:00
Verse 1: It’s so hard to give up with all the hate But now here I am in such a state Maybe this really is the only way Everyone is so restless every day Occupy this and that is what they say Maybe someday I will learn how to pray It’s the year when the world’s supposed to end Time will tell if it’s just another trend I don’t need you to be my best friend Chorus 1: But I can’t help it I keep reachin’ for you Don’t try to stop it I sure think you want me to/too Take a chance on my love I’ll keep waiting patiently Just a test of my strength But I can be weak if you need Verse 2: As I think when I pass the sidewalks blue I can already tell I’ll learn from you If you wanted to leave I’d go too My friend told me be careful take some heed But the reference checked out so perfectly Still I wonder if you play expertly Chorus 2: Still I can’t help it I keep reachin’ for you Don’t try to stop it I sure think you want me to/too Take a chance on my love I’ll keep waiting patiently Just a test of my strength But I can be weak if you need Bridge: Disappointment is hard to take Just be straight with me boy It’s not up to fate I’ll catch up with you one of these days ‘Cause there’s no way to forget No you just can’t fake it Half chorus: I can’t help it I keep reachin’ for you Don’t try to stop it I sure think you want me to/too Verse 3: I won’t let you tell me what I need And you won’t see me beg or ever plead Because I need to keep my dignity Suddenly the print flashes through my head I can’t bear to believe a word you said Why did you ever let me in your bed Last Chorus: ‘Cause I can’t help it I keep reachin’ for you Don’t try to stop it I sure think you want me to/too Take a chance on my love I’ll keep waiting patiently Just a test of my strength But I can be weak if you need I can be weak (x2) Oh (x3) Ending: I can’t help it I keep reachin’ for you

My Way 03:57
Verse 1: I used to dread just even going to school That stupid bus ride with all those fools Why did I ever let them make me cry It wasn’t worth my time Chorus: You’ll see me one day You won’t believe it I’ll have it my way And you can’t bring me down Verse 2: You used to tell me how to wear my hair Don’t wear that dress we don’t want people to stare If you get married it will all be fine It isn’t worth my time Chorus Bridge: Bitterness is the easy fallback plan I will avoid it if I can Goodbye sorrow About my fated plight I know this time I’ll get it right Verse 3: Now all that stops me is my own damn self I will admit and I’ll accept your help I won’t feel guilty now about my pride ‘Cause I know it’s mine Chorus (x2) Outtro: Oh ooh (x4) You’ll see me one day Oh ooh (x3) I’ll have it my way

Sister 03:34
Pre-chorus: You used to love me Oh where did you go My sister Oh my sister Verse 1: When I try to talk to you You don’t seem to listen When I try to hang with you You don’t want to be there It’s easy to convince yourself When you can’t stand to bear the pain You can’t wait for it to fade Pre-chorus Chorus: It’s not that I don’t like your friends It just seems like you lost yourself All I ever wanted was to make you happy Verse 2: I remember years ago When I watched with so much pride I wanted to be just like you Once I cried with tears of envy I miss what we used to have But now only resentment remains And I can’t wait for it to fade Pre-chorus and chorus Verse 3: Even though I try to act Like I have the strength of many It’s ripping me to shreds right now And I don’t know if I can bear it There’s gotta be a way back To the spirit in your heart I know remains And I have faith you will regain Pre-chorus Last chorus: It’s not that I don’t want to make amends It’s just hard when you’ve lost yourself All I ever wanted was to make you happy
