Track Name: More To Me Than Meets The Eye
MORE TO ME THAN MEETS THE EYE


I see her, I see her, I’ll bet she has my key now
Sleeps on my side of the bed, I pity her
And when she’s older and so much bolder
Will you outgrow her too
Another eight years down the line
She’ll just be entering her prime

But don’t you worry baby
I hate me more than I hate you
There was a time when I wondered
What the hell would I do
It’s time to stop pretending, it’s time to see things as they are
Just one thing

What will you do when your beauty’s just a memory
What will you say when there’s no one left to play with
Did you think I’d just crawl under a stone, to bleed on my own
There’s more to me than meets the eye

I taste you, I smell you, I wash but how you linger
I bet you still remember how I touched you with my fingers
And from the outside, I see the downside
I struggled hard to climb
I’m sorry to go on like this
It’s just I like to reminisce

Don’t wanna be another angry woman but I can’t hold my tongue
Gotta get it all off my chest while I’m still young
Don’t wanna get too sentimental sometimes I think I’m going … mental
You made a ball of me it’s time to take my penalty

Love me, love me not, love me
More to me than meets the eye
Did you ever love me?
Love me, love me not, love me
More to me than meets the eye
Did you love me?
Track Name: A Better Place To Be
A BETTER PLACE TO BE

And so, to bed, again, I’m waiting in the dark
It’s my turn but no one’s there
I hear the sound of rain my senses bring me round
Face to face, with myself

I believe, I embrace, I keep looking for something
Try to remember, keep me in mind
Coz it’s about you, it’s about me, it’s about everything
We thought we had to be
So tell me if you find, a better place to be

Someday I’ll wake to find, the dream I had inside
Leaves me empty, leaves me dry

I believe, I embrace, I keep looking for something
Try to remember, keep me in mind
Coz it’s about you, it’s about me, it’s about everything
We thought we had to be
Just tell me if you find, a better place to be

In a moment of confusion, I can feel it
The danger in a strangers kiss
I used to be the one you’d miss
But now I know there’s no solution, I want more than enough

It’s about you, it’s about me, it’s about everything
We thought we had to be
Just tell me if you find, a better place to be
Track Name: No One Tells You
NO ONE TELLS YOU

Do you wanna be happy, do you wanna be sad?
Do I wanna be everything that you never had
I hear you calling, I hear you scream
I can hear everything you say but I don’t know what it means

Peel me off the ceiling scrape me off the walls
Open the door & tell me you’re still waiting

No one tells you how it’s gonna be
All of you & only half of me
Do you dream of ever after, how much would you sacrifice
No one tells you how it’s gonna be

Did you think I was easy, did you think I’d care
Did you think I’d let you use me, would you even dare?
It’s in my breathing it’s in my mind
It’s in everything I do, I’m one of a kind

Peel me off the ceiling scrape me off the walls
Break down the door I’ll show you I’m not faking

You thought I’d be dedicated, (you know I’m not made to)
I’m sorry to let you down, ( I tried I’m not able)
I like it when you’re frustrated, (I know I can’t save you)
Perhaps you’ll keep coming around
I thought you’d be satisfied, I guess I misunderstood
I won’t wipe the tears you cry, tell me why I should
Track Name: Something I Already Gave You
SOMETHING I ALREADY GAVE YOU

I remember your smile I remember your eyes
Remember everything you told me
And I remember the lies that made me feel good
Told myself I’d misunderstood you

But I was losing myself, while I was out there looking for you
I know too well, you were never gonna give it up
You were never gonna give it up

Baby I know
I wanna hurt you so I guess that means I love you
Couldn’t bear to see me cry so you let me go
I gave you all me & left myself with nothing
Can’t stand to see her give you something I already gave you

Sometimes I speak your name but it don’t feel the same
Who’d have thought it would come to this
Now I can’t think of your smile or the colour of your eyes
The memory of you just brings me down

When morning comes around I find myself alone
I found your favourite sweater & it chilled me to the bone
Now don’t misunderstand me I ain’t tangled up in blue
I’ll find another shade that don’t include you
Track Name: What You Are
WHAT YOU ARE

Gave myself to a stranger on New Years Day
Not emotionally but in every other way
She told me, get what you can in this life
It may not be as good in the next
I may just take her medicine & pray I don’t choke on the side effects

What you are & what you’ll be
Are not the same, just wait & see
Try to know how not to be
All of the things you hate in me

It’s a sacrifice everything, is what they say
But I’m afraid to let you go, just so you know
But I won’t give myself to you after all that we’ve been through
And I can’t stand to see you cry, don’t wanna be your alibi

Don’t ask me when, don’t ask me why
Don’t ask me where, don’t watch me cry
You tried so hard, (don’t you ever wonder why)
I wonder why
You shouldn’t dare, you shouldn’t ask me
You know I’ll tell you just to set you free
I know that this is killing you, I’m scared cos’ I know what to do
Track Name: You Can't Stop The River
YOU CAN’T STOP THE RIVER

Another year has gone
It’s not easy but you carry on
Remember how it feels
To keep the road under your wheels

You think you can leave it behind you
But you should know better than that

Oh you can’t stop the river
And you can’t take anymore
And you can’t keep the wolf from your door

You’re trying to run too far
But remember this is who you are
And all the things that you adore
You can’t touch them anymore

You think that nobody will find you
But you should know better than that

Oh you can’t stop the river
And you can’t take anymore
And you can’t keep the wolf from your door

Where have you been, do you know?
In a dream, time to let it go, (stop wishing & waiting)
Where’s your head? In the clouds
Where are you going now?

You say that you know, I don’t think so

Oh you can’t stop the river
And you can’t take anymore
And you can’t keep the wolf

No you can’t stop the river
And you can’t settle the score
No you can’t stop the river
And you can’t run forever
No you can’t stop the river
