People can suprise you

I finally did what was needed
Finally took that baby step
And my parents finally know now
About the secret that I kept

I always thought about it
Figured it would be so far away
That this day would never come
And id keep pushing it away

But i guess people can surprise you
And love you for who you are
And how the person deep inside
Can stop hiding behind the bars

My mind always thought the worst
Afraid they won’t accept who I am
And I would feel so alone then
That they will never understand

I guess that shows you to never
Judge the people that you know
Because they can always have
Another side of them to show

But i guess people can surprise you
And love you for who you are
And how the person deep inside
Can stop hiding behind the bars

I never thought I would feel so free
In this world so soon
I was always afraid that I would be
Like the man on the moon

Something you keep trying to grab
But can only only look from afar
Like trying to make a wish and then
Trying to catch a falling star

But i guess people can surprise you
And love you for who you are
And how the person deep inside
Can stop hiding behind the bars

You put my mind at Ease

My world could come crashing down
No future left to live
But somehow you give me everything
That you could ever give

My life could feel so empty
Yet you find something there
Nothing that I can see in me
Like you pull it from nowhere

You hold me together
And help keep me sane
Somehow you keep me grounded
And protect me from all the pain

My body could be trembling
And yet you keep it still
You show the peace to me
What’s hiding behind the hill

I can feel so confused
Don’t know where to go
There you are to remind me
About what I should know

You hold me together
You help keep me sane
Somehow you keep me grounded
And protect me from all the pain

My heart can be hurting
But you find a way to heal
My mind can be racing
But you help get behind the wheel

You don’t know what you do to me
But you help to pass the days
I cannot put my finger on it
How you help in so many ways

How do you hold me together
How do you keep me sane
Somehow you keep me grounded
And protect me from all the pain

The role not taken

Things are always complicated
When living the life I’m in
Playing the role I’ve chosen
And the person hiding within

It’s hard to keep them separate
When they are practically the same
But I know down deep in side
That I’m the only one to blame

My fear and insecurities are
What’s keeping me from letting go
Need to stop worrying about it all
And who in the world will know

I’m tired of keeping a straight face
While inside the mask is turned
I need to stop living the lie
To see the role I have yearned

Be who you were meant to be

Why does it feel like sometimes
The life we live is not our own
Like we are not our own masters
we’re like a slave to our home

We always have this saying
Be who ever you want to be
why does it feel like sometimes
We hold back from what you see

It’s like we are never truly free
Like there’s a part we have to play
Always worried about how society feels
And less about how I want to live today

I know we shouldn’t feel this way
But it’s my burden that I bare
To care less about my own self
And more worried if they care

Tempted to look ahead

Always thought I would never find it
That one person to make me change
Who would send me to places
Where my heart would feel so strange

Where the hell did you come from
Where the hell have you been
so many times in this life of mine
I could have used you way back then

We only met a few weeks ago
But by Monday I knew you like a book
I was hoping I would be in each chapter
At the end I was tempted to look

I’m ready to skim the pages
life’s script I’m ready to view
I’m hoping there’s more between us
hope there’s more to me and you

The Eye of the Beholder

It seems to me that everyone
Has a part they’d like to hide
But it’s this part that makes us true
To the person we are inside

We cannot pick and choose
Who it is we want to be
We gotta accept every piece of us
Even the flaws we’re afraid to see

Sometimes the piece you try to hide
Is what someone has been looking for
So open yourself up to the world
And see what life has in store

It’s time for you to be yourself
No more hiding behind your flaws
The world could be so different
If you weren’t so quick to withdraw

So put yourself out there
You might be suprised with what you’d find
You could find the only enemy
Is your own state of mind

 

So Much Better then a Trophy

Every time I’m with someone like you
I feel like i’m a trophy to your case
What must I do to make you learn to appreciate

I’m not just that person you can call
And take out when you can
I’m so much more then someone to hold your hand

I could be so much more than that
If you only took the time
But you’re not lucky enough to hold this heart of mine

I could be the person that would
Hold your heart in it’s place
But you never take the time to keep mine safe

Cause its never about what I can do
Or what you can do for me
It’s more about all that we can really be

I could be so much more than that
If you only took the time
But you’re not lucky enough to hold this heart of mine

If only you really knew
How to appreciate what is
Can our life and love truly be better then all of this

But now i am ending this
Time to take this trophy out your case
Cause I can do so much better than this place

I could be so much more than that
If you only took the time
But you’re not lucky enough to hold this heart of mine

I’ll keep going on

You thought you could end this voice
That I carry inside of me
That you could kill this dream I own
And make me who you want me to be
 
You thought you could break me down
And create a new mold of who I am
But you don’t have the power to
You don’t control this man
 
Cause i’m stronger and I push back
And you can’t break this soul
Nothing that you can do can stop me
Cause i’m on a roll
And I’ll keep going on
 
You can keep trying and trying
But i’m not backing down
So the more you push against me
The more i’ll stand my ground
 
When we find ourselves threatened
Like people want to change who we are
We find the strength we never knew we had
And something worth fighting for
 
Cause i’m stronger and I push back
And you can’t break this soul
Nothing that you can do can stop me
Cause i’m on a roll
and I’ll keep going on
 
Cause I won’t be the kind of person
Who you could change just like that
I stand my ground and I’m not afraid
to go ahead and push back
 
I know we all try to fit in
But sometimes we might lose our way
But I won’t ever let anyone make me feel
Like I have to change to fit in today
 
Cause i’m stronger and I push back
And you can’t break this soul
Nothing that you can do can stop me
Cause i’m on a roll
And I’ll keep going on
And I’ll keep going on

Let Go of the Reign

You ever meet those people
When you’re growing up
You’re just trying prove that
Who you are is good enough

Always fighting so hard
Trying to play by their rules
Doing what you can
So you dont look like a fool

But we need to quit fighting so hard
just to play their game
cause life’s so much better when
You let go of the reign

Why must we always change
Be something that were not
just to end up lost in the crowd
another one forgot

Cause when you change yourself
Just to fit into their game
You end up losing everything
just to become one so plain

So we need to quit fighting so hard
just to play their game
cause life’s so much better when
You let go of the reign

Life’s so much better
When you stop trying to fit in
Cause conformity is a game that
No one ever wins

It’s always best to stand out
instead of changing who you are
so don’t you ever let anyone
Change what your living for

So we need to quit fighting so hard
just to play their game
cause life’s so much better when
You let go of the reign

Hidden Treasure

You might feel so overlooked
Like you stay on the shelf for way to long
Never finding someone to take you home
Never feeling like you belong

You’ve been pushed aside and try to bounce back
But all you want is a place to stay
One place that you can really call a home
Will that ever happen to someone like me
you say

I could be the hidden treasure
I am the one everyone just pushes aside
Why were they so quick to pass me over
They never realized what they found

Why does it always feel like
No matter how much I try to act
I try to turn myself into what they want
They always return to put me back

I can be so much more
If they only took the time
There’s so much hiding behind
What I think they want to find

I could be the hidden treasure
I am the one everyone just pushes aside
Why were they so quick to pass me over
They never realized what they found

We are always feeling like we are nothing
Like we’re just part of love’s clearance bin
Never knowing if love will find us
Making us feel like what could have been

But then you found the hidden treasure
When no one ever took the time
But you knew what I could always be
And you saw who I was inside

You said I was the one that made you feel lucky
I was the one just wanting to shine
And you felt so lucky to have found me
I’m so lucky to call you mine

No longer will I feel like
Some treasure never seen
Cause now i finally realized
what truly love really means

Its the hidden treasure
we someday hope to find
and now that day has come
now that you’re love is mine

Time to Change the Rules

Inspired by tragedies such as Las Vegas and Pulse shootings, and LA, Texas, and Florida hurricanes!

This world’s beginning to feel less like home
Like we’re living in our own version of hell
So much pain and so much destruction
That is making us all feel so unwell

How many more lives must be taken
Why must life get so real
How many fates must be stripped
Till we find a way to heal

It’s time to change the game we’re playing
It’s time to change the rules we obey
Cause no one comes out a winner
In this game of life we play

So let’s throw out the rulebook
Let’s try to start anew
So many ways it could be better
If we only changed the things we thought we knew

Here’s to a better future
After we wipe the slate clean
Hope we some how find the cure
After we change our old routine

Listen to Her

So many times when youre a kid
When youre trying to figure out right or wrong
As you are going through your days
Just trying to find a place where you belong

You might run home from a day at school
With a question on your mind
And your mom will sit down to talk with you
And answer the question you have inside

You’ve gotta listen to her
Cause what she says is true
No one loves you better
No one better then you

Then when you get alittle older
But barely out your teens
You might meet the one for you
And you wonder what true love means

So you make your way back to your mother
Cause she always has your best at heart
So you sit back down to talk with her
Waiting for her knowledge shes gonna impart

You’ve gotta listen to her
Cause what she says is true
No one loves you better
No one better then you

Now years have gone by so fast
You’ve listened to every word she said
But life’s took a turn for the worst
And shes lying in some hospital bed

So many memories that you’ve made
Yet life has gotten too real
But she leans in to tell you
About how she really feels

Now you’ve gotta listen to her
Cause what she says is true
No one loves you better
No one better then you

Just listen to her….

Just listen to her…

Tonight it’s You and Me

So many nights tossing and turning
With a hunger I can’t fill
So I go out to hit the town
My heart barely holding the wheel

As I walk in you catch my eye
Unsure of my next move
Should I take you home tonight with me
Or Should I wait for love

Should I wait for love

I’ve been needing someone beside me
I don’t want to be alone
So let’s leave this crazy place behind us
And head back home

Cause tonight its me and you

But so many feelings are back again
After all is said and done
After all that was just a quick night of fun

What makes love so hard to find
When there’s so much to give
If only the choices that we make
Reflect just how we’d love to live

We come across so many people
So many ways to connect
But so few of them really last
Past the other person’s bed

Now i’ve come across someone like you
Who knew this would happen to me
I never knew where you came from
Can this really be?

I’ve been needing someone beside me
I don’t want to be alone
So let’s leave this crazy place behind us
And head back home

Cause tonight it’s me and you

So many people fighting for love
But we made it to this place
I’ve known it was you and me
Since the day we stood face to face

We’ve been through hell and back
But our love was worth the fight
Who knew I would find someone like you
Who made love feel so right

I’ve been needing someone beside me
But I’m no longer alone
So let’s leave this crazy place behind us
And go make that place our home

Cause tonight it’s me and you
It will always be me and you
