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

 

Stand your Ground or Back Away

There times when you should stand your ground
And there times when you should back away
But hate should never be your motivation
Cause love is what’s here to stay

When you’re out there fighting for something
When you feel like something just ain’t right
There are times in this world we live in
That shouldn’t be won with a fight

Everybody has their own reasons
For standing up for what they believe in
But I think we have to look at our reasons why
Cause there’s so much more we’re needing

There’s still so much hope to be found
There’s still so many walls to tear down
Yet we keep putting more and more walls up
Just to prove we’re the ones that are tough

But there’s so much pain around us
And we never give enough time to heal
If only we’d stop and take the time
We could learn how another feels

So many people look at what makes us different
Never noticing how much we are alike
If we ever took a chance to find common ground
We would find one less day to pick a fight

Remember the next person you raise your fist too
Might be the one that could save you when you need a hand
So remove the fear that blinds your eyes
And learn how to be the better man

In Another’s Shoes

If you ever had the chance to live
In someone else’s shoes
Would you even take the chance
What do you have to lose

Well let me tell you right now
About how everything could change
How if you ever find your way back
You whole life might seem strange

Is it worth living like someone else
Just to have a little fun
When the moment you come back home
You realize everything is gone

What if the life you’ve been wanting
Is the life you never had to find
Only to go out searching for
A dream you’d rather leave behind

What if all the people that you love
Aren’t around when you come on home
Will you be able to keep on living
Even though you’re left alone

Is it worth living like someone else
Just to have a little fun
When the moment you come back home
You realize everything is gone

So we need to appreciate what is
Nothing’s better then what we’re given
Just have to do the best we can
And just keep on living

So don’t you forget to remember
Before you go out on your search
Don’t go looking for something else
Cause there’s always a catch

When you go out to find something
That you feel you’re own life lacks
You might not recognize anything
Once you find your way back

Home…….

If I Were Your Man (I Were a Boy Parody)

If I were your man
Even just for a day
I’d roll outta bed in the morning
And cook you what you wanted and go
Hang out with my friends
And come home to you
Never kicked it with anyone else
So I’ll never be confronted for it
i’d prefer being with you

If I were your man
I think you would understand
How it feels to be loved by someone
I swear i’d be the better man
I’d listen to you
Cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted
Cause he’s taking you for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

If I were your man
I would turn off my phone
Tell everyone it’s broken
So you never feel like you’re alone
I’d always put us first
And make the rules as we go
Cause you know that I’ll be faithful
Waiting for me to come home
To come home

If I were your man
I think you would understand
How it feels to love someone
I swear I’d be the better man
I’d listen to you
Cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted
Cause he’s taken you for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

It’s alittle to late for you to tell me
Say it’s just a mistake
That you could come to me like that
If you thought I would wait for you
You thought wrong

But you’re just alone
You never understood
Yea you don’t understand
How it feels to love someone somday
You wish you were with a better man
You never listened to me
You don’t care how I hurt
Until you lose the one you had
Cause he was taking you for granted
And everything you had was destroyed

Now you’re just alone

The Wish

Can I ask you now
What’s left on your list
i’ll try to do what I can
You just have to make the wish

I can give you all the things
That you’ve ever desired
All you’ve gotta go do is name them
And they’ll be acquired

If you wanted all the riches
I can give you plenty of gold
Or if you wanted endless beauty
I’d make sure you never grow old

But don’t forget to remember
Wishes don’t always work out
Cause sometimes we find that
There’s so much we can do without

Sometimes the mightiest wishes
Can stop ourselves from learning
About who we are and what we can do
And what exactly we are yearning

So I’ll ask you once again
What’s last on your list
I’ll try to do what I can
You just have to make the wish

Now here you are standing
Just the same as you were
As if the wish never passed
Like an unanswered prayer

I’m sorry this happened
I’m not sure what went wrong
Or maybe this is exactly
What you wanted all along

So I’ll ask you one last time
Did you get everything you wanted
And I’ll be so ecstatic to hear you say
No just everything I needed

The Light to banish the Darkness

(Inspired by Rumple and Belle)

There was a time when all I saw
Was the darkness around my heart
Never expecting to find the light
With so much pain tearing me apart

I’ve been facing my fears for so long
With no one there to have my back
Who knew life would turn out this way
When my hearts always under attack

Till you came in and shown the way
You brought light to the darkest soul
I never expected that you would stay
That you would fill this empty hole

But you came into this life of mine
And you promised you’d never leave
Why was I always so scared to admit
That I carry my heart on my sleeve

My burdens been weighting me down
Another chip in this armor of mine
Who knew you could fix me up
Who knew you could make me shine

What have you done to someone like me
How could you heal me with ease
I thought I would be forever broken
And you’d be so quick to leave

But you stayed with me till the end
Our love was timeless as can be
You helped push back the darkness
And helped find the light inside of me

Karaoke

I’m getting up in front of the crowd
Standing in the spotlight
Singing the words on the screen
On a busy Wednesday night

The first time I got on up on that stage
My mind was racing and I was so scared
Felt my heart was beating out of my chest
And the sweat was dripping from my head

But things soon got calmer
And my heart slowed on down
The stage felt so natural to me
Like I was in my own little town

The words became easier to sing
As I sang with the melodies
The night started feeling better
Since the fun came to me with ease

Who knew i’d found myself
A place where I would belong
I never thought I could be here
Who knew I was this strong

What was once filled with fear
Has become something more
The music has become a part of me
Gives me strength I was looking for

I deserve better

Inspired by a friends experience…

Even when my friends kept telling me
About all the shit that he did
I kept telling them that’s okay
Even with all the trust he undid

Everyone that we come across
Has a flaw attached to their name
That’s just the price we pay
When we’re playing this game

I could have settle with what I had
And tell myself that it didn’t matter
But as I tell myself it wasn’t that bad
I realize that I deserve so much better

You keep trying to apologize
Saying I’m so sorry boo
But you can tell that to somebody else
Someone that who

Somebody that will take all your crap
And learn to accept all your faults
But the person you see in front of you
Isn’t the one that you want

I could have settle with what I had
And tell myself that it didn’t matter
But as I tell myself it wasn’t that bad
I realize that I deserve so much better

I could have accepted all the pain
No matter how much it hurt
Put it all up to experience
Cause it only strengthens my heart

But I’ve finally come to realize
That’s not how love goes
Cause I’m the only one with answers
Cause i’m the only one that knows

So glad I didn’t settle for what I had
Cause I know how much I matter
I should have listened to how it was bad
And I realized I demand so much better
