Symphony

We each have our own separate songs
Lyrics reflecting the life that we’ve been living
But some stories might sound a little empty
If we don’t take a moment to sit and listen

So many times we may go through life
Listening to the sounds our heart plays
But if we listen to people all around us
There’s so much to the story we didn’t say

I was alone, my voice was just my own
But now my life it feels like a symphony
Who knew love could bring music to these ears
There’s so much more to life I couldn’t see
Cause now i’m living oh i’m living
Living life like it’s a symphony

Cause every person that you come across
Plays another tune in your heart
But if you blend it all together
It becomes your favorite work of art

Separate we might sound like noise
But together we speak in harmony
And we have a way of bringing out
Each other’s best qualities

I was alone, my voice was just my own
But now my life it feels like a symphony
Who knew love could bring music to these ears
There’s so much more to life I couldn’t see
Cause now i’m living oh i’m living
Living life like it’s a symphony

Now i’m starting to pick up on things
Seeing everything in a different light
How everyone i’ve come across in my life
Was the reason my life turned out right

For so long I was barely listening
Only hearing the song playing inside
But now my ears have tuned into
All the reasons why

I was alone, my voice was just my own
But now my life it feels like a symphony
Who knew love could bring music to these ears
There’s so much more to life I couldn’t see
Cause now i’m living oh i’m living
Living life like it’s a symphony

Happily Ever After

Another day, Another castle
Another cell I can’t escape from
Another dream I wish would come true
Is my hero ever gonna come?

We all know the story
We’ve grew up on this tale
A happily ever after
Is the story we know so well

But happily ever afters
Aren’t always what they seem
Sometimes life’s happiest endings are when
We learn how to break free

Sometimes our own prisons
Are the one’s we’ve created ourselves
And we think our only savior
Is the only one willing to help

But why must we wait
For our own white knight
When there’s a hero inside each of us
If we aren’t afraid to stand up and fight

Cause happily ever afters
Aren’t always what they seem
Sometimes life’s happiest endings are when
We learn how to break free

Sometimes we become so blinded
When we keep wishing upon a star
Maybe our happily ever after
Was never that far

What if the hero you were looking for
Was closer then you realized
And the only dragon to be slain
Was the one hiding deep inside

Cause happily ever afters
Aren’t always what they seem
Sometimes life’s happiest endings
Are when we learn how to break free
By ourselves

The Fears That Bind

If you look into these eyes
You’d never see what I see
Hiding behind the mask I wear
Can feel so natural to me

We all may feel this way sometimes
But then we forget which is real
How do I tell the difference?
How do I know which way I feel?

So many people think they know
What lies behind this face
But the truth is they’ll never know
What my heart wants to say

Why must it be so easy
To hide behind this mask
Then to accept who we truly are
And scared to say, if asked

I know sometimes the role we chose
We feel like we made the choice
Till we find out that our own fears
Somehow compromised our voice

But one day we must take the risk
I know it’s scary to take that chance
But that’s the only way to find out
If they can accept who I am

Time to Spread My Wings

I’m rushing to the airport
Packed everything i’ve ever owned
Don’t know where I’m going
Or if i’ll ever come back home

I know i’ve been around this town
And I know every place by name
But how am I supposed to grow up when
Every night is the same

So now it’s time for me to do this
It’s time for me to spread these wings
Who know’s what will happen next for me
What my future will bring

But it’s time to spread these wings

Now i’m sitting in the chair
Waiting for them to call my name
But no matter what happen’s next
I’ll be the only one to blame

Then I finally get that call
And I grab my bags to walk away
I know it’s best for me leave right now
Then to stay here another day

So now it’s time for me to do this
It’s time for me to spread these wings
Who know’s what will happen next for me
What my future will bring

But it’s time to spread these wings

As i’m sitting patiently in my seat
I hear the pilot begin to talk
I think about everything that I left
And the strength it took to walk

I could have stayed back home
Where every one knew my name
But it’s time for me to move on
Where every night’s not the same

So now it’s time for me to do this
It’s time for me to spread these wings
Who know’s what will happen next for me
What my future will bring

But it’s time to spread these wings

There’s a Fine Line

We’ve all been in this situation
We’ve all played that old game
And no matter where love takes us
The rules are always the same

But this game is never easy and you
Sometimes feel you’re playing with a cheat
Should you try to make it work for you
Or is this all he’ll ever be

There’s a fine line between staying
Or deciding to walk away
Should I fight to be happy
Or leave to love another day

Cause there’s a fine fine line
But which way should I go?

I know love is never gonna be easy
Sometimes you’ve got to risk it all
But is this a game worth playing
When you think it’s bound to fall

I could try my best to make it work
I could lay out all my cards
But if it was meant to work out in the end
Would it really be this hard

There’s a fine line between staying
Or deciding to walk away
Should I fight to be happy
Or leave to love another day

Cause there’s a fine fine line
But which way should I go?

Now it’s time for me to make the choice
Cause my heart can’t sit around and wait
Should I leave or should I fight to stay
What’s going to be my fate

No matter where life’s takes me
I know I took the higher road
Cause I’ve learned from all my mistakes
And only I know where this goes

There’s a fine line between staying
Or deciding to walk away
Should I fight to be happy
Or leave to love another day

Cause there’s a fine fine line
And i’m the only one who knows…

You Can’t Please Everyone

I’m going out tonight
Look at everybody stare
Am I what you wanted
Should I even care?

Should I change who I am?
Just to be what you want
But then would they even love
Who I really am

Remember you can’t please everyone
So i’ve gotta stop trying
Cause look at all the time that was wasted
When I could have been living
And I can’t, can’t, can’t
No I can’t please everyone

Now i’m on the dance floor
Listening to music play
I stopped listening to the words
All the words that they say

Then you come and approach me
As the music beings to die
Should I listen to the words you say
When their covered with lies

Remember you can’t please everyone
So i’ve gotta stop trying
Cause look at all the time that was wasted
When I could have been living
And I can’t, can’t, can’t
No I can’t please everyone

Everyone tries to make the mold
Of what they expect me to be
I tried so hard to be everything they want
But they just can’t seem to see

They don’t see how i’m changing
My view of the world we live
And the power they have on me
Is not something i’m willing to give

Cause I can’t please everyone
And now that i’ve stopped trying
I took back all the time i’ve wasted
And learned to focus on living
Cause I can’t, can’t, can’t
No I can’t please everyone
But I can please myself

Ink

There’s so many stories
That I can’t even tell
If only there’d be some way
For you to know me well

When the words i wanna say
Can’t escape my mouth
And you really want to
Figure me out

Just look at the story
Etched upon my skin
And you’ll know who I am
And know where I’ve been

Cause with every drop
Of ink released
That’s a new story
Inside of me
And it never runs dry
No it never runs dry

Here’s the house
That I grew up in
And my nickname
When I was a kid

Here’s to the quote
That i’ll never forget
And there’s the love
That i’ll carry with

Cause with every drop
Of ink released
That’s a new story
Inside of me
And it never runs dry
And it never runs dry

And there’s still so much
So much left to be told
With every journey that I take
Another story to unfold

Who knows what may come
Who knows where I may go
But I know whereever life takes me
On my skin it will show

Cause with every drop
Of ink released
That’s a new story
Inside of me
And it never runs dry
And it never runs dry
