Heart on the Line

Love can be so crazy at times
It can make us feel so completely lost
Is this the best life for me
Or am I settling for what I want

People may come into our lives
But sometimes we grab just to feel
How do we know when the situations right
How do we know when it’s real

How can I put my heart on the line
How can it be attached to another
Is it bad for me to feel like this
When it’s not the one I call my lover

I’ve never been in this situation
My hearts never been torn in two
But i’m finding myself at the crossroads
And I’m not sure what i’m going to do

Cause you walked into this life of mine
Why must you make me feel this way
I wish that I could let these feeling go
But part of me wishes you would stay

How can I put my heart on the line
How can it be attached to another
Is it bad for me to feel like this
When it’s not the one I call my lover

Not sure which way my heart will fall
Is the past where it’s going to be
Will my life find a new path to walk
Or will it be full of uncertainty

How can I put my heart on the line
I’m not the only one that hurts
Is it worth all the pain it gives
When dealing with the matter of my heart

How can I put my heart
How can I put your heart
How can I put this love
On the line

Top of the Line

(I felt a Frank Sinatra vibe from this.)

There’s so many people to meet
But what’s the point of saying hello
When your heart just isn’t in it
There’s no way love can grow

Cause they’re not the one I want
Even if they think i’m their match
No matter what they do
Our love just won’t last

They might think i’m
the best of the best
Top of the line
Today’s biggest catch
World’s rarest find

But nothing
And I mean nothing

Matters to how I rate to you

Cause when the love isn’t true
No matter how hard we fight
You can’t try to force it
Cause it just ain’t right

We just end up wasting time
Trying so hard to make it work
But their’s no future in it
When there’s not any sparks

They might think i’m
The best of the best
Top of the line
Today’s biggest catch
World’s rarest find

But nothing
And I mean nothing

Matters to how I rate to you

But now that I found you
There’s no more wasting time
Cause you’re the one I been
So eager to find

Cause you are the best thing
That could have ever happened to me
And now that we’re together
You don’t know what you’ve done to me

You make me feel like
The best of the best
Top of the line
Today’s biggest catch
World’s rarest find

And nothing
And I mean nothing

Matters to how much I adore, someone like you

The Fear of Letting Go

How does one let someone new in
That could turn their life around
When the life that they always lived
Is repeating the same ole song

When you’re living for yourself
Everything comes down to you
But when your life gets turn around
You never know what you’ll do

My heart keeps wanting to feel
But I grab it before it does
So afraid to see what my life will be
Cause I want to keep it like it was
So I pull it back in, so I pull it back in…

I know that might sound selfish
To want to keep my life like it is
But this is the only life I know
Can it really be better then this

And fear has it’s way with us
We become so afraid of the change
But change can make things so much better
Even if at first, it might feel strange

My heart keeps wanting to feel
But I grab it before it does
So afraid to see what my life will be
Cause I want to keep it like it was
So I pull it back in, so I pull it back in…

Then you walked into this life of mine
Can I trust you with my heart
Cause I’m so afraid of how my life will be
If our love was ever torn apart

Cause fear has a way of binding us
To the life we’ve always lived
Never letting us learn to experience
No matter how much someones willing to give

But sometimes we need to let our heart go
Stop grabbing it before it feels
Because it might lead our life down the path
Where the love is real
So for once I shall let go….So for once I shall let go

For once I shall….. let go….

Time Stands Still

On my way heading home
Just like any other night
Riding down the road
Nothing else in sight

Then suddenly that all changes
When i’m struck from behind
So many things are flying around me
Like the thoughts in my mind

Then time stood still
My life flashed before my eyes
I don’t know whats coming next
Or whats going on inside

So many things in our lives
Can come at us so unexpected
What will happen to me tomorrow
Will my life change it’s direction

When life leads you down troubled roads
You must always look for that silver lining
Never knowing where that road may lead
Or what you might one day find

When time stands still
And your life flashes before my eyes
You don’t know whats coming next
Or what’s going on inside

But every road that we go down
Whether it’s good or it’s bad
Proves just what we’re capable of
And to appreciate everything we have

Remember each and every heartache
Every pain that you go through
Will one day lead you to your future
With the better part of you

The day when time stands still
And your whole life flashes before your eyes
You never know what will happen next
Or whats this feeling you have inside

So much can happen in an instant
Your whole life could be turned upside down
But sometimes the happiest beginnings
Are when you turn your whole life around

That moment when
Time stands still…

Pushing and Pulling

My heart keeps trying to pull away
Afraid of what it might attract
What if I’m surrounded by so much pain
And thats all that comes back

I try so hard to cover up
To keep everything from coming in
Then you walk into my life
And all these feelings begin

I keep pushing and pulling
Why am I trying so hard to get away
Why does my head want to leave
But my heart want to stay

Never have I felt this way
No one ever made feel so unsure
What about you drives me crazy
Or maybe your love’s the cure

Your hearts attracting me
And I’m so afraid to just let go
When there’s so much on my mind
That I just do not know

I keep pushing and pulling
Why am I trying so hard to get away
Why does my head want to leave
But my heart want to stay

I keep trying so hard to walk away
Cause I’m not sure about the two of us
Is this just a fling
Or is this truly love

There’s only one way for me to tell
And that’s for my give it a try
But it’s a risk worth taking
Before I tell you goodbye

I was pushing and pulling
Why was I trying so hard to get away
My head wanted to leave
But my heart chose to stay
But my heart chose to stay

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
But I’m the one that everyone pushes aside
Why were they so quick to pass me over
I guess they didn’t realize 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
But I’m the one that everyone pushes aside
Why were they so quick to pass me over
I guess they didn’t realize what they found

We always feeling like we’re 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

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

Listen to Her

So many times when youre a kid
When youre trying to figure out right or wrong
As you’re 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 got 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…
