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

Steel Cannot Bend

Some of those days
You might feel so broken inside
Like you’re always the one
That has to go run and hide

People try to tear you down
Cause another crack full of doubt
You try to stand your ground
But you’re too scared to scream and shout

But the hammer that they use
Is the same that forges steel
And you’ve gotta stand up to them
Cause no one else will

And this steel cannot bend

So you’ve gotta turn the tables
Turn that pain into strength
You’ll find your will’s much stronger
Cause this steel cannot bend

When your drive fuels the fire
That’s hiding deep inside of you
You will find yourself unbreakable
No matter what you’re put through

Cause the hammer that they use
Is the same that forges steel
And you’ve gotta stand up to them
Cause no one else will

And this steel cannot bend

So it’s time to shift that power
To strengthen what they tried to break
They’ll learn what they tried to do
Will be the their last mistake

Cause the hammer that they use
Is the same that forges steel
And you’ve gotta stand up to them
Cause no one else will
But you

And this steel will not bend

Anymore

Fly Away

For so long i’ve had my life planned out
Every path was written down
I’ve never been good with suprises
My control kept me tightly wound

Then you came in and knocked me off my feet
I’ve never felt like this before
Who am I when you’re around me
I thought control was something i’d fight for

But you make me want to get up and fly away
To where ever life might take us
Who knew how free your love could make me feel
When losing control used to be tough

Why was I always so tighly wound
Why was I so afraid to just let go
When there’s so much out in this world
So many things i’ve yet to know

It’s funny how much my life could change
And how much i’m not scared that it might
I’ve always thought I had everything planned
Till you proved that wasn’t right

But you make me want to get up and fly away
To where ever life might take us
Who knew how free your love could make me feel
When losing control used to be tough

I never thought I could be like this
Living life without the chains
But I’ve come to learn just how much
Happiness remains

When you learn to live day by day
Without anything planned out
Then you finally get the chance to see
What living’s all about

I’m so ready to get up and fly away
To wherever life might take us
Who knew how free your love could make me feel
When losing control used to be tough

So let’s get away
Let’s fly away
We’ll be back someday

How you Left Me

I spent so many lonely nights
Alone in my bed
Trying to forget about the past
Get you out my head

You’ve left such a big hole when
You left me that day
Not sure how I feel right now
If you came back here today

But if you came back again
I guess one last time couldn’t hurt
With everything going on in my life
Could it get any worse

Then how you left me

Cause one more night alone with you
Think of all the fun we could have
But is that night really worth having
If i’m reminded of what I had

Reminded of what was lost
All that pain you threw my way
I know you’re here for just one night
But I still wish you would stay

Just one more night

But with everything going on
Could it get any worse

Then how you left me

Just one night would be like heaven
After all the hell you put me through
Cause since the day you left me
Loneliness is all I knew

But for once I want to be the one
That ends this game we play
I want to be the one that says goodbye
Cause I don’t want you to stay
Anymore

So if you came back again
It’s my last time to hurt
Cause after everything i’ve faced
I know how much I am worth

Cause i’m worth so much more

Then how you left me

 

Come On and Shake Me

You ever have those feelings
Like your trapped in cement
Looking for the way out but
You can barely make a dent

Like you can’t move forward
And there’s no way back
But how can I get out of here
When i’m frozen in my tracks

Come on and shake me, shake me
From the fear that’s got a hold on me
Cause i’ve been stuck here for forever
And it’s time to break free

So come on over and shake me free

Sometime’s you need someone
To be there to lend a hand
Cause some things you can’t get past
Without the help of a friend

I’ve been stuck in this place
I’ve been stuck here way too long
So much thoughts going through my head
Wondering if help would come along

Come on and shake me, shake me
From the fear that’s got a hold on me
Cause i’ve been stuck here for forever
And it’s time to break free

So come on over and shake me free

I tried so hard to fake it
Thinking I could do it on my own
But how could you move forward
When you’re trapped in stone

But now i’ve found my way out
So lucky you came along
I wasn’t sure how long I could fake
Trying to be strong

Till you shook me, shook me
From the fear that had it’s hold on me
Cause I’ve been stuck there for forever
But I finally broke free

So glad you came and shook me free

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

Not Like the Movie

I’ve seen my share of movies
And I’ve heard my share of songs
But I don’t want to live my own life
Like a movie or a song

Those stories might seem truthful
Like they can happen to anyone
But nothing ever happens like that
After all is said and done

We can get so lost in the fantasies
In the same ole cliche
Waste our life trying to figure out
Which role we’re born to play

Am I still the leading role
Is the question we always ask
Will I ever find love
Or happiness that lasts

But we have to realize
No matter what we think
Our life could change so fast
In one sudden blink

We can get so lost in the fantasies
In the same ole cliche
Waste our life trying to figure out
Which role we’re born to play

But our role is never constant
That’s one thing we have to know
You have to be ready for
Where your life might go

Cause unlike all the stories
That you might watch or hear
The change is coming fast
No matter how strong you fear

We need to get past all the fantasies
Step away from the cliche
So we can learn how to figure out
Who we might be today
