FOR ALL THAT YOU WANT

I can’t sit and wait for you to say,

If there’s room inside your heart,

I’m not used to playin’ loves silly games,

Turn me down or let me start,

You have to believe I’ll make things right,

Open your arms, give up the fight,

CHORUS

For all that you want,

For all that you’re feeling,

There’s a place where you can go,

For all that you need

I will be waiting to be your life, your Hero,

Now if you decide to run and hide,

It’s only you you’re cheating,

The key’s in your hand, you must understand,

I won’t be defeated no,

I really believe this goal’s in sight,

Open your arms let me see your light,

REPEAT CHORUS

I’m sure that you’ve heard this before so many times,

Girl, look inside my heart and you will find,

I’ll be your life your Hero,

I’ll be the one to hold you,

I’ll never let you go,

I’ll always understand you baby,

To be your life your hero

REPEAT CHORUS x 2

ARMS AROUND ME

Out of the water, feeling down, feeling cold

Into the fire, to a world I’d never known

God I’m so tired, been a long long road to here

But God it’s been worth it, when I feel your body near

With your arms around me, love surrounds me ever by my side

With your arms you hold me, trust and show me all I feel tonight

All this time that I’ve been searching

All this time that I’ve been hurting

It heals, when I’m in your arms each night

Running away from, all the love I never knew oh no

Only to fall, into the arms of someone true, yeah

How I never noticed, I’ve been searching for so long

Waiting to find someone to make me feel this strong

With your arms around me, love surrounds me ever by my side

With your arms you hold me, trust and show me all I feel tonight

All this time that I’ve been searching

All this time that I’ve been hurting

It heals, when I’m in your arms each night

LIE TO ME

So this is the last time we will be standing wall to wall,

We were right to surrender,

Soon we can walk through different doors,

With a million reasons just to be apart,

’til the morning comes and before the loneliness starts will you just,

Lie to me,

Whisper the words that you don’t mean,

Share with me the love that you’ll never feel,

Baby lie to me,

Show me the way we’ll never be,

and the tenderness that I’ll never see,

Baby lie to me,

I know what you’re thinking but I don’t believe we could go on,

I know the feeling,

The feeling inside when love has gone,

Now the times upon us only pain can win,

Baby one last time before the loneliness begins will you just,

Lie to me,

Whisper the words that you don’t mean,

Share with me the love that you’ll never feel,

Baby lie to me,

Show me the way we’ll never be,

and the tenderness that I’ll never see,

Baby lie to me

FAST CAR

You’ve got me thinking ’bout tomorrow,

Although I’m living in today,

You’ve got me wishing I lived in another world,

Though in my home I wanna’ stay,

You’re tellin’ me you understand,

But you don’t really know now who I am or what I do,

You’re tellin’ me we’ll work it out,

Then all you do is kick and scream and shout,

What more can I say,

Fast car take me home,

To the place where I can breathe, where I feel strong,

Fast car take me back,

To the place where I’m free at last,

How did I let you come this far,

Why did I let you tear me down.

I should have known this from the start,

You turned a page without a sound,

You’re tellin’ me I’ve got to learn,

But your love has so many twists and turns I can’t find my way,

You’re tellin’ me it’s all a shame,

But now I feel this soul has got no name,

To you it’s all a game,

Fast car take me home,

To the place where I can breathe, where I feel strong,

Fast car take me back,

To the place where I’m free at last

STRONG ENOUGH

Watching as this storm goes by I can see a light,

A prisoner of my own design my hands are firmly tied,

I could just fade away and live a life unknown.

I could be somewhere else but now I’m headed home.

Stronger every day,

Stronger every night,

I’m holding out for peace,

But now I’m feeling stronger.

Walking from that sheltered world with nowhere left to hide

My naked soul is running free, my eyes are open wide

I’m searching for a higher ground to make myself complete

It’s only when you climb that mountain the world is at your feet

Stronger every day,

Stronger every night,

I’m holding out for peace,

But ready now to fight,

Life owes me nothing,

I have tasted everything,

But I can’t wait much longer now I’m feeling stronger

Stronger now,

I’m stronger now,

I’m stronger every single day

Repeat Chorus

ALL THAT I’VE GIVEN AWAY

The telephone it never rings when you want it to ring

And when it rings it’s never the voice you needed to hear

It’s funny how the radio sings the words you meant to say

And when you need a smile you only find a tear

I’m in deep regret

I’m trying to forget

But hope will never sleep while we’re apart

All that I’ve given, given away

Is all that I needed here tonight

The more that I try to, try to forget

Is the more this empty heart seems to fight

It fights for all that I’ve given away

The day it never foes too fast when you need it to pass

In every corner of the night loneliness sleeps

Though I’ll never hear the answers to the questions that I’ve asked

I often wonder how our future would have been

This deep regret makes it harder to accept

With love I paid the price from the heart

All that I’ve given, given away

Is all that I needed here tonight

The more that I try to, try to forget

Is the more this empty heart seems to fight

It fights for all that I’ve given away

When an overload of change has slowly turned you upside down

The pieces of your life fall all around you

And at times it’s hard to recognize the place you’ve always lived

Where’s the sun, where’s the sky, what is love, what is life, who am I?

Ohh who am I? I’m feeling now

All That I’ve given away, the song I believe in for today

All That I’ve given away, it’s everything I’m living for today

It’s all an empty heart seems to find

Repeat chorus

WONDERING

So there you go again turning love into a question,

It’s not so hard to say if this is for real or rejection,

Don’t make me promises, don’t make me decide,

Don’t beg forgiveness just try harder next time,

I know this love will start

Don’t keep me wondering, ’cause it’s hard enough to know,

Don’t keep me wondering, if you’ve turned cold,

We’ve got to work it out, whatever’s wrong we’ll make it right,

Don’t keep me wondering if your love is worth the fight

All alone still waiting, so glad I know that you’re worth the chasing,

Though I understand your reasons, I’ve never argued or fought with me feelings,

Don’t be protective, don’t keep changing your mind,

You use forgiveness as a way to buy time,

Don’t push aside a love you’ve never tried,

Try and see this through my eyes

REPEAT CHORUS

Wondering if anything will happen baby,

Wondering if this will turn out right

Wondering if dreams are dreams forever baby,

Wondering if love will ever come to life

REPEAT CHORUS

DON’T NEED A REASON

I know you’re still hurting and you’ll never forget,

But don’t wear your pain dear, don’t wear your regret,

You’ve escaped from the lies that he told you, you’ve escaped from deceit,

You stood alone until finally I found you,

Believe if you give love you’ll only receive,

You don’t need a reason to love me, you don’t need a reason to care,

When you wake in the morning you’ll find I’ll always be there,

You don’t need a reason to want me, you don’t need a reason to stay,

Just believe in yourself and you’ll find love somewhere out there,

I can see now you’re thinking if I’ll do the same,

If I’ll give you all of my heart then take it away,

You’re old enough to swallow a bad time and still breathe,

It’s time you unchained from the past,

All that I am is everything you need,

You don’t need a reason to love me, you don’t need a reason to care,

When you wake in the morning you’ll find I’ll always be there,

You don’t need a reason to want me, you don’t need a reason to stay,

Just believe in yourself and you’ll find love somewhere out there,

So hard to believe you’re the same girl that you used to be,

It’s painful to see you’re still hurting,

When all you need now is the love that lies inside me, me, me,

You don’t need a reason to love me, you don’t need a reason to care,

When you wake in the morning you’ll find I’ll always be there,

You don’t need a reason to want me, you don’t need a reason to stay,

Just believe in yourself and you’ll find love somewhere out there.

BEFORE YOU TURN AWAY

Take a look at all we have,

I believe it still could last,

We’ve always found our way before,

Never believed in closing doors,

I think the answer is deep in our hearts,

You think the answer is being apart,

So before you turn away from me,

Before your heart is running free,

There’s a million reasons you should stay,

Look around you baby now before you turn away,

Let me ask before you choose,

Is what you gain more than you’d lose,

We’ve worked so hard to get his far,

Only to find another start,

I think the answer is still unknown,

You think the answer is being alone,

So before you turn away from me,

Before your heart is running free,

There’s a million reasons you should stay,

Look around you baby now before you turn away,

I think the answer is deep in our hearts,

You think the answer is being apart,

So before you turn away from me,

Before your heart is running free,

There’s a million reasons you should stay,

Look around you baby now before you turn away

WALK

I thought that you would be the one to share my life,

I thought that you would be the one to stand here by my side,

I thought that you would be the lover I’d always dreamed of,

I thought that you would be the one to face and fight any storm,

What a fool I’ve been,

Nothing’s quite the way it seemed,

All I’ve lost is all I had and all I had I never found,

So walk right out of life,

Enjoy your independence and freedom,

How can you still be proud,

When you’ve broken your vow,

Just turn away don’t look back,

The love you promised taught me a lesson,

I know I’ll survive after you have walked out of my life,

I can’t believe behind your smile there lived a lie,

I can’t believe inside your heart our love had already died,

I can’t believe that I’ve been chasing something I’d never see,

I can’t believe I’ve been the reason for your choice to be free,

How I’ve lost my way,

How overnight feelings change,

‘after all this time you tell me you never felt the same way,

REPEAT CHORUS

Justify giving love that you never had,

Justify taking love when you never cared,

Though it’s over now, though it’s over now,

Love won’t deceive me again,

REPEAT CHORUS

NOTHING FEELS THE SAME

We took our love and tore it apart,

Shattered each and every corner of our hearts,

We walked away only to find,

The path that we had taken pointed back in time,

With open arms we started again,

Never knowing everyday what lied ahead,

Taking the time, the time to re-discover,

All that brought the two of us together,

So tell me why nothing feels the same,

Nothing feels the same as it did back then,

I’m asking why nothing feels the same,

Why’s it all like a dream you can’t remember,

Like a hope you can’t surrender,

Tell me why nothing feels the same,

We figured what we had was worth a try,

We’d look for words all day then talk all night,

Face to face, all our questions answered,

Needing then what we always just took for granted,

Now it’s hard to see the days when love was natural,

It’s so hard to see the way we’re both refusing now to ask the question,

REPEAT CHORUS

It seems impossible to be trying to solve this puzzle in a day,

This fight has just begun and I’ll be fighting baby fighting to the end,

Until I find the answer why

YESTERDAY’S GIRL

He loved you much more than a sister or brother,

He is honest and kind, he’s a man like no other,

And he’d give his own life if somebody needed it more,

Yes he laughs all the time with me he gives his love and friendship to all,

You hurt him real bad, in his moments of silence,

He shares all his pain with me and his personal subsidence,

Still he fights with his mind, he believes he’s done you wrong,

So he goes to sleep crying again like a child, like a child,

He would go anywhere that you asked,

He would answer to all that you need,

But it’s clear now to me what he’s feeling inside,

He is thinking of yesterdays girl, all you are now is yesterdays girl,

He is free now from all of your painful attack,

Free now from all of your poiseness chat, free from yesterdays girl,

On occasion we’ll smoke and small conversation,

We’ll pass briefly on older times and forgotten relations,

He’s the best friend I’ve ever had, our opinions never cross,

Now you come to me needing a shoulder that’s strong,

When all of your pain is because you were wrong,

He would go anywhere that you asked,

He would answer to all that you need,

But it’s clear now to me what he’s feeling inside,

He is thinking of yesterdays girl, all you are now is yesterdays girl,

He is free now from all of your painful attack,

Free now from all of your poiseness chat, free from yesterdays girl
