Sleeping with one eye open
In a black forest among the trees
Picking all the rotten leaves
Walking round in circles, never free
Storms are pouring, every night
Matching tears crawling down my cheeks
Going mad as a jealous beast
Bursts from deep down inside of me

Pre-chorus
Thinking all hope is lost, until

Chorus
I see gold light
I see your eyes
I see my way out of this broken life
I see magic
Future love and laughter
I see all the things that matter

2
Awaken with fresh desire
In this black forest with many trees
Counting all the new buds
Along the straight trail, leading to free
Storms are falling, far behind
It’s like life just flipped on its side
Through the trees, there is a glow
It’s all I need to guide me home

Pre-chorus
Because all hope was lost, until

Chorus
I saw gold light
I saw your eyes
I saw my way out of this broken life
I saw magic
Future love and laughter
I saw all the things that matter


Bridge
Stepping out
Embracing light
My eyes shine
For the very first time
The pain was progress
Scars were made
But now I’m here
And I’m ready to stay

Pre-chorus
Because all hope was lost, until

Chorus
I saw gold light
I saw your eyes
I saw my way out of this broken life
I saw magic
Future love and laughter
I saw all the things that matter

All The Things That Matter

1
I feel ugly on the outside
I feel like I only make you mad
I feel a million miles apart
I feel like we’ll never, never figure it out

Chorus
You feel that I’m selfish thinking just that
Thinking it’s all on me
That my eyes are blind
That it’s really all on you
That I need to help you through
But oh it’s hard, baby
I just want to show my love to you

2
I feel heartbroken every single night
I feel 10,000 feet apart instead of 2
I feel pressure to not care
I feel that it’s just not, not possible to do

Chorus
You feel that I’m selfish thinking just that
Thinking it’s all on me
That my eyes are blind
That it’s really all on you
That I need to help you through
But oh it’s hard, baby
I just want to show my love to you

Bridge
I feel I try and try and try and try
Try to ask if you’ll try
But you just push me aside
I feel I cry and cry and cry and cry
Cry because things changed with time
You push me to the friend side
Oh please tell me why, why, why

Chorus
You feel that I’m selfish thinking just that
Thinking it’s all on me
That my eyes are blind
That it’s really all on you
That I need to help you through
But oh it’s hard, baby
I just want to show my love to you

I Feel

1
Used to care, now I just don't care
Stress it out, now I dance around
Feel the worst, now I know my worth
Cuz I don't care what you're all about

2
Used to whine, now I think life's fine
Overwork, now I put me first
Feel pressure, now I live life sure
Cuz I don't care what you think I should

PreChorus
Oh, it's an art to, not care when you want to
Not care when you want to, want to

Chorus
But it's worth it, trust me
You'll feel a whole lot, more free
More like you, should be
When you don't care

3
Used to cry, now I don't ask why
Hold a grudge, now give things a nudge
Dwell on life, now enjoy life right
Cuz I don't care what you're wanting now

PreChorus
Oh, it's an art to, not care when you want to
Not care when you want to, want to

Chorus
But it's worth it, trust me
You'll feel a whole lot, more free
More like you, should be
When you don't care

Bridge
Cuz these bogus expectations, lead to life realizations, self-care improvisations, and then empowering vocations

These unrealistic pressures, lead to bigger life adventures, a heart that's full of treasures, and friendships strong as leather

PreChorus
Oh, it's an art to, not care when you want to
Not care when you want to, want to

Chorus
But it's worth it, trust me
You'll feel a whole lot, more free
More like you, should be
When you don't care

Don't Care

Thoughts
In my head
Against
All your opinions
Oh thoughts
In my head
Burning up with rage
About to lose control

2
Why
Did you think
That you
Had every right to
Tell
Me what to do
I blame it all on you
Blame all my pain on you

Chorus
Cuz you thought I didn’t know
How to live, how to do
What’s right for me
But I need you to know
Foot down I will do what’s right for me
For me

3
Feels
In my heart
Grow
As I make my stand
Oh feels
In my heart
Never weak again
The time for me is now

Chorus (x2)
Cuz you thought I didn’t know
How to live, how to do
What’s right for me
But I need you to know
Foot down I will do what’s right for me
For me

For Me

Chorus
Let’s get away
Go over there
All around the world
I don’t care
Let’s just get away
You and I
Adventure waits
On the other side
Let’s get away

1
‘Cuz if we go
And we get far
We might figure out who we are
Away from life
The mind let free
We can decide who we want to be

Chorus
Let’s get away
Go over there
All around the world
I don’t care
Let’s just get away
You and I
Adventure waits
On the other side
Let’s get away

2
When we’re there
Exploring wide
We can get to the other side
‘Cuz I have faith
If we decide
We can leave old drama behind

Chorus
Let’s get away
Go over there
All around the world
I don’t care
Let’s just get away
You and I
Adventure waits
On the other side
Let’s get away

3
On a trip
Healing our old scars
We might even see some stars
Take a chance
And fly with me
Let’s break through the galaxy

Chorus
Let’s get away
Go over there
All around the world
I don’t care
Let’s just get away
You and I
Adventure waits
On the other side
Let’s get away

Let's Get Away

VERSE 1
She had naive belief
Didn't know life's a ruse
Until all she ever wanted
She could never choose

VERSE 2
She then faked a smile
Just to fake herself
Tons of fortune around
But none that brought her wealth

CHORUS
There is power in the mind
But reality is real
Sometimes it just doesn’t happen
Oh give it up, my dear
Sometimes all that's left to bear in the end is silence

VERSE 3
It wasn’t her choice
She couldn’t alter fate
Twisted past twists the now
Into a ball of hate

CHORUS
There is power in the mind
But reality is real
Sometimes it just doesn’t happen
Oh give it up, my dear
Sometimes all that's left to bear in the end is silence

BRIDGE
Watch her fade
Her life turn gray
The passing days
With no damn change
It's all the same
A loop insane
Spirit so low
Another silent day

CHORUS
There is power in the mind
But reality is real
Sometimes it just doesn’t happen
Oh give it up, my dear
Sometimes all that's left to bear in the end is silence

Silence

Verse 1
Over the years
You would tell me words
But the words just disappeared
I see that now
It was all just talk
A bunch of talk to calm my fears

Chorus
Well my eyes have opened
With my heart right broken
I’m done listening to you
I’m done with talk, talk, talk
Take a walk, walk, walk
Don’t come back without the truth

Verse 2
You played me, fool
Said what I hoped to hear
Well, can you hear what I’m saying now?
I won’t believe
Another crooked phrase
Unless the phrase is action bound

Chorus
For my eyes have opened
With my heart right broken
I’m done listening to you
I’m done with talk, talk, talk
Take a walk, walk, walk
Don’t come back without the truth

Verse 3
You know my desires
What I want from life
Why tell me things that don’t come true?
I want it all with you
But am closing off
Unless you tell me the truth

Chorus
See my eyes have opened
With my heart right broken
I’m done listening to you
I’m done with talk, talk, talk
Take a walk, walk, walk
Don’t come back without the truth

The Truth

Verse 1
Life is a jagged rock
We’re told our own tale nonstop
Live life how we’re told
Let’s break the trend before we’re old
Oh do this, can’t you see
All we want is to be free

Chorus
We’re working hard
To feel better
Smile brighter and laugh a little harder
Make our own choice
Have some wins
It’s our life
Never giving in

Verse 2
Say no when we wanna say no
It’s a cage fight inner punch down low
Let’s change the habits engrained so long
And get rid of our old sad song
Oh do this, can’t you see
All we want is to be free

Chorus
We’re working hard
To feel better
Smile brighter and laugh a little harder
Make our own choice
Have some wins
It’s our life
Never giving in

Bridge
We’re in charge of we
So let’s be who we were born to be
They can’t tell us what to do
It’s up to us to be our truth

Chorus
We’re working hard
To feel better
Smile brighter and laugh a little harder
Make our own choice
Have some wins
It’s our life
Never giving in

It's Our Life
