VERSE 1
Moments I was lost
Lost in all the troubles
Days I grew cold
From all the broken codes
There were days I felt all alone
There were days I was losing hope
You were right there all along
But I just couldn't see

CHORUS
Just wanna say thank you
For loving me so
Consistently holding me close
For never letting me go
For every word you said to my fainting heart
I want to say thank you
For loving me

VERSE 2
Friends became unreliable
Family could not understand
Days I could not pray
Nights I could not watch
Many years I couldn't relate
Many times I kept falling short
Setting me up for something greater
But I just couldn't recognise

BRIDGR
Lord you give the greatest love
A solid rock that I can trust
Lord you are my greatest love
My solid rock ever true.

THANK YOU

VERSE 1
It's that voice in your head
Whispering lies you can't unhear
It's the darkness that will daunt you
An ever lurking fear
It's the reason you'll always be nothing
The evil that you're fighting
An unending battle you'll likely lose
The reason you're always bruised

This thing will break your heart
burn your soul
Take control of your whole
Till you find your finger
On the trigger

CHORUS
Escape from the lies
You're screaming but no one can hear
Alive on the outside
dying on the inside
Break down the walls
Drowning but no one can see
Alive on the outside
Dying on the inside
Depression depression

VERSE 2
Living in your delusion
The whole world hating you
No escape from this oppression
The nightmares will consume you
Hiding behind a mask
You'll find you're in a place of no rest
This monster is without mercy
You'll think you don't exist

This thing will break your heart
burn your soul
Take control of your whole
Till you find your finger
On the trigger

BRIDGE
Depression depression
Keep eyes wide open
Don't get caught unawares
Don't you yield to the lies
Only truth will prevail
No finger on trigger
No finger on trigger
No no no finger on trigger

FINGER ON TRIGGER

VERSE 1
Heart bleeding
Spirit weary
Questions unanswered
I'm broken
My hope stolen
I'm slowly losing grip

CHORUS
They say things get better in time
But I'm still counting scars
I'm still counting scars
After the dark comes sunrise
Seems my night never ends
For I'm still counting scars

VERSE 2
I'm wondering
If there's ever a thing like
Happy ending
I'm losing faith
I'm drowning, lost
Slowly losing air

BRIDGE
Maybe someday it'll all be over
Maybe someday I won't even remember
All the experiences that have scarred me like forever
But right now, I only know the pain I feel.

COUNTING SCARS

VERSE 1
Too young to speak
Too young to understand
Too young to fight
Too young to take a stand
Didn't know to differentiate
Between right and wrong
So you took advantage for too long
Just a child, just a little baby
Innocence gone, trust betrayed

CHORUS
I never was the same
A very deep cut you gave
I bled for many years
Now I've learnt to heal myself
To heal the wound that you left
I'm doing this by letting you go
I'm letting you go.

VERSE 2
Too long I hated you
For what you did to me
Too long I failed to see
I was more than you made of me
Didn't realize I didn't have to stay broken
So I played invisible
Too long I stayed hidden
Just a child, just a little baby
Innocence gone trust betrayed

BRIDGE
You took an important part of me
But you didn't take the best of me
You may have won for many years
But now I've learnt to see beyond my fears

LETTING YOU GO

VERSE 1
Shouting, quarrels, every morning
What a trend
Bruises, hurts, mama gets everday
I feel her pain
I'm not a kid no more
I see what's going on
I see her grief, they hurt me too
I'm hating you for this but that ain't good
So I'm writing you this letter to put things right

CHORUS
I'm saying daddy
Would you stop now
Hitting mummy
Would you stop now
Show some love
I'm saying daddy
Would you stop now
Hitting mummy
Would you stop now
Make things right tonight

VERSE 2
What happens to promises
Made at the alter
Why so much hate
It's got me thinking
Can I have a home of my own
The fear's so deep
The little ones are lonely
That hardly see their mama
I see their grief, I feel it too
Dad's so aggressive
Like he doesn't care for no one
So I'm writing you this letter to put things right.

BRIDGE
Tonight you're gonna put things right
End our tears, our hurting hearts
Love like you've never loved before
Tonight you're gonna fix this
Here's my letter to daddy

LETTER TO DADDY

VERSE 1
We're on the sidewalk
My hands in your hands
Our laughter So loud
Anyone could tell we're happy in love
But then I wake, you've been gone
I realise you've been gone too long
The memories they keep haunting me
Though I know you're never coming back to me again.

CHORUS
Still I want you to hold me
Like you did before baby
Still I need you to need me
Like you did before baby
Boy you left me broken and torn
On that night you went out the door
I can't live with this heartaches no more
You could as well have pulled the trigger.

VERSE 2
You sit beside me
Your arms around me
We're staring at the stars
Above the sea
We could teach the world to love
But then I wake to emptiness
That drowns my heart in grief and fear
The memories, they're haunting me
Though I know you're never coming back to me again

BRIDGE
When you walked out of my life
You took my reason for life with you
Now I'm empty, broken completely

PULLED THE TRIGGER

From the moment I first saw you
I knew you were mine
Somehow you'd be mine
Though it took a while for you to see
What I'd already seen
It's like what they say
Que sera sera
What will be will be

CHORUS
I've got you
You've got me
We've got us
It's like dejavu
It's like magic
It feels perfect
Damn it feels like fate

VERSE 2
Knowing you has been so magical
I'm touched by an angel
Sent from heaven
Love, oh love
Is right here in front of me
And I'm holding on tight
It's like what they say
Que sera sera
What will be will be

BRIDGE
You're my everything that I've ever needed and I am your everything
That you've ever needed

I'VE GOT YOU

VERSE 1
You will find someone better
One to give you all I never could
I'll do same
Maybe we'll even forget
The thousand drops of tears
We cried for each smile we shared
Though I won't forget
That you were once my everything
Hope you don't remember how much I adored you
Please don't remember how hard you loved me

CHORUS
After the darkest hour comes sunrise
I know we'll get better in time
I won't waste your time
I'll pack my bags and leave
Cos this goodbye as hard as it seems
Is there best we've ever done.

VERSE 2
I'll live my life well
Do all I couldn't do with you
I hope you'll do same
Love better than before
Though I know I won't forget how much you loved me
Never want to let go of all the memories we made
But you better not think of my tears
You better not remember your tears
(CHORUS)

BRIDGE
I say I'm sorry
That we couldn't work things out
I wish you wouldn't shed a tear
We can find happiness again

GOOD BYE
