FIRE AND ICE

Verse 1
Oh when the darkness covers
The ocean
Will you believe
You’re chosen
Don’t you run away
Time has come
For change

Chorus
Wake up and seize the day
You’re so high
You fly above the rain
Wake up can you hear the sound
You’re so high
You never touch the ground

Verse 2
Oh when your heart is broken
And frozen
Will you believe you’re chosen
Unlock the chains
Time has come for change

Chorus
Wake up and seize the day
You’re so high
You fly above the rain
Wake up can you hear the sound
You’re so high
You never touch the ground

Bridge/Solo

Chorus

Wake Up

What will they think of me
If I don’t do what they say
What will they say about me
If I refuse to play their game
What if I don’t fit in
What if I choose to walk away
If I turn my back on them
Will I wish that I had stayed

Listen voices of doubt
Voices of greed
We put our trust in a pill
On a quest for inner peace
We spend what we don’t have
Buy things we don’t need
Just to impress people we don’t know

I won’t give up
I won’t give in
I’ll do whatever it takes
To find my home again
I won’t give up
I won’t give in
No matter how long it takes
To find my voice again
Remember who you are

Remember Who You Are

Remember Who You Are

Verse 1
I don’t care what you think of me
I don’t need a red carpet laid out for me
Attending all the latest things
I don’t care if you ever notice me

Chorus
I don’t want what you have
I don’t care what you have
I’m happy to be a nobody

Verse 2
I don’t need to make my teeth pearly white
I don’t need to stay out and party all night
I’m not on my way to be the next big thing
I love the simple things

Chorus
I don’t want what you have
I don’t want what you have
I’m happy to be a nobody

Bridge
Living life on my own terms
Living life in my jeans and t-shirt
Living life with no make up on
Living life in my humble home

I don’t want what you have
I don’t care what you have
I’m happy to be a nobody
I don’t want what you have
I don’t care what you have
I’m happy to be a nobody
I don’t want what you have
I don’t want what you have
I don’t want what you have

Simple Things

Verse 1
While they were smoking
She kicked it to the curb
While they were drinking
She locked her self away
And prayed and prayed
You’d make her stronger
Please don’t let her give in
She’s takin’ two steps back
Just to move forward again
She thinks about the time
When it was all a thrill
She could carry it all
And nothing would spill

Chorus
Whoa Jessie was a platter girl
Whoa we all wanted to be her

Verse 2
While they were laughing
She spent her time with you
While they were throwing down
Her heart was breaking in two
Sometimes you need to break
To let the light shine through
She heard you whispering
The only way out is through

Chorus
Whoa Jessie was a platter girl
Whoa we all wanted to be her
Whoa Jessie was a platter girl
Whoa she use to entertain the world

Bridge
Not where she wants to be
But at least she’s not where she was
Not who she wants to be
But at least she’s not who she was

Platter Girl

Verse 1
You take your scissors to me
Cut into my thread so perfectly
Cut to the inside of me
All the way through till I’m not me
Make my edges straight
Tell me what to say
You like it this way

Chorus
You hang me on your wall
Just like a paper doll
I’m hanging by a thread
You’re gonna let me fall
You hang me on your wall
Just like a paper doll
I’m hanging by a thread
You’re gonna let me fall
All this time you made me your paper doll
All this time I knew you would let me fall

Verse 2
You cut the deep parts of me
The ones you thought I wouldn't need
Unfolding your design
You hold me up for the world to see
And you would cut straight through
To make me just like you
Place me on display

Chorus

Bridge
Oh mirror mirror who is she
This stranger staring back at me
Tell my friends I say hello
I won’t be coming round no more

Verse 3
You take your scissors to me
Cut into my thread so perfectly
Cut to the inside of me
All the way through till I’m not me

PAPER DOLL

Verse 1
I stand here alone
Memories remain
Pain seems to last
All the years that pass

Pre Chorus
Now that I’m here
Eyes fill with tears
I know you’re not here
Been gone for years

Chorus
I stand on the edge
Where my hero rests
Don’t know what to say
To a stone that reads your name

Verse 2
I close my eyes
I picture your face
If you were here now
What would you say

Pre Chorus
Now that I’m here
Eyes fill with tears
I know you’re not here
Been gone for years

Chorus
I stand on the edge
Where my hero rests
Don’t know what to say
To a stone that reads your name

My Hero Rests

Verse 1
Those little lies started talking
God’s grace can’t save me now
Should’ve known I was hopeless
And the spiral tightens all the way down

I’m drenched in the feeling
Of being homesick
But I’m not away from home
Those little lies
Tell me I’m crazy
I’m not good enough
I will never make it on my own

Chorus
It kills me
Like the day
I just stood there
And let you walk away
It breaks my heart in pieces
I should know not to believe those
Little lies

Verse 2
It’s like a messiah
In a padded cell
They trick me into walking
Right off the edge of faith and into hell

I’m drenched in the feeling
Of being homesick
But I’m not away from home
Those little lies
Tell me I’m crazy
I’m not good enough
I will never make it on my own

Chorus
Bridge
I let my guard down
They come for me
But the man of sorrows
Has my victory
I won’t be deceived by those little lies
