You’re in a battle with yourself
Secluded within
No way to win
You’ve hit the self destruct
Following the motions
Void and broken

Please take my hand
I realize that I may not fully understand
But take my hand
Even though you can’t see
You’re worth it to me
Take my hand
I will fight, I will fight for you
Even when you don’t want to
Take my hand

You’re on the inside looking out
Completely numb
Ready to succumb
Buried inside the darkest pit
You recklessly claw about
Not even sure if you want to make it out
On the ledge of the highest edge
You negligently hover, dangling over
Indifferent to what comes next
Empty and hollow
No care what’s to follow

Please take my hand
I realize that I may not fully understand
But take my hand
Even though you can’t see
You’re worth it to me
Take my hand
I will fight, I will fight for you
Even when you don’t want to
Take my hand

At rock bottom
It’s hard to see the light
But I’ve gotten this far
Without leaving a comrade behind
You may have lost the battle
But you can still win the war
That’s exactly what I’m here for
I won’t leave
Lean on me
Hear my plea

Please take my hand
I realize that I may not fully understand
But take my hand
Even though you can’t see
You’re worth it to me
Take my hand
I will fight, I will fight for you
Even when you don’t want to
Take my hand

I’m reaching out for you
Take my hand
I’m reaching out for you
Take my hand

Take My Hand

It’s absurd
Because I’m such a nerd
People ask me how I expect to get you, get you
And to tell the truth
I have no clue, no clue

You’re out of my league
In a league of your own
So intrigued by all that you’ve shown
You’re a high roller calling the shots
While I’m betting at the penny slots
But that doesn’t mean I’m not coming after you
You can bet that’s just what I’ll do

I’ve got nothing to lose
And I cannot excuse
All that I’m about to do
I’m swiping the pot
Don’t care if I’m caught
I’m betting it all on me and you
Don’t be alarmed
Im just guilty as charged, as charged, as charged
I’m guilty as charged, as charged, as charged
And I’m charging after you

No longer observing
I’m here to wager it all
The stakes are high
But I’m ready to fall
Through the clouds of smoke
I make my way to your side
Something deep inside I’ve awoke
I’m not taking this in stride
It’s time to make you mine

I’ve got nothing to lose
And I cannot excuse
All that I’m about to do
I’m swiping the pot
Don’t care if I’m caught
I’m betting it all on me and you
Don’t be alarmed
Im just guilty as charged, as charged, as charged
I’m guilty as charged, as charged, as charged
And I’m charging after you

So what’s it gonna be
You’re the judge and jury
Deliberation is done
The verdict is out
I know I’m the one
Without a doubt

I’ve got nothing to lose
And I cannot excuse
All that I’m about to do
I’m swiping the pot
Don’t care if I’m caught
I’m betting it all on me and you
Don’t be alarmed
Im just guilty as charged, as charged, as charged
I’m guilty as charged, as charged, as charged
And I’m charging after you

Guilty as Charged

Look around
Life is constantly in motion
Always a crowd
Some sort of commotion
It’s too much to take
I need a break

My getaway
My great escape
When I get lost
The only place I can be found
Is out in the pines

Peace
Out in the pines
The trees gently intertwine
They whisper to me a lullaby
A masterpiece is painted in the sky
Peace
Out in the pines
It calls out to me
Telling me I need to find
Peace
Out in the pines

I wake up to a crisp aroma
Daring me to breath it in
Filling my lungs and keeping me young
At night the sky is such a sight
Freckled with stars
Like a million nightlights
They say a picture is worth a thousand words
But there are so many more this place deserves

My getaway

Peace

Time is frozen
Tranquility takes over me
Seeping in
This place I’ve chosen
Allows serenity to set me free
Spreading peace
Out in the pines
Forgetting all that weighed on my mind

I need to get out of the city
Away from all the noise
Every place fills up so quickly
You can’t even hear your own voice
Shoulder to shoulder
Trying to keep my composure
But the truth is
I only want you getting closer

Don’t you wanna
Don’t you wanna
Don’t you wanna
Do something new
I’m giving you a cue
We’re rollin out in the dead of night
We’re doing this alright
I just wanna get lost with you
Stray to a better view
The stars will be our map
The moon will light the way
Wild and free, we can be
Wild and free, just you and me

We searched all around
And finally found
A two lane road
That led out of town
The streetlights and pavement
Both came to an end
And that’s the moment
Our adventure began

We found a little spot
In an empty farm field
Hoping that we wouldn’t get caught
Trying to stay concealed
That little bit of seclusion
Was our much needed resolution
To be wild and free
Just you and me

Don’t you wanna
Don’t you wanna
Don’t you wanna
Do something new
I’m giving you a cue
We’re rollin out in the dead of night
We’re doing this alright
I just wanna get lost with you
Let’s stray to a better view
The stars will be our map
The moon will light the way
Wild and free, we can be
Wild and free, just you and me

That night made such an impression
We didn’t ever wanna to go back
It was pure perfection
And it set us on a track
To set our own path
To pave our own way
Out in the open
The moon and the stars
Light up our new farm

Don’t you wanna
Don’t you wanna
Don’t you wanna
Do something new
I’m giving you a cue
We’re rollin out in the dead of night
We’re doing this alright
I just wanna get lost with you
We’ve strayed to a better view
The stars are our map
The moon lights the way
Wild and free, we can be
Wild and free, just you and me

Wild and Free

Wish I would’ve had a crystal ball
Then I might’ve seen this coming
Some divine insight
Telling me to put up a fight
I really could’ve used a sign
Maybe then I’d be just fine

I need to rewind, reverse
Relinquish all these years
I need to suppress, subdue
Take back all the tears

Don’t know what to do, do, do
Getting over you, you, you
Got you out of my bed
Need you out of my head
You’re taking up space
It’s such a disgrace
You broke my heart to pieces, pieces
Now I’m picking up the pieces, pieces
And moving on

It started out so right
So happy and so hopeful
Saw you almost every night
We were inseparable
So deep in lust
Craving every touch
You had all my trust
Then things started changing, changing

I need to rewind, reverse
Relinquish all these years
I need to suppress, subdue
Take back all the tears

Don’t know what to do, do, do
Getting over you, you, you
Got you out of my bed
Need you out of my head
You’re taking up space
It’s such a disgrace
You broke my heart to pieces, pieces
Now I’m picking up the pieces, pieces
And moving on

Am I, am I, am I over you?
When I met her I knew we were through
You bruised and broke my heart
Tore it all apart
Now you’re evicted from my head
Go be with her instead

I need to rewind, reverse
Relinquish all these years
I need to suppress, subdue
Take back all the tears

Don’t know what to do, do, do
Getting over you, you, you
Got you out of my bed
Need you out of my head
You’re taking up space
It’s such a disgrace
You broke my heart to pieces, pieces
Now I’m picking up the pieces, pieces
And moving on

I’m revoking your permit
To this defective relationship

Pieces

I know it’s cliche
For me to say it was love at first sight
But if I’m being real
That’s the only way to portray the story right

You drew me in
Just one look is all it took
I was hopelessly devoted
You were completely unknowing

Now my heart, heart, heart
Is beating in your hands, hands, hands
You’re everything I never needed and more
You’re all I wasn’t looking for

My heart was obliterated
In the blink of an eye
One look, one breath
And it was goodbye
You came in fast
You came in strong
I was gone, I was drawn
And just can’t believe you happened to me
Now my heart is gone

Like a magnet you attract me
I just can’t pull away
I see your face in every place
I hear your voice in every noise
I’m so wrapped up in your presence
Entranced by your essence

Now my heart, heart, heart
Is beating in your hands, hands, hands
You’re everything I never needed and more
You’re all I wasn’t looking for

My heart was obliterated
In the blink of an eye
One look, one breath
And it was goodbye
You came in fast
You came in strong
I was gone, I was drawn
And just can’t believe you happened to me
Now my heart is gone

Can’t breath
Can’t sleep
I just can’t do without you
I’m gone
I’m drawn
Yeah, one look and my heart knew
You’re all I see
You’re all I need
You’re the only one I’ll pursue

Now my heart, heart, heart
Is beating in your hands, hands, hands
You’re everything I never needed and more
You’re all I wasn’t looking for

My heart was obliterated
In the blink of an eye
One look, one breath
And it was goodbye
You came in fast
You came in strong
I was gone, I was drawn
And just can’t believe you happened to me
Now my heart is gone

All I Wasn’t Looking For

I had to let you stray
Knowing that someday
You’d be back with a broken heart
Girl your life has barely started
Don’t let them leave you broken hearted

So you found out
Those around you aren’t always so nice
Let me wrap my arms around you
Around you
Around you
And make everything alright
Let me wrap my arms around you
Around you
Around you

You say this boy that found you
Hurt you out of spite
Honey if he only knew
All the love he threw away
That you’d be the best thing in his life
Pursue those who treat you right
And let the others take flight

So you found out
Those around you aren’t always so nice
Let me wrap my arms around you
Around you
Around you
And make everything alright
Let me wrap my arms around you
Around you
Around you

Take your time
Compose yourself
You have every right
Not to be alright
Give yourself time
To regain your confidence
My arms will remain around you
Around you
Around you
I promise in time you will be fine

So you found out
Those around you aren’t always so nice
Let me wrap my arms around you
Around you
Around you
And make everything alright
Let me wrap my arms around you
Around you
Around you

Let me wrap my arms around you
Around you
Around you

Around You

In life you’ll find
People can be so unkind
You might find another side
That will make you wanna run and hide
Life’s not all rainbows and roses
And someday you’ll need to know this

I know the times gonna come
When you won’t be quite so young
You’ll venture out to find independence
And create your own adventures
The best advice I can give
Is do you and let yourself live

It’s gonna take, gonna take, gonna take confidence
But take that chance
Enjoy the dance
Don’t change who you are
You’ll always be my shinning star
Be true to you
And your confidence will shine through

One day you’ll discover
You won’t always be right
You’ll win some, you’ll lose some
It’s okay to admit when you’ve lost the fight
You’re gonna need confidence
To take on every day
To show others the way
Stand up for those who can’t
Let your confidence transplant

It’s gonna take, gonna take, gonna take confidence
But take that chance
Enjoy the dance
Don’t change who you are
You’ll always be my shinning star
Be true to you
And your confidence will shine through

There may be days
When you feel so alone
Days your gonna wanna come home
Days when you go round and round
When others try to bring you down
Doesn’t matter what they say
What do they know anyway?
They don’t have your confidence
To stand up for what’s right
To stand up for the fight

It’s gonna take, gonna take, gonna take confidence
But take that chance
Enjoy the dance
Don’t change who you are
You’ll always be my shinning star
Be true to you
And your confidence will shine through
Let your confidence shine through

Confidence

I’m so wrapped up in your presence
Entranced by your essence

Now my heart, heart, heart
Is beating in your hands, hands, hands
You’re everything I never needed and more
You’re all I wasn’t looking for

My heart was obliterated
In the blink of an eye
One look, one breath
And it was goodbye
You came in fast
You came in strong
I was gone, I was drawn
And just can’t believe you happened to me
Now my heart is gone

Can’t breath
Can’t sleep
I just can’t do without you
I’m gone
I’m drawn
Yeah, one look and my heart knew
You’re all I see
You’re all I need
You’re the only one I’ll pursue

Now my heart, heart, heart
Is beating in your hands, hands, hands
You’re everything I never needed and more
You’re all I wasn’t looking for

My heart was obliterated
In the blink of an eye
One look, one breath
And it was goodbye
You came in fast
You came in strong
I was gone, I was drawn
And just can’t believe you happened to me
Now my heart is gone

All I Wasn’t Looking For
