back together

I don’t wanna be the center of it all
I don’t wanna be a memory fading
I don’t wanna be somebody I’m not
I just wanna be somebody amazing

I’ve been holding on to everything
With arms above, I’m balancing

I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together
I’ve been stalling, slipping, falling
Nothing, darling, lasts forever
There’s no way I’d trade my scars for better ones
I’ve been lost and I’ve been broken
Finally coming back together

I don’t wanna be afraid of my thoughts
I don’t wanna be scared of my shadow
Everybody looks for love where it’s not
Everybody wants to know they matter

I’ve been holding on to everything
With arms above, I’m balancing

I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together
I’ve been stalling, slipping, falling
Nothing, darling, lasts forever
There’s no way I’d trade my scars for better ones
I’ve been lost and I’ve been broken
Finally coming back together

I’ve been holding on to everything
With arms above, balancing

I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together
I’ve been stalling, slipping, falling
Nothing, darling, lasts forever
There’s no way I’d trade my scars for better ones
I’ve been lost and I’ve been broken
Finally coming back together
Back together
(I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together)

Back together

In the picture, you’re right beside me
Arms around my neck and eyes like you’ll never leave
A love lover, a sweet thing
I know we agreed but I think I’ll call you anyway, uh-huh

Well hello it’s just me
A little distance and I lost something in between
I’ve waited forever
For this to get better
You said “why should I believe in something
I can’t see or feel with my fingers?
Yeah why should I believe?”

And I said:
“Anytime you think you wanna be my love
That’s a reason, do what you’re thinking of
Anytime you think you wanna come on over
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive”

We hold on, take it slowly
Breathing deep and meaning every word for just you only
Keep this inside of you, no matter what you do
These are the simple things in loving you
The simple things in loving you

And you said “how can I believe in something
When you’re never here? I’m not even sure I need this.
How can I believe?”

And I said:
“Anytime you think you wanna be my love
That’s a reason, do what you’re thinking of
Anytime you think you wanna come on over
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive”

I’ve waited forever
For this to get better
And you said “why should I believe in something
I can’t see or feel with my fingers?
Yeah why should I believe?”

And I said:
“Anytime you think you wanna be my love
That’s a reason, do what you’re thinking of
Anytime you think you wanna come on over
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Get in the car and drive”

just a girl

Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
I’m exposed, and it’s no big surprise
Don’t you think I know
Exactly where I stand
This world is forcing me
To hold your hand

‘Cause I’m just a girl, little ol’ me
Well don’t let me out of your sight
Oh, I’m just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don’t let me have any rights
Oh, I’ve had it up to here!

The moment that I step outside
So many reasons for me to run and hide
I can’t do the little things
I hold so dear
‘Cause it’s all those little things
That I fear

‘Cause I’m just a girl
I’d rather not be
‘Cause they won’t let me drive
Late at night
Oh I’m just a girl
Guess I’m some kind of freak
‘Cause they all sit and stare
With their eyes

Oh I’m just a girl
Take a good look at me
Just your typical prototype
Oh, I’ve had it up to here!

Oh, am I making myself clear?

I’m just a girl
I’m just a girl in the world
That’s all that you’ll let me be!
Oh I’m just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb
Make me worry some
Oh I’m just a girl, what’s my destiny?
What I’ve succumbed to
Is making me numb
Oh I’m just a girl, my apologies
What I’ve become is so burdensome
Oh I’m just a girl, lucky me
Twiddle-dum there’s no comparison
Oh, I’ve had it up to –
Oh, I’ve had it up to –
Oh, I’ve had it up to here
