What have I done to deserve all this Been brushed by death, ole misery’s kiss My path not always the straight and narrow But I’ve kept my eyes upon his ole sparrow This burden has gotten to hard to bear Tell me Lord are you still there Mercy hear my plea x3 Ease up on a sinner x3 Cause I can’t stand no more shoes dropping What have I done to deserve all this Payin the devil’s due with some interest I pray the Lord my pain to take Forgiveness for the rules I break But this burden has gotten to hard to bear Tell me Lord are you still there Mercy hear my plea x3 Ease up on a sinner x3 Cause I can’t stand no more shoes dropping What have I done to deserve all this Burned by hell fire, searing my flesh I cry and cry - give me relief My constant friend sorrow and grief But this burden has gotten so hard to bear Tell me Lord do you still care? Mercy hear my plea x3 Ease up on a sinner x3 Cause I can’t stand no more shoes dropping

V1 Just sitting here wondering How did I get Here Had to go and fall in love again Not a week has passed me Since the last goodbye And it seems I'm falling for this new guy It's that get to know you feeling The mystery gets me tangled twisted can't resist it Well he seems like a good one so I'll do my best But his friend has got my heart beating fast Chorus: Love Trips me and I'm falling over and over V2 I'm not a heart breaker Well, I try not to be Just can't keep my eyes from wandering I want my pick of flavors anything under the sky Chocolate, cinnamon, or Vanilla chai I try to hold steady Love has other plans Here comes another pretty pretty man Chorus Love trips me and I'm falling over and over Bridge' Don't judge me Hear me out please Give my philosophy a try I want to lease with an option to buy V3 Just sitting here wondering How did I get here Maybe I'll keep this one for the year Turn over a new leaf Try to behave He might be the one to change my ways Chorus: Love trips me and I'm falling over and over

Great One 03:59
Can you rise above the rest Think you’re really that blessed As you wallow in your mediocrity Is that all you’ll ever be Someone once said that you were good Why’s that so hard to believe Can’t listen to a word they said Over the Demons in your head Do you even try Do you even dare to be a great one To find the how or why that leads you to become one of the great ones Each time you share some of yoursel f Hope it won’t lead you to break No one can see how fragile you are Or how little you can take You set your bar way too high On that unreachable star Should just give up and be happy Never though you would get this far Do you even try Do you even dare to be a great one To find the how or why that leads you to become one of the great ones Everyone must dream But some dreams fail Who are you to think Your’s isn’t the same tale Won’t you stop your dreaming x3 And live awake How many chances do you take How many gos do you give Before you realize the settle Is all that’s left for you my friend Do you even try Do you even dare to be a great one To find the how or why that leads you to become one of the great ones Do you even try Do you think you’ll ever be a great one For you it’s do or die Give everything you’ve got And be a great one

V1 Yes I’m glad to know your pain has gone away But I selfishly wanted you to stay And I can’ t move beyond all the times we shared This loneliness is hard to bear V2 I am powerless to turn back the night All that’s left in me is a burning need to fight But his will is done Another soul on its way To the other side of day Chorus And I know it’s time to say goodbye But I find it’s hard to let you go V3 Time makes you believe you’re its master to obey Then runs out on you before you’re ready And you pray for more Just one more day But no hands to be won, no bargains to be made Chorus And I know i t’s time to say goodbye But I find it’s hard to let you go La la la la la la la la And you pray for more Just one more day

Close your eyes, and put everything aside They’ll be no worries for tonight And when the sun, beckons for you to rise again Maybe some battles you will win I know the challenges you face Make it hard to live each day So Lord I pray You will find some comfort here tonight With this lover’s lullaby Close your eyes, let go the fears that holds you back You’ll find the cour age that you lack And when you dream, think of possibilities That the future can bring And I, I will stay right by your side Through this fight of your life, so as you lie You will find some comfort here tonight As I sing this lover’s lullaby I know this world seems strange to you After the pain that you’ve gone through But just hold on and you will see In time, you’ll heal just trust in me And close your eyes, just put everything aside They’ll be no worries for tonight You are loved, you can feel it in my touch A precious gift from above And when you start to lose your faith again Find that strength from within I know you can And you will find some courage here tonight As I sing this lover’s lullaby You will find some courage here tonight As I sing th is lover’s lullaby

Passin Me By 03:12
Dark Clouds in the sky don’t seem to bother me I just keep looking for that silver lining Well the storms may come They don’t last for long And though the times get rough I know that they’ll be passing me by And though the rains may fall I know that they’ll be passing me by Pass me by Oh Do do do do do Do do do do do Every once in a while people try to get me down But I just tell myself to keep my head up and move along Well I ca n’t let them decide How I should feel or when I can shine Though the times get rough I know that they’ll be passing me by And though the rains may fall I know that they’ll be passing me by Pass me by Oh Dark Clouds in the sky Know that they’ll be passing by I don’t let it get me down Well if I trust and believe in time I know that I will find Troubles won’t last for always Well the storms may come They don’t last for long And though the times get rough I know that they’ll be passing me by And though the rains may fall I know that they’ll be passing me by Pass me by Oh Do do do do do Do do do do do Do do do do do Oh Keep passing me by

You call me late at night And I run to you like I always do But in the early light I’m left feeling just like a fool I know you don’t see me that way But I’d love it if you’d call me My darlin My dear x3 I’d give anything to hear you call me My darlin My dear I always thought that I If given time, I could change your mind But I’ll never win your heart Cause I’m that girl, the girl on the side I know It won’t change a thing But I’d love it if you’d call me My darlin My dear x3 I’d give anything to hear you call me My darlin My dear Can you pretend that you love me Hold me in your arms and call me My darlin My dear x3 I’d give anything to hear you call me My darlin My dear

I really thought I could win your heart But I guess the game was always rigged You were hers from the start I was a momentary fix But I still think of you each night And as the sun begins to rise But you grow colder and more distant every day Cause for you I'm your biggest mistake The demons warring inside your head I calmed the fighting every night While I dreamed of kissing you again You dreamed of holding her tight Even though things have changed My love for you still remains But you treat me like a stranger in your way Cause for you I'm your biggest mistake You thought you'd come clean, tell her the truth Now she doesn't want a thing to do with you I thought we'd be together now you're free But you'd rather be alone than be with me I guess I'm just not worth the company... It's bound to fail when you let yourself Be a sorry consolation prize Cause he'll never see you as the best He lost that when he gave you a try And as he fights to win her back And be a better man at that He doesn't care about your heart left in his wake Cause for him, you'll always be his biggest mistake Yes, I know, I'm your biggest mistake

Caretaker 04:06
I know I said that I’d be there for you baby But does that mean I have to give up all my needs and be a Caretaker, Deal breaker, Why won’t someone take care of me I tried to do the right thing for you baby But does that mean to forget about my dreams and be a Caretaker, dream breaker, why won’t someone take care of me So bottom dropped out and our lives go t flipped, turned inside out Now the whole world sits upon my shoulders Can I keep it balanced until further notice I’m so used to getting by with a smile and the wink of an eye But when faced with life and death decisions Who can blame me if I’m slightly off the hinges This was not in the plan Get the job, get the man Live happily ever after My ruined storybook with the ripped out chapters I know I said that I’d be there for you baby But does that mean I have to give up all my needs and be a Caretaker, Deal breaker, Why won’t someone take care of me I tried to do the right thing for you baby But does that mean to forget about my dreams and be a Caretaker, dream breaker, why won’t someone take care of me One day everything is fine and the next day you’re losing your mind How do you keep up when you don’t know what’s expected Where’s the manual for life when it gets hectic Never know how much you’ll take till you’re pushed to the point where you break Troubles piling up left and right around me It ain’t yo ur fault but at you I get so angry Accidents happen to the strongest of men But the ones left picking up the pieces lose a little of themselves trying to find a reason I know I said that I’d be there for you baby But does that mean I have to give up all my needs and be a Caretaker, Deal breaker, Why won’t someone take care of me I tried to do the right thing for you baby But does that mean to forget about my dreams and be a Caretaker, dream breaker, why won’t some one take care of me I’m losing myself I’m locked in this hell I’m so ashamed cause he needs me But sometimes I can’t help the way that I’m feeling I know I said that I’d be there for you baby But does that mean I have to give up all my needs and be a Ca retaker, Deal breaker, Why won’t someone take care of me I tried to do the right thing for you baby But does that mean to forget about my dreams and be a Caretaker, dream breaker, why won’t someone take care of me Caretaker, dream breaker, why won’t someon e take care of me

End Of Time 03:02
You got me feeling like a school girl Waiting for your call So easy to fall in love with you Can’t wait to say I do, I do You got me under your spell now I don’t even care As long as you’ll be there by my side I’m gonna love you for the rest of my life Let’s love till the end of time Let’s love till the sun don’t shine I’m yours, your forever mine I’m gonna love you, love you till the end of time Whoo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo Whoo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo I spent so man y nights thinking I would never find somebody And then - along came you And now my search is through ohhhh In front o - of the alter Baby we will stand committed With all our family and friends Cause they know, I’ve found the perfect man Let’s love till the end of time Let’s love till the sun don’t shine I’m yours, your forever mine I’m gonna love you, love you till the end of time Whoo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo Whoo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo I’m gonna love you I’m gonna love you I’m gonna love you for the rest of my life Let’s love till the end of time Let’s love till the sun don’t shine I’m yours, your forever mine I’m gonna love you, love you till the end of time Whoo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo Whoo ooo ooo ooo ooo oo o

What You Get 03:39
V1 Sorry dad, I really wish I knew That when I grew up, I’d be so much like you I know I wasted time not knowing where to begin But now we’re going from strangers to the closest of friends Sorry sis, I know that I should call But of common interest we have little at all But I love you so much and of it more I should say and soon we'll have a conversation that lasts all day Chorus I'm so sorry I'm not the best I could be I'm still trying But what you get is what you see V2 Sorry mom, I should listen more Bu t you pay attention least to the ones you care most for I'll be good I swear, no more scares ok I couldn't handle it if cancer took you away Sorry love, I'm just a pain in the ass I know sometimes I'm withdrawn, but the moments pass I'm selfish and sad, b ut then so are you But in the end I'm so lucky to be stuck with you. Chorus I'm so sorry I'm not what you want me to be I'm still trying But what you get is what you see V3 Sorry God I didn't pray much today //And there's no tithe cause I had rent to pay In you, I still believe - but I feel lost sometimes And to the answers I need it seems you turn a blind eye Chorus I'm so sorry For not keeping the faith I need But Lord I'm still trying But what you get is what you see I’m so sorry I’m still working on me And I’ll keep trying But what you get is what you see
