NIGHT AFTER NIGHTTop

Verse 1

When I try and picture you now, I see you cradled in your hands
And you got your knees pulled in tight, always praying for a man
Every tear that you let hit the ground, is another in defeat
From the bruises that our on your face, to the glass that's in your feet

Chorus

Oh, Night after night he was waiting for his pride to finally break him
Looking for someone put him in his place oh ignite the flame

Verse 2

And you're always thinking that one day, you will grown up to be strong
But he tries to tell you that you're weak, And he tells you that you're wrong
And I wish that you'd look up , from the pit
Hit the ground and run away from where you've been ohhhhhhhh

Chorus

Night after night he was waiting for his pride to finally break him
Looking for someone to put him in his place , oh ignite the flame

Repeat

Bridge

When will his hand be enough
Will you stand, will you stand up for us
When will his hand be enough

When will his hand be enough
Will you stand, will you stand up for us
When will his hand be enough

Chorus

Night after night he was waiting for his pride to finally break him
Looking for someone to put him in his place, oh ignite the flame

Night after night he was waiting for his pride to finally break him
Looking for someone to put him in his place, oh ignite the flame

PAGESTop

Verse 1

I remember this feeling
It's been there before
But I ended up broken
Picking myself off the floor
The wall that I built was too high to climb
But it will fall just give it sometime

I know you're confused but so am I
The emotions are real, they're hard to deny
Two people on two separate stages
One simple story, two different pages

Pre-chorus

What am I to do
What am I to do

Chorus

I'm just a simple girl
Who is falling for you
And it's no secret, boy
You are falling for me too
We can't move forward so we just step back
Maybe one day we'll be on the same track

Verse 2

I remember this feeling
It's been there before
But I ended up broken
Picking myself off the floor
The wall that I built was too high to climb
But it will fall just give it sometime

Pre-chorus

What am I to do
What am I to do

Chorus

I'm just a simple girl
Who is falling for you
And it's no secret boy
You are falling for me too
We can't move forward so we just step back
Maybe one day we'll be on the same track

Bridge

I know you're confused but so I
The emotions are real they're hard to deny
Two people on two separate stages
One simple story, two different pages

Chorus

I'm just a simple girl
Who is falling for you
And it's no secret boy
You are falling for me too
We can't move forward so we just step back
Maybe one day we'll be ... we'll be yeah

I'm just a simple girl
Who is falling for you
And it's no secret boy
You are falling for me too
We cant move forward so we just step back
Maybe one day we'll be on the same track
On the same track

WORLD WILL CATCH UPTop

Verse 1

Hold on to what is real
Stay true to what you feel
Don't let anyone tell you who you are
Break down and then they'll tear open your scars

Pre chorus

Everytime you get up and stand strong
A little girl could be the one to catch on
Even if this crazy world tells you you're wrong
Brace yourself because it won't be long

Chorus

No dream you dream too small
Never let your doubts just have it all
Always find a way to make stand
yaaayy
Leave all of your sorrows in the past
Take on your new hope, it's made to last
Take it to the world and make a change
The world will catch up one day
I said the world will catch up one day

Verse 2

I know that there is always hell to face
which you choose to wallow in or just walk away
I know that its much easier said then done
But if you try to save yourself the battle you have won

Pre chorus

Everytime you get up and stand strong
A little girl could be the one to catch on
Even if this crazy world tells you your wrong
Brace yourself because it wont be long

Chorus

No dream you dream too small
Never let your doubts just have it all
Always find a way to make a stand, oh
Leave all of your sorrows in the past
Take on your new hope, it's made to last
Take it to the world and make a change
The world will catch up one day
I said the world will catch up.....

Bridge

Every time you go to turn on the tv
You see a girl and question "why cant it be me?"
And everyday you struggle with who you want to be
creating false images stop and break free

Every time you stand strong
A little girl is soon to catch on

Verse 1

Hold on to what is real
Stay true to what you feel

Chorus

No dream you dream to small
Never let your doubts just have it all
Always find a way to make a stand
Leave all of your sorrows in the past
Take on your new hope, it's made to last
Take it to the world and make a change
The world will catch up one day
I said the world will catch up one day

WHO I AMTop

Oh my heart it know the song
Everybody sings along
But I don't even know who I am

Oh her words they sound so strong
Even when she stands alone
But I don't even know who I am

It's 3 AM in the morning
Sitting there with paper in her arm
Nothing makes sense to her anymore
How deserving is she really
constantly making her mistakes
In her heart of hearts she knows that
Theres a man who created grace

Pre-chorus

And oh, how the story goes

Even when she stands alone
Nobody even knows who I am

SPEAKING LIESTop

Verse 1

If I believed every word you leaked
That choked my hopes and dreams
I'd stop chasing shooting stars
And settle for unbelief

If I let all the things you said
Break in and get to me
I'd wallow in judgement calls
That aren't even skin deep

Chorus

How can I say I'm sorry
When I did nothing wrong
Because we're living two different lives
And I've finally moved on
If only you could see through my eyes
For just one moment
Instead of speaking lies walk the line
So that you know it

Verse 2

You looked from the outside
When you couldn't find a way in
Watching change take place
While you're stuck where we begin

My world started growing
While yours started to cave in
My world lit on fire
While yours stayed dim

Chorus

How can I say I'm sorry
When I did nothing wrong
Because living we're two different lives
and I've finally moved on
If only you could see through my eyes
For just one moment
Instead of speaking lies walk the line
So that you know it

Repeat Chorus

Ending

I have been made whole
Took back what you stole
I have been made whole
Took back what you stole

No matter how many drinks she takes off the shelfs
I know you're angry but darlin you'll see

And when you cry at night
He is there to hear your cries

Chorus

I know you're singing yourself to sleep
Just to drown out the sound of her helpless pleads
