    1. Verse:
    Don’t look down
    Cause it’s easier falling from force
    Just letting it take nature’s course
    And picking it up when it’s over

    Don’t be afraid
    Cause the chances are there for the take
    But treasure the choices you make
    And know when you must take it slower

    Refrain:
    You may think you’ve had it rough
    And try to give it up
    But when you think you’re stuck
    Just go another way
    Chorus:
    Don’t let go of good times
    And let the bad ones know you feel fine
    And wear your heart out on your sleeve
    Love is all, love is all you need
    2. Verse:
    Don’t be rushed
    Cause hurrying causes mistakes
    And make sure to give more than take
    Cause sharing yourself brings you closer
    [Refrain]
    [Chorus]
    Refrain 2:
    Feel with all your senses
    Make sure to let down your defences
    There’s just one way to make you see
    Love is all, love is all you need
    Bridge:
    Take a chance now cause it’s easy
    Take a chance now for you and me
    Take a chance now you can reach it
    Take a chance for me
    [Chorus]
    [Refrain 2]
    Love is all you need,
    love is all, love is all, love is all you need

    Lyrics:Show Lyrics

    1. Verse:
    Okay, lets keep this simple
    I do intend to live my life on the safe side
    It’s who I am, and it’s who you aren’t
    I can, I can see you clearer
    When you’re not lying underneath it all
    And I can’t see your complexion
    And I know your heart
    The way you choose
    You always want the best for you
    But I’m standing here with crying eyes
    I still see through your disguise

    Chorus:
    I never meant for you to choose
    You should’ve known better
    There’s nothing left for you to loose
    When you looked at me and said you had it all
    But what you did; it’s not unforgivable
    But forgivable
    But what you did; it’s not unforgivable
    But forgivable

    2. Verse:
    And I know things have been going on
    You know you can’t erase your sin
    And now you can’t see your reflection
    I know that your heart is breaking
    But is it as torn as mine?
    You’ve already made it known
    How much you lie is what you’ve shown
    Everything inside my head
    Won’t leave me alone

    Chorus:
    I never meant for you to choose
    You should’ve known better
    There’s nothing left for you to loose
    When you looked at me and said you had it all
    But what you did; it’s not unforgivable
    But forgivable
    But what you did; it’s not unforgivable
    But forgivable

    3. Verse:
    Even though it’s been so long
    Now I know this is where I don’t want to be
    And I know something’s not right
    Now I’m telling you get off of me

    Chorus:
    I never meant for you to choose
    You should’ve known better
    There’s nothing left for you to loose
    When you looked at me and said you had it all
    But what you did; it’s not unforgivable
    But forgivable
    But what you did; it’s not unforgivable
    But forgivable

  • Title:Liar, Liar

    Lyrics:Show Lyrics

    1. Verse:
    Can’t see you anymore
    You’re an inch out the door
    Didn’t know no I didn’t know what I do know now
    With the words we then trade
    You respond and let them fade
    and I just won’t let you bring me down
    You can see what I know and I know
    Somewhere there’s a sorry

    Oh tell me why these roads keep leading
    Leading you right back to me

    Chorus:
    Liar liar
    don’t cry on my shoulder
    You played with fire and smiled when you told her
    Woah oh oh oh oh
    thought you were someone
    Woah oh oh oh oh
    goodbye to no one

    2. Verse:
    So break away your touch
    The bliss you miss so much
    But I won’t tell you to come back home
    Emotions disapate
    With love designed to hate
    Keep on driving away from here
    I don’t reach as it falls in your hands
    Was it big enough the storm

    Tell me why these roads keep leading
    Leading you right back

    Chorus:
    Liar liar
    don’t cry on my shoulder
    You played with fire and smiled when you told her
    Woah oh oh oh oh
    I thought you were someone
    Woah oh oh oh oh
    goodbye to no one

    3. Verse:
    I don’t need to know you’ll be there
    You’re not on my mind
    I don’t need to know you care
    Please don’t waste my time

    Chorus:
    Liar liar
    don’t cry on my shoulder
    You played with fire and smiled when you told her
    Liar liar
    don’t cry on my shoulder
    You played with fire and smiled when you told her
    Woah oh oh oh oh
    thought you were someone
    Woah oh oh oh oh
    goodbye to no one
    Woah oh oh oh oh
    thought you were someone
    Woah oh oh oh oh
    goodbye to no one

    1. Verse:
    I was happy the way I was
    then you asked if I wanted Angel Dust
    at first it sounded good to me
    but then i saw the reality

    Chorus:
    You say you feel like you’re on Cloud Nine
    but it’s just a waste of time
    take your airplane and fly away
    take your game ’cause I won’t play

    2. Verse:
    Give me life, not your bones
    i want difference, not your clones
    drop the bomb on me instead
    but i refuse to be misled

    Chorus:
    You say you feel like you’re on Cloud Nine
    but it’s just a waste of time
    take your airplane and fly away
    take your game ’cause I won’t play

    3. Verse:
    The wind blows away the smoke
    the damage is still inside
    I’m not too crazy ’bout the choices you provoke
    I won’t fall to this life you decide

    Chorus:
    You say you feel like you’re on Cloud Nine
    but it’s just a waste of time
    take your airplane and fly away
    take your game ’cause I won’t play

    You say you feel like you’re on Cloud Nine
    but it’s just a waste of time
    take your airplane and fly away
    take your game ’cause I won’t play

    Fin:
    I won’t take anything you see
    ’cause I wanna stay free

    Lyrics:Show Lyrics

    1. Verse:
    We all have those moments
    the ones we just can’t explain
    the real world is in slow motion
    as you feel the piercing pain
    feels like the rain is pouring down
    no one else can hear the sound
    just remember
    he will give you a happy ever after

    Chorus:
    Life’s like a book
    we flip through the pages
    the good the bad
    the happy and the sad
    and somewhere in between
    pray that you’ll have piece of mind
    he’ll answer it just give it time
    surely he will stop those games in the mind

    2. Verse:
    Try to hold them back
    the tears that lie inside
    the scares you hide
    your hands are tied
    you scream but you have no voice
    shattered still a hopeful heart
    you’re always safe from harm
    wherever you fall
    you’re always in his arms

    Chorus:
    Life’s like a book
    we flip through the pages
    the good the bad
    the happy and the sad
    and somewhere in between
    pray that you’ll have piece of mind
    he’ll answer it just give it time
    surely he will stop those games in the mind

    3. Verse:
    The struggles we all go through
    the pain will subside
    don’t you start thinking your dreams won’t
    ever come true

    Chorus:
    Life’s like a book
    we flip through the pages
    the good the bad
    the happy and the sad
    and somewhere in between
    pray that you’ll have piece of mind
    he’ll answer it just give it time
    surely he will stop those games in the mind

    Lyrics:Show Lyrics

    1. Verse:
    I don’t care what they say
    gotta gotta get away
    nothing else left but my pain
    looking left ,checking right
    don’t wanna fall cause I’ll lose the fight
    making sure you stay in sight

    Prechorus:
    Staying right on time,
    kinda busy, lose my mind
    I’m steppin across the line
    Because it’s just too late
    don’t wanna feel this way
    why can’t I just stay inside

    Chorus:
    Catching up is the hardest part of following you
    tripping up is what you want me to do
    time’s almost up
    you need to bring me back
    I got way too much on my mind
    I think that’s why i’m falling behind

    2 Verse:
    Seems like your picking up speed
    now your the one in the lead
    try hard not to plead;
    why doesn’t anyone understand me?
    I don’t know what to do
    I’m not over you
    I’m going crazy inside
    my pride is overdue

    Prechorus:
    Misleading time
    distracted lose my mind
    I’m stepping across the line
    Because it’s just too late
    don’t wanna feel this way
    why can’t i just stay inside

    (Chorus)

    Bridge:
    I’m so distracted, don’t know what to do
    about this now..
    I’m losing tactics
    will someone show me how?

    (Chorus x2)

    Lyrics:Show Lyrics

    1. Verse:
    It’s hard to understand why
    I never understood it myself
    I reached out my hand and you just
    pushed it aside

    I thought I could pick up the pieces
    but I fell when i tried
    I try my best to let it go
    to let it fall away from me

    Prechorus:
    Its hard to breathe
    underwater
    and that’s where I am and
    I know that you
    just don’t care
    cause it’s where you found me

    Chorus:
    You breathe air and I breathe fire
    and now I’m suffocating
    I’m the victim now and you’re the liar
    because your mouth’s so full of it
    and I just can’t believe
    there’s more than one thing about you
    that I love

    2. Verse:
    The melodies I’m hearing
    they slowly fade away with you
    the pain is so surreal
    I find myself fighting to keep control

    The pieces of my heart you stole
    they’re gone forever just like us
    Iv’e tried so hard to move on
    the world feels frozen suddenly

    (Prechorus)

    (Chorus)

    3. Verse:
    My heart can’t take this
    I’m not for your gain
    my mind won’t erase the past
    it’s driving me insane

    Chorus:
    You breathe air and I breathe fire
    and now I’m suffocating
    I’m the victim now and you’re the liar
    because your mouth’s so full of it

    Air and I breathe fire
    and now i’m suffocating
    I’m the victim now and you’re the liar
    because your mouth’s so full of it
    and I just can’t believe
    there’s more than one thing about you
    that I love

    I just can’t believe
    there’s more then one thing about you
    that i love

    I just can’t believe (it’s driving me insane….)
    there’s more then one thing about you
    that I love
