These poems are all inspired by songs recorded by well-known Artists. It is a varied collection, exploring many feelings, but all have one thing in comment. They were all created by a bipolar writer. I’ve never taken my condition literally. Why Bother? Nothing can change me, I am what I am and, sometimes, that reflects in my work. Love or hate it, you may or may not find a thread to relate to but, regardless of that, sometimes poems just want to be written, and that’s all there is to it.


For the Dreamers, not the Doers x



All You Are

(Inspired by ‘Waiting for Superman’ by Daughtry)


I’m wishing my days away on a silly dream

I’ve been, flogging a dead horse or, now, so it seems

I’ve seen, a million dreamers with that faraway stare

Like they lost it somewhere and now it’s stranded out there

They’re like, trying just as hard they’re the same as me, it comes naturally

And I laugh, oh, do I laugh

They’re pushing at boundaries, they’re leaving their mark

They’re blazing a trail through the endless dark

Keep moving towards it, to follow their star, trying to be all that they truly are

They’ll go far, yeah; they’ll go far, yeah

Be all that they truly are


So, where do I take it when I’ve worked it out, what’s it’s all about?

I need, to get my feet back onto more solid ground, try and turn this round

I hear, a million losers as they tell the same lie, like they’re too scared to try

But they just never know why

They’re like, pushing aside they’re only open door, but I know there’s more

So, I laugh, oh, the way I laugh

Yeah, I’m pushing at boundaries, I’m leaving my mark

I’m blazing a trail through the endless dark

Keep moving towards it, to follow my star; I try to be all that they truly are

And I’ll go far, yeah; I’ll go far, yeah

Be all that they truly are

To reach the heights, and finally get on top, I hold on tight, cuz it won’t ever stop

So, let’s go, while I can make it that far, to be all they truly are

And I laugh

Still pushing at boundaries, still leaving a mark

Still blazing my trail through the endless dark

Still moving towards it, to follow my star; still trying to be everything they are

So I’ll go far, yeah; oh, I’ll go far, yeah

Be all that they truly are

To reach the heights, and finally be on top, hold on tight, oh, now I’ll never stop

So, let’s go, while I can make it that far

Be all that you truly are


Back For More

(Inspired by ‘The One That Got Away’ by Katy Perry)


I sat and wrote a song while thinking of you

I recall the way you saved me, right out of the blue

I’d been there a while but you were shooting through

You talked about the future, like you knew the score

You were all I really needed, stood at your door

And you never would have guessed that I’d be back for more

Now it’s gone too far, and I can’t let you go

I found you there inside of me and have let you know

Now it’s gone too far, I would risk it all

This is how you make me feel, so love me like before

Please come back for more


I nearly did, a thousand times, but never made that call

It was more than just a feeling, which I realised in the fall

When I think about it, you’re the answer to it all, yeah

You filled in all the spaces as we partied all night

Then you said you loved me and brought me alive

Being there beside you is how I want to spend my time

Now you’ve gone too far, I can’t let you go

I found you there inside of me and I should let you know

Now you’ve gone too far, we could win for sure

If this is how I make you feel then love me like before

Please come back for more

Come back, come back, come back

Please come back for more


So now I have to show you what you mean to me, whoa

Here’s my heart and love, I hope they help you see, whoa

That maybe, honey, we were meant to be, whoa

And here’s the reason why

Now we’ve gone too far, I can’t let you go

I find you there inside my heart so I should let you know

Now we’ve gone too far, I will give my all

This is how you make me feel so love me all the more

Love me like before

Come back, come back, come back

Now we’ve come this far, we will win for sure

Keep me there inside your heart and love me like before

Please come back for more


Breakdown

(Inspired by ‘Showdown’ by ELO)


I died but I’m coming round, I still don’t know what this is all about

I silent scream when I should shout out loud

I’m heading for a breakdown

This ride is a one-way fare, leaves me stranded on my own somewhere

When I turn there’ll be no one there

I’m heading for a breakdown

And I’m trying but I’m never heard, just trying, but I’m never heard

The end, is this the end?


I’d run but I’m fading fast, so I dance just to dodge the blast

I don’t know how long I’m gonna last

I’m heading for a breakdown

Free me, free me, it’s a real misery

There’s gonna be a breakdown

So I’m trying but I’m never heard, just trying, but I’m never heard

The end, is this the end?


Trying, Trying

Trying, but you’re never heard

Trying, but you’re never heard

It’s not the end

And I’m trying but I’m never heard

I’m trying but I’m never heard

Is this not the end?


I’ve gotta let it go, cuz now I’m waiting for change

I can’t do this no more, I just need to believe

Then I can be free, that’s why I gotta be so hard on myself now

I’m all alone again

I gotta stay strong


But There

(Inspired by Lost Without Your Love by Bread)


Hollow and so cold

Lost inside a world where everything seems old

Falling to my knees then knowing I’ll survive

Cuz somehow I’m alive, but I’m still falling all the time

I’m feeling left behind

Walk away from all the words that seem unkind

Hold my head up, so I never let it go

I’ll put that dream on show, and let everybody know

I’m living anywhere, but there

Holding out to find a way to show I care

Standing in the darkness, lost and alone, I’m never reaching home

It’s all I’ve ever known

But, until I see that day, I’ll have to find another way


So it’s all a shame to me

Close my eyes, and there’s another place to be

If only I could see, I’ve been running on the spot

They have when I have not

Now is the time to take that shot

But, until I know I can, I’m gonna need another plan


Cry

(Inspired by ‘Life After You’ by Daughtry)


At this time of day, there is just no way, for me to ask if you wanted to stay

You’re walking away, from all that we say, watching my world as it starts to decay

Hold on, I have to say something, right now, as we become nothing

As you were lying and when I started crying, there’s one thing you just didn’t know

Let me say that, if this is our ending, then I’m not pretending

I’m putting my feelings on show, and I’ll cry till the moment you go


Don’t know why you stay, if you feel that way, I’m not the one who you needed to find

You met her someplace, now dream of her face, seeing it there in the back of your mind

Go on, I dare you deny it, right here, I wish you would try it

As you keep lying and when I resume crying, there’s one thing you just didn’t know

Let me say that, if this is our ending, then I’m not pretending

I’m putting my feelings on show, and I’ll cry till the moment you go


What have I got to do, just to get it through to you?

You are the love of my life

But here we are, and I try but I just don’t see how, you could turn and leave me now

You’re walking away from your wife

But I see you gotta do this

As you keep lying and I carry on trying, hell, you can sure deal a blow, yeah

As you keep lying and I carry on crying, there’s one thing I think you should know

Let me say that, if this is our ending, then I’m not pretending

I’m putting my feelings on show, yeah

I’ll cry till the moment you go, I’ll cry till the moment you go

I’ll cry till the moment you go, I’ll cry till the moment you go

I’ll cry till the moment you go, I’ll cry till the moment you go

I’ll cry till the moment you go, I’ll cry till the moment you go, yeah


Darkness Below

(Inspired by: Le Onde by Einaudi)


Carry me; carry me down to the shore

Treasure me; treasure me, never, no more

Holding me, holding me, just let me go

Down to the, down to the darkness below

Calling me, calling me, calling me, calling me

Calling me, calling me home

Calling me, calling me, calling me, calling me

Calling me, calling me home

Follow me, follow me love if you dare

This is the, this is the fate that we share

Wait for you; wait for you down on our shore

We’ll not fear the shadows, I swear

For you know that I’ll always be there

Sink, and then I rise, and then I roll, and then I dive

And then I sink, and then I rise, and then I roll, and then I dive, again

I’m sinking in the sea of love which you created

Drowning in the life we shared so now it’s time you

Be with me; be with me just like before

Come with me, come with me down to our shore

Then you’ll be, then you’ll be nearer to me

Down on our, down on our beach by the sea

I’m calling you, calling you, calling you, calling you

Calling you, calling you home

I’m calling you, calling you, calling you, calling you

Calling you, calling you home


Seeing you, seeing you standing right there

Knowing the, knowing the love that we share

Taking us, taking us far from our shore

The shadows we fear, the ones that come near

May save us the same as before

Sink, and then we rise, and then we roll, and then we dive

And then we sink, and then we rise, and then we roll, and then we dive

Calling us, calling us, calling us, calling us

Calling us, calling us, calling us, calling us home


Eyes Are Blue

(Inspired by No One Knows But You by Beth Nielsen Chapman)


When I heard you, heard you singing, you somehow raised me, into the blue

The day you saved me, saved me from drowning, that’s when I knew

My dream came true

Angel’s eyes are blue, I see them every night

Angel’s eyes, my angel’s eyes are blue


When I’m falling, falling quickly, you remind me, to not let go

You stand beside me, without you knowing, we share a light, as you know

Angel’s eyes are blue, I see them every night

Angel’s eyes, my angel’s eyes are blue


Sometimes when things are tragic, when life don’t work out right

I know I can’t surrender, I know I have to fight

Your presence is all that’s needed, the strength to help me stand

Though you are never here I feel your spirit take my hand

My angel’s eyes are blue, I see them every night

My angel’s eyes

Are blue


Faith in Me

(Inspired by ‘Over You’ by Daughtry)


I sit and study your face; you look so lost and out of place

Yet here we are, we’ve come this far, I think we’re gonna win this race

If your knees hit the floor, just like they did that time before

I’ll take you hand, I’ll help you stand, then we’re gonna head for Wonderland

In all the years I’ve know you, and all the things we’ve been through, we somehow kept us going

Though we’ve never really shown it, and very nearly blown it, pushing us, pushing us back

Wishing to rewind it, seeing more behind it, we’ll forge a new beginning

We’re holding on and hoping, acting like we’re coping, showing the world that we’re winning

I’m trying hard to make you believe, just have some faith in me


This life’s the mother of all rides; will sweep us up within its tide

We play the game, it’s just a shame, now it’s time we pick a side

I’d make more changes just for you, but I can’t change the things you do

We fall apart, feel from the heart, but find a way to make that dream come true

Cuz in all the years I’ve know you, and all the things we’ve been through

We somehow kept us going

Though we’ve never really shown it, and very nearly blown it, pushing us, pushing us back

Wishing to rewind it, seeing from behind it, we’ll forge a new beginning

We’re holding on and hoping, acting like we’re coping, showing the world that we’re winning

I’m trying hard to make you believe, just have faith in me


In all the years I’ve know you, and all the things we’ve been through, we somehow keep us going

Though I’ve never really shown it, and very nearly blown it, pushing you, pushing you back

In all the years I’ve know you, and all the things we’ve been through, we somehow keep us going

Though you’ve never really shown it, and very nearly blown it, pushing me, pushing me back

Wishing to rewind it, seeing more behind it, we’ll forge a new beginning

We’re holding on and hoping, acting like we’re coping, showing the world that we’re winning

See, we’re showing the world that we’re winning

So have some faith in me

Have some faith in me

Have some faith in me

I’m trying here to make you believe, so have some faith in me


Guiding Light

(Inspired by Sand and Water by Beth Nielsen Chapman)


Turn away now, all those doubting faces

Turn away now, the saddened eyes

Turn away now, don’t hear the weeping

Though it’s sweeping all across those sullen skies

Turn away now, if it sounds familiar

Turn away so you can sleep at night

Take the chance, and see, I’m there with you, honey

I’m there with you, so I’ll be your guiding light

So now you think that the world has abandoned you

So now you feel that no one’s ever there

So now you see we’re the same, coz we are the same

Find the arms, the ones that care


Turn away now, all you whispered voices

Turn away now, lest you hear

On the edge, you’ll be spoilt with all your choices

It’s not a fight, when there’s not much for you to fear

So now you think that the world has abandoned you

So now you feel that no one’s ever there

So now you see we’re the same, coz we are the same

Find the arms, the ones that care


Turn away now, if it sounds familiar

Turn away so you can sleep at night

Take the chance, and see, I’m there with you, honey

I’m there with you, so I’ll be your guiding light


Honestly

(Inspired by Going Down In Flames by 3 Doors Down)


I can’t be left lonely, why can’t I touch you, honestly?

You make it way too easy when you decide you’re gonna call

I’m pacing by my phone, cuz I know you won’t be on your own

It kills me just to know – this time, oh yeah

I’m calling out your name I need ya to be here with me, yeah

I’m calling out your name I need ya to be here with me, oh yeah


It’s what we’ve both needed, a way to find out if we care

It’s what you want to make it, you know I’ll never let it go

Pacing by your phone cuz ya know I might not be alone

It kills ya not to know – this time, oh yeah

I’m calling out your name I need ya to be here with me, yeah

I’m calling out your name I need ya to be here with me, oh yeah


See – all the pain I feel, it’s rising up inside of me

All the pain I feel, it’s rising up inside me now

It’s rising inside me, it’s rising inside me

It’s rising inside me now


I’m calling out your name I need ya to be here with me, yeah

I’m calling out your name I need ya to be here with me, oh yeah


See – all the pain I feel, it’s rising up inside of me

All the pain I feel, it’s rising up inside me

It’s rising, now


If Life’s a Bitch

(Inspired by Everything Back But You by Avril Lavigne)


The last time I saw you, you looked like hell, saying that you’re gonna be okay

Standing beside you, in your empty shell, and I couldn’t think of anything to say

You’re floating through a dream, and there’s nothing in-between

So I wanna know just how you’re gonna change that

I tried to make you see, make you have some faith in me

It’s time to see exactly how you’ll change that

Cuz all I know

You could have been more, a change to before, not crashed on the floor

So please don’t say you’ll never make it

Okay, so now you’ll say, I’ve just gone and screwed your day

So now you see that life’s a bitch, if life’s a bitch, then so am I


Making wrong choices, is a dumb reply, cuz you’ll always be running out of time

Your open frustration makes you wanna cry, and you never seem to reach that finish line

You’re floating through a dream, and there’s nothing in-between

So I wanna know just how you’re gonna change that

Don’t let it drag you down, got to turn that doubt around

You know that’s how you, how you gotta play it

Cuz all I know

There’s always a way, a reason to stay, just hear when I say

The chance is there for you to take it

Okay, so now you’ll say, I’ve just gone and screwed your day

So now you see that life’s a bitch, if life’s a bitch, then so am I


You’re floating through a dream, and there’s nothing in-between

So I wanna know just how you’re gonna change that

I tried to make you see, make you have some faith in me

It’s time to see exactly how you’ll change that

Cuz all I know

You could have been more, a change to before, not crashed on the floor

So please don’t say you’ll never make it

Okay, so now you’ll say, I’ve just gone and screwed your day

So now you see that life’s a bitch, if life’s a bitch, then so am I

If life’s a bitch, then so am I


Just Jump

(Inspired by Go Down by Daughtry)


Play as you hope to play, play, play it just like a game

Play like you like to play, play, no, it’s never the same

This is the end of the line; see it, without a name

So let’s jump, just jump, cuz you’re never, no, you’re never to blame, blame


We waste a lifetime, keeping up with the beat

Now put your foot down, yeah, if you hope to compete

This is a call sign, if you need a repeat

Then forge a cut through, before you’re lost in the heap, heap


Call, call it what you want, call it all your reasons to be

Stall, stalling all the moves, only moving up by degrees

This is the end of the line, now you’re down on your knees

So let’s jump, just jump, cuz there’s nothing, no, there’s nothing to see, see


You’ll waste a lifetime, keeping up with the beat

So put your foot down, now your world is complete

This was a call sign, if you want a repeat

Go forge a cut through, now you hope to compete

Now you hope to compete; now you hope to compete

Now you hope to compete; now you hope to compete

Now you hope to compete


We waste a lifetime, keeping up with the beat

Just put your foot down, yeah, now you feel you’re complete

This was a call sign, do you need a repeat?

So forge a cut through, before you’re last on the heap

Before you’re last on the heap, before you’re last on the heap

Before you’re last on the heap, before you’re last on the heap

Before you’re last on the heap, heap


Lift Me Up

(Inspired by ‘Catch My Breath’ by Kelly Clarkson)


There's a time when I wouldn’t dare, take the chance just to go nowhere

But it’s safe to say we’ve been there

I’ve seen, some kind of ride

Holding tight, never looking down, always scared that I’ll hit the ground

Lining up for another round

It’s been, some kind of tide


Lifting me up, helping me see, all that I am and all I’m striving to be

Try as I might, I never break through, to follow my star then I have to stay true

Lift me up, I need to let this go, I’m finally in the flow

Lift me up, just need a helping hand, the one to help me stand

Wasted time on a silly dream, all alone somewhere in-between

Now I know what it really means, I’ve known, right from the start

Running fast, though I never move, finding something I need to prove

Fighting on even if I lose, just like I’ve done, playing my part


Lifting me up, helping me see, all that I am and all I’m striving to be

Try as I might, I never break through, to follow my star then I have to stay true

Lift me up, I need to let this go, I’m finally in the flow

Lift me up, just need a helping hand, the one to help me stand


I try to find, the answer, in all I do


Lifting me up, helping me see, all that I am and all I’m striving to be

Try as I might, I never break through, to follow my star then I have to stay true

Lifting me up, helping me see, all that I am and all I’m striving to be

Try as I might, I never break through, to follow my star then I have to stay true

Lift me up, I need to let this go, I’m finally in the flow

Lift me up, just need a helping hand, the one to help me stand, the one to help me stand

Lifting me up, helping me see, all that I am and all I’m striving to be

Try as I might, I never break through, to follow my star then I have to stay true

Lift me up, I need to let this go, I’m finally in the flow

Lift me up, just need a helping hand, the one to help me stand


Missing You

(Inspired by Telephone Line by ELO)


Goodbye, I’ll miss you

Thought of us last night, and all our crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy times

Man, what a blast, but now it’s fading fast, are ya sure you’ve thought this through, yeah

So, hey, are ya happy?

Well, did it come out right? Do ya have the life ya want, ya want, ya want?

Oh, for me, there’s no end, so why the hell pretend, or try to hide the way I feel

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, ooh-ooh-ooh


Now what, now I’m on the spot? Now what do I do?

You’re there, I’m here? Now what do I do?

I hang my head to cry, I’m gonna miss the love you gave to me

I’ll beg another try, I’ll ask you to come back and stay with me

Oh, no, it hurts the same, when I call your name

There’s nothing but silence

So, so where do I start? I’m missing your heart

There’s nothing but silence


So, hey, they say you’re travelling, a thousand miles a day, but never back my way, my way

Oh-ooh, this breaks my heart, has done right from the start, now I can’t see you anymore

Yeah, yeah, yeah, ooh-ooh-ooh


Now what, now I’m on the spot? Now what do I do?

You’re there, I’m here. Now what do I do?

I hang my head to cry, I’m gonna miss the love you gave to me

I’ll beg another try, I’ll ask you to come back and stay with me

Oh, no, it hurts the same, when I call your name

There’s nothing but silence

So, so where do I start? I’m missing your heart

There’s nothing but silence

Oh, no, it hurts the same, when I call your name

There’s nothing but silence

So, so where do I start? I’m missing your heart

There’s nothing but silence


On the Bridge

(Inspired by Clown by Emily Santé)


You wanna know what I’m like without you, I’m in scattered pieces on the floor

And just when I think I might be nearer, well, I realise, I am no closer than before

When I wish it, you know where I’ll be standing; close enough to hold you every day

I swear I’d give you every single moment

Being the sunshine to keep those darkening skies far away

I’ll take your hand, we’ll make it right, it’s kinda scary, I’ll admit this, and you will too

Like I told you, I’ll take your hand, I won’t leave you lonely

This love’s a crazy free-fall, a downhill snowball, we’re holding on tonight


Is there a part of you that’s always pretending, find some courage in your battered heart

We’ll have it all if we just keep trying

And all those dreams we have will no longer be so far apart

I’ll take your hand, we’ll make it right, it’s kinda scary, I’ll admit this, and you will too

Like I told you, I’ll take your hand, I won’t leave you lonely

This love’s a crazy free-fall, a downhill snowball, we’re holding on tonight


We’ll find a way to bridge this gulf between us

We’ll find a way, no matter what they say

And if you doubt me just recall the path we take, and I so hope that you feel this, you’re so far away

I’ll take your hand, we’ll make it right, it’s kinda scary, I’ll admit this, and you will too

Like I told you, I’ll take your hand, I won’t leave you lonely

This love’s a crazy free-fall, a downhill snowball, we’re holding on tonight


Over is Fine

(Inspired by ‘What about Now’ by Daughtry)


As I stand to look at you, I see your heart is breaking

All the things we said were true, so it wasn’t faking

If this love is all we are, we wouldn’t make it far

Kissing teardrops from your face, I hate to see you crying

I would gladly take your place, inside something’s dying

Seems we’re standing here again, along with all the pain, and we just don’t know

So what will you do now; will you turn to go?

How can you walk away, from all that you’ve ever known?

If this is it, and it really ends this way

How will I make it through, knowing I’m not with you?

Saying we’re over is fine, now what do we do?


I couldn’t take one day alone, if I couldn’t see you

You’re the reason I come home, cuz I know I need you

I think it’s time we spin us round, so we can touch the ground, cuz I just found out

The only thing to do; so you never turn to go

Is never to walk away, from all that we’ve ever known?

I love you so much; it should never end this way

How will you make it through, knowing I’m not with you?

Saying we’re over is fine, now what do we do?

Do we just go? Do we give up on us and turn away?

Or could we be stronger, and fight for our love, one more time?

I know that we’re worth it now


What will you do; when you turn to go?

Are you prepared to leave, all that you’ve ever known?

I love you so much, there has to be a way

How will you make it through, when I’m not at home for you?

So what do you do, do you turn to go?

Can you just walk away, from all that you’ve ever known?

I love you so much, so I thought you felt the same

How will you make it through, knowing I’m lost to you?

Saying we’re over is fine, saying we’re over is fine, saying we’re over is fine

Now what do we do?


Please Believe

(Inspired by Don’t Know What To Say by Beth Nielsen Chapman)


My words get in the way, when words won’t get me by

I see you standing there; you’re lost without a care

And all you do is cry

There’s nowhere left to run, so still can’t run away

So fight another day, just turn and face the sun

As if to turn and say

I will not lay me down to die, while there is time I have to try

There’s always another bluer sky, waiting on you

Please, believe, my word is true


We don’t have to say goodbye, coz I’m right there by your side

And when you think I’m not, I’m all the strength you’ve got

So wear our love with pride

You’ll never be alone, I’ll never be afar

I’ll comfort through the tears, treasure through the years

Though we are far apart

For I must lay me down to die, but there is time for you to try

There’s always another bluer sky, waiting on you

Please, believe, my word is true, I wouldn’t lie to you

You’re all the world I knew

Please, believe, my word, is true


Right from the Start

(Inspired by Every December Sky by Beth Nielsen Chapman)


When I’m alone to cry, I end up on my knees

So I can cry the way I please

For dreamers must play our part

And play our part we do

But life is a part we play right from the start

But life is a part we play right from the start


I’ll see you at Heaven’s gate; we’ll take a walk awhile

So then I’ll be showered in your smile

I’m starting another day, which always feels the same

Even without a flame I know there is more

Why can’t I take that step through my open door?


So looking at my life, I can see

All the other people I should be


I’m carrying on somehow, below my sullen sky

Though I am almost lost, I’m going to try

You are the strength that lifts me, when down on my knees to cry


Time

(Inspired by ‘Home’ by Daughtry)


I do the same miles in my life; I’m going around and round

I think it’s time I make that change; cuz change is good but I guess I’ll never know

Less I make that move and travel with the flow

This is my time, and I’ve waited far too long, but staying strong is all it really takes

I’ve made mistakes, but I try to give myself a break

I’m trying to find the place where I belong

So I’ll keep waiting for the moment when it’s mine

Cuz now is my time, now is my time


They say that history repeats itself; it turns us right around

It’s not always been the dream I had in mind, I’ve been kinda blind

So I, end up like before, trying to tell myself I know there’s more

Now is my time, and I’ve waited far too long, but staying strong is all it really takes

I’ve made mistakes, but I try to give myself a break

I’m trying to find the place where I belong

So I’ll keep waiting on the moment till it’s mine


I keep hoping that I find it, but it just might never come, it just might never come

But what else can I do?

I’m waiting on the moment, but it just might never come, it just might never come, yeah


Oh, this is my time, and I’ve waited far too long, but staying strong is all it really takes

I’ve made mistakes, but I try to give myself a break

I’m trying to find the place where I belong

So, I’ll keep waiting for the moment when it’s mine

Yeah, I’m waiting on that moment when it’s mine, cuz now is my time

Now is my time


Tornado

(Inspired by ‘When I’m Gone’ by 3 Doors Down)


I take care of everything that I could ever need

The deepest cuts remind me I still bleed

I watch the world through tired eyes, amazed I made it through

I hope it wasn’t all in vain, again, to have this dream come true

To have this dream come true


Don’t hold me back this time, let me see the light

I’ve got to take this chance. I need to win this fight

It’ll never be the same cuz now I’m in control

Now I’m claiming back all the parts of me you stole

With my back against the wall, you left me with no pride

I walked away encasing a broken soul inside

Don’t hold me back this time; I need to see the light

I gotta take the chance, maybe get a final glance

I just need to win this fight

I need to win this fight


After everything I struggle to remember who I am

If it wasn’t so important then I would not give a damn

I’m waiting for the moment I can hold my head up high

And even if I fall again, I know I have to try


Win this fight, win this fight

Win this fight, win this fight


Unending

(Inspired by ‘Can’t Fight This Feeling’ by REO Speedwagon)


Spinning in the darkness I reside in, falling at this speed, I let it go

I’m missing every moment as I tumble; I’m stranded far above the ones I see below

So your secrets wouldn’t hurt me, if you never told the lie

And I’ll never find the answer, doesn’t matter how I try

But seeing you there I can tell that we’ll say goodbye

So there’s no point in fighting for this love

Not when it seems you’ve finally given up

You know you’ll never help me through the tough, if you can’t take the rough

Honey, there’s no point in fighting for this love


There’s a day in life that I can still remember

When all I knew was you and your embrace

But turning back the pages, there’s a moment

When our love was nearly over, torn apart without a trace

Although the flame is dying, I’m still keeping mine alight

It’s all I have around me, to hold me through the night

When you took a fall, with my call you could challenge the fight

But there’s no point in trying to make you see

Not when there’s never any room for me

We left the ones we used to try to be, our depleted history, unending

So there’s no point in calling out my name

Not when I finally beat you at your game

You see it wasn’t just about the blame, and it never ends the same

Honey, there’s no point in calling out my name

(Inspired by ‘Let Me Go’ by Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger)


I came round to find you were gone

The dream I remember, I try to surrender

It sounds like a line from a song

And comes with the heartbreak; the one that I can’t take

Oh, I wish you’d left right back at the start, I knew you’d go too far

Those things we swore, they don’t count no more, gonna walk away, just walk away

Your words were lies, just the same as mine, so I’ll walk away, just walk away

Oh-oh, oh-oh


I love how we both took the fall

The screwing and fighting, how you made it exciting

Caught in the thrill of it all

Grew sick of you bating me, you’ll wind up hating me

Oh, I wish I’d left right back at the start, I knew you’d go too far

Those things we swore, they don’t count no more, gonna walk away, just walk away

Your words were lies, just the same as mine, so I’ll walk away, just walk away


We grew as one, and now we’re done, this thing we had, was not for fun

Why did it end, could we be more, I see it now, just like before

I wish we’d go right back to the start, there’s nothing like too far

Those things we swore, they still count for sure, can’t walk away, won’t walk away

And now it’s time that we realise, won’t walk away, can’t walk away

No-oh, no-no, oh-no, oh-no

Don’t walk away, don’t walk away, don’t walk away, don’t walk away, oh-oh, oh-no


Can’t walk away, don’t walk away, don’t walk away, can’t walk away

Don’t walk away, won’t walk away, won’t walk away, don’t walk away


Until Now

(Inspired by All I Have by Beth Nielsen Chapman)


That was how you left us, just hanging by a thread

You could never mend this, coz to you our love is dead

I was counting our moments lost, for this is what your loving cost

Until now I felt alive, what if I never want to say goodbye

But then I saw it in your eyes, we’re the reason you have never tried


You made all the wrong moves, whenever or never

Though you shouldn’t take the blame

You see it now, so I hope maybe you’ll remember

That we weren’t a silly game

This is where we cross our line, just as we have a million times

Until now I felt alive, what if I never want to say goodbye

But then I saw it in your eyes, we’re the reason you have never tried


Whoa, you like to turn it round; you make me wanna cry out loud

I know I gotta make my way alone

Until now I felt alive, what if I never want to say goodbye

But now I can see it in your eyes, we’re the reason you have never tried


We’re Done

(Inspired by ‘Pop Song’ by 3 Doors Down)


Why can’t you be something like me? I can’t work you out

You take it all and still want more, you’re greedy, of that, there’s no doubt

What you need’s what I’m trying to give, but you seem to be so blinded

What you get you get it for free, I can’t see why you’re still screaming

I can’t, give more, why do I get the feeling we’re done?

I can’t, give more, why do I get the feeling we’re done?


I tried to make that final break, but you made me stay

You won’t let me go when I tell you no, we finish this, I say

Cuz what you need’s what I’m trying to give, but you seem to be so blinded

What you get you get it for free, I can’t see why you’re still screaming

I can’t, give more, why do I get the feeling we’re done?

I can’t, give more, why do I get the feeling we’re done?

We’re done, we’re done

We’re done


I can’t, give more, why do you get the feeling we’re done?

I can’t, give more, why do you get the feeling we’re done?

I’m done

I’m done


We’re Two of A Kind

(Inspired by People Like Us by Kelly Clarkson)


This one life is all you get; and it isn’t over yet

Time is precious that’s for sure, before you know it, there’ll be no more


See, I know you’re just the same as me, hoping for some sympathy when all it does is rain

So be, the person that you long to be, the one that no one ever sees still lost behind the pain

Arh, here you go again with that same old story, always the way, little love or glory

Why can’t you stand, reach a little bit higher?

What’s there to lose when your world’s on fire?

Hey-yeah, this is your chance so don’t you dare start falling

Hey-yeah, cuz we are two of a kind, two of a kind


Whoa, don’t you ever let it go, you gotta find the dream you know, so try and stand your ground

So bright, I guess you’ve finally seen the light

It was nearly out of sight, but you can turn that round

Arh, this is the part where you get all pouty, just before the part when you get real shouty

Say what I like but you’re never gonna learn that

Being at the top is the only place to be at

Hey-yeah, I’ve had issues too, but you’ll learn to live through it

Hey-yeah, cuz we are two of a kind, two of a kind

Hey-yeah, this is your chance so don’t you dare start falling

Hey-yeah, cuz we are two of a kind, two of a kind

So let them say what they do, even though it’s not true

I know you’ve seen this before, hell, yeah, well here comes some more

Try not to rip out your hair, try now, try now, and I swear, from now on it’ll just get better


I know you’re the same as me, hoping for some sympathy when all it does is rain

Arh, here you go again with that same old story, it’s always the way, still no love and glory

Why can’t you stand, reach a little bit higher?

What’s there left to lose when your world’s on fire?

Hey-yeah, I’ve had issues too, but you’ll learn to live through it

Hey-yeah, cuz we are two of a kind, two of a kind

Hey-yeah, this is your chance so don’t you dare start falling

Hey-yeah, cuz we are two of a kind, two of a kind


You Say

(Inspired by Fake It by Seether)


Watch out there’s a problem in your way

But never let it spoil your day

Coz you can always find a way and should, yeah

This time, you’re watching while I’m leaving

This time, you’ve lost it for sure

This time, I’m alive and I’m still breathing

So what can I say as I’m closing the door?

So then you say that I never sit and listen

And you say that I crossed the line

So you pray that you make the right decision

Oh, my, God, you’re a heap of fuckin misery


Don’t shout, if you’ve got something to say

I’m not a million miles away

Though I wish that I was, so for good, yeah

This time, you’re watching while I’m leaving

This time, you’ve lost it for sure

This time, I’m alive and I’m still breathing

So what can I say as I’m closing the door?

Then you say that I never sit and listen

And you say that I crossed the line

So you pray that you make the right decision

Oh, my, God, you’re a heap of fuckin misery

Oh, my, God


You can say what you want about anything

You can say what you want, I don’t care

You can say what you want, if it’s anything

Would you even dare?


Watch out there’s a problem in your way

But never let it spoil your day

Coz you can always find a way and should, I’m right

This time, you’re watching while I’m leaving

This time, you’ve lost it for sure

This time, I’m alive and I’m still breathing

So what can I say as I’m closing the door?

Then you say that I never sit and listen

And you say that I crossed the line

So you pray that you make the right decision

Oh, my, God, you’re a heap of fuckin misery

You say that I never sit and listen

And you say that I crossed the line

So you pray that you made the right decision

Oh, my, God, you’re a heap of fuckin misery


You’re All I See

(Inspired by I Hope You Dance by Lee Ann Womack)


I remember how I feel when you are leaving

When you walk away it feels like I’m not breathing

I always watch your face till we are finally parted

When I turned away that’s when my teardrops started

You’re the heart of me and I wouldn’t be without you

Whatever wall we face I know we’ll always get through

And my faith in you is strong enough to carry me

So if you asked me now I’d tell you honestly

You’re all I see, you’re all I see


I know you’re always there when I’m looking for a shoulder

And you wrap round me when the nights are growing colder

It’s the little things I miss when I feel lonely

That is how I know you are my one and only

I treasure every moment we’re together

I’ll be at your side in every kind of weather

So, if you doubt me just remember this was meant to be

And if you ask me now I’ll tell you honestly

You’re all I see, you’re all I see

You have my heart sat in the palm of your hand and it’s where it’s meant to be

You’re all I see, you’re all I see

I know the years to come will be much easier to face if you’re standing there by me


You’re the heart of me and I wouldn’t be without you

Whatever wall we face I know we’ll always get through

And my faith in you is strong enough to carry me

So if you ask me now I’ll tell you honestly

See, you’re all I see, you’re all I see, you’re all I see

You have my heart sat in the palm of your hand and it’s where it’s meant to be

You’re all I see, you’re all I see

I know the years to come will be much easier to face if you’re standing there by me

I know the years to come will be much easier to face if you’re standing there by me
