Track Name: Not Today
Not Today

I’m gonna walk away like I don’t really care
When the truth is that I really do
If I didn’t care I’d watch it all burn down
Till all that’s left are ashes

Hold on to this one last piece of pride
My dignity, the hope that is inside
I fall back, will myself not to cry
If he doesn’t care, why should I?

I don’t wanna be the one to say goodbye again
And I don’t want to be the one down on her knees again
I don’t wanna be some rumor on the street
The girl who gave everything away
No, not today

You think I’m in the mood to play your silly games
When the truth is that I’m really not
When the pictures are black and white you color them in
It makes you think you’ve got everything

Cause you will see that I am made of steel
No brick, no wood- I cannot crumble
But I will

I don’t wanna be the one to say goodbye again
I don’t want to be the one down on her knees again

I know you think you can knock me down
But I’ll rise and come back around
To tell you I don’t wanna be used
To tell you I’m already bruised
Black and blue

I don’t wanna be the one to say goodbye again
I don’t want to be the one down on her knees again
I don’t wanna be some rumor on the street
The girl who gave everything away
No, not today
Track Name: Grow Up
Grow Up

Through the years I've said “I know,” and
“Don't worry, I'll try to grow up,” but
The truth is I still have a long way to go
Innocence comes and innocence goes
I've learned some things I wish I didn’t know
But I have to, to grow up

I know there are lessons to learn
But I have all the time in the world
Just stop telling me to grow up
Maybe I don’t wanna

We learn about love and we learn about hate
We learn about things not to say
We learn about right from wrong and how to get along in life
So we don’t make the same mistakes
We learn to grow up
We learn to grow

Sometimes you hear a voice in your head
Telling you to step up and go right ahead and
Fly
Give it a try
I know there are lessons to learn
But I have all the time in the world
Just stop telling me to grow up
Maybe I don’t wanna

We learn about love and we learn about hate
We learn about things not to say
We learn about fitting in and sticking out
What individuality is all about
We learn about right from wrong and how to get along in life
So we don’t make the same mistakes

We learn to grow up
We’re learning

What if I said I wanna be five years old again?
When I was a princess who lived in a castle
Watching Backyardigans
And life was a whole lot easier

We learn about love and we learn about hate
We learn about things not to say
We learn about right from wrong and how to get along in life
So we don’t make the same mistakes
We learn about love and we learn about hate
We learn about things not to say
We learn about right from wrong and how to get along in life
So we don’t make the same mistakes

We learn to grow up
We learn to grow
Track Name: Same As The Sane
Same As The Sane

You build me up
You knock me down
You tell me that
You are proud
You go ahead
Ruin my life
I see that you are taking sides

Don’t make things better
They’re already worse

What you don’t understand is I’m tired of you hurting me
You need to learn how to leave me be
Go ahead, knock me down
Shatter those pieces to the ground
Just learn that
You’ll never be the same
Same as the sane

I know that you, you are strong
But this time you are wrong
I have to say there are a lot of times
You’ve driven me insane

Don’t make things better
They’re already worse

What you don’t understand, you don’t understand, you don’t understand
What you don’t understand, you don’t understand, you don’t understand

What you don’t understand is I’m tired of you hurting me
You need to learn how to leave me be
Go ahead, knock me down
Shatter those pieces to the ground
Just learn that
You’ll never be the same
Track Name: Apologies
Apologies

You told me I was brighter
Than any of the stars in the sky
It didn’t take me too long
To figure out it was all just a lie

And yes darling, I went through all that trouble for you
Got torn apart and you were just standing there
And now you expect me to forgive you
I don’t think so; it’s a little too late for those…

Apologies, they’re never gonna work
You think you’ve caught me now
But you haven’t
And these apologies are wrecking me inside
You know you can’t run and hide like you did before
Oh, no apologies

I remember pleading don’t go
And you saying that you had too
So off you went and never came back
You left everything behind you

And what nerve you have to come back saying sorry
And wanting me to forget everything
Don’t you know that by now
After all these years, it takes more than all of those…

Apologies, they’re never gonna work
You think you’ve caught me now
But you haven’t
And these apologies are wrecking me inside
You know you can’t run and hide
Like you did before
Oh, no apologies

So go run away, nothing left to say
You’re nothing but a traitor
Go and say it’s fair, see if I care
‘Cause I already know it’s not, and these…
Apologies, they’re never gonna work
Do you really think I’ll believe you after all this hurt?
And these apologies are like a bunch of empty words
They don’t mean anything at all

And these apologies
Are wrecking me inside
You know you can’t run and hide
Like you did before

Oh, no apologies
Apologies
Apologies

You told me I was brighter than any of the stars in the sky
Track Name: Miss Narcissist
Miss Narcissist

Someday, you’ll realize you’re not everything and
You’ll wake up from this dream and
The world will come crashing down
Miss Narcissist
Someday, you won’t get the lead in the play and
You’ll be standing at the corner of the stage and
You won’t be the center of attention
Miss Narcissist

Word is you’ve got a new friend
Her name is arrogance
You didn’t tell me `bout her
Guess you just didn’t wanna admit it
Back in elementary days you were known as the girl with the flying temper
Back in elementary days you were the drama queen

Someday, you’ll realize you’re not everything and
You’ll wake up from this dream and
The world will come crashing down
Miss Narcissist
Someday, you won’t get the lead in the play and
You’ll be standing at the corner of the stage and
You won’t be the center of attention
Miss Narcissist

You try to give me suggestions
On how to improve my ways
You should take a look at yourself
And improve your personality
You say you wanna see yourself in a movie someday
Maybe it should be a biography
Then you’d see the way you treat me

Heading for disaster, yeah you’re heading for disaster
Heading for disaster, in the wrong direction
Heading for disaster, yeah you’re heading for disaster
Heading for disaster, in the wrong direction

Someday, you’ll realize you’re not everything and
You’ll wake up from this dream and
The world will come crashing down
Miss Narcissist
Someday, you won’t get the lead in the play and
You’ll be standing at the corner of the stage and
You won’t be the center of attention
Miss Narcissist

Miss Narcissist
Miss Narcissist
Track Name: Snowflakes
Snowflakes

It’s the first Christmas I’ve ever felt this way
But it’s the last Christmas I’ll ever be the same
Drifting away like the snow outside my window
Try’na open up this heart of mine, but it remains cold

Falling apart and there’s no way to stop it
Drowning in these tears, trying to fight it
My heart is being crushed
Is it all my imagination?
What ever happened to my mistletoe ending?
I’m floating away… just like the snowflakes
Just like the snowflakes

It may be the time to spread Christmas cheer
Time for my worries to disappear
But you’re not here
Am I the only one?
Is it just me in love?
Am I a foolish girl for believing in us?

Falling apart and there’s no way to stop it
Drowning in these tears, trying to fight it
My heart is being crushed
Is it all my imagination?
What ever happened to my mistletoe ending?
I’m floating away… just like the snowflakes
Just like the snowflakes

Falling apart and there’s no way to stop it
Drowning in these tears, trying to fight it
My heart is being crushed
Is it all my imagination?
What ever happened to my mistletoe ending?
I’m floating away… just like the snowflakes
Just like the snowflakes
Just like the snowflakes
Just like the snowflakes
Just like the snowflakes
Track Name: Just Smile
Just Smile

It seems just like yesterday
When I heard you say
You couldn’t help it
I need a little time to find
What I’m looking for
Pictures of you and me
All those memories that I need…

So just smile
Take a look around
And just smile
You’ll never know until now
So just take away the pain, ignore this rain
That’s falling down on you
And just smile… yeah

Follow my lead
Just stay with me
Everything will be alright
Dodge these bullets coming one by one
Get away from them, just run, run, run
If only you had known before…

So just smile
Take a look around
And just smile
You’ll never know until now
So just take away the pain, ignore this rain
That’s falling down on you
And just smile… yeah, yeah, yeah
And just smile

You gotta look at me
Let me know what you’re feeling
You’ll be alright no matter what
Look me straight in the eyes
Listen to me when I say it’s all fine
`Cause you know it is
Let me give you a piece of advice:
Just smile... ohhhh, Just smile...

Just smile
Take a look around
And just smile
You’ll never know until now
So just take away the pain, ignore this rain
That’s falling down on you

And just smile, ohhhh
Just smile
Track Name: Truth Or Dare
Truth Or Dare

Are you saying I’m not good enough?
That I don’t meet your expectations?
You times her equals I’m leaving now
Do the multiplication

You say you’re sorry
You say you want me…
Don’t give me that look

This conversation expired, not valid
Call me all you want, leave a message
I’ll be happy to reply when I don’t exist
Now I know how you operate
All that time using me as bait
So don’t tell me how it goes
I already know

This ain’t a game of truth or dare
Don’t give a damn if you turn me down
It doesn't make you a winner
To turn my smile into a frown

Give it a try, ohhhh
This conversation expired, not valid
Call me all you want, leave a message
I’ll be happy to reply when I don’t exist
Now I know how you operate
All that time, using me as bait
So don’t tell me how it goes
I already know

I won’t listen to a word you say
I’ve walked away from the flames unscathed
Now you want me back, I won’t participate
Your plan was completely irrational
You’re totally dysfunctional
When it comes to love

This conversation expired, not valid
Call me all you want, leave a message
I’ll be happy to reply when I don’t exist
Now I know how you operate
All that time using me as bait
So don’t tell me how it goes
I already know
Track Name: Run To You
Run To You

I love you for your sweet embrace
For all the days you made me safe
In your arms
And for all the times I came home from a bad day
And you made everything okay
Again

And you give me the strength I need
Oh, you make me feel alright

Run to you when I’m scared
When I feel alone
Run to you when I need
A shoulder to lean on

`Cause I know you’re there for me
Yeah, I know you’ll stick with me
Stay by my side

I love you for the words you speak to me
No matter how much I want them to, words can’t express what you mean to me
The support, the love you’ve given to me
How can I thank you ever enough?

And you give me the strength I need
Oh, you make me feel alright

Run to you when I’m scared
When I feel alone
Run to you when I need a shoulder to lean on
`Cause I know you’re there for me
Yeah, I know you’ll stick with me
Stay by my side

So much we’ve been through in the past twelve years
All these memories swarming round in my head
And I need you here with me in my life
Don’t know what I'd be without you

Run to you when I’m scared
When I feel alone
Run to you when I need a shoulder to lean on
`Cause I know you’re there for me
Yeah, I know you’ll stick with me
Stay by my side
Track Name: Message From The Heart
Message From The Heart

I’d break a bone and sacrifice my life
Just so you could live yours in peace
I’ll do anything, go to the extremes
Just to show what you mean to me

Don’t you think otherwise
I’ve got you in the depths of my heart and in my mind

And I’m not letting you go, oh, oh, oh, oh
I’m gonna let my love show, oh, oh, oh, oh
And never say no, oh, oh, oh, oh
To my heart, it's telling me to love you
I’ll go right ahead, I’ll go right ahead
I’ll go right ahead

You’re like my diary; I tell you everything that happens to me
And you listen so carefully
You’re always there—check!
When I’m in despair—check!
And I know that you love me too, and you’re never letting me

Go, oh, oh, oh, oh
Gonna let my love show, oh, oh, oh, oh
Never say no, oh, oh, oh, oh
To my heart, it's telling me to love you
I’ll go right ahead, I’ll go right ahead

Don’t you think otherwise
I’ve got you in the depths of my heart and in my mind

And I’m not letting you go oh, oh, oh, oh
I’m gonna let my love show oh, oh, oh, oh
And never say no, oh, oh, oh, oh
To my heart, it's telling me to love you
I’ll go right ahead, I’ll go right ahead
I’ll go right ahead
Track Name: Give It Up
Give It Up

Well it’s okay
The biggest lie
I’ve ever told
Anyone
And yeah
I messed up
Don’t we all, sometimes?

And I know I was wrong but can you please forgive me
Forget it… let’s move on
And you’re holding a grudge like you always do and
Quite frankly, it’s driving me crazy
But since we’re both here to stay forever
The only smart thing to do is give it up

I used to believe in fairytale endings
But now that you’re here with me
Reality, hits me like a ton of bricks

And I know I screwed up and let you down big time
And you’re not easily forgetful
Every time I walk away instead of tryin’ to fix things
You yell… and shout… and scream… and pout
And I’ve had just about enough
But since we’re stuck here, let’s give it up

And I know I can’t run away from you
‘Cause yes I did disappoint
And I’m sorry for that, yeah I’m sorry for that
So let’s forgive and forget, remember the rest of the good times
‘Cause positivity is all we need here
After we give it up

And I know I was wrong but can you please forgive me
Forget it… and let’s move on
You’re holding a grudge like you always do and
Quite frankly, it’s driving me crazy
Since we’re both here to stay forever
The only smart thing to do is give it up

Oh, give it up
Give it up
Give it up!
Track Name: Abandoned In A Sea Of Melody
Abandoned In A Sea Of Melody

Time turns into a thin cloud of smoke
Drifting along with the words we spoke
Hovering in midair until the wind blows
A gentle breeze ruins everything

Competition struck by a match of envy
Glowing embers of jealousy
Claimed you won and ran away with nothing
You set yourself free
Lost yourself in a maze of wanderers
Never got very far
In life, in love
In life, in love

Back to another life, an abandoned ship on a sea of melody
Floating on a cloud of dreams, her hopeful mind holds the key
While you're off searching for the end of the feast
Just a side dish left over on a platter of delicacies

On a street full of swinging lanterns
That are bright but just don't match your mood
Chasing down a dream with her guitar and a voice
And the same old tune
While he's off in the wild, roaming the streets
Holding out a cup and begging for pennies
And searching for his once-lover

And then they meet on a crowded street
One feels hope and the other defeat
She with her life savings in a jar
And on her back a heavy guitar
He with the same worn old cup
Filled with change that's never enough
And they’re standing there face to face...
She looks in his eyes and says, “I loved you once”
He takes her hand and says, “I knew you once”

She gives her love
For his old pennies
He runs off, starts a new life
While she sits there in remembrance
She pulls out her guitar and writes down these words
She's been holding in for so long
She may not be there yet
But inside she's number one
