Taken

Across the room, you’re staring at me girl
And I can’t move, I’m underneath your spell
Still I refuse, to make the same mistakes
I just can’t lose, everything

But you’re taking over, every part of me
Am I simply helpless or to blind to see
I’ve been waiting baby, oh so patiently
It’s time to dim the lights, it’s only you and me
I’m taken
Taken

The way you move, underneath that dress
You brush my hand, and take away my breath
And all the loves, I thought I loved before
Are all forgotten, in a different world

But you’re taking over, every part of me
Am I simply helpless or to blind to see
I’ve been waiting baby, oh so patiently
It’s time to dim the lights, it’s only you and me
I’m taken

But you’re taking over, every part of me
Am I simply helpless or to blind to see
I’ve been waiting baby, oh so patiently
It’s time to dim the lights, it’s only you and me

But you’re taking over, every part of me
Am I simply helpless or to blind to see
I’ve been waiting baby, oh so patiently
It’s time to dim the lights, it’s only you and me
I’m taken

No, taken.
No ooo
Dim the lights, girl
Yeah hey, uh, uh, over, over, yeah
Mmmm yeah
No ooo yeah
Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting no ooo
Yeah
Cause you’re taking over part of me
Baby dim the lights it’s only you and me

Runway

She slips on a red dress and walks right out the door
The night is young, she’ll come undone, doesn’t know what’s in store
Looking for love, looking for truth, behind a bottle of gin
It doesn’t matter who he is, she just a wants him to come in
And I don’t know ‘bout you but I’ve seen this all before
A beautiful, young lady lost in lust, but always wanting more
She’ll bend the truth for rain to wash away her sins
Maybe her luck will change, who knows but until then

She’ll keep walking down that runway
Looking for love in all the wrong ways
If she’d just slow down and come my way
She’d never have to look for love again

Watching patiently from behind the lines
Her biggest weakness was always a strength of mine
She couldn’t wait for things to simply fall in place
Looking way too hard constantly looking past my face
I’m just the boy next door who’s got nothing to lose
Wanting someone lost at love always stricken and confused

She’ll keep walking down that runway
Looking for love in all the wrong ways
If she’d just slow down and come my way
She’d never have to look for love again

I just can’t figure out how long she’ll play this game
Her time is ticking and she’s running out of blames
If she’d just stop and see the truth before her eyes
Her quest for love would come undone, and finally end goodbyes

She’ll keep walking down that runway
Looking for love in all the wrong ways
If she’d just slow down and come my way
She’d never have to look for love again

She’ll keep walking down that runway
Looking for love in all the wrong ways
If she’d just slow down and come my way
She’d never have to look for love again

Take Back My Heart

We’ve had so many chances, we’ve had so many tries
You’re losing your composure, I read between the lines
You’ve started acting funny, you think that I can’t see
The ways that you’ve been changing, right here in front of me

And I don’t know what I’m doing
I’m losing all control
I can’t live life without you
I just don’t know

Baby, baby, baby, baby why’d you go and break my heart
Well maybe, maybe, maybe, you’ve been lying to me from the start
It’s just not fair
It’s just not right
You know I cared
I gave my life
Baby, baby, baby, I think I’m gonna take back my heart

I’m finally making headway, I’m finally letting go
I’ve finally found my runway, two steps ahead you’re just too slow
I’ll help you make some changes, I’ll help you find your place
Don’t say I didn’t warn you, you’re gonna miss this face

I know just what I’m doing
I’m finally in control
I know I’ll live without you
I finally know

Baby, baby, baby, baby why’d you go and break my heart (why did you, girl)
Well maybe, maybe, maybe you’ve been lying to me from the start
(I should have known by now)
It’s just not fair (it’s not fair)
It’s just not right (well it’s not right)
You know I cared (you know I cared)
I gave my life, oh
Baby, baby, baby I think I’m gonna take back my heart

Oooo, take it back
And I know just what I’m doing,
I’m finally in control
I know I’ll live without you
I finally know

Baby, baby, baby, baby why’d you go and break my heart (why did you girl)
Well maybe, maybe, maybe you’ve been lying to me from the start
(You’ve been lying, you’ve been lying)
It’s just not fair, no (it’s not fair)
It’s just not right (well, it’s not right)
You know I cared
I gave my life
Baby, baby, baby I think I’m gonna take back my heart
Woah, baby, baby baby I think I’m gonna take back my heart

Jenn

Lose your halo, let it all go
Everybody’s got their reasons, for all the ways that you’ve been feeling
You take one step forward and two steps back
No matter, how hard you try, you know you can’t go back, to the way, it was

Life’s a race that you wanna win, the only problem is that you come into
Second place every time you try, another person always runs right by you, by you

Don’t be so quick to run and hide
Like it or not you have to live your life
Don’t be so quick to turn your back
On all you want just because you’ve had
Enough of pain
Don’t be afraid
Oh, Jenn

Running downhill shouldn’t be a climb, you never thought it’d be so hard to find
Without a compass that was made for you, it spins, but it won’t guide true
No it won’t, no it won’t
Sew up your heart with faulty thread, you’re so exhausted falling into bed
All alone reciting past events, hoping the craziness will just make sense
But it won’t, no it won’t

Don’t be so quick to run and hide
Like it or not you have to live your life
Don’t be so quick to turn your back
On all you want just because you’ve had
Enough of pain
Don’t be afraid
Oh, Jenn

Don’t be so quick to run and hide
Like it or not you have to live your life
Don’t be so quick to turn your back
On all you want just because you’ve had
Enough of pain
Don’t be afraid
Just call my name
Don’t be afraid
Oh, Jenn

Simple Life

I just got in trouble cause I didn’t make a call
As if I fell off Earth to never be seen again at all
God forbid I miss a text, a tweet, a poke, we might all die.

I’ve been around the world a time or two to know what’s real
I know it don’t take much to make me feel the way I feel
A glass of lemonade and rocking chair is really quite ideal
I just wanna be close to you, loving the things we do
Losing all track of time, and leave this world behind
And find the love that this life can bring, let’s get back to the simple things
Find the joy that real life can bring
Let’s get back and find the simple life
The simple life, the simple life

3,000 television stations always on the dial
A RedBox on the corner I can find within a mile
Instant movies streaming all the time in case I might get bored
Never ending entertainment’s just a click away
Cell phones, laptops, iPads gonna rule the world someday
We live a crazy life that never ends, but at the end of the day

I just wanna be close to you, loving the things we do
Losing all track of time, and leave this world behind
And find the love that this life can bring, let’s get back to the simple things
Find the joy that real life can bring
Let’s get back and find the simple life
The simple life, the simple life

I just wanna be close to you, loving the things we do
Losing all track of time, and leave this world behind
And find the love that this life can bring, let’s get back to the simple things
Find the joy that real life can bring
Let’s get back and find the simple life
The simple life, the simple life

There’s gonna be chips in our heads, after the spacemen land
35 years from now, Obama won’t be President
When the end of the world is near, I’ll be drinking an ice cold beer
In the middle of New Hampshire, I’ll be nowhere to be found
Living the simple life
The simple, simple, simple, simple life
The simple life oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You can take all your technology, you can take everything you have
I don’t need a thing, I don’t need a thing, but the simple, the simple life
That’s all I need, that’s all I need
You and me, you and me, you and me and the simple, simple life

No Ordinary Girl

Another Monday morning, she wakes up at 6 am,
Stares outside the window, thinks about the world she’s living in
Brushes her teeth and hits the shower, grabs her coat and keys within the hour
Picks up coffee at the corner store, at the crosswalk wonders if there’s more
Than I life that’s ordinary

Because she’s no ordinary girl
She can change the world with every step she takes
She’s one step closer to saving grace
And she’s the exception to the rule, one of the lucky few
She changes everything, she makes the sunshine out of rain
And she’s no ordinary girl

Wipes the makeup off her face, calls her momma to build some faith
On the phone in her underwear, grabs a blanket and her favorite chair
Talks about the way life is, will she, find a boy and have three kids
She’s made a world of everyday, wants to know how to find a way
To a life not so, not so ordinary

Because she’s no ordinary girl
She can change the world with every step she takes
She’s one step closer to saving grace
And she’s the exception to the rule, one of the lucky few
She changes everything, she makes the sunshine out of rain
And she’s no ordinary girl

Because she’s no ordinary girl
She can change the world with every step she takes
She’s one step closer to saving grace
And she’s the exception to the rule, one of the lucky few
She changes everything, she makes the sunshine out of rain
And she’s no ordinary girl

She can’t see past the most mundane
How she helps the world to change
She touches every soul she meets, every person on the street
And she’s done so, so much more
By stepping through that door
And she’s no, no, she’s no ordinary girl

No ordinary girl

Would You

I don’t make promises I can’t keep, oh no
That’s just not the way love’s supposed to be, oh no
And if I was to ask, for your hand in mine
Would you give a chance to make you shine
I know that my heart’s been so close before
But I just need to know

If I would run, would you run with me
If I would fly, would you fly too
And if I gave myself would you trade love for love, would you, would you
If I would cry would you cry with me
If I was wrong, would you be wrong too
And if I gave you everything that you ever wanted too
Would you

I know that we will have hard times, mhmm
But that will make us realize, the good things
Just trust in this love and we will get through
And I promise you that there will be no fool
Just get on this ride and hold on tight
I’m praying that you do

If I would run, would you run with me
If I would fly, would you fly too
And if I gave myself would you trade love for love, would you, would you
If I would cry would you cry with me
If I was wrong would you be wrong too
And if I gave you everything that you ever wanted too
Would you
Oh would you

I know that I’m not gonna let you down
Come with me and you will see
I life full of possibilities
So what do you say

If I would run, would you run with me
If I would fly, would you fly too
And if I gave myself, would you trade love for love, would you, would you

If I would run, would you run with me
If I would fly would you fly too
And if I gave myself, would you trade love for love, would you, would you
If I would cry would you cry with me
If I was wrong would you be wrong too
And if I gave you everything that you ever wanted too
Would you
Would you

Ecstasy

Double vision, I get lost in the lights
Need more precision, I’ve got to get this right
Cause every time I see your face, my thoughts inside my mind erase
Ecstasy
My pulse is racing, I feel like I could fly
You touch my skin, you always get me high
Cause every time you come around, I wanna take you to the ground
Ecstasy

Your love is like ecstasy
There’s nothing like you and me
Oh baby, baby can’t you see
Your love is like, ecs, ecstasy

You’re so amazing, it’s never felt this way
I know it’s free, but if I had to I would pay
I love it when you set me free, addiction doesn’t bother me
Ecstasy

Your love is like ecstasy
There’s nothing like you and me
Oh baby, baby can’t you see
Your love is like, ecs, ecstasy

Girl, your love’s on fire
Ooo, you’re my desire
Girl, I’m getting higher
And I never, ever want to put you down, oh no no

(Your love girl, your love girl, your love girl, your love girl)
Your love is like ecstasy
There’s nothing like you and me
Oh baby, baby can’t you see
Your love is like, ecs, ecstasy

Your love is like ecstasy
There’s nothing like you and me
Oh baby, baby can’t you see
Your love is like, ecs, ecstasy

Your love is like ecstasy
(Your love girl, your love girl)
There’s nothing like you and me
(Your love girl, your love girl)
Oh baby, baby can’t you see
(Your love girl, your love girl)
Your love is like, ecs, ecstasy
(Your love girl, your love girl)
(Your love girl, your love girl)
(Your love girl, your love girl)
(Your love girl, your love girl)
Fade

It's Me

Wondering, if I’m doing the right thing
Wondering, if it will come around
Waiting, can be such a hard thing
Waiting, for things that may not come

And I do love you, despite the truth
But my heart is breaking, trying to make this call

So where do I go
What do I do
When the passion you deserve isn’t there from me
What can I say
How can I help
How can I keep you from crying, from hating yourself
When it has nothing to do, with you
It’s me

The things you do I could never repay
Your soul has always brightened my worst days
You deserve so much more than what I’ve done, baby
Someone who can give you what you want

And I don’t know why, it’s so hard, but I can’t lie
Deceiving myself will never make this right

So where do I go
What do I do
When the passion you deserve isn’t there from me
What can I say
How can I help
How can I keep you from crying, from hating yourself
When it has nothing to do, with you
It’s me

I know you’ll be better off without me in the end
It’s better to let you go than to hold on and pretend

So where do I go
What do I do
When the passion you deserve isn’t there from me
What can I say
How can I help
How can I keep you from crying, from hating yourself
When it has nothing to do, with you
It’s me
It’s me
It’s me

Baby, it’s me
I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry

Without You

If I were miles away
Would you just call to say
How much I mean to you when I’m not there
Would your heart bleed through the phone because you care

Do you need me like I need you
Would you trade your life for me and you
Are you dying inside to make this work
I can’t sleep at night I can’t stop this hurt
Without you
I’m lost
Without you

I’ve tried so hard to stay
On course to find our way
When you’re not here I swear I feel alone
Does it break your heart to know that I’m not home

Do you need me like I need you
Would you trade your life like me and you
Are you dying inside to make this work
I can’t sleep at night I can’t stop this hurt
Without you
I’m Lost
Without you

Without you I’d hit my knees and pray
I’d be begging to God every single day

Do you need me like I need you
Would you trade your life for me and you
Are you dying inside to make this work
I can’t sleep at night I can’t stop this hurt

Do you need me like I need you
Would you trade your life for me and you
Are you dying inside to make this work
I can’t sleep at night I can’t stop this hurt
Without you (without you)
I’m lost (without you)
Without you (without you)
I’m lost
Without you

Lose Me

Well I know that things are changing, at a never ending pace
And your faith and your religion, don’t get caught up on fate
And on first hand I know, the things that life can bring
Doubt and indecision, swelling from an unknown spring

Baby don’t lose me, oh
Searching for yourself, I know you can’t help the state that you’re in
Baby don’t lose me, oh
Don’t get caught up in lies, don’t let your heart disguise the way that you feel
Don’t lose me, no

Pressures on the outside, have got you caving in
When you’re more than buried, you can count me as a friend
And I know, what a soul like you is always searching for
A place to hang your coat up and to hopefully find more

But baby don’t lose me, oh
Searching for yourself, I know you can’t help the state that you’re in
Baby don’t lose me, oh
Don’t get caught up in lies, don’t let your heart disguise the way that you feel
Don’t lose me, no
Don’t lose me, no

But baby don’t lose me, no, no, no, no
Searching for yourself, I know you can’t help the state that you’re in baby
Baby don’t lose me, no, no, no, no
Don’t get caught up in lies, don’t let your heart disguise the way that you feel
Don’t lose me, no
Don’t lose me, no

Forever After

Tonight, could I hold your hand, would that be that bad if we were in public
Tonight, I need to know where I stand, could I be your man, would you let me love you

Cause I’ve been so close before, and I’m just afraid, of what could happen
Just give me a sign, that you could be mine
Forever after

Cause I’ll give you everything you’ve ever needed
You’ll never have to go to bed lonely
As long as I’m around

Because you
Won’t find a better love than me baby
There’s no ifs, ands, buts or maybes
I’ll make your world go round

So tonight,
Could you let down your hair
And know that I care
And I’ll always be here

Cause I’ve been so close before, and I’m just afraid of what could happen
Just give me a sign, that you could be mine
Forever after

Tonight, I’m down on my knees, begging you please don’t ever leave me
Starting tonight
You’ll never have be afraid
All the plans that you have made
I’m gonna make them all come true

Because I’ve been waiting so long
For someone like you
To let me love them
So here is your sign
That you will be mine

Forever after
