Dance My Heart Out

Dance My Heart Out

Verse:
Waiting at the back of the room, wishing I could move.
I’ve seen the crowds come and go like the memories that are passing through

Pre-Chorus:
Always some day but never to day
Playing it safe, so I wait
There’s no perfect time when it’s never too late
This room, this room ain’t no place to hide

Chorus:
I can still see the lights. From when I was young
Yeah, I’m more scared now, than I’ve ever been before.
Don’t care if it looks like right, still hear my song
and I’m gonna dance my heart, here on this empty floor.

Here on this empty floor

Verse:
Taking each step to the sound of my heart beat.
I wish I knew the start was the hard part cause now it’s easy.

Pre-Chorus:
Always some day but never today.
Playing it safe, so I wait.
There’s no perfect time, when it’s never too late.
This room, this room ain’t no place to hide.

Chorus:
I can still see the lights. From when I was young
Yeah, I’m more scared now, than I’ve ever been before
Don’t care if it looks like right, still hear my song
and I’m gonna dance my heart, here on this empty floor.

Here on this empty floor

Bridge:
I can still, I can still see the lights (I’m gonna dance my heart out)
I can still, I can still see the lights (I’m gonna dance my heart out

Chorus:
I can still see the lights. From when I was young
Yeah, I’m more scared now, than I’ve ever been before
Don’t care if it looks like right, still hear my song
and I’m gonna dance my heart, here on this empty floor.

Dance my heart out. Here on this empty floor.
Dance my heart, here on this empty floor.

Easy

v1:

our first kiss

it was magic

the fairytales

they’d be jealous

of you and me


well prince charming

ain’t so charming

the man i thought i knew

it wasn’t you


broken dishes, fighting words

it’s all we do

in the chaos i’m still drawn to you


chorus:

it’s so easy when you hold me

but i can’t stay

it’s so easy when we’re dancing

i get carried away

but i fight your gravity when you pull me in

and i fall out of love time and time again

it’s so easy, easy

so easy



v2:

two years, did i waste them

all these lessons learned can’t replace them

can my heart replace you



broken hearts, fighting the truth

it’s all we do

in the chaos i’m still drawn to you


chorus:

it’s so easy when you hold me

but i can’t stay

it’s so easy when we’re dancing

i get carried away

but i fight your gravity when you pull me in

and i fall out of love time and time again

it’s so easy, easy

so easy


bridge:

well the heart moves on at its own pace

yea, the heart moves on at its own pace



chorus:

it’s so easy when you hold me

but i can’t stay

it’s so easy when we’re dancing

i get carried away

but i fight your gravity when you pull me in

and i fall out of love time and time again

it’s so easy, easy

so easy

[Lyrics]


Slipping Away

Slipping Away:

Verse
So listen up baby.
You got me obsessed with falling
Little bit crazy.
Yea, maybe I am
I love dramatics
Normal just drives me insane
As you’re trying hold, catch and control me but I keep drifting away

Chorus
Oh darling you got me.
But I’m slipping away
Oh darling you got me
But I got nothing to say
Slow it down, put us on replay
Taking photos for the moments
Put it on your, pretend that were Ok.
Oh darling you got me.
But I’m slipping away

Verse 2
We used to be a little risky. Take your dads old chevelot. Go to all the parties. Do things I won’t say. Right now I need you to hate me. It would make this easier. Boy believe I’m not the same girl that you met that day.

Chorus
Oh darling you got me.
But I’m slipping away
Oh darling you got me
But I got nothing to say
Slow it down, put us on replay
Taking photos for the moments
Put it on your, pretend that were Ok.
Oh darling you got me.
But I’m slipping away



Bridge
Why don’t you just leave.
You’ll find another to take my place.
You deserve more than just picture frames. And it tears me apart that you’ll tell me you’ll wait.

Chorus
Oh darling you got me.
But I’m slipping away
Oh darling you got me
But I got nothing to say
Slow it down, put us on replay
Taking photos for the moments
Put it on your, pretend that were Ok.
Oh darling you got me.
But I’m slipping away

[Lyrics]
