Be Yourself

Verse 1
now matter what I do I can’t get respect
why does everybody always treat me like that
everyone’s advising me it’s the same old damned story
it’s gotten to the point where everybody’s bores me
don’t care what anyone thinks
don’t care what anyone says
I’m the only one who knows what’s best for me

Chorus
Be yourself, no one else
People always judge you
Don’t let it get you down
Be yourself love yourself
In the end it’s your life, only you can make it count…..so be yourself.

Verse 2
is there some map I’m supposed to follow
just wanna be me, wanna write my own novel
everybody’s got opinions.
well all I gotta say
It’s my life to live, I’ve learned the hard way
don’t care what anyone thinks
don’t care what anyone says
I’m the only one who knows what’s best for me

Bridge
I am who I am, I won’t lose my pride

I am who I am, in the end it is your life

Chorus
Be yourself, no one else
People always judge you
Don’t let it get you down
Be yourself love yourself
In the end it’s your life, only you can make it count…..so be yourself.

Broken

Verse 1
Funny how the things that made you fall in love with me
are the very things you want to change
Threatened by my independence
blinded by the sense of your insecurities

Verse 2
Flash of jealousy in your eyes
I stand accused when you’re the one that walked away
I reassured you I don’t know how many times
but it’s never enough
tell me how did I lose your trust

Chorus
If we’re broken down
I’d rather find out now
I’m tired of your mixed blessings
I can’t take the second guessing, leaves me
broken, broken, broken

Verse 3
Accusations cut beneath the skin
you take them back but the damage has set in
It’s so easy to cast judgments, but how can I hold grudges,
all I want is your love.

Bridge
It’s not that I don’t love you but I love myself too much to let my heart hurt til it’s broken.

Chorus
If we’re broken down I’d rather find out now
I’m tired of your mixed blessings
I can’t take this second guessing leaves me
broken, broken, broken

How Did We Get Here

Verse 1
The fire’s out but I am thankful
’cause it was starting to burn
You want to fight, but I won’t argue
because I’ve already learned
That you don’t plan to change your mind, your ways, your heart
You’d rather change me, but I won’t play the part

Chorus
How did we get here (shut down and lock the door)
How did we get here (you’re nothing like before)
How did we get here (it’s time I disappear)
How did we get here (I won’t shed no more tears)

Verse 2
I know how you take your coffee
and how you mess with my mind
I know just how to make your eggs, dear
And now I’m starting to find
That I’m forgetting who I am when I’m with you
I’m forgetting me, and this will never do.

Chorus
How did we get here (shut down and lock the door)
How did we get here (you’re nothing like before)
How did we get here (it’s time I disappear)
How did we get here (I won’t shed no more tears)

Bridge
You were my prince and I your princess
Or so it seemed at the start
Now I’m only your possession
The fairy tale fell apart,
and as the story cracked, our love was broken, too
You don’t really want me, unless i’m just like you.

Chorus
How did we get here (shut down and lock the door)
How did we get here (you’re nothing like before)
How did we get here (it’s time I disappear)
How did we get here (I won’t shed no more tears)
