World of Chances – Demi Lovato

You’ve got a face for a smile you know
A shame you waste it when you’re breaking me slowly
But I’ve got a world of chances for you
I’ve got a world of chances for you
I’ve got a world of chances
Chances that you’re burning through

I’ve got a paper and pen
I go to write you goodbye and that’s when I know
I’ve got a world of chances for you
I’ve got a world of chances for you
I’ve got a world of chances
Chances that you’re burning through

Oh, I’m going my own way
My faith has lost its strength again
Oh, it’s been too hard to say
We’ve fallen off the edge again
We’re at an end
We’re at an end

Maybe you’ll call me someday
Hear the operator say the number’s no good
And that she had a world of chances for you
She had a world of chances for you
She had a world of chances
Chances you were burning through
Chances you were burning through
Chances you were burning through

You’ve got a face for a smile you know

Here, Kitty Kitty – Little Blue Pill Lyrics

Here kitty kitty here kitty kitty here,
Here kitty kitty here kitty kitty here,
Don’t come close, don’t come near,
Have I made myself clear?

It’s ok to want me, but you want nothing else,
Sitting back and plotting is a crime in itself,
I can see the writing ’cause I wrote it on the wall,
Does 50 feet or less mean anything to you at all?

You can’t conquer and divide just because I’m open wide,
You can’t catch me though you try,
You can kiss this goodbye.

Don’t come close, don’t come near,
Have I made myself clear?

You cannot control what you do with your mind,
But you’re crazy if you think that you can touch the merchandise.

You can’t conquer and divide just because I’m open wide,
You can’t catch me though you try,
You can kiss this goodbye.

You can’t conquer and divide just because I’m open wide,
You can’t catch me though you try,
You can kiss this goodbye.

Don’t come close, don’t come near,
Have I made myself clear?

This is a song by Anna Waronker as Haley Blue in the hit TV show “Castle”.

Threshold Lyrics

Inside this life,
Under it’s spell,
I close my eyes,
And live to tell.

The hands we’re dealt,
Will never disappear.
Death she grows near.

CHORUS
People change,
And instantly.
I’m not the same girl,
I used to be.
I can’t erase all the memories,
But I can explain,
If you’re listening.
People change,
Not just me.

Locked up in silence,
A living hell.
My heart still beats,
So I bid farewell.
The loving hand that saved me,
Held too tight.
His darkness weighs
On me at night.

CHORUS
People change,
And instantly.
I’m not the same girl,
I used to be.
I can’t erase all the memories,
But I can explain,
If you’re listening.
People change,
Not just me.

I never asked,
Or wanted to.
You stepped across my threshold,
How could you?

These lyrics come from the band Little Blue Pill portrayed on the hit TV show Castle.  You can catch this show in it’s eighth season on ABC Monday nights at 10PM EST.  I believe this song is featured in Season 2 of the show but I don’t recall what episode.

If you couldn’t already tell I adore this show ❤ it’s definitely one of my favorites so I don’t mind shamelessly promoting it of my own free will, especially when it represents so perfectly words I want to say but can’t find the words on my own. r

Alive – Sia

I was born in a thunderstorm
I grew up overnight
I played alone
I’m playing on my own
I survived

Hey
I wanted everything I never had
Like the love that comes with light
I wore envy and I hated that
But I survived

I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don’t change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you’re taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived

I’m still breathing [4x]
I’m alive [4x]

I found solace in the strangest place
Way in the back of my mind
I saw my life in a stranger’s face
And it was mine

I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don’t change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you’re taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived

I’m still breathing [4x]
I’m alive [4x]

You took it all, but I’m still breathing [8x]

I have made every single mistake
That you could ever possibly make
I took and I took and I took what you gave
But you never noticed that I was in pain
I knew what I wanted; I went out and got it
Did all the things that you said that I wouldn’t
I told you that I would never be forgotten
And all in spite of you

And I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m alive (You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
I’m alive (You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
I’m alive (You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
I’m alive

I’m alive [4x]

This song reminds me of the character Kate Beckett from the abc original show “Castle”.  If you know the show and Beckett’s backstory you’d know how much this song relates to her and just how much of a fighter this character really is.  Normally I wouldn’t advertise for a large network like abc but since the show is so amazing despite being under the threat of being cancelled I’d recommend it to anyone and everyone.  I can provide a brief synopsis for anyone who asks. 🙂

Good Enough

(Chorus)

Will I ever be

Will I ever be

Will I ever be good enough for anyone

When are they are they gonna see

Are they gonna see

That no matter what they say or do

I will always be me

Here I am again

Feeling so inferior

Everybody acting like they’re so superior

With their grades

And clothes

And Ivy League acceptances

They’re all competing for the throne

And I’m alone

Will I ever be

Will I ever be

Will I ever be good enough for anyone

When are they are they gonna see

Are they gonna see

That no matter what they say or do

I will always be me

I work so hard

And dream so big

But when others hear my dreams

My life gets torn at the seems

By their cruel laughs

As they tell me I’ll never make it

I climb so high

Inside my head

I rule the world

Writing music in my bed

Trying to prove them wrong

Please show me they’re wrong

Will I ever be

Will I ever be

Will I ever be good enough for anyone

When are they are they gonna see

Are they gonna see

That no matter what they say or do

I will always be me

(bridge)

And I try

And I try so hard

To be what everyone

Wants me to be

(voice over)

But they don’t realize

They can’t change me

No one can change me

No one can change me

Nobody but me

Ha!

I’ve finally learned

To deal with the pain

Of being knocked down again and again

Because no one thinks I can make it

But I will prove them wrong

I have to prove them wrong

Will I ever be

Will I ever be

Will I ever be good enough for anyone

When are they are they gonna see

Are they gonna see

That no matter what they say or do

I will always be me

I know I’ve gotta be

I know I’ve gotta be

I know I’ve gotta be good enough for somebody

I’ve gotta make them see

I’m gonna make them see

That no matter what they say or do

I’m finally good enough for me

And I’m always gonna be me

I will always be me

A Kiss Before Lying

Just a kiss

On their lips

Would be such bliss

My heartbeat skips

 

Four pretty girls

In a crazy town

A little black hoodie

Beating them down

 

All that they want

Is to be normal teens

To date normal people

And dream normal dreams

 

Just a kiss

On their lips

Would be such bliss

My heartbeat skips

 

A kiss before lying

Is all that they get

When people are dying

Each text is a threat

 

Through their secrets

And lies they tell

It’s hard not to do this

These girls do it well

 

Each episode I watch

I await each stolen kiss

These forbidden romances

I can never miss

I Will – Dedicated to Cote de Pablo

These past eight years

you have played a crucial role

in the lives of millions of fans

and your coworkers

 

we have watched you grow

on and off the screen

and we grew right along side you

 

eight years ago

I was a mere child

unsure of where I was going

we grew together

changed together

laughed and cried together

even though you’re worlds away

from a fangirl like me

 

we once dreamed of ballerinas

and singing on international stages

not knowing what was to come

or where fate would take us

 

with you leaving NCIS

and I graduating to adulthood

we both have our goodbyes to say

new journeys to begin

 

In watching you leave

a million hearts shattered

but pieces of our hearts will stay with you

like paper clips bind paper

 

as the tears fall

like emotion enhanced raindrops

I think back to one

final scene of NCIS

and the list of things

your character aspired toward

in her childhood

 

just like her

I’m making my I Will

inspired by you

 

I dedicate my drive for knowledge

in history and language

and every single choir concert and play

to you

 

you may never know me

and I’ll never know you

but I wish to send my love to you

where ever you go

 

what ever you do

you are extraordinary

in a world full of ordinary

I’m glad you came to the show

and I hope one day you return

 

but until then

much love and luck to you

Childhood Lost (Lies)

even on the best days

something has to come along

and change the way I think or feel

about something or someone

I miss the endless childhood days

when all you had to worry about

was being home by dark

growing up

you learn how naive

and protected you were

and all the lies they told you

to protect you from this cruel world

I wish we could turn back the clock

go back in time to the beauty of innocence

and endless summer days

we grow up too fast it seems

looking back in retrospect

it’s funny how all kids want

is to be adults

not knowing they’re wishing away

paradise

growing up

you learn how naive

and protected you were

and all the lies they told you

to protect you from this cruel world

as I get older

I’d give anything

to get that beautiful innocence

back again

I guess at some point

we have to decide

whether it’s better to know everything

or know nothing

and be protected and safe

growing up

you learn how naive

and protected you were

and all the lies they told you

to protect you from this cruel world

it hurts

to watch the little kids

grow up too fast

and envy what you have

when you know one day they’ll regret it

growing up

you learn how naive

and protected you were

and all the lies they told you

to protect you from this cruel world

the lies start small

like Santa and the Easter Bunny

but as things get worse

the lies get bigger

your dog ran away?

no, it was run over by the trash truck

your parents just can’t handle breaking your young heart

yet

in trying to protect you

the little lies build up

until you don’t know

what’s true

and what’s not

growing up

you learn how naive

and protected you were

and all the lies they told you

to protect you from this cruel world

when we discover

all the secrets kept

we begin to question

if you really are better off

with a really big lie

and you doubt yourself

and everything you thought to be true

growing up

you learn how naive

and protected you were

and all the lies they told you

to protect you from this cruel world.

Angel

the words on the page

are the scars on her wrists

and the broken dreams

she once dreamed

 

the fighting starts

when she walks through the door

and she runs to her room

blasting loud music

to drown out the screaming

 

her room is her sanctuary

the only place she can escape the world

and express herself

without fearing judgement

 

music and art are her comforts

the only things she’s ever had

that make her feel safe

 

she thinks about dying

thinking no one would care

she’s and invisible girl

made out of air

 

her sister’s the perfect one

even when she fails

she can do no wrong

even when they’re fighting

she always gets her way

but she still says she wants to die

 

her room is her sanctuary

the only place she can escape the world

and express herself

without fearing judgement

 

it sucks being the freaky one

who doesn’t quite fit in

no matter what she says or does

she can never win

she’s Special Ed

and she gets called out

for being the different one

 

her room is her sanctuary

the only place she can escape the world

and express herself

without fearing judgement

 

her writing is her safety

though her tears stain the pages

like raindrops

or splattered paint

on her bedroom walls

 

poetry is her outlet

the rhythm and lines

ease her mind

and reassure her it will be alright

 

breathe in

breathe out

and live for the beauty

she found in creativity

that saved her life

in the silence of the night

Bad Boys & Good Girls

Focus in on a good girl

as she tunes out

and daydreams about him again

ignoring her nerdy boyfriend

as he passes her the chemistry lab

as usual he comes in late

ever so nonchalant

in his beat up leather

and torn skinny jeans

everyone knows he’s going no where

and in her head she knows it too

but he’s a habit she can’t kick

and every moment without him

feels as painful as withdrawal

it’s been like this since freshman year

the moment she first saw him

walking into honors french

silver spikes in his ears

and his hair in a Mohawk

despite his reputation

when they worked in class together

she could barely keep from blushing

when he asked her out to dinner

even though it’s just pretend

everyone knows he’s going no where

and in her head she knows it too

but he’s a habit she can’t kick

and every moment without him

feels as painful as withdrawal

in the next room

there’s a boy who adores her

and although he says he loves her

he feels her slipping away

when Jaimee walks into the room

he has not leather

and his shoes are tearing at the seams

just like his heart

when he catches her dreaming

they’ve been together for a year

but their passion’s slowly fading

and his heart is painfully breaking

worn at the seams

from all her daydreams

everyone knows he’s going no where

and in her head she knows it too

but he’s a habit she can’t kick

and every moment without him

feels as painful as withdrawal

but it’s normal

they’re in high school

few relationships last this long

in a year he’ll leave for college

and Jaimee may drop out

everyone knows he’s going no where

and in her head she knows it too

but he’s a habit she can’t kick

and every moment without him

feels as painful as withdrawal

she doesn’t know

that two hearts will break in tandem

all for the sake of a romance

that everyone knows

will never be

that’s the thing about bad boys

good girls fall too hard

and too fast

seeing the best in the worst of them

and wonder why their heart is broken

not knowing they’re doing the same

a broken heart you can’t fix

innocent love ruined

everyone knows he’s going no where

and in her head she knows it too

but he’s a habit she can’t kick

and every moment without him

feels as painful as withdrawal
