it's a big girl world now
full of big girl things
and everyday i wish i was small

i've been counting on nothing
but he keeps giving me his word
and i'm tired of hearing myself speak
do you get weary? do you ever get weak?
how do you dream when you can't fall asleep?

i've been wondering what you're thinking
and if you like my dress tonight
would you still say you love me under this ordinary moonlight?
i'm so afraid of what you'd say

i'd like to know if you'd be open to starting over from scratch
i'd like to know if you'd be open to giving me a second chance

i used to think i was special
and only i have proved me wrong
i thought i could change the world with a song
but i have ended up in india
with no map to guide me home
strangest place i think i've ever been
and all this time i thought that we were friends
my stubborn will is learning to bend

i'd like to know if you'd be open to starting over from scratch
i'd like to know if you'd be open to giving me a second chance

it's a big girl world now
full of big girl things
and everyday i wish i was small

Rollercoaster ringtone on your mobile phone
Life gets a little better, life gets a little gray Live it up, live it long you can always count on Those unexpected moments when the pleasure just sweeps you away We were made for something better Something better than this inconsistency So while you wait to respond what's really going on Under shame, under doubt, what's the whole thing all about Sing to me It's like a rollercoaster 100 miles fast Spins you round in circles till you want to collapse Makes you so excited you can't wait for your second chance Love gets a little moldy Especially when it's you I'm trying to love And the road gets so long seems so hard to sing along But I can't imagine any other I would rather be dreaming of We are riding on the shoulders of the ones who've come before and the ones who've passed away Some are good, some are bad, some are all we've ever had To compare to prepare us for everything we are facing today Some are good, some are bad, some are all we've ever had Some are tired, some are bored, some still stuck on keepin
g score Some are kind, some are mean, some are never to be seen Some are tired, some are weak, some are lying through their teeth Some can love, some can hate I can relate

Look at all those lives living for themselves Look at all you've got that you could give to someone else, yeah Look at all you've done with all the days you've had so far What you will become is up to you to search your heart But nothing ever changes, You see so many faces No, nothing ever changes until someone changes you Who do you think you are? Who do you think you are? Some kind of superstar? (When you see the world in need, who do you want to be? You can be who you want to be) Look at all your time wasted on what fades away Would you take it back if you could have your yesterdays? When all this is over maybe we'll see Who we were made for and destined to be, but tell me...

Ups & Downs

length: 2:29
All that I've found through the ups and downs
Is that I'd have it no other way
Life in the raw is both fragile and strong
It's both lovely and ugly the same
Who can attest that when they're at their best
Oh their worst is still crouching close behind
It's coming to peace with the darkness in me
That allows the true light to shine inside
So let it go, for we are still far from home
Though you try and try to escape
To live and to love will always be dangerous
But it's better than playing it safe
We are composed of a symphony of notes
Every life is as music to His ears
I'll play my melody be it haunting be it sweet
Unashamed of what anyone might hear
So when the load breaks your back and your will
You must still keep your heart in the game
To live and to love will always be dangerous
But it's better than playing it safe
So let it go, when it don't feel like home
When inside is your only escape
To live and to love will always be dangerous
But would you want it any other way?

The Moon

length: 3:58
The moon's worn thin
Succumbed to the pressure
Her silver dress
Hangs in the sky like a rag

Her coat her cloak
Her cover of darkness
It fails to hide
The tears that she's cried
Oh she cries

But she still shines
Though the night falls around her
And by her light
I find my way
When I fear the path laid before me
I look to the light of her face
And thank her for being so brave

The moon remains
In fullness or frailty
A faithful climb
And I stand amazed at the way

Stand ringtone on your mobile phone
Here I am waiting For how long I don't know It's a long way back from where I've been But there's no where else to go So I'll stand With my face to the wind And my back to the world I'll follow you And I'll go where you tell me to go No I won't be afraid No I won't be afraid I feel your wind is moving I'm not sure where it's going But I'll let it carry me away Cause I'm not staying in this place And I won't turn around...

Little Things

length: 4:01

Little Things ringtone on your mobile phone
I don't care what anybody thinks I will stare when everybody blinks I don't mind the difference that they see Cause He loves Every little thing Every little thing Every little thing Every little thing Every little thing About me.... I believe that everybody bleeds Sticks and stones aren't what has cut so deep I won't buy the hate they sell for free You can't carry the weight of the world I won't carry the weight of the world I can tell the hell that you've been through It won't make a difference what they do They'll still tell you all the lies are true But I love Every little thing Every little thing Every little thing Every little thing Every little thing About you...

Happy ringtone on your mobile phone
I can't sleep it's Sunday morning I get no peace when you're away I thought the stars were finally for us I read 'em wrong, they're brewing hurricanes Take these arms we call our home And feel just what is true They sky ain't moving me away, it's the sky that's moving you I can't breathe it's all too sudden You made your move and by surprise I've been caught again in danger Divorce myself or be your bride Take these words of right and wrong And tell me how they fit When I'm wrong for loving me And you're right, I just can't quit I wanna be free to be happy again I wanna be told that you love who I am And if it's a spark that you're missing Then maybe you should try and hold my hand I wanna be happy again I can't choose between now and never Our baby boy he's almost five And he needs both his momma and daddy And I won't make him choose a side Take these roads we travel And tell me where they lead You sold me heaven but gave me hell And with every step I bleed

Johnny ringtone on your mobile phone
Johnny shot to the moon It's on the nightly news There's nothing I can do Johnny shot to the moon Johnny's got something to say Johnny's not, he's not coming down today Johnny thought things would always be the same Oh no, no, no things can't always be the same Johnny shot through the roof No one can get through Come and see the proof That Johnny shot through the roof When you wake up in a war Torn between your heart and head Who will win, who'll be defeated? Johnny, I quit keeping score Now there's no one left to blame No one left to leave you cheated Johnny shot to the moon I guess it's nothing new It's sad to say but it's true Johnny shot to the moon

You can't go backwards, you must go forward You have not been what you could be When you are the only one that enslaves you Then you're the only one that can set you free Don't run away, question the answers Live you life like it's on fire You're one mistake is to think you've made one Don't run away You can't have mountains without the valleys You can't go high if you won't go deep You can't do over what you've done already Expecting something new to see I will not be bought, not be caged Won't stay behind my walls where it is safe No, I'm tired of trying to compensate for you For you...


length: 4:55

Don't stop your crying on my account A frightening lion, no doubt He's not safe, no he's not safe Are you tempted now to run away? The King above all Kings is coming down But He won't say the words you wish that he would Oh, he don't do the deeds you know that He could He won't think the thoughts you think He should But He is good, He is good I know you're thirsty, the water is free But I should warn you, it costs everything Well, He's not fair, no He's not fair When He fixes what's beyond repair And graces everyone that don't deserve No one knows Him whom eyes never seen No, I don't know Him but He knows me He knows me, He knows me Lay down your layers, shed off your skin But without His incision, you can't enter in He cuts deep, yeah He cuts deep When the risk is great and the talk is cheap But never leaves a wounded one behind

Twenty Three

length: 5:17

Twenty-three, when did we become grown?
I never noticed the seeds of the cynic being sown
Will we stave, will the harvest time reap
Freedom or chains, hope or disdain for the weak?
Twenty-three, when did we become safe?
We pray to feel pleasure and hate when we have to feel pain
Let me see your burn, let me see your bruise
You look just like me
Let me see where you're broken in two
We pretend when we find the end of ourselves
Afraid to be real so we say we are somebody else
Little ones teach the big to be free
Children are only un-costumed humanity
While we wait here in the dark, love lends a spark
But we can't decide
'Cause coming back to life is harder than hell
Once you have died
Finally, I can see with your eyes
That everyone angry is only just aching inside
Twenty-three, when the sun sets tonight
There's always a reason we just cannot leave it behind


length: 10:03

I will pray for you now, for you have been my faithful friends
While the road we walk is difficult indeed
I couldn't not ask for more than what you've already been
Only that you would say these prayers for me
May your heart break enough that compassion enters in
May your strength all be spent upon the weak
All the castles and crowns you build and place upon your head
May they all fall, come crashing down around your feet
May you find every step to be harder than the last
So your character grows greater every stride
May your company be of humble insignificance
May your weakness be your only source of pride
What you do unto others may it all be done to you
May you meet the One who made us
And see Him smile when life is through
May your blessings be many but not what you hoped they'd be
And when you look upon the broken
May mercy show you what you could not see
May you never be sure of any plans you desire
But you'd learn to trust the plan He has for you
May your passions be tried and tested in the holy fire
May you fight with all your life for what is true
I have prayed for you now all my dear and faithful friends
But what I wish is more than I could eever speak
As the way wanders on I'll long to see you once again
Until then, would you pray these prayers for me?
Oh, that you would pray for me
