Turning Tables

Close enough to start a war
All that I have is on the floor
God only knows what we’re fighting for
All that I say, you always say more

I can’t keep up with your turning tables
Under your thumb, I can’t breathe

I won’t let you close enough to hurt me
No, I won’t ask you, you to just desert me
I can’t give you what you think you gave me
It’s time to say goodbye to turning tables

Under haunted skies I see
Where love is lost, your ghost is found
I’ve braved a hundred storms to leave you
As hard as you try, no, I will never be knocked down

Next time I’ll be braver,
I’ll be my own savior
When the thumb that cost me
Next time I’ll be braver,
I’ll be my own savior
Standing on my own two feet

Let It Go

Let it go
Let it go
Let it go
‘Cause it’s out of my control
Let it go
Let it go
Don’t have to have it all
Grips so tight it shatters
Only thing that matters
Only got one life
Heaven knows
What I’m stressing for
Let it go
~ Will Young

It’s time xOx

I bruise easily

My skin is like a map
Of where my heart has been
And I cant hide the marks
Its not a negative thing
So I let down my guard
Drop my defences down by my clothes
I’m learning to fall
With no safety net to cushion the blow

I bruise easily
So be gentle when you handle me
Theres a mark you leave
Like a love heart carved on a tree
I bruise easily
Can’t scratch the surface
Without moving me underneath
I bruise easily
I bruise easily

I found your fingerprints
On a glass of wine
Do you know you’re leaving them
All over this heart of mine too
But if I never take this leap of faith
I’ll never know
So im learning to fall
With no safety net to cushion the blow

Anyone who can touch you
Can hurt you or heal you
Anyone who can reach you
Can love you or leave you

Wide Awake

I was in the dark
I was falling hard
With an open heart
How did I read the stars so wrong

And now it’s clear to me
That everything you see
Ain’t always what it seems
I was dreaming for so long

I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldn’t dive in
Wouldn’t bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
Till I woke up on
On the concrete

Falling from cloud 9
Crashing from the high
I’m letting go tonight

Not losing any sleep
I picked up every piece
And landed on my feet
Need nothing to complete myself 

Yeah, I am born again 
Outta the lion’s den
I don’t have to pretend
And it’s too late
The story’s over now, the end

Thunder rumbling
Castles crumbling
I am trying to hold on
God knows that I tried
Seeing the bright side
But I’m not blind anymore

I’m wide awake

Try it on my own

I’m wiser now
I’m not the foolish girl you used to know
So long ago
I’m stronger now
I’ve learned from my mistakes which way to go
And I should know
I put myself aside to do it in your way
But now I need to do it all alone

And I am not afraid to try it on my own
I don’t care if I’m right or wrong
I’ll live my life the way I feel no matter what I’ll keep it real
You know
Time for me to do it on my own

It’s over now
I can’t go back to living through your eyes
To many lies
And if you don’t know by now
I can’t go back to being someone else
Not anymore
I never had the chance to do things my way
So now it’s time for me to take control

I start again go back to one
I’m running things in my way
Cant stop me now I’ve just begun
Don’t even think about
It there aint no way about it
I’m taking names go down the line
Yes I’m gonna take my turn
It’s time for me to
Finally stand alone
Stand alone
Whitney Houston

You know what? I’m not afraid anymore….Look out world…I’m on my way!!!!

I Will Be

I haven’t blogged much recently and yes this blog is another lyrics blog but bare with me….these songs are really important at the moment and are a way of expressing my thoughts and feelings.. I’ll be back writing partly interesting blogs in no time =D

The world seems so cold
When I face so much all alone
A little scared to move on
And knowing how fast I have grown
And I wonder just where I fit in
Oh, the vision of life in my head

I will be strong on my own
I will see through the rain
I will find my way
I will keep on traveling this road
Till I finally reach my dream
Till I’m living and I’m breathing My destiny

I can’t let go now
Even when darkness surrounds
But if I hold on,
I will show the world
All the things that you never expected to see
From little old me, this sad girl

It comforts me, oh, it keeps me
Alive each day of my life
Always guiding me, providing me
With the hope I desperately need
Well I gotta believe
There’s something out there meant for me
I get on my knees, praying I will receive
The courage to grow and the faith to know.

Words of the day…..

“You’re never gonna be
Anybody else
You’re never gonna see
Until you see yourself
So come on, come on
See how it goes
Come on, come on
Take a deep breath
And don’t let go”
~Bethany Joy Galeotti

**I look to you**

As I lay me down
Heaven hear me now
I’m lost without a cause
After giving it my all

Winter storms have come
And darkened my sun
After all that I’ve been through
Who on earth can I turn to?

I look to You
I look to You
After all my strength has gone
In You I can be strong

I look to You
I look to You
When melodies have gone
In You I hear a song, I look to You

About to loose my breath
There’s no more fighting left
Sinking to rise no more
Searching for that open door

Every road that I’ve taken
Lead me to regret
And I don’t know if I’m going to make it
Nothing to do but lift my head

I look to You
I look to You
After all my strength has gone
In You I can be strong

I look to You
I look to You
When melodies have gone
In You I hear a song, I look to You

My levee’s have broken, my walls have come
Crumbling down on me
The rain is falling, defeat is calling
I need you to set me free

Take me far away from the battle
I need you, shine on me
~Whitney Houston.

Another one of earth’s angels returning to her creator. R.I.P Whitney Houston.

No Regrets

“If I should die before I wake
The least that I could ever say
I made mistakes but held on to my faith.

‘Cos when I look in the mirror
I don’t even recognise myself
Got the heart of a winner
But looking back at me is someone else
No regrets, No regrets
No point in crying over yesterday
No regrets, No regrets
‘Cos we aint even seen the best of days.”
~ Dappy 2011
