Lyrics

"GET IT GOOD"

VERSE
Where do we begin?
From the start, I was trapped, I could never win
then I was set free
You lost the grip, and you tripped, you had no hold on me
And look where you are now
Seems the word about you has been going around
you wanna know the truth?
I’m not scared anymore, I’ve got nothing to lose

PRE CHORUS
You never believed in me
said that I was too weak
I could never make it on my own
How the tables have turned
one day you will soon learn
that what goes around comes back around

CHORUS
I never wanna see you again
this is goodbye my friend
I know it’s bittersweet but
watch me walk out as I leave
Call me your names, and I will just smile
Vengeance is sweet
when you are right
I did the best I could but darling you know
YOU’RE GONNA GET IT GOOD

VERSE 2
Now I’m soaring high
can’t touch me, out of reach, I just pass you by
Didn’t think I could
but here I am, standing tall, right where I should

PRE CHORUS
You never believed in me
said that I was too weak
I could never make it on my own
my the tables have turned
one day you will soon learn
that what goes around comes back around

CHORUS
I never wanna see you again
this is goodbye my friend
I know it’s bittersweet but
watch me walk out as I leave
Call me your names, and I will just smile
Vengeance is sweet
when you are right
I did the best I could but darling you know
YOU’RE GONNA GET IT

BRIDGE
I dare you to walk a mile in my shoes
I want you to learn the ugly side of truth
Haven’t you heard what what goes around comes back?
So let’s face the facts
You’re gonna get it good, you’re gonna get it good

CHORUS
I never wanna see you again
this is goodbye my friend |
I know it’s bittersweet but
watch me walk out as I leave
Call me your names, and I will just smile
Vengeance is sweet
when you are right
I did the best I could but darling you know
YOU’RE GONNA GET IT GOOD

"LUCKBOY"

VERSE 1
So you think that you can call the shots?
You got a reason for calling this off?
You do without thinking and say without thinking a thing
Oh baby I know that times have changed
But I wonder what goes on in your brain
You take what you need and pack up your things and leave

PRE CHORUS
Oh we were drunk in love
But now I’m finally sober
And I think it’s safe to say we’re over

CHORUS
When the sun goes down and I hit up midtown
I sometimes think about where you are now
I don’t give a what boy
Guess you’re running out of luck boy
With just one kiss we switched our fate
I know you’re but it’s too late
I don’t give a what boy
Guess you’re running out of luck boy

VERSE 2
In my mind’s eye, I had no doubts
You and I weren’t meant to fall out
Oh I tried my hardest but you never were honest

PRE CHORUS
Oh we were drunk in love
But now I’m finally sober
And I think it’s safe to say we’re over

CHORUS
When the sun goes down and I hit up midtown
I sometimes think about where you are now
I don’t give a what boy
Guess you’re running out of luck boy
With just one kiss we switched our fate
I know you’re but it’s too late
I don’t give a what boy
Guess you’re running out of luck boy

PRE CHORUS
Oh we were drunk in love
But now I’m finally sober
And I think it’s safe to say we’re over

CHORUS
When the sun goes down and I hit up midtown
I sometimes think about where you are now
I don’t give a what boy
Guess you’re running out of luck boy
With just one kiss we switched our fate
I know you’re but it’s too late
I don’t give a what boy
Guess you’re running out of luck boy

"STARRY EYED CHILD"

VERSE 1
Starry Eyed Child won’t you stay a while
I’m all alone and I can’t go home tonight
You’re in my dreams when I sleep
I wish you were right next to me
Just one arm’s reach tonight

CHORUS
What would I do without your love?
I’m floating 10 feet off the ground
You spin my world upside down
And keep it turning round and round
One day our lives will change
And we will never be the same
But we’ve got this one night
Just you and I my starry eyed

VERSE 2
Starry eyed child won’t you stay
a while in my arms cause the world’s not bright tonight
Starry eyed child with eyes of blue and love of gold
No diamonds compare to you

CHORUS
What would I do without your love?
I’m floating 10 feet off the ground
You spin my world upside down
And keep it turning round and round
One day our lives will change
And we will never be the same
But we’ve got this one night
Just you and I my starry eyed

BRIDGE
Just hold on to this night
we own the night alright
Just one look and I’m gone
My starry eyed has taken my heart

CHORUS
What would I do without your love?
I’m floating 10 feet off the ground
You spin my world upside down
And keep it turning round and round
One day our lives will change
And we will never be the same
But we’ve got this one night
Just you and I my starry eyed

"JUST STAY"

VERSE 1
Not a word is mentioned
I feel the rising tension
We are a ticking time bomb
waiting to go off.
How did we end up down here?
Oh, this is all that I’ve feared
I used to hold you so close
heaven only knows

PRE CHORUS
Oh forgive, for i know I’m weak
But I’ve shredded all my dignity on you
so I’m begging you please

CHORUS
Just stay
stay
No, I don’t have a reason why
but we’ve come too far to let die
don’t go away
just stay.

VERSE 2
You have given me no choice
I hear the sound of my voice
begging you "please, do not go"
Heaven only knows

PRE CHORUS
Oh forgive, for I know I’m weak
But I’ve shredded all my dignity on you
so I’m begging you please

CHORUS
Just stay
stay
No, I don’t have a reason why
but we’ve come too far to let die
don’t go away
so stay.

BRIDGE
It seems what hurts the most
was trusting you with my heart and soul
I thought that I was free

PRE CHORUS
Oh forgive, for I know I’m weak
But I’ve shredded all my dignity on you
so I’m begging you please

CHORUS
Just stay
Just stay
No, I don’t have a reason why
but we’ve come too far to let die
don’t go away
so stay.

"I KNOW BETTER NOW"

VERSE 1
Letters tied in thin brown string
Lockets engraved promising
Petty words of forlorn hope
that played on my mind till I woke
Sent me all my favorite flowers
With notes that kept me up for hours
so much I wish I could say
but words are weak when thought too late

PRE CHORUS
The lines of us fade
as your true colors emerge
My mind’s a blank page
and my visions of you blur

CHORUS
I know much better now
And I erased all my doubts
I realized my lessons learnt
but I never thought we’d crash and burn
but I know much better now

VERSE 2
My demons are your silhouettes
that line on my walls of regret
I wonder if you think of me
and wish that this weren’t bittersweet

PRE CHORUS
The lines of us fade
as your true colors emerge
My mind’s a blank page
and my visions of you blur

CHORUS
I know much better now
And I erased all my doubts
I realized my lessons learnt
but I never thought we’d crash and burn
but I know much better now

BRIDGE
I know, I know, oh I know better now
I know, I know, oh I know better now
I know, I know, oh I know better now
I know

CHORUS
I know much better now
cause I erased all my doubts
I realized my lessons learnt
but I never thought we’d crash and burn
but I know much better now

"CAN’T FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU"

VERSE 1
I gave him what he wanted
Got nothing in return
I thought all my lessons were learned
But now look where I am
I run in circles yet again
I play it back in my head

PRE CHORUS
How under candlelight the shadows came to play
And I was tongue twisted, no words left to say
You’ve got me falling fast, and feeling high
I said just close your eyes
Let’s pretend for the night

CHORUS
But no matter what you say or do
I can’t fall in love with you
It’s the one thing that I promised, I promised
So whatever I do
I can’t fall in love with you

VERSE 2
I know I was enough
And worthy to be loved
Who thought it would be so tough
But that’s what left me blue
Knowing there’s nothing I can do
I’m left without a clue

PRE CHORUS
So in all my dreams I build realities
Where it’s just you and me
Where we’re meant to be
But then I’d awake to the mess we made
And then a part of me wishes that you would change

CHORUS
But no matter what you say or do
I can’t fall in love with you
It’s the one thing that I promised, I promised
I promised, I promised

CHORUS
But no matter what you say or do
I can’t fall in love with you
It’s the one thing that I promised, I promised
So whatever I do
I can’t fall in love with you

"INTO THE SUN"

VERSE 1
It’s the same old same
Nothing’s changed
I keep working on this 9-5 base
I’ve run out of luck
I’m stuck
I want to be free
What’s restraining me

PRE CHORUS
Something inside me just wants something more
Then living inside of big empty bore
I’m done with this all I just want to have fun
It’s time to run right into the sun

CHORUS
My arms are in the air but I’m too blind to care
The rays of the sun keep me feeling youn
You cannot stop me now I’m having my fun
Running right in
Into the sun
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
We go into the into the into the sun
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
We go

VERSE 2
I’m lost in space
My mind wanders to that magical place
Where we didn’t care didn’t dare
Where are those times they’ve escaped my mind

PRE CHORUS
I feel like I’m caught in a black veil of spell
But no one’s around to let me out of this hell
I’m done with this all I just want to have fun
It’s time to run right into the sun

CHORUS
My arms are in the air but I’m too blind to care
The rays of the sun keep me feeling youn
You cannot stop me now I’m having my fun
Running right in
Into the sun
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
We go into the into the into the sun
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
We go

BRIDGE
It’s the same old same
Nothing’s changed
I keep working on this 9-5 base
I’ve run out of luck
I’m stuck
I want to be free
What’s restraining me

CHORUS
My arms are in the air but I’m too blind to care
The rays of the sun keep me feeling youn
You cannot stop me now I’m having my fun
Running right in
Into the sun
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
We go into the into the into the sun
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
We go

"WONDERLAND "

VERSE 1
That summer’s day
we laid in the sand
Wrapped in your arms,
holding your hand
You said that I was the only one
We’d take the world
and I’d be your girl

CHORUS
I watch the sea rise the the sun
wondering if you’d ever come
Maybe I just can’t understand
That I missed the ship to wonderland

VERSE 2
At midnight’s hour
the stars spell your name
standing alone
with no one’s embrace
My mind cannot think of anyone else
I’m hiding you
in spite of myself

CHORUS
I watch the sea rise the the sun
wondering if you’d ever come
Maybe I just can’t understand
That I missed the ship to wonderland.

BRIDGE
I’m caught in the eye of your storm
Can’t hold on anymore
Oh, how I wish that one last kiss
wasn’t bitter like this

(Break)

I know one day
the sun will prevail
the ship that I missed
will finally set sail
Maybe one day I’ll understand
you weren’t truly my wonderland

CHORUS
I watch the sea rise the the sun
wondering if you’d ever come
Maybe I just can’t understand
That I missed the ship to wonderland

OUTRO
Maybe one day, I’ll understand
you weren’t truly my wonderland.

"DANCING WITHOUT YOU"

VERSE 1
The sun is setting on the scene
On a world full of pity
We’re the kings and the queens
Of our own reality

CHORUS
Tonight I’m gonna dance without you
I don’t know how I’m feeling brand new
No matter what I’ll keep pulling through
I’m gonna dance without you

VERSE 2
Behind the shadows, left the light
Into the darkness I go
Took the train past midnight
To reap all I sow

CHORUS
Tonight I’m gonna dance without you
I don’t know how I’m feeling brand new
No matter what I’ll keep pulling through
I’m gonna dance without you
Tonight I’m gonna dance without you
I don’t know how I’m feeling brand new
No matter what I’ll keep pulling through
I’m gonna dance without you

BRIDGE
Dancing without you
Dancing without you
Dancing without you
Dancing without you

VERSE 3
The sun will always rise again
And with the day comes the day
Though I cannot ease the pain
I know I must move on

CHORUS
Tonight I’m gonna dance without you
I don’t know how I’m feeling brand new
No matter what I’ll keep pulling through
I’m gonna dance without you
Tonight I’m gonna dance without you
I don’t know how I’m feeling brand new
No matter what I’ll keep pulling through
I’m gonna dance without you
