This is almost a prequel to another song I wrote.

Not sure I like this one as much, any advice and crit (however harsh) welcome!!

VERSE

It makes more sense to lie
and turn your back on life,
and when the lights come back on
you think that you'll depend on
putting make up on your ghosts
as you look down to the bathroom floor
You could be a dream
not the other girl you dont wanna be

CHORUS

The moment you wake up you
paint another layer to
wash out every memory
and cover up the beauty
But with your eyes open wide
you can see that your life has just begun
Is it not what you always asked,
. . . . . . . . . .. . . .how could this be wrong?

VERSE

So you smoke out in a hallway
you want a life and not an eulogy
and when you hurt you say
you're the reason for your own disease
Freeze up your heart to save the beat
cos you think its easier to leave
but their hearts will open wide
when you sing along your melody

CHORUS

The moment you wake up you
paint another layer to
wash out every memory
and cover up the beauty
But if you open your eyes again
you will see that your life has just begun
isnt it what you always wanted
. . . . . . . . . .. . . .how could this be wrong

BREAK
You could be a star
not the other girl you dont wanna be
You're a work of art
a streak of gold in all the dark to me
You can be what you always dreamed
when your path splits in two
Its your chance to decide your life
without the past defining you


CHORUS

The moment you wake up you
paint another layer to
wash out every memory
and cover up your beauty
But now you opened your eyes again
you can see that your life has just begun
this is what you always wanted
. . . . . . . . . .. . . .how could it be wrong?

I think its good, the chorus is really good, I think the bridge is a bit cheezy though, it fits with the song it just seems a bit cliche.
