"Waste Tonight"

From across the room
I saw you smile
and I wonder if
we could talk for a while
because...
I'd like to know your name
and this party's getting lame
I wanna waste tonight (I wanna waste tonight)
I wanna waste tonight with you

So let's find the darkest alley
and I'll race you to the stars
we'll drive all night and sing along
with the radio in my car

I love the way
you laugh and say,
"Our lives will never
be the same."
Let's go
Wheels spinnin' till the break of day
Hearts beat with songs that play
We'll just keep driving (just keep driving)
Just keep driving on...

So let's find the darkest alley
and I'll race you to the stars
we'll drive all night and sing along
with the radio in my car
So let's find the darkest alley
and I'll race you to the stars
we'll drive all night and sing along
with the radio in my car

Sing it louder (sing it louder), Sing it back (sing it back)
Heart-tied teen just chasing dreams
until the sun comes up

So let's find the darkest alley
and I'll race you to the stars
we'll drive all night and sing along
with the radio in my car
So let's find the darkest alley
and I'll race you to the stars
we'll drive all night and sing along
with the radio in my car


"Just Crash Here"

Hands in the air, Heart on the line, Just crash here

If you hear something
you didn't hear it from me
and if word gets out
then we'll probably
be forced to confess
that this wasn't the best
Idea we've had...

Cuz the crowd is here
and they can sense your fear
if you try to back out
you'll never live it down
and the whole wide world
will know you're the girl
Who gave up...

So the audience waits
for you to fall or fly
and the stage is set
for your last goodbyes
hands in the air
heart on the line
jump, jump!
just crash here

House lights go down
and the spotlight's on
you realize now
this isn't what you want
you turn around and it's
a long way down
from here...

So the audience waits
for you to fall or fly
and the stage is set
for your last goodbyes
hands in the air
heart on the line
jump, jump!
just crash here

If you hear something
you didn't hear it from me
and if word gets out
then we'll probably
be forced to confess
that this wasn't the best
idea...


"Untitled"

Another Day, and still no dollar
and pennies saved just don't add up
I'm tired, broke, and out of patience
or maybe I'm just outta luck
I try and try to make a difference
but all I do is make it worse
please don't ask me to talk about it
I'll find a way to make things work

I'm just a kid without a clue
where to go or what to do
one more day, I'll walk the streets
with my guitar and on tired feet
empty-handed-over-board
A smile I still can't afford
one more night, I sleep alone
Call me when you want me home

No one ever pays attention
to me at all, not that I care
But still I feel them staring, looking
for someone I know isn't there
Eighteen years, it's like a train wreck
Another year, will it stay the same?
Will someone please just call a doctor?
I'm pretty sure I've gone insane

Will you stay here, feel my heart beat
til the air escapes my lungs
I hold your hand, feel the future
something tells me you're the one
cautious when our words are spoken
but our tongues still can't be tamed
Eighteen years, it's like a train wreck
but with you, it's not the same


"Sorrow"

Sorrow
it resonates
like thunder
inside my mind
our friendship
is sinking
our heartbeats
are out of time

And now
I used to laugh
I used to smile
are you still here?
This sad goodbye
it's old and worthless
I scream for help
cus I can't take it
I can't take it

Your voice and
you words cut
right through me
and I can't breath
the waves of
cold water
come crashing
right down on me

And now
I used to laugh
I used to smile
are you still here?
This sad goodbye
it's old and worthless
I scream for help
cus I can't take it
I can't take it

this isn't
the first time
and I'll bet
it's not the last
frustration
confusion
it happens
all too fast

And now
I used to laugh
I used to smile
are you still here?
This sad goodbye
it's old and worthless
I scream for help
cus I can't take it
I can't take it


"This One's For You"

On the worst day that I've had in a while
You were there to make me smile
forgive me for looking so surprised
you always seemed to care for other guys
I just wanna thank you for being there
I just wanna thank you for being there

I know doesn't seem like much to you
but to me, it meant the world, it's true
I know doesn't seem like much to you
but to me, it meant the world

Remember when I sat by you in class
with you, the time went by too fast
You knew at once, I was a fool
I never thought that you could be so cool
I just wanna thank you for being there
I just wanna thank you for being there

I know doesn't seem like much to you
but to me, it meant the world, it's true
I know doesn't seem like much to you
but to me, it meant the world

I just wanna thank you for being there
I just wanna thank you
I just wanna thank you for being there
I just wanna thank you

I wish that I could pay you back but I can't
It's not a matter of a favor or of cash
it's how you made me feel on the inside
the way you said, don't worry it's alright


"I'm Gonna Be Okay"

I waited years for this?
18 just makes me sick
I wish I stayed
Asleep today
but I can't complain
because my life's okay
as long as I
just force a smile

but if I had your strength
and if I had your faith
I wouldn't feel
alone today
and if I had your heart
if I was in your arms
I'd be alright
and get through tonight

I whisper to myself
discuss my mental health
I'm sure
I don't need help
The questions never stop
when I wonder, God
do you think I
I'm gonna be okay

but if I had your strength
and if I had your faith
I wouldn't feel
alone today
and if I had your heart
if I was in your arms
I'd be alright
and get through tonight
Come on

but if I had your strength
and if I had your faith
I wouldn't feel
alone today
and if I had your heart
if I was in your arms
I'd be alright
and get through tonight

your lyrics are nice but i would recommend that you shave off a few songs. I believe that if you are sending it to a record company pick your top 3 or 4 songs. But good job.

Posting Limits.
This is restricted to one piece per day; two per 6 days. It is calculated on a personal basis, not sun-sat, so it is 2 per every 6 days. This is mainly for your benefit. Having too many pieces up means you get less feedback on each piece, so by following this rule you maximise the chance of getting more replies. Any extra threads will be closed, and you’ll have to wait 5 days before you may post again, Posting within those 6 days will result in a warning. Also do not post more than one piece in a single thread and class it as your two in the allowed 6 days, it is 1 per day.

Thread Titles.
Two things and two things only should be in your thread title; the name of your piece, and a genre, where applicable. No other symbols or attention seeking devices are permitted - This includes capitalisation too. Your thread will just be closed if you do. Do not beg for a critique or say ‘C4C’ (Crit for Crit) either, or it will be closed. Smileys also are not permitted. HTML does not work in titles either, don’t try it, it will be closed. If you can't think of a title, 'Untitled' will suffice.
In addition to this you can put "unfinished" alongside your title, for any work that is incomplete, I stress just "unfinished". The only other permitted extras in your title is O.T.S. (On the spot).
