Somebody Lyrics

1. Better Selves 

Hey, how are you doin?

I know you’re working hard

1. Better Selves © 2016

Hey, how are you doin?

I know you’re working hard

Hey, how are you doin?

I know your friends are far

 

Sometimes i just close my eyes and I dream we run away

Sometimes it’s just me by myself

But I know in my heart of hearts that we should both stay

And just be… our better selves

 

Hey, how am I doin?

You know it can be hard

Hey, how am I doin?
The old me seems so far

 

Sometimes I just close my eyes and I dream we run away

Sometimes it’s just me by myself

But I know in my heart of hearts that we should both stay

And just be… our better selves

 

We used to talk about everything

Now we just walk away and clutch these wedding rings

How about we both stay? And you hold me close today?

 

Hey, how are we doin?

I’d say we’re doing fine

Hey, how are we doin?
We’ll stand the test of time

 

Sometimes I just close my eyes and I dream we run away

Sometimes it’s just me by myself

But I know in my heart of hearts that we should both stay

And just be… our better selves

It's raining on the fourth of July

I'm far away from apple pie

Or a Brooklyn rooftop with a view

I'm far away from it all, but I'm close to you

 

You are my home,

My family

Wherever you roam

You know i'll be

 

With you, I share my dreams, my life

I'm so excited to be your wife

And to love you til the day that I die

We'll celebrate the fourth of July

 

You are my home,

My family

Wherever you roam

You know i'll be

 

Day of independence,

And I've never felt so free

To imagine with someone

The life we'd like to lead.

And I've never felt love like this before,

I can't believe I'm gonna love you more and more and more

 

You are my home,

My family

Wherever you roam

You know i'll be

 

 

Some of us Fall © 2106

I’m tired, I’m tired, I’m tired of everything

I’ve tried, I’ve Tried, I’ve tried everything
Why does everyone want to save me?
Is it to just save yourselves?

Why can’t you just let me be?
Some of us rise, and some of us fall

 

I’ve lied, I’ve lied, I’ve lied about everything

I’ve cried, I’ve cried, I’ve cried over everything

Why does everyone want to save me?
Is it to just save yourselves?

Why can’t you just let me be?
Some of us rise, and some of us fall

 

Don’t you think I would change if I could?
Don’t you know how I long to be understood?

If you could just be inside my head

To feel this pain and not judge instead

 

And I’m tired, I’m tired of everything

And I’ve tried, I’ve tried..everything  

Why does everyone want to save me?
Is it to just save yourselves?

Why can’t you just let me be?

Cause some of us fall


 

 

Teenage Heart © 2015

 

I’ve been thinkin’ about the stories I was told

When I was younger about how when I’d get old

It would be all be so simple, all be so clear

But I disagree, now that I’m here

Because I still get mad, and I still feel sad

And I’ll stay say stupid things and then I’ll feel bad

And I.. i still write my songs...I do..

 

I’ve got a teenage heart

I’ve got a teenage heart

And though I might be old and I might be wise

If you look closer, you might be surprised to find a

Teenage heart

 

I’ve been thinkin’ about the stories I was told

When I was younger about how when I’d get old

It would be all be so simple, all be so clear

But I disagree, now that I’m here

Because I still get mad, and I still feel sad

And I’ll stay say stupid things and then I’ll feel bad

And I.. i still write my songs..for you

 

I’ve got a teenage heart

I’ve got a teenage heart

And though I might be old and I might be wise

If you look closer, you might be surprised to find a

Teenage heart

 

Don’t try to change me, just take me as I am

Don’t rearrange me, just try to understand

Ooh, this is me, and if you looked closer at yourself you might see

The same heart, The same heart

 

I’ve been thinkin’ about the stories I was told

When I was younger about how when I’d get old

It would be all be so simple, all be so clear

But I disagree, now that I’m here  

 

 

I’m your mama © 2015-2017

I’m your mama, I’m your mama, Oh I’m your mama

Your mama, I’m here

There’ll be times when you won’t wanna talk to your mama

But oh, just know I’m here

 

I am to love you and let you go

There ain’t another love like this that I know

I will guide you, and give you

All that I can

I won’t hide you, won’t lie to you

And I’ll try to understand

 

I’m your mama, I’m your mama, Oh I’m your mama

Your mama, I’m here

There’ll be times when you won’t wanna talk to your mama

But oh, just know I’m here

 

There’ll be days when the world will break your heart

And it feels like it’s all falling apart

But I know , you know how loved you are

And that’s or I’m always with you, even when I’m far

 

I’m your mama, I’m your mama, Oh I’m your mama

Your mama, I’m here

There’ll be times when you won’t wanna talk to your mama

But oh, just know I’m here

 

You will fail you will fly

You’ll have fun you’ll have fears

You will laugh, you will cry

Watch the days turn into years

You may stumble, you may fall

And even if you crumble

You know who to call..

 

Your mama, Your mama, Oh your mama

Your mama, I’m here

There’ll be times when you won’t wanna talk to your mama

But oh, just know I’m here








 

I’m so sorry Mama © 2017

I’m so sorry mama things are this way

Don’t it make you wanna go back to yesterday

I’m so sorry mama things are this way

Don’t it make you wanna go back to yesterday .. Yesterday Yay..

 

Back when the sun was shining and we didn’t even know there was

A storm on the horizon raring to go

And our hearts were full, and our cares were free

Ain’t that the way that life is meant to be?
 

I raise my hands up no… into the sky

My hands up now...and wonder why?

My hands up now… try not to cry

 

I’m so sorry mama things are this way

Don’t it make you wanna go back to yesterday

I’m so sorry mama things are this way

Don’t it make you wanna go back to yesterday .. Yesterday Yay..

 

Back when the sun was shining and we didn’t even know there was

A storm on the horizon raring to go

And our hearts were full, and our cares were free

Ain’t that the way that life is meant to be?
 

I raise my hands up no… into the sky

My hands up now...and wonder why?

My hands up now… try not to cry

 

Don’t go, stop, don’t go this way

Don’t go, stop, go back to yesterday

Don’t go, stop, don’t go this way

Don’t go, stop, go back to yesterday

 

I’m so sorry mama…

 


 

Longer you Love Someone © 2011

When I first met you, you used to do the dishes

When I first met you, you couldn’t stop kissing me

When I first met you, you’d listen to my wishes

Made me feel that there was no one else but me

 

It’s funny the longer you love someone, the less you do

it’s funny because you’d think the opposite would be true

It’s funny that it’s not funny at all that I do find myself here

 

When I first met you, we used to talk for hours

Staying up all night, we had so much to share

When I first met you, you used to buy me flowers

But now my empty vase just sits there  

 

It’s funny the longer you love someone..

 

When I first met you, we used to cook together

You would chop and I would stir with such glee

But now it seems that we have hit our stormy weather

I look around, there’s no one to be found, it’s just little me

 

It’s funny the longer you love someone …


 

Why don’t you come down © 2014 or 2015?

 

Why don’t you come down

Why don’t you come down?

Why don’t you come and see?

Come down and just be?

Why don’t you come down and spend a little time with me?

 

There’s boats in the harbor, trains on the tracks

Birds in the sky, flying so high

But they always seem to make it back like how I wish you would

 

Why don’t you come down

Why don’t you come down?

Why don’t you come and see?

Come down and just be?

Why don’t you come down and spend a little time with me?

 

Time keeps ticking on and you’re not here

Oh my darling I would wait for a hundred years

Just to hold you, to have you here by my side

Oh my darling, that would feel so right

My darling, where are you tonight?


 

Why don’t you come down

Why don’t you come down?

Why don’t you come and see?

Come down and just be?

Why don’t you come down and spend a little time with me?


 

 

Somebody © 2017

I don’t know you, you don’t know me but let’s get together

I don’t know how it’s true, but just lookin at you, life’s lookin better

 

I’ve been feelin kinda scared to put myself out there

Feelin’ so unprepared, and I hope that you don’t care

Just when I saw you walk across that room, I just knew

I had to talk to you

 

So where are you from? What do you do? Do you have any pets?

Let’s skip small talk, just get right down to

Love, loss, joy and regrets

 

I’ve been feelin kinda scared to put myself out there

Feelin’ so unprepared, and now I just don’t care

And  when I saw you walk across that room, I just knew

I had to talk to you

 

It just seems like everybody’s got somebody

I wanna be somebody too

And I know that you don’t know me

But my heart is true

 

My heart is true…. X 3

 

So what do you think: two peas in a pod or do opposites attract?

‘Cause I’m new at this thing, I’ve been lookin’ around,

But now I don’t want to look back

 

I’ve been feelin kinda scared to put myself out there

Feelin’ so unprepared, and now I just don’t care

And  when I saw you walk across that room, I just knew

I had to talk to you

 

It just seems like everybody’s got somebody

I wanna be somebody too

And I know that you don’t know me

But my heart is true

 

My heart is true…. X 3

 

I wanna be somebody too

I wanna be somebody to you

 

peacocks and pyramids 2004

I've eaten in restaurants with peacocks in the garden

I've climbed the pyramids of days gone by

 

swum in the ocean and the cooling rivers

watched the sun set and rise in this vast sky

i've travelled on buses, boats and bicycles

i've walked the streets for miles and miles

 

but i would trade my peacocks and pyramids

for one of your smiles

‘Cause finding you, finding love

has been the most worthwhile

 

i've seen king's castles

and those made of sand

tasted the sweetest chocolate in the land

seen art that's moved me,

music that's soothed me

 

but i would trade my castles and chocolates

just to look in your eyes

cause finding you , finding love

was the greatest surprise

 

I’ve seen mountains and butterflies

children's faces

silver mines, and salsa dance, and fireworks above

crocodiles and dolphins , many places

would have been nothing

without your love

 

but i would trade my mountains and butterflies

just to be with you tonight

cause finding you, finding love

was the greatest delight
