Katy Perry – Wide Awake

“Wide Awake”

I’m wide awake [2x]

(I’m wide awake)
Yeah, I was in the dark
I was falling hard
With an open heart
(I’m wide awake)
How did I read the stars so wrong?

(I’m wide awake)
And now it’s clear to me
That everything you see
Ain’t always what it seems
(I’m wide awake)
Yeah, 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
‘Til I woke up on—
On the concrete

Falling from cloud nine
Crashing from the high
I’m letting go tonight
Yeah, I’m falling from cloud nine

(I’m wide awake)
Not losing any sleep
I picked up every piece
And landed on my feet
(I’m wide awake)
Need nothing to complete myself, no

(I’m wide awake)
Yeah, I am born again
Out of the lion’s den
I don’t have to pretend
(And it’s too late)
The story’s over now, the end

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

Falling from cloud nine
(It was out of the blue)
I’m crashing from the high
I’m letting go tonight
(Yeah, I’m letting you go)
I’m falling from cloud nine

(I’m wide awake)
Thunder rumbling
Castles crumbling
(I’m wide awake)
I am trying to hold on

(I’m wide awake)
God knows that I tried
Seeing the bright side
(I’m wide awake)
I’m not blind anymore

I’m wide awake [2x]

Yeah, I’m falling from cloud nine
(It was out of the blue)
Crashing from the high
You know I’m letting go tonight
(Yeah, I’m letting you go)
I’m falling from cloud nine

I’m wide awake [5x]

Buffalo sauce sayings…

buffalo-1436182_960_720

We went to the zoo today, and my 9 yr old daughter pointed over at the buffalo and said, “Well, there’s what makes our sauce!”

It didn’t register with me at first what she had actually said.  Then when I realized what she meant, I couldn’t stop laughing.  She always succeeds in making me laugh.  Lol…

Thank you my sweet Auti for always being you.  I think one of the reasons God gave me you was because he knew I needed to laugh more.  You bring a rainbow of color wherever you go and the sun never stops shining when you’re around.

Julia Michaels – Issues

I’m jealous
I’m over zealous
When I’m down
I get real down

When I’m high
I don’t come down
I get angry
Baby, believe me
I could love
You just like that
And I could leave
You just this fast

But you don’t
Judge me
Cause if you did, baby
I would judge you too
No, you don’t
Judge me
Cause if you did, baby
I would judge you too

Cause I got issues
But you got ’em too
So give ’em all to me
And I’ll give mine to you
Bask in the glory
Of all our problems
Cause we got the kind of love
It takes to solve ’em

Yeah, I got issues
And one of them is how bad
I need you

You do shit on purpose
You get mad and
You break things
Feel bad
Try to fix things
But you’re perfect
Poorly wired circuit
And got hands
Like an ocean
Push you out
Pull you back in

Cause you don’t
Judge me
Cause if you did, baby
I would judge you too
No, you don’t judge me
Cause you see it from the same
Point of view

Cause I got issues
But you got ’em too
So give ’em all to me
And I’ll give mine to you
Bask in the glory
Of all our problems
Cause we got the kind of love
It takes to solve ’em

Yeah, I got issues
And one of them is how bad
I need you

And one of them is how bad
I need you
(I got issues, you got ’em too)

Cause I got issues
But you got ’em too
So give ’em all to me
And I’ll give mine to you
Bask in the glory
Of all our problems
Cause we got the kind of love
It takes to solve ’em

Yeah, I got issues
And one of them is how bad
I need you
(You got ’em too)
Yeah, I got issues
(I got issues)
And one of them is how bad
I need you
(You got ’em too)
Yeah, I got issues
(I got)
And one of them is how bad
I need you

Anywhere But Here – SafetySuit

“Anywhere But Here”

Is this the end of the moment or just a beautiful unfolding
Of a love that will never be or maybe be
Everything that I never thought could happen or ever come to pass and I wonder
If maybe, maybe I could be all you ever dreamed, cause you are

Beautiful inside, so lovely and I can’t see why I’d do anything without you, you are
And when I’m not with you, I know that it’s true
That I’d rather be anywhere but here without you

Is this a natural feeling or is it just me bleeding
All my thoughts and dreams in hope that you will be with me or
Is this a moment to remember or just a cold day in December, I wonder
If maybe, maybe I could be all you ever dreamed cause you are

Beautiful inside, so lovely and I can’t see why I’d do anything without you, you are
And when I’m not with you, I know that it’s true
That I’d rather be anywhere but here without you

Is this the end of the moment or just a beautiful unfolding of a love that will never be for you and me
Cause you are

You’re beautiful inside, you’re so lovely and I can’t see why I’d do anything without you, you are
And when I’m not with you, I know that it’s true
That I’d rather be anywhere but here without you

All Of The Stars – Ed Sheeran

“All Of The Stars”

It’s just another night
And I’m staring at the moon
I saw a shooting star
And thought of you
I sang a lullaby
By the waterside and knew
If you were here
I’d sing to you
You’re on the other side
As the skyline splits in two
Miles away from seeing you

But I can see the stars from America
I wonder, do you see them too?

So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will lead
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
But both of our hearts believe
All of these stars will guide us home

I can hear your heart
On the radio beat
They’re playing ‘Chasing Cars’
And I thought of us
Back to the time
You were lying next to me
I looked across and fell in love
So I took your hand
Back through lamp-lit streets and knew
Everything led back to you

So can you see the stars over Amsterdam?
Hear the song my heart is beating to?

So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will lead
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
But both of our hearts believe
All of these stars will guide us home

And, oh, I know
And oh, I know, oh
And I know oh oh oh

I can see the stars from America

Well, I’ve got some rather exciting news to tell all of you about, and I just can’t hold it in any longer. Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been rather aloof these days, and I promise you, it comes with good reason. I have been secretly working on 12 poetry books, and my […]
