Fadd9 Csus4 Bb F
life without you is strange
nothing here has changed
i wonder if you've noticed

is life without me strange
everything feels the same
I wonder if you've noticed

Fadd9 Csus4 Bb F C7
life without you is strange
things don't seem to have changed
it feels as if they should have
i really think they should have

Fadd9 Csus4 Bb C7
and i wonder if i have it in me
to get up the courage to tell you
that I miss you…

i wish that i could get to know you better
it feels as if we lost all our time
i wasted precious chances feeling nervous
and now i… and now i…

Bb C7
i wish that i had noticed
i'm sorry i didn't notice

Fadd9 Csus4 Bb F
cuz life without you is strange
nothing here has changed
i wonder if you've noticed

is life without me strange
everything feels the same
I wonder if you've noticed?

Fadd9 Csus4 Bb F C7
life without you is strange
things don't seem to have changed
it feels as if they should have
i really think they should have

Fadd9 Csus4 Bb F
life without you is strange
nothing here has changed
i wonder if you've noticed

is life without me strange
everything feels the same
I wonder if you've noticed?
please tell me you noticed something

Track Name: heart drought
F#m A B E

I fell in love with a wounded man
he tried to hold my hand, he tried
I fell in love but he went away
he refused to stay with me
and now I, I am left
and now I'm second best
but I'm gonna try……
I refuse to hide
I am broken
but not for long
no not for long
no not for long
no not for long…..

I fell in love with a shaken man
but he couldn't hold my hand, no no
he left me straight when he left that day
and i never was the same again
i shed my skin

watch out before you fall out
before you fall away
before you fall away
watch out this is heart drought
there is no ocean sway
and all your world is gray
watch your back

i fell in love with a lonely man
but he wouldn't hold my hand, no he won't
i fell in love down from the sky above
and i soon learned agony's weight, pulling me down, pulling down
whoa…

i fell in love with the enemy
you were never a friend to me
i fell in love with this cruel cruel guy
makes me wonder why
i ever loved to start with
was it love or was it just a misconception?
was it love, was it love?

i thought I loved a wounded guy
i thought i would make him mine
i thought my feelings were secure
but now I am so unsure
was it love or was it just some construct of what this world wants me to feel?
Track Name: need you
am G F C

I might be simple
but I still get worried
and you might seem strong
but I know where your fears are
you want to stay here
cuz you think we need you
and you won't even leave us
cuz you think we need you

pack up, just leave, get out of here
cuz we don't need you
just leave this whole thing behind
cuz we don't even need you

I know it's hard
to not be needed
and I know your excuses
cuz you just want to feel needed
you want to stay here
even though it feels so wrong
but you need to leave here
so you can find where you belong

pack up, just leave, get out of here
cuz we don't need you
just leave this whole thing behind
cuz we don't even need you

you say you love me
and it'll last a whole life long
but I can't go with you
cuz this is where I belong

pack up, just leave, get out of here
cuz we don't need you
just leave this whole thing behind
cuz you don't even need me
Track Name: beautiful
Bb Gm Eb F

don't hold back i know that you are hurting
i have felt the same way and i want you to hear me
when i say i'll listen to every word that you spill

don't be afraid you are only learning
to embrace your fears and to really see
and if there's anything i can do to help you, i will

Gm Eb Bb F

come here
i know how you're feeling

i understand more than you can know

so obsessed with being pretty
you can't even hear me
when i say that you
are beautiful

Eb Bb

Bb Gm Eb F

let me help you shed your insecurities
i know what it's like to be cruel to yourself
and i want you to know that it gets so much better from here

opening up is the first stage to release
and when you feel ugly i'll be there to help
and tell you that you are more than just your fears

Gm Eb Bb F

come here
i've been where you're standing
i have felt the same fears
i know what it's like to lack strength

so obsessed with you own flaws that
you're blind to love around you
and when we say that you
are beautiful

Eb Bb F
you're beautiful, beautiful

Gm Eb Bb F

come here
i know how you're feeling
please just talk to me

Track Name: a song for the holidays
oo1o oo11 o211 F

for so long i was afraid
to ever say i could feel that way
i was too scared to speak my mind
i thought that the truth would make you unkind

0111 F

but i like you quite a lot
yeah, i like you quite a lot
and it's too much for me now
it is too much for me now

oo1o oo11 o211 F

when i left i seemed to finally
get up the courage to be just me
maybe not strong and maybe not right
but i did my best and i'm alright

0111 F

but i miss you quite a lot
yeah, i miss you quite a lot
and it's too much for me now
it is too much for me now

C7 oo1o A7 Bb
but i'm willing to wait until you're home
G7
that's all i need

oo1o oo11 o211 F

just come home, i'll be here
i'll be yours if you're near
holidays don't last very long
just come home, i'll sing this song

0111 F

i hope you missed me quite a lot
did you miss me quite a lot?
is it too much for you now?
is it too much for you now?

C7 oo1o A7 Bb
are you waiting until you've reached home
G7
to call my name
Track Name: sarah's song
A Aadd9 f#m Asus4

first date, first kiss
your lips, i'll miss
you drove away
but i won't regret

your move, hands fold
suddenly, i'm bold
all night, we stay
and i won't forget

f#m Asus4 A Aadd9
i've heard it said
that it shouldn't be worth it
but the lives those people lead
were probably the pits

and i'm sorry if
i ever lose my wits
i am hopeless, i admit

A Aadd9 f#m Asus4

we talk, keep close
why won't time slow?
before long, you go
and i am standing all alone

i walk you out
so cold, no coat
shivering, winds blow
and i feel like i have grown

f#m Asus4 A Aadd9
some people say
that it's never worth it
but i bet they
never even tried it

and i'm sorry that
i always lose my wits
i am hopeless, i admit

i am hopeless, i admit

i am hopeless, i admit

i am hopeless, i admit
Track Name: day job
G7 Cmajor7 D7 em

steal my heart will you now, and will you keep it locked inside
inside a safe where you can save it from having to decide
between the freedom it could have and the normalcy that you provide
but you cannot contain me and I will not be tied here

o222 em x2

G7 Cmajor7 D7 em

the new display that's a sight-sation i am
feeling somehow a lack of motivation do you
really think this is some sort of salvation

o222 em x2

G7 Cmajor7 D7 em

buy my heart with your high connections though I
need the money i still must make my objections but

Track Name: i can't lie
f#m, A, C#, D

I can't lie when you are around
I can't lie to your face
all these people surround me
and I've begun to lose faith

I can't lie when you hold me close
I can't lie in your embrace
all these people know my name
but they don't really know me

I can't lie when you're around
can't be lost, I can't be found
I can't lie when you're around me
I can't lie when you're mine,
can't pretend that I'm fine
I can't lie when you're mine and only mine

I can't lie when you keep me near
I can't lie because I love you
all these people make a lot of noise
but they don't say a thing

I can't lie when you're around
can't be lost, I can't be found
I can't lie when you're around me
I can't lie when you're mine,
can't pretend that I'm fine
I can't lie when you're mine and only mine
you're always mine...
Track Name: swept up in the tides
F#m, Dsus2, A

Lost and confused
Like a shock of thunder
All your sense has left you
And now you're falling under

No one deserves
To feel left behind
But the ocean keeps on rolling
And we are swept up in the tides

Life falls apart
With a single word
You feel your insides crumble
And your loss remains uncured

No one deserves
To lose so soon
When the pain strikes unexpected
The world goes dark in an afternoon

G, D, A
And you run, run away
There is so much pain
And you know it will catch you
You are broken but you'll make do

F#m, Dsus2, A
No one deserves
To feel left behind
But the ocean keeps on rolling
And we are swept up in the tides

G, D, A
And you run, run away
And you run, run away
And you run, run away
And you run, run away

F#m, Dsus2, A
No one deserves
To be so marred
We just hope that we can learn
And that these wounds will turn to scars

G, D, A
And you run, run away
And you run, run away
And you run, run away
And you run, run (hold) away
Track Name: grasping sand
Bb, o 2 1 1, Eb, Bb

Patience they urge me
Patience they say
Stay strong they tell me
Don't let love slip away
But I can't help but think
That something here is wrong
With every single kiss we share
I realize that you're not there
Maybe I am better off without
And every time you say my name
Something inside is not the same
And all I want to do is scream and shout

Don't give in to trouble
Don't let your fears win
They say if I hold on
We will fall in love again
But I can't help but feel
That I am not that strong
Every time that you are kind
I feel like I'm being confined
And every word you say is a speech
And every time you hold my hand
I feel like I am grasping sand
And you will slip right out of my reach

I keep saying we're fine
Wanting to pretend that you're still mine
But the truth is we're on the decline
Just sitting here
On this fault line

Because…

With every single kiss we share
I realize that you're not there
Maybe I am better off without
And every time you say my name
Something inside is not the same
And all I want to do is scream and shout
And every time that you are kind
I feel like I'm being confined
And every word you say is a speech
And every time you hold my hand
I feel like I am grasping sand
And you will slip right out of my reach
And every time you hold my hand
I feel like I am grasping sand
And you will slip right out of my reach
Track Name: oh, dear
Bm Em G F#m

am i a fool
for being so enamored with you
i thought your words were true

i am a fool
cuz i thought that you were feeling it too
but now we are through
and i can see i'm not the one for you

Em Bm

Bm F#m

oh, dear
why did i fall for you
when you don't love me too
why did i fall for you

Em F#m

I was wrong
when i thought that you were mine
i was wrong
how could i ever be so blind?

Bm Em G F#m

i am so used
to having my heart fall through
this is nothing new
i'm just a slave to gravity's cue

i feel so used
and i never know what to do
i misconstrued
i thought your heart matched my feelings for you

Em Bm

Bm F#m

oh, dear
why did i fall for you
when you can't love me too
why did i fall for you

oh, dear
what do i say to you
when you don't love me too?

Em F#m

i was wrong
when i thought you felt for me
i was wrong
it isn't hard to see

i was wrong

Bm F#m

oh, dear
why did i fall for you
when you don't love me too
why did i fall for you
