Juliana Que The production is beautiful, the singing is fancy and fun, and the lyrics are once again story-like and genuine. I especially related to Losing Touch, it touched me on such an emotional level. Maya's music satisfies the soul. Favorite track: losing touch.

Track Name: winter heart
E B A B
snow — it falls, one flake
and now i break
i stop, you start
my winter heart (oooo)
(heart — ooooo)

cold — i know it well
but you make me melt
the frost, it parts
on my winter heart (oooo)
(heart — ooooo)

A B E A
you are the bloom that is creating room
as you spread out your roots
i’ll be the sea after you’ve melted me
and i’ve let myself go —you know


E B A B
snow — it falls, one flake
and now i break
i stop, you start
my winter heart (oooo)
(heart — ooooo)

(slow again)

cold — i know it well
but you make me melt
the frost, it parts
on my winter heart (low)
Track Name: fool
F Dm C
you’ve got a lot of work to do; i really don’t envy you
F
so many troubles that you don’t even know…
F Dm C
every time you think you’ve made it; you look back and now you hate it
Dm Bb F
thinking you’ll get smarter once you’re grown…. oh…. grown…


F Eb
but it doesn’t really matter what you think you really want ‘cuz most of the time you’re wrong
in the end it’s all this shit that tells us who we are, we mess everything up til it’s gone

C Bb
and it’s so hard, yeah it’s crazy
F C Dm
growing up is so cruel
C Bb
and i’ve learned so much lately
F C Dm
and that’s how i know i’m a fool

F

F Dm C
you’ve got a lot of things to say and people who will get in your way
F
i wouldn’t worry too much; you’ll be alright
F Dm C
don’t just trust what you learn; there’s things you’ll assume and not earn
Dm Bb F
everything doesn’t need to become a fight… alright? alright…

F Eb
but it doesn’t really matter what you think you really need ‘cuz most of the time you’re wrong
in the end it’s all this shit that tells us who we are, we mess everything up til it’s gone

C Bb
and it’s so hard and it’s so slow
F C Dm
being so young is so cruel
C Bb
and there’s so much i still don’t know
F C Dm
and that’s how i know i’m a fool

C Bb
and it’s so hard, yeah it’s crazy
F C Dm
growing up is so cruel
C Bb
and i’ve learned so much lately
F C Dm Dm F
and that’s how i know i’m a fool…. fool… fool.
Track Name: only you
F C Bb F
time — i’ve been spending all this time hoping you’d wake
open up your heart and melt like a snowflake
return all the love you’ve got for goodness sake
but i guess it’s all my mistake

years — all these years all that i wanted was you
just shut up cuz i’m not taking your excuse
throw away your doubts and do what you want to
it’s only you — only you —


F C Bb C
if only you — you could figure me out
we’d be better right now and i’d never doubt your — your love
give me something real
just tell me how you feel — if you open up then that’s enough

F C Bb F
(humming)


F C Bb F
scared — i’m so scared that you’re gonna let go of me
turn your heart to stone and sink down to the sea
look me in the eyes and fill this vacancy
cuz only — only you —

F C Bb C
only you — you can figure me out
and i need that right now; i don’t want to doubt your — your love
tell me this is real
i’ve shown you how i feel — if you open up then that’s enough

F C Bb C
(humming)

Bb Dm C C special (o4o3)
you have always been the only one that i could let into my heart… oh…

F C Bb C
only you — you can figure me out
my heart is in your hands now; i refuse to doubt your — your love
i know this is real
and i know how you feel — when you open up, well, that’s enough
Track Name: your ways
F C7 Bb C7
i’ll be losing sleep
and you’ll be losing me
i don’t wanna speak
it’s too hard to breathe

Bb C7 F Bb
cuz i know your ways
and i know you won’t stay
C7
with me…

F C7 Bb C7
i gotta let you go
trouble never is alone
F Bb C7 Bb
i can’t call you my own, not any more…

Bb C7 F Bb
cuz i know your ways
and i know you can’t stay
C7
with me… with me…
Bb C7 F Bb
yeah i know your ways
i wish that i could get you to stay
but i know what you will say…

F C7 Bb C7
that you’ve been losing sleep
and you’re just worried about me
F Bb C7 Bb
you’re afraid of what they see, well that’s not me…

Bb C7 F Bb
see, i know your ways
you care too much about what people might say
and i don’t have any time for their hate
who cares if the road in between us ain’t straight?
Track Name: should i stay
G D7 C G
i’ve never been good at moments like this
i don’t know what i should do
i thought i’d found somebody to love
when i first fell for you

C G
should i stay? should i go?
will your love for me grow?

G D7 C G
should i pick up my bags and be on my way?
should i stay? should i stay?

i don’t remember how this first began
but i know that we were friends
your every touch gave me butterflies
but i guess that’s how it always begins

C G
should i stay? i don’t know
will this pain ever slow?

G D7 C G
should i give up this fight and turn away?
should i stay? should i stay?

C G
should i stay on my own?
should i keep my heart sewn?

G D7 C G
i don’t want to keep my feelings at bay
should i stay? should i stay?

G D7 Em C
just give me a moment and hear what i say
i wish you had a reason that would make me want to stay

i wish that you would turn my way
and make me stay, make me stay

G6 B7 Em Cm
i wish that you would turn my way
and make me stay, make me stay

G or G6
make me stay
Track Name: warned
D A G D
i — i wanna believe — all the things that you tell me
i wish that i could trust my heart when you’re near me
A G D
i’ve been too eager before
my heart can’t bear much more
and you — you don’t get it
you don’t love me like i want — just admit it
and i — i’m so torn
i wish that i’d been warned

D A G D
i’m trying my best to show some vulnerability
i’m so used to having that used against me
A G D
i’ve been too open before
got hurt and then turned sore
but you — you might get it
say you love me like i want — just admit it
and i can’t stand this fear
please just come over here

Em D
i keep trying to be strong
maybe that’s what’s wrong
D7 G
so focused on moving on
A Em
i couldn’t see what i was longing for…
only knowing that i wanted more

Em G D
cuz you — i think you get it
A G D
show me all the love you got — i’ll accept it
and i — i’m not torn
and now you have been warned
yeah, now you have been warned

Track Name: emotion
Am Dm B7 Am
you love me like water, always slipping through my fingers
i hold on to what you give me, always hoping you will linger

you don’t let me feel safe, you’re always pushing away
i rip myself to shreds, darling please come back to bed, is this love i can’t remember

Dm B7 C Am
and you, you tell me, that i’m delusional
your eyes imply that all this is my fault
Dm E
but all i want is some emotion

Am Dm B7 Am
your kisses are commands, always stinging me like sand
i never saw how much they hurt me, no i didn’t understand

you don’t like it when i’m strong, you’re always telling me i’m wrong
i can’t go on this way, please god please don’t let me stay, i don’t want to be stranded

Dm B7 C Am
and you, you tell me, that i’m delusional
your eyes imply that all this is my fault
and you, you’re so goddamn casual
and i break down, cuz i feel so fragile

Dm E
all i wanted was some emotion

Dm B7 C Am
and i know that i am not delusional
there’s no point in saying who’s at fault
and i, i know all the things you do
and i refuse to tie my worth to you

Dm E Am
i have found my emotion
Track Name: broken
G D7 C
baby don't break my heart
you can keep it as a souvenir
remembering fondly times when you were here
i hope you'll keep it near

i never expected you to find me here
i was too consumed in my fear
remembering times when i was someone else's dear
but you were so sincere

Am Em D7 B7
it's hard to forget times when you've been broken
i hope you don't mind that i've been broken

G D7 C
baby i'm so alone
stuck inside my own memory
remembering times before you and me
hoping to become "we"

i never expected you to settle me
i was too afraid to even see
that you were there to come and set me free
you became my key

Am Em D7 B7
it's hard to forget times when you've been broken
i hope you don't mind that i've been broken

C D7 G C
i hope you'll never see all the way through me
C D7 B7
i hope you'll never know what i let go

G D7 C
you won't break my heart
this much i can see
now i know that you will always be here
i'll place myself in your keep
Track Name: thoughts
D A7 G D
i am not
the girl you thought i was
i forgot
i went and grew and didn’t tell you

G A7 D
but i am not sorry, we all change
and learn to face our worries
like you, and all the times when you hurt me
i have out grown your power over me

A7 G D
but still you try to trample me

G A7 D G
do you think i’m weak?
do you think i’m small?
well thoughts are funny things
when they’re not right at all…

D A7 G D
i am not
the child you took me for
i have fought
my way through pain and fear

G A7 D
i have grown strong while you weren’t looking
stood up on my own and learned to follow through
is it scary that i am now standing up to you?
i have outgrown my need to please you

A7 G D
but still, you think i’m scared of you

G A7 D G
you told me i was weak
you thought that i was small
well thoughts are funny things
when they’re not right at all…

D A7 G D
i am more than what you thought of me

Track Name: regret song
Em Bm A7
i deserve this… i brought it on myself
ignored my feelings and said no to help

i am not usually this sort of stupid but i
lost sight in all my emotion

Em Bm
ooo (etc) x4

Em Bm A7
i have always leapt before i looked
caught feelings and quickly gotten hooked

it never really bothered me if i got a little hurt but
this time i think it’s too much

Em Bm
ooo (etc) x4

Em D A7
aaa (etc)

Em Bm A7
i can’t even pretend to be surprised
i should have seen this coming, i cannot justify

all the stupid shit that i have done
i feel ridiculous with all this emotion


Em Bm…….A
ooo
