Say You Will (That's What She Said, 2017)

It’s Friday night, and I feel alright And I’m ready to roll

Out on the town in the city lights Let’s get out of control

Hit the strip and we’re on our way Pour me a shot of gold

Bottoms up and I hope you say

 

Say you will (say you will)

But I know you won’t (but I know you won’t) Say you will (say you will)

But I know you won’t

 

Got some cash, and we’re ready to play

We got no time to kill

There’s no tomorrow, there’s no yesterday This is not a drill

Roll the dice, we’ve got all night

I gotta buy some luck

Grab your bag and buckle up tight Cuz we don’t give a --

 

Say you will (say you will)

But I know you won’t (but I know you won’t) C’mon and Say you will (say you will)

But I know you won’t

 

I know you want to give in Just let it happen, my friend Say you won’t do it again

I can’t go on and pretend

 

I know you want to give in Just let it happen, my friend Say you won’t do it again

I can’t go on and pretend

It’s time to make the descent

Say you won’t do it again

Held Under (That's What She Said, 2017)

The captive hides in the water giving more than a passing glance growing eyes toward the slaughter this didn't happen just by chance

 

it's not your fault, I know

it's time to cut the loss you chose

stay down before you go

held under oath

 

Scrutiny is your killer

Reigning high above the gods

once you see such a thriller

you'll trust no one but who we are

 

it's not your fault, I know

it's time to cut the loss you chose

stay down before you go

held under oath

 

and I never thought I'd see another day and I never once forgot the price you'd pay and I see the power that you really crave submission takes a toll you can't erase

 

I can’t help feeling you’re

pulling me, now I can’t breathe Falling and crawling, now

I can’t breathe, and it’s killing me

 

it's not your fault, I know held under oath

 

chorus

 

I know... I know... I know

Maybe (Smile and a Bullet, 2015)

How do you know when it starts to go? Do your feelings show? Can you just let go? Watch the rain hit the pavement hard but you look to the sky the night so dark.

How do you know when it starts to go? in your head, all you see is no?

When it’s right, it just goes away, your heart wants to say, “OK.”

 

You know how it feels when you can’t stop waiting for the phone to ring once more You know how it feels cuz all you wanna do is keep laughing on the floor

You know how it feels just right when you’re head over heels even though you swore You’d never feel this way again...

 

It’s four (o’ clock) in the morning, and we’re still awake

You’re so afraid of jumpin’ cuz it’ll be a mistake

How do you know it’s meant to be? I guess we’ll have to just wait and see

So... maybe.

 

How do you know? Does it take a while? Can you see the change, even in my style? I don’t know but the other night in your arms so tight made me smile and smile.

How do you know when it starts to brew? When all I can think about is the truth?

I think it happened the moment that I opened my eyes lying next to you.

 

It’s five (o’clock) in the morning, and we’re still awake

I’m so afraid of jumpin’ cuz it’ll be a mistake

How do you know it’s meant to be? I guess that’s up to you and me. So just... maybe. We’ll have to wait and see...

 

We’re good team together; like a needle and thread.

We could talk for hours, nothing left unsaid, never

been here before but I’m likin’ it more than you could ever imagine in your head

 

You know how it feels when you can’t stop waiting for the phone to ring once more You know how it feels cuz the feelings are getting even harder to ignore

You know how it feels just right when you’re head over heels even though you swore You’d never feel this way again...

 

It’s seven o’ clock in the morning, and we’re still awake

We’re soakin’ up the sunrise and it can’t be a mistake

How do you know it’s meant to be? There’s a new day here for us to believe in.

Maybe... Maybe... Maybe

You Can't (That's What She Said, 2017)

I‘m not gonna let you stand in my way

Ain’t nobody got no time to waste away

You can’t have me in my prime

We’re too good for you every single time

 

Love me, hate me, say what you want to break me

You can’t hold me down

Drill me, thrill me, you can never kill me

You can’t hold me down, no no no, no

 

My heart will never give, made of solid rock

My head is never giving you a single shot

My soul is weaving a way to bring to down

You better find your way to another town (and you won’t get out alive)

 

CHORUS x2

 

I can’t carry your broken life

It is not my problem, i am not your carving knife

You gotta take a long look in the mirror

Objects are closer, they're getting nearer and nearer (don’t let yourself cross the line)

 

CHORUS x2

 

No, no, no, no (No, no, no, no) No, no, no, no (No, no, no, no) No, no, no, no

Recall (Smile and a Bullet, 2015)

I recall when we’d stay up all night; staring at the stars.

Or the time I was alone; we stripped away the bars.

I knew it would be hard but somebody coulda told me what was to come. Now it’s up to me to be strong for us to make it through this storm.

 

How am I supposed to deal when I’m miles away from my devotion?

What am I supposed to feel? Living day-by-day, slow motion?

Bow my head, close my eyes and kneel; hopin’ the clouds will part in time.

Long enough for my heart to heal so we can make it through this storm and be just fine.

 

I recall when we’d stay up all night; never seem to fight

Like those times when I was your cure, spun my world with your love, for sure. I knew what was in store but I thought I could control the pain of loneliness. Now it’s up to me to be strong to make this living hell a myth.

 

CHORUS

 

I know it sounds like I’m complainin’ but I need to stop the pain and shame and I know it sounds like I’m complainin’ but I need to stop the pain and shame and I think that if we’re strong together, I think that it is now or never!

Gemini (Smile and a Bullet, 2015)

It always starts out fine,

your heart’s on beat, in sync with mine.

With the tick-tick-tock of time

You slowly fade away, like the many shades of grey.

 

At times I can be a little crazy; at times you can be a little lazy, If it’s true that opposites attract, when will you come back?

 

Is growing up turning red?

I’ve set fire to our bed

With memories of the dead

That road lives in painful bliss, A bittersweet kiss.

 

At times I can be a little crazy, at times you can be a little lazy If it’s true that opposites attract, when will you come back?

 

I want you, I need you, get out before I leave you Can’t make up my mind, it’s killing me inside.

 

I want you, I need you, get out before I leave you Can’t make up my mind, it’s killing me inside.

I want you, I need you, get out before I leave you. Can’t make up my mind on this roller coaster ride.

 

It always ends just fine; your heart’s on beat, in sync with mine.

Get Up (Smile and a Bullet, 2015)

Lay it all out, (whoa, oh-oh)

there’s so much to do (whoa, oh-oh) Write it all down, (whoa, oh-oh)

it’ll help you get through (whoa, oh-oh) The pain from the past (whoa, oh-oh) and what’s going on (whoa, oh-oh) There’s a list on the wall (whoa, oh-oh) and it’s almost dawn (whoa, oh-oh)

No one ever told you life would be cool Keep on doing what they’re telling you to

 

Get up get up back to the grind, there’s a smile and a bullet with you in mind

Why stay down when you’re so close to shining?

 

Time’s going by (whoa, oh-oh)

and the clock is ticking (whoa, oh-oh) Can’t slow down (whoa, oh-oh)

but I keep on thinking (whoa, oh-oh) What’s after this (whoa, oh-oh)

And how’s it gonna be (whoa, oh-oh) When it’s all done (whoa, oh-oh)

now and it’s up to me (whoa, oh-oh) No one ever told you life would be free Keep on writing and sing with me...

 

CHORUS

 

Get up get up back to the grind, there’s a smile and a bullet with you in mind

Why stay down when you’re so close Why stay down when you’re so close

Get up get out back to the grind, there’s a

smile and a bullet with you in mind

Why stay down when you’re so close to shining? Pick your ass up and keep it in line

 

CHORUS x2

 

Get up get up back to the grind, there’s a smile and a bullet with you in mind

Why stay down when you’re so close Why stay down when you’re so close Why stay down when you’re so close to shining?

Seymore (Smile and a Bullet, 2015)

Diligence and perfect grades, and calling home to waive the hate I keep seeing my life fly right by

Waiting in the coffee line just to get my fix on time

Crying in my head, I don’t know why

 

I’m loving you with every breath I have in me Please say out loud, “it’s not enough,” I can be free

 

My spitting image in every daughter;

addict, emotional slaughter

I can’t seem to find my method behind the mad Temporary role model trying

Inside, outside, drowning and flying

Someone feed me my last word

‘cause I need your strength to stop this hurt.

 

Living by the moral flashing in the movie theater and

I write and write and write to figure why

Touch in keeping and repeating, time is fleeting and revealing I don’t know how to muster a reply

 

I’m loving you with secrets kept deep inside me

Just say out loud, “you give enough,” it’ll set my heart free

 

CHORUS

 

My spitting image in every daughter;

addict, emotional slaughter

I can’t seem to find my method behind the mad

10 Ft. (Smile and a Bullet, 2015)

Why do I feel a need to hide behind polite? I’m holding on too tight.

I can hear the cries of my inner light;

I’ve locked her out of sight

 

Each passing day brings tears my way. I can’t escape the disarray This pressing mold won’t be controlled

 

Away with the doubts as I see your face,

Away with the doubts; your words raise me ten feet off the ground

Away with the clouds, you’re my saving grace,

Take the veil away, I see the skies are blue, I’m taking another way around with you.

 

When will I be able to come back, to something not surreal? My spiritual reveal.

When can we become one instead of two?

This time is unbearably cruel when you are

 

CHORUS

 

Each passing day brings tears my way I can’t escape the disarray

Each passing day brings fears my way I can’t escape...

 

CHORUS x2

 

I put that mask up on the shelf, looking back to the place I knew so well.

You take me ten feet off the ground, floating the blissful way down, down, down.

Best of Me (Smile and a Bullet, 2015)

My heart was broken three months out then you walked into my life knowing nothing about the history... and you’re still a mystery. I’ve only know ya just a couple of years and you’ve always been the guy who helped me swallow my fears

but I could never see... that you could get the best of me.

Single this, single that, I wish I didn’t care ‘bout that By and by, through and through, I think I’m really clinging to...

 

Your like, your love, you’re all of the above. You’re everything a girl’s fantasy could ever be of. But before I can learn to live and let go, There’s one thing that you have to know:

 

You get the break up, it’s all in your past You know what people say about you – nice guys finish last but in my head, I know I should be with you instead I’ve never doubted just how you feel But every time that we’re together it just gets more real And I can start to see that you can have the best of me

 

BRIDGE, CHORUS

 

I’m like a puppy dog beggin’ for that one last treat He’s like that tweety bird lookin’ for that kitty cat’s conceit And now I know it’s all I ever wanted, never could repay but do you think that I could let myself step out of the way?

 

CHORUS x2

There’s one thing that you have to know
