    Free Free

    Been feeling out of sync
    Been feeling off track
    Been feeling so removed
    Been feeling so detached
    Maybe it’s society’s rules
    That give us the constant blues
    We don’t need to feel this way
    We should have the right to say
    Don’t define us, or confine us
    Be all that you want to be
    Live your life truly free
    Free… Free
    So afraid to fall
    Scared to risk at all
    Then panic rushes in
    Like a loyal friend
    Maybe it’s society’s rules
    That give us the constant blues
    We don’t need to feel this way
    We should have the right to say
    Don’t define us, or confine us
    Be all that you want to be
    Live your life truly free
    Be all that you want to be
    Live your life truly free
    Free… Free
    Riding down life’s bumpy road
    Emotion overload
    Want to stop the voices in your head
    Put negativity to bed
    Don’t define us, or confine us
    Be all that you want to be
    Live your life truly free
    Be all that you want to be
    Live your life truly free
    Be all that you want to be
    Live your life truly free (repeat 2 lines)
    So free, So free (yeah, yeah) So free

    Bare
    I'm here stripped down and bare
    Asking you to see me for the first time
    I'm aware you're lost and scared
    Afraid to get to know me and take my dare
    We've done this dance for way too long
    This space between us just feels wrong
    Has our love become an idle chore?
    It feels that way when you shut the door
    I'm here stripped down and bare
    Asking you to see me for the first time
    I'm aware you're lost and scared
    Afraid to get to know me and take my dare
    I've been waiting for years in vain
    Cause I know deep down you'll never change
    I've been putting on such a great facade
    While inside I'm crumbling, falling apart
    I'm here stripped down and bare
    Asking you to see me for the first time
    I'm aware you're lost and scared
    Afraid to get to know me and take my dare
    I come to you devoid of pride
    You enrapture me, I must confide
    But your fleeting affection will never be enough
    I want all of you is that asking for too much?
    I'm here stripped down and bare
    Asking you to see me for the first time
    I'm aware you're lost and scared
    Afraid to get to know me and take my dare
    I'm here, right here, stripped down and bare

    Beautiful Neurosis
    I'm still like a blade of grass waiting for a morning shower
    I'm swimming in a sea of doubt surveying my future
    Seems like every road I take always leads me back to nowhere
    Feels like I'm riding a wave pulling me under
    Often I feel strangled by others views pushed on me
    I’ll make my own choices in my own time
    Maybe it’s my excuse to avoid the simple truth
    Could be I’ve been getting in my own way
    When the world seems out of focus
    And the mountains are too high to climb
    We look through rose-colored glasses
    at our beautiful neurosis
    Sometimes I'm running so fast; I can't catch up to myself
    Somedays I'm pushing so hard; I can't seem to breathe
    What's this elusive thing that I am always after?
    What will I sacrifice to finally succeed?
    When the world seems out of focus
    And the mountains are too high to climb
    We look through rose-colored glasses
    at our beautiful neurosis
    No one understands me, like we all speak another language
    Maybe words would make more sense if we spoke them more slowly
    I'm tired of sitting here watching everyone on the playground
    You can't win if you never play the game so I better get busy
    When the world seems out of focus
    And the mountains are too high to climb
    We look through rose-colored glasses
    at our beautiful neurosis.
    When the world seems out of focus
    And the mountains too high to climb
    We look through rose-colored glasses
    at our beautiful...

    Don't Run Away
                            Every time things get a little rough for you
                            You always seem to flee on cue
                            Never sticking round to work things out
                            So scared of confrontation, so filled with doubt
                            When you run away
                            Your troubles follow close behind
                            You try and let them go
                            But they’re holding on too tight
                            You keep run, run, running away
                            You can’t live your life this way
                            It’s gonna catch up with you someday
                            Stop running
                            Don’t run away
                            When you go away, you never look back
                            Unaware of the damage, left in your path
                            You’re beaten down and misunderstood
                            You never mean to hurt, say that’s not your plan
                            When you run away
                            Your troubles follow close behind
                            You try and let them go
                            But they’re holding on too tight
                            You keep run, run, running away
                            You can’t live your life this way
                            It’s gonna catch up with you someday
                            Stop running...
                            I can’t remember the last time you let me in
                            Needing help is not some kind of sin
                            You’re full of pride and so much pain inside
                            You choose to be alone, Do it all on your own
                            You keep run, run, running away
                            You keep run, run, running away
                            You keep run, run, running away
                            Run, Run, Run, Run, Run…
                            You keep run, run, running away
                            You can’t live your life this way
                            It’s gonna catch up with you someday
                            Stop running, Don’t run away

    Flawed

    You look at me
    Unaware of the judgment in your stare
    You affect me in ways you’ll never know, ohhh
    You inspire me to be better, better than I thought possible
    But you expect things I don’t know I can always give
    I’m flawed, I am, I am
    I don’t have the perfect master plan
    I try so hard to get it right
    But sometimes I fail, I fail
    So self-assured
    That’s how others always seem to view me
    They don’t know the fear I hide down deep inside
    I wish I had half your courage, half your inner strength
    I’ve come a long way but I’m still far from where I want to be
    I’m flawed, I am, I am
    I don’t have the perfect master plan
    I try so hard to get it right
    But sometimes I fail, I fail
    I’ve had my ups and downs and you’ve always been around
    Pushing me right on through when I didn’t know what to do
    I’ve found the peace i need even when I don’t succeed
    Cause I know I will someday in my own time, in my own way
    I’m flawed, I am, I am
    I don’t have the perfect master plan
    I try so hard to get it right
    But sometimes I fail, I fail
    I’m flawed, I am, I am
    I don’t have the perfect master plan
    Sometimes I faulter, sometimes I fall
    But with you... in my life... I know I’ll prevail

    Walk Away
    I never thought it would be this hard to let go
    But giving up's much harder
    Through the years, I look back on all that could've been
    And taste the salt of my wasted tears
    Why did you walk away?
    If it's not me, then who's to blame?
    When all that I do, is keep thinkin' of you
    And without you by my side... What damn good am I?
    Do you ever think about me, when no one's loving you?
    Or is the memory of me oh so faint?
    I wonder where you are, and what your life's like
    And who's the girl in your arms, night after night?
    Why did you walk away?
    If it's not me, then who's to blame?
    When all that I do, is keep thinkin' of you
    And without you by my side... What damn good am I?
    Somebody's got to hear my story
    Somebody's got to replace your kiss
    Somebody's got to show me that there's more than just holding onto this
    Why did you walk away?
    If it's not me, then who's to blame?
    When all that I do, is keep thinkin' of you
    And without you by my side... What damn good am I?
    Why did you walk away?
    If it's not me, then who's to blame?
    When all that I do, all that I do, is keep thinkin'… of you
    Why did you walk away?
    Who’s to blame?
    All that I do…
    I keep thinking… of you
