“Good Riddance”

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test and known as why
It’s not a question, but a lesson learned in time

It’s something unpredictable, but in the end it’s right
I hope you had the time of your life

So take the photographs and still-frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial
For what it’s worth, it was worth all the while

It’s something unpredictable, but in the end is right
I hope you had the time of your life
It’s something unpredictable, but in the end is right
I hope you had the time of your life

“The Bottom”

Here I am again
Honest and afraid
Doubting who I am
The reason I was made

Here I am again
Vulnerable and lost
Hanging from the edge
So close to falling off

Can I get myself back
Back up from the bottom
Can I get my life back the way it was
Before I got torn up

Can I get myself back
Back up from the bottom
Can I get my life back the way it was
Before I got torn up

Here I am again
Sleepless and confused
Have I met the end
Or am I being used

Here I am again
Ugly and alone
Searching for a sign
Tell me where to go

Can I get myself back
Back up from the bottom
Can I get my life back the way it was
Before I got torn up

Can I get myself back
Back up from the bottom
Can I get my life back the way it was
Before I got torn up

I know there’s no one left to blame
I know I’ve pushed you all the way
I have no further left to fall
I know there’s no one left to blame

I know I’ve pushed you all the way
I have no further left to fall
Can I get myself back
Back up from the bottom

Can I get my life back the way it was
Before I got torn up
Can I get myself back
Back up from the bottom

Can I get my life back the way it was
Before I got torn up
Can I get myself back
Back up from the bottom

Can I get my life back the way it was
Before I got torn up
Before I got torn up
Before I got torn up

“The Fighter”

I don’t need you to save me
I don’t need you to cure me
I don’t need you and your antidote for I am my disease
I don’t need you to free me
I don’t need you to help me
I don’t need you to lead me through the light
I will always fall and rise again
Your venomous heroine
‘Cause I am a survivor
Yeah, I am a fighter
I will fall and rise above
And in your hate I find love
‘Cause I’m a survivor
Yeah, I am a fighter
I will not hide my face
I will not fall from grace
I’ll walk into the fire, baby
All my life
I was afraid to die
And now I come alive inside these flames
You don’t want me to love you
You don’t want me to need you
You don’t want to look at me for you will turn to stone
You don’t want me to hurt you
You don’t want me to bite you
You don’t want me or my aching soul
For I will only fall and rise again
Your venomous heroine
I’m a survivor
Yeah, I am a fighter
I will fall and rise above
And in your hate I find love
‘Cause I’m a survivor
Yeah, I am a fighter
I will not hide my face
I will not fall from grace
I’ll walk into the fire, baby.
All my life
I was afraid to die
But now I come alive inside these flames!
I don’t need you to save me
‘Cause I’m a survivor
Yeah, I am a fighter
I will not hide my face,
I will not fall from grace,
I’ll walk into the fire, baby
All my life
I was afraid to die
But now I come alive inside these
Alive inside these
Alive inside these

“Breathe”

[Intro: Grant Kendrick]
I fade to black as a search for the light
Can you bring me back from this unconcious life?
Can you show me the way?
I’m lost in the dark
I’m falling apart
Can you unbreak my heart?
So I can…

[Chorus: Grant Kendrick]
Breathe
Before I suffocate
Before it’s all too late
Before I die this way
I need to Breathe
Before I slip away
While there’s something left to save
Can you help me?
I need to Breathe

[Verse 1: Grant Kendrick]
I hear the angels calling
Can you send one down?
I see the demons crawling
They’re everywhere around
Can you pull me out
From the mess I’m in
Before my lungs collapse
And there’s no turning back
I need to…

[Chorus: Grant Kendrick]
Breathe
Before I suffocate
Before it’s all too late
Before I die this way
I need to Breathe
Before I slip away
While there’s something left to save
Can you help me?
I need to Breathe

[Bridge: Grant Kendrick]
I need to Breathe
Can you hear me?
I’m screaming
I’m broken down
I’m bleeding
Help me make through
I need you
I fade to black as I search for the light
Can you bring me back from this unconcious life?
Help me

[Chorus: Grant Kendrick]
Breathe
Before I suffocate
Before it’s all too late
Before I die this way
I need to Breathe
Before I slip away
While there’s something left to save
Can you help me?
I need to Breathe

[Outro: Grant Kendrick]
Before I slip away (Can you rescue me?)
I need to Breathe
Before it’s all too late (Can you rescue me?)
I need to Breathe
Before I die this way (Can you rescue me?)
I need to Breathe
I need to
I need to
I need to… (Can you rescue me?)
I need to Breathe

“Yesterday”

[Intro: Toni Braxton & Trey Songz]
Oh, oh
No, no
Ooh, Toni

[Verse 1: Toni Braxton]
I gave you the benefit of the doubt
‘Til you showed me what you were about
Your true colors came out, oh
And your words couldn’t hide the sin
‘Cause the truth about where you been
Is in a fragrance I can’t recognize

[Pre-Chorus: Toni Braxton]
Just standing there, scratching your head
Bloodshot eyes, drunk with regret
Hanging yourself ten feet over the edge
I’m done with this, feeling like an idiot
Loving you, I’m over it
I just don’t love you, don’t love you no more

[Chorus: Toni Braxton]
You, you are so yesterday
Never thought you’d lose my love this way
Now you come begging me to stay
See you, you are so yesterday
I won’t let you rain on my parade
I don’t wanna hear a thing you say
You’re so yesterday

[Verse 2: Trey Songz]
Baby, what you’re saying to me is
There’s no more you and I
I couldn’t get it right on yesterday
So kiss our tomorrows goodbye
Baby, love should brought me home
Should’ve just been a man about it
But now I’m crying like a baby
Girl, your love was like my blanket
Don’t know what to do without it

[Pre-Chorus: Trey Songz & Toni Braxton]
I’m standing here, pleading my case
You don’t care to hear what I say
Hanging yourself ten feet over the edge, oh no, baby
My promises don’t mean nothing
The end is so disgusting
I just don’t love you, don’t love you no more

[Chorus: Toni Braxton & Trey Songz]
You, you are so yesterday
Never thought you’d lose my love this way
Now you come begging me to stay
Honey, you, you are so yesterday
I won’t let you rain on my parade
I don’t wanna hear a thing you say, so yesterday

“Snuff”

Bury all your secrets in my skin
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again

So if you love me, let me go.
And run away before I know.
My heart is just too dark to care.
I can’t destroy what isn’t there.
Deliver me into my fate, if I’m alone I cannot hate
I don’t deserve to have you
My smile was taken long ago, if I can change I hope I never know

I still press your letters to my lips
And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss
I couldn’t face a life without your light
But all of that was ripped apart, when you refused to fight

So save your breath, I will not care.
I think I made it very clear.
You couldn’t hate enough to love.
Is that supposed to be enough?
I only wish you weren’t my friend.
Then I could hurt you in the end.
I never claimed to be a saint
My own was banished long ago, it took the death of hope to let you go

So break yourself against my stones
And spit your pity in my soul
You never needed any help
You sold me out to save yourself
And I won’t listen to your shame
You ran away, you’re all the same

Angels lie to keep control
My love was punished long ago
If you still care, don’t ever let me know
If you still care, don’t ever let me know

At the end of the video she says something I said a few weeks before…
“I want you to promise you will NEVER let go.”

“Where You Lie”

This song is appropriate today:

Tell me again why I should give a damn
Tell me again why I should even care
I gave you everything I had and I swear
There’s nothing left here to, but

All the anger you left behind
All the hatred I feel inside
For in the aftermath of the love that died (love that died)
Keep digging your grave (grave), keep digging your grave

Take your broken promises, and don’t come back again
It’s time to say goodbye, I’m gonna leave you where you lie
Take your broken promises, every one you ever said
It’s time to say goodbye, I gonna leave you where you lie, lie
I’m gonna leave you where you lie

Dead and gone, just a memory
There’s nothing left here for you to see
The ashes fall, burn it all down
Until there’s nothing left around, but

All the anger you left behind
All the hatred I feel inside
For in the aftermath of the love that died (love that died)
Keep digging your grave (grave), keep digging your grave

Take your broken promises, and don’t come back again
It’s time to say goodbye, I gonna leave you where you lie
Take your broken promises, every one you ever said
It’s time to say goodbye, I gonna leave you where you

Lie through my face, you’re nothing but a lie
Lie through my face, you’re nothing but a lie

Keep digging your grave, keep digging your grave

Take your broken promises, and don’t come back again
It’s time to say goodbye, I gonna leave you where you lie
Take your broken promises, every one you ever said
It’s time to say goodbye, I gonna leave you where you lie, lie
I gonna leave you where you lie, lie
I gonna leave you where you lie, lie
I gonna leave you where you lie, lie
I gonna leave you where you lie
