Track Name: Superstar
I don’t know what
You want from me
I don’t know at all
Sometimes you can
Just make me feel
Like I’m so small
But I fell in love with you
I just fell too hard
Cause I got up
Bruised and beaten
With my heart badly scarred
Everything about you
Makes me weak
And I hate how
You have that kind of
Control over me

(Chorus)
So I’m taking this step back
To see how it looks from afar
I realize that
You’re no superstar
I’m letting you go now
Even though it may be hard
It’s clear to me that
You’re no superstar

I need you out of my life now
So stop trying to come back in
You’re just a constant reminder
Of what could’ve been
And I hate that you’re with her
But you say you still love me
Stop playing these games
When you know we cannot be
And it may take a while
For my wounds to mend
But they sure will
If this whole thing just ends

(Chorus)
So I’m taking this step back
To see how it looks from afar
I realize that
You’re no superstar
I’m letting you go now
Even though it may be hard
It’s clear to me that
You’re no superstar

And I thought you were perfect
But you’re not worth
The pain you brought to me
And I gotta know was she worth it?
You know I don’t deserve this
It took a while to finally see

(Chorus)
So I’m taking this step back
To see how it looks from afar
I realize that
You’re no superstar
I’m letting you go now
Even though it may be hard
It’s clear to me that
You’re no superstar

I finally see that
It’s clear to me that
You’re no superstar
Track Name: I Don't
He’s off at college
While I’m on my way
To Tennessee
I never could imagine
The day I’d just let him leave
But sometimes
It’s easier to say goodbye
Well I’ve got his words on repeat
In the back of my head
A broken record of all
The meaningless things he’s said
Turns out “I love you”
Is the simplest lie
And I turn around and he ain’t there
Sometimes it just don’t seem fair
Why’d it have to be this way?
And all I can say is...

(Chorus)
I don’t wanna fight this anymore
I don’t wanna feel the way I felt before
Cause I don’t wanna love you anymore


Well there are no memories worth saving
Of our carefree days
And there are no memories that I can erase
Cause there are nights
I’ll always remember
Your smile was my saving grace
And as fearlessly as I fell,
I’m just as fearful to fall
Knowing you weren’t there through it all

(Chorus)
I don’t wanna fight this anymore
I don’t wanna feel the way I felt before
Cause I don’t wanna love you anymore

Now I’m back to where
We were on our last night
It’s just that this time
You are nowhere in sight
And for the first time it feels
Like I’ve made you up in my mind
And as fearlessly as I fell,
I’m just as fearful to fall
Knowing you weren’t there through it all

(Chorus)
I don’t wanna fight this anymore
I don’t wanna feel the way I felt before
Cause I don’t wanna love you anymore
And I don’t wanna hurt anymore
I don’t, I don’t, I don’t
I don’t wanna love you anymore
Track Name: Original
He’s always wearing a soccer jersey
Barcelona is his favorite team
He’s kinda shy when people are around
But he’s loud and crazy when he’s with me

Well he can cook better than I ever will
I always thought that was so unique
He can hold a grudge when he’s mad
But it won’t last longer than a week

(Chorus)
And when he smiles
Everything seems clearer
You can see every emotion in his eyes
Well he’s naturally smart
And it always frustrates me
But he makes me laugh
All the time
He’s just so-oh-oh
Original

I love to watch him play hockey
It’s just another thing he does
Better than me
On ice skates I can barely stand
But he guided me with his hands

(Chorus)
And when he smiles
Everything seems clearer
You can see every emotion in his eyes
Well he’s naturally smart
And it always frustrates me
But he makes me laugh
All the time
And he’s the kind of person I wish I could be
Cause he was nothing but perfect to me
And I don’t know why I let him go
Cause he’s just so-oh-oh
Original
Track Name: Best Of Me
I know
I’m no princess
But I deserve
So much better than this
And I’ve made mistakes too
But never have I done
Something like this to you
Been tricked
Convinced
Thought you actually cared about this

(Chorus)
All along I thought you were my prince
When really
You were just a monster
In disguise
And I fell for every one of your tricks
Got lost in your eyes
It didn’t work out
In case you couldn’t see
That you got the best of me

I wanna get out of this town
Start over
Where no one knows
Who I am
Ever since you humiliated me
I’m not even sure if I like
Who I am
I’ve been mistaken
Lied to
I would’ve died for you

(Chorus)
All along I thought you were my prince
When really
You were just a monster
In disguise
And I fell for every one of your tricks
Got lost in your eyes
It didn’t work out
In case you couldn’t see
That you got the best of me

And I’ve felt low
But not as low as you made
Me feel
And I thought I had a shot
I must’ve forgot that
I had no chance

And I had no knight in shining armor
There to save me
Had to try and slay you
On my own

(Chorus)
All along I thought you were my prince
When really
You were just a monster
In disguise
And I fell for every one of your tricks
Got lost in your eyes
It didn’t work out
In case you couldn’t see
That you got the best of me

It didn’t work out
In case you couldn’t see
That you got the best of me
Track Name: Simply
He’s got a smile
That can light up a room
But he doesn’t let it shine
While I’m tossing and turning
Late at night
Trying to figure out
How to make him mine

Hey, oh oh, hey

Cause every time I see him
I swear that I don’t need him
Till his eyes meet mine
Then it’s my heart beating
And me not trying to seem like
I’m even trying

(Chorus)
Cause he’s simply beautiful
But simply out of touch
And I’ll simply just never be enough
To be the girl he loves so simply
And I’m simply stumbling
Looking for words to say
While he’s simply
Taking my breath away
And I’m lying here
Asking God why it’s always me
To fall in love so simply

Hey, oh oh, hey


Well he can hold me tight
Play games with my mind
Then just walk away
Every time he gets up to leave
My heart it begs him to stay
He flirts, but then it’s like
I’m not worth his time
So I tell myself to just let him go
But then he’s back on my mind

(Chorus)
Cause he’s simply beautiful
But simply out of touch
And I’ll simply just never be enough
To be the girl he loves so simply
And I’m simply stumbling
Looking for words to say
While he’s simply
Taking my breath away
And I’m lying here
Asking God why it’s always me
To fall in love so simply

Every time he looks at me
I can’t help but wonder what he sees
And if he ever thinks about me

(Chorus)
Cause he’s simply beautiful
But simply out of touch
And I’ll simply just never be enough
To be the girl he loves so simply
And I’m simply stumbling
Looking for words to say
While he’s simply
Taking my breath away
And I’m lying here
Asking God why it’s always me
To fall in love so simply

Hey, oh oh, hey
Track Name: 2:08 am
2:08 am
You’re still in my head
I’d give anything
To just forget
Laying on my bed, I can’t get any sleep
Look at what you’ve done to me
You won’t leave my mind
Thinking of all the lost time
Hours spent on you
What am I supposed to do

2:08 am
I can hear your voice
And right now
Listening to your words
Is my only choice

I’ll be fine
With this broken heart of mine
And believe me while I’m lying
it feels just like I’m dying

2:08 am
Staring at my door
For a moment more
Thinking of what you said
It’s echoing in my head
And when you’re alone like me
Your head’s a scary place to be

I’ll be ok
I just wish you were here with me

2:08 am
You’re still in my head
I’d give anything to just forget
laying on my bed, I can’t get any sleep
look what you’ve done to me

I’ll be ok, I’ll be ok, I’ll be ok, I’ll be ok
Track Name: Every Song That I Write
She’s beautiful
That’s what he says
And I can feel my heart breaking
In my chest
While he’s going on
All the words pass through my head
But there’s not one thing
That I remember he said
Cause I’m mesmerized
Lost inside a sea of his blue eyes
And he’s too clueless to even realize
That he’s always on my mind

(Chorus)
And he’s my lack of sleep
And he’s in every dream
When I finally get to close my eyes
But she’s his beauty queen
To him she’s better than me
And I don’t even know why
He’s the reason my guitar
Doesn’t ever leave my side
Well, he’s every song that I write

Lost all concentration
During our conversation
I barely know where to begin
Can’t think of any right words to say
Cause I know how he sees me
Different than how I see him
But he can’t get his mind off that girl
It’s too bad she’s his everything
Cause he’s everything in my world

(Chorus)
And he’s my lack of sleep
And he’s in every dream
When I finally get to close my eyes
Could I be his beauty queen
To him she’s better than me
And I don’t even know why
He’s the reason my guitar
Doesn’t ever leave my side
Well, he’s every song that I write

He says music should always be fun
He puts his family at number one
On his priority list
Well he’s someone I miss

(Chorus)
And he’s my lack of sleep
And he’s in every dream
When I finally get to close my eyes
Now I’m his beauty queen
There’s no one else but me
And now I finally know why
He’s the reason my guitar
Doesn’t ever leave my side
Well, he’s every song that I write

She’s beautiful
That’s what he says
And I can feel my heart beating
In my chest
Track Name: What Will Be
I don’t think that there will ever come a day
When I’ll say your name and it won’t mean a thing
I love everything that you do
When it’s just me and you but now I’m crying

I didn’t think that I would ever hear you lie
But you did it just so I could stay all right
Your voice sounds so sincere
As you whisper in my ear that you’re sorry for lying
Well, I don’t think my heart can keep on trying

(Chorus)
But all you gotta do is speak
Suddenly the whole world’s drifting
Making a strong girl weak
How do you get me like that?
Cause all you gotta do is say
That I’m the only girl you’re missing
While you’re away I hope you’ll think of me

I haven’t been able to get you off my mind
Remembering your voice on the other line
And all the cute things that you’d say
About waiting for me
But why would that be true?
Tell me what I’ve gotta do

(Chorus)
But all you gotta do is speak
Suddenly the whole world’s drifting
Making a strong girl weak
How do you get me like that?
Cause all you gotta do is say
That I’m the only girl you’re missing
While you’re away I hope you’ll think of me
And what could be

In years to come, we’ll be together
Convince everyone it’ll last forever
But I don’t wanna wait so long
For your flawless kiss to finally be
You’re everything and more that’s right for me
Promise you won’t forget me when you’re gone

(Chorus)
But all you gotta do is speak
Suddenly the whole world’s drifting
Making a strong girl weak
How do you get me like that?
Cause all you gotta do is say
That I’m the only girl you’re missing
While you’re away I hope you’ll think of me
And what will be
Oh what will be
Track Name: Tell Me
He don’t know
How easily
He can make my day
And he don’t see
What he does to me
Every time he walks away
Now giving up
Isn’t something I usually do
But it’s what they say
Every time I mention you

(Chorus)
And I don’t even know
How to let him go
Or how to make me see
He’s something I don’t need
I wish I could understand
How to make him the man
I know that he can be
Could someone tell me?

The way he sings
Brings a smile to my face
Now every night
I wipe the tears away
Some old blue jeans
And a grey t-shirt
He looked so good that it hurt
To see him go
This heartbreak heals
Too damn slow


(Chorus)
And I don’t even know
How to let him go
Or how to make me see
He’s something I don’t need
I wish I could understand
How to make him the man
I know that he can be
Could someone tell me?

Wish I could take back
Every word I said to you
Do you realize all the pain
You put me through?
Then you move on
Like I mean nothing to you
But I do

(Chorus)
And I don’t even know
How to let him go
Or how to make me see
He’s something I don’t need
I wish I could understand
How to make him the man
I know that he can be
Could someone tell me?

Tell me
Tell me
Could someone tell me?
Tell me
Could someone please tell me?
Track Name: What I Believe
I ain’t born and raised in the south
But country is my heart
Grew up in a small town
Where everybody wants to tear you apart
Went to a Christian school, yeah
That’s where I spent my life
All girls, I don’t know how I ever survived

Picked up guitar when I was 12 and I learned real fast
I’d spend hours playing the same song
And I would have a blast
I never would imagine I’d be where I am today
But I’ll just keep on singing that I’m on my way

(Chorus)
I admit I can get a bit loud
Sometimes I’m hard to handle
I dream bigger than life
And it burns brighter than the light on any candle
And I’m weird and crazy but I’m always me
And I stand for what I believe

I could spend an entire day just listening to a song
I’m the youngest of four kids and we all get along
I’d rather hear a live band play
Then be at some teenage party
Why pretend to be something that I’m not?
Seems like “cool” has got everybody brainwashed

(Chorus)
I admit I can get a bit loud
Sometimes I’m hard to handle
I dream bigger than life
And it burns brighter than the light on any candle
And I’m weird and crazy but I’m always me
And I stand for what I believe

It’s not always easy for me to say things clear
So I put ‘em in a song for everyone to hear
People can judge me for what I have to say
But nothing’s gonna make me put my music away
Track Name: Just Leavin'
Want to run right into your arms
I want to feel the touch of your skin
Promise me that you can do no harm
And I’ll so easily let you in
Cause I’ve been broken for the longest time
Looking for someone who might change my mind on believing
That everyone’s just leavin’

I can never speak the words I wanna say
When I get too close I just push away
When all I need is for you to stay

But I found some comfort in your pale blue eyes
And I’m so scared that you’ll realize and leave
Cause why would you stay for me?

(Chorus)
Cause I’ve been broken for the longest time
Looking for someone who might change my mind on believing
That everyone’s just leavin’
I’m falling for ya, you can’t change my mind
Maybe then you’ll let my guard down this time
Cause I don’t wanna keep believing
That everyone’s just leavin’

Well, maybe I’m crazy and I’ve lost my mind
Oh I’m crazy to believe that you’ll love me

(Chorus)
Cause I’ve been broken for the longest time
Looking for someone who might change my mind on believing
That everyone’s just leavin’
I’m falling for ya, you can’t change my mind
Maybe then you’ll let my guard down this time
Cause I don’t wanna keep believing,
I don’t wanna keep believing
I don’t wanna keep believing
That everyone’s just leavin’
