Album: Take Me or Leave Me

1. Take Me or Leave Me

Take me or leave me cause I’m tired of change

If you go I’ll pay the cost

Take me or leave me cause we’re not the same

If this is a game, I guess I lost

The words you say break my heart in two but when you don’t say anything it’s worse

So, take me or leave me cause this dream I’ve had for far too long is long gone

Don’t tell me where I’m going cause only time will tell

Don’t tell me to stop dreaming

It’s the only thing I know how to do well

Take me or leave me

I’m an independent soul and I won’t do what you want me to

Take me or leave me

I know I don’t fit in here but there are more people than you

My goal in life is to be more than just a queen and I’m so sorry, but I don’t fit into your scene

So, take me or leave me

I’m not going anywhere

You’ve gotta make the choice to move

Don’t tell me where I’m going cause only time will tell

Don’t tell me to stop dreaming

It’s the only thing I know how to do well

Take me or leave me

Take me or go

Stay here or walk away

Take me or go

Take me or leave me cause I’m only here as long as He allows

Take me or leave me

 

2. Frozen

I can’t trust my eyes, they are cracked and I can’t trust my head, it is numb

The spell that kept me here wasn’t magic

Seems I was frozen all along

I can’t move my feet, they won’t awaken from a year-long slumber in the cold

The gleam in your eyes was only there because you were frozen all along

You were, you were frozen all along

I can’t feel you now, you are melting but my heart cannot warm your lies that fast

I see the road you’re taking is icy but I know you have the strength to make it past

Cause you are, you are frozen

And your lies tell everything you wanna be when you say that you didn’t try to kill me

Well, what did you think a frozen lie was gonna do?

I can’t say goodbye, my heart’s too cold now and I should just be happy watching you chill

But all I wanna do is run into your arms

Bu they are frozen still

You are, you are frozen

And your lies tell everything you wanna be when you say that you didn’t try to kill me

Well, what did you think a frozen lie was gonna do?

We are frozen

 

3. Little Words

You say your words so loudly that I cannot find my own

You are affected, your hearts afflicted it knows what you’ve done

And all those girls you say you hate, well have you met yourself?

Oh but I’m just a nobody nothing for you, unless you got no one else

And all the little words you say to me you’re sure to forget by tomorrow

All your swords have left your hands

Well, now they’re mine

Call me a victim

No one likes victims except an audience

Well you may clap your hands now while I take my last bow and exit this business

Oh, you think I’m just a little girl

Could a little girl walk on her own?

Oh and it’s not as easy as it may seem to someone who’s never alone

And all the little words you say to me you’re sure to forget by tomorrow

All your swords have left your hands

Well, now they’re mine

You say your words so loudly so no one can hear their own

You are affected by your heart’s affliction

You know you are wrong

And all the girls you claim to hate are your catalysts

Oh but you’re just a nobody

Nothing for you unless you’ve got someone else

4. Deserve

If I’m a dime, you are a dollar

My little eyes can’t see the other side past what I know

If you’re alive, then I’m a goner

I cannot seem to find another heart that keeps time like mine

Can you be kind without being jaded?

My souls design is not for the taking of people like yourself

You tear me apart, but I still write letters to people outside the realm of your terrors

There is more than this

I’ll never be the kind you serve so I’ll find on my own what I deserve and it’s not the way you treat me

One of these days, you’ll have to join me

Heydays are fun but the needle will only stab you in the heart

You break my heart, but I’ll keep rebuilding until I can see past the lives you are holding

There is more than this

5. Men in the Suits

Invest in much and give a little away

Aint got a gift, but you’ve got something to pay

Well, my grandmother told me to marry one of you but I won’t

What is your problem dear?

You look kind of down

The only face your best friend makes is a frown

Well, I’d do the same if I was stuffed up all day in your pocket

Oh, something’s gotta give

Cause I’ve got something to give

But this world is run by the men in the suits

Wiping us clean of our cents til we have no sense left to listen to

So we take our sides and we shun while you take our money and run

But you gotta know what’s coming back to you

You gotta know what you are

You are a dime a dozen but worth twice as much

Aint got no love, but you’ve got something to touch

Well, the rope’s getting stronger

Resistance is a bond you can’t buy

What’s gonna happen when the water gets too high?

You really think plastic will keep you alive?

I’ll laugh as you build a boat out of paper and pens

Cause I’ve got something to give

Oh, but first something’s gotta give

But this world is run by the men in the suits

Wiping us clean of our cents til we have no sense left to listen to

So we take our sides and we shun while you take our money and run

But you gotta know what’s coming back to you

You gotta know what you are

Your spine is long gone, but you stand tall with the help of your jacket

Near-sighted to the point of blindness, but you see with your expensive glasses

Your shoulders have grown broad carrying around that head of power

But your high stature can’t deceive

It shows you’re a coward

But this world is still run by the cowards in the suits

Wiping us clean of our cents til we have no sense left to listen to

So we take our sides and we shun while you take our money and run

But you gotta know what’s coming back to you

You gotta know what you are

6. Flood

Baby girl, I’m watching over you

And our mother told us what we cannot do

It’s pouring down, it’s taking over you

Thank God our mother told us what we cannot do

You’ve got the lines

You’ve got the makeup to make it out alive

Did you forget what water does to your crooked smile?

Wash it away and you’re left with nothing

Nothing but a face

Thank God our mother taught us what we cannot erase

Climb up the ladder

Don’t drop your eyes until you hit the top

It’s scary up there if you don’t say your prayers before you start to fall

People below you

You’re sure they’ll catch you

But you are wrong

Thank God your mother finally showed you where you belong

You’ve got the sad lies

You’ve got the bad guys on your side

And pretty girls that break my sister

To me she’ll confideit’s getting higher, it’s my last chance now

Don’t say no

Thank God our mother told us where you will go
