Sum 41 - “Pieces”

“I tried to be perfect,
but nothing was worth it
I don’t believe it makes me real.

I thought it’d be easy,
but no one believes me
I meant all the things I said.

If you believe it’s in my soul,
I’d say all the words that I know.
Just to see if it would show
that I’m trying to let you know,
that I’m better off on my own.

This place is so empty,
my thoughts are so tempting
I don’t know how it got so bad.

Sometimes it’s so crazy
that nothing can save me,
but it’s the only thing that I have.

If you believe it’s in my soul,
I’d say all the words that I know.
Just to see if it would show
that I’m trying to let you know,
that I’m better off on my own.

On my own!

I tried to be perfect,
it just wasn’t worth it!
Nothing could ever be so wrong!

It’s hard to believe me,
it never gets easy
I guess I knew that all along!

If you believe it’s in my soul,
I’d say all the words that I know.
Just to see if it would show
that I’m trying to let you know,
that I’m better off on my own.”

Brand New - “Jesus Christ”

“Jesus Christ, that’s a pretty face
the kind you’d find on someone that could save
If they don’t put me away,
well, it’ll be miracle 

Do you believe you’re missing out?
That everything good is happening somewhere else?
But with nobody in your bed,
the night’s hard to get through

And I will die all alone
And when I arrive, I won’t know anyone

Well, Jesus Christ, I’m alone again,
so what did you do those three days you were dead?
Cause this problem’s gonna last
more than the weekend 

Well, Jesus Christ, I’m not scared to die
I’m a little bit scared of what comes after.
Do I get the gold chariot?
Do I float through the ceiling? 

Do I divide and pull apart?
Cause my bright is too sly to hold back all my dark.
And the ship went down in sight of land,
and at the gates does Thomas ask to see my hands?

I know you’ll come in the night like a thief, 
but I’ve had some time alone to hold my lies.
I know you think that I’m someone you can trust,
but I’m scared I’ll get scared and I swear I’ll try nail you up

So do you think that we could work out a song?
Some know that it’s you and that it’s over so I won’t even try.
I know you’ll come for the people like me,
but we all got wood and nails, we’re tongue tied to a hating factory.

Yeah, we all got wood and nails, we’re tongue tied to a hating factory.
Yeah, we all got wood and nails, and we sleep inside of this machine.”

Haley Reinhart - “Undone”

“I’m sorry, I’m really a mess right now.
I’m trying my best to get it together somehow.
I can’t see this way, locked up in this pain that you left me.
I’m unraveling; looking for things that’ll never be.

Stars fade away, they just crash into space;
disappear from the light like you and I

Tell me where love goes when it’s gone.
Tell me where hearts go when they go wrong.
Suddenly someone is no one, I’ve come
Undone, undone, undone
Undone, undone, undone

I’m sorry, I let me fall for you.
I can erase you and forget you, but I can’t undo you.
You’re the hand I can’t hold, the words I’m not told when I’m lonely.
And I don’t want you back, I just want to have what you took from me…”
