Stick Around Lyrics

Stick Around - Lindsay May © 2008

 

Chorus

You send me up, then I roll back down, cause I'm still pretending that you'll Stick Around

 

Verse 1

Off in the distance, between hope and despair

there is a finish line, will you wait for me there

 

But not everything is turning out the way I thought it would be

every time I turn around it's like you're walking out on me

I don't think you'll ever give me what I need

 

 

Verse 2

I stay home waiting for days at a time

dreaming up ways, to make you come to me tonight

 

Maybe I should find a lover who will do what he says

so I don't stay home stranded waiting just holdign my breath

i'm living with the feeling i will only ever be your second best

still i stay just taking what I can get

 

Chorus

headed to the basement found the record player thought of the friends that we'd invite later

coffee table dining, appies and red wine, catching up with friend on friday nights

nothing brings us back to life, like when we're

spinning 45's beach boys and patsy cline

i wanna be wherever you will be

Bridge

maybe it's my mission

just to let you

shimmer, shimmer

 

Chorus

Run Away With Me Lyrics

I slide down my window, sink in my seat, if I'm lucky I'll get to speed

pick you up when you're done work, packed your bag, come on let's hurry

 

CHORUS

run away with me,

run away with me,

we'll drive until there's nothing in the rear view but the lights of the city

baby run away with me

 

VERSE 2

only thing i've got on my mind

is you, me and too much wine

sun is setting and it makes my mood,

feel like our honeymoon

 

CHORUS


 

BRIDGE

it's a jungle out there....it's a jungle in here...

and if we slow down    it'll be for souvenirs......

 

CHORUS OUT

so run away with me

we'll drive until there's nothing in the rear view

but a whole new bunch of memories

because i found a really fun place, where we could get crazy

so run away with me

run a-way with me, run away with me

Over and Over lyrics

VERSE

i need a fix, an overhaul

so i don't keep on going back every time he calls

and says i'm a pretty thing        i need what he says

but like that a drug that runs out i get weak and need him again


 

i do this

CHORUS

over and over and over and over again            x2

 

VERSE 2

god help the girl, who lives with him

she must be broken not to know where i fit in

or maybe she does, and follows him out

so she can see with her own two eyes what he lies about

 

she does this

CHORUS


 

BRIDGE

all three of us looking for love, but none of us wants to give up

the corner piece of the puzzle, that will never be enough

Not Gonna Fade Away Lyrics

Too many years of heart ache and bad luck.  

Had me feeling drained, hopeless and so stuck.  

When i finally stepped back, i thought,

i can do better than that.  

 

CHORUS

I'm not gonna fade away, give in easy

strong willed and here to stay

i'm not gonna fade away

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh   not gonna fade away

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh   not gonna fade away

 

i'm getting better with life's ups and life's downs,

otherwise life would be boring and burned out

try to learn from mistakes,     i make,

might get it right one of these days

 

cause i'm ... not gonna fade away

 

BRIDGE   

 

look at all the little things they all add up,    to big things, bad things where  i get hung up

time for new, time for fresh, time to start         again....


CHORUS

Nashville

Verse 1
I’ve got my guitar
I’ve written 20 songs so far and
All I can think about is Nashville

 

I’m selling cars and making friends

spending my nights rhyming things

but all the boys say I'm betting long

 


So I take all my penny jars

and pack the back of this beater car

And drive myself all.. night

I’ve only got the weekend but it’s

Somewhere I must begin

so tonight I drive to Nashville

 

Verse 2

I think of how i got my start

standing up in country bars

to ask the band if I could sing along

they would take one look at me say

honey you're a little green

I'd smile and start to sing a song

 

then the drummer started up

the band would follow just my luck

and at the end they'd ask what else I knew

they said my voice was might strong

and one day it might take me far

maybe all the way to Nashville

 

 

Bridge

so I spend all my nights writing

it's the only time I felt right

 

Verse 3

Stop for a cup of tea as the

sun comes up on Tennessee

lose or win my road is crystal clear

I'm not the type for giving up

hard work and an ounce of luck

to fight the fear brewing up in me

 

take all my penny jars my

Gibson SJ guitar and

Patsy Cline's crazy

the little voice inside my head saying

giving up's no option so

tonight I drive to Nashville

 

tonight I drive to Nashville

It Ain't Easy Being Me

It Ain't Easy Being Me - Lindsay May © 2011

 

Verse 1

Just another day I have to get through

knowing I won't hear from you

I say what I need but you never come through

now it's me who must decide what to do

 

Chorus

It ain't easy being me

It ain't easy being me

it ain't easy being me

cause I still love you

 

Verse 2

Just another bargain I know I'll make

say or do anything so you'll stay

it's probably my fault I can only love you in my way

I guess that's the price every deep roller pays

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

Take out my heart and throw it away

what good has it ever done me anyway

 

Chorus

Hang Around Lyrics

Hang Around - Lindsay May © 2008

 

Verse 1

I'm tired, I'm tired of moving around

I'm like fire, I'll eventually burn out

if you're looking for something fast, I'll have to pass

I don't have energy for that

 

Chorus

I just want to hang around, run my hands through the tall grass

I just want to hang around, sit on the porch out back

 

Verse 2

And lately, lately it's the noise

got me complaining just like a good old boy

all I'm looking for is a little restraint

that's my kind of date

I like folks who behave

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

don't go questioning my right

we'll all want peace of mind

and lots of free time

keys to a better life

 

Verse 3

I'm looking, looking for a place

with lots of books and coffee stains

where I can watch the people move in their

three piece suits, guess who's got tattoo's

 

Chorus

Girl with Grit Lyrics

VERSE 1

i'm wondering if you've seen the grit yet

you treat me mean and think i'll forget)

 

do this, say that, act this way

dark words, agendas, your games

i'm wondering if you've seen my grit yet

 

CHORUS

so you can...

 

say what you want to say       say what you want to

say what you want to say     you'll never get to me that way

 

VERSE 2

i'm not the girl who will just take it

I know your truth now I can't fake it/

 

you want me to explain

but all you do is blame

i'm not the girl who will just take it

 

CHORUS... different

cause i'm a girl with grit


 

BRIDGE

say what you want

(it's a ) shame you speak your thoughts

(there's no) place for us to go from here


 

CHORUS

Ease My Mind Lyrics

VERSE 1

i could use a tonic as    much as a change

cause the kind advice of strangers is starting to give way

now i'm more in favor of letting up than going in

there's nothing like a race that i don't wanna win    

 

and then there you    were

 

CHORUS

 

you look like the excuse something i could use to ease my mind

something like a prayer but the opposite i swear cause you're standing still in time

that's how, you ease my mind

 

VERSE 2

i'm still getting used to letting comfort in

i relied on wine and television but even that wore thin

i ask for your opinions, you say it's not the truth

you try to get me settled down so i'll know just what to do

PRE:

you stay by my side

CHORUS

 

BRIDGE

all the books and magazine with self help gurus selling dreams

so i worry not, when life gets hot because you cool me down

 

CHORUS

Drive Lyrics

Drive - Lindsay May © 2010

 

Verse 1

You hold the map and I'll drive we'll get there by 7, dinnertime

can you just stop the talking, it's showing signs of fight, drive

 

I'm guessing bad directions or missing signs

phone won't work to call for help I'm not sure that I'd try

so find an old motel where we can stay the night, drive

 

Chorus

I guess we'll get there when we get there baby

there's no need to hurry

we've got the mountain and the moon and the stars to drive, drive

 

Verse 2

we'll get up early beat the sunrise

get good directions in daylight

I'll get the coffee and then I'll let you drive, drive

 

Chorus

Lie to You Lyrics

Lie to you © Lindsay May 2010

 

Verse 1:

I don't want to tell anybody anything

They can use against me later

I have a few things to hide

Like a worn out path

I've been walked for miles and miles

I've been the gossip that filled time

 

so I'm gonna

Chorus:

Lie to you for awhile

lie to you for awhile

cause the best kept secrets

have no eyes or ears, so i'm gonna

Lie to you for awhile

 

Verse 2:

I can see you've been drinking

but I think what scares me most

is you don't know how to hold your tongue

You can pour the gin

but you'll only get my body

for my mind that will never be enough

 

so I'm gonna

Chorus:

 

Bridge:

Maybe when I'm sleeping

I'll tell you all the secrets

I'm keeping from you tonight

 

Chorus
