    i wanna enter...


    A year of realization

    i was so shocked
    the day we broke up
    nothin seemed to be right
    that very big fight
    it felt no right
    i cried out the behavior you made
    down the stairs,down my porch
    in the way i have never seen you before
    life turned out to be hell
    i still remember you walk out of my door
    oh...that very big fight and slammin' of the doors
    it took us a year to realize,it took us a year to realize what we did


    a day passed, a month passed
    still lying on the floor
    crying the words you spoke to me
    the eyes felt with tears, slipperin down my cheeks,
    going back to the life we spend together
    the pictures the photos we made
    i cant ever think, they would shatter like this on the floor
    i still remember you walk out my door,
    oh....that very big fight and the slammin' of the doors
    it took us a year to realize, it took us a year to realize what we did....



    oh... now i m here to say,
    its over and it end
    i whipped my eyes and face
    just say myself it ends
    oh...i love you i wanna go back
    but i just cant
    please come back, oh..please come back
    i know its not possible for any power on this earth
    to bring us back together
    oh..i took a year to realize, i took a year to raalize what e did
    now i am lying on the floor with the pictures and photos we made...


    taylor is the best thing that's ever been mine.....

    {THIRD OF MAY}

    I must admit that with you I was reluctant
    To give into your smile and glowing charm.
    All I've had so far are broken relationships
    But you gave me hope and for the first time I loved.

    All I have seen are couples fall out and hurt
    And the ones we'd love the most may just leave.
    But you came in and showed me a new perspective
    I used to be looking back but now I'm looking at you.

    I'll always remember when I saw you that first day.
    The time was quarter to nine and the third of May.
    You looked at me sitting there in the diner booth
    Walked over, fell over and chipped a tooth.
    We both laughed until we cried then said our goodbyes,
    Little did I know I'd be loving you until the end of time.


    The following week you took me to the corner park.
    We sat eating chocolate watching the sun go down.
    It started raining and we hid under the oak tree
    I was taken by surprise when you kissed me.

    You always remembered how I told you my past
    And how I thought that in reality love never lasts.
    But you said that fairy tales can in fact come true
    Your eyes sparkled in the moonlight - of course you knew
    That we would always be laughing, never say goodbye
    And that you'd be loving me until the end of time.


    There was that dark night where it almost ended
    At least that's what I thought - but you had other plans.
    You said you'd never leave me, you couldn't not ever
    Because our love was meant for forever.

    So when we're sitting watching the clouds go by
    83 and dreaming that we could touch the sky
    I'll remember that one day when our feet leave the ground
    And one of us may or may not be around.
    We'll forever be smiling, even after goodbye
    And we'll always be loving until the end of time.



    Stay Fearlessly Beautiful,

    TaylorRose xx

    hey! this is a song called 'It was love'
    It was love

    Chorus:
    Beautiful, dangerous, crazy but real
    Magical, tender, how true love can feel
    It was good darling, oooh and It was love darling.

    Verse 1:
    First day, first glance
    The sparks of new romance
    Slow dances, second chances
    Your eyes on mine.
    Witty banter, your laughter
    Happy ever after
    Doesn’t seem so far away after all.
    Two jigsaw pieces, no place in this world
    Confused and frustrated and lost until…

    Chorus:
    Beautiful, dangerous, crazy but real
    Magical, tender, how true love can feel
    It was good darling, oooh and It was love darling.

    Verse 2:
    Holding hands and wonderlands
    Two stories with an end
    True love and honesty and never pretend
    Expiration date, twist of fate
    Brought us to goodbye
    Two broken hearts and empty arms
    All we’ll ever be
    In long dreams I see you, in a darkened lonely room
    Your green eyes, beacons of light, im running to you
    You’re like smoke in my hand, disappear
    When I get near
    And all you’ll ever be
    Is a bittersweet memory

    Chorus:
    Beautiful, dangerous, crazy but real
    Magical, tender, how true love can feel
    It was good darling, oooh and It was love darling.

    *Instrumental*

    Bridge:
    Faded pictures, old coffee cups
    Memories of givin’ up.
    Head on your chest
    And your old vest
    Still in my draw
    My doubting heart is longing for you
    Begging for more…

    Chorus:
    Beautiful, dangerous, just you and me
    Magical, tender and fragile as could be
    It was good darling, oooh it was good darling!
    Never forget!
    Never regret!
    Beautiful, dangerous, crazy but real
    Magical, tender, how true love can feel
    It was good darling, oooh and It was love darling.
    Oooh, it was love darling.
    Short sweet, precious to me
    Darling…
    It was love.
    Thank you Taylor, you made things change for me...

    Heres my entry :) Hope ya like it :) x

    Matty

    Hey Matty,
    I know you prefer Matthew,
    But I also know you,
    Hear Matty and think of me.

    Hey Matty,
    I wrote this so you’d realise,
    When I see your brown eyes,
    My sight starts to go blurry.

    Chorus
    Because, because, because,
    You’re the only one I can see,
    Because, because, because,
    Falling for you was easy for me,
    Because you play hooky,
    Act like a cutie,
    Make me giggly,
    And just because,
    You’re Matty

    Hey Matty,
    You’re perfect just the way you are,
    But your souls got a scar,
    You let no-one in ‘cept me.

    Repeat Chorus

    Bridge

    Those guy’s at your school,
    They’ve made you hide away,
    Now you never know what to say,
    Even though you’re perfect in every way...

    Repeat Chorus

    Here you go:)this song is called "why me". It's kinda like begin again:). You are so broken and devastated after an ugly breakup, that life seems to lose its shine. But someone....wonderful, beautiful, amazing....comes along, and you realize there are things worth living for. He fixes your broken heart. And through everything, you're wondering, why did he pick you? You, who are so incredibly ordinary you're almost invisible, who is not nearly as pretty as those other girls, who sits alone and doesn't talk, who is mending a broken heart...why did this person choose you? 
    I hope that explained this song well enough:) anyway here it is!:)
    WHY ME

    I was dark
    You were light
    You were calm
    I was fight
    You were the golden boy
    But I was a broken girl
    Until you came into my world

    PRECHORUS
    Oh oh oh
    You came into my world
    A world of a broken girl
    You fixed my heart, which couldn't be fixed
    Oh what did I do to deserve this?
    (so answer me this)
    CHORUS
    Why?
    Have you stayed by my side
    And fallen down
    With me
    Why?
    Have you held me
    And hurt when I was hurting
    Why?
    Was I the one who caught your eye
    When I was the only one who was shy
    Why? 
    Did you hold me together 
    Every time I was breaking?
    Tell me something baby,
    Just tell me honey,
    I've been wondering,
    Forever....why me?

    All those other girls
    Prettier then me
    I'm just ordinary
    Nothing special about me

    But you noticed this lonely heart
    You came over
    And put back the parts
    Even as I was still breaking
    Your touch, your voice,
    It left me shaking

    I was hesitant, scared and kinda nervous
    Frightened and apprehensive
    Thinking this can only lead
    To a repeat of HIM
    ....At first

    But you changed my mind
    You made me shine
    You found my inner light
    Which I'd thought had went out


    PRECHORUS
    Oh oh oh
    You came into my world
    A world of a broken girl
    You fixed my heart, which couldn't be fixed
    Oh what did I do to deserve this?
    (so answer me this)
    CHORUS
    Why?
    Have you stayed by my side
    And fallen down
    With me
    Why?
    Have you held me
    And hurt when I was hurting
    Why?
    Was I the one who caught your eye
    When I was the only one who was shy
    Why? 
    Did you hold me together 
    Every time I was breaking?
    Tell me something baby,
    Just tell me honey,
    I've been wondering,
    Forever....why me?

    Oh I'm just ordinary
    Nothing special about me
    But you saw something different
    You came, you saw, you laughed, you loved
    And you...
    You changed everything.

    Not that great.. But still;)

    Please pm me when results are up!! Thanks!:)

    I Never Thought

    Verse 1: I always thought, I’d find my prince charming
    My knight in shining in armour
    When I met you I thought that all my dreams had come true
    And I would have done anything for you
    I always thought that we were the lucky ones
    Falling in love, was so easy for us
    Or at least for one of us.

    Chorus: I never thought for a second we weren’t forever
    I never thought we would not end up together.
    I never thought for a minute
    You weren’t really in it
    I never thought for a moment, that we weren’t perfect
    That I wasn’t worth it.
    I never thought.

    Verse 2: we were so perfect, for a little while
    Before I saw through you faking a smile
    I never thought it would end, how absurd?
    That you wouldn’t live up to your word
    My friends never liked you, did you know?
    They always thought that you were no good
    But the stars in the night sky, they knew the truth all along
    And now im watching them and crying while writing this song

    Chorus: I never thought for a second we weren’t forever
    I never thought we would not end up together.
    I never thought for a minute
    You weren’t really in it
    I never thought for a moment, that we weren’t perfect
    That I wasn’t worth it.
    I never thought.

    Bridge: I guess the sad thing is I really believed in you.
    And you know what really hurts? I really believed in us
    And all that we could be you and me.
    Maybe I was stupid naïve
    To think that you were right for me
    But now I know I was stupid naïve
    To think that you were good enough for me.
    Cause now I see.

    Chorus: I never thought for a second, that we wouldn’t work
    I never thought that you could be such of a jerk!
    I never thought for a minute
    You weren’t really in it
    I never thought for a moment, that we weren’t perfect
    But I wasn’t worth that.
    Oh I never thought!

    *instrumental*

    Outro: when you left me I never thought that I could find happiness again
    And then I heard a song that proved me wrong cos now I know love will begin again.
    Thank you Taylor, you made things change for me...

    I Should've Known

    Verse1: I've been looking for love onetime
    Thought we both found it at the same time
    Never wanted to see it end
    Now you're even not a friend
    But on you I don't depend
    And I know it was all pretend
    I'm not what you see
    It's just who you think I might be
    This isn't how it works
    You turned out to be such a jerk

    Chorus: This isn't what I wanted
    Now I'm just being haunted
    You were never right for me
    Not even a possibility
    I've never been so upset
    But i can't forgive something that I can't forget
    Cause you didn't even notice when you broke my heart
    I should've know what you were up to from the start

    Verse 2: Your love was what I've known
    Now I'm all alone
    You can't go on this way
    So just walk away
    I'm not what you need
    So now you succeed
    In your little scheme
    You walk out of my dream
    There was never "you and me"
    Took me too long to see

    Chorus: This isn't what I wanted
    Now I'm just being haunted
    You were never right for me
    Not even a possibility
    I've never been so upset
    But I can't forgive something that I can't forget
    Cause you didn't even notice when you broke my heart
    I should've know what you were up yo from the start

    Bridge: This isn't my picture perfect
    This isn't worth it
    It was all about you
    Now there's nothing you can do
    Nothing you can say
    To make me wanna stay
    I know that I couldn't choose
    But you were just too much to lose

    Chorus: This isn't what I wanted
    Now I'm just being haunted
    You were never right for me
    Not even a possibility
    I've never been so upset
    But I can't forgive something that I can't forget
    Cause you didn't even notice when you broke my heart
    I should've know what you were up yo from the start

    *instrumental*

    {BREATHE}
    I can't even explain how I feel that you're gone.
    I thought I couldn't live without you in my arms.
    It was just like that - you left and took my innocent heart with you.
    So now I'm sitting here alone, hoping someday you'll come around.

    But I got to face the truth all though it's killing me to say
    That I can't wait around, praying for our yesterdays.

    So you're gone. Didn't even leave a note to say:
    "By the way - my love is not yours anymore."
    I'll drive all around town, wondering if we'll meet
    And I'll say that without you I can't breathe.
    Without you I can't breathe.


    Should I try spending my nights not thinking about you?
    It's been a few weeks and the pain is still there.
    Breathing is hard, and some days I just break down.
    Right now I'm thinking, that maybe you just don't care.

    But I got to face the truth all though it's killing me to say
    That I can't keep waiting around praying for our yesterdays.

    So you're gone. Didn't even leave a note to say:
    "By the way - my love is not yours anymore."
    I'll drive all around town, wondering if we'll meet
    And I'd tell you that without you I can't breathe.
    Wish I'd known all along not to waste my time
    With you. Could've kept waiting for the right guy.
    You're my biggest regret - but being without you still hurts.
    You should've known that without you I can't breathe.


    I suppose it still gets easier day after day
    While you're out there somewhere hiding away.
    I suppose it still gets easier day after day.
    But I'm not wanting our yesterdays - I'm moving on.

    So when you turn up to my doorstep all alone
    Trying to breathe through those sought after tears
    I will say: "There ain't a place in my heart for you today.
    Oh and by the way I have no care for you anymore.
    If only I had known all along not to waste my time
    With you. Cause you never were the right guy.
    You're my biggest regret - you still left my heart scarred.
    But it's beating and I'm breathing strong without you.
    Without you.
    Without you.



    Stay Fearlessly Beautiful,

    TaylorRose xx

    My entry :D

    I'm going to write it how it's sung... Otherwise you won't get the picture!

    Faded

    Verse 1:
    Faded, like shadows in the da-ark
    Faded, like long ago heal-ed scars
    Oh-oh-oh faded, like the pictures on my wall-all-oh
    Faded, like a memory from before-ore

    Chorus:
    And oh-ohoh-ohoh you've faded like something left in the sun
    Oh-ohoh-ohoh we came unraveled and we came undone
    And I (stop) just wanna say-ay-e-ay-e-ay
    That you (stop) are fading-ing away-e-ay-ey-ay

    Verse 2:
    Faded, like a dusty old book-ook
    Turn the pages, ta-ake a look-ook
    At the faded, story inside, so oh-oh-old
    It was fated, to be un-told

    Chorus

    Faded in time like the faded blurry lines
    Long ago drawn between you and I
    And I'll walk alone on my way home
    Fading like the memories, fading like the pictures, fading like the shadows, fading like a story from long long ah-uh-go

    Chorus:
    And oh-ohoh-ohoh I've faded like something left in the sun
    Oh-ohoh-ohoh I came unraveled and I came undone
    And I (stop) just wanna say-ay-e-ay-e-ay
    That I (stop) am fading-ing away-e-ay-ey-ay


    Ah-way-e-ay-e-ay, Ah-way-e-ay-e-ay

    Round 2 Entry

    Back To Me

    no one told me love was easy
    Don't know why I expected it to be
    so many twists and turns
    so many broken words
    why do i expect not to get hurt

    so I believed your lies
    didn't think about the way you'd try to hide
    so there is a broken heart
    leaving another scar
    on the surface

    PRE-CHORUS
    lost in my own mind
    as if I'm trying to find
    what I did wrong

    CHORUS
    I sit back on my bedroom floor
    wishing we were something more
    I cant breathe
    you said you's never leave
    you're never coming back to me

    so many things I wish I said
    they all prance in my head
    wish you were back at my front door frame
    or throwing rocks at my window pane

    PRECHORUS
    but you stepped away
    after everything
    as if we didn't mean a thing

    CHORUS
    I sit back on my bedroom floor
    wishing we were something more
    I cant breathe
    you said you'd never leave
    you're never coming back to me

    SECOND CHORUS
    you said things you didn't mean
    my hearts broken and beginning to bleed
    seems just yesterday
    you walked away
    you're never coming back to me
    why wont you come back to me?

    This is a new one I only wrote this morning :)

    Time Will Heal

    Cold; rare in this season
    On my last day with you
    Words you never did say
    As I walked out the door
    Confusion crossed my mind
    Disappointed with you
    Cause the days that we spent
    There were sparks everywhere

    I wonder do you think of me?
    This wondrous love that's wasted
    Sinking hearts from your mistake
    You're afraid to admit it was real

    Warm; awake through the night
    I'm tossing and turning
    Days I wait for a call
    But time's slowly ticking
    Were we down the same road?
    Did you not mean to fall?
    But I go to the times
    You held me in your arms

    I wonder do you think of me?
    This wondrous love that's wasted
    Sinking hearts from your mistake
    You're afraid to admit it was real

    This can't be over
    Why did you do this to my heart?
    Maybe we can fix this?
    I'm lifeless without you
    Time will heal me soon

    I wonder do you think of me?
    This wondrous love that's wasted
    Sinking hearts from your mistake
    You're afraid to admit it was real

    If you won't ever come back to me
    Time will heal me soon
    L.O.V.E.

    my songbook! please visit!

    "Don't ever, never, if forever let yourself go. Stay true to who you are.
    Don't ever, never, if forever let those dreams fall. We are in this together."

    Round 3!!!!
    To Me happiness..is FEARLESS!!!!!
    I hope u like it!:
    Inspiration: SO before every song I write I sit down and brainstorm! This time I sat down and wore: "What does Fearless mean to me?" So i thought, and thought, and thought, and this is what I came up with: It is "Fearless" to Speak out or Stand up for yourself! It is "Fearless" to Stay strong through hard times! It is "Fearless" to express your opinion! It is "Fearless" to follow your dreams, not caring what people think! But most important: It is "Fearless" to not let your fears conquer you! So basically this song says all those things, but the main point, is to be FEARLESS!!!!!!! So here is the song:

    Fearless to Me...
    Verse 1: It's been 24 hours since I heard the news
    It's hard losing things that mean the most to you
    cause Hearing that terrible news
    is like having the wind knocked out of you

    You feel small and hopeless inside
    And tears begin to fall on the outside
    Your insecurities
    Try to ruin your life

    Pre-chorus: The question to me is why are we so afraid
    of things that are normal to everyday
    Why are we afraid of things that don't exist
    What if we lived life Fearless

    Chorus: Cause Fearless to me Staying Strong
    Even when everything goes wrong
    Fearless to me is Standing tall
    Fearless is not being afraid to fall
    Fearless to me is daring to be different
    Fearless is admitting your not perfect
    You see
    This is Fearless to Me

    Verse 2: Do you remember whenever you were scared
    Someone who u loved would always be there
    To hold your hand, but now they're not here anymore

    Do you remember the the times in 03
    When you were with all of your family
    Seems like back then life was much more easy

    Pre-chorus: But to be fearless you gotta stand on your own
    You have to let go of people you know
    Cause God will have his way
    And it won't always be this way

    (repeat chorus)

    Bridge: Cause when all your friends abandon you
    You've got a God who's love is so true
    And he says I will never leave you
    And that's Fearless

    (repeat chorus)

    Outro: Cause the special ones
    are the ones who aren't afraid
    And when you love God
    You will always have faith.....
