    2010 by Annie
    Written on 30/12/12
    This song is about Christmas 2010. Christmas 2011 was the most complicated Christmas of my life, but life slowed down Christmas 2012 and it wasn't enjoyable. This song means something totally different from what it seems, but it means almost the same thing as what it seems. It's complicated, sorry.

    2010

    Verse 1
    When everybody's lovin' and inviting me in
    I'm saying "Remember, winter twenty-ten?"
    Then they all turn away and try to unsay
    The words that make me close my eyes and cry
    I say, it's okay, you've got a clean slate
    I'll forget about you by two thousand twenty-eight
    And that's when the flashbacks start
    All over again, they break my heart

    Chorus
    It's winter two thousand ten
    We're dancing round the Christmas lights
    You're there every second
    To keep me warm on cold, dark nights
    And I never imagined a Christmas without you
    But that's what I had in two zero one two

    Verse 2
    I've never fallen in love since
    But he comes over and asks me to dance
    I watch him remember that December
    He watches me close my eyes and cry
    I say, it's okay, you didn't know
    That was the best Christmas ever, I loved it so
    And that's when the flashbacks start
    Of winter twenty-eleven when you broke my heart

    Repeat Chorus

    Bridge 1
    I remember the silver necklace hiding, wrapped, under the tree
    I remember screaming and then you leaning over to kiss me
    I never want to lose those memories

    Part of Chorus
    It's winter two thousand ten
    We're dancing round the Christmas lights
    You're there every second
    To keep me warm on cold, dark nights

    Bridge 2
    I remember a week later, you kissed me at midnight
    I remember us at Times Square, freezing, but butterflies taking flight
    I never want to lose sight
    Baby, of you
    Baby, of you, yeah

    Repeat Chorus

    Outro
    Don't let me lose those memories of you
    Not after this lonely twenty one two

    High Tide by Annie
    written on 5/12/12
    "Summer, all the beautiful times..." "Realized I loved you in the fallllllllllll..." Yeah. But in winter, it wasn't my fault, it was this stupid new girl's fault, and everything crashed and UGH. This isn't about me. It's about a friend. She told me after it was over "Sheesh, it was like surfing for goodness sake!" And then there came a song. ;)

    High Tide

    There's not a day I don't miss you
    Cause baby, I wasn't expecting you to come along
    And my friends are worrying and telling me to quit
    But I can't, cause baby it feels too wrong...
    I don't care if she's a cheerleader
    Or if she flips her long hair around
    Baby, you were s'posed to be mine right now
    I don't know how it all went down

    Chorus
    We were high tide riding the waves
    Till the surf crashed on the sand
    It was beautiful, it was magical
    But scribbled over in red crayon
    And now it's too late to go back to those days
    I miss the tumble, the fear, the high tide riding the waves

    It's like I was waiting that day for something
    Though I couldn't place the fear
    And I couldn't tell what was real or wrong
    But baby, that doesn't mean I don't wish you were here...
    I don't care if she's got a short skirt
    Or if her make-up looks the best
    Baby, you were s'posed to be mine right now
    I'm more than a floral sundress

    Repeat Chorus

    A terrible storm comes over the sea
    What's come over you has come over me
    I don't know what to do when the tide goes in
    I lost everything I ever wanted

    Repeat Chorus x2

    Low tide, no waves to be found
    You were s'posed to be mine right now

    Hello by Topaz
    written on 1/4/13
    I wrote this song for my parents - for their anniversary. It's the story of how they met. Apparently, what happened is my mom was rushing, late for a meeting. My dad - a friend of a friend of a bussiness colleague - called her. And after that... it was love at first "Hello." :)

    Hello

    Verse 1

    You slept in,
    Rushing out the door,
    Gulp down your coffee,
    Just need a little more time,
    Where are those keys?
    You’re searching through your pockets –
    And then the phone rings

    Pre-Chorus

    Irritated, simply stated, he’s going to make you late,
    Just another phone call from a random guy

    Chorus

    And he says “hello,”
    And suddenly the world stops turning
    “Hello,”
    And suddenly your breath is short
    “Hello,”
    And suddenly
    All that matters is this single voice:
    “Hello.”

    Verse 2

    Phone number scribbled
    On a crumpled piece of paper,
    Hands shaking, hoping you
    Didn’t get it wrong
    Ring, ring, hurry up,
    Why won’t she answer?
    What’s taking her so long?

    Pre-Chorus

    Irritated, simply stated, she’s going to make you late,
    And then she finally picks up that phone

    Chorus

    And she says “hello,”
    And suddenly the world stops turning
    “Hello,”
    And suddenly your breath is short
    “Hello,”
    And suddenly
    All that matters is this single voice:
    “Hello.”

    Bridge


    And they say there’s no such thing
    As love at first sight,
    But I just have to wonder
    If true love can span the distance of
    “Hello…”

    Chorus, Version 2

    “Hello,”
    And suddenly the world stops turning
    “Hello,”
    And suddenly your breath is short,
    “Hello,”
    Your priorities are one notch down
    And suddenly there’s room at the top for this single voice:
    “Hello.”
