    Heyy! I'm anna(: Here's my entry!!

    This song that I recently wrote is basically about trying to not pay so much attention to the opposition I've been getting , and just take it in with what you feel by yourself without letting the outside influence affect you because after all it is your own life.

    Our Story

    We're laying upstairs in that bed
    just trying to make sense of this mess
    when just yesterday
    we were arguing
    screaming
    and I'd never felt so low
    as you get so frustrated
    that you throw
    your keys right out of that parked car window
    and I just want you to know//

    {Chorus}:
    That I'm not going anywhere
    and I'm this close to doing absolutly anything
    just to get whats fair
    and now all I know is you and me
    and that I'm not gonna give this up
    for anything
    they should just let us be
    cause this is our story
    and we're in this together baby//

    You called me cause you felt so bad
    about the way we left off
    and I love that you thought about me enough
    to come and pick me up
    face to face we talk
    and we're gonna figure this out together
    but right now I'd rather let you know...

    {Chorus}:
    That I'm not going anywhere
    and I'm this close to doing absolutly anything
    just to get whats fair
    and now all I know is you and me
    and that I'm not gonna give this up
    for anything
    they should just let us be
    cause this is our story
    and we're in this together baby//
    {Bridge}:

    We're at the start of our lives
    and one day there won't have to be a fight
    for this love
    cause we'll know what we're made of
    cause baby this our story//

    {Outro}: so tonight I'm just lying here in bed thinking about us together a scene plays out in my head, and its now our story//

    this is my song i wrote while day dreaming about what it would be like to fall in love in a surprising way. So i wrote this a bout a couple who meet at a party. They then cant stop thinking about each other but they never even exchanged names! so its just how their story starts and how love can be spontaneous, fun and crazy.
    Ive never had a boyfriend before so i just day dream about what it would be like and how it would feel to fall so hard for someone that you've never met but have this instant connection! please tell me what you think it would mean the world to me

    To Our Story

    Lights and streamers hung in trees
    You walk to me and I nearly faint
    Never met but want to
    You hold my hand
    And whisper
    “Come with me we’re going to soar tonight”

    We danced danced danced to the best of the drum
    We sang sang sang to the lyrics of the song
    We dreamed dreamed dreamed like we were five
    We were falling falling falling for one another
    It was that birthday that changed our lives

    Three seasons rolled on by and yet
    I still dream of that July night
    I had a blast of a time
    My mama tells me
    “Girl you’re too young
    To know what forever is” but with you I see it

    We danced danced danced to the best of the drum
    We sang sang sang to the lyrics of the song
    We dreamed dreamed dreamed like we were five
    We were falling falling falling for one another
    It was that birthday that changed our lives

    Just as I start losing faith
    There’s a knock on my door
    You’re on my porch and you tell me
    “girl I don’t know your name or who you are
    But I need to know you and I’m still dreamin’ of ya
    Since that late July night
    Will you trust me and take my hand?
    And we can soar like we did that night?”
    And under the starlight on my front lawn

    We danced danced danced to the best of the drum
    We sang sang sang to the lyrics of the song
    We dreamed dreamed dreamed like we were five
    We were falling falling falling for one another
    The birthday was only the first page
    Only the first page
    To our story

    this is my song i wrote while day dreaming about what it would be like to fall in love in a surprising way. So i wrote this a bout a couple who meet at a party. They then cant stop thinking about each other but they never even exchanged names! so its just how their story starts and how love can be spontaneous, fun and crazy.
    Ive never had a boyfriend before so i just day dream about what it would be like and how it would feel to fall so hard for someone that you've never met but have this instant connection! please tell me what you think it would mean the world to me

    To Our Story

    Lights and streamers hung in trees
    You walk to me and I nearly faint
    Never met but want to
    You hold my hand
    And whisper
    “Come with me we’re going to soar tonight”

    We danced danced danced to the best of the drum
    We sang sang sang to the lyrics of the song
    We dreamed dreamed dreamed like we were five
    We were falling falling falling for one another
    It was that birthday that changed our lives

    Three seasons rolled on by and yet
    I still dream of that July night
    I had a blast of a time
    My mama tells me
    “Girl you’re too young
    To know what forever is” but with you I see it

    We danced danced danced to the best of the drum
    We sang sang sang to the lyrics of the song
    We dreamed dreamed dreamed like we were five
    We were falling falling falling for one another
    It was that birthday that changed our lives

    Just as I start losing faith
    There’s a knock on my door
    You’re on my porch and you tell me
    “girl I don’t know your name or who you are
    But I need to know you and I’m still dreamin’ of ya
    Since that late July night
    Will you trust me and take my hand?
    And we can soar like we did that night?”
    And under the starlight on my front lawn

    We danced danced danced to the best of the drum
    We sang sang sang to the lyrics of the song
    We dreamed dreamed dreamed like we were five
    We were falling falling falling for one another
    The birthday was only the first page
    Only the first page
    To our story

    L-U-V by Katie Thing

    blue eyes,
    blond hair

    and I dared
    to try to Love
    for the fIrst time
    but at thirteen,
    i was so blind

    he was enchanting
    and i fell hard
    when i should have Kept up my guard

    and thEy told me
    don't fall for him
    and they told me
    Don't let him in

    You spelled lOve like l-U-v
    which makes me think you never loved me
    it was a red flag
    that it would go Bad
    and unfortunatEly
    you never
    l-o-v-e-d...m-e

    well who knew That i'd get so obsessed
    and fall righT in
    i'd nEver guessed my fiRst kiss
    Would Haunt mE
    five years arouNd the bend

    I diDn't lIsten
    when they tolD me
    don't fall for him
    theN he showed me
    exacTly
    what they meant

    you spelled love liKe l-u-v
    which makes me think you Never lOved me
    it Was a red flag
    that it would go bad
    and unfortunately
    you never
    l-o-v-e-d...m-e

    I wrote this song about a boy who has trouble letting a girl in, because he has real feelings for her but he was once hurt really bad and now he feels all those feelings rushing back when he meets this new girl. The thing is the girl knows what is going on in his head, and this is her feelings about it...



    Tonight

    Verse 1:
    A storm is moving in
    You never let me in
    I can't help but wonder whats on your mind
    I'm searching for a clue
    I'm waiting for the queue
    For you to let me in

    Pre Chorus:
    Everything is wrong
    Nothing is right
    You cannot see the light
    But I know whats on your mind

    Chorus:
    You're out in the dark
    searching for me
    And everything we could be
    Wonder if anyone sees the
    real you besides me
    I can't tell you if they do
    I can't tell you if they will
    Just walk me home tonight

    Verse 2:
    The rain clouds are filling up the sky
    The street lights are our only light
    The stars are hiding behind the black clouds tonight
    Your searching for an answer of whats wrong
    And whats right
    Trying to decide if you should fight
    These feelings that have come over you

    Pre Chorus:
    Everything is wrong
    Nothing is right
    You cannot see the light
    But I know whats on your mind

    Chorus:
    You're out in the dark
    searching for me
    And everything we could be
    Wonder if anyone sees the
    real you besides me
    I can't tell you if they do
    I can't tell you if they will
    Just walk me home tonight

    Bridge:
    You've fought these feelings you've had
    For so long
    It all comes rushing out like a downpour
    From the clouds
    You reach in closer grab my hand
    Run your fingers through my hair
    Everyone around us stops and stares

    End Verse:
    You take my hand and walk me home tonight

    hey! this is a song about when you have a fight with someone and in the heat of the fight you let them go but the regret and know that you'd do anything to get them back:)
    A million miles

    VERSE 1- And I, flashback to the night,
    You and I, all alone at midnight
    Our voices rise, anger in our eyes
    Our very first fight

    Packing of bags, slamming of doors
    Running off into the night
    Tears in my eyes, left all alone
    Under the streetlight

    PRE CHORUS- I'm wasting my days, your slipping away
    I drop everything now
    I need you back somehow

    CHORUS- And I would drive all night
    Just to get you in my sights
    And I would jump on the train
    To stop you getting away
    And every stop sign I would knock down
    Through very city every village every small town
    Cause I'd dri-i-i-i-ive
    A million miles

    VERSE 2- I think back in regret, of all the things I said
    In the heat of the moment
    I stare at the pictures, that cover the walls
    Stare at my phone, your ignoring my calls
    You won't pick up, but I won't give up

    The words I screamed, were not what they seemed
    And in my dreams you come back to me
    The words you said sting my mind, like a swarm of bees
    So I drop my phone and I grab my keys!

    PRE CHORUS- I let you get away, my mistake
    Now it's my chance to take

    CHORUS- And I would drive all night
    Just to get you in my sights
    And I would jump on the train
    To stop you getting away
    And every stop sign I would knock down
    Through very city every village every small town
    Cause I'd dri-i-i-i-ive
    A million miles

    BRIDGE- A million miles, and more
    A million miles, to your door
    But baby will you let me in?
    I'll love you through thick and thin
    Oh baby please let me in once more
    Cause baby to get to your door...

    CHORUS- I had to drive all night
    Just to get you in my sights
    And I came all this way
    To tell you I love you in every way
    And baby all that I know now
    Is that your something I can't live without
    Cause I'd dri-i-i-i-ive
    A million miles

    LAST CHORUS- And I would drive all night
    Just to keep you by my side
    And I walk all the way
    If that's what it would take
    And every stop sign I would knock down
    Through very city every village every small town
    Cause I would driiiiive
    And I would driiiiiive
    A million miles
    A million miles to you
    A million miles
    A million miles for you

    A million miles, that led me to you
    A million miles.
    Thank you Taylor, you made things change for me...
