    Thanks a lot for the wonderful award. :)

    I know the theme is Summertime, but this song sort of blends into the theme. I wrote it about my last Summer, how I had this insane crush on a guy.

    And hopefully, the one line in the bridge doesn't count as rude language.


    Heartsick

    Verse 1

    Let the sun shine,
    God forbid it won't make you mine.
    Don't say goodbye, cause we just said hello.
    And you surely know how to make me feel friend-zoned.

    Chorus

    I've been trying to make it work out,
    so don't blame me.
    I've tried to get closer,
    so why cant you see?
    I'm heartsick, in the process of my heart dying.

    Verse 2

    No matter how many songs I write,
    No matter how many sleepless nights I have,
    remember I'm still on your side.
    You changed my life forever, and opened doors I could never
    Open alone..
    And I want you to know..

    Chorus

    I've tried to make it work out, so don't blame me.
    I've tried to get closer, so why can't you see?
    I'm heart sick in the process of my heart dying, oh oh!

    Bridge

    You gave me a note,
    And said you were mine,
    but you left me hanging, confused, frustrated.
    I lost my discretion, oh oh oh.
    I try so damn hard, but I still end up,
    Giving up, every time,
    The endless cycle of love and life.

    -repeat chorus twice-

    Heartsick in the process of trying to tell you,
    "I love you".

    round 3!!!!

    SECONDS WITH YOU
    Written by: staybeautiful137, 2/14/13

    My world began burning that Valentine's Day
    Remember how you said it would be okay?
    As those empty promises went up in flames
    I realized you were cheating in all of games

    "I'll text you after the movie": the last words you said to me
    Don't you see how they have left me chained instead of free?
    There was no tearful goodbye of final love letter
    Wondering what could have been made it worse, not better.

    CHORUS:
    So tell me this isn't true
    Say I'm not really losing you
    Slowly the pieces begin to fall into place
    How much more pain will I be forced to face?
    We used to be a happily ever after
    Filled with innocent love and carefree laughter
    We had the world's best secrets and a shared smile
    Those seconds with you made every minute worthwhile

    There was no warning or sign of the end
    And I try to be just fine, but its getting harder to pretend
    I cried for you yesterday, though I hate to admit it
    As the embers of that Valentine's Day come to be relit

    CHORUS:
    So tell me this isn't true
    Say I'm not really losing you
    Slowly the pieces begin to fall into place
    How much more pain will I be forced to face?
    We used to be a happily ever after
    Filled with innocent love and carefree laughter
    We had the world's best secrets and a shared smile
    Those seconds with you made every minute worthwhile

    Repeat CHORUS:
    So tell me this isn't true
    Say I'm not really losing you
    Slowly the pieces begin to fall into place
    How much more pain will I be forced to face?
    We used to be a happily ever after
    Filled with innocent love and carefree laughter
    We had the world's best secrets and a shared smile
    Those seconds with you made every minute worthwhile

    So before I continue to go through this ordeal
    I want to let you know how I truly feel:
    Me loving you? It was real.

    Round 4


    Summer Day

    Verse 1:
    As I walked through the door
    I felt the gentle, autumn breeze
    And I couldn't help but wish that
    You were there with me and
    I walk down my driveway
    Watching the leaves fall from their trees
    While you're miles and miles away
    Too far to save me

    This crisp, autumn air feels so different
    From the last days of summer that we shared
    Do you remember how it felt when we were together?
    'Cause I do

    Pre-Chorus:
    Thinking of what it would really feel like
    If you were really here to hold me

    Chorus 1:
    On the first day
    You turned around and said, "Hey"
    And I forgot your name
    And you won't let that go
    It's just my mind went blank
    Everything melted away
    I couldn't find the right words to say
    On that summer day

    Verse 2:
    You not next to me feels like
    A ring that's missing on your finger
    After you're so use to it being there
    And I'm getting so frustrated because
    Life is making things so complicated
    We get so close and before you know it
    There it go-o-o-oes

    Pre-Chorus:
    Thinking it hurts you and me more than it did
    The moment when I had to leave and

    Chorus 2:
    On the second day
    You came up to me
    And finally asked
    And I'll never let that go
    My mind went blank
    Everything had melted away
    I didn't know what to say
    On that summer day

    Bridge:
    And you're still everything I wanted
    And I still need you like I did then and

    Chorus 3:
    On the last day
    You looked at me and
    I said, "Don't forget about me"
    I didn't want to let you go
    My mind was blank
    There was nothing I could say
    As I was walking away
    On that summer day

    It will always be her

    Verse 1: I can’t believe it
    I have the worst luck
    I hope she sees just how much you suck.
    You never cared about me at all.
    I thought we would have a happy ending.
    Turns out you were only pretending.
    I wish I had not fallen…
    Chorus: I guess I should have known better.
    You would talk about her forever.
    But you swore to me it was over with her.
    I should have seen right through those lies.
    Instead falling for those big brown eyes,
    Cause in the end it would always be her.
    Verse 2: No, don’t try to deny
    The heartache
    There’s only so much I can take.
    And I gave you chance after chance.
    But now I see the real you
    And that your love was not true.
    It’s only fitting that she got the last dance.
    Chorus: I guess I should have known better.
    You would talk about her forever.
    But you swore to me it was over with her.
    I should have seen right through those lies,
    Instead of falling for your big brown eyes.
    Cause in the end it would always be her.
    Verse 3: And you walked up to me that very next day,
    With a sad sad look up on your face.
    I knew just you wanted to say.
    But I didn’t let you talk.
    I said…
    Chorus: You know I should have known better.
    You would talk about her forever.
    But you swore to me it was over with her.
    But now I see right through your lies.
    And I’m not falling for those big brown eyes.
    Cause I know it will always be her.
    Yeah, you got caught in your game
    Only got yourself to blame.
    And in the end it will always be her.

    for anger:

    {FOOTSTEPS}
    Each time I look into your eyes
    I see a darkness lurking beneath.
    You've placed a shadow over your heart
    Hiding it away each time that we meet.

    Our love was too destructive
    For both of us to carry it on.
    I knew that it was hopeless from the start
    Our happy times are long gone.

    I never asked you to haunt me
    And every time we pass I feel that cold wind blowing.
    I never wanted your ghost to follow me 'round
    Our past left footsteps forever in the ground.


    Will you continue to walk this earth
    Searching for something to fill the hole I left?
    You look empty, dark and alone
    Well did you know that it's my heart you wrecked?

    I never asked you to haunt me
    And every time we pass I feel that cold wind blowing.
    I never wanted your ghost to follow me 'round
    Our past left footsteps forever in the ground.


    Just accept that I'm gone
    Long gone, long gone
    You've broken my heart too many times
    Before
    I need your heaviness to leave me
    Because it's weighing me down
    After all this time I deserve to be happy
    So get out, go home!

    Haunting me, you'll never find what you need
    So please - I'm begging you to leave
    Me alone so I can move on and don't have to see
    Our past leaving footsteps forever in the ground.

    No longer will I be reminded
    Of our dreaded, devastating past.
    I'll never have your ghost follow me 'round.
    Cause I erased those footsteps that were in the ground.


    Stay Fearlessly Beautiful,

    TaylorRose xx

    So here goes nothing

    {This is a break up song. It’s tragic and describes a story and a lover’s sadness…….I know its long but I had to let it all out.}

    Why?

    The moon, the stars
    The sky are crying here on my behalf
    The trees and butterflies
    And all the sparrows sing to cover them up

    I stay awake till the sun wakes up
    I feel no pain, no fear
    I watch those scary haunted movies
    You always watched on Halloween eves
    But somewhere in my mind
    I keep asking the question
    You never answered through any signs
    So now I’m asking…….

    Why did you let me go?
    Why did you cover the truth?
    Why did you leave me crying there
    On that Cars-2, 66 root?

    Why did you break my heart?
    Why did you leave me undone?
    Why did you leave so many scars
    To make me scream why??.....


    So now and then I read through the albums
    I sweep my eyes through all the pictures
    I hold your old blue jacket
    So that I can smell you again

    I read through all the letters
    You wrote to me on those days
    You wrote that, “without me
    Every moment of your life is lame.”
    But now I’m invisible and your miles away
    We’re living in the same world but
    I feel like you’re an alien from mars
    You broke my heart like a piece of glass

    Why did you play this game?
    Why did you cause such shame?
    Why did you suck my life
    Out like a deadly vampire?

    Why did you shatter me down?
    Why did you reap me off?
    Why did you hurt so much
    To make me scream why??....


    So tell me, baby, was it just me?
    My blind trust or my obsession about you
    So speak up and tell me what went wrong
    Why did you pack your bags and
    Caught the first flight to the no returning zone?
    Or was it you and your thornful mind?
    Was it all you wanted from the start?
    Did you plan to break up when the going gets tough?
    What pleasure do you find to
    Drain all the love and leave me helpless?

    Why are you coming back
    In memories and flashbacks?
    Why is it so impossible to
    Erase you and forget?

    Why does your name echo in my mind?
    After all the scars I ask myself again
    Do I really still love you???
    Why do I see you when I close my eyes?


    Don’t you know when you break a heart
    It’s impossible to mend it back
    So now speak up and tell me
    Why you want me dead?

    round 3!!!!

    SECONDS WITH YOU
    Written by: staybeautiful137, 2/14/13

    My world began burning that Valentine's Day
    Remember how you said it would be okay?
    As those empty promises went up in flames
    I realized you were cheating in all of games

    "I'll text you after the movie": the last words you said to me
    Don't you see how they have left me chained instead of free?
    There was no tearful goodbye of final love letter
    Wondering what could have been made it worse, not better.

    CHORUS:
    So tell me this isn't true
    Say I'm not really losing you
    Slowly the pieces begin to fall into place
    How much more pain will I be forced to face?
    We used to be a happily ever after
    Filled with innocent love and carefree laughter
    We had the world's best secrets and a shared smile
    Those seconds with you made every minute worthwhile

    There was no warning or sign of the end
    And I try to be just fine, but its getting harder to pretend
    I cried for you yesterday, though I hate to admit it
    As the embers of that Valentine's Day come to be relit

    CHORUS:
    So tell me this isn't true
    Say I'm not really losing you
    Slowly the pieces begin to fall into place
    How much more pain will I be forced to face?
    We used to be a happily ever after
    Filled with innocent love and carefree laughter
    We had the world's best secrets and a shared smile
    Those seconds with you made every minute worthwhile

    Repeat CHORUS:
    So tell me this isn't true
    Say I'm not really losing you
    Slowly the pieces begin to fall into place
    How much more pain will I be forced to face?
    We used to be a happily ever after
    Filled with innocent love and carefree laughter
    We had the world's best secrets and a shared smile
    Those seconds with you made every minute worthwhile

    So before I continue to go through this ordeal
    I want to let you know how I truly feel:
    Me loving you? It was real.



    Hey, that's a beautiful song! But actually, we are on round 4!

    I have the worst luck
    I hope she sees just how much you suck.
    You never cared about me at all.
    I thought we would have a happy ending.
    Turns out you were only pretending.
    I wish I had not fallen…
    Chorus: I guess I should have known better.
    You would talk about her forever.
    But you swore to me it was over with her.
    I should have seen right through those lies.
    Instead falling for those big brown eyes,
    Cause in the end it would always be her.
    Verse 2: No, don’t try to deny
    The heartache
    There’s only so much I can take.
    And I gave you chance after chance.
    But now I see the real you
    And that your love was not true.
    It’s only fitting that she got the last dance.
    Chorus: I guess I should have known better.
    You would talk about her forever.
    But you swore to me it was over with her.
    I should have seen right through those lies,
    Instead of falling for your big brown eyes.
    Cause in the end it would always be her.
    Verse 3: And you walked up to me that very next day,
    With a sad sad look up on your face.
    I knew just you wanted to say.
    But I didn’t let you talk.
    I said…
    Chorus: You know I should have known better.
    You would talk about her forever.
    But you swore to me it was over with her.
    But now I see right through your lies.
    And I’m not falling for those big brown eyes.
    Cause I know it will always be her.
    Yeah, you got caught in your game
    Only got yourself to blame.
    And in the end it will always be her.


    Hey, that's a great song! This is for the summertime theme right?

    {FOOTSTEPS}
    Each time I look into your eyes
    I see a darkness lurking beneath.
    You've placed a shadow over your heart
    Hiding it away each time that we meet.

    Our love was too destructive
    For both of us to carry it on.
    I knew that it was hopeless from the start
    Our happy times are long gone.

    I never asked you to haunt me
    And every time we pass I feel that cold wind blowing.
    I never wanted your ghost to follow me 'round
    Our past left footsteps forever in the ground.


    Will you continue to walk this earth
    Searching for something to fill the hole I left?
    You look empty, dark and alone
    Well did you know that it's my heart you wrecked?

    I never asked you to haunt me
    And every time we pass I feel that cold wind blowing.
    I never wanted your ghost to follow me 'round
    Our past left footsteps forever in the ground.


    Just accept that I'm gone
    Long gone, long gone
    You've broken my heart too many times
    Before
    I need your heaviness to leave me
    Because it's weighing me down
    After all this time I deserve to be happy
    So get out, go home!

    Haunting me, you'll never find what you need
    So please - I'm begging you to leave
    Me alone so I can move on and don't have to see
    Our past leaving footsteps forever in the ground.

    No longer will I be reminded
    Of our dreaded, devastating past.
    I'll never have your ghost follow me 'round.
    Cause I erased those footsteps that were in the ground.


    Stay Fearlessly Beautiful,

    TaylorRose xx

    Okay so here's my song ...

    Summer bid Goodbye

    It all starts in a summer evening
    We were walking down the pavement laughing
    Saying things we never would’ve told anyone
    You were the son of my daddy’s best friend
    We knew each other since we were eleven
    But everything changed on that 13th day
    Never realize then that I’ll have dreams
    About the time when you’ll take me in

    CHORUS
    I spent the summer with you
    That summer of ‘62
    I walked on those summer stones dancing
    Riding a pick-up truck on shotgun
    That was summer of blue faded jeans
    Just the summer of you and me
    Just the nights of secret love
    But soon enough that summer bid good bye

    And now I don’t even know if you remember those days
    When you said you can’t live without me
    But now I don’t even get to see your face
    Just fill the page with words to you I would’ve said

    Now I don’t know if you have a girlfriend
    I hope you remember my eyes when you look at her face
    I just want you to remember those bright summer days
    Before I could give you a last kiss I’m having to say

    [REPEAT CHORUS]

    So now maybe you walk along your back yard
    And picture me blushing
    When you think of Shakespeare and love
    I hope you think of me….

    So baby now if someday we meet in a mall
    Hopefully you’ll recall my voice when I call
    And then when you’ll memorize those days
    I’ll sparkle up and I should say

    CHANGED CHORUS
    I spent the best summer with you
    That summer I’ll long to back to
    Summer on those stones dancing
    Riding a pick-up truck on shotgun
    Just the summer of blue faded jeans
    Just the summer of gratitude and grin
    Maybe someday we’ll have a summer of you and me

    The last summer bid us a very Goodbye


    Pm me when the results are up

    Round 4 entry

    Cowgirl (by SwiftieForeva and WisfulThinkingAndMindlessDreaming)
    chorus
    come on cowgirl give me twirl
    come on give me a kiss.
    That will make my head whirl.
    You know you know you want to.
    You do you do you do, it's true.
    verse 1
    Theres a hoe-down at the barn
    And my date just canceled on me, darn
    We could dance until the light.
    Comes streaming in, wheres the night?
    We could go to the stream
    we could get stuck we make a good team
    it would be good luck, if we got out without some mud
    we could take some skinny dips and I’ll kiss you on the lips
    chorus
    come on cowgirl give me twirl
    come on give me a kiss.
    That will make my head whirl.
    You know you know you want to.
    You do you do you do, it's true.
    verse 2
    The whole summer could go by
    and you would give me a sigh
    and you look me in the eye
    and say baby don’t you cry
    in june we took a trip to the lake
    for our very first date"
    we also looked at the moon
    in july gone from your voice was the shy
    and for the first time our hearts flew together in the sky
    in august we kept our promise
    and like our love
    it was the hottest
    chorus
    come on cowgirl give me twirl
    come on give me a kiss.
    That will make my head whirl.
    You know you know you want to.
    You do you do you do, it's true.
    verse 3
    oh little cowgirl!
    you are so beautiful!
    you’e so unusual
    perfect in every way
    maybe someday
    when our burdens aren’t carried
    we could get married
    chorus (2)
    come on cowgirl give me twirl
    come on give me a kiss.
    That will make my head whirl.
    You know you know you want to.
    You do you do you do, it's true

    PM me please when winners are up!
