Blue October

I'll smile if I want to

I'm not afraid, gonna flaunt it too

What a glow when you're living true

Yeah

I'm living for the right now

I had a few friends show me how yeah

I take a deep breath and blow it out

Let it go

But listen I

I can't wait to see what's around the corner

I can't wait to soar

Baby, I lie awake and I watch you sleeping

Thinking it's the little things that make a home

Like dancing in the kitchen in the pale moonlight

Only care in the world is that our kids are alright

Daddy loves momma and momma loves him

Tomorrow we get to do it over again

So smile at me baby, take my breath away

With the good Lord willing, I'll be happy to say

That daddy loves momma and momma loves him

Tomorrow we get to do it over again

I feel like I'm gonna win

And I'm as proud as I've ever been

And old Cause I'm surrounded with some good friends yeah

Good friends, good friends aha ha

I'm forever like a tattoo, yeah

I stay sticky 'cause I gotta be the glue for

My girl, my friends, my home, family, I do it all

Truly I can't wait yeah

To see what's around the corner I

Can't wait to soar

But baby, I lie awake and I watch you sleeping

Thinking it's the little things that make a home yeah

'Cause we'll be dancing in the kitchen in the pale moonlight

Only care in the world is that our kids are alright

Daddy loves momma and momma loves him

Tomorrow we get to do it over again

So smile at me baby, take my breath away

With the good Lord willing, I'll be happy to say

That daddy loves momma and momma loves him

Tomorrow we get to do it over again

We found

Our home

Something we can build for years

The young

I'll be there to wipe your tears

We all get to see

Who we grow up to be

And anchor when in doubt

An ocean when in drought

We aim for it all

We lift of these walls

To make this house our home

Dancing in the kitchen in the pale moonlight

Only care in the world is that our kids are alright

Daddy loves momma and momma loves him

Tomorrow we get to do it over again

So smile at me baby, take my breath away

With the good Lord willing, I'll be happy to say

That daddy loves momma and momma loves him

Tomorrow we get to do it over again

Dancing in the kitchen in the pale moonlight

Only care in the world is that our kids are alright

Daddy loves momma and momma loves him

Tomorrow we get to do it over again

So smile at me baby, take my breath away

With the good Lord willing, I'll be happy to say

That daddy loves momma and momma loves him

Tomorrow we get to do it over again

The songwriter uses metaphor to explain how he will be there to wipe he's wife tears and he will be there to see how they have grown and use an anchor when they doubt and the ocean they drought. He also says that he will lift the walls if he haves too to make the house feel more like home.

What Hurts The Most

Rascal Flatts

I can take the rain on the roof of this empty house

That don't bother me

I can take a few tears now and then and just let 'em out

I'm not afraid to cry every once in a while

Even though goin' on with you gone still upsets me

There are days every now and again I pretend I'm okay

But that's not what gets me

What hurts the most was being so close

And havin' so much to say

And watchin' you walk away

And never knowin' what could've been

And not seein' that lovin' you

Is what I was trying to do

It's hard to deal with the pain of losin' you everywhere I go

But I'm doing it

It's hard to force that smile when I see our old friends and I'm alone

Still harder gettin' up, gettin' dressed, livin' with this regret

But I know if I could do it over

I would trade, give away all the words that I saved in my heart

That I left unspoken

What hurts the most was being so close

And havin' so much to say

And watchin' you walk away

And never knowin' what could've been

And not seein' that lovin' you

Is what I was trying to do, oh

What hurts the most was being so close

And havin' so much to say

And watchin' you walk away

And never knowin' what could've been

And not seein' that lovin' you

Is what I was trying to do

That's what I was trying to do, ooh

the songwriter creates imagery in this song because he explains how he can take the rain of the roof of an empty house and it won't bother him because he is alone. The songwriter also explains how it's okay to cry every once in awhile but his is pretending that he is okay because she's not with him.

Bless the Broken Road

rascal flatts

I set out on a narrow way many years ago

Hoping I would find true love along the broken road

But I got lost a time or two

Wiped my brow and kept pushing through

I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you

That every long lost dream lead me to where you are

Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars

Pointing me on my way into your loving arms

This much I know is true

That God blessed the broken road

That led me straight to you

Yes it did

I think about the years I spent just passing through

I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you

But you just smile and take my hand

You've been there you understand

It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true

Every long lost dream led me to where you are

And others who broke my heart they were like northern stars

Pointing me on my way into your loving arms

This much I know it's true

That God blessed the broken road

That led me straight to you

Yeah

And now I'm rolling home

Into my lover's arms

This much I know is true

That God blessed the broken road

That led me straight to you

That God blessed the broken road

Ooh, ooh

That led me straight to you

The songwriter uses simile to explain how he feels that everyone of his dreams lead him to her others broke his heart and he thinks they are like the northern stars. He also thinks about the years that they've been apart and he would like the time that he lost just to spend it with her.

Don't Get Hurt By Someone You Love

By: Astrid Herrera

I’m scared to fall

I’m scared to get hurt.

I’m afraid you’ll leave me

Without another word.

You won’t even tell me why,

The only thing you’ll leave me with

Is the word “goodbye”

How will I deal?

What will I say?

All this will be to me

Is another game I don’t have time to play.

My heart is already broken.

My heart is already worn.

I need to find all the pieces

That you tore.

Why did you do it?

What did I do wrong this time?

I knew you would leave me

In a blink of an eye.

It’s funny what they said.

If only you would have know

I’ve liked you since the day we met.

You used to pick me up when I fell.

I love how we could share secrets,

And maybe we still can.

But first we should let both our hearts mend.

Did it really hurt you as much as it did me?

I guess that’s just another thing we will have to see.

I really do love you.

I really do care.

I just wish that I had a heart

That you decided to spare.
