you are doing this#61*

Chorus

I'm torn apart inside; you are doing this to me. Do you like to make me suffer? Do you like to make me cry? I just can’t make up my mind about you. Do I like you or do I hate you? I honestly can’t decide

Verse 1

You have hurt me, you have also made me happy though, that’s why I can’t make up my mind, I'm just so torn between my feelings about you, I need someone to help me out here, maybe and hopefully….you…

Chorus

I'm torn apart inside; you are doing this to me. Do you like to make me suffer? Do you like to make me cry? I just can’t make up my mind about you. Do I like you or do I hate you? I honestly can’t decide

Verse 2

My life has never been easy, and I don’t think it ever will be, at least not as long as it’s like this between us, it would be great if I could just get over you, but I doubt that will happen anytime soon, I just wish you would do something, anything, to help me make up my mind

Chorus

I'm torn apart inside; you are doing this to me. Do you like to make me suffer? Do you like to make me cry? I just can’t make up my mind about you. Do I like you or do I hate you? I honestly can’t decide. I'm torn apart inside; you are doing this to me. Do you like to make me suffer? Do you like to make me cry? I just can’t make up my mind about you. Do I like you or do I hate you? I honestly can’t decide. No matter how hard I try, I can’t get over you; there is just something about you that makes it impossible for me

 

i think about you all the time#62

Chorus

I think about you all the time, I can’t get you off my mind, I really think I could fall in love with you, I know that I already love you, but I just can’t quite say that I'm in love, I hope that we will be together

Verse 1

I keep having this dream, it’s an awesome dream, to me, and I have had it every night lately, I remember the dream perfectly, I'm constantly thinking, remembering, dreaming, no matter what, I can’t get you out of my mind, I really think I love you

Chorus

I think about you all the time, I can’t get you off my mind, I really think I could fall in love with you, I know that I already love you, but I just can’t quite say that I'm in love, I hope that we will be together

Verse 2

I constantly draw hearts on my papers and my hand, there is never more than 2 maybe 3 days when I don’t have a heart on my hand, my friends even came up with a nickname for you, so that less people will know who I keep thinking about, my friends say that I'm obsessed but I just say that I'm slowly but surely falling in love

Chorus

I think about you all the time, I can’t get you off my mind, I really think I could fall in love with you, I know that I already love you, but I just can’t quite say that I'm in love, I hope that we will be together

Verse 3

I don’t know what it is about you that I can’t resist, maybe it’s that smile, those eyes, your laugh, maybe it’s everything about you, like how you play guitar, football, how you sing, maybe it’s all the little things that you do, maybe it’s just you

Chorus

I'm always thinking about you, I can’t get you off my mind, I really think I could fall in love with you, if I'm not already, I know that I love you, but I could never admit it, not yet, I'm definitely falling for you, I hope that you will give me a chance, I hope that we will be together, I hope that one day, you will be able to admit that you might love me back, I really do love you and I think I'm in love with you

 

I'm complicated#63

Chorus

People think they know me, but they only know the small part of me that I show, people think I'm either hyper or depresses, but that’s not true, there is so much more to me than anyone knows, I'm not as simple as they think, I'm complicated

Verse 1

I love to act, I love to sing, I love to be dramatic, I love to be myself, when I'm talking to him, I relax and I am me, maybe that’s why I try to spend time talking to him, I'm really starting to fall for him

Chorus

People think they know me, but they only know the small part of me that I show, people think I'm either hyper or depresses, but that’s not true, there is so much more to me than anyone knows, I'm not as simple as they think, I'm complicated

Verse 2

I trust who I am, I know who I am, I love who I am, yeah I'm complicated, but who isn’t? I really am myself when I'm not at school, I don’t know what it is, but I never seem to find myself while I'm there, but when I'm on the phone with him, I become who I really am, I become myself, I never have to act or pretend when I'm around him, and that’s why I can honestly say that I love him, I don’t just love him, I love who I am when I'm with him

Final chorus

People think they know me, but they only know the small part of me that I show, hey think I'm always hyper or depressed, but that’s so not the case, there is so much more than meets the eye, I'm complicated, I'm not a simple person, I'm complicated, I am me, I love who I am, I'm not a simple person, I'm complicated……

 

how can i still love him?#64*

Chorus

How can I still love him? How can he still mean so much to me? Why can’t I just forget? Why am I doing this to myself? Why do I love him as much as I do? After all that he put me through, after how bad he hurt me, after how broken I was. How can I still love him?

Verse 1

I was so happy, so in love, so trusting, but then he made me become so broken, so hurt, so guarded, and someone how still loving, no matter how bad he has hurt me, I still manage to find a way to love him with the shattered bits of my heart, I wonder every day, How can I still love him?

Chorus

How can I still love him? How can he still mean so much to me? Why can’t I just forget? Why am I doing this to myself? Why do I love him as much as I do? After all that he put me through, after how bad he hurt me, after how broken I was. How can I still love him?

Verse 2

We got so close, so fast, I almost didn’t know what was happening, I trusted him so much, I believed everything he told me, I thought things would last, I thought I could trust him so I did, I trusted with my whole heart, he broke everything, but I still love him, more than anyone could ever understand

Chorus

How can I still love him? How can he still mean so much to me? Why can’t I just forget? Why am I doing this to myself? Why do I love him as much as I do? After all that he put me through, after how bad he hurt me, after how broken I was. How can I still love him?

Verse 3

I can’t believe that I trusted so much, so fully, so completely, and now, I wouldn’t trust him with the smallest secret, if he knew he would probably feel a little hurt but why should I even come close to trusting him, why should I give him another chance? Why shouldn’t I be hurt?

Chorus

How can I still love him? How can he still mean so much to me? Why can’t I just forget? Why am I doing this to myself? Why do I love him as much as I do? After all that he put me through, after how bad he hurt me, after how broken I was. How can I still love him? How can I still love him? How can he still mean so much to me? Why can’t I just forget? Why am I doing this to myself? Why do I love him as much as I do? After all that he put me through, after how bad he hurt me, after how broken I was. How can I still love him?

 

the south Dakota song#65*

Chorus

Its days like this when I wish I could fall asleep and never wake up, never have to feel this pain again, never have to remember that you were in my life, move one and try to forget, you really did shatter me and take away all my hope, I wish you could have thought, I wish I could go back in time to when you asked me out, I wish I had said no or I only want to be friends, I wish I could have saved myself the pain of losing you, I just wish I could have thought a little more and trusted a lot less

Verse 1

You were everything to me, and now I can’t stand to even look at you, it’s not that I don’t love the sight of you, it’s just that I can’t look or think about you without breaking down, I'm sick of crying, I'm tired of trying, yeah I might be smiling but inside I'm dying, and all because you smiled or even texted me, I'm totally broken and it’s all because of you

Chorus

Its days like this when I wish I could fall asleep and never wake up, never have to feel this pain again, never have to remember that you were in my life, move one and try to forget, you really did shatter me and take away all my hope, I wish you could have thought, I wish I could go back in time to when you asked me out, I wish I had said no or I only want to be friends, I wish I could have saved myself the pain of losing you, I just wish I could have thought a little more and trusted a lot less

Verse 2

I have cried so much, I have hurt so bad, if you knew about all the tears I have cried over you, you probably couldn’t look me in the eyes again, if you could see the hurt in my heart, you probably couldn’t touch me again, if you knew how bad you hurt me, you probably couldn’t even talk to me again

Chorus

Its days like this when I wish I could fall asleep and never wake up, never have to feel this pain again, never have to remember that you were in my life, move one and try to forget, you really did shatter me and take away all my hope, I wish you could have thought, I wish I could go back in time to when you asked me out, I wish I had said no or I only want to be friends, I wish I could have saved myself the pain of losing you, I just wish I could have thought a little more and trusted a lot less

Outro: (spoken) this song was writing about my first heart break. It was all great while it lasted but all great things come to an end sooner or later and this ended a lot sooner than I thought it would.  I wrote this right after he dumped me. I was in South Dakota on a mission trip, I cried all night; I also wrote a three page letter before this song. I actually laughed at the fact that he didn’t have the balls to wait until I was in the same state. I mean I was thousands of miles away from him, and the best of the story is that he dumped me over text. Can anyone have less never than that? Well I think I'm trying to say that I'm still completely and hopelessly in love with him

 

make up your mind#66*

Chorus

I'm sick of this, I'm sick of your games, I'm sick of the lies, I just want you to be honest, I just want you to be honest, I just want you to be a little more obvious with stuff, just tell me what I should do! You say that you still love me but you’re the one that broke up with me and now you have a new girlfriend. MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!!!

Verse 1

I cry almost every time I talk to you, knowing that you’re gonna go talk to her later, I don’t know why I can’t let go, and just move on, there is something that keeps me from forgetting….hope, you said that you still love me but how can that be true?

Verse 2

Why can’t you just make things clear between us? Why do you try to make things complicated? Please just make up your mind!!!! I don’t want to play these games anymore, I don’t want to hear anymore lies, so please, make up your mind, are we bound to only be friends or will we ever be more?

Chorus

I'm sick of this, I'm sick of your games, I'm sick of the lies, I just want you to be honest, I just want you to be honest, I just want you to be a little more obvious with stuff, just tell me what I should do!
