Set me free Leave me be I dont wanna fall another moment into your gravity
Here I am And I stand So tall Just the way I'm supposed to be But you're on to me And all over me
The time that I've taken I pray is not wasted Have I already tasted My piece of one sweet love
I don't care For your fairytales You're so worried about the maiden Oh, you know she's only waiting on the next best thing
I'm going down Follow if you want I won't just hang around Like you'll show me where to go I'm already out Of foolproof ideas So don't ask me how To get started It's all uncharted
Ooh, how'm I gonna get over you? I'll be alright Just not tonight But someday
I'll be alright Once I find the other side Of someday
"Gonna Get Over You"
Written by Bareilles and Sam Farrar
Who cares if you disagree? You are not me Who made you king of anything? So you dare Tell me who to be Who died and made you king of anything?
I wanna darken in the skies Open the floodgates up I wanna change my mind I wanna be enough I want the water in my eyes I wanna cry until the end of time I wanna let the rain come down Make a brand new ground
Maybe nobody loved you when you were young Maybe, boy, when you cry nobody ever comes Will you try it once? Give up the machine gun
They may be lies But say that we'll be alright If we stay tonight
A tongue like yours should be burned and branded So I can see you lie to me I wish the air would color red when you breathed it Oh, so I could've seen it coming Look in my eyes when you say you love me So I can see you lie to me
Mean songs are still better than going postal
I say what I think Because it's more economic than drugs or a drink
I wonder what would happen if you Say what you want to say And let the words fall out Honestly, I want to see you be brave
Brave" Written by Bareilles and Jack Antonoff
You said Remember that life is Not meant to be wasted We can always be chasing the sun So fill up your lungs and just—run! We can always be chasing the sun
So how do you do it? With just words and just music Capture the feeling That my earth is somebody's ceiling Can I deliver in sound The weight of the ground of a cemetery in the center of Queens
You can have Manhattan I know it's for the best Gather up the avenues and leave them on your doorstep
You are all just perfect little satellites Spinning round and round this broken Earthy life
I've got my little black dress on And if I tell myself that nothing's wrong This doesn't have to be a sad song Not with my little black dress on.
I would die to make you mine Bleed me dry almost every time But I don't mind, no I don't mind it I would come back 1000 times
Tell the world that we finally got it all right I choose you I will become yours and you will become mine I choose you.
I Choose You" Written by Bareilles, Jason Blynn, and Pete Harper
There's no way to make the pain play fair It doesn't disappear just because you say it isn't there
Written by Bareilles and Matt Hales
It can't be a mistake If I just call it change
