Maria Mena Interesting

If I had the chance to go back in time

I’d tell the younger me to breathe, cos you’ll be fine

Trust the path you’re on and dream

Write down the words on your mind

I once thought that a life lived in peace

Would lack any interesting aspects

That only suffering creates nuance(s)

But I am at my most inspired

In the arms of those who love me

Layers of life only we see

Shit just got interesting.

If I could say one thing and know that

The whole world was all ears I’d say

Why are you listening to me?

Follow your instincts, it’s easy

Once you’re honest with yourselves

You do not need any help.

Shit just got interesting.

Maria Mena Sleep To Dream

You have it all

The ceiling cracks

And you fly

But I fall again

Please say goodbye

Take your love out of me

And don’t ask me why

I’m not your friend

Trying to stand

But you bend me again

What’s up with that

Takes more then this for me to take off my hat

but these set of floors

Between you and me

I sleep to dream

I sleep to dream

but these set of floors

Between you and me

I sleep to dream

I sleep to dream

So you kissed me now

This face doesn’t seem so great after all

Please let me go

I need to hear myself think

I only hear the water flow

I’m not your friend

Trying to stand

But you bend me again

What’s up with that

Takes more then this for me

To take off my hat

but these set of floors

Between you and me

I sleep to dream

I sleep to dream

but these set of floors

Between you and me

I sleep to dream

I sleep to dream

but these set of floors

Between you and me

I sleep to dream

I sleep to dream

I’m not your friend

Trying to stand

But you bend me again

What’s up with that

Takes more then this

For me to take off my hat

Takes more then this

For me to take off my hat

Takes more then this

For me to take off my hat

but these set of floors

Between you and me

I sleep to dream

I sleep to dream

[x3]

Yea these set of floors

Between you and me…

Maria Mena Ugly

Look at us now, generation next

damaged somehow, but we try our best.

And we’re all the same, but that doesn’t make us

right.

And where do you turn?

Where do you sleep at night?

So now you think we’re ugly,

like I don’t have enough to worry about.

Why do you think I’m ugly?

Which magazine did ya read so you could judge me

now?

Look at us stare,

jealous of what they wear.

Dad gives you money, but he’s never there.

And we cry out for love, never get enough of

that.

And now you’re into drugs and all that “other”

stuff.

And now you think we’re ugly,

like I don’t have enough to worry about.

Why do you think I’m ugly?

Which magazine did ya read so you could judge me

now?

So now you think we’re ugly,

like I don’t have enough to worry about.

Why do you think I’m ugly?

Which magazine did ya read so you could judge me

now?

People have said to me

they think they’re better then me, and I agree,

yeah.

People changing me

telling me what to think and who to be.

No wonder why we’re confused…

are you me?

So now you think we’re ugly,

like I don’t have enough to worry about.

Why do you think I’m ugly?

Which magazine did ya read so you could judge me

now? [2x]

So now you think we’re ugly, ugly, ugly

Maria Mena Caught Off Guard, Floored By Love

Here comes another broken heart

Spotted a while back

Back at the start

We’re oddly getting used to this aren’t we?

Sunday sober loneliness

I’m its inventor

Reigning princess

I’m contemplating giving in

Keep drinking

But they say, just when

You’re not afraid

Not expecting

You will be caught off guard,

Floored by love

I don’t know if I’m capable

Of loving madly, I’ve never tried the

Unapologetic kind of falling

I don’t know if I’m lovable

I don’t know my own worth

But I know my soul.

I’ll wait my turn, I want to learn, I’m ready.

But they say, just when

You’re not afraid

Not expecting

You will be caught off guard,

Floored by love

Maria Mena It Took Me By Surprise

I would react badly

To the slightest hint of hesitance

He’d bend awkwardly to suit my mood

No word from his defense

I’d cry knowing how my tears

Felt like acid burning through his skin

Pushed every little button

But the right one that would let me in

Now he’s afraid of me

He’s afraid of me

It took me by surprise

The hatred in his eyes

I’ve pushed this man as far as he could go

But he lacked the words to let me know

He acted out, now I can see it is my fault

I made changes that went unnoticed

Sang songs for deaf ears

He mistook my silence for punishment

As it had been all these years

I’d cry knowing how my tears

Felt like acid burning through his skin

Now he’s afraid of me

He’s afraid of me

It took me by surprise

The hatred in his eyes

I’ve pushed this man as far as he could go

But he lacked the words to let me know

He acted out, now I-

It took me by surprise

The hatred in his eyes

I’ve pushed this man as far as he could go

But he lacked the words to let me know

He acted out, now I can see it is my fault

Maria Mena You’re All Telling Stories

You look like you just lost your dearest friend.

Played a round of a sisterly game called “pretend”.

The dice landed on feelings not returned,

I was a fool I didn’t learn.

Close to the fire felt the burn.

This is a tale ‘bout loyalty to me.

A friendship’s end, of course, amicably.

I must apologize for my cold goodbye,

This is my life, the reason why,

You’re not allowed here back inside.

I remember when I first laid eyes on you.

I thought here’s one that understands my truth.

You seemed as openly-closed as myself,

I felt intrigued I felt unwell,

I had no choice I had to tell.

But once entrusted with my biggest fears

I’ve questioned where I’ve had you through the years.

You kept a portion of my heart to sell

You did not treat it very well

Although I begged you not to tell.

You’re all telling stories,

You’re all telling lies,

How come you’re so blurry?

You’re all in disguise.

There are some people you’ll know all your life.

A constant group that leave you feeling safe.

But I have learned that some are there to change you,

Leave you wiser, rearranged but then are better left estranged.

I heard you met him out the other night.

And drunkenly expressed with all your might.

That you still miss our friendship but abstain from taking action,

Still the same, I don’t miss fractions, can’t complain.

You’re all telling stories,

You’re all telling lies,

How come you’re so blurry?

You’re all in disguise.

Maria Mena Free

I’ve been walking around all day, thinking

I think I have a problem, I think I think too much

I’ve been tought to hold back my tears and avoid them

But you’ve made pain into something I could touch

I’ve been walking around all day, laughing

Think I’d be better off without you here

And I bet you are sweet and hard to get over

So I’ll cry and people will stop and stare

Now that’s ok, let them stop and stare…

Coz I am fragile

I am hopeless

I’m not perfect

But I am free…

I’ve been walking around all day, waiting

And waiting is all I seem to do

’cause I never get it unless I’m fed it

But this time I’ll just have to

Yeah this time I’ll just have to…

And I am fragile

I am hopeless

I’m not perfect

But I am free…

Say you’re not around… am I finished?

If you’re not around that’s too bad

Hope you’re safe and sound, not alone now

’cause you know I believe in you…

I am so fragile

I am so hopeless

I’m not perfect

But I am free…

And I am fragile

I am hopeless

I’m not perfect

But I am free…

Cos I am fragile

I am hopeless

I’m not perfect

But I am free

Maria Mena Take You With Me

November came down hard this year

And I saw you standing clear of the rain

Falling free but I was ready to finally come clean

Observe me in my circus show

On a thin line as I take the rope

And lose my grip

But you pull me back

With your hand in my hand

And our feet all in line

Im ready take you with me

To take you with me

November came down hard this year

And I saw you standing clear of the rain

Falling free but I was ready to finally come clean

Your hand in my hand

And our feet all in line

Im ready take you with me

To take you with me

Your hand in my hand

And our feet all in line

Im ready take you with me

To take you with me
