Melissa O’Neil String Me Along

I took my chances

I knew that you were trouble

But you’re like a magnet

When you get closer, you pull me onnn

You said, we’ll never go wrong

A promise you can’t keep

Today, my memory’s so long

Long gone (could it be that)

[Chorus:]

I’m better off, on my own

Then you kick and you screa and you break me

I’m thinkin’ it’s time that I’m gone

Then you push and you pull and you string me along

You play these waiting games

But I’m finally tryin’ to stake my claim with you

I’m so tired of holdin’ on

When you string me along

I might get stuck in

This tangled web you’re weavin’

I’m like your puppet

But you’re strangling’ my breathin’

You said be patient with me

To be honest, I can’t hang

Today these chains don’t fit me and

I’m not gunna play in your game (could it be that)

[Chorus 2:]

I’m better off, on my own

But you kick and you scream, and you break me

I’m thinkin’ it’s time that I’m gone

But you push and you pull and you string me along

You keep on playing games

But I’m finally tryin’ to break away from you

I’m so tired of holdin’ on

When you string me along

A broken heart, a broken promise

That’s all you leave behind for me

Lookin’ up to you I lost focus

Now I’ll bring it back to where it used to be

You make it so hard to do it

And I know you don’t want me to leave, Oh-no-no

Nooo..so you kick and scream and you push and you

Pull, and you string me along

[Chorus:]

I’m better off, on my own

Then you kick and you screa and you break me

I’m thinkin’ it’s time that I’m gone

Then you push and you pull and you string me along

You play these waiting games

But I’m finally tryin’ to stake my claim with you

I’m so tired of holdin’ on

When you string me along

Melissa O’Neil Outside Looking In

Tell me what are you hiding, under the stairs

Tell me what’s in your closet, what’s got you scared

Cause I’ve come so far, to know who you are

And you always leave me waiting

[Chorus:]

I’m so tired of standin here at your door

It’s not what I wanted I want more

I wish I knew what was inside but I’ve always been

On the outside looking in

Feels like I’ve know you forever but what do I know

You never answer my questions, only the door

So I wait for you to show me who

You are, but I’m still waitin’

[Chorus:]

I’m so tired of standin here at your door

It’s not what I wanted I want more

I wish I knew what was inside but I’ve always been

On the outside looking in

Do your secrets keep you warm at night or do they keep you lonely?

Do the brick walls keep you safe from hamr, is that why you won’t get to know me?

[Chorus:]

I’m so tired of standin here at your door

It’s not what I wanted I want more

I wish I knew what was inside but I’ve always been

On the outside looking in

Melissa O’Neil Safe Place To Hide

I know

That it has been hard for you

It must be killing you

And I can feel

How it pulls at you

It pulls at me too

I would run away to the world I lef behind

I will find away back to you

[Chorus:]

And when you’ve got no where to turn

And you’re all alone

When your walls a breaking yet there’s no escaping

And I, I’d fly through the night

To get back to your side

I will be your safe place to hide

I was, always there for you

Always cared for you

And I’m still

Right here guarding you

Watching over you

Though I’m miles away

From the world I left behind

I will find a way back to you

[Chorus:]

And when you’ve got no where to turn

And you’re all alone

When your walls a breaking yet there’s no escaping

And I, I’d fly through the night

To get back to your side

I will be your safe place to hide

I’ll be there by your side

The safe place that you hide cause nothings really changing

I’m just a few more miles away

And when you’ve got no where to turn

And you’re all alone

Your walls are a breaking

Yet there’s no escaping and

I, I’d fly through the night

To get back to your side

To be your safe place to hide

To be your safe place to hide

Melissa O’Neil Speechless

I find I get lost for words around you

Overwhelmed by your presence

I feel the same, I hear the words you won’t say

Echo through your eyes

Nothing more for me to say

Silence understands some things

What is meant to be, will be

[Chorus:]

Sometimes it’s the words we don’t say that get in the way

Time will break down the walls that we’ve built between us

I won’t ever be speechless

This feeling takes me just like a painted sky

how do I describe all these colours inside

Nothing left for me to say anyway

[Chorus:]

Sometimes it’s the words we don’t say that get in the way

Time will break down the walls that we’ve built

Sometimes it’s the words we don’t say that get in the way

Time will break down the walls that we’ve built between us.

I wanna know you inside out

I want to know you without a doubt

And though we’re shy

Would it be easier just to say goodbye

I want to learn to read your mind

I want to say the words but my tongue gets tied

And don’t feel shy

Would it be easier just to say goodbye

I find I get lost for words around you

Overwhelmed by your presence

[Chorus:]

Sometimes it’s the words we don’t say that get in the way

Time will break down the walls that we’ve built

Sometimes it’s the words we don’t say that get in the way

Time will break down the walls that we’ve built between us

I won’t ever be

Won’t ever be

I won’t ever be
