Original Song Lyrics

Walk Away LP (2018)

I Thought By Now

I thought by now I’d have the house the car the job to make ends meet

I figured I might have my better half sitting here with me

Oh I hoped I’d have a kid or two or maybe we’d have three

I thought by now I thought by now 

 

I thought by now I’d have the perfect life like on the movie screen

I thought by now I’d be living my life like the American dream

I thought by now we’d have the best of things, it all figured out 

I thought by now I thought by now 

 

And in time I’d have paid all my dues and all my debts 

I figured I’d be past all the trials and regrets   

Oh I thought I’d have everything I had dreams about 

I thought by now I thought by now

 

I thought by now I’d have the perfect life like on the movie screen

I thought by now I’d be living my life like the American dream

I thought by now we’d have the best of things, it all figured out 

I thought by now I thought by now 

 

I thought by now I’d want the house the car the job to make ends meet

Now all I want is my better half sitting here by me. 

Walk Away

Lookin ‘round thinking bout all the things you said and the way we were

Can't help but stop to think about now how I don't wanna be her

We had a long run and it sure was fun but now I'm thinking how it lasted way too long

Tryin to find the sun in dark of night, but the good is gone 

 

Gonna walk gonna walk gonna walk gonna walk gonna walk away

Gonna walk gonna walk gonna walk gonna walk gonna walk away

Getting tired of these little weights you're wearing on me

Gonna walk gonna walk gonna walk ‘cause I'm tired of wearing them boyfriend jeans 

 

Lookin ‘round thinking bout the day we met and how it took a turn 

Can't help but stop to think about now that crash and burn 

Mixing up flights, many sleepless nights, waiting on you, ‘stead of living my life 

No I didn't know then, but up ahead I can see the light 

 

Gonna walk gonna walk gonna walk gonna walk gonna walk away

Gonna walk gonna walk gonna walk gonna walk gonna walk away

Getting tired of these little weights you're wearing on me

Gonna walk gonna walk gonna walk ‘cause I'm tired of wearing them boyfriend jeans 

You + Me

Give me your hand and I’ll take you somewhere

I don’t have a plan, but I’m thinking that’s okay

 

‘Cause it’s you and me darling running around in the middle of nowhere

You and me, baby              

Please tell me you might be thinking “maybe”

I’ll give you my hand and go with you someplace

You might not have a plan, but baby I don’t care

 

‘Cause it’s you and me that I see running around in the middle of nowhere

You and me, baby

Oh I’ve been thinking a lot about you lately

 

Tell me your dreams and I’ll try real hard to be your everything.

I don’t have a clue, but I know, I know baby… I’m in love with you.

 

I can’t promise you things, but here, take my heart

Who knows what life may bring, but let’s just start with

You and me, darling running around in the middle of nowhere

You and me, baby…

‘Cause it’s you and me that I see, running around in the middle of nowhere

 

You and me baby,

‘Cause you’re all I need

You’re all I need, you’re all I need.

Give me your hand

And I’ll take you somewhere.

Dance in the Rain

I hope for you that you always smile

I hope that you stay small for a little while

I hope you find all you desire

If life gets hard reach a little bit higher

 

I hope that you reach for the stars

Even if they seem too far

I hope when you reach the stars

You don't forget who you are

 

And if you're stuck in a storm

And if you're stuck in a storm

 

I hope you dance, dance in the rain 

I hope you dance, dance in the rain

 

I hope the storm passes fast

And tears of joy are all that you have

Stand your ground when the worlds caving in

Hold on tight to the little things

 

I hope that you never try to bring anyone down, only up

I hope if you ever fall, you're falling in love

I hope you still take a hand when you're crossing a road

Cause life without somebody's hand is hard you know

 

And when the storm is raging in

 When the storm is raging in

I hope you dance, dance in the rain 

I hope you dance, dance in the rain

 

I hope you learn how to fly and you soar

I hope you leave this world better than it was before

 

And when the wind starts to blow

When the storm comes in slow

 

I hope you dance, dance in the rain 

I hope you dance, dance in the rain

I hope you give more than you take

I hope you dance, dance in the rain

 

Dance in the rain

Dance in the rain 

Dance in the rain

Dance in the rain
