I wanna be dignified
Just let you pass on by
I'm not gonna place the blame
At your name
You played your part
You did fully deserve my heart
I wanna be dignified tonight

I know that some things fall apart
So that better things can start
Now I can't wait for what's heading my way
If it's true what they say
It's gotta be good
To beat you
(Repeat Chorus)
What we had we can't replace
And I'm grateful for every smile on your face
But the time has come to move on
I hope you respect me enough to move along
Now we must part ways
I'll be missing you every day but
(Repeat Chorus)
I'm not gonna pretend like it meant nothing
Cos you know it meant a great deal
And I know I'm not gonna get back
The way you make me feel
But the sun is rising on a new day
And we can't go on loving this way
So dignified I'll be dignified
Hide those tears in my eyes
I don't wanna place the blame
At your name no-o
Cos you played your part like a star.

*You know how it is. When you just want to be 'normal' with someone again and stop seeing them as everything you never had but want. I wrote this lyric at university a few years before I got into the routine of having relationships. This was written about someone who was a passing fancy. I'd fallen deep for him. But this was the first step to getting over him.

'Can't Have Me'

There was a time when I wanted your eyes on me
When I wanted you to see
What we could have been
But now that time has gone
Now it's time to sing a news song

So stop saying you miss me
You can't go on if we can't be
Please just make peace
With the fact that you no longer have me
Stop saying you love me
You're just opening up scars on repeat
Please let it be
That you can't have me

You blew your shot
Now I can't help you if you're not satisfied with what you've got
My love for you has reached its final stop
That time we shared is dead and gone
Can't rewind and sing the same old song
(Repeat Chorus).

'Beginning To Get Over You'


We had a chance to be
But you missed your opportunity
To talk to me
We had everything running smoothly
But you had to be dumb
And now I’m starting to move on

Did you think I wouldn’t be able to
Live my life without you
Did you really think
You were my missing link
Well you missed your cue
So now I’m beginning to get over you

We had a chance to be
But it’s past tense now it’s history
You must have never really cared about me
We had everything on a plate
But you forgot to make your move
So now I bid farewell to you
(Repeat Chorus)
You see I am beginning to get over you
Cos you, you missed your cue
You were meant to be the hero coming to save me
But I guess you were a zero not a hero baby
And now I say goodbye
To you, you’re just like any other guy
Cos you missed your cue
So now I am beginning to get over you
You did you think I wouldn’t be able to?
Live without you
You did you really think?
You were my missing link
Well now I find it easy to do
Just get over you
Hey hmmm.

I wrote this about someone who I thought I was irrefutably in love with when I was at uni but we were worlds apart. This lyric helped me realise that!

'Keep On Pretending'

People make mistakes
Mine was letting you break
Into my heart to take
Everything away hey
Cos now I’m left
With nothing but a sharp cleft
Tearing me slowly
From the place I used to be

I thought I had you
Cos in my head you loved me too
But that was just a fairytale
That’s never gonna get a happy ending
I’d rather you told me didn’t keep on pretending
Like we had was something real
But it was all in my head cos you couldn’t feel

People are happy
If they make their minds up to be
So I’m gonna keep smiling
Even though the flower is dying
Cos now I see
The time wasn’t right for you and me
At least I know
And you know you took a piece of my soul
(Repeat Chorus)
So don’t worry
Every masterpiece has begun with a single word
No don’t worry
I just thought I’d bring some light to your world
But no it is not to be
I can stop wasting my time on dreams yeah.
