Sabrina Carpenter – Eyes Wide Open
Lyrics
La di da da da na
Yeah
Everybody loves to tell me I was born an old soul
Better keep my eyes wide open
There’s so much that I don’t know
Just another hotel room
Never felt so all alone
I think about my granddad’s eyes,
And they always send me home
I can almost hear him now
Gotta make him proud
I keep my eyes wide open
Bless this ground, unbroken
I’m about to make my way
Heaven help me keep my faith
And my eyes wide open
La
Whoa
I can’t see two steps ahead of me,
When the fog comes rollin’ in
I never thought I’d miss the rain
Lord knows how long it’s been
This dream burns inside of me,
And I can’t just let it go
There’s still so much that I don’t know
I keep my eyes wide open
Bless this ground, unbroken
I’m about to make my way
Heaven help me keep my faith
And my eyes wide open, yeah
All I have is just this moment
And I don’t want to miss a second
‘Cause it could all be gone in an instant
Yeah, in an instant
I keep my eyes wide open
Bless this ground, unbroken
I’m about to make my way
Heaven help me keep my faith
And my eyes wide open
I’m about to make my way
Heaven help me keep my faith
My eyes wide open
Keep my eyes wide open

Red peeling paint
wood worn smooth

It is literally just hearts
a rainbow in the rain
I love unicorns

Who put pain in paint?
Why is whoa in worn?

My first crush was an idiot, a waste of time, and manipulative.

crumbling barn sits
On a hill
abandoned isolation
Solitude is a synonym for isolation.

What once lived in the barn?
A family of tiny screech owls?

I’m fearless. Sitting around doing nothing.
I don’t think about the coming month or even finishing this poem.
Nobody knows that I really belt out songs when I’m alone.
I make time to love people.

I am happy.
cuz that’s how I am.

Issues
Julia Michaels

I’m jealous, I’m overzealous
When I’m down, I get real down
When I’m high, I don’t come down
I get angry, baby, believe me
I could love you just like that
And I could leave you just as fast

But you don’t judge me
‘Cause if you did, baby, I would judge you too
No, you don’t judge me
‘Cause if you did, baby, I would judge you too

‘Cause I got issues
But you got ’em too
So give ’em all to me
And I’ll give mine to you
Bask in the glory
Of all our problems
‘Cause we got the kind of love
It takes to solve ’em

Yeah, I got issues
And one of them is how bad I need you

You do shit on purpose
You get mad and you break things
Feel bad, try to fix things
But you’re perfect
Poorly wired circuit
And got hands like an ocean
Push you out, pull you back in

‘Cause you don’t judge me
‘Cause if you did, baby, I would judge you too
No, you don’t judge me
‘Cause you see it from the same point of view

‘Cause I got issues
But you got ’em too
So give ’em all to me
And I’ll give mine to you
Bask in the glory
Of all our problems
‘Cause we got the kind of love
It takes to solve ’em

Yeah, I got issues
And one of them is how bad I need you

(I got issues, you got ’em too)
And one of them is how bad I need you
(I got issues, you got ’em too)

‘Cause I got issues
(I got)
But you got ’em too
So give ’em all to me
(You got ’em too)
And I’ll give mine to you
Bask in the glory
(I got issues)
Of all our problems
‘Cause we got the kind of love
(You got ’em too)
It takes to solve ’em

Yeah, I got issues (I got)
And one of them is how bad I need you (You got ’em too)
Yeah, I got issues (I got issues)
And one of them is how bad I need you (You got ’em too)
Yeah, I got issues (I got)
And one of them is how bad I need you

Whispered

2:04 minutes

It seemed like a miracle that he was there, his arms still waiting for me. He reached out to me, and my heart thumped unsteadily.

“Welcome back,” he murmured, caking me into his arms.

He rocked me for a while in silence, until I noticed that his clothes were changed, his hair smooth.

“You left?” I accused, touching the collar of his fresh shirt.

“I could hardly leave in the clothes I came in — what would the neighbors think?”

I pouted.

“You were very deeply asleep; I didn’t miss anything.”

His eyes gleamed. “The talking came earlier.”

I groaned. “What did you hear?”

His gold eyes grew very soft. “You said you loved me.”

“You knew that already,” I reminded him, ducking my head.

“It was nice to hear, just the same.”

I hid my face against his shoulder.

“I love you,” I whispered.

“Does Anybody Hear Her”

by Casting Crowns

She is running
A hundred miles an hour in the wrong direction
She is trying
But the canyon’s ever widening
In the depths of her cold heart
So she sets out on another misadventure just to find
She’s another two years older
And she’s three more steps behind

Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even know she’s going down today
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that’s tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?

She is yearning
For shelter and affection
That she never found at home
She is searching
For a hero to ride in
To ride in and save the day
And in walks her Prince Charming
And he knows just what to say
Momentary lapse of reason
And she gives herself away

Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even know she’s going down today
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that’s tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?

If judgement looms under every steeple
If lofty glances from lofty people
Can’t see past her scarlet letter
And we never even met her
Never even met her
(Never Even Met her)

Does anybody hear her? Does anybody see?
Or does anybody even know she’s going down today
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that’s tucked away in you and me

Does anybody hear her? Does anybody see?
Does anybody even know she’s going down today
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that’s tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her? Does anybody see?

He is running
A hundred miles an hour in the wrong direction
