Hi. I have been writing songs since I was a kid and I was wondering if some of you could take a look at them.
If you are someone who needs songs, I'd be happy to supply some, so just let me know.
And here are the songs:

Broken Down

This house
It used to be my home
And now, itís falling apart
Just like me
On the inside
In spite of everything I do

This place
Became the refuge of my dreams
Made an impact on my future
And now, itís barely standing
Just like me
Falling over again
In spite of my feet on the ground

This waiting has me feeling
Broken down
Waiting just for you to
Come around
I shouldnít be too bothered
Broken down
But youíve become my shelter
And now weíve broken down

This house
Was home to love and tenderness
Sometimes
It was valued even less
But now the tableís turned and
Lifeís become a merry-go-round

This place
Used to be where I would run to
Every day
Even when you were away
And now weíre both falling over
Now weíre both falling apart

This waiting has me feeling
Broken down
Waiting just for you to
Come around
I shouldnít be too bothered
Broken down
But youíve become my shelter
And now weíve broken down

This waiting has me feeling
Broken down
Waiting just for you to
Rescue me and come around
Though I shouldnít be too bothered
Iím sitting here on the front step
Falling apart, broken down
ĎCause youíve become my shelter
And now weíre broken down

This waiting has me feeling
Broken down
Waiting just for you to
Come around
I shouldnít be too bothered
Broken down
But youíve become my shelter
And now weíve broken down

We May As Well All Be Strangers

Tonight I feel the stars above me shine
Lying out here on the grass the world is mine
Like so many others before me
The reach of the moon is beyond me
But I donít have to worry
ĎCause I know youíll take care of me

Sharing the bed and the dinner plate
Watching the sunset and staying up late
Making sure that we all are happy
I take care of you and you take care of me

I donít know you, I donít know you well
But I donít really care
Never saw you before last week
But you love me for who I am
And though we all think we know each other
Though we think we could be sister and brother
The whole world around us in danger
We may as well all be strangers

I love sitting in this tiny little kitchen with you
Having a few laughs and knocking back a few
Singing crazy songs and having a good time
You know I love you all as if you were mine
Friends are family and family are friends
I just hope this night never ends

So tonight letís all just stick together
Weíll take care of each other forever

I donít know you, I donít know you well
But I donít really care
Never saw you before last week
But you love me for who I am
And though we all think we know each other
Though we think we could be sister and brother
The whole world around us in danger
We may as well all be strangers

Cheers to us

I donít know you, I donít know you well
But I donít really care
Never saw you before last week
But you love me for who I am
And though we all think we know each other
Though we think we could be sister and brother
The whole world around us in danger
We may as well all be strangers

Butterfly

Take my hand
Blue eyes
You're a cinderella man
Running on empty
Your mother told you
Act right on
As if her loss
Was nothing
You followed her
The seductress with no name
And you knew her hatreds
Piled atop a tower

This is the smoking gun
Crying is mandatory
Look out the window
Reach out and touch the air
Let me breathe upon you

You're all over
You're inconsistent
And you honestly
Don't give see what I see
You watch me
As I hover over you
And you cry even more
I guess it hurts

This is the smoking gun
Crying is mandatory
Look out the window
Reach out and touch the air
Let me breathe upon you

Life is like
A butterfly
Changes right
Before your eyes
The tears you weep
Are nothing more
Than beads on life's fabric

This is the smoking gun
Crying is mandatory
Look out the window
Reach out and touch the air
Let me breathe upon you

Open up
Like butterfly's wings
Flutter
Let yourself feel
Let yourself feel
Let me see you bloom


Getting Through To You

You give me the blues
Criticize when I make a scene
You donít accept my state of mind
You ask me why I never cry
You never hear when I give you my answer
You never listen
And though you say youíve always cared
Your indifference makes you seem cold
Thatís not okay with me
When you just lie over and over

Itís so hard
Getting through to you
When you object
To everything I say and do
You donít respect me
You donít trust me
Youíre always questioning my sanity
And testing it too
Thereís no doubt about it here
No point trying getting through to you

You laugh at my mistakes
Tell me when Iím wrong
You donít let it lie
Now Iím starting to see
What a fool I used to be
Thinking youíd be true to me
Lying here restless and sleepless
Wondering what I should do
Tonightís the night I make my decision
Listen closely itís your last chance

Itís so hard
Getting through to you
When you object
To everything I say and do
You donít respect me
You donít trust me
Youíre always questioning my sanity
And testing it too
Thereís no doubt about it here
No point trying getting through to you

So make up your mind
If you wanna stay or if you wanna go
Iím gonna say the last word on this
Not gonna tell you what you wanna hear

Itís so hard
Getting through to you
When you object
To everything I say and do
You donít respect me
You donít trust me
Youíre always questioning my sanity
And testing it too
Thereís no doubt about it here
No point trying to get through

Itís so hard
Getting through to you
When you object
To everything I say and do
You donít respect me
You donít trust me
Youíre always questioning my sanity
And testing it too
Thereís no doubt it about it here
No point trying getting through to you


I edited them because I tend to swear in my songs, so I hope they sound okay... Thanks in advance for the feedback!!
