curtis-krumm Never Meant to Hurt You, because I like the chord progression, the guitars are both great... Though Green Eyes, Burn Like The Sun & Crazy Wasting are really good songs too! Favorite track: Never Meant To Hurt You.

Damn boy you look so good But I can’t have you around Gotta keep a distance cause my feet Don’t touch the ground anymore Pretty boy you are no good No you are not allowed Have to stay away from you Cause I’m about to drown In your green eyes Damn boy you got some moves And boy I like your style So I’m trying to figure out What it takes to make you mine When I think I’m getting there When I think I found a way I can see you smiling and I’m trying not to get lost In your green eyes Oh in your green eyes Oh in your green eyes So next time I see you again Imma have to stand my ground Don’t want any more distraction Have to be aware now Next time I see you again, I will undertake I am gonna stop you before I fall into I am gonna stop you before I fall into Your green eyes Oh your green eyes Oh your green eyes Your green eyes I am gonna stop you before I fall into I am gonna stop you

You take me out to dinner You’re paying for my drinks I return the favor Because I really think That I should get to know you We’re always having fun But I can’t get too close to you Cause you burn like the sun You burn like the sun And though your light is blinding To me it’s crystal clear I think you’re just hiding From the clouds that might appear I promise I’ll be with you I promise I won’t run But I can’t get too close to you Cause you burn like the sun You are like the sun Don’t get too close to me You’re burning my skin Desire tempting me You are making me sin Don’t get too close to me You’re burning my skin Oh no, oh no, no I’m giving in So now I am just waiting Waiting for a call Maybe we can meet up And have ourselves a ball Spend more time together But in the end we will have none But I can’t get too close to you Cause you burn like the sun Don’t get too close to me You’re burning my skin Desire tempting me You are making me sin Don’t get too close to me You’re burning my skin Oh no, oh no, no I’m giving in Don’t get too close to me (you are like the sun) This is confusing me (you are like the sun) Desire tempting me (you are like the sun) Oh you gotta be kidding me Burn like the sun Burn like the sun Burn like the sun

You’ve been holding back for a while now You are tired of being told what to do But you never said what was on your mind Cause people would always speak for you So you finally start a rebellion Yeah you finally stand up for yourself But the pressure you’re under is taking its toll And you don’t realize you need help you need help Ooh holding on to a memory Ooh but still looking forward Ooh standing on a bridge of uncertainty Ooh afraid to cross over Look at what you have become now You try to undo your mistakes If only you were able to turn back time But you know well enough it’s too late It’s too late, it’s too late, It’s too late Ooh holding on to a memory Ooh but still looking forward Ooh standing on a bridge of uncertainty Ooh afraid to cross over Afraid to cross over Afraid to cross over Afraid to cross over Afraid to cross over Ooh holding on to a memory Ooh but still looking forward Ooh standing on a bridge of uncertainty Ooh afraid to cross over Afraid to cross over

I follow you around to all these places And it sure wears me out, don’t know what else to do When I ask you why, there’s no real answer It only takes your smile for me to continue I do it all for you, do you realize I do it all for you, please don’t ask me why I need something else, need something different Like somebody else but I want only you I follow you around to all these places But what I’m trying to find I cannot find with you I do it all for you, I hope you realize I do it all for you, please don’t ask me why Even though I have my doubts, you always make me shine If my efforts go to waste, I don’t mind I do it all for you, I hope you realize I do it all for you, no need to ask me why I do it all for you I do it all for you No need to ask me why

I know that we mean really well But up to now we didn’t know how we could tell That we don’t really want the same And now we are just looking for someone to blame Goodbye You never really listened or maybe I didn’t really care Of course I’m gonna miss you but the fire isn’t there You never really listened or maybe I didn’t really care Of course I’m gonna miss you but the fire isn’t there There is nothing left to say I’m sure we’ll meet again along the way Please just try to understand The road was long but now it has come to an end Goodbye Goodbye You never really listened or maybe I didn’t really care Of course I’m gonna miss you but the fire isn’t there You never really listened or maybe I didn’t really care Of course I’m gonna miss you but the fire isn’t there I know that we mean really well But up to now we didn’t know how we could tell That we don’t really want the same And now we are just looking for someone to blame There is nothing left to say I’m sure we’ll meet again along the way Please just try to understand The road was long but now it has come to an end

So many things we haven’t told you So many things we’ll never get to say So many things we’d like to ask you But It’s too late anyway Now you’re gone You decided to leave us But now you’re gone With a smile on the surface Did you forget to wake up that night Did you forget to breathe Were you curious about the other side Did you really have to leave Now you’re gone You decided to leave us But now you’re gone With a smile on the surface You could at least have said goodbye You could at least have told us why You could at least have said goodbye There was no need for you to lie Now you’re gone You decided to leave us But now you’re gone With a smile on the surface Now you’re gone You decided to leave us But now you’re gone With a smile on the surface

You don’t want to talk to me I never meant to upset you It hurts when you’re ignoring me I am obliged to ask you To forgive to forget All the things I said All the things I have done Bad choices I made And so many mistakes I know I’ve done wrong But I never meant to hurt you Never meant to hurt you Disappointment in your eyes You seem to look right through me Your silence makes me deaf I can’t hear anything, I can’t hear anything I am obliged to ask you To forgive to forget All the things I said All the things I have done Bad choices I made And so many mistakes I know I’ve done wrong But I never meant to hurt you Never meant to hurt you Never meant to hurt you

No one can see that she’s an angel Only one dream, trying hard to make it real Before the wolves take it, the wolves know it Very determined, not afraid to start a fight A road full of dangers, a road so unpredictable Oh keep walking, keep walking girl When your feet can’t take the distance It’s time to spread your wings Forget about your frustrations and fly Her shoes are slowly wearing out She doesn’t really mind Cause her shoes don’t do the walking It’s the ambition inside Keep walking girl, oh keep walking girl When your feet can’t take the distance It’s time to spread your wings Forget about your frustrations and fly Oh don’t worry ‘bout falling Oh gravity won’t take you down Keep walking girl Keep walking girl Keep walking girl Keep walking girl When your feet can’t take the distance It’s time to spread your wings Forget about your frustrations and fly

If you think you can put me down And that you can control me I will show you what I can I’ll show you who I can be Don’t you order me around I’ll do what makes me happy You can talk behind my back But I won’t let you get me And it’s time for me to change Got some things to do Gotta get myself together I can’t believe I tried so hard to give you satisfaction I didn’t dare to say a thing afraid of your reaction Now I want to scream out loud I want to make a difference I’m gonna start over again I’m gonna take my chance And it’s time for me to change Got some things to do Gotta get myself together I’m making making my own decisions I’m making making And it’s time for me to change And it’s time for me to change And it’s time for me to change And it’s time for me to change I’m waiting waiting For the right time and place Ooh so I’m changing changing Changing

Starting out with nothing Slowly building up We just keep on trying Making our own luck Making something out of nothing Bricks are piling up We will keep on climbing But if we should get stuck We hope it works out Oh hope it works out No need to understand us No need to make remarks No need to hear us out Just give us some credit We’re only looking for our sound It works out Oh it works out Oh it works out Oh it works out If something bad should happen If something bad occurs Oh we will keep on going A little rain doesn’t hurt If something bad should happen If something bad occurs Oh we will keep on going A little rain doesn’t hurt Oh it works out oh Oh it works out oh
