A New Home in You

 ©2019Rea

 

You drove across America

Leaving your mama and your papas arms

I came down from Canada

Looking to start a new

The cities big and busy the neighborhood looks pretty

Then I bumped into you

I never knew I’d find a new home in you

 

Fascinated by you cheerful nature

Keeps you grounded where ever you go

Learn to write down my thoughts and feelings

And turn them into a song

You’ve opened my heart you helped me get my stride

Teach me how to be true

I never knew I’d find a new home in you

 

I thought so many times how can someone be so easy to care free

You’ve always given me honesty I have no need for worry

 

Bah dah dah...

 

Spring time flowers blooming softly

Taking our time feeling what right for us

And this pathway that we share is plenty

As we grow more everyday

Whisper your dreams come closer to me

It’s a joy to be with you

I never know I’d find a new home in you

I never know I’d find a new home in you

 

Brown Eyes

 ©2014Rea

 

The morning dew out on the lawn

The wind is whistling through the cracks of the walls

The blankets are rough but they still keep us warm

Roll over and touch and whisper at the dawn

 

Wake up brown eyes

Watch the sunrise

Wake up brown eyes

Did you sleep well last night

 

Da da da…

 

Your skin is smooth pressed against my face

My mind is feeling empty I feel your embrace

Run you fingers through my hair

Eyes are getting heavy as you whisper me a pray

 

Wake up brown eyes

Watch the sunrise

Wake up brown eyes

Did you sleep well last night

 

Hear you call my name

 The dawn the breaking

Waiting for the day

 Its time to wake me

 

Wake up brown eyes

Watch the sunrise

Wake up brown eyes

Did you sleep well last night

Wake up

Brown eyes

Wake up

Brown eyes

 

Oh wake up

Brown eyes

Oh wake up

Brown eyes

 

Call Me

©2018Rea

You gave me your word

But your gone all the time

You said you’d let me know

When you’d be home for a while

 

You made me dine with lies

Just to keep me satisfied

You made me feel alone

Even though you’d say you were mine

 

Why won’t you call me

Why won’t you call me

Why won’t you call me

 

Why won’t you call me

Why won’t you call me

Why won’t you call me

 

You kept me up all night

Waiting for all your tales

Why do you let me down

I forgive you once again

 

Why won’t you call me

Why won’t you call me

Why won’t you call me

 

Why won’t you call me

Why won’t you call me

Why won’t you call me

 

Call me Call me

 

 

Come and Stay

©2012Rea

 

I’m still young

I’d like to get to know

And show you the coolest place in the whole world

Everything you say is so smart

The way you move that's work of art

Walk my way

 

When it’s cold outside

I’ll invite you to stay all night

 

Come and stay where you are welcome

Come and stay where my beds warmer

Come and stay where you are welcome

Please stay please

Come and stay where you are welcome

Come and stay where my beds warmer

Come and stay where you are welcome

Please stay with me

 

I see you all the time wearing just what you like

You always looks so nice

When you catch me staring it so so very scary

And I cannot think of the words to say

 

When it’s cold outside

I’ll invite you to stay all night

 

Come and stay where you are welcome

Come and stay where my beds warmer

Come and stay where you are welcome

Please stay please

Come and stay where you are welcome

Come and stay where my beds warmer

Come and stay where you are welcome

Please stay with me

 

When it’s cold outside

I’ll invite you to stay all night

 

Come and stay where you are welcome

Come and stay where my beds warmer

Come and stay where you are welcome

Please stay please

Come and stay where you are welcome

Come and stay where my beds warmer

Come and stay where you are welcome

Oooo

Come and stay where you are welcome

Come and stay where my beds warmer

Come and stay where you are welcome

Please stay please

Come and stay where you are welcome

Come and stay where my beds warmer

Come and stay where you are welcome

Please stay with me

 

Deep Water

@2018Rea

I’d rather drown then face what’s happening now

Change your mind like the tide you’re in and then you’re out

Tell me who do you choose

Why do I wait for you

It already shows

I already know

 

We are in trouble

Lost in deep water

Sinking to the bottom

Drifting away

We are in trouble

Lost in deep water

Sinking to the bottom

Of deep water

 

Salt from my tears sprinkle on my sleeve

A void in my chest is whirling uncontrollably

Tell me is this for the best

As I float on my back

Does it make it better

Will it get better

 

We are in trouble

Lost in deep water

Sinking to the bottom

Drifting away

We are in trouble

Lost in deep water

Sinking to the bottom

Of deep water

 

Try to stop my racing mind

Cope with its lies

Stay on the surface

Should I trust that you on my side

But is it right

We keep on crashing

 

We are in trouble

Lost in deep water

Sinking to the bottom

Drifting away

We are in trouble

Lost in deep water

Sinking to the bottom

Of deep water

Favourite Company

©2014Rea

 

Walking through the fields of gold

Itchy eyes and itchy nose

We are always running away from everybody

Trains are passing by say hello and then goodbye

Standing closely to your side

In hopes I wont get let behind

 

Open up your eyes

Lets give this a try

I will love you till I die

Who knew we could ever be

Warmer than a cup of tea

You’re my favourite company

Oh oh oh oh

Company

oh oh oh oh oh

Company

 

I wish that the earth could be

Made for only you and me

Never get to settle down

Without hearing those traffic sounds

I would rather be with you sitting in a tree

Laughing endlessly at the song we always sing

 

Open up your eyes

Lets give this a try

I will love you till I die

Who knew we could ever be

Warmer than a cup of tea

You’re my favourite company

Oh oh oh oh

Company

Company

 

Oh oh oh oh

Oh I can’t wait to see you

Oh oh oh oh oh

Who knew we could ever be

Warmer than a cup of tea

You’re my favourite company

Floating

©2012Rea

 

The warm breeze is on my back

The skies so longer grey

I dip my feet into the waters edge

And jump into my brand new day

Feelin’ lucky and I’m feeling good

Never thought that I ever could

Gunna spread my wings and fly

Sing so hard that I could die

 

I am floating by myself

I am floating by myself

I am floating by myself

And I don’t need anybody else

 

Summer only lasts for so long

It’s time to feel it all

Dress me up like I’m in style

Take a photograph and give me smile

 

I am floating by myself

I am floating by myself

I am floating by myself

And I don’t need anybody else

 

Tell myself a good night story

Sent my self off to bed

One day I’ll have all the glory

But for now I’ll waiting

 

I am floating by myself

I am floating by myself

I am floating by myself

And I don’t need anybody else

I am floating by myself

I am floating by myself

I am floating by myself

And I don’t need anybody else

 

Frozen

©2018Rea

 

Let me freeze inside you cold heart

It will be my new found home

Sitting still no blood can pump through your veins

I have claimed you as my own

 

Can you feel your hands and toes

I turn you black and numb

Can you feel your hands and toes

I turn you black and numb

 

Oooo you are frozen

Oooo you are frozen

 

Shielding from the weather I formed

Stronger than you’ll ever know

Feel the curse grab onto your fragile bones

Buried deep in the snow

 

Can you feel your hands and toes

I turn you black and numb

Can you feel your hands and toes

I turn you black and numb

 

Oooo you are frozen

Oooo you are frozen

 

Melting

Watch you melt away

Melting

Watch you melt away

Melting

Watch you melt away

Melting

Watch you melt

 

Can you feel your hands and toes

I turn you black and numb

Can you feel your hands and toes

I turn you black and numb

 

Oooo you are frozen

Oooo you are frozen

 

Green Popsicle

©2012Rea

 

All I wanna do is eat my green popsicle and roll in the tall grass

Laying under trees watch how branches turn to leaves

 

Maybe this time (maybe this time) I can stay in this place Ooo

I don’t want this memory to fade away

 

Drip drip the juices fall on my hands

My popsicles melting

Drip drip I don’t wanna grow up today

All I wanna do is play

 

Whoa whoa…

 

We bought ourselves a pizza pie with dipping sauce on the side

The sun is warm and we’re alive our bellies are filled we’re satisfied

 

Maybe this time (maybe this time) I can stay in this place Ooo

I don’t want this memory to fade away

 

Drip drip the juices fall on my hands

My popsicles melting

Drip drip I don’t wanna grow up today

All I wanna do is play

 

Whoa whoa…

 

Don’t leave I’m not ready to go

But I know that now’s the time for me to live my life

 

Drip drip the juices fall on my hands

My popsicles melting

Drip drip I don’t wanna grow up today

All I wanna do is play

Drip drip the juices fall on my hands

All I wanna do is play

 

 Whoa whoa

My popsicles melting

Whoa whoa

 

 

Gun

©2018Rea

 

Empty are my dreams

You took all form inside of me

Stripped me cleaned let to freeze

I’m cold and solid and feeling the breeze

 

You were the poison I drank to feel sane

But now I’m hung over every day

I can’t recover I’m all shook up

Cuz the damaged you caused just wasn’t enough

 

Don’t come any closer my gun is loaded

This is where we are now oo oo

Fighting this war out oo oo

 

Do your eyes get tired of watching my every move

Pick on me till I’m broken and bruised

You need to know what can’t been seen

Unfaithful thoughts become reality

 

Don’t come any closer my gun is loaded

This is where we are now oo oo

Fighting this war out oo oo

 

Take out your weapons where going down

Take out your weapons where going down

Take out your weapons where going down

Take out your weapons where going down

Take out your weapons where going down

You are what’s killing me were going down

 

Don’t come any closer my gun is loaded

This is where we are now oo oo

Fighting this war out oo oo

Don’t come any closer my gun is loaded

This is where we are now oo oo

Fighting this war out oo oo

 

This is where we are now

This is where we are now

Don’t come any closer my gun is loaded

 

 

Hey You!

©2012Rea

 

Here I am alive and I’m breathing

What more do you want

Cause I’m not changing

You talk to me like I am a child

And yes I know I’m a little bit while but hey

That’s just who I am

 

But you may think you’re so much better than me

And you may think you can make me feel like a freak

 

Hey

Hey you

Don’t talk to me like that

Hey You

Hey you

You make me feel so sad

Hey You

Hey You

I thought we could be friends

(Whoa whoa whoa)

 

Everything I do is always wrong to you

Can you respect me

Don’t you judge please

Stop deciding what I should be

And look here honey you don’t scare me

Hey this is who I am

 

But you may think you’re so much better than me

And you may think you can make me feel like a freak

 

Hey

Hey you

Hey you

Don’t talk to me like that

Hey You

If I Were You

©2014Rea

 

What am I supposed to be

I haven’t even got a dream

If I did would anybody care

 

Sometimes I feel like a ghost

I could be there but nobody knows

It’s the way they star like I’m not here

 

And I do wonder if I should change myself

And I do wonder if things would be better better better

 

If I were you

Would people notice the things I do

Only for a day or two

Life would be a breeze

If I were you

 

There’s nothing left of the day

It's like the minutes run away

Night and day are creeping up on me

 

Trying so hard to be perfect yeah

Tell me is it really worth it

How can I show you I’m good enough

 

And I do wonder if I should change myself

And I do wonder if things would be better better better

 

If I were you

Would people notice the things I do

Only for a day or two

Life would be a breeze

If I were you

 

I could escape

Just for today oh

Let me be you

Let me be you

Let me be you you you

 

If I were you

Would people notice the things I do

Only for a day or two

Life would be easy

Oh

 

If I were you you you

Whoa whoa only for a day or two

Life would be a breeze if I were you

 

 

Nobody to You

©2019Rea

 

Waking up from a bad dream thinking we’re still friends

Big hand still on eight rather stay in bed till later

Why do you haunt me we had no words to disagree on

We were never apart what make you want to cut us in two

 

Nobody in your mind

Nobody to you

I’m paralyzed by the curse I can’t undo

Nobody in your mind

Nobody to you

Twisted on the inside by the curse I can’t undo

Nobody to you

 

Scared of moving to my new home cause we walk the same circles

Lost the ones I know all because I felt more than you could give me

Continue to crumble and wonder what I’ve done wrong please tell me

It’s unfair you left me empty and alone without a care

 

Nobody in your mind

Nobody to you

I’m paralyzed by the curse I can’t undo

Nobody in your mind

Nobody to you

Twisted on the inside by the curse I can’t undo

 

Starting to believe that I crossed to many boundaries

Said you needed time the dialogue went dry

I hope to hear from you again

 

Nobody in your mind

Nobody to you

I’m paralyzed by the curse I can’t undo

Nobody in your mind

Nobody to you

Twisted on the inside by the curse I can’t

Nobody in your mind

Nobody to you

I’m paralyzed by the curse I can’t undo

Nobody in your mind

Nobody to you

Twisted on the inside by the curse I can’t undo

Not Good For Me

©Rea2019

Cigarettes between your fingers

The smell of you lingers

Should of took that chance

When I saw you there that night

Never said my much to you but there’s something there

If you only knew oh God I swear

Dunno how to stop this feeling

You’re not mine for a reason

 

Meet again out body heat

Melds us together

Wishin’ it was me that you would love forever

Flashing lights and the music’s loud

Caught us in a daze and we can’t get out

Don’t cross the line we’ll both regret

You’re not yourself baby go to bed

 

I know that you’re not good for me

But I’ll fall for you anyway

And I know that you’re not good for me

But it’s you I crave

I know that you’re not good for me

But I’ll fall for you anyway, anyway

Gonna fall for you anyway

 

Find it hard to keep myself in check

Warm breathe breathing down my neck

Ignoring all the warnings

I need my fix until the morning

Left with bruises serves me right

Loosing all the people in my life

Don’t put ideas into my head

And then say you forgot the thing you said

I know that you’re not good for me

But I’ll fall for you anyway

And I know that you’re not good for me

But it’s you I crave

I know that you’re not good for me

But I’ll fall for you anyway, anyway

Gonna fall for you anyway

Don’t you know what you’re doin’ to me

You got me goin’ crazy

And I know we will never be

But I will keep on dreaming

Don’t you know what you’re doin’ to me

You got me goin’ crazy

And I know we will never be

But I will keep on dreaming

Ooo

Yeah yeah

 

I know that you’re not good for me

But I’ll fall for you anyway

And I know that you’re not good for me

But it’s you I crave

I know that you’re not good for me

But I’ll fall for you anyway, anyway

Gonna fall for you anyway
 


Raindrops
©2012Rea


A big storm is coming in

Lightening strikes your eyes are wide

Water starts to fill the stream

What does this all mean

 

Raindrops go to sleep

Raindrops on my cheeks

Ooo

Raindrops

Ooo
Never stop
 

Oh oh oh…

 

Hide beneath the covers

We laugh at each other

Small hands and feet are cold

Why do mine seem so old


Raindrops go to sleep

Raindrops on my cheeks

Ooo

Raindrops

Ooo
Never stop

 

And I’m afraid the thunder will wake you

And I’m afraid in time you wont remember

You wont remember

 

Raindrops go to sleep

Raindrops on my cheeks

Ooo

Raindrops

Ooo
Never stop

Raindrops go to sleep

Raindrops on my cheeks

Ooo

Raindrops

Ooo
Never stop


 

Safe and Sound

©2014Rea

 

When I was younger

It was just me and my family

I never needed anybody I was so carefree

And as I grew older made many friend from small places

The world it got colder, put weight on my shoulders.

 

Now I

I lost myself

Oh I

I need your help

 

(do do da do… )

 

 

I am surrounded

By good people with good intensions

But I feel so lonely, their love isn’t enough

They tell me, don’t runaway from all of your problems

Face them head on and they’ll make you stronger

Don’t feel defeated remember that you’re needed

 

Now I

I lost myself

Oh I

I need your help

Ooo Bring me back to who I am

Bring me back to where I stand

Keep me safe and sound

 

Fill my gaps with some love

Keep me safe and sound

Fill my gaps with some love

Keep me safe and sound

 

I now I

I lost myself

Oh I

I need your help. I need your help so

I

I lost myself

Oh I

I need your help

Oh I

I lost myself

Oh I

I need your help. I need your help so

Ooo, Bring me back to who I am

Bring me back to where I stand

Keep me safe and sound

 

 

Shy Girl

She’s driving away window cracked lit cigarette two door Pontiac

Sunburst glazed in a haze blames it on her disease it’s just a phase

Anxiety brings misery drags her to her knees she is hard to please

Needs a dime to blow her mind so nothing to her is real

 

Shy girl she ain’t foolin’ anyone

Goodbye girl she’s dreamin’ now she’s gone oh

Shy girl Shy girl

 

Processed meat is what real men eat her reflection needs their attention

Has her true love but it’s not enough small town girl looking for fun

They say she was a sweet heart in her teenage days

Now she’s older scars on her shoulders

Mothers old fashion father gave lashings another cut to cover up

 

Shy girl she ain’t foolin’ anyone

Goodbye girl she’s dreamin’ now she’s gone oh

Shy girl Shy girl

 

Going in circles no one to save her

Who’s her redeemer heart has a fever

Going in circles digging her own grave

No one to save her somebody save her

Going in circles no one to save her

Who’s her redeemer heart has a fever

Going in circles digging her own grave

No one to save her somebody save her

 

Shy girl she ain’t foolin’ anyone

Goodbye girl she’s leaving now she’s gone oh

Shy girl Shy girl

Win my Heart

I met you while sipping coffee

You told me you knew karate

That’s pretty cool

Why don’t you show me some moves

 

Sit down sweetie take it easy

 Visions kind of getting blurry

Count the fingers you see are their far to many

Take a rest settle down

 

Oh oo oh oo oh oh

You’re fine the way you are

I liked you from the start

Oh oo oh oo oh oh

You’re trying way to hard

Just to win my heart

 

Something tells me you are special

I think we could get a long well

This is so exciting

Get a hold of yourself

 

Walking down the street you see me

Think of some way to impress me

Dig a little deeper I know that you’re eager

Show me your true self

 

Oh oo oh oo oh oh

You’re fine the way you are

I liked you from the start

Oh oo oh oo oh oh

You’re trying way to hard

Just to win my heart

 

You’re putting on a show

And I know that’s not like you

But you oughta to know

That I cannot be fooled by you

Saying oh oo oh oo oh oh

You’re fine the way you are

I liked you from the start

Oh oo oh oo oh oh

You’re trying way to hard

Just to win my heart

 

 

Wonderland

©2019Rea

 

These days I’m unkind to myself

These thoughts have shaken my heart

Blue veins tie me to my bed frame

Vacant stares take up my space

 

My reflection’s static and tired

I’m standing on the filth and glass

How do you be “good to yourself “

If your mind won’t let you rest

 

Take me back

Take me to my wonderland

Oh oh oo oo

Take me back

High above myself

Take me to my wonderland

 

Who’s there for me when I’m lonesome

City lights turned pale and dim

Faces of the ones I am close to

Slowly are starting to change

 

Take me back ooo

Take me back ooo

 

Take me back

Take me to my Wonderland

Oh oh oo oo

Take me back

High above myself

Take me to my Wonderland

Take me back take me back

Take me to my wonderland

Ooo yeah

Take me to my wonderland
