"Forgetting the Words" #newlyrics #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter

 I found this neat where I was having a hard time getting the peace needed to write, this is what came out. Hoping my son will come up with a photo for this for my podcast on this song.




Verse

I’m thinking happiness and sad

both close together

I’m confused

I know not to tire

I’m trying to see where I am


It moves when I try to imagine what it is

Sadly enough, I don’t know when it’s coming back

My sight sees it perfectly outlined

though I can’t perfectly define it

I can still verbalize it out loud


Chorus

it will all come to me

don’t worry everyday

just because I keep

forgetting the words I want to say



Verse

It’s perfectly outlined and black

though not the deepest in its fullest

almost like a shadow 


I see the silhouette


I know not to tire

though It moves when I try to imagine what it is

Sadly enough, I don’t know 

when it’s coming back


Chorus

it will all come to me

don’t worry everyday

just because I keep

forgetting the words I want to say


I’m not crazy

though it looks like I am

I work everyday

to camouflage the vision

Don’t judge me

If I see myself this way


I know I’m not the only one

who has problems

all at the same time

just give me a chance


to show you I can be like you



Chorus

it will all come to me

don’t worry everyday

just because I keep

forgetting the words I want to say


oooo oooo oooo oooo oooo ooooo


ooooo oooo ooooooooooooooot

My Son's Photo for Lost In a "Sea of Darkness " #lorijeanfinnila #topchartssong #singersongwriter

This photo my son took helped to inspire this song.


Verse
I come out with the way you don’t want to hear it
I’m talking again the way it’s not popular
when will I learn

Chorus
I’m lost in a sea of darkness
I can’t find my way to normalness
where is it that I can’t find to be

Verse
I’m flying I’m floating alone
in a sea of darkness
I can’t find my home
I think I’ll rest in peace alone

Chorus
I’m lost in a sea of darkness
I can’t find my way to normalness
where is it
that I can’t find to be

Verse
I think I’ve found a new way
I feel I’m opening up again
I feel the connecting
I know I’m on the right path
just to fall again

Perhaps I’m not so wrong
just born in a world not made for myself
where I can walk in a dimension and feel
comfortable on my own

if it were only safe

Chorus
I’m lost in a sea of darkness
I can’t find my way to normalness
where is it that I can’t find to be

lost in a sea of darkness
repeat

oooo oooo
ooooooooo

repeat

"I'm Lyin' Up All Night" #newsong #EP #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter




Photo by Aleksandar Pasaric


Verse

Hate you the more I think of you

I want you the more that I think of you

You think this is the way to control

I’ll fight and hurt inside

before I give into you


I lay up all night 

telling myself

I can do this

I can fly by this pain

I won’t crawl or beg

to make you understand


Chorus

I’m laying up all night again

I know I’m right

you’ve been wrong again

you can’t keep treating me this way

I won’t give you my love the right way


Verse

I know I’ve been lovable

you can’t see this

you want to control me

I can’t deal with this

 why can’t you just 

love me the way I am


Chorus


Verse

You want me to be the way that you want

I’ve never been able to do this

I only know how to be myself


How can I marry and be your queen

when you won’t let your princess beam

to lightest and darkest moments with you

I just want to touch you…..


oooo…. oooo… ooooo…..


repeat

Ok One More "I Could Part the Seas" #newsong #chances #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter





I Could Part the Seas


Verse

Why can’t someone understand me

all I’m trying to do is the right thing

I’m solemn in my thoughts

I’m clean in my motions


Chorus

If you gave me the chance

I could part the seas

that you could walk right through

AllI need is for you to give me a chance


Verse

I’m so strong 

when you’re beside me

but then you leave

I don’t know where I am

How can I be so helpless

and so strong at the same time


I’m seeing clear again now that you’re near me

but you get mad when I feel this way

why can’t I be the same things to you

both at the same time


Chorus


Verse

I’m not so bad

as you might think

I adore your face

and how you make me flush

My cheeks and my insides

jump around you


I know you want to have fun too

but you worry 

that’s not all that’s involved with this

why do you have to worry so much


Chorus

If you gave me the chance

I could part the seas

that you could walk right through

AllI need is for you to give me a chance
