Lyrics to "Paralyzed By This"

Verse

You say we’re close

But I’m scared

Because I’m taken so far

Does not mean 

I’m safely cemented to this


Chorus

I get so serious

Thinking this is love

Am I going too far


Paralyzed by this…...


Verse

Please don’t turn off

By my scary fright

That I feel so soon

Afterwards this night


Chorus

I get so serious

Thinking this is love

Am I going too far


Paralyzed by this…...


Verse

I feel the fear

Creeping up in my face

All I want to hear

Is you’re not like what I imagine 



I try to tell you

I’m fragile

I’m not dealing

On solid ground


I'm frozen in anxiety…..


Chorus

I get so serious

Thinking this is love

Am I going too far


I never felt this before

You controlling my body

One minute I’m there

Next I blackout into you


Chorus

I get so serious

Thinking this is love

Am I going too far

Paralyzed by this


New Lyrics to "A Dream" (I'm still tinkering with this)

A Dream #rewritten #love #importance #happiness #life

I listened to Ed Sheeran tonight on Pandora Live and I learned it's the happy songs people long for and are the hardest to write. I emphasized this more on love and happiness. I've been working on it in a Nina Simone tone.

A Dream Lyrics

Verse

I thought to be a princess

Live in a fine white house

On a hill

Have my own island


Chorus

I thought I had a dream

But I didn't know what one was

Until I had you

When I had already lost one


Verse

The silver and gold sparkle became a blur

Lights, camera, fashion

Became last in my mind

All I could think was love

The most important


Chorus


Verse

The warmth

The touch

The closeness

Is all that I dream of now


Bridge

It's a feeling I want 

Of belonging 

Importance, existence



No dreams

on my mind now

I didn't know what one was


Chorus

I thought I had a dream

But I found I didn't know 

What one was 

until I had you



A dream


Oooo


Oooo

Repeat
