When Future Me Meets Present Me

Dear Me,

I know it’s tough because you’ve given all you’ve had and they’ve decided that it isn’t enough. You’ve taken all that you can and in this moment, you feel like breaking. Stay strong as there is lesson in the heartache and power found within the pain. You are who you are and you deserve the type of love you’ve been brave enough to give.

Love,

You.

Live To Tell – Madonna

“Live To Tell”

I have a tale to tell
Sometimes it gets so hard to hide it well
I was not ready for the fall
Too blind to see the writing on the wall

[Chorus:]

A man can tell a thousand lies
I’ve learned my lesson well
Hope I live to tell
The secret I have learned, ’till then
It will burn inside of me

I know where beauty lives
I’ve seen it once, I know the warm she gives
The light that you could never see
It shines inside, you can’t take that from me

[chorus]

[2nd Chorus:]

The truth is never far behind
You kept it hidden well
If I live to tell
The secret I knew then
Will I ever have the chance again

If I ran away, I’d never have the strength
To go very far
How would they hear the beating of my heart
Will it grow cold
The secret that I hide, will I grow old
How will they hear
When will they learn
How will they know

[chorus]
[2nd chorus]

T.O.N.Y. – Solange

T.O.N.Y don’t call no more
No not at all no more
Maybe there’s something wrong with his phone
Or maybe it’s morning and the thrill is gone
I’m not sure if I’m still respected
And I’m not in a rush to feel rejected
Not by T.O.N.Y

T.O.N.Y don’t care no more
He doesn’t want me there no more
I just wanna know what I did wrong
Damn this’ll make a real good song
And I don’t have these nights to often
I wish I could take my mind off it
But I really like T.O.N.Y

And he wasn’t just some regular guy
T.O.N.Y’s actually The Other Night oh whY

I could’ve been in love by now
If it wasn’t for T.O.N.Y
Ooh I could’ve been in love by now
If it wasn’t for T.O.N.y ah

Me and T.O.N.Y don’t speak no more
It’s almost been a weak oh no
My the time it goes so fast
But I still refuse to call his ass
I remember the way that I reacted
And today’s even more attractive
But I really miss T.O.N.Y

But then T.O.N.Y called me one day
He said that he just called to say hey
And it wasn’t until he called me back
That I realized I needed more than that
I’m a lot wiser and a little older
Hey baby it was nice to know ya
Goodbye T.O.N.Y

Still he wasn’t just some regular guy
T.O.N.Y’s actually The Other Night oh whY

I could’ve been in love by now
If it wasn’t for T.O.N.Y (Ooh)
I could’ve been in love by now
If it wasn’t for T.O.N.Y

I don’t go with yesterday no more (Ooh)
Now I’m feeling free (I’m feeling free)
Today tomorrow told me (What it say?)
That’s where I should be (That’s where I should be)

So I’m moving on (I’m moving)
Yes I’m moving on (I’m going, oh, can’t wait forever)
So I’m moving on (I’m going)
Yes I’m moving on (I’m leaving, I miss you baby)

Still he wasn’t just some regular guy
T.O.N.Y’s actually the Other Night Yeah
Yeah if it wasn’t for T.O.N.Y
Ooh could’ve been in love by now
If it wasn’t for T.O.N.Y

After Hours – Adam Lambert

Gotta get out
Gotta get outside
I gotta get outside of my mind
Before I rip it out

I’m on a drive
I’m on a nightdrive
I gotta take a little trip, get twisted
And ride it out

Always after hours
I’m running red lights
Always after hours
Late night, power

I feel it at the wheel
Always after hours
I’m running red lights
Always after hours
Late night, power

I feel it at the wheel
I’m on drive
I’m on a nightdrive
I gotta get take a little trip, get twisted
And ride it out

Always after hours
I’m running red lights
Always after hours
Late night, power

I feel it at the wheel
Always after hours
I’m running red lights
Always after hours
Late night, power

I feel it at the wheel

Try Everything – Shakira

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

I messed up tonight, I lost another fight
I still mess up but I’ll just start again
I keep falling down, I keep on hitting the ground
I always get up now to see what’s next

Birds don’t just fly, they fall down and get up
Nobody learns without getting it wrong

I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
‘Til I reach the end and then I’ll start again
No, I won’t leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail
I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
‘Til I reach the end and then I’ll start again
No, I won’t leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Look how far you’ve come, you filled your heart with love
Baby, you’ve done enough, take a deep breath
Don’t beat yourself up, don’t need to run so fast
Sometimes we come last, but we did our best

I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
‘Til I reach the end and then I’ll start again
No, I won’t leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail
I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
‘Til I reach the end and then I’ll start again
No, I won’t leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail

I’ll keep on making those new mistakes
I’ll keep on making them every day
Those new mistakes

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Try everything

Gateway Drug – Bebe Rexha

You hit me up at 3 A.M. on a Friday night
Say you ain’t feelin’ right
You need to see my face right now
You ain’t over it, just wanna talk a bit

If you wanna talk, let’s talk about the way you left me
Left me with a text so cold (yeah)
Even though I’d die to see you
I don’t trust myself to meet you
‘Cause we both know

That your kiss is a gateway drug
Once you get one, it’s never enough
Your kiss is a gateway drug
Once you get one, it’s never enough
‘Cause

Kissin’ leads to
Touchin’ leads to
Lovin’ leads to
Fuckin’ leads to
Someone always seems to get hurt (yeah)
Kissin’ leads to
Touchin’ leads to
Lovin’ leads to
Fuckin’ leads to
Everythin’ mean nothin’
Your kiss is a gateway drug

You said that you loved me
If you really loved me, why’d you leave me like that
Why’d you go around and talk shit like that
Behind my back, love don’t do shit like that, ooh

If you wanna talk, let’s talk about the way you left me
Left me with a text so cold (mm)
Even though I’d die to see you
I don’t trust myself to meet you

Once you get one, it’s never enough
Your kiss is a gateway drug
Once you get one, it’s never enough

Some Things Never Seem to Fucking Work – Solange

I’ve seen you with the lights off
I’ve seen you and you think you love me
I’ve seen you with your hat off
I’m dreaming of a time you knew me

So baby, is it all you’ve got?
Tell me if you got some more-ore
I’m thinking of some time off, off
I’m dreaming of a time that you knew me

Some things never seem to fucking work

Remember when you kissed me (kissed me)
At Jimmy Jones when I was 17
Convinced myself you were the shit (were the shit)
Convinced myself you love me

So baby, is that all you’ve got?
Tell me if you got some more-ore
I’m thinking of some time off, off
I’m dreaming of a time that you knew me

So maybe then we’re better off
So maybe if it’s all you wanted it
Leave me alone
Leave me alone

So maybe then we’re better off
So maybe if it’s all you wanted it
Leave me alone
Leave me alone

Remember when you missed me (missed me)
We’d accidentally meet purposely
Convinced that we were meant to be (meant to be)
Convinced myself you love me

So baby, is it all you’ve got?
Tell me if you got some more-ore
I’m thinking of some time off (time off, off)
I’m dreaming of a time that you knew me

So maybe then we’re better off
So maybe if it’s all you wanted it
Leave me alone
Leave me alone

So maybe then we’re better off (better off)
So maybe if it’s all you wanted it
Leave me alone
Leave me alone

Some things never seem to fucking work

So tell me, is it real love? Some kind of mistake
They made together that we couldn’t anticipate?
And my attraction to you may bother much worse
But it’s either something maybe
A longing and hattried of myself
But one or two end up alone
So the night I saw you, I could pretend I felt you
You’re beautiful and I felt like everybody saw
But the truth is, so much that I hated your endorsement
Try and deny it, I tried to fight it
But I bought you red color with a 99 buff
Looking for the diamond line to us
But eventually become a asshole
To the others, the group from the outside world
So now I’m calling out for a way
To give myself in
Remember when you kissed me, when I was 17
Your skin so soft and you were the shit
But you loved me

So maybe then we’re better off
So maybe if it’s all you wanted it
Leave me alone
Leave me alone

So maybe then we’re better off (better off)
So maybe if it’s all you wanted it
Leave me alone
Leave me alone

Some things never seem to fucking work
