Life...Plain & Simple.

My name is Jared, I'm 21 and I'm back to square one, but only this time I'm stronger and an even bigger dreamer.

  • Rewriting!

  • Misery Loves My Company

    I am in control
    I haven’t lost my mind
    I am picking up the pieces
    Of the past you left behind

    I don’t need your condescending
    Words about me looking lonely
    I don’t need your arms to hold me
    Cause misery is waiting on me

    I am not alone
    Not beaten down just yet
    I am not afraid
    Of the voices in my head
    Down the darkest road
    Something follows me
    I am not alone
    Cause misery loves my company
    Misery loves my company

    Leave me in the cold
    You better run away
    I’m gonna dig a hole
    And bury all the memories we’ve made

    I don’t need your condescending
    Words about me looking lonely
    I don’t need your arms to hold me
    Cause misery is waiting on me

    I am not alone
    Not beaten down just yet
    I am not afraid
    Of the voices in my head
    Down the darkest road
    Something follows me
    I am not alone
    Cause misery loves my company
    Misery loves my company

    I am not alone
    Not beaten down just yet
    I am not afraid

    Of the voices in my head
    Down the darkest road
    Something follows me
    I am not alone
    Cause misery loves my company
    Misery loves my company
  • Call Me

    Wrap me in a bolt of lightning
    Send me on my way still smiling
    Maybe that’s the way I should go,
    Straight into the mouth of the unknown
    I left the spare key on the table
    Never really thought I’d be able to say
    I merely visit on the weekends
    I lost my whole life and a dear friend

    I’ve said it so many times
    I would change my ways
    No, nevermind
    God knows I’ve tried

    [Chorus]
    Call me a sinner, call me a saint
    Tell me it’s over I’ll still love you the same
    Call me your favorite, call me the worst
    Tell me it’s over I don’t want you to hurt
    It’s all that I can say. So, I’ll be on my way

    I finally put it all together,
    But nothing really lasts forever
    I had to make a choice that was not mine,
    I had to say goodbye for the last time
    I kept my whole life in suitcase,
    Never really stayed in one place
    Maybe that’s the way it should be,
    You know I live my life like a gypsy

    I’ve said it so many times
    I would change my ways
    No, nevermind
    God knows I’ve tried

    [Chorus]
    Call me a sinner, call me a saint
    Tell me it’s over I’ll still love you the same
    Call me your favorite, call me the worst
    Tell me it’s over I don’t want you to hurt
    It’s all that I can say. So, I’ll be on my way

    I’ll always keep you inside, you healed my
    Heart and my life… And you know I try.

    [Chorus]
    Call me a sinner, call me a saint
    Tell me it’s over I’ll still love you the same
    Call me your favorite, call me the worst
    Tell me it’s over I don’t want you to hurt
    It’s all that I can say. So, I’ll be on my way
    So, I’ll be on my way
    So, I’ll be on my way
  • Somewhere I Belong

    (When this began)
    I had nothing to say
    And I get lost in the nothingness inside of me
    (I was confused)
    And I let it all out to find
    That I’m not the only person with these things in mind
    (Inside of me)
    But all that they can see the words revealed
    Is the only real thing that I’ve got left to feel
    (Nothing to lose)
    Just stuck, hollow and alone
    And the fault is my own, and the fault is my own

    [Chorus]
    I wanna heal, I wanna feel what I thought was never real
    I wanna let go of the pain I’ve felt so long
    (Erase all the pain till it’s gone)
    I wanna heal, I wanna feel like I’m close to something real
    I wanna find something I’ve wanted all along
    Somewhere I belong

    And I’ve got nothing to say
    I can’t believe I didn’t fall right down on my face
    (I was confused)
    Looking everywhere only to find
    That it’s not the way I had imagined it all in my mind
    (So what am I)
    What do I have but negativity
    ’Cause I can’t justify the way, everyone is looking at me
    (Nothing to lose)
    Nothing to gain, hollow and alone
    And the fault is my own, and the fault is my own

    [Repeat Chorus]

    I will never know myself until I do this on my own
    And I will never feel anything else, until my wounds are healed
    I will never be anything till I break away from me
    I will break away, I’ll find myself today

    [Repeat Chorus]

    I wanna heal, I wanna feel like I’m somewhere I belong
    I wanna heal, I wanna feel like I’m somewhere I belong
    Somewhere I belong
  • Easier to Run

    It’s easier to run
    Replacing this pain with something numb
    It’s so much easier to go
    Than face all this pain here all alone

    Something has been taken from deep inside of me
    The secret I’ve kept locked away no one can ever see
    Wounds so deep they never show they never go away
    Like moving pictures in my head for years and years they’ve played

    (If I could change I would take back the pain I would)
    (Retrace every wrong move that I made I would)
    (If I could stand up and take the blame I would)
    (If I could take all the shame to the grave I would)
    (If I could change I would take back the pain I would)
    (Retrace every wrong move that I made I would)
    (If I could stand up and take the blame I would)
    (I would take all my shame to the grave)

    [Chorus]
    It’s easier to run
    Replacing this pain with something numb
    It’s so much easier to go
    Than face all this pain here all alone

    Sometimes I remember the darkness of my past
    Bringing back these memories I wish I didn’t have
    Sometimes I think of letting go and never looking back
    And never moving forward so there’d never be a past

    (If I could change I would take back the pain I would)
    (Retrace every wrong move that I made I would)
    (If I could stand up and take the blame I would)
    (If I could take all the shame to the grave I would)
    (If I could change I would take back the pain I would)
    (Retrace every wrong move that I made I would)
    (If I could stand up and take the blame I would)
    (I would take all my shame to the grave)

    Just washing it aside
    All of the helplessness inside
    Pretending I don’t feel misplaced
    It’s so much simpler than change

    [Chorus]
    It’s easier to run
    Replacing this pain with something numb
    It’s so much easier to go
    Than face all this pain here all alone

    It’s easier to run
    (If I could change I would take back the pain I would)
    (Retrace every wrong move that I made)
    It’s easier to go
    (If I could change I would take back the pain I would)
    (Retrace every wrong move that I made I would)
    (If I could stand up and take the blame I would)
    (I would take all my shame to the grave)
  • If You Only Knew

    If you only knew
    I’m hanging by a thread
    The web I spin for you
    If you only knew
    I’d sacrifice my beating
    Heart before I’d lose you
    I still hold onto the letters
    You returned
    I swear I’ve lived and learned

    [Chorus]
    It’s 4:03 and I can’t sleep
    Without you next to me I
    Toss and turn like the sea
    If I drown tonight, bring me
    Back to life
    Breathe your breath in me
    The only thing that I still believe
    In is you, if you only knew

    If you only knew
    How many times I counted
    All the words that went wrong
    If you only knew
    How I refuse to let you go,
    Even when you’re gone
    I don’t regret any days I
    Spent, nights we shared,
    Or letters that I sent

    [Chorus]
    It’s 4:03 and I can’t sleep
    Without you next to me I
    Toss and turn like the sea
    If I drown tonight, bring me
    Back to life
    Breathe your breath in me
    The only thing that I still believe
    In is you, if you only knew
    If you only knew

    If you only knew
    I still hold onto the letters
    You returned
    You help me live and learn

    [Chorus]
    It’s 4:03 and I can’t sleep
    Without you next to me I
    Toss and turn like the sea
    If I drown tonight, bring me
    Back to life
    Breathe your breath in me
    The only thing that I still believe
    In is you, believe in is you
    I still believe in you
    Oh, if you only knew
  • Second Chance

    My eyes are open wide
    And by the way,
    I made it through the day
    I watched the world outside
    By the way,
    I’m leaving out today

    I just saw Halley’s comet
    She waved
    Said, “Why you always running in place?”
    Even the man in the moon disappeared
    Somewhere in the stratosphere

    [Chorus]
    Tell my mother,
    Tell my father
    I’ve done the best I can
    To make them realize
    This is my life
    I hope they understand
    I’m not angry, I’m just saying…
    Sometimes goodbye is a second chance

    Please don’t cry one tear for me
    I’m not afraid
    Of what I have to say
    This is my one and only voice
    So listen close,
    It’s only for today

    I just saw Halley’s comet
    She waved
    Said, “Why you always running in place?”
    Even the man in the moon disappeared
    Somewhere in the stratosphere

    [Chorus]
    Tell my mother,
    Tell my father
    I’ve done the best I can
    To make them realize
    This is my life
    I hope they understand
    I’m not angry, I’m just saying…
    Sometimes goodbye is a second chance

    Here’s my chance
    This is my chance

    Tell my mother,
    Tell my father
    I’ve done the best I can
    To make them realize
    This is my life
    I hope they understand
    I’m not angry, I’m just saying…
    Sometimes goodbye is a second chance

    [2x]
    Sometimes goodbye is a second chance

  • Someone Who Cares

    Every street in this city
    Is the same to me
    Everyone’s got a place to be
    But there’s no room for me
    Am I to blame?
    When the guilt and the shame
    Hang over me
    Like a dark cloud that
    Chases you down
    In the pouring rain

    It’s so hard
    To find someone
    Who cares about you
    But it’s easy enough to find
    Someone who looks down on you
    Why is it so hard
    To find someone
    Who cares about you
    But it’s easy enough to find
    Someone who looks down on you?

    It’s not what it seems
    When you’re not on the scene
    There’s a chill in the air
    But there’s people like me
    That nobody sees
    So nobody cares

    Why is it so hard
    To find someone
    Who cares about you
    When it’s easy enough to find
    Someone who looks down on you?
    Why is it so hard to find
    Someone who can keep it
    Together when you’ve come undone?
    Why is it so hard
    To find someone
    Who cares about you?

    I swear this time
    It won’t turn out the same
    Cause now I’ve
    Got myself to blame
    And you’ll know when we
    End up on the streets
    That it’s easy enough to find
    Someone who looks down on you

    Why is it so hard
    To find someone
    Who cares about you
    When it’s easy enough to find
    Someone who looks down on you?
    Why is it so hard to find
    Someone who can keep it
    Together when you’ve come undone
    Why is it so hard
    To find someone
    Who cares about you?
  • Lyrics Time…

    Time to post some songs that Ive been listening to non stop for a week now…Im slowly breaking into 1000 pieces, every time I build myself back up again, Im blasted with memories and my heart shatters once again.
