So now, here we are tonight Caught you right in my line of sight You know, I think I’ve kinda seen you around Do you like this party? I don’t, but if you stay with me Let’s just waste some time hanging around Free and innocent, we never have to try I don’t want to say goodbye CHORUS: Under the stars let’s go out just the two of us Under the night sky we’ll stay ‘til the sun comes up Having the time of our lives Could we just let out everything? I won’t judge or anything I just want to know the person you are Don’t feel like you have to hide So hard to keep it all inside Relax, I think you’re pretty awesome so far Ooh, now I’m feeling like I’ve met my new best friend And I never want this night to end CHORUS I still don’t want to go home I wanna watch the sky with you So come on darling Look at all the stars tonight CHORUS And I had the time of my life
Beautiful 03:26
Hey now I'm standing on my own two feet In complete control and I just love this feeling I've got a new beginning, a life with meaning And not a bit involves you at all I'm over it now Letting it go Moved on somehow and Letting you know Maybe I didn't get what I wanted I got something better instead CHORUS: I'm beautiful In ways you'll never know I'm beautiful In ways you'll never see But this is not A tragedy 'Cause it's your loss And that's fine with me Hey now, I'm staring at a bright new morning I feel fantastic and my heart is soaring What, are you surprised? Think it's a new disguise? I didn't realize just how much you despised me Oh, listen to you Putting me down I see what you're doing It won't matter now Tell me what you think but you won't bring me down again I'm finally free, finally free CHORUS Hey now, I'm doing just fine And don't you worry 'bout this heart of mine Hey now, what did you say? Better stop that talk I'm doing things my way now Hey now, what do you see? 'Cause I don't think you will ever know the real me Baby look what you're missing I walked out while you weren't listening Last Chorus: I'm beautiful In ways you'll never know I'm beautiful In ways you'll never see You'll never know Too blind to see That it's your fault That you lost me Hey now I'm standing on my own two feet In complete control and I just love this feeling I've got a new beginning, a life with meaning And I'm believing The sun is gleaming
Poolside 04:11
It was four years ago When I met you on a warm summer night So much I didn’t know There was someone else I thought would be mine I tried to be cold And I played it all wrong ‘Cause I gave up before I even began So afraid to find out I don’t get to decide Can we go back to that night, poolside? I’ll tell you everything I should have said back then Do you think that sometimes What’s supposed to happen never happens at all? When we were poolside Oh, I try to let go But I’m fighting against scenes that play out in my sleep That lure me to stay Even though I know the memories aren’t mine to keep Of the way it could be Just simple and clean And reaching out didn’t mean losing anything The visions dissolve I can’t escape now Can we go back to that night, poolside? Barely an inch between your fingers and mine Then I look in your eyes Wordlessly, I tell you all that you need to know Oh, tell me you know If I could rewrite history I’d tell you what you mean to me But no, this can’t be happening It’s not my right to break this ring How could I let this get so bad When what I lost I never had? It’s taking all the strength I have To not go back to that night Poolside When for one moment I was special to you But that’s all it was Sometimes all we get is just that one night When we were poolside
