Official Lyrics to Stephanie's Songs

Your Voice, My Angel

Don't leave me now,
Because there's so much you still have to see.
You showed me how
To believe in things to make them real.
But those days went so fast now the years they grow cold.
All I want is one last chance to know...

Don't wake me now,
Because I'm broken when I know you're gone.
I don't know how
You could shatter when you were so strong,
But those years went so fast now the days they grow cold,
But I feel you at last when I know

I'll be your voice when the world screams for you.
I'll bring you home each time I face the truth.
Make me your vessel because yours was gone too soon.
You'll be my angel until I can go with you. 

Don't wake me now,
Because I'm dreaming that you are still here.
I need to know 
Only one way to make you appear.
And with each day that goes by you will slowly be mine.
And I feel you at last every time.

I'll be your voice when the world screams for you.
I'll bring you home each time I face the truth.
Make me your vessel because yours was gone too soon.
You'll be my angel until I can go with you.

Run The Way

You're always moving mountains.
You're always taken for granted.
You run from time wasted.
Won't get close enough to taste it.

You dig yourself so deep the walls are caving in and you see
Only the mess you made. You run to break away from it but
I'll be the one to hold your hand and end this cycle
I will pull you up.

You don't have to run away.
You don't have to run from me.
I'll embrace every single part of you.
You don't have to run the way
You used to.

If it's a little darker here,
I'll feed off of all your nightmares.
Your smile drives away my every fear.
I've always craved your danger.

I'll show you how to find your light inside this darkness. You can
Let all your demons out and I will help you fight them. I'll be
More than a memory. Forever we will have each other 
Here to stay.

You don't have to run away.
You don't have to run from me.
There's a way to embrace this darkness too.
You don't have to run the way
You used to.

So set yourself free.

You don't have to run away.
You don't have to run from me
I'm the one you can always run to.
You don't have to run the way
You used to.

Fragile

It's delicate,
Fragile as a flower,
And I don't know if I can keep it.
But every time 
I feel I've lost all power
That's when you kiss me so sweetly.
And I begin to believe in love again.
I feel so nervous just to say it
But you've got my hopes up and praying.

You catch me by surprise.
I didn't know 
I could feel this way anymore.
And you lose me in your eyes.
I know it's love and with you I feel it more 
Than ever before.

I celebrate 
Every moment that I'm with you.
Sometimes I wonder why you keep me.
But when you call my name in your way
I can tell that you need me.
And I begin to believe in love again.
I feel like my heart's done with aching 
But if it's not, you're worth it breaking.

You catch me by surprise.
I didn't know I could feel this way anymore.
And you lose me in those eyes.
I know it's love, and with you I feel it more
Than ever before.

And I've had my heart broken before
So right now I'm more scared to fail than ever.
But though I feel so fragile right now
You're worth the smallest hope of forever.

Love is delicate,
Fragile as a flower,
And I don't know if I can keep it.
But you're so strong and your light leads me on.
You're the one I can believe in 
And I begin to believe in love again.
I begin to believe in love again.
I begin to believe in love again.
I begin to believe in love.

Sweet Sweet Baby 

Verse:
You're my sunshine in the morning 
And I wake up with a smile because of you.
And my life is so delicious
'Cuz you fill it with the sweet sweet things you do.
The world must be small to fit inside your hands.
My heart has grown big.

Chorus:
I love you 'cuz no two days are the same,
And you're the one I crave.
I gotta have your flavor of the day.
It's wild, but it's mine.
I know I can't stop time,
So every minute I need a taste of my
Sweet, sweet baby.
My Sweet, sweet baby.
You're my sweet, sweet baby.
I need you, I need you 
And the sweet things you do.

Verse 2:
If your kisses were all gumdrops 
Then by now I would be fatter than a king.
It's amazing how such simple love 
Can make me see the good in everything.
The world must be small to fit inside your hands.
My heart has grown big.

Chorus 2:
I love you 'cuz no two days are the same,
And you're the one I crave.
I gotta have your flavor of the day.
It's wild, but it's mine.
I know I can't stop time,
So every minute I need a taste of my 
Sweet, sweet baby.
My Sweet, sweet baby.
You're my sweet, sweet baby.
I need you, I need you
And the sweet, sweet things you do.

Bridge:
So take me now 
Into your Candyland.
Get me high
On things I don't understand.
When will I 
Be as free as you?
I can only try
To hold on to my
Sweet, sweet baby.
My sweet, sweet baby.
You're my sweet, sweet baby.
I need you, I need you
And the sweet, sweet, sweet 
Things you do.

Bring You Back
Each day is a chance to move on.
So I take a step before I melt in these tears. 
How could you leave me here alone
With endless memories of all of these years?
Though I've learned to believe I will see you again
I can't bring you back to right now.
And since no one likes weakness I hide all this pain, 
But you haunt me unexpectedly.
I break down over little things I see.

And I can't bring you back.
I hate these memories.
If I can't bring you back
I'll push you far from me,
Push you far from me.

I need to learn to let it out
So I can keep you by my side and set myself free.
And isn't that what love is all about?
Losing my pride no matter what they may think.
So with the smell of lilacs and the sound of the rain
I can bring you back to right now.
If I crush all my weakness I'll lose you again.
So I'll do what you always taught to me,
And find you in the little things I see.

And I will bring you back
With all these memories.
If I can bring you back,
I'll keep you close to me,
Keep you close to me.

I never like to cry.
Don't wanna let them see me cry,
But I need you here more.
I can see your soul shine,
Your voice is heard through mine.
No, you can't hide,
Even from the other side.

And I will bring you back
With all these memories.
If I can bring you back,
I'll keep you close to me.

No Retreat
I'm laying down for the slaughter.
I will face my fears.
There are a thousand ways around this
That I'd regret for years.
I can't hide anymore.
Won't stay inside these intricate cages.
This is worth fighting for,
So much in me that I can't contain it.

Flying into the sun,
March to the scaffold,
I've finally overcome so I'll fight for what I love.
No retreat.

There's a whole new sense of freedom
When I shed my mask.
I feel my heart beating faster,
But I'm alive at last.
I can't hide anymore.
Won't stay inside these intricate cages.
This is worth fighting for,
And if they shoot me down I will take it.

Flying into the sun,
March to the scaffold,
I've finally overcome so I'll fight for what I love.
No retreat.

Let me speak. 
I will be my own hero this time.
No longer afraid
Of the things I am leaving behind. 

Flying into the sun,
March to the scaffold,
I've finally overcome so I'll fight for what I love.
I'm fighting for me.
No retreat.

Becky's Song
I want to believe everything you say
And be happy for your fate.
But I cry for every step you take
Away from your faith.

And I watch you stumble and fall,
But if you let me I'll be with you 
Until you stand tall.

You hold the key to end this hurt
And I try to speak but my words just don't work.
And you don't know how much you're really worth
But I know the cure.

And I watch you stumble and fall,
But if you let me I can show you 
How to stand tall.

You say it's hard to trust in things
You never really knew.
But spread your wings
And see what you can do.
And if you fall, broken and bruised,
I'll carry you.

It's ok if you stumble and fall.
There's a way to make it through it all.
And you deserve to come out standing tall.
And if you let me,
I'll be with you
Through it all.
