Once upon a time there was me
Not such a bad place for you to be
Despite everything you say now I know
Once upon a time there was me and you
So long it was more like you you you
But we woke up in to that right now
Had to choose my battles
So I leaving soon
I’m off to meet my lonely fate
But before I’m stuck out in the cold
I think you’d kill me if you told me I’m great

Cause you know you’ve bowled your strike with me
But I won’t be gone till you pick up your spare
Make it right
Cause the way you look right now
I’m thinking that maybe
I might never see you again

No No No No
Can’t dwell on this for long
Cause someone told me that your just song
And I’m sick of music
So could you turn it down now
Hey Hey
Nothing’s outside when it’s waiting there for you
Ding Dong we need an answer
I’ve already shown you the right way
So the party’s over
Clean your room and you clean your plate
I want you
Go

You know you’ve bowled your strike with me
But I won’t be gone till you pick up your spare
Make it right
Cause the way you look right now
I’m thinking that maybe
I might never see you again

Cause there’s a right way to do this for me
Oh but what can I do if it’s not the right way for you


Please right this wrong
Please right this wrong
So I can sing another song
Please tell me
Please tell me
Please tell me
I’m great

Cause you know you’ve bowled your strike with me
But I won’t be gone till you pick up your spare
Make it right
Cause the way you look right now
I’m thinking that maybe
I might never see you again
No No No No
Please make this right
Just say goodbye
Please make this right

    General Comment"But we woke up into that right now" should be "Be we won't go into that right now."

    "I want you" should be "well on cue"

    Lyric Correction"But we woke up in to that right now, Had to choose my battles" should be "we wont go into that fight now, I have to choose my battles"

    "I think you'd kill me if you told me I'm great" should be "Think it'd kill you if you told me I'm great?"

    "Nothing's outside when it's waiting there for you" should be "Nothing's outside and he's waiting for there you"

    "Clean your room and you clean your plate, I want you" should be "I've cleaned your room and you've cleaned your plate, right on cue" or even "we're on cue" but "I want you" is definitely not it.

    good job otherwise.
