"Maybe" as written by Kelly Brianne Clarkson, Aben Eubanks and Jimmy Messer....
I'm strong
But I break
I'm stubborn
And I make plenty of mistakes
Yeah I'm hard
And life with me is never easy
To figure out, to love
I'm jaded but oh so lovely
All you have to do is hold me
And you'll know and you'll see just how sweet it can be
If you'll trust me, love me, let me
Maybe, maybe

Someday
When we're at the same place
When we're on the same road
When it's OK to hold my hand
Without feeling lost
Without all the excuses
When it's just because you love me, you let me, you need me
Then maybe, maybe
All you have to do is hold me
And you'll know and you'll see just how sweet it can be
If you'll trust me, love me, let me
Maybe, maybe

I'm confusing as hell
I'm north and south
And I'll probably never have it all figured out
But what I know is I wasn't meant to walk this world without you
And I promise I'll try
Yeah I'm gonna try to give you every little part of me
Every single detail you missed with your eyes
Then maybe
Maybe, yeah maybe
Yeah maybe
Maybe, yeah maybe, maybe

One day
We'll meet again and you'll need me, you'll see me completely
Every little bit
Oh yeah maybe you'll love me, you'll love me then

I don't want to be tough
And I don't want to be proud
I don't need to be fixed and I certainly don't need to be found
I'm not lost
I need to be loved
I just need to be loved
I just want to be loved by you and I won't stop 'cause I believe
That maybe, yeah maybe
Maybe, yeah maybe
Maybe, maybe

I should know better than to touch the fire twice
But I'm thinking maybe, yeah maybe you might

Maybe, love maybe

    General CommentAmazing song. I love this:

    "I don't want to be tough,
    and I don't wanna be proud.
    I don't need to be fixed and I certainly don't need to be found."

    General Comment"Someday when we're at the same place,
    when we're on the same road,
    when it's okay to hold my hand without feeling lost.
    Well I know all the excuses,
    when it's just because"

    I think the whole song is pretty self-explanitory though.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this is about her relationship with graham Colton. They broke up because he was going into the studio and she was touring, but they're still really good friends. Love this song,

    General CommentThis song is absolutely amazing. Such a wonderful lyric and her voice is just vulnerable enough to make you empathize with her.

    General CommentOne of the best songs on my December. It's amazing and very emotional. I can relate to the lyrics well. I'm so pround of Kelly for writing this song, and this whole album along with it.
