"Giving Yourself Away" as written by and Tarcy Devin/calloway Thomason....
it happens again,
you're afraid to open up or just give in
'cause someone's gonna hurt you like you've been
in the past
healed wounds meet broken glass, now you're jaded
but please don't fade away

if you only knew how much you made me feel alive

where do we go?
how do we find ourselves when this world brings so much pain?
and how do we cope with the things we hate?
the things that made us feel this way

oh girl, can't you see the affect you have on me?
and i'm not the only one
you stay inside try to hide just deny
those who just want to make you smile

if you only knew how much you made me feel alive

where do we go?
how do we find ourselves when this world brings so much pain?
and how do we cope with the things we hate?
the things that made us feel this way

how do we know?
when it's alright to take the jump and not look back
we may never know,
that's what makes this life worth living
taking chances, loving, giving yourself away

and no, woah
i can't stand this to see this state you're in

and oh, no
i want to make your fears all go away
'cause you make me weak every single day

where do we go?
how do we find ourselves when this world brings so much pain?
and how do we cope with the things we hate?
the things that made us feel this way

how do we know?
when it's alright to take the jump and not look back
we may never know,
that's what makes this life worth living
taking chances, loving, giving yourself away

giving yourself away

    General Commentalrighty, so this is what I hear:

    It happened again.
    You're afraid to open up or just give in
    'Cause someone's gonna hurt you
    Like you've been in the past
    Heal the wounds, be broken glass,
    Now you're jaded, but please don't fade away.

    If you only knew how much you made me feel alive.

    Where do we go?
    How do we find ourselves
    When this world brings so much pain?
    And how do we cope with the things we hate?
    (The things that made us feel this way)

    Oh girl, can't you see
    The effect you have on me?
    And I'm not the only one...
    You stay inside, try to hide, just deny
    Those who just want to make you smile.

    If you only knew how much you made me feel alive.

    Where do we go?
    How do we find ourselves
    When this world brings so much pain?
    And how do we cope with the things we hate?
    (The things that made us feel this way)

    How do we know when it's alright to take
    The jump and not look back?
    We may never know,
    That's what makes this life worth living:
    Taking chances, loving, giving yourself away.

    And whoa, whoa-oh
    I can't stand to see this state you're in.
    And oh, no
    I want to make your fears all go away
    'Cause you make me weak every single day.

    Where do we go?
    How do we find ourselves
    When this world brings so much pain?
    And how do we cope with the things we hate?
    (The things that made us feel this way)

    How do we know when it's alright to take
    The jump and not look back?
    We may never know,
    That's what makes this life worth living:
    Taking chances, loving, giving yourself away,
    Giving yourself away.
