CLOSER TONIGHT

Words & Music by: Elsten C. Torres /Brendan Buckley © for Real/Artificial Music – 2020

 

Verse:

You know that I hate to say goodbye

It always leaves my mouth so dry

Seems every time we slide onto our bed

Yeah the twilight pushes by

 

I realize its selfishness, wishing the world would go away

And leave us here, side by side

 

Chorus:

If you stay closer tonight, tomorrow never has to know

If you stay closer tonight, then baby we can take it slow

If you stay closer tonight, I won’t allow the moon to change its glow

If you stay closer tonight

 

Verse:

Darling I know that we follow our own dreams

And we have to separate

Why does it always have to hurt so bad when you leave me once again

 

Pre:

I recognize that its loneliness, taking the place of this emptiness

Next to me, when you’re gone

 

Chorus:

If you stay closer tonight, tomorrow never has to know

If you stay closer tonight, then baby we can take it slow

If you stay closer tonight, I won’t allow the moon to change its glow

 

Bridge:

So hold me close to you all night long

Don’t let go till we see it’s dawn

Yeah hold me strong, all night long….

 

Chorus:

If you stay closer tonight, tomorrow never has to know

If you stay closer tonight, then baby we can take it slow

If you stay closer tonight, I won’t allow the moon to change its glow

 

 

 

 

WAITING FOR CLOUDS

Words & Music by: Elsten C. Torres/J.A. Zimmon ©for Real/Artificial Music –2020

 

Verse

The sun warms my head but doesn’t reach my heart

The shelter we’ve made, has melted apart

I’m bleeding inside the tears that you shed

They break thru my skin but never leave my bed

Never leave my bed; they never leave my bed 3x

 

Chorus :

It hasn’t rained no nothing comes down

I’ll take the blame that you’re not around

I used you up, I never gave much…. waiting for clouds

 

Verse:

You made it clear that you couldn’t feel (cause)

Love’s not a choice or some crooked deal

I spat on your scars and laughed at your pain

Darling I burn, but it’s cold where I lay

Doesn’t reach my heart….3x

 

Chorus :

It hasn’t rained no nothing comes down

I’ll take the blame that you’re not around

I used you up, I never gave much…. waiting for clouds

 

Bridge : 

Waiting for a cloud, with your ashes on the ground

 

Verse:

The sun warms my head but doesn’t reach my heart

The shelter we’ve made, has melted apart….

 

HALF-HEARTED

Words & Music: Elsten C. Torres-Warner-Chappell © 2020

 

 

Verse:

I can’t tell what time it is,

When the moon is out and the sky is still blue…

I don’t know whose fault it is,

If the sun keeps shining while the rain pours in

And I’ve been here before; I don’t know how to feel…

So I’ll dance this dance alone….

 

Chorus:

Cause I’m Half-Hearted, yes I’m Half-Hearted,

I am Half-Hearted without you…

 

Verse:

I can’t see the road ahead,

Cause the tears I cry last longer than the ones outside

I don’t know what day comes next,

When yesterday seems like all the rest

And I’ve lost my control; I don’t know what is real…

So I’ll dance this dance alone….

 

Chorus:

Cause I’m Half-Hearted, yes I’m Half-Hearted,

I am Half-Hearted without you…

 

Well, I’m Half-Hearted, yes I’m Half-Hearted,

I am Half-Hearted since you’re gone, since you’re gone…

 

I am Half-Hearted, Yes I’m Half-Hearted, I am Half-Hearted since you’re gone..

 

 

I’LL BE GONE

Verse:

You’re gonna love me again when I’m gone

You’re gonna love me again when I’m gone

You’re gonna wake up one rainy day

And wonder why it went this way

You’re gonna love me again when I’m gone

 

Verse:

You’re gonna see the light of your mistake

You’re gonna see the light of your mistake

You’re gonna find out a bit too late

That you messed around and ruined fate

You’re gonna see the light of your mistake

 

Chorus:

Cause when I’m gone, I’ll be gone

Yes when I’m gone, I’ll be gone

When I’m gone, I’ll be gone

And you won’t be able to repeat my name


Bridge

I’ll be Gone…La la la la…la la…la la…la da la da la

 

Verse:

You’re gonna love me again when I’m gone

You’re gonna love me again when I’m gone

You’re gonna wake up on New Year’s day

And look around to see what you’ve made

You’re gonna love me again when I’m gone

 

Chorus:

Cause when I’m gone, I’ll be gone

Yes when I’m gone, I’ll be gone

When I’m gone, I’ll be gone

And you won’t be able to repeat my name


Bridge

I’ll be Gone…La la la la…la la…la la…la da la da la

 

GIRL

Words & Music by: Elsten C. Torres/J.A. Zimmon/Aaron Fishbein© 2020 Real/Artificial Music

 

Verse:

Kaleidoscope leaves surrounding her tree

Some are brown some are red some never change

Continually they color every single mood that she makes

In her little world of fairy tales and possibilities

Pre:

Autumn never gives in, till winter covers her skin

 

Chorus:

Girl…beautiful, sun shining Girl…Girl…let true love be your destiny

 

Verse:

Wandering dreams on the walls of her room

And though some are big, some are small some seem the same

Apparently she knows exactly what she doesn’t want to reveal

Cause indifference, just becomes, something too real

Pre:

Sadness doesn’t have time, in her veiled but innocent eyes
