Make Me a Beauty/Make Me Yours

Updated on March 29, 2015

Make Me a Beauty

Trap me.
Claim me.
Tame me.
Make me a beauty.

Don't break me.
Shame me.
Name me.
Make me a beauty.

My love won't let you go.
I move real slow,
it brings me hope.
I'm the lump in your throat,
your Christmas coal,
on the nerves of your soul.
Please make us whole.

Don't let me go.
Grab me.
Stab me.
Tell me I make you happy.

Don't calm down.
Play around.
Let's have fun now.

I don't want romance.
I'd like a chance,
a fighting chance.
Bring peace to me.

Don't blame me.
Name me
I'm your lady, love.

I'm wild,
wilder than a flame
and hot like the same.

I need this!
I need this!
I need this!

I need the core of you.
The red, gray, black,
and the blue.
I need the truth,
show it in the way you move.

Trap me.
Claim me.
Name me anything but crazy.
Don't forsake me shake me.
Make me a beauty.

Flipping Pages

I'm just flipping my pages.
I pray this isn't another one of my phases.
I'm way too comfortable in this.
I want it to follow me
through all my ages.

I'm not jaded.

I'm flipping pages...

Make Me Yours

There's no excuse
I'm too blue.
There's no truth outside of you.

When it rains,
it surely pours.
Oh baby, I love your storms.

Thunder vibrates my chest.
I'm every bit of your mess.
Hold me near.
Kiss me far.
I've gotta be where you are.

Bite my lip.
Break my heart.
It hurts to be where you are.

Lightning strikes-
I have no fear
these clouds will clear
cause you brought me here.

I've got bruises on my wrists
and scratches on my hips;
they are trophies from the last night we spent.

Liquored up, I fell in love.
You tied me up!
You tied me up!
I like that stuff.
I'm too rough...

So, don't make me a beauty.
Just attack me.
Kidnap me.
I want to be happy.

Aren't you glad you have me?

I need this...

Did you lie?

Your facade,
shed your facade.
I crack jokes for your smile.
I break glass
so that you react.
Baby, you've gotta crash.

You've gotta know
I need you to
name me,
tie me up, and chain me.

Make me a beauty.

Make me yours.
