Unpack Your Heart

by Phillip Phillips

Meet me where the sunlight ends
Meet me where the truth never bends
Bring all that you’re scared to defend

And lay it down when you walk through my door
Throw all of it out on the floor
Your sorrow, your beauty, your war
I want it all, I want it all

Bring your secrets, bring your scars
Bring your glory, all you are
Bring your daylight, bring your dark
Share your silence
And unpack your heart

Show me something the rest never see
Give me all that you hope to receive
Your deepest regret dies with me

The days when you stumble and fall
The days when you grind to a crawl
The treasure that hides behind your walls
I want it all, yeah I want it all

Bring your secrets, bring your scars
Bring your glory, all you are
Bring your daylight, bring your dark
Share your silence
And unpack your heart
Unpack your heart

Oh, I’m on your side
So shed your shadow
And watch it rise

Oh, I’m on your side
So shed your shadow
And watch it rise
Into your darkness
I’ll shine a light

Bring your secrets, bring your scars
Bring your glory, all you are
Bring your daylight, bring your dark
Share your silence

Bring your honor, bring your shame
All your madness, I will tame
Won’t you lay down, down your guard
Share your silence
And unpack your heart

I’m Not In Love

performed by Dee Dee Sharp

I’m not in love
So don’t forget it
It’s just a silly phase I’m going through
And just because
I call you up
Don’t get me wrong, don’t think you’ve got it made
I’m not in love, no no, it’s because..

I’d like to see you
But then again
That doesn’t mean you mean that much to me
So if I call you
Don’t make a fuss
Don’t tell your friends about the two of us
I’m not in love, no no, it’s because..

I keep your picture
Upon the wall
It hides a nasty stain that’s lying there
So don’t you ask me
To give it back
I know you know it doesn’t mean one thing to me
I’m not in love, no, it’s because..

Ooh you’ll wait a long time for me
Ooh you’ll wait a long time
Ooh you’ll wait a long time for me
Ooh you’ll wait a long time

I’m not in love
So don’t forget it
It’s just a silly phase I’m going through
And just because I call you up
Don’t get me wrong, don’t think you’ve got it made

I’m not in love
I’m not in love
I’m not in love
So don’t forget it
It’s just a silly phase I’m going through
And just because

Let’s Get Lifted

by John Legend

I’ve got something new for you
When it gets you won’t know what to do
Relax, let me move you
Don’t resist its in the air
Just one taste will take you there
Let it flow right through you
I know you’re getting tired of the same ole thing
Imma break the rules gonna change the game
You’ll be screaming my name
And imma take you places you neva seen
You couldn’t picture this in your wildest dreams
Don’t fear you’re here with me

[Chorus:]
Let’s get lifted
(lifted)
Ohh Imma get you high
I’m really gonna blow your mind
We’ll get lifted (lifted)
You’re gonna feel it in you’re soul
And baby you will lose control
We’ll get lifted (high)
Ohhh ohhhh

Once you take a hit of this
You won’t ever want to quit
You’ll be so addicted
Said I’ll have you spinning round and round
Crazy, making freaky sounds
You won’t want to come down
And I’ll have you seeing things and hallucinating
Even walking funny ’cause you’re legs are shaking
All night we’ll be blazin’

I’ll take you for a walk to the other side
We can get high and enjoy the ride
Hold tight we’ll be alright

[Chorus:]

So come and go
(so much I want to show you I’ll take you there)
Yeah, I’ll take you there
Lemme take you there
Said I will show you
(so much I want to show you I’ll take you high)
There’s so much I want to show ya
I’ll take you high ….

Night Time

Night Time

by Krizz Kalico

You do love the nighttime
Ah yea?
Yea
It’s crazy
Feels so real
It is real

In the nighttime
The night is on it’s way
For some reason I feel better
I’m so bored of the day
Like I know how I feel it’s right
In the nighttime
It’s wrong for me to feel this way

So excuse me if it’s weird
When it’s dark some people fear it
I go near it, I can feel it
The sun just fell and I know this feeling well
A change is taking place, my city’s out of space
And I wonder who’s gonna cry tonight, who’s gonna get fly tonight
Get drunk, get high tonight
And who’s gon die tonight?
What is waiting on the side of daytime?
Feels like it’s play time

In the nighttime
The night is on it’s way
For some reason I feel better
I’m so bored of the day
Like I know how I feel it’s right
In the nighttime
It’s wrong for me to feel this way

In my head it’s always nightfall
Close my eyes and then the light’s off
I’m at the white love
Yea these streets still gotta beat me but the mic’s off
They hollerin Kali baby, put your arms round me baby
And show me what’s it made for
I like the sunshine
But I love the moonlight
The freaks come out at night
The darkness is the right time
For us to do what we do

In the nighttime
The night is on it’s way
For some reason I feel better
I’m so bored of the day
Like I know how I feel it’s right

It’s crazy
Don’t know why I feel this way
In the nighttime
It’s crazy
In the nighttime
