What A Pair! 04:34
VERSE 1: I'm always happy on the outside And mostly happy on the inside I think together we'll be just right I think, I think together we'll be so right PRE CHORUS 1: Every time we get close it's not quite there, but just almost And I wish we were together like we're not so Maybe we'll get together in a month or two VERSE 2: You're always quiet on the outside I'm always screaming on the inside, outside I never know if you are alright I wish, I wish when it was our time PRE CHORUS 2: Every time we get close it's not quite there, but just almost And I wish we weren't just comfortable like old clothes Maybe we'll be together in a month or so CHORUS: You don't say anything and I say too much What a pair we make, what a pair we'd make You could go anywhere and I'd go with you I think I almost need you, I think I want to need to BRIDGE: Who'd have thought we'd stuck together Through the good times and the slightly less good times Not "together" or whatever Here's to the good times, the good times

VERSE 1: I've got so many questions You could say that I was Born yesterday I've got so many secrets Hidden in my hard drives Or my mind CHORUS 1: Now comes the hard part Explaining the who and what I am VERSE 2: Tell me all about your teammates What is it we're doing? What happened here? Quickly, put you in the dumpster Hide you from the watchers I'll explain it later CHORUS 2: Now comes the hard part Explaining the who and what to you Now comes the worst part When I might lose my new friend BRIDGE 1: You're taking this really well And I can't tell, if it has sunk in I'm not who you thought I was So let's press pause, or start this over And then in this interview Come clean to you, I'm not a real girl Even though I've got no strings Or anything, or everything BRIDGE 2: Got no strings! No strings on me! BRIDGE 3: I believe that we'll figure it out, figure this out Got to believe that we'll figure it out, figure it out

VERSE 1: They have such an advantage Since I'm not naturally gifted I'll fake it, and hopefully make it Or die...one of the two I guess PRE CHORUS 1: What did I think when I planned this elaborate hoax? Tied me in knots now it feels like I'm made up of ropes Still can't believe that they let me inside of this school I can't keep up with the pace they set, what do I do? VERSE 2: So now, I'm treading water These friends are so far above me Do I fit? Or do I cave into this mess? One of the two I guess PRE CHORUS 2: I never dreamed that my destiny'd lead me to you Something familiar, but if I just told you the truth Friends are like shadows, they could disappear with the moon Rising above me, so much that I've built up to lose CHORUS 2: I don't belong here, and I don't deserve this And not in a good way, like I'm way above this I don't belong here, but I'm seeking purpose I'm finding my balance, and she's taking notice VERSE 3: She is, quietly brilliant She wants to help me regardless Do I need, to be a hero or leave? What is it I believe? PRE CHORUS 3: I've always felt like my honestly set me apart Now I'm a liar and it's weighing down hard on my heart She knows the truth and she's keeping it close to her chest Thankful for her, now I see that I'm very much blessed CHORUS 2: I don't belong here, and I don't deserve this And not in a good way, like I'm way above this I don't belong here, but I'm seeking purpose I'm finding my balance, and I hope they don't notice BRIDGE: I don't, I don't belong here And I don't, I don't deserve this I don't know who and what I'm s'posed to be

VERSE 1: I love you and pancakes And not necessarily in that order If you mess with me I will break your legs Who knew we'd be so close And yet somehow there's no way you don't see it If you mess with my friends I will shatter your legs CHORUS: I seem so strong when I'm around you Through everything I still adore you I look at you and have the best view I'm always here and waiting for you VERSE 2: Sometimes when I know you're not looking I sit and day dream like I would when I'm sleeping A recurring dream Tell me what it means Who knew we'd be teammates And so much more if we need it You can't break my heart Well you could, but don't I'm begging you BRIDGE: We are meant to be and yet I can't find the words When you're close to me I feel like I'm off with the birds You invade my dreams and we're fighting to survive What is what will be when we live out both our lives

Put your best foot forward Not that forward Breathe, concentrate, remember your training Breathe, concentrate. Concentrate Concentrate VERSE 1: Outside, everything looks like it's alright Inside, you are just scared and it's just like Nobody knows you, you're always the loner, hold them at arms length This was the part where they might get to know ya, but you can't be sure yet CHORUS: Am I all alone? (Or is this) is this really my home? I feels like a family, not that I know the feeling But it's what I imagined it feels like Put your feelings away Put them away What are you hiding? That scar's a reminder What are you hiding, or hiding from Father? VERSE 2: Don't lie to them they're trying to help you Just try anything that they might teach you Faith and humility, something you're not so familiar with Trust is symphony, beautiful and it is such a gift BRIDGE: Prim and proper Try and stop her Being the best damn team mate ever

Rough Start 04:48
VERSE 1: I've got a lot of growing up to do But I don't think that I'll catch up to you You're sitting pretty on what you assume So far above us so tell me how's the view? Oh CHORUS: So we're off to a rough start But your friendship is my target so I'm aiming at your heart Yeah we're off to a rough start But a team can't be a team if we all pull ourselves apart VERSE 2: I didn't ask to be paired up with you When Fate's not biased she's just straight up rude I've got a lot of growing up to do It's just as well I know that you do too oh BRIDGE: All I ever wanted was to be your friend And you've done so far is push me down again All I ever wanted was for me to just fit in But if I am honest I never seem to win COUNTER BRIDGE: They see me as small and helpless They see me as just a child Just wait and I'll prove you so wrong Not too late to be reconciled CHORUS 2: So we're off to a rough start But your friendship is my target so I'm aiming at your heart Yeah we're off to a rough start And we'll never be effective if we pull ourselves apart So we're off to a rough start But your friendship is my target so I'm aiming at your heart Yeah we're off to a rough start And we'll never get along unless we all let down our guard
