The BeST YEAR - EP 

 

The Best Year
k. ward
11/29/12

She stares at her watch, seconds burn so fast into years
She stares at her life and she dreams 'I'm so self aware'
I could've done so much more, if I only knew
If I'd heard this man speak, well he said 

Chorus:
This is the best year of my life
Whether its wrong or right
I let the past go...didn't fight
For once in my life living free
Of the things that keep me down, it's so clear now that I can see
This is the best year of my life 

She stares at her kids to watch them move
From diapers into cars
She takes her notes in her head, never writing down
I am living so much more, than I ever have before
So thank you my friend, for when you said, when you screamed

Chorus:
This is the best year of my life
Whether its wrong or right
I let the past go...didn't fight
For once in my life living free
Of the things that keep me down, it's so clear now that I can see
This is the best year of my life

 

Made for Me
k. ward

10/7/12

Every time I walk through terminal 4, 
I see the city that calls my name for more
Took a stroll through August look to the west
Stare down at my feet realize I'm not like the rest

Chorus:
Take my mind and press erase
I'm running from your past and of your smiling face
Take my life and let it be
We've Been here before it seems, I thought we closed the case 

And you doubt, and you breathe and you change and you kiss and when she's gone she swims right through your veins

This life's not rigged it was made for me...
Made for me 

Verse 2
Some people tell me I should make up my mind
These same people when they live they're often blind
I took a trip to Paris, just for the day
It made all of my mind and all my plans just go away


Chorus:
Take my mind and press erase
I'm running from your past and of your smiling face
Take my life and let it be
We've Been here before it seems, I thought we closed the case 

And you doubt, and you breathe and you change and you kiss and when she's gone  she swims right through your veins


This life's not rigged it was made for me...
Made for me

 

Take It From Me
k. ward
 
I swam across the open sea,
Many miles to breathe
I couldn’t say who or why, it just came to me
I glance, into your smile, takes me back for a while
I tried, to hide but your look it feels so real and then the invitation is so empty
 
Chorus:
Tell me know don't play around
Then we'll know that it was worth it
Best of luck with what you need
Another 10 percent take it from me 

How many countries? Can I see?
Before they’ve seen me
All these plans that we made
I did them anyway   
I glance, into your smile, takes me back for a while
I tried, to hide but your look it feels so real and then the invitation is so empty

Chorus:
Tell me know don't play around
Then we'll know that it was worth it
Best of luck with what you need
Another 10 percent take it from me 

Bridge:
Left foot right foot, get in line
So much more to breathe
So many colours to see

 

7:30
k. ward
5/05
 
Verse:
It wasn’t really over, at least that’s what they said that night
Then when you finally told her, you were the same and you took me for all I’m worth
Its too late now its 7:30 again, its cold and I’m waiting to go back home
Take your life as I’m running away, all in all for what your worth
 
Chorus:
There’s too much now, I’m waiting for and as I go
I’m running around
To take your place as I know, as I go
Its to late anyway to go back Home
 
Verse:
I could’ve waited for all that news we already knew
Then when you hated she took all your money and ran to Mexico
Its too late now its 7:30 again, its cold and I’m waiting to go back home
Take your life as I’m running away, all in all for what your worth
 
Chorus:
There’s too much now, I’m waiting for and as I go
I’m running around
To take your place as I know, as I go
Its to late anyway to go back Home

 

Safe
k. ward
8/31/06

Verse:
So he’s safe, at least you’ve got, that down
Black eats the white, but he’s somewhere in between us
You’re a long way from here can’t you see in me
It’s a long way down, to be safe, not free

Chorus:
I could not be waiting not this time
I’ve been silent for too long, he’s in love with her
Take a moment of your precious time, finally notice that he’s
safe not real...he’s just safe
 
Verse:
Well he’s great, but there’s no passion there
You’re much crazier than, you get credit for
You’re a long way from here can’t you see in me
It’s a long way to fall down, to be safe, not free

Chorus:
I could not be waiting not this time
I’ve been silent for too long, he’s in love with her
Take a moment of your precious time, finally notice that he’s
safe not real...he’s just safe
 
Bridge:
If white picket fences, are what you need
If all your expenses, are what you need
He’s safe not real, he’s safe not real as
 (high) he calls your name to you, he’s safe not real
