It’s Simple that You’re Complicated: A Song

0

Written and Performed by Abby Berman

 

It’s Simple

That you’re complicated

And it’s fine

That you have your own mind

For something so easy to say

I wish it was easy that way

To believe the words tumbling, stumbling

From my mouth

 

It’s shameful

My attempt to tie you down

Like some exotic creature

I don’t get used to seeing you around

Hypnotic words you say

They do all they can to steal my heart away

Without a warning it’s still beating as you’re leaving

Tucked tightly in your hands

 

Because I’ve tried and tried

So many times

Even from the start

To convince my heart

It doesn’t love you

But my heart is a stubborn one

It runs miles and miles

Through mountains and streams

It does what it wants

It lives in it’s dreams

That someday you’ll love me

Buy my heart is a stupid one

Oh my heart is a stupid one

And it’s torturing me

 

These people

They’re not complicated

They’re fine

There’s nothing that they mind

They’ve never had a struggle to see

They know not of what you burden on me

And I wouldn’t wish it or curse it, not the worst of it

Though I feel so alone

 

Because I’ve tried and tried

So many times

Even from the start

To convince my heart

It doesn’t love you

But my heart is a stubborn one

It runs miles and miles

Through mountains and streams

It does what it wants

It lives in it’s dreams

That someday you’ll love me

Yes, my heart is a stupid one

Oh, my heart is a stupid one

And it’s torturing me

 

This can’t be good for me

It just can’t be good for me

My belly is hungry

I’m starving for more

This can’t be good for me

It doesn’t feel good to me

But I guess I’ll always get what I settle for

 

Because I’ve tried and tried

So many times

Even from the start

To convince my heart

It doesn’t love you

But my heart is a stubborn one

It runs miles and miles

Through mountains and streams

It does what it wants

It lives in it’s dreams

That someday you’ll love me…someday you’ll love me…someday you’ll love me

Someday you’ll love me…someday you’ll love me…someday you’ll love me

Someday you’ll love me…someday you’ll love me…someday you’ll love me

My heart is a stupid one

Yes, my heart is a stupid one

And it’s torturing me

She’s the One: A Song

5

By Abby Berman

 

 

Like a storm that drowns your soul

Then waits for you to come back again

Take the pieces, once so whole

She waits for you to run back again

 

She’s the one

Your angel, who somehow fell from grace

She’s the one

You kiss her, her porcelain angel face

Let her go

It kills you, it breaks your tender heart

You should know

She’ll slowly tear you apart

 

Like a storm that drowns your soul

Then waits for you to come back again

Take the pieces, once so whole

She waits for you to run back again

 

She’s the one

Your savior, the healer of your pain

In your dreams

You see her, she lets you live again

Let her go

It kills you, but you’ll be better off in time

You should know

They watch her, eat you alive

 

Like a storm that drowns your soul

Then waits for you to come back again

Take the pieces, once so whole

She waits for you to run back again

 

She’ll never give to you

All the things you expect her to today

She’ll only say to you

All the world she knows you want her to say

She’ll never give to you

All you need

Because there is no cause for hope…  when there is no loss of vanity

 

Like a storm that drowns your soul

Then waits for you to come back again

Take the pieces, once so whole

She waits for you to run back again

 

…Take the pieces, once so whole

She waits for you to run back again

Gabriella: A Song

4

By Abby Berman Mazenod

 

Given the circumstances

Given the chain of events

I’ve made my deductions

I’ve come to my conclusions

With theories upon theories

That I’ve made up in my mind

Didn’t take long to discover

That you’ve left him behind

 

Gabriella, Gabriella

Oh, he’s such a perfect fella

But you won’t listen to me

And the love that it could be

Gabriella, Gabriella

You’re his only Cinderella

And oh, you’re missing the boat

I only hope you’ll still float

…Given the circumstances

 

You deserve a good man in your life

So many have taken advantage of you

And maybe you look for that

But you deserve some sanity too

You’re my friend and I respect that

But I think you should listen to me

And I wish you could see in you

All that I see in you

 

Gabriella, Gabriella

Oh, he’s such a perfect fella

And you won’t listen to me

And the love that it could be

Gabriella, Gabriella

You’re his only Cinderella

And oh, you’re missing the boat

I only hope you’ll still float

 

‘Cause he won’t wait around

As long as you want him to

You’re lucky enough

He’s still around after what you put him through

Don’t you see it?

Don’t you feel it?

Don’t you get it?!

He’s all you’ve been waiting for

You’re letting him walk out the door

 

Gabriella, Gabriella

Oh, he’s such a perfect fella

But you won’t listen to me

And the love that it could be

Hope you find him, hope you found him

‘Cause you know you’re only drownin’

And oh, you’re missing the boat

I only hope you’ll still float

…Given the circumstances

 

(This song was written about a beautiful friend of mine who has had a little bit of rough luck with love. She’s still on the journey of finding love, and I know she will find someone who really deserves her soon.)
