Firefly

Firefly, remind of summertime
Remind me of late July
When we sat out
With nothing to do

Firefly, bright under the moonless sky
Give my heart a break tonight
Won’t you call me
Just to say hello

Where did you, where did you go?
I have been waiting for you to come home
Where did you, where did you go, baby?
I am lost without you, girl, you’ll always be my light, my firefly

Firefly, your beauty shines straight through the night
You make me lose track of the time
Until daybreak
When we fall asleep

Girl I know, that it was some time ago
But I still feel I know your soul
And you know mine
It’s so worth the fight

Where did you, where did you go?
I have been waiting for you to come home
Where did you, where did you go, baby?
I am lost without you, girl, you’ll always be my light, my firefly

Firefly, remind of summertime
Remind me of late July
At the ocean
Our toes in the sand

I wonder why, it was you who caught my eye
And made me feel oh so alive
And then told me
We could never be

Closure

Written by Dean Palya Jr, BMI & Jonni Scott, PRS

Closure

I used to love the way that you looked at me when you came home, now baby
All I think about, is what was going on - what was going on baby?
I used the think about the things I could do for you
But now all I think about is you, and how I wish I never let you, never let you in

But you, you've been doing just fine since you hung me out to dry
Since you broke my heart and lied to me
But I'm not doing so fine, what you doing on my mind, what you doing to me?

But I, I've been creeping on you, I don't want to call you, no
But I've reliving everything
And I just need some closure for this to end

Yeah I just need some closure for this to end

I used to love the way that you say you ain't never going nowhere baby
Now was it all just a lie, where did you lose it baby?
I never wanted to end like this, I never wanted a final kiss - no
But now I'm lying on the ground, looking face down, looking face down

But you, you've been doing just fine since you hung me out to dry
Since you broke my heart and lied to me
But I'm not doing so fine, what you doing on my mind, what you doing to me?

But I, I've been creeping on you, I don't want to call you, no
But I've reliving everything
And I just need some closure for this to end

Yeah I just need some closure for this to end

Take away the pain
And maybe then someday
I could let you go, I could let you go

But you got ahold of my heart
And I just want to let you go
I just need some closure for this to end

Intertwine

Written by Dean Palya Jr, BMI

Intertwine

If I had one breath left to spend
I’d go to you and take your hand
And tell you that I wouldn’t have
Spent my days any other way than with you

If I took you for granted babe
And let you feel like I could walk away
Then leave me here in misery
As I try to bring myself to ever want to breathe again
I need you

I’ll give you all of me
I’ll be the best that I can be

I know I’m not perfect babe
But I promise I’ll try every day
To make you smile and make you laugh
And wipe your tears and hold your hand
And share my soul with yours, and yours with mine
And give you all of me and intertwine

If I told you I missed the way
You kissed me for no reason babe
And all I need you to understand
Is I can't live a day without you baby

I’ll give you all of me
I’ll be the best that I can be

I know I’m not perfect babe
But I promise I’ll try every day
To make you smile and make you laugh
And wipe your tears and hold your hand
And share my soul with yours, and yours with mine
And give you all of me and intertwine

I'll intertwine

Work It Out

Written by Dean Palya Jr, BMI

Work It Out

Where did we go wrong, what's with all the secrets?
You've been feeling strong but I'm feeling weakness
I've been losing sleep 'cause I'm worried about us - what makes me doubt us
Is I can't get past what I heard, no

Sometimes I think that we're on to something
Sometimes I think that it's all just love and easy days
But every time that we're getting so close, you keep pushing me away
Why can't we work it out, why can't we work this out?

I don't ever want to let you go, I don't ever want
I don't ever want to let you go, I don't ever want
I don't ever want to let you go, I don't ever want
All I want is just to work it out, now let's work it

Let's work it out now, yeah

Take a look around at everything we burnt down
I could see the smoke from a mile away now
Was it all just there like the whole time, in a room of mirrors the whole time
Is it just hopeless thinking that maybe it was real, now baby

Sometimes I think that we're on to something
Sometimes I think that it's all just love and easy days
But every time that we're getting so close, you keep pushing me away
Why can't we work it out, why can't we work this out?

I don't ever want to let you go, I don't ever want
I don't ever want to let you go, I don't ever want
I don't ever want to let you go, I don't ever want
All I want is just to work it out, now let's work it

Remember you told me I'm the last man on Earth for you?

How does it feel?
How does it feel, knowing that we may never even speak again?
Knowing that we may never even see again?

How did we wake up, on different pages?

Remember you told me I'm the last man on Earth for you?
Remember you told me I'm the last man on Earth for you?

Every time that we're getting so close, you keep pushing me away
Why can't we work it out, why can't we work this out?

I don't ever want to let you go, I don't ever want
I don't ever want to let you go, I don't ever want
I don't ever want to let you go, I don't ever want
All I want is just to work it out, now let's work it

Locked Down

Written & Produced by: Dean Palya Jr, BMI

Locked Down

She said that she'd wait for me
She said it so playfully
All of my friends think that I've gone insane
But I don't think about it though - just pray for me

I've been up all night looking at my phone, look a little too foolish
Lady to my right wondering why I ain't finna tryin' to do sh*t
And I've been wondering too, baby I don't want to wait much more for you
Baby got me blinded by the light, baby come with me tonight

And she got me down, down, down, down, down
Took me up and locked me down, now it's only your hips that I'm around when I'm around
We don't f*ck around, round, round, round, round
Baby you've got me, you've got me locked down, locked down, yeah

Trying to keep it low key
All the while wondering what she did to me, did to me, did to me
Your body got me so faded
Girl I've never felt so creative

I've been up all day tracing your shape up in my mind
Feeling all loose like all the time
Won't you stay in my bed another night
Why you got me so in love?

And she got me down, down, down, down, down
Took me up and locked me down, now it's only your hips that I'm around when I'm around
We don't f*ck around, round, round, round, round
Baby you've got me, you've got me locked down, locked down, yeah

Down, you've got me locked down
Down, you've got me locked down

Nobody Else

Written & Produced by: Dean Palya Jr, BMI

Nobody Else

You - you're the only reason I been waking up
I can't sleep, I just daydream all week about you
You're the only feeling that makes me feel like there's hope
Even when the times are unfolding, yeah

Looking out at the ocean, wonder if you noticed
That my heart's beating loud - beating like a drum drum, drum drum drum
I could see you shaking, so I've been thinking
What if I held you close, would you mind if I held your body

You've got me feeling like I never felt with no one else
I don't want nobody but you

I don't want to get down with nobody else
I don't want to get lost with nobody else
All I want is you all to myself
Honey give it to me
I don't want to make love with nobody else
You're the only one I want to feel
Gotta have you all to myself
Honey let's just go

Nobody, nobody else - Nobody, nobody else

And my mind got faded, did I get wasted?
I can still taste you, that was weeks ago
I just can't let it go down, can't let it go now
I think I cannot go on without you, I think I cannot go on without you baby

You've got me feeling like I never felt with no one else
I don't want nobody but you

I don't want to get down with nobody else
I don't want to get lost with nobody else
All I want is you all to myself
Honey give it to me
I don't want to make love with nobody else
You're the only one I want to feel
Gotta have you all to myself
Honey let's just go

Nobody, nobody else - Nobody, nobody else
You are like nobody else

Invincible

Written & Produced by: Dean Palya Jr, BMI

Invincible

Let me love, take my love, let me love
Because my love’s invincible

Let me down tonight
All I know is that I need you
All I know is that I feel you
Drifting away
Every mistake I made a thousand times
And now you know I’m not perfect
And if you don’t think I’m worth it
How could you walk away?

Every time that you tell me, you tell me you won’t
I start to thinking then my mind keeps telling me no, you can’t go

I just lose control, every time that you smile, now we can’t keep fighting
Cause when I’m all alone, I still hear all your words, now we can’t keep lighting
Fire after fire, just as soon as we put one out, one pops up
But you are in control
Let me love, take my love, cause my love’s invincible

Let me love, take my love, let me love
Because my love’s invincible

I’ll give it all away
All I know is that I have to
All I have, will it do for you?
You take over mine
Every time that I let you in
I try to give everything to you

Every time that you tell me you won’t

I just lose control, every time that you smile, now we can’t keep fighting
Cause when I’m all alone, I still hear all your words, now we can’t keep lighting
Fire after fire, just as soon as we put one out, one pops up
But you are in control
Let me love, take my love, cause my love’s invincible

Yeah my love’s invincible

Please say that you do not mean when you say you should go
I start to thinking and then I think that I cannot go on

I just lose control, every time that you smile, now we can’t keep fighting
Cause when I’m all alone, I still hear all your words, now we can’t keep lighting
Fire after fire, just as soon as we put one out, one pops up
But you are in control
Let me love, take my love, cause my love’s invincible

Yeah my love’s invincible

Skin

Written & Produced by: Dean Palya Jr, BMI

I like the way you move
I like the way you look at me
Like you're not trying to be conspicuous
Baby show me that you're serious

You, you've got me feeling alive now
With you way you grab me, pull me close
As our hearts beat loud
We match the pulse

I want to move with your body
I want to take you somewhere else
I want to feel your skin
I want to feel your skin, feel it all up on mine
I want to rock with your body
I want to lose myself in you
I want to feel your skin
I want to feel your skin, feel it all up on mine

Cut the lights way down
Feel the air get thicker now
Then we both start sipping Chardoney
Baby let me show the way

You, you've got me going so crazy
With the way you're staring into me
Take my hand
And I will set you free

I cannot feel nothing else
My heart is beat, exploding to pieces
I cannot feel nothing else
Come a little closer now

I want to move with your body
I want to take you somewhere else
I want to feel your skin
I want to feel your skin, feel it all up on mine
I want to rock with your body
I want to lose myself in you
I want to feel your skin
I want to feel your skin, feel it all up on mine

I want to feel it all up on mine
I want to feel it all up on mine
