All The Mistakes I've Made

By Matt Wade

I donít mean to bother you
But I donít know what else to do
I try my hardest not to cry
I just wanted to apologize.

I had some growing up to do
And Iíd like to make it up to you
If I can,
If I can.

How ya doin'?
What's goin' on?
Haven't seen you in so long.

I miss being able to see your face
And I hope nobody takes my place.
I know I'd be beside myself
If I saw you 'round with someone else.

Feel so lonely and ashamed
About mistakes that I have made.
I know you've heard it all before
But I promise not to make them anymore.

I don't blame you for leaving me behind
But I sure wish I could make you change your mind.
I know you've heard it all before
So what do I even bother for?

Believe me when I say I've changed
And that I'm sorry for all the mistakes I've made.
I know you've heard it all before
But I can't stand this anymore.

Don't blame you for leaving me behind
Wish I could make you change your mind
And I think about you all the time.

Get The Picture

By Matt Wade

I had a dream and you were there
Sitting pretty in a chair
Looking at me with those eyes.

There was a knocking at the door
And someone I had seen before
Looked at you and I surprised.

She turned to me and asked me why
And without even blinking an eye
I reached over and grabbed your hand.

She began to tear up fast
Having flashbacks of the past
I said: "This wasn't something I had planned."

And she wipes her eyes
Stunned by what she's come to realize
And I point to the door
She says: "I never, ever want to see you any more."

Finally you get the picture now
I've got my eye on someone else anyhow
I could tell you were disgraced just by the look upon your face
Finally you get the picture now.

I close my eyes and there you are again
Lying face-down on my bed
Staring up at me with a smile.

I just watch you laying there
As you're playing with your hair
Humming a sweet song all the while.

Ever so quietly you say
How you love me more each day
But something feels a little wrong.

Honestly I have to say
I wouldn't have it any other way
I'm so glad that bitch is gone.

Oh, how I wish that it were true
That I could wake up and still be next to you
But it's all a fantasy
And I know it isnít real, but at least now I can feel like...

Finally you get the picture now
I've got my eye on someone else anyhow
I can't wait to fall asleep so you're back here next to me
Finally you get the picture now.

(horns)

Finally you get the picture now
I've got my eye on someone else anyhow
I could tell you were disgraced just by the look upon your face
Finally you get the picture now.

Finally you get the picture now
I've got my eye on someone else anyhow
I can't wait to fall asleep so you're back here next to me
Finally you get the picture now.

I Wanna Be On The Radio

By Matt Wade

If I call your name
Would you hear me?
Would you hear me?

What if I had money and fame?
Would that make it easy?
Make it easy?

What is it about my life
That scares everyone away?
I wanna be on the radio
Maybe that would make it all OK.

If I wrote a song
Would you listen?
Would you listen?

If I gave up my dreams
Would you laugh at me
And call me a has-been?

The more I look away
The more I want to know
What the hell's it gonna take?
What do I have to show?

I wanna be on the radio
Not just a star in some puppet show
I'm a man with a plan.

But nothing seems to go my way
And it may sound a tad clichè
But I canít help but cry.

If I ruled the world
Would you fear me?
Would you fear me?

If I wash all my sins away
Would it clear me?
Would it clear me?

Everyday I try and try
And I just can't understand
Why all I have are heavy eyes
And a six foot baby grand?

I wanna be on the radio
Not just a star in some puppet show
I'm a man with a plan.

But nothing seems to go my way
And it may sound a tad clichè
But I can't help but cry.

I wanna be on the radio
And hear my voice in stereo
So you can see
What I can be.

I'll see you all on the other side
I know it's gonna be a hell of a ride
But I know that I'll get by.

Waste of Time

By Matt Wade

Spent my life looking for faces on the moon
But they were cracks and craters in the ground
Held my grace; wore a smile upon my face
Thinking it was keeping you around.

But it's all - just a waste of time.

Hung around the rougher ends of town
Thinking it would make me hip and cool
Only to find I'd completely lost my mind
And now I look like something of a fool.

And it's all - just a waste of time.

You can pretend you're holding up your end
But you and I both know that isn't true
Skies are grey, come another day
'Cause right now I ain't got no use for you.
