Beth Goodin Too Hard To Say

Too Hard To Say

I’ll be completely transparent about this. I was really bummed out when I wrote and recorded this song. I said I would never post it because it’s one of the few songs where the thing I’m singing about actually happened directly to me. So even though I know for a fact that the person I had this experience with is going to see and hear it, I’m doing it. I’m putting it online, because ultimately, this song is very close to my heart and I’m proud of it. I considered re-recording it where I didn’t mess up, but I felt this frustrated, vulnerable version was the most genuine I could ever get. Hopefully you’ll be able to hear what I was feeling.

I did a quick mash up of my song Ever Since I Met You with I Want You Back by the Jackson 5. Enjoy!

This song was inspired by the film Nobody Walks. All rights to the film Nobody Walks go to their rightful owners.

I’m turning over a fresh page
cause nobody walks away
from this unscathed
So focused on my burns
that i ignored the flames
now nobody talks about
their pain

I wish it was easier to pretend like it never happened

But I feel like I am grasping at straws
trying to hold on
to this perfect memory of you
So in my mind you’ll live without flaw
I’m trying to move on
to a world where I don’t ache for you

Maybe I’ll get to a place where i have peace that this ever happened

A year has passed
but I have to say
I could swear I still hear the wind
whisper your name
People see my scars
and ask if I’m okay
they don’t know I lay awake
and hope you’re not in pain

I wish this was simpler I’d fake like it never happened

But I feel like I am grasping at straws
trying to hold on
to this perfect memory of you
So in my mind you’ll live without flaw
I’m trying to move on
to a world where I don’t ache for you

But I feel like I am grasping at straws
trying to hold on
to this perfect memory of you
So in my mind you’ll live without flaw
I’m trying to move on
to a world where I don’t ache for you

Maybe I’ll get to a place where i have peace that this ever happened
I think I’m finally at a place where I have peace that we ever happened

I still ache for you
When the nights are long
I wish I didn’t
But I still ache for you

I still x3
I still ache for you

I still ache for you x2

Small Plains (Long Walk To Ardmore)

flipflopnation:

This song is dedicated to my friends Courtney and Jared who are in a long distance relationship. Courtney was put into our lives by the will and grace of God and she is so special to me. Jared is someone who has been in my life for almost 15 years (!!!!) and is like family. So, when they started dating it was like a dream come true. Two incredible people in a Christ-centered, loving, respectful relationship? THAT’S MY FAVORITE. Anyway, I sat down at the piano thinking I was going to write a completely different song, but this is what came out. So this is for all of the long distance couples out there, but, mostly, this is for you guys. Happy one year!

Distance is just a dream
It’s just a thing
That we’ve imagined
Words are all we need
Cause when you speak
Love is all but captured

So say goodnight
Under the A-Town Light
And tell me

Baby what’s a couple of miles
When I close my eyes and see your smile
You’re glowing
Like you always do
Sweetheart what’s a couple of hours
When I play this song and know that it’s ours
I’m showing
That I’d love you to the moon

Reality is just fine
Since you’re mine
Even when not beside me
So call me
When you’re alone
Cause I am too
And misery loves company

So say goodnight
Under the A-Town Light
And tell me

Baby what’s a couple of miles
When I close my eyes and see your smile
You’re glowing
Like you always do
Sweetheart what’s a couple of hours
When I play this song and know that it’s ours
I’m showing
That I’d love you to the moon

What’s a few small plains when I can hear you say I love you

My timing was all over the place on this one. Wow. Sorry about that. I suck at piano.

___________________________________________________

I should probably be asleep right now
But my heart is somewhere in my mouth
And I need to know, And I need to know, And I need to know
Just what you’re feeling
You got a gaze that looks past my scars
And a song that heals my broken heart
So I need to know, So I need to know, So I need to know
Just what you’re feeling

If you want me to go
Then I’ll go
If you want me to stay
I’ll stay 

Why do I breath your name and sing your love
Baby tell me am I good enough
Oh I need to know, Oh I need to know, Oh I need to know
Just what you’re feeling
Tell me why if this isn’t real
Your name has become my hearts seal
Oh I need to know, Oh I need to know, Oh I need to know
Just what you’re feeling

If you want me to go
Then I’ll go
If you want me to stay
I’ll stay 

If you want me to go
Then I’ll go
If you want me to stay
I’ll stay 

If you don’t want me that way
Then I’ll go
But I need you to know
That I’ll stay

I should probably be asleep right now
But my heart is somewhere in my mouth

flipflopnation:

If only you said to me if only
If only you looked at me and saw what you wanted
If you saw me as more than the mistake that you made
Would you finally look my way

Like watercolor you were bright then you ran out
Like a canvas I was stained
You took your brush and marked me carelessly
And on your wall I still remain

You added me to your gallery
Of broken hearts covered in paint
With naive hope we wait in our quandary
Dust gathering on the frames

Like watercolor you were bright then you ran out
Like a canvas I was stained
You took your brush and marked me carelessly
And on your wall I still remain

Like watercolor you were bright then you ran out
Like a canvas I was stained
You took your brush and marked me carelessly
And on your wall I still remain

You hung me up to dry
And forgotten here I hang
Silently wondering why
But you’ll never see me 

You hung me up to dry
And forgotten here I hang
Silently shouting why
But you’ll never see me

Like watercolor you were bright then you ran out

Many thanks to Anna for inspiring this song even though she didn’t mean to. She’s honestly the best.

Better

flipflopnation:

In a perfect world you would be mine
I would be your girl and you’d be my brightest night

In a perfect world we would be together
Only one I’d see because you are so much better

You are so much better than all the rest
You are so much better than all the rest

So hold me baby like I can fix all your pain
Let me heal your wounds as I say your name

You’ll be my fortress I’ll be your shelter
Only one I need because you are so much better

You are so much better than all the rest
You are so much better than all the rest

If he’s a prince well then baby you’re a king
If he’s a sweetheart yours is made of sugar darling
I may wear his jacket but I’m wearing your ring
Stop worrying honey because you’re the only one for me

You are so much better than all the rest (x4)

Beth Goodin You Got Me
Beth Goodin
You Got Me

flipflopnation:

I just can’t get the words out fast enough
My knees are shaking but I’m trying to keep acting tough
Something’s ‘bout to give
Something’s ‘bout to break
Give me something to live for
'cause my hearts at stake

And I’m telling you that 

Ooh
You got me, you got me, you got me,
And you
You’re lovely, you’re lovely, you’re lovely
Boy since you picked me up
I wasn’t strong enough
To resist you
Say ooh
You got me, you got me, you got me

My blood is rushin’ like a racehorse that’s about to win
Almost can’t hear myself think o’er my adrenaline
'Cause you captured my soul I must admit
And if you’re asking I’ll tell you boy this is it

Yeah I’m telling you that 

Ooh
You got me, you got me, you got me,
And you
You’re lovely, you’re lovely, you’re lovely
Boy since you picked me up
I wasn’t strong enough
To resist you
Say ooh
You got me, you got me, you got me
