Lyrics

Verse 1:

I used to think
That you would be
Everything that I would ever need
But now it’s so clear
‘Cause you’re never here
That you don’t ever plan to be

Chorus:

I won’t wait for the morning light
I’m getting out tonight
You should have expected this
And I know that I’ll be fine
Even if you’re not mine
And that’s just how it is

Verse 2:

You try to blame
The things you have done
On everything and everyone
But you should know
You reap what you sow
And now you will pay for what you’ve done

Chorus:

I won’t wait for the morning light
I’m getting out tonight
You should have expected this
And I know that I’ll be fine
Even if you’re not mine
And that’s just how it is

I won’t wait for you anymore
I’m going out the door
You should have expected this
And I know that I’ll be fine
Even if you’re not mine
And that’s just how it is

Bridge:

Take it back, every heart you torment
Take it back, every heart you break
No you can’t have me back again
All of that, hang your head in shame
It’s all wrong, everything you do
It’s all lies, everything you say
No you can’t have me back again
All of this, you’re the one to blame

Chorus:

I won’t wait for the morning light
I’m getting out tonight
You should have expected this
And I know that I’ll be fine
Even if you’re not mine
And that’s just how it is

Trail out:

That’s just how it is
That’s just how it is

    Hey Ashelyn, I’ve just heard this on Mixposure and I thought it was a great piece that sounds more like a Ashelyn track then a Dave track and told him how much I tought the the composition fitted you to perfection, specially the piano arrangement, but what blew me away is the part where you talk sing in that lower range, wow blew me away, brought a new dimension to your great vocal performance. As for me up to the same, whish I had some Ashelyn vocals to remix, lol, meanwhile I did this project called Worlds (very spacy) with a 20 minutes video to go with it,
    http://youtu.be/dWc3Y5XP89w , peace.

  5. Absolutly amazing! Your voice fit so well with that style of music! Great lyrics too! Loved it!

  6. I absolutely loved it! I cannot wait to hear more! ♥
