Lyrics to Greyson's Original Songs

 

Broken Hearts

by Greyson Michael Chance (c) 2010

I remember the first time I saw you
With your pretty brown eyes that sparkled
In the light
And your long brown hair
And the way you could dance so well

And you took the air I’m breathing
And stole my heart
I don’t know what happened
But we fell apart
You left me with a Broken Heart
Broken Heart

And broken hearts they never fade away
And broken hearts are here, here to stay

I know that we didn't end well
But that doesn’t give you the excuse to
Date all the men you can
Especially, my best friend

Cause you took the air I’m breathing
You stole my heart
I don’t know what happened
But we fell apart
You left me with a Broken Heart
Broken Heart 

And broken hearts they never fade away
And broken hearts are here, here to stay

Cause you took the air I’m breathing
And stole my heart
I don’t know what happened
But we fell apart
You left me with a Broken Heart
Broken Heart

And you took the air I’m breathing
And stole my heart
I don’t know what happened
But we fell apart
You left me with a Broken Heart
Broken Heart

And broken hearts they never fade away!

Cause you took the air I’m breathing
And stole my heart
I don’t know what happened
But we fell apart
You left me with a Broken Heart
Broken Heart

Stars

by Greyson Michael Chance (c) 2010

I started to cry as the doctor told me
She was going to leave us tonight
So I stifled my tears and I went to her room
And to my surprise she had a twinkle in her eye
She said:
“You know that I am leaving you behind, but don’t worry I’ll be fine, I’ll will be high in the blue sky, among those beautiful stars”

Cause in the sky
You’re so high
There are beautiful stars which shine the night
She’ll be dancing in the clouds and
She’ll be singing in the rain
Among those beautiful stars

Cause in the sky
Oh so high
There are beautiful stars which shine the light
She’ll be dancing in the clouds and
She’ll be singing in the rain
Among those beautiful stars

I held her hand as she went
She took her last breath
And the tears started flowing out again
And I went to the window
And I opened it, and
There she was she was shining in the sky
Among those beautiful stars..

Cause in the sky
Oh so high
There are beautiful stars which shine the night and
She’ll be dancing in the clouds
She’ll be singing in the rain
Among those beautiful stars!

Way up in the sky
There are beautiful stars that shine the light 
She’ll be dancing in the clouds
She’ll be singing in the rain
Among those beautiful stars...

And five years have past
The cancer was spreading
I wouldn't last
So I took my last breath...

I was in the sky
Oh so high
With those beautiful stars that shine the light
I was dancing in the clouds!
And I was be singing in the rain!
And I saw a beautiful face

And we were in the sky
Oh so high
With those beautiful stars that shine the light
We were dancing in the clouds!
We were singing in the rain!
Among those beautiful stars..

...

We were dancing in the clouds and
We were singing in the rain
Among those beautiful stars...

My God, I knew the lyrics for Stars had to be "stellar", soul-rending, impossibly real...but to see them in full here...I am... beyond awe...because you see, I am a poet. It's probably the only thing I've ever done well and with genuine feeling. So I read the lyrics to Stars with the eye of a writer whose whole world is about trying to see deeply, to glean meaning, and to journey beyond the boundaries of what I know and have lived into the hidden parts of me that remember things they've never experienced and know things they have no "earthly" way of knowing...and Stars, is this...so yet again, I find myself asking how can he be...for such a vast and haunting gift to come alive in one so young. Old soul, I'd say. And a wildly gifted poet...

No offense but.. The lyrics you have to Broken Hearts is wrong. It actually goes like this..

I remember the first time I saw you
With your pretty brown eyes that sparkled in the light
And your long brown hair
And the way you could dance so well

And you took the air I’m breathing you stole my heart
I don’t know what happened but we fell apart
You left me with a broken heart
Broken heart

And broken hearts they never fade away
And broken hearts are here, here to stay

I know that we didn't end well
But that doesn’t give you the excuse to
Date all the men you can
Especially my best friend

'Cause you took the air I’m breathing you stole my heart
I don’t know what happened but we fell apart
You left me with a broken heart
Broken heart

And broken hearts they never fade away
And broken hearts are here, here to stay

'Cause you took the air I’m breathing you stole my heart
I don’t know what happened but we fell apart
You left me with a broken heart
Broken heart

You took the air I’m breathing you stole my heart
I don’t know what happened but we fell apart
You left me with a broken heart
Broken heart

And broken hearts they never fade away

'Cause you took the air I’m breathing you stole my heart
I don’t know what happened but we fell apart
You left me with a broken heart
Broken heart

Thanks so much for helping out with the lyrics...I noticed when Greyson sang it on The Ellen Show that indeed my lyrics were wrong and you have confirmed that... Thanks again! ;=)

This is a song I wrote by myself about my very first heart break, and I worked really hard on it. I hope you like it!!!

These days are slow\ nothings gone right\ everythings a blur\ widh it would come to an end\ these shadows that\ creep around at night\ make me think of you\ all the fun times\ we had together\ and all the memories we made\ are shattered on the floor\ worked so hard\ to make you happy\ I don't know why\ but it always feels like\ a part of me is missing\ can't bear another\ second in these shadows\ can't find sunlight\ when I need it most\ can't find anything in these shadows\ its like the earths sun just flew away\ theres darkness everywhere\ can't go back home\ to where I belong\ because of these shadows\ they're everywhere\ and I have nowhere to hide\ all alone with the shadowss\ they've taken over everything I've ever done\ what happens now?\ does everything just dissappear\right infront of me?\ or is it just creep around me\ is it scary?\ everything just starts to fall apart\ right infront of me\is it just me\ or is everyone around me afraid of the shadows\ all these bodies\ left behind from the shadows we see\ how do we stop them?\ how do we show them were fearless?\ not afraid of the shadows\ someday these shadows we see will vanish\ all will be safe and sound\ no more worrying\ dont have to remember\ all these scary memories\ are left behind in the shadows\ now we must move on\ these shadows are gone for good\ now I can finally\ see this beautiful light\ my family\ happy memories\ that were left behind\ are now fresh in my mind\ the shadows are gone for good
