What Matters To Me

Written by Emma White & Robert Ellis Orrall

Why do I get so caught up all the time
things just get stuck in my mind and I can't let em go 
Why do we have to be so in control of our lives 
when the truth is the harder we try the more we don't know 

Fancy cars and diamond rings, hipster bars don't mean a thing 
We're showing up just to be seen
and on the inside my heart is breaking 
thought you were a chance worth taking
but what I want might not be what I need 
guess I'm finding out what matters to me 

Standing on the bridge where the water falls
pocket full of pennies yea i tossed them all
deep into the river where wishes go 
tell you what they were but I think you know
now it's time to jump this one way track
find out what it's like to be loved back

cause I don't fit into your world 
of smoke filled nights and pretty girls
I watch you like I'm watching tv, wishing it was me 
and inside my heart is breaking 
thought you were a chance worth taking
what I want might not be what I need
guess I'm finding out what matters to me

(extra verse I threw in.....:)

"Coat of Many Colors"

Back through the years
I go wonderin' once again
Back to the seasons of my youth
I recall a box of rags that someone gave us
And how my momma put the rags to use


There were rags of many colors
Every piece was small
And I didn't have a coat
And it was way down in the fog
Momma sewed the rags together
Sewin' every piece with love
She made my coat of many colors...
