True Stories I Made Up
The Greener Grass *new rough lyrics*
10/22/09 at 11:46 PM by Trevor Sostarich
Iím done with all of my boring nonsense
and speaking for everything in past tense
Just want to speak for the here and now
cause I know Iím done letting myself down
overcoming things that Iíve done
finding new meaning in old songs
all about my long lost loves
whom I have no reason speaking of


I finally realized everything they said
ďYouíre gonna be someone.Ē
ďyouíre gonna help them mend.Ē
(Broken hearts, the lonely and depressed)
ďyouíre the voice of reason now sing to them!Ē

I know I will never save the world
but I can save myself
and I know I am ready now
to be the voice of everyone else
how could I be if I canít define
the person I have been this entire time
but now I see with non hazy eyes
the greener grass on the other side

I use to curl up in bathrooms at night
after drugs and alcohol took over my life
always attempting to find an escape
but all of my reality was slipping away
but those days are gone for me now
I finally figured myself out
for what I wanted this whole entire time
was right there staring me back in my eyes

I finally realized that Iím someone
should have listened from day one
Iíve already had my time to mend
Now I reach out to all of them!
I know I will never save the world
but I can save myself
and I know I am ready now
to be the voice of everyone else
how could I be if I canít define
the person I have been this entire time
but now I see with non hazy eyes
the greener grass on the other side

I thought Iíd lost it all in the end
then I came running back again
to the voices that use to call my name
somehow they never gave up faith
in me and all of my idealistic poetry
of all the personaís I had long to be
finding truth, no more lies
cut the rope to my demise

I know I will never save the world
but I can save myself
and I know I am ready now
to be the voice of everyone else
how could I be if I canít define
the person I have been this entire time
but now I see with non hazy eyes
the greener grass on the other side




PS - Iím very wordy, but I like it that way.

Epilogue *lyrics in progress*
07/01/09 at 10:45 PM by Trevor Sostarich
Soaking in the sweat of what I long to be
I was sorry before this all happened
but stubborn-ness took the best of me
I would re-write these pages if I knew they'd be read
but all I did was put the book down
for it to never be picked back up again
it's a whole new chapter with the same old cover
it's been beaten at the seams, but I still annotate
between the heroin and his lover
and all of the lines that they speak
underlining paragraphs of what they meant to say

can I be a cliff note that you always remember
through the rainiest of days
when it's overcast on your mind
and you lose all hope in everything.
can I be the one there to save you
right at the very end
where all the sentences run together
and all of your broken starts to mend.
Let me be your Epilogue

"Better Than That" *rough lyrics*
06/25/09 at 11:41 PM by Trevor Sostarich
Sitting on the edge of my seat
on a porch at two in the morning
I think about getting some sleep
but my mind is only racing
I'm dwelling again on my mistakes
that I will never live down
and I don't blame you if you won't forgive me
it's everything I deserve now

but I'm here and I'm not giving up just yet
because I know that this can all be fixed

I remember when you would say
"you're better than that, you're better than that"
I remember when you would say
"you're better than that,
boy you're better than that"
and I know I am

coughing up my lungs thinking about
everything that I've done wrong
and I know that there are some doubts
but you are my one and only song
I'm sorry I didn't realize it before
I took off and ran far away
but now I'm back and this time for good
so believe me when I say

I'm here and I'm not giving up just yet
because I know that this can all be fixed

I remember when you would say
"you're better than that, you're better than that"
I remember when you would say
"you're better than that,
boy you're better than that"

and I know I am
everything you could ask for
everything that you could need
and if I'm not that in your eyes
than I'll just set you free
for someone else to win your heart
to make those butterflies flutter inside
and I hope that he will never tear you apart
like I have done so many times

I remember when you would say
"you're better than that, you're better than that"
I remember when you would say
"you're better than that,
boy you're better than that"

I remember when you would say
"you're better than that, you're better than that"
I remember when you would say
"you're better than that,
boy you're better than that"

and I know I am
I know I am...




--------------------------------------------------------

These lyrics are just in the rough stages. I'm working on this song and I figured I'd share what I have so far. Feedback is always welcomed, whether it's positive or negative. Let me know what ya think.

PS. It's an up tempo song. Maybe that way you can put a beat to it.

This is how I feel
05/02/09 at 01:13 PM by Trevor Sostarich
I'm a paint brush in a way.
I'm simple, yeah, I'm plain.
I'm colored all the same.
I have meaning if you find it in yourself.
I'll sell myself or not,
like I really give a fuck
I'm just an artist on a shelf.



Pick up The Dangerous Summer's new album on Tuesday. It's seriously one of the best pop rock albums I've heard in a long time. The lyrics are great. The music is great. I've had it on repeat for days now.

"I Wrote You" *new lyrics*
01/31/09 at 11:11 PM by Trevor Sostarich
I wrote you a love note on the park bench
just in case you ever go back there again
and all the lines spell out to "I've said this before;
so here's just another little reminder."
and I'm sorry for not saying anything sooner
but trust me I don't think I quiet understood
all of the words I wish I could stop and say
as I drive through your neighborhood.
Just one last time.

and I never see your car
did you get up and move away?
just like I'm about to do
because I can't stand to be in this place
and I hope that you're happy
because lord knows you deserve to be
I guess I'm just sorry
and I hope he's a better man than me

I wrote you a love note on an old photograph
I submitted it to a publisher, so keep your eyes open for it
if says "I miss you most on cold winter nights
where the golf course was the only place we could hide
and I'd give you my shirt to keep you warm
even if I froze to death I was happy to have you in my arms."
Just one last time.

and I never have the guts
to find out how you've been
it's all been word of mouth
through all of our mutual friends
and I know that you're happy
because you wouldn't allow yourself to be
any less than that like I am
but I know that he's better than me

so please just take the time to listen
to words I still write for you
though we've grown into separate paths
these vines over grown right back to you
and I'm sorry for all of the pain that I've caused
I didn't ever want to see you pick up those drugs
because you were better than that
you were always better than that.

but I'm going to bite my tongue
and sing these words alone
no one needs to hear my sob story
of this terrible mistake I've done...

"Look At The Mess I've Made"
09/14/08 at 11:06 PM by Trevor Sostarich
I spill words from my glass
like nobody else can understand
the songs that I play aloud
and all the thoughts that race through my head
I only write true stories
but they're all about fictional events
that I make up when alone
and I'm fighting with my eyes to go to bed

so I sing louder than anyone in a crowded room
while I sneak glances at girls that are in my view
sluts wanting to fuck the next poet they meet
but I won't give them a mentionable opportunity

Oh, look at the mess I've made
won't you look at the mess I've made?

I break my neck for better words
as I fuck up everything I have going for me
I snap back into place
changing my dreams into my reality
lips locked and legs tight
no, you're not impressing me at all
if you're clothed on my bed
well then there is something terribly wrong

so I sing louder than anyone in a crowded room
while I sneak glances at girls that are in my view
sluts wanting to fuck the next poet they meet
but I won't give them a mentionable opportunity

Oh, look at the mess I've made
won't you look at the mess I've made?

do you really think I should be surprised?
you're actions are louder than words
and I'm publishing your literature
here's a drunken phone call to get you by
but after all is said and done
you were just one night of fun

it was all a waste
from the way you taste
to the speeches you've made
it's all the same
you never change

(you never change)

so I sing louder than anyone in a crowded room
while I sneak glances at girls that are in my view
sluts wanting to fuck the next poet they meet
but I won't give them a mentionable opportunity

Oh, look at the mess I've made
won't you look at the mess,
the mess that I've made
Oh, look at the mess I've made
won't you look at the mess
the mess that I've made
Oh, look at the mess I've made
won't you look at the mess,
the mess that I've made
Oh, look at the mess I've made
won't you look at the mess
the mess that I've made

do you really think I should be surprised?

"Chasing The Sun" new lyrics. Feedback?
08/23/08 at 10:06 PM by Trevor Sostarich
When I sit back and look at my life
I see how everything has changed
Iíve got all of these new aspirations
and nothing is constant, nothingís the same
so I walk wherever my heart leads me
thereís no crossroads to interfere
no second guessing the steps that I take
because itís all smooth sailing from here


and I remember wanting to leave
because this town has nothing to offer me
I remember wanting to leave
because of this town


now Iím holding my breath
because there is nothing left
but dreams Iíve had
and no muse to take in
Iím just searching for where I belong
so I keep on chasing the sun


As I sit here and take another drag
from the habit I swore myself Iíd quit
I take a good look at all of my days
and ponder about this life that Iím in
where the sky doesnít seem to shine like it should
at night when the stars all show their face
is there really nothing left here for me
there was nothing from the start, it was the same

and I remember wanting to leave
because this town has nothing to offer me
I remember wanting to leave
because of this town


now Iím holding my breath
because there is nothing left
but dreams Iíve had
and no muse to take in
Iím just searching for where I belong
so I keep on chasing the sun


ďkeep on dreamingĒ
they all use to say
ďyouíre running out of time
youíll regret it somedayĒ


but those are words spoken by the hopeless
destroyed by fear and broken promises
and I wonít give up like they want me to
because this is something they were never able to do


now Iím holding my breath
because there is nothing left
but dreams Iíve had
and no muse to take in
Iím just searching for where I belong
so I keep on chasing the sun


Iím holding my breath
because there is nothing left
but dreams Iíve had
and no muse to take in
Iím just searching for where I belong
so I keep on chasing the sun


When I sit back and look at my life
I see how everything has changed
