Track Name: TAKE IT EASY (Original YouTube​/​Acoustic version)
"Take It Easy"
(polinar)

far, you're just so far
but why do I feel you?
as though you're sitting right next to me
but maybe I'm just trying to satisfy this compromise

and maybe while I play this guitar
you'll show up in my view
telling me not to worry
then I wake up and find my way back to reality

I hear the clock, it's ticking
late at night it's teasing me - oooo
I can feel the pressure
seeping deep inside of me

Chorus:
take it easy
go right ahead & don't forget to breathe
though it's not all that perfect
it's not always "make it or break it"
take it easy
go on ahead, don't be afraid to feel
no, i don't have all the answers
but as long as we're together
i'm GOnna take it easy


what have I become?
am I still the same me?
Is this the place where I want to be?
Wherever I go I try to find a place -
a home for my heart's rhythm

hear the clock, it's tickin'
late at night it's callin' me - ooooh
I can see the future
that is where you're taking me

bridge:
take my time, enjoy the ride (take it easy)
we'll be fine, all will align - take it... take it... take it...
Track Name: HOW IT FEELS TO BE IN LOVE (Original YouTube​/​Acoustic version)
How It Feels To Be In Love
(krippayne/polinar)

I.
Cool breeze, blue skies
waves keep flirting with the sand
looking in your eyes
you reach over and take my hand
oh, my heart's beating faster
whatever this is I want it to last

Chorus:
It's sunny days and so amazed by the ways
that you can pick me up
whenever I'm down
and it's the crazy smile that resides on my face
whenever you decide that you're coming around
and when you're here time is flying
and I can never get enough
baby, is this how it feels to be in love?

II.
It's getting late
want a star to wish upon
don't go away
you keep me safe inside your arms
what a surprise that I'm falling
my world is revolving around you

Bridge:
feels like I'm walking up on air
playing this game of truth or dare
kiss me and let them stop and stare
I don't care

Track Name: HONESTLY (Original YouTube​/​Acoustic version)
Honestly
(polinar)

Intro.
I never felt this way before
I never thought I was capable
but here I am

Oh, you came so suddenly
And I didn't know what took over me
And what's unfair is...
Is that i'm here and you're there

I.
Tell me how you've been
want to see your face again
'cause I'm missing you

Oh it's been a while
last time my heart felt a smile
It's yearning for you

Honestly, your love completes me
completely

Chorus:
You are, you are
My light when there is only dark
you've been, you've been
the one I just can't be apart
with you, with you
I know I'll never feel alone
Someday, someday
I know we'll be together soon 'cause

Honestly, your love completes me
completely

II.
No one else can compare
time and time again you take me there
high above the clouds
when I don't hear your voice
my spirit's low I have choice
can't keep lying to myself

Honestly, your love completes me
completely

(chorus 2x)

Track Name: NEVER CHANGE (Original YouTube/Acoustic version)
“NEVER CHANGE” [LYRICS]
composed & written by: Melissa Polinar
©2010 all rights reserved.

I.)
There is a place where both of us belong
But as of now we just have to be strong
To keep going
moving forward even when only echoes answer back

II.)
There’s a horizon behind the farthest line
Where the ocean and land meet the sky
don’t be blinded by the lies
be reminded
just look into my eyes they’ll say (that)

I – I love you always
I’ll love you even when your heart breaks
All you do is call
I will help you fly when you fall
I – I’ll never leave you
I won’t let the sun set without me right by you
All you do is call on my name
This world may but my love will never change

III.)
We’ll find the light when the candle burns out
I won’t let us lose what this fire is all about
Looking at you wounded
Helplessly weighted
Know this even when you just can’t feel it…

[bridge]
My love will grow with seasons’ change
We’ll weather through every phase
And I’ll probably make some mistakes
But nothing can stop me now ‘cause from here on out…
Track Name: TRY (Original YouTube​/​Acoustic version)
TRY
(polinar)

I.
There's something about you
the way you move, the way you look at me
There's something about the way you see things
its like a change of scenery
Everything about you, I just want more of

but don't get any closer
if this will last a little longer
There's a chance I'll find myself saying (there's)

Chorus:
nothing, nothing i can do
to keep my heart away from you
i can't help it
i can't tell you how much i try

...to get you off my mind
to help me move on and just live my life
I can't help it
I can't tell you how much I try

('cause) whenever you're near
its love that i fear

II.
i've been in this shell
and I can't tell if I'm living at all
I've been doing well on my own
but maybe its just me who I'm deceiving
Everything about me, leads right to you

oh, I want to get closer
but let me doubt a little longer
'till i turn it over and give in ('cause)

Bridge:
fear of falling so helplessly
fear of losing, losing control
Track Name: I'M READY (Original YouTube/acoustic version)
"I'm Ready"
(polinar/cash)

Feels like there's no tomorrow
breathing in, breathing out gets harder
playing this guessing game
leaves me all alone
where am i to go?

don't know what signs to follow
trying to keep myself together
sweet dreams i harbored didn't last for long
this can't go on

chorus:
i'm ready to try falling apart
right into your arms
i'm ready for you to take my heart
and tell me that i am yours
then i'll be alright
there's no turning back
i'm ready this time

I just don't know what's coming
i was unprepared but now i'm
tyring to fight grain
of who i don't want to be
so help me to see

bridge:
the past is gone
from every right and wrong
and you're behind it all
i'm tasting complete surrender
from now on i will remember you
Track Name: OFF GUARD (YouTube/Acoustic Version)
"Off-Guard"
(polinar)

everybody says you're amazing
tell me what I don't know and
what I love about you is you're real

everyday I think that I'm dreaming
where did all the rain go
and its taking me awhile to see what's real

i had my head down
but when you came around
I knew there was life ahead
beyond what's in front of me

chorus:
hey now
thought i had it all figured out
but honey, you caught me off guard
and I had all these walls
ready to push you out
but honey, you caught me
caught me off guard

I never needed a rescue
not a dame in distress
'cause all I want is a love I can see-through
sweet-nothings are nothing
when there's absolutely nothing
for me to hold on to

i had my head down
but when you came around
I knew there was life ahead
beyond what's in front of me

bridge:
i'm tired of pretending
I'm slowly comprehending
I want to...I want to be with you

Track Name: SKYLINE (Original YouTube​/​Acoustic version)
SKYLINE
(polinar)

we've all been there before
still craving for more
then we pretend we have enough to breathe
keep wearing the mask
someday it won't last
this stage will have a final curtain call
we keep on dancing when the music plays
just hoping to keep going everyday

Chorus:
don't you dare and stop until you find
the sweetest sound hanging by the skyline
lay it down and leave it all behind
we're strolling under love's sunshine
singing "night is ending one day we'll all be fine"

remember the past
know all this will pass
The future only comes
when we rest in presents hands
we can never be too sure
life is crazy even when we swore
we should never walk so insecure
we keep on dancing as the music plays
just hoping to keep going everyday

Bridge:
we keep the rhythm as the music fades
slow dancing when moon shines at your face

Track Name: MY DEAR (Melissa Polinar)
MY DEAR
(polinar/cowell)
©2011 all rights reserved.

I.
There comes a time
when all the games get old
and all the thrill they have are gone
tired of the run around
and there comes a time when
you just want to feel love's sweet sound
cliche but I love you
so glad that I found you

CHORUS:
when the days get long
i long to be right next to you
when the nights were cold
the thought of you pulls me through
but right now i'm just glad you're here
I'm just glad you're here, my dear
don't ever leave my side


II.
being with you in not a waste
happily ever after is our fate
you've been the one that i've been looking for
so glad i found you
cliche but i love you
Track Name: Embrace Hope (acoustic version 2012)
EMBRACE HOPE
(polinar)

Staring at the ground
Instead of looking ahead
Heavy shoulders keep weighing you down
like all of us travelers, traveling along
weariness, loneliness won't leave us alone

like seasons they come and go
though at times they linger
like water poured on my hands
and dripping through my fingers
all these things will pass us by

LET GO, EMBRACE HOPE
LET GO OF ALL OF YOUR FEARS
AND ERASE ALL THOSE TEARS
LET GO, EMBRACE HOPE
ONE DAY PEACE WILL FIND YOU WHERE YOU ARE
AND REALIZE HOME IS NOT THAT FAR
SO JUST LET GO, EMBRACE HOPE

Nothing's for sure when doubt gets around
you can't help but feel so unsure
good thing there's faith and
good thing there is love
there is strength in the journey to come

like listening to a sweet, soft, and tender whisper
like standing tall in the midst of rain under a shelter
better days are on the way
