Josh Damigo - Make You Love Me
 I don't know where we'll be
 I don't know what it is
 I don't know what I'll do 
 When I'll earn our first kiss
 I don't know how you'll fall
 I don't know quite how long
 I don't know what I'll do
 To get to live life with you 
 But one thing I know for sure
 Is one day I'll find a way
 To get into your heart
 To get in to your heart
 Someday I
 I will write the perfect song
 to get to hold you all night long
 You can finally be my love
 Someday I will make you see
 Baby you belong with me
 Someday I will do something
 to make you fall in love me
 Maybe I'll make you laugh
 Maybe he'll make you cry
 Maybe you'll stop and think
 That maybe I'm here for life
 Maybe I'll pick you up
 Maybe we'll go downtown
 Maybe we'll get to talk
 Till there's nobody else around
 (CHORUS)

 Baby, I know that you are scared
 And I baby I know you're unprepared
 Baby know what you've been through

 And maybe you'll find another man
 Who thinks he can love you like I can
 We both know he can't
 We both know he can't

Josh Damigo - Every Night I think I’m finally getting over you I think I’ve finally beaten all of this I think I’m good to just move along now I think I’m good to find a new girl to kiss I’ve got it down to the perfect science I don’t allow myself to say your name And I remember, to forget you Almost every single minute of my day Cause I only think about you if the sun comes up I only start to miss you when I need to breathe I only stop and wonder what we could have been Every night before I sleep I think I’m finally getting over you You barely ever even cross my mind I can write a song without putting you in it Even sing of other girls sometimes I’ve got it down to the perfect art form I cross my t’s and I dot my I’s Tell all my friends I’m not thinking of you They don’t even seem to notice me lie (Chorus) I don’t care about what you’re doing I don’t imagine that you’re coming back I don’t wonder if you ever miss me No, I don’t care about none of that

Josh Damigo - Don’t Lose Hope Every one has time when they have to face their fears But they’d rather disappear And the world can feel so cold No one seems to care that it’s been a long year But there’s something that keeps us strong Cause when all the light is gone There’s bound to be a better day around the bend If you swing enough, You’ll land a few punches If you try enough, you’re bound to hit something Maybe You’re looking at a great big mountain, Maybe You’re missing better things all around you You’ll never know if you don’t keep trying And you’ll never grow if you don’t keep fighting All I know, Is you can’t lose hope You can’t lose hope Sometimes in your life It’s like your walking by yourself And no one stops to help And no one even knows The pain within your heart And you can’t make it stop But Don’t let them get you down Stay strong and hold your ground Cause you can be anything, Yeah you can do anything Everything, Happens for a reason But don’t lose Heart, Keep on holding on

Josh Damigo - If I Had a Dollar If I had a dollar I'd spend it all on you and I'd buy you all the things That you've grown accustomed to Cause If I had a dollar I'd waste every cent on you But until I have a dollar I hope my heart will do If I had a quarter Well, I'd take you to the mall Let you try on all the dresses You'd look so pretty in 'em all Cause If I had a quarter I'd waste every cent on you But until I get a quarter I hope my heart will do I hope my heart will do Cause It's all I have I know it isn't much And I know it's not that big but you're written on my soul And you're my every breath So I hope my heart will do Cause It's all I have If I had a nickel I'd put a big smile on your face I'd buy you tons of ice cream From your favorite place Cause If I had a nickel I'd waste every drop to you Until I have a nickel Well I hope my Heart will do

Josh Damigo - Alright I’mma be Okay, Gonna Be alright. My roommate just hit the lottery Now he says he don’t remember me Boxed up every thing I had and more Gave it all away to the Goodwill store I can feel today is gonna be a real bad day But I know, I’m gonna be alright (Alright) I’mma be A-Okay Ain’t Nobody’s gonna chase my sun away I’mma be Alright I’mma do Just fine Gonna leave all of my troubles and cares behind I’mma be okay Gonna be alright My girl just ran off with my best friend And now they asked me to be their best man I Just watched my car get repossessed And I hear there’s a reward for my arrest (Chorus) Waiting at the restaurant for my date Checkin my watch cause she’s running late But, It’s all good, I’ll order a drink An hour and a half go by and I start to think That I’ve been stood up, now that’s just wrong Never shoulda signed up for Match.com Now I’m on the verge of crying in my beer And inventing a drink called ‘Jack and tears” Next thing I know she’s calling me And asking for an apology Turns out, I was supposed to meet the girl from Eharmony Chorus 2x
6.
Josh Damigo - Slow Going You tell me that you’re gonna leave But that’s the last thing you could do to me Cause it’s a long walk to my door You tell me that you’re gonna go That I don’t know what my heart is for But I don’t believe Cause this thing is like a movie That plays out every night If I could I wouldn’t trade you for the stars in the sky Cause it’s slow Goin Cause it’s slow goin Yeah it’s slow goin When you get a love like mine I see you picking up my keys Actin like you’re gonna steal my jeep But I’m gonna call your bluff You see I know we both believe in love But it’s not easy for the two of us It’s just not in our stars Cause this thing is like a torture that we both kinda like If I could I wouldn’t trade you for the stars in the sky And I know all of your problems baby And you know all of mine But I could fill your prescription baby And fill it right every time

Josh Damigo - I Can’t Be Your Man Baby don’t you worry baby don’t you cry Don’t act like you haven’t known This for a while Girl we both know I’m just not what you need Baby, oh baby Don’t make a scene You need somebody Who will treat you right And baby oh Baby, you know That’s not me. Cause I Could be your lover I could be your friend I could hold you near me Take you by your hand I could kiss your lips Be your biggest fan Baby you know I could do all these things But I can’t be your man Your mama warned you About a street rat like me Who’s willing to hold you But the first one to leave You should have listened To all of your friends When they said, When they said That I’d leave Cause that’s what I did

Josh Damigo - So Far, So Good I never knew
That life could be beautiful
 Til there was you
There was no reason so
 Like it or not
 I think I'll stick around for awhile

 I never knew
That birds sang so sweetly
 Til there was you
They had no reason to
 Like it or not
I think I'll stick around for awhile

 I never dreamed
that love could feel like this
 Each time we touch
I swear my heart skips Because, So far
 I like what I'm seeing
 So far
 My mind's stuck on you
 So far
 I like how I'm feeling
 Because so far, It feels so good

 I never knew 
That love could be simple
 Till there was you
There was no reason so
 Like it or not
I think I'll stick around for a while
 I never thought
My heart could beat so fast
 Each time we touch
It's better than the last

 (Chorus)

 There are no words to say
 How amazing this feels
 I keep pinching myself
 To make sure you're real
10.
Josh Damigo - I’ll Have to Say I Love You in A Song Well I know it’s kinda late I hope I didn’t wake you But there’s something That I’ve just gotta say I hope you understand Every Time I’ve tried to tell you, The words just came out wrong So I’ll have to say I love you In a song Well I know it’s kinda strange But every time I’m near you I just run out of things to say I hope you understand Chorus Interlude Chorus
11.
Josh Damigo - LA is Not My Home Sirens, Stoplights
 Parties, all night Heat wave, and this road rage
 In this city of dropped names

 (Chorus) It's not for me
 Not where I belong
 There's one thing I know for sure LA is not my home Implants, spray tans
 And all these stuck up, rich men
 I’ve got these fake friends, that all shake hands
 But they’re just playin’ mind games

 (Chorus) It's not for me
 Not where I belong
 There's one thing I know for sure
 LA is not my home

 Bridge
 And I'm thinking it's time to leave
 Cause I'm forgetting who I used to be
 Yeah I'm thinking it's time to go
 Cause LA is not my home
12.
Josh Damigo - Just Let Me Love You I thought by now we'd have this figured out We’d have this all worked out But I guess I was wrong I thought by now we'd have this all sewn up We'd have this bleeding stopped But I guess I was wrong And here it comes again Just like this pouring rain I don't know when we'll see the sun (Chorus) Why are we doing this baby When I just want to love you crazy And do all the things that lovers are s’posed to do You go and start a fight But I just want to treat you right You should just, just let me love you We keep on playing these silly games Calling each other names And we both know it's wrong You locked yourself inside your room again And you won't let me in So the battle goes on And here it comes again You get to crying Why can't we just work it out (Chorus) Try as we may we just cant get it to work Try as we may all we do is hurt (Chorus)

Josh Damigo - Knock You Out
 Butch always steals my lunch
 Shakes me down when i get off the bus
 Well He's the meanest kid in school
 He cusses drinks and smokes and chews
 Well today i think he went too far
 Made jenny cry when he pulled on her hair
 I've had more than I can take
 I'd say that butch made a big mistake
 made a big mistake

 My knuckles gonna beat his face
 Then I'm gonna sweep the leg
 He'll go down like the walls of Jericho 
 I've never been one to fight
 But the big guy crossed the line
 I think it's time it's time that everybody knows

 That I'm going to knock you out

 The last thing that he's gonna see
 Are three little birds singing tweet tweet tweet
 Maybe see the moon and stars
 Wake up and wonder who the hell you are Who the hell you are Cuz I'll sting like a bee
 Dance around you like Ali
 And you'll go down like the walls of Jericho 
 You'll learn some respect
 When your big head hits the deck
 I think it's time I think it's time you know

 I'm gonna knock you out

 OOOO OOOO I know I may look small
 But inside I'm ten feet tall
 All you'll see is a little white bruce lee
 I took a taebo class
 Even though I didn't pass
 I learned enough to knock you off your feet

 I'm gonna knock you out

Josh Damigo - You Happened to Me I was good, No I was great I knew exactly what I wanted Or thought I did anyways There you are And here I am And there’s a candle in my heart That’s been lit again Could you believe that a guy like me Could be with a girl like you There’s a hole in my heart, But you fixed it I tried to push you away But you came back There’s this place inside Only you could reach I never knew there was goodness inside me Till you came like an angel to guide me And I can’t believe That you happened to me The Story goes That boy meets girl And they ride into the sunset At least that’s what I heard And all my plans I don’t know where they went But if you ever come across them Go ahead and lose them again (Chorus) I’ve waited all of my life To see who you were To know who you were I’ve waited all of this time To know who you were (Chorus)
15.
Josh Damigo - Never Gonna Let You Go You can take the life From all my veins You can take my strength And try to drag me away But I won’t go down without a fight No I won’t go down No, I’m never gonna let you go I’m never gonna let you go I’m never gonna let you go (2x) You can take my hands, and you can bind my feet You can take my chest, steal the air I breathe But I won’t go down, without a fight No I won’t go down (Chorus) And I would fight a hundred thousand men and I’d kill every one of them There are no one could hold me down There are no hands that could hold me back And I could be anything you want And I could be anything you need There is no one, There is No one There is No One There is no one (Chorus)
16.
Josh Damigo - Loving You is Killing Me I've told all my friends that I'm over you But like a puppy dog, I'd still follow you And I know I shouldn't love you, But how can I stop When you're all I that I need, and you're all that I want When I was with you, You took the best of me Now holding you only makes my heart bleed And I can't escape, You're in all of my dreams Baby, Loving You is Killing Me Now I can't sleep, I've been up for days And your memory, won't go away And I know I shouldn't love you, But how do I stop If you're all I need, and you're all I want When I was with you, You took the best of me But holding you only makes my heart bleed And I can't escape, You're in all of my dreams Baby, Loving You is Killing Me When I pull away, you won't let me leave Your secrets and lies are still haunting me With a smile on your face, you murder me When I was with you, You got the best of me But now holding you only makes my heart bleed And I can't escape, You're in all of my dreams Baby, Loving You is Killing Me
17.
Josh Damigo - Goodbye Lullaby 
 I said that I’d go And I meant what I said 
 Cause all of my loves songs 
 flew over your head You don’t believe 
 In a real boy like me 
 And know we’ll never know 
 How good this could be You think happy endings Are only in dreams 
 And flowers and butterflies 
 are just make believe And all of the stories 
 You’ve heard in the past 
 are just visions of Tinkerbell 
 and Neverland 
 So goodbye lullaby, goodbye 
 Goodbye, lullaby, goodbye 
 Goodbye, lullaby, goodbye 
 Goodbye, lullaby, goodbye Four steps away 
 but I’m outside your door 
 out into the night you’re in dream land once more 
 You’ll search all around 
 But I’ll never come back 
 Cause the something you miss 
 Is the love that you lack (Prechorus) (Chorus) And all of the doctors 
 They’ll never fix 
 The problems that come 
 From dreaming like this And all of the mothers lock windows and doors 
 So that their daughters 
 Can’t dream anymore
