Clearly (2018)
By Grace VanderWaal

There’s a world outside my door
I don’t know it anymore
I’m gonna stay here now
I’m gonna stay here now
Close the curtains, cut the lights
Match the darkness in my mind
It’s gonna take me down
It’s gonna take me down

All the roads I’ve been before
Same mistakes always got me shakin’
And all the signs I once ignored
In my denial, I didn’t want to face them

I can see clearly now
The rain has gone
I accept all the things that I cannot change
Gone are the dark clouds
The dawn has come
It’s gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day

There’s a world outside my door
I forced my feet down to the floor
I’m gonna make it out
I’m gonna make it out
Take a breath and say a prayer
Find the strength in my despair
It’s not gonna take me down
It’s not gonna take me down

All the roads I’ve been before
Same mistakes always got me shakin’
And all the signs I once ignored
In my denial, I didn’t want to face them

I can see clearly now
The rain has gone
I accept all the things that I cannot change
Gone are the dark clouds
The dawn has come
It’s gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day
It’s gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day

All the pain in my sorrow
Won’t change today, only ruin tomorrow
All the pain in my sorrow
Won’t change today, only ruin tomorrow

I can see clearly now
The rain has gone
I accept all the things that I cannot change
Gone are the dark clouds
The dawn has come
It’s gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day
It’s gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day

Stray (2019)
by Grace VanderWaal

I wanna write a song
One that can explain my lungs
I wanna write a song
That you can hear and…

Know how my heart yearns, and how my insides churn, and how my cheeks burn from the weekly
storm
And how my face turns before you return to the wall and then down the floor

But I keep only
Seeing rain
I will say no
But you keep crawling in my brain
I wanna get lost
Run away
In the dark
Is where I’ll stray

I gotta write a song
But I wanna feel my words
And I keep getting it all wrong
Think it out, write it out, rip it out, start all over ooh

And I keep only
Seeing rain
I will say no
But you keep crawling in my brain
I wanna get lost
Run away
In the dark
Is where I’ll…

I wanna feel the way I used to
I wanna move the way I used to groove
I wanna feel the way I used to
I wanna move the way I used to groove

But I keep only
Seeing rain
I keep saying no
But you’ll find your way into my brain
I wanna get lost
Run away
In the dark is where I

I keep only seeing rain
I will say no
But you keep crawling in my brain
I wanna get lost
Run away
In the dark
Is where I’ll stay

Wanna feel the way I used to
I wanna move the way I used to groove
I wanna feel the way I used to
I wanna feel the way I used to

Hideaway (2019)
by Grace VanderWaal

Let’s wrap a blanket ’round us
And go flyin’ into outer space
We could be famous, speak a different language
Make our great escape

I’ll chase the stars inside your eyes
And follow you into the great unknown
We’ll be alone

So let’s just play pretend and find a secret place
When the world around us says that we should act our age
The day is gonna come when there’s no time left to waste
But we’ll never grow up, I say we hide away

And build a city, something out of nothing
Make this place a home, a home
Stay make-believing, we’ll go disappearing
Who would ever know?

We’ll never be too far apart
‘Cause in the end, you and I both know
There’s somewhere we can go

So let’s just play pretend and find a secret place
When the world around us says that we should act our age
The day is gonna come when there’s no time left to waste
But we’ll never grow up, I say we hide away

Just want to hide away
Hide away, hide away
Hide away, hide away
We’ll never grow up
Just want to hide away
Hide away, hide away
Hide away, hide away

So let’s just play pretend and find a secret place
When the world around us says that we should act our age
The day is gonna come when there’s no time left to waste
But we’ll never grow up, I say we hide away

So let’s just play pretend and find a secret place
When the world around us says that we should act our age
The day is gonna come when there’s no time left to waste
But we’ll never grow up, I say we hide away
Don’t make me grow up, I say we hide away

Ur So Beautiful (2019)
By Grace VanderWaal

Lower East Side and it’s pouring out
Don’t you look right at me now
Is it you, or are the lights
getting brighter in the night?
Let’s get coffee at a vibey spot
We can sit around, I talk a lot
but you’re so chill, you keep it cool
I am not, I’m such a fool

Damn, you’re so beautiful
and don’t you know it?
Don’t you? Don’t you?
Don’t you? Don’t you?
Damn, you’re so beautiful
and don’t you know it?
Don’t you? Don’t you?
I think you do.

Walking along but not saying a thing
Let’s sit down and think of what we could be
If you wanted to say something
you would say it, promise me

Walking lightly to my surprise
Falling all over the fear
of looking in your eyes
But now I am questioning
I caught you looking at me

Damn, you’re so beautiful
and don’t you know it?
Don’t you? Don’t you?
Don’t you? Don’t you?
Damn, you’re so beautiful
and don’t you know it?
Don’t you? Don’t you?
I think you do.

And who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Messing with my eyes
make me overthink my lines
I think I’m falling blind

Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Not looking back to say goodbye
Is it all in my mind?
I think it’s all in my mind

Damn, you’re so beautiful
and don’t you know it?
Don’t you? Don’t you?
Don’t you? Don’t you?
Damn, you’re so beautiful
and don’t you know it?
Don’t you? Don’t you?
I think you do
Damn, you’re so beautiful
and don’t you know it?
Don’t you? Don’t you?
I think you do
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
I know you do
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
I think you do

Waste My Time (2019)
By Grace VanderWaal

Runnin’ with you it’s like we’re in a memory
That I’ll try to forget when you go up and leave
Walkin’ slowly because the time’s been running far
Maybe I should grow up, leave you with a scar

You say ‘I love you’ with an accent
Then I pretend like nothing happened
Tell me won’t you miss Manhattan
And even though this is pointless
And even though this is hopeless

I just wanna waste my time
I just wanna waste your time
We can do anything you like
We can talk all night

I’m unsure of you because I know you’ll leave
You say ‘you love me’ but I whisper I don’t believe
Stopping moments cause I can’t let it be true
This is going nowhere but I love wasting my time with you

You say ‘I love you’ with an accent
Then I pretend like nothing happened
Tell me won’t you miss Manhattan
And even though this is pointless
And even though this is hopeless

I just wanna waste my time
I just wanna waste your time
We can do anything you like
We can talk all night

Just waste my time
Waste your time

You say ‘I love you’ with an accent
And then I look away and acted like nothin’ happened
Tell me honestly will you miss Manhattan
And even though this is pointless
And even though this is hopeless

I just wanna waste my time
And I just wanna waste your time
We can do anything you like
We can talk all night, I’ll pretend you’re mine just waste my time

Waste…
And time will fly
…my time
Waste…
For you I’ll happily waste my time
…your time

Waste…
And time will fly
…my time
Waste…
For you I’ll happily waste my time
…your time
