12 Stars (2016)
By Grace VanderWaal

They drifted away
but she wants to stay
even though she knows his feelings will never change
She waits and she waits, just to hear her name
and those three words that mean everything

But deep down she’s aware that
that’s something she’ll never hear
and deep down she’s aware that that’s something that’ll never reach her ears

So go ahead and kill me
as long as he is safe
and go ahead and shoot me as long as I can see his face
when I’m gone.

She sees his face, every day
and maybe one day he’ll say that I’ve always felt “that” way
But deep down she’s aware that, that’s something she would never hear
and deep down she’s aware that that’s something that’ll never reach her ears

So and go ahead and kill me, as long as he is safe
Go ahead and shoot me, as long as I can see his face
when I’m gone.
When I’m gone.
When I’m gone.

The Differences are the Point (2016)
By Grace VanderWaal and Dylan Kelehan

Disclaimer: The below transcription is based on this article and cross-referenced against recordings of the three occasions on which it was performed: Beanrunner Café, Ramapo Concert and Lafayette Theatre.

What a nice day it is today
You say to me
Behind the glass things hide behind that
You cannot see
Runny noses, bumblebees,
Ticks hiding in the trees,
Pollen blowing in the breeze,
Can’t you see?
(Can’t you see?)
Crying kids, Cracked up knees,
Can I go inside now please?
Summer’s just begun
When will it be done?

Just another season here
I don’t think that it’s very fair that
When winter comes around
Nobody ever seems to come back
Ooh

Doo dadoo da doo doo doodoodoo doodoodoo
Door dadoo da doodoodoodoo doo dadoo
Da doodoodoo doo doo doodoodoo

But I guess that blue warmth sure
Beats the cold
The sun can be good for you
Or so I am told
Butterflies are pretty neat,
Kids are playing in the street,
The sunburn when you don’t got sun screen
(Sun screen)
Bugs are biting me all day,
But not when I have spray
Summer’s just begun
And I’ll admit it’s kinda fun

Just another season here
I don’t think that it’s very fair that
When winter comes around
Nobody ever seems to come back
Ooh

It’s so nice I can finally swim inside the pool
When it gets too hot
We can go inside with the a\\c and be cool
(A two, three, four)
There’s no school
I can sleep through my alarm clock
(BEEP!)
And the ice cream man is on his way
(His way)
Camping trips, Fishing lines,
Havin’ totally awesome times
Summer’s just begun
I don’t want it to be done

Just another season here
And I’m starting to like the fresh air
When winter comes around
Everybody seems to frown
It’s not just the
season or the situation
I’m getting excited for summer vacation
The differences are the point

The Good Just Gets Better (2016)
By Grace VanderWaal

You think that you know everything to know about the world
But let me tell you now, you’re just a little girl
There’s much more to come
You can’t give up now
College exams and high school boyfriends
Just getting by for the rent

So we’ll take it one step at a time
Don’t be nervous you’ll be fine
We’ll get through this together
you and me
So we’ll take it one step at a time
Don’t be nervous you’ll be just fine
We’ll get through this together
you and me

‘Cause i believe you can
So please just take my hand
And we will get through this together
’cause the good just gets better

Sure you’ll have your off days and your heartbreaks
Ice cream is the best medicine for mistakes

So we’ll take it one step at a time
Don’t be nervous you’ll be fine
We’ll get through this together
you and me
So we’ll take it one step at a time
Don’t be nervous you’ll be fine
We’ll get through this together
you and me

’cause i believe you can
So please just take my hand
And we will get through this life together
because the good…

So keep pushin’ through it, you can do it,
We will find a way out
Hours into seconds
Seconds
So please, just make every one of them count

So we’ll take it one step at a time
Don’t be nervous you’ll be fine
We’ll get through this together
you and me
So we’ll take it one step at a time
Don’t be nervous you’ll be fine
We’ll get through this together
you and me

‘Cause i believe you can
So please just take my hand
And we will get through this life together
because the good just gets better…

Unfixable Minds (2017)
By Grace VanderWaal

Unfixable minds
that’s how I explain you and I
Lost in the dark
just gotta find where you are

Unfixable minds
are the only ones who can fix
unfixable hearts
just like mine

Oh
Whoooooa
oh, no no no no no No

Unfixable minds
are the only ones who can fix
unfixable hearts
just like mine

Basketball Boy (2018)
By Grace VanderWaal

Your smile, it looks fine
You wear your cap sideways all the time
I don’t wanna be, wanna be, wanna be
an official thing, official thing, official thing

You’re the basketball boy boy boy boy boy
You trip and fall in your corduroy-roy-roy roys
You’re sweet, not too smart, but you got a lot to say say say say
Maybe I’ll met the basketball boy again one day.

I hope no one knows this is you
because that would be kind of embarrassing when I go back to school
Maybe I won’t release, won’t release, won’t release
like this little thing, little thing, little thing

’cause you are the basketball boy boy boy boy boy
You trip and fall in your corduroy-roy-roy roys
You’re sweet, not too smart, but you got a lot to say say say say
Maybe I’ll met the basketball boy again one day.

Maybe this could be something (2018)
By Grace VanderWaal

Disclaimer: the lyrics below are based on this edit of the livestream where she performed this song, and on the transcription posted in the video description.

I have dreams
that I hope you’ll meet
I could explain them to you along with all of my hopes and dreams
The wood in my house, I like the smell
and the buzzing outside makes me feel right at peace

And I hope I don’t scare you off like everybody else
But I promise if you give me a chance I will just be myself

‘Cause maybe this could be something
Maybe you could see something
in me that no one else has ever cared to find or see

Maybe this could be something
Maybe you could see something
in me that no one else has ever cared to find or see
to see
Oooh

When I go outside
I like the grass
makes my lungs feel clean and put me at peace for the time to pass
Maybe you could be the same
That’s one of my dreams
that you and me could be more similar than we both would think

And I hope I don’t scare you off like everybody else
But I promise if you give me a chance I could just be myself

Maybe this could be something
Maybe you could see something
in me that no one else has ever cared to find or see

Maybe this could be something
Maybe you could see something
in me that no one else has ever cared to find or see

‘Cause the future is coming, and it’s coming fast
And it’s going so slow at the same time it won’t just pass
And I hope and I hope and I dream and I pray
that you will give me a chance unlike all the others to see who I really am

Maybe this could be something
Maybe I could see something
in you that you thought no one else would ever care to find or see

Maybe this could be something
Maybe na na na na na na
no one else could ever care to find or see

Maybe this could be something
Maybe you could see something
in me that no one else has ever cared to find or see

Maybe this could be something
Maybe you could see something
in me that no one else has ever cared to find or see
find or see

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

You'll Get Bored (2019)
By Grace VanderWaal

Disclaimer: Grace has only performed this song once, and due to temporary audio equipment trouble, some of the lyrics are hard to work out. Our transcription below is based in large part on efforts from our friends at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UJmBEEMAOs)

Tonight I’ve been taking all my feelings apart
( Don’t know how they speak English properly no matter who they are ???)
I look at you and tell you that I’m feeling you out
And I think you’re just getting bored of me now

And everybody says that there’s such things as second chances
but in life you just take what you get.
When I look at you it feels like it will be forever
But who knows if we’ll meet again

Ooh I’ll make you laugh.. I’ll make you feel a special way
With only me, with only me, you’ll want to spend your every day
Ooh I’ll give my all, all of my energy
but no matter what, no matter what, you’ll just get bored of me

I’m mad, because you speak so easily to everyone
Please stop putting yourself out there …???… and just hear me for once
Stop listening to your mama when she gets in your head, Turn off her voice and just talk
Listen to my words …???… your eyes will let you see that

Ooh I’ll make you laugh.. I’ll make you feel a special way
With only me, with only me, you’ll want to spend your every day
Ooh I’ll give my all, all of my energy
but no matter what, no matter what, you’ll just get bored of me

I give my heart I give my soul
I get attached and then they go
I play my part, I play the role
Maybe I should hide away so that they’ll never know

Ooh I’ll make you laugh.. I’ll make you feel a special way
With only me, with only me, you’ll want to spend your every day
Ooh I’ll give my all, all of my energy
but no matter what, no matter what, you’ll just get bored of me
