Original “songs” written for Remember Me This Way

Here are the songs I wrote up in my head for Remember Me This Way.

Calling Out To You
(from the new group album at the beginning of the story where Nick forgets the lyrics)
Your soul it calls to me
I’m trapped here in the night
Only you can set me free
If only you can hear my voice

As the world turns its back on me
And I lose all self control…
I see the darkness head my way
Only you can save my soul…”

So I’m calling out to you…
You can save me as I fall
Now I stand here, hear my call
I’m calling out to you
I’m calling out to you
I’m calling out to you…

I know my time’s come to an end
Unless you find your way to me
Then we’ll begin again
A life renewed because of you

As I watch myself crumble down
I see your face, I need you near
For I’m abandoned by the world
So please come save me from it all
Please come saaaaaave me

Because only you can save my soul

So I’m calling out to you
You can save me as I fall
Now I stand here, hear my call
I’m calling out to you
I’m calling out to you
I’m calling out to you

Family Reunion
(written for Nick’s solo album)
You watch on TV and you think you know
But baby, baby, you have no idea
Not until you’re part of the crazy
Then maybe you’ll see the fun
Of the family reunion

Then you’ll get the picture
Of how it all came out this way
Why I do the things I do
After this you’ll finally see
Why I’m such a fucked up me

Yelling, screaming, here we go again
Just another day at the family reunion
Do they hate me?
Do they love me?
I don’t think I wanna know anymore

Two parents who put us always in the middle
Choose one of us! They scream each night
Five kids to feed with all their needs
Parents don’t work but that’s okay
Little Nicky’s always here to save the day

Money’s the only love there is
Fame’s the only attention you see
One dollar, two dollars, three dollars, four
Oops I meant kids…
Walking out the door

Yelling, screaming, here we go again
Just another day at the family reunion
Do they hate me?
Do they love me?
I don’t think I wanna know anymore

I wonder if I’m ever anything more
Then a way to get those bills out the door

Yelling, screaming, here we go again…
Just another daaaaay…
Just another daaaaay…
At the family reunion
Do they love me?
Do they hate me?
I don’t give a damn anymore.

Forget Me Not
(written for Nick’s solo album “I Did It For You”)
I know it’s not fair
I know it’s not right
To abandon the world
With no reason why

Just know when I’m gone,
When I think back to us,
I know the tears will come.
Memories will fade with time
But the pain never stops

Will you be able to think of me
And all we’ve been through
Will you keep me in your heart…
Even if I won’t do it for you?

When I leave this life behind
And I go this whole new way
Will you remember me some day
And forget me not…
Forget me not…

After it’s all said and done…
And I’ve gone so far away…
Can you keep me in your heart
And forget me not…
Forget me not

Thrill Ride

(written for Nick’s solo album, his final performance)
So you you wanna be famous
You’re looking for that rush that comes along
Well come along with me baaaby
And I’ll give you one Hollywood Style

Welcome to lifestyles of the rich and famous
That’s the American dream
Nothing’s as it appears, nothing’s as it seems
You can’t see the darkness within
It’s a world of glitz and glamour
One run by corruption and sin…

It’s alright you’re safe with me baby
Come with me on the ultimate thrill ride

You looking for a thrill
You wanna go on that ride
Well come along with me baby,
I’ll give you one Hollywood Style

Hollywood will suck your soul
That’s the price of fame
You give up yourself
And they grant you your dreams
Now the dream gone nightmare’s fovever alive
On this fucked up Hollywood Thrill Ride…

But it’s alright you’re safe with me baby
Come with me on the ultimate thrill ride

You looking for a thrill
You wanna go on that ride
Well come along with me baby,
I’ll give you one Hollywood Style

You try to escape, to break away free
You want to live, you want to just be
It’s never gonna happen…they own your soul
For every dream granted, you gave them control…
Did you love it?
Was it worth it?
Did you enjoy the thrill…

It’s alright you’re safe with me baby
Come with me on the ultimate thrill ride…

It’s alright you’re safe with me baby
Come with me on the ultimate thrill ride…

I’m gonna escape
I’m gonna survive…
So come on you’re safe with me baby…

On this ultimate Hollywood Thrill Ride…
