Lyrics


I Remember You

Waiting for the clock at midnight
One more second and it’s gone.
It’s gone
Crazy what this life can deal us
And that somehow we move on
We move on
Braced myself this morning
Laying flowers at your stone 
At your stone

Chorus:
I remember looking back
Laughing at the mess we left behind
Running with you by my side
Holding ourselves high
Running never looking back
This is how I remember you
This is how I remember you

Spending those last days with you
Time, it seemed to move so slow
So slow
Missing you thinking of you
Makes it hard to let you go
Let you go
Braced myself this morning
One more year that you’ve been gone
You’ve been gone

B section
Promises
Sworn till the end of time
Swear I’ll be keeping mine
Golden Light
Shrouds you in innocence
Forever you’ll be my love

Moments we lived together
Floating like dandelions
Living, breathing on the summer winds
Wishing you could take me with you
Dreaming that we last forever
Waiting, knowing I’ll see you again

Wasteland

Jet set wings are blowing east
Out of my mind onto the beat
The beating of my heart

Open your eyes, swallow the light
The world explodes for your delight
The lighting of your mind

Chorus:
And if I fall
into the wasteland
jump in follow me
on this dreamer’s cloud
and if I fall 
into the wasteland
don’t bother catching me
just let me be

Raindrops fall, a newborn cries
An old man closes his tired eyes
That have seen it all

An empty shore, a starry night
Whispers all the thoughts I have inside
Inside my war torn mind

Chorus: 3 times

A Secret Love


Have I failed u now
When you’re looking back
When it’s said and done
Was it all that bad
It was a cloudy night
Sitting in your jeep



B-section
Imagination rules the mind
Living here until we die

Chorus
Memory – You’ll always be my hero
I’ll always be your girl
It’s us against the world
Memory – You’ll always be my hero
I’ll always be your girl
It’s us against the world

It was a simple song
About a secret love
Sheltered from the storm
Living in the dark
You never wanted much
We never said the words
Silently you just held onto me

B-section


Chorus


Bridge
I gave you all I had
Well all that I had left
I can see it now; wasn’t all that much
More like crumbs in an empty sack
And if you wanted more
You never thought to ask
And so it slipped away as we fade away
But now the memories…


Chorus
Chorus

I’ll always be yours
You’ll always be mine
Never forget it until the end of time
Never forget it until the end of time
Never forget

Ghost Town

Ooh this ice feels good in my hands
Can’t seem to beat the summer heat
Frying here beside you on the floor
Sweat dripping down to our feet

Talking about the plans we’ve made
Big ol house with central air
Front porch for the rainy days
A pile of bills but we won’t care

Blazing sun is stopped at noon for hours
We can’t think of one damn thing to say
Everything we promised was just dirt
Now I’m too tired to walk away

Talking about the plans we made
Hand in hand on some tropic shore
But something’s always in our way
Guess it don’t matter any more
Anymore!

Chorus:
And this feels like a ghost town
Feels like a ghost town
And this feels like a lonely breakdown
Feels like a ghost town

Thermostat must be stuck on hell
Heat blisters on these empty streets
Squeaky fan, it wobbles round and round
Sweat raining down on our feet

What about those plans we made
Said with eyes so sincere
Built a house from blood and stone
Now I can’t stand it staying here

Chorus:
Chorus:

I Wanna Love You

I wanna love you
Love you harder
Love you better than you’ve ever been

I wanna kill that hunger
I wanna drown that fire
Promise everything will be alright

I wanna kiss you
I wanna kiss you harder
Kiss you better than you’ve ever been

I wanna snuff that liar
Murder desire
Tell you everything will be alright

I die when you’re not around
Crave for you in the dark
I don’t listen; they tell me you’re a mistake
Bare my soul give me more than my mind can take
All I know is I’m happier when you stay
Happy when you stay

Chorus:
Don’t pretend we’re enemies
I can feel you watching me
Don’t pretend your heart is free
I will love you desperately
No way out now that you’re mine
Together we’re one of a kind

I wanna love you 
I wanna love you harder
Love you better than you’ve ever been

I wanna suck you under
Tear down that thunder
Promise everything will be alright

I die when you’re not around
Crave for you in the dark
I don’t listen they tell me you’re a mistake
Bare my soul give me more than my mind can take
All I know is I’m happier when you stay
Happy when you stay

Chorus
I wanna love you
Love you harder
Love you better than you’ve ever been
Kill that hunger
Drown that fire
Promise everything will be alright
I wanna kiss you
Kiss you harder
Kiss you better than you’ve ever been
Snuff that liar
Murder desire
Tell you that everything will be alright

Chase My Blues Away

Coffee tastes bitter
Wallet’s getting thinner
Wasting away with my thoughts of you
Stuck in the mud on what else I can do
Dishes piling higher
Clothes still hanging on the wire
Friends are wondering if I’m okay
Tell me no tears, just let him walk away
Ooh…. Like my mama used to say
A little bit of sunshine 
To chase my blues away

Smiles turn bitter
Hope is getting thinner
Think back to every little word you said
Give me a clue to help me clear my head
Looks are getting bolder
Whispers getting louder
Asking how I can still love you
Why I still leave the light on at night for you
Ooh….. Like my mama used to say
A little bit of sunshine
A little bit of sunshine 
To chase my blues away

You never loved me the way you should
A quiet distance in the way you stood
Closed my eyes to everything I knew 
What’s it say that I still fight for you? 
Three months I’ve been waiting on you
Keep on thinking somehow maybe baby you’ll come through
Like a fool I…. Like a fool I
Still believe in you. 

Coffee taste bitter
Wallets getting thinner
Wasting away with my thoughts of you
Stuck in the mud on what else I can do
Ooo…Like my mama used to say
A little bit of sunshine, A little bit of sunshine

Whiskey turned sour
I’m dying by the hour
Wait for the start of a brand new day
Pray for the heartache to fade away
Nights are getting colder
This stories getting older
I need to bury my thoughts of you
I know there’s nothing else that I can do
Like my mama used to say, Like my mama used to say
A little bit of sunshine, A little bit of sunshine
To chase my blues away, to chase my blues away
To chase my blues away, to chase my blues away

It’ll Be Alright

Sippin my coffee, tried to shake off the night
Ten years have passed since I took up this fight
And I keep showing up, but it’s taking so long
Got all that I am stacked like chips on the line
Just a turn of that wheel and I’ll get it this time
Sometimes at night it’s hard to be strong

I used to lie back at home in my bed
Wishing that I could see what was ahead
And I just had to get out of that little town
If I said that I missed it well you know that I lied
Whoa can’t help thinking of the simpler times
When we would run catching fireflies
Catching fireflies

Rap Section:
White lines they remind me
All those miles I’ve put behind me
2 ounces pours that blew my mind
Starless skies that let me fly
Careless nights and walks of shame
Silhouettes that have no name
Aching hearts and tattered dreams
Lights so hot they make you scream

Chorus:
Just called to say
I’ll be alright
To hear your voice
Been a long, long time
To know you’re there
I’ll be alright
Been dreaming this
Whole long way

B-section
You, you help me hold on
One more day
You, you help me hold on
One more day

Chorus:
The city awakes to the horns and the hum
Got this image of you that helps me get along
Where the green fields sway in the setting sun
I try to keep smiling through the sticks and the stones
And when I hear your voice it’s like my favorite song
I can do no wrong. I can do no wrong.

Rap Section:
Action starts to roll
Sends a ripple thru my soul
Like honey on my trembling lips
Lightning down my finger tips
Soulless smiles and empty eyes
Never get to see me cry
Get me hot and sticky sweet
Nights so bright they make you scream

Chorus:

B-section
Help me hold on
You help me hold on
One more day

Give It All Away

Is anybody out there
Can anybody see
All that life has given 
But it can’t feel me
In the middle of the storm
At the center of the eye
Asking for forgiveness
I tell another lie

B Section
Throw it all to the wind
Take me where you will
Call it reckless abandon
I hope you get your fill
Call it reckless abandon
I hope you get your thrill

Chorus
Hey, Hey, Hey – I give it all a…
Way, way, way – Ca..ca..ca come on
Hey, Hey, Hey – I give it all a…
Way, way, way – Get your thrill
Hey, Hey, Hey – I give it all away

Punching into the wind
Hair flying wild
Settle down now, now, now
Little demon child
Take a look at me now
Tell me what do you see
Flash of gold in the distant sunrise
Buried deep in the sea

B section

Chorus

Bridge
Shudder with the rush
Quiver in delight
The throb of madness
Echoes through the night
Light and dark
Black and white
Lust and love
Wrong and right
Call it reckless abandon
I hope you get your thrill
Little demon child
Take a look at me now

Chorus

Killing Time

Wandered off again last night 
Didn’t have a place to go 
Just looking for a reason 
Or anyone to let me know

I saw the faces in the windows 
All the voices filled the dark 
Felt the humming of the city 
As I sat down in the park

Chorus:
Man this world seems so busy 
We’re all running down that line 
Some flashes show me some brilliance 
That for a moment seems sublime 
I just can’t help but wonder 
When I wander in my mind 
Whether any of this matters 
And if we’re all just killing time
And if we’re all just killing time 
And if we’re all just killing time

Guess I’m cool with hanging out 
Love telling folks my plans
Guess I’m cool with hanging out 
Love telling folks my plans
It’s just the way I am

I feel bigger in the telling 
Than I ever really am
I feel bigger in the telling 
Than I ever really am
I feel bigger in the telling 
Than I ever really am

Wandered off again last night 
Didn’t have a place to go 
Just looking for a reason 
Or anyone to let me know

I saw the faces in the windows 
All the voices filled the dark 
Felt the humming of the city 
As I sat down in the park

Chorus – twice

Love is Gone

Can’t stand all the words of cynics
If it talks tell me don’t believe it
It’s too good to be true
Just when I thought the game behind me
Show the proof, Oh you remind me
I never left it at all

That night away
Made you wanna play
Worth the pain just to have your way
Take a moment to stall
I couldn’t see it all
Thought I was what you wanted

Chorus:
I know that the love is gone
You don’t have to tell me that I need to
Move on and on and on
I hear every word you say
I know that the love is gone
I know you think she’s the one
What is done is done is done
I know that the love is gone

Think back to stories you told me
Pull down the part ’til I see
Where it all went wrong
Maybe I should have seen it
Maybe I could have fixed it
Maybe I knew all along

That night away, make it go away
Tell me your love never went astray
Give me nothing at all
I’m where you belong
Thought I was what you wanted

Chorus

Bridge
I can see it in your eyes
No longer shine
Make a wish
Now it’s do or die

Move on
No one’s trying to tell you
Hold On
Leave me please believe I’ll 
Roll on
You don’t have to tell me
All the reasons you don’t love me
Anymore

Chorus

Behind the Magic

Gotta make some trouble
Throw a kink in the plan
Can’t let the dust settle
Or listen to this man
Fear drives us all to worship
What we can’t understand
We clothe our fear in rituals
Plant our heads into the sand
We clothe our fear in rituals
Plant our heads into the sand

Chorus
Feels like we’re living on an island
Shouting lies into the sea
Curiosity – Curiosity is human, don’t you see
We try to find our way
Beyond the magic that we see

I used to know the answers
Now I’m not so sure
Politician’s slogans
Preachers calling down the cure
Certainty is dangerous
Too much you lose your mind
Fools rushing in to offer
All the ways to lead the blind
Fools rushing in to offer
All the ways to lead the blind

Chorus

The world was never flat
Like they thought back in the day
If what’s beneath your bed
Won’t let you sleep tonight
Go on and say your prayer
Until the morning brings the light
The world was never flat
Like they thought back in the day
Day Day
Like they thought back in the day

Outro:
If what’s beneath your bed
Won’t let you sleep tonight
Go on and say your prayer
Until the morning brings the light
The world was never flat
Like they thought back in the day
If what’s beneath your bed
Won’t let you sleep tonight
Go on and say your prayer, prayer
Go on and say your prayer
Go on and say your prayer
Go on and say your prayer, prayer
Go on and say your prayer
Go on and say your prayer
Until the morning brings the light

Catch Me If I Fall

I hear you whispering
Trouble biting to the core
Brace your back and board the doors
The devil’s on the shore
City lights they look so bright
Like pretty boys that smile
Running fast against the wind
You run with all your might

Chorus:
I‘m staring at the edge
Half of me is gone
Looking for a place to call my own
I need to fly away
Just too proud to stay
I only hope you’ll catch me if I fall

I had a dream last night
The ones that make you small
Raging proud against the sky
But no one heard me call
Standing on the edge of days
Is this the price we pay?
Listen as the caution sounds
Then throw them all away

Chorus:

Bridge:
Holding on to memories
Cause the pictures always fade
Once a castle in the sun
Now I’m shivering in the shade
Staring at the edge
Half of me is gone 
Looking for a place to call my own
I need to fly away
I’m just too proud to stay
I only hope you’ll catch me
Ooo…

Chorus:
I hope you catch me
Just too proud to stay
Oooo…Catch me if I fall
Ooo…
Catch me if I fall
Half of me is gone
Catch me if I fall
I need to fly away
Just too proud to stay
