blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange a walk on part in...
I can stay awake for days
If that's what you want
Be your number one
I can fake a smile
I can force a laugh
I can dance and play the part
If that's what you ask
Give you all I am
I can do it
I can do it
I can do it
But I'm only human
And I bleed when I fall down
morning, it's cold outside
I'm sitting here all alone
Pack my bags and leave this town
Cause if I stay I'll stay down
It's a long long way to reach for you
You appear in my dreams
And I pray that you exist
You're a creature I can't resist
I'm counting down the days
The promise that shouldn’t have been made
Will try to steal our future today, too
Even if I gain the things I wanted
I wonder why I can’t be good at laughing honestly
The overflowing tears aren’t of weakness or regret
They’re pieces that pain produced
No matter in what...
I was at Atlanta Fest this past year with my church and I had an amazing experience with this song. Imagine a hyped up crowd getting into the moment seeing one of their favorite artists on stage. Then all of a sudden he tells the crowd that he's not up there for their adoration...
I never thought you would make me feel this way
And now I wonder if you'll be with me
Let me know cause I dream of you
If you believe we could fly away
To a place just you and me
My heart will hold too
We will fade away
Baby wait and see
I promise to love you forever
I'm a little bit tired
I've ended up in the middle a Million times I can?t keep up with the feelin I'm living in now
And I could see you holding on
If only for a moment at all
I wish I could hold the dark
Away for long for you
But you gotta know
You are not alone, not...
On his crash course with the big time!
Pay no mind to the distant thunder,
New day filled his head with wonder,boy...
Says it feels right this time...
Turned it round and found the right line...
'Good day to be alive,sir,'
'Good day to be alive,' he said...
And it comes to be...
I stare at my reflection in the mirror:
"Why am I doing this to myself?"
Losing my mind on a tiny error,
I nearly left the real me on the shelf.
No, no, no, no, no...
Don't lose who you are in the blur of the stars!
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be...
Time, is going by, so much faster than I,
And I'm starting to regret not spending all of it with you.
Now I'm, wondering why, I've kept this bottled inside,
So I'm starting to regret not telling all of this to you.
So if I haven't yet, I've gotta let you know...
I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone
I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
machine to all the chicks?
You're damn right!
Who is the man
That would risk his neck for his brother man?
Can ya dig it?
Who's the cat that won't cop out
When there's danger all about
You see this cat Cocrispy is a bad mother...
Sometimes, I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear
And I can't help but ask myself how much I'll let the fear
Take the wheel and steer
It's driven me before
And it seems to have a vague, haunting mass appeal
But lately I am beginning to find that I
Should be the one...
the scene I was walking away
Tired and divorced of my wounds
While I was singing you silenced me
Asked me to tell you the truth
What were you thinking the other day
When I lay alone in my womb
And what did you think when I called out your name
Did you think I had called...
She'd a bruise so black they watched it fade through the full spectrum of colors.
They kept it like a pet; a private joke they told no others.
And how the tissue repaired, and how it turned to yellow
And she found it disgusting, 'cause it didn't match her clothing.
He said "that...
We both know something's begun
Nothin feels that real without you
Wanna learn so much about you
Shining star I've seen your face
Everything falls into place
Nothing else seems to matter
Feels so lonely
Won't you show me
Where I need to be
You bring me to life
something, I'm giving up on you
I'll be the one, if you want me to
Anywhere I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you
And I am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all
And I will stumble and fall
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to...
Sitting here in silence, man, I don't get no peace
The waves upon my shore take me away piece by piece
Gonna leave everything I know gonna head out towards the sea
Jump off this island gonna head out towards the sea
I love this city man, but this city's killing me
like my dreams are a tent and I'm turning inside out
the pattern made of happier times becomes plain and boring...again
just like paper rots and then turns yellow
all my words freeze up inside this machine.
knock knock knock
embracing a silent space...

These Foolish Things
A cigarette that bears a lipstick's traces
An airline ticket to romantic places
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things remind me of you
A tinkling piano in the next...
Your friend takes pills, he thinks it cures sadness
I'm not here to attack or make you kids panic
But it's just tragic the way you kids have it
Everybody sins and it all begins
It goes back around, nobody ever wins
And you stab yourself in the back
Can everyone just relax...
And I'd give up forever to touch you cause I know that you feel me somehow Youre the closest to heaven that I'll ever be and I dont wanna go home right now And all I can taste is this moment and all I can breathe is your life and sooner or later its over I just...
I've had a few
Well, I'm sorry that I hurt them
Did I hurt you too?
I took what I wanted
Put my heart on the shelf
But how can you love me when you don't love yourself?
It was me against the world
I was sure that I'd win
The world fought back, punished me for my sins
True story, he was in the middle of divorcing his wife. He was on stage when these lyrics came to him. He ask his band to start playing slow. The words just came to him. Afterward he broke down and cried on stage. That's real music ..........
cause fallin in love just makes me blue.
well the music plays and you display your heart for me to see
I've had a beer and now I hear you callin out to me.
and I hope that I don't fall in love with you.
who cannot talk
All your insides fall to pieces
You just sit there wishing you could still make love
They're the ones who'll hate you
When you think you've got the world all sussed out
They're the once who'll spit at you
You'll be the one screaming out
Earlier my heart used to be only with me
Later I don’t know what happened to it
And now It stole everything I had, hiding from me
Though it is mine, it doesn’t listen to me
Hey, Is it meeting your heart in secret
If not, my heart shouldn’t have left me
I have nothing left to give
I have found the perfect end
You were made to make it hurt
Disappear into the dirt
Carry me to heaven's arms
Light the way and let me go
Take the time to take my breath
I will end where I began
And I will find the enemy within
Cause I can feel it...
And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't wanna go home right now
And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
When sooner or later it's over
I just don...
