20 years

gather all your things and i will tell you a story
of a man who never new where he was from
story goes he would not ever find love
passion has a way of slipping from the silver tongued
someday we’ll find an answer to it all
and share the future come

you and i will never know
the secrets that were left untold
20 years from now it still remains the same
you and i will never know
the secrets that were left untold
40 years from now it still remains the same

fortune has a way of overriding a person’s sensibility to trust the life they lead
and so it goes we find ourselves arriving once again it’s time to see the world as we have dreamed
someday we’ll find an answer to it all and share the future come

you and i will never know
the secrets that were left untold
20 years from now it still remains the same
you and i will never know
the secrets that were left untold
40 years from now it still remains the same


Blown Away

i can’t believe the sound
a movement from underground
god’s dealt a heavy blow
think he’s stealing the show

blown away am i, blown away
blown away
blown away am i, blown away
blown away

it scares me to know your thoughts
you think like a robot
i’m glad that you seem amused
cause i want you to know the truth … like a man who’s dying


blown away am i, blown away
blown away … and i hear them say
blown away am i, blown away
blown away … and i hear them say
 

you’ll never become the past and the days to come
you give me the right to live inside it all
i’m more than you’ll ever know i’m a different breed
you’ll find me in the in between
i’m more than you’ll ever know
i’m more than you’ll ever see
i’m more than you’ll dare to dream
explaining your lust for inadequacy

blown away am i, blown away
blown away am i, blown away
blown away am i, blown away
blown away am i, blown away

i can’t believe the sound …

you’re so cold
attitude, immature, very difficult to endure
self-absorbed

Feel Like Another One

can't take much more than this evening
world is so crazy i wish it was done
when you hear that sound a coming
run for your life because it has begun
when will winter shed its coldness
down from my logic I'm shaking again
thoughts so strong they cause emotion
feeling so low i’m in need of a friend

and i feel like another one
even though it just won’t help
and i feel like another one
even though it makes things worse
living just to hear i love you
it’s getting harder and harder these days
sound of hatred rings familiar
up from the past now it’s starting to spread
down my spine i hear a message
getting so loud that my vision is blurred
falling over just to drink it
destruction is kind but it’s never deserved

and i feel like another one
even though it just won’t help
and i feel like another one
even though it makes things …
worse, worse, worse
only makes things
worse, worse, worse
only makes things, only makes things,
only makes things …

and i feel like another one
even though it just won’t help
and i feel like another one
even though it makes things worse
and i can’t tell you what is wrong
or talk about it in this song
it’s just to much for me to say
i’ll put my future on display
and so i raise my glass to hope
and bury my tears in dreams of gold
should you find me i won’t run
just join me for another one
another one, another one
just join me for another one…


Hunt You Down

out of love at a time when i needed you the most
not a word as you slowly left the room
out of range for my words i’m a shadow in your life
losing hope as you fade into the crowd

and i’ll hunt you down cause i need you so much
and i’ve got to let you know just how i feel

tell me what it is to be heaven in your shoes
can’t see that you really ought to know
take a look on the hill there’s a house that we can build
take a chance and i’ll show you what i mean

and i’ll hunt you down cause i need you so much
and i’ve got to let you know just how i feel

‘cause i want you to know this much
just want you to know how much i’m falling for ya‘
cause i want you to know this much
If you could see me now you’d know just what I mean
‘cause i want you to know this much
I want you to know how much i’m fallin …


Nobody Loves You Like I Do

sometimes when this place gets kind of empty
the shadows they fade into the darkness
the touch of your lips are but a memory
but gone as they are i can still recall their taste

there you see how every move you make reminds me of the past
now he’s whispering in your ear … this shallow can not last
there was a time when you were all i had and i was just your fad
but passion will not fade

nobody loves you like i do
nobody loves like i need
nobody loves you like i do
nobody loves you like i want

i’m watching you without a question your trembling lips are pressed for some action
i know you can feel me from a distance
why don’t you come over here
cause i need to feel your breath

nobody loves you like i donobody loves like i need
nobody loves you like i do
nobody loves you like i want

you are lost and nowhere to be found
something in the air you’ve got to get out of this town
you are a lost child, keep fading away
keep fading away …


Promise Me

would you stay if i promised you love
would you do what you needed me to
would stay if i gave you the world
because every now and then i fall down
say are you going my way
i’ve been stationed here so long i do not know
and low … low and behold my darling
there’s so much we have to talk about
but you’re so strong to me, you’re so strange to me
we toss and turn and hope to learn
that this is one thing we can not burn

would you stay if i promised you love
would you do what you needed me to
would stay if i gave you the world
because every now and then i fall down
oh you’re buying yourself a drink again
i’m wondering what you’re thinking
but you’re so strong to me, you’re so strange to me
we toss and turn and hope to learn
that this is one thing we can not burn

would you stay if i promised you love
would you do what you needed me to
would stay if i gave you the world
because every now and then i fall down

you’re self denial pushes all my patience way too far
some day we will come to understand the things we are

would you stay if i promised you love
would you do what you needed me to
would stay if i gave you the world
because every now and then i fall down


Right to Breathe

losing my mind
and i can’t believe the words that they’re trying to say
better off dead
than competing with the ones that they are trying to save
truth is a word they will never know
blinding our sense to what they can show

they won’t be there when the sky will come falling
safely away with their families in mourning
scorching the earth while we fight for our right to breathe
reach for the edge
but there’s not enough of us to be hanging around
who do we trust
when the hand of what we need is creating the doubt
truth is a word they will never know
blinding our sense to what they can show

they won’t be there when the sky will come falling
safely away with their families in mourning
scorching the earth while we fight for our right to breathe
oh don’t save me take me into your arms
oh don’t blame them they know not what they have done
what’s worth saving if no one cares anymore
any day life will come calling you’ll see
into the arms of now, believe
no need to be saved
no need to be saved
they won’t be there when the sky will come falling
safely away with their families in mourning
scorching the earth while we fight for our right to breathe
taking a breathe, taking a moment
realize whats going on
taking a breathe, taking a moment
realize whats going on

i will not be forced to believe what others have failed to receive
i will not be forced to condone what others abuse for control
oh and watch how they fall to their knees
oh yes watch how they crawl from their greed
 

Say What You Mean

wrote this letter in this morning
thought that it would do you some good
i punished you because i was wrong
and i’m so sorry baby
my intentions get so twisted
i’m fearing for the path of the world
we all behave like good boys and girls
why are we playing this game

why don’t you say what you mean
when you do what you say
what you mean, what you do, must be true
what you say what you mean
must be true what you say
i only want to see you save the world
working for some understanding
emotions get so strong in my hands
i got fears that make me feel like a wanted man
yes i know you’ve read them
it’s way too late for this conversation
we’re only gonna drag it through the mud
we’re abusing ourselves like a new drug
i only ask you sincere

why don’t you say what you mean
when you do what you say
what you mean, what you do, must be true
what you say what you mean
must be true what you say
i only want to see you save the world
i wanted to love you
but something went wrong
i wanted to save you
but you weren’t around
why didn’t you take it
my love to be found
i wanted to be there
but no one replied
nobody can save us
when you won’t decide
no one at the station
I wanted to fly

all that we need is a little love
and a little patience


Seeing is Believing

i can’t believe you’d show your face around here again
after all of the things that we’ve been through
everybody’s got a story always looking for the glory
will you find it well i never think so
it’s all up to you

i want to be the one to save you whatever you need
i want to be the one to save you cause seeing is believing
i’ve tried for a while but its still not coming through
every now and then there’s a thing that i must do
some will come down from the mountain
when they do, drink from the fountain
will you care, i highly doubt it
it’s a part of who you are

i want to be the one to save you whatever you need
i want to be the one to save you cause seeing is believing
i want to be the one to save you whatever you need
i want to be the one to save you cause seeing is believing
i’m trying to figure it out
but there’s no love in sight
and you don’t even care
and even before the dawn
we’ll sing our favorite song
we used to when we were young
i want to be the one to save you whatever you need
i want to be the one to save you cause seeing is believing


When I Think of You

you’re nothing short of a miracle i swear
perfect timing it’s a love that can’t compare
liken it to a never ending story
first light comes and i’m running for the phone to hear your voice

when i think of you
i believe in something more
love so brand new
but i know you oh so well…
somethings got me upset again my darling
it’s the thought of a world without your loving
take my hand and i’ll show you to tomorrow
in that moment of our sorrow comes the promise of a future life with you

i’m trying to figure it out
there’s no love in sight
and you don’t even care
and even before the dawn
we’ll sing our favorite song
we used to when we were young
when i think of
i believe in something more
love so brand new
but i know you oh so well
can this be true
that you feel the same for me
when i think of you
nothing seems impossible my friend
