Save the Day

I've lived my life beside an ocean
And everyday I drown emotions with the tide
And no one's ever asked me why
Guess I'm silly to waste my time

I reach and stretch too far to measure
And I break myself to keep together all the time
It's a struggle to be kind
In a world that seems so blind

Before I grow too old to seize the day
Before I spread my wings and fly away
I'd like to get to see my heart at play
And see if love can't save the day
What if it's the only way
Can we save the day

Aside from my faith there is no glory
And aside from the truth there is no story anymore
We're all soldiers in the war
But tell me what are we fighting for

Feels like we've been here forever
As I break myself to keep together and apart
From a way that eats my heart
I don't know how it got so hard

Before I grow too old to seize the day
Before I spread my wings and fly away
I'd like to get to see my heart at play
And see if love can't save the day
What if it's the only way
Can we save the day

The day is saved
Maybe I'm wrong but
The love you saved
You're love has grown

Before I grow too old to seize the day
Before I spread my wings and fly away
I'd like to get to see my heart at play
And see if love can't save the day
It is the only way
Can we save the day

Bye Bye

I call my mom I call my friend
Looking for a reason to go home again
But you make me feel like I don't belong
Like my heart's too weak and my head's too strong
Opposites attract sometimes but not the way
you're attracting mine
And I can't change the way you are
Even though you think you're some kind of rock star

I want you out of my life, my life, my life
Cause your heart is cold as ice
It's time that you hit the door
I don't want to see you no more

my life, my life, my life
Cause your heart is cold as ice
It's time that you hit the door
I don't want to see you no more

You want me to walk like this and talk like that
Dye my hair and don't wear hats
And dress too sleazy and go too far
When all I want to do is play my guitar
And I don't think that it's fair
And I don't think that you care about me
Yeah but I see the way it's got to be
I want you out of my life

I want you out of my life, my life, my life
Cause your heart is cold as ice
It's time that you hit the door
I don't want to see you no more

my life, my life, my life
Cause your heart is cold as ice
It's time that you hit the door
I don't want to see you no more

Do it like this
Then I do it like that
Do it like this
When I do it like this
Can you tell me why

Why am I in this alone?
Is my love too much for you?
What's wrong with home?
I hope you have found your answer
Because I think that I found mine
I want you out of my life

I want you out of my life, my life, my life
Cause your heart is cold as ice
It's time that you hit the door
I don't want to see you no more

my life, my life, my life
Cause your heart is cold as ice
It's time that you hit the door
I don't want to see you no more
Bye Bye

I Want You

I've seen suckers lose themselves in the games they learn to play
Children love to sing and then their voices slowly fade away
People always take a step away from what is true
That's why I like you around
I want you

Oh you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do
You make me want you

An open invitation to the dance
And happenstance set the vibe that we were in
No apology because my urge is genuine
And the mystery of opposites attracting
Here I am and I want to take a hit
On your scent 'cause it bit
So deep into my soul
Yeah, I want you, alright

Oh yeah you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do
You make me want you, oh yeah
Yeah you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do
You're makin' me want you

Alright
And I can't get enough, I, I, I, I, I
And I can't get enough, you, you, you, yeah
And I can't get enough, I, I, I, I, I

The village church yard is filled with bones weeping in the grave
A silver lining of clouds shines on people Jesus couldn't save
You want to know how deeply my soul goes
Deeper than bones, deeper than bones

And I can't get enough, I, I, I, I, I
And I can't get enough, you, you, you, you, you
And I can't get enough, I, I, I, I
And I can't get enough, you, you, yeah

After we did it by the window sill
Smoke rings drifting into the sky
Wrapped in the quilt that my mama made
And one candle burns fighting off the haze
And you talk real sweet and kiss me on the cheek
And like a jazz DJ you talk me into sleep
There will be no regrets when the end comes
And it will surely come

Oh yeah you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do
You make me want you, oh yeah
Yeah you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do
You make me want you
Yeah, I want you
Yeah you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do
You make me want you
Yeah you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, you do, oh yeah
I want you, I want you, alright
Baby with so much life
Baby tell me what you like

Under the Rainbow

Hey brother, tell me what it is
Do you think you might forget yourself if you forgive?
You don't answer, so long since you did
Am I wasting time just waiting to find out
The answers behind how you live?

Hey sister, do you like this place
Don't it seem it all revolves around a pretty face?
Don't lose your amazing grace
And keep in control of your heart and your soul
Which no one will ever replace

Somewhere under the rainbow
There's sunlight maybe a sprinkle of gold

Hey genius, tell me what you see
Is it everyone around this girl or is it just me
Your martyr I will never be
Because I'm willing to fight for all of the rights
You've wrongfully taken from me

And somewhere under the rainbow
There's sunlight maybe a sprinkle of gold
I've been waiting, seems like a lifetime
For someone to take all the rain off my mind

Somewhere under the rainbow
There's sunlight maybe a sprinkle of gold
I've been waiting, seems like a lifetime
For someone to take all the rain off my mind

Hey Jesus, do you hear my prayer
I've been waiting forever for you to tell me that you care
I'm lonely and it don't seem fair
I was hoping that you would tell me you do
Have a way out of all this despair

Somewhere under the rainbow
There's sunlight maybe a sprinkle of gold
I've been waiting, seems like a lifetime
For someone to take all the rain off my mind

When You Became King

I don't know when you became king of my dreams
I only know that when you go everything around me
falls apart at the seams
I've never known someone so much like me
Yet you're your own and parts of you
remain a sweet mystery

And I am falling
Falling into a dream
And you you are calling
Calling me to be your queen

All the world is a stage when you're around
Everyone's acting their parts but nothing is real like
this love that I've found
...with you my baby

And when you lift me up there's no coming down
I get so high I could float away on a feather like a fairy crown

And I am falling
Falling into a dream
And you you are calling
Calling me to be your queen

The willows howl as the lazy sleep
The lucky stars fall away as they weep, as they weep

I, I am falling
Falling into a dream
You you are calling
Calling me to be your queen

A Chance With You

You make me whole
But we have still got places left to go
But my life, heart and soul
Is yours for the sharing, let me know

With all you've seen
You still keep your heart set on your dreams
You're so strong you should rest assured
Anything in this world you want is yours

I don't have a chance with you
But I'm gonna let you find that all your love
is better in my mind
You don't have the heart to let me go
I'm gonna let you fly and all the rest
I'll find it on my own

This life that we lead
Takes everything you've got and lets you bleed
But when you see that you're not alone
It'll open wider than you know

I don't have a chance with you
But I'm gonna let you find that all your love
is better in my mind
You don't have the heart to let me go
I'm gonna let you fly and all the rest
I'll find it on my own

I know what you're feeling when
you're willing to break
And I see all the pressure that
you're willing to take

I don't have a chance with you
But I'm gonna let you find that all your love
is better in my mind
You don't have the heart to let me go
I'm gonna let you fly and all the rest
I'll find it on my own

I don't have a chance with you
But I'm gonna let you find that all your love
is better in my mind
You don't have the heart to let me go
I'm gonna let you fly and all the rest
I'll find on my own
I'm gonna let you find that all your love
is better in my mind
I'm gonna let you fly and all the rest
I'll find on my own

How Many of Us Have Them (Friends)

Friends is a word we use every day but most of the time
we use it in the wrong way
Some people say that they got your back but you can tell
a true friend by the way they act
And if you ask me know I can't be much help cause a
friend's somebody you judge for yourself
Doesn't matter what I think I see because a friend to you
might not be a friend to me
Some are mellow and they act cool others treat you like
you're a fool
Some are always on your side and others just want to
take you for a ride
And this list goes on again and again but these are the
people that we call friends

Friends - how many of us have them
Friends - ones we can depend on
Friends - how many of us have them
Friends - before we go any further let's be friends

When we first hooked up we barely knew each other I never
thought you would be my lover
Talking on the phone for hours at a time or I was at your
house or you were at mine
And then came all the fights and all the problems turned out
that was all we had in common
And even though we started out strong I guess we went
about the whole thing wrong
And I should've known it would come to an end cause we
became lovers before we were friends

Friends - how many of us have them
Friends - ones we can depend on
Friends - how many of us have them
Friends - before we go any further let's stay friends

The list goes on and on
Again and again and again and again
The list goes on and on
Again and again and again and again
These are the people, these are the people that we call friends
True friends show you more than you can see
But some people leave you on your knees
With friends like that you don't need enemies

Friends - how many of us have them
Friends - ones we can depend on
Friends - how many of us have them
Friends - before we go any further let's be friends
Friends - how many of us have them
Friends - ones we can depend on
Friends - how many of us have them
Friends - before we go any further let's be friends
Friends - how many of us have them
Friends - ones we can depend on
Friends - how many of us have them
Friends - before we go any further let's stay friends

God of Love

As I stand here in your shadow
Waiting for you to move so I can see
out the window
I want to watch the children play
See another little girl fall and run away
And I'll never understand the way that you play
with me

You were almost heaven an angel from above
But you're not a god of love, oh no
You were almost heaven the way I'm dreaming of
But you're not a god of love, oh no
And you're not the man for me

You always seem to laugh when I'm not joking
And I'm not joking anymore
And we don't communicate
So I spoke with fate
And it's just too late...

You were almost heaven an angel from above
But you're not a god of love
You were almost heaven the way I'm dreaming of
But you're not a god of love
And you're not the god of me

I will give you up

You were almost heaven an angel from above
But you're not a god of love, no no
You were almost heaven the way I'm dreaming of
But you're not a god of love
And you're not the one for me
You were almost heaven like an angel
But you're not the god of love

I Don't Care (Lonesome Road)

Soul (sold) driving down this lonesome road
Somewhere... somewhere someone's waiting
You're leaving with a part of me
Stolen... stolen time that once was mine
Precious words we left unheard

Desert me and decieve me but I don't care
I don't care anymore
You love me then leave me but I don't care
I don't care anymore

Desert me and decieve me but I don't care
I don't care anymore
You love me then leave me but I don't care
I don't care anymore

Heart (hard) stepping through the door alone
Somewhere... somewhere someone's longing
Smiled, someone at the red light smiled
Saved me... saved me from my inner strife
Baby just saved my life

Desert me and decieve me but I don't care
I don't care anymore
You love me then leave me but I don't care
I don't care anymore

Desert me and decieve me but I don't care
I don't care anymore
You love me then leave me but I don't care
I don't care anymore

Got This Far

I don't think I wanted to take your time
I don't think it ever crossed my mind
That you would be more to me than just a lover
Cause I, I was doing fine on my own
Wasn't really lonely, just alone
But atleast I knew where I was and what
I wanted but now

I don't know how you got me babe
So open wide
And I don't know how to tell you babe
The way it feels inside
I know I have a feeling that you
You could hold me longer
We get stronger every day

And I don't know what you've done to me
I'm so turned around I can barely see
The way that I'm supposed to be
I'm so wrapped up in what I think you think of me

I don't know how you got this far
How am I supposed to live a life
Burdened by the thought of you my love
How will I ever be alright

Every time I look into your eyes
I can feel the pressure start to rise
Pulling me into you and what you'll show me
Well I believe that love can conquer all
But is it really love that makes you fall
Or just the fantasy of understanding

Well I, I don't know how you're gonna
save the rest of my heart
I don't know how I'd stop you baby
or how I'd even start
I know I have a feeling that you
Are something to discover
The lover that you are

And I don't know how you got through
I'm not the kind of girl you're supposed to get to
I've been hurt before I don't want it anymore
I'm safer in my solitude

I don't know how you got this far
How am I supposed to live a life
Burdened by the thought of you my love
How will I ever be alright

I don't know how you got through
But just like a child I run to you
And I don't know what else to say
Nobody soothes me the way that you do

I don't know how you got this far
How am I supposed to live a life
Burdened by the thought of you my love
How will I ever be alright
I don't know how you got this far
How am I supposed to live a life
I don't know how you got this far

 

Easy to Love

Like a sparrow with a wounded wing
Left all alone, to a tree I'll sing
But it can't respond to my melody
And it can't lend me harmony
It's just my one thin, lonely voice
And it's not my choice to be alone
But I've come too far now to go back home
On my own it's no fun to roam
I've got to find me someone to be around
When all these blues get me down
Maybe you've got the time
Maybe you'll share yourself with me
I don't need to call you mine

Just like you, babe I need to be free
And just like you babe I need to be me
Just like you, baby I would be so easy to love
I don't want someone to watch over me
I don't care about the holes in your jean
You just come and you do what you do
And could you be there baby when I call for you
I could use some piece of mind

It's not my choice to be alone
But I've come too far now to run back home
On my own, it's no fun to roam
I've got to find me someone to be around
When all these blues get me down
Maybe you've got the time
Maybe you'll share yourself with me
I don't need to call you mine

Just like you babe I need to be free
Just like you baby I need to be me
Just like you baby I would be so easy to love
Just like you babe I need to be free
Just like you baby I need to be me
Just like you baby I would be so easy to love
So easy to love
So easy to love

I don't have all of the pieces you gave me
I'm watching us go round
And I see us drowning, drowning
And I need to fall behind
And we're pushing and under
Oh you needed to fade away
We
Are we turning away
