Live When We Die

Always kept me in your pocket
No limitations on it
Was never lost on you
People wrapped around your finger
Your smile with me lingers
Through everything I do

Don’t leave the heart within you
Keep the things that matter to you
Wrapped up in the comfort of your love
Don’t come undone
Don’t come undone

Only people can destroy things
We’re beautiful and longing for day where we believe
Let go there’s pieces of us wrapped up
Into the parts that bind us
We’ll settle in the ground

Don’t leave the heart within you
Keep the things that matter to you
Wrapped up in the comfort of your love
Don’t come undone
Don’t come undone

Sometimes we land where we land
Sometimes we can when we can
Sometimes we laugh when we cry
Sometimes we don’t say goodbye
So why can’t we smile when we frown
Learn to get up when we’re down
Why don’t we sing when we’re winning
It’s not the end, we’re beginning
Sometimes we don’t say goodbye
Sometimes we live when we die

Lately

I’d like to fire away but never hurt you
Picked up the pieces lost and you would come through

Hey lately I could see you in the bright lights
Hey maybe I could catch you on the right night
All my love
Because I know where you’ve come from
All my love
Because I know when you are done
I’ll turn the radio on and hear you sing

I’d like to see your face and say I told you
You’d make it on your own and they would love you

Hey lately I could see you in the bright lights
Hey maybe I could catch you on the right night
All my love
Because I know where you’ve come from
All my love
Because I know when you are done
I’ll turn the radio on and hear you sing

Someone Like You

Girl, I had got to thinking
You’re my only tragedy
I’m haunted by your face
Girl, I won’t leave you lonely
My heart beats for you only
At night I call your name

All of my life
I’ve been searching for the words
That make me fit in right with
Someone like you

Boy, I’ve seen that you’ve been waiting
Every night I’m faking
Just to make you think I’d call
Boy, I reached out to no one
But inside I knew that someone
Would see just who I am

All of my life
I’ve been searching for the words
That make me fit in right with
Someone like you

I’m not what I seem
Whatever that may be
I’ll leave you waiting

Girl, I don’t want to bother but my heart is sinking farther
Down to where you are
Boy, I just think you’re crazy
What would you do if maybe
You had a girl like me

All of my life
I’ve been searching for the words
That make me fit in right with
Someone like you
All of my dreams
Are tearing at the seams
I want to
But I fight it all with
Someone like you

Until The Light Goes Out On Me

How long will it take before it’s gone?
“Son”, he said “there’s never right or wrong,
Just somewhere in the middle where you are”
I collect myself and go until I’m far

Until the light goes out on me

There’s something in me I could never trust
Along this road I settle in the dust
Kick and fight and stir it up again
I could see the path in front of me it never ends

Until the light goes out on me

I’m not the man my father thought I’d be
But I can take a punch and never bleed
Take the worst and give back what I can
Run from all the memories but won’t know who I am

Until the light goes out on me

Now along the highway I just breathe
Rest my mind and settle in the dirty breeze
And every night I dream I’m at your side
From the moment I awake I go to ride
Until the light goes out on me

Let You Get Away

I came on the radio on your porch
Playing songs that remind you of that time
When you got high
And stood around just talking to your girlfriends
Saying I was just a little more than something fine, well I got mine

I don’t need you to call
Wish there was something in me you saw
Wish there was something about me I could find to change
Because baby, I was crazy to let you get away

I could hear the radio in my car
Playing songs that remind me of that phase
When life was a game
I could see there’s nothing left around me
All the boys moved out and left me here to waste
Like I’ve been erased

I don’t need you to call
Wish there was something in me you saw
Wish there was something about me I could find to change
Because baby, I was crazy to let you get away

I could see the shadows of my old street
I remember days when I was not so lost
When did I go soft?
Now I pick my head up in the daylight
Drive for miles until I hit the dead moonlight
Until I am right

I don’t need you to call
Wish there was something in me you saw
Wish there was something about me I could find to change
Because baby I was crazy to let you get away

 

For You

There’s a darkness in the calling of the wind
I take a breath before the silence settles in my heart
My heart
I saw you standing in the light inside a dream
You were talking like you never had the right to be
To be

The light will fade
But I will wait here for you

There are shadows in the places you would hide
Lift my head and hear the voices of the night
Goodbye
Say goodbye
I don’t want to be the one to break on you
Or see you crumble with no one to see you through this fight
This fight

The light will fade
But I will wait here for you

I see the visions in the messages I choose
You are the silence and the noise that guides me through
Now I will never leave the darkness in your heart
I’ll be the light inside this world when it is dark
There is a lasting hope of love behind your eyes
When you don’t think I see the glory in the sky in you
In you

There’s a darkness in the calling of the wind
I take a breath before the silence settles in my heart
My heart
The light will fade
But I will stay here with you.

Hey Lacey

Hey, Lacey
You know my intentions
Hey, Lacey
You don’t need no ring
Bearing the cross that is your calling
Come lay your body next to me

Is it the way we are emphatically divided?
Is it a curse to settle everybody’s score?
You are the sun that burns in space on the horizon
You are the part of me that always heeds the call

Hey, Lacey
You don’t need no reason
Hey, Lacey
You won’t fall for me
Burning the earth where you stood calling
For anyone to come and take you home

Is it the way we are emphatically divided?
Is it a curse to settle everybody’s score?
You are the sun that burns in space on the horizon
You are the part of me that always heeds the call

You Got It All Wrong

I saw you dance by the fire
Right through the shadows that you fear
‘Till no one was here
I held the light left behind you
You whispered something in my ear
Told me all was clear.


I held the pieces of you, lost and left alone
I saw the days when you were empty, on your own
You got it all wrong


The simple way that you’re moving
I’d wait for hours ‘till you’d call
Remember me at all?


I parted ways with the sunlight
I know the songs that you would sing
The memories you would bring


I held the pieces of you, lost and left alone
I saw the days when you were empty, on your own
You got it all wrong


I looked from outside my window
You looked so perfect in the sky
Hey, you’d be surprised


I held the pieces of you, lost and left alone
I saw the days when you were empty, on your own
You got it all wrong

Right There

They’re letting us out
We’ll be the first ones to ignite
The dead will arise
We’ll be the last ones here surprised
We started it all
We’ll be the last ones here denied


We’ll go out tonight
Give it everything we have
When the stars collide
I’ll be right there for you girl


They’re singing our songs
We are the hopeless and contained
It’s out of our range
Feel like the only ones alive
Sit in the sun
We are the angry come undone


We’ll go out tonight
Give it everything we have
When the stars collide
I’ll be right there for you girl


Here we are, so bright
We feel everything in time
When our souls arrive
We will be there on our own


We’ll go out tonight
Give it everything we have
When the stars collide
I’ll be right there for you girl
 

I Lied

Everything that’s weak goes
Through the window
I gently fill my veins
I’m watching all the doors close
The stars are aligned for me tonight

Something jars my brain
When I close my eyes it goes away

I can’t remember life
Without the pain
Without my arms
Around you again
I can’t remember dreams
When I was young
That do not haunt
They still don’t come

You swore you gave it everything, you lied
Sit and watch me glide
Through all the lights, the calm, the darkness that is life
Just wait here, I was told
With all the ghosts of everyone that tried to fly

I can’t remember life
Without the pain
Without my arms
Around you again
I can’t remember dreams
When I was young
That do not haunt
They still don’t come

You swore you gave it everything, you lied
Sit and watch me glide
Through all the lights, the calm, the darkness that is life
