BELIEVE

 

What are you crying for

There's a whole nother picture to see
You better change your state of mind

What are we fighting for
We are blinded by power and greed
We better change the stakes are high
Decide how we want things to be
Understand where we're coming from
We've got the choice to be free

You gotta believe - you got to believe - you gotta believe

What are we lying for and why do we choose not to see
We can't let fear decide for us
Denial is the enemy
Don't play the fool, don't turn away
we've got the right to be free

You gotta believe - you got to believe
You gotta believe - got to believe

Wind and water, earth and sun
Ice and fire will be one
Fine young soldier, mother's child
Luv will find you, take you through the night
Wind and water, earth and sky
Ice and fire will be one
Fine young soldier, father's child
Luv will find you, take you through the night
Away

 

CAN'T SAY NO

I wanted everything for us

But you brought me down so low
Yeah you stopped me in my tracks

Couldn't let those big wheels roll
Ever since that rainy day when you stepped out from that train
A desperate moment all in vain
Now I'm coming for you

Well you had me from the start - yeah
And I can't say no
Won't you open up your heart or let me go

Kindred spirit's we are not
Any fool can plainly see
How could I have missed the signs
when they're all laid out for me
Sometimes luv can leave you blind but this time lust has done me in
Somehow I just can't deny
Now I'm coming for you

Well you had me from the start - yeah

And I can't say no

Won't you open up your heart or let me go

Well you had me from the start - yeah

I can't say no
Won't you open up your heart

I can't say no

I can't say no
 

LUCKY ONE

A moment is all that we had
And like many others, it got away from us
A passionate feeling with each one night stand
But that picture faded long ago

yeah, yeah, yeah

And next time I see your face
I'll be the lucky one, next time
The pieces, they'll find their place
Call me the lucky one, next time

I wonder what it's like to be with you every night
Would I make you crazy or would you make me mad
Or would we like it, yeah
Would everything feel right
I'm tired of waiting, I wanna lose control
yeah, yeah, yeah

And next time I see your face
I'll be the lucky one, next time
The pieces, they'll find their place
call me the lucky one, next time

All this fighting, one more night and down we go
I can't describe it but when I find it
it's hard to let go - yeah
Senses reeling, all these feelings, out of control
'Cause it takes time to walk on by
the life that you know - yeah

The next time I see your face
I'll be the lucky one, next time
The pieces, they'll find their place
Call me the lucky one, this time

 

NEED AN ANSWER

I did not see it coming
You knocked me off my feet
I think it's so ironic
You made a mess of me


I did not take for granted the time we had
And I can't believe you're leaving
You cannot take it back

'Cause if you believe in something you don't just walk away
And if you believe in someone
Will you be back again

And now we're standing in the pouring rain
I need an answer, will you be back again

Well it's a tricky situation
I try to find the words
The cards are on the table
I hope the dream finds you


We got what we were missing the rest will come in time
and I know you're tired of waiting
I'm tired of crying for you
Will you please see it through

And if you believe in something you don't just walk away
And if you believe in someone
Will you be back again

And now we're standing in the pouring rain
I need an answer, will you be back again

 

Cause when you believe in something you don't just walk away
and if you believe in someone
Will you be back again

And now we're standing in the pouring rain
I need an answer
I want an answer
Give me an answer - yeah
Will you be back again

 

ALL I WANT

Tell me you will be there all I want is you
Tell me you will be mine all I need is you

Ever since day one I felt you inside
See how our worlds collide
Now more than ever I feel it inside
Look at me - oh

Tell me you will be there all I want is you
Tell me you will be mine all I need is you

Each waking moment I face this alone hoping that one day you'll see
Coming unwound as I hear my heart sound
Look at me - oh

Give me one reason to stay here
Don't know what else I can say
Am I the one that you want near
It's all up to you anyway - yeah yeah

Tell me you will be there all I want is you
Tell me you will be mine all I need is you

 

DREAMING

It started with a chain reaction the moment that I let it escape my mind
I wonder if you're feeling any satisfaction
What's inside

Like a chemical attraction caught between the spaces in time
I am amazed by you and what's inside

Feels like I'm dreaming
I must be losing control
If I am dreaming, wake me up

I've been feeling kind of crazy ever since I let you into my life
You know it's been the greatest kind of crazy
It feels so right

Now we're moving through the sweet seduction
It caught me like an arrow through my heart
A familiar dream come true

Feels like I'm dreaming

I must be losing control

If I am dreaming, wake me up

I had a dream of you
I wanna see it through

Feels like I'm dreaming
It feels like I'm losing
If I am dreaming I must be losing
I must be dreaming
I must be dreaming
Oh, feels like I'm dreaming
Wake me up

 

VIOLENCE

Stuck in the middle
Tongue tied and waiting for the words to come
I get the feeling something's going down

Misinformation (hear it going 'round)
In the papers and on the tv
Why should we believe

There's a feeling of violence
Everyday I wake up and the world is on my shoulders
and I want you to know

Innuendo's flying (hear it going 'round)
He said, she said, I can't take any more
Why are we listening

Make up your own mind (gotta think for yourself)
Can't you see they're covering up the truth and the lies
How can we change it

There's a feeling of violence
Everyday I wake up and the world is on my shoulders
and I want you to know

Come around, come around, come around

There's a feeling of violence
Every day I wake up and the world is on my shoulders
and I want you to know
A feeling of violence
Every day I wake up and the world is on our shoulders
and I want you to know - oh

 
DIVE

Dive down, deep in the heart of me
There are so many things I want you to see
Another breakdown, voices are guiding me
Living a fantasy with my eyes open

I can be the glitter to your gold
I can be the sunlight when your cold

Changes, always a mystery
Something inside of me is alive again
Turn around the pain is going
Look ahead the tides are turning
Don't be afraid we're all just learning

I can be the glitter to your gold
I can be the sunlight when your cold

Look around a new day's coming
and I can feel the world around me
Things will be much better if we dive

Shine, shine, shine

Dive down, deep in the heart of me
There are so many things I want you to see
Turn around the pain is going
Look ahead the tides are turning
Don't be afraid we're all just learning

I can be the glitter to your gold
I can be the sunlight when your cold
Look around a new day's coming
and I can feel the world around me
Things will be much better if we dive into life

Shine, shine, shine

 
WISER FOR WEAR

Changing, rearranging, it's different this time

'Cause I'm a little older and wiser for wear

Mixed up and misguided
My heart's the compass that guides me

Even in the rough times, I wouldn't change a thing

I got my peace of mind
Like Johnny I walk the line

And even when doing time, I'm just fine

 

Fucked up and excited
I feel my temperature rising
Luving you is easy, I ain't missing a thing

I got my peace of mind
Like Johnny I walk the line
And even when doing time, I'm just fine

The waves roll like thunder
The moonshine is stronger
The night time is longer since you've gone
Here I go again

Face it and embrace me but you can never replace me
I may be no angel, but I'm the best thing you've got
It's getting harder to contain it but you're the one thing that saves it
It's gonna be a long night without you in my life

I got my peace of mind
Like Johnny I walk the line
And even when doing time, I'm just fine

The waves roll like thunder
The moonshine is stronger
The night time is longer
The road goes on forever
Lightning strikes from heaven
The night time is longer since you've gone away
Here I go again

 
DOWN DAZE

I'm not a slave to your expectations

And I don't wanna play your games no more
There's too many rules and stipulations

You're bringing me down, I can't take it anymore

I gave you more than you deserved
I let you feed upon the nectar of my soul - yeah
It feels so good to live my own life
I'll never be down like I was before

Down days, down daze
I'll be back on my feet
Down days, down daze
I'll never be down like I was before

Well there's enough going on in this world
So don't get caught up in the emptiness
Plant the seeds of your dreams and watch your luv unfurl - yeah
And try to let go of the rest

Down days, down daze
I'll be back on my feet
Down days, down daze
I'll never be down like I was before

So many times, I gave it all away
but things can only get better
And you know it'll be alright
Through the darkness comes the light
I'm gonna cut you loose tonight

I feel it, I feel it, I feel it - yeah
I feel it, I feel it, I feel it

Down days, down daze
I'll be back on my feet
Down days, down daze
I'll be back on my feet - yeah

I'll never be down like I was before
I'll never be down like I was before

I'll never be down like I was before

I'll never be

 
EVERYTHING

Feel it, believe it, the time is right and you're so ready
Take it and change it all around
Visions of living the way you always wanted to
So give in and win this time around

 

Everything is there, you gotta seize it

Aim high, reach for the sky, there are no limits make your move
And realize it's all yours if you try
Chase it, don't waste it the dream has just begun to happen
Take it, don't stop and wonder why

Everything is there when you need it
Everything is there
Now

 

Everything is there when you need it
Everything is there better believe it
Everything is there
Now

 

SURROUNDING THE BEAUTIFUL

When I'm alone with you, time stands still
Something to hold on to, savor the thrill
Moments we've captured in still photographs
Time waits for no one, let go of the past

I'll be the only one
You'll be the lucky one

Softly the wind blows, a promise of change
Life in it's rhythm is keeping the pace
And your beating heart, it keeps time with mine
Together we'll ride the wave, luv so divine

We'll be the lucky one's
Never the lonely one's

Fire burns and tears flow like oceans
Surrounding the beautiful
Up through the ashes life comes again
I'll see you when the smoke clears

La da da da da da

Deep in the emerald mountains where the sun likes to dance
Inside the darkest notion is a diamond of chance
So hold on to happiness as long as you can
Illumination, luv never ends

You'll be the only one
We'll be the lucky one's

Surrounding the beautiful
Surrounding me, it's surrounding you
it's surrounding me

Surrounding
