BRING IT

You say you want it

You say you gotta have it

You say you need it

Come inside

Show me don't tell, I've got no time for fooling

We know so well you got some issues brewing

What do you think about me truly

You always looked the other way

Now you say you've been waiting for me

Saving me for your rainy day

You say you want it

You say you gotta have it

 

Bring it baby, bring it to me

Say the words and come inside

Bring it, maybe you'll come through this time

I'll be waiting for you

You say you want it

You say you gotta have it

Things come around and maybe this will play out nicely

I ain't no clown but still somehow you entice me

What do you think about me truly

You never gave me the time of day

Now you say you've been waiting for me

You're watching it swing the other way

You say you want it

You say you gotta have it

 

Bring it baby, bring it to me

Say the words and come inside

Bring it, maybe you'll come through this time

I'll be waiting for you

(repeat)

Bring it baby, bring it to me

Say the words and come inside

Bring it, maybe you'll come through this time

I'll be waiting for you

I'll be waiting for you

You say you want it

You say you gotta have it

You say you need it

You say you gotta have it

You say you want me

You say you gotta have me

You say you need me

Come inside

HAZE

It's way after midnight and I'm lying in my bed

And I think about the big fight and everything we said

You know I didn't mean it, I just let myself get mad

Now I'm working on the real fight, the one inside my head

And I try to calm the monsters running 'round my brain

The only thing that soothes it is if I give myself a break - yes

'Cause I've been living in a haze down low

Now I'm gonna right my wrongs

I ain't gonna waste no time

The only thing that gets me off is running for my life

Now I'm rolling down the red road and I try to do my best

I try not to listen to what the papers say

The root that keeps me grounded is the keeper of my faith

Sunrise and rainfall, I take it day by day

Try not listen to what the haters say

Luv is still the answer, you can take it to your grave - yes

'Cause I've been living in a haze down low

Now I'm gonna right my wrongs

I ain't gonna waste no time

The only thing that gets me off

I gotta get myself up and out of here

Been hanging 'round for so long

And I got a lot to give more than enough

Look around, see the world waiting for your luv

It's way after midnight and I'm lying in my bed

And I try to calm the monsters running

'Cause I've been living in a haze down low

Now I'm gonna right my wrongs

I ain't gonna waste no time

The only thing that gets me off

'Cause I've been living in a haze down low

Now I'm gonna right my wrongs

I ain't gonna waste no time

The only thing that gets me off is running for my life

TWO SIDES

There's no sense in leaving, I've been here for so long

With everyone that comes and goes I guess it feels as though I'm moving on

but I'm wasted most of the time

Sometimes when I'm alone I leave the TV on it keeps me company

though I don't mind

There's two sides to every story

You got yours and I got mine

Two sides to every story

But I can remember a day not so long ago when I felt a different way

I guess I'm changing as I go

There's two sides to every story

You got yours and I got mine

But you know what it takes to luv me most of the time

There's no sense in leaving, I've been here for so long

With everyone that comes and goes I guess it feels as though I'm moving on

Well sometimes when I'm alone I leave the TV on it keeps me company

Though I don't mind 'cause I'm wasted most of the time

There's two sides to every story

You got yours and I got mine

There's two sides to every story

But you know what it takes to luv me

Two sides to every story and I got mine

But you know what it takes to luv me

Two sides - two sides - two sides - two sides - two sides

NO ONE KNOWS

Look around don't you see what's going on

Maybe all your beliefs have led you on

Forget them all, speak your truth and you can't go wrong

No one knows what's coming

No one knows what's coming

No one knows

Beaten down, pushed aside, won't derail my plan

Seems as if it's always me being the bigger man

Take me where the grass is green and I'll understand

No one knows what's coming

No one knows what's coming

No one knows

(repeat)

Throw it aside push your way through

The end of the line is no place for you

Take it in stride a mountain to climb

Gimme the prize you know that it's mine

Is it so wrong to feel you deserve a little reward for all of your work

And if you're not society's child

Don't let them stop you from being heard

No one knows what's coming (no one knows)

No one knows what's coming (we don't know)

No one knows

 

CAGES

I used to be reckless, wonderfully reckless

Time changed me now I feel stranded

I used to be selfish, hopelessly selfish and childish

I couldn't help it

Something inside, it's painfully wild and I feed it

But I'm always hungry

As I get older all that I know is I'm lucky just to be here

I want you to stay don't leave without me

Never fear, I can not bear this place without you

C'mon the coast is clear

Locked up in cages, sometimes the chains are so heavy but I am ready

The blue of your eyes is all that I need it's everlasting

I'm seeing something

Standing in line, watching the time, we are courageous

In our asphalt jungle

As I get older all that I know is I'm lucky just to be here

I want you to stay don't leave without me

Never fear, I can not bear this place without you

C'mon the coast is clear, oh so clear

I used to be reckless, wonderfully reckless

Time changed me now I feel stranded

I used to be selfish, hopelessly selfish and childish

I couldn't help it

Something inside, it's painfully wild and I feed it

But I'm always hungry

As I get older all that I know is I'm lucky just to be here

I want you to stay don't leave without me

Never fear, I can not bear this place without you

C'mon the coast is clear, oh so clear

Oh oh oh oh

Oh what a light of an eastern fire in the night of a western moon

(repeat)

Ooh would I like

Ooh would I like to see it

(repeat)

KEEP THE GOLD

In my mind I'm still the same little kid

Running around the neighborhood

Filling wagons with the treasure from the trees and bringing dragons to their knees

How big the dreams are to a wide eyed kid

Skipping stones and killing time

With no idea of life's walls so big and all the steps he's yet to climb

Time moves us on

Are you willing to let go of all the things that just don't serve you anymore

Leave the rocks and keep the gold

Those summer days they went on and on

How could we know they wouldn't last

Remembering all of those who've come and gone and all the good times that we had

Time moves us on

Are you willing to let go of all the things that just don't serve you anymore

Leave the rocks and keep the gold

This precious life so filled with pain and joy

And dragons of another kind

But still the good times far out weigh the bad and all the luv brings peace of mind

Time moves us on

Are you willing to let go of all the things that just don't serve you anymore

Leave the rocks and keep the gold

Time moves us on

Are you willing to let go of all the things that just don't serve you anymore

Leave the rocks and keep the gold

WHATCHA GOT

Light it up, set in on fire, you know you wanna watch it burn

Give it up, pass it on over, everybody deserves a turn

Break it down, one by one

They build you up to watch you fall

Not today, gonna try harder 'cause the luv we got is way too strong

No we ain't going down like that

We got so much more to give

Hey mama, whatcha got to lose

Hey daddy why ya singin' the blues

Turn it up louder and louder, you play it on the radio

Shake it up, groovin' and groovin', show me how far you can go

Live today, say what you mean, you know you gotta walk the talk

And live today like it's your last day, you're makin' every moment count

We ain't going down like that

We got so much more to give

Hey mama, whatcha got to lose

Hey daddy why ya singin' the blues

C'mon people just enjoy the ride

C'mon everybody were going out tonight

(repeat)

Light it up - light it up

COME BACK

Why you wanna hurt me, what'd I ever do to you

You don't have to luv me but you don't have to be so cruel

You had me thinking that our luv was a lie

You had me wondering but I'm not gonna cry

I wanted you so bad, you were the best I ever had

 

So come back baby I want you to be with me

I luv you til the end of time

Come back baby I know you're gonna miss me I luv you til the day that I die

I'm not gonna miss you, not gonna miss you calling my name

I'm so glad it's over, I'm tired of playing all of your games

You had me lying face down on the floor

And now you're laughing on your way out the door

I wanted you so bad, you were the best I ever had

So come back baby I want you to be with me

I luv you til the end of time

Come back baby I know you're gonna miss me I luv you til the day that I die

Come back baby I want you to be with me

I luv you til the end of time

Come on back baby

I wanted you so bad, you were the best I ever had, I needed you

So come back baby I want you to be with me

I luv you til the end of time

Come back baby I know you're gonna miss me I luv you til the day that I die

Come back baby I want you to be with me

I luv you til the end of time

Come back baby I want you to be with me

I luv you, luv you, luv yo

I wanna know you

All this time I wonder whyI can't get no luvin from you

(must be something missing)

No more time to sit and cry, I won't get no luvin from you

(must be something missing)

STATION

Well I'm sittin' at the station watching trains go by

They say I need a ticket but my pockets have been dry for so long

Makes me wanna cry

Well I'm sittin' at the station watching the trains go by

Well my mama always told me where there's a will there's a way

So I smoked my last cigarette and I boarded a train to Houston

See those southern skies

Well I'm going back to Texas, that's where the sunset's high

And I'm going back to Houston only the lord knows why

Ache in my heart, hole in my shoes

Mr. conductor it's all up to you

My true luv has left me with nothing but my name

I'm counting on you to let me board that train - Yeah yeah

Well I'm sittin' at the station

Sittin'at the station

 

Sittin' at the station watching trains go by

They say I need a ticket but my pockets have been dry for so long

I wanna cry

Well I'm sittin' at the station watching the trains go by

And I'm sittin' at the station only the lord knows why

'Cause I'm sittin' at the station

My mama always told me

40 NIGHTS

For forty nights and for forty days I've been waiting on the mainland

Warm nights and the canopy lights have all faded

Now it's all just a memory, many ships have gone sailing

Now I see what was meant for me was worth waiting for

'Cause I've been running just as fast as I can

All this time holding it right in my hand

Let it shine, let it rain

The sun goes down but it will rise again

Let it be 'cause after midnight we'll get the chance to start all over again

Red sky looking down on me, the dark quiet of the night

Fair winds and the following seas are all waiting

Well all my life I was just a child, an old soul in the making

All I needed was luv so I made it

'Cause I've been running just as fast as I can

All this time holding it right in my hand

Let it shine, let it rain

The sun goes down but it will rise again

Let it be 'cause after midnight we'll get the chance to start all over again

If you should whether the stormy seas, hold on to tomorrow

It isn't always what it seems, peaceful days will follow

Well all my life I was just a child, an old soul in the making

All I needed was luv so I made it

Let it shine, let it rain

The sun goes down but it will rise again

Let it be 'cause after midnight we'll get the chance to start all over again

we'll get the chance to start all over again

we'll get the chance to start all over again

we'll get the chance to start all over again

SOMETHING GOOD

Seems like you keep talking but you never say a word

All the things you're saying, sounding more and more absurd

Time is moving faster, it's all I can do to keep from falling down

I stand here suspended, somewhere caught beneath the sky and ground

'Cause I believe in something good

I believe in something more than this

 I believe in something good, in something good

Something Good

Days and years move past us, still you never shut your mouth

Or long enough to listen, or bend your ear to hear the sound

What you're looking for is right in front of you, just turn around

Open your eyes, let the music turn you upside down

'Cause I believe in something good

I believe in something more than this

 I believe in something good, in something good

Something Good

And even when I'm lost you know I'm gonna find it

And even when I fall I'll get back up and ride it

'Cause all these ups and downs, that's what life is

You gotta ride it, you gotta ride - ooh yeah

'Cause I believe in something good

I believe in something just like this

 I believe in something good, in something good

Something Good oh yeah

STAND OR FALL

 

Roll it back to where we started

When everything we ever wanted filled our hearts yet seemed so far away

Flaming youth with dreams of granger

How did we endure the laughter

What we're after never goes away

Well look who's laughing now

Look who's still around

And listen to the sound

When you hear the call, you either stand or fall

If you don't think fast, it may never last

And you can't look back

You gotta just be glad that it came your way and shined

Through the years it made us stronger

I couldn't stand it any longer

Every song I had to learn to play

Crackin' open that new album

Drop the needle turn it louder

Sittin' back and gettin' blown away

Well look who's laughing now

Look who's still around

And listen to the sound

When you hear the call, you either stand or fall

If you don't think fast, it may never last

And you can't look back

You gotta just be glad that it came your way and shined

Well look who's laughing now

Look who's still around

And listen to the sound

When you hear the call, you either stand or fall

If you don't think fast, it may never last

And you can't turn back

You gotta just be glad that it came your way and shined

It shined - It shined

It shined - It shined

It shines

 

BRIGID

 

Be the keeper of the flame

Brigid we have all been waiting for you

Summertime is on it's way again

I hear the whisper on the wind it's calling

Luv is the fire inside you

Just let the feeling guide you

You are the breath that fans the flame

Hurry up and don't look down

You don't wanna sit this one out

It may never come around again

Think fast and don't look back

Just know that your right on track

It's just around the bend

It's a heart that makes a home

Wherever you go it is waiting for you

A kind heart soothes your soul

So look around 'cause someone's waiting for you

Luv is the fire inside you

Just let the feeling guide you

You are the breath that fans the flame

Hurry up and don't look down

You don't wanna sit this one out

It may never come around again

Think fast and don't look back

Just know that your right on track

It's just around the bend

Everything that you need

Everything that you dream is coming

Everything that you need,

Everything that you dream is coming for you

Hurry up and don't look down

You don't wanna sit this one out

It may never come around again

So keep it up, don't look down

Keep it up, keep your shoes on the ground

Keep it up, don't look down

Keep it up

HUSH

 

I know you think there's something wrong but I don't see it that way

I think we're perfect just the way we are

I hope that you decide to say

Hush now, don't you cry

Hush now, say goodbye

Hush now, don't you cry

It's like a mirror looking at your face

Sometimes it's hard for me

But there are things inside that we must face

In your reflection I see me

Hush now, don't you cry

Hush now, say goodbye

Hush now, don't you cry

I've been lied to

I've been cheated

I refuse to be defeated

I wouldn't have it any other way

Been the liar, been the cheater

But you know it's not for me

And I would never do you wrong

Never do you wrong

Hush now, don't you cry

Hush now, say goodbye

Hush now, don't you cry

I've been lied to

I've been cheated

I refuse to be defeated

I wouldn't have it any other way

Been the liar, been the cheater

But you know it's not for me

And I would never do you wrong

Never do you wrong, never do you wrong

BREAK IT ALL DOWN

I knew when I saw you the waiting was over

The loneliness left me and faded away

And you are the one thing I know I can count on

When everything changes, steady we stay

'Cause you are my baby

You are my baby

You are my one true luv

I build the walls then you come and you break 'em all do

ngI start to fall 'til you come and you break it all down

Life seems so hard then you come and you break it all down

You break it all down - You break it all down - You break it all down

The closer you get to it the more that you want it

But each times it comes around you think you found the one and they let you down

But you've got a brave spirit, never ever forget it

They say when it's meant to be you can see the light and fire in their eyes

Brothers and sisters, will help you win this and walk with you through the storm

I build the wall 'til you come and you break 'em all do

I start to fall and you come and you break it all down

Life seems so hard 'til you come and you break it all down

You break it all down - You break it all down - You break it all down

I build the walls then you come and you break 'em all do

I start to fall 'til you come and you break it all down

Life seems so hard 'til you come and you break it all down

You break it all down - You break it all down - You break it all down

LION'S DEN

Into the lion's den

Deliver me once again, it's amazing

Out of the mouth of babes

The child is wise in ways that escape me

I will light a candle for you and leave it in the window burning 'til you return

Life is like a river flowing

Moving fast beyond the point of no return

It's been a long day, I don't wanna fight

So just hold me close and tell me it'll be alright

Luv is the answer - Let's find a way

Just hold me tighter

Out in the world today, we don't know how to say what we're thinkin'

Without judging the other side

Caught in the great divide

Let's start healing

I will light a candle for you and leave it in the window burning 'til you return

Life is like a river flowing

Moving fast beyond the point of no return

It's been a long day, I don't wanna fight

Just hold me close and tell me it'll be alright

Luv is the answer - Let's find a way

Just hold me tighter

(repeat)

In dreams he holds fast to me

Does he know my name

I know when he calls to me I'll be free again

Free again, free again, free again, free

ROSES

Nobody said it was easy

Nobody said it would be this hard either

Cuts me down to size but it forces my soul to rise up

All the luv I could give you

Don't mean a thing if you don't want it too

So I keep on tryin' it's the only thing I can do

'Cause it's the middle of the night and my eyes are wide open

The demons in my mind are tryin' to break through

How come everybody pretends it's all roses in bloom

We all want the same things

We're all lookin' to find our peace of mind

Another sunrise is just another chance for you to shine

Oh I must be crazy to luv you

It's hard enough in my own damn shoes but you're just my size

Yeah you're forcing my soul to rise up

It's the middle of the night and my eyes are wide open

The demons in my mind are tryin' to break through

How come everybody pretends it's all roses in bloom

(repeat)

Sometimes I wanna get high

Sometimes I wanna break down and cry about it

But you're just my size, forcing my soul to rise

It's the middle of the night and my eyes are wide open

The demons in my mind are tryin' to break through

How come everybody pretends it's all roses in bloom

It's the middle of the night, I wanna get high

How come everybody pretends it's all roses in bloom

It ain't roses

Roses in bloom - Roses in bloom

ROUND-N-ROUND

I was up at 4am

Thinking 'bout my dreams and when they might come true

My mind is racing 'round again

Spinning like the wheels on my black on black Ford sedan

A change, another chance to take

Won't you rearrange it please, I gotta chance that one last break

I tried so many times before

I read between the lines and more like the world's biggest telescope

Zoomin' in on every find but here I go again

Round n round n round n round n round

I keep searching

Round n round n round n round n round

Was it something that I did or said

Karma bit the hand that fed

And I go round n round n round n round n round

I know there ain't no guarantees

Ain't lookin for a golden fleece or a pot of gold

Hell I'd settle for a little boost

Some help to push it through and make it to a brighter day - yeah yeah

And when following your heart won't get that record on the charts

Here I go again

Round n round n round n round n round

I keep hoping

Round n round n round n round n round

Like a target in the dark

All my arrows miss the mark again

Still I go round n round n round n round n round

Like a boomerang back to me

I'll pay it forward everything that you bring

And I go round n round n round n round n round

I know there ain't no guarantees

Ain't lookin for a golden fleece or a pot of gold

KEEP THE FAITH

Keep the faith in what you're doing

'Cause I got faith in who you are

Looking out my window listening to the rain fall

Wondering when I'm gonna see it all

Lots of people come and go

There here a while and then they're gone

All the time I'm still keeping' on

Hold tight, be bright

Don't let your star be faded

One day you'll see

You're time wasn't wasted

Keep the faith in what you're doing

'Cause I got faith in who you are

Keep the faith 'cause nothing matters more than it does right now

I think about you all the time, hoping that you're doing fine

Wondering if I ever cross your mind

Sometimes fear comes creeping in, what if no one's listening

Then I look around and see my friends

Hold tight, be bright

Don't let your star be faded

One day you'll see

You're time wasn't wasted

Keep the faith in what you're doing

'Cause I got faith in who you are

Keep the faith 'cause nothing matters more than it does right now

And try to remember you're not alone 

Don't take it for granted let somebody know what you're thinking

Don't keep it inside 'cause nothing matters more than it does right now

Hold tight, be bright

Don't let your star be faded

Keep the faith in what you're doing

'Cause I got faith in who you are

Keep the faith 'cause nothing matters more than it does right now

Keep the faith 'cause nothing matters more than it does right now

Nothing matters more than it does right now

 

RAININ'

On the outside (you try to fight it)

On the inside (it likes to hide)

In the middle too

Feel it moving it's in the air

You can't contain it it's everywhere

Invisible to the naked eye it finds you

No way to stop it from creeping in

Cuts through the heart of my everything

I need it just like it needs you now and forever

On the outside (you try to fight it)

On the inside (it likes to hide)

In the middle too

It's raining', keeps raining', still rainin'

Without your luv it don't mean nothing

It's raining', keeps raining', still rainin'

It's pouring down I need your luvin'

Seeping into your thoughts and words

All your actions come unturned

And all your senses start to burn before you

Takes all my will not to compromise

It comes in waves as I realize

The only way to the truth is to open your eyes

I can see it, can you

On the outside (you try to fight it)

On the inside (it likes to hide)

In the middle too

It's raining', keeps raining', still rainin'

Without your luv it don't mean nothing

It's raining', keeps raining', still rainin'

It's pouring down I need your luvin

(repeat)

It's raining', keeps raining'

(repeat)
