Day One

Oh good God what has he done
Traded a heart for a bullet and a mind for a gun
Said he needed a bat to clear the way
Now he won't sit back so he starts to pray
But oh, it ain't so bad
I can still make you laugh
I'm on your side

 

Hanging Around

I used to want the morning
You and me, just hanging around
But I, can't shake this feeling off
Can't shake this dead weight off of my back

It's a troubled place we stay
But we just play it out
You give too much away
Leaves you cold, oh...

Got no place else to go
In a daze, just hanging around
It's a dirt ground we crawl upon
I've stared at your face for much too long

It's a troubled place we stay
Where we just wait it out
Watch us give too much away
Leaves you cold, ohh
Cold, ohhh

I used to want the morning
You and me, just hanging around
It's a troubled game we stage
Where we just play it out
Watch us give too much away
And we just wait it out
And the words you meant to say
And the words I gave away
Leaves you cold, ohhh
Cold, ohhh

Back Of My Hand

Will I be seeing you tomorrow
Will I be seeing you again
God knows we said so little
Won't go so far as to call you a friend

But there's something in your ways
Keeps me vying for a connection
And I know you feel the same
It's become a two-way addiction

Come on and give me your heart
Write it on the back of my hand
Then say it's forever

Well we never really said goodbye
We kinda left it in the air
And as the train pulled off I knew you loved her more

Oh no no no no, I am not afraid to lose
Oh no no no no
Just gimme some time and I'll walk to a different groove

Go on and give her your heart
Write it on the back of her hand
And say it's forever

That's alright, that's o.k., thoughts of you are leaving
That's alright, that's o.k., thoughts of you are leaving...anyway

Come on and give her your heart
Write it on the back of her hand
And say it's forever

Come on and give me your heart...
Come on and give me your heart...

 

Over & Over

Over and over..
We tried to make it
We played all the right games
We took too much for granted

Please don't stray, so far from me
Please don't stray, so far from me again

Over and over..
We made too many plans
When it came to reality
We forgot how to land

Please don't stray, so far from me
Please don't stray so far from me again

Over and over..
We tried to make it
We played all the right games
We took too much for granted

Please don't stray, so far from me
Please don't stray, so far from me yeah
Please don't stray, so far from me
Please don't stray so far from me again

..so far from me

 

Let A Good Thing Go

In the shade of every moment I bled
Such a sorrow was to be expected

I let a good thing go
I let a good thing go

Now every feeling it kicks me to the bone
And takes me under to a place that I have known
There goes my quiet life I used to keep me warm
In the shade of this moment I am born

I let a good thing go
I let a good thing go

In the shade of every moment I bled
Such a sorrow was to be expected
I let a good thing go
I let a good thing go
Good thing go

 

Ran For Miles

Well I got myself a new day
And I got myself a second chance
So I headed to the bus stop
And the sun, the sun was warm on my back

Today I ran for miles, just to see what I was made of
Today I ran for all that was mine

Well I got myself a song inside
And I got myself some full blown daylight
Wanna tell you just how hard it's been
Trying to talk myself out of jumping

Today I ran for miles, just to see what I was made of
Today I ran for all that was mine

Today I ran for miles, just to see what I was made of
Today I ran for all that was mine, just to see what I was made of

Today I ran for all that was mine..

 

What A Day

Five hours from now, you'll be sleeping
I'll be lying awake wondering,
Did we make the right decision?
What a day, what a day we had
What a day, what a day we had
Brian and I decided this year we'll make ourselves believe in everything
I don't know about you but I've had enough of trying to live through doubt
What a day, what a day we had What a day, what a day we had
What a day, what a day we had What a way to go.
What a day, what a day we had
What a day, what a day we had
What a day, what a day we had What a way to go

What a way to go

 

Tear In My Side

Tear in my side, I feel it all
Tear in my side, I feel it all
What its like to be alive and then shot down
Tear in my side, I feel it all
Tear in my side, I feel it all
I feel it, I feel it all
I feel it, I feel it, all
I feel it, I feel it, all
I feel it
What its like to be alive and then shot down
I feel it, all
I feel it
I feel it, all
I feel it
I feel it, all
I feel it
I feel it, all
Tear in my side, I feel it all
Tear in my side, I feel it all
Tear in my side, I feel it all
Tear in my side

 

I Wanna Stay

I wanna stay, out all night with you
Yeah, you make my world all right

No sun was up, today we didn't mind
Too busy making the rain shine

And there goes everything.. and I don't care
Yeah there goes everything...and I just don't care
As long as you're near

I gotta stay, out all night
'til I'm back feeling alright

And there goes everything.. and I don't care
Yeah there goes everything, and I just don't care

As long as you're near...

 

Lucky One (Bird Of Cassadaga)

Aren't you the lucky one

Never need any more than this...

 

My God

My God, hope you're on call
'Cos I maybe in danger of crashing
Before I get to fall
Let's cry boy,
While neighbours have their backs turned
I'm having trouble believing anything you say

I'll keep the car running outside
While you go and make up your mind
Are you staying here or running wild with me
You know I could still love you..

Yeah..

My God, looks like I'm going it alone
Can't wipe the tears away fast enough,
Now I can't see the road
Got a boot full of dreams,
And a pocket full of reasons not to stay
Got a cross of Jesus round my neck,
Hoping he'll help me find my way
So afraid of losing,
Now I'm scared of what I've won
So afraid of leaving,
Now I don't think I can return

Yeah...

And all along there was a need for change
And so I thought I better leave this place
When all I had to do was change my mind,
All I had to do was change, my mind

My God, is it alright if I turn right back around?
'Cos I reckon I fly highest, when my feet are planted.. on the ground

 

Night On My Side

When I hear the sound of laughing
Takes me back to forever
Where the sunset sleeps across the fields
Awoken by my dreams racing

With such a long goodbye,
You knew it would make you cry

The twilight comes to quieten our hearts
My good friends, we were scared of nothing
Well lamplight stretched across my bed
I'm awoken by cars racing

With such a long goodbye,
You knew it would make you cry

 

Pieces Of Glass

Picking them up
Those pieces I've dropped
The love that I stopped
Gonna find some rest
I lied to my friends
I showed him I could
Even told him I would
But then, I gave in

Picking them up
Those pieces I've dropped
The love that I stopped
Gonna find some rest

Gonna find some rest
Gonna find some rest
Gonna find some rest
Gonna find some rest
