COMFORT

Sitting here, I think about your life
Things you liked, what you wanted to do
Try not to cry, each thing I remember
Cause my love, so strong and so true

I’d most like to know if you remember me
And how that I could get to wherever you will be

Comfort, if you hear me send some comfort
Long to be, always longing to be with you

Wish I could hear the words that you’d say
If you saw what it is I see
Find me a hole away from the cold
Would you even know me when I am old?

I’d most like to know if you remember me
And how that I could get to wherever you will be

Comfort, if you hear me send some comfort
Long to be, we’re always longing to be with you

 

EMPTY PAGES

I was 10 feet tall but only 2 foot wide
Easily could be knocked down quickly could start a fight
Oh I was 12 years old
I was born to be loved I was born to be brave
I was the beating of the drum I was the ace of spades in the 7th grad

I was running with nowhere to go
You could have filled my brain up with pages there was nothing on
I was lost but it wasn’t my fault
I had the strength to endure but had the pride to not surrender at all

Had a few dates in high school but they quickly faded
They were always amusing, they were so overrated
I’d buy an older car and race around at night
I was the only one I knew that could drive like I’d drive
Was there something more

I was running with nowhere to go
You could have filled my brain up with pages there was nothing on
I was lost but it wasn’t my fault
I had the strength to endure but had the pride to not surrender it all

There was a better plan there was a different degree
There was another person living inside me

I was running with nowhere to go
You could have filled my brain up with pages there was nothing on
I was lost but it wasn’t my fault
I had the strength to endure but had the pride to not surrender it all

 

FOR THE GIRL

I’m awfully far away from home
But I’m determined and follow every sign I know
That I know, but I know I’m still a long long way from home

I’ve tried my very best to find
To seek a shelter, but I’m always running out of time
Out of time, I can’t seem to manage time

I did it for the both of us
Was it emotion, was it love
I did it for the both of us
Was it real love
I did it for the both of us

There ain’t no shadows where I’ve been
But there’s a little moonshine and I’m following the path again
Yet again, but again I never make it home again

I did it for the both of us
Was it emotion, was it love
I did it for the both of us
Was it real love
I did it for the both of us

I did it for the girl
I did it for the world
I did it for the girl
I did it for the world

 

GAGAGIRL

We were gonna make amends, we were gonna make up
Repair the damage we had create, we were gonna rebuild
Learning lessons from our past, thank God I had us
You offered me a reason to love than I could never give u

I don’t wanna leave
I don’t ever need another girl

Had our share of ups and downs giving life our best punch
If we found that we were hitting a nerve we’d need a night out of town
Finally went and took the plunge it was long overdue
But the days felt like weeks and the weeks like a month or two

I dont wanna leave
I don’t ever need another girl

I’ve been alone, Ive been alone

 

IN THE ROUGH

There were probably people trying to find me, but I couldn’t tell
Lifting forward the lighter to show me that I wasn’t well
Felt like years in the blind I tumbled wrestled through dirt and rock
Looking forward to nothing but you dear, cause I love you a lot

You lost just like all the others
Girl you’re strong you’re smiling through the struggles
Still you try to pick up all the pieces
Your desire bringing hope to other people

Over hills and over bridges to nowhere take my mind away
Nothing cleans up the trouble that I spread and I need you to say

You’re always dry when everyone is soaking
You’re so high, there’s mountains jealous of you
You can move through what others have been facing
Girl it’s true, you’re the perfect medication

You’re so good you make lovers out of fighters
With your looks, you turn gravel into diamonds
It’s easy to finish what we started, with your words you will heal the broken hearted

You lost just like all the others
Girl you’re strong you’re smiling through the struggles
Still you try to pick up all the pieces
Your desire bringing hope to other people

 

KEPT IT TO MYSELF

I was alone but I wasn’t lonely
Starving to death but I wasn’t hungry
You were on my mind but I kept it to myself

I wasn’t mean but I wasn’t good to you
I was in love but I didn’t cling to you
We were on my mind I kept it to myself

There was a burning like a fire in a well
Touched my face like a hammer would a nail
Living in my dreams but I could never really tell if I was there
I was loving like a mother wants a kid
Fighting the lions that were thrown into the pit
A bed of roses isn’t where I usually slept but I was dead

On the road and there was a ways to go
My life was a map my ride was the sailboat
You were on my mind I kept it to myself

There was a burning like a fire in a well
Touched my face like a hammer would a nail
Living in my dreams but I could never really tell if I was there
I was loving like a mother wants a kid
Fighting the lions that were thrown into the pit
A bed of roses isn’t where I usually slept but I was dead

I had it all I had it all
Finally at home I was feeling at home

 

LIKE A KING

What if I began to sing always dressed up like the king
I was sure and I would claim when I get rich I’ll buy this place

If its alright with me could it be alright with you

Every place I’d go and buy for anyone just what they like
Want the best of this and that so dress me up in pink and black

If its alright with me could it be alright with you

If we bring a little bit of him back
Consider others in the way that we act
Cause he wanted us to live like that

What would people start to think if when I sang my legs would shake
Give a dime to make a call and find I paid your mortgage off

If its alright with me could it be alright with you

If we bring a little bit of him back
Consider others in the way that we act
Cause he wanted us to live like that

Ask me for just anything shrug my shoulders generously
Sequence suit or diamond ring that don’t matter much to me

If its alright with me could it be alright with you

If we bring a little bit of him back
Consider others in the way that we act
Cause he wanted us to live like that

Can we take a little stamp of his face
And stick it over all the trouble we make
Cause he wanted us to live like that

 

SHOW A LITTLE MERCY

Bitter cold in light of sunshine, but our hearts had turned to grey
You were gone but I was willing to carry you away
There was not enough time to understand, to me you felt the same
In that moment still together but you couldn’t stay

I wasn’t ready I wasn’t ready
I wasn’t ready to let you go
Show a little mercy Show a little mercy
I need a little mercy to let you go

Time is gone with you forever, there’s no room left for fear
Finding any little reason so I could keep you here
But I need your love to reach me, I need you to be near
In the home we lived together I need you to appear

I wasn’t ready I wasn’t ready
I wasn’t ready to let you go
Show a little mercy Show a little mercy
I need a little mercy to let you go

 

TRUTH

The good in me has always looked for answers
The better me has always searched for truth
The human in me caused the times I’ve doubted
The man in me forces to see it through

Take away the talents and possessions
Give back all the earnings I was due
Offer up what’s left to those in mourning
Hoping that their lives will be renewed

There’s better roads ahead but I can’t see them
There’s bigger dreams and goals I haven’t knew
You’re forcing me to see a new perspective
But God I only want to be with you

Could it be an answer to my question
I’m beginning to wish I didn’t ask
The only thing that now feels important
Is the only thing I’ll never get to have

There’s better roads ahead but I can’t see them
There’s bigger dreams and goals I haven’t knew
You’re forcing me to see a new perspective
But God I only want to be with you

I don’t wanna live and not be better
I don’t wanna know what I once knew
Nothing else to me feels like it matters
God I only want to know the truth

There’s better roads ahead but I can’t see them
There’s bigger dreams and goals I haven’t knew
You’re forcing me to see a new perspective
But God I only want to be with you

 

WE WERE ONLY FRIENDS

I thought a lot of you back in times when we were young
I felt you close enough to touch I’d keep you in my home
All days would end with you and me talking on the phone
We believed that one of us could always keep the other strong

Then and then again we were only friends
Then and then again we were only friends
Then again we were friends

Its better to have the past than never had you there at all
I’ve learned to love the easy simple things I can control
We talked and sang and laughed a lot sitting on your porch
There’s times and times I think it really hasn’t been that long

Then and then again we were only friends
Then and then again we were only friends
Then again we were friends

Still I’m feeling short of breath maybe you’re the reason why
Did our future stand a chance, could you look me in the eye and say
You Friend, we’ll be good friends

Then and then again we were only friends
Then and then again we were only friends
Then again we were friends

 

WHERE YOU WALK

If you’re lonely now
You gotta keep to yourself
and you better watch out where you walk
Ear pressed to the ground
Careful what you wish for and keep your volume down

Walk for days and miles
You gotta take a little sip before he rain goes outta style
Leaking like a cloud
Sometime you gotta give it all you have

Keep singing across
The boarders of this life can’t keep us apart
Hear the words of gold
Travel in the darkness towards the things I’m told
