Lyrics

Sound Waves and Heartbeats

Sound waves, heartbeats
Led me through dark streets
Breaking bread with liars and thieves
Second guessing what I believe
If there’s one thing I know
I’ve seen love emerge from a black hole
If you listen you might hear it coming
It’s never too late to stop running
And face what you can’t bare to see
Fear is only as real as you make it to be

Sound waves and heart beats
Got my brain fired up on a slow repeat
So steady I can barely speak
Times are tough but this life is sweet

Sound waves, heartbeats
Won’t you keep me company
I can’t seem to find relief
Everything feels outta reach
Tell me where do you go
When the day resigns to its final glow
And you don’t want to be alone
But there’s nowhere left to call your home
Starring at a sea of stars
Who would have thought we could get this far

Sound waves and heart beats
Got my brain fired up on a slow repeat
So steady I can barely speak
Times are tough but this life is sweet

Guarantees

Where you been hiding?
Wish I could go back in time and never let you go
I just can’t help it, you’re always on my mind
And Im dying to know
Would you hold me down
If I’m living in my head
Would you pull me back
If I can’t comprehend
Ohhhhhh what you see in me
Maybe someday I’ll find I am all I need to be
I might make believe
You could set me free
When the truth is always so plain to see
There’s never any guarantees
But I still aim to please
Where are you going?
If you could show me everything that’s on your mind
wonder what I’d find
Would I learn to read the signs if I’m falling out of line
would you hold me close
If I don’t feel right
Would you wait it out
Til we see the light
Ohhhhhhhhhh, on the other side
Maybe we can pass the time through a moonlit night
I might make believe
You could set me free
When the truth is always so plain to see
There’s never any guarantees
But I still aim to please

Old Ways

Wake up
It’s another new day
And I got nothing to say
When all I really want is a change
Nothing ever seems to stay
When I get stuck in my old ways

Watching the time go by
Chain smoking just to feel a little high
Looking for a sign from the sky
Making plans just to buy a little more of your sweet time

Hey now, it’s another new day,
and I got something to say,
I’ve been bending over backwards for change
The problems they just rearrange,
at least I still have my old ways

Watching the time go by
Chain smoking just to feel a little high
Looking for a sign from the sky
Making plans just to buy a little more of your sweet time

Wake up
It’s another new day
And I got nothing to say
When all I really want is a change
Nothing ever seems to stay
When I get stuck in my old ways

Out of Reach

You don’t know me like you think you do
The truth might break you down
If only you knew
I’m not as fragile as you might believe
Got a whole lot of hope
I made a pledge that I would keep
Got a load of patience
That I pray I’ll never need
you sure know how to break me down
At the speed of my heart beat

When I’m left to my own devices
Thank the ground beneath my feet
Been a fool for desperation
If I had a chance to speak
I’d make an escape, but talk is cheap
When words fall short of what you mean
Sometimes you have to wait and see
And let time heal what’s just out of reach

I can’t love you like you need me to
The truth is I tried
but I know that’s nothing new
I’m not the type to go and beg and plead
But it’s clear as day by now
I’m already on my knees
You’re not as hopeless as you claim to be
I pray you find everything
you ever hoped and dreamed

When I’m left to my own devices
Thank the ground beneath my feet
Been a fool for desperation
If I had a chance to speak
I’d make an escape, but talk is cheap
When words fall short of what you mean
Sometimes you have to wait and see
And let time heal what’s just out of reach

Better

I was caught up feeling so content
Around the moment I set myself up for another disappointment
Not what I thought, but nothing seems to be
Exactly what I want has a subtle way of escaping me
I get sick of playing make believe
When everything I want seems to fall right out of my reach
Now I’m moving on to what I can’t quite see
it’s got to be better than anything I think I might need

It’s about to get better
Like a shift in the weather
I can feel it coming on
Like a favorite song
It’s bound to get better
Winter never lasts forever
You can feel the sunshine
If you close your eyes

It’s hard to see we’re all along for the ride
I may never change the world, but I still have my will to survive
As long as I’m here, might as well let it go
So I can fall out of thinking my pride is always In control
There’s nothing like the moment to bring me to my knees
All I know, when I’m alone I hear the same old distant melodies
Playing in my head like a siren telling me
It’s got to get better than how it used to be

It’s about to get better
Like a shift in the weather
I can feel it coming on
Like a favorite song
It’s bound to get better
Winter never lasts forever
You can feel the sunshine
If you close your eyes

True to Yourself

If only you
Would tell me what to do
Maybe then
We could see this through
Instead of being out here on my own
So much I wish I could let you know
Been so many years since I’ve felt at home
So tired of sleeping all alone

Now I’m looking in the rear view mirror
Telling myself it’ll be ok
Starring back at those vacant eyes
I didn’t think that I could face
Reminding me of the advice
I never knew how to take
Be true to yourself
No matter how high the stakes

Why should I
Go and tell the truth
I see the signs
No convincing you
Of something you already believe
Let the powers that be go and set us free
As we search for something that’s just out of reach
Looking for answers we don’t see

Now I’m looking in the rear view mirror
Telling myself it’ll be ok
Starring back at those vacant eyes
I didn’t think that I could face
Reminding me of the advice
I never knew how to take
Be true to yourself
No matter how high the stakes

Been a long road
Been a long road
Been a long road
Just to get this far
When there’s nowhere left to run
I pace beneath the stars

Now I’m looking in the rear view mirror
Telling myself it’ll be ok
Starring back at those vacant eyes
I didn’t think that I could face
Reminding me of the advice
I never knew how to take
Be true to yourself
No matter how high the stakes

The Moment

Take away my expectations
They won’t let up and I can’t rest
Sick of constant calculations
Swimming around inside of my head

Nothing stings like desperation
Keeps me hanging by a thread
There’s a grace in resignation
When it pulls me off of the ledge

Nothing like the moment,
To bring me to my knees
Nothing like the moment
To cure my disease
Nothing like the moment
To take what you can grab
Nothing like the moment
To love what I have

Lead me out of this place I’ve been
I’m in over my head and I can’t seem to swim
Nothing feels right and I just can’t decide
If I’m coming or going or tryin to hide

From the truth I know way down in my soul
got a thousand excuses that won’t let me go
Pulling me down like the water that flows
Straight from my veins to the great unknown

Nothing like the moment,
To bring me to my knees
Nothing like the moment
To cure my disease
Nothing like the moment
To take what you can grab
Nothing like the moment
To love what I have

If there’s one thing I know
We’re all a living mystery
So I never take for granted
Everything within my reach
I find beauty in the miracles
I slowly learn to teach
If I stay inside the moment
There is love beyond belief

Nothing like the moment,
To bring me to my knees
Nothing like the moment
To cure my disease
Nothing like the moment
To take what you can grab
Nothing like the moment
To love what I have

Under the Sun

Erase my inhibitions
There’s nothing more to say
Let the silence ruminate
As it lingers center stage

This is just a passing moment
There’s magic on the way
I might think I hold the answers
But nothings here to stay

I don’t want to wonder anymore
When it’s all said and done
I want to know how it feels to be loved
Like I’m the only one under the sun

You could say that I’m a dreamer
On a mission to create
A little piece of mind
I only hope you can relate

When words don’t seem to flow
And things just won’t go my way
I move closer to the question
Do I accept what I can’t change?

I don’t want to wonder anymore
When it’s all said and done
I want to know how it feels to be loved
Like I’m the only one under the sun

Inspiration comes
In every shape and form
I never claim to know
Exactly what it’s for

I don’t want to wonder anymore
When it’s all said and done
I want to know how it feels to be loved
Like I’m the only one under the sun

Give or Take

Got more to gain
Than I have to lose
I would slip away
If I had to choose

Something more to say
I don’t mean to complain
Wish I could stop running
But I know I can’t stay

Wish I knew why
I get so misdirected
the harder I try
Life provides contradictions

If I knew how to fly
I would shed these blues
Let my thoughts reside
between the sun and the moon

They say the best things in life
Come from letting them go
So I accept my regrets
Nothing more, nothing less
They say you reap what you sew
So I leave room to grow
I do my best not to digress
Cause we're all stars in this fortunate mess

If I could accept
Right where I stand
Without a second guess
I’d resign my demands

Let the elements
direct my flow
And don’t forget
To remind myself that I'm whole

Got time to heal
Even more to learn
Give or take I feel
Like my passion burns

Bright as the ocean
On a brand new day
Like a second chance
That spans past what you can see

They say the best things in life
Come from letting them go
So I accept my regrets
Nothing more, nothing less
They say you reap what you sew
So I leave room to grow
I do my best not to digress
Cause we're all stars in life's fortunate mess

Here's to You

When the night falls and the day has passed
And you don’t know where to go cause you’re moving too fast
Wont you slow down and spend a little time with me

When you can’t think and you’re all out of time
And you’re looking for a dollar but you don’t have a dime
I won’t blame you for taking what you need for free

Let’s make a toast
Here’s to you
And all those times
we made it through
There’s nothing like
Falling into something that feels brand new
Let’s make a toast
Here’s to you
And all those times
we made it through
There’s something bout
Knowing you’ve got nothing else left to lose

When you’re out of luck and you can’t move on
And you keep going back but it feels all wrong
I hope you stay strong
And leave a little room to breathe

When I can’t lie to myself anymore
And all signs are pointing at the keys on the floor
If you wanna take a ride
We can go and get lost along the sea

Let’s make a toast
Here’s to you
And all those times
we made it through
There’s nothing like
Falling into something that feels brand new
Let’s make a toast
Here’s to you
And all those times
we made it through
There’s something bout
Knowing you’ve got nothing else left to lose
