THIS IS IT

Here we are
With nowhere else to go
And that's so far
From where we all could be but

If you feel like disappearing
You should take this for what it's worth

This is it
And it's fits
And it feels like this is good enough for me
Could it be
That the grass is always green

There you are
You dream of something better
What's so wrong
With what you thought was true

If all of the colours are disappearing
You should take this for what it's worth

This is it
And it's fits
And it feels like this is good enough for me
Could it be
That the grass is always green

(This is it, This is it, This is it)

If you feel like disappearing
You should take this for what it's worth

This is it
And it's fits
And it feels like this is good enough for me
Could it be
That the grass is always green

This is it
This is it

THE WAY I AM

I'm not very good at just paying attention
I'm not very good at remembering things that you say
I'm not very good at pursuing redemption
I'm not very good at concealing the hand that i play

It's the way I am, you'll never change
The way I am, or re arrange
The way I am, just let me be
The way I am, it's the way I am

I'm not really sure of the coming attractions
I'm not really sure of illusions we read on the wall
I'm not really sure of the preaching we practice
I'm not really sure if we'll notice it before we fall

It's the way I am, you'll never change
The way I am, or re arrange
The way I am, just let me be
The way I am, it's the way I am

I'm not very good at just paying attention
I'm not very good at remembering things
I'm not very good at pursuing redemption
I'm not very good at concealing the hand that i play

When I'm trying so hard just to beat you
I'm not really good at controlling my fate
I'm not really good at controlling my anger
I'm not really good at subduing my hate
I'm not really good
I'm not really good
I'm not really good

It's the way I am, you'll never change
The way I am, or re arrange
The way I am, just let me be
The way I am, it's the way I am

BELIEVE
 
I sit alone and watch the clock
Trying to collect my thoughts
All I think about is you
And so I cry myself to sleep
And hope the devil I don't meet
In my dreams that I live through

Believe in me
I know you've waited for so long
Believe in me
Sometimes the weak become the strong
Believe in me
This life's not always what it seems
Believe in me
'Cause I was made for chasing dreams

All the smiles you've had to fake
And all the shit you've had to take
Just to lead us here again
I never have the things to say
To make it all just go away
To make it all just disappear

Believe in me
I know you've waited for so long
Believe in me
Sometimes the weak become the strong
Believe in me
This life's not always what it seems
Believe in me
'Cause I was made for chasing dreams

It's my life
It's my choice
Hear my words
Hear my voice
And just believe

I sit alone and watch the clock
Trying to collect my thoughts
All I think about is you

If you believe in me
Life's not always what it seems
Believe in me
'Cause I was made for chasing dreams
Believe in me
I know you've waited for so long
Believe in me
Sometimes the weak become the strong
Believe in me
This life's not always what it seems
Believe in me
'Cause I was made for chasing dreams

SAVE ME
 
This dark room
Another cigarette
The carpet's strewn
I'm getting sick of it
The end is near
I'm in the thick of it
And i'll be there soon
If you can handle it

Just save me
From all that i am
You save me
For the fuck of it
Save me
Just hold out your hand
You save me
For all of it

I try to speak myself
You can do it to
Need no one's help
I'm needing only you
So just pray for me
And deliver it
You never take me
What i'm giving

Just save me
From all that i am
You save me
For the fuck of it
Save me
Just hold out your hand
You save me
For all of it

And all that i've become is you
The only good in me is you
And after all of this
The day will come to find out 
Will you take me
Or forsake me
So pray for me
Am i forgiven
For what you take from me

Just save me
From all that i am
You save me
For the fuck of it
Save me
Just hold out your hand
You save me
From all of it
Come save me

Pray for me
Am i Forgiven

ALL I WANT
 
What I leave,
And when you go,
What I see,
And what you show,
And what I guess,
And when I don't,
Is something you all ready, all ready know,

I can't live without,
All I think about,
All I want is you,
You're all I dream about,
I can't live without,
All I want is you,

The things I do,
What I go through,
And all I say,
When Im away,
And what I make,
The shit that I take,
Is something you all ready, all ready know

I can't live without,
All I think about,
All I want is you,
You're all I dream about,
I can't live without,
All I want is you,

Ohhh,...
Is you,
Is you,
Is you,
Is you,
You're all I dream about,
That I can't live without,
All I want is you
 
I can't live without,
All I think about,
All I want is you,
You're all I dream about,
I can't live without,
All I want is you,
I just can't live without you,
When all I think about is you,
And all I want is you

LOST ALONG THE WAY
 
We change the rhyme forget the reason
Waiting for the change of season
Drawing near, It's almost here
So save tonight, forget tomorrow
Say goodbye to time we borrow
It's always there, It's in the air

Like voices in the rain
Like a song without a name
Like angel's wings
And whisperings
Of love we lost
And found along the way

Do you take the time to really wollow
In the footsteps that you follow
Gets you there, Gets you anywhere
So here today and gone tomorrow
With the time you had to borrow
It's always there, It's in the air

Like voices in the rain
Like a song without a name
Like angel's wings
And whisperings
Of love we lost
And found along the way

Like voices in the rain
Like a song without a name
Like angel's wings
And whisperings
Of time we lost
And found out in the rain
Like a song without a name
Like angel's wings
And whisperings
Of love we lost
Of love we lost
And found along
The way

We found along the way

BREAK AWAY
 
Misery
The company it keeps
History
All these things
We keep repeating

Like a wheel
That keeps turning

If i could break away
From this moment
Break away
What is real
Never show it
Break away
How i feel
If i could break away

Apathy
The ignorance it breeds
The tragedy
Of all these things
We keep repeating

Like a wheel
That keeps turning

If i could break away
From this moment
Break away
What is real
Never show it
Break away
How i feel
If i could break away

Break away
If i could break away
Break away

If i could break away
From this moment
Break away
What is real
Break away
Never show it
Break away
How i feel
If i could break away
If i could break away
If i could break away

TANGLED UP IN YOU
 
You're my world
The shelter from the rain
You're the pills
That take away my pain
You're the light
That helps me find my way
You're the words
When i have nothing to say

And in this world
Where nothing else is true
Here i am
Still tangled up in you
I'm still tangled up in you
Still tangled up in you

You're the fire
That warms me when i'm cold
You're the hand
I have to hold as i grow old
You're the shore
When i am lost at sea
You're the only thing
That i like about me

And in this world
Where nothing else is true
Here i am
Still tangled up in you
I'm still tangled up in you

How long has it been
Since this storyline began
And i hope it never ends
And goes like this forever

In this world
Where nothing else is true
Here i am
Still tangled up in you
Tangled up in you
I'm still tangled up in you
Still tangled up in you

RAINING AGAIN

a piece of glass
in the sand under your feet
it cuts you deep
and makes you hate the beauty that you see
and you wonder where you are
how you ever got so far
now you question what went wrong
it's your heart
 
it's rainin' again
there's a dark cloud over your head
it follows you 'round
it's bringing you down
it's rainin'...it's rainin' again
 
a wilted rose
and your decay is all you see
you buy the flower
and miss the beauty that is yours to fray
Realize you are so far
from the things that matter now
and you only wonder how
it's your heart
 
It's rainin' again
there's a dark cloud over your head
it follows you 'round
it's bringing you down
it's rainin'...it's rainin' again
 
come on
come on, get it right
come on
come on, make it right
come on
come on, it's all right
 
It's rainin' again
there's a dark cloud over your head
it follows you 'round
it's bringin' you down
it's rainin'...it's rainin' again
 
It's rainin'...rainin' again
there's a dark cloud over your head

RAINY DAY PARADE
 
You the great pretenders
Blood to paint your pictures
While you're stepping over
Fallen people
Lying in the streets
You the great offenders
Only your views matter
While your heart grows colder

I wish that you could
Open up and feel
For a while
See if you can take it
Feel you're alive 
And this is all part of it
Could it be that we're all afraid
Cause it feels
Like a rainy day parade

We the great believers
Blood is legal tender
And i will not surrender
What it was our fathers
Died to bear
We the people stated
Not negotiated
Just to be forgotten

I wish that you could
Open up and see
For a while
See if you can take it
Feel you're alive 
And this is all part of it
Can't you see
That we're all afraid
Cause it feels
Like a rainy day parade

What i see
Is all too real
What i need
Is what you steal
And all i reap
Is what you take
Upon my back
On which you break
And i just wish
That we could
Rise above this

Feel
For a while
See if you can take it
Your life this is all part of it
Could it be that we're all afraid
Cause it feels
Like a rainy day parade

THE CORNER
 
It sheltered me from nothing but the weather
I called it home for a moment of my life
This place i see just doesn't look familiar
I wonder if it looks the same inside

So there's the corner that I sat on
The road i walked home in the rain
And there's the star I used to wish on
It all just seems like yesterday

Days go by
Nothing's getting clearer
Can't change my mind
My troubles are the same
The Faces change
But the names they are familiar
These streets I see
Withstand the test of time

So there's the corner that I sat on
The road i walked home in the rain
And there's the star I used to wish on
It all just seems like yesterday

And the stars
Stars still shine
Shine down through the rain

And there's the corner that I sat on
The road i walked home in the rain
And there's the star I used to wish on
It all just seems like yesterday

And I stare out this dirty window
As this world goes slowly by
And somewhere out there is the future
That I once thought had passed me by

It sheltered me from nothing but the weather

NOTHING LEFT TO SAY
 
Talk to me
You never
Talk to me
Do we suffer
From social atrophy
And when the conversation's over
When the conversation's over

We've taken what's been given
And we throw it all away

Walk with me
Come on and
Walk with me
Take a look
Around you
Do you like
What you see

We've taken what's been given
And we throw it all away
It's hard to be forgiven
When there's nothing left to say

When the conversation's over
The silence just gets in the way
Conversation's over

Talk to me
Don't ever
Talk for me

We've taken what's been given
And you throw it all away
It's hard to be forgiven
When there's nothing left to say

There's nothing left to say

SOMETHING LIKE ME - iTunes

shards of broken pieces 
shattered on the floor
it’s not enough to bleed
tears and angry voices 
cracks around the door
no apologies

but every time you say you love me
i just have to stop and catch my breath
how can somebody love something like me
if you could only say you're sorry
there is nothing in this world i can't forget
waiting here for you to set me free

toys and colored pencils 
scattered on the floor
underneath my feet
you're crying over nothing 
you're always wanting more
you never go to sleep

but every time you say you love me
i just have to stop and catch my breath
how can somebody love something like me
and every time i feel i’m falling
you'll be there to save me from myself
little angel watching over me

our taxis in the driveway 
our bags are at the door
and it still kills me to leave

but every time you say you love me
i just have to stop and catch my breath
how can somebody love something like me
and every time i feel i’m falling
your the one's who saved me from myself
you give me something to believe

and with you here 
these cracks and tears 
fade away

THE TRUTH - iTunes

It's 3 am, it's cold outside.
And you can't sleep.
Is it from your conscience talking
to the skeletons you keep?

Everytime you try to speak,
only craziness comes out.
But she can't turn the other cheek.
You can't help how it comes out.

So when did you decide
to embrace what you hate to survive?
Cause that's not what got us here.

It's 8am and still no sleep.
But you don't care.
I don't know why I keep on calling
Doesn't get us anywhere.

Every time I try to speak,
you never let my words come out.
I can't turn the other cheek.
and I can't help how this comes out.

So when did you decide to
embrace what you hate to survive?
Cause that's not what got us here.
Honestly...

I don't know how you could see
Something you once saw in me
Just another volunteer

to wonder if you ever lie awake in bed
and think about the things you said
Your dedication shows, but you can't see
your eyes are closed

And all the promises you made
to me, they seem to fade
and leave me with this dissapointment,
that these words could never show

When the ride is over
and you're hanging by a thread,
as your house of cards is falling,
just remember what I said.

So when did you decide to
embrace what you hate to survive?
Cause that's not what got us here.
And honestly...

I don't know how you could see
something you once saw in me
Just another volunteer for you to blame
