Album Lyrics:

Stranger

I saw you walkin all alone, yeah
At a slow pace
You were lookin
At the sidewalk

I wondered if you saw me pass by
You looked through me
Like you were thinkin
What were you thinking

It was a cold and rainy night
Why were you walkin
Alone in the wet rain
On a Friday

It must have been a long day for you
A mishap or two
You looked lonely
Oh so lonely

Were you tired
Did the days seem to be longer
Was there someone that you longed for
Did you loose somethin you loved

I saw you walkin all alone, yeah
At a slow pace
You were lookin
At the sidewalk

I wondered if you saw me pass by
You looked through me
Like you were thinkin
What were you thinkin, hmmm…

Sometimes Love

Found a sweet face
And let it slip into my life
Found a safe place
Where I could run away and fly
To the blue sky
To the blue sky

Found a good soul
That I could share with every whisper
Found a heart full
Someone who would always be there
In a cold night
Or a long cry

But sometimes love, can melt away
Sometimes love, can give you pain
But it’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay

Left a sweet face
And let it slip out of my life
Left a safe place
And it was hard to say goodbye
But it’s alright, yes it’s alright

All alone now and it feels different every day
Growin stronger, but feelin weaker all the same
Sometimes lonely and sometimes full of strength to say
I wanna say

That sometimes love can pull ya down
Sometimes love needs to be found again
Sometimes love, sometimes love, sometimes love

Oh sometimes live can pull ya down
Sometimes love, needs to be found again, oh love
Sometimes love, sometimes love, sometimes love

Undone

I see your eyes light up
Whenever you smile, hmmm, yeah
I hear your heart go wild
Whenever I touch your lips to mine

I study your deep brown eyes full of wonder
I can’t believe all of the life you’ve uncovered
The simplest things leave you haunting my mind
I want to keep you forever

But can I stay with you
Can I lead you away from the world that you know
Do I really deserve to be selfish like this
I’m undone
Should I go

I stand by your side
A desire to touch you
The smell of your skin leaves me ridged and wanting

Unable to render your mind
Your mind you’re a mystery
A question, a smile, you breath and I am free

But can I stay with you
Can I lead you away from the world that you know
Do I really deserve to be selfish like this
I’m undone
Should I go, should I go

No, no, no I will not go
I’m addicted to you and I think that you know
That I love you so
And I won’t leave you here all abandoned alone
No I will not go

My arms will surround you and pull you towards me
Touching my lips to yours ever so carefully
I give you my soul

I love you
I love you

I see your eyes light up
Whenever you smile
I hear your heart go wild
Whenever I touch your lips to mine

Ocean

You wanna step in, but your scared of the outcome
You wanna be brave, but you know
Your gazin across it, your hearts sayin listen, you go

It starts at the edge where the wave barely touches
And draws the sand under your toes
It’s calm and its cool and it’s taunting you further, you go

You find yourself movin a little bit forward
The waves rollin over your knees
You can’t seem to stop there’s a little more pull now
You breath

And before you know it
Your drawn out to the sea
And before you know it
There’s no turnin back, cause your in it to deep

You look in his eyes, and your scared of the outcome
His smile draws you in but you know
You’ve been here before and it ended in heartache, will you go

His smile’s contagious he’s makin you laugh now
Chippin away at the walls
You unlock your heart cause you might let him enter
You fall

And before you know it
Your drawn out to the sea
And before you know it
There’s no turnin back cause your in it to deep

And before you know it
Your drawn out to the sea
And before you know it
There’s no turnin back cause your in it to deep

Raise Your Head

Raise your head
Chin up high
Lift your eyes up
And let the tears fall
Let the tears fall

Look around
Find your place
Search your heart out
And remember, just remember
My face

Burn your anger
Let it out
Mourn your sorrows
And move forward
Only forward
Away from all doubt

Away from heart ache and all fear
You think I’m gone, but I’m still here

Your clingin to the past afraid to move along without me
Feelin selfish and alone and scared to go for fear you’ll go without me
Chalk it up to life to take the people that you love
But you’ve been down for long enough
Raise your head, let the tears fall, chin up high, lift your eyes up, and let go now, just let go now
Raise your head, burn your anger, chin up high
Lift your eyes up and let go now, just let go now
And let go now, just let go now.

A Certain Way

There is a certain smile you wear
And it’s only for me
And when I see it there I know that your happy

And there’s a certain look in your eye
When you’re lookin at me, my my
And when I see it there I know that your mine
I know that your mine
I know that your mine

It all sounds silly
And I’m sure you wouldn’t agree
But I know those eyes are only for me

And if you look close enough
Then you will see
The same eyes in me
The same eyes in me

And there’s a tender heart inside
And you share it with me
And when you hold me through the night
I am happy

And there’s a simple word you say
And you wouldn’t believe
How much it means to hear you say you love me
How much it means to hear you say you love me
How much it means to hear you say you love me

Back Again

The anger is over
The silence begins to fall
The ashes are falling
Around me, all around

And I know it will be over
And I know it all comes to an end
And I know that I will make it
Through what seems like hell and back again

The laughter will return
The solace will find a way out
The crying will wash away
The sorrow and the doubt

And I know it will be over
And I know it all comes to an end
And I know that I will make it
Through what seems like hell and back again

And I know it will be over
And I know it all comes to an end
And I know that I will make it
Through what seems like hell and back again
Through what seems like hell and back again

Something Samba

My instinct was to smile
My heart began to race
My knees conspired to weaken
As I looked into his face

I held my smile firmly
And wondered deep inside
What was he thinkin of me
I tell you I won’t lie, oh
I tell you I won’t lie, no no

I was scared inside
Scared to even speak out loud
Scared to look into his face
But hesitant to look away

I was scared inside
Scared to even speak out loud
Scared to look into his face
But hesitant to look away

Remarkable

What do you do when the world won’t listen
What do you do when there’s nothin left
How is it you feel so great for one moment
Then down and depressed like there’s nothin left for you

How do you handle life thrown against you
How do you keep that smile on your face
How do you love all the people who’ve left you
How do you begin to retrace your steps

You are a great work of art to the world
You’re extreme and alive
And you add so much good to this life

Sometimes it seems you believe
That you’re set up to fail
You are, you are, you are, remarkable

You are, you are, you are, remarkable

Are you afraid, of anything out there
Or do you find yourself weathered and worn
Do you believe in life after this one
And will we be together even after we’ve all gone forever

You are a great work of art to the world
You’re extreme and alive
And you add so much good to this life
Sometimes it seems you believe
That you’re set up to fail
You are, you are, you are, remarkable
Oh you are, you are, you are, remarkable

Anxiety

I’ll be there
When your heart is cold and no longer
Wants to carry on

When the fear’s
Crawling through your skin
You’ll grow stronger
You’ll grow stronger, you will

When your heart’s
Pounding through your veins
And you’re trying
To catch your breath again

Don’t give in
You know this one you can win
Don’t feel sorry
Don’t feel sorry, no

Just reach out and touch the sky
Think of those you can rely upon
Remember those that make you smile
Always

ust reach out and touch the sky
Think of those you can rely upon
Remember those that make you smile
Always

I’m not far
Not as far as you believe
Just be careful
Don’t let your heart deceive

Reach your hands
Out into the dark and see
You were never
Never meant to be
Alone and without me, no

Just reach out and touch the sky
Think of those you can rely upon
Remember those that make you smile
Always

Just reach out and touch the sky
Think of those you can rely upon
Remember those that make you smile
Always

Escape the Dream

Watching the dark sky
The night’s flawless lights
The moonlight
Reflecting off the dark wild water speeding by

Turn off the headlights
And drive by the full moonlight
Away from all the cities and the people crowding in

Master the way
His lips touched your skin
Pulling him closer
Breathe him in
Reaching to touch
In the nightmare you live
Escape the dream now and lift your head

To the bright lights
Swerve right
Back to real life
Rubber screams through a dark night
A vicious pound in your chest

Back to a close call
The side of the road
All alone
You could have sworn he was right there
Reaching out with his hand

Master the way
His lips touched your skin
Pulling you closer
Breathe him in
Reaching to touch
In the nightmare you live
Escape the dream now and lift your head

The pain is real, oh
And you can feel, a creature that’s stirring inside
The screams are real, oh

Turn up the headlights
Ignition on
Put your foot down
Cut your way through the dark night
Holding sanities edge

Inhale the lungs fill
Shaking the head makes the tears fall
Moving away from this dark hole
Eyes straight focused ahead

And forget the way
His lips touched your skin
Pulling you closer
Breathing you in
Turning away
From the nightmares you’ve lived
Escape the dreams now and lift your head
Escape the dreams now and lift your head

Simple Song

This is a simple song
No fancy chords or fancy lyrics to go along
Cause all I need for it to do
Is to show how I feel for you
This is a simple song, yeah

And I don’t need no 7ths 11ths or 13ths
And I don’t need no basses drums or solo backups
Cause all I need for it to do
Is to tell you I love you
I love you

Been sittin around forever
Just wonderin how to say those words
And wonderin when the best time would be
To give it up
And give it to the world

So I wrote a simple song
No fancy chords or fancy lyrics to go along
Cause all I need for it to do
Is to tell you I love you
I love you, yeah

I love you, oh I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you, I love you, yeah…
A simple song, oh a simple simple song…
