Verse

Sitting alone in my room past midnight

The Demons on cell walls just stare

And sometimes I lie staring out through the moonlight

But Always I lie alone

 

Pre chorus

Cause I’ve made those promises

To stick together always together

And I’ll be there waiting for you through the darkness

 

Instrumental

 

Verse

Remember when I drove 500 miles

to see your pretty face last fall

But now all I know is that smiles are but a memory

cause my love went un-returned

 

pre chorus

Cause I’ve made those promises

To stick together always together

And I’ll be there waiting for you through the darkness

 

Chorus

Pick up the pieces of my broken heart

I’ll never take away what you had from the start

And I’m afraid that you’ll just fade away

And I’ll be left here waiting alone

 

Instrumental –Bridge

 

Cant turn the pages to the chapters of my life

Without the closure, I’ll be standing here…..for life

 

Bridge

Pick up the pieces of my broken heart

I’ll never take away what you had from the start

And I’m afraid that you’ll just fade away

And I’ll be left here waiting alone

Oh oh oh….(repeat several times)

Broken promises…(echoed)

Verse

How can we even try

and start to paint again?

We’re washed out

Just stare into sunsets?

And maybe you can see it?

All the way back to the start.

Its so beautiful…

Before the colors were faded

before the canvas at all

I cried out living as an empty frame on the wall

 

Pre Chorus

Cuz everybody knows

You have my heart, my soul and my dreams

You let them go in the space between

and now I’m lost like the shades of our canvas

so please find me.

 

Chorus

And oh why do I

Just stay in place

through the ash tonight

the colors fly away

(From) A world you left behind

And oh I still try

to paint a life with the shades of grey

the canvas frays and I

am living in the afterglow

 

Interlude

A beautiful sunrise

And explosions in your eyes

 

Verse 

But colors started bleeding down

And soon our canvas turned to grey

It was washed out

And everything had faded

And I know the picture’s changing

Cuz nothing really stays the same

Still beautiful…

But after the colors were faded

And after the canvas had gone

I cry out as an empty frame on the wall

 

Pre Chorus 

Cuz everybody knows

You have my heart, my soul and my dreams

You let them go in the space between

and now I’m lost like the shades of our canvas

so please find me.

Chorus 

And oh why do I

Just stay in place

through the ash tonight

the colors fly away

(From) A world you left behind

And oh I still try

to paint a life with the shades of grey

the canvas frays and I

am living in the afterglow

 

Bridge

I’m living in the afterglow

Starring at the paint on the floor

I’m screaming out through the frame

That will always be yours

 

Bridge 

Now the color’s gone

And its a lonely place to be

 

Chorus 

And oh why do I

Just stay in place

through the ash tonight

the colors fly away

(From) A world you left behind

And oh I still try

to paint a life with the shades of grey

the canvas frays and I

am living in the afterglow

 

Outtro 

Though it wasn’t a masterpiece

The canvas was us

And I’ll be here painting

Just another shade of dust

Verse 1

I fear that we’ve made the biggest mistake

I watched you fade away

And leave our everything, the empty frames of pictures on the wall

And as I say goodbye I saw nothing left

Behind blue eyes

 

Pre Chorus

Go Home and try to bleed the pain away

This ends tonight

 

Interlude

All that’s left are tiny holes on the wall

Of memories we shared

 

Chorus

One moment for a lifetime is all we need

Just pause and freeze frame

So I can see you smile

And try to forget all the pain we caused each other

But our seconds tick by

 

Verse 2

And As I try to break the day to day

I’m buried by the weight

And blinded by white lights of yesterday  

But all around is grey

And as you fled from here // away

I felt something break inside my mind

 

Pre Chorus

Do you remember? The way you held my hand

This can’t be goodbye

 

Chorus

One moment for a lifetime is all we need

Just pause and freeze frame

So I can see you smile

And try to forget all the pain we caused each other

But our seconds tick by

 

Bridge

It’s not us against the world

The Way you’d promise we’d be

But I’ll keep on promising to fight for you

Cuz your always there in my dreams

 

You lie down next to me and sing a lullaby

It takes me far away Singing up I go

It might be fantasy, but baby I don’t mind

Cuz I’m with you singing up I go

 

Chorus

One moment for a lifetime is all we need

Just pause and freeze frame

So I can see you smile

And try to forget all the pain we caused each other

But our seconds tick by

Verse 1

As I watch you pull out the parking lot

I pull my hat over my face

Don’t know when I’ll see you again

But can’t let you see me cry—-in’

And as I watch your car speed away

The tears go right through to my face

Never thought I would say good bye

Staring at your empty space

 

Pre Chorus

And I watch you go

And I watch you go

 

Chorus

Please turn around

And don’t you leave me alone at the wheel

That steers this car

We bought one strange summer night

So long ago

Please turn around

And let’s just be you and me again tonight

But you left me there

Parked next to that empty space

Where you were

Verse 2

And as I sat contemplating my life

Not knowing which way to go

Do I chase you down this road again?

Or should I let you drive away

From a final tense rendezvous

Where I thought you’d make things right

All you could do is say I’m sorry

Well it’s not enough to satisfy

 

Pre Chorus

And I watch you go

And Im still here

Oh-Oh-Oh Why?

 

Chorus

Please turn around

And don’t you leave me alone

At the wheel that steers this car

We bought one strange summer night

So long ago

Please turn around

And let’s just be you and me again tonight

But you left me there

Parked next to that empty space

Where you were

 

Bridge

I’m starring out this glass

Through the cracks of this dirty shield

I let the tears flow as I watch you drive so far from here

I tried to start my car, but thought of all those years

That we spent apart and can’t bring myself to go

This is where I am

Sitting alone thinking of what was

And longing for what could be

 

Interlude

And I watch you go

And I watch you go

 

Chorus

Please turn around

And let’s just be you and me again tonight

But you left me there

Parked next to that empty space

Where you were

Please turn around

Cause none of this can be happening to me

But I watched your car

Fade away as you drove so far from here

Verse

I met a girl and gazed in deep blue eyes

I’m terrified.  Who am I?  Lost in the stare of the angel’s eyes

It wasn’t fame or fortune that brought the moment on, just an everyday story line

You know how they go?

 

Chorus

I’m losing control, I’m barely breathing

And I can feel it coming on, the love surrender

And I’d rather suffocate in this moment, then take another breath

With you I’m alive

 

Verse2

Such a crazy life; another day to live; another fight with the angry mind

But that all changed in this moment when I first saw your eyes

I’m lost in the ocean with the weight left behind

 

Chorus

I’m losing control, I’m barely breathing

And I can feel it coming on, the love surrender

And I’d rather suffocate in this moment, then take another breath

With you I’m alive

 

Outro

Woah’s

And now is my love surrendered? (screamed)

And now is my love surrendered? (screamed)

Verse 1

Give a little bit up to separate yourself

From the world that you face

It’s not the world that I face

And can you try harder, to keep it locked in side?

you know we’ve lost it all

what’s left of us could survive

Pre Chorus

Imagine life without the pain

Imagine what our world could be

Free falling through the space we were meant to be

 

Verse 2

If you could split apart the night and the day

We could beat all of this anger

Hate’s not the only way

And if I could fix you I know I’d trust the plan

I know we’ve lost it all

I’m stuck with these empty hands

 

Pre Chorus

Imagine life without the pain

Imagine what our world could be

Free falling through the space we were meant to be

 

Chorus

What used to be can always be again

If we start over with just a kiss

We could change reality

And you could save us and wipe away those tears

And its time to separate from the dark of your mind.

 

Bridge

Ohhhhhhhhh’s

 

A cloudless sky over white sands

A beautiful sunset kaleidoscope

Reflects the light off of your eyes

Is this better than a day dream

To feel the warmth of your smile

Hits harder than a hurricane

But as the days go by I’m without

And that’s just who we are

 

Chorus

What used to be can always be again

If we start over with just a kiss…

Verse 1

I remember the day you stopped my breath

You turned the lights out and slipped away

And I remember a moment frozen in place

Could it be tonight, I died?

And hear those whispers, traversing time and space

And all their echos, fade away

I’m screaming out loud, don’t want to leave you behind

With your tears on my face I rise

 

Chorus

Somebody  help me, I’m losing control

Pull me back through the door and over to you

I want to stay and breathe one last breath tonight

Cuz baby your gone away, I’m somewhere new

 

Verse 2

And I know its alright, the world just turns this way

Tomorrows a new day of holding on

Please remember our moments frozen in space

In the corner of your mind I’m alive

 

Chorus

Somebody  help me, I’m losing control

Pull me back through the door and over to you

I want to stay and breathe one last breath tonight

Cuz baby your gone away, I’m somewhere new

 

Bridge

Woah’s x 4

Chorus

And Somebody  help me, I’m losing control

Pull me back through the door and over to you

I want to stay and breathe one last breath tonight

Cuz baby your gone away, I’m somewhere new

Chorus

Oh why oh why, I can see your face tonight

It’s somewhere out there underneath the moon

 

Verse 1

Walk alone, thoughts untold

A beggar for some change

I pass and you figure that, the pieces fit, that you would call my name

 

Pre Chorus

And I would take you home before you would change

That you had lost yourself, you were standing in the rain

 

Chorus

Oh why, oh why; I can see your face tonight

Its somewhere out there underneath the moon

And oh why, oh why; I would take your place tonight

There’s nothing more than I can do for you

 

Verse 2

Between mistakes, state your case, a catalyst your told

You pack up your cigarettes and whiskey stains,

Got nowhere to go

Pre chorus

And I would take you home before you would change

That you had lost yourself, you were standing in the rain

 

Chorus

Oh why, oh why; I can see your face tonight

Its somewhere out there underneath the moon

And oh why, oh why; I would take your place tonight

There’s nothing more than I can do for you

 

Chorus

Oh why, oh why; I can see your face tonight

Its somewhere out there underneath the moon

Underneath the moon

I can see your face tonight, its somewhere out there underneath the moon

And oh why, oh why, I would take your place tonight, there’s nothing more than I can for you

Verse 1

My paradise

Where’d you go?

My paradise it fades to the unknown

And all these dreams

They’re so beautiful

But reflections of yesterday

Are just whispers from an echo

 

Pre Chorus

I’m waiting for a better life

Don’t give up the fight nooo

Cuz better times were an hour ago

 

Verse 2

A maze of walls  carved by fingernails

Twisting endless corridors

A labrynth for imagination

but you could be my wrecking ball

and smash them down

cuz life without you is the seconds ticking

towards a final dark destination

 

Pre Chorus

I’m waiting for a better life

Don’t give up the fight no

Cuz better times were an hour ago

 

Chorus

Cut a piece off the edge

A new world worth fighting for

Come dance with me and remember

The love we shared before

 

Outro

And I lost the path away from reality

These memories I’m destined to die alone

So pull me back towards the light

I know I’m worth fighting for

But now I’ll dance alone

Verse

His grandfather is marching to the sea

And his grandfather, woah, oh,

He was here, and now he’s gone away

He’s left home, he’s all alone

 

And as he whispers

Don’t you worry about me

He drew one last breath, and slipped away

And as he marches, into the ocean

From a distance, he thought he heard them say

 

Pre Chorus

Welcome to the edge, your home to reality

Feel free to stay awhile, or march back to the sea

Then he thinks about his life, and leaves

 

Chorus

Pushing past the voice into the crashing waves

He moves towards the bright lights and sees his everything, everything

And now he’s traveling these crowded streets screaming out loud

For the past that he once knew, he’s wishing and he’s wanting.

 

Verse

His grandchildren are growing older yet

And still he wonders, why

That they can’t see him or the signs he’s left behind

So he wades back through the sea and heard the voices say

 

Pre Chorus

Welcome to the edge, your home to reality

Feel free to stay awhile, or march back to the sea

Then he thinks about his life, and leaves

 

Chorus

Pushing past the voice into the crashing waves

He moves towards the bright lights and sees his everything, everything

And now he’s traveling these crowded streets screaming out loud

For the past that he once knew, he’s wishing and he’s wanting.
