LYRICS

Debut Album

Only Love

Forget about tonight Forgive away tomorrow Speak of only love Despite the deepest sorrow 

Forget about the words Forgive the reckless actions Speak of only love The queen of all distractions 

But Iʼm the king of everything Take this cup away from me Let it pass before I leave Take this cup away from me My God 

Forget about the lies Forgive those who abuse you Speak of only love You know they’re confused too 

Forget about your world Forgive human desires Speak of only love And I will take you higher 

Cause Iʼm the king of everything Know this cup is all for me All shall pass eventually You are the love the world has seen My Son

Be Yourself

I ainʼt seen what youʼve seen

I ainʼt been where you have been

I never claim to, I never want to

I never will be just like you

Canʼt you see that Iʼll never be the epitome of this American Dream?

But who called it a dream anyway?

Weʼre always searching for something else and something more

But did you know?

If you wanna be somebody (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Go off and be yourself (Go off and beyourself)

If you wanna be somebody (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Go off and be yourself

From the time that we are small

Weʼre taught that being perfect is a possibility

Spelling bees, little league, talent shows and show and tell

Lord, we all wanna be the richest man in this town

If you wanna be somebody (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Go off and be yourself (Go off and be yourself)

If you wanna be somebody (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Go off and be yourself

Get down with your bad self

If you wanna be somebody (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Go off and be yourself (Go off and be yourself)

If you wanna be somebody (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Go off and be yourself (Go off and be yourself)

If you wanna be somebody (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Go off and be yourself (Go off and be yourself)

If you wanna be somebody (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Quit trying to be someone else

Last Train

I remember being free I remember everything He wanted us all the same So evil plans were made 

All too weak to fight So they treat us all alike But none of us look the same On this God forsaken train 

Thereʼs sadness everywhere And strangeness in the air Now all of us look the same With different numbers for our names 

Someone has to die for you to stay alive Someone has to die for you to stay alive

Connie & Blyde

We are not lovers But making love is easy Boy/Girl, believe me Oh you know that I could never be your girl/man But I could stay out every night and dance under the moon with you But youʼve heard it all, Iʼm nothing to put your faith in Before you hold my hand, consider letting go 

Cause I am nothing but a place to hide And you are nothing but a hell of a time So if you want to take a ride with me Then I will gladly show you what it means to be free 

Sing another melody Youʼll never get the best of me I think, I think Iʼm drowning in your sea Composed of only bittersweet, the finest whiskey in the east Will grace my tongue before I sleep, but I know that youʼll be leaving Donʼt think that youʼre the first, you better know that you wonʼt be the last One day weʼll all look back and laugh 

Cause I am nothing but a place to hide And you are nothing but a hell of a time So if you want to spend the night with me Then, I will gladly share your sweet company 

I am nothing but a place to hide And you are nothing but a hell of a time So if you want to spend your life with me Then I will gladly sing your sweet harmony

Play

Look at this place around us Look at all the people Watching and waiting And looking for something thatʼs thereʼs for the taking Something to make sense out of this crazy world that weʼre living in Out of this ultimatum that weʼre dealing with Just look at the morning paper or the evening news Weʼre all used and abused And weʼre forced to choose Should we give ‘em hell or give ‘em shoes? Or drop a few more bombs away Or outlaw guns and donʼt let kids pray Camo or the Rainbow What about the shade of grey? 

We ainʼt gotta choose sides today We ainʼt gotta choose sides tomorrow Let the kids go out and play Weʼre gonna be ourselves today 

Walking down the street Never felt so much like a ghost town Everybodyʼs walking around Smiles upside down, staring at the ground But every now and then You know/when we look up at the sky We all wonder why Is there anyone up there? Why canʼt he hear us cry? 

We ainʼt gonna find God today We ainʼt gonna find God tomorrow Let the kids go out and play Weʼre gonna be ourselves today 

If you wanna fight all the good in life you can And if you wanna believe that your hate will get us anywhere Then you can stand beside yourself all alone at the end of the road And for the rest of us, weʼll do fine on our own 

Yeah, weʼll do fine on our own 

Weʼre gonna be ourselves today Weʼre gonna be ourselves tomorrow Let the kids go out and play Weʼre gonna be ourselves today (Weʼre gonna be ourselves, weʼre gonna be ourselves) 

We ainʼt gotta choose sides today We ainʼt gonna find God tomorrow (No, no, no) But everythingʼs gonna be okay Weʼre gonna be ourselves today

Dream Song

As you sleep, everything is at peace You start to dream and anything becomes possible You lie in your bed and visions coming swirling through your little he d Youʼre ll lone for now 

But all I can think of is the worst I canʼt keep these thoughts away I know the darkness is coming soon I hope these dreams are not here to stay 

One more night One more night One more night, I will lose all hope These dreams of mine just wonʼt let me go Let me go now Let me go now Let me go now 

As you know, this is not your fault But these dark dreams, they will steal it all The lie to you never gives you any comfort I tell you my friend, this I know 

But all I can think of is the worst I canʼt keep these thoughts away I know the darkness is coming soon I hope these dreams are not here to stay 

One more night One more night One more night, I will lose all hope These dreams of mine just wonʼt let me go Let me go now Let me go now Let me go now 

All I can think of is the worst I canʼt keep these thoughts away I know the sunrise will come up soon 

And that these dreams are not here to stay 

One more night One more night One more night, I will lose all hope These dreams of mine just wonʼt let me go 

One more night One more night One more night, I will lose all hope These dreams of mine just wonʼt let me go Let me go now Let me go now Let me go now

Will We Ever Know

He spends his days screaming at the sky Haunted by a lover, he canʼt seem to sleep at night Finding fault in everything, shouting up at God Looking for a reason, looking for something He roams the streets at night in search of another her Too many faces passing, his vision starts to blur Falling to the floor, shouting up at God What am I hear for? Is there really something more? 

Will we ever know? (Will we ever find?) Is there a reason? (One weʼve all been looking for) Is there an answer? (Thereʼs gotta be something more) Will we ever know? 

She spends her days being everybodyʼs favorite Walking the fine line and never losing sight of it Praying for everyone, always looking up to God Looking for a reason, looking for something She always faked a smile and pretended to be content But she always wanted more than the simple life she was given As she left the driveway, she looked right up at God Saying, what am I here for? Is there really something more? 

Will we ever know? (Will we ever find?) Is there a reason? (One weʼve all been looking for) Is there an answer? (Thereʼs gotta be something more) Will we ever know? 

Will we ever know? Will we ever find? Is there a reason? One weʼve all been looking for Is there an answer? Thereʼs gotta be something more Will we ever know? Will we ever know? 

Will we ever know? Will we ever find? Is there a reason? One weʼve all been looking for Is there an answer? Thereʼs gotta be something more Will we ever know?

Take It In Stride

I do not like the way That you throw your life away But who m I Am I Am I Am I To be giving you advice I donʼt know why I even try But who m I Am I Am I Am I 

Hurricane is blowing through But you take it in stride You gonna take it in stride Itʼll blow right through you But you take it in stride You gonna take it in stride You gonna take it in 

And you think you are the queen But you donʼt know everything (You think you do, you think you do) But its lie A lie A lie A lie And you think you got it made And that pretty face will never fade away (fade away) But its lie A lie A lie A lie 

Hurricane is blowing through But you take it in stride You gonna take it in stride Itʼll blow right through you But you take it in stride 

You gonna take it in stride You gonna take it in 

Hurricane is blowing through But you take it in stride You gonna take it in stride Itʼll blow right through you But you take it in stride You gonna take it in stride 

Hurricane is blowing through But you take it in stride You gonna take it in stride Itʼll blow right through you But you take it in stride You gonna take it in stride You gonna take it in

Gotta Have You

You could whisper Almost anything And it would immediately steal my attention Bite your bottom lip Act like you donʼt know what youʼre doing Iʼm just boy and you know just how to get me going Is this responsible, I think not, b by This is spontaneous Maybe even bit contagious I am addicted to every little thing that you do So come little closer dear Iʼve got something I have to tell you 

I need you I want you I gotta have you (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 

I need you I want you I gotta have you 

I could/can almost Taste those lips From across this crowded room But Iʼd rather have them close to mine And here you come now You start to move somehow You got that fire in you smile Now your hand is in my pocket Close the blinds, Iʼm all yours Slam the door, just make sure you lock it I’m addicted to every little thing that you do So come a little closer dear Iʼve got something I have to tell you 

I need you I want you I gotta have you (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 

I need you I want you I gotta have you 

I need you like the summer trees need the breeze Youʼre blowing through my mind and I need you all the time And I need you just like Coltrane needed Chambers You got the time but girl youʼre making me lose my mind And I need you like the autumn streams need the leaves Youʼre colorful, you keep me warm/youʼre so beautiful And you got it/you keep me going on I need you way more than I can stand Iʼm falling over (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)  

I need you I want you I gotta have you (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 

I need you I want you I gotta have you 

I need you I want you I gotta have you (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 

I need you I want you I gotta have you

Blindman

I have seen the seven seas The blindman said to me I have held the treasures of a thousand kings I was there before Someone decided to bite the apple And Iʼll be right here Preparing for the final battle 

Are you the one I heard about? The one that Iʼve been taught to fear You caught me at my darkest hour But Iʼm still standing here 

That isaI my precious boy Youʼve been taught that I only destroy But if you take little walk with me Iʼll show you things beyond your wildest dreams I shook his hand and I felt regret A fiery feeling I wonʼt forget Did I just make a deal with the devil? 

Are you the one I heard about? The one that Iʼve been taught to fear You caught me at my darkest hour But Iʼm still standing here 

On our little walk through the night He revealed the mysteries of life But he began walking and speaking in circles And then I woke up 

Are you the one I heard about? The one that Iʼve been taught to fear You caught me at my darkest hour But Iʼm still standing here 

Are you the one I heard about? The one that Iʼve been taught to fear You caught me at my darkest hour But Iʼm still standing here

Singles

Surrender

I want you to know That I will go most anywhere if you are there Edge of the earth Baby, I donʼt care, I will Make your dreams come true Try my damndest to be the man thatʼs good enough To love the girl heʼs proudest of, I swear I swear 

If you wanna cry, I will dry your eyes If you wanna fight, I surrender Surrender 

I apologize For every time I lost myself to rage For every drunken day I lost my way But I will listen more With open ears and open eyes and open arms To hold the one my open heart adores Oh, my lover 

If you wanna cry, I will dry your eyes If you wanna fight, I surrender Surrender 

Drive you to church Iʼll stay in the parking lot Got a lot of things on my mind Got a lot of other things I need to find Take you downtown Iʼll open every door Lover, I will give you more than I know how Now, weʼre at the show Iʼll try to make them move You know its hard to keep the groove when Iʼm watching you You lovely distraction Drive home like the king and queen of the town My baby, my ears are ringing now Look at all we did, just a couple of kids 

I wish this trip would never end Oh, my lover 

If you wanna cry, I will dry your eyes If you wanna fight, I surrender 

I surrender everything I surrender everything I surrender everything I surrender everything I surrender everything I surrender everything I surrender everything I surrender, I surrender 

Surrender Surrender Surrender

Work

Another battle, another war And it’s all over the news How could losers be so sore? How could you be so confused? Thenagain, Iʼm not surprised Because they love to lie to you Broken people, dry your eyes Weʼve got a lotta work to do 

Donʼt try to cover up the truth With storylines that have no proof Cause we can see straight through you Weʼve got a lotta work to do 

Them people marching in the streets Waving flags of distant lands Will not accept defeat Til they have blood on their hands Thereʼs not one right, thereʼs not one wrong And All your senses lie to you But I pray that you will hear my song Weʼve got a lotta work to do  

Donʼt try to cover up the truth With storylines that have no proof Cause we can see straight through you Weʼve got a lotta work to do 

Resistance is victory Weʼve heard that time or two I know weʼll never retreat Weʼve got a lotta work to do 

Weʼve got a lotta work to do Weʼve got a lotta work to do  My sister, when will we pull through My brothers, will we make it through? Weʼve got a lotta work to do My mother, when will we pull through 

My father, will we make it through? Weʼve got a lotta work to do

Possibility

Softest lips in all creation The sweetest lips Iʼve ever tasted Speaking words so soft and sacred Youʼve got what it takes to make it 

My love, you got it all My love, you got it all 

Early morning, lying naked I wake to fingers tracing Girl, you’re teaching me some patience Youʼve got what it takes to make it 

My love, you got it all My love, you got it all My love, you got it all My love, you got all I need I give you all of me Cause you got all I need I give you all of me 

Are we too young to see? The possibility What could truly be? The possibility A future with me A future with me A future with me

Today

You look tired of this sleepy town Like a broken toy in the lost and found Likeas xophoneathat wonʼt makeasound You seem to beat odds with the world You seem to be confused if you can even move With those cement shoes and mid-summer blues It donʼt matter if you win or lose I got one question for you 

Why donʼt you go? Leave this town and never look back, cʼmon Be who you wanna be and get gone, just go You got nothing to lose and everything to gain, cʼmon Be who you wanna be and get gone today Be who you wanna be and get gone today 

You got dreams in your head way bigger than yourself You got thoughts on your mind just sitting on the shelve You sorta kinda remind me of myself Well, I got one question for you 

Why donʼt you go? Leave this town and never look back, cʼmon Be who you wanna be and get gone, just go You got nothing to lose and everything to gain, cʼmon Be who you wanna be and get gone today 

Be who you wanna be and get gone today Be who you wanna be and get gone today Be who you wanna be and get gone today 

Donʼt let them tell you that the stars are out of reach Donʼt let them r in on your p rade Donʼt let the fear of falling stop you From climbing right up the mountain 

Just go Leave this town and never look back, cʼmon Be who you wanna be and get gone, just go 

You got nothing to lose and everything to gain, cʼmon Be who you wanna be and get gone today 

Be who you wanna be and get gone today Be who you wanna be and get gone today Oh, be who you wanna be and get gone today Be who you wanna be and get gone today 

Today, Today Today, Today Today, Today Be who you wanna be and get gone today

Questions

Looking across this balcony on this beautiful evening With all of our friends falling all over one another The world is starting to move in an uncontrollable manner Iʼm getting a little bit dizzy, Iʼve had a bit too much But how much is too much? 

Whoʼs to say that I’m guaranteed tomorrow anyway? Whoʼs to say who I Am And who Iʼm gonna be? Who really even knows if there’s a reason for everything? I donʼt have the answers, but Iʼm tired of skiing 

Oh she looks so pretty with her long hair falling down To accompany her smile, her eyes cut like diamonds straight into my soul Is this what Iʼve been looking for? Is this the light at the end Of this long tunnel of darkness that I know will be the death of me? 

Whoʼs to say that I’m guaranteed tomorrow anyway? Whoʼs to say who I am and who Iʼm gonna be? Who really even knows if thereʼs a reason for everything? I donʼt have the answers, but Iʼm tired of asking questions 

Whoʼs to say that I’m guaranteed tomorrow anyway? Whoʼs to say who I am and who Iʼm gonna be? Who really even knows if thereʼs a reason for everything? I donʼt have the answers, but Iʼm tired of asking questions
