For Someone Else

 

She was like the setting sun

Her warmth, was, the, only one

 

She took, me, up, so high

Her heart, was, never, justified 

 

So she blew, my house, right down

Where she lay her head right round

 

And I can't, get, her, out of my head

Should I load this gun full of lead?

Cuz I'm crying over the same damn thang

And that diamond ring wouldn't have changed a thing 

 

So babe, I'm insane

 

Oh I can't, be, the one, the one you want

Oh I can't, be, the one, what I'm not

 

Oh I can't, be, the one, the one you want

Oh I can't, be, the one, what I'm not

 

So I go, hold, on, to something else

Like paper mache on my shelf

I can shape what I want in life

But sometimes you can't get it right

 

Don't blame it all on yourself

There's someone out there, someone else

 

You can make it through, let me help

So I sing this song for someone else

 

Oh I can't, be, the one, the one you want

Oh I can't, be, the one, what I'm not

 

Oh I can't, be, the one, the one you want

Oh I can't, be, the one, what I'm not

 

Oh I can't, be, the one, the one you want

Oh I can't, be, the one, what I'm not

 

Summer Sands

 

We all wanna go away

Into a Summer's day

Sweeping the dust away

I guess I wanna say

 

Sinking sands are okay

It must be half past May

Time is it, almost noon?

How did I find my room?

 

I think I want some time to waste

Think I want it, what I chased

Lately I got it, how about we

Get right on it, follow me

 

Chase it down and we will score

A glass or two or maybe more

This is what is meant to be

Tonight is ours just you and me and 

 

Aye yo, let's go, aye yo, let's go

Aye yo, let's go, we can do it all night you know

 

Aye yo, let's go, aye yo, let's go

Aye yo, let's go, don't it feel right you know

 

Aye yo, let's go, aye yo, let's go

Aye yo, let's go, we can do it all night you know

 

Aye yo, let's go, aye yo, let's go

Aye yo, let's go, don't it feel right you know

 

Left another place to be

Not the same, I did see

 

Thought if I made up my mind

I'd make it back in time

 

But I don't think I like it

What I chased, lately I got

 

Like the moon, I know I found it

Time to waste, I know I want it

 

What I faced, lately I got 

How about we, get right on it

 

Follow me, you will see, 

Chase it down and we'll be free

 

Let's just have a toast or three

This is how it's supposed to be

 

Glass half full it's not empty

Summer Sands we cheers to thee, yeah 

 

Aye yo, let's go, aye yo, let's go

Aye yo, let's go, we can do it all night you know

 

Aye yo, let's go, aye yo, let's go

Aye yo, let's go, don't it feel right you know

 

Aye yo, let's go, aye yo, let's go

Aye yo, let's go, we can do it all night you know

 

Aye yo, let's go, aye yo, let's go

Aye yo, let's go, don't it feel right you know

 

Aye yo, let's go, aye yo, let's go

Aye yo, let's go, we can do it all night you know

 

What Kinda Trouble

 

What kinda trouble are you into

Don't wanna take you to a place that ya been to

Cuz I know you've been in such a good mood

Babe I just want you to stay

 

Its half past twelve

And know you wanna go 

But if you stick with me

You don't have to be alone

We could have a ball

Cuz you're always on the roll

 

But you neva liked to be the one up in the show

 

We can run off to a place

With all the pretty lights

Just to see your face

Makes my heart ignite

I'm lifted by your wings

Can't you see how high

 

If I hear ya sing, 

Then I know you just might

 

Be my song, if I play it right

 

What kinda trouble are you into

Don't wanna take ya to a place that ya been to

Cuz I know you've been in such a good mood

Babe I just want you to stay

 

It don't mean we gotta go to my house

You're the only one I know who dreams aloud

The kinda flame that never dies out

 

And even though you don't need me

And I wished you could see me

 

You're the kinda trouble I'd be in to

 

Everyone's leaving

But you ask em to stay

You got them all believin in the same kinda way

When your hearts never deceivin

But you wished I would say

A different kinda song 

To take you away

 

I know what you'll be needin

Don't letcha mind say it

Just listening to our hearts

A beatin - I know you'd love to play it

 

Cuz ya can't sing a song ya neva sung before

 

What kinda trouble are you into

Don't wanna take you to a place that ya been to

Cuz I know you've been in such a good mood

Babe I just want you to stay

 

It don't mean we gotta go to my house

You're the only one I know who dreams aloud

The kinda flame that never dies out

 

What kinda trouble are you into

Don't wanna take ya to a place that ya been to

Cuz I know you've been in such a good mood

Babe I just want you to stay

 

What kinda trouble are you into

Don't wanna take you to a place that ya been to

Cuz I know you've been in such a good mood

Babe I just want you to stay

 

And even though you don't need me

And I wished you could see me

 

You're the kinda trouble I'd be into

 

Hercules

 

What I gotta prove to you

To make you see that I'd been true, yeah

 

What I gotta think or say

I tell myself I know it won't go my way, oh

 

I could never tell a lie

Without you I have no alibi 

So, what else can I do?

 

I could run all over

Throw a boulder on my shoulder

Call me Hercules, I'd be your Hercules

 

I won't run you over

But these rocks are growing colder

Than when I was on my knees

Begging ya darling please

Call me Hercules

 

Fell back on my past

Then I broke off the Pillar

Oh the First shall be Last

But I was fooled by the Dinner

 

I'll be a giant you can see

Way up on a mountain

There's nothing I can't be

When your love is like a fountain

 

What else can I do?


 

I could run all over

Throw a boulder on my shoulder

Call me Hercules, I'd be your Hercules

 

I won't run you over

But these rocks are growing colder

Than when I was on my knees

Begging ya darling please

Call me Hercules

 

When I hold up the world

But you're bringing me down

Just know it's by my Word

You haven't hit the ground

 

Every second glance

Could be a second chance

Your waters running down

But I can't stop the flood

 

What else can I do?

 

I could run all over

Throw a boulder on my shoulder

Call me Hercules, I'd be your Hercules

 

I won't run you over

But these rocks are growing colder

Than when I was on my knees

Begging ya darling please

 

I could run all over

Throw a boulder on my shoulder

Call me Hercules, I'd be your Hercules

 

I won't run you over

But these rocks are growing colder

Than when I was on my knees

Begging ya darling please

 

Bad Bones

 

All hail the dirty and pale

The big bad bones and the ones that I've failed

Oh no, where do I go 

When everyone keeps throwing at me bad bones

I'm shattering, clattering, falling to the ground

You keep hearing that same repetitive sound

 

And I'm, I'm, falling down

Because your big bad bones keep breaking me down

And I'm, I'm, falling down

Because your big bad bones keep breaking me down

And I, can't, take it no more

 

You're breaking me down like we're in a war

And I, can't, take it no more

Breaking me down, you can't make me sore

And I, can't, take it no more

Making me battle like we're in a war

 

So get your big bad bones out of here

I, ain't playing around no more 

 

Woah 

 

Where do I go

 

When everyone keeps throwing at me bad bones

I'm shattering, clattering, falling to the ground

You keep hearing that same repetitive sound

 

And I'm, I'm, falling down

Because your big bad bones keep breaking me down

And I'm, I'm, falling down

Because your big bad bones keep breaking me down

And I, can't, take it no more

 

You're breaking me down like we're in a war

And I, can't, take it no more

Breaking me down, you can't make me sore

And I, can't, take it no more

Making me battle like we're in a war

And i, can't, take it no more

Breaking me down like we're in a war

 

So get your big bad bones out of here

I, ain't playing around no more 

 

Kick Back

 

Oh the motion

Of her hair

Twirling in the wind

Oh the motion

Of her hair

Makes me think back then 

 

When it all came together

Just, like, the puzzle pieces

When it all came together

Touch so soft, like a feather 

 

And I, know

We can't go back there now

But, that's okay

And I, know

We can't go back there now

But, that's okay

 

So I, will think

About the touch of her hair

Yeah I will think, about the touch of her hair

 

When I kick back, and take another drink

You know I'm thinking of you

When I kick back, and take another drink

You know I'm thinking of you

When I kick back, and take another drink

You know I'm thinking of you

When I kick back, and take another drink

You know I'm thinking of you

 

Oh the ocean

Behind you there

Holding onto you

Oh the ocean

Through you there

Doesn't change the view

 

When it all came together

Just, like, the puzzle pieces

When it all came together

Touch so soft, like a feather 

 

And I, know

We can't go back there now

But, that's okay

And I, know

We can't go back there now

But, that's okay

 

So I, will think

About the touch of her hair

Yeah I will think, about the touch of her hair

 

When I kick back, and take another drink

You know I'm thinking of you

When I kick back, and take another drink

You know I'm thinking of you

When I kick back, and take another drink

You know I'm thinking of you

When I kick back, and take another drink

You know I'm thinking of you

 

When I kick back, and take another drink

You know I'm thinking of you

When I kick back, and take another drink

You know I'm thinking of you

 

Fallin

 

I fell to the

 

Ground as she wept in

I haven't slept in

A day or a thousand

Years that passed

 

They turn away from

The heart of a wall where

Inside you'll find the, secrets in a room

 

Maybe a memory, but I can not really

See through the glass, window like cement

 

That's when it hits me

It's nothing I'm missing

 

A tunnel opening

Toward the light

 

Inside there's darkness

A soldier who's heartless

 

I don't recall seeing you

 

I was free fallin, car she was stallin

Lost all control and I fell to the ground

 

It's where I glide through, a cloud like dust

Opening for the, shadows falling

 

Grounds where I wept, don't know who left

For the shadow fell, just like the curtains do

 

Makes me feel certain, I must chase a ghost

In a mirror, cept' nothing is clearer

 

Because this cement wall, it suddenly hits me

It's not what I'm missing any more

 

Then I wake up to 

Find the glass shattered

 

All that had mattered

Is strewn across

 

Cement with the glass

The tunnel I passed

 

To find the light telling

Me how it would end

 

And that's when it hits me 

 

I was free fallin, car she was stallin

Lost all control and I fell to the ground

 

To see the glass, look up to window

A seat I'm looking, a garden of remembrance

 

I was free fallin, car she was stallin

Lost all control and I fell to the ground

 

To see the glass, look up to window

A seat I'm looking, a garden of remembrance

 

5th Ave

 

Waking up

To the sound of your love

I'm calling, I'm calling

So caught up

It's like you're some kind of drug

I'm stalling, I'm stalling

 

No more cliches

About the way that we behave

No more hearts to break

Cuz I'm not running

Around

 

You were there best

Mistake, that happened 

For a reason

Now it's time make

My feet move off 

The ground

 

I'm losing my mind

To find what is right

 

I once was so blind

When I was living for the night

 

I think I found the road

That leads me back to you

When every other sign

Read Drive-Thru

You were my 5th Ave

 

I once made up all my fears

Now I'm crying all my tears away

 

The road is long 

But I've been called to take it

 

The past held on but

I'm strong enough to break it

 

No more cliches

About the way that we behave

No more hearts to break

Cuz I'm not running

Around

 

You were there best

Mistake, that happened 

For a reason

Now it's time make

My feet move off 

The ground

 

I'm losing my mind

To find what is right

 

I once was so blind

When I was living for the night

 

I think I found the road

That leads me back to you

When every other sign

Read Drive-Thru

You were my 5th Ave

 

You were my 5th Ave

 

You were my 5th Ave

 

Break of Dawn

 

Nothing's set in stone until

I'm six feet under

 

There's no T in I

But if I were Me

I'd have more Time

 

To reach higher elevation 

Without all my procrastination

I can make my own creation

For people across the nation 

We need to know that

 

This is it, our time is now

Wake on up, and take your bow

You think you're gone 

And don't know how

 

To carry on

 

You gotta fight until the break of dawn

 

To level up I need more floors

I'll break the roof off

Or smash the doors

 

It's a duty I don't intend to misuse

And you can't defend what you refuse 

 

How can I make it any clearer

Break through the mirror of your fear

 

This life ain't chore

 

To reach higher elevation 

Without all our procrastination

We can make our own creation

For people across the nation 

 

We need to know that

 

This is it, our time is now

Wake on up, and take your bow

You think you're gone 

And don't know how

 

To carry on

 

You gotta fight until the break of dawn

 

This is it, our time is now

Wake on up, and take your bow

You think you're gone 

And don't know how

 

To carry on

 

You gotta fight until the break of dawn

 

Directions

 

Laying in the grass as time seems to fly

Tingling skin, reminds me why

 

And gravity tries to capture me

Darkened souls want to set us free

 

It'll try oh they'll try but I won't die

It'll try oh they'll try but I won't die

 

There's so many directions in this life 

We can aim, better than turning around 

And heading straight back to the pain

 

Head over heels, over mountains that we pass

Just remember all the good times 

That just seem to never last

 

I'm just imagining the faces

Catching myself before they chase us

 

Lying atop the end of a hill

The sun the stars the moon a pill 

 

I'm sobering a thought in my drunk mind

The lessons that I'll never find

 

And oh, woah oh, oh woah

 

It'll try oh they'll try but I won't die

 

It'll try oh they'll try but we won't die

 

There's so many directions in this life 

We can aim, better than turning around 

And heading straight back to the pain

 

Head over heels, over mountains that we pass

Just remember all the good times 

That just seem to never last

 

There's so many directions in this life 

We can aim, better than turning around 

And heading straight back to the pain

 

Head over heels, over mountains that we pass

Just remember all the good times 

That just seem to never last

 

Just remember all the good times 

That just seem to never last
