Fame

January 28, 2008

Fame

Work hard all your life. Gain a friend or two
’cause you know you might just need them
If your dreams are real.
Take time for yourself – find a special place
Or a time where they won’t find you,
Something they can’t steal.
Come in, have a chair. Man we love your sound
Yeah we love your hair. Come on boy,
Can you fill these shoes?
Step back, take a look. You could rule the world
With your style, your hooks. Come on boy,
You just can’t refuse.

(Chorus)
Oh yeah here it comes.
Take a little more than the people give you.
Oh yeah, livin’ like a game.
Oh no, there it goes.
Where is all the love that the people showed you?
Oh no where is all this fame?
I’ve seen the good times.
The limousines and cigars and fine wines
That only lead to the scars and hard times
That seem to come my way.
Payin’ dues is a hard life.
Give a little more to the people who have made you.
What you are today.
(Chorus)

Edge

January 28, 2008

Edge

Don’t feel lonely now, I’m right beside you,
Well I get closer, but you push me away,
I’ve been back for you, I don’t deny it
Something tells me that you want me to stay

Don’t you see what I’ve become?

I’ve been to the edge, don’t worry, don’t scare me,
Rising above, this fear,that I carry
Scream at the top of my lungs, till you see me here

Well I feel confident, when I rely on,
What brought faith and love, not blindside,
Don’t feel bad for me, Don’t deny my love,
If you want me to, ya know I’ll stay

Don’t you see what I’ve become?

I’ve been to the edge, don’t worry, don’t scare me,
Rising above, this fear,that I carry
Scream at the top of my lungs, till you see me here

Been to the edge, Been to the edge,
I feel alive

I feel so much for you, I don’t deny it,
But if you want me to, I’ll walk away,

I’ve been to the edge, don’t worry, don’t scare me,
Rising above, this fear,that I carry
Scream at the top of my lungs, till you see me here

Inside out

January 28, 2008

Inside out

I don’t believe all the things I hear
all this things I hold so dear
I would take for granted

I always thought that you’d be there
And now it somehow seems unfair
will ask you where to take it

And do you see the danger
it’s creeping of beside

Cause you turn me inside out
You’re breaking all this promises we made
maybe time will make it right

The picture taken yesterday
slowly starts to fade away
there’s got to be an answer

cause do you spearly afraid to see
what my life was meant to be
You take me so much higher

And do you see the danger
it’s creeping of behind

Cause you turn me inside out
You’re breaking all this promises we made
maybe time will make it right

Cause you turn me inside out
It’s taking all much breakdown-will to stay
maybe time will make it right

And do you feel the danger
it’s creeping of beside

Cause you turn me inside out
You’re breaking all this promises
you’re breaking all this promises

Cause you turn me inside out
You’re breaking all this promises we made
maybe time will make it right

Cause you turn me inside out
It’s taking all much breakdown-will to stay
maybe time will make it right

Rise

January 28, 2008

Rise

Watching while you’re slowly sinking.
It’s too hard to say good bye
As you hold your anger deep inside
It breaks away the ties.
There’s a love that you are missing.
Can you rise above it?
Keep your head up?
Take it all in stride?
While inside you slowly die.

Waiting silently I’m watching
Ever deeper as you slide.
As you light your candle late at night
And watch it burn away.
Come the morning you’ll be sleeping.

Can you rise above it?
Keep your head up?
Take it all in stride?
While inside you slowly die.
When you’re miles above it
Looking down at this thing that you call life
Just be sure you get it right.

Best of me

January 28, 2008

Best of me

Hey my friend,
It’s good to see you back
Up on your feet again.
Time won’t mend.
The shame will show
No matter how you hold it in.

(Chorus)
With your sights on high
And your hands untied,
It has set you free
To believe in me.
On a higher plane
Where there is no pain.
Tell me what you see,
Cause you’re bringing out the best of me.

Hey, my friend,
I’m glad that you’ve been placed into my life again.
Time is right
To walk among these shadows and
to shed your light

(Chorus)

Always knew you?ld find yourself in time
Wasn?t hard to see

(Chorus)

Part of me

January 28, 2008

Part of me

Wicked seeds of desperation
Who?d ever dream that this memory would come back
Evil deeds that breed temptation
I close my eyes but I cannot relax

I can?t assume to know his reasons
I can?t attempt to put a name upon his face
Empty eyes I see the demon
If I could I would leave this place

Part of me doesn?t even care
Part of me wasn?t even there

Another wave to crash around me
A pulling current that could bring me to my knees
Where was I during the beating
Separation of body mind and ?

Part of me doesn?t even care
Part of me wasn?t even there

I can still see his face
The lines upon his face
And if could erase the hate
That breeds this nightmare
And how was I to know
A child of twelve years old
A hollow seed
But I can be
Whatever I?
Want to be.

Part of me doesn?t even care
Part of me wasn?t even there

Strange

January 28, 2008

Strange

A simple life is what you need
But you just see things different
You?re turning whispers into screams
It?s crazier ?everyday

And things have never been the same
Since that awkward moment
I ask you why you have to take
The muddy road ?everyday

I can see it clearly now
Love is never easy

(chorus)
Where is this light you hope I?ll find
We?re hopelessly locked up inside
There?s no way out no way to win
You say I?m indifferent?I just think you?re
Strange

You line you?re dreams up the a shelf
You just sit and watch them
You wish I was somebody else
Off your feet?swept away

But change is never welcome here
And it makes me wonder
How circumstances turn to fear
Another place?another day

Can you see it clearly now
We?re running out of reasons

(chorus)

Where was I when all this changed
Too bad there?s nothing left to say
You think I?m indifferent
I just think you?re strange

Double chorus
You tell me I?m indifferent
I just think you?re strange

The letter

January 28, 2008

The letter

Seventeen nights and fourteen days
I spent time in a hollow cave on the lower east side?the lower east side
A long way back to your front door I stepped inside
And on the floor was a letter?just a letter
With my hands all wet I slowly bent
Had this twisted feeling inside my head
I didn?t tell her?where I was going
I never quite remember why I do the things I do
When I?m sick and tired ?for myself
She?s the kind to sneak inside and twist your mind
You want to take a bite
but then you spit it out?I spit it out again
On a solitary chair she placed in the corner
If I gather up the strength and get a little bolder
Will I open up? I?ve got to open up ?this letter
Chorus
Free me. It?s not worth dying for. If I gave a little more would this be fine?
Tell me. What am I trying for?
You?ve already slammed the door and left me behind.

After counting all the words I felt your pain
But I had to sit down and read it again
To let it sink in. Did it sink in ?at all?
It?s hard to hold back this raging desire to light it all up
And sit by the fire and watch it burn?but now the tables turn
The only way back to the way it began
Is to take another look and try to understand
See it through your eyes?now I realize
Yeah?Yeah?Yeah?Yeah

(Chorus)

It?s been seventeen nights and fourteen days that I?ve been alone
So I thought I?d write you a letter
Just a letter

I’m learning

January 28, 2008

I’m learning

I pretend you sit in front of me.
I know this conversation well (well)
Back and forth between reality
And what I?ve come to believe is all I have

Words are just a form of emptiness
When there?s no one there to hear (me)
I see the bottom of this empty glass
It?s staring back and I can feel the pain

I see tomorrow in your eyes

I?m learning to cry
I?ll take it in stride
I?m learning to fly
I?m learning to hold my head up high

This fascination with what might have been
Always seems to leave me cold
I?ve gone so far and now I?m back again
The need to be (feel) alive is all I know

I see tomorrow in your eyes

I?m learning to cry
I?ll take it in stride (after all these years)
I?m learning to fly
I?m learning to hold my head up high

I Will hold up my hands
When I don?t think I can
There?s a peace right outside
In the light

I?m learning to cry
I?ll take it in stride (after all these years)
I?m learning to fly
I?m learning to hold my head up high

I?m learning to cry
Don?t keep it inside (learn to face my fears)
I?m learning to try
I?m learning to hold my head up high

I?m learning
I?m learning

Fade

The edge

January 28, 2008

The edge

Don’t feel lonely now, I’m right beside you.
I get closer but you push me away.
I’ve been bad for you, and don?t deny it
Something tells me that you want me to stay

Don’t you see what I’ve become?

(Chorus)
I’ve been to the edge
And you know it don’t scare me
Rising above this fear that I carry.
Scream at the top of my lungs
Until you see me here.

I feel confident, in what I rely on.
I walk by faith alone and not by sight.
Don’t feel bad for me , But don’t deny my love.
If you want me to, you know I’ll stay

Don’t you see what I’ve become?

(Chorus)

I’ve been to the edge
And I?m still alive

I feel so much for you, I don’t deny it
If you want me to, I’ll walk away

(Chorus)
