trash my heart :: LYRICS

SUMMER BIRDS

Baby Baby we fell in love in the spring time Summer sun was up above, we were in heaven  What a wonderful season, every day spent with you  When the summer sun it faded away  So did your love for me, I begged you to stay  Though I knew you never would I could see in your eye- you were gone for good  Now all I want is Summer birds once again at my window  Summer birds, helping my heart sing Summer birds, helping me come around  Summer birds help me come around   In the summer I could get over you  I’d start to laugh again and find someone new  But since its winter now I’m alone and aloof  And I just don’t know what to do  The sky now, so ugly and grey, I can’t imagine better days I know that this winter will pass, I just hope I’ll last

THE OTHER KIND

I think there should be a basic level of trust  And kindness in conversations between us I won’t call this love, and we’re not friends I think we’re sick and we both need some kinda medicine Where did he go, the man who made me feel alive?  Did he get lost? Is he hurt? Did he die?  You know, what you say to me are things I’d never say At least I wouldn’t say then that way  I guess love is wild, some times its blind Your love can make me run like hell all night and still get left behind Me and my restless heart, we hit the wall, we saw the sign Whatever kind of love I’ve tried, now I’m lookin’ for the other kind O darling, when you were shining like the sun I thought we could beat the world and make fools out of everyone The joke’s on us now, but we’re not laughing It got so dark out, when did that happen? Where did he go, the man who made me feel so free? When did your touch become more curse than cure to me? Now I know which is the greater sin To live with the disease or lose the limb

LAST NIGHT

Last night you said you had some news, somehow I already knew  Whatever you had to say would end up in goodbye  So when you came over and said you where going  I tried so hard to fake that smile  Because I hadn’t seen you that happy in quite a while   Now it wasn’t the first time, we’d whispered away the night  You’d go on all about some far off distant place You’d get that look in your eye, and smile and sigh   And say some day you’d take that ride   But I never believed you’d go until last night Cause I could see it in your eye you were already leaving  I could hear it in your voice you were already gone  That was the moment when last night became this morning  That was the moment I knew I was gonna be all alone Last night under the moon, you told me you’d be leaving soon  You couldn’t wait to pull up all your roots So I took your hand and listened to your plans there was nothing else to do I was losing you, losing you

Trash My Heart

You trash my heart, you’re some kind of artist  When I’m trying hardest, that’s just when you disappear  O O O Boy, do you know what you do?  Do you know I remember every word you say? I remember every plan we make?  And that time, we stayed up and talked all night, I felt like I could fly  I hoped you’d feel the same, but I haven’t heard from you in days  You trash my heart,  You do it so neatly, you do it so sweetly, it comes so naturally  You trash my heart,  You do it so cooly, and I feel so foolish for going through this again  Crazy boy, I’m fresh out of good ideas  But whenever I try to leave, you change my mind so easily  So if I’m not, the one that you want the most I’d love you to let me know  Cause I don’t want to feel this way and then not hear from you for days This is not the way that it should be, you swinging back and forth me  And it begins each time its over  You trash my heart, OH , You trash my heart, OH

BORN TO LOVE

Darkness, calling you and I both running through the night  Silver Lover, you’re so graceful in the moonlight I could die  O please, love me, I’ll love you just as well as I am able  But my love, was never enough  You drank the wine but left the whole feast at the table  This heart of mine was made for this  To enfold someone, to hold on to him  To pour my heart out over and over again  I was born to love someone, I was born to love somebody Even as my heart is being broken  I was born to love someone, I was born to love somebody  I was born to love someone  Weightless, falling, from your heights I plummeted straight to the ground  Half hearted Lover, you saw my brokenness, heard that awful crashing sound  Farewell Other, I loved you just as much as I was able You leave now, you flee now  You drank the wine but left the whole feast at the table To love must be why I exist I want more from love, I want more than this To pour my heart out over and over again I was born to love someone, I was born to love somebody Even though my heart has been so broken  I was born to love someone, I was born to love somebody Born to watch my heart get ripped right open I was born to love someone, I was born to love somebody


David :: lyrics

THE PROPHET

O, Jesse, why have you called me home  I know better than do leave the sheep alone  O Prophet, why do you look at me?  Why does the hand of the Lord feel so heavy?  I'm just a shepherd, I'm just an artist  never thought that I'd write songs of such consequence  God of my fathers, God of Israel  Do you know me well? Do you know me well? O the eyes of God don't see man's outward parts  He looks past his stature and sees his true heart  O the eyes of God don't see what man sees  I feel the eyes of God turn to rest on me  The hand of the Lord may it never leave my side  The hand of the Lord may it never leave these tribes  May the ear of the Lord always listen when I call  O Samuel, can you please explain it all?  I'm just a shepherd, least of my brothers Never thought I'd live a life of great consequence  O Mighty Father, God of Israel  Do you know me well? Do you know me well?  O the eyes of man only see what they can  a simple young shepherd with a harp in his hands  but the eyes of God don't see what man sees  and God must see something when he looks at me  I can feel the oil poured over my head  and I hope it wasn't meant for someone else instead  I can feel the oil running down my chest  and for the glory of the Lord I will try my best

THE GIANT

I saw him, he must have been 10ft tall at least  either way he's over twice the size of me  but with a mouth like that it doesn't' really matter how big the enemy  I'll have his head roll at my feet  Its true I'm just a young man and I've never been to war  but I've killed lions, I've killed bears  don't you see it is the Giant who dared defy the Lord  he is the one who should be scared  I'll take on any foe so that all the nations know  there's a God in Israel who's on my side  and soon all those crows will be peckin' at His bones  for the glory of the Lord on High This Philistine can't see  he believes he's fighting me  O Saul, take back your armor please  Almighty's all the shield I need  You can learn a lot of things out in the field while tending sheep  like not to be afraid of any living beast  this giant's got my brothers out here hiding, shaking in their sheets  this barking dog will not bite me  Its true I'm just a young man and I've never been to war  but I've killed lions I've killed bears  don't you see its not you Giant, who is anointed by the Lord  you are the one who should be scared  I come with sticks and stones, but I know I'm not alone  I got an army full of angels in the sky  and soon all those crows will be peckin' at your bones  for the glory of the Lord on High

THE PRINCE

I heard your voice through the field where I laid in wait  you said the arrow you shot landed far away  so the king is looking to take my life I'll have to leave you, brother, like I'll leave my wife  and we weep, we weep, we weep  I know my part in God's great plan  I don't know his plans for you, dear Jonathan  I wish we both could have gotten what we were promised  I swear I love you brother and your cheeks I'll kiss  Sometimes I can't understand the Almighty's ways  That I'll receive from Him what from you He takes  O, you met me in the field with the morning light  How many times do you think you can save my life?  your father's rage has made me a wanted man  so embrace me brother for as long as you can  And we weep, we weep, we weep  O no, the prophet said I'd cause you pain  O no, he said my name will replace your name  I wish we both could have been the anointed sons  I wish we both could have been the chosen ones  Sometimes I can't understand the Almighty's ways  But I must take the steps that He tells me to take  O, O, Jonathan, Jonathan  O, O, my best friend, Jonathan

THE WILDERNESS

I used to sing, I was summoned to drown out  the voices tormenting the King, and all the demons of his crown I've been covered in the blood of all my enemies  I've been drenched in their blood, and laid them down at my King's feet O Saul, have you forgotten it all?  you try to pin me with your spear to the wall  now I'm running in the wilderness, the wilderness  Now its been twice, I could have killed you in your sleep but I spared your life, yet you'd still rip me to pieces  I've been running now for years, a man without a country  I have no more tears, you've taken them all from me  O Saul have you forgotten it all?  remember how you loved me when you watched the giant fall?  Now I'm hiding in the wilderness, the wilderness  I was given a promise, when I got down on my knees  but its been so long since the prophet anointed my head my hands my feet  every year that goes by it gets harder to believe  now I'm poured out like water, my God why have you forsaken me?  O God have You forgotten it all?  the covenant that we made when I was so small  Now I'm living in the wilderness, the wilderness  How long will You leave me in the wilderness?  How long until You fulfill Your promise?

THE ARK

Out of the shadows of death, I'm finally standing in the sun  and every battle I've fought, I have won, Lord, You have won  and who am I? How could this be?  that Your ark would come to me and dwell with me here in my city?  O God I'm unworthy, amazed and afraid  O… You've brought me in from the cold  Israel, the people that God calls His own  Jerusalem, now your king and your God have a home  O my God, I see You ark as it comes down the road  Here it comes down the road  each sacrifice brings you closer  O my heart could explode I can't get enough, I can't get enough  O Michal, look down from your window and frown  O Michal, so proud you might despise me now  sometimes you're just like your father, you bitter wife and daughter  don't you see that the Lord God is pleased with me?  I praise God with my people, praise God as their equal  and O, I feel You so close  I see the ark of God as it comes down the road  I will sing and shout until my throat runs dry  fall on my face, with tears streaming out from my eyes  my lungs are burning, my legs they tremble from jumping so high my body is bare Lord, I'll be more brazenly undignified  O Lord, forever keep all Your promises to me Your promises to my family  that my house will always bring You glory

THE WOMAN

Run your fingers through your hair now, do you feel my eyes on you somehow?  to touch your arms, your waist, your neck, your legs  O I will beg, your King will beg  Who is she? Bring her to me  I had a love for the plan 'til I saw your skin  I had a love for the plan but didn't plan on this  Your husband's at war, won't even know that you're missing  and maybe God won't see us if you come in through the kitchen  I hear the Lord's warnings ringing in my head  but I'll drown them out, worship you instead  O, come now with me, come down with me  I did everything right 'til I touched your skin  So much I've sacrificed, maybe He'll let me have this  Now we fear the Prophet and the price we'll pay  the secret grows inside you heavier each day  I got innocent blood running down my hands  Had flocks of my own, slaughtered Uriah's lamb  Now we fear the Prophet the word he brings  the Lord says there must be a reckoning  Was after God's own heart 'til I claimed your skin O God, look at the state we're in  Was after God's own heart 'til I claimed your skin the child pays the price for his father's sin

THE SHEPHERD KING

A lion's jaw, a giant's sword, a Kings wrath, My Lord I played my part, I played my harp, You kept Your word  I'm a youngest son, a no one, outlaw, renegade  and I've clung to the promises You've made  the shepherd boy, the shepherd king  who loved the Lord and loved to sing//  the battlefield, the shattered shields, the enemies I've slain  are all I can offer up to the glory of Your name  I'm a soldier, sinner, mighty king, broken man though I've stumbled I know, my God, You understand  I was after Your, after Your, after Your heart  that was all that really mattered  I was after Your, after Your, after Your heart  You could hear it in my songs  I'm a father, adulterer, a faithful son, a wretched one  I wild man with blood on his hands  head of a warring house, oh somehow, Father God, please sort it out  Hear my prayer, be there, remember me, remember how  I was after Your, after Your, after Your heart  Even when the road was hard  I was after Your, after Your, after Your heart  You could hear it in my songs  I was after Your, after Your, after Your heart  O God, my God


The Young Adult :: Lyrics

OVER AND OVER AGAIN

he painted pictures, he had an eye to see things that weren't there  and the skills would use just can't be learned in schools so he cut out, but we don't see him anwhere  or his pictures anywhere  she does her best to get by, part time jobs on the side and she sings at the end of each day  and oh she adores it, but has nothing to show for it she tells herself  she's got the job, but the job don't pay , they say  I've got to find my way over and over again  I guess there's worse things in life, then putting the things you love on the side  and that's why I guess we try our best before we lay down and give up and die  I guess its always been this way and I'm not trying to complain  I just want to say to all of you who feel like you just don't know what to do  I understand that and in fact I feel that way too  I've got to find my way over and over again

YOUR GUESS

I'm spinning, about to spin right off the earth 23 years old still haven't figured out how anything works  not knowing anything can sure make you feel alone, alone  How can memories change so much over time and  How can the thing that you want most be the hardest to find and  how do people prepare for the end of their lives  well your guess is as good as mine, your guess is as Hold my hand, hold my hand and explain to me how can a dreamer not believe in what he dreams  and how can a lover not be loved reciprocatingly and be left alone, alone  how can a bird not have the passion to fly  how can a friend become a stranger overnight  and how do people prepare for the end of their lives  well your guess is as good as mine  your guess is as good as mine

DAYS GET IN THE WAY

Keep our dreams organized, like books on shelves - we stack up the ones we love, remind ourselves  Forget forget forget the things that just don't matter  Cherish cherish cherish the ones who love you better  I know, I know , I know, I know  No I don't, no I don't, no I don't, no I don't  We let our days get in the way -its necessary  me and my friends, we try our best even when we're weary  I've often thought if we knew the day we die we'd live more completely  because wasted time and wasted days can pass by so sweetly Scrape by scrape by scrape by for the weekend  Survive survive survive till the years end  I know I know that's not what we're meant for  But sometimes we're just to tired to try for more  sleep late but wake up early  I can't stand the way I talk -These crooked lines were drawn in chalk - This is my voice, this is mine

MADE ME GROW

OH, I gotta figure it all out again  My dad told me from the start a couple boys might break my heart  and my mom told me the ache with time would fade  and my dad said I was never meant to waste away when love came and went  and my mom consoled me when I panicked along the way  and all the seeds that they have sown, and all the seeds that they have sown  yes all the seeds that they have sown, they made me grow  Well I gave my heart out a few times but it never ended right and I tend to recover slow and painfully  I guess its possible that I had shined in someone else's eyes but I ignored him watchin' someone else while he watched me  So if I've broken any hearts, If I've broken any hearts, If I've broken any hearts, I didn't know  and love came and then love went - then love came and then love went  and when it came and when it went - it made me grow  It made me grow, made me grow  It made me grow, made me grow  Now I've been to many cities and I've seen a lot of beauty and I've made a lot of friends I'll never see again  but you shook me to the core you ran through me like a sword  I'm tryin' to say I love you and need you with me 'till the end  Of all the people I have met- of all the people I have met  and all the ones that I'll forget - you were the best  you made me grow, made me grow  you made me grow, made me grow

CLOSER TO MY HEART

Give me grace when I'm ungraceful give me grace , I need to be alone now, I just need my own space  I know I'm inconsistent, please come back right away  You said what are you looking for? what do you want? and I said nothing and everything  You said maybe I should go and then maybe you'll miss me and I said nothing and everything  you watch me walk away now - but you got a little closer to my heart  you watch me walk away now - but you got a little closer to my heart  oh, I want you closer than I'll let you come - oh, I want you closer than I'll let you come  You fill my mind like you fill my apartment when you stop by  like you fill up my kitchen, like you take up the couch, you take up all the space, but I like you in my place  I don't know how to say that I want you to stay, I want you to stay  I just don't know what to say, I've always been that way  you watch me walk away now - but you got a little closer to my heart  you watch me walk away now - but you got a little closer to my hear  oh, I want you closer thanI'll let you come - oh I want you closer than I'll let you come

ASHES ASHES

what was i supposed to learn, about how to be grown , what was i supposed to see  I was supposed to learn a long time ago  what a woman's supposed to look like, and what a man's supposed to be  ashes ashes we all fall down - like little children spread out across the ground  ashes ashes we all fall down - like little children spread out across the ground  work your hands to the bone, go to bed late and night , go to bed tired for reasons that are right  wake up in the morning, make the most of today , because tomorrow,  oh, tomorrow's a fickle lover who always keeps you guessing  ashes ashes we all fall down - like little children spread out across the ground  ashes ashes we all fall down - like little children spread out across the ground  I said it once, said it a thousand times, you'll be just fine ,you'll be just fine

WE GOT A LOT

to each his own, so that each can be lonely , not understanding, doesn't mean misunderstanding  you're most beautiful when the sounds you make mean nothing at all  we sink we float, we sink we float, we float  we got a lot in common, we are so different / we got a lot in common, we are so different  Let's get it right, at least one time in this life , Let's have it all, let all the love we've ever known  echo in our metal hearts , in our chests made of stone  beneath our wooden skin , under sand paper clothes  we got a lot in common, we are so different , we got a lot in common, we are so different

ITS EASY

Its hard to be grown up when you're young , Its hard to know when things end and when they've begun  its easy to make the same mistakes again and again , its easy to pretend things are like they were back then  I got a long list in my head , of things I wish I could forget  My soul is fine, my hearts okay , my mind is often far away  wandering the night alone , not ready yet to come back home  I guess the secrets we keep best , are the ones that we keep from ourselves  I thought I'd have it figured out by now / amazing grace how sweet the sound but getting older didn't make me any wiser somehow / that saved a wretch like me  I needed someone to pull me out / I once was lost but now I'm found  of this spiraling of fear and doubt, pull me out / was blind but now I see, I see  I've got a long list in my head , of things I need not to forget  this battered sail can catch wind yet , hope can move this ship full of regret  my soul is fine, my hearts okay , my mind is often far away  wandering the night alone , when its dark outside, there is light at home  its hard to stand when you've fallen down , its hard to get off of the ground its easy when out of no where someone lift's you from the mud  its easy when somebody pulls you up

DRINK ALONE

in the corner there's an old young man, he sits in his regular spot/ he's been coming to this bar for the last 2 years, he's been coming whether he wants to or not/ he stumbles on over night after night fro his dark apartment down the street/ and he drinks 'till he'll laugh about anything, and he drinks 'till he can't keep his feet/ he says "my mama always told me I'd grow up to be special, but I guess I grew up to get old/ and life's not at all what I had expected and I'm going it all alone/ where have all my good years went? I drank 'em all away/ now my body's to tired to try anymore 'cause my body feels twice my age/ but this whiskey feels nice, the next one'll feel better/ tomorrow will be the same as today/ but tonight, it'll keep all the demons at bay// To his left there's a man who is wearing a tie and he's never been here before/ he's got his head in his hands and his phone is turned off and his jacket and briefcase on the floor/ he says, "I don't really like the taste of alcohol but please give me something good and strong/ all of my life I've tried to do everything right but somehow its all gone so wrong/ money isn't everything, well, that's what they say, but it sure means a hell of a lot/ we were barely hanging on to our house and our car and now I just lost my job/ and I don't see a way to dig us out of this hole and the weight on my shoulders is crushing my soul/ how has this become my life? and how do I go home and face my wife?/ I think I'll need a lot to drink tonight// oooooooooooooooo// Near the end there's a man holding something in the light/ its a picture of a woman, she's got breathtaking eyes/ the picture's been folded the edges are torn, but it seems she's never seen so much beauty before/ so he folds her up gently and puts her back in its wallet, then he kisses the leather and puts it in his back pocket/ he says, "I just need one more small drink to be brave, all this waiting is more than my broke heart can take/ my baby she left me and I've been wasting away, but I can't say I blame her 'cause I ain't no saint/ but I love her more than anything else in this world, and I gotta go win back my beautiful girl/ how the hell did I loose her now when i had her in my arms?/ and I gotta find the right thing to say somehow 'cause she won't fall for any of my charms/ she said she'd meet me tonight at a quarter past 8/ this is my chance, so just one more drink of else I might be late// ooooooooooooooooo// and they all drink alone, and we all hope they can make it home

THE KEY

sometimes the path lights up in the dark we learn where we are/every once in a while we spend our time well/ we arrive at our destination and get confirmation/ that we did what we needed to do and we did it well its the key that unlocks every door/ its the answer that shakes you to the core/ knowing what you're fighting for/ could anybody ask for more?  there's always voices in your ears voices in your ears but then one rings clear/ and you know what you're supposed to do and you know the truth/ O heaven knows what heaven knows but you know it too/ Heaven knows what heaven knows what its the key that unlocks every door/ its the answer that shakes you to the core/ knowing what you're fighting for/ could anybody ask for more? sometimes you're not supposed to let go you're supposed to grab hold/ some times you're not supposed to let go you're supposed to grab hold

OVER AND OVER

sound from my lips, it echoes back, bounces back in, needles and pins// sounds different, I disagree, with who said that, sounded like me/ O I can't explain I can't explain it all I try my best/ O one million things these things I'm supposed to have but don't possess  I will try to find the right way to go/ i'll find my way, o  step and step into the right way to from here on/ I'll find my way, o  I will try to find the right way to go/ I'll find my way, o  I will try to find the right way to go/ I'll find my way, o  congratulations, to all of you who always know, what you're supposed to do/ and where to go, who' s gut to trust/ that must be nice, I'm envious/ O I can't explain I can't explain it all I try my best  One million things these things I'm supposed to have but don't possess


The Living Room :: Lyrics

BURN

Apparently mistakes make you learn things  At least I've always heard things along those lines  Every story is a cautionary tale, but I don't learn my lesson  When I see a ray of light I chase it  over mountains and through rivers because it shot through the grey  I never quite catch the beam it must be an illusion  or at least something other than it seemed  But if a ray of light pierces the dark again  no matter how my heart broke before I'll probably dive in  ask me what I've learned from being torn up underneath  Well I guess I learned I'd rather burn than freeze  I guess I'd rather burn than freeze  I realized on a day in December  it was noon, as warm as it gets on a cold day  I had to stop, I was shivering the cold triumphant over my body  then I knew I would never want to live like this  observing through a layer of ice  numb from my fingers to the inside  too cold to ever take flight2  Because it doesn't matter how hard you laugh all day  if you still cry at night  You'd think that laughter would be better but its not if its laughter of fright  ask me what I've learned from falling shaking to my knees  Well I guess I learned I'd rather burn than freeze  I guess I'd rather burn than freeze  When I fall I fall to pieces I don't know how I'd be right again  I hope some time someone will catch me and set me right and bring me in  sometimes I just can't sleep even when I hold my eyes shut tight  I need a sunrise from this long and fearful night  but i guess if I can't get what I need  then I guess I'd rather burn than freeze I guess I'd rather burn, burn  I'd rather burn than freeze

WATCH HOW WE GROW

We are souls stuck in bodies, souls stuck inside of our bones  we struggle and claw our way to the top  to forget that these bodies don't last that long  Try and figure it out, take and honest account  catalouge memories and dreams, hope to God that they mean  somehting more than the little they seem they seem  ooooooo watch how we grow  ooooooo the reaping will show  I had a dream I pictured a river, it carried me away  until I was scattered on the shoreline  the fragments were unrecognizable  now if life is like a river  I pray I'd be more than this  we're all broken on the beaches  and can't help but keep sowing and sowing our seeds oooooooo watch how we grow  oooooooo is that all we have to show  oh God, make us more than the sums of our parts  make us more or I don't think I'll make it at all

THE GOOD ONES

I was following you, only you knew the way  We were on an unmarked trail through the woods to a secret place  and that spot was beautiful, though I tripped and fell  I've had a lot of good spills in my life, but that really was a great one  So you lifted me up and carried me back  and you handled me with care all the while making me laugh  and I soaked up from you, the warmth I get from the sun  I've known many good men in my life but I think you were a great one  I was putting you on like most comfortable clothes  We had comfortable moves, comfortable silence the kind of comfort that shows  and I never got tired of hearing your jokes  I've had lots of good laughs in my life, but we really had some great ones  and then your face was blue in the light of the TV  I had one hand on your heart and you whispered that you loved me  and though it all ended before it had begun  I've had many god cries in my life, but that night it was a great one  I was standing on stage, the lights hot on my face  and through the darkness of the room I somehow spotted your shape  That night singing was an ecstasy not an escape  I've sang really loud in my life but that night I really gave it all  and I sang all my songs, every note was for you  you really heard what I wrote and every single note was for you  Though I've done lots of losing, I finally felt like I've won  I've had many good nights in my life but I think that was a great one  oooo- when its all done  there's been a whole lot of good in my life and in the middle there's the great ones

WHAT HE SEES

Made another mistake, gave my heart away  and now it hurts just like it used to  haven't I grown up at all, haven't I learned anything  I don't know what he sees but it is not me I don't know what he sees but it is not me  I'm holding my place,  there's no where to go from here but there's no escape  and somehow we're both surprised  is he blind or am I? is he blind or am I, am I?  I don't know what he sees but it is not me  I don't know what he sees but it is not me  this ache is like the roar of the train outside my window  it drowns me out and I can't think of anything else to write about  because I don't know what he sees but it is not me  I don't know what he sees but it is not me

SPENDING AND SAVING

What can give us strength and what can take it away What can keep us content at the end of the long day Sometime I wish that I had something more concrete I wanna drive to your town, I wanna drive to your town I wanna make my parents proud, I wanna see my life spelled out in measures and amounts There's an ocean of reasons not to try, because spend all my parents' money while I spend all my time holding out and standing in line But I'll build a boat with this song, and I will float a long, I'll float along Maybe we should have a parade So I can admit I'm feeling weird about growing up and a little bit afraid Might need a part time job in some office to cover all my costs But it'll be better than it sounds while I'm on the ground There's an ocean of reasons not to try, because I'm spending all money while I spend all my time trying to do something and prove something thats right by me So I'll build a plane with this song, and I'll soar on and on and on and on Well, since we can't know what will happen We can only hope, and we can only pray for what we hope will happen I'll work with what I know and I know I love to sing for you and I'm doing the best that I can do and when I get too old and tired of this life, I'll have saved up a little money but I still spent all my time counting my blessings as all that is mine Until then I'll build a house with this song, it'll be tall and strong, it'll be tall and strong and I'll have my friends sing a long, they'll sing along, they'll sing along

WITH MY HEART, IN MY HANDS

I know that I can be really hard to read but I'm trying hard to change that because of what you are to me people our age, they can tend to play games but I want to tell you I love you unashamedly  I would write 1000 songs for you cause when you're gone I long for you  and if I got drunk I'd get your name as a tattoo  with my heart in my hands  Hell or high water I'd keep you afloat and when the winter winds are blowing I'll give you my heavy coat  there's no playing hard to get with me, don't need to chase what you already own  and there's no need to call and ask where I am I'll be at home  I would run, run miles for you and if you're too far I'll drive to you  and if it gets dangerous I'll survive for you  with my heart in my hands

IF I DIE BEFORE I WAKE

have you seen the sky today forgot the blue could look that way  beauty passes by the same as pain, its there and gone and back again  I guess our wandering causes us to collide, we say hello then say goodbye  so if I die before I wake I pray the Lord my soul to take Temporary, temporary, very very temporary
