Someday

Don't think you'll get away.
No one ever has.
Don't think He'll turn His back.
It doesn't work like that.
You're caught just like me, but it's not really all that bad.
I think someday you'll understand, let's just hope that day comes fast.
I bet that you don't know just what it is you're running from.
Your eyes are so blank.
These kinds of things are never good.
You're caught just like me, but it's not really all that bad.
Someday, I think you'll understand, let's just hope that day comes fast.
You're running faster than I ever could.
I guess you're right, I guess I don't understand.
But what I know is you can run as fast and far as you want and it won't
make any difference in the end.

How Much I Don't Know

I want to show you how much, I don't really know you too much
and I can't skip by this misfortunate predictament
I can't get myself out of it, it's all too much
too late, yes I guess that it's so
huess I just wnated to know
but I can't shirk responsibility considering
it's all there is to being me
and I juset thought you should know
if you just keep opening doors
I promise that I'll keep testing the locks
hello, this is the end of the line
oh yeah, I'm doing just fine
no I won't pretend that I am open eyed, unsurprised or anything but
mystified, true and tried, I guess it takes this long to realize
just how much I don't know

Fall Down

Fall down.
Kiss the ground once again.
This mire too often my hearts desire.
Pick me up.
Dust me off once again.
This mire too often my hearts desire.
I create my own shame.
Put a muzzle on my mouth when I get so very anxious.
So very anxious again.
Better off if things were left unsaid.
Tomorrow's sorrows waiting there once again.
The silver pinholes of the night refuse to sing their starry song tonight.
Goodnight.
(We always go back, but not this time.)

Playground

All I know, all I have is what's been given to me.
What I know is real is all I can dream.
I feel my heart is changing.
The one and only thing I know is "we ain't going nowhere".
Be it sometimes I might, yeah, I put up a fight.
Gotta get this off my chest tonight.
All my thoughts are rearranging.
And what I really want to know is are we going nowhere?
All eyes peer, looking from the outside.
Tyou don't understand what you see in me.
I come renning out on your playground.
Sometimes things are the way they're meant to be.
You stare at me and ll these things are coming down.
I'm not sure and you're giving me the run around.
Could it be that you don't know me?
It's all in the way that you shun me.
(Sometimes things are the way the're meant to be out on your playground.)

It's Been So Very Long

I'm gonna leave this place, I swear this time I'm running home.
I know this place too well that promises I'll be alone.
Somewhere between here and there and back and forth I'll come around.
It's what I want to tell you...
It's been so very long since I've been man enough to be the kind of man...
if I'm gonna hold you hand.
I was reminded of the lack of who I am, I swallowed hard.
And in the night I took a firefly for a shooting star.
I watched the sun come up and burn away this feeling over me.
It'll be o.k., you'll see.

One Or The Other

I watched through star struck eyes as you fell down.
The words you spoke, I'd like to think they were sincere.
Now I've found my way back stage, I've filled my mouth with what's to taste.
And what I'm saying man is, yeah I see, I understand and I can't blame you.
I know you had to.
It was one or the other, it was you or your brother.
Should he change your mind; bring you around; clear the smoke, I really hope to see you there.
We'll reminisce when we're upstairs.
When it comes around who really cares?
What I'm saying man is, yeah I see, I understand and i can't balme you.
I know you had to.
It was one ot the other;
it was you or your brother.
(It was you.)

Landmarks

Are you here to stay?
Why should I ask?
The water's warm my friend.
This one should last.
Landmarks that define no longer align with the direction we're heading.
It's the consequence I fear when you label me like that.
I guess I wish you'd take some time with me.
The words I spoke were clear.
Some people only hear what they want to hear to make them feel alright.
Landmarks that define no longer align with the direction we're heading.
Landmarks that define no longer align with the song we're singing.

Let's Try Again Tomorrow

Please don't be angry with me.
I told you I was sorry.
We better kiss and make up.
Why do we fight so much?
There's got to be some better way to convince you to let me stay.
Remember when we used to fall down laughing?
I know I'm hung up.
I do repent and I promise I will never do it again.
Staged fight.
Goodnight.
Let's try again tomorrow.
Please don't be angry with me.
I tokd you I was sorry.
This always happens when I start to feel like I am something.
I'd like to think that we could find our way around this mess.
Remember when we used to fall down laughing.
Why can't we shut up?
It's gonna make us.
don't you want to give it another shot?
Staged fight.
Goodnight.
Let's try again tomorrow.

Compromise

Woke up to the headlights of a car, so I made a wish.
It didn't go real far.
Forgiveness is hard when you're heart's a mess and I gotta do something
to make myself feel better.
Like a bird from the sky, so I close my emes and ask God why.
In my selfishness I realize sometimes things don't go my way.
So, I've learned just how to compromise...
Should I cut my heart out so I can feel?
Let it subside to finally know what is real.
Maybe I'll take a trip down to the city, the lights look pretty.
There's something about the way I sit and stare that makes me feel
like a bird from the sky, so I close my eyes and ask God why.
In my selfishness I realize someimes things don't go my way.
So, I've learned just how to compromise...

Sterling

Can't find the time to clear my mind from all the stuff that's creeped inside.
Untie the knotts that clutter up the clarity of thought
Don't fight the things that you've been taught all you life.
It's not what it's worth. It's always getting worse.
The sun is out and I'm on the floor and one more step, I'm out the door.
I guess I should have stayed inside and given you the time.
Don't fight the things that you've been taught all your life.
It's not what it's worth. It's always getting worse.
