  how dare you
who's to say i shouldn't feel the way i do?
i stand accused before all that i hold true
light me up and watch me burn, knock me down and i'll return
there's only so much i can take till i break
how dare you blame me for all that you do
and take away that piece of me i promised would always be true?
do you remember kicking cans and skipping stones
when it was me who'd never leave you alone?
tear me down to build you up, my skin's as thin as paper cups
there's only so much i can take till i break
how dare you blame me for all that you do
and take away that piece of me i promised would always be true?
cast your fears aside and all the tears you hide
and build your castle made of lies and still deny
how dare you blame me for all that you do
and take away that piece of me i promised would always be true?

blinded by the lies
liars hide their eyes disguised as seekers of the truth
stand atop the shoulders of whomever fits the suit
gimme shelter, gimme peace, gimme time to rest
guarded by the demons you hold too close to your vest
the scenes of all my tragedies release me from my need
your eyes have seen me bleed yet still my heart still seems to beat
i can't see. i'm blinded by the lies
i can't breathe. i'm drowning deep inside
i can't see
i can take you places no one else has ever been
paralyzed by fear and doubt but dripping wet with sin
watch and learn and crash and burn, i'm coming back for more
scribbled on the sidewalk by the wolves outside your door
wash your mouth with soap and oil till words add up to none
history was written by the ghosts of those who won
i can't see. i'm blinded by the lies
i can't breathe. i'm drowning deep inside
i can't see. i'm blinded by the lies
i can't breathe
and still she sings just like an angel when i sleep
and still she sings just like an angel when i dream
and still she whispers simple lullabies to me
and still she comes just like an angel so serene
and now i'm falling for an angel with no wings
and now i'm falling for an angel in my dreams
and now i'm falling for an angel as she screams
and now i'm falling

in search of tomorrow
the sunlight burns the blacktop
on desert highways and byways
the wind whips across my back
and i'm back out on my own
on my way home
beads of desperation cool me down
on desert highways and byways
and my anticipation leaps and bounds
with every town along the road
on my way home
fields of wheat and summer skies
rest-stops full of hungry eyes
in search of their tomorrow
whispers into the summer breeze
offer me no sympathies
for have i shed my skin enough
to bury all that i've been told
on my way home?
dead-man curves hide dotted lines
breakdowns marred by passing time
in search of their tomorrow
the sunlight burns the blacktop
on desert highways and byways
and love leads my heart and guides my eyes
on my way home

still we fall in love
alone as you left me still
at home, i've got no strength of will
to carry on, to lift me up when down
i can't move on and i cannot rebound over you
a wish of whispers in the spring
an empty kiss that never meant a thing
i'd turn away but i could not erase the day
you went away, oh please, alleviate my pain
hearts are careless, eyes are blind
they know no boundaries, cross all lines
but still we fall in love
asleep on a cold hard floor
please let me dream for just an hour more
a warmer sun like i've never seen before
can right the wrongs but can't lead you back thru my door
hearts are careless, eyes are blind
they know no boundaries, cross all lines
but still we fall in love (over you, over you)

we were young
in painted pictures of the days gone by
our hearts held captive to forgotten time
we swam our summers into moonlit drives
and broke our silence with our mercy crimes
i kissed your belly and i tongued your cheek
we wished our prayers upon the falling leaves
glimmer and awe, you're everything i need
was i too blind to see the forest from the trees?
shame my past and change my ways
nothing lasts but cursed names
i leave it all behind
am i too far from what i'd hoped to find?
but we were young
crimson sin, let's erase the day
the clouds laughed and rained on your parade
we hem and haw and lovers pass on the street
in fading glance but the wind won't speak
changed my past and shamed my ways
cursed past and change my name
i leave it all behind
am i too far from what i'd hoped to find?
but we were young
shame my past and change my ways
nothing lasts but cursed names
i leave it all behind
have i gone too far this time?
but we were young

only love
faith's the pathway to the unknown
and lights the candle to guide me home
long the journey of moonlit streets
of heavy heartache and weary feet
dream of heaven, a brand new start
echoes in my heavy heart
long the journey of restless sleep
shall be rewarded by your kisses sweet
only love can wash the pain away
only love can light the dawn of a brand new day
lipstick stains on brown coffee mugs
tender kisses and endless hugs
winter whispers of summer skies
as spring embraces your autumn eyes
only love can cast your fears aside
only love can wipe the tears from your eyes
only love is what's worth fighting for
only love is what's worth dying for
only love keeps you coming back for more
only love is what we're all here for
only love

let it rain
and if i told you that money grows on trees
could you believe that you have everything you need?
so let the sky fall and let the clouds come rolling in
and let it rain, let it rain
and if i told you that summer lasts all year
would you believe that you need never shed a tear?
like monkey see, monkey do, i'll do for you this much is true
so let it rain, let it rain
let the rain drops fill everything inside
and let the rain cleanse everything you try to hide
and if i told you that love comes from above
could we dream in between on the wings of a dove?
the truth ain't out there, the truth is nestled in your soul
so let it rain, let it rain
let the rain drops fill everything inside
and let the rain cleanse everything you try to hide
let it rain, let it rain

as far as eyes can see
many were the lives of me
that peered into her eyes to see
that flowers wilt and seasons change
and mirrors crack to spite the vain
of summer skin and diamond rings
she never meant to hurt a thing
an angel who has lost her wings
shall intervene and set me free
as far as eyes can see
blow a kiss and make a wish
but offer nothing more than this
empty wells and silent prayers
have been replaced by teenage tears
all who know don't comprehend
in letters never meant to send
clarity has come to me
finally i shall be free
as far as eyes can see
love your life and love your home
love to know that you belong
sleep outside in the pouring rain
let winter wash away the pain
of past mistakes and carnal sins
and question not what could have been
i'm not the man i used to be
love has come to set me free
as far as eyes can see

everything & nothing at all
a choir starts to sing as the morning church bells ring
and all she is is everything that i could hope to be
she waits for me in between a breath and a sigh
and whispers me the dreams of everyone that passes by
as she breaks the dawns embrace
the sun shines thru my window
and showers me with kisses oh so sweet
she promised me the stars would never fall
she's everything & nothing at all
she'll be born again with every tear of mine that drops
yet still i pretend to be everything i'm not
she's the muse of every song that's ever made me cry
she's the hidden treasure that the world may never find
as she stirs my soul awake
the sun beats on my shoulders
as lovers build their castles made of sand
tenderly she touches me
let passion light the way
love was meant to live, not understand
she promised me the stars would never fall
she's everything & nothing at all

please
erase the day and what i said
roll over we all play dead
and run back to our broken homes instead
winters will and time stands still
with pockets full but unfulfilled
we venture out into the cold alone
can i please borrow destiny
with tomorrow to guide me
thru sorrow i can't breathe?
lonely hearts been laid to rest
empty promise, empty threats
cry out to an audience of one
rescue me from all i need
damned for all eternity
for everything i've never said and done
can i please borrow destiny
with tomorrow to guide me
thru sorrow i can't breathe?
please help me understand
the blood that stained my hands
a broken-hearted man
i still stand

in fairytales
i drag the world's attachments at my feet
and wander thru the morning's empty streets
lamenting the scent of blades of grass
but pause enough to watch memories pass
where winters melt away to summer blue
in fairytales i still remember you
i drag my heavy feet on broken glass
to weave my way along forgotten paths
i stand atop the mountains in the rain
and toast the youth of all who broke their chains
where winters melt away to summer blue
in fairytales i still remember you
i sing the sun and embrace it's delight
and with my outstretched arms, succumb to flight
i'd commune with the eagles as they soar
and look back never once nor evermore

the seagull
i pull you close just to hold you tight
silence speaks to us under this streetlight
for here i stand while you look there
i will walk without despair
a burden bared alone, i stand a fool
suffer me as i suffer you
i cannot speak so you cannot see
just what you mean to me
you're free of heart in a seagull's disguise
you wash away the rain
your body redefines an hour glass
as my dotted lines connect a broken past
an innocent child who has grown
to deny feelings he was never shown
in summer blue, i'd stay the night
on foggy eves, you're my ray of light
i could swim the oceans, climb the tallest trees
and i could dream in spite of me
you're free of heart in a seagull's disguise
you wash away the rain
if just for one day you could see it my way
see the world thru my eyes, taste salt from tears i've cried
cut myself till i bleed, i never wanted to need
it was never easy to be me
could you have faith in what might never be
and trust in me based on a memory?
to release a love like we have never seen?
you're free of heart in a seagull's disguise
you wash away the rain
if just for one day you could see it my way
see the world thru my eyes, taste salt from tears i've cried
cut myself till i bleed, i never wanted to need
it was never easy to be me
if just for one day you could see it my way
see the wolrd thru my eyes, on seagulls' wings i fly
kiss the wound where i bleed & teach me how to believe
all i want to be is true to me
