Sound waves, heartbeats Led me through dark streets Breaking bread with liars and thieves Second guessing what I believe If there’s one thing I know I’ve seen love emerge from a black hole If you listen you might hear it coming It’s never too late to stop running And face what you can’t bare to see Fear is only as real as you make it to be Sound waves and heart beats Got my brain fired up on a slow repeat So steady I can barely speak Times are tough but this life is sweet Sound waves, heartbeats Won’t you keep me company I can’t seem to find relief Everything feels outta reach Tell me where do you go When the day resigns to its final glow And you don’t want to be alone But there’s nowhere left to call your home Starring at a sea of stars Who would have thought we could get this far Sound waves and heart beats Got my brain fired up on a slow repeat So steady I can barely speak Times are tough but this life is sweet

Guarantees 02:57
Where you been hiding? Wish I could go back in time and never let you go I just can’t help it, you’re always on my mind And Im dying to know Would you hold me down If I’m living in my head Would you pull me back If I can’t comprehend Ohhhhhh what you see in me Maybe someday I’ll find I am all I need to be I might make believe You could set me free When the truth is always so plain to see There’s never any guarantees But I still aim to please Where are you going? If you could show me everything that’s on your mind wonder what I’d find Would I learn to read the signs if I’m falling out of line would you hold me close If I don’t feel right Would you wait it out Til we see the light Ohhhhhhhhhh, on the other side Maybe we can pass the time through a moonlit night I might make believe You could set me free When the truth is always so plain to see There’s never any guarantees But I still aim to please

Wake up It’s another new day And I got nothing to say When all I really want is a change Nothing ever seems to stay When I get stuck in my old ways Watching the time go by Chain smoking just to feel a little high Looking for a sign from the sky Making plans just to buy a little more of your sweet time Hey now, it’s another new day, and I got something to say, I’ve been bending over backwards for change The problems they just rearrange, at least I still have my old ways Watching the time go by Chain smoking just to feel a little high Looking for a sign from the sky Making plans just to buy a little more of your sweet time Wake up It’s another new day And I got nothing to say When all I really want is a change Nothing ever seems to stay When I get stuck in my old ways

Out of Reach 03:26
You don’t know me like you think you do The truth might break you down If only you knew I’m not as fragile as you might believe Got a whole lot of hope I made a pledge that I would keep Got a load of patience That I pray I’ll never need you sure know how to break me down At the speed of my heart beat When I’m left to my own devices Thank the ground beneath my feet Been a fool for desperation If I had a chance to speak I’d make an escape, but talk is cheap When words fall short of what you mean Sometimes you have to wait and see And let time heal what’s just out of reach I can’t love you like you need me to The truth is I tried but I know that’s nothing new I’m not the type to go and beg and plead But it’s clear as day by now I’m already on my knees You’re not as hopeless as you claim to be I pray you find everything you ever hoped and dreamed When I’m left to my own devices Thank the ground beneath my feet Been a fool for desperation If I had a chance to speak I’d make an escape, but talk is cheap When words fall short of what you mean Sometimes you have to wait and see And let time heal what’s just out of reach

Better 03:10
I was caught up feeling so content Around the moment I set myself up for another disappointment Not what I thought, but nothing seems to be Exactly what I want has a subtle way of escaping me I get sick of playing make believe When everything I want seems to fall right out of my reach Now I’m moving on to what I can’t quite see it’s got to be better than anything I think I might need It’s about to get better Like a shift in the weather I can feel it coming on Like a favorite song It’s bound to get better Winter never lasts forever You can feel the sunshine If you close your eyes It’s hard to see we’re all along for the ride I may never change the world, but I still have my will to survive As long as I’m here, might as well let it go So I can fall out of thinking my pride is always In control There’s nothing like the moment to bring me to my knees All I know, when I’m alone I hear the same old distant melodies Playing in my head like a siren telling me It’s got to get better than how it used to be It’s about to get better Like a shift in the weather I can feel it coming on Like a favorite song It’s bound to get better Winter never lasts forever You can feel the sunshine If you close your eyes

If only you Would tell me what to do Maybe then We could see this through Instead of being out here on my own So much I wish I could let you know Been so many years since I’ve felt at home So tired of sleeping all alone Now I’m looking in the rear view mirror Telling myself it’ll be ok Starring back at those vacant eyes I didn’t think that I could face Reminding me of the advice I never knew how to take Be true to yourself No matter how high the stakes Why should I Go and tell the truth I see the signs No convincing you Of something you already believe Let the powers that be go and set us free As we search for something that’s just out of reach Looking for answers we don’t see Now I’m looking in the rear view mirror Telling myself it’ll be ok Starring back at those vacant eyes I didn’t think that I could face Reminding me of the advice I never knew how to take Be true to yourself No matter how high the stakes Been a long road Been a long road Been a long road Just to get this far When there’s nowhere left to run I pace beneath the stars Now I’m looking in the rear view mirror Telling myself it’ll be ok Starring back at those vacant eyes I didn’t think that I could face Reminding me of the advice I never knew how to take Be true to yourself No matter how high the stakes

The Moment 03:52
Take away my expectations They won’t let up and I can’t rest Sick of constant calculations Swimming around inside of my head Nothing stings like desperation Keeps me hanging by a thread There’s a grace in resignation When it pulls me off of the ledge Nothing like the moment, To bring me to my knees Nothing like the moment To cure my disease Nothing like the moment To take what you can grab Nothing like the moment To love what I have Lead me out of this place I’ve been I’m in over my head and I can’t seem to swim Nothing feels right and I just can’t decide If I’m coming or going or tryin to hide From the truth I know way down in my soul got a thousand excuses that won’t let me go Pulling me down like the water that flows Straight from my veins to the great unknown Nothing like the moment, To bring me to my knees Nothing like the moment To cure my disease Nothing like the moment To take what you can grab Nothing like the moment To love what I have If there’s one thing I know We’re all a living mystery So I never take for granted Everything within my reach I find beauty in the miracles I slowly learn to teach If I stay inside the moment There is love beyond belief Nothing like the moment, To bring me to my knees Nothing like the moment To cure my disease Nothing like the moment To take what you can grab Nothing like the moment To love what I have
8.
Erase my inhibitions There’s nothing more to say Let the silence ruminate As it lingers center stage This is just a passing moment There’s magic on the way I might think I hold the answers But nothings here to stay I don’t want to wonder anymore When it’s all said and done I want to know how it feels to be loved Like I’m the only one under the sun You could say that I’m a dreamer On a mission to create A little piece of mind I only hope you can relate When words don’t seem to flow And things just won’t go my way I move closer to the question Do I accept what I can’t change? I don’t want to wonder anymore When it’s all said and done I want to know how it feels to be loved Like I’m the only one under the sun Inspiration comes In every shape and form I never claim to know Exactly what it’s for I don’t want to wonder anymore When it’s all said and done I want to know how it feels to be loved Like I’m the only one under the sun

Give or Take 03:39
Got more to gain Than I have to lose I would slip away If I had to choose Something more to say I don’t mean to complain Wish I could stop running But I know I can’t stay Wish I knew why I get so misdirected the harder I try Life provides contradictions If I knew how to fly I would shed these blues Let my thoughts reside between the sun and the moon They say the best things in life Come from letting them go So I accept my regrets Nothing more, nothing less They say you reap what you sew So I leave room to grow I do my best not to digress Cause we're all stars in this fortunate mess If I could accept Right where I stand Without a second guess I’d resign my demands Let the elements direct my flow And don’t forget To remind myself that I'm whole Got time to heal Even more to learn Give or take I feel Like my passion burns Bright as the ocean On a brand new day Like a second chance That spans past what you can see They say the best things in life Come from letting them go So I accept my regrets Nothing more, nothing less They say you reap what you sew So I leave room to grow I do my best not to digress Cause we're all stars in life's fortunate mess

When the night falls and the day has passed And you don’t know where to go cause you’re moving too fast Wont you slow down and spend a little time with me When you can’t think and you’re all out of time And you’re looking for a dollar but you don’t have a dime I won’t blame you for taking what you need for free Let’s make a toast Here’s to you And all those times we made it through There’s nothing like Falling into something that feels brand new Let’s make a toast Here’s to you And all those times we made it through There’s something bout Knowing you’ve got nothing else left to lose When you’re out of luck and you can’t move on And you keep going back but it feels all wrong I hope you stay strong And leave a little room to breathe When I can’t lie to myself anymore And all signs are pointing at the keys on the floor If you wanna take a ride We can go and get lost along the sea Let’s make a toast Here’s to you And all those times we made it through There’s nothing like Falling into something that feels brand new Let’s make a toast Here’s to you And all those times we made it through There’s something bout Knowing you’ve got nothing else left to lose
