lyrics

X

I've been searching
Searching for somebody
Someone who can love me
Cause I can't love myself

I've been begging
Begging for forgiveness
But how can you
How can you
When I can't forgive myself

My only love
You were my only love 
My only love
You were my only love

I've been wandering, wondering
Should I have been could I have been
More of me, less of me
Which part was the best of me
How can we start again
Can we start again 

My only love
You were my only love 
My only love
You were my only love


BACK

It's been a while since I last saw you
Twenty-one days to be exact
Though the road is where I lay my head
All of the streetlights say come back
To you my love, oh my love

How many hours have I been driving
So many places I've lost track
Though the road is where my eyes look to
My minds imagining me back
To you my love, oh my love

I'm coming home (I'm on my way)
I'm on my way back home

How many hours have I been driving
So many places I've lost track
But you don't have to hold your head my dear
Cause very soon I will be back
To you my love, oh my love


Between Truth and Lies

Everybody thinks that it's something new from the things they wear to the things they try to do isn't it true
But I like things that have been good to me like a clean t-shirt and a blue pair of jeans cause I ain't in no movie scenes
Now I'm not plain but I'm no crook stealing frayed jeans to look the look
It's not me is it you? You're trying to lose the girl that you once knew

Don't tell me your truths and don't tell me your lies
Everything on your inside shows outside

I like talking but I can listen too and I lack love cause I'm missing you
Everybody missing something everybody needs someone
No makeup can cover who you are unhappy pretending that there's no scars
It hurt's just to breathe you look inside your soul but you can't leave

Don't tell me your truths and don't tell me your lies
Everything on your inside shows outside
Shows inside through your disguise I see it your eyes between those lies 

Outside people humming ain't everybody running
From the truth the hurt the past we run to fast where were we last?


Coming Home

The road goes on for days the clouds cry their tears of gray
It's getting colder the day's getting dark but this stormy weather can't keep me apart from you

The music on the stereo sings 'You've got so far to go' I'm on my way
The wind whispers 'You're getting close' signs with city names I know I'm on my way
I'm on my way

The road goes on for miles and I've been thinking about you for quite some time now
It's getting colder the day's getting dark but this stormy weather can't keep me apart from you

The music on the stereo now sings 'I wish I was homeward bound' I'm on my way
The wind whispers 'You're getting close' familiar buildings shops and roads I'm on my way
I'm on my way

I'm coming home


Counting Down the Days

The thought of you just the thought of you now the winter's not so cold
I'm counting down the days 'til my love comes home

When I hear your voice I feel your voice vibrating through my soul
I'm counting down the days 'til my love comes

But you're so far away
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Come home
 


Estelle

I don't know  you but I know if I did I would find out you're the one I would give
All of my heart to and all of my time and together we be two of a kind

I don't know you all I know is your name and France is the country from where you just came
And your hair it burns red in the light I called you twice today to no answer no reply
I've been wondering I'm just wondering wondering why
Oh Estelle, Estelle you make me die


Eventually

Someone told me love is tragic she's more trouble than she's worth
And if you think you've really found it then let her go set her free
Cause your hearts will turn eventually

I must admit I felt divided so was I meant to be alone
But now I've met you I've decided I can't let you go or set you free
Cause our hearts might turn eventually

Further down the road is heartache so I'm told
But all I see is you all I feel is love

Someone told me love is tragic I have to say I disagree
And when you ask me how I found it I'll tell you trust is what you need
Cause your heart will turn you'll crash and burn but you gotta live you gotta learn eventually


Forever Means Forever

I love you so much I'll love you forever I mean forever
I love you so much I'll kiss you forever hold you forever

When my arms grow tired I'll be sure to sing you this song
When we lose control I'll give in I'll be wrong
Cause forever means forever

I love you so much I'll be your forever I am yours forever


Hesitation


What does this hesitation mean if I try harder I’ll make scene
But when the prize is worth the risk I’ll take a chance and go for it

What are her eyes telling me if I look harder I might blink
But when her lips are worth my wait I can’t I won’t hesitate

She’s so beautifully dressed my stomach’s in a mess
Can I pull this off pull of these butterflies

What does this conversation mean if I keep quiet she might think
I’m just here to waste her time but I’m just lost in her eyes

My hands in my pockets my eyes on the table
She wants me she wants me I know I am capable
Eyes switch to dress down to shoes down to floor
She wants me she wants me but I want her more

 

 


If You

If you take some of your time and mix it in with mine
Our chemicals create a potion that works quick even though our hearts and our hands work opposite

If you take some of your plans and make them our plans
We'll crash, collide, create constellations in the sky to Mars and Venus no divide

If you take some of your smiles and press them onto mine our lips will close, connect
Your skin will blend with mine we'll have forever but I'll take your love seconds at a time

Blue to green to grey don't close your eyes I'm afraid our love might fade away
Blue to green to grey don't close your eyes I'm afraid you'll fade away
Don't fade away


WHEN WE'RE COLD

When we're cold we can light a fire with the sparks that fly when you're hand touches mine

Lyrics by Matt Amick


We Can Go Wherever We Want


We can go wherever we want let’s go to the city
And wander museums stare at Picassos
We can go wherever we want let’s go to the country
And hike in the valleys and I'll bring the wine

I've been thinking of places that we've never been and things we can do that you would enjoy
And I'd hold you and you'd hold me

We can go wherever we want let’s drive to Los Angeles
Hold hands in the car find out who we are and buy things we don’t need
We can go wherever we want let’s fly to Boston
Let’s just get lost in the subways and snow

I've been thinking of places that we've never been and things we can do that you would enjoy
And I'd hold you and you'd hold me

I've been thinking of places that we've never been and how I can kiss you and hold you and you'd hold me

We can go wherever we want but you say 'Let's stay here 
Baby let's lay here my love let's just stay here my love
We'll just stay here my love'

 


Waiting

Waiting for someone waiting for something to be done
I’ve been waiting for a while now for that good love to come

Watching the sunrise watching the clouds to blue to gray
I’ve been waiting for the wind to blow good love my way

What good’s a heart what good’s a heart with no one to love
Will I be waiting for forever I’ll find out soon enough

I'm always analyzing what and when did I do wrong
Cause I held love in my hands once and in a second it was gone

What good’s a heart what good’s a heart with no one to love
Will I be waiting for forever darling I’ll find out soon enough

Maybe love will take a while maybe love might find me soon
Maybe waiting slows me down and I can change my blues to our maroons
I’ll find a way I’ll find your way

Watching the sunrise watching the clouds turn blue and gray
You’ve been waiting for too long but don’t worry I’m on my way


Conversing with a Friend about Last Weekend

On the first day we didn't go outside
I'm sure the beach was lovely but we stayed in bed from day to night 
The next day we woke up with the sun
We had something for breakfast all I remember was when the night begun

She was stunning i mean really she didn't even try at all
A touch of makeup but mm her body I love her body

I'm in love I'm in deep
I'm always thinking about her with me
I'm in love, I'm in deep
I'm always thinking about her with me

OK, you are right let's go past what I saw
She's following her dreams and her best friends are her Dad and Mom
Yea I know, too good to be true
But there is nothing wrong with her I'm telling you I'm telling you

She was perfect i mean really she didn't even try at all
Great conversation but mm her lips I love her lips

I'm in love I'm in deep
I'm always thinking about her with me
I'm in love, I'm in deep
I'm always thinking about her with me

I'm in love I'm in deep


You Make Me Feel Alive

Whenever my hearts feels empty whenever my soul feels dry
You make me feel alive
Tell me that I am special, listen to when I cry
You make me feel alive

Oh oh oh your love's the mountains
Oh oh oh your love's the sea
Oh oh oh your love's forever 
Oh oh oh your love's for me
Whenever I need you near me, you're always by my side
You make me feel alive

Whenever I think I'm ugly and I'm broken down inside
You make me feel alive
Show me how to stand tall teach me to inspire
You make me feel alive


05/30/16

Another gorgeous day cause I'm spending it with you 
And I want nothing more then to spend it all with you
Whether walking in the park whether lying here in bed
When I'm with you it's a summer kind of day
Whether sunny or it's rain your arms or mine it's all the same
When I'm with you it's a summer kind of day

I'm so in love with you

To wake up next to you is like living in a dream (come true come true)
And I want so much more of you know what I mean
Whether walking in the park whether lying here in bed
When I'm with you it's a summer kind of day
Whether sunny or it's rain your arms or mine it's all the same
When I'm with you it's a summer kind of day

I'm so in love with you


In My Arms

It's been a long day cause you've been on my mind
Ive been wanting to hold you close
I'm still on the freeway but I will see you soon 
We won't have to wait for too long

Til I have you in my arms
Til I have you in my arms

3 more miles i'm almost there blue skies in your atmosphere
My minds been waiting at home with you 
2 stoplights and that little left I'll run the yellows and hold my breath
We won't have to wait for too long


Los Angeles

She left her house with dreams to be
in shiny silver screens
Packed her bags and left me here
My hometown beauty queen

Everyday we'd speak and she
Would talk bout what she'd seen
Movie stars and fancy cars
I'd only seen in magazines

Los Angeles treat her well
Give her a chance and I promise you
We'll make our home in your fairy tales

Days turned to months and she
Worked full time serving drinks
No more talks of movie dreams
From my hometown beauty queen

Now she cries and cries cause she
Doesn't want to be 
A waitress at a hotel bar
But I'll see, just wait and see
She'll be a California queen


05/09/16

Did I shy away
Or did I talk too much to you
But if there's nothing wrong
Tell me nothings wrong with you 
Cause I will change the world just to see you smile

Hey my love my dear
Hold my hand we'll face our fears
Darling hey my love our hearts will hold the clouds will disappear

Is it in my head
Am I in my head oh no
But if there's nothing wrong
Tell me nothing's wrong with you
Cause I would change the world to hear you laugh


Sleep

Slowly breathe slow
Sleep is just a breath away with dreams of years ago
The sheep there are plenty but the count is not exact 
With waves swimming deeper then the stars floating in the sky

Sleep rest your eyes
Sleep rest your eyes
Sleep rest your eyes
Sleep tell the night goodbye

Slowly breathe in slow
Sleep is just a breathe away with dreams of sun and snow
The constellations dance in time with the beating of your heart
The ocean plays the sounds of strings while the wind softly starts to sing


Back To Me

Come on back back to me
Here's my heart and all of me
Come on back

Let's be spontaneous
Adventurous let's be
Let's take some risks 
Close your eyes and jump with me

Worries let's forget them
New memories let's make them 
Put your mind at ease
Close your eyes and jump with me

 

 


Ampifi Session 06/21/16

I'm alone on a Tuesday night
And it's hot and I'm without you like
Where are you
Why aren't you with me

You're not alone on a Tuesday night
You're in a pool without me like
What's your name 
What do you do
Come on over

So I'm waitin' on your gentle touch
Your sweetest kiss
My arms want to hold you

  • SAND //I tried/ I tried my best to hold on/ Hold on tight to you/ All in vain/ You slipped through my hands like a fistful of sand/ Drifting with the tides of the sea/ I’m trying to find some of my mind/ By fixing my faults from the past/ But it’s all in my head and the love that I bled/ Has shriveled and died in the cold/ You slipped through my hands like a fistful of sand/ Drifting with the tides of the sea/ You were in my hands…
