There Is Love

V1
Holding on wrong
Holding on right
But inside all the answers
Are thousands of whys
To many days, turn to night
Using our arms to fight

Chorus
And be my love the ever stronger
Hands keep separating hands
And as my heart beats ever longer,
There is love, in the world I am


V2
Lay down your heart,
Lay down your life
'Cause there's so much we're missing
Under this sky
Just take one hand, and try....


Chorus
And be my love the ever stronger
Hands keep separating hands
And as my heart beats ever longer,
There is love, in the world I am

Bridge
Hate don't take my hand
Hate don't understand


Chorus
So be my love the ever stronger
Hands keep separating hands
And as my heart beats ever longer,
There is love, in the world I am
There is love in the world, I am
There is love, in the world....I am


 

Lockets Of Pearl



V1
Life didn't turn out the way she had planned, 
you see it in her eyes.
But sitting alone there, you just feel the sad,
Story of her life.

Chorus
Lockets of pearl
hang from her neckline
I was her girl
and she used to be mine, 
she used to be mine.

Bridge
And she don't even know my name
She don't even know my name

V2
She opens the locket
The lines on her face
Shadow the sunlight
She stares at the picture
Her smile bears a trace
of who she was in time

Chorus
Lockets of pearl
hang from her neckline
I was her girl
and she used to be mine
she used to be mine

and she used to be mine
she used to be mine

Bridge
And she don't even know my name
she don't even know my name

She don't even know my name
Mama been here...every day

Chorus
Lockets of pearl
hang from her neckline
I was her girl
and she used to be mine,

Chorus

Lockets of pearl
hang from her neckline
I was her girl
and she used to be mine,
she used to be mine
she used to be mine
she used to be mine


 

Till I Can Fly

V1
Woke up to the sound of birds
an ordinary day.
Sometimes just the ordinary,
takes your breath away.

Prechorus
'Cause I feel small
beneath this sky.


Chorus
'Cause I, I, I, can't fly

V2
I can hear the sound of words,
locked inside my head
There's no place to run and hide,
So I smile instead


Prechorus
'Cause I am small
beneath this sky

Chorus
"cause I, I, I, can't fly

V3
Standing by my window
feel the sun across my face
looking for the reasons,
the empathy and grace

Bridge
And I feel like god's not listening, 'cause there's
so much god damn sufferring..., and...

Prechorus
I will crawl

beneath this sky

Chorus
'
Till, I, I, I, can fly.
'Till I can fly...


 

In The World Tonight

V1
In the world, the world tonight, oh people crying, and we turn away.

And, it don't it don't seem right, oh, people lying, without a way.

Pre-chorus
In the world tonight, do you wonder why?

Chorus
Oh we feel lost, so lost, if you listen, you can hear the cry
Oh we feel lost, so lost, used to be someone kissed you goodnight.

On the other, the other side, people trying, not to fade away.

Bring inside, inside their light, oh like they are shining, like it's not too late.

In the world tonight, do you wonder why?

Oh we feel lost, so lost, if you listen, you can hear the cry
Oh we feel lost, so lost, used to be someone kissed you goodnight.

And it don't it don't seem right, oh this world is crying, got to be a

better way.....

Someone Extraordinary Too

V1
In and out of my life
The memories are faded
These moments in time,
did we even say it?

Prechorus
All I remember
When you left I cried

Chorus
You said that you
found, someone else extraordinary
I, thought, I could be that someone
that you, found, so much more than temporary,
Someone extraordinary too.

V2
Tiny grains of sand,
you slipped through my fingers
Let go of my hand
It happened one Winter

Prechorus
That day in December
Snow outside

Chorus
You said that you, found,
someone else extraordinary,
I thought, I could be that someone, that
you, found, so much more than temporary,
Someone extraordinary too.

Bridge
And I closed my eyes when you walked away
but, inside my heart, it whispered...stay.....

Pre chorus
You said that you
found, someone else extraordinary,
I thought, I could be that someone, that
you, found, so much more than temporary
Someone extraordinary too.

Faith Falling

V1
Faith is a fall, into the air
believing in something you don't know is there.
Doubt is a word, that sometimes you hear.
And in that room, faith can quickly disappear.

Pre chorus
And I feel like I'm falling, feel like I'm falling, what if 'm

falling, into what I pretend, 

Chorus
isn't just faith falling, slippin' through my hands?

V2
Arms open wide, afraid to let go, gravity pulling
at the things I know
Feet on the ground, not knowing what's real
torn between things I know, and what I feel


Pre chorus
And I feel like I'm falling, feel like I'm falling, what if 'm falling,

into what I pretend, 

Chorus
isn't just faith falling, slippin' through my hands?

Bridge
oooh oooh oooh
oooh, oooh, oooh


Pre chorus
And I feel like I'm falling, feel like I'm falling, what if 'm falling,

into what I pretend, 

Chorus
isn't just faith falling, slippin' through my hands?


ooooh ooooh ooooh

Ocean Of Why


 

V1

Something In my heart

it wont let me breath

Holding on to something

We Used To Be


 

And I, I'm tired of wasting hours

thinkin' yesterday

Cause some things are lost

To things we can't change


Pre-Chorus

Tryin' to find my way back

Cause life, it just don't take back

Things left far behind

And it hurts on the inside


 

Begging just to hold on

to things that should be long gone

arms once open wide

Been holding on too tight


Chorus

Ocean of Why

Teardrops in the tides


V2

Wakin' up tomorrow

Not by your side

Sure of what I'm thinkin'

No words to hide


 

Cause there's nothing to a heart

if it can't be true

Cause you can't be me

And I can't be... you


Pre-chorus

Tryin' to find my way back

Cause life, it just don't take back

Things left far behind

And it hurts on the inside


 

Begging just to hold on

to things that should be long gone

arms once open wide

Been holding on too tight


Chorus

Ocean Of Why

teardrops In The Tide


 

Bridge
 

I'm trying to find my way

My way back

'cause life don't let' ya back

My way

My way back


 

'Cause I've been holdin' too tight


Chorus

Ocean Of Why

teardrops In The Tide

Ocean Of Why

Ocean Of Why

Ocean, Ocean

Ocean, Ocean

Ocean of why

teardrops in …..the tide


 

 

Someone Listening

V1

Feel like I'm drifting down this river- don't know which way to go

To keep my head above this water-it's high and I'm low

If this world was a little kinder-there'd be no need to cry

our hearts could open even wider- no need to hide


 

Please let me stay a little longer- got so much more to tell

To believe a little stronger, just need some help

I know there's someone right beside me I don't know who it is

That feeling somewhere deep inside-  when it's hard to live


Pre-chorus

And, I pray

Pray-eh

Chorus

Please tell me there might be someone listening

Please tell me there might be someone listening

V2

Please let me stay a little longer- got so much more to tell

To believe a little stronger, just need some help

I know there's someone right beside me I don't know who it is

That feeling somewhere deep inside-  when it's hard to live

Pre-chorus

And, I pray

Pray-eh

Chorus

Please tell me there might be someone listening

Please tell me there might be someone listening

Bridge

Inside I

Hear this cry

Hear my cry

Close my eyes

words of mine

sending them up to the sky


V3

Feel like I'm drifting down this river

Don't know which way to go

Hard to believe that I'm not blinder

by what I don't know


 

I know there's someone right beside me

I don't know who it is

That feeling somewhere deep inside

Just wanna live

Pre-chorus

And, I pray

Pray-eh

Chorus

Please tell me there might be someone listening

Please tell me there might be someone listening

And, I pray

Pray-eh

Please tell me there might be someone listening

Please tell me there might be someone listening

Please tell me there might be someone listening

Tell me tell me

Please tell me there might be someone...

Bring It Back Yesterday

 

V1
Tiny Precious, in my hands,
holding on to what you understand.
And I will never, let you fall
'cause you don't know what you don't know is you have my heart.

Prechorus
You were only hear, just yesterday
looking at the world in a brand new way
Nothing standing in your way

Chorus
Bring it back, bring it back yesterday
oooh ooooh ooooh

V2
Remember running, in the sand?
Life was easy when you held my hand.
When you reached out, into the dark,
I would always help you count the stars.....

Pre chorus
You were only here just yesterday
looking at the world in a brand new way
nothing standing in your way,

Chorus
bring it back, bring it back yesterday.
oooh, oooh, ooooh

Bridge
Bridge
You'll always be, my little girl
inside my heart, you know

V3
Driving down this, boulevard, memories streaming as the lights get far. Tiny dancer, radio, you said "you used to sing it to me, now I love it so"

Pre chorus
You were only here just yesterday
looking at the world in a brand new way
nothing standing in your way

Chorus
Bring it back, bring it back yesterday
ooh ooh oooh
