Crawling in the Dark
I will dedicate And sacrifice my everything for just a second's worth Of how my story's ending And I wish I could know if the directions that I take And all the choices that I make won't end up all for nothing Show me what it's for Make me understand it I've been crawling in the dark looking for the answer Is there something more than what i've been handed? I've been crawling in the dark looking for the answer Help me carry on Assure me it's ok to use my heart and not my eyes To navigate the darkness Will the ending be ever coming suddenly? Will I ever get to see the ending to my story? Show me what it's for Make me understand it I've been crawling in the dark looking for the answer Is there something more than what i've been handed? I've been crawling in the dark looking for the answer So when and how will I know? How much further do I have to go? How much longer until I finally know? Because I'm looking and I just can't see what's in front of me In front of me Show me what it's for Make me understand it I've been crawling in the dark looking for the answer Is there something more than what i've been handed? I've been crawling in the dark looking for the answer
Remember Me
I stand here face to face With someone that I used to know He used to look at me and laugh But now he claims That he's known me for so very long But I remember being no one I wanted to be just like you So perfect, so untouchable Now you want me to be with you Someone who used to have it all Do you remember now You acted like you never noticed me Forget it Cause the gone has come around And you're not allowed to be a part of me Did you know me? Or were you too preoccupied With playing king in your small kingdom And now the real world Has stripped you of your royalty And from your kingdom you're evicted I wanted to be just like you So perfect, so untouchable Now you want me to be with you Someone who used to have it all Do you remember now You acted like you never noticed me Forget it Cause the gone has come around You're not allowed to be a part of me Part of me Part of me Part of me You're never going to be a part of me You're never going to be a part of me You're never going to be a part of me You're never going to be a part of me You're never going to be a part of me You're never going to be a part of me Do you remember now You acted like you never noticed me Forget it Cause the gone has come around You're not allowed to be a part of me Part of me Part of me Part of me
Running Away
I don't want you to give it all up And leave your own life collecting dust And I don't want you to feel sorry for me You never gave us a chance to be And I don't need you to be by my side To tell me that everything's alright I just wanted you to tell me the truth You know I'd do that for you Why are you running away? Why are you running away? Cause I did enough to show you that I Was willing to give and sacrifice And I was the one who was lifting you up When you thought your life had had enough And when I get close, you turn away There's nothing that I can do or say So now I need you to tell me the truth You know I'd do that for you So why are you running away? Why are you running away? Is it me, is it you Nothing that I can do To make you change your mind Is it me, is it you Nothing that I can do Is it a waste of time? Is it me, is it you Nothing that I can do To make you change your mind So why are you running away? Why are you running away? ...What is it I've got to say... So why are you running away? ...To make you admit you're afraid... Why are you running away?
Peices
Turn around and pick up the pieces I, like a rock, sink Sinking til I hit the bottom The water is much deeper than I thought Nothing to swim with Kicking but I keep sinking A lesson that no one could have ever taught Cause I can almost breathe the air Right beyond my fingertips I'll turn around and pick up the pieces One more push and I'll be there Back where I belong I'll turn around and pick up the pieces I see the picture Blurry but now it's in focus A fairy tale I purchased on my own I finally woke up Everything is better A chance for me to open up and grow I can almost breathe the air Right beyond my fingertips I'll turn around and pick up the pieces One more push and I'll be there Back where I belong I'll turn around and pick up the pieces Suffocating sinking further almost everyday Barely treading water knowing I will not give up I will not give up I will not give up I can almost breathe the air Right beyond my fingertips I'll turn around and pick up the pieces One more push and I'll be there Back where I belong I'll turn around and pick up the pieces Turn around and pick up the pieces
Let You Know
I just thought that I'd let you know That although I'm far I'm close to you within And all the time spent by your side Is taken deep in me Held for me to keep To look upon when I'm feeling like Everything and one Is hurting me for something or other It takes me to a better place Nowhere I'd rather go Thought I'd let you know Who you are What you do Makes me burn to be in you Who you are And what you do I'm burning to be in you I just thought that I'd let you know Being near you is A gift I only wish I could treasure But for now I'll sit and wait I'm still burning though Thought I'd let you know Who you are What you do Makes me burn to be in you Who you are What you do I'm burning to be in you Thought I'd let you know Feels like I'm falling I'm all on my own Thought I'd let you know It feels like I'm falling I'm all on my own Thought I'd let you know Who you are And what you do Makes me burn to be in you Who you are And what you do I'm burning to be in you
Better
Just when I thought that I was better I realized that I don't know what better was Is it......... Better than I used to be? Better for you or for me? I'd better hurry cause I need a better view of things I don't know what it is or what I might be coming down with Don't know where I've been Don't know where to go Can't remember all the things that I need to know All I know is that if I think about it I'd still rather be me than me be you And I'm not getting any better Cause everytime I can't remember what it's for Is it......... Better now than yesterday? Better that I am this way? I'd better not be so afraid I bet I shouldn't say I don't know what it is or what I might be coming down with Don't know where I've been Don't know where to go Can't remember all the things that I need to know All I know is that if I think about it I'd still rather be me than me be you I don't know what it is or what I might be coming down with I don't know what it is or what I might be coming down with Don't know where I've been Don't know where to go Can't remember all the things that I need to know All I know is that if I think about it I'd still rather be me than me be you Me be you
Ready For You
Go on Make me feel it's useless When in fact it's you that need to have me near So now Keep me at safe distance And with a little persistence I'll make it crystal clear I'll be around Only if you want me to Be there by your side I'm ready for you So don't be afraid Cause I know what you're going through So when you think it's time I'm ready for you Now you seem to be content with A one sided friendship with you I've got to chase Slow down so I can smell the roses But the road you chose is crooked and unpaved My tires are spinning but to no avail That I'll be around Only if you want me to Be there by your side I'm ready for you Don't be afraid Cause I know what you're going through So when you think it's time I'm ready for you I'm ready for you That I'll be around Only if you want me to Be there by your side I'm ready for you I'll be around Cause I know what you're going through So when you think it's time I'm ready for you
Up and Gone
Staring at the white above Can't tell if I'm alive or am I dead Or is it in my head? Where'd I go wrong Staring at the white above One day I closed my eyes and here I am A cold, unhappy man I've come to realize the life I have I hate The pulse I need is slowly fading Until I've lost it all I've been waiting for an inspiration For a chance I never got to take Before it's much too late Where'd I go wrong Where's the boy that used to run? Could it be he's up and gone away? He seems so far away And all the things I could have done Could it be they've up and gone away? They seem so far away It feels as if the boy in me Has left and been replaced with a cheap and bitter Imposter of myself I must find the one that used to be Approach him slow, don't be afraid to say "Can he come out and play?" Where'd I go wrong Staring at the sky above I've found a chance I'm finally going to take I've learned from my mistakes Where'd I go wrong
Too Little Too Late
I've been so long in waiting Putting my life on hold for this Chance to live out my dreams You think you know what I should Do with the choices I now have Make them benefit you What if I don't wanna hear the things you say Where were you when I was needy yesterday You want in with me, now that it's good But it's too little, too late Time and again I've asked you Just for some light to show the way I was in total darkness You act like I owe you something But I don't owe anything to anyone but me Have you no dignity? What if I don't wanna hear the things you say Where were you when I was needy yesterday You want in with me, now that it's good Where were you yesterday? What if I don't wanna hear the things you say Where were you when I was needy yesterday You want in with me, now that it's good But it's too little, too late You're too late I know exactly what I'll Do with the advice that you gave Watch me throw it all away What if I don't wanna hear the things you say Where were you when I was needy yesterday You want in with me, now that it's good Where were you yesterday? What if I don't wanna hear the things you say Where were you when I was needy yesterday You want in with me, now that it's good But it's too little, too late But it's too little, too late But it's too little, too late
Hello Again
I dream that someday we'll be able to Look back on this together and say It was for the best and that it made us Stronger today, stronger today There's much more for us to see A brand new day for you and me And with confidence I say, "We're better than ever" And I don't know where this will lead But in my life you need to be Cause I need to say, "Hello again" I'm so afraid that if I wait too long You'll never look in my eyes again With a look that gave me strength and gave me hope And made me feel I've inspired There's much more for us to see A brand new day for you and me And with confidence I say, "We're better than ever" And I don't know where this will lead But in my life you need to be Cause I need to say, "Hello again" Hello again, hello again, yea Hello again, yea There's much more for us to see A brand new day for you and me And with confidence I say, "We're better than ever" And I don't know where this will lead But in my life you need to be Cause I need to say, "Hello again"
