Hey, I know it’s late, are you awake? And Hey, I’ll take a chance, not gonna wait… ‘Cause I, I just want to matter to you And do you, you feel something to? ‘cause I, I want better (than what I had before) And my, eyes are open And she said….and she said She said I know that it's late, and maybe it’s something that I drank but it’s not crazy, as I’m sitting here now I just want you know I’m going to take things slow, and just maybe… I’ve known heartbreak before, I’m not going to open this door, unless its changing I’m looking for something that stays, I’m not just in it for today ‘cause feeling lately…it’s time to break away ‘Cause I, I want better (than what I had before) And my, eyes are open ‘cause I, I want better (than what I had before) And my, eyes are open Hey, are you awake? I know its late… And hey, I’ll take a chance, not going to wait

You came at me fast, like tidal wave Swept me off my feet, flooded all my things Took away the Earth, for me to stand So I learned to swim, til l I came to land I want to soak you up, you can water me down And watch my spirit float, as my demons drown You’re the storm I want, and the force I need Just like a tidal wave, needs the sea You took down my walls, like a hurricane Let the light shine in, flood through my veins With winds so strong, that I can’t defy But I find peace, within your eye I wanna build you up, you can tear me down Because I made my walls, out of bricks of doubt You’re the storm I want, and the force I need Just like a hurricane, needs the sea Woahs and Ohs La da da da da da I wanna build you up, you can tear me down Because I made my walls, out of bricks of doubt You’re the storm I want, and the force I need Just like a hurricane, needs the sea Sometimes I wonder, sometimes I think I know that I’ll struggle, but will I sink? When I see your potential, your capability I brace my body, for calamity! I wanna pick you up, never put you down If the sky’s the limit, we’re in the clouds You’re the storm I want, and the force I need Just like a tidal wave (and a hurricane) needs the sea!

She’s not perfect, but she’s worth it. There’s nothing wrong I could spend my life by her side, singing this song When I think of, of another, my mind turns blank. Yeah this woman, she’s something that every other girl ain’t Smooth like water, beauty caught her when she was yojng Hot like fire, you’re a liar if you say I’m wrong She’s got eyes as big as the stars, I wanna see them cross my sky When she smiles she speaks the truth, she makes fools like me wise When she came to me (2x) Skin like summer, cocoa and butter, and shines like gold Watch her hair fall, hear her voice call, makes my blood run cold Look past her surface, what you’ll witness, can’t grow old Yeah it’s shining, like a diamond, it’s her beautiful soul! When she came to me (4x) I tried drugs, I tried pills, I drank all day I tried shrinks, I tried thrills, the thought of her never went away Got locked up, thrown in jail, she made me crack Yeah this woman, when she takes you heart you’re never getting it back When she came to me (4x)

I wanna stay just a little longer I wanna be, I wanna be around Because it took so long, to find a place like this I wanna marry you, if I make it through I had so much doubt when I started out Not in myself, but I think you all knew Cause it’s so cold inside, I can’t feel my toes Will you stand you beside me because I’m scared I’m so scared... Hey! You gotta hear what happened today. The phone just rings and rings Where did you go? I can still do that trick you showed me Can see she’s moving on, I wish that for you It’s much harder than I thought I hope that I can move on too Move on too, move on too, move on too Ooooohhhhhhhhh

Four men on a journey Not knowing where it would lead Would it lead to fame, would it lead to shame Hope it doesn’t lead to greed. A guitar and a dream, time to hit the road No matter how crazy it seems Start to hit to mainstream, do the famous thing Who cares if they’re acting obscene A bestselling album, TV shows The fame starts to take its toll. Losing touch with all the ones they love The sadness begins to grow This fame will make you, this fame will break you Your moment has already passed The six string stops producing hits Attention disappears in a flash… Does fame really go that fast? This world keeps spinning round Can’t tell up from down This world keeps spinning around But we’re never gonna slow it down The media machine says you no longer gleam They’ve already taken their stance The writing’s on the wall, it’s time to take your fall You never really had a chance You do whatever it takes, but you can’t shake The fact that you’ve been outgrown You change your shape, you can’t escape The fact that you sold your soul… Soon you’ll be an unknown This world keeps spinning round Can’t tell up from down This world keeps spinning around But we’re never gonna slow it down This world keeps spinning round Can’t tell up from down This world keeps spinning around But we’re never gonna slow it down This world keeps spinning round Can’t tell up from down anymore This world keeps spinning around But we’re not ready to close the door

I never needed anything at all Everything I thought I wanted was just a distraction And now the time as come for me to jump But all I was prepared for was the fall I put away all my fears and all my follies Left behind the old ragged man I knew Took my key my curiosity and my six string There was only one thing left to do Just one song to set my spirit free Just one step and I begin my journey Just one wing to feel like I can fly Just one life to live before I die So slow down and take a look around Just enjoy the simplicity If the sky were falling, or the angels were calling It wouldn’t mean a damn thing to me Sometime life feels better when you’re living for whatever And you make the paths you take without a map And sometimes words or louder when you’re singing on a mountain And not thinking about when you’re going back The worlds a little lighter when you leave the past behind ya Moving on means learning how to love So take my hand come with me, show me what I’m missing I don’t need to live for who I was Just one song to set my spirit free Just one step and I begin my journey Just one wing to feel like I can fly Just one life to live before I die So slow down and take a look around Just enjoy the simplicity If the sky were falling, or the angels were calling It wouldn’t mean a damn thing to me I need nothing, I need nothing, I need nothing, I need nothing They're all distractions, they're all distractions, they're all distractions

Saw her from across the bar Didn’t think it could be Pushing on through the crowd Now I see her seat is empty Years go by and the tears have dried If you only knew what you put me through Left a hole and it’s on my mind Are you here after all this time Maybe our paths will cross Meant to be, here with me Don’t waste all your time Am I even on your All have made mistakes And time is… Traveling through the clouds You’re on the ground, not gonna look down Time to see what the world will bring I’m with you free when I’m fast asleep

Welcome, to the eye of the storm Welcome to the eye of the storm, while you’re here you’re safe from harm Come on in and leave your cares, ‘cause outside chaos fills the air… Running away, I’ve had my fill Looking for a place, where time stands still We live our lives, so uptight And then we wonder, why we’re not alright… Relax your mind, let down your hair Follow me, I’ll take you there Trying to, escape the hype It’s time find, you’re mellow life Welcome to the eye of the storm Reach for something new, watch it slip right through I don’t know what I’m waiting for, try to find that place once more Welcome to the eye of the storm, while you’re here you’re safe from harm Come on in, and leave your cares, ‘cause outside fills the air Welcome to the eye Welcome to the eye Welcome to the eye of the storm

It's been four years and now I think that is gone Finally gone, gone away I wasted so many lonely tears leaning over the railing Wasting, wasting away I took four days or five I'm not really sure But the ocean air, it made things so clear My hopes, my thoughts, my mind, they all were free But to sum it up, I still can't find the words That's because, I'd already spent all my best words In a conversation, that no one ever heard Couldn't help but feel that way After the long drive I don't really miss the dive What did it take for me To see what I now see If you had known I was there Would you have even cared? Don't really miss the dive...

The trees sway, in the morning light It's such a calming sight, but I am still here Will you take me, to where the corn rows grow Midwest winds blow, 'cuz I can't stay here There's a cargo train, just down the road Where noone goes, maybe I could catch a ride I'd jump inside and head up North, sway back and forth Start a brand new life I could sneak right out when the sun comes up The trees will sway to wish me luck On my ride... I've drawn a map, it's somewhat crude I've packed my clothes, gonna bring some food On my ride... But I'm too young, I can't set the date I can't emancipate, I know it's not the time Maybe when I'm nine The trees sway, in the morning light It's such a calming sight, but I am still here Will you take me, to where the corn rows grow Midwest winds blow, 'cuz I can't stay here

Where are you? What did you do? The aspens sing your melodies, but the branches wrap their arms around... You... The joker takes this life from me Unbound, yet not free its nothing new I never knew you’d turn to stone When Medusa’s in your rear view mirror shell grab you by the bones Take your time... and dethrone me I wouldn’t even care Take my spine and... stone me Because when your gone theres nothing... there The phantom of memory strikes my heart Two minds the same hue but wavelengths apart I’d rather float alone alone the sea Then reflect on your flaws I find in me Take your time... and dethrone me I wouldn’t even care Take my spine and... stone me Because when your gone theres nothing... there Where are you? Take your time... and dethrone me I wouldn’t even care Take my spine and... stone me Because when your gone theres nothing... there Theres nothing... there Theres nothing... there Theres nothing
