lyrics

 

Goodbye Day

Oh, sincerely
I must tell you that I really
Love you dearly
But you are so obsessed with yourself
There's no room for me
You can't give me all the things I need

We've said all we can say
Except our last goodnight
To end this day
Don't try changing my mind
You won't find a way
Just say hello
To our goodbye day

Your reflection
What you see without detection
I see clearly
All your perfect imperfections
Colors turn to gray
I know it's time for me
To go away

Just look behind you now
It won't be me who's standing there

Just say hello to our goodbye day

We've said all we can say
Except our last goodnight
To end this day
Don't try changing my mind
You won't find a way
Just say hello
To our goodbye day

 

It's Too Real (Big Scary Animal)

You keep talkin' - who you trying to kid?
Tryin' to keep your feelings hid
And I'm a prisoner of the past
It's so hard to make a good thing last

We know history
Over and over, will it repeat
Hey you, it's only me
No heart on my sleeve

Here we go, some things are inevitable
Don't we know, it could be so beautiful
It's too real 
Situation flammable
Love is, love is, love is....
A big scary animal

Hey girl, be a man
Why'd you let it get out of hand
Hey boy, be a girl
Who wants to live in a man's world?

Come down, feel the ground
We can't keep going 'round and around
I know it's only you
Can I refuse? Can I refuse? Can I refuse?

Hey boy, serves you right
Why'd you have to take that bite
Hey girl, play your game
God knows they're all the same

Hey girl, listen up
No use drink' from that broken cup
Hey man, feel the fear
Someday I'm gonna catch your tears

Here we go, some things are inevitable
Don't we know, it could be so beautiful
It's too real
Situation flammable
Love is, love is, love is....
A big scary animal
 

 

Too Much Water

Dreams in the night
Dreams overflow
Building bridges to each other
Hearts make the waters flow

Sunlight and diamonds
Reflecting hope
Making journeys to each other
Going where lovers go

You were sleeping, I was walking
To the rhythm of the falling rain
Too much water, to cross over
All the bridges falling down

You sing me songs
With overtures
From strange exotic places
Words I've never known

Wait 'til the morning
Don't send me back
Don't send me back across the rainbow
No return to where I've been

You were reaching, I was taken
To the river in the light of dawn
Too much water, to cross over
All the bridges falling down

Falling down
Come lie beside me
Lie beside me now
Beneath the waves
Beauty surrounds us
 
Lay Down Your Arms

Your words how they cut so deep
I can hear you in my sleep
Lying here, wishing here
Wishing here, waiting

You forget I know your tender spots
But I'll be careful with your heart
But I'm the one loving you
So come on and love me

Lay down your arms
Lay down, down, down, down
Why'd you want to go
And shoot love to the ground
Lay down your arms
Lay down, down, down down
Lay with me

Sometimes I can be so cold
I let you in but I don't let go
Pulling you, pushing you
Pushing you, pulling

Don't want to tear our love apart
Can we find each other in the dark?
Can we start living here?
Can we start giving?

So, we are in love
So, we are at war
But we can be on the same side
 
Where Love Hides

I open the door
You stand there in the rain
Your eyes say it all
I know 'cause I feel the same

Why do we do the things we do?
How can both of us be so cruel?
Why are we so afraid?

Take my hand and step into the light
As we touch our hearts will open wide
Kiss my lips and hold me now
And lie here by my side
Help me find a place where love hides
We will find the place where love hides

I follow you home
You smile there in the dark
I hear your words
How they twist me and tear me apart

Why do we hurt the ones we trust?
Is that all that's become of us?
Why are we so afraid?

Take my hand and step into the light
As we touch our hearts will open wide
Kiss my lips and hold me now
and lie here by my side
Help me find the place where love hides
We will find the place where love hides
 
One with You

Come wash my body
Wash away my sins
And all the ways we hurt each other
Oh how we hurt ourselves
I wanna know you now
Come out of isolation
I wanna show myself
Of God, I wanna cry out loud

I wanna be one with you
Get down to the real emotion
I wanna let love break through
We can kiss the truth
One with you
I wanna hold you deep inside my heart
Feel what love can do
To know that I am one with you

Come lie down in my garden
Leave your mark on me
I know I can't be scared forever
Come on and humble me, humble me

I'm so tired of living in my head
The precious comfort of my own bed
I've glorified my spiritual side
Now take me down to the ground where I can't hide
I know I can love myself
I wanna give to someone else
I wanna know you
Touch you
Move you
Do you
Feel you live and breathe
Deep inside of me
 

 

Wrap My Arms

You try to be a mystery
With all your eccentricities
Every move is so surreal
You can't touch what you really feel

I see a deeper side
More than you know
Don't even try to hide
I've been everywhere you go

All I want
Is to wrap my arms around your world
Break away the chains
Set you free
With everything that I can give to you
Wrap my arms around your world

You try to push the truth away
With all your witty repartee
A psychedelic romeo
Who thinks and does it all for show

I see myself in you
I know we're both afraid
There is an emptiness
Behind our masquerade

All I want
Is to wrap my arms around your world
All I want
Is to wrap my arms around your world
 
Tell Me

I think we've both been here before
There doesn't seem to be much more
My mind is shut, the door is closed
Am I alone?

We're sitting here, we're eye to eye
We've crashed into a wall so high
Fear's taken us two prisoners
Can we let go?

Tell me your darkest secret, tell me
Show me what you don't want me to see
Let me in, I want to know you, hold me
Tell me your darkest secret

I'll tell you mine

We used to live for honesty
Trust was our security
We're walking down two different paths
We've lost our way

What's wrong with wanting everything
Dark and light and in between
What will be our saving grace?
What can we say?

Unlock the door, come inside
There's no reason to be afraid
Just talk to me

We can hear the cry of love
It echoes deep and far above
What will be our saving grace?
What will we say?
 

 

Windows of the World

Just like a rose without a thorn
Defenses fade, we've come undone
Desire, the answer for harmony
This moment together
We can see

Deep into the night
We're looking through the windows of the world
Underneath the sky
We're opening the windows of the world

We stay afloat on this sea of storms
The tides of time carry us along
Beginning and ending with what we know
Surrender emotions
Here we go

Deep into the night
We're looking through the windows of the world
Underneath the sky
We're opening the windows of the world

Beginning and ending with what we know
Surrender emotions
Here we go

Deep into the night
We're looking through the windows of the world
Underneath the sky
We're opening the windows of the world
 

Here Comes My Baby

Hello, it's me
The one who told you no
I don't care if you don't like it
But I had to let you know
That love is at the door
And it's pounding to be let in
There's angels on the ceiling
My heart is on the floor
And I can't just be your friend

Here comes my baby, walking back to me
Here comes my baby, for all the world to see
Why don't you stay 'til tomorrow
I don't wanna let you go
Here comes my baby

How long did I
Refuse to see the light
How could I deny
It must have been my pride
You say you're on your way
Before you go I'll be there
I've felt a resurrection
All my senses have returned
Oh, this I swear
It won't be long
(I tell, I tell myself)
Just be strong
(I tell, I tell myself)
Here comes my baby, walking back to me
Here comes my baby, for all the world to see
Why don't you stay 'til tomorrow
I don't wanna let you go
Here comes my baby
