SONG LYRICS

AWAY FROM THE SHADOWS

She went down to the station

Already missed that train

The same one as before

That lead her to his door

Full of hope and faith

Left standing alone again


We got run out of Memphis

Another back room Parlor Game

All regrets left unpaid 

Like bad luck from a side show arcade

Full of hope and faith

Left standing Alone again


Don’t you know it’s times like this

When the breaking down turns to bliss

The only sight I need

Is the light I seek

Away from the Shadows

Away from the shadows


Another line left in waiting

No more jobs that day

Hard to find my way of

Bringing home that daily wage

Full of hope and faith

Left standing Alone again


Only light - comes to me

Only light I need  

Only light I see 

Only light I seek 


Away from the shadows

Away from the shadows

Light comes to me

Light comes to me

Light comes to me

LUCIA

Lucia , what do you see

Will your eyes be telling me

That I , I want more than this 

And will you be there 

for that second kiss

that I know is true

My Lucia , I want you near.


My Lucia , I want you near.

My Lucia , I want you near.

My Lucia , I want you here.

KEEP THIS HEARTACHE ALIVE

Been around to long to know what’s right

Only know what feels better

Replay days and lonely nights 

don’t stop comin’

Saw this news in an old bar Room light

Said you better be weary

Living these days of fast delight ends up making wasted time.


Me I’m running - just to keep from 

falling down

Knocked on my back again

And I can’t get up

To keep this heart ache Alive , 

to keep this Heart ache.


Another stray lured me in tonight.

Said I got what your after

Every time I hear that line again,

I should hit the road running

Show me what you got I said

I’ll let you in this charming disaster.


Me I’m running - just to keep from 

falling down

Knocked on my back again

And I can’t get up

To keep this heart ache Alive ,

 to keep this Heart ache.

Do you still want it? 

Like I knew you said you would

Set me straight Honey 

with a backstreet sway

And a Lover’s lie.


Me I’m running just to keep 

from falling down

Knocked on my back again

And I can’t get up

To Keep this heart ache Alive , 

to keep this Heart ache.


Knocked on my back again

And I can’t get up

To Keep this heart ache Alive ,

 to keep this Heart ache.

WHAT SHE WANTS

I smell the coffee 

from a Saturday's repent. 

We drank their wine 

and danced like royalty

I rolled the dice and 

hoped they'd stay the same 

Another fractured sense of cruelty's game it's cruelty's game


She wants to be restrained 

She can't deny her feelings

Those pretty whips, studded chains

Shiny black It's so appealing

Tie me up  

I'm pleading/bleeding


Another day slips past in revelry

I'm pushing the clock, counting my wage

I paid the price but won't be sold again

I didn't advertise for malady in this fantasy


If only One could be the One

not lose the right

to come undone

And still be so refined

Not catered through this life

of an undeserving kind 

being told just who is right 

Not what I want, it's what I need

Not holding IN.


She wants to be restrained 

She can't deny her feelings

Those pretty whips , studded chains

Shiny black It's so appealing

Tie me up  

I'm pleading/bleeding


And still be so refined

Not catered through this life

of an undeserving kind 

being told just who is right 

Not what I want, it's what I need

Not holding IN.

NOTHING"S SACRED

You told me that - 

These days would last forever

I pissed them away

Little did I know - I'd be back in stitches

I couldn't last a day

Maybe in another light 

I'll find a reason 

to not throw it all away


Be kind to yourself, Be kind My dear

Be kind to yourself - I'll keep running


I can't seem to remember 

what i'm trying to forget

Or what I wanted to say

Waiting for a sign of blinding mercy

I get on my knees and pray


Don't you wonder how it should feel

It's another compromise

Brought on by this fear

of whose going to survive


You told me that - 

these days would last forever.

You told me that - 

these days would last forever.

You told me that - 

these days would last forever.


Be kind to yourself, Be kind My dear

Be kind to Yourself - I'll keep running

I'll keep Running, I'll Keep Running

ANOTHER CAMOUFLAGE

You've been expanding the possibility

of walking out the door

And if you're expecting another tragedy

I know you're in for sure

Cause don't you wish you had another

Camouflage to wrap on

A multi colored understated life

that's always right , burning bright

underneath your painted sun.


Now you've been wanting 

to bring it back again

Cause you've been down before

And if it's worth breaking apart

I know you're in for more.


Cause don't you wish you had another

Camouflage to wrap on

A multi colored understated life

that's always right , burning bright

underneath your painted sun.

MY BRIDGETTE

I've been thinking about Bridgette

Fact it's making my heart stumble

As I sit here hoping for release

Don't know if I should freeze or follow

And I can't fake what is true

Her touch was oh so tender

I remember when I lost my innocence

With my Bridgette

oh she's fine my Bridgette 


I've been wasting all these hours away

thinking what i could do with her

As my mind slips into a dreamland with that girl

Hyptomatic trance beyond belief


And I can't fake what is true

Her touch was oh so tender

I remember when I lost my innocence

With my Bridgette

oh she's fine my Bridgette 


come over here honey yeah you

you caught me when you walked in the room

you know what I'm talkin' about

wearing that fine lingerie down that Champs Else way

Don't gimme that laze' faire  just bring it over here


And I can't fake what is true

Her kiss was oh so tender

I remember when I lost my innocence

With my Bridgette

oh she's fine my Bridgette 

That girl is mine

My Bridgette

ELOQUENT SADNESS

She Calls, But she doesn't want an answer

I'm out, Out Looking for answers

damn this feeling, I goes too fast but somehow tries to linger

I'm caught in this go round

between another lie

 but still I'm falling


Could you believe Eloquent Sadness 

is the way she felt in side

Addiction's release tearing her heart out like an old friend in disguise


She said I found it ,

 I thought it 'd be sublime

Another kind of castrating candy

You wait , it's charm, It'll suck you in

Stealing your beauty , leave you wanting.


Could you believe Eloquent Sadness 

is the way she felt in side

Addiction's release tearing her heart out like an old friend in disguise

WASTED TIME

You wasted all my time

trying to arrive in world just made for One

I'm always on the make

trying to escape. the meaning of these words

wanting to make them real - being a liar

Throwing it back at you


Give it up I cried

It's a battle fought and i'm not ready to lose.

Wondering whose the one to take this pain be still - become immune.

Moving on I thought I'd be alright but still there's always you.

Slowly breaking my heart in two.


I'm always in the way

No matter what I say, there's always someone else

Wanting to close that deal, Being a Liar


Time puts me in my place

Trying to relate the meaning of these words

wanting to make them real - being a liar

Throwing it back at you


TAKE ME DOWN

If I asked you to not bring this round

Would you want take this out there

leave it as a lost and found

Cause even if I wanted to

Let these feelings drown.

I’d beat it black and blue

and leave it out of conversation

those things you wanted me to lose

 

If I asked you to not take this down

Would you want take this out there

like to a wrong side of town

Cause even if I wanted to

Let these feelings drown.

I’d beat it black and blue

and leave it out of conversation

those things you wanted me to lose

 

Cause all you need is - all you need is

All you need is love

All you need is 

All you need is 

All you need is love

Cause even if I wanted to

Let these feelings drown.

I’d beat it black and blue

and leave it out of conversation

those things you wanted me to lose 

All you need is 

All you need is

All you need is love

FAVORITE MEDLEY/ BOTH OF US KNEW BETTER

 Because your rain keeps coming down

Keeps cutting deeper this time around


Both of us knew better than to think we had it all

 Cause I know a place where the room gets hot

I'll take you there 'cause it's all I got

It'll lift you up and blow you away


Both of us knew better than to think we had it all

Both of us knew better than to think we had it all


FLOWER POWER

 Late at night the clock won’t stop

Your mind is wide awake

Seeing double you just can’t decide if tomorrow ever waits

Flowers, Flowers everywhere

Exploding like a sun

Laughter fills the treetops there 

Everyone’s having Fun


Leave it up to the politicians 

acting out our fate

Setting the table Oh so politely

A new world in the make

Details, oil spills

It’s class dismissed with no 

homework assignments

Schooled boys with bigger toys, Castaways like Robinson Caruso


It’s always better when you sleep with your eyes open


Flowers, Flowers everywhere

Exploding like a sun

Laughter fills the treetops there 

Everyone’s having Fun


If you thought all members were alike 

let me fly this by you

No discounts apply it’s second rate 

They’ll cut your angels in two


It’s always better when you sleep with your eyes open
