Tightrope


How long will it take 

for them to read between the lines and stop hoping?

Before they break the ties and let go of all the lies that they’ve been keeping


He’s become her way of dealing with the things that ache and things that aren’t

And I’m watching with blind eyes the way he reconciles her cries so recklessly


But when it comes down, to what he wants

She’ll put her hands down, and bear no guard


Because it’s hard to let go, when it’s a tightrope

That you’re walking

 

And how long will it take before they find that it’s too late

To turn around

They’re breaking down with time but both walking the thin line

between loss and longevity.


And when it comes time, to what he wants

She’ll put her hands down, and bear no guard


Because it’s hard to let go, when it’s a tightrope

That you’re walking

It’s hard to let go, when it’s a tightrope

That you’re walking

 

I know you’re feeling lost at times, 

When everything you ravel just unwinds

You’ve got to lay it down, for the last time

For the last time…


Because it’s hard to let go, when it’s a tightrope

That you’re walking

It’s hard to let go, when it’s a tightrope

That you’re walking

Story

One of the first songs I ever wrote on my 6 string Simon & Patrick acoustic guitar in my best friends basement...

Lyrics

That'll Be The Day


Summertime rolls around,

And I'm looking like crazy,

I'm standing on middle ground,

I need someone to lead me

But everytime I go hunting

I end up gracefully with nothing

I heard the fast pace, a steady race will get you there


That'll be the day...


And the bathroom smells like whiskey,

And the hallways are vacant from your touch

I feel the walls around me

And I need you so much


And just so you know,

I don't break that easy

And just so you know,

I cry like a baby


Well I could stand out in the winter

Colder than ever

Take it to myself in a soul search endeavor

Let go of the things of my past

And try to make something last


Yeah that'll be the day...


Well I'm sick and tired of all this

Working and seeing nothing

It's just like business

I though i was worth something


And just so you know

I don't break that easy

And just so you know, 

I cry like a baby


Well I could stand out in the winter

Colder than ever

Take it to myself in a soul search endeavor

Let go of the things of my past

And try to make something last

Sunny Day Song


Get up out of bed,

Rise and shine

Kick your feet up because it is

Beautiful outside


Hurry up I said,

Don't waste your time

You've got to realise that days like this are

One of a kind


We could go for a drive

Watch the bluebirds fly

On a sunny afternoon,

My oh my how the time flies


Yeah, why don't you come over

Yeah, it's here and now or never

Yeah, you've got to be a little bolder

With your choices, no one rejoices anymore


We could hitch a ride on the side of the road

Pack a bag, a book and we are good to go

And if anyone should want to tag along we'd say

Come and write your sunny day song


Because when we're driving down the road

Anywhere we will go

And when the night falls down on us all

We'll have to throw up our arms 

And together we will call


Yeah, why don't you come over

Yeah, it's here and now or never

Yeah, you've got to be a little bolder

With your choices, no one rejoices anymore


You could try to let go,

But then we'd turn around

Pick your feet off the floor to get you out of this town

And there's no turning back until you get what you asked for


Yeah, why don't you come over

Yeah, it's here and now or never

Yeah, you've got to be a little bolder

With your choices, no one rejoices anymore

Lyrics

Pardon My Eyes


I am not weak, but oh my knees are shaking

And I'm fond of you my dear.

I'd be complete, if you'd just love me

And forever share with me the years.


I cannot sleep, I only daydream

Take me where you want to would you please

I'd be just fine, with you beside me

To take my hand so we can make-believe


...and sing...ladada n dadada n dada


So Pardon my eyes,

But I'm not done looking,

At your smile


And pardon my smile,

But I won't stop grinning,

For a while


You'd be my first in line for anything

You are my conscience, you're my heart

You are my right hand, you hold me up

You keep me strong when I am lost


And that's the worst that I can say


So Pardon my eyes,

But I'm not done looking

At your smile


And pardon my smile,

But I won't stop grinning,

For a while


I will follow you wherever you go

Can we not waste any time

I will love you just as high

As we can climb.

Love Will Come Around


How do you get up and go

When what used to be there to come home to

Both disappeared on the streets

Of a drunken city avenue


And all you can do is get up 

And hang tough, but your heart keeps calling

Someone stop me from falling, stop me from falling

Stop me from life


Because it feels like I’m hardly breathing

When I think about it now

It feels like my world is caving

From the inside out

It feels like I will be waiting,

Will be waiting forever

For love to come around

 

I worked the morning time twelve to eight am, where I'd 

Mop the floors at night

Singing along to the radio playing inside the café walls in the dim light

And I met a man there who told me his story of life on the streets

Through the dead of the winter, through the nights and the weeks

He said: “I think I’m in love with you, this is me calling you home to me”

So you can stop me from falling, stop me from falling, stop me from life


Because it feels like I’m hardly breathing

When I think about it now

It feels like my world is caving

From the inside out

It feels like I will be waiting,

Will be waiting forever

For love to come around


Tiptoeing through the avenues,

The streets smell dirty

but morning will be coming soon

Lyrics

Honey Bee

 

You said you've got something to say,

I said I love you but I can't stay, 

turn back the other way

You said you're sorry and you made a mistake

I said, listen now to the words I say, see

You might be in it for my sweet love,

But I'm not about to be a part of

Your games and your chasing, because your lies I'm tracing, 

And I'm not going to lose this time

You see, I'll play babe if you pick up the pace

I love you but I'll leave you if you ever lie to my face,


So come back the dirt way,

Keep it on the offstage

This is a coming of a new age

For you and I 

(x2)


Instead of baby baby,

Can you call me honey

I'd like to take a piece of you outside

You said you want to save me

I think you want to break me

I dare you to step a foot closer my friend and try


So take the back seat boy, 

And listen up this time

I've got you wallet in my pocket and all your money is mine

I've got the five dollar bills that you wasted on me

I've got the few cheap thrills you used, 

that nobody else could use on me


And now it's two times, you're just stepping around

You've got, soft shoes that don't push the ground

So wipe your feet off at the back door

Because you're certainly not welcome here anymore


You make up, you break up then you try,

To find peace to find love in his eyes

But it should come to no surprise when he's 

Looking in your best friends eyes

So forget the second chances,

They don't exist in romances

And there's bound to be another train that passes


Instead of baby baby,

Can you call me honey

I'd like to take a piece of you outside

You said you want to save me

I think you want to break me

I dare you to step a foot closer my friend and try

First broken heart...

Lyrics

Firelight


My friends they say,

You've sure got a lot of stuff on your mind

Why don't you try to relax, 

I said I can't without the answers


Sometimes I walk down the streets at night 

To try to clear my head

Think about what that crazy man said

Again to me


Because I can't shake the memories

And I'm sick of feeling half empty

I need somebody to send me...


You laid the blankets out under the stars

While the fire burned bright and I said

Come here a little closer, I could kiss you all night

And the moonlight would shine into your eyes

And my heart would sink to the floor

Then he said I know you love me babe

But I think that I need more


My folks they say, shake it off there'll come another one

Why don't you try to kick back,

The more you lose the more you want some

Sometimes I lay down at night in bed to think of

What could be done, what could be said

To try and pick up the pieces, and put them together again


Because I can't shake the memories

And I'm sick of feeling half empty

I need somebody to send me...


You laid the blankets out under the stars

While the fire burned bright and I said

Come here a little closer, I could kiss you all night

And the moonlight would shine into your eyes

And my heart would sink to the floor

Then he said I know you love me babe

But I think that I need more

Lyrics

Drag On


Lay on your side, sit down, lay down pray to god, 

This isn’t your real life

Look to the stars open arms for the answers, 

and hold on to them tight

It’s not up to you to be true to yourself 

Just pass it on to the next guy

And hold on for dear life

 

Don’t need a job I need a break to make

Something for myself

Keep that up and you’ll wind up just like everybody else…


And drag on with the people who don’t know why

They’ve got to live their lives empty until the day they die

And drag on with the people who look to the sky, and they

Are blue in the face looking for the reasons why


And there’s blue collar, white collar all defined so by their dollar

And not the difference between,

Who was brave, who fought longer who made the world stronger

Who is fighting for the right to speak

 

Mark it square my body’s there, but my mind is on a race

Trying to keep up with the real world and all of those who’ve got it made


So drag on with the people who don’t know why

They’ve got to live their lives empty until the day they die

And drag on with the people who look to the sky, and they

Are blue in the face looking for the reasons why


I've been waiting for this,

got my plans wrapped up in my fingertips

So there's no use pointing out the things I've missed,

Because I'm half as sure that somethings going to give


So drag on with the people who don’t know why

They’ve got to live their lives empty until the day they die

And drag on with the people who look to the sky, and they

Are blue in the face looking for the reasons why...

Check Mate


I never thought that kiss and tell

Could be such a dangerous game

Before I had something to sell

Now I’ve got nothing to my name


I saw you there, I sought you out

I thought I’d checked my mate

But you were leaning on a cold shoulder

When you passed my way


And now you think about 

The ways you could have changed it

If you only would have seen it coming down

You set your sail up and you took to one direction

But you never turned the stern or the bow


And then he said how,

How do you do?

I guess I’m doing fine

I guess I just thought that you would always be mine


So when you took the turnaround, I took the alternate route

I swung by the long and found and left you something fool proof

That you were there, and I was scared and now there’s no debate

And every players got to play the game that’s why they call it check mate


And now you think about 

The ways you could have changed it

If you only would have seen it coming down

You set your sail up and you took to one direction

But you never turned the stern or the bow


And then he said how,

How do you do?

I guess I’m doing fine

I guess I just thought that you would always be mine

Lyrics

Back Again


Now that I’m on my way

To a place that I have not yet been

On my own two legs,

And with a shallow breath I take it all in


How could you’ve possibly known

That I would run away

How could you think it would always be

An ever after story of true love…


If you would just come back again,

I'd be waiting.

Come back again I’d be here,

With my fingers crossed and I’ll be hoping

That you will find your way back to me


It’s your love that I lack now

And tomorrow's coming fast

So why don’t you cut me some slack

This time we’re going to make it last


With my head hung high,

I let go of my pride,

When I look back

At what we had


So come back again,

I'll be waiting.

Come back again I’ll be here,

With my fingers crossed and I’ll be hoping

That you will find your way back to me


Farther lies, the truth ahead

The longer that we hang our heads

And try to move on from what we were

Life is fine and it loves to line up  

The things we need to get a grip on,

And carry them through within ourselves


So come back again,

I'll be waiting.

Come back again I’d be here,

With my fingers crossed and I’ll be hoping

That you will find your way back to me

Your way to me
