Be The One

I wonder
Why are we involved
With the seasons
And the living of our own
Let me see if nothing's wrong
I just want to be the one

She wanted
You still give her all our lives
Let her be son
Who is she buying?
See her crawl
I'll just make it out

We don't see it bleeding
I want to die with you
Something no ones needing

I left the other day
But you're never here
You only listen to things you want to save
But the power it's ok with you
You knew I'd find something else to do

Let me be the one
(We don't see it bleeding)
I wanna fly, I wanna die with you
Something no ones

See it's not like they
Are gonna take my faith away
Let me in it's ok now
Close the door

Is it really needing?
When you find a place
That's only yours

Just go he beams
Well I've died for good now
Let me feel it
Let her come
Let her run, let her run

Now
Let me be the one
We don't see it bleeding
I can't feel it, I can't see it
Something no ones needing
I feel dumb

Sad Caper

"I know," she said
Before you left me you were free
So I'll just lay me down

Control has left me
And I can't feel another thing
So let me turn around

Do you really want to play these games
Just to keep things going
Or are you ready now to let it be
It's like sometimes you want to see the rain
But the sun gets in your eyes
And you want to die now

Control has left me
And I can't feel another thing
So let me turn around
I see I see
But things just couldn't be the same
So let me hold you down

Never let me down I swore to you
But now I lied
I'm here to make it all seem worth while

You want I know
But I'll have to try
To find a way to make me quiet now

Control has left me
And I can't feel another thing, so let me turn around
I see I see
But things just couldn't be the same
So won't you hunt her down

"I know," she said
Before you left me you were free
So I'll just lay me down

Tucker's Town

Staring back at you
Did you see my lips
Or were you smiling right in front of me

Your father called my name
Then he smiled with great relief
'Cause it wasn't me that you were clinging to

He made you turn around
You do that thing you do
And then you laughed with me

I don't know
What I can't see
I don't know but I'm makin' time to call
I don't know
What I can't see
I don't know but she's watching me leave

Just wish they'd turn around
Just wish they'd try to see
But they don't understand and that's alright with me
I'm leaving now

Going down to Tucker's Town
Where I can lie for free
Nobody stares at me
And I'd love to hurt the population

She called last night
I said I'm about to leave
Then I heard him scream, I'll pack your bags

I don't know
What I can't see
I don't know but I'm makin' time to call
I don't know
What I can't see
I don't know but I'm leaving here

To see the world through your Rosy glasses
I'll teach you to fly but they teach greed
We live the belt but I can bleed

I don't know....
What I can't see....
I don't know
What I can't see

She Crawls Away
I fall in she sees me and smiles
Then she starts to hate herself again
She screams something under her breath
That I wouldn't know if she said it outloud

She turns over to start a conversation
With a man that no one else can see
She dreams of loving me sometimes
And it makes me see what we've been missing

It's like I never knew anyone so strong before
She brings the man outta me
And she makes me see that they don't matter

I believe
We see her playin' with another
She runs around you and then
It's like the sun goes down and she crawls away again

She wears white pants a Miami sweater
Says that She loves the O's
So Uncle Dean will come by

Her smile is like sunshine
Her tears hurt like leather
She runs the show she lets me know
Says it's all about being the only
It's like someone said you could have one good thing in your life
She couldn't be your type
I didn't plan for your smile
But you make me laugh when you stand dreamin'

I believe
We see her layin with another
She runs around you and then
It's like the sun goes down and she crawls away again

Where were you yesterday
Now that my heart is wild and free
And my lips have room to wander
How can I say your needing me now?
When I've got a plan
I know you don't understand
Why my heart is sorry now

I believe
We see her laying with another
She runs around you and then
It's like the sun goes down and she crawls
I believe
We see her waiting with another
She runs around you and then
It's like the sun goes down and she crawls away again

So Strange

It's so hard to breathe right now
Living things without a friend of mine
Air just filling every bit, of every end, of every mind
You thought you could feel

And it's maybe 6 a.m.
And no one wants to be with me
So I'm calling out to someone
And something that I donšt know so well
Ohh, I'm free

If I can't find the warmth in my summer
And I can't find the light in my day
I just look to my friends and we'll see our troubles away
You make me feel so strange

Won't you let me breathe the air
I want to hold on to right now
Won't you let me read a book about
Someone's queen who came back for me

I see bridges in my eyes
I see mornings left for the children
I see people holding back
Trying to find another reason so they can walk away
And it makes me scream and I pray

If you can't find the warmth in my summer
And I can't find the light in my day
I just look to my friends and I'll see our troubles away
You make me feel so

It can never end 'cause we don't speak
It will never just die
So why don't you call the man
And, tell him to come over here and just clean up my pride

If you can't find the warmth in my summer
And I can't find the light in my day
I just look to my friend and we'll see our little troubles away
You make me feel so strange

If you can't find the warmth in my summer
And I can't find the light in my day
I just look to my friend and we'll see our troubles away

Old Man & Me (When I Get To Heaven)

Well an old man said to me
In a voice filled with pain
Where you going young man
Said I'm going to fight a war
Gonna fight for my country
In some foreign land
He said the sun will never hurt you
Never harmed anyone
But you must realize
If you try to stare her down
She will win in the end
She will burn your eyes
She will burn them

Seen a million places
Seen a million faces die
And I wonder who will walk with me
When I get to Heaven

He said boy I was young once
Yeah I was tough
Sailing on Uncle Sam's boat
Hey I could kill the enemy
I could die on foreign streets
But I could not vote
But now you walk by me
You won't talk to me
Say this is my fate
But every time you walk the streets boy
Most of them you meet
You see it's you they hate
It's you...

Seen a million faces
Seen a million places die
And I wonder who will walk with me
When I get to Heaven
I hope I get there

Seen a million places
Seen a million faces die
And I wonder who will walk with me
When I get there

See this woman sitting next to me
She's been there for a long, long time
And when I fell, she picked me up
When I cried, she wiped my tears
I thank God she's mine
And when I leave this world
She won't have anything
But her love for me
'Cause the man took everything else
Made me hate myself
So just let her be boy
Won't you let her be

Seen a million places
Seen a million faces die
Seen a million mothers cry
Seen a million brother dyin'
But I wonder who will walk with me
When I get there

When I get to heaven
I hope I get there
When I get to heaven

Earth Stopped Cold At Dawn

Another reason to doubt me
Another teardrop falls
Can't wait for a friend when loneliness calls
Another kiss in the basement
Pour salt on my tongue
No one cries for heros left unsung

Look at me when I'm talking to you
Look at me in the eyes
Then look away and tell me why... why

Another tasteless movie
Another kiss goodnight
Could be a dark oasis in my life
Another icon smashed to pieces
By yesterday's romance
Another hated person no more chances

Look at me when I'm talking to you
Look at me in the eyes
Then look away and tell me why... why

Playin' with a happy boy
A cold place for a man
Familiar faces in a foreign land

The hands kept spinning around the face
But the earth stopped cold at dawn
For a moment, then moved on
For a moment, then moved on...

Fairweather Johnson

Liked the Steelers in 75
Only like the Broncos when they come alive
Liked the Redskins in 83
When the Dolphins play well
Yeah, they're the team for me
Because I'm Fairweather Johnson
Yeah, yes I'm Fairweather Johnson
Liked the Braves in 95

Honeyscrew

Fly inside
Feel me dealing
Holding on to a story just told
About a man who's the life of a funeral
Grabbing on to a woman who's soul
He just stole for a dream he don't believe in
Now she sits and she yells for a smile
Don't let the sun make me feel lonely
Oh let me in let me in let me in

Is it me?
Or is it honey?

We all seem to hold
To Something we don't see
Is He here
Is He there
Where does He live
Some people say in the pull of a heartbeat
Some people say in the mind of a stranger
I can't explain what it is I believe in
So take your heart take your mind and escape

Is it me?
Or is it honey?
Is it me?
Or is it honey?

Is it me trying to raise your little children
Is it me trying to take your little flame
Why are you trying to steal my judgement day away
Let me scream let me scream let me scream
Don't take it away

Another day in the arms of the real thing
Another day in the eyes of a fool
I called today just to make me feel hopeless
Lie to me and I'll try to believe

Let It Breathe

Could we do it again
If he asked how it felt
And I didn't say this time
You tried to scare me with empty thoughts
That means not a thing
'Cause I'm down behind you
Could we swing it again
If I changed how he looked
And turned to the right to bend
You live with something that I can't explain
But your face cracks a smile when you see it shining

You feel things in your own way
And I'm supposed to lay down and bow to you
I'm tired of bailing hay for something that I can't see
I don't want to be you
You don't want to be me.
Just let it breathe

If the moon goes up tomorrow and I'm down on a farm
And you don't believe whose writing with me
Keep your hands to yourself
Keep your mind to yourself
Keep your breath to yourself
Let me float on by you

You see things in your own way
And I'm supposed to lay down and bow to you
I'm tired of bailing hay for something that I can't see
You don't want to be me
I don't want to be you

It's so very necessary
It's so delectable to see a stone
It's so impossible to find a reason
When you're standing there
Watching me now

Could we live it again
If we dressed just the same
And held on to lovers when
We couldn't really live with anyone
See mostly ourselves so just go on lying

You feel things in your own way
And I'm supposed to lay down and bow to you
I'm tired of bailing hay for someone that I can't see
I don't want to be you
You don't want to be me
Just let it breathe
Let it breathe

Silly Little Pop Song

One thing's for sure
I just can't find the way
To let it seem like all is wrong
Inside my den

Hold back
Breathe easy
She said to me
Go somewhere and change your mind
Just let me sleep

I've been living in a lesson
Please just come inside and listen

Is it anger at life
Or are you happy to be with me
Are you seeing someone

Or will your faith
Go with no other man
Come on
Let me dream

I've been living in a lesson
Please just come inside and listen
No need to worry 'bout all the lying
Please just come inside

It's a thing
To make me want to go
See another
That makes me doubt

I've been living in a lesson
Please just come inside and listen
No need to worry about all the lyin'
All the changing
Please just come inside

I've been living in a lesson
Please just come inside and listen

Fool

Saw you last night
you were sleeping in my mind
Doubting you'll ever be free again
Then I climbed back inside
Someone open my eyes
To find me drunk again
Bonnie on the radio
And she was singing low "Give it up or let me go"
Every night there is one more
Every night there is two more
Saying I shouldn't be feeling this pain
I think I better grow up now or go insane

There's so much I feel
So much I conceal
There's just so many things I can be

Someone write the story of 5 points
No one wanted to know me
Now they all have opinions of what we do
So they go down to Bar None so we can have a drink or two
Can't write a story from the trees
I know somewhere she's watching me
Saying "Boy carry your load"
Oh I don't want to go back on the road now

There's so much I feel
So much I conceal
There's just so many places to see
And faces I can read
There's just so many things I can be

Tootie

You put a rose in my hand
Put a dollar in my pocket
But you don't understand
How the days grow longer, the sky is black as night
I see the morning but you won't see the light

I thought about you for a long, long time
I wrote about you but my words don't seem to rhyme
And now you're lying here
But my heart still beats for you

Had a dream about you
You sat right down beside me
And you told me we were through
It was all so real and you told me reasons why
You brought me to the window
And you taught me how to fly

I thought about you for a long, long time
I said I love you but we just don't have the time
And now you're lying here
But my heart still beats for you

I thought to hold you for a long, long time
You said I love you but my heart won't seem to chime in
And now you're lying here
And my heart still beats for you
I'm trying, and my heart still beats for you

When I'm Lonely

Eyes like an infant
Staring me down
She'll take anything that's tied up
In my glorious past

It's just four days 'til Sunday
When I say that I'm gone
Little one screams you cry
Tell the pain to leave me alone

It's just two days 'til Monday
Another week 'til the fourth
Is anyone listening or
Should I call on the Lord

Sometimes I breathe
Sometimes I see
Then I dream a dream that won't come true
And I struggle with lies when I'm lonely

Someone called my name out loud about four a.m.
It wasn't you so I let her in
Just to see what she wanted
She left screaming because I called her by your name
But the next day she came to call
And we finished our game

Alright now
Some days I breathe
Some days I see
Then I dream a dream that won't come true
And I struggle with time when I'm lonely

Shep plays piano down in
Shandon on the other side of Rosewood
You said he wasn't your type
But you went anyway
You left screamin' cause you thought you would
Call him by my name
Ah and you whisper
Why do I do this
I can't go through this why do I do this, why

Sometimes I breathe
Sometimes I see
Then I dream a dream that won't come true
And I struggle with life when I'm lonely
