Rachael: For showing me what its like to really love

`Maybe this song is too simple

Maybe my love seems too much
But with you there is no middle
And our lives so close together
I swear our hearts they almost touch
Today it feels no different
I was yours right from the start
But my heart you stole it somewhere you’ve unlocked my love within
Rachael you can be my sin
My life within
And every time you think that we could break
Or crumble at the seams
Please know that you’re my everything
This love is our foundation
Please put you’re trust in me
And you will see
Rachael we can be together
Take me with you when you can
And rachie we can conquer everything
Our love is right it strengthens me
Please always hold my hand
Now when your world is dark and gray
Please look to me for strength
I’ll alwAys be here waiting
Don’t you ever feel abandoned
You will never be alone
Your eyes are always beautiful
On these nights they guide my way
Let all the miles unfold
Let the roAds collide between us
And tumble to the sea
Your grace will always save me
I’ve known it from the start
You are the light to all my hopeless
You are the only remedy
Rachael I’ll keep your loving heart
Now Rachael I believe in you and me
We can make this love our life
And when the world it comes down crashing you and me will still be  standing
Our eyes, out hearts, our souls interlocked and interwoven
I will always be your home

Pour Out Secrets

Rain clouds the stars from above
Pour out secrets, come undone
Sunshine lightens the way
Sunshine’s her smile on the darkest day

Inhale, exhale for me
Take a shot of this high life fantasy
Straight up dance to the symphony
Alive feel your hearts own dexterity

Smoke rises, the blood pumps in your veins
Eyes close, really what remains?
Sing out, sing out your ecstasy
Raise it, your life’s mediocrity

Inhale, exhale for me
Take a shot of this high life fantasy
Straight up dance to the symphony
Alive feel your hearts own dexterity

No melody soothing
No harmony moving
No darkness swinging to the rhythm of this strange new conformity

Reach out, live for another
Run now, run out forever
Flow down, water is falling
Flow down, flow now your cunning
Secrets, set you free

Purple Skies

Purple skies
Make velvet lies
Softly touching
All encompassing

There’s no shelter
Hide from the weather
Weather our lives
Encounter the skies
whether the stars
Refuse to shine
Or rise so bright
To give forgiving light
That bends, that lengthens
That slows the forsaken
brother, the mistaken mother
Float onto nothing,
purple now disgusting,
swimming in the gray
The skies fade away
Bring on the thunder
Drown in the wonder
Live Unforgiven
Forgive the unliving

Paul Played Guitar

Paul played guitar
John raised the bar
For every other runner in our school
Steve got it right
gave us a fright
That night he jumped the rail and stormed the field
I wasted time
In my future life
Dreaming bout the days that never were

And now the years pass by
So don’t ask why
I just

Need to start living
Keep on forgivin
Before its gone and were out of time
How could 12 whole years pass by without another day?
Well hold on tight
You’re doing me right
The world gonna pass us by
So Grab my hand
close your eyes
Baby enjoy the ride

It was that summer when
I started giving in
She had this pretty little smile I’ll never forget
We were out one night
God i was feeling right
Rolling in the grass all over her

Paul took a bow
As he wowed the crowd
That girl was sitting in the front row
Now he’s giving in
Not thinking when
That girl slipped him something to think about

And while me and her were kissing
Paul was wishing that we would never grow up
he said…

I Need to start living
Keep on forgivin
Before its gone and were out of time
How could 12 whole years pass by without another day?
Well hold on tight
You’re doing me right
The world gonna pass us by
So Grab my hand
close your eyes
Baby enjoy the ride

Now everything’s changing
The world keeps phasing
Till there’s nothing left there to surprise
It took 12 whole years to learn to enjoy the ride
Now comes goodbye

Paul plans his life
Hopes to have a wife
John lives each moment as they come his way
Steve gives it all
Won’t drop the ball
For anyone or anyway
Now I’m looking at
the aftermath
Of what I was and who I am

And although it’s frightening,
It’s still exciting to think that tomorrow’s another day

Need to start living
Keep on forgivin
Before its gone and were out of time
How could 12 whole years pass by without another day?
Well hold on tight
You’re doing me right
The world gonna pass us by
So Grab my hand
close your eyes
Baby enjoy the ride

Fleeting

You lie in your bed
And you cant sleep, it’s frightening
You hear a voice and you think
Dear god what am I becoming?

You leave the house quite basely
And you can’t believe what’s waiting
You slide the door closed gently
And compose yourself so slightly

You move so quickly
Your thoughts are rushing
Your heart is pounding
You’re spirit drowning

And ooooo you’re changing
Now you’re everything you thought you’d never be
You’re racing time on the other side of good but you don’t see
Nothing is forever, but this is everything to me

The cold air tingles your face
You find you’ve quickened your pace
Your body’s numb, your mind is fried
but still you have a thousand alibis

You slip into the covers
And lie awake so freely
You search your conscience deeply
But your beliefs they seem so fleeting

And ooooo you’re changing
Now you’re everything you thought you’d never be
You’re racing time on the other side of good but you don’t see
Nothing is forever, but this is everything to me

Now you’re crying out
You’re giving In
You feel a rush under your skin
You can’t give up
Youre blacking out
Who will ever help you now?

The stillness moves with all thats nestled
Your fears, your lies, your sins so gentle
Now you’re settled but you just can’t wait for this to pass,
embrace the pain and hope it lasts

Time

The clock spins faster than my mind can
Sun sets, everything is on track
Our lives flying with the time
But not to say goodbye

Time flies, your every little motion
Pulls me, your love is my devotion
Eyes closed, hands in the air
Feel how much I care
Stay and see
I’m your simple melody

Lately

Lately I have been thinking bout you
The clouds shade the world from a darker blue
Lately I have been thinking that we could simply start all over on the other side but believe me when I say I’m a different guy

And there’s a sunset burning through my window and out side there is a world that I can’t handle
Tonight I’m not thinking bout tomorrow or the things I have to do I’m thinking bout you

Your smile, and the way you hang your hair down makes me smile too
Your eyes, shine like diamonds that reflect the stirring revelations of your soul

And there’s a sunset burning through my window and out side there is a works that I can’t handle
Tonight I’m no thinking bout tomorrow or the things I have to do I’m thinking bout you

And I believe that what I’m feeling is real, lasting and true, an indelible imprint on me and you
But maybe we could take it back
Simplify this equation like a code to crack

Lately I have been thinking bout you

And there’s a sunset burning through my window and out side there is a works that I can’t handle
Tonight I’m no thinking bout tomorrow or the things I have to do I’m thinking bout you

Second Rate Soldier

I’ve got another heartache 
That’s brought me to
My knees 
I’m right back where I started
searching for me 

And maybe there’s something I just cant find 
Maybe my love is just an alibi 
But I know what I’ve got and I know what I need to be
Baby I’m free 

Well I’m sick and tired 
of feeling like a second rate soldier 
whose lost his cause, 
fighting for some composure 
Indifferent to the pain 
That we all concede 
To be part of this life, 
an indefinite creed  
Well honey I’ll pay the cost 
I’ll play your game 

And maybe there’s something that we all can find 
Locked away somewhere deep inside 
My hands
My knees 
My souls bleeds 
To be 
Free 

Hands up 
Stand up 
Fight for what you need 
Lay it all 
Take the fall
Watch me as I bleed 

Your eyes burn bright like a beacon of light 
On the coast of the see on a stormy night  
The stars and the moon and the sun and the sky
Are filled with this most sacred lie 

But still maybe there’s something I just can’t deny
Maybe there’s something burning in our lives 
A fire that’s burning deep
 in me that screams 
Love is free 

Have You Ever Had the Feeling

Have you ever had the feeling that this life is just a motion? Have you ever had the sense that we’re drifting in devotion to the current of our soul’s stirrings in the sea without a meaning? Well there’s a reason we all hold on.

Have you ever spent the evening in the presence of the angels? Have you ever seen the heavens or truly are you able to know beauty in it’s purest form? Well you know well the blind can’t fly.

Have you ever felt the coldness in the deepest of the winter? Have you eve felt the heat as it burns and as it hinders the strong to move slow? Well I don’t know what life is for, but don’t you know that I know you?

Have you ever had the feeling that your life is in slow motion? That you’re standing on the border of what could be a sweet devotion? Could the riddle of my purpose be the meaning of my existence? Well could the answer have always been you? Have you ever had the feeling…
