Am I The One


Hypnotized and mesmerized and wise enough for blame -
Tell you don't push and shove the lord above
Will love you just the same -
That's what they tell me, to tell you, to scare you into believing -
Some eagle scout sought turnabout and sprouted little wings -
Told you to read the book instead the crook
Got hooked on lesser things -
Tend to your sheep and mold them teach them
Teach them to fend for themselves -
Think about the things you used to do for fun - look to yourself -
Am I the one? I'm not the one - no no no I'm not the one -
The one that you waited for you were created for -
Insolent and reverent lament what praying's for -
Even the atheists and cabalists insist it's nothing more -
Food for the weakling, insect, ducklings,
The ones who can't think for themselves -
Think about the things you used to do for fun - look to yourself -
Am I the one? I'm not the one - love is the real remedy -
Am I the one? The one that you waited for you were created for -
So you want some lord of lords to swoop down
And take you away, your just rewards

The Day You Let Go

 

Lay your body down -
I begged to the moon cause everything around you
Burns in this summer sun -
And I don't want to drink and I don't want to try -
It hurts just to think you know it takes me awhile -
My head's on the blink and I'm feigning a smile -
Baby's on fire, don't wanna know, put out the fire
The day you let go -
Baby's a liar, thinks I don't know, put out the fire
The day you let go -
Got to shake it off I know what you're doing
And you want some real love and now there's love abounding -
I relied on your faith, your faith took a turn -
I relied on your trust, now that bridge has been burned -
I wanna drown in your dust till the memory returns

One Look

 

I stayed awake by your side -
And pushed away the tears I cried
When they said that you might not make it -
They said we'd lost you for awhile you know
Well it's good to see a smile on your face again -
Did you see anything? Did you hear anything?
Could there be anything? Something more to this -
Heard a song sweetly singing to me
Sound familiar though I know I never heard it before -
And a warmth filled me up inside, you were right there
By my side telling me to go -
C'mon child take my hand, let me show you a land
Where there's no fear and no pain
Don't you cry when you hear my name -
Blow a kiss and let me leave and make a promise to believe -
One look, one touch, one word -
I will wait for you, I will be there,
I will welcome you with the rhythm of a smile -
The rhythm of your heart is like heaven in my hands

Feels Like Home

 

I remember you when one were all and all were one
It's all pretty dumb but then remember we were young -
I can see so clear the fall of the twenty-third street woods
We burned it out as long as we could -
Somewhere did it feel like home cradle me I'm home -
I can feel the pain of taking off and crashing down
And flipping around everyone was Evel on your Typhoon -
Has it been that long since we were cool as summertime
And just as hot as New Year's Eve -
Please remember this everything is gone so fast
Tell me now I wanna make it last

China Sky

 

In this world of dreams there's not much it seems
Not much to believe in so believe in me -
You got a heart of gold I pray the hands you hold
May reach out to take you where you ought to be -
Don't get older thinking that you're nowhere
Just think it over and listen to me please baby -
Nobody's gonna' steal your thunder, nobody's gonna' tell you lies
Leave a trail of intentions with you under your pillow -
Nobody's gonna' drag you under, nobody's gonna' shoot you down
Not as long as there's an angel watching over your china sky -
Your friends may wish you well it's so hard to tell
Just say you know me, say you know me well -
Don't matter where you go, it's not how far you know
Cause nothing can hold me no high no low -
And if the world comes crashing on your shoulders
You'll hear my whispers ringing in your ears baby -
Close your eyes don't worry about tomorrow
I'll be beside you listen to me

Lay Me Down

 

Bless me Father I've awakened to those dreams again
And I feel like some angel's pulled a trigger in me, the worst in me -
Clash of color black and white all run together in red
Now I'm here with the gun in my hands -
Where's the dream that you said we'd find someday -
When I lay me down I miss the happy endings
The ever afters when I lay me down I shiver that they never may come -
Brittle fingers sketch the memory of a smile on your somber face -
We'll try again I know one day to return your sweet embrace -
Never thought you would ever find me there well I'm there -
Don't follow me down

Overnight Sensation

 

You got some trouble with your rock and roll lover
You left your sister by the backstage door -
Who tucked you in who put you under the covers
What left you crying leaves you begging what you waiting for -
I must admit you could've been a little more patient
I must admit you could've been a little more kind -
You've done your damage now would you let me down easy -
You had to make it hard why'd you make it hard
Let's turn this thing into something good -
Sun's coming up crawl into bed with me
Start warming up to something that's real -
Sun's coming up crawl into bed with me
Start warming up to this overnight sensation -
You got your money tuck it in your tight blue jeans
You make your meeting and your ballet routine -
But something's missing hidden under the covers
When you notice where's your Ballanchine -
You said nobody could ever touch you like he did
But baby don't you know there's more than one way to touch -
You've done your damage now won't you let me down easy -
You had to make it hard why'd you make it hard
And turh this things into something good -
There's something strange in your coffee this morning
There's something different in your kisses good night -
Refuse the blame when you bring it up baby
And bring it home to me when darkness falls and shadows speak -
Why'd you make it so hard
