I remember we were on fire/ A burning love our hearts desired/
I'm moving away/ chasing desert rain/ I'm looking for the place that love grows from washed away pain/
He's crowded by the empty space/ rushed by the sound of wind/ yeah he's running keep running my friend
The fruits of my spirit had dried/ the sands of my life had left a desert in my soul/
Hey.. ol crow/ circling over me/ searching my soul
I know it's so hard to/ open your dreams to anyone/ just know I'll fly with you/ above all that's under the sun/ because you lift me up/ oh.. you lift me up
If I meet you in a dream will you lift me up/ to carry me in the stream of life filled with love
Free the version of you trapped inside/ open your heart and let it fly/ so let your love scream
So let us dream/ let our spirits fly so spread our wings/ oh let us dream
The softest whisper can lift you up/ lift your spirits and fill your cup/ when we dare to dream
Everyone slips and they fall/ just because you're down doesn't mean that's all/ ohh.. just answer the call..
Then no storm can be too great, with each drop washing out the hate,
Spare a moment and take the lead Your act of kindness may be all they need
Care isn't given free, there's sacrifices that we don't see
Just lean on me and I'll lean back to you, everyone's a little broken and what we see isn't always true
We can never fill the void deep within our souls Only pretending to love when our hearts are so cold
If words filled empty spaces I'd say we've gone too long I hope you listen to my heart and it beats the perfect tone
We'll take it step by step until we gain back some traction/ then a heartbeat movement causin' a chain reaction/
But I gotta keep on steppin' as if I'm gainin' ground/ 'cause when the beatboxin' begins two moves in we're gettin' down
We're turn'n up, max'n out vibes/ Kick back n let the emotion drive
Then we piece back what's broken
It's time to take a stand
What we're so afraid of...
We're in a time where everything changes/ the toll it takes is on everyone's faces/
And when our hearts, are chaos/ let 'em be courageous/
When it gets tough, and faithless/ let it be courageous/ (or just "be courageous")
Be a little courageous/ when love seem so blinded/ a little more contagious/ when show'n some kindness/ oh.. don't be afraid.. to be contagious
Isn't it contagious/ love and kindness/ it'll be what saves us/
I remember when things were contagious/ you were so courageous/ to spread it faster than the media/ bringing home chlamydia... (just a terribly totally worth it bad joke)
If I Could Heal Your The World
Inside These Walls (or "Outside These Walls)
Then we dance with our souls and we change fear to bold/ we're embracing and raising the bar
And though we chase our tears we face our fears/ 'cause in the midst of horror we find strength to borrow/ the moments that get us through.. we carry on with stolen moments
And we choose to go on in the midst of what's wrong/ In that moment we'll own it , a stolen moment
We hear the cries of our souls to embark the ties to our goals now the end doesn't seem so far
The pit of our souls emerges from the cold facing a resistance, a light in the distance
Then the windows of our souls recieve light from the cold, but there's resistance, hope at a distance
That emotional monster in the back of my mind/ who stresses and test me time after time
So I'll love much deeper, live life worth keep'n
Let's just love much deeper, what we have worth keep'n
Of all the love I haven't seen/ if I open my door and let my heart soar, could it mend everything broken
That yesterday's behind me/ there's no tomorrow to show just you here to hold, all I need is right now
That it could be my last beat/ and don't worry for tomorrow there's no time to borrow when we've spent all we have
To put the past behind me/ and tomorrow's not here so I can't look there, all I have is what I have now
Letting go of sorrows.. life is short
I'm forgetting tomorrow.. 'cause life is short
A heart loves forever.. but life is short
(and) love like there's no tomorrow..
and make today the best day..
'Cause tomorrow is lost.. when life is short
Tomorrow's slipping away..
With no worries for tomorrow..
It's the one fight we just can't win...
Living too fast in the past is gone..
Now I can cross that bridge..
Embracing every moment.. 'cause life is short
Time will close the distance..
Memories last forever.. but life is short
Holding on to moments that leads with a kiss
Not play it so safe and take a few more risk
I'll spend a few more seconds on every kiss
Take back my life and pursue my happiness
Holding hands in public leaning in to kiss
I still have dreams to chase, I'll find another way. 'Cause the sand is gone but these hands I own, there's nothing stopping me now.
All the time we spend running/ we're wasting away our chance to walk/
Breathing comes easy/ but livin' moves fast/
I've tried too hard/ to get you to see/ I've tried too long/ it's wearing on me/ now you're on your on/ to come along in time/ 'cause I'm never gonna change your mind..
No I can't hold my tongue/ So it slips a little/ I'm not the one/ to run and hide/ When you need it/ but no matter what I try.. I'm never gonna change your mind..
You can live in fear/ live in power/ just cast down your tears/ 'cause fear is a liar.. (doesn't really go with the song in progress.. just thought I'd share it)
Well it's a step by step/ and I've got you walk'n/ take my help/ you're falling behind/ I point and lead/ I could draw a perfect line... but I'm never gonna change your mind..
We could get a-lone/ have Thanksgiving dinner/
Falling deep in thought/ you're seeing the signs/ you can't tear apart/
It's a little spark/ revealing insight/ the beginning of/
There's a little spark/ flaring up tonight/ warming to the thought/ Of the notion..
There's a little spark/ of believing in time/ what sets us apart
It sticks like a dart/ and travels through time/ no it's not too far
That's where it all starts/ showing through your eyes/ It's playing it's part/ In the notion..
You’re torn all apart/ you keep it inside/ misery and dark/
You're torn all apart/ you keep it inside/ playing like a harp/
There's a little spark/ turning to a light/ shining on the mark/ ..it's the notion...
The lines I've trace/ Keep'n your mind sober/ I'm standing in faith/ Hope'n it'll shine/ Running the race/ Getting closer to the line/ but I'm never gonna change your mind../ Still I try try try..
I try to pull when you push away/ I try to stand and you push me down/
This rift between us has to mend/ I laid the first stitch what's your move/
So where do we go from here/ we can try again over lunch/ how about few rounds of beer/ I'll getcha when you've had too much/
So where do we go from here/ we can try again over lunch
1 2 3 4 5 6 7/ seconds left 'til you see heaven/ (although this is just for fun.. it's something my wife would say to me) ?
Someday I'm gonna get through to you/ These losses are just dues I pay/
Yeah I gotta, hit you where you'll listen/ can I getcha, to pay more attention/ I'mma reach'a, I swear it'll work this time... or I'm never gonna change your mind..
I could reach out and come a little closer/ or step back and move a little further/ but nothing ever seems enough this time.. 'cause I'm never gonna change your mind
I can.. take a deep breath, pretend that I’m wrong/ or work this out, and act like we’re grown/ so just tell me, what's it gonna take this time../ I'm.. never gonna change your mind
I wish you’d hear, the words that I share/ I wish you’d see, the love given by me/ what's inside, blocking me to where I'm... never gonna change your mind..
I wish you'd hear, the words that I share/ I wish you'd see, the love given by me/
All for nothing, 'cause in the end I'm.. never gonna change your mind
I can.. take a deep breath, pretend that I'm wrong/ or work this out, and act like we're grown
Would it matter, if I gave my life/ or would I find, it doesn't matter 'cause I'm... never gonna change your
I could reach out and come a little closer/ or step back and move a little further
Well I can scream all day, and give you what you want/ Or fold and say, everything that's a lie/ Well I won't, and I guess this Is how I'm… never gonna change your mind
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ and I can never change the way you feel
I'm never gonna change your mind/ eventhough the sun rises it still turns dark..
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ No matter how we feel it's still the same
We'll I'm never gonna change your mind/ It's just a plea so that we can agree
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ just following footprints you left for me
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ but why do we have to be so torn apart
Well you're never gonna change my mind/ your world isn't the same as mine
We'll I'm never gonna change your mind/ I can at least say that I've tried
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ just following footprints back in time
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ and I never wanna waste your time
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ I hope some day we could spend more time
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ but you better believe I gonna try
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ and if I do it'll be alright
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ And that's something in common we've got/ but just a chance and minute in time/ I feel that everything'll be alright
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ wouldn't change the world if I did/ but it doesn’t mean I’m wasting time/ just tired of being so divided..
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ would it change the world if I could/ And It could even be me that's blind/ So here's to thinking that I should
Well I’m never gonna change your mind/ There’s one thing in common we’ve got/ If only you could see in mine/ Then maybe we could end this fight
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ There's one thing in common we've got
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ would it change the world if I could..
Well I'm never gonna change your mind/ but I love you enough to try
I'm never gonna change your mind/ it could even be me that's blind
Well I can never change your mind/ but if only you could see in mine
(TITLE/HOOK IDEA) - A Picture To See
Well I can never change your mind/ it doesn't mean I'm wasting time..
Yeah lov'n on time we borrowed/ and lost tomorrow
You showed me a few good times/ new ways of life
You taught me new goodbyes/ new ways of life
You taught me to live my life/ and say goodbye
You showed me how to live/ and relive
If I could do it again/ we'd do it again
I'll be the better man/ made by your hand
Eventhough you shook me/ you hooked me
It made a better me/ that you didn't see
Someday it'll make sense/ at our expense
You made a better me/ you better believe/ ..there ain't..
If I would change one thing/ maybe the sting
A lesson that'll last/ learned so fast
Eventhough we failed the test/ you're still the best
Girl I'm shaken, yeah I'm taken/ to a place I've never been
Girl you changed me, to a better me/ now I can love with more to give
Now a new picture, we've moved on/ but I can never be the same/
Love'n was a game, until I met you/ now it'll never ever be the same/
I must be tripp'n, 'cause I see you/ everytime that I go out
I don't remember, where it went wrong/ but nothing ever felt so right
There ain't a touch we didn't believe in
Long walks, hanging out n chill'n
It's the start of a heart long memory
Loving you was just like breathing
Made a mistake with wrong hole drilling ?? (No don't do that.. just a terribly totally worth it bad joke!)
No mistake on hearts worth stealing
Wouldn't break a heart worth stealing/ but yeah....
It won't break a heart worth stealing
Gets you higher than a rich man's ceiling
It leaves a mark that ain't never leaving
I didn't wanna say goodbye/ but every fire burns out in time/ but there ain't...
That night by the creek is a memory I'll keep/ it was just right for the first of many kisses I miss
Gotta little close, a lotta hot we burned out/ hell we didn't know, how to fuel a flame it turns out
It was just a field of play it turns out/ you were just a weed I wanted to burn out
We took off running 'bout ninety/ no worries on what might be
Not too sure about the direction of this song anymore
And I miss everything we had girl/ but this is where we start our own worlds / you may not be in mine/that'll change in time/ 'cause there ain't..
And I miss everything we had girl/ but this is where we start our own worlds
Half a chance I'd put you back in my world/ Tie a knot that can't be untangled..
Even the one I missed come'n in too fast girl/ I'd do it again just to see that laugh girl
If I could I'd put you back in my world/ I'd change face to keep place at last girl
Not a moment I let pass girl/ I wouldn't trade'em for the world..
Not a moment I let pass girl/ You're in the middle of my world..
There ain't a moment we had, I'll let pass/ no there ain't..
There ain't a moment we had/ I let pass ..away no there ain't...
If I could I would take away, the pain n the games/ but there ain't..
Girl I wish we could see, that we're meant to be/ there ain't..
Girl I wish we could see, our love is meant to be/ there ain't..
You're so hard to get over, broken heart move over/ 'cause there ain't..
We had some of the best days, in many ways/ there ain't..
Girl I gotta say, if I had another day/ there ain't..
You'll always be, the best part of me/ There ain't..
You created a part of me, I've never seen/ there ain't..
I think of you all the time, when you were mine/ there ain't..
You really were something/ and I'm telling you honey/ there ain't..
There ain't a day I didn't want to spend (with you) / There ain't a night I wanted to end (it's true)..
There ain't a day I didn't want to spend (with you)/ there ain't a night I didn't want to end (its true)..
There ain't a moment/ I didn't want to last..
There's ain't a moment, I didn't want to last/ There ain't one kiss I'd wanna take back..
Girl from the first to last/ there ain't one kiss I'd wanna take back..
Girl I'm just passing time/ remembering when you were mine
Girl whenever I find the time/ just to remember when you were mine
That was just a moment, before that first kiss / Would seal what wouldn’t last.
