About Me

I’m a Kerrville New Folk finalist (many years back). I love song writing, it’s a calming thing to do. I’ve been writing songs since I was 9. I remember my first song, it was really a terrible thing. I hope I’m better at it now. I love all music, primarily singer/songwriter stuff, but I really will listen to anything for awhile. This site has restored my faith in songwriting. Lots of great folks with great talent and great ideas. People seem willing to share their insight and thoughts. I like that. Let’s write some tunes!

Lyric by keithcurtis:

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"I love how "another day in silence" fits in there...it is a partial sentence that doesn't attach ...yes you could say "the sun goes down another day in silence" but what you really mean is "the sun goes down on another day in silence" and squishing in the "on" pulls the seams of the melody....try a bunch of options that set that great second line up to be a full sentence:

I can't live another day in silence
I can't spend another day in silence
etc.

Also it's stronger not to speak for the other person. You don't have to tell someone what they're doing "we're not knocked down"...if they are there they already know that...it's alway stronger to tell me about your experience and especially if you're addressing that other person you are better off telling them your experience rather than explaining their reality."

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"The sun goes down/ Another day in silence/ We’re not knocked down/ Resting awhile/ I believe/ In pushin’ ‘til we make it right/ But I’m never gonna change your mind."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"we've used "door" and "war"...need totally fresh words and rhymes (except for the "I" rhyme to go with the hook! "

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"I could slam the door/ Walk away in anger/ I don’t need war/ Just a fair fight/ There’s no chance/ I’ve never seen a single sign/ And I’m never gonna change your mind."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"these lines really sing well but I want to point out that when you refer to something but don't finish the thought it can make a lyric vague. so here are my questions based on this verse:

I could stand my ground (over what?)
Trying to get an answer (to what?)
Turn out the lights/will you try (try what?)
give me a single sign (about what?)

See...many unanswered questions! "

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"I could stand my ground/ Tryin’ to get an answer/ Or back right down/ Turn out the lights/ Will you try/ Give me just a single sign/ I’m never gonna change your mind."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"Like the positivity in this one!"

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"I can take your hand/ Lead you to the answer/ That was my plan/ No you can’t hide/ Hope can live/ Even in the darkest night/ But I’m never gonna change your mind."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

""you've got a lot of things you hide"....this is vague and makes me want to know...what things? Sometimes the tiniest specific thing is better than infering about any number of things....

"everybody has to take a side" ...but refering to what? Just needing a little more specifics...

A lot of your lines are close...just not completely focused so that at the end of the verse I feel one clear thought has been communicated.

Here's an example of one way I'd focus that in using some of your phrases:

"Looking at the world today
We're living in the great divide
Buried in the words we say
It's hard to see the other side"

This above is still me talking to one other person...but it also feels inclusive of the world in general. But what makes it work is the last 2 lines could be talking about just 2 people as well as the whole world.

Also look how many less syllables!!

"

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"Lookin’ at the world today/ (Feels like) Everybody has to take a side/ I listen to the words you say/ (And) I know you’ve got a lot of things you hide. (“Feels like” may be too rushed even as passing words) (“Lookin’ at” could be “Livin’ in”) (Resubmit with edits from Beth’s input)"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"Love first line.... and "looking at the world today"!!

start it with Looking at the world today and see where that leads!

"

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"I listen to the words you say/ Guess I need to make another plan/ And lookin’ at the world today/ Theres nothin’ that would change the place you stand."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"like the start of this....but I don't know the story?? what is it about living through hard times?"

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"We’re livin through some real hard times/ All we need is just a little spark/ (But)while we’re livin’ in it we stay blind/ Need a shinin’ light to guide us through the dark."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"LOVE the first line...as well as "spark" but we've used "heart" and middle. the we we we is not as strong as the I I I! tell me about you not me or we!"

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"We’re livin through some real hard times/ All we need is just a little spark/ But in the middle of it we’re all blind/ ‘Til we see a light come shinin’ through the dark."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"a way inside what?
push through what?
stopped trying what?
LOVE the last line!

I'm putting you through the fine seive Keith! Cause you can take it! 🤩"

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"If I ever find a way inside/ I’ll move until I push right through/ You can never say that I stopped tryin’/ ‘Cause nothin’ could be further from the truth."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"that's "sieve" "

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"If I ever find a way inside/ I’ll move until I push right through/ You can never say that I stopped tryin’/ ‘Cause nothin’ could be further from the truth."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"You took the words right out of my mouth Keith! yes.. "pride" is used up! LOVE all these comments. I have no problem with entering forgiveness into this...but what is the movie???? what is happening in this new verse that's fresh and moves us forward? I'm still looking for that! Great stuff bubbling up though!"

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"I’m always on the other side/ Hopin’ for a better way to live/ Well there’s nothin’ in the world like pride/ (But) it’s never gonna stop the word forgive."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

""standing in a cold hard wind" sings perfecto!

what happens if the verse starts with "I'm standing at the edge of -"?
I'm standing in the cold hard fire
(doesn't make sense but like something about bringing paradox in?)

"

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"You’ve never been the one to bend/ You tell me that there isn’t any way/ So you’re standin’ in a cold hard wind/ And you’re hopin’ that I’ll head the other way."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"REALLY like "you've never" starting this next verse cause it's the reverse of "I'm never" and can lead to new fresh stuff....
"the one to move" feels too hanging...move what? move where? it leaves too many question....

try a bunch of other endings to that start of the first line...

here are some starts:

you've never understood my -
you've never even asked - -
you've never held a - - -
you've never made me - - -
you've always made me - - -

I also like "hurricane".... and "hurricane wind""

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"You’ve never been the one to move/ (1/4 note rest) Even in a hurricane wind/ And you’ll tell me that I can’t undo/ Anything that pushed us to the end."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"love those first two lines...but thinking I might save them for the bridge...."

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"I can see your light/Shinin’ through the darkness/I don’t need a fight/(But)I’ll never hide/I can give everything I have that’s mine/But I’m never gonna change your mind."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"Good stuff! this first half carries the story forward really well...

when you say "if" you open a can of worms.

Not as much a fan of telling them they're blind...doesn't serve the song as strong to me.

"

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"And if I keep your heart/Backed into a corner/The tears you start/Are over the line/Tears won’t change all the times you’ve been so blind/I’m never gonna change your mind."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"backed into a corner...good one!"

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"And if I keep your heart/Backed into a corner/The tears you start/Are over the line/Tears won’t change the times that you’ve been so blind/And I’m never gonna change your mind."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

""Tell you" face to face is 2 too many syllables for the pure melody. I know you can squeeze them in. The challenge is to do it in 3 syllables if possible...or if you add 2 little ones on the front it has to "sing"..."tell you" is cumbersome...here's an example of 2 little lead in syllables that sing more naturally:

(I'm not suggesting this a final version but notice the ease of phrasing)

And we're face to face
Cause it's face to face
Maybe face to face

Hope that helps!

LOVE "hope can live....."

but it might be even IN the worst of times?"

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"I could state my case/Try to win you over/Tell you face to face/Say it so fine/ Hope can live even at the worst of times/Though I’m never gonna change your mind."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"Remember we've used "IN THE MIDDLE" so I'd say:

Hope can live
Even in the worst of times
or
Even in the darkest night


"

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"I could state my case/Try to win you over/Tell you face to face/Say it so fine/ Hope can live in the middle of the worst of times/Though I’m never gonna change your mind."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"Better as far as the rhyme but MINE & MIND are a bit too close...."

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"I could state my case/Try to win you over/Tell you face to face/Say it so fine/ Hope can live right between what’s yours and mine/Though I’m never gonna change your mind."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"this is really close keith! I notice you keep ending the second to the last line with "ooo"....it should be an "I" rhyme to go with mind! ;)"

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"I could hold you tight/Try to win you over/Or face the fight, and/Try to be kind/ Can’t believe there’s somethin’ my love can’t do/I’m never gonna change your mind."

"first two lines great!

Lyric by keithcurtis:

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"Hmmmm....LOVE "Back into a corner"

BACKED into a corner...

"Well I can keep your heart
Backed into a corner"

"And when you get my heart
Backed into a corner"
the tears that start....
spill over the line

keep it going!

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"I could give up ground/ Back into a corner/ Never make a sound/ Avoid every fight/ Life like that only tears us apart/ And I’m never gonna change your mind."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"ahhhh...possible great third line...

"hope can live somewhere in between the lines"... But I'm never gonna change your mind.

it needs to rhyme there! LOVE Hope can live!! what a great diving board phrase! "

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"I could state my case/ Try to win you over/ Tell you face to face/ Say it so fine/ Hope can live somewhere in that middle ground/ Though I’m never gonna change your mind."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"The first phrase needs to be a complete thought...it's straddling and hanging off the cliff til the second line...would be stronger to have each phrase make sense on their own even if they connect!

But the next lines are working great...

Oh I see in the comments where you greatly improved it...but where you have "through" you need an "I" rhyme!"

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"I could hand in hand/ Walk you to the answers/ Take my stand/ Show you the signs/ But when the day is done it’s a battle I’m bound to lose/ ‘Cause I’m never gonna change your mind."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"Great second line...notice how much easier it is to sing the first line like this with the melody...it's the little things:

So if you think you're right
Who am I to tell you

Then the next two lines should stand on their own and not be the last half of a long sentence.

You can also say:

If you believe you're right
who am I to tell you

but I prefer how "think" snaps on that melody with more percussion. If you listen to the great motown songs and many many hits this is the special sauce...singability!!!"

(more)
Lyric by keithcurtis:

"You believe you’re right/ Who am I to tell you/ That I’m so bright/ My reasons all shine/ But face to face I can see by the look in your eyes/ I’m never gonna change you mind."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on keithcurtis' lyric:

"Like what this is saying...it just needs to fit the melody a little better. Play around with a bunch of options getting this idea across in the second line.

...something that says " all the pretty word in the world still wouldn't change your mind"

that's a cool thing to say in the second line!

But it has to "sing" effortlessly with the melody...!!


"

Lyric by keithcurtis:

"Well I’m never gonna change your mind/doesn’t matter what beautiful words I use."

My Lyrics

  • Darden Smith for SW:S
  • The Great Gary Lucas
  • Marti Dodson
  • Beth Nielsen Chapman
I wake up in the morning, and I’m nowhere close to home/ But I know those sleeping silent there are safe from distant harm.
If this heart could speak, the stories it could tell/ The silence can be broken, only love can break the spell.
Will we ever be the same, does it even matter, Let’s grow from where we stand right now, Like seeds that someone scattered.
The silent wall around you will crumble to the ground/ I believe together we will watch it tumble down.
There’s a hope that’s locked inside the dream that haunts you every night/ Let it go and bring it home, together we’re alright.
When the world is on your shoulders, and the pain is locked inside/ We’re in this together these arms are open wide.
Every time I pass you by I wonder what went wrong/ We’re you driven here by demons that held you down too long?
I’ll be here to hold you, when you get back home/ Try to help you carry what you brought back in your soul.
How wide are your shoulders, how much can they hold/ I’ll never be as strong as you, never half as bold.

No comments

There’s a river running through our lives, right now you’re on the other side/ But when it crests and then recedes, I’ll reach you through the deepest reeds.
Where you stand, a foreign land, you face down every fear/ It’s not the end of the earth but you can see the edge from here.
The morning sun will lift you, give you hope and light the sky/ Love is wrapped around you, don’t ever question why.
When the darkness falls around you, and you wait to see the sun/ Close your eyes and rest until the night has finally gone.
Where the sun meets the horizon, that’s where your day will start/ So I look in that direction, out my window ‘til it’s dark.
I try to find the silence, but the silence never comes/ Out on the horizon I hear pounding distant drums.
When it’s too dark to see or the daylight blinds your eyes/ When the burden that you carry is too much for your life.
Darkness dropped its hold, chased away the cold, in it’s place, a warm soft embrace.
A soft lovers verse, warms the soul when nothing works, the chill is quickly replaced.
Even in the light, when the sun chases night, we’re looking for a safer place to stay.
Now we’re free just to be, to follow every dream, to fly through the sky far away.
Dreams push the night, to the ground, to the light, then we run to the sun and it’s grace.
There’s hope in the light, that fights away the night, it’s blinding, we’re finding our way.
A trip around the sun, another year is gone, we’re older and bolder today.
Coming storms won’t stop us, nothing here can drop us, no hiding, we’re fighting to stay.
Angels greet the dawn, the night has come and gone, hear their wings as they fly far away.
The night can make a mark, but we rise out of the dark, out the window, all the shadows fly away.
There’s beauty in the soul, and love is still the goal, keeps us moving to the light not far away.
There’s a key in our hands, doors open then we stand, staring at the souls that came before.
I hear the lovers cry, the echo and the sigh, waiting for the freedom bathed in hope.

No comments

There’s beauty in the soul, it’s there to keep us whole, keep us moving to the light not far away.
Can we steal time we lost, if we can what’s the cost, should we pay it or delay it for awhile.
When the chill of the night, gives a nod to the light, it’s just passing and flashing a smile.
When darkness goes away, sunlight makes its way, to your window, ice and shadows fly away.
Angels greet the dawn, the night has flown and gone, hear their wings as they sing to the sun.
When the love comes in waves, it holds us up and saves, the sweetness completeness of life.
When our heart finds the song, it covers all the wrong, that’s been hiding, dividing our soul.
Our souls look for hope, sometimes we’re grasping smoke, then it’s shining and blinding and bright.
In a dream we can fly through clouds that fill the sky, without limits we’re in it and free.
As we fly through the day there’s a hidden place we stay, where the sunlight and twilight combine.
While we’re stunned at the sight of a day of delight, never waste it just taste it, enjoy.
Now we have a view, beyond the hopeless ache, that takes away our silent dreams and keeps us wide awake.
Time is rolling by me I can feel the brush of air, I’d love to slow it down but I don’t even have a prayer.
We hurry not to wait, to see the golden fountain, then fight our way through hell to reach the summit of the mountain.
Sleeping ‘til the sunlight, flies in through the window, through the room and down the stairs, chasing all the shadows.
Our passion takes no prisoners, fights through any battle, never breaks or falls away, nothing here is fragile.
The clock will never stop, our lives are tied to time, we hope to beat the end but there’s no stepping out of line.
We get locked inside our dreams and there’s no way through the door, forced to fight or break away or crawl across the floor.
We have a heart that’s broken, frozen here in time, in between the dark and light that make up every single life.
There’s hope in every loss, life in every death, the moon would disappear without the sun to give it breath.
Like fire always follows smoke, dust and wind are often friends, sleep can lead us into dreams, beginnings into ends.
Beggars get to choose, and time has stopped it’s flying, there’s plenty left to lose, and there’s always time for crying.
This aching endless night, won’t dash the hope of morning, ride the wave, and look ahead ignore the midnight warning.
Shadows find the corners, hidden never frozen, move like quiet thieves until the dawn has finally broken.
Whispers soothe the soul, a lover’s verse is crying/ Holds the heartbeat in it’s hands, so nothing here is broken.
Moonlight hits the room the night is split wide open, drags the darkness into light our moments won’t be stolen
We hurry not to wait, to see the golden fountain/fight our way through hell to reach the summit of the mountain.
The heartbeat can be felt until the blood no longer flows/let’s open up our hearts and let the inspiration go.
Darkness drops its hold, daylight fills the windows/moments stolen from the cold, returned to us from shadows.
The clock will never stop, our lives are tied to time/ We hope to beat the end but we can’t step out of the line. Slow the heartbeat, take a rest, walk away from all the fire/ There’s nothing on the other side that anyone desires.
The rain fell down the window like tears out of the sky/ But right behind the rain and tears, the sun was shining bright.
We get locked inside our dreams and there’s no way through the door/ Stuck between the dark and light and searching still for more/ We’re standing on the border right between the dark and dawn/ Trying hard to shake ourselves awake the night is gone.
Some mornings we awake to find a howling, freezing wind/but just beyond our view the sunlight waits to pull us in.
Whispers from a lovers verse/ Soothe the soul when nothing works. They shine a light in every space/ All the dark has been replaced.
Moonlight hits the room, shadows hidden, frozen/force the fear out of the gloom, our moments won’t be stolen.
There’s hope in every loss, life in every death/ The moon would disappear without the sun to give it breath.
There’s hope in every loss we have, life in every death/ The moon does not exist without the sun to give it breath.
In between the dark and light that makes up every single life/ Lies a stolen moment, maybe one that we have chosen/ Maybe one that’s chosen us, frozen us in time.
There’s a beggar at the corner and it seems he’s given up/ Someone stole his bed roll, left a dollar in his cup. But there’s hope in every loss, life in every death/ The moon would disappear without the sun to give it breath.
There’s a beggar at the corner and it seems he’s given up/ Someone stole his bed roll, left a dollar in his cup. But there’s hope in every loss we have, life in every death/ The moon does not exist without the sun to give it breath.
Running through our lives, we look to find a lover/steal a moment here and there, will we stop and find each other?
Fire always follows smoke, dust and wind are often friends/ Sleep can lead us into dreams, beginnings into ends.
And here’s a stolen moment, awaiting our attention/the time we spend without it is just barely worth the mention.
The sun pulled down the moonlight as the darkness faded fast/ I was walking through the dawn when I first saw her gliding past.
The world is rolling by me I can feel the brush of air/ I wonder if I’ve missed the chance to handle something rare.
We face the coming fate, glaring with defiance/but whispers from a lovers verse soothe the heart like diamonds.
We hurry not to wait, to see the golden fountain/fight our way through hell to reach the summit of the mountain.
We take a look inside, a golden haunting vision/built with careful loving hands and measured with precision.
We’re jolted from a dream, sleep was just a moment/but it’s peaceful as we wake, our time cannot be stolen.
Our eyes take in the view, we stand in awe of nature/the rain the sun the sky, the love that’s in our future.
Sleeping ‘til the sunlight, flies in through the window/through the room and down the stairs, chasing all the shadows.
Angels stand in wait, to swing the doors wide open/steal some time before we’re late, but keep the line in motion.
Our passion takes no prisoners, fights through any battle/never breaks or falls away nothing here is fragile.
Moonlight hits the room, chases all the shadows/a perfect moment stolen as we watch it from the window.
Our souls look hard for hope, look for loving guidance/loving arms to keeps us from a long deserted island.
We face the coming fate, no fear will leave us frozen/push the darkness into light, our moments won’t be stolen.
Darkness drops its hold, daylight fills the window/moments stolen from the cold, just lie back and watch them go.
Darkness dropped its hold, daylight filled the window/moments stolen from the cold, quiet like the winter snow.
Flying through a dream, but then the dream is over/the sun begins to stream, and love has been discovered.
Dreaming through the night, they hide before they’re broken/push the darkness into light, our moments won’t be stolen.
Moonlight hits the room, shadows hidden, frozen/push the fear out of the gloom, our moments won’t be stolen.
Taken from the night, dreams hide and then they’re frozen/push the darkness into light, our moments won’t be stolen.
Stolen from the night, dreams hide and then they’re frozen/push the darkness into light, our moments won’t be stolen.
Falling stars cross the sky, lie back and enjoy one/stolen moments as they fly, lovers waiting for the sun.
Daylight fills your eyes, night looks hard for cover/moments stolen as you rise, now the the night is over.
Running through our lives, we look for time together/steal a moment here and there, with a look, a touch, a letter.
Shadows fall from sight, hit the light and falter/stolen moments from the night left waiting at the altar.
Daylight fills your eyes, as darkness start to shatter/moments stolen as we rise, and shadows run and scatter.
Darkness dropped its hold, light filled in the spaces/moments stolen from the cold, warmth has come here to embrace us.
Every moment counts, a thief will try to steal one/hold them tight don’t let them out, be sure they see the sun.
Moonlight hits the room, chases all the shadows/steals the moment from the gloom, brings a silent steady glow.
Angels have to fly, have the grace, reach our souls/then they lead us you and I out of desperation’s hold.
Light from every source, every crack and open space/filled the room and in it’s course, filled our hearts with hope and grace.
Quiet filled our night, we held ourselves together/and this was always right, just love without the pressure.
Darkness dropped its hold, light filled in the spaces/moments taken from the cold, warmth has come here to embrace us.
When I see the look, that light behind your eyes/broken laughter beats a broken dream that takes you by surprise.
Every time you smile, I see the sunlight winning/lose my breath for just a while, then the world goes back to spinning.
Headed for the sun, out of deepest winter/scattered showers, we can run, the chance of snow is slimmer.
Headed for the sun, coming out of deepest dark/you are the only one that I can trust to find the spark.
I can hear your voice, far out in the distance/given only this one choice I say we take our chances.
No one sees us fly, we’re gone in just a heartbeat/broken promise, broken lives but together we’re complete.
So we fight, but we’re blind, pray we’re standing in the line/that will lead us and speed us through the night.
We’ve finally found the key, what it opens we can’t see/just follow every echo in the night.
We arrive just in time, having hidden all our crimes/then we wait for our fate through the night.
Then our heart gets exposed but we don’t find freezing cold/it’s just beating and heating glowing bright.
In a place that hides no sins, you pray that you’ll get in/from the cold and the bitter of the night.
We can beg to get in, hope there’s cover for the sins/and they drift in the mist of the night.
So we fight haunted dreams, think we’ve seen the brightest beam/so we follow from the hollow distant night.
If we make our way inside, we’ll have nothing left to hide/just hold on find gold along the ride.
Will we know what to do, when the line is just a few/there’s a question to be answered, make it right.
Is that gold in the crown, has it fallen on the ground/pick it up, dust it off shine it bright.
Wait your turn where you stand, you can’t push ahead as planned/look away if the saints get too bright.
But it’s fine we’re in line, the wait is by design/there’s no hurry no worry in this fight.
So we wait for our turn, hope to fly and not to burn/pray an angel’s up ahead to hold us tight.
So we stare at the time, how could we be this blind/the true test just might rest with our sight.
When the echos that you hear, are filled with sounds of fear/listen closer you might catch the sound of light.
Then the ground beneath our feet is shaking like a leaf/and we stand still for the good will of time.
When the cracks in the earth run deep into the dirt/we go searching and reaching for life.
So we fall to our knees, look for anyone to please/hope to find them long before we see the night.
A storm lies ahead and we’re staring down the cold/but the winter wind can change and make it bright.
While the clouds hide the sun, the winter wind is cold/we’ll be hopeful and pray through the night.
So we push through the line, hope to get to something fine/and we see it just ahead all dressed in white.
When the wind and the rain, take comfort in our pain/they pierce us and force us into caves.
We fight the dreams that haunt us, hope the day will come/when sleep is not a fearful place to be.
When each step that we take is blind and on the edge/one wrong move and we’ve got proof of hell.
When the ground beneath our feet starts shaking like a leaf/we can’t run we can’t hide from the quake.
The sun fell away in the clouds and in the rain/was it stolen like a moment from our lives?
When the wind and the storm make us huddle in the cold/and we’re searching and reaching for warm.
When the cracks in the earth run deep into the dirt/gotta hold on there’s no place to hide.
When we fall to our knees, look for anyone to please/then we’ve prayed it and played it all wrong.
When the deeds that we’ve done, leave our conscience soiled/we start hiding and fighting the truth.
In the depths of pain, and we’re mopping up the stain/it’s spreading and we’re dreading all the rain.
When you run through the rain, seeking shelter from the pain/‘til you stumble and tumble to the ground.
When the tears that you cry, fall empty on the ground/they’re wasted you’ve just tasted the salt.
When the knife cuts too deep, the wounds will always heal/but we’re not winning if we’re swimming with the sharks.
A storm lies ahead and we’re staring down the cold/then we’re wishing for a distant tiny spark.

When the heart is exposed to the blinding freezing cold/it’s just breaking and aching for love.
If the heart has to hide, from aching pain and shame/we’re not thriving just surviving that ain’t life.
While the clouds hide the sun, the winter wind is cold/and we’re searching and reaching for warm.
There’s the rain from the sky, it’s fallen now for days/we’re just helpless and witness the storm.
There’s the rain from the sky, it’s fallen now for days/we’re just helpless and witness the storm.
While the taste on the tongue is bitter, old and harsh/but we’re crying maybe dying for sweet.
There’s a love beyond the days of despair/take a look around corner it’s there/ Out of the darkness and into the light/out of a dream falling out of the night.
There’s a love beyond the days of despair/take a look around corner it’s there/ There’s a light that shines hope in your eyes/opens the clouds let’s the sun fill sky.
When the dark pulls up the blanket, the light rolls out of bed/ The sky rolls back the clouds, clears the darkness from your head.
The chill of the darkness gives into the light/the warmth of the day breaks its way through the night.
Light comes in waves through the room/chasing the chill of the darkness away.
Out of the darkness into the light/out of a dream out of the night.
Light comes in waves through the room/don’t let the moment pass by us too soon.
I can steal the time back you lost/just a single moment is all that it costs.
I can be a thief of time for the day/give you back a moment you want to save.
There’s light behind the storm and the rain/steals away the moments of pain.
There’s beauty buried deep in the soul/takes away the winter and the cold.
Can we steal a moment from this race/even if we’re staying in one place?
Steal a moment from the end of the day/will we find it any other way?
Hear the wind that whispers and cries/was it stolen like a moment from our lives?
There’s beauty buried deep in the soul/takes away the winter wind and the cold.
There’s a love beyond the days of despair/take a look around corner it’s there.
Can we steal a moment far from this race/even if it means we stay in the same place.
When the heart is exposed you don’t find freezing cold/but a beating and heating glowing light.
And the blood always slows, the wounds always heal/we’re not winning if we’re swimming with the sharks.
Grab a line, grab a a rock, step out into the night/‘til we tumble, maybe stumble into light.
While a rip in the sky, lets in a streak of light/we bathe in and savor any spark.
Grab a line, grab a rock, step out in the night/‘til we tumble, maybe stumble into light.
We try to get beyond it reach a hand out try to rise/‘til we tumble, maybe stumble into light.
While a tear in the sky, lets in a streak of light/and we bathe in any spark that we can find.
The shadow on the wall is proof the light is there/might be far away but it’s a start.
Will the wind and the storm make us huddle in the cold/or can we find a way to break the chains.
Will the wind and the storm make us huddle in the cold/or can we find a tiny distant spark.

We fight the dreams that haunt us, hope the day will come/when sleep comes just as easy as a heartbeat.
We fight the dreams that haunt us, hope the day will come/when sleep is just as easy as the beating of the heart.
The rich man and the beggar, their fate is just the same/they’d love to buy more time, but minutes aren’t for sale.
What lies in the future when we’re staring down the cold/and we look to find a distant tiny spark?

Will the bottom of the barrel shine the brightest light/when the best of humankind has found a home.

Someone’s hiding out there I swear I see their breath/I don’t trust, I’m not adjusted to this life.

No comments

Do we stand behind the doorway waiting for the wolves/that’s hiding just surviving that ain’t life.
The heartbeat can be felt ‘til blood no longer flows/then we’re swallowed whole, nothing more than dirt.
We’ll hit the wall of silence, fall and hit the ground/but wind will have us bending ‘til the end.
We’ll either rise or fall when the winds begin to blow/it matters if you’re grounded or you’re not.
There’s a sign out on the road, says we shouldn’t go this way/admit that it’s a tempting sign today.
The blood will finally slow and the wounds will finally heal/but here we are still swimming with the sharks.
Will the demons finally catch us, grab us from behind/can’t look back just walk away from here.
We see the broken windows, bottles on the ground/this is what we’ve built, should we be proud?
Will the rain and the cold that washes down the street/make us wonder at the thunder that we see.
Does the pain of the cold when we’re pushed out in the street/steal the light and take away our spark.
If the hate of a master doesn’t make you break your chains/the darkness that you’re in should make you scream.
If the life that you live doesn’t make you look for more/then maybe you’re not really there at all.
Will the pain of the cold when you’re pushed out in the street/steal the light and take away your spark.
I tripped and fell and hit the ground but looked up at a smile/ How far would I have to fall to keep her there awhile?
Chaos seemed to rule the day I felt the walls close in/ I felt a hand reach out that wouldn’t let the darkness win.
She fought her demons everyday and somedays they would win/ All I could do was hold her and hope the fight would end.
He was just a street musician hoping coins would hit the case/ She always walked right past him never looked looked him in the face.
I pushed away the dream and tried to flood the room with light/ Somedays every step you take is one you have to fight.
A million words went through my head, nothing true that could be said/ So I just listened to her voice, enjoyed the freedom of my choice.
She caught me in a moment when my guard had fallen down/ The rails are never very high, but seldom on the ground.
I met her in the check out lane, fifteen items only/ I was glad that she had twenty and the line was moving slowly.
The rain had washed itself into a pile of dirt and leaves/ Maybe when the summer comes, the wind will blow it clean.
She was weary from the sunlight that she lived in everyday/ Shade is not abundant here in this part of L.A.
She was living on my sidewalk and I didn’t know her name/ Cost a dollar just to guess it, everyday I played the game.
I was backed into a corner and I couldn’t see the door/ There was no way out unless I crawled across the floor.
The storm began in earnest while I tried to chase the leaks/ When you’ve only got one bucket you can drive yourself to drink.
No one seemed to see her she was quiet, she was shy/ But hearts are always bigger than you see with naked eyes.
There’s a beggar at the corner and I think he’s given up/ Someone stole his night roll, left a dollar in his cup.
We were sitting on a park bench, and numbers were exchanged/ I started twice to dial it but I didn’t get her name.
I broke a silent moment that I should have let hang on/ Sometimes I miss the queues and then I’m left out on my own.
I watched her from the barstool as she walked into the room/ I’m usually not distracted when there’s something to consume.
She headed for the front door with a final kiss goodbye/ I offered her the key so she could come back anytime/ She laughed away the offer and then she disappeared/ I opened the door and said goodbye I’m sure she didn’t hear.
The coffee in the cup was growing colder by the minute/ I was pushing conversation but her heart just wasn’t in it.
She was headed out the door as I was walking in/ I can’t stop believing that I missed a chance right then.
She stood there in the moonlight, she loved the dark and dreary/ Like rain on the parade route while the patrons all got weary.
I looked into a face that I had never seen before/ Ain’t nothin’ you can’t buy these days at high end grocery stores.
The rain fell down the window, tears against the sky/ We watched it from the shadows in a fog out of the light.
I watched her in the shadow of a streetlight down the way/ Waiting for the sun I guess or just the dawn to break.
Standing on the border right between the dark and dawn/ I swore I’d gone to sleep last night, my chance for that was gone.
I was looking out the window when she walked into the light/ I know that I had seen her out there on other moonlit nights.
I was locked inside a dream and couldn’t open up the door/ Thought I’d found a way out but my feet just missed the floor.
The sun pulled down the moonlight as the darkness faded fast/ I was walking through the dawn when I first saw her gliding past.
The world is rolling by me I can feel the brush of air/ I look hard for any chance to taste the midnight fare.
She sat down beside me watched the clouds across the sky/ Some turned into friends of mine, at least to these old eyes/ She swore there was a farmhouse in a cloud bank to the west/ I really couldn’t see it but you know I did my best in that moment.
I sat back in silence while I listened to her voice/ The words were not important, I didn’t have a choice/ She’d caught me in a moment where my guard had fallen down/ And then she walked away and I couldn’t make a sound.
I was watching traffic on a Sunday afternoon/ Nothing much to see until a taxi took the turn/ Rolled it on the sidewalk, missed a tree and hedge/ Guess he thought today was his to step out on the edge and he was gone.
She was at my doorway selling books and magazines/ Might have been the sweetest thing these eyes have ever seen/ Does anybody read those? I thought before I bought/ The mailman brings them monthly and my neighbors swear I’m odd
She was at my doorway selling books and magazines Might have been the sweetest thing these eyes have ever seen Does anybody read those? I thought before I bought The mailman brings them monthly and my neighbors swear I’m odd
So while we’re together and tomorrow’s out there

We’ll watch each sunrise turning into daylight
You and I can stay here while the rain falls out there
While the time is moving and the world is spinning
I’ll use all my senses, grab each dream that passes
While the time keeps moving, I’ll be there with you

No comments

So I’ll hold you all night ‘til we both see daylight
Each day together is just one more treasure
And our days together are all time to treasure
Our time’s not over but the days move faster

No comments

I’ll save each pleasure like a buried treasure
So I’ll wait for daylight, after every long night
And it’s good to be here just to breathe together (Credit Kayly for the “breath” idea)
So I’ll breathe this time in I’ll be here to feel it (Credit Kayly for the “breath” idea)
And it’s good to be here share this time together
And I’ll count each second that we have together
I can look and see you and your light just shines through
So I’ll see the beauty, when I look around me
I won’t waste tomorrow, or hold on to sorrow
I won’t waste a second of our days together
I won’t miss a second of our time together
And I’ll take more chances, grab each dream that passes
(2nd line) I hold on to today, but tomorrow won’t wait, I may be gone when it comes.
(2nd line) The days pass us by, like we’re frozen in time, reach out your hand and they’re gone.
(2nd line) How do I move past it, the time that I’ve let slip, can’t get it back when it’s gone.
And in front of me lies, many tear filled goodbyes, let the tears fall without shame.
(2nd line) I’d hold you tomorrow, I’d be glad to borrow, time from today if I could.
(2nd line) I’d promise tomorrow, it’s joy and it’s sorrow, it’s not mine to just give away.
(2nd line) I’ve learned a few lessons, and gained more compassion, (I’ve) still got a long way to go.
(2nd line) And I may have held on, just a little too long, there was no way to let go.
(2nd line) I’ll look hard for a way, to be better today, I’ll just let yesterday go.
(2nd line) And in front of me lies, many tear filled goodbyes, I’ll let them fall without shame.
(“Every heartbeat reminds me” by Ddubs), I’ve been loved by so many/ Good friends and family, they pushed me and held me, (and) always knew which one I’d need.
(“Every heartbeat reminds me” by Ddubs), There’s love all around me/ You don’t need to go far, you can stand where you are, look up and love will be there.
(“Every heartbeat reminds me” by Ddubs), That nothing in life’s free/ No I still have to pay, I won’t give up today, I know that I can stand strong.
(“Every heartbeat reminds me” by Ddubs), That living will cost me/ It might hurt to move on, you might think that I’ve gone, (but) this love will stay by your side.
(“Every heartbeat reminds me” by Ddubs), It’s your love behind me/ It gets me through the day, and I’m able to say, you are the reason I stand.
(“Every heartbeat reminds me” by Ddubs), That someone can see me/ Yes I’m standing right here, I’m not hiding in fear, hoping I get through the night.
(“Every heartbeat reminds me” by Ddubs), Your love can still find me/ You don’t need to look hard, no I’m not all that far, closer than you might believe.
(“Every heartbeat reminds me” by Ddubs), Of all I can still dream/ If I keep them alive, I can help them to thrive, as long as tomorrow arrives.
(“Every heartbeat reminds me” by Ddubs), I left chances behind me/ I should have done more, that shook me to the core, I should have taken more time.
(“Every heartbeat reminds me” by Ddubs), I’ve got lessons behind me/ If I learn from the past, don’t move forward too fast, I believe life will be fine.
(“Every heartbeat reminds me” by Ddubs), I don’t have to be lonely/ If I spend some more time, and I don’t miss a sign, I just might find you today.
Every heartbeat reminds me, of the people behind me/ The family and friends, that stand there to the end, make sure I never give in.
Every heartbeat reminds me, of the life that’s behind me/ All the loves that I’ve had, all the good times and bad, made me who I am today.
Every heartbeat reminds me, it’s you right beside me/ Tell me where would I be, without all the shared dreams, and all that we hold in our hands.
Every heartbeat reminds me, that you stand beside me/ If I get one more dawn, will you stay and hold on, let’s watch just one more sunrise.
Every heartbeat reminds me, that it’s you right behind me/ I can’t promise tomorrow, but this much I know, I can give all of today.
Every heartbeat reminds me, of the distance behind me/ Some days it’s been hard, but I’ve made it this far, there’s not a minute I’d trade.
Every heartbeat reminds me, that love will come find me/ Hope it gets here today, (‘cause) tomorrow just may be, a dream that will never come true.
Every heartbeat reminds me, I’ve left days behind me/ I’d hold you tomorrow, that promise is hollow, this day is all I can give.
Every heartbeat reminds me, that time is not with me/ I may just have today, tomorrow just may be, a dream that never comes true.
Every heartbeat reminds me, I left chances behind me/ I’ll look to tomorrow, to fight off the sorrow, some things I’ll never forget.
Every heartbeat reminds me, there’s love that can find me/ If I find there’s a heart, that would give all or part, I’ll make it easy to share.
Every heartbeat reminds me, of all that’s behind me/ I look to tomorrow, there’s no time to borrow, I see it slippin’ away.
Every heartbeat reminds me, that time can still find me/ Then come empty the joy, find a way to destroy, all that I’ve built with my hands.
Every heartbeat reminds me, that pain lives behind me/ I’ve felt ev’ry sorrow, there’ll be more tomorrow, I know that and still I can smile.
Every heartbeat reminds me, of all that’s behind me/ So if I see tomorrow, the joy or the sorrow, I’ll know it’s not over yet.
Love holds on forever but life is short
I’d hold you forever, but Life is Short.
Our love lasts forever, but Life is Short. (thanks MariaJack)
We can hold back the tears, but Life is Short.
We hold our back goodbyes, but Life is Short.
I’d hold you tomorrow, but Life is Short.

There’s no heart that’s broken cannot be fixed.
I’ll walk through the fire and take any risk (Fire is two syllables)
I’ll push through a crowd just to see you again.
I’ll move a few mountains I’ll grant you a wish
So I'll live this moment with my heart wide open
I won’t miss a second, no matter what happens/ If I hold on real tight, while today turns to night, be sure that I leave no doubts.
I missed a full second, not sure how it happened/ It just passed me right by, with my eyes opened wide, I’d like to know where it’s bound.
I’m waiting for daylight, it’s been such a long night/ If I see the sunrise, and it comes with blue skies, I’ll walk away from my doubts.
The hands keep on moving, they never stop turning/ If I had all the time, and I followed the signs, I’d find the only way out. (Thanks to M. Ocho for the idea)
I can’t get the days back, they travel by too fast/ If I build up a dam, they’ll wash over my plans, I have to move on and out.
I’m here on the shoreline, not sure what I might find/ If you stand there for long, you can hear the wave’s song, I know the strength of that sound.
How do I move past it, the time that I’ve let slip/ I can love ‘til it hurts me, then fall in the dirt too, I won’t stay down on the ground.
I can’t get the time back, it ran by me too fast/ And I can’t make a deal, with the devil to steal, dreams I let fall to the ground.
The hands keep on moving, they never stop turning/ If I had all the time, and I followed the signs, I’d find no easy way out.
Time takes little pieces, they blow on the breezes/ Yes it just chips away, we have nothing to say, we can’t start slowing it down.
But time never tells you, what it will or it won’t do/ You can have it all planned, and take your final stand, you can’t get far from your doubts.
But time never told me, what will or what won’t be/ Though I had it all planned, and took my final stand, time left me holding my doubts.
But time won’t wait for me, I need to pick up speed/ While I watched it just fly, with no tender goodbye, time passed and I heard no sound.
I hear that old clock chime, tuned well and kept so fine/ The best of our good days the worst of our bad days, live in that beautiful sound.
Life moves on without us, all we have is blind trust/ You can either believe, or get fully deceived, stumble and fall to the ground.
But time isn’t wasted, if you’re willing to taste it/ So don’t drink it too fast, let the sweet flavor last, then you can swallow it down.
Life comes at a high cost, it’s easy to get lost/ I won’t give up too fast, like I have in the past, the road up ahead is not down.
It comes at a high price, this thing that we call life/ Though I’m willing to pay, I’m not ready to say, answers are easily found.
So now I’ll move forward, look hard for some good words/ The people and places, the friendliest faces, those who can love you out loud.
I hope to be better, spend time getting stronger/ I’ll just hold out my hand, and help someone else stand, I think I’ve figured out how.
I see the tide rising, it’s not that surprising/ That it washes away all the dust, dirt and clay, lets it seek higher safe ground.
It’s been such a long night, I need to see daylight/ If I’d never let go, you’d still be there to hold, I’m here and you’re in the clouds.
But time won’t just slow down, the clock ticks and we’re bound/ No I can’t tip the scale, I can’t tell a good tale, there’s just no easy way out.

I took a few chances, looked hard for a free hand/ But I can’t make a deal, there’s no more time to steal, I’ve looked for other doors (ways?) out.
Time comes by to stop us, it picks up and drops us/ We just keep holding on, ‘til the day that we’re gone, we just get one final bow. (Resubmit with changes for meter and words)
I miss your soft touch, it always meant so much/ You’re always there for me, you stood right before me, wiping the sweat from my brow. (Resubmit with changes for meter and words)
How do you move past it, the time that you’ve let slip/ You love ‘til it hurts you, then fall in the dirt, don’t stay down holdin’ the ground. (Resubmit with changes for meter and words)
And maybe I held on, a little bit too long/ It’s so hard to let go, when you’re sure that you know, all the right answers are found. (Resubmit with changes for meter and words)
So nobody warned me, that time would walk softly/ Then sneak up behind me, and tap on my shoulder, pass by and not make a sound. (Resubmit with changes for meter and words)
I’ve learned a few lessons, I’ve gained some compassion/ Love is the only thing, I can give easily, I don’t need even one sound. (Resubmit with changes for meter and words)
I’m up every morning, sometimes my life’s hurt me/ I walked in with nothing, I’ll leave with the same thing, don’t see another way out. (Resubmit with changes for meter and words)
Yes that’s my creation, a crumbling foundation/ If you just looked inside, you’d be sure that it’s fine, don’t take a hard look around. (Resubmit with changes for meter and words)
I watched time walk by me, thought sure it would find me/ But I’ve learned not to wait, I will not hesitate, I’m here to figure this out. (Resubmit with changes for meter and words)
The sand is still shiftin’, I feel like I’m driftin’/ I see the waves tumble, then crash down and crumble, it would easy to drown. Or (It’d be so easy to drown)
The sand is still shiftin’, I feel like I’m driftin’/ I see the waves tumble, then crash down and crumble, easily pull me straight down.
How do you move past it, the time that you’ve let slip/ You love ‘til it hurts you, fall in the dirt, but you’ll never be long on the ground.
I think of tomorrow, it brings me no sorrow/ ‘Cause in every last scene, and in every last dream, I hear your voice speak out loud.
Imagine where I’d be, if you hadn’t found me/ I’d been locked far away, with no one to save me, I’d never find my way out.
We try to get better, there’s before and then after/ Who’s gonna tell us to live in some hell when there’s plenty of heaven right now.
I won’t give up so fast, I want this to just last/ I’ll walk with my head up, no reason to shakeup, the life we’re living right now.
I’ll move on from this place, live life at my own pace/ The hands just keep turning, the fire keeps burning, while time waits for one final round.
I watched it walk by me, thought sure it would find me/ But I’ve learned not to wait I will not hesitate I’m here to find out what counts.
Yes that’s my creation, a crumbling foundation/ If you just look inside you’ll be sure that it’s fine don’t take a good look around.
I walk through the dark night, sure I’ll see daylight/ When storms come I hold on, I’ll hope until they’re gone try hard to calm myself down.
I get up every morning, sometimes my life’s hurt me/ But I walked in with nothing I’ll leave with the same thing gone without even a sound.
There’s no sign to guide me, the path is mine only/ The world set itself right and I’ll be safe tonight, I keep an ear to the ground.
I’ve learned a few lessons, gained some compassion/ Love is the one thing I can give freely without ever making a sound.
How much do I need this, just like my first kiss/ There’s no place I can hide, when I’ve got tears to cry, can’t let one fall to the ground.
I can’t stand here waiting, and hope that creation/ Has set itself right and I’ll be safe tonight, no this needs a hard look around.
I can’t stand here waiting, and hope that creation/ Has set itself right and I’ll be safe tonight, I’ll take a hard look around.
I need to move forward, fly high like a small bird/ Or get stuck here behind, with no way to unwind, no way to set myself down.

With each passing heartbeat, there’s a little piece of me/ That flies far away, I won’t see it again, it’s fallen straight to the ground.
I’ve spent my days running, not sure where the fun was/ I’ve been up to the top, then felt the ground drop but I never fell quietly down.
I don’t see tomorrow, is it joy, is it sorrow?/ I won’t carve it in stone I’ll just leave it alone, wait to see what I have found.
Nobody warned me, time would walk softly/ And then sneak up behind me, tap on my shoulder and pass me without any sound.
Nobody warned me, time would walk softly/ And then sneak up behind me, tap on my shoulder and move right on past me somehow.
And time doesn’t stop us, it won’t even drop us/ It just sweeps us along on the edge of a song then invites us to take a last bow.
I feel your soft touch, it always meant so much/ Like a soft summer breeze and cool cotton sleeve wiping the sweat from my brow.
And maybe we’ll see storms, but I think we’ll stay warm/ If they come we’ll hold on ‘til we’re sure that they’ve gone that’s all we can do anyhow
I left without talking, then never stopped walking/ I just moved through the night ‘til I knew you’d lost sight and that’s all that I would allow.
And maybe we held on, a little bit too long/ But it’s hard to let go when you’re sure that you know the where, the when and the how.
Life won’t last forever/ Love will never die.
We can’t turn back the clock/And the earth never stops/ Moving around the sun/ One more year/And we might not be here/ It’s somethin’ that we’ll never outrun.
The days pass us by/Like we’re frozen in time/We can’t go along for the ride/ We hold on to today/But tomorrow won’t wait/ I need more/Life is short.
Drink today in like a bottle of whiskey/ Tomorrow it might just be empty.
I see the rain fall out in the distance/ Here the sun is bright and it’s clear/ So as long as we all stand together/ Let it pour/ Life is Short.
I worry about tomorrow/ Sometimes yesterday/ Then realize I’ve only got today/ Life is short.
Today I can love you, today I can care/ Tomorrow we might not be here.
Drink today in like a shot of good whiskey/ Empty the bottle don’t wait ‘til tomorrow.
Lay the whole deck on the table today/ Don’t wait ‘til tomorrow to play.
Drink in today like you’re thirsty/ Tomorrow belongs to no one.
Today is the day to hold on to/ Tomorrow is promised to none.

I walked in here with nothin’/ I’ll leave with just the same.
I got no promise when I started/ I still have none today.
A step toward tomorrow/ Closes distance on today.
Every day we try to get better/ Put a little light in our lives.
Put away the things that don’t matter/ Focus on the things you can change.
Do you ever sit and wonder/ What’s out there in the distance.
Today you’ve got a million dreams/ Tomorrow maybe none.
Does the view ever change/ If you don’t take a different road.
Will tomorrow begin/ Like today never ended.
Today came to an end/ And tomorrow’s not my friend.
The sounds of desperation/ From deep within the soul.

I watch the end of one night/ While the sunrise lights the sky.
I know that you’re still with me/ I know that you’re always here.
No matter what we’ve been through/ No matter where you go.
Your love is still around me/ I’m wrapped in that embrace.
I’m sure love goes on forever/ In my heart I feel it fly.
There’s a burning question in the soul/ It’s there if you’re young or you’re old.
We worry ‘bout the things that don’t matter/ And everything that we can’t change.
There’s a burning fire within the soul/ It’s there if you’re young or old
No one knows the answer/ But the question’s always there.
Every heartbeat moves you/ A little closer to the end.
Time has a desperate hold/ On everyone you know.
Push and pull
Now we can’t lose/ All we have between us/ We can choose/ Keep our own sides/ We can stay/ Together I believe there’s time/ I’m never gonna change your mind.
Some nights you spend/ Holding to your answer/ Here I stand/ Holdin’ to mine/ I can bend/ I won’t break to make you right/ And I’m never gonna change your mind.
It’s the heart/ Keepin’ us together/ There it starts/ Where we have ties/ If we stand/ Together we’ll be alright/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
Are you prepared/ To keep us both together/ This is rare/ The light we can shine/ I’ll be here/ Tryin to keep our light in line/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
If I could choose/ I’d pull us to the middle/ You don’t move/ There’s always a side/ I don’t know/ How to make the darkness shine/ And I’m never gonna change your mind.
We’ve still got time/ Close a little distance/ One straight line/ Here to your side/ Close the gap/ Try to keep the hope alive/ Though I’m never gonna change your mind.
Well I’d like to try/ Walk this road together/ Side by side/ Open our minds/ We can close/ Distance if we just keep tryin’/ Though I’m never gonna change your mind.
And when we push and pull/ One side and the other/ We’re both sure/ We’ve got the prize/ Look around/ There’s common ground we can find/ Though I’m never gonna change your mind. (Resubmit with We’re and We’ve instead of You and You’ve)
When we’re miles apart/ Movin’ to the middle/ Then the heart/ Opens our eyes/ It’s not hard/ Together we’ll be just fine/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
When we have hope/ It answers every question/ Hold it close/ Know we’re alright/ We’ll work hard/ Friends will always be just fine/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
If I had to lose/ Anything between us/ I’d have to choose/ Space and lost time/ We’ve spent days/ Standin’ when we should be flyin’/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
And when we push and pull/ One side and the other/ You’re so sure/ You’ve got the prize/ Look around/ There’s common ground we can find/ Though I’m never gonna change your mind.
When they all fall down/ Walls that stand between us/ There’s no sound/ They quietly die/ I’ve been wrong/ That won’t always make you right/ And I’m never gonna change your mind.
If I had to lose/ Anything between us/ Think I’d choose/ Space and lost time/ We’ve both used/ Words that never helped us fly/ And I’m never gonna change your mind.

And when life pulls down Hope can be the answer/ Lost and found/ Not out of time/ I look hard/ Over there and on this side/ But I’m never gonna change your mind. (Resubmit with edits from Beth’s input)
We can’t meet here/ The road has gotten narrow/ Through the years/ (It’s) never been wide/ I’ll keep fear/ Far away so we can try/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
I stand right here/ Not far from the canyon/ The view’s not clear/ Hope a light shines/ There’s no fear/ Standin’ on the other side/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
I looked straight up/ Stars are gettin’ brighter/ I’ve got luck/ Here on my side/ Don’t get stuck/ Thinkin’ that you’re always right/ I’m never gonna change your mind.
Guess I could rack my brain/ Tryin’ to find a reason/ Go insane/ Lookin’ for signs/ There’s no chance/ You would ever see this side/ ‘Cause I’m never gonna change your mind.
I could state my case (BNC)/ Does it really matter?/ Lose the race/ We’ll still be fine/ In this place/ You can always take a side/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
I took your hand/ Walked you to the answers/ You still stand/ There on your side/ I’ve got plans/ Friends will always be just fine/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
Guess I could rack my brain/ Tryin’ to find a reason/ Go insane/ Lookin’ for signs/ There’s no chance/ Answers can be far behind/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
We both have thoughts/ Things that we believe in/ Mine don’t stop/ When you draw a line/ We’re both free/ Find whatever makes it right/ And I’m never gonna change your mind. (Resubmit to clean up line 6)
Took it all apart/ Put it back together/ A piece of art/ Tattered from time/ If we start/ I think we can make it shine/ Though I’m never gonna change your mind.
I tear my heart/ Into little pieces/ Throw the parts/ Up to the sky/ Not sure when/ (if?) It’ll ever come back by/ Cause I’m never gonna change your mind.
When life pulls down/ Hope can find an answer/ Lost then found/ Clearly we’re fine/ I feel sure/ You and I will be alright/ But I’m never gonna change your mind. (Resubmit to clean up some lines)
When I see your face/Lookin’ for an answer/ (I) State my case/ (BNC) Say all my lines/ You’ve got doubts/ Friends are on the other side/ And I’m never gonna change your mind.
So long ago/ We stood here together/ Now we don’t/ We’re in our lines/ I’d step out/ Meet you on the other side/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
Now I don’t see you/ With any kind of anger/ It’s the truth/ This is no lie/ You’ll see me/ Friendly on another side/ Cause I’m never gonna change your mind.
I see the signs/ Out there in the distance/ One says left/ The other one right/ You picked one/ That’s the way you see your life/ And I’m never gonna change your mind.
So it’s laid bare/ Distance in between us/ I’m not scared/ (Of) crossing that line/ I’ve got hope/ Nothing is too hard to find/ Though I’m never gonna change your mind.
Oh the lines are clear/ One side and the other/ I’m right here/ You’re on that side/ I still hope/ For common ground we can find/ Though I’m never gonna change your mind.
Now we’ve walked down/ Tougher roads together/ Can’t stop now/ Don’t you see why?/ Every step/ Takes us to a place we fly/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
When life pulls down/ Hope can find an answer/ Hear that sound/ Clearly we’re fine/ I feel sure/ You and I can be alright/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
We climbed that hill/ Hit the top together/ That’s the thrill/ That’s how we fly/ I believe/ We can make it all worth while/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
We’ve pushed and pulled/ Is there any reason?/ Hearts are full/ Distance is fine/ Don’t believe/ Anyone is always right/ I’m never gonna change your mind.
We both have thoughts/ Things that we believe in/ Mine don’t stop/ When you draw a line/ We’re both free/ Find the truth that feels just right/ And I’m never gonna change your mind.
It just feels right/ Standing here together/ When the light/ Opens our eyes/ I stand here/ Yes I’m on the other side/ And I’m never gonna change your mind.
It feels so right All that I believe in/ You may fight/ Think that I’m blind/ I won’t change/ Anything I hold inside/ And I’m never gonna change your mind.
I paced the floor/ Listened to the silence/ We’ve got more/ Words we can find/ I’ll talk all night/ If we really both keep tryin’/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
So it’s alright/ Things we don’t agree on/ No more fights/ Wasting our time/ (We) Both hold firm/ Anytime we think we’re right/ So I’m never gonna change your mind.
A slice of light Cuts into the darkness Not too bright Oh but it shines Hope can live You and I can be alright But I’m never gonna change your mind.
We don’t agree/ That can be forever/ We’re both free/ (To) Have our own minds/ Hope can live/ You and I can be alright/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
We’ve run this race/ Couldn’t pick a winner/ There’s your lane/ I’ll stay in mine/ We’ve got time/ I know we can make it right/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
We’ve both faced/ Longer roads together/ I won’t waste/ Anymore time/ We can close/ Distance if we just keep tryin’/ Though I’m never gonna change your mind.

I keep your heart/ Backed into a corner/(BNC) You’d do your part/ Tryin’ to break free/ Life like that/ Makes you wonder why you’re tryin’ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
A great divide/(BNC) Lyin’ there between us/ It’s deep and wide/ (I) Think we can find/ A way around/ I’ll meet you on the other side/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.

I can sing my songs/ Lookin’ for an answer/ I’ll stay too long/ Lookin’ for rhymes/ Can’t be wrong/ For us to just talk and try/ Though I’m never gonna change your mind.
When I see your smile/ I forget your anger/ I’m like a child/ Lost here in time/ Words roar back/ None of them are soft and kind/ I’m never gonna change your mind.

If I keep your heart/ Backed into a corner/(BNC) You’d do your part/ Tryin’ to break free/ Life like that/ Gets you to the bottom line/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
You believe you’re right/ Who am I to tell you/ That I’m so bright/ I’ll make it fine/ Face to face/ Everything is in your eyes/ And I’m never gonna change you mind.

I can see your light/ Hidin’ in the shadows/ I’ve got no fight/ Left in me now/ I’ll just wait/ For anything we left behind/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
I could slam the door/ Walk away in anger/ Or pace the floor/ Try not to cry/ Talk all night/ Waitin’ for the sun to rise/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
I can take your hand/ Lead you to the answer/ That was my plan/ No you can’t hide/ Hope can live/ Even in the darkest night/ But I’m never gonna change your mind.
Ideas for: Sometimes when the truth shines clear “Anytime the truth shines clear” “When I see the truth shine clear” “When I feel the truth this near” “When I see the truth shine clear” “When I know it’s truth this near” “If I see the truth shine clear” Mostly the same idea, just a bit less of a mouth full.

I’m always on the other side/ Hopin’ there’s a better way to live/ You can push away and hold to pride/ But I can hold my own and just forgive.
Do we ever find a place/ (Where) we haven’t drawn a line in the sand/ Will we ever find the perfect space/ You never think we will I think we can.
It’s always been a game we play/ To swallow every word that’s true/ But all the words we never say/ Just put us in a place where we can lose.
Well I’m always gonna be right here/ I’m hardened like a river stone/ And even if I see your tears/ I’ll never walk away from all we’ve known.
There’s every chance we fall apart/ Nothin’ that we do we get for free/ Gonna try to hold you in my heart/ And I hope you’re gonna try to hold me.
I listen to the words you say/ Guess I need to make another plan/ And lookin’ at the world today/ Theres nothin’ that would change the place you stand.
I’m always on the other side/ Just lookin’ for some common ground/ Well there’s nothin’ in the world like pride/ To make you take a side and stake it down.
I’ve always been a real true friend/ I give you all the space you need to grow/ Oh but trust me every now and then/ I’m thinkin’ of the love I want to show. (Friend concept is from MariaJack)
Somethin made us come this far/ We only need a little bit o’ time/ We’ve been reachin’ for the highest star/ Now I see it bright and shinin your eyes.
We’re livin through some real hard times/ All we need is just a little spark/ (But)while we’re livin’ in it we stay blind/ Need a shinin’ light to guide us through the dark.
We’re livin through some real hard times/ All we need is just a little spark/ But in the middle of it we’re all blind/ ‘Til we see a light come shinin’ through the dark.
There’s every chance we fall apart/ Nothin’ that we do we get free/ Gonna try to hold you in my heart/ And I hope you’re gonna try to hold me.
If I ever find a way inside/ I’ll move until I push right through/ You can never say that I stopped tryin’/ ‘Cause nothin’ could be further from the truth.
I’m always on the other side/ Hopin’ for a better way to live/ Well there’s nothin’ in the world like pride/ (But) it’s never gonna stop the word forgive.
You’ve never been the one to bend/ You tell me that there isn’t any way/ So you’re standin’ in a cold hard wind/ And you’re hopin’ that I’ll head the other way.
You’ve never been the one to move/ (1/4 note rest) Even in a hurricane wind/ And you’ll tell me that I can’t undo/ Anything that pushed us to the end.
Oh the words I waste
