The things that weigh the most
And when you're safe back home and the sunlight crashes through / Let that remind you that I'll always... yeah I'll always...
And if you ever find yourself alone out in a storm / My love is strong enough to carry... you back home
If you find yourself alone out there and caught up in a storm / Just call my name and I will come and carry you back home...
And if you ever find yourself lost out in a storm / Reach out brother, call my name / I will bring home...
And if you ever feel alone / or if you've lost your way / If the silence ever gets too loud at the dimming of the day / Brother you know I'll reach out for you if you should start to fall / I'll pick you up and carry you just like I did before...
I will catch you if you fall / I'll be your saving grace / I'll lift you up and carry you any time and any place / Brother please believe these words 'cause each one holds the truth / Yeah I will catch you if you fall / I'll always carry you...
You set me free / like the bird flies in the sky / like the last note in a song / You knew that I would carry on / and carry you... I carry you
You set me free like the singing of a song after all the words are gone you still hold the melody / You carried me / And I will carry you
You set me free when you carried me along / Like the singing of a song soars before the words are gone
And we'll never be apart / 'Cause you're right here in my heart / And you always get me through / I carry you...
I can feel you on my skin as the sunlight dances in /
And in my smile you show up too /
I carry you...
Like the ocean holds the tide / Like the love you hold inside / For the ones that always seem to get you through / I'll carry you
Like a newborn in your arms / Like a small boy's lucky charm / Like the first kiss two young lovers hold onto / I'll carry you...
In everything I do I will carry you
So I would know just how big this world could be, back then it was just you and me, but now you're gone...
You come back home~ and it feels strange~ / You walk around tryin' to find your past but everything's changed
Soldier I know how you feel / I've been down that road before / I can see it in your eyes / It's a heavy, heavy, load / That you carry...
Soldier I know how you feel / I've been down that road
I can see it in your eyes / It's a heavy, heavy, load
Brother I know how you feel/ I've been down that road before
When everything comes crashin' down around you / And you've lost sight of everyone as the cold dark night surrounds you
And in our stolen moments, rain washing us in bliss, we laugh at darkness as we seal our own world with a kiss
We gently brush the shadows as on the light they gather, stolen moments call us to the happy ever after
But storms come back around, they knock us to the ground and leave us out here crying in the cold
In those hearts we find / A little piece of mind / (an') Stolen moments that we tucked away
And waiting there in shining light / Are stolen moments in the night / That take us to the reason we endure / Those diamonds that we hide away / They keep the darkness safe at bay / Those stolen moments take my breath away
In the depths of the pain, on the brink of insane, we reach for the pulse in our hearts
When the pulse of the night repeats its soiled plight and we're reaching for something we can hold
Tucked away inside my heart / Hidin' out there in the dark / Waitin' for a light to spark your memory
From this window I look down / Onto this dark and lonely town
If I see tomorrow, I will leave my sorrow... ( a beat/pause here and then goes down) Behind / (three beats to pick it back up) And I'll say the... (I'm pausing for a second here and going to a lower key on "behind" for affect. I think it gives the last chorus something a bit different and lifts the chorus even higher going in.) ? Confusing?
Every heartbeat reminds me / that you're here beside me
Every heartbeat reminds me / of all that's behind me / But I'll meet tomorrow without any sorrow knowing you're here by my side
The past is behind me / I'll meet every tomorrow without any sorrow weighing my happiness (or tenderness) down
And every sweet smile I will seal with a kiss
Hold you much tighter so you won't forget
That tide it teases, it does what it pleases /
It can all wash away, we've all got feet of clay /
When that wave comes crashin' on down
The tide keeps on turnin' and what I've been learnin'
It can all wash away, we've all got feet of clay The ocean can take with her bow (or - anyhow)
The tide keeps on turning and I keep on learning / It can all wash away, we've all got feet of clay in the end
Yeah, we're back to back / against a wall together / I'll cut your slack / if you'll give up this fight / Face the fact (or Join the pack) / You don't wanna be left behind / So maybe let me change your mind / You know I'm gonna try, try, try... / Am I ever gonna change your mind...
(Concept by keithcurtis) You tear my heart / Into little pieces / Toss them all / into the sky / I take a breath / Releasin' all the tension / I cry... / Cause I'm never gonna change your mind ... But I try, try, try... Why...? / 'Cause I really wanna change your mind...
I can feel the change / you seem a little lighter / Rearrange the damage that was done / Get on this page / the story's gettin' brighter / If - I've - changed - your - miiiiiind...
Let's try to fan this flame / up a little higher
Cast no blame / from either side
End this game / 'cause there's nothing that I haven't tried
Like a tiny spark / begging for a light / Reaching in the dark / The notion...
"Lives" a tiny spark /waiting to ignite /Shining in the dark (Cred - JennRiley, Renee814) I think! :)
Waiting in the dark / Crying for the light / Just enough to spark / The notion that I might
Is a gentle part / in a brighter light / (that) strikes the spark of / the notion that I might…
There's a softer part / there's a brighter light / Makes me wanna start / the notion that I might...
There's a softer part / There's a brighter (or warmer) light
(So) I'll take your hand / Show you where the light is / (I'll) Keep my stand / Expose all the lies / The promised land / Is really not that hard to find
So get over here / This is too important / The whole damn world / Is fallin' apart / Show your face / You used to look me in the eye / And maybe I can change your mind / At least I'll try, try, try
Let's try a little give and take / Let's find a little harmony / With a whole lotta world at stake / It's bigger than just you and me (or) It's a bigger thing than you and me (or) Let's find a place where we agree (?)
Come over, take a walk with me / Let's talk it over side by side / Let's find a little harmony / Or know we really, really truly tried
What we got here is a real hard line / (But) it doesn't have to be this way / If we soften up the edge real fine / Well we both might find a better way, yeah
(And then...) Let's lighten up this heavy load... ?
You be you and I'll be me / Maybe we can do this hand in hand / We got a lot of history / And I never wanna see this friendship end (And then maybe... ?) No, I'm never gonna change your mind / But maybe I can change your heart...
We can still walk side by side / You can look me in the eye again / We can close this great divide
/ We got a ticket for the whole damn ride my friend
Yeah I could call you out / Try to win you over / Scream and shout / Show you the light / Take your hand / Lead you back to better times / (BNC) If I'm ever gonna change your mind
Yeah I could call you out / Try to win you over / Scream and shout / Show you the light / Take your hand / (BNC) Maybe lead you to a brighter side / (mwriley2 & BNC) If I'm ever gonna change your mind
Yeah I could call you out / Try to win you over
Scream and shout / Show you the light
Touch your soul / When you remember what’s wrong or right
But am I ever gonna change your mind
Yeah I could call you out / Try to win you over
Scream and shout / Show you the light
With no doubt / Lead you from the dark of night
But I'm never gonna change your mind
Yeah I could call you out, show you by the numbers / Scream and shout, beg you to try / With no doubt, I could make you wonder why / But I'm never gonna change your mind
Yeah I can call you out, show you all the numbers / Scream and shout, point out all the lies / With no doubt, pull those ideas under with time / But I'm never gonna change your mind
Maybe that's the reason why
You say I’m never gonna change your mind / With your feet firm on the ground / But if the moon can turn the tide / Baby you can turn around (When I sing this, applying vocal modulation (?) it is 10/9 10/9 - O-N and GROU-OUND - TUR-URN and TI-IDE - TUR-URN and AH-ROU-OUND.)
You say I'm never gonna change your mind / But there's something you should know / If the moon can turn the tide / There's no telling where the wind might blow ( I know the syllables are sketchy but I'm singing MOON and the end of TURN with what I technically call "ruffles" which to me, gives those words an extra syllable.) :)
You say I'm never gonna change your mind / With your feet firm on the ground / But if the moon can change the tide / Baby you can turn around
I'm never gonna change your mind / You've always been the stubborn kind
You say I'm never gonna change your mind / But if the moon can change the tide
You say I'm never gonna change your mind / So I might as well not even try
I'm never gonna change your mind / Unless I show you the reason why / Like the stars in a clear night's sky / Like the smell of the Jasmine as the wind blows by... (I think I just got on a "save the planet" kick) :)
Well I'm never gonna change your mind / but I'm sure as hell gonna try
An' I learned about the truth / lovin' you girl / and there ain't...
An' I learned about the truth / that was you, girl / and there ain't...
It's been a long time since I've seen you / Sometimes I wonder how you've been
Man it's been a long time since I saw you / sometimes I wonder how you've been
I think you'd like her if you met her / she can tell a good joke too
The burn you left is still here healing
Ain't one kiss I'd take back girl (Marla) / Ain't one moment from the past girl / 'Cept for that (one?) night I went off the tracks
There ain't one kiss I'd take back girl (Marla) / ain't one sweet smile from the past girl / I mighta changed around my act / if I'da had more time
Underneath that Texas sky we said goodbye...
Even though it fell apart you touched my heart / and there ain't one kiss...
That was the first night I kissed you / but it wouldn't be the last
Long blond hair is flippin' forward / got my hand there on your back
Higher and higher, we rise / Hope shinin' brighter, we rise - we rise/ Holdin' on tighter, we rise/ Together we rise
Higher and higher, where the future looks brighter/ Holdin' on tighter, together we rise
The twilight holds a promise/ there's hope in sight
Hope rains down like diamonds now/it's a glorious flight - Out of the darkness/ and into the bright sunrise
Hope raining down like diamonds now/ it's a glorious flight
Bearing hope for weary souls/ it's a glorious flight
We all sing a melody as we look to the sky
the words that we sing/ begin to take flight/ the dark night eclipsed/ as the voices join in/ the hope shining brightly again
The words that we sing/ begin to take flight
As the words that we sing / they begin to take flight / And they touch every heart / that shines in the night / And the pieces that once were forsaken / Are warmed as they heal from the aching
With our voices we sing as our hearts take flight
