WON’T BE YOUNG

Shake,’ shake me down’
Steal me of my innocence’
Strip,’ strip my sound’
And take my voice away from me’

What’s left is hollowness’

Breathe, ‘breathe it out
My lungs are soaked with disease
There’s something inside 
But it’s not me

Where there is fear there is hope
Burn the candle and let the light grow

Oh, there’s something on the shelf that I can’t reach
These tiny hands are young and green
Oh, these scars on my hands and blisters on my feet
Have yet to form, I’m still naive

But I’m not worried
The path I’m on is the right one
And when I’m done I won’t be young

Stall, stall the stars
They are leaving me behind
Reach, reach your hand out
And pull me from this grime

Where there is fear there is hope
I’ll be your candle just hold me close

Oh, there’s something on the shelf that I can’t reach
These tiny hands are young and green
Oh, these scars on my hands and blisters on my feet
Have yet to form, I’m still naive

But I’m not worried
The path I’m on is the right one
And when I’m done I won’t be young
I won’t be young

REFLECTIONS

I’m stepping on the spaces in between the cracks
To avoid any bad luck coming my way
Cuz God knows I’m from hell and back
And I’m still waiting to be saved

I can't look myself in the mirror
'Til I've left my past behind
So I'll draw a smile into my breathe
To remind myself I'm alive

I’m slipping down the spaces in between the cracks
To a world that is unknown where we are free
And life is given a second chance
To let go and breathe

STATE OF MIND

Happiness is a state of mind
But it's not a state of mine
Felt the spark of it in my life
But it’s not enough to light

Its whispers are beckoning

Will I have another chance
To push the door open
Open to this winding road
Open to my changing soul

I think I've finally found a path
Leading through this dark forest
Even though I’m not with a map
My heart is sure of it

These dense walls are falling down

 

STRANDED IN THE OCEAN

I was once drifting through the fog
Waterlogged and all alone
Until I heard the sirens song
Calling me to come home

You left me stranded in the ocean
Holding onto hope as currents drag me down
You left me stranded in the ocean
Searching for the coast but nowhere to be found

Your whispers in my ear
Blinded me, only love to see
But stormy skies had different plans
Casting me into the tides

And all you wanted was another heart to hold
And all you needed was the power to control
You cast your net, you claim another soul
And you caught me

HOME

Sometimes you're just left dreaming of
Street lights that flicker and die
Empty roads that lead nowhere and
Covered in cracks and dried leaves
Scenes of an old, weathered oak tree that
Breathes of fond memories
Floats through your mind as you
Search for a new weathered tree

Just hope for a better place
Just hope for a better time

If you're lost and alone
With everywhere to roam
Just follow my voice
And I'll take you home
I'll take you home

Somewhere are birds singing of
Spring air and flowers unbloomed
Warm nights cradle your dreams as you
Shamble down this road to
Truth that will take you somewhere
Close that will make you believe
How restless it can be
To be unseen

Just hope for a better place
And you'll find it soon

If you're lost and alone
With everywhere to roam
Just follow my voice
And I'll take you home
If you're lost and alone
With everywhere to roam
Just follow my voice
And I'll take you home
I'll take you home

TIED UP IN THE SHEETS

When sparks are igniting hearts
And hope fuels the fire
When all our passions found
And Spring has made its sound

Is this a connection or is it just me

When we struggle to breathe
We're tied up in these sheets
The closer we get
The more we can see

Is this a connection or is this just me
Can you feel the electricity

Do we wear these masks out of fear or love?
Do we keep our hearts in our palms?
Is it love, is it love?
I hope it is

When life has crossed our paths
And we guess everything we had
When eyes lock and remain
And we both want to stay

Let's take the leap and go
Down this long and dusty road
And see where we end up
Let's take another guess
At everything we said
And see where we end up

I hope it is
I hope it is
I hope it is
Is it love
Yes, it is
