In the morning...

Sleepy head, won't you wake up get out of your bed
let those morning sounds just bring you back to life
move with intent as you cross that threshold of a doorstep
take a look outside and greet the morning light
open up your eyes, tilt your head back to get a view of the sky
appreciate the little things and don't worry about the time
give the world a kiss, thank your lucky stars that you exsist
find pride and don't ever hide the love you have to give
it's the only way to live

but if you're feeling sad and blue
I know some things that you could do
just jump outside and go on a ride
all the pretty things you might find
and watch as your dreams come true

get up on your bike, you got two wheels cruising so you can take in the sights
look at all the pretty things as you pass the world on by
open up your heart, don't let a bad moment keep it in the dark
live everyday in a special way and know we all just came froms stars
that's just what we are

so if you're feeling sad and low
I know a way to let it go
jump outside and go on a ride
all the pretty things you might find
and watch as your dreams unfold

 

Breathe

A dying man will do anything to live
he'll promise you the world knowing it's not his to give
and it don't really matter how you want to break it down
because when your time comes ain't no one gonna be around
I've had some friends take it in their hands to pull the curtains down on life
and I overheard their fateful words said its their right to decide
falling down from the clouds like some birds with broken wings
I understand they're gone but I'm forever gonna hear them sing

and when I'm down at the bottom of the sea
well I still find my dreams
that for me is the only thing that keeps me coming up
to breathe

Underneath this smile I've got miles of broken hearts
and I thought I had it a million times just to be back at the start
well I'm just fine towing the line and waiting on my turn
I'm making the most before I become a ghost, well i still got much to learn

Be careful what you wish for because you just might recieve
much more than you bargained for you can take this little tip from me
I've seen it all tumble down from the top of a hill into the bottom of a hole
and when you're lying at the bottom it's so hard to get back your control

Be careful what you say because your words hold so much weight
you might not even know but your words can decide your very fate
I've seen an angel fall down from the top of the clouds into the bottom of the sea
and when you're lying at the bottom it's so hard to get back up to the top and breathe

I can see it in their eyes that it hurts them deep inside

Tiny little seed

It all starts with a tiny little seed
you dig up a little dirt and then you plant it underneath
it just might grow to be a mighty oak tree
but we’ll have to wait and see
and as it lays there underneath the ground
these little tiny raindrops fall and make a tiny sound
it wants to move towards them and put it’s head right through the ground
you can almost hear it now
now a sprout that penetrates the earth
just like a child speaking their very first word
the more you feed it the more it grows
now you know
we all need more sun
we gotta make light for everyone
get outside and have some fun
share that love with everyone
from that sprout can be so many things
full of life, ancient wisdom, love just bursting at the seams
and we can help it realize its tiny dreams
but we’ve gotta work as a team
so share your knowledge with anyone you can
help them make this world into a better place to stand
and if you see somebody falling lend them a helping hand
let ‘em know you understand

Find my way

just walking along on an old dusty trail
dirt below my feet but there’s wind in my sails
carrying me down to that river below
maybe I’ll find that missing part of my soul
It’s been so long since I’ve seen you now
3,000 miles and I wonder how it all works out
and when I sit and I think of all these things
I see my life ain’t nothing more than a beautiful dream
I’m ready for some things to change
in my life
and maybe you could be just what I need
to help me
find my way

5 am

walking around in a brand new city
overwhelmed and blinded by the light
some say its a shame and others say its a pity
but I’m wishing that I was somewhere else tonight
I can smile though were miles apart
but I hope you never ever question if you’re close to my heart
I need you know that you truly are
the only thing I’m wishing on a shooting star
it took some years for us to open the door
and now that it’s open I just want you more
but you’re so far away out on the western shore
but I think you might be the one I'm searching for
walking around in a brand new city
overwhelmed and blinded by the light
some say its a shame and others say its a pity
but I’m wishing that I was somewhere else tonight
and that’s alright with me if it’s alright with you

Far from home

you used to say that everything was gonna be fine
all we gotta do is just give it some time
but we were so far from home
I’m sorry that you had a bad dream
but it don’t really mean what you’re thinking it means
and we were so far from home
if life’s such a challenge to you
maybe you should make a plan and see it through
because were so far from home
and I didn’t want to leave you behind
but you and I know you werent treating me kind
and we were so far from home
so if you wake up in the middle of the night 
wishing there was someone there to hold you tight
momma ill be gone
you know that i wish you the best
but i just gotta get these things off of my chest
we were so far from home
I never showed you nothing but love
all you ever did was push and shove
and we were so far from home
so if you wake up in the middle of the night
wishing there was someone there to hold you tight
momma ill be gone so far from home
you could have a million lovers by your side
but I’m betting aint one of them ever gonna treat you like i did
so far from home

Falling in love

Lying next to you underneath all of the stars 
Knowing the world could be ours
Like a message sent from above
It feels like I'm falling in love
my heart beat rises and speeds toward the sound
an impenetrable force that surrounds
Sparks start fires and burn the world to the ground it feels like I'm falling in love
lets watch the days go by
side by side 
for the long ride
lets watch the days go by
Electricity strikes me in every nerve 
As I hang on your every last word
Possibilities infinite 
And it feels like I'm falling in love
we walk the desert to find we hold the sea
and each of our hearts lies a key
and if you turn yours ill turn mine
it feels like I’m falling in love with you

Brother

Cold morning knocking on my door
it wasn't me they were looking for
I ain't seen my brother in several days
he must be far away
destroyed my home didn't find a thing
question after question no answer I could bring
one phone call was all that it took
they knew exactly where to look
I quit my job and left my friends
had to get away had to start again
found a new place in an old town that i could call home
everything I had was gone
I know I’ll never thank you but I’d like to say that I can forgive
12 years behind bars well that’s just no way to live
so when you get out I’ll be there with open arms
you’re my brother and I’d never cause you harm

Mine to be

You were born and as you grew
there burned a light in front of you
but now it fades as you grow close
this dying flame of a tired ghost
you sailed the sea in days before
an open world to explore
but now you turn this final stone
sing these words all alone

Now to find beyond the sun
a fading sound melody unsung
and in this peace that you seek
your time has come your day is done
becoming light to return again
one final flight journey to the end
and in this cold just let it go
as death takes hold


singing don’t you cry
dry your eyes i was dying to leave this
all behind
when its my time i will take whats 
mine to be

when I die kick me out to sea
watch those flames, envelop me
with my guitar, portrait of my family
promise me, please promise me

singing don’t you cry
dry your eyes i was dying to leave this
all behind
when its my time i will take whats 
mine to be
