Lyrics

Comfort Zone​

Wander away from

Your hillside and see what you’ve been

Missing all along

 

They short changed you my good man

When they told you it was

Us and them

 

It’s never been you and them

It’s not between you and me

There’s only one human race

Look around and see

 

Push your comfort zone

 

Down this road there ain’t that much

You can control the signs are such

Hard things to read

 

Today there is a lot at stake

So whatever you do don’t hesitate 

To explore something new

Another point of view

 

Open your eyes

Look far and wide

At what’s different from you

 

Push your comfort zone

 

Stay - don’t go for a while

You never know you might find a smile

Stay and talk into the night

Give it a chance it might turn out right

 

Push your comfort zone

Off The Rails​

​There was just no shelter

No respite from your third degree

All I ever wanted

Was for you to love me

Sometimes life just goes that way

Life ain't no fairy tale

But I haven't lost my way

I'm just a little off the rails

Why so sensitive?

Why such a heavy hand 

I don't understand

When you walk in a room

As a child and if feels like doom

When it feels like doom

When things are that way

You learn to tuck your tale

Sometimes life just goes that way​

It ain't no fairy tale

I haven't lost my way

I'm just a little off the rails

When things are that way

You learn to tuck your tale

And run away

Just a little off the rails

Sometimes it just goes that way

It ain't no fairy tale

I haven't lost my way

I'm just a little off the rails​

Same Child​

​Right beside me

You were there all along

Here inside me

Is where the past has gone

 

These are the hands

Of the same child

That played in the dirt

And ran so wild

And when I look at you

I see the same eyes

Innocent and true

I see the same child

 

I can see clearly

Like never before

And I love you dearly

Now and forever more

 

These are hands

Of the same child

That played in the dirt

And ran so wild

And the girl that I see in you

Has got the same eyes

Innocent and true

I see the same child

 

These are the hands

Of the same child

That played in the dirt

And you know we ran so wild

When I look at you

I see the same eyes

Innocent and true

I see the same child

Winter Sun​

​It’s all on the floor

Tell me where am I to begin

I'll stay here even though

It’s dark like it's the end

 

You know that I can't leave

Though cold and numb 

And mostly frozen

You know what I believe

There’s a Winter Sun

And it will come

 

And the sun shines down

I am told

But it's far outside this world

Where things are bright and cold

 

You know that I can't leave

Though broken 

Though I get lonesome

You know what I believe 

There's a Winter Sun

Seldom spoken

 

And no one else need know

Just what you hold

So dear in your hand

 

You know that I won't leave

Though cold and numb

And mostly frozen

You know that I believe

In a Winter Sun

And it will come

 

And though I may grieve

And tears may come

And wounds stay open

You know I still believe

In a Winter Sun

And it will come

 

The World Through Your Hands​

​The power really was in your hand

All along but you did not understand

So young and so blind

When we look back what will we find?

 

That the world fell through our hands

In spite of our demands

In spite of all our good plans

The world fell through our hands

 

Turn back the Catherine Wheel

How’d you look back then?

How'd you feel?

So young such bad eyes

So smart so unwise

 

To let the world fall through your hands

Despite your demands

Despite all your beautiful plans

The world fell through your hands

 

But I've had all I can take

All that I can stand and now I

With so much at stake

Vow that I will learn from my younger days

Still always someone with young eyes

Wiser than mine

 

The world fell through our hands

Despite all our demands

And in spite of all our beautiful plans

We let the world fall through our hands

Life That I Know

Hallelujah said the boy who lost it all

I had more than any man could use

More than I could hold

I forgot to take things slow

 

There are things that I can’t change

Time will rearrange all this

I’ve got to soothe my spent soul

And live the life that I know

The life that I know

 

You can make believe

If it’s easier that way to carry on

But seasons will come and go

So will the answers I know

 

There are things that I can’t change

Time will rearrange

I’ve got to soothe my spent soul

And live the life that I know

 

There are things that I can’t change

And time will rearrange

I’ve got to soothe my spent soul

And live the life that I know

 

There are things that I can’t change

And time is so strange

I need a hand to hold

And just live the life that I know

The life that I know

Core

There are no words

For what you mean to me

And I think about you

Endlessly

 

In your shell

I mean you well

 

I went about it all wrong

It’s not about being strong

Forget what we’ve learned

And out of all of this sadness

Maybe we could find love

 

I don’t know what it’s like

I don’t know what you’ve been through

I might not know

Just what you need me to do

But I love you

More and more

From deep within

From inside the core

 

From the start to the end

You will always be my friend

Just give me a clue

What should I do?

 

Maybe I should go

And things will turn around

But you need to know

You are not alone

 

I don’t know what it’s like

I don’t know what you’ve been through

I’m not really sure

Just what you need me to do

But I love you

More and more

From deep within

From inside the core

 

Whatever you need

I’m here if you need

 

I don’t know what it’s like

I don’t know what you’ve been through

I’m not really sure

Just what you need me to do

But I love you more and more

From deep within

From inside the core

 

Dandelion

You can have any thing you want

You can close your eyes

You can feel inside

For just whatever you want

 

I know you feel just a little scared

Just a little maybe

Like things are about to come undone

But hey trust me

 

You can blow on a dandelion

Maybe love will make it fine

Because love is all we ever need

It’s all we ever need

 

You can have it anyway I know

You can hide your eyes

You can tell me lies

If that’s the way to go

 

But love is all we really need

I imagine you and me need a remedy

 

You can blow on a dandelion

Maybe love will make it fine

Because love is all we ever need

Love is all we really need 

 

You can blow on a dandelion

Maybe love will make it fine

Because love can be a remedy

It’s all we really need

 

New Road

There’s a place that I’m thinking

Which I’ve never been

It's a place I’d like to go

 

While there’s time

I’m just thinking

To myself

And these stars that I’m below

 

There are things worth seeing

Beautiful things hidden from view

And I see all the people

Who just don’t know how to break through

 

Will you walk with me down a new road?

One so hidden really you’d never know

We’ll let the thieves lighten our load

And learn to feel it as we go

 

Well the world

It's just turning

All around me

And the signs you can’t ignore

 

And for all

There is around me

I have all I need

And I need nothing more

 

Will you walk with me down a new road?

One so hidden really you’d never know

We’ll let the thieves lighten our load

And learn to feel it as we go

 

And on the side of this new road

Lie all our memories in a row

We’ll take the best ones that we have known

And to the rest

We’ll just let go

Will you walk with me down a new road?

 

Ounce of Pride

There’s another side of me

I wish you could only see

Didn’t know love could move that fast

 

I’ll tell you what I would give if I could go

Right back the start to let you know

 

That there’s not an ounce of pride

On this side

Anymore

 

You reached back out to me

In ways I could not foresee

The reasons will become known

 

Every memory has it's home

And I know that I have really grown

 

There’s not an ounce of pride

On this side

Anymore

 

Oh I’ll tell you what I would give if I could go

Right back to where we were you know

I’d apologize for my pride and go

So Much Better

You told a story to no one but me

You stood in the door so long

Too afraid to leave

 

Some people got eyes but they still don't see

Some people get good at chaining you up

Without a lock or key

 

I see you cry

And wait around

For things to get better

Well I think you're just tired now

 

Why should you care

Because I've found

You're just so much better off without them now

 

You know I take my time with the things that I say

Some words are just like walls

They're meant to stand in your way

 

You know I used to try

I used to wait around

For things to get better

Well I think I'm just tired now

 

Why should you care

Because I’ve found

You’re just so much better off without them now

 

We used to try

We used to wait around

For things to get better

Well I think we’re just tired now

Why should we care

Because I’ve found

We’re just so much better off without them now

The Rain Keeps Pouring

They could sell you something cheap

And pretend they get your point

They could give you something real

They’ll always disappoint

 

Have you ever felt alone

While surrounded by your friends?

Always knew you’d make it far

But you miss home every now and then

 

Well I just hold tight to my guitar

And write about the day that we had to part

And the band is touring

Not a cloud in the sky and the rain keeps pouring

 

And at night when you’re trying to sleep

With the demons in your bed

And the hell they put you through

And the voices in your head

 

And the world’s such a mess

And your heart just feels withdrawn

You were everything to me

And now you’re just gone

 

Well I hold tight to my guitar

And write about the day that we had to part

And the band is touring

Not a cloud in the sky and the rain keeps pouring

 

And the things I used to flaunt

Have become the things I despise

Where to go, I’ll turn inside

Let the good and bad collide

 

I’m telling you what works for me

Doesn’t mean it’ll work for you

I don’t know

But this is all I can do

 

I just hold tight to my guitar

And write about the day that we had to part

And the band is touring

Not a cloud in the sky and the rain keeps pouring

 

I hold tight to my guitar

And write about the day that we had to part

And the band is touring

I miss you so much and the rain…

 

Two Leaves 

You go north and I'll go south

We’ll meet back here when we figure this out

No tears

Because to me

 

We are two leaves

At the beck and call of the wind it seems

Here comes another breeze

To take you away from me

 

When I think of you

I will always think of the good things that you do

When you think of me

When you think of me

Think of us

 

And think of two leaves

At the beck and call of the wind it seems

Here comes another breeze

To take you away from me

 

Because we are two leaves

That fell from the mother tree

Hold tight to me

Hold tight to me

 

Sometimes forever

Can feel so real and so right at the time

You and I we should know better

We should know better 

Because we are two leaves

At the beck and call of the wind it seems

Here comes another breeze

To take you away from me

 

We are two leaves

Straight from the mother tree

Hold tight to me

Hold tight to me

 

Here comes another breeze

Under The Sun

I’d say we’d last

I’d say forever

That we’ll beat the odds

But I know, but I know

 

We’re just like everyone else

Trying trying

To keep this love going on and on

Under the sun

 

It will take work

That’s what they say

To stay afloat

But who are they anyway

 

We’re not the only ones

Trying, trying

To keep this ship sailing on and on

Under the sun

 

If everyone is so full of love

I really wonder

Why no one can seem to find enough

I really wonder

 

Many will fall

Around us like embers

You say we’ll beat the odds

I know but baby remember

 

We’re just like everyone else here

Trying trying

To keep this love going on and on

Under the sun

 

We’re not the only ones

Trying trying

To keep this ship sailing on and on

Under the sun

 

If everyone is so full of love

Then I really wonder

Why no one can seem to find enough

I really wonder

 

Where I Stand

Do you know what you want 

Take what you need anytime you want

 

Just a girl

Just someone I need

Slipping farther down

And out of reach

 

Well I will go where you go

            Will you walk with me down a new road

Where all you feel is all you know

            One so hidden you'd never know

You want to know where I stand

            Come on take my hand

I only want to be your man

            Now you know where I stand

 

Well the fear it’s ringing

You see the signs but there's no where to turn

 

Tell me what you love 

Because it’s everywhere you look

But you've been wrong before

But not now

 

I want to go where you are

         Will you walk with me down a new road

Anywhere no matter how near or far

            One so hidden you'd never know

You want to know where I stand

            Come on take my hand

I only want to be your man

            Well now you know where I stand

Well I will go where you go

            Will you walk with me down a new road

Where all you feel is all you know

            One so hidden you'd never know

You want to know where I stand

            Come on take my hand

I only want to be your man

            Now you know where I stand
