  • 03:32 Story Lyrics With You

    Sometimes, you close your heart, feel no more
    It may seem right
    To burn your bridges, seal your doors

    Sometimes
    Still need love and understanding
    A safe landing for you
    And your heart

    Refrain:
    If I say yeah
    Will you say (yeah)
    If I say yeah
    Will you say (yeah)

    Chorus:
    I thought I was strong
    Livin it free
    Out on my own, no one but me
    Now all the walls they come tumbling down
    down over me

    I thought that I was all done needing someone to hold
    Suddenly I’m spinnin out of control
    All of the walls they’ve come tumbling down
    I don’t know what to do
    I think I felt it with you…
    I felt it with you

    Sometimes, you close your heart, feel no more
    It may seem right (yeah)
    To draw up your bridges and seal your doors

    Sometimes
    Still need love and understanding
    A safe landing for you
    And your heart

    Refrain:
    If I say yeah
    Will you say (yeah)

    Chorus:
    I thought I was strong
    Livin it free
    Out on my own, there was no one but me
    Now all the walls they come tumbling down
    down over me

    I thought that I was all done needing someone to hold
    suddenly I’m spinnin out of control
    All of the walls they’ve come tumbling down
    I don’t know what to do

    I think I felt it with you…
    I felt it with you
    I felt it with you yeah

    With You

    I felt it with you

    I felt it with you 

    I feel it with you

    I feel it with you



  • 03:49 Story Lyrics Hangover

    I’m in a daze
    Lost in a haze
    Must be one of those days
    I can’t make heads nor tails
    Kinda wishin that I was somebody else

    Leave a message there’s nobody here
    The answering message rings so clear
    Gonna try to style it out
    Make em believe I can leave em without a doubt

    Refrain:
    But can you erase, tears as they race
    From your eyes and down your face
    Do you wanna be, somebody new
    If it makes it all better?

    Chorus:
    Well, this hangover
    Its sweet and it’s comforting
    Better than remembering those things
    I said, things I should've said to you leftover

    Like a hangover

    It’s killing me right now
    Remembering why and how, I missed the chance
    To say those words to you

    I should’ve said those words to you

    I feel the blues
    From my head to my shoes
    So much to lose
    How can I possibly make a stand
    when I got myself tangled in a noose

    Leave a message there’s nobody here
    Her answering message rings so clear
    Ill style it out
    But it now leaves me without a doubt

    Refrain:
    That she has erased
    The smile on her face
    As she turned to walk away
    Cause maybe she wants to be
    Somebody new

    Without you

    Chorus:

    Bridge:

    Yes, I think it’s clear by now there ain't
    no master plan
    And that I ain't no superman

    Yes, if it’s true that all is fair in
    Love and war
    Then I should’ve just said the words
    before you walked out the door

    But instead I said: nothing 

    Instead I said, nothing...

    Nothing.

    Chorus:

    …… Would it have changed your point of view

    I don’t know
    I don't know,

    Do you?

     

  • 03:01 Story Lyrics The Path

    See your face as you turn to me, in the dying light
    You’ve never been more beautiful, than you are tonight
    And in your eyes I see the truth, darkness fades away
    Rain fall on me one day, but it won’t be this day

    Refrain:

    And I know that I’ll get over this in time
    But until then I will walk the path,
    a man that’s in denial

    Chorus:
    Cause I, I
    I can’t let go, I can’t let go
    Singing I, I
    I can’t let go, I can’t let go

    See your face through the window pane, smiling back at me
    Photographs of a seaside trip, waves rolling endlessly
    I remember your hand in mine, endless summer days
    And then you ask me when we grow old, will it stay this way?

    Refrain:
    And I know that I’ll look back on this someday
    But until then I will walk the path,
    a man who dreams awake

    Chorus:
    Cause I, I
    I can’t let go, I can’t let go
    Singing I, I

    I can’t let go, I can’t let go
    I can’t let go, I can’t let go
    I can’t let go, I can’t let go

     

  • 04:09 Story Lyrics Darkness

    You’ve got to know the darkness before you know the light
    You gotta get through the darkness, before you see the sunlight


    Show the face I know, I know you wanna see

    But I can’t always be the best, I know I wanna be
    Open hearted moments, living in the now
    See the walls around me watch them as they come down

    Refrain:
    I'm just a mad believer, walkin through the years
    I'm just a mad believer following the tracks of my tears

    Chorus:
    You’ve got to know the darkness before you know the light
    You gotta get through the darkness, before you see the sunlight

    Holding on to memories pictures in a frame
    Holding on to memories, fire & the rain
    Broken hearted moments, you're lost in the dark
    When the soul inside you, is waitin for a spark

    Refrain:
    I’m just a man believin, followin the years
    I’m just a man believin, walking through the tracks of my tears

    Chorus:
    You’ve got to know the darkness before you know the light
    You gotta get through the darkness, before you see the sunlight

    Instrumental:

    You’ve got to know the darkness before you know the light
    You gotta get through the darkness, before you see the sunlight

    You’ve got to know the darkness before you know the light
    You gotta get through the darkness, before you see the sunlight

    Sunlight
    Sunlight

  • 03:29 Story Lyrics I Want to Believe

    Daylight, let me rest my weary head…on your bed

    Feels like, I should replace this sorrow with some joy instead

    Refrain:

    Carried by the winds of change

    I want to feel that way again

    Chorus:

    I want to believe, ripped apart, torn asunder

    Struck by thunder

    I want to believe, set alight, burned alive, will I be revived

    I want to believe, tell me how to heal this broken heart

    I want to believe, I will say it again…I want to believe.


    Daylight, let me rest my weary bones, I think it's time to come home

    Feels like it's time to shed the darkness and that heavy load

    It's been too long

    Refrain:

    I think I need another plan

    So next time I'll be a better man

    Chorus:

    Instrumental

    Chorus:

    I want to believe 7x

    Oh, I want to believe

    Yes I wanna believe

    Make me believe
