Lyrics

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?

    Liz

     

    Well I’m a witness to my own crime but I can’t seem to find a handle to this case
    I feel compelled to hide my story but the truth is clearly written on my face
    One more shot is all I need there are some who still believe love is the power supreme

    I need a bit of that optimism, cause that belief for me aint nothing but a dream

    And when my boots fill up with muddy water
    Is there anybody out there

    She says it feels, so good to be alive
    She says it feels, so good to be alive

    Found myself standing at the station, I’m waiting for a train that won’t arrive
    And in a sudden revelation I realise this is something like my life

    With all the rain and stormy weather I’ve worn it like a feather in my hat, just like that

    I need a change in my perspective, don’t even need you to tell me that

    And when my eyes fill up with salty water
    I need a dose of that good vibe laughter
    I’m standing right outside her door
    She opens it up I know she'll make it better

    She says it feels, so good to be alive
    She says it feels, so good to be alive
    She says it feels..

    So good to be alive

    You’re born you live and then you die
    So while were here then we must try
    To make the most of what we've got
    I’ve got you
    That is quite a lot.

    Icicles

    Cinders burning, ashes into the wind

    Earth is turning, the end is where I begin

    Got icicles within

    Eyes are so wide, open wide like the sky

    Waves are rushing, rushing in with the tide

    Got icicles inside

    Refrain:

    If you lay here tonight

    Will that make everythin, alright?

    But even if you stay, there are no guarantees

    that you can make

    Chorus:

    I feel these words they keep me here

    I choose to say them loud and clear

    I build my world to keep me sane

    This is not artificial pain

    I’ll find a way to calm my fears

    Tell me ‘bout the loneliness

     

    Cinders burning, ashes into my skin

    Earth is turning, both outside and within

    When you leave

    Icicles begin

    Refrain:

    If I lay here tonight

    Would that make everythin, alright?

    Cause even if I stay, there are no guarantees

    that I can make

    Chorus:

    I feel these words they keep me here

    I choose to say them loud and clear

    I build my world to keep me sane

    We’re not feelin artificial pain

    I’ll find a way to calm my fears

    Tell me ‘bout the loneliness

    Refrain:

    If I lay here tonight

    Would that make everythin, alright?

    Cause even if I stay, there are no guarantees

    that I can make

    Chorus:

    I feel these words they keep me here

    I choose to say them loud and clear

    I build my world to keep me sane

    This is not artificial pain

    I’ll find a way to calm my fears

    A way to calm my fears

    I feel these words they keep me here

    When I choose to say them loud and clear

    I build my world to keep me sane

    This is not artificial pain

    I’ll find a way to calm my fears

    Tell me ‘bout the loneliness

    Do you feel it more or less?

    If you feel alone, say yes

    Tell me ‘bout the loneliness

    The Path

    I 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, as the darkness fades away

    Rain will fall on me one day, but it won’t be this day

    Refrain:

    And I know that I’ll get over this in time

    Until then I will walk the path of a man that’s in denial

    Chorus:

    Cause I, I

    I can’t let go, I can’t let go

    I see your face through the window pane, smiling back at me

    Photographs of a seaside trip, waves rolling endlessly

    And I remember your hand in mine, endless summer days

    And then you asked me when we grow old, will it stay this way

    And I know that I’ll look back on this someday

    Until then I will walk the path of a man who dreams awake

    Chorus:

    Cause I, I

    I can’t let go, I can’t let go

    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 
    Carried by the winds of change, I want to feel that way again 

    Chorus: 
    I want to believe, but I've been ripped apart and torn asunder 
    Struck by lighting and by thunder 
    I want to believe, but I've been set alight and burned alive, this soul may never be revived 
    I want to believe, tell me how to heal this broken heart and I will show you all my scars 
    I want to believe, I will say it again…I want to believe. 

    Daylight, let me rest my weary bones, I think its time to come home 
    Feels like, it's time to shed the darkness and this heavy load 
    It's been too long 
    I think I need another plan 
    So next time Ill be a better man

    Fall into Place

    Days into weeks, weeks into months, months into years 
    Seasons will change, some things remain 
    There will be joy, there will be pain 

    That’s how it goes 
    That’s how it goes 

    I light my last cigarette 

    Presently it feels like a long climb up that hill 
    Evidently, I have much to learn still 
    Frequently reminding myself 

    I’ve been here before 
    I will see it through 
    I need faith in myself like my faith in you 

    Chorus: 
    Yes I believe it 
    Though I have not seen it 
    I know this road will 
    Lead me back home again 
    I’m still alive though there’s tears on my face 
    I still believe 

    Things will all fall into place 

    Days into weeks, weeks into months, months into years 
    People will change, people will grow 
    People will come, people will go 

    Nobody knows 
    To where it all flows 

    I smoke my last cigarette 

    Presently it feels like a long climb up that hill 
    Evidently, I have much to learn still 
    Frequently reminding myself 

    It’ll come to pass 
    If it’s meant to be 
    I’m amazed 

    By your faith in me 

    Chorus: 
    Yes I believe it 
    Though I have not seen it 
    I know this road will 
    Lead me back home again 
    I’m still alive though there’s tears on my face 
    I still believe 

    Things will all fall into place 

    Yes I believe it 
    Though I have not seen it 
    I know this road will 
    Lead me back home again 
    I’m still alive though there’s tears on my face 
    I still believe 

    Things will all fall into place 

    Will fall into place 

    Things will fall into place 

    Things will fall into place 

    I’m still alive, tears on my face 

    But I still believe 

    Things will all fall into place

    The One

    People, they may go

    For life offers no guarantees I know

    But time will, not erase

    The memories of sunlight, upon your face

    Sometimes I feel I’m burning inside

    When in the deepest part of me I know

     

    Chorus:

     

    Over land and over seas

    Gonna send my soul where you may be

    Over oceans and over skies

    My faith is strong until I die

    And if you lift me up to never fall

    Then I will be the man that you call

     

    The one

     

    People, they will change

    And times are guaranteed not to remain the same

    Sometimes I feel I tremble inside

    When there is no place left for me to hide

     

    Chorus:

     

    Over land and over seas

    Gonna send my soul where you may be

    Over oceans and over skies

    My faith is strong until I die

    And if you lift me up to never fall

    Then I will be the man that you call

     

    The one

     

     

    Bridge:

     

    Its anybody’s guess where we may end up

    When the road has not yet been revealed to us

    I pray to God to help me through my anger

    I feel the anger, when I’m not with her

    I feel the anger……….

     

    Sometimes I feel I’m burning inside

    When in the deepest part of me

    Yes in the deepest part of me

    In the deepest part of me I know that….

     

    Chorus:

     

    Over land and over seas

    Gonna send my soul where you may be

    Over oceans and over skies

    My faith is strong until I die

    And if you lift me up to never fall

    Then I will be the man that you call

     

    The one

     

    Yes I will be the one

    I will be the one

    I will be the one
