ALBUM: WISHIN’ WELL

Being Young
I wanna be young, I wanna write a song, about the next good thing to come along
I wanna take her by the hand down through the sand, sweet love until the sunrise.
truth be told you never know if you’re all washed up if you never grow, Take a shot, or let em’ fly, being young is just a state of mind. So hurry up and take you’re time. Cause being young is just a state of mind.

Everyday we get closer, so give it what you got. Well you only get one shot.

And I’m not just gonna be pulled along, by a broke down beat I’m gonna get me some. I’m gonna take each moment as it comes. Until I’m six feet underground.

I wanna be young, I wanna play dumb, like when I was home late and said you never called, but the smoke in my hair and my eyes gave it all away. Truth be told you always let me slide, I love you for it cause that’s the reason why I’m the way that I am cause that’s who I’m supposed to be. Being young is the closest thing to free.

Everyday we get closer, so give it what you got. Well you only get one shot.

And I’m not just gonna be pulled along, by a broke down beat I’m gonna get me some. I’m gonna take each moment as it comes. Until I’m six feet underground.

Bridge: I feel your light shining on me, when I close my eyes. And when the world throws it’s worst at me, I’ll improvise. You make your way through my troubled mind, with ease. I’ll be the one to break your fall, just wait and see.

And I’m not just gonna be pulled along, by a broke down beat I’m gonna get me some. I’m gonna take each moment as it comes. Until I’m six feet underground.

 


Wishin’ Well
Oh my how about that, the road turned south and we lost the track
thats just a part of the plan, so nod your head if you understand
well have you heard the news? Same old truth but he got a new groove well
you don’t have to complicate it yeah
set it forget it.
you don’t have to orchestrate it
just trying to be free here now.

Cause I ain’t got no story I’ve got nothing to tell
and I’m down to the dregs of my wishin’ well
And I won’t let you down if you just lift me up.
you better pour out your past and refill your cup

Some get high
others stay low
tomorrow’s addiction
thats todays new cure
but I won’t be bought I won’t be sold tomorrow’s looking better than the rear mirror
I’ve gotta let it go gotta let it breath, shed my pain and make my peace
you don’t have to complicate it yeah
set it forget it.
you don’t have to orchestrate it
just trying to be free here now.

Cause I ain’t got no story I’ve got nothing to tell
and I’m down to the dregs of my wishin’ well
And I won’t let you down if you just lift me up.
so we drink to the past and refill our cup

throw me a line I’m sinking down inside my own wishin’ well
and it won’t be long before I drown
so someone won’t you lift me up.

 


How do we say goodbye
Is it all in my head? Well I swear I ain’t changed or is that what went wrong?
was it something I said? Or is this what you meant when you said let’s move on.
Well I want you to know… I ain’t going no where.

Take time, get it off your shoulders, rewind we’ll start it up again, Don’t worry about the he said she said shit, that’s only in you head. I guess I never expected you were going to leave me and then the night turned over, So how do we say goodbye? well it don’t come easy.

Can we just make amends? well I’ve made my peace and I ain’t looking back
So tell me where does it end? Your written in my soul, and my flesh. And I ain’t going to quite. Till my dying breath.

Take time, get it off your shoulders, rewind we’ll start it up again, Don’t worry about the he said she said shit, that’s only in you head. I guess I never expected you were going to leave me and then the night turned over, So how do we say goodbye? well it don’t come easy.

Bridge: Well my words can get you gambling, my odds are never good, my love will leave you rambling, well I’d change it if I… if I could.

 


Life is a photograph
We all need just a push or a shove every once in a while, a few small steps and pretty soon you’ll be walking for miles so lean on the trust, the trust that I’m providing and won’t you be calm, just let it happen. Life always seems is gonna set you up for challenge but don’t look away just take it on with balance. So strike you’re pose, and if you start to stumble well love will be the mortar that’s gonna keep you strong and humble.

So take good care, of one another.
Be prepared, to follow through.
Your greatest moment comes when your back’s against the wall,
and when it comes around, you won’t have to choose.
you know what to do
For a moment, just own it
Remember how we used to laugh
Breathe through it, you can do this
Life is just a photograph

Bridge: Everyday that you move, Every way that you start, all the bridges you burn, everything that you are
All the people we meet, you know we traveled so far, and all the lessons you learn, every fall leaves a scar. And those scars are there to remind us, not what went wrong, but what went right, and there to implore us to soldier on, as we shoot for them stars.

We all need just a push or a shove every once in a while, a few small steps and pretty soon you’ll be walking for miles so lean on the trust, the trust that I’m providing and won’t you be calm, just let it happen. Life always seem is gonna set you up for challenge but don’t look away just take it on with balance. So strike you’re pose, and if you start to stumble well love will be the mortar that’s gonna keep you strong and humble.

For a moment, just own it
Remember how we used to laugh
Breathe through it, you can do this
Life is just a photograph

 


Playing with Fire
Come on out to play she’s gonna wind you up now.
Angel used to be so straight, but now she’s all turned around.
She said don’t play me for a fool because you think I walk alone
You might strip me of my faith, but you could never steal my soul

round and round she used to go, and if the devils on her side she swear she didn’t know, and if she playing with fire how come she’s so cold, she’s so cold.

Danny’s walking on the edge, you know he’s hanging by a thread
don’t even think about the one’s he love well there trying to ground him
well there down upon there knees but he’s to dizzy to see there all just praying to god that the devil unhands him.
Well then he find himself back where he began, messed up feeling tough wheel in his hand, all his actions explicit, he’s stumbling and tripping, like a walking exhibit of over the limit. Danny you don’t want to add to the mess a wife and two kids you should be so blessed, so close your eyes and let your body rest, but the engine turned before he even second guessed it.

Round and round he used to go, and if the devils on his side well he swears he didn’t know cause if he’s playing with fire how come he’s so cold, he so cold.

Round and round we used to go, and if the devils on our side well we swear we didn’t know cause if we’re playing with fire how come we’re so cold, we’re so cold.

 


Only a Verse
Listen close girl I’m telling you we’ve only got time. So speak your mind…
Don’t keep it bottled up inside, when it rise, realize, you can’t hide behind those eyes. Telling the truth in, all that you do and, all that you’ve done, now it’s begun
but it’s only a verse, not even a song.

It was only a dream, but I wanted it more. When I realized I lost you I fell apart.
It was only a moment, but I waited too long to tell you I loved you cause now you’ve gone. It was only a verse not even a song.

It’s been a while but I remember you like you never left, so what comes next makes me feel unsure. when we pass on the street you just shuffle your feet you never look at me, that’s not familiar.

Cause I, I’ve made my mistakes, well I’ll keep paying for.
You, leave it all up to fate, nobody’s love run’s straight, but I’m still thankful for it

It was only a dream, but I wanted it more. When I realized I lost you I fell apart.
It was only a moment, but I waited too long to tell you I loved you cause now you’ve gone. It was only a dream, but I wanted it more. If you come back to hurt me, I won’t run. It was only a moment, at first, should have told you I loved you for better or worse. Now it’s a song, no longer a verse.

 


Millie’s song
We’ll go racing through strawberry fields, in the middle of the pouring rain. You look back but I am right there by your side girl, and it’s always gonna be that way.

I never like to think it through, cause then I’d have to face the truth, I could never get over you, so let’s just live for right now.

She lifts me up. You know exactly how it feels. Like nothing else matters in the world, like the only thing that’s real. every time she wakes me up.

She’s not looking for conversation, she ‘s not trying to make a deal, she just giving me confirmation, your love and company is all I want to feel.

I never like to think it through, cause then I’d have to face the truth, I could never get over you, so let’s just live for right now.

She lifts me up. You know exactly how it feels. Like nothing else matters in the world, like the only thing that’s real. every time she wakes me, oh she lifts me up.

It’s not yet dawn and I’m so tired now, but one look gives it all away. You close your eyes and you’ll be sorry boy. Cause every day you wake up is a good, good day.

I never like to think it through, cause then I’d have to face the truth, I could never get over you, so let’s just live for right now. So quickly years have gone, pretty soon we’ll say so long, my tears turn into songs and every one will sing along.

She lifts me up. You know exactly how it feels. Like nothing else matters in the world, like the only thing that’s real. every time she wakes me, oh she lifts me up.

 


Easy Come High
Easy come high, easy go low, make a little change. Let it grow.
Easy be young we soon grow old , easy to love, hard to let go
Easy come spring easy go fall, when the cold nights come I don’t mind at all
Easy come night easy go day, easy this life slips away.

I keep dreaming when I’m not sleeping, I’ve got to know are you dreaming to
Lately I’ve been hiding my feelings and I won’t hold back this love for you.

Easy come high, easy go low, make a little change. Let it grow.
Easy be young we soon grow old , easy to love, hard to let go

It’s hard to let go..

Easy come spring easy go fall, when the cold nights come I don’t mind at all
Easy come night easy go day, easy this life slips away.

I keep dreaming when I’m not sleeping, I’ve got to know are you dreaming to
Lately I’ve been hiding my feelings and I won’t hold back this love for you.

Easy come high, easy go low, make a little change. Let it grow.
Easy be young we soon grow old , easy to love, hard to let go
Easy come spring easy go fall, when the cold nights come I don’t mind at all
Easy come night easy go day, easy this life slips away.

Well It slips away.

 


Emaline
The Moment comes and then it’s gone.
I’ve waited here for so damn long
If I could fall asleep
I’d be waiting in my dreams

The storm is raging just outside
darkness hides the full moon sky
we bathe in candle light
and await the rising tide

But I can feel the warmth
from the fire in your eyes
and I can see the flame yah it guides me through the night
and if you stay with me I’m forever satisfied
Emaline. Emaline.

Pull me close so I might steal
The pain and hurt that you conceal
I’ll hold you in my arms
till the pain and hurt is gone.

But I can feel the warmth
from the fire in your eyes
and I can see the flame yah it guides me through the night
and if you stay with me I’m forever satisfied
Emaline. Emaline.

Girl I’m on my knees and the world is flying by
so take my hand, hold on tight
