Hopeless

 

Silence has rendered me hopeless

I’m tired of talking to myself about

All the things run through my head day by day

Can you listen to what I have to say to you

 

Chorus:

I call out your name no one can hear

I have picked up what you left of me

I walk in the rain to hide my tears

To masquerade this pathetic misery

Cause you rendered me… hopeless

 

I want you to think before you speak

Don’t say things you don’t mean

My body’s weak my heart is sore

I can’t sleep I never felt like this I

 

Chorus:

I call out your name no one can hear

I have picked up what you left of me

I walk in the rain to hide my tears

To masquerade this pathetic misery

Cause you rendered me… hopeless

 

Yesterday’s dreams are today’s disappointments

It’s been that way one too many times

All the courage I’ve conjured up inside myself

To open up my soul to you

 

Chorus:

I call out your name no one can hear

I have picked up what you left of me

I walk in the rain to hide my tears

To masquerade this pathetic misery

Cause you rendered me… hopeless

 

I call out your name no one can hear

I have picked up what you left of me

I walk in the rain to hide my tears

To masquerade this pathetic misery

Cause you rendered me… hopeless

 

Disappear

 

I feel a chill run up my back

You walk into the room

You kind of leave me lying here

Wondering what I’d do

There’s a storm building in me

It doesn’t make a sound

You never thought you’d hear it

Well hear it now

 

Chorus:

Hey, saying I love you

(If I could you know I would)

I’d like to think it’s understood

Hey, saying I love you

(If these words all disappear)

Now tell me then how then would you hear it

 

You got this place down in my soul

That you can call your own

You got this voice that speaks to me

Even when I’m all alone

You may never know it if I left it up to fate

So come on take a hold

The storm’s about to break

 

Chorus:

Hey, saying I love you

(If I could you know I would)

I’d like to think it’s understood

Hey, saying I love you

(If these words all disappear)

Now tell me then how then would you hear it

 

Hey, saying I love you

(If I could you know I would)

I’d like to think it’s understood

Hey, saying I love you

(If these words all disappear)

Now tell me then how then would you hear it

 

Hey, saying I love you

(If I could you know I would)

I’d like to think it’s understood

Hey, saying I love you

(If these words all disappear)

Now tell me then how then would you hear it

 

Livin’ A Lie

 

There’s a girl that I once knew, hidden in the dark

Away from all the dangers separated by the heart

She never once complained was a happy little soul

Bottled all her dreams till she was ready to explode

One day she flew through the open window

They said you’ll come back

She said sorry I don’t think so because

 

Chorus:

Sometimes we please in a sacrificial way

Sometimes we heal a little every day

Sometimes we need just to get away

Sometimes we feel

Like we’re living a lie yeah, like we’re living a lie yeah, like we’re living a lie

 

Then she was alone for the first time in her life

She’d given up everything she knew, hey

The innocence of freedom was drowning in a pool

Of reality so cold, there was no one there to hold, and it’s true

 

Chorus:

Sometimes we please in a sacrificial way

Sometimes we heal a little every day

Sometimes we need just to get away

Sometimes we feel

Like we’re living a lie yeah, like we’re living a lie yeah, like we’re living a lie

 

She cried herself to sleep

Sometimes we feel - the secrets that we keep

Sometimes we feel - that god has turned his head

We don’t know why but

 

Chorus:

Sometimes we please in a sacrificial way

Sometimes we heal a little every day

Sometimes we need just to get away

Sometimes we feel

Like we’re living a lie yeah, like we’re living a lie yeah, like we’re living a lie

 

Hey Mister

 

Hanging on a corner down Main Street

Waiting on my friends to come around

There’s a blue suit here, he’s hassling me

And it’s really bringing me down

Keep my hands in my pockets it’s better that way

Don’t want no trouble tonight

Seems like everywhere I go these days

The world ain’t treating me right

 

Chorus:

Mister size me up, mister look right through me

Mister know it all, like you really knew me

Mister irrelevant, you got nothing to say

Hey mister, stay out of my way

 

Got this feeling no one cares, is anybody listening

Go ahead man just stop and stare

You don’t have a clue who I am

 

Full chorus:

Mister size me up, mister look right through me

Mister know it all, like you really knew me

Mister irrelevant, you got nothing to say

Hey mister, stay out of my way

Mister looking at me, yeah I’m talking to you

Mister I don’t know what this world’s coming to

Mister three martinis at the end of the day

Hey mister

 

I know I belong some place

Take a good look at my face

I know I belong somewhere

 

Full chorus +:

Mister size me up, mister look right through me

Mister know it all, like you really knew me

Mister irrelevant, you got nothing to say

Hey mister, stay out of my way

Mister looking at me, yeah I’m talking to you

Mister I don’t know what this world’s coming to

Mister three martinis at the end of the day

Hey mister

Hey hey mister, mister inhibition, mister doubt

Mister you don’t know what you’re talking about

Mister second guesser, mister oh some day

Hey mister, stay out of my way

Stay out of my way

 

Dig in Deep

 

Dig in deep, pull out the fire

Dig in deep, pull out the fire

 

Sarah got dressed in the morning,

pieced together what was left of her mind

Done by the hands that prayed forgiveness, just one too many times

Left the laundry on the bathroom floor

Left a note on the bedroom door

I won’t be around for you to hurt no more

 

Chorus:

She gonna dig in deep, pull out the fire, burning in her head

Dig in deep, pull out the fire, burning in her bed

Dig in deep, pull out the fire, she’s hangin’ by a thread

Dig in deep, pull out the fire, pull out the fire

 

She’s a face of a child who lost a candy through the crack in her life

She’s all the woman that a man could want hey, hey, that’s right

She’s a wrecking ball on the back side swing looking for a place to crash

Ah she used to know who she was one time,

now she’s trying to get it back

 

Chorus:

She gonna dig in deep, pull out the fire, burning in her head

Dig in deep, pull out the fire, burning in her bed

Dig in deep, pull out the fire, she’s hangin’ by a thread

Dig in deep, pull out the fire, pull out the fire

 

She’s a sinner standing naked at the heavenly gates

Trying hard to make excuses in the end

Says all of these emotions live inside of my heart

Come on, pull the right strings, I might play the right part

 

You gotta dig in

Dig in deep, pull out the fire

Gotta dig in

Dig in deep, pull out the fire

Gotta dig in

Dig in deep, pull out the fire

Gotta dig in

Dig in deep, pull out the fire

 

Dig in deep, pull out the fire, burning in her head

Dig in deep, pull out the fire, burning in her bed

Dig in deep, pull out the fire, she’s hangin’ by a thread

Dig in deep, pull out the fire

Oh gotta dig in

Dig in deep, pull out the fire

Hey gotta dig in

Dig in deep, pull out the fire, pull out the fire

Dig in deep, pull out the fire, pull out the fire

Dig in deep, pull out the fire, pull out the fire

Pull out the fire, pull out the fire, pull out the fire

 

4 a.m.

 

I know it’s late, must be four a.m., I’m standing outside your door

Promise me, if you let me in, you just have to let me in

Cause when you love someone, really love someone

The feeling never fades

It just stays with you and haunts your sould

When you give it all away

 

A wish like heavy rain don’t hang around too long

Some things, baby once they’re chained

Lose the soul that makes them strong

But when you love someone, really love someone

There’s a price you have to pay

It’s the cost of learning, the heart keeps yearning

When you give it all away

 

And I don’t have no flowers

And no champagne on ice

But any given hour

I’d lay down my life

 

Cause when you love someone, really love someone

I guess you just wake up one day

Look around and see what a fool you’d be

To give it all away

 

I know it’s late, must be 4 a.m.

I’m standing outside, standing outside your door

 

The Songsmith

 

In a corner by the window of a small upstairs apartment

There’s a writer with his instrument in hand

He shuffles through some chords

Paces cross the dusty floor

And searches for a melody to bend

 

He reaches for a paper as he feels an inspiration

From a child that he sees playing on the lawn

Begins to ply his trade

Reality begins to fade

He finds a place he feels where he belongs

 

Chorus:

And I don’t think Michael Angelo

could have painted any better

Picture that he painted in my mind

There lies the beauty of the song smith

Take you any place any time

Years and memories they fade

Stars are born and stars are made

The world forgets so easily

For we are mortal men

That’s why he struggles with his pen

To try and leave us something to believe

Still on and on and on we go in the ever changing flow

Evolving till darkness fills the sky

Whoever really knows why it goes the way it goes

Only those who dare to ask them why

 

Chorus:

And I don’t think Michael Angelo

could have painted any better

Picture that the old man sang to me

There lies the beauty of the song smith

Take you any place you wanna be

 

There’s a fire burning

In the darkened hallways of his mind

There’s a fire burning

He’s trying to find a reason for the rhyme

 

Chorus:

And I don’t think Michael Angelo

could have painted any better

Picture that he painted in my mind

There lies the beauty of the song smith

Take you any place any time

 

Squeezed

 

Look at Louie walking down the street

Flipped the bird to the campus police

He’s a real badass, he don’t care

Thinks he got it all worked out

 

Fifty skins and the keys in his pocket

Got a sweet little French girl body like a rocket

Live it, love it, leave it, but buddy don’t knock it

That’s the word in Louie’s house

 

Chorus:

Cause he’s been… squeezed

Knocked to his… knees

Feel his legs get… weak

Louie been squeezed

 

Pinch me pinch I gotta be dreaming

I’m going up hill, but I’m picking up steam

Somewhere in the coffee there’s gotta be cream

I can taste it, I can taste it, I can

 

Doctor doctor, make me a concoction

Cause I couldn’t get lucky at a charity auction

With a two dollar price tag hanging round my neck

Don’t they know who I think I am

 

Chorus:

I gotta get… squeezed

Knocked to my… knees

Feel my legs get… weak

I gotta get squeezed

 

Girl you know I love ya, there ain’t no one else above ya

I’d lie for you, die for you,

spread my wings and fly for you

You are the only one I’ll ever want

And all I’ll ever depend upon

I’m calling falling down on my knees

 

Chorus:

I gotta get… squeezed

Knocked to my… knees

Feel my legs get… weak

I gotta get squeezed

Knocked to my… knees

Feel my legs get… weak

I gotta get squeezed

I gotta get squeezed

I gotta get squeezed

Wonderful Night

 

Come on help me out, said the prince to the jester

How do I get out of this house of fools

I mean the Queen’s a good woman

She’s a saint, God bless her

But I’m a renegade in this Royal charade

So what do you say, you help me make my move

 

Chorus:

Cause it’s a beautiful, it’s a wonderful night

It’s a beautifully wonderful night

to go out and love someone

 

I will help you out said the jester to the prince

But you have to take me with you when you run

Lately I’ve been thinking, and it’s starting to make sense

A man don’t live if he don’t take a chance

So what do you say we go and have some fun

 

Chorus:

Cause it’s a beautiful, it’s a wonderful night

It’s a beautifully wonderful night

to go out and love someone

 

You don’t walk out the back door, that’s much too cruel

You don’t slip out the side door, she might see you

You don’t sneak away in the dark,

she might hear your pounding heart

Starting to sing, longing to cling

To some beautiful, blue eyed, wild young thing

 

Chorus:

Cause it’s a beautiful, it’s a wonderful night

It’s a beautifully wonderful night

to go out and love someone

 

So go

 

I said it’s a beautiful, it’s a wonderful night

It’s a beautifully wonderful night

I said it’s a beautiful, it’s a wonderful night

It’s a beautifully wonderful night to go out and love someone

To go out and love someone

Come on

 

Don’t Go

 

It took a while to call you, but here I am

Ready, so I think, to see this through

Surely you must realize, I’m afraid to face the man

That made me what I am, but not who

 

Forgiveness is a given

I have learned from your mistakes

But to watch you come and go again

Is more than I can take

 

Chorus:

Cause I fall, you fall

Forgive, forget, whatever

We’ll just work it out, that’s all I care, I’m here

Promise me just one thing and I’ll show

Don’t go

 

The baseball that you left me, I broke it in just right

I’m afraid it doesn’t fit my hand no more

But it’s still playing short stop and catching in field flies

On a grandson that you’ve never seen before

 

Oh by the way, his name is Martin

Asks about you all the time

I try and tell him stories

Even if they’re lies

 

Chorus:

I fall, you fall

Forgive, forget, whatever

We’ll just work it out, that’s all I care, I’m here

Promise me just one thing and I’ll show

Don’t go

 

I played this scene a thousand times over in my head

I’ve worn out every angle, every lie

For twenty years I never knew a reason why you left

Ain’t it funny how right now, it’s the last thing on my mind

 

Chorus:

Cause I fall, you fall

Forgive, forget, whatever

We’ll just work it out, that’s all I care, I’m here

There is just so much I need to know

So don’t go

Don’t go

 

In the Morning

 

I heard your cry against these hotel walls,

is there something I can do

I know sometimes this world can feel so small, but we could have a drink when you are through

Cause if there’s one thing I know about, it’s these hotel blues

 

Chorus:

But we’re gonna be fine, yeah we’re gonna be fine

We’re gonna be OK, all right, in the morning

 

You get your medicine man and silver spoon, he doesn’t wear well with your charms

Little demons flying round your room,

from that little hole there in your arm

I don’t know what detour sign you made to walk along this line

 

Chorus:

But we’re gonna be fine, yeah we’re gonna be fine

We’re gonna be OK, all right, in the morning

 

Cause every morning brings a new chance, to change

And every evening brings a new dance

And every breath brings a new frame

And every inch of me believes, in me

 

Factory Line

 

Said I’ve never seen nothing like that before

And her clothes went tumbling to the floor

And her long black hair fell down in curls

In a sea of sand she was a pearl

You know I work all day on the factory line

I don’t want no nothin’ no if it ain’t mine

A little trait instilled in me by my old man

Say I don’t want no nothin’ you’re a free man

 

Chorus:

And I say hey Carmelita we’re never gonna touch the sky

On a factory line

 

Puerto Rico I heard someone say

Immigration paid her way

I watch her hands freeze on her work

As the boss man a brush up against her skirt

You see I had my share of trouble and cops

Now I just shut my mouth and I do my job

But this dark skinned girl she caught my eye

And something shifted deep inside

 

Chorus:

And I say hey Carmelita we’re never gonna touch the sky

On a factory line

 

Well we went to Vegas on a weekend tear

Ah me and the boys and my lady fair

Felt her hand upon my side

She said come and dance with me one time

Felt like I was meant to hold her

Felt a hand upon my shoulder

Was the boss man’s son with a half ass grin

He said you like your job, I’m cutting in

 

Now the worker in me said to step aside

So I looked my damsel in the eyes

Said excuse me for my lack of class

And I told that boy to kiss my ass

I said come on baby let’s blow this town

She said I’ll drive for the first round

And outside of Vegas on a desert strip

She pulled the car into a ditch

 

You ain’t never seen nothing like that before

And her clothes went tumbling to the floor

Now I know that there’s no going back this time

The factory line
