a little 03:40
Hey baby two miles more and the shore will clear your mind a little Hey baby I have been there before where the clouds fade a little And we’ll have time for love And we’ll have time to rest a little You know it’s never been a joke I never thought you were my girl just for a little So baby one mile more to the shore hold on a little Hey darling see the clouds on the sea they fade a little The sunset is there for you Now hold my hands a little I really want you here with me It’s just that I’m a mess will you wait for me a little The blanket is now laid out on the shore come close a little Please know you have to stop crying let me dry your eyes a little You know it breaks my heart Lay your head right next to mine a little I’m sure it will be fine You’ll see I’ll be gone just for a little while Now I’m here and I write words for you, it took me a little You know I miss you I wonder if you miss me too, you know I’ve been playing a little But baby how do you feel Here sometimes it gets unreal a little I’m sure all is fine You’ll see I’ll be gone just for a little while

up n' down 04:16
I take my time while I m walking around And I pray for a better day I get some smokes and turning around I’m surprised when I see your face You ask me how long I’ve been back in town So I say just a couple of days You give me a cold hug You lift your arms Then I see you walking away You’ve been mine a thousand times But I made your world fall down Up and down we cruised in town I was blind now you’re gone away I get a coffee then I look down Two big eyes are pointing my way A little boy is playing on the ground With a smile that lights up my day He walks on by his shoes are untied Then he waves and fallows his friend I take a deep breath and I calm down ‘cause this boy’s shown me nothing but grace And I thought If you were still mine we could have a child We could get a car and a place to stay But I’m in town walking around Up and down trying to fix my days I get my change take a sip from my glass I’m ok but I feel kinda strange I look around while I’m burning my tongue I think Hey I’d better walk away I say to myself I know a park in this town I can go there it’s a beautiful place I cross the street people driving around They don’t care ‘bout the sunny day One more block and I’ll be lying on the ground I’ll find a spot to get some sun on my face But I walk in and people are screaming loud So I guess there’s no pace for today I’m thinking If you were still mine we’d have the time To get bikes and ride’em there Up and down the park in town But I was blind so you’ve gone away

Light a cigarette so I will smoke my soul Hit my head a million times against the wall Ain’t no solution to break free in this world My desperation slowly grows I rub my eyes red just to see you clear Packing up my stuff doesn’t help my fears So I’ll wash my face and leave my sanctuary ‘cause the street always gives me a reason to believe thinking about you aching for you staring at the wall talking ‘bout you running to you just to realize my soul keep on moving on trying to be strong just to leave the fear alone I can’t keep holding on. I rub my eyes red just to see you clear Packing up my stuff doesn’t help my fears So I’ll wash my face and leave my sanctuary ‘cause the street always gave me a reason to believe thinking about you aching for you staring at the wall talking ‘bout you running to you just to realize my soul keep on moving on trying to be strong just to leave the fear alone I can’t keep holding on.

Hey you won’t see me cry Hey I hear what you say Hey you chose who you wanted So drop down the mask you put on your face Hey don’t forget the flowers I gave’em to you just the other day But hey now you look tired So pick up your clothes and wish me the best please walk out the door and leave me alone today It is what it is what do you want me to say It’s not your fault if I’m not the only man But leave me alone cause I feel like I’m dead I’ll keep on movin’on I‘ll keep on moving on hey you can leave the glass there ‘cause now that it’s empty I don’t care if it breaks hey but just rush on that cigarette or smoke it out there while you’re walking away I know those eyes and I know that smile I tried to lie just to reach your heart I even died just to feel alive And I toss and turn at night when I dream of you by my side And I stumble in the dark when I think I’ve seen your eyes When my body feels your hands when I try to understand When I try to stay alive I’m beggin’you now take what you want but leave me alone today no I won’t stop you if I see you run away it is what it is what do you want me to say just leave me alone cause I feel like I’m dead

I thought i was clever when i said darling please Tasted wine from your lips and you went down on your knees lights on the floor they are dancing wild my mind is floating nowhere and I’m wondering why you show me affection and i just want an excape i tell you my darling I’m better off walking away 24/7 you can find me here but don t ask me for love ‘cause it’s drowned in my tears i feel like such a fool i don’t understand why i played on the floor with my woman’s friend you say it’s ok that she‘ll understand just ‘cause you got what you wanted but now I’m a restless man you were taking control I was losing my soul we both lost our girl while we got down on the floor so you got what you wanted you took me to hell now get up dress up well and find another man 24/7 i am always here ‘cause I thought I was clever but now I’m drowned in my tears you were taking control I was losing my soul we both lost our girl while we got down on the floor

I keep on moving I really do I change my way but I always fall right next to you I wake up lonely They went away I look up in the mirror and I always see your face I jump in the shower Outside it’s cold I light the fire make a coffee and put on my clothes The mailman’s calling I jump out fast It’s only bills to pay but ain’t no letters from my friends Now I’m driving slowly I’m singing too I left my house but where I’ll end up I have no clue The phone is silent I’m growing mad I light another cigarette ‘cause the time ain’t passing fast It’s getting dark now It’s freezing too I’m tired of driving and my mood is turning kinda blue I walk in the house No message left The Christmas lights make me feel even more depressed yes I know that I lost you Since my heart is always blue I’m tired of feelin’ alone So give me hope and I’ll be strong Now I know that I love you Since my heart is always blue I turn on some music I dance alone I keep on telling myself I just need to be strong But where’d I fail Where did I go wrong I’m just begging for an answer not to feel alone So squeeze my heart baby You can toss it too I simply wish you never ever feel the way I do Never feel the way I do never feel the way I do This is my wish for you That you never feel so blue

Found a piece of paper so I’ll write down All the thoughts that I have in my mind Trying to catch those simple signs That one day you left behind Even the walls in this silent house Are so lazy as lazy as my town Nothing moves nothing breathes Only the notes you hung on the fridge Yes they move move straight to my heart So I can hold ’em tight every night And every night I come to you Will you hear me when I sing for you but maybe baby I’m just a bit crazy Or maybe baby I simply need you ‘cause to rest now baby is not always easy the bed feels empty without you Tell me now that you’re well I know it seems like I’m living under your spell Is it forbidden just to think about you Sometimes the horizon is not always blue but maybe baby I’m just a bit crazy Or maybe baby I simply love you ‘cause to rest now baby is not always easy the bed feels empty without you like an angel falling from the sky You’ll be there to lead me when I fly Like the clouds we’ll run forever Then I’ll sing for you as loud as I can All the melodies that make me feel like a man ‘cause I know I will I know I will but maybe baby I’m just a bit crazy Maybe baby I simply love you ‘cause to dream now baby is not always easy but I know I’ll sleep even without you

jumpin' high 02:57
I’m jumpin’ high‘cause I feel alive every step I’m takin’ today I thought I’d die When I saw your smile Comin’ over from further away You looked in my eyes You threw a smile We both didn’t know what to say We were so shy But I felt like cryin’ When you kissed me all over my face and then I felt the fire burnin’ in my vains ‘cause we were standing and hugging tight again We set outside We laughed all night ‘till the moon ducked under the day You took me inside We danced a while Then our clothes were all over the place You lost your smile You started cryin’ I asked you if you were ok You said I’m fine You know all this time I was tryin’ to remember your face I held you tight you laid your head on my chest The wind was blowin’ the sky was turnin’ red I can’t tell you ‘bout the loneliness I felt Your heart is now with me So I don’t care So tell me why We gotta lie No the world can’t handle this sin Oh when we try We fly so high We feel chills all over our skin when we’re alone the world is spinning ‘round our heads So if we let it go it will be so sad

You’ve shown me all your money You’ve shown me all your money last night You’ve shown me what your money You’ve shown me what your money can buy But still all your money ain’t enough to make it right You gave me bags of diamonds You gave me bags of diamonds it’s true You gave my all those diamonds You gave my all those diamonds for good But if I take those diamonds it will be hard to talk to the moon You get me whiskey and wine You get me whiskey and wine every night You want to get me whiskey You want to get me wine every night But neither one of those are strong enough to blind my eyes You want to be my woman You want to be my woman, it’s all right You think you were my woman You think you were my woman last night See, lovin’ you honey, it’s not a thing your money can buy
