Lyrics

These feelings keep changing shapes and rearranging this space

And all I want is one last goodbye and one more chance to see your face

Time moves while I'm sitting still with or without my will

These changes keep taking place and I cannot tell you to your face

You have broken me, you, you have broken me and now I see

Each line I write, each word I speak will never be enough for me

Each purpose driven still but I don't see how I can heal

One wonders how life can be so unpredictable and bleak

And maybe a light will shine again on me

You have broken me, you, you have broken me

And now I see

Put me back

Put me back together

Put me back together, together again

Put me back

Lyrics

Slowly unravelling, this tugging at the thread

it's got me dizzy in my head

It's just one more gravitational pull to ignore

You are music to my ears that I can't hear

 

But you know the story and how it's gonna end

I'm not gonna read into it, it's just gonna stay in my head

You know the story and how it's gonna end

I'm not gonna read into, it'll just stay in my head

 

This is what it will come to

Voices in the air

A smile here and there

Words will just take place

And not mean anything at all

Just to bide time til' we fall

You'll look at me, I'll look at you and look away

and we can play that game, play that game everyday

 

But you know the story and how it's gonna end

I'm not gonna read into it, it's just gonna stay in my head

You know the story and how it's gonna end

I'm not gonna read into, it'll just stay in my head

 

So the lesson here can not be learned if you're always getting what you want

So read between the lines for once, read between the lines for once

Lyrics

We've lost ourselves in so much space...filled with memories and things that we can't replace

All these dreams keep drifting endlessly.  I can't put them down, they're inside of me

Out of my hands 4x's

I write it down so I don't forget...these things that inspire me I will soon regret

We break the silence when we hit the ground...the puzzle pieces all come crashing down

Out of my hands 4x's

Lyrics

It's so quiet, all I can hear are my thoughts

I try to fight it but I lose and I get caught up

I wanna know that you're there cause I can't see you anymore

I wish I knew ahead of time but no one knows what the future holds

 

I don't wanna get that call, just like that we lost it all

I just can't make sense of this, too late to talk you out of it

ooh ooh help is on the way, please stay

 

All these tears are dried up on my face

All my fears multiplied in one single day

I don't wanna let it go, you're smile, you're voice, you're music

I want it all back

I just cannot let it go

So here alone I write it all down

I don't want to get that call

Just like that we lost it all

ooh ooh help is on the way, please stay 2x's

...and it all ties together, oh it all ties together, it all ties together, oh it all ties together...

Lyrics

Firefly, you fly all around

Firefly you fly lighting up this town

A voice behind says turn your frown upside down

Firefly you fly without any sound

 

Afraid to shine, afraid to shine

Well you shine

And you're all mine

You're all mine...firefly

 

You and I have been here once before

Two hearts that cannot be ignored

Firefly you fly up and down

Firefly you fly lighting up my sky

 

Afraid to shine

Afraid to shine

Well you shine

You shine...you're all mine...you're all mine

Lyrics

Lately I lose track of time but it always catches up with me

My heart's a heavy stone inside anchoring all I believe

I'm an empty teacup on the shelf waiting to be held

Come and find me fill me up, take me while I'm here

Fill it in with color, a brand new mistake

I'll take the thought of it and twist it til' it breaks

My hands are shaky once again

This lonely heart can never win

All these things that weigh me down swim a jagged line

I watch my feet touch the ground, waiting for a sign

Fill it in with color, a brand new mistake

I'll take the thought of it and twist it til' it breaks

My hands are shaky once again

This lonely heart could never win, it could never win

And I wait and skate around the truth and I shake and shiver at the thought of seeing you

And I wait and skate around the truth. I shake and shiver at the thought of losing you

Story

I wrote this song about my brother and myself and the journey we shared as children into early adulthood.

Lyrics

Little girl oh you stand so small but your dreams stand infinitely tall over you, over you

Who knew someday you'd reach the stars after pulling yourself apart year after year

You didn't believe for a moment you'd ever move forward again

You weren't prepared for the season to warm you and let you in so you could start over again

Little boy with your smile so bright while you're holding her hand so tight

You shine oh you shine

Who knew someday you'd figure out what everyone was talking about

and you'd fly oh you'd fly

You didn't believe for a moment you'd ever move forward again

You weren't prepared for the season to warm you and let you in

So you could start over again

We are grown now, on our own now 4x's

Lyrics

In the corner of my mind I am fine

There's no crippling fear of any kind

til' I look out from my eyes and realize

I'm not alone, no longer safe inside my home

Where are all the walls I built outside of me?

No longer locked up but too scared to be free

They have all fallen down around me 3x's

I can talk myself to death but nothing that I've said seems to stay, I run away anyway

To a far off place inside where I can hide and pretend I'm not the person that I am

Where are all the walls I built outside of me?

No longer locked up but too scared to be free

They have all fallen down around me 3x's

Too busy to say hi, that's a lie, what will it take for my hands to stop shaking

Where are all the walls I built outside of me?

No longer locked up but too scared to be free

They have all fallen down around me...

Lyrics

I don't know where this is going

I think we've been here once before

there's a dismal air we're breathing, a kind of cold dysphoria

And I try to make my way back to the top but the weight is pulling me down

And sometimes I need to find a way to stop but there's trouble turning around

Turn me around

No more excuses not to get out of bed

I hear you're brave enough to see

Survived a million hells and the holes in between

Go on you've got a mouth to feed

And I try to make my way back to the top but their weight is pulling me down

And sometimes I need to find a way to stop but there's trouble turning around

Turn me around, turn me around

And where's the line? Where do we draw it? And when's the time to give out to give up to give in?

Turn me, turn me, turn me

oh won't you please, won't you please turn me around...
