The Faint Whisper Calling...

North of the Cities

 

It’s awful windy north of the cities

The sun is back now

It’s still early

I’m nervous

I think I’m changing

No more judging

I’m not a cynic

 

No more waiting

No more waiting here

 

No more frowning

It speeds the aging

Please find me

This game of waiting

I keep driving

But always hoping

That spring is patient

Yet always changing

 

You know it’s deceptive to tell if it’s spring or fall

I wonder if the lakes even care at all?

You know it’s deceptive to tell if it’s spring or fall

I wonder if the lakes even care at all?

 

No more waiting

No more waiting

No more waiting

No more waiting

Feel Something

 

Move along the ties that guide my life

You control emotion like medicine

Keep the pace with my dreams

I won’t let you get away

I think I hear my heart

 

I need to feel something when I look to the sky

Not only time passing, no, passing me by

 

Watch you dance before my eyes if only for one second

One last moment

One last moment with you

Eight hours to get this far

I look deep between the seconds

What am i driving for?

 

I need to feel something when I look to the sky

Not only time passing, no, passing me by

 

If I can’t remember you

I’ll try, I’ll try my best

If I can’t remember you

I’ll try, I’ll try my best to write how I feel

 

I need to feel something when I look to the sky

Not only time passing, no, passing me by

 

I need to feel something when I look to the sky

Not only time passing, no, passing me by

The Possibilities

 

I’m glad that I’ve grown up and been able to understand

All those times that you’d hold me

Said you’re going to be a man

Pop flies in the summer

Music in the winter

Still I know it don’t matter cause I know that I’ve won something better

 

I wouldn’t have known the sort of possibilities

The world had in store for you and for me

I had no idea who I’d be

 

I feel stuck in the city on days like this

Reminds me of snow angel

Warm cocoa with a kiss

My guitar is a comfort

More music fills the winter

And still I know it don’t matter cause I know that I’ve won something better

 

I wouldn’t have known the sort of possibilities

The world had in store for you and for me

I want you to know this goes deeper than my name

You we’re always there

Every song and every game

I have no idea who I’d be

 

I’m glad that I’ve grown up and been able to understand

All those times that you’d push me have made me who I am

 

I wouldn’t have known the sort of possibilities

The world had in store for you and for me

I have no idea who I’d be

Out of this Alive

 

I feel confined to the words on a page

Stuck inside the walls of my cage

I think this song could set me free

Or at least as free as I can be

I’m trying hard to manage a thought

And what i’ve got it aint a lot

 

All i can do is hope that you

You stay by me

Just stay with me

 

It’s cold outside

I can’t remember my life

All has changed but not today

Not today

Will I come out of this alive?

Save me but not like this

Not like this

 

The idea is rise and fall

Crunch it all before I hit a wall

It’s plain as day what’s in motion

Brutal truth is worth knowing

Rhyme and reason clouds my judgment

And whatever I write feels stolen

All I can do is have faith that you

You’ll stand by me, come close we’ll see

 

It’s cold outside

I can’t remember my life

All has changed not like today

Not like today

Will I come out of this alive?

Save me but not like this

No not like this

 

Can’t describe the way I see your face

The running lines through if I could capture you

Wouldn’t be the same as the way you look today

Just stay

 

It’s cold outside

I can’t remember my life

Life has changed not like today

Not like today

Will I come out of this alive?

And save me but not like this

Inspire me but not like this

Not like this

Won’t Back Down

 

I’m headed out tonight away from my own life

Bring on the bright lights

All the beautiful people and children laughing sadly I look away

 

I can’t help my ways I’m counting down the days cause

I feel compelled to get this out of me

 

And I won’t back down from what makes my heart stop and beat

And it’s all I have and it’s all I want to be

I won’t back down

 

My heads in constant doubt

What’s really real and what’s made up

What is the right route?

I pick my pride back up, walk through the door to who knows what

That laughter could be mine

 

I can’t help my ways I’m counting down the days cause

I feel compelled to get this out of me

 

And I won’t back down from what makes my heart stop and beat

And it’s all I have and it’s all I want to leave this world

No i won’t I won’t back down

I won’t back down

 

Doors won’t open up without a little push

My sights a little rough but I swear, i swear it’s you

 

It’s been too long, is this a dream?

I’ve missed the light and how it bounced off you

I don’t want to wake up and face the day

My timings off I think i heard you say

 

And I won’t back down from what makes my heart stop and beat

And it’s all I have and it’s all I want to be

No i won’t, I won’t back down

Someone

 

There you are

I knew it from the night I dreamed you up

The curl in your hair and the way you said “I’m stuck”

Hurry now it’s raining and almost dark

Girl you don’t worry another second

 

Cause I’m here now

I’ll take care of you

The next town awaits

 

You are someone

You are real

And you are beautiful in every single way

 

There’s new life

I love the sound you bring into my days

I’m not upset just sad you’re here so late

It’s like missing a perfect chord

You showed the way

I won’t worry another second

 

Cause you’re here now

I’ll take care of you

The next towns not so far away

 

You are someone

You are real

And you are beautiful in every single way

My heart knew you

Yes it saw you

In a place where only deep desire forms

Deep desire forms

 

Step into the shadow beneath

Heavy sorry recedes to breathe

 

The times now

We have to go

The next town is what we’ll call home

 

You are someone

You are here now

And this is beautiful in so many ways

My heart knew you

When it saw you in a place where only deep desire forms

Deep desire forms, deep desire forms, deep desire forms

A Father’s Day

 

My kids looks at the sky where the birds fly so high

One day you’ll find rest

For now just close your eyes

Now open them up and see the world you’ve made for me

Today might be the best

It’s all starting to make sense

 

I love these days

The sight smell and feel of your face

 

Thinking back I feel the nights

Surround me hold me tight

Forever the thought of you rests in the depths of my mind

Kind words fall from your lips

Their felt in your fingertips

Now get up it’s time to go and carry me back home

 

I love these days

The sight smell and feel of your face

 

I miss the sight smell and taste of your kiss

I miss the sight smell and feel of your lips

Blank Slate   

 

I’ve dreamed a dream but things don’t work out that way

The sting brings life to my hands

The muse sings in me

 

A crack in the ice I fall down to another life with you since you caught my eye

 

We’ll break down our walls

In a cave of stone we’ll crawl

Where forgiveness and passion

The love and hate

We’ll pray on a blank slate

I’ve placed all hope deep down in a hole

I don’t think you ask too much

It’s hard to see eye to eye

 

Love takes time to grow strong

Each day we drift away ooh what went so wrong?

 

We’ll break down our walls

In a cave of stone we’ll crawl

Where forgiveness and passion

The love and hate

We’ll pray on a blank slate

 

We’ll break down our walls

In a cave of stone we’ll crawl

Where forgiveness and passion

The love and hate…

We’ll pray on a blank slate

 

Come save my life

I know you’re there I’ve seen it before with my own eyes

Calm Down, Baby

 

Calm down, baby

Just calm down my dear we’ll figure out a way to be ok

The road I walk won’t feel the same without you on the other side of me

 

The leaves turn an autumn green

I long for my heart to sing like this…ooh

 

Now that you are gone my world has changed

All my memories cling to nothing

My arms can hold barely a thing

The strength they’ve held you is lost inside the wind

 

The seams of my heart need sown

Before the force behind implodes

Till then I’ll sing

 

When I open up my eyes

I swear I’d seen your ghost in thin air

The sunny days blow right by me

The smell of this place is clear like I knew you once here

 

When I open up my eyes

I swear I’d seen your ghost in thin air

The sunny days blow right by me

The days seem to drag on for years

I tried so hard but I can’t muster a tear

The smell of this place is clear like I knew you once here

Like I knew you once here

Cover Me For Good

 

I was driving in heavy snow, a funeral procession passed me on the right

What’s in your past?  Why do I care?

If I could be honest I might have you

 

Will you cover me for good?

Girl I’d change everything if I could

Only a call away that keeps me from seeing the truth about me and you

 

Scraps of paper, forgotten poetry I threw out years ago

Scattered memories and torn up promises that glare right back at me

 

Will you cover me for good?

Girl I’d change everything if I could

Only a mile away that keeps me from seeing the truth about me and you

 

Ooh..

 

Will you cover me for good?

Girl I’d change everything if I could

Only a mile away that keeps me from seeing the truth about me and you

About me and you

Presidents and Priests

 

Where are you?

Where are you?

 

Creation began a long, a long time ago

One day he said “it’s good” and left us all on our own

I’d climb a mountain to heaven just to see you if you were only there

But I know it was hard to free us

It shows you really care

 

Just one moment of time is all I need

An honest open heart

I’m down on my knees

They’re begging presidents and priests for a shred of peace

But I can see you are everywhere

I can see you are everything

 

Where are you?

 

I miss all my friends I’ve lost to the fabric of time

Send me a way to feel them

Perhaps some hope or something I can climb

How do I tell my little girl the lessons of my life?

I bet I know what you’re thinking “keep her close, don’t let her leave your side”

 

Just one moment of time is all I need

An honest broken heart

I’m down on my knees

They’re begging presidents and priests for a shred of peace

But I can see you are everywhere

I can see you are everything

 

Where are you?

I miss you

Complement

 

You complement my life help me from falling off

You sent to my life I couldn’t help it coming on

You tell me…

 

“You won’t ever be by yourself cause I’ll hold you inside”

“I don’t want no one else cause I want you to be safe”

“And I’ll hold you near always”

 

Your beauty gives new light to my life just like the dawn

I won’t easily give you up

I’ll fight till I’m gone for you

 

So won’t you write down your thoughts

We’ll grow old and gray

Do I look the same as the day we fell in love?

Is this that kind of love?

God I hope that it is

 

“You won’t ever be by yourself cause I’ll hold you inside”

“I don’t want no one else cause I want you to be safe”

“And I’ll hold you near always”

“Always”

Saving Up

 

I have been saving up for this

If you don’t believe in anything

Believe in you, believe in me

Bright as the sun you’ve got me undone

An idea is forming like air hardening

An angel given like a gift

It’s alright with me you can be my love

 

What will everyone say?

I don’t care anyway

If it’s alright with you

You can be my love

 

You and I are one

You and I are one

You and I are one

You and I are one

 

What will everyone say?

I don’t care anyway

If it’s alright with you

You can be my love

 

You and I are one in a million

You and I are one in a million

You and I are one in a million

You and I are one in a million…

Come save my life

I know you’re there I’ve seen it before with my own eyes
