DRIFT AWAY

 

There’s a drifter who sleeps where he lays
Never afraid to walk away
All alone with his apathy, it keeps him company
Well I guess that’s all you’d see if you let him be.

And thru it all he wanted to surrender
Who damned his soul to believe
He had lost his redemption
So he could just let love drift away
Drift away
If his road goes on forever
Well I know he’s bound to keep on riding.

 

No rest for the wanderer, he sleeps with one eye open
To guard the wall that guards his heart

From what his heart might never know
For a moment he let me in, and beside him there I lay my head
Watching him sleep, I pray this time his fears will drift away.

 

Nobody ever told you it’s safe to stay, where you lay your head down.

JUST LIKE YOU

 

All figured out, you think you’ve got it all figured out.
All figured out, but you’ve got it wrong again.
But that’s just like you,
Just like you.

 

And I can almost feel you on a night like tonight.

I know I can find you, if I just look behind.

Alone I just might become who I am.

I guess it’s just not enough

That you can’t give me all of you that I can see.
Stop guessing I guess, coz I can’t fall in love

With who I hope you might become.

So now here we are and it’s good good good goodbye again
I just want you to know
We can’t walk away if we’ve got something to say.

But that’s just like you.
Just like you.

SOMETHING TO SAY

 

Hello my friend, sure has been awhile

Where are those words that I can’t find?

Don’t you know where you belong?

Don’t you know where you belong?

 

Listen, I can hear you thinking and I gotta say

 

Get out of your own way if you’ve got something to say

All you gotta do is just believe

And get out of your own way if you’ve got something to say.

 

Sure it’s always been simple

Talking your heart to mine

You know if you’d open up to me

I bet you’d like what I’d find

 

Listen, I can hear you thinking and I gotta say

 

Get out of your own way if you’ve got something to say

All you gotta do is just believe

And get out of your own way if you’ve got something to say.

 

Listen, I can hear you thinking and I gotta say

 

Get out of your own way if you’ve got something to say

All you gotta do is just believe

And get out of your own way if you’ve got something to say.
