What Makes Sense

 

The place where you and I once stood

 Together when it all was good

Is buried from our trials and tribulations

Hanging by a dangerous thread

Every ounce has now been bled

From what was once hopeful situation

I hang my head and watch you fall

Your blank stare back has built a wall of separation

 

You always knew you had a choice

But you couldn’t find your voice

You decided on what’s now too tough to mention

I heard you cry and I heard you scream

I saw you sweat from your bad dreams

Never did I start and intervention

I could never figure out why 

You always had to doubt all my intentions

 

You hear the thunder

You feel the rain

You see the hunger

You taste the pain

You smell the danger

But it’s all in vain

How can it ever make any sense again

 

Are you Adam or are you Eve

You went and let that fruit deceive

It took what could have been your soul salvation

You chose your path or it chose you

A path that led to black and blue

With no parole or pardon for your sentence

You used to have a righteous mind

You never wanted any kind of vengeance

 

You hear the thunder

You feel the rain

You see the hunger

You taste the pain

You smell the danger

But it’s all in vain

How can it ever make any sense again

 

Terms & Conditions

 

She had her reasons

 For being deceiving

She didn’t know where they were going

A love that was blind

She played with his mind

He was better for not ever knowing

She carried it well

Wasn’t easy to tell

Deep down he was all that she’d need

She couldn’t convey

What she wanted to say

The truth she couldn’t concede

 

Sometimes love can’t fit like a glove

There is no concise definition

You take what you get

Or your mind will be set

On too many terms and conditions

 

He always believed

That he was what she’d need

Through the thick and the thin of it all

He would make it seem right

In the dark of the night

That’s when she would usually fall

He had a strong will

And the void he would fill

Hoping her trust he would earn

Giving his heart

So she’d not fall apart

Never asking a thing in return

 

Sometimes love can’t fit like a glove

There is no concise definition

You take what you get

Or your mind will be set

On too many terms and conditions

 

 

Even The Devil Cries

 

Today I saw the devil cry

I saw a tear fall from his eye

Somewhere out there lies the reasons why

Here I need to find the will to try

 

What’s right is wrong

These nights are long

Oh, please help me hang on

 

Who’s the one to say what’s fair

What you give and what you get is what you share

How can you explain the cold dark stare

Please explain that cold dark stare

 

What’s right is wrong

These nights are long

Oh, please help me hang on

 

Another day of hell has passed us by

Searching for the truth, no more lies

The pain that’s buried deep behind your eyes

It’s so sad that even the devil cries

So sad even the devil cries

 

What’s right is wrong

These nights are long

Oh, please help me hang on

Won’t you help me

Oh, please help me

I need you to help me hang on

 

 

Edge Of The World

 

 A gentle breeze blowing

The sun sets to the sea

A calmness we feel as we set our minds free

All the worries we carry

No longer appear

Lost in the beauty of what is sincere

 

Ohhh, Ohhh, Ohhh

Ohhh, Ohhh, Ohhh

 

We’re not where we started

A long time ago

We set out on a journey for where we didn’t know

To a place that was different

From where we had been

Looking for what we felt

When lost in our dreams


Ohhh, Ohhh, Ohhh

Ohhh, Ohhh, Ohhh

 

It’s a long way

It’s a long way

It’s a long way

It’s a long way

It’s a long way to the edge of the world

It’s a long way to the edge of the world

It’s a long way to the edge of the world

 

But it’s worth the cost

Oh, it’s worth the cost

So follow me

Come follow me 

Set your mind free and follow me

 

It’s a long way to the edge of the world

It’s a long way to the edge of the world

It’s a long way to the edge of the world

 

Ohhh, Ohhh, Ohhh

Ohhh, Ohhh, Ohhh

Ohhh, Ohhh, Ohhh

Take The Chance

 

The old man was sitting next to me

As we rolled down route 41

On a Greyhound that left the station

As we said goodbye to the sun

Time goes slow when you stare out the window

Watching the miles go by

 Gazing out into the darkness

Searching for the reasons why

 

After about an hour or so

He said son, how long have you played

I asked him how he knew and with a sly old grin 

He said you wear it on your face

He said I see you are fighting a battle

And you look like you’re running upstream

I said I’m tired of the road and the letdowns

And I guess I just lost the dream

 

He said take the chance that your given

You’ve got to take it nice and slow

You’ve got to make the most of your living

You’ve got to do it to keep control

You don’t get the chance many times in a lifetime

Believe me I know

If you don’t make the most of your situation
You’re gonna miss the show

 

He said I’ll tell you where I come from

It’s a place from long ago

It wasn’t a whole lot different how I learned to live on the road

I had my share of the ladies

And the places I played were fine

But I grew tired of the journey and it seemed the end of the line

So I paced it in and I ran away

Thinking I could go back home

As the years went by trying to find my way, all I could do was roam

You see, the only place that was meant for me was out there under the lights

I’m telling you now what I didn’t know then

Do what you know is right

 

You’ve got to take the chance that you’re given

You’ve got to take it nice and slow

You’ve got to make the most of your livin’

You’ve got to do it keep control

You don’t get the chance many times in a lifetime

Believe me I know

And if you don’t make the most of your situation 

You’re gonna miss the show

 

As we kept on rolling through the night

I thought about the words he said

He seemed like a friendly but sad old soul

And he was troubled with the life he led

I said thanks old man for taking the time

To share how you let your life go

It’s a tough old world and it gets you down

But I see that you’re never too old

 

To take the chance that you’re given 

You’ve got to take it nice and slow

Make the most of your livin’

You’ve got to do it to keep control

You don’t get the chance many times in a lifetime

Believe me I know

And if you don’t make the best of your situation

You’re gonna miss the show

Don’t miss the show

Don’t miss the show

Don’t miss the show

Don’t miss the show

 

 

Common Ground

 

You’ve got the style and you’ve got the look

You are the one who wrote the book

On how to get with what you’ve got

Always acting like you’re something you’re not

 

You’ve got the smile and you’ve got the tan

You’ve got the time and you’ve got the plan

If they could only see

How you calculate your moves so carefully

 

You think you are

A shooting star

You go too far

I hope you’ll come around

To meet on common ground eventually

 

You don’t believe in second best

You put yourself above the rest

It’s not about how others feel

When they’re put down and out by you it’s no big deal

 

You think because your wallet’s full

It lets you push and gives you pull

Showing off the things you own

Can you not see that what you’ve got is just on loan

 

You think you are

A shooting star

You go too far 

And I hope you’ll come around
To meet on common ground eventually

 

Never Afraid

 

If you were never afraid

Would you keep the excuses that you've made

 Or would you throw them far away, 

And start a brand new day

Leaving all your worries behind

 

If you were never afraid

Would you play all those games you've never played

Would you say what you won't say, 

To make it go your way

Maybe then you'd have a peace of mind

 

If you were never afraid 

Then I know it would be better

Better doesn't come so easily

If you never were afraid

Then I know we'd be together

And that is what I wish for you and me

 

If you were never afraid

Would you make decisions that you never make

Would you take the chances that you never take

The ones that always seem to slip away

 

If you were never afraid

Then I know it would be better

Better doesn’t come so easily

If you were never afraid 

Then I know we’d be together

And that is what I wish for you and me

 

 I’ve Learned A Lot

 

When I think of those days

When I was trying to run away

Thinking with my heard and never with my head

The grass was always greener 

I must have been a dreamer

Never listening to the words my friends said

I thought I had it figured

Didn’t know the plan was bigger 

With a long and winding road that lay ahead

It takes doing it all wrong

To make the right things come along

Not as simple as the words in a book that could have been read

 

It takes learning it the hard way

Getting hurt and going sideways

To appreciate all that you’ve got

It’s what I’ve been taught

And I’ve learned a lot

 

I learned more from that path

How it taught me the math

How to calculate what I’m looking for

If it was handed on a platter

Then it just wouldn’t matter 

And I’d always have the need to want more

I’ve got the bruises and the scars

From when I took it too far

Many times I was led out the door

When they let me back in

I was glad for where I’d been

And I knew I’d never be going back there anymore

 

 

It takes learning it the hard way

Getting hurt and going sideways

To appreciate all that you’ve got

It’s what I’ve been taught

And I’ve learned a lot

Yeah, it’s what I’ve been taught 

And I’ve learned a lot

 

 

Radiate and Glow

 

The story's the same, we come and we go

Why does it change what we think

When we're honestly told  

What we already know

We're born and we breath, we live and we die

Asking the questions but never receiving the answers

We need

 To understand why

 

It's true

For me and you

It's true

It's true

 

Reasons unclear from the words that we hear

Living uncertain with all the of the questions

And worry 

And doubt

And fear

Embracing the truth is hard to believe

When told of the way it will pass it is then that we know 

How they will grieve

 

It's true

For me and you

It's true

It's true

 

If I was told - of the time I'd have 

To radiate and glow

Then I'd know

How I'd spend my final days 

Living out my dreams and circumstances

Before I go

 

It's true

For me and you

It's true

It's true
