Keep The Faith (2017)

LYRICS

Who are these monsters inside my head?
They give me uneasy feelings
They tell me “Go to sleep! Just go to bed!”
But I’m awake and I’m not dreaming

What can I do to make a change
Cause I just wanna be free
I don’t want a police state
I just want love and liberty

Call up a friend, send a message
Tweet it up or make a YouTube video
Speak your mind
With education,
The knowledge it starts to grow
So make a YouTube video

Now we all know about corruption
And we have started to dissent
The Banks, the Fed, assassination
So we’ll pay with Bitcoin instead

It’s what we do to make a change
Cause we just wanna be free
We don’t want a police state
We just want love and liberty

Call up a friend, send a message
Tweet it up or make a YouTube video
Speak your mind
With education,
The knowledge it starts to grow
So make a YouTube video

We all need a hero
A patriot in this civil war
But you won’t find him
on the TV or on the radio
We have the power
To ask the questions
So we can finally find the truth
Turn to each other
Sister and brother
Reach out to one another

Call up a friend send a message
Tweet it up or make a YouTube video
Speak your mind
With education,
The knowledge it starts to grow
So make a YouTube video

Sometimes it ain’t easy to be free
Too many people trying to get ahold of me
They tell me what to think and what to do
That I’ve gotta move on and get over you

This about a country and a love
We don’t know what will rain down from above
But it could be the end of the world
So I must choose to be a woman
And not a girl

I don’t always want to be the one who’s strong
Sometimes I need a man to tell me what’s right and what’s wrong
I can admit I have flaws
I get so mad I rip right through the walls

This is about a country and a love
We don’t know what will rain down from above
Cuz it could be the end of the world
So I must choose to be a woman
And not a girl

I need you to be a man, and not a boy
Cause I’m playing for keeps and my heart is not a toy
Will you stand up and defend the house and home?
Or pretend you didn’t notice, and leave me all alone?

This is about a country and a love
We don’t know what will rain down from above
Cuz it could be the end of the world
So I must choose to be a woman
And not a girl

I wish that you could give me what I need
But you can’t, and your words I don’t believe
I’m asking for the best of myself
So I’ll leave my lonely heart on the shelf

This is about a country and a love
Don’t know what will rain down from above
But it could be the end of the world
So I must choose to be a woman

Been a year on the road
Falling apart at the seams
I just wanna be home
But I can’t even sleep to dream

It would be really fine
If I had me a friend
Someone I belong to
Make him real, not pretend

I will promise you, I’ll be there
When the snow melts to rain
No we cannot break
There’s a lot to take
But I’m safe with you

Take a moment to rest
Gotta get myself right
Put my faith to the test
Believing in something that’s right

Lift a song from the heart
Voice the echoes of mind
Give the world what they want
These are troubling times

I will promise you, I’ll be there
When the snow melts to rain
No we cannot break
There’s a lot to take
But I’m safe with you

So I’ll wait for the day
That you give me a smile
Though you’re so far away
I can wait a while

There’s a set place in time
For the lightning to hit
All the stars will align
And I think that this is it

I will promise you, I’ll be there
When the snow melts to rain
No we cannot break
There’s a lot to take
But I’m safe with you

I will promise you, I’ll be there
When the snow melts to rain
No we cannot break
There’s a lot to take
But I’m safe with you
I’m safe with you

Turn me loose from your hands
Let me fly to distant lands
Over green fields, trees and mountains
Flowers and forest fountains
Home along the lanes of the skyway

For this dark and lonely room
Projects a shadow cast in gloom
And my eyes are mirrors of the world outside
Thinking of the way that the wind can turn the tide

And these shadows turn from purple into gray,
For just this skyline pigeon, dreaming of the open,
Waiting for the day he can spread his wings and fly away again

Fly away,
Skyline pigeon, fly
Towards the dreams you left so very far behind
Fly away,
Skyline pigeon, fly
Towards the dreams you left so very far behind

Let me wake up in the morning
To the smell of new mown hay,
To laugh and cry, to live and die
In the brightness of my day

I wanna hear the pealing bells
Of distant churches sing
But most of all
Please free me from this aching metal ring

And open up this cage towards the sun
For just this skyline pigeon, dreaming of the open,
Waiting for the day he can spread his wings and fly away again

Fly away,
Skyline pigeon, fly
Towards the dreams you left so very far behind
Fly away,
Skyline pigeon, fly
Towards the dreams you left so very far behind

I woke up this morning
And I turned on the radio
I heard the same old song
So I went outside

People fighting, people living, people dying
And it’s oh so much to think about
It’s oh so much to worry about
It makes me cry

Need a bit of perspective,
Need some time to reflect it,
To remember how similar we all are
We all want the same things,
A chance to follow our dreams
To raise a family of love and liberty

So don’t forget the time we spent,
We’re not perfect, but we have good intent,
And even though we make mistakes
We stand unified.

So hold on tight
It’s a hell of fight
Keeps you up in the night
But we have to remember
We’re all on the same side

Now it’s late in the evening
And I can’t seem to turn off the news
Telling me that we’re gonna lose
But we’ve already won

We’ve got a message and a voice and a song
Now if only we could all just get along
Put away the past and pride
And leave the worries behind

Need a bit of perspective,
Need some time to reflect it,
To remember how similar we all are
We all want the same things,
A chance to follow our dreams
We are a family of love and liberty

So don’t forget the time we spent,
We’re not perfect, but we have good intent,
And even though we make mistakes
We stand here unified

So hold on tight
It’s a hell of fight
Keeps you up in the night
But we have to remember
We’re all on the same side (repeat)

It feels like night, babe
But it’s really the dawn
As tears roll down my face
On this early morn

Some days I’m happy,
And some days I’m strong
But today I’m here wondering
Where it all went wrong

I know goodbyes aren’t meant to be easy
This time to cut it all off is the best way to go
It’s too late for you to say that you miss me
Cause you’re not really there at the end of the day

Things have been much worse in my life
But this mess was made by you
I pulled out my heart, and I gave you half
So now I play the fool

I know I should be out singin’ songs about peace and freedom
But my heart is still chained up like a servant and a slave

I know goodbyes aren’t meant to be easy
This time to cut it all off is the best way to go
It’s too late for you to say that you miss me
‘Cause you’re not really there at the end of the day

I know about the drones and the bombs
And all about Big Brother
I just need some time to heal and I’ll get back up on the field

I know goodbyes aren’t meant to be easy
But this time to cut it all up is the best way to go
It’s too late for you to say that you miss me
‘Cause it’s not really fair how it hurts when you’re not there
I need someone there at the end of the day

I went out to a gig today,
They told me I’d be paid to play,
I’m counting on it, to pay all of my bills

I gotta eat, have a place to sleep
Need to cool the summer heat,
So yeah, if you don’t mind, I need my cash

Or I will call you out
Gotta ask the people for their help
Cause we can’t afford the crooked courts anymore
Yeah we will call you out
Cause you tell the cops and they won’t listen
A benefit of broken systems these days

I left New York to go to Chile,
Far away, it wasn’t pretty
But I dust myself off and walk away

I’m looking up and I won’t be down
Cause I get to play all around the world
It is so beautiful to see

You think that cause I’m just some girl
You’ll frighten me with scary words or
Try to touch me when I’m on the stage

It seems romantic to be broke
But you know, my friend, it ain’t a joke
When the bad guy always gets away

If you want me to be happy
Then please find me somebody to love
Cause I’m lonely, yeah, it’s sappy
But I want him sent from up above

I’ve been waiting a long, long time
Wish somebody would send a sign
Write some words, maybe if they rhyme
He’ll come around

I’m a romantic,
So then sue me!
Cause I want a prince to ride by my side
A perfect lover,
No undercover,
I won’t worry if he cheated or lied

I’ve been waiting a long, long time
Wish somebody would send a sign
Write some words, maybe if they rhyme
He’ll come around

Now some may say
That a love can fade away
You’re passing the time
Fortune telling on my last dime
Don’t you say it can’t happen
In these times
Today

All alone in my bed,
Fighting dragons again
No, I can’t stop the tears when they fall

How did I get to this place?
All that work seems a waste
I thought I had friends on my side

Keep the memories, and make love from war
No, you never know what life has in store
It can take a little while to learn to keep the faith
You gotta learn to keep the faith

You know it’s been a real bad year,
Lots of sorrow and fear
And I’ve wondered where I took the wrong turn,

But I’ve had time to reflect,
Gave myself some respect,
And I’ll face the whole big world mighty strong

You go rolling ahead
And I cry a little bit
No, you won’t find your way back to me

But at the end of the day
I thank God when I pray,
Cause it was better than drinking alone

Whatever happened to a love that was true,
Where you didn’t wanna fuck my friends?
I wanted the real thing, you said all the right things,
But somehow we’ve come to an end

It wasn’t the fast track, it wasn’t the last batch
Of shit to go wrong that did us in

It was the way that you told me
That you’d always hold me
But you left me out in the wind

Whatever happened to the word of a man?
I thought that I could count on you
I guess I’m old-fashioned for the things that I’m asking
But I didn’t break a promise to you

So now I act crazy, you’re playing me, baby,
You’re right I ain’t no good at this game

And I’ve been standing out in the cold
And I want to feel the fire now
Take some time for myself
Just under a thousand miles

You said that this wouldn’t happen,
You made me imagine
What a life together would have been

I’ll pick up the pieces
After all our releases
of Love
When it breaks on the ground

There was a man who did the unspoken
He looked for freedom from the violence
No one is perfect when there’s new ground broken
A mess is made and someone gets blamed

He had a dream of harmony
As you wish to live out your own
We cannot stand for this, cannot have you fall along
The silk road

This ain’t the movies, there’s a war in the streets
The innocent are in jail
We pray for justice and we want to be free
And hope the truth will prevail

We still have hope
We cannot quit
Don’t be afraid
We have a voice and this is it
Let the light show the way

I didn’t want to give any of my money to a nation based on war
I wanted to be free, nothing holding me back from where I want to go
I thought about it, I thought about it
What was the choice that I made?
It was to take away the money,
Don’t give up your money,
Use Bitcoin whenever you pay
Use Bitcoin whenever you pay

I didn’t want to waste any of my time working for the government,
I wanted to be kind, open up my mind just like an instrument
I thought about it, I thought about it
What was the choice that I made?
It was to take away the money,
Don’t give up your money,
Use Bitcoin whenever you pay
Use Bitcoin whenever you pay

Oooooo, what a little crypto can do
No longer a slave
I don’t have to work until the grave

So many times I cried to myself that we didn’t have a chance
Nakamoto came along with more than a song, gave the labor back to man
I thought about it, I thought about it
What was the choice that I made?
It was to take away the money,
Don’t give up your money,
Use Bitcoin whenever you pay
Use Bitcoin whenever you pay

Love And Liberty (2012)

LYRICS

So many things are happenin’
Outside of our control
The planets fade the stars align
And some of us strike gold
You hold onto the things you have
You doubt the road ahead
A shaky faith in miracles
Gets weaker in your head

Let it go
Don’t think about it
You just show the world your beautiful face
Let it go
‘Cause you don’t need it
Go outside and be happy today

Now we all have sorrow
And we all have pain
But have faith in mercy
Forgiving a man
Torment and heartache
Won’t keep your bed warm
So go out and
LIVE it again

Let it go
Don’t think about it
You just show the world your beautiful face
Let it go
‘Cause you don’t need it
Go outside and be happy today

Time waits for no one
It forces change on spirit and the sand
Decide to move onward
And you know ill be there holding you hand
You know it can’t be that bad

Let it goMore
Don’t think about it
You just show the world your beautiful face
Let it go
‘Cause you don’t need it
Go outside and be happy today

I wake up with a news report from a lonely heart
It’s time to wake up, its time for the show
I put it on the line, I didn’t think that I would do it this time
But here we are, and I want it, yeah I want it

I want the news to say that I love you,
that we both are really, really in love
Not another sad, sad case
I want the news report to remind me that I gotta keep moving on
No one here will save the day.

Back again, playin’ cool of course cause I gotta take it all in stride
You can stay or you can go
I’ve played with boys before, when I say gimme more
They always run away
But here we are, and I want it, yeah I want it

I want the news to say that I love you,
that we both are really, really in love
Not another sad, sad caseI want the news report to remind me that I gotta keep moving on
No one here to save the day.

I don’t know why I’ve been crying
Maybe it’s a typical case of very bad timing
Babe cause you know we both saw the flame
But now it’s faded
and you’re to blame

I want the news to say that I love you,
that we both are really really in love
Not another sad sad case
I want the news report to remind me that I have to keep moving on
No one here will save the day.

I want the news report to remind me
That we’re never gonna fall in love
Just another sad, sad case
I want the news report to remind me that I gotta keep movin’ on
No one here will save the day
No one here will save the day

I want to live,
I want to give
I’ve been a miner for a heart of gold.
It’s these expressions
I never give
That keep me searching for a heart of gold.
 
And I’m getting old.
Keep me searching for a heart of gold
And I’m getting old.
 
I’ve been to Hollywood
I’ve been to Redwood
I crossed the ocean for a heart of gold.
I’ve been in my mind,
It’s such a fine line
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold.
 
And I’m getting old.
Keeps me searching for a heart of gold
And I’m getting old.
 
Keep me searching for a heart of gold.
You keep me searching and I’m growing old.
Keep me searching for a heart of gold
I’ve been a miner for a heart of gold.

You act like you know me
You wasted so much time
You’d broken every rhyme
You dare to call up my friends
No time to make amends
But I better keep in line
Tell me you’re sorry, you regret all of the lies
Don’t act familiar, cause I don’t know you anymore
You act like you can know me
You command me what to write
In the magic of the night
You were falser than a lie
And flames they grew too high
They burned us to the ground

CHORUS

Stop time the moon is right
Suspend all these games in the dark
Tell me the truth this once
Was it (anything) ever even real?

Here’s my lover lying here next to me
He doesn’t know what I have planned
I lean over brush a hair from his eye
But he continues to sleep

I’m leavin’ tomorrow
‘Cause I ain’t got time for yesterday
I’m leaving tomorrow
‘Cause there isn’t any other way
And I’ll think about you every day

Here is my mother standin’ here next to me
She doesn’t know what I have planned
I lean over put my head on her shoulder
But she is watching TV

I’m leavin’ tomorrow
‘Cause I ain’t got time for yesterday
I’m leaving tomorrow
‘Cause there isn’t any other way
And I’ll think about you every day

I thought about it
Tried to get around it
But I can’t seem to escape the truth
Givin’ you up isn’t easy
But I’ve given my last excuse

I’m leavin’ tomorrow
‘Cause I ain’t got time for yesterday
I’m leaving tomorrow
‘Cause there isn’t any other way
And I’ll think about you every day

I once knew a girl named Rita
She didn’t mean to steal your man
She’s a friend you can go out with,
Better off without it
‘Cause she’s all bad

She will look you in the eyes and smile
But she is hiding devil styles
To cut you all down

As she lets her legs and lips unfold
She won’t let lies remain untold
She’ll sell your ass out

Ooh!
She’s a killer
She’ll tear your heart on out
And then declare herself the winner

All the guys they want to fuck her
Be a lucky number
In her bag

But 10 years down her ass is growin’
Her titties showin’, an old hag

Yeah she’ll be up and lit in city lights
In glitter tanks and neon tights
A cup full of change

Wandering eyes replaced with wandering hands
A place to sleep for a one night stand
A girl who’s worn out….

Ooh!
What a sinner
You’ve got to bless her soul
And serve that rumored flesh for dinner
This tale I tell is of a wash out
You better watch out
For her scheme

‘Cause pity can be used against you
An apt defense to those bad
Bad deeds

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I’m one

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new bluejeans
My father was a gamblin’ man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk
And the only time he’s satisfied
Is when he’s on, a drunk

Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I’m goin’ back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I’m one

Who are these monsters inside my head?
They give me uneasy feelings
They tell me “Go to sleep! Just go to bed!”
But I’m awake and I’m not dreaming
What can I do to make a change?
‘Cause I just wanna be free
I don’t want a police state
I just want love and liberty

Call up a friend send a message
Tweet it up or make a YouTube video
Speak your mind. With education,
The knowledge it starts to grow
So make a YouTube video

We all know about corruption
And we have started to dissent
the Banks the Fed assassination
But you can’t kill 99%
What can we do to make a change?
‘Cause we just wanna be free
We don’t want this police state
We just want love and liberty
Call up a friend send a message
Tweet it up or make a YouTube video
Speak your mind. With education,
The knowledge it starts to grow
So make a YouTube video

We all need a hero
A patriot in this civil war
Won’t find him on the TV or on the radio
We have the power
To ask the questions
So we can finally find the truth
Turn to each other
Sister and brother
Reach out to one another
Call up a friend send a message
Tweet it up or make a YouTube video
Speak your mind. With education,
The knowledge it starts to grow
So make a YouTube video

Come you masters of war
You that build the big guns
You that build the death planes
You that build all the bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know
I can see through your masks
You that never done nothin’
But build to destroy
You play with my world
Like it’s your little toy
You put a gun in my hand
And you hide from my eyes
And you turn and run farther
When the fast bullets fly
Like Judas of old
You lie and deceive
A world war can be won
You want me to believe
But I see through your eyes
And I see through your brain
Like I see through the water
That runs down my drain
You fasten all the triggers
For the others to fire
Then you sit back and watch
When the death count gets higher
You hide in your mansion
While the young people’s blood
Flows out of their bodies
And is buried in the mud
You’ve thrown the worst fear
That can ever be hurled
Fear to bring children
Into the world
For threatening my baby
Unborn and unnamed
You ain’t worth the blood
That runs in your veins
How much do I know
To talk out of turn
You might say that I’m young
You might say I’m unlearned
But there’s one thing I know
Though I’m younger than you
That even Jesus would never
Forgive what you do
Let me ask you one question
Is your money that good?
Will it buy you forgiveness
Do you think that it could?
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul
And I hope that you die
And your death’ll come soon
I will follow your casket
By the pale afternoon
And I’ll watch while you’re lowered
Down to your deathbed
And I’ll stand o’er your grave
‘Til I’m sure that you’re dead

He’s a miner
And his daddy builds guitars
While he fights the cancer
caused by Agent Orange

When his son tried to enlist
Dad said “Son, don’t do this”
You should get a job
And raise a family

When I heard his story
It made me wanna cry
Cause I thought of all the good boys who had gone off and died
So I told him I was sorry, and what I felt

But he told me he’s just playing the cards
He was dealt

He’s a veteran
And he fights for us to be free
But now he does it with a pen
And not a rifle

He’s got a baby
And a good strong wife
But he lost most of his hearin’
Defending oil

But he could hear my song
And it made him wanna cry
When he thought of all his good friends, who had gone off and died
Though we barely knew each other, I still knew how he felt

But he told me he’s just playing the cards he was dealt

There’s a dream they like to sell us about the glory of war
But I’m not buying this time it’s not worth fighting for
Cause if you don’t end up inside the ground, or in pieces on the floor
There’s so many nightmares left behind
It’s enough to make you lose your mind

So listen to the music
It’s okay to cry
When you think of all the good boys who have gone off and died
And I hope you know I’m sorry and what I felt

I guess that we’re all playin’ the cards that we were dealt
I guess that we’re all playin’ the cards that we were dealt

What do you want me to do, just stand on by?
Waiting to hear the truth, I’ve only heard the lies
Gasoline and high inflation burning up the world
Time to teach the Constitution to every boy and girl
Get back to the Constitution

Revolution
We just wanna save the nation
Revolution
Revolution
Wake up and start to pay attention
‘Cause we’ve got the solution
The Ron Paul Revolution

If there’s a will, there’s a way that I have got to find
All of these ideas in my head will drive me out of my mind
Liberty and freedom should brighten up the world
Time to teach the Constitution to every boy and girl
Get back to the Constitution

Revolution
We just wanna save the nation
Revolution
Revolution
Wake up and start to pay attention
‘Cause we’ve got the solution
The Ron Paul Revolution

Look around you everybody
Don’t let them take all your money
Media that’s screening things
The Gods are watching from the wings
And no matter what we do or say
Gets convoluted anyway
But does that mean that we have no choice?

Revolution
We just wanna save the nation
Revolution
Revolution
Wake up and start to pay attention
‘Cause we’ve got the solution
The Ron Paul Revolution

LYRICS

Early one morning I found myself crying
But what for I’m no longer quite sure
Cause my baby,
He lay by me
Forever more

My husband slept sound while I was creepin
Out the door to my lover’s arms
But still my baby,
He lay by me
Forever more

I came home stinkin of pot and whiskey
Though the law said not to drive
But still my baby,
He lay by me
Forever more

My cheatin heart, it gives me trouble
Though my man, no he doesn’t see
That his lady
She is crying
Forever more

Early this morning, I found myself crying
But what for? I guess now I’m quite sure
It’s cause my baby,
He lay by me
Forever more

It’s cause my baby,
He lay by me
Forever more

You say that I ask too much of you
But I disagree
You say I don’t understand the angles of
You and me
I try to play things straight, but there you go
now I can’t look you in the eye
I can’t stand all the things I have to do
To appeal to your wounded pride
Now you may look like honey
But you ain’t ever gonna be sweet to me
And though you may think I can be kind of funny
Well, that ain’t enough to be keeping me
You say that sometimes I walk too close
And no you won’t hold my hand
I’m tryin so very hard to cope,
Why won’t you understand?
I’m not trying to settle down,
I just wanna lay here in your arms a little while
I can’t stand all the things I have to do
To live in this perfect state of denial

Chorus

But every time I get up and try to walk away
You say please stay
Don’t leave me here all alone…
But how am I supposed to try
To put away my peace of mind
And give it all up so I can just
Wait by the phone?

Chorus

You left my place last night without even so much as a goodbye.
Did someone leave you a message that was sweeter than mine?
I’m not supposed to know, I’m not supposed to ask questions
Or you’ll call off the show, if I dare to even mention
That I may have a claim to your heart
And I might like to show it baby,
These things that you do, they’ll tear us apart
And don’t act like you don’t know it!
I’ll give up my claim to your heart,I’ll wash away those guilty pleasures
I’ll go it alone, I’ll make a new start
Cause these times they call for desperate measures
I told you time and again, that I’m not really into this game.
You woke me up this morning, and threw me out in the rain.
We can’t go on this way, this ain’t a way to treat your lover
When the only thing you’ve got to say, is “Chill babe- I’m workin under cover…”

Chorus

I need a man who will show me
Just how beautiful I can be
Not a situation that controls me,
I need a love that will make me free

Chorus

Last night I slept in the canyon
Thought I’d raise my eyes to the sky to see
Hoping to ask the right questions
Lord let the answers rain down on me

Cause I wanna feel
Your warm hands on me, my California
And I wanna buy
A one-way ticket away from home
And I’m gonna find
My way back to you my California
And see the waves upon your shores
And see the waves upon your shores

Life can be hard in the city
Sometimes some solitude can bring some clarity
All of this locked up emotion
You know I gotta let it all out of me

Cause I wanna feel
Your warm hands on me, my California
And I wanna buy
A one-way ticket away from home
And I’m gonna find
My way back to you my California
And see the waves upon your shores
And see the waves upon your shores

Cause I wanna feel
Your warm hands on me, my California
And I wanna buy
A one-way ticket away from home
And I’m gonna find
My way back to you my California
And see the waves upon your shores
And see the waves upon your shores

I’m sorry I had to wait so long for your love
I’m sorry for all of our pain
It always seems to feel like something we’ve stolen
A treasure that could be taken away

Still I can’t sleep without
I can’t eat without
I can’t dream without you
I guess I care too much
Always want your touch
I can’t be without you
My heart was so broken
But no glue seems to mend,
I’ll leave the door open
Baby it ain’t over til the end
Cause we’ve still got a castle to defend
A castle to defend

I’m sorry you lie awake and can’t dream at night
I’m sorry for all of our shame
We give it all we have, but it never seems enough
It always seems to come much too late

Still I can’t sleep without
I can’t eat without
I can’t dream without you
I guess I care too much
Always want your touch
I can’t be without you
My heart was so broken
But no glue seems to mend,
I’ll leave the door open
Baby it ain’t over til the end
Cause we’ve still got a castle to defend
A castle to defend

So when they’re storming at the gates
I’ll fight alone til my heart breaks
I believe in this imaginary love
So be my knight in shining armor
and I will be your queen

Still I can’t sleep without
I can’t eat without
I can’t dream without you
I guess I care too much
Always want your touch
I can’t be without you
My heart was so broken
But no glue seems to mend,
I’ll leave the door open
Baby it ain’t over til the end
Cause we’ve still got a castle to defend
A castle to defend

I know I don’t love you but I can’t get you off of my mind
Always thinking of you, though I ain’t the cheating kind
I sleep in my lover’s arms, am bothered by thoughts of your bed
Tryin not to think about who takes my place there instead

But you’re no good
Heartbreaker
Your dreamy eyes should hold no weight with me

Cause you’re bad news and I remember walkin this way before
Your attitude is that you always come first
I’ve played this game before and I’ve never even won a single hand
Why do I raise the stakes for the thoughts of another man?

You’re nothing but trouble but I can’t help that it turns me on
And it only adds fuel to this fire baby knowing that it’s wrong
The heat of your breath against my neck makes me weak in the knees
If I allow myself to go, you won’t tell anyone please?

But you’re no good
Heartbreaker
Your dreamy eyes should hold no weight with me

Cause you’re bad news and I remember walkin this way before
Your attitude is that you always come first
I’ve played this game before and I’ve never even won a single hand
Why do I raise the stakes for the thoughts of another man?

You know I know in my heart
On the morning after
Neither of you will bring me to
My happily ever after

Cause you’re bad news and I remember walkin this way before
Your attitude is that you always come first
I’ve played this game before and I’ve never even won a single hand
Why do I raise the stakes for the thoughts of another man?

Another day, another way
To get thrown out of home
But does it really matter what we said
Or who started it all
I never meant to piss you off
Or make you so mad

I don’t wanna disappoint but really what’s the point
When we’re not getting very much love at all
I’m not getting very much love at all

No they’ll never change
Even if we want them to
No they’ll never change
Even if it’s the right thing
Even if it’s the right thing to do
No they’ll never change
They’ll never change

So you try to give in
And give them what they wanted
Or whatever it is you thought that would be
But it’s never good enough
Cause its not who you are
To go around pretending to be somebody else

I don’t wanna disappoint but really what’s the point
When we’re not getting very much love at all
I’m not getting very much love at all

No they’ll never change
Even if we want them to
No they’ll never change
Even if it’s the right thing
Even if it’s the right thing to do
No they’ll never change
They’ll never change

I don’t wanna disappoint but really what’s the point
When we’re not getting very much love at all
I’m not getting very much love at all

No they’ll never change
Even if we want them to
No they’ll never change
Even if it’s the right thing
Even if it’s the right thing to do
No they’ll never change
They’ll never change

Most days I wake up and I’m feeling like I’m still a slave
Workin me to the bone, until I find me an early grave
You know it’s hard to find a place in this insanity
They’re always saying that’s the way that its gotta be.

But I find release in you
Manage some peace with you
You know I would get down on my knees for you
But I find release in you

Watch for the windows lock your doors so you can sleep at night
Close up the peep shows, you can never kill their appetite
You know it’s hard to find a place in this reality
Can’t stand them sayin that’s the way that its gotta be

But I find release in you
Manage some peace with you
You know I would get down on my knees for you
But I find release in you

Now the devil may be knockin at your door
And the world may crumble to the ground
But I have got all that I need in you
And everything will be alright
Everything will be alright

But I find release in you
Manage some peace with you
You know I would get down on my knees for you
But I find release in you

What do you want me to do, just stand on by?
Waiting to hear the truth, I’ve heard so many lies
I have got to keep on making my way through the world
Waking up the Evolution in every boy and girl
Waking up the Evolution

Evolution
There’s a way to make it better
Evolution
But we’ve got to do it together
Evolution
You know I need your attention
Cause we need a solution
For man-made evolution
Man-made revolution

If there’s a will, there’s a way that I have got to find
All of these ideas in my head will drive me out of my mind
I have got to keep on making my way through the world
Waking up the Evolution in every boy and girl
Waking up the Evolution

Evolution
There’s a way to make it better
Evolution
But we’ve got to do it together
Evolution
You know I need your attention
Cause we need a solution
For man-made evolution
Man-made revolution

Look around you everybody
Things right now are not so funny
Media that’s screening things
The Gods are watching from the wings
And no matter what we do or say
Gets convoluted anyway
But does that mean that we have no choice?

Evolution
There’s a way to make it better
Evolution
But we’ve got to do it together
Evolution
You know I need your attention
Cause we need a solution
For man-made evolution
Man-made revolution

I am cold and I am silent
And I‘m hoping for a chance to vent
But I am broken, can‘t say too much
Disengaged and numb, I feel out of touch
I find myself needing release
Behind the drapes I have no peace
But I look forward and try to focus
Not to keep my mind on hocus pocus

Don’t let me down tonight
Too much pain is caused with every fight
Just let me hang my head down low
Sometimes my heart beats steady but a little bit slow
And I’ll tell you one thing, that I won’t let me down tonight

If I‘m distant and can‘t explain myself
I guess I‘ve been beat down
Some things just can‘t be felt
And still I breathe in, and keep moving forward
I won‘t hit the ground
When I am lowered
I find the strength within myself
To put up with the pity and the weight of this hell
And I am stronger than you’ve been believing
I just turn out the lights to hide my grieving

Don’t let me down tonight
Too much pain is caused with every fight
Just let me hang my head down low
Sometimes my heart beats steady but a little bit slow
And I’ll tell you one thing, that I won’t let me down tonight

Who are you to judge me?
You ain’t walked a mile in my shoes
Who are you to tell me?
Who I should be and what I should do?

Don’t let me down tonight
Too much pain is caused with every fight
Just let me hang my head down low
Sometimes my heart beats steady but a little bit slow
And I’ll tell you one thing, that I won’t let me down tonight

If you wanna take a trip here baby
And rest your weary bones
Take a seat back, relax, get silly
It’s been a long hard road

Cause you’ve got fire beneath your wings
And you know that it’s gonna burn when you fly
The world has shown you a thousand things
And it’s hard to know the reasons why

So don’t stop believing in what we’re living for
Don’t stop believing
Don’t stop believing this our life
And we won’t let them take it away
No we won’t let anyone take it away
So don’t stop believing
Don’t stop believing

The nights are long in the cold hard city
You’re always up too late
You’ve been on ice for a long time baby
You can’t just sit there and wait

Cause you’ve got fire beneath your wings
And you know that it’s gonna burn when you fly
The world has shown you a thousand things
And it’s hard to know the reasons why

So don’t stop believing in what we’re living for
Don’t stop believing
Don’t stop believing this our life
And we won’t let them take it away
No we won’t let anyone take it away
So don’t stop believing
Don’t stop believing

But you’ve gotta keep fighting
Even though you don’t know who’s waging this war
But you’ve gotta keep fighting
Just be sure you know just what you’re fighting for
What you’re fighting for

So don’t stop believing in what we’re living for
Don’t stop believing
Don’t stop believing this our life
And we won’t let them take it away
No we won’t let anyone take it away
So don’t stop believing
Don’t stop believing

I get cold and weary
Thinking about losing my soul
Hungry and tired need some drinkin’
‘Cause I’ve got to be feeding my soul

I’ve come to feel so old
And I’ve come to feel so old

I feel a need to bleed you
Take all your money and run
Leave you with nothing to live on
‘Cause I’ve got to be having my fun

I’ve come to feel so old
And I’ve come to feel so old

I’ve lost my way through temptation
Relations have nothing to say
Lost all connection with loved ones
But just look at how far I’ve come going my own way

I’ve come to feel so old
And I’ve come to feel so old
