Rescue Me

Rescue Me

Let's turn back our hearts
And get lost in conversation
Is it all that we can be?

Moments from the start
Far from all this consternation
We were all that we could see

But if time is all we're hoping for
And if time is all we need
Will you one day show up at my door
Will you come and rescue me?

Rescue me, love
Come and rescue me...

Continents apart
Infinite, it seems, the distance
Still too close for me to breathe

Compliments to heart
Words do fall with such arrangement
As to hide our misery

But if time is all we're hoping for
And if time is all we need
There will never be a moment more
When your touch can rescue me

Rescue me, love
Come and rescue me...

Night may fall like rain
But light will crawl upon your face
And you'll remember me say
You'll remember me say...

Rescue me, love
Come and rescue me
Rescue me, love
Come and rescue me
Rescue me, love
Come and rescue me
Rescue me, boy
Come and rescue me

Night may fall like rain
But light will crawl upon your face
And you'll remember me say
It's too late

Yesterday

Yesterday

Over and over again
Lover, it's over again
Touch me and breathe me in
Proving it's nothing but sin

And time goes on — we're getting older
The weight that's on your shoulders
Is breaking your back now
And love drags on, colder and colder
The embers that smolder
And smother your life out

So let's turn it back today
You always found a way into my heart
Into my heart
And love, let the record play
Our song from yesterday, and sing it loud
Let's sing it loud

Winter is passing us by
Dancing in soft lullabies
Holding a taste of us tight
Stolen by years of vain summer nights

And time goes on — we're getting older
The world that's on my shoulders
Is breaking my back now
And love drags on, colder and colder
The embers that smolder
And shutter the night out

So let's turn it back today
You always found a way into my heart
Into my heart
And love, let the record play
Our song from yesterday, and sing it loud
Let's sing it loud

Over and over again...

Florida

Florida

Run back to the ocean 
To all the lives we lead 
Down the coast of Florida 
Pass the memories to me 

Lovers still the moment 
Driving in the rain 
We could steal forever 
If I could just come home to stay 

And I don't mean to take your time 
When my heart is on the line 

I need you, love, beside me 
I need your eyes in mine 
I try to say it's alright 
But I'm so afraid of lost time 
You tell me you'll be waiting 
But how long will you wait 
Till you don't need me anymore 

Our song and simple story 
Are on the A1A 
But your touch and all your beauty 
Are a thousand miles away 

And I don't mean to waste your life 
Love, my heart is no more mine 

I need you, love, beside me 
I need your eyes in mine 
I try to say it's alright 
But I'm so afraid of lost time 
You tell me you'll be waiting 
But how long will you wait 
Till you don't need me anymore 

I'm not afraid of tomorrow 
If you can give me today 
But if it's too much to ask 
I promise I'll be ok 

I need you, love, beside me 
I need your hand in mine 
I try to say it's alright 
But I'm so afraid of lost time 
You tell me you'll be waiting 
But how long will you wait 
Till you don't need me anymore 

Run back to the ocean 
To all the lives we lead 
Down the coast of Florida 
But if I could just come home 
If I could just come home to stay

Our Winter

Our Winter

Three years so much can change 
Our lives the fates arrange 
Your heart no longer mine 
To take or leave behind 

There's never a question 
And no need for answers 
But we were much simpler 
When this was our winter 

Into the night I drive 
Running from city lights 
You should be here with me 
Then maybe you'd believe 

There's never a question 
And no need for answers 
But we were much simpler 
When this was our winter 

Our love is a room 
Darker than night 
Colder than hate 
But stronger than life 
Crumbling down 
Battered by time 
Ridden with fear 
Infested with lies 

So let's burn it down 
Let's burn it down 
Let's burn it down 
And build it anew 

These years have come and gone 
And still we sing this song 
Of windswept winter nights 
And dreams of other lives 

There's never a question 
And no need for answers 
But we were much simpler 
When this was our winter

Wait

Wait

Shut your bright eyes 
Just drink this down 
Breathe deep black sky 
Painting this town 
Come here, come now 

I'll wait for you 
Somehow I'll wait for you 

Hush, love, don't cry 
I won't let you drown 
In my grave I'll lie 
Till your love I've found 
To your heart I'm bound 

I'll wait for you 
Somehow I'll wait for you 
And now I'll wait for you 
Somehow I'll wait for you 

Tear through the night 
Screaming it loud 
Your name with mine 
No sweeter sound 
Come, love, come now 

I'll wait for you 
Somehow I'll wait for you 
And now I'll wait for you 
Somehow I'll wait for you

December

December

The times I remember are far more than embers of 
Long lost nights in silent December 
When we'd sit there in our childish liturgy 

When the hand I was holding was the hand that was scolding me 
And I let go in the moment you were trembling 
To see if you would get up off the floor 

And I'm in love with the you I knew before 

And in my mind you inscribed every contour of 
Thick disguise that encased your sorrows 
As you whispered, "forever I am yours" 

Then drive I did when your words weren't so welcoming 
And I gave up as the sun was beckoning 
The sky to scream in colors from me you'd torn 

And I'm in love with the you I knew before 
And I don't know if I'll love you anymore 

Soft and sweetly, too discreetly 
Hide me from your loves anew 
Come December I'll remember 
Everything they never knew 

I'm in love with the you I knew before 
And I don't know if I'll love you anymore 
Cause I'm in love with the you I knew before 
And I don't know if I'll love you anymore 

Waste, don't waste my time 
Tear your heart from mine 
Save your energy for the next love you'll run away from

On My Mind

On My Mind

I can't get you off my mind today 
It's funny how we learn to say the things that push us far away 
From all we want and all we shouldn't need 
But you're all I want and everything I want to be 

And she said, "did you hear the sky is falling? 
And no one's come to save me from your face" 
And he said, "did you see the sun stop burning 
When it stepped outside and saw an angel fall from grace?" 

And some days there is nothing left to say 
So I sit and dream and make believe that you are not so far away 
From all I want and all that I should need 
Now all I want is something I can't be 

And she said, "did you hear the sky is falling? 
And no one's come to save me from your face" 
And he said, "did you see the sun stop burning 
When it stepped outside and saw an angel fall from grace?" 

Broken and crawling out 
A token of all your doubt 
Chasing the fear within 
And fighting the tears without 

And she said, "can't you see the shame I hide? 
No, cause you're too wrapped up and tangled in your travesty 
Of a life you say you want to leave behind 
And so you'll run away and leave you on my mind 
On my mind..." 

I can't get you off my mind today

Someday

Someday

Don't ask me what my name is 
Or I'll never cry again 
Don't tell me what the day is 
Or I may never let go again 

And if you feel the same as I do now 
Would you wait another moment for me now? 
Don't give away the truth yet 
Just wait a little longer now 

Cause someday we'll be in love 
And they'll wonder what could keep us apart 
Cause someday I'll find the trust 
To let you hold this fragile heart 
Cause someday I will wander your way 
But today I'll stay 

You wonder at my reason 
I wander in your eyes 
I'd tell you I'm not ready 
I'd tell you but I'd lie 

I'm letting go of what's behind me now 
So wait another moment for me now 
I'd give away the truth, love 
If I could tell you what it was 

Cause someday we'll be in love 
And they'll wonder what could keep us apart 
Cause someday I'll find the trust 
To let you hold this fragile heart 
Cause someday I will wander your way 

Wait, wait - love stay 
I've tried but is it too late? 
Wait, wait - someday 
Just not this time, no it's not the same 

Can't you see I'm falling apart 
Cause, lover, I don't know where you are 
But someday they won't keep us apart 
Cause, lover, you'll have stolen my heart 

Wait, wait - love stay 
I've tried but is it too late? 
Wait, wait - someday 
Just not this time, no it's not the same 
Wait, wait - love stay 
Hold tight until I speak your name 
Wait, wait - one more day 
And you're mine 

But if you feel the same as I do now 
Would you wait another moment for me now? 
Don't give away the truth, love 
Just wait a little longer 

Cause someday we'll be in love 
And they'll wonder what could keep us apart 
Cause someday I'll find the trust 
To let you hold this fragile heart 
Cause someday I will wander your way 
But today I'll stay

Twenty Years

Twenty Years

Wonder when it stops 
Beating 'round the moments 
Wonder whose the fault 
Beating down the bushes 

Was I all to blame? 
All I wanted was to be the rain running down your face 
If I have to change 
Twenty years could all be gone today 

Tell me when it hurts 
All the pulls and pushings 
Beneath your skin I've found 
A memory worth eliding 

Take back all my shame 
All I wanted was to be the dirt you walked on every day 
If I can be plain 
Twenty years is a long, long time to throw away 

Are you worth it? 
No, you - you're worth it? 
You can't be 
Are you worth it, worth it? 
No, you - you're worth it. 
You're worth it? 

Was I all to blame? 
All I wanted was one small glance to say it was ok 
If this is what it takes 
Twenty years will all be gone today 

Are you? 
You're worth it 
You're worth it

Turn

Turn

Wait while the moment falls apart 
Cause I'm still getting past this part 
Your eyes will never look on mine 
Except with secondary sight 

Maybe we were right 
Maybe I was wrong 
Only time can tell, but time is gone 

So turn 
Turn me upside down until I catch my breath 
Spin me all around until there's nothing left 
But everything we were and everything that never can be again 
Come on, love, and turn 

Put back the pieces that you stole 
All but the center of my soul 
Take back the words you try to hide 
Cause the love you claim I've found impossible to find 

Turn 
Turn me upside down until I catch my breath 
Spin me all around until there's nothing left 
But everything we were and everything that never can be again 
Come on, love, and turn 
Come on, love, and turn 

Love, you've got another try 
But I'm still fighting for my life 
Turn, turn me upside down 
Until I catch my... 

Spin me all around until there's nothing left 
But everything we were and everything that never can be again 
Come on, love, and turn 
Come on, love, and turn

Less Than Alive

Less Than Alive

These are the words I want to say: 
Darling, I loved you, but it's not the same 
You waited far too long to see 
And now it's your own fault that we can never be 

I didn't ask you for your help 
I never begged to see you in my dreams 
And I would die before falling to my knees for you 
And love, here's your chance to be free from actuality 

It's a mistake 
It was a chance we'd take 
We bend and then we break 
This is the line 
For ever a day goes by 
That we're less than alive 

I just have to close my eyes to see 
Your brilliant lies that twist and turn inside of me 
You're running me through with open arms 
But you had your chance and now it's my turn to move on 

It's a mistake 
It was a chance we'd take 
We bent and now we break 
This is the line 
For ever a day goes by 
That we're less than alive 

For days and nights I'd lie awake 
And feel your hand brush on my face 
And there I'd wait, but there you'd stay 
Content in all your misplaced faith 
There's nothing I want more 
Than to tear you from my heart with a fatal blow 
Get out of my mind - you've lost your hold 
And there's nowhere for us to go but down again 

It's a mistake 
It was a chance we'd take 
We bent and now we break 
This is the line 
For never a day goes by 
That we're more than a lie 

It's a mistake 
This is a chance I'll take 
To save me from your face 
This is the line 
For ever a day goes by 
That we're less than alive

Right

Right

You waste the dawn cause you're wide awake 
But sleeping still inside 
I'm wasted now and too far gone 
To hold on to my pride 

What would it take for you to come here? 
What would it take for you to lose your fear 
To give into this life? 
What would it take for you to be here - 
Just be here by my side? 
What would it take for this to be clear - 
That I would throw this life away 
If you would say you feel the same? 

I taste your breath from miles away 
Keeping me alive 
Just face the truth that this is not fake 
And forget all their lies 

What would it take for you to come here? 
What would it take for you to lose your fear 
To give into this life? 
What would it take for you to be here - 
Just be here by my side? 
What would it take for this to be clear - 
That I would throw this life away 
If you would say you feel the same? 

You know that this isn't in your mind 
So don't give in now, love, please don't hide 
We're almost leaving them behind 
Just take my hand and you'll know it's right
