Oh What A Life Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Believer

I'm just a believer
That things will get better
Some can take it or leave it
But I don't wanna let it go
[x2]

I'm a little bit sheltered
I'm a little bit scared
I'm a little bit nervous
I'm goin' no where

I'm a little bit jealous
I'm a little bit slow
I'm a little bit hurtful
And I don't wanna let it go

No...
And I don't wanna let it go

I'm a little bit angry
When every one's around
But I get a little lonely
When no one's out

I feel my demons
Misleadin' me

I'm just a believer
That things will get better
Some can take it or leave it
But I don't wanna let it go
[x2]

Maybe when I get older
And I'm in the ground
The weight's off my shoulders
It was bringin' me down

I've never been that lucky
I've never tasted fame
I'm always lookin' for something
But I hate changin'

Time fades
There's no space
As life breaks new ground

I'm just a believer
That things will get better
Some can take it or leave it
But I don't wanna let it go
[x2]

It doesn't matter what is out there
My head is spinning and it won't bail out
It doesn't matter what is out there

Cause time fades
There's no space
As life breaks new ground

I'm just a believer
That things will get better
Some can take it or leave it
But I don't wanna let it go
[x3]

Think About It

In the jungle that we roam
To search and find and to explore
All we all we all know
All we all we don't know
Pushing back remove the leaves
To find something bigger than me
All we all we all know
All we all we don't know
So far so good
So don't turn back
So far so good
It's been hard
Trying to find the best of it
I'm always hung up on the risk
Don't over think about it
Hard
When all that's left is rearranged
And everything is in the way
Don't over think about it
Don't over think about it
If I think too hard and never leave
I'll watch the world turn without me
All we all we all know
All we all we don't know
To hide from lions and the wolves
Would never break the fears we hold
All we all we all know
All we all we don't know
So far so good
So don't turn back
So far so good
It's been hard
Trying to find the best of it
I'm always hung up on the risk
Don't over think about it
Hard
When all that's left is rearranged
And everything is in the way
Don't over think about it
Don't over think about it
So far so good
So don't turn back
So far so good

Best Day Of My Life

I had a dream so big and loud
I jumped so high I touched the clouds
Wo-o-o-o-o-oh [x2]
I stretched my hands out to the sky
We danced with monsters through the night
Wo-o-o-o-o-oh [x2]

I'm never gonna look back
Woah, never gonna give it up
No, please don't wake me now

Oo-o-o-o-oo
This is gonna be the best day of my li-ife
My li-i-i-i-i-ife
Oo-o-o-o-oo
This is gonna be the best day of my li-ife
My li-i-i-i-i-ife

I howled at the moon with friends
And then the sun came crashing in
Wo-o-o-o-o-oh [x2]
But all the possibilities
No limits just epiphanies
Wo-o-o-o-o-oh [x2]

I'm never gonna look back
Woah, never gonna give it up
No, just don't wake me now

Oo-o-o-o-oo
This is gonna be the best day of my li-ife
My li-i-i-i-i-ife
Oo-o-o-o-oo
This is gonna be the best day of my li-ife
My li-i-i-i-i-ife

I hear it calling outside my window
I feel it in my soul (soul)
The stars were burning so bright
The sun was out 'til midnight
I say we lose control (control)

This is gonna be the best day of my li-ife
My li-i-i-i-i-ife
Oo-o-o-o-o
This is gonna be the best day of my li-ife
My li-i-i-i-i-ife
This is gonna be, this is gonna be, this is gonna be
The best day of my life
Everything is looking up, everybody up now
This is gonna be the best day of my li-ife
My li-i-i-i-i-ife

Luck

How can we make amends when we said all we said?
I call and you don't pick up
How can I say instead that I hope it's for the best?
I won't, and I won't give up

I'm sorry, Mother
I know I let you down
I'm sorry for how I up and left this town

How can we push aside all the bad and make it right
Now you got me all choked up
I'm sorry, brother
I know I let you down
I'm sorry for how I up and left this town
Please just listen cause I don't ask for much
I am my own man
I make my own luck

How can we both pick sides when we know nothing's right?
Open up the door that's shut
How can I have my pride and drink away my soul tonight?
Sorrow's filling up my cup

I'm sorry, Father
I know I let you down
I'm sorry for how I up and left this town
Please just listen cause I don't ask for much
I am my own man
I make my own luck

Well some birds aren't meant to be caged
And I just can't see the light of day

Please forgive me
I can't remember
Please forgive me
no one is calling
Please forgive me
I can't believe it
No...

Gonna pick myself up, so I don't let this ever grow
Even if I mess up, I won't let this ever go
It's hard to stay
It's hard to stay
Cause some birds aren't meant to be caged

How can I set us free?
I'm what you taught me to be
Shouldn't that be enough?
It's time that we make amends
Let's forget the things we said
You know we were all just talk

I'm sorry, Mother
I know I let you down
I'm sorry, Father
I didn't stick around
Please just listen cause I don't ask for much
I am my own man
I make my own luck
Please just listen cause I don't ask for much
Just like my old man, I make my own luck

And some birds are meant to be caged
And some just won't see the light of day

Please forgive me
I can't remember
Please forgive me
No one is coming
Please forgive me
I can't believe it
No...

Gonna pick myself up, so I don't let this ever grow
Even if I mess up, I won't let this ever go
It's hard to stay
It's hard to stay
Cause some birds aren't meant to be caged

Please just listen cause I don't ask for much
I am my own man
I make my own luck
Please just listen cause I don't ask for much
I am my own man
I make my own luck

Trouble

We grow apart just to be on our own
And we walk right next to all that we have known
Give me your hand, we can climb further up
And we climb the trees and the forest seems to be bigger now
Oh we had so much more

I knew she was trouble from the first kiss
I could tell that something wasn't right with you, with you

We take our time to see what is up ahead
But we're scared of the past and what is left
We'll stay inside and never let out our hands
And we'll pretend that the world, it will never end
No, it will never end

I knew she was trouble from the first kiss
I could tell that something wasn't right with you, with you
One two three four
I could feel it blowing in the night wind
I could tell that something wasn't right with you, with you

Why don't you come back down so we can turn it around
Why don't you ever know just to let it go
'Cause nothing comes around for you
So bring me back from one to two
And tell me what else I could do

I knew she was trouble from the first kiss
I could tell that something wasn't right with you, with you
One two three four
I could feel it blowing in the night wind
I could tell that something wasn't right with you, with you

Why don't you come back down so we can turn it around

Hit It

Some say if you don't go then you won't know how to let go when you gotta let it swerve

Some say if you don't try then you won't know how to get by now you said it wouldn't hurt - oh no!
If I knew then what I should have known now

Up and down jump off the deep end wreck this house I should have left with you, with you
No way out I met your best friend she went down and I should have made my move with you

I shoulda, I woulda, I coulda but I didn't
Hit it!

Some say if you break down
Then you touch ground
Then you're dropped down
Then you got a lot to learn

But I say pick it back up
Throw it on now
Make it stack up
'Cause tonight we're gonna burn it down

If I knew then what I should've known all along
Up and down jump off the deep end wreck this house I should have left with you, with you
No way out I met your best friend she went down and I should have made my move with you
Messed up now pissed off the in crowd break this down and my eyes are set on you, on you
We know now I'm not your best friend broke all vows I'll make it up to you, to you

I shoulda, I woulda, I coulda but I didn't
Hit it!

I'm feeling lucky lay all my cards down nothing can stop me tonight we go all out
I'm feeling lucky I'll bet my hometown nothing can stop us now

I say if you don't know then you go slow or you don't go don't be a no show just let go let's get stoned from the top down to the down low, down low, let's go

I say if you don't know then you go slow or you don't go don't be a no show just let go let's get stoned from the top down to the down low, down low, let's go

You [x3]

Up and down jump off the deep end wreck this house I should have left with you, with you
No way out I met your best friend she went down and I should have made my move with you
Messed up now pissed off the in crowd break this down and my eyes are set on you, on you
We know now I'm not your best friend broke all vows I'll make it up to you, to you

I shoulda, I woulda, I coulda but I didn't
Hit it!

Home

I've got these letters tattooed on my arm
That remind me each second of where I come from
And the long hard road to get me back home

Back to my mama who raised me up right
And back to my lady who I held every night
It's a long hard road trying to get home

I'd been gone now for too long

[Chorus:]
I'm not trying to stop a hurricane
I'm not trying to shake the ground below
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home

I'm not trying to part the ocean waves
I'm not trying to overthrow the throne
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home
I'm just trying to get home

I've got this image engraved in my mind
Of a light that I had in a whole different time
It still breathes and lives at the end of the road

I've seen mountains and valleys through my missing days
But I never once parted with how you begged me to stay
I will run down that long hard and treacherous road to get home

[Chorus]

I've been gone for so long
But my heart it carries on
As it pounds like a drum
On my journey back home

I've been gone for so long
But my heart it carries on
I won't give up

[Chorus]

I'm just trying to get home [X2]

Love

Remember when we were lost at sea?
We would look at the bright night sky
Thinking of, what we could be
What we could be
How to spend our lives
Remember when we had nothing left?
We were strung out in the cold
Holding on, trying to save our breath
Trying to save our breath
We would not let go
Whoa
Through the good, through the bad and ugly
Whoa
We'll conquer anything
Cuz
One day we're gonna come back
And laugh at it all
One day we're look at the past
With love, love
One day we're gonna come back
And relive those thoughts
One day we're look at the past
With love, love
With love, love
Remember down in the forest heart
We were lost, losing hope and faith
We put our trust in counting start
We were counting stars
Trying to find our way
Remember up on the mountain top
Looking out on the rocks below
Thinking God, we will never stop
We will never stop
No we won't let go
Cuz
One day we're gonna come back
And laugh at it all
One day we're look at the past
With love, love
One day we're gonna come back
And relive those thoughts
One day we're look at the past
With love, love
(Love, love)
Like a scene from the past
Where we look back and laugh
With love, love
A thought like a flash
Black and white, hope it lasts
With love, love
Like a scene from the past
Where we look back and laugh
With love, love
A thought like a flash
Black and white, hope it lasts
With love
Cuz
One day we're gonna come back
And laugh at it all
One day we're look at the past
With love, love
One day we're gonna come back
And relive those thoughts
One day we're look at the past
With love, love
(Love, love)
With love, love

Heart Of Stone

Oh now you never come around
And then you're spacing out tonight
I bet I feel it in my chest
The visions in your head they're all lies
Oh ya it's true
Oh ya it's true
Well I
I need a friend tonight
I need to make it right
And now I'm tired of thinking
In spite
I'm always in the right
I never made the time
It's all the smiles I'm faking
Oh yeah it's true
You've got this heart of stone
I'm never breaking through
Feels like a dead end road
So take that any way you want to
You've got this heart of stone
That's keeping me from you
If I break that you hate that so take that any way you want to
Inhale
Another thought fails
Falling off the rails
Tonight
Untamed
A c-c-crazy train
I'm always yours to blame
In your eyes
Shake a shake it off now
Then you're take a taking off now
All around so you can shoot me down I should have gotten out before you started begging
Oh yeah it's true
You've got this heart of stone
I'm never breaking through
Feels like a dead end road
So take that any way you want to
You've got this heart of stone
That's keeping me from you
If I break that you hate that so take that any way you want to
If only I could live a little bit longer
You've got this heart of stone
I'm never breaking through
Feels like a dead end road
So take that any way you want to
You've got this heart of stone
That's keeping me from you
If I break that you hate that so take that any way you want to

Ghost

In the morning when the sun breaks free
A reflection that I know I've seen
In the night it's haunting me
A lonely ghost, a lonely ghost

Ever since I was just a child
I've seen the visions in my sleep
Of a man roaming through the wild
With all these ghosts, a lonely ghost

But you can't breathe in if you don't breathe out

'Cuz it's a new day, we're gonna go far
Knuckle down, trim and shake off the dead weight
You know what they say
You can't hide from your ghosts

'Cuz it's a new day, I wanna go far
Break it down, jump the gun, find a new way
You know what they say
I'm stuck here living with all these ghosts, a lonely ghost

Hey ey ey ey ey ey
Hey ey ey ey ey ey

I'm looking back at a room for two
The skeletons of all we knew
That we were only broke and bruised
As you held me close along the coast

When the morning settles in
And I've learned how to live with it
I can't rewind all the things I did
And all these ghosts, the lonely ghosts

But you can't breathe in if you don't breathe out

'Cuz it's a new day, we're gonna go far
Knuckle down, trim and shake off the dead weight
You know what they say
You can't hide from your ghosts

'Cuz it's a new day, I wanna go far
Break it down down, jump the gun, find a new way
You know what they say
I'm stuck here living with all these ghosts, a lonely ghost

Hey ey ey ey ey ey
Hey ey ey ey ey ey

Now we know we'll never be alone, alone
And we know I wanna be alone, alone

Hey ey ey ey ey ey
Hey ey ey ey ey ey

'Cuz it's a new day, we're gonna go far
Knuckle down, trim and shake off the dead weight
You know what they say
You can't hide from your ghosts

'Cuz it's a new day, I wanna go far
Break it down down, jump the gun, find a new way
You know what they say
I'm stuck here living with all these ghosts, a lonely ghost

Hey ey ey ey ey ey
Hey ey ey ey ey ey

A lonely ghost

Oh, What A Life

There was snow, There was snow
Stretched for miles and more
Where we buried, where we buried
Our souls

Oh I long, Oh I long
For them days left and gone
Where we sang and where we danced to a brighter song

But now I look upon a field with bodies stretched out and I feel nothing
But something's burning in my soul I let it lose control and I'm in, Oh God I've sinned

But I tried so hard, and we tried so hard
And it's a long long road, that you told me so
Yeah I tried so hard, to forget where we are
And all we do is laugh and we sing

And we laughed oh, and we cried and thought oh, what a life
And we laughed oh, and we cried and thought oh, what a life
And we laughed, and we cried and thought oh, what a life

But I tried so hard, but we killed our hearts
In valleys low, I hear the trumpets blow
Yeah, I tried so hard, yet I'm lost and scarred
And I'm filled with regret yet I sing

And we laughed oh, and we cried and thought oh, what a life.
And we laughed oh, and we cried and thought oh, what a life.
And we laughed, and we cried and thought oh, what a life.
