Helios Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Hold My Hand

I found a picture in my basement
My face a hundred years ago
But I don't wanna do like he did
So full of pride and all alone

Escape is in my blood
The fear is in my bones
But I don't wanna walk that road
Please, help me?

Hold my hand,
I hear ghost calling.
Help me stand,
Even if the sky is falling.
And I want you to know,
I can't do it alone.
Hold my hand, my hand, my hand.

This is the burden that I carry
And it goes back a hundred years
The lovely shit I did,
I am done with it
He's got every right to leave
But stay with me

Hold my hand,
I can hear the ghost calling.
And help me stand,
Even if the sky is falling.
And I want you to know,
I can't do it alone.
Hold my hand, my hand, my hand

Hold my hand, hold my hand [2x]

You're the reason why,
I can write a different story
Lift me up, lift me up
I'm falling on my knees again, baby

Hold my hand,
I feel the ghost calling
Help me stand,
I can see the sky falling

Hold my hand,
I can hear the ghost calling.
Help me stand,
I can see the sky falling
And I need you to know,
I can't do it alone.
Hold my hand, my hand, my hand

Hold my hand, hold my hand
I need you now
Hold my hand, hold my hand
I need you to
Hold my hand, hold my hand
I can hear the ghost calling
Hold my hand, hold my hand

Love Don't Die

If I know one thing, that's true
It ain't what you say, it's what you do
And you don't say much, yeah, that's true
But I listen when you do

A thousand years go by
But love don't die

If I know one thing, that's true
It's that I'm never leaving you
And you don't say much, yeah, that's true
But I lose it when you do

Don't let them tell no lie
Love don't die

No matter where we go
Or even if we don't
And even if they try
They'll never take my body from your side
Love don't die

If there is one thing, that's true
It's not what I say, it's what I do
And I say too much, yeah, that's true
So just listen to what I do

A thousand years go by
But love don't die

No matter where we go
Or even if we don't
And even if they try
They'll never take my body from your side
Love don't die

She can break it up
She can burn it down
You can box it in
Bury it in the ground
You can close it off
And turn it away
Try to keep it down,
Six feet in the ground

But love don't die

No matter where we go
Or even if we don't
And even if they try
They'll never take my body from your side
Love don't die

No matter where we go
Or even if we don't
I'd like to watch them try
They'll never take my body from your side
Love don't die

Give It Away

Come and turn it up
You're gonna get that gold
I see it in your eyes
More than your hands can hold

There's something that you know
Don't matter where you go
Baby tell me when it's over, cause we can never lose
Go on and light it up
And let me see you do your thing like you were born again

Free, love is free, love is free
Come on and give it away
Come on and give it away now
Free, love is free, love is free
Why don't you give it away?
Why don't you give it away?

Come and walk that walk
Across the seven seas
Come on and start this fire
Bigger than you and me

There's something that you know
Don't matter where you go
If you give it all away it's gonna come around
Don't get it all switched up
Baby just do your thing

Free, love is free, love is free
Come on and give it away
Why don't you give it away now?
Free, love is free, love is free
So try to give it away
Come on and give it away now

Take my hand and lead me on
Take my hand and lead me home
Take my hand and lead me away now, away now
Away now, away now, away now, away now

Free, love is free, love is free
Why don't you give it away?
Why don't you give it away? Say
Free, love is free, love is free
Why don't you give it away?
Come on and give it away

Take my hand and lead me on
(Free, love is free, love is free)
So take my hand and lead me on
(Free, love is free, love is free)
Take my hand and lead me away
(Free, love is free, love is free)
Why don't you give it away?
Come on and give it away now

Closer To Me

I take two steps forward and don't look back
I buried my soul just to cover my tracks
So I'm like a dirty cop with blood on my hands
And I know it won't be long

I'm smoking cigarettes in the laundry mat
I'm wonderin what's next and where it's at
I got a future that's full with dirty cash
Oh I know it won't be long

Have you ever done something so wrong?
Won't you come a little bit closer to me?
Come a little bit closer

They've got a thousand bucks bounty on my head
The power line is down and they want us dead
I gotta know right now, baby are you in?
Cause that door don't look too strong

Did you move all alone?
Won't you come a little bit closer to me?
Come a little bit closer now
Just a little bit closer
Oh, a little bit close to me

Everyone pities someone else
And eyes are red, they don't hold sense
But she keeps dancing in company

So come a little bit closer to me
Come on, baby
Come a little bit closer now
Just a little bit close baby
Come a little bit closer to me

Hurricane

She's so fierce and full of that fire.
What's the boy to do?
She yells and I crumble,
she's got the power.
She's barely five foot two.
She's a hurricane (hurricane).

I see the waves crashing in the harbor just beyond the break.
I should run and hide with the others but I can't look away.
She's a hurricane.

I hear thunder, but I won't run, I won't run.

I wanna meet her.
I wanna see her dancing in the street.
I wanna feel her, I wanna hold her body close to me.
Yeah, yeah.
But she's a hurricane.
Oh, hurricane, yeah, yeah.

Lost in the riot, peace and quiet, and the one I lust.
I'll be buzzing, she'll be mine from dust to dust.
She's a hurricane. Yeah, I hear thunder.
I won't run, I won't run.

The sun is rising, the rain is falling.
I wanna give you all that's left of me.
I will run. I will run into the hurricane.
(I will run, I will run.)
You're my hurricane.
(I will run, I will run.) Hurricane.

She's a hurricane.

Keep On Wanting

Everything you want in broken pieces on the floor
And everything you thought you'd ever need
But it's not what you want but matters and such you want more
So go on, lie to yourself but don't lie to me

And there's the door
Didn't quit but now I believe you don't need this
Evermore
Yeah tonight lights up, show the town what you can

Open up your broken heart
And keep on wanting
Fallen saints and fallen stars
But it don't mean nothing
Everybody feels left out of a house they can't get in
So open up your broken
And keep on wanting
So keep on wanting

There's two kinds of people, those who try and those who don't
And only time will tell which one you were
And it's alright if you don't know which way you're gonna go
Just don't be afraid to feel it all

And there's the door
Didn't quit but now I believe you don't need this
Evermore
Yea tonight lights up, show the town what you can

Open up your broken heart
And keep on wanting
Fallen saints and fallen stars
But it don't mean nothing
Everybody feels left out of a house they can't get in
So open up your broken
And keep on wanting
So keep on wanting

Open up
You will find the way to go
Just take the cup
You may be stronger than you know

So open up your broken heart
And keep on wanting
Fallen saints and fallen stars
But it don't mean nothing
Everybody feels left out of a house they can't get in
So open up your broken
And keep on wanting
So keep on wanting
So keep on wanting
Keep on wanting

Keep on wanting, keep on
Keep on wanting, keep on
Keep on wanting, keep on
Keep on wanting, keep on

Our Last Days

Sunset, home town, America
Roads I used to run
These walls used to hold heroes
Black and white, I'm gone

I can show you all the places that we used to go
That ain't there no more
But hold up, dear darling, it's alright
'Cause I am sure

This love will spin now and always
These hearts will burn till our last days

When you're young you just gotta know
What it's all about
Then you're old with your head full of memories
You could do without

It's enough to make you wonder
Can anything last at all
This broken sound
But you may be the one place I'm sure about

This love will spin now and always
These hearts will burn till our last days

Have you had enough?
Have you had enough?

These hearts will burn till our last days
This love will spin now and always

These hearts will burn till our last days

Break Your Plans

I wish I had cheated
At least that's a reason
I'd understand why you're leaving now

We both stopped breathing
It could not last
I guess I'm just afraid to ask

But what if you don't?
What if you stay and...

Break your plans tonight
Lay your hand in mine
There's no guarantee we'll make it, make this thing right
But break your plans for me tonight
Tonight...

You call this closure
It's barely over
How do you move on so fast?

Maybe there's someone
Maybe it's all gone
I guess I'm just afraid to look back

But all that counts
Is what comes next

Break your plans tonight
Lay your hand in mine
There's no guarantee we'll make it, make this thing right
Break your plans for me tonight

And I know better
Than to stay just wondering for it
Will you stay and be with me?

Break your plans tonight
Lay your hand in mine
There's no guarantee we'll make it, no guarantee we'll make it
Just break your plans tonight
Lay your hand in mine
There's no guarantee we'll make it, no guarantee we'll make it
Just break your plans for me tonight

Wherever This Goes

I could slow down
Waste away in this town
Standing on the sidewalk
Watching this parade
Or we could get out
Pack our suitcase right now
Find ourselves a bus stop,
Make our own way!

Cause it feel like I've been here forever
Afraid to be my father, and afraid to leave him too!
But it's my name I painted on the doorway
Tells me where I came from and what I gotta do!

Whatever this goes (goes)
No matter how far (far)
Baby, you are the song that's written in our heart
Whatever we stand, wherever we fall
Don't matter at all, cause I will be forever yours
From this moment till the day curtains close
Don't matter at all, cause I will be forever yours
Wherever this goes!

So we're here now
Finally found our way out
On the road to some place,
Some place that we don't know!
But it's alright, keep on driving all night
Straight on to till morning, I know its a way to go

Cause it feel like we've been here forever
I don't how much further and where we're going to
But it's our name I painted on the doorway
It doesn't say where we came from, and what we gotta do

Oh, oh, oh whatever this goes (goes)
No matter how far (far)
Baby, you are the song that's written in our heart
Whatever we stand, wherever we fall
Don't matter at all, cause I will be forever yours
From this moment till the day curtains close
Don't matter at all, cause I will be forever yours
Wherever this goes!
No matter how far, baby you are the song it's written on my heart
Wherever we stand, wherever we fall
Don't matter at all, cause I will be forever yours
From this moment till the day curtains close
Don't matter at all, cause I will be forever yours
Wherever this goes

Shadow And A Dancer

Hello old friend
Do you remember when
We would float on the summer wind
And fall back to earth again

Hello love
Remember that touch
That skin on skin rush
Sweeping after both of us

Like a shadow and a dancer
We were looking for the answers
Keeping perfect time
Like a shadow and a dancer
We know the summer thrill is gone
But we've never been so in love
Like a shadow and a dancer

We have stayed
Like the Cascade Mountain range
And Pacific Ocean waves
Some things never change

And it's you and me
And our bodies are a memory
We're turning ever so slowly
In the candlelight trembling

Like a shadow and a dancer
We were looking for the answers
Keeping perfect time
Like a shadow and a dancer
We know the summer thrill is gone
But we've never been so in love
Like a shadow and a dancer
No, we've never been so in love
Like a shadow and a dancer

A shadow and a dancer
We are looking for the answer
Keeping perfect time
Like a shadow and a dancer
We know summer thrill is gone
But we've never been so in love

Oh, we've never
Shadow and a dancer
Looking for the answer

Same As You

Laying near you, swear you can feel me
Reach your hand and try to touch this skin
But it's just you breathing

Torn fabric, wrapped around you
Hands shaking, as you're reaching out
To cover that mirror now

No one can take this from you
No, can't carry this for you
But you can stand if you want to
Or fall if you want to
I do feel same as you
You can dance if you want to
Or break if you want to
I do feel same as you
The same as you

I wasn't dizzy but you planned the future
Thought the river could never meet you
How swiftly it come

Laying here, naked in the moonlight
The cool water never quite touches your soul
Makes want it all the more

No one can take this from you
No, can't carry this for you
But you can stand if you want to
Or fall if you want to
I do feel same as you
You can dance if you want to
Or break if you want to
I do feel same as you
The same as you

Stand 'round, staying, I'm staying
Thought I'm with you, I'm under
