Love Someone

Love is a funny thing
Whenever I give it, it comes back to me
And it's wonderful to be
Giving with my whole heart
As my heart receives
Your love

Oh, ain't it nice tonight we've got each other
And I am right beside you
More than just a partner or a lover
I'm your friend

When you love someone
Your heartbeat beats so loud
When you love someone
Your feet can't feel the ground

Shining stars all seem
To congregate around your face
When you love someone
It comes back to you

And love is a funny thing
It's making my blood flow with energy
And it's like an awakened dream
As what I've been wishing for, is happening
And it's right on time

Oh ain't it nice this life, we've got each other
And I am right beside you
More than just a partner or a lover
I'm your friend

When you love someone
Your heartbeat beats so loud
When you love someone
Your feet can't feel the ground

Shining stars all seem
To congregate around your face
When you love someone
When you love someone

We're gonna give ourselves to love tonight
Lifting up to touch the starlight
And we will savor every second
We suspend together
You and I will
You and I will
You and I will

When you love someone
Your heartbeat beats so loud
When you love someone
Your feet can't feel the ground

Shining stars all seem
To congregate around your face
When you love someone
It comes back to you

Hello, You Beautiful Thing

Fall out of bed and catch a fading star
Fancy I woke up before my alarm
Brought my mind through my eyes
It's the best I can do
Before it's automatic, hand it over, turn it to you
Though her smile when it happened, almost as if it was magic
It means there's a god somewhere and he's laughing
And I shuffle my slipperless toes to the kitchen
Still low to the ground, but high on living

And I know, I know, it's gonna be a good day
Hello, hello, you beautiful thing

Waking up, I stretch my body and acknowledge some aches
It must be something I did yesterday
Pour a cup of liquid gold, because my enginge's still cold
But in a minute everything's gonna change

'Cause I know, I know, it's gonna be a good day
Hello, hello, you beautiful thing
Hello, hello, you beautiful thing

This is what I've been waiting for
This is what I've been waiting for
This is what I've been waiting for
This is what I've been waiting for

Looking out from a cul de sac watching the band
of the Earthtake the plaque of the night from the dirt
I can see from the depths of my readjustinize
of reflection of yes's and that ever changing sky
But why do bad dreams linger long after I awake?
I don't need no scenes of violence or pain replayed
And I feel quite foolish sometimes when I pray
But my thoughts are all I've got so I try to make them brave

And I know, I know, it's gonna be a good day
Hello, hello, you beautiful thing
Hello, hello, you beautiful thing

Oh now this is what I've been waiting for (this is what I've been waiting for)
Oh this is what I've been waiting for (this is what I've been waiting for)
Oh this is what I've been waiting for (this is what I've been waiting for)
Oh this is what I've been waiting for (Hello)

And I know, I know, it's gonna be a good day
Hello, hello, you beautiful thing...

Long Drive

Long drive, long night
The best night of my life,
With you riding, your hand on my hand.
The thought of arriving, kind of feels like, dying.
I don't want, to go home and be, alone.
Could we, stay out?
Could you, drive a little slower, don't matter where we're going,
As long as I'm with you, we could take the long way.
Chevy Nova, front seat, sofa, getting closer, to you.
Drive a little slower; don't matter where we're going,
As long as I'm with you, we could take the long way.
Drive a little slower, not ready to go home,
I'd rather stay with you.
We could take the long way, to the country out of town.
Let's get lost; I don't wanna be found.
Let's get away, now and be careful not to crash.
There's no defrost and we're steaming the glass.
You and the road have a generous shoulder
We can pull over and say we took the long way.
Headlights, not strobe lights,
I can see you, but not quite.
I can feel you inside; the timing is just right.
For the moment, I don't want to go home.
Take the long way.
Drive a little slower; don't matter where we're going.
Take the long way.
Drive a little slower; don't matter where we going now.
Take the long way
Drive a little slower; not ready to go home.
I'd rather stay with you.
We can take the long way.
Long drive, long night,
The best night of my life.

Everywhere

If thing's ain't a ghost, I couldn't walk into you
If I wasn't the snow, how could I fall for you?
If I wasn't a songbird, how could I call you?
If I wasn't a fly on the wall I wouldn't know all about you

I'm everything in everywhere
Can you see me in your own reflection?
I'm deep within the molecules of the air that you breathe
And all the subatomic supersonic spaces in between
I'm everywhere, I'm reaching out in every direction
I believe I'm in your water too cause you act just like you need me
Mm, I'm everywhere

If I wasn't the fire, how could you stoke me up inside?
If I wasn't a party, how could you be the life of me?
If I wasn't a camera, how could you be so photogenic, yeah I said it
If I wasn't the hands on the clock, would you know that the time was right?

Tonight, I'm everything in everywhere
Can you see me in your own reflection?
I'm deep within the molecules of the air that you breathe
And all the subatomic supersonic spaces in between
I'm everywhere, I'm reaching out in every direction
I believe I'm in your water too cause you act just like you need me

I got an eye on a spy on a satellite checking you out
I'm like a fly with a hundred eyes
I can see with all my senses and I'm coming to get you
I'm invisible, expendable, and I'm your present

I'm everywhere, can you see me in your own reflection?
I'm deep within the molecules of the air that you breathe
And all the subatomic supersonic spaces in between
I'm everywhere, I'm reaching out in every direction
I believe I'm in your water too cause you act just like you need me
I'm everywhere, I'm everywhere
I'm everywhere, I'm everywhere

Best Friend

Love is where this begins
Thank you for letting me in
You've always known where I stand
I've never had to pretend
And I feel my life is better
Because you're a part of it
I know without you by my side
That I would be different

Thank you for all of your trust
Thank you for not giving up
Thank you for holding my hand
You've always known where I stand
And I feel my life is better
So is the world we're living in
I'm thankful for the time I spent

With my best friend

Thank you for calling me out
Thank you for waking me up
Thank you for breaking it down
Thank you for choosing us
Thank you for all you're about
Thank you for lifting me up
Thank you for keeping me grounded
And being here now

My life is better,
Because you're a part of it
I know without you by my side
That I would be different
Yes I feel my life is better
And so is the world we're livin' in
I'm thankful for the time I spent
With my best friend

You're my best friend.

Quiet

I want to, I want to hold you

Every time I go home there's another cellphone tower
Construction getting louder, paving over yesterdays
You and I, we will try to find the side of it that's pretty
While our town becomes a city, we won't let it be erased
Empires rise, empires fall
Will you be my constant through it all?

I will hold your hand and watch the world spin idly around this life we're in
Oh yeah everything goes quiet when it's you I'm with
Oh yeah everything goes quiet when it's you I'm with
You, you, you..

Every once in a while, you know I get these real bad headaches
Worried about the mistakes that I've made along the way
You and I, we can't hide from the fact that we need each other
How else will I recover when the fever comes again

Temperatures rise, temperatures fall
Will you be my constant through it all?

I will hold your hand and watch the world spin idly around this life we're in
Oh yeah everything goes quiet when it's you I'm with
Oh yeah everything goes quiet when it's you I'm with
You, you, you..

There are no words, no words when I'm with you, you, you
Every time I hear music, they've added more stuff to it
Things are always moving into a futuristic place
Where you and I will try, we'll try to dance into tomorrow
But time will have to borrow, not a minute left to waste

Heartbeats rise, heartbeats fall
Will you be my constant through it all?

I will hold your hand and watch the world spin idly around this life we're in
Oh yeah everything goes quiet when it's you I'm with
Oh yeah everything goes quiet when it's you I'm with
Oh yeah everything goes quiet when it's you I'm with
Oh yeah everything goes quiet when it's you I'm with

Out Of My Hands

You went walking away, into the sun
How romantic, but I knew we were done

Was it something I said, something I did
It must be over my head, I didn't quite understand it
But now it's out of my hands, it's out of my hands

I'm sorry for the way you must feeling about yourself, every day
Baby you needed me to make it, so you could keep on running away

Was it something I said, something I did
It must be over my head, I didn't quite understand it
But now it's out of my hands, it's out of my hands

When it feels like life has gotten out of control
When it feels like there's much too much to hold
When it feels like too much to understand
No, that's out of your hands, out of your hands, out of your hands
No, that's out of your hands, out of your hands, out of your hands

Was it something I said, something I did
It must be over my head, I didn't quite understand it
Now it's out of my hands, it's out of my hands

When it feels like life has gotten out of control
When it feels like there's much too much to hold
When it feels like too much to understand
No, that's out of your hands, out of your hands, out of your hands
No, that's out of your hands, out of your hands, out of your hands

It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday

How do I say good bye to what we had,
The good times that made us laugh outweigh the bad
I thought we'd get to see forever but forever's gone away
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday

I don't know where this road is going to lead
All I know is where we've been and what we have been through
If we get to see tomorrow, I hope it's worth all the wait
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday

And I'll take with me the memories to be my sunshine after the rain
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday
And I'll take with me the memories to be my sunshine after the rain
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday

3 Things

There are three things I do when my life falls apart
Number one I cry my eyes out and dry up my heart
Not until I do this will my new life start
So that's the first thing that I do when my life falls apart.

Oh, the second thing I do is I close both of my eyes
And say my thank-yous to each and every moment of my life.
I go where I know the love is and let it fill me up inside
Gathering new strength from sorrow,
I'm glad to be alive.

Things are looking up
I know above the clouds the sun is shining
Things are looking up
Love is still the answer I'm relying
On
Three little things
Things are looking up

The third thing that I do now when my world caves in,
is I pause, I take a breath, and bow and I let that chapter end.
I design my future bright not by where my life has been.
And I try, try, try, try, try again.
Yes I try, try, try, try, try again.

Things are looking up
I know beyond the dark the sun is rising
Things are looking up
And I know above the clouds the sun is shining
Things are looking
Love is still the answer I'm relying
On
Three little things
Three little things

You Can Rely On Me

Sometimes I rock, sometimes I roll
Sometimes it's not me in control
Sometimes I gotta jump before I know what's below
Sometimes I gotta drop everything and go

Some days we're hot, some days we're cold
Some days we're carrying a heavy load
Some days we're digging in before it, and the love may not show
Oh, but I want you to know

That you can rely on me, yes you can
You can rely on me, to understand you
You can rely on me, for anything
You can rely, you can rely on me

And when your life is hinging on regret
Like you made up your mind and then you second-guessed it
There's so much you wanna try that you haven't tried yet
Ooh, I've got your back through all of it, yes I do

Yeah, you can rely on me, yes you can
You can rely on me, to understand you
You can rely on me, for anything
You can rely, you can rely on me

It's you who brought me back when I was lost
Everything I learned you taught me
How to wise up and pay a little more attention
You showed me how to listen, so listen

You can rely on me, yes you can

Yeah, you can rely on me, yes you can
You can rely on me, to understand you
You can rely on me, for anything
You can rely, you can rely on me

Back To The Earth

Whenever my head starts to hurt
Before it goes from bad to feeling worse
I turn off my phone
I get down low
And put my hands in the dirt

I try to stop the world from moving so fast
Try to get a grip on where I'm at
AND simplify
This dizzy life
And put my feet in the grass

I'm going back to the earth
I'm going back to the earth
I'm going back to work
I'm going back to the earth

The only explanation for a high rise
Must be that everybody wants to get high
And move on up
To a deluxe
Apartment in the sky

Well, the higher we go, the taller we grow
We lose sight of the land below
Well, you can have your place
Up in outer space
'Cause my home is where my food is grown

[2x]
I'm going back to the earth
I'm going back to the earth
I'm going back to work
I'm going back to the earth

(All right lets get the rest in over this bridge)

We are animals (we are animals)
We are wild (we are wild)
We started with the motion
At the bottom of the ocean
Now we're swinging from the tops of the trees

We are animals (we are animals)
We are wild (we are wild)
And to truly be forgiven
We must all get back to living
With the land in harmony

[4x]
I'm going back to the earth
I'm going back to the earth
I'm going back to work
I'm going back to the earth
(Two more times around!)

A World With You

Let's hit the road and throw out the map
Wherever we go, we won't look back
Cause we're going places and we're going there fast
And let's move to Paris and get ourselves a loft
Let's live in squalor, and spend all cost
Let's throw caution to the wind and start over again

Think how many doors we'll open
Just as many stars are shining
Who knows where we're going
Yeah who knows what we'll find
I want to see the world
The way I see a world with you

Let's hike in the mountains and challenge our will
Let's leap over canyons and get lost in the hills
I want to see the world the way I see a world with you

Think how many doors we'll open
Just as many stars are sure to shine
Who knows where we're going
And who knows what we'll find
I want to see the world
The way I see a world with you

All of our plans will be at sea
The sum of all our failures,
They cannot hurt us now
Let's hoist up ourselves
And shove off to China and climb up a wall
We'll keep on climbing, looking over it all
Laughing it up, yeah having a ball

Think how many doors we'll open
Just as many stars are going to shine
Who knows where we're going
And who knows what we'll find
I want to see the world
The way I see a world with you
I want to see the world
The way I see a world with you

Shine

Once upon a time there was a meeting of minds
The sun and the moon made a deal with the sky
One would take the morning and the other the night
Together they would blanket the world with light
But the moon had a shadow, he felt like a liar
The sun was the only one who carried the fire
The sun saw this, she kept on glowing
Bound to the moon, never saying, "you owe me"

She said I'll shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you

I keep a lamp over you, glowing in my heart
To keep from tripping over troublesome thoughts in the dark
We ain't that different, we huddle underneath the same stars
I see who you really are
You're every creature, every man, every woman and child
You're the closest thing I'll ever get to knowing God
Like the sun to the moon, I'll send my love and light
A love like ours, it'll fill the whole sky

I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine, shine, shine on you

Think of the people that you love the most
Send them your light and hope it glows
Say I will shine on you, I will shine on you
No matter the distance, the space, or the time
Love travels in the speed of light
I will shine on you, I will shine on you
I will shine on you, I will shine on you

And if you forget we are the chosen ones
Turn your eyes to the attention of the morning sun
Wherever you go, however you move
The light is gonna shine directly to you
Let it shine on you (shine on you)
Let it shine on you (shine on you)
Let it shine on you (shine on you)
Yes I'm gonna shine on you
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine on you (shine on you)
I will shine, shine, shine on you
