MOUNTAIN, Pt. 1

I've been burying a mountain
I've been running uphill
I've been pushing up a big wave
That I'm carrying still
I can see over the mountain
And I know that it's real
There's a river made of roses
Just up over this hill

HARD LOVE

Trading punches with the heart of darkness
Going to blows with your fear incarnate
Never gone until it's stripped away
A part of you has gotta die today

In the morning you gon' need an answer
Ain't nobody gonna change the standard
It's not enough to just feel the flame
You've gotta burn your old self away

Hold on tight a little longer
What don't kill ya, makes ya stronger
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You can't change without a fallout
It's gon' hurt, but don't you slow down
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love

You know the situation can't be right
And all you ever do is fight
But there's a reason that the road is long
It take some time to make your courage strong

Hold on tight a little longer
What don't kill ya, makes ya stronger
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You can't change without a fallout
It's gon' hurt, but don't you slow down
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love

When the wolves come and hunt me down
I will face them all and stand my ground
'Cause there's a fire burnin' in me
They will see my strength in this love I found
Oh

Hold on tight a little longer
What don't kill ya, makes ya stronger
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You can't change without a fallout
It's gon' hurt, but don't you slow down
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love

It's a hard love...

Hold on tight a little longer
What don't kill ya, makes ya stronger
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You can't change without a fallout
It's gon' hurt, but don't you slow down
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
'Cause it's a hard love

MONEY & FAME

I was sleeping with a loaded gun
I was scared of all things I'd done
Yeah, I know I'm not the only one
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright now
I was chasing down a high again
Tryna take whatever I could get
But you know I had to pay for it
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright now

I know that you know
That everybody goes when the lights go

What do you kids wanna know about now?
I made enough to make a young gun proud
Money and fame bring a man to shame
Ain't no doubt about it
What do you kids wanna know about now?
I found the bottom from the top somehow
Money and fame bring a man to shame
Ain't no doubt about it

Yeah, I've done some things that I regret
I was thinking I was fortunate
Now I'm working just to pay the debt
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright now
You never know until you're offered it
But everybody's got a price, I guess
It's even lower than you think it is
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright now

I know that you know
That everybody goes when the lights go

What do you kids wanna know about now?
I made enough to make a young gun proud
Money and fame bring a man to shame
Ain't no doubt about it
What do you kids wanna know about now?
I found the bottom from the top somehow
Money and fame bring a man to shame
Ain't no doubt about it

What do you kids wanna know about now?
I seen the devil and the bright lights now
Money and fame bring a man to shame
Ain't no doubt about it
What do you kids wanna know about now?
I found the bottom from the top somehow
Money and fame bring a man to shame
Ain't no doubt about it

NO EXCUSES

I've got this feeling in my bones
That you find a solace in shadows
I don't wanna find out you're going 'round my back
Why you wanna bring me these sorrows

Cause there's no excuses for what you're doing
There's no excuses for what you're doing

Girl, I've been your lover since high school
Everything I did, I did for you
If you're gonna tighten this rope around my neck
Girl, you better know I'm gonna fight it

Cause there's no excuses for what you're doing
There's no excuses for what you're doing

Cause there's no excuses for what you're doing
There's no excuses for what you're doing

WHEN I SING

Your melody is like a love letter
And I'm loving everything you do
Your skin feels just like a rose petal
The remedy that gets me through
Is when I sing

You're the song that I'm singing
In my moment of weakness
When I sing, baby, it's just my way
To tell you I need you

Sometimes it feels like you're a storm comin'
And I ain't had no rain for weeks
I'm tired of being so far away from you
You know I need you here not in my dreams
So when I sing

You're the song that I'm singing
In my moment of weakness
When I sing, baby, it's just my way
To tell you

I'll lead the choir of lost and found
I'm reaching up right through the clouds
With everything that makes a sound
I'm gonna sing it out

When I sing

You're the song that I'm singing
In my moment of weakness
When I sing, baby, it's just my way
To tell you I need you

Sing (I sing for you, I sing for you)
When I sing (I sing for you, I sing for you)
Baby it's just my way to tell you I need you
To tell you I need you

HAPPINESS

Singing oh, happiness
Singing oh, happiness

I got a homesick heart but a long ways left to go
I've been doing my part but I ain't got much to show
So I'm asking you to show me some forgiveness
It's all for you in my pursuit of happiness
Chasing that life, moving on cause I had to prove
There ain't no life worth doing what I did to you
So I'm asking you to show me some forgiveness
It's all for you in my pursuit of happiness

I got dreams that keep me up in the dead of night
Telling me I wasn't made for the simple life
There's a light I see, but it's far in the distance
So I'm asking you to show me some forgiveness
It's all for you in my pursuit of happiness

Singing oh, happiness
Singing oh, happiness

I've been working all night, maybe you could help me to believe
This song ain't nothing if this song can't set you free
So I'm asking you to show me some forgiveness
It's all for you in my pursuit of happiness

I got dreams that keep me up in the dead of night
Telling me I wasn't made for the simple life
There's a light I see, but it's far in the distance
So I'm asking you to show me some forgiveness
It's all for you in my pursuit of happiness

Singing oh, happiness
Singing oh, happiness

Sometimes you leave the ones you love
But if it's love, they won't give up
Cause they know a war's raging and you gotta choose
These days are tough, these days are long
Sometimes it's hard, you carry on
But I hear a voice singing and I know it's true

I got dreams that keep me up in the dead of night
Telling me I wasn't made for the simple life
There's a light I see, but it's far in the distance
So I'm asking you to show me some forgiveness
It's all for you in my pursuit of happiness

Singing oh, happiness
Singing oh, happiness
Oh, happiness
Singing oh, happiness

GREAT NIGHT

[NEEDTOBREATHE:]
My heart is leading and I'm under attack
Don't need a cure cause I don't wanna go back
I'm givin' in, ain't no fighting this fire

I got this fever, fever burning inside
I got this fever, fever getting me high

[NEEDTOBREATHE & Shovels & Rope:]
Let's have a great night on the dance floor
I'll be the cowboy on the white horse
And if we don't drown when we're swimming ashore
I'll be the first in line to get us some more

[NEEDTOBREATHE:]
I got some money burning holes in my pants
And I've been wearing down the bones in my hands
I'm getting off here, yeah, I got me some plans

I got this fever, fever burning inside
I got this fever, fever getting me high

[NEEDTOBREATHE & Shovels & Rope:]
Let's have a great night on the dance floor
I'll be the cowboy on the white horse
And if we don't drown when we're swimming ashore
I'll be the first in line to get us some more

[NEEDTOBREATHE:]
Oh, all the rules need breaking
And I need time for wasting
Before I lose my mind
Oh, tonight, we'll all be outlaws
Take what we want and then ride off
Tonight, we'll feel alive

I got this fever, fever burning inside
I got this fever, fever getting me high
I got this fever, fever burning inside
I got this fever, fever getting me high

[NEEDTOBREATHE & Shovels & Rope:]
Let's have a great night on the dance floor
I'll be the cowboy on the white horse
And if we don't drown when we're swimming ashore
I'll be the first in line to get us some more
Let's have a great night on the dance floor
I'll be the cowboy on the white horse
And if we don't drown when we're swimming ashore
I'll be the first in line to get us some more

BE HERE LONG

Close my eyes and think of you
Go to sleep and dream of you
We don't get to be here long
I gave you the best of me
Loved you more than anything
But we don't get to be here long
We don't get to be here long

Though my heart may be in pieces
My eyes are still set on you
And though I can't keep it together
I know that you'd want me to

Oh, I'm swimming in the grief
And there's no anchor that could hold me down
I don't want any relief
Cause I don't wanna let you go right now

Close my eyes and think of you
Go to sleep and dream of you
We don't get to be here long
I gave you the best of me
Loved you more than anything
But we don't get to be here long

Oh your moments were a charity
They gave me more than I could lose
Oh I know you found the promise land
But I'm still here and I'm missing you

Close my eyes and think of you
Go to sleep and dream of you
We don't get to be here long
I gave you the best of me
Loved you more than anything
But we don't get to be here long

When the day comes
And the fire is out
I wanna know that
I gave you all, I gave you all I had
When the day comes
And the fire is out
I wanna know that
I gave you my everything

Close my eyes and think of you
Go to sleep and dream of you
We don't get to be here long
I gave you the best of me
Loved you more than anything
But we don't get to be here long
Oh, we don't get to be here long

We don't get to be here long

DON'T BRING THAT TROUBLE

Been down the broken road now
Been through that fire
There's angels holding onto both sides of the wire
I'm lacking what I need to carry you through it
Stay back or get on track cause I can't have you ruin it

I said
Hold on but don't hold me back
Hold on but don't hold me back
Hold on but don't hold me back
Just hold on

I had it rough, I had to move for awhile
Lock down the house and chain it up with denial
I'm coming home and everyone is invited singin'
Don't bring that trouble with you
Don't bring that trouble with you

I found the way around you
Gonna take me higher
Last time the way I loved you
Just wound up tired
I'm lacking what I need to carry you through it
Stay back or get on track cause I can't have you ruin it

I said
Hold on but don't hold me back
Hold on but don't hold me back
Hold on but don't hold me back
Just hold on

I had it rough, I had to move for awhile
Lock down the house and chain it up with denial
I'm coming home and everyone is invited singin'
Don't bring that trouble with you
Don't bring that trouble with you
Don't bring that trouble with you
Don't bring that trouble with you

I had it rough, I had to move for awhile
Lock down the house and chain it up with denial
I'm coming home and everyone is invited singin'
Don't bring that trouble with you
Don't bring that trouble with you

LET'S STAY HOME TONIGHT

Baby, let's stay home tonight
We can put a couple records on
We can build a fire alright
Maybe we can dance till dawn
Everything will be just fine
Don't even have to put clothes on
I can keep you warm inside
Baby, let's stay home tonight

Lately we've been walking in a straight line
Doing our own thing never seem to find time
We've been going downtown
Making reservations
But maybe we just slow down
See where it can take us

Baby, let's stay home tonight
We can put a couple records on
We can build a fire alright
Maybe we can dance till dawn
Everything will be just fine
Don't even have to put clothes on
I can keep you warm inside
Baby, let's stay home tonight

I know you wanna get dressed up
But I know who you are girl
There ain't no need for makeup
Cause you're my angel
And I don't wanna share you
So why don't we just slow down
See where it can take us

Baby, let's stay home tonight
We can put a couple records on
We can build a fire alright
Maybe we can dance till dawn
Everything will be just fine
Don't even have to put clothes on
I can keep you warm inside
Baby, let's stay home tonight
[x2]

Yeah baby, let's stay home tonight

TESTIFY

Give me your heart
Give me your song
Sing it with all your might
Come to the fountain and
You can be satisfied
There is a peace, there is a love
You can get lost inside
Come to the fountain and
Let me hear you testify

Into the wild
Canyons of youth
Oh, there's a world to fall into
Weightless we'll dance
Like kids on the moon
Oh, I will give myself to you
As soon as you start to let go

Give me your heart
Give me your song
Sing it with all your might
Come to the fountain and
You can be satisfied
There is a peace, there is a love
You can get lost inside
Come to the fountain and
Let me hear you testify

Wave after wave
As deep calls to deep
Oh, I'll reveal my mystery
As soon as you start to let go

Give me your heart
Give me your song
Sing it with all your might
Come to the fountain and
You can be satisfied
There is a peace, there is a love
You can get lost inside
Come to the fountain and
Let me hear you testify
There is a peace, there is a love
You can get lost inside
Come to the fountain and
Let me hear you testify

Mist on the mountain
Rising from the ground
There's no denying beauty makes a sound
We can't escape it
There's no way to doubt
Mist on the mountain
Rising all around

Give me your heart
Give me your song
Sing it with all your might
Come to the fountain and
You can be satisfied
There is a peace, there is a love
You can get lost inside
Come to the fountain and
Let me hear you testify
There is a peace, there is a love
You can get lost inside
Come to the fountain and
Let me hear you testify

You can get lost inside
Let me hear you testify

CLEAR

You are the moonlight in the sky that I'm pursuing
You are the reason for what I'm doing
You are the crystalline that keeps me from my ruin
You are the movement
You're the true north pointing back home
You are the constant, my constellation
You're the steady hands of a ticking clock that I'll come to rely on

Oh, it's so clear
Come a little closer
All of my love is right here
I just want to hear you whispering you still trust
You're the only thing that I have ever been sure of
I just wanna be where you are
I promise I won't let you down
Honey, it's so clear now

You are the four winds
You're the catalyst of high hopes
You are the beauty
The sparks revival
You are the oxygen inside these lungs that's giving life to my bones

Oh, it's so clear
Come a little closer
All of my love is right here
I just want to hear you whispering you still trust
You're the only thing that I have ever been sure of
I just wanna be where you are
I promise I won't let you down
Honey, it's so clear now

Oh, it's so clear
Come a little closer
All of my love is right here
I just want to hear you whispering you still trust
You're the only thing that I have ever been sure of
I just wanna be where you are
I promise I won't let you down
Honey, it's so clear now

Honey, it's so clear now
It's so clear now
I promise I won't let you down
Honey, it's so clear now
Honey, it's so clear now
Honey, it's so clear now

It feels like heaven is coming down
It's right here with me its all around
I once was so lost but I am found
When I'm with you
No ones watching the way you move
Your body's dancing under the moon
You always know just what to do

When I'm with you
When I'm with you
When I'm with you
When I'm with you
