Mercy


Angel of Mercy
How did you find me?
Where did you read my story?
Pulled from the papers
Desperate and hardened
seeking a momentary fix

All I wanted to say
All I wanted to do
Is fall apart now
All I wanted to feel
I wanted to love
Its all my fault now
A Tragedy I fear

Angel of Mercy
How did you find me?
How did you pick me up again?
Angel of Mercy
How did you move me?
Why am I on my feet again?
And I see you

Whoa Whoa Whoa
I feel you
Whoa Whoa Whoa

Before just the daylight
Come and I stand by
Waiting to catch the quickest plane
Fly me to nowhere
it's better than somewhere
That's where I've been and nothing's changed

All I wanted to say
All I wanted to do
Is fall apart now
All I wanted to feel
I wanted to love
Its all my fault now
A Tragedy for sure

Angel of Mercy
How did you find me?
How did you pick me up again?
Angel of Mercy
How did you move me?
Why am I on my feet again?
And I see you

Whoa
I feel you
Whoa

I'm so lost in you
A tragedy seemed to be over now
A tragedy it seemed to be

Angel of Mercy
How did you find me?
How did you pick me up again?
Angel of Mercy
How did you move me?
Why am I on my feet again?
And I see you

whoa
I feel you
Whoa
I feel you
Oh Whoa
I feel you
Oh Oh Oh

Apologize


[Verse 1]
I'm holdin' on your rope,
Got me ten feet off the ground.
And I'm hearin' what you say,
But I just can't make a sound.
You tell me that you need me,
Then you go and cut me down...
But wait...
You tell me that you're sorry,
Didn't think I'd turn around...
And say...

[Chorus]
That it's too late to apologize.
It's too late...
I said it's too late to apologize.
It's too late.
Yeah!

[Verse 2]
I'd take another chance,
Take a fall, take a shot for you.
I need you like a heart needs a beat,
But it's nothin' new.
I loved you with a fire red,
Now it's turnin' blue...
And you say...
Sorry, like an angel
Heaven let me think was you...
But I'm afraid...

[Chorus]
It's too late to apologize.
It's too late.
I said it's too late to apologize.
It's too late.
Whoa!

[Interlude]

[Chorus]
It's too late to apologize.
It's too late.
I said it's too late to apologize.
It's too late.

I said it's too to apologize. YEAH!
I said it's too late to apologize. YEAH!
I'm holdin' on your rope,
got me ten feet off the ground.

Stop And Stare

This town is colder now, I think it's sick of us
It's time to make our move, I'm shakin off the rust
I've got my heart set on anywhere but here
I'm staring down myself, counting up the years
Steady hands, just take the wheel...
And every glance is killing me
Time to make one last appeal... for the life I lead

Stop and stare
I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I've become what I can't be, oh
Stop and stare
You start to wonder why you're 'here' not there
And you'd give anything to get what's fair
But fair ain't what you really need
Oh, can u see what I see

They're tryin to come back, all my senses push
Un-tie the weight bags, I never thought I could...
Steady feet, don't fail me now
Gonna run till you can't walk
But something pulls my focus out
And I'm standing down...

Stop and stare
I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I've become what I can't be, oh
Stop and stare
You start to wonder why you're here not there
And you'd give anything to get what's fair
But fair ain't what you really need
Oh, you don't need

What u need, what u need...

Stop and stare
I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I've become what I can't be
Oh, do u see what I see...

Watching myself when I'm taking strides but here comes the moon and it feels and it feels like an informer quick run away hide before they see you, you know it is all, all a glow

Sleep


Talk to myself again, all alone, on my own
Walk by the scene again, just to see what people see
Caught in your stubborn hold, and I'm so far from home

So turn the lights on, turn the lights on
Turn the lights on for me
Keep the lights on, keep the lights on
Keep the lights on for me

Don't go to sleep

Lost in your thoughts again, consciously you think of me
Focus your perfect words with a pen you write me in
I can't be reached, so far from here, I need you near

So turn the lights on, turn the lights on
Turn the lights on for me
So keep the lights on, keep the lights on
Keep the lights on for me

Don't go to sleep

I wait for you, I stay for you

So turn the lights on, turn the lights on
Turn the lights on for me
So keep the lights on, keep the lights on
Keep the lights on for me

Don't go to sleep

I wait for you, I stay for you

Goodbye Apathy


I can't sleep now, no, not like I used to
I can't breathe in and out like I need to
It's breaking ice.. now, to make any movement
What's your vice? you know that mine's the illusion
And all at once (as i'm trying) I can help you out
(just to keep things right)
I'll be what you need (I kill myself to make everything perfect for ya)
Goodbye apathy, so long apathy

[Chorus]
So don't sit still, don't you move away from here
So goodbye apathy (as i'm trying), so long fancy free
(just to keep things right)
Goodbye apathy, (kill myself to make everything perfect for ya)
I don't wanna be you

I don't walk right, not like I used to
There's a jump in my step as I rush to see you
I could be happy here as long as you're near to me
As long as you're close to me
Now that I'm alright (as i'm trying) I can help you
out (just to keep things right)
I'll be what you need (I kill myself to make everything perfect for ya)
Goodbye apathy, goodbye apathy

[Chorus]
So don't you stop pushing me, I can take so much
So goodbye apathy (as i'm trying), so long fancy free
(just to keep things right)
Goodbye apathy, (kill myself to make everything perfect for ya)
I don't wanna be... you...

Everybody is watching you, everybody is watching me too ....

All We Are


I tried to paint you a picture, the colors were all wrong
Black and white didn't fit you and all along,
you were shaded with patience, your strokes of everything
That I need just to make it, and I can see that...
Lord knows I've failed you, time and again
But you and me are all right

We won't say our goodbyes you know it's better that way
We won't break, we won't die
It's just a moment of change
All we are, all we are, is everything that's right
All we need, all we need, a lover's alibi

I walked a minute in your shoes, they never would've fit
I figured there's nothing to lose
I need to get some perspective on these words before I write them down
You're an island and my ship has run aground
Lord knows I'll fail you time and again,
But you and me we're alright

We won't say our goodbyes you know its better that way
We won't break, we won't die
It's just a moment of change
All we are, all we are, is everything that's right
All we need all we need, a lover's alibi

Every single day that I can breathe, you change my philosophy
I'm never gonna let you pass me by
So don't say your goodbyes you know its better that way
We won't break, we won't die
It's just a moment of change [x2]

All we are, all we are, is everything that's right
All we need, all we need, a lover's alibi

So don't say our goodbyes you know its better
We won't break, we won't die

Someone To Save You

Patience
Took you for everything
Looked like a diamond ring
and you wore it so much longer than made sense
Apathy in disguise
Crept on you like a spy
Hurt you in ways
You can't describe

Bridge
Back to the start now
I wont let you go this way now

Chorus
Honesty
Is what you need
It sets you free
Like someone to save you
Let it go
But hurry now
Theres undertow
And I don't want to lose you now

All right
Sit down and spill your heart
Lets start from the very start
Cause i can see by your eyes
You're wasted
Your energy comes and goes
You taking your time, you know
Nothing can change what happened, you know

Bridge
Chorus

Now
Now
Oh my
Look at your bright stars fade so
How much can you take?

Chorus

Na Na Na Na Na Na Na (x14)
I said to save you
Save you
Save you
Someone to save you
What you need is
Someone to save you

Dreamin Out Loud

[Verse 1]
Well hello sir, we look for monday,
Confident we'll get there someday,
Pushing all the papers to a wealthy man,
Might I say, a beautiful tie you wear,
and how do you find such lovely polka dots and stripes these days?

[bridge]
Break all my thoughts hit the floor,
like im makin the score,
im the king of the world,
im a popular man
count by zero's to ten,
if you cant, well i can,
dont let any one wake me

[chorus]
Im dreamin out loud,
dreamin out loud,
and all at once its so familiar to see,
Im dreamin out loud,
dreamin out loud,
cant find a puzzle to fit into piece of apart of me

[verse 2]
Curtain calls a sanctuary,
Actors in the cloth, they freak me out,
Mockin my purpose, in the magazines,
Famous how they make you feel grand,
they're always there to hold your hand,
in times of trouble, they're best of friends

[bridge]
Break all my thoughts hit the floor,
like im makin the score,
im the king of the world,
im a popular man
count by zero's to ten,
if you cant, well i can,
dont let any one wake me

[chorus]
Im dreamin out loud,
dreamin out loud,
and all at once its so familiar to see,
Im dreamin out loud,
dreamin out loud,
cant find a puzzle to fit into piece of apart of me

[bridge]
they dont care what you say
they dont care what you think
all they care, what you do,
long as your of beat,
take a look at yourself

storm tries to come and wreck my world,
no i wont let it
stumble to escape, through anchored drapes, made of bedding

[chorus]
Im dreamin out loud,
dreamin out loud,
and all at once its so familiar to see,
Im dreamin out loud,
dreamin out loud,
cant find a puzzle to fit into piece of apart of me

well hello sir we look for mondaysss

Too Easy

autumn winds turns again, and the days are worn and start to fade
all the tears still the same
memories fall like rain
the only world i know
stedy as you go

its too easy , its too easy for you
its too easy , its too easy for you

sinking in the sands of time
miserable but ill be fine
i burn a fire out by the air
heavens on my side
hell is here tonight
no more endless cries

its too easy , its too easy for you
its too easy , its too easy for you

autumn wind turns again
and the days are worn and start to fade

Prodigal

We say good-bye, I turn my back
Run away, run away
So predictable
Not far from here, you see me crack
Like a bone, like a bone
I'm so breakable

And I take everything from you
But you'll take anything
Won't you?

Run away, run away, like a prodigal
Don't you wait for me, don't you wait for me
So ashamed, so ashamed
But I need you so
And you wait for me, and you wait for me

I'm on the road, to who knows where?
Look ahead, not behind
I keep saying, there's no place to go
Where you're not there
On your rope, I hold tight
But it's freeing

And I take everything from you
But you'll take anything
Won't you?

Run away, run away, like a prodigal
Don't you wait for me, don't you wait for me
So ashamed, so ashamed
But I need you so
And you wait for me, and you wait for me

Everybody wants to be right
But only if it's not day light?
I keep trying to find my way back
My way back

Run away, run away, like a prodigal
Don't you wait for me, don't you wait for me
So ashamed, so ashamed
But I need you so
And you wait for me, and you wait for me

Runaway, runaway, runaway
From you, from you, from you
