No Sound Without Silence Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

No Good In Goodbye

All the things that we've lost
Breaking off comes at a cost
And know I miss this mistake
Every word I try to choose
Either way I'm gonna lose
Can't take the ache from heartbreak

Oh, but as you walk away
You don't hear me say

Where's the "good" in "goodbye"?
Where's the "nice" in "nice try"?
Where's the "us" in "trust gone"?
Where's the "soul" in "soldier on"?
Now I'm the "lone" in "lonely"
'Cause I don't own you only
I can take this mistake
But I can't take the ache from heartbreak
Can't take the ache from heartbreak

No matter how it falls apart
There's an "art" in breaking hearts
But there's no fair in farewell, no
When I see you in the street
I pray to God you don't see
The silent "hell" in "I wish you well."

Oh, but as you walk away
You don't hear me say

Where's the "good" in "goodbye"?
Where's the "nice" in "nice try"?
Where's the "us" in "trust gone"?
Where's the "soul" in "soldier on"?
Now I'm the "lone" in "lonely"
'Cause I don't own you only
I can take this mistake
But I can't take the ache from heartbreak
I can't take the ache from heartbreak
I can't take the ache from heartbreak
I can't take the ache from heartbreak

If I could turn back time then I would re-write those lines
If I could turn back time then I would re-write those lines
If I could turn back time then I would re-write those lines
If I could turn back time then I would re-write those lines

Where's the "good" in "goodbye"?
Where's the "nice" in "nice try"?
Where's the "us" in "trust gone"?
Where's the "soul" in "soldier on"?
Now I'm the "lone" in "lonely"
'Cause I don't own you only
I can take this mistake
But I can't take the ache from heartbreak
I can't take the ache from heartbreak

If I could turn back time, then I would re-write those lines

Superheroes

All her life she has seen
All the meaner side of me
They took away the prophet's dream for a profit on the street

Now she's stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow

All his life he's been told
He'll be nothing when he's old
All the kicks and all the blows
He won't ever let it show

'Cause he's stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been struggling to make things right
That's how a superhero learns to fly
Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been working every day and night
That's how a superhero learns to fly
Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

All the hurt, all the lies
All the tears that they cry
When the moment is just right
You see fire in their eyes

'Cause he's stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been struggling to make things right
That's how a superhero learns to fly
Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been working every day and night
That's how a superhero learns to fly
Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

She's got lions in her heart
A fire in her soul
He's a got a beast in his belly
That's so hard to control
'Cause they've taken too much hits
Taking blow by blow
Now light a match, stand back, watch them explode

She's got lions in her heart
A fire in her soul
He's a got a beast in his belly
That's so hard to control
'Cause they've taken too much hits
Taking blow by blow
Now light a match, stand back, watch them explode

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been struggling to make things right
That's a how a superhero learns to fly
Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been working every day and night
That's a how a superhero learns to fly
Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

Oh, yeah...

Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

Ooh, yeah
Whoa

Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been struggling to make things right
That's how a superhero learns to fly

Man On A Wire

Who would have thought that I'd be here by myself?
Who would have thought that you'd be bad for my health?
Now I know, now I know
I'm just a man on a wire
Who would have thought I'd be the 'cause and effect?
Yesterday's love is not tomorrow's regrets
Now I know, now I know
I'm just a man on a wire

No, I can't look down
I'm trying to fight the feeling
I will fall to the ground
If I ever see you
'Cause I feel like I'm walkin' on a tightrope

My heart is in my throat
I'm counting on high hope to get me over you
And I've got my eyes closed
As long as the wind blows
I'm counting on high hope to get me over you, you
'Cause I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
I'm a man on a wire, on a wire

Who would have thought I'd see you with someone else?
Who would have thought that I'd be in such a mess?
Now you know, now you know
I'm just a man on a wire

But I walk that line
I try to keep my senses
Make it to the other side
I know the consequences and
I feel like I'm walkin' on a tight road

My heart is in my throat
I'm counting on high hope to get me over you
And I've got my eyes closed
As long as the wind blows
I'm counting on high hope to get me over you, you
'Cause I'm a man on a wire,on a wire
I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
'Cause I'm a man on a wire,on a wire
'Cause I'm a man on a wire, on a wire

The higher I get
The more I miss the ground
No safety nets
Now you're not around
I have to keep walking
To keep me from falling down

Feels like I'm walkin' on a tightrope
My heart is in my throat
I'm counting on high hope to get me over you,you
And I've got my eyes closed
As long as the wind blows
I'm counting on high hope to get me over you,you
'Cause I'm a man on a wire,on a wire
I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
'Cause I'm a man on a wire,on a wire
'Cause I'm a man on a wire, on a wire

It's Not Right For You

My head, my head is full of things that I should've done
My heart, my heart is heavy, and it sinks like a stone

She said, "Is this the life you've been dreaming of
Spending half the day away from the things you love?
It's not too late to do something new."

She said, "It's hard enough trying to live your life.
But not following your dreams made you dead inside.
If you don't love what you do."

It's not right, it's not right for you
If you even have to think about it
It's not right, it's not right for you
If you really have to think about it
You got one life to love what you do

My hands, my hands are scarred by things I shouldn't have done
My feet, my feet are weary from all the miles that I've run

She said, "Open your mind, take a look within.
Are you happy with the world that you're living in?
If not, you gotta change what you do."

She said, "And lately I don't see you smiling lot.
Are you happy here with me and the things we've got?
If you can't say that it's true."

It's not right, it's not right for you
If you even have to think about it
It's not right, it's not right for you
If you really have to think about it
You got one life to love what you do

If we don't do something now then we'll never know
If we stay here too long then we'll, we'll never grow old
So, before it's too late and it's killing you, yeah
We've only one life to live. So love what you do

It's not right, it's not right for you
If you even have to think about it
It's not right, it's not right for you
If you really have to think about it
You got one life to love what you do

In the end, in the end
Better hold 'cause you're take it all in
In the end, in the end
You got one life to love what you do
In the end, in the end
Better hold 'cause you're take it all in
In the end, in the end
You got one life to love what you do

The Energy Never Dies

I cross my heart and I hope to die
May God strike me down if I tell you lies
I'd stay here forever looking in your eyes
24/7, baby, 3-6-5

I'll take your hand and I'll hold real tight
I'll tell ye life's just a blink so don't think twice
Let's catch the moment in a flash of light
24/7, baby, 3-6-5

If we gonna feel alive, then let's feel it now

We could all be blown to pieces
Because time's a ticking bomb
We could all be dead tomorrow
But our love will carry on
'Cause when you know, your days are numbered
And you're looking in my eyes
It's not the end, 'cause the energy never dies

Oh, oh oh, oh, oh

I fell for you and i never got up
I stay here forever 'til I turn to dust
Just take every minute make it last for life
24/7, baby, 3-6-5-5-5

We could all be blown to pieces
Because time's a ticking bomb
We could all be dead tomorrow
But our love will carry on
'Cause when you know, your days are numbered
And you're looking in my eyes
It's not the end, 'cause the energy never dies

Oh, oh oh, oh, oh
'Cause the energy never dies
Oh, oh oh, oh, oh
'Cause the energy never dies
Oh, oh oh, oh, oh

There's no where, there's no when
There's no start, there's no end
'Cause this love, it transcends
I found you before and I'll find you again

There's no where, there's no when
There's no start, there's no end
So if we're gonna feel alive
Then let's feel it now

We could all be blown to pieces
Because time's a ticking bomb
We could all be dead tomorrow
But our love will carry on
'Cause when you know, your days are numbered
And you're looking in my eyes
It's not the end, 'cause the energy never dies

Ooh, ooh ooh, ooh, ooh
'Cause the energy never dies
Oh, oh oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh oh, oh, oh

I'll take your hand and I'll hold real tight
I'll tell ye life's just a blink so don't think twice

Flares

Did you lose what won't return?
Did you love but never learn?
The fire's out but still it burns
And no one cares, there's no one there

Did you find it hard to breathe?
Did you cry so much that you could barely see?
You're in the darkness all alone
And no one cares, there's no one there

But did you see the flares in the sky?
Were you blinded by the light?
Did you feel the smoke in your eyes?
Did you? Did you?
Did you see the sparks filled with hope? You are not alone
Cause someone's out there, sending out flares

Did you break but never mend?
Did it hurt so much you thought it was the end?
Lose your heart but don't know when
And no one cares, there's no one there

But did you see the flares in the sky?
Were you blinded by the light?
Did you feel the smoke in your eyes?
Did you? Did you?
Did you see the sparks filled with hope? You are not alone
Cause someone's out there, sending out flares
Someone's out there, sending out flares

Did you lose what won't return?
Did you love but never learn?

But did you see the flares in the sky?
Were you blinded by the light?
Did you feel the smoke in your eyes?
Did you? Did you?
Did you see the sparks filled with hope? You are not alone
Cause someone's out there, sending out flares

Army Of Angels

When love's a battle
And life's a war
When I just can't go on fighting anymore
When I'm surrounded
And they're closing in
When I feel the bullets graze against my skin

This world's a war zone
But I've got a shield
And I won't surrender
'Cause your love feels
Like an army of angels
Like an army of angels
Like an army of angels
Like an army of angels

Hey hey
If hate is poison then loves the cure
And it's you that drives the demons from my door
When they got me cornered
Close to giving in
Oh, I feel you round me like a second skin

This world's a war zone
But I've got a shield
And I won't surrender
'Cause your love feels
Like an army of angels
Like an army of angels
Like an army of angels
Like an army of angels

Through the flames and the fire I will go
'Cause I know, yeah, I know that I'm not alone
Through the flames and the fire I will go
'Cause I know, yeah, I know that I'm not alone

Oh, what a beautiful sight whoa
A hundred thousand soldiers in the sky whoa
I don't need to worry tonight
With you by my side, yeah

Like an army of angels
Like an army of angels
Like an army of angels
Like an army of angels, angels, angels

Like an army of angels
Like an army of angels
Like an army of angels
Like an army of angels

Through the flames and the fire I will go
'Cause I know, yeah, I know that I'm not alone
Through the flames and the fire I will go
'Cause I know, yeah, I know that I'm not alone

Never Seen Anything "Quite Like You"

I think I want you more than want
And no I need you more than need
I want to hold you more than hold
When you stood in front of me
I think you know me more than know
And you see me more than see
I could die now more than die
Every time you look at me

Well I've seen you in jeans with no make-up on
And I've stood there in awe as your date for the prom
I'm blessed as a man to have seen you in white
But I've never seen anything quite like you tonight
No, I've never seen anything quite like you

When it's right it's more than right
Those you feel it more than feel
I could take this moment now
Ride into the great with me

I've seen you in jeans with no make-up on
And I've stood there in awe as your date for the prom
I'm blessed as a man to have seen you in white
But I've never seen anything quite like you tonight
No, I've never seen anything quite like you tonight
No, I've never seen anything quite like you tonight

And your eyes are in your eyes
And my heart's in our hearts
Sometimes words just ain't enough
For this love that's more than love

Well I've seen you in jeans with no make-up on
And I've stood there in awe as your date for the prom
I'm blessed as a man to have seen you in white
But I've never seen anything quite like you tonight
No, I've never seen anything quite like you tonight
No, I've never seen anything quite like you tonight

Paint The Town Green

I know you're missing home
It's been so long since you've been
And that life you had in Dublin
Now ain't nothing but a dream
To be right there in the moment
You'd give anything to be

It's alright
'Cause tonight
We're gonna paint the town green

Your friends are on the phone there
It's so close to Paddy's Day
And it kills you not to be there
But life got in the way
If I had to break the bank
Spend every penny on your dreams

It's alright
'Cause tonight
We're gonna paint the town green

Just like home
Let's color the streets like our own
Let's make this place feel like our own
It's just you and me

It's alright
'Cause tonight
We're gonna paint the town green

And we travel on the subway
Like it was the Luas line
Chase the Hudson to the Liffey
Where we kissed for the first time
Turn the city into Dublin
Yeah, wherever we may be

It's alright
'Cause tonight
We're gonna paint the town green

Just like home
Let's color the streets like our own
Let's make this place feel like our own
It's just you and me,

It's alright
'Cause tonight
We're gonna paint the town green

Just like home
Let's color the streets like our own
Let's make this place feel like our own
It's just you and me,

It's alright
'Cause tonight
We're gonna paint the town green

Paint the town green
Paint the town green

Without Those Songs

Would Dylan be just a poet?
Would Bono ever know it without those songs?
Would Marley be just a stoner?
Johnny Cash just be a loner without those songs?
Would Buddy Holly have disappeared?
Or would Lennon still be here without those songs?

What happened in their lives?
What happened in their hearts?
To make them want to write the words
Gonna tear this world apart
The beauty of their lives
Is when they're dead and gone
The world still sings along
When anything went right
When anything went wrong
They put it in a song

Would Elvis be just a look
Or the Rolling Stones be stuck without those songs?
Would Sinatra be just a gangster
Or would Jackson be just a dancer without those songs?
Would Madonna be just a face?
Or Nirvana be just a place without those songs?

What happened in their lives?
What happened in their hearts?
To make them want to write the words
Gonna tear this world apart
The beauty of their lives
Is when they're dead and gone
The world still sings along
When anything went right
When anything went wrong
They put it in a song

Hail Rain Or Sunshine

We're late to bed
We're early to rise
Wipe the sleep from our eyes

We head to work
We catch a lift
We have a smoke and we start this shift?

We open up,
We start to wake
Maybe it's gonna be our day
And suddenly
We start to smile
The sun is out for a while

And you may see this place and find no worth
But it's a little piece of heaven here on Earth

Yeah, we always have a good time
Whether it's hail rain or it's sunshine
Yeah, we're all living the good life
Whether it's hail rain or it's sunshine

We reach the top
We took the fall
But we laughed through it all
Cause dreaming of them better days
Has always been our way

And you may see my friends and find no worth
But, no, I'll never go and change them for the world

Yeah, we always have a good time
Whether it's hail rain or it's sunshine
Yeah, we're all living the good life
Whether it's hail rain or it's sunshine

Yeah, we always have a good time
Whether it's hail rain or in sunshine
Yeah, we're all living the good life
Whether it's hail rain or in sunshine

Howl At The Moon

(iTunes Bonus Track)

When I was younger
I'd pray for thunder
A thousand angels banging on their chairs
The white of all the lightning was never that frightening
Like cameras all flashing in the air

And oh, after it would clear
The wonders of the universe they seem so near

Lying in my backyard
Head is facing skyward
I'd imagine all the things that I could be
A pilot or a fighter
An astronaut or writer
Anything except just being me

And oh, the bells would start to ring
Words came to my head and I would start to sing

With the moon as the spotlight
That shines on me
And the stars were the lighters in the air
And the wind screaming loud sounded just like a crowd
And I swore I was already there
I'd howl at the moon
I'd howl at the moon

Now that I'm older
And life's a little colder
You're told you need to let go of your dreams
Everything changes
They stare at blank pages
I had the dream but couldn't find the key

But oh, some nights I hear the strings
These melodies in my head I have to sing

With the moon as the spotlight
That shines on me
And the stars were the lighters in the air
And the wind screaming loud sounded just like a crowd
And I swore I was already there

I'd howl at the moon
I'd howl at the moon
I'd howl at the moon
I'd howl at the moon

It keeps getting louder
It keeps getting louder
It keeps getting louder
It keeps getting louder
It keeps getting louder
It keeps getting louder

With the moon as the spotlight
That shines on me
And the stars were the lighters in the air
And the wind screaming loud sounded just like a crowd
And I swore I was already there

I'd howl at the moon
I'd howl at the moon
I'd howl at the moon
I'd howl at the moon
I'd howl at the moon
