Can't Erase It (Tweed Horse Sessions) Lyrics

Follow the crowd and love everybody now
'Cause love is the best thing for you now
But you changed your mind you let everybody down
But down is the best place for you
It's easier that way you know it's

So wrong can't embrace it
wish sometimes for any other you
But you can't erase it and you won't escape it

Don't waste your time
Your words only confine you
To all of the things you've buried now
Don't ask them why
Their wisdom will leave you blind
But blind is the best thing for you
It's easier I know, you know it's

So wrong, can't embrace it
Wish sometimes for any other you
But you can't erase it, and you won't escape it

How long will you face it
Till the wait comes crashing down on you
'Cause you can't erase it, and you won't escape it

Coffee Song (Seatbelt Tuba edition) Lyrics

Call it obsession, call it fanatical
I am not trying to make this a spectical
But I have this craving that justifies behaving
I really need some of that...

Chorus:


Oooh, good coffee, strong coffee
I need to have some
Oooh, good coffee, strong coffee


Oh Cappuccino, Double Espresso
I need something with a really big kick
You ask me 'bout creamer, you ask me 'bout sugar
I tell you those things make me sick! In my...


[Chorus x 2]

Collide (Tweed Horse Sessions) Lyrics

Open up your box of sunshine
And smile as confetti comes raining down on you
You feel a lot like the good guy but do you know why
Everything's so blue

Well love is fire and the coals are barely burning
Cold fills the emptiness that fills this empty place
I taught you the walk but then you ran away from me
And that's not how it's supposed to be
I I collide with love as an elusive state of mind
I know there's something else it's supposed to be
I, I collide with love as an elusive state of mind
Something's killing me!

Tearful confessions have watered down and broken down
The chance for unrequited love to finally reach its wall
You're waiting for the axe to fall
Can't you see it lying on the ground?

You could be the best one at cleaning up this mess
Be the best one, be the best one, be the best one

Crazy Times (demo) Lyrics

You're cold that way
And that's why you say
The things that you say
You can't attract
The things that you lack
You're trying in vain

Chorus:

It seems it's always the crazy times
You find you'll wake up and realize
It takes more than your saline eyes
To make things right

Fly Farther Lyrics

He picked her up some flowers on a sunday afternoon
They sat out on the porch swing underneath the crescent moon
A lifetime seemed to pass
Staring at the skies
And on the swing he gave her the ring
There were tears in her eyes

I said I pray I'm not alone in my dreams about forever
That you and I could become one and always be together
We'd grow old and wise through all the days
For worse or for better
And I'll be true beside of you
Even now more than ever

And my time flies, but we'll fly farther
Into the night where the eyes of loneliness can never bother
All our dreams of together
Uneclipsed by never, never
My time flies; it's in your eyes
But we'll fly farther

Fifty years have ridden off into the sunset
And the tears that we have cried have overflown
And here we are, counting scars
Wounds of life's unending upset
You're with me and i'm with you
And I will never forget

And my time flies, but we'll fly farther
Into the night where the eyes of loneliness can never bother
All our dreams of together
Uneclipsed by never, never
My time flies; it's in your eyes
But we'll fly farther

He picked her up some flowers on a sunday afternoon
He rode the greyhound bus past the house they used to swoon
He knelt beside the grave, hung his head, a teardrop fell
And on the stone, an epitaph shown
The words he knew so well

And my time flies, but we'll fly farther
Into the night where the eyes of loneliness can never bother
All our dreams of together
Uneclipsed by never, never
My time flies; it's in your eyes
But we'll fly farther

My time flies, but we'll fly farther
Into the night where the eyes of loneliness can never bother
All our dreams of together
Uneclipsed by never, never
My time flies; it's in your eyes
But we'll fly farther

We'll fly farther
We'll fly farther

Frail (1994 demo) Lyrics

Convinced of my deception
I've always been a fool
I fear this love reaction
Just like you said I would

A rose could never lie
About the love it brings
And I could never promise
To be any of those things
Chorus:

If I was not so weak
If I was not so cold
If I was not so scared of being broken
Growing old
I would be...
I would be...
I would be...

Blessed are the shallow
Depth they'll never find
Seemed to be some comfort
In rooms I try to hide

Exposed beyond the shadows
You take the cup from me
Your dirt removes my blindness
Your pain becomes my peace

[Chorus]

...frail

Goodbye, Goodnight (demo) Lyrics

A flower for your vanity, a penny for your thoughts
About the world's insanity and how we've gotten lost
Strike up the band to play a song as we go waltzing by
And fake a smile as we all say goodbye

Goodbye, oh goodbye

Say a prayer for recognition, kiss the ones you love
Gather up the ammunition, sigh for all the lost
Strike up the band to play a song as we go waltzing by
And fake a smile as we all say goodbye

Raise a glass for ignorance, drink a toast to fear
The beginning of the end has come that's why we all are here
Strike up the band to play a song and try hard not to cry
And fake a smile as we all say goodbye
Goodbye

Grace (Hudson & Wells demo) Lyrics

God I admit I haven't changed
Playing card houses still covering my landscape
I never expected You to stay
When I'm grabbing for these crumbs and cold loose change

I feel Your grace come running over every road
I love the way You're calling overflow
I feel Your grace come running over every road
You break the floodgates down and carry all
God I admit that I've loved these chains
And crawling around this cage sometimes has its advantages
I know someday this could get old
And I'll need Your healing water to find my home

Headstrong (IA demo) Lyrics

Controlled, moderate, plastic
Aware and openly perfect
To know everything
And not see anything

Ingest completely impressive
You wear the law as a jacket
It keeps you warm
It keeps you warm

CHORUS
And I don't know what you've been told but it's wrong
And I can't hold you when you fall so headstrong
Headstrong, headstrong

Good enough, how sure a foundation
Trip on your graceful emotion
You remember it all
Then cover it all

CHORUS

CHORUS

It keeps you warm
It keeps you warm

CHORUS

Headstrong, headstrong
Headstrong, headstrong
Headstrong, headstrong

River Constantine (partial demo) Lyrics

Carry me, Your love is wider than my need could ever be
Come to me, and I will walk along Your shore
Feel Your crashing waves sing in time with the music of my heart

Pour out, come down on me
Pour out, come down on me

River deep, could I know You as well as You know me
Constantine, will we travel faster, farther than these
Legs could ever trustworthy be

Pour out, come down on me
Come down, pour out on me

Come down, pour out on me
Come down, pour out on me

The New Math Lyrics

Lost inside another argument
That's not what i meant
Equals compliment
And what I said just wasn't right
So I brought it to your attention

I'll be there when we finally make sense
When we give up our defense
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it anyway

These apologies are dentistry
If you're pulling teeth
Take a few from me
Cause I can't kiss my pride goodnight
Watch the sun go down
And still be right

I'll be there when we finally make sense
When we give up our defense
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it anyway

Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it

I'll be there when we finally make sense
When we give up our defense
Wouldn't want it anyway

I'll be there when we finally make sense
When we give up our defense
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it

Unforgetful You (remix) Lyrics

I never minded calling you a king
If that meant that I could count on you
To give me everything
I never thought to ask you
I always thought you knew
It was never my intention to question you

You never minded calling me a child
Well, I guess thats how I acted all the while
But you live through every tantrum, you see through every lie
Though they seem to be more common
I just wanted you to know why oh why

Unforgetful you, unforgetful
Unforgetful you, so unforgetful

You never minded giving us the stars
Then showing us how blind and unaware of you we are
You painted me a picture and showed me how to see
Though I just wont behold it
Unless it pertains to me...
