SECRETS-

Ooh ooh ooh ooh I'm gonna tell on you (x2)
Always pushing everybody around
never tell the truth when you open your mouth
ooh ooh ooh ooh…I'm gonna tell on you

1.1.1.1.1....2.2.2.2.2
3,3,3,3,3…4,4,4,4,4

Ooh ooh ooh ooh no one ever calls you out (x2)
alligator tears dripping down from your eyes
wake up in the morning and put on your disguise\
ooh ooh ooh ooh no one ever calls you out.

1.1.1.1.1....2.2.2.2.2
3,3,3,3,3…4,4,4,4,4

Hold still don't make a sound     
put your feet back on the ground. 
Let me show you what I've found
your secrets, your secrets

Take the gun and lay it down
walk away don't turn around
or I'll show them what I found
your secrets, your dirty little secrets. 

Ooh ooh ooh ooh nothing that you said was true (x2)
never say you're sorry when caught in the act
making up a story when we all know the fact
ooh ooh ooh ooh…nothing that you said was true.

 

1.1.1.1.1....2.2.2.2.2
3,3,3,3,3…4,4,4,4,4


Hold still don't make a sound     
put your feet back on the ground. 
Let me show you what I've found
your secrets, your secrets.

Take the gun and lay it down
walk away don't turn around
or I'll show them what I found
your secrets, your dirty little secrets. 

     
    BALL & CHAIN

I don't need your love
I don't need your ball and chain 
you push and you shove
then you find someone to blame 

you bang and you bruise
chasing everyone away 
the people you lose
always turn and say 

I'm not coming back/coming back/coming back to you. (x2)

You believe you're right  
you can't see how lost you are    
you scream and you fight
slammed your fist and left a scar 

I'm not coming back/coming back/coming back to you. (x2)

I'm walking away
leaving all of this behind
don't care if you change
when you wake up you're gonna find.  

I just wanted to say
this is really the last time
won't meet you half-way
I can't keep you on my mind  

I'm not coming back/coming back/coming back to you.  (x2)



BOYFRIEND

I saw a girl with a look in her eye
It wasn't easy but it wasn't shy
her dress and her jewelry sparkled and shined
when the boys walked up they each had a line.  

But when they walked across the room
She said "you came too soon"
then the band kicked back in
she started moving back and forth again
dirty dancing with all her friends.  

She's been thinking bout her boyfriend boyfriend
She's been thinking bout what he don't do
She's going dancing for the weekend weekend
She's got her friends and her brand new shoesShe did her hair her lips her fingertips
You'll love it when she shakes her hips to the beat
She's been thinking bout her boyfriend boyfriend
She's been thinking bout what he don't do  

Something about her cut through the air. 
Jumping around like nobody cared
Spinning in circles like no one was there
off of the table into a chair. 

But when they walked across the room
She said "you came too soon"
then the band kicked back in
she started moving back and forth again
dirty dancing with all her friends.  

She's been thinking bout her boyfriend boyfriend
She's been thinking bout what he don't do
She's going dancing for the weekend weekend
She's got her friends and her brand new shoesShe did her hair her lips her fingertips
You'll love it when she shakes her hips to the beat
She's been thinking bout her boyfriend boyfriend
She's been thinking bout what he don't do  

she started moving back and forth again
dirty dancing with all her friends.  

She's been thinking bout her boyfriend boyfriend
She's been thinking bout what he don't do
She's going dancing for the weekend weekend
She's got her friends and her brand new shoesShe did her hair her lips her fingertips
You'll love it when she shakes her hips to the beat
She's been thinking bout her boyfriend boyfriend
She's been thinking bout what he don't do  



MERCY

LOOKING BACK INTO THE MIRROR
PAINTS A SMILE ON TO HER FACE. 
THE ONLY THING THAT'S GETTING CLEARER
THAT OVER TIME SHE FELL FROM GRACE

IT'S ALL PART OF THE ILLUSION
YOU SEE WHAT SHE WANTS YOU TO SEE
SHE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT SHE'S DOING
BUT ONLY THE TRUTH WILL SET HER FREE

SHE SAYS- OH…OH OH X3    HAVE MERCY ON ME

HAVE MERCY ON ME, MERCY ON ME
I JUST CAN'T KEEP FROM LYING
HAVE MERCY ON ME, MERCY ON ME
IM FALLING AND PRETENDING  IM FLYING

SHE CAN'T COUNT HOW MUCH IT'S COST HER
IF SHE WON'T BEGIN
IT'S BEEN YEARS NOW SINCE WE LOST HER 
AND THE CROWDS KEEP ROLLING IN

OH…OH OH X3   HAVE MERCY ON ME

HAVE MERCY ON ME, MERCY ON ME
I JUST CAN'T KEEP FROM LYING
HAVE MERCY ON ME, MERCY ON ME
IM FALLING AND PRETENDING  IM FLYING
HAVE MERCY ON ME, MERCY ON ME
SELLING ANYTHING THAT YOU'RE BUYING
HAVE MERCY ON ME, MERCY ON ME
I JUST CAN'T KEEP FROM LYING. 



THE OTHER SIDE 

You keep going backwards now you're stuck in overdrive 
You need to have the last word but the thing is so do I 

you're going for a ride
off to the other side 

You're going down down down down to the ground further than before
I won't be coming round round round I can't see you anymore

you're going for a ride, off to the other side

I don't really want to fight no more
I've seen a side of you I can't ignore
whatever happened to the girl I know
she's gone and now I have to let you go

You keep falling faster now you're clinging to the vine  
I can't reach my hand out when you sting it every time. 

you're going for a ride,off to the other side

I don't really want to fight no more
I've seen a side of you I can't ignore
whatever happened to the girl I know
she's gone and now I have to let you go (x2)



EXPECTATION 

You said today's been crazy.  Nothing's going right. 
Everyone you ran into, tried to start a fight
You looked into your mailbox, no one ever writes.  
The only thing addressed to you is turning off the lights. 

Ohhh, let the expectation go.
Ohhh, and everything you need will show. 

You break up with your girlfriend, then you want her back. 
You never second guess yourself, you're just running around the track.  
The dogs are always barking.  The rent is always late. 
Everything is crashing down.  You're carrying the weight. 

Ohhh, let the expectation go. 
Ohh, and everything you need will show.  
Ohh, let the expectation go. 
Ohhh, and everything you need will show. 

You say there is no reason.  Nothing goes your way.  
No one to believe in.  You let it slip away. 
Time to take this pathos and leave it on the shelf.  
No one's out to get you man, you do it to yourself. 

Ohhh, let the expectation go. 
Ohhh, and everything you need will show. 


STRAY 

She gonna leave me, she's gonna walk away
She gonna leave me, she gonna leave me today. 
She don't believe me, she don't hear what I say
She don't believe me, she don't think I can change

I don't know what to do 

She's making me crazy, I think I'm losing my mind
She's making me crazy, wish I was deaf, dumb, and blind. 

I don't know what to do, I don't know how to pray
I don't know if we're through, there's only one thing to say

She's Gone
she knew what to do before the fight broke out. 
left town, no doubt.
no scream and shout
I don't even know what the fights about.

Just Do it. Stray
I knew it. Walk away

I guess she don't want me, nothing I do is ok. 
I guess she don't want me, she don't want me this way

She's Gone
she knew what to do before the fight broke out. 
left town, no doubt.
no scream and shout
I don't even know what the fights about.

Just Do it. Stray
I knew it. Walk away



ECHO 

When we are gone, when we are dead 
What do we see, what's in our head
Do we meet a holy man
And echo through the days
When we are gone, when we are dead

If they were wrong, the stories we read
Where no one was free
And everyone bled 
Do we leave those thoughts behind
And echo through the days 
If they were wrong, the stories we read

If we belong, it leaves it unsaid
It's not over there
or just up ahead
Believe what's on your mind
And echo through the days
If we belong, it leaves it unsaid. 



THE FEELING 

EVERY TIME I WONDER WHAT I'M STANDING UNDER/    I LOSE MY CONCENTRATION/ FORGET THE DESTINATION
IS THE SKY A CEILING, DOES NOTHING HAVE A MEANING?
LISTEN TO THE BIRDS SING, UNDERSTANDING EVERYTHING

LIVING IN THE DAYTIME, HIDING FROM THE NIGHTTIME/ 
YEARS JUST SEEM TO BLOW BY, WAITING FOR THE RIGHT TIME
WHEN I START BELIEVING, THAT NOTHING HAS A MEANING
THOUGHTS BEGIN TO FADE AWAY/ THEN I GET THE FEELING. (AHH AHH)

IMAGES THEY COME TO ME/ AS I FALL INTO MY SLEEP
LAY ME DOWN IN SHEETS OF WHITE/ CLOSE THE DOOR TURN OFF THE LIGHT
THE HOURS THAT I'M DREAMING/ EFFORTLESS AND FREEING. 
WAKE UP WHEN THE BIRDS SING/ UNDERSTANDING EVERYTHING. 

WHEN I WAS JUST WAITING, HIDING HESITATING
RUNNING FROM THE DEMONS/ SEARCHING FOR A REASON
CHASING GOLDEN MEMORY/ THOSE THREE WORDS SHE SAID TO ME. 
THE MOMENT WAS REVEALING/THEN I FOUND  THE FEELING

 

OVER OCEANS

 

On and on.  the ancient echo of a song
From far away.  I hear the chords they used to play
as i look back.  through the embers of the past
I Chase the light. distant fire burning bright. 

Over Oceans/ The light it shines and the Morning Comes
Never Hopeless (Always hopeful) Counting time for everyone/
In slow motion/ we circle (we're drifting around) around the sun. 

Through the glass/waiting for the hour to pass
Under waves/seeking refuge in the shade (from the haze) 
into the night/ restless lovers holding tight.  
Beneath the sound/the world is spinning all around

Over Oceans/ The light it shines and the Morning Comes
Never Hopeless (Always hopeful) Counting time for everyone/
In slow motion/ we circle (we're drifting around) around the sun. 

On and on and on 
Long after we're gone..
We will become/ the ancient ones
but until our time upon the earth is done.

Over Oceans/ The light it shines and the Morning Comes
Never Hopeless (Always hopeful) Counting time for everyone/
In slow motion/ we circle (we're drifting around) around the sun. 
Drifting.
