Every year goes faster by, can't remember nothing special about it Could it be 'cause everyone's in a hurry to get to nowhere I don't want to be let down, no I'm just like all the rest of ya's But I don't see why people get down on me while I'm just waiting for you Yeah I'm just waiting for you It's around all the time. You could see if you were looking Take a break from your mind. Leave it all to everybody If you're waiting on a sign, isn't this one as good as any When you want to turn it down, you can bet that I'll be waiting for you Yeah I'll be waiting for you
Time is on my side I feel I'm on the rise And you've been on my mind The way you look so kind Maybe I'm just getting ahead of myself I take these things too far sometimes Give it a chance and I know you'd find The twenty story high's alright Far beneath my skin Fear was taking hold But since I let you in It's a love I've never known
Til Dawn 01:09
I like the story, the way you tell it You get me hangin' on your every word You better let your heart, let your heart show pretty baby Could tell me you love me If you mean it... or not at all You know he showed me the songs he'd written They were about you half of the time You might watch your back, watch your back little darlin He'll tell you he loves you And you'll believe it... for a while So I was thinkin' if you let me I'd take you out for the night You might see my side, see my side little baby And you could take it Or you could leave it... I don't mind Tell me again and again, I'm here to listen Though it seems you only need to tell yourself Over and over again that nothing's missing But I hope it won't be of much help
Song For Ben 02:47
I'll fix the leaks on the ceiling above your bed You'll draw the blinds and let the sunshine in You'll move along through the haze and through the fog Through the summer, winter, fall I know it I'll take a shower and clean myself up for good I'm a man of few words, I stick with the herd I know not to stray far from the flock I take things as I see them Most of the time I wanna say it's great to be here again I know you meant what you said But then I lost your number Just think how sweet it might have been Had we known each other But it's not enough to know you know It's not enough to know you know It's not enough to know you know Where I'm going and where I'm at Maybe I'll call you when I get back from the road I wanna say it's great to be leaving again
You never look at me that way Baby why don't you say what's really on your mind Do you ever feel you might be wrong Baby why can't I see you Do you ever feel you might be wrong Baby why... I'm gonna die... If I can't see you then I might as well be blind
Waking blind, pulled from deep sleep They tell me I may have died inside that dream I may have seen a light I may have died it seems There's something you gotta know before they take you away You gotta take it slow if you wanna stay in the game There's something you gotta know before they take you away Close my eyes so I can't see you Already heard enough, or more than I wanted to But now I've seen a light And I can't escape this dream
Everyone is on my case Get on your own and you might find a taste of love... love... I never asked for none of this But I got hooked when first we kissed oh love... love... I could have died right there on the floor But you had the nerve to come back for more of my love... love...
Every Notion 05:20
I try to satisfy my every notion I'll cling to anything to get me through You've got to feel your way through every motion I try to keep myself in time with you I've been trying everything But still I fall apart You've nearly broken all of me But you'll never break my heart You'll never see the sun come up You'll never see the light You'll never realize the day You'll never feel the knife Baby why... oh no... Do you feel you might be wrong
