I never met anyone like you You've got a smile for everyone But also a tear You never talk down Even when you're joking or messing around There's never a time that you're ever unkind Trying to do something good in the ocean Trying not to only makes you laugh more And a head full of clouds Slips away to the sea Now we're down on the boardwalk And we're whirling around on the rides And we're walking along And they're still singing the songs We used to sing all those nights Down at the Riptides I remember those days How I almost let you get away But you shouldered the pain And a head full of rain Never turned your back on me You've got a beautiful way You've got a beautiful way about you You've got a beautiful way You do I never met anyone like you Oh no You've got a smile for everyone But also a tear You never talk down Even when we're joking or messing around There's never a time that you're ever unkind No Trying to do something good in the ocean Trying not to only makes you laugh more And a heart bound with chains Breaks away and I'm free Because your kiss on my mouth Is what's turning the key You've got a beautiful way You've got a beautiful way about you You've got a beautiful way You do I never met anyone like you I never met anyone like you

Don’t look me in the soul If you don’t want my truth Unravel me a crayon Slap you in the face blue Don’t you smile so wide boy I might not know it’s you Fifth string of a rainbow Slap you in the face blue You will be a friend when my head learns to distort Get your paws off of my back My breath is getting short You know the party’s over When you’re passed out on the floor April’s out the window You don’t have a clue Soaked in your umbrella Slap you in the face blue And by the time you get it I’ll be living in a shoe Breaking in the converse Slap you in the face blue Who’d have thought my company Would turn out such a bore? Running through the same routine We don’t know what for You know you’ve got to walk When you’re not dancing anymore I wake up in the morning stuck with this tattoo If you don’t come around soon brother, God knows what I’ll do Slap you in the face, slap you in the face Slap you in the face, slap you in the face Slap you in the face, slap you in the face Slap you in the face Blue

Concussion 02:42
I pushed until you pulled away It’s no surprise at all you didn’t stay You even told me but I did it anyway Bruises on my brain I read our texts the other day Sometimes I can’t believe the things I say And now I’ve lost a year Because I couldn’t wait a day Bruises on my brain You say don’t curse Don’t f’n tell me what to do That girl was smiling when you walked in the room I’ll swing this hook so hard That she’ll be seeing two of you Concussion Still feel your heart beat into mine The only thing that seems to keep in time These memories rattling my head Have got me out of line Maybe I’m insane You taught me love You taught me what it is I hate You taught me patience You’re so good at being late You taught me everything Except for how to wait for you You say don’t curse Don’t f’n tell me what to do That girl was smiling when you walked in the room I’ll swing this hook so hard That she’ll be seeing two of you Two of you Look what you do Look what you do Concussion I pushed until you pulled away It’s no surprise at all you didn’t stay You even told me but I did it anyway Bruises on my brain

Letter To Ex 03:26
Sometimes at night I wonder where you are Turn out the light Walk out to the stars Are you living right Driving round in some fancy car? Tell me how are you doing In your new way of life? It's hard to imagine You're someone else's wife I guess I don't understand it It just didn't work out for me And you It's true babe Oh I reminisce 'Bout the times that we had The simple kiss Was enchanting Was enhancing Yeah Do do 'n do do Ah Sometimes at night I wonder where you are Turn out the light Walk out to the stars Are you living right Driving round in some fancy car?

Hawk of a man with a bill in his hand Sucking all the good seed out of the land And the world goes round And the world goes round Chopping down trees in the dirty breeze Dropping down a deep freeze overseas And the world goes round And the world goes round And I’m in love I'm in love And I want to stay alive Want my children’s children to survive I’m in love I'm in love I'm in love I'm in love Peeping Tom with a CD Rom Learning how to make his own atomic bomb And the world goes round And the world goes round Talk is at an all time high today Still nobody knows exactly what to say And the world goes round And the world goes round And I’m in love You say the sun is a she I must say indeed I do agree Giving all the light she can She’s too warm to be a man You say the earth’s her sister I want the men who’ve twisted her She’ll still be coming around Long after they’re all in the ground And the world goes round And the world goes round And I'm in love I’m in love I'm in love I'm in love And I don’t care if it’s naïve To give your heart and still believe in love I'm in love I'm in love Oh Awed by the size of a baby’s eyes She smiles at her daddy and he’s hypnotized And the world goes round And the world goes round Bigger than the name Bigger than the game Bigger than the bang from which everything came And the world goes round And the world goes round And I’m in love

Still Dark 04:24
Does that song make you think of me? Do the words play on your heart? When you sing along do you ever long For all our time and all our love? Taking care of your mind and body Has never been easy for you All this time we’re taking apart Is breaking this heart I can’t give to someone new Last night I saw you The lake frozen over Your eyes still glassy with moonshine Bruises you’re listing Truths you keep twisting Proudly insisting that you’re fine But you’ll be the star On your new guitar Play them The Wall again No one will know who you are You’re still dark Has that house on the lake made you happy yet? Is it better now that he’s home? Did it make you a kid again? Feel like you’re fitting in? Why’d you just tell me you’re so alone? It felt like that song made you think of me As you played for all of our friends Yes it said he would let her in If she came back to him You look away again when it ends Turn off the light now Keep the lake frozen How deep do you drill till you drown there? There’s nothing like you and me Search the entire sea Only more space to be found there But you’ll be the star On your new guitar Play them The Wall again No one will know in your heart You’re still dark Your new guitar My broken heart Will always be haunting me Knowing wherever you are You’re still dark

There’s a river outside this cabin Rolling through the woods I figured heading north for mountain air Might do some good And it did ‘cause there’s a clarity I've never had before I can see the road in front of me I don’t look back no more Let me be just like that river Flowing right outside my door And the sunrise will deliver me I don’t look back no more The past don’t owe me nothin’ And regrets just weigh a ton What’s the use in stressin’ Over somethin’ said and done? I’m swinging in the moment And I’ll play it where it lands The future’s still unwritten But the present’s in my hands Not too much left here now to bank on Don't you look back Still one thing I know for sure Don't you look back Sister, all has been forgiven I don’t look back no more Sunrise, deliver me I’m a river to the sea I’m a phoenix eagle flying I’m a newborn baby crying I’m the dawn of a new day rising Over the line of a blue horizon I’m the light from a distant sun I’m a journey just begun On my way and feeling fine All I’m taking is what’s mine I’m gonna be just like that river Streaming onward evermore And each sunrise will deliver me I ain't lookin' back no more Ain’t gonna be like my friend Edith Don't you look back When she left Sodom and Gomorrah Don't you look back Wasn’t nobody’s fault Woman just turned to salt I ain’t looking back no more Sunrise, deliver me I’m a river to the sea I’m a phoenix eagle flying I’m a newborn baby crying I’m the dawn of a new day rising Over the line of a blue horizon I’m the light from a distant sun I’m a journey just begun On my way and feeling fine All I’m taking is what’s mine

Where you lead I will follow Ocean rain and clearest mountain air You show me the way Through straight and narrow paths And I will follow you there Where you're going to I will go For you know You are everything to me Point the way and I will follow you Through and through Like a river to the sea Where you lead I will follow You can have me every single day Hungering for you here is a heart so hollow I know for me there is no other way Where you're going to I will go For you know You are everything to me Point the way and I will follow you Through and through Like a river to the sea
