Stronger

(verse 1)

Life is a tall drink of water,

and I'll try to choke it down

But I've been dying of thirst,

for fear that I may slowly drown

(chorus)

*I've waited so long, waiting to be strong

So I've waited around, waiting to be found

But if I was stronger, I'd leave today

and if I knew better, I'd be on my way

But I haven't made enough mistakes

No matter how my heart breaks

No I want- to make this mistake- one more time

(verse 2)

I've longed to learn to fly,

but I've been too afraid I'd fall

and I've feared that I might die,

so I haven't lived at all

REPEAT *

(bridge)

Cause I've been reaching for the light, but I have been burned before

and the pain lives on in my memories, I can't take the hurt of it anymore

(conclusion)

But now I am stronger, than yesterday

and now I know better, I'm on my way

and I won't be making this mistake, no not this time...

Remedy

       Video Available: Courtesy of Rock On Philly    The Tin Angel

You ask so many questions; I don't wanna tell you lies                               

I don't have all the answers; I don't wanna improvise                                 

I don't wanna waste your time; It's a precious comodity

You're looking for a reason, when time's the remedy

 

Just a moment ago, the world had seemed alright

Then everything went wrong; now you're looking for a fight

 

You have so many questions; when time's your remedy

You're looking for a reason; to save your sanity

 

I have so many thoughts- that you may not wanna hear

-and I wish I knew what to say- to make your mind feel clear

 

It's a symptom of life; there are better or worse days

But in retrospect, it's all just a passin' phase

There were times before, and they will happen again

You have to hope and wait- 'cause you never can know when-

You'll be happy again...

 

You're looking for a reason; when time's your remedy

When you're done asking all your questions; you'll remember to be happy

Victor's Song

(verse 1)
I don't need no money; no charms or rings

I don't need no gold or diamonds; I don't like shiny things

No, I don't need no one to buy me, no more new shoes

No, I don't need nothing, no one, but I want you

(CHORUS)

'Cause I have everything, I have all that I need

and if you feel the same, you could share this life with me

and we'd have everything, that money can't buy

and if you feel the same, there'd be no mountain that we can't climb

and we'd share everything, that two people could need

and if you feel the same, you should be with me

 

(verse 2)

I don't need nothing that I can hold in my hand

Don't need no house, no fancy car, or even- a piece of land

No, I don't need nothing that money can ever buy

I don't need no anchor when I'm just learning to fly

(CHORUS)

 

'Cause I have everything, I have all that I need

and if you feel the same, you could share this life with me

and we'd have everything, that money can't buy

and if you feel the same, there'd be no mountain that we can't climb

and we'd share everything, that two people could need

and if you feel the same, you should be with me

 

 

(verse 3)

'Cause I've been waiting for so long- to finally be found

with my head in the clouds, and one foot on the ground

No, I don't need no one to tell me that the sky is blue

But darlin', the grass, is greener when I'm with you

(CHORUS)

'Cause I have everything, I have all that I need

and if you feel the same, you could share this life with me

and we'd have everything, that money can't buy

and if you feel the same, there'd be no mountain that we can't climb

and we'd share everything, that two people could need

and if you feel the same, you should be with me

Human Race

 Video available courtesy of:  Kawari Sound Recording Studio

Roll over, get out of bed; How I'd like to get out of my head                   

These days are long, when I don't know what is wrong                            

I'd like to find a place- to escape the human race

I'd like to stay there for a moment, for a moment...

I'd like to hide, somewhere deep inside

I'd like to hide... and just enjoy the ride

 

Wake up again, stuck in my head; why bother getting out of bed

There's no place for me to go; where I don't already know

that I will find myself again, my worst enemy and old best friend

I'd like to find a way- to escape for just one day

I said I'd like to go- Somewhere I don't know

I'd like to hide... and just enjoy the ride

 

'Cause I don't wanna listen, to my own troubled mind

-and I know I'll be mistaken, when I read between the lines

No, I don't know nothing- about nobody else-

I don't even know myself

 

I'd like to find a place to escape the human race

I'd like to stay there for a moment... For a moment-

Infinite Patience

Video available courtesy of: This is My Brave

(verse 1)                                                                           

Been one of those, long and foggy days                             

So thick and gray, you can't see through the haze

You're back and forth, wandering to and fro

You've lost your way, and you don't know where to go

But when you need, a place to rest your head

Hear these words, remember that I said

(chorus)

*You can come home, you can- come home

I wanna be your home- Come home to me

(verse 2)

The path you're on is the long and scenic route

No where to hang your hat or toss your boots

Your burden's heavy, your heart's full of pain

You tell yourself, "Can't go home again"

But when you're ready- to lighten your load

You'll have a place to rest from the road

(chorus)

'cause you can come home, you can- come home

I wanna be your home- Come home to me

(bridge)

You should know- there'll be a place

to rest your head, when there's no where to be instead

You should know- there'll be a place

to have a warm meal... and let yourself heal

ohhhhh... said you can come on home

come home, baby to me~

(verse 3)

Come on home, put your tired eyes to bed

quiet down, the thoughts inside your head

Tonight there's no more words to say

Tonight words don't mean nothing anyway

So, you can come home, you can- come home

I wanna be your home- Come home to me

Come home to me...

come home to me...

Come home to me~

My Own Bed

Oh, I can't wait to fall asleep in my own bed

to find the pillow, soft beneath my head

Though I'll dream of you, just like I know you always do

When the dawn breaks, I wake alone instead

 

Been walking 'round- in someone else's shoes

wondering why, I've been feeling so confused

-and I've tried, and I've tried... to let my fears subside

But at the end of the day, I just feel used

 

(Bridge)

I didn't know- How to let my feelings show

Been so afraid- to be out on my own

So I'll try to live- without the love you give

if when you see me again, you'll know I've grown

 

Oh, I can't wait to fall asleep in my own bed

to find the pillow, soft beneath my head

though I'll dream of you, just like you know I always do

When the dawn breaks, I'll wake alone instead.

She Ain't Me

She likes to ride in fast cars and hang out late in bars
She drinks a lot of beer and never sheds a tear
She wears a fancy dress and never makes a mess
But she doesn't fight fair- so buyer beware

No, she ain't me- This here girl you see
No matter what you do, she can't be with you

She looks like me.  She's my evil twin.
Knows all my secrets, shares in every sin
If you don't believe me wait around and see
She's my very best friend and my worst enemy

She likes to entertain, and she may seem vain
She'd like to be a star but can't play a guitar
and though we look the same, and we share a name
I'm nothing like her- who you'd prefer

No, she ain't me- This here girl you see
No matter what you do, she can't be with you

No I'm a different girl from the one you see
I ain't her, and she ain't me
If you find a way to get her into your bed
You'll wind up waking next to me instead

So don't waste your time, buying her whiskey or wine
You'll ask for her number, but she'll give you mine
No, she ain't me- This here girl you see
No matter what you do, do, do... she can't be with you!
