WAITING ON THE STRENGTH
Let it down

I can see your soul
Don't hide, don't try
Bring it out
I can make you whole
Don't be so shy

The closer that you get the more you pull away
It feels so strange to...

Make your mind up
To be at peace when
The pieces fall into place
But you'll have your fun
Waiting on the strength that never comes

Come around
Cause I'm always home
Meet me inside
Beat it down
Let me know you know
What I provide

The closer that you get the more you pull away
It feels so strange to...

Make your mind up
To be at peace when
The pieces fall into place
But you'll have your fun
Waiting on the strength that never comes

FACES
In an underground
Search for frequencies
Playing ghostly sounds
And ancient histories

With the innocence
Of an infancy
Long before this brow
Carried anything

Tune the radio
To that lonely song
And away we go
Lord its been too long
It's the way we grow
From the things we do wrong

Faces are taking me back
To a place I never go
And it's so nice to see you
It's so nice to see you
We could've kept it on track
But I guess we'll never know
Still it's so nice to see you
It's so nice to see you

I forget to move
As the station plays
A familiar tune
On a loop for days

It's not that I won't do
Or that I can't say
It's just the worst of me
Getting in the way

It's the same old news
That you know so well
Still afraid to lose
Though Ill never tell
It's the simple truth
Ringing clear as a bell

Faces are taking me back
To a place I never go
And its so nice to see you
Its so nice to see you
We could've kept it on track
But I guess well never know
Still it's so nice to see you
It's so nice to see you

BETTER WHEN
You search among the faces of the people that you love
To see yourself for who you are and not what you've become
With greater ease you lock your knees and push it straight ahead
You swore an oath to bear the load of what you should have said
Shamed eyes and naked tears will follow
I've tried so many years
To turn the volume down
It feels a little bit better when you're not around
And you know
You're so much better than the one that tries to bring you down
But you know youve got to shut me out
You search among the pieces of the mess you made of love
To touch the good that never could replace what you gave up
With greater speed you fill the need to hell with all the rest
A hand to hold that held the load thats weighing on your chest
Shamed eyes and naked tears will follow
I've tried so many years
To turn the volume down
It feels a little bit better when youre not around
And you know
You're so much better than the one that tries to bring you down
But you know you've got to shut me out


DRUNKEN DANCES
Anything
You'll take anything and run
I keep it simple
My word is your temple of fun

Everyday
Push me everyday the same
I feel your beating
But that rhythm is fleeting and lame

Why should we get second chances?
We were never led astray
Making too much of these drunken dances
Never drunk enough to say

How was I to know that when push came to shove
We'd be squaring off against almighty love?
Take this hand and lay it down over your eyes

Beautiful
You feel beautiful and strange
I feel unstable
Willing but unable to change

Why should we go through the motions
Knowing what must lie ahead?
Careless words and unwelcome emotions
What would happen if we said...

How was I to know that when push came to shove
We'd be squaring off against almighty love?
Take this hand and feel the blind leading the blind



LET'S BE ENEMIES
Everything you put on
And everything you hide
Start to mesh into one
Beautiful, messed up lie that I find
So very familiar that this feelings starting to fade
So lets be enemies since were both so afraid
These hearts beat cold and numb
And scream out what we've become
Perfect for the people we hated
Were so certain that well never be hated
Every word you ignore
And all the ways I tried
To make you notice me more
Has all been a waste of time though I'm not
Certain well ever learn to be more than this pitiful show
Oh, but let's be enemies since we already know
These hearts beat cold and numb
And scream out that weve become
Perfect for the people we hated
Were so certain that well never be hated
We're such imperfect lovers
In love with lies
You know we're perfect for the people we hated
We're so certain that well never be hated
You know we're perfect for the people we hated
We're so certain that well never be hated

LINES ON LOVE

Words that travel on the waves
Rising from an endless sea
Find your welcoming embrace
Tell you who you want to be

Angels pulling on their strings
Whisper words to keep me safe
Doubts arise about their wings
Every time I hear them say....

Give it up; give it up; give it up and let it go
I'm never, never, never, never, never gonna let it go
Give it up; give it up; give it up and let it go
Oh, no...

Keep your lines on love
Free for everybody, but you know you'll owe
Keep your lines on love
Just like everybody you're on your own

From the lips of every face
Custom made for you and me
Spoken only once with grace:
To be loved is to be free

It's so hard to understand
Offered up in shades of grey
From a less than perfect man
But you'll never hear me say...

Give it up; give it up; give it up and let it go
I'm never, never, never, never, never gonna let it go
Give it up; give it up; give it up and let it go

Keep your lines on love
Free for everybody, but you know youll owe
Keep your lines on love
Just like everybody you're on your own

I don't feel like dancing for you
I don't feel like dancing for you
You won't see me dancing for you
I don't feel like dancing so just

Keep your lines on love
Free for everybody, but you know youll owe
Keep your lines on love
Just like everybody, you're on your own



TIP OF YOUR TONGUE
Now that you know mother won't be back
Play your music loud
You were the one stepping on the cracks
Are you happy now?

I know that I'm just a pawn
Waiting for someone to push me along
Playing that unrecognizable song that's always
Just on the tip of your tongue

Now that your world is a safer place
You can stand your ground
No one to question the rules youve made
For the why and how

I know that I'm just a pawn
Waiting for someone to push me along
Playing that unrecognizable song thats always
Just on the tip of your tongue

Tell the neighbors and call the papers
You'll feel safer

I know that I'm just a pawn
Waiting for someone to push me along
Playing that unrecognizable song that's always
Just on the tip of your tongue



ROOM WITH A VIEW
This place is warm and white
It locks from the outside
I fell alone like I can't be seen
Peel the curtain. Understand.
And feel it shatter against my hand
I feel it shatter against my hand

Room with a view where I'm found and broken
Oh, let me go
You always knew that this house was open
So where did you go?

Home again
These walls welcome me in
They feel so old and thin
But they're clean
Open window. Green and blue.
While I'm standing right here with you
I'll be standing right here with you

Room with a view where I'm found and broken
Oh, let me go
You always knew that this house was open
So where did you go?



WASTED, LOVELY THING
These eyes have been shown
What they would search to find
Some sights have been known
To make you blind

Don't touch what you don't own
Don't seek what you won't find
Don't care where this belongs
Now its mine

More than I need but I don't want to waste it
Ripped at the seams every time that I taste it
I know what I'd see if I turned and I faced it
A suffocated, wasted, lovely thing

These eyes have been shown
What won't be hard to find
I'll try keeping them closed
For a time
Such a long time

More than I need but I don't want to waste it
Ripped at the seams every time that I taste it
I know what I'd see if I turned and I faced it
A suffocated, wasted, lovely thing


Free to believe in a love with an open door
Healed by the weight of mistakes that you made before



RECKLESS BEHAVIOR
Had a dollar bill and some time to kill
I went to get my fill and wound up nowhere
Had an easy love. It didn't hurt enough
I had to mess it up cause I dont play fair
Why should I care?

Reckless behavior is wrecking my day
I take no pleasure in causing this pain
Sooner or later this bed will be made
And then I can sleep all night
Knowing what's wrong went right

Had a reason for wanting something more
Now I want some more and I cant say when
Had to make the call, the reason for the fall
Like a wrecking ball I'm swinging again
Now sing it again

Reckless behavior is wrecking my day
I take no pleasure in causing this pain
Sooner or later this bed will be made
And then I can sleep all night
Knowing what's wrong went right

Knowing whats wrong went right
