Desperate Times Best Forgotten
- Burden To Bear -
This burden you bear, Is far from fair
The weight on your shoulders, I see and I care.
I'll Help you carry this burden as long as its yours to bear,
And know that wherever you go i'll follow you there.
I sit and I ponder, how to ease the pain,
A wait filled with wonder, and fear for the same.
I wish I could change the way that it is,
Turn back time to rediscover and solve all the heartache you suffer,
Always know this, I admire you like no other.
- Do You Think Of Me -
Tell me my dear, where do we go, where do we go from here?
Please don't tell me not to act like nothings wrong,
I know theres a chance we wont make it
But the feeling of woe that i get when you go,
The emptiness it leaves inside.
The love i wanna show, but the reason i don't,
It seemed so easy for you to say no, (Let go).
Do you think of me, and how it used to be,
Do you think of me, and if you do I hope that your happy
Tell me my love, where do we go, where do we go from here?
The time i spent with you was the best I've ever had,
The thought of the end makes me sad
- Game Of Love -
Well i guess you could call this the end,
Some might say the point of no return,
I held hope there'd be a chance we might mend,
The mistakes we made with the lessons we've learned.
For the love that you gave,
The investment of time you made,
All the money you saved,
For those plans well made,
Doesn't it feel like a shame or a waste,
The game of love.
Well I've heard its better to have loved and lost,
Than never to have loved at all,
I can't deny the happiness i once felt,
But at what cost did it come?
Well its time to say goodbye my friend,
I hope ill see you down the road,
Until that day high my head i will hold,
Cause you I'm happy to have known.
- I Guess Its All Just Part Of Lovin' You -
Please forgive me i know not what i do,
I struggle to explain my feelings towards to you,
The time we spend together teaches me more about myself,
And your company brings a feeling of wealth.
Im sorry for the things i put you through,
The complications i may have caused you,
Believe me when i say, Its not what i meant to do,
I guess its all just part of lovin' you.
Please have mercy on me, see who I'm trying to be,
Someone you can rely on,
I don't have much to offer, but what i have ill give to you,
Along with all the love i have too.
- Hope You Find What You're Looking For -
When i wake i don't want to partake in a life without you,
Im not ready to part your still in my heart,
Can you tell me how we got to here? Cause I'm not so clear,
So i will take this chance to say to you my dear.
I hope you find what you're looking for,
But i can't lie i had hoped for more,
But i wont make it hard for you to close the door.
It weighs heavy on my mind, Its so hard to find happiness inside,
With change comes the fear you may lose all that you hold near,
Only time will show the mistakes we have made that led us to hear,
So i will take this chance to say to you my dear.
- Rock In A Hard Place -
You're my rock and my hard place, the reason i can't face the truth,
You lift me up when you come round, but when you're down on me,
i can't seem to see a way out of here, Im surrounded by fear.
You're my saviour not the devil, still you put me through hell,
So that i can't tell who I'm supposed to be, please reach out your hands to catch me,
I believe in what we can be.
I don't want you to need me, I need you to want me,
If you don't, i wont, hold it against you, but theres just one thing that you can do,
Wont you make up your mind, theres no need to be unkind.
Still you keep me behind your walls, I don't know if i could take another fall,
When either way i lose, whats my incentive to chose.
- Leave Me Be -
Like the saboteur you raise the bar just to watch me fall,
Tall i stand heart in hand and live it all.
Leave me be, the tricks you play wont get to me,
Leave me be, no cheat or lie will conquer i,
You will see.
Just like before i find you there knocking at my door,
Despite your call i wont drop the ball, you're rotten to the core.
By your leave i wont live my life no more,
I need to breathe and frankly you've become a bore.
- Waitin' On A Love That'll Never Come -
I thought this time it'd be different, how wrong i was,
And in these times i look at myself in the mirror,
Don't know who i see, i sure hope it aint me.
Was i deaf did i not hear, was i blind did i not see, I've been dumb,
Waiting on a love that'll never come.
I shoulda known better and took care of myself, but i didn't,
Shoulda been more careful to who i gave my trust but i wasn't,
I did what i felt i must.
I weep for what I've become, how little i mean to someone,
For the things i cannot discern, this love ill never earn.
- I Want You To Always Know -
I want you to always know what you mean to me,
I would never take from you, i loved you for all the things you do.
Well I've learned that to work for either one of us, It must work for both
And that some things just aren't meant to be,
Still i want you to know what you mean to me.
I want you to always take with the knowledge i never wanted to leave you so,
And when i think of you its always with love in my heart,
I guess life can just change when you least expect it to.
- Aint Got No Use -
I don't hear that knocking at my door,
Nor the ringing of the phone no more,
Only in my memory can i recall the sound of your voice,
The feeling of happiness that only comes from shared rejoice.
Loneliness is a friend, Ill hold it close in the absence of your hand in mine.
Aint got no use for this broken heart,
Nor any kind of heart now were apart,
Free me from the noose cause i aint got not use,
I know ill be fine, but for now I'm asking you in kind,
To take this broken heart of mine.
I struggle to find a way to understand this in my mind,
Tormented by loss the space beside me where love once was,
I miss knowing where and how you are,
My love remains strong even though now its from afar.
- No Matter What -
Money may come and go but i wont you know,
Through thick and thin its always been a home from home.
Writing to reach you, I'm trying to make you see,
No matter what may come of us,
To the end, ill be with you my friend.
Ill be with you my friend.
The sweetest of hearts long to align when apart,
Come what may you'll always be able to say.
- Were All In It Together -
I don't know what i know or where i should go but i wont worry, Its only money,
Travel round without a care don't take my problems anywhere,
Listen honey, thats just life aint it funny.
Well, be happy with who you are,
You got your health and its got you this far,
And wherever you may go, ill be there to tell you so.
Were all in it together don't you know.
Out From Under
- I Am What I Am -
They rule the way of things with deceit they cheat you of your voice,
But each of us has a story to tell, listen well consider your choice.
I am what i am, don't need no one to tell me that,
I will stand tall where others may fall.
An eye for an eye, would leave the whole world blind,
I have no quarrel with you, but trust i must in what i do.
- Puppet On A String -
If you bow your head at challenges, the chance to better yourself seldom rears its head,
Troubled times they may follow you, choose carefully what you set out to do,
Don't let them turn you into.
A puppet on a string, you can't do a thing unless its done for you,
Puppet on a string like a bird without its wings, you can't go no where unless taken there.
Time has taught us many things, our eyes have shown us what it brings,
Lessons learnt for you and me, theres no need to feel that you must flea,
'Cause you don't have to be.
- I'd Give It All Up For You -
Nothing stands between you and I, Just the air and the four feet of floor,
The nerves and the ones who say, it'll never work for a girl like you and a boy like me.
I take a step towards you, lump in my throat Its been sometime since we first me,
I remember it well, you wore the red coat I'd just hoped that you wouldn't forget.
I would give it all up for you, the things I love for your hand too,
All that I am, I'm willing to share, for the love of a woman who cares.
Now we stand shoulder to shoulder, I place a hand on the bar,
You bought me a drink, i hope you didn't think me cheap, even then i knew we'd go far.
Often these things, they don't happen over night but i knew you were worth the fight,
I will admit i coulda been quicker to say it, but I'm not used to luck with love.
Look at us now i don't think we've done bad, 2 years and going strong,
I never think about what i could of had, cause it don't get no better than this
I never thought id meet a girl at 30000 feet, It didn't seem that likely to me,
But life can often surprise you, its just something to get used to, Im happy it surprised me with you.
- Weight Of The World -
If it were up to me our life would be simple and trouble free,
Instead we are constantly plagued by others who need and look to your good nature to feed.
'Cause youve got the weight of the world perched upon your head,
Time after time you concern yourself with things better left unsaid.
Cant you see the wood from the trees or the love i bring to your shore,
Theres no need to feel guilty for such things a duty to all who knock at your door.
- Fortunes Fool -
Why is it so hard fro you to trust in my heart,
To find it you need only look to my sleeve,
I offer it and in return ask only to be.
The exception to the rule, don't wanna be fortunes fool,
Don't wanna be fortunes fool but the exception to your rule.
Cant you see I'm crazy when you're with me,
Time will show directions we can take,
The power is only yours to make.
Left of the middle, wont take part in the riddle no more,
My hearts on the line, wont you show me what I'm doing it for.
