Something to Live For

I'm looking for something to live for / I'm tired of chasing these dead end roads to the ground / Been hearing that there is something more / Beyond this mountain of broken dreams that I've found / I'm looking for a love I could die for / My heart is calloused from trying time after time / My bones have grown numb to the core / Screaming for something, something they can feel / All I know is the things that I can see / Leave me with a taste for something more / But all I want is something to believe / Can someone, somewhere give me something to live for / I'm looking for something to run towards / My soul is waiting for a chance to break free / My legs are stuck here to the floor / Waiting on something, something that is real / All I know is the things that I can see / Leave me with a taste for something more / But all I want is something to believe / Can someone, somewhere give me something to live for / Tell me now, is there a way? Somewhere you can show me? / Tell me now because I won't go / Until I find something to live for / Tell me now, take me to someone who can save me / Because I can't find the way, there's got to be something more / All I know is the things that I can see / Leave me with a taste for something more / But all I want is something to believe / Can someone, somewhere give me something to live for

Evaporate

You took my hand and led me away / I fell for every line, I fell for everything / I knew the pain that you would bring / It didn't phase me / Now, I'm broken beyond repair / Yesterday I came knocking, but you weren't there / You said you'd always be right here / You said you loved me, you loved me / Lie to me one more time, tell me that you'll stay / Like a thief, you came in the night, and stole my heart away / My dusty mouth is cracked and dry, but I'm addicted to your taste / I press my lips to take a drink, but you evaporate / Each taste of you never satisfied / So I ran lover to lover to lover, now there's no one to call mine / Your promises, they left me blind / Your words were empty, so empty / Lie to me one more time, tell me that you'll stay / Like a thief, you came in the night, and stole my heart away / My dusty mouth is cracked and dry, but I'm addicted to your taste / I press my lips to take a drink, but you evaporate / Everything I ever had / I gave it to you, but you gave me nothing back / Lie to me one more time, tell me that you'll stay / Like a thief, you came in the night, and stole my heart away / My dusty mouth is cracked and dry, but I'm addicted to your taste / I press my lips to take a drink, but you evaporate

Made to Love

I have come to find that home is a state of mind / I was in disbelief, then I looked into your eyes / I felt so alive / You opened up my heart, invaded all I am / You came right through, pulled my head out of the sand / You are home to me / If you broke me down, looked inside to see all the pieces / You'll find every part of me is yours to have and hold / So look around, in between the cracks and the creases / I was made to love, made to love you so / You are a work of art, beauty plain to see / You can have me if you want all this debris / You are home to me / If you broke me down, looked inside to see all the pieces / You'll find every part of me is yours to have and hold / So look around, in between the cracks and the creases / I was made to love, made to love you so

Grace Knows No Bounds

I've been waiting on the corner / Moisture collecting on my frozen breath / With my forgetfulness to the test / You are all I see / I can't wait for the summer / To watch the sunlight bounce of your dress / Try as hard as I can, but I just can't guess / What you would want with me / These arms weren't made to fly / But whenever you're around / I feel like floating ten feet off the ground / After all this time, well there's two things that I've found / Love won't fail / And grace knows no bounds / All that I can offer / Are the holes in the soles of these busted leather boots / They've worn themselves to the bone just trying to take their root / This clock keeps ticking slower / With every single second that goes by / With every single reason that I find / To walk with you / These arms weren't made to fly / But whenever you're around / I feel like floating ten feet off the ground / After all this time, well there's two things that I've found / Love won't fail / And grace knows no bounds

Henry

In sixty three years, Henry's seen more than his fair share / People, they come and go, but one thing stays the same / The world's still cold / But Henry believes, and he just won't give up on this / Love, covered up / Underneath all the thorns and the brush / Hope's enough til the flood / Has washed them away and all that remains is this love / People asked Henry how he could claim so boldly / He said it's as simple as the woman standing in front of me / The beauty she holds / It makes me believe, and I just can't give up on this / Love, covered up / Underneath all the thorns and the brush / Hope's enough til the flood / Has washed them away and all that remains is this love / It's hard to see past the trees / When your eyes can't believe / But Henry, his spirit won't break / Stormy seas, desert heat / Up above, or beneath / Nothing can stand up to / Love, it's a flood / Ripping right through all the thorns and the brush / Oh this love, rising up / Will wash them away til all that remains is this love

King of Ashes

Here I go again / With the fruit clutched in my hand / Or what is left of it / A taste that once came so sweet / Left bitter on my tongue / I can't get rid of it / From dust to dust / I've made my throne on this pile of ashes / And I'm far too weak to leave what I know / Stay back from me / My depravity is getting out of hand / I am the king of ashes / Stay back from me / My depravity is more than I can stand / And I call myself a man / I am the king of ashes / I'm standing in the wind / Over castles made of sand / Or what is left of them / I pass the blame again / But I know mine is the only hand / Now there's nothing left / I know I say I'm keeping my head above the water / But I know I'm sinking like a stone / Stay back from me / My depravity is getting out of hand / I am the king of ashes / Stay back from me / My depravity is more than I can stand / And I call myself a man / All I had is gone / And all I know is wrong / If I tell you I'm alive / I'm lying all along / Don't believe me / Stay back from me / Stay back from me / My depravity is getting out of hand / I am the king of ashes / Stay back from me / My depravity is more than I can stand / And I call myself a man

Wait and See

When the walls come down around you / A locked door, a missing key / When sorrow surrounds you / You can stand up under me / Come to me, find relief / I'll be with you until the end of time / Trust, believe / You know I'll never leave your side / Just wait and see / When love's wrapped up in shadows / When shackles bind you by your feet / There's hope for tomorrow / Those walls will crumble in defeat / Come to me, find relief / I'll be with you until the end of time / Trust, believe / You know I'll never leave your side / Just wait and see / My beloved / When waves are crashing all around / When the pain hits you like a hurricane / I won't let you drown / If your heart's been torn / And life has brought you to your knees / There's a tree where peace was born / Now it lives to set you free / Come to me, find relief / I'll be with you until the end of time / Trust, believe / You know I'll never leave your side / Just wait and see

Gravity

The freeway, it stretches out before me / I swear I've got a million miles to go / Thought that you might be there waiting for me / So I turned the car around, and I'm headed home / I don't know what made me want to run / I don't know that much at all, this much is true / But as surely as the setting of the sun / There's always something that pulls me back to you / Gravity, oh gravity / I try to get away from you / Gravity, oh gravity / It's that gravity that pulls my heart to you / You know I've always found you rather lovely / But my flesh and bones and soul just won't agree / But after these excursions up above me / I know this gravity has got me where I want to be / Gravity, oh gravity / I try to get away from you / Gravity, oh sweet gravity / It's that gravity that pulls my heart to you / When the rain starts beating on the ground / And thunder cries out for more / The sky won't settle down / I will not search for shelter / For you're where my hope is found / Gravity, oh gravity / I try to get away from you / Gravity, oh sweet gravity / It's that gravity that pulls my heart to you / It's that gravity, and I'm right back here with you

Words Fall Through

She's got a hold on the night / She's carefree and dancing under the streetlight / I had never seen grace like I did in her face / Captured in a smile / She's been given a light / That points to the heavens / Up through the dark night / In a world that's so tired / She knows a hope that's greater than gold / And I try to hide how my tongue gets tied / At the very sight of her / What am I to do / When words, they fall right through / I'll just sing a melody / Pray that she'll hear me / She is a princess who hides her heart in a castle / For she is the bride / Of a King that loves her / Stronger than the ocean's tide / He has dressed her in white / Washed her with water that purifies / She's an example to the world of a captive / That's been set free / And I try to hide how my tongue gets tied / At the very sight of her / What am I to do / When words, they fall right through / I'll just sing a melody / Pray that she hears me

Wilderness

Oh where, where is this you've led me / My face is cold, my eyes are blind, my legs are heavy / Teach my eyes to see / And flesh to believe / That you are all I need / I'll follow the river that flows between the trees / I chase down the distance between you and me / I just want to find you / More than I want to see another day / In this wilderness / Strip it all away, all but you / Melt this heart of stone / Let it bleed right through / Just to feel you breathe / I will throw my face at your feet / You are all I need / I'll follow the river that flows between the trees / I chase down the distance between you and me / I just want to find you / More than I want to see another day / In this wilderness / I've got miles to travel through / But I'm too weak to follow you across / This foreign land / Speak softly, search and find / A way to beat this heart of mine / For I am only a man / My courage, at best is faint / I'm only good at running away / But I hear you call my name / I am weak, I am wrong / But you cover me with a love that's strong / I'll never be the same / I'll follow the river that flows between the trees / I chase down the distance between you and me / I just want to find you / More than I want to see another day / In this wilderness
