Lyrics

18th Floor (Live at Earthworks)

On his arm she looks so pretty and free
The perfect outline of a lady she was raised to be
Prada-laced, a string of pearls, eloquent words, a heartbreak’s cure

Bouncing inside a perfect circle
On the 18th floor
Down here all her sisters cry
Honey get your own life

Down here we’re stompin’ to the bass drum’s beat
Don’t give up
The choir sings
You won’t find love in worldly things
The bottom’s top and up is down
Learn to love and sing out loud
The 18th floor’s an illusion

On her own she has no victory and too much time
Roaming the alley every evening
Dreaming of paradise
Her baby’s gone
She has no one
She lost her song
Where did she go wrong?
Her deflated, tortured circle wasn’t strong enough
Down here every night she cries
Bring me back to life!

Down here we’re stompin’ to the bass drum’s beat
Don’t give up
The choir sings
You won’t find love in worldly things
The bottom’s top and up is down
Learn to love and sing out loud
The 18th floor’s an illusion
Down here we’re stompin’ to the bass drum’s beat
Don’t give up
The choir sings
You won’t find love in worldly things
The bottom’s top and up is down
Learn to love and sing out loud
The 18th floor’s an illusion

Be

Be who you wanna be
There's no one like you youre important baby
Say what you wanna say
Only truth speaks anyway
Do what you wanna do
You only live this life once
Make it heaven on earth
Be brave
It'll be be be ok

You don't have to crawl on your knees
Through the pouring rain
You can create your own light
No one can take away
You're as powerful as you think
You are in control
If you think you owe them anything
You're just selling your soul

Be who you wanna be
There's no one like you youre important baby
Say what you wanna say
Only truth speaks anyway
Do what you wanna do
You only live this life once
Make it heaven on earth
Be brave
It'll be be be ok

You dont have to be consumed
With the day to day
Imagine the life that you want
Claim your path and change it
You have every answer
Seek that still small voice inside
You're a reflection
Of the god you search for in the sky

Be who you wanna be
There's no one like you youre important baby
Say what you wanna say
Only truth speaks anyway
Do what you wanna do
You only live this life once
Make it heaven on earth
Be brave
It'll be be be ok

Beautiful

You are beautiful
You are powerful
You can make it

What are you doing with your power?

You are the light
Shine your light all around us

What are you doing with your power?
What are you doing with your light?

Reach out and touch somebody
You are the light!
You are the light
The light is all around us
Reach out and touch somebody
You are the light
The light is all around us
Shine down on somebody, tonight
Shine your light
You are beautiful
You are powerful
We are powerful together
Together!
Together!

You are beautiful
You are powerful
You can make it

Daisies

I didn’t notice as you slipped away
With my heart, my heart it wasn’t yours
I can’t believe my life will be okay
When my open chest holds everything you showed me

Why do we bow to whisperers and liars
Long dead the day when sanity was ours
They pull us up to shove us six feet down
Fueled by fear we give the king his crown
We give the king his crown
We give the king his crown

Daisies and broken wings are all around me
I hear flightless birds sing
I can’t do this
I can’t take it
I can’t move on
I won’t make it
Falling
Wake me from this bad, bad dream

You kill with all you take and scheme
Our babies’ dying in the streets
We pray for change with no relief
Your buildings rise and our hearts sing
We’re lions in captivity
Nowhere to run
We’re just wondering
So we make due while the giants eat
We just can’t get ahead

Daisies and broken wings are all around me
I hear flightless birds sing
I can’t do this
I can’t take it
I can’t move on
I won’t make it
Falling
Wake me from this bad, bad dream

Dig Deep

Walk out on the water
The waves aren’t as high as you think
Walk out on the water
If you should fall down
Swim to me
Walk out on the water
The waves aren’t as high as you think
Walk out on the water If you should fall down
Swim to me

I can’t keep you on my heart forever
I can’t keep you from falling apart
I can’t keep you from sinking alone
Sinking alone
Falling in too deep
Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper
Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper

Walk out on the water
The waves aren’t as high as you think
Walk out on the water
If you should fall down
Swim to me
Walk out on the water
The waves aren’t as high as you think
Walk out on the water
If you should fall down
Swim to me

I can’t keep you on my heart forever
I can’t keep you from falling apart
I can’t keep you from sinking alone
Sinking alone
Falling in too deep

Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper
Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper

If you cannot step out on your own by now
I’m gonna shove you in or
They’re gonna pull you in
If you cannot step out on your own by now
I’m gonna shove you in or
They’re gonna pull you in
Work a little healing like Jesus did
Work a little magic with your own hands
If you’ve got hands and feet
What are you using?
What are you using?

Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper
Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper
Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper
Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper

Walk out on the water Walk out on the water Don’t be afraid now You’re not alone now If you take one step I’ll take two There ain’t no limit to what our love can do Walk out Walk out Walk out Walk out Walk out on the water

Dreams

I only see you in my dreams
In this bed we are wild and free
If my dreams could be reality
We would stay like this
Just you and me
I only see you in my dreams

I only see you in my dreams
Our souls collide as you fade into me
If my dreams manifest destiny
The stars align and we are meant to be

Why do I only see you when the night falls
I fall for you
Drift off with you
Sweet dreams under the moon.
I feel you safe here in my arms
Til the break of dawn
I wake up alone

I only see you in my dreams

I only see you in my dreams
When I wake up you aren't here with me
If my dreams are only make believe
I want to sleep for all eternity

I only see you in my dreams
Your are the light, my love, leading me
If my dreams are where you will be
I'm only living when I'm fast alseep

Why do I only see you when the night falls
I fall for you
Drift off with you
Sweet dreams under the moon
I feel you safe here in my arms
'Til the break of dawn
I wake up alone.

I only see you in my dreams
I only see you in my dreams

I took a piece of you out of the dream
You looked into my eyes now I can see
Now I search for my true love in the streets
Unrequited love in perfect harmony
Imaginary lover trapped inside of me

I only see you in my dreams
I only see you in my dreams
I only see you in my dreams

End of the Line

The sun rises
It’s over now
It’s a joke
Here I stand in the rain
My heart beats but won’t make a sound
What’s the point?
Every path ends this way
So I turn up the music and I drown it out
As the gun fire and screams fill my ears
I’ve cowered too long behind the front lines
1-2-3 the bomb ticks
I’m not here

It’s over now
Over now
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s over now
Over now
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line

Come drain the song from my famished mouth
As I lie in the wet, crimson sand
My cries for help are the least of these
Aimless hearts
Broken bones, bleeding hands
So I sing hallelujah
The end is near
Raise us up from the ash and decay
Ground zero blackens our hazy eyes
They’ve no use, no direction, no say

It’s over now
Over now
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s over now
Over now
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s over now
Over now
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s over now
Over now
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line

Feel It

I feel you here under my skin
You will always stay
I feel you try everytime I push you away
I feel your lies, your alibis coursing through my veins
I feel your fire down in my bones
I can't live this way
The way you touch me
The way you love me
The way you feed off of my pain

I feel it
Can you feel it?
I feel it
Can you feel it?
I feel it
Can you feel it?
I feel it
Can you feel it?

I feel you here under my skin
You will always stay
I feel you try everytime I push you away
I feel your lies, your alibis coursing through my veins
I feel your fire down in my bones
I can't live this way
The way you touch me
The way you love me
The way you feed off of my pain

I feel it
Can you feel it?
I feel it
Can you feel it?
I feel it
Can you feel it?
I feel it
Can you feel it?

I feel it
Can you feel it?
I feel it
Can you feel it?
I feel it
Can you feel it?
I feel it
Can you feel it?

Goodbye

I woke up to you this morning
Is it too early to get way?
To fade into your bitter poison
A taste of love in my sloppy grace
It’s in my hands now to pour you over
Without a trace of your wicked ways
I could live alone now resurrected from the mire
Beautifully changed

But I love you
I miss you
I’ve said it a thousand times, I do
Why don’t you?
I love you
I miss you
I miss you
Goodbye

I keep a close eye on you always
I see when your love turns you away
You lost your fire and independence
emerged in her river of hate
I can’t live without you here in my arms
Wake up in my amazing grace
Reach for me in the bottomless sea
Cast your cares on me and I’ll forgive

I love you
I miss you again

I love you I miss you again
I’ve said it a thousand times
I know you love me too
I’ve prayed a thousand nights
That I would get to you
I’ve said it a thousand times
I know you love me too
I’ve prayed a thousand nights
That I would get to you
How do I get to you?
How do I get to you?
How do I get to you?
I’ve prayed a thousand times that I would get to you

It Never Snows in Cincinnati (When I Want It To)

It never snows in Cincinnati
When I want it to
Told you I’d be home for a white Christmas
Take the Roebling Bridge straight to you
I miss you hear on the West Coast
Where the air is hot
But my heart is cold
Will it snow in the Queen City
If I come back home?

It never snows in Cincinnati
When I want it to

Last year you sent me Skyline Chili
‘Twas my Yule Tide Feast
But couldn’t eat
I saw the Bengals on my TV
Wondered if you were also watching

It never snows in Cincinnati
When I want it to

Oh how I miss Christmas time in Cincy
Over the Rhine never looked so good to me
Oh how I miss that little city
Ice skating of Fountain Square
As they light the giant tree

It never snows in Cincinnati
It never snows for me
It never snows in Cincinnati
When I want it to

Lives for a Season

We were in each others lives for a season
That doesn't make it any less
You were my stepping stones
Along the wild road
You held my hand when I panicked

We were in each others lives for a reason
Even though we didnt last
There is no higher road
Than the one we walk alone
It all leads to the same end

There would be no me if i had not met you
But you followed your heart
I marrried the moon

We were in each others lives for a season
Then we veered from the same path
Another lover caught your trail
Now she is your ride or die
You didn't need my help

We were in each others lives for a reason
Until the autumn leaves all fell
Then came the winter storm
A new light to keep me warm
You didn't wish me well

There would be no me if i had not met you
But you followed your heart
I marrried the moon

All the lost and lonely souls
We meet along this winding road need saving
I know you chose to walk alone
Afraid that I would take your heart and break it

Lovers on the Run

The rocks cry out no hiding place
You can’t be lovers here today
I know they’re watching every move we make
Our vibrations give it away

I feel free when I’m with you
I feel free when I’m with you
The rocks cry out no hiding place
You can’t be lovers here today

I feel free when I’m with you
I feel free when I’m with you
Nobody knows the thing we do
I feel free when I’m with you

Let’s run away
Let’s run away
Let’s run away
Run away

Dry bones in the valley Wake up Wake up Wake up Wake up Dry bones in the valley Wake up Wake up Wake up Wake up

I feel free when I’m with you
I feel free when I’m with you
I’d climb a mountain just to get to you
I feel free when I’m with you

Let’s run away
Let’s run away
Let’s run away
Run away

The kingdoms say they’ll cut us out
If we keep messing around
But I don’t care about bad blood
We’ll just be lovers on the run

I feel alive when I’m with you
I feel the fire here with you
I feel revival here with you
I feel free when I’m with you

Let’s run away
Let’s run away
Let’s run away
Run away

Memories

Black Birds fill the sky
Casting shadows or redemption
Sinking low and soaring high
As I embrace my own inventions

As I wander down the busy streets
The buildings reflecting you and me
When I think about it my heart sinks
Wrecking my weary soul with memories
Oh memories

As I regret I sit alone tonight
Behind an old pew, searching for some light
Tear me down fill me up
Help me unwind
Only you can hear the memory

As I wander down the busy street
The buildings reflecting you and me
When I think about it my heart sinks
Wrecking my weary soul with memories

As I wander down the busy streets
The buildings reflecting you and me
When i think about it my heart sinks
Wrecking my weary soul with memories
Oh memories

When I think about you
When I think about you

One Heart

Standing alone we may never sing again
Standing alone we may never win
Hand in hand we march the battle field together
We are millions
We are the revolution

We are the children of one heart
Beating to the same drum
We are the children of one love
Together we are strong

Standing as one we move oceans and mountains
Standing as one we begin again
Hand in hand we wade into the troubled waters
We are the future
We are the sons and daughters

Since You've Gone

I can’t stop crying
Feels like I’m dying
Since you’ve gone
Since you’ve gone

Didn’t need a bag when you were leaving
I guess you packed your treasures up above
I smell you everytime I breathe in
The things the left aren’t enough

I can’t stop crying
Feels like I’m dying
Since you’ve gone
Since you’ve gone
I can’t stop crying
Feels like I’m dying
Since you’ve gone
Since you’ve gone

Didn’t mean to leave that space between us
Now everyday I reach out for your arms
I can’t help wishing you could hold me
Since I can’t all I do is mourn

I can’t stop crying
Feels like I’m dying
Since you’ve gone
Since you’ve gone
I can’t stop crying
Feels like I’m dying
Since you’ve gone
Since you’ve gone

Hurts too much just to miss you
Gotta see you again
Night falls
Tears start rolling
No, baby, this can’t be the end!

I can’t stop crying
Feels like I’m dying
Since you’ve gone
Since you’ve gone
I can’t stop crying
Feels like I’m dying
Since you’ve gone
Since you’ve gone

Slow Down

I made some time to take my time
No destination in my mind
Moving down the line
I'm just in it for the ride

I found a way to live my life
Shut out the chaos and unwind
Moving with the tide
I dont even have to try

Slow down Take it slow now Slow down Take it slow now

Your life goes by faster everytime you run
You can spend this moment with the one you love
Your destination is right here right now
What are you runnin towards
Baby just slow down

I found a way to see the light
To be present all the time
I listen when the stars align
Married to the moon I'm always high

I found a melody that's mine
A rhythm that keeps my heart in time
The universe is in our eyes
The power of god down deep inside all of us

Slow down
Take it slow now
Slow down
Take it slow now

Slow down
Take it slow now
Slow down
Take it slow now

Your life goes by faster everytime you run
You can spend this moment with the one you love
Your destination is right here right now
What are you runnin towards
Baby just slow down

Your destination is right here
Your destination is right here
Right now
Right now
Right now
Right now
Right now
Right now

Slow down

Sometimes (You're the Best I've Never Had)

Sometimes you leave me lonely
Sometimes you leave me sad
Sometimes you sneak out before morning
With no note beside my bed

Sometimes you shine your light on me
Sometimes you have my back
Sometimes you're the only one I need
You're the best I've never had

Oooooooo

Sometimes you leave me broken
Sometimes you lead me astray
Sometimes you show your true colors
Your brightness always fades

Sometimes you shine your light on me
Sometimes you have my back
Sometimes you're the only one I need
You're the best I've never had

Sometimes it's not enough
Sometimes it gets to tough
Sometimes I want somebody new
I know he will never be you

Sometimes you shine your light on me
Sometimes you have my back
Sometimes you're the only one I need
You're the best I've never had

Step Out of the Dark

In the dark, shadows all around
Monsters seem bigger than they really are
In the dark, I know he’s hiding out
I can hear him breathing behind my door
I feel your heat, down in my bones
Shining through my window I’m not alone
Sunshine seeps through my floor boards
This house is on fire. I can’t live here anymore

Time to wake up
The sun has dried up all the rain
It’s not cloudy anymore
Time to wake up
Let’s go out and play
Step out of the dark
You can’t hide there anymore

In your light
Flowers all around
You’re there to pick me up when I fall down
In your light
My demons can’t come out
All fears disintegrate
Ashes on the ground

Time to wake up The sun has dried up all the rain
It’s not cloudy any more
Time to wake up
Let’s go out and play
Step out of the dark
You can’t hide there anymore

Step out Step out Step out of the dark

Time to wake up
The sun has dried up all the rain
It’s not cloudy anymore
Time to wake up
Let’s go out and play
Step out of the dark
You can’t hide there anymore

Time to wake up
The sun has dried up all the rain
It’s not cloudy anymore
Time to wake up
Let’s go out and play
Step out of the dark
You can’t hide there anymore

Sweet Dreamer

[spoken]
It’s OK.
Just lie down.
Be still.
Concentrate on your breathing.

Take me to that quiet place
Pull me out to open space
Dreaming is my sweet escape
I live to dream
Why must I wake?

Lost Dreamer
Sweet Dreamer
Dream on
Lost Dreamer
Sweet Dreamer
Dream on

I float atop a sea of stars
I spiral through the Universe
In this dream-reality I am free to fall
No gravity. No way to stop

Lost Dreamer
Sweet Dreamer
Dream on
Lost Dreamer
Sweet Dreamer
Dream on

Take me to a higher place
Pull me off to outer space
I’m an alien who lost her way
Inside a world of mass decay

Lost Dreamer
Sweet Dreamer
Dream on
Lost Dreamer
Sweet Dreamer
Dream on

I live to dream. My sweet escape
I live to dream. My sweet escape
I live to dream. My sweet escape
I live to dream. May never wake

[spoken]
It’s OK.
Just lie down.
Be still
Concentrate on your breathing.
Rid your mind of all worldly thoughts.
Think about the stars above.
Think about the wind.
Think about the tree in your front yard.
Think about how we are all connected.
You don’t have to worry.
You can fall, fall, fall, asleep.
It’s time to fall asleep.
It’s time to close your eyes.
It’s time to enter a new world.
You’re an alien.
The truth is in your dreams.
You can live to dream.
You live in a dream.
It’s all a dream.
You don’t have to wake up.
You can sleep forever.

The Last Time

They say love is the catalyst for everything
Love, a song that I can’t wait to sing
Love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love

They say love is a many splendored thing
Love, not a silly childish fling
Where’s the love?
No, love ain’t what you give to me
I need love, love, love, love

I’m saying, bye, for the last time
Our first time was a mistake
I need someone who can shed light on all my depressing days
I won’t miss your deadly hold on me
My poor soul turned towards the grave
I’m saying, bye, for the last time
I’m saying, bye, for the very last time

Love, love, love, love Love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love Love, love, love, love
Where’s the love?
Love, love, love
Where’s the love?
Love, love, love

I won’t miss your deadly hold on me
My poor soul turned towards the grave
I’m saying, bye, for the last time
I’m saying, bye, for the very last time

Love, love, love, love

The Morning

Your joy will come in the morning
Don’t hide away from the pain
Your sun will shine in its glory
Don’t be afraid of the rays
Your path unwinds to the ocean
Run away
Ride the wave
Your joy will come in the morning
Don’t be afraid to rule the day

It is well
It is well
With my soul
With my soul
It is well
It is well
With my soul
With my soul

Your joy will come in the morning
Just stay awake ‘til sunlight breaks
The new day brings a new story
Just keep the faith
Today’s the day
Your path unwinds to the ocean
Sink right in
Begin again
Your joy will come in the morning
Don’t be afraid to rule the day

Let the wave wash over you
Let the light wash over you
Let the love wash over you
Let the joy wash over you

Your joy will come in the morning
Your sun will shine in its glory
Just stay awake ‘til the sunlight breaks
Your joy will come in the morning
Your joy will come in the morning
Your sun will shine in its glory
Just stay awake ‘til the sunlight breaks
Your joy will come in the morning

In the morning
In the morning
In the morning
In the morning
In the morning
The morning

Your Hands

All in your hands
You can hold it
Or let it go now
You control it

Some days you will walk through the valley
There will be mountains you must climb
sometimes the journey will be lonely
But you can make it to the other side

All in your hands
You can hold it
Or let it go now
You control it
All in your hand
You can mold it
Into what you need
You speak life to it

Some days the waves crash all around you
You cant swim against the tide
The storm rolls in, no light can break through
But the sun is shining on the other side
