Lyrics

The Truth Is

Heaven knows a broken heart will age you
Wasting time thinkin’ ‘bout who betrayed you
In time you’ll come to know that shit don’t matter
You’ll understand it’s nothin’ more than chatter in your head
Draggin’ bodies too long dead – weighing you down
So, get out of your way, if you’ve got nothin’ left to say
Keep movin’ on now

If your truth is that you’re so messed up you’re nothin’ more than pieces
And you don’t know just where to go so you go where the release is
I’m tellin’ you, my wayward friend, it’s nothin’ more than sorrow
The truth is that this, too, shall pass – keep pushing for tomorrow

When I was young, I feared far too much
And I shrank back from that freeing, healing touch
From those who tried to show me life beyond me
But I was stuck in time just like a zombie – in my head
Draggin’ bodies too long dead – weighing me down
But then I got out of my way, I said all I had to say
I’m moving’ on now
Yes, I got out of my way, I said all I had to say, this is my song now

If your truth is that you’re so messed up you’re nothin’ more than pieces
And you don’t know just where to go so you go where the release is
I’m tellin’ you, my wayward friend, it’s nothin’ more than sorrow
The truth is that this, too, shall pass – keep pushing for tomorrow

Keep lookin’ past what holds you back
You’re not your past, so don’t look back
Keep lookin’ past what holds you back
You’re not your past, so don’t look back

Ghost Story

My pen to paper tells me that I’m still alive
I hear you whisper now: “Get up. Go for a drive.”
“To clear your head. It’s me who’s dead.
“Come back when we can jibe.
“I’ll be right here next to your ear.
“Come back when you can get my story right.”

I sit here at my table with wine and candle-light
The words – they flow much better – in shades of the night
You say, “Don’t you worry, you know this story
“I’ll see you through the end…
“Just listen close to your ‘made up’ ghost
“I’ll be your friend if you can get my story right.”

Now when I’m all alone, I feel him at my side
He’s got so much to say, sometimes he makes me cry
The more I hear, the less I know but, I’m learnin’ piece by piece
Time will tell if this applies to me, we’ll just have to see
If I can get his story right

We make this life our own, nobody else to blame
And if it feels like hell, well, did we fan the flames?
So while I’m here, I’ll face the fears that keep me up at night
Bartender keep fillin’ my glass up
‘Cause if I screw this up then who will get my story right?

Who will get my story right?

Through the Dark

Is there love on your mind tonight?
Can you see it in the headlights?
Does it move slowly ‘round from the back seat?
To touch your hair and brush your neck, oh tell me—
Does it feel like me?

Can you hold love’s hand without retreat?
Riding solo, seeking solace in love’s defeat
And when you open up your door, will love warm you like before?
When you would drive home through the dark…
To get to me

I think of you way out there—are you thinking of me?
I think of those I’ve hated because they wouldn’t love me
Up in this road of bitterness, it’s easy to get caught
Obsessing ‘cause they didn’t like the truth of what I was bringing
But you heard me singing

Can you hold love’s hand without retreat?
Riding solo, seeking solace in love’s defeat
And when you open up your door, will love warm you like before?
When you would drive home through the dark…
When you would drive home through the dark…
To get to me

Do I need to leave this place? What am I missing?
If I close the miles would you open up your kissing?
Besides the dreams, besides your hand to hold without retreat
Would you still drive home through the dark…
Would you still drive home through the dark…
‘Cause I would drive home through the dark…
To get to you

I’m driving through the dark

The Night You Touched My Hand

It only seemed like an ordinary night
But don’t they all when you’ve got nothing special in your sight?
And all at once the Universe began to sway
And I lost my balance
And everything changed

The night you touched my hand
And you didn’t let go
You touched my hand
And now I know

I had it thought out that I was on my own
The past had taught me it was better that way—that’s what I was shown
But you didn’t know that, so you didn’t care
You just walked right in through the open door
On the clear winter air

The night you touched my hand
And you didn’t let go
You touched my hand
And it was then I’d know

I know you… Better than I know myself most days
You knew me… When you saw behind my hidden ways

The night you touched my hand
And I didn’t let go
The night you touched my hand
And now we know

You see only me
I see only you
We were meant to be
How was I possible before you?

Time stands still for me when I’m with you
Say you’ll still be mine should the moon
Fall from the velvet sky to touch your face
No other star above can eclipse your grace
Cause everything changed…

The night you touched my hand
And I didn’t let go
The night you touched my hand
And now I know

Tonight

In a room with all your friends
It only feels like you and me
I try not to stare too long
But, I’m your fool you see

You think it, I feel it – don’t care what I look like
I’m so dizzy and I could fall hard
Because I’m so distracted by your light
Tonight

Forget the rain, forget the cold
My heart is warm inside
You smile at me as we take the streets
Feels like we’re taking flight

I’m not too tired to be inspired
Not thinkin’ ‘bout the clock
You’re my rock, won’t put up a fight because
I’m so powerless in your light
Tonight

The morning breaks from up above
So we’ll just run and hide
From the sun accusing us of too much love
But, we know he’s just jealous of
Our light tonight

Another week falls at our feet
So we’ll face it with a sigh
It won’t be long ‘til I’m with you
And we’ll be getting high

On a love that burns so bright
It brings me to my knees
The world can try to crowd me out but,
You’re the one I’m gonna see
Tonight
