Sailing On

Hello my name is no one and I’ve lost my way, I close my eyes and pray that I can dream again, They sent me out in a world that wasn’t fair, Where people hurt the ones they love because they’re scared, Oh we keep sailing on, we keep sailing on, With the wind at our backs we always keep moving on, And I might be tired but the lights keep guiding me home, Oh we keep sailing on, we keep sailing on, I can’t remember what I’m fighting for, It faded like my name I wrote upon the shore, I swear to you I’d return with better days, If you promise me the sun is right behind the haze, Oh, We keep sailing on we keep sailing on, With the wind at our backs we always keep moving on, And I might be tired but the lights keep guiding me home, Oh we keep sailing on, we keep sailing on, Life is but a dream,  Life is but a dream, Life is but a dream, DREAM WITH ME, Oh we keep sailing on, we keep sailing on, With the wind at our backs we always keep moving on, And I might be tired but the lights keep guiding me home, Oh we keep sailing on, we keep sailing on, Hello my name is no one and I’ve lost my way, I close my eyes and pray that I can dream again

World I Used To Know

Set the scene and close the door, The lights go down and we don’t make a sound, And yeah we want so much more , But nights like this are perfect for now, Never gonna make it stop you cant make it stop, Never gonna make it stop you cant make it stop, This is the town I used to know, This is the school we used to own, This is the wind that used to blow, This is the world I used to know, Laying underneath the bed, Your ceiling never felt so far away, Tomorrow when we say goodbye, We’ll promise that we’ll always stay the same, But were never gonna make it stop you cant make it stop, Never gonna make it stop you cant make it stop, This is the town I used to know, This is the school we used to own, This is the wind that used to blow, This is the world I used to know, We wished for lots of things when we were 17, We’re waiting for it now, waiting for it now, I’ve got a million dreams, There is a life I see, I’m waiting for it now, waiting for it now, We wished for lots of things when we were 17, We’re waiting for it now waiting for it now, This is school we used to own, This is the school we used to own, This is the world we used to know, This is the world we all outgrow

We Were Kings

I keep a photograph of you up on my wall, The beach in winter on the island says it all, Oh, those days were gold, Oh, but we didn’t know, We stole your fathers car, you didn't know how to drive, Touch down on the edge of town, we made it out alive, Oh, the setting sun, Oh, I knew you were the one for me, And we sang a song, For all our dreams, We were young and lost, When we were kings, I will never regret the scars we earned, How could you forget we ruled the world, Four in the morning and I'm staring at the stars, The only lighst connecting me to where you are, Oh, where have you gone, Oh, I knew you were the one for me, And we sang a song for all our dreams, We were young and lost, When we were kings, I will never regret the scars we earned, How could you forget we ruled the world, And we danced all night, Holding on for our lives, And I bled out the time, Since you walked away, Why’d you walk away, Remember when we were kings, And we sang a song, For all our dreams, We were young and lost, When we were kings, I will never regret the scars we earned, How could you forget we ruled the world

I Will Survive

Lights went out, All around, The city sleeps without a sound, Found my way to higher ground, Taking it on to the other side, We got style, Yeah we got faith, And I believe there will be better days, We might die but never fade, Taking it on to the other side, I will survive, And we get out of this alive, We’re gonna light up the night, Singin’ we’re keepin’ on, we’re keepin’ on, I was high, In a daze, Sold my soul for lemonade, Kingdom come and set me free, I was blind but now I see, I will survive, And we get out of this alive, We’re gonna light up the night, Singin’ we’re keepin’ on, we’re keepin’, I will survive, And when we get out of this alive, We're gonna light up the night, Singin' we're keepin' on, We're keepin' on, Oh, Keepin' on,  Keepin' on, Singin' oh, Keepin' on, Keepin' on, I was lost in the atmostphere, The hardest part is getting past the fear, So take my hand we're getting out of here, We're moving on to the otherside, I will survive, And when we get out of this alive, We're gonna run down the mountain, yeah, We're keepin' on, Keep keepin' on

Gone To Heaven

I can’t explain it but I like the rain, I don’t know why but I feel no pain, It’s been a while since I trust someone, It makes me feel like you’re the only one, The only one, ‘Cause when I look into your eyes, This world has gone to heaven, gone to heaven, I can't explain it but I don’t belong, I don’t know why but I like sad songs, It's been a while since I loved someone, It makes me feel like you’re the only one, My only one, ‘Cause when I look into your eyes, This world has gone to heaven, gone to heaven

Where The Island Ends

Three months of summer coming, We got nothing but time, I want to feel the sun and forget my name for a little while, I know a place where we can leave it all behind, I want to go, Yeah, I want to go, Meet me where the island ends, Stop the world so we can spin, Dizzy we fall but it’s worth the skin, To be the one you want, Gonna cut a hole in the fence, I’m gonna see you on the other side, I want to smell the smoke on my clothes, In the morning from the bonfire, Yeah, I know a place where we can get so much higher, I want to go, Yeah, I want to go, So, meet me where the island ends, Stop the world so we can spin, Dizzy we fall but it’s worth the skin, To be the one you want, We turn the headlights out to catch a shooting star, We scream into the sky to tell them who we are, And if it all came down right now yeah I wouldn’t mind, Cause I got love, we got love, Meet me where the island ends, Stop the world so we can spin, Dizzy we fall but it’s worth the skin, To be the one you want

Spaceman Fugitive

Shell shock, bombs drop, This city’s down on its knees, Tan wasteland, They’re pumping out beauty queens, Hands are shaking, White skies, rivers rise, Filling refugee camps, The names rogue waves washed away in the sand, Hands are shaking, My heart’s racing, Hey message to receiver, I'm taking it higher, M.I.A. like a spaceman fugitive, I’m not coming down, Backseat, body heat, Sneaking out of the dance, The next Gen-X, Are hoping they got a chance, Sweat I’m tasting, My hearts racing, Hey message to receiver, I'm taking it higher, M.I.A. like a spaceman fugitive, I’m not coming down, I’m breaking up, radio silence, lights go out and all is quiet, but in my head there’s a screaming anthem, there’s gotta be more worth fighting for, Hey message to receiver, I'm taking it higher, M.I.A. like a spaceman fugitive, I’m not coming down, like a spaceman fugitive

Impossible

And you called me on the phone to say there’s nothing to talk about, I wish you’d stop your crying long enough just to hear me out, Oh we are, we are, just what we are, I’m not proud of all the things I’ve been putting you through, But when I shot up at the sky I didn’t know it’d fall down on you, I take it all back, I take it all back, I didn’t mean to make you suffer, I didn’t mean to make you cry, I just want to put this back together, This isn’t impossible, This isn’t impossible, I know this life we’re dealing with is getting under your skin, If we can make it through the winter we can fall in love again, Oh we are, we are, just what we are, And oh, these days it's just to easy to be calling it quits, But a life without you would be too hard to find happiness in, Take it all back, Take it all back, I didn’t mean to make you suffer, I didn’t mean to make you cry, I just want to put this back together, This isn’t impossible, This isn’t impossible, I walk the city streets and its really freaking me out, Cause every corner is a memory that one day I'll write you about, You cut my wings and left me here all alone, And I’m sorry I’m a little bit angel, And a little bit animal, And you called me on the phone to say there’s nothing to talk about, I wish you’d stop your crying long enough just to hear me out, Oh we are, we are, just what we are, I didn’t mean to make you suffer, I didn’t mean to make you cry, I just want to put this back together, This isn’t impossible

Fuck'n Up

Snuck you out of your bedroom window almost every night, We’d park out front and watch the cars fly by, Backseat lovers in a hurricane, never wanted to go home, Back by 5 so your parents would never know, Oh, here’s to growing up and always fucking up, Oh, here’s to growing up and always fucking up, You let me sleep on your couch that winter at your college dorm, When I didn’t have the strength to move back home, Your father offered me a job that summer at the family store, “son what are you wasting your life for?”, Oh, here’s to growing up and always fucking up, Oh, here’s to growing up and always fucking up, Called you from so many hotel lobbies, always out on the road, Oh, how all the years just come and go, We had to sell the car last fall, so you never made it to the shows, Another reason why we cried when we heard my song on the radio, Here’s to growing up and always fucking up

My Life With You

When I was a kid I’d travel, To all the different places inside my head, But nothing compares to my life with you, I could build a million castles, I could wish upon all the lucky stars, But nothing compares to my life with you, The street lamp is out, It's getting cold, I told you I don’t want my coat, I’m better off, In your arms, I can’t believe we went so far, That night, Underneath the burning stars, We were so light, When I was a kid I’d travel, To all the different places inside my head, But nothing compares to my life with you, I could build a million castles, I could wish upon all the lucky stars, But nothing compares to my life with you, It’s getting late, Your sister is calling, But we pretend our phones are off, Yeah I can’t stop, The moving clock, I never wanted us to part, That night, Dancing on your fathers car, We were so high, When I was a kid I’d travel, To all the different places inside my head, But nothing compares to my life with you, I could build a million castles, I could wish upon all the lucky stars, But nothing compares to my life with you

Bullet

This is the first time I could see living here, Too many sleepless nights without you, And as the wind is speaking for the trees, I hear you can’t move on without me, And I’m not everything I want to be, This place is just so hard without you, I’ll find you when we both are kids again, For you I’ll always take the bullet, For you I’ll always take the bullet, For you I’ll never turn in anger, And even if this leaves you alone, For you I’ll always take the bullet, I wish our life was like a video game, Then I can always start it over, We gotta hold on to this life we made, So I can watch you growing older, For you I’ll always take the bullet, For you I’ll never turn in anger, And even if this leaves you alone, For you I’ll always take the bullet
