All The Ways Love Can Feel

I see ya face, you see my face
A thousand races into space

Baby you know, I just want to live and
Do what I can to be my best
Nevertheless, never Settle for less
Higher I go, I'm never quenched
Even though life never goes so right
Do what you feel

All the ways that
Love can rise above
I know you can heal me

All the ways that love can feel alive

The Fall

Days go by slowly
I never know wholly
I see what you owe me
You never realize
That everything changes
And everything moves
And nothing is as it
Was when you lose

The thoughts you feel
The way it's real
Completely sealed
My heart revealed, my mind is healing

And when you're gone, see my heart
Time it just rages
And it goes in stages
Feel like I'm average
The pressure's so savage
Bark away habits
But only if you're here
The love, I can feel it
The thought of you being
Closer than reason
And further than seasons
And closer than seasons

When does the summer fall?

Wait, wait, wait
Wait
Waiting for the...
Feel me for waiting so long
For taking the time to rise and destroy
I was avoiding the thing that I...
I can't feel you

Spring, winter, summer, fall
Forgive me
Spring, winter, summer, fall

Time, it just rages
Spring, winter, summer, fall
Time, it just rages
Love goes in stages
Spring, winter, summer, fall
Waiting for the fall
Love goes in stages
Waiting for the fall
Love goes in stages

III

Demons are following me
Following what we can't see
I just want to dance, baby
Move around, twirling
See you on the floor, you're back
Nobody has it like you have

Let me feel something
More than just the ordinary night
People in club, they be hatin', baby
They see you lookin' over, relatin', lady
I just wanna, hold you down
Maybe if you wanna go around town
Walk the High Line, do a thing
Maybe if you wanna swing
You gettin' mad, awfully bitter
When no one pays attention, but you know you're a winner
For me
For me
Let's do it, on count of 3
1, 2, 3!
On time

Cupid keeps targeting me
Arrows are flying, I can't see
I just want a Michelle Obama lady
To hold me down when the world's crazy
See you own the city, so bad
Nobody loves you like your dad

Let me feel something
More than just the ordinary night
People in club, they be hatin', baby
They see you lookin' over, relatin', lady
I just wanna, hold you down
Maybe we can walk around the downtown
Go to Paris, maybe France
Even Russia if you wanna dance
You gettin' mad, awfully bitter
When no one pays attention, cause you know you're a winner
For me
For me
Let's do it, on count of 3
1, 2, 3!

Oh darling
What you waiting for?
You know we've got it
Let me, let me
Let me
1, 2, 3!
1, 2, 3!
Move a little
1, 2, 3!

Lake By The Ocean

In the light of the sun
I was dazed, I was burned, I was lost
Deep in the storm of a grave
Had a bed as a coffin
You were only the one that made me fulfilled
Only the thing that made me reveal
My destiny was before us, beach of a forest
Anything ain't nothing, it's just

It's just you, just us
Nobody but love
On trust, on us, nobody now
Can we swim a lake by the ocean
We'll be one like drops in slow motion
Lake by the ocean

Oh tell me the way that is
Waves like it is the drops of colors
Why do I live inside of you baby
Want to be every part of you
It's just, it's just right, it's just left
We can be strong, we can wave, we can live oh so long
Live in a flame where we'll never burn
No one could ever, ever return
You are reason I'm on ya, reason I love ya
You're the thing I need cause it's just

It's just you, just us
Nobody but love
On trust, on us, nobody now
Can we swim a lake by the ocean
We'll be one like drops in slow motion
Lake by the ocean

All I see is just
Everything is lust
Lake by the ocean
Sweet like the motion
Love is the medicine
I can heal us
All I see is love
All I want
Is love

It's just you, us, body, love
Trust, us
(Lake by the ocean)
Can we swim a lake by the ocean
(Lake by the, by the ocean)
Drops slow motion
Lake by the ocean

Fingers Crossed

Cross your fingers, babe
Take ya time, don't stress about the minor things
If it wasn't meant to be

Maybe your love is just a big mistake
Maybe our love was just a world away
If you get the courage baby
One day, someday, probably, maybe
You'll be mine, all mine
Let me love you right, all night
All night, oh, oh

Cross your fingers, babe
I know sometimes, your love is pessimistic
Oh, baby, baby

Maybe your love is just a big mistake
Maybe your love is what you fabricated
If you get the courage, baby
Someday, maybe, probably, maybe
You'll be mine, all mine
Oh, you'll be mine, mine, mine

But you're not the kind
You have no time
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh

Cross your fingers, babe
I know sometimes, your love will only trick me
Oh, why would you let this go by?

They can tell you anything to change your mind
There's no mystery and you're not blind
Fingers crossed, you'll make the choice to make you mine
Make you mine, oh
Someday, maybe, probably baby
You can do it
Baby, you will be mine
All mine, all mine, all mine, all mine
Maybe you'll let me be your kind
Someday, maybe, probably, maybe
Maybe, someday, probably, baby
If you get the courage, lady
You, you, you

Hostage

You are the harvest
Your garden helps to feed me
I am your hostage
A simple logic
Use as you please
And I will remain ignorant and believe you
Foolish me, I can see through you

You are the object
I get lost in, all in
I'm in, fallin', high stakes
I am free
Baby

And let her stay from thee
I'm turning up
Like a rocket in the sky, we'll take it all off
To a place where pure discretion is the means
Where the universe is yours and made for you
If you want my love, I will surely go

You are the object
I get lost in, all in
I'm in, fallin'
High stakes, I am
Object I get lost in, all in
I'm in, fallin'
High stakes, I am free

If your keys were left, I would never go, yeah
Stay within the confines of your warmth
I'm free inside the cage of your heart of gold
Prison of your love, it makes me so
I'm your hostage
You are my love

1990x

Like the thunder, I can hear you whisper
If love has shown, if love was shown, I would be more brave
If I can see anything I wanna entertain
But I can't, I'd rather have you next to me
But can you see that I'm alone
There's no hesitation, I feel you so much
There's no indication that I will choose your touch

There's no song that defines it
There's not music behind it
There's no lyric to read from
There's just and the moment
Lay here closely beside me
Feel my heart as it's pounded
We will climax with reason
Cause we're grown and we own it

Inside the sky of me and lives a star
Let's ride the galaxy and find who we are

I'm hearing them saying things all the time
The word on the street is that I'm slowly losing my mind
They say that he's wasting his whole life

There's no song that defines it
There's not music behind it
There's no lyric to read from
There's just and the moment
Lay here closely beside me
Feel my heart as it's pounded
We will climax with reason
Cause we're grown and we own it

When the nights I through
The morning rays of Live I see you through
Til the morning dew, yeah, a winter afternoon
A summer night in June, whatever works for you
Time goes by, it just can't be more than my love, love

Gods

Woo, here we go

The answer is no, in spite I can't let it go
The answers don't ever make no sense
When the questions are up to you
If you want you can fly, you can float
You can walk, you can do what you want
But if the smallest seed of feeling is left in you
You will see you were wrong

With your crimes you convicted me
As you swore so convincingly
You played the game of Gods
You played the game of Gods
Oh in this game, the game
You blow off

I lay myself on the floor
Give it up, threw my hands through the door
How could I give you what you can't accept?
How can I make you make present?
All I can do is come through and be more than you are
Whip out the phone but I'm sure you'll ignore your response

As you lied so convincingly
And you swore so religiously
You played the game of Gods
You played the game of Gods
You played the games of Gods
You played the game of Gods
Oh in this game, the game
You blow off

I wanna get close
Wanna rock, wanna lie, wanna roll
Baby I'll give you all your happiness
Sometimes I feel like I'm losing it
How can I do unto you when you use everyone?
Sometimes I feel like I'm losing it
Without the truth there's no room, there's no room anymore
Sometimes I feel like I'm losing it

As you fight so judiciously
And you swore so convincingly
You played the game of Gods
Gods, Gods

Lost

I wanna love you, baby

Say that you'll be with me
Don't leave me, I'm in vain
Cause I've been lost for too long
Don't you go
Don't you leave me
Cause I've been lost for so long
So long
So long

When I see you from a distance
When I see how you ignore with resistance
And I know you have been
And your children are growing up
And your husband is loving you
I don't know if I can go on
Cause I've been so...
So lost
I've been so...
So lost
So lost
So lost
So lost

In the waking hour
In the middle of the night
When the moon is not just full
I see you in my eyes
I see you and it haunts me
And you tore me
And you haunt me

Cause I've been so...
So...
So lost

Of All Kind

I never felt the fame
I never won the game
If I had a wedding ring
You would be the only thing
That I

Wanna be where you are the spirits go
If the end should come I sure hope they know that

I love you like there's no end in sight
You're like a God in my mind
You're a highest high of all kind

Oh
If I could help it I would take your place instead
I just wanna end the pain baby
I just want you back again
Because I

Wanna be where you are the spirits go
If the end should come I sure hope they know that

There's no end in sight
You're like a God in my mind
You're a highest high of all kind

Never alone you surround me with your soul
Every where I go
You're around me and you know
Cause I love you like you're like my life
You're a God in my mind
You are of all kind

I love you like there's no end in sight
You're like a God in my mind
You're the highest high of all
I love you like there's no higher site
You're like a God in my mind
You're the highest high
Of all kind
Of all kind
You're a highest high
Of all kind
Of all kind
You're the highest high of all kind
I love you like there's no end in sight
You're like a God in my mind
Of all kind
All kind
All kind
You're the highest high of all kind

Listen Hear

Listen, hear, baby
Listen close, hear
Cause nothing here is gone
The thing still strong
Whenever things go wrong
Whenever things go left
You can be in charge
Cause I won't regret the way that I feel yet
And nevertheless, I'm here for you
And you're the one, the only thing that makes me want to stand up for you and me
To stand up for you baby

Cause nothing is wrong
Nothing is wrong
Everything's right
We're gon' be strong
We gon' be strong

Listen hear
Pay attention, my dear
Open your eyes see me more clear
I'm confusing at times, sometimes I might lie
I'm scared and I'm shy
To show you just how weak I am
Because sometimes I am not the kind of man I would like to be

Can't you see
I'm scared afraid
Destroyed be everything that I might un-make

There's a hole inside, there's something in me that tries to destroy it tries to deny the
Destiny that I've been given
Because the life I've chosen is not the life that I should be living
Oh listen, hear
Listen, hear
Nothing is wrong
