One Less Day (Dying Young)

I'm not afraid of getting older
I'm one less day from dying young
I see the light go past my shoulder
I'm one less day from dying young

I see my life like a train with a one-way track
I've made mistakes, and I couldn't take 'em back
And I've been runnin' 'round in circles 'til I'm dizzy, I can't lie
But every night I go to sleep's a day that I survive

I'm not afraid of getting older
I'm one less day from dying young
I see the light go past my shoulder
I'm one less day from dying young

And I've seen my friends fall away before their time
And I've been afraid that I may follow in their light
So I drink and love and whisper all the things I know are right
Someday, I will leave this world, but maybe not tonight

I'm not afraid (I'm not afraid) of getting older
I'm one less day (I'm one less day) from dying young
I see the light (I see the light) go past my shoulder
I'm one less day (I'm one less day) from dying young
I'm one less day (I'm one less day) from dying young (yeah!)

All my life I have been wandering
Burning up my candle like my time just won't end
And I'll keep burning 'til there's nothing left
Praying that tomorrow I can do it all again
And if I get tomorrow, I will do it all again

I'm not afraid of getting older
I'm one less day from dying young
And I see the light go past my shoulder
I'm one less day from dying young

I'm not afraid (I'm not afraid) of getting older
I'm one less day (I'm one less day) from dying young (from dying young)
I see the light (I see the light) go past my shoulder
I'm one less day (I'm one less day) from dying young (from dying young!)
I'm one less day (I'm one less day) from dying young (from dying young!)
Hey!

(I'm one less day from dying young) (I see the light)
(I'm one less day from dying young)
(I'm one less day from dying young)

Timeless

Drivin' home, but it don’t feel right
There's a weight in the air tonight
There's something missin’
Sister christian says she don't feel right
I don't know where it all went wrong
I get lost in an '80s song
I keep it movin' while you're putting on the red light

I thought if I leave, I could give you all your freedom
Let you find your sweet dreams, girls just wanna have fun
Maybe we're tied up, maybe we're a strange love
But don’t you want me?

All this talk of modern love
I know what you’re thinking of
Our love is timeless, timeless, timeless
All this shit we're going through
Nothing compares to you
Our love is timeless, timeless, timeless

Oh whoa, oh, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh, oh whoa
Our love is timeless, timeless, timeless

Free falling to the ground, I wait for you to save me
This is a new sensation, iI give it all that I’ve got
I'll be your father figure, I'll be your Major Tom
I'm gonna bring you down in 4, 3, 2, 1

We’ll stay inside, baby, just enjoy the silence
Or I could turn you inside out

All this talk of modern love
I know what you're thinking of
Our love is timeless, timeless, timeless
All this shit we're going through
Nothing compares to you
Our love is timeless, timeless, timeless

Oh whoa, oh, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh, oh whoa
Our love is timeless, timeless, timeless
Oh whoa, oh, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh, oh whoa
Our love is timeless, it's timeless here

It's timeless here
It's timeless here

All this talk of modern love
I know what you're thinking of
Our love is timeless, timeless, timeless
All this shit we're going through
Nothing compares to you
Our love is timeless, timeless, timeless

Oh whoa, oh, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh, oh whoa
Our love is timeless, timeless, timeless
Oh whoa, oh, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh, oh whoa
Our love is timeless, it's timeless here

It's timeless here
It's timeless here

Can't Help Me Now

Sunlight falls heavy
Can't hide, you’re awake already
Long night, you're unsteady
You don't even wanna be here, do you?
Cry out, not for the last time
It’s funny how a word might save your life
And I'm saying a lot right now

But I don't wanna fight, I don't wanna cry
I don't wanna leave, I don't wanna be here, be here now
There's a bad taste in my mouth
I stumble in the dark, tripping on a heart
It's gonna leave a mark, maybe we can stay and wait it out
You’re the one that talks me down
And even you can’t help me now
Even you can't help me now

Headlight, dark highway
Drive on, but it feels all sideways
No signs, I’m a headcase
I'm alone, but I feel you, feel you now
Head down, I can't remember
If we left on a start or an ender
You and I, we're so worn down

But I don’t wanna fight, I don't wanna cry
I don't wanna leave, I don't wanna be here, be here now
Like a bad taste in my mouth
I stumble in the dark, tripping on a heart
It's gonna leave a mark, maybe we can stay and wait it out
You're the one that talks me down
Even you can't help me now

And we fall, and we break
And we turn our inside out
And we're lost in a daze
For days and days and days and now
But I thought that I could turn it around

But I don't wanna fight, I don't wanna cry
I don't wanna leave, I don't wanna be here, be here now
There's a bad taste in my mouth
I stumble in the dark, tripping on a heart
It's gonna leave a mark, maybe we can stay and wait it out
You're the one that talks me down
And even you can't help me now (Sunlight falls heavy)
Even you can't help me now (Sunlight falls heavy)
Baby, even you can't help me now (Sunlight falls heavy)
Even you can't help me now

Funny

I was born on a bad sign
Saw the best in the worst times
Had a run with some good lines
All fear and alibi
Had a laugh for a good while
And all my tears were crocodile
I came down hard a million miles away
And here I am

So let it fall around our feet
I'm with you and you’re with me
And you're the only one I think about these days
We may win or we may lose
All I know is that I'd choose it all again
And how I feel could never fade
Life is funny that way
That way

I was raised on a fault line
Thought the faults were all mine
I drank so hard, I almost died
Most of the time
And what the hell do I know
When I just go where the wind blows?
All this time and all I know
Is I don't know so much

So let it fall around our feet
I'm with you and you're with me
And you're the only one I think about these days
We may win or we may lose
All I know is that I'd choose it all again
And how I feel could never fade

Oh, now I never thought that I was enough
I never thought I pulled my weight
I painted the lines until I was drawn
But I'm not sure that it looks like me

I was born on a bad sign
Saw the best in the worst times
Singing all of the wrong lines all my life

So let it fall around our feet
I'm with you and you're with me
And you’re the only one I think about these days
We may win or we may lose
All I know is that I’d choose it all again
And how I feel could never fade
Oh, life is funny that way
That way

I Love It

Don't fear no mountain, don't fear no climb
Don't need no woman to get me by
I got it bad, I read your mind
Know what you're thinking all the time

This is the new stuff, rub you black and blue stuff
See what I can do stuff, you wish it was you stuff
You don't wanna like it, but I'm feeling like you do stuff
I'll just keep it real 'nuff, everybody, hold up

I love it
Feeling nothing
Man, I love it
Feeling gets me down, down, down
I love it
Feeling nothing
Man, I love it
Feeling gets me down, down, down

Bring on that mountain, bring on that climb
I'm in the moment, you heard it right
You got me wrong, I'll let it slide
Just pay attention, I'll tell you right

I got it made now, I've been getting paid out
Won't be getting played out, never gonna fade out
I'll just keep on nailing you with fire 'til you flame out
Tell me how it feels now, you've got nothing real now

You got nothing
I'm about to
I'm about to, I'm about to break out
And I don't know why
Lord, I'm feeling high, so I'll testify

I love it
Feeling nothing
Man, I love it
Feeling gets me down, down, down
I love it
Feeling nothing
Man, I love it
Feeling gets me down, down, down

I love it
Feeling nothing
Man, I love it
Feeling gets me down, down, down
I love it
Feeling nothing
Man, I love it
Feeling gets me down, down, down

Down, down, down, down, down, down
I love it, I love it
I love it, I love it

The Man to Hold the Water

Where you go, I will follow
Where you are, I will be
When you're lost, I will find you
And when you fall, fall on me

I’ve never been the man to hold the water
I thought of how a life like that could be
Where you go, I will follow
Where you are, I will be

Where you go, I will follow
Through this life and in between
The road is long, alone is longer
And most of I is you and me

Looking back on every false horizon
I thought I knew the better part of me
Where you go, I will follow
Where you are, I will be

Where I go, you will follow
Where I've been, you may be
And when this life is hard to swallow
Close your eyes and call on me

I've never been the man to hold the water
I thought of how a life like that could be
Where you go, I will follow
Where you are, I will be
Where you go, I will follow
Where you are, I will be

We Were Beautiful

I am not so sure, I am not so brave
You are not so broken you cannot be saved
We are just affection thrown out in all directions
We cannot take it back, can you picture that?
This is all we have, this is all we need
Life is like a circle coming back to me
This will not be easy, this will not be safe
Nothing ever feels that way no more

Yeah, but once we were young
We were beautiful and we were strong
We didn't think too hard of what would come
We were beautiful when we were young

Well, I'm somewhere in the moment, I ain't lost, I own it
I see what it can be, the proof is all around me
Second thoughts and doubt turn me inside out
The innocence I lack, can you picture that?
So you call on the devil but the devil don't come
You call on yourself 'cause you never need no one else
Like this is the last time, like you've been lost inside your mind
Fighting all this time, your memories are kind
Living life in rewind just reminds you

Once we were young
We were beautiful and we were strong
We didn't think too hard of what would come
We were beautiful when we were young
Oh, we were beautiful when we were young

Yeah, but once we were young
We were beautiful and we were strong
We didn't think too hard of what would come
'Cause we were beautiful when we were young

Oh yeah, once we were young
We were beautiful and we were strong
We didn't think too hard of what would come
'Cause we were beautiful when we were young
Yeah, we were beautiful when we were young

It's Only Love

Call off the dawn
'Cause I'm wide awake and can't seem to move on
I can't be alone with myself
And I can't find the way on my own
And I'm not the kind to be scared of an ending
I know that we're all that we've lost
I'm not the one to hold on to the memory
I know that the future could tear us apart

It's only love
It's hard to believe when it's said and done
You cry when you think that you've had enough
It's only love

I lie and I wait
I'm scared of the thought of facing a new day
I can't see the end in my head
But I know that it starts out this way
And if all these roads
Don't lead you home

It's only love
It's hard to believe when it's said and done
You cry when you think that you've had enough
It's only love
It's only love

All that we had and all that we've lost
It comes down to now, we're moving so slow
It happened so fast, maybe it's all we had

It's only love
It's hard to believe when it's said and done
You cry when you think that you've had enough
And it's only love
It's only love, love, love, love, love, love
It's only love, love, love, love, love, yeah
It's only love
Love, it's only love

Early in the Morning

Well I, I feel done wrong
Ain't been myself in far too long
I can't blame nobody, what I done wrong
Just blame myself and all is lost
From now on I will

I'm gonna wake up early in the morning
I'm blind but I'll raise my eyes to a new day dawning
Gonna raise my head when the sun comes up
And I won't lay down 'til the work's done
I'm gonna wake up early in the morning
I'm wise but there's still so much that I ain't been learning
Gonna raise my voice 'til I am heard
'Til the world rings out with my dying words, oh
I'm gonna wake up early in the morning

Don't wait, wait too long
Don't hide your feelings 'til the feeling's gone
'Cause when you suffer, pain makes you strong
And when you lose, you own that loss
From now on I know

That I'm gonna wake up early in the morning
I'm blind but I'll raise my eyes to a new day dawning
Gonna raise my head when the sun comes up
And I won't lay down 'til the work's done
I'm gonna wake up early in the morning
I'm wise but there's still so much that I ain't been learning
Gonna raise my voice 'til I am heard
'Til the world rings out with my dying words, oh
I'm gonna wake up early in the morning
I am, I'm gonna wake up early in the morning

And in the warmer light of day
I will resurrect my faith
And I'll scream out loud while demons that I chase
Strike me down without a warning
But I will win this morning

I'm gonna wake up early in the morning
I'm blind but I'll raise my eyes to a new day dawning
Gonna raise my head when the sun comes up
And I won't lay down 'til the work's done
I'm gonna wake up early in the morning
I'm wise but there's still so much that I ain't been learning
Gonna raise my voice 'til I am heard
'Til the world rings out with my dying words
And I'm gonna wake up early in the morning
I am, I'm gonna wake up early in the morning

The Worst in Me

When it's late I'm a mess
You can tell, I can guess
There's a weight in your eyes
You and me, we're all out of lies

I said it's alright
If you wanna fight now
'Cause I know we can go all night

Baby, wait a minute 'cause it's all I got
I was hanging on a moment that wouldn't stop
God damn, it's never easy, you know it's true
But the worst in me could bring out the best in you

Run away from it all
You can hide, I can stall
And I know that I'm wrong
But I can't stop now 'cause I'm too far gone

It's alright (It's alright)
If you wanna cry now (If you wanna cry now)
'Cause I don't wanna calm this down

Baby, wait a minute 'cause it's all I got
I was hanging on a moment that wouldn't stop
God damn, it's never easy, you know it's true
But the worst in me could bring out the best in you

Tear it away, a piece at a time
Hanging your head like you're losing a best friend
The stain on your heart in the shape of a name
Carved there by me
Take it all as it comes
Fight it out 'til it's done
All the weight and the blame
In the end we're the same

Baby, wait a minute 'cause it's all I got
I was hanging on a moment that wouldn't stop
God damn, it's never easy, you know it's true
But the worst in me could bring out the best in you
Baby, wait a minute 'cause it's all I got (Baby, you)
I was hanging on a moment that wouldn't stop
(I could bring out the best in you)
God damn, it's never easy, you know it's true
You know the worst in me could bring out the best in you

Tomorrow

I listen to your heartbeat coming from the bed sheet
Keeping up the time with the song on the TV
Keeping up a tempo, everything is so low
I don't wanna sleep 'cause the moment is borrowed
Everything at half speed, like a woke dream
I don't wanna think that I won't see tomorrow

We are so f*cked up
We just don't know how
We just keep on fighting
'Til the bell rings and we're out
Listen to that sound
Turn it up right now
'Cause we all know tomorrow
Will only break your heart

I listen to your heartbeat coming down the hallway
Kinda wanna reach but it's never in a real way
I'm a little simple, but I'm stable
I give it all when I can if I'm able
Everything is alright until it ain't right
And we all know that we ain't alright right now

We are so f*cked up
We just don't know how
We just keep on fighting
'Til the bell rings and we're out
Listen to that sound
Turn it up right now
'Cause we all know tomorrow
Will only break your heart

Don't look now my friend
We are lost and then
We come back again
Tomorrow will only break your heart

We are so f*cked up
We just don't know how
We just keep on fighting
'Til the bell rings and we're out
Listen to that sound
And turn it up right now
'Cause we all know tomorrow
Will only break your heart

We fall down and then
(Turn it up right now
Tomorrow)
We come back again
(Tomorrow will only break your heart)
Tomorrow will only break your heart
(Listen to that sound
And turn it up right now)
Ah yeah
('Cause we all know tomorrow
Will only break your heart)
Tomorrow will only break your heart

Breathe Out

When the world is making promises that it can't keep
You alone your only friend
Breathe out, breathe in, breathe out again
When the road you're on is longer than you ever thought you'd go
You're always on the mend
Breathe out, breathe in, breathe out again

That weight on your shoulder is worse when you're older
The lines that you've drawn will wear thin
When all that's inside you is screaming for rescue
Breathe out again

When the life you live is falling short of what you want
But it's all that you can give
Breathe out, breathe in, breathe out again
Breathe out, breathe in, breathe out again

That weight on your shoulder is worse when you're older
The lines that you've drawn will wear thin
When all that's inside you is screaming for rescue
Breathe out again

When the world is making promises that it can't keep
You alone your only friend
Breathe out, breathe in, breathe out again
Oh, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out again
