V1 Well, I’ve been broke so many times And that don’t include today But no matter how dirt poor I feel well I’ve got no room to say Cause I was born into the kind of wealth you just don’t find anywhere Conscience, liberty, the life-long pursuit, the freedom to grow my hair Now when it comes to all that we possess Man, we’ve got it good But that does not lead to happiness and I doubt it ever would CH And yet we’re climbing all over each other Tryin’ to get up on that hill And if we don’t happen to make it somebody will V2 Some like to make up excuses Say, “It’s all relative” But I don’t know what the use is Cuase that ain’t no way to live CH BR There were times I will admit I was chasing all of it Worked my fingers to the bone Pressed my nose against the stone Spent my afternoons alone In a prison all my own V3 Kids these days and the games they play Makes no sense to me They all want to be king of the mountain And that’s quite alright with me CH
2.
V1 You remind me of me When I was your age Like a bat out of hell But still in a cage Up and down you’re lookn’ for some kinda key You’ve got passion to burn Your motor’s prime You’ve got so much to learn In so little time Dusk ‘til dawn your lookin’ for some one to be Keep your eyes on the moon You’re gonna get there real soon CH But along the way put in the hours Along the way smell the flowers you see so carefully Hold your heart close to you And let it go for someone true when you’re reay And you will be So don’t mind the wait now, girl, Cause I know, you’re gonna be a pearl V2 And after a while the passion fades And you’ll get cut by sharper blades Have no fear you’ll have thicker skin And you’ll back up and hit rewind A higher calling you will find Have no doubt you’ll know just where to begin So close your eyes make the leap You’ve got so much to reap CH BR Some things won’t have a place in your heart And you should let them go For those with which you never want to part Their gonna need the room to grow V3 So, while heaven waits you’ll go through hell but the flames will only crack the shell And you’ll be so polished you’ll shine CH

V1 Well I went searching through the woods Rolling hills and neighborhoods Hell bent on finding love or get as close as I could Well I saw your name carved in a tree And I thought that meant you were for me So I took my sharpest knife and used it carefully CH I thought the world was spinning fine When I was yours and you were mine We may have shared our space and time But you and I will never rhyme V2 Our nights together turned into day I said all that I could say Shy of I love you and you did not run away When someone like you comes along It's hard to not break into song What harm could it do? Where could I go wrong? CH BR I have tried every word and syllable under the sky of blue With the hopes that I would find a part of me that rhymes with you Oh what I would do to rhyme with you V3 And on the surface you played the part But down below you did not have the heart To be with me and soon enough you ended things before they could start CH
5.
V1 You find yourself falling so fast assuming its all gonna last heart on your sleeve you have to believe its the love line that we all cast and when things just don't work out you find yourself filling with doubt was it something i said or should i have led with a whisper in lieu of a shout CH I should have known I was alone V2 And then one day you work up the nerve you find someone you think you might deserve step to the plate you're ready for your fate all the while you're looking out for that curve but you're in so deep you slowly unwind love has a funny way of messing up your mind to scared to part with your lonely heart there's a reason they say love is blind CH I don't want love to return If that means i haven't learned all of the warning signs of a heart getting thrown behind the lines. V3 The last time i asked you to dance I was looking for a little romance but i failed to see right in front of me your heart would not take the chance

V1 Choices make you think 
about scenarios 
all of us can guess
 but nobody knows
 closed eyes and open hearts
 to the words of the sage
 and i am none the wiser 
but I have come of age

 V2 Of all the chances
 that land in front of you 
take as many as you can 
and disregard a few 
some will pass you by
 but when you turn the page
 they’ll be far behind you 
and you’ll have come of age

 BR and you’ll try 
to not decide
 but time
 won’t let you hide
 and fate 
won’t hesitate for you V3 

so much to consider 
in so little time 
you think you have your whole life 
to commit the perfect crime
 though you’re free you’ve been seen
 circling the cage
 but you are not a prisoner you are not a prisoner you are not a prisoner 
you have come of age

V1 When time slows down And I get A moment to look around It’s always in wonder at the luck the luck I have found But when I think of you And what I was going through What if I... CH What if you were meant for me But I was too caught up in life to see What if you Came ‘round again Would I see you then V2 And so they say That you can’t You can’t think that way Cause that was then And this is now And we are here to stay But when I close my eyes And I realize What If I... CH BR How many times will you come and go How many times until I know Finding you is beyond my control But these things take time But my love is on the line V3 If I stay put Will you know where to look And when the day does come Will I know you are the one What if I... CH

V1 Some people need a fairy tale To show them how to feel Some are happy to be a fake In a ruse to come off real I don’t pretend to understand Any rationale they give So keep your delusions to yourself I’ll find a better way to live CH What about reality Is so hard to endure What good is a high How bad the low If the drug was never pure If you don’t take what’s given you How could you ask for more No amount of filtering will make it better than before BR Everybody does it (it don’t make it right) How will I compare (it don’t make it right) What’s everybody thinking (it don’t make it right) What if I don’t share at all How will you ever know What I’ve seen or where I’ve been if I have nothing to show And would you suspect That look in my eyes Don’t reflect who you know in real life V2 I am not a living saint I have no following But I am surrounded by honest folks Who can tell me anything So go ahead you live your life It is yours and yours alone But everything you choose to post Forever you will be known

V1 Try not to get ahead of myself When I think takin’ this heart off it’s shelf Something ‘bout the way you talk Makes me want to run before I walk V2 Try not to mess with fate this time More than emotions are on the line I’m looking out for that open door Isn’t that what hope is for Ch Until I’m on your mind And in your sights Wrapped up with your arms Bathed in morning light Like a horse before his cart I’m gonna lead my way into your heart V3 Love is a sequence of events Some seem obvious while others make no sense I know enough to stay out the way Let things happen day by day Ch Until I’m on your mind And in your sights Wrapped up with your arms Bathed in morning light Like an actor and his part I’m gonna lead my way into your heart Br Let my heart run wild Gonna let it get all riled up And beat for you ‘Til there’s nothing left to do But to love you I’ve never sailed this close to shore Never thrown the anchor overboard Oh to be on your mind And in your sights Wrapped up with your arms Bathed in morning light Like a captain and his charts I’m gonna lead my way into your heart
13.
V1 If you were near I would call your name So you would hear And maybe do the same V2 And if you were close I would be inclined To do something grandiose And fill up your mind BR With thoughts You’ve never had before And sentiments That open up the doors To feelings You might have to explore V3 And if you were by my side I would find it so damn hard For me to ever hide The heart I should guard V4 And if you were near I would love to say Words you would never hear When you are far away.
