LYRICS

RAISE THE DEAD

I can’t give up
Our empty room
I still feel as one
With you

But you can’t raise the dead
From the ever after
I can’t deny it
I felt a lie
That will always be there in my head

There were days
When i believed
The lie that kept us hanging on
‘til I realized

But you can’t raise the dead
From the ever after
I can’t deny it
I felt a lie
That will always be there in my head

You can’t raise the dead
From the ever after

You’re all lit up
But it’s too late
It’s all the same
I’ll take the blame..again

You can’t raise the dead
From the ever after
I can’t deny it
I know we tried
And it’s hard to let go of the past

You can’t raise the dead
From the ever after.


You can’t raise the dead
From the ever after

I can’t deny it
I know we tried
And you’ll always be there in my head.




STRATEGIES

Strategies don’t work for me
They just break my heart
Life’s so easy without you
But it breaks my heart

You can’t jump cut to the end
Your love erases you again
It’s not a move
It’s not a play
Another worn out strategy

Strategies don’t work for me
They just break my heart
Life’s so easy without you
But it breaks my heart

Oh honey don’t mess with me now
No honey don’t mess with me now
Don’t mess with me now…

It’s not a gift,it’s not for free
It can’t be bought that easily
You set it up it breaks down
You set it up it breaks down,down.

Strategies don’t work for me
They just break my heart
Life’s so easy without you
But it breaks my heart
Oh it breaks my heart

These strategies

It’s all I’ve got.




DEMOCRACY OF ONE

I am remembering
The sighs and the whispers
Of a thousand days
Hiding from the sun
You looked so beautiful
Stripped of your disguise
Nothing but see through on
Oh no

I never should have let you go
But until it’s done you can never truly know
How it feels to be alone
It’s hard to be alone

Those days are gone
Both ends against the middle
A democracy of one
Those days are gone
My friend
A democracy of one is never wrong

We’ve given up
Looking at each other
We’re just hanging on for survival
We got caught up
In gaining ground
Just trying to make a bigger island
More room for the lonesome
Where I stand
This war’s not to be won
By anyone

I never should have let you go
But until it’s done you can never truly know
How it feels to be alone
It’s hard to be alone

Those days are gone
Both ends against the middle
A democracy of one
Those days are gone
My friend
A democracy of one is never wrong

The tough part of a lost heart
Is the restlessness
And I feel it now as it turns to loneliness
And the promises we made they were understood
In a better world I would have made them good
Oh but I let you go
Yeah I let you go…

I never should have let you go
But until it’s done you can never truly know
How it feels to be alone
It’s hard to be alone

Those days are gone
Both ends against the middle
A democracy of one
Those days are gone
My friend
A democracy of one is never wrong
A democracy of one is never wrong.




LIGHT YEARS FROM THE SUN

I watch a new day breaking in
Breaking down my door
And anything is possible
As life begins once more

But something in the atmosphere
Is drowning out my voice
And I wish I could be with you
To help you make that choice

It’s been there since before the world began
And the universe exploded into stars
Here we are now
Looking out and searching for an answer
It’s not that far..

I’ve had enough of waking up
And wanting something more
Than weightlessness and promises
Of  greatness I want more
Than laying on this tv screen
Your likeness dying to be seen
And all this space that’s in between
Now and where we have been


It’s been there since before the world began
And the universe exploded into stars
Here we are now
Looking out and searching for an answer
It’s not that far..


What am I running from?
Who I am what I’ve become
Someone light years from the sun
Someone light years from the sun
Light years from the sun.

It’s been there since before the world began
And the universe exploded into stars
Here we are now
Looking out and searching for an answer
It’s not that far..




WHAT GOOD IS LOVE?

What good is love
If you can break it
Like diamonds in your hand
What good is it
What does it matter
When supply exceeds demand
What good is love?

What good is love
If you can break it
Turn around
And forsake it
Can you tell me
What good is love?

What good is love
When thirst is killing
And there’s poison in the well
What good is it
If you are willing
To buy but never sell

What good is love
If you can doubt it
Next thing you know
You can live without it
Can you tell me
What good is love?

I’m moving on
Off this island
Gonna spread my wings
And seek asylum
In nothing
Is that good enough..?


What good is love
With standards falling
And your name all over town
God mocks the man
Whose certitude
Becomes his only ground

What good is love
If you can fake it
Turn around
There’s no mistaking
If you call that love
What good is love?
Can you tell me
What good is love?




THE HEART WON’T BE DENIED

In the last few hours of daylight
As you slipped off your dress
I remembered how it felt
To be alive
To be alive
Then we talked and played some music
It took me by surprise
When you told me I’d been sleeping
With my eyes open wide

But the heart won’t be denied
When it call you’ve got to answer
In the end love will decide
The heart won’t be denied

On a long forgotten evening
Just be fore the dawn
I held my breath and prayed
I prayed that you might come along
And somehow my prayers were answered
But you’re nowhere to be seen
Did you do it just to haunt me
Show me what could and could not be

But the heart won’t be denied
When it calls you’ve got to answer
It won’t let those feelings slide
The heart won’t be denied

Ancient architecture
I’ve studied it a lot
They knew what they were doing
Don’t think the heart does not
So I’m telling you to watch out
Cause you know I’m coming back
And you better be ready
Prepared for my attack

‘Cause the heart won’t be denied
When it calls you’ve got to answer
In the end love will decide
The heart won’t be denied
The heart won’t be denied
The heart won’t be denied.



EMELIA

Oh  Emelia
Where does the time go?
Leaves are falling then it’s snow
You will grow up
And you will fall in love
And see a world I’ll never know
Oh Emelia

Oh Emelia
The stars are out tonight
And each one of them has a name
When you look up
Do you realize
A bear is talking to the moon?

Oh Emelia
Where does the time go?
We can’t pretend it doesn’t show
You will grow up
And you will fall in love
And change a world I’ll never know

It’s true
Yeah it’s true
It’s true
Yeah it’s true

Oh Emelia
Where does the time go?
Emelia
Where does the time go?



THE DEVIL MADE A SAINT

The devil made a saint
No flowers on your grave
And I will not be free
Until they measure me

For you
Darling I’ll be true
For you

My future awaits
Beyond those big old gates
Or somewhere in the dirt
Depending what I’m worth

To you
Darling I’ll be true
To you
To you

And the days go by so fast
It never lasts
Oh how they wear on us..

Which one will help me find my way home?
Find my way home

Black rivers in the night
Black hair upon my lap
I watched that river run
It’s never coming back

For you
Darling I’ll be true
For you
For you

And the days go by so fast
It never lasts
Oh how they wear on us..

Which one will help me find my way home?
Find my way home
Which one will help me find my way home?
Find my way home
Which one will help me find my way home?
Find my way home.

INNOCENT WORLD

We don’t know which way we’re going
Don’t know where we are
Find a way out
Find a way

Home is somewhere I’m missing
When I look around
Find a way out
Find a way

Hell has no reason to smile
When you’re living in an innocent world
You once had a heart like a child
Now it’s buried under sadness and guilt

Don’t run away
Don’t run away
Don’t run away now


REFUGE

Looking back i see the truth
Is easier to find
I was blind,yes i was blind to everything

We're further down the road and i
Still can't reconcile
My true feelings they have
Traveled these same miles

You always were the lucky one
Where are you now i've come undone?

Maybe there's a place for us
A place where we can run
Maybe there's a place for us to go
Where dreams they never die
And we are free forever you and i
When all is lost not won
To this refuge i will run...

There were signs i should have read
And things we cannot change
Just like a lover slowly turning into a friend

You always were the lucky one
Where are you now i've come undone?

Maybe there's a place for us
A place where we can run
Maybe there’s a place for us,to go
Where dreams they never die
And we can see through darkness you and i
And when the day is done
To this refuge i will run...

To this refuge
I will run..


Looking back i see the truth
Is easier to find
I was blind,yes i was blind to everything


Maybe there's a place for us
A place where we can run
Maybe there’s a place for us,to go
Where dreams they never die
And we are free forever you and i
When all is lost not won
To this refuge i will run...

To this refuge I will run
To this refuge I will run
To this refuge I will run.
