Lyrics

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN

What happens when you’re sick and you’re tired

i’m weak and slow; my head feels hollow
the fire still burns but the body’s a no-show
i choked when you spoke; and now I’m heartbroken

but I don’t know why… I don’t know why…
we could start over and over ‘til I start to cry

what happens when you’re sick and you’re tired

i found out the loneliest number was you
i kicked while you screamed but I don’t think we argued
the last one in line is the first one to lose
that’s not so bad, that’s not so bad
you rolled me over and over but now I feel sad

(go)

let’s hold our breath until someone gives in
let’s make a bet that they prayed for our sins
that’s just the breaks, maybe that’s just the blues

i don’t know how, I don’t know when
you knocked me out cold—cold—
baby, you win.

TELL ME ANOTHER STORY

Can you tell me another story?
one that’s simple, ‘cause I like ‘em told that way
if it’s all blood and guts, no glory
can you make the saddest parts go away

hold on, i can hear you say
hold on, cause i’m so afraid

but it’s
so. real.
baby. it’s. so. real.

i guess i worry about the flowers
(do they always close when the sun goes away)
i didn’t know that this ain’t ours
(i thought maybe –maybe– we were here to stay)

hold on, no one told me why
hold on, to this world going by

coz it’s. so. real.
baby. it’s. so. real.

tell me, tell me another…
tell me another story now.

WHEN EVERYTHING FALLS

Patience, my friend
i’m going to tell you
things you might already know

slowly, waiting.
what feels like the first time
is always the first thing to go

watch these days will slip away
just when you think they will stay
picture perfect only proves
same ol’ rains will fall on you

over in the corner
all the people in the room cower
and they yell and they scream for hours

and they waste all the moments they’re given
just like snakes, they make noise ‘til they’re bitten
with hearts broken, they’re all frozen smiles
they’re frozen but nobody notices
they’re frozen but nobody notices why

watch these days will slip away
just when you think they will stay
picture perfect only proves
same ol’ rains will fall on you

watch these days and watch these memories slip away
picture perfect only proves same ol’ rains will fall on you

patience, my son
I’m going to tell you….everything.

OFF TO THE MOON

Gone too soon
gone to the moon
there may be more
but no one’s sure

both of us, perilous, in this cocoon
one of us, wanderlust, off to the moon
holding hands, making plans, maybe too soon?
maybe no, we’re gonna be off to the moon

gone too soon
gone to the moon
there may be more
but no one’s sure

both of us, perilous, in this cocoon
both of us, wanderlust, off to the moon
holding hands, making plans, maybe too soon?
shouldn’t, cause we gotta be off to the moon

gone too soon
gone to the moon
there may be more…

but no one’s sure about it.

ALL WRAPPED UP IN A BOW

So freezing, deceiving
the way this story’s been told
believing, completely
everything we have been sold

maybe there’s one thing we should know
there’s only a minute left to go
maybe there’s one thing we should know
just don’t tell anyone

we’re out of control
some decisions were made that run counter to the flow
don’t let them know……oh no…don’t let them know…

so hold on to the one
that waited, that was there for you
don’t look now; they’re smiling
you’re glitter and they are the glue

but there is just one thing we should know
with only a minute left to go
if all of our dreams were made today…
would we tell anyone?

we’re out of control
some decisions were made that run counter to the flow
but don’t just let go
to the ones that we love: may they always always know
we’re out of control, when out of control
when we’re out of control….. out of control (solo over chorus chords)

maybe there’s one thing we should know: there’s only a minute left to go
maybe there’s one thing we should know: there’s only a minute left to go
all of our dreams were made this way….should we tell anyone?

we’re out of control; some decisions were made that run counter to the flow
but don’t just let go… to the ones that we love: may they always, always know
(that) we’re out of control; some decisions were made that run counter to the flow
but don’t just let go… to the ones that we love…. `to the ones that we love!

BEST DAY OF MY LIFE

Why did you go?
why did you leave?
i opened the door
i even said “please”
i can’t take no more
i need relief
now that you’re gone
away from me

i feel so low
i feel so beat
life has me grounded
and tied to this tree
i can’t take no more
i need relief
i wish you were here…
closer to me

i’m so sad… i’m so blue
that i blame it all, all on you
got my reasons, more than a few
better believe it’s true

but it’s the best day of my life
the best day of my life
and I can’t be held responsible
when it’s the best day of my life

i need some love
i need some speed
i need devotion
as I fall to my knees
i look up to the clouds
and wait for the breeze
for all of the rain
to fall down on me

you’re so blind, you’re so cold
i thought you’d be here when we’re growin’ old
i’m so down, no… I’m so low
i got no place, got no get up and go

but it’s the best day of my life
the best day of my life
and I can’t be held responsible
the best day of… the best day of my life.

PICTURE DAY

What if you dressed up in your sunday best: would it change you?
what if you messed up and you never knew how we missed you?

picture yourself now…
wondering what happened, why everything’s out of control

maybe the light in the sky just can’t seem to find you
maybe you think that the night came and chewed up and swallowed you

all of us sleeping on half-broken dreams
hope they don’t give us away (oh no…no)

picture yourself now…
wondering what happened why everything’s out of control
don’t know who we are now…
wondering what happened, did we lose the sweetest of souls?

maybe the thing with this love is it needs to find you
take all the pain you’ve held onto until it combines you
from this place maybe there’s more if life only reminds you
that anyone, everyone, all of us soon will be free

all of us sleeping on half-broken dreams
I hope they don’t give us away (oh no…no)

picture yourself now…
wondering what happened; is everything out of control?
guess who we are now…
wondering what happened, did we lose the sweetest of souls?

SPEECHLESS

And every time I think of you, I think of what is best
in spite of all the heartache I must get off of my chest
and if my spirit’s to be true, I feel I must come clean
if I could you know I would I’d say just what I mean, but…

so maybe take a trip with me, and maybe jump around
and maybe fly an airplane that we never should have found
and then jump out like heroes ‘cause what goes up=must come down
and laugh and smile and cradle hearts, until we kiss the ground

“it’s just so beautiful”

we’re growing up, we’re growing up, and everything we’re told
to hold our heads up, never let them take over our soul
and wait for rain, and wait for rain, to sweep up all the mess
the beauty—pain— of sweet sustain, ‘til the “no” becomes a “yes”

and just like that, with no disguise, we all count down from ten
‘til everything becomes a light and we start all over again

the square become a circle; I know we’re almost through
if I close my eyes, can you close your eyes….til I am just like you
just like

“it’s just so beautiful”

and so is this all that you ask of me now
as hard as this is i’m trying to tell you what I feel, what I feel

What I feel.

IF WE STAY CLOSE

Oh they can’t take you anywhere
and they can’t sing the songs you sing
standing shocked at the words you swear
as you grin

so they’ll try to take you down
steal your crown while goin’ outta bounds
throw their fists with spitting sounds
at your chin

slowly it goes, they expect you to fold
but it all turns to gold, if we stay close

falling down, you hit the dirt
not exactly how you wanted it?
chew the gravel as you reassert
who you’ve been

but the kingdom is open wide
as you lay on the outside
you hope that someone on the inside
will let you in

slowly it goes, they expect you to fold
but it all turns to gold, if we stay close
slowly it goes, they expect you to fold
but it all turns to gold, if we stay close…

if we stay close

all of us on the outside
hold our arms out open wide
so you can never say we never tried.

Album Review

Hello, friend. I just needed to take a moment to reach out to you and tell you how much I love your newest CD; I have probably played almost daily, Chance. No shit. Really.

The songs have touched me and reached me in a very deep place and I feel such a connection to the lyrics. It's inspiring, too. Not to mention that the production on this one is sick. Yes, it is. A-mazing. Good lord…

Now I know you've released a lot of stuff in the past, but in all honesty, I really didn't listen to it much. Not to say some of those other songs weren't great. And I know most artists evolve over time, finding their new sweet spot amidst their various experiences of life and such, both through pain and through joy. Living. There is just something verrrrry different about this collection of songs, man; there's such a vulnerability, such a richness, an almost airy quality about them, and this album is really something special. Truly. I hope you can feel it. I even hear it in the delivery of the lyrics. So sincere. So fucking awesome. You're in a really special place artistically. And maybe just in life in general. It's beautiful, amidst all the heartache and pain that you also had to endure throughout the process. Thanks for sharing it all. THANKS. A million thanks.

Wishing you much success and, most of all, the inner pride of knowing that your music matters and your creativity is shining brighter than ever. You need to know. And I'm here to tell ya.
