Lyrics

Only Life

 


 

It's Only Life

What does it mean?
What can you do about it?
What can you say?
You don't even know about it
Nobody talks
Nobody listens
Well look around
Yeah look out your window
They're having a ball
Having a party
Well come inside
You can do what you like
Well it's a nightmare
It's all negative
Nothing matters
And what if it did?
You could lock your doors
Close all your windows and
Hide away ...

It's only life ...

Too Much

How come you get so excited
Your soul so ignited
Can't make compromises
Can't wait for the surprises

You got a ways to go
There's so much to know
Got a ways to go
Too much to know

Why not forget about it
I know, no you can't help it
Never let down your armor
Just gotta try a little harder

You got a ways to go
There's so much to know
Got a ways to go
Too much to know

You got a ways to go
You got a lot to know
You got a ways to go
So much to know
You got a ways to go
There's so much to know

Deep Fascination

Got me going around
Kinda going around
No, I don't mind waiting
Never tire of waiting
Wanting you around
I want you around

Deep fascination

Find inspiration
Find inspiration
When I walk alone
Never really alone
Never far away
Want you every day
Hey

Deep fascination

Find inspiration

Higher Ground

On my way
Heading down
Time to find
Higher ground

In your arms
In my dreams
With you there
With you there

Be my light
By my side
If you dare
Be my guide

On your way
Try to find
Higher ground
For all time

On your way
Find your way
In the light
Hey hey hey

Be my life
By my side
If you dare
Be my guide

The Undertow

Bring back the innocent lords
It may be later than you think
There's new places to explore
But the old ones return tomorrow
Lines are forming all around
Hear them cry out above our heads
Divide the years apart
The passive grumble like a shell

I'm the intended, hear the call
Try to be careful and I don't know why
One hundred years, maybe more
I'm the intended and I don't mind it

Waiting patiently
Walk over to the window
Then you look away
Can't see no accidents
Waiting endlessly
It will be easier and
We will be together
Just another test
Like any other test

I'm the intended, hear the call
Try to be careful and I don't know why
One hundred years, maybe more
I'm the intended and I don't mind at all

And it all comes down
As you wait for the dream
You've known all along
But you're waiting alone
For the moment to come
And you hear them call
And you hear them call
And you're waiting alone

For Awhile

Taking your time
Get a little older
All the possibilities
Weigh down on your shoulders
Such imagination
I'm getting to the heart of it
It's about life
Trying to make the most of it
Whoa-o-o

For now
Find a way
It's not hard
It's automatic
For a while
Anyway
For a while
Anyway

It's about time
You take a little part of it
The weight of the world
Gonna get used to it
It's about love
Fall into the thick of it
But it's alright
Yeah it's alright
Whoa-o-o

For now
Find a way
From the heart
It's automatic
For a while
Anyway
For a while
Anyway
For a while
For a while ...

The Final Word

Hold me up
When I'm down
Lift me up
From the ground

The road will wind - You go along
Take my hand - It's alright
Not hard to find - You go along
It's in the plan - It's alright

Don't you turn back
Yeah it's alright
There ain't nothing in the way

Feed your head
Make up your mind
Be yourself
Don't stand in line

The final word - You go along
To be heard - It's alright
Spoken clear - You go along
Every word - It's alright

You take it easy
Yeah it's alright
Don't let it slip away

Be yourself
Be yourself

You go on - It's alright
You go on - It's alright

Too Far Gone

Well they found him laughing
They caught him running
He was down on his knees
He was under the table
Getting excited
Feeling excited
Temperature's rising
Fever is rising

Whoa-o yeah ready to go
Whoa-o yeah already gone
Whoa-ho

Away

Over in the corner
Causing a commotion
Driving me away
Driving me backwards
Baby's getting uptight
Listen to her holler
Listen to her heartbeat
Really getting louder

Burning with desire
Taking me higher
Taking me away
Set me on fire
Messing my mind up
Blowing my mind out
Blowing me away
Taking me away

Away

Going round in circles
Here we go again
Really going nowhere
Really going nowhere
Now we're really in deep
Now we're really in deep
Blowing me away
Taking me away

Away

What Goes On
(Velvet Underground)

What goes on in your mind,
I think that I'm falling down
What goes on in your mind,
I think that I'm upside down

Baby be good, do what you should
You know it'll work all right
Baby be good, do what you should
You know it will be allright

I'm going up, I'm going down,
I'm gonna fly from side to side
See the bells up in the sky,
Somebody's cut the string in two

Baby be good, do what you should
You know it'll work allright
Baby be good, do what you should
You know it will be allright

One minute one, one minute two,
One minute up, one minute down
What goes on in your mind,
I think that I'm falling down
