Confessions

Verse

I never thought of you as someone I knew

Yet you have gone and broken my heart in two

And I can’t even say it’s something you’ve done, no

But still I need to put the blame on someone

 

Oh, oh, oh

 

Verse

No, I can’t justify these tears that I cry

I hang my head as I am wondering why

I don’t deserve to feel the way that I do, no

So what I do is point my finger at you

 

Chorus

’Cause it all gets to me somehow

Should have it figured out by now

And I know I should know, know when to let this go

But I am so confused

 

Verse

It’s all so vivid when I want it the most

Oh, the way they talk of it, I’ve heard it’s supposed to be so good

But baby, you’re not the first one to have been here before, no-o-oah

No, baby, nor will you be the last now, I know now for sure

 

Chorus

’Cause it all gets to me somehow

Should have it figured out by now

And I know you don’t know, but I can’t let this go

And now I’m so confused

 

Bridge

I can’t seem to find myself, oh, when you’re around

I can’t feel the ground

 

Chorus

’Cause it all gets to me somehow

Should have it figured out by now

And I know you don’t know, but I can’t let this go

And I am so confused

 

Stay

Verse

Standing by myself yet again, I watch you go, you go

Crossing of the minds of two broken souls, so you go and I go

 

Chorus

Stay with me awhile, it’s never easy, it’s never easy

Stay here by my side, I won’t try to keep it, I won’t try to keep it

 

Verse

You don’t seem to notice your faults, and I, I try to see why

And I know I have made some mistakes, but please don’t go, don’t go

 

Bridge

Stay here (Oooh…)
Stay here (Oooh…)

Stay here (Oooh…)

Stay here
I won’t keep you
If you stay here
For a while

 

…and around and around we go!

:/We go around, we go arou-ound, oh, oh, oh/: 3x

We go, we go

 

Chorus

:/Stay with me awhile, it’s never easy, it’s never easy

Stay here by my side, I won’t try to keep it, I won’t try to keep it/:

 

Stay with me awhile, it’s never easy, it’s never easy

 

Losing self

Verse

Oh, I am wasting myself again

(Mmm) Striving to tame what’s inside again

(Mmm) Can I let it live and watch it die

 

Chorus

(Oo-ooh) Oooh, we’re on our own

 

Verse

Are you wasting your time away

Fighting to free your mind, are you afraid

Are you leaving yourself behind

 

Chorus

Oooh, we’re on our own

Oooh, we’re not alone

 

:/Mmm, mm-mmm-mmm-mmm/:

Mmm, mm-m, mmm-mmm

Mmm, mm-mmm-mmm-mmm

 

Don't Wait (For Me)

Verse

I’ve got time on my hands

And it’s weighing on me
So heavily

 

Got a roof over my head
And I got walls to hold all things unsaid
But I can see the world peeking through the windows

 

Verse

I got people in my ears
They are clutching on to my heart
Fingers digging in, leaving their marks

 

So I’ve got nothing left to be
But the things that they expect from me

There’s nowhere to grow

 

Chorus

/:Don’t you wait for me

I won’t be here

To hold you up:/

 

Verse

They’ve got years on their backs

Lines on their faces

Traces of a life unlived

 

They’ve got time on their minds
It’s so hard to leave behind

 

Chorus
/:Don’t you wait for me

I won’t be here

To hold you up:/

 

/:Don’t you wait for me
I won’t be here

To hold you up:/

 

(I won’t be here

To hold you up)

 

The Wise Man

Verse

There once was a wise man

Who did not look at life and see what other people saw

He knew the only freedom is the one you grant yourself

He understood one needs to love to be when the day comes to an end

 

Chorus

So, he made time for the things he loved, but tried as hard to love what took his time

 

Verse

And he lived like a rich man
He had his pockets full of his currency of choice

He never needed more than what he gave of anything

He understood one needs to love to be when the night comes creeping in

 

Chorus

With his feet planted steadily in the fertile grounds of his soul and of his mind

He reaped the benefits of what he loved and tried to love what took his time

 

Chorus
But life is not always kind towards the man who never judges anyone
The ones who give the biggest smiles are often those who envy you the most

And so he learned his lessons hard, yet he never changed the way he saw the world

---------------------------------------
 

And so he lived his life like no one ever did

And despite the things he saw, and what he learned

It never took away his faith

 

Because life
Cannot be green
Without rain
And all of the mud that comes with it
