A WORLD WITHOUT YOU

I wouldn't wanna live in a world without you

Don't know what I would say if someone said I had to

I feel your love in everything you do

And there would be no love in a world without you​

I try to remember every word you say

They help me get through life, they guide the way

It's my duty to pass on the flame

To make sure everybody knows your name

I wouldn't wanna live in a world without you

Don't know what I would say if someone said I had to

I feel your love in everything you do

And there would be no love in a world without you

LITTLE ONE

Rest, little one

You've had a big day
Time to put you things away and rest, little one

When you are grown some day

I'll still think of you this way

 

Grow and learn but never change, sweetheart

Stay as perfect as you are

You'll go far, I know you will

As long as we can still hold you close

 

So rest, little one

When you are grown some day

I'll still think of you this way

My little one

FATAL HESITATION

It's been an age, so I could be wrong
Are we on the same page?
I've read the signs
But do I also need to read between the lines?

I don't know if you want me
So if you really want me, say

'Cause if you'd asked me to stay
I would be beside you today
You never asked me to stay
I didn't know, so now I'm miles away
This game of fatal hesitation
Making fools of all who dare to play

I really hoped when I'd found the one
I'd be done, but no
I'm really trying
But it's just as hard as it was the first time

I don't know how to do this
Tell me how to do this, please

CHORUS

I didn't want to
It's just the hand life dealt me
I don't understand
Please help me see how I ended up where I am now
What I wouldn't give for another go-around

CHORUS

IT'S RAINING UP THERE

We've been lucky

Not a drop of rain all day

The clouds above me

I watched them drift away

Have I passed on the curse?

I got it good, so someone's got it worse than me

But I don't feel the least bit guilty

'Cause over time we all get our share of rain

And our share of sunshine - that's life

On the day of my parade it may be grey or clear

For now it's good down here

But it's still raining up there

They're heading under cover

That much is plain to see

But we're not like the others

For us there is no need

But such luck, it cannot last

You may think the hurricane has passed, but beware

It's always calm in the eye of the storm, dear

CHORUS x2

 

 

 

THE WORLD THROUGH A MIRROR

 

Can anyone be blameless anymore?

'Cause they've changed what that word meant

From what it meant before

The silent are complicit

To be absent is a crime

Rarely does the world change in a day that way

Usually it's done one at a time

 

It starts in the mirror

Deciding what you want to see

The view becomes clearer

When you know who you want to be

It's up to you, you have to choose

Will you be the helping hand

Or the not-so innocent bystander?

 

The old ideas of 'normal' are gone

'Cause now it's clear they were harmful and wrong

But the times they are a-changing

And hopefully for good

In everyone the power to act has been within

But who can say they do all that they could?

 

CHORUS

SHOWER

It's about that time, it's about that time

We're getting ready to go to bed

Then the thought pops in my head

And something starts to flow, something starts to flow

The little one's rolling from room to room

While I'm trying to write this tune

But it's all good

When I'm feeling groovy

And it's too late to start a movie, yeah

That's when the instinct kicks in

When the hour's late

It's time to get creative

So I grab my six-string and do my thing and sing

What can I say? What can I say?

I like to play when it feels right

Any time, be it day or night

'Cause it's all good

CHORUS

SOUNDTRACK TO A SOAP

Here's another set of lines for us to read between
Who's the last one they were seen with?
Who can it be?

The masses cannot get enough
It keeps them all enthralled
They await each instalment with utmost glee

I get you like to share your voice
And yet I think that you should be prepared
To regret the choice to share too much
To do so is to open up Pandora's Box

They won't stop wanting you
And you will only have so much to give away

They'll take away from you
The right to decide what you mean 'bout what you say

Imagination is at play
Some use it way too much
Some use it, but not enough
They could use some help

Feels we're living in an age
Where people only feel
That they exist, that they are real, if they sell themselves
I call it hell

BRIDGE

CHORUS x2

JIMMY'S BAND

Jimmy brings his guitar to the market
Sings to all the people gathered there
Nobody knows him and nobody asked for it
And all they can do is stare

Jimmy sings his heart out for a little bit
Hoping that the crowd will sing along
When they don't he sighs, and finally takes the hint
Packs up and moves along

They don't see it yet
But one day I'll have a band
And when they see us play, they'll understand
They don't see it yet
But one day I'll have a band
And when they see us play, they'll understand

Jimmy tries again at the local park
Sets up in the middle of the green
Plays from midday 'til it starts getting dark
Barely acknowledged or seen

Could it be I'm just ahead of my time
Like most of the great ones were?
A star like mine deserves a chance to shine
Without it I'm just a no-hit wonder

Jimmy, have you ever thought of giving up?
“Hell no, quitting's not my style
I may never make it, I may never reach the top
But I'm sure as hell gonna try”

CHORUS
