Derek

You wrote me a letter
You’re sendin’ it right now
I’ll read in the mornin’
What wasted time’s about
“I gave you my body
Your kids, my soul
This is not what love’s about
I think you’re gettin’ old”

And this is my reaction
I’ve lived many lives
And I feel raw emotion
And I always know what’s right

So goodnight
Cause I’m sleepin’ in my mind
Goodnight
Yes I’m sleepin’ with my eyes wide open
Just hope that I’ll take me now

And I am a genius
Yes I am bold
Well I am a strong man
Who’s figured it out
And I’ve conquered the land of dreams
They misunderstand me
Affection’s what I need

And this is my reaction
I’ve lived many lives
And I feel raw emotion
And I always know what’s right

So goodnight
Cause I’m sleepin’ in my mind
Goodnight

Yes I’m sleepin’ with my eyes wide open
Just hope that I’ll take you now
(I’ll take you now!)

And this is my reaction
I’ve lived many lies
And I feel raw emotion
And I always know what’s right!

Is Love Enough

Is love enough?
Who knows, love grows
Just let be told, the throws, the blows
I’m callin’ your bluff
She knows, love grows
And if I give in, if I’m livin’ and if I’m willin’
Just let it pass over me

Well I fight and pray
A sign, it’s mine
Thank God it’s today
The wine’s divine
I’ll say what I say
That’s fine, this time
And if I give in, if I’m livin’ and if I’m willin’
Just let it pass over me

Cause this boy don’t fall for
A good time
This boy can’t live off
No cheap wine
He do what he do
He won’t let go
So is love enough?
Well how would you know (would you know?)
Yeah, how would you know?
Yeah, how would you know?

Well is love enough?
There’s more, for sure
I know it’s been rough
The drunk,
Don’t give me that stuff
Cause love is pure
And yes, I give in
Yes, I’m willin’ and I’m livin’
So just walk over me!

Take a pretty walk over me!
Just take a walk over me!
Let’s your pretty shoes just walk over me…
Just walk, walk, walk…
walk, walk…
walk, walk, walk over me!
Just walk over me! (x2)
You just walked over meeee!

It Begins

 

It begins like this
Want to live like this
You can work me down
I’m free

I’ll decide on you when I can think for me
So it ends like this
I’m free

The candlelight alone is burning, it’s drawing me in
Talk it through
I could run away alone now, the road is my friend
But I love you

Hold out your hand, I will give you a symbol
Of not what you are what you mean to this simple man
That’s now who I am

Still your words can hurt me

Do I deserve abuse in my fragile youth
I’m feeling wiser now
I’m free

The candlelight alone is burning, it’s drawing me in
Talk it through
I could run away alone now, the road is my friend
But I love you

Hold out your hand, I will give you a symbol
Of not what you are what you mean to this simple man
That’s now who I am

Hold out your hand, I will give you a symbol
Of not what you are what you mean to this simple man
Cause that’s now who I am

Hold out your hand, I will give you a symbol
Of not what you are what you mean to this simple man
That’s now who I am

Still your words can hurt me

Hold out your hand, I will give you a symbol
Of not what you are what you mean to this simple

Hold out your hand, I will give you a symbol

Hold out your hand, I will give you

It begins like this
I want to live like this
You can’t hold me back
I’m free

Paradise

I’ve kissed your picture
Every day I’ve been gone
I call all the time
But you’re never home
I know you’re workin’
And that ain’t wrong
But  I just need you here with me

Cause you see most days
It’s a glass of whiskey
And a shot of beer
I’m cryin’ in streams
I don’t cry in tears
And you’ve shown me somethin’
That in all my years
I’ve never seen before
Yeah, you’ve shown me
Somethin’ that in all my years
I’ve never seen before

I could be in paradise
I could be in hell
I’m so numb that I can’t even tell
My heart is screamin’ and I can’t yell
And you’re too far away
To hear me cry
So I drink myself to sleep
Almost every night

Well I’ll return and then you’ll leave
I guess I’ll see you in my dreams
So go on darlin’
Spread your wings
And when you’re flyin’
Fly back to me

Cause you see most days
It seems like the hours
They’re on repeat
It’s hard to dream when you can’t sleep

And you’ve shown me somethin’
That in all my tears
I’ve never seen before
Yeah, you’ve shown me somethin’
Through all my tears
I’ve never seen before

I could be in paradise
Well I could be in hell
I’m so numb that I can’t even tell
My heart is screamin’ and I can’t yell
And you’re too far away
To hear me cry
So I drink myself to sleep
Almost every night


Passport

I lost my passport
In a strip club
Last time I take off there
I made a run for my wallet
There was no need to stop and stare
My first time to a strip club
I just felt guilty
I went straight to the bathroom
For a couple of lines of self-pity

And no one will know
How my eyes they will glow
And I’ll drink so much
So that I won’t feel my soul
A few more lines of confidence
And I was rarin’ to go

Gonna get a new passport
So I can fly back home
I’m gonna sort my life out
Cause I’m bored of cruise control

But still here for a few weeks
So I’m gonna push my boundaries
I’m gonna spend too much money
Go out and get stoned

And no one will know
How my eyes they will glow
And I’ll drink so much so
That I won’t sooth my soul
A few more lines of confidence
And I was waitin’ to go

Well I been dreamin’ amazin’ things will happen to me
You’ll see
You’ll see

And no one will know
How my eyes they will glow
And I’ll think so much so
That I will sooth my soul
A few more vodes of confidence cause I’m…
A few more vodes of confidence cause I’m…
A few more vodes of confidence cause I am
Never lettin’ go

A few more vodes of confidence cause I’m…
I’m never lettin’ go


Pretty Boy

If you see a pretty boy with intellectual powder spoiling
Desire, Call out his name
At first glance his python stare may hold you, may take your breath
Desire, Calls out your name

Take a sniff
His soft kill lips are holding on to truth

Covered with unhappiness and threatened by his loneliness
Desire, Calls out his name
Stretching out his confused like then elevated by the night
Desire, Calls out your name

Take a sniff
His soft kill lips are holding on to truth

Craving, yearning, fading, done
Changing, yelling, fooling, done

So if you see a pretty boy with intellectual powder spoiling
Desire, Sing out his name
Cause at first glance his python stare may hold you, may take your breath
Desire, Spell out your name

Take a sniff
His soft kill lips are holding on to you


Scared

I cast aside my emptiness
Then inability to care
Throw empty words; drink because I’m scared
I force myself to fall in love
They’re so unaware
Simulate control because I’m scared

I run, I fall
Beneath it all
Love’s hard, I’m told

I’m makin’ change; I swear to me
You won’t complain about misery
What do you know about lonely?
You have everyone you need
What do you know? You’re happy
My soul is sliced with greed

I genuinely counterfeit all my conversations
Keep my truths because I’m scared
And I’ve walked with many miles of man
And I’ve talked to many faces
Refuse to understand because I’m scared
I run, I crawl – beneath it all
Life’s hard I’m told

I’m makin’ change; I swear to me
You won’t complain about misery
What do you know about lonely?
You have everyone you need
What do you know? You’re happy
My soul is sliced with greed

Well I do believe I will receive
From you, and you, and you, and you (Oh!)

I’m makin’ change; I swear to me
You can’t complain about misery
What do you know about lonely?
You have everyone you need
What do you know? You’re happy
My soul is sliced with greed


Sea Blue

Sky is clearin’
City scrapes my eyes
Ocean is not movin’
I cry

Wind blows through the doorway
It chills me to the core
Sea blue on the horizon
I can’t feel blue for that much longer

So pack up your belongings
And crystallize your conscience
To live for love is clearly nonsense
We seem to need a whole lot more

The world’s steady population
Defines that you’re the only one
Been fooled my many imitations
I’m done
I’m done

So kiss the world goodnight now
It’s you I want to hold
Rain at my window
These walls don’t shelter cold

So pack up your belongings
And crystallize your conscience
To live for love is clearly nonsense
We seem to need a whole lot more

(guitar)

So pack up your belongings
And crystallize your conscience
To live for love is clearly nonsense
We seem to need a whole lot more

The sky is clearin’
City scrapes on lies
Ocean is not movin’
I cry


Soho Whores

Pray away, track slow, lookin’ back, disappearin’ doors
Soho Whores, mean gettin’ eatin’ out
Got a dirty mouth
Husband leavin’ girl at home with the children all alone
Whores, hoes – every good man knows family comes first
Oh, sex in a different life, don’t tell the wife

Don’t tell the wife! (x7)

Lookin’ at an empty glass, cigarette done, wishin’ you were young
Back in your childhood, when your face looked good
You didn’t have a care in the world
Cause whores, hoes – every good man knows family comes first
Oh, sex in a different life, don’t tell the wife

Don’t tell the wife! (x7)

People on the train, miserable; can you feel their pain?
Puttin’ on a fake smile, old man, no plan, wishin’ he had a soho girl
Cause whores, hoes – every good man knows family comes first
Oh, sex in a different life, don’t tell the wife

Don’t tell the wife! (x14)
(guitar)
Don’t tell the wife! (x7)

So What

Dad, I don’t want to make you sad
Which manifests to mad
Soon you’ll be proud
Belief is all that I have left
It’s what I started with
It’s what I’ll leave behind

So what
I haven’t got your job
So what
I am what you are not
So what
This is my story
I can’t live for your glory
Your cotton shadow bores me
I won’t let you employ me yet

So what (x2)

Mum, look what I’ve become
Excuses on my tongue
Are wearin’ thin
Love is all that I’m about
I’ve got to let it out
Before it brings me down

So what
I haven’t got a job
So what
I am what you are not
So what
This is my story
I can’t live for your glory
Your music shadow bores me
I won’t let you deploy me yet

So what?
So what now?
So what?
So what have I become?

So what
I’ve got to get a job
So what
Start singing my songs
So what
No time for stories
This planet keeps revolvin’
But through all the children that share this problem dream
So what?
So what am I supposed to do?
So what?
So what now?

Too Far Gone

So you come to me
For rest in my heart (rest in my heart)
It’s all you want
I haven’t seen you lately
But you still call me baby
What about my name?

So I stand to
Save your soul
Yes, I stand to
Save your soul
Before you’re too far gone
Before nothin’ can be done

When I shoulda lied and when I…
When I shoulda tried and when I…
When I had no fight in me
And the whole world was screaming
Hold on, screamin’ hold on

So I come to you
For rest in your heart (rest in your heart)
It’s all you want
Well you’ve learned to hate me
But you still call me baby
I guess you forgot my name

But still I stand to
Save your soul
Yes, I stand to
Save your soul
Before you’re too far gone
Before nothing can be done

When I shoulda lied and when I…
When I shoulda tried and when I…
When I had no fight in me
And the whole world was screamin’
Hold on, screamin’ hold on

Girl, you got it (got it) all
So hold on
But you got it (got it) all
So wrong
(x10)

But you got it all
So hold on
But you got (got it) all
So wrong
But you got it (got it) all
So hold on
But you’re just too far gone


You Think You’re Free

You think you’re free
But you ain’t free at all
I’m underneath woman when you fall and
Think I’m wrong, but I ain’t wrong at all
I just know and that’s part of the problem
Held down by their religion
Some twisted minds and pre-made decision and
Goin’ for a head-on collision, don’t wanna be the wall

So I’ll stand aside, let you feel the ride
I’ll close my eyes and pretend
When I say that you’re free babe
It’s just a lie
It’s just a lie

You think you’re free
But you ain’t free at all
I’m underneath darlin’ when you fall and
Think I’m wrong, but I ain’t wrong at all
I just know and that’s part of the problem

Freedom’s not runnin’ away
You are, but I wish you’d stay and now
I’m on my own, I still got you
But it’s all wrong
So I’ll stand aside and let you feel the ride
I’ll close my eyes and pretend
But when I say that you’re free babe
It’s just a lie
It’s just a lie

Think you’re free, but you ain’t free at all
I’m underneath lover when you fall and
Think I’m wrong, but I ain’t wrong at all
I just know and that’s part of the problem

Think you’re free, but you ain’t free at all
I’m underneath lover when you fall and
Think I’m wrong, but I ain’t wrong at all
I just know and that’s part of the problem
I’ll stand aside, let you feel the ride
I’ll close my eyes and pretend
But when I say that you’re free babe
It’s just a lie
It’s just a lie
It’s just a lie!

You think you’re free, but you ain’t free at all
I’m underneath woman when you fall and
Think I’m wrong, but I ain’t wrong at all
I just know and that’s part of the problem

Think you’re free, but you ain’t free at all
I’m underneath lover when you fall and
Think I’m wrong, but I ain’t wrong at all
I just know and that’s part of the problem

(x4)
Think you’re free, but you ain’t free at all
(You think you’re free)
I’m underneath lover when you fall and
(But you ain’t free at all)
Think I’m wrong, but I ain’t wrong at all
I just know and that’s part of the problem

You think you’re free, but you ain’t free at all
I’m underneath lover when you fall


Whiskey

It’s easy
Oh so easy
To please me
With some feeling your word is
All I’ve ever asked for

So can you feel me?
If you did you wouldn’t tease me
There’s no other that can please me
Because I haven’t let them in

So just walk away
And just talk your way
Into someone else’s house
Yeah just walk away
And just talk your way
Into someone else’s house

Now I’m lonely
Only tryin’ to find my sound
And I borrowed this song
To let it out
Oh, I’m lonely, oh so lonely
But whiskey is always my friend

Will I ever be happy?
It’s so easy to be happy
I just have to stop feelin’ sorry
For myself
Oh, I can fix that
I know I can, I can change that
But will I ever really do that
And lose my best friend

So I think away and just drink my way
Into someone else’s mouth
Yeah, I think away and just drink my way
Into someone else’s mouth

Now I’m lonely, only tryin’ to find my sound
And I borrowed this song to let it out
Oh I’m lonely, oh so lonely
But whiskey is always my friend
Whiskey is always my friend


Wide Open

Well I’m wide open
This season
I’ve turned my life around
I trust no one
With reason
I reasoned who I am

Well I’m not running
I’m just accepting
Don’t feel that fate has taught me here
Their my decisions
That I live in
My mind has never been this clear

Well I’m wide open
The statement
Scares the boy in me
To feel the safety
Of reason
Heals me incomplete

Well I’m not running
I’m just accepting
Don’t feel that fate has taught me here
Their my decisions
That I live in
My mind has never been this clear
No I have never been this clear
