Once there was a woman that I use to love But she left me waiting by the sun here on the sand out in the sea I watch the waves and the shapes they create how the push move and change Manipulate the world ever so slightly reaching out to touch me I’ve been touched by the hands of god isn’t that good enough I tried to trust I cant won’t never not gonna fall in love No not again without permission from a vision from up above Oh sweet heart what is it this time I want the truth no lies of any kind Answers explanations that just don’t exist I suppose if you really just want me to forget I possibly maybe could just settle for one last kiss From your lovely beautiful lips

I used to have a lover yeah she used to love me Things are different now you know she’s a memory She never could seem to make me smile Happiness drifted after a while I became distant like a foreign country Japan, France, or Harrisonville Missouri Ah Oh darling don’t go don’t leave me all alone If you go so will my son and I will be the only one I didn’t mean to break her broken heart All I was trying not to do was fall apart Now that she’s gone my world has changed My whole life has been rearranged oh I’ve been lost in some one else's dreams I’m tired of trying to find out who I’m supposed to be ah Oh darling don’t go don’t leave me all alone If you go, so will my son and I will be the only one I gave up on sleep it don’t work anymore I avoid the dreams I used to adore When I walk alone in the middle of the night I always burn out all the streetlights I don’t like who it is I have become lost alone angry empty and numb ah yeah Oh darling don’t go don’t leave me all alone If you go so will my son and I will be the only one

Well it’s like love but it’s more like science fiction Or some sort of strange you know drug addiction I don’t even know who I am anymore what have I done? Who have I become? This is not who I am This is not no I said it is not this is not who I am Hey you are you listening to me I love you but I can’t say that I am in love no I love you but I can’t say I’m in love And I don’t know if there is another way maybe you and I yeah maybe some day We will change and we will be different people yeah who feel differently But until then I’m sorry you know I just can’t see what it is you want me to believe And this comfort zone is like a delusional dream Just because it’s comfortable doesn’t mean a thing I love you like a tree does the ground But I constantly feel like my life is upside down Hey you are you listening to me I love you but I can’t say that I am in love no I love you but I can’t say I’m in love And I don’t know if there is another way maybe you and I yeah maybe some day We will change and we will be different people yeah who feel differently But until then I’m sorry you know I just can’t see what it is you want me to believe You know people take that whole revenge thing to far Being resentful only kills the heart what have we done? Who have we become? This is not who we are This is not no I said it is not this is not who we are Hey you are you listening to me I love you but I can’t say that I am in love no I love you but I can’t say I’m in love Anymore

In my head it was a symphony I gave it all up and sold it for free Everything you want is impossible for me You want true love you want romance Darling I would learn how to dance If I thought our future ever had a chance I’ll tell you the secrets of the universe A key to unlock any witches curse Every move you make only makes it worse I won’t pretend I’m jealous man I’ll slide the diamond off the skeletons hand Remove you from this world open the door to another land And you won’t believe me that’s nothing new what the hell am I suppose to do Nothings ever good enough for you nothings ever good enough for you Nothings ever good enough for you I will trust you one day maybe never As far as I could throw a feather My mental state of mind changes like the weather I could read you prose and poetry On a beach some where underneath a tree Forget about the past a mental tragedy I may be a delicate man but I am not a lamb The truth is after all these years you don’t even know who I am And if you really don’t want me here it’s all right I can disappear For the first time in my life everything is so clear You won’t believe me that’s nothing new what the hell am I suppose to do when Nothings ever good enough for you no nothings ever good enough for you Nothings ever good enough for you no nothings ever good enough for you Nothings ever good enough for you you will never know who I am You will never know who I am you will never know who I am You will never know who I am you will never know who I am

I’ve got nothing no complaints for all I’ve had I lost my mother and well you know my dad For the life he had he did the best he could But he didn’t do a damn thing like he should I gave up living life at home And a girl who always likes to talk on the phone She doesn’t love me but she likes to pretend I left her hanging out on the other end Oh babe don’t do this to me hold me responsible for what you believe A true love fantasy that I can’t see a mirage on the hill in the cemetery I got an ocean view and a summer breeze underneath the birch tree watching the leaves falling like an acrobat from a trapeze Oh babe what do you want from me I need a vacation from the land upstairs You don’t understand you know and I don’t care Just because your folks didn’t treat you right Doesn’t give any reason to hangout and fight I’m depressed sick and sad from all of the lies You treat me like an enemy why am I surprised Searching for the parents that we never had Your not my mother and I’ll never be your dad Oh babe don’t do this to me hold me responsible for what you believe A true love fantasy that I can’t see a mirage on the hill in the cemetery I got an ocean view and a summer breeze underneath the birch tree watching the leaves falling like an acrobat from a trapeze Oh babe what do you want from me If you think you thought you had it all worked out Well there are some shadows and there are some doubts Jesus what that hell is it you want from me I got people places and things to see Darling listen closely when you tell me good bye This will be the last time you ever lie I’ve got more important things to do with my life Than have you convince me that you are my wife Oh babe don’t do this to me hold me responsible for what you believe A true love fantasy that I can’t see a mirage on the hill in the cemetery I got an ocean view and a summer breeze underneath the birch tree watching the leaves falling like an acrobat from a trapeze Oh babe what do you want from me Suicide is one thing darling but this I can’t believe You hold me hostage and threaten me your gonna kill yourself if I leave

Gone outside went for a walk I’m losing track of time Everything is backwards inside of the head or maybe it’s in the mind I question myself about the choices I’ve made was it her fault or mine I guess it’s hard to really know you sold me a person and you gave me a ghost and you want me to stop building the wall well I’ve built it so well it will never fall Apart of me wants me to believe You don’t want me I know that you want me I know that you want me I know that you want me to be somebody else I gave up giving into you You don’t want to listen you don’t want the truth You can’t convince me to see it your way You want to talk to me but there is nothing to say Another chance another chance you beg and plead You broke my heart your gonna have to leave And you want me to stop building the wall well I told you already it will never fall Apart of me wants me to believe You don’t want me I know that you want me I know that you want me I know that you want me to be somebody else Yeah, ok The sound of the water against the land Eases the mind inside if the man I’m feeling much better know that I’m not here I told you I was gonna have to disappear When I jumped out of the moving car You knew what you were doing you pushed too far And you want me to stop building the wall Well it’s too late now it will never fall Apart of me wants me to believe You don’t want me I know that you want me I know that you want me I know that you want me to be somebody else What ever there was is gone for good Even if it’s not I don’t think I could This emotional trade is not for me You can have what you want here’s what I need You guessed right when you said I was wrong it’s all my fault and I will soon be gone

If it wasn’t over well I know it is now this time for sure My heart is heavy like a red cloud in the sky Waiting to rain like a tear in my eye No going back no changing the past What’s done is done and that is that And I know that you’re sorry And you want another chance But darling I’m telling you there’s no romance In my soul my heart or head all the dreams I had last night in bed I wished I could go back into the past and erase you from my thoughts finally at last I don’t want to do with myself anymore I’d love to see the ocean But I can’t even afford The bus fare from here to there Everything is changing and oh my god I’m scared I’ve been thinking about the world myself and pretty girls How they have no effect on me anymore I’ve rehashed the past and looked at photographs And hurt myself in the head And I can’t convince myself I’ve made the right choice In the middle of the night I still here your voice And I know that you want another chance But darling I’m telling you there is no romance In my soul my heart or head all the dreams I had last night in bed I wished I could go back into the past and erase you from my thoughts finally at last I don’t want to do with myself anymore I’d love to see the ocean but I can’t afford to go anywhere let alone from here to there Everything is changing and I no longer care If it wasn’t over well I know it is now this time for sure With out a doubt in my mind this will most likely be the very last time

I should not have seen this as a sign I will let you in I will start if you begin please unlock the door Is it god fate true love or hate I can’t relate to you anymore? I should not have seen this as a sign in my mind When you came back from the other side of the world Once again you became my girl Everything was perfect every was new and I fell in love again with you I should not have seen this as a sign in my mind I want to love you and let you learn and all that I wanted was love in return Is it god fate true love or hate I can’t relate to you anymore I should not have seen this as a sign in my mind Over the Atlantic and under the sun you are and angel and I’m not the one How could this be I can’t believe this is I’m am I will never be Who and what you will ever need I tried I failed I died and I will bleed Is it god fate true love or hate I can’t relate to you anymore And the criminal he came and he stole your last name And the ring stainless steel tension set diamonds I gave to you last spring

Underneath a tree in the night in the dark All alone in an empty lonely park You and I yeah we stare at the stars we fall asleep inside the car On the night that we fell in Love In Love All the things that use to matter and mean so much Have slipped away or I am out of touch Either way it doesn’t matter and I just don’t care You look so pretty with flowers on your hair I’m in Love with you will you marry me I’ve been lost for a long but somehow finally Every little thing is gonna be OK Even if it’s not well it only seems that way Oh my darling my baby doll I hope this never stops I love the feeling of the fall the fall As long as we don’t look too deep to destroy The magic of the moment we will always enjoy The future of what that we can’t see What ever it is well it’s good enough for me As long as I have you I will have what I need As long as I have you I will always believe in love

I can feel your jealousy a guilty trip your trying to put me on I don’t even know what it is I’ve done or who it is you want me to become You say all you want is in my head You know it feels more like to me you’d rather just have me dead If this is not what you really want stop telling me to go before I’m gone One last chance I tried to give you want to ruin a life well you got your own to live You’ve pushed me just a little bit too far this time Please don’t do this to me again I’m trying to be in love I’m trying to pretend Everything is cool you know everything is fine I’m in control of your life you are of mine If you think that these lies are the kind the fly Your gonna have yourself another story to tell before you die Yeah I don’t know what you want from me now I don’t know what you want oh Ok I’m sorry I give up you win What do you want from me I’m trying to love you just pretend Everything is cool you know everything is fine I’m in control of your life what the hell are you doing with mine You dissolved my heart and so quickly replaced with the feeling of emptiness and Negative oh space Yeah I don’t know what you want from me now I don’t know what you want from me I don’t know what you want Oh My God Come a little closer you know listen to me If you think your gonna get off with this Scott free You got another thing coming your way There is a word for these kinds of mistakes I told you way back right from the start How it had to be or I would fall apart

Your eye’s remind me of a time when I could not see the ocean is inside of me I could swim forever as long as you never ever are going to leave me Oh darling what would I do if I didn’t have you to hold on to What would be nothing no one Just another some one lost in the sea Why you don’t believe me I will never understand the world they left to me oh god With all thoughts one could think I could dream forever as long as you never Ever were going to leave me Oh darling what would I do if I didn’t have you to hold on to What would be nothing no one Just another some one lost in the in the mystery Your love reminds me of a time when I could not breathe with all the air in the sky I could fly forever as long as you never ever are going to leave me Oh darling what would I do if I didn’t have you to hold on to What would be nothing no one Just another some one lost in the breeze
