When We Get To Where We Go

I can’t wait for the day that I’m a part
of seeing more than where I came from
I’m sure I’d never hesitate to leave myself behind
In hopes of finding someone better than myself

I don’t know who’ll all be there when we drive away
But I’ll miss you all when we get to where we go
I don’t know who I’ll be when I sit down and buckle in
But I’ll miss him when we get to where we go

I don’t know if I’ll have a camera or just a pen and paper
But I’ll catch everything you say when you look my way
Pour it out and start again, take your time tonight
We’ll have more than just tomorrow to find a place to stay

I don’t know who’ll all be there when we drive away
But I’ll miss you all when we get to where we go
I don’t know who I’ll be when I sit down and buckle in
But I’ll miss him when we get to where we go

I am going to change when we get to where we go
It will all be for the better and we’ll leave behind the worst
I am going to change when we get to where we go
I am going to live when we get to where we go

Have You Seen My Heart?

Have you seen my heart
Because I think it was looking for you
Even when so recently
It might not have known your name

Have you seen my heart
Because I’m not so sure that I have
And now after all this time
It beat so hard it broke my chest

Have you seen my heart
Because I’ve been passing it around
Even when I thought
I’d locked it up and ate the key

Have you seen my heart
Because I’m sure I’d let you take it
If you’d share some of yours with me

Do I Want You

For how many nights will I hesitate
To fall asleep just thinking of you
From how many dreams have I come awake
Knowing how much of you I don’t deserve

Do I want you..
Do I want you..

How many webs will I weave
Through tangled tears and watered eyes
The cryptic words speak loud and clear
But what I can’t get out is what I feel for you

Do I want you..
Do I want you..

I Hope The Road Doesn’t Stop

I’ve seen your smile light up the room
but it may have passed me by
I’ve been thinking that maybe it’s time
That I could have a chance to meet your eyes

I hope the road doesn’t stop tonight
When we go for a ride
Just me and you this time
I hope the road doesn’t stop tonight
So you know that I’ll always be by your side

I’ve seen your tears fall to the ground
but I may have passed it by
I’ve been hoping to go back in time
And I could take the chance to meet your eyes

And now ever since that old song on the radio
I’ve been wanting to sing you these lines
Hey wait, I want to take you for a ride
I’ll be the one who’ll be by your side

I hope the road doesn’t stop tonight
When we go for a ride
Just me and you this time
I hope the road doesn’t stop tonight
So you know that I’ll always be by your side

Read behind the words

Closets

What a small space to keep yourself in
Hidden from all the outside
We walk past not noticing but would we
Maybe, if that door made a better window
I don’t know how to open it up

Let’s open it up! Run away!
Into the light! Into the fight!
Let’s not keep ourselves
Closed up in closets
For the rest of our lives

Somehow I turned my back to the door
Of my little old room inside of this world
They walk past not noticing, but would they
Maybe, if my back was turned to myself
I don’t know how to open me up

Let’s open it up! Run away!
Into the light! Into the fight!
Let’s not keep ourselves
Closed up in closets

For the rest of our lives

Let’s open it up
Let’s open it up

Let’s open it up! Run away!
Into the light and into the fight
Let’s not keep ourselves
Closed up in closets
No, let’s not keep ourselves
Closed up in closets
Closed up in closets
For the rest of our lives
