From the First Time (I’ve been looking forward to the next)

From the beginning, from the first time
I was looking forward to the next time, the next time
I knew that you were always there for me
And that you would be till the last time

At last, time turns, and it turns out
That you have done so much for me
And me, I need for you to please
Please keep being there for me

I know it now like I never did
That I’ve always felt at home down the street
I think I’ve learned all that I know
After walking through your doors
And I must say, it’s been a while since the first time

And time, it turns, as it turns out
And things down here might fade, fade away
But that’s not what we were made to be
So I thank God that you’ve changed me for eternity

I’ve been thinking when the last time will turn
But the last time won’t come with you and me
Because time and space cannot separate what is made for forever
Time can turn, but it turns out that forever, you’ll be there for me!

I know it now, like I never did
That you have always made me feel at home
I think I’ve learned all that I know
After walking through your doors
And I must say

Through all the times we shared
From the first to the last
As time turns, we’ll see what’s to come
You welcomed me in, and it was more than enough

From the beginning, from the first time
I’ve been looking forward to the next

Hard to Take

Dragged outside one dark and lonely night
My head’s not where it was supposed to be
Rolling around, blind and cold in the street
Tell me what I need to get back on my feet

I’m not right, and it’s not like I’m just noticing
I’m not right, I hardly know the ones I love
I’m not right, and you know it’s hard to take

I can relate to an old song that plays
Of remorse and sorrow, empty and hollow
Never saw words choke quite like mine
These past few days, it’s out of line

I’m not right, and it’s not like I’m just noticing
I’m not right, I hardly know the ones I love
I’m not right, and you know it’s hard to take

Searching for the words to say
I slip and fall
Wondering what thoughts to think
I slink and crawl
Only have these words to pray
Please take it all

Something About You

You can make me do what I’ve never done before
And what I don’t have what it takes to do on my own
Because yeah, I’m scared like that
And you’re the one who seems to take it away

You can make me dance and sing or walk with my eyes closed
You can make me jump and scream, be crazy like I’ve never been
Because yeah, I’m scared on my own
But you’re the one who seems to take it away

Together I think we could fly, you and I
I don’t know why but there’s just something about you
Something about you, something about you

You can make me run away and climb down
The side of my house, just let me see those eyes
And all else will fade and I couldn’t tell you exactly why
But I just seem to be able to do anything at all

You can make me dance and sing or walk with my eyes closed
You can make me jump and scream, be crazy like I’ve never been

You can make me fall and roll down these hills just to climb them again
You can make me jump off a bridge just to bounce back up
Because you say this rope that locks my legs will save me
You can make me fall from the sky, and I still don’t know why

Together I think we could fly, you and I
I don’t know why, but there’s just something about you
Something about you, something about you

Something about you I have never seen
Something about you acts just like a key to me
Something about you opens me up and sets me free

Read behind the words

What Can I Say?

I want to dwell on this, but I don’t think I should
It’s just that all these things you make me think
Makes me think I know that you don’t want me here

It’s been a while, I know, but I’d rather have someone who cares
Don’t you think I’d think this way, I know
Makes me think that you just have an excuse

What can I say
You can’t expect me to want something else
What can I say
I want someone who likes to see me smile

Take, stop, give, or break, I think it’s now or never
We can end this any time you see fitting
Because of course it’s an effort just to see me
Sometimes it seems, and you just won’t seem to care

What can I say
You can’t expect me to want something else
If you don’t go my way
I want someone who makes me smile when I cry

Thank You, My Friend, and Goodbye Again

I missed you ever since that day you left
And I’m only over it when your not in my head
Ever since that day I took your hand
Just to say goodbye, just to say goodbye

Our time used to mean so much to me
And now your gone, and now your gone
And could it be that after all these years
I’m seeing you again, seeing you again

And I just can’t say how much it means to me
That you’d take my hand back then
And that you’d take my hand today
mm mmhmm hmm, mm mmhmm mm

How real can this be, after two long years
That I’d see you again, like we never ever left
Best friends don’t seem to fall away
But sometimes they just get split apart

Oh, oh, did you cry like me
Oh, oh, did you lie awake like me
Oh, oh, did you want to go back like me

And I just can’t say how much it means to me
That you’d take my hand back then
And that you’d take my hand today
mm mmhmm hmm, mm mmhmm mm

If I’d only knew it would end again
If I knew I’d have to get you out of my head
If I’d only knew it would end again
I don’t know what I’d do
But I know I need to thank you
For being my best friend

Even if I never see you again
I’d like to thank you
For being my best friend

All these tears and all the trials
May bring us back to where we ended
And getting you out of my head
For the first time was hard enough
So this time I can say right to your eyes
Although there are tears in mine
I know that I won’t forget you
And even if I never see you again
I’d like to thank you
For being my best friend

Beg and Bleed

You brought me back on to the ground where I once stood so tall
I didn’t think I’d ever stand after I took that fall
But now I know and I believe that you are worth it all
With time it comes, with time it goes, and I finally answered the call

I haven’t seen you in forever, so thank you for coming back
Still you say hello, even with all I lack
I’m never there when you are lonely, it’s always been for me
So take me, break me, change me, save me from all that I see

I know that I love you and I’ll keep trying to love you more
But love has never told us what this love has in store
If I’m right, I’m right, then I can see I’m rotten to the core
Please, please, I beg and bleed, because I know what you asked for

Please, please, I beg and bleed, because I know what you asked for
Please, please, I beg and bleed, because I know what you asked for
When I can’t take it any more and I’ve fallen to the floor
I’ve never fell so hard as when I walked right out the door

You brought me back on to the ground where I once stood so tall
I didn’t think I’d ever stand after I took that fall
But now I know and I believe that you are worth it all
With time it comes, with time it goes, and I finally answered the call

I Like the Way You Walk

Didn’t even catch your name
I just liked the way you talk
And do you feel the same
When I say I like the way you walk

Well, if I saw you today, I don’t think you’d be impressed
I’m just another guy, and I blend in with the rest
There’s so much I could do to be better for you

I’ve worn these same pants for like a whole week straight
But then again maybe you can relate
Yeah, there’s so much I could do to be better for you

Didn’t even catch your name
I just liked the way you talk
And do you feel the same
When I say I like the way you walk

And I think I’ll let you know what all these words mean
See, tonight I’m singing about the girl I’m gonna marry
I don’t think I’ve met her, but I’m sure I’d like to

I kinda hope she’s singing the same kinda tune
Or maybe she’s hoping that I’m singing too
See, I don’t think I’ve met her, but I’m sure I’d like to

Didn’t even catch your name
I just liked the way you talk
And do you feel the same
When I say I like the way you walk

And when I meet you I won’t quite know what to do
I don’t think I should just ask, “can I marry you”
I’m really not sure what my first words could be
Maybe I’ll just say, “will you marry me”
