In the End

The more of this noise that I perceive
The harder it is for me to believe
It’s too much with the hatred, it’s too much with the you-versus-me
It’s too much of pretending the truth is too veiled to see

It’s hard enough
It’s hard to transcend
Sometimes we all need a shoulder
And we’re all we’ve got in the end

I can’t say I understand
Locking the gates ’round the promised land
It’s too much with divisions, it’s too much with the lines in the sand
It’s too much with the torches and pitchforks in all our hands

It’s hard enough
It’s hard to transcend
Sometimes we all need a shoulder
And we’re all we’ve got
Sometimes we all need a shoulder
And we’re all we’ve got in the end

If I Fell


You took my hand, took me under your wing
So smart, so funny, so perfect at everything
All I thought I could never be
Try to live up to what you see in me

But sometimes the climb’s so steep
The clouds shroud a peak out of reach

If I fell
Would you save me
Or close my memory in a file
Buried under lock and key?

I’m not blind, naive, or innocent
I’m not the first to think you’re heaven sent
But yesterday means nothing to me
It’s left its scars and set us free

But some nights the light’s so weak
The next step ahead so hard to see

If I fell
Would you save me
Or close my memory in a file
Buried under lock and key
And if I fell
Would you catch me
Or just write beside my name
“What might have been…”?

A heart alone too long
Don’t know what it can and can’t believe
If your love, your love was just a dream
Then let me sleep, let me sleep

If I fell
Would you wake me
And tell me it’s all right
I’ve got you, baby?

I’ve got you
I’ve got you, baby

Autumn Waltz


And it’s hard to remember these days
The way it all held me in
The thrill of skin on skin

And it’s hard to recall the way
Time could move so slow
In your arms that long ago

And I wish I could fall in love
Like I did once before
But my heart it don’t beat the same
My heart, it don’t beat the same
…anymore

And you said love was a mystery
Hearts and hopes, they change
Just leaves on an autumn day

I know it’s all history
Memories to shut away
No point in trying to explain

That I wish I could fall in love
Like I did once before
But my heart, it don’t beat the same
My heart, it don’t beat the same
…anymore
