Lyrics

HERE TONIGHT

Sinking and sinking further from the surface
Subconscious at first; it wasn’t on purpose
Under my own conniving sea
In any other ocean I hoped you’d find me

…and here tonight
I promise I’ll make it alright
We’re here tonight

Treading so hard to stay above the water
So many times you thought “why bother”
and this time you thought you’d throw it all away
Until it’s all gone away

…and here tonight
I promise I’ll make it alright
We’re here tonight

It won’t always be the same
I won’t let this end in vain
No more drowning in any more pain
Only we remain

Only we remain

LIVE ANOTHER DAY

I built my wall again, nothing going out or coming in,
Ignored the monster, the mess of words unspoken
On the surface, the nonsense, the meaningless
The air surrounding might choke us both

It can’t be that hard to say; it won’t be that hard to take

Your wall was up too, impossible to see right through
You arrived just in time, the story you gave, the catalyst to come by
Your reason to leave was waiting outside
This might be the last time, the last time

It can’t be that hard to say; it won’t be that hard to take
I’m expecting it anyway, we’ll do this your way
And we’ll both go on to live another day

Release the ivory from this place,
your dignity intact, you’ll leave with no disgrace

It can’t be that hard to say; it won’t be that hard to take
I’m expecting it anyway, we’ll do this your way
And we’ll both go on to live another day
We’ll both find love another day
Not now, not today

MASKED

It wasn’t so long ago
You were pushed back
So many words you had to retract

Like you paid for your heart
Stole all your love
Sent it all below, but kept searching above

Those words are haunting
There’s no more hiding under your…

Hiding’s such an innocent game
You think no one knows where your secrets remain
Have you ever thought to look inside… deep down inside?

Hear that sound ringing in your ears?
It’s the door creaking open to your darkest fears
The truth is coming but you don’t know when
Can you pull it together again?

Those words are haunting
But you had to ask
There’s no more hiding
Under your mask

You call to summon the clouds and try to make it rain
Rinse away the verity that you always feign
At least your colors are as bright as they’ve always been
Will you pull it together again?

Those words are haunting
But you had to ask
There’s no more hiding under your…

SULLEN HEARTS

You seem so far away
Like you’re waiting for a rainy day
Color me all the shades of gray

I hardly knew a thing
While I sat here waiting
Thought you were everything

Find a new place to roam
A place that you can call home
Time will wash your scars away
You’ll sing your song again someday

Words seem so far away
Sullen hearts know what to say
Only after they’re led astray

This too will come to pass
If we slow down
And stop moving so fast

Too heavy to hold
Too hardened to mold
The burden you carry pleads to be let go
