IDEA 5  (instrumental)

BACK AND FORTH

TIE ME DOWN

 

THE GOOD FIGHT

You ask me for some direction

As if i know my way around

But you’re not aiming for higher ground

So why should i pull the trigger?

You come in my room

Take off my clothes

Slip out the back door so nobody could know

I cry your name, but you ignore me

I beg for time and you show me no mercy

 

I’m sorry love i must leave you tonight

There’s just something i can’t get from you

I’m giving up.

I can’t fight the good fight

Though i leave pretend it’s alright

I’ll return in a matter of time

 

With all your moves and your intentions

There’s holes that crept up on this bridge

With this disaster how can we get by?

When you’re stuck on the other side

I cry out but you don’t hear me

Moving on comes to you so quickly

Remember my name cause you’ll be waiting

It’ll be my time and yours is taken

 

I’m sorry love i must leave you tonight

There’s just something i can’t get from you

I’m giving up.

I can’t fight the good fight

Though i leave pretend it’s alright

I’ll return in a matter of time

There’s just something i can’t get from you

(you’ll return in a matter of time)

There’s just something i can’t get from you

(you’ll return in a matter of time)

 

 

SAN JOSE

I gave you four years off my half ass love

I was a child and I chose to run

You really love me

Like no one had loved me

I left you broken

I fled to the city

My cold heart. My cold feet

You haunt me

Oh, you  haunt me

My cold heart

My cold feet

Oh, you haunt me

Oh, you haunt me

Do you know the way to  San Jose?

Cause i can’t go there anymore

Where do you go

When you don’t have a home

Where do i go now?

I don’t have a home

My cold heart. My cold feet

You haunt me

Oh, you  haunt me

My cold heart

My cold feet

Oh, you haunt me

Oh, you haunt me

The soul flew out your body

Right in front of me

And i called your name

I called your name

Oh, it haunts me

Oh, it haunts me

I call your name 

My cold heart. My cold feet

You haunt me

Oh, you  haunt me

My cold heart

My cold feet

Oh, you haunt me

 

CIVIL WAR

There’s a river that flows

From your brain down to your chest

A sinking ship, with no safety vests

How it flows

Nobody could know

By now…

They should’ve come around

The lines are drawn

Cannons locked and raised arms

 

My head. My heart.

Are raging a civil war

My head. My heart

Are raging a civil war

My head. My heart

 

Will you go down

With the captain still on board

Or run away to safety on the shore

Cause i need

A light to guide me home

But you’re just as lost

Capsizing on your own

The lines are drawn

Cannons locked and raised arms

 

My head. My heart.

Are raging a civil war

My head. My heart

Are raging a civil war

My head. My heart

My head. My heart…

 

WATER IN THE WELL

It’s been forty days

Oh, and forty nights…

Since i felt my faith

Since i’ve seen the light

We’ve come so far

A ceiling made of stars

Can we go back to the start?

Cause i don’t feel my heartbeat anymore

I’m thirsty now

Can i drink from your well?

I’m thirsty now

Can i drink from your well?

 

It’s been forty days

Oh, and forty nights

Since i’ve held your face

Since I’ve held you tight

We’ve come too far

Don’t lose who we are

Can we go back to the start?

Cause i don’t feel my heartbeat anymore

 

I’m thirsty now

Can i drink from your well?

I’m thirsty now

Can i drink from your well?

How can you save me now?

There’s no water in your well

How can you save me now?

There’s no water in your well

 

OPEN ROAD

Let's buy a van

Pack our clothes

And hit the open road

Let's trade our maps

Know that home is wherever our feet go

You are mine (let's sail away)

You are mine (let's sail away) 

Oh, know that home is wherever our feet go

Oh, know that home is wherever our feet go

Let's buy a van

Pack our clothes

And hit the open road

Let's trade our maps

Know that home is wherever our feet go

From Phoenix to Tennessee

I'm not lost if I'm in your company

We're not waiting for old and grey

And wanting back these days

Wanting back these days...

Come on boys! 

Oh, know that home is wherever our feet go

Oh, know that home is wherever our feet go

 

BACK AND FORTH

You say I need you

I say I'll keep you for all of my days

Why are you surprised with the look in my eyes

When you walked away

 

Back and forth we go again

Where you start, I will end

But I don't mind, I don't mind

Drive across the country, miles between you and me

But I don't mind, I don't mind

A little bird came to me shouting little victories

You'll be fine, You'll be fine

 

You say I leave you

I say I need you til' my hair turns grey

But as much as I had you

There's things we cannot do

That got in the way

 

Back and forth we go again

Where you start, I will end

But I don't mind, I don't mind

Drive across the country, miles between you and me

But I don't mind, I don't mind

A little bird came to me shouting little victories

You'll be fine, You'll be fine

Oh my, Oh me

You pull like the moon

I move like the sea

Oh my, Oh me

You pull like the moon

I move like the sea

 

TIE ME DOWN

A traveling home

The only road I know

A gypsy soul with wanderers bones

Waking in your sheets  in this city

Why am I leaving?

When I found my something

 

How do you tie me down? 

The world moves so quickly now

How do you tie me down?

The world moves so quickly now

 

I miss the foothills

I can't pay my bills

But we'll move to New York

And hope that this might work

 

How do you tie me down?

The world moves so quickly now

How do you tie me down?

The world moves so quickly

 

I'm coming home

I'm coming home

I need to lie with your bones.
