>> 613 Shades Of Sad

What I say when I say that I miss you
Is that I will always love me more
What I need when I bleed just to drown you
Is that someday you’ll become a shore

It’s my wave that will crave and will pull you
And another that will push you back
We will be just a sea they can sail through
They can split us but we never crack

On occasions our sea will swallow
613 shades of sad
And occasionally we’ll be just shallow
Enough for them to see the things we had
20,000 different leagues of sorrow
They will surface but we’ll let them drown
And the moon will lift our holy bodies
And we’ll live as one

With the rate and the weight that I pound you
You will tell me that you understand
Every shell I’ll propel just to spite you
You will break it and you’ll turn to sand

We will be just a sea and a shoreline
We won’t need no words, we’ll have the tide
I will bleed and I’ll plead that I miss you
Even though you’ll never leave my side

 

>> Every Body

Everybody wants somebody
A little more than they should
Everybody’d take that body
If Everybody could
Everybody makes mistakes
Everybody hides
Everybody’d write these words
If Everybody’d hide
Everybody needs somebody
To warm them up at night
I guess a blanket’s not enough
When turning off the light
Everybody hurts and cries
Everybody dies
Every love cuts deep and cold
And breaks you down inside
Everybody else’s grass is greener
Everybody else’s wife is sweeter
Everybody wears their boots
Until the sole runs dull
And Everybody’s ears are itching
From waiting for the toll
Everybody says they’re sorry
And means it from the bone
Everybody never say it
Until they are alone
Everybody knows the score
Still want to see the game
Everybody clutch their lives
Like fifteen minute fame
Everybody says they’re sorry
Still no one there replies
Everybody made mistakes but
Everybody made mistakes but
So did everybody else from time to time

 

>> Left Behind

Summer sun is setting
And the grass is turning gold
Another season’s changing
And I’m just getting old.

The autumn leaves are raining
And it’s a sparrow’s time to fall
Another season’s fading
And I’m just getting old.

If you ever find a way
To run as fast as time
You will find the wind that’s blowing
You tell her I was left behind.

The winter frost is biting
Even the trees outside are cold
Another season’s changing
I’m just getting old.

The seeds of springs are spreading
With love no man can hold
Another season’s changing
And I’m just getting old.

If you ever find a way
To run as fast as time
You will find the wind that’s blowing
You tell her I was left behind

You tell her I was left behind
You tell her I was left behind
Ah, tell her I was left behind
Please, tell her I… was left behind.

 

>> Your Anchor

She said baby you’re my gold
I said no babe, just your banker
She said baby you’re my chains
I said no hun I’m your anchor
I said baby you’re my wings
She said no babe, you’re a fish
I said baby you’re my dream
She said no hun, just your wish

She said baby you’re my river
I said no hun, I’m your drain
She said baby you’re my color
I said no babe I’m your stain
I said baby you’re my diamond
She said no babe, just your pick
I said baby you are magic
She said no jun, just a trick

She said baby you can see me
I said baby i just sense
She said baby you’re my castle
I said no hun, I’m your fence
I said baby you’re my lover
She said no hun, just your maid
I said baby i adore you
She said no babe, you’re just afraid
