Myself through you

I’m seeing myself through you

'Bout time I saw your shade of blue

I’m watching myself stumble too

Inside, I won’t let go of you

I’m seeing myself through you

Well I get mad when I regret

All the words to you I never said

And I understand you had to run

From the songs I never sung

I’m seeing myself through you

'Bout time I saw your shade of blue

I’m watching myself stumble too

Inside, I won’t let go of you

I’m seeing myself through you

Don’t call me blind, don’t call me weak

Call me just another man at your feet

If I have to choose, who to be

Then i guess I’m choosing me

I’m seeing myself through you

Bout time I saw your shade of blue

I’m watching myself stumble too

Inside, I won’t let go of you

I’m seeing myself through you    

I know when it hurts really bad you lift me up, you lift me up

And despite of all the mess that we have you lift me up, so I know

It’s time to go, so I go

I’m seeing myself through you

I’m seeing myself through you

I’m seeing myself through you

 

'Bout I saw your shade of blue

I’m watching myself stumble too

Inside, I won’t let go of you

I’m seeing myself       

I’m seeing myself through you

Bout time I saw your shade of blue

I’m watching myself stumble too

Inside, I won’t let go of you

I’m seeing myself through, seeing myself through, seeing myself you


Born a preacer

I was born a preacher    

I was born a saint

I was born nothin that I ain't

I was born a lover

with a fire in his eyes

I was born into a world of lies    

And when I’m down and out rock bottom in the street        

I’m singing out with ill defeat    

For rising quickly like a fire in the night

Takes love, take spirit, and a fight,

Takes love, takes spirit, and a fight

I was born of David

Born in dixie too

Born different though I look like you

I was born a hater

With anger that burns within

And I’ll die and I’ll die buried with sins

And when I’m down and out rock bottom in the street

I’m singing out with ill defeat

For rising quickly like a fire in the night

Takes love, take spirit, and a fight,

Takes love, takes spirit, and a fight

Please hold me now

I am different somehow

I didn’t want to be, the man the set you free

But life Is funny sometimes

And when I’m down and out rock bottom in the street

I’m singing out with ill defeat

For rising quickly like a fire in the night

Takes love, take spirit, and a fight,

Takes love, takes spirit, and a fight

I was born a hater

With anger that burns within

And I’ll die and I’ll die buried with sins


golden

The weight of the world has told me that I am forsaken

My actions have proven them right when I lose my way

I show no regret on the dark roads that I have taken

It’s my time to choose the prices that I’m willing pay

For too long, For too long

For too long, I have been broken

When I fly away, F\fly away

Fly away to the land that’s been chosen

Then someone will see that I’m golden

Then someone will see that I’m golden

Seeking a path while the best of the present’s untaken

While looking for happy my now is completely delayed

Just one step will lead me to where my mind will awaken

Forget the past and the future and live for today

For too long, For too long

For too long, I have been broken

When I fly away, fly away

Fly away to the land that’s been chosen

Then someone will see that I’m golden

Then someone will see that I’m golden

Someone will see

Someone will see

Someone will see

For too long, gor too long

For too long, I have been broken

When fly away, Fly away

Fly away to the land that’s been chosen

Then someone will see that I’m golden

Then someone will see that I’m golden

Then someone will see that I’m golden

Then someone will see that I’m golden

Someone will see

Someone will see


Feels Like I've been shell shocked

Hurts good like hardcore medicine

For too long nothing's gone my way

Two years my mind has not stopped

Producing all false evidence why

It’s not up for me to say

It’s been too long since I’ve tried

It’s been too hard since you’ve died

Look at all this love

I like to act like I’m not

One who has hit a hard spot

'Cause look at all this love

Face feels like I just got clocked

Hurts good like hardcore medicine

The bruise reminds me why I stay

So hard to not just drop off

Leave town and face a reckoning

Scarred just right enough to play

It’s been too long since I’ve tried

It’s been too hard since you’ve died

Look at all this love

I like to act like I’m not

One who has hit a hard spot

'Cause look atll this love

It’s been too long since I’ve tried

It’s been too hard since you’ve died

Look at all this love

I like to act like I’m not

One who has hit a hard spot

'Cause look at all this love

'Cause look at all this love

'Cause look at all this love

'Cause look at all this love

Hardcore medicine


A car with no gas and a view of the rising sun

My demons are left in the past, they’re coming undone    

If you wanna wake up wake up!

If you wanna break down break down

Ahoy ahoy

A feeling the worst of the flood is still yet to come

The path I have chosen is paved in weed and rum    

If you wanna wake up wake up!    

If you wanna break down break down    

Ahoy ahoy

I’ll meet you in the end

When the curtain’s faded red

Catch my eyes see through the sound

I’m just a stranger in the crowd

Gold like the light on the roof of a treehouse in May

Clinging to moments which float in and out of the day

If you wanna wake up wake up!

If you wanna break down break down

Ahoy ahoy

I’ll meet you in the end

When the curtain’s faded red

Catch my eyes see through the sound

I’m just a stranger in the crowd

I’ll meet you in the end

When the curtain’s faded red

Catch my eyes see through the sound

I’m just a stranger in the crowd [this vocal blends into the harmonies starting next]

A car with no gas and a view of the rising sun

My demons are left in the past, they’re coming undone

faded red


Father say one more mean thing

I got thick skin and it helps me to sing

People please leave me alone

I got my purpose got back to your home

Brother you live so far away

We’re runnin’ from something what it is I can’t say

If I had no reason to live

I’d put pen to paper, make up for my sins

Sorry’s not the way to feel right now

Sorry’s not the way

Could be so much better

Sorry’s not the way to feel right now

Sorry’s not the way

Could be so much better

If I lived for one thousand years

There’d be time enough to face all of my fears

But death plays a joke on us all

One minute you’re standing, the next one you fall

Rose you live so far away

I feel like I’m helpless, but why I can’t say

I’ve now got my reason to live

To spread hope to family, my children and friends

Sorry’s not the way to feel right now

Sorry’s not the way

Could be so much better

Sorry’s not the way to feel right now

Sorry’s not the way

Could be so much better

If I should fall, would you be my savior

If I should fall, would you be my friend

If I should fall, would you be my witness

If I should fall would you be my end

Father say one more mean thing

I got thick skin and it helps me to sing

People please leave me alone

I got my purpose got back to your home

Rose you live so far away

I feel like I’m helpless, but why I can’t say

I’ve now got my reason to live

To spread hope to family, my children and friends

Father say one more mean thing

I got thick skin and it helps me to sing

sorry's not the way


I dont know what I’ve been told

You never grow young but you sometimes die old

Unlike before we’ve gone too far

You left me with nothing but this six-string guitar

There's reasons to go and there's reasons to stay

I think I'll approach this an alternate way

Better left able then you were before

Theres nothing to mention you’ve settled the score

I don’t know what is real

When your telling me how to feel

It’s hard enough laughing when walls come on crashin

I don’t know how to feel

I don’t know how to feel

The longer it happened the stranger it felt

i wasted away and tightened my belt

A weight on my shoulder a rock in my shoe

The sad things that happened from me unto you

I don’t know what is real

When your telling me how to feel

It’s hard enough laughing when walls come on crashin

I don’t know how to feel

I don’t know how to feel

It’s no little thing to get over you

I tried to sleep around but it felt untrue

It’s no little thing easier said than done

Walking in the graveyard looking for my mother’s son

A darkness lives inside i can’t share with anyone

I don’t know what I’ve been told

You never grow young and you sometimes die old

how to feel


I saw you look into the sun

Never thought it’d ever hurt no one

The rain don't drop it always pours

The strength i witnessed has come back for more

I'm looking for father's son

I saw him wandering doin something dumb

I can be only what i am

I’m on a journey, but I made no plan

Cold will find a way to creep into my day

And it's all on to me say heat me up my lord

I feel it in my bones, its calling from my home

And no matter where i roam, heat my up my lord

Heat my up my lord

Heat my up my lord

When will it all seem like i'm fine

I'm working hard to leave the past behind me

Searching out secrets where there's none

I take the blame for almost everything you've done

We all got nothing left to lose

We've walked a mile in each other's shoes

Dont trust the voices that you hear

Remember moments that you once held dear

Cold will find a way to creep into my day

And it's all on to me say heat me up my lord

I feel it in my bones, its calling from my home

And no matter where I roam, heat my up my lord

Heat my up my lord

Heat my up my lord

Heat me up my lord

Heat my lord

Heat me up, heat me up my

Heat me up my lord

Heat Me Up


If I hurt you too much, would you let it be known

If had your touch, I wouldn’t feel all alone

There’s nights and there’s day that I’d rather forget

But true to your word, I don’t live with regret

Oh and the lights in the city are too bright for my eyes

Give me a long lazy sunset on a blue southern sky

Throwing the last eight months back to god up above

Living a life that is worthy of keeping your love

I gave up on faith for what it means to be me

I thought we were safe but I had the chance to see three

All pain hurts the same when it hits you jsut right

Take all that away, all you got left is life

Oh and the lights in the city are too bright for my eyes

Give me a long lazy sunset on a blue southern sky

Throwing the last eight months back to god up above

Living a life that is worthy of keeping your love

Back on the road, with my whiskey in hand

Last I heard you were broke, but had found you a man

When I lay down my head, all my trouble sets in

I’m begging for peace and some joy to begin

Oh and the lights in the city are too bright for my eyes

Give me a long lazy sunset on a blue southern sky

Throwing the last eight months back to god up above

Living a life that is worthy of keeping your love

too bright


I’ve been crying, I’ve been sleeping

I’ve been trying, I’ve been screaming

I’ve been thinking about you too damn much

I’ve been fighting, finding meaning,

I’ve been smoking, i’ve been drinking

I’ve been thinking about you too damn much

Leave me alone to myself

Its too crowded already

Leave my mind to dwell

Let you back in when i'm ready

I’ve been writing, i’ve been singing,

I’ve been sitting, finding meaning

I’ve been seeing, people screaming,

Goddamn stop my dreaming

I’ve been thinking about you too damn much

Leave me alone to myself

It's too crowded already

Leave my mind to dwell

Let you back in when i'm ready

Leave me alone to myself

It's too crowded already

Leave my mind to dwell

Let you back in when i'm ready

I’ve been crying, I’ve been sleeping

I’ve been trying, I’ve been screaming

I’ve been thinking about you too damn much

I’ve been seeing, people screaming,

Goddamn stop my dreaming

I've been thinking about you too damn much

I’ve been thinking about you too damn much

i’ve been thinking about you too damn much

too crowded already


We will be so happy you will see because

Your love was the kind people sing about

Five now three, but were still a family because

Your love was the kind people sing about

Your light is in me

Your passion too

I can remember every word

Your strength is in me

It’s all from you

I can remember every word

We will be so happy you will see because

Your love was the kind people sing about

Five now three, but were still a family because

Your love was the kind people sing about

Your light is in me

Your passion too

I can remember every word

We will be so happy you will see because

Your love was the kind people sing about

FIve now three, but were still a family because

Your love was the kind people sing about

denny's song


I saw you in the light

It's darker than the night

I’ve seen this place before

You kicked me out that door

Now I’m full of sorrow and the sight

Now I’ve seen the day is big and bright

You measure me in lies

I wear a dark disguise

I’m addicted to my dreams

My mind is bursting at the seams

Now I’m full of sorrow and the sight

Now I’ve seen the day is big and bright

I’m addicted to my dreams

My mind is bursting at the seams

Now I’m full of sorrow and the sight

Now I’ve seen the day is big and bright

sorrow and sight


Elma my girl, you're the one that I adore

365 it comes knocking at my door

When I look in your eyes, i see what has come before

When i'm saving a life, I replace a couple more

One day at a time is what i have learned

I'm no longer bitter, i no longer burn

What's time when I'm young, what's sleep when i dream

I'm no longer yelling, i no longer scream

Woh oh oh oh,

No longer yelling, i no longer scream

Woh oh oh oh,

Have I made you proud, I have changed so many things

When I'm singing out loud, it's the sober me I bring

You sleep now in my bed, though i know its probably wrong

But I've got this one life, and I'm gonna make it strong

One day at a time is what i have learned

I'm no longer bitter, i no longer burn

What's time when I'm young, what's sleep when i dream

I no longer yelling, i no longer scream

Woh oh oh oh,

I no longer yelling, i no longer scream

Woh oh oh oh,

Do as i say and our lives I will change

I reach down to my soul and i see your sweet face

Do as i say and our lives I will change

I reach down to my soul and i see your sweet face

Do as i say and our lives I will change

I reach down to my soul and i see your sweet face

Do as i say and our lives I will change

I reach down to my soul and i see your sweet face

Do as i say and our lives I will change

I reach down to my soul and i see your sweet face

Do as i say and our lives I will change

I reach down to my soul and I see your sweet face
