Lyrics

Back Of My Hand

When the lights are softly gleaming
I’m finally yours and yours alone
And I see the way you see me
Like no one’s ever seen me before
Kiss me till I shiver
Kiss me till I drown in your arms
Hold me tight I’m drunk on your charms
Oh babe I whisper in your ear
You and I are right where we belong

Oh I know you like the back of my hand
Like the back of my hand
And you were meant to be mine

Cause I love you all the time
Oh I love you all the time

You gave me something to believe in
Something real and bigger than myself
A whole new life a whole new meaning
I never shared with anybody else
Every now and then I worry
When days are passing by and dragging on
What will love be like when it grows old
But babe it couldn’t be more clear
Yeah you and I are right where we belong

Oh I know you like the back of my hand
Like the back of my hand
And you were meant to be mine

Cause I love you all the time
Oh I love you all the time

Old Records

Children run around everywhere
We let ‘em run make the people stare
We don’t mind
This is our time

I’ve missed you so my barrel of fun
Remember all the crazy gigs in the sun
It was so fine
It were different times

I’ve got our old records stuck in my head
Play on play on
Like when we were young

Remember how we ran before we walked
Remember how we sang before we talked
It made the old boys laugh
Cause it was different then

Now we’re thirty-five and we say stuff like
Time runs time flies
And tears will shed
For the good times had

I’ve got our old records stuck in my head
Play on play on
Like when we were young

When we were young
We grew up in the eye of the storm
We built a world of our own
When we were young
We shared what we were fighting for
Cause we were never alone
No we were never alone

I’ve got our old records stuck in my head
Play on play on
Like when we were young

Falling

We’ve seen a thousand moons
We shared a dozen Junes
We stuck like glue

Our hearts turned black and blue
We sang the comfort tunes
I wrote for you

We had our lives entwined
We had our teenage minds
Before a million eyes

And now we’re older
Still young but we’re older
Pretending we know what we do

And we’re falling
Oh falling
Oh falling
Stumbling through

Remember how we dreamed
What kind of brides we’d be
What lives we’d lead

We saw the world at peace
Good health and days of ease
No dead-end streets

We had our lives entwined
We had our teenage minds
Before a million eyes

And now we’re older
Still young but we’re older
Pretending we know what we do

And we’re falling
Oh falling
Oh falling
Stumbling through

Corner Of The World

Oh sky of orange
Sky of golden
Postcard-perfect serenity

Oh humming water
Sweet Madonna
Blissfully cradle me

We are right here right now oh
Our little corner of the world

Nowhere to go
Nowhere to be
Just aimlessly lazing round

No need to worry
Not to hurry
Water cools our bodies down

We are right here right now oh
Our little corner of the world

Oh back home
There’s more than we let on
Under the surface
Caught in the circus
Oh back home
Every day drags on
Drinking the nights into a blur
Longing for some shelter in the world
Oh our little corner of the world

Ignorant Fools

Oh babe leave in the key when locking the door
Close the curtains turn the lights down low
Shut the world outside
I don’t wanna hear it tonight

Oh babe don’t make me watch the 8 o’clock news
We’ll be a bunch of ignorant fools
And it tears me up inside
But I don’t wanna hear it tonight

Cause it’s pouring out of the sky
Onto the streets and into my life

Oh babe with those little precious presents upstairs
I don’t wanna be so worried and scared
Now let me close my eyes
And I don’t wanna hear it tonight

Oh babe let me hide inside your bunker of arms
I pray your love works like a lucky charm
And I may sound dumb and blind
But I must believe it tonight
make me believe it tonight

Cause it’s pouring out of the sky
Onto the streets and into my life

By The River

Tonight I’ll go down by the river
And let my feet be my guide
The sun’s setting slowly
There’s nothing more holy
Than painting an indigo sky
I’ll blow some smoke in the night

Eyes closed
My mind floats

I praise I praise
I praise I praise
I praise the day

I’m part of a team I love them they love me
I get high on the parties we throw
They mock me kindly
Ignite me and fight me
Whenever I’m hopelessly wrong
So I sit down and write them a song

Eyes closed
My mind floats

I praise I praise
I praise I praise
I praise the day

Tonight I’ll go down by the river

Rhythm Of Your Heart

Did you ever really think about the consequence
When you blew your chance
My restless friend

Did you ever really listen to the words I cried
And were they on your mind
As you drowned your life

You can knock upon my door
I’ll hold you till you cry no more
But I can’t keep up with the rhythm of your heart

Now is there anyone you trust enough to let on in
Anyone who knows your sins
Who enjoys your grin

And does she tell you things that I would used to say to you
And does she hold you too
When you’re drowned in booze

You can knock upon my door
I’ll hold you till you cry no more
But I can’t keep up with the rhythm of your heart
And I’ll tell you we’ll be fine
When it hurts a little less in good time
But I can’t keep up with the rhythm of your heart

I’m letting you go now
There’s a new life
I hope you’ll be happy
A new life a new meaning
Let it be healing
To your heart

You can knock upon my door
I’ll hold you till you cry no more
But I can’t keep up with the rhythm of your heart
Let me tell you we’ll be fine
It will hurt a little less in good time
But I can’t keep up with the rhythm of your heart

Let Him Go

He turned your life into a war zone
Time to come into your own
Carry that weight on your shoulder
Battling through like a soldier

For all of the fussing and fighting
All of the screaming and crying
The wishes you hide
For every piece of the dream you’re denied
For the sake of love

Let him go
I beg you let him go
Let him go
I beg you let him go

This is not what it should feel like
Solid love sharpens the mind
It’s supposed to be fun and inspiring
Dare you to live full and dive in

So don’t swallow your pride
It isn’t too late to get off of this ride
For the sake of love

Let him go
I beg you let him go
Let him go
I beg you let him go

So for the wishes you hide
For every piece of the dream you’re denied
And for the sake of love

Let him go
I beg you let him go
Let him go
I beg you let him go

Long To Believe You

So here’s another breathless night
Another burst of tears
Tried breathing in the shower
And confess to you my irrational fears
And like a thousand times before
You’ll try to encourage me
To be a little smarter
A little stronger than this pointless state I’m in

Oh how I long to believe you
When you’re telling me the best is yet to come

But here’s another lonely Monday
Of another week
Another random hour
Of gazing through the window at a tree
Leaves burst from its branches
Oh so vividly
With no concessions
Oh how very different from this useless state I’m in

Oh how I long to believe you
When you’re telling me the best is yet to come

I bend and break
But in the most familiar way
In the most familiar way
Oh lonesome days
In the most familiar way
In the most familiar way

Oh how I long to believe you
When you’re telling me the best is yet to come

Lighthearted Years

Another messy year
Another one hundred tears
Let’s drug ourselves and glorify the old days

It’s a lonely lonely path
Losing friends you thought you had
Let’s soothe ourselves and glorify the old days

I’ve been living with no fear
So long so long
Oh the lighthearted years
So long so long
Tell me where do we go
Tell me where do we go
Tell me where do we go
And I will go on

Another helpless soul
Blows up our hopes
Let’s save ourselves and glorify the old days

And I don’t wanna be afraid
But that comes with the age
Let’s lose ourselves and glorify the old days

I’ve been living with no fear
So long so long
Oh the lighthearted years
So long so long
Tell me where do we go
Tell me where do we go
Tell me where do we go
And I will go on

I’ve been living with no fear
So long so long
Oh the lighthearted years
So long so long
And now that part of my life
Will live with me in my mind
Tell me where do we go
Tell me where do we go
Tell me where do we go
And I will go on

For All Time

Lay your heavy shoulder against mine
We can talk about whatever’s on your mind
I won’t judge a word you say
There’s no promises I’ll break
Lay your heavy shoulder against mine

We can talk till we’re old
We’re to have and to hold
Forever we’ll be
All the comfort we need
When you opened your eyes
I was right by your side
It was written in the sky
I’d be with you for all time

I know I never say these things out loud
But I’m every inch myself when we hang out
And this bottle that we shared
Makes me soft and free of care
And I realize what everything’s about

We can talk till we’re old
We’re to have and to hold
Forever we’ll be
All the comfort we need
When you opened your eyes
I was right by your side
It was written in the sky
I’d be with you for all time
