Inevitably 03:47
Love is in the air tonight Crack a bottle while the moon's still high and the band is on with one more song. Close my eyes and count to three wishing that the stars look down on me send you soon Maybe you're here so where are you Maybe you're far I can't find you, can't find you a Something is clear it's meant to be inevitably, inevitably. Another morning set to brew don't know I why I set the table for two thought you were here then disappeared There's a vacancy in my heart pretty sure that you're the missing part how much longer? All this time, you wait for me, you wait for me and soon I'll find you came for me, you came for me

I’d be riding that wave but the ocean’s too loud I carry that weight say don’t wait on me you say “luck is gonna find you, wait and see” I still hear you gently saying I know that you’re scared but it’s all right I promise that the world won’t bite Life is what you make it look around and be the one breaking ground dreamer’s didn’t build this town no dreamer’s didn’t build this town You wake up in the morning rise and shine with your tired hands and eyes like mine You got a strength like I’ve never seen Gave up wishing when you turned eighteen I can hear you softly saying For so long I wasn’t listening but I hear you now It’s time to take all my dreams and all the could be’s and give them life I owe it to you for pushing aside your dreams to make room for mine I know that you’re scared but it’s all right I promise that the world won’t bite Life is what you make it look around and be the one breaking ground dreamer’s didn’t build this town no dreamer’s didn’t build this town

Do you wanna climb that ridge I’m content here on the ground Do you wanna cross that bridge If we fall we could drown Does your curiosity peak when you let your walls crumble Are we stronger when we’re weak even as we stumble? I say yes I say no you always say goodbye when I try to say hello you say yes you say no you always want to come when it’s time for me to go you never say no when I try to say yes it’s only because that you think you know best. you never say no I just want you to know. Love means letting go Love means letting go. Do you see that door of dreams? I see green on the other side It may not be what it seems You don’t know till you’ve tried. Does your curiosity peak when you let your walls crumble Are we stronger when we’re weak even as we stumble? What may be may be What may be may be I say yes I say no you say yes you say no you always want to come when it’s time for me to go you never say no when I try to say yes it’s only because that you think you know best. you never say no I just want you to know. Love means letting go Love means letting go. Love means letting go Love means letting go.

Locked and chained by what we don’t say the inner self is the one we betray naked desires playing with fire the needs of the heart never expire I’ll carry the burden as we grow no love (will be) lost only gained we started this journey long ago to find the sunshine through the rain So bring the rain down Bring the rain down Bring the rain down Black clouds we hang in the silence Hands of time that slowly unbind us how do we speak love for real how do we let truth reveal I’ll carry the burden as we grow no love (will be) lost only gained we started this journey long ago to find the sunshine through the rain So bring the rain down Bring the rain down Bring the rain down It’s a fine, it’s a fine, it’s a fine line between the edge and abyss Climbing our way, climbing our way to the precipice to feel it rain down feel the rain now feel the rain now to feel it rain down feel the rain now feel the rain now so feel it rain down feel the rain now feel the rain now so feel it rain down feel the rain now feel the rain now

You’re staring at the door my eyes locked on the floor but we’re not going anywhere anymore I thought we were okay There’s nothing else to say you said it all anyway Lift me up I’ll pull you through this I’ll this turn around Love is our creation. Creation. Love love me now show me how show oh oh oh me love love me down untied unwound oh oh oh You think you need some space we’ve fallen out of place please don’t cut your perfect nose to spite your face. This is where we strain stuck in the mundane tryin’ to find the pulse that lies within our veins. Lift me up I’ll pull you through this I’ll this turn around Love is our creation. Creation. Love love me now show me how show oh oh oh me love love me down untied unwound oh oh oh If we could love like we fight make the bark cure the bite then we start fresh tonight I never want you in pain let’s run all night through the rain and wash it all away. And wash it all away. This is my declaration Love is our creation. Love is our creation.

Dreams only made of you lyin' in the night when the day is new… mmm you and and I were one flying through the sky now the time has come to land If I let you go what will I have what’s there to hold it’s my problem to solve and if i do, will I dissolve? Love till my heart was bare skin down to the bone it was hardly fair oh something strong gone soft now I’m all alone never reached the top, oh If I let you go what will I have what’s there to hold it’s my problem to solve and if i do, will I dissolve? I know what I’m meant to do Fear of losing hides the truth If I let you go what will I have what’s there to hold it’s my problem to solve and if i do, will I dissolve If I let you go what will I have what should I hold it’s my problem to solve and if i do, will I dissolve? Will I dissolve?

Let me kiss you good bye one more time I’ll see you in two weeks time Don’t forget to feed the cat I’ll take you both out when I get back. Don’t worry about me, I’ll be fine. Just call me when you arrive. I’ve got my work, I’ve got my friends, I’ve got a hole in my heart where you’ve been. Ooh ooh, ooh ooh. Do you know that you’re it? Do you know that you’re home? You’re the only one I wanna hold. We’re solid gold, We’re solid. I want us to live Before we get old It’s okay to break the mold. We’re solid gold, we’re solid gold. You love what you love, You love what you love Who put that ceiling above? Love is like air, Love is like air The more you breathe in, the more you can share. I’m scared I’ll scare you away by the naked words that I may say But it’s our words that will set us free the truth is all we ever need. Do you know that you’re it? Do you know that you’re home? You’re the only one I wanna hold. We’re solid gold, We’re solid. I want us to live Before we get old It’s okay to break the mold. We’re solid gold, we’re solid gold.

You drive me to the airport And you carry my bags kiss me on the cheek try to take the dinner tab I’ll talk to you for hours watch your favorite show snuggle on the couch I’m just hoping that you know It’s not anything until you call it until you say it until you name it It’s not anything until you call it until you say it until you name it If you don’t say something then it’s nothing It’s nothing I like your warmth against me however it’s expressed I want to be wanted the connection, the caress. I’m not interested in shame or nights I should forget or guilty looks of judgement or to want what I can't get It’s not anything until you call it until you say it until you name it It’s not anything until you call it until you say it until you name it If you don’t say something then it’s nothing It’s nothing upsets come from unmet expectations I can't read your mind tell me now to temper these temptations I can't read your mind, no I can't read your mind. It’s not anything until you call it until you say it until you name it It’s not anything until you call it until you say it until you name it If you don’t say something then it’s nothing It’s nothing

If good things come to those who wait Even if we make mistakes I’ll be holding on When minutes feel like paper Cuts upon this heart When your gone. I close my eyes But I can't Sleep through the night sleep through the night without you Turn off my phone Tired and alone There’s not a thing in this world I can do I can't sleep through the night without you. I can't sleep through the night without you. Memories of sharing ice cream slowly melt into my day dreams I wonder if you hear me counting in the dark days until you’re back in my arms I close my eyes But I can't Sleep through the night sleep through the night without you Turn off my phone Tired and alone, There’s not a thing in this world I can do I can't sleep through the night without you. I can't sleep through the night without you. Restless mornings full of doubt yes I wonder if I could live without But I know when you walk through the door I’ll be sure I’m yours. So I close my eyes But I can't Sleep through the night Turn off my phone Tired and alone, There’s not a thing in this world I can do I can't sleep through the night without you. I can't sleep through the night without you. I can't sleep through the night without you.

Open ocean Lonely sailboat always finds its way back home Growing upwards always changing Tethered doesn’t mean you can’t roam You can dance around the other till you find another lover in the end it’s always the truth there’s never been a better version of me without you. Doo do do the do I do say it cause you want me and I want you too doo doo do the do I do everything you need is right in front of you. hoo hoo Everything you need is right in front of VERSE 2 The greener grass is half the glass but the one we hold is always full. Daylight moonlight everything’s all right knowing that you want me too. You can dance around the other till you find another lover in the end it’s always the truth There’s never been a better version of me without you. Doo do do the do I do say it cause you want me and I want you too doo doo do the do I do everything you need is right in front of you. hoo hoo Everything we need is right in front of The glass we hold is always full The glass we hold is always full The glass we hold is always full The glass we hold is always full Doo do do the do I do say it cause you want me and I want you too doo doo do the do I do everything you need is right in front of you.

Pandora 04:22
of what i've seen, and all I know never so deeply has someone touched my soul I look to you with open eyes, till once again you're by my side and when these tears i've cried for you have run Remembering your touch, I continue on if love at first sight is just a myth call me pandora I plead the fifth i'll take the sorrow and i'll take the pain just to keep the hope of seeing you again. Of all the looks you give, and the words you say It's the ones you don't that give you away So far from you, so close to home What I want against what I’ve known I think I understand why they don’t understand. Love’s not fickle, you follow its command. We are on the inside x 4. you are the first real man I have ever met I miss you so much, my eyes are always wet I love you so hard that I could die and yet I’ve never felt so alive
