What Are We All Searching For What Are We All Searching For
03:59

Lyrics:

When I was young I only wanted to be older Oohh Was I the only one who felt that way? Did you feel that way? Now I’m grown, I wish I felt a little younger Oohh Am I the only one who feels this way? Do you feel that way? When I’m Scared, I wish I was a little braver Oohh Am I the only one who feels this fear? Have you felt that fear? And when I talk I wish I’d sound a little smarter Oohh Am I the only one who feels unsure? Have you felt unsure? All the ghosts still haunt over these trail Because all the will in the world can’t move the scales So we ride on the wind from shore to shore But what are we all searching for? Yeah, what are we all searching for? When I’m tired, I wish I worked a little harder Oohh Am I the only one who breaks this way? Do you break that way? And when I sing I wish I felt a little stronger Oohh Am I the only one who feels this way? Have you felt that way? All the ghosts still haunt over these trail Because all the will in the world can’t move the scales So we ride on the wind from shore to shore But what are we all searching for? Yeah, what are we all searching for? Oh, will we find it now? If it buried like a treasure is it lost in the crowd? What if we never do? Calls and echoes are falling through Calls and echoes are falling through All the ghosts still haunt over these trail Because all the will in the world can’t move the scales So we ride on the wind from shore to shore But what are we all searching for? Yeah, what are we all searching for?

Dear Old Friend Dear Old Friend

Lyrics:

Hey, my dear old friend Thought of you today and I hope you’re well We used to pass the time, but that was in another life Now every time we talk I can’t believe how long it’s been Replayed this all in my head Can still hear the ghosts of past lives that we’ve led I fall back in time a few years It’s been so long, but somehow I’m still here Hey, my dear old friend Thought of you today and I hope you’re well We used to pass the time, but that was in another life Now every time we talk I can’t believe how long it’s been Heard you became an engineer I know we missed the wedding, god it’s been a crazy year Remember all those dumb things we’d do? Let’s overstate the old time for a minute or two Hey, my dear old friend Thought of you today and I hope you’re well We used to pass the time, but that was in another life Now every time we talk I can’t believe how long it’s been Hey, my dear old friend Thought of you today and I hope you’re well We used to pass the time, but that was in another life Now every time we talk I can’t believe how long it’s been

Holding On Holding On

Lyrics:

Sit down Son, I know that you're probably too young Your world is still only as big as your homes back yard But time goes fast, it catches you when you look back You won't believe all the people, they come and they go As I watched you come alive, part of me died And I held you through the night, I watched you cry I am holding on I'm still holding on So make the most Take pictures of all of those ghosts And don't be afraid to go down a road you don't know As you grow I'll show you all that I know But one day will come when you're gonna have to stand on your own As I watched you come alive Part of me died And I held you through the night I watched you cry I am holding on I'm still holding on Sit down Son When I look back at all that I've done There's not a day I would change cause it led me to now So I wrote this down Though I haven't quite figured it out But I won't be the same person next year As I am right now As I watched you come alive part of me died And I held you through the night I watched you cry I am holding on I'm still holding on

Phantom Phantom
03:35

Lyrics:

Sun goes down, spirits come in the dark Lay so still, count the movements of the clock Lost in that place between sleeping and awake This phantom of you is proving more than I can take Ooh I could almost hear you Ooh I could almost hold you The cars outside and the creaking of the floors The sounds feel strange without your voice anymore Get up in the night think I see you in the mirrors Feel a chill in the air and I'd swear that you are near Ooh I could almost hear you Ooh I could almost hold you Morning comes and the ghosts disappear Walk through the house, but I know that you're not here Read those old letters than I tossed in the drawer I torture myself, but I can't do it anymore Ooh I could almost hear you Ooh I could almost hold you

Come Home Come Home
03:29

Lyrics:

Can we talk it through? I don’t want to fight with you Because I know you said, that you just need some time How did we get so low? I can’t do this on my own So tell me why, you need to be alone. And I can’t stand When I reach over to take your hand And you shake it off and give a look so cold It gives me chills I will hold my breath Until you come home I will hold my breath Until you come home I can’t sleep at all I’m starting, at my phone But no matter how I check you still haven’t called. And I admit, I’m not well I’m losing track of myself Cause the hours pass And I haven’t moved at all And I can’t stand When I see you with another man And you tell me that he is just a friend But I don’t know I will hold my breath Until you come home I will hold my breath Until you come home Tell me what it is you want me to do Should we just pack our bags and head off somewhere new Tell me what it is you want me to say Cause I can’t believe that you would turn and walk away I will hold my breath Until you come home I will hold my breath Until you come home I will hold my breath Until you come home I will hold my breath Until you come home

Fear Of The Sea Fear Of The Sea
03:49

Lyrics:

It’s funny what you think at the end of your days I had money, I had time, but I threw them away I had chances to leave, but each time I would stay I was old, I was bitter, I was stuck in my ways And each night when I look back on me Not a single scar can be seen And it comes and it goes and I think Maybe this is all I’m supposed to be I lived my life for the fear of the sea From afar I would look down on each crashing wave Oh I’ve never been certain, I’ve never been brave And I wish that I took that advice that she gave That old bones and regrets are all you take to your grave And each night when I look back on me Not a single scar can be seen And it comes and it goes and I think Maybe this is all I’m supposed to be I lost it all for the fear of the sea It’s funny what you think at the end of your days Well the tide it came in and it took my away And each night when I look back on me Not a single scar can be seen And it comes and it goes and I think Maybe this is all I’m supposed to be I gave my life for the fear of the sea

Lyrics:

My whole life I have been afraid I have hedged my bets I have played it safe It’s hard to face that I’m just a man And all I can do is the best I can I never give myself a break Every good thing is either luck or fate I’ll sow the seeds when I find new ground But the beat of my heart makes a hollow sound Yeah the beat of my heart it makes a hollow sound Oh I am losing sleep I’ve got miles to go I’ve got mouths to feed So when I lose this war with time And I finally close my eyes What will be left behind And the truth is all I’ll ever be Is a shadow cast on the open sea When will I leave that stone behind It’s just a marker of this passing time I never give myself a break Every good thing Is either luck or fate I’ll sow the seeds when I find new ground But the the beat of my heart makes a hollow sound Yeah the beat of my heart it makes a hollow sound Oh I am losing sleep I’ve got miles to go I’ve got mouths to feed So when I lose this war with time And I finally close my eyes What will be left behind Oh I am losing sleep I’ve got miles to go I’ve got mouths to feed So when I lose this war with time And I finally close my eyes What will be left behind

Lyrics:

It's been a long day but I can't quit until the job is done Oh, I had the best intentions but I stared straight into the sun Now I feel a little reckless with the fire coursing through my blood Oh, god this is electric it was the calm before the flood Don't stop running you can't stop running Don't stop moving the war is coming Don't stop running you can't stop running Don't stop moving the wall is coming down I saw the whole thing the image burned into my eyes Now I feel it all around me looking up at the strangest skies So, I'm calling out for something hear a voice I don't recognize Oh, just make it up the north hill I can't move I'm paralyzed Don't stop running you can't stop running Don't stop moving the war is coming Don't stop running you can't stop running Don't stop moving the wall is coming down One two three we're all just counting time before we end up stranded four five six we keep on marching on but we don't understand it One two three we're all just counting time before we end up stranded four five six we keep on marching on but we don't understand it Keep on running you can't stop running Keep on moving the war is coming Keep on running you can't stop running Keep on moving the wall is coming down

Lyrics:

I fear I'm losing time I find myself in places, not sure how I arrived It's safer standing still As the world moves on around me, watch it pass before my eyes Oh is this all a dream I can't remember half the words to songs I used to sing Can this be undone Why are my sharpest memories from way back when I was young So hold me close my darling I need something to tether me here I feel my edges fading I've been fighting sleep so long I finally shut my eyes And I woke up brand new So we keep holding on Waiting for an answer that we never thought would come I'm losing what's been said The same words keep repeating on a loop inside my head But I still have my doubts Maybe this time next year I'll have this all figured out I'm wondering what to feel But it's hard to keep in focus when I'm drifting at the wheel So hold me close my darling I need something to tether me here I feel my edges fading I've been fighting sleep so long I finally shut my eyes And I woke up brand new Won't you please stay near I need you to be near Cause I might disappear If I was ever here And I woke up brand new And I woke up brand new

Lyrics:

I was caught in the dark you were fighting a war I was struggling for air you were combing the shore Tell me am I a broken chord Cause I have never felt this alone before Navigate this shifting maze Follow breadcrumbs to the grave I should fought for you darling I should have held on to something Oh I watched this pass before my eyes I should have fought for you darling I was scattered like dust you were chiseled in stone I was lost in my head you were guiding me home Tell me what has this all been for Cause I have never felt this alone before Navigate this shifting maze Follow breadcrumbs to the grave I should fought for you darling I should have held on to something Oh I watched this pass before my eyes I should have fought for you darling I should fought for you darling I should have held on to something Oh I watched this pass before my eyes I should have fought for you darling

No Escape For The Rain No Escape From The Rain

Lyrics:

I built this house with my own two hands I laid every brick and I worked the land For years it has stood through the wind and rain The storms they would come, but the house remained This time, this time, this time it was too much to take The walls, the walls, the walls, the walls started to shake Now there's no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain Now there's no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain The water it came through the walls and floor I closed up the hatch and I locked those doors The splintering wood made an awful sound And I covered my head as it all came down This time, this time, this time it was too much to take The walls, the walls, the walls, the walls started to shake Now there's no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain Now there's no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain This time, this time, this time it was too much to take The walls, the walls, the walls, the walls started to shake Now there's no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain Now there's no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain This time, this time, this time it was too much to take The walls, the walls, the walls, the walls started to shake Now there's no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain Now there's no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain, no escape from the rain

What A Fool I Was What A Fool I Was

Lyrics:

When I was a kid, I knew everything Spent late nights on the front porch swing Ran the town and scraped my knees Of all my days were the best of these Lord I'm not going Lord I'm not going Tell me what is the weight of this Oh, Lord I'm not going Under the moon of a starless sky Still see your ghost when I close my eyes With every word, I can't convey at the tip of my tongue No matter how far I go I keep looking on down the road Keep chasing down that feeling just like coming home I'm older now what can be said Just a mixed up collection of the books I've read I need a map to show me where to go Cause the more I learn seems the less I know Lord I'm not going Lord I'm not going Tell me what is the weight of this Oh, Lord I'm not going Under the moon of a starless sky Still see your ghost when I close my eyes With every word, I can't convey at the tip of my tongue No matter how far I go I keep looking on down the road Keep chasing down that feeling just like coming home Years from now where will I be Will these friends of mine still look out for me Will I get to see what my boys become Will I find out what a fool I was Under the moon of a starless sky Still see your ghost when I close my eyes With every word, I can't convey at the tip of my tongue No matter how far I go I keep looking on down the road Keep chasing down that feeling just like coming home

Need You Right Now Need You Right Now
04:15

Lyrics:

I was feeling lost at the edge of the world Saw your lips were moving, but I didn’t hear a word And everything froze in time – no the clock was just broken Couldn’t fall asleep so I just laid on the floor Fighting off the thoughts that I can’t think anymore And every time I close my eyes, I see you there Oh, I just want this all to end It’s not like we didn’t see this coming But now that it’s here, it doesn’t feel real And I can feel how fragile all this is Will I still hear you whispering into my ear Just like you were near I want to feel you in the air We all sat in silence as we rode in the car Counted all the exits with my head on the door We drove through the mountains drove through the trees People filed in and we all gathered around Stood off in the distance with my head in the clouds Why is it every time I wear this suit I feel like a child Oh, I just want this all to end It’s not like we didn’t see this coming But now that it’s here, it doesn’t feel real And I can feel how fragile all this is Will I still hear you whispering into my ear Just like you were near I want to feel you in the air I really need you right now I really need you right now I really need you right now I really need you right now It’s not like we didn’t see this coming But now that it’s here, it doesn’t feel real And I can feel how fragile all this is Will I still hear you whispering into my ear Just like you were near I want to feel you in the air
