 Casting Shadows (On the Heels of Tomorrow)

Radio’s on playing an old familiar song

The one about the good times, the good times we had

You look to the future but you’re stuck in the past

Looking for that moment of time that will last

Casting shadows on the heels of tomorrow

Better than yesterday’s pity and sorrow

Casting shadows on the heels of tomorrow

Better than yesterday’s mmm, mmm, mmm

Life can be a long and lonely highway

Oh, don’t give a damn about what they’re gonna say

No map to guide you, no need to ask

Just looking for that moment of time that will last

Casting shadows on the heels of tomorrow

Better than yesterday’s pity and sorrow

Casting shadows on the heels of tomorrow

Better than yesterday’s mmm, mmm, mmm

Oh come on it will be alright

like that moment in time where the sun meets the night

Oh come on wise up you were pacing through life

and you know you wanna scream and you know you’re gonna fight

Casting shadows on the heels of tomorrow

Better than yesterday’s pity and sorrow

Casting shadows on the heels of tomorrow

Better than yesterday’s mmm, mmm, mmm


 

FRAGILE WAYS

Done a lot going out of my mind

I’m feeling like I just wasting your time

I do these things and I push you away

I feel alone and I think I might break

There were demons that I couldn’t erase

You showed me more in your style and grace

You took too much of the burden away

It wasn’t fair on you everyday

I was stuck in all my fragile ways and the light you gave to me

I was lost in the truth of my youth but you’ll never see me bleed

I was stuck in all my fragile ways and the light you gave to me

But you’ll never hear me say these words to you

Whoa........

I took it all and I gave nothing back

You stuck it out very matter of fact

What you saw in my god only knows

It wasn’t much but I think that all told

I was stuck in all my fragile ways and the light you gave to me

I was lost in the truth of my youth but you’ll never see me bleed

I was stuck in all my fragile ways and the light you gave to me

But you’ll never hear me say these words to you

Whoa........

There were so many things I wish but couldn’t say

So I’ll take my love and I’ll take it to the grave

But maybe someday I think I’ll hope and pray

That you and I can finally have our day.

I was stuck in all my fragile ways and the light you gave to me

I was lost in the truth of my youth but you’ll never see me bleed

I was stuck in all my fragile ways and the light you gave to me

But you’ll never hear me say these words to you

Whoa........


 WORDS ON REPEAT

Open your eyes my darling ‘cause this is nothing new

Time’s not stopping on this day that’s overdue

We’re just getting started

Am I even getting through

Living in a past so haunted

In these words I say to you

And the words on repeat and you can’t even sleep

On all the silly lies and tears you cry and all the things that will never come true

I know the words you don’t believe in

I know the words you can’t see it

You know the ways of the world

Or so you think

So what’s it going to be

I know the words you don’t believe in

I know the words you can’t see it

You know the ways of the world

Or so you think

So what’s it going to be

You’re still soul searching

But before your soul is gone

Take a look in the mirror

‘Cause the truth is never wrong

And the words on repeat and you can’t even sleep

On all the silly lies and tears you cry and all the things that will never come true

I know the words you don’t believe in

I know the words you can’t see it

You know the ways of the world

Or so you think

So what’s it going to be

I know the words you don’t believe in

I know the words you can’t see it

You know the ways of the world

Or so you think

So what’s it going to be



 YOU KNOW, YOU CAN, YOU WILL

Sitting alone at the bar at Jimmy’s

Looking down the barrel of a glass

Wondering if it’s some place, some place to nowhere

Well you’d fancy that

You’re a man of confusion

It’s written all over your face

You’ve forgotten yourself in the preconceived notions

Of love, your life, and disgrace

You know you were warned as you’re having your way

You know you were warned but even still

It’s a long road to nothing if you're running away

You know, you can, and you will

You got caught up in the American Dream

If you’d stop and think

You’re chasing something, something to nowhere

As you pour another drink

There can only be one solution

But it’s up to you to make

Your life’s crashing in like the waves of the ocean

On your love, your life, and disgrace

You know you were warned as you’re having your way

You know you were warned but even still

It’s a long road to nothing if you're running away

You know, you can, and you will

Step outside your head

Look what you could be

Don’t try to hide from the pain

Can you see?

You know you were warned as you’re having your way

You know you were warned but even still

It’s a long road to nothing if you're running away

You know, you can, and you will

You know you were warned as you’re having your way

You know you were warned but even still

It’s a long road to nothing if you're running away

You know, you can, and you will



 I CAN SEE WHAT YOU CAN SEE

I can see what you can see and you can see what I can be

But they don’t understand me

I’m sitting here wasting time so they say that it’s a crime

But they don’t want me to be

They sit on their hands while I’m playing this song

It doesn’t make sense can’t you see?

Bound by the ways that they all plod along

Singing and clapping the same boring song

To know it, to want it, to be here right now

You are the one that has showed me somehow.

I can see what you can see and you can see what I can be

But they don’t understand me

I’m sitting here wasting time so they say that it’s a crime

But they don’t want me to be

They sit on their hands while I’m playing this song

It doesn’t make sense can’t you see?

Bound by the ways that they all plod along

Singing and clapping the same boring song

To know it, to want it, to be here right now

You are the one that has showed me somehow.


ON THE LINE

Look up there’s a new day dawning

On your fears and love that don’t align

Sometimes life can feel so daunting

But it doesn’t have to be unkind

You can push and pull away from the plot line

But there’s nothing left to give up yet

Look ahead I don’t think you mind

In the loving memory of this mess

When nothing ever goes your way and there’s nothing even more to say

Let it be

I’ll be there baby

Let it be

It’ll be alright

Can you see?

I’ll be there baby

Can’t you see?

It’ll be alright

Started out something to nowhere

Started out on the line

You and I are going somewhere

Rest your weary soul and mind

When nothing ever goes your way and there’s nothing even more to say

Let it be

I’ll be there baby

Let it be

It’ll be alright

Can you see?

I’ll be there baby

Can’t you see?

It’ll be alright

SOLO

When nothing ever goes your way and there’s nothing even more to say

Let it be

I’ll be there baby

Let it be

It’ll be alright

Can you see?

I’ll be there baby

Can’t you see?

It’ll be alright

When nothing ever goes your way and there’s nothing even more to say

When nothing ever goes your way and there’s nothing even more to say

Let it be

I’ll be there baby

Let it be

It’ll be alright

It’ll be alright

It’ll be alright

It’ll be alright



 OVER ME

You woke up alone to an empty room and an aching heart

Next to those cold unmade sheets

All you hear is your silence and your thoughts of love and hate and your fading dreams

I never meant to hurt

Never meant to hurt you with the things that unmade me

It’s like a life book ended with a song but you didn't know which one it would be


You should stop those tears and crying

All the crying out over me

You should stop those tears and crying

All the crying out over me

You’re left to pick’n up the pieces on you own

Waiting for the answer to set you free

Fate is something is better than nothing

So please have some mercy on me


SOLO

There’ll come a time with distance

That you can let go of the things and make your peace

But I’ll always remember who you are and wait for you with my memories

You should stop those tears and crying

All the crying out over me

You should stop those tears and crying

All the crying out over me

You should stop those tears and crying

All the crying out over me

You should stop those tears and crying

All the crying out over me



 LIVE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY

Oh I knew right there from the start

You’d be my world, you’d be my heart

It’s not as if I’d found my way

Until I met you on that day

There were things they said that can’t be undone

They cursed us out but we did not run

Because the music we made had more to say

Than stand by me don’t go away

I said it now

I see it through

Said now

‘cause it’s the truth

We live to fight another day

We live to fight another day

We had our ups

We’ve had our downs

You still always wear your crown

And still the time it rolls on by

I’ve made you laugh and I’ve made you cry

I said it now

I see it through

Said now

‘cause it’s the truth

We live to fight another day

We live to fight another day

You saw right through me from the start

I’d be your world I’d be your heart

They’re not just words that are given away

We live to fight another day

We live to fight another day

We live to fight another day

We live to fight another day

We live to fight another day

We live to fight another day


 GONNA FIND A WAY

Been on the outside of what’s going on

You can’t seem to figure out what you’ve become

And is this me? Or I’m too blind to see

You’re stuck in the here and now of who you’re supposed to be

But you find peace in your heart

But you find peace in your heart

I don’t mind it

You can’t hide it

Gonna to find a way

You will know it

I will show it

Gonna to find a way

If I do nothing then I can’t fall

Better do something than nothing at all

Guess it’s time that I start to think

Yes, it’s about time because your doubts will make you sink

But you find peace in your heart

But you find peace in your heart

I don’t mind it

You can’t hide it

Gonna to find a way

You will know it

I will show it

Gonna to find a way

SOLO

I don’t mind it

You can’t hide it

Gonna to find a way

You will know it

I will show it

Gonna to find a way

I don’t mind it

You can’t hide it

Gonna to find a way

You will know it

I will show it

Gonna to find a way



 WE WILL CARRY ON

Comes down the early morning

I see it through your eyes

You were just lying

As you look on down the line

The sun is just rising

On this cold and rainy day

To watch a thousand men dying

On your victory day


Doesn’t matter today, doesn’t matter today

What you say to me

Doesn’t matter today, doesn’t matter today

‘Cause my soul will set me free

We will carry one with all of the weight

We will carry on with every step I take

We will carry one with all of the weight

We will carry on with every step I take

Comes down this early morning

But I don’t have the time

To see a few more now

Push on up the line

The sound is getting deeper

Roll around in my brain

The ghost is getting nearer

But my soul feels no pain


Doesn’t matter today, doesn’t matter today

What you say to me

Doesn’t matter today, doesn’t matter today

‘Cause my soul will set me free


We will carry one with all of the weight

We will carry on with every step I take

We will carry one with all of the weight

We will carry on with every step I take

More than the weight in every step I take

Gives me the will to know that I will carry on

More than the weight in every step I take

Gives me the will to know that I will carry on

More than the weight in every step I take

Gives me the will to know that you will carry on
