BURN THE MONEY

 

I was so high when it burst
It was all there now I never felt worse
Don't say you understand me

I know there's more to this ride than sex and fame
All of these girls yeh they know my name but they don't understand me
It's been three days without sleep

There we stood on the top of those cliffs
Getting so high cause we were just kids weren't we
I miss your smile and the taste of your kiss
I remember telling you "baby we'll be rich" you'll have everything down on that list
Now we're prayin' for fire cause the winter just hit singing

How we gonna live like this
How we gonna live like this and not give up
How we gonna live like this and will it all be worth the risk?

I can show you the way
If you dare to believe me
All you gotta do is
Burn the money
I can show you the way
If you swear to believe me
All you gotta do is
Burn the money

I found out the hard way they were wrong
Never missed a beat always kept on song but I was always thinking
I was always thinking
There was always something creeping up
I want you closer paper love
I'm your leader in the one
I'm your leader please give me some cause

I miss your smile and the taste of your kiss
"Always love me like now cause I'll never be rich" but you'll have everything down on that list
If you and I believe it girl I know we can't miss singing

I know we can live like this
I know we can live like this and not give up
I know we can live like this and it'll all be worth the risk

I can show you the way
If you dare to believe me
All you gotta do is
Burn the money
I can show you the way
If you swear to believe me
All you gotta do is
Burn the money

When Will we be free?

They came in the night and
Signed away our lives,
Is this normal? Is it right?
We live and we die,
we love and we fight.
Because its normal,
because is right.
I know that I’m not a prisoner
When will we be free?
Be the light in the dark,
’cause we fell so far
Open up your heart, I know it’s hard
but its normal and its right
and I need you by my side
For the sunset in the sky,
and the bright blue in your eyes.
What a beautiful normal, this is right
and I know that I’m not a prisoner
When will we be free?
And we’re sick of the chains
This won’t happen again
From north to south,
from east to west,
hold your hands up in the air
When will we be free?
From the north to the south,
from the east to the west
When will we be free?

You are II

I know this month has been too hard,
Three states is just too far
Four thousand miles keeping us apart
These feelings don’t seem smart
I’ll try explain
Distance is pain
You are my every, everything
My only, only one
No sense of time
I’m free of care
All that matters is that you’re here,
in my dreams where I escape
To a place where I go, always hoping you’ll be close
You hold my heart so you’re my home…and now I know
How to explain
Distance is pain
You are my every, everything
My only, only one
Baby I’ll be back
You hold my heart.
So you’re my home.
You are my every, everything
My only, only one

Forever III

The fire takes a hold of me
Mesmerised,, I fight with darkness
I’m the wrong side of town tonight
That empty-hearted feeling, could all of this have meaning?
Your eyes never see me and
sometimes I wonder,
I wonder if…. 
I can’t help but fight this creeping
weakness in my mind that tells me I won’t even make it through the day,
The devil has my hand
Close your eyes and let your body go
There’s someone in the world that needs you most
Because forever is way too long to throw away when you have every single day of your life that things could change
Until forever, so put your demons in the past, hold your head up high, don’t look back
Today is the start of your forever
The fire takes a hold of me,
after dark I start to breath;
I’m on the right side of town tonight Embrace the light because
I know I can fight this creeping
weakness in my mind that tells me I won’t even make it through the day
Because forever is way too long to throw away when you have every single day of your life that things could change
Until forever, so put your demons in the past, hold your head up high, don’t look back
Today is the start of your forever
Close your eyes and let your body go
There’s someone in the world that needs you most
Because forever is way too long to throw away when you have every single day of your life that things could change
Until forever, so put your demons in the past, hold your head up high, don’t look back
Today is the start of your forever

I Know I

So listen as I spill my heart
with just one smile she takes me back to the start
I’m twenty-four years old and I can’t even talk to her for three seconds
Then I found my tongue,
Girl hell I know we’re young
but I need to be yours, will you be mine?
So…Just wait, oh say you will
I’ll be home soon
I tried the best I can to face
the distance keeping you away from me
But tonight its cold and I don’t want to age another second
Without your hand in mine
You were made for me read the signs
I’ve got it right this time and I’ve been trying my whole damn life, so
Stay, I hope you will
I’ll be home soon
Baby we’ll, be king and queen
I know it’s true
Do you remember what you said that night?
When you kissed me softly and I held you tight
I left you standing underneath that tree
With your words in my ears – “please come back to me”
Should I see the east coast, just to lose what I love most?
Do I stay? Do I go?
For the highs and the lows as I got off the plane
As I look for your face in the pouring rain
I stood alone but you were there
You smiled and said I
Stayed, I always will
you know it’s true
Baby, we’re the king and queen of everything
So let me love you
So let me love you
Because I can love you
And I will love you
So let me love you

Seventeen minutes on the clock until dawn
It’s been fourteen hours since I received the call
This is the moment where it all begins or it ends
I remember the second when you first called out for my hand
I lost my mind,
but gained a life
I think of you all the time
Apple of my eye
Blue eyes, blue Isla
Bought a house so you can call it home
I was scared but now I couldn’t be without you
I’ll Tell you about…. 
The moment where it all begins or it ends
I remember the second when you first called out for my hand
I lost my mind,
but gained a life
I think of you all the time
Apple of my eye
Blue eyes, blue Isla
My blue Isla
I lost my mind,
but gained a life
I think of you all the time
You’re the apple of my eye
Blue eyes, blue Isla
My blue eyes, blue Isla

Keep learning

I woke, I’d dreamed that you were colours and I was black and white, missed by the finer touches of the light
Then the sun came out and nothing felt impossible. As long as I’m with you
Keep learning it gets better
Don’t give it all away
You’ve got the best to come
Don’t give up
Your black and white is all I can think about
How could I contain my colours without you by my side?
Make the picture, I’ll fill the lines
Then the sun came out and nothing felt impossible, nothing was hard when I had you
Keep learning it gets better
Wait until love finds you on your back and picks you up again
Then the sun came out and nothing felt impossible, nothing was hard when I had you
Keep learning it gets better
Wait until love finds you on your back and picks you up again

the gold was never there

Just past the cemetery on the right,
the place that claims to preserve life
without a breath or drop of blood,
your loved ones lying in the mud.
Dark as night and crystal clear,
only whisper, bones have ears
Don’t lose sleep my dear;
Dead men have no fear
I know why you lie awake at night
Did you honestly think that this would bring everything you want?
Like you dreamt it’d be?
Bronze made you a baby, silver left you blind, the gold was never there…. 
It was never there
Not a saint but I feel blessed
Lose your anchors you’ll find rest in the open air
Does it make sense to live your life as numbers calculate your time,
and you’re always scared
Did you honestly think that this would bring everything you want? Like you dreamt it’d be?
Bronze made you a baby, silver left you blind, the gold was never there…. 
It was never there
Just run with everything you have, into the wild, for your heart and you’ll smile like a child when you know…. You know that we can’t live forever
Did you honestly think that this would bring everything you want? Like you dreamt it’d be?
Bronze made you a baby, silver left you blind, the gold was never there
The gold was never there
Oh oh oh never there….

breathe

Are you opening your heart again?
Did you ever think you’d really mend?
There’s nothing left for them to say
Silence keeps the demons at bay
Breathe in, out, I know you can
As wind turns stone to dust
I’m drowning
The river burns my lungs
I’m ready….to love…. again,
without you in my head
Breathe in, out, I know you can

knowledge is power

Feel the wind shifting,
It’s time for a change,
Knowledge is power for the youth of today
They have no defence
They are men
who live and breathe destruction.
We are so tired of being held down,
and just realising, our time is now.
We all refuse to sleep with one eye open
We outnumber the rich
a million to one
Let’s take back what is ours
What was stolen from the start
The quiet and humble,
will become the loud.
We know what we deserve
Everyone now is coming apart,
it was never this hard in
a prison without the bars.
We are so tired of being held down
And just realising our time is now
We all refuse to sleep with one eye open
We outnumber the rich
a million to one
Let’s take back what is ours
What was stolen from the start
I’ve watched you try, try live your life.
While they steal your time, it doesn’t feel right;
Come on, refuse to sleep with one eye open
We’re coming for you…. 
We outnumber the rich
a million to one
Let’s take back what is ours
What was stolen from the start

Tearing us apart

Follow and feel, try find what’s real
Travel through space, try find your place
I am the woman,
I am the man,
I am the child that doesn’t understand
All I see. All I see
Out of the oceans
into the sand
Out of the clouds
into the river’s hands
All I see. All I see is…. 
If you held the sun you’d give it up
If I untied your hands, you’d tie me up
All I see is how you believe we can live like this forever
…I’m giving up
I am the woman,
I am the man,
I am the child that doesn’t understand all I see
Out of the oceans
into the sand
Out of the clouds
into the river’s hands
All I see is tearing us apart
I tried to be human but humans all lie
I tried to avoid it but the truth is we all die.
The question is, how do we live when we’re governed by the gutless and old?
It’s killing you now
It’s killing us all
It’s killing me now
It’s tearing us apart
So sing it, sing it with me
I am the woman,
I am the man,
I am the child that doesn’t understand all I see,
is tearing us apart
