LYRICS

I Close My Eyes

V1

I know her and she knows me

We’re not as young as we used to be

Chasing down the careless age

Till wisdom came running on faster legs

C

I close my eyes and dream of her many years ago

I close my eyes and dream of her many girls ago

V2

I know her and she knows me

She is the face of my enemy

Once the futures greatest fear

Now my reflection inside the mirror

C

I close my eyes and dream of her many years ago

I close my eyes and dream of her many girls ago

I close my eyes and dream of her and all she didn't know

I close my eyes and dream of her

B

Dancing in patches of sunlight

Time was an hour-less friend

Oh how I wish to be that girl again

In a wiser tomorrow

Remember, Remember

V1. Remember darling when we used to dance?

No children to care for, for we were children too

Lost in Romance, a lot of future plans

But no Logic

Remember darling when we used to laugh?

Under a ceiling of starlight, the carpet made of grass

You’d play with my hair and pass me notes in class

And I would stutter

C.

Time doesn't wait for anybody, It only turns into the past

If I could change the things that changed me I wouldn't

I’d let each moment last

We love and we lose and remember, remember

We love and we lose and remember

V2. Remember darling when we used to fight?

In the heat of anger the cool of sleepless nights

Bickering, arguing, wondering why we never used our words before

Remember darling they said we’d never last

From work and distance and six months past our starting date

Now twenty years later look who’s laughing

Good Guys And The Villains

V1.

 Little man in a big world.

The land so large and problems so small

Little ears trusting in every word they hear

One day he'll work the factory and grow to be six feet tall

His mother will always see him in his toddler years

C.

He believes in what he sees, he says what he means

If only everything were exactly like it appeared

(Tag)

 Sometimes the outcasts look like trouble

And the enemies look like friends

It takes a little livin’ to know just where you stand

V2. Little boy with big opinions

One size too small for his adult britches

Thinking he's got life figured out all the problems and solutions

Someday, someday he'll learn to love a woman and tell his little man

Women are hard to understand

C.

He packed his bags to catch his train

To find his own way no one could tell him to stay

It’ll take many times to realize he still needs advice

And the wisdom of the wise that have gone before

(Tag)

Sometimes the good things and the bad

Get lost in the expectations we have

It takes a little living to know what really lasts

V3. Young man in a mean world

Politics and and the grind of work

Seems like you have to earn your happiness

Young man on a white horse

Falling to his haughty corpse

He's not invincible as he thought he might be

C. He stood and he fell, times like Heaven and times like Hell

Tightening his fist toward the voiceless sky

If there really were higher meaning, why do good men die?

While the wolves with bad intentions get away with their lies?

(Tag)

Sometimes the good guys and the villains

Are dressed in grey opinions

And they leave us to question where the hero stands

When Love Loves Alone

V. Sometimes love comes like the morning

Hiding inside of the gloom

Sometimes it falls like an evening

Sometimes love falls when you do

V. Sometimes love grows in the shadows

Where roses they seldom bloom

Sometimes it withers in sunlight

Sometimes love grows when you do

C.

I don’t mind, pass me by

Life rarely gives you a second try

I’ll be here watching from this side

Sometimes, love loves alone

V. Sometimes love comes fast and fleeting

Love can be soft and slow

Sometimes it leaves without warning

Sometimes love waits alone

V. Sometimes love’s made out of of wishes      

Or built on the concrete of trust    

Sometimes love, leans on a wavering lust                    

Sometimes love stands alone

C.

I don't mind, pass me by

Life may just give you a second try

I’ll be here watching from this side

Sometimes, love loves alone

V.

Sometimes love lasts for a moment

Sometimes it stays one hundred years

I’ve heard them say it’s never long enough

Sometimes love loves alone

C. I don't mind, pass me by

I often dream, of when you were mine

If you were wondering I will be fine

Sometimes love....

Sometimes, love loves alone

Window

V.

Get away from the Window

The second floor above your fears

You live in your robe, clinging to the bedpost

Wearing the stripes of the shutter shadows

V.

Get away from the window

That angry face staring back at you

Your heart and the glass, they’re one in the same

Fragile and tempered held by a frame

(Tag)

Wishing you were anybody, everybody, just somebody else

C.

Let the sun color your skin, the wind play with your hair

The street under your shoes, the release of despair

Madness and sadness the inseparable pair

They dance in a haunted ballroom, while you call the tune

V.

Get away from your solutions

That cigarette between your lips

You’re looking to lose the shape of your hips

You’re only losing your confidence

(Tag)

Wishing you were everybody, anybody, just somebody else

 C.

Let the sun color your skin, the wind play with your hair

The four wall blues stay in history’s affair

Madness and sadness the criminal pair

They dance and sway to troubles tune, while you call the cue
