You know the feeling You felt it once before Like nothing else you've ever known You want it bad You want it more and more These days are fleeting And it's your time to shine You know nothing lasts forever And nothing can stop the ticking of time It don't get much better than this I'm telling you now so you You better enjoy it Yyou better enjoy Every moment of bliss Ain't no mistaking The best days of your life The ones you'll look back on someday And think about with misty eyes 'Cause time flies and people change You know it's true, but it seems so strange The love we share and the love we show Is all we've got so I think you should know It don't get much better than this I'm telling you now so you You better enjoy it You better enjoy Every moment of bliss

How long must I wait For you to get it straight I'll see you around, see you around, 'round town I want you to know If you ever need a place to go Whatever you call me, I don't care Whenever you need me, I'll be there Those tears falling down your face Wish I could make them go away But I can't ever erase the memories of yesterday (Ho-oh) It's my disgrace And there's nothing left to say That could possibly erase The memories of yesterday Forty days and forty nights I've tried to make it right It's not much fun And so much easier said than done But how else can I show That I would never let you go Whatever you call me, I don't care Whenever you need me, I'll be there Those tears falling down your face Wish I could make them go away But I can't ever erase The memories of yesterday (Ho-oh) It's my disgrace And there's nothing left to say That could possibly erase The memories of yesterday

I took your picture Carry it around Once I ran the ship aground Now I'm lonely And I'm feeling sad Only think of what we had I've fallen on the floor All caught up in a net Covering my face I try my hardest to forget That we never said goodbye before I let it go I'm in a corner Don't know which way to turn Don't think I'll ever learn I see your image I hear your every word My memory is undeterred I've fallen on the floor All caught up in a net Covering my face I try my hardest to forget That we never said goodbye before I let it go I've fallen, I'm all caught up in a net Covering my face I try my hardest to forget That we never said goodbye before I let it go We never really tried before I let it go

Moon lights the grass on a distant hill You once lay beneath that tree Now the house is cold and still But your hair's still woven with leaves Beyond your walls through endless blue Comes a voice that knows your name It whispers all your dreams to you And sets your heart aflame Look me in the eyes while they're still open Love is blazing there as ever as always Step outside and lift your head Your breath rises up and fades Light years the glow of stars has stretched But you think you need more space Cast your hands into the sky Constellations in your palm If you took a step, you might just fly Yet the night calls on Look me in the eyes while they're still open While we've got this life, there is still time to hope You'd know them anywhere, wide awake in all ways Love is blazing there as ever as always Even as the moon falls, the sun soon will rise So don't let go It's not too late It's time to wake So open your eyes When you wonder if the love you thought was real is really gone Don't let it go It's not too late while we're alive Look me in the eyes while they're still open While we've got this life, there is still time to hope You'd know them anywhere, wide awake in all ways Love is blazing there as ever as always Love is blazing there as ever as always Love is blazing there as ever as always

Too simple you know... Playing outside: Climb a ladder, slide down All the way you go To where your heart beats all of its own I'd like it to be like it was back then I wish I could be innocent again People I see waiting for their lives Pushing on impatiently All the ways they try To fill a well that's long run dry They'd like it to be like it was back then Living in a world innocent again Losing myself sitting on a train Same trip every single day Calling out their games Pretending I am not one of them But I am yes I am, who's the fool then? Why can't we all be innocent again? How do I stop myself from tumbling down A road that will never change How do I set my hands and feet upon the ground Stand up so I can rearrange Come on let's face it now It's time to mend We can never be innocent again Remember Got to surrender To where your heart beats all of its own

You're beautiful You don't even know it You're one of a kind And you're all mine You're in control But you never show it You come out looking fine Every time You know you drive me crazy But I wouldn't want it any other way I'm head over heels I'm out of my mind You turn me upside down And inside out But I never complain I actually like it You'll never see me down When you come around You know you drive me crazy But I wouldn't want it any other way You know I like how you play me And I wouldn't want it any other way

For all I know You could be the one for me I'd like to see where this goes In spite of our uncertainty There's no sense in worrying about Things we don't control In the end, what's done is done So why not let it go I always try to look at the bright side Still it's the darkness that lingers instead I focus on the inside But as hard as you try You can't take back what you said The night we met I saw your face glowing from the street I smiled and said "I think I've finally been set free" Now there's something in your eyes I never saw before All that truth I found in you I can't find anymore I always try to look at the bright side Still it's the darkness that lingers instead I focus on the inside But as hard as you try You can't take back what you said All this hurt and regret Will keep lingering, lingering As we try to forget And put it all out of our minds I always try to look at the bright side Still it's the darkness that lingers instead I focus on the inside But as hard as you try You can't take back... I always try to look at the bright side But you can't take back what you said I focus on the inside But as hard as you try You can't take back what you said

Before I speak, you say you know We can't go on like this anymore We lost it a long, long time ago And it'll never be like it was before Your mind's made up and so is mine No need to talk it out this time Anytime we go will suit me fine It's best we leave this place behind This time around you'll see Everything is all right by me We've already gone our separate ways You'll be fine and I'll be okay 'Cause this time it's forever Another week, another month has passed Getting over you was never fast I used to have trouble putting you in the past But now I know this love could never last This time around you'll see Everything is all right by me We've already gone our separate ways You'll be fine and I'll be okay Yeah this time around you'll see We held out so long, it's a mystery This time, this time was all that I could take (Oh no) This time around you'll see It was never all right with you or me Our words all lies, our hearts were a mess Now we're suffering all this loneliness This time it would be different If we gave it one more shot

Snow falls down And everything is dying all around Night falls earlier every day Darkness calls every night Keeps me awake until daylight Voices in my head won't let me be It doesn't matter how hard I try I guess I'll just sleep when I die The peacefulness I crave will arrive And then I'll kiss my sleepless nights goodbye I saw a man Whose smile made me think he'd understand I told him all of my fears It felt so right A warm place to lay my head at night But like the others, soon he would disappear It doesn't matter how hard I try I guess I'll just sleep when I die It doesn't matter how hard I try I guess I'll just sleep when I die The peacefulness I've feigned will arrive And then I'll kiss my sleepless nights goodbye Sleepless nights goodbye Sleepless nights

I remember a future with you After dinner when we're all through The sun will be setting the trees all on fire We'll stay and we'll sit for a little while 'Cause I'll remember that one time and so will you But we'll tell all the stories 'cause the telling's the truth I remember a future with you Windows down, speeding under the moon The dashboard will be a drum for your hands And our voices will echo across the farmland 'Cause I'll know every word and so will you And we'll sing all the louder 'cause the singing's the truth In this future world I lived with you This make believe world we both knew In the burning sky world I remember with you With you I remember a future with you Birthday cakes that will turn our tongues blue We'll turn to each other with colorful grins And play the game where everyone wins 'Cause I'll still love you so much, and you'll love me too So we'll keep playing our game 'cause the playing's the truth In this future world I lived with you This make believe world we both knew In the I-love-you-game world I remember with you The philosopher said there's no deeper despair Than remembering what will never be there Well I'll be waiting down that lonely road Living our dream, hoping you'll show I remember a future with you After dinner when we are all through The sun will be setting my heart all on fire And I'll stay and I'll know what it is to desire Now you remember that one time and so do I But our future has no words, not even "goodbye" And this is the world I'm wishing for My make believe world, nothing more I'm alone in the world I remember with you This future world I remember Our future world I'm all alone and waiting Waiting here for you In this future world The spinning nowhere world I knew with you The spinning nowhere world

The sun wraps its golden arms around The hills and valleys and fields And it crowns kings in every movement Every breath and each step that you take If you turn the right direction in the light You can see past your mistakes When it feels like you've never been gone It can heal all you had thought that was wrong A man working in the sun reaches out to her He wonders what it's all about The wheels have been in motion There's never been time to be awake But now they've seen the ocean The stars in the night were in place When it feels like you've never been gone It can heal all you had thought that was wrong There's no starting over The cards have been played The trick is to kindle the flame every day

You know you caused me a lot of strife All those years you made me hide So I tried to ruin your life And forget about your sweeter side But I've lied about who I love Tried to make folks do what I think they should And though I hardly ever rise above Deep down I know that I am good Everyone in the world is an asshole But underneath has a really good heart So let's air it all out then let it all go This is where the living starts She kicked her daughter out of the house "You'll burn in hell" she shouted in her face But she stopped the cat from killing a meadow mouse And always cries through Amazing Grace He tried to make it look like a fall When he busted his best friend's head But his final words were "I love you all -- Take care, y'all, when I am dead" Everyone in the world is an asshole But underneath has a really good heart So let's air it all out then let it all go This is where the living starts I've had the dream a thousand nights We forget all the hurt and fights Just shrug it off and take a chance Get off your grouchy ass and dance (dance, dance) 'Cause everyone in this room is an asshole But underneath has a really good heart So let's air it all out then let it all go This is where the living starts Yeah, everyone in the world is an asshole But underneath has a really good heart So let's air it all out then let it all go This is where the living starts Now we've all swatted flies with pride Or liked the thought of someone tripping up We cheat and deny, we scowl and deride But we can still choose the loving cup
