Caught up on You

You came out of nowhere on a local train
Must have been some kind of twist
I barely took a second to catch my breath
No way could I ever resist
Whoever said temptation was an easy fight
Has never had to look in your eyes
Absorbing the very essence of you
In them the heavens skies

Cant get you out of my mind
It’s an all consuming kind of desire
I smile even when I’m alone
You are my wind, my light, my fire
So caught up in you

Just a moment in time but the memory lives on
Still imagine you here with me now
Your arms wrapped tightly around me
Strange to know that you’re gone
The touch of your hands all consuming
You’re breath on my neck, so alive
When reality hits I’ll surely be broken
Not sure how I’m going to survive

Can’t get you out of my mind
It’s an all consuming kind of desire
I smile even when I’m alone
You are my wind, my light, my fire
So caught up in you

We’ll be there

Vocal 1

When the world is a little upside down
And things don’t line up straight
Take the world off your shoulders
And imagine a place you create
A place where the sun’s always shining
Surrounded by people who care
There’s good time afoot, can you feel it?
I’ll be right there beside you I swear

Chorus Vocal 1

This pain won’t last forever
You just gotta stay strong
You have the power within you
You’ve known it all along
I’ll be there, I’ll be there

Vocal 2

I feel you out there waiting
I’ve just gotta find me a way
To put one foot in front of the other
And make it through each day
Oh how I long to hold you
To feel your loving embrace
To feel something deep inside of me
To make a brand new start

Chorus Vocal 2

This pain won’t last forever
I just gotta try to stay strong
I have the power within me
I guess I’ve known it all along
You’ll be there, you’ll be there

Vocal 1

We haven’t met yet but I feel it
Can’t wait to feel the warmth of your sun
Was made to make you feel special
And to have all our demons undone
Can’t wait for the day, can you feel it?
The touch of your hands in my hair
So take a step forward my darling
To that new start

Chorus Vocal 1 & 2

This pain won’t last forever
We’ve just gotta stay strong
We hold all the power within us
We’ve known it all along
We’ll be there, we’ll be there

Holding On

Desolate landscape; broken glass, as far as the eye can see
It’s a feeling I can’t seem to shake, without you next to me
Nothing moving forward, no point in turning back
Scratched  beyond the surface, it all near fades to black

Hot black tar on the road below; a cold sweat takes the wheel
White light, searing pain. What else is there to feel?

Holding on for my life, the trains not slowing down
Holding on for my life, feel like I’m going to drown
Heaven sent you to take my breath away
But the devil was breathing fire
Too blind to see the real you, tangled in sweet desire

Lonely nights and  ghost filled days cling to the life inside
The devils a constant companion now, ripping at my sides
Ain’t no angels to stop the rush, to drink the tears I’ve cried
To take the steps back, to put things right,  to undo all the lies
Don’t love you anymore but the hole is gaping wide
There ain’t no bottom and there ain’t no top, it’s a sordid freak show ride

Holding on for my life, the trains not slowing down
Holding on for my life, feel like I’m going to drown
Heaven sent you to take my breath away
But the devil was breathing fire
Too blind to see the real you, tangled in sweet desire

Lift the bonds of insanity, break these ghoulish chains
You haven’t seen the last of me. I will rise from these gritty remains
