HEAVY HIGHS 

I know that I'm not normal,

but I hope I'm not insane.

I've got a war of emotions

and it's tearing up my brain.

One moment I'm as free as a bird

and the next I'm on a plane.

This pilot's never been a friend of mine

But I'm flying just the same,

flying just the same...

 

At least I'm not falling

At least I'm not falling out of the sky

At least I'm not falling

At least I'm not falling out of the sky -

this time.

 

I know that I'm not normal,

but I know I still feel pain.

I've got a list of enemies

that I pray to everyday.

The trick is: you don't got to pay the price,

if you've never looked the part.

You tell 'em you're "just tired" while you

fix that broken heart

and oh, that's just the start...

 

At least I'm not falling

At least I'm not falling out of the sky

At least I'm not falling

At least I'm not falling out of the sky -

this time.


One Fifteen

It's not that I'm mad, it's more like regret 

for being so out there and easy to forget. 

Screaming on the inside - saying "I'm fine" - 

but nights are getting darker, and so is my mind.

So is my mind.

Need somewhere to go, I need someplace to hide. 

All these empty bottles are the only thing I've tried

My head it keeps racing, it's battering me - 

it's making sure I realize that happy isn't free. 

Happy isn't free. 


Ebb + Flow

You've got to fight your own battles

got to fight 'em till it's done

you've got to beat your own demons,

got to beat 'em till you've won.

And I'll tell you now that I won't be

the one to hold the gun

but I for sure will be your baby,

and I'll kiss you when it's done.

 

Just ride the wave and come home.

You've got to save your own soul.

 

There you go f****** things right up again,

but babe that's how it goes.

You know I know it all too well,

I feel the ebbs I feel the flows.

But, in sweet time you'll learn to tame the beast

before too much it grows

Or, at least you'll learn to hide it

before too much it shows.

 

Just ride the wave and come home.

You've got to save your own soul.  

 

And you know how it goes,

there'll be highs and there'll be lows

you can't control the world - just gotta keep going

And you know how it goes,

there'll be highs and there'll be lows

you can't control the world - just gotta keep going...

 

Just ride the wave and come home.

You've got to save your own soul.


I Don't Really Mind

Lay the score down gently 

pull the dusk into the dawn

'cause it's getting untimely

to pull myself along,

and it's getting unsightly

to watch me stumble on...

 

I think this time I feel like

I am falling down

I'll get rock steady soon

I'm making strides,

You look the same still

from the outside.

 

Take a breath now deeply,

feel the pulse inside your heart.

It's the rhythm inside me

that feeds the stops and starts.

See? I'm getting my mind beat,

by the words inside a song.

 

I think this time I feel like

I am falling down

I'll get rock steady soon

I'm making strides,

You look the same still

from the outside.

 

I'll say the words sweetly

I'll say yes, I'll say please

and I'll give you a smile; 

I'll say that I'm sorry when I burn the coffee

but I don't really mind.  

 

Take a breath now deeply,

feel the pulse inside your heart...

 

I think this time I feel like

I am falling down

I'll get rock steady soon

I'm making strides,

You look the same still from the outside.


Coming Down 

See your eyes close as the sun goes down, 

subtle light glows from the streets downtown. 

Only God knows, how I'm feeling now; 

hours pass on, never passing out. 

 

Coming down from you. 
Leaving dreams unused.

Have you heard the news? 

I've got nothing left to lose

 

Gotta hand it to ya, I'm tapped out- 

running out of reasons to back out. 

Automatic, better with than without;

feel at peace here meditating doubts.

 

Coming down from you. 
Leaving dreams unused.

Have you heard the news? 

I've got nothing left to lose


Just Like Me 

He saw her in her sleep.

It's something special.

But, we don't belong here -

we don't belong.

I think its been a week,

since you've been out there.

What makes you so scared?

Why are you so...

 

If we drove to the edge of town,

think we would make it out?

 

History repeats

but we can break it,

'cause I just can't take it anymore.

Love you're just like me,

a little bit crazy-

The thought of it pains me...

but we'll be alright 'cause

 

I'll sing a familiar tune -

our innocence is in bloom.

 

If we drove to the edge of town,

think we would make it out?

I'll sing a familiar tune -

our innocence is in bloom

 

I saw you in my sleep -

you look so much different

I'm sorry I missed it:

the rest of our lives.
