You Do 04:47
Some days the rain will fall There's no one you can hold In the middle of your life The Universe is your home Don't you want to be with me? I'll keep you safe and warm It's a cruel, cruel world That only we can understand There's no one who understands me like you do You do But there's no way for me to get through to you Through to you I can't tell you I love you like I used to Used to But I know in time The rain will fall The sun will shine Again Today I saw the sky Painted in violet and orange I thought it was the Universe calling to me That I would be yours And I know Some day awaits Where patiently I know that I can find you now Somehow your mind Will wake up one day soon There's no one who understands me like you do You do But there's no way for me to get through to you Through to you I can't tell you I love you like I used to Used to But I know in time The sun will shine through the rain again Mommy and Daddy, they don't need you anymore Not as bad as I do You can come over to my house now I won't smother you It'll feel so comfortable You'll never want to leave again There's no one who understands you like I do I do But there's no way for me to get through to you Through to you I can't tell you I love you like I used to Used to But I know in time The sun will shine through the rain again And we'll be right where we should have been all along

I was sitting in the backseat when you turned around Told me you loved me and that I was perfect for you I know you saw my soul then I know you saw my soul then What happened in between the time of then and now? Too scared to love, too perfect somehow I know you saw my soul then I know you saw my soul then Don't lie to yourself, I know you saw this Don't lie to yourself, I ain't lying anymore Don't lie to yourself, I know you saw this Don't lie to yourself, I ain't lying anymore Don't lie to yourself, I know you saw this Don't lie to yourself, I know you saw this Don't lie to yourself Don't lie to yourself Different worlds, different lives, still the same C'mon baby, don't you want to pick my brain? I know you'll see my soul there I know you'll see my soul there I know that you can love with all you have Can you be the pretty girl I know, hold my hand? I know you'll see my soul there I know you'll see my soul there Don't lie to yourself, I know you saw this Don't lie to yourself, I ain't lying anymore Don't lie to yourself, I know you saw this Don't lie to yourself Don't lie to yourself, I know you saw this Don't lie to yourself, I know you saw this Don't lie to yourself Don't lie to yourself Feel those feelings again, I know they're somewhere Feel those feelings again, I know they're somewhere Feel those feelings again, I know they're somewhere Feel those feelings again Somewhere, somehow you know Somewhere, somehow you know Time to come out now I've got the shovel To dig you from your grave Well you'll never have to go back in there again I'll always be there for you

Secret Sky 04:38
Darling take my hand Fly me towards your secret sky Take the veil off of my eyes I want to see you in the truth Take me to your savior I want to lay flowers at her feet The silence here is deafening Won't you please say a word? Say anything Even though I can feel your hand I can feel the warm, sweet touch You're not a thing I can possess Store and keep inside of my chest So take your great big smile up to God Tell Her you're ready to see everything You save yourself If you save yourself You're saving me Your liberation is my Destination I'm coming But we both know You've gotta it yourself I'll follow I'll follow you I know you Maybe you've thought it through and you You wanna go this one alone and Leave me to waste Oh but why, what's holding you? Why do you want to go alone? You might be the energy but I'm the direction I'll put forward my foot foot forward and You can walk behind Oh but know that I I can't say I know just how I've been holding on for so long that I I can hold on forever I've been holding on for so long that I I can hold on forever ever ever But we both know You've gotta do it yourself But we both know You've gotta do it yourself But I wanna watch you fly Wanna watch you fly Spread your winds and fly Fly Fly

In the desert air Standing on the road Facing the sun Breathe in Lift up your arms Open your heart You can sort it out Inside of yourself Seeing things as they really are But if you get tripped up and down all around Please Don't try So hard To find your light It's easy To know It's all right here Waiting for only you my Precious dear Turn your face up to the light Set up for you Set up for you Although I don't know Exactly what to do With all I I feel in my heart It doesn't compare at all To what I know we can feel In our mind's eye In a quiet room Crossing your legs Facing yourself The touch of the breath Right under your nose Is totally Where you sort it out Get rid of your mind And see things as they really are But if you get tripped and down all around Please Don't try So hard To find your light It's easy To know It's all right here Waiting for only you my Precious dear Turn your face up to the light Set up for you Set up for you And though I don't know Exactly what we'll do But I Feel in my heart, yeah It doesn't compare at all To what I know we can feel In our mind's eye Your mind's eye Your mind's I Your mind's eye Your mind's I

I've got a bad feeling about this And I don't know the reasons why I find myself without any answers Looking for the other guy Say my name on the universal plane I know you've gotta know it still How can you say it on the universal? Everything you want is a thrill Working to thrill Cuz you were changing And I was changing Girlfriends are always changing Here we go again I've been here before It's like this place the back of my hand Letting go into a total stranger Letting go of your man I loved you Cuz you were changing And we were changing Girlfriends are always changing Changing Somehow you thought the world Would never change your mind (You now know better) But little did you know Somehow give it time, just a little bit longer And you will find that you You don't know anything at all I've got a bad feeling about this And I don't know the reasons why I think I'm starting to know Starting to know Starting to know Starting to know why We were changing The Universe is changing And we are the Universe Girlfriends are always changing Changing

I knew right from the start Someday you would be mine But you wouldn't hear me out 15 years until we recollide It's too long Too long But I keep holding on I've gotta stay strong The way out is inside And the way out is hard On the way in the jury Won't be judging you for long And on the way out the Furies Might try and steal your soul With a bullet wound to the back of your head Your mother knew right from the start Stars were perfectly aligned But you wouldn't hear her out Weeks turned into months, turned into years, turned into lives It's too long Too long But I keep holding on The way out is inside And the way out is hard On the way in the jury Won't be judging you for long And on the way out the Furies Might try and steal your soul With a bullet wound to the back of your head I failed you I failed you again and again But I know this time will be Different, different But if you can't believe me don't take me on my word Can you see the state of my soul? I burned it down Can you smell that smell? It's the stench of the old me Running down through the river I wasted so much time trying to get back to you I wanna see myself in your eyes again Every time that I failed you is still running through my head Don't scratch that itch you know will come around again I failed you I failed you again and again But I know this time will be Different, different But if you can't believe me don't take me on my word Can you see my soul? I burned it down For you
