lighthouse

It’s never easy going through what you’re going through
When insanity and your world collide
Out of the woodwork they come to your side
And they’ll give you unsolicited advice
That will make you think twice
But I believe in you more than I ever have
Cause I see things in you that you never have

I’ll help you find your way and guide you home
I’ll be your lighthouse
You’re stronger than you know, still afloat
You just need some light in this dark
I’ll be your light source

It’s never easy looking ahead when your head’s stuck down
But if you continue this way, you’ll fall down
Into the depths but I won’t let you drown
The echo of what I said still stays true
Keep your chin up darling don’t be blue
Only time will heal your hurting heart
But I’ll be there, I’m always here

I’ll help you find your way and guide you home
I’ll be your lighthouse
You’re stronger than you know, still afloat
You just need some light in this dark
I’ll be your light source

When the waves crash down
And the fog rolls in
When all is lost and you can’t swim
Let my light remind you
Of your strength within

I’ll help you find your way and guide you home
I’ll be your lighthouse
You’re stronger than you know, still afloat
You just need some light in this dark
I’ll be your light source

young forever



The streets were our race track, the city our empire
We were invincible, unstoppable
As I grabbed your hand. We made a pact to stay young forever, in touch forever.

Warriors of the night, looking for a fight
Driving down the highway flipping off the cops
Singing every lyric as a blueprint to our life feeling the emotion like it was written for us

We were young, proud and naive
Yearning to grow up and hoping to get out

Shopping mall kingdoms, haunted cemetery playground
Coffee and cigarettes, stolen Smirnoff
Midnight adventures, motel after parties, we made a vow to stay young forever

Champions of the thrill, searching for ourselves
Power of suggestion became part of us
We were working for the weekend and not to survive
Everyday adventures were enough of a high

We were young, proud and naive
Yearning to grow up and hoping to get out
We were cool, strong and seen
Hoping to find love and independence

Nostalgia's a curse and a gift - but I embrace it
If I could go back then – and not just remember when
I’d be more appreciative
I’d slow it down and live in the moment…

We were young, proud and naive
Yearning to grow up and hoping to get out
We were cool, strong and seen
Hoping to find love and independence
We were young, proud and naive
but most of all we were free

back to the start again



I feel numb cause I’ve been here before
I‘m dizzy from running in circles
I thought maybe this time, but I’ve thought that before

I feel let down by my own rapport
An internal I told you so
I’ve set these rules, but I’ve broke them before

This investment of energy brought me no return
Your superficial conformity I saw right through
This familiar departure, dejavu
And I’m back to the start again
Back to the start again

I feel less anxious every time
Stuck in the cycle of goodbye
There’s always next time, but I’ve said that before

This investment of energy brought me no return
Your superficial conformity I saw right through
This familiar departure, dejavu
And I’m back to the start again
Back to the start again

Familiar chilling comfort
In a pattern grown old
I’m surprised I can still get emotional
With every failed attempt
I lose faith in commitment
And my judgment

This investment of energy brought me no return
Your superficial conformity I saw right through
This familiar departure, dejavu
And I’m back to the start again
Back to the start again

i cant stop thinking about you




You had my heart racing (racing)
Right from the start, right from the start
You got my mind spinning (spinning)
Lost in deep thought, lost in deep thought

You’re an easy rider, big smiler
I can hear the horns, feel the drums
Like a parade in my stomach

I can’t stop, I can’t stop thinking about you.
I can’t stop, I can’t stop thinking about you.
About you. About you.

You got my knees shaking (shaking)
Weak from the start, weak from the start
You hold my thoughts captive (captive)
With such a firm grip, such a firm grip

I feel your laughter, an old soul
You're a free spirit drawn my way
Come dance in my corner

I can’t stop, I can’t stop thinking about you.
I can’t stop, I can’t stop thinking about you.
About you. About you.

Midday dreams, late night philosophy
I look in your eyes, the look in your eyes
Like the ocean depths to explore
Dark and unknown

I can’t stop, I can’t stop thinking about you.
I can’t stop, I can’t stop thinking about you.
About you. About you.
