I know a lady With a heart of gold As of lately If you offered her a smile she’d fold Do you remember? You used to glow like a dream It’s December Now you wonder Where the hell you’ve been But don’t let go The more you try you’ll know Hold on tight Oo I know a brother He is seventeen He’ll discover The world is nothing but a crazy scene While you’re younger Make your own mistakes They’ll discover If you really have what it takes They’ll try to bring you down

I’m living in a place where love and hate Knows my name and puts my faith through haste I’m running, I’m steady I see it, I feel it Though I am a diamond in the rough Yet I sweep myself under the rug I’m ready, I’m heavy I see it, I feel it Faded space, vague memories What I would give for sanity I’m inside, I want out They are lingering around I’m inside, I want out They are holding me down I crave a little Midas touch Yet my heart says it is too much I’m running, I’m steady I see it, I feel it Though I hold my body in decline While I try to cross the finish line I’m ready, I’m heavy I see it, I feel it I’m breaking down like the wall of Jericho Rubbles filled with dust of vertigo No more searching for light in the dark I am spent yet I’ll stand to make my mark

Maybe a drive to Mexico will clear my head My heart is drowning Maybe I ought to let it go These heavy things While I’m clinging Like what is missing, time is ticking So far, I don’t know where I’m going But I’ll be praying for me So long, it's been a stoic story But I’ll be making a plea Maybe I ought to roll the dice Never think twice and realize The road is tough, the waves are rough Yet it’s not enough To keep me From sailing and moving So far, I don’t know where I’m going But I’ll be praying for me So long, it's been a stoic story But I’ll be making a plea For a third eye Cause I am all I’ve got I am all I’ve got

It’s so easy to say Things you don’t mean anyway It’s so easy to do Things you wish would fade away Take a breath, take it slow Don’t you know Your thought is your home Your heart is your throne Measure what you’re worth and make it known Nothing will break you down Stomping on solid ground with you Is what I’m gonna do Well you might wonder what it’s worth To strip off your disguise You might feel the scars and bruises Locked inside must be wise It is safe behind your windowpane But there’s an hourglass Hanging on your door Take a leap of faith It’s not tool late (CHORUS) You’ve gotta Keep it strong You’ve gotta Never let go Best of all You’re not alone Cause I’m with you And it’s what I choose to do

Save the day for me my dear Wouldn’t it be lovely just to hold you near? You know this, you know I’m falling in love, falling in love Sway your fingers on my lips Ask anything My heart is yours and for keeps Could it be, could we be Falling in love, falling in love? Things I feel, you cannot see I hold within my everlasting Burning desire and awe for you You are my perfection And you fade my blues Silver and gold cannot give Us what we need When we’re way too old to live You’ll know this, you’ll know I’m falling in love, falling in love Crisscross my hand so they’ll see We’re together, Through thick and thin, wild and free I know that you know We’re falling in love

One thing that I don’t get Is how I chose you second best Don’t sail this ship alone Turn the wheel I’ll hold still The warmth of silence around your heart Like the way we felt right from the start Did you hear me say? I am sorry I am through Don’t leave in a hurry I’m still here Pictures of us would tell Of how we loved so well Sometimes it fades away But I’m headstrong Yet it feels so wrong I miss when the space between us Were only our dreams Tell me how have you been I still see your face My reflection behind the shattered glass Is protection from a lingering past But it will fade
