A Way To Move On

Verse 1
You were the person that I felt closest to
I couldn't believe just how much I loved you
It seemed as if I was in a dream
Then reality began to settle in
As I saw you for who you truly were

Verse 2
I tried to change you, but that was difficult
So I accepted you for who you truly were
At times I wished I could go back in time
To the moment where we first fell in love
Everything about it seemed to be perfect

Bridge
You will always be in my heart
No matter where you are
Sometimes it hurts to know that I can't be with you
The choice I made was for the right reason
I have no regrets about it
Now I must find a way to move on

Chorus
Find a way to move on
We are no longer together
It was good while it lasted
I cannot be with you forever
Every good moment is what I will always remember
As well as the way you treated me with love

Leaving Through The Window

Verse 1
I will have to leave through the window
That is the only way to exit
You built this house intentionally without doors
To keep me locked inside
I should have known who you were before accepting your invitation
Now I am being held against my will

Verse 2
I've worked out a strategy
I know exactly what to do
When the right moment presents itself
I will execute my plan
If I hold back, I will die from your torture
I refuse to suffer under your control
I am leaving through the window

Bridge
I have been saving up my strength
I've never been this determined to succeed
Failure is clearly not an option
Now the time has come for me to be strong
I'm confident that this won't take very long

Chorus
To escape, I cannot run out
I will have to jump out by leaving through the window
Time is ticking away, I have to do this today
I want to be free so I am putting my fears aside
I refuse to suffer under your control
I am leaving through the window

Here I Am

Verse 1
I discovered a new creation
By falling away from temptation
I do not pay much attention
To the long awaited separation
I regained my image in my conversation
What really helped me the most was the motivation
I did the math, solved the equation
As a result, my life has less complication
I am able to enjoy this celebration
I could not have done it without my determination

Verse 2
Miscommunication led to a conviction
What I did not like the most was the assumption
That is a thing of the past
Now I have time for preparation
Even though my words aren't as powerful as my action
I successfully completed an education
I could not have done it without my determination

Chorus 1
Here I am, stronger than I have ever been
Here I am, smarter than I have ever been
Here I am, more self-assured than I have ever been

Chorus 2
Here I am, stronger than I have ever been
Here I am, smarter than I have ever been
Here I am, more self-assured than I have ever been
Here I am, feeling better than I have ever been
Go ahead and make a duplication
I promise you it isn't a violation

The Fog of War

Verse 1
Preparations are in order
The president has declared to send troops overseas
Even though the army is stretched thin
He is confident that the soldiers
Will perform their duties successfully
The protests have already begun

Verse 2
Soldiers are dying every day
There's not enough space for their bodies on the air plane
Citizens want the troops to be pulled out
Their government disagrees
They are told that they must remain to maintain the peace

Bridge
Is there ever a way to ask a man
To be the next one to die?
Is there ever a way to ask a woman
To be the next one to be tortured?

Chorus 1
The fog of war had blurred our vision
Had robbed our common sense
The fog of war interferes with rational thinking
Replaces sound judgement

Chorus 2
The fog of war has blurred our vision
Has robbed our common sense

Don’t Go To Strangers

Verse 1
When I was just a young boy
My mother said to me
“Beware of strangers, my son
In the dark cold places they’ll keep
Beware of strangers, my son
Beware of their hidden motives
They’ll try to befriend you
While planning to take your life away”

Verse 2
“Don’t go talking to them
You have nothing to discuss
They’ll twist every word you say
Try to convince you they bring no harm
Entice you to play with them
To hold their hand and follow them
Then take you where the lights are dim
And shadows are all you can see”

Verse 3
Now when I was just a young boy
My teacher said to me
“Beware of strangers, my student
But if by chance you should meet
Beware of their cunning nature
And where they lurk around
They’ll spin a web of lies
And play with your head
To get you to trust them
And you’ll never be seen again”

Chorus 1
“Don’t go to strangers
Stay close to home
Don’t go to strangers
I will protect you”

Chorus 2
“Don’t go to strangers
Stay close to home
Don’t go to strangers
I will protect you
Don’t go to strangers, boy
Or you will surely die”

Chorus 3
“Don’t go to strangers
Stay close to home
Don’t go to strangers
I will protect you
Don’t go to strangers
It’s dangerous
Don’t go to strangers, boy
Or you will surely die”

Sonny, Please

Verse 1
Sonny, please
It’s not time to call it an end
I want to give us another try
I’m connected to you in many ways
And you realize that, so don’t pretend you don’t
We’re at a crossroad, I know
I don’t want you to leave me alone
With a sense of failure and regret
When both feelings are hard to shake
And being in love is more than I can take

Verse 2
I know that nothing lasts forever
And that all good things must come to an end
But I refuse to give up on us
When there’s a lot worth fighting for
I’ve revealed myself to you
In ways I thought I never could
And when you become more of yourself
You are living your own life
I don’t want to be rejected
I don’t want to be cast aside
Nothing will cause the contents of my heart
To run and hide

Bridge
I will beg, I will plead
For you not to leave me
I’ll go nowhere, I’ll stay right here
Letting you go shows that I don’t care
I will hope, I will pray
For you to change your mind today

Chorus 1
Sonny, please
Pretty, pretty, pretty please
Don’t leave me with nothing
But memories of you
I’m trying as hard as I can
To make you understand
That when I confessed my love for you
I truly meant it

Chorus 2
Sonny, please
Don’t leave me with nothing
I’m trying as hard as I can
Because I love you

Thank You For The Years

Verse 1
When I was younger
I was shy and quiet
Though I had things to say
I wouldn’t speak my mind
Even if I wasn’t alone
I still felt lonely
All that changed
When you came into my life

Verse 2
You understood me
When other thought I was confusing
I opened up to you
And you saw my point of view
When I felt like giving up
You convinced me otherwise
The time you spent with me
Truly changed my life

Bridge
I cherish you
And everything you’ve done for me
I’m forever grateful
For your patience and empathy
You’ve given me the greatest gift of all
Unconditional love
I feel it every time I breathe

Chorus 1
Thank you for the years
You’ve been by my side
I never could have lasted
This long without your support
My heart overflows with emotions
Both strong and true
I have grown in many ways
All because of the love you gave to me

Chorus 2
Thank you for the years
You’ve been by my side
I never could have lasted
This long without your support
My heart overflows with emotions
Both strong and true
I have grown in many ways
All because of your love

Chorus 3
Thank you for the years
You’ve been by my side
I never could have survived
Without your guidance
My heart overflows with emotions
Like they’ve never before
I have grown in many ways
All because of you and your love

Reveal
 
Verse 1
I don't know
I do not know if you know who I am
I'm just a guy who stands five foot six
And weighs a hundred and forty pounds
I've wondered
I have wondered if you have ever noticed me
I don't stand out
And I'm definitely not a part of the in-crowd
We've been introduced on a few occasions
I remember each time we have met
There is so much that I would like to say to you
 
Verse 2
I'm hoping
I am hoping that I don't embarrass myself
Taking chances in life comes with no guarantees
I wished they did
I'm thinking
I am thinking about you and I
Sometimes I over-analyze situations
Causing me to get ahead of myself
We've been introduced on a few occasions
How could I forget the times we have met
There is so much that I would like you to hear
 
Verse 3
I'm opening myself to you
Heartfelt emotions are what I want to get through
I'm flawed and I know
Please don't try to hide it, you are too
Bring out the best in me
I'm determined to try the same with you
Expect nothing less from me
I'm more than willing to explore whatever lies ahead
We've been introduced on a few occasions
You caught my attention at the first second
There is so much that I would like you to remember
 
Chorus 1
Let me begin by saying that I love you
I've never felt this way before
My heart starts beating faster
Every time I get closer to you
Is the feeling mutual
Or have I spoken too soon
Either way I want you to reveal yourself
The way I have done with you
 
Chorus 2
I love you, oh yes I do
I've never felt this way before
My heart starts beating faster
Every time I get closer to you
Is the feeling mutual
Or have I spoken too soon
Either way I want you to reveal yourself
The way I have done with you

Third Eye Open

Verse 1
Memories of your lie beneath my feet
Like shattered pieces of glass
Thinking of each one of them
Makes my delicate heart skip a beat
Lingering emotions stir themselves up
When I see couples holding hands
I regret the fact that I wasn't able
To be fully honest with you
 
Verse 2
Tossing and turning is what I do
Throughout most of the night
I often yearn for your touch
Cuddling and spooning the way that we did
Sleeping on the other side of the bed
Waking up and making it together
Then kissing you full of affection
As we headed out into the concrete safari
 
Verse 3
I've got you etched inside of me
As well as other countless possibilities
Of what you and I could have became
But you just took off, you went on the run
Being stranded in the ruins of our encounters
Were a blessing in disguise
It proved to me that I'm much stronger
Than I gave myself credit for

Bridge
It's the little things that ignite
The good times which we shared
And it's the big things which occasionally keep me guessing
About your state of mind
About where I stood on your priority scale
But I'm tossing all that, burning all that away

Chorus
I was blind but now I see
The kind of person who you really are
I became enamoured with you very quickly
There were a few warning signs
But at least they were not far

Singles Going Steady
 
Verse 1
We are singles going steady
I want a relationship but you're not ready
I do enjoy spending time with you
We have a lot of fun together
Eggs for brunch on a Sunday morning
Trying out Japanese food for dinner
Learning how to use chopsticks
You're more open to more cultures than I am
 
Bridge 1
I've always wanted more than I could ever have
I only have half of you
I want you entirely
I know that you are looking for love
But you don't love me
 
Verse 2
Meeting a lot of new people
Going to places that I've never been to
Stepping out of my element
Discovering the world is smaller than I thought
Being able to be myself
Acting and thinking the way I am
Being proud of my identity
Though you only see a fraction of it
 
Bridge 2
I've always wanted more than I could ever have
I only have half of you
I want you entirely
You don't know that I'm looking for love
I can see myself loving you someday
 
Verse 3
We are singles going steady
I want a relationship but you're not ready
I've always wanted more than I could ever have
I only have half of you
I want you entirely
I know that you are looking for love
But you don't love me
 
Bridge 3
I've always wanted more than I could ever have
I only have half of you
I want you entirely
You don't know that I know you're looking for love
I use to be afraid of it
Now I'm not
You've always been open to it
But not with me
 
Chorus 1
Seeing each other is not the same as dating
I really like you
You are different in a good way
My heart is open, you don't have to knock
Just come right in
Many questions run through my mind
I hesitate to ask you some of them
Because I don't know how you would react
So we'll just continue to be singles going steady
 
Chorus 2
Seeing each other is not the same as dating
I really like you
You are different in a good way
My heart is open, you don't have to knock
Just come right in
Many questions run through my mind
I hesitate to ask you some of them
Because I don't know how you would react
So we'll just continue to be singles going steady

Outro
Ba daa daa ba daa daa
Do do e ooh ooh ooh
Ba daa daa ba daa daa
Do do e oh oh oh
