In Line With The Broken-Hearted

In Your Shadow

i was walking in your shadow
barely faded lines
without warning
you were taken
by my grey-green eyes

without words it’s a pity
i will fall behind
sing it sweetly now
i will show you how
and you start to slide

you fell into my arms

clearly wanting, only waiting
guarded carefully
only time will tell your story
but not faithfully

have you heard?
in this city you’re just one more lie
leaving everything
it’s the cost it brings
you won’t say you tried

you fell into my arms

Hesitate

it was one reminder of many had of you
always saying something that we both know is true

everything you are makes me hesitate
you don’t speak with your heart
i can’t walk away

your own fantasy’s gone
now the clock won’t stop racing
take back every doubt
if you don’t, i can’t save it

maybe tell me one thing that stings a little less
and not that i should know that i just don’t trust
myself

everything you are makes me hesitate
you don’t speak with your heart
i can’t walk away

your own fantasy’s gone
now the clock won’t stop racing
take back every doubt
if you don’t, i can’t save it

The Lovely Ones

and so the story goes
the plainest girl you know is not the fantasy
with happy, starry eyes she takes them by surprise
and oh, they’re so, so pleased

where blame is here and there
your guilt is everywhere
you wait for one mistake
the ever gentle man will tear her down again
and you’ll be there to praise

the lovely ones
all come undone

the very thing you hate will have you giving thanks
suspend your own belief
until you can’t afford another closing door
regret and jealousy

the lovely ones
all come undone

One Hand Away From Out

too scared to be your baby doll and still believe
that you’re too scared to live out loud
what do we need

the little girl inside of me was lost and found
and when she fell into your arms
she hit the ground

you’re not the only one who had to break a heart
one hand away from out, it’s not my fault

before the crazy, before me
you always knew
that you would find the thing to be before it flew

with one foot at my lonely door, your shadow bare
i’m standing on the other side
you know i’m there

you’re not the only one who had to break a heart
one hand away from out, it’s not my fault

In Line With the Broken-Hearted

moving forward, it goes line by line
lonely moments between wasting time

if you wanted, you could be anybody, they say…
find your spot in line with the broken-hearted
and wait…

bullied open, nearly endless fight
sinking under your own secret life

if you wanted, you could be anybody, they say…
find your spot in line with the broken-hearted
and wait…

slow but focused, barely hear the lies
simple pictures of your own demise

if you wanted, you could be anybody, they say
find your spot in line with the broken-hearted
and wait…

When it Started

whosever frozen heart you are
take the long way there when you’re building it
but it’s still tumbling down

and if you wait for a while
there might be one small smile in the thick of it
that will adjust your heart

you were nothing when it started
i built you up and now you are just another memory

when every blue sky meets a storm
your tiny cloud can’t hide from the poetry
of its amazing light

with all the chaos that you want
you make the most of this lovely tragedy
before you lose your nerve

you were nothing when it started
i built you up and now you are just another memory

and every waving goodbye
becomes a part of your favorite melody
and you forget tonight

you were nothing when it started
i built you up and now you are just another memory

Even Now

why did you ask me what’s wrong
you don’t want to know and can’t help me
but just play along

i wake up beside you
and sometimes that’s all that it takes
it’s never just one thing
but a mountain of so many little things

i’m so bored, and you know
but you think it’s just today

small time adventures are easy
so that’s what we’ll do
plenty of nothing is something
if left up to you

being alone but together is how we stay free
i know that you wonder
if you are the best one for me

i’m so bored, and you know
but you think it’s just today

is it worth the heartache
is this what you want from me
even now…

i’m so bored, and you know
but you think it’s just today

Fragile

I’m pretty sure I told you
that i would be the strong one
i can’t believe the decisions
that brought me to this moment

every word is on fire as i read them
though unnoticed
now I don’t know if i was unhappy
before knowing

stamp me with fragile and put me away
enjoying the torture won’t make it okay
you don’t want to be with me anyway

what has this symptom done
very tempting and disarming
i start to agonize
while you’re doing all the charming

when finally you’re convinced
that I’m easy to be broken
i try to be so still
but you bury me in motion

stamp me with fragile and put me away
enjoying the torture won’t make it okay
you don’t want to be with me anyway

you wanted to stop it and everything…

stamp me with fragile and put me away
enjoying the torture won’t make it okay

Maybe

every night that fell apart
in pieces that you made
was left right where you laid it down
i didn’t think you could change

on any other starry night
the sight of you would make it right
the slightest wind would help me breathe
and everything would spin

maybe this time, baby you will be mine
and anything that you say makes me sway
baby, won’t you stay?

waited through the worst of it
while each one was your dream
let you think you’d be a star
which distanced you from me

on any other starry night
the sight of you would make it right
the slightest wind would help me breathe
and everything would spin

maybe this time, baby you will be mine
and anything that you say makes me sway
baby, won’t you stay?

sorrow won’t protect you now
you’ve said just what you feel
if i can’t have the best of you
than no one ever will

on any other starry night
the sight of you would make it right
the slightest wind would help me breathe
and everything would spin

maybe this time, baby you will be mine
and anything that you say while we sway
baby, won’t you stay?
baby, please stay
baby, won’t you stay?

You Are The Radio (I Am Your Song)

wishing you well from afar
the safest place by a mile
sleeping inside, biding my time
while you find what’s greener
wishing  you well from afar, there you are

only a better man than you are
could play this one cleaner
you are the radio and i am your song

please, please do not carry on
my breath is held for your sign
breathing a sigh, watching her cry
while you try to feel her
wishing  you well from afar, there you are

only a better man than you are
could play this one cleaner
you are the radio and i am your song

only a better man than you are
would know i’m what’s greener
you are the radio and i am your song

this place is not where we start
and those words are not who we are
careful to be what they all say
and knowing it’s sweeter
wishing you well from afar, here we are

only a better man than you are
could play this one cleaner
you are the radio and i am your song

only a better man than you are
would know i’m what’s greener
you are the radio and i am your song

Make Me Stop

please wait until it’s dark, you won’t last
if every time you fell down i wouldn’t laugh

it’s never a good time to talk to you
but i won’t let up

if you’d had enough
you’d do anything to make me stop
if you feel like waking upI’ll go anywhere, but we should start
we should start

took every part of me from my mouth
so thoughtful of feelings you don’t allow

it’s never a good time to talk to you
but i won’t let up

if you’d had enough
you’d do anything to make me stop
if you feel like waking upI’ll go anywhere, but we should start
we should start

if you’d had enough
you’d do anything to make me stop
when you feel like waking up
we’ll go everywhere, but we should start
we should start
