Behind every song there is a story......

ALBUM: SPEAK

 

Colorado Highway: 

It is springtime, should be raining, it is snowing like a freight train

Just as the sun, comes in and out, casting old southern shadows about

Just as I get, on that train, on that Colorado highway plain 

I may move out of this sleepy town, into the middle of a big city

You can tell I'm ready, to get out, when my leaves turn green and steady

But that doesn't mean I don't love you, it just means what it means 

That I miss you, and love you, and I hold you, in my heart on a rack

Wont' you take me, won't hold me, won't love me, like I love ya back 

It is Springtime should be raining, it is snowing like a freight train

Just as the sun comes in and out, casting old southern shadows about 

Just as I get, on that train, on that Colorado Highway plain, on that Colorado highway plain 

 

Wild and Free

Don't you want to be wild and free

 Living the life of your dreams

I don't care if you're wrong or right, I don't care if you fall or fly, you only get one life. You might as well try, try

Waste not much but give away

It feels much better to stand, under the trees as they bend 

I'd rather see you sit, beside the things that grow, from the heart of the Earth you sow what right

Would you rather be mean or would you rather be kind, lift the weight off the shoulders of the lying and blind 

To hate at all is worthless

Fall away be kept or forgotten, in someone else's heart but rotten, I'd rather be kind

Be kind 

If we fail to sing outlaid, on the sun of a distant God, I would rather choose love

I would rather choose love

Love choose 

 

Sunflower Eyes

I, I flew to you, we both knew, where that would take us 

I walk down a road, paved in chalk and gold, which way we do go, which way do I run

I would be unsurprised if I fell in love with your eyes, sunflower eyes (repeat once)

I, I would be complete if you would sit by me, for eternity

But we, we both believe that love would always leave, unless we set our hearts free

Which way do I run...........(repeat)

 

Clothes

I don't know anything at all, about you about me, about anything

I may be quiet, but I would rather watch the wind, words are stones breaking the silence and I would rather be quiet with you 

Clothes, they hang on the wall with my thoughts and I won't speak anything, because you won't hear what I'm saying 

Life is woven into a song, about peace, about pain, about everything

 

Maybe

Here we are in New York City, on this peaceful starry night

Here we are coming together, with open hearts and minds

But behind these walls, bombs light up the sky

And I often wonder, why I am safe, and you hide 

Maybe we could kill hatred, by being kind, maybe we could do better this time

You are like a child, you are like a child who always sleeps with the light on, afraid of hiding in the shadow for so long

I am a child, I am a child who always sleeps with the light on, but I will not hide in the shadow for so long

Maybe we could kill hatred, by being kind, maybe we could do better maybe we could do better this time

 

Speak

Don't worry, about what's going to happen

It's already happening and everything that's already happening, is already gone 

Speak words of kindness cause you never know, kindness speaks right from your soul

Put your heart in the palm of your hands, give it away even when it hurts the most

When you see a woman across the street, begging for change, you are the woman in reverse

So, give your heart away 

All I want to do is take a walk into the woods with you (repeat)

When the snow falls on the ground, it lights up my life with it's whiteness

Honey when you come around, you light up my life with your brightness

Don't you ever be afraid, life is just one big parade

Don't you walk around all numb, give yourself away it's just more fun

All I want to do is take a walk into the woods with you 

 

Put Down Your Gun

Don't you want to hear what I've got to say

Don't you want to hear my side

Don't you want to know who I am, behind this line

Don't you want to meet my family, understand why  we hide

Why I fight this war, I don't believe in, so they can stay alive

Put down your gun, put down your gun, put down your gun and rise

Put down your gun, lay them down by your side

I don't want to see anymore bloodshed tonight (repeat)

Come inside I offer you inflames into my home

It's no differ than what you see beyond the comfort of your own

Mine may look a little strange, my food taste a little odd, but you and I are just the same beyond this wall of love

Love

Put down your gun, lay them down by your side, I don't want to see anymore bloodshed tonight (repeat)

 

Promise Me

This is the hardest thing that I will sing, but I am going to try

I may die, you will live a longer time

Promise me, that when it is my turn to leave, that you will come say goodbye, and not cry

I will miss the way you kiss, the way you hold me so close at night

I will miss the way you love me so, but promise me you'll love once more

This is the last thing, that I will sing, but I am going to try

When I die, you will live a longer time

Promise me, that when it is my turn to leave, that you will come say goodbye

That you will always love this life
