STORY OF LOVE

I'M MOVING TO NASHVILLE

 

 

 

THE FIRE

My life’s been walking the sidelines,
Practising all of it’s script rhymes,
Still prompted words at every turn.
Pinch, punch you push me you pull me,
Tug at me and tell me I’m crazy,
Take away my words and let me learn.

 

We were one when the fire started burning down it’s road,
One when we promised live and let live.
We were one when you said you’d never leave me here alone,
But now the flame inside begins to dim.
And we were like ooo, ooo.
We were like ooo.

 

I’ve left them to control me,
Taken me and driving me crazy,
Up every wall inside my brain.
My hands controlling the wheel,
Following my own path and not the devil’s deal,
I’m the beast inside that won’t be tamed.

 

 

We were one when the fire started burning down it’s road,
One when we promised live and let live.
We were one when you said you’d never leave me here alone,
But now the flame inside begins to dim.

My life ain’t walking the sidelines,
These words aren’t scripted they’re all mine.
Now in the fire I take my turn.

 

 

 

 

ROBIN HOOD

It’s once in a life time that chances come by,
Although we reach we can’t touch the sky.
We’ll try and try our hardest to get what we need,
We’ll play our hand it’s not always free.

The man tells us keep giving the child inside will hide,
Although we’re scared we were built on pride.
So we’ll wake up in the morning, give away what we need,
We’ll play our part it’s not always free, it’s not always free.

 

Where is the Robin Hood who will keep them on their toes?
Who will treat us fair when it’s dark and were alone?
Where is the Superman who will sweep us off our feet?
Who will watch over us on the nights we cannot sleep?

 

And as the days get darker the hope will fade,
Life is a game that can’t be played.
So save all the pennies the pounds will save themselves,
But when we call who will come to help? Who will come to help?


It gets harder and harder to get what we need,

Although we are scared we will not leave.

It gets harder and harder to breathe the air we breathe,
Although we are scared we will not leave.

 

 

 

 

PAIN

Who do you tell when the sky is falling down?
You keep on reaching for the stars but you can’t get your feet off the ground.
You’re going nowhere fast, but your heart is beating.
How much longer can you last?
‘Til you’re swallowed by the ground.

 

Pain.
Is nothing but a fear you feel inside,
And your bones will run at the speed of light.
When you feel it, when you need it, let your spirit fly away.
Away.

 

Where do you run when there’s nowhere left to hide?
You keep on giving up your time so there’s no more time left to bide.
You’re running way too fast, but your heart is beating.
How much longer can you last?
‘Til you’ve fallen to the ground.

 

Don’t be afraid to give the key to someone else,
We will unlock the box inside yourself.
And once I’ve set you free don’t be afraid to fly,
You won’t feel fear when you’re a diamond in the sky.
Now I’ve fallen to the ground.

 

 

 

 

SWIM BABY SWIM

It’s time to put my wits to test and take you out to sea,
I’ll roll with the punches when you punch below the knee.
Sail out to the ocean where no one else can see,
You’ll look for light and solid ground but you can’t have that and me.

 

This isn’t love,
It’s sea sickness, weakness, it’s coming between us.
And this isn’t love,
We’re ship wrecked and sinking, I’m jumping, I’m leaving.

 

You’re a shark in the water singing “Swim Baby Swim”.
I’m stuck at the bottom,
There’s no way I can win.
And you used to be my saviour but you’ve given that in.
There’s a shark in the water,
And without you I can’t swim.

 

This time I won’t hold my breath as we sink down in the sea,
I’m holding up that big white flag ‘cos you can’t have that and me.
You’ll swim to dry dry land I’m exhausted can’t you see,
I’ll drown up here in open land my first love is the sea.

 

 

 

 

 

STATE OF GRACE

When it rains it pours, her heart from crying.
And she’s waiting her turn but her hope is dying.
What you see is what you get, she is pure of heart.
But she hasn’t found it yet.

 

Little darling don’t you worry,
It’ll come for you.
Those who wait will get the best gift,
And that’s how we found you.
Don’t be scared the time will come for you.
And we know it’s just,
A state of Grace.

 

She has shared her men with girls so much better than them.
She has wasted her time when they can’t see whats in front of their eyes.
She’s a diamond in the rough, a gem un-noticed.
And the time it has been tough on her.

 

You’ve had your share of heartbreak,
it isn’t always fair.
But the best will come to those who will wait.
Don’t be scared the time will come for you.
And we know it’s just, yeah!

 

 

 

WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME?

Will You still love me in two years time?

When I'm broke down to the bone.

Working in fashion as a checkout girl,

Still living in my parents home.

 

Oh, I've been searching for a light in the dark,

With nowhere I can call home.

Finding that there's love in my heart,

And a place where I belong.

 

So, talk to me like lovers do,

I've never found anyone quite like you.

Stay with me and save my sanity,

But will you still love me?

Will You?

 

Will you still love me in ten years time?
When my image starts to fade.

When my adventure and courage turns to fear,

Will you promise that you'll stay?

 

I've been living in the dark with no light,

Searching for a place I'll call home.

Finding that with love there's a fight,

I'll fight to prove them all wrong.

 

Will you still love me 'til the end of time?

Will you hold me for as long as you can?

In a house by the sea, 

One dog, you & me,

No worries and no plans.

 

 

 

THE LEMON TREE

There's a place that we could be together, alone, just you and me,

There's a place that we could call home

There's a place just down the road where the grass is green and the seeds are sown,

Underneath the lemon tree.

 

That's where I'll be, 

That's where I'll be.

 

Take my hand I'll take you there a place with no worries no need to be scared,

Take my hand and I will keep you safe.

Take my hand it's time to go chasing the sun 'til the end of the road.

Underneath the lemon tree.

 

That's where I'll be, (That's where I'll be, thats where I'll be)

That's where I'll be. (That's where I'll be, thats where I'll be)

That's where I'll be, (That's where I'll be, thats where I'll be)

If you ever need me.

 

Underneath the lemon tree you can be who you want to be,

I won't judge and trees can't speak.

 

 

 

DREAMCATCHER

You're out to fix a broken heart,

Wipe away the tears I cry and paint over battle scars.

And I'm not easy to run around with,

But you're always one step ahead.

 

So don't lose faith,

Just hold my hand to keep me safe. 

The more tears I cry the less poison running through my veins. 

 

You're not like the others I've see before,

You keep me guessing with my ear pressed against the floor.

And you've been waiting for your turn to come around,

Perfect imperfection is what you've found.

 

Please don't change.

Please don't change.

 

The more tears I cry the less poison running through my veins. 

 

Dreamcatcher keep my dreams tonight,

Don't let my saviour ever leave my side.

 

 

 

WAKE UP

 It's not the fairytale that I was hoping for,

Those dreams they leave you crying out and wanting more.

So I'll savour the memories 'fore my innocence was lost. 

Rainy day remembering I will pay at any cost.

 

I've got not one else to blame, 

I keep calling out your name.

My life will never be the same.

 

Wake up, wake up, wake up.

Its a new kind, new kind of love.

I could never love somebody, unless that body is you.

 

We drive the distance but we've got so far to go,

I can always read you but there's so much I don't know.

So take my heart in your hands and show me which ways home.

I don't need the house on the hill I'll follow where you go.

 

I've got no one else to blame, 

I love the sound of your name.

My life will never be the same.

GOLD

I’ve sold my heart to the man with bright green eyes

‘Cos when the glass slipper fits you believe all their lies.

It’s hard to hold your tongue and keep your head high,

As the rust grew on my dusty bones you left me to die.

 

And I gave away the shoes we drew your name on,

Though the ink on my heart has not started to fade your love is long gone.

And I cry seven months worth of tears from my eyes,

I remember all the words you said your final goodbye.

 

Although your bed will be warm inside you’ll be cold,

I hope you think of me when your body is sold.

You’re not good enough,

To be worth gold.

 

So I’ve cut my hair and dyed it the darkest shade of green,

Anything to symbolise the end of you and me.

And I’ve thrown away the pictures of you and me,

Though I can’t erase my photographic memories.

PARADISE

I can't say I'm not scared as the sun starts to fall,

I don't want to close my eyes in case we don't get tomorrow.

So hold me closer than close and promise you won't leave my side,

I'll surrender to you my body, my time.

'Cause I'm yours and I know that you want me too,

Don't hesitate no need to think it through,

It's me and you.

As we fall in to the night whisper softly "I am yours and you are mine",

And as our hearts begin to ignite I know we have found paradise.

Take me up to the moon, let me swim with your stars,

Anywhere we go is heaven as long as I'm in your arms.

Take me higher and higher and promise you won't let me fall,

And to you I'll surrender my heart, my soul.

'Cause I'm yours and I hope that you want me too,

Don't lie my heart is black and blue,

The way you feel please tel me the truth,

Is it me and you?

CHANCES ARE

Chances are she'll go home with him,

It won't be love but it's how it begins.

You won't bat an eye or count your lucky stars,

He won't know how lucky he is.

Chances Are you don't know how I feel,

Chances Are I'm not bold enough to steal your heart,

I come apart, cupid's shooting in the dark,

You dance with him while I wonder what my chances are.

Do you recall the night we met?

Between Jack and Jim I woke up in your bed.

We keep hanging out but never went there again,

After all this time we're still just friends?

Chances Are you don't know how I feel,

Chances Are I'm not bold enough to steal your heart,

It's hard to hit your mark when cupid's shooting in the dark,

While I wonder what my chances are.

REAR VIEW MIRROR

You suit my rear view mirror hunny,

Now there's a picture I could frame sit you on my bedside table night and day.

Thinking you'll pick me up in that rusty truck,

We'll drink some beer and laugh it off​.

It don't work that way.

'Cause my mumma didn't raise no saint,

But my daddy wont allow a sinner.

I guess we'll find our the hard way.

 

You suit my rear view mirror hunny,

Now there's a picture I could frame sit you on my bedside table night and day.

And you can keep on dreaming on darling,

I'm a gun with just one shot, you're in my dust you're long forgotten.

 

Thought we had it all but I was wrong,

You were on the other side of town having "fun"

& that's not all.

I guess you thought it would be fine,

When you said her name instead of mine.

It's a long way to fall.

 

Won't make that mistake again.

 

So I hitched a ride out of town,

But not before I spread the word around.

STORY OF LOVE

I am yours, promise to love me so

'Cause without you I'd rather walk alone.

Give me love until my skin grows cold,

I will never be letting you go.

I see my future in your eyes,

Your past it don't matter to me.

I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love,

I could not lie to myself.

I'm exactly where I want to be.

We've come such a long, long way,

We've only scratched the surface of us.

So don't look down 'cause I'm never looking back,

Keep me shining brighter then the stars above.

This is our story of love.

Take my hand, of course, you already have my heart,

& when you leave I hate seeing you go.

Promise me you'll return don't keep me hanging on and on,

And like a fool in love I'll welcome you home.

I'M MOVING TO NASHVILLE

I'm moving to Nashville,

With a suitcase full of hopes and dreams.

I'm trading in my cow for a bag of magic beans.

For all that I've given, to get here,

With all the miles in between.

Please don't let me one way ticket just be a handful of seeds.

I'm moving to Nashville.

I'm moving to Nashville,

To those I've left behind I leave a trail of breadcrumbs so I'm easier to find.

When you hear a sad song, in a small bar, I hope you think of me.

Please don't let my music fade in to a memory,

'Cause I'm moving to Nashville.

Life is a journey, not a destination,

Why'd it take me so long to have this realisation?

When I moved to Nashville,

There was no gold at the end of rainbow,

Just people pulling strings at a grandiose puppet show.

It's about who you know, not what you know,

It's about where you've been and where you'll go.

When I moved to Nashville.

But I moved to Nashville,

& I'm going home with more than hopes and dreams,

I know just who I am and exactly where I need to be.

I'll never forget it or regret it,

'Cause now i'll always know.

Life's a journey, it's not where you go.

Life's a journey, make it own.

Your life's a journey, and now i know,

I moved to Nashville.

I
