I Need This

What do I chase
Locked in this place
Burning the days that I do
Walking around
Pacing this ground
Calling your name after you

Am I calling you just because I need this
I need this to never end like all of the others
I need this
I need this

Why do I stay
Nothing you say
Returns me the days of my youth
I'm lost or I'm found
Safe here and sound
Or falling in flames if I move

Am I calling you just because
I need this
I need this to never end like all of the others
I need this
I need this love
I need this love

Show me the light
Say if I'll ever stand in a world that feels so far away
Show me tonight
It's now or never
I need this love

Am I calling you just because
I need this
I need this to never end like all of the others
I need this
I need this to never end like all of the others
I need this
I need this to never end like all of the others
I need this
I need this love

The Fall of Rome

Smoke it if you got some
Get in while the getting is good
Show your claws, you need ‘em ‘cause
You feel misunderstood
So your heart is beating, it’s bleeding that’s good
No one cares, why should they
You don’t for theirs

Upset with the outcome
Nothing works whatever you give
Show them wrong, keep holding on,
And scream into the wind
It’s only your defeat that you meet in the end
No one cares, no one cares

Every song I’ve learned to sing’s already old
Time turned all the reasons into dust

What’s forever in the morning is
Not together in the gloam
Tell me I’m not living in the fall of Rome

Shake it while you got one
Use it ‘cause you’re losing it fast
On and on it’s going, gone,
And fades into the past
No one knows your history, your meaningless lasts
No one cares, no one cares

Every song I’ve learned to sing’s already old
Time turned all the reasons into dust

What’s forever in the morning is
Not together in the gloam
Tell me I’m not living in the fall of Rome

Did I fall asleep?
How’d the days and the weeks slip away?
So the cowards won
They’ll ask in the flood
Oh, won’t you please come pinch me awake!

Tell me I’m not living in
Tell me I’m not living in
Tell me I’m not living in

What's forever in the morning's not together when you want
Tell me I’m not living in the what

Tell me I’m not living in the fall of Rome

Time of War

Give me one reason to stay here
Why not just say it
I've been thinking no one can save us no more
Think I might even just lay here
Hide out and wait for someone braver
Cause I can't face anymore

Live it up
Wanna make this life worth living
But see the world crumbling down and giving up

Cause we are living in a time of war
Someone police the ones in charge
Our leaders are the criminals at large
We're living in
We're living in

I'm burning out hearing this hate
Tired of all this blaming others
Certain it's only making me numb
I'm giving too little too late
Fighting all the same corruption
Certain destruction is saving me from

Live it up
Wanna make this life worth living
But see the world crumbling down and giving up

Cause we are living in a time of war
Someone police the ones in charge
Our leaders are the criminals at large
We're living in
We're living in

Cause we are living in a time of war
No one believes a word of ours
We're angry and we're shaking at the bars
We're living in
We're living in

Can't believe that we thought it would last forever
I can see where it's starting to crack
We're falling, falling, falling
Divided by fear and on the attack
Now more than ever, ever, ever before

Cause we are living in a time of war
Someone police the ones in charge
Our leaders are the criminals at large
We're living in
We're living in

Cause we are living in a time of war
No one believes a word of ours
We're angry and we're shaking at the bars
We're living in
We're living in

I'm a Pawn

Headstrong
I swallowed everything
I played your memory down
Dead wrong
Now I'd give anything
I had to keep you around

One of these days I should resist you for letting me go
Now that I'm here, I'm starting to miss you but already know

I'm a pawn you play when you choose
Just another name you can use
Just another wave that doesn't carry us away,
But didn't I say as long as you call you'll catch me?

Next one
Heart broke whenever
I run back to be with you now
Head spun
I can't tell whether
You're out drunk or sleeping around

One of these days I should resist you for letting me go
Now that I'm here I'm starting to miss you but already know

I'm a pawn you play when you choose
Just another name you can use
Just another wave that doesn't carry us away,
But didn't I say as long as you call you'll catch me?

Now that I'm here, now that I've kissed you
I already miss you as you're letting go
Your fingers started slipping, I already know

I'm a pawn you play when you choose
Just another name you can use
Just another wave that doesn't carry us away,
But didn't I say as long as you call you'll catch me?

Take Me

Stay as long as late as you like
If you want to leave then you don't have to stay the night
Say you wanna go if you have to, don't fight it
If there's no more to see then you're right

Even if that's all that's even better
Leave when you have to but please remember
Whether we're foam or forever, whatever
I never knew love could feel like this
But you take me there
You take me there

Nothing wrong with changing your mind
If you want to leave then you must have your reasons why
Say you wanna go, you don't have to deny it
It's there for all to see in your eyes

Even if that's all that's even better
Leave when you have to but please remember
Whether we're foam or forever, whatever
I never knew love could feel like this
But you take me there
You take me there

I can't believe that it's taken
Taken as long as it's taken to know
I can't believe nothing's left
You can hate me as long as you know

Even if that's all then...

Kick it!

Even if that's all that's even better
Leave when you have to but please remember
Whether we're foam or forever, whatever
I never knew love could feel like this
But you take me

Even if that's all that's even better
Leave when you have to but please remember
Whether we're foam or forever, whatever
I never knew love could feel like this
But you take me there

You take me there

Heaven Help Me

Maybe you're the last of the living
I don't mind the peace if you don't
Maybe there's a past you have hidden
I won't try to peek if you won't

I cannot tell what your past means but
I mean this much
I mean this

I wanna be your fire
I wanna be your flame
I wanna be the hero you can come to in need and be well
I wanna be ignited
But what am I saying?
Everybody's telling me to run
But I think I'm too weak
Heaven help me now

If you've been alone
If you've been around
If men you loved ended up kicking your heart around
Baby, it's no reason to go
Pick the time and place and I can face it
Cause I'm ready for war

I cannot tell you to love me but
I mean this much
I mean this

I wanna be your fire
I wanna be your flame
I wanna be the hero you can come to in need and be well
I wanna be ignited
But what am I saying?
Everybody's telling me to run
But I think I'm too weak
Heaven help me now

Heaven help me now

Gimme another light
Gimme another light
Gimme another light
Gimme another light

I wanna be your fire
I wanna be your flame
I wanna be your hero

Save Yourself

 
 

Did I leave
Did I go
Cause someone said that
I should leave you long ago
Did I think
Did I know
Or understand that
I would need you down the road

I'm suffering in my bed here alone
Have any others been in your own

You know it's safe if you save yourself for me
You always
You always
You know it's safe if you save yourself for me
You always
You always

Am I weak
Am I wrong
To wanna save that
Remember feeling I belong
Can I speak
Can I call
I shouldn't sat that
I would rather see you rigt or wrong

I'm suffering in my bed here alone
Have any others been in your own

You know it's safe if you save yourself for me
You always
You always

You know it's safe if you save yourself for me
You always
You always

Leave
I'll leave when you know
You were the best heartbreak

I'd thank you for more
Please, please
I'm deep in your throes
Give you the rest after it's taken its toll

You know it's safe if you save yourself for me
You always
You always
You know it's safe if you save yourself for me
You always
You always

You know it's safe if you save yourself for me
You always
You always
You know it's safe if you save yourself for me
You always
You always will

Man Enough

Why did I leave you there alone
How could the talk I prepared have gone
Over as bad as I'm afraid it was
Why did I leap if there's no rope
Why did I jump if I'm scared of going
Over the edge above the great unknown

Why am I leaving now when action's this close
Right when I see the moment passing it goes

Just don't think I'm man enough, but wait
Maybe the next time I'll find a way
Maybe the next time I'll find a way, yeah

Just don't think I'm man enough, but wait
Maybe the next time I'll find a way
Maybe the next time

Find how to speak when I'm scared to blow it
Finally ask whaat I'm scared of knowing
Find all the answers I want can't save me from the fall

Why am I leaving now when action's this close
Right when I see the moment passing it goes

Just don't think I'm man enough, but wait
Maybe the next time I'll find a way
Maybe the next time I'll find a way, yeah

Just don't think I'm man enough, but wait
Maybe the next time I'll find a way

Maybe the next time
Maybe the next time
Maybe the next time
Maybe the next time
Maybe the next time

Be Free

Where do I belong?
Tell me why I'm here and what's taking this long
When can I move on?
I'm ready for confirmation to come

It's the first thought I compete with every morning
Before I'm even on my feet I pray and I repeat

I don't wanna be this
Don't wanna be that
Don't wanna give up
I wanna give back
I wanna be free by whatever means
Whatever you want from me I wanna be

Where did I go wrong?
Give me back the years that are wasted and gone
Say you won't be long
I've been waiting here for salvation to come

It's the first thought I compete with every morning
Before I'm even on my feet I pray and I repeat

I don't wanna be this
Don't wanna be that
Don't wanna give up
I wanna give back
I wanna be free by whatever means
Whatever you want from me I wanna be, be, be

I wanna be clear
Starting right here
I'm getting this act together
Whatever you wish
Top of my list
I'll make you this pact forever
I wanna be set free by whatever is holding me back
Show the way, show the way, show the way

Yeah

I don't wanna be this
Don't wanna be that
Don't wanna give up
I wanna give back
I wanna be free by whatever means
Whatever you want from me I wanna be

I don't wanna be this
Don't wanna be that
Don't wanna give up
I wanna give back
I wanna be free by whatever means
Whatever you want from me I wanna be, be, be

I wanna be

I wanna be free by whatever means

Save Me, Emily

Oh, no
Strong out the gate
Started great
Now you're leaving me low

Oh, no
Thought I could wait
Now it's late
And I'm leaving alone

I can't understand why I keep stalling
Baby, we both know you mean it
Don't want to be here, but I keep falling
Baby, we both know I need you to

Save me, Emily
No time for medical
Can't you see that I'm critical?
Save me, Emily

Yeah

Hey now
Why don't you treat me the same now
Now like you'd treat me before?

Tell me if the flame's out
Throw out my brain it's just a waste
I can't keep anymore

I can't understand why I keep stalling
Baby, we both know you mean it
Don't want to be here, but I keep falling
Baby, we both know I need you to

Save me, Emily
No time for medical
Can't you see that I'm critical
Save me, Emily

Hold on forever
Wake me whenever
Take these scars I'm healing for you
Hold on forever
Wake me whenever
Make me forever yours

Save me, Emily
No time for medical
Can't you see that I'm critical
Save me, Emily
No time for medical
Can't you see that I'm there
Save me, Emily

Yeah
