TRUE BLUE ALBUM LYRICS

In The Night

It comes in the night, when they’re long gone, and tired of bringing you down.

Hold on take flight. You’re a strong one. They kept you close to the ground.

In the night, In the night, In the night, In the night.

When your ship comes, will you be waiting at the shoreline

Will they come knocking at your window, cause you’re hiding from their sight lines.

Oh, will you go? Will you go willingly, upon the ship ashore.

Do you know? Do you know? The responsibility, your future will withhold.

It comes in the niiiiiiiight, are you long gone, or rising up through the crowd?

In the night, In the night, In the night, In the night.

NO FUN

I could see from afar there’s that look in your eyes,

You could light up a room with your charm

We could make you a star let’s just go for a ride

They’ll be over the moon with these cards

                                                               

and it’s no fun, to become one, and you’ll win some, but mostly you lose

Get the place and the time and you’ll catch all the breaks

You’ve got nothing to lose you’re only young

Why you looking so blue? Why are you red in the face?

Show your colours too soon and you’l be done.

       

Tell me something’s wrong, Did you know all along, and I’ll never return X 2

and I’ll never return x 4

WISHFUL THINKING

Sooner or later I will come around, I’m done with wishful thinking

You’re a whole new person when the lights go down, a warning light is blinking

I don’t care if you’ve been drinking, you’re an anchor and we’re sinking

Let’s hold off and see what morning brings, cause this night is going to kill me

can we talk about some other things, I’ve heard all of your stories

all they do is show me

That you’re petrified, but so am I, I’m worried though

that if you don’t care, about your frame of mind, well then why should I

iiiiiiiiii , iii ii iii,  x 2  oooooooooo , ooo ooo oo,

You told me that I’ve never loved before, and I don’t think I’ll love after

You’re a drafted soldier going off to war, it was the worst kind of disaster,

I wouldn’t put it past her.

TRUE BLUE

Why are you such a true blue, oh why am I such a bad guy?

I cast my line so deep with you but it always comes up dry

oh it always comes up dry

Forty Days, 1000 Nights, I am lost alone I can’t get it right

Whenever I call out to you, you just keep me on the line

You just keep me on the line

and if you see me running, towards the great divide

don’t call for someone to save me, just have them answer

                                                      

If she was true blue, oh if she was true blue

Why are you so hard to love, oh I give and I give I can’t get enough

I send a lifeboat out to you but it always comes back fine

oh it always comes back fine

NORTH STAR

Look at the shining true north star, it’s never let you down

Oh how I wonder where you are, I’ve seen you in every town

I’m blinded by your impurities, I think I have dirt in my eyes

All bets on what you could have been, and there’s none on what you’ve done so far

so much for that shining star

you never wanted the attention, though you’ve come so far since you were young,

I never thought that it would hurt you

Why don’t you ever call my name, I never asked you for much

I wonder if I would do the same, but they dressed you up in fance clothes, and now you’ve got nowhere to go.

You never wanted the attention, though you’ve come so far since you were young

I never thought it would hurt you, you were worth nothing, just a mention,

til that claw came falling from the sky, we didn’t want to dissapoint you.

Look at the star, it’s come so far. Look at the star to find where you are.

As sure as the sun speaks to the moon, they will have your glass shattered

just to sort through your cuts

As sure as a gun speaks to a room. they will have that shot fired, you were holding your tounge.

Look at the shining true north star, just for one last time, before you say goodbye,

and you’ll be supernova.

BAD GUY

I’m a bad guy, in your eyes,

every full truth is a half lie

   

It’s a lie, that you tell yourself,

you heard it from me believed it from someone else

Don’t take me home, save me for show and tell, I’m just show and tell

Sure you trust him, he’s a nice guy, you could draw him with a straight line

I could leave you and go stateside, to tell half truths, the whole time

Yeah I’m fine, that’s what I tell myself, If you had a choice you’d send me straight to hell

I know you’re wrong but I still wish you well, yeah I wish you well.

Why won’t you stay with me ,why won’t you stay with me x 2 – Whyyyyyyyyy

I’m a bad guy, in your eyes,

every full truth is a half lie,

I’m a bad guy, a bad guy, a bad guy, in your eyes

Yeah I’m fine, that’s what I tell myself, If you had a choice you’d send me straight to hell

I know you’re wrong but I still wish you well, yeah I wish you well.

I’m a bad guy, in your eyes every full truth is a half lie bad guy, and your a bad guy in your eyes. Your eyes

BROTHER

I’ve been walking away from you brother cause I know your heart isn’t listening

(Yeeeaaaah) are you talking to me? (Yeaaaaah) are you looking out?

When you’re losing your mind you discover that you’re always shouting or whispering

(Yeaaaaaaah) acting confidently (Yeaaaaaah) are you full of doubts

Cause it’s coming down, it’s coming down.

(You can try and a you can try and a you can try and a you can try and)

You can try to save, yourself, but you’re becoming someone else

I’ve been cast in the shade from you brother

but your path there is really what’s sickening

(yeeaaaah) are you talking through me (Yeaaaaah) are you sitting out

(You can try and a you can try and a you can try and a you can try and)

You can try to save, yourself, but you’re becoming someone else

I asked you but you couldn’t tell me what it is you do so well.

You can try and save yourselves

UNDERWATER

Do you think that, you would save me, if you’d seen me underwater

Could you be certain, not a maybe, that you would pull me, out of my slumber

Ever wanting, demonstrating, pure devotion, that never falters

holding steadfast, never slaving, uninteresting, and full of wonder

             

I would cough and spit and curse you on the shore,

while you resuscitate my body, my mouth breathing in through yours

I’m getting closer I am drifting out of sleep

and you are wondering if I’ll know you and remember what runs deep,

But I know you’ll see me through, your a true blue,

and I’m certain of it now, I wouldn’t give that name to any other.

           

Songbird, you sing to me like a siren echoes in the deep

angel watch over me, give me guidance for eternity.

A MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING LYRICS

Looking at The Sun

Yeah, we were looking at the sun

But we weren’t getting any brighter

We were so good at having fun

You’re always borrowing a lighter

I was so sure you were the one

I don’t know if I can do better.

 

Now every person that I meet

Is showing signs that they’re just acting

and they audition on the street

and I’m the one to send them packing.

but I’ve been lonely for so long

that I am taking strangers home

 

All my views are so confused since you left me underwater

Better off in solitude where you left me, to the slaughter

Yeah you left me, underwater

 

and now I’m waiting for the light

to clear my vision after passing storms

I know I put up a good fight.

I offered all my coats to keep you warm

I know it’s so hard to receive

a gift you don’t believe in.

 

All my views are so confused since you left me underwater

Better off in solitude where you left me, to the slaughter

All my views are so confused since you left me underwater

Better off in solitude where you left me, to the slaughter

Yeah you left me, underwater

 

Only Just Be Friends

You called, from the tip top of a mountain

I crawled, halfway up to meet you there

I stopped, when I heard that you had found him

I tried, to pretend I didn’t care

 

I’ll never, I’ll never, I’ll never, forget how I feeeeel

 

and we’re never going to feel like this again

and we’re never going to kiss like we did then

and I’ll never see you smile like you did then

and we’re never going to be like this again

cause we’ll only just be friends.

 

You’ll talk, all about how much you love him

You’ll say, what you like about his hair

You ask, what I must be thinking of him

I lie ,it’s a gentlemans affair

 

I’ll never, I’ll never, I’ll never, forget how I feeeeel

 

and we’re never going to feel like this again

and we’re never going to kiss like we did then

and I’ll never see you smile like you did then

and we’re never going to be like this again

cause we’ll only just be friends.

 

Friends of Mine

Friends of mine, always looking back on summertime.

I’m aware, it was nice but we’re not living there.

Settle down, there’s no rush to leave this prairie town.

Patience dear, everyone gets down this time of year.

 

Everybody here wants to keep us safe.

Keep your secrets near,

Tell some just incase.

 

To say you want to go is only conversation,

They say it’s who you know in these situations,

You just want to show, you can stand up to the crowd.

 

All my friends who went away came back with looser ends,

The ones that stayed, they suit that town much better anyways,

So if you feel that it’s time for you to dissapear,

Never fear, because you know your always welcome here.

 

Everybody here wants to keep us safe,

We’re not perfect here,

Nor is anyplace,

 

So if you want to go, we’ll end this conversation.

I don’t need to know your situation.

I just want you to know, that I’ll miss you when your gone.

 

 

Break Me

You and I know things don’t happen for a reason

We both know that life just isn’t really fair

Rather be alone, then settle for the season

Always hungry, always willing to compare.

 

show me what you’ve got

everything I’m not

 

I’ve been meeting bodies in the middle of the night time.

Stranger things have happened when you try to play pretend

I should just do better but I know I’m doing just fine

tired of new beginnings I’m just working towards the end

 

show me what you’ve got

everything I’m not

 

break me break me- spill out all my love

take me take me- for everything I’m not

and if I fall then keep me down

please don’t help me up

break me break me- spill out all my love

 

tear my life apart

limb by limb and part by part

 

and I think I know what longing is

cause I’ve tried. cause i’ve tried

but I don’t know what belonging is

cause I’ve tried, yes, I’ve tried

 

Mistakes Often Haunted

I wish I could wrap you up tight

Keep you away from sight,

‘Cause with my brothers I fight

Over your space and time

 

I Wish I could put you away

Apart from night and day

Some lonely personal space

with nothing left to say

 

You say what you wanted

You break all your promises too

Mistakes often Haunted

Escape what is bothering you.

 

If You’ve Got The Moves

The dream is dead but we’re still going strong,

moving on through, against the waves

We’re tired now, but it won’t take us long

we’re conspiring,to cut through,

straight from us, to you,

 

A beam of light

strikes through your room

into your heart

where darkness tends to loom.

 

If you’ve got the moves then you’re gonna go far

You’ve got to move if you want to keep up and go far.

 

It’s gloomy now but soon it will be gone,

it lingers on at first but everything will clear up in due time

 

Don’t pick a fight with monsters in a cage

firmly banished to a place, all locked up,

that just in case it rears its ugly head again

 

the beast that we’re to weak to over come

the one that keeps us on the

run from things held very dear

gripping tighter every year

in sacred places that we hide

from them.

If you’ve got the moves then you’re gonna go far

You’ve got to move if you want to keep up and go far

 

Sure Thing

You can count on me

To surely let you down

Just forget all you’ve heard

It’s all good things I’m sure.

 

Every Little thought

I think of you, is pure

I can not decide

I’m constantly unsure.

 

There’s only one

Who Waits

when all scars torn

 

He waits

until

your scars are all healed.

 

I am not the one

I’ll leave you to decide

Don’t chase me down the trail

I’ll only try to hide

 

Lightning Bolt

Just because there’s nothing wrong

It doesn’t mean that it was right

what ever helps you sleep at night

I never really gave enough

and mostly I just wasn’t there,

I’m sorry that it isn’t fair

 

I struck you down, like a lightning bolt

I thought I’d keep control,

Of how I felt, but with time it showed.

A heart speaks when it knows.

 

I held you with a heavy hand,

that couldn’t hold your heavy heart

Delicate and torn apart.

I never said I love you back

It doesn’t mean I never cared

I guess you knew that I was scared

 

Just because we didn’t fight,

It doesn’t mean we got along

Where have all my feelings gone

 

I struck you down, like a lightning bolt

I thought I’d keep control,

Of how I felt, but with time it showed.

A heart speaks when it knows.

 

Looking At The Moon

Yeah we were looking at the moon

I thought it wasn’t supposed to shine

I think you left us way too soon

I think you came before your time

 

I don’t know why you’d leave this town

It’s home to all my dearest friends

I really thought you;d change your mind

I thought I knew you better

 

I never thought it’d hit me hard

I really thought that I was strong

I’m glad with how I played my cards

I never thought that I was wrong

But now I know that I will stay

and I won’t ever let you down

I know I’m going to be ok

I thought I knew me better

 

It’s not that your wasting my time

I just thought that’d it’d go better than it did

and for my piece of mind

I just thought that I would say it like it is

you’re not wasting my time

I just thought that’d it’d go better than it did

and for my piece of mind,

I just thought that it was better than it was

before, I love you more.
