All the Lines Lyrics
Close icon

Power’s in the picture, war is in the victor
Movement of the water, writing on the wall
Where you’re going I’m coming
Where we’re headed don’t know but
I release it all

All the lines that you’ve crossed
Your mind is jaded, your love is faded
Your future’s painted by the brushstrokes of your feet
Etchin’ lines in pavement, tryin’ to make a statement
All you’ve got is payment comin’ your way

Power’s in the limelight, victory’s on the sidelines
Stranded on the shoreline, anchors in the sand
Where you’re headed I have to follow
Truth that I’ve got to swallow
I’m tipping over the edge

All the lines that you’ve crossed
Your mind is jaded, your love is faded
Your future’s painted by the brushstrokes of your feet
Etchin’ lines in pavement, tryin’ to make a statement
All you’ve got is payment comin’ your way

How could you see with the blinders on?
How could you know I was already gone?
How could you see with the blinders on?
How could you know I was already gone?

All the lines that you’ve crossed
Your mind is jaded, your love is faded
Your future’s painted by the brushstrokes of your feet
Etchin’ lines in pavement, tryin’ to make a statement
All you’ve got is payment comin’ your way


Chasing All the Stars Lyrics
Close icon

There’s a letter, sealed and unopened, for you
All the words that I can’t seem to get out in person
I’m bad with that but you know this all too well
There’s a moment set aside for you
But I’ll probably neglect to reach out to you again
It’s harder now, and you’re all I’ve got

Whoa, caught in my own scheme
Whoa, stuck in a bad dream

Where I keep calling you but there’s no answer
Just a multitude of questions left to chance
And I don’t know why you keep saying
Things will be alright
I know these storms will come
Let it rain, let it pour on me
You’re my umbrella in a raging sea
I won’t give in to the insanity
Chasing all the stars

There’s a silence staring me down
If I could see you I bet I’d break in half
But there’s a disconnect
I can see it’s tearing us apart

And there’s a promise I made, that I can’t keep
All my regret testifies that I am far from flawless
Always reckless, can I borrow your forgiveness
I say I need some space, but all we’ve got are

Oh, oceans between us
Whoa, separating

And I keep calling you but there’s no answer
Just a multitude of questions left to chance
And I don’t know why you keep saying
Things will be alright
I know these storms will come
Let it rain, let it pour on me
You’re my umbrella in a raging sea
I won’t give in to the insanity
Chasing all the stars


We Were Young Lyrics
Close icon

Where did you come from?
Crash back into my world, it’s been so long
We’re here again in the moonlight
That night I’ll never forget the way you moved
The way you left the room so sad
Like nothing ever turned out like you thought it would

Oh, we were young
And I’m still in love, I’m still a fool for you
Oh I caught your eye
Tell me you didn’t try to compare me
To the girl in your mind

You walk toward me
My legs are frozen to the ground
I couldn’t make a sound if I wanted to
But you, fearless as ever
Always one to please the crowd
You flash a smile at me so sad
Like nothing ever turned out like you thought it should

Oh, we were young
And I’m still in love, I’m still a fool for you
Oh I caught your eye
Tell me you didn’t try to compare me
To the girl in your mind

What’s the difference?
You never called, you never wrote
I left it alone but something’s different
Something’s exactly the same
The way your lips move when you say my name, so sad
Like nothing was as perfect as you wanted it to be

We were free and I’m still waiting to see
If you’ll come back around tonight
I caught your eye
Tell me you didn’t try to compare me
To the girl in your mind
The girl you’ll never find
The one you’ll never find
Never as perfect as you wanted it to be


Summer Girl Lyrics
Close icon

I’ll be your summer girl by night
I love to watch the way the moonlight
Dances in your eyes
And I feel pretty when you stare
Across the room at me

I hear music in my head
But I swear it’s not my own
It must belong to you instead
Think I see you when I dream
Waiting there for me

Where, how, when?
Questions circle in my head
When will I be home again?
When will winter end?

Thought I lost you at the fork
Where the road became the forest
And the night grew dark
I still see you in my dreams
Fighting your way back to me

Where, how, when?
Questions circle in my head
When will I be home again?
When will winter end?

Where, how, when?
Questions circle in my head
When will I be home again?
When will winter end?


There's a Ghost Lyrics
Close icon

There’s a ghost, she’s wearin’ my face
At parties bein’ introduced with my name
Just a skeleton of bones, wearin’ nothin’ but clothes
And she is paralyzing

The human soul is a treacherous place
Beneath the masks we wear
A dark and twisted labyrinth lay
Secrets locked in closets closed
Never surface while we keep composed
Come out of hiding

Oh, oh

There’s a sound, it’s haunting my dreams
Like children laughing in the distance
And I don’t know what it means
Am I afraid to be alone?
That nobody will ever know this death I’m dying?

Oh, oh

There’s a heartbeat under my floorboards
Charging me guilty and I don’t know what for
There’s a black bird over my door
Singin’ nevermore, nevermore, nevermore, nevermore


I Never Wanted Lyrics
Close icon

I never wanted you to be anyone but yourself
Never wanted you to sit untouched on the shelf
Never wanted you to lose your heart when you fell

Oh my love, your heart’s a soft-skinned treasure
Oh my love, the ocean’s depths can’t measure
My love for you


Hymn Lyrics
Close icon

Somewhere, high up in the air there
I had long forgotten I belong to you
Some unconscious stream of twisted logic
Caught me in its whirlwind, left me black and blue

I was senseless, battered and defenseless
Rain became relentless, leaving barren skies
I was broken, all I left unspoken
Left me torn wide open, barely still alive

Found your letter, sealed away in storage
Under my pretenses, buried out of view
I recalled it, hidden in a notebook
Tattered, ruffled pages, old but good as new

I was listless, how could I have missed this?
If you are the groundswell, I’m tossed in your tide
I was certain if I’d seen it comin’
I’d have started runnin’ back at the starting line

Well I faltered, left you at the altar
Offering my apologies and my gratitude
Now there’s a sinking feeling in my chest
You’re gonna love me less when I return to you

But you were never one to keep a record
One to hold against me all I failed to prove
I’ve been tethered, floating a feather
Anxious in my roaming, stranded on the move
