What Are You Trying To Say (2016)
01 - Predictable

She didn’t know what she’d get if the walls changed — Even though she had her dreams she tried to play it safe — She always wanted her face in the movies — But the mirror shows a sad girl serving coffee — So nothing’s different and nothing is right — Still in the same town drowning in the same crowd — Her heart is crying but her eyes keep the sight out — She’s slowly losing herself

Right now the future is predictable — She can tell by her past — Right now her life is so invisible — But now a change, she feels a change, there’s a  — Right now the future is predictable  — Like everything and nothing she’d always planned  — Somehow she feels so invisible

She’s quit her job and now she’s got some auditions  — This time it’s different she’s driving her ambitions  — She’s so excited there’s colour in her face — But now the car’s stopped, while she hopes and waits  — Cause habits catch her that hide in the night  — Stuck in the same crowd, dying in a new town  — Her heart is crying but her eyes keep the light out  — She’s slowly losing herself

Right now the future is predictable — She can tell by her past — Right now her life is still invisible — But now a change, she feels a change, there’s a  — Right now the future is predictable  — Like everything and nothing she’d always planned  — And now she’s tired of being invisible so predictable

She’s tired of sleeping in tired of where she hasn’t been — So tired of giving in to everyone and everything — But most of all she’s tired of being afraid and a thing called fear that never ends — It never ends so

Right now the future’s unpredictable — She knows it won’t be her past — Cause right now she knows its unpredictable  — The steps that make up the path — Its unpredictable — She made it unpredictable
words and music by: David Blair, Julian Feifel

02 - Reconcile

You reconcile my Reconcile my love Reconcile my…

Kicked my door in, tore me through a whirlwind — Shot me down and spun me in a tailspin — Seduced my secrets — Didn’t really understand what was happening — Made me lose control of all of my senses — Now I’m sitting here stripped of my protections — Could this be my fall?

No, no, you seem to know me — Pull apart all the machinery in me — Cut me up and perform life threat’ning surgery — I don’t understand how this can be happening — I’ve been buried for a thousand years now — Dead and gone for a thousand years underground

You reconcile my Reconcile my love Reconcile my (x3)

I gave in to the moment — Woke up deep into a new world of roses — Caught amnesia for my past in the process — Wasn’t looking to the future to find this

You reconcile my love — You heal my heart inside — You reconcile my love, reconcile my...

Words and Music by: David Blair

03 - Heartbeat

I’m addicted to your heartbeat — It helps me fall asleep — Pleasant dreams — Place my ear upon your chest — Your drum is happiness — Happiness

I will sleep forever— Just stay here forever— And I will dream us both awake — Both awake

We don’t have to wake up — Nothing has to break this up — Break this up— Dreams were meant to come true — And this is mine so don’t you move — Don’t you move

I will sleep forever— Just stay here forever — And I will dream us both awake — Both awake — Both awake yes I will dream us both awake

Words and Music: David Blair

04 - Magic

I don’t need time any more — Cause I have you — Everything that mattered has disappeared — Cause I’m with you, I’m with you — It’s cold outside but I wouldn’t know — All I feel is you, it’s you — It’s magic, it’s you — It’s magic, it’s you

I don’t wanna know the secret — I don’t wanna understand — I just wanna be around it — I just wanna be around you — Behind you beside you with you (x2)

It’s magic, it’s you — It’s magic, it’s you

We don’t see it — And its nothing we can touch — But its in the air and its all around — And I’d die in heaven if I could drown — In this magic, this magic

It’s magic, it’s you — It’s magic, it’s you

Words and Music: David Blair, Lena Buhl

05 - Say No

I’d written off love, long ago — But I played the part for the show — Cause people never find love true — Even though I told myself they do  — And it seems that you might like me now — But I know deep down I’ve got nothing to offer — And this you’re gonna soon find out — That I’ll let you down over and over

Say no — Say no to me, listen closely — Say no — Just save yourself, save us from me — Cause I can’t say that word — I’ll only make it hurt

Wish I had something to give — Wish I had love to touch you with — Wish I could believe my lies — Then I could sleep tonight — So if you continue to pursue — No matter how hard I try, I can’t tell you the truth — I don’t really understand why — I sabotage myself and every girl that tries

Say no — Say no to me, make it easy — Say no — Just save yourself, save us from me — Cause I won’t say that word — I’m only gonna make it hurt

I know for most its probably pretty easy — But its seems I like to make my life hard — So save yourself this mistake and hit the brakes — And let me go and

Say no — Say no to me, listen closely — To you heart — You know you’re having doubts — I’m giving you an out — Cause I can’t say that word — I’ll only make this hurt

words and music: David Blair

06 - Replay

Its crazy how I’m lying in bed — Replaying that awkward moment I wanted to forget — And all the things I wish I’d said — I would’ve had em with this — Or stumped em with that — What would’ve happened if I’d struck back — What would they say if I cornered them and made them pay? — I guess it doesn’t matter — But its pissing me off losing myself to another awkward moment replay — Losing myself — Replay

What the hell is wrong with me — I’m a victim of my memory — Cause I’m stuck wanting the past to change — Kidnapped, my brain’s in locks and chains — Sweet revenge sounds so good in my brain — Yea sweet revenge looks so good in my brain
(Whispers) Oh aah ah I gotcha — Oh ah ah I gotcha there — Oh ah ah I gotcha — Oh ah ah I gotcha back

Oh what am I gonna do — Now that I am lying wide awake — I’m trying hard to let it go — And turn the page — And maybe get to dream of a place where I can sleep — And let it be  — The funny thing is they probably don’t remember what I said — So what’s with all this weight I carry in my head — I’ve already lost half the night — So can I give up the fight?

Can I lose the replay, please? — Can I? — I Just need to forget.

So here I am still lying in bed — Replaying that awkward moment I wanted to forget — And all the things I wish I’d said — Would I have had em with this — Or stumped em with that  — Would I have had em if I’d struck back — Would I have cornered them and made them pay — It’s hard to say — And now it doesn’t matter — No it doesn’t really matter — Does it…

Oh what am I gonna do — Now that I am lying wide awake — I’m trying hard to let it go — And turn the page — And maybe get to dream of a place where I can sleep — And let it be  — The funny thing is they probably don’t remember what I said — So what’s with all this weight I carry in my head — I’ve already lost half the night — So can I give up the fight?

Can I lose the replay, please? — Can I? — I Just need to forget — Replay
Words and Music: David Blair

07 - What Am I Worried About

I did it again — I missed the green lights racing to the red — Pushed the pedal down, speeding so fast — I couldn’t get out — Avoiding yes or no — I threw away all control

What am I — What am I worried about, now? — What am I — What am I worried about this time? — The rain will still fall — The birds will still have their call — What am I — What am I worried about, now?

I’ve got so much to give — But I squeeze so hard, my heart’s crushed in — Nothing comes out under the pressure — And only tears begin —The path to the light — Is unveiled through the night — I notice the stars and suddenly the sun appears

What am I — What am I worried about, now? — What am I — What am I worried about this time? — The trees will still grow — Seasons will come and go — What am I — What am I worried about, now?

Everything is alright — But I’m still in this fight — Gotta close my eyes — And remember the heart beats in my life

What am I — What am I worried about?

What am I — What am I worried about, now? — What am I — What am I worried about this time? The earth will still spin — And another tomorrow begins — What am I — What am I worried about, this time.

Nothing, nothing — Worried about — Nothing, nothing’s weighing me down — What am I worried about… now

words and music: David Blair

08 - Work It Out

All this time I’ve been standing still — Not really feeling like I could move — Not really feeling anything — Sunrise turned into sunset but I —  I Didn’t notice cause I wasn’t focused — Upon anything — Cause nothing could move me — But looking at you on this random Wednesday afternoon — I see the way out — I see a way in — I can finally see you — I can finally feel you — When I look in your eyes — I can finally see you

Whatever our problems — From now ’till the end — Whatever the winds bring — We’ll always sing

We’ll work it out.

I’m finding my way through the city streets to get to you — I’m moving the mountains cause they’re in the way of you, now

We’ll work it out

words and music: David Blair

09 - Awake

I’d been dead inside for months — Frozen in my fears that you might not be the one — To melt me — Moments fell threw my hands — Like they were made of concrete — Like a statue — So you let go — And I let you go too — I didn’t fight, cause I didn’t know — What I was losing

Now my memories keep me awake — Cause I keep dreaming bout — All the love that you gave — And how I couldn’t take it — And how I let it blow away — And what a lover and friend that I could be today  — You are the first one my heart could trust — Falling in love months and days late — Was just not in time for us

While I argued with myself — I couldn’t hear you, see or feel you — I couldn’t drink you in — If I had just looked in your eyes — I would’ve been so mesmerized — I would’ve saved myself from all this mess — And fallen in love in time

But here I am still dreaming awake — Thinking ‘bout the love that I could have gave — And how we would’ve made it — And how we’d never fade away — And how you’d love me  — And how you’d always hear me say — I love you

words and music: David Blair

10 - Just A Look

You really are that smart — It really is that smile — That spills your charm and lasts for miles — That explosive laugh — It just melts the walls — I’m soaking in you — And it’s tripping me and making me fall

I’m stealing money from the bank and I’m keeping it — I’m feeling richer than a Rockefeller relative — I wanna tell you so that you can keep on glowing — Just be yourself and please don’t stop ­’cause you own it

Just a look — Just a look is all it takes — Just a look — Just a look and its love

Innocent naive like you don’t even know — And when you think out loud you grab me by the heart and hold — Inquisitive while you play with your hair — Haven’t lost that little girl in you when you’ve got stories to share

I have a dream and you always seem to be in it — Your dress is flowing, kisses blowing to me through the wind — The sun gets jealous when you look at me the way you do — Cause no day in July could possibly be as bright as you

Just a look — Just a look is all it takes — Just a look — Just a look and its love
If I could catch a shining shooting star — Then I’d be always where you are (x2)
(Background)When I’m here with you — Hope is real (x2)

When I’m with you it’s like I’m in a Disney dream — You keep me wishing on a star

Just a look — Just a look is all it takes — Just a look — Just a look and its love
You’re beautiful just like a shooting star — And when you get that look — You constantly fill my heart ­ — You’re making me love just who you are

words and music: David Blair

11 - Here All Along

I was lost — Pushed you away — Ran to the edge — Fought so hard to prove you were wrong — But you were there all along — And when I lied — To myself — Lost all sight of the light — You were patiently standing — Always by my side

I made my mistakes — my poor heart, I never forgave — Was locked in a past that stole all I have

Got so tired — Of being alone — Wanted so bad to find my way home — And finally I, see it was here, all along

I made my mistakes — my poor heart, I never forgave — I was locked in a past that stole all I have

Now I’m so thankful — I can see — All the joy and smiles for me — I’m singing this song — For the love that’s been here all along — I’m singing this song — In the love that’s been here all along

Stronger Higher Faster (2014)
01 - This Is The Soundtrack

You’re the stolen song I stumbled upon — Two months and three days ago — Might not seem like long — It’s funny what you find — When you’re not even looking — It was right between the lines — And something came over me — Over you, over us — There’s nothing to describe — The way that I felt that night — The rush to my head and — The waves full of color — Like a sunrise in summer — Made of violets and reds — I lost all consciousness of what I said

This is the soundtrack — To our conversations — You’re the laughter in my smile — And I just wrote you an empty love song — If I don’t have you and can’t get you back — Can’t get you back

Fast forward to right now — I somehow lost your hand — In a crowd full of nobodies — Not exactly how I planned — Doesn’t matter how it starts — It’s only how it ends — But everything in between — Make me know that there’s still a chance

This is the soundtrack to our conversations — You’re the laughter in my smile — And I just wrote you an empty love song — If I don’t have you and can’t get you back — Can’t get you back

Can’t get you back, oh — I’ll sing along with our song — Cause I feel you still you near — Hoping this can bring you home — Bring you home, bring you home

I just wrote you an empty love song if I don’t have you…

This is the soundtrack — To our conversations — You’re the laughter in my smile — And I just wrote you an empty love song — If I don’t have you and can’t get you back — Can’t get you back

It’s funny what you find — When you’re not even looking — It was right between the lines

words and music: David Blair

02 - I Wanna Give You Something

Oooh oh yeah - Alright (x3)

I wanna get in some trouble right now — I gonna make some mistakes and get em out — I’m throwing all my stop signs to the wind — Revealing how I feel cause that's how we'll win — Even if I lose for a moment for a spell — No need to worry cause its only uphill — I’m at the edge of the cliff — I’m gonna float and free fall and get lifted

Ooh oh oh yeah oh oh yeah alright — I wanna give you something — I wanna give you lovin (x2)

I wanna give you something made from me — A sky that's blue and it tastes like ice cream — Its warm and cozy like a reggae song — And you can dance and feel the groove of it all night long — And its something real, something true, filled with faith — To make a smile cross your face and keep it always in place — Like the pyramids in Egypt its built to last — It’ll answer those questions you've always asked!

Chorus

I got love for you, alright — I got love for you, alright — Got so much love for you, alright — I got love

03 - Alone Together

We’re all alone for different reasons — Maybe that’s our cross to bear — If its any consolation — We’re alone together (x2) — We forget sometimes what we mean to each other — And we don’t see sometimes how we see one another —If anything should happen to me I want you to know — I know how you feel — Please know I know how much you feel

I feel the rain when it falls on you — I hold the cold in your bones too — I know how much you hurt in the middle — I know how much you hide — Cause I’m right there, with you

If there’s any consolation — There’s a crowd under the weather — If it’s any consolation — It’s a road we share — If it’s any consolation — There’s a line and we’re all in it — If it’s any consolation — I’m right there with you

Alone together — Alone together

I, I know we’ll find our way

04 - Perfect Set Of Troubles

I, I just want the chance — Chance to give you love — Cause I don’t think that we are far apart — I, I just want to say — Say that its not because — Not because of what you’d think — Not because you got that perfect smile — Not because you got that perfect skin and eyes and nose and hair — And you smell like fresh air

I just want the chance to fix you — Cause I think that you’ve got the right set — The right set of troubles for me — I just want the chance — Chance to try to fix you — With my love all around you — Around you, around you

Its funny how you crush me — And I don’t think there’s anyone for me beyond you — And we haven’t even kissed — Its funny how you seem to kill me — And I let you in my heart and no-one else but you

I just want the chance to try to fix you — Cause I just think that you’ve got the perfect set of troubles for me — I just wanna give you love

05 - I Hate Liking You

Most unexpected — Most unplanned for — Random meeting in the world on vacation — You came up to me — And as we chatted — Felt myself lose control — And I thought to myself — This is different — What’s this feeling — I’m not sure what it is — So I kissed you — And you kissed me back — That’s when my heart got attacked

I hate liking you — I hate liking you — I hate liking you oh so much (x2) — Cause my hearts falling fast — And I'm not sure if you’ll catch it — Catch it, catch it, and I don’t feel very comfortable with that

So we laughed and we kissed some more — ’Till I walked you to the door — Then the next day though a little awkward — But everything seemed ok come on now — We made plans to — Meet again another day and just couldn't wait — Tried to play it cool — Not be a fool — And stay away from my phone — But I broke down and — Sent you a love note — Hoping to hear back — And you can guess why I'm singing this song

CHORUS

I get texts annoyed its not you — I get phone calls — So irritating that their not you — I’m waiting here just counting the minutes to the hours ’till you call — It’s so ironic cause

I waited so long for this feeling — My walls are so high its so surprising — And now that its here — I’m not sure I like feeling it this way.

I hate liking you — I hate wanting you — I hate waiting here like a fool — I hate wanting you — I hate needing you — I hate crushing on you so much — Cause my heart is falling — And my heart is falling so fast — Cause my heart’s falling fast —And I'm not sure if you'll catch it —Catch it — Catch it

06 - Let The Stars Fall

I don't wanna be the guy that breaks up a good thing — But maybe breaking up for you is the best thing — I know you can feel this crazy energy between us — Its gravity unstoppable even when he is right there — There’s no way that we could've planned this — But maybe we should go with it — It doesn't always happen this strong — This is special — This is once in a lifetime — We could be just friends but more would be so much cooler

There’s a reason why every time we meet we have a connection — Its so obvious why do we try to deny it — We don't have to chase it — It’s right there — People spend their lives trying to fill their hearts with cotton candy conversation — There’s nothing that we have to do — Just connect the dots and let the stars fall — Let the stars fall where they may

I don't wanna be the girl that breaks up a good thing — But maybe breaking up for you is the best thing — Every time I hear your voice I think about what I'm missing — Could it be the stars aligned telling us we belong together — There’s no way that we could've planned this — But maybe we should go with it — It doesn't always happen this strong — This is special — This is once in a lifetime — We could be just friends but more would be so much cooler

CHORUS

And maybe — You and I can touch the sky or go beyond — We might never know so — Let’s not regret what we didn't do — There’s no way to know until we try — Cause let's not lie

CHORUS

I know I know I know you feel it baby (repeat)

 

07 - You Make Me Ok

You always find a way to make things cool — It seems I was born awkward like an unused garage tool — And you make me ok, you make me ok (x2) — You’re like the clutch between me and the world — They spin at different speeds and you somehow you make it work — And you make me ok, you make me ok (x2)

My friends used to laugh at my expense — And my feelings always seemed to pay — But somehow when you poke at me, you find another way — To make a half smile escape from my face — Wow, wow, wow (x2)

Like a Swiss watch — You’re timing is perfect — You must be telepathic cause you know when I’m thinking of you — And you work it, and you work it — And you work it

My friends used to laugh at my expense — And my feelings always seemed to pay — But somehow when you poke at me, you find another way — To make a half smile escape from my face — I’m serious but I can’t stay tense with you smiling at me in this room — There’s nothing that I can do but let this flower that we’ve planted bloom

And you make me ok, you make me ok — You make me ok, you make me ok — You always find a way to make things cool

Wow, wow, wow (repeat)

You make me ok

08 - I Want To Fall

I’m a redwood standing so tall — I’ve been strong by myself for so long — Withstood the heavy rains through the spring and fall — Scars in shapes of hearts carved by others — Branches cut to make room for lovers — It’s been a hundred years and more — But I’m still standing

I want to fall (x2) — In luh luh love (x2)

I’m the moon hanging with the stars — Wish one would collide into me like two cars — Need a comet to take me out and shake my feet — Cause I’m still standing — I can see so clearly — For once all I want is to be blind — All I want is to go crazy — I just wanna lose my mind

I want to fall (x2) — In luh luh love (x2)

Break down the walls — And fall in love

I just wanna free fall — I don’t wanna think clearly — I just wanna lose track of time

I want to fall — In luh luh love — In luh luh love — I want to fall — Break down the walls and fall in love

09 - Stay In Touch

You look at me with that inquisitive face — Don’t know the answer but I love the question — Got my attention 100% and — Through my ears you’re tuggin’ at my heart — I see a boy helping a girl — He doesn’t know but he just helped the world — There’s something simple bout the word hello — Mixed with a smile it makes it all worthwhile — Now I feel you as a wonderful thing — Cozy like a comforter and fresh like spring — And even when you rain you may think you’re a downer — But that’s part of your song and I love it when its out there

Sing it louder for me — And stay in touch

Sometimes the things that suck are the things that bring luck — Like the stories told — The ones that never get old — Are the battles we’ve won — The strangers we’ve loved — The days past the sun — Tragedies overcome — Love is a verb that spells abundance — A doing word that gives us the substance — To get past the wrongs — Lose all regrets — Forgive ourselves of our spiritual debts  — And just live…

So stay in touch — With your heart

All we feel is who we love, when we touch — Reaching out just brings it in — As we start to begin.. to let love in

I don’t often understand my world — And so I search for someone else’s words — You’re pouring answers deep inside my brain — It fills me up so I can sing again — We all have the same goal in mind — Save, protect, heal and love when we can — And every day’s a challenge cause something falls apart — So every day’s a chance to put together someone’s heart — Sometimes its scary when you get what you want — Frustrating when its not what you need — But there’s always someone there — Someone who can help you but only if you want it — So stay in touch

All we feel is who we love, when we touch — Reaching out just brings it in — As we start to begin, oh — Love is a verb that spells abundance — A doing word that gives us the substance — Its about connection — So ya connect the dots and ya feel the thoughts of your friends now — Are the keys to my understanding of this world

And I’m learning to be a friend - And I - Take it from a friend - And I listen to your heart, Listen to what you say - One call a day keeps the doctor away - And I know that you’ll find me - Before the end of this world

10 - Stronger Higher Faster

Its all you ever wanted from the start — All you ever had in your heart — There’s a million miles in a step — That’s a secret you haven’t kept — Doubts could sometimes rain like clouds — But the flames upheld the lines and never let you down — And now — Its so loud — In your home town

If darkness steals what you fight for — Then dying hard makes it worth more — This is the anthem for dreaming out loud — You, you’ve known it always — You, you’ve felt it always

And that’s what makes you stronger — Pulling you higher — Pushes you faster — Takes you that much farther — Taking hearts with you — As all eyes are on you — Believing hands are holding — Onto you (repeat)

11 - When I Think Of You

Things aren’t at all what they seem — Clouds fade to blue in such extremes — I’m melting fast pour me in a glass, I’ll fill it up — Become bright like a buttercup — Miles turn to inches, rocks to soft cuddly pillows — And bitter turns to sweet lemonade — Lets have a parade

When I think of you  — My heart explodes — When I think of you — You’re all I wanna know — When I think of you — Time’s out the door — When I think of you — I’m always late for work — When I think of you — I feel clean in the dirt — When I think of you — The night glows so bright — When I think of you — Everything becomes right — When I think of you

And you’re a million miles away from my arms — And you’re a million hours from the next time I hear you sing — To my heart — Yes you’ll sing — To my heart

CHORUS

Things aren’t at all what they seem

Clouds fade to blue in such extremes

I’m melting fast pour me in a glass, I’ll fill it up

12 - I'm A Slow Learner

All the patience on your end — I never gave a single glance — I realize now the rose you were and — All the colour in my sunrise sky — My sunrise sky — I am on my own without you — Losing on my own without you — Falling to the ground without you — Nothing’s what I know without you — Am I crazy I don’t think so — This is reality without you here — So come back now

I admit it — I’m a fool — I was wrong — Please come back now — I’m a slow learner — I’m a slow learner

Mistakes I’ve made — I’m not perfect and you know this — And you’re the only one that knows what I’m thinking — Before I screw up — And after I do it you let me go — You still love me so — This is something no-one else does — And after losing you I feel it deep within me — I’m losing sleep and I can’t breathe — What did I do before I met you

These days the food just don’t taste that good — And grey days are something that I’ve come to get used to — But no longer do I wanna endure this — The pain is a reminder that I need to

Admit it — I’m a fool, I was wrong — Please come back now — I’m a slow learner — I’m a slow learner

I was dropped on my head — My parents did drug — What else can I say — I’m just slower than you — That’s why I need you, that’s why I want you to come back — I need you babe!

I admit it, I’m a fool, please come back now x3

I’m a slow learner x3

13 - Hurts So Hard

Barely holding on — To something you just don’t have — You shoot up a flare cause you need attention — Ok I’ll hear you out — I’ll let you win so we can move on now — I’m trying to fix something that seems to be always broken — I’m standing on a string — Stretched across a canyon wide — I’m balancing on your faith to take me through this ride — Take me through this — Through this ride — Just get me through this ride, oh

The lights are on but everything’s wrong — You can’t seem to see through your jealousy — Eyes all around me I thought love was supposed to be blind — Take our love and paint it black — That’s how it feels when you jump on my back — So busy reaching — You kill this heart when you attack — And its hurts so hard — Hurts me so hard — And it hurts, and it hurts — Hurts me so hard oh

I wanna say it to you now — I wanna say it to you when — There are moments that are awkward to begin — You need to understand that — My love is not a command and — It only squeezes me through your hands — Through your tight fisted hands — Through your hands, oh

I’m a man that loves you now — I’m a man that wants you bad — But you’re making it difficult for me to give what I got — I’ve got enough to give you more — I’ve got enough to make you right — Open up your hands so I can put all I have in yours — All I have is yours — All I have is yours — It’s yours — It’s always yours

And it hurts, and it hurts me

And it hurts, and it hurts me so hard (repeat)

14 - London Is Calling

London is calling your name — And out of the fog it plays a game — Some days I lose — The city I’m from — London is calling — Your name — Whispers through shadows — And through its fame — And anonymity hides people and souls as a transient population flows onto the west side of town

And you just survive, sometimes — You barely survive

London can’t hear me cry as I’m talking back — Swallowed by the sky — My voice starts to crack — I lost my place and found it here — I left my home and made it here — Dug up my life — And sewed the seeds to make a great big tree

And I just survive, sometimes — I barely survive

Its hard to wake up when it’s a cold day — There’s someone waiting to take my place — Steal my air supply in the elevator and subways — No privacy but alone being watched all day

And I just survive, sometimes — I barely survive…..

15 - You Deserve Love

I’m serious when I say my words to you — You’ve given more than you’re probably supposed to — There’s no one in this world I want to see smile more than you — I’ve seen the tears you hide — I’ve felt the hurt you protect on the inside — There’s no one in this world I want to see smile more than you

Time to let the sun shine on you — Close your eyes and let the warmth fill you — Time to let yourself dream the dreams that you still want

You deserve love — You deserve love

Its time to wish upon the moon and stars — Let your dreams meet your heart — Its time to let yourself have the things that you still want

You deserve love — You deserve love

Love, love, love

You deserve love, love love

You deserve love

16 - Nothing Left To Prove

Pieces of my heart — Held within your hands — Makes me feel like I am whole again — Take your time with me — I tend to fall too fast — And every time I break there’s always less of me than before — Than before

So many pieces to pick up — So much I’ve left behind — It seems you’re rebuilding what’s missing — You do it every time — I’ve slipped through so many fingers — Been dropped so many times — It seems you’ve got me feeling like — I might never die — Cause every time I’m held by you — You leave with nothing left to prove, to prove

Something in your heart — Heals me inside out — Your skin touching mine feels like a thousand stars dancing on my spine — Saving me — With your touch — With your words — With those looks you give when you are wanting love — Wanting love

So many pieces to pick up — So much I’ve left behind — It seems you’re rebuilding what’s missing — You do it every time — I’ve slipped through so many fingers — Been dropped so many times — It seems you’ve got me feeling like — I might never die — And every time I’m held by you — You leave with nothing left to prove, to prove

17 - We Are Canucks

Hey, have you seen us lately — Callin all the shots even with an injured roster — Time to know its time to believe — That the time is now that we’re gonna make em bleed — Top shelf is always open that’s the place where Kesler rocks the water bottle floatin — Daniel and Henrik are always causing pain with a tape to tape pass that’ll mesmerize your brain — Burrows flying at you with a hit as clean Mrs Cleaver from that show leave it to beaver — Luongo’s glove hand stick side pads are double stacked — Gives the opposition a scoring heart attack

O its our time — We’re gonna fight — So get on the train and sing right — We are Canucks — We are Canucks — We are the ones who will drink from Stanley’s Cup X2 — Hey ‘O’ let’s go, the D is gonna shut ‘em down — Hey ‘O’ let’s go, the D is gonna shut ‘em down

These are the Presidents men — They put the best to the test — They’ve got a hold on the rest — And you know that

No-one can stand in our way — We’ll take ‘em 16 straight — Let em throw sticks and stones we won’t break — Gonna hear us say

O its our time — We’re gonna fight — So get on the train and sing (like)right — We are Canucks — We are Canucks — We are the ones who will drink from Stanley’s Cup — (C-A-N-U-C-K-S)

Stay In Touch (2013)
01 - Stay In Touch

You look at me with that inquisitive face — Don’t know the answer but I love the question — Got my attention 100% and — Through my ears you’re tuggin’ at my heart — I see a boy helping a girl — He doesn’t know but he just helped the world — There’s something simple bout the word hello — Mixed with a smile it makes it all worthwhile — Now I feel you as a wonderful thing — Cozy like a comforter and fresh like spring — And even when you rain you may think you’re a downer — But that’s part of your song and I love it when its out there

Sing it louder for me — And stay in touch

Sometimes the things that suck are the things that bring luck — Like the stories told — The ones that never get old — Are the battles we’ve won — The strangers we’ve loved — The days past the sun — Tragedies overcome — Love is a verb that spells abundance — A doing word that gives us the substance — To get past the wrongs — Lose all regrets — Forgive ourselves of our spiritual debts  — And just live…

So stay in touch — With your heart

All we feel is who we love, when we touch — Reaching out just brings it in — As we start to begin.. to let love in

I don’t often understand my world — And so I search for someone else’s words — You’re pouring answers deep inside my brain — It fills me up so I can sing again — We all have the same goal in mind — Save, protect, heal and love when we can — And every day’s a challenge cause something falls apart — So every day’s a chance to put together someone’s heart — Sometimes its scary when you get what you want — Frustrating when its not what you need — But there’s always someone there — Someone who can help you but only if you want it — So stay in touch

All we feel is who we love, when we touch — Reaching out just brings it in — As we start to begin, oh — Love is a verb that spells abundance — A doing word that gives us the substance — Its about connection — So ya connect the dots and ya feel the thoughts of your friends now — Are the keys to my understanding of this world

And I’m learning to be a friend - And I - Take it from a friend - And I listen to your heart, Listen to what you say - One call a day keeps the doctor away - And I know that you’ll find me - Before the end of this world

02 - Something Right

I broke my heart to let you in  — That’s why I’m running so far just to find you again  — Can’t hide the clouds can’t try to pretend  — That when you’re lost I’m sunk in the end — There’s something special something right  — There’s something opening in your eyes  — I want to give this prize in my heart to a deserving you  — I want this light to shine and always be true

So if you’re the someone I can’t be without  — And you’re the one I always dream about  — Give me your heartbreak and I will come

Untie my heart strings and come all undone

If I’m someone you want  — If I’m someone you need  — I hope there’s room for me in your heart

There’s something special something right  — You’re someone special opening my eyes  — When I’m asleep I’m at the gates  — We’re passing through into our place  — And I dream

(Na na…)There’s something right in your heart (repeat)

03 - Did You Know

Often times I apologized too late — I didn’t choose my words that well when I tried to help you — Was guilty of waiting to speak, I fell right through you — Through you, through you — Like a rope, you are strong — You can pull me to safety — Life is short but time is long, its ok to waste some — Answers are few and far between — But if you only know one thing

Did you know that I love you? — Do you know that I love you — Did you know, do you know (Repeat)

All I have is what you are, to me — The weight you have in my heart can lift or sink me — And I’m afraid of your strength but I’m learning to hold you — And all I need for you to know from me

Did you know that I love you? — Do you know that I love you — Did you know, do you know (Repeat)

Did you know do you know did you know do you — Did you know do you know did you know do you

04 - When I Think Of You

Things aren’t at all what they seem — Clouds fade to blue in such extremes — I’m melting fast pour me in a glass, I’ll fill it up — Become bright like a buttercup — Miles turn to inches, rocks to soft cuddly pillows — And bitter turns to sweet lemonade — Lets have a parade

When I think of you  — My heart explodes — When I think of you — You’re all I wanna know — When I think of you — Time’s out the door — When I think of you — I’m always late for work — When I think of you — I feel clean in the dirt — When I think of you — The night glows so bright — When I think of you — Everything becomes right — When I think of you

And you’re a million miles away from my arms — And you’re a million hours from the next time I hear you sing — To my heart — Yes you’ll sing — To my heart

CHORUS

Things aren’t at all what they seem

Clouds fade to blue in such extremes

I’m melting fast pour me in a glass, I’ll fill it up

05 - I Get It

If you’re trying to send a message then I get it loud and clear — I know most guys don’t get it but I don’t have their ears — I maybe slow and sometimes — I get lost between the lines — But there’s nothing in the fine print it’s a neon sign

I get it — I’m nothing to you — I get it  — I’m nothing to you — Nothing’s in the fine print — It’s a neon sign

All this time your eyes were locked and loaded on mine — I guess its something that you do with any other guy — You got me intoxicated like a good red wine — And though I loved it as it happened now I understand

I get it — I’m nothing to you — I get it  — I’m nothing to you — Nothing’s in the fine print — It’s a neon sign

What happened to you? — I guess I don’t have enough game — What happened to you? — I’m nothing but a man — I’m just a player to you — You gave me some love — And I felt it deep inside — My intentions were true — What happened to all the feelings you claimed — You claimed that you

I get it — I’m nothing to you — I get it  — I’m nothing to you — Nothing’s in the fine print — It’s a neon sign

06 - I'm A Slow Learner

All the patience on your end — I never gave a single glance — I realize now the rose you were and — All the colour in my sunrise sky — My sunrise sky — I am on my own without you — Losing on my own without you — Falling to the ground without you — Nothing’s what I know without you — Am I crazy I don’t think so — This is reality without you here — So come back now

I admit it — I’m a fool — I was wrong — Please come back now — I’m a slow learner — I’m a slow learner

Mistakes I’ve made — I’m not perfect and you know this — And you’re the only one that knows what I’m thinking — Before I screw up — And after I do it you let me go — You still love me so — This is something no-one else does — And after losing you I feel it deep within me — I’m losing sleep and I can’t breathe — What did I do before I met you

These days the food just don’t taste that good — And grey days are something that I’ve come to get used to — But no longer do I wanna endure this — The pain is a reminder that I need to

Admit it — I’m a fool, I was wrong — Please come back now — I’m a slow learner — I’m a slow learner

I was dropped on my head — My parents did drug — What else can I say — I’m just slower than you — That’s why I need you, that’s why I want you to come back — I need you babe!

I admit it, I’m a fool, please come back now x3

I’m a slow learner x3

07 - Even When You're Not Sure

I won’t wait ‘till sunrise to tell you it feels right — No, I can’t assume that you know this just because I hold you tight — So I won’t wait another minute — I need you to know that

I want you always — Even when you’re not sure — And, I want you always — Always and forever, girl

You may be mad that I woke you — Because it’s 6 am and you were sleeping soundly — But then I kiss you again and you find it — The little girl within — The smile that makes me happy — Though we are together today — Let me remind you that

I want you always — Even when you’re not sure — And, I want you always — Always and forever, girl

Even when we pick a fight — I know that you’re always right — There’s something in your eyes that makes me listen — All the big things that you sacrifice — To make sure the stars shine bright at night — My memory, it won’t go missing — That’s what I woke you to say — That’s what I woke you to say

CHORUS

08 - Stronger, Higher, Faster

Its all you ever wanted from the start — All you ever had in your heart — There’s a million miles in a step — That’s a secret you haven’t kept — Doubts could sometimes rain like clouds — But the flames upheld the lines and never let you down — And now — Its so loud — In your home town

If darkness steals what you fight for — Then dying hard makes it worth more — This is the anthem for dreaming out loud — You, you’ve known it always — You, you’ve felt it always

And that’s what makes you stronger — Pulling you higher — Pushes you faster — Takes you that much farther — Taking hearts with you — As all eyes are on you — Believing hands are holding — Onto you (repeat)

09 - You Deserve Love

I’m serious when I say my words to you — You’ve given more than you’re probably supposed to — There’s no one in this world I want to see smile more than you — I’ve seen the tears you hide — I’ve felt the hurt you protect on the inside — There’s no one in this world I want to see smile more than you

Time to let the sun shine on you — Close your eyes and let the warmth fill you — Time to let yourself dream the dreams that you still want — You deserve love — You deserve love

It’s time to wish upon the moon and stars — Let your dreams meet your heart — It’s time to let yourself have the things that you still want — You deserve love — You deserve love

Love, love, love — You deserve love, love love (Repeat)

10 - No Off Switch

There’s a light on in my head and it  — Shines bright like the lights in Vegas  — There’s no-one else that has control and — Nobody else that even comes close and I  — I’m helpless for you

There’s no off switch on me (x3) — I’m turned on, forever by you

My light shines on a daily basis  — I turn sighs into smiling faces  — Wherever I go it lights the darkest places  — And this is all from the sweetest lady I know  — Its time that you know

There’s no off switch on me (x3) — I’m turned on, endlessly by you (Repeat)

By You

11 - Let's Make Out

I, I've got all my walls up  — And I can see that you've got yours — And I don't mind — I, I just wanna hold you — Maybe take you out for a drink — And see what's behind that wink

I, promise I won't try to save you — No I won't be your crutch — I won't ask for much — Cause right now I think its good for us — To just make out — Let’s make out — Make out (x4)

I know we've broken many hearts and — There isn't much left of our own — And now we're standing all alone — Cause you know love is a complicated thing  — And there's really no reason  — No reason that we can't get past all this — Just for a little innocent kiss

Cause we don't just have the time  — To fix the leaks and cracks — While you're sitting in my lap — Now I can't hold back from you — So let's make out — Let's make out (x3) — Let’s just kiss

I just wanna have some fun — Feel the warmth of the sun — Lose ourselves in this place  — I need to see just what you taste like — And I, I don't care what people say  — I just wanna, wanna play — I wanna take you there — Maybe I'll take you there

So let's make out (Oh underneath the moon) — Let’s make out (Oh underneath the stars) — Let’s make out (Oh in the back of class) — Let’s make out (Oh in the back of church) — On a plane up high — In the in the sky  — Make you laugh again — Let’s just kiss

12 - We Are Canucks

Hey, have you seen us lately — Callin all the shots even with an injured roster — Time to know its time to believe — That the time is now that we’re gonna make em bleed — Top shelf is always open that’s the place where Kesler rocks the water bottle floatin — Daniel and Henrik are always causing pain with a tape to tape pass that’ll mesmerize your brain — Burrows flying at you with a hit as clean Mrs Cleaver from that show leave it to beaver — Luongo’s glove hand stick side pads are double stacked — Gives the opposition a scoring heart attack

O its our time — We’re gonna fight — So get on the train and sing right — We are Canucks — We are Canucks — We are the ones who will drink from Stanley’s Cup X2 — Hey ‘O’ let’s go, the D is gonna shut ‘em down — Hey ‘O’ let’s go, the D is gonna shut ‘em down

These are the Presidents men — They put the best to the test — They’ve got a hold on the rest — And you know that

No-one can stand in our way — We’ll take ‘em 16 straight — Let em throw sticks and stones we won’t break — Gonna hear us say

O its our time — We’re gonna fight — So get on the train and sing (like)right — We are Canucks — We are Canucks — We are the ones who will drink from Stanley’s Cup — (C-A-N-U-C-K-S)

13 - I'm On A Horse (Old Spice Song)

Hello Ladies — Look at your man — Now back to me — Now back at your man — Now back to me — Sadly, he isn’t me — But he could smell like he’s me — If he stopped using ladies scented body wash and switched to old spice

Look down, back up — You’re on a boat — With the man your man could smell like — What’s in your hand — Back at me, I have it — It’s an oyster with two tickets to that thing you love — Look again the tickets are now diamonds — Anything is possible when your man smells like old spice and not like a lady — I’m on a horse

14 - Happy Birthday Song

It’s your birthday (x3) — So have a good time — Ya have a good time

Now everybody's here — To give you love and cheer — To celebrate your life — ‘Cause you're the star tonight

It’s your birthday (Happy!)  — It’s your birthday (Birthday!) — It’s your birthday (Happy!) — So have a good time (Birthday!) — Ya have a good time  — Let’s have a good time (It’s ok) — We’re gonna party ’till its 1999 (To get drunk) — And you know we don't give a…

I Hate Liking You (2012)
01 - I Wanna Give You Something

Oooh oh yeah - Alright (x3)

I wanna get in some trouble right now — I gonna make some mistakes and get em out — I’m throwing all my stop signs to the wind — Revealing how I feel cause that's how we'll win — Even if I lose for a moment for a spell — No need to worry cause its only uphill — I’m at the edge of the cliff — I’m gonna float and free fall and get lifted

Ooh oh oh yeah oh oh yeah alright — I wanna give you something — I wanna give you lovin (x2)

I wanna give you something made from me — A sky that's blue and it tastes like ice cream — Its warm and cozy like a reggae song — And you can dance and feel the groove of it all night long — And its something real, something true, filled with faith — To make a smile cross your face and keep it always in place — Like the pyramids in Egypt its built to last — It’ll answer those questions you've always asked!

Chorus

I got love for you, alright — I got love for you, alright — Got so much love for you, alright — I got love

02 - Alone Together

We’re all alone for different reasons — Maybe that’s our cross to bear — If its any consolation — We’re alone together (x2) — We forget sometimes what we mean to each other — And we don’t see sometimes how we see one another —If anything should happen to me I want you to know — I know how you feel — Please know I know how much you feel

I feel the rain when it falls on you — I hold the cold in your bones too — I know how much you hurt in the middle — I know how much you hide — Cause I’m right there, with you

If there’s any consolation — There’s a crowd under the weather — If it’s any consolation — It’s a road we share — If it’s any consolation — There’s a line and we’re all in it — If it’s any consolation — I’m right there with you

Alone together — Alone together

I, I know we’ll find our way

03 - Perfect Set Of Troubles

I, I just want the chance — Chance to give you love — Cause I don’t think that we are far apart — I, I just want to say — Say that its not because — Not because of what you’d think — Not because you got that perfect smile — Not because you got that perfect skin and eyes and nose and hair — And you smell like fresh air

I just want the chance to fix you — Cause I think that you’ve got the right set — The right set of troubles for me — I just want the chance — Chance to try to fix you — With my love all around you — Around you, around you

Its funny how you crush me — And I don’t think there’s anyone for me beyond you — And we haven’t even kissed — Its funny how you seem to kill me — And I let you in my heart and no-one else but you

I just want the chance to try to fix you — Cause I just think that you’ve got the perfect set of troubles for me — I just wanna give you love

04 - I Hate Liking You

Most unexpected — Most unplanned for — Random meeting in the world on vacation — You came up to me — And as we chatted — Felt myself lose control — And I thought to myself — This is different — What’s this feeling — I’m not sure what it is — So I kissed you — And you kissed me back — That’s when my heart got attacked

I hate liking you — I hate liking you — I hate liking you oh so much (x2) — Cause my hearts falling fast — And I'm not sure if you’ll catch it — Catch it, catch it, and I don’t feel very comfortable with that

So we laughed and we kissed some more — ’Till I walked you to the door — Then the next day though a little awkward — But everything seemed ok come on now — We made plans to — Meet again another day and just couldn't wait — Tried to play it cool — Not be a fool — And stay away from my phone — But I broke down and — Sent you a love note — Hoping to hear back — And you can guess why I'm singing this song

CHORUS

I get texts annoyed its not you — I get phone calls — So irritating that their not you — I’m waiting here just counting the minutes to the hours ’till you call — It’s so ironic cause

I waited so long for this feeling — My walls are so high its so surprising — And now that its here — I’m not sure I like feeling it this way.

I hate liking you — I hate wanting you — I hate waiting here like a fool — I hate wanting you — I hate needing you — I hate crushing on you so much — Cause my heart is falling — And my heart is falling so fast — Cause my heart’s falling fast —And I'm not sure if you'll catch it —Catch it — Catch it

05 - Let The Stars Fall (Feat. Hilary Grist)

I don't wanna be the guy that breaks up a good thing — But maybe breaking up for you is the best thing — I know you can feel this crazy energy between us — Its gravity unstoppable even when he is right there — There’s no way that we could've planned this — But maybe we should go with it — It doesn't always happen this strong — This is special — This is once in a lifetime — We could be just friends but more would be so much cooler

There’s a reason why every time we meet we have a connection — Its so obvious why do we try to deny it — We don't have to chase it — It’s right there — People spend their lives trying to fill their hearts with cotton candy conversation — There’s nothing that we have to do — Just connect the dots and let the stars fall — Let the stars fall where they may

I don't wanna be the girl that breaks up a good thing — But maybe breaking up for you is the best thing — Every time I hear your voice I think about what I'm missing — Could it be the stars aligned telling us we belong together — There’s no way that we could've planned this — But maybe we should go with it — It doesn't always happen this strong — This is special — This is once in a lifetime — We could be just friends but more would be so much cooler

CHORUS

And maybe — You and I can touch the sky or go beyond — We might never know so — Let’s not regret what we didn't do — There’s no way to know until we try — Cause let's not lie

CHORUS

I know I know I know you feel it baby (repeat)

"I Hate Liking You"

david blair things left unsaid
Things Left Unsaid (2009)
01 - This Is The Soundtrack

You’re the stolen song I stumbled upon — Two months and three days ago — Might not seem like long — It’s funny what you find — When you’re not even looking — It was right between the lines — And something came over me — Over you, over us — There’s nothing to describe — The way that I felt that night — The rush to my head and — The waves full of color — Like a sunrise in summer — Made of violets and reds — I lost all consciousness of what I said

This is the soundtrack — To our conversations — You’re the laughter in my smile — And I just wrote you an empty love song — If I don’t have you and can’t get you back — Can’t get you back

Fast forward to right now — I somehow lost your hand — In a crowd full of nobodies — Not exactly how I planned — Doesn’t matter how it starts — It’s only how it ends — But everything in between — Make me know that there’s still a chance

This is the soundtrack to our conversations — You’re the laughter in my smile — And I just wrote you an empty love song — If I don’t have you and can’t get you back — Can’t get you back

Can’t get you back, oh — I’ll sing along with our song — Cause I feel you still you near — Hoping this can bring you home — Bring you home, bring you home

I just wrote you an empty love song if I don’t have you…

This is the soundtrack — To our conversations — You’re the laughter in my smile — And I just wrote you an empty love song — If I don’t have you and can’t get you back — Can’t get you back

It’s funny what you find — When you’re not even looking — It was right between the lines

words and music: David Blair

02 - You Make Me Ok

You always find a way to make things cool — It seems I was born awkward like an unused garage tool — And you make me ok, you make me ok (x2) — You’re like the clutch between me and the world — They spin at different speeds and you somehow you make it work — And you make me ok, you make me ok (x2)

My friends used to laugh at my expense — And my feelings always seemed to pay — But somehow when you poke at me, you find another way — To make a half smile escape from my face — Wow, wow, wow (x2)

Like a Swiss watch — You’re timing is perfect — You must be telepathic cause you know when I’m thinking of you — And you work it, and you work it — And you work it

My friends used to laugh at my expense — And my feelings always seemed to pay — But somehow when you poke at me, you find another way — To make a half smile escape from my face — I’m serious but I can’t stay tense with you smiling at me in this room — There’s nothing that I can do but let this flower that we’ve planted bloom

And you make me ok, you make me ok — You make me ok, you make me ok — You always find a way to make things cool

Wow, wow, wow (repeat)

You make me ok

03 - Thing Called Love

If it’s all I got now — In this great big city — It’s worth a million pennies — Luckily found by me — I may not always call you — When I say I will but I — I throw in random surprises — Make up for the doubt that I know that you feel — I show up at your door — A half an hour late — I made you mad cause I  — Made you wait but there’s

Light at the end of the tunnel — Blue in this clouded sky — Rain for this thirsty desert — Waiting for the wind to pull through and — I know that I am changing and  — You should by now feel it too cause  — We can’t explain why were caught in thing called love — This thing called love

Holding on to the though that — We can walk on water — I wake up late writing letters — That seem to be writing themselves — I slide my life in your hands — Cause everyday I feel safer — Whenever I’m caught in your bad books — I know there’s a chance cause I know that you care — I gave you advice again — Opened my big wide mouth — I just wasn’t listening — So you threw me out but there’s

CHORUS

I show up at your door — A dozen roses in hand — I gotta make up for all my — Broken plans — Cause yes you know there’s

CHORUS

04 - Hurts So Hard

Barely holding on — To something you just don’t have — You shoot up a flare cause you need attention — Ok I’ll hear you out — I’ll let you win so we can move on now — I’m trying to fix something that seems to be always broken — I’m standing on a string — Stretched across a canyon wide — I’m balancing on your faith to take me through this ride — Take me through this — Through this ride — Just get me through this ride, oh

The lights are on but everything’s wrong — You can’t seem to see through your jealousy — Eyes all around me I thought love was supposed to be blind — Take our love and paint it black — That’s how it feels when you jump on my back — So busy reaching — You kill this heart when you attack — And its hurts so hard — Hurts me so hard — And it hurts, and it hurts — Hurts me so hard oh

I wanna say it to you now — I wanna say it to you when — There are moments that are awkward to begin — You need to understand that — My love is not a command and — It only squeezes me through your hands — Through your tight fisted hands — Through your hands, oh

I’m a man that loves you now — I’m a man that wants you bad — But you’re making it difficult for me to give what I got — I’ve got enough to give you more — I’ve got enough to make you right — Open up your hands so I can put all I have in yours — All I have is yours — All I have is yours — It’s yours — It’s always yours

And it hurts, and it hurts me

And it hurts, and it hurts me so hard (repeat)

05 - I've Been Hiding

There’s something that’s on my mind — It’s kinda wearing me down — I’ve burned and abused my time — How many days have I left out — I know that you’re out there — But I’m closing my eyes — I’m softening my heart — And taking off this disguise — I hope you can see me — In the starlight — I’m just past the hillside — A little more to the right

Everything all that I have — It’s already in you — You already own me — You have me — All that you need is to find me — I’m right here hiding — Please don’t tell anybody — I’ve been hiding

Honestly, hopefully, maybe I’ll open my eyes — And not be scared to see — Through the bright lights — I’ll listen for your song cause, cause, cause

I hope you can see me — In the starlight — I’m just past the hillside — A little more to the right

Everything all that I have — It’s already in you — You already own me — You have me — All that you need is to find me — I’m right here hiding — Please don’t tell anybody (x3)

I’ve been hiding (Repeat)

06 - I Want To Fall

I’m a redwood standing so tall — I’ve been strong by myself for so long — Withstood the heavy rains through the spring and fall — Scars in shapes of hearts carved by others — Branches cut to make room for lovers — It’s been a hundred years and more — But I’m still standing

I want to fall (x2) — In luh luh love (x2)

I’m the moon hanging with the stars — Wish one would collide into me like two cars — Need a comet to take me out and shake my feet — Cause I’m still standing — I can see so clearly — For once all I want is to be blind — All I want is to go crazy — I just wanna lose my mind

I want to fall (x2) — In luh luh love (x2)

Break down the walls — And fall in love

I just wanna free fall — I don’t wanna think clearly — I just wanna lose track of time

I want to fall — In luh luh love — In luh luh love — I want to fall — Break down the walls and fall in love

07 - London Is Calling

London is calling your name — And out of the fog it plays a game — Some days I lose — The city I’m from — London is calling — Your name — Whispers through shadows — And through its fame — And anonymity hides people and souls as a transient population flows onto the west side of town

And you just survive, sometimes — You barely survive

London can’t hear me cry as I’m talking back — Swallowed by the sky — My voice starts to crack — I lost my place and found it here — I left my home and made it here — Dug up my life — And sewed the seeds to make a great big tree

And I just survive, sometimes — I barely survive

Its hard to wake up when it’s a cold day — There’s someone waiting to take my place — Steal my air supply in the elevator and subways — No privacy but alone being watched all day

And I just survive, sometimes — I barely survive…..

08 - Right From The Start

I won’t ever ever let go of this — It’s the hand that holds my will — This will never ever leave me — As long as time stands still — Words that I will always stand on — Bricks and mortar hold me high — Heavy thoughts held in your shoulders — Were released when you would cry

And I was always listening — For sounds coming from your heart — From the start — And you were always singing — The songs that we all forgot — From the start

Take a different sized opinion — Paint it shiny and bright — Photograph it in color — And you got just what you need right

CHORUS

Right from the start (x4)

CHORUS

Right from the start (Repeat)

09 - I Will Guess You

Well I’ve run out of time — And I’m in no rush — And it seems there’s a chance — I won’t be alone — There’s a key in you — And a road that can lead me too — But I can never, never seem to go — You said the miles and the miles were the same — They add up to nothing but they made you feel pain — And you, only you — You know the riddle — The rhyme in the game — But refuse to reveal the color or the name — In you, in only you

So I will guess you — I will guess you — And its ok — And I owe you faith — Cause I always believed that you could — That you could do — All the pictures you make — From all the patterns you break — In all the sun you create — Across the blue and white sky — You and I made — I hear that part of your heart that cries — And I know you can find it before it dies – It’s for me, only me — Your tears are so heavy — And they flood all the roads — And you’ve lost all control and you won’t say so — Even when you know — You won’t say so….

So I will guess you (Repeat)

You were the song that I couldn’t seem to sing  — I just couldn’t find the notes or the chords that would ring — To me and only me

I’m finding my way through the darkness in the night — I’m following the warmth from the candles that you light — For me and only me — And I will guess you

I will guess you (Repeat)

10 - Finally Feeling

I can tell from all your smiling — Those notes you’re hiding are ringing through clear — Your words are falling into my dreams — So sweet the birds have followed me here — Cause I…

I’ve started to listen — I’m finally feeling with my heart — The tips of my fingers — Are bringing me back to every part — I want you to notice — I want you to know that you are this — The part that is glowing — The part that my body seems to miss

I love hearing stories when you’re in the clouds — I’m out in the open let the stars rain down — The sun is so far but it’s all around and I, I — I don’t wanna let you down

I’m starting to listen — I’m finally feeling with my heart — The tips of my fingers — Are bringing me back to every part — I want you to notice — I want you to know that you are this — The part that is glowing — The part that my body seems to miss

I don’t wanna let you down (Repeat)

CHORUS

11 - It Might Come True

Close your eyes — Lay back your head — Let yourself fall to a different world instead — Dance with the girl — Build with the boy — Play in the sand all the world is your toy — You will find that nothing matters this time — In dreams you believe

Staring at the star filled sky — You’re tracing the patterns with your eyes — They feel so close — Every last one — Tomorrow will bring what today has undone — You will see the sun come into your dreams — You believe and you see

Fill your glass with songs that last — Unfold your thoughts and let them blossom in autumn — Butterflies are following me — Nothing can hide the smiles over me

Fall to me — Hide in my arms — The warmth of your heart makes us fly to the stars — Hold your breath and look down slow — We’re flying above all the people below — Hope and pray — You will dream a song that sings like spring — If you dream, dream out loud — It might come true — It might come true — It might come true

12 - Nothing Left To Prove

Pieces of my heart — Held within your hands — Makes me feel like I am whole again — Take your time with me — I tend to fall too fast — And every time I break there’s always less of me than before — Than before

So many pieces to pick up — So much I’ve left behind — It seems you’re rebuilding what’s missing — You do it every time — I’ve slipped through so many fingers — Been dropped so many times — It seems you’ve got me feeling like — I might never die — Cause every time I’m held by you — You leave with nothing left to prove, to prove

Something in your heart — Heals me inside out — Your skin touching mine feels like a thousand stars dancing on my spine — Saving me — With your touch — With your words — With those looks you give when you are wanting love — Wanting love

So many pieces to pick up — So much I’ve left behind — It seems you’re rebuilding what’s missing — You do it every time — I’ve slipped through so many fingers — Been dropped so many times — It seems you’ve got me feeling like — I might never die — And every time I’m held by you — You leave with nothing left to prove, to prove

"Things Left Unsaid"

david blair hard to control
Hard To Control (2007)
01 - All I Want

I think you noticed oh — I bet you noticed by now — I’m just a tiny bit loud — I’m my own little crowd — Let your hair down — Girl go ahead, unbutton your shirt — Lets see that famous smirk — Hike a little more skirt — We’re gonna dance — We’re gonna dance all night long — Down a drink that’s really strong — And sing your favourite song

Cause all I really want is — All I really want is you — To have some fun — And feel the moments one by one — All I really want is — All I really want is you — To play with me — And unlock our intimacy

You’re so fantastic oh — I’m so distracted its true — I can’t take my eyes off you — You’re such a beautiful view — We’ll take a trip, runaway — Drive my car to the ground — And leave it in someone else’s town — I didn’t want it anyhow

CHORUS

And when the sun rises up I know that you’ll be with me — No matter what cause it couldn’t be better with anyone else you see — With anyone else

CHORUS

02 - Never Wanna Live Without

You know that we have done some crazy things together — Remember running naked through the park together — It wasn’t long ago we professed our love and things were all good — But things have changed although it’s still sunny weather — And we’re not making love no more to each other — But I wouldn’t trade the world for what we have instead ‘cause you know

I don’t ever wanna live without — Never ever wanna see you down — Take the memories that we love the most — Put them in a book and make a toast — Cry a river on your shoulder at night — Be as vulnerable as I would like — Call in sick for work and run through the rain — Make a moment that we can’t explain

You know I still can’t stand that you’re always on time — And I know that you hate it I’m late past a dime — I’m a little bit vain and I talk about myself a little too much — You’re a little bit strange when you dance your dance — A little stubborn when you want your way there’s no chance — That you’re ever gonna change and I like it that way

CHORUS

Was there ever any doubt — That we’d always stick it out — Through thick and through the thin — Ya I think there was one time — That our souls just didn’t rhyme — But that’s what has brought us to this place

CHORUS

03 - Saved For You

You never know — On any given day what the day will show — And what you can learn if you wanna know — The answers to your mistakes  and heart breaks — And it breaks my heart — When you fall apart — I just want you to heal — I just want you to feel — The bricks taken off your back

I wish I hadn’t said what I said — I wanna jump in your head — And find out what you’re thinking — Find out why you’re sinking — Sing you a melody — Help you out of a tree — As I continue to think out loud and I

Say uh uh its not enough to quit — Sew you up when you are torn and ripped — Kiss your pain goodbye when you fall from the sky — It’s you and you know – My best is saved for you — Saved for you

Solid oak tree is what I try to be — But somehow through the holes you see in me — There’s a light that shines to my surprise — And you’re all I want — When you fall apart — Throw my answers away — For every question you say — Cause I know that its for the best

If I close my eyes and start — To listen with my heart — Give you room to breathe — And let you pour your thoughts on me — Sing a melody — Help you out of a tree — As you continue to think out loud and you

CHORUS

04 - Renegade Soul

People call me crazy cause they can’t quite figure me out — But I know — Nothing in this world can save me — nothing ‘cept a little love for my heart broke soul — Nothing can save me my heart broken soul — Sometimes I hear the song — Sometimes I stand deaf and alone — A cat that uses all nine lives — That’s me, that’s just how I thrive — When I hurt, when I heal — As I waltz through this crazy game

I talk a million words in a beat — When signs are saying I shouldn’t speak — Some days I’m in the front row at church — Some nights I’m plotting plans in the dirt — To escape, steal a day — Run away to another town to play

Cause I’m a renegade soul — I’m always ready to go — Cause I don’t know how to slow down

Suffocating slowly in a soft warm comfortable place – Doesn’t feel right — Killing you with kindness is the way I like to get in your face — Calm as midnight

Sometime I lack the discipline — I speed and pay the price again — I know this day is soon gonna end — Before its done I’m having no regrets — Running hard, driving fast — Jumping blind, falling further from my place

When I feel fine and my life is safe — That’s when I draw the line — And contemplate this place

Cause I’m a renegade soul — I’m always ready to go — Cause I don’t know how to slow down — To keep my feet on the ground — And stick around — I’m a renegade soul

05 - All My Love

I want to, I need to — I feel with my heart — What I say to you — All the songs that I sing — All the flowers I bring — Don’t begin to show you — All my love, all my love — All the blue in the sky — All the sun in my eyes — This is what you are — You bring peace to my mind — Lovely memories I find — When I think of you and I pledge to you

All my love (Repeat)

If I knew of a chance that I’d be without you — I would dry up and die — I just know that beyond a shadow of a doubt — That you’re there for me

I want to, I need to — I feel with my heart — When I say I do

I love you (Repeat)

I feel you I know you your thoughts are with me always, always

06 - Let You Go

I felt you leave a while ago — And it tore me all to pieces — Put my game face on — Held my feelings back — Hoping desperately for changes — But now its gone too far

I don’t wanna feel you — I don’t wanna need you — I just wanna move on — I just need some time to leave it all behind me — Bleed you from my body — Cry you out my system — I just wanna let you go — I just wanna let you go

Try to tell myself — That I’m better off — Even when I’m feeling lonely — Took your pictures down — By only one by one — As I re-lived every memory — Try to hold back what I know

CHORUS

07 - Just You

There’s something about the way you live — That turns me on — I see you fight the rain and wind — They both slide and blow off your skin — And how you never grab onto habits that — That hold you down — Find a flower of faith when you need it most — And you let it grow

It’s just you — You, the truth and your love — That I see — Crossing deserts and seas — Just you

When I was growing up as a kid — I watched He-man and Star Wars and stories that would always spin — My dreams up in whirlwinds and my fantasies into space — But the hero guiding me — With all my hopes and trials to face — Was always standing with two feet on the ground — Making my life so profound — Raising me day after day wiping tears

It was you — You, your truth and your love — You gave to me — To cross all my deserts and seas — Just you

CHORUS

08 - Until It's Right

I used to write love songs — I used to fall hard with every crush — Lassoed the moon down — Gave it to the special girls I touched — Lost in a fantasy of my world — Scared ‘em away with too much of me — Now I let it be

All my life I’ve waited for you — Painted pictures built a house to — Hold up through the winter and at night — But I will wait until she’s right — It’s right for me

I’ve followed the road — Now it’s my turn to pick my path — I think that I’m close — To possibly finding her — The one I love the most ya — Maybe she’s someone I’ve known all my life — Maybe she’s on the bus next to me — And I won’t let it be

All my life I’ve waited for you — Painted pictures built a house to — Hold up through the winter and at night — But I will wait until she’s right — Maybe she’s someone I’ve known all my life — Maybe she’s on the train next to me — Maybe I should see

All my life I’ve waited for you — Painted pictures built a house to — Hold up through the winter and at night — But I’ll continue waiting — All my life I’ve waited for you — Painted pictures built a house to — Hold up through the winter and at night — And I’ll continue waiting for her — I’ll continue waiting — Waiting for her

09 - Trial By Self

I lost my sight — Lost my breath — Lost the fight — Somehow — I, I closed my eyes — Clenched my hands — And disappeared in fear — My foolish lies — They led me far from my life — Hid me away — From friends that tried to save me — Its been said before — That once its done its done — The knives I pull out your heart — Leave their ugly scars

And now I cry as I pray — For strength to finally say — I’m listening — I love you, I love you, I love you — But how can I sew back the torn trust between us

It’s all I can do — Now it’s all I can do — Now it’s all I can do — Now and I — It’s a trial by self

Tried to hide that side of me you hated — You couldn’t find a way to escape it — I bled my pain onto your plate — But it was already full of your own mistakes — It’s a trial by self — A trial by self — Trial by self

10 - Hard To Control

Sunday driving home — There’s no one on the road it’s late – I can’t think, but all my thoughts are screaming out loud — Stare at the road — As the yellow lines guide me home — And I’m fading far away on a train wreck of emotion — My eyes glaze over as I lose myself — How do I return to what only seemed like moments ago

I want my life back, some questions solved — I long for that balance that I always seemed to have when I was young — So hard to gauge now — When I’ve gone too far — It seems my extremes are so hard to control — So hard to control

Wake up its Wednesday — Feel like I’m 20 pounds overweight — Sleep deprived, I’m out of shape and my life’s a month behind — Social life on the shelf — I’m running marathons to change my health — But my friends say now they’ve lost another friend and it hurts — Dive in to a blanket of work to escape — Try to fix my mistakes by overcompensating

I want my life back, some questions solved — I long for that balance that I always seemed to have when I was young — So hard to gauge now — When I’ve gone too far — It seems my extremes are so hard to control — So hard to control

I’m trying to find the line — Between black and white, day and night — I need to fight for balance in what’s wrong and right

CHORUS

11 - Something That You Said To Me

Sometimes, I’m left to think about what you said — Until the next day — Because it takes a little while before it sinks in my head — ‘Cause all my thoughts are — I hope this all works out for the best — And the fact is — With my hope and my faith and with my purpose in life — But you reminded me — Of what that is — And every time you do you make me wanna sing

Something that you said to me — Has given me the strength I needed — Something more than what I am — Has pulled me all together — Changed my life forever — I know what I want now — Changed my life forever — I know what I need now — Always and forever

Knowing that you know me — Better than myself — You come back to me — Building my heart back up — Knowing that I’ll hold you in my arms real soon — And if you wanna know and wanna see — Why things are working now — This is how

CHORUS

I know this time won’t be the last time — That I’m cut down to my knees — But I know next time I fall — I’ll hear what I need just like always — But you reminded me — Of what that is — And every time you do you make me wanna sing

CHORUS

I know what I want now — I know what I need now

12 - Can You Feel It

Ohh lately, in your eyes I can see — All the fun that you know you can’t hide — You have all the time in the world — To believe that the playground is yours — You get lost in a fantastic place — Only found when you’re winning the race — Sing the song

Are you ready for the sunshine — Are you ready for the rain — Jump in the sea, take it from me — Everything’s how it should be — Can you feel it

And now its dark but the light’s not all gone — The glow of the sky keeps you calm — And you’re mind’s slowly running out of thoughts to say — As the fire flickers away

But you know there’s a time and a place — Go to sleep now let the sun warm your face — Sing the song

CHORUS

13 - London Is Calling (Acoustic)

London is calling your name — And out of the fog it plays a game — Some days I lose — The city I’m from — London is calling — Calling your name — Whispers through shadows — And through its fame — And anonymity hides people and souls — As a transient population flows onto the west side of town

And you just survive — Sometimes you barely survive

London can’t hear me cry as I’m talking back — Swallowed by the sky — My voice starts to crack — I lost my place and found it here — I left my home and made it here — Dug up my life — And sewed the seeds to grow a great big tree

And I just survive — Sometimes I’ve barely survived

Its hard to wake up when it’s a cold day — There’s someone waiting to take my place — Steal my air supply in the elevator and subways — No privacy but alone being watched all day

And you just survive — Sometimes you barely survive
