Speak From Your Heart


Forgiveness

Forgiveness, you want it
Forgiveness, you want it
Forgiveness, take you there,
where I want to be

The last page has ended
a new chapter appears
My foolish temper
won't get me this September
Forgiveness, you want it

Forgiveness, take you there,
where I want to be
Forgiveness, take you there,
where I want to be
Take you there, when you are not with me
Take you there, when you are not with me
Take you there, when you are not with me


Awake

No more bad dreams
I'm so awake
And I'm leaving bad feelings to rest
There's a magnetism here
But I'm leaving and taking a chance
Find me on the other side
Of what feels right
Nothing is forever but nothing feels right
Find me on the other side
Of what feels right
Nothing is forever but nothing feels right
Nothing is forever but nothing feels right


An Energy So Great

You're not afraid to wake me up
or tell me what to do
I need guidance sometimes, its true
You saw me stumble and picked me up
Don't know if you could ever feel bad
You're more fun than most people have
I'd follow you around, do anything you say
I'd follow you around, do anything you say
You have a power over people
An energy so great
An energy so great


Forest Fire

Deep as these woods go
I've been through their center
They're not so dark and intense
I've found solace in silence
You didn't need a light to follow me in
Dropping matches, run after lost chances
Forest fire you started the day that we parted
Did you watch the trees burn to the ground?
Everything charred and black
my inner voice says, "Don't go back,"

I just wanted to be in love with you


By the Sea

If I ever love anyone
I'll never move so far away
Why should I stay in my house by the sea
I wanna live today, in more towns than here
Think I'll be okay, without my friends near?
If I ever love anyone
I'll never move so far away
But whoever would miss me?
But whoever would miss me?


Alternate Realities

This could be the week
I'll slip into insanity
I'm not always ready to see another person
I can see alternate realities
but I can't touch, I wanna reach
Your true desire is a false hope
Your true desire

I'm not afraid
There's not anything that keeps me here
If I listen to what you tell me
I guess I'm really not so weird
I'm slippin out, he said "what are you thinking of?"
Alternate realities


Say

Walk to the other side
Staring so wide
at the tower that blocks your mind
It's only been lately,
I've seen you breaking the pieces that have risen too high

What was it you said,
that keeps you in your head
I've been trying to tell you it's what I like
Wonder and waiting
You're painting creating shapes,
colors not found in this world

We need an escape from,
"Whose turn is it anyways to turn out the light?"
I don't wanna be cold tonight
It happens when two people
spend their lives too close entwined
We must find a new connection,
keep love in our cells alive

Kiss me like you do when you miss me,
not like when you see me every day
and grow tired of my face
Kiss me like you do when you miss me,
not like when you see me every day,
say you want me around
Say you want me around
Say you want me around
Say you want me around
Say you want me, Say you want me

We need an escape from,
"Whose turn is it anyways to turn out the light?"
I don't wanna be cold tonight
I don't wanna be cold tonight


Speak From Your Heart

High hopes to hold his hand, you know
things won't go as you plan them
Think of all the power you hold
as the sun wakes you through your window

And no one is perfect, so
there is no truth that is true the most
And yet everyone thinks that they know
what happens when two people are alone

So what? Does it matter?
I never let it matter much
Emotional words that start to make sense, it's important
that you speak from your heart, sing it out
Speak from your heart, sing it out
Speak from your heart

Your friends are the ones who show they care
even when you can't find your phone
They're calling your name from the stairs of your home
"Come out and play, are you all alone?"
And sometimes we run away from problems,
I bet it's better to stay
And sometimes it's hard to just be yourself
If people see you as somebody else

So what? Does it matter?
I never let it matter much
Emotional words that start to make sense, it's important
that you speak from your heart, sing it out
Speak from your heart, sing it out
Speak from your heart
Your heart


Friends

You can be friends with anyone
You can be friends with anyone
You can be friends with anyone
You can be friends with anyone
But do you know what it's like to see a memory that was?
Do you know what it's like to see a memory that was?
Do you know what it's like to see a memory that was?
Do you know what it's like to see a memory that was so real?

I don't feel so pretty tonight
Yeah, I've been crying and I can't hide it
Who forgot to let all the light in
to the town shrouded in dark?
I'll stay at home, avoid any part
Bad feelings come alive in your eyes
But I am strong and full of love for everyone

So I'll write a letter to
a girl who only knew me as a stranger
And I'll say, "It's not your fault,
you happened to get caught up in my anger."
Can we be friends?

You can be friends with anyone
You can be friends with anyone
You can be friends with anyone
You can be friends with anyone
But do you know what it's like to see a memory that was?
Do you know what it's like to see a memory that was?
Do you know what it's like to see a memory that was?
Do you know what it's like to see a memory that was?


The Summertime

It's frightening to know
that our cells create souls
and that you would drive to see me
when we live in different cities
And I had a part of you
carried inside of me
Before I gave it to a place
where other people make mistakes

It brings us close, and further apart
Wasting a seed that wanted to grow up
But we are only kids who have just left our homes

You talk in your sleep
I'm silent six weeks
It's better when you're here keeping me safe,
holding me near
I'm saving my smiles for you
instead of sadness
I swallow when you disappear
for days when I have been unclear

What about when you no longer need me?
When you no longer wait impatient for me to come home?
I'm not needy but sometimes I need you
And it gets so hard to tell you all the times I've been wrong
So I'll fall asleep alone and hope it won't take long

Your patience is running thin
I keep guessing what you're thinking
I'm waiting for a sign to know it's okay
to think about the summertime
To think about the summertime
To know it's okay to think about you
