for all time

I’ve been biding my time. Spending these days
Like they were mine to waste.
It’s no wonder we keep passing without
So much
As a
Smile.
There doesn’t have to be a winner for one of us to fail.

So stop looking
What you have is
Right in front of you.
If you wanna
If you’re wiling
Time can be rewritten
Forever can be the norm.

I think as we get older, life holds on tighter
Like, it knows we could slip.
Anywhere. Anytime. Without
So much
As a
Sound.
There doesn’t have to be an end for there to be a start.

So stop looking
For a warning
Take what is yours and
If you wanna
If you’re willing
We can be that which
We keep with us for all time.

You look a bit sad, Please explain.
Tell me how, all this ends.
You look a bit scared, Understand….

My hand, is only the tip of who I am.

So stop looking
What you have is
Right in front of you.
If you wanna
If you’re wiling
Time can be rewritten
Forever can be the norm.

So stop looking
For a warning
Take what is yours and
If you wanna
If you’re willing
We can be that which
We keep with us for all time.

Ring

Without a beginning
to mark the start of what could
be the last war - we fought...

Without a villain
to point and blame all our
woes and sorrows - upon...

Those we sought
To protect with our hearts
Those are the ones
The first to drop.

Whether I die now
Or live to give up
The future and the past
are only met by the present.

People see
Exactly what they wanna see.
People need
More than they think they need
We laugh
But we can not be left to crash.
There will be
Consequences for us that last.

Without a beginning
to mark the start of the end we
could be running - for a while...

The only circle we're likely to know.

Whether we die now
Or live to give up
The future and the past
are only met by the present.

The only circle we're likely to know.

Out of the Dark

I like the feel of solid ground
No one said that had to be a sin
But I wonder, should I stand
Even with my knees buckling?

I need a way out
Out of my head and into my chest.
I need to find out
Why I chose you in the first place.

We all wanna feel wanted
Some of us needed. Others need.
But I wonder, if the home
I've built for myself is enough?

I need a way out
Out of the dark and into the light.
I need to find out
If I really can have it all.

I need a way out
Out of my head and into my chest.
I need to find out
Why I chose you in the first place.

Then and only then,
Can I say without
Hesitation....

Home is where my heart is.

I need a way out.
Out of the dark and into the light.
I need to find out
If I can, really... have it all.

Then and only then, will I stand up....

La-La-Life

If you wanna see your name in lights
There's a price you may have to pay
I don't say this as a warning
Just a reality.

Dog eat dog.
Some swallow.
Others chew you up.
Some
just spit you back.

You made it this far - Why stop?!
If you've got dukes - Put 'em up!
You're in for the fight
of your la-la-life.

You made it this far - Go on!
Show 'em who you are - Don't stop!
You can win this fight
It's your la-la-life.

Not everyone reaches the stars
Who does and who won't
Can't be determined
From standing where you are.

Stars shine bright.
Some more than others.
Others go out
Bang!
Like a supernova.

You made it this far - Why stop?!
If you wanna blow - Blow up!
We're in for one
helluva show!

You made it this far - Go on!
Show 'em who you are - Light up!
You can turn this night
into your la-la-life.

I don't know if I'm brave enough to try
But I know, somehow,
Someone out there will....

Give us all a voice.

You made it this far - Why stop?!
If you've got dukes - Put 'em up!
You're in for the fight
of your la-la-life.

You made it this far - Go on!
Show 'em who you are - Don't stop!
You can win this fight
It's your la-la-life.

Give us a voice!!! La-la-life.
Give us a voice!!! La-la-life.

Expecto Partronum!

Why do you need magic in this world?
When you've got us ain't - that all the proof you need?

I'm not saying we'll never
Lose the power to make all - we want real
But we'll never lose the power
To be what we each need.

Expecto Partronum! Expecto Partronum!
I'll take the shape of whatever you want.
Expecto Partronum! Expecto Partronum!
My happiest thought - is yours to own.

Why do you keep looking for an out?
If you wanna go well - by all means, go.

What I don't say to your face
Will haunt me for all time - Should I live
So don't take what power
I still have over myself.

Expecto Partronum! Expecto Partronum!
I'll take the shape of whatever you want.
Expecto Partronum! Expecto Partronum!
My happiest thought - is yours to own.

I've lived for others. I've lived on my own.
Now I wanna live, for us alone.

Close your eyes.... Clear your mind.

Expecto Partronum! Expecto Partronum!
Expecto Partronum! Expecto Partronum!
I'll take the shape of whatever you want.

Expecto Partronum! Expecto Partronum!
Expecto Partronum! Expecto Partronum!
My happiest thought - is yours to own.

into the Night

I'm not trying to pull away
So stop pushing me over
I just think we need some time apart
A minute. A day. An hour.

Sometimes I don't think we see ourselves
Even standing - eye to eye
The mirror holds, too many lies.

So we take to running
Off into the night
Looking for something
Anyone
Who will open their door.
It's easier to run
Than to stay and fight.

I don't want that for you and I
Time is a gift - I'm not sure we've prayed
Had we did we wouldn't say
Things like "Why can't I get a break?"

Sometimes I don't think we see ourselves
Even standing - side by side
Sometimes love holds, too many lies.

So we take to hiding
Behind a laugh and smile
Looking for something
Anyone
Who will smile back.
A lie feels good when
The truth hurts so much.

But that's a risk we have to take;
I'll hurt you if you hurt me.
And when it's time to say "I'm sorry"
I'll be there - waiting.

So let's take to running
Off into the night
Looking for something
Anyone
Who will open their door.
It's easier to run
Than to stay and fight.

But at least,
we'll be side by side.

THE LONG GAME

Karma is a bitch
Everything comes
Biting back.

Heroes fall.
Bad stand tall.
You and I....

Switch spots.

I guess it should be - expected.
I can't go on being - the victim.
We all have our time... Our spot in the sun.

But I'm not asking much
Just mix yours with mine
Though I hear 'em say
Fate plays the long game
I don't wanna wait!
I don't wanna wait!

See you've been missing me
All of the little things
Don't tell me I haven't been
Can't you see me?!

I guess it should be - expected.
I can't go on being - the victim.
I'm just not sure I.... Can be the hero.

Please that's not asking much
Just try and understand
I'm doing the best I can
Try and see through the pain
I don't wanna fight!
I don't wanna fight!

I guess it can't be - helped but
I can't go on being - the villain.
Heroes fall but I... Was born to stand tall.

See that's not asking much
Please just let us be
No need to push fate
It's gonna play its game
Whether I wanna!
Whether we wanna!

Karma is a bitch
Everything comes
Biting back.

Heroes fall.
Bad stand tall.
You and I....

Switch spots.

But I don't wanna be the villain.... Or the hero.

HIT & MISS

I wasn't born with the will to fight
In some ways, I was made a coward
But I've not stopped - for one minute
Given up - on even trying
Because I know not all roads are paved with gold.
But all roads... are worth a follow.

We can never really know
Until we let go
Whether we, hit or not
An arrow only goes so far
Even from, Cupid's bow

I won't compare your life to mine
In a way, we were made for each other.
But others are more - Complicated.
Give it up - Don't even try
The answer gets destroyed the moment it's found.
Whose fault is... Whose fault is that?

We will never really know
Until we let go
Whether we, hit or not
A battle's a battle
There's gonna be a win and loss

Question is, who goes first?
Go on. Take a shot!

Let 'em say you drew first blood.

I wasn't born with the will to fight
But I'll be damned if I don't try.

Because I know not all roads are paved with gold.
But all roads... are worth a follow.

We can never really know
Until we let go
Whether we, hit or not
An arrow only goes so far
Even from, Cupid's bow

We will never really know
Until we let go
Whether we, hit or not
A battle's a battle
There's gonna be a win and loss

Wherever We Go Now

We all walk on eggshells
Broken pieces we, used to need.
Once in a while though
my feet begin to bleed.
And I'm seized by fear
that you will see me.

Looking back
Wishing that
The past could paint me
A different map.

Either born or made - we still act this way.
Neither time nor space - will change such a fate.

How do I wear a mask
I cannot see in, let alone breathe.
I thought painting a smile
might make you love me.
But in painting a smile
I only came to hate myself.

Looking on
Hoping that
Time made a mistake
When it stopped me here.

Either planned or feigned - we still have a fate.
Neither love nor hate - can change that now.

Looking back
We were all
ways heading to this place
Where we go though....

Either planned or feigned - we still have a fate.
Neither love nor hate - can change that now.

Either born or made - we still act this way.
Neither time nor space - will change such a fate.

Wherever - we go now.

Magic Words

Were you asking me to put
Everything I want on hold?
Cuz ya see, I will ya know!
It's all in how you spell it out.

Did you just turn around and pout?
Holding my heart hostage;
See, that, was your first mistake
Pray it will also be your last.

I've been a victim of circumstance before
I promised to myself - no more.
But somewhere, along the way,
I lost the ability to love.

That's where you come in.
That's when you show up.
But there's a line - a fair one
Between doubt and trust.

Are you asking me to put
All I have, and am, in you?
Cuz ya see, I will, maybe!
It's all in how you spell it out

Did you just say "Nevermind"
"it is what is and that's alright"
See, that, was your next mistake
You forgot the magic words

The one that shuts - all the doors
All the pain. All the wars.
Were you a better man...

Perhaps I'd be as well.

But you're asking me to put
Everything I am on hold?
Funny thing, cuz I would!
It's all in how you say the words.

Did you just turn around and pout?
Holding my heart hostage;
See, that, was your last mistake

You forgot the magic words.
Say the magic words!

And, maybe...

You and me,
won't have to pray anymore.
