This War Is Over

"take off my shield
carry my sword
i won’t need it anymore
find my a sky
give me my wings
frozen and broken but free

CHORUS:

tell them i’m all right
i’m coming home
tell them i’m all right
i am alone
this was is over
i’m coming home

take off my shame
bury it low
i won’t need it anymore
find me the sun
give me it whole
melt all the chains in my soul

CHORUS

take off my pain
carry me slow
i won’t fight here anymore

CHORUS

Touch And Go

"In a room full of silver shadows
A customary kiss goodnight
And it slips through your tightened shoulders
It reaches your heart and dies

And the sadness is bound to kill me
But I’m too far away to care
And I’d just like to know if you will
Oh could I even get there

Oh
Back to the touch and go
When not a soul could know
When your lovin’ was slow
We lived every night for the touch and go

Now there’s no one in the night to blame you
No one in your glasses of wine
I never won I only tamed you
Foolishly I called you mine
And your pacing in your cage every morning
And you rattle your chains every night
And you stare past the bars never knowing
With nothing left to put up a fight

Oh
Then we would touch and go
When not a soul could know
Oh your lovin’ was slow
And we lived every night for the touch
Oh I remember
The to...

Ready To Love

"When I look at you all I can see
Is the shadow of your life
You see this stage is a mirror
You can see me
But I can’t see past its light
Lovers have tried to reach down inside
I only said that they were wrong
But when all I’ve got left is me and my pride
I realize you can’t buy love with a song

So somebody take me out of the night
Show me what life is made of
Won’t somebody reach inside of my heart
I think that I’m ready to love
I think that I’m ready to love
I feel like I’m ready to love

Well a lesson that’s learned too late is a crime
I can’t stand the pain of what could have been
Oh it’s such a shame there’s no one to blame
But no one knows what I have seen
What do you see when you look at me
Do I really seem so far away
But the song will go on
And you will applaud
And look at me I’ll just keep singing

Som...

Must Be Crazy For Me

"You tell me not to call you up
Cause it ties you down
Don’t tell your friends
You’ve been hangin’ round
You must be crazy for me

You say you’ll see me once or twice
Every week or two
There’s more important things
That you’ve got to do
You must be crazy for me

CHORUS:
Cause when I kissed you last night
In my own backyard
You ran so fast
And you fought so hard
You must be crazy for me
You must be crazy for me

You don’t like my hair
You don’t like my car
You don’t like my friends
You met at the bar
You must be crazy for me

I see you shake your head
And you roll your eyes
Your firm remark
To remove my thigh
You must be crazy for me

(CHORUS)

Do not expect you to wait
Do not expect you to phone
Do not expect anything
When I catch you alone
You must be crazy for me

(CHORUS)
