I look out my window Another day of ice and snow And I think about this mess I'm in And this love I used to know And these days have grown so cold I just wanna warm my bones In the morning sun There comes a day when the pain becomes your lover And on that day you'll wanna Float Away Forever But see, ya never really know With all the lies that you are told So keep your chin up to the sky And stray from sticks and stones Cuz we'll all be goin home Where we can rest our achin bones In the morning sun Each day I wake to another painful reminder That I should just float away from this place forever Come with and we'll float up to the sun We'll leave everything in the dust Take my hand and we'll go together There's no keepin our feet here on the ground Lets kiss up in the clouds Take my hand and we'll go together Baby, hold on tight and we'll go together We'll Float Away Forever Come with me and we'll float up to the sun In a rocket made of love Take my hand and we'll go together There's no keepin our feet here on the ground Nothin holdin us down Take my hand and we'll go together Baby, hold on tight and we'll go together We'll Float Away Forever Float Away Forever

I wish I knew How to be more like you I tried bein me, but it just wouldn't do I wish I knew All the right words to say I wish I knew the rules to the game Wish I Knew I wish I knew How you got to be so cool I tried bein me, and you'd call me a fool I wish I knew Back in the day Mighta saved myself some heartache and pain Wish I Knew Wish I Knew Who was who In this world so cruel Wish I Knew Wish I Knew Oh, I wish I Knew I'm bettin you do too I Wish I Knew Wish I Knew Who was who In this world so cruel Wish I Knew Wish I Knew Oh, I wish I Knew I wish I'd a known Wish I'd a known back then That I would lose it all in the end... Wish I Knew Wish I Knew Who was who In this world so cruel Wish I Knew Wish I Knew Oh, I wish I Knew Wish I Knew Who was who In this world so cruel Wish I Knew Wish I Knew Oh, I wish I Knew I'm bettin you do too You wish you knew We wish knew I wish Knew

We're all fallin apart Right from the start Our bodies decay Day By Destin Day So what's there to say? We're all driftin away Try as you may Day By Destin Day we sigh Day By Destin Day cry Day By Destin Day we try By and by The hope at my door Doesn't knock anymore I'm tired and sore Day By Destin Day Forget who you know Like the wind they will blow Out of our lives Day By Destin Day we sigh Day By Destin Day we cry Day By Destin Day we try By and by Day By Destin Day It's the unbearable agony This life of a hangin tree Wrapped around me Day By Destin Day My roots they lay Under the clay Buried away Forever they will stay Day By Destin Day

This is who I am This is what I've become Somewhere down the line Somethin went wrong There's been lies I've bought And lots of battles fought I still don't know who I am Or where I belong Even with all the ones that I've come to know It's like, in my head I'm Never Not Alone There's been things I've seen There's been things that I've done Things I wouldn't wish upon anyone Never been more lost With no place to run My absence of faith Is like a loaded gun I try to swim but I sink like a stone In my head, I'm Never Not Alone Never Not Alone There's a graveyard beneath my skin Never Not Alone Never Not Alone There's memories and images Never Not Alone Endlessly I wander through the dark I tried to build a fire Without any spark It's cold out here Frozen in fear It aches inside my bones In my head Never Not Alone In my head Never Not Alone In my head Never Not Alone

You don't know me And Brother, I don't know you We don't know what each other's been through Let's get together Share some stories And share a bottle of relief And escape from it all Compare our scars And clean out the Wounds Clean out the Wounds... You don't know me And Sister, I don't know you The look on your face says ya feel it too Let's get together Sit by the fire And warm our achin bones And forget about it all Compare our scars And clean out the Wounds Clean out the Wounds... We're all just Wounded people Lost in our Wounded ways Walkin through this Wounded world We're all Wounded today No, There's nothin to fear We're all Wounded here No, There's nothin to fear We're all Wounded here No, There's nothin to fear We're all Wounded here No, There's nothin to fear We're all Wounded here We're all just Wounded people Lost in our Wounded ways Walkin through this Wounded world We're all Wounded today We're all just Wounded people Lost in our Wounded ways Walkin through this Wounded world We're all Wounded today This world's a Wounded place

We used to love to make a wish on a shooting star I've seen three tonight so far They always make me feel so small now Imagine life, like a grain of sand Just driftin on down a broken hourglass now So why do we pretend to know? Cuz everybody knows But nobody knows And everybody learns Still nobody grows and It's easy for me to be confused Cuz everybody sees but no ones guilty And everybody sat there watching their TV's while These eyes have been watchin leaves on these trees Just Waitin' For A Breeze to life me up So far away, come take me to A place where I can think A place where there is no confusion or Planes crashin down out the big, blue sky A place where nobody cries

"Do what I say, Don't do what I do" I've had lots a time To think those lines through Those were the words That you spoke to me I'm older now I think I see whatcha mean Think I see what you mean "Do what I say, Don't do what I do" All I ever wanted Was the truth Those were the words Through the years haunted me I'm older now I think I see whatcha mean Think I see what you mean "Do what I say kid, don't ya dare do what I do" Do what I say kid, and this life will be good to you This world can take a good man, Take a good man and make him mean And I don't want my daughter, Growin up feelin like me, no But still, I find myself sayin the same thing too... "Do as I say kid, Not As I Do" "Do as I say kid, Not As I Do" Not As I Do

Just past the waves, beyond the horizon Another friend of mine dyin It's so hard for me to keep on smilin With one more Mother cryin Lord, give me the strength to find my way I've tried a hundred times But it's still the same Tell me what we should do to ease the pain To ease the brain This has been One Sick Summer And my head is screamin fire Everything's a blur... One Sick Summer This has been One Sick Summer One I know I'll never forget Left me punctured... One Sick Summer One Sick Summer

What do ya do? Where do ya go? When you're all alone, And you're losin control The sun, it won't shine It's always too cold The ones that you think you know, You never really know And ya feel nothin at all, but the sting... That Ol' Familiar Sting I'd rather walk alone Through the dirt and the snow Then be someone's puppet On a string in this show I'm tired of givin up I'm tired of givin in I just wanna be myself Before the end begins And there's nothin left at all Nothing left at all, but the sting... That Ol' Familiar Sting Ol' Familiar An Ol' Familiar Sting lurks in my bones And it never leaves me alone Ol' Familiar Sting It Haunts me every day, in every single way Haunts me the most when I try to sleep Ol' Familiar Sting Ol' Familiar Ol' Familiar Sting Ol' Familiar That Ol' Familiar Sting

I went out walkin in the night Neath them lonely city lights Nobody by my side I'm just a Sad & Lonely Guy When I look up at the sky Them ol stars just make me cry That ol moon up in the sky Knows I'm a Sad & Lonely Guy I'm just a Sad & Lonely Guy As I'm walkin through the night All I seem to do is cry Got no one to make me smile I'm just a Sad & Lonely Guy Got no one to hold me tight Neath the starry dark sky All the cars just pass me by I'm just a Sad & Lonely Guy I'm just a Sad & Lonely Guy Walkin til the sunrise With them tears in my eyes Bid farewell to the night I'm just a Sad & Lonely Guy Won't nobody hold me tight Just one cold and lonely night Nobody makes me feel alright I'm just a Sad & Lonely Guy I'm just a Sad & Lonely Guy
