The Best I Could Do

Original and similar lyrics
Well, I've been searching for a Way to write you down on my list But now I know what it's for It's not a resume or application form No you're not an asterik on my resume no more So now I'll write it down in case you need my help With singing all your words that raise my settled soul And now I know the risk was worth it all the while I just needed a way to see, to see you [Chorus:] And then I wake to find you in my tears Waited to feel you burn inside me all these years That's when I know, I know it all goes back to you 'Cause you are the best that I could do It's hard to find something clear When you're surrounded by clouded minds It's better to know yourself with what little you find All, all on your own than to Find yourself with what little they know So now I'll write it down in case you need my help With singing all your words that raise my settled soul And now I know the risk was worth it all the while I just needed a way to see, to see you [Chorus] One more day One more day to show them One more day One more day to show that I'm not fazed And I won't wait not one more day [Chorus]

The Longer I Run

PETER BRADLEY ADAMS "Leavetaking"
When my blood runs warm with the warm red wine I miss the life that I left behind But when I hear the sound of the blackbirds cry I know I left in the nick of time Well this road I'm on's gonna turn to sand And leave me lost in a far off land So let me ride the wind til I don't look back Forget the life that I almost had If I wander til I die May I know who's hand I'm in If my home I'll never find And let me live again The longer I run Then the less that I find Sellin my soul for a nickel and dime Breakin my heart to keep singing these rhymes And losin again The longer I run Then the less that I find Sellin my soul for a nickel and dime Breakin my heart to keep singing these rhymes And losin again Tell my brother please not to look for me I ain't the man that I used to be But if my savior comes could you let him know I've gone away for to save my soul If I wander til I die May I know who's hand I'm in If my home I'll never find And let me live again The longer I run Then the less that I find Sellin my soul for a nickel and dime Breakin my heart to keep singing these rhymes And losin again The longer I run Then the less that I find Sellin my soul for a nickel and dime Breakin my heart to keep singing these rhymes And losin again Losing again The longer I run I'm losing again Losing again

Jamaica Say You Will

JACKSON BROWNE "Jackson Browne"
Jamaica was the lovely one, I played her well As we lay in the tall grass where the shadows fell Hiding from the children so they would not tell We would stay there 'till her sister rang the evening bell Jamaica, say you will Help me find a way to fill these empty hours Say you will come again tomorrow The daughter of a captain on the rolling seas She would stare across the water from the trees Last time he was home he held her on his knees And said the next time they would sail away just where they pleased Jamaica, say you will Help me find a way to fill these lifeless sails And stay until my ships can find the sea Jamaica was a sweet young one, I loved her true She was a comfort and a mercy through and through Hiding from this world together, next thing I knew We had brought her things down to the bay - what could I do Jamaica, say you will Help me find a way to fill these sails And we will sail until our waters have run dry

Wedding Song

HOWARD JONES "People"
I can see you On your wedding day With the one you love To share the way A life ahead of you Youth left behind Go out and make yourself Some memories Dispair and pleasure Faced at every turn And there's children To save from harm's way Three thousand doorways Reveal a thousand more Treasure each moment Forever more I promise to love you and do my best for you I need you to help me to find my strength Walk with me all through my life My lover my husband my wife Share this journey with me Write this story with me Life comes and it will go And there's no time to sit and watch the grass grow When we are old and grey you know we'll say We went and made ourselves some memories We're starting our life We're starting together now I need you to help me to find my strength Walk with me all through my life My lover my husband my wife Share this journey with me Write this story with me

The Reason I Sing

JIMMY NEEDHAM "Nightlights"
If its just to top a song chart To feed the kids and get a bigger car The skies already have a lot of stars And they all sing Your name And if I'm here to write a #1 To get a gold or maybe platinum Make me a singer who is unsung Cuz You won't share fame Cuz even accolades someday will fade away Oh just like me Yes everything but You, yeah And many years from now it won't matter How I write the rhymes I do, yeah Help me get back to the reason I sing for You I'm always looking for the limelight To dim my house and make the stages bright Compared to You I'm just a night light Against the blazing sun I enter rooms and hope they notice me To fill my social insecurities I'm asking if there's any hope for me Cuz there is room for only one Cuz even accolades someday will fade away Oh just like me Yes everything but You, yeah And many years from now it won't matter How I write the rhymes I do, yeah Help me get back to the reason I sing for You Why are we so convinced a bigger audience Is simply common sense to have? Maybe success is measured best By nothing less then our obedience So if I'm destined for a small stage The small crowds and the small pay Then maybe even in a small way I can bring You fame Cuz even accolades someday will fade away Oh just like me Yes everything but You, yeah And many years from now it won't matter How I write the rhymes I do, yeah Help me get back to the reason I sing for You Help me get back to the reason I sing for You

In The Same Room

JIMMY EAT WORLD "Static Prevails"
Fingers in, listen what voices say. you always wrote for me, ego. risk worth taking risk worth leaving. seems i'm still afraid to promise. too big to stop too big to hold on to. trade up for the fast ride. trade your friends. train passes us. pulling your teeth you push away. cancel plans, cancel them all. check your breath for cold and hold on. please hold on. no pictures left to burn good-bye to. the smell of ash and white walls blank. phase passes us. horizontal lines and button up. the drawers of paper all say one thing. like music boxes custom made. time passes us. don't move. be still. be silent.
