Where the Highway Ends
 
Little girl I gotta say
You're so unusual, you
Got lost in a sea of faithlessness
And the waves keep on comin' through
 
And where the highway ends
And where the new dawn breaks
I have seen the promised land
No longer must you wait
No longer must you wait
 
Brother oh brother
So many battles fought through time
Standing so closely beside you
Who knows where the days new danger lies
 
And where there's a lending hand
Your blood runs holy in my veins
Searching for the promised land
No longer must we wait
No longer must we wait
 
The bye and bye, how the time does fly
The season changes and the legend dies
Left alone to try a millions times
Then there you are right by my side
 
Once over the days grow longer
The stars in the sky are born anew in faith
The highways end is growing closer
No longer must I wait
No longer must I wait
 
Come On Out (and Play)

Don’t tell me that it’s over
Don’t tell me that you don’t care
You can’t fool me with tough talk
Or a blank stare
So what if you missed the summer
And the winter just won’t end
You can’t stay inside all your life
Or get stuck playing pretend
 
Don’t let your tears wash away to sea
Don’t forget you’re alive, just be
 
Come on out and play
Come on out and play
Don’t go hiding that pretty face
Hiding away won’t keep the pain at bay
So come on out and play
Come on out and play
Feel that sun upon your face
Come on out and play
 
Don’t tell me that it’s nothing
Or that it no longer hurts you
I can see in your eyes something darker inside
I ain’t no fool
Don’t listen to those sad songs
Comfort won’t come from lust
We’re both holding out something better
Darlin’ it’s heaven or bust
 
Don’t let your tears wash away to sea
Don’t forget you’re alive, just be
 
Come on out and play
Come on out and play
Don’t you go hiding away
Tomorrow can be a better yesterday
So come on out and play
Come on out and play
Feel that sun upon your face
Come on out and play
 
Come on out and play
Come on out and play
Tomorrow can be a better yesterday
Get out of your own way
Come on out and play
Come on out and play
Don’t go hiding that pretty face
Hiding away won’t keep the pain at bay
 
Come on out and play
Come on out and play
Don’t you go hiding away
Tomorrow can be a better yesterday
So come on out and play
Come on out and play
What do ya say
Won’t you come on out, come on out and…
 
The Losin' Kind

Well you can't sleep at night in a cold empty bed
When you get up in the morning your eyes are half dead
When will all your pain and suffering vanish into the air
So when the lights go out you can close your eyes like I'm there
 
Well don't scream in the valley
Don't bathe in the sea
Don't ever think for one moment
You'd ever be without me
And don't think I'm too far behind
Even something good comes to the losin' kind
 
When you get up in the morning and have something to eat
Get ready for work and jump in the drivers seat
Then you look in the mirror, you shy and turn away
And you can't help but run back to me at the end of each day
 
Don't try and take on the mountains
When you can't make it up the hill
Don't try and take on the world
When you don't know which illusion's real
And don't forget about the ties that bind
Cause something better's comin' to the losin' kind...
 
Don't worry darlin' it's gonna be alright
Don't worry little girl, yeah, we'll make it through the night
You look at me sometimes with such hurt in your eyes
And I don't ask why, you come to me when you cry
 
You come home in the evening, the house is bare
Waiting and waiting to come home to somebody who cares
Someone that brings light into your life, to be happy when you're home
Cause a broken family is just as good as bein' alone
 
Don't forget to bring water to the desert
Don't be counting on the rain
Remember what it felt like
When you fell in love with me again
A love that renews it's self a million times
Cause the grass is always greener for the losin' kind
Even something good comes to the losin’ kind
Something better’s comin’ around to the losin’ kind
Baby you and me, we’re the losin’ kind
 
 Isabella 

Tonight the stars are burnin’ bright
As we lie here in wait
The night alive with laughter
Two lovers waiting in vain
Darling what's the use
Of us saying goodnight
The dream only comes alive
When out goes the lights
 
Isabella, my principassa
That darkness you’ve come to know only exists in your mind
Isabella, my principassa
The dreams will come, the pain will ease with time
 
Now dreams are a funny thing
So many you'll never reach
So many that escapes us
Some we so desperately need
The world may seem against you
And the world's by your side
The dreams that matter never slip away
If your heart can hold on tight
 
Isabella, my principassa
Even angels grow tired and weary every now and then
Isabella, my principassa
In your love I’ve been born again
 
The evenings light becomes the dawn of tomorrow
The winds tonight will last through the pain and the sorrow
As our worlds collide like an ocean wave crashing onto the shore
 
Naked and ashamed
With the darkness over head
They may keep us down
But we ain't out yet
So don't be afraid to dream
For I'll be here by your side
Reach for the heavens darlin'
Tomorrow the sun will rise
 
Isabella, my principassa
That darkness you’ve come to know only exists in your mind
Isabella, my principassa
The dreams will come, the pain will ease with time
Isabella, my principassa
Even angels grow tired and weary every now and then
Isabella, my principassa
In our love we have been born again

Butterfly

Yeah once I was young, once I was naive
Once I was searching for something special inside of me
I was waiting in vain, I was waiting on a prayer
Suddenly time stopped and you were there

My butterfly, butterfly, my butterfly, butterfly

Back in high school, Jenny was the girl
The girl with that smile, that could stop the whole damn world
Well I was young, searching for livin' proof
My heart pounded as you came into the room

Like a butterfly, butterfly, my butterfly, butterfly

Lately I feel, like I've got a grasp
Ain't worried about my future, and I'm done livin' in the past
Out of the air, the butterfly lands on my hand
And I promised to love you the best that I can

My butterfly, butterfly, my butterfly, butterfly

 It Ain't Easy
 
It ain't easy to be miserable
It ain't easy to see evil inside yourself
It ain't easy to be angry at the world
It ain't easy to have faith in nothing at all
 
Save me from the pain I seek
Drain me of the misery
Find me a little dignity
The walls are closin' in
 
It ain't easy to deny my lungs air
It ain't easy to smile and cry
It ain't easy to pretend that I care
It ain't so easy to take your own life
 
Save me from the pain I seek
Drain me of the misery
Find me a little dignity
The walls are closin' in
 
It ain't easy to enjoy the daylight
It ain't easy to for me to love who I am
It ain't easy to fix the ties that bind
It ain't easy to pretend that I don't love you damn it
 
Save me from the pain I seek
Drain me of the misery
Find me a little dignity
The walls, the walls
 
Save me from the pain I seek
Drain me of the misery
Find me a little dignity
The walls are closin' in
 
I Am Not


You whisper to me like a small rolling wave
And you tell me that your soul my love can save
Are there answers to why you wish me to behave
You tell me of the promise don't you know heaven’s just a darkened cave
 
I am not a saint
Nor by any means a man condemned
I just feel like nothing remains
Of me when your gone, and life goes on
 
Are you waiting for Jesus, are you wishing upon a star
Are you searching for salvation amongst your bloody scars
Are you thinking of reason to why we are who we say we are
You spend your life tryin’ to measure the distance,
Until you find out one day that heaven is just too far

I am not your hero
And I can't be the man you want me to be
I can’t walk no line
I can’t raise you up from your knees
I have lost my faith
I’ve become ruled by doubt and fear
But the only time I'm not scared, darlin'
Is when I feel you near
 
Is this a failure, was this world just another idea on a list
Are we truly in devoted sweetie, or just kidding ourselves about this
From night time comes daylight, as the waves create an ocean mist
I lose you in the confusion, but the breeze still carries your kiss
 
I am not your hero
I won’t be risking my life on these sands
And I am not your savior 
I don’t have the stars under my command
Take this moment, and come close
Whisper to me you understand
That beneath this hollowed skin,
Somewhere, beats the heart of just a man
 
My Bed Is Empty

Here I stand
Just another broken man
I walk this lonely providence
The New Jersey sands
I've been searching
For some kind of faith in you
As the snow falls
From a perfect sky of blue
 
My bed is empty
Cause you're not here
My heart is heavy
I need to feel your near, feel you near
 
I got a broken heart
That used to beat for you
I used to have
A place that I could run to
I come home from work
Just a few hours late
And you're sitting on the bed
With your make up running down your face
 
My bed is empty
Cause you're not here
My heart is heavy
I need to feel your near, feel you near
 
I miss the laugh that brightened the room
And the warmth of your holy blood
I miss the way you used to hold me
And the tenderness of your love
I need to feel the moistness of your lips
And the calm your touch can bring
I need to feel the softness of your skin
When you wrap yourself around me
 
My bed is empty
Cause you're not here
My heart is heavy
I need to feel your near, feel you near
 
My bed is empty
My bed is empty
My bed is empty
 
Goodbye Love
 
Summer, just around the corner
Nature is reborn from the dirt
A summer, to share with another
Our orphaned ashes returned to the Earth
As I lay me down to sleep
I pray my heart you will keep
 
Goodbye, goodbye my love
Goodbye love, good luck
Goodbye, goodbye my love
Goodbye love, my love
 
Your suicide, has played out in my mind
Our sins and my finger print on the blade
On every kiss, I feel the shame from it
And now blood and bone is all that remains
As I lay me down to sleep
I pray my heart you will keep
 
Goodbye, goodbye my love
Goodbye love, good luck
Goodbye, goodbye my love
Goodbye love, my love
 
As I lay me down to sleep
I pray my heart you will keep
 
Goodbye, goodbye my love
Goodbye love, good luck
Goodbye, goodbye my love
Goodbye love, my love
 
Goodbye, goodbye my love
Goodbye love, good luck
Goodbye, goodbye my love
Goodbye love, my love
 
Goodbye, goodbye my love
Goodbye love, good luck
Goodbye, goodbye my love
Goodbye love, my love
