FOOL IN ME

Take a moment and breathe it in
Take a moment, confess my sin
It's still beautiful, yeah, it's still beautiful
You got the fool in me...
You got me on my knees... begging please
Let it be

In all the beauty and all the pain, can't say I regret a thing
I can finally feel the peace washing over me
You got the fool in me...
I'm finally setting free
fools like me

I toss and I turn for this road I have burned
But there's something I can't escape
All the things in your life that you want but you have

You can always run,
But there's still something in the way that your eyes meet mine...

THE BITTER END

What makes a man need a woman on her knees?
You pound your chest so you can get what you please,
Lock the door, find her sick on the floor and you're ready to go,
Better keep this between you and me, so no one will know,

Well I'm a bit angry, and I'm a bit harder now I know
But I'm not giving up my soul,
And I'll defend it
To the bitter end,

What makes a man need to put his woman down?
Are you scared to death that she won't like what she's found?
Seperate, and alienate her and you muffle her voice,
It's just you and me now, so don't bother to make any noise,

Well I'm a bit angry, and I'm a bit harder now I know
But I'm not giving up my soul,
And I'll defend it
To the bitter end,
My freedom is the only thing I know,
And I'll defend it
To the bitter end...

LOVE + MUSIC

Hold her and kiss her
Guess that it feels good for now,
But music is better -
Music is safer somehow,

'Cause it'll never leave you, and it'll never die
It won't betray you, and it'll never lie,
You can control it, and it can be made,
It's just like water, fluid in every way,
Isn't it safer than falling in love?

Feel her soul,
And tell her there's no one quite like her,
But music is better,
Music is safer now I know,

'Cause it'll never leave you, and it'll never die
It won't betray you, and it'll never lie,
You can control it, and it can be made,
It's just like water, fluid in every way,
Isn't it safe? Isn't it safe?
Isn't it safer than falling in love?
 

FORGET THE GLOOM

Saw you last night, you were beautiful,
So healthy and strong,
You held your people as the world came tumbling down,
And I was there...

Trying to find forgiveness here on a Sunday afternoon,
Some of us shine so brightly, we tend to get confused,
Can I confess, my soul's a mess

Did you make your mind up darling?
Or will I see you again?
But dreams are sweeter than reality,
What I needed to, I have said,

Trying to find forgiveness here on a Sunday afternoon,
Some of us shine so brightly, we tend to get confused,
Can I confess, my soul's a mess

And if you left this place, did you find somewhere you fit?
Does it finally make sense, and do you shine for them?

Trying to find forgiveness here on a Sunday afternoon,
Some of us shine so brightly, we tend to get confused,
Can I confess, my soul's a mess

Well it looks like heaven,
but this hell is what you're looking for,
And they smile so sweetly
Even as they hold you to the floor,

Oh well -
You wanted something sweeter?
 

YOUNG LOVERS

I am alone, I am not lonely,
They fire and the peace, they consume me,
I am listening to the sound...

I am listening to the sound of young lovers
Caught up in their ways,
I fear to say
There will be hell to pay,
Young Lovers
With so much left to say,
I hesitate,
I have myself to blame...

Some trade passion for comfort,
But something inside will not let her
I am listening to the sound...

I am listening to the sound of young lovers
Caught up in their ways,
I fear to say
There will be hell to pay,
Young Lovers
With so much left to say,
I hesitate,
I have myself to blame...
