TOPS OF TREES (YOU DON'T KNOW ME)

 

[I] used to tell stories tall as trees, runnin' through weeds that wanna be as tall as me,

'cause nothing in this world is free, if not now, then in time, baby, you will see 'cause..

 

You don't know me, you don't know me,

you don't know me, you don't know me

 

[I've] Got dreams as far as you can see, I'm gonna climb all the mountains you would ski,

'cause nothing in this world is free, if not now, then in time, baby, you will see

 

You don't know me, you don't know me,

No no no no no no no

you don't know me, you don't know me

I be runnin' on the tops of trees  x2

 

[Musical Break]

 

You don't know me, you don't know me,

No no no no no no no

you don't know me, you don't know me

I be runnin' on the tops of trees  x2

 

Woo ooh, woo ooh, woo ooh.

 

 

MATTER OF TIME

 

Back and forth for so long, you know I'm waiting for you,

It's just a matter of time,

You've been gone for so long, I'm goin' crazy for you,

It's just a matter of time.

 

Ooh ooh ooh x2

 

Erase your mind in time we'll all just call it quits anyway, anyway,

You the table, I the legs that up and walked away, you can't stand to stay,

You can't stand to stay, You can't stand to stay,

Your legs have gone away,

I'm goin' crazy for you..

 

[Musical Break]

 

Ooh, ooh, ooh x2

 

Rain rain go away, come again another day,

Rain rain go away, come again another day,

Rain rain go away, come again another day,

Rain rain go away, come again another day.

 

I'm goin' crazy for... You.

 

 

THE CALM

 

[Rain falling]

 

Tree shakes when the wind blows, and I just shake,

Tree shakes when the wind blows, and I can't make,

Tree shakes when the wind blows, and I just shake,

Tree shakes when the wind blows, and I can't make,

 

Tree shakes when the wind blows, and I just shake,

{Nobody knows it but me/Nobody noticed but me}

Tree shakes when the wind blows, and I can't make,

{A Sooooouuund}

Tree shakes when the wind blows, and I just shake,

{Nobody knows it but me/Nobody noticed but me}

Tree shakes when the wind blows, and I can't make,

{Nobody knows it but me/Nobody noticed but me}  {A Sooooouuund}

Tree shakes when the wind blows, and I just shake,

{Nobody knows it but me/Nobody noticed but me}

Tree shakes when the wind blows, and I can't make,

{A Sooooouuund}

Tree shakes when the wind blows, and I just shake,

{Nobody knows it but me/Nobody noticed but me}

Tree shakes when the wind blows, and I can't make,

 {Nobody knows it but me/Nobody noticed but me}                     

  {A Sooooouuund}                       {Nobody knows it but me/Nobody noticed but me}

 

[Fade to Black]

 

 

THE STORM

 

Well I've seen nothing but rain for the past week, 

I'm wonderin' if it'll slow down,

And I've seen nothin' but lightning flashing,

but i'll shine brighter than they will,

and I've heard nothin' but thunder crashin',

and i'll scream louder than storm clouds.

 

I do this all the time, I'm cloudin' up these sunny skies,

I do this all the time, I'm cloudin' up these sunny skies.

 

Well I've seen nothin' but rain for the past week, 

I'm wonderin' if it'll slow down,

And I've seen nothin' but lightning flashing,

and i'll shine brighter than they will,

and I've heard nothin' but thunder crashin',

and i'll scream louder than storm clouds.

 

I do this all the time, I'm cloudin' up these sunny skies,

I do this all the time, I'm cloudin' up these sunny skies.

 

 

Go go go go go go gooooooooo... 

 

 

NEW HORIZONS

 

A new horizon, awakened again,

Can't find a reason, to wanna fit in,

But you can't fight it, you throw me around,

But I'll be landin', with my feet on the ground,

 

I never anticipated, that being sober was overrated,

So let's do it again, let's do it again.

 

My past is preachin, about changin' my pace,

My pastor's preachin', about savin' my faith,

Don't need salvation, I'm just tryin' to get by,

Don't need vacation, cause I'm burnin' to fly,

 

I never anticipated, that being sober was overrated,

So let's do it again,

Never anticipated, that being sober was overrated,

so let's do it again.

 

These faces, never gonna go away,

High speed chase is, how I'm gonna get away,

These faces, never gonna go away,

High speed chase is, how I'm gonna get away,

How I'm gonna get away, How I'm gonna get away, 

How I'm gonna get away, How I'm gonna get away, 

How I'm gonna get away, How I'm gonna get away, 

How I'm gonna get away, How I'm gonna get away.

 

 

 

HOW BOUT THAT

 

You said that you're never gonna fall in love with me,

But not I got you lyin' next to me,

How bout that.

 

You said that I'll never get a gun that easily,

now you wanna plan the robbery,

How bout that.

 

You said that we could never be, but now you're right outside my window,

You said that we could never be, but now you're right outside my window,

How bout that.

 

You said that you wanna be a veterinerian, 

I just wanna hang out with my friends,

How Bout that.

 

You said that Im never gonna amount to anything,

Now I'm living like a king,

How bout that.

 

You said that we could never be, but now you're right outside my window,

You said that we could never be, but now you're right outside my window,

How bout that.

 

Cause when I look into your eyes, I know just where I stand with you,

Cause when I look into your eyes, I know just where I stand with you.

 

 

ALREADY HOME

 

If you've wished a wish against your will,

If by the end you never got your fill, 

If you can read and write, but you can't read right from wrong,

If you hear the words that I sing in my song,

Then I say, go go go! I'm beggin' you please,

Go away and live in the trees, 

And she said, no no no! There's nowhere to roam,

Baby boy you see, 

I'm already Home.

You were just what I was missing.

 

Could've been anything but what you are,

Tried to get away but you couldn't get far,

Could've been anything but what you are,

Tried to get away but you couldn't get far,

 

Welcome to the rest of your life.

Welcome to the rest of your life.

Welcome to the rest of your life.

Welcome to the rest of your life.

 

[Welcome to the rest of your life.]

[Welcome to the rest of your life.]

[Welcome to the rest of your life.]

[Welcome to the rest of your life.]

 

You could've been anything but what you are.

 

 

 

OCEANS AND SKIES

 

Well I've been thinkin' lots about you baby,

Say you're callin', got me thinkin' maybe, 

Instead of being a face in the crowd,

I'm thinkin' I'll call your name out loud,

I promise none of this will be easy,

Just say you'll do your best to please me,

And I'll do the same and you'll squeeze me,

Hey baby this could go quite easy.

 

Cause we're just people you and I, I love you oceans, moons, and skies,

We're just tryin' to survive, in this crazy mixed up world, oh my,

We're just people you and me, I love you skies and moons and seas,

We're just tryin to beleive, in this crazy mixed up world, it's a dream,

Cause we're just people you and I, I love you oceans, moons, and skies,

We're just tryin' to survive, in this crazy mixed up world, we get high,

Oh we get high..

 

[Musical Break]

 

Cause we're just people you and I, I love you oceans, moons, and skies,

We're just tryin' to survive, in this crazy mixed up world, oh my,

We're just people you and me, I love you skies and moons and seas,

We're just tryin' to believe, in this crazy mixed up world, it's a dream,

Cause we're just people you and I, I love you oceans, moons, and skies,

We're just tryin' to survive, in this crazy mixed up world, we get high,

Oh we get high..

 

As I lie, awake, living in a fit of dreams,

I must partake, as weather vane as it may seem,

So don't mistake the scene.

 

 

 

TOUGH

 

When the goin' gets tough, well the tough get goin',

When the goin' gets tough, shine your light on me,

When the river gets rough, well the river gets flowin'

When the river gets rough, you can count on me,

When the goin' gets tough, well the tough get goin',

When the goin' gets tough, shine your light on me.

 

It's been this way for weeks,

And I can't see and end in this for you, love, 

An end in this for me.

 

It's been this way for weeks,

And I can't see and end in this for you, love, 

An end in this for me.

 

When the goin' gets tough, well the tough get goin',

When the goin' gets tough, shine your light on me,

When the goin' gets tough, well the tough get goin',

When the goin' gets tough, shine your light on me.

 

 

AUTOGRAPHS

 

Don't go askin' questions you know the answer to,

I won't answer you.

Don't go pullin', don't go pullin' strings you think you know,

That was long ago, and I'm not that anymore.

 

Cause I dream of signing autographs, and, hear your voice on phonograph,

Cause memories are photographic, some of which are pornographic,

Lie in fields of old in pasture, dream of how we'll die of laughter,

Live our lives forever after, a great disaster,

 

Lie in fields of old, as we die laughing,

Turn those fields to gold, and die of laughter,

Lie in fields of old, as we die laughing,

Turn those fields to gold, and die of laughter,

And die of laughter.

 

Ooooooh x2

 

You've been pullin' my string out slowly, but I'm never giving up,

Never givin', ne never givin' up,

You've been pullin' my string out slowly, and I've had about enough,

Never givin', ne never givin' up,

You've been pullin' my string out slowly, and you need to sew me up,

Never givin', ne never givin' up,

You've been pullin' my string out slowly, but I'm never givin' up,

Never givin', ne never givin' up.
