Knocking on the door on a rainy afternoon Thursdays always seem to come around so soon I could tell from the look on your face that it's getting to ya You wanna be strong but you're worried about the future A sunny day is on its way again The clouds of fear will start to clear, my friend These are troubled times indeed But you got everything you need So hold on for the sunny days ahead Saw a man I hadn't seen in years Wasn't sure if he still lived 'round here He said the people in this town have all gone crazy Human nature never ceases to amaze me A sunny day is on its way again The clouds of fear will start to clear, my friend These are troubled times indeed But you got everything you need So hold on for the sunny days ahead A sunny day is on its way again The clouds of fear will start to clear, my friend These are troubled times indeed But you got everything you need So hold on for the sunny days ahead A sunny day is on its way again The clouds of fear will start to clear, my friend These are troubled times indeed But you got everything you need So hold on for the sunny days ahead

Little hands, little cough What is this love? So much pain, so much joy We can avoid Closed eyes, the darkness rises from the grave Breath deep the feeling reaches up from the past Stare straight til it goes away Boats drifting current strong, Peace in our minds Gains balanced, ego crushed However it falls Closed eyes, the darkness rises from the grave Breath deep the feeling reaches up from the past Stare straight til it goes away

Feels like we got lightyears Between you and me From my lonely corner Working up my nerve Do I dare Do I make a move and come on over Do you see me Am I there in your stars Am I there in the night Do you want me Am I there in your stars Don’t leave me floating in space I can't get through to you Gravity it keeps me in my place I’m your man on the moon Running down the clock Weigh the cost Missing out vs missing nothing Only one way out past of the fear Past the shaking hands and past the blushing Do you know me? I can see how you glow Like the earth on the rise Do you want me? Am I somewhere in your skies Do you see me Am I there in your stars Am I there in the night Do you want me Am I there in your stars Don’t leave me floating in space I can't get through to you Gravity it keeps me in my place I’m your man on the moon

Sitting in the backseat, 4 years old, Watching the clouds go by, Daddy's in the front with the radio on, Singing loud to every line, Now she's all grown with car of her own, Singing loud to every tune, Handed her the keys and waved goodbye, They always grow up too soon She's moving forward, Starting a brand new life, I'm always here for her, But I know she'll be just fine, She's moving forward, She's moving forward Used to be afraid of the boys at school, Never gave them a chance, Daddy always said take your time, When it comes to romance, Walking down the aisle dressed in white, Waiting for a diamond ring, Daddy's letting go of his little girl, She's ready for anything She's moving forward, Starting a brand new life, I'm always here for her, But I know she'll be just fine, She's moving forward, She's moving forward

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? I never thought that you would be with someone like me I'm just a poor boy, from a poor family Scrimping and saving, trying my best to succeed I don't have much to give, but you can count on me We'll build our future however we want it to be I must be dreaming, it's too good to be true And life is never quite what it seems Can't shake the feeling, I'm still thinking of you But I'm forever stuck in between In my dreams, I'm your king and you're my queen I saw you yesterday, at the city park And now I'm stuck at home pacing around in the dark I don't know what to say, but in reality Anyway the wind blows it doesn't really matter to me Why can't we give love, just another chance The night is getting late and this is our last dance I must be dreaming, it's too good to be true And life is never quite what it seems Can't shake the feeling, I'm still thinking of you But I'm forever stuck in between In my dreams, I'm your king and you're my queen

When I’m with you my world starts to explode, I get to be the freak I am, We’ve known each other for years now, and I know, You’ll stand with me until I’m old, You free me, just get me, You free me, my remedy, This is who we are This is who we are Remember all the secrets that we share, One day we’ll publish them in a book, And all the rules we broke, I have to say, I really miss those times, You free me, just get me, You free me, my remedy, This is who we are This is who we are

I just got picked last in gym class, My crush was laughing from the stands, Yesterday I asked her to the Valentine's dance, She claimed she already made plans The swervy courage of the underdog, Never saw it coming, never saw it coming, Waiting in line til he's number one, His little heart is thumping, little heart is thumping Captain sprained his ankle now I got my chance, Laced up my kicks, "Coach put me in," Started a romance with my breakaway pants, When I tried to rip them off everyone grinned The hidden courage of the underdog, Never saw it coming, never saw it coming, Waiting in line til he's number one, His little heart is thumping, little heart is thumping Clock is ticking, got the ball, Crowd is cheering, show them all, My crush was kissing the captain in my place, Instead of shooting I threw it in his face The swervy courage of the underdog, Never saw it coming, never saw it coming, Waiting in line til he's number one, His little heart is thumping, little heart is thumping

When you drive down, to that place You won't come back, ever the same Music playing, on the street Pickin away now, in that heat When that chance comes, you better run When that chance comes, you gotta strum Yeah, you gotta strum Head to the Honky Tonk, guitar on my back I talked to the manager he said, you don't stand a chance I got twenty others, ready to play My advice to you son, you best be on your way When that chance comes, you better run When that chance comes, you gotta strum Yeah, you gotta strum I finally got my shot to, get on that stage I started pickin, and blew them away People were dancing, and having a ball They threw their money, at my guitar When that chance comes, you better run When that chance comes, you gotta strum Yeah, you gotta strum

Morning bell, I hear it ringing and it's time for school, They got the TV on, it's turned to channel one, I turned my head around and heard a brand new sound, I thought my life was going fine but I was wrong, Thought it was perfect til I heard it in a song, When something comes along to change your mind, You've been missing something you can't define, You can make a bad day turn around, Anytime you hear it, Tell me did you hear it? Heading home, I cranked it up and now my speaker's blown, Back to my driveway and I'm pulling in, I'm in my car and I'm still listening, My mom's banging on the door, But I just want some more, I thought my life was going fine but I was wrong, Thought it was perfect til I heard it in a song, When something comes along to change your mind, You've been missing something you can't define, You can make a bad day turn around, Anytime you hear it, Tell me did you hear it?

Ferris wheels swirling and cotton candy twirling at the county fair Holding her hand and watching as the fireworks explode in the air Well the night was getting cold and they didn’t want the moment to end So he ran to the car to grab her coat and no one ever saw him again Til the day he stumbled up the steps to her door He said, “I came back with your coat but the rides and fireworks aren’t there anymore” She said, “Don’t you tell me that, It’s been 25 years and you told me that you’d be right back” It’s quarter past midnight, the kids are asleep and I thought you were dead You look like a fool in your letterman’s jacket, gray hairs on your head He said, “I know you won’t believe this and honestly neither can I, I was gone for five minutes and suddenly now time has left me behind” On this day where I’ve stumbled up the steps to your door We can have a second chance to pick up where we left off before She said, “I don’t know about that, It’s been 25 years and you told me that you’d be right back” Since then I’ve lived my life I found a lover, for a while I was a wife But things didn’t turn out like I planned And I’m scared to begin this again But I’ll try, but I’ll try Cause this day you’ve stumbled up the steps to my door We’ve been given this chance to pick up where we left off before He said, “I’ll believe in that” She said, “Whatever you do just don’t tell me that you’ll be right back” I’ll Be Right Back

The door I see leads me to a familiar room That I’ve never been to before and I open the door And I can’t see what’s been chasing me But it’s catching up to me Find the thing that’s escaping me Before my enemies Break through the door, into another room Hiding behind antique furniture cloth Fall through the floor, just like it’s another door Into a room that I’ve been to before I can see people watching me Watching me on a screen See the way they’re reacting Showing me which way to go Inch to the door, feel their anxiety And as I pull away feel their relief I know this show, I’ve seen this one before The only thing ending this noir is…. The door I see leads me to a familiar room That I’ve never been to before and I open the door

I heard that you shot 10 men yesterday You took a sip of whiskey and than you walked away Yeah that was you, that was you I think you got your story wrong you haven't got a clue I was praying in the church and not in the saloon I think that you've been drinking, and that's the truth They said the killer had black hair, but maybe I don't know You must have been the murderer, the preacher told me so Yeah that was you, that was you The preacher is a liar, I was sitting in the pews When I hear the pistol fire I was shaking in my boots But on my honor as a thief I swear this is the truth I raided the collection plate and then I fled the room I may not be a perfect man but I swear I did not shoot Why must you tell lies I can see it in your eyes Denying everything you can I'm not the one you think I am And that's the truth You're bleeding from a bullet wound, blood dripping down your back You're story isn't adding up so how you 'count for that Yeah that was you, that was you Well I stepped out of the chapel door, I heard the voice of God The preacher shot me in the back cuz he knew he'd been robbed I stumbled out into the bar, I thought it was the end And with the money I just stole, Next rounds on me my friends I swear that that's the truth, I begging on my knees If you're gonna hang me from my neck, one more shot of whiskey please. Why must you tell lies I can see it in your eyes Denying everything you can I'm not the one you think I am And that's the truth
