Minha Voz

Sometimes

Sometimes I can feel you coming
Like you’re not that far away
Like a freight train sneaking up behind me
While I’m looking the other way

I know you’re gonna knock me down
And there’s nothing I can do
So I just stand and wait here
Waiting to get hit by you

Sometimes the sadness overtakes me
The sorrow is my closest friend
My first thought when I wake in the morning
“I can’t wait to get to sleep again”

When I sleep I get to dream
When I dream you’re with me
Livin like we used to do
Lovin like we used to be

Anywhere

And she moves like a samba
And she floats on the air
And her smile makes me wanna
Go with her anywhere

And she showed me who I am
And who I want to be
From her I got the freedom
To finally be me

And when she dances
She will never dance alone
As long as I have the chance
She’ll know she is the one

Cuz she moves like a samba
And she floats on the air
And her smile makes me wanna
Go with her anywhere

And she captured my heart
And she captivated my soul
And nothing tore me apart
Like the day she let me go

 

Run With Me

All I ever wanted was a partner in crime
And when I found you I thought I had it this time
Everything was perfect I don’t know how it could
Go from so right to so misunderstood

I never wanted to control you
I never wanted to be in charge
I just want to be beside you
I just want to be in your heart
I don’t want to push you
I just want to watch you be
I just want to be there too
Won’t you, won’t you run with me

All I ever dreamed of was a woman like you
All I ever needed was a love that was true
When I finally found you, thought I’d never be lost
I guess I never thought about the cost

I never wanted to control you
I never wanted to be in charge
I just want to be beside you
I just want to be in your heart
I don’t want to push you
I just want to watch you be
I just want to be there too
Won’t you, won’t you run with me

Feelin alone again
I don’t know where I’ve been
If I can’t run with you
I have to run to you
I have to run

I never wanted to control you
I never wanted to be in charge
I just want to be beside you
I just want to be in your heart
I don’t want to push you
I just want to watch you be
I just want to be there too
Won’t you, won’t you run with me

Where I Can Be Me

And I can’t tell you where she is
And I can’t tell you what she thinks
And I don’t know where she wants to be
And I don’t know if she thinks of me

And I can’t tell you what she’s doing
I’ve no idea what’s in her memory
And I don’t know where all this goes
I just hope she knows

But I can tell you that she looks good in purple
With the rain pounding on the window behind her
And I can tell you she looks good with the top down
And her hair blowing in the wind around her
And I can tell you that when she dances
She moves like an angel with a devil’s smile
And I can tell you that she loves with a passion
And I haven’t seen that in quite a while

And I know that where she is
That is where I want to be
And I know that she has my soul
Wherever she goes is where I can be me

Broken

I’m just so tired of being sad
I guess I could get good and mad
Won’t do me no good no way
I suppose there’s nothing left to say

There’s just so much that seems undone
I was sure that you were the one
It could be that I was wrong
But you made me feel like we belong

When you left
You left me broken
Now you’re gone
You left an empty shell
Of what used to be a man
When you left
You left me open
Walking through my own hell
Here and there and back again
You left me broken

I’m just stumblin round in a haze
This confusion could last for days
Truth is I’ve lost track of time
I’m left here to wonder when and why

When you left
You left me broken
Now you’re gone
You left an empty shell
Of what used to be a man
When you left
You left me open
Walking through my own hell
Here and there and back again
You left me broken

I wake each day to a new hope
I hope every day just to know
If and when and how this ends
Will I ever hold you close again

I’m just so tired of being sad
I guess I could get good and mad
Won’t do me no good no way
I suppose there’s nothing left to say

When you left
You left me broken
Now you’re gone
You left an empty shell
Of what used to be a man
When you left
You left me open
Walking through my own hell
Here and there and back again
You left me broken

I’ll Save Your Seat

I know you’re gone
I know you’re not coming back
I may never see you again
But when I drive my truck
You’re sittin here beside me
My arm around you and then

Your hand’s on my leg
Your head is on my shoulder
Everything is how it should be
Cuz the middle seat is yours
No one else will ever sit there
I will always save you your seat

I remember
You climb in and slide over
Give me a kiss, wink and a smile
I sit a little taller
When you are riding next to me
Everything is perfect while

Your hand’s on my leg
Your head is on my shoulder
Everything is how it should be
Cuz the middle seat is yours
No one else will ever sit there
I will always save you your seat

Then Came You

I’ve never known a woman
Who was what she said she’d be
I’ve never met one who could
Keep all her promises to me

Then came you
You made me believe too
You took all of me and I knew
You had me thinkin it was true
I believed, believed in you

But you were no different
The same as all the rest
Didn’t think it’d end the same
Was sure you were the best

Cuz then came you
You made me believe too
You took all of me and I knew
You had me thinkin it was true
I believed, believed in you

I know I blew it too
I’m sure I let you down
I thought we could make it
Thought you’d always be around

I always fall hard
I always give it all
Not much left now
Of this heart to go
To anybody else
It’s all used up
It’s all tore up

And then came you
You made me believe too
You took all of me and I knew
You had me thinkin it was true
I believed, believed in you

Then came you
You made me believe too
You took all of me and I knew
You had me thinkin it was true
I believe, still believe in you

Time Machine

Now I’m not one for livin in the past
But I like holdin on to things that should last
I can’t figure what went wrong
And I’m not ok since you’ve been gone

If I had a time machine
I would only change one thing
I’m not sure what it would be
But it’d be the one thing
That would’ve kept you here with me

I thought I’d found true love before
But with you I know I’d never been more sure
I gave all I am to you
And all I want is all of you

I still think of you everyday
And I imagine the things that you’d say
Close my eyes and I see your smile
Smell your skin for a little while

If I had a time machine
I would only change one thing
I’m not sure what it would be
But it’d be the one thing
That would’ve kept you here with me

You left me here
And I’m broken
There are no words
To be spoken
Life goes on
This I know but
I’m so lost
I’ll tell you what
Only one thing can save me
I need you to be
Here

If I had a time machine
I would only change one thing
I’m not sure what it would be
But it’d be the one thing
That would’ve kept you here with me

You Made Me

Everything that I was
Everything that I am
Everything that I will ever be
Is forever changed
By the way you looked at me

You made me better
Than I ever thought I’d be
You made me worse
Than I feared that I could be
You made me brave
You made me strong
You made me one
Made me belong
To something greater than myself

You showed me love
And you brought love out of me
You helped me fly
When I thought I’d always be
Stuck on the ground
Caught in a rut
You fed my dreams
And brought them up
To a life that never could have been

And now it’s past
Now you’re gone
Thought we would last
Guess we were wrong
But the memories live on
The change in me is still alive
Even after love has died
Still the beating in my heart
Is for you and you alone

And everything that I was
Everything that I am
Everything that I will ever be
Is forever changed
By the way you looked at me

I Don’t

I want to believe
That you’re thinking of me
When I’m thinking of you
And someday we’ll be
Thinking together
But I don’t

I look at the sky
And I’m hoping that I
See the stars that you do
And soon we will try
Looking together
But we won’t

No I don’t, or I do
But I won’t, or I will
But I would, if I could
But I can’t, so I won’t
Or I hope that you do
But I don’t

I want to think
There’s a part of you missing
That is only for me
Like this hole that I sink
Into without you
But I can’t

No I don’t, or I do
But I won’t, or I will
But I would, if I could
But I can’t, so I won’t
Or I hope that you do
But I don’t

I just want to know
All there is to know about you

I know
You just met me
And I feel like I’ve missed so much
I need to get caught up

Know everything about you

What is it that you need
Can I be your everything

Fulfill your dreams
Let me know your fantasies

Way Back When

Sittin by the front door
lookin down the road toward
the place where she always arrived

Tryin to picture her face
in that old familiar place
the look that made me come alive

and I know she ain’t comin
but I’ll go on believin
if I keep on waitin
she might just come walkin
up again
just like she did
way back when

Waitin on a long train
Thinking bout the times when
She would only think of me

Ridin to the sunset
Couldn’t wait till we’d get
To that place we wanted to be

but I know she ain’t comin
I’ll just go on believin
if I keep on waitin
she might just come walkin
up again
just like she did
way back when

when you’ve
had all you ever wanted
it’s all you ever needed
and then it up and walks away

can you
wait for it to come back
or do you just accept that
it’s gone and it is gone to stay

I want to keep runnin
chasin after something
it’s always just out of my reach

I guess I’ll just stay here
pour myself another beer
lose myself inside of my dreams

cuz I know she ain’t comin
but I’ll go on believin
if I keep on waitin
she might just come walkin
up again
just like she did
way back when

Sittin by the front door
lookin down the road toward
the place where she always arrived

Tryin to picture her face
in that old familiar place
the look that made me come alive

and I know she ain’t comin
but I’ll go on believin
if I keep on waitin
she might just come walkin
up again
just like she did
way back when
way back when
way, way back when

 

Chasing Butterflies Without a Net

I’m chasing butterflies without a net
I’ve gotten close but haven’t got one yet
Thought I had one once but I was still vacant
I looked in my empty hand it just wasn’t so

I saw her flit by without a sound
Didn’t know it was a shadow on the ground
I gave chase, I’m still reaching all around
When you grab at nothing that’s what you’ll get

Grass always seems greener on the other side
But when you climb that fence that’s where you’ll find
It’s really not that different from what you left behind
So you keep on looking for what looks best

I can’t go back and I can’t move on
I can’t look around, can’t see where I’m goin
I can’t be quiet and I can’t scream
So I guess, no, I know, or, at least, I think…

I’ll keep chasing butterflies without a net
As close as I’ve been I’ll get one yet
There’s got to be one to fill this emptiness
I can never give up, I’ve got to find

 

I Run

The pain is right behind me
I can’t quite get away
It’s nipping at my heals
And I can only stay
A step ahead
So I run…

I can’t tell if I’m running
Towards or from something
I’m not sure what it is
But I know it’s coming
Or is it waiting
But I run

Running in and running out
Of who I want to be
All these faces in the mirror
Not sure which one is me
Or if its any
Still I run

I can always blame the wind
For the water in my eyes
No one can see the hurt
No one can hear the cries
I keep it hidden
And I run

 

Fleeting

I’ve seen true beauty
Held it here in my hands
Watched it sift away
Like falling sand
Through my fingers

I’ve known real love
Had it live in my heart
Felt it slip away
Like stolen art
But it lingers

And I hold on to memories
Look back at used to be’s
Wonder if it ever comes back
Or if the loss and what I lack
Can be replaced
Or if this trace
Is all I’m left with

Happiness and joy
Seem to come and go
Moments of my life
That I’ll never know
If they were true

Those passing days
When the sun shone bright
The peaceful times
In the dark of night
They’re all gone too

So I hold on to memories
Look back at used to be’s
Wonder if it ever comes back
Or if the loss and what I lack
Can be replaced
Or if this trace
Is all I’m left with

 

More Cold Than Wet

the river soaks through my shoes
and my socks
but the cold rushes up to my knees
refreshing
on this hot summer day

stepping into the current it pushes
on my legs
stronger than I imagined
toes grip rocks
bracing against the force

almost to my waist now
a sharp gasp
balls suck into my body
should be scared
can’t swim but I’m not

lay back into the water
close my eyes
let the current carry me
drift away
floating with the river

surprised how fast I’m moving
watch the trees
drifting by on the shore
try to breath
only once and let go

I thought the water was the thing
it is not
let the darkness take me
peace at last
more cold than wet

 

Just A Glimpse

Just a glimpse of perfection
A momentary brush with beauty
Just a short walk with wonder
But it didn’t last long

Just a glance at amazing
One passing moment in the sun
One quick ‘take your breath away’
But now it’s gone

I know your heart was in it
If only for a minute
You showed me all that I can do
I was a better man for you

Now your gone without a trace
And I fall on my face
Dreams are broken, love is lost
I can’t pay the cost

Maybe it would be better
If I’d never known what could be
If I didn’t know what’s missing
If I’d just gone along

Without a glimpse of perfection
Never had a brush with beauty
Never took that walk with wonder
Had no moment in the sun

You filled my heart and mind
With memories of our time
And I know one thing that’s true
My joy is filled with you

And a glimpse of perfection
A momentary brush with beauty
Just a short walk with wonder
Though it didn’t last long

Took a glance at amazing
One passing moment in the sun
One quick ‘take your breath away’
And the beauty lives on
