“Promises To Keep; Miles From Sleep” Lyrics

01. Am I Ready?

I’ve packed my bags, and made my bed,
Leaving the place I lay my head
And I’m heading out on my own,
Taking back roads past every broken home
That I’ve come to know

These thoughts running though my head say “it’s too much”. Am I ready?
There’s a time and place for every state of mind.
As I look to the sky, I ask for strength in this life

It’s never easy when you start drifting apart,
Just know that you’ll stay safe inside of my heart,
Until we meet again,
I hope (know) your time has been well spent,
Cus we’ll still be friends with no regrets

So I’ll take the moments and write them down,
To live them again as I read them out loud,
The shoreline, the long drives, the good times, the goodbyes,
Makes this a place to call our home

These thoughts running though my head say “it’s too much”. Am I ready?
There’s a time and place for every state of mind.
As I look to the sky, I ask for strength in this life

It’s never easy when you start drifting apart,
Just know that you’ll stay safe inside of my heart,
Until we meet again,
I hope (know) your time has been well spent,
Cus we’ll still be friends with no regrets

I have watched these seasons pass me right on by,
While the world outside has turned from green to white,
And everything between is a memory tonight,
Do my words ring true, is this reaching you

02. I’ll Tell You Everyday

Hey, can you hear what I’m saying
Words they go round
Never making much of a sound
I fell down and hit the ground
Cus love is like a ticking bang bang bang in my head
I hear it calling your name

I got something to say
You’re not listening
I’ve got something to say to you

I’ll tell you everyday that I need your touch
Just how much I love you baby
And here we’ll make our stand
Together we’ll be holding our hands high
Forever we will find peace tonight
Cus baby its only you and I

Hey I think we’ve done this before
Just once more
Because what goes around yeah comes back around

So tell me why
Is it so hard to find
Tell me why
Is it so hard to find

I’ll tell you everyday that I need your touch
Just how much I love you baby
And here we’ll make our stand
Together we’ll be holding our hands high
Forever we will find peace tonight
Cus baby its only you and I

03. Forgiveness

I’m a person of just a few words
I’ve never been one to shine
My thoughts have always been mine
It’s not complicated
I just need you to listen
Because this in time
Could be my good bye

Deep in my soul I’ve lost all control
I know I can’t go on tonight
All I wanted to be was someone that you could see
I’m living my life surrounded in all this hell
Please just forgive this
I promise I’ll be, I’ll be me.

I’m ashamed of what I became
Wish of a better life
Free of all strife I rise and fall
This world won’t accept me at all
Time I lie just to make it by
Please help me before I

Deep in my soul I’ve lost all control
I know I can’t go on tonight
All I wanted to be was someone that you could see
I’m living my life surrounded in all this hell
Please just forgive this
I promise I’ll be, I’ll be me.

Don’t you tell me how it all should be
I choose my fate there’s nothing you can say
I’ve heard it all (so many times before)
I’ll climb an ill fall (I don’t want to die anymore)
Die anymore

Deep in my soul I’ve lost all control
I know I can’t go on tonight
All I wanted to be was someone that you could see
I’m living my life surrounded in all this hell
Please just forgive this
I promise I’ll be, I’ll be me.

04. Impressionable Youth

Can fates be decided by the smallest of things?
Like the changing of seasons the wind always brings
It’s not always clear; sometimes far, sometimes near
We search or whole lives for meaning
When what we should do is start from the beginning

So for us to reclaim ourselves
And be rid of all our hate
Our greed and our lust as well
A miracle is what it might take

Stand together for our last night
Don’t be afraid to shine so bright
You can echo their voices
We’ll choose to stand and never to break away

For those who can feel the pressure right on their heels
We may lose sight of ourselves somewhere along the way
Don’t you dare wake up and realize one day
Who you were has finally gone away
Because of what’s wrong and what’s right
The truth will be hidden from our sight

We must continue to believe
Cus there’s always been some good
A method to this madness
Well say it right here where we stood

Stand together for our last night
Don’t be afraid to shine so bright
You can echo their voices
We’ll choose to stand and never to break away

They say that there’s no reason
That you can’t possibly fight what’s leaving
But together we will stand for a new day

Stand together for our last night
Don’t be afraid to shine so bright
You can echo their voices
We’ll choose to stand and never to break away

05. As Good As It Gets

Take it from me
That there is no end, no end to this road
And death is just the doorway to the path that leads us home
And if I could
I would not let you go alone
But something inside me says don’t be afraid of the unknown

Life is fragile and I don’t have a plan
But no matter where I stand
I’m on top of the world

This is as good as it gets
Raise a glass and we’ll drink to it
Cus this night could last a lifetime (for life)
And if I’m right, Things will never be like (this)

I have got so much left to do with my time and my life.
And while I’m here, I’ll stay forever by your side
So don’t cry when I go
Cus I gave you everything I got and more.
I won’t forget the time I’ve spent
Or regret the life I’ve led

Life is fragile and I don’t have a plan
But no matter where I stand
I’m on top of the world

This is as good as it gets
Raise a glass and we’ll drink to it
Cus this night will last a lifetime
And if I’m right, Things will never be like

The time we spend
Everything we do, it just gets us closer to the end
So let’s make the most of this
Let’s make the most of this

I’m just happy to know
I’m alive and breathing.
Love’s in my heart, and it’s still beating

06. Grassroots

Pipe dreams of being famous
Might seem a little childish
Labeled underground
And No one cares about it
Where has the music scene gone to?
Looks like everyone’s content with
Following the crowd
And manufactured sound

I hope you know by now
At this point we won’t back down
Stand strong or move along
This scene is a family now

More bands everyday
they Break up in the same way
Saying they have grassroots
we know that’s not the truth
Money can’t buy me stardom I
Don’t have an A&R rep
We stick to our guns
And do all our own stunts

I hope you know by now
At this point we won’t back down
Stand strong or move along
This scene is a family now

07. Results And Prospects

So you want the answer
Don’t worry I’ll make sure
That your brain gets its exercise
You’ll be the first in line
So you want the answer
Never came so everyone left
It turns out it was there but it was never said
Cus truth is close to useless

It kills me when a good mind is defined by what is read
Don’t let those words go to your head and change the way you think
It’s sad but true the majority can’t lose
No one really wins cus
Winning infers what you gain
Is getting rid of hurt and pain
Cus everybody hurts everbody feels
Like they’re the good guy

One night we’ll realize it’s all the same
Replay of a never-ending game
But that’s alright cus
Ignorant is just another word for happy
Everyone that wins will become a has been

That’s the problem when your
Mind is set close to sure
Your brain starts to recognize
That the oppositions right
That’s the problem when your on the edge
And you can’t pick a side
You’re falling I’m calling
I’ve got more than one reason but
Reason don’t help much
Reason won’t help us

I was doing fine
And then the history books told me
What the future has in store here
Theres nothing on my mind
But the way this all works out and the way I feel fine about it

One night we’ll realize it’s all the same
Replay of a never-ending game
But that’s alright cus
Ignorant is just another word for happy
Everyone that wins will become a has been
The past is nothing more than a complication
Play it all off like it never happened
Don’t say that

The past is a world full of land mines
And trying to change things wastes time
These are results and prospects
I’ll take everyday like it’s all mine
Altruist views to the wayside
These are results and prospects
But no one wants them

I was doing fine
And then the history books told me
What the future has in store here
There’s nothing on my mind
But the way this all works out and the way I feel fine about it

One night we’ll realize it’s all the same
Replay of a never-ending game
But that’s alright cus
Ignorant is just another word for happy
Everyone that wins will become a has been
The past is nothing more than a complication
Play it all off like it never happened
Don’t say that

08. Stay With Me

As the candles burn into the night
I’ll watch you in their light
And I’ve never wanted more
Than you right here right now and I’m sure

You’ve got a few tricks in store
A few things I won’t believe are coming out of your sleeves and
Into my dreams

Will you stay with me?
While I catch my breath
I’m scared half to death
I’ll have to take the plunge
Cant live without you and
Id die to be around you
So will you stay with me

I’m so taken and my heart is racing
Tell me what it will take
I’m at a loss for words
You may not be all mine, but I’m all yours

I’ve played this out in my head
Oh Time after time
Every verse and every line
And never changed a thing that was said.

Will you stay with me?
While I catch my breath
I’m scared half to death
I’ll have to take the plunge
Cant live without you and
Id die to be around you
So will you stay with me?

You don’t know what you mean to me,
This just isn’t what it seems. Because when it comes to you I’m nothing less than selfish,
But I can’t help it.

Will you stay with me?
While I catch my breath
I’m scared half to death
I’ll have to take the plunge
Cant live without you and
Id die to be around you
So will you stay with me?
As the candles burn into the night
I’ll watch you in their light

09. Moving On

How did it go down like this?
It’s hit or miss
We shouldn’t end up like this
My heart is gone
But I feel more alive since it’s all done
I see it breaking you down

Don’t you think this life is meaningless?
You’ll see the point in all of this someday
Just hold on
To that spark that lights your flame
Another memory filled with shame

All the best lies are told with the greatest intentions
For a chance at redemption
All the best crimes are never done blind
It was you that brought us here
It was you and all your fear
So just keep moving on
Well just keep moving on

Are you honest when you speak?
In your eyes you seem so weak
I know it’s hard to admit your demons
Keep finding reasons to keep them at bay

Don’t you see this life is worth a risk?
I know it’s hard I’ll promise you this
Just hold on cus you’re stronger than you know
Your gonna let it show I’ll let you know

All the best lies are told with the greatest intentions
For a chance at redemption
All the best crimes are never done blind
It was you that brought us here
It was you and all your fear
So just keep moving on
Well just keep moving on

You had to get so far gone
But it’s never far enough
You’re shifting your weight to throw us off the wire
I won’t be fooled again
(I won’t be fooled again)

All the best lies are told with the greatest intentions
For a chance at redemption
All the best crimes are never done blind
It was you that brought us here
It was you and all your fear
So just keep moving on
Well just keep moving on

10. Feeling Something

You say you’re angry but hey
You’re feeling something
There is worse things than the life you’re living
Just look beyond what they call ordinary
This world might get you down
At least it’s still going round
I hope you’ll see that love is how we’re bound

If I told you that life was as simple as this
Would you understand?
Cus I’ve seen first hand
That looking at the glass half full could be the start
I know it’s hard but everybody has their part in this plan (in this plan)

Ask yourself what’s worth all the anger
Theres few things in this life worth pulling that tug like an anchor
You’re throwing punches in the air
Never hitting always missing the point
I hope you’ll see that when we find love its harmony

If I told you that life was as simple as this
Would you understand?
Cus I’ve seen first hand
That looking at the glass half full could be the start
I know it’s hard but everybody has their part in this plan (in this plan)

Wake up wake up…

If I told you that life was as simple as this
Would you understand?
Cus I’ve seen first hand
That looking at the glass half full could be the start
I know it’s hard but everybody has their part in this plan (in this plan)

11. Music Is A Weapon

There’s only four things that matter
And that’s three chords and the truth
They say that music is a weapon
So I will use it for me and for you

So sing with me now like you mean it
Sing at the top of your lungs
There won’t be a day that you’ll have to be afraid
If there’s still a song to be sung
(there’s still a song to be sung)
