Dancing in the Air

I walk a tightrope in

High skirts and heals

Gum on my soles fire below

To see how it feels

Yeah yeah yeah

Just another day at the office

Cheers from the crowd drown the roars from lions inside

No one can tame them

But damn the best clowns have tried Hide hide hide

Just another day at the office

Some cry no and some cry yes

Live or dying here that’s anyone’s guess

I exist to take the ride

Twirling around above I see

We’re all just spinning in a tent maybe

I won’t need the net to abide

Lightweight that’s right I don’t have to come down

Even if I hit the ground

If this life is my only chance to take flight

Then I’m dancing in the air tonight

The air tonight

The air tonight

Then I’m dancing in the air tonight

The air tonight

The air tonight

Slight miss direction might scare the patrons below

I pop my umbrella keep em guessing which way I go

Oh oh no

Just another day at the office

Trills from the snare rouse magicians stealing the show

It’s all an illusion but still some people don’t know

Here we go

Just another day at the office

Some cry no and some cry yes

Live or dying here that’s anyone’s guess

I exist to take the ride

Twirling around above I see we’re all just spinning

In a tent maybe I

Don’t need the net to abide

Lightweight that’s right I don’t have to come down

Even if I hit the ground

If this life is my only chance to take flight

Then I’m dancing in the air tonight

The air tonight

The air tonight

Then I’m dancing in the air tonight

The air tonight

The air tonight

Twirling around such atmosphere

A beautiful view from here

If I never stop trying, I won’t come down

Lightweight that’s right I don’t have to come down

Even if I hit the ground

If this life is my only chance to take flight

Then I’m dancing in the air tonight

The air tonight

The air tonight

Then I’m dancing in the air tonight

The air tonight

The air tonight

If I Can’t Be With You Anymore

What if

What if I could carry on

Even after you are gone

Even if it’s raining

What if

Our demise was something good

If I somehow understood

All the years I’m gaining

I never needed anyone

Anyway

I never needed anyone

What if those were words that I could say?

We’ve had our good times sure but

What’s it all for

If I can’t be with you anymore

What If

What If you were just a fool

Leaving me you broke no rule

Just passed me over

And what if I could just erase my head?

All our time gets lost instead

I could be sober

I never needed anyone anyway

I never needed anyone

What if those were words that I could say?

We’ve had our good times sure but

What’s it all for

If I can’t be with you anymore

If I can’t be with you anymore

WANDERING BIRD

Whistling for the Birds

Well it looks like the bells are about to chime

Another raised glass for some friends of mine

They’ve got a brand-new house and a 401 K

And a mapped out plan traveled day by day

Feels like I’m still back playing with sticks and stones

Got a bruise so bad sunk into my bones

Will I ever make sense of my momma’s wise words?

I keep running my mouth whistling for the birds

Ooo ooooooo ooo ooooooo

He had hands of steal and some leather-bound boots

Walked the whole damn world walked right in my roots

Is it hard to believe you could ever just stay?

Guess the ground was too soft guess the field's too gray

Feels like I’m still back playing with sticks and stones

Got a bruise so bad sunk into my bones

Will it ever make sense all these tracks that I lay?

Still sitting here wondering why you walked away

Ooo ooooooo ooo oooooo

Ooo ooooooo ooo oooooo

Not Much Else

You wanna try to love again

Pick up the dust

Fill me with trust but I don’t know

If I can let my anger go

You wanna capture all my fears

Lighten the mood

Well not to be rude but I don’t know

Something inside I can’t unsew

The water’s too deep

The rivers too wide

The world we once knew

Like a flood with no tide

Well I’d like to be logical wouldn’t you?

It’s just there’s not much else

That you can do

You wanna take me by the hand

Whisper my name and feel no shame

But I don’t know

No words can hide the lies you show

And you wanna kiss me with your soul

Live in my heart

Wish I wasn’t so smart and in control

Then all our truths might take no toll

Cause the the waters too deep

And the rivers too wide

The world we once knew

Like a flood with no tide

Well, I’d like to be logical wouldn’t you?

It’s just there’s not much else that you can do

It’s just there’s not much else that you can do

It’s just there’s not much else that you can do

Haunt Me

I watch the corners spacing in and out

In and out

A thousand miles from the ticket booth

Where you signed up

I still remember every day how we felt

Two years now

Still breathing

Are you

Still healing?

I am too

Silhouetted visions in constant laughter

Dreams do taste so sweet when they take you there

Istill dream we’re running down 45th street

In my dreams we’re always the perfect pair

Why oh why can’t my mind stop bleeding you’re so happy

Love’s so fleeting

Haunt me no more

I check the status walls sign in and out in and out

Keep it light keep it sane

You don’t remember anymore

I’m the same

Gray T shirt blue sweater

Warm pockets feels better

Why oh why can’t my mind stop bleeding

You’re so happy love’s so fleeting

Haunt me no more
