Reasons

Come back for another day with me
Come back you’ll never want to leave
Just give it all up
Just take a knee and you’ll see

The pictures on the wall don’t look the same
On the outside the snow has turned to rain
You’re packing up everything we have
You said you might be back

You’ll never go right if you’re always wrong
You’ll take it with a grain of whatever comes along
Well you’re leaving all my favourite seasons
I just hope you have your reasons

The cool has gone, the grass is turning green
Did you find out what’s there us what you need?
Get back, get back where you belong
Just like you were never gone

You’ll never go right if you’re always wrong
You’ll take it with a grain of whatever comes along
Well you’re leaving all my favourite seasons
I just hope you have your reasons

A reason to pretend
A reason it won’t end
It’s what I keep holding on to
A reason you’ll get tired
Remember what we had
A reason to come back

You’ll never go right if you’re always wrong
You’ll take it with a grain of whatever comes along
You’ll never go right if you’re always wrong
(Come back for another day with me)
You’ll take it with a grain of whatever comes along
(Come back for another day with me)
Well you’re leaving all my favourite seasons
I just hope you have your reasons

Don't Give Up On Us

Stay until the morning and maybe you’ll forget
Try hard to remember,
How we were when we first met
Is that feeling still there apart of you, must still care

So don’t give up on us quite yet
I know right now it hurts
But don’t believe the part of you that says it just won’t work
What we had back then is still enough
So don’t give up on us
Don’t give up on us

All these memories they sting, nothing left to hold on to
Like a firework on New Year’s Day but we’ll never light the fuse
There used to be so much to say
Now it’s just passing through the days
Trying hard to get it back

So don’t give up on us quite yet
I know right now it hurts
But don’t believe the part of you that says it just won’t work
What we had back then is still enough
So don’t give up on us

I hate the hard times too, but I know I belong right here with you
Please believe that too

Don’t give up on us quite yet
I know right now it hurts
But don’t believe the part of you that’s had enough

Don’t give up on us quite yet
I know right now it hurts
But don’t believe the part of you that’s says it just won’t work
What we had back then, is still enough

So don’t give up on us
So don’t give up on us
So don’t give up on us
Don’t give up on us

Stay until the morning and maybe you’ll forget

Story Of Your Life *thanks brookie Smile *

Every story has a writer,
Whose life has been inspired by love
Or a desire to get inside the mind of the reader
Or least get to the next page

Every movie has a part,
Where they get to the heart of the matter foreshadowing
What might be happening
Whether or not there’s a trapdoor in the floor of the stage

Coz I’m trying to read, coz I’m dying to see

Who will I be in the story of your life?
Where will I be if you close the book tonight?
Am I the hero or the villain?
Is it a history or a fiction?
Will I still be here in the end?
In the story of your life
In the story of your life

In the novel I’m writing
I’ve decided I’m using the actual identities
Instead of misleading the people I love
Coz they’re the ones who need it the most

Every chapter is another beginning
And I’m beginning to guess
My character’s in way over his head
Coz of something he said or maybe something he wrote

So I’m trying to read coz I’m dying to see

Who will I be in the story of your life?
Where will I be if you close the book tonight?
Am I the hero or the villain?
Is it a history or a fiction?
Will I still be here in the end?
In the story of your life

Tell me Juliet, can we make it through this act without a tragedy
Oh let’s get through this scene coz I’m dying to see

If I will be in the story of your life
Where will I be, if you close the book tonight?
Who will I be in the story of your life?
Where will I be, if you wrote the book tonight?

Who will I be?
(Every story has a writer whose life has been inspired by love and a desire)
In the story of your life
(Every story has a writer whose life has been inspired by love and a desire)
In the story of your life

Better Day

All apologises my dear
I know you feel like I’m not here
And a part of me is missing all the time
I only give you half of me
Cause I’m afraid the rest of me
Would scare you into leaving me behind

So I keep my secrets to keep us safe
Cause I did a lot of things and I just don’t know what to say
I made mistakes that baby I can never take away
I want to tell you everything, but I think we will change
So I will wait, wait for a better day

With everything I keep from you
You might think that I don’t love you
But nothing could be further from the truth
I just want things to stay the same
They probably will the more I wait
But if we don’t talk I’m gonna fall away from you

But I keep my secrets to keep us safe
Cause I did a lot of things and I just don’t know what to say
I made mistakes that baby I can never take away
I want to tell you everything, but I think we will change
So I will wait, wait for a better day

I know it’s not right but I’ll keep hiding anyway
All these things I know I should say
But baby I’m afraid

I did a lot of things and I just don’t know what to say
I made mistakes that baby I can never take away
I want to tell you everything, but I think we will change
So I will wait, wait for a better day

Fairweather Friend

Fairweather friend it took me too long to find out what I was in for
Fairweather friend I just can’t wait for you to change your mind

And it’s alright if you stay with me tonight
Until the rain passes by

I’m giving it all away
I never really held your pain
Because you never let me in all the way
I gave you the best of me
It’s time that we both see
Maybe it’s better to just let it end
Fairweather Friend

How many times will you fold all your things up packing with subtle indifference
And all that we dreamt of was everything
Waiting until we could leave

And it’s alright if you stay with me tonight
Until the rain passes by

I’m giving it all away
I never really held your pain
Because you never let me in all the way
I gave you the best of me
It’s time that we both see
Maybe it’s better to just let it end
Fairweather Friend

I’m growing old waiting for you to come around
I’m breaking down

You’re taking it all away
I never had the time to say
Leave it all behind us
It’d never be the same

I’m giving it all away
I never really held your pain
Because you never let me in all the way
I gave you the best of me
It’s time that we both see
Maybe it’s better to just walk away
Maybe it’s better to just let it end

Fairweather Friend

LA Girl

Driving down a way one street underneath the Austin sky
Your hair was a thousand miles away, stuck on the 405
There's a fine line between what you want and what you got, I guess
I never really had you

You were halfway in
But you were always running out

I don't think this ever could've lasted
Cause you were always going just a little faster
I don't think you ever saw into my Texas world
My pretty little LA girl

Rolling out across the desert, that’s a long goodbye
But you can't say we didn't give it one helluva try
That day in Santa Fe, I swear I almost spun this car around
Baby, we both know

This never ever could've lasted
Cause you were always going just a little faster
Don't think you ever saw into my Texas world
My pretty little LA girl (LA Girl)

You were halfway in,
But you were always running out...

Don't think this ever could've lasted
You were always going just a little faster
I don't think you ever saw into my Texas world
My pretty little LA girl
Oooo...

A Dream Of My Own

Am I right?
I can do this in my mind
But the longer it takes
It gets harder on me
Am I right?

It's okay.
You've taken enough of the blame
But the longer it takes
It gets harder on you
It's okay.

This is too fast
This is not everything
You're taking from me

Stop, pull back
You're stealing me
You're leaving me
Without a hope
A dream of my own, alone.

Would you doubt
My intenetions are real?
But the longer it takes
It gets harder on you
Would you doubt?

If this is too fast
This is not everything
You're taking from me

Stop, pull back
You're stealing me
You're leaving me
Without a hope
A dream of my own

You've held onto me as long as I needed you to
I can't keep holding on to you

Stop, pull back
You're stealing me
Stop, pull back
You're stealing me
You're leaving me
Without a hope
A dream of my own.

I Bet You're Beautiful

I’ve got a picture, right here in my head
I just haven’t seen you yet,
And I’ve got a feeling
That you’re right around the corner

I just don’t wanna turn the wrong way
On the right day,
You’re just out of reach,
I’m hoping you walk my way

I bet you’re beautiful
I bet you’re looking for me
I bet you’re waiting
I bet you’re waiting for the day that we meet
I bet you’re beautiful
I bet you’re beautiful

You could be closer, than I ever realized
One thousand miles away
You’re like the star that no-one’s found
It’s like I’m chasing you
Just waiting for you to turn around

I bet you’re beautiful
I bet you’re looking for me
I bet you’re waiting
I bet you’re waiting for the day that we meet
I bet you’re beautiful

I bet you’re laughing at a joke,
That I haven’t told,
But you always have the right thing to say
I know that I’ll found you someday

I bet you’re beautiful
I bet you’re looking for me
I bet you’re waiting
I bet you’re waiting for the day that we meet
I bet you’re beautiful

I bet you’re smiling,
Wish you were smiling at me
I bet you’re waiting,
I bet you’re waiting for that day that we meet
I bet you’re beautiful
I bet you’re beautiful

Lost In America

New York didn’t do it for you,
The prices, the vices or some other excuse,
But California suited you well
It’s just that nobody’s real and the traffic is hell

When are you gonna tell the truth
That its you
That it you you’re running from

I’ll be right here waiting for you
To take the place of that I feel in you???
I’ll be right here when you’re through
Getting lost in America

You got a place far from the coast
When you wake and you see you’re already home
Before you started running in trying to find yourself
Anywhere but here

I’ll be right here waiting for you
To take the place of that I feel in you???
I’ll be right here when you’re through
Getting lost in America

I’ll be right here waiting for you
To take the place of that I feel in you???
I’ll be here when you’re through
Getting lost in America … mmmmmm
No matter how far you go
You’re right here
No matter how far you fall

I’ll be right here when you’re through
Getting lost in America
I’ll be here when you’re through
Getting lost in America
I’ll be right here waiting for you

Lost in America
Lost in America
Lost in America

Taking The Blame *thanks Nancy for the edits Smile*

Staring out the window
of this highrise, in the fall
I can't think of a single thing to say
I know you feel like giving up
And walking away from it all
Believe me, I feel like that everyday

Keep your words they're all you have
Please, be careful what you say
Leave me right where we began
I'm okay with taking the blame

Looking at the people walking down the boulevard
Lovers in their raincoats laughing at the sky
I know you can't be like that everyday
At least, I wanted to try

Keep your words they're all you have
Please be careful what you say
Leave me right where we began
I'm okay, taking the blame

Keep your words, they're all you have
Please, be careful what you say

Keep your words they're all you have
Please be careful what you say
Leave me right where we began
I'm okay, I'm okay with taking the blame

Forever

The morning light, turns you over
Wakes you up, and I just smile
And in your eyes, I see forever
Like a flash, I know it's you,
It's you, all I want this to be

Forever, I stay here
Forever, right here with you
Forever, is how long I would wait
Forever, I promise to be here with you

I catch my breath, everytime I see you
All you do, is walk into a room
I don't know why, I waited this long
To open my eyes, to realize its true
It's true, all I need is you

Forever, I stay here
Forever, right here with you
Forever, is how long I would wait
Forever, I promise to be here with you

For awhile not sure I thought past today
And now tomorrow is all I want, is all I want to see

Forever, I stay here
Forever, right here with you
Forever, I lay awake
Forever, as long the day is with you

Forever, forever,
I promise to be here with you
I promise I'll be here with you
I promise to stay here with you

Also, if he's writing about the people he loves cuz they are the ones that "read" it the most it loses meaning to the song. The people "need" him to maybe expose some truth - or say something that will help them but hurt them because the truth hurts sometimes. then later his character is in over his head because of something he said "or maybe something he wrote"

Oooo do I get a title? Woohoo Smile


I just found this "topic" tonight! But yes, Dom deserves the title of Lyrics Queen.

Putting them out here for us is a huge undertaking. After that, it is easy for us to fine tune them, finding minor edits or improvements when needed. We might never have them at all, without Dom's major effort.
Thanks again, Dom.
