Selected Lyrics:

LOST AGAIN

Lost again, somebody tell me how to get there.
Cause I can’t take another hand shake
or another blank stare
Thought I knew what I had to do to get through to you
guess your head is thicker than i thought
you know i am starting to think that it might be you
cause i know you’ve got a lot of things
and people you look too
do you believe that i never see what you’re doing t me?
i’ll keep smiling til the door closes behind me

I know where i wanna go
but i just don’t know
no i just don’t know how to get there
i know where i wanna go
but i just don’t know
no i just don’t know how to get there

lost again somebody tell me how to get there
if i hit another detour i’m afraid that i won’t care
who’d have thought that i’d have bought the expectations
that gold raod probably just leads straight to hell
and once i’m there are you gonna care or conveniently look away?
i don’t think i want us to fall of and die that way
do you believe that i never see what you’re doing to me
i’ll keep smiling till the door closes behind me

i know where i wanna go
but i just don’t know
no i just don’t know how to get there
i know where i wanna go
but i just don’t know
no i just don’t know how to get there

do you, do you, do you…. tell me if you do!

WILL TOMORROW EVER COME

is it ever gonna come
i want to believe i can’t really see
cause i’m afraid to even lift my head up
if i look for you are you gonna be gone?
i want to jump ahead and just run so it’ll be done
i’m stuck – i can’t get up
i want to but i can’t stop the chase
want to win the race
i know – it’s all a show

and you promise me
you keep telling me
tomorrow is close but will it ever come
and you promise me
you keep telling me
tomorrow is close but will it ever come?

i never thought it’d be more than this
but you prmosied me and unfortunately
i bought it completely althugh
after i wake up i’m sure that i’ll know
that today was just the rest of my life
i’m not gonna die sitting there hoping that i
can someday come and claim the ring
it’s not anything i know or want to become

and you promise me
you keep telling me
tomorrow is close but will it ever come
and you promise me
you keep telling me
tomorrow is close but will it ever come?
will tomorrow ever come
will tomorrow ever come
will tomorrow come, i just want to know
will i be happy tomorrow happy tomorrow happy tomorrow?

I want to know if i’ve got a reason
to keep hanging on when i want to let go
i want to know if you actually mean it
or is it just part of a much bigger show?
cause i’m not gonna just lay down
while i slowly drown
i never agreed to that
and i’m not gonna hold my breath
till ther’s nothing left
i’d start laughing anyway

and you promsie me
you keep telling me
tomorrow is close but will it ever come
and you promise me
you keep telilng me
tomorrow is close but will it ever come?
will tomorrow ever come
will tomorrow ever come
will tomorrow ever come, i just want to know
will i be happy tomorrow, happy tomorrow, happy tomorrow
