She Sees

Written by Cliff Hillis & Danny Wilde

 

Verse 1

Morning comes again too soon

with the ghosts of yesterday

Shadows filling up her room

Spilling out into the day

 

Pre Chorus

By the bye, nothing left to try

Letting go of all the pieces

 

Chorus

She sees her picture in the paper

So sad to say it’s over

He reads the writing on the pages

Slips into the past and fades away

 

Verse 2

Walking through an open door

Lights are flashing in the sky

What is all this crying for

Say hello and wave goodbye

 

Pre Chorus

By the bye, nothing left to try

Letting go of all the pieces

 

Chorus

She sees her picture in the paper

So sad to say it’s over

He reads the writing on the pages

Slips into the past and fades away

 


 

 

Never Understand

Written by Cliff Hillis

 

Verse 1

And I can even see it coming

It falls apart before my eyes

Searching for a greater something

I will try, I will try

 

So who is it I think I'm fooling

Is it me myself or I

Just before you pull the curtains

Say goodbye, say goodbye

 

Chorus

‘Cause even when you say it's broken

I keep running back again

I read between the words unspoken               

Guess I'll never understand

Ooh ooh ooh ooh

 

Verse 2

Living is my soul intention

But lately that's been hard to do

Working with a bad connection

Can't get through, can't get through

 

So what's the point in even trying

To remedy the loneliness

I laugh until I end up crying

Such a mess, such a mess

 

Chorus

‘Cause even when you say it's broken

I keep running back again

I read between the words unspoken               

Guess I'll never understand

Ooh ooh ooh ooh

 


 

Elevator

Written by Cliff Hillis

 

Verse 1

You can't go home anymore

There's a fine line drawn on the door

There's a sad song stuck in your head

And some memories under your bed

 

Now I know I've gotta be strong

As the days keep dragging along

All my thoughts get carried away

'Til I'm left with nothing to say

 

Chorus

Because I'm waiting for an elevator

That can take me anywhere but here

 

Verse 2

There's a hazy look in your eyes

It's as if you wore a disguise

Circumstance beyond our control

But I just don't wanna let go

 

Did I hear you calling my name

All the words keep sounding the same

Calling out to everyone

It's the last day under the sun

 

Chorus

As I'm waiting for an elevator

That can take me anywhere but here

 


 

Northern Lights

Written by Cliff Hillis & Danny Wilde

 

Verse 1

Streaming like a radio station

Shooting from another location

Waiting for a standing ovation

Talking with reverberation

 

Walking in the slowest motion

Listening w/ true devotion

Shouting over the commotion

Drinking up the deepest ocean

 

Chorus

Brighter than the northern lights

Trying hard to get it right

All stars are out tonight

Shining on

 

Verse 2

Fighting hard for your attention

Sorry did I fail to mention

We’re trying with the best intention

Far beyond your comprehension

 

 

Chorus

Brighter than the northern lights

Trying hard to get it right

All stars are out tonight

Shining on

 


 

Ought To Know

Written by Cliff Hillis & Dennis Schocket

 

Verse 1

Crooked letters put together

Never meaning what they say

When you break down then you come round

And it’s always been that way

 

Chorus

Still you fall for the same old lies

And try to come to a compromise

It gets the best of you every time

You oughttt know it

You oughta know all this by now

 

Verse 2

See your picture on the front door

Left ajar & open wide

Never speaking, always reaching

Never far enough to hide

 

Chorus

Still you fall for the same old lies

And try to come to a compromise

It gets the best of you every time

You oughttt know it

You oughta know all this by now

 


 

Follow You Anywhere

Written by Cliff Hillis

 

Verse 1

There’s something about you

That’s keeping me up at night

Try talking about it

The words don’t come out right

 

I’m stuck in a bad way

So far from reality

I’m lost in a movie

Suspend my disbeleif

 

Chorus

And I’ll follow you anywhere

I’ll follow you anywhere

 

Verse 2

Can’t wait any longer

Can’t figure out where to go

If I made a confession

Would you want to know

 

Chorus

That I’ll follow you anywhere

I’ll follow you anywhere

 


 

Good & Bad

Written by Cliff Hillis & William John Wisely Jr.

 

Verse 1

Good & bad love one another

How can they keep this from falling apart

Losing a memory to see it the right way

Only to feel it so deep in your heart

 

Chorus

He says sorry for something

She says there's truth  in a lie

So close to saying the same thing

See you tomorrow, I’ll see you tonight

 

Verse 2

Good & bad, hide from the weather

Keep it together under the sky

Watching the rain clouds, speak with their tongues

Talk without words and you can't tell a lie

 

Chorus 2

he says sorry for something

she says there's truth in your lie

so close we're coming together

I'll see you tomorrow, I'll see you tonight

I'll see you tonight

 

Bridge

Everyone needs to breakdown, everyone here is brave

Everyone needs to breakdown, everyone here is brave

 

Verse 3

Good & bad love one another

How will we keep them from falling apart

Fixing their puzzles finding their freedom

Still moving forward then back to the start

 


 

Like An Island

Written by Cliff Hillis & Ritchie Rubini

 

Verse 1

Do you remember your first regret

The things we can’t change, never to forget

It’s all around us, this waking dream

But I will hold on to the moments in between

 

Chorus

Like and island to the ocean

If you try you’ll never take me down

Like the night sky that surrounds us

I won’t make a sound

 

Verse 2

You walk in circles and sing your song

Until you realize the melody’s all wrong

 

Chorus

Like and island to the ocean

If you try you’ll never take me down

Like the night sky that surrounds us

I won’t make a sound

 


 

All For The Sake

Verse 1

Don't let this slip away

You will know what to say

Pull your head from the sand

Try your best be a man

 

Chorus

‘Cause it's all for the sake

All for the sake

Of letting in a little light

All the things that you fear

Are just as far as they're near

You've been running so fast

Let the good moments last

Caught in the same old song

Listen to this refrain and try to sing along

All for the sake

Shake Me Down

Written by Cliff Hillis & Kyf Brewer

 

Verse 1

Lost the feeling, running around inside my head

It’s the bones that I’ve discovered

Disenchanted ‘til the flames are burning red

‘Til the moment is recovered

 

Pre Chorus

Black like a total eclipse

Fall right through your fingertips

A million miles away from home

And all that’s left are hollow bones

 

Chorus

Shake me down until what’s lost is found

I wanna hear that sound

 

Verse 2

It’s hard to find it when you’re wrapped inside yourself

Hard to keep it all together

Caught behind it, thought that I was someone else

Once it’s gone it’s gone forever

 

Pre Chorus

Black like a total eclipse

Fall right through your fingertips

A million miles away from home

And all that’s left are hollow bones

 

Chorus

Shake me down until what’s lost is found

I wanna hear that sound all around

 

Bridge

Shake me down, turn my empty pockets inside out

Shake me down, make me realize I’m lost without
Shake me down shake me down

 

Chorus

Shake me down until what’s lost is found

I wanna hear that sound all around

 


 

Faded Star

Written by Cliff Hillis

 

Verse 1

You're looking in the wrong places

Missing all the parking spaces

Filling up your days with worry

Slowly moving in a hurry when will you learn

 

You're making all your own problems

Listening to ghosts & goblins

Walking like you're headed somewhere

Never happy when you get crash and burn

 

Chorus

This faded star you’re chasing

Has almost burned away

Think of the time you’re wasting

Yesterday becomes today

 

Verse 2

You’re making all the wrong decisions

Sticking with your tired visions

Could you mess it up completely

Ruined effortless and neatly take your turn

 

Hovering below the radar

Wondering how you never got far

Think of all the things you should say

Saturday becomes a Thursday never return

 

Chorus

This faded star you’re chasing

Has almost burned away

Think of the time you’re wasting

Yesterday becomes today

Yesterday becomes today
