Lyrics:

Burn a little brighter every day Swimming in the tide against the waves And I can hold my breath until they crash Never been the type to wait Never had the time to play it safe I’m rushing in like an avalanche Loud as lightning bolts that strike Rolling thunder through the night And go, ooo Can’t stop won’t stop, just like a rolling Stone, ooo Let’s spend all night out on the open road Drive till we see the sun Our hearts were born to run Go, ooo Can’t stop won’t stop just like a rolling stone Ooo - ooo Ooo - ooooo Ooo - ooo Just like a rolling stone Marching in line like we’ve been told All the little lies that we’ve been sold I keep staring down a highway made of gold Picking up quick and moving fast Never looking down or looking back So we can make the feeling last Loud as lightning bolts that strike Rolling thunder through the night And go, ooo Can’t stop won’t stop, just like a rolling Stone, ooo Let’s spend all night out on the open road Drive till we see the sun Our hearts were born to run Go, ooo Can’t stop won’t stop just like a rolling stone Ooo - ooo Ooo - ooooo Ooo - ooo Just like a rolling stone Ooo - ooo Ooo - ooooo Ooo - ooo Just like a rolling stone Go, woah, hey Can’t stop won’t stop just like a rolling stone Go, woah, hey Let’s spend all night out on the open road Drive till we see the sun - hey Our hearts were born to run Go, woah, hey Can’t stop won’t stop just like a rolling stone Just like a rolling stone Just like a rolling stone Just like a rolling stone Can’t stop won’t stop just like a rolling stone Just like a rolling stone Just like a rolling stone Just like a rolling stone Can’t stop won’t stop just like a rolling stone Just like a rolling stone Just like a rolling stone Just like a rolling stone Can’t stop won’t stop just like a rolling stone

It's been a while since I’ve seen stars in arizona It's been a while since I’ve seen roads without a car But as fast as I can run, can't seem to find sweet medicine so I'm going home It's been a while since I’ve smelled roses in the city It's been a while since rode down old rock creek lane But as fast as I can run, can’t seem to find my medicine so i’m coming home You know my momma told me not to talk to strangers But lately I don't even know myself Turn out these lights They’re too damn bright I need the moon tonight So let me walk outside Turn out these lights You know they’re too damn bright I need the moon tonight So let me walk outside Now I can’t wait to feel the breeze move through my body Cause lately I’ve been flying in my dreams But as high as can I fly, All these ghost keep passin’ by, so i’m flying home You know my momma told me not to talk to strangers But lately I don't even know myself Turn out these lights They’re too damn bright I need the moon tonight So let me walk outside Turn out these lights They’re too damn bright I need the moon tonight So let me walk outside It’s quieter now, but louder somehow It’s quieter now, cuts through the sound It’s quieter now, but louder somehow It’s quieter now, cuts through the sound Turn out these lights They’re too damn bright I need the moon tonight So let me walk out- Turn out these lights They’re too damn bright I need the moon tonight So let me walk outside Turn out these lights You know they’re too damn bright I need the moon tonight So let me walk outside

Lyrics:

I’ve been skimming the paper, I’ve been scrolling around I’ve been trying to get up, but something’s holding me down I’ve been shutting my eyes, but getting no rest – no I’ve been trying to leave, but can’t get out of this nest I left the stove on yesterday and I, Put on a coat in the middle of May and I, Wonder how many birds would it take? To carry me away Away Away Away I’ve taking days off, so I can do work I’ve been trying to smile, but all I get is a smirk And I’m starting to see, the day make way for the night I’m not scared of the ocean, but I’m stuck in the tide Headed out to Santa Fe but I, Broke down on Avenue A and I, Wonder how many birds would it take? To carry me away Away Away Away I used to feel wild, I used to be okay Now I’m man inside another metal cage But I can hear them call, they’re never far away – can you hear them? I used to sleep at night, but now I like awake Dreaming up the perfect plan for my escape But I can hear them call to carry me away To carry me away Away Away Away To carry me away Away Away Away Headed out to Santa Fe but I, Broke down on Avenue A and I, Wonder how many birds would it take? To carry me away (to carry me away) Away (to carry me away) Away (to carry me away) Away (to carry me away) To carry me away (to carry me away) Away (to carry me away) Away (to carry me away) Away (to carry me away)

Better Than Being With You East Love

Lyrics:

I gave up talking I gave up being me I gave up being Who I used to be But yesterday, I thought I’d try something new I gave up trying I gave up trying to believe Gave up believing Gave up believing we’d be Anything, and now its all out of view Cause being alone babe is, better than being with you I gave up singing Then started thinking it through Why give up singing? If I’m not living for you? So here and now, I’m gonna try something new Cause being alone babe is, better than being with you There ain't no way out And there ain't no such thing as someday And I’m not fallin down This train is only rolling one way There ain't no way out And there ain't no such thing as someday And I’m not fallin down This train is only rolling one way Oooooohhh… There ain't no way out And there ain't no such thing as someday And I’m not fallin down This train is only rolling one way There ain't no way out And there ain't no such thing as someday And I’m not fallin down This train is only rolling one way I started living When I stopped living for two I started thinking When I stopped thinking ‘bout you And this morning I’m, a lighter shade of blue Cause being alone babe is, better than being with you

Lyrics:

So tell me baby Whatcha see? When you’re staring at the sky Miles away from me Can’t find you lately Where you been? Did you run into the ocean For a midnight swim? Every time I catch you I have to let you go. Where did you go? Woah oh, woah oh oh Drawn to your glow My fire, fire, firefly Burning the day Ah ah, ayy I know you can’t stay My fire, fire, firefly She said my baby Don't be shy And then she grabbed me by the hand And held me in her eye So I said lady, Take me there. No, don't tell me where we're going, Cause I don’t care. Every time I catch you I have to let you go. Where did you go? Woah oh, woah oh oh Drawn to your glow My fire, fire, firefly Burning the day Ah ah, ayy I know you can’t stay My fire, fire, firefly You're flying around You're a light, you're a sound Not something I can keep Fly higher my dear Touch the atmosphere Keep dancing in your sleep Where did you go? Woah oh, woah oh oh Drawn to your glow My fire, fire, firefly Burning the day Ah ah, ayy I know you can’t stay My fire, fire, firefly Where did you go? Woah oh, woah oh oh Drawn to your glow My fire, fire, firefly Burning the day Ah ah, ayy I know you can’t stay My fire, fire, firefly

Straight Lines East Love

Lyrics:

I can't say sorry for being myself But a little less of me, might be better for my health My sneakers are roughed up, but they still work just fine. Why am I moving in circles, when I’m looking for straight lines? Moving in circles, but I’m looking for straight lines. I got onto a subway, I got off in Seattle Forgot to get some sleep and I woke up kind of rattled I can't plan a day ‘cause I don't know the time. Why am I moving in circles, when I’m looking for straight lines? Moving in circles, but I’m looking for straight lines. Know what I want, baby know what I’m lookin for (I know) x8 Twenty-five years is too much time The city it's too noisy, the country is too quiet Why am I moving in circles, when I’m looking for straight lines? Moving in circles, but I’m looking for straight lines. Moving in circles, but I’m looking for straight lines. Moving in circles, but I’m looking for straight lines.

Lyrics:

Well I know this girl and she’s very fine She knows just how to keep me in line And I wish that I could make her shine If only I could make her mine, cause I… Try and try to let her in, and I Try and try to let this begin, while I Know that I should learn to love her, but I Lose my mind each time that she cries With that perfect smile and her long black hair It seems to me that the fight just aint fair It’s just broken hearts can last forever but Time heals all so I won’t forget her, and I…. Try and try to let her in, and I Try and try to let this begin, while I Know that I should learn to love her, but I Lose my mind each time that she cries Ah-ah-eyes… She’s the queen of my dreams, the princess of my soul If only I could learn to let go I would be her prince and let things flow I would be her king and let her know that I… Try and try to let her in, and I Try and try to let this begin, while I Know that I should learn to love her, but I Lose my mind each time that she cries Try and try to let her in Try and try to let this begin, while I Know that I should learn to love her, but I Lose my mind each time that she cries Ah-ah-eyes… Eyes, eyes, each time that she cries

Lyrics:

Remember me? We used to love each other so passionately Now I’m cold and grey And I’m looking for you to remind me How to feel that way Cause I keep looking behind me For an answer, babe I’m looking for you to remind me Remember me? We used to love each other so openly Naked honesty And I'm looking for you to remind me How to love that way Cause I keep looking behind me For an answer, babe Wishing you were still beside me Woah, maybe I’ve gone and left my lovin’ Woah, and I can’t figure it out Woah, maybe I’ve gone and left my lovin’ Woah, I keep wondering now… Maybe I’ve gone and left my love with you, woah Maybe I’ve gone and left my love with you, woah Maybe I’ve gone and left my love in a past I'm still dreaming of Maybe I’ve gone and left my love with you You or me? We can point fingers so easily Liquid memories And waves of our story colliding Kicking up the sand And I can’t see to the bottom Dive and hold my hand cuz maybe we haven’t forgotten Woah, maybe I’ve gone and left my lovin’ Woah, and I can’t figure it out Woah, maybe I’ve gone and left my lovin’ Woah, I keep wondering now… Maybe I’ve gone and left my love with you, woah Maybe I’ve gone and left my love with you, woah Maybe I’ve gone and left my love in a past I'm still dreaming of Maybe I’ve gone and left my love with you Maybe I’ve gone and left my love with you, (left my lovin, left my lovin) Maybe I’ve gone and left my love with you (and I can't figure it out, no) Maybe I’ve gone and left my love in a past I'm still dreaming of (dreamin of) Maybe I’ve gone and left my love with you
