Better Off Being Wrong Kyle Cox
04:01

Lyrics:

A hundred different women all curse my name But the way I treated them who are they to blame The man I used to be I ain’t proud of But I never met a man who ever was, who ever was I’ve burned so many bridges in the name of Christ A few of them still keep me up at night Though I try to take it back & fix what I can They don’t want to hear it & I understand I’ve worked so hard to be right for so long I’m starting to think I’m better off being wrong I put too much pressure on all of my friends To never let me down & pay me compliments But now are they afraid to hear the truth when it hurts I’m always giving words a little too much worth Got a beautiful girl who calls me her own Swore in front of God she’d never leave me alone I’m doing what I can to give her all of my love Even then I start to wonder if I’m still enough I’ve worked so hard to be right for so long Giving everything I’ve got to be what everybody wants I’ve worked so hard to be right for so long I’m starting to think I’m better off being wrong Amazing grace how sweet the sound But I’ve taken all I can get Used every drop till it’s dried out Lord knows I’ll need more yet

All My Time Kyle Cox

Lyrics:

It’s hard to sit still in a world that moves so fast Keep on pushing forward ain’t no time to catch my breath The battle for my attention the things that matter hardly win I’m afraid it’ll be too late when I decide to let them in One day we’re here, oh the next day we’re gone Have just but a moment with this skin on Life is precious honey, sure there’s work to do But I’d gladly give all my time to you Often I wonder if this race I’m running in Is only a desctraction from you in the end ‘Cause I’ve grown tired of chasing some distant finish line That we’ve all been told is worth the sacrifice Everyone keeps running like it’s what their born to do But for what real purpose, oh I haven’t got a clue When this gets old honey, you just need something new I’d gladly give all my time to you We’re all in such a hurry, wear it like a crown Rulers of our own kingdom forcing others to bow down But we weren’t meant for glory, no we weren’t made for praise It’s a poison that’ll kill us, no matter how good the taste Oh I’ll never understand how liars always win And honest men pay the price when they’ve been cheated I’ve hardly got the answers in the search for truth But I’d gladly give all my time to you Oh I’ve hardly got the answers, honey, in the search for truth But I’d gladly give all my time to you Oh I’d gladly give all my time to you

Enjoy What's Left Kyle Cox
04:34

Lyrics:

The year’s almost over, Oh how quickly it moves The days are much shorter and the nights are colder Sleeping alone in a bed made for two It doesn’t take much For things to look different Trees with no leaves, a hand with no ring Life’s always changing as each season passes But I’ll take my time to enjoy what’s left The cool morning air & early sunsets The bottle of wine that you bought but I wish you had kept I’ll take my time to enjoy what’s left I hardly remember Before winter’s frost Those warm summer nights, your hand in mine Walking for hours just to get lost But I’m sure in no time This ice will melt away And flowers will bloom, the world will be new But it’s hard to imagine ‘cause it’s so bitter today But I’ll take my time to enjoy what’s left The cool morning air & early sunsets The bottle of wine that you bought but I wish you had kept I’ll take my time to enjoy what’s left Yeah, I’ll take my time to enjoy what’s left Staying out late to try & forget How you could walk out on us & leave me a wreck Oh I’ll take my time Yeah, I’ll take my time to enjoy what’s left

Lyrics:

I’m waiting on the sun to rise, lift the shadows of the night Oh my darkness, you’re a friend, a friend of mine I’m waiting on the Spring to move, undo all that Winters do Turning death into life and old into new But this life has had it’s way And I know I’m not the same But I long for who I was before the change I’m waiting on my wounds to heal, ready for my heart to feel Surrender my sword and drop my shield I’m waiting on the sun to rise, lift the shadows of the night Oh the darkness is no friend, no friend of mine I’m waiting on the Spring to move, undo all that Winters do Turning death into life and old into new But this life has had it’s way And I know I’m not the same But I long for who I was before the change I’m waiting on my wounds to heal ready for my heart to feel And surrender my sword and drop my shield Everyone has me convinced That there’s no escaping this And I better, yeah, I better get used to it So I’m waiting on the sun to rise, lift the shadows of the night Oh the darkness is no friend, no friend of mine Yeah, the darkness is no friend, no friend of mine

Where's The Magic Gone Kyle Cox
02:18

Lyrics:

Where’s the magic gone? Where did it run to? Never thought it’d leave but I’m left with an emptiness Won’t you tell me where the magic’s gone Back when I was young it was all around Everywhere I looked it was there but now I blankly stare And I wonder where the magic’s gone Is there a reason why it was leaving? Did I stop believing? Oh could it be true? Now I just hope that one day it’ll come back And make everything new Maybe one day soon we’ll be together again And the world will come alive right before my eyes Just like magic Oh sweet magic Yeah, this old magic That I once knew

Love Remind Me Kyle Cox
03:24

Lyrics:

Goddamn the man that I’ve become Curse the breath inside my lungs I’ve lost touch of where I’m from Goddamn the man that I’ve become The rock upon which I stand I’ve chipped away & turn to sand Love remind me who I am The man I was who said “I do” Ain’t the one that sleeps next to you I’m afraid I’ve forgotten how To be the one you can’t live without Time to time I get real scared It’s hard to trust these vows we’ve shared Love remind me you’ll be there The man I see I don’t recognize I’m not myself, I don’t know why Love be patient, oh love be kind I ain’t seen the sun for years I’ll catch a glimpse but it disappears My friends they say it’s always here But I ain’t seen the sun for years The more that I stare at the sky The longer that it stays night Love remind me the sun’ll rise Oh love remind me the sun will rise

Somewhere In Between Kyle Cox
03:44

Lyrics:

I’m looking for something new Not sure what, hope to find it soon Not trying to complain but I could use a change I’ve risked it all, I’ve played it safe It don’t matter the outcome stays the same Nothing lost, nothing gained I could just use a change A little up a little down A little lost a little found A little hope a little doubt I may be wrong but I want to believe The change is somewhere in between Drunk at a bar or singing in church I’ve walked away from both feeling worse Disappointed and ashamed Man I could use a change Everyday there’s someone new Who’s trying to sell me their version of truth I don’t buy a word they say But I could use the change A little up a little down A little lost a little found A little hope a little doubt I may be wrong but I want to believe The change is somewhere in between Maybe this too shall pass But I’m losing interest fast Give me something that lasts It’ll be clear one day I’m sure Exactly what I’ve been looking for Though I won’t be there today I could still use a change A little up a little down A little lost a little found A little hope a little doubt A little in a little out A little love a little hate A little fear a little faith A little give a little take I may be wrong but I want to believe The change is somewhere in between The change is somewhere in between

Sorrow Holds This Shovel Kyle Cox
More: Lyrics
03:03

Lyrics:

Sorrow holds the shovel digging in my soul The older I’ve become the deeper that it goes This well is never empty, with every passing year The water’s always rising, filling with my tears In this well I put to rest Every heartbreak, hurt, & loss till nothing’s left In this well, lay my troubles down From it’s depths is where my joy is found In this well Sorrow holds the shovel & it’s always been this way Used to terrify me but I’m no longer afraid I’ve come to recognize that the further sorrow digs The more sadness that I know, the more love I have to give In this well I put to rest Every heartbreak, hurt, & loss till nothing’s left In this well, lay my troubles down From it’s depths is where my joy is found In this well Sorrow holds the shovel, but it’s only for my good ‘Cause if I had the choice to do it’s work I never would In this well I put to rest Every heartbreak, hurt, & loss till nothing’s left In this well, lay my troubles down From it’s depths is where my joy is found In this well I let go All sadness, pain, & anger I’ve held close In this well, lay my troubles down From it’s depths is where my joy is found In this well

Stick Around Kyle Cox
02:41

Lyrics:

It don’t take much to bring me down But my heart don’t hurt when you’re around Stick around, stick around Your love keeps me walking on the clouds You make all the colors bright But when you’re gone it’s black & white Stick around, stick around Everything looks better when you’re in town You’re voice is like the sweetest song But there’s no music when you’re gone Stick around, stick around You’re the prettiest little song I ever found My feet can’t help but start to dance When you & I are holding hands Stick around, stick around I’m moving to the rhythm of your love without a doubt I don’t do well being alone & it’s been said when you know, you know And when it comes to us I think it’s clear Folks can talk as much as they like, but there’s no use in changing my mind I need you close, I need you here So I’d like to ask if it’s alright Would you take my hand & be my bride And stick around, stick around You & I forever would surely make me proud ‘Cause when we leave this life & earth behind Whoevers first to the other side Stick around, stick around Even death can’t hold a love like ours down No death can’t hold a love like ours down Even death can’t hold a love like ours down

Fields Of My Heart Kyle Cox
03:39

Lyrics:

The fields of my heart have grown old & dry Just thistles & thorns & they’ve choked out all the life The seeds that have been sown have all withered & died Soil’s far too shallow for any roots to survive I miss the sun, I miss the rain I miss the beauty that’s faded away I miss who I was when I was young And I’d still dream about who I’d become So with dirt on my knees & sores on my hands I’ll work this old grown the best that I can Many years have passed by when I last took any care Gravel fills the soil now & weeds have grown up everywhere But I wanna do what it takes, I wanna roll up my sleeves I wanna dig up what’s left & start over & yeah, I wanna bleed I miss the sun, I miss the rain I miss the beauty that’s faded away I miss who I was when I was young And I’d still dream Oh I’d still dream I miss the sun, I miss the rain I miss the beauty that’s faded away I miss who I was when I was young And I’d still dream about who I’d become I miss the laughs, I miss the cries I miss standing up for what’s right I miss the freedom to fuck up And remember that I’m already loved So with dirt on my knees & sores on my hands I’ll work this old ground the best that I can
