Nothing is nothing but I'm still around Not trying to get older Buried alive in your ground I've still got something left to give I've still got something left to give Bottom of the barrel and top of the line If somebody matters won't you show them a sign? I've still got something left to give I've still got something left to give I had a reason to give but I gave it away I've given up on dreaming Glory runs astray. Just reaching out You don't have to care Anywhere else you're looking there's a party over there I've still got something left to give I've still got something left to give Life's like a song you choose what chords you play and if nobody listens I guess you're on your way I've still got something left to give I've still got something left to give I felt my heart tonight when you said hello my apathy returned where did you go? As you get older regrets get big as tears The longer you're around the more you disappear I've still got something left to give I've still got something left to give The world rages on to have something to show I'm gonna die and nobody's gonna know I've still got something left to give I've still got something left to give

I wish I'd hear from you today Will there be tears behind your eyes? All I see is a lone train against the sky There's you waving my heart goodbye I gave you my heart but I'm taking it back You're just a fast engine on another track Your heart's on fire and you're picking up speed. Who am I fooling with my locomotive dream? I wish I'd hear from you today Will there be tears behind your eyes? All I see is a lone train against the sky There's you waving my heart goodbye You're a hot little number not the only one There could be lots of switching 'til my main line comes You're the only one who could take the longest mile I haven't seen you around for a while. I wish I'd hear from you today Will there be tears behind your eyes? All I see is a lone train against the sky There's you waving my heart goodbye

Love is a beautiful illusion Love is as soft as dreams and as welcomed as tears like the tightrope in the wind up over the clouds after the sunset ends the long night may let you down and the past is a preacher with a broken spirit the future's his canvas he'll make sure that you fear it like the tightrope in the wind up over the clouds after the sunset ends the long night may let you down So go on in the world the right life will find you where no meddler will go and no lover will quit may you fly with the truth trust in the kiss when you're gone from a lover you will be missed Love is a beautiful illusion Love is as soft as dreams and as welcomed as tears like the tightrope in the wind up over the clouds after the sunset ends the long night may let you down the long night may let you down the long night may let you down the long night may let you down the long night may let you down

You healed me with a promise and now I'm left to die It ain't a big deal for you because you've got some other guy but when you're in my arms again and he's nowhere in sight let's see who gets to break a heart tonight? You've got yourself a story that nobody'd want to tell You say you're good at talking you know it all too well Well I'll tell you a story of how my heart once burned bright let's see who gets to break a heart tonight. You've got all this authority even though you don't have faith. Do you keep making excuses because there's something left to gain? Well it's time big girl to make your choice and take your stand you can't go back to high school and hope we'll understand you're a missle on your way here conversation can't be light let's see who gets to break a heart tonight I can see what this will turn into before I even take a bite let's see who gets to break your heart tonight.

She's got a new heart written on her you can feel it when she hovers by but it's all good says the wise man she will love you until you die she won't run away for too long and she won't ever say goodbye the money's in her spirit she will love you until you die you can mess around on her fill her golden heart with your lie she'll be gold until you're smiling she will love you until you die you might survive your Pisces while the heart thieves wander by you've got her in your pocket she will love you until you die She's got a life written on her you can feel it when she hovers by

You won't mean a thing anymore anymore down the line you had your time changed your mind I have closed the open door You won't mean a thing anymore anymore down the line you had your time changed your mind I have closed the open door Manitoba summer sun everyone is getting high getting by might as well be night out of sight windchill minus 49 You won't mean a thing anymore anymore down the line you had your time changed your mind I have closed the open door You won't mean a thing anymore anymore down the line you had your time changed your mind I have closed the open door

All the shadows were there beneath all these days we've shared we see no way out even if we wind up somewhere you ask me to answer "how can we clear this air" and face the fears you don't face your fears are everywhere all the reasons I fell for you still exist in this song like the chords and the feelings left to wind up where they belong I'm taking the high road and hope I don't slip through these cracks the wrong track was easy the right track ain't turning back doomed to be lucky lady luck with a catch there's always something to release us and set us back you know there's no "us" there's no us in this anymore all the reasons you fell in with me fell out the door all the reasons I fell for you still exist in this song like the chords and the feelings left to wind up where they belong I'm taking the high road and hope I don't trip through these cracks the wrong track was easy the right track ain't turning back I've looked to hard for love in this one horse town money ain't tight set up for setting down you came along it's love that my heart can't afford because you don't know yourself who am I suffering for? all the reasons I fell for you still exist in this song like the chords and the feelings left to wind up where they belong I'm taking the high road and hope I don't slip through the cracks the wrong track was easy the right track ain't turning back All the shadows were there beneath all these days we shared.

You're going or staying I don't know I guess I'll stay where you blow You've got time I've got time I want to know will our life survive? How many days how many nights must you say what ain't right? money will come money will go we all want to know will our life survive? You want to know what's in your life going by you know that you want to know what's in my life you want to know what's in my life the past you're afraid of. It's a mudslide where you're gone it's the flood that comes for your home true the carpet ain't glued down under you you want an answer to the questions of your life. you want an answer to the questions in your life. River's gonna flood again you're bound to lose your someday friend you're gonna hurt you're gonna cry to make sense out of life

Only love knows Only love knows she's been looking on the run and justifying there's been seeds of doubt blooming long ago I've walked into a war of no satisfying and there's lives exposed connections flying low she's dreamed of me until those fateful evenings and days of bliss were stranded around her lies and as much energy as she's spent in her deceiving she hasn't gotten around to his goodbye only love knows where uncertainty is going only love knows why I pray only love knows this way that I'm walking only love knows why I drift astray She's given herself no chance to stop and talk now to remind her of all the words she once did say easier to break the new heart on the block than the old heart that has been pushing her away it was all too convenient and perfect now I must decide what life I'll lead challenges outline every verdict just choose between the wounds from which I'll bleed only love knows where uncertainty is going only love knows why I pray only love knows this way that I'm walking only love knows why I drift astray She's gonna drive me crazy and I know it I can't believe what I've put myself into I love her and now I'm damned to show it she's with this man we know will not be true and yet I'm just a scapegoat for delusion and a man who has caused some trouble to roll on through you can dress a story in illusion to forget ever there was truth in what you do. only love knows where uncertainty is going only love knows why I pray only love knows this way that I'm walking only love knows why I drift astray

I don't want to be your next broken home I long to be the hand you hold long after life is gone from your eyes when the cost is felt in those goodbyes and all the playboys and their lies are all long gone and their promises no longer echo on to give you comfort with you by my side will give meaning to the story of a life. Seems there's nothing now that I can control I'm left here helpless on this open road Was your love just a fleeting kiss? Is there anyway to hold onto this? You were so warm and now you've been so cold must be some lie that somebody's told I don't deserve this love that's died is this the lesson for a story of a life? You've shown me love that changed a life raised the bar and shattered my eyes there's been glimmers of a madman going blind still nothing like this hell I'll leave behind you're laughter heals my light when I'm alone you comfort me with your heart and your soul put it in park, babe, I will let you drive down the road to a story of a life.

We will dream to walk again further on the open road we'll catch these eyes and dreams and feel the heart beyond our own we'll not part paths for too long there will be songs to take us home and we'll take the hard road on and we'll pass no time alone we can be far apart and no the dream is realized I never lived back in the times before I met your eyes when three made a crowd we yearned to be on our own and we'll take no prisoners here and we'll pass no time alone she runs soft through the deep sands on arroyo grande's shore she will pick one more flower down while the sunset cries for more and I'm longing for you now more than ever before we'll take that hard road on and we'll pass no time alone
