Survival
can’t say it’s always come so easy
heaven knows i’ve tried my whole life
i’ve worked for all the air i’m breathing up here
barely made it by so many sleepless nights
don’t tell me i don’t know a thing about survival baby
cause i’ve had to fight to get to where i am today
on time feeling fine for my arrival
maybe i’ve made it through the hard times and i finally found my way
been feelin like i’m on a mountain lately
way up in the sky and it feels so right
there’s no way that you’re ever gonna make me
ever feel that i ain’t worthy of these heights
don’t tell me i don’t know a thing about survival baby
cause i’ve had to fight to get to where i am today
on time feeling fine for my arrival
maybe i’ve made it through the hard times and i finally found my way
those days i didn’t have a dime made me stronger over time
i’ve had it bad but now i’m good wouldn’t trade it even if i could
don’t tell me i don’t know a thing about survival baby
cause i’ve had to fight to get to where i am today
on time feeling fine for my arrival
maybe i’ve made it through the hard times and i finally found my way

Bringin Me Back
can’t believe i let you get away
there’s no doubt i went about it all wrong
now i’ve changed and it’s another day
i was a fool and played around for too long
cause you wanted something
i’ll promise it all and much more
can you say to me with conviction
that you’re happier now than you were before
i know in time you’ll see my prediction
cause it’s so clear to me
that you oughta be bringing me back
got a lot i probably shouldn’t say
i wouldn’t wanna give it all up too fast
on the chance i could scare you away
so you may go and be a part of my past
cause you wanted something
i’ll promise it all and much more
can you say to me with conviction
that you’re happier now than you were before
i know in time you’ll see my prediction
cause it’s so clear to me
that you oughta be bringing me back
i keep on loving you baby
your kiss is all that can save me
since you went away and left me behind
i’ve got a million memories on my mind
can you say to me with conviction
that you’re happier now than you were before
i know in time you’ll see my prediction
cause it’s so clear to me
that you oughta be bringing me back

Soldier
i’m a soldier if you please
only cause somebody said so
over mountains through the trees
going where nobody else goes
so i fly through the sky with the sun upon my back
until the night when the other side attacks
now i’m mystery solvin
the case is evolvin
the enemy’s fallin
i hear them callin
coming out of the darkness
it’s all in focus
defending the ones who depend on the world
you don’t stand a chance
try and catch me if you can
my hiding place you’ll never find
you’re no match for my enemy mind
you don’t stand a chance i’ll always be on top
cause in the end you know i’ll never stop
i’m a soldier of the night
standing up for what is right
and i wouldn’t care if anyone knows
who i am cause all i need is to feel like i have freed
anybody who is down in a hole
so i fly through the sky with the sun upon my back
until the night when the other side attacks
now i’m mystery solvin
the case is evolvin
the enemy’s fallin
i hear them callin
coming out of the darkness
it’s all in focus
defending the ones who depend on the world
without a sound i’m outta the clouds
and hovering over the lights of the streets
till i have found the place i belong
so i fly through the sky with the sun upon my back
until the night when the other side attacks
now i’m mystery solvin
the case is evolvin
the enemy’s fallin
i hear them callin
coming out of the darkness
it’s all in focus
defending the ones who depend on the world

Walk Away
i’ve only got one shot
i know it’s all a lot to hope you feel the same
oh yes my dear
cause these butterflies
have got my tummy tied in knots
and you’re the one to blame
oh yes you are
if you love me girl
let me know right now
if your feelings never show
i’ll walk away
you’ve become my world
it was slow till now
i don’t wanna let you go
don’t walk away
do you realize that in your eyes
i find myself confessing everyday
oh yes i do
these jitterbugs have caught my love
and got me saying things i wouldn’t say
but i say them anyway
if you love me girl
let me know right now
if your feelings never show
i’ll walk away
you’ve become my world
it was slow till now
i don’t wanna let you go
don’t walk away
the way i often feel i cannot hide
i’m getting tired of holdin back what i wanna say
and even though i’m showin signs it seems no matter how i try
you gotta show me somethin somehow so i know your gonna stay
if you love me girl
let me know right now
if your feelings never show
i’ll walk away
you’ve become my world
it was slow till now
i don’t wanna let you go
don’t walk away
girl don’t walk away
if you love me baby
oh then won’t you show me yeah

Thinking Of Me
i love it when you’re walkin with me
when i drop you off i know what will be
you’ll call me on the telephone and tell me that you’re all alone
and that you’re thinking of me
each and every morning i rise
before i even open my eyes
i see you in my mind
and know that all throughout the night
you were thinking of me
i’m not an ordinary boy
and you’re not an ordinary girl
there’s no way we’ll ever say goodbye
and i hope you’ll always be
thinking of me
day dreamin about you all day
you’re unaware of all of the ways
you’ve come into my world and there is
not another girl that i want thinking of me
cause i’m not an ordinary boy
and you’re not an ordinary girl
there’s no way we’ll ever say goodbye
and i hope you’ll always be
forever in my life
til the end of time
so we can start again
and love beyond this life
when both our lights have shined out
and there is no doubt
that i’m not an ordinary boy
and you’re not an ordinary girl
there’s no way we’ll ever say goodbye
and i hope you’ll always be
thinkin of me

Fallin Apart
i saw a picture of us yesterday and it got me thinkin’ of you
i’m wonderin if this love is gonna make it through
i’m worried bout you runnin away with my heart
i saw it comin from the moment we met from the start
oh, feels like i’m fallin’ apart
you keep on caring about what people think is true
and whether it’s gonna last
maybe we’ve gone about all of this too fast
just like in times before you let me down again
upset by all those words and what the others said
even though you don’t show me that you wanna try
i keep givin myself to you even though i’m wondering why
i’m worried bout you runnin away with my heart
i saw it comin from the moment we met from the start
cause alone i know we’re happy wherever we are
feels like i’m falling
a part of me isn’t knowin how much longer this is going
the trouble is when we’re together we get along
i’m worried bout you runnin away with my heart
i saw it comin from the moment we met from the start
cause alone i know we’re happy wherever we are
feels like i’m fallin apart

I Can’t Tell You Why (Cover)
look at us baby
up all night
tearing our love apart
aren’t we the same two
people who lived through years
in the dark
aahh
every time i try to walk away
something makes me turn around and stay
and i can’t tell you why
when we get crazy
it just ain’t right
baby i get lonely too
you don’t have to worry
just hold on tight
cause i love you
nothing’s wrong as far as i can see
we make it harder than it has to be
and i can’t tell you why
no baby i can’t tell you why
i can’t tell you why
every time i try to walk away
something makes me turn around and stay
i can’t tell you why
i can’t tell you why
you know that you’re my girl

Time You Finally Came Back
why is it when i call your name
you’re never hearin me
you’re better at this kind of game
and now it’s clear to me
that we should never be so far apart
don’t ever go away
when you leave it only breaks my heart
just don’t know what to say
i can’t explain
how it feels to be alone right now
it’s time you finally came back
and made your way back to my arms
tell me what you wish and i’ll make it come true
anything that you want me to do
i miss your smile beside these miles drive me crazy
so won’t you finally come back home
i need you baby
i can’t explain
how it feels to be alone right now
it’s time you finally came back
and made your way back to my arms
can we be clear about another thing
when you come back you know you’re gonna bring
another side of you
and it’s not the fancy clothes you wear
or the way that you style your hair
oh it’s what’s inside of you
i can’t explain
how it feels to be alone right now
it’s time, you finally came back
and made your way back to my arms

No Substitution
walkin down the street
you know my watch it says it’s quarter to nine
nothin else could matter
got my swagger and my boys at my side
stepped into the party everybody’s starting to feel alive
and the beat don’t stop
life is on my side
and i got plenty room to ride and i know
there aint no substitution
bass and drums were kickin
as the crowd began to lower the lights
been a while since i showed off my style
so i reached for the mic
singin to the people
while i’m keeping with the rhythm that’s right
and the beat don’t stop
life is on my side
and i got plenty room to ride and i know
there aint no substitution
everybody is feelin something
trying to keep all the people jumpin
hot enough to make the room ignite
rollin on and it all feels right… cause tonight
life is on my side
and i got plenty room to ride and i know
there ain’t no substitution

Someone New
started out my heart was beating
cause i saw you
when you headed my way
now you tell me that you’re leavin
and i know
i probably drove you away
can see it in the way you look at me
i never meant to let you down
i just couldn’t see you leavin me
now you’re not around
and my whole world is falling to the ground
now you’ve left and gone away
i heard the other day
you found someone new
can’t explain in words what i’m feelin
but i’m sure it shows
must admit i was wrong
for putting you second and then stealing
all the love you gave to me
i’m probably where i belong
sorry for the late apology
i never meant to let you down
i just couldn’t see you leavin me
now you’re not around
and my whole world is falling to the ground
now you’ve left and gone away
i heard the other day
you found someone new
somebody new
i never meant to let you down
i just couldn’t see you leavin me
now you’re not around
