I didn’t take it – My chances are slipping away They’re floating like clouds on a very sunny day I should’ve faced it – In case it should come round again You just never know cause it happens now and then… So many questions with answers that I never knew They weigh on my mind but I always make it through I wouldn’t say it – Just let it run wild in my head I’ve heard it before but the words have all been said… It’s time to be leaving – Because time keeps on slipping away It doesn’t have to be – It doesn’t have to be that way… I didn’t chase it - but still it keeps coming around Tied to a boulder that always drags me down And I can’t break it – Though God knows the way that I’ve tried I’m running away but there’s no place left to hide. It’s time to be leaving – Because time keeps on slipping away It shouldn’t have to be – It shouldn’t have to be that way…

There are reasons why I love you There are reasons why I care There are reasons without question I don’t need to understand There are reasons why I want you There are reasons to stay true There are reasons that may linger I don’t need to think it through Every day – I don’t have to worry if I’ll Change the way that I feel inside Anyway, it isn’t a contemplation If I should stay when I just enjoy the ride There are reasons why I’m happy There are reasons I’m not sad There are reasons we’re together I don’t need to understand… I don’t need to understand… I don’t need to understand at all

I’m not telling you something I’m not telling you things you don’t already know I’m not telling you nothing… But sometimes you just have to let it go… I’m not talking about it I’m not moving an inch across that line I’m not dancing around it The less you know means everything is fine… I’m not telling you nothing You already know what is yours and is mine I’m not shouting about it Until someone walks across that line I’m not telling you nothing You already know what is yours and is mine I’m not shouting about it Until someone walks across that line

Smile 03:10
Smile Light up the sky with your eyes Don’t let the world pass you by Even if you have to try Live Laugh at the things that go wrong Even if you must be strong Know that you always belong If you give me your hand, I’ll take you home For there isn’t a moment when you’re alone… Dance For all of the plans that we made And know that the darkness will fade There isn’t a moment to waste Love Is if you could never be hurt Even when facing the worst And know that it’s needed the most If you still need a reason to let things go I’ll give you the answer and then you’ll know… Smile Light up the sky with your eyes Don’t let the world pass you by Even if you have to try

Well maybe I’m the bad guy here But maybe things are so unclear That thoughts get twisted up inside the places that you like to hide And even though it makes no sense You go and build another fence Another obstacle to face A memory that you can’t erase Well maybe you’re right – Maybe I’m wrong Maybe it’s time we move along Well as for me there’s just one girl I’ve wanted in this great big world Now I can see so much potential draining like its expediential You lie awake in bed each night Just building up the kryptonite that takes away my super powers Then claim I send you tainted flowers Well maybe you’re right – Maybe I’m wrong Maybe we’re playing different songs Well maybe you’re right – Maybe I’m wrong Maybe it’s time we move along I don’t know why it’s so uncool And why I have to play the fool When I’m the one who wants to stay when you just want to turn away And though you say it’s no big deal It doesn’t change the way I feel The seconds turning into hours and all I send is tainted flowers Well maybe you’re right – Maybe I’m wrong Maybe it’s time we move along

Drops of red, drops of green These yellow eyes have never seen Drops of purple, drops of pink It’s just enough to make you think Drops of crimson, drops of gold These youthful mind was once so old Drops of orange, drops of brown There’s nothing in to keep you down It’s raining colors everywhere… It’s raining colors everywhere… So come out and play… Drops of aqua, drops of grey Come again some other day Drops of dark and drops of light To wash away the black and white It’s raining colors everywhere… It’s raining colors everywhere… It’s raining colors everywhere… It’s raining colors everywhere… So come out and play… Drops of silver, drops of blue For all the things we didn’t do Drops of tan and drops of teal The very thought is so surreal So surreal So surreal So surreal

Anyway 02:32
Yours is a common story It’s happening every day Nothings is so disgraceful Nothing you can’t erase No situation left here for all the world to hold Time is the classic healer and everything’s growing old So long to the circles that went around your mind Those thoughts that once controlled you Things you may have left behind… No matter what’s been done through all those words they say No matter who you were I will love you anyway Everyone has their shadows and clouds hanging overhead Everyone has a secret hiding in some book they read So long to the circles that went around your mind Those thoughts that once controlled you Things you may have left behind… No matter what’s been done through all those words they say No matter who you were I will love you anyway

Sometimes I do things that I don’t understand And sometimes I’m not quite myself And somehow I let things slip right through my hands I see it was all a mistake I thought that your heart wouldn’t break I love you so much and I’m feeling so lonely I cry every night as I sit by the phone I’ll never replace what I see as the only thing I’ve ever know Sometimes I lie in bed and just stare at the wall And think how unhappy I was till I met you And somehow, late the other night, I made myself such a fool To think that your heart wouldn’t break I see it was all a mistake… I love you so much and I’m giving so little We both know that feelings are so hard to give I promise I’ll always be standing beside you as long as I live As long as I live… I love you so much and I’m feeling so lonely I cry every night as I sit by the phone I’ll never replace what I see as the only thing I’ve ever know I love you so much and I’m giving so little We both know that feelings are so hard to give I promise I’ll always be standing beside you as long as I live As long as I live… As long as I live… As long as I live… Long…

Somehow we lost you Somehow you tried to disappear But you’re still here My heart is resisting the thought that you may have moved on But you’re not gone And thought you left us you have not gone far You’re every note I play on my guitar Still when I think of all the moments passed I close my eyes and I can hear you laugh with me Laugh with me Sometimes I call you Sometimes I’m speaking to thin air But I feel you there My mind is insisting That I accept what we should know But I can’t let go Although the days will come and fade away There is a presence that will always stay And when it seems you took a different path I close my eyes and I can hear you laugh with me Laugh with me… I think about the things we used to do And how it all came back to me and you I guess you had to set your spirit free So I will close my eyes and you will laugh with me… Laugh with me… Somehow we lost you…

Arapaho 02:42
Yeah I’m gonna wear my pain like it’s war paint Yeah I’m gonna face this day loud and brave Thunder and lightning that they will remember From this moment through the rest of their days So they want to change our ways in the heartland Then they want to take our lives on the plains We drown in cries where no one surrenders Even if only an echo remains… We call upon the one great spirit who lives up where the eagles fly Fill us all with strength and courage to live the truth or fight and die Faith seems to pierce my heart like an arrow And cover doubt wherever it lays The spirit has always been there deep within me From my birth throughout the rest of my days…

Time is moving slowly Set as you want it to be Waiting for resistance from the other side of the sea Sad that there’s a problem Sad that they never agree Always it’s a problem on the other side of the sea What if it rains on the parade? Will the sky fall down? And what if the pain, in aftermath, won’t subside, leaving us to drown? What if it rains on the parade? Will the ground fall out? And what if the strain, the severed ties, washed away all we’re all about? So we move in slowly Holding so they never break free Still the bombs are falling on the other side of the sea…

She told me that she plans to go and help an old friend feeling low It’s really not her cross to bear It’s like she’s having an affair… I see the distance in her eyes The kind of look that I despise Somehow I’m not supposed to care It’s like she’s having an affair… I don’t know what this may invite Cause something here just isn’t right From where I stand it isn’t fair It’s like she’s having an affair… I see the smile upon her face as she talks about some other place I don’t remember being there I think she’s having an affair…
