There are things we don't understand That we may never will Like why does man always fight with man For anything and everything But we still find a way to live And survive and be happy But did you ever try to understand That this may be apathy I will try to show my light I will try for you I will try to show my light I will try for you You never know there's a problem Until it's way too late Fear and hate start to grip the minds And fear makes one an easy prey I will try to show my light I will try for you I will try to show my light I will try for you I will try to show my light I will try for you I will try to show my light I will try for you

How do you know when enough is enough How do you know when too much is too much Won't somebody tell me before I lost my mind How do you know when you've gone the wrong way Doesn't it always seem to early to say Won't somebody tell me before I go insane Oh that real love That real love That real love May it guide me How do you live with such rapid change You blink your eyes and ain't nothing the same Won't somebody tell me so I can live my life With that real love That real love That real love May it guide us Note by note step by step Be limitless be patient Note by note step by step Be limitless be patient With that real love That real love That real love May it guide us

Young child free and wild Never change stay the same But others will tell you to grow up Rid you of your light and your love Lose your imagination lose your mind Lost in time in time in time in time Young woman emancipation Finally free to chase your dreams But others will tell you that you can't It's your spirit that they cannot stand For their sprits have been lost In time in time in time Old man veteran In your eyes wisdom lies But others will treat you like a child As you force them to reconcile That everything will be lost In time in time in time

When I was a young girl My daddy told me so He said now you're alive girl The blues are in your soul I don't understand I said I don't know what you mean He said that's because I see what I want to see I lost my favorite toy I fell from a tree I found my first boy And he showed me Now that I'm older I see more clearly But I am still guilty I still see what I want to see Live fast and die hard that's what the kids say Longer that I live the more I wanna see another day Live fast and die hard that's what the kids say Longer that I live the more I wanna see another day Oh but I don't care I'm gonna do it my way No matter what This world spins around It'll chew you up And spit you right back out Some stand back up some sink in defeat One sees it all the other sees what they want to see So with my head high I follow my nose Sometimes I can fly Sometimes I lose control I don't understand I say my eyes confuse me Lately I've seen more than I want to see Live fast and die hard that's what the kids say Longer that I live the more I wanna see another day Live fast and die hard that's what the kids say Longer that I live the more I wanna see another day Oh but I don't care I'm gonna do it my way

They say freedom is in the mind Well we lose our freedom when we get too scared to fight One step forward is another step farther behind Hardly nothing can make me cry But when I saw history repeat I wiped my eyes One step forward is another step farther behind You see I go out on the corner and bare my soul Play my guitar strings until my fingers swill I don't make much money and they treat me mean But I know that this creation keeps my heart beating We lose this music when we fall for the dollar signs One step forward is another step farther behind [solo] You see I grab pen and paper and bare my soul Expose my tender heart for the world to know It ain't about the money or the popularity It's the healing and the love and the connectivity We lose this music when we fall for the dollar signs One step forward is another step farther behind What I say One step forward is another step farther behind And I'll keep playing 'til the sun goes down on my life.

Dance he said dance like you'll never dance again Laugh he said laugh like you'll never laugh again He died a young man but seemed an old man He saw not the end but a way to begin again So tell me once tell me twice tell me that I'll never die When you like won't you please tell me why When you can't then I'll search for the answers But I'll get lost and find more to wonder Like why the dead man knows it all And why I feel alone And why I try to fly but always fall back to earth [guitar solo] And when I die I'll know it all I accept that I am alone And I will try to fly but I will fall back to earth

You impress me The way you test me Spinnin' circles around my head You make me realize That I've been lonely You make me realize I need a man You are what I need I never wanna be alone Yeah your body's what I need To keep me warm to keep me warm Your love is what I need I'm starving on my own Oh you are what I need Feels I've been sleeping But I've been hiding And I've been searching Searching for you Doors I'd open would lead to nowhere Roads I'd follow would never end So you are what I need I'll never get lost again Yeah your hands are what I need To carry the light to carry the light Your body's what I need To keep me warm to keep me warm Oh you are what I need You impress me The way you test me Take my body and set it free You make me realize that there's a difference Between what i want And what I need And what I need

In the stars I see my history But in the clouds I see your face You make me feel like I am missing Drifting off in outer space And in the stars I see my destiny But in you I see my fate How many years before you find me Is how many that I will wait Let me show you I'm your only instinct Let me show you I'm the only one 'Cos I know that you're my only instinct And together we could have some fun There's a way the world it moves us And the timing's always right So what will be will always be No matter how hard we fight Let me show you I'm your only instinct Let me show you I'm the only one 'Cos I know that you're my only instinct And together we could have some fun [solo] Let me show you I'm your only instinct Let me show you I'm the only one 'Cos I know that you're my only instinct And together we could have some fun Let me show you I'm your only instinct Let me show you I'm the only one 'Cos I know that you're my only instinct And together we could have some fun

Do you hear that baby? That's the sound of time rollin on Do you hear that baby? That's the sound of time rollin on You wake up in the morning Before you know it the evening's already gone Are you sure you hear that baby? Cos I hear it everyday You don't act like you hear that baby Cos for me I can't get away The more you choose to ignore it The fast you'll reach your dying day How do you live knowing each moment could be your last? Some people drink some people smoke all to run away from this fact No matter how you choose to do it That old clock is always on your ass Time keeps rollin, time keeps rollin on With or without you baby, with or without you baby Time keeps rollin, time keeps rollin on With or without you baby, with or without you baby Time keeps rollin, time keeps rollin on With or without you baby, with or without you baby

I live in a little house on the side of the street Where the grass is dead but they water the concrete In the summer I watch the people float by In the winter I watch them weep and cry I live in a little house on the side of the street I live in a little house on the side of the road Where the people starve just to feed their cars and boats In the fall the men they stomp in shout In the spring the women frolick about I live in a little house on the side of the road Oh try to believe That work will set you free Only wise men see that we were always free I live in a place where the people wonder why Why the grass is always greener on the other side In the day they go to work and wait In the night they drink their fears away I live in a place where the people wonder why Oh try to believe That work will set you free Only wise men see that we were always free Oh try to believe That work will set you free Oh try to believe That work will set you free Only wise men see that we were always free
