Because We Can
I don't wanna be another wave in the ocean
I am a rock not just another grain of sand
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
I ain't a soldier but I'm here to take a stand
Because we can

She's in the kitchen staring out the window
So tired of living life in black and white
Right now she's missing those technicolor kisses
When he turns down the lights

Lately he's feeling like a broken promise
In the mirror staring down his doubt
There's only one thing in this world that he knows
He said forever and he'll never let her down

I don't wanna be another wave in the ocean
I am a rock not just another grain of sand
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
I ain't a soldier but I'm here to take a stand
Because we can

TV and takeout on the coffee table
Paper dishes, pour a glass of wine
Turn down the sound and move a little closer
And for the moment everything is alright

I don't wanna be another wave in the ocean
I am a rock not just another grain of sand
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
I ain't a soldier but I'm here to take a stand

Because we can, our love can move a mountain
We can, if you believe in we
We can, just wrap your arms around me
We can, we can

I don't wanna be another wave in the ocean
I am a rock not just another grain of sand
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
I ain't a soldier but I'm here to take a stand

I don't wanna be another wave in the ocean
I am a rock not just another grain of sand
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
I ain't a soldier but I'm here to take a stand

Because we can, our love can move a mountain
We can, if you believe in we
We can, just wrap your arms around me
We can, we can
Because we can
 
 
I'm with You
Look at this world
It's filled with worn out faces
Forgotten places and nothing changes
Whatever happened to that new day rising
We're just surviving when living is dying

Aren't you tired of being let down?
Another day, another shakedown

I'm with you

When hope is gone and all you want is the truth
(I'm with you)
You carry on when they say, "It's no use"
(I'm with you)

If I got one thing, I got something to prove
We all got nothing if there's nothing to lose
(I'm with you)

I walk in shadows that seem all familiar
I've read the papers, life forsaken
A vacant store front, I want more for sale sign
Down on main street you just walk by

How many times we gotta break down
Before somebody's gonna shout out?

I'm with you

When hope is gone and all you want is the truth
(I'm with you)
You carry on when they say, "It's no use"
(I'm with you)

If I got one thing, I got something to prove
We all got nothing if there's nothing to lose
(I'm with you)

When hope is gone and all you want is the truth
(I'm with you)
You carry on when they say, "It's no use" (you say, "It's no use")

Well, I've got one thing, I got something to prove
We all got nothing if there's nothing to lose
(I'm with you)

I'm with you.
I'm with you.
I'm with you.
 
 
What About Now
You wanna start a fire
It only takes a spark
You gotta get behind the wheel
If you're ever gonna drive that car

If you wanna take a bite
You'd better have the teeth
If you're gonna take that step
Then get up off of your knees

'Cause tonight we're alive

Who'll stand for the restless and the lonely?
For the desperate and the hungry?
Time for the count, I'm hearing you now.
For the faithful, the believer,
For the faithless and the teacher.
Stand up and be proud...
What about now?

You wanna start a fight
You gotta take a swing.
You gotta get your hands in the dirt
To see what the harvest will bring.

You wanna raise your voice
Don't be scared to breathe
Don't be afraid to hurt
Don't be ashamed in need

'Cause tonight we're alive

Who'll stand for the restless and the lonely?
For the desperate and the hungry?
Time for the count, I'm hearing you now.
For the faithful, the believer,
For the faithless and the teacher.
Stand up and be proud...
What about now?

The leaves fall like reasons that drift through the seasons
'Til dreams are just fade dark and grey.
And all of your plans that slip right through your hands
Are just things that you take to your grave.

Tonight we're alive.

Who'll stand for the restless, for the lonely?
For the desperate and the hungry?
Time for the count, I'm hearing you now.
For the faithful, the believer,
For the faithless and the teacher.
Stand up and be proud...
What about now?
What about now?
What about now?
What about now?
 
 
Pictures of You
I feel just like Picasso
And you're my masterpiece
I painted you a lifetime
Now what's left are memories
Oooh

Sunlight's in the curtains
Diamonds in the trees
I gave you colors blue and gold
As you lay upon the sheets
Something so familiar drawn from this blank page
Every line from my hand takes me back to what I can't erase
No matter how I try, no matter what I do
I'm still painting pictures of you

I could almost smell your perfume
In each brush stroke of the flowers
I left you tea from China
Waiting in your sacred tower
Something so familiar drawn from this blank page
Every line from my hand takes me back to what I can't erase
No matter how I try, no matter what I do
I'm still painting pictures of you

If I should go crazy, if I would go blind
I'd still fill the canvas from the pictures in my mind
If that's the only way to make you mine

It was something so familiar
Drawn from this blank page
Every line from my hand takes me back to what I can't erase
No matter how I try, no matter what I do
I'm still painting pictures, I'm always painting pictures
Still painting pictures of you

Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh...
 
 
Amen
Last night I had a dream
The dream I had was true
I fell through the stars
Went walking on the moon
Burned like a thousand candles in her arms

The skin under my finger tips
Honeysuckle on her lips
Sweeter than a man deserves to taste
Mercy, mercy, what else can I say?

But Amen. Amen

Last night we were born together
It was like we'd always been
She'll be with me forever
If I don't see her again
We poured the wine until our cup ran over

Unfolding like the mystery
Inside of her like poetry
A thousand horses running through my veins
Mercy, mercy what else can I say

But Amen, Amen

I laid down in her garden
Naked on her floor
Windows up, the curtains blowing
She don't lock the door

Amen, Amen

At the banquet table
A beggar at a feast
I felt her tongue between her lips
And I forgot to breath
We stayed there 'til the candles burned the carpet

Last night I had a dream
The dream I had was true
Mercy, mercy, what else can I say
Mercy, mercy, I laid down and prayed
 
 
That's What the Water Made Me
Baby, baby, baby
There's no use in trying to save me
There's devils in heaven
There's angels in hell
So, blow me one last kiss
And wish me well, well

Love is like fingerprints
They don't wash away.
I left mine all over you.
I take the blame.

Ask me how
Ask me what
Ask me why, baby

That's what the water made me
That's who I am and what I'll be
That's what the water, that's what the water made me
There ain't no doubt about it
It makes you or brings to your knees
That's what the water, that's what the water made me

This world is cracked and crazy.
Say one of your pretty prayers for me.
No rose in the garden
Or wish in the well.

I don't know how
Don't know what
Don't know why, baby

That's what the water made me
That's who I am and what I'll be
That's what the water, that's what the water made me
There ain't no doubt about it
It makes you or brings to your knees
That's what the water, that's what the water made me
That's what the water, that's what the water...

Ask me how,
Ask me what,
Ask me why...

Baby, baby, baby
There's no use in trying to save me
There's devils in heaven
There's angels in hell

(Hold me close, hold me close, hold me)

That's what the water made me
That's who I am and what I'll be
That's what the water, that's what the water made me
There ain't no doubt about it
It makes you or brings to your knees
That's what the water, that's what the water...
 
 
What's Left of Me
For thirty odd years I was a newspaper man
I made my living with a pen and a pad
God I miss the smell of paper and the ink on my hands

Been back from the desert for a year or so
I left more in that sand than you'll ever know
Another war was waiting for me when I got back home

In the name of the flag some gave their lives
I'm still living, yeah, Semper Fi
Well, that's my story, what else can I say
Hey, hey

I got a lot to give say can you see
I'm still breathing and my heart still beats
They took the car but they left the lease
Does anybody want what's left of me?

Boarded up the house, they left the keys
Foreclosed on my city, rolled up these streets
But I ain't checking out, I still got my dreams
Does anybody want what's left of me?
Hey, hey, hey, hey

They called us "Dirty Harry", we're a punk rock band
Why they sold old CBGB's I don't understand
All that's left now are the t-shirts and they come from Japan

I sold my drums to make ends meet
The band broke up, we had to eat
It's the same old shit, it just happens more these days,
Hey, hey

I got a lot to give say can you see
I'm still breathing and my heart still beats
They took the car but they left the lease
Does anybody want what's left of me?

Boarded up the house, they left the keys
Foreclosed on my city, rolled up these streets
But I ain't checking out, I still got my dreams
Does anybody want what's left of me?
Hey, hey, hey, hey

I'm a teacher, I'm a farmer, I'm a union man
It's getting hard to make a living in this hard land
We ain't working in our factories, all those jobs went overseas.
Hey, hey.

Does anybody want, does anybody want,
Does anybody want what's left of me?

I got a lot to give, say can you see
I'm still breathing and my heart still beats
They took the car but they left the lease
Does anybody want what's left of me?

Does anybody want to buy or rent,
Take a chance or place a bet?
I ain't checking out, I still got my dreams
Does anybody want what's left of me?
Hey, hey, hey, hey.

Does anybody want, does anybody want,
Does anybody want what's left of me?
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Does anybody want, does anybody want,
Does anybody want what's left of me?
 
 
Army of One
I'm in this war
But got no gun
Still standing strong
An army of one
So sign me up
I'm a soldier

I've got a voice
It's all I need
A beating heart inside of me
I'm an army of one
I'm a soldier

These eyes hold no disguise
We're fighting for our lives
We're all trying to get back home tonight

Never give up
Never give up
Never
Never give up
Never let up
Ever
Never give in
You're an army of one

Never give up
Never give up
Never
Never forget
Where you're from
Never give up
You're an army of one

I can't hurt but I still feel
I know that life's a battlefield
When the times get tough
I'm a soldier

And when it's time to face the fight
With just my shadow at my side
I'm an army of one
I'm a soldier

Never give up
Never give up
Never
Never give up
Never let up
Ever
Never give in
You're an army of one

Never give up
Never give up
Never
Never forget
Where you're from
Never give up
You're an army of one

So don't apologize
Defend, just be alive
We're all trying
To get it right tonight

Never give up
Never give up
Never
Never give up
Never let up
Ever
Never give in
You're an army of one

Never give up
Never give up
Never
Never forget
Where you're from
Never give up
You're an army of one
 
 
Thick As Thieves
In an empty room or a downtown bar
'Cross the universe, there's no place too far
Ya wherever you are, you and me
Thick as thieves

Well it ain't always pretty, sometimes it got rough
Could have thrown the towel in and thrown our hands up
Seems like we've always been and always will be
Thick as thieves

Time, time won't ever drag us down
You, me, us, ain't looking back or turning around
It's classic boy meets girl, with our backs against the world
You and me
Thick as thieves

In a world without faith, you're what I believe
When they're stacking the deck,
You're the card up my sleeve in my hour of need,
You and me, yeah
Thick as thieves

And that are all that's left behind us now
You, me, us, ain't looking back or turning around
It's classic boy meets girl, with our backs against the world
You and me
Thick as thieves

If I robbed a bank you wouldn't care
You'd come sit on my lap in the electric chair
And when they flipped the switch, huh, we'd just kiss

I know nothing's gonna stop us now
You, me, us, on the edge and never looking down
What's a boy to do, it's classic me and you
Lucky you, lucky me
Thick as thieves, oooh

Thick as thieves, woah, woah.
 
 
Beautiful World
Every day it's the same when they say that it might be the end
In the end when it ends then I'll listen to them
You wake up, go to work, go to sleep
Then you do it, you do it, if you're lucky then you do it again
Yeah, we walk through a world that we don't understand
When I look in your eyes I'm just happy I can
Yeah, we'll laugh and we'll cry and we'll lose and we'll win
We'll get through it and to prove it yeah we'll do it again

There's glory in the saddest story
Look at it, just sticks and bricks
Makes you wonder how the pieces fit
Where we're going where we've been
This ain't paradise we're living in
It's a diamond, it's a dirty blasted pearl
Ah, but ain't it a beautiful world

It's a shame when they say that it's been done and said
They keep digging that grave let them bury their heads
There's a kid with a dream and a sky full of stars
There's another first kiss in the back of some car
Turn a page and write the story

Look at it, just sticks and bricks
Makes you wonder how the pieces fit
Where we're going where we've been
This ain't paradise we're living in
It's a diamond, it's a dirty blasted pearl
Ah, but ain't it a beautiful world

They're running numbers out of the Spanish coast
Where merry Mary sends her rose
We get a ladder, there's a cat up in a tree
Ah

The Pretzel man's wearing Gucci glasses
A widow spreads her lovers ashes
I'll hold on to you, hold on to me, yeah
We'll do it, we'll do it, yeah, we're lucky then we'll do it again
Ah

Look at it, just sticks and bricks
Makes you wonder how the pieces fit
Where we're going, where we've been
This ain't paradise we're living in
It's a diamond, it's a dirty blasted pearl
Ah, but ain't it a beautiful world
Oh, ain't it a beautiful world
Oh, oh ain't it a beautiful world.
 
 
Room at the End of the World
There's a room at the end of the world
Where my secrets go to hide
There's a room at the end of the world
Where I'll wait for you tonight

Where the roads all go to end
Where lost Valentines get sent
Where a rose comes back to life
Where young love never dies
Where we never say goodbye

Don't say no, just give in
Close your eyes, there's no sin
Don't hold back, just let go
Take your time, take it slow
It's me and you in our room at the end of the world

There's a room at the end of the world
Where your memories are safe
There's a room at the end of the world
Just gotta have some faith

Where all prayers go to be heard and the truth will have its turn
Take a look into these eyes, there's no place I'd rather be tonight
No place I'd rather be tonight

Don't say no, just give in
Close your eyes, there's no sin
Don't hold back, just let go
Take your time, take it slow
It's me and you in our room at the end of the world

There's no looking back in our room
Fade to black

There's a room at the end of the world
That I hang on to
There's a room at the end of the world
Where I wait for you,
I'll wait for you

Don't say no, just give in
Close your eyes, there's no sin
Don't hold back, just let go
Take your time, take it slow
It's me and you in our room at the end of the world

Where I wait for you in our room
Dreams are coming true in our room
It's just me and you in our room.
 
 
The Fighter
I should write down these words 'fore I lose them
Or write you a song just to use them
Someday you may wanna know who I am,
Beyond this facade no guitar in my hand
No I am not a writer

These eyes hold no secrets I hide no truths
I am all I am, all I was to you
The lie and the promise, the great escape artist,
The weed in your garden in that place you're still guarding
Where I am not a liar

I am the fighter, though not a boxer by trade
I am the fighter, few will remember my name

These are hands that can offer protection
But hid me from my own reflection
I'm that book that ain't finished, a sink full of dishes,
The horse that ain't winning, the priest that's still sinning
The spark that starts the fire

I am the fighter, though not a boxer by trade
I am the fighter, few will remember my name

With loneliness next to me, feels its misery, nursing another black eye
On the New Jersey turnpike, counting the headlights
Those cars just like days pass me by

I am the fighter, though not a boxer by trade
I am the fighter, few will remember my name
I am the fighter, though not a boxer by trade
I am the fighter, a fighter's born but not made

I should write down these words 'fore I lose them
Or write you a song just to use them.
